(By Tsem Rinpoche)

These are my Dharma talk in 2006 of over 24 hours which lasted 3 days, I was inspired to reveal and debunk the many myths that surround spiritual practice, Gurus, Dharma centres and all the political games that are played behind closed temple doors. I talked about the ups, downs, benefits and troubles of Dharma centres all around the world.

Tsem Rinpoche

________________________________________

Overview

All you ever wanted to know but never dared ask about Gurus, disciples, groupies, sponsors, Dharma centres, different approaches and philosophies, who’s right, who’s best, why there is neither right nor best, and what it all has to do with YOU.

Through insightful observations, warm-hearted advice and deeply personal experiences, His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche explores what a Guru-disciple relationship is all about and what it means for contemporary spiritual aspirants. He reveals the ups, downs, benefits and troubles of Dharma centres all around the world and shows us how it is one of the most liberating places we’ll ever know.

Touching on a variety of near-taboo subjects, Rinpoche compassionately shows us the keys to finding our own way in the labyrinths of today’s spiritual supermarket, and why the holy journey is still worth every thorny step we take. 

 

____________

 

NOT WHAT YOU MAY LIKE, BUT IT IS WHAT YOU REALLY NEED

What you will NOT find in this book is a rose-tinted, candy-sweetened version of the truth. This particular Guru gives it to you AS IT IS. No holding back. And I had to ask myself why i…t is not laced with gentle, tender words, but HARD, BITING statements. But then I realise that may be that is what we really need right now, at this day and age. There is too much fluff and garbage these days. And they are EVERYWHERE! So, this Lama or Guru’s words are like a gust of fresh air sweeping into our dusty, infested, cob-web of a mind. After all, if we do not make the effort to SPRING-CLEAN our mind and lives, what do you think will happen? Most likely, we would become the very cess pool we are seeking to avoid. So, stop running and hiding. Just turn around and tell yourself, today is the day I take back control of my life. Start with reading this book. This is your first step to total freedom – once and for all!

    I would highly recommend this book/teachings and it is very essential especially for beginners. It’s so important to get the mindset right when you are about to start journeying into so called “mystical” practice. Thank you Rinpoche for these teachings. Also, without the sacrifices of those seniors who have been sitting for long hours in front of Rinpoche, there will not be any teaching from Rinpoche at all! Because of both Rinpoche and the students, I am able to listen to this teachings at the comfort at my own home and at the conveniency of my own time. ?

  2. Jason on Jul 4, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    This was an absolutely amazing video series. I am so glad that Rinpoche shared with us why Guru Devotion is so important. As an American, such devotion seemed like a very strange concept, but Rinpoche explained it in such am eloquent way that now, if I have the opportunity to serve Rinpoche in such a way, I will be extremely grateful.

    Thank you Rinpoche for putting this teaching online.

    • Pastor Shin on Jul 5, 2016 at 12:03 pm

      Dear Jason,
      Great to know you have finished watching the videos. To help you contemplate more about the teachings, may be you can answer the questions below.

      1. What does Guru Devotion mean to you?

      2. What must we check about the Guru before we take him/her on as a Guru?

      3. What are the refuge vows?

      4. How do refuge vows, which seem to be restrictions, lead to freedom?

      5. What are the benefits of taking refuge?

      • Jason on Jul 7, 2016 at 4:38 am

        Pastor Shin,

        Here are the answers to your questions. I will also be posting these on the blog post.

        1. Guru devotion means that I have complete trust and faith in my guru. That what he tells me to practice is for my benefit and to help me on the path to enlightenment. It means not disparaging another persons guru as this will prevent my spiritual practice from ripening.

        2. Whether they are stable in their actions, cultivated in their speech, wise, honest and patient. A Guru should not hide shortcomings and they should not claim to have qualities or abilities they do not have. The Guru should be well versed in the meanings of tantra and the ritual procedures. They should also have great compassion and a knowledge of the scriptures.

        3. The refuge vows are as follows.

        No Killing
        No stealing
        No Sexual Misconduct
        No Divisive Speech
        No Harsh Words
        No Idle Chatter
        No Lying
        No Envy
        No hatred or Malice
        No Wrong Views

        4. Refuge vows lead to freedom because they help to remind you of the things that can create obstacles to achieving enlightenment. When we practice holding our vows we gain freedom because we know that there are not any obstacles that prevent enlightenment.

        5. There are several benefits to taking refuge vows.
        They Establish the foundation for taking other vows

        You accumulate merit on a daily basis
        You quickly attain the full enlightenment of Buddhahood
        You are prevented from falling in the lower realms
        You become a pure Buddhist
        Your temporary and ultimate wishes are fulfilled
        You Purify negative karma that has accumulated in the past.
        You are protected from harm inflicted by humans and non-humans

        May my answers benefit all those that read them.

        • Pastor Shin Tan on Jul 7, 2016 at 11:03 am

          Dear Jason,
          I am happy for you that you have learnt all this knowledge from watching the videos. I will recommend more posts/ videos to you since you are very interested in learning the Dharma and taking refuge.

          These videos are very good introduction for anyone who wish to learn more about Buddhism, particularly if one wishes to join a Dharma/Buddhist centre around the world, and also what to expect/ do about one’s spiritual journey with a special focus on Guru-disciple relationship.

          Have a great weekend ahead and see you on the blog chat!

    Why do we need a Guru?

    Previously i used to think that as long as I follow the scripture or sutra or Dharma books, it doesn’t matter whether I have a teacher or not for me to practice Dharma.
    However, when I met my Guru H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, I learned that it is important to have a Guru. A guru will go all the way to guide and support us in our spiritual journey. He will find all ways to have us learn and practice Dharma just like what’s shared by Pastor Kok Yek Yee that some are asked to take care of fishes on one of the fb post (https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10208585682053747&id=1060057013&pnref=story). I know some students are asked to take care of plants to to train their responsibilities. 🙂

    Different people has different “button” and our kind Guru will push our buttons so that we can learn and train our mind. It is important for us to just follow and do it. Sometimes he may push us until we nearly cannot stand it and at the edge either to change or to quit. That’s why Guru devotion is important especially in the Vajrayana tradition. Once we have checked out and decided who is our Guru, trust & go all the way!

    Thank you Rinpoche for this previous teaching.

    This teachings on Guru Devotion is also published in 2 Books:
    English version: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale
    Mandarin version: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale-chinese

    I got this book from Kechara Indonesia office last year and I found it very beneficial for me as it is explain clearly about the fundamental and importance of Guru Devotion.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing us great teaching.

  5. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Feb 1, 2014 at 3:24 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for the details sharing with us…

    We will keep our Guru Samaya as clean possible to have a swift Dharma path for us…

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 6, 2014 at 1:05 am

    A must read for spiritual aspirants who want to tread the vajrayana path. Rinpoche has said many times he goes on the record for our benefits and there is nothing to hide. Amazing 27 hour marathon.

  7. Wendy Loh on Dec 17, 2013 at 1:15 am

    We all have expectations on how a Guru, Buddhist center and even the Buddha should be. And we love to past judgements. Thank you, Rinpoche for such an illuminating teaching. Here is a video to tell us that we must never judge another person:

    Hope that you will enjoy it.

  8. Julien Roth on Dec 13, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    I am sure that this is such a wonderful teaching. I would love to get this book from my mum and read it. Thank you for sharing the videos and information with us.

    感恩仁波切您的教诲与开示

    尊贵的仁波切总是用最贴近我们内心深处的方式与话语,来向我们教诲与开示佛法,每每听闻仁波切的开示与教诲,总是能突然间地,明白了许多自己的过错与无明,即使我们英文不好,然而在当下,我们的英文却突然间进步了,在每次聆听尊贵的仁波切开示时,仁波切的开示与教诲,就这样非常直接地进入了我们心坎处,我相信这是仁波切用他的慈爱与加持下,为我们的心种下了法喜充满的佛法种子

    感动随喜与感恩的,因为尊贵的仁波切的开示与教诲能够结册成书,被永远地广传下来,让我们可以随时的细细回味仁波切的开示与教诲,从仁波切深入浅出的开示与教诲里,总是能感到一股力量,及一份温馨的提醒,教导我们如何去除无明与不再结下恶因,然而现在繁忙的都市人,总是被灯红酒绿的娑婆世界让我们一次次地迷失其中,每每当我们感到困惑时,只要阅读仁波切的开示与教诲,我们仿佛又被牵引回佛法与尊贵的詹仁波切神圣的曼达拉底下受到保护

    许多人不能够因一次听闻佛法就能够达到明白与证悟,然而只要我们不断地细细阅读仁波切的开示与教诲,并切身地将所学到的佛法运用与实践在我们的生活上,并学习转化我们的心识,让我们用菩提心与正见来造福与帮助一切有情众生

    感恩仁波切您的慈爱与善巧的方式来向我们弘扬佛法,让我们可以随时携带您的书籍,并可以随时打开电脑透过您的博客与youtube学习与分享佛法,祈愿您长驻在世常转法轮

    If only more Buddhists would realize the potential of this book and the material contained within so that more Buddhists would read up on it and use it as a kind of definitive text or root text that all students of the Dharma, particularly those of the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions would uphold. I think the material contained within are pretty universal especially within the Tibetan/Vajrayana tradition so it is not really confined to just the Gelug tradition or anything.

    I think all Tibetan centers should consider this book as essential reading just like how the 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion by Ashvagosha has become essential reading for everyone looking towards a spiritual guide in this day and age. This is not to say that 50 Stanzas shouldn’t be read but as a supplement reading on the 50 Stanzas would be the Gurus For Hire, in which the 50 Stanzas in interpreted according the conditions and needs of practitioners today.

  11. Adrian Cho on Mar 16, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    It was a wonderful teaching and make it very clear for us easy to understanding..

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all this video teachings.

  12. Wah Ying on Mar 8, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I first read the book Gurus for Hire, is one of my most favorite books, but listening to the videos is even inspiring and learning more.

    Either the book (http://www.kechara.com/publications/publications/tsem-tulku-series/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale/) or the marathon teaching videos, is a must read/listen.

  13. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    I have a copy of this book and I love it very much. I love this book for the diversity of the topics and the ease of reading and understanding the content.

    For all who are new to Dharma you will find this book very beneficial. Do get a copy of this.

    Thank you too for the team who transcribed and edited Rinpoche’s talk within a short time span, you can made the precious teachings available to many who did not have the chance to be at the scene 6-7 years ago.

  14. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    This is a very amazing teaching about Guru Samaya. It is also a display of how far Rinpoche is willing to go to benefit others and spread the Dharma, by having a 3-day continuous Dharma talk. It is indeed an amazing feat!

    This teaching can be used to teach people how to properly treat your guru and how to properly set up a Dharma centre and how you must be virtuous when setting up a Dharma centre and not play political games behind closed temple doors.

    The book that was produced from this lovely teaching is indeed an amazing read and anyone should bless their eyes by reading the book!

  15. Sharon Saw on Feb 24, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I loved this teaching which is still a popular book with much positive feedback from Buddhists around the world. Many people who are not familiar with Vajrayana Buddhism are very skeptical of the concept of Guru devotion, seeing it in a negative light. This book will clear all misconceptions by explaining the role and purpose of the Guru as well as the student. It addresses very candidly the many issues Dharma communities encounter and provides guidelines on how Dharma students and volunteers can run their centres better to improve the harmony and spiritual success of their centres.

    This book is strongly recommended to anyone who is a Dharma student!

  16. David Lai on Feb 24, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I think the common misconception about Guru devotion is to offer the Guru physical service in terms of providing comforts,monetary and other physical service like cleaning, cooking and so forth. According to Gurus For Hire, those are very minimal offerings that one offer to our Guru, which is necessary for generating merits but that the actual devotion. Real devotion to the Lama consists of mental and spiritual transformation along with listening and carrying out instructions and advice from the Guru.

    I am not picture perfect in such terms but I have seen many Dharma friends carry these with great aplomb and excel in their Dharma work. I think the success they have enjoyed is because of their hard work, transformation and carrying out the Guru’s instructions with their utmost ability. This is just wonderful way in which many senior students of Rinpoche express their devotion, their faith and their transformation over the years.

  17. Milly on Feb 22, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    I had the merits to attend this teaching. It was a marathon teaching and Rinpoche was not feeling too well. But he still went on to teach us until late at night. Shows us how much Rinpoche loves the Dharma and cares for us. It covered all the mundane and crucial doubts in a new practictioner’s mind. Very realistic and practical teaching which applies to all Dharma centres irrespective of the lineage.

  18. abby f on Feb 22, 2013 at 1:09 am

    The word ‘Guru’ itself is so mystery, and who could be the Guru, how to find a Guru, what a Guru means and etc., all these are something totally new to most of the people. For someone who already has a Guru, the proper way to serve/assist a Guru, the attitude and motivation to serve a Guru could be something new as well, therefore a guild line to tell who, what, how, why (about Guru) is extremely important, because Guru is the one who teach/preach the teachings of the Buddha.

    If we serve our Guru well, we are actually creating causes for Dharma to grow in our region/place, this is because we prepare everything well for our Guru to teach/explain the Dharma to many. Besides this, by serving our Guru, we actually collecting numerous merits, the reason behind is also the same, as we are serving the person who benefits hundreds/thousands/millions of people.

    This teaching also helps us to find a Guru, as in Tibetan Buddhism, Guru is the key in our practice. Rinpoche said that in our era, Guru is important, as we can’t see/hear from Buddha directly. And to find a Guru is a long journey for some, to have a guideline is crucial. Anyway, to be a qualified student is as important as to find a qualified Guru. In Tibet, a Guru will observe a student before accepting a student and the student will observe the Guru before becoming a student of a Guru. This teaching tells perfectly about all these. A must-have book for serious practitioner or practitioner-to-be.

    If you prefer to read, you can also read this teaching in the book ‘Gurus For Hire, Enlightenment For Sale’. To purchase or check for further details, please visit this page: http://vajrasecrets.com/books/english-books/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html

    I remember these talks like they were just yesterday, when we sat for a total of 27 hours in front of these wonderful teachings. A few of us then went away and transcribed all the teachings, edited them and got them ready for publishing 2 weeks after the teachings – a real amazing race… and amazing it really was!

    We did a second edition about two years later, where I had the opportunity to add other teachings on Guru devotion and the spiritual teacher, as well as further edit the first round of teachings. There’s something incredible and new that jumps out every time I have read through the manuscript – something that will sound more strongly than the time before, or the time before that.

    This covers just about every aspect we need to contemplate when entering a spiritual path in this day and age. Whatever that path may be, we will need to interact with our spiritual guides / mentors, the place that we practice in (or no place, as it might be) and the community that we’re practicing with. So this book, really, is applicable to anyone of any religion, for making the most out of their chosen path. Ultimately, the strongest most resonating message to me, throughout the book, is that a real teacher does everything he does, sets everything up and teaches and gives entirely for us, the students; that he wants nothing in return but for us to discover our own inner gurus and to be happy. Could it really be that simple? Yes, it really is – it’s just us that complicates everything else in between.

    • Paris on Feb 21, 2013 at 11:15 pm

      By the way, forgot to add that the wonderful, super, amazing book of these teachings is available here! http://www.kechara.com/publications/publications/tsem-tulku-series/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale/

      We have received a lot of very positive feedback about this book from practitioners of all traditions, who have told us that they relate very well to these teachings and highly recommend it to many others from their own centers etc.

      Please do share the teachings with people in your own centers around the world and drop back here to give us your feedback – how have the teachings helped you? or your center / spiritual community? what did you find most inspiring and helpful in these teachings? We would love to hear your experiences and thoughts too 🙂

      • sarahyap on Feb 22, 2013 at 1:24 am

        I remember reading the book “Gurus for hire,Enlightenment for sale”. That was like 3 years ago when I first read it, and I remember very clearly I finished the whole book in one sitting! (Very rare… lol)

        What made me read the book continuously was that the idea of a Guru-Student relationship was so new to me (at that time). As usual, being born in a family that goes to the temple only once a year doesn’t really expose me to Dharma at an early age, so knowing how the Guru is the key to our liberation… that truly caught my attention!

        If it wasn’t for this teaching which was made into the book by KMP, I would still be lost and not know what Guru devotion is all about. Truly glad that I was fortunate enough to get my hands on this book, it certainly changed my whole spiritual path to a more promising and positive light!

      • David Lai on Feb 22, 2013 at 10:37 pm

        Dear Jamie,
        That was very fast transcribing and editing work! Wow! 24 hours of transcript would have taken me a whole month to transcribe! Anyway, it was a fabulous book!

        I remember once that when I was on a roadshow to Penang, I met someone from a Gelug center there and he read Gurus For Hire and loved it. He said it is so applicable and a great guide for those interested to engage in their practice in Buddhist center. He said he found this statement particularly relevant to him – Rinpoche said that centers with a resident teacher is like a Circus with a lion tamer or a ringleader so the wild animals are tamer and more under controlled as compared to those without a Guru. This is of course not verbatim from the book but from memory.

  20. Joy on Feb 21, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    I remembered this teaching… it was a 3 day marathon teaching and we basically had about 3-4 hours nap and in between dinner and lunch breaks. It was such a crucial teaching for all of us because it answered all the questions that people would normally ponder about or being asked about by people. Rinpoche spoke like it was an interview of Q&As and basically all the taboo questions are being answered from centre politics to how one should treat one’s Guru. Rinpoche address all the questions that no normal monk would ever talk about and has ever talked about really.

    This teaching or talk could be used by any Dharma centre as a grounding rule on how to start up a Dharma centre with the correct motivation and correct attitude and mindsets. We are so lucky to have a Guru like Rinpoche who takes the extra care to teach us all this so that we silly lay people know how to treat one’s Guru and practice the Dharma well with the right kind of attitude. Instead of creating more negative karma by misbehaving, causing schism and wrong view of the 3 jewels, and with wrong conduct where by instead of collecting merits we degenerate. Definitely we do not wish to be a cause of that do we?

  21. Erickksiow on Feb 20, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Love this teaching, Rinpoche did make very clear about Guru Samaya.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

    A beneficial practice to do in our daily Sadhana which I truly love it. I have been doing this Kawang practice daily without miss. It helps to clear our obstacles and purify our karma with the correct visualization. By purifying our karmas as our merits increase as well. When done consistently, kawang practice will remove obstacles that threaten our Dharma practice. It also create conducive conditions both externally as material necessities and physical health, and internally within our mind. Amazing benefits indeed one should not miss. All thanks to Rinpoche to be here in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing this post for readers to know better.

    A précised sharing by Rinpoche regarding the banning of the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden by Tibetan Leadership. Reading and watching those videos will explain all about the ban controversy. Many highly attained Lamas had for the last 400 years, has been relying on Dorje Shugden. But as claim by the Tibetan leadership the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden is evil spirit and a minor practice. They claimed that whoever practice Dorje Shugden will to the three lower realms. All these were not true just an excuse to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice. There were many incarnations of Lamas coming back again and again. Yet the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice of Dorje Shugden. They said those Masters would take rebirth in the three lower realms. Not logic at all. As in this article one could read more prominent Dorje Shugden practitioners of the last 400 years are back again. Interesting read one should not miss.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing

    We are not alone after-all. Spirits or unseen beings is everywhere. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eyes. A majority of people are believers in the existence of some kind of spiritual being. I do believe they do exist. Experiencing their existing in our sleep is scary some sort what happened to Pastor David. Many of us usually experience of feeling like we being touched or feeling pressure on their chest. It’s like something or someone is holding them down. Interesting read this paranormal experienced by Pastor David.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kim 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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story. One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    5 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
