(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear spiritual friends around the world,

Reading the deeds and life stories of great masters, mahasiddhas and teachers are really something that is necessary on a regular basis. We have everything surrounding us that beckons us to fail in our spiritual practice and therefore we need every bit of blessings and inspiration from great beings such as this master. Every bit of inspiration helps so much. Although it is a obituary on this perfected master Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche, it still very beautiful and I am sure you will enjoy reading.

I very much admire this master Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche but I have never heard of him till around just perhaps a few years back. I really like his promotion of vegetarian way of life as part of being his strong Buddhist practice. He encouraged all his disciples and those who met him to become vegetarian. He advocated not hurting animals and he released millions of animals throughout his life from slaughter and captivity. He also lived the life of a yogi and preferred to live in caves and as a measure of his compassion he avoided riding horses as much as possible and walked instead so he would not cause discomfort to horses. Such expression of compassion really shows the depth of Buddha’s teachings embodied by this master.

I thought I would share about him here so you may be blessed. May you all be blessed and be inspired. May everyone practice great compassion, wisdom and never hurt any animals nor eat them.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Jadrel Sangay Dorji (1913-2015)

January 9, 2016

Prolific builder of hermitages and stupas and a Bodhisattva life-saver

Obituary : In his century plus long life, he was quite free from worldly activities, and was aptly titled a renunciate – Jadrel. He built few monastic centres in a hectic period when the energies of his contemporaries were substantially consumed by mobilization of offerings for construction of monastic colleges and their institution building.

Great siddhas and lamas of the past pitched tents in temporary sites to teach freely in gatherings before they went into retreat in wild nature, he reminded. He viewed establishment of gorgeous centres as a sign of dharma decline. He recognized just one reincarnation and lent further recognitions to some reincarnations others already recognized. Though much sought after, as he grew older he shunned contacts. His modest home on the sun-bathed Pharping hill drew nevertheless people who left after viewing it, not the liberated man inside. His two daughters, in particular elder yogini daughter Sarwasati, attended on him along with disciples whom he tasked to be multi-skilled.

Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche releasing birds.

Once a crowd stood in drizzle in his mucky lawn waiting for him to emerge on his terrace, hopeful like wanderlust struck tourists wishing to get a glimpse of a legendary royalty. On second day, he did briefly in the evening, preceded by a cane chair bearing man in shorts. He, with his tall and erect frame, clothed in white crumpled lungi-like wear, followed. He briefly enunciated, from far and above on his terrace, on the abridged Bar Sam Droel sum (shortened versions of barched lamsel, sampa lhundrup and droelma) and told them that the entire dharma has been condensed into them. Then Jadrel quickly vanished indoor where he mostly read Kuenkhen Zoduen (Treasuries of Longchen) or other Nyingthig works, such as Jigme Lingpa’s Terchoe, and practiced immaculately in solitude. He was supreme in Longchen Nyingthig. He passed away in this room in Pharping house, naturally, not from any illness, at 5.35 pm on the 30th of December.

The neighbourhood of Pharping consisting of Yangleyshey and Drollu rose to prominence after Jadrel came to Yangleyshey. The mixed castes of Nepalese, and nuns and monks scattered across the impressively build monasteries in this area owe enormously to Jadrel. Like a humanist who appealed universally across peoples and cultures, all ethnicities like Chhetris and Sherpas respected him. He chatted with Pharping goat and cattle herders and enjoyed cups of tea from coolie dhabas when he was in Salugari, his winter home. Jadrel came as a pilgrim to Yangleshey, built a meditation house. He emphasized Yangleyshey as an epicenter of Vajrayana. As a matter of fact, there is much that is wanting as regards the sanctity and hygiene of the place, in spite of the fact that it is one of two caves in Nepal hallowed by meditation by Guru Rimpoche. Its condition is a far cry from any holy place in Bhutan. Yet Yangleyshey is now a widely known place on the Buddhist map. Since Jadrel meditated in Yangleyshey and settled in Pharping, Pharping and Drollu’s spirituality-based real estate fortunes went meteoric. The once idyllic patch of pastureland of Drollu belonging to the Nepalese Durbar, from where fresh milk was carried to the court, have turned into a shimmering pinnacle of Himalayan Buddhist temples’ architecture.

Jadrel was in Paro Takstang in 1958 where he, under the patronage of HM the Queen Phuntsho Choden, renovated Ugen Tsemo temple. According to a brief note on his accomplishments by Shekar Jamyang Tenpa, Jadrel also installed a new statue of Guru Dorji Droleod in Paro Takstang cave at that time. Some three decades later, in 1985, he was in Bay Langdra in Bhutan. Later in 1988, Jadrel opened Bay Langdra Hermitages where His Eminence Katho Sithu and many other meditators came to live. The previous Katho Sithu Ngawang Palzang and Sera Khando were the young Jadrel’s early lamas while in Tibet.

Jadrel was extremely focused on founding drubdra (place for meditation students), helped sometimes by his local patrons. In these hermitages he trained and initiated practitioners in three-year long meditation. Mostly located in Nepal, but a few in India, he founded Dzobangla Hermitages in 1961, Sonadaar Nunnery Hermitages in 1965, Yangleyshey in 1971, Salbari in 1975, Tinchula in 1978, Yolmo Dashamelug in 1981, Yolmo Drodpadong in 1983, Yolmo Neyding in 1984, Godawari Hermitages in 1985, Sikkim Taktse in 1990, Daki Yongduling in 1993, Chumig Jangchu in 1994, Yolmokhang in 1995, and Yolmo Sermothang in 1996.

Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche blessing fishes to be released.

Between building a network of choeten (stupa) and hermitages, and training disciples in meditation, Jadrel had one saintly passion he took to epic proportion. Every 15th and the 30th of a lunar month, Jadrel bought fish in huge bulk from numerous fisheries and fish markets by placing advance order, and released them into freedom and life. His close aides Damchoe Dorji from Tibet and Kuenchap from Bhutan estimated that in 2014 alone, Jadrel released about three million fish of various sizes. The total number is astonishing when yearly averages are aggregated over the last 50 years. Jadrel’s fish release routine began soon after he turned vegetarian in Bodh Gaya in 1960. His tsampa thugpa diet did not change much throughout his life. Mushrooms and seaweed gave him greater appetite. His insistence led Bodh Gaya Monlam Chenmo to become vegetarian by 1990. His hermitages and life-giving fish release were mostly financed by general offerings by locals, for funerary prayers or rituals for the living. He spurned foreign donations, the main path of efflorescence of private monastic architecture and paintings today. For instance, eighth or so years ago, a faithful foreigner offered a pile of $ 300,000. Jadrel declined to accept, far from wanting or needing it. His disciples ravenously thought their projects needed it, but they had to let go.

Jadrel’s life-giving routine twice a month made him frequent Trisuli Khola near Pharping and Teesta near Salubari. But the scale of life-saving he undertook was done more favourably in Kolkota’s estuaries. Every month, Jadrel and his aides took a train, with huge barrels of fish, to Kolkota, and released hundreds of thousands of them into Diamond Harbour. His stature even in Diamond Harbour is mythic. He became perhaps the World’s Fish Procurer-in-Chief but with a difference: to free them divinely again into rivers, harbor or ocean. If the same fish were procured, released and caught again in a cycle, it did not matter as every moment of longevity counted. Jadrel also saved goats, buffaloes, and poultry birds but where they would go after saving became an increasing constraint. There is, however, pastureland full of goats in Yolmo saved by him. He scripted a short new prayer he incanted while releasing fish or saving other lives.

Himalayan Buddhism talks about ethical debt to beings incurred knowingly or unknowingly (tshor dang ma tshor) in our present and previous lives. There are two categories of debts: karmic debt (lan chags) and debt of the flesh (sha ‘khyon) (Lhatshuen Namkha Drimed). Debt of the flesh is accumulated because other beings are broken into pieces and eaten, under the heavy chain of man’s food. The common dzongkha and Tibetan word soeltum (gsol ‘krum) for meat curry, literally meaning crushed and swallowed reveals it all. The replenishment of the waters with life is a deeply compassionate, ethical, aesthetic and ecological act, and Jadrel combined all those self-transcending qualities. As Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche wrote, “The passing of Chatrel Sangye Rinpoche marks the end of an era.” May the light of his life lived in a refreshed old-paradigm inspire many future jadrels.

Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche says: If you take meat, it goes against the vows one takes in seeking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Because when you take meat you have to take a being’s life. So I gave it up.

Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche says: Meat, the sinful food, is not permitted according to the three vows: the vows of individual liberation, the Bodhisattva vows and the tantric vows. Thus Buddha stated: “I have never approved, do not approve, and will never approve of a meat diet.” He declared: “my followers must never eat meat.”

Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche considered that becoming a vegetarian can be a gradual path. Many of his students do not eat meat, fish and egg, nor drink alcohol, but some of them do.

    Kyabje Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche is one of the most accomplished Tibetan Buddhist yogis of our time. Regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen yogis ,he lived in a simple dwelling without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practices what he preaches without compromise and as a result he is beloved and respected by people of all faiths. Spending a great deal most of his time practicing in caves . Thousands of people in the Himalayan region consider Rinpoche to be their root guru because through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. During his life Chatral Rinpoche was one of the most vocal opponents of meat eating in Tibetan Buddhism. He encouraged followers to go on vegetarian. For many years he had been buying fish in huge bulk from numerous fisheries and fish markets and released them into Diamond Harbour in Kolkota’s estuaries. He founded and restored many meditation retreat centers in Bhutan, India and Nepal as well as overseen the construction of several stupas. Inspiring indeed. He left a legacy that will undoubtedly live on for many generations.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing .

    Inspiring article of a Lama Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche, one of the greatest Dzogchen masters of all time. He was an accomplished Tibetan Buddhist yogi known for his great realization and strict discipline. He practices what he preaches without compromise and as a result is beloved throughout the Himalayan region by people of all faiths. He is truly a great master who advocate vegetarianism and had encouraged his students to go on vegetarian. Interesting read of a GREAT lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

  3. Jacinta Goh on Feb 1, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    We do have a choice nowadays. Not one but many. We do not have to ‘kill’ in order to feed our hungry stomach. I will not be mad for those who are still having meat as their daily routine as I have been one of them previously. During those days, I didn’t aware that animals are being ‘killed’ for our consumption. It was more like God’s given right. However, meeting Rinpoche’ s blog has turned my life around. I bow down to H.H. Chatral Sangye Dorjee Rinpoche for His outspoken and a great supporter for vegetarianism.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article.

  4. Samfoonheei on Nov 12, 2016 at 4:45 pm

    Wonderful and inspiring article about this lama Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche.He built many monasteries for his student to meditate and mean time encourage them to go on vegetarianism and save animals.He encouraged all his disciples and those who met him to become vegetarian Jadrel’s compassion towards animals was immeasurable .Every month, Jadrel and his aides released hundreds of thousands of fishes and blessing them before releasing so as others animal saved.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very inspiring article.

    It is very joyful to see animals being set free and given a lease of life.

    The example of Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche is truly worth emulating. Perhaps one could stress that in many regions of Tibet which is barren and bereft of conditions for the growth of vegetables and plants, one has to take meat as sustenance. But since many lamas, monks and Rinpoches have migrated to other less extreme circumstances that makes vegetables, tubers, mushrooms are available it does not make any sense to carry on with a diet consisting of meat. Somehow the bodhisattva vows don’t go hand in hand with the consumption of meat.

    • Wan Wai Meng on Sep 13, 2016 at 12:57 am

      This Lama also composed special prayers to bless the animals that will be released as part of animal liberation.

  6. Stella Cheang on Aug 4, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    With due respect to Buddhist who are non-vegetarian, I feel strongly with what Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche said. “If you take meat, it goes against the vows one takes in seeking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Because when you take meat you have to take a being’s life…”

    Refrain from harming another living being is the first of the five basic Buddhist percepts. As simple as this percept may sound, many people still continue to unknowingly (or knowingly) consume meat which is directly harming the life of another sentient being. It is actually a painful karmic debts to repay later on.

    I am happy to see another revered lama shared the same passion as our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in promoting vegetarianism and being compassionate towards animal. I am saddened for his passing but rejoice that Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche had led a virtuous life until the ripe old age of 102 years old.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article with us.

  7. Sharon Ong on Apr 28, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    Another inspirational role model for us to emulate. Am particularly touched by Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche’s compassion towards animals, not only through advocating vegetarianism but also through his choice of walking as much as possible instead of riding on a horse so that he would not cause discomfort to horses.

    Thank you for another wonderful post, Rinpoche.

  8. Pastor Adeline on Apr 26, 2016 at 6:33 am

    Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche is the mirror of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche; both advocate vegetarianism and compassion dining with action, among many other good deeds they do. Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche showed dharma in action, led a life dedicating for the welfare of beings and preservation of the lineage through his body, speech, and mind – a guiding light many has followed and devoted appreciatively. He is both hermit and “socialite” who did retreats, restorations, building works, animals liberations, etc.

    In my limited knowledge, it is uncommon for a Tibetan lama to promote vegetarianism and save animals due to the limitation of Tibet’s high altitude. Hence, many have a perception that Tibetan Buddhists support meat eating. Thanks to Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, Drubwang Rinpoche, and other lamas that this wrong perception is now challenged and broken.

    One of the core teachings of the Buddha is compassion. By enjoying another being’s blood and flesh is fully against that teaching. Being a vegetarian is good, but even better to have others to opt for the same choice which Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche did successfully. Vegetarianism is the same as any other practices that can be a gradual path which is easier to be done comparatively. Do consider.

  9. kb thapa on Apr 26, 2016 at 1:06 am

    In Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche life he build monasteries in many places for students to study and passionately advocated vegetarianism to the the world. This is the qualities of great lama who serves the community non stop very compassionate lama..

  10. Pastor David Lai on Apr 25, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    This is a wonderful example of a lama who advocates Buddhism and spirituality in general. It seems that his entire lifetime was spent on proliferating his lineage that benefit many who seek spirituality and on advocating vegetarianism as a practical manner to actualize the teachings on compassion, love and Bodhichita.

    I believe that vegetarianiam transcends faith and is really an ethical practice of kindness and non-harming of animals. Animals unlike human beings who are undowed with speech, are basically unable to defend or express their sufferings. It is only reasonable that ethical and self-conscious individuals strive towards non-harming and evntually abolishing the exploitation of animals.

    In the end, as I have mentioned in other blog comments of similar nature, how civilized our society should be determined by the lessening of the harming and exploitation of animals.

  11. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 25, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    Jadrel Rinpoche exudes very good qualities, he is truly a great master. It’s very rare to see lamas who advocate vegetarianism because I think in Tibet, they have to consume meat in order to keep themselves warm during the winter. Therefore, it’s almost impossible to go on a vegetarian diet as there aren’t that much vegetables in Tibet.

    And what makes him remarkable is that he does not only advocate vegetarianism but he also walks the talks, through animal liberation. It’s very beautiful to see high lamas like Jadrel Rinpoche rescuing animals because this again shows that they are compassionate.

  12. Pastor Loh Seng Piow on Apr 25, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    This lama’s work is worth rejoicing. Besides building monasteries for the people, which is the “default” job of a lama, Jadrel Sangay Dorji also saved many lives and advocated vegetarianism. This is admiring, especially when he was not born a vegetarian. Many monks (specifically non-Hinayana tradition) nowadays still eat meat, this was fine during Buddha’s days when monks begged for food with their alms, but nowadays monks go to the market to buy raw food to cook, they have a choice, so why still choose meat? Before talking about compassion, one should at least start with becoming a vegetarian, or better still, a vegan first.

  13. Vinnie Tan on Apr 25, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    The story of Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche is just such an inspiration to all of us.

    Just like H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, they were not born as vegetarians. Yet, because of their love and compassion towards all sentient beings they teach all of us that we should be vegetarians because we should not be killing any living being at all as they might be our parents in our previous lives.

    Animal liberation is just amazing as it gives the lives of these animals that chance of freedom. They will get a second chance to live freely and not be harmed in any way.

    By the end of the day if we constantly crave for meat, it is just like eating another human being as we will all just be slabs of meat one day that will be thrown around. It is just like what we do to animals. It is not justifiable that it is alright to do things like that for animals, but not for human beings.

    It would only be more sound if we do not consume meat at all.

  14. Pastor Han Nee on Apr 25, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring life story of Jadrel Sangay Dorji Rinpoche (1913-2015).He passionately advocated vegetarianism,and to show his compassionate care for them, he also relentlessly sought to release as many animals, fish and birds as he could.I like what it says here about him releasing the fish into the waters : “He became perhaps the World’s Fish Procurer-in-Chief but with a difference: to free them divinely again into rivers, harbor or ocean. If the same fish were procured, released and caught again in a cycle, it did not matter as every moment of longevity counted!”

    There was this instinct in him for simplicity. He would not lavishly build imposing centers or monasteries. He preferred unadorned simplicity in life. He preferred to build places of meditation and hermitages where he could train his students to engage in long three year meditation. He preferred the training of the mind of his students in intensive meditation.

    His death was the passing of a great siddha, yogi, Lama and a great vegetarian, who strongly and compassionately advocated saving animals through his own countless acts of liberating innumerable animals, birds and fish.

  15. Pastor Antoinette on Apr 25, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    What an inspiration!

    One focus of Jadrel Sangay Dorji life was to build monasteries in Nepal and India, places for students to meditate and study and in doing so, he has changed the life of many for the better.

    Another highlight of his life was saving uncountable lifes. Jadrel Sangay Dorji has not been born vegetarian but when he started eating vegetarian, he did much more than stopping eating meat and fish. He is known for releasing countless animals into freedom and inspiring others to do the same. On a regular basis, twice a month a huge amount of animals has been released.

    H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche inspires everyone to become vegetarian and to not harm any kind of life. In Kechara, animal liberations are done on a regular basis. It is important to educate people and through this blog, https://www.tsemrinpoche.com, the word is spread all over the world.

    I rejoice for the hard work Jadrel Sangay Dorji has done and that he benefited countless beings and by doing so inspiring many others to do the same.

    It is important to read about the deeds and life stories of great masters to be inspired and do more for others. Thank You Rinpoche for showing us the way.

  16. Li Kheng on Apr 25, 2016 at 10:38 am

    People alway tell me they need inspiration. I think the world is not short of inspiring people, we just need to know where to look.

    A man who lives by example:

    Love for all living beings: he advocates vegetarianism and liberates millions of animals fated to be slaughtered.

    Gratitude for the environment: recognizing the need to replenish the water of our world.

    Renounce all that cause suffering: lives a simple life focused on benefiting others.

    Thank you Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for this beautiful post!

  17. Joy on Apr 25, 2016 at 10:14 am

    Somehow I’ve always thought that one of the core practice Buddhism was to not eat meat. It is only later when I grew up and got to know more about Buddhism, particularly Vajrayana/Tibetan Buddhism that I was told eating meat was “fine”. I thought it was odd at first because Buddhism strongly advocate no killing, no harming any sentient being so how can eating meat be considered okay in the eyes of law of cause and effect?

    When Rinpoche decided to stop eating meat and started to make that change, initially we were afraid we could not overcome of desire for meat and would fail. But because the motivation was to create the cause for our own animal sanctuary to manifest and hence we decided to forgo eating dead beings.

    I’m really glad to see another Tibetan Lama – Chatral Rinpoche who like our Rinpoche gives very logical, powerful advice on vegetarianism and the basics Buddhist principle is truly practice ‘no killing’. As what Rinpoche always say, not eating meat is the very gross level of compassion in action. If we can’t even do this and let go of our attachment to eating meat, then lets not even talk about developing Bodhichitta! The rest of our practice on compassion is nothing more than another self-deception that is based on our self-cherishing mind.

  18. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Apr 25, 2016 at 8:46 am

    What a coincidence! I first heard about Chatral Rinpoche just a few weeks ago when I came across these memes below. What caught my interest was that so few Tibetan lamas are this outspoken and direct about being vegetarian – in one of the memes, Chatral Rinpoche even admonishes the lamas, saying “what a shame if even the lamas can’t give up meat!”

    His memes were posted alongside a quote from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso who said that animals are sentient beings with the potential to become Buddhas. Therefore by participating in their death because we eat meat, we rob them of this Buddha potential and it’s incredibly heavy negative karma for us.

    I thought it was an interesting contrast that lamas like Tsem Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche and Geshe Kelsang Gyatso are such outspoken advocates of vegetarianism because it’s totally opposite to the many Tibetan monks and nuns I have seen who appear to defend meat-eating. I think their defence has less to do with attachment, and more to do with their lack of exposure and education that vegetarianism can be healthy. Having said that, in this day and age, I think it’s time for a new approach to our diets as Buddhist practitioners, especially since we live in a world where there are many dietary alternatives.

    I love this post and reading about this amazingly compassionate lama. In the recent years, many high lamas have called for abstinence in the taking of meat. HH The 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinly also gave instruction to his followers not to consume meat in 2007. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has been very consistent is his advocacy of a no-meat diet for a long time as well.

    When the Buddha ordered all practitioners to ‘do not harm’ and not to kill, it is only logical that the Buddha meant, not to kill directly or indirectly or to rejoice in the slaughter of other sentient beings. Eating meat clearly transgresses the instructions not to cause the killing of other beings and rejoicing in the killing. Clearly when we salivate and take delight in partaking in the meat dish, we are by default rejoicing in the making of the dish.

    It is one thing to eat meat because we have to, as in there is nothing else to eat and we are unaware of the ills of eating meat and causing harm. These days we cannot use any of those two reasons as justifications.

  20. Carmen Koo on Apr 25, 2016 at 1:00 am

    How Jadrel Rinpoche advocates Vegetarianism reminds me of how Tsem Rinpoche does it in today’s times. Rinpoche loves animals, and is a strong advocate in educating other’s about animal’s rights and cruelty towards animals. Like how Jadrel Rinpoche adviced his students to have vegetarian diet, I too was inspired to be vegetarian by Tsem Rinpoche. I’ve seen Tsem Rinpoche save lives as well, and continue to do so, again just like Jadrel Rinpoche. There are many similarities that you can draw upon from beings with great compassion, and their deeds and activities too, are similar in nature.

    Thank you for sharing this story so that we can get the blessings, in addition to being inspired and have our knowledge increased, from reading stories of lineage lamas, Rinpoche.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    When I first time saw him in a photo, I was deeply inspired by the simplicity and kindness he appeared. He was known to Bhutanese for saving many lives of animals and many went vegetarian after meeting him. Though, I didn’t have karma to meet him, his words were so inspiring that he always talked of compassion towwrds animals because loving someome who cannot love back is the real selfless love. I cannot imagine how may lives he saved _()_. We lost someone so precious.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. We must cut out the negative karma accumulated by eating meat.

  22. Valentina Suhendra on Apr 24, 2016 at 1:29 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this inspiring story of Jadrel Sangay Dorje Rinpoche. It is amazing how this yogi who lived for over one century has inspired many people to become a vegetarian and continuously saving animals who were about to be butchered. I love the fact that he was saving a lot of animals too. It just reminded me how I became a vegetarian. I could not see the logic that something have to die so I can live. I know the law of karma that killing is a negative karma. My relatives and friends tried to reason with me that someone else killed the animals and not us. However, I did not understand why I was not at fault since these people killed the animals so I can satisfy my taste bud. So one day around October 2003, I decided to become a vegetarian. My parents were furious and friends started betting as to how long will I last with this diet. 13 years have passed, and I am still a vegetarian.

    My point is I am inspired by this Lama’s courage because saving animals and encouraging others to become vegetarians could be very challenging because he was challenging their sense of enjoyment and pleasure. I rejoice in his deeds and effort.

    Valentina

    The magnificent Jetavanaramaya Stupa in Anuradhapura, in Sri Lanka is considered as one of the most sacred pilgrimage places. Located in the ruins of Jetavana monastery in the UNESCO world heritage city . It is an ancient Buddhist reliquary monument, built by King Mahasena of Anuradhapura in (273–301). It is also significant in recorded history as one of the tallest structures in the ancient world. The structure is no longer the tallest, but it is still the largest. Anuradhapura remains an important sacred place for Buddhistsit is one of the biggest archeological sites in the world. Would love to visit one day to see for my self.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist, widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest and most influential physicists of all time. Famous for devising his theory of relativity, which revolutionized our understanding of space, time, gravity, and the universe .
    Albert Einstein did said that Buddhism is a philosophy, not a religion. Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.
    He is often cited as one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century. His work continues to help astronomers study everything from gravitational waves to Mercury’s orbit. It is universal truth….as it covers both the natural and the spiritual and Buddhism has the answers. Interesting read. Reading through this post tell Einstein truly tell his love for Buddhism.

    Revisit this old post again listening to the songs by George Michael and Elton John. It was more than 30 years ago that George Michael and Elton John’s duet of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” It’s known as one of the greatest pop duets of all time. Letting go is incredibly difficult. No matter what if we cling to worries about the future, or if we keep replaying the mistakes of the past we will never be happy. Let go and move on, if we want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present. Time doesn’t heal emotional pain, we need to learn how to let go for sure. Learning Dharma is the best choice to focus on living fully and meaningfully in the present. Do not quit or give up nor matter what happens in life.
    Thankyou Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The interesting biography of King Trisong Detsen, the second Dharma-king of Tibet, who truly established Buddhism in the Land of Snow . King Trisong Detsen, the 38th Yarlung King, had ruled over Tibet from 754 CE to 799 CE. He was the monarch responsible for the official adoption of Buddhism as the state religion of Tibet. It was due to his efforts that the great masters came from India and established Buddhism firmly in Tibet. He was also the king who invited nine royal physicians from neighbouring countries and laid the foundation of Tibetan medicine. Interesting read.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura ,is a bronze statue of Amida Buddha, which stands on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. Wow…. it has long been the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan,with a height of 11.4 meters. It is one of Japan’s most fascinating historical landmarks where thousands of tourist from all over the world visited yearly. The statue is an iconic sight and most visited by tourist in the area. Merely looking at this huge statue tells all and a blessing indeed.

    The Dharma Bums were a U.S. garage band, formed in 1987 in Portland, Oregon, United States. The band had performed everywhere, and sing varies of subjects travelling around the world. The best is even Dharma songs as well revolving around Tibetan culture and religion. One of the band members is a long-time student of Tibetan Buddhism. Listening to the powerful Crystal Diamond Vajra Dakini, is a blessing.

    Interesting spiritual journey of Venerable Longlian one of the best-known students of a famous religious leader of modern China. Venerable Longlian was a talented child, at the age of four she could read, write well and was fluent in Chinese poetry. She even could recite scriptures and Buddha’s name and had visited frequently to templesqith her grandparents. Ven. Longlian studied everything from poetry to Chinese medicine under famous teachers at that time. Received teachings from Tibetan scholars as well and took initiations of the three main Gelugpa tantric deities, Vajrabhairava, Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara from Changkya Khutukhtu, who was one of the highest authorities in the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism.

    In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, monastic vows are for life. But somehow Ci’en temple in Zhejiang province offers three-month course and part-time vows recently. Situated in the luxurious forest, Ci’en temple a small temple remains its charm with impressive landscape and Buddhist culture. The Buddhist temple decided to offer admission to civilians who wanted to experience a monk’s life, only to be overwhelmed with applicants. It’s a small temple , hence only those were interested in Buddhism were given a chance. Participants of the program will live as monks in the temple free of charge. They will learn about Buddhist culture, read its scriptures and will also perform all Buddhist activities as arranged. It’s a good training ground to live as a monk or nun to cultivate minds.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Shin for this sharing.

    Ditsa Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Gelug sect in the Huzhu County of Qinghai province. Interesting history of this Ditsa Monastery, been shared . How the reincarnated Lama’s body has shrunk into an incorruptible adamantine body. Nobody at the monastery has realised that the reincarnated Lama was a Great Bodhisattva who came to the world for all sentient beings, but as ordinary people. Its only after the Lama had passed away. Since then the monks in Ditsa Monastery became more serious in their practice and maintained pure moral discipline. Reading this post has gave me a better understanding of that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations as explained by Rinpoche. Set as a reminder to devote ourselves to our teacher with sincerity and respect and everyone we encounter.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Meditation on death awareness is one of the oldest practices in all Buddhist traditions. Buddhist meditation practice of remembering that death can strike at anytime and anywhere. We should practice diligently and with urgency in every moment, even in the time it takes to draw one breath. Over the centuries Buddhism has evolved many different techniques such as mindfulness, loving-kindness and visualisation. Death awareness can serve as a real aid to practice, the importance of using every moment wisely, while we still have the time.
    Reading this article again to refresh , it’s a profound teachings one should read and understand it what is all about. All it take us 10 minutes of our time to do the practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

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.
    5 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
