Mission Stardust

Sep 16, 2012 | Views: 1,027

I think I was around 12 years old back in Howell, New Jersey on a lazy Saturday afternoon when I flicked on channel 9 and this ‘strange’ 1967 Italian science fiction movie MISSION STARDUST came on. I watched a few minutes and thought I don’t like it very much and went to finish washing the dishes. About 15 mins later, I returned to watching the movie out of sheer boredom without anything else to do. As the movie progressed, I was like this is cool. I really started to love the movie. I regretted missing the first 15 minutes!! I watched it to the end and didn’t miss another moment and loved it!!

Commander Thora from Arkon was coming to earth to find a scientist who can cure her compatriot Crest’s disease. She meets earthlings who become friends and help her. They take off in a smaller ship to earth and come across many obstacles, greedy enemies, and numerous problems. The gadgets used are so cool. I use to draw these gadgets and make them out of cardboard/paper and play with them. The ship they fly in is so retro. The robot on the spaceship is very unusual-vulnerable yet powerful. I love the strange haunting music, mediocre acting and exciting plot. Since watching this movie based on Perry Rhodan decades ago, I wanted to watch it again. I am a fan. And literally decades later, I found it again for sales on Amazon. I have since watched it many times over and really enjoy it although a low-budget film, it’s excellent. I love the Italian actress Essy Persson who plays Thora to the hilt. She’s strong, arrogant but in the end becomes good friends with the earthlings she despised in the beginning. Lang Jeffries plays Astronaut Perry Rhodan and our hero. He is good too. Enjoy the movie!!

Joy, Shin, David and Andrew got together and had this Mission Stardust Ship and Commander Thora Doll made for me as a memory of one of my favorite science fiction movies pictured above. I asked them to do it and they did. When you do search online for the spaceship and Thora to purchase, it’s impossible to find. So they had an artist make the spaceship and they made the doll with outfit and all. They had the outfit sewn up to look just like Commander Thora! They found this figurine that closely resembles Thora. Wow. How creative and how well done. I really love creative gifts like this. Now this Ship and doll are in my collection with my other science fiction memorabilia in my bedroom. Do you like what they made here pictured?

Thanks Joy, Shin, David and Andrew for this fantastic gift. I really appreciate it very much. I love the spaceship and Thora.

    Rinpoche really loves fiction stories, he intro a lot space or alien movies haha. This story is about Commander Thora from Arkon was coming to earth to find a scientist who can cure her compatriot Crest’s disease. I thought aliens from other galaxies always advance than earthlings. But then I realize its about making connection with others, become friends and help each other. Along life journey we come across many obstacles, greedy enemies, and numerous problems and we always have support from each other, that matter.

    The effort that Joy, Shin, David and Andrew put up are so touching ! It’s considered as a handmade stuffs, it’s impossible to get in other places. They are so loving, and I could imagine how joyful was Rinpoche when he saw the gifts, big smiles.

  2. Fong on Aug 12, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    What I gathered is that we must not dismiss something off hand when we first encounter it. It may surprise us as the movie surprised Rinpoche back then. We have to learn to keep an open mind.

    And, it was really caring of Joy, Shin, David and Andrew to go to such lengths to make it for Rinpoche. They must be very resourceful and persistent to make the set when the items were not available commercially. _/|\_

    The essence of training in Guru Devotion is to cultivate the art of pleasing the guru in order to make him always happy and comfortable. What our caring fellow-members have done not only reflect guru devotion in words, but in action and deeds too, perfectly in this respect. Just like Rinpoche did in his young days in serving his gurus, he was always eveready on his toes standing by to serve and make his main guru, Zong Rinpoche happy and comfortable always. This is what I think our fellow-members did to put Rinpoche’s teaching into actions in this respect! It is said and proven that the practice of sincere Guru Devotion invariably results in rapid spiritual growth. Good work fellas, please keep up with the good practice!

  4. HelenaC on Sep 21, 2012 at 11:53 am

    This is an awesome gift from the team to Rinpoche, It shows the sincerity and how devote they are to our Guru. Its is inspring 🙂
    It is wonderful that Rinpoche shared this movie with us to let us know about his childhood’s love and make us feel closer to our Guru although we can’t meet him often 🙂 I really appreciate it.
    Its also remind me of my childhood alien’s movie The “V” hahahaha…i love the watch all this unknown beings alot hehehe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your new toy with us 🙂
    Thanks to the team that have made Rinpoche so happy 🙂

  5. Winnie on Sep 19, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    这是一份很用心设计的礼物,挑选出来的洋娃娃也很美,这整套做得很精致。他们的用心是值得赞赏的。

  6. Carmen Lin on Sep 19, 2012 at 11:20 am

    By looking at the gift, we can know how much effort and sincerity has been put into making these gifts. *Salute* to all who made this space ship and Thora for Rinpoche. Watching this movie produced back in 60’s even without advanced technologies, they were able to produce movie with so many effects, I was amazed. Even though it was nothing like Star Wars or Avatar, without a doubt if nothing was produced back then, we would not be watching anything like we have been watching nowadays. By the way, Thora is the most sexy alien I’ve ever seen, (^O^) .. Rejoice for the movies and the gifts ↖(^▽^)↗

  7. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 18, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Anything that is done with sincerity is always beautiful. Sincerity is shown through the efforts, time, energy, thoughts and resources that one needs to put in to make the gifts possible.

    This gifts, hence, are beautiful.

    I rejoice for the efforts that Joy, Shin, David and Andrew put in to make this gift possible. And I am happy that Rinpoche loves this gift!

  8. Yvonne Yap on Sep 18, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Very nice,creative and unique, this doll we cant find outside, is not for sales : )
    We can see here, team work very important ! nothing is impossible!!

  9. Junior on Sep 18, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    What a meaningful and thoughtful sincere gift.Well done and rejoice to all of you!

  10. deborah on Sep 18, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    It’s cool to go back in time like that and see how far we have progressed with the latest effects in movies these days.
    aside to david & gang – well done on the gift.

  11. Ong Moh Mei on Sep 18, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    I do love toy figurines. But I found it hard to concentrate on watching the movie. The only scene I recall is Thora changing clothes behind the glass 🙂 How film making has progressed over the decades go to show how people’s mind have changed. Just as film making needs to adapt to suit the modern day today, Rinpoche has come up with various creative and contemporary methods to teach and spread Dharma to cater for the people of this time. Why? Because it has always been about the people, it has always been about others.

  12. Irene Lim on Sep 18, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Love and devotion can accomplish many wonderful things and are proven here by the 4-member team. Lovely….

  13. Julia Tan on Sep 18, 2012 at 12:05 am

    Joy, Andrew, David and Shin did a lot of research looking for people who can make this 2 toys for Rinpoche. I remember they were extremely happy when someone told them they willing to make it. The Thola doll looks just exactly like the Thola in the movie! I think it’s amazing. Just like William said, nothing is imposible. It’s about how much effort we put in to make it happen. Thank you Joy, Andrew, David and Shin.

  14. lewkwanleng on Sep 17, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    This is the first time I hear about Mission Stardust.. LOL… but from the photo, the model looks VERY nice! They are very detail and the painting is very careful.

  15. DR on Sep 17, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Made here by our own people? No way! This is so well made. Wow!I was scrolling through and looked at the photo before I read what Rinpoche wrote and I thought that either Joy, Shin, Andrew or David must have bought them online. Well done people!

  16. yenpin on Sep 17, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    很特别的礼物。好用心。

    要有一颗真诚的心,任何事情都可以办得到的。

    Joy,Shin,David,Andrew用心制作这么特别供养的礼物给予仁波切。,而是一份很用心的礼物

    也很特别,娃娃很可爱精致

  17. Cynthia Ng on Sep 17, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    呵呵呵。。没想过玩具也可以定制的如此像样,抱着一颗真诚的心和态度,任何事情都可以办得到的。

    感谢Joy,Shin,David,Andrew如此用心供养特别的礼物给予仁波切。重点不在于礼物有多贵重以及大小,而是出于一份真诚之心。

    这个娃娃玩偶确实很可爱精致 :)

  18. judy lam on Sep 17, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    It’s incredible that Joy, Shin, Andrew and David (and not forgetting Pat of KSA) can assemble the story of Mission Stardust by ‘creating’ the lookalike of the Commander Thora and the spaceship. These people possess the love, creativity and the determination to make this “mission possible”. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  19. mitra on Sep 17, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Wonderful job.joy shin david and andrew rejoice for team.this very wonderful offering to rinpoche.

  20. Pastor Yek Yee on Sep 17, 2012 at 5:19 am

    I watched this movie in Rinpoche’s blog, there are many moral knowledge in this movie, there are also many part which I not really understand. I like this movie because it is out of my age. I found out something very new and fresh to me.

    I curious wonder someone stayed in other planet who visit our earth? 

    I believed they are always around us, only may be we cannot see, find out them. ET such be with us now, may be...?I think...

    The star movie always make me think out of the box, excepted human being there are many sentient beings in this uniserve.Let's us go to explore it!!!! 

  21. Sharon Saw on Sep 17, 2012 at 4:05 am

    Thank you for sharing this great story… i rejoice for Joy, Shin, David and Andrew’s resourcefulness, creativity and effort to create this special and very personal gift for Rinpoche. As other comments have mentioned, it really shows that nothing is impossible. If it doesn’t exist, make it! This is a great practical Dharma teaching. Thank you!

    Also thank you for the link to the movie and sharing yet another glimpse of Rinpoche’s childhood… as i was watching the movie, I was thinking that in 50 years time, people then will be looking back at our TV shows today like CSI and think how archaic…. another sign of impermanence!

  22. Pastor Susan on Sep 17, 2012 at 4:03 am

    Joy, Shin, David and Andrew did a real good job with the spaceship and Thora! 🙂

    Well, in regards to the movie, I watched it with Moh Mei, Sharon and Li Kim. The opening scene with the very strange music made us laughed. it is a very unusual movie… i guess they don’t make it like this anymore. I must admit if not because of Rinpoche, i would not have ever picked this movie to watch.

    I can see why this movie would have been very popular when it first came out. It has spaceship, sexy female alien, travelling to another planet, africa, gadgets,.. oh and the special effects must be of the first generation. 🙂 It was quite good when the alien made the gun disappeared.

    Rinpoche, thank you for sharing this movie and a part of Rinpoche’s early years with us.

  23. Lai on Sep 17, 2012 at 3:27 am

    Thanks Rinpoche sharing this Retro movie, the opening remind me my favorite 1st generation Ultraman tv show.
    and also thanks to Joy, Shin, David and Andrew for the sincere gifts to Rinpoche. it is not about how much money it costs, but how much care and sincerity.

  24. Chris Tan on Sep 17, 2012 at 2:42 am

    If Rinpoche didn’t tell us, i though the gift was bought from the shop. Hehe… Its really done perfectly. Joy, Shin, David and Andrew are very thoughtful and get thing done for Rinpoche without Rinpoche telling to do it. i rejoiced for them to put their effort from time and do research to get this special gift for Rinpoche. It show how care and how devoted they to Rinpoche.

    It also recalls me in one of the 50 verses of Guru Devotion.
    “What need is there to say much more. Do whatever pleases your Guru and avoid doing anything he would not like. Be diligent in both of these.”

    Nothing is impossible to achieve. If we really want to get something, than we must put the effort and get the way to do it. Like what William said “When there is a will, there is a way.” Very true…

  25. Datuk May on Sep 17, 2012 at 2:17 am

    The movie is great, a bit of all kinds of drama, from good guys to bad guys and some innocent guys who got caught and killed without knowing why. There was car chasing, soldiers fighting and romantic scenes. And also how friendship can be created among different “kinds” of beings.

    Although earthlings are supposed to be 5 levels lower than the aliens from Akron, the same sufferings are inevitable, growing old and dying from diseases. How right the Buddha is and that there is sufferings everywhere.

    Greed is also shown as the ingredient to causing great harm to others.

    Besides having enjoyed the movie, it is wonderful that Joy, Shin, David and Andrew created commander Thora and the spaceship so very beautifully for Rinpoche. Thank you.

  26. Li Kim on Sep 17, 2012 at 2:11 am

    Watching the video was entertaining in more ways than one. The whole production from visuals to sounds was not merely nostalgic but it puts us in a time to connect to Rinpoche’s childhood – like time travel back in time – to be slightly dramatic.

    But think about it, as I watched the video I did laugh because of the sheer fact it was made so differently but I enjoyed how I could watch something which Rinpoche watched when he was 12…

    In addition, after seeing the spaceship and Thora, I really appreciate what Joy, Shin, David and Andrew have done to reproduce them. I like the detailed similarities. Thank you all for this.

  27. Karen C. on Sep 17, 2012 at 1:22 am

    With strong determination and guru devotion, the team has made the almost impossible mission possible! What’s worth rejoicing is their tenacity. They really have an eye for art, not only that, they are so resourceful! The doll and her costumes and the spaceship are so well done.

    The point where Thora become good friends with the earthlings she despised in the beginning has taught me not to make hasty judgements on any situation, as they may change in the future. By the way, Thora’s skintight costume looks awesome and it’s back to fashion now:)

  28. Milly on Sep 17, 2012 at 12:58 am

    Its a very thoughtful and loving gift to Rinpoche. The spaceship looks cool. One of a kind gifts are very precious as the giver has put in a lot of time, effort and love to make them.

  29. Leann Lim on Sep 17, 2012 at 12:36 am

    A wonderful gift…so creative of Joy, Shin, David and Andrew, thank you for all your effort. When 1st time saw the photo, i thought the doll and spaceship is ready made and selling in the market, so im quite surprise is custom made by our creative friends. bravoo..

    The storyline of movie make me think about sometimes there is a people think person like us that ‘into’ dharma or we have been poisoning with religious is weird person like my family think im weird like ‘from another planet’. But dharma path just like what Thora go through : come across many obstacles, greedy,enemies ( our self ), and numerous problems. And what ever people think u are alien or from Mars, but what we believe make us go all the ways, this is our spiritual path.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this movie. We always love movie and the meaning behind send to us. May Rinpoche long life and smile always ^^

  30. Girlie OOI on Sep 16, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Andrew Joy and Shin did a wonderful job; They are artistic. Gifts from the heart done with love as an offering to Rinpoche.

  31. adeline woon on Sep 16, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Ok, I have given up watching the movie! I’ve been trying to watch the movie for the last 3 hours and only get to watch the first 17 mins @_@. Anyway, I like what Shin, Joy and David have done. They sure shown a good example of someone who keep their promise and get things done no matter the difficulties, most importantly doing it with such peculiar details. Thank you all for such wonderful gift.

  32. June Kang on Sep 16, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Looking at the gift and how they done it, for initial stage we might think is impossible, however is depends on how much we really want it would change the impossible to possible. Also one person may be difficult to do it but together the job become easy.

    Is a beautiful and special gift. Rejoice!

  33. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 16, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Great work guys to offer such a great and beautiful gift to Rinpoche.

  34. Mei Fong on Sep 16, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    The gifts are special and meaningful. It comes sincerely from their hearts. Great Job.

  35. Gim Lee on Sep 16, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Looking at the gift and reading the blog post, the term “Guru Devotion” came to my mind.

    Why else will any adult take the trouble to recreate the mini spaceship and the main character i.e. Commander Thora?

    Joy, Shin,David and Andrew showed us that they just took on the assignment and went ahead to do it eventhough the task is not an easy one. I rejoice for their efforts; thank you for doing your best serve our Guru.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this classic (1967!) science fiction movie. In my younger days I also like to watch this kind of movies and TV series such as the “Star Trek”, “Twilight Zone” and newer ones like “Battlestar Galactica” and the “X Files”.

  36. tenzin llhamo on Sep 16, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    It is really nice of Joy, Shin, David and Andrew to get these unique figurines for Rinpoche. They are really thoughtful and sincere. Even when they couldn’t get it online, they got someone to do it. It was really nice of them to think of it and offered it to Rinpoche.

    Things done with love and care is truly PRICELESS!

  37. Sock Wan on Sep 16, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Wow, so thoughtful of Joy, Shin, David and Andrew. They even found a doll that looks similar to the actress.

    It is not that Rinpoche wants our gifts, it is merely an avenue given to us by our Guru to gain merits. By giving thoughts and sincerity in fulfilling our Guru’s wishes, we create so much merits that we need in our spiritual practice. Well done and rejoice to all of you!

  38. Joe Ang on Sep 16, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    It’s great to be able to know what show Rinpoche have watched when he was a kid. This is a really retro movie and it’s merchandise, impossible to find any where. This gift is the one and only in the whole wide world. Creative and very sincere gift from the team Joy, Shin David and Andrew. 🙂

  39. Adrian.C on Sep 16, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    Really amazing and meaningful, sincerely gift from Joy, Shin, Davin and Andrew. Rejoice for the hard work team, that put in so much effort to offer this special gift to Rinpoche.

  40. pat on Sep 16, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Congratulations to Joy,Shin,David & Andrew for putting so much time & effort in finding ways to get the spaceship & Thora done. A very meaningful gift from the heart…..

  41. Martin on Sep 16, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    This is such a wonderful offering to Rinpoche by Joy, Shin, David and Andrew. There’s something about Thora and the spaceship on the rocky terrain that is surreal…looks lifelike. I have never seen Mission Stardust before and the only Sci-Fi movies around the same time was Lost In Space with Dr Smith being the irritating but pitiful anti-hero. And of course there was the funny Robot. Dr Smith’s character reflects all the flaws found in human beings, name self centeredness that often created dangerous situations for the Robinsons.

    I like the sound of Mission Stardust’s storyline and definitely would have love to watch it.

  42. nicholas on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    This is indeed a memorable gift which link back to Rinpoche’s childhood favorite science fiction movie.

    It’s so fascinating to collect your favorite movie figuring.

    Great job of Joy, Shin, David and Andrew.
    Nice workmanship with care and sincerity.

  43. li kheng on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    The Thora doll really looks like Essy Persson! It is always amazing how Rinpoche always creates the opportunity for us to learn and grow in creativity and resourcefulness. Joy, Shin, Andrew and David was sharing a little about how they sourced for the costume and artis of spaceship. It was quite an adventure and the sense of achievement they exhibit seem to make every challenge they encounter worthwhile. It was also very sweet to see how happy they were to be able to offer a gift from their effort and heart to Rinpoche.

  44. Shin on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    I am glad the team can offer Thora and the spaceship to Rinpoche. It was fun for us to vote between dolls, discuss material for the suit, and ‘hunt’ for a supplier who can make the spaceship.

    Kechara Saraswati Arts did a great job looking for the material for the suit and sewing the body-fitting suit. We tried a supplier earlier and the custom made figurine was disappointing after much back and forth for about a month 🙁

    Also thanks to Joey Wong and Lily Ng who shared some ideas with us on how to create the doll and spaceship. Choi Sheem, may be we should look into making the ship with lights as you suggested 😛

  45. Paul Yap on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    The spaceship is so neat and cute!

    I remember watching all the robots and spaceship cartons when i was very young and i love them so much, Mission stardust really helps me recall these lost memory…and thanks to the super duper team who found and made all these toys as a wonderful gifts to H.E Tsem Rinpoche.

    Thank you!

  46. David Lai on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I love such posts of Rinpoche’s childhood! It is also really nice to read about his childhood interest because it is warm and it makes us feel closer to Rinpoche. It also makes us feel like we have known Rinpoche for many years. It is always endearing to know just a little bit more about Rinpoche. I look forward to read more.

    It was nice to have these figurines available for Rinpoche. But really the credit should go to Joy who found a maker that could make the toy for an affordable price and the Thora doll was very much Shin’s efforts of sourcing for the doll, getting the costume sewn and matching accessory boots.

  47. Joy on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    Mission Stardust was a real “MISSION”. It was not available online so only way is to make it!!! With months of research and finding the right people with skills to do it and a few rejections… finally we found the right people. Some credit thanks to Pat of KSA who helped in making the clothing and Craft Haven that helped with the spaceship really really fast!

    This assignment given by Rinpoche to us I feel was to show us that nothing is impossible to do if you really want to do it, you are persistent and do not give up and work together as a team to make it happen. Even if one of two people in the team does not pull their weight, and if it is up to you to do it then you do and do it because the objective was to make someone’s day in this case it is for our Guru… hence what more can we say.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting assignment, from it i learnt much internally.

  48. Andrew Boon on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    This Mission Stardust post is super neat! Short and sweet. Another post that reveals a little more about Rinpoche which pleases the voyeurs in all of us.

    It is also amazing how Rinpoche can recount in such detail something from Rinpoche’s childhood in such clarity!

    It was indeed a very challenging as there was never any merchandise made from this art house movie. All we had to go on was the movie itself and the stills we got from the internet.

    KSA also helped in sewing of the clothes. The even gave Commander Thoro her signature fringe haircut!!!

  49. william on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    I have no idea what this movie is about as I have not heard of it before. But when the gift arrived at Haven for Rinpoche from Andrew, Joy, Shin and David, I was impressed with the doll and spaceship model. It is very nicely done. And it makes me want to watch the movie. The doll does really have a resemblance to the actress.

    Lesson: When there is a will, there is a way. Even though they cannot find the models anywhere, they managed to get a model maker to make it. It shows their commitment to get the job done.

  50. Jace Chong on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Thanks Joy, Shin, David and Andrew for the sincere gifts to Rinpoche.

    The figurine and spaceship is nicely done. I actually looked for them online too, went to a lot of websites that selling toys, and personal collection sites, sent out a few emails but no response.

    It’s amazing that they have put their effort and time to make them, and they look exactly like the ones in the movie. Good job!

    I think offering to our Guru is not about how much money it costs, but how much you want to offer to the Guru, it could be in any form like time and effort and creativeness.

  51. Han on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    What a meaningful and thoughtful sincere gift from Andew, Joy, Shin and David.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post to us.
    Its truly a creative and special gift!

  52. mayy on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Creatively done with love and in the interest of Rinpoche. Knowing very well what Rinpoche likes. And is one of the kind in the world, if I may say so. 🙂
    Well done Joy, Andrew, David and Shin!

  53. lucy yap on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    When we present a gift,we want the gift receiver to feel special and loved.Gifts should be something that are well thought out and show the person receiving them that we care.
    Joy,Shin,David and Andrew showed they care with this thoughtful gift.

  54. Lili ng on Sep 16, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Wow…the spaceship and Thora really looks good…rejoice for the team who put in the effort for this fantastic gifts .anything is possible!

  55. Louise Lee on Sep 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Dear all,

    Some people always say that:” MONEY CAN BUY EVERYTHING THEY WANT! ”

    But from this is differn story. Joy, Shin, David and Andrew, they go everywhere to find and resources.At the end, they found a few people the sew the outfit and craft the spaceship!

    The care is always important ! Teamwork is important !

    Thank you Rinpoche, always give us project to work together!

    🙂

  56. Victor Phang on Sep 16, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Very creative, precious and meaningful gift! Only one unit in this earth since handmade by a few of Rinpoche’s close students.

    A very good example of giving a sincere gift which can’t be judged by how much they spent but the amount of time and effort to deliver it nicely.

    These gifts are real special. Although there were not available for sale, Joy, Shin, David and Andrew made the effort to have them custom made.Rejoice for your team who put in so much thoughts and effort to offer these gifts to Rinpoche.

    This gift was designed and created with much thought, love and care. A true gift that sincerely comes from their hearts.

  59. Siong Woan on Sep 16, 2012 at 11:03 am

    A true and sincere gift is a gift made or purchased with the receiver’s likes and dislikes in mind.
    It is not the cost of the gift but the thoughts that counts.

    This is a lovely gift from a few students who genuinely wanted to offer something which is close to their teacher’s heart.

    Gampopa Sonam Rinchen a Tibetan Buddhist master and was among the most famous disciples of the great Tibetan Kagyu saint Milarepa . Gampopa is credited with establishing the Kagyu path, combining Kadampa Lamrim teachings with the Mahamudra teachings he received from Milarepa. He even combined the Kadam monastic and scholastic traditions with Indian tantric practices, spreading the teachings to Tibet. He was a bhikshu, an accomplished doctor who had a natural talent for medicine as well. His Guru devotion and rapid accomplishment had been an unexpected inspired many. He had trained many of the greatest Kagyu masters of all time. He wrote a number of treatises and founded the Dagpo Kagyu school and Daklha Gampo monastery. Interesting read of a great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Second Dalai Lama, Gyatso (1476–1542),born to a family of yogic practitioners, was identified as the incarnation of the posthumously recognized 1st Dalai Lama, Gendun Drub . He was an extraordinary child at a young seem to recall his previous lives, expressing his wish to return to Tashilhunpo. In later years he spent most his time in meditation, pilgrimage, and giving teachings, developing an enormous following in Tibet. Among the many accomplishments of his life, he is remembered for the construction of Monasteries. Gendun Gyatso passed away, leaving behind many volumes of verse, composition, instructions, and important temples.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Meaningful poems by the 6th Dalai Lama Tsangyang Gyatso . Tsangyang Gyatso was the 6th Dalai Lama. He was an unconventional Dalai Lama that preferred the lifestyle of a crazy wisdom yogi to that of an ordained monk. The 6th Dalai Lama is also well known for his poems and songs that continue till to these days. Its still popular among Tibetan communities in Nepal, India and all across China. If committed and focused, on a simple practice and learning Dharma with that of love and compassion all the way nor matter what happen along the way. Let our thoughts and actions always be spiritual.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Chogyam Trungpa was a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He was recognized for playing a pivotal role in the transmission of genuine Buddhadharma to the West. Simple and meaningful advice by Chogyam Trungpa. Nothing is easy and no short cut to learning Dharma. We have to endure hardship to learn something like Dharma or what ever so. Never give up once we decided to learn and practice. We must face the problems or rather obstacles along the way, there is always a way to over come it with courage.

    Buton Rinchen Drup, 11th Abbot of Shalu Monastery, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. Buton Rinchen Drub is considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers . Shalu Monastery became one of the most renowned and important monastery in Tibet . He had influenced the Gelug and Sakya traditions as well, having helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. He left a legacy worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. That’s is inspiring. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, till to this day. Even after retiring he continued composing a number volumes of commentaries and he wrote the famous book, the “History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. Many Tibetan scholars still utilize his work in their studies which is still continuing to this day, and cannot be underestimated. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a Great Lama.

    Thank you Dr Matthew William King great work done on the research on Dorje Shugden . His research shows that Dorje Shugden had played a central role in both monastic and political life in Mongolia. Zaya Pandita, an accomplished translator, linguist and scholar, Lobsang Tamdin, a prolific author and Mongolian lamas had preserved the tradition of Dorje Shugden through ways as such scholarship and study, and also via active propitiation. Mongolia’s own lamas did independently promoting and encouraging the practice centuries ago. Yet there is still some who claimed Dorje Shugden is a evil spirit. Even though there is clear evidence ,Mongolia’s long history of reliance on this enlightened Protector. Zaya Pandita and Lobsang Tamdin were masters of sutra, tantric adepts, and the peers and equals of Tibetan lamas of their time, they cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. Interesting read article on The Mongol Invention of the Dorjé Shukden and Trülku Drakpa Gyeltsen Literary Corpus (1913-1919) by Dr Matthew William King.
    Thank you with folded hands Zava Damdin Rinpoche for preserving the works for generations to come.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing for more and more people to understand better.

    We are very blessed for being able to learn Buddhism . Learning Dharma and putting into actions remind us of the Buddha’s teachings. The Dharma reveals truths as taught by the Buddha. It also gives us a way to live life that transform our mind and leading us towards achieving enlightenment. Having the opportunity to learn the Buddha’s teachings and cultivate ourselves is indeed very precious. We have to sincerely and consistently practice nor matter what happens and be true to ourselves. The efficaciousness of this all depends on our faith, loyalty and devotion to our Guru. Dharma is beautiful I do agree with it as explained by Rinpoche. Dharma is the moral law combined with spiritual discipline that guides one’s life. And is extremely approachable by everyone and has since changed my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    One of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. The temple of the Choijin Lama is an important example of Chinese-style religious architecture. It is one of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. Hidden among the tallest sky scappers this hidden gem is an architectural wonder. It was the home of Luvsan Haidav Choijin Lama, who is the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan. The State Oracle of Mongolia had a long historic connection with Dorje Shugden. Even took trance of 3 different deities , Nechung, Tsiu Marpo and Dorje Shugden. It is a temple with a lot of old, ancient artifacts as Choijin Lama would go into a trance. After been through historic changes it was reopened as a museum. The Choijin Lama Temple’s history is documented with many religious hardships and interesting happenings. Interesting read and detailed explanation for one to understand better . A must see place when travelling there .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing

    Breaking news the Tribune Journal published December 15, 2017 H H Dalai-lama planning to visit China. Since exile HH the Dalai Lama left Tibet in 1959, returning to China will be a wonderful reunion for many. This potential visit to China by HH the Dalai Lama might lead to those who left their homeland able to visit Tibet again. Millions of Tibetans in Tibet would definitely wish to see Dalai Lama again. The Dalai Lama would be too happy as great memories to see places as such his palace, relatives and so forth. If the return is successful all negative attacks on Dorje Shugden practitioners should cease immediately. There are indeed many benefits if Dalai Lama visit to China as it would clear the doubts of some. May Dalai Lama fondest wish come true soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this news

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.
    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

Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families.

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
