Tsem Rinpoche with Dato’ Eric Tan at Kechara Forest Retreat 詹杜固仁波切与拿督陈摄于克切拉禅修林

Being Rinpoche’s personal attendant means that I am able to witness real Dharma in action, both on and off the throne. I consider myself extremely fortunate, and at the same time it is also a great challenge to instil Dharma in my life 24/7.

Over the years I have witnessed many cases of how Rinpoche helped many people in both worldly and supramundane ways, so I decided to have these stories told in comic form for the wider audience. It is my wish that through these stories many will be inspired to achieve the state of compassion and attainments like Tsem Rinpoche, so that many more sentient beings can be helped.

Pastor Loh Seng Piow

身为仁波切的私人助理,意味着不仁波切管是在法座上或法座下,我都能亲眼见证他如何实践佛法。我自认自己是十分幸运的,同时,这也是我24小时7天全天候投入于佛法中的一大挑战。

这些年来我见证了许多仁波切如何以世俗与超世俗的方式帮助众人的个案,因此我决定将这些故事画成漫画,让跟多读者受惠。我希望透过这些故事启发大家立志证得像詹仁波切那样的慈悲心和成就,以让芸芸众生得到帮助。

    Over the years reading Rinpoche blog’s post , I have come across many true stories of how Rinpoche has helped countless of students and people in their career, sickness, business and so forth. Reading this post story is really amazing how relying on Setrap Protector and having trust and faith in our Guru has help Dato Eric Tan in his business . Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this sharing. May more people read this post and be inspired.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this story. It is amazing and marvelous. This miracle happened to Datuk Eric that mean it also can happen to all Rinpoche’s diciples. How lucky to have Rinpoche in our life, as the compassion from Rinpoche, our protector-Setrap and Dorje Shugden helps us. What a student should do is to follow the instruction from Rinpoche, do Sadhana daily and have full faith in Rinpoche, just like what Rinpoche said, we believe in him 100%(protector)we will have 100% result. Thank you Rinpoche to be in my life, and I feel safe by following you.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 3, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    Protector Setrap helps and benefits all beings, big or small. Even big businesses can be assisted by Protector amazing.

  4. Hee TS on Aug 16, 2014 at 5:53 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享,通过这真人真事的事迹,相信会让大家对上师和金甲衣护法有更深一步的了解和信心。而通过这Dato’ Eric Tan 的故事,让人们深深体会到依止上师,对上师和金甲衣护法神的绝对信任是多么的重要。尤其是有百分百的信心,就能得到百分百的利益。

  5. PB on Jul 11, 2014 at 10:27 pm

    It is so important to have GURU guiding us in our spiritual journey. We sometimes lost direction, confused, influenced by friends and derail from our spiritual path. Guru helps us, care for us, and provides direction so that we can stay on the right path, improved and transform.

    Thank you Rinpoche
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.

  6. freon on Jul 11, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    Wow, as i read this story. My tears and laughter so along the story line. Dato Eric have gone through so many up and down in his life.

    But, Dato Eric hard work and his strong devotion towards Rinpoche make him success. The most beautiful thing is, Dato Eric not only a Business person but a Dharma practitioner. Thus the projects he build bring fortune to Melaka.

    Thanks to Seng Piow for the beautiful story

  7. Uncle Eddie on Jul 10, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    Dharmapala is a powerful enlightened Dharma protector of the illustrious 600-year-old Gaden Shartse Monastry, introduced by Rinpoche to Kechara to help clear obstacles and bring sucess and harmony to all Malaysians. Other benefits of Dharmapala Lord Setrap’s practice also includes receiving powerful protection against black magic and spirit possessions! Rinpoche’s blog teachings have also been highly appraised by many overseas practioners admiringly as follows:- “His clarity, wit and style makes the Dharma accessible and applicable to all aspects of life”. Therefore, with absolute strong faith in the protector’s capability, coupled with Rinpoche’s careful guidance and advice, will lead to a successful result of one’s hard efforts! Congrats to Dato Eric for his srtong faith and Guru Devotion.

  8. Tong sunsun on Dec 15, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Dato Eric 的大起大落真的让人无限唏嘘,但最重要的是Dato 对上师100% 的依止让他度过一关又一关。让我们知道依止上师是对上师和护法的绝对信任是多么的重要.

  9. jerry_sito on Dec 5, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    感恩仁波切的教诲与开示

    在这故事里,最动容我的心的那句话是: 我们做弟子的应当把上师放在首位,就是因为有了上师,护法才得以示显,我们对上师恭敬虔诚,对佛法投入的程度,决定了我们能否在护法哪里得到感应

    感恩尊贵的詹杜固仁波切,在您的大爱与加持下,让我们有机会学习到如此殊胜的金甲衣护法法门,让我们在佛法的路上障碍消除,没有您就没有了这份机缘能学习到如此殊胜及来自甘丹寺传承的护法法门

    祈愿仁波切您长驻在世,常转法轮

    Appreciation to my father who shared with me about this blog, this weblog is truly
    amazing.

  11. Julien Roth on Sep 16, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    There are always ups and downs in life. But it is how you deal with them is what matters. In this, Datuk has chosen Rinpoche and Setrap to help him get through all those though times, which is probably the best thing that could help you in life or any obstacles. There is so much power. And Datuk was very lucky to be able to understand all the power.

  12. Lucas Roth on Sep 16, 2013 at 12:02 am

    buddhas can help in any ways but you need the right karma and they will help even in financial things, Rinpoche is always so kind to help everybody with their problems. these stories are truly miracles of Tsem Rinpoche.

    Dato Eric is a fine example of guru devotion. He has been a long time student of Rinpoche and believed in Rinpoche and Protector. Whether Dato Eric is in his downs or ups, he always relied on Rinpoche and the Protector for guidance. His success today is his faith in the Dharma.

  15. Davin on Jan 6, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing. The story will help and inspired a lot people. As an enlightened dharma protector, Lord Setrap can protect and guide us. Lord Setrap prayers and pujas are very powerful and effective in clearing away obstacles. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing the Setrap practice to us.

  16. pavara on Sep 18, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    all these miracles can come true if you follow rinpoches instructions100% your wish.

  17. Irene Lim on Sep 4, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Faith and trust in the guru are important in our mundane and spiritual happiness.

  18. Christine Wang on Aug 26, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Another great comic story! It’s such a wonderful way to tell Rinpoche’s story by Comics. It’s fun! Thanks to Dato Eric for sharing his story. The story will encourage so many people to have the faith to the Protector and do our daily practise.

    The stories confirmed one thing again and again. Rinpoche is the Living Buddha. We are so lucky to meet Rinpoche and receive Rinpoche’s teaching in this lifetime.

  19. Leann Lim on Aug 26, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享,和胜彪师兄的用心..通过这些真人真事的事迹,相信会让大众对上师和护法神有更深一步的了解和升起不可抑制的信心。而通过这Dato’ Eric Tan 的故事,让人们深深体会到依止上师,对上师和护法神的绝对信任是多么的重要。 因为我们无法掌握未来,但上师和护法神却可以在这方面帮助我们,只是视乎我们的信任程度到哪。

    有时候,我觉得我们是幸运的,在有幸遇到上师的这年代,这时候,如发生事情,或有不好的遭遇是好事来的,因为通过明白因果,和拥有上师,护法的帮助,我们可以更快的消除业障,并在佛法的道路上更顺利。

  20. Sean Pang on Aug 24, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    What an inspiring story! If anyone out there is looking for “proof”, here it is.

    “If you believe in him 100%, you will get 100% results! If you half believe in him then you just get half the benefits.”. It really is that simple and logical, and it can be applied to everything in our daily lives except we’re talking about believing a higher being that can really help us.

    Our belief is only as strong as our commitment. Obstacles can and will come and go but our belief must not be shaken or lessened. Dato’ Tan’s experience isn’t something most of us can go through. Even the loss of hundreds of companies previously owned by him and suffering a financial loss of 40 million Singapore dollars at one go did not drive Dato’ Tan to give up on either himself or Rinpoche or his daily Protector practice. If we think about it, what are our trifle difficulties compared to what he went through? As the saying goes, “the higher you climb, the harder you fall”. But it takes a strong will to stand up and walk on. Dato’ Tan’s unshaken belief in Rinpoche and the Protector helped him to do that.

    Thank you, Dato’ Tan, for your story. It truly is an inspiration.

    Thank you, Seng Piow, for sharing Dato’ Tan’s story with us.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for endlessly and tirelessly being our Guru.

    no matter how bad time is, believe and have faith in Setrap and Rinpoche. Go through all the obstacles, learn from them, and practise dharma.

  22. Edwin Tan on Aug 23, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for always guiding us, teaching us. If it wasn’t for Rinpoche who constantly reminds me to be filial to my dad, and what tough times he was going through, i wouldn’t know how pampered i was. It was through Rinpoche and Setrap’s help that make us what we are today. Deepest respect to my guru’s advice. For that, i will gladly give my all to Rinpoche, to Dharma.

    Thank you Seng Piow for creating this wonderful comic, deepest appreciation for the hard work to you and your team.

  23. su_zan on Aug 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    This story shares that 100% trust is very important. Rinpoche never give up in helping Dato and also with Dato’s own effort of keeping up his practice is also a great help.

  24. soonhuat on Aug 21, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    After reading this, i think i need to do more Setrap Puja.

  25. David Lai on Aug 21, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    What an interesting story of Datuk Eric Tan. I find the story believable and I am sure it reflects the many students who don’t trust the advice of their Lama.

    I like Datuk Eric Tan’s story because he eventually developed faith in his Lama because Rinpoche’s divination is highly accurate. For many people, Dharma is just about beautiful words and beautiful philosophy. Hence, there’s no spiritual growth. Great examples like Dato Eric that inspires real faith in the Dharma and in our Lama. That’s because people like Datuk Eric Tan would never believe in the Dharma or our Lama. Hence, it is stories like Datuk Tan that inspires people the most.

  26. EricLee KHJB on Aug 21, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    这一则故事,让我想起了自己的家族生意,也是一样在1997年的金融风暴时发生的。因为受全球金融风暴的影响,我哥把父亲辛苦努力了40年的成果,全都输光了,不止连累了我们家人,连身边的亲朋戚友也受牵连。也因为这件事而间接的影响了我自己的家庭生活。但是,自从修习了金甲衣护法的法会,生活有了很大的改善,虽然还不能解决之前所面对的问题,但是至少可以比较容易度过一些难关,只要都护法有信心,我相信所有的问题都能迎刃而解。

  27. Lim (KH JB) on Aug 20, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Rejoice for Dato Eric and Seng Piow for the sharing.

    Guru is a living Buddha, we are so fortunate to meet Living Buddha in beautiful Malaysia. Thanks Rinpoche for always care about us with fold hand.

    Believe 100% get 100%, what are we waiting for???

  28. June Tang KHJB on Aug 20, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing another amazing story with us .So fortunate for Dato’ Eric Tan to be able to meet Rinpoche and get such a precious advice in order for him to pass over his obstacles. We must have faith and follow the instructions 100% all the way and put them into action, without putting in effort,will not be any good result!!

  29. Don Buchwalter on Aug 20, 2012 at 6:44 am

    This is one of my favourite stories from the “Miracles of Tsem Rinpoche” series. So many people believe that following the Dharma requires an austere, ascetic, life. Faithfully following the Dharma can bring material benefit in this life, in addition to the true, lasting benefits which practice brings!

    Thank you, Rinpoche! And thank you, Seng Piow, for sharing the story!

  30. Low ksjc on Aug 19, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.We rejoice the success for Dato Eric and his strong faith for the Protector ” Lord Setrap”.His is a good example in showing us the path ,that strong faith in Guru devotion is very important.In good times and in bad times the Guru shows us the way to over come our future obstacles.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

  31. Girlie Ooi on Aug 19, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Dato’ Eric went through trials and tribulations – he stuck through thick and thin and had unwavering faith in both Rinpoche and our Dharma protector.

  32. MayOng on Aug 19, 2012 at 8:18 am

    From the story here, Dato’ Eric Tan is not someone who gives up easily or be defeated both in corporate world or spiritually. He learnt the hard way of not taking Rinpoche’s advice initially but as life is impermanent, he choose to change his mind and followed Rinpoche’s advice later and results followed with success. Believing in the protector is not enough but listening to the Guru’s advice is also very crucial. We need both the spiritual teacher and the protector for success in life.

  33. abby f on Aug 19, 2012 at 1:30 am

    拿督陈对金甲衣护法、詹仁波切及金甲衣护法的信念,不仅使他的生意有所起色,更使他一家与仁波切与金甲衣结下深厚的缘分。拿督陈儿子的婚礼,也由詹仁波切见证和加持。而拿督陈对詹仁波切的赞助,也使仁波切在大马的佛教事业开花结果,今天我才有机会听闻仁波切的佛法。

    感谢仁波切的慈悲,和拿督陈的慷慨。希望每个人都能接受金甲衣护法的庇佑和加持。

  34. Han on Aug 19, 2012 at 1:06 am

    只要对金甲衣护法拥有百分百的信心,肯定有百分百的利益。非常认同,有时候在祈求护法时也许结果以世俗角度来看是“负面”的,但一路走下去,结果是让人欢喜的,拿督陈这个案就是非常明显的例子。
    最重要的就是以真诚的心修持金甲衣护法。。。谢谢仁波切给予我们这么珍贵的修持法门!

  35. lucy yap on Aug 18, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    If we put guru devotion on one side of the scale and all the topics Lamrim on the other side ,guru devotion will always weigh more,that’s how important Guru Devotion is.
    Dato Eric pure devotion to Lord Setrap and Rinpoche has benefited him in the end.
    Te essence of our life is practicing guru devotion,realizing the incomparable kindness of our Guru,who is kinder then anybody else. Thank you Seng Piow for this inspiring story.

  36. Choi Sheem on Aug 18, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    This is a very inspirational lesson on following our guru’s instructions and advice. I admire Dato Eric’s faith in Setrap and that he never fails to do his Setrap practice wherever he may be. This story reinforces my believe in Rinpoche and like I was taught, to always see Rinpoche as one with Setrap.

  37. mitra on Aug 18, 2012 at 9:57 am

    thank you rinpoche for sharing for this blog.very tuching story.setrap +guru help me also alot . i belive setrap and my guru.thanks alot.

  38. andy ngin on Aug 18, 2012 at 7:35 am

    can i know when will there be any talks or praying ceremony or any preaching sessions ?

  39. Lim Han Nee on Aug 17, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    In this story, we are reminded yet again how important it is to have 100% faith, trust and devotion in our Guru and in Protector Setrap. Rinpoche shows great compassion as always. Here too Rinpoche also shows us that it is important to remember and repay the kindness of others. We have learned from senior students how Datuk Eric and his family had helped Rinpoche during a period when Rinpoche needed their help most.

  40. yenpin on Aug 17, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    我们对金甲衣护法要有很强烈的信心,金甲衣护法一定能帮助我们去除业障,生活和事业上的问题,我们对上师和护法要有坚强的信念,在保护我们的时,将有会帮助到我们的需要。

  41. wei theng on Aug 17, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Thank you for sharing this story. This is showing us again how compassion our Guru and Protector are to us. It is us that do not believe in them that causing us problem. As per what Rinpoche have told Dato Eric, if you believe in Protector 100%, protector will help you 100%, if you believe in 50%, then you only get 50%.
    Besides that, i would like to thank Dato for contributing back and helping Rinpoche in his Dharma work after his has success in his business with the help of Rinpoche & Protector. I heard stories from P. Chia on how Dato Eric has helped Rinpoche during the earlier years and that we can have Kechara now.
    May him and his family always be with Buddha Dharma & protector blessings.

  42. grace (KSJC) on Aug 17, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    As per what Rinpoche have told Dato Tan, if you believe in Setrap 100%, Setrap will help you 100%, if you believe in 50%, then you only get 50% .i strongly agrre on that as my personal experience has match the words. We need to have strong faith in our Guru and protector, Protector will help when we in need.

  43. patsy on Aug 17, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    So many people have benefited and received so much help and guidance from Rinpoche and Setrap due to Rinpoche’s compassion for all beings. Faith in our Guru is very important and though Dato Eric faced many obstacles in his business, he never gave up his faith in Rinpoche and Setrap. Now he is enjoying his success and continuing supporting Rinpoche’s dharma work and projects.

  44. tenzin llhamo on Aug 17, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Such an inspiring story! Yes I believe in the Protector 100% as I know He have helped me in many many ways. Now when I think about my past and all that happened, I TRULY believe that He took care of me from a long time ago. My faith in Rinpoche and my Protector is the same for they are ONE!

  45. Veron Tung on Aug 17, 2012 at 8:12 am

    就是那么简单一句:百分之百的信心,就能得到百分百的利益。一分信心,一分利益。就是那么简单。但多少人能相信?活生生的例子摆在眼前了。为何不信?
    每次到马六甲都一定会到dataran pahlawan广场逛逛。殊不知这永远那么多人潮的地方背后的灵魂人物的故事是这样的。
    谢谢仁波切的分享!

  46. judy lam on Aug 17, 2012 at 1:43 am

    It is very heartwarming to see Dato’ Eric’s friendship and guru devotion towards Rinpoche no matter what difficulties he was in, and of course, his faith in Setrap. So happy to see Dato’ Eric having a thriving business in Melaka now. Congrats on the official opening of Hatten City!

  47. nicholas on Aug 17, 2012 at 12:33 am

    There have been a lot of people benefited from Rinpoche advises and Lord Setrap practices. Getting advises and not following through or half way doesn’t help in fact shows that how much we are devoted and believe the Guru.
    Faith and devotion is very important and not forgetting consistent effort.

    Dato’ Eric tells us his experience and the important if we want our practices to be flourish.

    I like this: If you believe him 100% , you wil get 100% results.

  48. wah ying on Aug 16, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    This story and other stories I heard proved to me that we should follow our Guru’s instruction without slight deviation like a filial child.

    To follow your Guru not because of worshiping or anything else but faith in your Guru as a holy being who is compassion and cares for your welfare of this life and future lives. He or she gains nothing from you by you following his instruction.

    By following your Guru’s instructions not only save you the hardship which can be avoided but you can fly instead jump.

    “If you don’t have a Guru, when you come to the cliff, you jump; but if you have a Guru, when you come to the cliff, you FLY…”

  49. June Kang on Aug 16, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Another story about Rinpoche’s compassion. Rinpoche is always taking care of everyone. Even sometime you don’t follow what he said, when you need Rinpoche’s help, he still be there to help us. Therefore, we must have faith in our guru because he gain nothing from us and we are the one who always need him to guide us to the path of enlightenment.

  50. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 16, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Reading this makes me think about the “Secret’ and how it wont realy work, people can do a lot and get very little, some do very little and get a lot. The use of Secret to have a totally positive mind is good , but without the supporting karmic energy it is going to be very hard for something to happen in the direction we wish it to be.

  51. Henry Ooi on Aug 16, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    So many Kecharians and non Kecharians have benefited and received so much assistance from Rinpoche and dharma protector Lord Setrap. Dato Eric’s true story is yet another of those told and there are so many more stories to unfold. Yet still, there are also many stories that may not be told without permission from the receivers who had benefited. This tells of Rinpoche’s compassion to all beings and the mystical working of the enlightened dharma protector, Lord Setrap.

    • DR on Aug 28, 2012 at 11:31 am

      You are absolutely correct that so many people have benefitted from Rinpoche’s help. If we are to publish every single story, it would be enough to fill up a library! Seriously. Rinpoche works 24/7, his phone is never off. People from different countries email in for help, read Rinpoche’s blog (which Rinpoche spends sleepless nights writting and posting)and their lives change. So Rinpoche even helps those who are not in this country. Let alone the dogs, birds, etc that he rescues and saves. Amazing!

  52. Grace Leong on Aug 16, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Thank you again for such an inspiring story . It is so true that when we embark on a spiritual journey , there are times when we become unsure , we stumble , we become lazy , we get confused by others discouraging us ! The instruction to succeed is actually very clear – just follow the Guru’s instructions 100% ! The Guru is here , right beside us . If we believe in Him 100% we will benefit all , if we believe only half then expect only half the benefits ! May we be able to continue to create the merits for Rinpoche to stay in Malaysia with us to continue to guide and benefit all sentient beings !!

    Thank you Seng PIow. Dato Eric is an example of many in Kechara House. We should all have faith in our own Guru.

  54. Louise Lee on Aug 16, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    We got a good friend, always belong with us 24hour ! No matter when we go !

  55. Jace Chong on Aug 16, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing the Buddhist Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka. Very touching article, heart breaking to read and to see pictures of the Tsunami tragedy. It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.

    Surprise to know our colon contain of poison due to unbalance diet of food intake. It really true, our body is often conceded toxins as a result of an unhealthy food consumed. However i think it is best to keep a food journal correctly to maintain and track our food intake.

    It is really important to eliminate waste from your body every day to maintain a good lifestyle and stay healthy. Hoping to keep the simple ingredients in mind and help many to keep their colon healthy.

    Thank you very much for the article sharing a great fact that we need to take it

    A very good choice to place a Buddha statue there to bless the beings that are around that area. Many people had lost their lives during the tsunami in 2004 and I believe that area will be full of the spirits of the people that lost their lives during disaster.
    It good that Sri Lanka has since built and dedicated a Buddha statue for the deceased and to plant the seeds of enlightenment for all who visit and see it. Thank you for sharing nice article with us.

    Winston Churchill was a British politician, military officer and writer who did twice served as the prime minister of Great Britain. Churchill did helped to lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Soviet Union during World War II. I did not know of his dark side till this post. Winston Churchill was in fact a clear racist and a stubborn imperialist. To many historians Churchill was seen as at the most brutal and brutish end of the British imperialist spectrum. Churchill’s imperialism was motivated only by an altruistic desire to elevate the putatively lower races. Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin. He hate Indians recording to him they are a beastly people with a beastly religion. These are another side to Churchill’s politics and career that should not be forgotten amid the endless parade of eulogies.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of this great statesman with a darker side behind.

    Thank you H.E. Gyara Rinpoche for spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many thousands Tibetans in Tibet . H.E. Gyara Rinpoche an erudite scholar recently gave Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation to thousands of monks and lay people in Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has claimed that Dorje Shugden practice is a minor practice on many occasions. This is not true at all, looking at the pictures tells all. Thousands of Tibetans gathers at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, listening to Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings as well as the Guhyasamaja initiation clearly has proven it. He also gave commentary on Dorje Shugden’s qualities, history to strengthen the people’s faith in Dorje Shugden and explaining about the controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news and may more people have knowledge and understanding of Dorje Shugden . May the ban on it be lifted soon.

    Truly a selfless heroine indeed Neerja Bhanot an Indian senior flight attendant who died while saving 340 passengers on Pan Am Flight 73. The plane was hijacked by terrorists dressed as security guards during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan. She died heroically helping cockpit crews escape in order to ground the plane so it could not be flown. Amazingly her quick action she hid passports of passengers so the hijackers could not determine passenger nationalities. She also managed to open the emergency door assisting a number of passengers to escape from the plane. But sadly as the hijackers opened fire on passengers and crew, Neerja Bhanot lost her life shielding the three children from bullets. Her bravery, courage and noble qualities , she was awarded awards for her selfless act and a film entitled “Neerja” was released, portraying her herioc life. A trust fund was set up in memory of this amazing woman. Even till today the Neerja Bhanot Pan Am Trust fund continues to do great work.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story of a selfless heroine.

    Truly inspiring article, glad to know about the free community clinic of Acupuncture at Ananda Nagar. Firstly I would like to thank Mr. Charles Martley, for his effort to create a help center for the needy at the rural area. His great concern of the environment people and able to build a good relationship to reach them.

    I believe, ass long these free acupuncture treatments is effective, it will be accepted and will welcome many more to seek treatment. I ‘am also puzzled with the great humanitarians of the acupuncturist who work tirelessly, for these patients, as there are only so few of them but willing to render their service at any time without fail.

    Thank you for the sharing, hope to visit and contribute something for the project and do wish the program will continue to support and help the needy.

    There is a saying rich men have dreams. Poor men die to make them come true. When one is rich they take things for granted, nothing is valued to them and don’t appreciate things but definitely not the poor. The rich will derive motivation from their financial success, and refuse the belief that money begets corruption. To say it simple the rich will do things where else the poor can’t. People born with a golden spoon will not know much the sufferings the poor had gone through. When the rich understand the pain and sufferings of the poor they will be more responsible and generous to do more for charity. The rich working up from nothing to riches will know more and be successful in life. To me rich at heart is more important , good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings to have. Well survey work of the rich and the poor for us to understand better between the difference.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    All Buddhist practitioners or of others faith deserve to have religious freedom of their choice to what they want to pray. The ban on Dorje Shugden practice is unnecessary and illogical till to this day. The ban created by the Tibetan Leadership has cause much suffering to many people around the world. It is time for more people to speak up against this Dorje Shugden ban that has caused disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries divided and so forth. The Tibetan Leadership not only make life harder for others but to themselves as well. They should accept their own failures not blaming others after all , they have been using the donations, for their benefits. Since coming to exile in India, they were given land , funds and so forth from many countries to help them yet they misused it.
    At this present time, what is most important is to lift the ban so as all practitioner be at peace and harmony , be true to themselves regardless of their choice of practice. Live life on own terms, not someone else’s, that’s makes life happy.
    All this while HH Dalai Lama have been promoting inter religious peace, harmony and understanding across the world yet when coming to Dorje Shugden practitioners it is not true in reality.
    I do hope the ban of Dorje Shugden’s practice will soon come to an end.
    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.

  • 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
