The US has plenty of haunted places and here’s a few…famous hotels have, over time, inspired not only ghosts but also movie directors, and were featured in movies and books.

Here is a list of the most haunted hotels in the US followed by some spooky ghost encounters from the readers of the USA Today.

 

1. The Provincial Hotel, New Orleans

Any time a hospital is converted into a hotel, there may be problems. That is exactly the case with this hotel. It used to be a Confederate hospital during the Civil War, and many of the soldiers that died inside its walls have never left.

One particular solider has a thing for country music! Whenever the radio is turned to classical, the ghost quickly changes it to a country station. And if the guest insists on changing the station back, he’s been known to materialize and frighten them away from the radio.

A woman who was staying at the hotel to watch the St. Charles Avenue Mardi Gras Parades returned to her room from the late night festivities. She told a staff member that something unseen grabbed her hand, pulled her from the bed and quickly dragged her across the room. She felt like it was trying to pull her inside the wall. People say they have walked into its rooms and saw wounded soldiers writhing in pain and moaning, then disappearing when the lights are turned on. It is said that blood stains appear and disappear on bedding and floors. Soft moans are heard throughout the building. A security guard entered an elevator and, when its doors opened, saw a hospital room filled with wounded soldiers and nurses tending them…

 

 

2. Myrtles Plantation, St Francisville, Louisiana

This is known as “One of America’s most haunted.” The plantation is supposedly home to at least 12 ghosts. Rumors say it was built atop an ancient Indian burial ground. Possibly the most well known of the Myrtles supposed ghosts, Chloe, was reportedly a slave owned by Clark and Sara Woodruff.

According to one story, Clark Woodruff had pressured or forced Chloe into being his mistress. Other versions of the legend have Chloe listening in at keyholes to learn more of Clark Woodruff’s business dealings or for other purposes. After being caught, one of her ears was cut off, and she wore a green turban to hide it. Chloe supposedly baked a birthday cake containing extract of boiled oleander leaves, which are extremely poisonous.

The various legends diverge as to why she did this. A house maid who was getting the favor of the mistress was a suspect with some saying she was getting revenge on the Woodruffsand some saying she was attempting to redeem her position by curing the family of the poisoning. According to the legends, her plan backfired. Only Sara and her two daughters ate cake, and all died from the poison. Chloe was then supposedly hanged by the other slaves, and thrown into the Mississippi River, either as punishment or to escape punishment by Clark Woodruff for harboring her.

A mirror located in the house supposedly holds the spirits of Sara Woodruff and her two children. According to custom, mirrors are covered after a death, but legend says that after the poisoning of the Woodruffs, this particular mirror was overlooked. The uncovered mirror reportedly trapped the spirits of Sara and her children, who are occasionally seen or leave handprints in the mirror. Regardless of the factual accuracy of the Chloe story, some believe a woman wearing a green turban haunts the plantation.

 

 

3. Hotel del Coronado, San Diego

Ghostly tales abound about this hotel. The most well-known legend is that of Kate Morgan, who checked into the hotel in 1892 to meet her estranged husband. He never showed up, and days later she was found dead on the beach from a gunshot wound. Some believe her spirit still haunts the hotel, and there have been numerous reports of noises, odd breezes and sightings of ghosts.

When it opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world and the first to use electrical lighting. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities throughout the years. When President Ford visited, one of his Secret Service agents complained of odd noises. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books.

4. Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado

If you are a Stephen King fan, request room 217. That’s where he got the inspiration and wrote half of “The Shining.” Room 418 gets the most reports of haunting activity, apparently from children’s spirits.

In fact, the entire fourth floor (formerly the servants quarters) is quite active. Often, the sound of children playing can be heard, even when no children are present. Cleaning crews report having heard many strange noises from the room, as well as seeing impressions on the bed when the room was empty. When guests stay in the room, they often report that they hear children playing in the hallway at night. One couple reportedly checked out of the hotel very early in the morning, complaining that the children in the hallway kept them up all night. However, there were no children booked in the hotel at the time.

Another ghost is in room 407, which is said to sometimes be occupied by Lord Dunraven, who owned the land prior to F.O. Stanley. Reportedly, he likes to stand in the corner of the room near the bathroom door. The Stanley Hotel’s original owners, F.O. and Flora Stanley, are said to haunt the hotel as well. Mr Stanley plays the piano in the music room, and frequents the billiards room and the lobby.

5. Le Pavilion, New Orleans

This haunted hotel in downtown New Orleans hired paranormal investigators, who identified four separate ghosts in the hotel. A teenage girl named Ada (or Ava) is said to have been spotted, looking lost and confused. The girl was reportedly set to board a ship when she was struck by a carriage and killed. She is believed to have lived during the 1840s. Sometimes guests see her ghostly spirit manifest in her old room on the third floor, asking for a ride to the docks.

An aristocratic couple has also been seen strolling the grounds. They appear to be from the 1920s. His former room on the fourth floor often smells like the cigars he smoked, even when nobody has been inside, and the girl’s former room on the third floor often smells like her rose perfume. A young man, also appearing to be from the 1920s, has been reported playing pranks on the hotel cleaning staff. He wears bell bottoms and walks shoeless through the halls; he likes to rip the sheets off the bed and move things around people’s rooms. The four haunting ghosts have been the subject of over 100 catalogued sightings and incidents.

 

 

6. Heathman Hotel, Portland, Oregon

Legend has it that not long after the hotel opened in 1927, a woman jumped out of the window of her 703 room. Now, that woman is haunting all of the rooms that she passed on her way down to the pavement.

Guests staying in any room that ends in an “03” report hearing noises, objects moving on their own, cold spots, and in the case of room 703, a ghostly face peering out of the corner of the room. A guest in room 703 said he could hear heavy breathing while he was in bed and felt the sheets wrap around him so tightly that he couldn’t move. He panicked and tried to get out of bed, but was trapped by the bedclothes. The breathing grew louder and came nearer.

Finally, the guest managed to escape from the sheets. He turned on the light and saw both of his heavy suitcases fly across the room toward him. A dark shadow of a man fled into the closet. The guest thought someone broke into his room. Security arrived and investigated the closet. No one was there.

 

 

7. The Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The resident ghost is focused on one particular guest room. Dr. William P. Jacocks was a physician for the International Health Division of the Rockefeller Foundation. The doctor retired and lived at the Inn from 1948 until 1965, which was the year he died.

The doctor was a kind, gentle man with a fun loving sense of humor. That is why his ghost seems to enjoy teasing guests who occupy his third floor room. Guests who stay in the doctor’s room sometimes find themselves locked out of their accommodations. A couple returned to the room and found that their electronic keys wouldn’t work. The hotel maintenance workers were unable to unlock the door. The workers had to climb a ladder and crawl through the window. There was one instance when the door to the room had to be taken off its hinges because it could not be unlocked.

In 2002, a team of professional ghost hunters was brought in to investigate these events. The ghost hunters set up supersensitive equipment and monitored three guest rooms for four hours. The paranormal phenomena researchers set up ultra sensitive microphones, digital cameras, infrared video cameras and electromagnetic sensors. Over the four hour investigation, the sounds of footsteps were captured in an empty room. An orb-like object was captured moving through the air. Sounds of a piano playing were heard when there were no pianos nearby. Some softly spoken words were also heard.

Many people believe there are at least twenty ghosts residing in the haunted hotel.

8. Sagamore Hotel, Bolton Landing, New York

This hotel is home to several spirits, including a little boy on the golf course, a couple in the dining room and a mysterious lady in white. Back in the 1950s there was a little boy who worked on the golf course collecting golf balls. The nearby golf shop gave him money for every ball he collected. One day the boy was running after a ball that landed on the road, when he got hit by a car and was killed. His ghost now haunts the golf course and plays pranks on golfers. He has even been known to steal guests’ golf balls and can be heard laughing loudly while they search for them. Then, when they finally give up searching, he throws the balls to them from behind a tree.

A ghostly couple haunts the hotel restaurant. They descend from the 2nd floor and take a seat in the restaurant’s reception room before vanishing. The staff says this couple was among the first guests of the hotel in the 1880s. The dining area was visited by an apparition of a tall woman with flowing sandy blond hair wearing white evening attire. The woman mumbled something to the cook and when he turned to look at her, she walked toward him and then passed straight through him and disappeared. The cook quit abruptly and never returned.

One night, a hotel employee stepped into an empty elevator and pressed the elevator button. Her elbow bumped into something invisible. Suddenly a fat man materialized right behind her. He had a mustache and was dressed in a fine 3-piece brown suit. Just then, the elevator stopped and the doors opened. The fat man brushed past the startled employee, took three steps out of the elevator and abruptly vanished.

 

 

9. Crescent Hotel, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Room 218 is the spot where Michael, an Irish stonemason, landed when he fell from the hotel’s roof during construction. His ghost is said to bang on the walls and turn the lights and television on and off. Rooms 202 and 424 are also said to be haunted.

Outside of the Recreation Room, the ghost of Dr. Norman Baker often appears, looking a bit confused. He ran a controversial hospital and health resort in the building during the 1930s.

A nurse, dressed in a white uniform, has been seen on the third floor. A woman in Room 419 introduces herself as a cancer patient to guests and housekeepers then vanishes.

 

 

10. Ramada Plaza Hotel, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

This hotel was built in 1923 in an interesting spot: the underground tunnels used by Chicago gangsters to make their escapes ended in the hotel’s basement. The hotel’s numerous unexplained phenomenon have been well-documented by the staff.

In 2001, a guest and several housekeepers heard a man screaming on the seventh floor. A maintenance employee named Bill rushed to Room 717, where he heard, “Help me!” and saw the door moving outward, as if it was being kicked, hard, from the inside. The front desk told Bill no one was supposed to be in the room; the female guest had checked out hours before. Suddenly, all was quiet. Inside, Bill found an empty room. There were no marks on the door, as he expected from the banging.

In the ballroom, the chandelier inexplicably shakes and sways. One employee who heard a noise late one night saw a couple dancing. Glasses in the hotel bar fall and shatter, lights turn on and off, unassisted. Green orbs and vaporous clouds have been known to drift through the ballroom and banquet facilities, and televisions have the irritating habit of turning on by themselves.

The staff’s code name for the ghosts who are responsible for the strange happenings at the hotel is “Walter,” after the original owner of the hotel, businessman and philanthropist Walter Schroeder. Some of the more famous figures of the 20th-century were the guests of this hotel, including John F. Kennedy and Eleanor Roosevelt.

11. Queen Mary Hotel, Long Beach, California

This former cruise ship turned hotel celebrates its haunted past with special events, tours, and an “experience” that recreates some of the scarier moments in its history. When in service, the ship was involved in one tragedy (when it crashed into another boat and killed people on that boat). Oddly enough, it has experienced more tragedies since being permanently docked in Long Beach.

Most of the hauntings take place at the pool. A young girl who drowned in the second class pool now haunts the first class pool. She’s accompanied by another woman who was murdered in the first class women’s changing room. Together, they walk around the pool, leaving wet footprints on the deck and making splashing noises… even when the pool is empty. Some guests have even seen the ghosts of the women wearing bathing suits according to the fashion of the time in which they died.

USA Today readers’ stories

 

Greg Wroblewski, Consultant, McMinnville:

He was asleep at a hotel in Dayton, Ohio, in 1999 or early 2000 when he “felt someone or something” walk across the end of the bed. “It was so real it brought me to a full sitting position with my heart pounding; no booze, no drugs, not having a dream. When he told the hotel’s meeting coordinator the next morning about his experience, he found out that the hotel was haunted, and among the rooms the spirits frequented was his room.

 

Sheena Sales, Consultant, Chicago:

Sales was setting up a trade show on the 14th floor of a Dallas hotel in June 2008 when a hotel employee told her the hotel was haunted. A prospective bride killed herself after the groom didn’t show for their wedding at the hotel’s 19th-floor ballroom. The bride’s ghost haunts rooms on that floor. Sales mentioned the story to a friend staying on the 19th floor, and the friend immediately packed her bags and moved into Sales’ eighth-floor room. They shared a king-size bed and were awakened one night when it began shaking. “But it wasn’t the whole bed that was shaking,” she says. “It felt as if someone put one hand between us and the other on the side of me, and was putting pressure on the bed”.

 

Allen Irons, Senior Vice President of Sales, Coppell, Texas:

Castle Liebenstein next to the Rhine River near Kamp-Bornhofen, Germany, is haunted, Irons says. The hotel’s website says all rooms have a view of the Rhine River and a “castle ghost.” He was told the ghost was known to throw items, so he decided to play a trick on his wife. He pretended to be asleep in bed and flipped a coin across the room. “She jumped and then figured it was me, and we had a good chuckle,” Irons says. “The coin landed on the opposite side of the room and rolled to the far corner of the floor.” The next morning, the coin was between the couple on the middle of the bed’s headboard. “Neither she nor I put it there,” he says.

 

Gene Jannotti, Consultant, Garwood, N.J.:

At a B&B in Narragansett, R.I., about 10 years ago, he and three others were told by the owners that a photograph on display revealed a ghost. Later, the four had a hard time opening a room door. The next day he noticed a cell phone message. “The message was a recording of the four of us outside the door trying to get in,” he says. “We were completely baffled as how this could happen and blamed it on the ghost”.

 

Bill Evans, Commercial Program Manager, Fayetteville:

Bill had “a paranormal encounter” in 2005 at a hotel in Brighton, England. Every time he went into the bathroom, a yellow toy duck in the bathtub was in a different position. He says he later heard a crashing noise, and an ironing board fell out of a closet. He awakened in the middle of the night and saw “a black, shadowy figure of a child at the foot of the bed. It did not say anything, and then it was gone after a few seconds. When he was packing before checking out, he put a soap dish in the middle of a king-size bed, and it “went flying across the room”.

 

Deanne Sullivan, Consultant, Stockton, Calif:

Sullivan says she stayed at a hotel in Santa Barbara for much of 2000. One day that summer, she had her room’s television tuned to NBC’s Today show and went into the bathroom to get ready for work. The TV volume got very loud, and she ran out of the bathroom to turn it down. “As I left the bathroom, the huge ceiling light fixture fell onto the tile floor where I had just been standing and smashed,” she says. She later stopped at the front desk and joked that Today show host Matt Lauer had saved her, because the light fixture would have hit her if she hadn’t left the bathroom. She says the clerk told her a ghost was in the room she was in.

 

Leona Davis, Accounts Manager, Peachtree City:

Davis says she “was probably as skeptical as anyone could be before her experience in a hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. After waking at 7 a.m., she walked into a hallway toward a bathroom, and “a man in traditional clothing was standing before me motionless.” She couldn’t speak and thought it was a robber. She reached to turn on the light, and the man disappeared.. “He was dressed in a flattened turban and a long white robe with a bright red shirt or scarf beneath it that went up onto his throat”, Davis says.

 

Tony Kenton, Marketing Director, Graphic Arts Industry, London:

In the late 1980s, he traveled to a trade convention in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. All rooms were booked when he arrived late, so he and his wife were asked to stay at another hotel. Kenton went to sleep but was awakened by “a blood-curdling scream” and his wife grabbing his arm “with all the strength of a 300-pound sumo wrestler.” Kenton says his wife was shaking and pointing, and more scared than he had ever seen. He says he felt “a deep chill” spreading from where his wife was pointing and saw the curtain move. His wife told him that she had seen a man dressed in old-fashioned clothing looking down at them. The couple immediately checked out of the hotel, and the staff asked if anything was wrong. “I said, ‘No, my wife just had a bad dream,’ ” Kenton says. “They looked at each other and said nothing.” He says the bellboy took their bags to their car, then asked, “Did she see him then?” Kenton says he replied, “Who?” The bellboy, Kenton says, “simply turned and walked away.

 

Frances Kermeen, Author Ghostly Encounters, Oceanside, Calif:

Kermeen bought The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, La., in 1980 and lived there for 10 years. She has visited many times since, including last year, and says she’s always experienced paranormal activity. “I brought my new husband last year, and he swore he would never return,” she says. “The place is still as active as ever.” When she lived there, “at least three paranormal activities occurred every week, often daily, sometimes several a day. I used to tell guests that if they stayed three days, they were guaranteed to have some sort of experience, and they always did.” She says she witnessed voices, footsteps, apparitions, a baby crying, beds that “float off the ground,” late-night parties that stopped “upon investigation” and “radical changes in room temperature.” Sometimes, she says, “deep guttural growling that is neither human nor animal” was heard. And, she says, “two little girls, poisoned in 1924, play on the grounds and approach people with chatter.” Many guests, especially children, told her that a large, matronly African-American woman appeared next to their bed, tucked in their covers, and, if needed, pulled up a blanket.

 

Tim Pearson, Partner, Taxi Branding Industry, Minneapolis:

He and his wife were sleeping at a Seattle hotel in August 2007 when someone knocked loudly on the door at 3 a.m. “I go to the peep hole and see a guy in old-fashioned clothing and a hat across the hall, leaning on a door,” Pearson says. He called the front desk, and a hotel employee immediately came to his room. Though the employee had to use the same hallway as anyone outside his room, the employee encountered no one. “The next night, same experience,” Pearson says. When hotel staff arrived, the guy in the old-fashioned clothing had “vanished.” He was told that he wasn’t the first guest to experience sightings and that some staff members had similar experiences.

 

Marti Mayne, Owner, Marketing Company, Yarmouth, Maine:

Mayne is spokeswoman for BedandBreakfast.com, an on-line directory and reservations site for B&Bs that lists information about haunted B&Bs every fall. It listed about 125 B&Bs in 2009 and the list is growing. She says there have been numerous sightings of a ghost at a hotel in Bretton Woods. “The story is told that the countess who once lived there has simply never left,” she says. Mayne encountered a ghost there in 2004. She walked out the front doors and walked down the driveway toward the parking lot. “I heard an ethereal voice saying, “Marti Mayne, Marti Mayne. The voice was loud and sounded like it was coming from the top of the driveway or from a window in the hotel.” Mayne quickly turned around and didn’t see anyone, yet the voice continued to call her name. “Each time I heard it, I’d wheel around to see if I could see who was calling my name, and still no one was there,” she says. “Finally, after about three or four minutes of this, I yelled back, “What?”. Her response stopped her name from being called. She had another encounter a few years ago at an inn in Jackson, where housekeepers see shadows from a ghost who is believed to be Jason, a 22-year-old former fix-it man. From time to time, guests hear hammering from what is believed to be his spirit still hanging around. Mayne was standing in the bar area talking to the owner and suddenly heard hammering noises coming from inside the wall. The owner ignored the hammering. She looked around and saw nothing. “Eventually the hammering became too loud to ignore, and we both just looked at each other,” Mayne says. She asked the owner, “Jason?” He nodded affirmatively.

 

Rob St. Helen, Night Auditor, The Heathman Hotel Portland, Ore. :

St. Helen worked at the hotel for two years and has seen an apparition and “shadow people”. He and another employee opened a meeting room door and saw a male apparition from the waist up behind a podium, he says. They walked toward it, and it disappeared. He says he’s also seen shadow people sitting at a lobby table and walking down a second-floor hallway. St. Helen says guests have checked out because there was “something” in their rooms. Last year he talked to a business traveler who had seen a woman crying in a corner chair in his room.

 

So, every time you are checking at a hotel, wherever that may be, pay attention! You could have an encounter with the unseen world that makes itself visible for you! Try not to get scared too much…in fact some may even enjoy the experience. And most importantly: show compassion for these poor souls.

    Interesting and scary stories been told and experienced by many individual whom they encountered that seem to be spirits or ghost.Everyone experiences ghost sightings differently. These sightings appear to be as unique as the individuals who once inhabited the earth.
    Ghosts can be understood as non-physical consciousness.I do believe it exist but as long as we do not disturb them it would be fine.
    Ghost sighting have been reported for decades in places like in hospitals or hotels where there was dead patients or killing taken placed.Often occur in older buildings with inadequate ventilation and poor air quality. Scientific proof that ghost do exist and are real.
    Those who passed away in accident or of a sudden death, sadly with attachment,not prepared for death ,their souls tends to be round then.
    The stories mentioned above sound scary and i do enjoyed reading all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    This article brings to mind that ghosts really are among the most widely believed paranormal phenomena and most people believe in ghosts because of personal experience; they have either seen or sensed some unexplained presence.

    In fact, we find that most cultures all around the world believe in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. Even Albert Einstein have been taunted to have provided a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts; if energy cannot be created or destroyed but only change form, there is a possibility that our body’s energy can manifest as a ghost when we die. Of course, such theory is widely debated with no conclusive end in sight. Thus, suffice to say that on the flip side, in this day and age, the number of sceptics crank up to a significant number.

    Nonetheless, when it comes to ghost sightings or claims of hauntings, even the non-believers would exercise caution anyway. That is because humans tend to fear the unknown. Such fear stems from our survival instinct to protect the self.

    For me (admittedly a believer in the existence of ghosts), it also then goes to show that the instinct to protect oneself is the more of the issue rather than the object of the ghost. After all, it appears that such ghosts or spirits are not out to get us per se but really are preoccupied by their own attachments which led them to their circumstances in the first place. This is not to say that we can’t be harmed by ghosts as if we have the karma for it to occur, we will be affected by this harm. Thankfully, there are ways to protect oneself and handle such situation. An interesting write up on some of those ways can be found at http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/paranormal-protection.html

    I have encountered similar things like this before.I think it happened about 20 years ago.

    It was a 2 days, 1 night holiday trip to Buntong,Thailand with a group of friends.I remembered that day was the 15th days of CNY(Chap Goh Mei),as most of the hotels were almost fully booked.We went thru hunting for hotels and at last we found one which is non other than 1 to 2 star hotel.When I first checked in,I felt nothing much but when I start checking with the bathroom,I heard strange voices.I thought the voices was from radio which connected from the room.So I went out from the bathroom to search for the button but there is NO switch at all.Before I could inform my room mate about this,she dragged me out for shopping.When we back to the room later,the situation remained so I assumed NOTHING.Strange things happened when we sleep that night.Both of us have difficulty in sleeping.The next day,while we about to check out I went into the bathroom before leaving.I heard the voices said,”you are leaving,better leave..you are not welcome…”(LOL).

    After we left,on our way back home,my friend told me that the room we stayed in was haunted.I believed so,caused I heard there’s about 3 different voices in the bathroom,the voices of 2 male and a woman but they speak mix languages,Cantonese,Mandarin,Hokkien and Siamese,as I recalled back.That night,I can’t sleep well and I have stiff neck the next day where else my friend told me,she hurt somebody blabbering at her ear the whole night til dawn.Both of us suffer little severe body acne due to the sleep.

    When such thing happen to me,I feel nothing but now I recalled back this incident I feel a bit scary even sharing my experience here too (LOL).Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Dear Rinpoche, The Provincial Hotel and the Crescent Hotel looks really creepy even from the outside. even thought the Queen Mary Hotel is haunted, I still thinks that it’s cool that there is a ship hotel where we can look out of the window from the hotel room. What a cool way to enjoy the view. And finally, well spirits are all over the world.

  6. edward ooi on Feb 6, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, all of these ghost story about spirits haunting hotel is very interesting and i feel very bad for peoples that died in the hotels or ship. The saddest of all is the spirits of children playing in the hotel because when they past away they are still are still in a very young age. This means that death is uncertainty and we could die anytime. I will start appreciating my life from now on, if i don’t appreciate my own life after i die i may be reborn as a hell being or spirits or maybe animals. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these stories

  7. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 27, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing stories of haunted hotels here.

    I guess haunting events can happen anywhere – on road, nearby ponds or simply anywhere. I guess it is that if people passed away with deep sorrows or attachments and wanted to linger around at certain areas, their souls will stay there as long as they want.

    If a hotel where we stay in is haunted, it adds more burden onto ourselves as this is the place where we would spend at least 6 hours a day in for a good sleep. When haunting happens during midnight, it is even more helpless for us.

    I know a person who stays near my house (he is a tenant) who will always keep lights in his room on when he sleeps and that he will not turn off his alarm clock (like most of us will do) when it goes off. Rather, he will just let it rings, perhaps until the moment when he really gets out of his bed. He used to be a gangster in the past, the auntie who rents this room to him told me that it may be that he has killed (accidentally or not) someone before and keeping the light on will help to dispel the ghost….I wont know. But this certainly sounds scary.

    THis happened two years agao . For the past few yeras I took a young man who has a form of dwarfism ( called Morquio.), to his cottage, He could not reach the stove and cupbords so I was there and loved the location and all the years we went wher peaceeful and restful. He gave me this yearly vacation at Bear Creek in Ontario Canada on Lake Nippissing. . I thought it strange at the time yet before going a Native Friend of mine told me he didnot like that lake because of a nasty spirit in it. That this spirit ( he even had a name for it) would make a wirl pool like wave that can come up in the shallow lake and take people from their baots.
    .
    I still very much looked forward to this vacation and I went away with my friend. We stayed in another Cottage instead of the one we usually got., The weather was not as nice and the water level down the being the most they’d seen in over 30 years. I got realy depressed, strange I thought, and my body hurt and I just was not interested in mingling with others so stayed allot inside read etc. One day the wind came up so fast as I rushed to close the many windows across the front of the cottage where the direction of the wind came off the lake, and heard my bedroom window smash, even thought it was at the back and one of the two bedrooms. . I had placed some carbaord until someone baorded it up the next day , I had strange dreams and nightmares of stabbings killing etc.

    When the week endedI was rather glad to be home with my hsuband safe and sound LOL. yet the dreams continued, The dreadfull feeling too!

    My husband and I had to go to a funeral , my husbands best friends, Dad passed on and afterwards went to the reception sharimng some food and comraderie support, and this friend’s wife, asked me if I knew about the person who drowned at Bear Creek, the very place we stayed wth it happening the week before I was there. She told me the story of a young father, plucked right out of his baot leaving his wife and kids safely behind. and that he drowned. Then I saw him in my minds eye. He was so angry that he’d been taken and everytime I asked him to go off to heaven and wrapping him in Gold he yell nooooo! my love ones are here. I could not deal with his pain and anguish to the point I ould not creatively think of another thing to appeal to him with , I truly felt his love for his love ones here so important to him, and he could ot tink of the ones already crossed over. Perhaps his histeria I felt was the fact he truly didot know he had died It felt like total fear.

    I went to a friend , She sells Tibetan Insence ( which I now carry this product in my own business ) After, telling her this story and my continued depressed feelings and a nightmare one of which really got to me and that was seeing myself stabbing my beloved Dog ah! that was just so up setting for me,it lingered far after the experience .

    She says ” Oh! did smething follow you home from vacation?”. So I bought some insence heavy purge. daytime and night time The biig guns so to speak, naw not really 🙂 it is suppose to liberate those suffering souls.

    However as I drive on my way home after buying some insence, I asked him to go into the light I saw him in a white shirt now. I told him yes his family is here and well and that oneday he’d be with them again and to think also of those gone already , that there was nothing now he can do about this that he has passed over and I am so sorry about that , any he smiled and waved good Bye, The feelings lifted and I never saw him again. Yet I was happy I could help in this way, through grace.

    I just told this story to a friend just last week . She knows about seeing spirits allot more than I . After the story she held her head in her hands as someone she knew of was stabbed many many times to death just across the lake from Bear Creek perhaps a few months eearlier from when when this young man drowned. I was vacationing there the end of July 2010.. Thanks for the oportunity to share this experiece Blessings Sheilagh Mercer.

    Ancient civilisation had something very peculiar that is lost today, which is the elongated skull. Modern science today sometimes dismisses the phenomenon of elongated skulls that appeared across many civilisations as cranial deformation. But are they? This video presented many sound reasons that the elongated skulls are in fact alien beings who came to earth, imparted humans with knowledge and possibly stayed and made a family here. For sure, humans are not the only civilization in this whole universe, because it does not make sense that only planet earth can provide for living beings, and nowhere else. At some point in time, alien beings who are more advanced could have landed and left some behind. It is therefore not abstract to believe that part of our ancestry and the way we live today are heritage of alien civilization.

    Our ancestors definitely had better intelligence and wisdom than we give them credit for. They are not as “primitive” as we had defined them, even by our standards. This video is evidence that ancient technology is capable of advance flying mechanics, building technology as well as food science. Unfortunately, history did not have these chapters captured clearly, resulting in a lack of compelling proof that it was the result of human engineering. It could therefore be knowledge imparted by foreign intelligence beings.

    Because people centuries or decades ago cannot fathom the intelligence of these ancient creations, they conveniently labelled them something else, for example the flying machine had been categorised as bird, the fighter jet as bugs, so on. Legends and myths could therefore be based on something real too, the battles in the sky with fire spilling weapons could be a reality in the distanced past. How interesting! It would be truly amazing to see a modern version of the magic carpet!

    By the way, it’s quite noticeable that the modern gliders possess wings much longer that the ancient flying machine. Did I miss the answer? lol

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching and reminder. We always think we have so much time and concentrate so much in making our body look good and using it to generate wealth which in the end didn’t bring us anything happiness that can last long. We should in fact use our temporary body to work on bringing benefit on others and to generate more merits that can help ourselves and others. Hence we should do more dharma and not waste our time on unnecessary things that will attract us into more worldly actions.

    The title ‘Great Scholar’ of India is truly appropriate for Professor Lokesh Chandra. His collection of work is marvellous and very beneficial to any student of Buddhism or spiritual aspirant! From his work, it is evident that Professor Lakesh has deep expertise in language with unequivocal understanding of the Buddhist text as well as superior knowledge of Buddhist iconography. I am at awe! I certainly look forward to reading some of Professor’s work. Thank you for this wonderful sharing, Rinpoche, Joy.

    Stunning…… this very famous Vajrayogini – Ugra Tara temple situated in Sankhu, Kathmandu, Nepal full of history, legends and culture . This temple seem to have the greatest power of blessings for everyone who visited and seeing it. Vajrayogini is a Hindu goddess of knowledge and wisdom and for the Buddhist is also known as Ugra Tara . This temple was built dedicated to the goddess Vajrayogini ,has attracted thousands of pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Sankhu is one of the sacred power places of Vajrayogini in Nepal . I do hope I can visit this beautiful sacred temple one day. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing with us.

    Wow …having the Chinese New Year and the Tibetan New Year same day . That’s wonderful, auspicious and rare whereby everyone will be enjoying at the same time. Dorje Shugden’s precious advice during Lunar New Year 2018 is indeed timely. However small or big deeds is still very virtuous as long as we put in our best with a good motivation and a pure mind. All of us are fortunate to have met Rinpoche through kechara and have learned ,practiced Dharma. Without Rinpoche there is no Dharma…….we are indeed grateful . I am glad to have made the right choice to choose what i want to learn and practice .Having this precious advice from our powerful Protector Dorje Shugden is a blessing. May our compassionate Guru stays healthy and live long to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefits all the sentient beings. May more and more people benefits from this precious advice and Dorje Shugden protections.
    Thank you Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche for this powerful advice which I will bear in mind and had it bookmarked .

    Life is made up of choices. I believe life is just a series of decisions we make, and depending on our choice, we have to live with the consequences of our choices. We are responsible for our own lives, and being accountable for whatever decisions we’ve made we can change our lives for the better. The choices we make, however, determine our happiness or our unhappiness. I did not realise much earlier but reading this profound teachings has taught me many and a wake up call for me.
    “What you are today, is the choice you made yesterday……as said by Tsem Rinpoche

    It is true all the emotions comes from our mind. Most of the time we tend to see a problem to be so big which we can actually have a choice to dilute it and make it smaller. We always have our expectation on everything and once it goes against ours, we are not happy and anger arise. Therefore we should control our mind and not let it direct us to think and act negatively.

    Thank you for sharing the updates on Buddhist community from Tibet and elsewhere. All these grand and meaningful events around the world since 2011 up until 2018 are now accessible to everyone, which was previously not made widely available. It goes to show that more and more people care and are interested about the news and movements of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly Dorje Shugden events. These events also dispel the myths that DS is a minor sect – check out the crowds! Massive numbers of sangha and lay people turn up at these events for the blessing and initiation to DS Sogtae. These events are evidence that religious freedom is enshrined in Tibet, China and other parts of the world; seems like the only place where there is no religious freedom for DS practitioners are under the rule of Dharamsala. Therefore, events updates of DS practitioners gathered together to receive initiation and teachings are really very encouraging. Rejoice to all who received the sogtae!

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Can imagine the situation ,the pain and suffering of that poor pig. They the many of these sows live in cages just large enough to contain their bodies. Sows have a pregnancy lasting around four months and their freedom of movement are restricted .Sad to see that situation ,hoping more can be done to improve it. But the best choice is go on vegetarian so less killing , less consuming meat.

    Happiness , depression, anger, frustration, bitterness is a choice. All is based on how we interpreting each situation in our life and the meaning we associate with. To feel happy, focus on things in our life that will make us feel happy. What ever we see and thinks can lead to thoughts and influences our performance. It is our emotions that influence the way we think and behave We are to accept and the ability to adapt to the challenges of our daily life. A powerful meaning behind this short story. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and powerful post that will helps us in our daily life.

    Wow…. a brilliant picture of the two greatest masters of Tibetan Buddhism. Trijang Rinpoche was a Gelugpa monk and the 16th Karmapa, a Karma Kagyu, enjoying a beautiful relationship based on respect and trust. There were no conflict between them. It seem that in one lifetime, both of them did even interchange incarnations. There is an interesting story regarding both of them. Both enlightened manifesting again and again for the benefit of others .From the picture it tell us a thousands word of wisdom between both of them. H.H. the 16th Karmapa and H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche remained close friends throughout their life. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this a brilliant picture of the two greatest masters for us and merely seeing it is a blessing.

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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website. You can read it here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149806

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
