GangchenRinpoche-1

The first time that I met His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was in Nepal. It was truly an unplanned meeting. I was staying with another monk at the time who told me about this incredible lama, his guru, who was coming to town and he asked if I would like to meet his teacher. So I said yes and he said okay, we would get up and go together. And that was that so we went to sleep and the next morning, I woke up at 7am and got ready to have breakfast with my friend then go and meet this great teacher…and my friend was nowhere to be found! I searched high and low for him but he had disappeared. He had gone off to meet his teacher without me!

Well there was nothing I could do. Back then there were no handphones, no email, no WhatsApp or SMS messaging so I couldn’t reach him. I didn’t know what direction he had gone in, I didn’t even know the house address or location of his teacher! But I was thinking, “You wait, just you wait until you come back!” Anyway so later that day, I was walking in Thamel which is the main tourist area of Kathmandu and from a distance, I see this taxi coming towards me. I couldn’t really see who was inside the car but somehow I knew I had to stop the car. As the car drew closer, I saw in the front seat was someone with a big beard. I flagged down the taxi and got him to stop and went up to the front passenger seat. The window came down and the monk with the bushy beard asked me, “Who are you?” in a very bright, light voice. I replied, “My name is Tenzin Zopa and I have no idea who you are but I just knew I had to meet you!” At that time, I was not recognised as a reincarnation yet so I still went by my ordination name which was Tenzin Zopa given to me by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Taken in 1990, at Gangchen Labrang in Chabhil, Nepal. Gangchen Rinpoche spontaneously told me to give an impromptu teaching to his students, with no preparation whatsoever. Just talk on the spot. I was stumped but somehow gave a teaching. The whole time, Gangchen Rinpoche sat on the throne behind me listening and watching. When I was done, Gangchen Rinpoche said, "Good good!" and that was it. Over the years, Gangchen Rinpoche has done this many, many more times. On reflection, I think it was Gangchen Rinpoche's way of preparing me for what I would be doing in the future.

Over the years, Gangchen Rinpoche has done this many, many more times. On reflection, I think it was Gangchen Rinpoche’s way of preparing me for what I would be doing in the future.

The monk replied, “Okay! You come to such-and-such a place and we will meet there! Bye bye!” and that was it, my first meeting was over. As the taxi pulled away, I looked in the back seat and who should I see in the backseat but my friend, squashed in with some other Westerners, pretending he didn’t see me! I kind of glared at him and I thought, “Just you wait! Juuuust you wait till later!” I was so annoyed! We had made plans to meet his teacher and he just left without me and didn’t say anything, didn’t tell me where he went or where to go or left me a note or anything like that! Today looking back, the incident was very funny because he really did disappear! It really did happen just like that and I really did meet this car just like that. But at the time I was so annoyed with my friend and later when I asked him what happened, he pretended like nothing had happened! He said, “But you were asleep!” and he had this thick French accent and I told him, “No, we agreed to meet at 7am and I was up waiting for you at 7am but you were gone and you left without me!” All he could say was well, I had met his teacher so now everything was okay LOL

So anyway, that monk in the front seat with the bushy beard turned out to be none other than His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, one of the foremost healers of our time. This was back in 1987 and when I arrived at Gangchen Rinpoche’s place, Rinpoche announced that I was a tulku or a reincarnated lama. I had never met him before, didn’t know who he was and he didn’t know me too, and here was this grand lama saying this about me. In fact, Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the first people to recognise me as a tulku, even before I got my official recognition. So upon sight, he told me directly that I am such-and-such reincarnation, and told me to go down to Gaden Shartse Monastery and announce it to the abbot. I told Rinpoche very respectfully, “I can’t do that Rinpoche! I can’t go down to the monastery and tell that to the abbot! I’ll be laughed out of the place!”

Gangchen Rinpoche told me, “No no no, go down and tell the abbot and tell them Gangchen Rinpoche said so.” I really did not want to! Can you imagine me walking into the abbot’s office and announcing that? What a young upstart pipsqueak! But Rinpoche kept saying it over and over again, and in the end he pretty much ordered me to do it so I had no choice. I had to follow my teacher’s instructions even though I really didn’t want to announce this to the abbot, and I went down to the monastery and I told the abbot, “I am such-and-such reincarnation, Gangchen Rinpoche said so and said I should be enthroned.” The abbot took one real good look at me, kind of squinted to see if I was being funny then he waved me off and told me to go and study.

Later on, it turned out that Gangchen Rinpoche was right. It turned out that I was a reincarnated lama and I did get recognised and I was enthroned at Gaden Shartse Monastery and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama confirmed my recognition. I thought, “How did Gangchen Rinpoche know? Who told him? Nobody knew, I didn’t know.” That was the first of many times I saw for myself Gangchen Rinpoche’s clairvoyance and psychic powers. Gangchen Rinpoche has many special abilities and I AM SURE he can see and speak with the deities directly. He has visions all the time which sometimes he slips and tells us a little bit about, before he catches himself and stops talking.

So Gangchen Rinpoche (also known as Lama Gangchen) is well-known for his tremendous healing powers and his line of incarnations, starting with the Indian Mahasiddha Darikapa, are known to be powerful healers. Those who receive healing practices from Gangchen Rinpoche are very fortunate because having a strong, healthy body and a long life will give us the freedom to practise the holy Dharma free from distractions. I have heard of many people with very difficult-to-cure diseases who have been helped, even cured by Gangchen Rinpoche’s methods.

GangchenRinpoche-4

Back in 1994, I had the great honour to host His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche in my house in Gaden Monastery

Gangchen Rinpoche is based mainly in Italy these days, but has healing centres around the world. As mentioned, there are many miracle stories associated with Gangchen Rinpoche. For example, when Rinpoche built his healing and meditation centre in Nepal, there was no water. Upon Rinpoche’s arrival at the site, a spring naturally sprung forth and to this day, it continues to provide water for the whole healing centre. They use this water to make their own medicines from fresh mountain herbs which are prescribed in the scriptures. Rinpoche is very famous for his pills, especially for healing skin problems. And they also have free clinics to provide healthcare, and a school for underprivileged children, a guest house, and also a traditional Tibetan furniture-making and incense workshop.

These days, Lama Gangchen focuses mainly on increasing awareness of Tibetan medicine, especially the integration of Tibetan medicine with Western medical disciplines. Lama Gangchen is also a holder of the Ngalso Tantric Self-Healing Method. These self-healing practices are based on the Buddha’s teachings but Gangchen Rinpoche conveys them in such a way that they are suitable for modern people. And of course unsurprisingly the method has had great success and expedited the healing of certain diseases, for example certain types of cancers.

Before Gangchen Rinpoche started transmitting these healing exercises, Rinpoche actually consulted with Dorje Shugden via an oracle. Dorje Shugden said it would be very beneficial to promote these practices which is why Gangchen Rinpoche has done so all of these years. Gangchen Rinpoche is extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden and during trance, Dorje Shugden will show his affection for Gangchen Rinpoche. Gangchen Rinpoche’s devotion to Dorje Shugden is also the main reason why for many years he was the #1 target of the Tibetan government in exile, because he refused to abide by the ban and refused to give up his practice, and even kept going back to Tibet to spread the Dharma and give teachings there.

So Gangchen Rinpoche is also a renowned practitioner of the Kurukulle, Oser Chenma (Marici), Kalachakra, Yamantaka, Heruka and Vajrayogini tantras (among many practices) and is a master of the construction of their mandalas. And as mentioned, he is also extremely close to Dorje Shugden and very devoted to him and upon request, people with merit may receive Dorje Shugden life entrustment (sogtae or initiation) from this extremely qualified teacher.

So it was this accomplished master who not only told me I am a reincarnated lama, but also told me that I should write my biography. Again it was Gangchen Rinpoche who insisted that I do it just as he has insisted over the years that I do many things, which always turned out to be true or beneficial because Gangchen Rinpoche’s motivation is always to benefit others. It hadn’t even crossed my mind to write a biography about myself.

GangchenRinpoche-11

So when Gangchen Rinpoche instructed me to do it, I declined to Rinpoche very politely and said that I am no one special so I don’t want to write it, because biographies are only written about special, interesting or inspirational people. But Gangchen Rinpoche kept insisting and told me over and over again that I need to write it because it would benefit a lot of people. In the end, I relented because I am not the type to debate and argue with my teacher. If my teacher says so, I have to do it, no and’s, if’s or but’s and I really didn’t want to be disrespectful towards him. So I said yes, okay I would on the basis that my teacher says it will benefit others. And that is why my students have been working on my biography, it is because Gangchen Rinpoche said so.

The video below was filmed as part of this biography project. I have had a close relationship with Gangchen Rinpoche throughout the years, and my team have gone to Italy many times to interview Gangchen Rinpoche and update him on my works and our activities here. So below Gangchen Rinpoche talks a little bit about me and his impressions of me and all of that. This is coming from someone who has known me for many, many years. If I were to tell you all the stories about my times with Gangchen Rinpoche, it could go on for hours and hours because Gangchen Rinpoche is one of those teachers that I have had the great fortune to spend a lot of time with, and who has given me a lot of advice for my works.

So I would like to thank Gangchen Rinpoche for his support, even by granting an audience to my students to do these interviews. Please do watch this video of this accomplished master, not because I am anyone special but because watching videos of enlightened minds speak will plant seeds of healing and enlightenment in your mindstream. In this day and age when anger and desire and the afflictive emotions are so strong, humanity is in great need of more beings like Rinpoche. May His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche have a long, healthy life and always have the resources to continue his great works to heal the minds and bodies of sentient beings all around the world.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche

Main Points:

  1. Gangchen Rinpoche advised that Tsem Rinpoche should have his biography written because Tsem Rinpoche has been doing great works and his life story will greatly benefit many people and the Dharma. In addition, Tsem Rinpoche has a nice teaching style with jokes that will be of benefit for the Dharma and many people. These days, people suffer and they want to be happy, and therefore they read books and look for information that will be of benefit for them. They need good information that will inspire them to do good work and good deeds.
  2. Gangchen Rinpoche advised that the biography should reflect Tsem Rinpoche’s many special qualities. Tsem Rinpoche is a good lama, a tulku, with great knowledge in Buddhism and the knowledge of modern life. Compared to the lama that has been spending his life in the monastery, because Tsem Rinpoche has spent part of his life outside the monastery, his activities will grow more and spread in a positive way. It is special that Tsem Rinpoche has established himself in Malaysia because it is the first place where he went to teach.

  1. The biography text should be done in a way that it does not contain only facts, but it should be nice, easy to read, entertaining, poetic, with good explanation and deep meaning of the circumstances surrounding a certain event so the reader will benefit from it. For example, when we read the biography of Milarepa, we can dive to the time when he lived. Tsem Rinpoche’s biography should be done like that where everything should be done in a nice and beautiful way like poetry. The biography should tell the whole life of Tsem Rinpoche, the difficulties he experienced in the monastery and so forth, so the persons who are reading the biography will feel the direct benefit for their daily and personal lives and their practice of Dharma. The writers should not think that this would be the last biography because Tsem Rinpoche is still young. The biography should also contain how Tsem Rinpoche was recognised as a Tulku and how Tsem Rinpoche entered the monastery, his previous lives, and so forth.
  2. The facts of this life is more important than his previous lives. The biography should contain the information of Tsem Rinpoche’s effort and dedication for the Dharma. For example: How Tsem Rinpoche met and served Zong Rinpoche. Whenever Tsem Rinpoche had spare time, he always came to serve Zong Rinpoche although nobody was telling him to do so. This is a sign of a special being or a person with extremely good qualities and Dharma from other lives.
  3. Just like Prince Siddharta Gautama, Tsem Rinpoche’s passion and dedication toward Dharma is great, and therefore, it is important to record how Tsem Rinpoche transmitted this passion and dedication into actions/ deeds. The biography should also contain the types of advice that Tsem Rinpoche gave to his disciples, the difficult situations that the disciples experienced, and how Tsem Rinpoche helped them.
  4. Tsem Rinpoche left everything to practice Dharma and realised its special importance and value. Tsem Rinpoche left his family and secular life in the United States for his Dharma practice, and this is something that should not be forgotten in the biography. Tsem Rinpoche’s parents were not happy and against his Dharma practice, and as a result, he was disowned. The biography should document his determination to do Dharma practice. In reality, there is no better way to serve one’s parents than realising the Dharma, which is the basis of stable life.
  5. The target audience of this biography can be a mixture because Tsem Rinpoche is just showing the truth and is not hiding anything. As the Buddha has mentioned, the teachings should be in accordance with the needs, the capacity, the culture, and the mentality of the disciples. This is the reason we have Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana because we have many sentient beings with various mentalities. The story should be told as things were, and the truth should not be hidden. The biographer can tell the story carefully, but the information should be the truth.

  1. Tsem Rinpoche has strong Dharma imprints from previous lives. Some of his qualities may shine more than the others depending on the merits of the disciples, time, and place. For example, Tsem Rinpoche is very generous and giving. Tsem Rinpoche gives love, Dharma and protection from suffering. Because of his previous lives imprint, Tsem Rinpoche fulfills his vows naturally. What Tsem Rinpoche did in this life is much more important than what has been done in his previous lives.
  2. The difficulties that Tsem Rinpoche experienced were positive because they pushed Rinpoche to work harder to reach enlightenment. The fact that Tsem Rinpoche was recognised later in life is more beneficial compared to if Tsem Rinpoche was recognised earlier in life.
  3. Tsem Rinpoche’s style was unconventional and raised many questions. However, if we think about people’s complaints, then it would be endless. Even Buddha Shakyamuni and Lama Tsongkhapa also had their detractors. It is also important to adapt to the society where you live or to go against the society, but follow your path and lineage.
  4. Gangchen Rinpoche was very instrumental in making Tsem Rinpoche teach because in many of his previous lives, Tsem Rinpoche had done many retreats in the monastery, and now it is time for Tsem Rinpoche to teach.
  5. Gangchen Rinpoche has described Tsem Rinpoche’s previous lives in Tsem Rinpoche’s long life prayer composed by him. In his previous lives, Tsem Rinpoche had written many books, but they all stayed within the Tibetan and monastic community. Therefore, the actions of this life are even greater than the actions of the past lives because Tsem Rinpoche is reaching out to people beyond the monastic community.
  6. Tsem Rinpoche’s strong qualities like generosity should be included in the biography. Tsem Rinpoche has always practiced four types of generosity in a very natural way for example, Tsem Rinpoche always gives materials, love, protection, and the Dharma. A lama should fulfill his vows in a very natural way in his deeds and actions. Tsem Rinpoche has the qualities of Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana teachers/ spiritual guides.
  7. Tsem Rinpoche’s role in this life will become clearer as the time passes. This includes not only what he is doing and the directions that he is going, but it also depends on the teacher, and the merits and the conditions created by the disciples as to what deeds Tsem Rinpoche will be realising. However, Tsem Rinpoche’s deeds are dedicated toward world peace and the peace of the environment.

GangchenRinpoche-10

  1. For a Tibetan Lama to be born in Taiwan and later to become an American citizen is of clear importance because it is important for Tibetans to be born outside Tibet these days. The side effects of this teaching, for example in China there are many people who need the Dharma. When Gangchen Rinpoche predicted that Tsem Rinpoche would be big in China, he meant that Tsem Rinpoche would be benefiting many Chinese people around the world, not necessarily only the people within China.
  2. Tsem Rinpoche’s difficult life when he was young. This is a special way to benefit people because Tsem Rinpoche did not always live in a protective environment. The difficulties that Rinpoche experienced push him in his work now, and would eventually push him toward enlightenment.
  3. When Tsem Rinpoche first met Gangchen Rinpoche, he was enthusiastic and would like to meet and receive teachings from all Lamas everywhere. Gangchen Rinpoche did not recall any episodes of Tsem Rinpoche arguing with him. However, the way Tsem Rinpoche reacted may have been influenced by American culture.
  4. Tsem Rinpoche’s guru devotion is very strong. Tsem Rinpoche has a lot of devotion and respect to Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. When Tsem Rinpoche went around Nepal with Gangchen Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche showed his guru devotion by helping Gangchen Rinpoche in whatever way he could. Tsem Rinpoche’s guru devotion came out naturally, not because of customs.
  5. Tsem Rinpoche has done many retreats in this life.

 

Biography

GangchenRinpoche Lama Gangchen Rinpoche was born in western Tibet in 1941. He was recognised at an early age to be a reincarnate Lama healer and was enthroned at Gangchen Choepeling Monastery at the age of five. When he reached the age of twelve he received the “Kachen” degree which is usually conferred after twenty years of study. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, he studied medicine, astrology, meditation and philosophy in two of the major monastic universities of Tibet: Sera and Tashi Lhumpo.

He also studied in Gangchen Gompa, Tropu Gompa and Neytsong Monastery. He was a disciple of some of the most important Gelugpa Lamas like H.H. Trjichang Rinpoche. In 1963, he went into exile to India where he continued his studies for the next seven years at the Varanasi Sanskrit University in Benares. In 1970, he received the Geshe Rigram degree (similar to a Ph. D.) from Sera Monastic University situated in South India.

After his graduation, he worked as a Lama healer among the Tibetan communities in Nepal, India and Sikkim, during which time he saved the lives of many people and was named private physician to the Royal Family. In 1981, Lama Gangchen visited Europe for the first time and has since become a resident and Italian citizen. In the same year, he also established his first European center: Karuna Choetsok in Lesbos, Greece, where he planted a bodhi tree in the ‘Buddha Garden’, and where he consecrated what was to become the first in a long line of World Peace Buddha Statues, thankas and images.

Since 1982, he has travelled extensively, both healing and teaching worldwide, leading many pilgrimages to some of the most important holy places of different religious and spiritual denominations in the world. Since many years Lama Gangchen promotes a very important project: the integration between Tibetan Medicine (an incredible and unlikely still unknown treasure of humankind) with allopathic medicine.

Lama Gangchen Rinpoche is the holder of an ancient and unbroken lineage of Tantric Masters dating from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. His Ngalso Tantric Selfhealing is based on Buddha’s teaching but it’s suitable for modern people.

At present he has more than 100 Inner Peace Education centres or Self-Healing Study Groups worldwide.

    Looking through those pictures one could notice the closeness connection between two great masters . Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche knew who Rinpoche was and was one of the first people to recognise Rinpoche as a tulku. This deep connection with Rinpoche continues to this day. Well-known for his tremendous healing powers and unbroken lineage of Tantric Masters dating from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha . He has saved countless lives with his healing power, had travelled extensively around the world and gave teachings to many who crossed his path. Gangchen Rinpoche is extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden. H E Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche had motivated and advice Rinpoche to have his biography written to share so as to benefit people that’s how the book The Promise came in. Beautiful and great memories between them, and lots of stories to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche

  3. Yee Yin on Oct 23, 2018 at 4:28 am

    Wow, what an amazing story between Tsem Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche. It was not coincident that Tsem Rinpoche met Gangchen Rinpoche in Thamel even without Tsem Rinpoche realising who was in the Taxi. Both of them must have had a very close connection since before this lifetime.

    The funniest part I found in this story is when Tsem Rinpoche was instructed to go and tell the abbot he is a reincarnated lama. This was quite embarrassing but since it was an instruction from the guru, Tsem Rinpoche had to obey and do it. Tsem Rinpoche was laughed at for a while but later he was recognised as a reincarnated lama. This shows us how powerful Gangchen Rinpoche is.

    What Gangchen Rinpoche said about the biography is right. Tsem Rinpoche’s life story is very inspiring, he should write a book about his experience. He had to go through a lot of hardship in life since he was a baby. He could have become a very angry person but instead, he developed so much care and love from the experiences and vowed not to bring harm to other people. No one can say Tsem Rinpoche does not know what life is outside the monastery because Tsem Rinpoche has experienced so much pain and hardship when he was young.

  4. Samfoonheei on Mar 20, 2018 at 2:26 pm

    It’s a beautiful moments when our Guru meets H E Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche who is a real lama, with great knowledge and incredible healing abilities. H E Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the first people to recognise Rinpoche as a tulku, even Rinpoche was official confirmed .His clairvoyance is just amazing and has benefited thousands of people around the world. H E Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has tremendous healing powers and his line of incarnations are known to be powerful healers. It is truly amazing to read about such an attained high lama and watching the video. It was a wonderful advice by H E Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche that Rinpoche should have his biography written which will benefit many people .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  5. Sharon Ong on Sep 29, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    Gangchen Rinpoche’s advice that Tsem Rinpoche should have his biography written because Tsem Rinpoche has been doing great works and his life story will greatly benefit many people and the Dharma. I have read the first edition of Tsem Rinpoche’s biography and was inspired to do more after reading how much Rinpoche had to endure and still continued with his Dharma path. Biographies of high lamas are not meant as a self-promotion but as a means for lay people like me to draw inspiration from, learn and perhaps emulate their good qualities.

    Gangchen Rinpoche mentioned that the actions of this life are even greater than the actions of the past lives because Tsem Rinpoche is reaching out to people beyond the monastic community. This is so true as Tsem Rinpoche has used modern means to transmit Dharma such as social media, youtube and websites such as this one and dorjeshugden.org.

    A second edition of Tsem Rinpoche’s biography is in the making as I write this and am sure the even more will be touched, inspired and transformed after reading this edition.

    May great masters like Tsem Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche live long healthy lives to continue turning the Wheel of Dharma.

  6. Wah Ying on Sep 29, 2017 at 2:08 am

    This story H.E. Tsem Rinpoche shared on how he met with H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is amazing to read on even after heard about this for few times. From just by a sight H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche knows about who H.E. Tsem Rinpoche is, we know the attainments of him. Many stories I heard about H.E. Kyabje Gangchen from seniors who met him is his healing ability as mentioned is this post.

    From H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche’s story we know more about H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s qualities. Those who met Rinpoche personally or via internet or Youtube definitely would have many experience to share about Rinpoche and agreed on the qualities mentioned by H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. On Rinpoche’s guru devotion, Rinpoche is like the real and perfect example coming out from The 50 Stanza of Guru Devotion. His generosity, giving and left everything for Dharma is yet another living example. Thanks for Rinpocehe for the sharing.

  7. Jace Chong on Sep 29, 2017 at 1:00 am

    Thanks Rinpoche and blog team for the post on the wonderful relationships between Tsem Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche.

    From the post, there’s a feeling of Gangchen Rinpoche loves and takes care of Tsem Rinpoche like a heart son. Gangchen Rinpoche points out Tsem Rinpoche’s good qualities so sharply and clear, this shows that Gangchen Rinpoche’s enlighten qualities to see another enlighten being.

    Tsem Rinpoche carries out each and every instruction from all his Guru without fail, a very good example to show how Guru Devotion leads us to reach our goal of spiritual practice.

    I would like to thank Gangchen Rinpoche who started Tsem Rinpoche on giving Dharma talks, where Tsem Rinpoche started to turn the Wheel of Dharma that benefit tremendous amount of beings in the world.

    To have such an accomplished and erudite high Lama such as Gangchen Rinpoche acknowledge and speak so approvingly of Rinpoche is definitely a bonus. Not because Rinpoche’s qualities can’t speak for themselves but rather it would be powerful rebuttal against those seeking to defame and cause mischief. After all, we are not dealing with ordinary people who are easily fooled but a highly attained Dharma practitioner. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out who to believe.

    In addition, it is very pragmatic to rely on results, both positive and negatives as means to make any points across to people. After all, actions speak louder than words. Thus, reading about Rinpoche’s life story and all that Rinpoche has done would definitely be beneficial to many on differing levels.

    Thank you for such a wonderful sharing.

    It is believed H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is an emanation of Medicine Buddha. Many people have survived and get recovery with the help of Gangchen Rinpoche’s healing blessings. Most important is Gangchen Rinpoche is extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden and never give up his practice though he was the target of CTA.

    Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the first people to recognise our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as a tulku and said Rinpoche should be enthroned. Gangchen Rinpoche advised and encouraged Tsem Rinpoche to have his biography written to tell everyone about his own story so that the people can feel the direct benefit and apply in their life as well as practice Dharma. In the video, Gangchen Rinpoche also emphasized that as Tsem Rinpoche’s students, we should not look at what Rinpoche was but look at what Rinpoche has done in this life. We have to look at Tsem Rinpoche’s qualities, determination in dharma, guru devotion, very skillful means in giving dharma teaching that includes jokes and easy understanding to the people and always practice the 4 types of generosity i.e. giving material, love, giving protection from suffering and give the dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article especially the video. In this video, I noticed that Gangchen Rinpoche’s answers are very clear, straight forward and Gangchen Rinpoche know well Tsem Rinpoche. May Gangchen Rinpoche stays healthy and long life and continues to benefit all sentient beings by turning the dharma wheel.

    This story reflects the many personal accounts I’ve heard told to me of Rinpoche and other high lamas. As spiritual guides and teachers, I see lamas as leaders – they lead their students, guiding them to navigate through the peaks and falls of life towards their spiritual fulfilment. To know the quality of a leader, it is not necessary to have met or personally know the person. One just has to look at the person’s followers (or students in this case), where the achievements of the students reflect the greatness of their leader. Gangchen Rinpoche has Tsem Rinpoche as a student, another great leader who himself has also inspired his own students to incredible heights of achievement. As they say, “the proof is in the pudding” and looking at the pudding, it is really quite an amazing pudding.

    If Tsem Rinpoche was a Game of Thrones character, he would be Jon Snow but unlike Jon Snow, (and I found it hard to believe it at first, but now I’m quite certain) he really does know everything.

  12. Stella Cheang on Sep 28, 2017 at 11:20 pm

    I am very thankful to read this article and watch the video. Because it is truly amazing to read about an enlightened mind speaks about another enlightened mind. Gangchen Rinpoche sees the qualities of our Tsem Rinpoche that are unique but absolutely important to spread the Dharma and benefit many sentient beings. To me, I have not met anyone in my life who exhibits so many of qualities that put others above self, that put Guru Devotion as the number one priority and who tirelessly share and promote the Dharma.

    Rinpoche makes esoterical Buddha Dharma available in a language that anyone can understand, in a way that many people can apply in their daily lives and on a platform that is just a few finger clicks away. In this way, Buddha Dharma becomes the salvation for modern people like me, turn my mind around and give me a new chance in this human life to do the right thing. Which otherwise impossible in this degenerated times and age.

  13. Lew on Sep 28, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing miracle stories about Gangchen Rinpoche. As Tsem Rinpoche’s student, I have heard quite a number of stories of Gangchen Rinpoche from other senior students, however nothing beats stories from Rinpoche Himself ? When I grow up and hear mystical stories, I just brushed it aside and most of the time, I choose not to believe because I can’t confirm it. But somehow I always believe what Rinpoche said because there is absolutely no reason why Rinpoche would lie to clown like me (and break His vows).

    What stood out for me in this article is Gangchen Rinpoche’s task to Tsem Rinpoche to come out with the biography. When I first heard about this biography project, I was too skeptical, but it has proven that the biography has made tremendous impacts to many people including many of my friends. Many are amazed by the sufferings Rinpoche need to endure and yet only good things came out from it. Given so much suffering one needs to face during childhood, Rinpoche’s stories has inspired many. Many said, if Rinpoche had the suffering like us “normal” people, then why not us?

    I am sure Rinpoche has more interesting stories to share, and looking forward to hearing more soon ??

  14. wan wai meng on Sep 28, 2017 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you to Rinpoche to share about his interaction with Gangchen Rinpoche. It is a good insight into about Gangchen Lama and all the great works that Gangchen lama does as a healing lama.

    Tsem Rinpoche’s life was and all the difficulty he has experienced being documented in a biography, can only benefit people to be inspired and not give up. Especially people who want to do the dharma. Rinpoche was very always enthusiastic about the Buddha Dharma, always 200% about the buddha dharma, no matter what he has to face and this article kind of illustrated that.

  15. bk on Sep 28, 2017 at 10:44 pm

    I’ve had the fortune of meeting Gangchen Rinpoche on multiple occasions and have also listened to many of Tsem Rinpoche’s stories about his experiences with this living Mahasiddha. From Rinpoche’s tales, Gangchen Rinpoche is highly clairvoyant and I have had first hand experience of his penetrating insight into what was in my mind, and his skilful means of showing me ways out of a mental rut.

    So this story about how Gangchen Rinpoche recognised Tsem Rinpoche as an incarnate lama is just one clear indication of his clairvoyance, and this recognition has been confirmed by no less than Dorje Shugden as well as many other attained lamas. Dorje Shugden’s recognition of Tsem Rinpoche’s incarnation lineage was updated to Gangchen Rinpoche, many years after that fateful day, and Gangchen Rinpoche was very pleased to hear it. I can say this with confidence because I was physically present with some others.

    In the same way, what Gangchen Rinpoche said about Tsem Rinpoche’s qualities is very true and those who have had direct experience of Tsem Rinpoche will attest to this. I am looking forward to more editions of Rinpoche’s biography because if Gangchen Rinpoche says it is beneficial, it definitely will be.

    Just to share, this is one of my fav pics of Gangchen Rinpoche

      Dear Beng Kooi,
      Thank you for sharing your favourite picture of Gangchen Rinpoche. It’s a fascinating picture. I love it too. I’m looking forwards to have Gangchen Rinpoche visiting our Kechara Forest Retreat soon. It would honour to see these two Mahasidha meet again. Thank you for your sharing.

  16. Julia Tan on Aug 24, 2017 at 8:47 am

    By reading the story of how H.E. the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche met Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is truly like a legend yet it was real. I am amazed and fascinated to it. I am sure this is due to their pass lives karma hence this life they meet again to teach and liberate all sentient beings again as they promised. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche recognised H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as who he was, in his pass life, just like a long lost friend or brother. As we all know only very highly attained lamas can do that. Tsem Rinpoche’s reincarnation also being recognised, confirmed by Dorje Shugden and enthroned by H. H. the 14th Dalai Lama himself. This is simply showed that highly attained lamas with magical power due to their practice of holding their vows, samaya and compassion still exist in our life. They are real. These are all Lamas that practice Dorje Shugden. I do not see any wrong in them just like what CTA says. Yet after reading this, once again I strengthen my faith in Dorje Shugden and the Buddha Dharma, that it is confirmed and no doubt, Dorje Shugden is an enlightenment Protector who we can rely on for our spiritual path.

  17. Pastor Antoinette on Aug 24, 2017 at 8:31 am

    The qualities of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche are well known by those who know him. It is beautiful to hear them also from one of his teachers. Yesterday evening we had a discussion and some of our group did talk about Lama Gangchen Rinpoche and that they met him or what they know about him.

    I think that we are very fortunate to meet these holy beings and the Dharma and to see their actions and on what they focus.

  18. Pastor Chia on Aug 24, 2017 at 8:19 am

    I had fortune withness few event when Gangchen Rinpoche meeting Tsem Rinpoche at Singapore and Malaysia. Tsem Rinpoche guru devotion toward Gangchen Rinpoche like dharma father and son relationship. Gangchen Rinpoche had advice Tsem Rinpoche to learn up computer the early day and in future rinpoche able to promote dharma through media worldwise. This is the clear example how Tsem rinpoche guru devotion follow Gangchen rinpiche advice all the way. Tsem rinpoche giving dharma teaching through his blog benifiting many people until now.

    When Tsem rinpoche facing problem teaching dharma at south east Asia, Gangchen Tinooche always first lama contacted Tsem rinpoche giving him advice to help his spiritual teaching journey. Tsem Rinpiche always cherish this close relationship with Gangchen Rinpoche for his first met Gangchen rinpoche until now. This article has show us how much Tsem rinpoche respect and devotion toward Gangchen rinpoche promote Dharma and Dorje Shughen practice and continue pass down the lineage to furure generation. Thank you rinpoche to sharing this article.

  19. June Kang on Aug 24, 2017 at 8:11 am

    It is always be motivated reading the story of high lamas with the works they have done. His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is well known as a healing lama. Even His Eminence faced lots of obstacle, he still continue to help the underprivileged peoples by setting up schools and clinics. Truly rejoice of his compassion. Thanks to Gangchen Rinpoche advised our guru Tsem Rinpoche to have his biography, today Tsem Rinpoche’s biography has benefited and inspired so many peoples.

  20. Mingwen on Aug 24, 2017 at 7:12 am

    Gangchen Rinpoche is another great being who is able to accomplish things that are extraordinary =)

    Great beings are divided all over the world to help people and sentient beings who are in need. They could emanate in any form without our knowing and assist us in their wisdom minds.

    May all great beings, who are like Tsem Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche to live long and healthy to stay on Earth to benefit all sentient beinga with Buddhadharma.

  21. Justin Cheah on Aug 24, 2017 at 5:07 am

    Gangchen Rinpoche is one of the “fantastic” Lamas in Tibetan Buddhism. There are so many things to write about Gangchen Rinpoche but one of the most significant deed Gangchen Rinpoche did (for me) was recognising Tsem Rinpoche as a Tulku and repeatedly asked Tsem Rinpoche to go to Gaden Monastery to be recognised as a Tulku.

    I have never met His Eminence before but was fortunate enough to visit Gangchen Labrang many years ago. I am in awe of Gangchen Rinpoche’s scale of work particularly the free schools and free clinics built in Nepal for the underprivileged. Apart from that Gangchen Lama famous for being the Healing Lama tells you a lot about His Eminence.

  22. Pastor Albert on Aug 24, 2017 at 1:51 am

    Gangchen Rinpoche is so highly attained, when he first met Tsem Rinpoche, he already recognised Rinpoche as a Tulku, and then later Rinpoche been recognised as incarnated Tulku, Gangchen Rinpoche’s clairvoyance is so accurate. The meeting of the 2 Buddha is so amazing.

    Thanks to Gangchen Rinpoche, now we have Rinpoche’s biography and so many people has benefited by this book, the book’s layout, content and the format is just like what Gangchen prescribe, it is a very interesting read on Rinpoche’s bio.

    When one is facing great difficulties, when one does not has anyone to get advice, when one is very helpless and when they are deciding to give up, they can read on a high lama’s biography, because from the Lama’s bio, it allow one to learn what the Lama has gone thru and how much suffering they were enduring but yet, they didn’t give up or slow down, they still continue to work for the benefit of others, just like this article, by reading it, it has already opened up our mind to see things differently.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your meeting with Gangchen Rinpoche.

  23. Andrea Lai on Aug 24, 2017 at 1:42 am

    It is interesting knowing such great erudite master like Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche who shows clairvoyance that been witnessed by his students. Much to my surprised, Gangchen Rinpoche has this special psychic power to bring death to life! Other than that, more interesting stories like the springing out water from the spot that he urinated in one of his healing centres, the existing of a boar that later bow in front of him which he claimed is Marici, the goddess of dawn and the blessing Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche gave on secluded land.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this article and introduction of his teacher, H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche.

  24. nicholas on Aug 23, 2017 at 11:32 pm

    From the article seeing the two great beings meeting each other is really not an coincident and it really show how attained they are. Upon sight H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche already know who is H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and through Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche’s clairvoyant he able to see Rinpoche’s qualities and gave advices on how Rinpoche able to benefit many people. I strongly believe that Rinpoche knows what need to be done but is for us the students to develop faith and focus in our dharma learning from Rinpoche and put in practice on all the work needed to benefit other with Rinpoche.

    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche mentioned that Rinpoche previous lives had many retreats and written text and in this live is time to teach to reach out people beyond monastic community. From this we can see how Rinpoche blog https://www.tsemrinpoche.com has reach so many people and benefitted so many people from different background.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the experience with Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche.

  25. Pastor Henry Ooi on Aug 23, 2017 at 11:25 pm

    To be in the presence of great high lamas is incredibly exhilarating and one can only stare in awe of their glowing physical form. I had the great fortune to have met Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche a couple of times. I was also fortunate to have visited Gangchen labrang most of the time when I was in Kathmandu, Nepal, and each visit is warmly received by Jamyang-la, nephew of Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. Jamyang-la is a humble and good monk who manages the furniture, incense and herb factory within Gangchen labrang. During one visit to Gangchen labrang, I asked Jamyang-la to narrate the story of water coming out of the ground on Himalayan Healing Centre, the Tibetan clinic started by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche on the outskirts of Kathmandu. The clinic supports and provides Tibetan medical medicine and care to the poor and needy in that area. Jamyang-la modestly said that Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche urinated on a spot at the high ground where the healing centre was to be built. Later during construction, water was found coming out from the spot where Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche had urinated. Amazing! The water collected from the ground was for the use of the entire healing centre.

  26. pammie yap on Aug 23, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is indeed clairvoyant and highly attained as mentioned by Rinpoche. And there are two of them! It is an interesting and exciting post. To read the part where Rinpoche stopped the taxi and when Gangchen Rinpoche asked Rinpoche to be recognized as a Tulku. The main points that were mentioned at the bottom of the post was really logical and true because a lot of it was experienced by the students.

    I must say that Rinpoche’s biography ‘The Promise’ was done really well with lots of photos and details. Once you start reading, you can’t stop, you just want to continue to learn and understand more about Rinpoche’s life. It’s a must read!

  27. Jason on Aug 16, 2017 at 2:17 am

    Gangchen Rinpoche’s advice my Guru , Tsem Rinpoche to write his own biography really inspired my Guru,Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in his spiritual journey. Tsem Rinpoche biography really benefited many people and inspired many to never give up in difficult life.
    Besides that, Tsem Rinpoche always infuse some jokes or good humor in Dharma sharing to make the Dharma more practical and close to our daily life.
    Thanks Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche for this sharing.

    H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, being one of Rinpoche’s gurus is renowned as a healing lama and very popular in China. He is very highly attained and it is wonderful that Kechara has some healing practices that stem from him. He has very few expectations but encourages his students and all he comes across to practice mind transformation. I rejoice in H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche’s kindness and generosity. Thank you, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and the writing team for sharing Rinpoche’s experience with this great Lama.

  29. wan wai meng on Aug 12, 2017 at 1:24 am

    Always wonderful to see Gangchen lama in picture, even though I have never met him before. He exudes so much kindness, and some of the healing practices we have in Kechara is due to Gangchen Lama’s kindness in disseminating them to others. Truly rejoice in this lama’s kindness and generosity.

    Thank you to Rinpoche for sharing his journey with Lama Gangchen with all of us.

  30. Suzy on Aug 11, 2017 at 11:04 am

    What a wonderful and interesting story! I look forward to purchasing the biography on Amazon.

  31. Vivian Ong on Aug 10, 2017 at 11:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and writer’s team for writting this article. It is great to hear other Lama saying our Guru is great especially when it comes from a High Lama like Gangchen Rinpoche. Gangchen Rinpoche himself is also a great Lama and he heals people’s sickness. We are very fortunate to have met and become Tsem Rinpoche’s student. Tsem Rinpoche’s biography indeed touches a lot of people including myself. I cried while reading it. My other Dharma also cried when read it. My Guru, Tsem Rinpoche is ever so caring, kind, loving, compassionate, etc. You name it, Rinpoche has all the good qualities that we don’t have. His care and love is unconditional. He never expects anything in return but for our mind transformation after learning the Dharma. May Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have long life and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  32. Anne Ong on Aug 9, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Gangchen Rinpoche is also one of my favorite lama. It’s great to hear Gangchen Rinpoche speak of our dearest Guru,Tsem Rinpoche. And with his high clairvoyant capabilities,prophecied Tsem Rinpoche’s great works as a highly attained Tulku in his past lives. Very interesting article and would definitely find some time to go into more details of this article. Thank you very much Rinpoche and writers for this wonderfully written Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche.

  33. Datuk May on Aug 9, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    Due to H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s guru devotion to His Guru, Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche in this life will teach and the Dharma will flow to all ten directions.

    According to Gangchen Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche in his previous lives, had written many Dharma Text and performed great retreats, but with influence within Tibet and the monastic orders. This life, Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings will benefit many many people without restrictions to sectors of society and without boundaries.

    With more than 10 million views on Tsemrinpoche.com, Gangchen Rinpoche is definitely clairvoyant with psychic powers.

    Read what a renowned Great Master has to say about H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche.

  34. Lim Han Nee on Aug 8, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    H.E. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche ,one of Tsem Rinpoche’s gurus, is one of the foremost healers of our time. He is also a World Peace advocate and ambassador. He has installed World Peace Buddha statues everywhere.What strikes us in this article by Rinpoche is Gangchen Rinpoche’s extraordinary clairvoyance and psychic power, and his being a highly attained Master.

    When Tsem Rinpoche met him in his home in 1987, he immediately announced that Rinpoche was a Tulku. It turned out that Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the first people to recognise Tsem Rinpoche as a tulku, even before Rinpoche received his official recognition. Later it turned out Gangchen Rinpoche was right, when Tsem Rinpoche was recognised and enthroned.

    Gangchen Rinpoche is very close to Dorje Shugden and very devoted to the Protector.Despite the ban, he has continued his Dorje Shugden practice. He has been visiting Tibet and spreading the Dharma and giving teachings there.

    He has insisted that Rinpoche write his biography for the benefit of many people.Gangchen Rinpoche said that the biography should reflect Rinpoche’s many good qualities , his passion for Dharma from young, as well as his deep and exceptional Guru Devotion.

    Gangchen Rinpoche was hugely instrumental in making Tsem Rinpoche teach. In the early years of 1990, owing to his clairvoyance, he knew that in the future, Rinpoche would be teaching in far-flung regions. Gangchen Rinpoche “spontaneously” told Tsem Rinpoche to give an impromptu teaching to his students , without any preparation at all. Though Rinpoche was stumped, he somehow managed to give a teaching, while Gangchen Rinpoche listened and watched all throughout , from behind the throne! Afterwards, he said , “Good Good” to Rinpoche in an encouraging manner. This was the first of many teachings he would make Rinpoche give over the years! In reflection, Rinpoche saw that Gangchen Rinpoche was actually preparing him for the teachings he would be giving in the future!

    Thus did Gangchen Rinpoche give Tsem Rinpoche a great deal of support and encouragement and powerful invaluable advice.

    Going on a pilgrimage to Lhasa , Tibet is worth . Lhasa was flocked with numerous monasteries and temples.It is world-famous for its sites of historical interest related to Buddhism, where hundred thousands of pilgrims and tourist go there yearly. The Tibetan have a long history in this region and very rich in culture. It is known for its splendid thousands of sacred lakes, and unique landscapes, with towering mountains.
    A beautiful and holy spiritual place for one to go , visiting holy places and connecting with the powerful energies. The Jokhang Monastery, Potala Palace, Norbulingka, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Ganden Monastery are some of the monasteries one should pay a visit. My wishes came true last year, travelling with friends on a pilgrimage to Lhasa, Tibet. Reading this post helps a lot for those planning to go .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing.

    John Lautner was an American was one of the most important American architects of the twentieth century. Wow …..his career spanned fifty-five years and left an indelible mark on the built environment of Southern California. Looking at the picture at this post tells all. Very extra-ordinary house built on a very steep land surrounded by beautiful tree canopies. Did google more about this man who built this building. He had designed more than fifty significant unique structures in Southern California alone. Over the years he had gained increasing recognition since, with exhibitions, publications, a documentary, and did appeared in numerous films, commercials, and other media. His legacy remains vulnerable till today.

    Going on a pilgrimage visiting Gaden Mosnastery in Tibet, was indeed once a life experience. Well…. Going there with an oxygen tank will be tough when one experienced difficulties in breathing due to high attitude. Nor matter what happen our Lama Rinpoche made it there back in December 2008 and early January 2009 during winter. I am lucky visiting Gaden Monastery with friends back in May 2019 without any hitch with our lama blessing then. It’s a beautiful monastery and its so holy one could feel the powerful energies there.
    For Rinpoche its home coming after so long. Seeing the pictures of Rinpoche standing in front of the Golden Stupa where the holy remains of Lama Tsongkhapa’s blessed body/clothes/relics were remind me of the great moment there. If given the opportunity again , I wish to visit the monastery again in the near future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article sharing. Children learn a lot through activities that captures their attention and imaginations. They too have a strong desire to explore, discover through activities .

    It will be a great start for the kids to have dharma teaching activities at young age, because of their curiosity and desire to follows what they see and absorb the interest to learn from experiences.

    We are too busy with our daily worldly need but forgot to correct our merit for future life or our spiritual path. Some of us even too focus on the ritual and forgot about the meaning of the ritual.
    This book is so interesting and all chapter need to contemplate continuously to gain more meaning in this. Thank you very much for sharing with us.

    The paranormal is a very interesting subject matter that many Malaysians would love to watch and talk about. I myself love anything to do with the Paranormal.The team really put efforts to produce the show .
    Like many other topics, the paranormal topic serves to counter our ideology that humans are the only beings ruling the world.All the best and congratulation.

    The discovery of ancient Buddhist Monastery dated from 700 AD is amazing. Found in an archaeological excavation site at Moghalmari, India ,artifacts figure of Buddha and Buddhist inscriptions. The archeologists do believe that those structural components recovered are parts of a Buddhist monastic site . A more details study of inscriptions on clay tablets even suggested the presence of two monasteries on the basis of the structural plan. With the discovery of the site and the deciphering of the inscriptions has pointed that Buddhism had spread to India in the 7th century ago.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddhism and Hinduism are similar because of their architecture is vibrant and colourful. They both have dharma and believe in reincarnation. The symbolism and structure of a Hindu temples were dated century ago. I love to see their ancient architecture of temples wall and so forth. Its simply amazing looking at its structures , colour . To the Hindu, the colours have a very deep significance, transcending purely decorative values in their religion and culture. Great to know there are so many beautiful ancient Hindus Temples around the world. Would love to visit these places as stated in this post in the near future . Looking at the Virupaksha Temple, Ranganathaswamy Temple, Brihadeeswarar Temple to name a few tell all about the beauty of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Pilgrimage is traditionally done on foot and often takes weeks or months to complete.The pilgrimage is about much more then just the destination however, the journey itself is actually the most important part of the practice.

    Now with these knowledge of where some of the relics are located, I will be able to visit the temples holding such precious blessings.Thank you very much for sharing this good article.

    The most popular Buddhist nun cook Jeong Kwan, is a Seon Buddhist monk and chef of Korean cuisine. She lives in the Chunjinam Hermitage at the Baegyangsa temple in South Korea, where she cooks for fellow nuns and monks. She also cooks for visitors as well. Inspiring ….. she discovered her calling of spreading dharma through cooking adopting a vegetarian diet . What a way to start off. She credits her joining the temple and her achievements to her mother, that’s wonderful to remember her mother. Due to her popularity she was invited to appear on TV show and cooking all the way to New York. Inspiring read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrix Ooi for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these profound teachings and sharing Pastor Henry’s update of his daily practice with us. A good example to follow . Death is something that no one could escape for sure. Its good to meditate on death nor matter how busy we are. The whole process of death and visualizing it is highly important for us . Reading this post will have us wake up , its time and never too late for anyone to practice.

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.

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

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

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
