(by Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

Paul Yap is a long-time student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, and Paul is also one of the newly elected Board of Directors of Kechara, managing various departments like Kechara House the temple, Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat, Kechara Discovery, Kechara Saraswati Arts and Kechara Blooms. Recently Paul suffers from some spinal problems and is having difficulty walking, and Tsem Rinpoche out of great concern goes all out to help Paul:

– Rinpoche went around town with Paul to consult various doctors and surgeons in various hospitals for second and third opinions to ensure Paul gets the best treatments

– Rinpoche bought wheel-chair to aid Paul’s mobility

– Rinpoche went with Paul to the physiotherapist and sponsored his regular therapy sessions

– Rinpoche bought Paul orthopedic shoes that will aid Paul to walk in a proper posture in order to heal his back

– Once in a dinner, Paul was experiencing pain, so Rinpoche arranged for a bed to be delivered to the restaurant and had Paul lie down to alleviate his pain, and Rinpoche also covered Paul with his own monk’s zen (part of the robes) to keep him warm.

– Rinpoche sponsored healing pujas for Paul in Kechara Puja house as well as in the monastery, and had Paul’s team members come together to do puja for Paul’s recovery as well

– Rinpoche converted the living room in Rinpoche’s own residence into Paul’s bedroom and arranged for the bed, pantry, TV, laptop etc. so that Paul can recuperate in the most comfortable environment possible, and Rinpoche has meals prepared for Paul daily by the kitchen

– Rinpoche arranged for barber to come over to give Paul a haircut because it was not convenient for Paul to travel in car

– Rinpoche arranged for Paul to take shower lying down so as to minimize the pain, and personally blow-dried Paul’s hair after the shower

– Rinpoche arranged an Amitayus statue in Paul’s recuperating room so that Paul could be blessed daily and be healed soon, and Rinpoche also prescribed some prayers for Paul to do personally

– Rinpoche visits Paul in his room often to give him words of encouragement to motivate him to get well soon. Rinpoche also arranged for some motivational videos for Paul to watch to give him confidence towards recovery

– Rinpoche invited Paul’s family members to visit him in Rinpoche’s residence where Paul is statying, to let them have a peace of mind that Paul is very well taken care of, so that they would not worry so much

etc. etc.

This is how much Tsem Rinpoche would do for just one person, to take care of him when he is sick, and Rinpoche always and consistently does the same for many of his students and their family members who are sick, and furthermore, Rinpoche also cares for animals to the same extent. Rinpoche shows us what it really means by being compassionate, and how to really show love and care for another person/sentient being.

Tsem Rinpoche teaches us by His own example: A Bodhisattva’s Ways of Life. The Bodhisattvas that are mentioned in the sutras and depicted in the thangkas, could really exist in real life in front of us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us the true conduct of a Buddhist!

  2. Phng Keng Hwa on May 25, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    Thank you for posting this, Pastor Loh.

    This really shows that we should be grateful for whatever we have and encounter and whoever we encounter during our life. Rinpoche really shows what a true friend would do for those he/she cares about. 🙂

    However, that does not mean we should take advantage of people like Rinpoche. That… would be very indecent.

  3. Robert Anderson on Apr 7, 2015 at 8:52 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for all you do!!! You are an inspiration to the entire world. I am so glad to have found him. He feel’s like family 🙂 I humbly bow to him.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing the post. Rinpoche has done so much for his students and to benefit others. May all Rinpoche students put dharma into practice to repay the kindness of their Guru.

  5. Ashlee on Dec 11, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche has always shown great love and care to his Gurus, students, friends and not to mention strangers. When he frequent the night markets, he would buy food to offer to the homeless and beggars. He always has his assistant carry around dog biscuits in their car and will be feeding strays whenever he sees them. As seen here, Rinpoche’s care is not just verbally asking “How are you and hope you recover soon”. He goes all the way out to make sure that Paul is being treated, have a comfortable & conducive place to heal,words of encouragement and etc. Most importantly, Rinpoche understands that Paul’s family would be worried and concern hence he arranged for them to visit Paul to let them know that he is being taken good care of. This is how kind Rinpoche is. He is a living Bodhisattva and it is truly a blessing for us to have such a great master guiding us in this degenerate age. Compassion is when you sympathize and act on it.

  6. Irene Lim on Nov 11, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Rinpoche is a living Bodhisattvas. All his activities are compassion in action.

  7. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 8, 2013 at 2:55 am

    Rinpoche always gets results in all that he does, and especially in taking care of people. Rinpoche care is not just limited to this life but future lifetimes too. People who are under rinpoche’s care like myself are truly a lucky lot.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Oct 7, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Like a Bodhisattva, Rinpoche is a highly attained being, live and care solely for the sake of others. Rinpoche’s life has been shaped by struggles and hurdles he has had to face, which would have made many of us bitterly angry, prejudiced, depressed, or even to the point of insanity! But to Rinpoche, it is “the most remarkable aspect of his life’s journey”, with every hardship he has transformed them into an experience of light, to be used as teachings materials for his students and others. As he has written in one of his books, “I can’t stop caring. I just can’t. If I know someone is in trouble, in pain, or needs help, I won’t be able to sleep. I’ll go crazy until I know they are okay. I just can’t leave.” That is the Bodhisattva of a Guru we have in Rinpoche.

  9. Su Ming on Oct 7, 2013 at 1:24 am

    Through my 5 years with Rinpoche. I have seen Rinpoche consistently looking after his students non stop. Some are grateful and some are not but Rinpoche never stop and continue to look after them. Sometimes, not only are they ungrateful, they even bite the hands that feed them at whatever cost. Sad but true.

    It can be from a very sick student who is striken by cancer/fever/etc to depression. The detailing of how Rinpoche cares for us is amazing that sometime even our own parents/partner/husband/wife/brothers/sisters/friends are not able to do at that level.

    Plus, being in the mandala ie: the house of the lama if your faith is strong, u tend to heal faster. I can attest to this as I was once very sick & Rinpoche took care of me with his attendants.

  10. Lucas Roth on Oct 6, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    this is another reason why we should love Rinpoche, he always helps us and this is just one of so many time Rinpoche has spent money, time and his personal help (very very very attained). thank you so much Rinpoche for always helping us and i hope uncle Paul gets better.

  11. Leu Chong Hin on Oct 6, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoches
    閱讀完這貼文,內心很感動。上師對學生無微不至的關懷和照顧是值得我們學習。上師對學生的一舉一動讓我感受到佛法的實用性。運用佛法與把知識實踐在生活中,給予需要在生活面對難題者幫助,那怕是微不足道幫助,我們也應該用心去完成。
    上師慈悲心,這一刻觸動了我的心。
    願上師生體健康。
    感謝上師
    合十

  12. Low Khjb on Oct 5, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.Indeed our Rinpoche is very compassionate towards his students and all those who has the merits to meet up with him.
    Paul Yap have been very dedicated to the growth of Kechara as long as we had known him.We certainly hope for his speedy recovery.In order for him to carry on his needed contribution towards the further developments in Kechara.
    With the care and blessing by Rinpoche towards Paul’s condition.We are sure that he will recover to his top form in no time.
    Get well soon Paul.
    We are very fortunate to have a guru who could show us the true essence of Dharma in real life…

  13. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 4, 2013 at 12:44 am

    These pictures touched me a lot, it shows that Rinpoche does care! And instead of just expressing it through words, Rinpoche does actions. Rinpoche has always been very caring and compassionate to others no matter who and what are they, and of course we have some who really do appreciate, and some don’t. I remember once, my grandmother was admitted to a hospital in Penang, her condition was critical. When Rinpoche got the news, He immediately came down to Penang and visited my grandmother also did some prayers for her, it happened when I was 5-6 years old, I will never forget about that.

  14. Girlie OOI on Oct 3, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Rinpoche shows by example that we should always reach out to help someone who is in need; there is no pulling of ranks, so to speak. In Paul’s case, Rinpoche went to great lengths to see to his every need and comfort. Not that Rinpoche would not extend the same to anyone else.

  15. Edward Ooi on Oct 3, 2013 at 2:25 am

    Rinpoche have always care a lot for His students. I still don’t know how did Paul’s back get this kind of problem and why did it happened? But I do know that now Paul’s back is so much better now is because he was under Rinpoche’s care

  16. Cliff on Oct 3, 2013 at 1:41 am

    Not many people have the same level of compassion as Rinpoche does, not many people would go to this extent of making sure they are alright and recuperating properly even if it were their family members and the best thing about Rinpoche is, is that Rinpoche does this to all of his students as well. Rinpoche has never stopped caring about anyone and always wants to keep benefiting other people. Rinpoche is a clear and pure example of compassion and a living Buddha of our time. Thank you Rinpoche for tirelessly taking care of everyone and everyone in Kechara, you are a great example of the potential that lies within all of us. I hope Rinpoche and Paul are feeling well.

  17. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 2, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    Rinpoche has showed by example of how far it takes to care for others who is not well. From taking Paul to consult various doctors to accompanying him to do physiotherapist and sponsored his regular therapy sessions, even arranged a bed to be sent to the restaurant for him to alleviate his pain, and even used his own monk’s zen to keep him warm, this is beyond what an ordinary person will do, or wouldn’t do. Rinpoche has showed us the most genuine way to care for others just for the sake of others and not for the sake of oneself. This is genuine care for others out of compassion and love, BIG THANK YOU to Rinpoche for always teaching us by example and also for always caring for us. Many prayers to you and may I be able to benefit others too.

  18. Andrew James Boon on Oct 2, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    It is evident that Rinpoche’s kindness truly knows no bounds. Rinpoche would bend backwards just to ensure we are all well taken care of and protected…

    This care is pervasive throughout Kechara especially so among the closest students by Rinpoche’s side as they tend to emulate our Guru’s example. A few such persons are BOD Chuah Su Ming who heads Kechara Care (enough said), BOD JP Thong who nurtured me from the time I joined, BOD Dato’ Ruby Khong who inspires and always has the perfect words of advise and celebrity host and BOD Phng Li Kim who has been always there for me… this is but to name a few persons who I have the privilege and honour to call my Dharma brother and sisters! In this case imitation IS the greatest form of flattery!

    Thank you Rinpoche for always being there for each and everyone of us, near or far, student or stranger, human or animal, living or dead… with folded hands and gratitude!

    Namo Guru Beh
    Namo Buddhaya
    Namo Dharmaya
    Namo Sanghaya.

    我从不后悔皈依仁波切。 他爱我与我的家人,我爱他。 他要我学会做人!仁波切从来没有要我给些什么, 仁波切只要我们战胜自己的心魔!

    Paul Yap 是我的部门主管, 在他生病的日子里,仁波切让他坚强!我们因为一份爱, 不停的也为他加油打气!

    把工作做好自动自发,就是让主管安心养病, 与让仁波切不用担心的最好礼物!

    希望 Paul Yap 快点好起来!

  20. Patsy on Oct 1, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    No matter how busy or tired Rinpoche is, He never fails to assist anyone who is in need. Rinpoche’s students are very fortunate as Rinpoche not only gives dharma teachings but Rinpoche also takes care of the well being of his students and others. Students should appreciate and show gratitude towards Rinpoche for his compassionate actions that we all should follow and support his works so that Rinpoche can benefit even more beings.

  21. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 1, 2013 at 3:23 am

    When someone who work with Tsem Rinpoche, he will take care of that person’s well being, so when that person falls, he will hold him up, when he down with illness, Rinpoche will take every effort to take care of him, even though Rinpoche was sick, not feeling well, or having serious body-ache, he’ll still go all out to take care of that student until he’s fully recovered.

    These pictures shows what he can do and willing to do for his students, from buying shoe till wash them, He does not claim he’s a high lama and sit there waiting for other people to serve him, but in fact, he always say he’s just normal human being that is here to practice Dharma, and from his action, we can clearly sees that he does what he says, he really kept his Dharma practice seriously, never even once that i saw him slipped from his practice, I always call Tsem Rinpoche a walking Dharma, because every action in daily is just full of Dharma teachings.

  22. AdelineTan on Oct 1, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Beautiful Guru/student relationship!! Wishing Paul a speedy recovery. Thank you SP for sharing.

  23. Julien Roth on Sep 30, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Rinpoche is so kind to be able to this all this and put so much effort into it. Rinpoche really cares fro others, and this is the proof. I was surprised that Rinpoche had actually done this for Paul, so kind and so much compassion.

  24. Wylfred Ng on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Rinpoche is really a caring Guru.

  25. Sean Wang on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche always cares so much for his students and does not ask for anything in return. This is true compassion and the students should do the same for the guru. We must be able to help people are are not related to us through blood because by helping others unconditionally, we are practicing compassion.

    Tsem Rinpoche is not an ordinary person. He is an extraordinary guru who only practices selflessness, compassion and many more good things in his life.

  26. Shelly tai on Sep 30, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Thank you SP for posting this blog post. Rinpoche is always help us when we are at the most difficult situation, Rinpoche never give up on his students he will do whatever he can to see us transform and he will encourage us not to give up the Dharma.

  27. Ck siah on Sep 30, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    可见得我们大慈大悲的仁波切不管是对上师或弟子需要照顾时,仁波切都是一视同仁的对待他们而照顾的无微不至。谢谢SENG PIOW分享这让我觉得很感动又羡慕的的画面。
    谢谢仁波切的教诲和开示,佛法对众生都是一视同仁,没有贵贱之分,最重要是我们要有慈悲心和大爱心。
    祈愿叶师杰师兄在仁波切的照顾和加持,可以早日康复。

  28. June Tang (KHJB) on Sep 30, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing the post.When I look at these pictures,it is really touched my heart and bring tears to my eyes…Rinpoche always care for everyone around him,especially during in very difficult situation.We are so so so fortunate to meet and have Rinpoche in Kechara,we should love him as he love all of us !!!

  29. Choongs on Sep 30, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    First like a filiel son to a father and now like a loving father to a son.

  30. May Ong on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche had previously taken good care of his Guru, Kensur Jampa Yeshe in Gaden Monastery, India and he is repeating the same care, compassion and kindness to Paul SK Yap who is in this case, his long time student with the same consistency.

    This is a clear lesson to be learned by many of us. Can we actually show the same care for strangers who are not biologically linked to us? A time for reflection on us of who we are and what we can do.

    Tsem Rinpoche is definitely NOT an ordinary being, for he practices selflessness, generosity, ethics, effort, concentration and compassion – all qualities of a Boddhisattva.

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    I feel so blessed for learning something from this article. Thank you so much for your thoughtful sharing. I truly understand the possess power to change our lives during our falls was actually a good sign. I gained some positive energy and felt was extremely incredible!

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

    Interesting ….. astronauts and military personnel has discovered the existence of UFO and aliens beyond the earth. They have proof that UFO do exist and we are alone in the universe. Leroy Gordon Cooper, a space pioneer and Robert Dean a retired Command Sergeant Major in the US Army tells us all . With Leroy Gordon witnessed first-hand encounter of an actual UFO and the “Cosmic Top Secret” documents detailing alien activity on earth viewed by Robert Dean has already proven it. But it was kept secret.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining the present-day technology that has affected our general well-being situation spiritually . Giving an example of why rain dance doesn’t work anymore. Spiritual practice give us aspects of the powers of the divine. Technology is a magic and its objects remains a puzzle that is hard to unlock in regards to human experiences. The effect of technology could enhance the human material civilization, but its impact was so strong to our spiritual practice, it caused human addiction. In the modern era, technology has become a seemingly ubiquitous part of everyone’s life such as computers and hand phones. The natural element are gone, environment been disturbed so things will not happen . Interesting read.
    Professor Stephen Hawking, did mention before that advances in science and technology could lead to destructions .

    Living our life in the public eye , we have a heavy responsibility on our shoulder that most people thought. But with determination and courageous Rinpoche did it without any burden. Rinpoche did it all these years, born and bred to be in the public eye, Rinpoche seemed to know what to do without thinking about it. A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives that’s what Rinpoche thought of. Rinpoche’s thought was to help them and to bless their spiritual practice in a way. Rinpoche cares more for the people than himself, of course Rinpoche loves to be alone. Rinpoche loves to alone living up the greenery mountains and clear lakes as mentioned before. Rinpoche could not avoid being in the public eye and getting recognized. Rinpoche never retaliated in whatever situation, such as the Dorje Shugden controversy ,Rinpoche kept all his vows in accordance with the Vinaya nor matter what happened.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your wonderful recalling memories with our Lama.

    I am grateful that Kechara organise this event every year so we can make offering to our ancestor, departed families and also to all sentient beings whether alive or not. We may not know what action we have engaged which afflicted others in the past and the prayer is important to purify our negative karma. Thank you Kechara for organising this event and allow us the opportunity to collect merits through the prayer and offerings.

    A very beautiful Buddha statue. With this huge size many beings can view from a far and benefit them by planting a dharma seed to them. I’m sure the statue will attract a lot of people to visit Thimpu in Bhutan. May all be blessed and rejoice for the people for are involved in the planning, sponsorship and construction.

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.

    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
