Aung San Suu Kyi is a light in our darkness

Dear friends,

 

I am not posting this for political reasons. I am not involved with politics or know much about the political scene. I posted this because this lady sacrificed decades of her life for a cause she believed in. She didn’t just say she believes in it, but she used her precious life for it. The sacrifices she made if you have read her story is heart-wrenching. But the need of the many outweighed the needs of the one is how she felt about why she did it and continues to. Her countrymen and women were more important than her own needs. Her inner strength is our light.

Her human spirit, care and compassion is superhuman. When she needs solace or word to comfort her, she seeks her Buddhist teacher advice and puts it into practice. Amazing! She said she draws her strength from Buddhism. I found that beautiful because her spirituality gave her the strength to overcome her personal attachments and to work for the desires of others. That is what religion teaches us and she really practices this all the way. It is truly wonderful to live at the same time on this planet to know she alive with us. What an honour to just be on the same planet with her.

I offer her my humble prayers for a very long life, very healthy life and her wishes be blessed. She has given me more strength, inspiration and a perfect example of how we should live our lives. As I type this, I feel honoured to type a few words not worthy of her greatness here. She is the mother we should all have. The sister, the friend, the guide, the mentor, the example we should look up to.

With fold hands I thank Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi so much for all that she has given us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post as well as those beautiful pictures for us.

    Aung San Suu Kyi is definitely amazing as not many have natural proclivity toward countering a violent situation with non-violent actions. Her quiet determination to take on hardship for what she believes in and which is geared towards benefiting others is truly inspiring. All these she openly credits to her faith in Buddhism. She has repeatedly said in interviews that she has drawn strength from what Buddhism, particularly focusing on putting in action the principle of loving-kindness. I still recall it was her response in an Asian Week interview which first left a huge impression.

    Extract of interview:

    Interviewer: You did say at one time that you had no ill feelings toward the military for putting you under house arrest, ‘I do have a soft spot for the Myanmar army, it’s because of my father,’ you said.

    Aung San Suu Kyi: Yes, I don’t hold it against them because they put me under house arrest.”

    Interviewer: No bitterness?

    Aung San Suu Kyi: No. Why? It’s part of the job. You know.

    Despite all that was done to her, she took it with stride and appears to bear no hostility for those who “wronged” her. Having read the interview before my exposure to real Dharma, such attitude was quite a rarity in my social circle then.

    Leaving aside the political aspect, reading about Aung San Suu Kyi here reminded me again of the beauty, benefits and effectiveness of Dharma when sincerely and steadfastly applied to our lives.

    Such a beautiful and empowering lady. I read all of Aung San Suu Kyi’s post on the blog and follow the news closely about her. She certainly is one of the most inspiring people in today’s date.

    Hope to read more interesting news about her on the blog.

  6. Wah Ying on Sep 11, 2012 at 1:25 am

    I still remember the hero of Myanmar Aung San who is Aung San Suu Kyi’s. And this lady is doing not less but more than her father.

    By seeing her face and body, I can’t imagine where she get the strength and spirit to fight a dictator government who deny her right and Myanmar people’s right. After knowing her devotion to her Guru and belief in her religion, one will know where she draws her strength from.

    Seeing her picture in black and white when she was younger , i suppose it was taken during 90s, and her face with wrinkles and grey hair near her ears, one knows how much times and effort she has put in to realize her dream for her countrymen and women.

    I think of a poem “衣帶漸寬終不悔,為伊消得人憔悴”, which says no regret to suffer for someone the poet loves. But what Aung San Suu Kyi suffers for is more than a person, for the benefits of more.

    And, I might read about or taught the similar teachings of Buddhism she gets, however how she manage to apply it to the situation she’s facing, which makes her a stronger person, a person who cares more than herself or her family that makes her stronger.

    Thank you Aung San Suu Kyi for showcasing/inspiring the world on it’s always worthwhile to fight for a dream, especially a dream of all, and how powerful when we practice and apply the precious teachings we are receiving from our Guru.

    Inspired! All the pictures where she is in it is simply magic. I heard of her talk over a talk show and the strength, gentleness, intellect that came through her talk is simply simply amazing stuff.

    Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi是很值得崇敬的一位女士,昂山素季在缅甸被软禁的时间已经持续超过20年。她本可以抛弃理想,选择自由,但她选择了坚持理想;她本可以放弃斗争,选择回归美好幸福的家庭,世外桃源般的生活,但她选择放弃生活。血管里奔流的血液使得她在偶然遭遇缅甸政治之后即就此坚守22年,没有退缩,更没有离开。其坚毅的精神和纯净的形象,更使她成为缅甸人民面对未来的希望所在。她为深爱的祖国所牺牲的,都不是我们能想象的..我很喜欢她朴素的装扮,一朵花可以把她的气质散发出来。

    很记得有一遍新闻文章报道,有一年她已经差不多要完成软禁的期限了, 但一位旅客误闯她被软禁的地方,而官方却判她和外界私通,策划阴谋,所以判她继续软禁,但她并没有迁怒于那位旅客,反而要求她的跟随者息怒,并好好对待他。她如此的宽大胸襟真的让我折服,这就是慈悲心吧。有人形容她是完美的囚犯,非常认同!!

    在亚洲地区,女性常被挂上弱者的代号,但她仿佛就是‘女生不再是弱者’,是正义的代言人,她的勇敢所带来的改革,已经影响至全世界。她的佛教信仰,并完美的实践。在佛教的薰陶下,她能保持心理平静,甚至是最严重的挫折也不能干扰她。她说:“要过一种充实的生活,就必须有勇气去承担他人所需要的责任。”这不正是我们必须学习的精神吗?只要实在的了解,实践佛法,以我们能力所及,帮助他人,生活的充实,快乐就会随之而来~~

    I love Aung San Suu Kyi a lot, just like Nelson Mandela, Mathama Ghandi and the rest of true leaders, she sacrificed decades of her life for a cause she believed in which is the freedom of her people real independence of Myanmar. She had suffered so much for her people and despite being in struggle (and she was under house arrest) for so many years, she fought on for the rights of her people.

  10. Choi Sheem on Jul 2, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyi is such a strong and determined lady despite appearing a little frail physically. She has sacrificed her youth and spending time with her family to fight for democracy of her beloved country. Because of this, she have earn the respect of many people. The photographs says it all-from world leaders to the little boy on the street. Thank you for showing us a perfect example of a modern lay person who is practicing Buddhism.

    Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi 是位偉大的民主斗士。用盡自己的青春歲月,帶領國家與人民

  12. Paul Yap on Jun 29, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    She is a good example of world peace, she fought for her country’s freedom and humanity, and most importantly, she fought for what she believes in, and has the strength to say NO. Perhaps, this is what we need for everyone, speak up and not to be afraid, anymore!

    Im so happy for Aung San Suu Kyi, she has been well received by many world leaders, and recognized internationally. I hope many people will joint in she dreams and make it a reality!

  13. sweekeong on Jun 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    She is a very admirable woman for standing up to her ideals in the face of all opposition and physical freedom. She has a nerve of steel. She’s 67 this year, 15 years spent in detection. My thought is the wish for her to have a long life so that many will be inspired by her to act.

  14. Uncle Eddie on Jun 28, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Aung San Suu Kyi, a Burmese top opposition leader, and chairperson of the National League for Democracy, chose non-violence and Pro-democracy, as expedient political tactics, and, more specifically by Buddhist concepts. Her spirituality gave her the strength to overcome personal attachments to work for the desires of others, i.e. her countrymen and women – more important than her own needs. She is therefore able to leave her family life in Britain and thrust herself into Yanmar to fight against dictatorship. She sacrifice 24 years of her life for this cause, when she was confined to her own Yangon home. For this she drew her strength from her Budhism practice. In one of her famous speeches, “Freedom from Fear”, she has been quoted to have said, “It is not that power corrupts, But fear. Fear of losing Power corrupts those who wield it and fear of scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it. Fear spurs many world leaders to lose sight of their purpose.” She is truly the strength, the inspiration and the perfect greatness of a shinning light to all.

  15. Victor Phang on Jun 28, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Beautiful lady! She has incredible energy and strength. I’m grateful to read her story which always inspire me to move forward without fear and do whatever I believe in. As a Buddhist, I feel very proud of her as she learn and practice Dharma thoroughly. Her action is showing the whole world how beautiful Buddhism is for both personal and political level. She proved to the world that Buddhism is not just a religion but a practice for every aspect in life. May the Three Jewels protect and bless her every single second so she can complete her mission for the welfare of the people of Myanmar and the world.
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche.
    Take good care

  16. EricLee KHJB on Jun 28, 2012 at 8:27 am

    有很多的人,都把佛陀的教导,当成是宗教来看待。其实,我个人认为,佛陀的教育,他是一门生活上的智慧,告诉我们这自然界的定律,只要我们遵照佛陀的教导来过生活,一切的问题,都有解决的办法。我们也可以从许多的成功认识的身上,看到这样的例子,比如说像:翁山苏枝,她採取忍辱的方式来对待所有的不公平,这一再的证明了,有佛法就有办法。各位同修们,让我们好好的在生活上实践佛法吧。

  17. Grace (KSJC) on Jun 28, 2012 at 12:57 am

    I admired and respect Aung San Suu Kyi for her courage, determination and spirit toward her country and people.How many of us can let go our personal attachment and to beneficial other?shame, we still stick to our attachment and do only little for other .She is the role for us to learn.

  18. Julia Tan on Jun 28, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Aung San Suu Kyi. 67 still go strong and glory. She is the hope and joy for her people. She gave Myanmar light and future. All these great people suffered a lot for others but never ever complain and never ever give up. They have “no turning back” that kind of attitude and fearless thought and believe in what they are fighting for. Which I have non of even one of the above qualities. Reading her story made me feel so so so super small. When I looked at her face in one of the pictures above. I can feel her exhaustion, aging and pain not for herself but for her people.

    Aung San Suu Kyi, I wish you long life so that you could see your people’s lives get better when freedom comes.

  19. Helena Chin on Jun 27, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Amazing woman!!! She is an inspiration and a mentor for all the people. After watching The Lady,I really salute Aung San Suu Kyi. She is a true hero of Myanmar. She sacrifice her family, her life in a house for 15 years to serve her people needs, it is because she loves her people and she is compassionate and faithful to her people. She is standing out for her people and fight for their rights and democracy, to free from suffering and for a better future in Myanmar. She goes all the way and stands what she believes. It is beautiful to know that she draws her strength from Buddhism, a true powerful woman in a spiritual manners. I cried when i watch the movie, I can feel how sad she is can’t even visit her husband for the last time before he died. She is totally an amazing woman.
    My salute to her…May she always blessed by the 3 jewels.

  20. Datuk May on Jun 27, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyi is a true hero and her endeavour to help Myanmar to democracy is remarkable.

    Life was good for her until she took on the passion of her life to free Mayanmar from the grips of autocracy of an elite group of military men. She was educated and lived in England and gave that up in order to serve a great cause and bring freedom to people.

    In Myanmar she suffered alot both personally and physically, being confined to house arrest and unable to see her husband before he died and look after her children during their most crucial years.
    Sacrifices most women will not take on. My Kudos to Aung San Suu Kyi as a woman of great substance.

    Women like her makes me think of Buddha Vajrayogini.

  21. Denise Kuek on Jun 27, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    She has been my idol since long time ago..don’t know y, whenever i saw her pic or read her story, i feel like want to cry..she give me a feeling of closeness(just like my nanny)..she is very kind and peaceful, i love her so much.

  22. June Tang (KH-JB) on Jun 27, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Thank you RINPOCHE for sharing the story and pictures of this WONDERWOMAN—Aung San Suu Kyi
    Everyone got their choices,she choose to benefit her people ,her country.Her realy inspired me..her determianation,never give up attitude,fearlessly…all sacrified for others.May her be blessed with good health,long life and continue to helping her people and her country!!

  23. winnie on Jun 27, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    我很感动,这位AungSan Suu Kyi 所做的一切都是为了爱国爱民,从他表面看来只是一位普通女士但思想却不简单。为了民族和人权,他努力奋斗,服务人民。她的委屈和勇敢也引起我遇事要冷静面对。最后他也在大选中赢得历史性的地位和尊重。他的爱心直得我们学习。我非常欣赏他所做的一切都在服务他人。

  24. Louise Lee on Jun 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Women also can do big thing. Please dont physco yourself !

    in Kechara , we got Datuk May Phng. she & her family help us to have our Gompa. And now she take care of KFR project!

    Kechara Soup Kitchen, Dato Ruby Khong, she follow Rinpoche vision, to help the poor !

    Dear all lady, we all got talent ! Just dont hide yourself !!

  25. Pastor Ngeow on Jun 27, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    This great lady certainly deserves our respect and an example for the rest of the world to follow as the epitome of human spirit – the capacity to take on sacrifice and suffering for her country and her people.Most of us cannot even do that for our loved ones! She more than qualified to stand amongst the likes of Mother theresa, Nelson Mandela , Gandhi etc who shares similar qualities of selflessness and never giving up what they believe in for the betterment of others.

  26. Judy Lam on Jun 27, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyi has always won my admiration for who she is and what she stands for. What struck me is the picture of her son, Kim Aris. I watched the entire speech by his mum and the camera was constantly focusing on his face. To have people clapping over and over again at the things she said. Then came the standing ovation at the end of the speech. I just wonder what was on his mind while his mum was making that historical speech at City Hall Oslo heard by people all over the world? Wouldn’t he felt sad reminiscing those times when his mum was not at his side during his growing years? Would he have wished that his dad would have lived to see this moment? Wouldn’t he felt so proud of his mum who has selflessly dedicated herself for the betterment of her country? Would he have felt that his mum’s sacrifice would have been worth it? Whatever it may be, I applaud him for being there for his mum.

  27. Cindy on Jun 27, 2012 at 11:17 am

    It’s because she is a strong & brave lady, she’ll never give up even though what people said or against her. she just want protect her country. So, I hope she’ll continue to lead her country.

  28. Yvonne Yap on Jun 27, 2012 at 10:43 am

    I think all is because of love,she become brave, so she can do a lot of things for the country and people。
    People will respect what she done.
    For us if we can learn from her about 30%, is very good already.

  29. nicholas on Jun 27, 2012 at 10:10 am

    All the pictures show Aung San Suu Kyi’s determination, persistent, integrity, honesty and love for others. She had put aside her personal matters (i.e family) for the people of Burma.

    She has never given up even though form the time she has been house arrest. It’s not easy but she makes the choice to serve others. No personal agenda but just for the benefit of the people. This remarkable lady received so many Prizes not only for her contribution but her choices to make changes with compassion & selflessness.

    The success is us to make the different and take do it all the way.

  30. Li Kim on Jun 27, 2012 at 3:42 am

    She is a tower of strength beyond words and for this further explanation is not required… I went to google her and found some great quotes from her which I would like to share….

    1) “The four basic ingredients for success are: you must have the will to want something; you must have the right kind of attitude; you must have perseverance, and then you must have wisdom. Then you combine these four and then you get to where you want to get to.”

    2) “I always think challenges are interesting and help you to become a better person.”

    3) “I don’t believe in people just hoping. We work for what we want. I always say that one has no right to hope without endeavour, so we work to try and bring about the situation that is necessary for the country, and we are confident that we will get to the negotiation table at one time or another.”

    These are the ones which stuck out for me. Read more at :

  31. Jasline Tay (MBF) on Jun 27, 2012 at 12:47 am

    It simply touches your heart…
    Beautiful lady who go all out for her country and people, may she be blessed with long life and may she be able to see the freedom and democracy be returned o the people of Myanmar

  32. Grace Leong on Jun 26, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    From one of the other links it’s mentioned that AuNg San Suu Kyi was born on 19june 1945 . That makes her 67 !! She has been in house arrest since her early 50s . Wow ! A big part of her prime years . All sacrificed for the people of her country . She placed her people as important if not more important than her husband and children . She definitely has an altruistic mind – putting her beliefs in helping others into actions ! The toll from all the challenges in the past are clearly shown on her face , but yet she continues on with her struggles to help her countrymen . Very determined ! Truly inspirational ! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the stories and pics of this wonderful lady .

  33. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 26, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Miss Aung San Suu Kyi is so inspire, she use her youthful more than 20 years from a miss become an old lady to benefit peoples there are no any blood relationship with her.

    Her success prove to us that if we may keep going with our goal and mostly to benefit others sure our dream and goal will be achieve one day.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the photos above i feel very warm and respect to her.

  34. Lim Han Nee on Jun 26, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyii has, in my eyes, been always an icon for peace and compassion in a troubled world, where feelings of love have become numbed by strife and suffering. But i didn’t see her, before, in the light of Rinpoche’s words about her:

    ” ‘The need of the many outweighed the need of one’ is how she felt about why she did it and continues to do”.

    I didn’t see this ‘bodhicitta’ dimension of her love for her country’s people, until Rinpoche spelt it out in this post.

    This great lady will continue to work for her country’s peace and happiness as long as there is breath in her. May she live long to see true peace return to Myanmar.

  35. Su Ming on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyi, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, HH Dalai Lama, Rev Cheng Yen & Mother Teresa stories are all very inspirational. Even after death, their names are still mentioned and their great deeds are known throughout till today.

    What stands out amongst them is their attitude towards life.. never give up and persistency. It does not matter what causes they fought for but their attitude speared them towards success and they are heard all over the world. If you checked carefully, some of them have very ordinary background but they CHOSE to be different and fought hard for what they believed in.

    Therefore, anyone of us can be Aung San Suu Kyi if we want to.

  36. tenzin llhamo on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    I salute her! She never gave up for what is the right thing to do and she is still doing it despite many years of house arrest! She didn’t do it for herself but her country and her people. Truly inspiring! Like Lew and Su An, I like the picture of her putting her hand on the Muslim man and you can tell from her expression, she looks so gentle and kind. She shows us what she practice and its just by looking at her picture, its says a thousand words. May she live long with good health and continue to benefit many.

  37. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    While looking through these pictures, I see recognition from the international arena, from citizens to the royal families and I also see the amazing perseverance, strengths and beliefs that Ms Aung San Suu Kyi has within herself.

    Not many people are willing to give up precious lives for the fulfilment of higher goals, for the benefits of many others. Like Rinpoche has put it nicely, she does not just say the dreams with her mouth, she says it with her actions.

    She went through much pains in her journey to fight against military force within her own country, from her sacrifices that she made in her family life till her own precious life. She is such a simple lady but yet with a stout heart.

    She is truly an inspiration for many, for her saying her dreams out with her actions, her letting go of self-interests and strong perseverance.

  38. […] Aung San Suu Kyi is a light in our darkness […]

  39. Han on Jun 26, 2012 at 10:12 am

    I love all the pictures posted here, thank you !
    Aung San Suu Kyi surely is my inspiration , she is a lady with strong determination, never give up attitude and free from fear etc she embodies Buddhist principle and believes violent does not solve anything, her journey still long way to go, but with her strong determination without fear, she won the race and she gain respect worldwide, may she lives long and may she continue to be blessed!

  40. Yoke Fui on Jun 26, 2012 at 6:55 am

    Aung San Suu Kyi puts aside her family and gives her life to the cause she believes – to bring happiness and democracy to her people.

    She did not get to say her last good bye to her late husband and missed the better part of her children’s growing up. She willingly take on all the sufferings and her example won the hearts of her nation as well as world wide.

    She is a gem of the human kind.

  41. Don Buchwalter on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:23 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these photos.

    I remember being in High School in 1989, and hearing about her for the first time. Even then, I was struck by her determination, and quiet dignity.

    She is one of those relatively rare people that can truly be classified as a world treasure.

  42. Wei Theng on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:21 am

    She looks like a normal lady, but she is strong, compassion and full of inner strength. For a cause that she believes in, the difficulties that she has to endure is beyond words can describe. However, she just go all the way, for the benefit of her people. Very inspiring and a Buddhisatva in action!

  43. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:41 am

    How many years had Aung San Suu Kyi fight for her country? How many things she had gave up in between this years, countless I think. The person she love so much, she left because of her country. Now the result had came out.She never regret what she had done past ten years. For sacrificed herself and brought her tremendous merit.

  44. Irene Lim on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Aung San Suu Kyi stands on the same pedestal as all the world great leaders like the Dalai Lama, Mahatma Ghandi and Nelson Mandela. She puts aside her personal comfort and sacrifice for the greater goal of her nation. Such a beautiful story and inspiration to many.

    I love all the photos posted here, and I specially like the photo where she puts her hand on the muslim leader, giving them the confidence of her open policy, and respect towards other religions.

    She has indeed inspired many. I pray that she can live long to show the world how beautiful can a person be.

    • su an on Jun 26, 2012 at 9:38 am

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

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

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

    This story is very inspiring.Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants.
    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

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

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

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

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    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 .

The Unknown

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

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

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
