Reaching Out in Bentong | 关注文冬

Dear all,

Last night it rained heavily in Bentong and surrounding areas, causing a major landslide on Karak Highway and fallen trees at many spots and flood on the old Bentong road (Bentong to Gombak).

The police, government officers (especially JKR),  volunteer workers such as RELA, highway employees, and road workers were on duty around town/on highway/ on the Old Bentong Road to manage & direct the traffic and clear the road under heavy downpour.

They have been in the hard cold rain for hours. Rinpoche has noticed this. They were still smiling and pleasant doing their duties. Some did not have raincoats and just the hard cold rain pelting down on their heads and they were soaked.

Rinpoche felt moved by their dedication and attitude, and called up Pam, Khoo and Nicholas together with Pastor Seng Piow and Pastor Shin to deliver hot coffee and snacks for them around town.

We started delivering around 10pm and finished around 2am. All together we packed 55 cup of hot coffee from Old Town White Coffee and snacks from 7-11 which cost around RM450.

This is our way to tell them we appreciate their work very much, especially working under rough weather. They were surprised and very happy when receiving the much needed hot drinks and most of them have heard of Kechara it seems.

Our effort last night initiated by Rinpoche is to show our local community & people  that Kechara is here to stay, and that we support and get involve to help when such unfortunate events/disaster happen in our town Bentong. Many were very appreciative, thanking us and waving at us when we drove past them again last night on our way back to Kechara Forest Retreat.

Thank you
Nicholas

Dear Nicholas,

Thank you for a wonderful update re last night.

I would like to add that His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche joined us for the whole event. He went with us to order the hot coffees at Old Town White Coffee and bought snacks at 7-11. Tsem Rinpoche also joined us to personally deliver food to everyone and guide us along the way. We started around 10pm last night (November 11, 2015) and we completed at 2am.

We had to go a few rounds to buy coffee and snacks as we ran out. We were allowed to drive in restricted areas by Police and authorized road works people as we were delivering goodwill coffee and snacks on behalf of Kechara.

The policemen, road workers and recipients were all very friendly, happy and surprised. I don’t think anyone has ever done this before.

Tsem Rinpoche’s care and concern for our community helps to foster even warmer relations with our fellow towns people during a time of need.

Our team last night of Nicholas, Khoo, Pamela, Pastor Shin and myself together with Tsem Rinpoche really felt honored for driving in the flooded/tree fallen areas to deliver goodwill because Rinpoche saw how much work and effort the authorities were putting in as the heavy rain pelted on their heads. Rinpoche was very moved to see road workers without umbrellas or raincoats getting soaked in the rain for hours and yet when Rinpoche rolled down the window to speak to them about travel routes, they smiled and were polite. Seeing their smile on their wet faces and hard work, Tsem Rinpoche was moved to bring them drinks and snacks. This is the important point, they worked very hard and still smiled in the rain…this moved Rinpoche very much..Here are videos of Rinpoche recorded two videos of last night.

Tsem Rinpoche expressed he wishes to do much more of this in the future and be ready to serve the community.

杨力明,

感谢您针对昨天所发生的事的报告。

昨晚尊敬的詹杜固仁波切也与我们一起同行。仁波切率领我们去“旧街场”咖啡室买热腾腾的咖啡和在7-11便利店买许多零食。仁波切也亲自引导我们去给在场的工作人员派发点心和饮料。我们的行动从昨晚10点钟(2015年11月11日)开始至凌晨2点。

因为买来的咖啡和零食不足,我们也跑了好几趟去买更多的咖啡和零食。警察和修路员工们允许我们进入限制区去派送咖啡和零食。

警察、修路的工作人员等都非常友善,他们很开心和感到惊讶。我想以前应该没有人对他们这么热心付出过。

詹杜固仁波切在这种非常时期对我们社群的照顾与关怀会使当地人民对我们更加熟悉,拉近我们彼此的距离。

昨晚杨力明,邱豪皓,叶小美,陈稚鑫讲法师和我随同詹杜固仁波切真的感到非常荣幸可以在发生事故的地方里驾车送上我们的小小心意给他们。仁波切看见了在倾盆大雨中修路的工作人员在没有穿雨衣或带雨伞的情况下还可以面带微笑并且很有礼貌的一一解答仁波切有关别路线的问题,觉得很被感动而决定买咖啡和零食给他们以示感激和支持。重点是他们在倾盆大雨中工作还可以带着微笑,这一点感动了仁波切。以下是仁波切昨晚录下来的视频。

詹杜固仁波切也希望以后可以为这里的社群付出更多来帮助他们。

在此附上照片与大家分享。

大家 好,

昨天晚上文冬及周边地区下起了大雨,造成加叻大道 (Karak Highway) 和老文冬路(文冬至鹅麦)许多地点树木倒下, 土崩和洪水。

警察,政府官员(尤其是JKR),志愿工作者如RELA,高速公路员工,路工在城镇周围/大道/老文冬路指挥交通,并在倾盆大雨下清理道路。

他们在数个小时的大雨下工作。仁波切已经注意到了这一点。他们仍然面带微笑,愉快地尽自己的职责工作。有些没有雨衣,冰冷的滂沱大雨往头上一直落下, 他们全身都湿透了。

仁波切被他们的敬业精神和态度感动了,指示叶小美, 邱豪皓,杨力明与罗胜彪讲法师和陈稚鑫讲法师给这些在文冬镇周围的工作者提供热咖啡和小吃。

我们晚上10点左右开始行动, 派送至凌晨2点左右。我们从Old Town 白咖啡一共打包了55杯热咖啡和在7-11大包了一些小吃, 总共消费大约RM450。

当我们分发饮料和小吃时,我们告诉大家,我们是来自文冬的克切拉团体。这是我们向他们表达谢意的一种方式, 让他们知道我们非常赞赏他们的工作,特别是在如此恶劣的天气和环境下工作。接到热饮时,他们感到很惊讶,也很高兴。

仁波切发起的行动,是我们让当地社区的人们知道克切拉长期入驻文冬,我们支持并会在我们的文冬城发生如此不幸事件/灾难时伸出援手。许多人非常感激我们,当我们在返回禅修林路上再次路过工作人员时, 他们都朝我们挥手。

谢谢
杨力明

Berikutan hujan lebat yang berlanjutan sejak petang semalam di kawasan sekitar Bentong, Pahang pada 11 hari bulan November, kejadian tanah runtuh telah berlaku di Lebuhraya KL-Kuantan (Karak) berhampiran Bukit Tinggi. Manakala di jalan lama KL-Bentong, pokok tertumbang di tengah jalan raya juga telah menyebabkan laluan terhalang. Selepas kejadian ini berlaku, pihak berkuasa tempatan dan sukarelawan seperti Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) Daerah Bentong, Polis Daerah Bentong, RELA, dan lain-lain bertindak serta-merta  untuk memulihkan laluan dan menjalankan kerja pembersihan.

Tsem Rinpoche pada ketika itu sedang dalam perjalanan dari Kechara Forest Retreat ke Kuala Lumpur dan Tsem Rinpoche melihat pihak-pihak disebut di atas yang terlibat dalam kerja pemulihan dan pembersihan tetap berkerja keras dan mengurus trafik dengan senyuman walaupun berkerja dalam keadaan basah kuyup kerana hujan. Mereka masih mampu menjawab soalan kami tentang keadaan trafik dengan penuh kesabaran ketika kerja pembersihan dijalankan.  Tsem Rinpoche amat terharu dengan usaha-usaha yang dilakukan oleh pihak yang disebut atas, lalu membuat keputusan untuk menghantar kopi panas dan makanan ringan kepada petugas dan pekerja yang terlibat. Bersama beberapa ahli Kechara Forest Retreat, Rinpoche membeli kira-kira 50 kopi panas dari Old Town White Coffee dengan roti/ biskut dari 7 Eleven berhampiran dan kembali ke tempat kejadian untuk mengedarkan makanan dan minuman sebagai tanda penghargaan dari pihak kami. Petugas dan pekerja turut gembira menerima makanan dan minuman daripada kami.

Tsem Rinpoche dan pihak Kechara Forest Retreat sekali lagi ingin mengucapkan terima kasih dan memberi penghargaan dan sokongan kepada Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, Jabatan Kerja Raya(JKR) Daerah Bentong, Polis Daerah Bentong, RELA, dan lain-lain pihak yang bekerja keras siang dan malam untuk memulihkan laluan di sekitar Bentong. Syabas dan usaha anda amat dihargai.

**************************

Kawan-kawan sekalian,

Pada 11 hari bulan November, Bentong dan tempat berhampirannya telah dilanda hujan lebat dan hujan lebat tersebut telah menyebabkan tanah runtuh serius berlaku di lebuhraya Karak dan pokok tumbang menghalang laluan di beberapa lokasi di jalan lama KL-Bentong (Bentong ke Gombak).

Pihak polis daerah Bentong, pihak berkuasa tempatan (terutamanya pihak JKR daerah Bentong), sukarelawan seperti RELA, petugas lebuhraya, dan pekerja jalan raya bertugas bawah hujan lebat di sekitar bandar Bentong dan jalan lama KL-Bentong untuk mengurus trafik dan menjalankan kerja-kerja pembersihan laluan.

Mereka dibasahi titisan hujan sejuk selama beberapa jam. Namun begitu, mereka tetap menjalankan tugas masing-masing dengan senyuman atas muka. Ada beberapa pekerja yang seluruh badannya dibasah hujan kerana tidak mempunyai baju hujan. Tsem Rinpoche melihat keadaan ini dalam matanya.  

Tsem Rinpoche amat terharu dengan dedikasi dan sikap mereka, lalu menelefon Pam, Khoo, Nicholas, serta Pastor Seng Piow dan Pastor Shin untuk menghantar kopi panas dan makanan ringgan kepada mereka di sekitar bandar.

Bermula dari pukul 10 malam dan berakhir pada pukul 2 pagi, kami telah menghantar 55 cawan kopi panas dari Old Town White Coffee dan makanan ringan dari 7-11. Jumlah kos adalah RM450.

Ini adalah cara kami untuk memberi penghargaan terhadap usaha mereka, terutamanya apabila mereka bekerja bawah cuaca buruk. Mereka terperanjat tapi gembira menerima minuman panas yang amat diperlukan pada ketika it. Rasanya kebanyakan daripada mereka pernah dengar nama Kechara.

Usaha kami pada malam ini adalah daripada ilham Tsem Rinpoche, untuk menghantar mesej kepada komuniti Bentong, bahawa Kechara akan tetap berada di sini dan kita akan memberi sokongan dan melibatkan diri untuk menghulur bantuan apabila kejadian malang dan bencana berlaku. Kebanyakan daripada petugas dan pekerja menghargai usaha kami dan mengucapkan terima kasih, ada yang melambai pada kami apabila kami beredar dan pulang ke Kechara Forest Retreat.

Sekian,
Nicholas

**************************

Saudara Nicholas,

Terima kasih kerana berkongsi pengalaman tentang malam semalam.

Saya ingin menambah bahawa Tsem Rinpoche juga hadir bersama kami untuk seluruh aktiviti semalam. Tsem Rinpoche dan kami membeli kopi panas di Old Town White Coffee dan juga makanan ringan di 7 Eleven. Tsem Rinpoche juga hadir sendiri untuk menghantar makanan kepada petugas-petugas di sepanjang jalan. Aktiviti kami bermula di sekitar jam 10 malam semalam (November 11, 2015) dan tamat lebih kurang pada 2 pagi.

Kami terpaksa pergi balik beberapa kali untuk membeli kopi dan makanan ringan kerana tidak cukup bekalan. Kami dibenarkan untuk memandu di kawasan larangan buat sementara waktu oleh polis dan pihak berkuasa untuk menghantar kopi panas dan makanan ringan bagi pihak Kechara.

Anggota polis, pekerja jalan raya dan petugas lain yang menerima makanan semua sangat peramah, gembira dan agak terkejut dengan kehadiran kami. Saya rasa mereka tidak terfikir ada sesiapa yang akan berbuat demikian.

Keprihatinan Tsem Rinpoche terhadap kommuniti akan membantu dalam usaha memupuk hubungan lebih erat dengan penduduk bandar Bentong di saat-saat memerlukan.

Ahli-ahli dari Kechara yang hadir semalam adalah Nicholas, Khoo, Pamela, Pastor Shin dan saya, bersama dengan H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Kami amat bangga kerana kami diizinkan untuk memandu ke dalam kawasan banjir dan pokok tumbang dengan niat baik untuk menghantar kopi panas and makanan ringan. Rinpoche sendiri menjadi saksi kepada betapa tekun petugas-petugas bekerja keras di bawah hujan. Rinpoche sangat terharu melihat pekerja lebuhraya bekerja dalam keadaan basah kuyup tanpa payung dan baju hujan sehingga berjam-jam. Apabila Rinpoche menurunkan tingkap kereta untuk bertanya tentang jalan alternatif, petugas-petugas tersebut masih lagi senyum dan menjawab dengan amat sopan. Melihat kesenyuman di muka mereka yang basah dan betapa banyak kerja-kerja pemulihan yang perlu dilakukan, Tsem Rinpoche tersentuh hati dan ingin membeli makanan ringan dan minuman panas untuk mereka. Apa yang tertonjol dan paling penting ialah walaupun bekerja keras di bawah hujan, mereka masih memberikan senyum. Ini amat menyentuh hati Rinpoche. Di bawah adalah video yang dirakam Rinpoche semalam.

Kejadian semalam akan membantu Kechara di kawasan ini buat masa akan datang. Tsem Rinpoche berkata bahawa beliau akan terus berusaha pada masa akan datang dan selalu bersedia untuk memberi khidmat kepada masyarakat.

Disini disertakan gambar dari semalam.
Jikalau anda ingin bersosial media, anda boleh berbuat demikian secara bertimbang rasa.

Update 13 November 2015 

 

Because of the heavy rains, there was a major landslide on November 11, 2015 along our Karak Highway. The authorities such as police, RELA, Bentong TNB and other depts have been working overtime. Even the press were parked there on-site to report up-to-date news. The highways after two days are still closed but the authorities are working very hard to clear the debris, make repairs and get everything back to normal. They have been up for days and nights and we are very appreciative of their efforts. Because of the landslide, it has disrupted the traffic for thousands of cars who cannot get home, school or to work. Taking alternative routes causes extra 4-5 hours in travelling time. I messaged the wonderful Ms Su Ming and her sincere team to please bring food and drinks to them and they sprung into action immediately! Thank you!

We thank the authorities and highway volunteers very much so Kechara has gone out today with 120 packets of food and drinks to the authorities.

Our team today consist of:
1. William Chua
2. Chuah Su Ming
3. Karen Chong
4. Wee Sock Wan
5. Jerry Sito
6. Wylfred Ng
7. Valentina Suhendra
8. Vinnie Tan
9. Billy Ng
10. Carmen Koo

Our hardworking and caring Kechara team got up early to arrange the food and drive out to public restricted areas to deliver the food with the help of the friendly police. We like to thank our police force for helping us to get to potentially dangerous areas to send some appreciation with our food. The extremely dangerous areas, the food was passed on to them via the officials there. We thank the officials for their cooperation in our efforts and all their works.

Please see the following pictures of the food and drinks delivered to our hardworking authorities this day November 13, 2015.

I thank my fellow Kechara people for their hard work and I thank humbly our authorities for working so hard.

Sincerely,
Tsem Rinpoche

  **************************

由于滂沱大雨,2015年11月11日在加叻大道发生了土崩事故。有关当局如警察、志愿警队(RELA)、文冬电力局和其它政府部门纷纷加班投入紧急救援工作。媒体也驻守在灾区为公众提供最新消息。事故发生至今已经两天了,大道仍然还是关闭,有关当局还在加紧抢救工作,忙着清理现场的泥沼以便更快地让大道能够通车。工作人员们不分昼夜进行抢救工作的精神让我们非常地感动。这起土崩事故影响了上千的汽车用户,许多人因此不能回家、上学或工作。他们必须绕道而行,比起原来的路程多出了4-5个小时。我发了短讯给诗明和她的团队,请他们给工作人员们送食物和饮料,他们立即行动做出了妥善的安排。

我们很感谢有关当局和大道义工们所以今天克切拉带了120份的食物和饮料分发给大家。参加这次行动的有:
1 伟南
2 诗明
3 君慧
4 淑婉
5 帼耀
6 明川
7 Valentina Suhendra
8 馨蔚
9 世优
10 嘉文

这一群勤快又充满爱心的克切拉团队一大早就把食物和饮料准备好然后在警方人员的护送下开车到灾难现场给工作人员们送食物。我们非常感谢警方人员给予的协助,带领我们到限制区去,由于这里还是属于非安全区,所以我们把食物交给在这里负责人再由他们把食物发给他们的队员。

这里有一些我们在2015年11月13日分发食物和饮料给工作人员的照片。

在这里我很感谢我的克切拉团队,也由衷地感谢有关当局不分昼夜的工作精神。

詹杜固仁波切 合十

   ************************** 

Disebabkan oleh hujan lebat baru baru ini, kejadian tanah runtuh telah berlaku di Lebuhraya Karak pada 11hb November 2015. Sejak daripada itu, pihak-pihak berkuasa seperti polis, RELA dan TNB Bentong telah berkerja tanpa henti untuk memulihkan keadaan. Pihak media juga bersedia di kawasan tanah runtuh untuk melaporkan berita terbaru. Pada masa sekarang, lebuhraya masih ditutup walaupun dua hari telah berlalu selepas kejadian tanah runtuh. Pihak berkuasa masih lagi berkerja bertungkus lumus untuk membersih dan membaik pulih jalan raya. Kami berasa amat berterima kasih dan menghargai usaha mereka bekerja tanpa mengira waktu untuk membaik pulih lebuhraya.

Kejadian tanah runtuh tersebut telah menyebabkan trafik tergendala. Ramai telah terjejas dan menghadapi kesukaran untuk pulang rumah, pergi berkerja atau ke sekolah. Sebahagian orang terpaksa mengguna jalan alternatif yang mengambil masa 4 atau 5 jam lebih dari waktu perjalanan asal untuk sampai ke destinasi mereka untuk membawa makanan dan minuman kepada pihak-pihak yang berkerja untuk memulihkan lebuhraya. Cik Su Ming dan rakannya bertindak serta-merta untuk menghantar makanan dan minuman kepada pihak berkuasa.

Usaha dari kami, pihak Kechara telah menghantar 120 bungkus makanan dan minuman untuk menyampaikan penghargaan kami kepada pihak berkuasa dan sukarelawan yang bekerja untuk memulihkan lebuhraya.

Pasukan kami terdiri daripada 10 orang muda iaitu:
1. William Chua
2. Chuah Su Ming
3. Karen Chong
4. Wee Sock Wan
5. Jerry Sito
6. Wylfred Ng
7. Valentina Suhendra
8. Vinnie Tan
9. Billy Ng
10. Carmen Koo

Pasukan dari Kechara yang rajin dan berhemah telah menyediakan makanan sejak awal pagi tadi dan menuju ke kawasan kejadian dengan bantuan dari pihak polis yang mesra membantu. Kami berasa amat berterima kasih kepada anggota polis yang membantu kami untuk menghantar makanan ke kawasan yang berisiko tinggi. Manakala pihak berkuasa telah membantu kami untuk menghantar makanan kepada pekerja yang berkerja di kawasan yang amat merbahaya. Kami berasa amat berterima kasih kepada pihak berkuasa yang berkerjasama dengan kami untuk menjayakan usaha kami.

Sila merujuk kepada gambar berikut untuk mengetahui lebih banyak tentang usaha kami untuk menghantar makanan kepada pihak berkuasa pada hari ini, bertarikh 13hb November 2015.
Saya berterima kasih kepada ahli Kechara, dan juga pihak berkuasa yang berkerja keras untuk memulihkan lebuhraya.

Yang ikhlas,
Tsem Rinpoche

We gave out 120 packets of a mixture of Chinese and Kampung fried rice which were kindly prepared by a halal restaurant. There were also 72 bottles of ice cold 100plus, 60 bottles of water and 120 packets of biscuits.

 **************************

Just a thought:

From meditational/yidam retreats (merit/purifications), sadhanas daily (altering projections), holding our vows (discipline/ethics/integrity), pushing past comfort zones till it’s natural (consistency due to discipline) and working on our minds to focus on positive ‘projections’ daily will give rise to a mind that spontaneously overcomes laziness, miserliness, hatred and pain to focus out and help others. Helping others when encumbered with me, me, me attitude is VERY DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE. When by sadhana, retreats, reflections, holding vows and simply pushing oneself out of the comfort zones DAILY, then helping others and focusing out becomes spontaneous, easy and without difficulties. This is a better direction to go then narcissism or poor  me attitudes or attitudes that project barriers and limits on ourselves that don’t exist. What was seen as effort and work become easy as breathing when we practice daily…that is the beauty. We can wake up each day practicing towards a better self then reinforcing a unhealthy self. Our narcissistic focus on ourselves is replaced with altruistic concern/action for others. Even if we are not happy fully, we make others happy. Whereas prior to this we ourselves are not happy and we make everyone around us unhappy too. This is not hard and the FIRST step is daily reaching beyond our comfort zones till we are not reaching beyond anymore, but we step into it. Comfort zones are trained and reinforced through the years. Just stop the training and reinforcements. Be serious about this…..

Tsem Rinpoche

 

只是一个想法:

投入禅修/本尊闭关(积德/净业)、每日仪轨(调整投射)、持戒(纪律/道德/信用)、跨越舒适地带直到它变得自然(因纪律而产生的持续性),以及每天修心并让

它专注于正面的“投射”上,能使我们的心识自然地对抗懒惰、悭吝、嗔怒和痛苦,并把焦点转向外方来协助他人。背负着一个巨大的“我”来帮助别人是很困难和不可能的。每天投入仪轨、闭关、反思、持戒和督促自己跨越舒适地带,能让我们把“助人和焦点向外”这件事变得自然、容易和毫无难处。比起自恋、自怜或“无中生有”地自我设限的态度,这是一个更好的方向。每天重复的练习,将使我们把原本视为耗力的工作变得如同呼吸般容易……这就是其美丽之处。每天醒来的时候,与其去强化那个不健康的自己,不如训练自己成为一个更好的人。我们将把对自己的自恋式关注,转换成对他人的利他关怀和行动。即便我们并不全然快乐,我们也可以让别人快乐。反观在这之前的我们,往往在自己不快乐的时候,也使得周围的每一个人都不快乐。这并不困难,第一步就是每天都跨越我们的舒适地带,直到我们站在其上方,不需要再跨越它为止。舒适地带是我们多年的训练和强化下的成果。我们只需要停止再训练和强化它。请严肃看待这件事……。

    We really appreciate , workers and volunteers that on duty and act fast to manage the traffic and clearing the road on time . Everyone of them were working under rain and always happy .. We must respect the official and government

    It’s was really a great honoured and opportunity to be with Tsem Rinpoche who initiated to give hot drinks and snacks for those hardworking people. Rinpoche has doing this for many many years to reach out to people who needed help..

  2. Lew on Nov 29, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    When disaster happens, there are many workers from different authorities working together to fix the situation. Many a times, the team working on site are “forgotten”, and sometimes they are scolded by the public for matters which are not of their fault.

    I can see that many blame the authorities on social media, that they didn’t do their job in acting in time to direct traffic, etc. However, they are just working based on the direction from the top, and it is really not their fault. Just ask ourselves, given a choice, would we prefer to sleep comfortably at home? Or work under the heavy monsoon rain, to clear the road and direct traffic?

    What H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche instructed His students, bring appreciation to workers whom usually forget. It is really heart warming this act of kindness is carried out!

  3. Kb thapa on Nov 29, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    Rinpoche always taught us compassion through action. Rinpoche’s care for those hardworking people..We at Kechara always wish our best to our fellow citizens and we will endeavor to support whenever we can. We thank the authorities for their quick response to this disaster that has affected thousands..

  4. Lin Mun on Nov 29, 2015 at 7:26 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara team for always be there when in need.

    Your actions has inspire us to always care and be ready to help those in needs no matter who they are, their background religion or race.

    All the road workers, policemen and volunteers have to work under the rain, in difficult situation and for long hours just so to clear the road for everyone’s convenient. We should always be grateful and show our appreciation for their hard work and commitment. The thought and action is so important as we always tend to think that it is their job and hence do not take much care.

    We as part of the society should be responsible and help reduce the burden in times like this. Rinpoche’ action and kindness showed to all the workers that they are not alone and we being part of the community acknowledge their dedication.

    Thanks again for sharing this blog which is a good reminder for all of us.

  5. Jason on Nov 26, 2015 at 12:12 am

    谢谢仁波切和一班志工们的付出。仁波切以身作则让我们更需要知道取自社会,用于社会。要放下自我去帮助有需要的人。虽然我们不能献身參于这次救灾行动但是我们还是可以在金钱上的资助。这也是可以帮我们累积功德。

  6. Ng Jesvin on Nov 25, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    Rinpoche’s loving kindness and actions always inspire me, give me a motivation to continue my spiritual practice. Many of us can perform a good speech, fantastic idea, beautiful words and etc when communicating with others in our daily life. But how many of us can walk the talk? By following Rinpoche’s blog I learn a lot. With hand folded, thank you Tsem Rinpoche.

    • NgJesvin on Nov 25, 2015 at 7:40 pm

      Saya memang terharu apabila melihat Rinpoche yang begitu mengambil berat terhadap pasukan penyelamat dan pasukan kawalan di Bentong pada malam tragedi itu. Rinpoche yang bersifat baik hari tanpa mengira warna kulit, agama, bahasa dan latar belakang setiap ahli dalam pasukan penyelamat dan pasukan kawalan. Justerunya, saya juga berasa amat bangga dengan pelajar-pelajar Rinpoche yang sanggup mengorbankan masa dan tenaga tanpa mengenal penat dan waktu dengan rela hati menghantar makanan dan minuman untuk pasukan penyelamat dan pengawal. Kita sepatutnya mencontohi tindakan Rinpoche dan pelajar-pelajar beliau iaitu sentiasa sedia menyediakan bantuan kepada pihak yang memerlukan. Di samping itu, kita perlulah saling menyayangi antara satu sama lain tanpa mengira agama, latar belakang dan warna kulit begitu juga dengan segala makhluk hidup di persekitaran kita. Akhirnya, kita sepatutnya peka terhadap apa yang berlaku di persekitaran kita agar keharmonian dapat kekal selama-lamanya.Bak kata pepatah “yang baik dijadikan teladan, yang buruk dijadikan sempadan”.

  7. Paul Yap on Nov 24, 2015 at 11:58 pm

    often, we thinks that someone should keep the public road clean and clear the path for us. We have paid taxes, hence someone should do it for us. This is not the case when Rinpoche saw the police man and government authorities working under the rain clearing landslide hoping the highway will resume operation asap. This group of hard working people is usually neglected by most of us. A simple cup of hot coffee will really make their day happy and let them felt appreciated. It is really touching, we can practise kindness and compassion anywhere anytime, especially to people we don’t know.

  8. Julien Roth on Nov 24, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    Rinpoche’s efforts are always inspirational for me. Whenever i read about the things Rinpoche does for others, i ask myself ‘what am i doing for others? what can i do for other?’. Rinpoche is really an icon of compassion. Nobody else would have given out food and drinks like this to these people. In fact, most people wouldn’t even realise that these people need food and drinks, or that they are out in the cold rain. Most people would just carry on with their lives, thank goodness Rinpoche is not like this.

    It really takes a high level of awareness to realise these peoples needs. And i feel like Rinpoche does have this level of awareness. But it takes more than awareness to take action. Rinpoche was determined and went out of this way to personally deliver the food and drinks to these peoples. Rinpoche could have easily asked others to deliver the food and drinks for him, but no, Rinpoche did it himself. This shows real kindness.

    Imagine if all the people in the world were like Rinpoche. Imagine how peaceful the world would be then. Too bad it will never be like that. But that shouldn’t stop us from trying to achieve that. I hope Rinpoches actions in this blog post has inspired others like how it has inspired me.

  9. Pastor Adeline on Nov 24, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    文冬是克切拉禪修林的所在地,也是克切拉的家。土石流那段期間,看到各單位工作人員不管日曬雨淋,不惜勞苦,竭盡所能為大眾,特別是文冬居民做一切,甚感欣慰。這些工作人員不為自己,也不為錢財,只為大家的安全而奉獻,至今在文冬一帶處處可見。

    尊貴的上師第廿五世詹杜固仁波切與學生們為感激工作人員的努力,在土石流的那一晚,給他們送上熱騰騰的飲料和乾糧。對許多人來說,這可能微不足道,但是我們為工作人員送上暖暖的心意。

    謝謝你們為大眾服務!

  10. Edwin Tan on Nov 24, 2015 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you for the updates.

    Rinpoche is always so kind and giving.

    I had that when the landslide occurred, Rinpoche was actually going for a treatment for his terrible back ache. Because of the incident, Rinpoche returned to Bentong and decided to pack food and hot drinks for those hard working government officials and volunteers, ignoring his own pain.

    Such acts can only be seen coming from Rinpoche as his love and compassion isn’t something we lay people can comprehend. I have witnessed on many accounts great acts by Rinpoche.

    Being around such a great Guru teaches us to think out and bigger in times of crises or disasters, teaches us compassion and equality, and importantly… it is always not about us, but the community we live in.

    Thank you.

  11. Pastor Shin on Nov 21, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    I was very fortunate to have been there when Rinpoche wanted the Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) team to go distribute hot coffee and snacks. Wonderful to be able to do something and to show appreciation for those who work hard for the society and welfare of others.

    One thing being around the Guru is that your mind/ action/ activity is always geared towards that of serving others because the Guru always abides in that type of attitude and thinking. Rinpoche was on the way to Kuala Lumpur when the road closure happened. Rinpoche himself was “trapped” for nearly 2 hours in the rain/ traffic, but instead of complaining or blaming anyone or anything, Rinpoche was just being present and observe what was happening.

    Rinpoche has gastric issue, so the attendants always pack some snacks like biscuits etc when Rinpoche travels. When we met up with Rinpoche, I found out that Rinpoche has given away all his snacks to the workers/ officers on duty on the highway before turning back to Bentong town to meet us and get more supplies to give away to more workers/ officers. Those who have been around Rinpoche for a while will know that Rinpoche always make sure no one is hungry, and that any being (including animals) around Rinpoche will always benefit, at the very least, go away with a full stomach

    Bodhisattvas works solely for the benefit of others without wanting anything in return. A lot of time, Rinpoche will help people “anonymously”. However, as Kechara is new and establishing ourself in this community, it is important to build a good relationship with our neighbour’s and fellow Bentong folks. Hence, Rinpoche reminded us to share with the workers and officers who we are, where we are from, so that they know that Kechara is here to stay and that we will do our best to support the local community, especially in the time of need.

    I’m glad that the second group of Kecharians went out to distribute more food and drinks to the workers & officers, especially those who have been working on the actual landslide site and surrounding area. We sometimes take things for granted, especially the kindness of others, in this case, the workers and officers who worked day and night, extra- overtime to fix/ clear the roads, and to stay on duty on certain spots to direct traffic and to inform the public with a smile that the road was blocked. It is my Guru’s kindness that I was reminded to show gratitude to these people, and I am glad that with a small token in the form of hot coffee and a little snacks, these hardworking people know that they are being appreciated.

  12. Li Kheng on Nov 21, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    When disaster strike, we tend to want to know when the repairs will be done…When we can get on with life-as-usual.

    Not for Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. He sees those who are forgotten and unseen.
    During the Karak Highway landslide, rinpoche saw the hard working heroes who tried to redirect people to safety under the rain and in the darkness.
    Personally going to get hot drinks and food to offer some warmth and kindness to them.

    This is inspiration in action in simple humanly scenarios.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara Forest Retreat team!

  13. Louise Lee on Nov 21, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    谢谢胜彪讲法师的分享。

    克切拉团队与仁波切慈悲加于行动是我们的学习态度。

    大家都有慈悲的一颗心,我们必须要加上行动才会帮助到有需要的每一位。

    还记得去年烟霾来到我们马来半岛的时候, 仁波切也有带着学生还有 Kechara Soup Kitchen 到吉隆玻市区去拍口罩。

  14. William Chua on Nov 21, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    A small gesture goes a long way to appreciate the hardworking people whose job is to serve the public and quickly clear the inconveniences. A way to say thank you and appreciate them.

  15. Valentina Suhendra on Nov 21, 2015 at 2:08 am

    Five things that I learned from the blog post:
    • I learned that Rinpoche is interested in the welfare of everyone – not only his students
    • The volunteers and people who work hard must be cared for, not only the victims
    • Compassion has no barrier of race and backgrounds
    • People in general are kindhearted
    • Rinpoche set an example for me to help those in need.

  16. jp on Nov 20, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    Supporting others who are less fortunate and those who work tirelessly for others are actions of compassion which ate much needed nowadays. There are many unsung heros who work quietly behind the scenes and are often not noticed or taken for granted.

    If we believe in compassion, we should also give them moral support and show them our gratitude. Tsem Rinpoche lead a few of his students to show his appreciation to all the people who worked tirelessly throughout the night after the massive landslide. Without all their hard work and dedication, the highway would not be open by now.

    All of us play a part on this planet. Regardless of our differences, it’s best to embrace the differences and coexist in peace and harmony. Showing appreciation and gratitude is one of the best ways to promote this.

  17. Pastor Jay Jae on Nov 19, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    Sering kali apabila bencana alam melanda, kita akan terkejut dan tidak tahu macam mana hendak menerima berita buruk sebegini. Kakitangan awam macam pegawai lebuhraya dan anggota polis amat prihati dalam membantu mengawal keadaan tanah runtuh di lebuhraya karak. Kerja mereka yang tidak ada waktu kerja tetap ini amat mengharukan saya dan membanggakan saya sebagai warganegara Malaysia.

    Saya ingin mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada semua pekerja dan pegawai yang terlibat membantu meringankan beban dan membersihkan kesan tanah runtuh di Lebuhraya Karak buat kami.

    Mengikut jejak langkah tok Guru kami Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche, kita berbangga dapat memberikan makanan ringan dan minuman bersama semangat kepada wira wira bencana alam ini.

  18. Pastor Patsy on Nov 19, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    Rinpoche always lead by example and in time of this natural disaster, Rinpoche again taught us compassion through action. Rinpoche’s care for those hardworking government workers braving the rain to clear the landslide is very heartwarming. Thank you, Rinpoche and those involved for bringing food, hot drinks and cheers to those hardworking unsung heroes.

  19. freon on Nov 17, 2015 at 12:27 am

    Dear Nicholas and Pastor Seng Piow,

    Thank you for sharing this warmth article in Rinpoche’s blog.

    Rinpoche show care and love to people despite their religion, skin color etc. The workers working hard chasing the time to release the roadblock, they have no one even care for their welfare. People are only concern on when the road will be released. These are the group of people we often neglected.

    Rinpoche show us the true Bodhisattva- foods are carefully select (warm food and hot drinks), and Rinpoche provide for the workers and reporters without hoping on any return.

    With Rinpoche’s action, this got we to think more to other, they silently do their work and help maintain the environment to be clean. E.g the people who clean the rubbish, the people who cut the road side glass, who build the LRT . They did their work silently and many time, not only people neglected them but also look down on them. But, without them, who will do for us. I thanks them from bottom of my heart and offer my prayer for their safety and well-beings always.

    Other than that,
    Kecharian – Su Ming and team working very fast and effective. They have carried out Rinpoche’s instruction well and do it with integrity. It is important to work hard, integrity so that Rinpoche’s work which is to benefit the sentient beings will be carry out with effective and fast.

    Thank you again Rinpoche , Nicholas, Pastor Seng Piow , Su Ming and team

    With Folded hand,
    Freon

  20. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 16, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness, compassion and your understanding of the difficult situation faced by the local authorities, officers and workers to clear up the road under the cold rain during the land slide incident. The warmth and care given by Rinpoche can be felt by all of us through the pictures shared out in this posting. The warm coffee and halal food offered to the government officers and workers there can instill the kindness, generosity and care into their mind stream, that can be further spread out to their families, friends and colleagues when they are back to their normal routines. A more caring society can eventually lead to world peace, which we need the most at this point of time.

    Many thanks to Kecharians who have gone around the places to buy warm coffee and snacks for distribution at the affected land slides area. While most of us were staying at home comfortably, they have to drive around at night, walked for multiple steps on the muddy road and staying up late until 2 am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  21. Lucas Roth on Nov 16, 2015 at 1:37 am

    This blog post just reminds me that Rinpoche continues to do good with Kechara and the people around him for the people around him and other people as well. He sets the right example and always cares for others and sees things others do not see in things and people. He will continue to spread the Dharma and the right things in this world and I am very lucky to have met him in my lifetime.

    I have learned that those people that seem invisible and help us so much. The people that are in the background helping us with jobs that we do not think is very highly rated, those people are very important too, just like us. They are people too, if I can be a vegetarian for equality for lives, I can see why these people are just like us and how they feel and have livelihoods too. Just like us.

    Thank you for sharing this Rinpoche and I hope that you can continue to benefit more and more lives in this world. Thank you Rinpoche for touching our lives with the Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche.

  22. Lilyn Tan on Nov 15, 2015 at 10:28 pm

    Rinpoche always put others before himself, Rinpoche never cease to care for anyone including animals. Rinpoche’s compassion, kindness, generosity and wanting to serve others is spontaneous and never dwindle. Thank you Rinpoche for this precious life lessons. Thank you KFR & Gift Team for your fast respond to Rinpoche’s call. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for this wonderful write up and pictures.

    A big thank you to The Highway authorities, RELA, Police, JKR & TNB who have been working very hard in the rain to clear the landslide debris and major repairs. Your selfless commitments and sacrifices to ensure public safety is great appreciated and admired.

    With folded hands,
    Lilyn Tan

    Thank you Rinpoche and the teams action immediately to show cares to others. It is really inspiring as make me think that we do can help in whatever situation to show cares, concern and the kindness to others is without any agenda regardless of races and religion.

  25. Sock Wan on Nov 14, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    How Rinpoche teaches us compassion is by doing it himself. This has happened many times not just to the people Rinpoche knows but also unsung heroes like these.

    I also used to think the workers ‘should’ do it because they are paid to do it, nothing amazing about that. But what Rinpoche has highlighted to us is that these people even though work under a very unfavourable condition, they are still working wholeheartedly without complaining. Who does not like to be appreciated? By showing a little bit of appreciation, it will definitely brighten up people’s life, bring out the positive energy and bring people in the community closer and also safer.

    The next time when you see a garbage car passes by your house, just say thank you to them ;p

  26. May Ong on Nov 13, 2015 at 11:49 pm

    Sensing the urgency of the rain and landslide situation, Tsem Rinpoche does not waste time but got up instantly to find ways to help immediately.

    感谢上师詹杜固仁波切在加叻大道和老文冬路(文冬至鹅麦)的土崩和洪水出事地方对文冬镇周围的工作者提供热咖啡和小吃。仁波切终是以身做责的为社群献上照顾与关怀,不论白天或黑夜,不分宗族,仁波切就是秉着佛陀的舍己为人精神为他人付出,仁波切还会带领弟子一起参与以行动去实践佛陀教诲。

    在恶劣的环境为他人送上热腾腾的咖啡和关怀是犹如一颗闪亮的星星照亮整个大地,我们不应该抹杀他人默默耕耘的精神,这就是仁波切总会在发生如此不幸事件/灾难时伸出援手。这是我学习到上师的教诲,如果要找到自己内在的快乐那么我们应该要先让他人快乐,那么我们自然就会快乐,那是因果循环。

    我们都知道要为他人付出是何等的重要,但是又有多少人会第一时间伸出暖手呢??我们应该要从心识转化,把我们一直深藏在内心深处的“我”斩除,时时刻刻为他人着想是跳出舒适地带的首要条件。

    慈悲心并不是挂在嘴里说说而已,而是要以行动实践。我非常感恩能够跟随慈悲的詹杜固仁波的步伐去实践上师的教诲。在这几年里我在学佛的道路上亲睹上师给予他人的慰问与鼓励从没有间断过,自己本身也受惠良多。

    仁波切在此事件中,对有些弟子困在此事件中不间断的献上慰问与关怀,知道确保弟子安全的到达目的地为止。仁波切还会为他们做祈愿和加持,好让他们可以安全和不受任何的伤害。

    感谢上师的身教让我学习帮助他人不应该多加顾虑,不应该求回报,慈悲与慷慨的付出必定会得到永恒的快乐。

  29. Sarah on Nov 13, 2015 at 5:37 pm

    Thank you for the pictures and updates. Today, a group of Tsem Rinpoche’s students went to distribute food and drinks again to the policemen and workers on duty at the area affected by the landslide. I’m very touched by their compassion and I’m sure the highway authorities and workers also appreciate very much their kind gesture. When there are natural disasters and during difficult times, people should show care and concern for others. This will break down a lot of barriers and create a kind and caring society.

  30. Uncle Eddie on Nov 13, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    An action in reality truly speaks louder than a thousand words. That’s what our Guru of wisdom and compassion is showing us kecharians to see and learn. Thank you Rinpoche, for a meaningful lesson well learnt by us all. Deeply grateful and happy to have such caring Guru like you!

  31. tong sun sun on Nov 13, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    感恩上师仁波切的关爱和慈悲,同时也让弟子们可以有个可贵的经验从中学习,让大家可以有读万卷书不如行完里路的经验。

  32. Phoebe Yong on Nov 13, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    谢谢仁波切的慈悲和爱心。

    以前我都会觉得这些都是当局者的责任,抱着理所当然的心态他们是应该为人民服务的。但是,透过仁波切这次派食物的行动,我非常的感动。因为仁波切是如此的慈悲,他对在现场的工作人员的关心和爱心是大公无私的,不分种族,不分宗教,唯一关切的是他们温饱。与此同时,仁波切也向他们表达谢意。仁波切无时无刻都在利益众生。

    谢谢仁波切为我们上了宝贵的一课。我们应该对有关当局人员和志愿团体为我们所作出的贡献心存感激和感恩。我在此向他们竖起无比的敬意,谢谢他们!

  33. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Nov 13, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    The police, government officers (especially from the Public Works Department), volunteer workers such as RELA, highway employees, and road workers … This is the group of people , be they the police or the Public Works Department officers as well as the high way employees and road workers , whom we rarely pay attention to . Instead, more often than not, they are the subjects of our criticism and even unkind remarks.

    Last night in pelting rain and in the cold , without umbrellas, they were controlling traffic or clearing away the fallen trees or the debris left by the huge landslide. They did all this and they still wore a smile on their faces and continued to be pleasant and polite to everyone.

    When he saw all this, Tsem Rinpoche was touched to the core of his being. He quickly rounded up a team of caring Kecharians. Together they got hot drinks and food and went back to them and distributed this to them, bringing much needed cheer to them.

    Tsem Rinpoche always has this dynamic way of showing compassion in action, and of bringing out the best in people who saw and read about this and were, in turn, touched to the point of bringing tears and a warm sensation to their hearts, as well as the welling of a determination to emulate him..

    Thank you Rinpoche, for your fine example. Thank you for galvanising a group of Kecharians to work hand in hand with you to bring cheer to these unsung heroes.

    Rinpoche always show gratitude and appreciation to people who work selflessly for the communities.Last night Rinpoche went out with some of His students to the massive landslide areas in Bentong, He saw the traffic officers, workers from various government departments and volunteers working so hard under heavy rain, they all went and bought foods and hot drinks for all the workers, all the workers received their snacks with a smile on their faces and a little surprise too. To me i always feel that Rinpoche is very compassionate towards people who have to work in harsh condition. Thank you for sharing this post to remind us to be kind and caring to all regardless of race and religions.

  35. Chris Chong on Nov 13, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This blog post is very inspiring. This clearly shows that compassion knows no boundaries.

    Such action such as delivering food and drinks as an act of appreciation to the workers who worked tirelessly throught the night at a natural disaster scene is very rare in Malaysian. I’m sure many Malaysian would like to do the same but did not maybe because they are afraid of what others will think of them. I know I would think the same way.

    Rinpoche’s action shows that we need to come out of our comfort zone to show compassion to those who needed it. We need to focus less on ‘I’ and think about others more.

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a valuable lesson.

    With folded hands,
    Chris

    昨晚的一场大雨,造成加叻大道土崩,交通大阻塞,切断了来往的道路,各单位的救援人员馬上出动到事發现场救助,包括了我们敬爱及慈悲的上师,知道,認同及了解他们的付出及辛勞,推己及人,吩咐弟子馬上出动去購買熱饮及食物送上給在现场的工作人员,师父本身也跟随給于慰问和鼓励。我相信在現㘯的人员当手中接过那一杯温熱的咖啡及食物时,一股䁔流已直透心房。感恩上师以身示教,誏我们明白爱及慈悲可以不分肤色,若人人都能如此,人間既天堂。

  38. Katherine Ng on Nov 13, 2015 at 12:51 pm

    谢谢仁波切的慈悲心,谢谢仁波切对大家的关爱。谢谢所有的赈灾人员。在这次的意外事件里仁波切以身作则教导了我们对待任何人都要有慷慨,大方之心,打开心房用欢喜心去帮助所有的有情众生。谢谢仁波切的教导。

  39. Jill Yam on Nov 13, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    Compassion Conquers All. And H. E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche led by example.
    While most are not aware of what’s happening along Karak Highway and some may be in the comfort of their home, Rinpoche and few of his students just sprung into action to help those workers working there under the rain.
    Hot drinks and food was distributed to them and in sure it touches their hearts.
    Rinpoche himself walk around and gave food to them till early in the morning.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the kindness shown.

  40. Chon Kong on Nov 13, 2015 at 11:54 am

    山泥傾瀉,破壞力非常大,所幸沒有造成人員傷亡。謝謝仁波切和弟子們給漏夜進行救災工作的所有單位人員,獻上關懷,熱咖啡☕️和食物,雪中送炭的舉動,我非常感動。師父常常說別把’我’看得非常大,這樣會讓自己帶來很多不快樂。反之應該把心打開,幫助和關心週邊的人,用快樂和愛心幫助他們。謝謝師父的慈悲,以身作則把愛心散播給努力救災的所有人。這是我要學習,讓後實踐的事。 Chon Kong

  41. Yoke Chim Yap on Nov 13, 2015 at 10:37 am

    (只是一个想法)
    Dear Rinpoche : 感恩上师的提醒与慈爱,的确,凡是人都有情性(一些人除外)我本身也是如此,所以要有内心的另一个我 (意識?)来督促我。就像每日仪轨,有时累了,夜了。就想偷懒不做,但内在的我会提醒説:不可以!結果就做了,就如上师您所说,我们不督促自己的话,就会一直想停留在那个舒适地带,跨不出去.長久如此,就是原地踏步,是安全,舒适,但不能给自己短短的人生带来助益,也可能也没有去利益他人。当無常来臨的那一刻,也许会有遗憾!感恩上师,弟子会銘记於心。

  42. MartinC on Nov 13, 2015 at 7:02 am

    Doing something for the people in our community is only common courtesy and simple gratitude. These are the people whose jobs are to keep us safe and the system running smoothly and frankly, they don’t earn a lot of money doing this. So, I am very glad to read this post. I am moved to see that as people scrambled to get out of the ground zero, the rain and sludge, Rinpoche was leading a team of Kecharians into it. I am very sure those working hard to clean up the landslide and control traffic appreciate the effort. Many looked pleasantly surprised.

    However, it should be noted that it is one of Tsem Rinpoche’s character trait to notice the people many do not see or even of they did, would not give a second thought to – our domestic help, the foreign workers, the security guards, the council workers, the road cleaners, the homeless and the poor.

    I also occurred to me that as residents of Kechara Forest Retreat, we should no longer think of ourselves as merely visiting Bentong because of KFR. We should really think of Bentong as our home now. Bentong has been very kind to us all.

    Thank you very much for your tremendous show of kindness and gratitude Rinpoche and the Kecharians who were there with Rinpoche.

  43. Albert on Nov 13, 2015 at 3:02 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and the kind act yesterday in Bentong. Giving food and drinks to other people may be something very small, but to the receiver, it gives them a huge impact.

    Rinpoche always show us how to be a kind people, now whenever I’m on the street, when seeing someone come asking for money, I will also buy some food for them because most of the time they look hungry and their hand is shivering, a packet of rice means a lot to them, this is something I will not do previously.

    Normally during incident like this, people will immediately move away and stay far away to keep themselves safe, but Rinpoche and team go out to serve food and drinks to the people, same as others, I do wish I’m there too yesterday. But I also shall keep this in mind that in future, whenever there are situation like this, I shall not stay away but to go in to help, not to do what they do, but at least serve them food or drinks for them to rejuvenate so they can continue to work to help others like what Rinpoche and team do yesterday.

    Thank you Rinpoche

    *************************************************************

    敬爱的詹杜固仁波切,

    谢谢您的分享和昨天在文冬的善行。送食物和饮品给他人可能只是不起眼的小事,但是对于那些受惠者来说,却有很深刻的影响。

    仁波切时常向我们示范如何做个慷慨的人,现在当在街上有人过来行乞,我都会买食物给他们,因为大部分时候,我看到他们都是在挨饿和双手不断在颤抖,一包饭对于他们来说却是意义重大,这些都是以前我不会去做的事。

    通常在发生这些突发事件时,人们都会选择避难去,以保自身安全,但是仁波切却恰恰相反,仁波切和您的助理们会驱往现场,为那些工作人员们送食物和饮用水。跟其他人一样,我也希望自己昨天我能在场帮忙,但是我会把这经验记在脑海里,将来若是有相同的情况发生,我不会回避,反之,我会上前去帮忙。我并不是去做他们所执行的任务,而是从旁提供他们食物和饮用水,让他们能恢复体力继续本身帮助他人的工作,就像仁波切和您的助理们昨天所做的一切一样。

    谢谢仁波切。

    *************************************************************

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Terima kasih Rinpoche untuk tindakan yang baik dan berbagi di Bentong semalam. Memberikan makanan dan minuman bagi orang lain mungkin adalah sesuatu yang sangat kecil, tetapi bagi yang menerima, mereka memiliki makna yang amat besar.

    Rinpoche selalu menunjukan kepada kami bagaimana menjadi orang yang baik, sekarang, bilamana saya di luar, dan melihat seseorang meminta wang, saya juga akan membelikan mereka makanan. Karena kebanyakan dari mereka terlihat lapar dan tangan mereka bergetar, sebungkus nasi bermakna besar bagi mereka. Ini adalah hal yang tidak akan saya lakukan sebelumnya.

    Biasanya pada kejadian seperti ini, orang lain akan segera menjauhkan diri dan menjaga keselamatan mereka, tetapi Rinpoche dan pembantu pergi untuk memberikan makanan kepada orang lain. Sama seperti yang lain, saya juga berharap saya ada di sana semalam, tetapi saya juga akan selalu mengingat hal ini di masa yang akan datang. Bilamana ada situasi seperti ini, saya tidak akan menjauhkan diri tetapi pergi untuk menolong, bukannya untuk meniru apa yang mereka lakukan, tetapi setidaknya memberikan mereka makanan dan minuman untuk menyegarkan kembali sehingga mereka boleh terus menolong orang lain seperti yang dilakukan Rinpoche dan pembantu semalam.

    Terima kasih Rinpoche.

  44. Datuk May on Nov 13, 2015 at 1:35 am

    There were some students of HE the 25th Tsem Rinpoche who were stuck at this landslide traffic congestion and unable to reach home to Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Rinpoche was very worried for their safety and while continuously questioning and calling them to ensure they are fine, it is so very amazing that Rinpoche still has the big heart and capacity to think of all the rescue workers at the landslide site to go in the heavy rain to buy food and drinks.

    From the happy faces, the food and drinks were very welcomed, but more than that the rescue workers of this unfortunate incident were very happy to realise that some one cared enough to show appreciation to their work, in the rain and wet and cold conditions.

    I rejoice for the workers and very grateful that Rinpoche showed this wonderful act of appreciation which is kindness at its best form, for us, His students to learn from.

  45. Pastor Yek Yee on Nov 13, 2015 at 12:55 am

    六年前,曾经有人问过我,为什麽无端端跑去学佛了,还跟了一个藏传师父,靠得住的吗?那也难怪,那时没有多少懂藏传佛教是甚麽来的。。。也没有人听过詹杜固仁波切是谁来的?克切拉这个名字更是少之又少人听闻。。。

    如今,詹杜固仁波切拥有了自己在城市的中心,也开启了自个的禅修林。这些年仁波切都是在默默地做事,不曾间断的进行着对上师的承诺,也因为仁波切的真诚,世界各国的行者都十分尊重他。虽然如此,目前其私人博客已拥有超过六百万的支持者,但性格低调的仁波切还是秉持着释迦能仁的教诲,以慈悲与智慧去感化大家的心灵。

    举例昨晚通往文冬关丹的加叻大道发生土崩事件,仁波切非常担忧他的弟子可能会被困在其中,不停地发出讯息探问每位弟子身在何处,焦虑的心情可从仁波切发出的短信看到。当大家回应没事时,仁波切马上心如大石般放下了。

    当我们正要放下警惿心时,一转身仁波切却召集了数位弟子凖备热茶和饱点说要派送给在现场督工和维持秩序的警察、志愿警卫团和其他工作人员。仁波切说,这些人在现场冒着生命危险,被雨水淋了很久,应该是挺疲倦、又饿又冷;我们应该给予他们一些温暖的支持才对。

    我的佛友杨力明在他的短讯裡说:”仁波切率领我们去“旧街场”咖啡室买热腾腾的咖啡和在7-11便利店买许多零食。仁波切也亲自引导我们去给在场的工作人员派发点心和饮料。我们的行动从昨晚10点钟(2015年11月11日)开始至凌晨2点。”

    身为仁波切的弟子,我每次都被仁波切这种无时无刻都在等候服务众生的精神,而感动得不能自己。对我而言,仁波切这种无微不至、不求回报的精神;就是来自他那源源不绝、踏实且真摰的爱! 这也是给予曾问过我以上问题的人的一个绝响的答案。

  46. Lucy Yap on Nov 13, 2015 at 12:51 am

    Rinpoche’s immediate compassion and generosity is boundless! His love for all Beings has no limits. We can’t run out of love as this is what Rinpoche represents. Thank you Rinpoche ! Thank you to the wonderful and hardworking Kechara team .

  47. Jutika Lam on Nov 12, 2015 at 10:02 pm

    The mudslide that occurred last night is really unfortunate and it is not something we all expected to happen.

    It is really good for Pastor Seng Piow, Pastor Shin together with Pam, Khoo and Nicholas and along with Rinpoche to buy hot drinks and snacks for the policemen, RELA workers and all the other workers who were working through the night and under the cold rain clearing up the mud, debris and fallen trees along the Karak Highway as well as the trunk road.

    It is good for us as a Dharma center to extend a helping hand towards the people who are working to clear the roads for us road users to use as it promotes religious harmony and to let the workers know that we as road users appreciate their hard work and efforts.

    Thank you Nicholas and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing!

  48. cynthialee on Nov 12, 2015 at 9:06 pm

    Some people have to do are jobs which nobody really wants to do but someone had to do it. Rinpoche always reminds us this so that we are grateful for what we have and at the same time see the difficulties other face.

    While most of us only look at our problems and complications this land slide caused (well, I couldn’t go back to PJ as intended and had to cancel meetings and arranged for my cat and sister’s cats to be fed), Rinpoche always look at the situation the other way round which is always what people are feeling and going through. There is no ME ME ME factor and this had been proven countless times over and over again.

    Irregardless who, Tsem Rinpoche will always show immense care and generosity to anyone which nobody even gave a thought to.

    It can be as simple as buying food and hot drinks to make someone’s day a little better.

  49. Sarah on Nov 12, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Seeing the smiles on the faces of the policemen, highway workers and volunteers, when they received the drinks and snacks from H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his students, really warms my heart. The smiles indicated that they were happy because their hard work was appreciated! At times like these, when there is a natural disaster, we, the general public, must show our gratitude to those whose duty it is to ensure that we are safe. Rinpoche has shown us the way. This is true community spirit.

  50. Beatrix Ooi on Nov 12, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    It was a relief to learn that no one was hurt during the incident, I’m glad to know that the officials took actions immediately to control the situation, and made it easier for the publics who were stuck in the traffics. It is very heartwarming to see the policemen, workers and volunteers etc working together hand in hand in the rain. we may say that this is their job but you know what, we all have out own “jobs”, and the choice to perform it wholeheartedly or not is in our hands. These officials have definitely went way beyond their jobs and responsibility to take care of the public, I appreciate and admire their hard work very much.

    Kepada pihak-pihak yang terlibat di dalam operasi penyelamatan dan pembersihan, saya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih atas usaha dan kerjasama yang dipaparkan.

  51. Toh Cheng See on Nov 12, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    A great compassion from Rinpoche and Kechara team. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing true compassion not only to the needy but to those on duty. Rinpoche is always so detailed to the needs of others . Thank you Rinpoche.

  52. keng tan on Nov 12, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    Thank you for sharing the news of the events of yesterday. Humans are quite strange ‘creatures’. Under normal conditions, they will go about their own business but when natural disasters occur, they will come together to help. It shows humanity is not lost and if one digs deeper, one will find humanity always.

    Kechara under the guidance of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is truly amazing in reaching out to the emergency services who were swift to the rescue call. They are trained in situations like this so it was best they are lef to salvage the situations but very often people have to concerns for them or their feelings and Kechara was terrific to hand out hot drinks and snacks to keep the emergency services warm and energised and motivated.

    Caring is free and one should always care.

    One world, one race, one religion – Earth/Humans/Kindness…

  53. sweekeong on Nov 12, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    When I heard that the government officers who direct the heavy traffic are without raincoat under the night and replied smiling when asked for direction, I thought they are quite selfless. They joined the public service to serve and benefit the people. We have heard a lot of bad press and criticism against public servants but there are many good people doing their job beyond what is expected of them. It is very touching.

    Sweekeong

  54. Justin Cheah on Nov 12, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the messages and the audio messages as well. It is really inspiring. Where would anyone be thinking of the officers and workers who had to do “overtime” and risking their lives helping in the affected places.

    I guess the officers and government servants were even spurred on to work even harder to clear up those roads after food and drinks were sent to them. It is not much about the food but the thoughts of appreciation that they rarely get that will spur them on.

    In doing so, others were also inspired to contribute their part by starting to flock the convenient stores to do the same. Not only that, in the process i think Rinpoche’s kindness have the knock on effect that will make them (the officers or volunteers) to do the same in times like this in future. It is like a teaching itself for those involved and the ones affected by the unforeseen tragedy.

    Thank you Rinpoche so much! Hope this kind gesture will spread far and wide and people who sees this will do the same. Then the world will be a better place

  55. Valentina Suhendra on Nov 12, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for posting about the relief effort performed by Rinpoche and team. It is very nice of them to care for the government officials, road workers and volunteers. Usually, others will only care about the victims, but Rinpoche also care about the workers who were working hard to clear the road.

  56. Shelly tai on Nov 12, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us an act of compassion and caring again and again. I think is not easy for all these workers has to work the whole night to clear the road so with this aprraciation act by Rinpoche actually we Keachra do care about what going around us this is really a true spiritual practice.

  57. Joy on Nov 12, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    Sometimes we need to show APPRECIATION to those out there in the rain, in the dark, in the mud, and during emergencies such as this landslide. The authorities and workers whose work can be dangerous, they risk their lives for being out there for us, selflessly serving the public. They are humans too and we sometimes overlook this and forget as hurriedly rush off to our next destination.

    So what is the definition of ‪”Compassion‬ in Action”? It would be such spontaneous acts like these initiated by H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche who has always consistently do and encourages us to do… to show care, kindness and appreciation.

    When Rinpoche saw these workers, it moved Rinpoche and immediately Rinpoche has a thought “what if it was Rinpoche standing out there in the rain? How would Rinpoche feel…” Definitely Rinpoche or anyone would easily fall sick. They were all wet, yet they were smiling and they answered nicely when they were asked regarding the situation. This touched Rinpoche very much which initiated Rinpoche to get a few people in KFR to help in buying hot drinks and snacks for the workers.

    It is a great ‪‎blessing to be able to be of service to others and in times of need like this, to take action beyond our comfort zones, to benefit someone, so show human kindness especially to those we so often forget. This is what being human is all about.

    Thank you to the Bentong authorities, and all who were involved in helping with the landslide last night and I believe who are probably still working hard now to clear the area. You are appreciated!

    Such compassionate acts does not just benefit those receiving it but the ones giving it too for “true” happiness is about making others happy and in return we are happy too “without” expecting it.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the kind KFR team who immediately went out last night with Rinpoche to show humane kindness to the authorities. And I am sure we will do more. Whatever Rinpoche does is always to benefit others now and into the future.

  58. Sharon Ong on Nov 12, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    So glad that there has been no fatalities from this landslide.

    It truly warms my heart to see how caring and thoughtful my Guru and my Dharma siblings are at times like this when no one would even stop and think about these men in blue and those who were working feverishly in the cold rain (many without raincoats!), at such an ungodly hour. Bet many would grumble at the traffic jam and inconvenience.

    This is a testimony of how Kecharians give back to the community by serving those who are serving our community.

    Thank you for this post, Pastor Seng Piow. And thank you, Rinpoche for continuously showing us how we can use the 23 hours off the meditation cushion meaningfully.

  59. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Nov 12, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    Sering kali kita tidak memberi kredit kepada pekerja-pekerja kerajaan, tetapi kita perlu sekali murah hati dengan pujian kami seperti mana kami selalu murah hati dengan aduan kami.

    * Apabila terdapatnya api, siapakah anda pangil?
    * Apabila anda terlibat dalam kemalangan, siapakah yang datang membantu dan membersihkan jalan raya?
    * Apabila anda memasuki hospital, siapakah yang merawat anda?
    * Apabila anda tersesat di sebuah gunung, siapakah yang pergi menyelamatkan anda?
    * Apabila anak anda hilang, siapakah yang tergesa-gesa mencari mereka?

    Pada masa anda dan keluarga anda mengalami kesusahan dalam hidup, barulah kami mengenali and mengiktiraf nilai perkerja kerajaan kita. Pekerja awam Malaysia yang sentiasa tidak dikenali oleh orang ramai, melatih diri dan berkerja keras untuk rakyat dan negara. Khidmat mereka sepatutnya dihargai oleh orang ramai.

    Walaupun sering kali terdapat orang mengkritik dengan negatif sekali, tidak sekalipun mereka menunjuk kemarahan, kekecewaan ataupun mengadu. Sebaliknya, mereka terpaksa senyum apabila dipanggil untuk membantu, kerana kerja mereka adalah untuk membantu rakyat dan negara.

    Bukan semua orang mampu mendapat bantuan peribadi, dan kita harus selalu mengingati bahawa perkerja kerajaan kami perlu membantu bukan sahaja anda, tetapi kebanyakan rakyat in negara kita. Tidak perlu saya berkata bahawa servis sektor awam di Malaysia memberi saya pengalaman yang amat baik sekali di hopital dan batuan profesional di balai polis.

    Adakah kadang-kala kita mendapati pekerja awam kurang ajar? Mestilah.
    Adakah kadang-kala mereka mengambil masa lama untuk melayan kami? Mestilah.
    Adakah kadang-kala mereka membuat kesilapan? Mestilah.

    Tetapi kenapa perkara tersebut boleh berlaku? Kerana mereka adalah manusia juga. Mereka boleh jadi penat, kecewa dan perlu berehat juga. Bukankan kami perlu berehat juga?

    Di masa depan, apabila anda perlu mendapat bantuan dari pekerja awan, tolong mengingati bahawa anda adalah satu orang, tetapi mereka perlu servis beribu-ribu permintaan dan aduan dari rakyat setiap hari.

    Saya harap lebih rakyat akan bersuara dan berterima kasih atas kebaikan dan usaha pekerja awam kita di Malaysia.

    —–

    人们通常不会给予我们的政府工作人员和公务员足够的肯定,而事实上,我们应该像随时脱口而出的批评一样,毫不吝啬地给予他们同等的称赞。

    * 火灾的时候,你会给谁打电话?
    * 遇到车祸时,是谁提供你帮助?清除道路上的残局的人又是谁?
    * 在医院里,是谁为你缝针?
    * 当你迷路和受困在山上时,是谁前来拯救你?
    * 你的孩子失踪时,是谁协助寻找他们?

    我们只有在自己和家人遇到困难时,才会发现政府和公务员的存在价值。他们接受了训练,每天都要为人民服务。对于他们的贡献,我们该站在人与人之间的平等立场上,给予肯定和表示敬意。

    长久以来,他们无法自我辩护或反驳那些针对他们所作出的负面报道和回应。他们不能表现愤怒或不满,也不能投诉。他们只能带着微笑地继续完成自己的任务,因为他们的工作就是帮助我们。

    并非每一个人都有能力享受私有企业的照顾和协助,我们必须记得这些职工们所服务的对象是那些需要他们的普罗大众。事实上,我在马来西亚的某一些最美好的经历是在公共部门发生的。我曾在公家医院得到最好、最有耐心的照顾,也曾跟警察有过十分专业和充满谅解的互动。

    他们有时会显得无礼吗?是的。他们往往用很长的时间来完成一件事吗?是的。他们有时也会犯错吗?是的。为什么?因为他们也都是人,他们有时候也会感到疲累,有时也会不耐烦,也想要休息一会。我们不都是这样吗?所以,当你下一次再面对政府公务员时,请记得他们每天都要处理成千上万的请求和投诉。他们只是一个人,而我们则是 许多人。

    我希望越来越多人能挺身而出,为我们善良、努力的政府公务员说公道话,并肯定他们的贡献。他们也值得拥有我们的感谢。

    —–

    People don’t often give enough credit to our government workers and civil servants, but we should be as easy with our compliments as we are with our complaints.

    * When there is a fire, who do you call?
    * When you get into an accident, who comes to your aid? Who clears the roads?
    * When you go to the hospital, who stitches you up?
    * When you’re stuck on a mountain and lost, who goes to rescue you?
    * When your child is missing, who goes to look for them?

    It is when you and your family are in trouble that our government and civil workers show their worth. They train and work day in, day out to serve the rakyat, and it is good for us to recognise and honour that, human to human.

    And all this time, they cannot talk or fight back against all the negative press and responses they receive. They cannot show their anger or frustration, and they are never allowed to complain. They just smile and get on with their jobs, because their job is helping you.

    Not everyone cannot afford private care and assistance, and we have to remember that these men and women serve the majority of the population who DEPEND on them. In fact, some of my best experiences in Malaysia has been in the public sector; I have received very good, very patient care from public hospitals, and very understanding and professional interactions with the police.

    Are they rude sometimes? Yes. Do things take a long time sometimes? Yes. Do they make mistakes sometimes? Yes. Why? Because they are human and sometimes, they get tired, they get frustrated, they want to take a break too. Don’t we all? Next time you deal with a government worker, please remember they have to deal with thousands of requests and complaints every single day. They are one and we are many.

    I hope more and more people speak out and recognise the kindness and hard work of our civil servants. They deserve our thanks too.

  60. Frederick Law on Nov 12, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche and team who had went out at night to distribute the hot coffee and snacks for the officers and workers at Bentong. This is geat example of Rinpoch and Kechara compassion in action.

    Thank You Nicholas for the update of last night event.

    Thank You,
    Frederick law

  61. MITRA on Nov 12, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    Compassion people they never look there self pain , they feel pain for other.Thank you Rinpoche and the Kechara teams for showing love care for public.And thank you for using real action to teach us Dharma.Thank you again for our real hero Tsem Rinpoche and teams.

  62. Sofi on Nov 12, 2015 at 3:12 pm

    Thank you Nicholas for the updates and Pastor Seng Piow for the photos of Rinpoche and the “care team” in action. The first thought that came to mind was of Rinpoche’s story of his mother and him helping drivers stranded in the snow, by giving them hot soup and care. Rinpoche had always been a leading example to us of putting his compassionate thought into actions of compassion.
    Rinpoche’s teaching of getting out of our comfort zone of “me, me, me” is so fitting at this time, with the example of bringing some relief and care into the lives of the police, government officers (especially JKR), volunteer workers such as RELA, highway employees, and road workers. They are often taken for granted but they are the people helping the lives of other people, usually under harsh conditions.
    May we be the fulfilment of Rinpoche’s wishes to be the leader in caring for the communities! With folded hands, Sofi

  63. sweekeong on Nov 12, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    Although no one is injured or life is lost in this landslide epsiode, the authorities, recovery and resuce teams on the grounds have much work to do to cleanup the road to be safe for public use again. As in any natural disasters they stay outdoor over the night to do their work. Who lookout after them?

    Thank you Rinpoche and the Kechara teams for showing up that the public needs to show appreciation and gratitude to these brave man and woman who risk their safety to maintain the traffic order and at the same time restore the public road. We rely and dependant on each other to survive especially disasters.

    Compassion in Action!!!
    Rinpoche sets an example to all of us again during the unfortunate event which happened yesterday evening after a heavy downpour which cause a major landslide near Bentong by distributing hot drinks and some snacks to the officials and workers who work tirelessly making sure the road users to have a safe journey.
    Thank You, Rinpoche and team for distributing the hot drinks and food to officers and workers who were soaking wet guiding/ working under the rain.

    With Folded Hands & Love,
    Adrian Chow

    It’s luckily no one get hurt in this landslide and flood. Rinpoche is always cares and lend a hand to those who need in time of need; whether they are strangers or friends or small animals.

    Yesterday’s spontaneous action of help led by Rinpoche and His students just another compassionate act by Rinpoche all these years. He is a Guru compassion in action, for sure.

    Our society will be a better place to live in when we care each other and appreciate each other. I can see the happy faces of the on duty officials; as well as happy faces of Kecharians who giving out warm coffee with love.

  66. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Nov 12, 2015 at 2:32 pm

    When the landslide hit, I can imagine most people were in their cars pissed off, annoyed, irritated that their travel plans were delayed. Rinpoche’s reaction was totally different…

    Gathering a group of students, Rinpoche’s first reaction was how he can help the civil workers working in a heavy downpour. Some were without raincoats, and soaked through. Yet, they were patient, they smiled and they were polite when answering questions over and over again from everyone wondering when the roads would be clear.

    People are often quick to criticise our civil workers, and equally quick to forget they are people. When a disaster strikes, they are the ones risking their lives to make ours less dangerous, all while facing complaints that they aren’t working fast enough, etc. Yes, it’s their job to do all of this but could you do their job?

    And ladies and gentlemen, this is the kind of teacher we have. In the 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion, it says in Verse 7 that a teacher should be compassionate and disciplined. The teacher should not be angersome, vicious, arrogant, possessive or boast of his knowledge. Thank you H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for bringing this teaching to life _/|\_

    If we truly practise Dharma, there will be no problem in making things a success. Dharma is about the attitude. The right attitude is to be mindful, consistent and persistent. When we do something, whether big or small, it will affect someone in some extent. Always strive to do things perfectly and make it convenient for others.

    GREAT NEWS FOR ALL ANIMAL LOVERS! The ban on animal testing has reached another milestone!

    Now in the European Union (EU), all cosmetic products that are tested on animals are banned! It hasn’t taken full effect, but it has been implemented. The previous ban that was implemented in 2009 to stop animal testing, was also re-enforced so that no animals are allowed to be used even if it is to test on complex health effects such as cancer.

    Animal cruelty is widespread across the globe. Fortunately, awareness about animal cruelty is also growing. We now see many famous celebrities speaking up against animal cruelty, and I find that very touching and a good use of the fame that they have. However, their efforts are not quite enough as many more animals still go through much sufferings, sometimes they go unnoticed!

    Is there any form of animal cruelty happening in your own or neighbours backyard?

    Freedom and Jeff Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places. She’s my baby.

    When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vet’s office. From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

    Say NO to Elephant-RIDING, say NO to using elephants for human entertainment in Circuises or Tourisms . . .

    Elephants that ”work” in Thailand and other tourist destinations have to go through a ritual called phajaan, or “crush”. It begins with the baby elephants (usually three to four years old) being taken from their mothers and placed in a small, wooden pen. To get them securely in the pen, these babies are beaten with bamboo, sticks with nails attached to the tip and bull hooks. Once in place, the crush lasts for roughly a week. During this time, they are beaten, bludgeoned, have hooks attached to their sensitive ears, and are deprived of food and water as well as sleep, all in the name of breaking ties with their mothers and becoming domesticated. While in the crush, through the infliction of pain, they learn how to accept riders, do circus tricks and paint. This is designed to break the animal’s spirit which it certainly achieves, often taking its sanity too.

    For all nature lovers out there, if you are looking for a great place to explore the wonders and awes of Mother Nature and her creations, Malaysia can be one of the best places in the world that you should consider. Here are some trivial facts that will tell you why.

    – Malaysia is located near the equator, with a hot and humid climate rich in tropical wildlife
    – Malaysia is internationally recognized by Conservation International as one of the world’s 17 megadiverse countries
    – Approximately two-thirds of Malaysian territory is covered by tropical rainforests and mangroves, with some believed to be 130 million years old
    – Malaysia is home to an estimated 20% of the world’s animal species.
    – Malaysia’s waters are amongst the world’s most biodiverse, with an estimated 600 coral species, 1200 fish species and several other species of sea turtles, sea snakes and other marine life
    – An estimated 15,500 flowering plant and tree species, as well as nearly 4000 fungi species, exist throughout Malaysia

    Malaysia is very rich in wildlife, and this includes numerous rare species of flora and fauna perhaps not found in any other parts of the world. The list above of ten of the most well-known rare species found in Malaysia that you should not miss during your outdoor expeditions into Mother Nature’s vast realms.

    Yes I do wonder why some people are born rich and in the other some are born poor. To me it’s the reincarnation , whatever we are born and the suffering are cause by our previous actions. Reincarnation is the religious concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, can begin a new life in a new body. Interest video to watch regarding a short sharing of reincarnation. I do definitely believe from what I see and read . The actions of a person lead to a new existence after death, in endless cycles called saṃsara. I did read in books how most children start talking about a previous life around the time they begin to talk . By the time they’re a teenager, they might deny ever having remembered a past life. As for me I don’nt remember my past life at all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    True enough life is short, we will all die somedays. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will benefits others and lives meaningfully. That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet. Live our life, learning Dharma , practice Dharma, is the best choice. Change our thoughts , transform our mind and we change our world. Those who realize their folly are not true fools. Life is too important to be taken seriously. Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. It always seems impossible until it’s done. Death is more universal than life, everyone dies . The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wisdom sharing.

    The act of making offerings to the Sangha is a fantastic way for us to collect merits and a great way to practice generosity, as taught by the Lord Buddha himself. On a personal level, I intend to practice the art of giving until my last breath; I also wish very much to live the life of a simple monk, meditating in a cave in the forest, with as few possessions as possible. Thus, I try to give most of what I receive away, and keep as little as possible for myself.

    So… when my students visited the monasteries in India at the end of 2014, I grabbed the opportunity to make some offerings to the monks there; some of them were friends that I’ve known for a long time but have not met for decades. I miss all of them very much and I am so happy that my students arranged to meet them and make the offerings on my behalf.

    All that being said, I am very, very happy to be able to bring you these images of Dorje Shugden from all the different traditions. If the Gelug, Nyingma, Sakya and Kagyu great masters and practitioners of the past saw huge benefits in relying on Dorje Shugden, so much so that they included him in such a wide range of paintings and images, it stands to reason that practitioners of today will also benefit from relying on Dorje Shugden too. Because it is not one, two or even five paintings that we are looking at, but over 40! And my guess is, there are many, many more that exist out there in the world that we just don’t know about yet.

    In reality, whatever we want to pray to or rely on is entirely our personal choice and a private matter, and no one should be able to tell us what we can and cannot pray to. Certainly no one has the right to impose sanctions upon us for the spiritual choices that we make. So putting current politics and issues aside, I hope that you will also be able to appreciate the artistic merit and talent that stands behind Tibetan art which is spiritual, ancient and beautiful, and done with purpose and meaning. Please download these beautiful ancient paintings for your shrine or to share with others.

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is perhaps one of the more notable previous lives of Dorje Shugden. In this incarnation, he is said to have made the promise to arise as a Dharma Protector to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa, thus laying the foundation for Dorje Shugden to manifest later, in another incarnation.

    Duldzin, which is an abbreviation of Dulwa Zinpa, literally means “Vinaya Holder” in Tibetan. This is actually a title bestowed upon him in recognition of his pure monkhood and incredible knowledge and understanding of the Vinaya texts — scriptures that contain teachings by Lord Buddha on monastic discipline.

    Prayer wheels, a common part of Tibetan Buddhist paraphernalia, are often underrated by those new to Buddhism. Tibetans, however, believe that spinning prayer wheels (the bigger the better) is a powerful way of generating tremendous amounts of merit necessary for spiritual awakening and that installing prayer wheels in a place is an immensely effective way to transform the environment.

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.
    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
