Do you need to be rich to make offerings? To do practice or dharma? Is offerings only about money? Is giving just from money? Is giving only subjected by how much money you have? Is the collection of merits, positive energy only by money? Well read below to see the answer for yourself please….

Today I received a very powerful and sincere gift from June Tang. It was pure effort and pure practice combined with pure effort. I really appreciated her incredible offering of practice very much. I thank her so much for using her time in such a wonderful way.

June Tang is a member of the Kechara House Southern Jewel Chapel. This is Kechara’s study group in Johor Bahru… at the southern most tip of Malaysia. For her birthday, June offered an ang pau (auspicious red packet), 4 little mooncakes, and her prayers… how thoughtful.

I wanted to share this with people who always think they need money to make offerings. Is practice, offerings or collecting merit not possible without money? June Tang proves otherwise. It’s whether you want to or not do dharma. My answer is no, you really don’t need to be rich or have lots of money to do practice. Take a look at June’s offerings that is from her heart and very precious. I am so appreciative that I must share this with all of you to rejoice.

She enclosed with it all a sweet letter… Thank you, June Tang. I have offered all that you gave to the Buddhas.

这一切都无需花钱!

你必须富裕才能做供养、才能修持佛法吗?供养指的只能是金钱吗?施予的只能是金钱吗?你的施予是由你拥有多少金钱来决定的吗?我们只能靠金钱来累积功德和正能量吗?好好阅读以下内容,为自己找寻答案……

我今天收到了来自陈惠凌(June Tang)的一份十分极具诚意的礼物。这份礼物来自她纯然的努力和修持,再加上努力。我十分珍惜她这份以修持所做的供养。我非常感谢她以这么美好的方式来善用她的时间。

陈惠凌是克切拉南方之宝的成员,那是克切拉位于马来西亚最南部地区的新山阅读小组。在她生日那天,陈惠凌供养了一个红包、四个小月饼和她的祈愿……多么有心思。

我想跟那些时常以为必须有钱才能做供养的人分享这件事。没有钱,难道就不能修持或累积功德了吗?陈惠凌向大家证明事实并非如此,这只取决于你是否真心投入佛法。我的答案是,你真的无需富裕或拥有许多金钱才能修持佛法。看看惠凌用心的供养,这是一份珍贵的供养。我十分珍惜它,也因此想跟大家分享,让大家为之随喜。

她也附上一封美丽的信函……感谢你,陈惠凌。我已将你所有的供养都供养了佛菩萨。

 

詹仁波切

 

亲爱的仁波切:

我希望在自己生日(2012年9月21日)当天供养您一份诚挚的礼物。考虑了好几天后,我决定将自己每日修持仪轨的记录、一盒月饼和一个小红包供养给您,祝愿您长寿、健康、常转法轮、心想事成,时常陪伴着我们!!

    Although this gift is not a lot, but I can tell that this gift is given sincerely by June, from her heart. I do not believe that we can only offer expensive things (although it will be good if we can present the best that we can as offerings), but I believe that if we offer up things that we have thought through and really mean it, Buddhas and our lamas would accept them with open hands and be very happy with us.

  2. Jessica Yap on Apr 11, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    Dear June,
    Thank you for such sharing such a beautiful offering! Not only are you kind and diligent and devoted, you’re very thoughful too! So nice to be able to offer this gift to our dear Guru. =)
    I’m sure you’d get this alot.. You definitely are an inspiration to me! thank you!!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  3. Joy on Jan 2, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    Offerings comes in many different forms… the best offering which Rinpoche has often taught is an offering without the 8 worldly concerns…. No money, no problem. For some of us we serve, for some we do our practice like June here, for some we need to our Dharma work well, and some we need to built KFR. Whatever the offerings may be it should be unconditional and sincere from the heart… after you have that motivation of offering with out any expectations.. then it becomes a tru sincere offerings to the Buddha and that is when we collect the merits we so need… in which is a fuel for our Dharma practice, spiritual growth, Dharma understanding and our projects to come to fruition.

    Here is an brief explanation on the 8 worldly concern by HH the Dalai Lama…

    Why be unhappy about something when it can be remedied? His Holiness the Dalai Lama notes that if we avoid or turn away from The Eight Worldly Concerns in our spiritual practice, we can reduce suffering.

    What are you attached to? What do have aversions to? See if they mirror the Eight Worldly Concerns:

    1. Attachment to getting and keeping material things.

    2. Aversion to not getting material things or being separated from them.

    3. Attachment to praise, hearing nice words, and feeling encouraged.

    4. Aversion to getting blamed, ridiculed, and criticized.

    5. Attachment to having a good reputation.

    6. Aversion to having a bad reputation.

    7. Attachment to sense pleasures in general.

    8. Aversion to unpleasant experiences.

  6. Ash Ng on Oct 25, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    I simply can’t stop myself from rejoicing for my dear Dharma sister June 🙂 She has been engaging her foundation practises for quite some time and I have seen her changed to a caring and responsible person. This has only been possible when she engaged what H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has instructed. These practises have indeed transformed her mind. Keep up the great effort!!! Cheers 🙂 May you achieve full awakening for the benefit of others!!! Tashi Delek!!

  7. Leu Chong Hin -kH (JB) on Oct 20, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Sincerity and putting effort for our spiritually practice are importance, June Tang are shown us the true practice. Keep going

  8. Grace Leu -kH (JB) on Oct 20, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    我为恵凌感到骄傲和隨喜!她告诉我们只要诚恳和努力,这份心意不是金钱可以衡量的。我为她的用心与真心感到感动。

I will keep to heart all of your support and dedicate all this positive thoughts to our dearest Tsem Tulku Rinpoche good health,long life,always turn the dharma wheel,all his wishes can come true.I wish that everyone have smooth enlightenment
    journey !!

  10. Mavis on Oct 10, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing this with us and thank you June for being an inspiration to us and a shining example of what offerings is about when you are sincere. Happy Birthday June!

  11. HelenaC on Oct 9, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    This is very inspiring and sincere offer to our Guru, June shows us how devoted she is. Rejoice for June, Wonderful offerings 🙂

  12. Uncle Eddie on Oct 9, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    A quotable quote from Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, “Remember, if we wish to make any offering to our Teacher, no offerings is greater than that of our own Dharma practice.” It is said that higher teachings are worthless if we cant even appreciate the most basic and remember to apply them as part of our daily live practice always. This is for purpose of building up a stable foundation for a solid base. Such virtues and merits are said to be of the highest in the practice of offerings made to our gurus! I really rejoice at June’s pure sincerity and wisdom.

  13. Low ksjc on Oct 7, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    We certainly rejoice for Ms June achievement and her sincere gesture of guru devotion. She has always been an inspiration to us in KHJB and I hope she has more beautiful and memorable birthday to come.

  14. Cynthia L on Oct 7, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    June’s action itself is a powerful teaching that we come into this world to benefit others and not to waste our lives away with mundane activities. Therefore, our birthdays should act as a reminder of that. Instead of celebrating by partying and having fun expecting others to shower us with gifts and attention, we should give something back to others. We can buy nice dinner for our family and friends or better still engage in retreats like what June has done. The highest gift will be to repay the kindness of our guru and remember that whatever we know which can help us gain a better rebirth is through our guru.

    Happy belated birthday, June. May your dedication bring you much merit and happiness.

  15. Paris on Oct 5, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing this and I’m extremely happy to hear about June’s huge accomplishments. It’s inspiring to see how someone who isn’t so physically close to the teacher, without the same large support of a center that many people have, is so consistent, determined and focused in her practices. Thank you June for being a wonderful example to all of us.

    June is also one of the stalwart members of KSJC who consistently comes up to KL to join in activities here, participate in retreats and contributes towards the many projects here, in whatever way she can…. and most of all, she is extremely humble about her practice and contribution. I would never have known she was accumulating these many mantras if not for this blog post.

  16. soonhuat on Oct 5, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Sister June is my new ideal, I do admire her persistance in Dhamar

  17. Sarah on Oct 4, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Wow…. What a taught full gift! It’s true, offerings don’t always require money especially when it comes to Dharma practice. In fact, I remember many times that Rinpoche mentioned, the best offering we can give to Rinpoche is transformation and practicing the Dharma. I rejoice that June took Rinpoche’s heartfelt wishes and materialized it through her practice.
    Rinpoche has never asked anything from us except to practice the Dharma full heartedly, which is the very reason why we join or attend classes in Kechara in the first place.

  18. Datuk May on Oct 4, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Rinpoche has always taught us that the best offering to our Lama is our Mind Transformation. This teaching alone means that the best offering is totally without involvement of money but sheer practice on the Buddhist teachings which will ultimately transform our minds.

    I thank June for putting to practice what true offering is and the wonderful mantras which she has recited and blessed the environment and beings in her space.

  19. limtinnee on Oct 4, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us how we can spend our precious time doing precious dharma work without using money n thank u June, for showing us by example, how we can practise Dharma purely to transform our mind to increase guru devotion ,to purify n to collect merits.Your incredible achievement shows how determine n focus you ‘re inyour Dharma practice.Happy belated birthday wish to u,June.I sincerely rejoice with u for your great effort u put in your Dharma practice.

  20. lam on Oct 4, 2012 at 12:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing what June Tang has offered to Rinpoche such a special gift on his birthday. Rinpoche has shown us that offering does not limit to only money. The important thing is our motivation and sincerity in doing our Dharma work and practice.

    June Tang, I rejoice for what you have done. Your great effort and time put in to achieve your records of sadhana, prayers and mantra recitation will definitely inspire and motivate lots of people.

  21. Sheryl KH (JB) on Oct 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    For a newly-join member like myself, I am absolutely amazed by the number of mantras, water offerings, prostrations etc that June has accumulated. The numbers simply amaze me…

    What lies behind these numbers are sincerity, strong belief in Guru and Dharma, perseverance and the dedication to always keep count of what has been done on daily basis.

    This post shows me sincerity does not need to be based on how much has been spent, but rather, it is the thoughts and sincerity that always touch hearts the most.

    This post also shows me that Rinpoche does not need expensive offerings, what touches him is always the sincerity.

    I rejoice at what June has accomplished…

  22. Uncle Lai on Oct 3, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    Is amazing to read this beautiful message from June Tang, She is so sincere in her practice and her devotion to the Guru is commendable. The message is so simple but there is a lot of effort and love put in it.
    I rejoice in your effort and is truly inspiring.
    Happy belated Birthday Greetings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing is beautiful message.

  23. Lyn Phng on Oct 3, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Such a sincere and beautiful gift to Rinpoche who deserves nothing less from a true devoted student who has in turn touched and inspired so many people.
    Thank you June for showing us all what true Guru devotion really entails. An offering from your heart that is priceless and worth so much more than all the monies in the world can ever buy. May you gain many many merits for your loved ones and for Rinpoche’s long life, good health and may all his hopes and dreams come true.

  24. wan on Oct 3, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    The best offering is the practice and transformation which is come from effort, patience, generosity of time, sincere, meditation, moral discipline which lead to ultimate goal of gaining wisdom to enlighten.
    June put her effort, time and her sincere in doing such a number of prayers in her daily among her other responsibilities ie office work, housewife and mother. It’s really show her dedication and how she treasure in the spiritual practice under the guidance of Guru.

  25. shashi on Oct 3, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    i really have to salute June for such a great effort . May you continue this practise further and hope you can get enlightment soon

  26. Girlie Ooi on Oct 3, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    Whatever we offer must come from the heart; it need not be something expensive (as in monetary term). The best to offer to our Guru is our transformation and practice.

    June has shown us that what she had offered is something beyond what money can buy.

  27. su_zan on Oct 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    This is indeed a very inspirational article. The list of offering is just tremendous. Money seriously cant buy any of it but with the time she had, she had made a different type of offering.

    June, you are a very beautiful person. May your Dharma journey grow and grow and Happy Birthday.

  28. VICTOR PHANG on Oct 3, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche:

    Thanks for the sharing. Sometimes I do have the impression that “rich” people is in better position to practice dharma in this period of time simply because they may be able to do something extra that an average or low income earners unable to provide. For instance, spend more time to practice dharma, to volunteer frequently in dharma center, make luxury offering and give huge donation to develop dharma which would translate into merits. Then these merits may accelerate the growth of dharma seed within themselves and at the same time purify their negative karma and obstacle in learning dharma.

    But of course monetary affordability is not the criterion to / not to practice dharma. With right motivation, commitment and sincerity, one will find way to practice dharma and also can collect huge amount of merits without spending a single cent.

    Personally I rejoice for June, her offering is a very good example to everyone of us.

    Thank you Rinpoche and June.

  29. jp on Oct 3, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    It is great news to read about June’s offering to Rinpoche. I believe that offering our spiritual practice to our lama is one of the highest offerings. The top of the list would be mind transformation. June’s sincerity, effort and focus on her spiritual development is commendable and inspiring. Thank you June.

  30. Jeffrey on Oct 3, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Wow! Very sincere offering. The effort and sincerity of June is a clear sign of how devoted is she to Rinpoche. Really inspiring and and June you’re a perfect example for us to learn from. Practicing dharma and offerings does not mean we need money only. What is most important is how sincere are we in our practice. Thank you!

  31. adrian chow on Oct 3, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Congratulations June and Happy Birthday! Its just shows that it is possible, with the clear mind and right motivation we can achieve wonders. Moreover this is for the Dharma which will help June in the current and many more lives to come. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story which is truly inspiring to all of us.

    Love
    Adrian Chow

  32. tfreon on Oct 3, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Dear June,
    Congratulations on your effort and happy belated birthday.
    This is a very special birthday gift to present to Rinpoche.

    The amount of mantras and offerings, showed that she is persistent in doing her daily prayer.
    An offering to a Buddha, does not need something glamorous. I have learned from this post , the most precious offering comes from our heart. A sincere heart. Thank you June for this inspiration. Thank you Rinpoche for the guidance.

  33. justin cheah on Oct 3, 2012 at 10:15 am

    Thank you for sharing this Rinpoche.

    June is one of the many dedicated Kecharians and I am particularly amazed by the level of commitment that she has in her practice (especially the distance she is away from our mother temple).

    The fact that she did all the sadhanna and prayers despite she has two kids to take care of, a working mother and also housewife really speaks the level of her commitment and devotion towards Rinpoche. Congratulations to June!

  34. James Long on Oct 3, 2012 at 6:03 am

    June 每晚都会在家耐心的做自己的功课,一天忙碌下来,认真的她会持续自己的功课直到凌晨两三点,之后还得早起,照顾孩子,之后就进去公司。她的那份坚持在今时今日是非常难得的。

    一份礼物,一份供养,不必是最贵重,但是那份心意。我记得仁波切说过,最好的供养就是我们心识的转化。June 愿意走出自己的舒适地带,在马来西亚南部,诚心的完成这些功课,真的为她开心,她也设立了一个榜样于所有的人,工作忙不是一个借口。愿她的修行之旅更加坚定,更加进步。

  35. Pastor Yek Yee on Oct 3, 2012 at 2:39 am

    很多時候,我總以為禮物最重要是越貴重越好,孰不知因為這樣的錯误想法导致我們在送禮時顯得扭扭捏造作,失了送禮的真正意義和心意。

    看到June送的這份中秋月餅給仁波切,心裡想哗,平日大刺刺的她,原來心思蛮細膩的。她的這份禮物帶來的是一份誠意和巧思,讓我這種沒心肝的人慚愧不已。

    禮物的貴重對仁波切來說,完全沒有任何意義,但仁波切卻能從一份禮物中,嗅覺出一個人的誠意有多少分。。。因此,供养上師,可以完全不花上半分錢只要你用心即可,因為你的用心,上師是可以feel得到的!

  36. bengkooi on Oct 3, 2012 at 2:08 am

    I rejoice for June and her very sincere offering. No matter what offerings of food, flowers, incense, precious items, etc we offer the guru, the one that is most important is the offering of practice. Why? Because, your guru wants you to transform, and practice is a sign of that.

    As it says in the texts, what pleases your guru the most is the offering of practice, otherwise the guru is not a real guru….

  37. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 3, 2012 at 1:55 am

    Monetary offering is one of the lowest form of offering to our spiritual teacher, but showing result of our spiritual practice is the best offering, June is the first member from KHJB that i know of, since the first day, she is always so sincere and always give her best offering to Rinpoche.

    Thank you June for showing us one very good example on making a better offering than just money. This piece of paper with the figures inside shows how much you put in effort into your practice, this is not any beautiful word can compare, because action speak the loudest word, you not only showing us the good way of offering, you also showed us what type of element a dedicated student should have, sincerity and integrity. You said you want to practice Dharma, and you really do it whole heartily.

  38. Angelshooi on Oct 3, 2012 at 12:27 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful news re June Tang.

    June, I am inspired by your sincerity, commitment, motivation and hard work. And it’s so beautiful and meaningful gifts that you have offered up to Rinpoche on your birthday , which money can’t buy. By doing these you will collect lots lots merits and create the course for you to be ever closer to the Guru, Dharma and The Three Jewels. I rejoice for you June! 🙂

    • kwok wai on Oct 3, 2012 at 1:23 am

      Happy belated birthday June ! Truly amazing and sincere gift I must say and i did not even know when i sat next to you at Kechara Sunday Service. You are humble and sincere and i am inspired by your dedication and commitments. Next time i see you, i will ask you how it is done , wow ! your saddhana is like a shopping list. Kudos to you June !

  39. Yvonne Yap on Oct 3, 2012 at 12:02 am

    这是一份很特别,很有心思的礼物,平时的我们想到买礼物就头大!其实用一用心,就是一份独一无二,很有心思又有新意礼物。

    曾经听同修说过,上师不是要我们很昂贵的东西,一切都来自我们的心。其实如果我们看到自己喜欢的东西,我们能做观想,送给我们的上师。听起来很不可思议,但是这一切,都来自我们的心意。

  40. Louise Lee on Oct 2, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    首先要谢谢仁波切的分享! 还有有祝June 生日快乐!

    当Yen Pin刚来Kechara 工作时,我常常听到你的名字! 常常与我们分享你们KSJC如何成立!还有所有的点点滴滴!

    所谓建庙容易,维持难! 谢谢你们!因为有你们的勇气与用心, Kechara才能让柔佛的居民有机会认识仁波切与佛法!!

    现在人人常常为了两餐忙碌,渐渐地被金钱麻木的双眼!常常就会以金钱为出发点!这样是错的!

    金钱很重要,但是并不代表一切!太过于,沉迷会让我们慢慢地迷失! 

    所以非常谢谢仁波切, 把这份珍贵的礼物与大家分享!

    一份心意, 可以用很多的金钱购买! 
    一份心意,也可以花很多心血、时间与毅力,去完成!

    两者只要是真心,功德与回报都是一样的! 

  41. KYC on Oct 2, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    This is proof that offering our practice to the guru is the best gift. You really don’t need to be rich to practice Dharma. Of course, if we can afford it, we try to offer to the Three Jewels the best we can. Rinpoche has taught us that what we offer is what we will receive at the end of the day. How much we offer up is how much we will get. I rejoice for June Tang. May she have attainments.

  42. Khoo Hou Haw on Oct 2, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    This is such a thoughtful and sincere offering from June Tang. This will take years to achieve that amount. Thanks June Tang for showing us such commitment and devotion. Wish you have a wonderful and successful dharma achievement.

  43. Karen Leu on Oct 2, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    The first thing that came into my mind when i read this was, how discipline & committed she is to carry out her Sadhana. Her dedication is not into wishing something for herself. Instead it is to dedicate to Rinpoche’s health, spreading dharma to more people.

    Thanks June for showing us a good example & happy belated birthday

  44. philyong on Oct 2, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    This is a must read for everybody! What a nice and sincere offering from June. The best gift to offer our Gurus are of our mind transformation.

    June shows this by her dedication in her practice. Her devotion to her Guru albeit being in another state of the country is amazing. Many people who are closer to Rinpoche do not even have such devotion.

    Thank you June for showing the correct method of Guru Devotion!

  45. Lanse on Oct 2, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Dear June, your offeringsto Rinpoche were such a pleasant surprise to me. I was so happy to read and translate this article, and definitely do not mind to translate a longer list of your daily sadhana:)

    I admire your consistency in doing the practices and in keeping the record. I believe such consistency will give you more confidence and strength in continuing your Dharma practices. And you have shown us a good example too.

    All the best, and happy belated birthday wish to you.

  46. tenzin llhamo on Oct 2, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Wow! Such an amazing and inspiring gift from June. Sincerely from the heart and its priceless! The best offerings in the world is our practices and mind transformation, something that can’t be bought with money. Dharma has nothing to do with just giving money and don’t care about anything else. Giving our time and care like June is really inspiring. I may not be rich but I am super grateful and thankful to be in Kechara Paradise where I can practice and also help the people I come across. Thank you for the inspiring post again Rinpoche!

  47. Gim Lee on Oct 2, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    June Tang offered the most valuable offerings one can make to one’s Lama; the offering of her sincere spiritual practices, how wonderful.

    I am totally amazed and respect her very much for accomplishing such a feat. As saying goes: action speaks louder than words.

    I rejoice for her great efforts, dedication and devotion to Rinpoche.

    Keep up the good works Sis June, you are such a great inspiration to us.

  48. Li Kheng on Oct 2, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Thank you June for showing us that practice and sincerity is most important in Dharma practice. The merits you have collected from your practice is precious and your practice of generosity to dedicate it to Rinpoche is such a good example for all of us!

    I would like to add that we do not need money to practice dharma, but pure practice with results in an inspiring state of being will draw in funds that will cause the work of Rinpoche to flourish.

    May our good example of dharma practice draw in more sincere practitioners and kind sponsors.

    • Sean Pang on Oct 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      Hi Likheng,

      I totally agree with you, thanks for the wonderful words!

      @June: what a sincere gift!

      Sean in Shanghai

  49. Paul Yap on Oct 2, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful news and gifts with us.

    Its very inspiring to have June Tang, a lady who is taking care and very involved in KHJB, a working mother and at the same time doing sadhana and retreat in between her daily schedule, and offering up to Rinpoche.

    I wish June always protected by the three jewels and has a smooth dharma journey, and everyone will be inspired by her

  50. Han on Oct 2, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    非常殊胜的供养!JUNE TANG 是我们在佛法修习路上很好的学习模范。
    她的诚心供养让我深深体会在学佛过程,上师最最期望我们给予的还有心识转化上的殊胜供养。
    感谢JUNE 的启发及给予仁波切这么真诚的供养,JUNE, 您肯定是我学习的对象。谢谢!

  51. ERIC LEE KHJB on Oct 2, 2012 at 11:50 am

    其实,以前的我有一个很错误的观念,认为在藏传佛教的供养,是需要花很多的金钱,才能负担的起的。可是,但我看到这一个post了以后,我才意识到其实佛与上师并不需要我们的钱,他们只是希望我们能在心灵的层面上有所提升及转化,那已经是最好的供养了。

    • Shin on Oct 5, 2012 at 9:57 pm

      我以前也常听人家说, 要学习藏传佛教必须花很多钱, 可能大家也听过吧!供养固然重要,但是像JUNE这样以修行来作供养的礼物是非常殊胜,因为菩贤菩萨强调“诸供养中,法供养第一”。 “法供”顾名思义是以法为供品。而且在自己的生日,这位寿星婆并不在等人送礼,反而还先自己供养上师,这是值得学习的, 毕竟修行是多关注别人, 先他人后自己, 谢谢你的好榜样June!

  52. Mayy on Oct 2, 2012 at 10:37 am

    June’s offerings has shown us that the most important ‘ingredient’ in making offerings is to offer from the heart. It is not about wanting to look good but our sincerity and consistency.

    Thank you June. Am so happy for you.

  53. nicholas on Oct 2, 2012 at 9:23 am

    This is indeed proven that making offering not necessarily you need to have a lot of money. Making offering to the Buddha can be in many ways and it always subject to individual condition but one will not change is the sincerity. Be it rich or poor the most important is to offer the best.

    June’s offering really from her spiritual heart and I feel it is one of best. Her dedication towards Rinpoche shown from her dedicated practices. Inspiring!

    Thank you June for showing us the spiritual way of making offering and Happy Belated Birthday.

  54. AdelineTan on Oct 2, 2012 at 9:15 am

    June Tang is such a devoted student of Rinpoche as you can see what she has done and offered so many prayers to Rinpoche on her birthday,fantastic! I personally love to chant mantras a lot,it can help to calm my mind, improve my memories, clear obstacles and even prolong my life as for my case,and i would like to sincerely thank Rinpoche for giving me so many prayers to do and i also will dedicate
    all the prayers to Rinpoche.

  55. Melissa Sin on Oct 2, 2012 at 7:08 am

    Just by reading the title, it has already touched me heart. The devotion she has towards her practice is pure and well motivated. You can tell she’s doing it straight from her heart with much sincerity, as she shows no excuses. She clearly knows money that isn’t what’s really needed here, she knows that money can’t help you when you pass on, and the only thing that can stand by your side is the knowledge she holds of the holy buddha’s teachings and blessings.

    I thank you June for showing us efforts like these are possible, you are a great example to others and myself. Also, thank you Rinpoche for showing us the true meaning of dharma. I hope you had a great moon cake festival.

    Sincerely with folded hands,
    Melissa Sin

  56. Joy on Oct 2, 2012 at 3:03 am

    This is truly an amazing offering with pure sincerity… it is inspiring! It just goes to show that we can all shut up and stop saying we don’t have money or we can’t! What June has done shows her devotion, her discipline, stability, consistency, responsibility, and her firmness in her practice. Her offering is priceless!

    Many always think that an offering is some kind of physical object… well not always and sometimes they are even more valuable then any object in the world.

    Thank you June for such a beautiful blessed gift to all of us… your gift speaks volumes and shows us what a true sincere offering can be even without money 🙂

  57. joey wong on Oct 2, 2012 at 2:21 am

    Wow! I really rejoice on the amount of mantras that she did and what she has offered up to Rinpoche! it is a lot of mantras and practices that one can do. This shows sincerity and it does not require money to do. Sincere students like these are not often found these days I guess, but it is amazing that she is!

  58. ericchoong on Oct 2, 2012 at 2:12 am

    做任何事情都应该具有一颗真诚的心,对人对事,也包括修行佛法。
    但是佛法修行也并不是只单靠金钱可以完成的,不过如果没有金钱的赞助去修建佛堂也行不通啊!
    所以这个矛盾就在这里。。。我个人认为,有钱没钱都没关系,最重要是否你有颗真诚
    的心去学佛和供养。对!报答上师珍贵的礼物就是自己的内心转化,
    去学习上师的好品质,利益众生。因为这份供养是金钱买不到的。
    谢谢你june,法喜

  59. Pastor Susan on Oct 2, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Making offerings is our way of connecting with the three jewels, with our most kind Guru who teaches us the dharma. The offerings benefit the giver more than the recipient. Something to think about.. There are many ways of making offerings and reasons or motivation for making offerings. Rinpoche taught that the real reason is to create the propensity for us to receive the dharma.

    June Tang inspires me by her sincerity and practice. Thank you June Tang and thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.

    Here’s a short video for those of you who may be interested to know more about offerings :

  60. Cynthia Ng on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    June你那份真挚的心打动了我,看着你把那份每天累积下来的供养献给仁波切,那份心意确实是真金难买的供养,以及那份认真修持的心是我的借镜。我为你感到随喜!

    万物没有不可能的是,只是我们要不要出实现,任何的事情与难题只要我们坚持与持续性的出完成的话,根本不会难倒我们。

    在此献上我迟来的祝福”生日快乐!”祈愿你和南方之宝可以放光发热,把宗喀巴和仁波切的教诲广传,利益众生!

  61. Thierry on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Sincerity is worth more than a mountain of diamonds.
    What June Tang has offered is a sincere daily practice.
    A gift from the heart, not from the wallet, they are the hardest to give!

  62. Martin on Oct 1, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    It is a precious gift from the heart, out of pure devotion to the Guru. Clearly, practice and sadhana is not something June does only on her spare time. You can only clock up those kind of numbers with sincere commitment to the practice. And in dedicating all those prayers to Rinpoche, June has secured such tremendous merits for herself, her family and her Dharma work. I am happy for June.

    This is an inspiration and this is one gift money cannot buy. Even of you paid something to do it, it would have the same value.

  63. Julia Tan on Oct 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    It’s very inspiring to know about June’s preciously offerings for Rinpoche. Sometimes buying a gift is just a few minutes away from choose, pay and wrap. What June had offered takes time to accumulate and it has a lot of care and love in it. We all do Sadhana everyday but how many of us actually bother to record it down and having this sweet thought of one day i can offer it up to my our precious Guru.

    June, your love and care to Rinpoche is beyond words can describe. Thank you for such a beautiful offerings.

  64. June Kang on Oct 1, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    June Tang has showing a very good example to all of us – an offering doesn’t need lots of money. It is a very great offering. Rejoice!

  65. KH Ng on Oct 1, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank You for sharing this with us. June really showed us what sincerity means. While it is true one cannot live without money but the money itself doesn’t buy everything. It is the heart, the effort and the sincerity in practicing Dharma that counts. It is the sincerity to benefit others that accumulate merits and wisdom.

    This is a humble lesson that in Samsara, sufferings are pervasive but Dharma is not. Even rarer is the Guru. May I have the strength to practice Dharma sincerely and be on the way to renunciation.

    With folded hands!
    KH Ng.

  66. PhillisChin on Oct 1, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    Such a pure, precious, sincere gift. Rejoice to June Tang!!! ^^,

  67. Siong Woan on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    I rejoice for June to have offered up her most sincere gift, which was done and accumulated on daily basis over a long period of time.

    Let this be the shinning example for ALL who aspire to advance in their spirituality.

  68. DR on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    What a beautiful gift! Any gift from the heart is beautiful; from a heartfelt written note to a tangible gift.

    This gift, i am sure, is a pleasant surprise as June did not make a big song and dance of how good she is that she is doing all these practices but instead quietly did it and offered. To me, this is so sincere.

    May June also be blessed with all that she wishes for.

  69. Henry Ooi on Oct 1, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I rejoice in June’s labour of love and care.

    June is one of the dedicated members if KSJC and they make regular visits to Kechara for pujas and events. She has also invited a 3′ Lama Tsongkhapa statue to her home. Wonderful!

  70. wei theng on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:46 am

    It is a very sincere, beautiful and meaningful gift from June. June has shown me what is true offering is. It is not about money, but it is about the sincerity, effort and pure motivation that count. Thanks June. You are very inspiring.
    I still remember that there was once we need to do work in Chinese. Although you are not familiar with typing Chinese Character, you find all ways to get the work done. Very inspiring.
    Everyone of us have the ability to do offerings. If we have money, we can do offerings in terms of material. If we do not have money, there are still a lot of things to offers, our practices, our effort and our motivation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and show us the real life example.

  71. Lim (KH JB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Rejoice for June Tang (KH JB), u offered the most precious, and sincere gift to Guru. Rejoice for u hard work in your daily sadhana, u show us a very good example.

    Thank Rinpoche for sharing this awesome offering that show us “It’s all done without money”…

  72. Wah Ying on Oct 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

    When I saw June Tang’s daily sadhana records, it is just powerful because she does her practice daily and continuously. Thank you June Tang for inspiring we that offerings is not all about money, and to do our practice more diligently and with pure motivation. Rejoice for June and thank you again.

  73. lewkwanleng on Oct 1, 2012 at 3:33 am

    I have learnt that we don’t need to spend any money to make offerings. In fact, all the excuses I gave myself for not doing what i’m supposed to do are mainly my laziness. There are many times I “complaint” I have no money to buy offering items and yet I spent the money on other unnecessary items which only bring temporary happiness.

    Rinpoche has mentioned it many times but I really appreciate June for showing us by example. It is time to get off my excuses and making offerings.

  74. Carmen K. on Oct 1, 2012 at 12:29 am

    June truly exeplifies here that an offering does not necessarily mean a material offering. Like when you offer care, help, love, kindness, generosity, and time to others, which is from your heart, the offering can sometimes mean so much more than a material gift to the receiver, which when and if misplaced is gone but something as intangible as love and care will not be replaced or lost. Of course, being able to afford and buy something to offer is good, but you offer the best you can from the bottom of your heart. It can sometimes mean so much more than a gift that is solely expensive. An offering is a gift in any way,shape,form from the heart.

    The bottom line is to offer what you can, at the best you can, whatever it costs you, because sincerity cannot be bought.

    June, your consistency in doing your daily sadhana and mantra recitation is extremely commendable. May it fruition into you gaining attainments and realise the results of your consistent practise. 🙂

  75. Elena on Sep 30, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    If you think about it, what really is impressive about June isn’t the numbers, but what’s behind the numbers which is the commitment and consistency to her practice. She’s not in Dharma full-time, and has external work commitments yet managed to complete these numbers. What about the rest of us who ARE in full-time Dharma? 😉

  76. Andrew Boon on Sep 30, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    It clearly shows that sincerity is and always is the key to making any form of offerings to our Lama. In fact, the best and truest form of offering is the transformation of our minds… that would be the ultimate as our Lama is here to make us confront our delusions and attachments. And this cost absolutely NOTHING! It brings back memories of the homeless lady in Bangkok that gave Rinpoche EVERYTHING she owned. To us it may not have been much but it was her everything. It once again highlights the sincerity of giving! For those of you who may have missed this post, here is the link: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/letters-cards-gifts/yesterday-i-experienced-true-generosity.html

  77. Sock Wan on Sep 30, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Indeed, offerings can be anything, we often think offering is money. In fact, it can be anything, as simple as offering our daily sadhana, our giving up of bad habit. It is so simple, start doing offering now to collect merits to support our spiritual development.

  78. abby F on Sep 30, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    June的这份礼物,是非常珍贵的。尤其当这个世界都盛传这一句“名言”:金钱可以买到时间,就好比有经济能力乘搭飞机到某个远处,就可以省下我们的时间;又或者金钱能买到方便、有钱使得鬼推磨等。因此这个社会视金钱为一切,以为钱可以取代所有。

    然而,June却保持一颗真诚的心,她清楚了解用心修持佛法,就是给上师最好的礼物。这是她了解及体会仁波切教诲的表现!心识的转化,是给上师最无上的供养。这是仁波切一再强调的事。谢谢June启发了大部分的人,因为大部分的人也不是什么大富大贵之人。

    仁波切初到马来西亚时也没什么钱。他供奉佛菩萨的供品,也不是什么上品。当时他用了塑料制的东西做供品,难道他的供养之心,就因为这样而不成立了吗?如果是这样,很多很多没什么经济能力的喇嘛全都修行没成就了吗?显然不是。 🙂

    • Chris Tan on Oct 4, 2012 at 3:56 pm

      Abby, 谢谢你在这里提到当时仁波切初到马来西亚时也没什么钱,当时的仁波切用的是吃剩的果冻杯来当作供杯。目的是为了持续他的修持佛法,及对佛菩萨供养。即使口袋里没有多余的零用钱却不会拿这当借口而停止或阻止他的修行。

      象阿June这样,我非常敬佩她对佛菩萨非常坚定的信念。也祝愿她在佛法修持的道路上更加大放异彩。

  79. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 30, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Dear June what you have done is so beautiful and so inspirational. Thank for showing your devotion and methods for us to make offering to a real spiritual teacher.

  80. Sharon Saw on Sep 30, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for sharing this lovely gift from June! It is so true that an offering does not need money. It doesn’t mean that expensive gifts earn less merit but that care and sincerity are most important, regardless of cost.

    It is a very wonderful offering of prayers and effort. I rejoice for June!

    love
    Sharon

  81. yenpin on Sep 30, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    我为你感到随喜,你终于完成你的心愿。

    你这份礼物诚意满满,你不许要花很多金钱,而且又很有意义。

    你的坚持和努力我为你随喜,随喜,随喜。不敢你遇到什么问题和困难只要你有诚意,坚持和努力

    一定能完成任何心愿。我会为你加油!!!

    朋友!!加油吧 ^_^!!!

  82. adeline woon on Sep 30, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    How wonderful is June to offer her practice! I am really amazed with the amount of time she used for all on the list to be done. She has shown us very good qualities of devotion, persistent and effort! Not only that she did all her practice, she actually traveled from JB to KL to present those gifts herself and attended Pastor Yek Yee’s class on Refuge yesterday. June stayed for Kechara Sunday Service and Sunday Dharma class too! What’s more beneficial than to spend our weekends in dharma?

  83. Sofi on Sep 30, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Thanks June for inspiring us. Wish u a belated birthday and may u continue to inspire us with ur dharmic practise. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us. This open my mind to how sincerity in our oferings can mean much more than simply offering of money. Efforts that we put into our dharma practises are the best offerings to our Guru, the Buddhas, ourselves and all sentient beings.

  84. william on Sep 30, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    Nothing is more sincere that a gift from the heart. Sincerity and efforts really counts. June’s gift to Rinpoche is a great inspiration and example for us to do more in Dharma. Definitely not everything is about money!

  85. Lim Tat Ming on Sep 30, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I like your sincerity gift, June! Your offering of your spiritual practices and accomplishments are the best offerings that pleases our lama the most. I rejoice in your thoughtfulness in celebrating your birthday with this offering to Rinpoche.

  86. lucy yap on Sep 30, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    Happy Birthday June,
    Your offering is real,given from the heart and carefully pre planned.
    The value of the gift is not as important as it’s presentation and the thoughtfulness behind the giving.
    A beautiful gift done with a thoughtful heart and pure devotion to her practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us June’s offering.

  87. David Lai on Sep 30, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Like everyone has mentioned, this is inspirational but why do we want to engage in such extended practices? Rinpoche has mentioned that it is a powerful way to purify our negative karma and amass merit for our wishes to be fulfilled and for our Dharma work to grow and increase. Retreats and rituals can be very powerful means to set our life straight and if we are in need of a direction, it will become more apparent. Also, the Dharma would be clearer and easier to be absorbed and transformation to occur.

  88. Jay Jae on Sep 30, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    June is really dedicated to her practice and Rinpoche. What is really inspiring is not only the thoughtfulness of her practice but also her consistency in making these offerings.

    I sincerely rejoice in June’s offering to Rinpoche and aspire to be like her as well.

    I like it when we think of our Lama on celebrations such as the mid autumn festival, we offer our Lama our practice which will make our Lama super happy because he has seen us put our effort into our practice.

  89. Joe Ang on Sep 30, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Thanks to June Tang for being an inspiration to many others that offerings need not be all about material and money. The sincerest form of offering is one’s consistency in his/her practise and June have just reminded me that. 🙂

    Thank you June. You are a very good example of a true Dharma practitioner.

    May KSJC continue to grow and reach out to benefit more people in the southern part of Malaysia.
    😉

  90. Lim Han Nee on Sep 30, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    Very beautiful gifts indeed, coming from the heart of June Tang. When we give sincerely from the heart, our daily practice, that is a powerful gesture of pure Guru Devotion. Thank you June for showing us a fine example of a pure gift.

  91. patsy on Sep 30, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    The best offering to the Buddha or Guru is not how much money one can give but how much effort one puts in towards that gift. June has devoted her time and effort towards her spiritual growth and has spent countless of hours doing sadhanas, mantras, tea offerings and prostrations and dedicated all to Rinpoche’s good health and long
    life. This is something that money cannot buy. It shows her sincerity and love for Rinpoche and her willingness to sacrifice her comfort zone for her dharma practice.

    I wish June a Happy Birthday and that her dharma practice will flourish and may she inspire and motivate others to practice the dharma. Thank you, Rinpoche! Thank you, June!

  92. Irene Lim on Sep 30, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    Offering that comes from the heart is the most meaningful. June you you are beautiful!

  93. choi sheem on Sep 30, 2012 at 11:50 am

    This is a very sincere and meaningful gift that June have offered to Rinpoche. It is really a lot of prayers that have been accumulated. Thank you Rinpoche for showing us one of the many ways that one can make offerings.

  94. Valentina Suhendra on Sep 30, 2012 at 11:16 am

    My simple thought about money and offerings. What moves me about the gift is the sincere motivation behind it. I really like the fact that June is offering it’s practice.

    When I first met Rinpoche 6 years ago, I did not have much personal money. I could ask very little of my parents support back then. Thus, I just offered humble gifts, my small donation to some charity cause and prostration practice. I really think that due to these offerings, I am able to do what I am doing now and gained the much needed support. Money is important of course because without it, we are limited in our capacity to do anything. But the motivation behind it counts even more than what we offered.

    I pray that June Kang’s practice will fluorish fast and that she can bring Dharma to millions of people.

  95. Valentina Suhendra on Sep 30, 2012 at 11:04 am

    Nice gift June Tang

  96. Ron on Sep 30, 2012 at 11:01 am

    The best offering is our effort on dharma practises & the transformation of the mind. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such inspirational story of June for reminding & showing me how.

  97. Li Kim on Sep 30, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Money is not the primary criteria for one’s spiritual journey, thus includes to say that it is not necessary for offerings. Sincerity and good motivation is free 🙂

    Of course if one has money and can make sponsorships for the dharma to grow it is great but again, it does not mean without money you cannot make offerings and be spiritual.

  98. benji on Sep 30, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Sister June is an inspiration!

  99. Thomas Marechal on Sep 30, 2012 at 6:41 am

    Thanks you thanks you thanks you I rejoice on this virtues action and follow this great example

  100. sweekeong on Sep 30, 2012 at 5:22 am

    When I saw the amount of prayers and mantras she did I thought it is unbelievable. June is very dedicated in making prayers. The amount of effort and time to achieve such numbers will make others notice, pick up Dharma practices and have faith in it without giving up easily.

    Everyone’s situation is different, some has more money, some has more time, some has more of both, and some has less of both. The giver giving time or money are the is practicing generosity. Since generosity is a virtue, the first virtue of the six perfections, therefore the result is merit. Not only that spending time and effort to do the prayers develop one’s patient, persistence, and concentration. Because prayers are used to improve our mind which will lead us to be able more virtue in the future thus is a form of discipline. I believe these five perfections are being developed thus it is of great virtue and merits. I am happy to hear about June’s dedication which will motivate others to practice with enthusiasm. 🙂 Thank you June!

  101. Jace on Sep 30, 2012 at 5:12 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us, and thank you June for showing us what is true offering.

    Offerings to Buddha is not how beautiful the offering is nor how much it costs, it’s about how much effort we made to offer. I am really touched by such a devoted student who dedicate literally all precious things she has to the Guru. How auspicious it is to offer all Sadhana prayers to our Guru.

    June, you are really thoughtful and value the Dharma well. Thanks for teaching us a good lesson. Rejoice for you! Wish you a happy birthday, may you have a wonderful spiritual journey! 加油!:-)

  102. Edvin Stokic on Sep 30, 2012 at 4:57 am

    Devotion so pure is very hard to find and not many will practice to gain insight for the benefit of others but merely for worldly results.
    June you are very inspirational and beautiful being.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and I was touched by this story very much. I personally think that this faithful dog must has very close karmic connection with its owner and it know that the owner is died. Furthermore, animals are very sensitive to our energies and mind states. So, if we are loving kindness and compassion, they can feel our love and care.

    As such, we must treat the animals like humans too. Not to harm them because humans can be reborn as animals and animals can be reborn as humans. We have to accept that humans and animals are interconnected and just like a family.

    Spiritual practice is definitely much more than doing good for others. When we practice “spirituality” without religion and from our own understanding, how sure are we that we are on the right track? When we practice spiritual with the guide of religion, we will certain progress and much easily to attain higher levels. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    When we truly love and care for another being like a family, whether this other being is a dog or cat, a child or a stranger, it will break our heart when it is gone. Many people may not be capable of this emotion towards a pet but as we evolved, we will realize we are capable to develop such feelings for animals. It is common in the west to have pets cemetery because of this reason. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

    Interesting info and article about werewolves. I never knew about its origins and the various wolves existence until I read this. I have thus far know about werewolves only from the movies and the famous twilight show. But one thing I noticed from the articles is the gruesome manner in killing the person (or suspected werewolves). Some were cursed to be a werewolves. There just so much anger, violence and killing in the whole process, which probably the reason why werewolves are known to kill and hurt human and other animals.

    Anyway, whether we believe the existence of werewolf is true or not, I believe that there are other forms of beings in world. And we should not handle or deal with other beings with violence and anger.

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

    We are no strangers to the creatures called Werewolves. They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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