(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Thich Nhat Hanh is an expatriate Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk. A teacher, author, and peace activist, Nhat Hanh was born in central Vietnam on October 11, 1926. He joined a Zen monastery at the age of 16, studied Buddhism as a novice, and was fully ordained as a monk in 1949. The title Thích is used by all Vietnamese monks and nuns, meaning that they are part of the Shakya (Shakyamuni Buddha) clan. He coined the term Engaged Buddhism in his book Vietnam: Lotus in a Sea of Fire. This is what he says about the “impermanence” and mindfullness. Enjoy reading and know about impermanence.

LONG LIVE IMPERMANENCE!!!

The Buddha taught that everything is impermanent- flowers, tables, mountains, political regimes, bodies, feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness. We cannot find anything that is permanent. Flowers decompose, but knowing this does not prevent us from loving flowers. In fact, we are able to love them more because we know how to treasure them while they are still alive. If we learn to look at a flower in a way that impermanence is revealed to us, when it dies, we will not suffer. Impermanence is more than an idea. It is a practice to help us touch reality.

When we study impermanence, we have to ask, “Is there anything in this teaching that has to do with my daily life, my daily difficulties, my suffering?” If we see impermanence as merely a philosophy, it is not the Buddha’s teaching. Every time we look or listen, the object of our perception can reveal to us the nature of impermanence. We have to nourish our insight into impermanence all day long.

When we look deeply into impermanence, we see that things change because causes and conditions change. When we look deeply into non-self, we see that the existence of every single thing is possible only because of the existence of everything else. We see everything else is the cause and condition for its existence. We see that everything else is in it.

From the point of view of time, we say “impermanence”, and from the point of view of space, we say “non-self”. Things cannot remain themselves for two consecutive moments, therefore, there is nothing that can be called a permanent “self”. Before you entered this room, you were different physically and mentally. Looking deeply at impermanence, you see non-self. Looking deeply at non-self, you see impermanence. We can say, “I can accept impermanence, but nonself is too difficult”. They are the same.

Understanding impermanence can give us confidence, peace, and joy. Impermanence does not necessarily lead us to suffering. Without impermanence, life could not be. Without impermanence, your daughter could not grow into a beautiful young lady. Without impermanence, oppressive political regimes would never change. We think impermanence makes us suffer. The Buddha gave the example of a dog that was hit by a stone and got angry at the stone. It is not impermanence that makes us suffer. What makes us suffer is wanting things to be permanent when they are not.

We need to learn to appreciate the value of impermanence. If we are in good health and are aware of impermanence, we will take good care of ourselves. When we know that the person we love is impermanent, we will cherish our beloved all the more. Impermanence teaches us to respect and value every moment and all the precious things around us and inside of us. When we practice mindfulness of impermanence, we become fresher and more loving.

Looking deeply can become a way of life. We can practice conscious breathing to help us be in touch with things and to look deeply at their impermanent nature. This practice will keep us from complaining that everything is impermanent and therefore not worth living for. Impermanence is what makes transformation possible. We should learn to say, “Long live impermanence”. Thanks to impermanence, we can change sufferings into joy.

If we practice the art of mindful living, when things change, we won’t have any regrets. We can smile, because we have done our best to enjoy every moment of our life and to make others happy. When you get into an argument with someone you love, please close your eyes and visualize yourselves three hundred years from now. When you open your eyes, you will only want to take each other in your arms and acknowledge how precious each of you is. The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.

We have to nourish our insight into impermanence every day. If we do, we will live more deeply, suffer less, and enjoy life more. Living deeply, we will touch the foundation of reality, nirvana, the world of no-birth and no-death. Touching impermanence deeply, we touch the world beyond permanence and impermanence. We touch the ground of being and see that which we have called being and non-being are just notions. Nothing is ever lost. Nothing is ever gained.

    We used to think impermanence is something negative and depressed. What making us suffered are our perception and our selfish mind which we want things the way we want it to be.

    We know that everything changes, nothing remains without change. Because of this, everything is possible. Such as the example given, a little girl could not grow into a beautiful young lady if things are permanent. When we are able to see changes with wisdom, we can turns away from sufferings.

    Always remember when bad things happened, it won’t always be this way. Take a deep breath and move forward. When things are good, it won’t always be this way too. Show our gratitude and continue to be the person who gives kindness and loves to everyone.

    It’s so insightful and make great sense. One should understand the meaning of impermanence. For me,If we could truly cultivate into understanding of impermanence, life will be in harmony and our mind will be in peace. Though living in samsara we suffer, if we transform our mind to positive, we gain realization and we will work for it. What I think, impermanence is a very good practice of our mind transformation, realized and change.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful article of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. 👍🙏

  3. Sharon Ong on Jul 19, 2016 at 12:40 am

    I respect Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh very much as this gentle, unassuming monk is able to give profound teachings in a simple and easy to understand manner, very much like my own Guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche.

    This teaching on impermanence is a beautiful read as I happened to stumble upon it on a day like today where the teachings are even more meaningful. While many know and can understand what impermanence is on an intellectual level but to fully appreciate impermanence, we need to translate it into actions and deeds that are beneficial and bring happiness to others.

    Thank you with folded hands.

  4. Wah Ying on Jul 17, 2016 at 12:43 am

    We might think impermanence is “bad guy” that makes us lost our loved ones, our youth, our time, our health and everything…Therefore many won’t like the idea of talking about impermanence, hope everything is this world is permanent and remain as they are, not changing at all. If that’s the case, everything bad will remain bad – bad weather, bad financial situation, bad government, and any bad circumstances happen now in our life. Even flower or vegetables in our garden will not grow, if everything is going to remain forever the same as yesterday and before yesterday.

    Realising nothing is going to remain forever the status/stages they are, we learn to treasure the good people, good life, good health we are having now. That’s a better way of enjoying and appreciating life.

    As Thich Nhat Hanh said, impermanence makes everything possible, changes suffer to joy. Thus we thank to it, and we should learn to accept it, and “appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness”.

    小的时候,时常听到长辈提到什么无常的。

    就好像一朵花会开,会无常的花谢(或是死了),就没有痛苦了。

    原来当时的我已经误解了无常的意思。其实,佛法是让我了解到我们必需面对真像,面对现实。我们要明白让我们痛苦的是我们自己认为每件都是永恒的 (What makes us suffer is wanting things to be permanent when they are not)。其实它不是,刚好相反。

    感恩Rinpoche 的分享,让我更明白无常的真正的存在。

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 25, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Brilliant article that talks about self and links it with impermanence thank you RInpoche for sharing this with us. Thich Nhat Hanh really can deliver the dharma really well. Mark of a realised master.

  7. grace (KSJC) on Aug 17, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    I love the statement mention by Thich Nhat Hanh “impermanence teaches us to respect and value every moment and all the precious things around us and inside of us. When we practice mindfulness of impermanence, we become fresher and more loving” . It explained the concept of impermanence in simple but easy understand way..method have to teach us, we have to practice in our daily life to make it meaningful to us and our friend around us.

  8. JP on Jul 7, 2012 at 4:41 am

    “Impermanence is more than an idea. It is a practice to help us touch reality.”

    I like this statement very much. Although I may understand impermanence as I read the article, I noticed that I am not mindful of it every second of the moment. As a result, I get carried away by reacting negatively to certain people’s behaviour and situations. I am not conscious of reality.

    I realised that being mindful is very important because it makes me apply what I’ve learnt. In this case, if I am constantly mindful of impermanence, I would appreciate people around me more and have more patience. I would also be empowered to live my fullest potential and beyond.

  9. patsy on Oct 9, 2011 at 11:52 am

    Impermanence – nothing good or bad last forever.Every seconds the clock ticks away, my body and situations changed. Everything that happened became a dream……

    Understanding impermanence makes me not so attached to my anger, pain and sufferings as I know that it will not last forever. I appreciate life better and try to make every moment of my life more meaningful and beneficial instead of wasting away. Life is uncertain, death is so I try not to procrastinate what i want to achieve. What if I were to die tomorrow? Will I have any regrets? If the answer is yes, than I have not really understood impermanence.

    I like the advise from Ven Thich Nhat Hanh “When you get into an argument with someone you love, please close your eyes and visualize yourselves three hundred years from now. When you open your eyes, you will only want to take each other in your arms and acknowledge how precious each of you is. The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.”
    By then I will be gone. I cannot take back what I have done in the past but I will take this advice to heart and put into practice now before it is too late.

  10. William on Oct 8, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    I read this article again and it hit me that Impermanence is really happening in our daily lives and that I change every second of the day. My mind condition, my body and all things around me which make it never the same all the time. This is a great cos i have the opportunity to change the sufferings into joys, as stated by Ven. Thich.
    Nowadays I am not so affected when things change or does not go according to plan. Of course i still get agitated but i am able to catch myself from this feeling and be more mindful of my feelings and actions. Just gotta practice it. Thank you Rinpoche for this article teaching.

  11. Doreen Teoh on Oct 5, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Knowing that impermanence exist, I realise that I will not be in any form forever, as if there is impermanence, I will stay this form forever. As such, I have no form, if there is I will not grow old, I will stay the same when I was born. If there is permanence, I will not grow old….And our awakened mind is permanence. [reply]

  12. Cynthia Ng on Oct 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    “When you get into an argument with someone you love, please close your eyes and visualize yourselves three hundred years from now. When you open your eyes, you will only want to take each other in your arms and acknowledge how precious each of you is. The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.”

    Yes, this remind me very deep of IMPERMANENCE! We have to change our negative mind to positive mind just think of IMPERMANENCE. So that we don’t waste our time and affort in argument but think deeply how can we change and make people more happy.

    I will practice “IMPERMANENCE” daily to be vigilant myself to be a better person.

  13. Melvin on Oct 3, 2011 at 6:09 am

    Over the past few months, I have been getting into arguments over silly things with a loved one, not realizing how each argument was making the relationship deteriorate. It was primarily me getting mad at certain things because I wanted a sense of security and permanency in the relationship. Not realizing impermanence, I have acted pretty badly.

    It really hit home when Ven Thich Nhat Hanh said, “When you get into an argument with someone you love, please close your eyes and visualize yourselves three hundred years from now. When you open your eyes, you will only want to take each other in your arms and acknowledge how precious each of you is. The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.”

    300 years later… 100 years later… even 10 years later, or 10 months later, we may be gone. When I read this, I realized how ignorant I have been. I can’t take back what I have done in the past, but to close my eyes and think about the day it will end… I must be a kind person today, here and now. There is no other time, before its to late.

  14. Ethan Chu on Oct 3, 2011 at 5:26 am

    What a clear and wonderful teaching on impermanence. I used to think that “Yes, everything is going to fade away someday, so I should go experience life to the fullest.” But in a wrong way, then I begin to have more holidays, more food, more material gains because they are “impermanence” and fades away. It begins to have a lot of “me” time… Not knowing the true meaning of impermanence, more attachments are actually created.

    Now, I love contemplating on impermanence these days, not only it helps to reduce anger and attachment, I am given a second shot in life to do something beneficial for others. Very simple, because life is precious and since we can not even hang on to “anything” in life… So why not do something meaningful in our lives? Because if there is a mind, there must be a cause of how the mind exist, then there must be reincarnation, if there is reincarnation; there must be animals, spirits, humans, gods and Buddha.

    So whatever we are doing now, determines what happen next. We can choose.

  15. Adeline Woon on Oct 2, 2011 at 11:40 am

    Without impermanence, there is no hope for life. Impermanence helps me to see and improve my good qualities and gave me strength to reduce and eventually eliminate my negativity.

    I contemplate impermanence before I go to bed every night, after I reflected on what I’ve done in a day. This contemplation of impermanence reminds my that this “I” is subject to change and it is in existent because of the coming together of different “atoms”. I tried to integrate impermanence with emptiness, contemplate that a person or things merely exist due to the joining of various conditions. Because conditions are subject to change, therefore a person or things are impermanence. But, if it is impermanence, how come I still feel that this “I” is solid? I think the problem is due to the mind grasping onto this body. Because the mind is unaware of the emptiness aspects of this body, therefore it holds onto the body as if it is undestroyable. Through “scanning” my body from top to toe with an alert mind, sometimes I feel the energy flow of the body and no body, so to speak. This, I guess is the mere touch of the emptiness side of the body. Throughout this contemplation, I constantly remind myself on impermanence of the body, speech and mind. With this in mind, I contemplate death, if I haven’t fallen asleep by then, LOL.

    Inspired by Tsem Rinpoche on his post “Dear Henry, Contemplate Daily” (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/dear-henry-contemplate-daily.html), I tried to contemplate my death creatively, like my top bunk collapse onto me and smash me into pieces, hehe. This helps me to let go of the unpleasant experience I had in a day and rejoice in my good deeds, so that I can die without regret if my death comes when I sleep.

    When I wake up in the morning, I contemplate on impermanence that today is a new day, that any positive thing can be happening. What happened yesterday are in the past and I can make things better for today. I then remind myself the only reason I am breathing and alive is to do good to benefit others. This reminder is inspired by HH the 14th Dalai Lama from his book “Become Enlightened”. With this reminder “pop-out” first thing when I am awake, whatever I do in that day, I will do it happily (most of the time with an undisturbed mind), even if I got blamed for nothing, in a way, hehe.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post on impermanence. I met Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh in April this year and I have learned to be mindful of my actions and negative feelings, and to embrace my negativity like a mother comforting a crying child. Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh is a real practitioner. You can definitely feel his compassionate and peaceful energy in present!

  16. Lim Han Nee on Sep 30, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this teaching on the Mindfulness of Impermanence by Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh.

    I love the poetry in his teaching. His ‘engaged Buddhism’ comes to the forefront here too. He urges us to engage in total,by bringing our full awareness to each experience. From a lovely flower to one’s beloved,to an encounter with an angry being, if we bring the practice of mindfulness of impermanence to every fleeting moment of each day, then we will live the moment deeply and fully,experience less pain and suffering, enjoy life more and gain greater peace.

  17. Uncle Eddie on Sep 30, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Realising impermanence creates the reason for us to practise and to exert ourselves in order to free ourselves from further sufferings. Of the aspects of impermanence, subtle momentary changes of existence are very hard to ascertain. Awareness of death, the most important example of loose form of impermanence is of course very difficult to realise. As stated in the Dharma teachings of Lord Buddha, the four characteristics of impermanence in samara are:- (i) That which is collected seperates into its components. (ii) Birth inevitably leads to Death. (iii) High position later leads to a lower position, and (iv) meeting leads to parting. Only upon the attainment of Nirvana do all Karma an transience come to an end. Invariably for anyone, of all incentives for Dharma practice, the greatest is for the awareness of Death! All Buddha’s teachings are the methods to overcome delusions, the source of all fears. In this way,we can gain control and will have no cause to fear.

  18. ng on Sep 29, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    1) when i get stuck in a traffic jam, and i think “i’m gonna be stuck here forever !” . then i think of impermanence… nah. not going to happen.
    2) when I’m waiting ages for the food in the restaurant to arrive, and i think ” arggh ! the food will never get here ! ” then i think of impermanence .. the food will get here eventually.
    3) when I think of my loved one, and think “i will love them forever !” , then I think of impermanence , and feel sad. Eventually we would have to part. I wish I had buddha’s powers .. then i can make that happen.

  19. henry ooi on Sep 29, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    “When you get into an argument with someone you love, please close your eyes and visualize yourselves three hundred years from now. When you open your eyes, you will only want to take each other in your arms and acknowledge how precious each of you is. The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.”

    The above para is a stark reminder for me when I encounter a similar situation in future.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for teaching Impermanence and for posting this article as a reminder.

  20. waimeng on Sep 29, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Thich Nhat Hant looks like Lama Tsongkhapa in a way 🙂
    Without impermanence everything is monotonous unchanging, I think we all be bored. Imagine staying as a child of 2 forever, small and need others to help you. Through impermanence we can evolve to a better less selfish person, else if we are selfish we can never change that and who like to be remembered for being selfish throughout our lives?

    Becoming a Buddha is also then a possibility.

  21. tenzin llhamo on Sep 29, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a wonderful topic.
    Impermanence exist everywhere from the flowers dying to our emotions. We get upset easily yet we know that the feelings will dissipate as fast as it came. I will remind myself to read and understand the teachings above again and again. We should always cherish everything and everyone around us because of impermanence. Bringing love, joy and cherishing everything/everyone else are definitely some of the ways to make it better.

  22. M on Sep 29, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Sorry, typo. I meant to write ” …if our mind is till seeing things as permanent…”. To add, having a strong grasp of the significance of Impermanence, helps to combat our own Expectations.

  23. M on Sep 29, 2011 at 11:14 am

    Every day like a lot of people, I recite the 8 Verses Of Mind Transformation. It is impossible to achieve any success in mind training and experience transformation if our mind is still seeing things as impermanent whether we recognize it or not. E.g. by habit, we like or dislike certain people or situations because of our subtle and yet fixed ideas and impression of that person/situation. Except in more extreme cases where how fixed my mind is on things became blatant, I often fail to catch it. This teaching has helped me to remember Impermanence and appreciate that without Impermanence, I can never transform my mind for the better.

    Recalling Impermanence also prepares me to part with everything that I like, need, enjoy, and depend on in my life. This includes this blog, the Guru’s teachings and even the Guru. So every second and every minute detail count.

  24. Dee Dee Quah on Sep 29, 2011 at 7:52 am

    Everyday I try to remind myself things, actions, circumstances are all impermanent. It has helped me let go of angry situations, frustrations. Reading this teaching, I am now reminded to appreciate more the benefits of impermanence eg. enjoy the flower before it is gone, look after ourselves as we will never be in this same healthy physical state tomorrow, use ‘now’ to do something worthwhile as tomorrow, I may not be in a physical position to help others. Thank you for this reminder Tsem Rinpoche.

  25. Han on Sep 29, 2011 at 3:03 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing

    The below texts strike in my mind about IMPERMANENCE the most!
    “Impermanence is more than an idea. It is a practice to help us touch reality.The teaching of impermanence helps us appreciate fully what is there, without attachment or forgetfulness.”

    To me, IMPERMANENCE truly a practice, the practice that help me to let go of attachment,eg money,relationship,material things etc, once mindful that all these are impermanence,when things change not according to what I expect, I accept and do not feel regret and unhappy or emotion about , or grasping on for losing something.

    If I continue PRACTICE IMPERMANENCE,definitely I
    “will live more deeply, suffer less, and enjoy life more.”

  26. Nicholas on Sep 28, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    When I come across to this teaching, it always tells me that nothing will last forever.

    This changes happening now, every second, as I’m typing this reply…

    By saying I understand impermanence doesn’t mean I can accept but by facing it “now” with no complaint, take every single opportunity to care someone, love someone and appreciate someone…I think this show how far I believe in it.

    Knowing things change every moment is also good for us not to take things for granted and we always find ways to improve & move forward.
    By knowing impermanence we might always thought things change without our control but we can make/initiate the changes ourselves for better.
    If we are used to changes in positive way whether things changes in our live it just another unexpected moment to past but we make it meaningful for others and yourself.

  27. KS on Sep 28, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Next time for whatever reason i quarrel with my wife or my father, i will go to the toilet and wash my face, visualise the image of me making offerings to the person(touch wood though,but it will happen. Maybe it’s the way round wahahha..).

    Then i will go back to them and smile like an idiot from my heart. I’m so sure that they will cool down and communicate.. it’ll be a bonus that they smile back at me. 🙂

  28. ngeow chin on Sep 28, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    Mindful of impermanence help to reduce my craving for things I like.
    When it comes to losing things, whether possessions, or face, it also
    cushions the ‘ suffering’ associated with feeling of loss.
    Daily I face disappointment of not getting what I want , losing them, and not able to control any situation fully. Reflecting deeper, there is practical wisdom written here. Problems arise when we lose this wisdom esp in relationships . When attachment sets in happiness is gone !
    From my experiences , I enjoy sunsets, rainbows, a performance etc. We can enjoy temporariness. We don’t want them to last. How exquisite ! Life will be really boring if things all remain static. There will be no creativity and creation. Because everything changes and life is so fleeting, it makes sense to not waste it in doing meaningless things.
    It is also a very good time manager – reminds me to put effort to practice now and with diligence . Even though there is tomorrow , next year , good conditions change anytime and death , impermanence of our life can come sooner than later.

  29. Lily on Sep 28, 2011 at 11:37 am

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for this sharing…

    Used to think since everything is impermanent so why bother… yup. Reading this gives me a new perspective and learning to appreciate the value of the theory of impermanence (easily twisted & misunderstood) better.

    I found this subtle profound para stood out for me as I come to terms with many disappointments in myself and others… “When we know that the person we love is impermanent, we will cherish our beloved all the more. Impermanence teaches us to respect and value every moment and all the precious things around us and inside of us. When we practice mindfulness of impermanence, we become fresher and more loving.” – this is something I often forget and causes a lot of pain, especially when someone you love goes away, dies, or is not the person you thought.

    I’m always so afraid of loving with all my heart because I was afraid of being disappointed… now I can look at the impermanence as a positive thing and not negative and so the fear to love should be transform to the fear not to ever love for that person, moment, could be gone in a blink. Many of us know this in theory but failed countless times to remember and act wisely.
    The next time I’m feeling “not in the mood” or about to get “angry”… shall close my eyes and visualize 100 years from now…

  30. Elsie Toy on Sep 28, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    I first came across Ven Thich Nhat Hanh when one of our Dharma sister pass a photocopy of his teaching for us to read. However, she was reprimanded by her younger brother for reading them. I felt very uncomfortable when I meet up with this family. I am so sorry that I brought this up although it is not connect to here. I am glad that our Dearest Rinpoche shared this with us today for if they have read Rinpoche’s blog I am sure my Dharma Sister will be comforted for reading Ven Thich Nhat Hanh though she was reprimanded. I hope they find peace. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with all of us.

  31. koh hee peng on Sep 28, 2011 at 2:27 am

    Impermanence does make me realise the priority of collec possible on daily basis as there is a possibility that I would hour, minute or second. In this present world of samsara, entertainment everywhere that canbe easily accessible at watching movies. By realising the nature of impermanenc shopping mall or in cinema after work if I manage to go b more time on making offerings to the 3 jewels and recitin buddhas and other prayers to fill up my merit piggy bank. only 3 places that I would go to after death –animal realm hell realm that sufferings are routine activities for one bo that through the understanding of impermanence, I’m ab frustration and feeling of despair whenever I’m stuck in b a period longer than a year, bad situation can be improve situation can become bad anytime.

  32. freon on Sep 28, 2011 at 1:12 am

    Have to really digest this topic properly, get it planted in mind in order to handle daily obstacles. To me, habitually i always hopes that people treat me “impermanently” , meaning appreciate me etc. But, i forget that i tends to treat people “permanently” thus i forget they are “impermanent.” Thus the term “WAIT” is a murderer for me, i know this “murderer” yet i still let its come on my way…

    Thank you for this reminder on impermanence. i like very much the reference “It is not impermanence that makes us suffer. What makes us suffer is wanting things to be permanent when they are not.” I think often we misunderstand impermanence and blame our unhappiness on impermanence when it is our refusal to accept that the nature of everything is impermanence which causes our unhappiness.

    What i like about this article in particular is how impermanence can actually be positive – because everything can change, so can negative situations turn positive. Just because a situation is not good at the moment – eg the political situation referred to above – does not mean that it will always be that way. Likewise, whatever suffering we endure will come to pass, as will every pleasure we are experiencing.

    I say that this article is a good reminder on impermanence because Rinpoche has already taught this to us.. Fortunately, we have constant reminders like this to shake us out of our habitual delusions.

    Thank goodness for impermanence. Without it, life would be “boring”, we would stay mad at the annoying client “forever”, our children will “always” be peeing on the bed, the terrible zit on our nose would “never” disappear. Without impermanence, there would be no way out of samsara (?) This is very thought provoking, must share especially with friends who have everything and complain about everything! =p

    If we learn to say and to accept now “LONG LIVE IMPERMANENCE!”, finally we will be able to say, The IMPERMANENCE died, LONG LIVE Dharmakaya!

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this valuable teaching,

    I did have something pathetic thoughts in my mind before such as if everything is impermanence, then I rather don’t have it so I won’t feel bad when I lost it. Buddhism opens up another angle for me, since everything is impermanence, so we gotta do the best when we can, because when the conditions is not there anymore, we would waste the chance of what we can give.

    I used to live with a motto in Chinese “活在当下” (Live in the present), the definition for me that time was to dare me to do something exciting and new. Now I have a better definition for this motto which is giving the best at every moment, as the current condition is impermanence, you won’t know when you going to lose it but that is not the point, the point is how much you can give, now.

    Dear everyone,

    The most Ven Thich Nhat Hanh is already 85 but looks so radiant and serene. What a spectacular monk and inspiration to so many. May he live a thousand years more. I like this picture of Ven Thich Nhat Hanh as he is in traditional Vietnamese ceremonial robes with a brocade hat reminding us of Tsongkapa’s hat. Unique. The Vietnamese also employ brocades and special robes for high monks. So interesting.

    I came across some a wonderful teaching by Ven Thich Nhat Hanh on Impermanence(posted here) that I would like you to read and comment on my blog space below. I want to know how this talk can be applied to your life? How it would relieve you of some mental burdens maybe or avoid future mental traps….I look forward to see your comments on my blog as well as other people would find your thoughts helpful and interesting.

    Also:

    I found this incredible letter written by Dr Martin Luther King to the Nobel Peace Committee recommending Ven Thich Nhat Hanh as a recipient for Nobel. Wow. The letter is so well written in it’s simplicity, directness and honesty. Please read it and feel the good energy radiating from Dr King and Ven Thich. And did you know they were friends??? I didn’t. They were good friends.

    Please read: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/dr-martin-luther-king-nominate-thich-nhat-hanh-for-nobel-peace-prize.html

    Please read and be inspired. Tsem Rinpoche

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    There is no one that can help us, but us. Methods are given, but whether we grasp, apply and practise it is entirely up to oneself. If we don’t change then there is no point in learning the Dharma.
    A transformed mind is our own best protection. That mind can only come from consistent practice over time.When we see results, we will be encouraged to push ourselves more to practice well.Thank you very much for sharing a good article.

    Wonderful news ……the Chinese government has introduced a plan to encourage and reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, It’s a great move that China has done in the effort to avoid runaway global warming and for health reasons. The climate campaigners has been hoping for it. New dietary guidelines by the Chinese health officials have recommend and advise individuals to limit their meat consumption. As more evidence of chronic diseases such as heart attack, strokes ,hypertension and so forth are related to meat consumption. And for most to maintain a healthy life styles. They also implement dietary guidelines encouraging the general public to consume plenty of cereals, tubers, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits as well. The Chinese government also put up billboards in attempt to reduce meat consumption by highlighting health risks associated with consuming meat. What we eat contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and every one of us is responsible. People nowadays are reducing their meat consumption and opting for vegan and plant-based protein to improve their health . Hopefully more countries will follow China reducing the meat consumption. In a way more animals could be save in the slaughter house. And for the future generations to come .
    Thank you for this wonderful news .

    Different parts of the world have each various interesting traditions and customs which individual will celebrate and follow. Religious festivals like Gadhimai festival, which is an animal sacrificial ceremony, and dog meat festival where dogs are slaughtered to celebrate the summer solstice have gathered cultural significance over the centuries. In Gadhimai festival , they believe that animal sacrifices to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai will end evil and bring prosperity. In Spain bulls festival or the Toro de la Vega, bulls are torture and kill. Same goes to the Pero Palo Festival where scared donkey being dragged unwillingly through the packed streets . Drive hunting where dolphins and whales are caught and killed for their meat. All these are some of the hidden cruelty and crime against animals in the world which many are not aware of it and do not want to know. But with social media , more and more got to know about it and are trying to end all these animals cruelty. The Indian officials are cracking down and trying to stop the transportation of animals for this festivals. It is good that the number of animals slaughtered during the Gadhimai festival has dropped sharply over the years. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year is a gruesome display of the dog meat trade. Chinese officials are doing their best and discouraging people from eating dog meat which is harmful in long term. Recent years there has been a drop in the consumption of dog meat in the China. Many people are aware of the abuses and torture of those poor dogs before been kill as meat. Looking at those pictures in the articles, tells a thousand words of all the suffering of these animals in the moment before death.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this sharing raising awareness of animals been abuse , torture and so forth.

    For centuries, humans have been gazed at galaxies and peered deep inside atoms for more answers to the space. No one knows for sure what it is up there. Scientist, astronomers and so forth are busy scanning the skies for more discoveries and seeking answers to the mysteries of space. World scientists are doing experiments in an effort to gain insight of it. After years of exploration , they are still looking for more discoveries. Interesting discoveries……..of the dark energy, eagle nebula , galaxy , UFO and more of what is existing beyond our imagination.

    Peter Byrne is an absolute legend , been an icon, in search for Bigfoot, yeti and Sasquatch or abominable snowmen of the Himalaya. He was a real icon questing for the truth about the Yeti or snowmen. Since his much younger years , he was fascinated in the unknown and the mysterious that turned hunting as a hobby. In one of his hunting trip , he came across a tiger suffering that changed his whole life. From that time he stopped the cruel act of killing animals , ending his 16 years of hunting and founded a non-profit organization called the International Wildlife Conservation Society. He has lived a long and dedicated life in the conservations of animals and in the pursuit of searching for Sasquatch, Yeti and so forth. For decades, he search for Bigfoot, Yeti in the Himalayan has become more of a hobby for him. He has written multiple books on Bigfoot and other aspects of his life.

    With the new healing fountain, visitors can bring home the holy healing energy in a bottle. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Kechara for making this Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain available for everyone.

    This article really inspired me, every year we live is formative year for us as it affects our future life, so we should really let go those bad influence from our parents. What Rinpoche wrote is so true, most of us are either positive or negative after getting influenced by our parents.

    Dharma will make us face ourselves, acknowledge our weak and negative aspects of character and will then guide us to move forward in a positively transformative direction.Thank you very much for sharing this good article with us.

    Ratsag Monastery is a popular pilgrimage site located in the Yab Valley in Tolung near to Lhasa, Tibet. Its a beautiful place located with interesting history behind it. It’s the statue of Vajra Yogini that attracted many pilgrims there. This monastery been built to purify the heavy negative karma associated with Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa (1016-1128 CE) by the locals who is well known for introducing the Vajrabhairava-Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet.
    Interesting read of Vajra Yogini scared statues and about the history of the monastery. May the original statue of Vajra Yogini will be returned to Ratsag Monastery one day.
    I did made a trip last May with friends and saw those beautiful scared statues at the monastery. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.
    Thank you Pastor David for this interesting post with the history of the Sacred Vajrayogini Statue been explained.

    Shailendra Dynasty was the name of an influential Indonesian dynasty that emerged in 8th-century Java. Shailendras were active influencer of Mahayana Buddhism whose reign signified a cultural renaissance in the region. The glorious Buddhist monuments was then built across the fertile volcanic plain named as Kedu Plain .
    The most incredible of them all was the massive stupa of Borobudur which is a very popular pilgrimage site for locals, tourist and Buddhist practitioners. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wow ….incredible it took more than 50 years to complete this architectural monument . Read and heard about this amazing monuments and all the beautiful stone inscriptions there. I have not been there before but wish to in the near future. Interesting read of all about this historical information on the Shailendra Dynasty.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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.

    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
