I shouldn’t be alive… | 一场几乎夺走我性命的可怕车祸……

(By Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

Joy is a long-time student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, she is a talented girl in arts, and has painted many fabulous Buddha statues for Rinpoche in Tsem Ladrang. Sometime last year, Rinpoche warned Joy that she would have a serious car accident, and wanted her to stay around so that she would be protected. True enough, Joy had a car accident a few days ago, her car lost control and spun twice before slamming hard on the ditch, landing on the driver side where the window was smashed…but somehow Joy escaped with just some bruises on her arm!!! Read on…

A tragic accident that could have taken my life…

This was just 4 days ago as I was driving up to KFR… my car lost control on the highway, turned 360 degree twice and I slammed in to a huge ditch. So what was going through my mind as I spun around twice… I knew I was going to be hit and everything was going way too fast, so I just closed my eyes and thought of Tsem Rinpoche, my Guru (and Protector as one).

I opened my eyes and realised that my window was completely smashed… and my head was cushioned by my laptop bag!! This is no ordinary laptop bag as Rinpoche just 2 nights ago gifted me with a new laptop (no the laptop was not in the bag). So how on earth did this bag so coincidentally flew, so accurately from the back of my car seat to the front to protect my head from being smashed? I basically climbed out with a few minor scratches on my right arm. That was it!

What would have happened if I had no Dharma… No Rinpoche? No new laptop with bags? How did Rinpoche know??? How did Rinpoche prepared me? I do not know, but I do know for sure… this is the 3rd time my Lama has saved my life from a tragic car accident. They say just from one’s faith in the Guru, one will be protected and gain tremendous blessings and attainments as He is kinder even more then the Buddhas of the past. He is the living Buddha for you… and now I can swear this is TRUE based not just on my “faith” but for the many times I’ve cheated death recently.

With folded hands and humbly grateful to Rinpoche… for if not I will not live to tell this tale today. May I never be separated from my Lama in this life and in all future lives and to always continuously serve my Lama and the Dharma whole heartedly for everything else is but impermanent like a dream, a mirage, samsara swallows you whole…

Joy

甘宝爱是尊贵的詹仁波切的资深弟子,她在美术方面特有才华,也替仁波切在詹拉章彩绘了多尊精致庄严的佛像。在去年的某一天,仁波切告诫宝爱她会经历一场危险 的交通意外,并指示她跟随在侧以给予她加持庇佑。果然不出所料,几天前宝爱出了交通意外。在撞向沟渠之前,她开的车子失控并旋转了两圈。整辆车子往司机座 的方向翻,车镜也跟着碎了。然而,宝爱成功逃脱,身体也无大碍,只是擦伤了手肘。请继续阅读:

Joy是尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的弟子。前几天她开车在通往文冬的高速公路上飞驰时,车子突然失控,在空中翻了两圈,然后重重的摔在沟渠里,而且是摔在了司机那一边,车窗玻璃也碎了,但奇迹的是,除了手上的一点小割伤外,Joy居然安然无恙!

在去年里,仁波切已经警告过Joy,说她会遇到车祸劫难,要她一定得留在仁波切身边以受到仁波切和护法的保佑。在车祸发生的前几天,仁波切送给了Joy一台崭新笔记本,附带笔记本包。当车祸发生时,车在空中翻转的一刹那,放在车后座的笔记本包(里头没有笔记本)竟然准确的“飞”到了Joy的头右边,在撞击 的那一刻垫住了她的头,救了她一命 !!!如果没有仁波切和护法的保佑,Joy恐怕已经凶多吉少了!

一场几乎夺走我性命的可怕车祸

四天前在我开车到克切拉禅修林的路上,我的车子在高速大道上失控,并360度地转了两个圈,接着我便撞向大沟渠。当车子失控旋转的时候,我心想自己一定会给撞上,一切都发生在几秒内。于是我闭上双眼,想着我的上师詹仁波切及护法神是一体的。

当 我睁开双眼时,我发现我的车镜全碎了,而我的手提电脑包竟然垫住了我的头部!这不是个一般的手提电脑包,因为仁波切刚在两天前送了我一台全新的手提电脑 (发生车祸时手提电脑包内是空的)。那么这个手提电脑包究竟是如何那么刚好地“飞”起来,并准确地从车子后座移向前座,保护我的头部免受撞击。我自己从车 子内爬出来,右手肘也只有一些小擦伤,就只是这样!

如 果我没遇见佛法,当时会发生什么事呢?没有仁波切,没有新的手提电脑及手提电脑包,我又会如何呢?仁波切是怎么知道的?仁波切如何为我做准备?我不知道, 我当然不晓得。这已经是仁波切将我从可怕的交通意外中解救出来第三次了。人们都说只要对上师怀有信念,我们都会受到庇佑及获得无量的加持及修行成就,因为 上师比过去佛还要仁慈。上师是你活生生的菩萨。我可以发誓这一切都是真实的,这一切并不只是建立在我的“信念“之上,而是建立于多次的死里逃生。

我双掌合十并虔敬地向仁波切致谢。若不是仁波切,我就无法存活下来,告诉大家这个奇迹。愿我生生世世都能亲近我的上师,一直侍候他并全心全意地为佛法奉献。其他一切事物就好比梦境及海市蜃楼般无常……娑婆世界能完全吞噬你。

甘宝爱

    Thank you, Joy for sharing this incident with us, and by doing so, show us that the tremendous power of faith and trust in the Guru. Just by looking at the photos of the wrecked car sent a chill down my spine. Many people suffer much more from an accident like this than just scratches here and there. I am glad that Joy came out with minor scratches and that she was ok. May she always be the light to others to increase the faith in our Guru.

  2. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 31, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow and Joy for the sharing.

    So touched by Joy’s Pure Guru Samaya and Guru Devotion. May we have the merits as Joy has.

    i am so happy aunty joy is ok. thank you Rinpoche for giving her advise and the dharma which saved her life. wow, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  7. So Kin Hoe on Mar 18, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for protecting Joy and protecting everyone of us. We are very lucky to have our Rinpoche around us and we must spread the Dharma to let more people to follow our Guru’s teaching and purify the bad karma.

  8. Sharon on Mar 8, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Hi, Joy! Thanks for sharing your amazing story. Am a great believer of everything happens for a reason. Just like how you got laptop as a gift from Rinpoche. It was meant more than just for work.:) Glad that you are alive to share your story here.

  9. Pastor Chia on Mar 7, 2013 at 1:30 am

    I can totally believe regard what hapening Joy has experience the car accident. It happen to me before few years ago. Rinpoche has warned me to be careful about car accidentmany time. I experienced 5 time car accident during that particular year. Without protection from Rinpoche and protector blessing. I won’t be here today. It ready important we must listen Rinpoche advice to do something to purify our negative karma before it manifest.

  10. Cliff on Mar 5, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I’m so glad Joy is safe. Rinpoche has always been there for us and protected us. It is wonderful to know that in the midst of joy’s accident she was thinking of Rinpoche and the protector as one before the car landed on the driver’s side, most people would have selfishly thought of themselves, their lives coming to an end and that they would depart from their worldly possessions, but Rinpoche has given us the dharma and have prepared us not just physically but mentally as well. If not for Rinpoche we would be living very different lives. Thank you for sharing your experience and I’m glad you’re safe.

  11. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    It is amazing for me to learn that Joy can escape car accident of this magnitude with only few scratches on her hand. I am glad that Joy is fine.

    Rinpoche has warned Joy about this upcoming accident last year and again gave her a laptop bag just 2 days before the accident. Rinpoche knows that something is coming, yet maybe He needs to let it happens anyway because this is our karma.

    Thank you Joy for sharing this true account of yourself so that we can all learn the importance of heading guru’s advise.

  12. HelenaC on Mar 4, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    OMB OMB!!!!! It is really a miracle!!! It is so amazing that the accident caused no harm to Joy!!! And the most amazing is Rinpoche knows 🙂 We must do more Dharma work to accumulate more merits to ourselves so that we will always be protected by our Guru and protector. Thank Rinpoche and Protector for saving Joy’s life!!

  13. Adrian Cho on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Thank you JOy for sharing this interesting story, that we can knows it Rinpoche is always be there to protect us all the times.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  14. sweekeong on Mar 4, 2013 at 4:24 am

    Dear Joy, you could really get seriously hurt the way your car hit the drain. Thank you for sharing what you have experience, your thoughts, and your feelings during the accident. Never leave your live to chances but have faith in our guru to help us in our time of need. You have follow the instructions given well and thus are protected from serious injury.

  15. June Tang(KHJB) on Mar 3, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I am glad that Joy is safe from the car accident.Joy is really really lucky to have blessing of Rinpoche and Protector to helped her through this critical moments !!By having good devotion with our GURU,miracle can be happen !!Joy is a good example to show us how a Guru’s blessings work if we have fully faith in our Guru !!

    It’s very lucky that Joy is totally fine and still standing perfectly next to us today, a lot of people who went thru this kind of car accident might not that lucky like Joy.

    This road is not a small road that not much car will pass by, Joy’s accident point it’s located in the middle of a highway that connected KL to Kuantan (2 major city of Selangor and Pahang), thousand of car will passed by this road with high speed. If there’s a car coming from the back when Joy’s car is spinning, the result will be worst.

    Accident could be a type of purification or maybe a sign of our bad karma catching up. No one can stop our bad karma catching up, not even Buddha himself, so how Rinpoche help in this situation?

    When one is serving the dharma, taking refuge under a guru and the three jewels, we are in the process of purified our bad karma and generate more merits to open up more good karma. Based on the merits that collected from Joy’s work this few years, she is safe now. Based on the merits Joy collected, she is able to have a guru who give her advise before bad thing happened on her, based on the merits she collected, she just have minor hurt in this serious accident. Also because of her merits, Joy able to purified her bad karma which could took away her life.

    Rinpoche have gave us a lot of advise we should contribute to dharma in whatever way we can, it’s not bacause Rinpoche will get anything from us but we will be able to help ourselves when it’s needed.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the blessing and we could have joy still with us today.

    Thanks
    Bryan

  18. grace (KHJB) on Mar 1, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Look at the car situation, people will think that the driver may have vital injury,it is really incredible that Joy only have few minor scratches. with good samaya with Rinpoche, Joy have create a good karma and merits to able receive Rinpoche’s protection..i agree with Sharon comment “we must constantly work on purifying our negative karma, accumulating merits and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru. “

  19. Lisa Leong on Mar 1, 2013 at 11:29 am

    This story or miracle reminded myself again to keep good samaya with my Guru…constantly do our practice or dharma work sincerely to accumalate good merits and at the same time purify our bad karma.

  20. uncle eddie on Feb 28, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    As stressed, without pure Dharma practice and realisations, we have no real spiritual protection from danger, harm and sufferings. Therefore, we definetly need to develop an unchangeable wish to practice Dharma purely. By practising Dharma enthusiastically, it makes our Dharma strong, powerful, constant and pure, which will also pleases our Guru too, and thus strenghten and increase our guru devotion! All such spiritual practices could have led Joy out of serious harms and injuries in that terrible and weird accident of hers with just a few minor scratches. Congrats to you Joy, please keep up the good practice! Thank you Rinpoche for all the usual great care and compassion you have for your students, friends and all living beings, especially animals too!

  21. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for always being around us to love, care and protect us! Rinpoche always does so much for us, regardless of whether we know it or not. I personally received so many gifts from Rinpoche. Rinpoche always shows care towards anyone, even those who have not shown any form of gratitude. Rinpoche’s compassion is indeed superhuman in nature.

    Joy is a great example of Rinpoche’s care and how a samaya held with constant care and awareness can save one’s life. The accident was going to happen because of previous negative karmas but it lessened the suffering caused thanks to Rinpoche and Setrap.

  22. AdelineTan on Feb 27, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    What Joy said is very true.What would have happened if she had no dharma and no Rinpoche? A tragic accident liked that would have taken her life. Because Joy has painted a lot of Rinopoche’s buddhas statues and followed the instructions of Rinpoche,she has collected a lot of merits and managed to escape serious injuries and stay alive, so Joy wishes never to be separated from her Lama in this life and her all her future lives, a wise decision she has made.

  23. Leann Lim on Feb 26, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    看到这车祸毁坏的程度,真是不敢相信,JOY只是手臂擦伤而已~~只能说这是奇迹,在师父和护法保护下的奇迹!! 对上师和护法坚定的信念,不只让我们得到生命的保护,更让我们可以继续修行佛法,让生命更有意义…常听说修佛法,就是修让我们面对死亡的那一刻; 因为生命无常,随时在下一秒,我们就这样离开人世不是没可能的事…在没有佛法的‘支持’和理解下,如果那一刻突然来临时,真的无法想像自己该怎么办!!但持续的修持,对上师和护法坚定的信念,即时在危机的时刻,只是单单臆念上师的样貌,就可助我们脱险!!

  24. Davin on Feb 26, 2013 at 1:07 am

    Glad that Joy is safe. It’s a miracle that she escaped with only a few bruises. Her strong guru devotion, practise the Dharma and faith in the Dharma protector have save her live. This is why we must constantly doing Dharma work, accumulating merits, purifying our negative karma and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru.

  25. Angelshooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    Thanks to Seng Piow for the posting.

    First thing, when I saw in the FB, I thought of Joy, and Is she safe? I am glad that she is fine and with a few cuts and little bruises.

    Yes, without Rinpoche and Protector’s blessing and protection, Joy might have injured badly or died. Joy is very fortunate to meet and receive Rinpoche’s blessing. Take care Joy!

  26. Darren Kechara on Feb 25, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche & protecter! Any Rinpoche’s gift, be it presents or words of advice is very important. With strong faith in Dharma definitely everyone will get blessed and protected.

  27. Soon Huat on Feb 25, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    Yes, we should trust our Guru and Protector. Their thought is beyond our understanding. We just believe and do what has been asked by Rinpoche and follow it with heart. We will realize the purpose one day and appreciate the guidance from Rinpoche.

  28. pavara on Feb 25, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    Wow!!!!!
    It is so miraculous that Rinpoche gave Joy the computer bag to save her from the car accident.

    Rinpoche must have known that Joy was going to have a car accident so Rinpoche gave Joy the computer bag to save her life. Another thing is that how did the computer bag fly from the back seat to the steering wheel? That is another sign to show that the protector is there.

    After the incident when Joy was taken to the Bentong hospital everything happened so smoothly and there was no troubles or obstacle in Bentong. She is also lucky because there was no serious injuries or broken bones.

    This clearly shows that if we have faith in our protector and our Guru, things can go on smoothly and well. If Joy had no guru or protector she would have already died from the accident.

    This incidence tells us that our Guru always cares for us to make sure everything is alright. Thus we should have strong faith in our Guru and protector.

  29. Carmen K. on Feb 25, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you for having this post up.

    I personally ‘experienced’ this case. I do vividly remember Rinpoche warning Joy of a serious car accident that she would be facing sometime last year, and that she had to do Dharma work and watch her body, speech and mind to lessen the impact of this obstacle.

    When I heard that Joy got into a car accident recently, I was startled. Seeing the photo shows how serious the car accident was..In any case, most would’ve walked away from the accident as bad as hers with much more than cuts and bruises on the arm. What was ironic was that Rinpoche gave Joy a laptop bag 2-3 days before her accident. Out of the blue! Rinpoche could’ve given Joy anything, like a soft toy, or statue, or mala, or cards, or artwork, but it was a laptop bag that was chosen…and it was this exact laptop bag that mysteriously cushioned her during her serious accident… How… miraculous.

    I’m glad Joy lived to tell this tale, and may it too inspire others to have faith and trust in one’s guru. This is a true case of following the advice of your guru and reaping the benefits from it. The guru will do all he can to protect, bless, lessen and save you from all obstacles that you have created for yourself. May Joy also continuously learn, practise and listen to Rinpoche, so that she will be able to practise, learn and spread the Dharma for a long time to come.

  30. Wah Ying on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    天,看到车子毁坏的状况,一定以为司机会凶多吉少……结果,她被护法和上师救了!

    信念很重要,对上师和护法坚定的信任,让宝爱脱险。忆念上师一刻胜过持诵千万遍的佛咒……顶礼上师詹仁波切……

    人生有奇迹,看看这个诡异的红脸异域和当事人在危急时刻忆念上师,然后脱险的故事:

    How extremely fortunate to have survived from a fatal accident. GOSH!! Without protection of your guru you probably would be severely injured or even died. Never lose your guru devotion to your perfect guru. May all students have the perfect guru devotion befitting their teachers. x

  32. edward ooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:28 am

    Joyce was so lucky that she survived the car crash. She is so fortunate to meet Rinpoche, if she never met Rinpoche she might not be alive today. Amazingly! her empty bag for her laptop is a gift from Rinpoche became like magic, it flew to her head to protect her and after the car crash, she only have a few bruises on her hand. But most of all, I hope that is fine

  33. JP on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:14 am

    Joy,

    I was so relieved that you survived this accident. When I went on site to see your car, I thought you’d be seriously injured. I truly believe that it was Rinpoche’s blessings that saved your life and lessened the injury.

    I’m glad that you’re alive to relate this story to others. May this be an inspiration to others.

    Love,
    JP

  34. Louise Lee on Feb 24, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    生命来临, 每个人都回欢喜的等待与迎接。

    但是。。。。。。万一。。。。。。一天我们要离开。。。。。。你准备好了吗?

    真的会有时间准备吗? 仁波切说的对! 不要再等了, 现在就为佛法下一番苦功!虽然会是苦的, 但是看看将来,这是一份功德! 我们将会为将来, 来到克切拉的每一位带来欢喜与幸福!

  35. Low ksjb on Feb 24, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    We are glad that you are safe from that accident.Due to your sincere guru devotion,you manage to escape the accident with minimal injury.We could not escape from our past negative karma,but at least when it ripen,our dear Rinpoche could minimize the affect when we truly place our trust in him.Thank you Rinpoche for the love and caring for your students and for those in need.

  36. Chee ks on Feb 24, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Just to share my own experience with U all,
    my family n I join kechara in 2009 march. We are very fortunate to met Rinpoche in the same month where Rinpoche give us a teaching about oracle and setrap protector practice.
    Through this teaching, I had faith with Setrap(that time I still don’t know to visualize guru n protector in one)
    After few months( even I n my wife just do some helping in wesak fair, NOT CLOSE TO RINPOCHE TO DO FULL TIME DHARMA WORK), my mother safe from a gas explosion(nearly explore).
    我很惊讶煤气头已经燒熔了,竟然没爆炸。我萬分深信这是上師,護法的護佑。

    Chee ks

  37. yenpin on Feb 24, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    仁波切一直在我们身边,保护,关心和爱护我们
    能想象一下,如果在这场车祸中,没有上师的保护和护法加持。会如此幸运吗?
    要好好感谢上师,护法的加持,逃过一劫。

  38. Girlie OOI on Feb 24, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    When I heard that Joy had an accident and then saw the picture of her car in the ditch, the first thought that came to my mind was .. Is she ok? That looks bad!

    Joy had landed in a ditch before and she also escaped unhurt.

    Thank Buddha Joy escaped unscathed. A few scratches is nothing.

  39. Lucas Roth on Feb 24, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Rinpoche is a living Buddha and i love him, i am sure all of kechara loves him too. He is very good for us but we must be good to him, he is truly a blessing and overall a good man. we have to appreciate him while he is here. Please live long Rinpoche, so you can teach us the dharma and spread it so it will last to the end of samsara.

  40. auchan on Feb 24, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    anumodana..i really touched and happy for you to be alive and Dharma protect you..sadhu3

  41. Andrew Boon on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    This is quite an incredible account… it is almost surreal seeing Joy after the accident after getting the horrific updates via whatsapp of the pictures of her car in the ditch. It somehow did not “match” but I was happy she escaped with just very minor scratches.

    What we can certainly learn from Joy is the devotion she has for Rinpoche which undoubtedly keeps her safe.

    We have to understand Rinpoche does not work on a whim or fancy, Rinpoche works on our karma and merits with him… Hence as students our samaya has to be clean and that we follow Rinpoche’s intructions to a tee for us to be “protected”.

    One may ask, why is it that some students seemingly receive more? It is most certainly their merits and connection with Rinpoche from this and a previous life. However this is like money in a bank account, we cannot just bank on this alone… the merits need to be replenished or we may end up quite the opposite and our karma would inevitable pull us away from Rinpoche. Like I mentioned earlier, it certainly is not what Rinpoche would like but if we do not have the karma for Rinpoche to help us, we are left to our negative karma ripening.

    How we replenish this merit account is to do Dharma work well and follow Rinpoche’s advice however mundane our deluded minds seems to think it is. There is nothing Rinpoche does without a reason!

  42. Jessica Yap on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    OH MY!!! Thank Buddha you’re okay Joy! The accident looks scary. Luckily you were not tossed outta the car. And you’re also lucky to have Rinpoche and Protector to help you through this accident. You’re blessed in a way! Can you imagine if you were to get involved in an accident without the Guru and the Protector? I shudder at the thought of it! Thank Buddha you’re okay now! A few scratches in return for a life is okay. hehe
    Hope you’re keeping well, JoyJoy!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  43. Albert Ratchaga on Feb 24, 2013 at 3:23 am

    Is this coincident? or is this the power of blessing? This is definitely a debatable topic as we never saw how an enlightened being blessed us, but what if this ‘coincident’ happen to a person few times and also happened to other people many times, is this coincident still or there is something behind that we need to realize?

    The assistant who are around Tsem Rinpoche saw this miracle happened many times, this is due to Rinpoche’s extreme care and kindness. Rinpoche cared for everyone no matter who you are.

    Joy is definitely very fortunate, because from Rinpoche and protector’s blessing, Joy got her life saved and just only a minor accident. I’m glad that Joy made it, it is a chance for us to continue into Dharma practice.

  44. Felix Kong on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:22 am

    How fortunate that Joy have protection from Rinpoche and protector , so she can escape from any injured or death in this accident.I’m believe too that Joy had been done a lot of good things and collect good karma , that why can easily passed this accident.

  45. Erickksiow on Feb 24, 2013 at 1:25 am

    Glad to know that Joy is fine, and Thank You Rinpoche for always caring everyone of us.

    Best Regards: Eric kksiow

  46. Lim Han Nee on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Her car lost control and she slammed into a ditch. She closed her eyes and placed all her faith and her prayers in Rinpoche and the Protector.

    Next minute when she opened her eyes, she found that the window next to her had been completely smashed. Yet she was being cushioned by a laptop bag! No ordinary bag! It was the bag that held the laptop which Rinpoche had gifted her just two nights ago!

    Joy’s experience of what could have been a fatal accident for her, proves yet again how important it is that one has Guru Devotion and clean samaya with one’s guru. Nothing is more important than Dharma practice and doing Dharma work.

    I saw Joy yesterday in KFR and I was amazed that she had only minor scratches on her right hand. As if the accident didnt happen. Since I knew her, this is the second time I hear of her being in an accident. The first time was somewhere near Damansara. How truly blessed and protected you are Joy! You are right! We should always cherish, trust and surrender to our Guru as He knows best unlike us. As always, Rinpoche only want the best for us so that we can surrender and go all the way for Dharma and not take things lightly. Yours is one of the perfect example. You went all the way and received much blessings. And yes again, may we never be separated from the perfect Guru in all lives and always receive His unconditional love shown in many many ways! Am glad you are okay Joy!

  48. Ong Moh Mei on Feb 23, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    I rejoice that Joy is still with us today. Our Guru’s compassion and care knows no bound. He is always looking after us and protecting us whether we know it or not. Joy has great merit to be able to think of Rinpoche (and Protector) when the accident was happening.

  49. jennifer on Feb 23, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    There are so many many miracles that Rinpoche has performed over the years and each and every miracle is truly amazing !
    Reading the post on Joy’s accident and how she came out unscathed is totally miraculous !!!
    I do not believe in coincidences , but i believe very strongly in Faith and Trust, which is what Joy has . Joy’s deep faith and trust in Rinpoche has saved her.
    When we have the karma and merits to practise the Dharma and we have full faith and trust in our Guru and our Protectors, we will be saved at ALL levels ! In this lifetime and in our future lives.
    I am so overwhelmed with relief that Joy is fine.
    Thank you so much Rinpoche for always looking out for us, loving us and protecting us . Thank you Rinpoche for saving Joy.

    是的,正如大家说的一样,这已经不是第一次仁波切救了 Joy 的一生,早前的她活在日日笙歌的日子,长久下来也会变成活死人,这并不代表任何病痛,而是生活已无目标了。

    一旦生命失去了目标,失去了目的,我们已经开始死亡了,死亡开始于我们停止进步,停止往前走。仁波切的出现帮助我们前进,给与了我们生命的意义。

    不了解的人会觉得听从上师的话是中迷信,可是我们不也听从大学的讲师、家人、妻子、老板的话?难不成我们个个都是迷信之人吗?如果对我们生命有帮助的何不去试试?做了未必成功,但不做铁定是失败。

  51. mitra on Feb 23, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Rinpoche for always be around us to protect, care and love us!Joy,

    We’re so glad you’re okay!!!

  52. Paris on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    I am sitting in front of Joy now and we have even been talking about her wedding a few years ago… it’s almost spooky that I can be sitting in front of her right now and she’s in perfectly good health, with only a slight scar on her arm. Any other accident like that – on a dangerously wet and winding road and with such a light car – would have been an instant death knell for most people. The miracle of her laptop bag cushioning her head seems far too coincidental to be just a coincidence; sometimes, you don’t believe in miracles until you see one right before your eyes.

    I had written privately to Rinpoche about this accident and how miraculous it is that Joy got away with only a few scratches. Rinpoche replied, “For many, being near the lama will open up other good karmas inclusive of protection. It is important to make dharma our priority then the blessings will open up seeds and plant further seeds.”

    I like what Sharon has said – that it doesn’t mean that we become invincible, but we have this opportunity to open up the good karmic imprints for us to remain always on the path and have all the necessary conditions to continue (health, safety, protection, material resources etc). The Lama opens up his whole life – home, teachings, support – for no one but us. For what he gives out to his students and for the incredible lifetime of protection, he gets back very, very little from us.

  53. patsy on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Looking at the picture of the overturned car, it’s a miracle that Joy escaped with only a few bruises. Joy has been one of Rinpoche’s long time student and her strong guru devotion and trust in the dharma protector has helped her collected the merits to be saved many times by Rinpoche.

    Joy is a good example to show us how a Guru’s blessings work if we have strong guru devotion.

    Why Guru Devotion is Important? – http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html

  54. Joy on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    All I can say is please please always listen to Rinpoche’s advice and instructions and follow it to a “T” and never take anything lightly or for granted and make excuses to to fulfill them. Rinpoche has reasons for asking us to do something. It is easier for Rinpoche to help and bless us if we listen without any form of resistance and just completely trust and surrender… surrender means let go of your own projected concepts… in other words your own reasons and excuses. Just follow 100%.

    If you have met and Guru that can teach you the Dharma as directly as Rinpoche, treasure and cherish it with your life. Rinpoche does not need anything from us, but we need Rinpoche very much. Everything that Rinpoche has done for me, my family, Justin and His students and friends is always about how He can help or benefit them. Sometimes Rinpoche think for days to help his students and think of methods to make them wake up or encourage them to improve. EVerything Rinpoche has created and set up for us is ways to collect enormous amounts of merits and from there to understand Dharma. Those who are in Rinpoche’s mandala are so fortunate… it is likened to being a protected meritorious space. Rinpoche have told us many times if you think that you are entering Vajrayogini’s mandala everyday when you come in to work in my house, you will receive the blessing of Vajrayogini. If you think it is just an ordinary place then you will just receive worldly benefits and nothing more. So really it is your perspective, your understanding of Dharma and your merits to stay near or to leave the mandala… it is based on you. So do not take it for granted if you have this great opportunity… never trick and cheat yourself in to going to the lower realms… it is not worth it!

    • abby f on Feb 27, 2013 at 6:32 pm

      Thank you Joy for sharing your own experience about what surrender to Guru means with us. What it takes is just follow the instructions and do it. And because of the faith Joy has with Rinpoche, Joy is OK now and she is able to continue with her Dharma work to help many. Joy has the merits to be saved by Rinpoche and the Protector as she works closely with Rinpoche for many years. Joy uses her talent to help spread Dharma which is very meritorious. We all are glad that Joy is fine.

  55. Jean Ai on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Like Joy said, this is not the first time Rinpoche has saved her from a car accident. But this is also not the first time ever that Rinpoche has saved her – over a decade ago, when Rinpoche first met Joy and her late husband Justin, Rinpoche also saved them from the hedonistic partying lifestyle they were leading.

    I think what we need to realise is, Rinpoche doesn’t just save us physically in the way of preventing car accidents but also mentally. For all of us, our lives would be very different, and much worse off if we had not met Rinpoche. And understanding how Rinpoche has benefited us should motivate us to work even harder, to help Rinpoche grow in renown so that he can help others too…since at the present we ourselves cannot help others to the extent that Rinpoche can ease others sufferings, that would be the compassionate thing for us to do!

  56. hecelus tan on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    If we see our Guru as a Buddha,then we received the blessing of a Buddha.So I think this is the essence of Vajrayana Buddhism.Like Joy,she can be safe from this seriously accident is all because of pure Guru Devotion.We should never ever have any doubt on our spiritual teacher because this may blocked the blessing from our Guru.Joy really is a good example that showed us how Guru’s blessing works.

  57. sarahyap on Feb 23, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    It truly was a strange day when the accident happened.

    All of us was already up on KFR and we felt uncomfortable that Joy have not arrived in KFR already. So David gave her a call to see if she is ok. Later I found out that David called her just moments after her accident, that she could not reach her phone as it flew out of the car. It was only a few minutes later after she crawled out of the car that she got hold of her phone and returned David’s call, and told us she had an accident. Immediately Li Kim mobilized 3 people to go down to Genting Sempah to help Joy.

    When Joy returned to KFR after going to the hospital, (they did an X-ray just to make sure everything is ok) I asked Joy what happened. She told me that she was going down the slope and suddenly her car lost control. She knew she could not get her car in control at that moment, so she closed her eyes and think of her Guru and protector… The next thing she knew, she opened her eyes and found that the computer bag that Rinpoche gave her a few days ago protected her head. If you see the picture, the glass was shattered to pieces… how the computer bag ended up right next to Joy’s head, protecting her… now that’s amazing.

    This is not the first time Joy had a major accident, and coming out of the accident with just scratches here and there. There was another major accident when she drove down a large drain and her car stopped just inches away from the concrete wall…

    Joy is one of Rinpoche’s oldest students… she has been very close with Rinpoche for many years. If there was one person that she love and trust it is Rinpoche, without a doubt. Most of Rinpoche’s Buddha statues are painted by Joy and even the beads are done by her. To have such a tremendous merit to be close and serve one’s Guru, and at the same time to have such strong Guru devotion to one’s Guru… I believe it is from all her actions of following Rinpoche’s advice to her, which ultimately saved her life so that she can continue to do Dharma.

  58. philyong on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:43 am

    This accident not only shows that Joy is safe and there are miracles..it also shows that Joy has transformed. She did not let her attachments take over hence she is safe as she walked out of that car with just a few scratch marks. There are Protectors or Guardian Angels or however you want to call them. These Protectors are always watching over us. But like Rinpoche always says, if we do not have the karma, no matter how much our Protector or Guru tries to help us, it will not work. Not that, they do not have the capability but because we do not have the karma to receive help.

    Luckily for us, however we want our karma to be is entirely up to us. Basically, we choose our path. Good or bad karma, its all in our hands. I am glad Joy chose the good path that has ensured that she is safe always under the protection of Rinpoche and her Protector. Thank you Joy for also showing a good example to all of us.

    • henry ooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      Yes, Phil, Rinpoche has taught this over and over again.

      It really was a miracle after I saw only light cuts and bruises on Joy’s arms, hands and legs.

      Our life can be so fragile and can be snuffed out in an instant.

  59. Sharon Saw on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:07 am

    I must say that when i first saw the car in the ditch, i was quite shaken because it would have been a miracle for someone to walk away from it but Joy did! As you can see, she just had some bruises and scratches! I had fallen down the week before and i had more injuries than she did! This is truly the result of Joy’s refuge in Rinpoche which gave her the best protection anyone could have.

    On a personal note, there was once when Pastor Susan and I were driving to Singapore and i messaged Rinpoche to let him know that we were leaving KL as was our usual practice, and he said have a good trip and remember to check your tires. He had never told us to check our tires before so Susan and I looked at each other and thought let’s pull into the next petrol station. True enough, our car’s tire pressure was almost dangerously low. So it was lucky that we had the good karma to receive Rinpoche’s advice and that we paid attention to it!

    Of course it does not mean that if you are near Rinpoche and doing Dharma work that you become invincible. It just means that if you have the karma and merits to be safe, Rinpoche will do anything he can to ensure your safety. However, if we do not keep good samaya (relationship) with Rinpoche, then Rinpoche cannot help us. It is not that he does not want to help us but that our negative karma will stop him from helping. This is why we must constantly work on purifying our negative karma, accumulating merits and most importantly, to keep good samaya with our Guru.

  60. Jim Yeh on Feb 23, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Joy,

    We’re so glad you’re okay!!!

  61. David Lai on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:56 am

    This is one of many incredible stories of people who were directly and indirectly assisted by Rinpoche. There’s a whole graphic novel, which is just a handful of the amazing and dramatic ways in which Rinpoche assists people. The blessings of a lama comes particularly if we have merits created to help us.

    Joy had been with Rinpoche for little under a decade now and she had been serving Rinpoche with her art, her dedication, prayers and hard work. She had her shortcomings like everybody else and it is through such powerful experience that it has changed her and she’s slowly but surely able to transform her shortcomings to be of assistance towards others. I rejoice for her that she’s able to help others with her art and Dharma work.

  62. Martin on Feb 23, 2013 at 10:37 am

    Everything about the accident was surreal and it was like, if an accident had to happen to Joy, then by some divine intervention, it happened in the best possible way. It was as if everything was already in place waiting to mitigate the danger and inconvenience of such an accident. But then again, when you are as close to Rinpoche as Joy is, you know that Rinpoche is always looking out for you and often without you knowing about it. Many have been witnesses to these miracles although Rinpoche never personally speaks about them. In Vajrayana, we see the Guru as the Buddha and by that way, the blessings and protection of the Guru is maximised and over time, you begin to realize that it is more than just a visualization.

    Joy spends a lot of her time painting Rinpoche’s statues, adorning them with jewels and precious stones and there is so much merits to be gained through such Dharmic acts. It is a wonder why more people are not queueing to serve the Guru and the Dharma in similar ways and build up a tremendously good karma bank account.

  63. Lim (KH JB) on Feb 23, 2013 at 6:15 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for always be around us to protect, care and love us!

    Joy show us the good example that always hold Guru samaya strongly can always protect us.

    Nairatmya is the Buddha Mother of the Sakya sect and is the embodiment of prajna wisdom. As well as a meditational deity and the consort of Hevajra which has many different forms and combinations of forms for these two deities. She has phenomenal power which enables practitioners to break through the ignorance of afflictions and increase the practitioners’ Buddha wisdom and merits. She did appeared to the Mahasiddha Virupa urging him to continue with his tantric practice. Depicted with the dharma protector Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    Born as a prince …Siddhartha Gautama but then became known as Shakyamuni only after he became the Buddha . Buddha gave teachings or compassionately turning the wheel of Dharma at a variety of places for many years until his parinirvana. Through these teachings, Buddha showed the way that leads all beings to the experience of awakening and liberation from samsara. In this beautiful thanka Buddha is depicted with his many disciples and Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri.

    The Buddha was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in ancient India. He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism. Life as a prince living in the wealthy circumstances of a noble family . In his late twenties, Prince Siddhartha encountered the “four signs” during excursions from the palace. He realized that the only way out of this suffering world of samsara was through finding and following the right spiritual path. He gave up the ascetic way of life and turned to meditation, until he reached his goal of enlightenment under the Bodhi-tree in Bodhgaya. Interesting story of who the noble prince was, the major events of his life, and the incredible legacy that he left behind for the world with the creation of Buddhism.
    In this beautiful thangka , depicted together with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. As a dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings .

    Nor matter what race or religion, one of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and be understood. Animals of different species can be together, playing together and have a close bond, we as human too could do it. Dogs aren’t only man’s best friend, there are other animals playing together. With patience, the seeds of loving-kindness, and understanding even our enemies can become friends. Most important whether that person is of the same race, faith, rich or poor, good or bad ,all are treated equally. There is a time for silence with the one who hurts us and yet a time to let go of the past. We should love all beings too.
    I have seen wonderful pictures of people and animals hugging, playing together, it tell us a special bond between them. When we love them….the animals will gives you loves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and teachings.

    Jetsun Milarepa was a Tibetan siddha, who famously was a murderer as a young man then turned to Buddhism to become an accomplished buddha despite his past. He is generally considered as one of Tibet’s most famous yogis and poets, serving as an example for the Buddhist life. Interesting biography of Milarepa which I truly enjoying and inspiring story of him. Depicted with Mahasiddha Marpa a great translator, Vajravarahi is a semi-wrathful form of Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, created a beautiful powerful thangka .

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition. As an enlightened being, Buddha Tsongkhapa has the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. His practice is very powerful reliable and beneficial, as he was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani . Among the many renowned teachings he gave and dharma texts he composed, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. We are fortunate , having the chance to receive and practice Dharma teachings from Lama Tsongkhapa through our lama. Beautiful thangka depicted along with Dorje Shugden the powerful Dharma Protector.

    It is interesting that there are certain people who have psychic power or some sort of ability that a normal person may not have. Hard to explain why they are special scientifically but I believe each person have different capabilities in this world. For me if a person if gifted with certain capabilities, then they should use it to benefit others and not bring harm for own benefit and greed. Many however, will abuse the abilities to make profit and for personal agenda.

    On the other subject on mantra, it is powerful words of Buddha which brings benefit to not only to the person who recite it but can be dedicated to all sentient beings. Appreciation to Buddha for providing mantra for us to recite and opportunity to change the situation to be better.

    Thank you for the sharing, an inspiring article of a family growing up their kids and Living Off-The Grid in Lenggong Valley of Perak. I believe this is the positive mind set of the couples living closer to nature, explore to new ideas, being creativity, to live simple and happy with farming activities .

    There are number of people who are attracted to mother nature, they love the breezing air, greenery environment, and healthy living. Not many love to do this in this modern era where technology are vast growing where people are looking for more comfort and luxury homes.

    I loved the concept and the wonderful ideas of Tan and Ladia Kuta, being innovative, to facilitate, improve and to expend their living style. Thanks to The Coconut KL to introduce the Lenggong Valley and helping the couples to expend. Hope to get an opportunity to visit and enjoy the nature environment stay.

    Heard of this mythical creatures during my school days. Interesting stories and in Scottish folklore been told years ago. The Loch Ness monster is a marine creature that inhabits in the Scottish highlands waters. Recording to eye witness it is described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. There have been thousands of reported sightings of these creatures date back to ancient times. They ranged from eyewitness accounts by visitors to the area to unusual objects spotted by people. Many even has captured images of this creature but so forth there no hard evidence of it. Well I do believe that there was once do exist in ancient times .

    Reading all these inspiring worthy words appealing to H H Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, it tell us a thousand words. How much love and respect our Lama Tsem Rinpoche to H H Dalai Lama. Our lama always teaches us to respect H H Dalai Lama. This Dorje Shugden ‘s practice was passed down by generations of erudite lamas of the pure lineage since 400 years ago. For hundreds of years , many highly attained lamas has been propitiating and relying on Dorje Shugden as an Dharma Protector in the practice. They cannot be wrong in the practice. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered such as services denied, families and monasteries divided and so forth.
    May H H Dalai Lama please have a dialogue with Dorje Shugden’s practitioner , to resolve the ban which is affecting millions of people.
    Thank you Rinpoche with these inspiring worthy words of appeals.

    Extremely happy to see the Green Girls efforts to the success of Kechara’s Organic Farm. I liked they idea, to cultivate the space to grow their own delicious, greenery, fresh and healthy vegetables. Of course we know organic vegetables contain’s more nutritious, healthier and safe.

    Apart of looking at these attractive farm, I believe this farm will improves the ecology of the surrounding environment. Looking on the support of the volunteers, I hope this project will meet their goals and achieve to a greater extent.

    I’m sure this though role activity involved will help the green girls and Kechara volunteers to maintain a healthy mind and body.

Now i know how it was made , and the history after reading this post. So they made based on the tradition in Tibet and everyone could invite home and for traveling as well as the beautiful Tsa-tsa is small and convenience. Thank you for the informative article.

    Thank you for the sharing, I never heard about it before, it’s the belief that there’s a divine, mystical relationship between numbers and the projection of life. There is one thing important to know that every number has a unique vibration by itself.

    I had a good read to know the auspicious sign of number seven belongs to Buddha Tara. It ‘s also the culture believe that all numbers has it own qualities. What I understand from this article is there is a hidden supreme power and spirituality behind every numbers.

    Traditionally, the Stupa is a representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and, as such, is a method for harmonizing, purifying, and balancing the elements of the environment. Stupas are structures that have been built for thousands of years, representing the highest potential of the mind, and bringing peace, harmony, health, and happiness to the surroundings areas. By participating in the building of a stupa, it is an extremely great merits ,to purifying our negative Karma and obstacles and it will enriches one’s own body and mind. Rejoice to Ms Veronika Tupayachi, been involved in the construction of a Stupa in Cusco, Peru. The very first stupa been built in Peru with the effort of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. This project finally constructed after a few years and glad to hear from Ms Veronika who has not forgotten Rinpoche’s generosity and advices . May more people in Peru get to receive the blessing .
    Thank you 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

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 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
