Five Regrets of the Dying
By Bronnie Ware Platinum Quality Author

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives.

People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learned never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial, fear, anger, remorse, more denial and eventually acceptance. Every single patient found their peace before they departed though, every one of them.

When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people have had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.

It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.

By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.

We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.

It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.

When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.

Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness

    Yes very true at time of death, many of us might have regrets some of the things not done or wish. Needless to say, this article is incredibly powerful and shares insights that could undoubtedly change the direction of a person’s life. When we die our money, fame, and honours will be meaningless. We are born with nothing, when we die nothing belongs to us at the moment of death.
    We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one can save our souls. Life is short, we think we have time , but actually every minutes counts we should prepare ourselves and spend our time wisely. To me choosing to learn, practice Dharma is the best choice and I am fortunate to have met Rinpoche this life time. Life our life meaningfully and be happy .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    crucial question – what will matter at death?

  3. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Dec 14, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    As we grow and gone through things in life, we tend to be more afraid of the unknown and uncommon. We ought to try to be the same as others so that we think that we would not be left out, but oppositely we feel even more alone as we aged and die eventually cause we are not being true to ourselves. The most important element that we lacks as we aged is the courage to overcome fear of the unknown, and the fear of being different.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

    It is very true that only at our point of death we will regret some of the things that we have done in our lives. At times like this it is always too late to do anything. But, if we are able to understand ourselves better, and act in the way we want, thinking about the consequences, I believe that we will all live in a happier way. This is because, if we do not voice out our thoughts, others will not know what are we thinking about. Only when we do voice out, they will know what we want, and how we want our lives to be like.

  5. James Long on Nov 11, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    为什么要等到死前才来后悔?我们都会死,这个已经不是只有年长的人才会遇见的,大家在死亡的面前,都是平等的。
    每晚的忏悔回想是很重要的,了解自己今天如何能做得更好,是不是一些情况,或者对一个人的态度能够改善,或许用不同的方式处理,事情会不会好一些。不要等到死前,我们甚至都不知道会不会有那样的机会后悔。

  6. Koh Hee Peng on Jul 11, 2012 at 12:15 am

    The regret of the once rich and famous person is best described in the song “Hurt” – Nine Inch Nails song covered by Johnny Cash. The music video can be watched via
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmVAWKfJ4Go
    [In July 2011, the music video was named one of “The 30 All-TIME Best Music Videos” by Time.]

    The lyric of the song is as follows:

    I hurt myself today,
    To see if I still feel,
    I focus on the pain,
    The only thing that’s real,

    The needle tears a hole,
    The old familiar sting,
    Try to kill it all away,
    But I remember everything,

    [Chorus]
    What have I become,
    My sweetest friend,
    Everyone I know,
    Goes away in the end,

    And you could have it all,
    My empire of dirt,
    I will let you down,
    I will make you hurt,

    I wear this crown of thorns,
    Upon my liars chair,
    Full of broken thoughts,
    I cannot repair,

    Beneath the stains of time,
    The feelings disappear,
    You are someone else,
    I am still right here,

    [Chorus]

    And you could have it all,
    My empire of dirt,
    I will let you down,
    I will make you hurt,

    If I could start again,
    A million miles away,
    I will keep myself,
    I would find a way,

    Note: John R. “Johnny” Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor,[2] and author,[2] who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.[3] Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Cash]

    This is such an important point about life.
    Often it is on our death bed that we begin to realize all the things we wish we accomplished and didn’t, we realize how ridiculous and futile our concerns and worries were in our daily survival and how little we did our real work, live happy and really care for others.
    Die before we die!
    To live with the perspective of death daily is very beneficial and to use the tools Rinpoche gave us like the meditation on death can really help us to have a quality life and good passage at the time of death! Thank you always!

  8. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 2, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    This is a great post. Its also inspiring to know many people do find peace before they leave.
    In the heat of emotions and anger we say many things to get back or hut the other person. But is what we got angry for worth it? Will we even remember what we were angry about at our death bed?
    Hence we should do the things that really matter and important to us when we are dying right?

  9. koh hee peng on Oct 26, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    No.1 and No.5 would be my deepest regret if I were to die today.

  10. Knut Eggers on Sep 27, 2010 at 1:37 am

    Y-E-S !!! 😀

  11. firefly on Sep 25, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    nice and beautiful picture… very calming…

    it feels to me just like life… we are like the waterfall falling down… it hits home sooner or later. may we all just go home peacefully and with much love and wisdom.

  12. Mimi Chua on Sep 23, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Relating to the above, I came across this in “Voice of Buddhism” June 2010 Page 12. Extract of the article.
    Do not become attached to loved ones or wealth, etc. This attachment will lead to lower realm(e.g. animal realm).
    In the storey book of the 33 Zen masters, there is a storey about one of the Zen masters who went out for alms, passing by a rich man’s house. The rich man was out, but inside came running out a dog that barked at him loudly. The Zen master looked at it and reproved.

    “How dare you bark at me, because of the attachment of wealth that you came back as a dog, shame of you!” After having heard the master reprimand, the dog became sad and refused to eat. Later, the rich man came back and reliased that his dog refused to eat; asked his servant the reason. The servant told that in the morning, there was a Zen master who passed by and said something to the dog & afterwards he refused to eat. The rich man was so upset that he went out to look for the Zen master.

    He queried: What did you say to my dog that made him sad & refused to eat?

    Master replied: Please do not get angry at me. The dog is your father. The rich man got even angrier and asked – Why is the dog my father?

    The master said: If you do not believe me, go home & see if the dog is lying under your father’s bed. Right where the dog is dying, you dig up and will find a bowl of gold. When your father passed away, he did not get a chance to tell you the secret, so he came back as a dog to guard it. Just go home & dig it up and you will understand.

    This rich man immediately went back home, dug under his father’s bed and found the bowl of gold. Afterwards, he ran back to the master and asked the master to help his father. The master convinced the rich man to use that gold for charity work. The rich man obeyed the master and few days later the dog died.

    It is because of wealth attachment that the man came back as a dog to guard his property.

  13. Shirley Tan on Sep 23, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Sometimes we believe that we always have time and there will always be a tomorrow waiting for us to do the things we really want to do.

    It seems only when our time is coming to an end, then we will make a certain realization about what is truly important in our life. It is ironic. Because when we do have the luxury of time at our disposal, we squander it away on things that will not benefit us in the long run.

    Then, there is the other group of people who think that they are invincible and they will not get sick or their time would not come so soon.

    It is strange but I find that it is always the dying who has to teach the living how to live.

    Hence, it is no longer really morbid for someone to urge us to think about death and do death meditation then. Until we realise how we can all easily die at another time, any day, any moment, then perhaps we would start doing what’s truly important for ourselves and the people we love.

    Rinpoche has said many times, even if we are ready to do all the things we should be doing, those we love may not be around when we are ready. We do not know when their time would come to an end as well. No one does.

    Now I truly appreciate Rinpoche’s teachings on Death Meditation even more. I do not want to wait until it is too late for me, or for those I love and care about. Most of all, I do not want to hold any regrets.

    Dear Rinpoche

    I am at lost at what to say when reading this blog. It is so relevant to me at many levels. Thank you very much. I will try my best to use my time most fruitfully.

    Much love

  16. sim k.y on Sep 23, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Thank you rinpoche for the excellent post.It remind us how fragile we are.
    “I wish i’ve had the courage to live a true of myself..”. This is so true when most of us already ‘lost’ own identity/character in the midst to pursue outer attainments which can’t bring eternal happiness to us.We are usually motivated by courage,praises,fame in order to be excellent.
    However,when things gone wrong,depression,hatred and all sort of negative thoughts arose which eventually lead us to feel regret.Most importantly.we should regret for not fully utilize our perfect body/health in this life to benefits others by doing dharma.As a consequence for not remembering death,we will fall in the cyclic existance for many lifes.
    Again,it’s our choice to live in the way we assign it to be.If we choose to live in happier manner,we should eradicate self-centric mind and put OTHERS as priority.We should turn away from desires because if we manage to do so,we are actually establish the beginning of happiness and pleasure feel.”Not being attached to gain is the greatest gain”.It can explain and applied in our daily lifestyle.
    When is the best time to chance?If not now,but when?Thank you for rinpoche precious teaching and guidance.

      Happiness is a choice and we can have it if we put in the effort to get out of our old patterns and habits before its too late. We must never be afraid to change and must always work hard to fulfill our goals in life.

    Tsem Tulku Rimpoche,
    thanks, nice & well said.

    Best Regards

  18. Angelo on Sep 22, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    I liked this post and i put here an italian translation for italian readers. If i have made any mistakes please anyone feel free to correct it.

    Per molti anni ho lavorato con le cure palliative.
    I miei pazienti sono quelli che tornano a casa a morire.
    Abiamo condiviso alcuni momenti incredibili.
    Rimasi con loro per le loro ultime (da 3 a 12) settimane di vita.
    Le persone crescono molto quando si trovano faccia a faccia con la loro mortalità. Ho imparato a non sottovalutare mai la capacità di crescere di qualcuno. Alcuni cambiamenti furono fenomenali. Ognuno sperimentò una varietà di emozioni, come ci si aspettava, negazione, paura, rabbia, rimorso, maggior negazione e finalmente accettazione. Ogni singolo paziente trovò la propria pace prima della dipartita, ognuno di loro.
    Qundo interrogati riguardo rimpianti o cose che avrebbero voluto fare diversamente, affiorarono ripetutamente temi comuni.
    Ecco i cinque più frequenti:

    1. Avrei voluto avere il coraggo di vivere la mia vita, non quella che gli altri si aspettavano da me.
    Questo era il dispiacere più comune di tutti. Quando le persone capiscono che la loro vita è quasi finita e guardano ad essa con chiarezza, è facile comprendere quanti desideri siano rimasti inappagati. La maggior parte delle persone non ha onorato neppure la metà dei sogni che aveva e deve morire sapendo che è dipeso dalle scelte fatte o non fatte.
    E’ molto importante provare ad onorare almeno alcuni dei sogni lungo il percorso. Dal momento in cui perdi la salute è troppo tardi.
    La salute consente una libertà che pochissimi realizzano, fin quando non l’hanno più.

    2. Mi sarebbe piaciuto non lavorare così duramente
    Questo arriva da ogni paziente maschio che ho assistito. Hanno perso il tempo della crescita dei loro figli e la compagnia del partner. Anche le donne hanno questo dispiacere. Ma siccome la maggiorparte erano di vecchia generazione molte donne non erano state capofamiglia. Tutti gli uomini che ho assistito erano profondamente dispiaciuti di aver sprecato molto tempo della loro esistenza sul tapis roulant di una vita di lavoro.
    Semplificando lo stile di vita e prendendo decisioni consapevoli lungo il percorso è possibile non necessitre del reddito di cui si pensa di aver bisogno. E creando più spazio nella tua vita diventi più felice e più aperto a nuove opportunità, quelle più adatte al tuo nuovo stile di vita.

    3. Avrei voluto avere il coraggio di esprimere i miei sentimenti.
    Molte persone hanno represso i loro sentimenti per s restare in pace con gli altri. Come risultato hanno stabilito un’esistenza mediocre e non sono mai divenuti coloro che sarebbero potuti diventare. Molte malattie sviluppate sono in relazione all’amarezza ed al risentimento trattenuto.
    Non possiamo controllare le reazioni degli altri. Tuttavia, benchè le persone possano inizialmente reagire quando midifichi il tuo modo di essere parlando onestamente, alla fine si innalza la relazione ad un nuovo e salutare livello.
    Oppue termina il rapporto malsano nella tua vita. In ogni caso vinci.

    4. Vorrei essere rimasto in contatto con i miei amici
    Spesso non avrebbero voluto realmente realizzare il beneficio di riincontrare i vecchi amici fino alla settimana prima di morire e non è stato sempre possibile rintracciarli. Molti erano così pienmente coinvoltinelle loro vite da essersi lasciati scappare amicizie d’oro negli anni. Ci sono stati molti profondi dispiaceri di non aver dedicato all’amicizia lo sforzo necessario. A tutti mancano gli amici quando si muore.
    E’ comune per tutti coloro in uno stile di vita occupato trascurare le amicizie. Ma quando si deve affrontare la prossima dipartita tutti i dettagli fisici svaniscono. Soldi o stato sociale non hanno più importanza. Vogliono fare le cose in modo da beneficiare coloro che amano. Ma di solito sono troppo malati o stanchi per riuscire a gestire le cose. Alla fine tutto si riduce all’amore e alle relazioni. Questo è tutto quello che rimane alla fine.

    5. Avrei voluto essere più felice
    E’ un dispiacere sorprendentemente comune. Molti non capiscono fino alal fine che la felicità è una scelta. Erano rimasti bloccati in vecchi schemi o abitudini. Il cosiddetto confort di familiarità era straripato nelle loro emozioni così comne la loro vita fisica. La loro paura di cambiare li aveva portati a pensare per se stessi e per gli altri di essere contenti.
    Quando si è nel letto di morte ciò che gli altri pensano attraversa la mente. Che meraviglia lasciarsi andare dinuovo al sorriso molto prima che qeusto accada

    La vita è una scelta. E’ la TUA vita. Scegli coscientemente, scegli saggiamente, scegli onestamente. Scegli la felicità.

    • Shirley Tan on Sep 23, 2010 at 3:46 pm

      Wow, thank you so much, Angelo! Thank you for caring to take the time to translate for all Rinpoche’s Italian readers. This in itself already benefits many people.

  19. benji on Sep 22, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche, for sharing such a MEANINGFUL article. i should really keep it as a powerful REMINDER; when i am drunken with samsara’s intoxicants, this could serve as an effective means to revive me!

  20. patsy on Sep 22, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    “Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness”

    Given this opportunity we should not be stuck in old patterns and habits due to our strong imprints but to change and get out of it before it’s too late. Never let fear put us down with whatever we want to do in our lives.

  21. Sean Wang on Sep 22, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing that with us. I will keep on pursuing happiness because I do not want live a wasted life and die unhappy. That would be the worst thing that could ever happen. I must also have courage in life and that is what I will do. Once again, Thank you Rinpoche.

  22. Knut Eggers on Sep 22, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    This is HIGHLY intereting. Everyone in the world should read THESE principles and have it constantly hanging in their homes or even near their altar. Thank you very much for posting this,
    dear Tsem Tulku Rimpoche!

  23. Anila on Sep 22, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    What the author of this article have said and show us through the interview with his patients. This is what Rinpoche is trying very hard to change our mindstream and prepare us for the day. He cares for us so much and worries that if we do not have a good and happy and relax life before our death. According to Buddhism we can go to the lower realm. The last breath that we breath is very crucial before we die. One will be so lucky to be able to prepare oneself before they die. Preparation will have to come when you are healthy and strong. Mind will have to play a great part in this. If you want to die without any regrets you have to start and practice virtues and not vice long before you get sick or be incapable. This is what Rinpoche is also teaching us to do. But there are people who do not realise the importance of this that Rinpoche is trying to impart to us.

  24. Sharon Saw on Sep 22, 2010 at 11:38 am

    It’s so sad when people have regrets only when they are about to die and it’s too late and they can’t do anything about it. I find no. 1 and 5 particularly poignant. No. 1 because sometimes we don’t even know what our dreams are and we try to do the ‘right’ thing by what others think and we lose ourselves in the process. Although in order to lose ourselves, do we even know who we really are? Perhaps, there is no ‘I’ in it after all anyway, and since the whole point of Dharma is to focus out, maybe the point IS to lose ourselves to benefit others. Interesting.

    No. 5 is so true. Happiness is a choice – although someone told me happiness is overrated. Every single sentient being seeks happiness. No one consciously seeks sadness. However, it goes back to No.1 – are we who we portray ourselves to be? Are we real? Rinpoche always asks us this question – are you real? Will you change yourself to be the best that you can be? When we do our best, and when we are true to ourselves, we will automatically be happier. Work in progress.

    • Shirley Tan on Sep 23, 2010 at 3:47 pm

      What you wrote is so true, Sharon. I was just thinking about the same thing.

      Why do people always wait until it is too late? Why do they only realise when their time has ran out?

  25. Diana Pereyda on Sep 22, 2010 at 11:11 am

    yes this is very good for the young , i think they have a chance to really embrace this, and time and room to work it out. Before you can miss friends , you have to make some. they have to learn to make commitment and be loyal . then there will be someone there to the end!

  26. Sandy Clarke on Sep 22, 2010 at 7:56 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I find it so sad that people (myself included) spend their time trying to be who they THINK they should be according to others’ standards, or spend their time hiding their true nature for fear of not meeting the approval of others.
    We’re all so hung up on living life that projects an “image” to satisfy everyone else and the irony of this is that living in such a way – not being true to ourselves – seems to be to the detriment of ourselves and those around us.
    It’s such a shame that a lot of us need to wait until we’re lying in our death beds before we realise our full potential and what we could have been. Of course by then, it’s too late.
    If I may, I’d like to recommend that anyone who hasn’t seen Rinpoche’s teaching on the meditation on deat, watch it as soon as possible – it is such a profound and potent teaching and as a result of watching and actually doing the practice, I can say that it has such an effect on one’s outlook and really drives it home that we don’t have forever to to Dharma work, to be kind, compassionate, loving: one day, we won’t have tomorrow.

    The video is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4j5RJfu5X0

    May I also humbly offer a recent article I had published on line, which I think ties in with this subject. Anyone who would like to read it can view it here: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2010/09/trying-to-own-time-sandy-clarke/

    Thank you, once again, dear Rinpoche, for sharing such a valuable post.

    Kindest regards,
    Sandy

    A sacred pilgrimage site for 22 centuries, this Dambulla cave is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla is a World Heritage Site in 1991. King Valagamba of Anuradhapura in the first century built a temple in thankful worship. Located in central Sri Lanka, the Dambulla Cave Temple is a living Buddhist site that is focused on a series of five cave shrines.The place is worth a visit though, just for the stunning sculptures and paintings in this historical paradise. The site is remarkable in the Buddhist world with the continuous tradition of living Buddhist ritual practices and pilgrimage for more than two millennia. That’s interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    As prophesies by Shakyamuni Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa is an emanation of the Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, and saint who lived in Tibet. His practice will instill deep wisdom and confers great blessing upon us. His pure teachings and activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. With the establishment of the Gelug monastery which survives to this day. Lama Tsongkhapa, considered one of the greatest Buddhist masters and philosophers of all time. There many benefits that arise from Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Merely by reciting Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra known as Migtsema mantra. is indeed very beneficial for everyone of us. We are so fortunate to learn and practices from our Guru.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great Master.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition centuries ago and only later widely practised in Gelugpa tradition. All these was stated by H.H Trijang Rinpoche in his work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. The throne holder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya. The practice of this Dharma Protector was later passed to his son the 31st Sakya Trizin Kunga Lodro who was believed to be the emanation of Dorje Shugden himself. Interesting facts. He even composed a Dorje Shugden prayer or Kangsol to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden. The prayer has since been well known and it is used to this day. The 39th Sakya throneholder Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen who also practised Dorje Shugden and praised Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Not only one but three Sakya Trizins who relied on Dorje Shugden and they referred to him as an enlightened being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing so as more and more practitioners know the truth and only truth that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being

    The Legend of the Mermaid is well known and told with different forms and endings in all the oral tradition of peoples linked to the sea. It was rumored that the mermaid has a magical treasure. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Interesting read mermaids were natural beings who, like fairies, who had magical and prophetic powers. We usually see it as in movie whether it do really exists no one have really seen it nowadays. While there is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. They depicted in operas, paintings, books and live-action films.

    Trance is a state of semi-consciousness in which a person is not self-aware. The person is in a deep state of distraction by some inner turmoil or some outer mental influence. Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. Listening the video tells us more about trance. Interesting to know, but we should not get involve in trances as advice. Its better get involve in Dharma practice and have our mind transform.

    Observe good faith and justice toward everyone nor matter what religion and faith, regardless of race and religion creates peace and harmony . Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance. Living our lives selflessly, treating others with respect, sharing the extra that comes to us with others who have been short-changed.
    Reading our Guru’s tweets tells us a thousand words, on cultivating harmony ,understanding and acceptance in our daily life.
    May Rinpoche’s wisdom inspire us all to contribute to a better world

    Interesting read of a great Tibetan spiritual leader, Buddhist scholar and the fourth of the Five Sakya Forefathers. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen founded the Sakya school and one of Tibet’s most learned sages in Tibet, India, Mongolia and China. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen have been an emanation of Manjusri, the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddha. Wow…… proficient in the five great sciences of Buddhist philosophy, medicine, grammar, dialectics and sacred Sanskrit literature.
    He was even talented in minor sciences of rhetoric, synonymies, poetry, music, dancing and astrology. Sakya Paṇḍita was a religious hierarch by birth. Sakya Pandita experienced an extraordinary teaching in his dreams and had many clairvoyant and clear dreams.
    Interesting read of the biography of a great Lama’s spiritual journey.

    Studies show that light pollution is also impacting animal behaviours, such as migration patterns, wake-sleep habits, and habitat formation. Noise is a source of stress. It triggers reactions in the body, light pollution can alter behaviours, sound and light affect the environment and also our daily lives. With their expertise, a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, did an enlightening experiment to determine where the surrounding environment having negatives energy. All through the colour generated in the sparks which confirms the presence of supernatural beings.I do believe those unseen beings do exist.

    Back in the 20th century Jawaharlal Nehru an Indian anti-colonial nationalist, statesman, secular humanist, social democrat was very kind to receive them both. Looking at the rare pictures says all.
    Its such awesome watching the rare video of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche visiting India together. Visiting sacred places Buddhist sites of India together, and even having state dinner .

    nspiring read of the power sacred feminine Maha Pajapati Gotami, founder of the Order of Nuns. She was the foster-mother, step-mother and maternal aunt of the Buddha. In Buddhist tradition, she was the first woman to seek ordination for women, which she did from Gautama Buddha directly, and she became the first bhikkhuni.
    Mahapajapati lived to be around 120 years old. Having such an eminent position in the sangha, she would have had hundreds of nuns under her care, helping them realize the Truth. Perplexingly, the Buddha continued to have doubts about admitting women into the women’s order right up until his death. Mahapajapati had played an important role preserving the dharma taught by Buddha Shakyamuni.
    Truly inspired by Mahaprajapati Gotami’s story.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story. One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    7 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
