    After reading this article, I understood that, what we have in mind is not true. We will be able to do Dharma work if we really want to do it. It does not matter where we are. The people who work away quietly and unassumingly are the ones who really create real benefits for themselves and others.
    Dharma work is said to be a blessing, a privilege and an honour. Dharma work is all about giving, rooting out our selfish mind that brought us all our problems in the first place.Thank you very much for the amazing article.

    Our Lama Tsem Rinpoche was someone who will shows kindness and empathy to others, nor matter who they are from the homeless to those foreign workers and someone Rinpoche did not know. Rinpoche has showed us the way to practice acts of kindness, to help someone with their to-do list, to be compassionate and so forth. To show empathy and kindness will change the lives of those who is stricken by misfortune. Rinpoche had always help those at Kechara Forest retreat as Rinpoche understand them well and their needs when they living in a foreign land away from home . Glad for those who are able to follow Rinpoche to buy groceries, eating out, show and so forth.
    No matter who we are, no matter how successful, no matter what our situation, compassion is something we all need to receive and give. Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike, each has their suffering.
    It’s a reminder to show empathy and kindness and to create a world with more love, more understanding, and more compassion.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing.

    Sometimes when we are angry we tend to remember it for a period of time. This is not healthy and even bring negative impact to us. We are angry because we cannot forgive and let go of what has happened. Just imagine the the energy and time wasted when we are angry. Therefore, we should learn to accept, forgive and move on. Otherwise holding on to grudges will only bring unhappiness to our life.

    Whether they are animals or insects, they are still living beings. As they are not in the form that are able to learn dharma, we should make ways for them to be connected to dharma to help them in their future rebirth. Rinpoche has showed us many ways to care for them, as easy as feeding them and blowing mantra to them. Whatever the method, we just need to put effort and continue with the practise.

    I always admire the creativeness of artists as they are able to bring out their message and express their feelings in a piece of art. Lynda Bell is a great artist as all her art piece brings awareness to our environment, animals, kindness and compassion. Something that we need to keep reminding ourselves that we are all part of the world and therefore we should not abuse and love one another.

    It is not just about learning the meaning of being kind and compassion but to apply it to our daily life and towards everyone. Rinpoche gave us the clear example to practise kindness and compassion. These values should not have any differentiation on anyone due to their background, race, language and etc. Everyone should be treated the same. Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this article.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.
