Dear friends,

When we enter the dharma we should find every excuse and method to improve our minds, habits and thinking. We should always find excuses to succeed! We cannot enter dharma and be exactly unchanged year after year. We cannot keep asking for more time to change. After all, it’s not up to any of our friends to grant more time. Time is short and we are running out of it. We cannot blame the methods either. If you have a better method, then by all means apply it. Don’t be lazy about transformation for the better, blaming method because it’s an excuse. If you don’t find the method suitable, then find another method and make sure you transform. Don’t complain, write to others, talking about it over and over. Just remain silent and change. Complaining is buying time to not change and looking for sympathies to justify lack of change perhaps. You don’t abandon transformation blaming method as the reason. If you abandon transformation, then that was your real intention and not the unsuitability of methods. If you’re hungry, you don’t stay hungry just because the food presented is unsuitable. Find different food. Just because a certain school’s teaching methods doesn’t exactly suit you, you don’t stop learning. You don’t remain ignorant blaming methods. You don’t stop learning. Find another method within the school or at home or otherwise. Learning is your goal. In the case of dharma, transformation is the goal. Be quick about it as the time you have left to live is shorter than the time you have lived for most already. No matter what, don’t waste time.

I am most happy to see these Kecharians take vegetarian vows. You are not doing me or anyone else a favor. But you are doing yourself a favor and the animals you save. You have heard the cries and anguish of so many animals abused and butchered just for us to eat when we don’t need it. Thank you. You also become a inspiration to others and good example also. To let go of one attachment (taste buds) in order to integrate compassion for others in this case animals is truly spiritual. Spirituality is not how much we learn or how many years we were in dharma or who is our guru, but how much we have transformed with proof positive actions and results. I wish to have more and more of this type of messages like I received from Mr. Tat Ming below.

Congratulations to these Kecharians. I am very happy. Thank you Pastor Yek Yee for dispensing your kind sharing. I was very happy to receive this message and had to blog it to share my joy. I have a big smile on my face for all of you and the animals you showed your deep compassion towards. My deepest respects to all of you for doing this also.

In the discussion, we talked about how to make it become a good ACTION except just sit together watching the video and sharing the teaching which Rinpoche tried to deliver to us. After end of discussion session all the Puja teams want to take the vegetarian vow in different time commitment. Freon is the one who very enthusiastic to do coordinate for this vegetarian vow ceremony. She is very helpful to make sure anything going well in the ceremony.

 Making a good motivation

 

 Pastor Yek Yee is a very kind lady, always thinking of ways to help others. Here, she is coordinating a phone call, web conference and live audience all at once to give them the vow to be vegetarian. Amazing multitasking!

A Message from Tat Ming

Dear Rinpoche,

Hope this message finds Rinpoche well.

I am pleased to inform Rinpoche that I have taken the vegetarian vow for life this evening 15 Oct 2014 at Kechara House Main Prayer Hall. Jerry Sito, Yen Pin and I have taken the vegetarian vow together.

Pastor Yek Yee briefed us on setting our motivation, defining the boundaries for the vow and making the dedications before we commenced our prayers.

We performed the *Ganden Lhagyama followed by offering of Serkym and mantra to Lord Setrap.

I have not hesitated to take up the vegetarian vow because I have been a vegetarian since the end of 2002 after I had taken refuge with the Three Jewels. However, it had not occured to me to take up the vegetarian vow until today.

Something auspicious had happened to ripen my positive imprints causing me to take up the vow! I am truly grateful and happy that this had happened through the blessing of Rinpoche.

I had vowed to be vegetarian till the end of my life. I dedicate all the merits accumulated from taking and upholding this vegetarian vow as follows:

1) for the long life and stable health of Rinpoche.

2) for the continued turning of the Dharma Wheel by Rinpoche.

3) for the fulfillment of Rinpoche’s every wish.

4) for the swift manifestation of KECHARA Animal Sanctuary.

5) May all sentient beings be free from their sufferings and causes of sufferings swiftly.

6) May all sentient beings find the supreme happiness of liberation and enlightenment swiftly

Thank You Rinpoche for your blessing and kind attention.

Humbly your student,
Tat Ming

I like when people listen to the dharma, apply and transform their minds. My methods are for you to transform your mind. If you have a better method, then by all means apply it. Don’t abandon mind training using an excuse you cannot adapt to the methods. The issue is whether your mind is transforming or not. Don’t abandon the teachings on mind transformation blaming methods. Because then method was not to blame but your excuse to give up something projected as difficult.  If you have a better method, apply and make sure your mind is transforming as time is short.~Tsem Rinpoche

Uncle Eddie 

To  H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche  02 Nov 2014 

Thank you Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, I have this opportunity to take the Kecharian Vegetarian Vows. 

My complete change-over to being a vegetarian was at the profound request of the compassionate guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche a few years ago.  This was indeed the best change-over in my mundane life and also for the benefit of all animal beings.  I am extremely glad that I will be taking vegetarian with a vow now, as I have not taken one for the past few years. 

Thank you once again Rinpoche, for all the kindness and care you have given me all these years.  May whatever merits accumulated from the taking and upholding  of the vow be dedicated for your long and healthy life to continue turning the wheel of dharma for all sentient beings. 

With folded hands 
Uncle Eddie 

 

Message from Uncle Eddie 

“A message of Appeal to Those Who Are of Merciful” (for the taking of vegetarian vows.) 

As His Holiness The Dalai Lama has said, “For all of us in this planet, none can live forever, so while we are here, we should try to have a good heart and make something positive and useful of our lives.  Whether we live just a few years or a whole century, it would be truly regrettable and sad if we were to spend that time aggravating the problems that afflict other people, animals and the environment.”  

The most important thing, therefore, before we go, is to be a good human being by following our Rinpoche’s most compassionate advice to take the vegetarian vows for the benefit of all animal beings!   Animals are actually intelligent living beings too, and they can feel, think and suffer like humans do!  As such, it is time to eliminate the impact of the suffering of animals in ending up on our humans’ dinner plate, by us taking a joyful step to adopt a “Vegetarian lifestyle” through all the year.  By so doing, one can reduce ones’ karma of killing and help to strength ones sympathy towards the pain and suffering of all animal beings.  On Mani Padme Hung. 

Your sincerely, Uncle Eddie

 

Kok Wah Ying 

Dear Rinpoche, 

Thank you Rinpoche for guiding me to make right and good choices in life, including by not taking meat and be a vegerarian. After few year of not taking meat, today I take my vegetarian vows in front of Three Jewels. 

I humbly dedicate any merits arise from not harming animals to Rinpoche’s good health and continue guiding us, to have all Rinpoche’s wishes manifest, and my parents’ good health and opening the seeds of Dharma. 

Thank you. 

Love, 

Wah Ying

 

 

Cynthia Ng 

Dear Rinpoche, 

Wish Rinpoche doing well. 

I am Cynthia Ng and I would like to share with Rinpoche today I have taken vegetarian vows together with 17 Kecharians and friends in Kechara House gompa at 10am (2/11/14). 

Pastor Yek Yee briefed us on setting up motivation before start the ceremony. 

I have committed taken 3 months vegetarian vows although I am not take life vegetarian vows now. I want to create a good cause for myself to move one step forward be kind to all sentient beings by action. I believe actions speak louder than words. 

I eat less meat after I came back from Hong Kong attended Robert Loosecat’s funeral. The moment I saw the corpse inside coffin, immediately I think that exactly all meats that I had eaten. I had eaten corpse for so many years. 

The different is humans was death because of sickness, accident, old age etc. The meats that I ate was force to slaughter to fulfill my desire. I was so bad! 

Until that day we have blog chat sharing about Earthlings together Pastor Yek Yee and Puja House team members, that was moved my heart deeply that I must do something meaningful NOW. 

Thank you Pastor Yek Yee always concern and care about our now and future life like Rinpoche always do to us. Remind and teach us again and again.  We can control what we want to be now and future. 
I believe through by taken vegetarian vows today, I am moving one step closing to practise compassion by action not harming sentient beings. 

I would like to dedicate the merit to Rinpoche’s good health, long life. May Rinpoche’s dharma work spread to ten directions. 

Thank you Rinpoche’s dharma teaching always to teach us be kind to all sentient beings. 

With folded hands & love,  
Cynthia Ng

 

May Ong 

Dear Tsem Rinpoche 

This is an auspicious, priviledge and meritorious day for me to be able to take vegetarian vows under the Three Jewels and PastorYek Yee to dedicate it to your long life and good health to continue the turning of dharma. 

It was not my intention initially to take these vows but it’s motivated by realisation to live long and be healthy to continue doing dharma work for collection of merits and to offer my practice to my precious Guru. 

It has made become more self aware of my practice and how little I have done but with this motivation, I will continue to strife for enlightenment to benefit others, just like you. 

With folded hands 
Thank you dear Rinpoche for my life & do keep well. 

May Ong 
Your student

 

Chong Pee Bee 

Dear Rinpoche, Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us to have compassion for all sentient beings.   I confess that I had been cruel to animals.  Sometimes I feel that I couldn’t find my compassion.  By taking the 3 months non-meat vows, I hope I can eventually transform to be a better person, and continue with the non-meat diet. 

I would like to dedicate the merits of taking the 3 months non-meat vows to Rinpoche.   May Rinpoche long life and remain to turn the wheel of dharma. 

With folded hands

Pema Thrinley 

Dear Rinpoche, 

I bow down to your Lotus Feet _/\_. 
I humbly thank you so much for coming back to samsara to help us and show us the way out of this self centered world. Your kindness and patience to make us learn though we fall back into the same habit repeatedly is the most precious dharma to encounter La. 

Today I feel so blessed to take the Vegetarian vow for whole life under your guidance. Thank you  Rinpoche for creating the platform like stunning Kechara foundation whose energy consistently touch the hearts of limitless beings far and near through your kind and most compassionate dharma students. I fully dedicate this special vow for your Long Life and Stable health Rinpoche. May your wishes to benefit all sentient beings come true. May all sentient beings gain realization even on hearing your Precious Name. _/\_ 

Humbly Your Student, 
Pema Thinley

 

 

Erik Yeh & Katheline Yap

Dear Rinpoche,

I hope you are keeping well. I would like to inform Rinpoche, that I have stopped manufacturing leather about 2 months ago and I have also found a suitable buyer for my company. In fact for the past few months, I have been working toward the smooth handover of my company. If there are no complications, then by the end of December this year,  I will be completely out of the leather trade. I must admit that it is a bit difficult for me to adjust since it has always been a family business running for 3 generations. I guess over time, I will learn to generate more compassion towards animals.  
Giving up eating meat is the easy part. And so is giving up the leather business. The real challenge for me now is to calm my mind by focusing on my daily practices/prayers. I will not hide the fact that I am nervous and scared. But I also remember what Rinpoche said when I was fortunate enough to have had an audience with your Eminence. And I thank you Rinpoche, for guiding me with simple instructions. 

This Sunday, as I prepare to take vegetarian vows for the rest of my life, I would like to dedicate whatever little merits I have towards Rinpoche’s good health and for the swift manifestation of Medicine Buddha Hill at KFR. 

With folded hands, 
Erik Yeh 

************************************

Dear Rinpoche, 

I hope you are you doing well. 

I am taking veg vows for a year and I would like to dedicate it to Rinpoche’s long life and also to my parent’s good health. 

With folded hands, 
Kathaline Yap

 

Jim Yeh 

Dear Rinpoche, 
I hope this letter finds your Eminence in the best of health and spirit. 

I am writing to inform Rinpoche that my siblings Mavis, Erik and myself have taken the lifetime vegetarian vow. The ceremony was conducted by Pastor Yek Yee. 

Ever since I started following Rinpoche’s teachings in 2012, I became more aware of the suffering of animals, I stopped eating meat right away. I would like to dedicate all the accumulated merits from holding the vow to Rinpoche’s long life, towards the fulfilment of Rinpoche’s wishes & prayers and towards the swift manifestation of the Medicine Buddha Hill. 

With folded hands and warmest regards, 
Jim Yeh 

 

 

 

Mavis Yeh 

Dear Rinpoche, 

Hope Rinpoche is doing well. I started turning vegetarian after a dream (when I was 13 and a Buddha statue spoke asking me to be a vegetarian). Although I have been a vegetarian for two decades, I always thought that it was just to refrain from killing. However, since following Rinpoche’s blog, I am more aware of the sufferings and abuse that the animals go through and to develop compassion for them (which is new to me, because all those years of being vegetarian became mundane). 

I am grateful to have this opportunity to take vegetarian vows along with my family including Erik, Kathy and Jim and other fellow dharma brothers and sisters.Taking vegetarian vows has now added more meaning to my life. 

I would like to dedicate the merit to Rinpoche’s long life and for the swift manifestation of MBH. 

With folded hands, 

Mavis Yeh

 

Lee Torres 

Dear Tsem Rinpoche, 

Thank you for making it possible for people to take vegetarian vows. I have been vegetarian for a total of 8 years. The first time was when I was 16 years old, for almost 2 years. Later again I became vegetarian again when I was 27 years old. 

My motivation for becoming vegetarian the first time was because I didn’t want to be a cause of suffering for other beings. When I was 18 and on my way to college, I felt pressured to want to fit in and I started eating meat again. It took me almost 9 years to become vegetarian again. My biggest regret was to stop being vegetarian the first time. 

I hope to receive these vegetarian vows in order to leave a deep imprint in my mindstream. By receiving them and holding them, I hope that in my next life, I immediately resume being a vegetarian again and not waste time. I want to create the causes for continually being a source of happiness to others, rather than being a source of their harm. By taking these vows, I also want to dedicate the merit to the long life of my teachers and all those whose activities are meant to benefit countless beings. Thank you again 

Best regards, 
Lee Torres 

 

Caroline Cheah 

Dear Rinpoche, Thank you and may you encourage, inspire and help more sentient beings and may all receive and practise dharma endlessly and whole heartedly. World peace.

Freon Tee 

Dear Rinpoche, 

Thanks for the teaching us not to harm the sentient being and not to create more killing through your teachings. 

As a human being, I have learned that we are still “free” to choose not to eat meat.  And also we are able to choose not to harm the animals and planet earth.  

May the action of taking life long vegetarian vows dedicate to Rinpoche long life, May the lamp of Lama Tsongkhapa shine throughout ten directions, May resources for all the project in  Kechara Forest Retreat manifest now and may all Kecharian stay healthy. 

Humbly your student 
Freon

Dear Rinpoche,  I dedicate this vegetarian vow merits to Rinpoche’s long life and stable health.  May Rinpoche’s every wish be fulfilled.  May all sentient beings be liberated.   

Thank you Rinpoche 

Much love and gratitude

    Rejoice for all who have taken vegetarian vow. All of them are very compassionate and willing to let go of the attachment on meat for the benefit of other beings and reduce the killing on animals. It’s amazing and heart warming to see Liang Jing being the youngest in the group to take vegetarian vow too. So young but already have such big heart.

  2. Pastor Han Nee on Jul 11, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    It’s amazing how people will just open up to embrace vegetarianism. This morning, I was at my doctor’s clinic to get the results of my blood test. Everything was fine from sugar to cholesterol, no fatty acids,etc.That’s what a vegetarian diet for years does for a person.

    My doctor chipped in and told me she herself has gone almost meatless -she avoids pork and chicken. Meat,she was told by her Buddhist sister, is most unhealthy. For one thing, when animals are about to die, they release adrenalin and negative substances into their bloodstream as a result of their intense fear and anger, etc at point of death.

    We also have to think of the hormones pumped into the animals to make them grow big faster!

    Beyond health, the most enduring mindfulness we cultivate in being vegetarian is compassion and empathy for the animals who suffer tremendously when they are being killed.

    It is just amazing how all these people are taking this vow together at the same time. They inspire many others to be following their footsteps, especially for young Liang Jing. Through Liang Jing, I believe that many would respect him for his faith and determination at such a young age.

    Whenever I see him at KFR, he would always be helping people and not creating any trouble for anyone at all. I remember Wah Ying telling me before that Liang Jing would do his daily sadhana by himself without anyone reminding him. He would also ask Wah Ying for more prayers to do whenever he was ready for more. After asking for those prayers, he would also do it every day. He is just such a young and inspiring young child. The first time when I say Liang Jing at a puja in KH I was shocked, he could sit still and chant all the prayers with all the rest of us, unlike the children of his age.

  5. Lucas Roth on Dec 2, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    I am so happy that more people in Kechara are becoming vegetarian, it is a extremely good practice because it saves lives and trains your self discipline to not eat the meat if you liked it before you chose to become a vegetarian. I am a vegetarian for my life now and i wasn’t born a vegetarian. I became a vegetarian four years ago to save animals after the watching the documentary called earthlings. Please watch that video if you haven’t seen it already.

    More on my point on how being vegetarian saves lives, it is because so many animals die everyday because of people eating meat and wanting something tasty on their plate. What gives us the right to kill other lives and eat them because we are “better”. The ways of killing the animals are so cruel and they feel every bit of pain that we give them. They don’t even see daylight before they are killed, they are kept in such small spaces where they break bones and die and they are killed/burned/cut up when they are conscious.

    I hope these people can benefit Kechara in many ways from now to the future. And I hope they are aware of why they are becoming vegetarian, because there are many lessons behind it. I also hope more people become vegetarian.

  6. Pema Thinley on Nov 6, 2014 at 1:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much _/\_ for your precious Dharma incomparable to any precious thing on the universe. May you live long to Benefit all the ignorant beings like me. We love you and always in our Heart.

  7. Wah Ying on Oct 20, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    Rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry. Yen Pin holds her promise to be a vegetarian for few years and she did not moved by anyone who teased her. Tat Ming becomes vegetarian for many many years since I know him. Jerry follows Rinpoche’s teaching to be kind to animals and be a vegetarian..It’s a good news for them and will inspire many to follow their footsteps. 🙂

  8. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Oct 20, 2014 at 12:49 am

    Thank you Rinpoche ‘ s sharing. Rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry for taking vegetarian vows. They show a good example of Compassion and care to animals being slaughter for fulfil taste bud attachments. Their actions inspired me. I need to improve also as per Rinpoche’s advice.

  9. Low KHJB on Oct 18, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.We rejoice for Tat Ming,Yen Pin and Jerry for their sincere commitment to take up their Vegetarian vows and their pure motivation in doing so.May their action inspire more to follow their path and gain the precious mind transformation along the way in search of the precious dharma.

  10. Li kheng on Oct 18, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    congratulations to tat Ming, Jerry and Yen Pin for making a conscious choice that reflect spiritual advancement. We are fortunate to have a Guru to give us the clear path of Dharma by showing us precise actions we can take to make a difference and grow spiritually. Just FYI: being a vegetarian is one of the easiest method to develop a harmonious and sustainable relationship with the Earth and fellow earthlings.

  11. Edwin Tan on Oct 17, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for teaching us that we should be in control to be able to transform and change for the better, through such simple act of taking vegetarian vows from Tat Ming and group.

    Kudos to Tat Ming, Jerry Sito and Yen Ping for taking the vow, indirectly saving lives of many animals that are slaughtered to satisfy our taste buds…

  12. Lum Kok Luen on Oct 17, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news and also this Dharma teaching of going fully vegetarian. The end result we want is, as you have rightfully put it, to have mind transformation.
    I completely agree with you that whoever comes through Kechara, they will have some effect and there will be a transformation. This applies to me too.

    Rejoice for Tat Ming, Jerry and Yen Pin !!

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

      持戒过候,我觉得很开心,因为我可以影响我身边的亲人很乐意的一起享用素食餐,尤其是我小女儿,无肉不欢的她,知道我持戒后,竟然提议一起去素食馆用餐!现在我发觉她可能被我的影响,吃肉比以前少了,还有我太太肉食也比以前少了好多好多了,这是件让我非常高兴的事 ! 希望将来的日子他们可以一起持终生持素戒! 在此, 再次的向仁波切说声谢谢,让我有此机缘让我受戒 !我也将我所有的善功德,回向给您,希望您长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意,您所有的宏愿尽快达成,祈请常住,一切众生皆可离苦得乐 !

    Congratulations to Jerry Sito, Yen Pin and Lim Tat Ming for taking the vegetarian vow. I’m very happy for them because it is the result of developing compassion for animals. I hope more and more people will become vegetarians as it means there is a growing awareness of cruelty to animals.

  18. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 16, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. Yes, Rinpoche’s consistent teachings, advice and exhortation to us , has always been to transform -to shift our minds from a state of self-grasping to a state of love and care for others. Taking vegetarian vows shows us that we are transforming and becoming better people. We are showing care for other beings and because of care, love and compassion, we will stop whatever action of body, speech or mind, will harm them directly or indirectly.In this case, when we stop eating meat, we stop creating a cause for animals to be slaughtered.

    I rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Ping and Jerry for takin gthe Vegetarian Vow.

  19. Joy on Oct 16, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    Rejoice in Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry’s transformation to take their understanding of compassion to another level of reality. By taking the vegetarian vows, you are increasing the population of vegetarians in this world and adding to creating less demands in the meat food chain and eventually we hope, all businesses that sell meat would change, close down or choose to sell something else. This is how we slowly change the world, through ourselves first. On top of this, by taking on the vegetarian vows, you actually create merits and the causes for one’s longevity, to live a healthy and good life because you’ve chosen to stop taking lives (on your plate). Thank you and I hope many people will be inspired by your actions and do the same 🙂

  20. Patsy on Oct 16, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    I rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry for taking the vegetarian vows. May they inspire others to refrain from taking meat and save the animals from pain and sufferings.

  21. Judy Chen on Oct 16, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the kind advice.
    Transforming our mind is the first & foremost step we must engage ourselves in so as to move forward spiritually.

  22. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 16, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.
    Rejoice for Tat Ming, Jerry and Yin Pin.

    It might be not for me to speak
    It might be not for Thee to seek
    Thus Thou shall find
    In the help Thou givest
    Answer me: It is Love and Grace
    that Thou livest!!!!

  24. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Oct 16, 2014 at 6:34 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your encouragement, motivation and advice for us to look for more ways and methods to succeed in Dharma and improve our minds, habits and thinking. Rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry with their vegetarian vows taken to save many animals from pain and sufferings, and they have shown many people a good example to follow.

  25. Gim Lee on Oct 16, 2014 at 3:16 am

    Rejoice for Tat Ming, Yen Pin and Jerry. They will inspire others to switch to vegetarian diet and eventually take the vows. Their actions are admirable and respectable.

    Bali is a magical Island probably the most well-known and most visited Indonesian island. A part of Indonesia archipelago, Bali owns the panorama and unique culture that make this island an ideal location for a vacation.

    It’s shock to discover people in Bali are eating dog meat. Aside from the cruelty, the greatest shock was to discover that tourists are unwittingly eating dog meat and fueling the mobile dog meat vendors are trawling popular beaches in Bali selling satays from buckets, deliberately not telling people the origin of the meat.

    This is causing shocking animal cruelty over the popular holiday destination and
    definitely putting the local Balinese and foreign tourists’ health at risk .Thanks for the thoughtful sharing and bringing awareness to many.

    Thank you for the informative and historical sharing of The Guangxi Community in Bentong. It’s interesting to know the large Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    A small town famous for its locally produced ginger, durians, tofu puff, bean curd, bean curd puff, fresh vegetables, it has so much more to offer for wandering foodies.

    Success requires hard work, however hard work rewards with much more than success alone. Guangxi people of today are one of the most successful communities in Bentong, producing successful people in every strata of society.

    Great Buton Rinchen Drub’s lifestorys truly inspiring, interesting which I simply love reading over and over again. The Great Buton Rinchen Drub was one of the most erudite of scholars of Tibet. To this day he is well remembered as a prodigious scholar and writer and is Tibet’s most celebrated historian. He catalogued thousands of the Buddhist scriptures and wrote the famous book, the History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. Many Tibetan scholars utilize in their study even as today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Great memories of Rinpoche meeting with Guru Deva Rinpoche a very learned and qualified Lama,that has changed Rinpoche life. He is considered to be the reincarnation of one of the 84 great Mahasiddhas of ancient India. He studied under many great masters as such like Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Yongzin Trijang Dorje Chang, and so forth. We have Tsem Rinpoche today all because of Guru Deva Rinpoche who had contributed towards Rinpoche’s spiritual journey. The journey was tough for Rinpoche , having gone through and had travelled from America to India. Having remained and continued to languish under the terrible conditions in India till he travelled to Nepal and meeting Guru Deva Rinpoche. Everything changed from then on. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin Chow for this sharing.

    Buton Rinchen Drub is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators,writers and proponent of the Kalachakra Tantra. Even as a very young child, Rinpoche exhibited extraordinary abilities. He studied and received many tantric transmissions and empowerments from many other teachers. Well respected by many and was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism. Over the period of his life he composed at least twenty-six prolific volumes of commentaries. His legacy included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He travelled tremendously throughout Tibet and many places giving teachings, empowerments, transmissions, and ordinations at monasteries along the way. Interesting read of a great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Pema Lingpa was a famous saint and siddha of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. In the history of the Nyingma school in Bhutan, Pema Lingpa is second only in importance to Padmasambhava himself. Many auspicious miraculous signs appeared when was born as such even as a child he was indeed extraordinary learning everything from reading and writing to ironwork and carpentry without receiving any instruction. Interesting read of the extraordinary enlightened activities , stories and biography of Pema Lingpa . He was highly regarded by all four of the principal schools of Vajrayana Buddhism. Pema Lingpa spent his life revealing the precious treasures of Guru Rinpoche, giving empowerments and teachings. He composed many religious texts and ritual, gave initiations and even established monasteries . He was known as a discoverer of spiritual treasures. He left a legacy establishing a tradition that endures to this day. He prophesied that in the future he would return as the Buddha Dorjé Nyingpo in the pure land of Pemako.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing of discovering the heart desire numbers. Numerology is the belief in the divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. The heart’s desire is seen as part of the larger picture which includes the life path, expression, date of birth and personality. Each person has different numbers that help them identify who they are and what their purpose in life. Each letters in our name has a message which is hidden and plays a crucial role in our life.

    I think this article will benefits many who are having a very hard time to achieve their dreams and to find out their true passion in their life. I had a good read and happy to discover my heart desire number.

    For sarassitham – For years scientists and experts have been trying hard to get the bottom answers and hard evidence of aliens existing . Finally they did it and very close to the answers through the video….a true evidence. Throughout history, many common myths and legends mention incredible flying machines and how ancient people travelled great distances through the air. I do believe thousands of years ago, ancient mankind was visited by incredible flying machines. There are various places around the world such as the Step pyramid in Saqqara, Egypt, a burial ground in Columbia , Mountain of Solomon and Peru, and many more. All these architectural structure are amazing, how and exactly, did they build those structures those days thousands years ago without modern machineries? Made of millions of precisely hewn stones weighing tons each, even with today’s cranes and other construction equipment, building it would be a very challenging task. Scientists suspect that over centuries aliens have visited Earth. Could it be artifacts of aliens or did ancient humans have extra-terrestrial help ??? It is still a mysteries to this days. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

It is indeed a rare sight to see a person who is able to be selfless at such a deep level in many ways. I do agree that we definitely need more Ms Chens in this world to inspire and to help others.

    Ngawang Wangyal known to many as Geshe Wangyal and the first American lama introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. He was a Buddhist lama and scholar of Kalmyk origin born in Russia. He travelled through Russia to Tibet and spent the next 20 years traveling throughout Asia, learning English and translating . It was during the Chinese invasion he escaped to India and later went to American. Despite the many challenges he faced , he built a monastery been the first temple in the Western hemisphere, sponsored Tibetan monk scholars to assist him in teachings. That’s how Tibetan Buddhism spread in the west. His long list of accomplishments would include pioneering efforts in establishing Tibetan Buddhism’s intellectual bona fides in American academia. During the last several years of his life he worked tirelessly on his final book.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring untold story of how Tibetan Buddhism first came to America through one great Lama.

    Kalarupa is one a wrathful emanation of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, manifesting as a Dharma Protector. Kalarupa displaying as the direct spiritual protector force for all ugliness arising from the true inner spiritual obstacles of fear, hatred, pride and jealousy . As an emanation of Manjushri, Kalarupa’s practice ultimately helps us to destroy ignorance and develop wisdom to overcome our anger and suffering. Interesting read of the story how Kalarupa arose as a Protector. Beautiful pictures of Kalarupa in many forms.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, even though I still have more to understand.

    Animals are sentient beings who like us have feelings, if we hurt them they feel pain and if we treat them with love and care, they would feel loved. The more we human know about the animals the more we feel how amazing they are.

    In Buddhism, offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. One such offerings such as foods. flowers, and so forth. Reading this post gives us a more understanding of some do’s and don’ts regarding food offerings. Offering food is a meritorious act that also reminds us not to be greedy or selfish.
    GREAT guidance , precious teachings and listening from those videos tell us more. All about making offerings, the importance of our motivation and the results of making offerings to the Three Jewels
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this sharing.

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

My Dharma boy (left) and Oser girl loves to laze around on the veranda in the mornings. They enjoy all the trees, grass and relaxing under the hot sun. Sunbathing is a favorite daily activity. I care about these two doggies of mine very much and I enjoy seeing them happy. They are with me always. Tsem Rinpoche Always be kind to animals and eat vegetarian- https://bit.ly/2Psp8h2

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin.
