Winning article for “A Chance To Bring Home Medicine Buddha — For Free!!

 
My mother is ill since I was 5 years old. Now I am 15 years old.

She cannot sleep normal. This makes her very sick. All kind of strange pains and discomforts occur. She cannot concentrate or remember. When I was 8 years old she had a car accident. The injury’s of the car accident had a very bad influence on her illness.

She is often too sick to do her practise or when she is not too sick she simply forgets to do her practise, because she has very big trouble to remember things. The few moments when she is not so ill, when she wants to do something she really likes very much, she forgets to do.

When we can we attend Buddhist teachings or retreats. In the teachings and retreats my mother feels always better.

In October 2012 she tried again to take some Tibetan medicine. She has less pain in her joints since December 2012!

She still takes the medicine because the doctor told her that she has to take the medicine for a very long period.

I have a very close connection with my mother. When I was little she took care of me in despite of her sickness. Now I help her a lot. We have a very good relation. We really care for each other. This is the positive aspect of my mother’s illness. Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!

She has never been able to play a lot with me. The few energy she has, she has to save for the most important and urgent things she has to do.

I do hope one day she will be cured and that she will be able to sleep a normal sleep, so that she can do her practise, experience some joy and bliss and that we can do amusing things together.

I am sure that the Medicine Buddha statue will help her to cure.

    It is a very touching article of a son’s love for her mom. Many teenager may not be matured enough to understand and to care for their parents. I hope Giel’s mom is getting better and the family can practise Medicine Buddha without any challenges.

    This is a very simple written article. Yet, the care, the love and the patient that this 15 years old boy -Giel-Frédéric Fouberthad have for his mom is very touching. He understand the suffering that his mom going through and he willing to take care of his mom. He even come to this competition to win a Buddha Medicine for his mom. May his mom recover faster.

  7. KYC on Mar 26, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic,
    I hope your mother gets well soon. You are very kind and loving to your mother which is very meritorious. This will help her recover from her illness faster because, in the first place, you make her happy. Helping her will give her peace of mind and not have to worry about you. You are very mature for a 15 year-old boy. I’m very happy to know about you. Good luck!

  8. Li Kheng on Mar 21, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic, thank you for sharing your story of love with us. I am inspired by your view of your mother’s illness at your young age. Your words above taught me and I trust strongly will inspire others to appreciate life and to truly care for those we love.

    I strongly wish that your mommy will continue to recover with her medication. I trust that Medicine Buddha will help her heal within and without. Practice Him well with your mother to create a strong relationship with Him to have His blessings with you lifetime after lifetime.

  9. Jutika Lam on Mar 19, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    What a very touching story of yours!

    I am very amazed how you are only 15 years old but yet your thinking is very wise.

    It is good for you to push aside what a normal 15 years old would do just to take care of your lovely mom.

    I am very happy for you to know of your very strong connection with your mom and I hope and trust in you to maintain that strong connection with your mom because you are a very special boy unlike others to care greatly of your mom

    Sickness is common with everyone in this world and nobody can escape it but I am very sure that your mom will get well with Medicine Buddha as he is the Buddha of Healing.

    I hope that your mom will very quickly get well soon so that she will be able to live free of pains and illnesses.

    Enclosed is the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha.

    TAYATHA OM BEKANZE BEKANZE MAHA BEKANZE BEKANZE RANDZA SAMUGATHE SOHA

    (Do this mantra daily so that your mother will recover quickly)

    I hope that all the Merits accumulated through taking care of your mom would quickly heal your mother.

    Wonderful how when you were young, when there were times you were sick your mom took care of you and now when your mom is sick you are taking care of her.

    Always take care of your mom not because you want rewards from her but take care of her with the motivation that you are repaying your mother’s endless kindness and love.

    I am very happy you won a Medicine Buddha Statue for your mom as well as yourself!!!

    Keep up the good work Giel-Frédéric Foubert and congratulations on winning a Medicine Buddha Statue!

    Love
    Jutika

    Dear Giel-Frédéric,

    When you said “Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!” I was astonished to read such wonderful words from a 15 year old boy. You are very mature than even most adults. Its truly touching to have read your beautiful story and I too hope your mother gets better soon. She is in all our hearts and prayers. Continue to love and take care of your mother. You’re a very good son.

  11. William on Mar 13, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Such a beautiful story, full of love. There is no love greater than the love of a mother to her child I am sure that your mother is very proud of you. Knowing that you have written your story to Rinpoche and telling the world how much you love your mother would make her think that you are a big boy now and can take care of yourself.

    Than you for sharing your story. May Buddha bless your mother and you.

  12. Paris on Mar 12, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic,
    What a beautiful article you’ve shared with us here – I can really feel how much you love your mother here, and what a strong and amazing boy you are to support her for so many years through her illness. It’s incredibly selfless and patient of you to be with your mother, and to understand that she is not able to spend so much time with you but that she has to save her energy “for the most important and urgent things she has to do”. Not many children would be able to understand this. It’s very brave, independent and strong of you to be this understanding.

    May Medicine Buddha bring tremendous healing and peace to both you and your mother. Even if your mother is not able to do her practice daily, you can be a real pillar of strength for her. You can also recite the mantra and prayers and dedicate them to her; and of course, place the Medicine Buddha near her, so she can see him daily and gain much peace and strength from him always. Touch Medicine Buddha to her head also, for his blessings.

    I wish you much happiness dear Giel-Frederic

  13. Davin on Mar 12, 2013 at 5:48 pm

You are such a brave, loving and caring young boy who cares for your mom so much.I am sure your prayers and wishes will come true soon, when you receive H E Tsem Rinpoche’s blessed Medicine Buddha,your mom will be cured of her sickness and both of you will be blessed by the Buddha.

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,
    Thank you for sharing even though it is not easy for ou to do so. And i loved what your wrote the best thing that came out of the illness is we learn to care for each others. That for me is quite amazing.
    Best Wishes

  16. Lim Han Nee on Mar 11, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Yours is a beautiful story about a son’s love for his mother and her love for him. Your mum may be unwell; but even in her ‘unwell’ state, she has shown you much love. For a young boy, you show a love that is rare and beautifully touching for your mother. The care you give her has gone beyond to that of caring for her spiritually.

    What illness that stems from the mind is best healed, by healing the mind. The healing power of spiritual practice, the healing power of the Buddhas, like Medicine Buddha, addresses the mind and will help you mum tremendously, I am sure.

    May she be blessed by Medicine Buddha and heal and become well.
    May she soon have sound sleep.

  17. henry ooi on Mar 11, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Dear Giel-Frederic,

    At the tender age of 15, you must have created the merit to be in dharma and dharma has taught you so many good things of which you are practicing like your love and care for your mother.

    May your mother be well, and you too.

  18. Sharon on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric,

    Your deep love and tireless care for your mother moved me. You are such a wonderful son and if my sons love and care for me as you do for your mum, I would be the happiest mum on earth and could not wish for more. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your mum. I salute you for your amazing maturity, patience, strength and exceptional love for your mother.

  19. Julia Tan on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Hi Giel-Fédérick,
    Very happy to know that you are receiving the Blessed Medicine Buddha Statue from Rinpoche. You have a very kind heart and you love your mother very much. Great that you take care of her. I have a mother who has sleeping problem since my very young age too. My mother also has a very weak body and always need to go and see doctor. She has been on medication to help her to sleep and also to calm down her mind for many years. Through Rinpoche’s blessings, and her faith on Rinpoche, she is now much better and sleeping well every night. Being able to be reborn as mother and son needs a lot of karma connection from the pass. Pray with faith and dedicate your every prayer to her. Things will change for the better.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful sharing.

    much care,
    Julia

  20. Jay Jae on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,
    Reading this story makes me think how much love both you and your mom have for each other. And may I add that you are a very responsible and filial child who is very concerned about your mother’s welfare.

    In your story, it reminds me of the sacrifice and all the hard work my mother has done for me. Thank you for your beautiful story, a very apt reminder for us to remember the kindness of our mothers.

    I wish your mom a speedy recovery and may Rinpoche and Medicine Buddha bless your mom with good health.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,
    Thank you for sharing such an amazing story. You are doing a very good job, your mother is so blessed to have a wonderful son like you. As a 15 years old boy, you really inspired a lot of people including me. May your mom have good health and long life and I wish you all the best.
    beatrix.

  22. sweekeong on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert, thank you for writing a beautiful story of your mother who has been sick since you’re young but taking care of you nonetheless. A mother’s love is incomparable. By taking care of your mother you have developed a very different and broader perspective of life compare to those who are your age. Responsibility and taking care of others are very much part of Dharma. Your actions will inspire many others to do something about their lives. 🙂

  23. Doreen Teoh on Mar 10, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    You have such a great mind, kindness and wisdom. You have taught me that it is not the age that determines your maturity, and your mom is so fortunate to have a son like you, who knows her sacrifice and understands her illness. Your mom is a very strong woman, I salute her. I have also read your reply to everyone who posted on the blog, it is so good of you to take the time to thank everyone. I really do not know how to express, it is beyond words. Rejoice for you and your mom, to have receive the wonderful Medicine Buddha from Rinpoche. You have given your mom the greateste gift, besides you. Om mani pedme hum.

    Dearest Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    You are such a good boy! Although a young boy, you have matured into a fine young man. You are such a kind and caring person. Your mum is truly Blessed to have you. And you too are truly Blessed to meet Dharma at such a young age. Both of you went through a lot yet both of you persevered and found comfort in each other no matter how. Such positive thinking!
    I am very happy that you have won Medicine Buddha and dedicating it to your mother’s sickness. Such a wonderful way to repay the kindness of your mum!
    May the both of you always be Blessed by the 3 Jewels and healthy always!

    May your mother recovers well and may she be protected and blessed by the 3 Jewels, always. All the best to you and your family. see you around Kechara soon!

    Rinpoche’s love and care truly knows NO bounds.. Rinpoche’s compassion trancends countries and time..

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  26. Albert Ratchaga on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:33 am

    Very touching, I always believe the children’s action is the best reflection of their parents, because what they saw, they learn.

    With Giel-Frédéric Foubert action, he clearly show’s the greatness of his mother, they have been through so much and yet, these sufferings created even stronger bonding between them, their relationship of Mother and Son are so precious and rare especially for someone who are just 15 years old, so matured and so caring.

    Congratulations Giel-Frédéric Foubert for winning the Medicine Buddha statue, I’m sure this will be the best gift for your mother for what she has done and thank you for sharing with us on how great you mum is.

    Best wishes to you

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful and sincere story Giel-Frédéric Foubert.
    Compared with teenagers of your age, you are so much mature. I grew up in the same situation with my mum is always not well and I can understand how you feel. You are very inspiring because your love to your mum is not just on the worldly level to take good care of her, but you are supporting your mum on her spiritual journey and growth too.
    I wish your mum get well soon and both of you advance in your spiritual journey together.

    You are such a loving and caring young boy. You are a real practitioner. You have not forgotten your mother’s kindness and instead of going out and have fun with your friends, thinking your mother is a burden to you, you are taking good care of her. You are very positive, not dragged down by the situation you are in. You are a very good role model to young people nowadays. I wish you luck and may Buddha bless you and your lovely mother.

    What a touching story, and what a devoted son. Giel-Frédéric, the level of your compassion and maturity is way beyond many people who are much older than you. Your ability to comprehend that “Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!” shames the many of us who often complain about our lives. Your mother must be very, very proud to have a son like you…I know any mother would be!

    Dear Giel-Frederic, thank you for your heartwarming and touching story about your mother and yourself. It is rare for a young person such as yourself, through your hardship is able to hold such devotion and filial piety towards your mother. It is a most admirable trait and keep it up.

    Your Dharmic views and trust in the 3 jewels is also something precious. I am very happy and rejoice to know you will receive one of the Medicine Buddha statues that has been specially blessed by Rinpoche… Thank you for warming our hearts!

    Thank you for your beautiful story. It is simple and full of care for your mother. I am not sure if you are reading this but I send you my prayers that your mother may recover even more so. It is nice that you follow your mother for spiritual practice and retreats. It is good that you are taking care of your mum and although you cannot do much, but I tell you, you are already doing a lot more than most kids are doing for their parents. Once again, Thank you for sharing and I do hope with Medicine Buddha’s blessings, your mother will heal in time.

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    Very short and simple story about your mother and your relationship with her. There is not flowery decoration to your write-up and yet with these short paragraphs you convey to us your care towards your mother in the past ten years, and I can read from these paragraphs as well your dedication towards dharma practice.

    I feel that you are really a very mature kid, since so many years ago you have already understood the need to take good care of your mother. I can feel it too that you have very strong dedication towards dharma, an aspect that I feel so special because of both your age and your race (being a non-asian).

    You have touched Rinpoche’s heart and you have won yourself the Medicine Buddha, I trust that this statue will help your mother and many other people that you care about.

    Dear Giel,

    Such a wonderful story… you truly are a great son to your mother. Through your writing, I can feel you love and appreciate your mother very much… I can feel the closeness you have for your mother and so very sincere to taking care of her. You are a person with gratitude, a very good quality to have.

    Some people, whom are 3 or 4 times your age… do not even take such good care of their parents. Your story really touched me. So thank you very much for sharing it with everyone.

    I rejoice that you manage to win a beautiful Medicine Buddha statue for your beautiful mother. May she get great blessings and be well physically so that she can practice the Dharma.

    I would like to share a story with you here: The Buddha said, we can give all the money, care, properties etc to our parents, but whatever we have given will never be able to repay the kindness of our parents for they have done so much for us. The only way we can repay the kindness of our parents is by giving them the Dharma.

    I’m glad you gave your mother Dharma, it is the highest gift any child can give their parents.

    Be well.

I am especially glad that you look at things in a very positive way when you said that “This is the positive aspect of my mother’s illness. Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!”.

    You are a brave and lovely boy, I am sure whatever you have done for your mother especially by taking part in this contest in order to win a Menlha statue for her will definitely benefit her.

    Thank you and take care. Do share more with us about your story and practice. May your mother get well soon.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    You have such courage and you write in such a way that it was not difficult to see your love for your mother, or indeed the kind person that you are. I am very touched and happy for you that you do not see what you have to do for your mother as a difficult chore, but instead was quick to realize that she cared for you when you were young. You are still young but not in maturity and spirituality and that is something encouraging for everyone.

    May Menlha help your mother recover and may this Buddha and other Buddhas continue to bless you and your development as a caring and conscientious sentient being. I am glad to have read about you and your mother and please stay close with the Dharma.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

While most teenager your age will hang out with their buddies, you chose to be close to your mother, caring and taking care of her needs; physically and spiritually.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Your story brought tears to my eyes. Not many people see the positives when they encounter negative things in their lives. I am touched by your story because you are still so young yet you know how to show love and care towards your mom. You remind me of when I was 15 and I had to take care of my mother who was also ill and in deep depression taking many drugs as well. It must be not easy to see your mum in such a condition but you are doing it with so much positivity and a beautiful smile on your face. I am sure Medicine Buddha will bless your mother.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Your story is very touching. You are 15 years old and your care and love for your mother is truly inspiring to many of us. As you know most of the teenager will be spending their time to have fun or do some self cherishing activities. Maybe due to the illness of your mother had made you who you are today! A responsible, caring and loving person. Not only you taking good care of her physically but spiritually you are helping her as well, this is something very beautiful. I am happy for you to be able to realize everything has a positive aspect in life. Keep up the spirit!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very inspiring beautiful true story.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Inspiring post of a soldier turned Buddhist monk living in remote raw Ural mountains of Russia . With little and much hardship , they never give up feeling happy with their struggles. They managed to build a spiritual community up in the remote mountains. Led by Mikhail Sannikov, now known as Lama Dokshit, a veteran of the USSR’s Afghanistan war . He established a monastery on an isolated mountaintop named Shad Tchup Ling, meaning “place of practice and realisation. The monastery is visited by thousands yearly by tourist and locals.
    But sadly this monastery was built on private lands own by a metallurgical mining company . Since 2016, it has been desired to demolish the Buddhist Shedrub Ling temple on Mount Kachkanar. The Buddhist community have tried many times to legalize the structures. The mining and others have claimed rights to the land. The Buddhist community was asked to leave then. The latest update dated second February 2021 is that the monastery will be under the security of the mining company where the Urals Buddhists are allowed back to the mountain only certain days of the week. May this inspiring monastery up in the mountains continue to flourish and may the mining company not demolished it .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this post reminds me of my first pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai San . Went with my Kecharians brothers and sisters few years back. Great memories indeed, we are so fortunate given the opportunity to visit such holy site of Lord Manjushri and more it’s a pilgrimage.
    Mount Wutai is a sacred mountain, one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Mount Wutai, known as ‘the five terrace mountain’, is the highest in Northern China believed to be the earthly abodes of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Great ….Each peak is inhabited by a different form of Manjushri. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain . From the 1st century AD to the early 20th century many temples have been built on the steep slopes . Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, are really amazing. The beautiful scenery there is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks. What really important is that Mount Wutai have a connection and vast history with many Tibetan lamas. From Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen to China’s most benevolent rulers, Emperor Kangxi .
    Looking through those beautiful pictures tell us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Karen for this wonderful sharing.

    Ullambana is a Buddhist festival celebrated on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar. It is a festival of liberation, as to provide salvation and relief to the ghosts and spirits of the dead. The Buddhist origins of the Ullambana Festival can be traced back to a story that originally came from India. By observing the practice of Ullambana we could liberate the deceased from the three suffering realms and allow the living to enjoy a life of abundance, good fortune and longevity. During this festival, offerings such as light, foods, prayers are made to the spirits of the dead and to the hungry ghosts. On this day, Buddhists offer prayers both to their departed forefathers and to their living parents and elders.
    Great …at Kechara Forest Retreat , Bentong, two powerful and extensive pujas will be performed according to the tradition of Gaden Monastery. We are fortunate this year even though we are not able to attend at KFR , these pujas will be streamed live. The two powerful and extensive pujas is to remove obstacles and generate even more merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Sharon Ong and those who are involved making it possible.

    Sad to see those homeless people and now with the pandemic , it is even more . Thousands of homeless people were housed in temporary shelters during Malaysia’s COVID-19 lockdown . We have to face and accept them they exist every where. Its true that the homeless and the people living on the streets, and many off them much as the thought might create discomfort and uneasiness among many of us. Occasionally, we might come across one sleeping on the pavement, smelly, begging, sitting on pavements with a vacant look in their eyes, walking with a sack and on the lookout for foods. Many have returned to the streets and are now living hand-to-mouth….
    H. E Tsem Rinpoche knows how it is to be homeless as he had experienced homelessness while teenager back in US. Tsem Rinpoche then set up Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to distribute warmed foods from 15 packets to thousands . With many volunteers helping up during the distribution in downtown Kuala Lumpur . Not only serves foods , giving free hair cuts and KSK’s volunteer doctors provide free medical check ups, wound dressings. These are some of the services provided. KSK team has done a wonderful jobs. The homeless deserves a much more caring society. Thanks to KSK team and volunteers , keep it up.
    Thank you Rinpoche and and Pastor Henry for this sharing.

    The sacred and magnificent Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Lijiang, Yunnan,at 5596 meters high is a famous snow mountain in China. It a tourist place for sightseeing, climbing, hiking, as it is covered by snow all year round. Having two new dharma centre in Yunnan province built has proven the growth of Dorje Shugden’s practice around the world. The first is a Dorje Shugden stupa in the Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain area . The second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la. Looking at those pictures is a blessing , these temples at the snow- capped mountains will definitely benefits many and many more to come. I have been to Yunnan the famous snow mountains but not been to these 2 temples as mentioned in this post. It was a very nice challenging to go up the Jade Dragon Snow mountain. I did enjoyed a nice and mysterious view anyways. Loved to visit Yunnan again if given a chance.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing………talented Korean artist painter An Jung-hwan creates realistic paintings that look like portals into vivid landscapes. His painstakingly meticulous technique simply amazing as perfect as a photograph . Each nature scene is so enticing in its clarity, he spends numerous weeks and countless hours working on a single painting. His stunning landscape paintings have been exhibited throughout Korea and Asia. He did held several solo exhibitions in Korea. Looking at those paintings in this post tells all…..so realistic. It could not see the difference whether its real or just paintings. Loves all his paintings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a GREAT artist.

    Unsung Hero of a Kenyan famer Patrick Mwalua who goes all the way out to save wild animals after witnessing a thirsty buffalo sniffing at an empty water hole during the drought. Since then he decided that he use his evenings to bring water to the animals to prevent them from going into the villages in search of water. The Kenyan hero have been supplying drinking water to animals. Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua known to many as the Waterman of Tsavo. He gained admiration over his passion to save the ecosystem by supplying clean drinking water at the Tsavo West National Park when the country was reeling from a prolonged dry spell. He found a cause that is more meaningful , giving new meaning to nature conservation. Inspiring indeed what he did is truly amazing travelling miles just to bring water to wild animals. Wish there were more like people Mwalua doing a good job saving animals.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Tunnels are echoey, dark and often damp are where the perfect places for ghostly encounters. That’s why so many tunnels are said to be haunted. They’re more than a little creepy as they are mostly abandoned railway tunnel with histories as former dwellings, burial grounds and so forth.
    Interesting to know all about those most haunted rather creepy tunnels across the globe. Wow ….it never come across me that there so many of them . Reading through these post and seeing those creepy pictures tells all some still continue to echo today. The legend behind this haunting of each tunnel really will scare people away yet many tunnel still carries trains today. Many reports said that strange lights, ghostly appearances and, most often, groans of agony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Tsunmo Tsel Monastery was once a summer residence for Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo and Princess Wencheng. Tsunmo Tsel is a Gelup monastery that was founded by Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen in 1420 in central Tibet. Interesting history of this Gelup monastery , located in Tsunmo Tsel village, Tibet where Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s body was placed in a stupa. It’s a beautiful Stupa and so blessed able to see it during my trip back in 2019. It seems that during renovations when his body was removed from the stupa, a fragrant scent permeated through the entire place. Well its a sign of his pure moral discipline being a close disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. He was well-known for holding his vows . Interest read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Interesting read of this Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery with an interesting legend behind it. All about a wealthy Han family having a daughter named Qiaoyun. She was considered to be as the emanation of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy . As a young age, Qiaoyun was already inclined towards Buddhism, refusing arranged marriage as her interest is in Buddhism. Her life story tells all how she managed to save many lives in the village even before she was ordained a nun. Great explanation of the significance of fragrant scent in Buddhism and sharing of the 33 manifestations of Guan Yin . Loved those pictures of Quan Yin , beautiful indeed and seeing it is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Yes this 12-year-old Mongolian boy name Uudam is really amazing . He sang beautifully in his song ‘Mother in the dream’ in the China got talent contest. He rendered the song full of emotion and delivered it deep from his heart, looking at his expression. His singing touched every audience and the judges as well . Even though not many people understand the lyrics in Mongolian yet his singing voice simply amazing and emotion . Such a great song indeed. All I could say he is truly talented .

    Shocking reading this again as it happened in Malaysia . At the Petknode Cat Boarding center or pet’s hotel in Damansara Damai and Sungai Buloh had been allegedly abandoned and starved 200 cats and a dog . Anxious pet owners and animal lovers came to the rescue. Over 100 cats and a dog were rescued from the Damansara Damai location ,while another 100 cats at Sungai Buloh. 300 starved and 13 died- Many outraged Malaysians including celebrities , social media Facebook groups expressed their anger over it. Hopefully stern punishment should enforced on those who abused animals. Animals should be given a chance to live, love by all, they are one of us . Teaching kids early to love ,care for animals should be taught in schools.

    Great teachings from this post to practice the Dharma well . We have to practice the preliminaries well before going further and deeper. The purpose of the preliminaries practice is to purify negative karma and accumulate merit . Once the teachings become realisation, and we prepare the mind for advance practices. Reading this will help us to realise the importance of learning dharma, transforming our mind and putting into practice. We should not of the importance of human rebirth and impermanence and all about at the time of death.
    Preliminary practice is Dharma practice. I have still plenty to learn from this knowledgeable post. Reading this over and over again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teachings.

The Unknown

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

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    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

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains to enlightenment.
