Painting Dzambala and Vajrayogini

As a child and teenager, I use to spend hundreds of hours painting the Buddhas, mountains, caves, forests and meditators in forests… I loved painting them. I connected with them and felt their presence so strongly in my mind, I had to paint them… I use to listen to Simon & Garfunkel or the Beatles while I painted. I always thought I was born too late. I wanted to be a flower child of the 60’s, and have a cause to work towards and be spiritual like the flower children… I use to draw pictures of Buddhas of all sizes to give people to wear or keep as protection. I knew in my mind, having a Buddha was the greatest protection… no one told me, I just believed… I just knew..

Well it’s been 30 years since I painted my last picture. The last time was when I painted a picture of Buddha Vajradhara and it won the painting contest throughout Freehold Township High School in my High school days in New Jersey. There was a contest throughout the whole school and I won first place to my surprise… many in the school never saw a Buddha nevermind Vajradhara Buddha!!  My large painting of Vajradhara was displayed for weeks at the front of the school office for all to see. I was happy as I knew it would bless everyone who saw Vajradhara. Everyone thought it was nice, but they kept asking me who was the Blue man or why is the Buddha blue… hehehe. Imagine a poster size painting of Vajradhara hanging in the middle of a high school with hundreds of kids and staff in middle of a small town in New Jersey??? Hehehe…

Girlie Ooi is a long time and devoted student of mine of over 10 years. She has been single-handedly taking care of her infirmed/aged mom and aunt for over 20 years. She takes care of their every need and it was very beautiful to me. Recently after serving her mother and aunt devotedly for years, the two old ladies passed away peacefully. Girlie was heartbroken. But I wanted Girlie to know she did all that she could and went beyond the call of duty, love and expectation. Thank you Girlie… I like when people care and take care of others very much. I never had the chance to care for my parents or grandparents… too bad for me….

I called Dato’ Ruby to arrange a special lunch at Kechara Oasis’ new branch (lots of private rooms) and invite close friends and relations of Girlie. I wanted to celebrate Girlie’s love, devotion and dedication towards her mother and aunt. Her sacrifice done with love… I wanted to say thank you to Girlie for being such a good daughter and niece. I felt someone had to thank her.

I racked my brains thinking what special gift I can offer her on this special occasion. I had Henry show me all the Dzambala statues in all of our Kechara Paradise outlets. Wonderful staff like Albert sent text pictures of the Dzambalas they had in the outlets which are beautiful, but I decided to paint a Dzambala instead. I am untrained as an artist and never studied for it. I just paint. My paintings are not great, but it’s from my heart.

So the evening before the special lunch I started painting… I had Joy and James helping me with cleaning brushes and mixing paints etc.. and I started around 1 am and completed the next morning around 7 am…I did a prayer to consecrate the painting and had Joy and James go and frame it in time for the lunch. They did a great framing job. It was presented to Girlie and I was told she likes it…

After the Dzambala I decided to paint some abstract Vajra Yoginis and Taras. I did around 7 pieces I think… it was late… At the corner of the painting I composed some thoughts and insights also… and had them framed. They were displayed in Kechara… I don’t know what I want to do with them yet?? Still thinking…

The Special Lunch for Girlie

 

 


An appreciation lunch for Girlie Ooi from me at Kechara Oasis

 



Ms Girlie Ooi, a long time student of mine, has spent most of the past 20+ years taking care of her sick and infirmed aunt and mother. She has sacrificed her own personal space, pursuits, her wishes, and aspirations to take care of these old ladies whom she loves dearly. Recently both the mother and the aunt had passed away comfortably and not alone because of Girlie’s hard work and dedication. I wanted to celebrate Girlie’s immense humanity and taking on her responsibility for decades so well. So I had arranged this special lunch for her with family and friends. I wanted to tell Girlie how much I appreciate what she has done. I send my prayers, my love and my deep respects to her. Tsem Rinpoche

 


Here’s the Dzambala I painted up with James, Joy and Andrew on standby… I finished at 7am. Then Joy and James rushed to get it framed. It has been presented to Ms Girlie Ooi on June 26,2011 during the  lunch arranged in Girlie’s honour at Kechara Oasis… Girlie always quietly does Dzambala retreats a few times a year in her home for nearly ten years now. I rejoice for her. She is a Dzambala devotee…


A wonderful and filial lady to her parents and aunt… I am so proud of her and sincerely respect her. The Dzambala and flowers from my heart to Ms Girlie Ooi.


I recorded a message for Girlie to be played at the lunch… Listening to my audio message for Girlie Ooi and watching video clip of me painting the Dzambala picture.



A happy appreciation lunch at Kechara Oasis for Girlie Ooi.
Lovely people, lovely lunch, lovely Girlie and lovely Dzambala blesses them all..

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    What a wonderful Dzambala painting!!!

    I know Girlie from Kechara Paradise SS2 and she is very helpful.

    Hope that the Dzambala will bless Girlie and wish her dharma practice smooth.

    It is truly rare to come across someone like Girlie with a strong sense of filial piety and devotion to single handedly care for not 1 but 2 aged/infirmed elders. It must have been a long difficult road with much blood, sweat and tears. My hats off to you, Girlie! It is even more rare to have someone appreciating the caregiver of the old and invalid and I am happy for you, Girlie that our precious Guru showed his appreciation with the lovely painting and lunch.

    Wow! Rinpoche’s painting of Dzambala is truly amazing. I have never seen anyone paint as well as Rinpoche. The only person who I can say is comparable is Leonardo Da Vinci. I am saying this as someone who never really appreciated art. Rinpoche’s passion is amazing and when one sees the painting, one can feel how much compassion was put into and can feel the blessings enter the body.

  6. skyong on Nov 17, 2011 at 2:31 am

    I met with Girlie when I bought my mum to visit KP. I spoke to Girlie a few times later, and I could feel she speaks with concern when talking to others. 🙂 Didn’t know that she has such filial dedications to both her mum and aunt. Glad to have met her! 🙂

  7. Elsie Toy on Sep 13, 2011 at 9:24 am

    Dearest Rinpoche

    Thank you very much for sharing his painting of Dzamala and you make it seems so easy. Girlie herself is a Dzambala to me. She gentle soft spoken and always makes me very comfortable being with her and always allows me to massage her and I enjoy doing that too. I never forget her kindness render to me when I am in at Kechara and I look forward to seeing everyone at Kechara next month. Thank you Rinpoche for making all these possible for us. With Much Love and Respect.

  8. KYC on Jul 11, 2011 at 7:58 am

    Girlie looks fierce on the outside but inside she is kind. I wish her all the best in her practice. I also hope Rinpoche will continue painting. I like the abstract paintings a lot.

  9. benji on Jul 9, 2011 at 9:45 am

    Like the other Dharma brothers and sisters, i rejoice in Sister Girlie’s effort. In this age where selfishness permeates the mind of many; especially young people who learn from selfish adults and corrupt leaders, Sister Girlie not only proves that there is still hope, but she is a great example. She is a living example of the spirit of the ’24 Tales of Fillial Piety’ of the Chinese classics ~ a true “jee-cap-see how” daughter and niece!May all be inspired to be grateful to our elders; make sacrifices for the good of others. “kam-sia, kam-sia” Sister Girlie, for blazing the path.

  10. David Lai on Jul 9, 2011 at 4:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for an inspirational blog post of an amazing person. What’s great is that I know Girlie and have seen from time to time she takes her aunt and mum out for dinners in SS2. What a loyal and inspirational person she is! How fortunate that she has met the Dharma and so her great service to her mother and aunt can be dedicated. Over the years, I noticed how Dzambala, her practice have opened her up and made her a much lighter person. She has automatically become a joy to be with wherever she go.

  11. Doreen Teoh on Jul 8, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    To Girlie, I rejoice and I admire your endeavour, patient and sacrifice you have made to take care your mom and aunt till passing. You have shown us that we should show our love and kindness to our parents in their living years and not when they have departed. Thank you, Girlie.

  12. koh hee peng on Jul 8, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Taking good care of her mom and aunt single handedly while working for dharma is really amazing. As people get older, they tend to be sensitve and at times worried about their remaining life i.e. would the children abandon them, etc. Taking care of elderly people means that one has to take care not only the physical well being of the person but also their mental state. The situaton is even more stressful should the person who takes care of the elderly family members is not financially viable. Yet ms girlie ooi is able to do so for 20 years and contribute to dharma at the same time. She is truly my hero. I rejoice for her receiving the sacred Dzambala painting from Rinpoche. My parents are already in their 70s and 60s and their physical and mental health would become vulnerable as the days go by and im I’m the only person in the world as I’m the only son in the family. I hope that i’ll have the courage and strength to live the life as good as ms. Girlie. She is my hero.

    Even though Rinpoche has not painted for almost 30 years yet Rinpoche has not lost the artistic skill and can still draw and paint so well. I was one of the fortunate one who was able to celebrate this special occasion with Girlie in Kechara Oasis and I must say that the painting of Dzambala is beautiful…a painting that comes from the heart.

  14. Mercedes on Jul 8, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,beautiful work for a beautiful cause.Many blessings always!!

  15. tenzin llhamo on Jul 8, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche, I’ve always admire people who can draw. Their talent applied effortlessly without trying hard to make it look good. Was fortunate enough to see Rinpoche’s painting in person at Kechara Oasis when it was presented to Girlie. My daughter loves to draw, cut, design and everything else that has colors… So proud of her…
    Am happy to be able to celebrate Rinpoche’s love for Girlie at Kechara Oasis Viva Home (food was superb) with family and friends. Thank you Rinpoche.

  16. Iulian Istratuca on Jul 8, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Thank you.

  17. Margaretlee on Jul 8, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Seeing Rinpoche painting Dzambala and Vajrayogini so effortlessly and gracefully, reminds me of how I used to struggle during the many painting retreats I was assinged to.

    But I am truely grateful to Rinpoche for opening up this little artistic seed in me, which as it has proved to have brought much happiness, peace, scerenity and stability in my life.

    Painting buddhas and deities can be very adictive, as in my case. I can paint without feeling tired and yarning for sleep. I am very tempted to pick up my paint brushes again and I think I will…..

    Girlie Ooi is surely a very fortunate student to have received this one and only one Dzambala painting from Rinpoche.And indeed she does well deserve it. The esscence of Dzambala practice is actually teaching us to be generous, and Girlie has indeed generously scarficed all these years taking care of her mother and her auntie, without complaints. I salute to her!

    It pains my heart to see this video; I cannot help but think why these people have become devoid of compassion, why have they lost this caring attitude and where have they left this compassion and how did they end up like that? There no immediate answers however deeply I searched.
    It is indeed sad that many have become victims of blasphemous teachings by the less holy people who had been indoctrinating them with teachings that are deemed to be associated with the negatives.
    Hard as it may seems to appear but I believe hope is not lost to reconnect these people again with the right teachers who can instill in them compassion and help them beginning with more tolerance, patience and understanding.

    Tsem Rinpoche: You can hate me all you want. You can send vulgarities, accusations and call me a fake Tibetan and anything else you can think of but I will not give up my lineage, my practice, my guru and my my devotion to Dorje Shugden. My mind is firm. I harm no one and wish no one ill. I send love and prayers to everyone. We have the religious freedom to practice or not practice any religion we like. If another does not agree, it is their right, but they do not have to judge and criticize others who do not agree with them. I experienced so much hatred, backlash, loss of family and friends and my reputation has been pulled down just because I choose Dorje Shuden because of the ban against people who practice Him. But my mind is firm. For the rest of my life I will keep my promise to my guru and practice Dorje Shugden and bring Him to others as much as I can. I know I will be immensely popular if I give up Dorje Shugden and have a few pictures taken with the Tibetan leadership and my works will grow even more, but I have to be real and genuine to my conscience. I have made a promise to my root teacher to practice Dorje Shugden and no one and no temptation will make me change this. You see I am in dharma for dharma reasons and no others reasons. I practice Dorje Shugden for Dharma reasons and no others reasons so I must keep my promise to my teacher. Thank you. ~Tsem Rinpoche

    Very interesting findings. I believe aliens must have been in the earth and therefore the drawing and carving in the early days. I just find it amazing that the paintings are so similar to our description of aliens in movie. This is a strong evidence that there are other living beings other than earth.

    I’m sure this finding will give more leads to scientist to find out more about this mystery beings.

    nsanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. – Albert Einstein. It logical to expect the same unhappy results when we continue to reinforce the negative thinking and actions. If certain things we are doing now is not making us happy, it make sense to try a different approach if we truly want to be happy. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    This write up really make me gain more knowledge on Naga Realm.In Buddhism, compassion to every sentient beings(seen or unseen) is the key element for us to achieve higher attainment.

    Prayers or Puja to be done to appease Naga which we might offended them unintentionally.Besides that, the Puja also appease others beings also.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this informative write up to benefit us.

    It is not acceptable for threatening someone’s life just because of different belief. Religious freedom is basic human rights. No one should be discriminated and segregated because of different religious belief.

    I hope those who throw all the negative words and actions on Dorje Shugden practitioners to first find out the right source and origins of Dorje Shugden before jumping the gun and put all the blame to Rinpoche and even kill him for this.

    How can an enlightened dharma protector and emanation of Manjushri bring harm to the practitioners? Not acceptable.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing about 10 holy sites of China having the Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relic.

    From this post, 2 places stood out to me :
    1. Relics at Tian Tan Big Buddha, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
    2. Relics unearthed below the Leifeng Pagoda

    The 2 places as mentioned above become more famous because of many of the films and televisions’ producers especially from Hong Kong and China like to choose these 2 places as the shooting location. Therefore, the exposure for these 2 places are become more as compared to the others.

    Everyone is encouraged to follow the guidelines from this post to visit these holy places. Through the visit to make offerings and prayers to Buddha’s sacred relics, may everyone be blessed and protected by the Buddha and have the opportunity to plant the karmic seeds to learn and practice dharma in order to achieve the qualities as Buddha.

    随喜Mr Miles Kessler,因为他最终了解到灵修的目标并非追求外在的东西。之前,Mr Miles Kessler 一直以为他利用了这么长时间在合气道(武术之一)包括他自己的训练与教导学生,就是在填埋他的心灵上的那一块。但其实并不是这样。

    后来,当他遇到这位来自缅甸的禅修大师,Sayadaw U Pandita,启发了他并告诉他“当你的心灵上得到安全/保护,你是不需要利用武术来保护自己”。Mr Miles Kessler才了解原来灵修的目标并非追求外在的一切,就比如他喜欢的合气道。他明白如果继续执著于合气道(武术),将会阻止他领悟心灵上更深层次的价值。而这位禅修大师Sayadaw U Pandita,就是在帮助他纠正之前所产生错误的想法。Mr Miles Kessler认为这是一个艰苦的经历。但也因为这样却能改变他对合气道的执著心甚至改变他整个人生的方向。因为他选择放下“自我”也就是他一直引以为荣和认为合气道的重要性,然后选择了拥有2,500 年之久的佛学智慧与真理。

    感谢仁波切分享这篇激励性的博文。我个人非常喜欢这篇博文,希望会有更多人可以从这篇博文里的得到一些启发。

    I have finally set my eyes on the ever alluring Mother Tara on August 27th, this inner feelings of meeting Mother Tara for the first time at Kechara Forest Retreat was something magical hard to describe in words. The feeling is like floating in the midst of a realm where time stood still, her gentle sweet smile, her majestic face radiates a sense of peacefulness that soften and energies every cell in my body. The lush green surrounding, cascading water fountain mingling with birds chirping away, the gentle hill breeze soothes my being and elevates one to a timeless long forgotten era of peace.
    O, Mother Tara I prostrate with folded hands in front of my heart wishing that you would continually bless all at Kechara Forest Retreat and all who have the affinity to meet you and be blessed by your compassionate and loving care.

    People always said dog is the best friend of human beings. It was a heartbreaking story. My eyes getting red after read the letter. How can a person who did hand fed to raised up the doggie but finally become a person who throws doggie intothe dumpster.

    Suffering of animals can’t be voice out by them.Why people keep causing animals in suffering?Social media jobs must be done to create public awareness regarding animal abandon.

    We must respect all sentient beings and create a harmony and peaceful living environment.

    Thanks My Guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for sharing. I will keep sharing on compassion to animals.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this story and present it in an interesting comic.

    From this story I have learnt to:

    1) Respect all living beings be it alive or dead. Do not abuse or torture them.

    2) Protector mantra is very powerful and have full trust it the practise. It will clear our obstacles and interference of evil spirits.

    We are so fortunate to be able to learn the practise of Setrap from Rinpoche in Kechara. Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous teaching.

    “Some people want a guru in a feel good factor. Meaning they do prayers, learn a little dharma, volunteer as and when they make themselves free. But the minute the Guru points out to them according to the dharma attitudes that should be transformed to create less problems for themselves and those around them, they run. Or protest not to judge them. Some really join a Guru to learn the dharma and transform. If you see a therapist and only listen to what you should do to improve your situation and never apply it, you’ve wasted your money for the sessions. Similar to this example, mindless surrender to the Guru is not what your after, but surrendering the ego/wrong pride to see a perhaps better way is the point of learning dharma with a Guru. Being open and applying a new way of thinking and acting can surprise you to work much better. That is the purpose of Buddha’s teachings from a Guru.” ~ Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche and Mr. Kessler for sharing this very inspiring event that made Mr. Kessler rethink and reevaluate his life’s destination. His notion that Aikido is spiritual was probably a misconception that was imparted to him wrongfully.
    He was torn between his wants in life and his spiritual yearnings and when Sayadaw Pandita said ‘No’ to him was actually helping him to realize his wrong concept between spirituality and martial arts. It is just like a soft slap on his face pretty much telling him ‘ hey wake up to reality’ Sayadaw saw through his inflated ego and wanted to help him diminish it, in addition Sayadaw could see that Mr.Kessler was carrying unnecessary baggage and was trying to help him offload it. He knew Mr. Kessler has purity in his heart and on that basis accepted him back later on to the meditation center.
    Enlightened gurus, masters, lamas has the abilities to see through pretty much all our faults, strength, weaknesses and characters and therefore would probably let us go through tough assignments to bring up our strengths, running us down to ground levels to deflate our egos. When once these are minimized then perhaps the actual teachings would gradually start and finally help and guide us to realize the true nature of self.

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.

I get requests from all around the world to do prayers. For certain individuals it\'s really dire, so I make special candle offerings to the Buddhas for them at my private residence. These are the candles that was offered recently for a very ill young little girl. Tsem Rinpoche

This is powerful and true. When someone disappoints you so many times, it cannot be an accident anymore. You need to have compassion for them to not do more negative karma and not allow it anymore and we need need to have compassion for ourselves too and not let them hurt us again.. Tsem Rinpoche

This is the road that leads to my house in the mountains. I have a small house and a lake nearby the house and I live there on vegan foods with my pets-Mumu loves running around the meadows. I have a large outdoor Vajra Yogini statue made of stone and we make offerings of juniper leaves burned to her daily as sang. I love living in the mountains away from the senseless repeating of actions in urban life. Urban life with its various pollutions do not connect us to who we are inside. I love this walking path to my retreat home where I will live for the rest of my life and on the way home, I pluck some flowers for my shrine to offer to the Buddha...thank you for allowing me to live here.

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

This stairway nestled among green hills is Sanku Vajra Yogini temple in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is one of the five sacred shrines and temples dedicated to Her. In this temple a lady who was an emanation of Vajra Yogini showed many miracles and when she passed they made a likeness of her body and enshrined it here. So we can worship Vajra Yogini in the form of this lady at this sacred temple in Sanku. I visited here with many of my dharma friends years ago to pay homage to this sacred Vajra Yogini.

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini\'s practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.

Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
