(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 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.

  2. 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.

    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 :)

    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!

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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。

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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 !!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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。

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  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. 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.

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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?

  26. 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…

  27. 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.

  28. 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 !

  29. Aunty lilian on Jul 18, 2012 at 1:36 am

    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。

  33. 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 :)

  34. 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.

  35. 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。

  36. 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. :)

  37. 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

  38. 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.

  39. VInnie Tan on Sep 12, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    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.

    For vincent tan – Yonten Shigyurma – The Foundation of All Realisations Well-realising that the root of the path,
    the foundation for every realisation,
    is to properly rely on my kind Guru,
    bless me to do so with great effort and devotion. Knowing that this life of freedom, found but once,
    is difficult to gain and greatly meaningful
    bless me to develop the continual wish
    all day and night to take its essence. Mindful of death, this life disintegrates
    as swiftly as a bubble in turbulent water
    and after death my good and bad
    karma follows me like my shadow. Having gained firm certainty of this,
    bless me to be ever conscientious
    to abandon even the slightest harm
    and practice every possible virtue. Enjoying deceptive samsaric pleasure
    brings no contentment and is the door to all suffering.
    aware of its drawbacks, bless me to develop
    a strong wish for the bliss of liberation. With mindfulness, introspection, and great care
    induced by that pure aspiration
    bless me to make my essential practice
    the Pratimoksha, root of Buddha’s teachings. Just as I’ve fallen in this sea of suffering
    so have all beings, my kind mothers;
    seeing this, bless me to train in Bodhicitta,
    taking up the burden of liberating them. And yet, just wishing this, without practicing
    the three ethics, Enlightenment cannot be attained.
    knowing this well, please bless me to intensively
    strive to train in the Bodhisattva vows. Properly analysing the correct object
    and pacifying distraction to mistaken objects
    bless me to swiftly realise the path
    which unifies quiescence and special insight. When I’m a pure vessel, trained in common paths,
    bless me to enter with perfect ease
    the sacred gateway of fortunate ones,
    the supreme of vehicles, Vajrayana. Then, foundation for the two attainments
    is keeping the pure vows and commitments.
    having found unfeigned conviction in this
    bless me to guard them with my life. Having precisely understood the essentials
    of the two stages, heart of the tantras,
    bless me to strive without break in four sessions
    to practice Yoga as taught by holy Masters. May the spiritual guides who reveal this excellent path
    and the friends who practice it all live long.
    Please grant blessings that outer and inner
    hindrances all be fully pacified. In all lives may I never be parted
    from perfect Masters and enjoy the glory of Dharma.
    Perfecting realisations of the paths and stages,
    may I swiftly gain the state of Vajradhara. this is the Prayer of the Great Saint Great Buddha Lama Tsongkhapa!

    (Wednesday, Apr 16. 2014 01:49 AM)
    I am always with you,
    even when you are not able to feel me in your heart.
    I love you always,
    I surround you with my protecting love,
    even when you occasionally forget me.
    I listen to your problems,
    if you are sincere and receptive, I give you solutions.
    I hear your prayers and answer those which are in the best interest
    of everyone in your life including, but not limited to, you. I am the light and the thoughts in your mind,
    I am the sight in your eyes,
    I am the life in your body,
    I am the feelings you feel in your heart.
    I am always at work in your life for your greater good,
    although you may not always believe this;
    hopefully, your faith in me will grow constant.
    you must realize:
    “my will is whatever is happening in the present moment”.
    within this moment you must think and act
    with integrity, humility and courage,
    you must trust in me,
    and surrender your will to mine through acceptance.
    if you continue to demonstrate acceptance,
    integrity, humility, courage and trust,
    you will discover the secret of opening your heart to my love.
    the greater your faith in me
    the more I am able fill your heart with my love. it is I, who grants you the serenity to accept
    the things you cannot change,
    the courage to change the things you can
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    eventually you will realize the samplings of love
    I bestow on you through others
    are purposefully designed to draw you closer to me.
    it is only I, who loves you unconditionally,
    I am an ever-flowing fountain of love, peace and joy,
    I will never disappoint you; I will always be with you.
    I mete out to you the exact amount of pain you cause others,
    because I want you to be compassionate.
    I want you to be able to give love and equally as important,
    I want you to be able to receive love.
    how else will you learn to love me?
    how will you learn to accept my love?
    the moment you realize the error of your ways,
    the moment you sincerely regret the pain you cause others,
    I forgive you; I nourish you with my tender mercies.
    remember, I never stop loving you for you are my precious child.

    Hi dear Rinpoche and dear Kecharians !
    I’d like to attract your attention to one serious world problem in the field of health care. It’s about a petition which potentially could save thousands or may be millions of human lives in the future. It will take you no more than 5 minutes to read, sign and share it on your wall in Facebook and Twitter
    http://www.alltrials.net/
    you could also watch a TED video about this serious problem which is relevant to all people:
    http://www.ted.com/talks/ben_goldacre_what_doctors_don_t_know_about_the_drugs_they_prescribe
    P.S.Abstract: Thousands of clinical trials have not reported their results; some have not even been registered. Information on what was done and what was found in these trials could be lost forever to doctors and researchers, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated. All trials past and present should be registered, and the full methods and the results reported. We call on governments, regulators and research bodies to implement measures to achieve this.
    Thank you !

    Mother Theresa-People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

    MOTHER THERESA ONCE SAID- A clean heart is a free heart. A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Purity, chastity, and virginity created a special beauty in Mary that attracted God’s attention. He showed his great love for the world by giving Jesus to her. There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family.
    Find them.
    Love them. Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart. Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness. Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well. The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance.
    It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy. I pray that you will understand the words of Jesus, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Ask yourself “How has he loved me? Do I really love others in the same way?” Unless this love is among us, we can kill ourselves with work and it will only be work, not love. Work without love is slavery. Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing. A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is p

    Quotes of Mother Teresa
    “Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray.” “I once picked up a woman from a garbage dump and she was burning with fever; she was in her last days and her only lament was: ‘My son did this to me.’ I begged her: You must forgive your son. In a moment of madness, when he was not himself, he did a thing he regrets. Be a mother to him, forgive him. It took me a long time to make her say: ‘I forgive my son.’ Just before she died in my arms, she was able to say that with a real forgiveness. She was not concerned that she was dying. The breaking of the heart was that her son did not want her. This is something you and I can understand.” “When once a chairman of a multinational company came to see me, to offer me a property in Bombay, he first asked: ‘Mother, how do you manage your budget?” I asked him who had sent him here. He replied: ‘I felt an urge inside me.’ I said: other people like you come to see me and say the same. It was clear God sent you, Mr. A, as He sends Mr. X, Mrs. Y, Miss Z, and they provide the material means we need for our work. The grace of God is what moved you. You are my budget. God sees to our needs, as Jesus promised. I accepted the property he gave and named it Asha Dan (Gift of Hope). “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” “Like Jesus we belong to the world living not for ourselves but for others. The joy of the Lord is our strength.” “There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I’ve always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic. We believe our work should be our example to people. We have among us 475 souls – 30 families are Catholics and the rest are all Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs—all different religions. But they all come to our prayers.” “There are so many religions and each one has its different ways of following God. I follow Christ:
    Jesus is my God,
    Jesus is my Spouse,
    Jesus is my Life,
    Jesus is my only Love,
    Jesus is my All in All;
    Jesus is my Everything.” Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those people throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy.
    I heard the call to give up all and follow Christ into the slums to serve Him among the poorest of the poor. It was an order.
    I was to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them. When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her.
    It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed. You and I, we are the Church, no? We have to share with our people. Suffering today is because people are hoarding, not giving, not sharing.
    Jesus made it very clear. Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me.
    Give a glass of water, you give it to me. Receive a little
    child, you receive me. Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world. If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.

    Mother Teresa’s Nazareth Prayer for the Family Heavenly Father,
    you have given us the model of life
    in the Holy Family of Nazareth.
    Help us, O Loving Father,
    to make our family another Nazareth
    where love, peace and joy reign.
    May it be deeply contemplative,
    intensely eucharistic,
    revived with joy. Help us to stay together in joy
    and sorrow in family prayer.
    Teach us to see Jesus in the members of our families,
    especially in their distressing disguise.
    May the eucharistic heart of Jesus
    make our hearts humble like his
    and help us to carry out our family duties
    in a holy way.
    May we love one another
    as God loves each one of us,
    more and more each day,
    and forgive each other’s faults
    as you forgive our sins.
    Help us, O Loving Father,
    to take whatever you give
    and give whatever you take with a big smile. Immaculate Heart of Mary,
    cause of our joy, pray for us. St. Joseph, pray for us. Holy Guardian Angels,
    be always with us,
    guide and protect us. Amen. Prayer of Mother Teresa Dear Jesus, help us to spread your fragrance
    everywhere we go.
    Flood our souls with your spirit and life.
    Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly
    that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.
    Shine through us and be so in us
    that every soul we come in contact with
    may feel your presence in our soul.
    Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus.
    Stay with us and then we shall begin to shine as you shine,
    so to shine as to be light to others.
    The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.
    None of it will be ours.
    It will be you shining on others through us.
    Let us thus praise you in the way you love best
    by shining on those around us.
    Let us preach you without preaching,
    not by words, but by our example;
    by the catching force -
    the sympathetic influence of what we do,
    the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear to you. Amen. Quotes by Mother Teresa “There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family. Find them. Love them.” “Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.” “Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.”

    If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love,
    I have become sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and
    all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains,
    but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and
    if I deliver my body that I may boast
    but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering,
    love is kind,
    it is not jealous,
    love does not boast,
    it is not inflated. It is not discourteous,
    it is not selfish,
    it is not irritable,
    it does not enumerate the evil. It does not rejoice over the wrong,
    but rejoices in the truth It covers all things, it has faith for all things,
    it hopes in all things, it endures in all things. Love never falls in ruins;
    but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or
    tongues, they will cease; or
    knowledge, it will be superseded. For we know in part and we prophecy in part. But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded. When I was an infant,
    I spoke as an infant, I reckoned as an infant;
    when I became [an adult],
    I abolished the things of the infant. For now we see through a mirror in an enigma, but then face to face.
    Now I know in part, but then I shall know
    as also I was fully known. But now remains faith, hope, love, these three;
    but the greatest of these is love. 1 corinthians 13:1-13

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.

This mechanism was recovered from the Antikythera shipwreck in 1901. Its complexity and purpose was not understood for another hundred years. Dated to around 200 BC, it is identified to be an analog computer used to calculate the astronomical position of the stars and planets. Its juxtaposition among other ancient artifacts is akin to finding a jet airplane inside King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The device, whose inner workings are far more complex than a Swiss watch, is capable of accurately measuring the movement of the sun, the moon (and all its phases), eclipse cycles and the position of the planets. Who could have built this?~https://www.facebook.com/cosmic.intelligenceagency

Never be angry at your guru, Hold a grudge against your guru. Never seek revenge against your guru. Never talk badly about your guru to cover your mistakes. Don't abandon your guru or ignore  your guru because he loved you for you as no one else  did and dared to love your potential too. Never hold your anger for long against your guru. Your guru was only doing his 'job' by teaching you, showing you better, explaining the dharma to you and was very brave to do so for you as no one else would dare do so. No one would dare take that job. No one else dared to love you and give you more. ~Tsem Rinpoche

And Kalmyk Republic is the only European republic that is Buddhist and they are Mongols in ancestry. They are proud people. I found a video that is very good. It showcases all the dances of the various Russian Republics. Very beautiful and rich Russian heritage. At 27:59 of the video you will see the Kalymk performers doing the Mongol-Kalmyk dance. I use to dance in a Kalymk dance troupe as a kid, but I couldn't dance like this! I was amazed how beautiful it was done and talented the Kalmyk dancer are as well as the other republics. I want to share with you. Please see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhnbLoFbpsU -Thank you- Tsem Rinpoche

The Medicine Buddha is the composition of the buddhas. This means that when we practice the seven-limb prayer and make offerings with the seven limbs, we receive the same merit as we would if we had made offerings to all the Buddhas. Similarly, when we recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, we collect unbelievable merit just as when we offer the seven-limb practice to Medicine Buddha. Be the cause for many to come to receive the healing of the Medicine Buddha and seal tremendous merits for yourself and your family in this life and the other lives to come.~Martin Get involved: http://www.medicinebuddhahill.com

Nothing is more precious than having a guru that loves you and teaches you. It is through his divine teachings you find yourself and become someone who brings light, life, joy and bliss to all those you meet. You make your life beautiful due to the beauty your guru shows you have in you. ~Tsem Rinpoche

When we trust our guru, things don't become better or easier, but our goal becomes clear and we head towards a direction that leads to something supreme for ourselves. Nothing from my guru to me has ever been easy or simple or without much obstacles, but I will not quit. ~Tsem Rinpoche

People who truly love animals have the special mind to love without agenda and without rewards. Su Ming is one of those rare souls that love, care and help you without any personal agenda. She is warm, intelligent, sharp and a GREAT FRIEND TO HAVE. She is what defines friendship. You will find it hard to find another like her. People are blessed to have her in their lives and I mean every word of this. Treasure her friendship alway and never lose it because hard to find again. Tsem Rinpoche

Was casually walking around Venice Beach today and suddenly a Marvin called out "Rinpoche!" I never met this gentle person, but he has been following me on my youtubes and blog and recognized me. It was nice to meet up with him and say hello. And say hello to his dog Scooby too! It touched me that he said my teachings online and blog helped him and changed his life. Thank you Marvin!

We walked by a house in Los Angeles that was fantastic! They made a special outdoor place for Lord Buddha to be placed. Hundreds of people walk by and can see this Buddha and be blessed. I really like this alot. I always like to do this too! Tsem Rinpoche

Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche

    Very touching video...Buddha said it was very important to visit the four holy places associated with Him before our deaths. Remembering this, I had instructed Paul to take this senior group to Bodhgaya and make sure they are able to plant imprints. When this life of 'fun', money, parties and socials are over, we cannot leave empty handed. Tsem Rinpoche

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute. He gets nice food and sunshine daily and also we play monks chanting for him to be blessed. We love you Aki. Tsem Rinpoche

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear all, This is Paris interviewing my sister Lidshma. She mentions when I was very young the monks would have me sit with them to do the Buddhist services which was highly irregular in New Jersey. They didn't have lay people even children sit with them to do the services. So she mentions this was very unusual in a good way. My sister Lidshma here mentions my mother (Dana) would always catch me in the night in my room in the dark sitting on my bed meditating and doing mantras. I did that always and had to avoid being caught by my mother. I did it nightly. So I did it secretly and without her catching me. If she did catch me, then there would be big drama and problems depending on the mood my mom was in. My practicing dharma/meditating/praying/mantras was not allowed at all by my parents. They were fiercely against it always. My sister remembers this here. My sister lives in Texas, USA. And our bio group had gone to USA to interview my family for my bio book. This is a snippet.
