(By Tsem Rinpoche and Joy Kam)

The graceful and talented Russian writer, artist, theosophist, explorer, healer and philosopher, Helena Ivanovna Roerich was born on February 12, 1879. She was the beloved wife of the famous painter, Nicholas Roerich.

They were both disciples of Master Morya, the teacher of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (Madame Blavatsky), founder of the Theosophical Society. With the help and collaboration of various teachers from the East, Helena and Nicholas Roerich founded the Agni Yoga Society in New York in the early 20th Century. The Agni Yoga Society advocated the philosophical teachings known as Living Ethics.

Helena and Nicholas travelled to and explored many remote, hard-to-reach regions in Central Asia. It was part of their quest to learn about the culture, life and spiritual beliefs of the East, and how it related to human consciousness and the enlightened mind. They were very spiritual at heart and believed that their purpose on this planet was to spread the message of the Divine.

Helena was not just a great philosopher; she was an inspiration, a great leader and a prominent contributor to the world of art and culture. She was the founder and honorary President of the Institute of Himalayan Studies, also known as ‘Urusvati’ in India. Among her many publications are translations of two volumes of Helena P. Blavatsky’s ‘Secret Doctrine’, and a selection of Master Morya’s letters known as ‘Cup of the East’.

She also co-wrote the ‘International Treaty for Protection of Artistic and Scientific Institutions and Historical Monuments’, better known as the Roerich Pact, and is still revered around the world for her wisdom and her profoundly spiritual books.

Born in St. Petersburg, Helena Roerich was the daughter of a famous Russian architect, Ivan Ivanovich Shaposhnikov, who designed the St. Petersburg Choral Synagogue. Her mother was Ekaterina Vassilievna Shaposhnikova who came from the ancient Golenischev-Kutuzov family from Novgorod.

When Helena was young, she was a very sensitive child and would often fall ill. What is interesting is that when she was ill, she would see two very tall men who would suddenly appear from nowhere and come to her aid.

When she related these visions and experiences to her family and other adults, they would dismiss her tales and tell her to stop imagining things. They obviously did not believe her, so she decided to keep her thoughts to herself and refrained from sharing them.

Little Helena often spent summers at her aunt, E.V. Putyatina’s estate. Her aunt was married to Prince P.A. Putyatin and they resided in Bologoe in the Novgorod region. It is said that when Helena was staying there, she would go outside to feed the animals every morning and when they saw her coming, they would all rush to greet her.

A Love for Learning

helena04a

Helena came from a family of intellectual and highly-talented individuals like Arsenii Arkadievich Golenischev-Kutuzov, a well-known 19th Century poet; Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky, a composer; and Mikhail Illarionovich Golenischev-Kutuzov, a field marshal.

Helena was an intelligent, inquisitive and highly independent child with a natural artistic talent. From a very young age, Helena showed exceptional abilities — she could play the piano and was able to read and write in three different languages when she was just seven. Even at such a tender age, she showed an interest in spirituality and started reading philosophical, spiritual, artistic and historical books.

Coming from such a rich, cultured background and being surrounded by highly-educated relatives, it is not surprising that Helena had the privilege of receiving a very good education. By all accounts, she enjoyed it very much.

Helena received a gold medal for excellence when she graduated from St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Gymnasium in 1895. Apart from a formal education at school, she took the initiative to study a variety of other subjects on her own. She learned to paint and became well-versed in Russian and European literature, religious history and philosophy. Helena was especially interested in the great works of illustrious Indian philosophers such as Rabindranath Tagore, Ramakrishna and Vivekananda.

After graduating, Helena wanted to further her studies in the St. Petersburg Conservatory but her family opposed it. They were afraid she would become interested in revolutionary ideas popular among the students there. Therefore, Helena continued her studies at home, mastering foreign languages and becoming well-versed in many different subjects.

 

Falling in Love

helena05b-1

It was 1899, in Bologoe, that Helena crossed paths with Nicholas Konstantinovich Roerich. Nicholas soon became attracted to Helena and would often request her company at all kinds of exhibitions and performances. They shared many things in common and eventually fell in love. Despite her family’s objections, Helena married Nicholas Roerich in 1901 in St. Petersburg.

To commemorate their love, a monument was built in 2001 at the spot where they first met in Bologoe; it is named ‘Monument of Love’. The monument has inscribed upon it a beautiful quote from Nicholas Roerich’s essay called ‘The University’, which was a declaration of his love for Helena:

“I met Lada, my partner in life and inspirer, at Bologoe, at Prince P.A. Putyatin’s estate. Joy!”.

The monument celebrates the love and union of one of Russia’s most prominent artistic couples who shared the same vision for the world around them. After they married, Nicholas again wrote about their love:

“We passed amicably any obstacles. And the obstacles turned into possibilities. I devoted my books: To Helena, my wife, friend, partner and inspirer.”

Many of Nicholas Roerich’s artworks were born from the common creativity the couple shared. In Roerich’s books as well as his paintings, he refers to Helena as “She who leads”. He also said many times that there should have been two signatures on his paintings, his and his beloved Helena’s.

“We created together, and not without reason it was said that the works must have two names, women’s and men’s.”

Helena and Nicholas had two sons together. The elder, George, was born in August 1902 and the younger, Svetoslav, was born in October 1904. George grew up to be a renowned orientalist and scientist while Svetoslav took after his father and became a talented painter.

Her husband and sons admired Helena and she was considered the foundation of the Roerich family as well as their spiritual leader. Always supportive of Nicholas’ initiatives and projects, she would study deeply whatever subjects he was exploring. They travelled together often and explored around forty ancient cities in Russia searching for places of national history and culture in 1903 alone.

It was during these travels that Helena captured the beauty of various architectural monuments, paintings and ornaments with her photography skills. She was also skilled in restoration and together, she and Nicholas recovered many precious masterpieces from great artists like Van Dyck, Breugel, Rubens and van Orley, where their originals were hidden behind many layers of new paint.

Being an artistic person, Helena collected many antiques and works of art during her travels. She also composed over 300 written works, many of which can be seen in the Hermitage Museum today. Another of Helena’s interests was archaeology, and she and Nicholas would often help in excavation works in Novgorod and Tver.

In 1916, Helena fell very ill with pneumonia. A doctor strongly advised her to move to a warmer place. The Roerichs decided to move to Finland and lived along the shores of Lake Ladoga in Serdobol. Finland became independent in 1918 and closed its borders to Russia and this made it difficult for the Roerichs to return to their homeland.

In 1919, the Roerichs moved to England and made London their home. It was here in London that Helena began to collaborate with a group of great thinkers and Eastern philosophers. They were called “The Great Teachers” (Mahatmas) according to the Indian spiritual tradition and, together, they started the works of Agni Yoga.

Helena’s Travels and Works

Not long after their move to England in 1920, Nicholas Roerich was invited to the United States on a tour to exhibit his amazing artwork. The entire Roerich family then moved to New York.

It was in New York that the cultural activities under Nicholas Roerich’s leadership began. Helena played a huge role in supporting her partner during this creative manifestation. It set the foundation for the growth of cultural centres such as the Nicholas Roerich Museum, the International Art Centre, “Corona Mundi” (“Crown of the World”), and the International Painter’s Association “Cor Ardens” (Flaming Hearts).

Roerich’s esteemed cultural centres had great influence on America’s cultural development and sparked many more creative clubs, societies and educational institutions that brought together many artists and intellectuals. It was a time of great joy as many inspiring people collaborated and united to explore and expand their consciousness in order to find a counter to the increasingly materialistic world that was creating roadblocks in their journey of intellectual exploration.

Three years later, in December 1923, Helena and Nicholas decided to move the whole family to India. Helena had always been interested in, and was fascinated by India. She adored the richness of its culture and the deep spirituality integral to its soul. Many Russian intellectuals were attracted to India’s spiritual traditions, a trend that was especially true towards the end of the 19th Century. They were seeking morality and found that Indian traditions taught them to live better, simpler lives.

From 1924 to 1928, Helena joined her husband on a grand expedition to Central Asia organised by Nicholas. The expedition took them to some very hard-to-reach places in Russia, India, China, Mongolia, and Tibet.

They saw regions where few had traversed before, many of which were largely untouched and some even unknown. They would pause at each location and research its geography, archaeology, ethnography, history, philosophy, arts and religion.

Unknown mountains and passages were discovered and mapped out. They also found some very rare manuscripts and collections of important linguistic texts. Special attention was paid to the historical unity of the cultures of different people separated by vast distances.

The expedition was certainly not a leisurely task; they had to withstand extreme weather conditions, especially when they were travelling through the Himalayas. Local rebels, armed bandits and caravan looters were a constant threat; the expedition lost horses to poisonous grasses and were even very close to losing their own lives.

They endured all this, conquering 35 mountains and crossing the Gobi Desert in search of the mystical kingdom Shambhala. Although Nicholas did not find Shambhala, descriptions of it appear in his writings and depictions can be found in his paintings.

When Nicholas decided to stay in Gulmarg in April 1925, Helena took the opportunity to translate the book ‘Mahatma’s Letters’ from English to Russian. It had been written by A. Trevor Barker based on the letters between the Theosophical Society and two English Theosophists, A. P. Sinnett and A. O. Hume in India.

Helena Blavatsky or Madame Blavatsky was a Russian spiritualist. Her works introduced the Roerichs to Shambhala.

The letters discussed the theosophical cosmos and spiritual hierarchy. In that same year, Helena wrote and published ‘Chalice of the East’ under the pen name Iskander Khanum.

In 1926, the Roerich’s expedition group stayed in Urga, which is known as Ulaanbaatar today. It was here that Helena’s manuscript, ‘Foundations of Buddhism’ was published.

This book presented Helena’s understanding and interpretation of the fundamental teachings and philosophical concepts of Buddha’s teachings. It explained complex Buddhist principles and the moral foundation of the Buddha’s teachings in a simple, easy-to-understand manner, and this ignited the West’s interest in Buddhism. The following year, one of the series of the Living Ethics books called ‘Community’ was published at this same place. Needless to say, Helena was one of the pioneers who played an important role in introducing Buddhism to the West.

When the Roerichs had completed their Central Asian expedition, they decided to stay on in the Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh, India. This is where they established the Institute of Himalayan Studies – Urusvati, which in Sanskrit means ‘Light of the Morning Star’.

nstitute of Himalayan Studies, ‘Urusvati’, which in Sanskrit means ‘Light of the Morning Star’. Today, it houses the memorial research library compiled by the Roerichs, and several zoological and botanical collections. It is also considered the Himalayan Folk Art Museum, and exhibitions like The History of the ’Urusvati’ Institute, The Roerich Pact: History and Modernity, and Nicholas Roerich: Life and Creative Work have been held here.

Helena was the Honorary President-Founder of Urusvati and she was actively involved in organising the work and research conducted at the institute. Since she was both an art connoisseur and a philosopher, she understood very well the scientific problems researchers would face and would often direct their research herself. Her main focus was the study of ancient Eastern philosophies.

Urusvati focused its studies on the Asian region which has had a substantial influence on the development of world culture. The complex study of the human psyche and physiological aspects were one of the main subjects studied at Urusvati.

Helena had a dream and a vision of a city of knowledge and wisdom in the Kullu Valley, which would be an international centre for philosophy and science. This dream came true when Urusvati became a well-known institute where famous philosophers and scientists from all over the world would congregate, share and teach.

Rabindranath Tagore, Jagadish Chandra Bose, Albert Einstein, Robert Andrews Millikan, Louis de Broglie, S. Gedin, R. Magoffin, N.I. Vavilov and S.I. Metalnikov were some of the brilliant scholars and scientists who collaborated at Urusvati.

When Helena was in Kullu, she focused on writing her book, Living Ethics. The great laws of the cosmos, the meaning of human life, the importance of culture for human evolution, and mankind’s great teachers were some of the contents of Living Ethics.

Another very important subject Helena worked on was Cryptograms of the East, written in Russian and published in Paris in 1929 under another pen name Josephine Saint-Hilaire. It has been published in English as On Eastern Crossroads: Legends and Prophecies of Asia.

In this book, Helena presented the mythical legends and fables of great spiritual teachers and Enlightened Beings who have inspired the world and taught mankind invaluable lessons. Buddha, Christ, St. Sergius of Radonezh, Apollonius of Tyana and Akbar the Great all appear in this tome. With deep reverence for St. Sergius of Radonezh, the saviour and defender of Russia, she wrote and dedicated a special essay called ‘The Banner of St. Sergius of Radonezh’ to him.

 

Helena’s Later Years

helena25

Helena spent the first half of 1930 translating two volumes of Helena Blavatsky’s fundamental work, ‘Secret Doctrine’ from English to Russian. Helena’s letters to over 140 people from different parts of the world give incredible insight into the inner thoughts and sound logic of a woman who was a pioneer in so many fields.

These letters contain answers to all kinds of questions from friends, cultural workers, her followers and even political leaders. She explains complex philosophical views, problems that scientists face, and the foundations of Living Ethics.

In 1940, a book titled ‘Letters of Helena Roerich’ was published in Russian in two volumes. Later, the complete set was translated into English and published by the International Centre of the Roerichs. This is also where all of Helena’s precious letters are safely kept today.

It was during Nicholas Roerich’s Manchurian expedition that Helena wrote to many international organisations to garner support for the Roerich Pact. The Roerich Pact is an international agreement, a treaty to protect historical monuments as well as artistic and scientific institutions.

The signing of the Roerich Pact, which was the first international treaty dedicated to the protection of artistic and scientific institutions and historical monuments. The Pact was signed by 21 countries, including the President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt.

Helena’s hard work paid off when the leaders of 21 countries, including the President of the United States, Franklin Roosevelt, signed the Roerich Pact on April 15, 1935.

Nicholas Roerich passed away on December 13, 1947. This unfortunate event led Helena and her eldest son George to move to Delhi, and after that to Khandala in 1949. Eventually, they settled in a quaint little hill station on the Eastern Himalayan slopes called Kalimpong, north of Bengal. Helena liked living in Kalimpong; she was fond of the locals and integrated well with the Gurkhas, Bengalis and Tibetans living there.

She lived in the two-storey ‘Crookety House’ built in the 1940s by the British. The last few years of her life were spent here working, writing, painting and meditating.

Today, Helena’s Crookety House is a museum that attracts many artists and visitors from all over the world. A visitor from the U.K., Ian Graham, wrote an interesting review on a popular travel site saying, “The atmosphere in the house is one of tremendous stillness. One goes almost immediately into a meditative state on entering.”

She felt that her work on earth was to spread the teachings of Agni Yoga’s Living Ethics.

“I exist only due to the ray of the Great Master, who said it was necessary for me to remain because no one could replace me as I worked under the highest Cosmic Sign, and this century was in need of my attainment.”

Although Helena loved living in India, she had hoped to one day return to her homeland, Russia. She wanted to bring back all the treasures she had collected during her expeditions, and to share her experiences with her fellow Russians.

When Helena lived with her son George, after Nicholas’s passing, they tried to board a steamboat to return to Russia but their visas were denied. In her later years, Helena wrote several times to the Soviet Embassy to attempt to return home, but never received a reply.

It is indeed unfortunate that her own country refused such a brilliant philosopher who contributed so much toward the development of arts, culture, science and human consciousness.

The Crookety House in Kalimpong where Helena spent the last few years of her life working, writing, painting, and meditating is now a museum which attracts visitors from all over the world.

Helena’s Death

Helena was almost 70 when she moved to Kalimpong and her health started to deteriorate. However, she never showed any outward signs of illness. On October 5, 1955, at age 76, Helena Roerich passed away. It is said that she experienced two heart attacks in her sleep.

Following her wishes, Helena’s body was cremated and her ashes were placed in a stupa in Zang Dhok Palri Phodang Buddhist Monastery in West Bengal, India. On the stupa is an inscription that reads, “Helena Roerich, the wife of Nicholas Roerich, thinker and writer, old friend of India.”

Even her funeral was a melting pot of cultures – Indians, Chinese, Afghans, Tibetans, Mongols, Nepalis, Bhutanese and Japanese people came to pay their last respects to Helena. Seeing the amount of people who came really touched her sons, George and Svetoslav, as well as her daughter-in-law Devika Rani, a famous Indian actor, very much.

Svetoslav Roerich, the second son of the Roerich’s married Devika Rani, a renowned Indian actress, producer and singer. They were married for almost 50 years.

Famous author and healer, Ruth Drayer, wrote in her book, Nicholas and Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers that Helena “worked heroically to consolidate the (family’s) spiritual legacy for future safekeeping.”

The more we discover about Helena, the more we are inspired by her as someone deeply attuned to the spiritual world. Her selfless courage is evident in her efforts to ensure that creative and philosophical institutions, as well as teachings, were preserved and protected for posterity. There is no doubt that Helena Roerich has left an indelible mark on this planet through her many contributions to the evolution of the human spirit, arts and culture.

The Great Gotama gave to the world a complete Teaching of the perfect construction of life. Each attempt to make a god of the great revolutionist, leads to absurdity. Previous to Gotama there was, of course, a whole succession of those who bore the common welfare, but their teachings crumbled to dust in the course of millenniums. Therefore the Teaching of Gotama should be accepted as the first teaching of the laws of matter and the evolution of the world.

    Helena Ivanovna Roerich was a Russian philosopher, writer, and public figure. She was the daughter of a prominent architect at that time. Roerich grew up and was educated in rich cultural traditions of her family. Since childhood she was inquisitive, independent and purposeful. Extremely talented in many ways played piano with great excellence and by the age of seven could even read and write in three languages. Wow…she even started reading artistic, historical, spiritual and philosophic books. She must be someone with outstanding abilities from her previous life. Her life journey was truly inspiring and amazing , was an author of many books.
    Interesting read of a great Russian philosopher Helena Roerich. I have booked marked this article, to read those books written by her.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    This is my first time to heard about the Roerich’s family. It’s amazed that they were the one who worked out the signing of the Roerich Pact, the first international treaty dedicated to the protection of artistic and scientific institutions and historical monuments, which also involved the leaders of 21 countries, including the President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt. I’m very into art and spiritual world, I feel thankful for what the Roerich’s family did.

    I admire the adventurous of the family too, they were great explorers, with also intelligent. They had lots of expeditions, were even very close to losing their own lives. But they never discouraged by all the obstacles, conversely they endured and conquered all of it. The wife, Helena did a lot translating work, from English to Russian. She letters to over 140 people from different parts of the world. I feel the strong faith to offer of this family, they are really committed to what they can contributed to the world.

    I can related when she felt that her work on earth was to spread the teachings of Agni Yoga’s Living Ethics. She was clear with her life purpose to worked under the highest Cosmic Sign. Their journeys has shown through the paintings, the energy of Helena inspire me a lot, its like the path I would love to live and go through.

    No outsiders know more about Himalaya before the Roerich. As people say, the family are the pioneers who introduced Himalaya to the world. Their contributions to the evolution of the human spirit, arts and culture, make India see them as old friend of India. Hope I have a chance to visit Helena’s stupa and also would like to read more about her.

    Helena Roerich , a multi-talented Russian writer, artist, theosophist, intrepid explorer, healer and philosopher, was a great inspiration to her husband Nicholas throughout their lives.
    I wonder what kind of karma she had or the life she had lived before this life for her to be spiritual since young.Thank you for the inspiring article.

    Although I haven’t read the book of hers but as one of the pioneers who explored Buddhism in the East such as in Tibet, Mongolia and China~ places where mostly untouched by the outer worlds, I have a feeling that whatever her experiences, thoughts and feelings that she had gained were genuinely pure without much fabrication.

    I would like to read more about her and also Madame Blavatsky when I can find the time. Learning Dharma just by reading consumes quite a bit of my time but I love to read. When I read, I will know more about their culture and especially the reasoning behind their journey and their Dharma knowledge and practices. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/madame-blavatsky-mother-of-modern-spirituality.html

    Will come back with more thoughts on this. Maybe will download a book or two from here ~ there’s a section dedicated for this featuring some of her books by of the Agni Yoga Society. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/free-downloads-texts

    Helena Roerich’s life was rich with adventures and contributions to the society through her many talents, like artistic, linguistic and her extraordinary comprehension on philosophical and spiritual topics. It is an inspiring article. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Wai Meng Wan on Dec 31, 2017 at 12:19 am

    It is so inspiring to read the story of the Roerichs, they contributed so much to the modern spiritual movement of today. The Roerich gave their lives to the service of others so it is inspiring to read.

  9. Pastor Antoinette on Dec 10, 2017 at 6:24 pm

    This is truly an inspiring lifestory. Although Helena Roerich has done so much and translated so many works into Russian, she was refused to visit her homeland Russia again.

    Her writings, paintings and works have inspired many and together with her husband Nicholas Roerich, they have created many important works such as the Institute of Himalayan Studies, ‘Urusvati’, ‘Light of the Morning Star’ in Sanskrit language.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Joy for this meaningful article.

  10. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Dec 7, 2017 at 3:14 am

    It is only fitting that Helena Roerich and her husband Nicholas are referred to as artists and peacemakers on a spiritual journey together in this life in a book about them and their works by Ruth Drayer -“Nicholas and Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers”.

    Helena Roerich , a multi-talented Russian writer, artist, theosophist, intrepid explorer, healer and philosopher, was a great inspiration to her husband Nicholas throughout their lives. Her two sons , greatly influenced and inspired by Helena and Nicholas ,worked strenuously to preserve the powerful legacies of their parents.

    One of Helena Roerich’s most outstanding contributions to the world was the setting up of the Institute of Himalayan Studies – URUSVATI, which in Sanskrit means ‘Light of the Morning Star’ in the Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh, India. This institute became an international centre for philosophy and science to which great philosophers and scientists came to share and corroborate -great names like Rabindranath Tagore and Albert Einstein were involved with this institute.

    Another outstanding contribution was the Roerich Pact, “the first international treaty dedicated to the protection of artistic and scientific institutions and historical monuments”. The Pact was signed by leaders of 21 countries, including the President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt.

    Her spiritual works included ‘Chalice of the East’ ,’Living Ethics’ and ‘Foundations of Buddhism’ . There was an indomitable spirituality that abided in her and she lived her live expressing it tirelessly and selflessly through her works and her endeavours.

    An inspiring lady indeed, is Helena Roerich. She really must ahve been amazing to make her life so rich and encapsulating it in her writings. I wonder what kind of karma she had or the life she had lived before this life for her to be spiritual since young. And, to have this thirst and focus for the philosophies of the east and spirituality.

    Thank you, Joy for an inspiring read.

  12. Samfoonheei on Nov 30, 2017 at 12:52 pm

    Helena Ivanovna Roerich was a Russian theosophist, writer, and public figure. In the early 20th century .

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche and the blog team. It was such a wonderful and interesting article about the honorable Helena biography and her career as writer and translator. With just her simple career that makes everyone remember her and she was cremenated and put into stupa after she passed away. Great to know about Helena background and about her family and illnesses too. A remarkable biography and she even writes so many books. Wow. ?

    Thanks you for the incredible tales of Ji Gong, I truly enjoyed knowing the actual monk in picture. Ji Gong symbolised hope and kindness of dharma to the poor and underprivileged, the spirit of Ji Gong will continue to survive through time because nothing could destroy that.

    I had fascinated watching a number of movies that had related Ji Gong kindness, compassion and his skillful actions that had such a large influence in the world and that until today.

    Dorje Shugden was one of their main protector practices and considered an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. There has been an unbroken tradition of the practice of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector since early 1700 till now. We are fortunate we learn, practice of purifying, pacifying and removing obstacles and illnesses. All thanks to our Lama Tsem Rinpoche, bringing the practice to Malaysia. Dorje Shugden had been propitiated by Sakya lineage 18th centuries ago. Dorje Shugden has been viewed as an Enlightened Protector. Evidence from the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission.
    comes from none other than the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission. The Sakya lineage holders are considered to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, and their family lineage is regarded as divine. They had propitiated Dorje Shugden as a fully enlightened being and composed a praise to him. This prayer has since achieved prominence and is still widely used today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing as it is marvelous to read that the supreme Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden is none sectarian. As confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen (1871 – 1935) who wrote,
    The Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Tsel definitively is Avalokiteshvara.

    Beautiful White Tara paintings by a very talented artist indeed . Love those paintings , merely looking at it is a blessing. Each of those paintings has it unique way which tells us a thousand words. White Tara is associated with maternal compassion and healing. In many representations, she has eyes in the palms of her hands and on the soles of her feet, as well as in the center of her forehead, representing her power to see those who are suffering and offer her aid.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and explaining all about it for us to understand better.

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .

    It is quite a task to complete this as it requires a lot of effort and energy to input into the various collection of materials to complete the wealth vase and the wealth box.

    Very exciting news! H E kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back. This young incarnation pay a visit to Trode Khangsar Chapel and makes offerings of gold to Djorje Shugden. This 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel was built and dedicated to Dorje Shugden the Powerful Dharma Protector. Offering gold to sacred images is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. He held on strongly to his faith, devotion and respect for the Dorje Shugden. It is indeed inspiring to read and know that great masters are coming back. It brings so much hope and deepens faith that these Tulkus are back, life after life. As claimed by the Tibetan leadership that anyone practicing Dorje Shugden one will take rebirth into the lower realms. That’s wrongly says . Interesting post.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting read even not so scary afterall. But someone who have not experience before seeing a dark swirling ‘entity’ that was not exactly the shape of human will be frozen to death. Not for me as I do have Ds pendant with me and chanting Mantras helps me. Most hotels do have special unwanted guests . I did experienced this before while staying in old hotels .

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

    5 yearss ago
    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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
