(Personal Attendant) Rinpoche taking care of student who was ill

This section features articles and true stories written by Tsem Rinpoche’s personal attendant Pastor Loh Seng Piow. Being Rinpoche’s personal attendant means that I am able to witness real Dharma in action, both on and off the throne. I consider myself extremely fortunate, and at the same time it is also a great challenge to instill Dharma in my life 24/7.

Over the years I have witnessed many cases of how Rinpoche helped many people in both worldly and supramundane ways, it is my wish that through these stories many will be inspired to achieve the state of compassion and attainments like Tsem Rinpoche, so that many more sentient beings can be helped.

Pastor Loh Seng Piow

—————–

 

Few days ago Liaison Ooi Beng Kooi fell sick and Tsem Rinpoche was very concerned, so Rinpoche sent His students to deliver food for Beng Kooi, and personally went over to Beng Kooi’s house to make sure she ate well, and Rinpoche gave her a healing massage after that and sent her to rest. Tsem Rinpoche’s compassion is not only shown in his teachings on the throne, but Rinpoche really practices what he taught off the throne as shown by many of these examples of going all the way to care for sentient beings.

    Rinpoche cares for every sentient being, any being that needs help. It is not just to human beings. Rinpoche has taught us to care for each other, and for animals that may need our help and voices to voice out for things.

    Through this we can tell how much Rinpoche cares for us, going to the extend to help us with all the different and even doing things for us. Be it with us knowing it or not, Rinpoche will definitely be doing something for us. Rinpoche cares and gives the best that Rinpoche can provide that all who needs it.

  2. Julien Roth on Sep 11, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Rinpoche, is so kind. He actually gets out of his comfort zone to help others. That is very nice of Rinpoche to do that. We are all very lucky to be able to have such a kind and loving teacher as Rinpoche.

  3. Lucas Roth on Feb 15, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    i knew that Rinpoche is a amazing,kind,giving,compassionate,full of wisdom and the kindest man i have ever met. we all love you Rinpoche! Please live long so you can spread the dharma. one more good thing about him is that he looks after so many people and he does it perfectly. Please Live long Rinpoche

  4. Frederick Law on Jul 22, 2012 at 3:46 am

    this is what we hardly see offline, truly compassion in action. The love and care of Rinpoche to his students is just without words to describe, pure caring and kindness. May Rinpoche have a good health and long life, may many more sentient benefit from Rinpoche kindness and activity. :)

  5. winnie on Jul 21, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    在这社会里要找个一有资格的上师实在不容易,他就是我们尊敬的仁波切。我个人也赞同这几句话,仁波切就像是一本活生生的佛经,真是我们学习的对象。

  6. Irene Lim on Jul 21, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Rinpoche has been the father and mother to all his students. Whatever the case may be Rinpoche is always motivated by care and compassion. Meeting Rinpoche must have been our good merits gained from our virtue.

  7. sweekeong on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Beng Kooi pushes herself a lot for others, and her staff. I respect her dedications in doing dharma work to benefit others. Many good qualities to learn from her :)

  8. Jace Chong on Jul 18, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    仁波切身体力行的佛法非常赞!!他就像是我们的父母一样慈悲地照顾着我们。

    一位真正上师照顾弟子不止是外在,而是弟子达致证悟前的生生世世。所以当一位上师让我们皈依的时候,这是多么地珍贵啊!上师可以不顾一切地承担起让你证悟的重担子,苦口婆心地对你的缺点下药,也不忘用爱与慈悲来关怀你;这样的一位上师,甚至比一些亲生父母更疼爱孩子,这是一种真正的爱!

    感谢仁波切随时以身施教,告诉我们什么是真正的爱。

    There are so many things to learn from our respected rinpoche….his compassion, his wisdom and many more..a million tks to our rinpoche….dno

  12. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on Jul 16, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Rinpoche always care about us and for those who need helps, BK , please speedy up to recover which able to help Rinpoche to spread the dharma and benefit more being. Rejoice !

  13. grace (KSJC) on Jul 16, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Beng Kooi is a very nice person and always ready to help us when we in need.from the picture i can felt the strong concern and care that Rinpoche show toward his student.how fortunate we are to have a true guru so close to us and care for us.

  14. pat on Jul 16, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Beng Kooi never sleeps and always working and running around doing dharma work……something to admire and learn from her… go all the way for Dharma.Rinpoche always love and care for everyone regardless of who, what & when…

  15. Albert Ratchaga on Jul 15, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    A normal Boss from any of the company will just approve the medical leave for the staff who fall sick, they would not do anything else like go visit them etc. Because there is nothing to do with the company, it is just plain trade of business benefits of each other.

    But Tsem Rinpoche is different, when his student fall sick, he does go visit them in house or hospital, and not only that, he will personally make sure they are well taken care of before he leave the place. Such compassion and care towards the students, where else in this world can we find?

  16. henry ooi on Jul 15, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    The first time I interacted with Beng Kooi (BK) was when she volunteered to check stocks in Kechara Mystical Treasures, then situated in Bangsar. The next time was when we were in Bali with Rinpoche and a few other Kecharians. Beng Kooi may be small in stature but she zipped around places we visited like a mouse, no pun intended. Since then until now, BK is energetic as ever and very hardworking. Kechara eDiv would not be the same without her.

  17. Jutika Lam on Jul 15, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche never fails to give the best he can do to take care of his students, here are some examples on how he has shown to my brother and me… Like the time he gave us a Manjushri Statue, some comics and story’s on The Buddha or the time he gave us some Star Wars toys, a bottle of vitamins and he even gave us a photo frame of 9 Wonderful Buddha’s which are Tsongkhapa, Manjushri, Setrap, Green Tara, White Tara, Vajrayoghini, Medicine Buddha, Four Armed Avalokiteshvara, Shakyamuni. He aso takes care of his students by making sure they eat. This shows how kind and compassionate he is.

  18. Andrew James Boon on Jul 15, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Beng Kooi is like a robot. She pushes herself all the time and often beyond the limitations of her own body. The beauty of it is that she is convinced she is above the limitations of her body and will push herself till there is an intervention. Rinpoche knows this and of course will intervene when is needed because Rinpoche cares for each and everyone of his students and all sentient beings.

    BK’s (as she is affectionately known to us in Kechara) focus is clear and goes all the way in serving Rinpoche and the Dharma. She is indeed the epitome of a model student.

    She is resilient, thoughtful, intelligent, absorbs teachings like a sponge, intuitive, has initiative and is resourceful.

    Get well soon BK!

    Thank you again Rinpoche for showing us your compassion and Dharma in action!

  19. Girlie Ooi on Jul 14, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    BK works so hard, she does not even take a rest. The only time for her to rest is when she falls sick and that is bad for her body. Here Rinpoche’s care goes into action, showing us that spontaneity and compassion that comes from Him.

    Take care BK.

  20. lucy yap on Jul 14, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Love does not have to be confined to “romantic” love.It can extend to include people whom we truly love and to those closest to us..These include our immediate family,friends and other such individuals who have left a mark on our lives.
    Rinpoche always love and care for his students and everyone alike.
    Everyone of us have benefited from Rinpoche’s kindness and care.

  21. Low ksjc on Jul 14, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow. For sharing this information about our Compassionate Guru with us.For some,seeing is believing but we never doubted our kind guru love for his students as this is often shown in his concern through his Dharma sharing with us.
    Dear Beng Kooi may you get well soon, you have lots of friends who is very concern for your speedy recovery.

  22. jennifer on Jul 14, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Rinpoche is the true embodiment of Love, Compassion and Care. The utmost detailed care Rinpoche has shown and given to everyone is so very very heartwarming.
    Behg Kooi, please rest well and recover most soon.
    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing with us.oboe

  23. EricLee KHJB on Jul 14, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    要拥有慈悲心,要善待身边的每一个人,他绝对不是佛教徒的口号罢了,而是应该用在日常的生活上。 像我的上师一样,他像是一本活生生的佛经,他身体力行佛陀的教导,凡事都以其他人的利益为主,无私的付出,是我们学习的对象。连像上师那么崇高的人,都得要放下身段来表现佛法的教导,更何况是我们这些凡人。我相信,只要学习上师吩咐我们的去做,我相信我们的生活会越来越好。

  24. Siong Woan on Jul 14, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    If I am to name anyone who truly and compassionately walk his talk, he will be Rinpoche. His teaching does not change and he practices what he taught on the throne and over social media.

    While being the lucky ones who have the merits of meeting our Guru in tis life time, we ‘ask not what our guru can do for us, ask what we could do for our guru’ so he can help more people.

  25. Milly on Jul 14, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Rinpoche’s care and compassion encompasses all sentient beings all the time (on & off throne). Many people who are not students of Rinpoche have also received help. Beng Kooi works very hard but she must take care of her health too to enable her to soar in her Dharma work. I wish you speedy recovery.

  26. patsy on Jul 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Rinpoche’s care and compassion for everyone and every being is consistent. He is there for everyone 24/7. He is shining example of a Lama who puts compassion into action. Beng Kooi works very hard with no complaints and even though she is sick she still push herself. With Rinpoche’s healing touch, may Beng Kooi get well soon.

  27. Louise on Jul 14, 2012 at 9:21 am

    Dear Beng Kooi ,

    Please recovery speedy. And take good care your body. We need the body to make us go more far !!

    Dear all,

    I love Rinpoche. Because Rinpoche always care in action.

    We must learn from it !!

  28. Carmen on Jul 14, 2012 at 12:54 am

    Having Rinpoche massage you is like having a Buddha’s healing hands on you. The energy that can be transferred from Rinpoche to Beng Kooi, is healing. It’s like how energy transference works, reiki and energy healing, but of course with Rinpoche, it’s akin to being treated and healed by a Buddha. How fortunate.

    Beng Kooi works very hard, and when she falls sick, she still pushes herself to do her work, so that others are not affected and they are benefitted regardless. Rinpoche has said that everyone deserves a friend like Beng Kooi. After being her PA for some time and observing her, there is no doubt about that statement. I’m glad to have met BK and the many more Beng Kooi-like people here in Kechara.

    Rinpoche’s compassion, kindness, and care is endless. This is a shining example of a Lama who puts into action all that he preaches on the throne. On or off the throne, Rinpoche’s qualities remain as the Lamrim is in Rinpoche.

  29. nicholas on Jul 13, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Rinpoche always care to all of his students. Rinpoche genuine compassion and sincerity has been consistent and it’s a great learning for me to take care our dharma brothers and sisters as they are very hardworking.

    Thanks Seng Piow for the sharing and Rinpoche unconditional love always felt by Rinpoche action and we all can never able to repay but by only work harder in our dharma work to benefits others.

  30. Cynthia Ng on Jul 13, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    祝明贵早日康复,明贵是一位努力,聪明而且很忠心的一位学生。仁波切对她的照顾与关怀超出界限,仁波切的关爱是以实际行动来关怀。很感动看到仁波切帮生病的明贵做按摩以解除她的病情,仁波切此举动犹如亲身父母的关爱一样,这个是仁波切不为人知的行为,感谢胜彪分享。

  31. Datuk May on Jul 13, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this story on how Rinpoche loves and cares for all of us. Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion to all sentient beings always brings tears of joy to my eyes.

    However, what makes the tears flow more is when this question arises in my mind, WHAT DO I GIVE BACK TO MY PRECIOUS GURU. So little because the greatest gift to my Guru is my mind transformation. How I struggle for that to happen and how often I would disappoint my Guru.

    I will constantly read the 8 verses of mind transformation and 9 attitudes of Guru Devotion and until I die I will never give up.

    May I, one day return my Guru’s kindness and compassion through my mind transformation, for my personal betterment and benefit of others around me.

  32. Judy Lam on Jul 13, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Beng Kooi always worked hard and is very committed to her work. Am sure she has recovered under the love and care of Rinpoche, who always show us the way to love and respect everyone including animals. Thank You Rinpoche

  33. Julia Tan on Jul 13, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    My eyes filled with tears when i saw this picture. Many people would not know that how much Rinpoche cares about His students. Beng Kooi is one of Rinpoche’s students who can work day in day out without sleep for dharma. She has to chased to go home. But When she’s home, she will still open up her laptop and work again. Many of the students who work very closely with Rinpoche, they go all the way for others. Rinpoche can literally cook for His students who worked very hard for dharma. Where else can find a Guru like this?

  34. Lim KH (JB) on Jul 13, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Dear Beng Kooi get well soon and dun forget to take medicine daily after back from doctor.

    Thanks Rinpoche for always compassion and care everyone hence Rinpoche always action to be an example for us. May Rinpoche long life, continue turn the Dharma wheel and always stay beside us…

  35. lewkwanleng on Jul 13, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Beng Kooi works extremely hard and smart. Rinpoche is extremely passionate. That’s all I can say…

  36. Llim Han Nee on Jul 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    For Rinpoche, care and compassion and benefiting others are his 24/7 focus. Here, he shows care for Beng Kooi (head of E-Div )when she was ill, like a mother for her child.

    Lately, he’s been making sure that departments that work round the clock, like E-Div, has food at all times. At past 1am this morning, I had a peek into their world via blog-chat. They were all enjoying themselves with delicious cup-noodles sent over by Rinpoche!

  37. Sam on Jul 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    When im in the midst of putting this note, Beng Kooi is at chat box sharing on e-Division information. I hope she is well and healthy by now. Most of all, hope she will take good care of herself while practicing Dharma work. All of us are lucky to have Rinpoche as our guru, always around for us regardless any condition. Rejoice for all of us _/\_

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.
    Please take good care :)

  38. Mei Fong on Jul 13, 2012 at 10:22 am

    We should all love Rinpoche as much or even more than how much he loves us. Rinpoche’s schedule is always packed with the ultimate objective of benefiting others and showing love and care to all sentient beings. Thank you Rinpoche. May you live long and continue to be with us.

  39. MayOng on Jul 13, 2012 at 8:38 am

    Rinpoche cares for anyone and everyone who needs help. Care comes from within. If we are not taught to care, we can learn to care.I believe action speaks louder than words.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who remains undefeated by rituals, magic, mantras, negative words, fire pujas and suppression from the highest, your time has come. Your lineage and your works will grow and expand into the three planes, ten directions and six realms as pre-ordained by the vows you took in front of Buddha and again Manjunatha Tsongkapa. May we gain your attainments and be protected by you. All beings’ sufferings be released as dedicated by the supreme Shantideva. May Dharma reign supreme and Mara’s forces by quelled.

    “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: At the end of the day, education is brainwashing. Brainwashing is inevitable. We human beings love doing that. We are already brainwashed—we don’t know otherwise. So since we are going to brainwash anyway, it’s good to brainwash with good motivation and so that we can be kind, harmonious, and also decent. Becoming decent human beings seems to be not so much in the modern education agenda because, as we all know, modern education seems to be so much about what we can have. Human beings are defined by what we have, like cars and houses. And then modern education is also so much geared towards getting a job. There are very few schools that teach you anything other than what will benefit you in getting a job”

    Lower life forms do not know about spirituality and yet they live in bliss except at times when they are predated upon. Have we ever thought of this? The lower life forms do not distinguish vices from virtues nor do they get into a process to become ‘good’. They simply are ‘being’ within the totality of reality of which they are not even conscious since they are not self-conscious beings. If that be so, why do humans make such a big deal of ‘spirituality’? This is not to cast aspersions on any analysis in spirituality but a genuine self contemplation on why we, or at least those who perceive a fundamental error in our individual or collective conduct, contemplate about this anomaly & obvious aberration in human conduct? Suppose if we just be with everything without either glorification or condemnation and be true to our being self-conscious, which faculty is given for a purpose in our evolutionary journey and dwell deep into that inquiry without any obvious answers or concepts or conclusions, we would perhaps done justice to our being self-conscious beings. But unfortunately this is not to be since we are literally obsessed with concepts, even of spirituality which does no good and of religion which has done more harm than any good and are literally living in our mental field which by itself cannot take us beyond it, if the true meaning of existence is indeed beyond it or deep within, both being a gateway for a realm that we ‘know’ exists and where we can be what we are; conscious animals in the total existential field in harmony with everything that are.

    “Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man, living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these 10 things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send *you* to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever til the end of time…but he loves you.”

    Tortoises Kadro and Menlha have been long time residences with the Kechara Organisation, taken care by many volunteers since 2009. While the animal caretakers feed and provide shelter to Kadro and Menlha, these tortoises require kind sponsors to fund their daily needs – mainly food, maintenance and veterinary care.

    Kechara Forest Retreat would love to extend this opportunity for more people to show love to the residents at The Aviary, particularly Kadro and Menlha and we seek your kind sponsorships to keep them happy and loved.

    With just $300 a month, Kadro and Menlha’s meals and veterinary care (if necessary) would be taken care of. We seek a total amount of $4,800 from this fund raising to keep the tortoises happy for the next coming 16 months.

    Tsem Rinpoche: Dear Jacinta, Thank you for sharing with Choong my blog post on Nibiru. I am glad you remember that post.

    Jacinta Goh: Choong, the Planet Nibiru was once mentioned by Rinpoche here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/science-mysteries/where-do-we-really-come-from.html. Annunaki, believed to be giants at 10 feet tall and there was once I read a sutra where Lord Buddha telling his disciple about the beings that live far from us and they’re a lot bigger than us. We are considered alien and very small to them. Perhaps in future when we are able to space travel, then this finding could be a fact rather than just mere believing.

    Don’t be a saint and that is fine. Cannot be a saint and that is fine. But at least be human. Being human means to have some civilized respect for others and not just use others for our own selfish purposes. H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche 25th

    spent around 6 hours on one blog post today. Glad I finished it. Afterwards had a bad pain in my neck,shoulder from sitting too long. But luckily had someone give me a strong rub down on the neck,shoulder with their elbows and it solved the problem. I have to stretch more when writing, but when I get into it, it’s hard to stop. LOL. Tsem Rinpoche

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

What Am I Writing Now


 

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

“If one does the recitation of the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga prayer for even one month using one of the visualizations for great or clear or quick wisdom, one will definitely see development of that wisdom. It is proved by experience. There is no doubt that by doing the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga practice one can meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings from life to life. And furthermore, it gives one the opportunity to be born in the pure realm of Lama Tsongkhapa, Tushita, whenever death happens.” - Pabongkha Rinpoche

One of the most BEAUTIFUL, captivating and lovely shrines/temples/altars to Buddha I have ever had the merits to gaze upon. The background is so nice. Busy but not distracting. The lighting is a perfect balance to highlight the attainments of Buddha as it's directly emanating behind his head. Buddha statue itself is proportionate. Just so beautiful.

As I lay still, cold, alone and never to wake up again, what have I done with my life to prepare for this 'eternity'? No one will see me nor will I see them again. They would not want to see me again as I turn blue, brown, bloat, smell and decompose into dust.~Tsem Rinpoche
