Buddhist Pastors Around The World

Feb 8, 2017 | Views: 8,985

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Buddhism is a religion that stresses compassion towards everyone and this is clearly evident with the growth of the world-wide trend of Buddhist pastors, ministers and chaplains. Practitioners are becoming more and more aware that they can help others by training in pastoral care and fulfilling the roles of a pastor in order to benefit society. They are becoming a beacon of hope in the ravenous storm of suffering that is life, providing much needed support and care.

From counselling, visiting people in hospital or prison, performing pujas or prayers for those who are ill or facing difficulties, pastors realise that they need to help others overcome their suffering and so aid them in any way they can. Motivated by Buddhist teachings, they try to alleviate the suffering of others in its many forms, both physical and emotional. In doing so they teach others the Buddhist path to help themselves, and bring hope to many all over the world. Everyone needs assistance, encouragement and direction to navigate the ups and downs of life, and Buddhist pastors are there to accompany practitioners out of their suffering.

Kechara has its own pastors who serve practitioners and the community in a number of ways, but this is not something that only exists within Kechara. There are many pastors all over the world and there are even many places where people can train to become pastors, ministers and chaplains. I wanted to share with you just some of these training places and give some examples of pastors and chaplains, so you can rejoice and know more about the work of many people all over the world, who make a real difference in the lives of others.

Not only to do they aid others in person but they also have a strong practice of sharing the teachings and providing support through books, online videos, and blogs. Since Malaysia is a multicultural country, Kechara pastors teach and counsel in different languages to aid Buddhist practitioners in their native languages.

    Pastor usually refers to the person who manages and gives teachings in a church. In Malaysia, we don’t come across this title in a Buddhist center. But in Kechara, such position was created by Tsem Rinpoche a few years ago.

    In overseas, the Buddhist Pastors is not something new or uncommon. There are centers that provide courses to train someone to become a Pastor to help the public. Therefore, it is not something Tsem Rinpoche just created. The role of a Pastor in Kechara includes giving counseling and advice, giving Dharma teachings, performing blessing rituals, performing last rite and many more.

    Tsem Rinpoche created the Pastorship program in Kechara because there are some laypersons who want to dedicate their lives to help others. Besides, it is also more comfortable for laypersons to talk about their problems with a Pastor especially if it is related to family or relationship. This is actually a good idea as sometimes it is not very convenient to talk to a monk the problems with our partners or children.

    It is heartening to know that many Buddhist Chaplains and Pastors are serving the masses and bringing the buddha dharma in the context that can be accepted by the people at their location.

    It is a necessary function for people who might be undergoing problems and challenges and they need people who have Buddhist background to support and assist through their difficult times.

  3. Lin Mun on Mar 14, 2017 at 9:36 pm

    It is very interesting to know that there are so many Buddhist pastors and Buddhist Chaplains around world. Pastors are very important as a person to bring dharma knowledge and reach out to many more people. Many people need guidance spiritually and with the existence of pastors, he/she can get more attention and advise easily.

    We are very fortunate that Kechara has many pastors who we can reach them when we need spiritual guidance.

  4. Joy on Mar 1, 2017 at 6:14 pm

    From these great findings of so many Buddhist ministers/chaplains and pastors. It really shows that having a Buddhist Pastorship in Kechara is nothing new at all. I wonder why there were so many opposing when Rinpoche first started announcing this concept? Perhaps people are not so exposed and familiar with it?

    Well, here is it and it looks like they even have courses and programmes to train you to be a Buddhist chaplain/pastor. This is another vision Rinpoche has with out Pastorship programs. This blog post gave us some really good examples and it is really inspirational to know that there are so many people out there who are keen to learn and become a Buddhist Chaplain or Pastors. I guess if we have syllabus they can come to learn, I am sure people will want join in. Very great rejoicing news indeed!

    I didn’t realise they even have Buddhist Chaplain programs in Harvard! Wow it just shows that Buddhist Chaplain or Pastorship is not something new and uncommon. Otherwise the prestigious universities would not have in as one of their courses. Thank you Pastor Niral for listing down all the brilliant Buddhist Chaplain/Pastorship program.

  5. Pastor Chia on Mar 1, 2017 at 8:17 am

    I am feeling greatful seeing more buddhist pastors around the world vow to serve others following by buddha dharma. I still remember when H. E.Tsem Rinpoche first ordain buddhist pastor at Malsysia. Many people did not hear about buddist pastor. Most of people only related pastor to the church.

    currently Kechara Buddhist Organization had 17 pastors, which offer more services to helping public. Rinpoche also pass the lineage for pastor to ordain new pastors . I wish to see more pastor from different tradition to help to promote buddha dharma.

    Thank you rinpoche sharing this wonderful article bring more hope to people who seeking for help and there is many pastors around the world. Om Mani Pedme Hum.

  6. Pastor Albert on Mar 1, 2017 at 7:36 am

    I like reading this article, it is great to see so many institution that trained up pastors to provide spiritual service to the people.

    Many people did not understand and thought that Pastor only available in Church, Pastor only for Christian, and how come a Buddhist center also has pastors, I got asked this question many times in the past years. I’m glad to see so many pastors around the world and this article has also shown that Kechara is not the only Dharma center has Pastors, other Dharma center also has Pastors and they existed long before Kechara do.

    These groups of Pastors are not an ordained monk / nun, but to me, they are no different than a sangha being, because they have renounced from their formal life to become a pastor so they can spend their life benefiting others.

    Rinpoche has took another step ahead, that is to bring pastor service online, as internet is global, Rinpoche added one more column in this blog so that people from any part of the world can ask Kechara’s pastors questions related to Dharma.
    https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/ask-the-pastors

    May more Buddhist pastor appear in more places in the near future so that whenever people needed Pastor service, Pastors are there to assist.

  7. June Kang on Mar 1, 2017 at 7:23 am

    Nowadays younger peoples aren’t attracted to religions. As for Buddhism, younger Chinese may visit the temple once in a year that is during the Chinese New Year. And the rest of the year they hardly study Buddhism and visit the temple.

    I think the people of this generation come to temple or join Meditation with the motivation of discovering who they are and how to better manage their lives instead of searching of religious experience. Hence, they may not approach to the monks because thinking that the monks may not have the experience of life they are having right now. Furthermore with the development of technology which deals with lots information and communications, technology has become hireling of greed and hatred. Therefore it is very good to have more Buddhist Pastors with the appearance of lay person and playing role connect between the sangha and peoples or practitioners can be more effectively reach out to the younger generation and preach the Dharma to change the world.

  8. Pastor Antoinette on Mar 1, 2017 at 3:43 am

    Dharma is something so important and helpful in our life, yet often we need to hit a crisis, have health issues or searching something more in life to search for help and if we are lucky we meet the Dharma..

    It is very inspiring that so many Buddhist pastors, priests and chaplains provide so many significant and supportive activities, all over the world. They help people in various situations of their life. The Dharma is the truth and it guides us to see things clearer and take better decisions for our life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing about these inspiring people and centers all over the world!

  9. Andrea Lai on Mar 1, 2017 at 1:00 am

    It’s a wonderful message to let the world know that there are Buddhist pastors,priests and chaplian regardless of skin color,races and cultures.All of them carried with a same goal and motivation,servicing all sentient beings with compassionate and unconditionally helping those who in needed.
    I’m proud and thankful we have qualified pastors in Kechara into spiritual practice and spreading Dharma to benefit many.

  10. Eric kksiow on Feb 28, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    It is glad to know more Buddhist Pastors around the world, in my case.. From the 1st Buddhist Pastor in Kechara, i am close with Pastor Chia and i know what he did for all the time.

    Eg : As this article mentioned above – He teaches and counsels in Chinese and performs rituals, blessings and ceremonies for all of life’s major events, including births, marriages and deaths.

    I respect all the Pastors in Kechara, they benefit others, work for others, all of their hard-works toward to others, i had seen it by myself.

    Much respect to all the Pastors in Kechara and around the world

  11. Pastor Henry Ooi on Feb 28, 2017 at 10:49 pm

    It is wonderful to know of so many other Buddhist institutions worldwide offering pastoral services apart from Kechara. Many people have benefited, are benefiting, and will benefit from these services. Of course, other religious centres have similar services according to their own religious belief. These pastors or whatever name they are called have the common goal, that is to provide spiritual services to their members.

  12. nicholas on Feb 28, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    It’s heart warming to see that how Buddhist teaching has evolve to direct benefit people through the establishment of pastorship. I remembered H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche conceptualised Kechara pastorship to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefitting others. The 1st Kechara pastorship ordination was held on the 24th October 2011. Can read more at https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/first-ever-buddhist-pastor-ordination.html

    Reading this article and knowing so many countries around the world established the pastorship to provide so many spiritual services to help people with various problem from different background is so rejoicing. May more places provide more such services and help more people around the world with the blessing of the 3 jewels.

  13. Mingwen on Feb 28, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    Buddhist pastors, ministers and chaplains, everyone of them are preparing and charging up themselves with skills and knowledges to benefit others with their lives and efforts.

    They provides essential aids to the needy
    by providing hopes and cares at critical moments, when one is facing difficulties in life. They serve the world tirelessly just to take away people’s , animals’ and unseen beings’ sufferings.

    May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes,
    May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes,
    May all sentient beings never be separated from sorrowless bliss,
    May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger. –

    Its wonderful that there are so many places in the world that are nurturing chaplains, pastors & teachers to spread Buddhism. These people learn and train so hard so that they can benefit others. How inspiring!

    I especially like the part where they also extended their help to inmates. These inmates really need the kindness, compassion and wisdom to help them.

    I am very proud that Kechara have our very own pastors. Some are Sangha-to-be while the others are layperson pastors. Our pastors go through vigorous training and learning just like those mentioned above, so that they can assist H.E Tsem Rinpoche to nurture and benefit others. They are super hardworking and always on the go where help is needed. Read about them here http://www.kechara.com/kechara-house/pastors/

  15. Julia Tan on Feb 28, 2017 at 1:26 am

    It is very inspiring to see so many Buddhist organisations offered their pastoral service to the public and in universities. The services covered wide range of needs from birth till death, from ritual to prayers, from education to training, from counselling to blessings and the list goes on. I rejoice to see pastoral service is growing every where in the world. People study and understand the Dharma and then come together to do something big to benefits others. and so many people benefited. Everything is about give and love unconditionally and practicing compassion.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about Buddhist pastors from all around the world. Whether the pastors are from Asia or from the Western countries, their main motivation is to help those in need of their service. I am surprised that many Westerners have take on Buddhism as their spiritual practice. May more and more people be benefitted from the advice of the pastors.

    With foldex palms,

    Wonderful ….. there is so many institutions offers courses to integrate contemplative Buddhist practices with professional training.All the centers are all over world wide training Buddhist Pastors. .This show that Buddhism is spreading near and far in all direction.Buddhism is a religion that stresses compassion towards everyone that requiring religious, pastoral and spiritual care.We have our own Pastors too at KFR who serve practitioners and the community in many ways.They give support to many through prayers and blessings which is very helpful.They also practice of sharing , teachings and knowledge to many .Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Many lay Buddhists have a great love for the Dharma as they believe the knowledge and in depth study of the Buddha’s stainless teachings creates a inner peace and outer peace for a better world to live in.

    However, many due to previous commitments or lack of merits are unable in this lifetime to enter the monastic order, and with the creation of lay Pastors, it is possible for such lay buddhists to share their love of the Dharma to others.

    It is very motivational and encouraging to know that besides Kechara, there are many institutions that trains Buddhist Pastors, to live their passion of sharing and practising the Dharma.

  19. Lew on Feb 12, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    We now live in a world with a lot of distractions to spiritual practice. For whatever the reason (financial commitments, work commitments, need to take care of family & kids, etc), they stopped us to become a fully ordained monk or nun. Therefore, I fully agree with Tsem Rinpoche’s vision of Buddhists Pastors. It is lay people like everyone else, with the extra motivation to benefit people by spending more time to learn the Dharma and benefit others. Also, people may find lay people pastors more approachable because lay people also faces similar issues in life.

    Nowadays, many people will only turn to Dharma or spiritual when there are some troubles or issues in their live. (In other words, many of us won’t look at spiritual when everything is “fine”) Therefore, Buddhist Pastors play an important role. While solving people’s issue, they will also help them to become more spiritual and eventually practice Dharma and benefit others.

    I pray Buddhist Pastors can grow and more people become Pastors to benefit others.

  20. Stella Cheang on Feb 10, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the list of learning institutions where one can enrol to become a qualified Buddhist Pastors, Priests, Chaplains or Ministers. It is admirable when someone develop the altruistic motivation to serve others, even though it can be a thankless job. A qualified Buddhist Pastors, Priest, Chaplains or Ministers, therefore, is the embodiment of compassion and wisdom coupled with strong faith. May many people be inspired by these shining examples.

  21. Bradley Kassian on Feb 8, 2017 at 9:33 pm

    It’s amazing, and encouraging to see that pastors come from all walks of life and many organizations. Offering services from marriages, commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows, funerals, internment of ashes, memorial services, baby blessings, baby naming ceremonies and house blessings etc. All these pastors no matter what organization have a very compassionate heart to do what they do. They are an inspiration to all of us.

    Methar of Tengyeling Monastery

    A gruelsome read of the cruelty that exist within the holiest office in Tibet. Ministers of the Dalai Lama are very much into the power and money game, without any other authority to stop their heinous actions. A sad fact of the power wielded by the office of the Dalai Lama.

    The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century. Dorje Shugden is an uncommon Dharma protector within Tibetan Buddhism, who is said to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically. Lama Tsongkhapa was the founder of the great Gelug lineage. Dorje Shugden, in his previous incarnation as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, was a great scholar, meditator, teacher and contemporary of His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. After being murdered, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as Dorje Shugden in order to benefit countless sentient beings.

    Tibetan ‘government-in-exile’ known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was called to session and Tenpa Yarphel, a notable Member of the Tibetan Parliament (MP) spoke up about the need for Tibetans to be united. Specifically, Tenpa Yarphel bravely addressed a very thorny issue that most Tibetan policy makers have sidestepped for over 20 years, and that is the Dorje Shugden unethical ban that, by now, everyone knows has been very damaging to the fragile Tibetan unity. It is really refreshing to see a Tibetan MP speaking confidently about the realities faced by the Tibetans in exile, with the intention of moving forward to a better future instead of being stuck in myriad divisive policies that have really harmed the Tibetan polity and harmony.

    Tenpa Yarphel is one of the heroes that will bring a different for Tibetan. More Tibetan like Tenpa Yarphel should participate and speak up. Tibetan need a change in their government and no longer to follow the old way as it’s proven it doesn’t work.

    “I suppose now what I’m interested in is Nirvana, the Buddhist heaven. I don’t know much about it, or really understand it enough to explain it. George knows more.

    Studying religion has made me try to improve relationships, not to be unpleasant. It’s not a conscious move to change my personality. Perhaps it is. I don’t know. I’m just trying to be how I want to be, and how I’d like others to be.

    Drugs probably helped the understanding of myself better, but not much. Not pot. That just used to be a harmless giggle.”

    Dorje Shugden – The Protector of Our Time

    The power of enlightened Dharma protectors comes from their enlightened nature, which is compassionate and wisdom-filled. On the deepest level, they represent our blissful awareness of emptiness in strong energetic forms – the best protection against obstacles. The Dharma protectors protect sincere spiritual practitioners who seek their higher selves, see the downfalls of materialism and other problems created by the human mind.

    I personally have experienced the powers of Dorje Shugden much to my amazement for each request I make even of the minute ask is fulfilled sometimes immediately within the day of asking or several days to weeks depending on my extend of my life request.

    His compassionate nature and swift powers are to be witnessed only by those who are willing to give the divine being a chance for him to connect with you and render help. Ask DS and you shall receive. I have!

    If one single person can make such an immense positive contribution,imagine how the world could change for the better if only its population derives inspiration from this one man’s effort regardless of race, colour, creed, or belief.

    Greed destroys, selflessness sustains both our existence and other living existence on this planet.

    Ku Shulan is a inspiring women as i know and i realized this after reading this article. She doesn’t have a good marriage life but she has a very good talent in paper cutting. Even though she doesn’t have a good backbone, she still cuts vegetables for her family.

    She is very creative and her creativity is known worldwide but her life didn’t change by that. She didn’t waste her life by worrying about her family situation but she get up by using her creativity. Thank you.

    This story is very inspiring. By reading this article, i can understand that nothing is impossible in this universe. Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.

    Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants. Youngsters can take this inspiring story as their guidance for them to improve their live from nothing to become a topper.

    If you have listened to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings or had the good fortune to meet him personally, you know that he has an irrepressible sense of humour. Rinpoche has a way of making people relax and have a really good laugh.

    To do that, he uses his keen sense of observation and incredibly quick mind – nothing escapes his eyes. Some of the funniest moments are when Rinpoche mimics a student’s mannerisms or improvises scenarios that relate to the student’s expressions or reactions towards unpleasant situations or people. They are always spot on and pose a real danger of giving the audience belly-aching laughter.

    Can you plant an entire forest by yourself? The answer is, yes! The fourth highest civilian award in the Republic of India, Padma Shri awardee Jadav “Molai” Payeng single-handedly transformed the barren land of Majuli in Assam into a dense forest by planting a sapling a day since 40 years ago. He started his mission to revive the once barren, sandy river banks of Majuli when he was 16 years old after a startling discovery. Numerous snakes were found dead on the sandy banks of Brahmaputra River after a life-threatening flood. The snakes died from heat due to the lack of shades.

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.
    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
