A Tsongkhapa Meditation

Mar 16, 2016 | Views: 5,621

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

We should meditate on anything we know about Bodhicitta and generate the mind to achieve it. How do we do that?

We start by visualising all the Three Jewels and our Gurus dissolving into Lord Tsongkhapa. Then visualise our mother on left, our father on the right, and all other beings surrounding us as far as the eye can see. Lord Tsongkhapa, the emanation of Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani and Manjushri, is smiling gently at us an arms-length away. He is the size of a thumb and is loving us, forgiving us, accepting us – filled with golden purifying healing and wisdom lights.

First recite the prayer ‘A Song Rapidly Invoking Blessings‘. Afterwards, clear the mind and recite Migtsema while visualising the lights from Tsongkhapa entering your crown, flushing away all sickness, anger, negative karma, negative imprints, bad habituations, lack of self-worth, lack of clarity, etc. All this leaves your orifices in the form of black light, snakes, scorpions, etc into the ground beneath you. Seven levels down, the Lord of Death (usually depicted as holding the Wheel of Life) opens his mouth and happily accepts these.

When he finishes his ‘meal’ from you, your body is light, clear and happy. The Lord of Death falls back to sleep (it is very important to visualise this), and Lord Tsongkhapa fills you with His healing and wisdom lights. He grants you the seven wisdoms; knowledge and bodhicitta is planted. Whatever you visualised from Tsongkhapa, think that the same thing is simultaneously happening to all beings around you, and that you hear them reciting Migtsema together with you. Focus on that sound and clear your mind of all other thoughts. The chanting is light thunder. Focus the mind – it is very powerful to develop powerful concentration using this method.

When you have finished (it is entirely up to you how long you spend on this), Lama Tsongkhapa, smiling, dissolves into a small golden orb of light and enters the crown of your head, goes down your central channel, and then goes to your heart. He melds with your heart, and you and Tsongkhapa become ONE. He implants Bodhicitta, the realisation of Sunyata, and all the 84,000 teachings of Lord Buddha in your mind. Think like this strongly.

Also think that when Tsongkhapa manifests in Bodhgaya as one of the thousands of Buddhas to appear in this fortunate eon, you will be born among his disciples. Visualise that Tsongkhapa’s Omniscient mind, unerring compassion and wisdom is planted strongly in your mind. Then feel light, happy and blessed. That would be an easy Tsongkhapa meditation to do daily and on special days.

Doing Migtsema (Tsongkhapa’s mantra) has many profound benefits. You gain the seven types of wisdoms: quick wisdom, profound wisdom, wisdom of expounding Dharma, wisdom of spiritual debate, wisdom of composition, great wisdom and clear wisdom. Mahasiddha Menkhangpa and the Panchen Lama Palden Yeshe composed 11 different instructions on ritual practices to be done with Migtsema. It has incredible benefits. The 11 instructions are to make rain for crops, gather clouds, cure djrib disease that makes people fall unconscious, avoid harm from weapons, prevention against future djrib disease to arise, cure wind or lung diseases that cause uncontrollable rage and anger, cure physical and mental disabilities, protect from thieves, robbers and enemies, find sustenance, pacify obstacles to growing crops such as insects, and pacify obstacles to traveling. These 11 healing actions can be done for others when one has finished a close action retreat on Migtsema.

There are altogether 108 healing ritual practices one can do for the benefit of others by Migtsema. They are methods for helping sentient beings. Panchen Lama said that the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni!! For those in the healing arts, Migtsema is a very excellent practice. For extending life, it is superb. If you wish to dedicate the merits for your parents, their benefits, long life, health or good rebirth, Migtsema is supreme. For those in academic fields, to increase the good ‘wind’ for learning, mastering a subject or memory, Migtsema is wonderful. For children who are studying, it is also excellent. For those who are depressed, Migtsema is the best for modern stress-related conditions of the mind. Migtsema combined with meditation has so many benefits that it would be beyond what I can post. But believe the great masters, it is a great practice. H.H. the Dalai Lama recommended us to do Migtsema always when He graced Gaden Monastery with His visit.

We should be diligently making offerings of candles, incense, fruits, water, etc on your shrine to Lord Tsongkhapa as a daily practice, it is very powerful. When doing this visualisation, remember that in Tsongkhapa’s heart is Buddha Shakyamuni and in Shakyamuni’s heart is Buddha Vajradhara. This form of Tsongkhapa is called ‘LAMA LOBSANG THUBWANG DORJE CHANG’. It is Tsongkhapa as one with Shakyamuni and Vajradhara; the Three Jewels are ALL COMPLETE IN LORD TSONGKHAPA. H.H. the Dalai lama mentioned many times that images of Tsongkhapa are super sacred. Hence it would be good to have an image of Tsongkhapa and dedicate it to our loved ones, or to have Tsongkhapa pendants to wear for blessings and protection.

Tsongkhapa and His Migtsema practice are very profound, yet simple, yet powerful for the minds of today. It doesn’t require lengthy rituals, initiations, taking vows, or even having to meet with a teacher to engage in Tsongkhapa’s practice. The excellent part is that you can’t go wrong with it even without guidance from a teacher. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can start, maintain, do and receive the benefits!! For our modern, instant, supermarket drive-thru, want-everything-quick minds without danger and a ‘money-back guarantee’, TSONGKHAPA IS THE BEST!

The last series of posts on Tsongkhapa, I dedicate to all my Twitter friends. May you achieve your spiritual goals with ease, direction and great happiness. In this and all lives may you never be separated from the perfect path praised by the Buddhas. May you reach the same attainments as Lord Tsongkhapa following the path set out by the Perfect Tathagata, Shakyamuni in this life and future lives. Tashi delek and peace.

Very powerful as well with the correct visualisation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching.

  2. Stella Cheang on Mar 9, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    Thank you very much for this sharing. I return here again and again to read, understand and visualise the correct Tsongkhapa meditation as depicted clearly here. I read that correct visualisation activates the mind to the possibility of achieving the state of liberation, hence we must take it seriously.

  3. Anne Ong on Dec 8, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    Everyone should get this Lama Tsongkhapa Practice book if you havent got one. It is very informative,interesting and simple enough to understand. I feel more peaceful after starting to recite Migtsema mantra since i joined Kechara. Thank you Rinpoche for publishing this wonderful book and practice to benefit everyone. _/\_

  4. Andrea Lai on Nov 18, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    My first encounter mantra is Migstema. As a new comer to Tibetan Buddhism,it’s quite difficult for me to chant and somehow I got the idea to download it into my computer.I listen everyday and try remember the wordings.

    It has been few months now,and I think this mantra is wonderful and superb.I recite 1 mala daily and it helps me so much in my concentration, mind focus and emotional control.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and it is very useful for me.

    With folded palm,

      Daer Andrea,

      Thank you for your comment and sharing.

      There is a section on Rinpoche’s blog on Lama Tsongkhapa here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/tsongkhapa if you have not come across it. There is much information in there that are useful for beginner and advanced practitioners alike.

      A few years ago, when I stumbled onto Rinpoche’s blog, I learned about Lama Tsongkhapa and his powerful practice for people in our era who are prone to depression and mental illnesses. I thought it would be helpful for me and I learned the mantra just like how you did. The mantra is powerful as you have mentioned.

      I rejoice for your faith in Lama Tsongkhapa and may you attain his body, speech and mind with the help of the powerful protector Dorje Shugden. You may like to learn about the protector here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/miraculous-healing.html.

      Should I be of your assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

      With best wishes,

    According to the great lama, Panchen Lama, the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni. As such, if we would like to dedicate the merits for our parents, for their benefits, long life, health or good rebirth, Migtsema is supreme. We can invite and offer the Lama Tsongkhapa’s image or Tsongkhapa pendants to our loved ones for blessings and protection.

    The most important and attractive part is Tsongkhapa and Migtsema practice are very profound, simple and powerful for the minds. We may not go wrong with it even without guidance from a teacher.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which is very beneficial for most of us especially when we are doing daily sadhana with this visualization.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 17, 2016 at 2:21 am

    Tsongkhapa is truly supreme, relying on Lama Tsongkhapa one overcomes two major obstacles that can stand in the way of spiritual progress. Deep ignorance is overcome by the 7 wisdoms bestowed on practitioners who practices the Migtsema combined with visualisations. Reliance on the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa, one collects vast amount of merits and purification, and coupled with certain long life visualisations one will create the causes to endure long so one’s spiritual development is not cut short by premature death.

    I find this short article on Migtsema, the practice and the visualisation very helpful for people of today. It’s helpful for those doing retreat as well. It explains well the practice, its benefits and visualisation which is simple yet powerful. And I learnt from this article that “Panchen Lama said that the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni!!” – it shows how profound the practice is.

    By the way, “TSONGKHAPA – A Simple Guide to a Powerful Practice” book and the Tsongkhapa Boxset both are very helpful, do not do your Tsongkhapa practice or retreat without reading these books beforehand. It’s helpful, will definitely make your retreat even more fruitful 😉

  9. sarah yap on Jul 1, 2016 at 3:51 am

    Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is an incredible practice that is ‘simple’ and yet gives us so much benefits, both spiritually and also help us in our day to day life. This guide to Tsongkhapa’s practice is one of my go to references whenever I need information of Tsongkhapa’s practice or just to refresh my memory.

    I remember a story of which Rinpoche told us during his years living and serving at Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s Dharma centre in Los Angeles. It was during this time that there was a conference and gathering of all Buddhist traditions, and each tradition was invited to do a short prayer onstage, with many audiences present. Rinpoche, being young at that time though Geshela would do some fancy prayer, but in the end, Geshela decided to do a simple, short, Gaden Lhagyama for the audience.

    It was truly fascinating to hear about this. It shows Geshela’s humility, which Rinpoche often speak fondly of. Plus the effect of performing such a condensed and ‘simple’ practice in public is not only to bless the crowd, but imagine if a new Buddhist was to enter the gathering to identify what Buddhist school he should start learning the Dharma from… perhaps if a more complicated practice was done, a person new to Buddhism would think it is too difficult and too far fetched for him/her to engage in practice. lol.

    Is a blessing for all the students to have H.E.Tsem Rinpoche here in Malaysia to lead us in the teaching of Gaden lineage. Meditation is essential in practicing dharma to tame our mind and to gain wisdom for realization. Thank you Rinpoche to put effort in guiding us in dharma path , sutra and tantra.

  11. Jill Yam on Jun 14, 2016 at 2:50 pm

    Such short and simple yet profound teachings in the many benefits to engage in a Tsongkhapa retreat and recite Lama Tsongkhapa’s Migtsema.

    The best part is that one doesn’t need to have initiations, taking vows or meeting a teacher to be able to do this retreat.

    I have been doing the visualisation during the recitation and it has helped me to concentrate and focus my mind more. This is a retreat not to be missed.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Thanks Rinponche for sharing.

  14. Lin Mun on Apr 4, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. You always present it so well and simple. Very easy for us to visualise. This definately help my doing the visualisation during prayer and future Tsongkhapa retreat.

    It is a blessing for me to be able to learn this practise.

  15. Li kheng on Mar 22, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a perfect practice for the fast paced global society of the 21st century. As Rinpoche accurately described, we have a instant-reward mentality that makes most spiritual and traditional methods of living unattractive. Lama Tsongkhapa is like an all in one practice that blesses us with all that we wish for and protect us from all the undesirable. The practice is also easy and very quick.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was my first daily practice when I started my spiritual journey 7 years ago. I hope that everyone will embark on their spiritual path during these challenging times and open the doors of their heart to a whole new dimension of peace, Joy and wealth.

    Thank you rinpoche and team for this post!

  16. Sarah on Mar 17, 2016 at 7:37 am

    It is a blessing to receive Tsongkhapa’s practice. There are so many benefits. One can practice at a very simple level and one can practice at the most profound level. This practice has changed my life profoundly and I recommend it strongly for everyone.

  17. Stella Cheang on Mar 17, 2016 at 4:11 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for making simple the very profound meditation on Lama Tsongkhapa. Visualization had always been a challenge for me, but through the teaching here, I could began to attempt the visualization in a proper manner. We are very fortunate to learn about the Migtsema practice as it does not require lengthy rituals, initiations, taking vows, or even having to meet with a teacher to engage in the practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the precious info, I will treasure it as it represents the pure lineage of my Guru and the teachings.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful Tsongkhapa meditstion post. I remember Rinpoche also mentioned that Just visualising Tsongkhapa with faith is a powerful method for receiving the blessings of all Buddhas and if we have strong faith, simply keeping a statue of Tsongkhapa in our house will cause that place to become a holy environment and protect us.

  19. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Mar 16, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the explanation and guidance on how to meditate and visualize when reciting the Migtsema that can bring various benefits to all living beings including ourselves. In our current hectic life, I personally believe that it is important for us to engage in a spiritual practice that can help us to transform our mind, purify our karma and generate merits for higher level practice through a condense yet powerful practice such as Lama Tsongkhapa practice. We are truly fortunate to have receive the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and able to follow the practice accurately and correctly with the advise and guidance from Rinpoche. May Lama Tsongkhapa practice continues to reach to all people and bring peace with happiness to all sentient beings.

    With folded hands,

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this amazing visualisation to be done during meditation. I had personally tried this and the result is amazing.

    I have learnt from this post that this visualization combines a few type of visualization into one. It helps us to gain the different types of wisdom with just one visualization. This visualization also helps to lengthen our live as well.

    The mantra Migtzema is a very powerful mantra. It contains the blessing of three buddhas simultaneously, Chenrezig, Manjushri and Vajrapani. It can help us to develop compassion, develop seven type of wisdom, and dispel all negative forces, emotions and disturbances.

  24. David Lai on Nov 24, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for bring this very special Gaden lineage to Malaysia. It has many benefits as Rinpoche had elucidated. It is sad that very few people understand the special qualities of Je Rinpoche and this is perhaps a sign of the tremendous merits needed to practice Lama Tsongkhapa and gain his special blessings. Therefore, we are incredibly fortunate to be practicing and propagating this extremely beneficial practice. And what’s incredible, it comes with no commitment that would entail other practices that require initiation.

  25. Wendy Loh on Nov 17, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    Tsongkhapa practice is highly beneficial to all who simply wish to have a better life. To be more peaceful within. It helps to clear one’s mind of blockages and obscuration that hinder one from seeing with clarity. It is easy to do and when observed consistently, there will be positive changes in your life. Instead of gossiping and complaining, chat Tsonkhapa’s mantra. You will be thankful in the long run that you kept your mouth shut. The world will also thank you. 🙂

  26. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 29, 2013 at 4:02 am

  31. Cliff on Oct 13, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teaching regarding the benefits, power and process of meditating on Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra. Also sharing with us the importance of learning Lama Tsongkhapa. Rinpoche taught me the migtsema prayer since I was young and have never forgotten the words to recite the mantra. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  32. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 12, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this simple yet profound practice of Lama Tsongkhapa The lights that come from Tsongkhapa,as we visualize them, are both purifying and healing and are also wisdom lights. Lama Tsongkhapa grants seven wisdoms – including quick wisdom,clear wisdom, and the wisdom of propounding the Dharma. Knowledge and bodhicitta will also be implanted.

    The lights are also calming, healing and pacifying. Reciting the Migstema can heal us of stress and depression too.

    Hence, Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice and chanting the Migtsema is very powerful.

  33. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Oct 12, 2013 at 1:10 am

    This is certainly a must have book for all of us who is in the Gelug lineage, as Lama Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Lineage. He is the sample and reminder for all of us to gain enlightenment through upholding our vows, practice, meditation and purification practices. Homage to Lama Tsongkhapa, worthwhile to see and think of. May this book brings you ultimate benefits. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great book.

He teaches both wisdom and compassion, giving one the middle path, allowing a quicker way to Buddhahood. May Rinpoche continually bless us and give us opportunities to practice these amazing meditations.

    感恩詹杜固仁波切给予这殊胜的开示与法门,并翻译成中文结书

    每每对修行上有疑惑,只要重复着温习这本书,依循着仁波切的开示与教诲,发现许多心中的疑惑与压抑,满满的都没有了,生活便的更贴近佛法与尊贵的詹仁波切的法喜

    记得我还没有接触克切拉与接触仁波切的这本书与开示时,从小我总是喜欢很多的菩萨,许多的经文,法本,心咒,每每的演变成,见一个佛爱一个菩萨,人说念六字大明咒好就跟着念,人说度母心咒强,又跟着念,人说阿弥陀佛心咒棒,就改成念阿弥心咒,就这样的,发现什么都没学习好。反而心没有很被平静下来

    当我接触到仁波切的这个开示时,发现原来单单的缘悲经,宗喀巴上师瑜伽法,就已经包含了佛陀八万四千的法门,发现一位伟大至尊的宗喀巴大师,就已经拥有了文殊,金刚手与观世音菩萨的力量,那不就是说,您只要专心的修习这殊胜的法门,就已经能得到全部您想修习的智慧,力量与加持了吗 🙂

    我依循仁波切的这个教诲与开示,从今年初开始,没有间断学习这殊胜的上师瑜伽法包括缘悲经,并成为我每天的早课,渐渐的感觉到自己的心更专注了,头脑变得跟清晰了,然后生活上改善了,变的跟有机会接触佛法与能参与更多的佛法工作以帮助更多的有情众生,更棒的是发现当面对一些娑婆世界里的诱惑与烦恼,情绪忧郁或愤怒时,心中都会一股力量告诉自己不能这样,慢慢的更懂得节制自己了,开始发现自己没有了很多的执着,发现烦恼少了,开心了

    感恩伟大至尊的詹杜固仁波切您的开示与教诲,让我学习了那么多

    我会继续我每天的早课并108次的缘悲经,祈愿这庄严的功德能回向给詹杜固仁波切,祈请师父您长驻在世常转法轮

    In folklore, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person appear to the living. Descriptions of ghosts vary widely that exist everywhere depending on the person who see it. Ghosts generally appearing for reasons. These could range from unsolved murders, forced suicides, preventable tragedies and so forth.
    Reading this post has a better understanding of how to solve or rather handle such situation. I do believe ghost do exist after all. To me ,we respect and having compassion for all those unseen beings we so call it ghost. Learning Buddhism and putting into practice, we have the knowledge to deal them. Doing prayers and dedicate to them to relief their sufferings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    So touching reading article again. Lama Yeshe a rare attained being indeed giving inspiration to many , leaving a legacy . He was one of the most beloved Tibetan Buddhist masters of the late twentieth century. He was co-founded Kopan Monastery (1969) and the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (1975). He followed the Gelug tradition, and was considered unconventional in his teaching style. He is legendary pushes people’s buttons in his teaching similar to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings . All the pushing is for the students to be better in life. We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche at Kechara Forest Retreat , Malaysia . Many of us have benefited from Rinpoche’s teachings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting stories behind of this Tsem Ladrang – The House of Devotion at Gaden Monastery . Established and sponsored by Rinpoche’s birth father, Lobsang Gyatso. Tsem Rinpoche offered Tsem Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche his teacher after leaving for Malaysia as advice by Kensur Rinpoche who was affectionately known as ‘the bodhisattva abbot’.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    Interesting read of Dr R Nyamaa ‘s biography. Dr R Nyamaa been the very first Mongolian woman doctor of bone tuberculosis. She is a multifaceted woman who works to empower herself and empower others. To be a doctor at those days is definitely brave and courageous. A great teacher having brought many changes to the medical world, introducing many new initiatives and practices in the field of training and treatment. She did published more than 60 articles in research reports, edited 4 manuals and 4 textbooks for students and doctors. She held several post and had received many rewards for her work in medical fields. She continued to serve at the First State Medical Centre till her retirement. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Before reading this post I used to think witches are women wearing black and pointed hats having evil or wicked magical powers. They practice and believes to have supernatural skills and abilities such as the casting of spells. Interesting read of this post very informative indeed. I understand better now the role of witches and they have nothing to do with worshipping something negative. Many people have a lot of misconception regarding witches in fact. Through history and long ago they have been prejudiced but not now many came to realise they deserve understanding and respect. Clear and detail explanation watching those videos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The lady in red is all about stories of what happened to the two robbers arriving at doorstep of an old but regal inn named Redgrave Inn. Tragedy then befallen on one of the robbers Gareth. As they were checking in the attic for the night they saw a painting of a lady in a red gown feeling sad. Having misunderstandings the other robber Joseph left. Strange indeed Gareth went missing nowhere to be seen. Months later Joseph still could not make sense of what really happened went back to get the whole history of this strange lady in red. Interesting the paintings which Joseph saw now the lady in red is with his friend Gareth . Recording to the former owner then there’s many strange things had happened at Redgrave Inn before Gareth’s disappearance. Sound scary but interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    Beautiful and inspiring story which will touch the hearts of many . Been growing up in a family who against Tem Rinpoche for practicing Dharma is really hard and difficult one could imagined. How Rinpoche had the determination and will power to over come those obstacles he endured . Choosing his family and choosing Dharma , Rinpoche choose the later. Nor matter what happened Rinpoche somehow managed to practice Dharma under H E Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin his first Dharma teacher. It was because of Kensur Rinpoche that Rinpoche stayed with Geshe-la, studied under him before going to India to become a monk. Not only that later meeting root guru H H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.
    After years visiting Rashi Gempil Ling,the temple of Rinpoche’s childhood again and not been able to enter to temple Rinpoche offered prayers and three prostrations on the sidewalk remembering his guru’s kindnesses. Bittersweet moment Rinpoche felt not able to visit the temple again .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

    The three values of Olympism are excellence, friendship and respect. About coming together in the spirit of sportsmanship, the competition between countries from all over world. It wasn’t just the athletic ability, it was their moral courage competing in the Olympics as a once in a lifetime opportunity for them.
    Olympic hurdler, Liu Xiang from China a sporting idol had won after China’s first ever male track and field Olympic gold medal. In the last Olympics due his recurring injury had forced not able to perform well. Despite crashing on the first hurdle he continued with much pain hopped onto the track, kissed his final hurdle before he made it to the finishing line. His courage and determination had won the heart of many in the stadium and back home. He had showed an example of good sportsmanship and being able to lose gracefully.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    An animal testing is known as testing of live animal in any scientific experiment. A live animal is likely to suffer pain, distress and lasting harm in the procedure . Animals used in laboratories are deliberately harmed, and are usually killed at the end of the experiment. It is cruel and inhumane to experiment on animals, that alternative methods available to researchers can replace animal . I am sure there are other methods as now the world is so advance in their technology. Animals should not be used in research or to test the safety of products. Thankfully, the development of non-animal methods is growing, and fast. Due to innovations in science, animal tests are being replaced in areas such as toxicity testing, neuroscience and drug development.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these animals testing which should be banned.

    When we see the world through serene eyes, we generate peace wherever we go. A message of peace, respect and love towards others is at the heart of all of the major world religions. Listen with the intent to understand, be helpful, caring to others nor matter what race and religion or faith. Glad that a dialogue between Catholic and Buddhist religious and social action leaders coming together at Vatican. All participants living in America from New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and so forth .
    Religion is about increasing peace and harmony in the world. … People of all different religions should be given the opportunity to pursue good in their own way. Quoted Aung San Suu Kyi
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful news.

    All suffering is in fact the result or fruit of negative emotions such as attachment, greed, jealously, pride, anger, and hatred. The five afflictive emotions are the source of suffering. Pride leads to unhappiness in long run. Letting go of these instead of clinging on to it will lead us to nowhere. A profound teachings …….as quoted The letting go is from clinging on to the afflictive emotions, the anger, jealousy, feelings of unjust treatment, which all stems from our self-cherishing mind. Remembered the kindness the Guru has shown us and what we will never give up nor matter what happened. I am still plenty to learn.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Joy Kam for this sharing.

    Heard stories from senior students of Rinpoche about assignment that had changed their lives. Reading this post tells us more through the eyes of Joy Kam. Some understandings learned from it. The little assignments which many have taken it for granted actually helps to change our karmic situation. Rinpoche wanted us to realize later on but not now from a particular assignment. What Rinpoche did there is always a reason behind it which many might not understand till later on. Rinpoche knows best, always cares for everyone and help us to improve, grow in our spiritual path. And also helped us to purify certain karma . Interesting read
    Thank you Rinpoche and Joy Kam for this sharing.

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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
