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, so I decided to have these stories told in comics for wide audience, 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.

    Rejoice for Jie and Chef Au family, Children’s Baptismal is to bless the minds of the young and to give protection. They perform prayers and rituals specially composed by H.E Tsem Rinpoche to invoke the energy of the second Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa to prevent negative interferences and increase good qualities.

    What are the benefits of Children’s Baptismal?
    The benefits and positive implications of this Baptismal for your children and you are numerous, and extend beyond this lifetime. Some of which are:
    *Your child becomes a Buddhist
    *Your child will receive the blessings and be protected by the Three Jewels: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha
    *It plants Dharmic seeds and positive imprints in your child’s mind to become good people in the future

    After Jie bless by Rinpoche he started to increase his good qualities so that he can able to reduce his negative Karma. Somemore his father Chef Au committed to be a vegetarian chef so the blessing come evn faster to help his son.

    I just love these comics version of the stories… I hope you think about making a book out of it! Thank to the person who is doing the comings; they are great!

    • Bengkooi on Jul 12, 2012 at 4:56 am

      Hi aurore, it’s been some time since we last chatted! To answer your question, yes we are considering how to turn this series of stories into a book. We hope to let others know some of the miraculous stories surrounding Rinpoche’s work, and the power of the Dharma and Buddha’s blessings.

      Did you know – the children’s baptismal is a new ceremony and ritual that Rinpoche himself composed. The majority of the prayers are extracted from the Gelugpa lineage, but the actual baptism prayer and ritual was composed during a bright sunny day at Rinpoche’s residence. Immediately after Rinpoche finished composing the baptism prayer, a light rain fell for about a minute before the skies clear again. What an auspicious sign – miracles surround Rinpoche and other attained beings like Rinpoche always, if we know where to look!

      I am really happy that children now have an opportunity to enter the protective circle of Buddha’s mandala through the baptism ceremony, and I hope many others will receive a similar opportunity in future. Kechara conducts these ceremonies regularly and the response from the public has been very good so far.

    I have a special child, and he is blessed by Rinpoche last year too, during Wesak Day. He does have a slight communication problem, not able to articulate smoothly, but since we brought him to Kechara and had blessing of three jewel and Rinpoche, he is much receptive to communicating with others too. He also knows how to chants mitgsema, setrap mantra, om ah ra pa sa nadhi. He loves Rinpche very much, and is always telling friends and family about Rinpoche. He shows the gift that he receive from Rinpoche to friends when they visit us at home. He is hyper active too, but I have also brought him to Puja/prayers and he is able to sit for 1.5 hours for the prayers. His teacher has also recently confront me and ask if he is not well, as he is been quiet and sitting down and learning, I was very happy to know this. Thank you Rinpoche for the blessings and guidance.

  4. DR on Jul 12, 2012 at 11:50 am

    This story of Jie reminds me of another young boy whom Rinpoche helped. It was in 1997 and Rinpoche was with afew of his students going to Wu Tai San (Five Peaked Mountains of Manjushri), China. A village couple heard about Rinpoche’s visit and made their way there with their son who had speech impairment since birth. They are very poor villagers so they had to walk all the way up to the mountain with the hope for their son to be blessed by Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche blessed the young boy and taught him Manjushri’s mantra OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI. The miracle happened; the first words the boy spoke was OM AH. The parents were so grateful they kneeled down and could not stop crying.

    This is just one of the many many cases of how Rinpoche made a difference to one’s life.

  5. MayOng on Jul 12, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Blessings from holy monks or nuns who hold their vows well will be able to bless anyone who have the merits to receive them. Receiving holy blessings from the sangha can either open up the minds of the person or to plant imprints to open up in the future.

    Here at Kechara, we encourage parents to bring their children to attend dharma classes for both parents and kids so they may plant positive knowledge in their minds to create positive seeds for their future. Chef Au’s family certainly benefited from Tsem Rinpoche’s holy blessings.

  6. Julia Tan on Jul 12, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Many miracles happened in Kechara. If everyone share their stories here, I believe KMP can come out with a series of books. Basically most of the student has received Rinpoche’s help one way or another. Rinpoche saved my brother’s life who went into coma 4 years ago. Rinpoche is a very high lama who practice and hold His vows purely hence Rinpoche’s blessings is very powerful. It’s very happy to know that Chef Au’s Son Jie had improved a lot and started to talk after the blessings. May Miracles continue to happen around us through Rinpoche’s blessings.

  7. Datuk May on Jul 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    I was at the Baby Baptismal when it was first performed by Rinpoche at Kechara. 7 of my grandchildren were blessed by Rinpoche on that day. It is not my imagination since then, my grandchildren behave better and seem more focused out to their environment and people around them.

    It is very fortunate that these children have exposure to Dharma at such a young age.

    As to the comic version of the miracle on Jie, it would be wonderful that such miracles are compiled into a book available to many more people.

  8. Mei Fong on Jul 12, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    This is more than just a miracle. No words can be used to express the happiness that Jie’s family experienced when he can finally speak. I was at the baby baptismal ceremony on the Wesak 2011 and was so happy to see so many children getting blessed by a high lama at such a young age and furthermore being protected by the Three Jewels.

  9. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 12, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Very glad to read this story. It must have been tough on the parents to have to take care of Jie in the past nine years.

    But things are improving. With the blessings of Rinpoche, Jie will get better.

    With Chef Au preparing such nice vegetarian foods, positive karma is generated every day.

    I wish Family Au the best!

  10. lucy yap on Jul 12, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    There are many benefits from blessings,the act of invoking divine protection or aid.Jie received a gift of speech from Rinpoche whose holy blessings enriches this boy’s life tremendously.
    A happy and beautiful family who is grateful to Rinpoche for this miracle.

  11. nicholas on Jul 13, 2012 at 1:59 am

    It was the first ever Children Baptismal performed by Rinpoche at Kechara. The prayers text was personally composed by Rinpoche and this is to give the children great opportunity to get blessing when they are still young.

    Definitely a great blessing for Jie and everyone can see and witness the improvement of him after the blessing ceremony. It’s important for our children to gain the blessing especially from young so they are able to clear their obstacles and create cause to be able to learn the dharma and have the wisdom to understand and practice it for benefiting others.

    This is one of the best things that as parents can gift to their children for their future not just this life but planting a positive seeds for their future lives too.

  12. Lim Han Nee on Jul 13, 2012 at 8:01 am

    An amazing story of yet another miracle! The baby blessing by Rinpoche not only gives the Protection of the Three Jewels to all the children,it also blesses them with seeds of wisdom. Furthermore come these miracles.

    These marvelous stories show ,without a doubt, the great compassion of Rinpoche manifesting in miracles. This story of KO’s Chef Au’s son and the story told by Datuk Ruby about the son of poor villagers near Wu Tai Shan(who had climbed up the mountain to meet Rinpoche, trusting that he would heal their son also of speech difficulty)show both the Rinpoche’s great care and compassion as well as his humility. If not for Seng Piow telling these stories, very few people would have known about these miracles. Definitely, these stories must be compiled into a book and published.

  13. Han on Jul 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    真人真事的漫画版可是画得栩栩如生,谢谢!
    勇杰参与由尊贵的詹杜固仁波切主持的儿童洗礼时由于有高僧的加持庇佑,加上心咒的力量,勇杰奇迹的开口说话,从这个例子体会,身为家长能给孩子的最佳礼物就是佛法!无论是一句殊胜的心咒或是上师的加持庇佑都可能为孩子种下佛法的印记,让他受用一生,甚至下一世。。。。。

  14. June KH-Jb on Jul 13, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Guru blessings can do everything!! We are so fortunate that we have met Rinpoche, I was at the Baby Baptismal when it was first performed by Rinpoche at Kechara last year.My 2 kids were blessed by Rinpoche on that day,They are doing their daily sadhana now and got improvement. This is one of the best things that as parents can gift to children are let them learn dharma!!
    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing another amazing story with us.

  15. Chee is on Jul 14, 2012 at 12:57 am

    尊贵的仁波切,我非常感激上師給予我的孩子们的加持,到如今我还是感觉到很温暖和幸福能够得到上師的祝福。
    感到很辛运能有这样殊勝的机缘,很感谢上師,願上師身体安康,长久住世,常轉法輪,願生生世世都能与詹仁波切相遇。

  16. Chee ks on Jul 14, 2012 at 1:08 am

    感谢胜彪的漫画故事让更多人了解在生活中遇到劫难,上師扮演了很重要的庇护,如果没有遇见上師,我觉得很多人都很茫然,不知所措。谢谢你,勝彪!

  17. patsy on Jul 14, 2012 at 9:36 am

    This is yet another amazing story of how Rinpoche’s compassion helped and benefitted another family.

    Reciting OM AH RA PA SA NA DHI is believed to enhance wisdom and improve one’s skill in debate, memory, writing and other literary abilities.

    I rejoice that Jie was able to receive this gift of speech directly from Rinpoche and that his speech is improving. It must be a great relief for Jie’s parents as even doctors couldn’t find the cause of his slow speech.

    May the Au’s family always be protected by the Three Jewels. Thank you, Seng Piow, for sharing.

  18. Milly on Jul 14, 2012 at 11:57 am

    I rejoice for Jie and Chef Au and his wife. Reciting Lord Manjushri’s holy mantra as his first words after the blessing is so wonderful. Time and time again, those with faith in Rinpoche and the Three Jewels have all been helped. Our Guru’s blessing is so precious.

  19. Low ksjc on Jul 14, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for another sharing of True Stories.
    Our dear Rinpoche was very kind to initiate the Baby Blessing on Wesak day 2011.It was a long awaited event for lots of his students,they knew how precious the initiation was and it would not be easy to come by the second time.The fortunate Parents and Visitors was also Blessed by Rinpoche on that day.I would not forget that day as I was one of the fortunate one.My mother was very happy as it was the first time that she got blessed by Rinpoche up close even tough she was not seated at the main prayer hall.Rinpoche was so kind to make sure everyone present was Blessed!
    In deed on that day all the fortunate children was empowered with the mantra of Manjushri by our dear Rinpoche .May all those present that day be blessed with wisdom , compassion and protection by the Three Jewels.

  20. Girlie Ooi on Jul 14, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    I met Chef Au, GG and the children at Kechara Oasis. Jie would always come along with GG and the elder brother when they came for their meals or to wait for Chef. Jie would always respond to me with hand gestures and he was such a shy boy. I am happy that with Rinpoche’s blessings, he is now able to talk.

  21. Choi Sheem on Jul 15, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    This is another true story of Rinpoche’s amazing blessing. So happy to know Jie is now able to speak and communicate with others. Chef Au is collecting a lot of merits by cooking lots of non meat dishes so that people have many choices of food that does not involve meat. The children blessing was a good way to introduce young children to our Guru and three jewels.The OM AH RA PATSA NA DHI mantra is a good mantra to plant the seeds of Manjushri into the mind of children.

  22. Frederick Law on Jul 15, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    very fortunate of Chef Au and his family to meet Rinpoche and receive blessing from Rinpoche and 3 Jewels. Miracles do happen believe it or not, but if one does not have faith, the blessing will not work perfectly, and i believe also it depends on the karma of the person. Blessing from the Guru together with the Mantra of the Buddha, it works hand in hand. Thank you for this wonderful story in comic version, it really fun to read. :)

  23. Sharon Saw on Jul 15, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Thank you for sharing these stories, Seng Piow. Rinpoche is so humble that he would never tell people what he does to benefit others. It’s only right for us students to share the true facts about Rinpoche’s care and compassion so that other people can rejoice and be inspired. After following Rinpoche for the past 7 years, I have seen countless miracles with my own eyes. I know for sure that Rinpoche is not an ordinary being and how fortunate we are to have him as our spiritual advisor.

  24. Grace(KSJC) on Jul 16, 2012 at 12:42 am

    So glad that Chef Au and family can received true blessing from Rinpoche.As a mother, i can understand GG ‘s feeling that own children have “special” behavior yet can’t find the reason and solution through any medical help.i strongly belive miracle can happen if we have do more Dharma work and collect merits from good virtue like Chef Au promoting vegetarian which they create the cause & collect merits to help thier son.

  25. Albert Ratchaga on Jul 16, 2012 at 4:23 am

    The best gift we can give to a child is Dharma, because the kids are still small, their minds just like a piece of white paper, how we want the kids to be, it depends on how we write on this piece of paper. Dharma is the best knowledge to instill into this white paper, they will definitely turn out to be a good person when they grow up.

    Om Ah Ra Ba Tza Na Dhi is the mantra of Manjushri, for baby to develop a relationship with Manjushri Buddha is very useful and beneficial to them, Manjushri increases our wisdom, our learning ability, speaking power, etc.

    Manjushri is a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the lotus held in his left hand is a Prajnaparamita sutra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom. Manjushri is often depicted as riding on a blue lion, or sitting on the skin of a lion. This represents the use of wisdom to tame the mind, which is compared to riding or subduing a ferocious lion.

  26. HelenaC on Jul 16, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    This is totally wonderful and unbelievable. Jie have so much improvement after the baby baptismal ceremony. Is really glad to know that is is now speak up :) Thank you Rinpoche for the blessing.

  27. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on Jul 17, 2012 at 12:13 am

    This is another amazing story from Rinpoche , H.E Tulku Rinpoche to have first baby baptismal ceremony in Kechara , thru this ceremony , Jie had get improvement on speech after direct blessing from Rinpoche ! Jie ! don’t give up , continue the mantra , it will benefit to you !

  28. Alex C.J.Tan on Jul 17, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    Jie and his elder brother were in our MKC class during the early days. It is so wonderful to know that Jie is living a normal life now and a huge relief for his parents. We shared this miraculous story last Sunday to the parent and kids currently attending KHJB’s Manjushri program in which we teach the children some basic Dharma knowledge and making prayer to Lord Manjushri. By getting the children to engage in recitation of OMAH RA BA TSA NA DHI daily, we are noticing improvements in some of the children’s behavior although they only have been reciting it for 3 weeks. I too see the significant improvement in my own 2 kids behavior both socially n academically. I strongly recommend parents to get your kids started with the practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us such a supreme practice to gain wisdom.

  29. Pastor Yek Yee on Jul 18, 2012 at 12:42 am

    After three and half years in Kechara, I really believed that the miracle always happened around me. See, I knew this young boy two years ago, I never noticed he got speak problem until I read this comic story. What make me feel touched was Rinpoche like usually helped someone behind the scene. How many people benefit because of Rinpoche tireless showed his compassion to everyone…Rinpoche will not be remember the person he had helped, however the people who be helped by Rinpoche they will never forget!

  30. ECheah on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    This is just one of many countless things Rinpoche has done to benefit all who have required his help. We have many worldly/mundane problems and difficulties that are part and parcel of samsaric existence that out of compassion, Rinpoche has had to deal with. For if we can get past our worldly problems, then perhaps we could concentrate more on spiritual pursuits. Having received the benefit, let us not forget to repay the kindness of our Guru. The highest offering to our Guru is our practice and mind transformation, because that is all that matters in the end.

  31. Irene Lim on Jul 21, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Chef Au is Head Chef of Kechara Oasis. This is indeed a true story and testimony of how powerful and compassionate Rinpoche is. Not long after Kechara Oasis Restaurant was newly opened, when I was with Rinpoche out of concern I reported to him that Chef Au’s son is incapable of speaking coherently and he is already 9 years of age. Rinpoche spontaneously promised that he will heal Chef Au’s son, Jie in the course of time.

  32. sockwan on Aug 4, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    This is not superstitious at all that miracles happen. It is our motivation and sincerity that created a cause for good things to happen. If we just pray and not doing anything to improve, nothing will happen. Apart from praying to Setrap, Chef Au and his wife works/volunteers in Kechara Oasis, they became vegetarians. They have faith in Rinpoche and the three jewels. With their sincerity, they see the result. Rejoice!

  33. Grace Leong on Aug 11, 2012 at 12:09 am

    I am totally touched by this real story ! Rejoice for this child and his family ! It must be such a great relief for Chef Au and GG to overcome the feeling of being helpless towards their own child . Rinpoche has shown us again and again his consistent care and love for all his students and their family. Thank you dear Rinpoche for tirelessly caring for us .

  34. Julien Roth on Sep 10, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    This is magical Rinpoche. There is so much power within Rinpoche, and here is the proof. I actually do believe in this story and i know that it is true. Dharma can do many amazing things like this, and this is just the start.

  35. Lucas Roth on Sep 12, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    these stories are so interesting and happy in the end, he can now talk and he lives a good life, it could have been much worse. if it went on he wouldn’t have an education. thank you Rinpoche for blessing him and thank you for sharing this

    佛法真的是给孩子最好的礼物,能获得上师的庇护真的无比殊胜。让孩子种下佛种子,种下佛法的印记,让孩子生生世世受用。

  38. Jacinta Goh on Feb 7, 2014 at 12:12 am

    With folded hands, I sincerely thank Seng Piow. Thank you very much for sharing all those stories with us. You see, I have not even met H.E tsem Rinpoche in person, but your stories (includes other stories) on H.E really inspires me. Tremendously. Due to these stories, I am able to meditate on H.E’s kindness and compassion. (In order to fuel my spiritual journey, I must be able to see my Guru as Buddha).It was due to these stories, I began to chant several short mantras such as Manjushri and Lord Setrap mantra. That is how my journey began.

    Many thanks!

  39. Ani Kunzang on Mar 27, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    Rinpoche, I love you for your presence in this world, for the non-conventional, creative and surprising ways you and, through you, your students express and share the essence of Bodhicitta, for your absolute selflessness and unwavering commitment to end suffering for all. There are no words to express my gratitude for the appearance, in these confused and dark times, of pure Teachers like yourself who will never give up, even as we may falter and turn circles in our ignorance. Thank you.

  40. Sean Wang on Mar 27, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    I rejoice for this family. It is true that children are benefitted by baptisms! Miracles do happen! I love these stories as they get to share all of the wonderful miracles in Kechara!

  41. Edward ooi on Mar 28, 2014 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I’m glad that Jie is finally able to speak normally. It is very ‘special’ that his first complete sentence is OM AH RA PATSA NA DI but the second sentence is funny at the same time is rude. But the only thing I don’t understand is why Jie wouldn’t speak for 9 years?

  42. Su Ming on Mar 28, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    This is not the first “miracle” for the kids I have heard of. There are many more via Rinpoche & the pastor’s blessing. My nephew was one of them.

    Also another student of Rinpoche who’s wife was pregnant when she met Rinpoche. Rinpoche prescribed Manjushri mantra for her to do daily and blow on to her tummy. And Rinpoche requested the mother to blow onto the baby’s mouth when the baby is born. Manjushri mantra should be the first to enter the baby’s mouth. I was there with the family throughout until today where the baby is now a 5yrs old girl. She is bright, quick, absorb information fast above average kids. Amazing how Rinpoche & the pastor’s blessing has benefitted this little girl.

  43. Wah Ying on Mar 29, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    看到勇杰能开口说话,能用言语表达自己内心的感受,的确是太棒的事了。因为父母亲的一个信念,对仁波切的相信,加持三宝的加持,奇迹就出现了。只要愿意去相信,只要愿意去尝试,只要坚持下去,总会看到曙光。

  44. Leslie Leong on Apr 4, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I have always been fascinated with The Miracles stories. Sometimes I repeat the stories to others. This is a way of keeping my faith and believe. I wish one day will have the opportunity to meet with you.

  45. Edwin Tan on May 6, 2014 at 1:44 am

    This is not the first display of miracles by Rinpoche. I have witnessed many others, obvious or subtle, yet Rinpoche do not openly talks about what miracles he performs.

    If we trust our guru whole heartedly, trust in the Buddhas, the Dharma, and follow our guru’s advices and instructions [without complaints] explicitly, we will receive his blessings and miracles.

  46. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 15, 2014 at 3:31 am

    Many miraculous things can happen when we are in the vicinity of a realised lama. Tsem Rinpoche is realised master who can bless people and awaken their potential. No matter how latent our seeds are when it comes across a power like Tsem Rinpoche, it can help those seeds germinate and help them continue a path that they have engaged in previously.

    Tsem Rinpoche: If we don’t learn dharma, then when obstacles arise in our mind which is often, we cannot apply dharma remedies and dharma methods. When we just work and eat and live and not learn dharma, then we can only apply secular methods which will only yield temporary results. Hence samsara continues on and on. It is important to read/listen to the many articles here on dharma and refresh ourselves and discuss here together without winning or losing, so that our knowledge can grow. With knowledge, when obstacles arise, then easier for us to apply dharma methods and remedies and solve our problems to continue. If we continue this way, we will advance. Tsem Rinpoche

    For Od Howell – Thank you so much for sharing and your interest in His Eminence’s aunt Princess Nirgidma. Princess Nirgidma is indeed a remarkable and very intelligent lady who could hold her own with the men.

    Pastor Jean Ai shared that “she had a traditional Torghut upbringing but thanks to her father who believed his children should have a Western education, she was also visionary for her time. I mean, an Asian woman married to a French diplomat? And fluent in French, and as well as English, Chinese and Russian? And holding conversations and intellectual discourses with men in a time when women were to be seen and not heard? Talk about forging a path for Mongolian women.” http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/my-great-aunt-the-princess.html

    There’s another article you might like also http://www.dayarmongol.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6535:2011-12-09-16-03-45&catid=24&Itemid=300061

    I’m sorry to inform you also that His Eminence has never met her and is not in contact with any of them in the family so we can not help with your request any further.

    I wish you all the best with your research on Princess Nirgidma and looking forward to your fruitful results in the near future.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

    The Bionic Woman never remained quiet and hide or avoid – I LIKE PEOPLE WHO TAKE ACTION and not watch and remain silent when something can and should be done. I guess taking action to me is an expression of compassion in action and that is why we are Buddhists/spiritual. We have to be Buddhists in action, not in name only. Whatever religion we believe in or are theists, we are still human who can take good positive action to make a difference and we should make a difference. We should always try to make a difference. Life is not about only good things for ourselves, but the difference we can make in others’ lives. This is so important. ~ His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche . The narration of the relationship between Milarepa and Marpa was so entertaining that one will remember it always.
    The training that Milarepa has to undergo reminds me of the Shaolin Temple shows where the student is made to carry water or rocks from distance river or quarry and how the master made the student work tirelessly to train their mind, to clear away the preconception mind one has.
    It is so like us to have this attitude. I have seen this happening to people where for example they did something good or credible they have this projection that others should “look up at them” or “treat them like a VIP” and when all this does not happen they get angry and their ego comes in and they create so much trouble for others .
    It is true that upbringing plays a big role . For example if a little toddler happens to walk and trip and if adults rush quickly to pick them up and start saying “oh you poor thing ” and then tells the child “let us beat the floor cause the floor made you fall” and the adult then goes to use hand to “beat the floor” what the child learns is “it’s never my fault, it’s always the fault of others”. This is crazy but I think most of you have seen adults doing this when a child falls.
    I notice also in family with a few kids , the oldest are usually more stable and matured while the younger ones tends to be more “baby” even though they have grown up to be adults. This happens cause the oldest child are more independent when they are young, having to do most things themselves . Then comes little brother or sister and the older sibling loves playing the role of the older brother and sister. The older sibling will always run to the younger ones to help in just almost everything . Maybe younger one drops a toy and instead of picking it up himself and older sibling quickly dash over to pick up for the younger one. Thus the younger child will grow up with the preconception that others will be always at their feet doing everything for them and how they should be treated and when things don’t go their way their mind becomes neurotic.
    Thus like Milarepa , one needs to change one’s attitude and preconception mind.
    I will use the story of Milarepa to remind myself not to have a preconception of how things should be .
    Thank you once again Rinpoche for this entertaining but educational video.

    dear his eminence tsem rinpoche,
    although i should work on my disertation about the genocide in mongolia in 1937 as an effect from russian communist policy i can not resist continue to do research about your aunt nirgidma, since i found her story in internet by accident. is it that i am myself half mongolian half german, growing up in both cultures or does she appear to me as a spiritual sister to my beloved grandfather, son of a mongolian nobleman, who studied in 1926 in germany as one of the first mongolian students, i am so much fascinated about her. in opposite to my grandfather who was persecuted by the communists and even arrested twice for political reasons nirgimda seamed to had a happy end. i bought her publication she made 1937 in paris with old mongolian folk songs and gave it this summer when i was in mongolia to my relative, a famous composer, who said he never heard these songs before. i cant let go the idea of writing a book about her and record the songs again for the mongolians of nowerdays. it is very hard to find information in internet. today i even read the whole correspondence between teilhard de chardin and lucile swan to find fragments about nirgidma and it was a kind of revelation. your excellency, can you help me to find her children or any other descendants to find out, if a publication is wished by the family? we mongolians had a very difficult history within the past hundred years and this princess makes us so proud to know that she existed. when the russians banned buddhist religion in mongolia and even changed the alphabet from old mongolian into russian cyrillic letters it was a cut off from the mongolian culture and their traditions.
    i would also like to know if tsedn dorzhi, nirgidmas half brother who stayed in china is still alive? he must be very old now. i hope very much to hear from you, may all the love and peace be with you, yours sincerely, od

    Question asked by Maria
    Your Excellency,
    Greetings of love and peace. I am embarassed with my question but I am taking the courage to do so – why is it that during my recitation and meditation practice I am greatly disturbed by a sudden noise as if someone intentionally kicks the furnitures or noise from the incense and candle burning? I can feel shadows also in the room where I do my practice. I would like to know if there is a remedy on this because I get really startled each time thus preventing me from learning full concentration. The noises start to happen when my body begins to heat up. Is this a sign of obstacle Thank you Your Eminence.


    Response by tsemtulku
    Dear Maria, many experience what you experience. It’s sometimes ‘common’. Do Sindongma’s prayer and mantra for one round before starting your practice daily and the ‘shadows’ will dispel with time. I wish you luck. Tsem Rinpoche

    From His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche

    Today was not a very good day for me. I was washing in the shower and the shower is very small and always had a problem due to lack of air. So I had hyperventilated and starting blacking out and hard to breathe. I had this problems for months now, but only today I almost blacked out. Lucky Pastor Seng Piow was around to help me and wipe me down and get me to a chair. Also when showering due to my weight, my back hurts and hard to wash the legs, so when I bend to wash, it is very difficult. Need a chair in the shower, but cannot fit one. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for your help and wiping me down. Now I am better with the fan on me.

    Pastor Seng Piow found a person from China who can do treatment on neck, shoulder, shoulder blades and back pain problems. Went to try and the diminutive person was strong and quite effective. After searching for months, finally found one that is effective and reasonably priced too. Those areas were painful for a few weeks and today there is some relief. Much better.

    你知道吗?藏传佛教的法会,自修或共修时的唱诵有分细、慢、长、柔和、忿怒等的美妙乐音。这些音调来自虚空,来自传承祖师聆听了来自空行母或本尊自身的微妙唱诵而编排,非为行者自己编辑。

    其含义包括运用音声做供养和赞叹三宝诸尊的功德。同时是修炼自身的气、脉和明点使其得加持行者的凡夫身为适合的容器接受佛法和密法的流露。并可获得身心自在。

The Unknown

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

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

    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

Yamantaka is an emanation of the Bodhisattva Manjushri in the form of Dorje Jigjet. Yamantaka is perhaps the archetypal form of the wrathful (dragpo) class of Tibetan deity, and his practice has always been associated with extremely agonistic ritual powers, often used explicitly to defend not simply the Buddhist Dharma, but those countries and sovereign powers that espouse it. Martin A. Mills, Identity, Ritual and State in Tibetan Buddhism - The Foundations of Authority in Gelukpa Monasticism, p 86. Pastor Adeline

Envy and jealousy are very harmful because, you are never ever satisfied with what you have and you never reflect on what you have. You constantly live your life based on what you do not have. (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB
