Just because I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama does not make me a bad person

The following write-up below was submitted to us by a reader of the blog, James Yoshida, who also left it as a comment in the recently-published article “Dalai Lama: Thinking China is an enemy is naive | 达赖尊者:视中国为敌是愚昧的“. We are publishing it here because it contains some interesting information. The views expressed by the author do not necessarily reflect the views of this blog.

 


 

I live in a democracy and we are allowed to disagree with another person without persecution. We are allowed to disagree with leaders without retribution otherwise what is the point of democracy? Yet, when you disagree with the Dalai Lama, you are branded a Chinese spy or paid by China to do so. Let’s get something straight: there are more people, numbering in the billions, who do not agree with the Dalai Lama so are they all Chinese spies? Are they all bad? Obviously the Dalai Lama’s government in exile has paid social media employees to go on the internet to specifically vilify China in the hopes of getting the world to turn against China and thereby support the Tibetan cause. Unfortunately this is not working. Hence when there is any dissension and differing from the Dalai Lama’s views, these social media employees will attack someone‘s appearance, background, upbringing, views and religion. This is all paid for by the Department of Information and International Relations currently headed by Ms. Dhardon Sharling and some prominent Dalai Lama supporters in Greece, England, Germany, India, Switzerland and the US. But we will talk more about that soon. This department has an annual budget of US$700,000 to pay for their various employees around the world, especially those on social media, to attack China, China supporters and Tibetans who don’t fall in line with the Dalai Lama’s views. This has been going on for decades. They produce websites, books, pamphlets, social media accounts and they spend great amounts of money to void out any dissension. It may surprise you that the Dalai Lama’s government does this, but it is very well-known among Tibetans this is what is done. You can hear Tibetans who are brave enough to speak out clearly tell us this. Not only that; there are many disgruntled ex-Tibetan exile government employees who have witnessed this firsthand and have spoken out anonymously. Remember, Tibetans do not come from a democratic background.

Yes, China does have her faults but what country does not? I do not support many policies in China but that’s their business. Look at the racial intolerance within the present-day USA where the Black Lives Matter movement is growing for obvious reasons. The anti-Muslim sentiment in Europe is also on the rise. The exploitative and genocidal recent history of Europe’s colonialism which decimated nations, people, cultures, religions in Asia, Africa, South America, Australia and North America, all in the name of progress, is in our recent memory. So who is to judge who? Nations which have a colonial past or people who descend from colonisers have no right to judge China or any other nation. Straighten out your own country first before judging another country. China is as good and as bad as any other nation on this planet. Their economic growth rivalling the US of course invites jealousy. Any neighbour that suddenly strikes it rich will immediately be the subject of gossip in the once-friendly neighbourhood. Human nature.

When people disagree with the Dalai Lama within the Tibetan communities, they are branded China sympathisers and are segregated, mocked and abused. Who was this started by? Of course the Tibetan leadership. But guess what? Not all Tibetans are ignorant farmers who will keep quiet and take the repression, or allow themselves to be abused and branded traitors, which they are not, just because they don’t agree with the Tibetan leadership’s policies. Thousands of Tibetans around the world who live in democratic and free societies can see the vast difference between the repressive, regime-like Dalai Lama’s government in exile (Dharamsala) and what a real democracy is in their own adopted countries. The non-Tibetan Dalai Lama supporters around the world also live in democratic countries and should open their eyes.

The Tibet prior to 1959 was a repressive theocratic monarchy where one person’s word was law. That person was the 5th Dalai Lama up till now with the present 14th Dalai Lama. Currently this form of government is active and alive in exile. Whatever the 14th Dalai Lama’s wishes or orders are, most will carry it out without question. They may question within themselves but will not dare to do so openly. This is how the Tibetan populace have been ‘trained’ in relations to their government for 400 years since time of the 5th Dalai Lama.

Therefore, personally I respect and like the Dalai Lama. But I do not agree with many of his views, especially on the segregation and persecution of his own people in regards to the Dorje Shugden issue. Whether Dorje Shugden is a demon, angel, Buddha, god, spirit or imagination DOES NOT MATTER. No leader in the 21st century, whether spiritual and secular, should condemn another person’s religion or choice of worship. The Dalai Lama as the Tibetan leader has said if you practise Dorje Shugden, you may not meet him, join his talks or be part of his gatherings. That is emotional blackmail. How is that possible? He is not a private person but a public figure and leader. How can a leader speak in this manner and segregate a portion of his people, and alienate them due to their religion? The Tibetan leadership likes to say Dorje Shugden followers are China spies, but Dorje Shugden practice has been around for 400 years and has had millions of followers in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and Mongolia. Were they all China spies? The Dalai Lama’s personal teachers who educated him for over 30 years practised Dorje Shugden. Were his teachers China spies? It does get ridiculous when you think about it.

On the Dalai Lama’s exile government charter and website (tibet.net), you can clearly see their official website’s condemnation (given as ‘advice’) of this spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden and its hundreds of thousands of followers. It is official. This is the exile government that wishes to gain Tibet back and govern once again. If their official exile government website is a taste of how they will rule, then there will be civil unrest. Why did the Tibetan leadership, aristocrats, ministers and the Dalai Lama lose their country in the first place? Obviously because they did not know how to protect it. They did not have a good government at all. When China marched into Tibet in 1959 to ‘peacefully’ liberate Tibet, why did all the nations in the world, including its giant neighbour India, remain quiet and let it happen? Because the government of Tibet was arrogant and thought they were the centre of the world and nothing could happen to them. For centuries, they had totally avoided contact with the outside world and therefore had no friends, allies or a seat in the United Nations. This was very bad governance on their part. Their own fault. Military aggression from one country to another is rampant in human history. Look at all the countries England forcefully and brutally colonised. That is unfortunately the brutal truth. So if your government is not working well or doing their job, there are consequences. Tibet’s bad theocratic monarchy definitely failed its own people. For 60 years, they have been in ‘exile’ and still cannot gain their country back. They expect the whole world to feel guilty, pay the price for gaining Tibet back and stand up for Tibet. Too bad. Every nation has their own problems to solve. Economy comes first. Tibetans are on the last of any nation’s agenda as the de-popularisation of the Dalai Lama shows. No nation will send troops to fight China for the Dalai Lama and his government. It has been 60 years and no one has stepped up yet. Every country will become friends with China now. Good or bad is not the issue, but that is the truth. The Dalai Lama and his government must stop antagonising China and make friends with them, to preserve the culture and language of Tibet before the death of the current Dalai Lama. Even after the passing of the current Dalai Lama, if Tibetans in and outside of Tibet decide to use violence and weapons to fight China, it will be futile. They will be crushed. The Chinese are not afraid of the military might from USA, Europe and India, so why would they fear an internal uprising of six million Tibetans? After the Dalai Lama, there will be no one who can unite the Tibetans into one voice to negotiate with China.

Many people in the world find voodoo and witchcraft to be ‘evil’. Whether it is or not, no democratic government will condemn in speech, in writing or on official websites any restrictions against these faiths. If any leaders now should speak against these religions, there will be protests and unrest because democratic principles are not being practised. This is what is happening with the Dorje Shugden issue. So that being the case in democracies, why is the Dalai Lama and his exiled government condemning Dorje Shugden in the form of so-called ‘advice’? Why do they officially condemn Dorje Shugden on their website? The Dalai Lama likes to say he is not banning Dorje Shugden but is ‘advising’ against it. How about if all spiritual leaders start ‘advising’ people against a religion other than their own and ask them to convert? It is just advice. Would that be proper? Of course not. Wars will arise because of this. How about if Christian leaders advise their nations to segregate and ban all voodoo practitioners within their country? Would democratic people stand for that? Of course not. But that is exactly what the Dalai Lama is doing with the Dorje Shugden issue among his own people.

Again, the Dalai Lama has done many good things but not everything he has done is perfect, for whatever good reasons, just like all leaders. We do not need to fanatically support all his policies. Some people have not achieved much in their personal lives, so to identify their allegiance to the Dalai Lama somehow makes them look better to others and falsely less empty in their lives, and so therefore they fanatically support the Dalai Lama. There are many types of people. Some people’s bread and butter depends on the Dalai Lama and therefore they fanatically support everything he says. I do not dislike the Dalai Lama, but I am certainly not a bad person if I don’t agree with some of his thoughts, views and policies. I am not a Chinese spy either. If I have a view or spiritual practice different from the Dalai Lama’s and just because of this I cannot join in his public speeches, there is something inherently wrong with that. Just because I don’t agree with all his views, I should not be persecuted by his exiled government’s paid social media employees in Europe, India and the US. I do not agree with everything the Dalai Lama does but that does not make me a bad or an irrational person. I do not agree with the negative talk, ban and stigma the Dalai Lama has created against his own people (if their views differ from his) and against Tibetan Buddhists around the world, but that does not mean I am paid by China to disagree. I disagree only because my views are different and hence, for that reason, I disagree. I am a good person who has much to contribute to society and I have every right to practise what form of spirituality I choose without ‘advice’ (condemnation) from the Dalai Lama or any leaders. I am not a bad person just because my opinion differs from the Dalai Lama’s. I do not need to be persecuted by the employees of the Department of Information and International Relations. I grew up in a country that allows freedom and I will always speak when anyone or any leader, no matter how ‘holy’ he is deemed to be, says or does something and I do not agree with his policies. But that does not mean I am paid to do so.

    Thank you for this brave man for stating what is being kept under the rugs for so many years. No one dares to talk about how the Tibetan Government and how they created so much problem. They are straight out using the Tibetans to fulfill their own needs and they did not care about the welfare of the Tibetans at all.

    CTA has labeled themselves as a democratic body but nothing about them is democratic. They do not practice religious freedom by putting a ban on Dorje Shugden practice. They dedicated a whole section of their official website, tibet.net to persecute Dorje Shugden worship and they even posted up a hit list for famous Dorje Shugden practitioners to be targetted by the public. That is not how a democratic country works at all. They last out at those who oppose the Dalai Lama even on the slightest issue. No one can disagree with the Dalai Lama or be labeled as Chinese Spy. It does not matter if you are really working with the Chinese or not, once you get the name you will be ostracised from the Tibetan community. So, how is this a democratic country again?

    They keep using the name of democracy to generate funds for themselves from democratic western countries. that is the only reason why they are calling themselves democratic.

    Indeed, not agreeing with the Dalai Lama doesn’t make someone a bad person. I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama because I think the way he and CTA imposed the ban is very bad. That does not make me a bad person.

    USD700,000 budget a year is allocated to attack China? CTA must be crazy. If they really want to have a deal with China, they should use this money for PR purposes, to make sure they are in the good book of the Chinese government. Their dialogue with the Chinese government is not going to happen if CTA is still so hostile to the Chinese government.

    If CTA continues to be so arrogant, one day India will ask them to leave, and they cannot go back to China because China will not want troublemakers in their country. It’s time for CTA to change their plan and protect the Tibetans.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    There are many times, after contemplating and reading information and experiencing things in relation to an issue, we feel our conclusion is absolutely right and spot on. Nothing could derail our logic, and we are passionate about defending such a point of view.

    Yet we must always remember people who have a different point of view thinks just as how we think too. So it is always good to agree to disagree.

    Dorje Shugden is emanation of Buddha Manjushri but as claimed by the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) is an evil. With more and more people speaking up against the behaviour and aware of the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) false claims. As they realised there is no religious freedom or true democracy within their communities. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. Responsibility and respect of others and their religious beliefs are also part of freedom.
    James Yoshida, and many more people, who does not agree with the Dalai Lama , it does not mean they are bad and they are all Chinese spies as claimed by some individual. James Yoshida wrote an interesting comment on blog speaking from his heart about facts I do agree with James Yoshida view. Human rights and individual liberties, including religious freedom, should be allow for each individual regardless of race and faith.
    The Tibetan leadership (CTA )were given many opportunities yet after all these years they still can’t make it on its own. Instead, they have spent millions on campaigns, websites, and so forth against Dorje Shugden. One example is the tibet.net’s page, how those article going against other religious faith. Everyone should be given freedom to choose what we practice and what we pray to.
    As time past by, more people are aware of the Dorje Shugden controversy and are speaking up on the unfairness , discrimination and sufferings caused by the CTA.
    May the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners end soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    In the era of human civilization, basic human rights the promote and protect individual freedom and choice has become an expected and taken for granted norm. Hence, for a strategy as primitive as segregation and suppression to be related to a figure as revered for being inclusive, harmony and peace is a shock and wake up call. The injustice Dorje Shugden practitioners endure is a call for us to stop, see the breach on humanity and respond in a way to uphold the rights gifted to us by past freedom fighters. Thank you for this honest letter. May more stand out to share their thoughts and raise their voice to create change.

  8. Jason on Jun 9, 2018 at 1:28 am

    Nowadays, people are more educated and they know to analyze what is wrong or good.
    In democracy country, people must have rights to voice our own opinions and shouldn’t follow blindly what a country leader or spiritual leader said.
    In Dorje Shugden case, Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) keep accusing Dorje Shugden practitioners are China spy. In fact many Dorje Shugden practitioners are Tibetan. Why CTA keep doing all these baseless claims? In fact, this will create schisms within Tibetan community.

    Practicing Dorje Shugden must be allowed if TIBET really practice religion freedom. Furthermore, Dorje Shugden is emanation of Buddha Manjushri and not a demons which claimed by CTA.

    CTA should not sacrifice Dorje Shugden practitioner in order to achieve CTA politics agenda.

    I plea to H.H Dalai Lama to have a discussion with CTA and Dorje Shugden practitioners to solve Dorje Shugden Ban issue and unite all Tibetan to live in peace and harmony.

    Thanks Rinpoche shared this articles to create awareness on the current situation in Tibet.

    Dear Rinpoche and team,

    Thank you for placing Jame’s comments into an article.

    He makes a lot of sense in his comments and I could not agree more with his views.

    We are rational, logical people. We have our own mind and we can think and reason with others and within ourselves. If we blindly follow a policy or comment, then we must be machines.. no brains of our own. Even AI now can rationalise..

    I sincerely pray and hope the segregation against Dorje Shugden practitioners can be stopped soon.

  10. Jace Chong on Jun 3, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche, James and the blog team for this insightful article.

    I totally agree with what James says, that we are the world citizen who has the right to choose what we believe.

    I started reading Dalai Lama’s books on Dharma topics many years ago and I do like the teachings he gives. However, I found there are many contrasts with the teaching when you look at how Tibetan government in exile rules their “country”, and I wonder how could it be as their leader is such a kind and great person. There are many things that don’t make sense such as the ban on Dorje Shugden, and the reasons why they spend so much money to attack others on social media just because of what they believe.

    And what James says here ring some bells – that’s the reason they lose their country and there’s no sign to gain it back after 60 years. What a shame to Tibetan government in exile.

    The world we are living now is not the same with the world 60 years back, how much can Tibetan government in exile control and attack to serve their purpose? I hope they can wake up one day to look at what is the definition of Democracy. OMG…

  11. Dalai Lama Supporter on Jun 3, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    The people who support Dalai Lama, that’s fine for you. But when you start attacking others on social media when they disagree with the Dalai Lama’s view, then you are very extreme. Dalai Lama speaks the message of peace and tolerance and in his name when you are vulgar and attack others, you are wrong. Remember, the Dalai Lama is NOT a god and we all don’t have to agree with him. He has made tons of mistakes and he will make more mistakes. To follow him just because he is nice that is blind. I think the Dalai Lama is a big boy now and he don’t need his ‘keepers’ to protect him and be nasty in his name.

  12. Cordelia Schulz on Jun 2, 2018 at 2:54 am

    Dear James,

    I find your comment to be very insightful and accurate. From a long time, ago, I have liked the Dalai Lama. It is safe to say that most people who have heard the Dalai Lama speak and heard stories about his struggle or seen him in person or on TV, would be inclined to like him. It is the sheer power of his charisma. Also, I think everyone subliminally feels that this is a very harsh, competitive and dog-eat-dog world and so we are all naturally drawn to this perceived quality of innocence, guilelessness and sincerity that he exudes.

    But it was only in recent years when I learned about his religious ban and the ways of his government that I began to ask myself what I actually like about the Dalai Lama and how much I truly know about him and his government in exile. And the honest answer was very little and again, it is safe to say that it is the same for most people. And yet, the Dalai Lama is an extremely shrewd politician and although he ‘retired’ in 2011, he remains a very prominent and influential statesman. For example, apart from the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans, I do not think there are any refugee communities in the world who has been allowed to form a government within another government like the Tibetan exile government has been able to do in India.

    I don’t think there are many politicians in the world that can match up to China’s rise and I see President Trump fumbling. And yet, the Dalai Lama has been able to garner support for his struggle worldwide for 60 years now. Why is this important to note? Because I don’t think anyone in the free world today would support an authoritarian regime that kept its people as slaves for hundreds of years and treated them like chattels or animals. The simple and irrefutable fact is this – the Tibetan government under the Dalai Lama was a brutal feudal lordship and it used religion and its privileges to oppress an entire nation of people and kept them in chains and downtrodden. And look at how we cheer them and support them. This is mind boggling.

    Everywhere I look on the social media, there is one cause or another that calls for action to be taken against those who are perceived to be cruel to animals and then you have activists working against those perceived to harm the environment. The same people support the Dalai Lama who was at the top of a ruling class that treated people worse than animals. And so, once I learned about how Tibet was before 1959 and how the Dalai Lama ran his country, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that this culture of oppression would continue in exile.

    I am not a Shugden believer but I am a firm believer that individual rights must be defended. The internet today proliferates with articles about Shugden – both pro and against and frankly, it is not easy to know which version is accurate. But it should be far simpler than that. It shouldn’t be anyone’s business what someone believes in. I live in a Catholic country but I am Protestant. And I certainly would not like it if I am singled out by a Catholic government and marginalized and treated differently and denied my usual rights just because I belong to a different faith. I doubt if there is any sane person on earth who would say that it is justified for me to be treated differently just because I am Protestant. Neither should anyone be regarded as less or inferior because he believes in Shugden.

    And yet that is what the Dalai Lama’s government has successfully got all their supporters to do. That if you like the Dalai Lama, that if you sympathize with the Tibetan struggle, you must by definition hate anyone who is a Shugden believer, and you must hate China. This is a terribly unhealthy development and the Dalai Lama could have cleared this up very early on but he didn’t. Instead in many ways, the Dalai Lama incited hatred against Shugden people. I am very confident that many who oppose Shugden do not even know what the issue is all about and only acts on what they have been told.

    Frankly, I am a bit disappointed to read the Dalai Lama’s comment in Phayul. Why say one thing and continue to carry hate messages against Shugden people on dalailama.com? It doesn’t add up.

    Very interesting and informative article. In most cultures, women is consider as lower in status compared with men. Ancient times in India, man took the lead while women is seconded. But times has changed for the better where women are not degraded in society. They receive equal recognition, appreciation, and stature, yet in countries and places around the world, women are still viewed as inferior and treated accordingly. But in Buddhism women have been increasing in number and has proven that many of them have gained full enlightenment in a female body. In Buddhism is concerned there’s no discrimination toward women ,both men and women are equal. There‘s many female Mahasiddhas and Yoginis as in this blog. May it inspired many more to come. Interesting article and its great sharing knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,

    Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, one may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. Sleep paralysis is a temporary inability to move or speak. It’s not harmful and should pass quickly, but at times can be frightening. It can affect anyone but is most common in young adults and they might have hallucination. The scary facts about sleep paralysis is those who suffer from it have said it felt like someone was choking them on their chest so they could not breathe.
    As for me I have not experience as such before as least i know now what i can to do.
    Thank you Vinnie Tan for sharing. Interesting read of these stories related to sleep paralysis.

    nteresting as this texts been composed after being inspired to do so . That’s interesting as this nature are traditionally considered exceptionally potent in their blessings if the claim of divine inspiration is authentic. According to the account in the introduction, the author composed this text after being divinely inspired to do so. It’s a very rare kind and its acceptance been recognised and received praise by very high lamas of our tradition. Reading this article tell us all of how powerful Dorje Shugden when we invoke in our prayers.
    Interesting read of the short biography of Ven. Geshe Kunchok Gyaltsen, the author of Mass of Vajra Fire.

    That’s wonderful Rinpoche has composed prayers in English so as everyone could recite and practice. For beginners is such a meaningful insights and perspectives without commitments and initiation. Moreover each prayers is for a specific blessing that helps practitioners to gain attainments and overcome obstacles. Easy and simple for everyone to start off.
    We are fortunate that everything Rinpoche did brought tremendous benefit to all sentient beings. Whatever prayers Rinpoche has composed are especially potent with blessings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this sharing.

    A great article , revisit this again of Tibetan Lamas and their dogs. As now I have a pet doggie with me, I came to understand more of them . Dogs are the most amazing creatures, they give us unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive. Buddhists believe dogs also have the potential to become enlightened and can teach us about responsibility, love, and other Buddhist principles. The Q & A by Sandra Klein’s interview with the Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche gave us a better understanding and very informative of Tibetan dogs under Lamas care. ccording to the Buddha Dharma, all sentient beings have Buddha nature — from ants to humans. Though we often look at dogs as wonderful companions an teach us to embrace Buddhist principles. They, themselves, embody many of these principles.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    Living with my wife, whose world is meticulously painted with the hues of OCD, is a journey that intertwines the essence of love with the complexities of the human mind. Her relentless pursuit of cleanliness and order, transforming even the most negligible corner into a testament of organization, often dances on the fine line between admiration and frustration. The sight of her steering clear from trash bins as if they were labyrinths of chaos, serves as a poignant reminder of the battles she fights within. Yet, it’s through these very battles that I’ve learned the profound language of patience and the unspoken strength of support. Therapy, in its gentle embrace, has been a beacon of light for her, guiding her through the stormy seas of OCD. It has not only offered her solace but has also unveiled the strength of her spirit, teaching us both the beauty of resilience. As she journeys through the pathways of healing, I stand by her, a testament to the power of love and the enduring promise of hope. Together, we navigate the complexities of her world, discovering that within the challenges lie opportunities for growth, understanding, and an unbreakable bond. https://www.mindfullyaliveonline.com/obsessive-compulsive-disorder-ocd/

    Venerable Ajahn Chah was a Thai Buddhist teacher of the Buddhadhamma and a founder of two major monasteries in the Thai Forest Tradition. Well respected and loved as a man of great wisdom, he was also instrumental in establishing Theravada Buddhism in the West. Interesting life story, how he chose to leave the settled monastic life and became a wandering ascetic. Walking across Thailand, lived in forests, caves and cremation grounds while learning from the meditation monks of the Forest of various monasteries. He wandered through the countryside in quest of quiet and secluded places for developing meditation. He even lived in tiger and cobra infested jungles, using reflections on death to penetrate to the true meaning of life. After years of wandering, Venerable Ajahn Chah established a monastery where he taught simple, practice-based form of meditation, and attracted a numerous of students including western foreigners. He was one of the greatest Dhamma teachers of the modern era. His wise teachings have continued to guide thousands of people along the path of Dharma. Venerable Ajahn Chah’s teachings of the Thai Forest Tradition gradually spread across all over the world. Several of Ajahn Chah’s Western students have since established monasteries throughout the world. Just in Thailand itself, there are more than 300 branch monasteries in Ajahn Chah’s tradition. Ven erable Ajahn Chah used his ill health as a teaching point, emphasizing that it was a living example of the impermanence of all things and reminded people to endeavour to find a true refuge within themselves. The legacy of Venerable Ajahn Chah’s teachings and legacy continues into the modern age.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    Wonderful blog written on the practice of Kalarupa for us to understand better. As an emanation of Manjushri, Kalarupa’s practice helps us to destroy ignorance and to develop wisdom overcoming our anger and suffering . Awesome Kalarupa manifested in multiple forms to help sentient beings who personifies enlightenment by the conquest of anger. Kalarupa also regard as one of the three main Dharma protectors of the Gelugpa is extremely fierce and ugly, and tames all kinds of spiritual ugliness. The fierceness of his iconography teaches us to remind ourselves that all the causes and effects of anger arising from ignorance are dreadful and distorted.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antionette for this detailed sharing,

    Nepal is a very spiritual country, having a huge Dorje Shugden mural in Kathmandu, is indeed a big achievement for Kechara. Located on Charkhal Road in Dilli Bazaar, the mural can be found midway between our two Dorje Shugden chapels which are in Putalisadak and Chabahil. It is also very close to one of Kathmandu’s largest shopping malls. Many locals , tourist will be able to connect them to a powerful deity that is so closely associated with their culture. Well the mural not only beautiful but also full of symbolism and everyone merely by seeing it is blessed. Thanks to those talented artists and generous sponsors making it a success.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. A reminder for us all to go of attachment and meditating on impermanence and emptiness. We are to relinquish the domination of our ego and its habits to transform ourselves. A great reminder not to waste our previous life.
    Quoted Ceasing to do evil, Cultivating the good, Purifying the heart .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a meaningful teachings with folded hands.

    We are members of the Buddhist Temple in Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong, Kuala Lumpur and we have been issued membership by the president (DATUK YIP KUM FOOK), we are very sad because we are the foundation of this Temple

    Now we can know who is always messing with people, and he always cheats money and women, he even uses Buddhism to find money.

    Also, need to be careful with his brother-in-law (Simon Low Kok Meng) because he is a spy (CID) for DATUK YIP KUM FOOK and we will write some letters to AGONG SULTAN IBRAHIM IBN ALMARHUM SULTAN ISKANDAR as soon as possible.

    The matriarchal cultures of the grandmothers have specific symbolism of animism shamanism, such as the horse, especially the blue horse, and the deer. These are two main symbols of a shaman woman and you can find them in many cultural folk lore, especially the Russian, Slavic, Siberian, Nordic, Finland, and Norway. It’s nice to see the Matriarchal Shaman Animism diety represented in Chinese.

    An inspiring act of a selfless Lama feeding strays whether its night or day. Truly an example for us all to feed those lonely strays . Yes I do agree compassion starts with feeding strays. Reading this blog again to refresh myself to do more. Strays animals generally lead a life of poor welfare on the street. Feeding strays is a compassionate act.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Anila for this sharing.

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

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • 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

Dharma sharing by Hue before we proceeded with DS puja & Rinpoche Swift Return puja. Hue is one of the long time Kechara Penang members and he comes to puja regularly. He shared that he truly believes that Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche always there guiding him. He shared how sometimes DS will give him hints to avert troubles ahead or to alert him when he 'misbehaved'. Hope many will come to know more about this powerful Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden aka DS. Having Dorje Shugden is like having a powerful ally that will protect us day and night. Just trust Him and have faith. Kechara Penang Study Group, 25/11/2023 by Jacinta.
