(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.

    The guard in Kechara Forest Retreat is sensitive to unseen beings. He often sees spirits walking up and down the road outside of the gate of Kechara Forest Retreat but could not get in. One particular spirit he saw is 7 feet tall without a head but with a pair of red eyes on the chest. He said he is not afraid of the spirits because he is protected by Dorje Shugden. Kechara Forest Retreat is the mandala of Vajrayogini and is highly blessed. No spirits or negative energy can enter unless permission is given. From what the guard has said, this is proven to be true.

    22 years ago, a ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden was imposed by the Tibetan leadership, Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) in Dharamsala. Since the ban was imposed, the Tibetan community is split into groups and Dorje Shugden practitioners are segregated. The CTA said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit and he is harmful, he will jeopardise the Tibet Cause and shorten the Dalai Lama’s life. Many people are misled by the CTA and believe what they said. Fortunately, Tsem Rinpoche and Kecharians have created videos to address all the lies the CTA has been telling to clear Dorje Shugden’s name. Please watch the videos to learn more about the issues and not to be misled.

    The mystery of Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, a mummy whose body defies time has amazed the world. Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov was a Buryat Buddhist lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. According to his last will and testament he requested to be buried as he was at the time of his death, sitting in lotus posture Only that he asked to be exhumed after 30 years Later. His body was exhumed and examined by Buddhist monks, discovered surprisingly that there is no signs of decay of his body after so many years. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche this sharing.

    Stupas were built in ancient times serving as tombs for important figures, but has since been renewed by the Buddha to represent the heart of Enlightenment. Since then , many Dorje Shugden stupas have built in every Buddhist country in the world and by Buddhists of all traditions especially inTibet . Every corner over Tibet many Dorje Shugden stupas have been erected then. This is a sign that the magnificent Protector and its practice is spreading far and wide.
    Due to the power of its blessings to practitioners, stupas are often a pilgrimage destination for Buddhists and many will circumambulate the stupa as it is a very meritorious. One such place is the famous Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal and our very own Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong ,Pahang Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Videos Redressing the Misinformation About Dorje Shugden and the Tibetan Situation

    Please do watch these enlightening videos that serves to clarify the truth about the Tibetan situation. You owe it to yourself to understand the disinformation that the Tibetan Leaders are dispensing to their people to divert attention away from their failures. Very disgraceful!

    Dr. Ambedkar: Supreme Champion of Human Rights

    Dr. Ambedkar is a hero and icon for the Dalits of India who were once called ‘Untouchables.’ He fought to eradicate the discrimination and inequality that he knew all too well because he, too, was an Untouchable by birth. He was a leader of the Dalits and the Law Minister of the Government of India from 1947 to 1951.

    Mahatma Gandhi’s fight for freedom involved uniting India to rise against an external enemy – the colonial British regime that ravaged the country – but Dr. Ambedkar’s struggle was a far more challenging one as he was fighting against his own people. He was fighting the oppression and inequality that has been deeply entrenched for thousands of years as part of his society’s religious and cultural dogma.

    Huge outdoor Tsongkapa!

    Both Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Rinpoche prophesied Tsongkhapa’s birth and attainments. At the time of Buddha Shakyamuni, a young boy who was a previous incarnation of Tsongkhapa presented a crystal rosary to Buddha and received a conch shell in return. Buddha prophesied Manjushri would be born as a boy in Tibet, would found Ganden monastery, and would present a crown to my statue. Buddha gave the boy the future name Sumati-kirti (Blo-bzang grags-pa, Lozang-dragpa). Guru Rinpoche also prophesied a monk named Lozang-dragpa would be born near China, would be regarded as an emanation of a great bodhisattva, and would make a Buddha-statue into a Sambhogakaya representation.

    Wow, this young boy could paint like an experienced painter with a style that is so unique. He is very talented since young. But where does the talent come from? How come some people have a special talent since birth but some do not? For Buddhists, we believe that the talent is actually the imprint from the previous life. It is something that the person has done so much in their previous life that when they take rebirth in another body, they still have the tendency to do the same thing if the condition is right.

    This special post “Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s Advice on Dorje Shugden’s Practice” contains His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s actual speech and the accompanying English translation on the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice and lineage. Fantastic! We all know Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is the same nature as Heruka-Chakrasamvara. To hear his voice is a tremendous blessing as he was an erudite Pandit, master artist, supreme debater, historian, Mahasiddha and highly attained yogi. He was also extremely kind, loving, caring and he dedicated his whole life to teaching the Dharma to thousands. He was a beautiful human being. He was also my spiritual father and root guru.

    I came across his beautiful speech on the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and I have blogged his holy speech so that many around the world can listen to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche explain the benefits of this supreme protector. There can be no doubts after this.

    Who dare say that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was wrong, errant, without knowledge or evil? No one can say this as it is untrue. So far this blog post has garnered over 134k (one hundred thirty-four thousand views)!! It has reached a vast amount of people so they can hear first hand from an enlightened lama how beneficial Dorje Shugden is!! Many wonderful people who seek knowledge and wisdom will benefit from this and I rejoice.

    In his love for me, over 30 years ago Kyabje Zong Rinpoche personally instructed me to practice Dorje Shugden and I know he would never give me anything that would harm me or anyone else. As such, I have great confidence and I share Dorje Shugden with thousands including family, close friends, benefactors and so many others who need help because I know he will benefit others as he did me. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a Bodhisattva who lived his life only to benefit others. Whatever promises I have made to him, I will never abandon. I will forever bow to his holy feet.

    Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    P.S. To this post I have recently added translations of these speeches into Japanese, Nepalese and Spanish.

    Queen Genepil, the last queen of Mongolia and last wife of the last Mongol Khan. Interesting short biography of this Mongol queen. At age 33 in her 5 months pregnancy , she was executed with her father because of her involvement with the Japanese forces . Queen Genepil had in fact concealed many mystery and past secrets in the palace unknown to many. She looked pretty in the queen costumes with a beautiful head gear, just wondering if nowadays the Mongolian Queen wear this . We are considered fortunate able to see this rare costumes. Interesting history to read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Interesting news …… Oklahoma Supreme Court had decide to separate religion and politics. The history of the world, we can see clearly how the involvement of government in religious matters has caused great discrimination among the communities. An example in the Tibetan Leardership , because of the ban on Dorje Shugen practice it cause hardships, suffering ,discrimination, disharmony, and many more. For the past decades , many of the Tibetans in exiles had suffered badly. Where religion is concern ,politics should not comes in. Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, and so forth without government influence and intervention. It also includes the freedom to change one’s religion or beliefs. No government should speak against another religion or any religion. Peace, harmony and happiness can only materialised with respect among and within all people. Everyone of us should be given the choice to what we want to pray.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Dorje Shugden Gyenze to Increase Life, Merits and Wealth

    In one of our private sessions, I asked Kensur Rinpoche, “If we fully rely on Dorje Shugden, and focus on Dorje Shugden, technically can we become fully enlightened?” And Kensur Rinpoche thought about it and he said, “Yes, we definitely can become fully enlightened because Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened being.”

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.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them.

I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

    1 years 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
