Dear blog friends,

Please take a look at these incredibly beautiful and HUGE STATUES of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout China. I am so amazed by 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

    Over the last decades , China have since built more, huge impressive mega statues around the Chinese landscape. It seem these mega-statues are even more stunning than its towering skyscrapers and indeed very impressive. China is a great Buddhist land, with Buddha statues of all sizes rising up through history. And some of which are among the largest or tallest in the world. China has a long history of Buddhist art and sculpture. Through out history China been a great Buddhist land had built many awe-inspiring, Buddha statues, from been the highest to the largest statues in the world. I wish I could visit and see those huge Buddhist statues in future.

    It’s amazing to see all the great and huge Buddha statues in China. So much effort and time has been put in to build such incredible statues. May the people, land and everyone be blessed looking at the holy statues. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. While many of us do not have the opportunity to visit all these places, viewing the pictures with the brief info itself already very fortunate.

    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 . . . . .

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

        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.

    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.

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

    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.

    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。

    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。

  19. 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。

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. Uncle Eddie on Aug 23, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    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.

  23. Jutika Lam on Aug 22, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    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

  24. Cliff on Aug 22, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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 .

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

    Wow wow wow…incredible!!

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. someone on Jun 23, 2011 at 2:57 pm

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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

  43. 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.

  44. 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!

  45. 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

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

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

  47. 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!

  48. 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!

  49. 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.

  50. 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.

  51. 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!

  52. 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!

  53. 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.

  54. 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.

    I am not surprised to know that trees are good to the human’s body. I remember my grandparents used to live in a village where there was a lot of green, not so much concrete and traffic, they were healthy and seldom sick. I like to live there too because the air was very fresh.

    In the cities where there are fewer trees, people tend to get sick easily due to pollutant caused by vehicles, industrial waste, etc. It is proven that trees are a good provider of oxygen and they can absorb and filter pollutants. Many metropolitan cities in Europe have started to plant more trees and they have a plan to grow more trees in the city for the wellbeings of the residents.

    Malaysia has visitors from all over the world as our country here is beautiful, peaceful and diverse. I am fortunate to be in Malaysia with wonderful friends here too. So many people from all over the world visit our Kechara stalls, outlets and Kechara Forest Retreat in Malaysia. They really are happy to invite Dorje Shugden home with them along with his prayers, photo, poster, mantra and information booklet. Many of them return and or contact to tell us their wishes has been fulfilled when they sincerely pray to World Peace Buddha protector Dorje Shugden. It makes me so happy to benefit others.

    Arya Nagarjuna was a famous Mahasiddha, Buddhist philosopher, and alchemist who was born 400 years after Buddha Shakyamuni’s parinirvana.

    He is known for establishing the Middle Path (Madhyamaka) Buddhist tradition, making gold to fulfil the needs of the Sangha, and retrieving the Prajnaparamita Sutra from the Naga realm.

Recognized as TIME magazine’s “Person of the Century” in 1999, Einstein’s intellect, coupled his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership. So was his passion for Buddhism and its teachings. Today we present you Einstein’s world famous quotes on Buddhism that will be of a great value to understand how much the Buddhism was close to Einstein’s heart.

    An Introduction To The Buddha Form And Iconography

    In this book, Tsem Rinpoche introduces us to a rich range of Buddha forms, providing basic information to kindle our interest in the iconography of statues –their postures, gestures and mudras, the ornaments and the implements they hold. Each one of these is a symbolic teaching in itself. Indeed the entire iconography, colour and pose of each Buddha statue combined presents a path to ultimate enlightenment.

    Everyone wants to be happy in life. Everyone wants to achieve happiness. For an athlete, for instance, his idea of ultimate happiness is to win a gold medal in the Olympics.

    For the glory of a gold medal and a few minutes on the podium with your national flag going up while they play your national anthem, you deprive yourself of the pleasure of nightlife, relationships, fun, going out with friends or even your partner. You will subject yourself to a special and stringent diet, train eight hours a day, sleep early and not stay up. You will stay away from friends and curtail many activities because you have to train and work hard. You have to push and discipline yourself.

    You really have to transform yourself and change your schedule in order to get your body ready in the next four to eight years in the hope that when the day of the Olympics arrives you will be selected to participate.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and motivating article. People can say many things about us but we will know very well how we are and how we are. We should not react to the comments people make on us.

    However, I do agree that we have to contemplate on what people say about us. If what they say about us is true, especially our bad qualities, we have to change. If it is not true, we just have to move on and ignore the comments.

    In “Compassion Conquers All”, Tsem Rinpoche shows how through the practice of “The Eight Verses of Mind Transformation”, this wish for others to be happy can engender a state of mind of supreme love, compassion and altruism. This is the mind of Bodhicitta that wishes every sentient being to be free from every suffering and to enjoy real lasting happiness, and is determined to realise this wish by achieving the state of mind of real ultimate happiness and peace (that is free from every suffering) first, and then helping all beings attain it. This state of mind of ultimate peace and real lasting happiness is called Enlightenment or Full Awakening, where one achieves the qualities of omniscience, love and ability so as to have the power and ability to help others reach this same state.

    John Eaton Calthorpe Blofeld (John Blofeld) (1913 – 1987) was a renowned writer of Chinese culture, Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and Mahayana Buddhist tradition. His literary endeavours had helped in introducing Buddhism to the Western world and inspired many to follow his path on the journey of spiritual discoveries.

    During his lifetime, John Blofeld had travelled widely around China and other countries, visited sacred mountains and monasteries, and met with hermits, sages and great Buddhist masters of various traditions. As his popularity grew, he used his fame to inspire younger writers to follow his path and helped to launch their career by writing forewords or providing constructive feedback to their maiden literary effort. Those who had the privilege to be acquainted with this extraordinary man, remembered his generosity, warmth, and sincerity. Even today, his writing and unique experiences continue to inspire others to the path of spirituality and give insight to the world of China when the refined Chinese civilisation was omnipresent

    Following our habituated way of thinking, the source of whatever happiness we seek from marriage appears to be the picture of an ideal partner. In fact, even as we embark on a long-term relationship with our partners, we already have expectations and projections on our partner. We expect to be happy when our partner conforms to our own set of norms, way of thinking, and expectations. In order to correct this mistaken view, we need to look deeply into ourselves and see that happiness does not come from holding mistaken projections and expectations. In fact, when these expectations and projections are unfulfilled, they are likely to cause us disappointment, pain, and anguish instead.

    Tsarchen Losal Gyatso (1502 – 1566 CE) was a famous master and the founder of the Tsarpa lineage of the Sakya tradition centred at Dar Drangmoche Monastery in the central Tsang province of Tibet.

    The great Tsarchen Losal Gyatso is the 21st lineage holder of the Vajrayogini tantric tradition stemming from the Mahasiddha Naropa himself. In fact, by engaging in Vajrayogini as his main practice, Tsarchen Losal Gyatso gained high realisations and went on to have several important visionary experiences associated with her. Due to his high realisations, Tsarchen also beheld pure visions of Padmasambhava, Vajrayogini, Chakrasamvara, Kalachakra, Yamantaka, other tantric deities and masters.

    This is a very interesting article to know that Mongolian astrology is closely related to Buddhism. Some of us might think astrology is a very superstitious practice but it is practised in Buddhism.

    From the scripture, our body body parts are related to different planets. In a way, it means our body and the universe are in fact one. Therefore, we should respect our environment because if our mother nature has lost its balance, our health will be affected as well.

    The most recent celebrity that was reported to have shown some interest in Buddhism is Katy Perry. People often think being a celebrity is wonderful, but behind all the smiles and the beauty, there is much suffering and pain… We have seen it many times, and celebrities who fail to cope with the stress and public pressure often take up dangerous habits or suicidal. I’m not claiming that I know of Katy Perry’s life and difficulties, but as long as we are all in samsara, we are all subjected to suffering.

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.

    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
