Lingshan Brahma Palace in Wuxi, China

Lingshan Brahma Palace is the third-phase project of the Lingshan Buddhism Resort in Wuxi, China that cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build. As a multi-functional cultural building for tourism, conferences, exhibitions, and cultural experiences, Lingshan Brahma Palace has been built beside a mountain in the integration of the Chinese Buddhist rock-cave art and traditional Buddhist building elements.

灵山梵宫坐落于烟波浩淼的无锡太湖之滨,钟灵毓秀的灵山脚下,气势恢宏的建筑与宝相庄严的灵山大佛比邻而立,瑰丽璀璨的艺术和独特深厚的佛教文化交相辉映。灵山梵总建筑面积达7万余平方米,高三层的梵宫采用退台式建筑布局,以南北为轴线,东西呈对称分布,建筑面宽150米,进深180米,顶部为错落有致的五座华塔,后侧为曼陀罗形态的圣坛。

One can experience a rich cultural atmosphere in Brahma Palace. Dongyang wood carving, mural painting by Dunhuang masters, Liuli crystal, Yangzhou lacquer ware, paintings, Cloisonné lamps, Jingdezhen masterpieces, and so on. These art treasures are interpretations of various traditional culture.

步入梵宫,浓郁的文化气息扑面而来。东阳木雕、敦煌技师的手工壁画、琉璃巨制、扬州漆器、油画组图、景泰蓝须弥灯、景德镇青花粉彩缸、瓯塑浮雕壁画,这些艺术珍品在灵山梵宫各区域演绎着优秀的传统文化。

Following the stairs, we arrive at the main venue of the 2009 World Buddhist Forum. This is a multi-functional theater that can accomodate conference or performance. The large circular rotating stage theater measures 35,000 square meters, and can accommodate 1,500 spectators. The dome on top of the theatre is more than 30 meters in height, with 1500 lotus lights and when switched on, it was as if  one is staring at the starry sky, engulfed in the vastness of the universe.

沿着楼梯,漫步走进2009年“世界佛教论坛”主会场,这是一个集会议、演出于一体多功能超大型剧场。这个超大型的旋转舞台剧场为圆形设计,建筑面积达35000平方米,可容纳1500名观众。剧场上方是高度达30多米的巨大穹顶,1500盏金光灿灿的莲花灯瞬间开启,刹那间千万盏明灯拱聚的穹顶,仿佛星光灿烂的天穹,仰望中,恍若置身浩翰的宇宙之中,绮丽而唯美。

    Truly stunning about this beautiful temple …….The Brahma Buddhist Palace in Wuxi China . Located right on the foot of Lingshan Mountain, Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China. Surrounded by mountains and lakes, the palace’s location was carefully picked according to feng shui principles. Wow…..this Brahma Palace has been named as one of the forty most beautiful sights in China. I do agreed with it after visited it a few years back. This gorgeous palace is so rich in architecture , wood carving, unique religious art paintings which shows a classic expo on the profound Buddhist culture and brilliant traditional art in China. This palace is built of stone with a symmetrical layout, which took 2 years to build and opened only in 2008. The whole of Mt. Lingshan Scenic Area is a Buddhist wonderland with many places of interest either than this palace.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing and breathtaking temple.It has both traditional and modern elements in it.The team of people involve really put in their time ,thought and effort from planning till commissioning in order to achieve such an magnificent outcome.

    It has both elements of east and western architecture though very colourful in many sections of the temple its pleasant to look at.This is definitely a palace for Buddhism. Thank you very much for sharing this article with us.

    This temple is amazingly beatutiful beyond words that I can describe. It makes my head dizzy to think how many thousands and thousands of people both tourists and residents staying around the surrounding areas have been tremendously blessed and protected by one humongous statue of Buddha.All these pictures really makes me want to make a trip to Wuxi!
    Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful pictures of Wuxi temple._/\_

    Yes…its really amazing and very beautiful temple in Wuxi China. I visited the temple in 2013, The Brahma Palace and the Lingshan Buddha is a must place to visit in Wuxi. Its one of the tourist attraction in Wuxi,and i was there it was so crowded.The temples there was so rich in architecture ,wood carving, mural paintings ,beautiful lamps to name a few.I am so blessed to have seen it with my own eyes ..just amazing.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing at least i can know a little more of these temples’

  6. Jutika Lam on Apr 30, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Woah!!! Wow wow! What an amazing and breathtaking temple!

    Just seeing the wonderful pictures of the artworks of the temple as well as the resort makes me so wanna go there!

    When it comes to having the best temples I definitely have to say that China, Tibet, Nepal and some other small other countries are littrely the best at not just having big temples but big temples with totally awesome artworks and statues inside such holy places.

    What I like the most about this Temple is of course that Humongous statue of the Buddha standing.

    It makes my head dizzy to think how many thousands and thousands of people both tourists and residents staying around the surrounding areas have been tremendously blessed and protected by one humongous statue of Buddha.

    All these pictures really makes me want to make a trip to Wuxi!

    As always thank you Rinpoche for blogging about this amazing spot on Earth!

    Love
    Jutika

    This is amazing! Not only a beautiful offering to the Buddhas, but it is also such a sight to behold – the building looks like an art piece of its own.

    The one thing that catches my eye is how some of the statues are depicted as having angel wings. It’s such a beautiful interpretation.

    I think it’s great to see different temples, as people have different interpretations of what is the best to offer to the Buddhas. It reminds me a lot of Catholic cathedrals, where people come in and are in awe of the architecture.

    Perhaps even this temple will open up the seeds in other people’s mind, for those who come to view the temple rather than to pray.

  8. David Lai on Feb 5, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Wow! This post has been here for awhile but I am still going to answer Rinpoche’s query and I think I particularly like the high ceilings and massive walkway. It gives and airy sense of grandeur to the place. I do find it strange that the central part of this ‘temple’ is a massive amphitheater because there’s really no central shrine to the Buddha or any of the Bodhisattva.

    It would have been great if they did have one and a massive indoor Buddha would be nice. I am just scrolling back and forth and not finding it. There’s only one outside but that don’t count. It is interesting that they have a tree in the middle of the amphitheater, is that a replica of the Bodhi tree, i wonder. Anyway, I like that and it would have been great, if they had an exquisite Buddha sitting meditating underneath it. That’s all. For me, the grandeur of temple seemed to be a hype up for a main feature or a main temple. That is sorely missing.

    This post brings back so many memories when we were in China last year for Kechara Tea House’s opening (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/official-opening-of-kechara-tea-house-shanghai.html)! Whilst pulling up towards the temple, the monumental Lingshan Buddha was breathtaking. The entire temple is built over a huge area, and you actually sit on buggies to take you around to the various sites around the entire temple.

    The Brahma Palace is very grand, especially the mural that is built with precious stones and jade. It’s super pretty, and the floor tiles as well as pillars are all made from Marble. There were also carved statues made from sandalwood. Shows how giving the Chinese are, to make a temple this beautiful, offering millions of dollars for the benefit of others. Wonderful.

    Every time when I saw a great temple or huge monastery, will trigger me think more…it is very nice KWPC can come out very soon, hehehe…

    I am rejoice to Lingshan Brahma Palace which located in Wuxi, China, how lucky people nearby there. It is so bless!!!

  11. William on Jan 28, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    This is such a a beautiful temple. It has both traditional and modern elements in it. And they blend together very well. I love the outdoor huge Buddha the most because everyone will see this image and be blessed and create imprints in their mind. Also this Buddha can be viewed from outside also and able to bless the surroundings of Wuxi.

  12. Cynthia on Sep 19, 2011 at 3:28 am

    I went to this cultural temple last month with some Kecharians – Dato Ruby, Henry, Beng Kooi, Carmen, Lew and KB. The Brahma Palace was our focus, we mingled there mostly. The paintings were huge, intricate and meaningful. Each depicting the story of the Buddha. Before we entered the building, we were given a pair of “socks” for our shoes because of the marble floor. We made a joke about how they are using this method so that we can help polish the floor and we should think strongly that we are cleaning the temple and purifying our body karma. Hehe. We entered the panoramic theatre to watch a show. It was well recommended by Datuk May to not miss it. It was truly magnificient. The visual effects, stage and performance was awesome. What I love most was when water poured down from an opening on top of the stage in between the stage and the audience to create a rain effect. Very nice. Reminded me of China’s olympic opening. I was very happy to experience it first hand.

  13. Anila on Jan 26, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I am breathless already looking at the pictures without even have to walk thru this fantastic and huge Lingshan Brahma Palace, Wuxi. I notice the decor and the implements put into this Resort and certain versions extracted from the Eastern and Western countries like the Domes and Churches in Europe. A combination of Tibetan and Chinese decorative items like door knobs and 8 Auspicious signs. Part of the Arch structures resembles the Maharani Palace in Kashmir. And Lingshan Buddha reminds me of the statue of Liberty in New York. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us such beautiful photography of Lingshan Brahma Palace in Wuxi, China. My wish for Rinpoche is for him to be able to visit this beautiful place one day very soon.

  14. Lim Han Nee on Jan 18, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for the lovely pictures of this magnificent, nay, awesome palace of a temple.
    I love the lovely dakinis who seem to come alive! However, I love the serene setting of this temple best and its beautiful reflection in the water.

  15. Elsie Toy on Jan 11, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    OMG!! I got no words for it except OPULENCE!!! Everything is so perfect and intricate and so Grand. I personally feel that is nicer then those stain glass images in Churches or Cathedrals and so detailed. Those people who involved in building it must have alot of merits. How I wish I have these kind of merits too and the resources to have this temple up. Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing with us it is not just an eye opener. A reflection of what I have done so far and that is nothing great in this life.

  16. henryooi on Jan 10, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Grand, colourful, good lighting, ornate, spacious with high ceilings.

    Maintenance must be a nightmare! Changing light bulbs, cleaning, dusting, vacuuming….

    I find the 88 meters high Buddha statue awesome and facade of the temple eye catching.

  17. Thierry on Jan 9, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    Very grand setting!
    What I find remarquable is:
    1. The proportions, harmonious AND grand, (not an easy task)
    2. The attention to the details and how the “parts” connect with each other (the articulation)
    3. The professional attention given to the lighting
    4. The symmetry giving a sense of balance and stability
    5. The high ceilings and large scales, beyond human scale

  18. Shirley Maya Tan on Jan 9, 2011 at 5:16 am

    This is really about putting OPULENCE AND GRANDEUR back into Spirituality.

    Reminds me of the old days when they used to build majestic Cathedrals and Churches. I guess, there is some measure of value and impact in walking into a place of worship and just be completely blown away by its sheer architecture and decor. After all, we are such visual creatures. And size, in this particular case, does seem to matter.

    I have always loved high ceilings and walkaways/hallways for some reason. So, these are the things that appeal to me. Its the idea of walking through a hallway, in anticipation of arriving to a desired location and being in awe as we approach our destination.

    The Dome Skylight is personal pet favourite. Always have loved domes and skylights.

    This is definitely a Palace for Buddhism. I will definitely want to make a trip out there and experience it for myself. Thank you so much, Rinpoche for sharing with us all.

  19. Alex C.J.Tan on Jan 7, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    The whole temple is simply mind-blowing and definitely will attract many tourists, buddhists or non-buddhists. Seeds of enlightenment will be planted on these visitors…rejoice! I like the domes a lot as they remind me of mandalas. However, my favourite is the gigantic outdoor Buddha. It’s so awesome!

    May we create the causes ane merits to have something similar in KWPC. Thank you very much for sharing with us, Rinpoche.

  20. Andrew James Boon on Jan 7, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Deareast Rinpoche,

    I absolutely love picture 005 which is the circular dome which look ups into what seems like a constellation… beautiful!

    I also like the wall of Jade (picture 27)… amazing!

    And lastly picture 2 with the temple reflected in the clear waters of the lake. Stuning!

    Architecturally though, high ceilings and impeccable mood lighting (that highlights the intricacy of the carvings) is to me the utmost flattery for any building inside or outside. And they seem to have done this pretty well in this temple. Well done! Can’t wait for our very own KWPC!!!!

    Much love… Andrew

  21. Lanse on Jan 7, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing this. It really is an eye-opener for me. I’m impressed by the scale of the building, but since I’m a very boring person, things that touched my heart are only the stupa and the outdoor Buddha. However, I believe that this grand and beautiful temple will sure become one of the tourist hotspot, and this is very very good.

  22. Paris on Jan 7, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Thank you for sharing these photos with us Rinpoche. It certainly shows us the extent of what can be accomplished, especially when it’s something completely out of the ordinary!

    I think what’s stuck out most for me was the natural surroundings of the temple – the beautiful mountains and lake set a beautiful backdrop to the temple and I imagine would provide a most conducive place for meditation and prayer.

    I have to say that the architecture and design doesn’t appeal to me personally, but they must be applauded for daring to do something so very different from most traditional Buddhist temples, and pulling it off so well. It’s a beautiful offering that they have paid so much attention to the detail of the interiors and given it their best.

    It’s certainly an effective way of drawing people in (even if it’s just as visitors or tourists) and therefore connect somehow, indirectly, to the blessings of the Buddhas and Dharma too.

    Thank you 🙂

  23. Ethan C on Jan 7, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    This temple looks magnificent! Simply breathtaking, i Love it how they incorporated the ancient inspired with a modern way… this is a must visit. I personally like the sculptures, paintings and the masterpieces.. how exquisite! the fine detailing on the ceiling and wall are beautiful… the theater is massive and nicely done. It is amazing to see there are some many people to work so hard to spread Buddha’s teachings and implement it in our modern era.

  24. JP on Jan 7, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The Wuxi Temple is truly amazing! I was there August 2010 and I was really taken aback by the grandeur and vastness of the entire complex. I felt like I was in a buddhist theme park. I had to pay RMB180 to get in!

    With regards to Yee Ling’s commment, whether it feels commercialized or spiritual, I feel it doesn’t really matter for now because everyone who enters this park is blessed by the huge outdoor buddha statue and the many buddha statues in the complex. Frankly speaking, how many people out there are really into true spirituality. As rinpoche says, true spirituality requires mind transformation and not just read spiritual books, attend classes and pray.

    We can definitely learn a lot from this project for the conceptualisation and design of Kechara World Peace Centre. Thank you Rinpoche for showing us this example. It proves to us once again that KWPC is highly possible.

    Love,
    JP

  25. Lin Kechara on Jan 6, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Dear rinpoche
    It definitely has a “wow” factor because it is very obvious a lot of time, money, planning has gone into it. My first impression is that is is like a Las Vegas casino in China.Very ornate, over the top, definitely will draw the visitors, with chinese elements.
    But what really appeal to me is the location, where the building is reflected in the very clear pool of water and the beautiful dakinis.

    With some parts of the temple, it looks more like a hotel , even making it seem like a building with middle eastern and turkish overtones.
    With KWPC I hope we can see buildings/ place that is beautiful, fill one with awe and yet tranquil, with great spiritual energy yet
    able to draw the people because it is so different.
    Not easy huh?! But I pray it will manifest with your guidance!
    Thank you for sharing, rinpoche

  26. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 6, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    The temple is very beautiful and I like one of the main multi colored murals with Buddha Shakyamuni surrounded arhats and bdohisattva.

    I also like the very tall and high ceilings too makes it look very grand and imperial.
    Kuan Yin with wings I think I saw very cool. I like the massive bells, wish we can have something like that at KWPC 🙂

    It has both elements of east and western architecture, though very colorful in many sections of the temple its pleasant to look at.

  27. patsy on Jan 6, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Wow what a majestic looking temple. Full of grandeur .A combination of the West meets East style of architecture. I may not like this style of temple as I feel that it is too cold, it is too commercialized, there is no feeling of spirituality. However,I like the detailed sculptures on the ceilings. It reminds me of celestial beings making beautiful offerings to the Three Jewels.

    Nevertheless, I am very impressed by the time and investment put in creating such a detailed beautiful Temple! Would love to visit this place.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us.

  28. Nicholas on Jan 6, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.
    Wow….it’s really awesome. It’s gave me a combination of traditional art in a modern way of finishing/presentation. Like a temple in a very very high class Hotel. The interior of the temple look so grand with the high ceiling & huge pillars …..just like a palace. I love the ceiling…..high and the design is so nice. The details of every single wall & corners were so fine and able to produce the Wa! effect.

    The team of people involve really put in their time, thought & effort from planning till commissioning in order achieve such an magnificent outcome

    The Lingshan Buddha standing tall…look stunning. Just like giving blessing to anyone that able to see him……even from very far away as long as you can see him. I like that.

  29. Sharon Saw on Jan 6, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche. What stands out for me is how they have designed this temple to be contemporary, contrasting with the old style of temples. I like the Baroque-influenced design, with the detailed lotus and dakini sculptures on the various architectural elements etc. However, the theatre is too busy for my personal taste. The overall effect is very grand and opulent.

    The statue reminds me of the Lantau island statue, just that this is standing up.

    I like the setting of the temple with the statue on the side and on the water… it looks very majestic!

    Thank you again for sharing these beautiful pictures.

  30. keng tan on Jan 6, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    I cannot imagine a temple that is unlike any temple apart from the grand Buddha statue and Stupa outside. Some parts remind me of a hotel lobby, or/and a museum. Very tastefully done nonetheless. I like the domes best – very ethereal feel to it. I can just imagine the wide ranging visitors to this place, including spiritual tourists which I know some do not agree. But this is a modern world and spiritual tourism is an essential tool to bring people into the serious spiritual practice.

  31. Andrew Chiam on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:58 am

    This is one great treasure of the world. Simply amazing. The Dharma version of Vatican City. Thanks for sharing.

  32. xiao s on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:58 am

    I like the flying deities on the ceiling. Reflection on the water giving sense of serenity. simple outside look vs grand interior, wa~

  33. Green on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing these images, they are so much better than the ones I have seen 🙂 My parents and brother visited this temple and they told me I had to visit it sometime in the future. They were very impressed with the architecture there. They told me that it was so amazing the way it was architecturally built that although the temperature outside was hot, inside the temple, it was cool. I think it had this wind tunnel thing going on. I liked the Buddha outside, the wall where Buddha is surrounded by the sangha, as well as the sculptures of the Dakinis( I am assuming them to be).

    Best Wishes,
    Green

  34. ngeowchin on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:24 am

    WOW! After looking at the pics a few times, I realize the designers had incorporated ideas from many different continents.
    The first pics with the 5 domes with pond reflections is so much like Angkor Wat; the interior and ceiling work in Brahma palace reminds me of St Peter’s and pic no.6, white structure with multiple minarets and stupas is reminiscent of Thai designs in the Royal Palace.
    Thank you Rinpoche for opening our eyes to what our minds can create in celebration of goodness and the truth.

  35. yoke fui on Jan 6, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Chinese Temple has come a long way from the traditional, stereotyped Shao Lin version to this awe inspiring & ultra modern Brahma Palace.

    Every nook and corner reflects careful thought, planning and execution has been put into this Temple. It also personifies the adventurous and ambitious quality of the modern day Chinese.

    However, I do hope that in the midst of material advancement and pursuit, the Chinese would balance it with virtues and traditional values that had proven to work in the moral & spiritual foundation of the people.

    Brahma Palace has fantastic hardware, let’s hope it also has a smooth running software towards the development and spread of spirituality.

    Nonetheless, I truly rejoice in the efforts put in by all those behind this fantastic Buddhist Temple. It certainly gives a new meaning to the word “temple” !

  36. ruby khong on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:58 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us. It opens up a new horizon for me. The Chinese (with their foresight)again plan for now AND the future as they always do. Places of worship during the imperial times later became places of tourists attractions which brought in alot of tourists dollars for them. It is not just the sheer size of this building but the details which shows that alot of thought and planning went into it to cater to what attracts tourists. Another note worth highlighting is that this is an expression of the Chinese trying to break away from conventional mentality that a temple should be how it traditionally looked. Bold step but considering the commercial side of it, this building serves many purposes. I am impressed and am looking forward to visiting it one day.

  37. Irene Lim on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:51 am

    It is fantastically grand, imperialist, artistically built, a fusion of the east and west. I am awe-stricken…… Kechara can certainly learn from them. Thank you Rinpoche.

  38. Valentina on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:46 am

    Dear Rinpoche

    I am really in awe!!! I am really amazed with the amount of details that the statues and decoration. It takes a huge amount of devotion and faith to be able to build such a marvel. Everytime I see a beautiful Buddhist monument, I always thought of the people who initiate it, and I rejoice for them, for their effort, faith and devotion. What I like the most about this temple is the fact that it generates more faith to the visitors, and it shows us Kecharians that nothing is impossible. KWPC will manifest. Many people before us have done it, and there is no reason that we cannot do it.

    Warm regards

    Valentina

  39. Cheryl Petersen on Jan 6, 2011 at 7:18 am

    Wow, thanks for sharing the temple with me, who can see the magnificent care and grace you all are bestowing on China.

  40. Diana Pereyda on Jan 6, 2011 at 1:46 am

    This temple is just dripping gorgeous,love even the water reflection and the huge buddha maybe
    seen by plane good angle, just breath taking. You could live close where one could walk parts
    of this beautiful temple for the rest of your life, and still not be able to take it all in. Feel lucky
    just to see pictures.

  41. Tenzin Losang on Jan 6, 2011 at 1:12 am

    This is a very large and beautiful temple. I am impressed by the richness in detail and the sheer size of it all. What caught my attention most are the statues of the celestial musicians. They look very life-like.

  42. Koh Hee Peng on Jan 6, 2011 at 1:04 am

    I like the whole design and architecture of the temple. It is amazing and fantastic. I’ve never come across such a beautiful temple. The Buddha statue is so huge. Amazing!!

  43. Yee Ling on Jan 6, 2011 at 12:19 am

    Dear Rinpoche
    It is clear that the intention of building this structure is to declare to the whole world that whatever has been built before this project the Chinese can do better. Somehow despite the grandeur of the buildings it felt a little too perfect and lacked a sense of spirituality and felt cold. It had more of a feel of a 5-star hotel pretending to be a temple. The hallway with the domed ceiling was beautiful but it reminded me of the Vatican. I suppose it is hard to balance beautiful perfection with creating an atmosphere for spiritual contemplation.
    I did like the fact that they had glass in the ceiling to allow natural light to filter in to highlight the ceiling sculptures. It provided a link to nature which is lacking in the whole building. The atrium with bamboo in the middle was a nice touch.
    My favourite section of the whole project was the Buddha statue and the view of the temple from a distance with the golden stupas.
    Overall an impressive building but lacks something major, spirituality!

  44. Han Siew Fong on Jan 6, 2011 at 12:15 am

    The multi functional theatre catches my eyes most, just imagine, Buddhist conferences, forums & performances are held at this GRAND VENUE, meaning dharma, buddhist teachings or important decisions will be made from here…

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with us.

    Regards, Han

  45. Elena on Jan 5, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    Rinpoche,

    The temple is beautiful, and quite unlike any traditional temple! The elements of the temple which caught me eye were:

    1) The sheer scale – I know everything in China is done to be really big and really grand, but not many temples are built in this day and age to be this size

    2) The organisation’s complete lack of shame in making everything the biggest, the most beautiful, the best, the brightest, the shiniest, etc. It may not be to everyone’s tastes, but they did what they believed in, and they did it in a BIG way

    3) How they have managed to create a temple that is not traditional but also not TOO modern, to the point it becomes gimmicky or like a theme park

    4) How they incorporated traditional art (e.g. the carvings of the dakinis) into modern architecture

    5) The beautiful ceilings and pillars – they really paid attention to all the details

    6) It’s to a very international standard – you can visit it as a temple, or as a tourist attraction. For devotees, they will be inspired by the huge Lingshan Buddha. For tourists, the place doesn’t look SO religious that it turns them away from visiting

    Thank you for sharing this post with us Rinpoche!

    Reminds me of a grand Catholic cathedral in Italy or similar. The Wuxi temple is really quite impressive, and I can see they have put a lot of time and investment into building it. Outwardly it appears to be just like a tourist attraction, but there’s nothing wrong with that, especially if it is able to attract the masses to the temple.
    Personally, I like the amphitheatre and the possibilities it provides 🙂

    I am in total awe when i see this. Massive chills down the spine. Got to go visit in the near near future !

    Its too amazing.

    Didnt even know this exist !

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Look how tiny the people standing at the foot of this huge Buddha look in the above picture. What a fantastic Buddha.
    I am just so amazed at the whole thing. But I love this outdoor Buddha.

    Which part of the temple do you like the best???? Let me know here. I want to see what captures your attention please.

    Inspiring Master Xuyun or Hsu Yun a renowned Chinese Chan Buddhist master was one of the most influential Buddhist teachers of the 19th and 20th centuries. An extraordinary Buddhist Master had gone through countless hardships and illnesses yet continue tirelessly worked as a bodhisattva, giving teachings, explaining sutras and even restoring old temples. Going through all the hardships did not stop him from his Dharma endeavours. He had successfully revitalised the Chinese Buddhist teachings, and had since benefitted many. Master Xuyun has spent his whole life devoted to the Dharma. He lived into his 120th year, and his life spanned two centuries and three dynasties. Interesting read of a bodhisattva.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this inspiring sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all about the special Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Oracle Statue. Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words and it’s a blessing . Dorje Shugden oracle statue is the first of its kind in the world where it enshrined in the Wisdom Hall Audience Room, at Kechara Forest Retreat in Malaysia. We are fortunate to have this Dorje Shugden oracle statue , all thanks to our guru Tsem Rinpoche. We rely on the tradition of oracles to receive blessings and advices.
    Oracles are called upon as protectors, healers and predictors of the future, have played an important role in Tibetan culture. For hundreds of years, Tibetans have consulted the Nechung Oracle, the State Oracle, during Losar, the lunar new year celebration. It was the oracle who had saved Dalai Lama , leaving Tibet to India during the Chinese invasion in 1959.
    Thanks again Rinpoche with folded hands, having this special Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Oracle Statue which allow us and everyone to be connected and generate merits.

    Very precious video clips of the Powerful oracle by Choyang Duldzin Kuten. He was the official oracle of Gaden Monastery and a layman. He took trance of various powerful Dharma Protectors and in the videos he took trance of both the peaceful and wrathful forms of Dorje Shugden. When Dorje Shugden takes trance, those who were there will receive blessing and advice from Dorje Shugden. Even makes prayers for everyone to achieve Bodhicitta. That’s wonderful…a rare video indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. I have yet to see one but hope in future and have enough merits to see it.

    The film Faces of Death shows nothing is more precious than being in the present moment, fully alive , fully aware . We won’t know what happening next. Death is a significant and inevitable part of life. Death teaches us that life is impermanent. There is no escape from death. We are all going to die some day. It doesn’t matter whether we are rich or poor, successful or ordinary, evil or good, we are going to die one day. Death refers to the end of life, we all go through this sad occurrence, and it is unavoidable. We have to accept death, but for as long as we are alive, we should live our life to the fullest meaningfully and make sure to enjoy it. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So we should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Nothing is permanent in this world. Life’s impermanence.
    Buddhism emphasizes the importance of accepting the impermanence of life. Some scenes in the video appear quite gruesome, not to me as I have seen real ones as I been working and assisting surgeon in open surgeries before. Have seen thousands of births and many deaths occur while working . Life’s impermanence, I realised is what makes every single time and hour so precious. Its what shapes us our time and what makes it so important than not a single moment be wasted. We should not cling on to our body and our self-cherishing mind. It takes facing death to appreciate life and each other fully people die remains in the memory of those who live on. Everything must have its beginning and must have ending. We never know how much we really believe anything until its truth becomes a matter of life and death to us. The source of human suffering and discontent is that we crave and cling to the things of this world. Human life is brief, nothing does. Our hair , teeth fall our bodies decline and decay. Watching this documentary film is indeed powerful, truthful and tells us more, Life is certain , death is uncertain , I am glad to have across Rinpoche ‘s blog learning and practicing dharma . I have immersed myself in learning more and accepting that life is finite. All that exists is impermanent, nothing lasts. Therefore nothing can be grasped onto. Awareness of impermanence and appreciation of our human potential will give us a sense of urgency that we must use every precious moment. Profound teachings reading those comments.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious sharing.

    Wow …interesting read . You would not believe this . A boy named, Jacob Barnett was 2 years old when he was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism by doctors. It seem this boy would likely never talk or read and would probably be forever unable to independently manage basic daily activities. At the age 3 he is able to able to solve 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzles. They were wrong this child turned to be a math whiz heralded as a boy genius whose passion and mastery of physics impressed experts later . At age nine, while playing with shapes, he built a series of mathematical models. That’s fantastic and shock his parents. He even demonstrated how he imagined numbers as shapes. Jacob enrolled in university at age 12, and he even published his first physics paper. He is considered as one of the world’s most promising physicists and the youngest researcher to ever be accepted in the Institute for Theoretical Physics.
    Jacob Barnett is indeed another proof of reincarnation, I do believe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting post.

    Back in 2015, Kechara had the privilege and great merits to witness an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. Those who were there witnessed a rare event where Dharma protector Dorje Shugden taken full trance of his official Panglung Oracle. Kechara has been very honoured and blessed that Dorje Shugden took trance of the Protector Dorje Shugden via the 7th Panglung Oracle or Chojela, an authentic and genuine oracle of Dorje Shugden . Wow all of the prayers, offerings, invocations, ritual instruments and recitations were all performed by Kecharians. They really did a good job. Rejoice. I not in Kechara yet back then , would hope one day Chojela will be taking trance again in the near furture.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures that tell us all.

    This is an amazing and extremely inspiring story of a young brave woman who was willing to help and save many innocent children, in spite of her own personal danger. She did not give up easily and would find a solution to problems. She took great courage to take a stand against oppression, and facing a great wrong of those holding power.

    Though she lost her father at an early age, his dedication to others and his last words made a deep impression on her. Her kindness and compassion won many heart.
    She was recognized as a heroine during the holocaust and made history of winning many internationally awards and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Thank you for the wonderful sharing, May God blessed her wonderful soul.

    Wow ..that’s scary and shocking. Can’t deny the fact that human are indeed the most terrifying species in the world. Unlike every other species on this list the vast majority of human killings are intentional, showing that appreciation of life needs to drastically improve.

    Most of these animals are now facing extinction or nearing extinction due to man’s greediness. The rush towards wealth has out weight and causes this issue which we don’t realize now that it may belongs to one of our losses.

    We should appreciate all living creature and hope that more people will be more compassionate and aware on our ecology.

    The importance of the zodiac to the Chinese culture is that the animal signs have been used in stories and folklore. These developed the different personality traits that were represented by each animal.

    Learning more about astrology and the zodiac signs helps us to understand people and their action. It’s always interesting to find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with our surroundings.

    Thanks for the interesting sharing, the zodiac provides guidance on how people live their lives.

    Recitation of mantra meditation have benefits us in long run helps to increase self-awareness, reduced stress and a greater sense of calmness. Mantras are positive words or phrases. When we chant mantras our mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. It’s a wonderful practice. Help us to improved mood and well-being, reduced anxiety , verbal memory and so forth. Mantras have influence over our mind and body. Mantras are repetitive sounds, many neuroscientists have proved that sound and language of mantras influence the aspects of our life. Watching the video tells us more. I am glad to have met Rinpoche, learning and practicing from scratch have me change to more calmer than before. Recitation have me chance.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

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

    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains to enlightenment.
