The High Lama that Builds | 建庙的高僧

(译文请往下阅读)

High Lama, we usually associate that title with someone who sits on the throne, wears silk brocade robes, and receives offerings. But His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche chooses to get off the throne onto the contruction site of the temple of Kechara, to personally supervise and give advice at dangerous, dusty, messy place like that, because HE CARES. His Eminence puts into practice what he teaches on the throne.

说到“高僧”一词,我们通常会联想到一位坐在法座上、身穿绸缎袈裟接受众人供养的人,但是尊贵的詹杜固仁波切决定走下法座,到危机四伏、又热又脏又乱的建筑工地里去亲自监督建庙工程,只因他——关心众生。把在法座上所教导的佛法落实在现实生活中,言行一致,这就是——詹杜固仁波切。

    感恩仁波切

    佛法修行,倘若只是单单的念诵仪轨及经文咒语,那么我们离证悟还是有着一定的距离。

    佛法工作更不简单,需要把佛法弘扬并利益一切的众生,需要经历的辛苦是无法用言语能表达的

    然而,我们的上师詹杜固仁波切却不辞劳苦的,离开他的法座,身与力行的参与在任何的一项佛法工作里,无论遇到什么障碍,仁波切没有埋怨与没有丝毫放弃的念头,用他无私的大爱继续着所有的佛法事业,就单单的是一份他对于他上师的承诺与仁波切一个想造福与利益众生的菩提心

    仁波切以身作则的教导我们最直接的佛法,给予我们参与与学习佛法的机会,好让我们能累积福德资粮的机会,好使我们更贴近佛法与迈向证悟

    尊贵的仁波切,我向您顶礼感恩,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    Rinpoche always keeps to his words and syncs his words with his actions all the time. That is why many people believe and have faith with Lama. It is like Shakyamuni showing an example for all his students on how to conduct themselves.

  4. Albert Ratchaga on Jun 25, 2013 at 3:28 am

    Tsem Rinpoche is a leader of example, he does not only give instruction, but he also make his hand dirty by involving physically in the work.

    Despite with so many things he need to do, he will never sit on throne and ask the people around him to work and he just sit there, Rinpoche can never bear to see people work and he’s not, his only motive in this life is to spread Dharma, so whenever people around him are working hard, he will put in extra effort to make sure himself shown as example, never in one moment Rinpoche think about benefiting himself or self enjoyment, as long as there are people suffered, Rinpoche can;t even sleep at night. read this article to see how Rinpoche involve in the construction personally, Even the construction is handled by his students, but Rinpoche will always make sure everything is alright and his students are working in a safe environment. Rinpoche’s care and kindness are just incomparable.

    Rinpoche is not only just leader of example, he is also a person of detailed and sensitive. Rinpoche is always very sensitive of what other people need and he’ll try to fulfill them so they can work with the least hassle / hassle free.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always taking care of us, Rinpoche had created a place (KFR) for us and yet, Rinpoche will still always make sure this project is doing on it’s best. Thank you Rinpoche

  5. Lucas Roth on Jun 22, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Rinpoche is such a kind and caring man. he himself, a very high lama, would personally supervise the construction so that everything is okay and everyone is okay. i hope construction goes well too.

  6. Cliff on Jun 15, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Rinpoche is incredible, he is so humble, meticulous, compassionate and so much more, he has the sharpest mind i have ever known. Kechara Forest Retreat is very dear to Rinpoche and cares a lot about it wants to see things through that it is done right. Rinpoche not only cares about the construction work but also for the construction workers. Rinpoche could be meditating, going into retreat and pray but Rinpoche is there in the sun and mud working hard for Kechara Forest Retreat. Rinpoche truly believes the benefit KFR can bring to not only Malaysia but for everyone, because Rinpoche cares a lot. Rinpoche brings traditional Buddhism to the modern world and is doing an inspirational job for everyone to want to follow. Thank you for your hard work Rinpoche, I hope you are well rested and in good health.

  7. Felix Kong on Jun 10, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    To build Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) , can be benefit more and more peoples .Rinpoche is so humble ,oversees and give instruction under hot sun to make sure everyone is safe. We are so fortunate that have care from Rinpoche , I’m very appreciate and thank you very much Rinpoche .

  8. HelenaC on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    A High Lama in a muddy, dusty and dangerous construction land , I would say Rinpoche’s loves and cares alot no matter to his students, the workers and the stray animals in the land. Many of us will not willingly do whatever Rinpoche is doing, It is because we always think that we are all so high up, we should not dirty our hands under the hot sun and it is not our work! Well Rinpoche is a good mentor and example for us. The care and compassion that Rinpoche has shown us is really inspiring!
    We are all human and we are all equally the same, why are we putting ourselves so high up, it is all about our ego because we think this kinda dirty work it has to be done by foreign workers! Wrong wrong mind set. Together we can do it and speed up the progress of manifesting Kechara Forest Retreat to benefits many. In the other hands when the construction workers sees the team work of Kecharian, they will inspired and do work faster too and we can make them feel that we are together working and not just them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for your tireless love and care.

    Appreciated with love and folded hands.

  9. Carmen K on Jun 8, 2013 at 1:46 am

    When the initial concept of Kechara Forest Retreat was discussed, Rinpoche was there in the midst of the meetings. When it came to finding the right land and location, Rinpoche was involved. When the land was acquired and initial pujas and land offerings were to be done, Rinpoche was doing it. Rinpoche was organizing picnics on the land, then when it came to the first cabins being installed, Rinpoche was on site and lived in the cabins with some of the staffs to oversee the development and construction work. When the Ladrang, Manjushri Hill, Meditation Hall, Dukkar apartments, Ajai’s house was/is all being built, Rinpoche has been and is still there.

    From the very beginning Rinpoche has been there, committed, and very involved, getting stuck in mud, feeding workers and volunteers, digging through mud, trees, disassembling tents etc etc. and if we think about it, Kechara Forest Retreat is a GIFT to us, not our gift to Rinpoche because Rinpoche doesn’t need it but we do.

    Rinpoche practises everything he teaches – he has always maintained that everyone, even the leaders, has to get their hands dirty. Rinpoche sure has inspired all of us to follow suit.

  10. Soon Huat on Jun 6, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for all the guidance and help. I am reading the Promise Book now. I do not know what to say, it seems like I am getting to know Rinpoche better by reading the information of his previous life. We should follow Rinpoche’s guidance closely this life. My deareast Rinpoche, hope to meet you one day in close distance one day

  11. Thierry on Jun 6, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Rinpoche cares, this is why Rinpoche walks the talk, because he cares for others. And we all are the others, all of us.
    Rinpoche leads by example, because he cares, not because he needs sonething from others, but because he cares.
    Rinpoche makes time for others, even if Rinpoche is exhausted physically, because he cares, because others are more important to Rinpoche than being comfortable.
    Rinpoche always give, not because he wants people to like him, but because he cares, and so Rinpoche gives because others need it.

  12. Lim Han Nee on Jun 5, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Rinpoche is rare even for a Lama of these modern times. He walks the talk in every way.He shows his care in every way, directly and indirectly.He shows, by fine example, how we should be part of the process of building Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Ever since Kechara Forest Retreat started to take off, he has been on the spot,especially, when the construction works began to be seriously undertaken. If we go to KFR now, we see that Rinpoche is roughing it out in a still raw environment, fraught with all kinds of dangers and hazards. He is on the spot to check the work in progress. When danger threatens, he stops the building immediately. That was why he called a halt to the building of the fish pond, just before the collapse of the waterfall feature.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  13. MartinC on Jun 5, 2013 at 6:57 am

    I think Seng Piow said it best a while ago and its worth repeating. In tradition it is the students who should build for the lama to stay so that all the lama need to do is focus on the Dharma. But Tsem Rinpoche not only has to teach the Dharma, nurture the students, and often train each one individually not to mention solve personal problems, Rinpoche also conceptualizes and builds KFR.

    In the earlier days the terrain was quite unfriendly but it did not deter Rinpoche from checking out just about every square inch of KFR, hills included, to work out what is best to be done and where.Where the Meditation Hall is being constructed, Rinpoche once became stuck knee-high in mud as he did his rounds supervising the land preparation. In fact one side of Rinpoche’s shoes is still buried there which is extremely auspicious.

    Many might also remember Rinpoche personally choosing and overseeing the construction of Ajai’s home. Ajai is the a foreign worker who works very hard on KFR.

    We should always remember why Rinpoche does all these things when he is in fact revered as a king in the monasteries. It will be many aeons before any of us will have another opportunity to be a student to such a lama, if we don’t grab this chance now.

  14. beatrix ooi on Jun 5, 2013 at 1:29 am

    For other Lamas, they should be sitting on their thrones and give instructions to the disciples, but our Rinpoche is that kind of Lama who will get His own hands dirty and put things into action. We actually should be ashamed that we are not doing what we should do as Kecharians and eventually the Lama has to do it, Rinpoche is truly very humble and kind. Thank You Rinpoche for continuing to benefit a lot of people.
    Thank You for sharing Seng Piow.

  15. So Kin Hoe on Jun 4, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    We are very fortunate to have a Guru who cares for us, checking for every corner of Kechara Forest Retreat so that we will be comfortable and safe from any construction defects whenever we stay in Kechara Forest Retreat for puja, meditation, Dharma classes or other activities.

  16. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jun 4, 2013 at 1:54 am

    修与行本来就是并重的,如果只懂得道理而不去实践的话,你永远都没有办法真正的体会到各种的真理。就像仁波切一样,他所教导的,都是很实际的可以运用在我们的生活上,并且帮助我们度过种种的难关,而且他也一直的以身作则,来证明给我们看他的教义是可行且有效的。我之所以皈依在他的座下,也就是因为这个因素。

  17. Erickksiow on Jun 4, 2013 at 1:30 am

    Rinpoche will never stop to keep benefiting others, and very inspiring me, i am very very fortunate to met a High Lama ( Tsem Rinpoche ) in life. Much Appreciated.

    From bottom of my heart : Thank you Rinpoche..!!

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  18. pavara on Jun 3, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Even such a high lama goes out in to the sun and mud just to oversee the work of the containers.
    Normal lamas do not go outdoors to oversee works ETC….
    Instead they teach people the Dharma and lead other people to enlightenment.
    Our lama really cares about things and even goes out to see the work.
    Our guru really cares for us and our future.

  19. tenzin llhamo on Jun 3, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Its because Rinpoche love us that we have Kechara Forest Retreat. It is for us and our future generations. Even so, Rinpoche make sure that everything is done right and it will be okay for us and those that will come from far and wide to visit. To a point that Rinpoche Himself inspect the place and instruct what should be done correctly. Although Rinpoche is High Lama, He will still do little things like this. Thank you Rinpoche for your love and care always!

  20. Julien Roth on Jun 3, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Haha, this is so cool. I actually think Rinpoche is the only high lama which actually is there to watch and take control of the construction. And the construction is all for a good cause, to build KFR to spread Dharma, i couldn’t think of a better reason to build.

  21. Patsy on Jun 2, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    Rinpoche is always very concerned about the welfare of his students and friends and He will go all out to make sure that everything is alright. Rinpoche not only gives dharma talk on a high throne but out in the open under scorching heat. Every moment with him is a teaching. Rinpoche walks the talk and He oversees to the construction of KFR because He cares.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for your unconditional love:)

  22. Bryan Ho on Jun 2, 2013 at 3:44 am

    I’m lucky enough to served Rinpoche closely and I also extremely fortunate to be sent to monastery and help Rinpoche on monastery related matters quite often.

    During one of my visit to Gaden, I met this very senior and holy monk, Gen Ngawang, who is highly respected in the monastery due to his great knowledge on sutra and tantra. Gen Ngawang was Tsem Rinpoche’s direct previous life’s (Kentrul Thubten Lamsang Rinpoche) student. He was ordained by Kentrul Thubten Lamsang Rinpoche when he was around 7 years old and studied under Kentrul Rinpoche until he was 15 and sent to Gaden in Lhasa by Kentrul Rinpoche.

    Gen Ngawang was born in Phari in Tibet, and this is where Tsem Rinpoche’s previous life turn the wheel of Dharma. Kentrul Rinpoche was HH Trijang Rinpoche’s student and was sent to Phari by HH Trijang Rinpoche in order to bring Dharma to one of the most remote area in Tibet.

    Few years later, Kentrul Rinpoche build 2 big and 1 small monasteries in Phari area, which also contained of 3 storey high Yamantaka, Heruka, and Vajrayogini statue in one of the monastery. Most of the lay persons in that region are all studied under Kentrul Rinpoche, Gen Ngawang told me he remember Kentrul Rinpoche have about 10k student and always come and seek Kentrul Rinpoche for advise. During that time, Kentrul Rinpoche will gather a lot of silver offering and offered to his teacher HH Trijang Rinpoche, Gaden and Gyuto Monastery in Lhasa.

    My point is , I got all this stories from an old monk that I never met but the stories that he told me is 100% same like what Rinpoche is doing in this life time. Tsem Rinpoche was sent to Malaysia by his current life teacher, HH Zong Rinpoche in order to bring authentic Dharma to remote area (Malaysia), and Tsem Rinpoche build monastery (Kechara) and big statue (12ft Tsongkhpa, 9 ft Vajrayogini and 8ft Setrap in Kechara House Gompa), and now Rinpoche is building Kechara FOrest Retreat for everyone. Also don forget Tsem Rinpoche always sponsor and help monastery in order for the monks to get better living environment so they can concentrate on study. This is what I see which match with what i heard from Gen Ngawang.

    Tsem Rinpoche have been building monastery and bring Dharma to many others, we are lucky enough to meet a living Buddha that have no other motive for others and he will continue again and again. We should not let Tsem Rinpoche do this alone, and we should do whatever we can to help him to get this up, because Kechara Forest Retreat is not a place for him but a place for us.

    • Louise Lee on Jun 5, 2013 at 10:27 am

      Bryan 你说的对。 我还记得上次我们在印度拜访这位喇嘛时,他是多么的欢喜!当他提到仁波切是,他的脸上是充满了敬意、感恩、快乐、怀念。。。。等等的, 眼里充满了泪光!

      亲耳听到他诉说,我也非常感恩。 因为我深深地明白,这一世我能遇见仁波切,而且能够在仁波切的佛教中心里做全职, 我前世一定是做了一些好东西。

      所以,我一定要努力为仁波切与克切拉。因为这里不但可以利益我、家人与朋友, 还会利益一切众生。

      每天在这里工作,看到那么多需要帮忙的群众, 让我要加快脚步, 漫不下来。

      Kechara Forest Retreat 将要完成,必须要完成!我们一定要努力!

      谢谢,Bryan 、 胜彪与一群在仁波切的助理! 还有所有的职工!

  23. lucy yap on Jun 1, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Rinpoche is much more than a teacher to his students.He CARES and wants nothing but gives everything!.Rinpoche shows selfless love and compassion towards all his students and beings alike.
    Such unconditional love and acceptance we can only receive from a genuine Guru.Thank you Rinpoche.

  24. Sharon Saw on Jun 1, 2013 at 2:18 am

    Rinpoche has always told us that we need to get our hands dirty and be totally involved in everything we do. Rinpoche certainly has been walking the talk here at Kechara Forest Retreat, which he oversees because he is deeply concerned about the people who will stay in the cabins and he wants to know that it is safe and comfortable for all. Rinpoche is certainly someone to emulate as he exemplifies the bodhicitta heart.

  25. edward ooi on Jun 1, 2013 at 2:03 am

    We (Kecharians) must be grateful that we have a Guru that love and care for us. Tsem Rinpoche should be sitting in the Ladrang doing what Rinpoche want to do but instead, Rinpoche decided to go to the construction area and see how is the constructions.

  26. Girlie OOI on May 31, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    Our Rinpoche is not the typical Lama who sits on his throne and gives Dharma teachings. He gets his hands dirty and joins the group hands-on in the building process.

    Rinpoche is so humble; he doesn’t mind the mud, nor the rain, nor the sun.

    • Jay Jae on Jun 4, 2013 at 4:41 pm

      Only a Lama who cares from the bottom of his heart will do this! Rinpoche’s love for every single one of us is incomparable and beautifully etched in our hearts. Don’t u agree?

  27. Jay Jae on May 31, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    In the past, high Lamas of Tibetan Buddhism are considered ‘high’ due to their attainments and abilities to teach the masses. As time evolves, society changes and when Tibetan Buddhism took flight out of Tibet into the different parts of the world, the presentation of the teachings is different but the essence is pretty much the same.

    Here, His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche bridges the age old wisdom of the Buddha with modern day life, walking out of the monasteries into the world, teaching by example of taking a step further to go onto the grounds n be part of the building of our institution Kechara Forest Retreat.

    We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche with us, and through his prayers and vision, we are assured of a very bright and fulfilling future.

  28. Jessica Yap on May 31, 2013 at 1:28 am

    It is so inspiring to know that Rinpoche is so humble and chooses to walk on the mud under the scorching sun to oversee the whole process. Rinpoche is definitely a true Buddha indeed. Rinpoche walks the talk. That is how Rinpoche cares for us. Whether we are Rinpoche’s student or not, Rinpoche works tirelessly to benefit others. Yet our beloved Lama wants nothing but our mind transformation in return.

    I love my Guru!
    Thank you for sharing, Seng Piow!

    Colombia undertaker launches ghostly census

    The enterprising Betancur Funeral Home owner said he began the list a few weeks ago, sending “a team of four funeral parlour workers — properly attired in uniforms — to buildings” around Medellin, 245 kilometers (152 miles) northwest of the capital Bogota.

    “They’ve reported back with 215 ghosts…. Our video and still cameras have captured 23,” he said with pride.

    Bentong is a town located in the western part of the Pahang.It is one of the towns which for the gains from tin mining had attracted the prominent Bentong entrepreneurs to Bentong in the Pre -WW11 era.
    Loke Yew has contributed greatly to the development of Bentong during tin mining era.We must not forget the contribution of these people even though they existed a century ago.Thank you for the interesting sharing of the early history and origin of Bentong town.

    In 2006, a sculpture of coloured papercutting art – Jiangwa la ma Meixiang qi (Jiangwa leads the horse while Meixiang rides) stood at the newly built Xunyi County Central Cultural Square. This sculpture showcased the great artistic charm of the regional Xunyi style of papercutting. The handcrafted piece originated from a native rural woman, Ku Shulan, who was born and raised in Xunyi County.

    Video games are electronic games played across a variety of different platforms like computers and smart phones. Some research questions I will consider are, ‘What makes video games violent?’, ‘If VVGs are harmful, to what extent are they harmful?’ and ‘Should VVGs face more or less rigorous regulations?’ One of my assumptions is that it is difficult to control variables in order to, with validity, link VVGs effects with harm to society. Another assumption is that the studies into VVGs will primarily focus on any negative influences rather than any positives.

    I will argue that because of how widespread and deep rooted in pop culture VVGs have become, society will inevitably be affected in some way, and therefore some regulation should be strongly considered. Furthermore, we should cautiously approach regulating VVGs as this topic is known to be sensitive to conflicting parties such as parents and children. However, there is a large range of uncontrolled factors in many of the published research studies on VVGs, and it is difficult to generalise many of their conclusions, as harmful to society. Therefore I will argue for the importance of understanding context when we examine VVGs and their effects. My aim in this essay is to highlight some complexities of the arguments surrounding VVGs and attempt to give a broader picture, and educate against the polarising views of hostility and dismissal often shown towards these games.

    This article will be looking at the issue of whether or not violent video games (VVGs) are harmful to society. Read more at http://bit.ly/2JdmUBk

    Now in the European Union (EU), all cosmetic products that are tested on animals are banned! It hasn’t taken full effect, but it has been implemented. The previous ban that was implemented in 2009 to stop animal testing, was also re-enforced so that no animals are allowed to be used even if it is to test on complex health effects such as cancer.

    I am very glad to hear this news… every year, millions of animals die and suffer for being used to test cosmetic products. It is terrible that for beauty, we support products that are tested on animals. There are newer technology that can test these cosmetics without the need of animals. The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) did a great job in pressuring the whole European Union to ban animal testing for cosmetics even at the risk of jeopardizing the cosmetic industry.

    I hope that the ban on animal testing will be fully implemented to all countries and for the ban to not only cover cosmetics, but for many other products such as in the medical field.

    Countries which are part of the EU are:

    Austria
    Belgium
    Bulgaria
    Cyprus
    Czech Republic
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Finland
    France

    Freedom and Jeff Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places. She’s my baby.

    When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vet’s office. From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

    This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was winning. She was going to be put down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized; but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle. She was ready to live. I was just about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

    Wonderful Thailand

    We should go on pilgrimage to places where holy beings are known to reside or where great practitioners have engaged in profound practices. These places are vortexes of energy – an area where concentrated energy naturally converges on the planet’s surface.

    Say NO to Elephant-RIDING, say NO to using elephants for human entertainment in Circuises or Tourisms . . .

    Elephants that ”work” in Thailand and other tourist destinations have to go through a ritual called phajaan, or “crush”. It begins with the baby elephants (usually three to four years old) being taken from their mothers and placed in a small, wooden pen. To get them securely in the pen, these babies are beaten with bamboo, sticks with nails attached to the tip and bull hooks. Once in place, the crush lasts for roughly a week. During this time, they are beaten, bludgeoned, have hooks attached to their sensitive ears, and are deprived of food and water as well as sleep, all in the name of breaking ties with their mothers and becoming domesticated. While in the crush, through the infliction of pain, they learn how to accept riders, do circus tricks and paint. This is designed to break the animal’s spirit which it certainly achieves, often taking its sanity too.

    Used for centuries to domesticate wild elephants, this torture training method is still accepted as the only viable training method for elephant handlers and is used in almost every elephant attraction in Thailand.And, once they have their souls stomped out, they are simply vessels entertaining people. They are chained. They don’t eat enough.

    Like humans, elephants have the capability to form relationships and have emotions. But, not the elephants working for the tourists.

    People who visit Thailand — and other countries with elephant tourism — don’t realize the damage they cause these elephants when they support trekking camps, go to circuses or buy the paintings done by these creatures. Without knowing, they send a clear message to the elephant tourism industry that shows they support the torture these animals go through early in their life, as well as the horrific conditions they live in as cogs in the tourism wheel. Please never support this horrible practice, never ride an elephant. (Andres Grijalva)

    A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.



    This is her story of giving gratitude.

    A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her… a very dangerous proposition.

    One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

    They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

    When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

    The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

    May you be so fortunate …

    To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

    And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this documentary of the oracle. I know of people taking trance of local deities or gods in Taoist tradition but I didn’t know Tibetan Buddhism has specially trained people taking trance of Buddhas.

    Since we cannot see or communicate with Buddhas directly, oracle becomes the best medium to connect us with Buddhas. The advice given by oracle who is taking trance of an enlightened being is definitely for our benefit as this is the motivation of a Buddha.

    We are lucky to have Rinpoche who introduced to us the Dorje Shugden oracle. We can go to Kechara Forest Retreat to pay homage to Dorje Shugden oracle statue if we don’t have the merits to have an audience with the oracle in person.

    After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from:It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

    Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/burlington_county_times_news/fda-some-chicken-may-have-small-amount-of-arsenic/article_0ecc5758-91f7-11e0-a572-001a4bcf6878.html)

    Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

    But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/2011-06-08-fda-admits-supermarket-chickens-test-positive-for-arsenic). And what’s the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

    Animals in the wild have to continually contend with the expansion of human civilization. Certain wild animals have learned to coexist and even thrive in urban settings, pigeons and raccoons being obvious examples.

    Well, subway goers in Moscow are becoming familiar with stray dogs. These dogs have become accustomed to using the subway system as a means to travel across Moscow, even managing to catch a nap along the way. The dogs hop on in the morning and travel to the city center where they spend the day begging for scraps. At the end of the day they get back on the subway and travel to the suburbs where they sleep in relative safety.

    The dogs have become experts at judging the length of time they need to stay on the train, and seem to work together to ensure that they exit the subway at the right stop.

    Scientists believe this phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city center to the suburbs.

    Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city center, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway – to get to the center in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
