    In Australia there is a famous saying
    do not piss in anyones pocket

    the translation to english means
    do not say sweet things to someone for benefit
    of you and yours

    Where we live it is as if through our understanding of indigenous voice
    and vision and the nasty way the english stole the country away from the indigenous ones that time is near where we can ask everyone to not visit here and let this island repair itself
    Australia is not designed to have 100 million people we have hundreds of billions of sentient beings and animals we need to protect to become the lungs of the future of the world . check your science dont come here ,

    Since Rinpoche began speaking about the Dorje Shugden practice in public, there have been detractors and critics who have directed insults, vulgarities and violent remarks towards Rinpoche.

    Encouragingly however, there have also been many positive comments and messages of support for Rinpoche. We, as Rinpoche’s students, have collected them here, to give encouragement and inspiration to everyone who continues to receive verbal and physical abuse for their practice and beliefs. We rejoice in people’s ability to look at the facts and evidence, and decide for themselves if Dorje Shugden is good or not.

    Some may ask why His Holiness did not reveal his practice during his tenure as the Gaden Tripa. In fact, His Holiness had all along not been happy with the Dorje Shugden ban but did not speak against it. Realising the preciousness of his position, he refused to act in a manner that would stain the reputation of the office he held. Thus he waited until he became an ‘ordinary’ monk again, before making his practice known so that any attacks would be personal to him, and not to the position. Actions like these make it clear to us that His Holiness is without ego, valuing Dharma above politics, and it is clear this attitude has influenced his most loyal and closest students.

    “You are a Geshe and you know Dharma, you understand Dharma, and you should not be attached. Therefore, you have died and you have turned into a being here that is unhappy and causing suffering to others. I would like to release you from this and have you enter the entourage of Dorje Shugden to become one of the ministers and assistants because you are quite powerful, and you are quite learned, and you could be of assistance to the Buddhadharma and the growth of the Buddhadharma. Would you like to do that?”

    For Ming HY –

    Dear Ming,

    Thank you so much for your kind message!

    It is very true that people are using the Dorje Shugden practise as a platform to get back at Rinpoche because they do not have anything substantial that proof their hate speech towards Rinpoche and Kechara.

    A dharma centre is open for people from all walks of life, people come, people go; some stay and improve, some improved and leave, some stay and do not change, of course some leave without change also. Obviously, it is solely the choice that individuals had made. The question is why make a choice and then put the blame onto people in the dharma centre?

    In our case, people who have left did have good merits and karma to be in Rinpoche’s mandala doing something meaningful and beneficial in their lives, and whatever time, efforts they have put in within that period of time did not gone into waste, many are benefited because of them. Isn’t it better to think about all the good things one has done than to give in to the negative thoughts that one has?

    Negative thoughts can arise from anger, jealousy, bitterness etc. due to one refusing to see one’s flaws. When they refuse to see within, they started to blame externally, and conveniently to those who had kindly pointed that out to them. The extreme cases are those that you’ve mentioned.

    We will continue to protect Rinpoche and His precious works and take all necessary actions to do so. On the other hand, we appreciate people, especially those who had been benefited by Rinpoche, to please come forward to show your support by leaving comment here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-want-to-kill-me.html, share your kind thoughts about Rinpoche and Kechara, so that more and more people are aware of how selfless, kind and compassionate Rinpoche is.

    Again, I thank you for your kind comment and please share more with us if you can.

    With much appreciation,
    Pastor Adeline

    Before I pass away, I wish to get as many teachings, practices, meditations and rites on Dorje Shugden out as much as possible to the world. Dorje Shugden has many beneficial practices that are varied but with one goal (removing obstacles and enlightenment) to suit the various karmic inclinations of sentient beings. Bringing Dorje Shugden to many in order to relieve some of their suffering has been a passion of mine for decades. It’s just in the past we are ‘not allowed’ to speak about it. But you know what? As you get older, you fear less, worry less and give much less credence to ‘authorities’ and scorn from others who don’t like what you are doing. My motivation for this is good and I will do it. My heart tells me to do this and I will share my knowledge about Dorje Shugden to many who are karmically ready for Him. I do this with all humility, care and sincerity to benefit others. When I see others in problems it really moves me to do something. I am ordinary and I can’t do much. But Dorje Shugden is Manjushri in the form of a helpful guardian angel and protector and not ordinary. If we put our heart, practice and sincerity into Him, He will help us. If I can bring Dorje Shugden to many, then this is my legacy. The many other incredible teachings by Buddha and Tsongkapa many other great lamas are bringing to the world. They are doing a great job and I pay homage to them, but I will bring Dorje Shugden. I don’t do this for any political reasons, financial gains or prestige but simply it will benefit others and that is what I live for. I’ve always committed myself to Dorje Shugden for only spiritual reasons the day my Teacher assigned Him to me 30 years back. It is for spiritual reasons I keep Him close to me and introduce to you all. May you be benefitted always. ~Tsem Rinpoche.

    I am saddened to hear about such threats against our beloved guru who has only shown love and care to all, including those that attack him. Rinpoche has to go through so much to bring the Dharma and benefit to so many. Having read many of the comments, I am astounded that these ex students some of whom served Rinpoche very closely for years, and received much teachings and kindness, and could just turn around and literally backstab our beloved Guru. Did they not learn anything during their stint? Their recent actions seem to completely devoid any sincerity in their Dharma practice when they were with Kechara. To turn around and threaten Rinpoche based on DS practice is not acceptable. It seems that some have much anger and resentment, and are using this platform to “get back” with whatever they are dissatisfied with in life.
    However, it is not logical that anyone practicing any form of Buddhism would behave in such a way if they truly understood the basic law of Karma. I pray that they they may find peace within themselves, but also pray that the ban to Dorje Shudgen is lifted soon as this cannot be an excuse for others to use it to attack others in such a disturbingly aggressive and violent manner.

    how gracefully you Let go of things not meant for you.

    @Meng
    Thank you for your concern but as was mentioned, the names are on public platforms and the admins have no intentions to incite hate upon these people but to raise awareness of what kind of statements we have been receiving. I think people should be aware as you are talking of death threats or at the very least, the threat of violence. As practitioners of compassion, we cannot just sit idly by because that would mean that we condone or even encourage such actions. By posting it up, the very least would be that these people be wary of what they post and how they express themselves. I am sure you will understand that.

    For Meng – These posts were published on bigger social network platforms such as Facebook for all to see and is made public. The reason why these are posted on Rinpoche’s blog is so that these perpetrators are made known so that they do not create further damage. It is true that we need to be compassionate but being compassionate does not mean to stand still and wait for potential harm to come onto us. These posts also serve both as a proof of the alleged threat that the party is making.

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 person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services. The authentic and beneficial oracle tradition of Tibet is 1,000 year old. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche

我们找寻一位上师或灵修导师,加入一个道场或研修佛法的理由纯粹是为将佛陀教诲中的方法,吸收并融入我们的心中。要达到心与法合一,我们一定得透过实践佛法教诲才能做到,而从中所获的成果,必然将利益我们自身,以及我们所遇见的每一个人。~ 詹杜固活佛 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/Cco0j8Tz3 From: June Tang (Khjb)

佛教道场不是个让你找寻奇迹般的解决方法的地方,因为你所面对的种种问题,都源自你错误行为中的无明或执念。你不能做尽坏事、大难临头了,才急急赶到某个道场,求个马上解决难题的“万灵丹” ,而你在求不得的时候又感到气恼……~詹杜固活佛 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/Cco2xooMM From: June Tang (Khjb)

All the homeless whom I spoke to said something in common: for the first few months that they are out on the streets, they were too shy and distraught to even look up. All that they see is just feet going back and forth all day. It takes months for reality to sink in before they can look up, let alone look at a stranger in the eye and talk to them. DR.
