Why in the mountains?

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends around the world,

As you know I love beautiful mountains and dwellings in the mountains. I’ve found some beautiful pictures of mountains, waters and desserts of China. Some are just breathtaking and when I see something beautiful I just want to share with others whom I feel might appreciate it also. This post is of amazing environments I wish I can live in.  You can enjoy the pictures in your own relaxed leisure time. No rush and just enjoy. Just seeing some of these pictures is so relaxing and beautiful.  May I share some the beauty of these places in China with you. Yes, all of these places are in China. China is a land of great ecological diversity. Personally most of the pictures are of forests, mountains and lakes because I personally since a very young age have had a longing to live in the mountains. Let me explain more.

I wish all of you the opportunity to engage in deeper and more retreats as you get older because by retreats, we get closer to our Yidam (personal tutelary deity) and our Buddha within (mind) us. Retreats purify tremendous karma, stabilize our mind, overcome our obstacles, give us real purpose, good preparation for future lives and give us a chance to focus solely on ourselves in a good way. In the correct way. It is the best way to spend the little time we have left. We should always prepare for future lives as taught by the Sage Shakyamuni, Conqueror Tsongkhapa and Heruka Pabongka Rinpoche in Lam Rim. We should be enthusiastic about that because it is for ourselves and we are the only one that can do this for ourselves. Meeting dharma is the result of karma collected in previous lives to afford us this opportunity to prepare. How lucky we are!! That is why I am attracted to mountain retreat houses. In the scriptures it is recommended we do quiet solitary meditational retreats preferably in natural surroundings as it will help us to gain attainments and higher insights. We can do intense meditations in the cities, but we will have to be very advanced in order to remain in concentration. In between meditation sessions, it is important to see clean clear environments and breathe fresh air. Natural environments such among nature very much helps in spiritual development.

So many times in life we want to do something good for ourselves by travelling, eating, getting lots of money, joining parties, dressing up, socializing, vacationing, finding partners, finding name and in the end we end up more unhappy and more bitter than we can imagine. We end up a race against time we have little left of. This is not because we are bad, but because we approached finding happiness in all the wrong places without knowing it. We became more lonely and bitter than when we started. Thanks to our good karma, we found dharma, the most important find in our lives. Happiness only comes from peace we find within by the light of dharma wisdom we have applied. One of the ways to develop  this wisdom is through our spiritual learning, spiritual convictions, contemplations and practice. We have to keep on learning and not stop. We can take it with us. The best thing we can ever do for ourselves is to get closer to our Yidam. And quiet retreats is one of the best ways. Having the fortune to spend time often in retreats contemplating, offering, praying, reciting mantras and focusing on the Yidam is the best way to spend our lives and free time. We have little time left. Our bucket list should be nothing else but to practice dharma because this has the real worth at death. All the great Mahasiddhas of the past gained their great attainments this way. All that we hold holy became holy this way. All that is holy exist to only point this way to us. So they show an infallible method and example to us. We are blessed. We must get closer to our Yidam. This should not be future tense always as we are not devas with immensely long lives. Our minds with the Yidam’s mind must merge by retreats, practice, learning and compassion. This is the best preparation for death and life. And all lives to come.

I have always sought the mountains, lakes, forests and solitude for this. My strong attraction to the mountains is primarily for this reason. I wish to share this with you. Because in the mountains is where there is solitude and one can get away from the hustle and meaningless bustle of samsaric robotic life. Sharing the mountains and the dwellings is to share a spiritual message of retreats and therefore joining with our Yidam with you. I wish to share what makes me happy with you and what will make you happy represented by these mountains/ dwellings. So on this special post I will share beautiful pictures of the mountains that bring back a ‘memory’ of dwellings in mountains perhaps for me from a different time and place. This is my most heartfelt desire and what is deep in me and you are invited. May you all realize and achieve and be loved and love without barriers.

My love, humility and genuine care to all of you. I sincerely wish deeply all of you will gain highest attainments and ascend to Kechara Paradise. May it start when you engage in the practices in natural solitude.

    Very true China is a land of great ecological diversity, home to some incredible mountains. Many of them are famous throughout the world for their natural beauty, history and cultures. Amazing spectacular scenery, many oddly-shaped rocks, natural steep crags and narrow paths that’s create a unique scenery.
    Having all these amazing environments Rinpoche have said before that he long to live in and has attracted to mountain retreat houses. In mountains or lakes or even forest to be away from a hectic life where its everyone of us wish to do a quiet meditation. Surrounding by natural surroundings would be a wonderful place to engage in retreats. Well , Kechara Forest Retreat fix in this , a place away from city life where the air is fresh .Thanks, Rinpoche for creating such beautiful place for all of us to be engage in dharma practice ,retreats and so forth.
    Thanks again with folded hands, Rinpoche for this sharing with many spectacular sceneries of China mountains and a short teachings as well.

  2. S.Prathap on Aug 15, 2019 at 4:06 pm

    Thank you very much for sharing the nice and wonderful views of China.China is truly beautiful country.
    I believe when we are actually in the nature as these pictures,we can calm ourselves down and easy to find inner peace.For this life time we always have to prepare for future lives and always bare it in our mind.

  3. Lin Mun on Nov 2, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching and reminding us to do more retreat so we can connect with our yidam. Yes it is true that we spend most of our time on other things thinking those will give us long term happiness but it will not help us in time of death. Only practising dharma will help us. I am grateful and thankful to Rinpoche for building KFR so many people will have opportunity to do retreat in a quiet, serene and peaceful place.
    Also thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the beautiful pictures. Just looking at the pictures can immediately relax my mind.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 20, 2016 at 2:34 am

    Breathtaking scenery in China, thank you Rinpoche.

    Such scenery can really inspire the spiritual adherent just looking at the view, one can feel invigorated and also really pumped to do more.

  5. Anne Ong on Sep 25, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    Thank you my dear Guru for sharing these beautiful pictures and scenery. I do feel very peaceful,calm and happy to see the scenery. Very good to live in these places to practice meditation and away from stress in the city life.I love the lakes,waterfalls,rainbows and hear the birds singing.How nice if i could have my own small hut near KFR in the future for my practice and to be near Rinpoche and my dharma family 🙂 _/\_

  6. Pema Thinley on Aug 11, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    Thank you So much, Rinpoche. The pictures are really inspiring and give the instincts of naturalness. I just love it looking at them. Doing retreats in those places would be much deepening and wonderful lah. Thank you for your great compassion for ignorant beings like us _()_

  7. Uncle Eddie on Aug 8, 2016 at 8:00 pm

    Its so completely exhilarating and exciting just by looking at the magnificient photos taken from these beautiful Flora and Fauna breath-taking views of beautiful China. Now we can understand why Rinpoche always love beautiful mountains and dwelling in the mountains and waters and lovely deserts of China. Meeting Dharma as said by Rinpoche is the result of Karma collected in our previous life. In scriptures, it is recommended that we quietly do our solitary meditation retreats, preferably in natural surroundings, as it will help to gain attainments and higher insights! Doing it in the cities require clear firmed concentration of attention, due to existence of noise pollution! It is also pointed out that in-between meditation session, it is important to see clean environment and breathe clear/ clean/fresh air! Natural clean environment such as those shown are those amongst the display in helping out in the spiritual development. Our bucket list should be nothing else but to practice Dharma, because this has the real worth of death. The best thing we can ever do for ourselves is to get closer to our Yidam. Quiet retreat is one of the best ways as said! It is said that all great Mahasiddhas of the great past gained their attainments this way. Thank you Rinpoche, for the sharing and caring. Its truly stimulating and wonderful!

  8. Pastor KH Ng on Aug 8, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    With the “noise” that we hear, feel, perceive and distracting to ourselves, living in cities, towns and even villages, amongst families and friends; with communication so “advance” now, one can hardly have the environment and time to have the peace to find our true “self”.

    Traditionally, all great religions, especially Buddhism advocate peaceful solitude in the mountains, living in caves or simple dwellings to achieve this peace of mind and to further one’s advancement in one’s practice.

    Kechara Forest Retreat is one such place.

  9. sonny tan on Aug 8, 2016 at 10:06 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for presenting to us in pictorial form some of the hills and mountains in China these pictures are breadth taking, very inviting and looks magnificent it would be exhilarating if one could visit these places.
    The flora and fauna of such natural environments is hard to describe and difficult to imagine unless one is there in addition with the crisp mountain air, the tranquility and greenery atmosphere is very alluring and when once one see this majestic mountain it would immediately help transform the troubled mind. It is a well-researched and an accepted fact that up in the mountains, negative ions are abundant which can help elevate a person’s mood and put one into a more serene mode.
    Many years ago I had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon; it is one of the most memorable national parks that I have ever visited. It is one of the world’s seven wonders and very little changes were done to the Canyon as they want to maintain its natural environment. Reindeers are seen everywhere and they move freely among the visitors without any hindrance or frightened by the visitors. The park rangers have managed to blend well modernization with nature without disturbing much of its ecological environment.

    We are indeed very fortunate to have the merits to meet the Dharma again in this life and to be able to cross path with Rinpoche. Indeed we are very lucky to have Kechara Forest Retreat conceptualised by Rinpoche for the reasons being said by Rinpoche above, the wish for to engage in serious Dharma practices, to eventually connect with our yidam and to be one with them in retreats.

    It is true that being away from the city, and retreating ourselves from samsara and living in KFR makes me realise how actually little we really truly need in life to be truly at peace, contented and happy. So many who came to KFR always brings back something positive and leaving more revived. And after awhile you actually detest going to the city that is filled with anger, rage, business, like headless chickens everyone seems to yearn and crave for something to fill up the void. Looking for happiness in all the wrong places, only to discover it does not satisfy anything but makes us crave for more. The more becomes more emptiness and in the end.

    We have much to grateful for here in Kechara, thank you Rinpoche.

  11. victoria lam on Jul 31, 2016 at 8:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for sharing the beautiful and magnificently views of China.

    We are too much distraction from the material and cities lives. Sometimes, we might forgot hot appreciate the nature’s. We are fortune to learn dharma and practice. We may realized from retreats to help us to detached from our desire.

    Therefore,engage deeper from retreat, is to help us to reconnect the natures where we shall belong and come from. Always stay close with our Yidam and Guru devotion in our heart.

    Thank You.

    Humbly bow down with folded hands. _/\_

  12. Freon on Jul 26, 2016 at 2:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos. Nature is so beautiful. We are blessed now to have live in this beautiful planet.

    To be able to learn dharma and work for dharma is truly a blessing. In this lifetimes, there are many distraction, noise that make us very easy to be away from dharma. And, to lost ourself in chasing to fulfilled the desire we wanted.

    When I look at the beautiful scene, I wish i could be there. Before dharma, i wish i can be at those beautiful scenery to just relax. But now, with guidance from Rinpoche, i knew i could be in these beautiful places for more meaningful reason- i can engage in a retreat! To be able to engage in retreat, and the retreat methods that we learned are from the authentic lineage, it is really a very rare opportunity.

    Thinking on doing retreat, I am lucky that i have this opportunity to do retreat in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). I wish i can engage in more retreat in this place is that full of blessing. I thanks Rinpoche for created such beautiful place for sentient beings to be engage in dharma.

    These beautiful photos are the scenery from China. I wish, China’s people could have the opportunity to do retreat in these scenery and get close to Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage.

    Thank you

    With folded hands, love
    Freon

    Thanks for the lovely scenes, and wish we are out there. Some of the scenes are so serene and invoke some level of peace and calmness in us.

  14. Eric kksiow on Jul 21, 2016 at 11:50 pm

    Such a lot of beautiful places in China, that’s really giving us the feeling of peace or calm.

    I like this article because of Rinpoche shared these :
    I wish all of you the opportunity to engage in deeper and more retreats as you get older because by retreats, we get closer to our Yidam (personal tutelary deity) and our Buddha within (mind) us. Retreats purify tremendous karma, stabilize our mind, overcome our obstacles, give us real purpose, good preparation for future lives and give us a chance to focus solely on ourselves in a good way. In the correct way.

    For this life time, we always have to prepared for future lives. That’s i always bare it in mind.

    Thank You Rinpoche for the beautiful teachings and beautiful images from China.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the pictures.

    Few years ago I like to challenge people why can’t we have retreat at City and why go mountain ? To me forest is not effective to train your mind because not many disturbance . However after I gone through had meditation is city, I realised that unless you have a very good concentration otherwise the disturbance is really disturb your mind a lots.

    The feeling is also good having retreat in forest which you can really connect to nature, feeling open when the space is big. Breathing the fresh air in forest can also calm the mind. It is better to have meditation in the forest.

    Lastly, I pray that I can always get closeto our Yidam and have opportunity to do lots of retreat.

  16. Pastor Chia on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:57 pm

    I’m glad have opportunity work and living at Kechara Forest Retreat when first started building it. KFR is surrounded by green nature and mountain, feel peaceful and quiet. It suitable to claim down our mind, doing meditation and retreat.

    I agree what Rinpoche has said ;When the death coming, the only way we can find help from our spiritual practice, which engage more in our yidam practice and merge with his mind stream. Having the fortune to spend time often in retreats contemplating, offering, praying, reciting mantras and focusing on the Yidam is the best way to spend our lives and free time. We have little time left. Our bucket list should be nothing else but to practice dharma because this has the real worth at death.

  17. Mingwen on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:53 pm

    I’ve always been a fan of mother nature, she is just adorable, beautiful and charming, ONLY, when we treat her as good as she treated us initially. It’s sad to witness how we are destroying and hurting the mother nature. The ego and laziness of human being are just overwhelming and unbearable, hence, the mother nature is reacting to ours actions, etc., frequent of strange weather and natural disasters. If we continue to be like how we are, hurting the nature, not long later, natural landscapes and the beauty of mother nature and human being will become dust.

    If everyone of us is willing to contribute a little but, by summing up all the contribution, it will be a big step to save the mother nature.

    Be the light, don’t wait for the light. ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    Indeed all the pictures are very beautiful and give a peace and calm feeling. It’s very nice to be able to do retreat in such nature environment. Personally I love mountain and forest and it always give a great free mind feeling. With such surrounding what important is to provide us the conducive environment for our mind to be able to focus in our meditation in order to achieve the desirable result.

    That’s also why Rinpoche build Kechara Forest Retreat to provide a conducive environment not just for us to do meditation but also an institution of Buddhist philosophy and healing place to develop our mind.

  19. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    The amazing landscape is just awesome! It would be fortunate to live in such a natural, clean environment.

    Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), is one of the many departments and divisions conceptualised and founded by Rinpoche. Here in KFR, Rinpoche wishes to build a physical place of higher learning based on the principles of Buddhism. KFR is ideal for personal and group meditation, spiritual retreat, relaxing retreat from city life for the whole family, or simply just a weekend getaway from work.

  20. Pastor Antoinette Kass on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these magnificent pictures. Mountains and nature are a peaceful environment and conducive for our mind to be calm and focus on what is important.

    We often think that taking a holiday break or traveling is beneficial, but in the end it has no lasting result. Yet, in a retreat we improve our mind, clear obstacles and collect merits for our spiritual path. This is long term benefit and really helpful.

    These pictures can help us relax our mind while we get ready for a retreat.

  21. Khoo Hou Haw on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such breathtaking pictures of nature. We are living in a world where everything around us are moving none stop. Cars, people, telecommunications and etc. We hardly have a second of peace in our mind. Looking at these mountain gave me a sense of calmness. I believe when we are actually in the nature as these pictures, we can really calm ourselve down and find the true inner peace. This is why Rinpoche is building Kechara Forest Retreat and also the Inner Peace Program initiated by JP Thong and Li Kheng comes about.

    Thank you

  22. pammie yap on Jul 21, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    Yes, how fortunate are we to have KFR!
    Looking at the photos make me feel so at home and at ease. Its the same feeling that I have when I come into KFR and actually feel the calmness and peace. Ever since living in KFR, going back into the city is such a horror! Everyone rushing to do something and everything is just in a rush.
    Being in KFR and to be able to engage in retreats and doing Dharma is what I would really look forward to, now and in future.
    The photo I like the most is the one with a village surrounding the hills and mountains, just like KFR! And the other ones are the one with a temple on the hill and retreat hut like surrounded by snow.

    Even if it wasn’t for retreats and practices, spending time in nature and in solitary is healing and refreshing. It allows us to experience existence without external distractions and hence this may lead to new discovery about oneself, the people around us, the world we live in be in and our interdependencies.

    There are already more and more people seeking and building communities in natural environments around the world.

  24. Julia Tan on Jul 21, 2016 at 12:28 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this special post. I enjoyed very much the beautiful mountain pictures. Going into the mountain for retreat does help us disconnect with our daily busy, exhausted and tiring life and stay connect with our practice and yidam. That’s how it is like to be in Kechara Forest Retreat where there’s no distractions from the city, the moment we wakw up in the morning we see flower and trees, we smell the fragrance of nature. This make our mind calm and peaceful.

    “In between meditation sessions, it is important to see clean clear environments and breathe fresh air. Natural environments such among nature very much helps in spiritual development.” Kechara Forest Retreat is built to create the environment where we can touch the nature, we can feel the nature, we can breath the nature and we can meditate in the nature.

  25. Li Kheng on Jul 20, 2016 at 4:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these breathaking images. Nature is spectacular and perfect. The ecosystem is whole and sustainable. It is our privilege and honor as well as nature to be connected to Mother Nature. In the hustle and bustle of modern living we forgot that and disconnected. Although Kechara Forest Retreat is very comfortable and safe, It is a perfect piece of nature for city folks like us to reconnect to our source of life spring. It is a great space to hear our Inner voice and uplift our spirit.

    May more people get to know kechara forest retreat and engage in spiritual practices that brings them to greater heights of consciousness

  26. Cynthia Lee on Jul 20, 2016 at 2:00 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    No spectacular architecture nor the art museums can override my wish to see the natural beauty of landscapes. They are just wondrous and have so much more to offer from Rinpoche’s teachings.

    I understand that we do many group retreats in KFR as advised by Rinpoche because Rinpoche is easy on us. Hehe. Support and help in disciplining are one of the benefits of group retreats.

    However, ultimately, solitary retreats are the best ways to face our own demons. I hope I am able to accomplish a solitary retreat one day.

  27. Jacinta Goh on Jul 19, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Since young, I love to prayer. However, I’ve never thought that praying in solitude will bring much benefits to oneself and others. Gaining attainments is not a success in itself but how we are going to use it to further our path to Enlightenment and how we use it to benefit oneself and others. I love scenery view and has always prefer greenery than city view (although sometimes it amazes me in certain ways too). Thanks Rinpoche for these picturesque mountain views. By seeing it, I can already imagine how peaceful one can be. Not being distracted and just being ‘simple’.

  28. Jace Chong on Jul 18, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing about the mountains and many breathtaking photos of China. Now I understand why the mountain views are so important as they help when we are getting closer to our Yidam during retreats.

    I kind of getting this idea when I was doing short retreats in Kechara Forest Retreat. In between breaks we walk around KFR and seeing the beautiful views calm us a lot and we can be more focus during the retreat sessions.

    I always like mountains and lakes too. In some ways, I find being in those environment make me very comfortable (Beside at night will feel a little insecure if didn’t get a shelter in the nature before dark). Here I share some photos taken during my backpacking trip many years ago in beautiful places of New Zealand, some I stayed there for a few weeks.

    I am fortunate that now I understand the significances of the mountains that not only good for the eyes, but they help our spiritual journey too.

    Thanks Rinpoche!

    China is a beautiful country, they are one of the biggest countries in the world, it’s no doubt that sceneries like these exist. I have visited China once, but haven’t had the chance to visit the beautiful mountains and nature. I hope that one day I can make it to China again for a visit in the mountains and indulge in mother nature, just imagining myself abiding in one of the landscapes above, I’m trembling in excitement. China is truly beautiful.

  30. Lew on Jul 18, 2016 at 1:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such beautiful photos of mountains. I have once heard from Rinpoche that people who engage in retreat should have the openness of space. I feel that’s the reason why Rinpoche started Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), a place which is conducive for people to engage in long term retreats. I pray that I can contribute my IT skills to Rinpoche and Kechara, and when I am too old to work, I can have the merits to engage in long retreats.

    After working in KFR for awhile now with the open space, I feel a bit claustrophobia when I got into my little room in my city office. LOL.

  31. Jason on Jul 17, 2016 at 1:34 am

    These photos really caught my eyes at first glance.The scenery really breathtaking.I keep scrolling down to see more pictures. I love it so much. My dream place is like a manjushri on a pond in KFR which have a pond, fish and surrounding by trees.I feel very peaceful in my mind when I approach to the greenery scene.

    Very beautiful scenery, i particulary like the picture with a small village surrounded by greenish mountains. This is the kind of place where i always wanted to be.

    We are indeed very lucky not only to have dharma from our precious guru, we also have Kechara Forest Retreat where we can engage our retreats in nature. Thank you Rinpoche and all the people who is working tirelessly to make this happen.

    The scenery in the photos are beautiful, serene and surreal. There seems to a place for almost every inclinations from my favorite of Tianmen within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in northwestern Hunan Province, China to the beautiful lakes.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for reminding us every now and then to reconnect with nature and retreats, serious retreats which I think not many can undertake. But, we can all aspire to it.

    With folded hands,
    Fong

    Such a feast for the eyes and balm for the soul. There is something very beautiful and calming about mountains that make me sigh with appreciation whenever I see them. This is why I actually enjoy the drive to KFR as we can actually see the green hilly slopes filled with lovely tall rainforest trees.

    Thank you for this post, Rinpoche. Here are some of my fav mountain photos that I would like to share with Rinpoche. Hope that Rinpoche enjoy them. 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for the solemn message that accompanies the serene mountain pictures. I cannot agree more when I read that “So many times in life we want to do something good for ourselves by travelling, eating, getting lots of money, joining parties, dressing up, socializing, vacationing, finding partners, finding name and in the end we end up more unhappy and more bitter than we can imagine. We end up a race against time we have little left of. This is not because we are bad, but because we approached finding happiness in all the wrong places without knowing it.” So much time we have wasted in the wrong place and wrong thing, with the wrong people. If only we have found Dharma wisdom and applied it earlier, then perhaps we will be happier now. There is nothing we can do about the lost time, but we can try to catch up by working harder and more diligently in learning Dharma and applying it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    China is a huge huge country and the landscapes are very varied and beautiful. From deserts, to grassland, to huge long rivers, to tranquil lakes, to tropical and snow capped mountains.

    Whenever I see such beautiful sceneries either in photography or physically, I say a prayer that no man will destroy such natural beauty. Also let there be no easy way to these landscape for if it happens, the beauty will be spoilt by tourists and facilities that will have to be, to provide for them.

    I can imagine having retreats in such wondrous and serene surroundings, peace and tranquility will be there for concentration on our prayers and aspirations.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these breathtaking photos.

  37. samfoonheei on Jul 14, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing…..amazing and very beautiful those mountains and lakes shown above.I do enjoy looking at beautiful mountains and lakes any where i visited.Its so peaceful and quiet i could imagine if one are up in the mountains doing retreat will be just wonderful .Well that is why KFR is where today …far away from the city…..a place call home to many.We are all blessed to have a beautiful place to engage in the practices and retreats.

    With folded hands.

  38. Sofi on Jul 14, 2016 at 1:41 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such beautiful pictures of mountains, lakes, trees and rivers of China. I have always loved visiting China as they are so vast that each place has their own unique scenery. All these pictures just make me wish that I could one day soon have the merits to begin my retreat as Rinpoche described. How wonderful it would be to be in nature enjoying the solitude of communion with the Buddhas, especially when the one within shines forth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your invitation and I do hope that soon I will remember my “memories” and understand my yearnings for my “home”.

    This is a very useful teaching on how to deal with our negative emotion especially anger. Anger causes a lot of problem to us. To know if we have anger is to examine if we have patience. When we are impatience, it is a sign of anger. I never thought these two emotions are related but it actually make sense.

    When we are impatience, we cannot tolerate other people’s fault. Then we get angry with the things they do or say. Our impatience could be caused by our arrogance of thinking we are better. If we really are better, we should be patience to pass and share the knowledge with others. There might be people who have the attitude problem, but this is not something we can change. What we can change is how we feel and perceive.

    Ram is a Nepalese staff working in Tsem Ladrang for many years. He is hardworking, friendly and polite. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche always sees Ram as part of the big family.

    In mid-2016, Ram’s wife in Nepal who was pregnant for 7 months suddenly developed complications, she had to go for operation due to dislocation of the baby in the womb. Ram’s wife and baby were very weak and in dangerous condition, the doctor had no choice but to operate and take out the baby. The doctor …even said EITHER the wife or the baby would survive.

    Ram was very worried and informed Tsem Rinpoche immediately, Rinpoche’s divination showed that both the wife and the baby would survive, and immediately instructed pujas to be done and candles to be lit for both the wife and the baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s mantra strongly to pray for protection for his wife and baby.

    Founded in 1790, Beijing (Peking) Opera has been the main form of Chinese entertainment for over 200 years. It all started when the Four Great Anhui Troupes went to Beijing to perform for the Imperial Court, with the royal families present. Although in this time and age, this beautiful national art form has to compete with blockbuster films, TV drama series, home-made internet films, MTV music videos etc …many, many people in Beijing and most parts of China still appreciate it.

    The Chinese government encourages the younger generation to participate in Beijing Opera, and like Wang Tao Yang (aka “Wonder Kid of Peking Opera”) many of the younger kids seem to have a natural ability for it.

    Manjushri, whose name means ‘Gentle Glory’ or ‘Sweet Splendor’ in Sanskrit; ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ (文殊师利)in Chinese; ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japanese; ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korean; ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibetan) is one of the most important Bodhisattvas in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

    Manjushri is also known as ‘Manjugosha’ (the Gentle-Voiced One); ‘manju’ refers to how the continuum of his life has been rendered ‘gentle’ by his grasp of transcendental wisdom, and ‘gosha’ refers to his perfect ability to communicate the Dharma verbally and in written form, in which he destroys illusions, delusions and ignorance that keep all sentient beings within samsara.

    Tai chi is a mind-body practice that involves a series of slow, flowing exercises that combine movement, meditation, and rhythmic breathing. Although it was initially developed as a martial art, it’s commonly practiced as a form of “moving meditation.” According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, tai chi’s movements can help stimulate the flow of vital energy (also known as “chi”) and, in turn, promote healing from a variety of health conditions.

    Many practitioners of tai chi use this technique to enhance physical and mental health, as well as to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and strength. In addition, tai chi is said to boost mood, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve heart health.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the importance of making offering to Buddha. Many would not put priority on making offering on the altar as preference is always spending the money for ourselves. But we didn’t realise that making offering is directly helping us in our spiritual path and we would be able to generate merits through this process. We should always remind ourselves not to be stingy in making offering but be very generous instead.

    A revelational read about the ugly politics of Potala. Contrary to the general belief of the untouchable holy status of the Dalai Lamas; they were frail and disposable, especially during their younger years. Based on records, it seemed that during those centuries, it was obvious that if the Dalai Lamas succumbed to the control of the upper few like the Regent and the serf lords, he would live long and prosper. If he had a mind of his own or had ideas to reform, then he would be eliminated. Imagine, if the holiest of the holy had not to exchange his free will for survivor and acceptance by the upper few, leave alone the life of others and the commoners. Thank you for this article.

    Anger can cause many problems to us. It is scary to know sometimes we don’t even feel we are an angry person. We wonder why people are walking away from us, the truth is no one wants to be near us because we are angersome, people cannot get along well with us.

    We have to always observe our mind, don’t let our anger eats us up. We are always kind to people we love but we cannot give the same kindness to people who are not related to us or who we don’t like. In order to cultivate kindness, we have to learn to be kind to everyone, regardless if they are kind to us or related to us.

    Buddhist teachings arrived in the country known today as Indonesia in the 2nd Century CE. Buddhism is the second oldest religion after Hinduism in this region. For the most part, Hinduism and Buddhism co-existed peacefully in Indonesia. Before their arrival, the people in this region believed in animism, the belief in the supernatural power of Mother Nature. They regarded trees and stones as sacred objects and used these for worship to connect with their higher power.

    The Buddhist influence was first introduced by the traders and missionaries from Eastern India who travelled to this region via the ancient maritime Silk Road or Silk Route, a route that spanned from China to the Mediteranian Sea and was central to trading and cultural interaction. Over the centuries, for 2,000 years, the traders and missionaries who travelled along the Silk Road played a strategic role in the dissemination of religious beliefs across Eurasia. The traders often built shrines and temples of their own faith during their travels in order to worship their own gods.

    One of the many fascinating and historical festivals in Malaysia is the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. This festival takes place from the first to ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.

    Throughout this nine-day festival, adherents observe a strict vegetarian diet, meditate, study scriptures, interact with fellow vegetarians, and make donations to the temples to show their devotion to the gods. During this festival, many hawkers and vendors set up stalls around the town to sell food and prayer supplies. Many devotees also take this opportunity to donate to various rituals and ceremonies in order to maintain luck, to dispel bad luck, and to show appreciation for the good luck they received in the previous year.

    Among the many countries around the world, Sri Lanka is known for its rich Buddhist culture and heritage. It is where the the ancient city of Polonnaruwa is located, a place where kings ruled Sri Lanka’s central plains more than 1,000 years ago. It was a thriving commercial and religious city from the 11th to the 13th centuries, and the ancient city has many precious relics and Buddha statues.

    The ancient city of Polonnaruwa has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO as it is one of the best planned archaeological relic sites in Sri Lanka, a reputable testimony to the greatness of its first rulers. In 1982, Duran Duran filmed their ‘Save a Prayer’ music video amongst the beautiful scenery there.

    Brief Garden is a hidden paradise in Kalawila Village, located approximately 10 km (6.2 mi) from the resort town of Bentota in Sri Lanka. The garden and the house on the estate was the residence of the famous architect and landscape designer, Bevis William Frederick Bawa (Bevis Bawa) (1909 – 1992). Bevis Bawa was also a military officer by profession, and he served as the personal secretary (Aide-de-camp) to four Governors of Ceylon (the present day Sri Lanka) during the British colonial era.

    Brief Garden is a delight for those who love nature. When visitors walk into the garden, they will be able to enjoy the jungle feel of the garden and its unique sculptures. The house on the estate is cosy and comfortable. Bevis Bawa built the premise with care and the intention to make it his retirement home.

    Malaysian weddings are diverse, unique and colourful affairs, as is to be expected in a country that is a melting pot of cultures and faiths. Generally speaking, wedding customs in Malaysia are determined based on the couple’s race, religion or both. As a large percentage of Malaysians are Malays, and given that Malaysia’s constitution provides that all Malays are to be Muslims, Malay weddings are typically steeped in Malay traditions and solemnised according to the tenets of Islam.

    How we feel should not be affected by what others say about us. Everyone has a different expectation and perception of things. Their comments on us are purely based on their perception, it may be true and it may not be true.

    Our motivation might be misunderstood, but it should not matter. At the end of the day, we create our own karma. If we react to negative comments with negative emotion and behaviours, we are the one who lose out. We should always remember what the 8 verses of mind transformation say, give the victory to others.

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.
    2 yearss 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
