H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his guru Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe feeding pigeons in Bambay, India, while Kensur Rinpoche was there getting medical treatment which was arranged by Tsem Rinpoche. 堪梭仁波切与詹杜固仁波切在孟买喂食鸽子。堪梭仁波切当时患上糖尿病,詹仁波切陪同他前往检查及接受治疗。在詹仁波切及其僧侣细心照顾下,堪梭仁波切恢复健康,甘丹萨济寺深表感激

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche being put on a throne and made offerings to by Gaden Shartse Monastery when Rinpoche visited in recent years. 当詹杜固仁波切回到甘丹寺时,寺院都为他供养法座

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche was recognized as a reincarned high lama in 1990 in Gaden Monastery. However, in the Gelug lineage, even if you are a reincarnation, you still need to prove yourself in this lifetime with your knowledge, practice, and guru devotion.

Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe was a great lama and one of the gurus of Tsem Rinpoche, and Kensur Rinpoche was also the ex-abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery, but his health back then was always not very good. Tsem Rinpoche invited Kensur Rinpoche to stay in Tsem Rinpoche’s ladrang in Gaden Monastery, and Tsem Rinpoche went all the way to take care of Kensur Rinpoche, from arranging Kensur Rinpoche’s daily necessities, to bringing Kensur Rinpoche to various places in India to seek medical advice and treatments for Kensur Rinpoche’s illness. And after that Tsem Rinpoche followed up with the doctors diligently and made sure that Kensur Rinpoche took the medications regularly and had the proper diet for the illness, Tsem Rinpoche did that every single day without fail, until Kensur Rinpoche healed completely.

Soon, news spread on how Kensur Rinpoche had healed from the illness that he had been having for years, and the whole monastery of thousands of monks were very grateful and appreciative towards Tsem Rinpoche for healing their great teacher Kensur Rinpoche. That is why until now whenever Tsem Rinpoche returns to the monastery, the monastery always offers Tsem Rinpoche the throne, to recognize Rinpoche’s quality as he has again proven in this lifetime to be a great incarnation, which is clearly shown in his guru devotion towards Kensur Rinpoche.

Tsem Rinpoche was especially well-known among the monastic community for his great guru devotion towards Kensur Rinpoche

 


 

詹杜固仁波切在1988年进入甘丹寺,并在1990年被认证为转世仁波切。在格鲁派(黄教)的传统里,即使你是转世的仁波切,这一世你也必须再度以学识和修行证明你自己,就是因为黄教的这种“选贤任能”的制度,使到历代寺院里高僧辈出,因为无论一位僧人的身世如何,他都能够凭着现世的努力和修行登上法座。

詹杜固仁波切在甘丹寺的上师是堪梭仁波切詹巴耶喜。堪梭仁波切是一位伟大的喇嘛,但是身体状况一直不是很好。詹杜固仁波切把上师照顾得无微不至,上师的生活起居等每一个细节都被打理得有条不紊。上师患有糖尿病,詹杜固仁波切更是带上师到印度各地拜访名医,终于使上师的病情好转了许多。詹杜固仁波切对上师不辞劳苦的付出和关怀传遍的整个寺院,众僧人们无一不对仁波切礼敬上师的伟大德行加以赞叹。所以今天每当仁波切回到甘丹寺时,寺院都为他供养法座,不是因为他是转世的仁波切,而是因为他对上师无私的彻底付出,恰恰履行了学佛修行道上最根本、最重要的一点——礼敬上师。

    Being devoted to a Guru is not a fanatical action. It’s just like a child being filial to his or her parents. How about someone who imparts some thing even more precious like Dharma? We should even do more, have faith and care more for this person as we are going to receive something very holy and precious ~ Dharma!

    Even when we go to the doctor, we will surely listen attentively without much fuss and debate because we surrender to their professionalism and opinion which we are lack off, right? And how about someone who present Dharma to us, in this case our Guru? Why when comes to Guru Devotion, people will start to debate and argue?

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for letting us know how Rinpoche being devoted to His teacher and the care that He poured out in taking care of His teacher. This will encourage us to do the same , or at least having faith in Him.

    Rinpoche’s guru devotion as an example for us.To treat our guru with care and respect. Rinpoche was well-known among the monastic community for his great guru devotion towards Kensur Rinpoche.Its very important to understand and practice Guru Devotion .I do hope i can get to understand it.May Our Guru..Rinpoche be healthy and live long to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefits all sentient beings.
    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this article.

  3. Anne Ong on Feb 19, 2017 at 9:21 pm

    I came to learn and understand that Guru devotion is very important to Rinpoche. And i have also realised we should all try to practice guru devotion too. Rinpoche is showing very good example to us with his devotion to his Guru. I hope i can also follow Rinpoche’s example the best i can too. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this article._/\_

  4. sandra on Mar 26, 2015 at 8:52 pm

    Love this story of Rinpoche’s incredible guru devotion to his gurus too. Without the guru there is no hope in a hopeless existence. As they say the guru is buddha, yidam, protector, and epitome of sangha. May we learn from him and be like him. Incredible incredible.

  5. sandra on Mar 26, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    Buddha is complete and whole. No need for anything else. What it must be like inside a bodhisattva’s mind but we have seen plenty of examples of Rinpoche in generous action throughout this blog. So thank you to his attendants and team for putting this blog up and maintaining social media pages even though its not easy for you. But people far from buddhas and buddhahood only have this portal to be inspired from and to learn from and to reflect from. Your work is faultless and priceless. Thank you.

  6. Pee Bee Chong on Nov 3, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for setting an excellent example for us to follow. May Rinpoche always healthy and always remain with us to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  7. pema thrinley on Nov 16, 2013 at 5:47 am

    i feel blessed ….thank you Rinpoche

  8. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Nov 4, 2013 at 1:58 am

    Thanks Seng Piow for sharing this article with us.

    Rinpoche show us the Real 100% Guru Devotion and 100% clean Guru Samaya hence Rinpoche always compassion and care for all students. We are so grateful for having a True Bodhisattva Guru.

    May all students and Kecharians able to lesser down our ignorance and gain more Merits through practices and clean Guru Samaya hence to succeed all Rinpoche projects like what Rinpoche did according to Rinpoche Guru…

  9. Irene Lim on Sep 30, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    I have been following Rinpoche for around 20 years and I have witnessed how Rinpoche devout to his gurus. Rinpoche’s guru devotion is so perfect and exemplary.

  10. Nancy ng on Sep 27, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Rinpoche has shown us a very high standard of Guru Devotion. It will not be easy to emulate but with dedication and the right motivation, it is achievable.People in today’s day and age is vulnerable to distractions, hence consistency is key to sustained spiritual practice.

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 27, 2013 at 8:48 am

    Through Rinpoche faith and devotion and effort he was able to heal his guru. Rinpoche’s compassion is boundless.

  12. Cliff on Sep 25, 2013 at 2:10 am

    Rinpoche has always explained to us the many ways of how Guru Devotion can be so powerful and has always encouraged us to recite the 50 verses of guru devotion. Because of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche hard effort, love, care and guru devotion Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe was able to fully recover. Guru Devotion is not worshiping the Guru but more of respecting the Dharma teachings which the Guru teaches you which is so valuable. It is also a way of purifying your karma and gaining merits by taking care of your Guru or even to just be close to your Guru. Thank you for sharing this post Rinpoche. I hope Rinpoche’s health is well.

  13. June Tang(KHJB) on Sep 23, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this post. Rinpoche always lead by example, Rinpoche’s love, compassion and care not only shown to his Guru, and also towards his students. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche in Kechara, we should follow his step to serve Our Guru in that way !!

  14. henry ooi on Sep 23, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    Rinpoche’s guru devotion is so steadfast and deep that often he would shed tears of gratitude and joy when Rinpoche mentioned his Gurus’ names. And tears of missing these great Lamas who had done so much for dharma.

  15. wansan on Sep 20, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    Rinpoche’s strong guru devotion is indeed undeniable. Taking care of His guru’s everyday needs and also medical checkups are indeed a lot of work but Rinpoche never ever once complained about it. How many of us can do that?
    Some of us even have hard time taking care of our own parents..
    Rinpoche shows a really good example of being a strong and devoted student to His guru and that’s what we all should do.

  16. tenzin llhamo on Sep 19, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Rinpoche’s care, love, compassion and kindness are never ending! Through His perseverance and effort, Kensur Rinpoche became well, free from his illness. And the best part is that nobody asked Rinpoche to do so. Rinpoche willingly, out of deep love and respect, took care of Kensur Rinpoche. Thank you for sharing such beautiful posts of Rinpoche always.

  17. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 19, 2013 at 3:17 am

    Thank You for sharing the article Seng Piow! Guru devotion is definitely something very important in a teacher-disciple relationship, if you have very strong guru devotion, it shows that you really do care, appreciate and trust the guru and therefore you will have very strong connection with the guru.

  18. David Lai on Sep 18, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    One thing rinpoche always did was to be consistent in whatever he did. Rinpoche had always had Dharma as a priority. Therefore, Rinpoche would always be respectful and would devote all of his body, speech and mind to his Gurus. He shows by example that one not only have devotion but always try to maintain excellent thoughts about his Gurus no matter what has been expressed.

    People have told him nasty rumours and his Gurus had been fierce with him and even scolded him but he had never wavered from having pure thoughts of his Gurus. This is something we as Kecharians should all learn. We have checked out Rinpoche and has felt that his history and his teachings benefitted us tremendously and therefore have understood his motivation. Since we understood that, we should remain steadfast and not be swayed by anything else. We learn it through Rinpoche’s own experience. Many of Rinpoche’s Gurus are living Bodhisattvas and attained beings. They must see Rinpoche’s potential and motivation and have accepted them. Therefore, we must too.

  19. Pastor Yek Yee on Sep 18, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche always showed his students how to respect the sangha member and Rinpoche always showed his action how Rinpoche take care his own Guru. The past five years, many things had changed, many people come and go, however, I noticed that Tsem Rinpoche still take care of his Guru very well and completely devoted what he had promised to his Gurus. That is one of the good quality inspired me always and respect H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche so much.

    May Tsem Rinpoche live long.
    May all harmful negative energy and,
    may all obstacles will be dispel.

  20. Andrew James Boon on Sep 18, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    There are many incredibly good traits that Rinpoche has and one of them that is undeniable is Rinpoche’s immense Guru devotion. It is this fortitude and strength that is ingrained in Rinpoche, which has enabled us Malaysians to be fortunate enough that Rinpoche calls Malaysia home now! Rejoice!

  21. hecelus tan on Sep 18, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Kechara’s Board of Directors, 2013 (PART 2 of 2)
    After watching this teaching, I found that I have made a lot of mistakes choices.The 1st is I am not good enough in supporting Kechara like always makes shopping in Kechara Paradise. Now I realized that I am totally wrong in wanted to become a monk in FGS and fortunately I have not become a monk and I will not going to be in FGS. Like Rinpoche have been mentioned in this teaching, how can we supporting Nokia branded items but we actually hired and works in a Samsung branded company. That‘s not logical and I will stop all the mistaken actions and completely dedicated myself to my own center- Kechara. After I finished all the courses in FGS. I will immediately back to my own mother center who had been nurtured me for many years and put much effort on me that helps me grow a lot. I will dedicate to Kechara in many ways that I am able to help center growth. I still remembered the 1st so called promised to Rinpoche was to help Rinpoche in now and in the future. So I hope Rinpoche will forgive all the past stupid and not logical actions or promised I had done to Rinpoche and Kechara. Now I only have one firmed promised to Rinpoche is that in the future I want to work for Kechara too! Not any other organization but only for Kechara. Okay, that is all I wanted to confessed and keep on improving and growing. Start from today until at the end of my life, only focused on dedicate for Kechara, on practicing Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga, Setrap and Manjushri only, on Rinpoche personal’s advice and teachings and so forth. Not too much,but I am trying to be focused on one that may change my whole life. Thank you and wish Rinpoche longevity and keep on guiding us until all of us achieve enlightenment!

  22. guat hee on Sep 17, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to let us know how important of guru devotion.
    Rinpoche is a good example for us to follow.

  23. Darren Kechara on Sep 17, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche’s great guru devotion is well known in Gaden Monestery. Rinpoche has keep his promise to root guru Zong Rinpoche to be a monk in India. Rinpoche even came to Malaysia to teach to obey his guru instruction to benefit more people here. Though Rinpoche wants to stay in India to for retreat and serve his guru…

  24. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 17, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Relying on the Spiritual Guide IS the foundation of the graduated Path to full Enlightenment(see the Lamrim). In the ’50 stanzas of Guru Devotion’, it is stated that we will not gain any realization without the Guru. It is through practicing Guru Devotion, through serving our Guru faithfully and consistently, that we will finally realize selflessness, and selflessness is the way to true peace and happiness.

    Tsem Rinpoche practices faultless Guru Devotion, be it to his root Guru, Zong Rinpoche , or to any one of his 15 gurus , including Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe in Gaden Shartse Monastery in India.He is the walking embodiment of the 50 stanzas. He shows by example to all of us, his students, how we should devote ourselves to our Gurus.

    Just visualizing Tsem Rinpoche’s care of Kensur Rinpoche on a daily basis, one can see Guru devotion in operation as one’s daily practice of the Dharma.

    The fruit of Tsem Rinpoche’s vigilant and thoroughly care of Kensur Rinpoche was that Kensur Rinpoche was amazingly healed of his sickness which had plagued him for years.

  25. KYC on Sep 17, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    In the Kechara Staff Dharma class today, 17 students shared about their feelings and thoughts about how H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s acts of guru devotion have influenced or impacted them. Rinpoche’s guru devotion is exemplary and is found in the behaviour of many great Tibetan lamas. Tsem Rinpoche’s devotion to his gurus is a Dharma teaching in itself.

  26. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Sep 16, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Thank you very much for sharing the great guru devotion as shown by Tsem Rinpoche towards his guru Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe. Rinpoche has proven and lead by example for us that no matter how important and busy with our daily chores, guru devotion is always the first priority in our mind and our actions. With guru devotion, I pray for all of us to have great masters in this life and all our future life times.

  27. Niral Patel on Sep 16, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    H.E. Tsem Rinpoche teaches us in more ways than one, here he teaches us through his skillful means and by setting an excellent example for others to follow. True to our tradition, Rinpoche through his actions has highlighted one of the most important points for us to remember – Guru Devotion.

    Some people might rebuke the practice of devotion to the Guru but they just need to think about it logically. The refuge prayer starts with “Namo Guru Beh” as without the Guru, you may be able to learn the Dharma from scriptures but to really be able to apply it in your daily life you really need to have someone to show you how. The person that you rely on should have practiced what they preach, have trained under qualified masters themselves and be truly able to share the essence of the teachings with you. Tsem Rinpoche is such a person.

    Guru devotion is not a baseless ideal but is a method for you to generate merits yourself and repay the a higher kindness that has been shown to you by your Guru – the teaching of the Dharma, which is the greatest gift of all.

  28. sockwan on Sep 16, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    While Rinpoche is my Guru, he was also a student. He demonstrated to us how a spiritual student should behave and how to treat our guru. Rinpoche has achieved so much in his life and it all was because he put his 100% faith and trust on his gurus with 100% devotion.

    Rinpoche is an achiever, he has founded Kechara Organisation and so many people have benefited. Rinpoche is also a happy and peaceful person, who has truly found the inner peace and happiness. I want to have inner peace and happiness too, that is why I follow the footstep of Rinpoche, he has proven to me by having faith, trust and devotion to one’s guru, I will be able to find the inner peace and happiness that I have been looking for.

  29. Sharon Saw on Sep 16, 2013 at 9:56 am

    Thanks for sharing this, Seng Piow. I would just like to add that Tsem Rinpoche was not only devoted to Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche, he was very devoted to all his teachers, from Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche in Howell, New Jersey, to Ven. Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen in Los Angeles and of course his root Guru Zong Rinpoche. Throughout his life, Tsem Rinpoche has been very consistent in his Guru devotion and tremendous respect for his Gurus and this quality is something he is well known for at Gaden monastery. As Guru Devotion is crucial for our Dharma practice, it is a quality which we should emulate Rinpoche on. After all, it says in the very first verse of Yonten Shigyurma, or the Foundation of good qualities:

    Well-realising that the root of the path,
    the foundation for every realisation,
    is to properly rely on my kind Guru,
    bless me to do so with great effort and devotion.

    • Datuk May on Sep 16, 2013 at 5:12 pm

      Sharon, of course you will remember Rinpoche’s guru devotion from his first Guru in Howell as you were part of the team who went to USA on the research and then documented the book “The Promise”.

      May all of us, Rinpoche’s student be able to emulate this quality.

  30. Albert Ratchaga on Sep 16, 2013 at 3:28 am

    As a student, Tsem Rinpoche already showed his incredible guru devotion back then in Gaden Monastery. He will do whatever and spend all his time to take care of his teacher and to fulfill whatever wish his teacher has. He will go all the way in his spiritual practice.

    Rinpoche wish so much to be near to his guru at all time and stay in the monastery, but due to his promise to his guru, he willing to let go what he wanted to do and come out to teach.

    As a teacher, he would spent every effort to take care of his students, regardless of what day, what time, he will never abandon his student or care lesser on his students, but in fact, the more difficult the situation, the more he cared for everyone that is around him.

    Rinpoche is a walking Dharma, he embodied all good qualities of his teacher, he will make sure everything is well and smooth for his teacher so his teacher can teach with hassle free. His action and speech is all about Dharma and even when he is sick or very busy, he still teach from the result of his work. To Rinpoche, beside Dharma, he wanted nothing else.

  31. louise on Sep 15, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    每当仁波切提起他尊贵的上师, 仁波切都会流泪。这是我亲眼看到的。 仁波切对上师的尊爱, 是我们的学习方向。

  32. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 15, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche’s guru devotion is exemplary. He offered his Ladrang to Kensur Jampa Yeshe, and took him to seek treatment in various places in India. He left no stone unturned to ensure that his Guru’s health problems were resolved.He was only satisfied when Kensur Rinpoche was cured.

    But Rinpoche is also as caring towards his students, making sure they are cared for, whether sick or well.

  33. CK Siah on Sep 14, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    同修们,我们都知道在藏传佛教中,上师依止心是最重要的根本。但在现实这也是我们最难做到的。仁波切对上师无私的彻底付出和承诺是我最敬佩的。在学佛的过程中我会惦记这一些,听从仁波切的教诲和指示, 我想要礼敬上师最重要的是做好本份开始。谢谢仁波切的分享

  34. Tong sunsun on Sep 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    看见仁波切对上师的依止也同时让我想起对父母的孝道。上师对仁波切的指导,纠正就好像父母的养育与教导。所以仁波切对上师种种尊敬,服从和我们孝顺父母,关心父母一样。

  35. Shelly tai on Sep 14, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Thank SP for sharing this blog post with us. Our guru show us a very good example to really devoid ourself to our guru because our guru is the only person can teach us the dharma without him we even suffer more therefore in order to paid his kindness for teaching us the dharma we need to transform follow his instruction .

  36. Wylfred Ng on Sep 14, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。 让我们知道在藏传佛教中, 上师依止心是最重要的。

  37. jerry_sito on Sep 14, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    师父总是给予我们很多的开示与教诲

    然而我很感动我能成为师父的弟子,因为师父除了把佛法用非常现代化的方式来为我们讲解,并幽默风趣但却不失庄严的给予我们开示,透过现代化的科技,给予我们最快速与方便的方法来接触佛法

    伟大的上师詹杜固仁波切,用了最现代化的方式来教导我们佛法,但同时却是如此的依循着我们的格鲁传承,传统古老的方式,谦卑并爱护,无怨无悔的照顾着他的上师,把上师照顾得无微不至,对上师谨守的三昧耶,与坚守与上师的每一个承诺

    詹杜固仁波切,用最现代的方式来开示与传播佛法,也用最古老的方式来用身体力行的行动给予我们一个很好的佛法榜样

    感谢师父,祈愿上师长驻在世常转法轮

  38. Andrew James Boon on Sep 14, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Rinpoche has always led by example. There is nothing that Rinpoche speaks from the throne that Rinpoche himself has not done over and over again. The reason why Rinpoche has gain such a large following via the internet especially in the West is because of this measure of ‘compassion in motion’ as I like to coin it.

    In this day and age, people are more skeptical and disillusioned to the point where mysticism just does not cut it anymore and leading by example is the way forward! Such is the humility and skillful ways of Tsem Rinpoche, my Guru!

  39. AdelineTan on Sep 14, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    Yes, H E Tsem Rinpoche served his beloved late guru H E Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche very well. I have seen it with my own eyes during my stayed in Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse monastery in 1993 and 1995, it was exactly what has been described and mentioned in this blog posted by Seng Piow, Tsem Rinpoche is truly devoted to His Guru. Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this article. We should follow Rinpoche’s example to serve our guru H E Tsem Rinpoche in this way.

  40. Julien Roth on Sep 14, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    This is very good. Rinpoche’s effort towards Kensur Rinpoche is amazing and so compassionate. I think all of Rinpoche’s students should be this way towards their guru, to show their love and care towards Rinpoche. To love Rinpoche, and make sure Rinpoche is happy.

  41. Sean Wang on Sep 13, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us. It reminds us how powerful guru devotion can be. We should all take Rinpoche’s guru devotion as an example to the way we treat our guru. With care and respect. When a student shows guru devotion, it helps strengthen the bond between them and the absorption of Dharma is stronger.

  42. Boon (Kechara Penang) on Sep 13, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Thank you very much for sharing this article with us.

    Tsem Rinpoche is a high reincarnation lama but he never forget the kindness that he has received from his guru. He has set a very good example for us by applying the “50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion”in his daily life by treated his guru well all the time.

    Hence, if we’re consider Tsem rinpoche is one of our guru, then we should treat our guru well all the time. Besides that, we should never conduct any action that show disrespectful to our guru such as belittle our guru etc.

    I strongly believe, if we able to apply the “50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion” in our daily life, we’re able to advance in our spiritual and dharma practise.

  43. jimmy tan on Sep 13, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    仁波切的慈悲和对上师的依止心是有目共睹的。不知不觉我认识克切拉佛教中心已经接近三年了。这三年来仁波切的一举一动都然我感受到他的慈悲与智慧。仁波切对待每一个众生都如他的亲生孩子般一样。感谢仁波切给于我们最好的身教和榜样。

    This is such a beautiful story. When Joao found Jinjing the penguin, out of compassion, he rescued Jinjing. He made sure Jinjing has recuperated before releasing Jinjing back to where it came from. Joao didn’t expect anything from Jinjing.

    However, Jinjing remembers the kindness of Joao and comes back to visit Joao every year. Animals may not be able to talk but they can feel the sincerity of human beings. Jinjing knows that Joao is very kind and will never hurt it.

Some of those photos where rare such as the one of HH Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and the Kuan Yin statue kept in Rinpoche’s audience room in Kechara. Well maintained even it’s a decade ago. We are also fortunate to see the sacred altar of Pelden Hlamo in Rashi Gempil Ling Temple in Howell, New Jersey.

    Racism Against Tibetans in America

    When I was sent the article below today by one of my friends, I was not surprised because from my experience growing up in America, I know many people have experienced and continue to experience racism just because of something they cannot change which is their ethnicity and skin colour. So while I was not happy to read what Tenzin has experienced, sad to say but now he knows what it feels like as a Tibetan to be called something derogatory because of who you are.

    What is andagu?

    Today, Pagan is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site because over 2,200 of these ancient temples and pagodas still survive. The Pagan plains, by the way, are only 104 square kilometres so you can imagine how the landscape must have looked with so many monasteries, temples and stupas. The city itself must have been teeming with artisans, carvers, painters and sculptors all working on these holy sites. After all, if people were building the temples and monasteries, there had to be other people creating the Buddha images to be enshrined within.

    What Lama Zopa Teaches About the Dorje Shugden Ban

    FPMT centres today however, no longer rely on Dorje Shugden, on the advice of their current spiritual advisor and spiritual heir of Lama Yeshe, Venerable Lama Zopa. The new FPMT policy to no longer follow the practice of Dorje Shugden is in contrast with Lama Yeshe who was extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden and relied on him until the day he passed. This is something that Lama Zopa himself has previously acknowledged; despite halting the practice at FPMT centres, Lama Zopa said in the past that:

    Kopan Monastery had been performing the Dorje Shugden practice from the beginning, as this was Lama Yeshe’s main protector, on whom he relied whenever he needed help for anything.~Lama Zopa

    Translator Ven. Helmut Gassner on Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden

    As if by some divine plan, Helmut Gassner’s role as the Dalai Lama’s interpreter ended just a year before the Dalai Lama’s ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden in 1996. After having interpreted for the Dalai Lama during a series of events organised by the University for Peace in Berlin, they said goodbye to each other at the airport, where the Dalai Lama told him, “I never worry when you are there as my interpreter.” That was the last time Helmut Gassner interpreted for the Dalai Lama.

    Enlightened childhood paintings by Tsem Rinpoche

    Some of the artwork, which took hours to create, even won Rinpoche prizes at school. For his artwork, Rinpoche used a variety of mediums; some of the Buddha images would be painted and others would be coloured with crayons or magic markers. Once finished, Rinpoche would also wrap some of the drawings with Saran Wrap (cling wrap) plastic and attach a string to them, before passing the images out to friends and relatives to wear for blessings and protection.

    It is great that Kechara Puja House is offering pet funeral service. This will give comfort to the pet owners as they can do something beneficial for their pets. After the funeral rite is performed, the owner can continue to help the pets to accumulate merits by making offerings to the 3 Jewels and dedicate the merits to them.

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

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • 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
