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.

    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.

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    I am new but 3 days ago I attended my father in law’s (FIL) Christian funeral which he converted 4 years ago. We got to know only now during my sister in law speech who was a Christian pastor. although he was baptised to Christian but he has never mentioned to us at all. I remembered my FIL told me but not the son that; one day when I die he wish to be cremated with his ashes to be thrown to the sea only. Yes he was cremated yesterday. On the first day of the wake service I couldn’t feel any peace, on the 2nd day I brought 7 lotus candles offered to Buddha and lit up with my children and told them chant OM MANI PADME HUNG and a bouquet of flowers too. I must share with you the candles light from what I learned from Rinpoche is the light of WISDOM yes I can find peace then. I chanted 20 malas on the 3rd day and my feeling of sadness was calmer yes, I understand Buddhism more about death & reincarnation again from your blog & transcript so the feeling of sadness was more calm then before. I am more accepting about Rebirth, Old aged, sickness & death. I understand about human suffering. My deepest appreciation from your Buddhadharma talk it really changed my life. It’s a miracle and magic I guess, one fine day I just needed to go Kechara Paradise to invite Je Tsongkapa home early this year without realising it was actually Tsongkapa day. In no time I think 10 days I can memorised Migstema so well. I do my chanting when my mind disturb and I am still on medication for my depression. Migtsema indeed calm my mind…. Every night if I am disturb again I will plug on my earphone and listen to your voices of Buddhdharma talk on YouTube to find peace and I can sleep rather I rely on the one medicine that put me to sleep.
    That’s wonderful for me too.
    We were grateful to have attended the children baptism on Wesak day and the children were officially baptised by Rinpoche’s blessing. I was afraid someone will convert my children if I don’t do something. They chant OM Ah RA Pa SA NA DHIH and wearing the Manjushri chakra too. I got them Tsongkapa box set each for (body speech & mind) and a stupa too.

    Warmest regards

    Dear Rinpoche

    I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that your teachings have changed my life a lot. First of all, is your inspiration book “Why You Make Yourself Unhappy” how this book can changed my life. It’s amazing! I sincerely want to find out more about you and in depth towards Buddhism. Along the journey finding about Rinpoche I went into YouTube learning what I want to know about Buddhism. It’s so awesome as if I am there listening to you. I decided to find out about Kechara. My first visit I bought Tara pendant, immediately the 2 box sets of Tsongkapa & Setrap prayers but never approach anyone yet for a year. Until last September, I decided to write a mail to you personally and here I am since January 2014 I became member. Of course, when I first came to Kechara I request to meet you unfortunenately you have gone to US.

    Kind regards

    Dear Chuah Su Ming,
    You are naturally a kind person. You can think deeply and give yourself to those around you. You are super intelligent with high IQ and EQ..rare combination. I didn’t teach you anything about kindness. It was in you already. You are naturally caring, naturally responsible and naturally a loyal person. Anyone who has the good fortune to be your friend will find a true friend in you. Even when people play mind games with you, you are forgiving and let it be. You have a huge capacity to forgive beyond ordinary mortals. You always give people a chance and focus on their strong points.

    You never ask anything from people for yourself. You have contributed to the growth of dharma, the benefits of those around you very much. You always take care of those around you without ever showing anything but true love. I’ve witnessed this again and again. You are a very good representative of kindness, strong woman, good human being, good Buddhist and excellent example of a Kechara member.

    You have benefitted me and my life very much beyond a doubt. I often reflect on so much you have done and I am indebted to you. I mean every word.

    You are one of the best persons I have met in my whole life. I am very honored to have you as a friend, family and student. I wish to have a pure and good relationship with you for the rest of my life. Gold like you must be kept. Not easy to find solid gold among the rocks. In you I can trust and believe in you, because we are living in a world that trusting others is a difficult thing to do. Whenever I think of you, only warm and grateful thoughts arise in my mind.

    Thank you for really absorbing the dharma within your being because dharma just made you even more beautiful than you already naturally are. You are a stunning person because you choose to care about others. You have genuine compassion with action coupled with results. You are always results orientated and very good example to those around you.

    You have my good wishes, loyalty, care and genuine love. Much respects and fondly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Ullambana is also a very time to repay the kindness of the Three Jewels, one of which is robes offering to the sangha.

    The sangha’s robes represent the vows & commitment held by an ordained person. It is also one of the 4 main necessities of the sangha. By making this offering, you create the causes to continue the growth of the sangha who in turn remain to spread the dharma – the highest form of giving to all.

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 is one of the best Avalokitesvara thangkas I have ever seen. I rarely see an Avalokitesvara that draws me or I really like. I am very particular about thangka paintings. But this one is really done by a super skilled artist. The eyes are perfect and the gaze is the correct angle of calm/contemplativeness. The lips, nose and proportions are stunning. The coloring and feel is regality and serenity with great compassion. He feels alive. I would love to get a copy of this very much. Tsem Rinpoche

Look at this massive thangka of the Lord of Wisdom Manjushri in Tibet. The bigger the thangka it is believed, the more blessed the area will be. See all the people congregated around it to pay homage and make offerings. Amazing. May you all be blessed by this too and be connected to Manjushri. Tsem Rinpoche

Mr. Lai himself is a very kind and steady person and an important member of Kechara also who always keeps his promises. Many in Kechara respect and love Mr. Lai. Like father like son. Kind people.

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

    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.

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

~Question asked by Doreen Teoh~ Dear Rinpoche, Before i begin to ask for your help, my family and I would like to wish to you on best of health and hope you are feeling better each day. My youngest son who is 11 years old, is a special needs child, he has a mild austism, and diffulty in learning, how am i as a mother helps him to gain merits and purify his karma? May i know is because of my karma, my son is born this way, or because of his own? ~Response by tsemtulku~ I do not know the karma that caused your son to be like this precisely, but I know how you can avoid it for future lives by studying the appropriate texts… It will all be in the Lam Rim. Please study this. Also another text that will help you so much is the Wheel of Sharp Weapons..it talks about karma. Very helpful. Manjushri practice for you and your son will help very much. I wish you luck so much. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by ken~ Teacher, I hear your explaination about praying and that we should not ask for things from the Buddhas. I understand. But is it ok to pray to Buddhas and ask for blessings of good health to my parents? I been doing it for years. Is it right or does my prayers work? Thank you! ~Response by tsemtulku~ Yes, it’s ok to do that. In fact it would be excellent if you entered a short retreat on White Tara dedicated to your parents. White Tara has special practices we can do to dedicate to ppl for their long lives and merit. Good luck and thanks. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Response by tsemtulku~ 2. Look at why you hate yourself leading to depression. If you know the cause of your self hatred, look for a solution and go after the solution without giving up. 3. Achieve what you wish to achieve. Do not be bound by culture, restrictions, face and guilt..just go and do something you are passionate about and go all the way. Make sure it doesn’t harm any being and go all the way..money isn’t everything anymore. Migtseyma and the study of dharma will bring you a long, long, long way…depression arises from the mind, so ultimately you need a remedy directed for the mind to help you. It would be good to study dharma now. You will find lots of answers ….that will be a start. After all, no one wishes to suffer and you don’t deserve it.I wish you well and true happiness… http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by John~ Dear Rinpoche, I'm suffering from self hate and depression, mood swings from time to time..I've been diagnosed at having bipolar disorder….I think about death at times.and the reason for this to avoid life.. I find I also have difficulty putting effort things I do..I'm seem to get overwhelmed by challenges easuly. Recently I have started reciting Migsetma. I want to heal relationships with my parents and with people in general,Just need some word of advice. Thanks.. ~Response by tsemtulku~ Since you know what is wrong the key ingredients are: 1. Consistent effort without giving up no matter how hard it gets. If you give up, it will lead to depression as you know you didn’t give it your all. Depressin usually comes form something we are re-living and hanging onto. Wishing things to be the way we want it when in reality it is not….wishing for the way we want it and not accepting it as it is will lead to depression. Let it go. From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Response by tsemtulku~ Dear Raluca, Very very good question. I am glad you asked. Tibetan Buddhist words have very little English equivalent. It is a very deep language and many words are not even available in English. Nirvana is not referring here to THE PERFECT ENLIGHTENMENT OF A FULLY AWAKENED BUDDHA. Nirvana here refers to the peace and tranquility we achieve in lower meditational attainments. Some ppl achieve this peace, and get stuck on it. In the past ppl can be in this peaceful state for days but it seems like minutes only when they ‘wake’. They are absorbed in this peace and get somewhat attached to it when it is a by product of the actual goal we are trying to attain…so protecting from Nirvana’s peace is referring to the minor attainments we gain from meditation and not to be stuck on it and go further. I hope this helps you. Much good luck with your holy and sacred Vajra Yogini beginner’s practice. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Raluca~ Dear Rinpoche, in your posting Tea offering to Vajrayogini.We can read "Please protect me from the fearful enemies of samsara and nirvana’s peace". Why would one need to be protected from nirvana's peace?Thank you very much. From: June Tang (Khjb)
