1. Roasty Soba Bowl With Miso Tahini

Recipe:

  • 8 oz buckwheat soba noodles
  • 2 cups cooked brown or green lentils
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into large florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Severeal dashes Fresh black pepper

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup mellow white miso
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup water

Optional: fresh herbs for garnish (dill, cilantro and parsley are all good choices.)

Method:

  1. Cook the lentils if you don’t already have prepared ones (1 cup dry is about 2 cups cooked.) While the water for the soba is boiling, preheat the oven to 425 F and chop the cauliflower into large florets. It’s easy to do this by chopping it in half lengthwise, pulling of the leafy base and then pulling off the florets with your hands.
  2. When the water boils, prepare soba according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and set aside, rinsing with cold water to prevent sticking.
  3. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non stick cooking spray. Toss the cauliflower on the with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for about 20 minutes, flipping once, until aromatic nicely toasted.
  4. In the meantime, place all dressing ingredients in a small blender. Start with 1/2 cup water, and then add another 1/4 to thin, if you like.
  5. Assemble the bowl: Divide soba noodles into big bowls. Top with lentils, cauliflower and plenty of sauce. Garnish with herbs and serve!

2. Sunflower Mac

Recipe:

  • 8 oz macaroni pasta (Use brown rice pasta to make it gluten-free)
  • 1 cup unroasted sunflower seed kernels, soaked (see directions)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons organic cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Sweet paprika for sprinkling

Method

  1. Place sunflower seeds in a bowl and submerge in water. Let soak for about 2 hours and up to overnight. Drain well.
  2. Boil a pot of salted water for your pasta.
  3. Preheat a sauce pot over medium heat. Saute carrots and onions in oil with a pinch of salt for about 10 minutes, until onions are translucent and carrots are slightly softened. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds or so, then remove from heat.
  4. Place the carrots and onions in a blender or food processor. Add vegetable broth, corn starch, nutritional yeast, tomato paste and sunflower seeds. Blend until very smooth. This could take up to 5 minutes depending on the power of your machine, so give your blender  motor a break every minute or so and test the sauce for smoothness. It should be very smooth, with only a slight graininess.
  5. If your water is boiling, prepare the pasta according to package directions.
  6. In the meantime, transfer the sauce back to the sauce pot. Turn the heat up to medium and let cook, stirring very often, until thickened. This should take about 15 minutes. Add the lemon juice and taste for salt and seasoning.
  7. The pasta should be done while the sauce is thickening, so drain and place back in the pot you cooked it in. Set aside.
  8. When sauce is thick, pour most of it over the pasta, reserving some to pour over individual servings. Mix it up, and serve with extra sauce and paprika for sprinkling.

3. Bestest Pesto

Recipe:

  • 1/4 cup walnut halves
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh black pepper (to finish)

Method:

  1. First toast the nuts. Preheat a large heavy bottomed skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-low heat. First toast the walnuts for about 5 minutes, tossing them often. Then add the pinenuts for an additional 5. They should turn a few shades darker and smell warm and toasty.
  2. Transfer toasted nuts to a food processor. Add the garlic and pulse everything into fine crumbs. Add the basil, cilantro, thyme, salt, nutritional yeast and water and puree until relatively smooth, scraping down the sides at least once to make sure you get everything. Stream in the olive oil and blend until well combined. Last but not least, blend in the lemon juice.
  3. Serve it over warm pasta (don’t rinse, it needs the starch to stick), and finish it off with some fresh black pepper.

4. Cashew Queso

Recipe notes: ~If you prefer a chunky queso, double the vegetable ingredients (except for the garlic) and set half aside before the pureeing step. ~This reheats really well! Gently reheat in a small pot, drizzling in a little water and whisking often until it returns to its original creamy state. ~The nutritional yeast is totally optional. It adds a little extra cheezy kick, but if you aren’t a fan or don’t have any on hand, the queso will not suffer for it. ~White miso is my favorite, but since it’s such a small quantity, any miso will do here.

Recipe:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours or overnight
  • 2 cups veg broth
  • 2 tablespoons white miso (see recipe note)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced (keeps seeds if you want more heat)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ancho pepper (or any mild ground red chili)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Method

  1. Drain the cashews. In a blender or food processor, puree them with vegetable broth, miso and cornstarch until very smooth. This could take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on your device. Rub between your fingers to test; slight graininess is okay, but try to get it as smooth as possible.
  2. In the meantime, preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Saute onion, red pepper, and jalapeno in oil with a pinch of salt until soft, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and saute about a minute more.
  3. Transfer vegetables to the blender where the cashew mixture is. Add cumin, ancho, nutritional yeast and salt. Blend again until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender with a spatula to make sure you get everything.
  4. Transfer mixture back to the pot. Whisking often, turn heat up to medium until the queso comes to a slow rolling boil. Lower heat so that it doesn’t burn and cook for about 20 minutes. Whisk often and check to see that it’s thickening, if it’s not, then turn the heat up a bit. It should become nicely thickened but velvetty and pourable.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice at the end. If the queso seems too thick, drizzle in a little water and whisk to desired consistency. Taste for salt, spices and lemon juice and adjust as you like. Serve hot!

5. Spaghetti Pomodoro With Grilled Tempeh

Recipe:

  • 1/2 pound spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 pounds tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Several dashes fresh black pepper
  • 8 large basil leaves, torn into pieces (plus extra for garnish)

Method

  1. First bring water to a boil for the pasta. Prep everything while it’s boiling. Once boiling, cook your spaghetti.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a 4 quart pot over medium low heat. Saute garlic in the oil for about a minute, being careful not to burn.
  3. Add the tomatoes, salt, black pepper and basil leaves and stir. Cover pot and turn the heat up to medium high. Let cook for about 15 minutes, stirring often.
  4. The tomatoes should be broken down and saucy. Toss in the spaghetti and toss to coat. Turn off heat and let sit for 10 minutes or so, to let flavors meld. Serve topped with extra basil.

6. Romesco Pizza With Caramelized Onions & Squash

Recipe

You’ll need: 2 balls of pizza dough, for 2 large pizzas Olive oil for brushing

For the caramelized onions: 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 large yellow onions big pinch salt

For the sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cups slivered almonds
  • 4 red bell roasted peppers (you can also drained, jarred roasted red peppers)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teasoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar

For the squash: 1 large yellow squash, sliced into paper thin ribbons (with a mandoline or knife)

Method:

To make the caramelized onions:

  1. The basic idea here is that you sweat the onions, which means you’ll be gently cooking them covered over low heat, and a lot of the cooking will be done from the steam as the water is released. You’re coaxing the sweetness out of them and locking it in. It looks like a lot of onion, and it is, but everything will cook down to manageable proportions. If you’ve never tasted caramelized onions, you might be surprised that an onion is even capable of this deep, sweet complexity, and with only two ingredients.
  2. Preheat a heavy bottomed, preferably cast iron, skillet over low heat. Add the oil and the onions and toss the onions to coat. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, leaving a little gap for steam to escape. Stir occasionally, every 5 minutes or so. Onions should turn a nice mellow amber, but not burn, although a couple of darker spots are fine.
  3. Remove the cover and turn the heat up just a bit, to a medium setting. Stir often for 10 more minutes. Onions should become a darker amber, and some of the moisture should evaporate.  Transfer to a bowl until ready to use.

To make the romesco:

  1. If your red peppers aren’t already roasted, then do it now. Just place them on a rimmed baking sheet, into a 425 F oven, and turn occasionally. They’re ready when they’re blackened and collapsed, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove them from oven and immediately place in a paper bag. This will steam the skin off as they cool. Place in the fridge and once cool, remove from bag, peel off skin and remove seeds.
  2. Now toast the almonds. Preheat a large, heavy bottomed pan over medium low heat. Spread the almonds out in a single layer and toast frequently until fragrant and honey brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer almonds to a food processor. Now we’ll prepare the rest of the sauce.
  3. In the same pan over medium high heat, saute onions in olive oil for 5 to 7 minutes with a pinch of salt, until lightly browned. Add garlic, several dashes fresh black pepper, dried marjoram and salt, and saute for 30 seconds more, then turn off the heat.
  4. Now pulse the almonds in the food processor until they’re a finely ground powder. Add the roasted red peppers, the onion mixture and the red wine vinegar and agave nectar. Puree until fairly smooth. Taste for salt, and set aside until ready to use.

To assemble pizza:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 F.
  2. This post is getting really long, so it won’t be a treatise on how to perfectly roll out a pizza crust. But I’ll just say, use a lightly floured, cold surface and I’m just fine with using a rolling pin.
  3. Roll dough out onto a large, lightly greased pizza pan. Spread a cup or so of romesco sauce onto the pizza. Place squash ribbons artfully over the sauce and drizzle with a little olive oil. Also, brush the crust with olive oil.
  4. Place pizza on the bottom of the oven (yes, right on the bottom, no rack required) preferably on a pizza stone, but it’s ok if you don’t have one. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until crust is golden. Remove from oven, top with splotches of caramelized onion, sprinkle on some fresh black pepper if you like, slice and serve. Then prepare your next pizza the same way!

7. Sanctuary Dip

Recipe

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours, and drained 1 cup water 3 to 4 ounces extra firm tofu (1/4 of a typical package)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • 1 tablespoon plus
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable broth powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill

Method

  1. Place cashews, water, tofu, lemon juice and agave in the blender. Puree until very smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula often to make sure you get everything. This can take up to 5 minutes depending on the strength of your blender.
  2. Add the onion powder, veg broth powder, garlic powder and salt, and pulse to combine. Transfer mixture to a bowl and mix in the dried dill. Taste for salt and seasonings. Seal tightly and chill for at least an hour. The longer you let is chill, the firmer it will get.
  3. Before serving, taste one last time and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve!

8. Spaghetti-Nos With Mini Lentil Meatballs

Recipe notes:

~If you can’t find seasoned store bought breadcrumbs for the meatballs, add a pinch each of basil, oregano and thyme. Homemade bread crumbs won’t work as well (too soft), but cracker crumbs might fare a bit better if you must.

~If you can’t find crushed tomatoes with basil, just use a pinch or two of dried basil.

~If you don’t have a food processor, you can still get the job done (although you’ll need some sort of blender for the sauce.) Just get the onion grated and mash the lentils into a puree. If you warm them up a bit first they’ll mush up a lot easier.

~To soak cashews, just submerge them in water for at least an hour and up to overnight. This softens them up and enables them to get really creamy.

~The recipe makes a lot! Feel free to halve it. And if you’re short on time, just make the pasta or make the meatballs with regular sauce on regular pasta. It’s fun to do the whole shebang, but all of the elements would be good solo players as well.

~Lastly, while it isn’t difficult, this recipe does use quite a few pots and pans, so consider yourself warned! For time management purposes, start the sauce first and once it’s simmering, begin the meatballs. That should get everything done within an hour.

For the Cheesy Tomato Sauce:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 24 oz. cans crushed tomato with basil
  • 1/4 cup cashews, soaked (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

For the Mini Meatballs:

  • 1 clove garlic 1 small onion, peeled (tangerine sized or equivalent)
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked green or brown lentils, rinsed, drained (a 15 oz can is fine)
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten flour
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup seasoned store-bought breadcrumbs

For everything else:

  • 1 lb anellini pasta (or small pasta of your choice)
  • Olive oil for pan frying

Method:

To make the sauce:

  1. Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Sautee onions in olive oil with a pinch of salt until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic about a minute more, then mix in the black pepper, oregano, salt and brown sugar. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the sugar is melted. Add the tomato sauce, cashews and nutritional yeast, cover and cook for about 20 minutes.
  2. Now puree the sauce until smooth. It’s easiest to use an immersion blender. You can also use a blender or food processor, blending in batches. Once it’s smooth, keep warm in the pot until ready to use.

To make the mini meatballs:

  1. We’re going to use the food processor fit with a metal S blade for most of the work here, so it should come together pretty quickly. First toss in the garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Now add the onion and pulse until minced. You don’t want any big pieces or they will ruin the texture of the meatball.
  2. With a plastic spatula, transfer the onion/garlic mixture to a mixing bowl and set aside. It’s okay if some remnants are left, just try to get most of it.
  3. Now in the food processor, pulse the lentils, nutritional yeast, wheat gluten, soy sauce, tomato paste, olive oil and water. Once everything gets mixed well, puree them until totally smooth, scraping down the sides to make sure you get everything.
  4. Combine this mixture with the onion mixture and add in the breadcrumbs. Mix really well with your hands for about 2 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  6. Roll the meatballs into cherry sized balls. This goes very fast if you keep your hands clean and dry. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and pour in a thin layer of olive oil. You don’t want to crowd the pan, so pan fry in two batches. You should be able to tilt the pan and have all the meatballs roll around and get coated in oil, cooking until browned (no more than 5 minutes.)
  7. Transfer first batch to a baking pan, cook the second batch, and transfer all meatballs to the baking pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, shaking the pan every once in awhile to toss the balls so that they cook evenly.

To assemble: Boil the pasta while the meatballs are cooking. Drain pasta, and add to the sauce. When meatballs are ready, add them to the sauce as well. Toss carefully with a wooden spoon, being careful not to break the meatballs. Serve!

9. Mac & Shews

Recipe notes:

~You really need to blend the beejeezus out of the cashews and sauerkraut. Although it won’t be completely creamy until after it’s cooked, it should still be relatively smooth, with absolutely no chunks, when it comes out of the food processor.

~Make sure that the roux is cooked and toasty before streaming in the veggie broth. It really makes a difference in the final flavor, so get your roux a really beautiful gravy color.

~You can use any smallish pasta. Small shells or traditional macaroni are both great choices, too.

~To soak cashews, just place them in a bowl and submerge with water. Soak for at least an hour, preferably two, or up to overnight.

~And lastly, the type of veggie broth you use makes a huge difference. If I use my own homemade broth, I make sure it’s super assertive. If you use the type of broth that comes from a powder or concentrate, that is totally cool, just make it a bit stronger than you usually do.

Recipe

  • 1 lb small pasta like shells, macaroni or chiocciole
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked (see recipe note)
  • 4 cups broth, divided
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cups sauerkraut
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon tumeric
  • Several dashes fresh black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  1. First boil salted water for the pasta. Cook pasta and drain. In the meantime, prepare the rest of the recipe.
  2. Place the soaked cashews and 2 cups of the vegetable broth in a food processor and blend until smooth, scraping the sides of the food processor with a spatula occasionally to make sure you get everything. This could take 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, preheat a large pan (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. Saute the onions and garlic and a pinch of salt in a tablespoon of the oil, until onions are softened.
  4. Drain the sauerkraut in a sieve, pushing it into the sieve to remove as much moisture as possible. Add to the pan just to heat through, a minute or two.
  5. Transfer sauerkraut mixture to the food processor with the cashew mixture. Once again, puree until relatively smooth. There will be some texture, just make sure it’s not chunky.
  6. Wipe out the pan that you sauteed the onions in and preheat it over medium heat once again. Add 3 tablespoons of oil, along with the flour. It should become a gooey clump. You’re now making a roux! Add a little bit more olive oil if necessary. Toast the roux for about 15 minutes, until it smells toasty and turns a medium brown. Stir practically the whole time so that it cooks evenly.
  7. Now stream in remaining 2 cups of broth, whisking constantly so that it doesn’t clump. Whisk until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes.
  8. Stream in the cashew sauerkraut mixture, and whisk until well incorporated. Add the tumeric, black pepper, nutritional yeast if using, salt and fresh lemon juice. Heat through and stir occasionally, allowing the mixture to thicken.
  9. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease an 11 x 13 casserole with olive oil.
  10. Add the cooked pasta back to the pasta pot and pour in the sauce. Taste for salt and pepper. Mix to coat, then transfer to the casserole dish. Cover casserole with tin foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove tin foil and bake an additional 5 minutes. Serve hot!

16. Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch chunk of peeled ginger, minced
  • 2 cups blueberries (I bet raspberries or blackberries would be great, too)
  • 1/2 cup veggie broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons chipotle powder (smoked paprika would work too)
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (or more to taste)
  • Salt to taste, if needed

Method:

  1. Preheat a sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Saute the onions in the oil for about 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger, saute for a minute more.
  4. Add the blueberries, veggie broth and soy sauce and bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling, add the chipotle, molasses and sugar.
  6. Lower heat and let simmer for about 45 minutes, until it’s reduced by about half. It should be nice and thick. Adjust sugar and salt if you need to.
  7. Turn the heat off and let sit for about 15 minutes before using, stirring occasionally.
  8. I used the BBQ sauce on tofu and tempeh.
  9. For the tofu, I pressed it and dredged in 2 tablespoons peanut oil and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Bake for about 20 minutes, then flip and coat with lots of sauce.
  10. Bake for 15 more minutes. Same for the tempeh, only I steamed that for about 10 minutes. I love the way basmati or jasmine rice taste with BBQ sauce, so make me happy and serve rice alongside.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these Sauce recipes. I think I am gonna try the Basil Mint Pesto as I love pesto mixed with bread. Rinpoche always shares great stuff on Rinpoche’s blog and it is not all about Dharma. This blog is truly great for all audiences.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always posting such recipes. All the recipes that are posted in the food and recipes section look delicious and healthy.
    I was wondering… Wouldn’t it be good to have a Kechara Forest Retreat Cafe? The cafe will serve all the recipes that are featured in the food and recipes section. And probably with more choices. We can also have veges and fruits from our very own organic farm!

    Whale Saves Woman from Shark!

    I was thrilled to watch the video. The most incredible part is that the whale did not hurt Ms Nan Hauser in any way. It just kept gently pushing her further and further away from danger for over ten minutes. She was scared at first because she didn’t know what was going on. It was only later that she realised there was a shark swimming nearby.

    Bodhgaya & Vajrayogini

    I went there to do retreat. I went and I stayed in a hotel called Burmese Hotel. And it was very cheap, 50 rupees a day. That time it was expensive for me. Every day I would take a rickshaw and it would take me about 10 minutes to get to the stupa because the farther you are the cheaper the hotel is. And it is a nice hotel. I have no complaints. And I had a beautiful room. And I did my practices. And every single day I would pack up my sadhana, pack up my mandala set, pack up my thick cushions and everything and I would go to the tree. And I circumambulate around the tree maybe 100 times per day and then I would sit down under a shady area of the compound and do hours and hours of my sadhanas and prayers which I really love.

    Trode Khangsar – A 400 year old Dorje Shugden Chapel in Lhasa | 拉萨400年历史的多杰雄登护法殿—布旦康萨

    As an apology to Dorje Shugden for the murder and the subsequent attempts to destroy him (having mistaken him for a spirit), His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama then composed a praise to Dorje Shugden and created a statue with his own hands to honour and recognize him as a Dharma protector. The 5th Dalai Lama also built this chapel in the heart of Lhasa at the exact same place where Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s body had been cremated. This was told to us by the current caretakers of Trode Khangsar, which continues to function to this day as an active chapel propitiating Dorje Shugden.

    A Medellin undertaker has taken his craft to the next level by launching a “ghostly census” in Colombia’s second-largest city, where his workers have so far compiled 215 spirits, 23 in pictures and videos.


    Colombia undertaker launches ghostly census

    “It’s beyond question that many of the city’s buildings and homes have ghosts. For years, we’ve heard stories about them and we thought the time had come to approach, catalog and classify them through a census,” William Betancur told AFP.

    The enterprising Betancur Funeral Home owner said he began the list a few weeks ago, sending “a team of four funeral parlour workers — properly attired in uniforms — to buildings” around Medellin, 245 kilometers (152 miles) northwest of the capital Bogota.

    “They’ve reported back with 215 ghosts…. Our video and still cameras have captured 23,” he said with pride.

    Anybody can report an otherworldly apparition, he said. “They just have to phone or email us (censofantasmas@hotmail.com) and depending on their physical manifestation — noises, sparkling light shows or images — that’s how they’ll be classified.”

    And the ghost business seems to be catching on.

    Betancur said he gets calls every day from people and companies “from Colombia and abroad” with offers on how to measure the “relationship between the ghost and the place he inhabits” and of state-of-the-art detection equipment.

    The undertaker has a sound business model behind his haunted venture.

    “Our plan is to take a year for the census…. Later we’re thinking of writing a book and, why not, doing a movie or documentary series.”

    Betancur said he came on the idea of a “ghostly census” after clearly sensing his pet dog still going about his daily rounds at the funeral home — four months after he died.

    Although the Central Tibetan Administration (or CTA) claims there is no ban against the worship of Dorje Shugden, it has not stopped them from releasing books, videos and other publications over the last 20 years to campaign against the worship of Dorje Shugden. Peddling their own form of propaganda, they have exploited many members of the Tibetan community and leadership, in an attempt to warn people against Dorje Shugden practice. Is it logical for anyone to direct all of this effort, creativity and resources into something they claim is a non-issue because there’s no ban and there is religious freedom? It doesn’t sound very logical.

    Released on November 14, 2016, the ‘documentary’ features the members of the Tibetan leadership speaking against the practice of Dorje Shugden. They draw unproven links between Dorje Shugden practitioners and the Chinese leadership. Thus, the video paints Shugden worshippers as traitors to the Tibetan people who are deserving of whatever misfortune, discrimination and suppression is directed against them.

    As Malaysian citizens who have freedom of religion, they thought it was highly inappropriate for the Tibetan leaders who profess to be democratic, to appear in videos talking against the religion of their people. And why is an exiled government with some huge political goals to accomplish, so concerned about a religious denomination, practice or sect? And dedicating time, money and resources towards this? They, as a so-called exiled government, should never interfere in anyone’s religion or speak against it. No democratic government ever interferes in people’s personal choices.

    Witches have nothing to do with worshipping something negative, it is more stemming from the old religions that they are in tune with nature and the natural entities that abide there. They being in tune with nature gives them so called powers to heal, or foretell the future.

    The label/ term ‘witch’ comes from the English word “wicca” which means to change, to transform, to modify… people imagine them on broomsticks, with cauldrons and nasty zits on their faces, but they will find it surprising when they realize that there could be a witch amongst them. They are the modern witches!

    There is quite a lot of misconception regarding witches, this video is quite unbiased and helps to explain them, their lifestyle and beliefs in an unbiased way.

    Check out the videos that on witches here http://bit.ly/2D3zsIa. They are very and very informative, interesting and you would enjoy watching.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the old article yet interesting which I came across. Wow…..it is indeed a lovely gift from Pastor David. A gift of the Bionic Woman figurine and Fembot figurine, which brings back memories to many of us. The Bionic Woman is an American science fiction action-adventure television series. It reminds me of my childhood when I used to watch Bionic Woman, a former tennis pro who gains superhuman abilities through bionic implants and prosthetics. Great stories of her using her bionic powers to help and save people. I remembered I do always looked forward to the show.
    A good memories of Bionic Woman that could inspire us to be a better person

    Francesca Stavrakopoulou is a British biblical scholar and broadcaster. Wow…she is a leading expert in religion’s interpretations of the past. While teaching and researching , she mainly focusing on ancient Israelite and Judahite religions, and portrayals of the religious past. Which include in biblical traditions and religious practices most at odds with Western cultural preferences. Fantastic talented lady… looking at the Bible as ancient literature, not as a holy scripture.
    She research interests include social and religious responses to the dead. She did research great documentary videos with true facts. Truly an eye opening documentary which was well presented, logical and objective. Her discoveries were that the ancestors of Judaism and Christianity believed in many gods and even that the God had a wife. There is no belief in a personal god. History and belief of ancient religion been changed for the benefit of people. This documentary reveal the truth the very truth where not many people got it right.
    As a Buddhist, I do believe that there are many gods and nothing is permanent and that change is always possible.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche has supported many projects for monastery. Helping to raise funds for the Gaden Shartse hospital . The Gaden Shartse hospital is a project conceived two and a half years ago by the current Abbot, H.E. Khen Rinpoche. But due to lack of funds to furnish, purchase supplies and medicines it was not in operation. Renowned for his charitable works such as building schools, hospitals and providing assistance and food to the poor and underprivileged, Tsem Rinpoche and his students raised hundred thousand for the hospital to become fully operational.
    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for this wonderful sharing.

    On December 25, 2016, Kechara had the great merits and privilege to offer an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden, His Eminence the 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, affectionately known as Choje-la.

    This residence is called Panglung Ritroe in commemoration of the original Panglung Ritroe in Lhasa, Tibet which was home to the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles. Panglung Ritroe was known to be a very sacred and holy place as the Panglung oracles took trance of numerous Dharma Protectors, such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo there.

    With Dorje Shugden’s blessings, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche decided to create a permanent home here in Kechara Forest Retreat for Choje-la, who has devoted his life to benefiting others without thinking of himself. Rinpoche wanted to offer Choje-la his own place where he has complete privacy and independence, where he can live comfortably with his assistants, where he can host friends and guests, where he can come and go as he likes, and most importantly a place where he can live out the rest of his life if he wants to.

    Caves have an innately mysterious aura. Most are only found some distance away from civilisation, and their yawning mouths seem to call out to visitors… or warn them to stay away. You can tell from the name Kek Lok Tong (Cave of Ultimate Bliss) that this cave is one of the former.

    The Cave of Ultimate Bliss. How could you not want to visit a place with a name as beautiful as this?

    The Cave of Ultimate Bliss is located in Ipoh, the capital of the north-western Malaysian state of Perak. At the turn of the 19th Century, a flourishing tin mining industry triggered Ipoh’s transformation from a sleepy village into a boomtown. In the decades that followed, a wealth of opportunities presented themselves, attracting waves of migrant workers from China and other countries.

    A beautiful Kuan Yin statue outside of the temple. She wasn’t there the last time I visited. There is a koi pond surrounding her, which is very well-maintained. There was some moss growing inside but it looked natural and the water was clean and clear. The fishes are very large and look healthy.

    The earliest records of Kek Lok Tong as a religious site date back to the 1920s. This period coincides with the second tin rush that brought thousands of workers to Malaya, as the peninsula was then known.

    Making the origin of Dorje Shugden into a comic book is a great way to educate people about Dorje Shugden. It is easy to read for children and also for adults who are busy. When we know the origin of Dorje Shugden, it will strengthen our faith in him. He is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri whom we can rely on without any worries.

    Rinpoche always wanted to benefit as many people as possible. Therefore, the comic is made into so many languages. May more people be connected with Dorje Shugden and be protected and blessed.

    What we can learn from this post is humility: even though she was already “up there”, Bionic Woman continue to challenge herself and grow and develop with each challenge she faces. What I like about her the most is that nothing seem to be impossible and she is always very graceful in everything she does
    Thank you for sharing with us your good article and how even a series like Bionic Woman can inspire us to be better humans.

The Unknown

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

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