Dear friends around the world,

I recently came across this article on how Buddhism has influenced and completely turned a billionaire’s life around. If you read the interview transcript carefully, you will realise that Mr Chen is speaking from his heart; he understands and believes in the teachings of the historical Buddha.

What he has quoted from the Buddha about how we are never satisfied or happy even if we have everything in the world is excellent. To make it more personal, he even described how he felt during the peak of his life when he was “on top of the world” yet was nowhere near being happy. This teaching is very applicable to people in modern times where materialism has almost become one with our lives.

For instance, the famous designer Kate Spade committed suicide just over a month ago. She had what most people dream of — money, fame, big houses, cars, branded items, a family, a happy marriage, a partner and the ability to travel all around the world. She ate the best food, was dressed in the best clothes, and lived in the most ‘exciting’ city in the world. Yet, at 55, she finally had enough and decided to end it all. May she have a good rebirth.

Have you ever thought about why it is that people who have EVERYTHING are not happy? Probably because having everything in the world doesn’t actually bring happiness, but only leads to an extremely depressed, empty and bitter life because happiness is from the inside. Therefore it is very refreshing to read what Mr Chen has to say. I hope you enjoy the article and learn something. In today’s extremely materialistically driven world, spiritualism is very necessary. Spiritual paths are for our spirit which can never be touched by outer materialistic gains. Spiritualism is not in conflict with outer development but it should go together in tandem for a balance.

P.S.: I absolutely mean no disrespect to Ms Kate Spade; I am merely citing her as an example. I apologise if this has offended anyone in any way.

Chen Tianqiao could easily be mistaken for someone enjoying retirement. It’s not just his attire: a short-sleeved white shirt with a floral pattern down the middle, relaxed blue trousers, a pair of camo sneakers. Chen, who founded the online gaming company Shanda in 1999 and piloted it to an IPO in 2004, could enjoy an early retirement if he wanted. As China’s first true internet tycoon, he was a billionaire by age 30. And then he disappeared.

In 2010, Chen moved to Singapore with his family and took Shanda private while selling off what shares he still owned in its subsidiary companies. He wouldn’t have been the first dotcom billionaire to get out of the game young and spend the rest of his life enjoying his money. But that’s not why Chen stepped away from the business world. In the mid-2000s, when Shanda was at its peak, he began suffering intense, debilitating anxiety attacks that were compounded by a cancer scare. “I remember some nights, I wake up, and my heart is going boom, boom, boom,” Chen says. “I realized something terrible was happening to me.” The only way to survive was to leave the company he had created.

After spending several years in Singapore researching his next act, Chen decided on philanthropy with a very specific focus: the brain. Chen has set aside $1 billion to fund research on neuroscience, including $115 million to create the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech). Altogether it’s one of the biggest gifts ever devoted to foundational scientific research, and Chen and his wife have since moved to Silicon Valley to oversee their giving.

Chen, now 45, wants to help people who suffer as he once did. “When we decided to choose a second chapter and give our money, we focused on how to relieve this pain and suffering,” he says. But Chen is also fascinated by the scientific mysteries that could be unlocked by better understanding the brain — as well as the business opportunities that could arise as a result. (His investment firm has backed dozens of advanced technology ventures, with a particular interest in virtual reality.) Over the course of a two-hour conversation alongside Chrissy in their new house on New York’s Upper East Side, Chen touched on the connection between his Buddhist faith and the study of the brain, the need for technology to solve the problems it has created, and why he isn’t worried about the robot uprising.

The following interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

 


 

Medium: With Shanda, you experienced an incredible level of success very rapidly. But you’ve also spoken about the intense stress you began to feel as you were guiding the business. At what point did it become debilitating?

Chen Tianqiao: I founded my business in 1999, and we spent maybe three years 100 percent focused on the business. The rest of the time, I’m always fighting with pressure and stress. Even in 2008, when our share price reached a historical peak, and in 2009, when we raised $1.2 billion to spin off the game business [Shanda Games Ltd]. It’s good, but I think something must have been accumulating in my heart. Of course, I always have Chrissy with me. That was a very good help. But I also have 10,000 employees who are counting on me.

And I still remember some nights, one in the morning, and one of my colleagues would dial the wrong number and call me. And boom, I wake up, and my heart is going boom, boom, boom, boom. And one time in a plane, suddenly I feel like I’m having a heart attack. But it is not a heart attack. It’s a panic attack. So I realized something terrible was happening to me.

In 2010, after the panic attack and even cancer is diagnosed, we decided to move to a new environment. It was a critical decision, and I think my whole life started to change then.

Was that a difficult decision to make—to step away from this company you built?

Of course, of course. After I moved to Singapore, it took us at least two to three years. I would look back to China and see these competitors, whom I saw as second-tier players. They were gradually coming and taking our market share. And you want to go back, even though you know you should not go back. That is a struggle. But I keep talking to Chrissy, and Chrissy always encourages me. And she said most people can only climb one mountain, but maybe you can climb the second or the third. And I can choose a new chapter in my life.

Many people are addicted to their past successes. They think that’s all they’ll have. So I always talk to entrepreneurs in my generation and tell them, “Your life is not only this company. Please look up and you can see many, many interesting things.” But I can see many of them still struggling, because of the competition, because of different pressures. They have a very stressful life.

You’re a Buddhist now. Was that part of the recalibration you made?

Frankly speaking, I didn’t really believe in religion very much before this. Chrissy would talk to some Buddhist masters, and I always said, “Don’t waste your time.” But when I was 36, and I was diagnosed, I realized that what the Buddha said is really right. I’m rich; I have everything I want, including a very happy family. So why did I always feel unhappy? Why did I have panic attacks? Why was I always not satisfied?

The Buddha said we have to seek the answer internally. The fact is that everybody in life is suffering. This is the fundamental principle of the Buddha’s teaching: that life is suffering. Many people don’t trust that. But life is suffering, because even with happiness, even with pleasure, even with your nice house, someday you will lose it. Ultimately, you have to die. Ultimately, you have to experience this pain. Even in the moment when you are happy. So I said, “It’s right.”

And when we decided to choose a second chapter and give our money, we focused on how to relieve this pain and suffering.

When we chose this, some people said, “No, no, no! Why do you choose pain? Pain is a symptom. You should cure the disease, because without the disease, there is no pain.” And I told them, “No, disease is also a symptom.” Disease is a symptom of death. Disease is the path to death. And death is the only disease of our life. And we have to admit that death is not something we can cure. Even though in Silicon Valley, they’re bold enough to think they can.

I was going to ask about that.

Even though I may not agree with them, I respect them, and I would like to give money to support them. But we have to admit that in the foreseeable future, death is not curable. And when you die, no matter of what kind of disease, that last period is full of suffering. The fear, the pain, all the unknown. So I think that if you can cure the suffering of life, this is the best way to cure death. If death has no suffering, it’s just like sleep, right? And the way to cure it is to learn to accept it.

So finally, we believe that death and the pain should be our future focus. And then we go to meet many scientists—almost 300 scientists so far.

And did you know that the scientific focus was going to be on neuroscience? Was that always clear?

No, I will tell you. Neuroscience is a bottleneck to understanding our brain. But this is not the only part. I have always told people that although our focus is on neuroscience, at the end of the day, my vision of the Chen Institute is the vertical integration of difference disciplines related to the brain and the mind. So neuroscience, but also psychiatry, psychology, sociology, and philosophy. Divinity school, too. I want to combine all these different disciplines together, but so far I see the bottlenecks in neuroscience, because we are trying to solve this problem through a scientific way.

We have a top-down approach and a bottom-up approach. We ask ourselves for thousands of years: Who are we? Why do we suffer? What is real happiness? What is consciousness? I think the top-down approach is from religion, philosophy, sociology, and all those things. Even thousands of years ago, philosophers could ask themselves these questions. No one can stop you from thinking this. But the top-down approach faces some problems because modern people always say, “Show me.”

Right. They want proof and data.

Right. “Show me the facts.” Neuroscience is the discipline that can do that. Let’s take psychiatry, for example. So far, a psychiatry diagnosis still relies mostly on an interview. It’s still mostly subjective. I talk to psychiatry department deans and ask, “When can you install imaging? When you can install some sort of biomarker to detect depression?” I think I have some mental disorders, and I truly believe there must be something wrong, some chemical or something in my brain. For example, when I take a plane, I’m a very rational guy and I know it’s the safest kind of transportation, but I’m still afraid. But after I take a pill, suddenly it’s gone. That shows so-called fear, psychiatric depression, you can detect it, through a scientific way. But it’s as if psychiatry just stopped there.

Neuroscience is a bottleneck to understanding our brain.

I’m very disappointed in this. Cancer has many different ways we can detect it. But so far the brain and the mind, it’s still the same as 50 years ago. So I think this is the right time for us to do something.

Why the philanthropic approach? One billion dollars is a lot of money. Why choose that route rather than investing?

We have studied different ways of improving some of the philanthropic investments, but I think for brain and the mind, we have to choose a nonprofit way because we lack an understanding of some of the fundamental aspects of the brain. This is a bottleneck. And all this research is still in the university or the institute, which is a nonprofit organization. For example, Elon Musk said he wants to embed chips in the brain [through his startup Neuralink]. And we talked to neuroscientists at CalTech, and they said no way, that’s 50 years away.

I think we view our approach as humble. We want to give scientists fundamental support, and we want to solve fundamental questions. We are not satisfied just with making money.

Is there work being done at the Chen Institute that particularly excites you?

Yeah. For example, at the Brain-Machine Interface Center, Richard Andersen can simulate the feeling of touch and sense through manipulating the brain of a paralyzed patient. The patient, below a part, he may have no feeling. But Richard stimulates something, and then the patient can say, “Oh, someone is tickling me.”

That’s actually proving one of my hypotheses that the world is actually only perception.

The world is only perception?

That is another philosophical question. Is the world real or virtual? I truly believe it’s virtual. Because if our eyes, our naked eyes, can have the same function of a microscope, of course a microscope is more real than our naked eyes, right? When I see you, it should be just atoms in cells here and there, and I could see in the air how many molecules of H2O, how many oxygen atoms here and there floating around. That is real. But what I see is what our naked eye edits. That’s perception.

Another scientist, our director David Anderson, he can manipulate the emotions of a mouse. When he turns on one button, the mouse is suddenly very peaceful. When he turns on another, the mouse suddenly fights. All the aggression is controlled by a group of neurons. So this is another of my hypotheses—that we are chemical robots.

In the future, perhaps I could put on a helmet and download some software, and this software can activate neurons — maybe I could create a world for you. That is possible.

Would that be a good thing, do you think?

I’m only talking about the truth. No good or bad, no value judgments. Of course, good or bad is very important. But right now I just want to tell you how powerful technology, especially neuroscience technology, could be in the future.

Where do you see that going? In 20 years’ time, how will we as human beings be different as this technology evolves?

I think our technology has reached an extreme. We have tried our best to change the external world to satisfy our brain. If we want to do more, we have to understand our internal worlds. So, the next stage is hacking the brain, and only if you do that can you significantly raise satisfaction and happiness.

People talk about the fourth industrial revolution, and many people have said that this will be artificial intelligence. But I think this is too narrow. A.I. is only part of it. I think it should be cognition science. Without understanding our own intelligence, you cannot have artificial intelligence—not at a very high level. And current artificial intelligence, I don’t think it’s a real intelligence.

When you look at A.I., it seems that the current method is based around gathering and mining as much data as we can. But that’s not how human cognition works, and it seems like they’ve moved away from trying to pattern A.I. off the human brain. Is that a mistake, to remove the human from this sort of work?

Artificial intelligence has a lot of successes, like machine learning and deep learning, and nobody denies this, but we shouldn’t be satisfied by this. I always use the example of my two-year-old son. He can always recognize an uncle or an auntie on the street. He will never call it wrong. But a computer has to be trained millions of times to know “This is a kitty, this is a cookie.”

Right now we teach machines only one value statement: efficiency. The machine optimizes the efficient. The machine always knows how to quickly find the best way. But if the machine ruled the world, it must say, “Kill all the old men and sick people because of their weight on resources,” right? So we have to teach the machines fairness and compassion. But how do we do that when we don’t know how to define them?

Going back to psychiatry, we base our judgments on subjective interviews, but how do we pass this experience onto a machine?

There are people who worry that A.I. is going to be an existential risk. Are you afraid the robots are going to take over?

I think there are two types of threat. One is that it takes jobs from people. But I don’t think this is a big threat. Technology will generate new jobs for people. There may be some suffering, they may need time to be educated or trained, but for humans, we’ll adjust.

The second worry is that they could develop consciousness and surpass us. This is theoretically possible. They already calculate much, much faster than we do, but they still don’t have any consciousness. There must be something mysterious we don’t know. It’s like a computer without the right software.

Some people say machines have machine rights just like human rights. They have the right to get smarter. We should not just try to put our value system through the machine. Maybe one day the machines will become self-aware and they should have their own rights. I think, yes, maybe. But that will be a new species. Why would we bother to create a new species? We have so many humans still suffering and starving and so many species on earth still facing extinction. Why bother creating something new? I think the current debate around this is very messy.

You’re also involved in venture capital investing around the brain and neuroscience. Within those areas, where do you see growth? Is it going to be pharmaceutical? Machine-brain connections?

As I said, this is about fundamental research. This is curiosity-driven. We’re seeking the truth. But with fundamental research discovery, I think it can meet three demands for all of humanity. The first we call brain treatment—to deal with the mental disorders that are growing so rapidly—which I think will be the big challenge in the future. Not only mental disorders but also neurodegenerative disease. We are getting older and older, and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, all of these types of things definitely someday will get you.

Depression has become the number one disease. I think we can be very helpful for this. We truly believe fundamental research will contribute a lot to this over the next 10 to 20 years.

[T]he next stage is hacking the brain, and only if you do that can you significantly raise satisfaction and happiness.

The second issue we call brain development. I think if we really want to benefit humanity, we have to understand ourselves, and then we can give purpose to the world, to the car, to the house, to everything, so the world can read your mind to know what you want, and you let the world satisfy you. To hack yourself and change your body through genetic editing. I think these are killer applications for the future.

The third one is really our ultimate vision. We try to answer these big types of questions, such as what is consciousness? Who are we? And what is real and what is virtual? This may seems too academic a discussion, but it really matters to me and, I think, to many people. For thousands of years, these have been the ultimate questions the whole of humanity has been asking. And I think maybe we are lucky that our generation may find that truth.

You were talking about depression. We’ve seen that suicide rates are increasing. Why do you think that is?

I think it is because of technology. I think technology developed too rapidly, and many people cannot accept it.

When you say technology, what do you mean?

You have a phone in your hand that can connect you to anyone. You can get a thing done in one minute that 10 or 20 years ago would have taken you a month. This is the pace we live at now. But I believe people have a limitation on their capacity for connection. You don’t know how to handle these relationships. The speed of information. There’s so much information flooding into your brain, and your brain has to judge yes or no, because more and more people, with the help of a blast from technology, they also have a voice. There are so many different views flooding in your brain, and you have to judge what you like, what you want.

I say you run too fast. I cannot chase you. I just want you to stop. I want to stop you, right? This is technology. But we cannot just stop.

You can’t just take away technology.

Yeah, you cannot do that. So we have to use technology to solve the problems that technology generated. That’s why cognitive science, studying the brain, is so important. People say, “Oh, technology is such that one crazy guy can press the nuclear button and the world just disappears.” They say, “This is technology.” But we want to know why does the guy press that button?

If technology is here to say, then it seems like we have to fix our brains to adjust to technology.

I don’t know how to solve this problem. But I think the more we understand our brains, the better we’ll be able to mitigate these mental disorders.

Do you think in the future we’ll go beyond trying to cure clear mental disorders and depression and move toward trying to actively shape our brains to make ourselves more intelligent, to have more willpower? Is that the direction humanity is going?

I don’t know. It’s hard to say what is normal and what is abnormal. You said, ah, maybe someday, if our technology is good enough, then we adjust everybody’s brain to a normal condition if they are abnormal. But the question is: What is normal? Right? Even now, all the so-called normal people, they hold many different views on the same thing.

But with more understanding of our brain, at least we can reduce the hurt or harm to society through the actions that everyone can agree is wrong. Suicide or terrorism, for example, those types of things we can reduce. But in a normal society, it’s difficult for us to all improve, because we have to keep our flexibility and the diversity of our brain.

In South Korea, for example, they’re very good at plastic surgery. So all the beautiful women look the same! Is that what we want? It’s a value judgment, and to my point of view, it would be better to keep diversity.

But with more understanding of our brain, at least we can reduce the hurt or harm to society through the actions that everyone can agree is wrong.

You mentioned virtual reality as something you’re interested in. As someone who made their fortune in digital entertainment, how do you see that shaping the future?

I’ve always said that the ultimate version of VR is dreaming. Our brain is powerful enough to create a virtual reality that can mimic the sound and feel of reality. That’s amazing.

So I think, why do we have to rely on a Google helmet? We know so little about our brain. What if we could manipulate our brain and just continue our dream? When I wake up from a good dream, I’m always so disappointed. What if I could continue my dream in the night? If you can continue the dream, that would be a huge industry. I’ve always said that would be the terminator of the entertainment industry.

I’ve asked scientists, including at my institute, if they could mimic sensation. Currently, you can only mimic sound and visuals. If you can feel something, then the brain could mimic everything. So I think the ultimate version of VR should come from our brain itself. It’s powerful enough.

We’ve already talked about the impact technology has had on our happiness. Is there a risk that if we could do that with VR, it would make that even worse?

I think it’s only enhancing the trends; it will not change a lot. For example, when I was young, and after the opening and reform of China, a lot of movies were introduced from Hong Kong and America. It opened up a new world. Now, I’m a good boy. The only time my mother scolded me was when I tried to find some time to watch a movie at my friend’s home. She said, “Why would you see these things? They’ll make you addicted, they’ll make you do blah, blah, blah. TV series, movies, they’ll introduce you to bad things. You won’t learn. You won’t go to work.” Then, in my generation, everybody did the same thing. My users’ parents, when I was at Shanda, every day they just criticized me and said our product was addictive.

I think if [the technology] is much more vivid, the trend will be enhanced. You will always find that some people are addicted to it. It’s like a drug. The drug is so powerful, it can take control of your brain and let you feel happy. But if it has the same effect as a drug, our government already has some regulations. I think going forward, even if VR can generate more addictive things, we can take drug regulation as a benchmark. I think it can be regulated.

Ultimately, do you feel optimistic about the direction we’re going with technology and the brain? Do you think we’ll be able to make ourselves fitter and happier?

I cannot find an answer to this. That’s why I’m a little pessimistic. I think there are so many problems that are generated by technology. What I can do is try to use scientific ways to mitigate the possible consequence of that technology. But if we don’t do that, it could lead to very bad consequences.

When I gave money to an American university [CalTech], the Chinese media criticized me. But I think the current debate or current conflict is not between the people of one country and the people of another. This is our humanity.

    This interview by Bryan Walsh with Mr Chen was very thought provoking.
    Big investment involved to attempt to “Fix the Brain”!
    The whole idea of fixing the brain stemmed from Mr Chen’s believe that dealing with death and its related pain should be the future focus of scientists. Hence, the billions of dollars spent (or to be spent) to better understand the brain and to provide man-made solutions to address mental pain and diseases.
    There is no doubt that it’s a well intentioned investment and philantrophy effort, especially so after Mr Chen himself was once caught in the web of depression and bad health. Despite all his wealth and business “success”, he was physically and mentally unwell. With the help of his loved ones, he took refuge in the Buddha and finally found a path more worth exploring. Mr Chen used his business acumen to explore and investigate the complex mystery of the mind, how it ticks and how to reduce/eliminate pain via the mind.

    At the time of the interview, Mr Chen did express his pessimism towards the status on the direction of technology and the brain. He feels that the neuroscience method of finding proof on this subject is a bottleneck that’s hard to overcome. It is a challenge to convince humans via religion, philosophy and sociology because humans want proof and data. This fact ironically coincides with many religion’s prophecy of how hard it would be for humans to benefit from the teachings of a religion; mainly because humans refuse to believe or use science to challenge faith.

    In my personal opinion, technology will be unable to provide a cure to mental diseases and challenges. Technology in fact is the major culprit in causing mental challenges. To date the technology developed to create “happiness” to humans are just temporary “fix” which ends up being an “addiction”/ attachment that creates more sufferings in the long run. Technology results in humans having excessive focus on SELF !! This is the perfect recipe for destruction !
    All the Buddhas have taught that happiness can only be achieved if we divert our focus away from SELF !

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article. May the wheel of Dharma continue to turn to remove sufferings and benefit many beings!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this is a very interesting article on a very complex matter, our brain. What Mr. Chen said is true, not many will delve into the brain as a cure of our disease, death. Such a different path. To me it seems as though Mr. Chen is trying to map enlightenment within our brain. And I may be wrong but it seems that the basis of the research is based on the brain controlling of our self/mind, using neuroscience to control and affect the mind to be at peace. He mentioned that we are all chemical robots, controlled by our neurons. It would be useful for those with addiction, depression, anger issues, loss of neurological sensations and mental disorders.

    From my understanding, the mental consciousness in not in the brain but rides parallel along our winds. Without training, majority will allow our physical to control this consciousness, affected by the winds or moods. It has been said that our mental consciousness has the ability to travel out of body in deep meditation and returns upon “waking up”. I had read of stories where the body must be carefully kept or else the consciousness will not be able to enter. It is this consciousness that takes rebirth, taking with it all the storage bank of implanted “memories” life time after lifetimes. When Mr. Chen’s mentioned the 4th species, robots who are able to function fully as human with faculties, moods and thoughts, I thought of the robot as a vessel for reincarnation. Fanciful thinking.

    Well, Mr. Chen did say the bottlenecks in neuroscience is trying to solve the problem the scientific way which is why he is integrating psychiatry, psychology, sociology, philosophy and divinity school to cover all bases. I do wish him the best in achieving his aim but he himself is not optimistic. Hmm, imagine people being controlled to feel at the mercy of the scientists…

    I think many people are looking to find out what is consciousness is, yet many enlightened beings on the planet have discovered and given much talks and information about it. Wish people would start to look at major religions in the world more like science and much less like superstition, or something created to keep the human race in check.

    🙏🙏🙏Thank you Rinpoche and team for sharing.
    It is inspiring that Chen is able to benefit more people on the research when he realise that the future there will be more mental sickness because of technology.

    Make use of technology to benefit but not to destroy.

    When one has everything in life , in actual fact they felt meaningless in life and yet unhappy.
    When one do not have everything and yet unhappy.
    This is samsara.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    Inspiring yet powerful article and transcript of Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire. He has started an online games company and had accumulated worth of billions yet feeling unhappy and streesful. He eventually decided he had to salvage his own health after experiencing panic attacks. At the peak of his career he decided to put his wealth for something more meaningful. Combined with his Buddhist beliefs, convinced him to study and commit to researching the human brain and to transcend suffering.
    He gave out most of his fortune to support brain research.
    And even gave millions to various causes, including education, charities, healthcare, disaster relief, and poverty relief. He realised at end of the day , wealth is not everything , we should let go , afterall dealth is unpreditable. An example to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    It is alledged that Mr. Chen is speaking from his heart.
    He understands and believes in the teachings of the
    historical Buddha, that “How we are never satisfied or
    happy even if we have everything in the World is excellent’.
    Mr. Chen had even described how he felt during the peak
    of his life when he was on “Top of the world”,
    yet was no where near being happy. This teaching
    is very applicable to people in modern times where
    materialism has always become one with our lives.

    Lord Buddha is a being who attained complete purification
    of Mind, speech and body. To be good followers of Lord
    Buddha, we must mainly concentrate to practice compassion
    and sincerity – showing true geniune kindness to others,
    be less selfish and sharing the sufferings of others.
    We must develop more concern for the welfare of all beings,
    said to be the basic teachings! To implement this, we must
    practice deep meditational and cultivate wisdom,
    and as our wisdom develops our sense of ethics naturally
    grows stronger as the teachings shows.
    Lord Buddha always emphasized a balance of wisdom and
    compassion; as a good brain and a good heart always work
    together! Thank you so much for the sharing and teachings
    Rinpoche!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this powerfully inspiring article. Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire impresses tremendously – he wants to relieve pain and suffering by using science and technology as a means to fix the brain for real happiness and peace. Hence his philanthropy is channelled towards research to find the means in neuroscience to fix the brain.

    However, he had first learned from the teachings of the Buddha how to cope with his great suffering, anxiety and stress when he was at the height of his success in his Shanda internet gaming business. He learned to let go of it all , walk away from it all and find real peace. He became a Buddhist and a fierce advocate of the Buddha’s way of achieving real happiness through achieving inner peace. He learnt from the Buddha that suffering and death (unless we can discover a way to remain immortal) are inevitable but we can develop a mind of peace so that we can transcend suffering even in our last days and moments of life.Hence, he wants to use science and technology to aid in fixing the brain for this.

    He recognises that the traditional top-down approach to achieve a mind of peace through religion, philosophy, sociology has modern-day people responding to it with saying “Show Me”. Hence he has turned to the use of the scientific approach – through neuroscience. He is currently funding research in this field of neuroscience.

    I like his ‘interpretation’ of what we see with our naked eye as “perception”. His thoughts and beliefs are very refreshingly original and yet in sync with the modern mind. He puts across Buddha’s ancient wisdom in ways that the modern world can understand. In fact, he is so much Tsem Rinpoche in his passion to reduce suffering , his putting across Buddha’s teachings for the modern mind to grasp and his endeavours to use methods that the modern mind can relate to.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article and interview transcript for us to learn about this exciting news where Mr. Chen Tianqiao is currently funding the research of neuroscience technology combine with other disciplines from psychiatry, psychology, sociology and philosophy to identify the solutions to cure the suffering of life and relieve the pain in working class society.

    With the wealth accumulated by Chen from his previous online gaming company Shanda, Chen can easily donate his money to the many charity groups and ease the suffering and pain experienced by those unfortunate people, which is a very noble and kind act. However, Chen is truly compassionate and determined to find out the root of the problem in humans’ suffering after Chen realized the Buddha’s teaching about the fact of suffering in life because most people will never be satisfied with what they possess and although many people are capable of earning sufficient wealth to support their living, they continue on to pursue more worldly possessions and short-term happiness without realizing that it will bring more sufferings to them indeed due to increasing attachment, greed and delusions in their minds. With the accumulated delusions in one’s mind unknowingly, one might easily act according to the emotions without rational and optimistic decision which can lead to depression, suicide, killings or life endangering offense.

    Hopefully, the neuroscience research in Chen Institute, funded by Chen, will have new breakthrough very soon so that the method of detection and solution to the problems induced from our brains, can be discovered effectively to help many people who are suffering from depression, anxiety and panic attack. Most importantly, many people can be further saved from suicide by receiving the scientific solutions from Chen Institute instead of ignoring their suffering and pain quietly.

    In the meantime, we can engage in meditation and spiritual practice from the qualified spiritual guides in order for us to stay balanced with harmony and peace in our hectic lifestyle.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    I observed and believe that money doesn’t always guarantee us true love and happiness. Happiness is contentment. It’s always good to keep a balance with spiritual practice to achieve inner peace and true happiness. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this good article.🙏😘

  12. Stella Cheang on Jul 11, 2018 at 6:46 am

    There is no escape of suffering from Samsara. By the compassion of Buddha and all the Bodhisattvas, sentient beings are being taught, guided and blessed with the path to be liberated from this perpetual suffering. May the example of Mr Chen Tianqiao be a wake up call to many who are attached in their selfish ways and let go. Thank you for this sharing.

    When the 16th Karmapa went to attend the opening ceremony of a new Kagyu and Nyingma monastery called Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Nepal, he saw a statue of Dorje Drolo stepping on a figure of a monk who looked similar to Dorje Shugden. The 16th Karmapa was very upset of this depiction of Dorje Drolo as it was not the correct iconography so he ordered this statue to be removed immediately. At the same time, he also made a prophecy that in future people will have to rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Wow, this is so nice to see so many people from all around the world getting connected with Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri, he is an enlightened being who we can take refuge in. We can chant his mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA daily for protection.

    Just because I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama does not make me a bad person

    And does everyone need to agree with the Dalai Lama anyway? He may be the de-facto head of Tibetan Buddhism but he is not my Guru. Its my Guru who gave me the precious Dharma and practices, the Dalai Lama did not. In fact he gave up his Guru and broke his samaya with his Guru who so compassionately taught him and instigated the escape out of Tibet to save his life. Is that gratefulness?? When will the Dalai Lama lift the ban on authentic enlightened Dorje Shugden and restore unity?

    A Sad State of Affairs

    So we already know about the recent self-created scandals that the CTA are currently dealing with, but these scandals are just the tip of the iceberg. All is not well in the Tibetan settlements and the CTA has worked hard to keep it under wraps, fearful that the international community may stop financially supporting an administration that has failed their people so badly.

    The latest version of Tsem Rinpoche’s biography is done so well, especially the ebook, we can flip it like a real book. Thank you Rinpoche for making the ebook available for us to read for free. I like this biography because there are many photos so it is not boring to read at all. Tsem Rinpoche’s life story is very inspiring. It’s a story about how we can turn our bad experiences into something positive to help others and at the same time to heal ourselves.

    Buton Rinchen Drub was born in 1290, in western Tibet area of Tsang . As a gifted young boy ,he displayed all the extraordinary behaviour of a high incarnated Lama. Learning ancient Sanskrit language, and by then had studied with many great masters and Abbots of his time, as his tutors. He also received additional tantric transmissions and empowerments from many other teachers . He studied Sanskrit poetry and grammar as well from numerous teachers as well. Amazing he could somehow able to perceive the holy face of Manjushri directly and to engage in conversation with him. Later years he gave teachings and ordination to a number of students. Soon he began to compose his own works and wrote the famous book, the History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. He remains to this day one of the most important Tibetan historians and Buddhist writers in the history of Buddhism and Tibet. His collections works have been well-known by all the schools of Buddhism in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of a great master.

    The Racetrack Playa, or The Racetrack, is a scenic dry lake feature with “sailing stones” that leave linear “racetrack” imprints. It is located above the northwestern side of Death Valley, in Death Valley National Park, Inyo County, California, U.S.

    The phenomenon of “Sailing Rocks” refers to rocks that move, leaving trails differing in both direction and length. Rocks that start next to each other may travel parallel for a time, before one abruptly changes direction to the left, right, or even back the direction it came from. Trail length also varies – two similarly sized and shaped rocks may travel uniformly, then one could move ahead or stop in its tracks.

    No one has seen or filmed the rock moving, it still remains a mystery how these rocks, some as heavy as a human move.

    Teresa Hsu who is also known as the Mother Teresa of Singapore is 112 years old. Even though very old, Teresa Hsu still looks alert and full of life. She is always laughing and she believes this is her secret to longevity.

    Teresa Hsu went to study nursing when she was 47 years old having witnessed the suffering of the wounded during World War II. After getting her qualification, she travelled around Europe to help the sick and needy. Later, she went back to Singapore and founded the Home for the Aged Sick in Singapore.

    I think her secret to longevity is to always focus out and care for others. She is doing so much good work to help others which give her a great sense of satisfaction and true happiness. If we don’t want to end up a bitter and miserable old person, we have to start focusing out like Teresa Hsu.

    Shark’s fin soup is a delicacy in Chinese culture. If you can afford to eat sharks’s fin soup, it means you are rich. In a way, it is a symbol of status.

    Even though highly priced, shark’s fin has no nutritional value at all. Up to 100 million sharks are killed every year to make this celebratory exquisite soup. Due to the high demand for shark’s fin, the world’s shark population has declined as much as 75%.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind.

    1 years 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
