Dear friends,

I thought I give a short video talk on change and how to integrate dharma into our lives now and immediately. We like to make excuses and justifications of why we can’t… how about if we start to say we can and produce results…

Love and care,
Tsem Rinpoche

    The dharma teachings are holy and sacred but it cannot change our life become better overnight. We have to learn the dharma and applying it daily, we will have changes. Dharma can only be called dharma when we have transformation in the mind.

    Always challenge our mind, from negative thinking to positive thinking. When we train our mind to think positively, we may become calmer, happier, and able to accept more difficult situation for others with higher purposes. We have to understand that only we can change our thoughts. So start practicing dharma now diligently with consistency and there will be results.

    Change doesn’t come without effort. As Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche said in his commentary on Lama Tsongkhapa’s “The Three Principal Paths” (“The Three Principal Aspects of the Path”), “if you really put forth the effort, there’s no question that you can even become a Buddha”.

  3. Pastor Moh Mei on Jan 24, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    We expect dharma to be some profound wisdom that is the solution to all our problems. It is. But dharma is also logical, it’s not magical. You still need to learn how to drive that car, cook that dish – that’s the part we don’t want to hear. We want to take a pill and it’s instant enlightenment. That’s why many of us despite finding dharma, will still leave because we are still looking that pill.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 3, 2015 at 4:48 am

    If we brought ourselves this this state due to habituations of 30 years plus, it may not be logical to think a solution can be found via dharma with a few weeks of going through the motions of practicing dharma. It is not impossible but highly improbable. Rinpoche tells us we can change, if we apply the dharma, and better to start now to effect that change in us.

  5. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jun 23, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us a short yet powerful video teaching of changing ourselves with positive results by applying the Dharma practice after we have listened and learnt the Dharma. There is no immediate or quick fix when we enter into a Dharma class but gradually applying the Dharma into ourselves with mind transformation day by day before we can completely get rid of our long habituated negativity such as selfish mind, egoism, self-grasping, hatred, jealousy and ignorance. Challenging our mind to endure the difficult situation by consistently staying on the pure Dharma practice can make us feel uneasy and unhappy in the short term, but self liberation from samsara with ultimate happiness is awaiting us ahead in the long term through the Dharma practice.

  6. Pastor Han Nee on May 29, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. Yes, I am responsible for the way I apply the dharma to transform my mind to be more positive and less egotistical.No one can do it for me. At the same time I must be patient and persevering, as my mind will not effect changes overnight. I have had many years of negative habituation. How can I expect a change to take place instantly. I must let go of the past and also always think of how I hurt others when I continue to cling to my negative habituations.

    I must not think I can’t do it. I CAN, I MUST, I WILL.If I don’t persevere and just give up, it will be a great waste. I have met all the opportune conditions; and, most rare and precious of all, I have met my Spiritual Guide.If I give up, I will continue to circle samsara and continue to suffer lifetime after lifetime, as I have done for lifetimes before this.

  7. Li Kheng on May 28, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    In my first audience with Rinpoche, Rinpoche advised that for change and transformation to be sustainable, we must implement change with wisdom and compassion, i.e taking it one step at a time. Moderate implementation makes a goal more attainable albeit challenging.

    Being an extreme person, I thank Rinpoche for this advise that is both very kind and wise.

    I hope for everyone who wishes to apply change in their lives to benefit from this short and precise teaching.

  8. Datuk May on May 21, 2015 at 3:00 pm

    So true, Rinpoche, holding onto past experience, except with skills of operation, does not help with Dharma practice.

    Even past experience and skills may not be useful as the world’s technology and things progress and upgrade.

    Holding on to our past is the highest form of self indulgence and the obstacle for inability to change. Perfect illustration of the egotistical mind.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  9. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on May 19, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Change is difficult especially when a person starts learning dharma and applying it. Everyone including me want quick fix for whatever problems we face and we expect quick results but as Rinpoche says – it will take time. We know it will take time for us to see the results but we’re just too impatient , thus we’ll just give up too easily. As for myself, I know it’s a long road for me but I will not give up in my spiritual path. As what Rinpoche said it take years in our habituation , thus it will take years too for us to see positive change in us. What I can say is that the biggest obstacle is in our mind – once our mind is transformed , we will be able to break through the barriers. The change we need has to come from within. People don’t and won’t change for us; thus we got to change from within ourselves. It is true to the fact that we have a egoistical mind that hinders us from applying the dharma that we have learnt.
    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us about the need to learn dharma and applying it in our daily lives.

    “Only I can change myself and no one can do it for me. If I resolved to change, it is where the real transformation begin.” When the change comes from within, we will not be dissapointed by others. It is expectation that gives rise to all headaches. Expect less and change for the better. I might fear the unknown ( and still) but it is far more challenging than time wasted and having regrets. For better or worse, we are constantly changing and we just have to shape and mould it from time to time.

    Time waits for no man! I truly agree that if we want to see results, we have to start applying Dharma in our lives now. It’s not only about listening and understanding Dharma, key word here is to apply Dharma in our lives under all circumstances. We may not see results overnight due to number of years of habituation, but definitely will see results if we are consistent in our Dharma actions. Applying Dharma will only lead to positive changes. I will remember this teaching by heart. Thanks Rinpoche for such a profound teaching on change.

  12. nicholas on May 18, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    When we learn the drama, apply them in our daily action and when we see the results in our life there is where we see the satisfaction and from there we are convince that the dharma is right, truth and remedy for our problem and solution for our happiness. I agree that we need to take time to change but not to wait for change but to work for the change. I understand what Rinpoche is telling us here is to apply one day at a time, one month at a time… we need to apply but in a progressive pace as due to our habituation it take time to curb and apply the new method to counter negative habituation but we have to apply no matter ow hard it is.

    I like this “ Dharma is not just to learning, listening and understanding, Dharma is when you get results”.

  13. Michael C. on May 5, 2014 at 4:29 am

    lol! i Love this video. when You say “change” then You switch from right side of Your face showing to right side of Your face showing. lol. And the background – makes me want to go out and buy a lava lamp. And the Dharma flowing from your mouth is profound! This song keeps playing in my head, my brain synapses have made a connection between the two ( http://youtu.be/1lyu1KKwC74 )

  14. Jim Yeh on Sep 25, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Love the background!

    Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche. Some of us have embraced the dharma recently and we go through many new emotions, sometimes we think “oh, all my actions from now on will be pure” but then we slip up and feel guilty and confused about it. Or when conditions around us do not turn favourable immediately.

    This teaching explained that change do not happen overnight and it’s because of our years of habituation, our minds are so used to processing information in a certain way, that we can’t re-write that whole process in a mere few days. Similarly, if we spend years getting ourselves in a mess, we cannot untangle ourselves from it within 1 day.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for giving us the “secret” formula.

  15. Martin on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    This post was originally put up about one year ago and it is a good exercise now to reflect on whether we have indeed made progress in our Dharma practice by looking at our changes over the last year. Clearly in order to do that, we must firstly be mindful of what we need to change and then apply what we have learned from the Dharma and then test the changes under difficult circumstances. Positive change begets even more positive improvements because when there is a real change in us, we can taste it. It is a freedom from whatever afflictions used to have such a hold on us such as anger and depression and if we are practicing Dharma correctly, it is safe to say that we begin to crave for change. Over time difficult circumstances begin to present themselves as opportunities to measure ourselves rather than registering as problems.

    I thoroughly love this short teachings that we can out into effect immediately.

  16. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 19, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Very powerful on how we can be a better person. If we have spent ten years habituating, it will take almost that amount of time to reverse the effect of our negative habituation.
    Unless somehow we have this major paradigm SHIFT. Ans sometimes the Lama makes that magic happen in the SHIFT.

  17. uncle eddie on Feb 14, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for your interesting video talk on how to integrate Dharma into our lives and pschedically change ourselves. Yes, when we have experienced some sort of compassion, care and concern for others from our practice,we certainly feel happy and joyful and have no hesitancy to helping others. As a start, in bringing happiness to other people’s lives, our goals, ideas, aspirations and endeavours will grow, and as such, we are able to cultivate positive energies which at times of our practice of Dharma should be important! May we be able to have this as a total positive change, and bring that to others too! OM MANI PADME HUM.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this profound teachings. Transformation takes time, it doesn’t happen overnight. How much we want to change is dependent on how much effort we put in. Real dharma is when we transformed and get the results.

  20. David Lai on Feb 6, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    What a powerful teaching and reminder of how much we need to change all the time for the better. I am pretty much a creature of comfort and habit. I think that change is inevitable and how well we cope with change meaning to continually apply the Dharma with humility, perseverance and willingness to self-examine and follow through what is needed. I think one of the quotes Rinpoche posted before really reflects this spirit of transformation and change :-

    “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”

  21. jennifer on Feb 6, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche on the short but very wise and profound teaching.

    It is so true that everyone wants the quick and easy way to Enlightenment -“quick fix, instant results”.
    We need to do the inner work ourselves, no matter how difficult and challenging it will be.
    As there is no one who can wave a magic wand or give us a magic pill and we instantly become Enlightened !!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us how to do it and thank you for explaining to us how wonderful transformation of the mind can be.

    Thank you for the short but meaningful video, Rinpoche. I learnt that change can sometimes take longer than what is expected and being compassion to oneself can help. In the our focus to be compassionate to others, it is easy to forget to be compassionate to oneself. With folded hands.

  26. Chenma on Feb 6, 2013 at 1:08 am

    beautiful teaching!

  27. mima on Apr 26, 2012 at 2:07 am

    “You can tolerate more difficult situation, you can accept more difficult situation and you can accept it for others for a higher purpose that is the Dharma”

    SO IMPORTANT POINT SO IMPORTANT ~~For others…..For others…..I wish to remember this every moment of my life. Thank you Rinpoche deeply with intent I wish for this sincerely..to begin today in a new journey in the Dharma day by day I can stop to be depress for others no need to be sad just give and be happy This is a big jump but I can begin today with strong intent to follow the Dharma.

  28. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 27, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Rinpoche puts it in such a clear and lucid way , if we expect one day of mantra / om mani padme hum and all our toxins or negativity we have accumulated goes a way that does not make sense. But as how rinpoche broke it down, if we start to have dharma, we start to have a different mind and outlook altogether. All our actions does start with the mind and if we are even willing to entertain the thought that we could have been wrong and want to change that is very powerful thought in our minds. What rinpoche pointed out is that when we come into dharma, there will be changes. In the lamrim the BUddhas pay more homage to our initial small change than the bigger changes we experience in dependance on the small changes in our minds in the first place.

  29. Ac17 on Feb 20, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Not easy to kick our habituation out off the door once and for all. But rather than sitting down not doing anything, it is best to roll up the sleeves and get working on it.

    Nobody can help us, beside ourselves. Along that way am sure we will encounter various difficulties.
    Anger, frustration, laziness and so on…but we must learn to counter negative emotions positively. If we do that perhaps we are transforming while learning how to transform.

    Thank You Rinpoche

  30. Li Kheng on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this patient teaching. The kindness of Rinpoche and the 3 Jewels is once again displayed in this video. Rinpoche, the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha work compassionately with the limitations we impose upon ourselves by accepting that “we need more time to change”.

    I agree with May that the speedy path is certainly “better” than taking our time because time passes quickly and many things can happen within the short time frame of a split second. For example: How many times did we regret simply because we procrastinated? How many times did we miss our chance to tell someone we loved them because we thought we had the time? How many lives can be lost or come to be in a second?

    Nevertheless, Rinpoche is very kind, wise and skilful to teach this more feasible approach of taking a step at a time in today’s degenerate age. However, we must not take the kindness of our Guru for granted and still work for the fastest possible change by being the best of who we can be.

  31. Irene on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    The best change in onself is without knowing one has changed until one is told you are changed for the better.

  32. henry ooi on Feb 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    I love this post! Short, direct and compelling teaching right to the core yet set against a psychedelic background.

    Change of negative habits is a challenge that I have been and am still striving for. Not easy but little by little, day by day, I get happy when I see subtle changes in me. Harder still is not to revert to negative habits. But I will persevere.

  33. Han on Feb 10, 2012 at 12:40 am

    great video, simple and easy to understand….

    THE CHANGE HAS TO COME FROM YOU. LEARNING AND APPLYING UNDER ALL DIFFICULT SITUATIONS….
    APPLY DHARMA , DHARMA IS WHEN YOU GET RESULT…
    We call dharma only we have transformations, challenge negative to positive…..

  34. lucy yap on Feb 9, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Learning,applying and one hundred per cent targeting the mind with the Dharma.Assassin of the ego.The ego that brings us unhappiness.Along with that we do Dharma work and our Guru Yoga to support and as a practice to collect merit.
    I will remember this Rinpoche and apply it to the best of my ability.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching.

  35. May on Feb 9, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Change equates to this formula: 2+2 (two plus two) always equal to 4 but when we change to this: 8/2 (eight divide by two) also equals to 4 with the same result. However, the formula is different.

    If we want result that comes with happiness, we need to use the “dharma” formula ie. do dharma homework, take dharma lessons, put in effort, learn and apply them and see the changes in us (our mind, speech and action).

    If we work harder and faster, we see quicker changed results because we meet more obstacles and learned how to overcome them quicker and move on quicker to do more. Kind of like a cycle.

    If we take our sweet time to wait to change, our change and progress will be much slower as we meet lesser challenges and do not get to see the result soon, we may give up on the way and lose our sight on the final goal.

    So I prefer the quicker path – meet more challenges, learned quickly and move on to the next level quickly.

  36. William on Feb 9, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching. It has come at the RIGHT time. Learn and Apply to get results.

  37. Mc on Feb 9, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    This is a very encouraging video because all too often I feel that I am not transforming as fast as I can. It is only when we really want to change that we realize how deeply habituated we care. However, it is the daily application of the dharma and the constant reminder as to why we must transform and the sincere motivation to want to transform that gets us through the failures.

    “Dharma is when we get results”. That statements makes the difference in my mind as to what Dharma actually is. So often I forget and think that the mere practice of Dharma is Dharma. I should be looking for the results.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  38. Sonny Gardner on Feb 9, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Motivated! Thank you Dear Sir! Namaste.

  39. Thierry Janssens on Feb 9, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short yet deep teaching.

    I have highlighted the following:

    Patience. How can we expect immediate result from Dharma practice? We have used many years to habituate ourselves to worldly habits, it will also take time to change these habits and create new habits of Dharma. We should set up expectations realistically.

    We should tell ourselves “I will transform, there will be result” but we don’t expect overnight changes.

    The only person that can change me is me. Saints cannot change my mind, only I can change by learning the Dharma and APPLYING it.

    I should not depend on others, I should be a support for others not a burden, in worldly and in Dharma.

    Learning and applying Dharma is the secret, learning only is not enough.

    I should apply the Dharma one day at the time, one month, one year, and be confident that I am changing.
    I become calmer, happier, I can accept more difficult situations and I can accept it for others, for a higher purpose.

    Change is when I am always depressed and I stop it, I stop burdening others an focus on helping others, and I work hard to become a better person.

    Change is starting a new train of thought, and I make today the beginning of tomorrow’s success, not the result of yesterday’s failures.

    Change is challenging my mind, and turn the negative into positive.

    Change is making no one around me in fear of me.

    Change is “I will be a light for others”.

    Change is being a murderer of my egoistical mind.

    When I change people around will also change.

  40. Victor Phang on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche:
    Thanks for the teaching. That is exactly what I’m always reminding myself – “The most effective transformation is not available in any scripture but it is written all the time on my action”.
    Please correct and guide me if I’m wrong.
    Thank you very much and take good care 🙂
    With love,
    VP

  41. Adeline on Feb 9, 2012 at 11:18 am

    After reading this article, I understood that, what we have in mind is not true. We will be able to do Dharma work if we really want to do it. It does not matter where we are. The people who work away quietly and unassumingly are the ones who really create real benefits for themselves and others.
    Dharma work is said to be a blessing, a privilege and an honour. Dharma work is all about giving, rooting out our selfish mind that brought us all our problems in the first place.Thank you very much for the amazing article.

    Our Lama Tsem Rinpoche was someone who will shows kindness and empathy to others, nor matter who they are from the homeless to those foreign workers and someone Rinpoche did not know. Rinpoche has showed us the way to practice acts of kindness, to help someone with their to-do list, to be compassionate and so forth. To show empathy and kindness will change the lives of those who is stricken by misfortune. Rinpoche had always help those at Kechara Forest retreat as Rinpoche understand them well and their needs when they living in a foreign land away from home . Glad for those who are able to follow Rinpoche to buy groceries, eating out, show and so forth.
    No matter who we are, no matter how successful, no matter what our situation, compassion is something we all need to receive and give. Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike, each has their suffering.
    It’s a reminder to show empathy and kindness and to create a world with more love, more understanding, and more compassion.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing.

    Sometimes when we are angry we tend to remember it for a period of time. This is not healthy and even bring negative impact to us. We are angry because we cannot forgive and let go of what has happened. Just imagine the the energy and time wasted when we are angry. Therefore, we should learn to accept, forgive and move on. Otherwise holding on to grudges will only bring unhappiness to our life.

    Whether they are animals or insects, they are still living beings. As they are not in the form that are able to learn dharma, we should make ways for them to be connected to dharma to help them in their future rebirth. Rinpoche has showed us many ways to care for them, as easy as feeding them and blowing mantra to them. Whatever the method, we just need to put effort and continue with the practise.

    I always admire the creativeness of artists as they are able to bring out their message and express their feelings in a piece of art. Lynda Bell is a great artist as all her art piece brings awareness to our environment, animals, kindness and compassion. Something that we need to keep reminding ourselves that we are all part of the world and therefore we should not abuse and love one another.

    It is not just about learning the meaning of being kind and compassion but to apply it to our daily life and towards everyone. Rinpoche gave us the clear example to practise kindness and compassion. These values should not have any differentiation on anyone due to their background, race, language and etc. Everyone should be treated the same. Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this article.

    It is so beautiful that someone can spend their life building such holy image to bless the people around, to plant seed of Buddha to others.To build such huge statue, it need a lot of patience and determination to complete it.
    This statue of Buddha in Hyderabad,India is just so breath taking and wonderful. It is amazing how amazing and wonderful this Buddha especially the picture when the sun is setting .Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful article.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

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

    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
