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

  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.

Dear blog friends,

I’ve created this section for all of you to share your opinions, thoughts and feelings about whatever interests you.

Everyone has a different perspective, so this section is for you.

Tsem Rinpoche


Scheduled Chat Sessions

We will be having a Kechara Chat Time this Wednesday April 23th 10-11pm (GMT+8) with the title The Benefits of Doing Retreats. Please come and join in the chat for a fun time and support. Thanks all see you all there.


Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

Be Relevant

This is the blog of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Please respect this space. We request that all participants here are respectful of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his organisation, Kechara.

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at care@kechara.com and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

    Dear Dwayne Johnson, the pacifier and Vincent Tan,
    With all due respect to you guys, please respect Rinpoche’s blog and do not have unnecessary misunderstandings here. This comment section was setup to “share your opinions, thoughts and feelings about whatever interests you”. Please use it wisely to share your thoughts and opinions constructively and I would advice you guys to share your opinions about the posts that Rinpoche posted if you truly respect Rinpoche. If you obsessively post things on a particular religion or master, you are proselytising. If you post once in awhile to share something universal and moving, that’s alright. But to proselytize here, that’s not particularly respectful especially if its from a different faith from Rinpoche’s. Yes, Rinpoche do regular posts things on masters and practitioners from various faiths because he is broadminded and wishes to share the universality of spirituality. This should not be used as an excuse to proselytize on his blog. This is not hard and fast rules but mere etiquette of someone who respects one another’s faith and beliefs. Don’t you think? This is not meant to offend anyone but meant to clarify things.

    to both Vincent and the pacifier, even you yourself are confuse of what you are posting. “if this blog side just share only buddhism..whats the point that guru shared about Jesus Christ, Mother Theresa, posted pictured of Dalai Lama with Blessed Pope John Paul II and so on and so forth..the 84000 of syakmuni’s teaching do not include points that rinpoche shared on other religious figures and yet he shared from his perspective point of views which he believes would drawn many people to visit his blog and to create interest so as to benefits others..besides..he shared too other teachings on nick vujicic, the no arms and no legs charismatic evangelical pastor, and other dharma center master cheng yen.”- by Vincent. yes, you wrote that correctly, Rinpoche shares about the all this and also the other religion in a manner that allow everyone here to understand about other religions, but Rinpoche articles is all about facts and informative articles that allow all of us understand more about the others, but did you ever see Rinpoche posted any prayers or even praises to other religious community blog? you can say i am biased, but ask yourself the real reason you keep on posting praises in a Buddhist blog, and yet what is the point what you want to convey?
    What ever point i am referring here is that is you as a guest visiting the house of a person, shouldn’t you be respecting owner of the house, lets say if the owner is a Buddhist, shouldn’t you in a respective manner as acknowledge the customs of the owner? We do not mind if you share about facts on the similarity that Christian and Catholic has with Buddhism, but really from you sharing it leans towards one side. This blog is not meant a platform to convert people to either side of the religion, but more of knowledge and understanding. I can say if you have been following Rinpoche blog and read all the articles here, you should have understand what Rinpoche is conveying.

    people are sharing useful wisdom to each and everyone of you and hence I did saw Vincent posted a Tibetan chant translated in English in taking the calls of becoming protectors of other sentient beings. are all of you [...] doing that? instead of throwing tantrums, all of you trying to escape the truth and make ways for wrath and anger and mishandle the comments in an unfair manner. guru himself, as all of you said is generous and giving and that’s why he allows other articles to come and drop by to make his blog interesting as once Paul said, Buddhist is the only religion that embrace other religious beliefs?

    Vincent, Rinpoche shares about other religions and other religious figures to create religious harmony. He is open, generous and giving. You are ‘sharing’ to create religious disparity and trying to convert. There is a huge difference. Go share on a Muslim site and see the reaction.

    Dear Vincent, please respect all the Buddhists here. Your religion is not superior to any other religion. Create your own blog and preach there please. Thanks.

    Wisdom that Works
    by Berni Dymet
    Prov. 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
    I don’t think there’s one person on this planet that doesn’t want to have some more wisdom. I mean wisdom’s a good thing – right? So why aren’t we all a whole bunch wiser than we actually are?
    Answer: because wisdom involves sacrifice. The dictionary definition of wisdom is this: having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; and the soundness of an action or decision by applying this experience and knowledge, and good judgment.
    Boil that down and there are two parts to Wisdom. Knowing what to do – and then actually getting on and doing it.
    And therein lies the problem. We’re all happy to have a bit of a theory lesson – but when it gets to putting that wisdom into action – we discover that wisdom has a cost.
    According to King Solomon – the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. But then, many people don’t want to hear that. So here’s what happens – they keep on making the same mistakes, over and over and over again.

    Hi dwayne..is that your real name..i should say..well..its doesnt matter..sorrry to assume that you are a Christian..good to know that you are raised a buddhist and grown up as a buddhist.it must be worthwhile spiritual journey for you to go through.the theme called 1 sect 1 dharma center that emphasize on buddhist teachings ONLY i should say would defeat the purpose what rinpoche wanted to emphasize on his blog..this blog has been visited more than a million visitors and its open..its never restricted or block anyone to go in to share their views which includes the chatroom..all views and opinions are most welcome which the administration allows that and i believe rinpoche would love more opionionated views and other articles to be post here which everyone is free to share.if this blog side just share only buddhism..whats the point that guru shared about Jesus Christ, Mother Theresa, posted pictured of Dalai Lama with Blessed Pope John Paul II and so on and so forth..the 84000 of syakmuni’s teaching do not include points that rinpoche shared on other religious figures and yet he shared from his perspective point of views which he believes would drawn many people to visit his blog and to create interest so as to benefits others..besides..he shared too other teachings on nick vujicic, the no arms and no legs charismatic evangelical pastor, and other dharma center master cheng yen.eventhough he shared ghostly figures on ghouls and spirits-big foot and fairies etc.are these teachings based on ONLY buddhist teaching or just merely [...]?.so having said…did rinpoche of the blog basically shared only ONE and his OWN views and just purely based on the 84000 texts or just the lam rim texts? NO..he shared other world views to make his blog visitable and interesting..what do you think now..

    Dear Vincent, thank you for your lengthy explanation on your journey from Buddhist and becoming a Catholic, with all due respect we are all happy that you found a religion that you find comfort in and suitable to you. And for your information, i was never an Atheist or even or Christian, i was brought up as a Buddhist from young, well assuming the person of such and such without proper investigation and even understanding of the background is very much not necessary. For your info, i respect all religions, and even the person from other faith, because all religion main purpose is to bring about change and teaches about right moral conduct and bring about peace to all. But from the point of view of what this blog was created in the first place, it is to bring Dharma to all people, and even utmost importance is for those who are seeking spirituality in Buddhism, is to be FOCUS to one, and not be distracted from the others. It is due to this reason, many of those who Centre hopping, from one centre to another, does not find the answer they are looking for, why? it is Because they receive too many different advice and information which shrouded their mind, it cause more confusion, and that is why they could not even progressed in their practice, and then blame and getting angry at.
    Tsem Rinpoche always promote 1 Lama, 1 Centre, and encourage those seeking spirituality in Buddhism to focus on one and go all the way, yet not losing the value of respecting other religion, which is what we see in Tsem Rinpoche. So my point is, it is not being selfish to just learn ONLY one religion, because when one FCOUS ONLY on one religion and study all the way, it provide faster and more concrete results then being half heartedly learning Buddhism, and then confusing their mind with another. if you Look even in all the Great Attain Master, i believe that you do since you went to many centre before, all of this Great Master focus on their own Sect and their Yidam.
    Not everyone mind is the same that is why Buddha Shakyamuni has 84,000 teaching that is the remedies to all 84,000 mind. As a religious practitioner, i think we should respect other religion, understanding the vision and goal of the centre, before posting things which can create confusion. what if there are people posting prayers in tibetan or in Pali in a Christian blog, what would the visitor think? do you think they will be confused, and the community in that blog will feel that their space is being disrespected. The praises that you posted are beautiful, i believe you can benefit more people if you post in forum Lowyat and other religious community blog.

    Continue from below, some even close themselves and left their previous paths because they are upset and no answer on their prayers..and they go on searching and searching until they found their own path of their choice in the name of protest..no one can control them as they cant accept the fact that they themselves protesting or angry on certain issues which made them close their heart, mind, soul and spirit to accept the fact all paths are meant to be peaceful, loving and caring..but some perceive in a wrong way and some even said that the scriptures or holy books regress instead of progressing without they themselves knowing or studying the books by their own..the translations went ugly more than benefit others..but who translated it? Humans? Or gurus? Or yourself? People tend to look at the ugly side of everything instead the positive and beautiful angles as we tend to be in this manner.we opt and tend to look at the dark side instead on the bright side..i dont mean to offend anyone but be more open instead of being selfish to ONLY learn one’s religion..

    Hi dwayne..hope you are doing fine and well.dont be disheartened.Your devotion to the triple jewel especially to guru amazed me..this blog absolutely its free for everyone to go in and to post their opinion and articles which definitely will benefit many so as to deepened understanding of one’s another religion.i believe that this very main aim of the blog is to create understanding of each other beliefs and religion and paths so as to reach harmony..all teachings and religion as well as paths coexist together and leads to the One True God. Besides, guru himself wrote articles about Jesus and embedded Mother Theresa’s pictures onto his blog..He has his motivation to do..no religion nor any paths own by a single organisation or a community as we have our own free will to embrace and practice them..same to you..i believe before you are buddhist.you might be an antheist or Christian but you chose to believe in buddhism. Me too..am a buddhist but chose to embrace catholicsm on my own free will and beliefs as well as encounters..all articles posted is to benefits all and no danger of that so as long as you are open..i am catholic by faith but i did join several at gompas as well as temples and moreover joined in in the spirit of goodwill to attend dharma classes, and quranic studies to deepened my understanding on each paths so as to enlightened myself to be more adaptable and respect others as human being and beings on the earth..to love each other as Christ commanded and taught.

    The Great Confirmer
    Revelation 3:14
    The word Amen solemnly confirms what went before, and Jesus is the great Confirmer; immutable forever is “the Amen” in all His promises . Sinner , I would comfort you with this reflection. Jesus Christ said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” 1 If you come to Him, He will say “Amen” in your soul; His promise shall be true to you . He said in the days of His flesh, “A bruised reed he will not break.” 2 Poor, broken, bruised heart, if you come to Him, He will say “Amen” to you, and it will be true in your soul as in hundreds of cases in years gone by.
    Christian , isn’t this very comforting to you also, that there is not a word that has come from the Savior’s lips that He has ever retracted? The words of Jesus will stand when heaven and earth pass away. If you get ahold of but half a promise, you will find it true. Watch out for those who ignore the promises and so miss much of the comfort of God’s Word.
    Jesus is Yes and Amen in all His offices . He was a Priest to pardon and cleanse once; He is Amen as Priest still. He was a King to rule and reign for His people and to defend them with His mighty arm; He is an Amen King, the same still. He was a Prophet of old, to foretell good things to come; His words remain trustworthy and true—He is an Amen Prophet. He is Amen as to the merit of His blood; He is Amen as to His righteousness. That sacred robe will remain most fair and glorious when nature shall decay. He is Amen in every single title that He bears; your Husband, never seeking a divorce; your Friend, sticking closer than a brother; your Shepherd, with you in death’s dark vale; your Help and your Deliverer; your Refuge and your Strong Tower; the Vessel of your strength, your confidence, your joy, your all in all, and your Yes and Amen in everything.

    Resurrection? Prove It to Me
    by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson “Raised from the dead? Sure. Right. And I have a bridge I’d like to sell you.”
    That’s how Thomas might have responded if he had lived in our day. “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands, and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”1 He’d seen dead people before. And Jesus was dead. He sounds like sophisticated rationalists of the Twenty-first Century. “It isn’t plausible,” they would contend. “It didn’t happen.” But what if it did happen? Thomas was convinced when Jesus appeared to him, reached out his hands to Thomas, and said, “Put your finger here.” Thomas dropped to his knees. “My Lord and my God!”2 It was self-hypnosis, you counter. The disciples wanted to believe that their Lord was not dead, so they just invented it out of whole cloth. Really? Let’s look at some of the evidence. Jesus’ body was missing. If the Jews could have found it, they could have stilled the preaching of Jesus’ resurrection that filled Jerusalem. But they could not.
    The body wasn’t stolen. The Romans had no motive. The Jews had no motive. Ah-ha, you say, the disciples stole it. There is the matter of the Roman guards, and the disciples’ initial disbelief when the women brought them the news early that Easter morning. This brings me to my third point.
    If the disciples had stolen the body, you wouldn’t expect them to risk their lives. People don’t die for what they know is not true. But the disciples put their lives on the line, and nearly all were eventually martyred for their faith. They certainly believed it.
    The church mushroomed size in Jerusalem, the very place he was crucified. Followers of Jesus in the city of Jerusalem grew from a few dozen to thousands upon thousands soon after Jesus’ resurrection. They believed it was true.
    Contemporary documents refer to the event. Thallus the Samaritan, Suetonius, Tacitus, Pliny contain references to Jesus. Jewish historian Josephus writes about Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. They knew something had happened.
    Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is actually more plausible than any other explanation. That’s why we Christians make such a big deal about Easter. That’s why we celebrate.
    Jesus’ resurrection means that death is not the end. That though my body may lie mouldering in the ground, Jesus, whom the Father raised from the dead, gives me eternal life. Ultimately, we Christians believe, our bodies, too, will be raised from the dead.
    And since Jesus is not dead, people can encounter him today. You can know him through a personal relationship. I could point to lots of people who can testify what Jesus has done in their lives to bring them from the brink of disaster to peace and meaning and joy. He changes people for good.
    If you’re not sure can’t really say you’ve met this risen Jesus, this Easter Sunday why don’t you slip into church to seek him. And perhaps in the midst of our celebration, you’ll find him for yourself.
    He’s alive, you know. That’s what Easter is all about!

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.

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

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

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

I love country roads. I wish this one lead to a secluded wooden retreat house where I lived away and far from the trappings of samsara and it's endless deceptions. Those who agree or participate in the deceptions will not only invite depression and disillusionment, but perhaps eventually be 'crippled' by it and trapped for long spells of 'time'. TR

What a nice comment by Antonio Rocco Romeo left on my facebook comments. I like people who have gratitude and show it. Not just say it but show it because they are the people who will get far and be less self-introverted creating less unhappiness in their minds. Happiness comes from having gratitude. Tsem Rinpoche

In horror of death, I took to the mountains— Again and again I meditated on the uncertainty of the hour of death, Capturing the fortress of the deathless unending nature of mind. Now all fear of death is over and done. ~ MILAREPA

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo: "However dark our minds may be, however hard our hearts may be, this is not our true nature... enlightenment is when we finally come into our true humanity." ... pic Korea Nov 2013 ( We must keep practicing and applying the dharma strongly to bring our real nature out. Don't let temporary emotions and dark feelings let us give up our dharma practice or works. Don't listen to people who have done very little for us or what they did for us heralds only more sufferings. Listen to the dharma. Tsem Rinpoche )

    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

    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

~~Prison~~ Those who really want the dharma to grow within themselves and to grow for others should never fear hard work, timing, difficulties, struggles, disappointments because it is for a good cause. Working for Dharma is not a prison or work, but it is purely spiritual practice. It is purely collection of merit and purification. Actually not doing dharma work is the real prison.~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/prison.html From: June Tang (Khjb)
