The Passing of a Great Master: Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends around the world,

It is with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of such a learned master and close friend of mine, His Eminence Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. We had been friends for many years and it was truly my honour. He was not my teacher but I have deep respect for this erudite master, his learning and practice. When I was in residing in Gaden Monastery I would see him in Gaden walking, giving classes to his hundreds of students, attending ceremonies and or joining some spiritual events quite often. We would have Dorje Shugden pujas in my house or in the monastery and I would often invite Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche to attend the pujas. He would always gladly do so and he was always friendly and had a big smile. I will never forget his big smile. I was fortunate to bring over 100 Kechara members from my centre in Malaysia to have audience with him over the years and get his blessings in Gaden Monastery, South India.

I was told that Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche decided to passed away last week on Dec 21, 2016. Before he passed, he left instructions that he would not like his body to be embalmed and placed in a special reliquary which is normal for a personage of his high esteem. He didn’t want his body to be cremated with big ceremony and placed in a stupa. He also stated that is was not necessary to look for his reincarnation. He made these instructions very clear.

He said that after his passing, people may take his body, cremate it in a simple manner, and dispose of it in a normal way. His many students in Gaden Monastery obeyed and all was done a few days ago. He left all these instructions before he passed as he was in control of when his death will be. When he finally passed away and entered into clear light, he stayed in death meditation (thukdam) for nine days. So his body stayed in meditational posture, without moving, his heart area remained warm, yet he was not breathing anymore and his heart stopped for nine days. Upon leaving death meditation, his head slumped over and his students were able to remove his body for cremation. This is a sign of a tantric practitioner who has gained high realisations. Indeed Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche of Gaden Shartse Monastery was highly a realised Buddhist tantric master. He was a very devoted student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and so forth. He spoke of them with great reverence always.

His passing is a great loss to the Gaden lineage, as he was a great master and lineage holder. I offer my prayers alongside the prayers of hundreds of his students, of which many of whom are eminent high lamas, geshes and great monks of Gaden Shartse monastery today and also in Shar Gaden Monastery.

I humbly offer my prayers and I know His Eminence Kensur Konchok Rinpoche will be greatly missed by his hundreds of students. Many were able to achieve the fruition of their studies to become Geshe Lharampa because of his tens of thousands of hours of dedicated teachings to them in his lifetime. He was tireless in giving teachings daily for over 8 hours without break and sometimes more. He was extremely passionate to give knowledge to the younger generation in order to preserve the Buddha Dharma as taught by Lord Tsongkapa. Mondays were rest days in Gaden. Even on Mondays, Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche would arrange to buy many vegetables and rice and have an abundance of food cooked up, and fed his poorer students. He took care of their bodies too. He was very much loved. He was known to be extremely loving, caring and fatherly towards his many students. He was direct with his speech yet very warm in his love and care. He was quick to scold but never held his temper long. Hundreds of students and peers respected his warm, kind and caring love. His erudite mastery of the scriptures of Panchen Sonam Drakpa and many other works by the six ornaments and two crown jewels (Nagarjuna, Araydeva, Asanga, Vasubandhu, Dignaga, Dharmakirti, Gunaprabha and Shakyaprabha. Along with them are the works of these masters such as Buddhapalita, Bhavaviveka, Chandrakirti, Shantideva, Shantarakshita, Kamalashila, Vimuktisena, Haribadra and Atisha) was legendary in Gaden, Sera and Drepung among the scholars. Everyone, I mean literally everyone knew he was so learned and yet so humble. He is a fine example of what an institution of Lord Tsongkapa such as Gaden Monastery can produce. It was my greatest honor to have known him.

I will miss him deeply, with my hands folded,

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Biography of H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

H. E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

H. E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche was an Abbot-Emeritus of Gaden Shartse Monastery and is well known for his mastery of Buddhist study and teaching. ‘Kensur’ is a title bestowed on an illustrious abbot who has retired successfully from office. Kensur Rinpoche was born in 1934 in Markham, Tibet. At the age of 13, he became ordained as a monk in a monastery located in his hometown. Upon turning 17, he travelled to Gaden Shartse Monastery in Lhasa, and studied there until the events of 1959 in Tibet, when Kensur Rinpoche managed to escape into India. In 1980, Kensur Rinpoche received the esteemed Geshe Larampa degree after years of study. This title is only awarded to scholar-monks who graduate their monastic examinations with the highest honours. After this, he entered the Gyuto Tantric College in 1985 to further his studies. In 1989, he was appointed as one of the official teachers of Gaden Shartse Monastery.

In 1996, Kensur Rinpoche was appointed Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He continued to serve as abbot for the next 5 years with great success improving the education of the monastery greatly, until 2001. Having begun his education decades ago, Kensur Rinpoche was a master from the last generation of lamas who were educated according to the monastic system of old Tibet. He is revered as a great scholar-teacher of both Sutra and Tantra, holding a life-long devotion and commitment to the way of the Dharma. Even after retiring as abbot, he continued to teach with great passion and love for his students and the preservation of Buddha Dharma. He greatly advocated meditation, preparatory practices such as prostrations coupled with learning.

Kensur Rinpoche was one of the old masters who brought the teachings and practice from Tibet to India in the 1960s, and as a former abbot, he was instrumental in re-establishing the grandeur and monastic system of Gaden Shartse Monastery in its new home in South India. Kensur Rinpoche is remembered as a great scholar and teacher, creating a whole new generation of highly qualified, committed practitioners and teachers. In fact one of his students is the current incarnation of H.H. Zong Rinpoche.

Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche visited Tsem Rinpoche in Gaden.

Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche visited or came over to do pujas when I was in Gaden. Here we are in my room when I was honoured with one of his visits to my house.

I was honoured to be able to make offerings of a Manjushri statue to Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche in Gaden Monastery. I had offered one Manjushri statue to each monk in Gaden at the time along with robes to each sangha member.

Kensur Konchok Tsering Gave Manjushri Initiation

In 2010 I had the great honour to request the erudite master and scholar Kensur Konchok Tsering to bestow the sacred Manjushri initiation to the sangha of Gaden Shartse Monastery. Kensur Rinpoche agreed and there was a large turnout in the grand debate courtyard of the monastery to receive the initiation from this master. I wanted everyone to be blessed by Manjushri and seeds of Manjushri planted in their mindstream for their future enlightenment.

Before monks engage in their daily debates, they invoke Manjushri to bestow his blessings for the spiritual education daily. Therefore I feel very lucky to have been able to have done this, because it was auspicious for the monks to receive this initiation, especially from someone as qualified as Kensur Rinpoche. In the video below, I provide a light commentary in regards to this initiation that I had the honour to sponsor. Please listen to the commentary to learn more. Thank you.

Interview with H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

Some of my students had the honour to have audience with Kensur Rinpoche. During the short audience, my students asked Kensur Rinpoche some questions to which Kensur Rinpoche replied. Below is the video from the event, where Kensur Rinpoche kindly took the time to speak with my students.

Interview with High Lamas of Gaden Monastery – Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche

Below is another video with Kensur Rinpoche which is a must see. He speaks very candidly and openly with his characteristic joviality to my students whom I sent to visit Gaden Monastery. Again, some of my students had travelled to Gaden Monastery and sought an audience with this holy master. During the audience, Kensur Rinpoche took time out of his schedule to speak to the students, and explain our relationship and what he remembered of me from the monastery. I was very humbled by all that he said.

 

Prayer For Me By Kensur Rinpoche Konchok Tsering

When I was ill in 2011, some of my students had requested Kensur Rinpoche Konchok Tsering to compose a long life prayer which they would recite to generate the merits for my long life and Dharma works to grow. In Tibetan Buddhism, when one’s teacher is ill, we can request the high lamas to compose special prayers to invoke upon the blessings of the Three Jewels to increase our teacher’s life. This is what my students had done, as such prayers are sought after and recited daily. These prayers are recited daily by devoted students to increase the merits for their teachers to live longer.

Kensur Rinpoche kindly agreed. I am indeed fortunate to have had such a high and renowned master compose this for me. I am humbled and honoured. I am grateful to this lama for composing something to increase my life. I have not done much and yet Kensur Rinpoche thought that my life is worth extending. I fold my hands humbly to Kensur Rinpoche, who tirelessly taught the Dharma to hundreds of his students which many now are great Dharma masters, some of which have become excellent teachers in their own right. Kensur Rinpoche is the perfect example of kindness, knowledge, practice, generosity, meditation, patience and compassion rolled into one great master. He has achieved great results in his meditation and therefore able to stay in thukdam (death meditation) for nine days. I fold my hands to Kensur Rinpoche for granting me his blessings.

The prayer is designed to be recited daily by students, well-wishers, friends and or those karmically connected with myself. The prayers have power due to the illustrious authors’ blessings.

    We at Kechara are indebted to this great master, for so many reasons, one of it was for him to compose a long life prayer for His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.

    I feel Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche, wherever he goes in Samsara, he will carry on benefitting sentient beings. May his departure remain short, and his benefit reach the heavens.

  2. Pema Thinley on Jan 13, 2017 at 4:22 am

    It is indeed very sad to know of the passing of such high and great lama, may Rinpoche take rebirth again and again to benefit many sentient beings.
    It is very moving and enlightening to go through the post and the videos, thank you so much Rinpoche for taking out your precious time to make this great information available on internet.
    Kensur Rinpoche lived great and humble life and passed away with many auspicious signs _()_.
    May we have such great teachers in many generations to come

  3. Adeline Tan on Jan 5, 2017 at 1:03 am

    It is very sad to hear the news of the passing of an erudite master. It is indeed a great loss to the monastery and all his students to whom H E Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche took care of their needs and also fed his poorer students just like a father to them, He will be greatly missed by all of them.
    May Rinpoche’s students continue to carry on Rinpoche’s dharma work to bring benefit to more people.

  4. Pastor Antoinette on Jan 4, 2017 at 7:43 am

    Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche was such an accomplished and highly attained practitioner who worked tirelessly for others. Indeed like H.E. Tsem Rinpoche wrote this person has meaning in his life, even when aged, he will always be of benefit.

    May Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche have a swift rebirth and come back to benefit the world through his compassion and wisdom.
    Thank you

  5. Pastor Chia on Jan 4, 2017 at 7:03 am

    After reading this article,with great sadness about Kensur Konchok Rinpoche already passing. Kensur Rinpoche in Gaden Shartse had many students due to his wise knowledge of many year of study Buddhism.

    My first impression meeting with Kensur Konchok Rinpoche is very humble lama, In 1997, which i was travelled first time to Gaden Shartse monastery with H.E.Tsem Tulku rinpoche and the group of people. Day after we had arrived at Gaden day. Kensur Rinpoche came to visit Tsem rinpoche suddenly without informing Tsem Rinpoche ahead. Which is not according monastery protocol the abbot came himself to visiting other lama ladrang without informing. With respect of H.E.Tsem rinpoche hard work raising fund at south east Asia to support sangha and monastery many year. Kensur Konchok Rinpoche came personally to thank rinpoche and to discuss with Tsem rinpoche about Kensur Jampa Yeshe rinpoche long life puja. Is my good fortunate to met both high qualified lama that time and received blessing from them. H.E.Tsem Rinpoche always speak highly about Kensur Konchok Rinpoche wise knowledge of Buddhism and sincere practitioner. I pray Kensur Rinpoche incarnation can be find and come back again continue turn the wheel of dharma.

  6. Pastor Albert on Jan 4, 2017 at 3:55 am

    Same to what many people has said, it is very sad to see such high calibre lama passed away, but his passing also shown us that life is impermanent, no matter how powerful we are, how highly attained we are, we will still leave one day as long as we are in a physical form.

    In many ways, we can see the similarity between H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche, they scold but never hold anger, they take care of their students especially the poorer ones, Rinpoche will take care and make sure everything is fine. They are extremely compassionate to everyone who came into their life.

    Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be with the sanghas, even Rinpoche is not in the Monastery, Rinpoche would still request Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche to conduct initiation to the sangha members so they can get greater blessing in their spiritual practice.

    Even Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche has departed, but all his effort in spreading dharma has created huge impact in Buddhism and to spread till today, if not because of you bring Dharma over from Tibet, probably many of them would have been destroyed, thank you Rinpoche for all you have done. Im sure wherever you go, you will always benefit the beings of tour time.

  7. June Kang on Jan 4, 2017 at 2:54 am

    After reading the post, I know how much Kensur Rinpoche lived his life benefited others.A great scholar and dedicated Master and was at the same time very humble and caring. His passing away is a great loss of great teaching lama. May his students continue to spread the Dharma he taught.

    I am just surprised that Kensur Rinpoche asked his student not to look for his reincarnation. As he was a great master and lineage holder, I believe his reincarnation will be a great contribution to the Gaden lineage and continue to benefit many peoples.

  8. Jason on Jan 4, 2017 at 2:29 am

    This is a sad news and great losses in Tibetan Buddhism. Passing of Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche should inspired us to learn Dharma diligently from our Guru. We should take the any opportunities to learn and practice any teachings from Guru. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche is very devoted to his Guru. This is a good quality for to learn in order for us to gain attainment in Trantic practice.

    Thanks My Guru, H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for sharing and I hope this article will inspire more people to practice Guru Devotion without any incredulity.

    It’s sad to hear the passing of such great erudite master. After reading this article and videos, I could see Kensur Rinpoche truly show his patience and compassion when being interviewed and His tirelessly talking about Dharma.

    With folded palms I prayed Kensur Rinpoche take quick rebirth and continue spread Dharma benefits more people.

  10. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    I was one of the fortunate ones to have had audience with His Eminence Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. And blessed to be in his presence when I visited Gaden Shartse monastery in those days when the ban on Dorje Shugden was still tolerable. Sad to say, the ban has split the monasteries, the sangha, the Tibetan people. And the dharma is declining because of the ban. Dharma has been polluted by politics. May Kensur Rinpoche continue to benefit those Beings where he has planned to be. May he return soon to continue his dharma work to benefit human kind after the ban is over.

  11. Mingwen on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    What can happened while 2 great beings met?

    Of course, benefitting to all sentient beings who have the karma and merits to contact with them, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche.

    May H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche goes to a greater place and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefits all sentient beings.

    May H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche live long, healthy and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, and benefits all sentient beings.

    Thank you, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche for contributing your lives to Dharma.

    Sincerely,
    Wish both of you in well.

  12. nicholas on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    It’s really a lost for such a caliber master passed away. Kensur Rinpoche indeed a great learned lama that has contributed so much in spreading the doctrine and created so many great teachers. As H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche student I thank Kensur Rinpoche for composing the long life prayer for my guru.

    There is no doubt of Kensur Rinpoche attainment that he can control his death and to me much greater lost for Rinpoche not wanting not find his incarnation. For whatever reason I hope Kensur Rinpoche will continue to come back and continue to turn the wheel of dharma.

  13. pammie yap on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:44 pm

    How unfortunate that such an accomplished and attained master have passed on. How they benefitted so many and always tirelessly teaching. But the saddest part is when Kensur Rinpoche Konchok Tsering will not be coming back again.
    Just from reading this post, one can tell how much He shows humility, love and kindness for everyone around Him. Just like our Guru, Tsem Rinpoche, always tirelessly teaching, giving, caring, kind and loving. These attained beings show us that through our effort and practice, we too, can be just like them, to be able to give tirelessly like them. How wonderful is that!
    Just from reading the long life prayers written by Kensur Rinpoche Konchok Tsering, I felt the warmth, love and kindness. Amazing!

  14. Tan Soon Huat on Jan 2, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    I am sad to hear such a highly attained Lama has entered into clear light. I am sure H.E.Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche will be remembered by His students forever.

    In His life time, H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche has shown his utimate compassion to all sentient beings and His students.”He was tireless in giving teachings daily for over 8 hours without break and sometimes more. He was extremely passionate to give knowledge to the younger generation in order to preserve the Buddha Dharma as taught by Lord Tsongkapa. Mondays were rest days in Gaden. Even on Mondays, Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche would arrange to buy many vegetables and rice and have an abundance of food cooked up, and fed his poorer students. He took care of their bodies too. He was very much loved. He was known to be extremely loving, caring and fatherly towards his many students”. I am touched with this.

    Upon He entered into clear light, He has shown sign of great Tantric master. “He said that after his passing, people may take his body, cremate it in a simple manner, and dispose of it in a normal way. His many students in Gaden Monastery obeyed and all was done a few days ago. He left all these instructions before he passed as he was in control of when his death will be. When he finally passed away and entered into clear light, he stayed in death meditation (thukdam) for nine days. So his body stayed in meditational posture, without moving, his heart area remained warm, yet he was not breathing anymore and his heart stopped for nine days. Upon leaving death meditation, his head slumped over and his students were able to remove his body for cremation. This is a sign of a tantric practitioner who has gained high realisations.” I was amazed by this. It really boosted up our confidence to Dharma practice. I guess this is the last teaching that H.E.Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche given to us.

    I am surprised and sad that Kensur Rinpoche told His students not to look for His reincarnation and he even didn’t want his body to be cremated with big ceremony and placed in a stupa. It is strange to me but I sincerely hope H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche will be reincarnated and continue to teach Dharma to benefit all sentient beings in next life.

    I learnt from the article that we should not dissapoint our teacher and value the precious Dharma or else we might lost it forever even in next life.

  15. paul yap on Jan 2, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    i remember Tsem Rinpoche always speak highly of Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. During the early years, Tsem Rinpoche would advised us travel to Gaden Shartse, to make offerings and get blessing from attained master like Kensur Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche always said that Kensur Rinpoche is a very attained master, Tsem Rinpoche has spent lots of times with him during his days at Gaden monastery, and he was very proud and always look up to Kensur Rinpoche. The passing of Kensur Rinpoche is a great loss to the Dharma world. Great master who is learned and attained are like precious jewels, very rare and not easy to meet. Thank you for the kindness of Tsem Rinpoche, Im fortunate to have the opportunity to get blessing from this high master many years ago. I believed Kensur Rinpoche has ascent to the pure land and achieved enlightenment.

  16. Fong on Jan 2, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    A great loss to us in Samsara. But, that is the rule of Samsara, we all have to leave, controlled or otherwise. His Eminence Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche has only shown us that controlled passing is achievable.

    That should inspire us to continue the path of dharma.

    May His Eminence Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche’s teachings and work continue to benefit many more.

  17. Wei Theng on Jan 2, 2017 at 1:57 am

    Sad to hear the Passing of a Great Master: Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. From the passing, Kensur Rinpoche also showed me that how this great master knows about his death and can plan for it. In additions, during his passing, he also showed me the sign of a tantric practitioner who has gained high realisations to remind me & encourage me to do my practice well while I still can.

    Pray that Kensur Rinpoche will return and continue to spread the Dharma soon.

    Om Main Padme Hung.

  18. Julia Tan on Jan 1, 2017 at 7:42 pm

    Very sad to know that another learned and high lama, H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche has enter clear light. I am amazed to know that Rinpoche’s was in death meditation for 9 days. Rinpoche’s body stayed in meditational posture, without moving, his heart area remained warm, yet he was not breathing anymore and his heart stopped for nine days. This is a sign of a tantric practitioner who has gained high realisations. What sadden me was, Rinpoche stated that is was not necessary to look for his reincarnation. He made these instructions very clear. Someone who had gain realization like Rinpoche will usually continue to come back to teach and liberate all sentient beings. Why is Rinpoche refused to be found by his students? He must be very disappointed by his students.

  19. Li Kim on Jan 1, 2017 at 6:47 pm

    It is always sad to receive news like this. The loss of another great erudite master brings heaviness to heart. After reading this post I know how much Kensur Rinpoche lived his life benefiting others. And my prayers go to him and may his teachings continue growing the Dharma through his students.

  20. Echeah on Jan 1, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    This is sad news even as we usher in a new year. 2016 seems to be a year of the passing of many famous people as well as disasters such as plane crashes etc. While for the rest of us, how and when we die is the result of our karma, for highly attained beings who have full control of their deaths, they choose when they pass and where they will take rebirth to continue their compassionate work where there is most need.

    H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche, thank you for having blessed so many with the gift of dharma. May we humbly request that Rinpoche quickly take rebirth so that many more who have not yet encountered the dharma will soon do so, through Rinpoche’s kindness. _/\_

  21. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 1, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche will be long remembered by his hundreds of students , some of whom became Geshe Lharampa because of his tens of thousands of hours of dedicated teachings to them . A great erudite scholar and dedicated Master , he was at the same time very humble and very warm and caring.

    Even on rest days in Gaden , which were on Mondays, Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche would arrange to buy many vegetables and rice and have an abundance of food cooked up, and fed his poorer students. Yes he was very much loved because he was extremely loving, caring and fatherly towards his many students.

    He and Tsem Rinpoche were close friends. He spoke very fondy of Rinpoche in interviews about Rinpoche with Tsem Rinpoche’s students. He said that Rinpoche, having studied closely with Zong Rinpoche and other high Lamas for a long time, has developed the same qualities and amassed as much knowledge. Hence, we (Tsem Rinpoche’s students)are very fortunate to have such a great teacher as Tsem Rinpoche as our Guru. Hence it is good to make strong dharma connections with Rinpoche. He spoke of Rinpoche’s extremely determined and tireless efforts to raise funds in Malaysia for the building of Phukhang Khangtsen. He did not know people. The fact that he succeeded in raising the money speaks volumes for Rinpoche!

    According to Kensur Rinpoche,Tsem Rinpoche’s most outstanding quality is his untiring effort to help and benefit others. He was always thinking about how to help others.Tsem Rinpoche displayed this caring nature when he presented Kensur Rinpoche with vitamins which he had carefully selected for Kensur Rinpoche’s diabetes. He also presented easy-to-set up mosquito netting to Kensur Rinpoche.Tsem Rinpoche also works hard to spread the Dharma

    Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche wrote and offered a long-life prayer to Tsem Rinpoche ! How kind and caring Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche was. How fortunate that I was among the group of pilgrims who visited Gaden Monastery with Tsem Rinpoche. How fortunate that I met this great Master on that pilgrimage. I remember his kindness, warmth and gentleness.

  22. Wee on Jan 1, 2017 at 11:32 am

    The passing of HE Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche is indeed a loss for us sentient beings. It is illogical for enlightened beings like HE, being accomplished in the Tantric practices, to be physically sick. These in fact are manifestations of our karmic obscurations.

    My deepest condolence to all his students and those who know Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. It is sad to hear a loss a great lama that have contributed so much in holding Tsongkhapa lineage and spreading dharma to many.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Kensur Rinpoche background and his life story.

    It is sad to hear the passing of a great lama, a great practitioner and a great Dharma teacher. But then again, we all will pass on sooner or later. It is a guaranteed event in our life. However, thanks to these great lamas, they show us proofs that of what we can achieve during the time of death. These great masters are always very kind to find ways to encourage us to keep our practice.

    Before I met Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara, I avoid to learn about death, and always wonder what is the point of doing practice. But through constant love and patience of Rinpoche, I understand the meaning of practice and eventually started my journey of practice. If not because of Rinpoche and Rinpoche’s keep showing the evidence of the practice is real, I most likely still won’t believe they are real and won’t start practice.

    My heartfelt deepest condolence to those have known H.E. Kensur Rinpoche. Kensur Rinpoche was so compassionate,loved and remembered by many at the monastery as well as our own Kecharians who have visited,and interviewed him. The Long Life Prayer of Rinpoche composed by Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche was powerful and meaningful due to the his blessings..Thank you for sharing Rinpoche about the biography of H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am sorry to hear of Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche passing. Memories of my audience with him come to mind vividly. It was such an honour to have received blessings from Kensur Rinpoche.

    During my audience with him, I was amazed how much he remembered of Rinpoche and all the kind and compassionate work that Rinpoche has done for Gaden Shartse. And how well he knew of Rinpoche’s passion to spread the Dharma.

    Kensur Rinpoche was so appreciative of the medicines that Rinpoche sent to him.

    That visit was just a small group of us visiting and talking with people, lay and monastic who had been in Rinpoche’s space while Rinpoche was in Gaden Shartse and each and everyone remembered Rinpoche well for Rinpoche’s kindness and contribution to have made “things” better for them.

    The passing into clear light of Kensur Rinpoche is very saddening as we are seeing another great authentic Lama and Teacher having left us. May His legacy of teachings live forever in all who have had the privilege to have been his student.

    Dear Rinpoche , It is sad to learnt of the passing of H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. Thank you for sharing about the life of H.E.Kensur Rinpoche. Those whom have met H.E. Kensur Rinpoche is very blessed. The long life prayer H.E. Kensur Rinpoce created for Rinpoche is beautiful and the prayer is very meaningful. My heart felt condolence to all that have met and known H.E. Kensur Rinpoche. With respect. Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

  28. Sofi on Dec 31, 2016 at 5:22 am

    I remember the first time I had the fortune to know of H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche was when he had kindly written a long life prayer for our Guru. In his prayer written, his humbleness shines out from his words used, as well as his strong roots in Dharma. Since then I had watched his interviews by fellow Kecharians for our Guru’s biography. He had high praises for our Guru and advised us to value our samaya with our Guru. It is really sad to learn of his passing as the world lose a great teaching Lama. It is so amazingly humble of him to play down his death and instructions not to search for his incarnation. May he swiftly reincarnate with the great compassion he carry with him to continue benefitting sentient beings with Turning of the Wheel of Dharma, which is so needed in this degenerate age.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing his enlightened passing and his life history with us. I offer my condolences to Rinpoche for your loss and to those who had close association with H.E. Kensur Konchok Tsering Rinpoche. _()_

    Well good and very informative article reflexology. After reading it , I learn some knowledge from there. Reflexology may be beneficial in restoring balance and harmony in the body and releasing tension. Practitioners believe that it helps facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions, and produce a peaceful mind. Researchers have been doing a research on it , found that there’s many benefits to support it. When an application of pressure to our feet, hands, or ears , it sends a calming message to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. That’s fantastic.
    Interesting read of how the spread of reflexology was introduced to Europe can be traced to the 14th Century. And then to USA , by William H. Fitzgerald, an American doctor known as the father of reflexology. And how he developed the Zone Theory.
    Thank you Pastor Antoinette Kass for sharing this post.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. They regarded Dorje Shugen as an enlightened being, as such together with Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. It was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas. Many high Lamas has since been relying on Dorje Shugden as their dharma protector as they its a beneficial practice and has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas.
    The 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen being as a reincarnation of his own grandfather, the 35th Sakya Trizin Tashi Rinchen. Interesting stories told as how he was born and the special link with the Sakya Trizins. Dragshul Trinley Rinchen was more of a hermit lama, and incredibly having visions of both Tara and Vajrayogini.
    Recording to the Sakya throne holders the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden indeed definitively is Avalokiteshvara. Six of them are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. And even composed prayers, pujas , propagated and promoted Dorje Shugden within the sacred Sakya lineage. Chapels been built too as such they cannot be wrong in their practice and a very research evidence had also confirmed it too. Interesting read …biography of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting sharing.

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining the present-day technology that has affected our general well-being situation spiritually . Giving an example of why rain dance doesn’t work anymore. Spiritual practice give us aspects of the powers of the divine. Technology is a magic and its objects remains a puzzle that is hard to unlock in regards to human experiences. The effect of technology could enhance the human material civilization, but its impact was so strong to our spiritual practice, it caused human addiction. In the modern era, technology has become a seemingly ubiquitous part of everyone’s life such as computers and hand phones. The natural element are gone, environment been disturbed so things will not happen . Interesting read.
    Professor Stephen Hawking, did mention before that advances in science and technology could lead to destructions .

    Living our life in the public eye , we have a heavy responsibility on our shoulder that most people thought. But with determination and courageous Rinpoche did it without any burden. Rinpoche did it all these years, born and bred to be in the public eye, Rinpoche seemed to know what to do without thinking about it. A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives that’s what Rinpoche thought of. Rinpoche’s thought was to help them and to bless their spiritual practice in a way. Rinpoche cares more for the people than himself, of course Rinpoche loves to be alone. Rinpoche loves to alone living up the greenery mountains and clear lakes as mentioned before. Rinpoche could not avoid being in the public eye and getting recognized. Rinpoche never retaliated in whatever situation, such as the Dorje Shugden controversy ,Rinpoche kept all his vows in accordance with the Vinaya nor matter what happened.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your wonderful recalling memories with our Lama.

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.

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