The Dalai Lama Just Launched a Website to Help You Achieve Inner Peace

Dear friends around the world,

I have always respected His Holiness the Dalai Lama although we may not share the same religious views, the amount of effort and work His Holiness has contributed towards spreading the Buddha Dharma is undeniable.

His Holiness travels around the world extensively to teach, and one of the most frequently preached topics is compassion. Wherever His Holiness the Dalai Lama goes, he would always promote world peace, to integrate with each other, to live together harmoniously, to respect and love each other. Through His Holiness’s actions, it is clear that he is no other than Avalokiteshvara.

I rejoice that this new website has been launched as it will benefit sentient benefits, may His Holiness the Dalai Lama live long and continue to teach the Dharma.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

The Dalai Lama Just Launched a Website to Help You Achieve Inner Peace

The Pope isn’t the only holy figure reaching the masses in cyberspace.

With the help of Paul Ekman, a psychologist who consulted on the 2015 Pixar film “Inside Out,” and the data visualization firm Stamen Design, the Dalai Lama has launched a new website meant to give people a map for understanding their feelings. It’s called the “Atlas of Emotions.”

“When we wanted to get to the New World, we needed a map,” Ekman recalled the Dalai Lama telling him, according to the New York Times. So the psychologist was tasked with devising a similar guide for navigating our internal worlds — of fear, disgust, enjoyment, sadness, and anger.

Those five emotions are by no means exhaustive, but according to the survey of 248 scientists Ekman conducted, they covered the full spectrum in a way that was easiest to understand.

The survey also yielded insights into how those emotions work, such as where they come from and how people tend to deal with them. Those findings were then turned into the Atlas of Emotions, an interactive map that lets people click through the five emotional “continents” to learn more about them.

HHDLNewWeb002

Once you dive into a specific continent, a sidebar appears giving you the choice to learn more about that emotion’s states, actions, triggers, and mood.

Each state is divided along a continuum of intensity. Enjoyment, for example, ranges from sensory pleasure (like the texture of a juicy steak or the beauty of an art exhibit) all the way up to ecstasy, which Ekman’s research defines here as “Rapturous delight. A state of very great happiness, nearly overwhelming.”

HHDLNewWeb003

Clicking through, users then learn about how they can express that state of emotion in their behavior. People experiencing ecstacy can maintain, savor, or indulge the experience. People experiencing compassion, meanwhile, can engage, exclaim, savor, or seek more.

One of the helpful features of the Atlas is that users get a list of sample triggers for that emotion. People derive different forms of enjoyment from spending time with family, eating chocolate cake, or volunteering in their community, among many others.

The experience ends with the final mood produced by the emotion, which, in enjoyment’s case, is elation. And so the breakdown goes with the four other emotions.

HHDLNewWeb004

The Dalai Lama reportedly paid Ekman at least $750,000 to compile the research behind the comprehensive, user-friendly guide. He thinks it’s necessary for cultivating compassion.

The website maintains that having a deep emotional awareness is vital for living proactively, instead of in a reactionary state.

“The goal of the Atlas of Emotions,” it reads, “is to help people become aware of the impulse to act before acting and then choose whether to engage, and if so how to engage.”

    Thank you Dalai Lama for creating such an interesting website of human’s feeling. I think we human most of the times are confused with our feeling and with such website it will help us recognise our state of mind and then learn to control them. I think it is a tool to learn and discover about ourselves.

  2. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 26, 2016 at 12:13 am

    I hope this website can genuinely help others many people to understand their emotions and help them develop an insight into their mind and emotions. It sounds really like a roadmap that one can discover about oneself.

    Rejoice …His Holiness The Dalai Lama launched a website to help achieve inner peace ,to benefit all sentient beings.The Dalai Lama even paid Ekman a psychologist at least $750,000 to compile the research for cultivating compassion. Thats truly amazing.The psychologist was tasked with devising a similar guide for navigating our internal worlds — of fear, disgust, enjoyment, sadness, and anger. The new website meant to give people a map for understanding their feelings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news ,May Rinpoche and His Holiness the Dalai Lama live long and continue to teach the Dharma.

  4. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 3, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on how HH Dali Lama has launched a website to help us achieve inner peace.

    In his great compassion to reach out to all of us and help us overcome our negative afflictive emotions, the root cause of our suffering, HH the Dalai Lama has worked with some of the greatest social scientists, neurologists and psychologists of the world to explore the Mind, under the body of research and knowledge now known as Mind-Science or the Science of the MInd. He has in actual fact been introducing Buddhist psychology, based on Lord Buddha’s teachings to the world of today( which prime focus is on empirical studies and observation as scientific methods) in a way that this modern world can understand and relate to.

    In most recent times, after endless discussions,between the Dalai Lama and Paul Ekman, a pre eminent internationally renowned psychologist, the latter was tasked with devising a guide or map(similar to the map that had been designed to guide explorers of the New World) for navigating our internal worlds — of fear, disgust, enjoyment, sadness, and anger.
    Thus the new website created by Ekman, with much guidance, input and advice from HH Dalai Lama, was born – the Atlas of Emotions, an interactive map that lets people click through the five emotional “continents” to learn more about them – how these emotions work, such as where they come from and how people tend to deal with them.

    Click open a specific continent, a sidebar appears giving you the choice to learn more about that emotion’s states, actions, triggers, and mood.
    I have scanned through the various states of the emotion of anger , and I agree fully with this website saying that having a deep emotional awareness is vital for living proactively, instead of in a reactionary state. We have to be proactive and not let ourselves be controlled by a negative emotion and slide all the way down with it. For example, knowing the triggers and the states of anger from mild annoyance to full blown uncontrollable rage, I will proactively intervene and prevent it from escalating to destructive harmful levels.

    The goal of the Atlas of Emotions,” it reads, “is to help people become aware of the impulse to act before acting and then choose whether to engage, and if so how to engage.” Yes, as soon as the impulse arises, and we are aware , we can choose to stop and not engage or engage in a positive way to bring care for others into the equation.

    Thank you Your Holiness for conceiving this invaluable map of emotions. Thank you Paul Ekman for designing it. This is so very helpful to help everyone of us navigate our emotional way through daily life and attain inner peace.

  5. Chris Chong on Aug 31, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this new with us. The Dalai Lama had certainly did a good work by setting up this website for the public to discover their emotions in more details. By truly understanding their own emotions, they will be able to be aware of their emotional change and they have a better chance of controlling it. Letting our emotions run wild is not good for us and the people around us because we might hurt them with our speech or actions.

    With our emotions under controlled, we will be able to keep our composure in any circumstance and this can avoid many unnecessary conflicts and this means more peace in our daily lives.

    Humbly,
    Chris Chong

  6. Carmen Koo on Aug 29, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    Having this website will allow people to understand why we feel the emotions that we feel, which constantly clouds our judgement. There are 5 “continents” of emotions which the website allows one to look into and understand – anger, fear, enjoyment, disgust, sadness. I feel these are the five main categories of feelings that we feel, and are closely related and dependant on other feelings and emotions that we may or may not recognise within us that falls into this basic category of emotions.

    Basically, this website, explains Buddhism in a more tech savvy way, if you would call it.. And it lets us look into our minds to recognise these feelings and emotions that come cropping up before we allow it to consume us.

    The fact though, that daily, we jump from one emotion to another, back and forth, shows that inherently, these emotions have no permanence in our lives and therefore we should not prioritise it and let it take over us. Instead we should also learn about our mind, and that we are able to control these emotions from arising, and affecting us.

    Thank you for sharing this, and thank you to His Holiness the Dalai Lama for finding such contemporary methods to bring peace to all.

    As stated in the Article, the Dalai Lama paid US$750,000- to compile a research for a user-friendly guide for cultivating Compassion. With the help of Paul Ekman, a psychologist, the Dalai Lama has launched a new Website called “Atlas of Emotions”, whereby the Psychologist was tasked with devising a guide in the navigating the internal World of its fear, disgust, enjoyment, sadness and anger. These five emotions were said to be by no means exhaustive through the survey done by Paul Ekman and his 248 scientist surveyors. They covered the full spectrum of the survey done in a way that was easiest to understand. The survey also yielded insights into how those emotions work, where they come from and how people tend to deal with them. All those findings were then turned into the “Atlas of Emotions”, and become an interactive map that let people ‘click’ through the five emotional “continents” to learn more about them. The goal of the “Atlas of Emotions” is to help people become awareof the impulse to act before acting. And then choose whether to engage, and if so how to engage! Famous for his ever smiling face and deep-hearted messages of compassion, altruism and peace, We greatly rejoice in the launching of Dalai Lama’s new website to benefit all sentient beings. May His Holiness live a very long life to continue teaching Dharma to all sentient beings. Om Mani Padme Hung.

    It’s an interesting website about our five emotions. It has really shown a clear picture on how our emotion can be triggered and what the reactions we usually have. We can see that when we get angry, we might do destructive actions to others e.g. scream or yell, quarrel, insult, or even resort to physical force. We might also do hurtful things to ourselves like suppress the anger to avoid feeling it or simmer it until it gradually builds up in us.

    This would be a useful tool to people who always find themselves in rage or in great fear most of the time. It seems uncontrollable to certain people not to react immediately to things that happen around them. The triggers of emotion could be of past experience, our own perceptions or beliefs. What do I do when I’m in fear? How intense it would be, am I just nervous, desperate or in terror? What is the trigger? What perception or belief I have that triggers? If we can be more aware each time we get emotional, we will gradually learn more about our emotional world. Only when we truly conscious, accept ourselves, then we can choose the wiser response and not just react to situation unconsciously. This is really a great website to create awareness, to learn to treat ourselves and others better and finally come to be at peace with ourselves.

    Who would pay USD750,000 to develop a tool that does not generate money for themselves and is not for their own use? Only a real compassionate person will do it with the motivation to benefit others. H.H Dalai Lama travels around the world to give teachings to people even though he is already very old, with this newly launch website to help people to understand their emotions can reach even more people. How kind.

    Our emotions are very much dependent on the external factors. For example, good food, good companions make us happy; when people is not treating us the way we want to be treated, we are upset or disappointed; when someone or something we like is no longer with us, we are sad. After knowing what are the factors contribute to our emotions, how do we deal with it? Do we continue to look for external factors that brings us positive feelings or do we find ways so that our emotions are not dependant on external factors?

    To me, it is more important to have our emotions independent on external factors. Learning Dharma and doing meditation has helped a lot in breaking this dependency. There are many teachings in this blog helping us to break that dependency. As soon as our emotion is not dependant on external factor, we achieve inner peace.

    Fear: “A shy or timid person. This personality type is likely to avoid risks and uncomfortable situations. Timid people may perceive the world as full of difficult situations”.

    Basically this describes myself.
    The website is really good and very accurate. Since i have more experience with the emotions of fear than the others, i can say that the triggers, moods and states are very accurate as i have experienced them.

    This website might be a coincidence, but last week i decided that i had to start trying my best and try to tame my mind and over come the fear, as this emotion is leading me nowhere in life. Actually it has always held me back. Im trying my best now, and really hope I can succeed.

    This post is perfect and very helpful. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/apply-this-when-your-emotions-get-in-the-way.html
    (Thanks KarenChong for the link and Thanks Rinpoche for posting it).

    Basically i have been a glass for most of my life, its now time to become a lake.

    PS – This blog has been a great source of help.

      Hi Elton,
      Glad to see you here and that you found this post helpful.

      Since you are interested in Dorje Shugden, you may want to read this article: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/benefits/miracles/overcoming-my-limitations . Karen (yes, the Karen who shared the link on blog chat) was a timid person and had a lot of fear and insecurities. Her practice of Dorje Shugden has helped her find a positive change.

      The journey to tame our mind is not an easy one, but I believe Dorje Shugden will be of much help 🙂

      Hope to see more comments from you on this blog and http://www.dorjeshugden.org 🙂

      Regards,
      Pastor Shin

        Thank you Pastor Shin for always being there and ready to help. I really appreciate it. I read Karen`s story and the way she changed when she met Rinpoche and started Dorje Shugden is amazing. It sure is encouraging seeing someone who was like me and was able to change for the better. Thanks again Pastor Shin, and thank you Karen for sharing your story, it really helped me when I read it.

    感谢仁波切的分享与教诲,

    很开心知道尊贵的第14世达赖喇嘛尊者开启了这一个,让我们寻找内心的宁静的一个网站,在现在忙碌的都市人生活里,每天都在有形与无形中的压力中徘徊,内心的那一份空洞与彷徨,让我们都早已经忘记了,我们常言道的那一份“最初”的心,也就是内心的宁静,当我们内心无法宁静下来的时候,其实会让我们无法专注与迷失。

    感谢尊者透过设立一个网页来弘扬佛法,这将更能够的利益到很多很多的人,因为我们这一代,早就不像以前的人们一样,常常往佛堂跑修行或听闻佛法的习惯,我们这一代有时间也都只是在网络世界中游览,然而在网上学习佛法也让忙碌的都市人能够更容易地接触到佛法,就像尊贵的第25世詹杜固仁波切的这个博客一样,帮助与利益着很多很多的人。

    祈愿每一位佛法上师网上佛法事业增长,利益一切有情众生

    谢谢

    Most people don’t really discern the cause and origin of their emotions. They conduct with emotions and in the end, thing goes worst. We always say, “calm down”, which is telling someone to simmer down from intense emotions. Calmness is always important for us when we confront with unexpected situations.

    “A calm, balanced frame of mind is necessary to evaluate and understand our changing emotions. Calmness ideally is a baseline state, unlike emotions, which arise when triggered and then recede.” This is very true.

    The website is very beneficial and it may help us to know more what really emerges our emotions. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this!

  13. KarenC on Aug 24, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    This is one very interesting website that helps us to understand our very own emotion, from the trigger points of how these emotion arose, the state of mind when we’re in particular emotion, what are the actions that may come along with the emotions, and how our moods get affected by that emotions, etc. We all know most of the time our emotions are actually navigating our lives and a lot of decisions were made due to emotions.

    The 5 continents of emotion on the website are more of negative: Fear, Anger, Disgust, Sadness, Enjoyment. Enjoyment may look positive to many, however it can also be negative because it may arose from attachment, desire, greed and possessiveness, just to name a few. Emotions arose from our mind. Everything arises from the mind. What Rinpoche has been emphasizing on His teachings are always about how to train our mind and transform to be better, which is why we are all here in Dharma to tame our monkey mind that makes us suffer.

  14. William Chua on Aug 24, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    In this day and age, people are sceptics in myths and beliefs or even magic. People will believe and follow when there are strong evidence to substantiate a fact. So, I believe that the whole reason the Dalai Lama paid Ekman to develop a guide based on fact and science. This is a great way to explain feelings in scientific ways and the experience. Definitely will attract the geeks and seekers to learn more about Buddhism and thus spread the teachings. Smart move Dalai Lama on modernising Buddha’s teachings.

  15. HelenaC on Aug 21, 2016 at 10:41 pm

    Interesting!!! The commissioning of $750,000 to Paul Edman to compile the research behind the comprehensive, user-friendly guide Its a great idea as we have a clearer guide and explanation on our emotion’s state. It will benefit many of us as well. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    • HelenaC on Aug 21, 2016 at 10:43 pm

  16. Stella Cheang on Aug 20, 2016 at 1:37 pm

    Knowing that Dalai Lama is reaching out to patrons of the world digitally by moving the teaching of the mind into cyber-format is indeed encouraging. Compassion is a vast topic where Dalai Lama is a highly qualified teacher as he is the acclaimed emanation of Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig or Kuan Yin). The commissioning of Paul Ekman, the psychologist who consulted the 2015 Pixar film “Inside Out” is a good idea probably because of the way he had successful layout the complexity of the mind in a simplistic manner in the 2015 film. As Dalai Lama put it, it is a map of our mind that we need to help us navigate ourselves away from the afflictive emotions. We rejoice in Dalai Lama’s effort to digitalize Buddha Dharma’s teaching and am glad that Kechara is already working on this direction for some time already. It is remarkable to witness erudite masters like His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama tirelessly bring benefits to everyone in the new age using breaking away from the traditional ways and methods. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

  17. Pastor KH Ng on Aug 19, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I rejoice that His Holiness The Dalai Lama launched a website to help achieve inner peace. This will benefit many people. I agree with Rinpoche that His Holiness is none other than Avalokitesvara.

    I even believe that His religious views that differs from Rinpoche’s, is also to benefit others in these degenerate times; where Manjushri and Avalokitesvara seems to be at odds but they are actually working together like the mother and father who will never hurt their children but benefit them; even though the children may think their parents have contradictory views.

    Thank You Rinpoche for showing us what respect and the middle way is all about.

    Pastor KH Ng.

    The Yant tattoos have developed over the centuries under the influence of several different religious.They have their reasons to do it as it represents vows and commitments, blessings, kindness and love. It is a spiritual method to help someone become a better person.
    From this article we can see most people are seeking for mundane help which is quite common but what most important is how one would be able to transform their mind for better and ultimately achieve liberation from suffering.Thank you very much for this interesting article and video for exploring another type of unique spiritual tradition.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Surprise to know our colon contain of poison due to unbalance diet of food intake. It really true, our body is often conceded toxins as a result of an unhealthy food consumed. However i think it is best to keep a food journal correctly to maintain and track our food intake.

    It is really important to eliminate waste from your body every day to maintain a good lifestyle and stay healthy. Hoping to keep the simple ingredients in mind and help many to keep their colon healthy.

    Thank you very much for the article sharing a great fact that we need to take it
    seriously to save life.

    A very good choice to place a Buddha statue there to bless the beings that are around that area. Many people had lost their lives during the tsunami in 2004 and I believe that area will be full of the spirits of the people that lost their lives during disaster.
    It good that Sri Lanka has since built and dedicated a Buddha statue for the deceased and to plant the seeds of enlightenment for all who visit and see it. Thank you for sharing nice article with us.

    Winston Churchill was a British politician, military officer and writer who did twice served as the prime minister of Great Britain. Churchill did helped to lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Soviet Union during World War II. I did not know of his dark side till this post. Winston Churchill was in fact a clear racist and a stubborn imperialist. To many historians Churchill was seen as at the most brutal and brutish end of the British imperialist spectrum. Churchill’s imperialism was motivated only by an altruistic desire to elevate the putatively lower races. Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin. He hate Indians recording to him they are a beastly people with a beastly religion. These are another side to Churchill’s politics and career that should not be forgotten amid the endless parade of eulogies.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of this great statesman with a darker side behind.

    Thank you H.E. Gyara Rinpoche for spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many thousands Tibetans in Tibet . H.E. Gyara Rinpoche an erudite scholar recently gave Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation to thousands of monks and lay people in Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has claimed that Dorje Shugden practice is a minor practice on many occasions. This is not true at all, looking at the pictures tells all. Thousands of Tibetans gathers at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, listening to Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings as well as the Guhyasamaja initiation clearly has proven it. He also gave commentary on Dorje Shugden’s qualities, history to strengthen the people’s faith in Dorje Shugden and explaining about the controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news and may more people have knowledge and understanding of Dorje Shugden . May the ban on it be lifted soon.

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.

    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
