    Great! We have 42 winners now! It means only 20 copies left, but I cannot announce the winners until all 62 winners are confirmed….

    For those who did not email me your mailing address and contact, please do so now regardless you are the winner or not. We cannot send the book to you even though you are the winner and we might give the book to others who provide their address…

    I’m very fortunate to attend the 3days teaching by Rinpoche. We are so scared to be slave of our Guru, in fact, Rinpoche helped me to realise that a Guru teaches us how to be independent, not to be his/hers slave.

    Read it and you will find more treasures there. if you do not have a copy, answer at the comment section now.

    Exciting! Good Luck!

    I am also one of the fortunate ones invited to attend the 3 day historical teachings.
    To sum up, everything which we NEED to know about relational and practical Buddhism , making a connection with a Lama/Guru , having correct views and attitudes about one’s centre / being in one or even starting a centre with correct motivation and purpose – it is all there in Gurus for Hire.
    For those who have taken Refuge , this book will stabilise and
    increase one’s faith in the Guru as embodiment of the 3 jewels.
    For those who are on the path, this book will ensure we are practicing correctly. Only a real Guru can lead us to real or true paths. Don’t just buy one, after reading I am sure like me, you will want to buy dozens to give to others for any occasion.

  77. Jace Chong on May 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    I read the Chinese translated version of Guru for Hire, which is 《遇见上师之后》 in Chinese. It’s a very very nice book explaining in details everything about Guru-disciple relationship, how does a Guru help so you can transform more within a short period etc. It’s a very precious teaching. I like the the Q&A part especially.

    If you would like to share the book with Chinese speaking friends, please grab it! It’s available at all Kechara Paradise outlets!!

    This teaching was given for 3 days and 3 nights. All those attended did not know what to expect. It was only by invitation and we were all squeezed in to a the living area of double story house. When I think back now, I cannot believe we did it! We slept very little, up the next day to continue the marathon! Although tired, when Rinpoche was teaching we paid full attention and there was no hiccups. It was like a real retreat.

    All our questions, thoughts, doubts we ever had about a “Guru”, a Buddhist centre, the students, the people, the politics, what to do, what not to do…all was being addressed by Rinpoche directly out in the open. Rinpoche’s teaching was not only direct but like always Rinpoche makes it funny while stating the obvious using logic.

    This book/teaching is priceless because it is ever green, a very important book for not just beginners on the path but everyone, even senior students. Whether you are wondering about a spiritual path or is already in Dharma, this teaching can be applied to all, at all levels. The best part is you can even use this book as a basis or a guideline for you to start your own centre/group if you have that in mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teaching that gave conviction to so many in the Dharma and will continue to do so now and in to the future.

    And here is also a chance to go back in time, like you were present with us there during this teaching by getting the DVD here http://vajrasecrets.com/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html

    This teaching was the first marathon teaching I had ever attended and even today it’s still giving soo much benefit to everyone worldwide.

    Its for ALL Buddhists everywhere, whatever sect, whatever you go through you will go through what Rinpoche teaches in this book.

    Perhaps you were in Dharma but something or someone came along that affected you to give up. This will ground you in what it really means to be in Dharma, to practice Dharma, to be in a Dharma center, to have a Guru, to take refuge.

    Take a read, it covers all the things a Dharma Book shouldn’t talk about openly but Rinpoche likes to tell it like it is if you haven’t noticed yet.

    Those who can’t read or prefer the real thing the DVD set is just as good!

    Good luck people, I think there are a few winners already judging by the response.

    In December 2006, I was one of the fortunate students, among many others, attended the 3 days marathon teachings which later was transcribed and edited into this wonderful book “Guru for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale” by Kechara Media & Publications.

    This is a must read book that give all spiritual seekers a clear and concise insight into relationship between spiritual teachers, students and centers.

    It has always been Rinpoche’s wishes to promote inter-center harmony and dharma understanding. Thank you Rinpoche and Tsem ladrang for coming up with such a wonderful and exciting idea of winning a book that will answer many of your “never dare to ask” questions!

    So hurry burry and answer those 8 questions above and WIN this book for you or your center. Like jamie said, this book is pure magic…..I agree.

    Should get the CD too (have to buy this, hee hee). There are so many hilarous, heartbreaking and unforgettable moments.

    Rinpoche always give out dharmma gifts for others to learn dharmma and this way of giving a quiz and you get something in return is very seldom. Anyway Question 4 is very intresting, Rinpoche have a few gurus who will it be? Very easy but hard to answer question good luck….

    ”Gurus For Hire, Enlightenment For Sale’ is a really good book by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Everything you need to know about GURU DEVOTION is in there. The book will definitely benefit you and everyone else around you.

    Personally, I have read this blog a couple of times and each time I read it I gain more and more knowledge. Reading this book not only improves our relationship with our Guru but also with everyone else around us. For the very basic, when we respect our Guru, we will automatically respect the people around us as well.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    There is no one that can help us, but us. Methods are given, but whether we grasp, apply and practise it is entirely up to oneself. If we don’t change then there is no point in learning the Dharma.
    A transformed mind is our own best protection. That mind can only come from consistent practice over time.When we see results, we will be encouraged to push ourselves more to practice well.Thank you very much for sharing a good article.

    Wonderful news ……the Chinese government has introduced a plan to encourage and reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, It’s a great move that China has done in the effort to avoid runaway global warming and for health reasons. The climate campaigners has been hoping for it. New dietary guidelines by the Chinese health officials have recommend and advise individuals to limit their meat consumption. As more evidence of chronic diseases such as heart attack, strokes ,hypertension and so forth are related to meat consumption. And for most to maintain a healthy life styles. They also implement dietary guidelines encouraging the general public to consume plenty of cereals, tubers, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits as well. The Chinese government also put up billboards in attempt to reduce meat consumption by highlighting health risks associated with consuming meat. What we eat contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and every one of us is responsible. People nowadays are reducing their meat consumption and opting for vegan and plant-based protein to improve their health . Hopefully more countries will follow China reducing the meat consumption. In a way more animals could be save in the slaughter house. And for the future generations to come .
    Thank you for this wonderful news .

    Different parts of the world have each various interesting traditions and customs which individual will celebrate and follow. Religious festivals like Gadhimai festival, which is an animal sacrificial ceremony, and dog meat festival where dogs are slaughtered to celebrate the summer solstice have gathered cultural significance over the centuries. In Gadhimai festival , they believe that animal sacrifices to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai will end evil and bring prosperity. In Spain bulls festival or the Toro de la Vega, bulls are torture and kill. Same goes to the Pero Palo Festival where scared donkey being dragged unwillingly through the packed streets . Drive hunting where dolphins and whales are caught and killed for their meat. All these are some of the hidden cruelty and crime against animals in the world which many are not aware of it and do not want to know. But with social media , more and more got to know about it and are trying to end all these animals cruelty. The Indian officials are cracking down and trying to stop the transportation of animals for this festivals. It is good that the number of animals slaughtered during the Gadhimai festival has dropped sharply over the years. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year is a gruesome display of the dog meat trade. Chinese officials are doing their best and discouraging people from eating dog meat which is harmful in long term. Recent years there has been a drop in the consumption of dog meat in the China. Many people are aware of the abuses and torture of those poor dogs before been kill as meat. Looking at those pictures in the articles, tells a thousand words of all the suffering of these animals in the moment before death.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this sharing raising awareness of animals been abuse , torture and so forth.

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

    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
