How To Survive a Flood

Sep 30, 2012 | Views: 2,915

Dear students and friends,

A few months back, Thailand was hit with a horrible flood. The cities and countrysides flooded very quickly, which meant that everyone had to act fast to save their lives. Take a look at the images below that a student of mine sent it to me via email.

I like how the Thai people could adapt so quickly and created such innovative floating devices to help them during the floods! Take a look at how creative they are, making full use of what they have around to survive the flood and continue with their daily life as usual.

Look around you… what can you create as a floating device?

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Floaters made from empty water bottles for this little doggy… cute!

How creative! They made a walk path for shoppers using the shopping trolleys.

Can you count how many trolleys there are??

Self-made raft made by empty buckets

Air filled plastics to make sure everyone stays afloat!

Tying their motorcycles on a high tree to prevent it from being submerged into the flood.

Floaters for this cat!!! Hehe cute

Very creative, they adapt to the situation really fast and are still proud citizens of their country!

Very good idea of wrapping their car to prevent water damage, nice to see everyone helping each other in times of need

I thought we’d only see this in the circus! Looks like these props comes in handy besides entertaining children… hehe…

A different mode of transportation… Creative!!!

A few people were well-prepared. Wrapping their cars with plastic to prevent damage

Wow… that’s one tall bicycle… hehe…

Tuktuk rides modified to be able to ride around the flooded area… nice

Very cute! People in Thailand really love their pets… preparing for the worst, they tie empty bottles to make sure their pets do not drown in the flood

Now that’s one speed boat we wont see often…

We don’t need slippers in the floods! All we need are plastic stools to keep us above water level

Look! A floating public wash room. Floods are messy, but we don’t have to make it worse with human waste floating around hehe…

The exhaust pipe is redirected upwards, making sure that the cars will still function even if the water level rises…

Going to the flooded area well-prepared…

Barrels attached to the side of the car so that it will float in events that the flood reaches levels that are dangerously high

Wow! Look how we can actually make use of all these plastic bottles that we discard without thought… they must have been very valuable when the floods hit Thailand…

Children sitting safely on a pile of empty water bottles…

Polystyrene Volkswagen? hehe…

Paddling through the flood in a modified bicycle

An empty barrel-turned-boat!

    This is really very funny and interesting. Never thought people could come up with such ideas to survive a flood. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing these humorous pictures!😂👍

  2. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Mar 21, 2016 at 1:59 am

    Handy because the Thais stock up on bottled water during the floods, in preparation for lack of clean water and they need to do something with the empty bottles.

    Well, as they say, necessity is the mother of all inventions! While they are creative, these solutions are just symptomatic treatments. That wasn’t the first year it flooded in Thailand and the flooding will continue so as long as the government do not implement a permanent solution for the flooding, which definitely has a financial impact. Treating the resulting health problems costs money, as does the massive clean-up. The floods also affect tourism, keeping people away from the common attractions and businesses.

    So while all of this looks like fun and games, and we should applaud the Thai people for their ingenuity, we should also look deeper at WHY the people are having to come up with their own solutions year after year for the floods.

    Its very funny and educational. I lerned how to be creative and survive

  4. Hayden Chan on Dec 3, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    I find this funny yet educational. I like how they modified their vehicles and prepare for the flood. I wonder how they can adapt so quickly. They also use every day stuff like stools, pipes and so on. I also find the Volkswagen cute.;)

    人类的头脑变通和适应环境的能力太厉害了 !
    可能在物质和金钱的诱惑,发展迅促,导致地球环境大量破坏,天灾越来越频密!
    居住在马来西亚东海岸的我,看到水灾情况一年比一年严重,一家家的家庭遭到破坏,严重到有人伤亡,看到都好心疼!希望佛法可以尽快的净化人心,人类不杀害众生与破坏环境,祈求天下太平无灾难 !

    Dear Rinpoche, these ideas are really good. For some reasons Thailand is flooded almost every year and from the looks, they looked really calm and happy. I think we Malaysians will panic if there is a big flood like this in Malaysia. But then again, we can copy Thailand’s smart ideas of staying dry from a flood.

    Dear Rinpoche, they sure are very creative! And yes Rinpoche, they can adapt into the situation easily. I’m really curious about how does boat in the last picture work because the boat and the engine is made from a empty barrel and giant bottles. I’m really blessed that there are no natural disaster in Malaysia.

  10. Ck siah on Dec 20, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    谢谢仁波切分享。泰国是佛教国国家,人民从小就接受佛法和学习佛法。基本上都受到佛法的加持和开示, 所以他们多数都很知足常乐和安居乐业。遇到灾难时都是用平常心看待,也不会怨天怨地,这就是佛法的智慧。

  11. Tong sunsun on Dec 19, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    泰国人真是乐天派,遭遇大水灾还可以如此创意。能够在苦中作乐总比无事生端,乘机打家劫舍来得有智慧。祈愿他们安居乐业快乐天成。

  12. jerry_sito on Dec 19, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示

    非常开心看见泰国的朋友,无论遇见什么问题,都运用他们无比创意的智慧来解决问题

    许多时候,当问题发生的时候,许多人都会不断地抱怨或静静的呆着,等待问题自己解决或等别人来帮助

    在娑婆世界里,我们因着我们的业果而受生,许多的状况或问题,都是来自我们的业果,倘若我们当我们遇见问题时,能抱住正能量来思考,用善智慧来解决与面对问题,那不是很好吗?

    一直很喜欢泰国,佛法在泰国是如此地盛兴,造就泰国的国民都有着一颗善良与智慧的心,祈愿佛法在泰国增长并永在,祈愿泰国人们能常听闻佛法学习佛法,祈愿他们一切吉祥如意

    祈愿尊贵的仁波切,长驻在世,常转法轮

    It is really amazing how creative the Thais are. They use items that most people take it as rubbish, and they have transformed it into things that are so useful during a flood.

    This clearly shows that if we are being placed in a critical situation we will be able to think how to save ourselves and our loved ones due to our selfish minds. Which also mean that many of us have the capability to think and act in intelligent ways, but we are not willing to due to our laziness and negative Karma.

    WOW, these people are so creative it is actually funny 🙂 my favourite one was when they raised the height of the motor bikes so that they could go through the flood without any damage. I thought that was a very smart and good idea. But i have to say, all of these ways are very good, its nice to see people who are so smart. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  16. Girlie OOI on Apr 25, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    When you are pushed to fight for your survival, your brain goes into “overtime” mode and creativity comes to the fore.

  17. Sean Wang on Mar 8, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    These pictures are hilarious. They are amazing sports by not complaining all day bout how bad the flood is but rather embracing the fact that they will have to bear with it. They have this positive outlook on because they have the Dharma in their minds.

  18. beatrix ooi on Feb 19, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    They are very creative! They are very inspiring because under such difficult circumstances, they are still able to face it happily and quietly. This is the spirit we should practise.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  19. edward ooi on Feb 15, 2013 at 1:11 am

    I like how the people that lived in Thailand can stay calm and create stuff that can save their lives when float rises. They even use empty bottles to wrap around their pets so that they won’t drowned, they must have really love and care about their pets. I hope that there will be no more disaster in the world anymore.

  20. Milly on Feb 7, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    When faced with adversities and fighting for survival, the mind will be pushed to think of every possible ways to get out of it. Plastics though not good for the environment proved to be very useful in times of flood. One lesson I learn from the pictures are those pets with the empty plastic bottles tied onto their body. Really, animals must not be forgotten in times of calamities.

  21. jennifer on Feb 7, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    The Thais are super creative ! And they must have a huge stock of empty plastic bottles!!!
    Love the way they made floaters with these empty bottles for their pets – glad to know that the Thai loves and cares for their pets safety.

    Necessity is the mother of invention . I am looking around me and i think the only thing that will float, in case there is a flood , are the large 5 gallon plastic bottles that we use on the water dispenser, and perhaps empty buckets !! I can put my smaller babies (mini schnauzers) in them and swim or wade out to safety with them, and for my larger babies, tie the 5 gallon bottles on them.

    The photos do make me think what i can use in such a situation !!!

  22. Bryan Ho on Feb 5, 2013 at 2:08 am

    This is kinda of cute, most of the time we doesn’t need a lot of money but if we have effort and creativity a lot of things can be achieve.

    A lot of time we will set rules and regulation to restrict ourselves not to do this or that. We said no to ourselves before we even tried to work something out.

    What will you do if you also face this serious flood in wherever you are but you are facing financial problem ? Will you do something to solve the problem or just let the flood to destroy everything without any prevention ? I believe most of the people will think of ways to solve the problems.

    Use the same theory in life, sometimes when we are facing certain problem, do we just stay still to the problem without doing anything or we actually think so ways to solve it ? Most of the time we will wait for others to solve our problem, but why don’t we take up the burden to help others?

    This is a very interesting post and I just wanna to share with everyone how I feel.

  23. Jessica Yap on Jan 11, 2013 at 2:21 am

    Hehe the first picture of the dog in the plastic bottles is so cute!! I think the Thais did a great job staying together and keeping calm and collected during this unfortunate disaster. Hopefully none of them were seriously injured.. May they be well and protected by the 3 Jewels always..
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  24. Jean Mei on Jan 4, 2013 at 12:48 am

    Those above are so ingenious! I wouldn’t think of making half the things there, like the pathway to the supermarket, or using stools as raised platform shoes haha. I don’t know what I’d use as a floatation device if Malaysia was flooded. Perhaps I may just cling onto someone else’s lol

    Some of the floatation devices above are so well thought out – like the last one! The man used a barrel and turned it into a boat, together with steering and leg rests.

    It’s great to see that at the face of adversity, the Thai are not taking the situation bitterly but just getting on with life.

  25. Joy on Dec 29, 2012 at 3:14 am

    I really like how they came up with the idea of using mineral water bottles as life jackets/floaties for the doggies and cat. Very cute & creative indeed x

  26. Joy on Dec 29, 2012 at 3:10 am

    Wow these are pretty amazing and innovative of the Thais! They really can get very creative and make do with whatever they have. This is one of things I’ve always admired about Thai people. They are artistic, innovative and very clever. Even though they don’t have a lot and not so advance compare to us in Malaysia, but they are very very creative.

    Perhaps that is why they are creative because they have to think of ways and make use of whatever they have, hence imagination and creativity kicks in. Kudos to them and their positive attitude, even something negative like “flood” could create something positive. Something we can learn from.

  27. Junior on Nov 27, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Very interesting to see, I like this post and pictures.

  28. Darren Kechara on Nov 25, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    It’s interesting people come out with all sort of creative kit for the floods. I like how they use trolley as a walk path and the rack made from plastic bottles.

  29. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 12, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Very interesting article indeed, this article shows how strong our adaption are, and how much talent we have, these people may not be ‘successful’ in being rich or so, but their capability of surviving from natural disaster is definitely much more powerful than those who owns a lot.

    I love the idea of Polystyrene Volkswagen, so creative, being in disasters can still have fun.. haha, they are great man…

  30. Cynthia Lee on Nov 10, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    I am super amazed with all the ideas the Thais came up with. Life definitely goes on whatever situation we find ourselves in. The human mind has a survival instinct. When thrown into difficult situations, we can start thinking and utilising what we have around us and make the most out of it. If daily we are faced with difficulties, I think it will do people a lot of good. Hehe.

    On the serious tone, many people do face difficulties daily. We too can be creative and start thinking how to assist them just like how Rinpoche comes up with many creative solutions in Rinpoche’s teachings to help others. If everyone cares to think in the survival instinct, we can do great things too.

  31. Milly on Nov 9, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    It shows that when we are faced with adversity, the human brain will start to function more quickly and urgently. Jerks us out from our comfort zone. The dogs and cats look so cute with the plastic bottles tied round their bodies. How innovative.

  32. Sheryl KH (JB) on Nov 8, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Interestingly, people who have been through hardships tend to be able to overcome life’s obstacles better. If we compare what has happened to Thailand to other more developed countries, we can see the difference in attitudes towards hardships in life.

    I love all the solutions that Thai residents came out with when facing difficulty. These solutions are all very practical.

    May we all be able to embrace hardships with patience, kindness and trusts in Buddhas.

  33. lewkwanleng on Oct 30, 2012 at 3:58 am

    The flood has become so frequent in Thailand nowadays, and it has kind of become part of their lives. I must say the clever use of plastic bottles to float in the water is brilliant, and plastic wraps for the cars are really something new for me 🙂

    However, what amazed me the most is the considerate efforts in saving the animals during this difficult period. Instead of just worrying about own car, house, personal belongings, they have also taken care of their animals, which I am very glad to see.

    My prayers to you guys in Thailand and hope the flood subside very soon, and wish that it will not come back again.

  34. AdelineTan on Oct 24, 2012 at 2:45 am

    Never knew that recycle plastic bottles can be so useful in time of flood disaster,something to learn from the Thai people,they are so creative.

  35. Siong Woan on Oct 23, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    I always admire Thais for their endless creativity and enjoy watchingbtv advertisements created by them, but THIS is real creativity and practicality rolled into one. It also shows how easily they adapt to changes and able to face challenges with totally optimism.

  36. Lucas Roth on Oct 21, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    wow these people were really creative and they are safe. the best part is that the animals and humans and be protected and you never know when a flood is going to hit so thailand was smart to prepare.

  37. Abby F on Oct 10, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Truly inspiring! I believe that there might be those who get scared and sad when bad things happen on them, but there is always another type of person who can really turn bad things to good. Just like these Thai people, their spirit is truly inspiring! Leave the sorrow aside and embrace the bad, then good things will come! 🙂

  38. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 10, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Innovative by the Thais they sure know how to overcome problems and obstacles. Some of their ideas are really ingenious.

  39. June Tang (KHJB) on Oct 8, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this posting.Thai peoples really very smart,they can find this creative way to solve their problem by using all recycle items !! We have much to learn from them,kudos for them all ^_^

  40. Jutika on Oct 6, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Dear Rinpoche the Thai people are indeed very creative and innovative people which always have wonderful ideas. Though there was a flood this wonderful Thai people have managed to overcome the floods. This people should be proud of what they can do!!! How i wish i could make all of this transports. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story.

  41. sky81 on Oct 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Very interesting to see how people use various ways to move from a place to another place in the flooded zone. The flood there lasted for months and people living there cannot leave their home because large areas were flooded, from home to workplace.

    I find that pictures contain many plastic bottles, people are using bottles and containers everywhere to move around. More importantly from these photos we can see how they cope with their difficult circumstances.

  42. Uncle Eddie on Oct 6, 2012 at 10:59 am

    As can be seen and learned from the blog on Thailand’s methods of flood survival, though some seem comical, others with a hilarious sense of humour, still flood survival awareness gives you the tools to learn how you can protect your homes and property from floods. Floods can be caused by many factors such as intensive rainfalls, massive amounts of water overflowing rivers, lakes, or even the seas. Excessive or continous rainfalls is the first sign that we should notice, that may occur. Flood survival preparedness is the key to keeping anyone’s family and property safe. So take serious note and heed the warnings, get prepared before its too late. Take no chances as shown in the aforesaid preparations; many a live can be safe!

  43. verontung on Oct 5, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    哇,真的是好一句:马死落地行!人被逼到一个境界就会想办法生存。
    但也从他们的脸上看得出,即使是在恶劣环境也都努力生活,帮助身边甚至动物们,而不是怨天怨地怨上帝。

  44. patsy on Oct 4, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Wow, the Thais are super duper creative! Empty bottles sure do come handy in time of emergency!

  45. David Lai on Oct 2, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    The old adage of survival of the fittest no longer applies in today’s volatile world. It is more like survival of those who are quickest to adapt. I think the Thai people in Bangkok have developed simply brilliant ways to ensure life goes on as normal. Instead of lamenting their water-logged problems, they just find simple but brilliant ways to make things work.

  46. Chris Tan on Oct 2, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    OMG!!! They are really creative. In the short time period, they can re-use all these recycle items to keep them to survive including for the little being. This is a very good example for us to learn how to survive when facing all this problem.

    Basically, I love Thai people a lot, also they are very creative in advertisement and video side and one thing the Thai people are really super very friendly.

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting an inspiring article here.

  47. judy lam on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    We can admire and at times laugh at the Thais’ various innovative ways of saving themselves in floods. I admire most the Thais’ tenacity in adverse situations like this, and yet carry on with their daily lives. We are very fortunate in Malaysia, and have much to learn from them. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  48. grace (KHJB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Under difficulty circumstances really can push the people to come out more ideas to overcome the difficulty.the Thai people show us even in such situation, yet they facing it with positive reaction.

  49. Carmen Lin on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    These picture really showed how they are able to adapt in difficult situations,what I think is people in Thailand are getting used to the happening of floods such as Japanese got used to earthquakes. Remember the disastrous flood happened in Thailand in year 2011? I think from there on they’ve learnt their lesson and has instilled the knowledge of adaption method when floods occurred. All of the innovation are made of very primitive stuffs and technology but proven amazingly useful. Good Job Thais!!

  50. Wah Ying on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Wow, it’s so creative!

    The plastic stools turned “slippers” and trolley bridge is superb. Kudos to all creative people who turn disaster to time to showcase their creativity, creativity that saves lives.

    I like this post and pictures!

  51. Ong Moh Mei on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:18 am

    Have to give it to the Thais. They are super creative. It’s very inspiring when you see people in distress situation just adapt and get on with their life. It makes all my problems seem so petty.

  52. Li Kheng on Sep 30, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    This positive view of things must stem from the long exposure to the teachings and energy of Buddhadharma. It is taught, the focus or importance is not in what happens to us but how we respond to it. The Thai people has certainly responded constructively to the disaster that struck their country. They created instead of reacted.

    May this simple but meaningful post teach us all something!

  53. Sofi on Sep 30, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Desperate situations definitely brings out the creativities to help make things easier. Better keep some empty water bottles around. Very handy!

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

    There may have been a chance for a civilization to start billions of years before life began on Earth as discovered by scientists. Several discoveries and theories from some of the greatest minds in science point to the likelihood that there is something beyond out there in the universe. I do believe that we are not alone in the universe. Well, there many on going research that has taken place to look for signs of extra terrestrial life such as aliens. Scientist have been using telescope and specimen data to radios to detect and send communication signals. Currently, scientist do not have any evidence to support that aliens exist but the research work still going on with the discovery of a varieties of beings in the universal . Stories of the sighting of aliens and other species by eye witnesses yet to proof their existence. Researcher and scientists have not given up hope to research for evidence. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddha Manjushri is very compassionate. He will manifest in the forms that can benefit us. In this case, he manifested as an enlightened Dharma protector to help us remove our obstacles so we can practise and have realiation on Buddha’s teachings.

    I have read many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people including Tsem Rinpoche. Kechara is growing and flourishing because of the assistance from Dorje Shugden. As long as our motivation is right, Dorje Shugden will provide a conducive environment to fulfil our wishes.

    A Personal Account of Events with My Teacher – Honouring the Potential in All Sentient Beings

    Rinpoche’s bond with animals is even more palpable. Abandoned dogs find not only shelter but a loving home wherever Rinpoche is. Injured and unwanted birds find healing and a safe haven created to resemble their natural habitat. Fish are given clean, pure water and plenty of food. Even insects are not forgotten. Most important of all, their surroundings are designed to leave positive Dharma imprints in their mind streams and help them gain good rebirths.

    My mother’s White Tara

    The previous Telo Rinpoche had lived in Mongolia and during the Communist upheaval in his country, he was imprisoned along with many other monks and religious figures. Telo Rinpoche prayed to this image of White Tara, which he had with him and in the middle of the night, his cell doors miraculously swung open and he was able to just walk out. Later, with the help of some American scientists, he escaped and travelled to the United States where he connected with the Mongolian-Kalmyk community there, which included my parents.

    Stories from a Chela – Real Transformation

    “Rinpoche’s drive to create a lasting mental change in a person’s life is nothing but pure compassion. Rinpoche certainly doesn’t get anything out of the person changing to become a better person, in fact, it often takes an emotional and physical toll on Rinpoche himself. Yet, Rinpoche goes out of his way to help his students and others to the best of his ability. Rinpoche does this in a number of ways, I’ll only touch on a few” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

    Searching for the Loch Ness Monster

    “As a child, I remember sitting next to my dad watching TV and some of the only programmes that my dad actually enjoyed were documentaries. My dad loves learning about things, whether it be building something, handicraft, or even about the natural environment or mythological creatures. One of my earliest memories is of watching a documentary about the famed Loch Ness Monster, affectionately called Nessie.” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

    Thank you for sharing this article on Lama Zopa and his view on Dorje Shugden practice. Lama Zopa himself has given up Dorje Shugden practice but he did not say other Lamas who are still practising Dorje Shugden is wrong.

    I think Lama Zopa is trying to tell everyone it is important to follow the instruction of one’s guru. When we view our guru as a Buddha, he cannot be wrong. Therefore, whatever practice he gives us cannot be wrong. From our side, we have to follow the instruction diligently.

    Wow…..interesting read and watch those videos. It might be scary to some. I always find stories related to ghost , paranormal and mysteries interesting even though at times scary too. In folklore, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear to the living. All cultures around the world after all do believe in spirits as that those unseen beings survive death to live in another lower realm. Yes I too believed they do exist, do no harm , they will also do harm to us. What we can do to help the unseen being is by doing prayers for them to set them free. Well despite the rise of science, social media and public education many still do believe that the presence of wandering ghosts during ghost month can cause accidents to the living.
    Interesting watch , thank you for this sharing.

    Wow …beautiful art paintings of Fasting Buddha Shakyamuni, Sujata and Dorje Shugden. Well painted with contrast color in painting. Buddha Shakyamuni founded Buddhism in ancient India more than 2,500 years ago. Attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya where thousands of pilgrims will visit this Holy place year round. Here Buddha Shakyamuni is depicted with Sujata and Dorje Shugden as the fasting Buddha who had fasted for days before becoming enlightened.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Brahmarupa, a benign form of the wrathful deity Mahakala, is shown as a bearded nomadic ascetic. Mahakala Bramanarupa is one of over 70 different deities of the Mahakala type. It is a protector of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Brahmarupa is in a form of Four-Faced Mahakala, propitiated by many high lamas, yogis and practitioners. Here it is depicted with by the four dakinis of his entourage and the Powerful protector Dorje Shugden.

    Thanks for the sharing the wonderful experience with a lovely team who helped to achieve and successfully putting up Rinpoche blog. Great work, I have been reading a lot from them.

    Childhood is the most innocent phase of an individual’s life. With the passage of time, it fades into adolescence and adulthood. Yet the sweet memories of childhood linger on. Memories get us through the hard days and keep us chipper in the good ones. The past is what makes us who we are. It shapes how we act, how we treat others, and simply just what we do on a day to day basis. Memories are the little things that keep this world running smoothly.

    Childhood memories plays a very important role in our life, a lot of concern, a lot love and care. Every movements are wonderful and teaches us a beautiful journey of life.

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

After the Bird Liberation, we proceeded with Dorje Shugden puja. Just before we started our puja, Pastor Patsy gave us a short Dharma Sharing. Pastor spoke about Dharma practice in these days and reminded us to always keep our samaya with Guru intact. To honour our promises, reduce our worldly activities and practice Dharma strongly. Thank you Pastor for the valuable advice~Jacinta, KPSG
