About: Cindy Hew

Cindy Hew

Profile

Cindy finds Tibetan Buddhism compelling but the Tibetan language mind boggling given that she is somewhat linguistically challenged. Her belief that there has to be more to the purpose of life than to perpetuate DNA has culminated to her encountering H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings around 2014. Cindy has since decided to reorganise her priorities in life to include Dharma and is constantly reminding herself of that goal as she navigates her way in samsara.

Biography: The 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub

It would not be far-fetched to say that most influential Gelug lamas of today would consider H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche as their direct teacher, or as their lineage teacher through his heart son H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. However, in present times, few are aware of Pabongka Rinpoche’s teacher, His Holiness the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra...

The Intriguing Green Children of Woolpit

Mar 10, 2018
The Intriguing Green Children of Woolpit

(by Tsem Rinpoche and Cindy Hew) In current times, the phrase “little green men” brings to mind alien beings from outer space, reminiscent of the hype surrounding flying saucers during the turn of the 20th Century. The earliest linking of this phrase with extra-terrestrials can be traced to an article about a little green-skinned...

Creepy Tales of the Lizard Man

Sep 20, 2017
Creepy Tales of the Lizard Man

The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported...

When Helmut Simon and his wife, Erika, stumbled upon an odd sight during their hike of the Ötztal Alps on the Austrian-Italian border in September 1991, they chalked it up to being the remains of a lost mountaineer.

Tales of the Mystical Firebird

Since ancient times, there has been much fascination with bird-like creatures because of their ability to fly and their freedom to go where mere mortals cannot, at least until the advent of modern technology. Their mystery and seasonal disappearances also add to their allure. It is no wonder then that the Firebird continues to...

    Clear and details explanation all about the significance of doing. To invoke the blessing of a Buddha we do prayers or puja to those who needed help. It is a kind of compassion expression helping people facing problems in life, clear obstacles, suffering, illness and so forth. Reading these post ,gives us a deeper meaning to pujas . Doing with a right motivation will be more effective. Puja is something very powerful and beneficial in long run. We are very fortunate to learn, practice doing puja from Rinpoche teachings.
    Thanks you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Amazing discovery of this sacred White Tara statue by Supriyono at a village in East Java Province Indoniasia. After having dreamt of a bluish-red dragon diving into an old well, he decided to look for it. He located the old well and found a beautiful White Tara statue,coins, and golden stones from the Majapahit Empire . Soon it ended with the antique collector Johan Yan his fellow Indonesians. Johan Yan photographed the White Tara statue from various angles, viewed the photos saw that the statue’s eyes, which were originally closed, had opened and were glancing to the side. Wow amazing. Arrangements were made to bless the White Tara statue by two Buddhist masters Bhutanese oracle Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. Miracles appeared from the midst of the blessing event. After the blessing ended, H.E. Druk Chokyong Tsimar Rinpoche, suddenly prostrated to the image of Tara. A secret mantra was behind the back only seen certain High Lama, kept close for two years, and to be revealed by tertons. These hidden teachings are to be revealed for the benefit of sentient beings when time is right. The 800-year-old statue made from copper and gold and is greenish in colour, decorated with golden ornaments is now well-preserved in the Mahanandi Museum.
    JohanYan hopes that the miraculous phenomena of the White Tara statue will encourage his fellow Indonesians to preserve items of cultural heritage. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this post

    The Richat Structure in Mauritania has also been proposed as the site of Atlantis. This structure is considered to be a deeply eroded domal structure. The Richat Structure of Mauritania has captured the attention of astronauts for further research. The Richat Structure resembles an impact crater, formed when a volcanic dome hardened and gradually eroded, exposing the onion-like layers of rock. That’s amazing how it was formed. Researchers do believe that the Richat structure was caused by process of geological uplift followed by erosion from wind and water. More logical indeed . Looking at those pictures tells all, it has concentric bands of resistant quartzite rocks which form the ridges. Erosion region began to settle down and collapse in on itself, creating the roughly circular eye feature. Through the eyes of astronauts on-board when seen from far is eye-popping…….a fascinating circular structure. Interesting read of how theories regarding the possible location of Atlantis .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this amazing sharing

    Malas have been used in so many different spiritual traditions for so long because these beads have great spiritual meaning, which makes them an important piece of mindful meditation. Malas has many powerful benefits and helps to create a divine connection between heart and mind. At the same time, it helps the mind stay focused and present in the moment.

    It’s good to note that you don’t have to be religious to wear or use a mala. It is important though to understand its use and respect its significance. We need to have faith and just keep on holding the vows and have strong affinity to practice dharma, no matter what.

    Thank you for this valuable information sharing, I am very fond of the mala, and I would love to keep using it.

    Mother nature has always done good to us. They have provided shelter for the living things and non living, any kind of disturbance to nature will shake its equilibrium.

    It is pivotal, to take good care of those who lives at trees as they too have feelings. One need to respect the feelings whomever that is living in trees, since this ensures everyone to live happily without any disturbance.

    Very clear precious teachings for us to practice this powerful Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Been explained in a clearly and creative way so everyone of us could understand and put into practice. The correct way to visualize plays an important part in our prayers. We are truly fortunate to have this powerful practice so as to transform our mind and lives meaningfully. It is very beneficial for us to do Guru Yoga prayer in daily Sadhana with the correct visualization. It can help us to calm our mind, good memory, less stressful and so forth. We gain clarity, we gain sharpness of the mind.

    Well said in Dharma the-battle-is-a-good-sign by Rinpoche. A profound teachings in this post. We have to accept , be true to ourselves , never blame others for our failure. In life whatever it is there is no short cut we have to learn from the hard way. We learn through mistakes to gain knowledge what is right or wrong. Hence our teacher taught us in away so as we could learn something new. Learning, practicing Dharma and putting into action is the best choice. Instead of running away, we should take more responsibilities, do more Dharma, engage in more Dharma, nor matter what happened. At the end of the day, we gain knowledge, merits, nothing to lose where we could benefits others. Our wisdom, clear mind is arising, our mind becoming better and seeing things better in long run. We are fortunate having Rinpoche giving us precious teachings on line. It has since benefitted many people around the world.
    Meaningful quotes by Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo , well explained by Rinpoche for us all to have a good thought.
    Only we ourselves can change our mindset and situation , not to blame others to make the change.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    Mr.Shenpenn Khymsar a diehard activist known for speaking the truth without the shroud of diplomacy . Shenpenn Khymsar has travelled around the globe in search of his fellow Tibetan refugees and has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is a self taught musician, a filmmaker and a creative, modern Tibetan man who spoke so eloquently and openly. His words embodying the pride, courage and integrity as much as the wisdom and compassion . All about the on-going troubles his fellow Tibetan refugees were facing. He even has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is speaking up being a Tibetan and for the Tibetan cause hoping that more Tibetans understand more things and see into more things. That’s wonderful and a good choice he has made. As a responsible Tibetan citizen he just has to tell the truth. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    In Mahayana Buddhism, Manjusri is the bodhisattva of wisdom and is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana art and literature. Manjushri the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand. In Tibetan tradition, this mantra is believed to enhance wisdom and improve one’s skills in debating, memory, writing, and other literary abilities. Manjushri practice can be used to help us with our memory—it can be used to help us gain and remember information. It can also be used to helps us develop our wisdom. All the buddhas have the same realization. It’s not that Manjushri has more wisdom than all the other Buddhas and less compassion ,they all have the same realizations. It’s just that Manjushri’s specialty is wisdom, and he’s the manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

#kecharafoodbank: In collaboration with Good Shepherd Services (GSS) based in Ipoh, we travelled to Buntong with food rations for 33 families. Some of the food items given include rice, noodles, cooking oil and biscuits; in total, we gave 726kg of food to these beneficiaries from the underprivileged class. We are glad to have been able to contribute, especially to families with children and in poor living conditions. We wish to thank GSS for alerting us about those in need, and we look forward to extending more support in the future together with this not-for-profit organization doing good work. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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
