Rinpoche in hospitals

(By Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

Over the years, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has been to many hospitals, doing prayers, performing rituals, giving comfort to the sick, and relieving the worries of the families. The ones on the sick bed could be babies… born with defective organs desperately needing operation, young children, adult men and women with all sorts of illnesses, and dying old people.

Rinpoche is clairvoyant to know whether the person on the sick bed is going to survive or not, so the prayers and rituals that Rinpoche performs varies based on that.

For those who still have the karma to live but are facing obstacles, Rinpoche will perform rituals that will clear their obstacles for a smoother operation and treatment, and they always came out healed from the operation theater; while for those whose time in this life is coming to an end, Rinpoche would perform prayers and rituals that would bless their mind to have a swift and good rebirth.

Rinpoche truly emobodies the qualities of a Bodhisattva as in Shantideva’s Dedication Prayer:

“May all who are sick and ill,
Quickly be freed from their ailments.
Whatever diseases there are in the world,
May they never occur again.”

这些年来,尊贵的詹杜固仁波切到过许多医院为病患者作法事、祈愿,和慰问他们和家人。躺在病床上的,包括天生有缺陷的婴儿、孩童、成年人,和时日不多的老年人。仁波切有神通,能预知病人是否能捱过这一关,对于那些生命能够延续的,仁波切将为他们做法事消除业障;而对一些生命已经走到尽头的,仁波切将加持他们,让他们能够有个善终和好的转世。

仁波切的菩萨行,正如寂天菩萨回向文里的

“愿诸病有情,速脱疾病苦!亦愿众生疾,毕竟永不生!”

    Rinpoche is always so caring towards ppl around Him, whether or not He knows them personally or not.

    It is amazing that despite His busy schedules, he still draws time out to visit those who are in need.

    We are truly blessed to have Tsem Tulku Rinpoche here in Malaysia.

    Thought that I would post the following which forms part of the modern Hippocratic Oath which many doctors take:

    “I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”

  3. Graceleong on Sep 19, 2013 at 11:27 am

    Thank you Seng Piow for reminding us the kindness of our Guru. It is so important to remember these good virtues, as very often our minds choose to remember only the perceived negative ones and forget to be grateful for the simple but most meaningful acts of kindness and compassion.Especially during these moments of loss and helplessness.

    Many people have benefitted from Rinpoche’s visits to the hospital or to the funerals of our dear ones, to give teachings and blessings. But many of these “events” were not publicised or known, except for those who work very closely to assist Rinpoche.
    Thank you dear Rinpoche for your immense kindness and your consistent care, despite all the nonsense you receive from your students !

    感恩仁波切无限的爱与关怀

    或许我们常会无助或彷徨,然而当您来到了这里,来到了尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的佛法中心里, 慢慢的您会发现,这些无助与彷徨的感觉会消失了,因为您能感觉到的是,无论发生什么事情或面对什么样的难题,我们的背后,我们的心中,随时随刻,都会有一位无私与大爱的仁波切在保护与教导与关爱着我们

    身为仁波切的弟子,我想我们更应该把上师的这一个身体力行的教诲给延续下去,所谓延续,不应该只是帮忙宣传而已,我们更应该效法我们的上师,无私与随时的准备好自己,去关爱与帮助我们身边的每一个人及一切众生

    感谢仁波切的教导,祈愿仁波切长驻在世常转法轮

  5. May Ong on Sep 19, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    I agreed with Grace Leong on the comment “many of these “events” were not publicised or known, except for those who work very closely to assist Rinpoche.”

    Tsem Rinpoche does not need to show off his clairvoyant “skills” and those who worked closely around him will know from their own experience or have seen him in action. Tsem Rinpoche truly embodies all the qualities of a true Bodhisattva.

  6. tong sun sun on Sep 19, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    顶礼感恩慈悲和谦虚的上师,我们真的是修了几辈子的福,今世才能遇到我们的上师。看着这些照片自己眼眶都红了起来。大家真的要珍惜这一世和上师的缘分。好好的向上师学习。祈愿仁波切常驻在世,常转法轮,度众生无疑。

  7. Shelly tai on Sep 19, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Thank you SP for posting this blog. When I look at all these picture I feel very touch because our guru is always care for everyone whenever we are in a very difficult situation and he is a real bodhisattva. Rinpoche is a good example for all of us to learn how to be compassion and how to benefits others.

  8. Julien Roth on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Haha, i remember when Rinpoche visited me in the hospital. I was so scared because my grandmother had just told me that if Rinpoche came, there would be something wrong and it was an emergency. But no, Rinpoche came because he cares. Rinpoche cares about everyone and i was so happy to see him that day.

  9. Davin on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Rinpoche is so kind. He always care a lot for others. Rinpoche always showed us love and care to benefit others in so many different ways. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche to teach us and to guide us. Thank you Rinpoche.

  10. Wylfred Ng on Sep 19, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    仁波切是非常慈悲的人。 希望仁波切可以更长寿,利益更多的人。

  11. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 19, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for posting this. Seeing my mum in the second picture,a short while before her death, my eyes are instantly flooded with tears at the incomparable kindness of Rinpoche toward my mum,my sister and i.

    Seeing her clutch the newspaper,I am reminded again of how Rinpoche had described this seemingly insignificant act of my mum, as cause for us to love her more.

    Not only did Rinpoche ease the burden of pain for my mum in her last days,he also made sure that my sister and I repaid the “debt” of kindness and love we owed her.

    With folded hands and from the depths of my heart, I thank my precious and most compassionate Guru once again.

  12. Wei Theng on Sep 19, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Thank you bro Seng Piow for sharing this.
    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche with us. Rinpoche’s love and compassion is boundless, regardless or how tired, how sick and how busy he is.
    I remembered on how he visited little Gabriel and gave him Amitayu Initiation.
    Rinpoche will visit the sick and needly even it is very late at night or very early in the morning. I remembered there is one time that Rinpoche went to hospital in the middle of the night to visit a couples who have just lost their babies and to give them comfort. He teaches us that to be ready every moment to help and support others.
    It is such a blessing to have Rinpoche and Kechara! Thank you Rinpoche. May you live long and always turn the wheel of Dharma.

  13. Sean Wang on Sep 19, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Rinpoche is always so caring towards his students and anyone around him. Even if Rinpoche does not know the person on a personal level, he blesses them anyways. He is truly an embodiment of Boddhicitta, compassion.

  14. Jill Yam on Sep 20, 2013 at 12:24 am

    It’s not often that people would purposely make a visit to the hospital to comfort a friend/relative, giving various excuses such as that it’s not hygienic to be in the hospital/a lot of bad energies in the hospital and all.

    For Rinpoche to personally get down and pay visits to those in need is indeed a lesson for all, that we should make time and effort for loved ones unfortunately in hospitals, without any excuses.

  15. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 20, 2013 at 1:05 am

    I’m very touched while looking through the photos, I suddenly feel that life is so fragile, people will just go anywhere anytime. These people including myself were very lucky to have met H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, or I won’t be here writing out my feeling. Thank You for sharing Seng Piow.

  16. chon kong on Sep 20, 2013 at 8:49 am

    看了这组照片,感动万分!认同Sun Sun说的,我们上辈子修来的福,能够成为上师的弟子。慈悲,善巧,细心,无私,大爱,坚毅,守承诺。。。。。。还有很多很多好的特质,他就是我们敬爱的上师。但师父说过,有好的上师教导,如果众生无心向佛,没有把佛法实践在生活上,单靠上师的力量,弘扬佛法到世界每个角落,也只是空谈!听了师父的教诲,现在强逼自己,每天做好自己的本份,从做早课开始,每星期参与法会。唯有自我改变,遵照师父的教导,把佛法实践在生活中,学佛的路才能走的更远。感谢师父的教诲,无私的爱与关怀,以爱照亮众生。

  17. CK Siah on Sep 20, 2013 at 11:25 am

    很感恩仁波切的大慈大悲,救苦救难,普渡众生。仁波切大公无私的为大众付出,不求回报,只求我们修学佛法,累积功德和弘扬佛法。其实仁波切的神通显示也灵,对他更不利,因为仁波切要承担苦难者所面对的业障,仁波切一向无私的保护众生与教诲我们而忽略了自己。各为同修们我们也要保护与关爱着我们的上师,同心协力为克切拉团体和上师付出,弘扬佛法。创造克切拉传奇。

    祈愿每项法会诚心回向给仁波切长驻在世常转法轮。

  18. wansan on Sep 20, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Rinpoche really cares for each and everyone of us, untiringly. We are truly very very fortunate and bless to meet with Rinpoche.

    “May all who are sick and ill,
    Quickly be freed from their ailments.
    Whatever diseases there are in the world,
    May they never occur again.”

  19. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Sep 20, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for all your work to share with us on Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion for those who are suffering in their times of death or suffering during their times of illness. No one would like to endure the pain and uncomfortable feelings/ conditions during the illness and death. Rinpoche understands this more than many of us and untiringly perform many rituals and prayers to those who really need it. Thank you Rinpoche and may we pray everyone who has come to this blog will be your thousands arms to spread the Dharma and benefits many others around the world.

  20. sarahyap on Sep 21, 2013 at 12:09 am

    Rinpoche has always showed deep care towards others, and most of the time Rinpoche would not publicize these actions. If it was not for people like Seng Piow, Joy etc, we would probably not know how much Rinpoche does to help others.

    Knowing how kind and compassionate our Guru is, we should always remind ourselves to never take our Guru for granted and appreciate Him always.

  21. Girlie OOI on Sep 21, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Rinpoche is always caring, not only towards his students who are nearby but also to those who live far away.

    Thank you SP for posting this article; it serves to confirm what we all know of Rinpoche’s care, love, and kindness to one and all.

  22. Uncle Eddie on Sep 21, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    For these fine attitudes of compassion and loving-kindness, which Rinpoche has, are deeply felt by the Mind that cannot bear the sufferings of others, and long for them to be freed from it! But, as said, this leads to attaining great strength of character, courage and enthusiasm, which proves one’s own practice of having cultivated an awakening Buddha’s mind. It is also emphasized that cultivating this type of mind must be pure in the sense of having no concern for “oneself” and an unmarred concern for others. As quoted: “To develope this mind-state of compassion…..is to learn to live, as Buddha put it, with sympathy for all living beings, without exception.” Om mani padmi hum.

  23. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Sep 22, 2013 at 11:49 am

    We are blessed enough to have a true Guru-Tsem Tulku Rinpoche with full compassion in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Kechara House. Rinpoche always put other in priority regardless their races, age, status…etc . Rinpoche always show care and love to those in need.where can find such great Guru who is close to us ??? We are really blessed.

  24. henry ooi on Sep 23, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Thanks, Seng Piow, for these well taken pics and true accounts of some of the dharma work Rinpoche did, still doing and will do to help and alleviate the physical, emotional and spiritual suffering of all beings. Not to mention, the highest deed of all, teaching dharma.

  25. Lucas Roth on Sep 23, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    Rinpoche is so caring and thoughtful, hehe even my brother is there. when someone is in need he is there. there to bless you and be there for you. thank you Rinpoche for being there for all of us.

  26. Low Khjb on Sep 23, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.We could not deny that our Guru is very generous and compassionate.He would put his students welfare the up most priority above himself all the time.
    Our guru will always give assistance ,even for those he hardly know,if they had the merit to meet up with him.
    We are so fortunate to be give the merit to learn and given a chance to practice Dharma from a real living Bodhisattva ,during our life time.
    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind guidance.May we be granted the wisdom to follow the true path of the Dharma and gain the most precious gift of mind transformation.

  27. Felix Kong on Sep 24, 2013 at 10:02 am

    Honestly , if someone calling you for help during midnight, will you help them or just continue enjoy your sweet dream? Rinpoche really compassion and caring to all sentient beings , Rinpoche always giving help and benefit others no matter in anytime or anywhere. Thank you Rinpoche.

  28. Jessica Yap on Sep 25, 2013 at 1:08 am

    Rinpoche need not publicize the good deeds and the love and care that He shows. IN due time, those lives who were touched by RInpoche’s kindness would be known far and wide.

    How many people we know who are always consistent and shows love and truly cares for us tirelessly 24/7? Some might answer that our parents’ love would suffice but we tend to forget that our parents’ love would end this lifetime together with us.
    Our kind Guru’s love would care for us in our future lives if we have taken refuge and keep our samaya clean.

    When one is on the sick bed, most of them would be depressed, too weak or just not motivated to keep fighting for their lives. With RInpoche around, the love and kindness that RInpoche brings with HIm to the sick and their families is just priceless! RInpoche’s love transcends time and place as Rinpoche helps plan seed and prepare us to meet the Dharma in future lives and to be protected by the 3 Jewels always.

    Rinpoche is a true Bodhisattva! If it isn’t because of RInpoche’s kindness to stay in Malaysia and build Kechara, all of us would still be drowning in the sea of ignorance..

    If what RInpoche is doing isn’t right, Kechara wouldn’t be where we are today.. =)

    Thank you for sharing, Seng Piow. I always enjoy stories from Rinpoche’s POs as the stories are 100% authentic and not hearsay or rumors.

    Thank you, RInpoche.

  29. Albert Ratchaga on Sep 26, 2013 at 1:58 am

    As usual, Rinpoche will never forget about doing prayer for others, He always pray for other’s suffering comes to him in the form of sickness, well, guess what? He got it, Rinpoche has not been feeling well since years ago, and why is he still continue doing all these.. reason being is because he only wanted to benefit the sentient beings, he want to use his limited life to serve and benefit as many people as possible.. nothing else he wishes for, thats why rinpoche always goes to hospital and funerals to do prayer and to bless the sick or deceased..

  30. Cliff on Sep 27, 2013 at 2:46 am

    I do not see many people do this, more likely none at all. Rinpoche would tirelessly make his way to the hospital whether feeling in good health or not, no matter what time it is, Rinpoche would know when it is the right time to go visit and make the necessary visits. Rinpoche is truly one of the most compassionate person in the world. Thank you Rinpoche for always inspiring us to be better. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  31. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 28, 2013 at 10:58 am

    There are so many variations of people who have problems with their health due to variations of karma, some do get healed, some live, some get better but no matter what the next stage is, once Rinpoche goes to bless them they next step will be a better one :)

  32. David Lai on Nov 26, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    These pictures are an amazing testament to Rinpoche’s compassion. It kinda reminds me of the Buddha always taking it upon himself to take care of the sick. The Buddha made it a commitment for his followers to always care for the sick. He has made it a commitment because he wanted to made a point to put into practice compassion. Thus Rinpoche and the Buddha have set a precedence for his future followers to care for those who are sick and dying. There’s much more than the pictures and I personally have seen Rinpoche have made arrangements for people who are sick to be cared throughout Kechara organization.

  33. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 23, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing with us. Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us about compassion by walking the talk.

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.

The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    Look at this 2 minute video, while Hong Kong is having massive protests,right over the skyline of a city a UFO is spotted observing.. Incredible footage. UFO's are historically said to always gather where there is massive conflicts or congregations of people for hundreds of years.

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

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

The fact of the matter is this – we all should be treated equally and there should never be rules and regulations against us as people or citizens based on our religious beliefs. Whether our religious beliefs are accepted or considered accurate interpretations, we are still people underneath. We all need food, love, compassion and deserve inalienable birth rights such as freedom of choice. No leader, whether secular or religious, should ever be allowed to take that away from us. ~ I pray to what I want to http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/i-pray-to-what-i-want-to.html Join us as we discuss this interesting topic on blog chat http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/chat Date: USA Friday 19th Dec @7pmPST & M’SIA Saturday 20th Dec @11amGMT+8 (Joy)
