(By Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

The top few pictures shows the makeshift shed which the caretaker of Kechara Forest Retreat Azai and his wife were staying in, when Tsem Rinpoche saw that, Rinpoche decided to build him a proper “home” to stay in. So for weeks, Rinpoche personally planned and supervised under sun and rain until the completion of Azai’s new “home, complete with living room, bedroom, shower and toilet, kitchen, dog area etc.

Azai and his wife are very touched by rinpoche’s kindness and care, they said ‘ribuan terima kasih’ meaning “thousands of thanks”.

One of the 6 Paramitas is giving, and one form of giving is the giving of fearlessness, in this case Rinpoche gives the caretaker and his wife the fearlessness from sun, rain, the fear of their roof being blown away by thunderstorm (happened last month), and the fear of wild animals, like mosquitoes, snakes and wild animals.

    Spontaneous action in giving.
    An example that will change on how we think of others especially those who came to work far away from home, their own country.

    Thank you to Rinpoche and others for the example. This article reminds us to be generous, both in thought and deeds.

  2. Lin Mun on Dec 10, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this heart warming experience. Rinpoche is always so caring, thoughtful and compassion to everyone.

    Rinpoche did not just give instructions but go to the site itself and plan the design and make sure everything is built with much thought and in good condition. What Rinpoche has done is so inspiring. We must always give 100% of our effort in whatever we do.

  3. Julien Roth on Oct 17, 2014 at 11:55 pm

    I remember when i saw this happen. At first, when i would go to KFR more often, i would always notice that there would be one man and his wife there every single day working. I also saw where they were living. I remember helping to clean up their house. But then when i found out that Rinpoche had organised for a new and better house to be made, i was so surprised. And i could see, when i went into their new house for the first time, there was so much effort put into it. So much love and kindness.

    I could tell that they loved the house very much, that it supplied a stable location and shelter for the loving couple. I was happy that they were happy, as they did deserve the house. They worked so hard at KFR. Without them, i don’t think KFR would be as developed as it is now.

    This also gives us a perfect example on the kindness and compassion of our gurus. I cannot think of anyone else who would do this for someone they barely know. Rinpoche was truly very kind. And the fact that Rinpoche put himself through the trouble to build an entire house! Its just amazing. It really motivates me to do more for people.

  4. DR on Oct 15, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    All the qualities everyone mentioned here captured the essence of a Bodhisattva. And this is our Rinpoche, who always puts others’ needs before his own. I have been with Rinpoche for 20 years and this quality in him is constant.

    To name all the people whom Rinpoche has helped directly (let alone those who indirectly benefitted too) would be enough not just to fill up a book but a library! Many appreciated and showed their gratitude by transforming their minds, few left and turned ugly. But he continues and is not marred. One of Rinpoche’s ‘favourite’ prayers is Shantideva’s Boddhichitta Prayer. His actions is a testament that he lives and breathes every word of it.

    May all beings everywhere
    Plagued by sufferings of body and mind
    Obtain an ocean of happiness and joy
    By virtue of my merits.

    May no living creature suffer,
    Commit evil, or ever fall ill.
    May no one be afraid or belittled,
    With a mind weighed down by depression.

    May the blind see forms
    And the deaf hear sounds,
    May those whose bodies are worn with toil
    Be restored on finding repose.

    May the naked find clothing,
    The hungry find food;
    May the thirsty find water
    And delicious drinks.

    May the poor find wealth,
    Those weak with sorrow find joy;
    May the forlorn find hope,
    Constant happiness, and prosperity.

    May there be timely rains
    And bountiful harvests;
    May all medicines be effective
    And wholesome prayers bear fruit.

    May all who are sick and ill
    Quickly be freed from their ailments.
    Whatever diseases there are in the world,
    May they never occur again.

    May the frightened cease to be afraid
    And those bound be freed;
    May the powerless find power,
    And may people think of benefiting each other.

    For as long as space remains,
    For as long as sentient beings remain,
    Until then may I too remain
    To dispel the miseries of the world.

    This is touching actions by Tsem Rinpoche. We should learn and observe our surrounding to try to help for those in need. The care and love should be the basis of creat a caring society.

  6. jimmy tan on Oct 13, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Ah Zai and his wife is very fortunate that able to meet Rinpoche. As they a meeting a Buddha it was very precious. Rinpoche always show his compassion by action . Rejoice for them .Love

  7. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 9, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for the sharing. Rinpoche teaches us dharma by walking the talks. Thank you Rinpoche.

  8. Hee TS on Oct 9, 2014 at 10:06 pm

    一如往常,仁波切總是那么的關心和親切,無論何時,何地,誰或如何。仁波切會親自花時間督促,以確保一切都能完美。展示了仁波切有多在乎他們,這也是展示給人們的關心的許多例子之一。

  9. Edwin Tan on Oct 9, 2014 at 3:59 pm

    Rinpoche always think ahead for others than himself. Rinpoche loves all his students and people that are involved with Kechara. This is just one of the many great things Rinpoche does for others.

  10. rita van der wijden on Oct 9, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    Maybe we are not able to do such a big thing as Rinpoche did, does. But in little things we can see the needs of people around us and try to help. I hope I see where I can be of help. This is an inspiring story. Thank you Rinpoche

  11. Julien Roth on Nov 19, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    This was so kind of Rinpoche. I have been to Azai’s new home and it is very nice and cozy. I am sure that he and his wife are enjoying his new home and their stay at Kechara Forest Retreat. They truly have earned this wonderful home.

  12. Jim Yeh on Sep 22, 2013 at 2:31 am

    Azai is a very hard working and skillful caretaker. I remember volunteering at KFR and working alongside Azai, who made everything look easy peasy. Azai is not afraid of hard work and get the job done without complaining.

    It is very heart warming to see Rinpoche building a house from ground up and the students helping out with the construction.

    Azai and his wife was also kind enough to extend their hospitality to us and have us over for lunch.

    This generous gift to Azai shows us that Rinpoche thinks about everyone and no one is missed. The well being of others is always a number one priority for Rinpoche. I rejoice for Azai and his wife.

  13. VInnie Tan on Sep 18, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Rinpoche’s kindness is never ending. Rinpoche is always giving people things that he can, helping them to improve the things around them. Rinpoche may even get things for people because he knows they really like it but do not have the money to buy them, he would give items to them that they want.

    Rinpoche’s love and kindness do not only stop at people or his students, but it extends to all that he see.

  14. Patsy on Jul 4, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Rinpoche compassion and concern for the welfare of others is boundless. Not only providing them with a stable and safe home, Rinpoche personally supervised the installation of this new home for Azai and Chu Chu. This is true compassion through action. May we be able to follow our beloved Guru’s footsteps.

  15. Lucas Roth on Jul 4, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    thank you Rinpoche for pulling off yet another super caring deed. i have been to Azai’s new house when i was helping out at KFR and it is really cool. I hope KFR is fully finished soon so Rinpoche can live there in peace.

  16. Venix on Dec 15, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,

    You are very caring and generous . Azai and family is glad and lucky to meet you. You have brought them a wonderful and warm shelter.
    I will take you as my role mode, Rinpoche. Thanks.

    Regards,
    Venix

  17. mitra on Dec 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Rinpoche always think of the welfare of other people. Rinpoche is always caring and kind no matter where they are from.1000 thank you rinpoche.

  18. So Kin Hoe on Dec 11, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    The moment Rinpoche saw Azai and his wife lived without basic necessities, there was no second thought from Rinpoche except building a new home for Azai and his wife. How fortunate we are to have a kind and compassionate Guru like Rinpoche.

  19. Girlie Ooi on Dec 10, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Ajai and his wife can count their blessings that Rinpoche came into their lives. Now they have a home to retire to at the end of a hard day’s work.

  20. Henry Ooi on Dec 8, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Azai and wife work hard on KFR and are a pleasant couple. They will be happy to go home after a hard day’s work to a place they can now call home. A real home.

  21. Lucas Roth on Dec 4, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche truly is a wonderful person, he is so generous, kind hearted, wise and so much more. I really pray that Rinpoche has a very long life. 😀

  22. adelinewoon on Nov 25, 2012 at 1:58 am

    If you ever doubt hard work and sincerity, this has clearly shown it works! Karma works, we do create all causes for all effects to happen to us. Azai works tirelessly at KFR, always ready to help, to teach, to just do anything. I personally feel very grateful to have him on board with us. He is definitely an asset to us. Rinpoche had always remind us to be grateful, compassionate, carrying, thankful for everything help we have received, people who had benefited us, always ready to help and be kind to repay all the kindness. Rinpoche has shown us one of the ways we can repay others kindness. Yes, Azai is hired to work with us, but he is also deserves to be protected from harm and sleep soundly. Rinpoche do love Kecharians very very much, he makes sure they are well taken care of physically and spiritually. Where can you find an ’employer’ like this?

  23. Sock Wan on Nov 24, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Rinpoche personally supervised the works and made sure everything including cookery was arranged for Ajai. Rinpoche’s care does not limit to only Kecharians but to people of other religion too.

    Rinpoche is setting an example for us to learn how to be caring and compassionate.

  24. Paul Yap on Nov 24, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    We are very grateful to Rinpoche, he has been always taking care everyone around him, students, friends, even strangers and homeless people on the street. Malaysian are truly blessed to have such a kind and compassion Bodhisattva.

  25. lucy yap on Nov 24, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    Rinpoche is authentically a very compassionate person who is filled with kindness towards others.Rinpoche don’t just help within his comfort zone,but am willing to make sacrifices and feels the others pain as if is his own.
    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our Guru.May Rinpoche be healthy always.

  26. Carmen K. on Nov 24, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Throughout the construction of Azai’s place, I was there. From the cementing of the floor, to the size of the cabins, to the awning, kitchen and plants, Rinpoche was very concerned and was only driven by the motivation that Azai and Chu Chu would have a place they can call home..and they were very touched and loved it.

    Even after everything was done, Rinpoche wanted to make sure they were okay. Rinpoche bought crockeries, kitchen supplies and utensils for them to cook so that they would always be fed and have a proper kitchen to go to.

    Such is the kindness and care of a true Boddhisattva. Giving and lessening the suffering of others WITHOUT agenda. Even to have met the Dharma at this age and time is a fortune for us, what more having a living Boddhisattva right next to us to guide us.

    Carmen.

  27. bengkooi on Nov 24, 2012 at 2:37 am

    It is said that a high lama can be recognised by his deeds. It is also said that everywhere a high lama goes, the sentient beings around him will always be better off, as a high lama’s only purpose is to benefit those around him.

    In the case of Ajai’s house, we can see clearly that Rinpoche went out of his way to ensure Ajai and his wife were comfortable, safe, and secure. Rinpoche compassionately wanted to ensure that this couple who work so hard on our forest retreat land have a home to call their own.

    We can only try to follow in our guru’s footsteps.

  28. lewkwanleng on Nov 24, 2012 at 2:05 am

    Many of the times, we have conditions when it comes to giving, and many of the times, we want to see how much return I can get before giving. What I learn from what Rinpoche did for our caretaker Azai, really show me what it means by giving without condition and genuine care.

    On the few occasions I worked with Azai, he works really hard and never complains. He has worked more than 36 hours straight without sleep just because he wanted to complete a task. We are so fortunate to have such a caring caretaker in our blessed land.

  29. Erickksiow on Nov 24, 2012 at 1:49 am

    Rinpoche did taking care everyone of us in Kechara. Rinpoche always showed his Compassionate heart, it’s very great to met Rinpoche and following his foot steps.

    Thank You Seng Piao.

  30. Karen Chong on Nov 23, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    詹仁波切的无私付出是绝对值得我们去学习,然后付诸于行动的。我们往往因为存有私心而不能100%地为他人付出, 这就是为什么我们必须先得学习宽容,接受,放下,然后无畏地付出于他人。阿Zai与妻子之前简陋的住处看了令人心酸,由于他们俩刻苦耐劳地为我们建设KFR, 现在他们也因种下了善因,有了自己一个舒适的家, 我为他们感到欣慰。

  31. abby F on Nov 22, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Rinpoche personally get involved and take care of everything in the whole process…this is how much Rinpoche cares for Azai and his wife, and this shows how much compassion Rinpoche has.

    Normally, we are willing to help, but how much time, energy and even money we willing to ‘sacrifice’ to help, this is always another question. But even though Rinpoche has tight schedule, but Rinpoche planned and watched the whole construction just to present Azai and his wife a good proper home.

    This is how much Rinpoche cares for others. Rinpoche even planned for the construction and I don’t think that Rinpoche learn about construction during His school time. But of true care and compassion, Rinpoche did it.

  32. Irene Lim on Nov 22, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Compassion in action!

  33. Judy on Nov 22, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Azai and his wife are so blessed to have met Rinpoche. It is perhaps the first time they both experienced this kindness. It humbles us to see Rinpoche in action, paying attention meticulously to all details of the construction of Azai’s new home. Thank you for sharing with us Seng Peow.

  34. Datuk May on Nov 22, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    What we see is the gift of shelter for Azai and his wife Cucu but this is more than a material gift. I like what Seng Piow mentioned, this is a gift of “FEARLESSNESS” from weather conditions, wild animals, insects etc. It must be such a wonderful state of mind to be in.

    Rinpoche has created a beautiful home for Azai. For his friend’s Rinpoche also did much to provide them with contract work at KFR to earn a better livelihood.

  35. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 21, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Rinpoche kindness is boundless especially to those that work hard for him. Whether they are workers in Nepal, Thailand or even in Malaysia Rinpoche kindness has touched many of these people. Azai Is a swell, strong and very likeable chap from Indonesia.

  36. Martin on Nov 21, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    It is not only the giving but also the manner and in which the giving was being done. Rinpoche not only made sure that Azai and his wife had a secure roof over their heads but Rinpoche also personally planned the project, supervised the work and installation, bought things for the new home such as beds, storage space, kitchen equipment and utensils as well as plants. The things that Rinpoche offered were things Rinpoche himself would use, or better. For example, Rinpoche’s own toilet is a mere cubicle measuring 5 feet by 5 feet and yet Azai’s toilet is double that size. Why? So that the discomfort Rinpoche experiences daily does not befall another.

    Even for Azai’s dogs, Rinpoche made sure that they get proper shelter, protection from wild animals and even to the point of ensuring that the flooring has proper water run-off so that the dogs will not suffer fungus on their paws from having to stand on wet floor.

    What strikes me is how there is zero expectations of anything in return and absolutely no discrimination in the way Rinpoche gives. Azai and his wife are not members of Kechara nor are they Buddhists or students of Rinpoche. This is giving out of kindness in its purest form.

    But it is not only Azai and his wife who benefitted from this kindness but also many Kechara volunteers who participated in this commendable act of giving. They too earned tremendous merits by selflessly labouring for the benefit of others.

    Rinpoche giving Azai and his wife a good home is a reflection of what Kechara Forrest Retreat is about – the selfless giving of oneself so that others may come to know and benefit from the Dharma.

  37. Rine on Nov 21, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Rinpoche, I love you. You are so special .

  38. Davin on Nov 20, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Rinpoche is always very concerned for others. Rinpoche does so much and show us how much he cares. Azai is very fortunate to have met Rinpoche and now he and his wife live in the new house that Rinpoche built for them. Rejoice for Azai and his wife. How fortunate that we have a Guru like this.
    Thank you Rinpoche!

  39. Tat Ming on Nov 20, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    If we have not seen it with our very own eyes Azai’s original home, we wouldn’t have believed that they had stayed there! That’s how bad the living conditions that Azai and his wife had been through. Unless we have experienced similar conditions, we cannot realise the poverty, pains and hardships Azai and his wife had experienced in their lives prior to meeting Tsem Rinpoche.

    There are many ways to benefit others and we should help others whenever there is an opportunity. And we should help in the way we could possibly can. Rinpoche showed us that with the care and help that was extended to Azai and his wife, it would make a huge difference in their lives. Now Azai and his wife can sleep comfortably in their new home without worrying that rain and wind will blow away their roof!

    When we see Azai and his wife’s smiling faces, we realise that two more people have become happier in their lives. Azai and his wife’s lives have improved tremendously due to the compassionate deed of Tsem Rinpoche.

  40. Cynthia Ng on Nov 20, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    [真心对待]是每个人都晓得的一回事,但是否能够做到嘴说的和行为上一致的话那真的没有多少人能做得到。

    詹杜固仁波切是我看到从一而终的真心付出对待每个人,而且是不求回报。仁波切制造一个简单温暖的家对Azai和妻子来说是天大的欣慰,为Azai夫妇俩的付出犹如给他俩安下定心丸,对他们的照顾是从内在到外在都顾及到犹如一家人,都对他们提供最好的环境,让他们感受到家的温暖。

    有幸遇到真心付出而且不求回报的人犹如海里捞针,真替他们感到随喜能够遇到一位让他们安心的人!

  41. Sofi on Nov 20, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Rinpoche really showed me that to help means going all the way, no waiting nor leaving it to others to do so. Both Azai n wife are truly blessed by Rinpoche’s compassion n kindness. Kudos also to all volunteers involved!

  42. May Ong on Nov 20, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Kindness holds no barriers for Tsem Rinpoche. His practice of generosity is further actualized by this concrete example of offering good accommodation to Azai and his wife, better than his own. A true Bodhisattva indeed, is Tsem Rinpoche.

  43. Felix Kong on Nov 20, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    帮助有需要的人未必只是 讲 和 捐钱。 如果能够像 Rinpoche 真心付出自己 时间 和 体力 来帮助一个人,那真的是 功德无量。

  44. Wah Ying on Nov 20, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Many have seen Rinpoche personally supervised the works of Azai’s house construction works, everyone is important to Rinpoche. I have seen the makeshift shed Azai and wife previously stayed in, and I should not have complained with what I have, at the same time if possible give those who lack of it with their needs.

    A guru not only gives fearlessness from harm by wild animals or thunderstorms, he/she gives also peace of mind, teaching the secret to liberate ourselves. And Rinpoche showed by actions to let us learn from there.

  45. HelenaC on Nov 20, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Rinpoche is truly an inspiration for us. We must practice compassion and generosity. To take is always easy then to give, Rinpoche shows us the happiness of giving is truly deep within. Think of people like us, have a comfortable home and place to work and some of us are still have tons of complains. By looking at the place that Azai and his wife staying really make us feel ashame that what more do we need besides being fortunate. We must appreciate what we have and stop complaining. Thank you Rinpoche whom staying there and do all the inspection for Azai’s house, now they have a place called HOME! 🙂

  46. Uncle Eddie on Nov 20, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    I believe Rinpoche recognises Azai and his wife’s desires for happiness and their rights to obtain it – and automactically feels an empathy of closeness for them. With Rinpoche’s sense of ‘Universal Altruism’, he develops a deep feeling of responsibilty for others in accord with his accustomed mind, the great wish to help them to overcome their staying problems. To Rinpoche, such a wish is not selective, but it applies equally to all, especially those who has make their contribution to help him in his spiritual works and projects such as this in benefiting others. This I believe Rinpoche has been trying to teach us all the time, what true compassion really means, thanks to our sharing and caring guru.

  47. Janice Kwok on Nov 20, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Azai and his wife must have many merits to have met w Rinpoche and receive Rinpoche’s love and kindness. This is an example of how we must do whatever we can to generate as many merits as we can and do all we can in this lifetime. Azai and his wife is also v lucky to be able to do work in KFR that will benefit many in the future. Rinpoche’s compassion and kindness cuts across all races and boundaries. Thank you Rinpoche _/|\_

  48. Deborah on Nov 20, 2012 at 9:24 am

    It is very fortunate to meet Rinpoche in person and experience his kindness. This is one of many examples of the care he shows to people.

  49. Elsie on Nov 20, 2012 at 7:55 am

    Rinpoche’s kindness touches many hearts and always giving unconditionally. Azai is very very fortunate to meet Rinpoche and can now leave in peace away from fear. I am very happy for Azai and his wife. I hope many of us can be contented with what we have and reach out to many needy people and families out there. Rinpoche didnt just ordered it to be built but HE personally supervised and planned for it.

    This really touches my heart MY LAMA is not just a person who sits on the throne and give teachings. He is giving teachings by examples and walk the talk. _/\_ .

  50. James Long on Nov 20, 2012 at 3:22 am

    当我们说我们已经做了那么多好事,为什么运气还是不够好,想想看我们自己是不是真的全心全意的完全帮助一个人,甚至这一个人和我们不是那么的亲近,熟悉。我们对别人好是有选择性的。如果真能做到无私的爱,相信我们会更快乐。

  51. Milly on Nov 20, 2012 at 1:20 am

    Rinpoche is always very compassionate and concerned of each being’s welfare. Azai and wife are very helpful towards our work in KFR. They had helped us without agenda and its good that they now have a proper and safe house to live in. Rinpoche is so caring and even bought cooking utensils for them. May resources always be available for Rinpoche to continue to help other beings.

    As always, Rinpoche is always caring and kind no matter when, where, who or how. And Rinpoche personally spent time to make sure that everything is done to perfection shows how much He care for them.

    Its just amazing how Azai and his wife can stay in the make shift tent that I am sure many of us cannot. Many of us would be complaining including me. I am really happy for them. A beautiful home to go home to after a hard day work…

  53. Lim (KH JB) on Nov 19, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Rinpoche is truly Bodhisattva, Rinpoche gives the caretaker and his wife the fearlessness from sun, rain, the fear of their roof being blown away by thunderstorm (happened last month), and the fear of wild animals, like mosquitoes, snakes and wild animals.

    Rejoice for Azai and his wife, i would like to say “Ribuan Terima Kasih” to them also cause they really make their efforts to make sure Rinpoche and all Kechare are safe in KFR…

  54. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 19, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Rinpoche always think of the welfare of other people, and when he wanted to help someone, he will not just sit in the room and ask someone else to do it, he will walk out from the room, go to the field to monitor and make sure everything is done properly, because when Rinpoche want to give, he will give the best.

    Rinpoche is definitely the best example of compassion, and generousity.

    When we want to give, we won’t only give by mouth or wallet, but with our time and effort also.

  55. Sheryl KH (JB) on Nov 19, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Very fortunate of Azai to have met Rinpoche, and with this, his life has changed for the better.

    From having to live in a place exposed to the open, where wild animals and insects are abound, Azai is now living in a place so big and comfortable.

    Azai can easily be a person be missed out. But Rinpoche sees him and provides for him many of life’s basics while having a big project both in hand and in mind.

    How fortunate that we have a Guru like this, so compassionate to all…

    A sacred pilgrimage site for 22 centuries, this Dambulla cave is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla is a World Heritage Site in 1991. King Valagamba of Anuradhapura in the first century built a temple in thankful worship. Located in central Sri Lanka, the Dambulla Cave Temple is a living Buddhist site that is focused on a series of five cave shrines.The place is worth a visit though, just for the stunning sculptures and paintings in this historical paradise. The site is remarkable in the Buddhist world with the continuous tradition of living Buddhist ritual practices and pilgrimage for more than two millennia. That’s interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada a book published Rinpoche autobiography, beautifully reflects his devotion to his teachers and the practices. Zasep Rinpoche points out, the practice of Dorje Shugden officially started in the Sakya school before it was embraced by the Gelugpas. Interestingly, this book also mentioned the great deeds of Dorje Shugden and how much this Dharma Protector has helped the Tibetan people as well and Tibetan Buddhism too.Zasep Rinpoche have touched the hearts of everyone he has encountered. Interesting read one must not missed as it is a true story of an incredible Tibetan Buddhist scholar and lama’s journey.

    As prophesies by Shakyamuni Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa is an emanation of the Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, and saint who lived in Tibet. His practice will instill deep wisdom and confers great blessing upon us. His pure teachings and activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. With the establishment of the Gelug monastery which survives to this day. Lama Tsongkhapa, considered one of the greatest Buddhist masters and philosophers of all time. There many benefits that arise from Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Merely by reciting Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra known as Migtsema mantra. is indeed very beneficial for everyone of us. We are so fortunate to learn and practices from our Guru.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great Master.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition centuries ago and only later widely practised in Gelugpa tradition. All these was stated by H.H Trijang Rinpoche in his work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. The throne holder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya. The practice of this Dharma Protector was later passed to his son the 31st Sakya Trizin Kunga Lodro who was believed to be the emanation of Dorje Shugden himself. Interesting facts. He even composed a Dorje Shugden prayer or Kangsol to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden. The prayer has since been well known and it is used to this day. The 39th Sakya throneholder Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen who also practised Dorje Shugden and praised Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Not only one but three Sakya Trizins who relied on Dorje Shugden and they referred to him as an enlightened being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing so as more and more practitioners know the truth and only truth that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being

Buddhism is one of the fastest growing religions in the west and have spreading further , all thanks to those highly lamas such as Gaden Tripas, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Wangyal, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin, Geshe Rabten, and so forth. Many people more people are becoming more aware of Buddhism and finding it a suitable way of life and religion. With the great spread of Buddhism, many people had benefitted with the practice as it emphasized individuals’ path to enlightenment and salvation, which could be attained in this life.

    The Legend of the Mermaid is well known and told with different forms and endings in all the oral tradition of peoples linked to the sea. It was rumored that the mermaid has a magical treasure. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Interesting read mermaids were natural beings who, like fairies, who had magical and prophetic powers. We usually see it as in movie whether it do really exists no one have really seen it nowadays. While there is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. They depicted in operas, paintings, books and live-action films.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Trance is a state of semi-consciousness in which a person is not self-aware. The person is in a deep state of distraction by some inner turmoil or some outer mental influence. Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. Listening the video tells us more about trance. Interesting to know, but we should not get involve in trances as advice. Its better get involve in Dharma practice and have our mind transform.

    Observe good faith and justice toward everyone nor matter what religion and faith, regardless of race and religion creates peace and harmony . Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance. Living our lives selflessly, treating others with respect, sharing the extra that comes to us with others who have been short-changed.
    Reading our Guru’s tweets tells us a thousand words, on cultivating harmony ,understanding and acceptance in our daily life.
    May Rinpoche’s wisdom inspire us all to contribute to a better world

    Interesting read of a great Tibetan spiritual leader, Buddhist scholar and the fourth of the Five Sakya Forefathers. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen founded the Sakya school and one of Tibet’s most learned sages in Tibet, India, Mongolia and China. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen have been an emanation of Manjusri, the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddha. Wow…… proficient in the five great sciences of Buddhist philosophy, medicine, grammar, dialectics and sacred Sanskrit literature.
    He was even talented in minor sciences of rhetoric, synonymies, poetry, music, dancing and astrology. Sakya Paṇḍita was a religious hierarch by birth. Sakya Pandita experienced an extraordinary teaching in his dreams and had many clairvoyant and clear dreams.
    Interesting read of the biography of a great Lama’s spiritual journey.

    Studies show that light pollution is also impacting animal behaviours, such as migration patterns, wake-sleep habits, and habitat formation. Noise is a source of stress. It triggers reactions in the body, light pollution can alter behaviours, sound and light affect the environment and also our daily lives. With their expertise, a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, did an enlightening experiment to determine where the surrounding environment having negatives energy. All through the colour generated in the sparks which confirms the presence of supernatural beings.I do believe those unseen beings do exist.

    Beautiful pictures paints a thousands words of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche. Those rare pictures shared ultimate sophistication of the relationship between the two great leaders.
    Back in the 20th century Jawaharlal Nehru an Indian anti-colonial nationalist, statesman, secular humanist, social democrat was very kind to receive them both. Looking at the rare pictures says all.
    Its such awesome watching the rare video of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche visiting India together. Visiting sacred places Buddhist sites of India together, and even having state dinner .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    nspiring read of the power sacred feminine Maha Pajapati Gotami, founder of the Order of Nuns. She was the foster-mother, step-mother and maternal aunt of the Buddha. In Buddhist tradition, she was the first woman to seek ordination for women, which she did from Gautama Buddha directly, and she became the first bhikkhuni.
    Mahapajapati lived to be around 120 years old. Having such an eminent position in the sangha, she would have had hundreds of nuns under her care, helping them realize the Truth. Perplexingly, the Buddha continued to have doubts about admitting women into the women’s order right up until his death. Mahapajapati had played an important role preserving the dharma taught by Buddha Shakyamuni.
    Truly inspired by Mahaprajapati Gotami’s story.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

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.
    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

It's more auspicious this year as Losar and the Chinese New Year begin on the same date, 10th Feb, 2024. Back in Penang, our Kechara members came together to decorate the altar with abundance offerings for Dorje Shugden puja @3pm. Kechara Penang Study Group by Jacinta.
