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.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

    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。

  11. jerry_sito on Dec 7, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    感恩仁波切的开示与教诲

    佛法是给予小朋友最好的礼物,加上尊贵的仁波切给予的爱与加持,而这一份殊胜的礼物,将能造福小朋友的一生,让他们一生都在仁波切与三宝的保护下成长

    小朋友倘若有机会从小就开始修行佛法,那么他们将有更充足的时间来实践许多的佛法修持,仁波切常鼓励我们要让小朋友从小就应该让他们接触佛法,因为佛法是给予他们最棒的礼物

    祈愿所有的小朋友,能从小就接触佛法,在仁波切与三宝的加持下,健康成长

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    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

  13. 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.

  14. 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 .

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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 !

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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. 🙂

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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!

  32. 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。

  33. 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.

  34. 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。。。。。

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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!

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. Doreen Teoh on Jul 12, 2012 at 10:05 am

    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.

    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!

      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.

    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.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

    Miracles do happen,when we have faith and trust in our Guru.What is important is to follow Rinpoche’s advice and do as instructed by our Guru to clear the osbtacles all the way.Angie and Herry were so fortunate to have meet Rinpoche.Its because of Rinpoche ‘s compassion and caring for his student Angie’s life was saved.Infact Rinpoche has helped many people through his intervention, advice and instructions.

    WOW….interesting a miracles true story. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.Reciting mantras by family members and doing 20 pujas done at the monastery to help the baby. These proved that pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and for protection, good health and long life.This show us how powerful pujas can help us when we have trust and faith in our Guru.And with Rinpoche divination,the baby was born and now a healthy boy.

Whatever shape they are I think importantly we are all sharing this world and therefore need to have mutual respect and not intervene each others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline sharing this interesting post about Bodhidharma, a great master favoured meditation and introduced the Lankavatara Sutra to Chinese Buddhism.

    Here are a few points I have learned from this post:
    1. Bodhidharma had strong imprints of Dharma from the past and therefore he is interested in Buddha’s teachings and show his great wisdom. at a very young age.
    2. His strong guru devotion and determination in learning and spreading the dharma based on meditation though he confronted with difficulties such as Emperor Wu Di was not impressed by his teachings, being ostracized and rejected and lived as a beggar for many months. Notwithstanding, he continued and never give up to practice meditation in complete silence for nine years in cave wall when he was not accepted by Shaolin Monastery at the beginning .
    3. When Bodhidharma was allowed enter to the monastery, he had put a lot of efforts to help the monks in improving their physical body as well as their mind through the meditation. Then, Bodhidharma continued to develop a system of 18 dynamic tension exercises which were printed as Yi Gin Ching (Changing Muscle/Tendon Classic) in 550 CE. It is known as the Luohan (arhat) 18 Hand Movements today which serves as the basis of both Chinese Temple Boxing and the Shaolin Martial Arts.

    Thank you, Grace, for sharing with us the many tips on how to care for and maintain our hair. Personal grooming is important because when we care for our appearance, we are respecting the people who have to deal with us. Caring for our hair, making sure that it is neat and clean should be something we need to take care of since young as it is part of personal grooming. The key is not to be attached to our body and outer-images, that results in spending much time and resources just to make ourselves look good.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful and significant photos showed that Kechara Pastors’ tireless efforts to bring dharma to many others and do the blessings whenever is necessary.

    Basically, the pastorship role was conceptualized by our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. Kechara Pastors are fully dedicated and selflessly serving others especially in spiritual growth and therefore this is good for us to support the Pastors so that they can focus and spend more of their time and effort to serve others and most importantly Buddhist teachings can be spread and shared to many others. The supports to Pastors including food, lodging, transportation, items necessary for their work, such as ritual items or spiritual gifts for those in need and many others. (If you are interested to know more about Kechara Pastors, please have a good read at http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/support-the-kechara-pastors.html)

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee for your sharing your thoughts and review about the book “Be Happy” written by Rinpoche. It is indeed not easy to be happy as we all have various expectation in every situation and people.

    We may think having a big house, lots of cash and good career is happiness but this is the wrong perception. Being happy is not about material and everything about ourselves. It is only when we can do more for others and focus out that we gain happiness. I never realised this until I joined Kechara. I think we have such a fixed mindset of what happiness is and when our expectation is not met, we are unhappy.

    Rinpoche has pointed out many ways for us to rectify our thoughts and methods to be happy. Now it is for us to take initiative to change and transform our mind if we want to be happy.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this article.

    Many people do not believe in reincarnation and only relates it to certain religion such as Hinduism and Buddhism. However, there were many instances and signs that proven reincarnation exist. As Buddhist we will believe in reincarnation and karma. It is by understanding that everything has its cause and effect that we should learn to live life in the correct attitude and mindset. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting articles to remind us of karma and the importance of doing dharma practise.

    Always be generous and kind in what ever we could do even its little help.It’s the little things in life that bring the greatest happiness. Its between us and our Buddha ,so we would not bother what the receipient thinks and say of us. What ever was said ,should not deter our motivation to do Dharma work.
    (It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better.)….well said by Rinpoche.

    Thank you Grace for this interesting articles about hair. There are just so much info which we do not know previously. Most of the time we may neglect the details, thinking as long as we clean our hair everyday it is sufficient. But there are so many things we need to know for example types of hair, scalp condition, our environment and our physical condition which may affect our hair. Great tips.

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 a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
