Dear friends,

This is a wonderful recent story to share with you and lighten your heart. Please read it and share with others.

I agree with Tsechen Wongmu that it is not hard to do what she did because as she says, upon finding gold, you can just let go of the scrap iron.

Tsem Rinpoche

“I set off with my dream,
Mercy is my ship and wisdom is my sail.
I’ll return in a day
Through the rugged path after thousands of years,
If the treasure in my heart
Is appreciated.”

The poem is found on the Weibo page of Tsechen Wongmu, or Ma Ying, before her conversion into a Buddist. The 25-year-old graduated from Qingdao University and, now practices Buddism as a nun in the Xinlongdongzhi Temple amid the snow-covered mountains of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Region in Sichuan province, 4,200 meters above the sea level.

Born in Shandong’s capital Jinan city, Ma learned about Buddhism from her grandmother since childhood. She started practicing Buddism in 2009. Three years later, she shaved her head and became a nun.

“July 2012 was my second travel to the sacred mountain (the mountain where her master stays). I didn’t think about becoming a nun before the trip, but as I climbed the mountain, I felt as if I was getting ashore and, when I look back, it was all whirlpools underneath. The next morning when I woke up, I heard myself say: I don’t want to descend the hill anymore,” Tsechen Wongmu told sina.com.

Many Weibo bloggers praised Tsechen Wongmu for her courage to make the decision and detach herself from secular life, to which she said: “I often replied that it doesn’t need any courage, just like you throw away scrap iron when you get gold. As you learn and practice more of Buddhism, you’ll find every word that the Budda says is right and wise. The decision was not difficult at all.”

Like other Buddhist monks and nuns, Tsechen Wongmu also aims at delivering all living creatures from torment. She wants to help people “in every second”.

Tsechen Wongmu told a story of a Korean man who became a monk at the age of 24 after receiving his PhD in Princeton University. He prefers to be a “community monk” rather than a monk who lives in the mountain and talks “nonsense”. Tsechen Wongmu said a “community nun” is also her goal.

Tsechen Wongmu also hopes to spread the Pure Land Sect of Buddhism, especially to the rural areas.

“Villagers, particularly senior villagers, are mostly kind and honest, but not many of them can get enlightenment from Buddhism.”

As for the question that whether Tsechen Wongmu would resume secular life in the future, she said “When a man wakes up, he cannot dream on as if he were sleeping.”

She also mentioned the movie The Matrix, in which the hero Neo was given a choice from two pills: choose the blue pill he’ll live on in a virtual world, forgetting about everything; and choose the red pill he’ll learn about the reality and face various challenges.

“I’ve chosen the red pill. But I found that comparing to the reality in The Matrix, our reality is much more beautiful,” said Tsechen Wongmu.

    Inspiring a college-student-turned nun from Xinlong Dongzhi temple in Sichuan province . She wrote a poem and diary, posted in social media has won public attentions. She started to practice Buddhism and took decision and moved to the temple on the snow-covered plateau 4,200 meters above sea level. Admired her courage to make the decision and detach herself from secular life. She believes that Buddha says right things, which is her only answer to the question why she wants to be a nun.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  2. Yee Yin on Jan 30, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this inspiring and beautiful story of Ma Ying. She is inspiring because at a very young age, she has already realised the samsasa is a delusion. She was born in a very wealthy family, her life is very comfortable and easy but she knew it is a delusion so she decided to become a nun.

    She must have a very strong Dharma imprint that leads her to walk on the spiritual path at this young age. She reminds me of Tenzin Palmo who was also ordained at a very young age. She is also very lucky in the sense that she was born in a family that supports her decision. I truly rejoice for her. Not many people can give up a comfortable and easy life to live simply and to work hard for others without getting anything back in return.

    I like how she used the scene in Matrix to describe her decision to be ordained. She said we have 2 choices, 1 is to continue to live in a delusional world; 1 is to learn about the reality and face various challenges. It is hard to face challenges or to see the flaws in us, but if we overcome them and transform, we will become better and that will liberate us from the sufferings we create for ourselves.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 20, 2014 at 11:34 pm

    Inspiring there are young people who can let go of their samsaric life just like that. I suppose the teachings have really sunk into her and she realises there is no essence to her worldly life. The movie Matrix whether it was intentional or not, does point to the fact that there is reality that is hidden from our sight. Anyways I do rejoice in her taking the monastic vows to benefit sentient beings.

  4. Loh Ann Leong (Penang) on Jul 15, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    Rejoice to Tsechen Wongmu for letting go of worldly objects, inspired by the her determinations and thus encouragement to us for grasped as much of Dharma teachings and practises in this very much precious lifetime. Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this.

  5. HEE TS on Jul 8, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story. This story reminded me that money and attachment is not important in our life. Spiritual practice should be the most important things in our life.

  6. PB on Jul 8, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.
    She is so brave and determine. Rejoice for her.
    I like to wash movie Matrix as well. If I were given the pills: I would like to choose the red pill as well. But I not enough determination, wisdom and compassion to do that yet.

  7. Irene Lim on Jul 8, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    Tsechen Wongmu’s past life imprints must be very strong for her to begin her spiritual practice early in her life and with good motivation. I truly rejoice for her.

  8. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jul 7, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    I like the Tsechen Wongmu’s statment : “I often replied that it doesn’t need any courage, just like you throw away scrap iron when you get gold. As you learn and practice more of Buddhism, you’ll find every word that the Budda says is right and wise. The decision was not difficult at all.”
    Simple yet profile.

  9. Penang Study Group on Jun 30, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this story. Indeed, Ma Ying is an inspirational to all of us in this day and age. All of our members applauded for her firm decision to become a nun. It is not easy for most of us especially in this degenerate time. She has everything but she has chosen to walk the Buddha’s path. Besides, we admired her straightforward yet truthful replied, when she was being asked the reason for her decision. Indeed, Dharma is ‘gold’ and everything else are scrap iron. May we treasure this ‘gold’ too. May many more sentient beings will be touched by her story and especially by her works.

    Attendees:Soon Huat, Kong, Kai Lynn, Swee Ching, Kat, Louis Lit and Jacinta.

  10. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Jun 29, 2014 at 12:42 am

    Rejoice to Tsechen Wongmu. She’s such a courageous young girl with such supportive family. There are obstacles around us in our dharma path & she has managed to overcome it & detached herself from the worldly ‘scrap iron’ because she has found her ‘pot of gold’ .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us such an inspirational story.

  11. Gordon on Jun 29, 2014 at 12:04 am

    did post Ma Ying story on my facebook when I came across in local Chinese newspaper, last months ago. It is Inspiration story that such a young girl who willing let go secular life to become nun, which very rare case happened nowadays. May I wish Ma Ying continue propagating Buddha teaching and achieve liberation.

  12. Li Kheng on Jun 26, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Tsechen Wonmu’s view has such great clarity and resolve. The part where she describes her journey up to the sacred mountain where her Guru lived as climbing ashore, away from the “whirlpool” of samsara was very powerful. Many of us have had the opportunity to ascend from the “whirlpool below” but, due to our three poisons of ignorance, ego and anger, we find ourselves descending back into the uncontrolled turmoil os samsara.

    Tsechen Wongmu is a great example to all of us as she embarks on a journey dedicated to benefitting others and in pursuit of inner peace and happiness.

  13. Soon Huat (Penang) on Jun 25, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing such wonderful and inspiring story with us. I truly rejoice to Tsechen Wongmu for her big decision. She can hold her vow so strongly and faithfully. I like her two sentences: “just like you throw away scrap iron when you get gold” and “When a man wakes up, he cannot dream on as if he were sleeping.”

    “just like you throw away scrap iron when you get gold” indicated that she is able to renounce everything for Buddhism such as youth, wealth and beauty. It reminded me the Rinpoche article “Good Investment”, we need to invest our youth, wealth and energy wisely. We should invest all our energy and time to learn Dharma knowledge and put into practice to benefit others

    I love this sentence: “When a man wakes up, he cannot dream on as if he were sleeping.” Waking up from our worldly dream should be our goal.A lot of us are still staying in the dream and pursuing the worldly goals such as reputation, wealth etc. In fact, we are creating negative karma daily when we pursuing these goals and that is why we are always stuck in samsara.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this story with us. Tsechen Wongmu indeed is very good example for us to learn.

  14. Julia Tan on Jun 25, 2014 at 1:52 am

    I truly agree with what Tsechen Wangmu said, you do not need courage nor to be brave to do so because when you realize that you are chasing for something highest of the high you will let go of those meaningless to you. Just like Pastor Jean Ai, everything just came so naturally. May I become like Tsechen Wangmu and Pastor Jean Ai soon, giving my best to others.

  15. Jacinta Goh on Jun 24, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    For some, it will be a hard decision but for her, she seemed determined.
    Tsechen Wongmu, to you I rejoice from the depths of my heart.

    Despite having to live and practice an ascetic lifestyle, you also aspire to become a ‘community nun’ that vowed to work tirelessly for the benefits of all sentient being. All that I can do is to put my two thumbs up, but for you, your limitless deeds cover the grounds far and wide.

    To Rinpoche, I thank you so much for sharing this. It will be a joy to see more of this story especially in Kechara. It will be the greatest joy to You and for all.

    • Jacinta Goh on Mar 31, 2020 at 1:40 pm

      Rediscovering the courage of Tsechen Wongmu. She walks the talk while I’m still aspiring.

      Keep on the good work and hope you have reached the other shore ? and benefitting limitless beings.

  16. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Jun 23, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this inspiring true example of a young person to become a nun or Sangha member. I truly rejoice and feel happy for Ma Ying as she receives full support from her both parents to spend the rest of her life to become an ordained person and letting go all of the worldly materials, career, secular life, entertainment, pleasures and so on.. at her very young age. At her young age, she has already renounced to the world and realize only Dharma and Buddhism can bring us out from sufferings and unhappiness in this life and many lifetimes ahead. I respect her to wish to become a community nun and brings more benefits and Dharma to the people who have yet to meet with Buddhism and yet to realize the Truth as taught by Buddha Shakyamuni 2600 years ago…

  17. May Ong on Jun 23, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    This inspiration life story of a young person leaving the secular world to practice dharma is always inspiring, especially in this degenerate age, for the continuity of spirituality and lineage.

    It reaffirms the concept of instilling dharma in our minds so we may practice dharma in future lives, just like Tsechen Wongmu who have the seeds in her.

    May she attain enlightenment in this lifetime.

  18. Wylfred Ng on Jun 23, 2014 at 5:04 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    This is really an inspiring real life story.
    Really rejoice to her that she is able to practice Buddhism and her family support her decision.

    Hope that she will inspire more people to practice Buddhism in a very young age.

    Thanks

  19. sarahyap on Jun 22, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    Wow such an inspiring story. It is not often we get to see such a young and beautiful girl renouncing samsara and decide to live a spiritual life. She may be physically young, but her spiritual maturity surpasses so many of us.

    Thank you for sharing this inspiring story with us Rinpochela. And yes, it is true that when we see the true nature and value of Dharma, we will never want to part with it and will find it natural to pursue a spiritual path instead of a samsaric one.

  20. Grace Leong on Jun 22, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    Ma Ying had the perfect conditions for her to meet and practice the Dharma. She met the Dharma at a young age from her grandma, studied it and very quickly understood and opened up imprints of her past life, whereby she must already have accumulated wisdom and merits to be able to renounce at such a young age. Totally rejoice for her !

  21. Boon on Jun 21, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    众生因无明的原故,经常错误的将世间法当成长法来看待,因此遭遇了许多烦恼及痛苦。这位美丽动人的女生,马滢肯放下了世间的娱乐等而出家为僧的精神实在值得我们的赞赏。祈愿她能够顺利的将佛法传予更多的人,以便他们能够减少所面对的烦恼,产生心灵转化,最终得以早日证果。

  22. Sean Wang on Jun 20, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    Thank you for sharing this inspirational story about this beautiful young lady who chose to lead a spiritual lifestyle. I rejoice for her accomplishment. It is people like her that show that it is possible for people to be born in the modern age and still be great practitioners.

  23. Edwin Tan on Jun 20, 2014 at 11:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is such a beautiful story of such a young girl that gained so much wisdom at such a young age. Letting go of attachments and serving the community. Truly a strong act of compassion displayed in most sangha.

    May she touch the many lives she meets and spread the Dharma

    Thank u

  24. AdelineTan on Jun 20, 2014 at 1:24 am

    Very wise and compassionate young Tsechen Wongmu who gave up her youth to benefit others! May her spiritual path flourish and all her wishes be fulfilled. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful and inspiring post.

  25. Yee Mun on Jun 19, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Rejoice for Tsechen Wongmu. She is lucky that she get the support from her parents and she has found her “gold” and let go of the scrap iron at such a young age. May she continue to turn the dharma wheel and benefit many beings.

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing such an inspirational story.

  26. Nancy Loo on Jun 19, 2014 at 6:49 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story about this young nun. At such young age she is able to understand so much about her inner thoughts and needs. Therefore, she has chosen the spiritual path and left all her attachments, comforts and baggage behind without looking back. Really admired her decision and courage. She is indeed fortunate to have her parents blessings and support. May she has a smooth sailing path to be the benefit of many and may those who has come across this story be able to wake up and practise the dharma without any further delay.

  27. Pastor Adeline on Jun 18, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Such an inspiring story for all of us! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing! Indeed it is easy to make life changing decision when we choose to go all the way. Difficult in making decision are due to us wanting the chance to fall back in samsara. Making decision is very easy when we see the truth and understand nothing else is more important than that!

  28. Patsy on Jun 18, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    She is an inspiration. Ma Ying is young, educated and comes from a well to do family yet she made the right choice to abandon worldly affairs and chose to be a nun. She reminds me of Pastor Jean Ai who has chosen the spiritual path at a young age. I rejoice for them!

  29. Shelly tai on Jun 18, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story about Ma Ying. This young nun has choose to renounce in her early age not interested in all the worldly life this is something a lot of people should learn from . Along our spiritual journey if we need to forgo something worldly I think is no big deal look at this young nun who give up everything that we think is pleasure. I rejoice for Ma Ling may three jewels bless her and may she be able to spread Dharma to more people.

  30. Uncle Eddie on Jun 18, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    Tsechen Wongmu, who was highly praised by many of the bloggers to have made the brave decision to be a nun at Xinlongdongci Temple, amidst snow-covered mountains at Sichuan Province, hopefully can later on turn-out to be another “Cheng Yen” like the Taiwanese buddhist nun of Tzu Chi Organisation, who was initially a teacher, philanthropist,and later on often being called “The mother Teresa of Asia”. Perhaps, she truly has the devotion,dedication and determination to become a successful compassionate nun, when she said in the blog, that “as you learn and practise more buddhism, you find every word that Buddha said is right and wise”. She has expressed her aims to help people every second and hope to deliver all living creatures from torment. She also has the wish to spread the pure land sect of Buddhism specially to the rural areas, and for this and her pure bright legitimate future we wish her every success! Om mani Padme Hung.

  31. Wendy Loh on Jun 18, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    I truly rejoice for Tsechen Wongmu (Ma Ying)’s wise decision to be a nun. I pray that her path in spreading the Buddha-Dharma be smooth and victorious. May many benefit from her kindness and compassion.

  32. Pastor Han Nee on Jun 18, 2014 at 11:26 am

    In a world that is so full of distractions, and coming from a wealthy family as well as having gone to a University and graduated from it, this young lady, in her twenties,has such rare wisdom as to choose to leave her comfortable secular life,to become a renunciate, a nun to serve all beings and deliver them from suffering.

    Her extraordinary wisdom and awakened state have allowed her to see that Dharma is gold and, having found gold, to just let go of the scrap iron, which are the trappings of secular life and materialism.

    Yes, it must be strong imprints from past lives, and she is continuing her spiritual journey in this life, armed with such a high level of spiritual realization.

    I rejoice for her and am deeply inspired by her. Indeed her story will be very inspirational,especially for young people.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspirational story on this blog.

  33. LT Loo on Jun 18, 2014 at 11:24 am

    Upon seeing ordained picture of her, I will refrain myself of writing beautiful praising words as no amount of words could justify it.(no capable of writing it it anyway)I just visualize her as a big sister, a teacher to the kids and a daughter to many elders in the nearby villages…._/\_

  34. KYC on Jun 18, 2014 at 11:21 am

    This young nun has inspired many people, young and old. I rejoice for her and hope she will fulfill her wish to be a community nun and bring Dharma to the ordinary people she cares so much about. This is surely due to strong imprints from her past life.

  35. freon on Jun 18, 2014 at 1:35 am

    Amazing!
    A young girl at her age is so determine to be a nun! Especially in this era where lots of “entertainment” and distraction, it is not easy to renounce.
    She is lucky that her parents supported her on this idea. Rejoice

  36. keng tan on Jun 18, 2014 at 1:16 am

    Oh Wow, truly inspiring…

  37. patriciasnodgrass on Jun 17, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    I am SO happy for her!

  38. abby foo on Jun 17, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us. Her words are full with wisdom: ‘you throw away scrap iron when you get gold. As you learn and practice more of Buddhism, you’ll find every word that the Budda says is right and wise. The decision was not difficult at all.’

    Dharma is the best gold in life, and it cannot be taken away by anyone and it cannot fade with time or space. Dharma is the one thing that worth to ‘chase after’. And Dharma is the one and last thing that can help us during our death. This is what Rinpoche always remind us.

  39. Choongs on Jun 17, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    The world is blessed by her decision. I’m so so happy.

  40. Alan Chan (KHJB) on Jun 17, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It amazing story , it must be previous life merit to reconnect to the dharma path. She know that dharma is a gold that why she really cherish it as treasure. Rejoice .

  41. Jace Chong on Jun 17, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Very beautiful story, thanks Rinpoche for sharing this.

    Not everyone in the modern society will choose this path as most of us think life is about how much materials you have. Chasing after fame and wealth is what most of us do, and thought this is the only path and ultimately I would be happy when I gain the maximum wealth.

    Ma Ying sees through that, and she took one step further to show us, what’s a meaningful life. I can see how happy and fulfilled she is after she shaved and become a nun.

    Thanks Ma Ying, may more people take on your path for others.

  42. ron wong on Jun 17, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    The story of Ma Ying is really an inspiration & encouraging to read. She seems to know what path to take at her very young age, when the time & condition ripen at the peak of her life she immediately took on the path as if she is just continuing what she has been doing before.

    She has demonstrate much wisdom & compassion in the way she deliver her messages & reply to challenging question asked. She will be a role model to both practitioner & ordinary people to practice kindness to others.

    I truly rejoice for her. I wish her well & may her spiritual journey be fruitful & benefit many.

  43. Choi Sheem on Jun 17, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    Rinpoche, this is a very inspiring account of a young girl leaving everything to become a nun. Ma Ying is young, educated and a bright samsaric future awaiting her. Yet she has chosen to renounce the worldly affair to become a nun to benefit others. I am so happy for Ma Ying to have the support of her parents to become a nun and pray that she would inspire more young and educated individuals to the path chosen by her. Thank you Rinpoche for showing us this message.

  44. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jun 17, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    Rejoice to Tsechen Wongmu (Ma Ying), her previous accumulate Merits become a powerful imprint that make her able to become a nun without obstacles hence have supports from her family also…

    May she blessed by 3 jewels always hence have a swift Dharma path…

  45. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 17, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    I knew this young nun is from social media, her family gave her strong support for her become a sangha. When she was in university study she already knew her future will not same with her friends. Deep inside she know she will go and look for what her inner needs.

    The amazing thing is she is beautiful, smart and intelligent, but she too choose the most intelligent path for her rest of her life.

    Now she is do prayer, sharing Dharma and give blessing to people she meet. So powerful example she is showing us. Her determination become a nun, really tell the world directly, we need to listen our inner voice rather than external noise.

    I really feel happy for her determination and courage!Rejoice for her!!!

  46. Victor Choi on Jun 17, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    Very inspiring story. My heart felt deeply with her decision to let go the scrap that we appreciate and chasing for it. Dharma is Gold, the gold that can carry along to our next life with our mind ( centre of our heart chakra )

    Thank you so much Rinpoche!

  47. tsemtulku on Jun 17, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    From Sock Wan: I have read about her. She is from a wealthy family and received good education. At a very young age she has already realised what normal people are chasing for, money, career, relationship etc are not bringing us to any where. She reminds me of Pastor Jean Ai, who also at a very young age already decided to pursue spiritual practice. They must have very strong imprints from their past lives. I truly rejoice!

  48. sky81 on Jun 17, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    At a young age she can let go of so much, talk about spiritual maturity. The way is she answered the questions posed to her is very skillful and showed she has much wisdom. What is perplexing or crazy is that people have the nerve of asking her whether she want to resume secular life. She just become a nun. It’s like you just become a parent and you were asked whether you’re going to be single again. There are people who would test your conviction when they see you challenging convention and their way of thinking. I wish her best of luck and and be the inspiration for others to follow her footstep to benefit others through practicing Dharma.

  49. Sharon Ong on Jun 17, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this inspirational story about this beautiful young woman who chose a beautiful spiritual path in life. It is very refreshing to read about someone so young who is certain about what she wants in terms of spirituality. At her age, I was still grappling with a career choice. Am very happy for her and pray that she will flourish in her path.

    Everything is changeable, everything appears and disappears. There is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death. Everything in life is just for a while and everything is impermanent. By contemplating the impermanence of everything in the world, we are forced to recognize that every time we do something could be the last time we do it. Everything is changing all the time that is the basic message we have to accept. Reading these precious teachings in this article had me think that what makes every single day so precious. We should not waste a single moment we have , live till the fullness meaningfully with no regrets.
    Thank you for sharing this article to remind us of our impermanent life. Choosing to learn, practice Buddhism is the best choice I have made.

    Everyone’s dream home is different and often includes some pretty crazy features or has a design that’s fantastic in a fictional sense. To me I rather chose one simple and comfortable concepts. Beautiful and simple makes a perfect place to live in. The design concepts as mentioned by Rinpoche is simple , spacious with greeneries surrounding ,making it more comfortable as to sit there to have a quiet moments to ourselves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this architecture design.

    Happy ending story of how Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden helped Joy Kam. This is one of the many miracle stories that Dorje Shugden has helped saving lives from sickness, accidents and so forth. Reading this story again as its simply amazing of how the miracles happened. When we truly have trust and faith on our Dharma Protector , it will help us nor matter what happen and help us regardless of race as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    Nothing is Impermanent, for sure can you imagine a beautiful just simply disappeared under sea due to natural disaster . It sunk and was discovered only after 1700 years later. It is an important reminder of impermanence for us all. Letting go whatever we hold on in this life as we came to this world with nothing and leaving with nothing too. I have heard of tales and myths of lost civilizations in books. But this is interesting. The famous ancient city of Neapolis, a quasi-mythical city that sunk beneath the waters of the Atlantic Ocean was discovered after so many thousand years. It was the divers who discovered the lost city then during one of their sea exploration. Its must be a massive tsunami that had taken place and sunk the whole city.Interesting discoveries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Hermits are monks and nuns looking for wisdom. Many go up the remote mountains , spending their time in solitude meditation in order to master their spiritually practice, gaining profundity and knowledge. Its in the mountains away from the city they find a piece of mind to mediate and practice to transform their mind. Watching the video tells us all. Each of the hermits specks with words of wisdom that’s where they earns respect in Chinese society.
    An inspiring man Bill Porter one of the foremost Chinese poetry and essay translators in the world went searching for an answer of the lives of hermits. Bill Porter is the author of the book Road to Heaven, he travelled to hash, remote mountains of Zhongnan Mountain describing his journeys and encounter with Chinese Hermits in the book. Very inspiring documentary which tell us a thousand inspiring words . Life is simple yet the hermits are happy letting go all the worries of the world outside. He discovered then the hermit tradition is very much alive, as dozens of monks and nuns continue to lead solitary lives in quiet contemplation of their faith deep in the mountains.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    Getting quality sleep is one of the best things that we can do to maintaining a good lifestyle throughout our entire lifetime. People often give up good sleep due to busy lifestyle.

    In fact we need sleep to survive, just like we need food and water, in fact there are many biological processes happen during sleep. Lack of sleep can result in decreased immune system function, decreased body temperature as well as a decreased release of growth hormone.

    Thank you very much for your valuable sharing and all these 10 pointers are good guidelines for those who have trouble sleeping.

    Very inspiring nun Ani Ngawang Pema a Tibetan Buddhist who stayed in solitary meditation for 45 years. Once in a while it’s good to remind ourselves that there are true spiritual seekers in the world today. She was a student of H.H Trulshik Rinpoche. She was known as the most beautiful girl when she was young in the northeast of Nepal. Many rich and famous families would seek her marriage but she chose a monastery life instead to practice Dharma. Later she stayed in a small hut in solitary meditation for 45 years where nobody see her at all. Soon she became a legend and every one who passed her hut to receive blessings, recite prayers and even circumambulate her small hut.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post.

    A beautiful picture of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche cutting our lama’s hairs back in 1984 tells us a thousand words . That’s where our lama begin a long life spiritual journey travelling a thousand miles to India to be a monk. A promise made to his root guru to take ordination and go to Gaden Monastery. Meeting Kyabje Zong Rinpoche had changed our Lama’s life for the better forever. With all the sufferings and hardship our lama had gone through since young had not deter Rinpoche from becoming a monk. The promise was kept, even though Kyabje Zong Rinpoche had since passed away. Rinpoche became a monk and was advised coming to Malaysia and that’s where we have Kechara Forest Retreat today.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. The pictures indeed have a great memories.

    What a nice and breathtaking statue that there is in Macau!It would be nice if I had the wonderful chance to go to Macau to see this statue. Kuan Yin will prevent huge obstacles from hitting Macau also attract more and more tourist to come to Macau to visit and pay respects to Kuan Yin.
    Its good to know the reason why this Kuan Yin statue looks a little westernized compared to the ones in Mainland China. Strange thing is, no matter how one depicts Kuan Yin, She always looks beautiful. Thank you very much for the 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

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
