(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.

    Eight Verses of Training The Mind (By Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa 1054 – 1123) With the determination to accomplish
    The highest welfare for all sentient beings
    Who surpass even a wish-granting jewel
    I will learn to hold them supremely dear. Whenever I associate with others I will learn
    To think of myself as the lowest among all
    And respectfully hold others to be supreme
    From the very depths of my heart In all actions I will learn to search into my mind
    And as soon as an afflictive emotion arises
    Endangering myself and others
    I will firmly face and avert it. I will learn to cherish all beings of bad nature
    And those pressed by strong sins and sufferings
    As if I had found a precious
    Treasure very difficult to find When others out of jealousy treat me badly
    With abuse, slander, and so on,
    May I suffer the defeat
    And offer the victory to them When one whom I have benefited with great hope
    Unreasonably hurts me very badly,
    I will learn to view that person
    As an excellent spiritual guide. In short, I will learn to offer to everyone without exception
    All help and happiness directly and indirectly
    And respectfully take upon myself
    All harm and suffering of my mothers. I will learn to keep all these practices
    Undefiled by the stains of the eight worldly conceptions
    And by the understanding of all phenomena as like illusions
    Be released from the bondage of attachment.

    Let the rain come and wash away
    the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds
    held and nurtured over generations.
    Let the rain wash away the memory
    of the hurt, the neglect.
    Then let the sun come out and
    fill the sky with rainbows.
    Let the warmth of the sun heal us
    wherever we are broken.
    Let it burn away the fog so that
    we can see each other clearly.
    So that we can see beyond labels,
    beyond accents, gender or skin color.
    Let the warmth and brightness
    of the sun melt our selfishness.
    So that we can share the joys and
    feel the sorrows of our neighbors.
    And let the light of the sun
    be so strong that we will see all
    people as our neighbors.
    Let the earth, nourished by rain,
    bring forth flowers
    to surround us with beauty.
    And let the mountains teach our hearts
    to reach upward to heaven. Amen. a prayer for the world – rabbi harold kushner

    Great God, who has told us
    “Vengeance is mine,”
    save us from ourselves,
    save us from the vengeance in our hearts
    and the acid in our souls. Save us from our desire to hurt as we have been hurt,
    to punish as we have been punished,
    to terrorize as we have been terrorized. Give us the strength it takes
    to listen rather than to judge,
    to trust rather than to fear,
    to try again and again
    to make peace even when peace eludes us. We ask, O God, for the grace
    to be our best selves.
    We ask for the vision
    to be builders of the human community
    rather than its destroyers.
    We ask for the humility as a people
    to understand the fears and hopes of other peoples. We ask for the love it takes
    to bequeath to the children of the world to come
    more than the failures of our own making.
    We ask for the heart it takes
    to care for all the peoples
    of Afghanistan and Iraq, of Palestine and Israel
    as well as for ourselves. Give us the depth of soul, O God,
    to constrain our might,
    to resist the temptations of power
    to refuse to attack the attackable,
    to understand
    that vengeance begets violence,
    and to bring peace–not war–wherever we go. For You, O God, have been merciful to us.
    For You, O God, have been patient with us.
    For You, O God, have been gracious to us. And so may we be merciful
    and patient
    and gracious
    and trusting
    with these others whom you also love. This we ask through Jesus,
    the one without vengeance in his heart.
    This we ask forever and ever. Amen prayer for world peace – sister joan chittister – benedictine sisters of erie

    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.”

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

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.

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

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!

    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.

~Dharma Work or Just Work~ Attitude plays a BIG PART in whether your work is fulfilling or not. Work does not need to be fun to be fulfilling. It just needs to benefit others. If benefitting others become boring, then you will find everything in life boring eventually. Make a mental shift….~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/dharma-work-or-just-work.html From: June Tang (Khjb)
