Spontaneously thinking of others… | 无时无刻地在为他人着想……

(By Pastor Loh Seng Piow)

Last night after dinner, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche took a stroll from inside Kechara Forest Retreat to the entrance and saw this van parked at the entrance selling groceries and toiletries, so Rinpoche asked how many foreign workers were there in Kechara Forest Retreat, and bought 16 sets of gloves, shampoo, soap, shaving razor, eggs, peanuts etc. to be given to the workers. Rinpoche always has others’ welfare in His mind, even if He has never met them before. The interests of others always arise in His mind spontaneously.

昨天晚餐后,尊贵的詹仁波切在克切拉禅修林漫步。在入口处附近,他看到一辆售卖杂货和洗浴用品的货车。仁波切于是问了身边的助理在禅修林工作的外籍劳工人数,并买了16套手套、洗发液、肥皂、剃须刀、鸡蛋、花生等,送给工人们。仁波切时常都把他人的福利放在心里,即使他跟他们素未谋面。仁波切时时刻刻都在为他人着想。

    Rinpoche has given them love and care that least likely to get as foreigners.

    感恩仁波切的开示与教诲

    仁波切从来没有忘记我们,时时惦念着我们及一切众生,然而身为弟子的我们却时常的,忘记了我们的上师

    祈愿我们能够更精进的学习佛法,拖过转化我们的心识,把佛法实践在我们的生活当中,仁波切总是用他身与力行的方式向我们传达佛法,而身为弟子的我们,除了无限的感恩,就应该的,同样的,学习帮助与关爱我们身边的所有的人,包括我们爱的,我们恨的,我们埋怨的,我们都应该帮助与关爱他们,为什么? 因为在尊贵与大爱的仁波切眼中,一切众生都值得他关爱,并传递佛法给他们,那么身为弟子的我们还怎能够有分别心呢!

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

  3. Wylfred Ng on Oct 27, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    感谢仁波切的分享。 仁波切对于每个人都是公平的,因为众生平等。 这帮工人离乡背井来到马来西亚工作,也许也没得到很好的福利,他们比我们更需要帮忙。
    祈愿他们会因为在仁波切的庇佑和建造克切拉禅修林的功德可以让他们未来的每一世都可以得到佛法的加持,有机会遇到佛法和修习佛法。

    Wow!! Rinpoche really always thinks a lot about others.

    Rinpoche is kind in many ways. For example he bought things from the man outside the entrance of kechara forest retreat. Rinpoche also bought all the packet tissues from a man in brickfields so that he can get home early to have a rest and to be with the family. Rinpoche is always very considerate and compassionate to others. He offers help unconditionally.

    Rinpoche has assisted uncountable number of people wherever he went and whenever he saw people who need help.

  5. Li Kheng on Mar 23, 2013 at 1:55 am

    We often forget how much care matters.

    These young men left their families to work hard in a foreign land where they are treated as “different”. For these young individuals to receive kindness is most refreshing.

    As I have the opportunity to observe their work daily in KFR, I have the audacity to say that this care from Rinpoche has fueled their sense of responsibility towards their work in KFR. Trust me when I say that payment of salary is not enough a drive to develop responsibility towards one’s work.

    Not only did Rinpoche’s kindness touch the workers in KFR, it also helped the elderly gentleman who had to work in the middle of the night when it was raining quite heavily to collect some income and, perhaps, go home earlier, away from the rain to the warmth of his family.

  6. mitra on Mar 17, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    Thank for Seng Piow sharing this article. Rinpoche is always so loving and caring. He not only cares for people who he knows, he also cares a lot for people he doesn’t know at all.thank you rinpoche so much for love care. we very lucky to have rinpoche thank you agen rinpoche.

  7. henry ooi on Mar 15, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Rinpocheś kindness, care and love to all comes naturally from Rinpocheś compassion. Rinpocheś compassion is second nature and it is spontaneous, I and many others in Kechara have seen it with our own eyes. Rinpoche always teaches: Give and never expect anything in return, not even a ¨Thank you.¨

  8. William on Mar 9, 2013 at 8:47 am

    Rinpoche is always caring in all aspects, no matter who and where, Rinpoche will help and give to others. In the least expected, or at least I do not expect it, Rinpoche will show his care in the most open and generous ways. In this case, the workers in KFR. Thank you RInpoche for showing me that giving is boundless and has no ending.

  9. Sean Wang on Mar 8, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Rinpoche always cares for every sentient being, even if they have never met. I am always a receiver of Rinpoche’s love and Rinpoche always shows that he is a genuine human being that is void from unnecessary samsaric agendas.

  10. Sock Wan on Mar 8, 2013 at 8:56 am

    Rinpoche is always so loving and caring. He not only cares for people who he knows, he also cares a lot for people he doesn’t know at all. He always makes sure we are okay. Not only to human, Rinpoche’s love extend to animals also. He is the perfect example of how a loving person is. If everyone start giving a little, our lives will become better and better.

  11. Su Ming on Mar 7, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    As far as I can recall since I joined the Kechara Organisation 4 years ago, this is like the 1000th or more times Rinpoche has been spontaneously giving and buying things for staff/people Rinpoche does not even know or come into contact with.

    I work closely with Rinpoche, I have seen so many aspects of Rinpoche which is consistent. I have also seen when others criticize and complain about Rinpoche action which most do not see the actions of Rinpoche and how much he does everyday behind the scenes.

    Therefore, to me I have stop judging people. Rinpoche has taught me that before I judge, look at the result the person has produced, look at his surrounding and people they attract. I have seen how wrongly Rinpoche has been judged and I would not want this to happen to Rinpoche.

  12. Han on Mar 7, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    “if I can never repay this kindness I’ve received, then the least I can do is to appreciate and have great gratitude towards the one person that have seen more in me than anyone has ever did.”
    What Sarah Yap commented was so so true, not only that we must always show gratitude towards Rinpoche, in order to repay Rinpoche’s kindness, we must always remember to repay gratitude to every person that help us , and also be kind to others and to animals.

    Best offering to our guru is the MIND TRANSFORMATION, I always keep this in mind and working towards this as my ultimate goal.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always taking care of everyone. Showing compassion through action !

    Dearest Tenzin: Please accept the following channeled transcript of Lobsang Namgyal. It has been approved as very probable to be authentic by Tenzin Bob Thurman. I would appreciate so much if you could share the words of this Tibetan. http://yourlettersfromheaven.com/clairvoyant/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Lobsan-Namgal-Transcription-edited.pdf

  14. Martin on Mar 6, 2013 at 5:40 am

    The difference Rinpoche and us, is that Rinpoche’s kindness radar is always on and scans boundlessly. To Rinpoche, everyone is important and deserving of kindness regardless of who they are and what form they take. Most of the time, there is no way for recipients of Rinpoche’s kindness to return in kind. The student of Rinpoche all experience this.

    Usually people give gifts only on “special” days and they pay special attention on choosing gifts to give to people that they can benefit from but this is not the case here. How many times have we all driven passed those whom we can be kind to, but it never occurred for us to, because we are so preoccupied with our own thoughts.

    What us very heart warming is that Rinpoche personally gets involved in the choosing and buying of these things. Kindness goes all the way here. This also reminds me of the time when Rinpoche walked into a restaurant supposed for dinner and ended up buying all the live fishes in the tank and mobilized students to release them back into their natural habitat.

  15. Felix Kong on Mar 5, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Rinpoche is so kindness and compassion . Always think and help other peoples, we are so fortunate that have caring and blessing from Rinpoche . I’m really appreciate , thank you Rinpoche .

  16. uncle eddie on Mar 5, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    As our Guru, “Dharma is always in Rinpoche, and Rinpoche is Dharma.”
    Rinpoche has once said that if we have experienced some sort of compassion, care and concern for others arisen from practice, we will never feel hesistant to help others. We will see our lives joyfully and without effort, bring other people’s happiness that’s immediate and also lasts, and such action/practice automactically makes our mind becomes lighter. From the contemplation of giving hope, kindness, shelter and good purposes to others, our awareness arise. From this, we will automatically engage our body, speech and mind for others’ happiness and comfort in this life, hoping to be possibly extended bigger and bigger into future lives too! THANK YOU, Seng Piow for the sharing.

  17. KYC on Mar 4, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Generosity is the first paramita. Rinpoche has always taught us to be generous, to be caring and give, not only materially, but also mentally and emotionally. When we give, we overcome outer and inner miserliness.

  18. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    Whenever I read story like this, it never fails to touch my heart deeply. Yes, very simple action and yet it comes from true concerns which I nowadays find so hard to find.

    For all of us who live in the cities, we have endless things to busy about. And even when we seems to have finished what we need to do for the day, we cannot rest our minds, we have to be on constant ‘worry’ mode because we are afraid to become losers.

    How many people will stop to care for others? I wonder.

    All people who have their paths crossed with Tsem Rinpoche are blessed. Rinpoche always gives, this is what I always see.

  19. Cliff on Mar 4, 2013 at 9:42 pm

    Rinpoche’s compassion for others goes beyond any normal human being. Rinpoche has everyone on his mind and always wants to care for them and see them grow. Whether they are close to Rinpoche or a stranger, Rinpoche knows how and finds the best way to benefit that person. The workers are very lucky and fortunate to get the blessings from the things Rinpoche bought for them and I’m sure it’ll benefit them greatly.

    Since I was young Rinpoche has always taken care of me, whether directly or indirectly through my family, Rinpoche has always been there for me and my family. Bringing me close to the dharma, teaching me values, being a good person, caring for others, loving my family, etc. I am forever grateful for Rinpoche taking care of me.

  20. Julia Tan on Mar 4, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Rinpoche always think of benefiting others. Everyone in Kechara received and experienced Rinpoche’s unconditional love and care one way or another. Rinpoche always make sure everyone benefited in the process of giving. In this case, the store owner were very happy to closed some business in the rainy evening and the workers received the food and sundry items the next day so that they could have new gloves, new clothes, eggs and shampoo to use. We as Rinpoche’s students learned how Rinpoche care about others. Rinpoche never expected any return from them but to make sure people around Him are ok.

    Rinpoche’s care and love can be very special and strange! After being Rinpoche’s students for many years, I realized that Rinpohe’s love can be roughful and fierce sometime which we may not understand at that moment but we learned later that Rinpoche uses many ways to love a person or His students according to what this person need at that time. Rinpoche do not care about how people think about Him cause deep inside our Guru’s heart, He only care and make sure we all ok always.

  21. Pastor Chia on Mar 4, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Thank for Seng Piow sharing this article. Yes,Rinpoche always show his care and love to people around him. He always concern others need more than himself. This has been consistent for so many years and since his young when he practice dharma. Basically when someone suffering, rinpoche can’t stand and look when he saw someone is suffering. Beside that, Rinpoche always recuse and help animal at the street.

  22. Andrew Boon on Mar 4, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    This was a truly wonderful evening. I was privileged to be one of the students that was with Rinpoche then. It’s these private moments that are very special!

    What started as a quiet stroll down, what is to be called the Meditation Path of KFR (Kechara Forest Retreat), to the front of the property where the van was parked became a shopping extravaganza!

    When we started our stroll it had begun to drizzle. It was a cooling but dark night. SP and I had to use the torchlight function of our phones to light our way. Rinpoche was sharing stories of his time in India and how walking the path and the darkness reminded him of Mundgod and how he loved the monasteries.

    When we got to the entrance where we the van was, Rinpoche’s immediate thought was to get necessities for the foreign workers that are working very hard on the land. Rinpoche mentioned they work hard and they do not have much and are away from their families.

    Literally come rain or shine, Rinpoche constantly has other’s interests and well being at heart. I have to pinch myself sometimes at how lucky and blessed I am to be privy to such compassion and love.

    As I always say, if loving your ‘job’ makes it less of a ‘job’ and more of a passion. I reckon I have the greatest passion in this world!!!

  23. HelenaC on Mar 4, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    Rinpoche is always caring and generous to everyone, it is beautiful that Rinpoche have bought the workers the things that they will need to use as they leave their home and came far to Malaysia and work, their family will wish they are well taking good care of too 🙂
    Thank you Rinpoche 🙂

  24. Louise Lee on Mar 3, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    有一种爱, 是无所不在的! 无论你到那里, 他都会让你感受到。

    • June Kang on Mar 6, 2013 at 10:11 pm

      是的, 这种爱是真真实实在我们的眼前,我们最敬爱的上师詹杜固仁波切,是我们学习的榜样。

  25. Bryan Ho on Mar 3, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    Rinpoche’s style of care is very extraordinary, I could said Rinpoche is the kindest person that I have ever met. In Buddhism, generosity/giving is one of the main practice, and Rinpoche really practice it by body speech and mind.

    Few years back when a group of us was in Thailand doing some projects, Rinpoche came across this old lady who sell lottery for living, Rinpoche purchase all her tickets that night. Most of the people buying lottery ticket and hoping earning some extra cash, but Rinpoche purchased all her ticket so she can have a full meal and go back and rest early. This is that kind of care that Rinpoche show us.

    This is just one of the example out of many, Rinpoche will not care about color, age, race, but Rinpoche will help whoever need help. Many of us have received direct or indirectly help from Rinpoche.

    But we must not stop there, beside inspired by Rinpoche, we must also transform it into action, can we start to care and love stranger beside us ? It’s time for us to learn and practice

  26. Low ksjb on Mar 3, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.We always believe that our Rinpoche is a kind and generous person.In giving sincerely before being ask is a true act of generosity through the compassion for others.Our Rinpoche was rewarding all those who is going to make the KFR manifest soon through their contribution of hard work day after day until the work is done,he never forget anyone who contribute to KFR.

  27. AdelineTan on Mar 3, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Rinpoche’s generosity and always helping people in need is well known to all the people who know Him. In this case, not only the workers in Kfr benefited from Rinpoche, this van salesman also benefited from the sales he got from Rinpoche as this is his livelihood. Thank you Seng Piow for posting this article.

  28. Lim Han Nee on Mar 3, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this with us. As always,even in the darkness of the night in a normally deserted place like the entrance to KFR, Rinpoche’s spontaneity in showing love and compassion clicks in. He chances upon a van selling groceries and toiletries and gives us a teaching on equal love for all – friends and strangers.

    Rinpoche’s giving is boundless, not only in material things as in this instance, but also in the giving of the priceless Dharma. Here, on the blog for instance,his Dharma teaching is transmitted non-stop and is just a click away for anyone anywhere in the world.

    Here, on the blog, Rinpoche gives us the Dharma to transform us into compassionate caring beings towards all sentient beings, both seen and unseen. This is the only way to go to reach peace and ultimate happiness. Yet our lazy unawakened minds are still trapped in our zones of comfort and ease.

  29. patsy on Mar 3, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    Rinpoche is a compassionate Lama who always put others interest and welfare at heart. He always takes care of his students and all those you need help. Rinpoche is one who embodies “Compassion through action”.

  30. Erickksiow on Mar 3, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Rinpoche did showed us his care and love to students and friends. Respect Rinpoche so much.

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  31. June Tang(KHJB) on Mar 3, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Rinpoche is very compassionate and kindness to others !! Rinpoche show care and love in actions but not in words !!We are so fortunate to meet Rinpoche in our lives,We should repay his kindness through practicing dharma and benefit more others !!

  32. tenzin llhamo on Mar 3, 2013 at 11:56 am

    There is no doubt at all that Rinpoche is the kindest, most generous and most caring person I have ever known. Never a minute go by that Rinpoche is not thinking of who to help and benefit.
    My family have personally receive many many gifts from Rinpoche! There is nothing that Rinpoche wants in return except for us to grow spiritually because in the end Rinpoche wants us to be happy and for Him to know that we will be okay. Rinpoche gives so much be it materialistically or mentally. But most of all, thank you so much Rinpoche for the Dharma for it is the best gift in the world!

  33. Albert Ratchaga on Mar 3, 2013 at 11:23 am

    In Rinpoche’s mind, everyone are as important, he will never leave someone to be there to suffers, Rinpoche will always find ways to bring that person out from that suffering.

    to give, we must know what is suitable and practical to that person and not simply buy something to give, that is care, a gift should be able to help that person and not something that he will throw aside when he goes back.

    When Rinpoche buy gift to a person, he will always get things that is needed instead of wanted. Wanting something is based on our desire, but needing it is something necessity in our daily life.

  34. Lim (KH JB) on Mar 3, 2013 at 4:55 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for always care and love no whether who u are, where u from…

    Rinpoche is showing us a true compassion from an enlighten Guru…

    Thanks for all foreign workers that work so hard in KFR…

  35. philyong on Mar 3, 2013 at 2:46 am

    Rinpoche has never met these workers before yet he cares for them so much. Rinpoche does this on a daily basis. Whenever he sees an opportunity to provide for others, he would do so immediately with no qualms at all.

    I myself received my first gifts from Rinpoche even before we met. All I did was send a thank you message via email to Rinpoche for having the blog which is so rich in knowledge and he so kindly gave me tons of gifts!

    I still remember what I received from Rinpoche. A Lama Tsongkhapa statue, pendant, mala, cap, books and DVDs.

    That is a lot of items isnt it? What more I had never met Rinpoche prior to receiving these gifts.

    So yes I am a living proof of Rinpoche’s utmost kindness and compassion! It is because of Rinpoche that I have the Dharma with me now.

  36. Jessica Yap on Mar 3, 2013 at 2:44 am

    Rinpoche is always thinking of others first. Rinpoche’s kindness truly knows no bounds. Compassion at its best! Rinpoche leads by example and inspires other people like myself always! =)

    I have gotten my fair share of gifts from Rinpoche too. It is not the value of the gifts, but the thought of Rinpoche selecting the gifts for me left me speechless. I bet everyone whom received gifts from Rinpoche felt that way too. =)

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche!

  37. beatrix ooi on Mar 3, 2013 at 1:47 am

    Rinpoche has always been very kind and compassionate to others. These two qualities are proved by Rinpoche’s actions, not only words. There are people who keep bragging about themselves and never actually do anything. Rinpoche is definitely not that kind of person, Rinpoche will always do what He promised. I believe that more than half of the people who commented on this article have received(are receiving)a lot of care, love, gifts etc from Rinpoche, even I am. Rinpoche’s love and care to everyone are way beyond words, no words can describe them. Thank You Rinpoche for caring about our family. I will never forget that.
    Love, beatrix.

  38. tfreon on Mar 2, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Rinpoche always showed to us how to care. And, H.E is a person that care many peoples. Amazing in Kechara for instant, even Facebook and blogs, he will send gifts to the overseas people to show the love and care. I come across, some facebook fans and blogs’s fans say thank you to Rinpoche for the precious gift.

  39. edward ooi on Mar 2, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    Rinpoche is so generous and kind, Rinpoche never looked down on people and even to animals too. Rinpoche always give stuffs to peoples without hoping that one day Rinpoche will get something back. I wish that every living beings can be so generous and kind as Rinpoche.

  40. Joy on Mar 2, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    It is well known that whoever cross paths with Rinpoche, directly or indirectly will be benefited one way or another. Rinpoche just never seize to stop thinking about others… to stop being concern, considerate about how another being feels… and consistently helps people. This is the kind of kindness that is very rare because personally I have not met anyone this consistent. We have heard of stories of kind beings and saints… but actually have a “real” person in front of you showing you kindness, now this is something you do not often come across and when you do… you know this is definitely no ordinary person. That is why KFR is happening, that is why Dharma is spreading here in Malaysia!

    Rinpoche recently gave us a teaching on “reality” and from that teaching I can now understand how Rinpoche does this and how we can also do this if we abide in “reality” and not in the “past” or from “memory”. The thing is Rinpoche treats everyone fair because Rinpoche sees them as a “being” not from the perspective of what they are “labeled” and can treat or help them based on “NOW” who they are. That is why Rinpoche can help so many and more importantly how Rinpoche can forgive and will continue to help direct or indirectly. I hope one day soon we can all achieve this kind of compassion and view everything in “reality” and indeed even if we cannot totally do this now, we can try to “fake it” till we make it!

  41. Sharon Saw on Mar 2, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Rinpoche’s generosity knows no bounds – and it is not just the material but the spiritual which is a higher level. Rinpoche helps people on the street whom he will never see again so they cannot even repay Rinpoche because of the circumstances, yet Rinpoche gives in order to benefit that person at that time and i believe that Rinpoche is connecting with that being on an ultimate level by planting a Dharma seed. Rinpoche has said before that he doesn’t see us as an individual person but a mind, which is currently inhabiting this body but actually spans many eons of lives. If we have the good karma to be a student of Rinpoche, we can repay Rinpoche by the transformation of our minds. We should follow Rinpoche’s dharma teachings to become better people, and advance on our spiritual paths, because what Rinpoche really wants for all of us is to achieve liberation and ultimate happiness. Isn’t it ironic, that all Rinpoche wants is to benefit us ultimately? If we contemplate on this, we should without question or hesitation, follow Rinpoche’s example, be generous to others and develop the other of the 6 perfections which Rinpoche embodies.

  42. abby f on Mar 2, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    So kind of Rinpoche! When Rinpoche bought groceries from the van, Rinpoche gave business to the owner and at the same time the 16 workers get the groceries! The welfare of others always come first to Rinpoche. This shows that Rinpoche cares for everyone no matter who you are and where you from!! This is equanimity. Rinpoche bought the workers what they need in their daily lives. The thoughtfulness Rinpoche has derived in love and kindness.

  43. Paris on Mar 2, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Thank you for sharing this Seng Piow. It’s always so touching to hear of how much Rinpoche is invested in the welfare of others, like you said, even with people he has never even met. This story is only one such example of the spontaneity that Rinpoche exudes in giving to others. Every single moment that Rinpoche is out and about, he is ‘scheming’ of ways to help others – looking out for things that people would need for their work and livelihood, how to improve things for people’s living conditions, or even something frivolous and cute that would bring an extra bit of cheer to someone’s day.

    I don’t think there is a single person who has come into contact with Rinpoche who hasn’t been a fortunate recipient of this generosity. I have even seen how Rinpoche will go out of his way to buy extra snacks and drinks for sales assistants of shops, people he met only a few minutes ago – this is no other reason than because he understands how hard they work and how difficult it must be for them to be there are the shops all day, so he does something to bring a little cheer and help them get through the day.

  44. Girlie Ooi on Mar 2, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Rinpoche is always so generous to those around him. It does not matter whether you have met Rinpoche personally, His care goes out to you in more ways than one.

  45. David Lai on Mar 2, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Generosity is one of the very first quality of a Bodhisattva that we should all try to emulate. Rinpoche’s generosity surpasses all of ours very the simple fact that he does not need to think when he should be generous, he just is and that’s how he inspires people onto the Dharma.

    Rinpoche is very spontaneous when it comes to benefiting others but when it comes towards benefitting himself, he takes ages to come to a conclusion on whether a gift should be given and at the back of our minds, we almost always have an agenda. It is because generosity is the first qualities we should strive to emulate. Although not a spontaneous endeavor but a contrived one is better than not practicing and focussing on our miserliness – the cause to take rebirth in the 3 lower realms as a ghost.

  46. Lucas Roth on Mar 2, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Rinpoche values a life very much from a teeny tiny and to a huge rhino, any form of life Rinpoche values and we thank him for all his love he has given to us.it was very thoughtful of Rinpoche to think of the workers when he saw this van. i hope the workers have a good time enjoying their new stuf from His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

  47. sarahyap on Mar 2, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    There is not one person that Rinpoche has met that has never received Rinpoche’s kindness in whatever shape and form. It is through knowing how much Rinpoche help others, be it students that are close to Him or others that Rinpoche barely know personally, that I understand equanimity works on the highest level.

    As a student of Rinpoche, I too have received so much from Rinpoche… I have received countless of gifts from Rinpoche and the most precious of all, I have the great fortune to receive Dharma directly from my Guru. These touched me deeply as I have never received so much from one person, especially when the fact is, I’m a nobody.

    A few months ago a thought ran through my mind… how can I ever repay the kindness that I have received. We all know that the Dharma is the highest gift of all for it is through Dharma that we can realize and obtain lasting happiness… a gift that, sorry to say, even my parents are unable to give to me. And the truth is, no student can ever repay the kindness their Guru has shown to them. No amount of money, material gifts, nice words… can ever repay the kindness we receive from our Guru. Don’t you feel it strange, to have someone in your life that you can never repay their kindness no matter how hard you try?

    So I though… well, if I can never repay this kindness I’ve received, then the least I can do is to appreciate and have great gratitude towards the one person that have seen more in me than anyone has ever did.

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this wonderful story. It is great for everyone to know what Rinpoche does behind the scenes which often people are unaware of.

    Rinpoche is always so kind, generous and compassionate to all around him.

    Rinpoche made sure that the caretaker of KFR, Ah Ajai and his wife , has a comfortable home and proper shelter and facilities for the doggies ,before any of the projects started, He also ensured that all the construction workers on the site have plenty of water to drink and there is also lots of snacks and refreshments for them.

    Rinpoche is the personification of Loving Kindness, Generosity and Compassion.

    We are all so blessed and fortunate to have Rinpoche in our lives.

    With deepest gratitude , thank you so much Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche values every single person that comes across his life. Whether Rinpoche has heard about the person, read about it or in this case workers who are working for KFR, Rinpoche places his concern for the receiver’s benefit.

    I am also a receiver of Rinpoche’s love and care which enriches me by the day. Rinpoche walks the talk not only because he believes in the Dharma but the genuine care and concern comes from years of practice in which it becomes spontaneous. Rinpoche has given his life and chose to sacrifice his own interest for us here in Malaysia. It is only right we absorb the Dharma, transform and be an inspiration for many others to do the same.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Inspiring post of a soldier turned Buddhist monk living in remote raw Ural mountains of Russia . With little and much hardship , they never give up feeling happy with their struggles. They managed to build a spiritual community up in the remote mountains. Led by Mikhail Sannikov, now known as Lama Dokshit, a veteran of the USSR’s Afghanistan war . He established a monastery on an isolated mountaintop named Shad Tchup Ling, meaning “place of practice and realisation. The monastery is visited by thousands yearly by tourist and locals.
    But sadly this monastery was built on private lands own by a metallurgical mining company . Since 2016, it has been desired to demolish the Buddhist Shedrub Ling temple on Mount Kachkanar. The Buddhist community have tried many times to legalize the structures. The mining and others have claimed rights to the land. The Buddhist community was asked to leave then. The latest update dated second February 2021 is that the monastery will be under the security of the mining company where the Urals Buddhists are allowed back to the mountain only certain days of the week. May this inspiring monastery up in the mountains continue to flourish and may the mining company not demolished it .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this post reminds me of my first pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai San . Went with my Kecharians brothers and sisters few years back. Great memories indeed, we are so fortunate given the opportunity to visit such holy site of Lord Manjushri and more it’s a pilgrimage.
    Mount Wutai is a sacred mountain, one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Mount Wutai, known as ‘the five terrace mountain’, is the highest in Northern China believed to be the earthly abodes of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Great ….Each peak is inhabited by a different form of Manjushri. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain . From the 1st century AD to the early 20th century many temples have been built on the steep slopes . Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, are really amazing. The beautiful scenery there is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks. What really important is that Mount Wutai have a connection and vast history with many Tibetan lamas. From Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen to China’s most benevolent rulers, Emperor Kangxi .
    Looking through those beautiful pictures tell us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Karen for this wonderful sharing.

    Ullambana is a Buddhist festival celebrated on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar. It is a festival of liberation, as to provide salvation and relief to the ghosts and spirits of the dead. The Buddhist origins of the Ullambana Festival can be traced back to a story that originally came from India. By observing the practice of Ullambana we could liberate the deceased from the three suffering realms and allow the living to enjoy a life of abundance, good fortune and longevity. During this festival, offerings such as light, foods, prayers are made to the spirits of the dead and to the hungry ghosts. On this day, Buddhists offer prayers both to their departed forefathers and to their living parents and elders.
    Great …at Kechara Forest Retreat , Bentong, two powerful and extensive pujas will be performed according to the tradition of Gaden Monastery. We are fortunate this year even though we are not able to attend at KFR , these pujas will be streamed live. The two powerful and extensive pujas is to remove obstacles and generate even more merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Sharon Ong and those who are involved making it possible.

    Sad to see those homeless people and now with the pandemic , it is even more . Thousands of homeless people were housed in temporary shelters during Malaysia’s COVID-19 lockdown . We have to face and accept them they exist every where. Its true that the homeless and the people living on the streets, and many off them much as the thought might create discomfort and uneasiness among many of us. Occasionally, we might come across one sleeping on the pavement, smelly, begging, sitting on pavements with a vacant look in their eyes, walking with a sack and on the lookout for foods. Many have returned to the streets and are now living hand-to-mouth….
    H. E Tsem Rinpoche knows how it is to be homeless as he had experienced homelessness while teenager back in US. Tsem Rinpoche then set up Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to distribute warmed foods from 15 packets to thousands . With many volunteers helping up during the distribution in downtown Kuala Lumpur . Not only serves foods , giving free hair cuts and KSK’s volunteer doctors provide free medical check ups, wound dressings. These are some of the services provided. KSK team has done a wonderful jobs. The homeless deserves a much more caring society. Thanks to KSK team and volunteers , keep it up.
    Thank you Rinpoche and and Pastor Henry for this sharing.

    The sacred and magnificent Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Lijiang, Yunnan,at 5596 meters high is a famous snow mountain in China. It a tourist place for sightseeing, climbing, hiking, as it is covered by snow all year round. Having two new dharma centre in Yunnan province built has proven the growth of Dorje Shugden’s practice around the world. The first is a Dorje Shugden stupa in the Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain area . The second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la. Looking at those pictures is a blessing , these temples at the snow- capped mountains will definitely benefits many and many more to come. I have been to Yunnan the famous snow mountains but not been to these 2 temples as mentioned in this post. It was a very nice challenging to go up the Jade Dragon Snow mountain. I did enjoyed a nice and mysterious view anyways. Loved to visit Yunnan again if given a chance.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing………talented Korean artist painter An Jung-hwan creates realistic paintings that look like portals into vivid landscapes. His painstakingly meticulous technique simply amazing as perfect as a photograph . Each nature scene is so enticing in its clarity, he spends numerous weeks and countless hours working on a single painting. His stunning landscape paintings have been exhibited throughout Korea and Asia. He did held several solo exhibitions in Korea. Looking at those paintings in this post tells all…..so realistic. It could not see the difference whether its real or just paintings. Loves all his paintings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a GREAT artist.

    Unsung Hero of a Kenyan famer Patrick Mwalua who goes all the way out to save wild animals after witnessing a thirsty buffalo sniffing at an empty water hole during the drought. Since then he decided that he use his evenings to bring water to the animals to prevent them from going into the villages in search of water. The Kenyan hero have been supplying drinking water to animals. Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua known to many as the Waterman of Tsavo. He gained admiration over his passion to save the ecosystem by supplying clean drinking water at the Tsavo West National Park when the country was reeling from a prolonged dry spell. He found a cause that is more meaningful , giving new meaning to nature conservation. Inspiring indeed what he did is truly amazing travelling miles just to bring water to wild animals. Wish there were more like people Mwalua doing a good job saving animals.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Tunnels are echoey, dark and often damp are where the perfect places for ghostly encounters. That’s why so many tunnels are said to be haunted. They’re more than a little creepy as they are mostly abandoned railway tunnel with histories as former dwellings, burial grounds and so forth.
    Interesting to know all about those most haunted rather creepy tunnels across the globe. Wow ….it never come across me that there so many of them . Reading through these post and seeing those creepy pictures tells all some still continue to echo today. The legend behind this haunting of each tunnel really will scare people away yet many tunnel still carries trains today. Many reports said that strange lights, ghostly appearances and, most often, groans of agony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Tsunmo Tsel Monastery was once a summer residence for Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo and Princess Wencheng. Tsunmo Tsel is a Gelup monastery that was founded by Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen in 1420 in central Tibet. Interesting history of this Gelup monastery , located in Tsunmo Tsel village, Tibet where Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s body was placed in a stupa. It’s a beautiful Stupa and so blessed able to see it during my trip back in 2019. It seems that during renovations when his body was removed from the stupa, a fragrant scent permeated through the entire place. Well its a sign of his pure moral discipline being a close disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. He was well-known for holding his vows . Interest read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Interesting read of this Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery with an interesting legend behind it. All about a wealthy Han family having a daughter named Qiaoyun. She was considered to be as the emanation of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy . As a young age, Qiaoyun was already inclined towards Buddhism, refusing arranged marriage as her interest is in Buddhism. Her life story tells all how she managed to save many lives in the village even before she was ordained a nun. Great explanation of the significance of fragrant scent in Buddhism and sharing of the 33 manifestations of Guan Yin . Loved those pictures of Quan Yin , beautiful indeed and seeing it is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Yes this 12-year-old Mongolian boy name Uudam is really amazing . He sang beautifully in his song ‘Mother in the dream’ in the China got talent contest. He rendered the song full of emotion and delivered it deep from his heart, looking at his expression. His singing touched every audience and the judges as well . Even though not many people understand the lyrics in Mongolian yet his singing voice simply amazing and emotion . Such a great song indeed. All I could say he is truly talented .

    Shocking reading this again as it happened in Malaysia . At the Petknode Cat Boarding center or pet’s hotel in Damansara Damai and Sungai Buloh had been allegedly abandoned and starved 200 cats and a dog . Anxious pet owners and animal lovers came to the rescue. Over 100 cats and a dog were rescued from the Damansara Damai location ,while another 100 cats at Sungai Buloh. 300 starved and 13 died- Many outraged Malaysians including celebrities , social media Facebook groups expressed their anger over it. Hopefully stern punishment should enforced on those who abused animals. Animals should be given a chance to live, love by all, they are one of us . Teaching kids early to love ,care for animals should be taught in schools.

    Great teachings from this post to practice the Dharma well . We have to practice the preliminaries well before going further and deeper. The purpose of the preliminaries practice is to purify negative karma and accumulate merit . Once the teachings become realisation, and we prepare the mind for advance practices. Reading this will help us to realise the importance of learning dharma, transforming our mind and putting into practice. We should not of the importance of human rebirth and impermanence and all about at the time of death.
    Preliminary practice is Dharma practice. I have still plenty to learn from this knowledgeable post. Reading this over and over again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teachings.

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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
