NEW: OFFERING OF MONK ROBES!

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Phng Li Kim, CEO of Kechara Media & Publications)

* For the Chinese translation, click here.

In 2006, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche led 63 pilgrims to offer 3,000 Manjushri statues and full sets of robes to 3,000 monks of Gaden Monastery, the main monastery of the Gelugpa school in South India (video below). It is extremely meritorious to offer robes to monks. Many monks in the monasteries only have 1-2 sets of robes, a bag and a few books as part of their personal possessions.

The 3-piece monk/nun robe that they wear every day symbolises their renunciation from all worldly pleasures. It also represents the vows and commitments that the ordained monk/nun holds.

I’m very happy to be to share this with Rinpoche’s friends and students, that Kechara will be letting everyone have the blessed opportunity to offer monk/nun robes to the sangha. Now with Chinese New Year coming up, it is most auspicious to offer in order to set a spiritual tone for the rest of the year! Of course robes should be offered all year round and on many special occasions. For example, birthdays, Kuan Yin Days, Saga Dawa, Wesak Day, Tsongkhapa Day, Dakini Day, Guru Rinpoche Day, or on your parent’s birthdays.

Please feel free to read up on the write-up below to find out the benefits of offering monk robes and how to offer!

We at Kechara House are always looking for opportunities to support the sangha, help you generate spiritual luck/merits and to bring Dharma to many. It is our great pleasure and honour to be able to provide robes and necessities to sangha members. Remember, this is an on going event we can offer again and again.

Thank you!

Offering robes

Robes are the clothes of a monk or nun (the Sangha). They are considered to be one of the most holy belongings of an ordained person, as it shows their dedication to the spiritual path and their love for the welfare of mother sentient beings.

The essential set of Tibetan Buddhist monk robes consists of three pieces which are:

  1. Donka: a shirt with cap sleeves. This can be fully maroon in colour with blue piping, or maroon and yellow with blue piping
  2. Shamthap: a maroon skirt
  3. Zen: an outer maroon shawl to cover the Donka

 

For the ordained person

The tradition of wearing robes has been passed down from the founder of Buddhism, Shakyamuni Himself. Wearing the robes represents the vows and commitments that an ordained person holds. In other words, the robes represent the Vinaya, which is the root of all of Buddha’s teachings.

The Buddha taught that by holding the vows of the Vinaya, monks and nuns take on the responsibility to benefit others with the Dharma. Wearing the robes reflects the commitment of an ordained person to bring happiness and comfort, and to relieve the sufferings of sentient beings. So every day a monk or nun continues to don the robes and hold their vows is another day they create immeasurable merit for themselves and their sponsors.

When we offer items such as robes to the Sangha, our support for them creates the causes for the Dharma to remain. In making sincere offerings, we also create the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves.

For you, the practitioner

Through the virtue of the monks upholding their vows and helping sentient beings, the ordained Sangha become a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace.

When we offer items such as robes to the Sangha, our support for them creates the causes for the Dharma to remain. In making sincere offerings, we also create the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves.

Thus, to seek help for and to sponsor the Sangha creates immeasurable positive results for both our secular and spiritual life – the happiness and fulfillment we gain from making such offerings is unmatched to the results of any other altruistic contributions we can otherwise make.

Please join us in supporting the Sangha of Gaden Monastery through the works of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. It is due to the kindness of these holy monks and nuns that we are able to receive the Dharma today. Sangha members commit their lives to following the path of the perfect Buddha by putting others’ needs above theirs.

Join us in creating the causes for the growth of Dharma, and for the happiness and peace that you will gain in your own lives.

今日就供养袈裟!

(詹杜固仁波切和克切拉媒体出版社执行长方丽金撰写)

 

2006年,尊贵的詹仁波切带领63位朝圣者到南印度的格鲁派主要寺院——甘丹寺 (请观看以下视频)供养3000尊文殊菩萨像和全套的僧衣袈裟予3000名甘丹寺僧人。对在家人而言,供养僧衣袈裟能使我们获得无量的功德。寺院里许多僧众所拥有的,仅是一两件袈裟、一个袋子和几本书籍。

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切和克切拉全体同仁供养年幼僧人文殊像和袈裟

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切和克切拉全体同仁供养年幼僧人文殊像和袈裟

僧众们每天身穿的三件僧衣袈裟,象征着他们放弃所有世俗的欢乐,同时也代表着僧众们持守的戒律和誓愿。

我很高兴能与仁波切的朋友及弟子们分享这一件事——克切拉将让人人都有供养僧众们袈裟的殊胜机会。在农历新年来临之际做供养, 为接下来的365天讨个殊胜的彩头是最殊胜不过的事了。当然我们能在全年中及多个特别的日子供养袈裟,例如生日、观音诞、萨嘎达瓦节、卫塞节、宗喀巴日、空行母日、莲花生大士日、或者我们父母的生日。

我们为您列出供养袈裟的利益,以及做供养的方式。

在克切拉,我们一直寻求供养僧众、协助您累积功德,以及将佛法弘扬十方的机会。我们非常高兴和荣幸能够给僧众们供养袈裟及必需品。别忘了这是持续性的项目,我们可以不断地给僧众们做供养。

 

谢谢!

供养袈裟

袈裟是僧人或僧尼(僧众)的衣服。他们被公认为出家人最神圣的物件之一,因为它显示了他们对修行的奉献和他们对众生福利的慈悲关怀。

藏传佛教僧众的基本三件僧衣包括:

  1. 僧服 (Donka):有帽袖的衬衫。这可以是褐红色以及蓝边,或褐红色以及黄边
  2. 僧裙 (Shamthap):褐红色的裙子
  3. 袈裟 (Zen):褐红色的披肩,覆盖东卡

 

对于受戒的人

穿袈裟的传统自佛教创始人释迦牟尼佛一直流传下来。身着袈裟代表一位出家人持修的戒律和誓愿。换句话说,袈裟代表毘奈耶(律),即是所有佛陀教诲的根本。

佛陀阐明通过戒律,僧众负起通过佛法造福他人的责任。穿袈裟反映一位出家人为众生带来宽慰和安乐,以及救度受苦众生的誓愿。所以僧人和僧尼每一天继续穿上袈裟以及维持他们的誓言,那就是为自己和他们的施主创造无量功德的一天。

当我们为僧众供养袈裟,我们的护持制造了佛法长久住世的善因。以虔诚之心做供养,将会为我们带来世俗和灵修生活的富裕。

当我们为僧众供养袈裟,我们的护持制造了佛法长久住世的善因。以虔诚之心做供养,将会为我们带来世俗和灵修生活的富裕。

对于修行者

通过持戒和帮助众生的美德,僧众们成为寻求精神慰藉人们的激励者。

当我们为僧众供养袈裟,我们的护持制造了佛法长久住世的善因。以虔诚之心做供养,将会为我们带来世俗和灵修生活的富裕。

因此,为僧众寻求协助以及布施僧团,将为我们的世俗和精神生活创造不可思议的成果—从供养中得到的法喜和满足感,是在其他世俗慈善事业中所得不到的。

请加入我们,通过詹杜固仁波切的佛法事业支持甘丹寺僧众。我们今天能够听闻佛法也是因为神圣的僧众们的慈悲。僧团奉献生命跟随佛陀的脚印以及把别人的需要放在第一位。

请参与我们延续佛陀教法、广种福田的善举。

  1. Stella Cheang on Dec 25, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche and Kechara, for this great opportunity for us to make offerings to the sangha community. It is extremely meritorious for lay people to contribute to the sangha community because the monks and nuns are steadfast in holding their vows, putting others ahead of them and committed to following the path of the Dharma. By doing so, they preserve Buddha’s Dharma, and the rest of us get to benefit from these great teachings from the Buddha.

  2. Charlene on Aug 22, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    Donation for robes really creates a lot merits.

  3. Charlene on Aug 22, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    It really a good donation for the robes. It cretes a lot merits.

  4. Alice Tay on Jan 12, 2017 at 9:51 pm

    We will continue to take rebirth for countless lifetime which is definitely will face many problems and sufferings due to our ignorance, desire and attachment in samsara. By learning dharma, we learn to accept, tolerance, integrity and many more qualities which help us to overcome our problems and reduce sufferings too.

    Thank you for sharing this meaningful article so that we can understand there are so much benefits to make the offering of monk robes. This gave us opportunities to support for the monks, creates the causes for the Dharma to remain as well as creates the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves.

    This makes me think of Rinpoche’s quotes before:
    “In life, it’s not what you take or get or receive, it’s what you give.”
    We should contribute more in dharma while we still can.

  5. Mingwen on Nov 20, 2016 at 1:53 am

    Simply aspiring! So much efforts, cares and love to the Gurus, Buddhas, Dharma and Sanghas. The practice of making sincere offerings to the 3 Jewels must be enforce because it helps to turn the wheel of Dharma and it’s going to benefit numberless of sentient beings.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara.

  6. chris chong on Jul 24, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Thank you for sharing this information here. Due to Rinpoche’s compassion, we are given the opportunity to offer robes to the sangha community. Making robe offerings is so meritorious and precious because it provides a basic necessity for the sangha to continue their practice without the need to worry over it. Thank you Rinpoche for this chance to make connection with sangha and dharma. Otherwise it would be difficult for us to make robe offering since Gaden is a far away place from Malaysia.

  7. samfoonheei on Jun 17, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    Thank you for sharing this information about offering of robes.I could understand better now after reading.We are given the opportunity to collect merits by offering robes to the Sangha.
    Thanks again Rinpoche and Li Kim

  8. Yeo Kwai Gin (Kuantan) on Nov 25, 2015 at 1:10 am

    谢谢仁波切和Li Kim !

    谢谢你们那么清楚的讲解关于袈裟和其种类 ! 让我更清楚的明白供养袈裟的功德和袈裟对一位僧人的含义与重要性 !
    在还未参与克切拉佛教团体时, 我对供养僧人, 供养佛菩萨, 献花, 献酥油灯等等供养, 都一知半解, 要感谢詹仁波切在马来西亚创办克切拉佛教团体, 提供各种的佛法开示和上师的部落格这平台, 让我更加容易和方便的寻找之前对供养的疑问 ! 也让我了解供养袈裟的吉祥日子 !
    希望大家也可以藉此机会, 为自己或心爱的人做供养, 累积功德, 以虔诚之心做供养,会为我们带来世俗和灵修生活的富裕, 还可以为帮忙僧人救度受苦众生 !

    愿上师健康长寿, 常转法轮, 吉祥如意 !

    感恩合十

    small pieces of cloth so important every fibre every stitch, we can not change the past nor can we change any word that was spoken however David i ask in humility why was the last pope made a saint at a time when boys were being entered with long probus? David it is also happening in Buddhist monestaries ask the Kalu Rinpoche? The sogyal rinpoche has lots to report with bi bi , turning a bling eye now is unsatisfactory

  11. jerry_sito on Sep 8, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    感谢师父詹杜固仁波切

    因为倘若没有师父,给予教诲与开示 ,并成立了克切拉佛教中心,我们就没有机会对佛法了解的更深,在我还没接触到克切拉与师父时,完全不明白与了解,原来供养僧侣是有着如此殊胜的功德的,并且师父成立了不同的部门,更是让我们轻而易举的方便,马上能有供养僧侣的机会机缘,并且提供了不同的选择给我们,即使我们不是很有能力,但依然能从小的供养开始,我相信只要带着很好的发心供养,也能为我们种下一个很深的佛法印记与种子

    感谢师父,祈愿师父长驻在世,常转法轮

  12. Felix Kong on Feb 27, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Offering robes to Sangha is back … Don’t miss this chance ,this is so meritorious .Everyone bought new shirts for celebrate New Year , monk/nun also need new shirt too . Is time to sponsor monk robes for Sangha now .

  13. Kong on Feb 23, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Thank you very much for the sharing of this precious info. Making offering to the sangha is so meritorious and I truly love it very much. We need Dharma, Dharma needs us.

  14. Paris on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Rinpoche said this to us the other day, about the powerful lives and dedication of monks and nuns:

    “Everything you have, the monks don’t have, but they have everything you want – peace, happiness, respect”.

    It is so true – that they have none of the attachments we hanker after our whole lives – money, reputation, power, relationships, material things. And yet, they are happier than we ever are. When they have so little but give so much back to the world in their every meditation, action, speech and thought, it can only be something tremendously powerful for us to support this. They ask for nothing from us and by sponsoring just one of their most basic needs of clothing (or food, or shelter, or education), we make it possible for them to worry less about the mundane and more about creating waves of these powerfully positive energies that every single being in this world needs. If we keep saying we can’t be like them, then at least make it possible and easy for them to continue their practices and find incredible success in it. How fortunate we are in these times that even when we don’t want to do it, there are still opportunities for us to support it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for forever finding ways for us to connect to these enlightened beings, thoughts, actions.

  15. Soon Huat on Feb 19, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for giving us opportunity to make Robes offering to our fellow lamas of our mother temple, Gaden Monastery. Besides the benefits we will get by offering the robes, it is the best way for us to show our deepest respect to our Fellow Lamas of our mother temp, Gaden Monastery, for their commitment in the spiritual path as well as to spread the Buddha’s teaching to benefit others. I will play my part to offer a set even though I have only have a few sens in the pocket.

  16. Andrew chiam on Feb 19, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Thanks for the sharing. No doubt it will change the way to spend our money to splurge on virtuous deeds,benefit people in needs and collect merits along the way.Thank You.

  17. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 16, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    The way I see it is that this dedicated spiritual practitioners and seekers of the truth vow not to be distracted to achieve the highest goal any being can ever strive for. Which is Buddhahood. Becoming a Buddha is becoming the champion of the universe, A champion against ignorance, a beacon of light for those who struggle amidst the waves and storms of samsaric existence.

    Buddhas led many beings from the dark into the light, but Buddha was once a practitioner like these monks and nuns who have sworn to be undistracted in their practice. How courageous for them to swim against the norm and convention.

  18. Milly on Feb 15, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    Rinpoche had related stories of some monks who have only one set of robes. So when the robes are being washed, the monk will not be able to attend classes or prayers and will stay in his room as he has no other set of robes to wear. Hence it is very good and meritorious that we offer robes to the Sangha. Without their Dharma teachings, we will never have the opportunity to study and practice Dharma. Rinpoche has kindly initiated many projects for us to contribute to help us collect merits. Thank you Rinpoche.

  19. Junior on Feb 14, 2013 at 11:26 am

    Thank you very much for sharing this precious information.

  20. Davin on Feb 14, 2013 at 12:38 am

    Thank you very much Li Kim for sharing this precious information. We are so fortunate to know about these auspicious day now. Rinpoche has so kindly give us the golden opportunity to collect merits by making offering to the Sangha. Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this meritorious opportunity.

  21. William on Feb 13, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    This is another opportunity for us lay people to collect merits by offering robes to the Sangha in Gaden Monastery in India. For some of us, we may not be able to do so ourselves, but now Kechara has provided this service for us. This is one of the ways we can support the Sangha to continue their work in spreading the Dharma to people and bring happiness to all.

    I have also taken this opportunity to offer robes to the Sangha and I know that I will continue to do so whenever I have the means to do so. Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kim.

  22. June Tang(KH JB) on Feb 11, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    Thnak you Rinpoche and Li Kim to sharing this wonderful news to all of us .We must grab this golden opportunity to make offerings to monks in monasteries at the different auspicious day ! I definitely
    will sponsor to this great cause ,May all the sanghas continue to turn the Dharma Wheel !!

  23. Albert Ratchaga on Feb 11, 2013 at 11:26 am

    It is not easy for Malaysian to offer robe to Sangha, because in Malaysia, we are not exposed to this type of offering, what we used to know is only to give money, money and money… It is the most fundamental thing, but how many of us know that we can actually offer other thing to the monks? and in fact, we should offer more than just money to the Sangha.

    Offering Robe to the Sangha is very Meritorious because we are creating the cause for the Dharma to continue to flourish, to create a cause for the Dharma to remain here for a very long time, so we can continue to learn and practice the Dharma.

    It is because of Tsem Rinpoche, he brought these knowledge to us, he teaches us Dharma and how to collect more merits so we can practice Dharma longer.

    非常高兴克切拉给信众们带来这样宝贵的机会。供僧是一个非常殊胜的举动,供养僧袍尤其重要。僧袍除了是出家人带着出离心,远离世俗一切烦恼的象征外,更是替僧侣遮风挡雨、免于日晒雨淋的衣服。僧袍对僧人而言是非常重要的。因此能供养僧袍,那是殊胜不过的。

    我认识的几个同修告诉我,当他们到印度朝圣时,到了某个寺庙,他们都会买多件僧袍做供养。他们说那是一个必要。我们常想自己应该在一些“大日子”再做供养,其实不然。我们随时都能供养,如果天天都能做供养,那岂不是天天都是好天、大日子?纵使真是这样,以上也为我们列出了佛教中的大日子。从1月份直至12月份,总有一些日子适合我们做供养。因此,供养不必选定日子,行善也不必等明天,做个好人更应该立即就做。活在当下,就是这样。

    The monk robes may appear to be simple, but the vows and commitments that comes with it definitely isn’t! After reading this post, I understand better now the significance of the robe and what it means to offer them. How fortunate for us to be able to offer robes and generate merits. Rinpoche is so kind to let us have this rare opportunity to do another type of offering! Thank you Li Kim and the people Kechara for organizing such a great cause and making it easier for us to make the offering!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  26. sweekeong on Feb 11, 2013 at 12:33 am

    Wow! This is such an amazing and rare opportunity to give something useful to the sangha community. One collect tremendous amount of merits because we free them up from spending extra time to wash and clean the robes because of having not enough robes. Now the monks are well provided for they have more time to focus on their main spiritual practice and can attain realization of Dharma faster and thus be able to teach the Dharma to the community. Ultimately it is a form of support to sangha for them to continue to exist and for the Dharma to grow, Dharma to be taught to everyone and for us to be able to receive it now and in the future.

  27. tension llhamo on Feb 10, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Love it! Such an interesting offering. You don’t even have to purposely walk into a temple to sponsor. It can even be done in some of Kechara departments at your comfort. Come to think of it… I want to sponsor a set every month and dedicate the merits to my family and friends. Thank you Li Kim for this wonderful update!

  28. Andrew Boon on Feb 10, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    What an auspicious start to the Lunar New Year! Making offerings to monks is a common practice in the East and in Buddhist nations. How wonderful and meritorious that we can now contribute to such an age old tradition, right here in our own backyard!

    The response has been amazing so far… Wonderful way to start the year!

  29. Lim Han Nee on Feb 10, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    Wow, the 1st day of Chinese New Year, that is 10 February, is doubly auspicious! It’s not only Chinese New Year, but it is also the day Maitreya Buddha was born! Giving robes to the Sangha on this and other days of Chinese New Year brings tremendous merits.

    Monks’/Nuns’ robes symbolize the many vows and commitments that they hold. When we offer robes to the monks, our support for them creates the causes for the Dharma to remain. It creates causes for the Sangha to continue to grow ; and this in turn allows them to remain and to continue to turn the Wheel of Dharma.

    What a happy coincidence that I honored my pledge to offer a set of monks’ robes to the Sangha on the first day of Chinese New Year. May it be dedicated to my parents’ swift good rebirth, where they will embrace the Dharma, meet a Spiritual Guide and be set on the Path to Enlightenment.

  30. So Kin Hoe on Feb 10, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, Li Kim and all Kechara staff for providing this precious and meritorious knowledge for us to collect merits. It is a good opportunity for us to contribute and sponsor monk robes during this auspicious chinese new year.

  31. abby f on Feb 10, 2013 at 4:08 am

    All the good qualities that an ordained person has are from the vows they are taking, the works that they are doing and they did in the past. Support the sangha or the 3 Jewels is the best thing you can do to preserve the precious teachings of the Buddha.

    And when people has problem or need help, they will go seek blessing from the sangha, and why sangha? Because we know clearly that this monk/nun is special and very different with us. After seeking blessings, they might feel better. This power of heal comes from the robes and who is wearing it. Sponsor monks is the best way to tell how sincere you are.

  32. sarahyap on Feb 10, 2013 at 1:07 am

    Wow! Thank you for coming up with so many methods for us to collect merits. It certainly is one of the most meritorious deed to sponsor a monk’s robes, it is after all one of the 8 most powerful noble acts. Just by sponsoring a monk’s robes, we are:

    1) Supporting a monk to continue to be a monk
    2) Supporting a monk so that he do not have to worry about mundane things, but can concentrate on his Dharma practice.
    3) creating the causes for us to generate higher spiritual aspirations.
    4) Supporting the Dharma to grow
    5) Collecting tremendous amount of merits.

    We are indeed very fortunate to have this program for everyone to get involved with supporting the monks in the monastery. Rinpoche has kindly made things so convenient for us to make offerings to the monks in the monastery.

  33. Valentina Suhendra on Feb 9, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    Thank you for the write up! I will be in KL 19 – 21 February 2013 for business meetings. Plan to visit Kechara paradise outlet regarding the above.

  34. Pastor Chia on Feb 9, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Thank Li Kim provided this precious information and opportunity for people offering monk robe during different auspicious day to make offering.How meritorious!

    I had an honor follow rinpoche to Gaden monastery during 2006 to make monk robe to 3000 sangha members. It was so beautiful seeing all the monk received their robe, so they can more robe to wear for their practice and holding their vows everyday. How meaningful and bless by the sangha members.

  35. Datuk May on Feb 9, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Dear LiKim,
    I would like to ask, can someone sponsor the robes and dedicate the sponsoring to someone else as a gift?

    Like on someone’s birthday, instead of giving that person a gift or ang pau, I sponsor a set of robes and dedicate the merits to the person.

    When that is done, how do we let the person know. Would kechara have a receipt that is like a gift to let the birthday person know?

    I find this to be a great gift on all occasions. Please advise. Thank you.

    • Sharon Saw on Feb 10, 2013 at 3:21 am

      What an excellent idea, Datuk May. I am sure this is fine, for we can sponsor pujas and dedicate to someone else.This gift would be better than any material items that we can give our loved ones as the benefits are permanent. Perhaps we can have a specially designed gift certificate which should the sponsor wish, the sponsor can give to the person they are dedicating to.

  36. Erickksiow on Feb 8, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Love this, to make an offering to the holy Sangha. Everyone should do this, to support the Sangha. May all the Sangha continues to turn the Dharma Wheel.

    _/\_

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  37. patsy on Feb 8, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    It is very meritorious to make offerings to the Sangha and Rinpoche has so kindly given us the opportunity to do so. I will definitely sponsor towards this great cause.

  38. jennifer on Feb 8, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Thank you so much Rinpoche , Li Kim and the team for giving us this wonderful opportunity to offer robes to the monks, and for us to be able to dedicate the merits to our deceased love ones, to our family and our pets.

    I have just shown the article to my Filipina maid who immediately said she will also sponsor a set of robes , in dedication to her beloved father whose death anniversary is on 15th Feb.

    Love and generosity transcends all religion and cultures and i am so glad that we have this opportunity to dedicate the merits to our ancestors and to the people (and animals ) that we love.

    • Pastor Susan on Feb 18, 2013 at 1:50 am

      You must have spoken well and shown her by example of being a Buddhist for your maid to also have faith of how virtuous the life of ordained sangha members are. Therefore, by making offerings to them, we gain tremendous benefits. Thank you for sharing.

  39. henry ooi on Feb 8, 2013 at 10:06 am

    I was one of the fortunate pilgrims who was with the group to Gaden Shartse in 2006.

    Last night, my family and I also had the fortune to make similar offerings to monks in monasteries.

    May the dharma flourish.

  40. Sharon Saw on Feb 8, 2013 at 2:12 am

    Dear Li KIm,

    Thank you for sharing this opportunity to sponsor monks robes. it is such a good way to accumulate merits for our loved ones. As soon as i heard about it, i sponsored a set and dedicated it to my parents. This is the best way to thank my parents for their kindness and care to me all my life. Any other gift i give to my parents would only benefit them in the short term but a sponsorship of such a meritorious extent will benefit them in all their future lives. Thank you to Rinpoche and Kechara for continuously creating opportunities for us to benefit ourselves and others.

  41. Joy on Feb 8, 2013 at 12:51 am

    I am so glad to be making this auspicious offering just before CNY hits and what a wonderful way to start the new year by making offerings to the sangha!!!

    There is so much benefit and significance in offering monks robes as it is not just a piece of maroon cloth. It represents the monks or nuns vows and entire being of dedicating their entire life in service of others through Dharma. Also this is a wonderful way to educate Malaysians in this form of Dhana offering as we do not have a strong culture here yet. This is a great way to start encouraging people to be generous, they can even do this offering on behalf of their loved ones, sick ones and deceased ones and offer the merits to them. And in return gain so much benefits from it. Thank you for giving us this meritorious opportunity Rinpoche 🙂

  42. Jean Ai on Feb 8, 2013 at 12:30 am

    WOW! This just in – already 20 people have offered robes!!! They’re doing it for Chinese New Year, as an auspicious start to their new year! 20 PEOPLE! But it’s not just CNY when you can offer the robes, you know?? You can offer for your birthday, for your pets so they come back as human beings (!!!), on behalf of your recently deceased loved ones, Wesak Day, because you’re going on a long journey and want to create merits for protection…or maybe because you think young monks are super cute, and you want them to have super cute mini robes hehehe

    The last time I offered robes was at the Bodhgaya Mahabodhi Stupa when we had the opportunity to offer robes directly onto Buddha’s body. Since that statue is reputed to be the closest likeness to the Buddha, I visualised that I was offering to the Buddha Himself. It’s true what this post says about how there’s no greater happiness than offering robes. I remember how I felt on that day…bursting with happiness to see the Buddha clothed in swarthes of saffron. I know I’ll feel like that when I offer robes to any of the Three Jewels and well, all I wanna be is happy 🙂

    • Paris on Feb 8, 2013 at 1:33 am

      I’d like to add that among the 20+ people who have already made their offerings is a little kid who has put his Chinese new year money / ang pow towards this. I think it’s wonderful that there are so many packages available so that even young kids can put their pocket money towards something positive, instead of just spending it on candy and playstation games!

      And more good news to share: The three Nepalese boys in Haven, KB, Rajendra and Ram (who are Hindu, they’re not even Buddhist) have also collective made offerings towards these robes. So this is really something that anyone can contribute to. It’s a beautiful offering 🙂

      Thank you to Rinpoche and the team who conceptualised this wonderful opportunity for sponsorship and collecting merits and for making it so accesible to laypeople here.

    • Elena Toma on Jul 14, 2013 at 12:19 am

      Hi. I am in Romania. Came upon this site and read through and found the ‘robe offering’. I am not sure how expensive they are or how many I can offer but it would make me very happy to at least do it with as much as I can at the moment so can you please advise on how I could send, buy them from or dimply donate? Thank you! and you can contact me at thecobaltroom@gmail.com. or the admin can advise on the e-mail I left here but doesn’t show for the public.

  43. David Lai on Feb 8, 2013 at 12:30 am

    This is so meritorious! Thank you Rinpoche for providing us with an avenue to collect merits in relations to the beautiful Sangha of Gaden monastery. This blog post has very extensive explanations on the benefits of making robe offerings. All of us who are serious about our spiritual practice should indeed offer towards this fund as it is very meritorious to create causes for the Dharma to flourish and for us to hold our morality. I am definitely going to contribute.

    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.

    Today, the practical applications of Einstein’s theories include the development of the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD-players. 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.

    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
