Setrap

 

Invoking Protection and Blessings

A Prayer to Setrap
Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

 

Among many worlds, realms and dimensions

Abide countless awakened beings, enlightened masters

And those we call upon as having full omniscience.

无数觉皇明师大罗住

无量世界境域或空间

圆满具足觉智我召请

 

From among these beings, we request Setrap,

The Cosmic Warrior who rides on a gallant horse,

Traversing the winds of karma and

Galloping across various dimensions sans creation,

To come to this place at this time.

伟大宇宙将军金甲衣

护法身骑梭马渡业风

奔腾超越空间与诸相

一心至诚祈请汝来临

 

Setrap, Your appearance is that of a powerful, strong, divine General

Although Your heart abides in complete compassion.

Your fierce appearance is only to grant protection and

Dispel those who would be harmers.

Please abide here with me now.

身虽显现威猛神圣将

怒面为除障碍并守护

心识常住悲悯不动摇

金甲衣护法请降临此

 

I offer You a libation of incense and flowers,

And pure water and teas and all that is wonderful,

Free of attachments, that exists in the universe, actual and visualised.

Please partake of the libation of tea

And the various other sensory offerings I have placed

In order for me to make a strong affinity with You. (x3)

微妙香花净水及山茗

陈实观想离执供养品

祈请护法纳受妙欲供

为求护法结盟善缘增 (x3)

 

Regrets, mistakes and deeds done of ignorance

Which may haunt my mind bringing self-doubt and remorse,

I ask You to cleanse as I have learnt and progressed.

May they not bear unwanted sorrows.

令生起自疑自卑之心

无明所造过失今悔过

肯祈汝洗涤罪垢增进

令得罪根清净无悲伤

 

My body, environment, mind

Are subject to fears, self-ridicule, pain, degeneration,

Illness, old age, spiritual and psychic pollutions.

It all arises from grasping at an illusionary ego

Which clouds our perceptions.

行者身、心识、境尽所生

恐惧、自辱、老化诸痛苦

乃由执著于虚幻自我

掩盖世上一切外见相

 

Great Cosmic Warrior Setrap!

Send forth unlimited rays of purifying light, entering my body,

Clearing me of disease and fears,

And granting me light, love, freedom and compassion.

伟大宇宙金甲衣大将

愿放无量息灾清净光

消除病疫恐惧入我身

赐于慈悲仁爱自由光

 

Cosmic Being, who travels existence in a single instant,

I request You to abide in this place, in this house,

In this abode, in this land, in this area and in my heart.

May no negative forces or legions of harm and damage enter.

一时游历世界宇宙尊

祈请安住此处此家宅

安立居处、土地、内心处

愿无灾害、障难、可侵入

 

Please grant Your sacred diamond-like* protection,

That is immovable, indestructible and unassailable,

To my environment and to the beings therein –

I request of You.

金刚维护不动不坏力

祈求赐予金刚守护力

加持境内清净护众生

 

Grant us protection, blessings,

Together with signs and auspicious dreams

Of Your holy presence in this abode.

守护加持征兆吉祥梦

圣驾此处请于惠赐我

 

May our works, our lives, our bounty increase,

So that we may be of service to others.

May everyone who abides in this abode

Have bountiful growth, prosperity

And spiritual, along with worldly wealth, if it suits them.

祈愿事业、生命、利益增

另我等得为他人服务

祈愿居此处者内外利益增

依其身心得内外福具

 

Whenever I travel, am at home, working or in various activities,

Please grant thorough protection,

Like a body followed by its shadow,

To never be separated from You and Your cosmic emanations.

**May You, and all holy and divine and powerful

That abide in Your sacred, ruby-like mandala also bless us.

行住坐卧、事务、事业中

如影随形守护大加持

 

May my channels, my pathways, chakras

And every single ligament, bone, artery, muscle and fibre

In my body be blessed.

May all my chakras open,

Be healed, be filled with light and be unobstructed

So that I may gain the divine, compassion, wisdom,

Skillful means and full omniscience, just like Yourself.

愿护法加持气脉明点

身内韧带骨骼血管肌

七重密轮治愈令得开

密轮充满光明无障碍

成就洁圣慈悲智慧及

如同护法善巧觉悟地

 

I dedicate my prayers and my solicitations to You

That the world may be at peace,

All countries may have harmony.

May all the animals be safe, the waters be clear,

The environment become pure.

May all leaders decide for the benefit of others,

May all citizens have more concern for their neighbours than themselves,

May all that exists always abide in light, life and happiness

And our planet and all planets be safe.

以此祈愿祷告回向汝

并祈世界和平国泰安

动物安和水清世境净

愿诸国领袖为民着想

国民为利邻人少自利

有情安住光明乐自在

地球诸星安顺无灾损

 

I now chant Your sacred mantra,

Which are the sounds of power, compassion, skillful means,

Healing, meditation and wisdom.

治愈、禅定、智慧方便力

慈悲、善巧、圆满之音声

我今念诵护法神圣咒

 

And as I chant and recite Your holy mantra

May the reverberations and vibrations of the mantra

Pervade my body, my mind, my soul,

And everyone that I love,

May it even pervade those I view as enemies,

Be filled with love, light, forgiveness, protection

Growth, awareness and Enlightenment.

持汝神圣咒语之回响

充满身心口意及所爱

视如怨敌者亦得加持

充满慈爱、光明及饶恕

守护觉智内外令增长

并得成就无上佛陀境

 

Setrap, I keep You close to my heart

Grant me full protection from all that may be harmful

To me, my work, loved ones, environment

And especially my Enlightenment.

我当金甲衣安住心中

惠赐我等亲眷事业等

得汝守护力远离诸难

并得之直至成佛陀境

 

Setrap’s mantra  金甲衣护法心咒:

OM MA-HA YAK-CHA TSA SO-HA

(Recite daily 7 times, 21 times or more, depending on your time and schedule. Of course, the more the better.)

 

Colophon: At the request of Ms. Anne Jones, this prayer was composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche on 18 August 2012, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the protection and blessings of all spiritual practitioners.

Notes:

*In this case, diamonds represent indestructibility.

**Within Setrap’s sacred space abide a multitude of holy, awakened Beings and assistants, angels, dakinis and dakas. We are requesting all their blessings.

 


 

A brief description of Setrap:

· The red colour of Setrap’s body symbolises control over one’s inner and outer environments.

· The overbite of the lower-lip symbolises control of one’s faculties.

· Setrap has three luminous, penetrating eyes that represent seeing into the phenomena of the past, present and future, unobstructedly.

· His right hand raises a divine cudgel representing the elimination of our obstacles, pains, guilt and troubles.

· The left hand holds a lasso bound to a ‘human’; the binding of this ‘human’ represents the binding of all of our fears, destructive attitudes, self-created delusions and demons.

· He wears the armaments of a ‘leather cuirass’ likened to when we go into battle and wear armaments to protect ourselves; this represents that Setrap has incredible protective abilities for us.

· The psychic flames which arise from every pore of His body symbolise that wherever He abides, there is an impenetrable force of protection.

· The horse He rides is not a physical animal but an avatar of His mind, representing swiftness in fulfilling our spiritual quests.

· The diadem of ‘skulls’ is a reminder of the fallacious notion of permanency and the ever-present spectre of our own demise; hence, it reminds us to put full energy into our spiritual growth. This diadem of ‘skulls’ also symbolises that He will benefit the dearly departed when we pray for them.

· The five victory flags mounted on His helmet represents generosity, contentment, wisdom, stability and growth.

    感谢仁波切與我們提示金甲衣護法祈禱版本。即使這祈祷文濃缩但卻清楚易明的,每一個词句確實有深意,正確的動機和思路清晰的佛法修持。我相信,如理修持背誦此禱文,尤是對上師的绝对依止心及護法的信任心,這將幫助我们清除障礙,使我們的心識平稳走向證悟,这也是我們真正迫卻需要的。

    Thank you very much Tsem Rinpoche. SETRAP Prayer has benefits me and it helps me to clear my obstacles and negative thoughts. I will continue my practice in order to bless everyone around me. Thanks.

    Venix

  11. Felix Kong on Dec 11, 2012 at 3:22 am

    Really appreciate Rinpoche to share the Protector Lord Setrap. Setrap is really powerful protector, can protect us immediately whenever and wherever . Also can clear our obstacles and troubles.

    i really love Setrap and share to anyone who surrounding us.

  12. Janice Kwok on Oct 23, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for composing this special prayer. I will print and share with all Setrap Puja attendees at Viva Home. This special prayer is easy to follow, understand and relate to their daily lives. Many of the attendees have commented they have benefitted from the Setrap puja and mantras and they have helped to bring their family and friends to attend. Its v rewarding to see them able to share this benefit quickly.

  13. Lester on Oct 11, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for composing this wonderful prayer! I wonder if it can be employed as a mini Setrap tea offering rite? Thanks again.

  14. Anne Jones on Sep 18, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche and followers. I cannot thank you enough for introducing Setrap to me. He has kept me safe from not inconsiderable negative and psychic attack. I have now shared the sacred mantras and prayers with hundreds of people all over the world. There are many in Norway, UK, USA, South Africa, Australia and more who are getting the benefit of his protection. I am inundated with thanks and gratitude for sharing these powerful prayers. We all have busy lives, we have much to challenge us in these turbulent days and knowing that we can trust our spiritual protection and wellbeing to such an eminent and powerful being of light is such a relief, leaving us to get on with our purpose and work. So a huge thank you and much gratitude. Anne Jones. annejones.org.

  15. kenny wong on Sep 18, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for giving us another beautiful composition of Dharmapala Setrap’s prayer. I have already started doing it in my office as part of my daily prayers.. very deep and meaningful.

  16. jamiekhoo on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Dear all,
    I’d like to share a very happy, lovely update with everyone. One of my friends, Anne Jones, an international author and new-age healer, has been incorporating this very same prayer into her workshops, seminars and e-courses on healing and protection. She is bringing Setrap to thousands of people through her books and workshops, introducing him as a very powerful practice of protection and healing. Since receiving a copy of the prayer, she has brought it out to people all over England, Norway and is now preparing to go into Africa. She also does teaching courses around Asia (Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan) and South America – so Setrap is going global now!

    I was very very fortunate to be there with Rinpoche as he composed this prayer very spontaneously. He composed every line based upon traditional sources and rituals. As such, the prayer is very complete and contains all the elements of a traditional kangsol (rituals and prayers to Dharma protectors) including invocation, praises, confession/regret, making offerings and the requests for protection.

    as such, this is a prayer that you can introduce to friends who are very, very new to Dharma and perhaps are not so familiar with the rituals yet. Instead of doing the traditional serkym prayers, they can simply offer a cup of drink here in this version of the prayers, which is of course, much more convenient for beginners.

    Happy prayers to all!

        Dear Keb,

        This prayer does not require any special kind of initiation or transmission to practice. It was composed by His Eminence specifically for anyone to be able to practice it. Even the Setrap prayers we recite at Kechara House every week, and are available to invite as a part of a box set here: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/setrap-box-set-english, do not require the initiation. Setrap’s practice can be engaged by anyone.

        Thank you,
        Pastor Niral

    We are luck to have a Protector in our lives. Protector Setrap cares us like our mothers, help us in every way, protect us every moment, until we get enlightened. Protector and Guru are one. May those without Protector and Guru find their own. May every sentient beings especially those who is in pain and fear get protection and help from Protector Setrap!

  19. patsy on Sep 12, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for composing such a beautiful prayer and creating the cause for us to be connected to Lord Setrap!

  20. Su Ming on Sep 11, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    This praise was composed by Rinpoche himself 2 to 3 weeks ago. I was indeed very fortunate to be there as Rinpoche read it out and got the Chinese team to translate. I have referred this prayers to a few of our members. It is condense and easy to do.

  21. EricLee KHJB on Sep 11, 2012 at 9:59 am

    谢谢仁波切在一次为我们抽出那么宝贵的时间,编写了这一篇有关金甲衣护法的祈愿文,以便让更多的人能够得到金甲衣护法的庇佑,去除所以六道众生的障碍,能让许多的人,离苦得乐。

  22. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 10, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    The dharma protectors are truly a compassionate lot, always heearing our non stop prayers and wants and needs, and not getting angry in an unenlightened manner. Imagine people asking for all kinds of request day and night wanting to get this or that, and not losing one’s cool across the universe.

  23. grace (KSJC) on Sep 10, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Setrap Practice, it was powerful and beneficial for clearing our obstacles.It make us have clear picture on visualization of Setrap image when we chanting .

    • Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Oct 20, 2014 at 5:06 pm

      I still felt the fortunate to meet Rinpoche and received Lord Setrap practice from Rinpoche. It totally change my life in term of when I have difficulty, I don’t felt so in fear and lost way, I strongly felt the protection of Lord Setrap since many years. I will move on by transformation my mindset, I know Setrap and Rinpoche are there to bless me.

  24. Lim (KH JB) on Sep 10, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Thanks Rinpoche to take ur time to compose a new Setrap prayer for us and i feel that this prayer become more closely and suitable for this timing.

    May more and more peoples may connected to Setrap…

  25. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 9, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking your precious time to compose this prayer and share with us here.

    This prayer is more contemporary and is so closer to our hearts. It is meaningful and is worth our time to ponder over the contents time and again.

    I agree with Carmen that not many ppl can compose sacred prayer like this. For this prayer especially, only those with strong affinity with Lord Setrap such as Rinpoche can do so.

    Thank you Rinpoche once again for composing this prayer for our benefits.

  26. tfreon on Sep 9, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this beautiful prayer.
    The explanation on Setrap make me feel more close to Setrap and felt for Setrap’s Compassion and wisdom.

    Thank you
    With Holded Hand

  27. Sofi on Sep 8, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Wow, as I read Rinpoche’s composure to Lord Setrap, I could feel the energy at the back of my head. Imagined or not, this is a beautiful prayer that brings instant connection to our modern times and understanding, especially the confession part and request for blessings. It takes deep understanding, connection and visualization to be able to write this meaningful prayer to Lord Setrap. I thank Rinpoche for your compassion to always help us in ways to deepen our connection to the Buddhas. With folded hands, Sofi.

  28. DR on Sep 8, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    A beautiful prayer complete with praises and request. A protector of Gaden Shartse, propitiated by 1,200 monks daily. How fortunate we are to be able to even recite his name. We would never even have heard of him if Rinpoche had not brought him to us. Thank you Rinpcohe.

  29. Low ksjc on Sep 8, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your version of Setrap prayer with us. Even tough the prayer is condense, it is very clear that, every verse that was written indeed have a profound meaning to life with correct motivation and the right view for the correct path to dharma practice.I sincerely believe that by reciting this prayer,it would help anyone who practice it ,to clear our obstacles and lead us to the correct path of thought transformation which we truly in need now..

  30. Sabina G. on Sep 8, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    This is extremely beautiful! Thank You so much Rinpoche!

  31. Uncle Eddie on Sep 8, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Our Protector Lord Setrap, though appears to us with a wrathful and fierce countenance, this fury is not directed towards any beings, but aimed instead at destroying our inner and secret negative defilements of attachment, anger, ignorance and our self-cherising attitudes which bring us so much sufferings. Protector Lord setrap is actually an emanation of Buddha Amitaba, who acts with compassion and objectless equanmity towards all beings, and said to cherish all beings above himself. Dharmapala Setrap has been the enlightened Dharma protector for the illustrious Gaden Shartse Monastry for 600 years. Thank you Rinpoche for your endless compassion, care and love, and for your beautiful Setrap prayer too, illustrated herewith for the benefit of all spiritual practitioners.

  32. Carmen on Sep 8, 2012 at 12:39 am

    What a completely beautiful composition put together with peaceful and serene words. Thank you for this, Rinpoche!

    I was thinking about it and realised not any Tom, Dick and Harry can compose a prayer to Dharmapala Setrap just like that. It shows what capabilities, qualities and attainments Rinpoche has, and how fortunate we are to have a high lama of Rinpoche’s calibre to be walking amongst us in today’s society.

    Love,
    Carmen

  33. benji on Sep 7, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. The prayers you compose are always beautiful – so clear and easy to follow. They are always so meaningful and inspiring! It is like you know our innermost fears, pain and yearnings! Then you lead us to pray to transcend the mundane. i also love to read from the prayer cards you composed years ago – i love reading the prayer to holy Vajrayogini! THANK YOU again Rinpoche!

  34. benji on Sep 7, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. The prayers you compose are always so beautiful – so meaningfuland inspiring! It is like you just know our innermost pain, fears and yearnings! Then you lead us to transcend the mundane. i also enjoy reading from the prayer cards you wrote quite sometime ago – i love reading the prayer to holy Vajrayogini. Thak you again Rinpoche!

  35. JP Lim on Sep 7, 2012 at 9:36 am

  36. sweekeong on Sep 7, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Very beautiful prayer for clearing our negative thoughts, attitude, and developing good thoughts for others. I like this very much.

    May our works, our lives, our bounty increase,
    So that we may be of service to others.

    Have bountiful growth, prosperity
    And spiritual, along with worldly wealth, if it suits them.

    Sarnath is considered a sacred place to the Buddhists for being the place where Gautama Buddha first taught seven weeks after achieving enlightenment in the 6th century BC. This first teaching is known in Sanskrit as Dharmacakrapravartana Sutra, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Sutra. The main topic is the Four Noble Truth, the Eight-Fold Path and teachings associated with it.

    After Buddha gave his sermon at the Deer park in Sarnath, his five former companions of his earlier ascetic days were liberated upon hearing the teachings and as a result, they became arhats. That was to be the beginning of the Sangha, the community of the enlightened ones.

    In the past, people lived for an immensely long time — as long as 80,000 years, endowed with great beauty, wealth, pleasure, and strength. Over the cause of time, due to the negative actions performed, human’s lifespan gradually shortened to what we are now. Human beauty, wealth, pleasure, and strength also decrease proportionately. It is said in the future, as morality continues to degenerate, human life will continue to shorten to the point where the normal lifespan will be just 10 years, with people reaching sexual maturity at five.

    Ultimately, the condition will become worse that the human beings will hunt each other with swords. A few people, however, will take shelter in the wilderness to escape the carnage. And when the slaughter is over, they will come out of hiding and resolve to take up a life of skillful and virtuous action again. With the recovery of virtue, the human life span will gradually increase again until it reaches a very long time (listed as 80,000 years), with people attaining sexual maturity at 500.

    Geshe Ngawang Wangyal (1901 – 1983) was the first lama to play a pivotal role in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. He was also the one who brought His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the United States. Geshe Ngawang Wangyal was a Kalmyk born in Russia, he was ordained at the age of 6 due to his inclination in Buddhism. In order to support his monastic study in Drepung monastery in Tibet, Geshe Wangyal was working for the westerners as an interpreter, guide and assistant. In the end, he successfully completed his study and obtained his Geshe qualification. Geshe Ngawang Wangyal migrated to the US in 1955, his Dharma activities started to flourish and he had produced some very learned western students.

    Read more to learn about the great deeds of Geshe Ngawang Wangyal.

    Interesting read so so…….Tsem Rinpoche ‘s previous reincarnation was Kentrul Thubten Lamseng. Kentrul Rinpoche Thubten Lamsang was one of the most important disciples of Kyabje Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. Reincarnation do exists as confirmed in many cases . Both Kentrul Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have many similarities in so many ways. As such Guru Devotion, spreading Dharma , building of Kechara Forest Retreat , building of Big statues and so forth to benefit more people. Following Guru’s advice coming to Malaysia to a place unheard of to spread Buddhism teachings . We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia and able to learn Dharma. A beautiful write up of a Great Lama where many of us will benefit reading it.
    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this information.

    Sakya tradition have been long relyed on Dorje Shugden since the 17 centuries with the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen who enthroned and worshipped Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. Its has proven that Gelugpas are not the only sect who practice Dorje Shugden. They are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They are have built chapels , composed prayers and pujas to him and even propagated Dorje Shugden practice . They cannot be wrong after all. Dorje Shugden is definitely not evil or spirits , those High Lamas will have the clairvoyance to see the very true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is as Avalokiteshvara, a fully enlightened being which is confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen. The 31st Sakya Trizin who composed the Dorje Shugden kangsol text is still widely used to this day.
    Interesting read which I do enjoyed reading from time to time to understand more so as to increase my knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting write up.

    Thai King, Such A Great Monarch!

    I have admired this great Monarch, leader and Dharmaraja since I first read of him many years back. I do not admire him in a political capacity. I am not into politics nor get involved. My post here on him is not as a political figure. But my admiration for him is as a great human being, a kind hearted person and someone who works for others. My praise of him is as a great human being. He is a great hero for me. I admire people who use their lives for others.

    Vajra Yogini Daju or self initiation

    Self initiation purifies ones vows taken before, mends them, re affirms them, and powerful to purify many downfalls in general that prevent attainments from one’s practice. Also you may retake your mantra count commitment if it was broken.

    You plant the 4 types of initiations into one’s mindstream. It is necessary for the Lama also to do daju prior to conferring Vajra Yogini’s initiation to others.

    It is a powerful tantric practice to restore one’s practice from time to time to assure success in one’s sadhanas.

    Baha’i faith started in Iran in the early 1800s and ended up with its spiritual locus, by accident of empire in modern Israel. It is a faith that embraces all major religions, positing that God enlightened humankind over the ages by sending prophets – Abraham, Zoroaster, Krishna, the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. As noncontroversial as that may seem, it hasn’t prevented Baha’is from being persecuted, mostly in Iran, where they are regarded as apostates. The problem is with the idea that the Creator sent a messenger after Muhammad.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

  • This is a special ‘carpet’ for dogs that you hide their snacks and they have to go digging for it. It is challenging and fun where they use their nose, paws and all to dig and find the snacks in between. This dog play carpet is ordered online. You can see little Zopa baby who is a Kechara resident doggie looking for the snacks in this cute video. She is kept busy and entertained! Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 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
