Chinese Passports Become More Powerful

Apr 6, 2017 | Views: 4,350

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.

  26. Vivian Ong on Apr 8, 2017 at 7:30 am

    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.

    So brave of Raden to risk his life to save the dog. How many of us would dare to take this step? It is an inspiring story that we all should care and love all living beings. They deserve to live freely too. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart warming story.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    nformative article on Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen which more and more people should read and understand better . The truth is the truth and how Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen rose as a Dharma Protector as promise. The closeness of 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, has cause jealousy among the officials that led to the murdered of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen more than 400 years ago by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama. The 5th Dalai Lama realised the mistakes of his officers , then built a Dorje Shugden chapel and composed a prayer texts . The Chapel still exists at Lhasa known as Trode Khangsar.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting write up

    Well good and very informative article reflexology. After reading it , I learn some knowledge from there. Reflexology may be beneficial in restoring balance and harmony in the body and releasing tension. Practitioners believe that it helps facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions, and produce a peaceful mind. Researchers have been doing a research on it , found that there’s many benefits to support it. When an application of pressure to our feet, hands, or ears , it sends a calming message to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. That’s fantastic.
    Interesting read of how the spread of reflexology was introduced to Europe can be traced to the 14th Century. And then to USA , by William H. Fitzgerald, an American doctor known as the father of reflexology. And how he developed the Zone Theory.
    Thank you Pastor Antoinette Kass for sharing this post.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. They regarded Dorje Shugen as an enlightened being, as such together with Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. It was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas. Many high Lamas has since been relying on Dorje Shugden as their dharma protector as they its a beneficial practice and has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas.
    The 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen being as a reincarnation of his own grandfather, the 35th Sakya Trizin Tashi Rinchen. Interesting stories told as how he was born and the special link with the Sakya Trizins. Dragshul Trinley Rinchen was more of a hermit lama, and incredibly having visions of both Tara and Vajrayogini.
    Recording to the Sakya throne holders the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden indeed definitively is Avalokiteshvara. Six of them are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. And even composed prayers, pujas , propagated and promoted Dorje Shugden within the sacred Sakya lineage. Chapels been built too as such they cannot be wrong in their practice and a very research evidence had also confirmed it too. Interesting read …biography of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting sharing.

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

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

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