    Buddha was born in Lumbini, Kapilvastu, Nepal.
    Shakyamuni is the origin of Nepal. Shakya cast still following buddha Dharma in Nepal.

    还没正式上学校时,我的二哥就跟我说过佛陀释迦牟尼的故事。印象最深刻的便是佛陀一出世,就说了“天上天下,唯我独尊”,而且行走的7步都生出莲花。那时我也记得佛陀是个王子,但最后选择出家了。

    小时候不明白为什么佛陀要这么做,也没去想过宗教或佛教是怎么一回事。然而家人常说的无常和生老病死,原来就是佛陀的教诲!虽然我21岁时才正式成为一名佛教徒,但原来我自小都深受佛陀教诲的影响。

    佛陀的生平故事不只是故事,其中都是佛理的体现。我非常喜爱佛陀的生平故事。更棒的是,佛陀的生平故事在佛经中都能读到。由此,我就得知原来那不是故事那么简单。我对苦集灭道的理解,也是从佛陀的生平故事中了解。因此,无论佛陀的生平故事以哪种形式来呈现,那都是非常好的!谢谢仁波切的分享!我会继续再阅读佛陀的故事,以求不同的顿悟。

    How amazing it is that we can relate so well to Buddha’s teaching that was spoken during ancient times. Moreover, some of the teachings are actually more applicable in the modern times. It is abit scary to know the potential of an enlightened mind.

    I first came to know about the Buddha in my secondary school’s moral studies, which only expressed the history of Prince Gautama generally and not much on his teachings. In fact, it is actually the short stories of Buddha’s experience and lifetimes that got me interested.

    To me, Rinpoche’s blog is like Buddha’s teachings and short stories in cyber format. Thank you for posting Rinpoche.

  7. ericchoong on Jul 3, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    在我成长的过程,都有看过许多叙述佛陀的电影或漫画。小时只是晓得佛陀是王子,然后离家出走去出家。。。等等。
    当然真正故事里面所要表达的义意完全不憧,到现在遇到真正的上师然后才开始学佛修行才了解佛法真正的义意。
    “这个世界充满了痛苦和悲伤”,佛陀会这样教导我们,他告诉跟随他的人说他找到了安宁。你们也可以找到。佛陀教导我们,给于我们方法去如何接受这一切,佛陀的责任就是给我们指引。。。
    不过,这是很久很久以前佛陀在世时他当然可以面对面的教导学生。但是在现今社会我们只能够读他的开示或看电影而己。
    然而,幸运的是我们现在有一位上师,他的佛学知识全都是源自于佛陀的传承,他就是现成的活菩萨。我们应该要珍惜了。因为他可以面对面的教导我们。。。
    这些佛陀的电影故事,一直都百看不厌。不过,这一套我还没看过,谢谢仁波切的分享。

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!

  9. HelenaC on Jul 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    I love to watch The Buddha video, when i was younger i will have many question mark in my head but i don’t really bother to find out. Thank you Rinpoche for the past, i have more understanding now. 🙂

  10. Julia Tan on Jul 2, 2012 at 1:33 am

    It is a very nice video. I watched it twice. When Buddha started to teach at the Deer Forest, He just talked about his life experience. He’s advice for us is always find the middle path, which not too harsh nor slacking too. The 4 noble truth was Lord Buddha’s first teaching. The sufferings is something to cause us to have dissatisfactions, which is all arise from our mind. Because of desire lead to Dissatisfaction. Desire is always there in our mind but we need to be smart with our desire. We can have strong desire to achieve Buddhahood but not harmful. In order to do that we practice moral discipline, mindfulness and at the end we gain wisdom.
    Buddha started the Sangha community for people to live together and help one another, so that they can live together and enjoy the teaching. Because everyone is interconnecting to each other, we cannot be happy being alone in an island all by yourself. By going out to beg, Sangha will bring Buddha teachings to the world. It is a sign of spirituality. If they are not serving the community no one will put anything in their bowl too. Before Buddha went into clear light, He told his disciples that It’s time for them to be their own light.

    Buddha Shakyamuni’s story is very inspring. He had a beautiful wife and a lovely baby boy. It hurt him to leave his family behind and he knew people would not understand why he was doing this. However, for the sake of all sentient beings, of course for his family, he decided to leave them. Ultimately, he gained enlightenment and became a Buddha. He later helped his wife and son in their spiritual practice and they too gained attainment and were out of sufferings for good.

    Since Dharma really is the remedy to our sufferings, if given the chance, Dharma should be above all. Start the practice now and do not be stopped by excuses we created for ourselves.

    For me, I am working and practising Dharma in my everyday life. I hope to be able to repay the kindness of my family with Dharma.

    In order to gain something great, we need to scarifice in the beginning, especially in quest of liberating ourself from samsara the cycle of dead and rebirth. Lord Buddha compassionately show us the path to transcend this vicious cycle. We all have the Buddha nature and are capable to reach this full potential.

  13. Uncle Eddie on Jun 30, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Siddharta Gautama, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded, is regarded as the supreme Buddha in most Buddhist traditions. Gautama Buddha may also be referred to as Sakyamuni Buddha, or “The awakened one of the Shakya clan”. Buddhahood is said to be free from all mental obstruction, a state of continous bliss mixed with a simultaneous cognition of emptiness – The true nature of reality. “Every sentient being, even insects have buddha’s nature, the seed of Buddha, that’s the seed of enlightenment. So therefore, there’s no reason to believe some sentient being cannot become Buddha. So like that”, said H.H. The Dalai Lama. Buddhas spontaneously, naturally and continuously perform activities to benefit all sentient beings. However,it is due to sentient beings’ karmas which limit the ability of the Buddhas to help them. Therefore, we sentient beings continue to experience sufferings as a result of such limitation due to our own former negative actions. Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this ever inspiring teachings with us.

  14. Paul Yap on Jun 29, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Buddha life story is all time favorite, i have been watching this story many times, and im still watching it many more, the story itself is very inspiring, there is a way to become enlighten, we just need to follow the path!

  15. JP Lim on Jun 29, 2012 at 8:25 am

    Thanks for sharing this.

  16. Yoke Fui on Jun 29, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Reading or watching the story of Buddha is the means to an end – ultimate goal of enlightenment.

    The story of Buddha has been recounted millions of time through the ages to inspire and encourage others along the path.

    This video put up by Rinpoche is one of the most well made versions.It gives simple and clear explanation from the time of the miraculous conception to the various teachings given by the Buddha with good graphics and narrators of authoritative standing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and sponsors of this video.

  17. Sarah on Mar 25, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Rinpoche is one of the kindest people in my life. His dedication and compassion are amazing and inspiring. I hope one day I can become great also.

  18. sillyheart3 on May 4, 2011 at 2:13 am

    this is an amazing video it showed me and my friends there is another way to live a peacefil way

    During my era all schools subjects were taught in the English Language. And history was one of the subjects which we have to take in the Examinations. When I learn the history of Siddhartha I did not understand that Siddhartha was a Buddha. It was not suppose to be a religion but as way of life and a contemplation and meditation when applied to our life can bring satisfaction and a peaceful well being. The story of Siddhartha which the Sage has predicted that Siddhartha either can be a very great king or become a very holy being who will benefit many people. This is so similar to Rinpoche’s life story when Rinpoche’s mother dreamt of a white elephant before Rinpoche was born. Rinpoche will also have an option to live in the Samsara world or become Spiritual by becoming a monk to benefit a lot of people.

  20. Koh Hee Peng on Nov 3, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    Sorry, is not the 4th paragraph that I was referring to in e) and f) above. It was the 5th paragraph.

  21. koh hee peng on Oct 25, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    There is a song that I like very much back in my years in secondary school, “One of us” by Joan Osborne. The original lyrics are as follows:-

    If God had a name what would it be?
    And would you call it to his face?
    If you were faced with Him in all His glory
    What would you ask if you had just one question?

    1-And yeah, yeah, God is great
    Yeah, yeah, God is good
    yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

    What if God was one of us?
    Just a slob like one of us
    Just a stranger on the bus
    Tryin’ to make his way home?

    If God had a face what would it look like?
    And would you want to see if, seeing meant
    That you would have to believe in things like heaven
    And in Jesus and the saints, and all the prophets?
    (repeat 1, 1)

    Back up to heaven all alone
    No, nobody calling on the phone
    No, just tryin’ to make his way home
    Nobody calling on the phone
    ‘Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

    If we were to associate some of the words in the lyrics e.g.
    a) God with Buddha/enlighten being embedded in us – our Bodicitta mind;
    b) Heaven with Nirvana/Tushita’s heaven/Kechara heaven;
    c) Jesus with Rinpoches, high lamas, Tulku, Geshe-la, the enlighten ones;
    d) prophets with dharma/vows; and

    e) the first 3 sentences of the forth paragraph can be associated with us, beings with conscious mind, who at all times seeking for happiness that at times we are lost along the way and have fallen back from our spiritual path numerous times due to unsatisfying happiness gained through non-virtuos acts, who despite all the setbacks, continue the journey to seek for “pure” happiness throughout countless rebirths within the 6 realms, who eventually come to realise that the boundless happiness the limitless that we yearn for, the happiness that is pure and joyful, is from none other than within our heart. What we have been doing over our countless rebirths, is just trying to make our way home – to reach our very own budhicitta mind inside us.

    f) the last 2 sentences of the forth paragraph can be associated with the current degeneration time that most humans on earth are so distracted by delusions and attachments around us that we have ignored and neglected our very own budhicitta mind, that would only be called upon by our Gurus when we make the effort in meeting them, following their advises dearly, and transforming ourselves into better person.

    To me, if I were to interpret the song in the manner prescribed above, the song pretty much sum up the ending of the videos attached above 😀 (Just my immagination though)

    The video of the song “One of us” can be found in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4CRkpBGQzU

    Thank you again Rinpoche, for posting such a wonderful video on story of Siddharta. Thank you.

  22. koh hee peng on Oct 25, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    I really love this post very much that I keep coming back here to leave comments.. hehe … I love the music in the video so much!!

    Towards the end of the video, the people being interviewed, including H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, implores us to look into ourselves in search of our Buddhahood, the nature of Buddha mind, that we have the very fundamentals, capabiliies and possibilities to become an enlighten being too.

    Below are some of the words from the interviewers towards the end of the video:

    “.. but the real Buddha’s holy places is within one’s self, that is important. So the real Buddha’s sacred place we must build is within ourself. We must build within our heart.” – H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama

    “.. This world does not have to be a painful place. The world can be a world inhabited by Buddhas. It is up to each one of us to turn ourselves into Buddha. That’s the work.”

    “If the Buddha is not you, finally the Buddha is of no interest to you. The Buddha is of interest to you because you are a Buddha.”

    “Every sentient beings, even insects, have Buddha nature, the seed of Buddha. That’s the seed of enlightenment. So therefore, there’s no reason to believe some sentient beings cannot become Buddha. So like that,” – H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama.

    “..Ah.. ten toes, me too!! 😀

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for posting such a wonderful video. Thank you very much.

  23. Koh Hee Peng on Aug 30, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    The story of the raging elephant charging towards lord buddha reminds me of my very own elephant in my mind, recklessly stumbling upon all directions in a rough manner, screaming “My Interests!, My Feelings!, My happiness, Me!, Me!, Me!”, charging towards all the altruistic impulses that arise from my mind, forbidding them to grow and destroy any seeds of virtuous acts implanted inside my mind through transgressions of refuge vows and committing various non-virtuous acts.

    In the story, the wild elephant is tamed by Lord Buddha’s compassion. Likewise, in order to tame the elephant mind of mine, development of compassionate heart and mind is a must, placing others’ well beings before me, cutting off all the root causes that negate the preciousness of others that direct all the care and concern towards others to my ownself.

    Adhering and complying to the 8 verses of Thought Transformation by Kadampa Langri Tangpa (1054-1123)is a good start to train our mind, of which the verses can be found in http://tsemtulku.com/resources/prayers/prayers-preliminaries/eight-verses-of-mind-transformation/ The teachings by H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche himself can be found in the youtube. To ease the streamlining of the video over the Internet, his teachings have been split into 12 parts.

    Another useful tools of taming the elephant mind can also be found in this blog itself, namely Twenty-Seven Verses On Mind Training Je Tsongkapa (1357-1419)(http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/07/27-rules-to-real-happiness.html)

    The above 2 teachings serve as guidelines and rules of conducts in our daily interactions with other beings, conditioning our mind into selflessness, and depreciate selfishness. These teachings are not magic spells that would wipe off the wild elephant from our mind by merely reciting them, but daily recitations of these verses do help to reinforce the thoughts of selflessness inside our mind. As Buddha spoke, “The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.” (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/03/and-buddha-spoke-you-should-listen.html)

  24. koh hee peng on Aug 27, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    When the people being interviewed talk about the life of Siddharta, especially on the turning point when Siddharta accepted the milk offered and realised another path to enlightenment, abandoning his 6 years of practice as ascetic, all I can see from their facial expression are joy, happiness, admiration. They are rejoicing at the realisation attained by Siddharta that led him to become a Buddha. How wonderful is that! Rejoicing is the simplest method to collect merit, yet it is not easy as we are rejoicing at the happiness and success accomplished by others, not ours. Under normal circumstances, our self-cherishing mind would become jealous at others’ accomplishment. The more selfish we are, the more difficult for us to rejoice at others’ fruitful results, the further we distanced ourselves from the path to enlighten mind.

  25. koh hee peng on Aug 18, 2010 at 12:30 am

    The first part reminds me of the movie “Little Buddha” which I watched during my early teens, finding it very fascinating to learn the path that Siddharta took to attain enlightenment. The first sight of an old man, followed by people who fall sick, and then a corpse made Siddharta realise the truth of impermanence, sufferings and death. The encounter of spiritual seeker who lives the complete opposite of his life propels Siddharta to undertake the journey to find means to end the sufferings in life.

    I love the narration and discussion of Siddharta’s life before and after becoming buddha in the videos, and also the animation in between the clips, enriching the story about the life of buddha.

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing such a wonderful video with us. Thank you.

  26. KYC on Jul 10, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    I was delighted to find this video on Buddha’s life story with a short introduction from Rinpoche. I never tire of reading about or listening to someone relating the story of Lord Buddha’s life and his journey to enlightenment. In his introduction, Rinpoche tells us that it is enough to just access his blog. We don’t have to carry a lot of files around. How true. Rinpoche will add to the blog in time for our benefit. I know this for a fact. He tells us that it’s like entering another world. Yes, it’s Rinpoche’s world that we are entering. I find Rinpoche world very educational and every article, every bit of news is a learning experience.

  27. SK Yap on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    YES, all Buddhist must watch the life story of Buddha Shakyamuni and remember it by hard, because through this story and history, we have direct evidence that the Buddhha has follow and practise the path, and eventually gain attainment and become enlighten. This means we can follow Buddha’s footstep and practise dharma too.
    By understanding the history, we can clear our own doubt, explain Buddhism to our family and friends, and make Buddha teaching grow. This story also make perfect bedtime story for our kids, instill positive imprint to them while they are young. When the kids grow up, they will have the right thinking and attitudes too.
    I hope there is more of this kind video available. The life story of Bodhisattva Manjushri, Lama Tsongkhapa, Tara and Dharmapala Setrap will be amongst the popular!

    It is amazing how the story of Siddhartha has been adapted over and over, told and retold through so many different mediums through the years – movies, documentaries, musicals, etc. His story is magical, his life is inspiring, his teachings profound.
    I really like the response in the video when it was brought up that the very first biography of Buddha was only written 500 years after he has passed on, how accurate could the account be? – “We don’t know how much of it is pure fairytale, and how much of it is historic fact but it does not matter. It touches something that we all basically know. The relevance of it is in the message of the story, the promise of the story. Like any good story, it has a lot to teach. The story of his life then is a beautiful way of telling the teaching.”
    Aging, sickness, death – a recognition of impermanency. Through the idea of reincarnation, we are constantly reminded that suffering did not begin with birth and will not end in death – suffering was endless. Unless it was possible to find a way out – (by) becoming enlightened, becoming a Buddha. Dear Rinpoche, thank you very much for sharing these videos with us; the story of Siddhartha has always been high on my list of interest. To find such a rare, well narrated piece of footage on the topic is like caramel topping on French vanilla ice cream for me!

  29. Joy Kam on Jul 9, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Ever since I was a child I just love stories, movies of Saints and Gods. One of my all time favorites is the story of Buddha! Thank you Rinpoche for putting up this beautiful true story of Lord Buddha on your blog. No matter how many times I watch it, I am always awed by His story because it proves to us all that becoming enlightened is not just a dream, myth and legend. It is a story that inspires people because it lets us know we can become Buddha if we practice.
    To many Buddhism is a way of life, because there is no ONE GOD ALMIGHTY that punishes you when you don’t do what they tell you to do http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/06/the-one-god-theory-comes-from-greek-mythology.html Buddhism gives you the power of controlling your own destiny and how you react to situations determines the results you shall reap tomorrow and the future. Becoming a Buddha is probably a long long way for me but at least I know it is not impossible and it can be achieved. Imagine if you can control your own rebirth, stop experiencing suffering and help those you love to also achieve it – impossible? Possible.

  30. Joe Ang on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:03 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,
    thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us. I love this video very much and find it very beautiful. It tells the story of how Buddhism came about and the life story of Siddhartha from when he was born, until he achieved enlightenment, became Buddha and entered the clear light. This video shows art work of Buddhism from many countries such as Tibet, India, Japan, China and Thailand. And the example of impermanance is shown in a way, which is subtle, but we do get the point.(eg. When the guy told of, how at one moment a beautiful glass that hold water and makes a nice sound when it’s tapped, is broken in the next moment.) I feel this video should be watched by people who wants to understand and know more about Buddhism. As for people who are, Buddhist should watch it because this video reminds us that Siddharta did not achieve enlightenment easily. It is with great compassion, much experiment, perserverance and hardship that he realized the middle way. That he lived his life for the benefit of others, to find a way to lead us out of suffering. Therefore, we should be very grateful that we have a way to follow because Lord Buddha has been through all that for us and left behind a set of practice which is taught by our holy Guru to us that guarantee enlightenment if we practice diligently and correctly.
    With much love and respect,
    Joe Ang

  31. May Ong on Jul 8, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    It is rare to find footage or even videos depicting the Life of Buddha anywhere in video shops or on television. The lives of Jesus or Buddha or Mohammed are rarely shown on media except in religious centre or on these holy beings birthdays.
    My point is the degeneration of religion globally. Human in this era pursue happiness in shopping, eating, sleeping, money, branded goods, fashion, looks, Botox etc. while the Buddha gave up everything including his own family to pursue the answer to “suffering” and its causes. How many branded bags can he have to show off? How many cars and houses do we need? Can we take these “valuable” things with us when we pass on?

  32. pamela on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    Ooooo…. Adrian and I watched bought this video from KH1 on Setrap’s retreat night and watched it last night.
    This short documentary is so well done with animation, music and subtitles. It was so easy to understand. I encouraged my kids to watch it this weekend as it will be easy for them understand too. The last movie I saw, The Little Buddha was a disappointment for me because I didnt get to finish it. The DVD was spoilt and the player couldnt access it. Sigh! But I was glad we got to watch The Story of Siddharta instead.
    Buddha Shakyamuni had to go through so much in order to understand ‘What causes SUFFERING?’ of which he gained enlightenment after understanding it and the teachings are practiced till today after 2,500 years into his Parinirvana.

  33. Shirley Tan on Jul 8, 2010 at 6:28 am

    So many people do not understand why Rinpoche spends so much time blogging and a few readers have even accused Rinpoche of changing and becoming non-spiritual. Some people assume that Rinpoche is more interested in becoming a celebrity and is adding ‘personality and lifestyle’ to his Blog. I have read a comment from a reader who professes that he shall no longer follow Rinpoche because he has not seen anything worthwhile from Rinpoche. I was taken back when I read it. Here, I’d like to share something real.
    It takes Rinpoche a lot of time to research some subject matters that Rinpoche shares in his blog. They are not added in here by accident, on at Rinpoche’s whim and fancy. These do not become Rinpoche’s style or nature. That would be ours.
    Everything in our life can be a spiritual teaching, simply because to live well and right one must integrate spirituality into every aspect of life. If we watch this movie of Buddha’s story, then we can see how Buddha achieved his Enlightenment. He pondered on everything around him and used them to propel him into the path, and finally realized the ultimate truth. We cannot separate our everyday life from Dharma because Dharma is life.
    Every post Rinpoche shares in his blog, is crafted with love, care and a lot of time. Rinpoche has taken the things that make up our lives to teach us about spirituality. He has done so in order to make it easier for us to relate and to make spirituality relevant to our modern way of life. And it is because Rinpoche realizes that in our very busy and hectic lives, we may not even have the time or luxury to come across anything spiritual to feed our souls or minds, hence Rinpoche opens up his world to us.
    Please read Rinpoche’s comments again below and see true compassion in action. This Lama cares so much that he finds creative ways to bring the spiritual messages to us all. This is why many people refer to Rinpoche as the LIVING BUDDHA.
    “You don’t have to keep so many files in your computer that takes up space, just access this blog. I will add more to it in time for your benefit. It’s like entering another world. My world which I open to you.”

      ‘So many people do not understand why Rinpoche spends so much time blogging and a few readers have even accused Rinpoche of changing and becoming non-spiritual’. It is sad to know that there are critics out there that no matter what you do even with the best intentions, they find a reason to accuse you of it.

      I recall reading somewhere that even Buddha was accused of being an irresponsible husband and father because he walked out on them. I am sure, as anyone with a conscience, it was not an easy decision for him. He must have been worried and hesitated before he made the move. But he had a choice, to dedicate himself to his family or dedicate himself to the whole world. His compassion led him to make that wise decision and till today, centuries later, we are recipients of his sacrifice. I do not see him walking out on his family as being irresponsibile but perhaps the most signifcant sacrifice ever made out of great compassion for all.

        No, I don’t see it as irresponsible. It would be if it was due to self interest. The ‘ pain’ Siddharta’s family had to go through was their own creation due to their attachment to their son and their own self centred agenda.In actuality their son left so that he could find a way to over come death and help his parents and loved ones and all other living beings achieve the same. Buddha is Buddha because he is the most responsible.He went through intensive practice at the cost of his life to go where no one has gone before to liberate all.

    As buddhists, we should all know by heart the life story of buddha Shakyumuni, or prince Siddhartha before he gained enlightenment.This video is very well made, the best I have even seen. The use of different people as narrators, the beautiful visual display of old buddhist painting relating to buddha’s life story, beautiful live scenes and the use of comic interpretation all offer a very refreshing angle to learn buddha’s life story.
    Kechara House also launched our frist ever Tsongkhapa stage play in Decemebr last year. It was one of its kind, never in history has a stage play been produced to share the life biography of this holy scholar Tsongkhapa, who is the founder of the Gelupa tradition in Tibetan buddhism. Tsongkhapa is often known as the second buddha. The project was headed by Liaison Kok Yek Yee , liaison Ngeow Voon Chin and Liaison Yap Yuk Fui. Many kechara house members have participated and volunteered their time in the making and production of this show. To top up the good news, We even won 5 awards in the Camerson Arts festival.

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    I am glad that Rinpoche has brought this up and important that as Buddhists, it is so important to know and understand our Founder, Sakyamuni (Gautama) Buddha’s life story and realise how He came to realize the Path and compassionately set forth the Dharma.
    Equally fortunate is this generation that we do not have to totally resort to dusty and dry books/texts but now available in multimedia forms suited for the mass audiences.
    I can only imagine how many would have the patience to sieve thru the many and scattered accounts of His Life be they in the Pali Canon/Agamas/Mahayana Canon or Asvaghosha’s ‘Buddhacaritam’ or ‘A Life of The Buddha’ or even the Jataka Tales…

  36. David Lai on Jul 5, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I love this amazing video because it offers such a refreshing story of Lord Buddha’s life and the ancient society in which he was brought up in. The different angles of each scene is coupled with wonderful narration. The different voices and ideas adds to the richness of the story. I had always loved the Buddha’s story even when I was younger.
    Probably the first time, I had ever heard of the Buddha’s life was in the early 90s when i was in my teenage years. At that time, I encountered Lord Buddha as played by Keenu Reeves and I must admit that he wasn’t much of an actor but it awoken a deep curiosity within me regarding the Buddha and his teachings. This was not to fruition until years later when I met Rinpoche.
    Lord Buddha was like what Rinpoche calls him, a true renaissance man. He realised so much about the human condition and the workings of the mind that he was able to liberate himself and so many others throughout history. His teachings were refreshingly different and brought about social change in India. It was the first time, royalty and serfs mingled together in devotion to understanding their mind.
    What is amazing about the teachings of Buddha was that it transcends time and culture. Even images of the Buddha has assumed the physical identity of each culture that it has penetrated. I love the Buddha and his amazing teachings!

    Most Chinese people believe in Buddhism. So there are countless religious sites in this vast land. China has such an incredibly long history that it makes sense that there would be a lot of places of interest where holy relics were kept. It would be wonderful to go spiritually enriching, going on pilgrimage to all these Holy scared places as mentioned. Interesting to read with lots of information making the trip much easier . Its amazing there are so many temples where holy Buddha relics been kept. Looking at it merely tells us all and is a blessing connected with the spiritual qualities of the Buddha. Interesting read and beautiful pictures shared.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this wonderful sharing.

    Kechara Oasis serves good and healthy foods for most its vegetarian. Kechara Oasis founded by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche caters to fine, high quality, delicious food leaves a deep impression on our nature. Looking at those pictures tells us more. Well decorated those foods shown. We can live and be healthy without killing animals for food. Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life. As our Lama had always encouraged us to on vegetarian to save animals .
    Choosing to go on vegetarian is the best choice. One of these day I will go KO to try those delicious dishes.

    A mandala offering in Tibetan Buddhism is a symbolic offering of the entire universe to the Buddha . Its very meritorious to do this practice with the purpose of helping us to transform our ordinary minds and offering away our ego to gain enlightenment. Mandala offering is a powerful method or a preliminary practice for accumulating extensive merit. The mandala offering is more like training us to develop the mind that takes delight and joy in making other people happy. In doing so, we create a vast collection of merits and it’s important that our visualization is clear and well fully concentration. I still plenty to learn from this post and will read again time from time to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful profound teachings.

    Avalokitesvara is one of the most famous bodhisattvas in Buddhism. Of the many bodhisattvas, it is identified specifically as the embodiment of compassion and as such has been worshipped throughout Buddhist Asia. Beautiful statue of of 1000-armed Avalokitesvara been offered to Rinpoche. A beautiful gift indeed. The bodhisattva seeks the full and complete enlightenment of Buddhahood out of compassionate concern for the salvation of all sentient beings. Very auspicious and meritorious to have one in the home .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful statue given by Joshua and family from Singapore .

    Well said by Jayadevi that as a Buddhist we need to behave well setting a good example to all. Behaving well to practice the Dharma and will inspire more people to practice. We create beauty with our attitude, our behaviour, our actions, will inspire people. Living in a place where we are the only one who practice Buddhism is far more important with our behaviour to gain respect and trust.
    Being a Buddhist is not that hard as long we have a proper teacher guiding us , learning and putting in actions in a correct manner . Following our teacher advice and for most to have our mind transform. We are fortunate to learn, practice Dharma from Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,

    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this wonderful sharing . Happiness depends upon ourselves how we manage things out. It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness and seeing the happy faces of others. But when we expect too much it becomes an obstacle. Everyone chases after happiness, but few understand where it comes from. Well everything starts within ourselves, mind and in our heart. The only thing that will make us happy is being happy with who we are. To me happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude in helping others to be happy. Learning dharma has me change the way I think , it’s a choice .
    Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. — quoted Buddha

    Thank you for the precious sharing and bring us to the beautiful snow-covered peaks view of Gaden Monastery. I am bless to see the photo of Golden Stupa that encases the holy remains of Lama Tsongkapa’s blessed body/clothes/relics. I sure you must had enjoyed the wonderful experiences of the journey.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has discovered several terrestrial-mass planets orbiting. Interesting they have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the habitable zone . Wow… an Earth-sized world within the habitable range of its star, which could allow the presence of liquid water to exist. It has proven we are not alone in this universe where others being such as Aliens or UFO. I do believe definitely there are other unknown beings exist and other planets as well. Maybe in future , more discoveries.
    Interesting read .

    Money is not everything in life and is not evil . But one uses it in a wrong way it creates harm and unhappiness. Money is the worst discovery in human life but it is the most trusted material to test human nature. With the money , we have use it wisely as one without money in life is tough and rough. If have more money than we need it is good to give away helping in charity and to those who needed badly. To teach our children the right way, never spoiled them with attachment. There is no easy way or short cut .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    The art of dinning come from the menu, style and the concept of the restaurant. I haven’t been there but the menu looks yummy.

    Heart breaking after watching the video. Its really sad watching those animals including bludgeoning, neck-breaking while many are skinned alive. The way they were killed just for their fur is horrible inhumane practices. In fact those animals are confined to relatively small wire cages with little enrichment. Millions of fur-bearing animals are killed every year by trappers worldwide. For many of us, wearing fur is simply cruel, and to be avoided at all costs. China is the largest importer of fur pelts in the world and the largest exporter of finished fur products. Glad that campaign groups such as PETA have long highlighted the cruelty of such farms. Fur farming is now banned in a number of countries such as Austria, Croatia, the United Kingdom and so forth. Not only causing the suffering and deaths of millions of animals each year, the production of wool, fur, and leather contributes to climate change, land devastation, pollution, and even water contamination. Hopefully the fur industry can work together with farms with better regulations.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of the cruelty of animal at fur farm.

    Beautiful Jog Fall located at southern state of Karnataka is India’s highest waterfall. It is a segmented waterfall which depends on rain and season becomes a plunge waterfall. Its one of the power where our Lama H E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche had visited years ago. From the beautiful pictures of Jog Fall can tells us more. Looks peaceful to do prayers, recitation , meditation, retreat as encouraged by our Lama when visiting holy place. When there is stupa we can also do circumambulations, offerings and more. Doing prayers at all these power holy places would be wonderful. There are many places as mentioned by Rinpoche do have powerful positive energy. It’s those place where great masters have visited , varies prayers done, meditation ,and retreats. All these holy places such as Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath-Varanasi and Kushinagara, Tsongkapa’s birthplace and many more all over the world is infused with the powerful energy of beings. A good article to read and great knowledge of some of the power place and go on pilgrimage.
    We are fortunate to have Rinpoche here in Malaysia where Kechara Forest Retreat was conceptualized ….a holy place infused with powerful energy. It has indeed benefited many and many more to come.

    Even an animal as large and carnivorous can be gentle and loving. All animals deserve the chance to live.Thank you very much for the good article.

    Most people think animal cruelty is mainly people being unkind to animals. Based on the article million innocent animals were tortured and killed for their fur or skin off their backs. The fur industry is such a cruel heartless business that is bad for the environment and unnecessary.

    It’s horrendous, I can’t believe that fur from China has so much demand. Shock to see the industries cheapest and cruelest methods used in killing the animals. All the animals are victims of cruelty spent their whole lives restricted to filthy, cramped wire cages. This has to come to an end.

    The industry will continue to grow wild if there is no restriction. The success of any business depends upon how they are creating the demand for a product in the target market and then, how they are managing the supplies to fulfill that demand.

    Attitudes toward minorities have been marked by discrimination historically almost everywhere. In the United States’s history many forms of discrimination had been happening in U.S. Population growth and cultural has change throughout much of the U.S. Americans enjoyed legally sanctioned privileges and rights which were denied to other races and minorities. All these should happened just because of their religion, spirituality, race, economic background. Anyway it did happened in USA, as Rinpoche did experienced before where discrimination and there are people who are segregated because of their religious faith.
    In happened in the Dorje Shugden’s controversy as well all because of their faith which has affected hundred thousands of Tibetan communities . Even to this day the discrimination still continue with the Tibetan Leadership interference politics with religion.
    History has a tendency to repeat itself and those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. Hopefully it will not be repeated for peace and harmony .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

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