(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Chengdu is the capital of China’s Sichuan province which is located in the southwestern part of China. This beautiful city has a rich culture and history that dates back to as far as the 4th century BCE when it used to serve as the capital for the Shu Kingdom (one of the three major states that competed for supremacy over China during the Three Kingdoms period). Artefacts from that dynasty were unearthed and are now being displayed at the Jinsha Site Museum.

Chengdu is now one of the most powerful economic, cultural and transportation centres in western China. Its airport is one of the 30 busiest airports in the world and Chengdu Railway Station is one of the six biggest in China.

2. Wen Shu Yuan Monastery

The large Wen Shu Monastery was built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE), and was once known as the Xinxiang Temple by the locals. During the reign of Emperor Kangxi, there was a Buddhist monk, Cidu, who came to the temple and built a small hut, where he lived an ascetic’s life. It is said that later, when Cidu was cremated, an image of Manjushri appeared in the fire. Therefore, people regarded Cidu as an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Thereafter, Xinxiang temple was renamed to Wen Shu Monastery, after Manjushri’s name in Mandarin – Wen Shu Pusa.

Since the Tang and Song dynasties, there have been hundreds of paintings, artwork and calligraphy pieces exhibited at Wen Shu Monastery which makes this unique landmark alluring to historical art lovers. Amongst all the precious relics, they also exhibit a piece of broken skull belonging to Xuan Zhang, a famous Buddhist monk of the Tang Dynasty which is the rarest of the rare. The monastery houses hundreds of intricate and sacred Buddha statues that have made it through history, one of them the exquisite jade Buddha statue that was brought to China from Burma in 1922 by Xing Lin.

Du Fu is one of the most famous poets of China who lived during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE). The thatched cottage was home to Du Fu a thousand years ago. After escaping from the An-Shi Rebellion, he fled to Cheng Du and with the help of friends and the locals, the thatched cottage was built in 760 CE for him. During his stay there, he has composed over 200 poems which now are recognised as national treasures.

Hundreds of years later during the Song Dynasty, a temple was built on the original location to commemorate such a talented and unique individual. Ever since then, the site has been renovated and expanded from time to time. There were two major reconstructions in 1500 and 1811 respective.

    Visiting Chengdu is truly exotic and exciting, I was there a few months back I saw it myself. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center. Its a good place if one would like to see the Pandas even though it a bit far away from town area. But it is really worth seeing it. The Chengdu Wuhou Shrine, Manjushri Monastery, Du Fu Thatched Cottage are some of the attraction at Chengdu. Chengdu is famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes as well.

    Chengdu is one of the three most popular cities in Western China, where the other two cities are Chongqing and Xi’an. I only came to know about Chengdu when there was an earthquake occurred in Sichuan province in 2008. It is totally affected and gave much challenges to China in protecting this fragile population at that moment.

    From this post, we have 10 attractive places to visit and it is not limited to visit Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Thank you Rinpoche and the team to provide this useful information about Chengdu.

  7. Anne Ong on Jun 14, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting and beautiful article of Chengdu. I have always heard of Chengdu from friends who goes there for company trips,but have not seen such amazingly beautiful pictures of Chengdu before. I love the temples,museum artifacts and scenery. Am always happy to see beautiful places which I’m unable to visit ._/\_

  8. Lim Han Nee on Jun 10, 2017 at 10:16 pm

    I would visit exotic and exciting Chengdu , with its beautiful scenic mountain, lakes and lovely trees,wildlife – lovely pandas, storks and cranes, a poet’s thatched cottage, historical places and cultural treasures – memorials, temples,museums,above-ground mausoleum, archaeological sites and ancient architectural structures and monuments!

    At Du Fu Thatch Cottage, I would drink in the memory of this poet of historical renown composing his 200 over poems here, which have now become national treasures!

    At Wen Shu Yuan Monastery, I would recall the holy being and monk, Cidu, who came here from Emperor Kiangxi’s area, to practice in austerity as an ascetic, and ,upon whose cremation,an image of Manjushri appeared. Thus was he seen as an emanation of Manjushri and thus was this temple renamed after Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom!

    Standing in the grounds of Wuhou Memorial Temple, I would imagine that it was here that historically famed military strategist Zhuge Liang planned his brilliant strategies!At this point, I would recall how , as a general, with only 100 troops, he was able to successfully defend a town against 150,000!His brilliant strategy was to hide his men, fling open the gates and just sit on the walls, and play his lute! Just as he anticipated,the opposing general thought it was a trap.. So he ordered his huge army to retreat!

    Above all, I would spend time enjoying the pandas and the beauty of the storks and cranes in this rare place, where all this lovely wildlife is being preserved!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post on the exotic exciting city of Chengdu.

  9. Samfoonheei on Jun 6, 2017 at 12:04 am

    Wow…..looking through those beautiful pictures and reading the article of Chengdu,its worth going there. I always love seeing beautiful architecture of ancient buildings.Chengdu is a beautiful city with rich culture and history back dated to centuries ago. There’s so much Chengdu can offer for tourist and local as its a cultural centre ,with ancient artifacts , unique architecture and many historical sites.
    I have not been to there yet,would love to visit some day as there also beautiful monasteries and the beautiful breeding ground of the giant pandas at the research center .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these exotic and exciting city of Chengdu.

  10. William Chua on Jun 5, 2017 at 11:49 am

    One of the cities I want to visit. This article make we want to go there now. LOL.

    This guide is good for people who wants to start researching to go to Chengdu. The places to visit is a must and must be included in your itinerary. China is progressing so fast and they have not neglected their culture and preservation in the name of progress. The Pandas recently are no longer classified as endangered species all due the their efforts. All historical sites are also well preserved and taken cared of as we can see from the pictures.

  11. Vivian Ong on Jun 5, 2017 at 1:17 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about Chengdu. I’m amazed with their culture, architectures and sceneries. China is so big that they have so much space to built temples and monasteries and also to built sanctuaries for the animals so that they will feel more comfortable to their natural habitat. Chengdu is a really must visit place if given the chance. It is so interesting to visit and learn about other people’s culture. It is also bless to visit some of the pilgrimage sites for example the Wen Shu Yuan Monastery.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  12. wan wai meng on Jun 3, 2017 at 11:44 pm

    I am intrigued to read about the Chengdu, it is a beautiful state in China. Its defintely a sanctuary for the Red Panda and Giant Pandas.

    Giant Pandas incidentally are no longer endangered, the Red Panda is in danger of extinction due to a variety of human related activities. I hope the Chinese will preserve this very unique animal and I know they can do it.

    I also liked that there is temple to Zhuge Liang, a military genius, he has almost never been bested in the field of battle or strategy. He was the stuff of legends, in terms of his insight into military strategy.

    The last one is a museum of the Shu artifacts, some of the bronze artifacts look quite distinctly non human, why would artisans create stuff based on something on something that does not exist? I think thats very intriguing.

  13. Jacinta Goh on Jun 3, 2017 at 7:20 am

    Looks like Chengdu itself has many attractions. Although pilgrimages to places like Buddha’ s birthplace, Tibet and Wutai Shan in China are on my top list, but if I happened to be in Chengdu, may I recall this article so that I can visit these places. Thank you Rinpoche and others.

  14. Fong on Jun 1, 2017 at 11:18 pm

    Chengdu looks like a very happening place with loads of interesting sights for all. A lot of history and nature. loved the pandas and koi fishes. Wonder if it is possible to travel comfortably without knowledge of the local language.

    Thank you for an interesting tour online.

    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.

    Thank you for the unique interior design of Tao Restaurant in New York. I am very much fascinated to see the huge Buddha statue in this restaurant.

    The design idea is as such that able to bring versatile atmosphere to life. It also has a significant influence on customer experience because it includes planning the layout of the restaurant.

    Looking at the design itself very much suit to a Vegetarian Restaurant.

    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.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    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 .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring article.

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful experience of making the wealth vase and the wealth box. A Wealth Box represents the divine abode of the wealth deities.

    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.

    I had a lot information about this beneficial ritual which generates the energy to acquire resources for the proliferation of Dharma.

    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 .

    Odiyan Retreat Center is a 1000-acre spiritual home for the Dharma in the West and to support Buddhist centers and practitioners in Asia. Founded by Venerable Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche in 1975, the Odiyan way of life integrates creative and challenging work, with a path of self-exploration. Built entirely by volunteers from all around the world . They work in service of peace and harmony for all life, through the creation, preservation, and activation of ancient wisdom symbols and teachings. An amazing site where it is a living mandala, a sacred symbol found in Tibetan Buddhist culture. This mandala contains five temples and thousands of other sacred symbols. The community volunteers work tirelessly to maintain the mandala so as the benefits of this ancient stream of teachings remain alive. This center provides countless invitations to integrate mindfulness and meditation into everyday experience. Truly wonderful concept indeed. A place with beautiful architecture, temples , a diversity of plant life and animal friends as well. Interesting read . Hopefully our very own Kechara Forest Retreat Center will grow to be like Odiyan Center .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The interesting thing about a dream is that, as long as you do not stop trying to reach it, it is going to come true. The imagination from a dream and to a painting turn to be real. An authentic form of Manjushri stunning statue now took place in the centre of a beautiful pond, sending waves of blessing to all sentient beings in Kechara Forest Retreat and its surroundings environment.

    May all those who come to see Lord Manjushri receive the blessings of the three principal paths as intended through the aspirational prayers made based on Rinpoche’s kind advice.

    Mother Mary Teresa , known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary who had dedicated to life in helping the destitute and dying in the slums of Calcutta,now known as Kolkata. During her lifetime Mother Teresa was well known for all her humanitarian efforts, her motivations. She set up soup kitchens, a leper colony, orphanages, and a home for the dying destitute. Inspiring indeed she educated the poorest of the poor, and fed the homeless. Considered as one of the 20th Century’s greatest humanitarians, she was canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. For more than 50 years she had comforted the poor, the dying, and the unwanted around the world. From Calcutta to New York, Albania ,Yemen and many more around the world. She built a global network of nuns and lay volunteers, who today operate hospitals, health clinics, homeless shelters till to this days. She was such an enormous inspiration to many. Meaningful poems by Mother Teresa tells us a thousand words , so true indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Great Saint.

    Meaningful poem composed by the 8th century Buddhist Sage Shantideva. Shantideva’s masterpiece shows the way to transcend the limitations of selfishness and realize the boundless compassion of the Bodhisattva. The goal of a Bodhisattva is nothing less than benefiting others and helping others to achieve enlightenment . When people achieve enlightenment, they become free from samsara , rebirth and suffering. Reading this poem again tells us a thousand words, inspiration poem to ponder.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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

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

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
