Around August 2013, the Board of Directors in Kechara presented me 800 White Tara statues to request for my long life. I was very touched by such a wonderful and sincere offering from my students, as I knew it must not be easy to arrange for 800 statues and on top of that, have it all painted by our own in-house artists! All statues were also made in-house within Kechara! So I accepted the offering and told Beng Kooi, one of my Changtsos… instead of keeping these statues in the ladrang or in Kechara Paradise, I would like to offer these statues to the monks in Shar Gaden Monastery as it would be more beneficial that way.

A few months back, Beng Kooi arranged for these statues to be safely shipped to India, and also arranged for 29 pilgrims to join the pilgrimage to Gaden Monastery so they may be part of the offering ceremony on my behalf. Beng Kooi is truly a wonderful and sincere person, she works so hard and expects nothing in return and very trustworthy with her work. I was wondering why Beng Kooi was rushing to offer the statues to the monastery early October 2014, and she told me it was because she wanted to make the offerings before my 49th Birthday which is my obstacle year… she hopes by making these offerings, it would clear some of the obstacles to my long life… I thought how thoughtful and auspicious.

So, in early October 2014, Beng Kooi and her team of 5 people, along with 29 pilgrims flew to India to make the statue offerings to the monks of Monastery. For many that went to India this time around, it was their first experience travelling to a monastic setting. I’m glad that they have the merits to make this pilgrimage as they met with many high lamas and many old, holy monks… holy because they held their vows perfectly for the past 60, 70 years or so. Our pilgrims did many other virtuous actions while they were in the monastery, such as making offerings and meeting with many high lamas, which I will blog about it another time. I have been making offerings and supporting this monastery for over 7 years now along with a few other monasteries and large lama ladrangs. Prior to Shar Gaden I have been supporting and donating to Gaden Monastery for nearly 27 years now. I know most of the senior monks as they are my friends as I’ve known them for over 27 years and you don’t just forget friends even if they number in the hundreds. Hundreds of them are my dharma brothers or monk brothers. I miss many of them very much. I attended many activities with them back in Gaden. We all were in Gaden today in our much younger days before I was sent to Malaysia. Many of the senior monks who are my friends sent warm greetings to me. I’ve had to make much and many donations over the past 7 years to Shar Gaden Monastery. For whatever thoughts may arise, they are monks and deserve to be supported.

Below is a short write up on the highlight of the pilgrimage, which is the offerings of the White Tara statues, robes, books, food, drinks and along with it, many wonderful and beautiful pictures of the pilgrims making offerings to the monks. Do take a look at the wonderful pictures and if you have never been to pilgrimages, or even if you have been for pilgrimages… rejoice and make a strong motivation that you too may have the merits to make pilgrimages in the near future.

Making Offerings to Gaden Monastery

[Written by the blog team]

Making offerings to the monastery and Sangha is well practiced in all traditions of Buddhism as it is known to be a meritorious act. It is something that we should do either on a daily basis such as simple food offering to the Sangha, which is the common practice of Thai lay Theravada practitioners who offer danna (food) to the monks, or on a larger scale, to sponsor the construction of prayer halls, temple buildings, statues and robes to the monastery. Understanding this method of accumulating vast amounts of merits, the Board of Directors of Kechara would make major offerings to the monasteries, once in every few years; in dedication to the good health and long life of our Spiritual Director, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, and to offer support to the monks in the Monastery.

On 11th October 2014, a group of 35 pilgrims made a complete set of offerings to the Sangha members of Gaden Monastery during their 4 day pilgrimage to the Monastery. During the morning puja, which lasted from 6 am until 12 noon, the monks recited the Namgyal Tsechog Puja (Long Life Puja) in dedication to the long life and good health of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. A total of 800 sets of offerings were prepared for the 800 monks in the monastery. Each set of offering consisted of a photo of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, an 8″ White Tara statue with gold face painting, a dharma book, a set of robes, a red packet (a monetary gift) and also sewing fees for the monks to send their robes to the tailor. Additionally, the group also sponsored breakfast to the whole monastery that morning. We purchased the comics on line and had it shipped and offered. Luckily the comics were done in time as the organization in charge were friendly and helpful. The comics are a history of the holy protector that has been very well produced by another group online.

For many of the pilgrims, it was their first visit to a holy site like the Monastery. The journey was made  “extra special” because they could make such elaborate offerings to the monks, which is a rare and precious opportunity to amass vast amounts of merits. The act of giving also develops within us the virtue of generosity, which is the direct antidote to miserliness and counter to overcome attachments, which is a source of our suffering within samsara. We hope that through these virtuous activities, we create the cause for the works of the Monastery and their monks to prosper and for the great teachers to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit many. We also pray for His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to have a long and stable life, and may all of Rinpoche’s Dharmic aspirations materialize.

Attached below are some pictures from the offering ceremony.

(USD 462,850)  

 

The pilgrims entered the monastery’s gompa respectfully at 6 am before puja

 

Sponsoring Breakfast for All 800 Monks in the Monastery

The monks on duty served breakfast to the rest of the monks in the prayer hall. The ambiance was festive.

Tibetan bread served with butter: a simple but healthy breakfast for the monks

Serving Tibetan Tea: enjoying this traditional recipe of tea preparation is an acquired taste. However, it is wonderful to witness the Tibetan culture is still vibrant within the monastic community here.

The monastery’s Gekula (disciplinarian) announced the sponsor and dedication for the day

 

Offering 800 White Tara Statues

800 White Tara statues offered to the monks in the monastery. Offering statues is an extremely meritorious deed, especially when the receiver are pure and holy monks. With every day the receiver make their prayers, the giver gains much merits as their generosity gave someone else the ability to practice the Dharma.

Unpacking the statues before the pilgrims offered them to the monks

 

Offering 800 Sets of Monk Robes

800 sets of complete monk robes were stacked up outside of the Gompa, waiting to be distributed

The sponsorship of the robes include sewing fees as well as the robes material

Monk robes for the younger children

 

Offering 800 Books to the Monks

800 comics were offered to each of the monks in the monastery. We had to contact another organization for these and they were very friendly and helpful. I wanted to thank them for getting these comics ready in time for the offerings.

The monks were looking forward to the protector comics: taking a sneak peak!

Datuk May making offerings to the 101st Gaden Tripa’s Throne (now being retired is known as H.H. Gaden Trisur Rinpoche’s) in Shar Gaden. His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche was the supreme head of all Gelugpa school of Buddhism until he retired. He is a highly respected scholar, master and teacher.

Mr KH Ng, whom is also Kechara’s Vice President offered a White Tara statue to Khensur Rinpoche on behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

His Eminence Domo Geshe Rinpoche placed His White Tara statue and a picture of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche neatly on his ritual table. This incarnation was found by the current Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and the oracle. Both Trijang Rinpoche and the oracle of the protector separately announced this to be the undisputed incarnation. The previous Domo Geshe was very close to the previous Trijang Rinpoche. He requested Trijang Rinpoche to find his incarnation before passing.

Vinnie Tan offered a set of monk robes to Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche’s throne

Monks are the embodiment of renunciation. When we offer robes to the Sangha, it is symbolic that may we too achieve renunciation from the cyclic rebirth of samsara

Pilgrims received an appreciation gift and khata offering from the disciplinarian and administrators of the monastery

Many of these monks are materially poor, but spiritually rich. They own simple personal altars, sometimes only with pictures of Buddhas. We are glad that we have this opportunity to offer them a beautiful White Tara statue, as the image of the Buddha is the map to Enlightenment

The younger monks also received a complete set of offerings

This young monk, smiling brightly after receiving the offerings from the pilgrims. May these young monks succeed in their studies and graduate as learned Geshes to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma

    Finally, logic prevails. People who can think beyond gross prejudice are beginning to see the goodness of Dorje Shugden. I came across this comment by Suzy on Rinpoche’s YouTube chanel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s) and it is such a welcome change from the usual abuse hurled at Shugden people by those do not understand the issue.

    Rejoice for the the pilgrims and also all Kecharians who are involved in this action.
    It is supremely sublime type of offering to make offerings for the well being and welfare of the monks.

  4. TekLee on Dec 15, 2016 at 12:12 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article and the lovely pictures. It is very meritorious to make offerings to the monks. And it is very inspiring that Rinpoche has been donating to Shar Gaden and many other monasteries. Just like Rinpoche set up Kechara Soup Kitchen, giving to the poor and unfortunate without asking anything in return. This inspire us to do more and to develop our compassion in our spiritual path. We should always make offering to the monks, and practice giving. By giving out, we will get something in return. It’s not materialistically return, but in return of happiness. It’s another happiness that grow from inside 🙂 Thank you again Rinpoche. With folded hands _/\_

    We all know that it is extremely meritorious to make offerings to Sangha. I am indeed happy to see this as well. I hope many will come forward to offer some to the monastery or whichever temple that they chanced upon.These Sangha communities need our support to keep the tradition alive. Most importantly to keep continuing practicing Buddha’s teaching.

  6. Carmen Koo on Dec 5, 2016 at 1:47 am

    I had the honour of being a part of this sacred pilgrimage trip, to make offerings to the holy sangha of Shar Gaden Monastery. Throughout my time in Kechara, I have witnessed Rinpoche sponsoring and supporting many monasteries, sangha and charitable organisations.

    Without the sangha, there will be no Dharma, therefore we have to continuously support the activities of the sangha. Since Buddha Shakyamuni taught the perfect Dharma 2500 years ago, we are fortunate to even be able to hear a drop of the Dharma to date, and it can only be due to the kindness of practitioners, lineage holders, monks, nuns, yogi, teachers, arhats, lamas, because they took the time to learn, practice, and teach it to others, and that has been continuous to date.

    Sangha members, especially the senior monks and nuns, dedicate and spend their lives holding their vows, so they are holy. They spend their lives engaged in virtuous activities, reciting mantras, doing pujas, retreats, spreading the Dharma to others and therefore when we make offerings to the sangha members, it is extremely meritorious.

    Very happy and feel great when I know many Kecharian going pilgrimage and make white Tara statue offering to Shar Gaden monastery monk on behalf of my Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

    Action is always louder than speak. Guru keep supporting Shar Gaden monastery is really show an good example to many Kecharian to do more meritorious deeds to collect merits which is very important in spiritual path.

    Thanks Guru and his assistant Beng Kooi to practice these virtuous actions to benefit more people.

    Beautiful white Tara statues…..Rejoice to the 35 pilgrims who make offerings to the Sangha members of Gaden Monastery on behalf of our Guru Rinpoche Beautiful and precious pictures indeed..its a once life time occasion been able to be there offering many Holy items to those spiritual rich monks. Beautiful quote….which i always remember
    “Do all the good you can,
    By all the means you can,
    In all the ways you can,
    In all the places you can,
    At all the times you can,
    To all the people you can,
    As long as ever you can.”
    by— John Wesley,
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful post.

  9. Justin Cheah on Nov 29, 2016 at 12:21 am

    Wonderful to see these pictures and rejoicing news indeed. The practice of giving without expecting anything in return for me is the supreme practice. What more if one is making offerings to the Buddha and Sangha. Rinpoche has always been a giving person and generosity is one word I often hear from others who spoke highly of Rinpoche. Not only did Rinpoche supported Shar Garden but Rinpoche also supported many monasteries in the pass including Gaden Monastery and is very deeply remembered till today. Rejoicing to see these pictures.

  10. Joy Kam on Nov 28, 2016 at 11:49 pm

    How meritorious this is. Although I could not be there at the time, but I totally rejoice in this great deed because it such an honour to be able to make such extensive offerings to the whole sangha community of a monastery!

    All this is made possible and appreciated due to Rinpoche’s kindness in teaching us the value of making such great offerings. Being in a monastery alone is already a blessing, being able to make offerings to the three jewels there that is alive and living/learning/proliferating the Dharma is beyond a blessing. What a great meritorious act for the whole of Kechara to be able to do this and may we be able to continue doing so in order to gain the merits we need for our own Dharma centre and community to grow even further to benefit more.

    Thank you for this precious picture post and a great rejoicing event!

  11. Lum Kok Luen on Nov 28, 2016 at 11:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful and meritorious act. I have learned so much from these examples that being compassionate, generous, 100% Guru devotion, be loyal in your practice, and always, always think of others is the root of attainments.

    I am also truly humbled by these acts of kindness towards any monastery will generate so a vast amount of merits that is needed to sustain and spread the Dharma and be always connected to the Three Jewels.

    May your Eminence live long, have great health and continuously turn the Wheel of Dharma until the last sentient being is liberated.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

  12. Li Kim on Nov 28, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    It was an exciting moment. I recall waiting anxiously for the statues to arrive. White Tara was most meaningful as I understand she represents long life and good health. And then knowing how awesome it was that Rinpoche would be offering them to the monks. Rinpoche is constantly caring and thinking of others. Seriously, I don’t know anyone else who would freely give to benefit others like Rinpoche. Therefore, it deeply infuriates me and totally irritates me when people go online defaming Rinpoche. And worse are those who leave and then slander the very person who gave them deeper spiritual values away from hedonistic desires. May Rinpoche live long and Kechara grow to great heights.

  13. Bradley Kassian on Nov 28, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    A very meritous act. Through the virtue of the monks upholding their vows and helping sentient beings, the ordained Sangha become a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace.

    When we offer items such as robes to the Sangha, our support for them creates the causes for the Dharma to remain. In making sincere offerings, we also create the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Wow it is incredible to see that Kechara has the means to sponsor so greatly. Not too long ago this would not have been possible but Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings to the students and the persistent work for spreading Dharma has allowed this to happen. The sponsorship money is very important for Kechara to grow as it funds everything which is required to maintain Kechara so that everyone can work to spread the Dharma.

    The Dharma is the most precious thing as it is a pathway to enlightenment and therefore the key to release us from all suffering. Therefore humble amounts of sponsorship that accumulates into a large offering like this, should be gladly and generously. From a personal perspective it is like trading in fake made up currency that is impermanent for non material currency that is very much real as it is the fuel to our Dharma practice, that is merits.

  18. Wan Wai Meng on May 25, 2015 at 12:54 am

    Feels really good to see Kechara making such vast offerings for the growth of the dharma and for the monks who are the lineage holders for Buddhism to have White Tara whose practice promises long life ad removal of obstacles with them.

    May Kechara and Kecharians always be able to generate such wonderful deeds for the preservation and growth of the Buddha Dharma in our region.

  19. Vinnie Tan on Feb 16, 2015 at 11:45 pm

    The experience to the monastery was great. I was so happy and lucky to be part of this group to go for this pilgrimage trip and also offer these holy offerings to the Sangha members of the monastery.

    I really thank Beng Kooi and her team for organising this trip making it possible for the group to go over. I would like to thank Rinpoche for allowing me to join this trip as well. It is just so nice to be doing such meritorious things. To be back in Rinpoche’s home, to be seeing for myself how the Dharma is truly being practiced by these holy monks.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this chance.

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    NOTABLE COMMENT FROM TSEM RINPOCHE

    For me, I have received teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and I still have to respect him as one of my lamas. It might be different for some of you who have not. But my approach must be respectful. Even if I didn’t have teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama, would still approach him in a respectful manner. The advice against Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness is hurting many people in fact millions. It’s creating discord, segregation and pain. Everything the Dalai Lama teaches is about compassion, tolerance and reconciliation and the Shugden practitioners deserve that too. I therefore, respectfully prostrating to the ground would ask H.H. the Dalai Lama to please send his ministers to talk to the leaders of the Shugden group and resolve this issue. I say all this with deepest respects. As a part Tibetan, I also wish His Holiness the best. Long live the Dalai lama. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  23. SG on Feb 5, 2015 at 9:18 am

    Good teachers deserve good disciples and vice versa. Rinpoche is a testimony of this auspiciousness. May buddha’s sangha always thrive in the holy dharma and achieve those great levels of attainments. May suffering be a distant and unrecognisable word for all beings.

  24. tsemtulku on Jan 28, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

  25. Pastor Chia on Jan 25, 2015 at 1:06 pm

    Supporting monastery is always one of the event Kecharian main concern. Since Kechara organization started, through H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche advice,Kechara main concern is always to promote Buddha Dharma growing. Without Monastery and sangha community, Buddha Dharma can’t growth fast.
    over 20 year, H.E. work very hard and raise fund to supporting older sangha who are ill and for their medical check up.Offering robes,sponsor printing Dharma scripture,fund raise for hospital at monastery, so sangha community able to get treatment when they are sick. We wish Kechara always can supporting Buddha Dharma and Sangha.

  26. Denise Kuek on Jan 24, 2015 at 2:18 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful thing done by Kecharians. Because of Rinpoche’s compassion, the monks in Shar Ganden could receive a wonderful painted White Tara statue and for them is not easy to own one. All these photos are very heartwarming, I am so happy to see people especially Kecharians have the chance to offer to monks. The White Tara statues definitely would create merits for the monks and Kecharians. Rinpoche’s kindness will always remind me to be a better person for people around me. I wish for Rinpoche’s long life and Rinpoceh’s Dharma works continue to grow vastly.

  27. Kwan Leng Lew on Jan 24, 2015 at 1:52 am

    It is always god to make offerings to monks as it allow us to collect a lot of merits. what is merits? merits is the fuel for us to advance in our spiritual path, not so much about just getting secular happiness such as big house, big car, etc.

    I rejoice for all the pilgrims who managed to go to the monastery and make the offerings 🙂

  28. Judy Chen on Jan 23, 2015 at 3:33 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It’s so wonderful to know of the generosity of Kecharians and it’s also meritorious.
    It’s a great opportunity to know and learn dharma via your posts.

    With folded hands
    Thank you Rinpoche

  29. Jill Yam on Jan 22, 2015 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.
    Can see all the monks are so happy and excited to receive the comic books and other offerings from this group of Rinpoche’s student who has the opportunity to go on this auspicious pilgrimage.
    Rejoice for all of them.

  30. Shelly Tai on Jan 22, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    Rejoice for all the Kecharian who make offering the the sangha community. As lay person we need to make a lot of offering to the three jewels in order for us to collect merits and we can continue to stay in the path.

  31. Cynthia Ng on Jan 21, 2015 at 11:31 pm

    随喜34位克切拉朝圣团员在Beng Kooi的带领下到印度的Shar Gaden Monastery去供养800尊的白度母佛像给予寺院的高僧喇嘛们。此生有如此的机会到寺院朝圣做供养,亲近高成就转世喇嘛是非常难得的机会,也是各位累积的功德福报。

    非常感谢Beng Kooi有细心的过人之处,为上师詹杜固仁波切的长寿安排了殊胜的朝圣团代表上师到寺院做供养祈求上师长寿,常转法轮利益更多的众生。

    看到800位喇嘛们聚集在寺院做法会是如此的壮观与庄严,能够参与法会是一大福分,能够得到高僧喇嘛们的加持也是殊胜无比。看到每一位僧侣们面前都摆放着詹杜固仁波切的法照更是意义非凡,在每一为僧侣的心中詹杜固仁波切是一位得高望众的转世活佛,仁波切也非常的照顾寺院里的僧人,每一年都会把款项寄发回去做供养以及改善寺院里需要改善的地方,确保每一位僧侣和上师得到完善的照顾。詹杜固仁波切从来没有忘记过寺院里的上师和僧人,这也是仁波切远道马来西亚来弘扬佛法的原因,为了要改善寺院的环境,这样就会有更多的人受益和修持佛法。

    我在此发愿可以再此的参加朝圣团和到寺院去。 🙂

  32. William on Jan 21, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    This is such a nice article to read. I can feel the happiness and the delight the monks are feeling by just going throughout the photos. Pictures does really paint a thousand words. Thank you Rinpoche for the generosity and also other sponsors for making this offering a success. I rejoice for the pilgrims who has had the opportunity to represent Rinpoche in the offering and also visit the monastery.

  33. Grace Leong on Jan 21, 2015 at 7:29 pm

    In order to show our gratitude to the Monastery and the Sangha for their crucial role in maintaining the precious teachings and lineage of Je Tsongkhapa, it is essential that we make offerings and consistently support them in whatever way possible. The teachings and the practice provides tremendous benefits to all sentient beings. Thank you Rinpoche for consistently guiding and showing us the important values and virtues that we should inculcate in our lives !

  34. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 21, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    The 34 pilgrims from Kechara, who went on this sacred trip to the holy monastery of Shar Gaden, must have collected tremendous merits to have been able to go on this pilgrimage. The 800 White Tara statues, offerings by the Kechara Board of Directors for Rinpoche’s long life, show the love and devotion they and Kecharians have for our precious Guru , Tsem Rinpoche. The offerings of the statues and books and robes , in turn, to the holy monks of Shar Gaden reflect a wealth of giving and kindness. Giving to the sangha collects tremendous merits.

    The Pilgrims had the rare and treasured honour of having audience with great Masters, like Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende. It was truly a blessed pilgrimage.

    I have been with Tsem Rinpoche on pilgrimage before to other holy places and temples. The generosity, love and care Rinpoche has unfailingly showered on all, including the monastics, young and old,wherever he goes, are always received with immense gratitude and deep appreciation by all the recipients.

    The Namgyal Tsechog puja for Rinpoche’s life was performed very beautifully by the monks. It is truly blessed to be in the presence of monka, including the more senior ones, who have held their vows purely and practiced Guru Devotion purely for so many years. It is in the hands of the Sangha, who study the Dharma earnestly and then teach them with great skill and compassion, that the Dharma will be preserved and will endure.

    May Tsem Rinpoche have long life and continue to tun the wheel of Dharma to benefit countless beings. May all the sangha continue to uphold their vows and Guru Devotion purely . May the Lineage Teachings of Tsongkhapa continue to be upheld and to grow and spread and be preserved.

  35. KH Ng on Jan 21, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for making this pilgrimage possible for all the pilgrims and for all Kecharians and supporters to make offerings for the long life of Rinpoche. By this meritorious act, we generate vast amount of merits towards our supreme goal and strengthen the samaya between us and Rinpoche.

    All Kecharians and supporters directly and indirectly related to this pilgrimage and all the work put into the preparations before, during and after the pilgrimage benefit from this.

    May Rinpoche life long and continue to turn the Dharma Wheel and the 3 Jewels continue to bless all sentient beings of this age. May Shar Gaden continue to grow to benefit vast many beings.

  36. Bradley Kassian on Jan 21, 2015 at 9:39 am

    I rejoice in all of this gift giving to the Sangha! May the Wheel of Dharma continue to turn! 🙂

  37. aw we ling on Jan 21, 2015 at 7:23 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Feel happy and blessing when I see many wonderful picture here. So happy to see my dharma friends having this great opportunity to this pilgrimage and do make the offering and meeting with many high lamas. Rejoice to them and make a strong motivation that I and my dharma friends may have the merits to make pilgrimages in the near future.

    Thank you Rinpoche and thank you Datuk May, Beng Kooi and her team for organise this trip.

    Love

  38. Frederick Law on Jan 20, 2015 at 11:32 pm

    Rejoice to the group who went to this pilgrimage,such a meritorious deed to be able to make offerings to the Shar Ganden Monk, and also to Khensur Rinpoche and Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

    From the photo can feel the joy and happiness of the monks at receiving the offering, especially when they read the Protector Comic book with focus 🙂 seeing Domo Geshe Rinpoche displaying Tsem Rinpoche show the respect of Domo Geshe Rinpoche had towards Tsem Rinpoche.

    Thank You Beng Kooi for organizing the pilgrimage and offers the 800 White Tara statue to the Sangha at Shar Gaden to create the merits for Rinpoche long life.

  39. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 20, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. It will be so wonderful if one day I have the opportunity to on the pilgrimage trip like this as well. May I have the merit go on the pilgrimage and able to offer the khata and statue to the lamas.

  40. Joy on Jan 20, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    Rejoice in such wonderful meritorious deed! Wow what beautiful pictures and precious offerings we did to the sangha jewels of our pure lineage. Just looking at the pictures made me feel like as though I was also there making the offerings too. Can sense the atmosphere is filled with incense billowing and bleesing abound as everyone is feeling happy as well as gratification for being there to make such precious offerings. And to be able to give them each a Tara statue and protector comic book… wow!

    Can see all the monks are so excited and can’t wait to read the comic book of our beloved protector. How fortunate we are to have this great opportunity, a privilege indeed to be able to give to the sangha like this and all thanks to our kind generous Guru for making this possible! Really really pray I will never be parted from the Buddha Dharma ever.

  41. Ronald on Jan 20, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    Sorry if it’s offensive, but really out of curiosity. May I ask why the books about the protector to be printed out, seems to be Dorje Shugden instead of the Dharmapala Setrap? Is this OKAY?

    • Pastor David Lai on Jan 20, 2015 at 4:18 pm

      Dear Ronald,
      Dorje Shugden and Dharmapala Setrap actually resides within the same mandala and are part of the 2 ‘blazing brothers’. Therefore, they are very close and connected to each other. Not being able to offer to the protector of our lineage is infringing on our religious freedom. Don’t you think? 🙂 🙂 🙂
      P.S. The monks loved the comic books very much.

      • Ronald on Jan 20, 2015 at 7:22 pm

        Dear Pastor David,

        Thank you for the reply. I am just very very curious. Does that mean Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche offer and regard Dorje Shugden as the Dharma Protector equally? Sorry if it sounds rude but I’m just curious to know. If Tsem Rinpoche regard the Dalai Lama is a great master and according to one of Rinpoche’s video saying HH Dalai Lama is accurate and right, and he follows his guidance. Then would it be offering and printing about the another protector D.S. is incorrect? As I know the Dalai Lama has stressed us not to offer this deity. Pastor David, hope you wont be offended by this question.

        Looking forward to your reply.

        Many thanks!

          • Ronald on Jan 21, 2015 at 10:06 am

            Dear Pastor,

            I guess I am kinda confused with the post. And I do recall this written by Tsem Rinpoche, when someone asked Him regarding the practice of D.S.

            I do want to practice Shugden also. Thanks. But I don’t have the courage to practice because of the ban, I might be threatened and hurt. Dalai Lama says there is no ban, but his advice will hurt many people as there are so many fanatical followers who will threaten and hurt those who oppose Dalai Lama. Dalai Lama can stop all this by saying to everyone, don’t hurt Shugden practitioners as they are humans too and they deserve equal rights. But he doesn’t. See what I am saying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1421782837&v=5ZuNNNHC2E0&x-yt-cl=84359240

          • Ronald on Jan 21, 2015 at 10:14 am

            Dear Pastor,

            I guess I’ll stop asking these questions as I do not want to offend anyone. But I thought I bring some thoughts to everyone and how contradictory this might seem. If I write this here, you can think for yourself. I like to stir controversy. I am from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Many thanks!

            When is khecharian traveling to dharma salary to offer a prayer to his holiness the Dalai lama

    • Sarah Yap on Jan 25, 2015 at 8:55 pm

      Dear Ronald,

      Thank you for asking these questions. When we ask questions, that is where we can learn more.

      The issue surrounding Dorje Shugden is actually a rather political one. As a Buddhist practitioner, politics is not my focus. On top of that, since I am a foreigner (which is, I’m not Tibetan), then these Tibetan politics should not be an issue to me. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about politics here since it is not very respectful on Rinpoche’s blog.

      But on a spiritual level, I follow what my teacher teaches. And if my teacher teach us to be harmonious, not to criticize and discriminate people’s belief, then that is my practice. Please understand, that the majority of people in Kechara have NEVER gotten teachings from the Dalai Lama. We respect Him as a great holy master in Buddhism, but we have no spiritual relationship with him. Our spiritual lineage masters are H.H. Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and H.H. Kyabje Zong Dorje Chang… and of course Rinpoche.

      Also I never understood why people make this such a huge issue in the first place. Dharmapalas are here to assist us in our practice… it is a minor practice and on top of that it should be a private practice, as traditionally done. But if there are people that wish to cause problems for us just because of our loyalty to H.H. Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang’s spiritual lineage, then all I can say is that… I will never give up this lineage and will continue practicing no matter what. I will continue to practice the Dharma, and if by a rare case harm would befall me (which I highly doubt since I’m not Tibetan)… then that is their negative karma.

      Hope this answers your question.

    • Choong on Oct 28, 2016 at 11:18 am

      Dear Ronald,

      In case you missed this, HH Dalai Lama has now said that you may practise. May you have success!

  42. Datuk May on Jan 20, 2015 at 3:05 pm

    It is always such a honour and privilege to be able to make offerings to the Sangha, a virtuous group of people who give their lives to preserve and study the 2,600 year old teachings of Shakymuni Buddha in order that in this distracting and degenerating era, we sentient being may still have the opportunity to know and be introduced to the Holy Dharma and Buddhism.

    The trip to Shar Ganden was very joyful for me to know how much dedications been made to have our Lineage preserved to serve us in our life.

    I thank Beng Kooi and her team for organising this trip and Rinpoche for giving us this opportunity for such a meritorious act.

    May the Dharma always touch our lives.

    Every human is unique in their own way. It’s an interesting article to learn about human behaviour and how our mind function. Psychopath is apparently inherent brain. If so I wonder can drugs help them? While psychopath can be good or evil then how can we help those who are evil? I believe we some how we inherited certain behaviour from our previous imprint and therefore portraying it in this life. I guess it about understanding ourselves better, accept and keep transforming to be better.

    Li Gotami is an extraordinary woman with incredible talents. She documented Tibet and Buddhism at the time and space where it remained out of reach to the world at large. Her work left us with valuable books, art and photographs. It was the same period of time when acclaimed contributors to Tibetan Buddhism, like Lama Anagarika, Walter Evans-Went, John Blofeld actively unveiled Tibet from a religion and cultural perspective. Thank you for this informative sharing.

    Is very heart breaking to read about the way the practitioners been treated and sufferings felt by the Tibetan people who lack religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The unfairness, discrimination and so forth since the ban on Dorje Shugden instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA). Despite there is enough evidence showing that there is a ban on Dorje Shugden practice yet many supporters of the Tibetan leadership continue to insist that there is no ban. If there is no ban, why is H.H Dalai Lama imposing rules on Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. Dorje Shugden practitioners are denied medical care, education, services, employment and so forth. Its really sad, they have suffered for too many years, the ban should end for the better furture.
    May H.H. the Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting description of a great Master……….Lama Yeshe by his student Champa Legshe. Lama Yeshe received the teachings of both sutra and tantra from a long line of erudite masters such as Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche to name a few. Through his establishment of Kopan Monastery, in Kathmandu, he started spreading Buddhism among the westerners. Described by his student as humble, down to earth caring and loving teacher, friendly and many goodness of a highly respected attained Lama for his different approach and modern interpretation of Buddhism. From what I understand after reading Champa Legshe description , Lama Yeshe is definitely a great teacher . And Rinpoche has all the qualities and characteristics as Lama Yeshe … caring, loving, jovial, good- humoured, way of teaching Dharma to his students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners are so apparent in those places. And how can the CTA said there is no ban and discrimination? They are creating so much fear among the people which we can clearly see in the videos. Question is being a committed government, they should take care of the welfare of everyone regardless of their belief, race and colours. There should be no discrimination and segregation among the communities. I hope the ban will be lifted and the people in “Little Tibet” can regain their basic human rights that is freedom of religion very soon.

    Great news for Tibet befriending China. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to amend ties between the two countries. China has transformed itself becoming the largest economy in the world in no time. The world economy is rapidly changing, China’s economy will become more significant and will surpass America soon. Many countries in the world is making friend with China. With this meeting Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will benefits both sides. In time may HH Dalai Lama have dialogue with China to solved the controversy on the Dorje Shugden ban for the benefits of the people . Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with China. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered and divided. Its more than a year since the workshops ,nothing has improved. Do hope both countries friendship will continue to pave way for more meetings. May HH Dalai Lama then solve the long controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Even though it’s a old post, which I came across , still it’s a wonderful moment many had invited home this beautiful Setrap statues. Dharmapala Setrap is the enmanation of buddha Amithaba and highly enlightened beings. For 600 years hundreds of thousands of great masters, lamas and practitioners have since relied on Setrap as their principle protector. Rejoice to those who have invited one as family protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this Powerful Dharmapala Setrap to Malaysia.

    Our faith and religion is our choice. We choose what we want to practice . That’s our choice. We should respect each other choice and should not be biased, segregate, discriminate or hurt any one of a different faith to have a better environment to live in. Those who believe in Dorje Shugden should be treated equally and respected as others too. Politics is politics and has nothing to do with religion. Once mixed it s become harmful to another and used by another for political agenda. Tibetan leadership(CTA) should stopped contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has created disharmony and disunity among their communities. There are more than enough evidence to prove that there is no religious freedom or true democracy and discrimination against Shugden people within. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon and they have the freedom and rights to practice freely.

    The Tibetans in exile….. after leaving Tibet does not seem to improve much all these years in India. Since the establishment of the Tibetan leardership nothing was done for the welfare of the Tibetan people. The situation now is still the same as before. More and more Tibetans are speaking up and moving out or back to look for better jobs opportunities else where. The Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners much suffering and hardship ,all these years . It is heartfelt to see situation like these, the Tibetans are being torn apart and divided . Even after 50 years, there is nothing that has changed and the CTA did not amend the ties between the CTA and China. Time has changed for the better everywhere, the CTA must change. Thank you Tibet Lover for your comment, hopefully more people will speak up against the wrong-doings done by CTA . May the Tibetans living in exiles have a peaceful and happy solution solved someday. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon

    All religions emphasis love, compassion and peace. If there are violence imposed, I believe it most probably are the wrong view of the practitioners. Hence it is NOT right to impose violence in the name of moral principle. Having the right understanding is very important to mold a peaceful and harmony world. For a start we as individual have to understand, accept and practise it in our daily life. No point talking and not putting it into action.

    While HH Dalai Lama may has his view about Four Faced Mahakala and Setrap, the Buddhist or non Buddhist practitioners should weigh the comment and learn up about the subject before forming an agreement or disagreement. Mahakala and Setrap are enlightened dharma protectors that have been propitiate by many high lamas, tulkus for few hundred years. It will be strange if one were to say that their belief and practise were actually wrong. Mahakala is the emanation of Manjushri and Setrap is emanation of Buddha Amitabha. So how can both Mahakala and Setrap be wrong.

    Dalai Lama may have state his comment due to certain reason which we may not understand now but ultimately, we should not follow the comment blindly without investigation and debate.

    Came across this old post …..very interesting could not have imagine HH Dalai Lama has lead a prayers at White House. As Christianity is the main religion in US. The US Senate has opened each session with a prayer from various faith, that shows an open fair-minded of US accepting and tolerance in all faiths and religion. World peace can be achieve only that they live together with mutual religious tolerance and respects.

    All religions are basically the same that all religions basically teach the same that’s for sure. They seem to all be saying the same thing in different ways. All religions teach the practice of loving kindness, compassion, caring, respectful and tolerance within each other. HH Dalai Lama spoke powerfully in a keynote address at an interfaith Conference sharing his views on how to tackle global challenges like climate change and corruption. When we observe good faith and justice toward all nations we will live harmoniously and peacefully. Great religious acceptance and tolerance, a very necessary aspect in keeping peace and harmony.

    For Samfoonheei – KABAR BAIK

    Saya telah berpikir bahwa semua perusahaan pinjaman online curang sampai saya bertemu dengan perusahaan pinjaman Suzan yang meminjamkan uang tanpa membayar lebih dulu.

    Nama saya Amisha, saya ingin menggunakan media ini untuk memperingatkan orang-orang yang mencari pinjaman internet di Asia dan di seluruh dunia untuk berhati-hati, karena mereka menipu dan meminjamkan pinjaman palsu di internet.

    Saya ingin membagikan kesaksian saya tentang bagaimana seorang teman membawa saya ke pemberi pinjaman asli, setelah itu saya scammed oleh beberapa kreditor di internet. Saya hampir kehilangan harapan sampai saya bertemu kreditur terpercaya ini bernama perusahaan Suzan investment. Perusahaan suzan meminjamkan pinjaman tanpa jaminan sebesar 600 juta rupiah (Rp600.000.000) dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam tanpa tekanan.

    Saya sangat terkejut dan senang menerima pinjaman saya. Saya berjanji bahwa saya akan berbagi kabar baik sehingga orang bisa mendapatkan pinjaman mudah tanpa stres. Jadi jika Anda memerlukan pinjaman, hubungi mereka melalui email: (Suzaninvestment@gmail.com) Anda tidak akan kecewa mendapatkan pinjaman jika memenuhi persyaratan.

    Anda juga bisa menghubungi saya: (Ammisha1213@gmail.com) jika Anda memerlukan bantuan atau informasi lebih lanjut

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.

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

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.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

(Drepung) Dear friends, In the effort to be creative about something as holy and beneficial as Dorje Shugden, we've come out with these new and realistic depictions. One is Dorje Shugden visiting the Potala Palace and the other is Dorje Shugden arising from Drepung Monastery where he lived in Zimkhang Gangma Ladrang as a high lama. Please enjoy and be blessed. Sincerely, Tsem Rinpoche (High resolution downloads: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/downloads/buddha-images.html )

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

Shugden's practice in Tibet has been strong for four hundred years and is continuing to grow. Happy New Year (Losar) to everyone. May everyone have peace. Sarva Mangalam!

    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.
    7 months ago
    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)
