Interesting houses and their occupants in the mountains

Jan 4, 2019 | Views: 21,521

Dear friends around the world,

Since a very young age I have always been fascinated and drawn to mountains, rivers, placid lakes and forests. I remember that during art class in school I drew many different types of pictures with crayon and paint of mountains and forests, and of yogis and ascetics meditating there.

Even now, I like to go on the internet and search for various pictures of houses in mountains. This is because my wish is to always live in the mountains and to reside there as a hermit. I would not even mind being around a community of like-minded and spiritually inclined people. That would be very nice.

I have collected a lot of pictures of various houses set among the greens and I put fictional captions underneath them describing the scene as if live there or my neighbours live there. These are just from my imagination and for fun. The captions simply accompany the pictures to make them more interesting.

I hope you enjoy it and remember that everything is fictional. It is just something that I enjoy fantasizing about.

I love the area here outside my house. There's lots of nagas but they are the friendly sort and they stay right inside the like behind the tree on the right.

I have chickens in the garden and they are entertaining to watch cluck around the grass. And there are no snakes here to be attracted.

I walk down this road daily with a few dharma friends and we discuss the works of Alexandra David-Neel and Nagarjuna. Lovely morning walks. I look forward to these walks and discussions daily. I enjoy and admire the works of Alexandra David-Neel so much. Nagarjuna's works if studied carefully, frees one from the deepest of sufferings we can make for ourselves.

This is a summer road behind my house and it is hot but not humid and not wet. It is very mild. I love the greens of nature that soothe my eyes tremendously. At the end of the road there is a small bigfoot colony. And we leave them alone and they leave us alone. Occasionally I leave apples out for them blessed by mantra.

Food blessed by mantra blesses the individual and helps them along their spiritual journey either in this life or future lives. In the case of animals, when we give food blessed by mantras, we help them to create blessings to take rebirth as a human to practice Dharma in their future lives.

Dawa goes out every morning to pluck wild flowers to bring back and offer to the Buddha statue outside near the tree.

Dawa goes out every morning to pluck wild flowers to bring back and offer to the Buddha statue outside near the tree. Dawa does meditations on Vajra Yogini in the evenings and he lives nearby in this little red house. We offer him fresh vegetables weekly to sustain his meditations.

On the side of the house we keep 30 patches of vegetables. The is just one patch. The tomatoes are so sweet and we never buy veggies from the supermarket anymore. Our veggies have no pesticides and chemicals and bursting with sunshine, wind and nutrients. We make fresh salad to offer Dorje Shugden daily.

Making offerings of food to the Buddhas is a way of showing our gratitude for our bounty.

I have some spiritual friends who live in this house down the road. We get together to meditate, do monthly Dorje Shugden pujas and paint Vajra Yogini paintings. We sometimes play monoply too!

Some of the ladies walking around are extremely beautiful and they wear ornaments that shine like what this lama is wearing. It is a Vajra Yogini/Heruka tantric dress. They are always around this nun's house and the rainbows last a few hours.

Some of us visit this old monk who lives in this house. We offer to help him cut wood. He has been meditating on Vajra Yogini for over 20 years and it is said that he has reached the end of his resultant stage practice. He is often seen speaking to animals and invisible beings who come from the forest. He has a direct but kind demeanor. We also offer him delicious vegetables we grow in our garden. We feel honored to sustain his practice with food. He does not eat meat or take any animal products. When someone in our community is not well, he gives blessed water and when they drink the water, people feel much better and heal.

I have breakfast on this porch daily with Oser and Dharma. Mumu's statue is here too so Mumu is with us. I am going to put a large 9ft Zong Rinpoche statue outside the porch with a gentle awning. So I can offer 100k butterlamps to my guru and develop the causes to gain highest attainments.

Now I have two more Schnauzers Oser girl and Dharma boy.

There is a lovely and holy nun who lives in this house up the road. She has been in a 9 year Vajra Yogini retreat. We rarely see her but on tsok days we visit her to get her blessings. She places her mala on our heads and we always feel great bliss. She will do another few years of retreats she said. We often see rainbows above her house and there is no rain or clouds. We often see beautiful ladies dressed in something tantric walking around or 'delivering' things to her house. When we show up, these ladies disappear very fast and we cannot figure out who they are. Someone mentioned perhaps they are dakinis who arrived from Bodhgaya visiting this nun and bringing offerings to expediite her tantric attainments. We all grow vegetables and offer to this and nun and we do all the marketing for her. It is an honor to make offerings to her and she accepts our support.

Daily when I sit outside and see this view, I drop tears of happiness. I drop tears of happiness daily and feel so fortunate. I want to live longer and keep my health balanced so I can live here longer. Daily I sit on this porch and I do 10,000 Dorje Shugden mantras. After reciting the mantras I offer this view to Dorje Shugden. Then I dissolve Dorje Shugden and he melts into a golden small orb. Very bright orb. This orb enters my crown, descends down my central channel (ushnisha) and I feel my winds collect, gather and I stay within this meditation for 30 mins or so. I feel light and totally aware of my surroundings yet I am in deep meditation. Then I release the winds. I am able to see my actions clearly. I am able to let go of stronly held projections and feel at peace. Then I do my dedication and have some peppermint tea with honey. Oser and Dharma are sunbathing in the grass quietly nearby and hoping for a snack. They will get a snack for sure.

This morning I lit 100 butterlamps to Medicine Buddha and did a Medicine Buddha puja in my garden under the trees and dedicated the whole thing to my beloved Mumu boy. I will hope to meet him again in our future lives. I hope to meet his new birth person in my current life too.. I hope he takes rebirth near His Holiness Pabongka Rinpoche and gets teachings on Vajra Yogini from Pabongka Rinpoche. I hope Mumu will do retreats and gain very high realizations and be released. I love you Mumu.

I hope Mumu will do retreats and gain very high realizations and be released. I love you Mumu. I will always remember and love you my dear Mumu boy.

May my Mumu meet His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka's current incarnation.

May everyone and my Mumu meet His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka’s current incarnation. May all beings be blessed to receive teachings in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche infallible lineage.

This will be Mumu's meditation house in his next life. He will do deep meditations on Vajra Yogini and gain visions of her. He will be safe and be loved and taken care of by her always. He will make offerings to her and benefit numerous sentient beings in his future life and lives.

For this month's Dorje Shugden puja, we will all sit here looking out onto the peaceful lake.

Another friend just built this house with the creek nearby to enter into a Four Preliminaries retreat. He will do 100,000 of Guru Yoga, water offerings, Vajrasattva, Mandala offerings, prostrations and so forth. He will also do 100,000 recitations of 35 Confessional Buddhas. I rejoice so much in the powerful retreats he will engage in.

This house is nearby and several students want to move in too. They are recovering from surgery and decided the city is too polluted. They have given up ciggies, alcohol, meat, white flour, sugar and processed foods. They realize their ill health is due to living in the city with pollution of the air, earth and water. They are now practicing Tai Chi, Manjushri retreats and also fasting. They will get well. The divination says they will get well if they follow this program and we will support them in all this.

An old monk from Gaden Monastery lives in this retreat house. He focuses 80% of the day meditating on Lam Rim, Tsongkapa mantra recitation and Yamantaka. Often we see his house surrounded by opaque 'fires'. Someone said it is Kalarupa manifesting to guard this monk while he enters deeper levels of Tsongkapa and Yamantaka completion stage meditations. Often people see buffaloes roaming around his house yet when we get closer, there are none. We often go to clean his house and bring wood to him. We bring him fresh flowers and veggies from our garden daily. This old monk loves squashes and pumpkins. Many times he will blow mantras on our heads and we feel light and remain in bliss for a few minutes. This monk has lead a life of purity, meditation and dharma and we are so lucky to have him live in our community. I love monks and nuns. I love the holy sangha and making offerings to them.

I am removing the bed from here. This is my meditation room and my room where I keep my most precious dharma books. It is my favorite room because I can look out onto the forest. In the distance we can see bigfoots often and we can identify them from other forest creatures as they have glowing red eyes. They often come nearby if we are not making alot of noise during our monoply games. Besides apples they like lettuce from our garden too. You wouldn't think so, but they do. They bring us horns of animals that had died naturally. From these horns we make small Vajra Yogini and Manjushri and Dorje Shugden pendants to wear. To carve one pendant from the horns takes about a week. They usually leave the horns at our doorstep. I guess it is kinda of a gift from them to us as we give them apples and lettuces. Bigfoots are friendly but shy. They are powerful but never harm the environment. Humans can learn from them. I see them sometimes bring berries to offer to the large Zong Rinpoche statue I have under the tree outside of my porch. They can feel the spiritual energy from these holy statues.

This meditator down the other road is from the US. He is an expert in carving malas from wood especially spruce wood and sandalwood. He makes beautiful malas and we all use the malas for our mantras made by this man. He practices Cakrasamvara and Vajra Yogini for over a decade now. He is very devoted to his practice and hold his refuge, bodhisattva and tantric vows very firm and yet he is so light hearted. He is always smiling and he loves to bake apple pie and make Tibetan tea when we visit. Some cannot handle the Tibetan tea but drink it anyway because this man is so sweet. But his apple pies are heavenly. He always has a sparkle in his eye as he has travelled to Tibet. He stayed in Trode Khangsar (350 year old chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden) in Lhasa for three years. He cleaned the place. He took care of pilgrims. He did black tea daily and he did a one year retreat on Dorje Shugden in this chapel. Naturally he speaks Tibetan. He learned while in Lhasa. The monks of Trode Khangsar were very supportive and took care of him while he was in retreat. It is said when Dorje Shugden took trance of Panglung Kuten and this man was around, Dorje Shugden gave him a deep hug and whispered advice into his ear. Dorje Shugden is very affectionate towards him. He now lives here with us in our community in this beautiful house with greens surrounding him. He has a beautiful German Sheperd that follows him on walks.

A beautiful elderly lady lives here. She will be taking on the vows of a nun soon. She is so fit and strong. She loves to work in the garden.... and look at the clear running stream she has right next to her house. She adores this stream. There are many small fishes in the stream and she feeds them. She said all her life she wanted to be a nun and she lived like one. She has had her hair shaved for the last 30 years. She said preparation for being a nun was to keep her hair shaved. But she worked in her business and made money for her dharma centre and teacher so they can pay the bills. She was happy to do this. She wanted to support her teacher. Now her teacher told her she can retire. She is very devoted to her teacher. We are so happy for her. Her favorite books are the Lam Rim and the biography of Lord Buddha and Naropa. She reads these often and she read the bio of Naropa out loud to the deers that visit her. She leaves celery out for them. They visit her from the nearby forest. Her favorite meditation is Tara. Some say she and Tara have become one due the merits of serving her guru for so long and so devotedly. Some of our community members 'caught' her speaking to her Tara statue on her shrine. When she noticed she was being observed, she stopped. She is humble. She recites the sacred Tara mantra always. She said better to recite mantras than to gossip. She has invited a large Tara statue to put outdoors near the forest so all the animals can circumambulate Tara and be blessed. She sometimes give the oral transmission of 21 Praises to Tara and the Tara mantra. People come from very far to recieve this from her. I guess they can see her Tara nature. I can she recognizes her Tara nature within herself.

Two monks and three geshes lives in this house. The house looks small but it has 7 bedrooms and 5 toilets. These monks and geshes write books. They translate too. They have four young students living with them to help in this project. The young students did not want to join the secular rat race of making money, holidays, buying house, having kids, getting old, sick and just dying. They are exceptional kids because they are not materialistic at all. Beautiful people. They are in their early 20's. They wanted to do more with their lives and so they joined these monks to do translation. They are studying with these monks and their Tibetan written and spoken are becoming top notch! They are just on the other side of the hill about a 15 minute walk from my house. They are in the process of translating the complete teachings of Panchen Sonam Drakpa and Tsongkapa into English, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Korean. They work with other international translators online for these languages.We suport them by bringing fresh vegetables, free range eggs and home made yoghurt to them. Yes we keep around 20 cows that roam on our grassy land for milk, cheese and youghurt. We never take too much milk from the cows so the calves get more than enough. The calves are very fat and happy. The cows too are very happy and free to eat all the grass and roam in the sunshine. They keep the grass trimmed so we don't need to mow the grass. We are so happy with the works these people are doing. So inspiring.

This house is vacant. But soon I am sure some people are going to move into this house within our community. This one is not far from my house about 20 mins walk. Some lady from Luxembourg in Europe in fact inquired if she can move into this house yesterday by email. She said she will pledge to do the gardening and be in charge of all the plants. She said she will cultivate all the veggies for our growing spiritual community. She does not need help. She said her routine is to do Dorje Shugden practice for two hours in the morning daily. After that she cleans her house and cleans her cat. She then is free. She is very consistent with her schedule she says and she said she is alone and she would like to join and I feel she is a beautiful person. I feel she will make us happy and we will make her happy. She will be part of our family. She said she can help in the evenings with the German translations with the geshes. She said she has always wanted to be a nun. She requests to be one in our community. Well I will write back to her to see how this will work out.

This area is around one hour walk from us. Some young people are enjoying nature here. Yes we own this land but we let people just enjoy the space.

This area is around one hour walk from us. Some young people are enjoying nature here. Yes we own this land but we let people just enjoy the space. When young people come from the city to take a break, we allow them to use our land and the rivers. Our rivers are crystal clear as you can see. They shimmer like diamonds in the sunlight.

I have this house ready for a few older people in our community. It is wheelchair friendly. They will enjoy the garden and reciting Om Mani Peme Hungs on the porch.

There was an old man here with his brother. He was around 90 and his brother 85. Very healthy and fit the both of them. We visited them this morning and the elder one has passed away during his Vajra Yogini retreat. The incredible thing is he was 6ft tall but his body has shrunk down to 12 inches, not decomposing and enveloped by rainbow lights. The Dorje Shugden oracle said he has ascended to Kechara Paradise during bardo which is the transition period of death and birth. This morning Vajra Yogini knocked on their door. When he saw her in a form of a older woman, he recognized her immediately as she had orange darting eyes and he lept at her and hugged her his brother saw and related to us. Next thing you know. He sat down and folded his hands and passed away immediately peacefully. The lady disappeared. After passing, his body started to shrink and many rainbows appeared. His 5 feet Vajra Yogini statue in his room on the shrine has some water (perhaps nectar) dripping from her mouth this morning the brother recounted to our astonished ears. A good omen. Namo Guru Buddha Vajra Yogini. Praise to the Buddha Goddess Vajra Yogini who leads her disciples to a place that never knows suffering. We are going to miss this elderly man. As eccentric as he was, he was very kind. But we know he will be in a better place. He has a wife and two kids (a boy and girl). They are practitioners too but in retreat in Nepal for the last 5 years. We will inform them. His brother who is asthmatic will continue to live in the house and we will watch over him. He is in retreat on Vajra Yogini too. Such beautiful people on our land. So many stories of people on our land to share. But that is it for today. Tsem Rinpoche

Our neighbours Indira and Ramesh really love dogs. They have many dogs although you only see one here. They are great devotees of Tsongkhapa’s guru yoga practice. In their spare time they pickle a lot the of vegetables we have here in our community. I love visiting them sometimes to have Dharma discussions.

Mr. Wong has a small house on the other side of the hill as you see here. He has a great library with over 800 books on many subjects. We love to enjoy his generosity because he allows us to borrow his books. He amazingly is very deft in his handiwork with wood. So, he makes many of the wooden furniture we need. Mr. Wong has been meditating on Avalokitesvara seriously for a few years now. He has completed over 15 million Om Mani Peme Hung mantras!

Kiyoko use to work in a large department store in Tokyo. After reading many Dharma books, she realised her calling was not to live her life in the hustle and bustle of the endless city. She enjoyed being with her friends but there was a deep sense of loneliness that she felt. She encountered books by Ekai Kawaguchi who visited Tibet and she was hooked. She knew her destiny was to meditate, and find a solution for her loneliness not in more friends but awakening the mind of enlightenment within herself. She promptly took the Lam Rim as her guide and engages in Lam Rim retreats in her home daily. She makes many offerings of water on her shrine to Amitabah Buddha. This is a Buddha her mother worshiped, except in Japan they called him Amida.

There is a European princess who lives in this house about 1km away from us. I will not tell you her name as she likes anonymity. For a royal, she is very humble. She spends her days meditating on Medicine Buddha. When she first joined our community here in the mountains, she had some ailments that western medicine could not relieve. She was given Medicine Buddha practice and after practising daily, over 90% of her ailments are gone. She loves feeding the wild deer and going for long walks. She is here to stay and she is more than willing to help with chores for seniors in our community. What a beautiful person.

I really love the clean clear water running near this house. I wanted to share this picture as the water attracted me very much. This house is not in the mountains but it’s very green. A German banker resides here with his partner. They both engage in serious Tonglen meditations. I don’t know them well, but I will soon. They are very kind.

Ching Lee from China has been following the Mahayana tradition for decades. She is here living next to this huge big tree which she loves. Ching Lee daily goes tree hugging. Yes, she is a certified tree hugger. But seriously, daily she does intense meditation and mantra recitation on Kuan Yin. She recites the Kuan Yin sutra and mantra daily. She combines this practice with Dorje Shugden as she had some obstacles removed by Dorje Shugden so she finds him very effective to help her on her spiritual journey. She has inherited a great deal of wealth from her grandparents but she donated most of it away to research on cancer, animal farms and a few temples in China. She is very generous and often has a big smile on her face. We can only visit her in the afternoons because during the morning and evening she is meditating on Kuan Yin.

Jack moved in last week. We know he is a computer expert and wanted to live in the mountains near nature and clear skies. He has just started to recite the Heart Sutra daily and focuses on the mantra of perfection. I will find out more.

There is a senior professor of Buddhism living here. He used to live in Lhasa, Tibet for the last 15 years and he studied under several geshes according to the lineage of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. He is working on translating all the 18 volumes of writings by Je Tsongkhapa, as well as the commentaries on Heruka, Yamantaka and Guhyasamaja into English. He is very focused to do this. He told me it will benefit many beings to have these in the English language and eventually Chinese, Japanese and Brazilian.

[Insert Caption here]

There is a gentleman from Nigeria living here with his daughter. He encountered Buddhism when he visited Los Angeles. He has since become Buddhist along with his daughter. He does the meditation of Vajrapani daily. He told me he wishes to accomplish 100 million mantras of Vajrapani before he passes away. I was so inspired. His daughter is excellent in doing reiki healing as well as acupuncture. She studied in NYC and Beijing as her father was a diplomat. She does such wonderful healing.

This house is currently unoccupied and available for someone to move in. We keep it clean and ready. The flowers are overgrown but gloriously beautiful.

[Insert Caption here]

A group of young college graduates live here. I think around 6 of them, all under 30 years old. Their goal in life is conservation of our natural forests. They are here to study the growth of trees in an area free of pollution. They have rented this house for five years and often join in our meditations and prayers.

[Insert Caption here]

Amazing. Water has such good healing energy. To be near water and to hear the sound of water promotes healing. We have a blogger here in this house. We don’t have internet. So he actually writes things and sends them to his company in Malaysia once a month and his staff uploads to his website. He writes on healing through meditation. He is a private man so we leave him to his work and meditations. But don’t you just love the beautiful surroundings of this house. Beautiful.

[Insert Caption here]

This is the only building we have which is three stories. No one is occupying it but we come here to gaze on the purple majesty growing naturally.

[Insert Caption here]

Cosy. Cosy. Cosy is all I can say about this house and the surroundings. There is a person here from Findhorn. She is meditating on Green Tara and blessing the land to produce bountiful harvests for our community. She has accomplished over three million Tara mantras. She has a statue of Tara that has spoken on several occasions. Amazing. I love the beautiful lake and flowers growing naturally around her home. Her meditations do have results!

[Insert Caption here]

Gandy Smith is from Scotland and he often talks to the little people, faeries and elves he said that live abundantly on our land. He does the meditation of Manjushri, the supreme one sitting on a lion. Through his mastery of the Manjushri meditation he has opened his psychic eye and is therefore able to see ethereal beings as well as the little people and so on. He said the little people and faeries are very happy when they hear the chanting of mantras. Gandy is also able to stop and bring rain as and when necessary. We have witnessed this meditational siddhi that he has achieved.

This house is so beautiful. I love everything about his house and land. It is currently serving as guest quarters. When we have short term visitors, they stay here. It’s like our bed and breakfast in the mountains!

    Rinpoche includes someone he loves in his dream home, I feel peace and simple happiness through reading all the captions he wrote. Especially the first one, “There’s lots of nagas but they are the friendly sort and they stay right inside the tree on the right.” This is so cute, like i’m watching a fairy tale but I do believe there are a lot creatures that we cannot see with eyes.

    Then the second captions, he was hoping there are no snakes to attract his beautiful chickens, makes me laugh when think about its often to see snakes around KFR now.
    When I walk in KFR, sometimes I feel its good to have friends to walk with. The walkway pictures that Rinpoche chose feels harmony, I imagine I see Rinpoche walk down the road with a few colleagues that I know, they are having smiley faces. I wish I could join their discussion and deep conversation! I love it. I read some biography about Alexandra David-Neel, her story is interesting. I look forward to discuss this with Kecharian, also surrounding by the nature when doing this. Life is great and meaningful!

    Then not far away from us, we can feel the presence of bigfoots. We pretend not seeing each other but enjoy the silence accompany. I have learn to leave apples out for them and chant mantra on it.

    I’m blessed to stay in this quiet, harmony and sustainable community. I like mountain very much, I should collect the pictures and visualise it like Rinpoche too 🙂

    I love how you do this. I also caption the photos of my upcoming homes in the present tense, as thoughts become things. Thank you.

  3. Faith A Ward on Jun 24, 2020 at 3:05 am

    I do not know much of Buddhism or meditation. I did love seeing the beautiful land you live in and hearing about your community. It sounds so wonderfully peaceful and fulfilling to live with the land and honor and help your neighbors. I wish our whole world would learn to look at the world in this way. I felt a bit of piece just reading through all of your comments about your land and your community.
    thank you, Faith

    • Jacinta Goh on Jun 25, 2020 at 1:35 pm

      Generally, human prefers love, kindness, peace, calm and tranquility. We do not need to know a lot of Buddhism in order to achieve what we wanted. We just need to make that choice. Outwardly, we are like living in a world of chaos. Go inward. Find calm in the chaos. ☺️

      This quote was shared by my Lama (Guru) before I hope it makes sense to you. Be happy…

    Words coupled with imagery has so much power. I found that just reading the words and looking at the pictures I feel so so relaxed. I guess its relaxing when we read about the truth and can see the beauty of this planet of ours.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your creativity and blessing us with so many beautiful scenery images.

  5. Chris on Jan 17, 2019 at 10:26 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these stunning pictures of possible future retreat houses. They are very beautiful and serene. They are perfect for people to engage in deep retreats of their Yidam and live a happy, peaceful and useful life. The picture that Rinpoche had painted for us is alluring and made the readers are eager to engage in a life long retreat with their own Yidam.

    This is the Kechara Forest Retreat that we are working towards here. I can imagine these small retreat hut spouting everywhere in Kechara Forest Retreat when Kecharians engaging in deep retreats in them. Everyone will live harmoniously and support each other.

    What a beautiful community to be in the rest of our lives. I understand Rinpoche’s vision on building such a place now. It will be a spiritual and conscious community where everyone is spiritual and engaging in spiritual activities. Living harmoniously along with each other and support each other on our spiritual path. It will be a Vajrayogini’s Kechara paradise on earth.

    Very interesting each pictures tells us a beautiful stories of occupants staying in the mountains. Beautiful , quiet healthy living environment such as in the mountains is the way we should have live in. A clean and healthy environment in the forest is part and parcel of the wealth and quality of life. A wonderful place for us to mediate and living in such a greener pastures has many health benefits. Scientist have discovered living in the forest is beneficial for our brain and health.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your thoughts with us.

  7. Cc on Jan 6, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    It is such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay and medidate.

    Wish to live in such a peaceful environment and near to mother earth.

  8. Rob on Jan 6, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    This is very beautiful and enjoyable. Now I’m going to send a very beautiful book of poems to Rinpoche by a monk who lived in the mountains hundreds of years ago. Perhaps he will enjoy it so much that he will write about it too! I hope so. Not many people know about this book, but the poems are like blessings! I will post it tomorrow so Rinpoche can share it with you if he likes!

  9. Jacinta on Jan 6, 2019 at 5:59 am

    Although the captions are the imagination of Rinpoche, I do hope it’s for real. It’s like a vision for us to materialise it. Reading it all the way till the last picture of Mother Tara makes me feel warmth and happy.

    In one of the captions, Rinpoche mentioned about Alexander Neel’s and Arya Nagarjuna’s works and it reminds me of them too. Looks like I have some reading to catch up. Thank you Rinpoche.

    • Jacinta Goh on Jun 19, 2020 at 11:41 pm

      Now that Rinpoche has temporarily left us, these little massages are even clearer and make more sense to me.

      We look forward for Your swift return, Rinpoche. 🙏

  10. Tsa Tsa Ong on Jan 4, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    Lovely and relaxing beautiful stories with beautiful pictures to relax a stressful mind. I guess some of the stories are related to some Kecharians. It’s also very inspiring to read these light and entertaining stories. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for this lovely write up??☘️??

  11. yin ping on Jan 4, 2019 at 5:06 am

    Nowadays people are busy with secular work rather than spending time in the spiritual growth. Even if we wish to excel in our spiritual path, no matter how strong the will is to practise the dharma, we need an environment or a supporting community to fulfill our spiritual path.

    Thank you Rinpcohe for sharing with us your thoughts.
    Looking at the beautiful scenery pair together with Rinpoche’s imagination, it is as if i am actually living in one of the houses in this spiritual community, which i wish very much _/\_

    This is kind of hard to believe and shocking to imagine the weirdest addiction of people in this planet, they are extremely strange. People can become addicted to actions, feelings, or behaviors, not just substances. There must be something behind of every addiction, I don’t think they are crazy or mentally ill, it’s their weird enjoyment for a short time.

    I had a friend in my primary school who eats mud during rainy days, she told me, it smells good and she enjoys doing it during her play time. I found it strange but has she grow up in different environment she forget about her addiction. So, I strongly believe, all behaviors can be changed when the person gains self-awareness and actually wants to change. Thanks for the interesting sharing and recall of my childhood friend.

    nteresting read of this history of how Dorje Shugden practice came into light . Since Dorje Shugden was introduced into the Sakya tradition, there have been many Sakya throne holders that practiced Dorje Shugden. Out of the 42 supreme throne holders throughout the history of the Sakya tradition, six of the thrones holders are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They have built chapels to him, composed prayers and pujas (kangsols) to him and even propagated his practice amongst their disciples. They cannot be wrong and in fact as confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being. Dorje Shugden kangsol (prayer) to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden composed by him is still widely used today. Dorje Shugden must be a powerful Dharma protector that Sakya tradition have been long relying. It has proven that Dorje Shugden is not a minor practice. Interesting read , may more people read this post to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post .

    There are lots of people have more than one reason for choosing vegetarianism. Many people choose a vegetarian diet out of concern over animal rights or the environment and others may be based on religious beliefs or even for healthier lifestyle.

    Regardless of whether you choose a vegetarian way of life, it’s always a healthy idea to eat a wide variety of foods and try out new foods when you can.

    Thank you for the sharing and compiling the list of vegetarian restaurants and organic shops in Klang Valley. I am glad to know whereabout and hoping to try them.

    Begtse Chen, a deity of alien origin, was incorporated into the pantheon of Tibetan Buddhism as a protector of the Dharma. This Proyector is one of the eight famous Dharmapala in Tantric Buddhism. Also known as red Mahakala and is especially revered in Mongolia where the origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century. It has become the mainstay of Protector practice in Mongolia. Interesting read.

    Interesting read of Kunkhyen Choku Ozer was a lineage master of the Manjushri Namasamgiti Tantra. He became known as Kunkhyen Choku Ozer due to his ability to penetrate the meaning of the great Buddhist treatises merely just by glancing at it. He could memolised texts just by reading it once. Reading this post and information at least I can know he is also a part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage. He is also famed for establishing the ancient monastery of Dakpo Tsele.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing as many of us would not have known this GREAT Lama was part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teachings on Dorje Shugden and explanation on retreat. Learning and practicing this Dorje Shugden’s practice have indeed benefited many people. And more so when to do a retreat. . We are all very fortunate to be given an opportunity to meet Tsem Rinpoche and learning, practicing all these precious teachings coming from a pure lineage that can be traced back to the time of the great Lama Tsongkhapa. A very detailed explanation on why we need the retreat and the way to do the retreat.
    Thanks again Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Tsem Rinpoche had been working tirelessly teaching Dharma in his whole life, giving many opportunities for us to learn , practice Dharma teachings. Whatever goes wrong we should admit it as our own fault and not our guru. Rinpoche ‘s love to spread Dharma teachings and nothing else. He had followed his advice of his guru to come all the way from India to teach in Malaysia. Reading all those meaningful quotes and sayings in this article tells us a thousand words of truth which we should not take it lightly. We could in fact learn from it and stop blaming others.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    News of UFO always fascinating to me . There are many UFO sighting hotspots exist across the globe, it has long since scientist have a keen interest to investigate further. UFOs has become a modern sensation for hunters , scientist and so forth. There was only the ambiguous testament of witnesses so far all happen and appeared mysteries without any substantial evidence. But the Japanese government has admitted and believes definitely they the UFO exist. Well the Japanese government has even made a statement about alien spacecraft appearing on Earth. Many people have denied the existence of UFOs, but with so many UFO sightings they cannot denied it after all. Sound interesting.
    The Buddha has once said that we are not the only beings in existence and we are not alone on earth. Interesting videos to watch.

He did played a significant role in the fusion of the old Buddhist curriculum existing in Tibet. While Khuton Choje who is well known for the special teachings he requested of Atisha. He is known to have composed a commentary to Atisha’s Satyadvayavatara.

    Thank you for the sharing, fishing is an extremely cruel hobby that causes immense suffering and damage to fish, even when they are released back into the water. However human does not realize what karma befalls but they have great time, fun going fishing.

    I believe children are always eager to learn fast as they grow but parents has to monitor their child’s activity and behavior is especially important when they begin to demand for their choice.

This kind hearted boy has to go through a lot of hassle to fulfill his mission. I felt so proud for Christian and also to his great parents to guide the little boy towards the development of kindness and a good attitude from an early age.

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.

    3 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

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.
