9ft Jade Buddha!

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

On March 15-24, a 9 foot tall (2.6 meters) “Jade Buddha for Universal Peace” will be arriving in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

The Buddha Shakyamuni statue was carved out from an incredible boulder of nephrite jade, discovered in 2000 in Canada. It was 18 tonnes, and many experts called the jade boulder a bonafide rarity as it was just so rare to find such good quality jade of that size.

It was then split into two, where one half was used to carve out a 4 tonne (4,000 kg) Buddha Shakyamuni statue! The artists were Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green, and they based the statue design on an existing one at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya, India.

It took 5 years to carve, but look at the pictures below. It is stunning and meritorious for everyone involved. Do go and pay your respects to this holy image.

PETALING JAYA: The famed Jade Buddha – a 2.6m-tall jade statue, which is also the largest gemstone Buddha statue in the world – will be on exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

The four-tonne (4,000kg) statue was carved out of an 18-tonne (18,000kg) pure Canadian jade boulder by Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green, based on the Buddha statue at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodh Gaya, India.

The Jade Buddha which took five years to carve, has been on a “world tour” since March 2009 to promote the message of peace, and will find its final home at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion in Australia in about four years.

The 10-day exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, which is organised by the Hai Tao Life Foundation, will be held at the Wisma Hrih Lotus, Jalan Pahang, from March 15 to 24.

It is jointly sponsored by the Hai Tao Life Foundation, Australian Embassy and The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Ltd.

The exhibition which is free and open to the public will be held in conjunction with the Sakyamuni Buddha Renunciation Day, which is to commemorate the day when Siddhartha Gautama Buddha became a monk. This year, it falls on March 19.

    Amazing the largest gemstone Buddha statue in the world did have an exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, back in 2013. It is one of the great wonders of the world. Jade Buddha for Universal Peace is one of the most famous and revered in the world. The purpose of exhibiting the Jade Buddha around the world was to raise awareness of Buddhism and promote peace. The Buddha Shakyamuni statue was carved out from an incredible large mass of nephrite jade. This stunning and meritorious craft work took 5 years for those craft-men to carve. Looking at the pictures in the post tells us a thousand words. Merely having a look at this rare gem stones of Buddha is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Hai Tao Life Foundation has organised this event to exhibit the precious Buddha Shakyamuni statue.This was a beautiful and stunning Jade Buddha Shakyamuni statue made from pure Canadian jade boulder. The statue is patiently and nicely carved for about 5 years by Australian Buddhists Ian and Judy Green.

    All the actions above has created vast amount of merit to benefit sentient beings. Hopefully, one day I will be able to see this live.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

  5. Vivian Ong on Mar 6, 2017 at 12:37 am

The Hai Tao Life Foundation, Australian Embassy and The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Ltd.did a good job to promote world peace.From what i see from the images its so beautiful and stunning. Thanks for sharing Rinpoche.995

  7. Chris chong on Jan 20, 2016 at 2:05 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing with us the picture of this magnificent jade Buddha.

    This is truly an outstanding offering to Buddha Shakyamuni. I believe that this Buddha statue will attract alot of non Buddhist to come forth to have a glimpse of it and be blessed by it. It might even sparked up some of the non-buddhist interest in knowing more about Buddhism and some might even generate faith because of this ststue.

    This reminds me of how diverse Buddhism is, in order to attract different groups of people into Buddhism. Those that prefer simplicity and minimalistic way will go for Theravada tradition. Those who prefer magnificent and luxurious Buddha statues will be attracted to Mahayana and Vajrayana tradition. However, all of those tradition of Buddhism is the same at the core, which is Dharma. The same dharma that is being taught 2500 years ago by Buddha Shakyamuni.

  8. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Wow! The craving of the Buddha is just so pretty. It is just so precious to have a Buddha image being craved out of precious jewel like Jade. I am just so happy that this holy image has been shipped all over the world for a world tour.

  9. sweekeong on Apr 11, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    The Jade Buddha is now visiting Penang since April 6. He will be there nine days for public to make offerings and prayers. Anyone who are residing up north should not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to take a glimpse of the Jade Buddha 🙂

    wow! The 9ft Jade Buddha statue is very stunning! I am really happy to know that people loves big Buddha statue because it is really a blessing to see Buddhas images and big Buddhas images/statues bless the surrounding and people and all the beings seen and unseen.

    The material used to carve this statue is very precious, indeed a wonderful offering. Moreover this statue is carved based on the Buddha statue at the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya, India. More people get to see the Buddha statue in Bodhgaya without having to be there. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche! 🙂

  11. vivienne siak moi moi on Mar 21, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Have not heard of a Jade Buddha before but through friends who told me to go for the exhibition which is displaying the JADE BUDDHA. Here I would like to know if still on display, where is it held and the time open for viewing. Would appreciate very much a reply to my email. Thank you. Ami Tuo Foh

  12. Jessica Yap on Mar 20, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    The KP team visited the beautiful Jade Buddha in two groups and both teams found the Buddha statue truly magnificent. When we arrived, there were monks doing pujas and we were so lucky to be able to arrive at the right time. We even got the opportunity to cicumanbulate Buddha Shakyamuni’s holy relic!how wonderful! =)

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  13. William on Mar 19, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha.Very beautiful and lots of effort needed to craft out this beautiful Jade Buddha 9 ft in size. thank you rinpoche for shering.

  18. jennifer on Jan 28, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for the information on the 9′ Jade Buddha exhibition in K.L.

    The photo of the Jade Buddha does depict the almost likeness of the magnificent Buddha in Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya . When i first saw the Buddha statue in Mahabodhi Stupa , i just could not control my tears from flowing – it was a very emotional moment seeing this particular Buddha as it was made closest to the exact image of Buddha himself ! It was the whole feeling of being in the presence of Buddha himself!!

    I will definitely go to this exhibition as we do not get opportunities like this often in Malaysia. (And it’s about time i get all blubbery and emotional – time to have a good cry of happiness !)

  19. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jan 28, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    多么庄严的佛像。 不知道为什么每一次看到庄严的佛像,心里就会感觉到无比的平静与喜悦,虽然看起来佛像好像没有什么表情,可是他由里到外所散发出来的品德,总是让我那么的钦佩,我相信这就是所谓的具足像好的缘故吧。所以,我愿生生世世能遇到佛法,能有能力修行佛法,直到证悟。

  20. Lim (KH JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 3:21 am

    Thanks Hai Tao Life Foundation to hold this exhibition for let all Malaysian may see such holy and precious Buddha Shakyamuni.

    May all Malaysian enjoy peace, harmony and good health with the blessing of Buddha Shakyamuni. And may Dharma growth and flourish in beautiful Malaysia…

  21. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 22, 2013 at 2:07 am

    玉佛,非常壮观的佛像,晶莹剔透,漂亮极了。

    现在虽然很多人为了玉佛的美观而去参观,但也因此,佛法的种子就无形的播种在他们的内心。当某日这颗佛法的种子发芽的时候,这些人就会慢慢踏入佛法之途。可见佛陀的加持力真的非同小可。佛,就像无处不在般,无时无刻都在保佑我们,引导我们得道成佛。

    我们一定要去参观这难得一见的玉佛。期待着!!

  22. grace (KHJB) on Jan 21, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    In the wisdom words of His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama, “Peace starts within each one of us. When we have inner Peace, we can be at peace with those around us”. For endless of years, the Worlds’ enduring monuments are said to have provided us with powerful symbols, reminders of the values, different cultures have treasured most. According to Buddhist tradition, sacred objects such as statues provide a uniquely powerful means by which we can bring to mind the positive attitudes that are essential to the development of loving-kindness. Statues, religious artefacts of Buddhas’ images are used as an inspiration for creating and spreading rememberances and human qualities – for instance, loving-kindness and peace. Incommon with other spiritual paths, Buddhists wish to purify their negative past actions and develop their positive potential for future actions, so they can be of great benefit in the World. By providing inspiration, sacred object make it so easy for this to happen. Thus, it is very important to have sacred objects around us in our everyday life. Just seeing them, they make it easy to stay focused on the goals of creating this store of positive potential, enabling us to bring benefit and peace into own lives, and the lives of those around us. Eventually, they help us to achieve enlightenment.

    This is the first time I heard about Jade Buddha, and after some search on internet, this ins their website: http://jadebuddha.org.au

    This project started back in year 2003, and it took 5 years to complete. You can click on the “Fact Sheet” to find out more about this very special Buddha statue.

    Name “The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace”, may Jade Buddha bring peace and harmony to everyone!

  26. Low ksjb on Jan 20, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.The Jade Buddha statue is indeed remarkable as it is extremely rare to find such a large piece of jade and able to get someone to donate it for such a meritorious cause.I would certainly make the time to pay respect to such holy object when the exhibition is on.

  27. Felix Kong on Jan 20, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Pure Jade Buddha Shakyamuni is very beautiful, i like his smiling 🙂 feel very peace 🙂 Cannot miss this opportunity to meet Jade Buddha Shakyamuni .

  28. Wah Ying on Jan 20, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    It’s magnificent! It’s good Malaysians could pay our visit to this holy image this coming March. Before coming to Kuala Lumpur, the statue has exhibited at over 60 countries in the world…

    Here are details of the exhibition on Hai Tao Life Foundation Facebook:

  29. Martin on Jan 20, 2013 at 12:10 am

    I like the idea of the beautiful statue of the Buddha going on a world tour. So many people will come to benefit by it. It is also interesting to note that Westerners are now so involved in Buddhism and the promotion of Buddhism and Buddhist-based art. To find such a rare jade boulder and then decide to carve a Buddha out of it is admirable and it shows true appreciation of the Dharma.

    All Buddha statues are beautiful but this is especially stunning. So much care and details have gone into it and it would have been a great experience for the artists.

    I would definitely like to go see it.

  30. Davin on Jan 19, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Very beautiful Jade Buddha. Its a great blessing to see this. This is a great opportunity to offer our respect and prayers. I am looking forward to see this stunning 9ft Jade Buddha. Thank you Rinpoche for the post.

  31. Jutika on Jan 19, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    How nice to see a 9ft Jade Buddha touring the world!!! Sadly i did not know that is was coming to Malaysia and missed the chance to get lots of pictures, just by looking at this pictures just really made my jaws totally drop.

    It just wonderful how people are so talented to be able to craft a 9 ft statue totally out of Jade! Loving it totally Rinpoche!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing it as well as the wonderful pictures!

    Love
    Jutika

  32. Frederick Law on Jan 19, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for this post, would not have known that the Jade Buddha is coming to KL if not through this blog.

    It will be an eyeful to be able to see and experience the beautiful and exquisitely carved Jade Buddha Shakyamuni personally, looking at the picture alone is already very amazed with such beauty. Definitely a must see this year.

  33. Junior on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha.Thank you Rinpoche for the post beautiful, peaceful and stunning post of Buddha Shakyamuni.

  34. Alexis@MBF on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    This is the very Jade Buddha that was in Singapore last Feburary that led me to Buddhism.

    I rejoice that more people will benefit from the positive imprints. A must see!

    Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

  35. Alexis@MBF on Jan 18, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    This the very Jade Buddha exhibition that was held in Singapore on Feburary 2012 that introduced me to Buddhism.

    I rejoice that more people will benefit by the positive imprints!
    A must see!

    Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

  36. Darren Kechara on Jan 18, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Very beautiful and lots of effort needed to craft out this beautiful Jade Buddha 9 ft in size. Wonderful work of Hai Tao Life Foundation, Australian Embassy and The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Ltd. to promote world peace message.

  37. Lester Lim on Jan 18, 2013 at 10:11 am

    May whoever behold the jade Buddha gain great bliss and swiftly attain enlightenment.

  38. Girlie Ooi on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Two more months to go before we get to be in His presence.

    Kechara Paradise is arranging to go in a group. We will finalise once our duty roster for March goes into planning.

  39. Adrian Cho on Jan 18, 2013 at 4:45 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post and all nice picture.

    It was so beautiful of the jade Buddha 🙂 Really wanna go have a visit to have a looks of this very interesting statue and wonderful Buddha 🙂 hehe

  40. Judy Lam on Jan 18, 2013 at 1:47 am

    This Buddha Shakyamuni status in jade is stunning! We are very blessed to have the opportunity of paying home to such a beautiful statue in KL. It is without a doubt the crowd will flock to the location when it arrives. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  41. Joy on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:57 am

    Wow… this is remarkably stunning and beautiful indeed. But what’s even more remarkable is that we in Malaysia get to experience this beautiful Buddha body… we are so fortunate actually to be living in a country that is harmonious and that allows all to be spiritual. I rejoice and I’m glad to have this freedom and proud to be Malaysian because of this. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news… will make a visit and pay homage!!!

  42. David Lai on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:09 am

    Woah! This is fantastic! I never knew a jade piece could be so big that they managed to carve a spectacular Buddha out of it. The craftsmanship is superb although the original statue at Bodhgaya did have an even more incredible aura surrounding it. I love Buddhas and I love the fact that this one is so precious and I am sure it is very holy as well.

    One thing I noticed is that the Buddha statue is universally known in interior decor to calm the surroundings down. The Buddha’s serene face and his meditative form imbues a feeling of peace, tranquility and calmness to the surroundings. That’s just a superficial feeling but the Buddha statue can have an even more powerful effect of blessing and planting spiritual imprints upon all who beholds him. This ‘seeds’ will blossom into spiritual practice in this life or future lives where one can meet the right spiritual guides and practice the Dharma.

  43. Erickksiow on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:02 am

    Would like to pay a visit, the statue is so Beautiful.

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche. 🙂

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  44. Andrew Boon on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    What a stunning piece of work! It is wonderful to know that Malaysia will be part of the leg in the World Tour. How meritorious for the people of Malaysia!

    I would certainly love to go pay homage to this Buddha when it arrives…

    It is not an easy feat to transport this really heavy 18 tonne pure jade statue.

  45. tenzin llhamo on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I wont miss this chance! Should get Kechara Paradise colleagues to go visit together. It will be a good experience! To visit and be blessed by such a beautiful Buddha Shakyamuni! Its a must go for many. After 5 years, its worth the wait. Reminded me of the Emerald Buddha in Thailand. I heard that the Queen herself adorn the Buddha 3 times a year at a specific time. Very BEAUTIFUL as well! http://blog.aseankorea.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Emerald-Buddha.jpg

  46. Jessica Yap on Jan 17, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    This is a great opportunity for us to pay the sacred beautiful Buddha a visit or offer our respect and prayers! KP staff are planning a trip where we all go together to view this beautiful statue. Heeh can’t wait!!!!
    Thank you Ian and Judy for having such a beautiful initiative to share this spectacular piece with all of us around the world. And without admission fee too! How kind! =)
    Will defitnitely post pictures here we we do go.
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche! Hopefully we get to go with Rinpoche too.

  47. Milly on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    An incredibly beautiful Shakyamuni Buddha. The Australian artists are so blessed to be able to carve such a holy image. May all who sees this holy Shakyamuni be blessed and planted with the seed of Enlightenment.

  48. MayOng on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    I can’t help but admire the original dark green color of this piece of jade of Buddha Shaykamuni. May all be blessed by laying their eyes upon this beautifully sculptured statue when it arrives here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

  49. patsy on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news. The Jade Buddha will also be on exhibition in Penang for 10 days starting 6 April.

    May all those who see and pay respect to this holy image be planted with the seed of enlightenment.

  50. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    This Jade Buddha if I remember correctly was in Singapore for exhibition last year, but strangely, it took one more year for it to reach Malaysia although it was just a neighbouring country.

    I think the most importance message about this 9 ft 4 tons Buddha statue lies exactly in the name – Peace. May this Buddha statue bring peace to those places where it is exhibited and arouses sense of peace in those admirers, because without peace, nothing will flourish and last long.

  51. Sharon Saw on Jan 17, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    This is really a spectacular buddha image and in jade too. It is good that this sculpture is made from a precious stone to show people how much they value a Buddha image. After all, we so often adorn ourselves in gold, diamonds and everything precious when we have nothing to adorn, while the Buddha image represents the qualities of the Buddha – of the six perfections of generosity, ethics, patience, enthusiastic perseverance, concentration and wisdom. This statue reminds me of the Emerald Buddha in Thailand which is also carved from Jadeite but much smaller scale at 45cm.

    I hope lots of people will visit the Jade Buddha when it arrives, even if it is just as a curiosity factor as they will receive Dharma imprints for the future.

  52. AdelineTan on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    This 9 ft Jade Buddha Shakyamuni looked so stunning! The Australian buddhists Ian an Judy Green must have tremendous merits to complete this great piece of art work and He looked exactly the same liked the one in Mahabodh Stupa in Bodh Gaya in India.Must pay homage to this holy image when He arrives in Kuala Lumpur in march to get His blessings.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the beautiful pictures of this magnificent Buddha Shakyamuni.

  53. Doreen Teoh on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    What a beautiful jade Buddha shakyamuni, it will be such a great blessings to have sight of Buddha. It is just as beautiful as the Buddha Shakyamuni in Mahabodhi Temple. Cannot wait to visit when is in Malaysia. What a great merits the sponsors gain for their contribution to this beautiful Buddha shakyamuni.

  54. Jean Mei on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    I was taught to offer the very best to statues e.g. paint gold on to the Buddha’s face, offer the best jewelry to adorn the statue etc.

    If we are able to offer the very best to the Buddhas, it teaches us to let go of our attachments and at the same time, we also create the causes to achieve the same qualities of a Buddha.

    Those who were part of the process in making this beautiful jade Buddha statue must generate a tremendous amount of merits. They used the best grade of jade to carve Buddha Shakyamuni out, even adding on precious rubies on His head!

    I’m really happy to see that this beautiful Buddha is on a world tour! If anyone happens to go, do send in pictures to jeanmei@tsemladrang.com.

    THANK YOU!

  55. sarah on Jan 17, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Wow, very beautiful Jade Buddha. Truth be told, I never heard of it before although I believe it must be quite famous since there is practically a tour!

    What I’m surprised to find out is that this beautiful Buddha statue, was made in Canada! This shows that the west are starting to adopt a more spiritual life, when previously, large Buddha statues can only be founded in the East.

    Looks like I’ll find myself having a stroll there to make offerings to the Jade Buddha hehe.

  56. K T GOH on Jan 17, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the post of such a beautiful, peaceful and stunning post of Buddha Shakyamuni. Will contact the organiser how I can assist in the exhibition. During my schooldays in Penang, every year without fail, I will assist in the procession walking alongside with Buddha etc. during Wesak Day.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post which tells us more than that. Feeling the pain of those been slaughtered for human consumption. We should gave up eating meat , have compassion for them who cannot speak for themselves. Looking at those pictures feeling uneasy, the way those chickens , pigs and so forth were killed. We have a lot to answer for those sufferings and killing . We have a choice not to kill and to be vegetarian. Choosing to be a vegetarian is the best as there are many benefits. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Vegetarians also tend to have lower overall cancer rates and lower risk of chronic disease. Hence for health reasons we should go on vegetarian.

    In northern China, where there is a long history of consuming dog meat to ward off the coldness in the winter. They celebrates the summer solstice by throwing a festival that involves the slaughter and consumption of dog meats. Many people love the sophisticated tastes of their dog-meat cuisine. This tradition is slowly fading out as more and more people are aware of the cruelty and not a healthy life consuming it.
    Reading this blog and looking at the pictures , one could see the poor lady activist kneels down , begging the vendor to buy those dogs from being eaten ahead of the annual dog meat. What she did was incredible ,sold her family’s two houses to fund the rescue of thousands of dogs. This amazing woman has spent large amount of money, saving dogs from the Chinese dog meat festival. She has dedicated her life to actually doing something worth doing about it. Attitudes towards dog consumption in China are changing, but some of these traditions have deep roots.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Bigfoot believe may exist somewhere in the wild, but are not recognized by science. Russian president discovers ‘proof’ that fabled creature exists while on short vacation in Kemerovo region. The sighting is understood to have been confirmed by President Putin’s security detachment after they inspected the footprints. Environmental rangers and hunters in remote mountain terrain confirmed it. The Kremlin leader had witnessed’ three Yetis while on a recent helicopter trip to a remote location famous for claimed sightings. Nobody in the world has found the yeti, and it would be good and beneficial to most people. Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams in the wild. As long as there are wild places in America, Bigfoot remains a possibility that, it exist.

    Stephen William Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Well he was best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking did mentioned in an interview that, it is natural to believe God created the universe. He think science has a more compelling explanation than a divine creator. Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science. Well said by him.
    Everything we have in life is all came as a result of research either from ourselves or others. That’s true.

    The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event in which nine Soviet hikers died mysteriously in the northern Ural Mountains in 1959. A group of ski hikers led by Igor Dyatlov just perished in this remote peak. Some of them succumbed to hypothermia, but others were found with grisly injuries. No one yet comes to the conclusion what had exactly happened to them and solved one of history’s greatest adventure .The Dyatlov Pass Incident, came to be known and have inspired countless conspiracy theories, such as Yetis, and even extra-terrestrial contact with the unknown. These men and women were never heard from again. A criminal investigation at the time blamed their deaths on an unknown natural force. Sound interesting. There’s some unknown creatures or aliens maybe that cause their death i do believe., as we are not alone.

    Samaya is a set of Buddhist vows and commitments that are given when one receives empowerment in the Vajrayana Buddhist order. Guru devotion plays an important part in our spiritual practice in Tibetan Buddhism. As explained by Tsem Rinpoche our Guru we must have a good relations and good samaya with the guru. We can never be overstressed on the spiritual path or else our mind will degenerate. Breaking the samaya vows is worse than breaking any other laws. Breaking a samaya results in a heavy bad karma, especially if one disregards or dislikes, the Guru who have gave us the teachings. The Dorje Shugden controversy had cause disharmony and sufferings to many practitioners. For some of them been drifted away causing them to break their samaya then. Interesting read.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura, a monumental outdoor bronze statue is one of the most famous icons of Japan. It sits in the grounds of Kotokuin, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. An equal opportunities Buddha, guiding all to the Pure Land, built in the mid 13th century and is the second tallest bronze Buddha in Japan. Looks stunning this statue with historical stories behind it. Love to visit and see for myself this magnificent statue.

    Yes there are many mysterious creatures everywhere this very planet. Its only that we don’t encounter before. Many mysterious creatures such as Owl man , ‘lizard man, Flatwoods monster may exist after-all. Many of them exist in the wild but scientist do not believed it exist by mainstream science. Reading this blog is an eye-opening for me. Just fantastic knowing such creatures do exist. Some of them looks scary to me like the Canvey island monster which had horse-shoe shaped feet with five toes and it had no ‘arms’. Even though its just a carcass seen on the shores of Canvey Island in England. Ferociously looking . Bunyip another creatures found in swamps which has a dog-like face, dark fur, horse-like tail and walrus-like horns. Interesting reading to know that there are some of the mysterious creatures .

From one picture where thousands of tents were set up outside the monastery hosting the ceremony for the thousands of attendees. Thousands of fortunate practitioners were fortunate to receive initiation of Dorje Shugden from high lamas of the Gelug lineage . We are fortunate to read and watch those updates from Tibet and else where.

    The interest in vegan and vegetarian products is on the rise, especially after consumers become aware of the cruelty involved in producing animal-based foods. Undercover footage released shows slaughterhouse brutal treatment of animals such as pigs , sheep and so forth being kicked, beaten, and thrown into cages before they are slaughtered. The animals should be immediately slaughtered so as to spare them the pain, stress, and anxiety. Secret footage shot inside a slaughterhouse has reignited a row over animal cruelty. Its sad watching this video. As results leading animal protection organisation Animal Aid requested more CCTV cameras to be place in all abattoirs. The public do not want to see animals treated in such a cruel way . To go vegetarian will be the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing high-lighted the sufferings of animals in slaughter house.

    Generally, Buddhist teaching views life and death as a continuum, believing that consciousness continues after death and may be reborn. We’re all going to face death, so we shouldn’t ignore it. Being realistic about our mortality enables us to live a full, meaningful life. Buddhist teachings emphasize the idea that although one’s destiny is always influenced by past karma. That is, our actions in this and previous lives shape the outcome for the next life. Reading this article had me understand further . To learn ,practice Dharma is the best choice I have made. We have our Guru to thank for sharing with us the journey from birth to death. This article gave us a better understanding of what happens to us after we pass away according to Buddhism.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Palden Tenpai Nyima a native of Tibet, he was the 7th Panchen Lama of Tibet. The Panchen Lama is the second highest ranking lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan . Palden Tenpai Nyima did compiled and edited voluminous collection of tantric deity sadhanas or spiritual practices known as Rinjung Lhantab. Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas originally came from the great Tibetan scholar Jetsun Taranatha. In turn, Taranatha’s collection was based on the ancient Sadhanamala collection of works by various Indian authors. It was believed to have been compiled between the 5th and 11th centuries which can be traced back to its Indian roots. Its more suitable for higher practitioners . Jetsun Taranatha was one of the important masters of the Jonang lineage, was of crucial importance for the Shangpa Kagyu tradition who had contributed tremendously in Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David.

    Monk robes offering is the highest offering and the most meritorious of skillful deeds. The act of offering robes to the Sangha, one will be free from the suffering of hungry ghost realm and taking rebirth in the human form with complete perfect physical, attractive, conceivably pleasant and beautiful shape. Merits of offering robes to Sangha is extremely glorious. The Sangha has preserved, propagated and taught the teachings of the Buddha for centuries. As a result, millions have benefitted from their diligent effort and compassion, hence with understanding and gratitude, it is meritorious for us to offer robes to monks.
    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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    5 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

Last Monday, 28th Nov 2022 was 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day. Kechara Penang members gathered together to clean the altar, polish offerings bowls and etc. Sweeping, cleaning and arranging offerings are very important in Buddhism. In fact, it's the first of the preparatory practices as taught in Lamrim. While we clean, it's good to chant mantras or listening to it, such as reciting 'Dulpung Drima Pung' when we are sweeping.
