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

  5. Edward Ooi on Nov 20, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    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.

    Thank you, Rinpoche. We are so blessed to have the statues of Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma here in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. When we prostrate to Buddha Nageshvaraja, it will help us purify heavy negative actions. And Loma Gyonma’s mantra is known for good health, to cure diseases, and to be free from all forms of negativity.

    Dear everyone,

    Here are 10 interesting links for this week to Rinpoche’s blog posts and Vajrasecrets for your reading pleasure and social media sharing.
    P David Lai

    ����������������������

    Rinpoche’s Blog :

    1. Dorje Shugden Wangze for Power and Influence
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-wangze-for-power-and-influence.html

    Dear students and friends, I have previously blogged the complete commentary and prayers for two of Dorje Shugden’s emanations, which are Trakze, the wrathful form and Gyenze, the increase form. Ever since then, I have been receiving many requests for teachings on the other forms of Dorje Shugden. So, it is with great pleasure that I would like to offer you this explanation and commentary to Wangze’s practice, along with a condensed prayer to this form of Dorje Shugden.

    2. Tagpu Pemavajra and Visions from Gaden Heaven
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/tagpu-pemavajra-and-visions-from-gaden-heaven.html

    Dear friends around the world, Yesterday I was inspired to speak on a topic related to the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. I wanted to address one of the reasons why the Tibetan leadership says we cannot engage in this practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, Dorje Shugden is a spirit and when we rely on him, we are actually engaging in spirit practice. In doing so, we break our refuge and monk vows, and are no longer considered a Buddhist. That’s according to the Tibetan leadership.

    3. Kukai Kobo Daishi: The Esoteric Monk of Shingon Buddhism
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/kukai-kobo-daishi-the-esoteric-monk-of-shingon-buddhism.html

    Kukai, also known posthumously as Kobo Daishi, was an influential and beloved figure in Japan. He played an instrumental role in establishing and spreading the Shingon Buddhist doctrine (also known as Shingon Mikkyo), one of the few esoteric forms of Buddhism outside Tibetan Buddhism, which he received from his root guru, Hui Kuo (746-805 CE). Hui Kuo was a close disciple of Amoghavajra (705-774 CE), a renowned 8th Century Indian monk. Kukai himself is considered to be one of the eight patriarchs of Shingon Buddhism.

    4. Helena Roerich: Writer, Philosopher and Peacemaker
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/art-architecture/helena-roerich-writer-philosopher-and-peacemaker.html

    The graceful and talented Russian writer, artist, theosophist, explorer, healer and philosopher, Helena Ivanovna Roerich was born on February 12, 1879. She was the beloved wife of the famous painter, Nicholas Roerich. They were both disciples of Master Morya, the teacher of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (Madame Blavatsky), founder of the Theosophical Society. With the help and collaboration of various teachers from the East, Helena and Nicholas Roerich founded the Agni Yoga Society in New York in the early 20th Century. The Agni Yoga Society advocated the philosophical teachings known as Living Ethics.

    The following 3 articles have lower viewership, do go on comment and share on social media :-

    5. Wonderful Okinawa
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/art-architecture/wonderful-okinawa.html

    When the word ‘Japan’ comes to mind, people will usually think about Hokkaido, Tokyo, or Osaka, as these prefectures are the most popular tourist destinations. Another prefecture that should not be left out on any trip to Japan, one that is distinct from mainland Japan with its similarly ancient culture, different languages, art and distinct cuisine, is Okinawa.

    6. Top Ten Events and Festivals to Visit in Malaysia
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/top-ten-events-and-festivals-to-visit-in-malaysia.html

    Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity is reflected in the country’s packed calendar of events and festivals. Most of these celebrations have religious or cultural origins and many are also designated as either state or national holidays. Celebrated by everyone in the country, the colourful festivities which observe the ethnic traditions and beliefs of the varied backgrounds of the population are what gives Malaysia the label of “Truly Asia” that it is so well known for. The national events and festivals of Malaysia are occasions for family reunions and for joyful community get-togethers. They are world-class examples of how diversity can be inclusive and celebrated. Many of these days of observation follow the lunar calendar, thus the dates they fall on vary from year to year.

    7. A Bentong Series
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/guest-contributors/a-bentong-series.html

    Bentong is a district nestled amongst the mountains and greenery of Western Pahang, Malaysia. It is approximately 80 kilometres northeast of the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, just across the Titiwangsa Mountain range. Visitors can easily reach the town via an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur. Therefore, Bentong is a perfect getaway from bustling city life. Administratively, the Bentong district covers an area of 1831 square kilometres and includes the towns of Bentong, Genting Highlands, Karak, Telemong, Manchis, Sungai Dua and Bukit Tinggi.

    9. BLESSED DZAMBALA TURQUOISE PENDANT (JUNIOR)
    https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dzambala-turquoise-pendant-junior

    The blessed Dzambala turquoise pendant marries the protective, uplifting properties of turquoise with the wealth-granting blessings of Buddha Dzambala. Made with pressed turquoise powder and set in solid 925 silver, this pendant has been blessed by the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden in trance.

    10. GOLD PLATED COPPER OFFERING BOWL SET, 2.6 INCHES

Amazing…what they did, its seem they have been helping animals by looking to their welfare as well., Their vision is a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty. They do amazing work around the world,…….and are creating awareness to everyone and every where in every countries. They helped to repair and installed equipment and launched campaign on disasters preparedness , providing aids to those in the disaster area, to stop bears hunting in South Korea and so forth. Love what they did to help those animals been suffered in the hands of entertainments exploitation .

    What a beautiful sight with 2 different species a piglet and a tiger cub, hugging, playing and enjoying each other together. No one would imagine that yet they did having a good time . Very unusual to see such a case and that behaviour is a learnt and habituated process.
    We can change our behaviour for the better. I do enjoyed watching the video…..so cute both of them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing,

    All birds are fascinating creatures, hummingbird are special small, colourful birds with iridescent feathers. First time coming across these beautiful birds. They are among the smallest of birds, and most specialized nectar-eating birds. Little birds with big appeal. Most of them live in tropical rain forests. These sparkling jewels of summer are easy to love but with much care heavy responsibility of offering them fresh, healthy food and safe, clean feeders. Feeders must be kept clean and free from mold and fungus else these unique birds might develop serious fungus infection. This infection will causes the tiny birds’s tongue to swell and cause a slow suffering death. Proper care and clean is the basic , save them from extinction before its too late.
    Thank you pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing this informative article. Care and love for all sentient beings nor matter how small there are.

    Just over the years we’ve lost an incredible variety of species, like these amazing creatures
    animals that have recently become extinct. I have not seen all these animals before till I read this article. Some of them looks odd in features. Animal extinctions may be caused by natural occurrences such as climatic heating or cooling or changes in sea levels. In more modern times, however, human activity has been to blame. The main cause of modern extinctions could also be like clearing forest , expanding of farming land and so forth.
    The authority concerned must do some thing before the situation getting worse. In no time there will be any of these animals left and seen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and to create awareness of protecting life and the living environment of those extinct animals.

    Wonderful and powerful quotes for us to ponder ,to choose to be a vegetarian.Wow….what a huge difference between those vegetarian childhood having IQ of 109.1, and meat eaters childhood having IQ of 100.9. It show that those people on vegetarian are smarter then.
    Being a vegetarian makes it easier for us to increase our loving kindness and compassion. Do it for the animals. Do it for the environment, and do it for our health.
    In every country in the world, killing human beings is condemned. The Buddhist precept of non-killing extends even further, to include all living beings…….~ Thich Nhat Hanh
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    Wow …..there is such a city in India ,which was a eye opening for me. This Indian city Palitana becomes world’s first vegetarian city . This city a major pilgrimage centre for Jains religion and is known for being the largest cluster of Jain temples.They have take an approached to protect all sentient beings to go on vegetarian lifestyle. More or less a vegan as no eggs. The government has even made illegal of the buying and selling of meat, fish and eggs, and also related jobs or work, such as fishing. And has declared Palitana a meat-free zone prohibiting animal slaughter within the town’s limits.
    Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world and preaches a path of non-violence towards all living beings. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.
    Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet…..quoted by Albert Einstein

    Choose to go on vegetarian ,it’s a healthy and worthy way to live.Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try . I have always been health conscious, I saw sick people with medical problems my whole life and naturally wanted to avoid going down the same path. I try my best to go meatless and have more vege since then. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet. By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. We can save many lives by going on vegetarian. Through reasearher has found that those on vegetarian had a better complexion, healthy, better digestive system and many more benefits to our body in long term.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a informative article , to create awareness so as more and more people will be on vegetarian or at least meatless.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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 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. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

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.

I always like my rooms to smell clean, fresh, woodsy and a bit like the forest. my favorite types of essential oils to burn daily or as an offering to the Buddhas are Juniper, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint and sometimes Rosemary. I like the smell of the forest, woods and wooded areas very much. I\'ve been using essential oils in my rooms for years. I don\'t necessarily purchase the brand you see in the picture as I buy any brand as long as it\'s made naturally. Tsem Rinpoche

In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    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

    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)
