(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear Henry,

I am happy to see your practice.

It’s ‘funny’, but at the time of death, considering all of our activities in our lifetime, the ‘activity’ below are the ONLY ACTIONS that will help you at the decisive moment of death.

When you do your daily practices as written below, please add death meditation while you are doing them. Daily be focused on your death meditation. Be creative… sometimes see yourself dying in a car accident with all the pain and gore… see yourself with a disease and dying slowly, or suddenly in your sleep… die different ways daily in your practice…. Contemplate in detail the death of your body, how your body will rot and decay. How you have taken care of your body and give it so much ‘pleasures’ yet it is a traitor dying and rotting on you. Yes, your body is not yours. See your body rotting, stench filled,  decaying and infested with maggots. See the maggots really eating away at your body, till it becomes bones… and identify that this body IS NOT HENRY. Henry is not this body, although Henry was connected to this body… think deeply on that while you do your black tea, mantras, recitations, and prostrations… Don’t imagine your body decaying, but ‘see’ it with your mind’s eye. Make it real as possible as it will become real anyway eventually. Sometimes see your body being prepared for cremation, and see your body burning away. Do this type of death meditation daily… be aware of it… then your mind will shift even more… See your possession given away and your kids, friends, loved ones continuing after you are gone and how eventually you will be remembered less and less. People do not wish to forget you, but eventually will. Eventually they will be gone too. They will be forgotten… nothing but space remains… even that does not remain as we see it.

Everything that was identified as Henry’s or belonging to Henry will be gone. Then think within this ’emptiness’ of non-existent Henry, what is important then? Think deeply. You don’t have to come out with any conclusions from this contemplation…just think. The purpose of this is not for a conclusion, but the whole process of death and visualizing it is highly important….Please do it Henry. Do it daily and do it creatively and do it with 100% conviction. Ask the Buddhas and Protector to give you realizations while doing this meditation. Add to the meditation on your own. Put more into than what I have written. Death meditation if done continuously is the one practice that will transform the mind, our actions, motivations and aspirations for a higher end. It will really change us for bigger and much better purposes.

With care, I’ve written this to you and now when I re-read it, I wish to share it with other liaisons and students also. Your email is private, but I will share as it will benefit. Don’t mind please.  I recommend the liaisons and students to do it also please … Henry, when the time of our lives come to an end, smile for a better journey ahead because you’ve ‘packed your bags and made good travel plans’.

Doing your practice, living a good life of Dharma, having a positive eventual death/bardo/rebirth/ and continuing your practice in the future is the ONLY PURPOSE WE MET. I am happy to have met you.

Henry is a long time student, everyday he does his sadhanas, prayers and prostrations as I have recommended specific ones for him. I added the above contemplations for Henry today to do while engaged in his daily recitations/practices/prostrations. I thought I’d share this email to him with everyone as it will benefit many I feel. Everyone may add the contemplations with their practice daily…

May everyone be ok always,
Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teaching and sharing of Pastor Henry’s update to us. It give us a very good reminder. We have very limited time and hence, shall always prepared for death. When we died we do not bring anything other than our karma.

    Therefore, mind transformation and change of our action is very important.

  2. Wai Meng Wan on Sep 18, 2015 at 1:48 am

    How do we tell most people that one day the body that they have nurtured, cared, exercised, fought others for, pampered will one day betray their current existence. They also need to accept that spiritual practice, practices of that nature, and meditative practices that can affect the subtlest levels of our minds are the only ones that benefit us during death. Nothing of this world can we bring to the next life. Death meditation seeks not so much to shock us, but to make us realize that all that lives must one day pass away. Only by accepting that we have an expiry date can we truly live well.

  3. Alice Tay on May 24, 2015 at 5:19 pm

    对一般人来说,尤其是比较年长的一辈,他们都会避忌不谈关于死亡的一切。很多人不明白死亡到底是什么一回事,还有它的过程。也就因为这样,他们害怕甚至是恐惧死亡的到来。

    而我以前,其实也是他们的其中一人。但自从在克切拉参加佛法班后,让我理解到原来死亡并不可怕。我们甚至可以从现在开始学习“念死”。就如上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切所说的,我们必须利用在平时做早课或是晚课时间加插“念死”的部分。因为,每个人都必定会经历死亡,逃不了。不如趁早利用我们的想像力,想到自己在死亡中。而真正我们死亡的那一刻,我们就好会有心理准备的来面对一切。

    感谢仁波切在这片博文提醒了我们要每天深思熟虑,要自觉。当我们学会与常常“念死”时,慢慢的我们会看到我们的心识转变,我们的行为,发心与意愿就会达到更高更好的标准。

  4. Wei Theng on May 16, 2015 at 12:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for using this as one of the blog chat topic.
    Reading it and discussing it, it pushes me to see that at the end of my life, what’s really matter is not what i possess now, such as my body, my family, my friends, the thing that i have or want to have, or even my enemy. At the end of my life, it is what Dharma that I have practiced, what karma and merits that I have collected that will be with me. It also shows me that I am so fortunate to have Rinpoche as my Guru to guide me and care for me not just in this life, but what I will be in my next lives. I should treasure it and do Dharma all the way while I’m still alive. Thank you Rinpoche.

  5. Vinnie Tan on May 15, 2015 at 12:44 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful meditation with all of us.

    Death is something that we will all face sooner or later, yet all of us fear of it and never want to once face the fact that we will all die no matter if we were to think about it or not.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us to be creative with the ways we die as there are many different ways that we are can die from. By being creative with the methods, we will be able to predict for all situations and will not be shocked with how we die when we are in face with it.

  6. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on May 14, 2015 at 11:56 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the message for Pastor Henry with us. From my understanding, we need to prepare ourselves well for our death so that we will be ready for next life to continue with our Dharma practice towards reaching to enlightenment and Buddhahood. May more people starts to realise that one day , each of us will have to leave this place and take rebirth according to individual karma. Thank you Rinpoche for explaining in depth of the importance of death meditation.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  7. Sharon Ong on May 14, 2015 at 11:31 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I hope that with Rinpoche’s guidance and blessings, when my time comes, I will be unafraid and wear a smile for a better journey ahead because I have ‘packed my bags and made good travel plans’.

    With folded hands.

  8. Stella Cheang on May 14, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    Rinpoche had shared with us several teachings on Death. Here, Rinpoche emphasized again the importance and gave us guidelines on how to meditate on Death through an open letter to Pastor Henry.

    Hence, it impressed on me that contemplation on Death is extremely important. By meditating on it, we will reduce the panic feeling at the exact moment of death. We will be able put urgency into things that matter instead of being lazy, procrastinating, depressed or self serving.

    Thank You very much Rinpoche for your kindness to repetitively share with us the teaching on Death, preparing us for the most important moment of this lifetime of ours.

    Humbly with folded palms,
    Stella

  9. Grace Leong on May 1, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche. There’s so much care and love for Pastor Henry in your message to him. Rinpoche has carefully planned every step to help the student achieve the ultimate. We are truly so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our Guru. Due to Pastor Henry’s request for more Dharma those of us around also benefit from this teaching. Thank you Pastor Henry Ooi. Thank you dear Rinpoche. With folded hands.

    I read this this morning. In the afternoon after committing mass genocide, I mean cutting the grass, I went to pick up a dead bird I saw to move underneath a tree. Well the bird has been dead a while apparently because I picked it up and white maggots – tons fell out! The maggots had eaten into half the body. Disgusting. Now I have a very vivid image (and the smell) burned into my brain and can apply this image as happening to my own body. Much more effective then just trying to imagine is to see in person. Not just on a screen or photo but real live life!

  11. Jacinta Goh on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    This letter has been in mind for most of the time. Another letter is for G( if I am not mistaken). Both letters serve to shake my body and push me all this while. Thanks Henry, without you I think KWPC will not manifest this quick. Besides, it is overwhelming to have actually known the practices that you have to do daily! I am amazed. May your efforts continue to inspire and benefit others!

  12. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Sep 15, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Salute to Henry, I’m inspired by your daily commitment.

    Remembering death is a walk up call for me and an urgent one. Death meditation, I must say is a must to do for all of us, either weekly or daily basis, so that it can enhances our improvement on our spiritual path or simply just be a better human being. Never be too afraid of death because this is a must go through path for all of us, we have to be prepared for it so that we would not be afraid. Just like before we perform any concert, we must be practising few years before the actual performance. Death is instant and we must be preparing for it now, cause we don’t know what will happen to us next.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this subject matter again.

  13. Henry Ooi on Jan 13, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    Thank you, dear Rinpoche, for posting this as a reminder to me.

  14. wei theng on Jan 10, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.
    I read it a few times but whenever i read it, i just feel it is so true that pursuing the world gain is so much meaningless. The more we meditate and see that our body is just nothing, we will not attach so much to the worldly things and would really make full use of our current live to do more to practise and benefit others. This really pushes me to do more as what Rinpoche said “when the time of our lives come to an end, smile for a better journey ahead because you’ve ‘packed your bags and made good travel plans. “

  15. jennifer on Jan 4, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us the death meditation.
    This is a profound teaching and i will include it in my daily prayers. I do have a fascination on death, not because i’m morbid, not at all but it’s because i’m curious about what happens when we leave the ‘shell’ of our bodies.
    This teaching has shown me how we should contemplate on the moment of our death and not be attached to anything nor anyone that we have in our lifetime, including not the attachment on what happens after death and the whole afterlife stuff.
    It’s what we do in our present lifetime that matters ! It’s what we do with our Body, Speech and Mind , it’s how we live our lives – in Compassion, in serving others, in the giving – in Dharma.

  16. AdelineTan on Jan 3, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Henry is very lucky to have met Rinpoche at the right timing, he has since then followed Rinpoche’s instructions to do his daily practice given by Rinpoche and transformed himself,very inspiring. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the email Henry sent to you.

  17. Uncle Eddie on Jan 2, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    As from Achaan Chah’s narration on his experience as a young monk gained from sitting at his father’s sickbed duringthe last days of his father’s life. “When we don’t understand death”, Achaan Chah wrote, “life can be very confusing”. Because of this experience, Achaan Chah was strongly motivated in his practice to discover the causes of our worldly sufferings, and the source of peace and freedom taught by Lord Buddha. By his own account, he held nothing back, giving up everything for the Dharma – the Truth. Staying in the forests, he encountered much hardships and sufferings, but able to bring about what he calls a daring to his practice. Out of this daring, eventually grew wisdom, a joyful spirit and an uncanny ability to help others, so said his book of teachings, representing the quality of Dharma, which is universal and immediate, appropiate to each of us.

  18. Jessica Yap on Jan 2, 2013 at 2:43 am

    Henry is such a good superior and a good leader.KP outlets are doing so well under his leadership. Best boss anyone could ever ask for.

    Dear Mr.Ooi, thank you for being a great leader and from this blog post, thank you for being an inspiration! I need to learn the determination and integrity that you have shown. Thank you.. =)

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

    Meditation on death and impermanence is the best and most effective meditation to rid oneself of attachments. I was inspired by Rinpoche’s email to Henry Ooi to do meditation on death but I only do it occasionally. Recently in one of the meditation sessions in Kechara House’s Sunday service, I led the meditation on death and impermanence. The Buddha taught about death in the Samyutta Nikaya saying that life is short, therefore one must not cling to self or body and that one should become a wanderer, that is, leading a homeless life. In the Digha Nikaya, the Buddha talked about impermanence, saying that all compounded things are impermanent, and their nature is to rise and cease and the bringing of them to an end is bliss. So there is no need to cling to things that are impermanent.

  20. ERIC LEE KHJB on Dec 31, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    每天的sadhana对一个修行的人来说都非常的重要,他可以提醒我们什么该做,什么不该做,它也可以帮助我们累积功德,让我们可以变成一个更好的人。

    恭喜Henry可以坚持去做他每一天的功课,让我们一起加油。

  21. grace (KHJB) on Dec 31, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    This is really useful to us again, to remind us death is just around..what else we still attached to ? it sad that many of us still sinking in the sea of attachment..

  22. Joy on Dec 31, 2012 at 3:36 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I really like Rinpoche’s teaching on visualising death and being creative in thinking how we die and to meditate upon this every day is truly empowering. While I was reading Rinpoche’s words, I was alreadly easily seeing the picture in my head… I must say it is a scary thought and then you realise… following Rinpoche’s words… yes it is true how much ‘pleasures’, ‘pain’ and time we wasted on trivial experience that will lead us no where. And the more I got creative, the more I felt disgusted with the body… what a huge betrayal… and to actually be so attached to it, so silly we are.

    I’m gonna do this meditation daily to push myself to improve because with such reminders, we realise how short and precious this ‘human’ form really is and then we appreciate the important things we have now better… like the great fortune we have in meeting Rinpoche and the Dharma. I will share this on FB… may the smart and lucky ones benefit from it too. I wish many would be able to read this and realise how life is so short and so fragile… we should not waste it on meaningless affairs.

  23. MayOng on Dec 30, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Sometimes when we look around us and all the happenings in life, we tend to ask “will all these be permanent?”. If they are not permanent, then what can we count on that will guarantee us a better future? If there is a better future, then how do we get there?

    In Buddhist dharma, I learned we can train our minds into a certain state to anticipate the next stage of life and we can actually look forward to it, if we do the mind trainings. Contemplating on our Death is another method to remind us that death may look permanent on the surface but there is more to it than what it seems.

  24. Sheryl KH (JB) on Dec 30, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Life for me was so ‘typical’ before I come to know Dharma. While I am still very shallow in terms of Dharma knowledge and practice, I have come to understand how impermanent I am together with the belongings that I own now.

    Nothing will stay with me permanently, within this life of mine and certainly all will vanish when I die. I will be remembered for sometimes, but these memories will be gone when those people are gone as well. Nothing is left.

    We like to avoid the topic on death, yet it is something that is so sure. We indulge in doing many things that do not enable us to bring forward to our future lives.

    Now when I look around, I count myself so fortunate to have met Dharma. Life without Dharma can be so void of meaning and explaination to life events.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reposting this blog here. This reminds us once again that our lives are not just about eat, drink and sleep.

  25. Low ksjc on Dec 30, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.I am glad for Mr Henry dedication and achievement.He truly shows guru devotion in his action and thoughts.he speaks dharma and share dharma.A good example for us to follow.I would start on the death meditation soon , hopefully I could experience the mind transformation soon too.

    Thank you Henry for your inspiration.

  26. Paris on Dec 30, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    This is incredible! I just chanced upon this again, not having seen this before and am astounded by the power of this letter that Rinpoche had written to Henry. This isn’t the first time I have heard this teaching from Rinpoche but it continues again and again to resound – perhaps indication enough that I haven’t yet contemplated enough on it and need to do it more.

    I thought one of the most profound and striking teachings Rinpoche ever gave was a contemplation of being in the coffin itself. To think of ourselves lying in the coffin, dressed in our finest clothes, the people who love us standing around and looking at us; and then to think of them closing the coffin, nailing that last nail in, then being lowered into the ground and the earth being thrown on top of us. Rinpoche taught to do this meditation NOT as us looking down at ourselves, but as if we are in the coffin ourselves, looking outwards. then, as we visualise this, to think of all the things that we deem “important” right now – who won the last argument, our clothes, our wealth, our relationships, our wanting face etc… does it become important anymore? And how does it help us at that crucial moment as we’re being lowered into the ground? If we do this correctly, all the things we’re attached to begin to fall away and we let go of grasping onto it so tightly because we eventually realize exactly what Rinpoche talks about in this post, about realizing that this body isn’t really “ours” as we think it is.

    PS: There are other death teachings on youtube from rinpoche too, here:
    The Dying process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AonaB3o22lk
    Meditation on death: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4j5RJfu5X0

  27. Julia Tan on Jul 7, 2012 at 3:56 am

    How to let ourselves think or believe that when that day come we can actually believing that we are just going to a new journey? Is that mean, we familiarize ourselves with how we gonna die to generate fear and hope that we see the ugliness of being in samsara chasing desire? Imagine if we are dying tomorrow, what would you want to do? Tomorrow is our last day! Basically we do not know what to do if we do not have any practice or dharma knowledge on it. Hence prepare from now so that we are ready when it comes.

  28. Sarah on Jul 10, 2011 at 1:16 am

    hmm… looks like i’ll die twice a day for today onwards…

    • sweekeong on Jan 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      This reminds me of the saying that we die every second every instance but we cannot see it, most of us. To us we are existing continuously, physically and mentally, from one moment of thought to another moment of thought. It looks like there is no gap in between. If we can somehow see that we are dieing every moment every second our perspective our thought would change, and thus the things that we would emphasis on in our lives. There is nothing right or wrong of doing things but how we approach it. It is not about what is important to us but truly important to us because we have misled ourselves into what is important to something we can take hold of in the future instead of the now. Always pursuing something for the future brings nothing signficant to us now. Also it is not doing away without plans.

  29. David Lai on Jul 9, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the most potent of contemplations. It is not easy to think of death and yet we must face it. If it wasn’t for Rinpoche’s reminders, I wouldn’t given much thought much to my death and the idea of mortality seemed so distant and yet when I do think about it, I get scared. Perhaps, a lot of attachment to this body and enjoyments.

  30. Lim Han Nee on Jul 9, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this powerful teaching on Meditation on Death and Impermanence which you gave to Henry.

    I have been trying to do this meditation. Then last night, at our Lamrim class, which was also on Death and Impermanence, Mr Ngeow really jolted me ‘awake’ with his pointing out to us that everything,including the 18 opportune conditions of this our optimum human rebirth, is impermanent. If we don’t make full use of our time Dharmically, every moment that the 18 opportune conditions are still with us, then when they ‘disappear’ in part and then in total, we would be devastated!When death comes(which may even be before the 18 opportune conditions start to disappear!) it will be the end of all our hopes and dreams about our future rebirths, and our hope of Enlightenment. Nay, it will mean falling for sure into the lower realms!

    Impermanence is ‘good’ provided we realize it and are aware of it every moment of our waking lives.Then , when we combine this awareness with regularly meditating on Death as vividly as Rinpoche has shown us, we will surely be propelled towards positive action and mind transformation.

  31. Margaretlee on Jul 8, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with all of us. It will definitely benefit those who dare to use their creativities to imagaine the types of death that may come….perhaps just round the corners……

    It is only by facing death directly that we will be able to overcome it.

    May we all be able to gain realisations by meditation on death.

    • tsemtulku on Jul 8, 2011 at 3:45 pm

      We can overcome it. Do we want to pay the price? Either way we have to pay a price, but if we avoid, the price will be higher. Are you ready for that? TR

  32. Annette Chan on Jul 8, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Hi Rinpoche, thank You for sharing Henry’s email and all the creative examples of death meditation. I will also do as what Rinpoche said and learn to meditate on that. Being able to practice Dharma is the most fortunate thing I consider having in this lifetime of mine. Thank You Rinpoche.

  33. tenzin llhamo on Jul 8, 2011 at 10:56 am

    Dearest Rinpoche, thank you so much for sharing the post about death and impermanence. Thank you for Rinpoche’s teachings and love. I am SO HAPPY to have met Rinpoche and Dharma. Life is so much ‘easier’ now.
    We are very proud to be guided by Henry Ooi in many ways, be it work or play.

  34. benji on Jul 8, 2011 at 6:29 am

    Thank you immensely, Rinpochela; and in fact,Brother Henry too, (for, if not for your question, i would not have the wonderful opportunity to benefit from the wonderful answer from Rinpochela. i thought the answer given by Rinpochela was truly appropriate for me (although my problem may vastly differ from Brother Henry’s). Only two days ago, i bumped into friends whom i thought should be working hard to ‘let go’ of their attachments to the ‘flesh’ (all of them were already “uncle-uncle” types). i pondered deeply after that meeting – how should i practice so as not to be influenced by them. Now i see Rinpochela’s wise counsel to Brother Henry as the answer. “kam-sia chhe-chhe!” Rinpochela, and Henry-la!

    • henry ooi on Jul 9, 2011 at 6:53 pm

      Hi Benji,

      I hear from Patsy that you are actively engaging in your practices at your dharma centre, I rejoice to hear that.

      I hope one day I may meet you again, perhaps in KL/PJ.

      Take care, Benji.

      Henry

  35. Ethan Chu on Jul 7, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Yes, many are or try to avoid talking or even thinking about death as if it will never come. But as people get older, the fear of death is stronger… And that’s when most realized whatever they have accomplished whether it’s money, relationships, fame and recognition does not matter anymore. Because death is around the corner ANYTIME.

    Worse is those who can not let go of their attachment and fear of death would think of hundreds different way to “program” their kids to accomplish what they have accomplished and pray that whatever they have, their kids will continue to bear the glory of the parents… It has been that way for decades.

    Thank Buddha for us to meet dharma and prepare us for a bigger purpose than the regulars. Accepting death and look beyond that not only broaden our mind and also point of views… Nothing really matters in the end of the day.

    Thankyou Rinpoche for this post. I hope it reach out to many and accept the beautiful truth eventually.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This story is very inspiring.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 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.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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

  • 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
