I just received this mms/sms message 10 minutes ago. Hehe

“Yes, Rinpoche. We are trying to do what we can to help with the blogging retreat. Keng Nam and I are both sitting in our sunny garden doing this!” -Lily Tan

Lily and Keng Nam may be all the way in a faraway, distant galaxy called UK, but they are with us in spirit. They are writing comments as many of my students and friends are on this blog as to learn more. There is loads of information for you to share and that is the whole purpose of this blogging retreat-to learn more… When your tired, a video to perk you up also. I’ve uploaded many on my blog.

One thing I find suspicious in this photo making me think it might be staged…hmmmmm…heheheh. Why? Well I see no food and drinks under the hot sun on their table!!! And Lily is like me, where I go snacks follow!!! eheheheh…Relax lily…just playing with you.

Send my regards to the boys and of course to the both of you.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Ooooops!!! After I posted this above photo/comment, 15 minutes later Lily sent me another picture below of Keng Nam & son eating. It could still be staged though… Hehe. Perhaps, after reading the above she must of ran into the kitchen and grabbed some eats and brought it out…hmmm….

Ok ok ok…your reading the blog and particpating in the blogging retreat also…hehehe. Should we believe them? Leave your comments..LOL. Tsem Rinpoche

    Lily and Keng Nam is such a cute couple. They stay in UK and come back a few times a year to do dharma work in Kechara. What a great way to study in their sunny garden. I think this is a very good way to study dharma. This is the main idea of Rinpoche started this Blog. So that no matter where we are, what we need are inter net connection and a smart phone or laptop. I love to have snack and drink around me too when I am on Rinpoche’s blog reading and writing comments.

    Like the saying goes, have computer will travel. It makes no difference where you are – from one end of the earth to the other end, we still can communicate, communicate and communicate all the way to UK through the whiff of a wireless second. Yes Lily and Keng Nam, Rinpoche won’t want to miss you both out for anything, because you are his longtime students of proven loyalty. And of course, you would not also want to miss rinpoche’s important event for anything in the world! But not to worry, whatever our guru assigns us things to do will always be for our beneficial interest. Like that of his gurus, Rinpoche never existed for himself but for others only. It must be due to the
    eons of blessings showered on us that we can have the merit to be with him today….!

    Rinpoche has posted on his blog of pictures of Lily and keng nam sitting out in their garden commenting on Rinpoche’s blog. They have also join in the blogging retreat all the way from their home in U.K. Since they are not physically here with us in Malaysia but only by MMS photos Rinpoche has made a little humour out of them by saying that what they are doing in their garden is staged. I don’t think so. Lily and keng nam needs lots of information re activities of Kechara to tell the study group in U.K as they are supposed to be representing the study group in U.K.

  5. Elaine Cheah on Jul 14, 2010 at 12:36 am

    Oh it does look like they posed for the photos! See, how does one read an LCD screen with dark glasses on, I wonder!?? No I think they were enjoying the warm sunshine on a lazy afternoon. If they install a CCTV at that spot and leave it on for us to monitor how long they have been at it and then to be tallied with their output via the blogs, then would it be believable. Nah, I think it’s staged.
    Second thoughts, I give you the benefit of the doubt, he he. Blog on, keep ‘em coming. Love to read them.

    This goes to show how amazing technology is helping us all. And why we are so resistant to using it for our benefit and for others is inexcusable. How else can we be “communicating” in real time manner.
    Example: Just a few minutes ago, I noticed I posted a comment on Rinpoche’s blog on the exact time as Thierry who is working from home whilst I am in E-Division working with Cynthia on some designs for the KSK/KWPC Charity and Auction Dinner. For the curious or for those who have not gotten their tickets (smack in the head! Hehehe), here is the link:-
    http://kechara.com/cn/dinnerauction
    I love it as Rinpoche was blogging, it was obvious that Lily and Keng Nam were indeed on their terrace blogging or they would not be sending you more pictures via mms to prove they were!!!.. hehehe funny indeed!

    Hi Lily and Keng Nam, looks like you folks are having sun and knowledge as well- unbeatable combo. Lama Tsongkapa’s teachings is powerful like the sun. Good to see you are having a fair share of the warming via Rinpoche’s blogs.In Englande you really need it more than we do here.
    It had been an amazing week of learning for all KH members. I think one of the many benefits this retreat had spawned is that it has brought us all closer to our Lama and Guru and also fostering 1Kechara spirit!
    Hope to read yr comments in the blog often.

  8. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 12, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Lily And Keng Nam,
    Hope to see you guys soon in KL where there is lots of action going on. July 18th I’m going to be a black swan wooohoooo for the KWPC/KSK fund raising auction!
    Anyways the blogging retreat helped me personally to uncover a lot of gems from the blog, that I never noticed before. I will start to use the blog for my sharing sessions in IPOH.
    Sometime you think you don’t have that many things to comment on about the same things, but if you dig deep enough sometimes it can surprise you what angle you can come up with at 4.00am in the morning 🙂 hehe

  9. Woan on Jul 11, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Its great to see people are connected over cyberspace 🙂 Staged?? Not likely la.. I would give them the credit even if it was staged — at least they took the trouble to do it..

    It’s pretty hot here in Salem, Oregon. US. like 95 for 3 days is a lot for us, but probably not for Malaysia? Both are rain forests though I think only Malaysia is tropical rainforest and Oregon is a temperate rainforest. also when It’s 11am on the west coast, It’s 2am in Malaysia. Have a nice day blogging everyone.

    1st pic above:
    Keng Nam: “Holy cow!” We have blown our grocery budget for last month.
    Lily: “So, am I the ONLY one to be blamed?”
    —————————————————————–
    2nd pic:
    Keng Nam: “Aiya son, fruits for me this month only.”
    —————————————————————–
    Lily was not in pic coz she was at the grocer’s buying fruits and more fruits….
    —————————————————————–
    Hehehe!I’m not taking a swipe at you guys. Aiyoooo….Just cud not contain my bitchiness lah! 🙂 Very good pics. Thanks!
    It’s good that we are connected through modern gizmo. See you guys back in PJ soon.

  12. Andrew James Boon on Jul 10, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Thierry and I were just in London and it was HOT HOT HOT. Dry heat heat and was I dare say “hotter” than KL. We were running around london before our flight looking for tights and leotards for our Swan Leggers!!!! hehehe. So much fun being in Kechara. I never would have thought we would be in London looking for that and I never even once went into a Paul Smith store!!!! hehehehe

  13. Lily on Jul 10, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Yes I do. Wishing you well and all the best to your dad as well.

  14. ckliew-kc on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    I think its believable as UK Sun might not be as hot as Malaysia sun… hehehehe so they dont need drinks. Just joking , Lily’s wouldnt lie at all never. Its just sooooooo… nice eventhough she is so far far away both of them still participate in this retreat. Wherever we are we should never give up and abandon our practice and continuation learning of the Dharma , of the promise we make to our Guru. We should keep it with all & everything we have as the Guru show us the path to self liberation , free from all Samsara. Dont delay , dont wait or else in a blink of an eye everything will be too late. Never live your life to regret !
    Hi Lily , hope you remembers me – liew chee khoi.

  15. Allan Lee 李栢荣 on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    This is a proof to show that no matter where we are, once we put our heart into it, we will be connected one way or another. Lily and Keng Nam shows their commitment to join us in this wonderful blogging retreat and it seems like this blogging session is getting hotter and hotter. We are now commenting all the way to England! 😀
    Salute to Keng Nam, Lily and son for spending time in your lovely garden to do this blogging retreat.
    This started off with me being clueless on what is this all about, but as I go along, I started to understand more and more what the whole blog is about and started to see things beyond what I see in the blog because it is not about reading and watching the blog. But it actually makes one think about what is the content and the moral behind each topic
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us great information and helping us think further.

  16. keng on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    No Sharon, we should be the ones thanking Rinpoche and all of you good and wonderful people in Kechara that gave us this platform to connect with Kechara and Rinpoche’s teachings in whichever way or form. As I said in an earlier post, today, we don’t exactly need to be reborn in a first world to practice. A ‘whiff’ of the wireless transmission, no matter how weak, and wherever we are is enough for us to receive the teachings. We are of course very blessed to be doing this blogging retreat whilst relaxing in the garden. Unlike some practioners who have to travel to the ‘wilderness’ to do retreats. I can only attribute this to the good fortune of meeting my Lama when it counts and the guidance we received and the condusive methods of retreats he allows us to do.

  17. Sharon Saw on Jul 10, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    This is such a cute post of Lily and Keng Nam… although they are physically far away, they are always only a phone call or email away. When we visited UK last year, they were very hospitable and we were invited to visit their home and see their lovely chapel.
    It’s lovely to see them blogging on their laptops in the garden… it just goes to show that Rinpoche’s teachings are accessible anytime, anywhere!
    Thanks Lily and Keng Nam for joining us on this most innovative of all retreats!!

  18. KYC on Jul 10, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    It is heartening to have people like Lily and Keng Nam who always respond to our calls for help. Although far away, they are with us in spirit. Yes, come to think of it. This is a blogging retreat and many students and friends of Rinpoche are involved. I’ve never heard of a blogging retreat before. Now we have one. Rinpoche has asked some of us the following questions. What have you learned from reading my blogs? What do you feel? What stuck out in reading so many posts in my blog? Are you different after reading? These are very pertinent questions and I think each one of us will answer acording to our own level and our own understanding. Some answers will be common, like learning more about Rinpoche, KH departments and members, gaining more dharma knowledge, etc. Personally, I have gained tremendous faith in Rinpoche’s skillful methods in bringing the dharma to people.

  19. Lily on Jul 10, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Yes Rinpoche, NO SNACKS! I have been put on this low – carb diet to make me lose 200 kgs but the good thing is I can eat 6 times a day!! That is the carrot! He..he..

  20. Margaretlee on Jul 10, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Lily and Keng Nam are two very very loyal students of Rinpoche. They reside in UK. But there is no distance between them and Rinpoche and Kechara. Sometimes, Lily would just take a flight back to KL to attend a Kechara event,or attend Rinpoche’s dharma talk. They are indeed very devoted students!
    Look!As I am typing this, I received an SMS update on the news of them blogging in UK under the sun and the news is already on Tsem Rinpoche’s blog. Talking about “HOT” Press, Kechara sure got a first hand on anything!

    I like seeing Dorje Shugden painting in fauvistic style. The colors are so strong and outstanding. Very nice. Appreacite Rinpoche for sharing Dorje Shugden paintings of various styles. No matter what the form is, it will bring lots of blessing to those who sees the painting.

    Ms Gerbrick was very patient and compassionate by spending her time to listen to Rinpoche said to her. Ms Gerbrick never criticized about Rinpoche’s parents and avoid to give negative effect to Rinpoche. Instead, Ms Gerbrick advised Rinpoche that when people say negative things to him, it is not about him, but it’s about them. This message implied that Ms Gerbrick knew to be sympathic and considerate to others.

    I personally think that in order to be a responsible teacher, one must selflessly devote oneself and always think of how to benefit the students and constantly seek solutions to remove barriers that children face. Ms Gerbrick was one of them as mentioned.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story of Ms Gerbrick. May she has a good rebirth and return in perfect human form to learn dharma at a young age. ��

    Many human beings, including ourselves, are selfish and only care for ourselves. Especially when it comes to situations that are challenging or pose a threat to our comfort zone. In situations like this, something/someone will have to make way, the one with the least priority is in the inevitable receiving end, most of the time. In this case, the poor pets took the blunt. In some other cases, it could be the ailing parents/old folks/someone.

    It is our selfish mind that causes the selfish act and results in harm, pain and suffering on others. When we learn and practice Dharma, we can follow Guru’s teaching to help us tame this selfishness by always thinking for others, put ourselves in the shoes of others. In this way, no way will be left behind, ever.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

    Walter Evans-Wentz was an American anthropologist and writer who was a pioneer in the study of Tibetan Buddhism,He has since introduction and translated a number of Tibetan Buddhism to the Western world. Evans-Wentz is best known for four texts translated from the Tibetan, Amazingly he travelled across India and Sri Lanka covering important religious sites to study the history, customs and religious traditions of the country, and also collected a large number of important Pali manuscripts. It was then later donated to Stanford University. He has even worked as a translator with Alexandra David-Néel and so forth producing ,forewording a few interesting books before his passing.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading.

    Very interesting article……gave me a clear defination and understanding of God and religion.I agree with Bishop John Spong….if we all have qualities of love, compassion. caring ,tolerance, generosity, kindness and a sense of empathy to benefits others, God or Buddha will be within us. I can understand much better of the insight.
    I admired Bishop John Spong for his courage to speak up and explained to others about what he thought .Do hope more people will open their minds and judge for themselves the truth of it based on logic thinking and teachings. I am glad ,i am on the right path.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting post.

    Rabindranath Tagore is an extraordinary individual. He expounds humanity through the many arts, literature, drama, songs, education and etc. I believe it is his sensitive and sentimental nature that gives rise to his many creative writings and artwork. However, he is also determined in his approach, as we can see how he ensures that his drama get executed to the dot, and this approach in politics.

    Rabindranath Tagore is well respected around the world. It can be seen by him being a Nobel award winner, and having monument, bust, street names and marking of him in Moscow, Prague London, Berlin and the birth place of Shakespeare. He is the only non-European who is without contemperory when it comes to art and culture during that era.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

    To me, the single largest contradiction found in many religions and their implementation (by men) is the way how one’s action and the consequences are governed and judged by a someone. This someone has the power to grant love, good fortune, take away all the sins and also punish anyone who has committed bad deeds; all in ONE lifetime.

    It presents a huge unanswerable question, especially for people who met with huge misfortune, and for people who suffered from birth, who are born poor, born sick or handicapped, etc. Are they the abandoned and forgotten children and thus have to go through this single ONE lifetime with great pain and anguish?

    It is, thereby, easier to reconcile the disparity in life when we understand the Law of Cause and Effect. When we do a particular action, we should expect a certain result. Even though we cannot determine the time frame of which the outcome will arrive, we can rest assured that it will. As the Law of Cause and Effect works in parallel with reincarnation, we can expect the result to continue or take place in the next life, or thereon.

    Therefore, we can explain the disparity of birth. And in a big way, Law of Cause and Effect encourages everyone to take responsibility for their own action, because no one, not even the special someone, can remove our sins for us. The only person who can right our wrong and is ourselves.

    Law of Cause and Effect and Reincarnation are essential teachings in Buddhism, which attracted me to this religion, as they provide me with good, solid answers to many of my questions about life.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us.Rinpoche always advice us to go on pilgrimage to Holy places with concentrated powerful energy to collect merits. plant dharma seeds and be blessed The best pilgrimage place is where our Guru is and we can transform our mind following his advices and instructions sincerely. That is Kechara Forest Retreat which is near us in Malaysia.
    Beautiful memes in different languages to share with us.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .From these memes and the photo taken more than 30 years ago tell us a thousand word how much love and Guru devotion Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche wll never change.
    Non matter what happen we should not abandon our Guru. Go all the way to learn ,practice Dharma from our Guru Rinpoche is an inspiration for us .
    Thanks again with folded hands

    Dorje Shugden practice is discouraged since the 5th Dalai Lama until recent decades HH the 14TH Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, this practice is common, support and continues to spread far and wide in many countries including Tibet, India, China as well as the Western. Herewith the 2 interesting articles that support Mr Glenn H. Mullin’s view on the attempt to discourage Dorje Shugden practice is not very successful instead it become famous and well known by everyone.

    1. 10 Holy Dorje Shugden Statues around the World:
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/10-holy-dorje-shugden-statues-in-the-world.html
    Build Buddha statue with the bigger size bring much beneficial to all sentient beings.
    The largest Dorje Shugden statue, 24 feet tall, commissioned by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and currently housed in Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong, Pahang. In mid 2015, the statue was consecrated by Dorje Shugden in trace through the famed Panglung Oracle.

    2. They were not wrong
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-were-not-wrong.html
    Many great teachers, masters, yogis, geshes, mahasiddhas, lineage holders of various schools of Buddhism (especially Sakya lineage) that practiced or was affiliated closely to Dorje Shugden. Some of the senior monks who have been practicing Dorje Shugden for over 70 years and have no intention of giving up their practice of this protector. Besides, many great masters eg HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche and many others would also have thousands of students (both lay and ordained) in Tibet and all over the world rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting writings by Mr Glenn H. Mullin.

    It is mind-boggling to read the extraction starting from page 208 of the book by Mr. Glenn Mullin. There are a few points from here that arouse my curiosity to read the book in full.

    One of it is why the Nyingmapa shamans failed to exorcise and pacify the spirit of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, but the Gelugpa shaman monks succeeded in pacifying and transforming him (his spirit) into Dorje Shugden.

    Another noteworthy point would be that Dorje Shugden practice caught on and became widely practiced by many monasteries, DESPITE the discouragement by the 5th Dalai Lama. This is very telling of the position of Dalai Lama as a spiritual leader.

    Based on Mr. Glen Mullin’s research, the popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice grew over time, in particular during late 1800 when four Dalai Lamas died young. I find it highly unusual to link this uncommonly short lifespan of Dalai Lamas to the growing popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Bearing in mind that even aristocratic families developed the strong faith in DS practice during this period.

    As we gain glimpses into the feud between Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen / Dorje Shugden and the Dalai Lamas, it becomes apparent that the validity, effectiveness, and propitiation of a Protector’s practice does not depend on Dalai Lama’s endorsement.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice is prevalent among both monasteries as well as laities, particularly the aristocratic families. From here, we can deduce that Dorje Shugden’s practice, is efficient and works in both spiritual and secular terms. Otherwise, why would monasteries and aristocratic families propitiate the practice?

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this insightful sharing.

    First time coming across this Ganapati deity, we are fortunate and able to practice in our daily lives. All because of Rinpoche we got the apportunity to practice it.
    Well said beautiful daily prayer to Ganapati, which I intend to print it out.
    In life as we goes along the path, there are many obstacles and challenges we got to go through but when we are in Dharma we will somehow manage with it. It’s a wonderful to learn these beneficial and powerful Ganapati practice with our Guru blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling these beautiful and powerful prayers for us especially for those who need help to overcome obstacles with authorities and so forth.

    I do have regrets over the times but ever since I let go all ,I felt much lighter, happier,
    been able to concentrate on things which will benefit others. Learned from mistakes, experience and regrets , to move on to the next chapter in life. .I keep reminding myself not to repeat and never regrets for what the actions or things done ,trying to improve and learn something new along the path. I always like to read beautiful and meaningful quotes to remind myself. Since joining Kechara,I have learned more knowledge ,understands better in life and to thank our Guru for what I have learned and still learning (Life’s true gift lies in your freedom to design it beautifully. With each rise of the sun, you get to chase the opportunity to fill your days with meaning—to live your life the way you choose)…quoted
    Thank you Dauk May for sharing these beautiful teachings with us.

    Its heart breaking after looking through those pictures of pets ,poorly managed by their owners or maybe they thought it will be safe or left them to die in the terrible powerful hurricanes. The pet dogs were left helpless and the owner just saves themselves not realising or forgotten about their pets. Dogs been chained ,kept in their cage or left alone helpless unattended.
    I am glad many people voiced up these issues as pets are human too, pets deserved much better treatment, care ,love and hugs. The owner should have think of a better way instead leaving their pet dogs to suffer. At least free them gave them a chance or put in a higher ground. Leaving them behind in bad times is bad enough then in the first place should not taken the pets in.
    It’s a wonderful news that the authorities concerned are doing more to help those suffering dogs and taking stern actions against those irresponsible owner.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post and had it shared with my friends

    Rejoice!
    This is wonderful to see the team, who has followed Rinpoche’s advice very well to work out and organized the weekly Bigfoot Flea Market in Bentong, Pahang. Now, it has blossomed into a Bigfoot store at its own shop lot building. Furthermore, its Facebook has been created and updated the latest posts at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bigfoot%E3%81%AEstorage-%E9%87%8E%E4%BA%BA%E3%81%AE%E5%82%A8%E5%AD%98%E5%B1%8B/129014147685241?ref=br_rs

    This is one of the creative ideas and skillful means from Rinpoche in spreading the dharma to many others. Now, another interesting and it was my first time to see these Bigfoot cookies. These cookies are rewarded to the customers in return for their loyalty.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

He was known by one of his names which was Guru Deva Rinpoche and I had the blessings to meet him quite a few times. He was guru of both my mother and father. Guru Deva Rinpoche was a high Mongolian lama and lived over 100 years old. He was one of the kindest persons I have ever met and he was very well known to be an emanation of Gyenze. He joked alot and was extremely devoted to his teacher. We had many private conversations with him and he made an indelible mark in my mind and in my heart. I think of him often. Tsem Rinpoche

I pity men who occupy themselves exclusively with the transitory in things and lose themselves in the study of what is perishable, since we are here for this very end- that we may make the perishable imperishable, which we can do only after we have learned how to approach both.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(This quote is very powerful from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He seems to be a powerful thinker and can think beyond daily and ordinary thoughts. Like I shared, only the study of dharma is going to lead to the imperishable. Any other studies of this world only are temporarily beneficial which is perishable. Of course he is not referring to dharma, but he realized ordinary pursuits leads to perishability. If he knew dharma, he would see the vastness of Buddha\'s omniscience.  Tsem Rinpoche)

(1st photo) Kyabje Lati Rinpoche in the centre and Ven Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende on the extreme right. After the unfair ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners was forcibly instituted by Tibetan leadership onto the people and monasteries, the monasteries split. Over 600 monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery left and set up Shar Gaden Monastery. The Tibetan leadership did their best to get the authorities to close Shar Gaden Monastery but Shar Gaden had registered so there was nothing Tibetan leadership can do. It was very sad. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende left Gaden Shartse Monastery to be the abbot of the newly formed Shar Gaden Monastery in South India where they can continue Dorje Shugden practice. Prior to the ban Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende can meet up, share and be close as they all had been very close. After the ban this was not allowed anymore. Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people had to be segregated. They cannot mix. The previous prime minister of the Tibetan exiled government said that Dorje Shugden people and non Dorje Shugden people are like the mustache and the mouth and it has to be separated. Tsem Rinpoche

You can see in this 2nd photo, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche blessing a child and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende standing next to the child.

ou can save this rare thangka of 1,000 armed Heruka. I\'ve never seen this thangka or any of this form before and it\'s the first time. You can print out or keep or use. I found this online and it\'s beautiful. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned this Heruka 30 years ago to us and since then I have never seen this in painting or statue at all till now. He has many legs and many faces too. Very special and unique. Seeing Heruka or thinking of Heruka plants the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream. Tsem Rinpoche

This is Venerable Lhakpa Tsering from Tibet. He has passed away a few years back of natural causes and as he was older. He was one of the high ranking and official oracle of Dorje Shugden, Namka Barzin, Kache Marpo and several other high protectors. He was famous in Tibet for his correct trance of Dorje Shugden and extremely powerful clairvoyance advice of Dorje Shguden. He has been taking trance since Tibet. In 1959 he left Tibet for India and settled in Kalimpong. He continued to take trance in Kalimpong of Dorje Shugden for government officials, local persons, high lamas, monasteries, nuns, monks and even foreigners. For over 40 years his wonderful oracular ability to take trance and give advice and prophecies has benefited so many people. He was trained and blessed as an oracle by the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche of Sera Jey Monastery. I\'ve had a chance to stay at his house, meet him and see him in trance. It was a great blessing and amazing experience. Tsem Rinpoche

Why seek anything else when you have the illustrious practice of Vajra Yogini from the lineage of the Crazy Wisdom Mahasiddha Naropa? Nothing in samsara created by ordinary men can surpass the practice of Vajra Yogini elucidated to us by the Buddha. Nothing in samsara’s knowledge no matter how incredible can surpass the knowledge embodied in the dharma by the Buddha. Samsara knowledge is limited. When we study Buddha’s knowledge (Dharma) it guarantees our future with no limitations. Spend more time studying dharma than samsaric knowledge. Why even compare? Surrender samsara as death and loss are it’s only results and engage in Dharma practice all the way. Vajra Yogini is dharma and dharma is Vajra Yogini. Give everything for Vajra Yogini’s practice. Start now as a preliminary practice even without initiation (blog article: Starting on Vajra Yogini Now- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4395). Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. 

Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. 

This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery. ~Tsem Rinpoche

This picture is of KB lovingly holding Mumu while he tries to stand up. I was in the room with them and someone else took this picture. It is a very sad and poignant picture because just a short while after this picture was taken, Mumu passed away with all of us present. This was the last picture of my little Mumu alive. We immediately did puja for Mumu and he is sorely missed by many as he touched our lives deeply. Tsem Rinpoche

Practising makes you better at something. If you keep practising in laziness, that is what you will become good in. If you keep practising generosity, that is what you will develop. Keep practising in what you want to become good at.

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

    Holy Words of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
    Over 30 years ago, I made my choice that His Holiness Zong Rinpoche is my root guru and I have never wavered from it since or had second thoughts or doubted. There can never be a flaw or negative quality in anything that comes from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/kyabje-zong-rinpoches-advice-on-dorje-shugdens-practice.html
