For Couples

Nov 29, 2012 | Views: 1,116

Most couples just make money, eat, have kids, buy house, car, go on trips, then get old, die and have fear of the next place they are going to. Many have much regrets, but then it’s too late… Very rarely do couples and partners work side by side to do GOOD WORKS FOR OTHERS. Very rare but when it does happen it’s beautiful that both couples work in dharma together to benefit others. When they do that, they push each other to higher and higher states of mind through their dharma work. It’s like a prayer they did in a previous life to be together to do good for others. Then if that is the case, it is good for a couple to be together and then they help each other to do good things.

A couple like this is a big inspiration and set a very good trend. I wish more and more Kecharians do this to show the world a new way to have and enjoy a relationship. A spiritual relationship where couples encourage each other toward dharma works and benefit others. It’s rare two people do not drag each other down deeper into samsara with all the ‘commitments’ they entangle themselves into due to attachments masked as needs. It’s wonderful to see two people encourage each other out of samsara by being with each other.

    “Most couples just make money, eat, have kids, buy house, car, go on trips, then get old, die and have fear of the next place they are going to. Many have much regrets, but then it’s too late..” With these opening words on a blogpost on “For Couple”, Rinpoche is stating how society and the conventions ‘force ‘ people into tying the knot ‘. Getting married is to feed each other’ s attachment to samsara.Most people don’t know how to grow old together gracefully surrendering their youths. They watch each other fall sick, and become incapacitated, grow weak and lose their faculties and the use of their limbs. Thye helplessly watch and grow bitter and depressed.

    All their lives, it’s been merely gratifying their five senses’ dictates.It’s been always about themselves and their needs , and seldom, if ever, about others and their needs.. Regrets at a wasted life come too late, and fear sets in about death and where they will be going.
    On the other hand, some , who have the precious opportunity of becoming engaged in benefiting others through charitable causes or through the Dharma , find a sense of fulfilment never experienced before.

    Unfortunately, not many share this joy of working to benefit others , with their partners. If not sufficiently strong and filled with conviction for what they are doing, many may get dragged down by their partners deeper and deeper into samsara by their strong clinging to samsaric pursuits , and in the end , they may be forced to give up their commitments to social or dharma work to benefit others.

    Hence,I rejoice for the couples who are currently working
    together with their partners and spouses to benefit others with single-minded focus, in Kechara.

  2. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 15, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for this teaching on how Dharma can help couples use their relationship to benefit others. When two people work together to benefit others, in Dharma, with one heart and one mind, and they focus outwards to help and serve others, then they bring each other to higher and higher states of mind . In the end, they are helping and encouraging each other “out of samsara by being with each other”.

    Otherwise, like most other couples, it’s making money, eating, having kids, buying houses, cars, going on trips, then getting old, dying and having fears about the next places they are going to.Many will have much regrets, but it will be too late then.

  3. Cliff on Oct 24, 2013 at 1:52 am

    I really like this teaching and I do agree with what Rinpoche is trying to tell us. Many couples just work, eat sleep, etc continuously until the day they die and usually all their problems and fights come due to attachments to samsaric possessions. I agree when two people get together it is good that they help each other to do good work in benefiting others. In turn this not only helps them in their future lives but also their current.

  4. VInnie Tan on Sep 18, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    I agree with what is being said here Rinpoche. I believe that if the couple really meant well for their partners, they would be be encouraging them to do something meaningful in life. Instead to be dragging them into something that would do them no good at the end of their lives.

  5. Adrian Cho on Jul 30, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a wonderful teaching. It was very good, if two couple work together in Dharma work and it will be very meaningful of their life.

  6. Lim Han Nee on May 13, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    For the greater part, people come together in partnership out of a desire to have someone there for them at all times. This in itself bespeaks a self-serving motivation. Hence, I feel that couples or partners who enthusiastically share a commitment to work in Dharma, to benefit others, must have, in a previous life, created the rare karmic cause to come together in such a lovely way.

    Hence, one has to accept that, mostly, one is alone doing Dharma work without the support of a partner. The challenge here is to maintain a harmonious relationship always with one’s partner(without compromising one’s commitment to Dharma), even though he/she does not understand the Dharma and is not willing to even learn about it. We continue meanwhile to create the cause for him/her to connect to the Dharma in the future.

    Dharma relationships are powerful when two people share the same spiritual journey. When we share the same spiritual journey, we can help to support each other as we work on improving ourselves according to the Dharma – to have better qualities like generosity, kindness, patience. It is not that two people of different faiths cannot get along but two sincere practitioners of faith – whatever faith it is – are actually on their way to the same destination, albeit different paths.

  8. Lanse on Jan 1, 2013 at 4:52 am

    A Dharma relationship, in most cases, will help us move further and faster in our Dharma path compares to Dharma-secular relationship.

    I guess the main reasons are we understand each other more, how they feel, what situation they are facing, at what stage their mind is…etc, hence we know how to help them pulling through the challenges.

    We all have our bad moment, it may due to our wrong thinking, our bad coping skill, our stress level…etc. However, not everyone will face the same situation at the same time. So, when one person is feeling down, the other one will drag him/her up and vice versa. This is like a relay race. One may be able to go further and sustain longer as there is always a supporting factor, but of course this is only applicable if his/her partner truly understand the benefit of Dharma.

    Whereas in a Dharma-secular relationship, there is no or less support system. A person not only need to face the challenges him/herself, he/she may even need to counter the pressure given by his/her partner. And when he/she is trying to give up, the partner may sometimes become the catalyst.

    I hope to see more and more Dharma couple working together in achieving something really beneficial to their lives.

  9. Carmen Lin on Dec 28, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    It is indeed rare to find couple that have the same mindset, have the same compassionate heart to live for the sake of others, to share the same goal of benefiting others, to share the same idea that serving a guru tirelessly is a rare opportunity that can be found nowhere. These couple that have the same goal and mind are like good examples and motivation that we should always be inspired by them.

    This kind of spiritual relationship are admirable by anyone that are single or in a non spiritual relationship.Though it’s always rejoicing to see people regardless young or old, sick or healthy, poor or wealthy, to pursue in Dharma path with the pure motivation of benefiting others. What’s new in samasara? Nothing. It’s all the same old stuff that keep on endlessly leading us sinking deeper and deeper. So why not do something different for once, which we can change our destiny, that is to work in Dharma with pure motivation.

    Always encourage people whether they are your friend or not, always encourage them to do good deeds and never harm others. Always remind ourselves not to be driven by our ego,anger and ignorance, since it’ll lead us to nowhere.

    Good luck to couples that are doing Dharma work, never give up on this path; Else there’s nowhere to turn to. When one is about to give up, pull them back up. Just like what Rinpoche had said “It’s wonderful to see two people encourage each other out of samsara by being with each other”

    Thank you with folded hands.

    A society grows through a network of relationships, which are mutually intertwined and inter-dependant. Every relationship is a whole-hearted commitment to support and protect each other in a group or community. A good partnership such as a marriage should grow and develop gradually from understanding and not impulse. A good marriage provides a fine basis for the development of culture, a delightful association of two individuals to be nutured and to be free from loneliness, deprivation and fear. Each partner develops a complimentary role, giving strength and moral courage to each other. Marriage should be a partnership of equality, gentleness, generosity, calm and dedication. In Buddhism, one can not only find all the neccessary advice which help one another to lead a happy married life, but out of samsara too,if one follows purely and closely to the practice, like Rinpoche said.

  11. Joy on Dec 19, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Yes indeed it is very rare to find both “equally yolk”. I did not understand what on earth this meant when I heard this from a Christian friend in the past as she was saying if she cannot find someone of the same faith to be married with, she won’t accept. At that time I thought she’s fanatical! Now I get it and I’m the fanatic one they’re saying now.

    But it is true… Now a days people get in to relationships to fulfill their own desire hence the rise is divorcees and marriage is just another event to get together and throw a big party to make the parents “happy”.

    Honestly what is the point of having any relationship if is going to be more misery, more pain, more negative then positive actions. And no partner should ever stop or stand in each others spiritual path or growth… if it is “love”.

    But if is a spiritual one, definitely it can be a very admirable, an inspiration to one another where both will encourage each others’ good qualities to arise to higher level. That would be a real blessing for both.

  12. Lucas Roth on Dec 14, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    this is true… a Dharma relationships is better because they help each other to get more in the Dharma. this even benefits others. : D

  13. Wah Ying on Dec 14, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    To have a partner that not oppose you to do Dharma work, even not support is lucky level 1. Hehe. To have a partner to not oppose but support some more, is lucky level 2, even is not enough, haha. To have a partner really go hand in hand and inspire each other to benefit others will be lucky level 3.

    To have a family and kids and do Dharma is really not easy, but I guess nothing easy in this samsara world. To have someone you love actually it can be the factor that you wish to move up up up, to push yourself harder, initially, because you do not want your loved ones down down by not doing dharma, not learning dharma.

    And I guess the lucky levels actually is workable from our side, if we wish to benefit our loved ones.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your advice and care.

    With folded hands,
    Wah Ying

    I feel that we will run into certain types of people during certain periods of our lives. When we look around, many kids nowadays are so into Ipad, Iphone and many endless computer games that worry me. Not many kids are drawn to spirituality naturally. Some of them have the chance, but it is not running on the same frequency, so they dismiss it.

    It is certainly nice to have friends who are into spirituality, into the same kind of belief system. It is like a blessings. We can talk endless and the time spent together seems insufficient always.

    Couples who share the same kind of belief is a blessing truly.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 5, 2012 at 1:16 am

    Yes it is important to DHARMA all the way no matter we are in a relationship or otherwise.
    Relationships only last this life time but our future lives is countless we need to invest our time wisely.

  16. Lim (KH JB) on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Eat, sleep, earn then pay become our routine daily work, this routine only will end when we ADD 3 Years Old. We should take some time to deep contemplate, what can bring to our next life after whole life routine??

    Thanks for Rinpoche teaching to let me know that the true life after we ADD 3 YEARS OLD… May our family members and peoples around us can serve more in Dharma…

  17. grace (KHJB) on Dec 3, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    I agreed that it was fortunate to have a partner who share the same religious, doing Dharma work together. we have same goal, motivation and teaching from same Guru, it can built up trust and confidence on the partner as we know what they are doing.

  18. wei theng on Dec 2, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching and grateful that I was given an opportunity to do Dharma work together with Lew. I will always keep Rinpoche’s teachings in mind to support him and all others in their spiritual journey. It may not be easy but it is not as difficult as I thought earlier. When I understand how beneficial the work that Dharma work is and how much it can help others, it is easier for me to let go of my own pleasure. However, I found greater pleasure when I see how others become happier when we help others. I am also very thankful for having someone to support me in my work too.
    I wish Rinpoche long life and both of us can serve Rinpoche life after life for the benefit of others.

  19. Albert Ratchaga on Dec 2, 2012 at 7:59 am

    People often get into a relationship is due to the fear of no one accompanying them when they gets old, they went into marriage and have kids is because they wanted someone to look after them when they gets old, as such, the action and attitude is all towards ourselves, we wanted a relationship is not because we can help each other, but it is to fulfill our selfish desire, so when things go wrong in a relationship, we became depressed, anger, etc. Because it is all for ourselves.

    It is very ideal to have spiritual partners, both together is not based on sexuality but it’s on helping each other, attacking each other’s weak point and together gether grow from there.

    Finding partners also cannot be fear of feeling lonely, because loneliness is not from the outer but it is from within ourselves, so even after we got a partner which supposedly to kill off our loneliness, instead, we got more annoyance, headache, etc.

  20. abby f on Dec 1, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    It really sounds ‘crazy’ that you ask your partner to do more for others, spend more time for others, think more for others. To me, this is the real challenge. But this challenge, is to evaluate yourself, how much you love your partner when you know the reason behind all the hard work. You know it is for good, all the hard works and time your partner gives to others is for good, as your partner gives Dharma, love and care. We should never stop our loved ones to do something beneficial for others out of our attachment and selfishness.

    I agree with Rinpoche very much, that we are actually lucky to work together for others. And this relationship itself has the greater meaning and direction. If the couple only think for themselves, from there arises many problems because both of them only think for themselves. And eventually they will get bored and want more without an end. Relationship that is empty without a greater direction and meaning is very scary to me. I’m grateful that I have Rinpoche’s guidance in this case. I have a new perception towards relationship and relationship become something beautiful and not just about me me me.

    With a greater direction, the couple could stick together even longer. They will appreciate each other even more because they understand how hard to find each other. 🙂

  21. tenzin llhamo on Dec 1, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a wonderful teaching! I am very grateful to have a partner who supports me in my Dharma work in every way. He supports me in so many ways be it spiritually or materialistically. I am very grateful to have him. I believe what Rinpoche said is true… It’s like a prayer they did in a previous life to be together to do good for others.

  22. Louise Lee on Nov 30, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    克切拉佛教中心, 有许多在佛法事业的情侣。因为大家都在同一个环境里工作,相处的时间就多了, 那么吵架的机会可能就会多了。 但是,我们会更加坚固! 因为在这个环境里, 让我们有一个平静的思维,去解决问题,让我们可以平心静气地互相了解。

    可以与伴侣一起做佛法事业是一种加持! Kechara 现在在建庙, 我们可以一起把庙建起来, 绝对是我们生生世世的功德!

  23. James Long on Nov 30, 2012 at 3:20 am

    很多人以为我在佛教机构工作,就好像出家爱,什么都不可以。其实有伴侣是可以的。但如果另一半也是同样在从事佛法事业,那么是非常难得的。大家至少会将佛法融入在生活中,互相鼓励。当然双方必须要有共识。一般的情侣,都会注重在自己的需要,自己的感觉,我受伤,我不开心,所以分歧越来越大。将自己放下接纳大家的不足,互相鼓励对方成长,毕竟大家都不是完美的。

  24. Martin on Nov 30, 2012 at 12:32 am

    To begin with, it is not easy to find a good partner (some people call it a soulmate) and it is even more difficult to find a partner who does not drag us deeper into our delusions or indeed into theirs such that both end up mindlessly chasing after illusions. So if we find ourselves in a Dharma relationship, we can count all our lucky stars.There are so many people, who in a relationship have given up responsibility over their own lives and instead thrown the onus to their partner to make them happy or create conditions for them to feel secure and contented. In the end, the relationship ends in failure and the couple break up feeling bitter and twisted or depressed.

    The basis of a Dharma couple is not mutual delusion but the mutual understanding and appreciation that each is no longer living his or her live to chase after personal desires but have given up themselves in service of others and in that we celebrate.

    Couples swear endless love to each other but if the love is true, then the professed love plus even some knowledge of Dharma means that, each has a duty to make sure that the other is not dragged away from their Dharma work. After all, how can we claim to love someone and yet want them to go to the lower realms by abandoning the Dharma.

    • Li Kim on Dec 1, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      Dear Martin,
      What you have shared here resonates with me deeply. Personally, relationships have caused me much delusions on what is important and more sadly, wrong views of what makes me happy. I used to believe in soul mates but unfortunately the “soul mates” I have encountered were more pain to the soul than anything. At times they have left me lost of who I am.

      At the end of that all, I have found happiness in myself and in the Dharma. The friends I have in the dharma have on many occasions proven to be stronger and more dependable than my old time friends. I am not unhappy about this but simply I understand that the platform of thoughts between myself and them have changed.

      Spiritual relationships, which one day I wish to achieve in the future, is one which I feel is beneficial because it is free of selfishness. We all know that all relationships suffer because of the element of selfishness. Wanting the other to make us happy…duh!

      • Paris on Jan 11, 2013 at 4:37 pm

        @Martin and Li Kim, I like what both of you have said here (and how aptly strange that the three of us (of all people) find ourselves in a conversation here about this). This is a bit of a “strange” place to find yourself in – to know that you are in a relationship where you are NOT the priority and actually shouldn’t expect to be. Paradoxically, you learn to love the person precisely because you know how much love they have for the whole world, not just for you.

        I have lived through a lot of my relationships fearing that I would lose the person – so whatever happiness there is is met with equal parts of fear, anxiety, insecurity. What an unhappy and terrible way to live. Ultimately, as you say, it’s defined by that element of selfishness – we want that person for ourselves so of course we fear losing it.

        Rinpoche shared recently that the funny thing about the way this works is that when we let go of the person – and live accordingly – we actually gain that person’s trust, love, respect all the more. It’s funny that the more we cling on to a person and can’t let him/her go, the more we eventually drive them away. So the converse is also true. The more we are able to let go, to focus not just on one person but on developing true love and real benefit equally for the rest of the world, the more that one person would actually want to be with us. In turn, they will be the ones to not want to lose us. There’s an Indian saying that you can’t hold water by clenching your fist; but by keeping two palms cupped but OPEN, you are able to retain and enjoy the water. I thought that was quite a beautiful way of describing relationships too <3

  25. tfreon on Nov 29, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for the guidance. Yes, i wish my partner and me can be in Dharma life after life. If i fall down, he able to guide me, when he fall down i am able to pull him and we can benefit more people.
    Sometimes, attachment to other arise due to selfishness. Selfishness to fulfill our own desire without thinking or considering to that his or her welfare is more important than our feeling.
    Without guidance from Rinpoche, I am still having lots of wrong views on relationship. May my partner and i always improve in Dharma.

    Thank you

    With Folded Hand
    Freon

    • sweekeong on Nov 30, 2012 at 12:27 am

      Freon, together with your partner, both of you are inspirational to others, to help each other. If being together benefits more people then both of you will be always together, and forever. 🙂 There are many good examples here especially those with families I am happy they are all in Dharma together, a much much happier family, everyone is in it together, learning and growing.

  26. Serena^^ on Nov 29, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Thanks to Rinpoche’s teaching. It’s not easy to get a soulmate that actually enjoy doing dharma work together to benefit others. But if do have one, both will be able to show a good example to other couples and help those that having difficulties in relationships. 🙂

    • sweekeong on Nov 30, 2012 at 3:08 am

      Nice to hear your thoughts on these as relationships are everywhere we can see. Being in relationship can be beautiful and also difficult in the sense we can put up with the other person’s faults which we don’t like and some hope he or she will change his or her behavior to the better. For the sake of the other person some will change. It works both way.

      To support another couples’ relationship when they are going thru hard times will create the condition for us to have a harmonious and happy relationship ourselves in our future. It benefits them and us, it is a win win situation. If we believe a joyous and a healthy relationship will bring happiness to relationship then therefore we can be happy and feel inspired when a couple do Dharma work together. It breaks the idea that we cannot have both.

      Also we can learn very much from our parents as they are in a relationship as well. We can be supportive and encourage them to be better for each other. How? By being more patient, listen to them, not taking sides and more. In making their relationship becoming healthier and more balance we create the condition to have a good relationship as well.

    In general jealousy seems to be bad for any relationships. It’s a feeling of resentment against someone, feeling of insecurity and conflict. It’s human nature. It’s natural to feel jealous from time to time. Well it becomes problematic when we act out in jealousy. Everything happen for a reason, some people have been doing well , wealthy and some do not , all these are our past karma. We should not feel jealous but rejoice for them. We should try self-confidence letting go the situation. Jealousy can be harmful as it will hijack our mind, ruin our relationships, destroy our family, and some extreme cases such stealing or killing as well . At times jealousy becomes lethal, as do domestic fights, and ends up killing others or themselves.
    To avoid jealousy we should accept and begin to appreciate who and what we are. Always rejoice to others and take them as an inspiration example. We should think less about ourselves, and more about others. Learning Dharma , practicing Dharma and putting into action , our jealousy will disappear. It’s the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    What a wonderful way going on a holy pilgrimage, and serving a Great Lama. Khensur Rinpoche who is a good friend of our Lama for 27 years. Rinpoche had known Khensur Rinpoche since Rinpoche time in India. Khensur Rinpoche had spent his whole life living in the monastic community teaching. Kensur Rinpoche had established Shar Gaden Monastery where the practice of Dorje Shugden and lineage is protected and preserved.
    Looking at all the pictures tells us a thousand words, how the team lead by Su Ming and team serving a Great Lama Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal. Such as taking them to see the doctor for medical check-up having all the necessary tests done, to see the dentist as well as checking their eyes and so forth . Well done Su Ming and team.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which will inspire us to go all the up serving monks.
    In a way to show , gratitude to them how we appreciate their present .

    Great and clear explanation for us to understand as well as to increase our knowledge of why bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our lives. Big statues have been always been regarded as big blessings for the area around it and also the sentient beings that live around that area.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat have many holy outdoor statue to create cause for people come to pilgrimage, embucirculate around the statue will help those have heavy body karma.Thank you very much for this article.

    Many countries around the world have looking and working with China. They realised being friendly with China is a wise choice for the benefits for the growth of their country. China has become world largest economy country. For Tibet befriending China in long term will benefits both countries. Time had changed with Tibet having workshops with the Chinese is a good sign improving their relationship after all these years . People have their right and freedom to choose what they practice. Practicing Dorje Shugden is nothing to do with China. Every one of us have the right and freedom to choose what we want to practice. HH Dalai Lama is looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be happen if the Tibetan leadership, letting go of the past and have more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government in future. And solving all the political problems and lifting Dorje Shugden’s ban once for all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    It is heart breaking, reading this article again, what Pastor Jean Ai had gone through and experience. Yet with strong determination all those abuses and attack by people whom she do not know, she did continue with her practice. Could not imagine how ungrateful the Tibetan Leadership treated the sponsor. Without the funds, sponsorship, monasteries and Dharma institutions would not able to survive for sure. Kechara organisation, and many others kind sponsors had sponsored millions to the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries of India. Not only that sponsoring of monk robes, books , statues , painting and jewelleries to name a few. Even changing the flooring of the monastery as well. Can imagine those sponsors go all the way to send them all those stuffs. And have raised so much sponsorship for them and had donated yearly in fact or when they asked for. And now none of them are allowed to go to the monasteries any more . All because they had practised Dorje Shugden’s practice. Countless other lamas and Shugden practitioners had raised funds for the monasteries too and they too were not allowed to have connection with. Sad ….there is no religious freedom at all. By now after decades , I do hope the Tibetan Leadership will lift the ban on Dorje Shugden for a better peaceful communities. May more read this post for a better understanding of what happening in the Tibetan Leadership and those in exile living in India.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up for the Tibetan people and for those Dorje Shugden practitioners .

    Different people have different reasons for wanting to become ordained. Sometimes I do wonder if unless the reasons are right, one should not get ordained but on the other hand I think maybe one should take the leap of faith even if the reasons are not entire “correct”.

    Modern people becoming ordained is tougher than in Buddha’s time, there are much inner and outer battle they need to overcome. May those who have the thought arise to be ordained, have more determination to make it happen. Thank you very much,for sharing this mind-changing article with all of us.

    With their expertise a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, coming together to explore knowledge of cold energy . Li Kim and team going to haunted houses to experiment the energy. The haunted house they went looks scary. Joining them is also a Taoist master, finally concluded the presence of supernatural beings, as their findings found that the energy are dark and cold. As the unseen beings do no harm, they decided to do Taoist prayers and combined healing of sound, energy before leaving the area. I do believe those unseen beings do exist. Glad to learn that sound can heal the environment and souls. . Sound wonderful .
    Thank you, Li Kim and team for this sharing.this knowledge.

    In Dharma, we learned that everything is impermanent, good thing will never last forever, that’s why we should not be attached to it as when it was gone, we will suffer tremendously, and a good news is, bad things never lasts.
    Life is a journey filled with opportunities, hardships, heartaches and its test for our courage. There is always a reason of our existence in this life.Thank you very much for this good article.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets. I believe that everything happens for a reason ,and there is a reason behind everything. That’s why Rinpoche asked to think carefully and consider certain things. Due to Rinpoche’s clairvoyance, Rinpoche knew the consequent. Rinpoche wanted us to learn to be responsible for our decisions that is beneficial to all and not jumping into anything blindly. And that is how I pray to what I want to come to be published.
    Glad to know some knowledge of Mount Shasta which I have not heard before being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing with important explanations, some knowledge to learn and guidelines for us.

    It won’t be supress Rinpoche felt more Indian as Rinpoche have been staying in India long enough. His early life spent in the monastery in India, serving his teachers and the monastic community, has taught Rinpoche cooking more Indian foods than western foods. Even all these years in Malaysia, Rinpoche preferred Indian cuisine which is rich in spices and masala such as dhal, paneer tikka, aloo mattar and paneer butter masala. Rinpoche will go all the way his students to serve Indian food to visiting Sangha so they would get a taste of home. Glad to know more of Rinpoche through this article. With Rinpoche explanation of how he felt and inherent in the Indian tradition culture, traditional spiritual practice and devotion to a spiritual teacher. All these points that Rinpoche was more Indian as what Rinpoche felt and having a strong connection with it.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again 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

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

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
