(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear blog friends,

Please take a look at these incredible beautiful and HUGE STATUES of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout China. I am so amazed with these statues and I hope to visit in the future. I wish to pay my respects to them very much. China traditionally had Buddhism flourishing and deeply entrenched into their vast/rich culture for thousands of years. It’s resurging now again….May everyone be benefited by these holy Buddhas.

Share these with your friends. Let them be amazed also.

Much care,
Tsem Rinpoche

Location: Guyuan, Ningxia, China

须弥山石窟第五窟为唐初开凿的马蹄形摩崖窟,窟脚面阔15.4米,进深20米,窟高22米,是须弥山最大的石窟,据《重修圆兴寺大佛楼记》碑载,明成化前窟室就有木构窟檐,楼阁现残留的梁架洞眼就是明证。

窟中端坐大弥勒佛高达20.6米,是须弥山最大的石造像,也是全国各石窟中最大的造像之一,仅佛头即有5米,耳长3米,脚趾依稀可见。古代匠师用简陋的工具在有限时间里雕凿出如此巨大的造像,显示了他们卓越的技巧和雄伟的气气魄,这座精美的造像已成为须弥山石窟的标志令人难以忘怀。

窟内西壁有题刻三则,其中大中三年吕中万一则最为重要。讲的就是安史之乱以后河陇广大地区被吐蕃政权掌控八十多年的事情。由于是时唐帝国已经重夺此处控制权,所以才会有这样一个题记,但也间接证明,大佛应该在安史之乱前就已经完工了。

  2. Marek on Dec 20, 2016 at 11:42 pm

    I’ve been to Lantau, Big Buddhas also in Thailand, Wuxi, other places – questions I never asked at the time at each of these locations – how are the Big outdoor Buddhas kept clean? (bird dropppings, bad weather, etc) what provisions are made to keep them safe? to ensure people treat them with respect? think of what happened to Afghanistan after they exploded the big Buddha statues in Bamiyan . . . . .

  3. samfoonheei on Jun 9, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche

  4. Peter Vredeveld on Apr 21, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    I am amazed to see these lists of giant Buddha statues all over the China, Spring Temple Buddha is one of my favorite. I don’t think it is mentioned in the above lists.

    • Valentina Suhendra on Apr 21, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      Dear Peter

      Thank you for your comments. I agreed with you. I went to China twice before, I was just amazed with their Buddha statues. Even in the most amazingly difficult place to reach – like in the middle of the mountain and the most unthinkable place. These people who created these amazing images must had have great reverence to Buddhist teachings.

      Valentina

      • Beatrix Ooi on Apr 21, 2016 at 8:00 pm

        Dear Peter,

        Thank you for your feedback, glad that you enjoyed the article. However the Spring Temple Buddha is mentioned in the article (3rd picture from the top). To make it clearer, we have revised the description of the Buddha/ place. 🙂

        Thank you,
        Beatrix

    The company responsible for Hong Kong’s 34-meter-tall Tian Tan Buddha and Hainan’s 108-meter-tall Guanyin of the South Sea of Sanya statue are in the process of building more large Buddha statues in China, inspired by the success and profits, at Lingshan Park in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, which features the 88-meter-tall Buddha statue (also featured in this article). The statue helped earn the park more than RMB 1.2 billion (US$194 million) in 2013.

    China has a long history of Buddhist art and sculpture, with the Sui dynasty (589-617) and Tang dynasty (618-907) considered peak eras. But many of the best examples were destroyed along with much of the nation’s other religious heritage in the years that followed the establishment of the People’s Republic.

    Although the newer Buddha statues are to be built for tourism purposes, they are still dedicated to images of enlightened beings, which when seen brings blessings. Buddha statues are also monuments of religious art. The image of Buddha, who was called The Greatest Yogin of all Times, expresses serene quiescence. The harmony of his physical proportions is the expression of great beauty. The required measurements are laid down in the canon of Buddhist art, which corresponds to ideal physical proportions. The perfect proportions of a Buddha, the graciousness of his physical form, represent one of the ten qualities or powers of a Buddha.

  6. Antique Buddhas on Apr 10, 2015 at 9:01 pm

    China has always been the center of Giant Buddha statues wherever they are made. Leshan Giant buddha statue is considered as one of the oldest stone carved Buddha statue.

  7. Hee TS on Dec 31, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    感谢仁波切分享這些宏偉壯觀的大佛像图片,希望假於时日能亲身到各各聖地朝拜。

    Thanks Rinpoche for all the amazing pictures.

    I really do hope tt one day i will be able to sponsor and build such huge Buddha statue for all to see and have the image of Magnificent Buddha imprinted in their mind.

  9. Jacinta Goh on Nov 20, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    Spectacular! Haven’t been to any of these places although I may have seen few of these pictures before. Looking at it again as someone who believes in Dharma now has made it even more meaningful and worthwhile. May it plants Dharma seeds for those who looked at these pictures in this blog.

  10. Edwin Tan on Nov 19, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    Amazing statues!

    The people and the country itself is so blessed to have the Buddha statues.

  11. Pee Bee Chong on Nov 18, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. The Buddha images are so amazing. Will share the images. May anyone who sees the Buddha image receive merits and plant the seed to be able to learn Dharma this life and in future lives.

  12. Andrew James Boon on Oct 2, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    It truly is remarkable how China has literally risen from the ashes like a Phoenix with regards to its Buddhist renaissance! This was unthinkable only a a couple of decades back…

    Now the literally most of China’s landscapes are dotted with these amazing blessed images. These are not mere statues within temples but as you can see, huge outdoor statues that can be seen for miles! Truly amazing!

    Rejoice in China’s spiritual growth!

    感恩仁波切

  14. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    Amazing statues, China are building large and amazing statues and rediscovering their roots. China was once Buddhist for the past two thousand years. 2000 years of Buddhism in the people, land, philosophy and culture. The resurgence of Buddhism is not entirely surprising.

  15. CK Siah on Sep 11, 2013 at 11:39 am

    有大佛像的地方,佛光普照,佛法发扬光大。有佛法的加持,有很好的能量磁场和佛法普度众生。
    记得很多年,在阿富汗塔里班区域里有古代佛教石窟大佛像(Bamiyan Buddha,Afghanistan) 后来被无理的塔里班军队用炸弹摧毁。结果整个国家得天谴, 国家战火连连,人民痛不余生, 叫苦连天。
    至今还是烽火不熄,国家不安定。
    谢谢仁波切跟我们分享世界的大佛像。

  16. Wylfred Ng on Sep 10, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    很有幸可以在blog里看到很多全世界很大的佛像。 很高兴那些佛像还可以保留到很完整,让我们今天还可以看到,有些甚至还有几千年的历史了。 当然我也希望有一天马来西亚也会有佛像进入榜中。

  17. Tong sun sun on Sep 10, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    2005年時我和家人到云岗石窟䢟玩,石窟里的佛像都有一千五百年的历史。进去参观時里面才会亮灯,原因是如果長期照着会导致佛像氧化。石窟里的佛像真的是鬼斧神工。有机会我会旧地重游。

  18. Albert Ratchaga on Sep 1, 2013 at 4:30 am

    As one of Buddhist lineage, Buddhism has been very wide spread in China, they have many temples and big Buddha statues, especially the most renown temple in Mount Wutai, it is located in northeastern Shanxi province, China. The mountain is home to many of China’s most important monasteries and temples. Mount Wutai host over 53 sacred monasteries.

    It is really amazing for someone who can put in so much effort and financial into building these big statues, their dedication towards Dharma is what we should be looking up to, the statues are beautiful no doubt, but if we do not learn from the planner and builders, we are just admiring the statues without any meaning.

    I really wish one day i could go visit all these holy places in China.

  19. Shelly tai on Aug 26, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these grand Buddha statues with us. All these statutes remind us about all the Buddha quality like compassion . When we look at these statutes we feel a sense of peace ,I love Buddha statues.

    As said by Lama Zopa Rinpoche during the constructuion of his huge giant statue Buddha of Maitrya in Malaysia, (the next future Buddha), “Seeing a buddha statue or even if only the picture of a buddha, will plant the seed and the chance to gradually achieve liberation from uncontrolled future rebirths.” According to Buddhist tradition, such as statues provide a uniquely powerful means by which we can bring to mind the positive attitude that are essential to the development of loving-kindness! It is also said they are also used to purify negative karmas of past actions and to develope their positive potential future qualities to benefit the World.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    WOAH!!! I never knew that China had such big and gigantic statues!

    This is totally amazing…. It is great to see that there is so many great and big statues in China and though I have never visited even one of these great statues I have to say that by just looking at the pictures I really cannot how huge it would really look when being there at one of these Holy areas of Buddha.

    Picking which statue is my favorite one is quite difficult because all the statues are amazing… but if i have to choose one it would be the Big Buddha of Tiantan in Hong Kong, Lantau Island. Though it may not be the biggest one I find this Statue of Buddha and the location very calm and peaceful!

    I really hope to visit one of these places soon!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these pictures!

    Rest well,

    Love
    Jutika

    Wow all these Buddha Statues are so magnificently beautiful, I can’t decide which one is my favourite Buddha statue because they all look so beautiful. Would really love to visit Big Buddha of Leshan in Sichuan Province. The Buddha statue looks like an ancient monument. I remember Rinpoche taught us it is good to make gigantic beautiful Buddha statues so people can see it from a very far distance and be blessed as well as the land that falls in view of the statue. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful photos of Buddha statues around China. I hope Rinpoche would be able to visit all of them.

  23. tenzin llhamo on Aug 19, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    Such beautiful and large Buddhas!! Rinpoche is right, its a must visit if one have the chance! I know for sure when Kechara Forest Retreat Medicine Buddha is built, it will look as good as those in the pictures above! We need more HUGE Buddhas everywhere so that many will be Blessed and Dharma to flourish!

  24. Felix Kong on Aug 19, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this stunning huge Buddha statues. Much appreciate that they put a lot of effort and time to build a beautiful statue. All sentient beings be blessed surrounding Buddha area, this is great and so meaningful. I always encourage peoples to contribute or sponsor for build temple .

  25. HelenaC on Aug 18, 2013 at 1:49 pm

  26. beatrix ooi on Aug 17, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Thank You for sharing the informations Rinpoche. My favourite statue would be the statue of Avalokiteshvara Boddhisattva in Hainan Province, Sanya City. The whole environment looks very calm, peace and clean, the statue itself is also very blissful. I hope that I can visit the place with my family, it will be a very awesome experience.

  27. Julien Roth on Aug 17, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    Wow Rinpoche, these Buddha statues are so big and amazing! i wish i would be able to see one of them in the future, that would be nice. But i have to say, my favourite Buddha statue was the Big Buddha of Leshan. I like that one was because it realy merges with nature and i find that so cool and special. Nature is beautiful.

  28. Lucas Roth on Aug 17, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    these pictures are so beautiful and holy. i have personally seen the big buddha at lantau island and it is beautiful. thank you Rinpoche for sharing these pictures.

  29. mitra on Aug 17, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    o my buddha.I was so glad to see all holy buddha . thank you guruji for sharing the pictures.

  30. Chandra Shakya on Feb 18, 2013 at 12:03 am

    Respected Rinpoche,
    Accept my obeisance
    Actually I happened to prepare a book on big statues of Buddha of the World few years back. But I could not publish it somehow. Recently I learned to make an ebook. So I recently published an ebook on lulu.com entitled “Big Buddha Statues of The World”. It consisted of 32 Buddha statues in descending order in terms of size. I did not include Spring Temple Buddha, which is now going to the tallest, because it was not completed then and not much information was available.
    I will keep on updating this ebook of mine with cooperation from all interested. But people have to buy it, so that it would generate some funds.

    Hope I will have your kind suggestion.

    With best regards
    Chandra Shakya

    Very beautiful and super huge Buddha statues to behold! 🙂 They are a huge economy in the world now, and putting some resources towards building Buddha statues would help balance everyone’s spirituality. May the huge Buddhas open people’s heart and move them towards more spirituality in their life.

  34. ruby khong on Jun 29, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing these information. They are awesome. Sadly statues of such stature were destroyed in Afghanistan.

    I have visited the Locana Buddha in Luoyang. There are many other magnificent statues there thats carved on mountains and inside caves. Its a beautiful place and a big clean river flows along these statues. Of all the places I have visited in China, Luoyang where these statues are is one of my favourite. It has a very calming feeling there.

  36. Lim Han Nee on Jun 22, 2011 at 8:52 am

    This ‘collection’ of Buddha statues is awesome and inspiring just to behold! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing it with us.

    It’s gladdens the heart just to see a ‘wave’ of construction of imposing statues in China, signifying, a spiritual revival.Despite the heart-wrenching destruction of statues in the wake of the Cultural Revolution,new and equally or more magnificent statues are now being created. The Chitigharba Bodhisattva, for instance, heralds a new type of ‘artwork’ and ‘a new look’ for a Buddha statue, something in keeping with the times.

    When Dharma flourishes in the great powerhouse of China, as the signs for this to happen are there already,there will surely be a world -wide renaissance!May this come to pass for the benefit of all.

  37. Mic on Jun 21, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    China is going through an exciting rennaisance; a shift from materialism to spirituality. It is about time the Chinese, as a proud and powerful race, takes leadership on exemplary display of compassion to their own countrymen first. On the surface China might pride herself to have many millionaires but all to no avail when there are many more millions destitute, hungry, alone, deperate enough to sell their kidney just for an IPad. Only when people have been touched by compassion can compassion itself starts to breed within the complex social fabric of an ancient civilization that have only recently been seduced by new found wealth. Wealth which innocently disguised as demons of the Three Poisons. Yes, the Chinese NEEDS the Buddha statues; lots of it. However, it is a refreshing start where youth are courting with Dharma. An exciting prospect that will propel China into a powerful nation…..with powerful compassion towards the world. I pray for the day to transpire during my life time.

  38. Andrew Chiam on Jun 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche. These giant buddha statues are amazing and its both humbling and blessing experience to be standing under the buddha’s feet. Hopefully one day, I will be able to travel to these holy places and make offering to the buddha. Rinpoche, I am a great fans for your article on buddha statue/temples and thank you so much for the time and trouble for this wonderful article.

  39. KimT on Jun 21, 2011 at 12:26 am

    A country that went into the heart of Buddhism, destroyed holy places and tried to snuff it altogether is now building huge towers of blessings. It is encouraging. You can’t kill the Truth.

  40. Zla'od on Jun 20, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    This is one aspect of Buddhist tradition that I wish the world could move beyond. The third statue was thrown up as a reaction to the FPMT’s controversial* Maitreya Project, and is therefore slightly higher. If the FPMT changes their plans, I suppose we will then see a “Buddha Race” motivated more by ethno-national rivalry than religious devotion.

    *controversial, because it requires the Indian government to force the sale of farmland so that the project may proceed

  41. Li Kheng on Jun 20, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Amazing statues. The Chinese are very blessed that their country is blessed by the magnificent presence of these images of enlightenment!

    Perhaps the blessings of these images contributed to China’s rapid path to prosperity!

    May more gigantic images be build for China to rise further. May powerful and pure teachings of Dharma touch the mindstreams of the Chinese to sustain their road to long-term success.

  42. Ling on Jun 20, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing! I aspire to visit all these beautiful, magical sites!

    Having visited the very tranquil, serene and very beautiful “Hai Shan Kuan Yin” – Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva on the waters/sea in Hainan Island, one cannot help but feel utterly bless and speechless. Through the kindness of my brother, my mum and nephews had the great opportunity to “Bao Fuo Jiao” – To pay homage at the Lotus Feet of Avalokiteshvara last year – yes we went up to the landing at the Lotus!

    The feeling is most exhilarating for us as my parents, family, have the opportunity to make pledges, contribution towards the building, construction from 1999 … Seeing the beautiful Avalokiteshvara cpmpleted, paying homage and staying at the hotel right there with a direct view – is really wonderful.

    The farmers, people of Hainan – “Heartlanders” have all chipped in, together with many tourists to build what is there and more to come. Hainan Island has had many natural disasters diverted/lessened – like typhoons, floods, calamity. The surrounding areas too have enjoyed peace, harmony, thriving on love, compassion, kindness, understanding and enjoying health and abundance.

    Construction is still on going to have 999 statues ( at the huge hall/gallery of the Lotus ) so that they have 1000 Buddha statues… they really make it happen!

    All the above collective efforts is very inspiring and is something for us not just to think off but to embrace. And yes, it is up to everyone of us to make KWPC real and shining bright too!

  43. Valentina Suhendra on Jun 20, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    My dear Lama

    Thank you for sharing these pictures. I love them, and they are all magnificent. I always feel happy and peaceful whenever I see beautiful Buddha statues.

    I have seen many work of art during my past travels and seen many statues and paintings created by great artists such as Michaelangelo and Da Vinci. But, they cannot be compared with the experience of seeing a serene beautiful Buddha’s face.

    Warm regards

    Valentina

  44. Lester Lim on Jun 20, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    May the victory banners of Buddhadharma flutter all over China soon! Sadhu! Sadhu!

  45. paris on Jun 20, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    How stunning, thank you Rinpoche for the pictures.

    It’s amazing to know how rich Buddhist history is in China and how much it is a part of Chinese culture and tradition…. the Cultural Revolution may have destroyed many things on the outside, but it is heartening to see that there are many traces of this left.

    I’m really glad to see the Chitigarbha statue being built in Anhui province – isn’t it great to see that statues are still being built and restored throughout the country? Looks like even the cultural revolution couldn’t quash the faith and love for Buddhas that is inherently within the fabric of Chinese culture and people.

    Jia you! More buddhas to come!

  46. Thierry Janssens on Jun 20, 2011 at 11:45 am

    These Buddhas are awesome!
    I think of all the tourists going there “innocently” and being blessed, seeds of enlightenment planted in their mind-stream.
    I think of all farmers and passers by that can see the Buddhas from far away and that also receive blessings.
    I think of all the workers and contractors erecting this statue as a “normal job” but creating merits fueling a future spiritual journey.
    I think about the birds flying around this symbolic representation of an enlightened body and creating merits.
    Really, the erection of these statues is not about the Buddhas, it is about sentient beings needing guidance through the Buddha’s teachings. It’s for us lah…
    Wonderful!

  47. henry ooi on Jun 20, 2011 at 11:17 am

    Magnificent, breath-taking and beautifully made statues.

    I find the stone statue at Yungang, Longmen and Leshan, natural.

    The one at Lushan and Lingshan towering.

    The one at Sichuan and Anhui, artistic.

    The Avalokiteshvara at Hainan, serene.

    The Chitigarbha at Anhui, awesome and beautifully set behind the greens and mountains.

    And the Maitreya at Zhejiang, colorful.

  48. mitra on Jun 20, 2011 at 9:56 am

    dear rinpoche all nice statue.my eye so happy to see buddha.thank you for so much for shere.if i have karma sure one day i viji al nice and holy pleces.

  49. Margaretlee on Jun 20, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful pics with us.

    Obviously the time, cost and man power involved in each and every buddha statue of this magnificant size is unimaginable. It is also through the construction of these huge buddha statues that shows how precious the buddha dharma is.

    It is said that the creation of any buddha images create vast amount of merits, the amount of merits is equivalent to the number of atoms the image is made up of. It is also heart warming to know that the Chinese are giving so much importance to Buddhism. May all these accumulated merits help to spread Buddha’s teachings far and wide.

    May our huge Tsongkhapa statue for our KWPC (Kechara World Peace Center) manifests quickly in Malaysia!

  50. benji on Jun 20, 2011 at 8:40 am

    Thank you, Rinpochela, for sharing the pictures – such splendour! I was so glad to see the visitors standing at the feet and on the lotus pedestal of the holy statues, viewing and planting good imprints in the mind!

  51. Irene Lim on Jun 20, 2011 at 8:13 am

    These huge Buddha statues are indeed magnificent! Building huge statues like these creates harmony, peace and stability in the region and also reinforces Dharma. Of these statues, I have visited the Shakyamuni Buddha statue at Lantau Island, Hong Kong and Big Buddha of Leshan (Maitreya Buddha), Sichuan Province. I felt really really awesome when I stood next to them. The experience was exhilarating especially when one visits together with Tsem Rinpoche.

  52. Jerry Loudon on Jun 20, 2011 at 4:37 am

    This is so spectacular, seeing these Buddha’s and Bodhisattva’s of that size helps to reinforce the Dharma. It is great that China allows these statutes to be built all over the country with such grandiose size. Truly magnificent.

    • Nicola Hernádi on Jun 20, 2011 at 8:08 am

      Besides the saying that Buddha statues induce merit, giant size compassion and bodhicitta would be far more impressive. What is the motivation to build them?
      In early Buddhism, they only depicted a flame or a sun as Buddha to show the effect his teaching of the Dharma had on the audience, according Buddha’s words: “who sees the Dharma sees me.”
      Beware of sugar-sweet meaningless symbolism, giant toys for infant minds, eventually only inflating ones confusion.

      • David Lai on Aug 19, 2013 at 7:13 pm

        Dear Nicola,
        Its not fair to judge the symbolism as contained within statues to be meaningless. Most Buddhist traditions that exist in the world today venerate the Buddha images as something sacred and meaningful. Ultimately, what you say is true, the attainment of Bodhichitta and realization of emptiness is far more significant than the creation of Buddha images. But let’s face facts, how many of us are spending all our effort in doing so and have signs to show for its success? Since distractions abound and Dharma practice is at a minimal, investment in Dharma symbolism like giant statues have powerful benefits because they are large reminders of our practice and Buddhanature. This is not to mention the merits accrued and the karma purified in the raising of funds and overcoming of large scale problems that comes with the building such colossal images.

    Queen Genepil (1905-1938) was the last queen of Mongolia. She was executed in May, 1938, by the Stalinist in the attempt to destroy the Mongolian culture. She had a very interesting life story. She was already married but she was abducted to be married with the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu who was much older than her. Her life was a tragedy, she was murdered and she died very young.

    In order to progress in our spiritual practice, we need merits and also we have to purify our karmas. There are many ways for us to collect merits. If we have an altar, we can make water offerings, sensory offerings, torma offerings, commitment offerings and food offerings to collect merits. These offerings are not difficult to make especially the water and the food offerings. We can do water offering daily and offer up the first portion of our food to Buddha to collect merits.

    We are surrounded by many mysterious, supernatural and unseen beings. Watching the video tells all …..negative energy called a spirit do exist after all. I do believe there is .Even though spirits comes in different forms each of these spirits could create harmful effects on anyone who disturb them. Never get involved with them , they could be helpful or harmful or neutral and could get aggressive in some cases. There are techniques or ways to remove unwanted or negative energy by relying upon the Dharma Protectors Trakze.
    Interesting and scary as those young people described what they saw along the road .

    The Lentang Recreational Forest is within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur it is the place to escape the hectic city life and the hot and dusty air. A popular place for visitors on weekends and local and foreign tourist . This rainforest is one of a precious treasures well-hidden beneath Malaysia. . With its peaceful and calm surroundings, there is plenty we can do here apart from having a picnic, a place ideal for family bonding and more catch-up sessions with friends. . By dipping into the protected and cooling water of the stream while enjoying the calmness of the environment and listening to the chirping of the birds. For those photographers, they might discover more unique plants and animals, and even insects. There are many different species of birds, butterflies, and even tiny mushrooms.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    After reading chapter 1

    The background life of Tsem Rinpoche. Interestingly, Tsem Rinpoche was born to a Mongolian princess Dewa Nimbo and Lobsang Gyatso. The couple was unable to build a family she discovered about Labsang Gyatso was a family man. The distress princess was unable to bare her situation left Labsang Gyatso has she was already going to have a baby.

    Before Tsem Rinpoche was born, many wonderful dream made the mother to think about auspicious baby. After his was born, the baby had many attention from monks who actually was impress and recognize his previous spiritual life and was told to send to monastery for spiritual studies. The mother refused has her identity will revealed and decided to get a foster parents before he attend school.

    Life went very miserable for the child, he was ill-treated, abused and was neglected to all his needs including food and care at his foster parents place. It’s heart wrenching to know at the age of three he was often seen roaming all around the street begging for food and back home late just to sleep. Out of some bad times there was some good time for Rinpoche after meeting Kwan Mama. A friend of his mother who took great care of Rinpoche. She was very fond of Rinpoche and wanted to adopt him without knowing who really he was.

    There are many Buddhist practices that we can do to help us solve our problems. For example, the Black Manjushri initiation and practice are helpful in healing cancer and protecting against negative energies. This practice is extremely helpful when we are praying for others who suffer from the most serious and life-threatening diseases.

    Do you believe there is Bigfoot? Tsem Rinpoche is very attracted to Bigfoot since he was very young. In the Himalayan area, people also often talk about the sightings of Bigfoot (they are also called Yeti). The description of the Bigfoot in the America and the Himalayan area are very similar.

    Bigfoot or Yeti is described to be taller than a human and looks like an ape with a very hairy body. There are many sightings of Bigfoot but so far nobody has captured a very clear photo of it. The Tibetan lamas also talk about Bigfoot. It is said that when a high lama meditates in the high mountain, Bigfoot will come around to bring them food or be their messenger to deliver messages to other lamas.

    How much do you need to survive for a week? Ms. Jill Redwood in Australia only needs $80 a week to live. She is living in a house she built herself and her food comes from the vegetable garden outside her house. She lives entirely off the grid with no connection to the power supply. She lives in a very natural environment which is very good to the mind, body and soul.

    The bigger the statue, of course, the better it is. Big statues have been always been regarded as big blessings for the area around it and also the sentient beings that live around that area. Big statues can calm the land and also avoid more natural disasters.

    In many cases, big statues are being built to avoid natural disasters. There is a huge Buddha statue is being erected in Sri Lanka as a memorial to the Tsunami that caused alot of destruction and also killed alot of innocent lives. It is very good for them to erect to Buddha statue there to calm the land and also bless the spirits that might be around from the tsunami disaster.

    There is another big Buddha statue in China which is called the Leshan Buddha statue. It was carved out of a cliff next to a river that has turbulent waters. The river had created alot of problems for traders that sail up the river. After the Buddha statue was finished, the waters of the river did calm down alot which made is safer for anyone to sail in it.

    These are just some an example of the benefit of a big Buddha statue. That is why it is not surprising that alot of the large outdoor statues around the world are Buddha statues.

    Achi Chokyi Drolma is the Dharma Protectress of the Drikung Kagyu. She was one special Dharma Protector and at time of birth there were numerous auspicious signs appeared and her body was of purest white and radiating rays of light. Amazing at the age of 3 she could already reciting the mantra of Tara and teaching it to others. In her later years, she even composed a text containing a sadhana of herself and promised to look after the teachings of the Buddha in general. Her teachings has benefited countless of beings before her passing.

    Beautiful Gwaneumsa Temple on Jeju Island, Korea is believed to have been first built in the early centuries AD’s . Well there little proof indicates the exact year of construction. Wow beautiful pathway to the temples with numerous stone statues and cedar trees planted along the entryway. Passing the cedar trees, is a large statue dedicated to large statue Amita-bul which is then surrounded by descriptive statues of various life-sized statues of guardians. Its considered to be one of the most picturesque entryway and there are also other large outdoor statues. A beautiful place to visit and popular for its colourful breath taking scenery.

    Amazing there many grand statues around the world. There are some of the tallest, oldest, most spectacular, and historically significant statues of Lord Buddha. Buddhism has many different national and local cultures and traditions. Some of these Buddha statues are among the largest in the world. Beautiful and blessful to look at those pictures which paints a thousand words as each pose has a different spiritual significance. Thailand and China top the list of many grand statues across the globe. Big Buddha Statues has benefited many people and the surrounding environment. Such as the Big Manjushri Statues at Mount Wutai, China has attracted many pilgrims over the world . We a group of Kecharians have indeed fortunate to go on a fruitful pilgrimage there few years back.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Mantra is also considered to be a holy item, it represents the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite the mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings can all be blessed by the mantras of enlightened beings. Therefore, mantras are very powerful.

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

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    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

“Food is the only thing that I have been longing for” - a single mother of two who currently living in Kuala Lumpur city. She mentioned that getting surplus food is not a matter of ignorance but a matter of not being able to afford “fresh” food. This is because when it comes to distributing salary, there are things such as house rental and utility fees that have to come before food. With welfare reforms, benefits being cut and sanctions, this marginalised community find themselves looking for a way to get through another day. #Kechara #foodbank #urbanpoor - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
