Chinese Passports Become More Powerful

Apr 6, 2017 | Views: 4,453

Dear Friends,

I was sent the following post and thought that it was amazing how far China has come over the years. Not so long ago China was treated with suspicion as some countries in the west may have viewed her with caution due to a different way of governing the vast nation.

Now we see China’s passport becoming more powerful similar to the United States and the United Kingdom. What is impressive is how much China’s world community profile has soared from where they were not so long ago, whilst a lot of countries that had a head start have instead backslided or stagnated. China is a force to contend with reflected in the growing prestige of how their passports are treated by easier visa granting laws of various nations Chinese nationals visit.

This new development clearly says that China is fast becoming more respected, and more importantly, trusted. It also means with there is a lot of international trade with the Chinese government and Chinese business people and companies. What seems to be the trend is that China’s global entrepreneurial policy seems to be aiming at mutual benefit and that has opened a lot of doors for the Asian giant. Recent developments seems to indicate that China is a safe country and one which nations of the world want to welcome and be friends with.

A more powerful Chinese passport also indicates a wealthier and more affluent Chinese domestic economy. It is difficult for citizens of some countries to gain easy access to other countries before there is a fear that the travellers will overstay and become illegal immigrant for not wanting to return to a less than desirable state of the nation. This is not so for China as the people see a benefit of remaining as Chinese citizens. This is another feather to the Chinese government’s cap as it was not so long ago when the Chinese economy and society was in ruins.

I am glad to see this because it is much easier for a prosperous and trusted country to import their rich cultural traditions sharing it with other nations. There are so many well-accomplished masters in China. As Chinese people find it easier to travel and access the people of the world, the rich Chinese culture and their philosophy will spread to other nations.

Chinese Passports Become More Powerful

Editor’s note: In recent years, Chinese nationals have found it more convenient to travel overseas as more and more countries are opening their doors wider to China with visa-free policies, expended visa validity and simplified application procedures. Here are some of the most recent examples.

Addendum: European Parliament Votes To End Visa-free Travel For Americans

Jon Sharman I Friday 3 March 2017 13:15 GMT

The passing of the non-binding resolution comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries.
 

The European Commission must now act to suspend the visa waiver for Americans

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/EuropeanParliamentVotes.mp4

The European Parliament has voted to end visa-free travel for Americans within the EU.

It comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries – Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania – as part of a reciprocity agreement. US citizens can normally travel to all countries in the bloc without a visa.

The vote urges the revocation of the scheme within two months, meaning Americans will have to apply for extra documents for 12 months after the European Commission implements a “delegated act” to bring the change into effect.

The Commission discovered three years ago that the US was not meeting its obligations under the reciprocity agreement but has not yet taken any legal action. The latest vote, prepared by the civil liberties committee and approved by a plenary session of parliament, gives the Commission two months to act before MEPs can consider action in the European Court of Justice.

Australia, Brunei, Japan and Canada were also failing in their obligations, but all four have lifted, or are soon to lift, any visa restrictions on travel for EU citizens.

The Commission is legally obliged to act to suspend the visa waiver for Americans, but the European Parliament or the Council of the European Union have the chance to object to the “delegated act” it uses to do so.

In December, MEPs pressed for the move in order to “encourage” Washington to play its part, according to a statement by the parliament.

But Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos warned of “consequences”, including potential “retaliation” and a drop in visitor numbers precipitating substantial losses for the continent’s tourism industry.

Just days ago the Council said it would liberalise the visa regime for citizens of Georgia travelling into the EU.

Georgians can now, subject to final approval of the regulation, stay in any EU country for 90 days in any period of 180 days without needing a visa.

Carmelo Abela, Malta’s minister for national security, said: “This agreement will bring the people of Georgia and the EU closer together and will strengthen tourism and business ties. It follows the completion of the necessary reforms by Georgia, addressing document security, border management, migration and asylum.”

Last month it was reported that the EU was considering the adoption of a US-style electronic travel permit scheme – a move that could create a new administrative hurdle for British tourists after Brexit.

Immigration minister Robert Goodwill told Parliament the EU was discussing the possibility of introducing a version of America’s Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA).

Currently foreign travellers must pay a fee of $14 (£11) when they complete ESTA, an automated online system that determines their eligibility to travel to the US.

“British people are now used to the US ESTA scheme and, therefore, we view with interest how the European scheme might develop and what similarities, and differences, there may be to the US scheme,” Mr Goodwill said.

“This type of scheme is generally there to help enhance security. To get to know as much as possible about the people who are intending to travel.

“It isn’t just flights, it could be people using ferries, or other border crossings into the European Union.”

Alan Brown, an SNP member of the European Scrutiny Committee, pointed out that Leave advocates in the referendum campaign had said there would be no need for visa-like travel schemes after Brexit.

    Being the biggest population country, China indeed becoming more powerful in many aspect such as Economy, Military, Business and etc.
    Despite, China remains a textbook communist country, the ruling party is open to any of the religion.

  2. yin ping on Dec 25, 2017 at 1:47 am

    China is the world’s largest manufacturing economy and exporter of goods and also one of the world’s fastest-growing consumer market and importer of goods. China plays an important role in international trade. These increasing economy is a major factor that Chinese passport become more powerful.

    More countries would want their citizens as tourists. The China citizens are believed to be from a stable economy and not be a risk of overstaying. This is great news for China as other countries would like make friends with China too. This will bring a closer tie among countries whether in economic, politics or cultural.

  3. Irene Lim on Nov 16, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    Chinese passports becoming more powerful only reflects on a wealthier and more affluent Chinese economy. In the recent years China has become more respected and has ventured into international borders to invest and trade. She has also assumed more assertive role globally and especially in South East Asia making her military presence and power felt. China has become a world superpower fast overtaking the United States of America.

  4. Uncle Eddie on May 28, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    China has sent out stabilizing messages to the world on its economic investments and foreign polices since it convened its two most important annual political meetings early march. The on-going “two sessions” inevitably attract global attention, because China polices for the year are said to be announced by top Leaders in the great Hall of the People to the west of Tiananmen Square in Beijing. Amazingly, how far China has come over the years. China was not too long ago treated with suspicious and cautioned, but today China’s passport became more powerful, same as that of the level with U.S.A and the United Kingdom. In the growing prestige of their passport treatment, China is a force to contend with. Today’s age seems to be an “era of turbulence” in which weak nations are crumbling before powerful big monster nation of great strength and modernism. The rate of change for many such nations have reached the pitch of insanity, especially in the armament race of building up powerful military hardware which can endanger all forms of life existence on earth. If mankind do not know how to live peacefully with one another, and use the good knowledge of Science and Technology with responsibility, it is doubtful if human civilization can long exist anymore! Looks like every powerful big country of today are all trying to outdo each other in promoting more powerful exorbitant nuclear warheads for their destructive purpose and usage. Such development programme on powerful nuclear weapons is wrong at this point of time of peace to create. Hopefully, China being one of the hierarchy members of United Nation Committee, with other similar fellow members maybe able to do something to dislodge or persuade a discontinuation of further production and testing of such deadly powerful nuclear warhead beneath the feet of all living beings (though undersea) on this precious Earth!

    Is undeniable China has growth so powerful now leading the growth of the world economy. China has prove to the world their abality to the world and gain their respect with honour with their nation. Now is good for people can respect each other without bias and not flighting over the name and position and try to put each other down.

    Is good to know China passport has becoming more popular these day and get free visa escces from many countries. This is another example people around the world are welcoming Chinese visiting their country. I hope people with get know more about China with their culture and history. Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article.

  8. Pastor Antoientte on Apr 26, 2017 at 8:13 am

    It is good news that Chinese people have easier access to many other countries. Many Chinese people have immigrated to other countries, work there and make a living there. Chinese products are well know all over the world as “Made in China”. The development of China within the world shows that nothing is permanent and we can see changes either for the better. So we should be aware that everything is changing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these good news.

  9. Pastor Albert on Apr 26, 2017 at 2:15 am

    I have no doubt about being one of the most powerful country in the world, since many years ago, China has been very determined on penetrating into every countries in economical, they go from grass root consumable items to the expensive ones, look at our daily life, how many things we used are made of China and their pricing is really undeniably cheap, imported things are even cheaper than local made, how is that possible. That started since many many years ago. Look at today, China is using their fortune to enter so many developed countries, in view with the great opportunity to bring in huge investment, many countries now are making closer connection with China.

    It is a good news for China to grow strong and becoming the most influential country, because Dorje Shugden is widely practiced in China, so with their popularity growing, they can also bring Dorje Shugden to the world stage.

  10. Mingwen on Apr 26, 2017 at 2:13 am

    May everyone on earth could travel freely around the world, live in peace and harmony regardless of gender, age, race, religion and status.

    I wish everyone of us will never take things for granted and respect every living beings on Earth because no one of us has the full control over another and no one could ever survive by oneself.

  11. June Kang on Apr 26, 2017 at 12:19 am

    Passport is an important “clearance” to go round the world and also is a important foreign identity documents. Do not underestimate this little passport, it also reflect the strength of a country! That is, countries with mostly positive diplomatic relations tend to have more powerful passports, because the leaders of those countries have jointly signed on to bilateral visa agreements.

    Currently, China’s GDP economic strength is the world’s second and with this indirectly increase the power of international Diplomatic relations. Also with the rapid growth of China’s outbound travel, has reflected the economic strength of China. Therefore more and more countries open to China free visa entry. As globalization takes hold, powerful passports are more critical now than ever.

  12. Tek Lee on Apr 26, 2017 at 12:11 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It’s really glad to see China’s growth brings benefit to their own people. When economy of a county gets better, the people of that country will automatically earn more money, hence the spending power will increase. Honestly, in these few years, Chinese tourist who visit other countries, really spend a lot. For example, LV in Paris, which is well known for queuing and take turn to get into the shop. And it is well known also, most of the people who queue outside the shop, are tourist from China. From that, can see tourist from China are willing to spend money in their vacation. Hope that more countries will befriend China and open their door to welcome China businessmen and tourist. The economy of one of the biggest countries in the world grows, will affect the rest of the country. It’s like chain reaction. Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

    Glad to know that China is growing up, i don’t have much to talk about China, i do respect to all the world leaders who running their country well.

    What i like about Chine? I like China because of their government allow their people practice Dorje Shugden, give their people for Religion Freedoms ( same to Malaysia government too ).

    Here’s the proof of China government giving their people and supports Dorje Shugden : https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/china-officially-supports-dorje-shugden.html

  14. Datuk May on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:21 pm

    Being the worlds second largest economy, it is only natural that countries courting Foreign Direct Investments for their countries will welcome the citizens of a financial powerhouse like China.

    Previous to the rising of China, countries with huge technical knowledge and innovative technologies were also welcomed by countries.

    China being a huge country of still under a “communistic” regime being welcomed in so many countries shows that China is about “business” only and will not interfere with local national governance. This is an important and acceptable factor of China’s conduct in becoming a world power.

  15. Justin Cheah on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    When China’s economy boom happened a decade ago, people were still doubting about China whether will they realise their potential to become the awaken dragon in Asia. It is undoubtedly they realised that and now it’s citizens were all over the world making a great name for China to the rest of the world. China has emerged itself as one of the economic powerhouse of the world and this is pretty prevalent in whatever industries that China enters.
    With this glaring results, undoubtedly the status of Chinese are being respected and in my opinion more than some of the citizenship of some developed countries if not on par.

  16. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:13 pm

    The world recognises and respects the might of China and expectedly, her people to do business outside of China. In a spate of a short few years, I saw many mainland Chinese owning and operating restaurants, hotels and other businesses in Kathmandu.
    This very much helps the economy in Nepal. Many Nepalese have learned to speak Mandarin, and it not only helps the Nepalese to speak another language but also increases the learning of Mandarin. This is not just confined to Nepal but to countries where the Chinese are doing business. Apart from introducing their rich culture, China is also introducing their language globally.

  17. Andrea Lai on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:01 pm

    It is wonderful to know that many foreign countries are accepting Chinese into their countries. Back in many years, as I know that Chinese who are living abroad are often target of abusive, humiliation and discrimination due to their lack of knowledge, communication errors, skin colour and features. Many Chinese left their homeland due to lack of economic freedom and went abroad for better living.

    The protest at Tienanmen Square in 1989, was awakening and consciousness to the people in China about their country’s future. Ever since then, China continuously developed national economies until today. Besides, China made very good use of their country inheritance such as history of their civilization era which attracted thousands of attention whole wide for researched and visitation. With these advantages, boost up China economic successfully. Thus, Chinese people are famous with rich traditional cultures, so when they went to abroad they take their culture with them and spread to others. Therefore, this is a pride for Chinese of their success.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article.

  18. nicholas on Apr 25, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    Ever since China open their door for open market the have moved up quite a big step to where they are now. China influences in the global financial can never be denied and even the giant country like USA also wanted to be friended with and many other country would want to open for China for investment. With this no doubt for many countries to make Chinese traveling much easier and convenient.

    It’s a win win situation for China and other countries to boost their economy and with this diplomatic arrangement just show how much China has grown and being so remarkable in the eye of the world.

  19. pammie yap on Apr 25, 2017 at 10:37 pm

    With China’s progress, growing big and fast all over the world, I am not surprised that many countries welcoming them with their hands wide open. There are about 1.3 billion people in China, imagine only 1% investing in one’s country. Its amazing! So many job opportunities for both countries to develop.

    Even China government is opening its arm to overseas Chinese all over the world to come back to China and those people will be given a green card/Chinese card. This is to attract more talents home and develop their skills there and of course to contribute to the growth. Especially good for the younger generation to learn and see how they can contribute to the economy’s growth.

    Too bad for the Americans who can’t obtain visa free to travel within the EU. And not only that, they might even face court case because they failed to meet its obligations under the reciprocity agreement. I do hope that more countries will be more open and make it easier for travellers when it comes to visa.

  20. Stella Cheang on Apr 16, 2017 at 10:36 am

    The rapidly growing prestige of China passports is a sign of respect and trust from the various nations towards this awakened giant. This also indicates that China is welcomed as friends to many nations. Allowing Chinese to enter with much freedom means there will be more intense socioeconomics integration between the host nations and the Chinese, tearing down invisible borders and stereotyping that hinders inter-racial learning and inter-culture sharing. There is always something to learn from a 5000 years old culture. Thank you for this article.

    SO Easy for Chinese citizens!

    MALAYSIA LAUNCHES E-VISA FOR CHINESE TOURISTS

    Minister of Tourism & Culture Malaysia Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz (middle) flanked by the Ambassador of Malaysia to the People’s Republic of China Dato’ Zainuddin Yahya (left) and the Deputy Undersecretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs Malaysia Azman Azra Abdul Rahman at the launching ceremony.

    BEIJING, 1 March 2016: The Minister of Tourism and Culture Malaysia Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz officially launched Malaysia’s e-Visa programme today.

    The visa exemption and e-Visa programme is introduced by the Malaysian government to facilitate tourists from China travelling to Malaysia. Implementation of the e-Visa system is the key initiative to help accomplish the goal of further expanding and developing the tourism industries of both Malaysia and China.

    The implementation of the e-Visa system will be carried out in three phases starting with Chinese nationals residing in Mainland China, followed by the second phase that includes Chinese nationals residing outside Mainland China, and eventually with the final phase, which incorporates other countries such as India, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

    The e-Visa is for the purpose of travelling and visiting relatives and friends only, with the length of stay limited to 30 days and for a single entry to Malaysia within three months from the date of issuance of the e-Visa.

    Applicants will be alerted via email on their visa approval within 24 hours during working days. Starting from today, Chinese tourists can visit http://www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa, the official website for Malaysian e-Visa application, to submit relevant documents, pay a processing fee of USD25 and print the e-visa on their own.

    In addition, the Malaysian government has also announced visa-free entry from 1 March to 31 December 2016 for Chinese tourists staying in Malaysia for a period not exceeding 15 days, subject to certain conditions.

    In the launching ceremony, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri also announced the appointment of Shila Amzah, the famous Malaysian singer, as Malaysia’s Tourism Ambassador in China. Shila received wide attention after her appearance on the Chinese TV show Asian Wave and has become a household name after her participation in “I Am a Singer”. She has performed at various Sino-Malaysia diplomatic events and contributed greatly to Malaysia-China friendship. Through this appointment, Malaysia hopes more Chinese people will learn more about Malaysia and travel to the country.

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for the article. The fact that more countries readily accepted Chinese citizens into their realms shows that China’s prestige is growing in the world. The developed and developing countries around the world are more ready to welcome the Chinese citizens to visit their countries and do business. It is an affirmation of China’s status as the new superpower who take care of their citizens and therefore carry less risk when their citizens visit other countries.

    On the other hand, it is bad news for American citizens that some European countries opted to cancel the visa-free travel for American citizens since the United States have refused to reciprocate the privilege to all the European Union countries. For the European Union to even consider such steps mean that American’s influence in the world is decreasing. If they are not careful, they may lose their superpower status.

    It is interesting to note that China developed by leaps and bounds in a very short span of a few decades what took the English Industrial Revolution a century to achieve. China and Chinese had be viewed with much suspicion, but perhaps now they have begun to command a measure of respect from the world community. But with achievement comes jealousy.

    Put a Chinese anywhere in the world and he/she will survive and thrive. Such is their philosophy in life and work ethic that though marginalised in certain quarters, they always overcome and become stronger. They are survivors and do not rely on hand outs and privileges.

    In the past, the usual destination for people planning on migration was the West, i.e. any western country. USA was perceived as the land of opportunities. We are now beginning to hear of people hoping to migrate to China instead to live the China dream and ride on their boom. Clearly something has changed. Western countries are becoming more paranoid and protectionist while China is becoming more open and inclusive.

    I hear of China’s Pilot Green Card Plan to attract more overseas Chinese to go back. China’s current “permanent residence permit” system or “China Green Card” is dubbed as “the world’s most difficult to obtain”. So in future there might be a possibility for overseas ethnic Chinese people residing in foreign countries to obtain a “Chinese card”, i.e. a dual nationality. That is welcome news. So we might have options in future, especially when we overseas Chinese are hurled insults and berated to “balik Tongsan”. LoL.

    Chinese passports becoming more powerful is great news! China is being welcomed by more and more countries to visit them and trade with them.As China is becoming a mighty economic power-house, more and more Chinese businessmen are travelling abroad to engage in business with countries everywhere. The policy of China trading with other countries is that of mutual benefit.

    Also as China becomes more affluent, its nationals are travelling and visiting foreign countries for holidays abroad and for shopping. Chinese students also travel abroad to Western countries, especially, to study.

    Seeing the advantages of opening up to Chinese nationals, more and more countries are giving visa-free entries up to a certain period, as well as extensions of visas to their Chinese visitors. They are also making visa procedures easier for Chinese visitors to their countries.

    Yes, the Chinese nationals are enjoying all the greater respect and attention given to them by Western countries like US ,UK,Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as Asian countries like Japan , South Korea and Singapore!

    I am a Malaysian and I am of Chinese descendent. I inherited a lot of Chinese cultures when I grow up from my parents, teachers, siblings and friends. Though I am Malaysian, I am paying much attention to China and it is glad to learn that China is growing stronger each day.

    China’s influence to the world is getting greater everyday. China has got many projects around the world, and exporting their expertise in engineering, projects managements, buildings etc. It is really excited to see the rise of a nation which I am somehow related.

    May China grow up and become a nation of responsibility to help this world a better place for everyone.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is good to see that other countries around the world are opening their doors and welcoming the Chinese from China to visit their countries whether it is for holiday or business trip. China is such a big nation and their economy is fast growing. Who wouldn’t want to make friends with them. May many more countries open their doors and make connections with China and may every country has healthy relationship with one another.

  27. Lin Mun on Apr 7, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    This is great news for Chinese nationals to be accepted by many countries. With this acknowledgement and flexibility, it will definitely bring the ties between all countries and China closer, which will in turn enhance the economical and political relationships. May this move continue to prosper China and countries over the world.

  28. Kb thapa on Apr 7, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    This is very good news for all Chinese around the world Chinese nationals more convenient to travel overseas as more and more countries are opening their doors wider to China with visa-free policies, expended visa validity. As China growing faster and faster economically. Other hand China is more and more making new policies and improving their leadership. everyone should learn from China do the same for their country become better.

  29. Samfoonheei on Apr 7, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    China is a very powerful country since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. China has entered a new Communist era of stability, with the reform and Opening Up policies of 1978, bringing in China’s phenomenal economic growth.Since then China has been developing and more powerful each day.China was the world’s fastest-growing major economy,is now the world’s second largest economy.
    Chinese passport are granted visa free or visa on arrival access to many countries and territories, ranking the Chinese passport much sort of and it has become more powerful to date.They have a rich cultural traditions and are sharing it with other nations. It makes travelling and accessable to other countries easier and a lot of international trade going on to and flow since China opened its door to more foreign countries,
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  30. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    China is definitely a growing force to be reckon with.

    As the world’s nations take view on China and recognising the trade relations, extending visas or no issues is a definite move.

    While the world is recognising the efforts of China, the chinese nationals must also take pride of what their country is doing for them and must exact the image and reputation of that of China. There are still many PRCs who are rowdy and rude while in foreign countries, and I hope those behaviours can be improved to show how Chinese actually are: educated, well-mannered and cultured.

    Thank you.

    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.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    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 .

    Looking at those pictures in this blog says all. Hundred thousands of monks and locals from different monasteries receiving Dorje Shugden initiation from highly attained Lamas. 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.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these updates.

    Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha who has been worshipped throughout history by several schools in Tibetan Buddhism. The protector Dorje Shugden was arose from a lineage of highly attained masters who have been taking rebirth life after life. Solely for the benefit of all sentient beings and the preservation of the Dharma. Having to ask for divine help is no exception for Keng Nam. Dorje Shugden the Dharma Protector will help everyone regardless of race and faith in difficult time when pray to him sincerely.

    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

    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.

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian
