His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe

Lama Yeshe on Bodhicitta:

“Bodhicitta is extremely precious, like a diamond mine. In order to have space for it, you have first to equalize your feelings towards all universal living beings. You need to generate a deep, sincere feeling of equanimity, from the bottom of your heart. Without extending this feeling of equanimity to all living beings, it is not possible to say that you want to dedicate your life to others.

“When you understand your own disastrous situation–with your problems of egotism, craving, desire, anger, and so forth–you see yourself as an object of compassion. You then remember that you are not the only one in this situation. In society, some people are high class, some are middle class, and others are low class, but everybody is the same as you, in wanting happiness and not wanting to be miserable.

“Consider your relationship to friends, enemies and strangers. Your craving over-estimation of one person, your hatred of another, and your ignorant indifference to yet another come from your own three poisonous minds of desire, hatred and ignorance. They are objects of your own mind. They do not exist externally. Like renunciation, equanimity has to do with inner experience.

“In your daily life, you should practice equanimity as much as you can, by trying not to have enemies and not to have exaggerated grasping towards people. In the space of equanimity, you can then nurture your Bodhicitta. Bodhicitta is an extremely high realization that is the complete opposite of the self-cherishing attitude. Self-cherishing thought is like a sword you put through your heart; Bodhicitta is like medicine. Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy. When you work for yourself, you are in the iron grip of ego.

“What really matters is your attitude. The dedicated attitude of opening your heart to all universal living beings brings relaxation. In our lives, we don’t have time for meditation, and even when we try to meditate, our minds are sluggish. However, I really believe that making a strong determination that today, and for the rest of your life, you will dedicate yourself to others, as much as possible, is very powerful. In my opinion, this Bodhicitta attitude is much more powerful and much more practical in the Western environment, than doing meditations in which you squeeze yourself.”

I was 18 years old when this was taken back in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Here I am in this photo with my most precious root guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He has profoundly changed my life for the better forever. Not a day goes by I don’t think about him, love him, miss him and yearn for his presence and teachings.

I meditate on him in my heart every single day. He was everything that a high Tibetan lama is said to be and more. From the moment I heard his name before meeting him from a friend who had met him already, faith instantly arose in me. Instantly faith arose in me. I did 100 prostrations to his picture everyday until I met him. I wanted to make a spiritual karmic connection with him so that when I met him, I can receive many teachings and that is why I made the prostrations.

No other spiritual teacher although all of them were great has this sort of meteoric impact on me. It’s unexplainable. 30 plus years down the line, my faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is unshakable. I will always follow and practice what he has taught me and given me. I will never abandon my teacher or any practice he has given me no matter what obstacles come my way.

No matter if my life is threatened, or I am disliked or segregated for following his instructions, I will never abandon any of his teachings. No other teacher will ever have me change my practice I have received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. May I meet Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in all my future lives too and come under his care. I forever bow to him and place the crown of my unworthy head to his feet. I will follow, meditate, trust and believe in my guru always.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

 
这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。

每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。

其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。

我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

    Be loyal to your guru. Be close to your guru. Be honest with your guru. Never give your guru excuses but always accomplish your assignments that your guru has given you. Be loving, devoted and sincere with your guru. If you conduct yourself in this way, you will see positive transformations in your mind. ~ Tsem Rinpoche

  2. Lin Mun on Jan 19, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us to have strong Guru Devotion and practicing it. It is very important as a Buddhist to have this strong relationship with the Guru because he is the one who can lead us to enlightenment.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the teaching of Bodhicitta given by Lama Yeshe and showed us the way of respecting our Guru through the sharing about Guru Devotion towards His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. The teaching of Bodhicitta given by Lama Yeshe is simple to understand and comprehend but owing to the long habituation of self-grasping, craving, desire, anger and other selfish attitudes ever since many of us were being taught of taking care of ourselves in secular world, the practice of Bodhicitta requires more effort for normal people including myself.

    Upon reading over and over about the equanimity as explained by Lama Yeshe, we should view others as similarly important as how we view ourselves. For example, when we want to take our meal without much delay in order to satisfy our hunger, this feeling of hunger will also be experienced by the homeless people and other animals where these unfortunate living beings are not able to receive sufficient food for most of the time or even for long period of time. Hence, we need to put ourselves into that unfortunate situation that brings out our inner Bodhicitta to generate compassion, selflessness and generosity in order to help the less fortunate ones spontaneously by giving them food, building shelters for the animals, helping the homeless people in any aspects that are required and many more.

    Everyone is looking for happiness including all of us. If anyone who has caused us to feel unhappy, disappointed us or brought us pain and suffering while looking for their happiness in the wrong way, we should always be reminded that the ones who cause others with suffering and pain (whether physically or emotionally) deserve our forgiveness and empathy the most because they are not equipped with Dharma knowledge and wisdom. They are unknowingly creating more suffering and pain back to themselves due to the law of cause and effect. For instance, when there are people scolding us or getting angry with us without the slightest reason, we should be in controlled, keep calm and cool them down compassionately so that we can show them the example of practicing Dharma at that very moment. This is one of Eight Verses of Thought Transformation teachings passed down by Geshe Langri Tangpa and further explained by Tsem Rinpoche from the link https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/eight-verses-of-thought-transformation.html

    May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness. May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering. May all sentient beings never be parted from happiness and free from suffering. May all sentient being abide in equanimity, free from bias, attachment and aversion.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Lama Yeshe was a very devoted student of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Lama Yeshe very much loved and respected Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and was the first lama to invite Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to the west. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave vast amount of empowerments, oral transmissions, teachings and sogtae of Dorje Shugden to many of Lama Yeshe’s senior students. Towards the end of Lama Yeshe’s fruitful life, he was in the hospital and physically shutting down. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was giving teachings in Switzerland and was requested to fly in which Kyabje Zong Rinpoche most graciously did. Here in this picture is Kyabje Zong Rinpoche doing special prayers for his student Lama Yeshe. Lama Yeshe was already partially paralyzed, but true to a meditation master, his mind was extremely clear and bright. You can see Lama Yeshe leaning towards Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in deep respect and devotion. Lama Yeshe practiced all the lineages, yidams, protectors such as Dorje Shugden given to him till the end of his life. He never gave up on any of his practices as he has great devotion to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and his other lamas. Lama Yeshe’s samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was so pure, intact and perfect till the end. A great inspiration.~Tsem Rinpoche

    耶喜喇嘛是至尊嘉杰宋仁波切的忠诚弟子。耶喜喇嘛十分敬爱嘉杰宋仁波切,他是第一位把宋仁波切邀请到西方弘法的上师。嘉杰宋仁波切曾为耶喜喇嘛的许多资深弟子传授灌顶、口传、教诲和多杰雄登托命灌顶。在耶喜喇嘛即将走完丰富人生旅程之际,他躺在医院病床上,身体已经逐渐衰败。当时正在瑞士弘法的嘉杰宋仁波切被邀请前去探望他,宋仁波切欣然答应了。这张照片显示嘉杰宋仁波切正为弟子耶喜喇嘛进行特殊的法会。耶喜喇嘛那时已经处于半瘫痪状态,但作为一位禅修大师,他的心识却极度清醒。在这张照片中,可见耶喜喇嘛以无限的敬意和依止心,把身体倾向宋仁波切。耶喜喇嘛终其一生都修持上师所传授的传承、本尊、护法修持如多杰雄登法门等。他从不放弃任何上师所传授的教法,因为他对嘉杰宋仁波切和其他上师均拥有极大的依止心。耶喜喇嘛由始至终都对嘉杰宋仁波切保持清净、完整和完美的三昧耶。这真是一个启发人心的典范。~詹杜固仁波切

    It is most important that we develop a mind and attitude of Bodhicitta, a determination to work for the benefit of other beings and to relieve them of suffering, to bring greater peace to the minds of others by developing peace in our own minds.

    Cultivating equanimity in our attitude to all and a mind of love that transcends man-made barriers are prerequisites to developing Bodhicitta. Our hearts must open up to all, without discrimination between friends, enemies and strangers. In this way, we will tamp down the strong pulls and pushes of the three poisons, of strong attachment to some, hatred of others, and our ignorant indifference of strangers.Within the space created by equanimity, Bodhicitta will bloom and grow. There will be no room for us to nurture self-cherishing and shift our mind to a egocentric focus, both of which are an anathema to our inner peace and well-being.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this lovely teaching on Bodhicitta by Lama Yeshe.

  11. Samfoonheei on Aug 23, 2017 at 11:49 am

    Very powerful teachings on Bodhicitta which is explains precisely.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this powerful teachings by Lama Yeshe.
    I will keep these in mind ,have deep thoughts and maybe a wake up call for me …….(The dedicated attitude of opening your heart to all universal living beings brings relaxation. )
    Many unusual and auspicious signs happens on the day of 2nd Zong Rinpoche, Zongtrul Tenpa Chopel passing.After opening the cremation hearth they found the skull unburned and completely intact with a Tibetan ‘Ah’ syllable.
    The discovery of these extraordinary signs made everyone feel great peace, reaffirming their faith in their Teacher.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

  12. Julia Tan on Mar 1, 2017 at 1:38 am

    This is an amazing teaching on Bodhicitta. The Tibetan ‘Ah’ syllable found on the inside of the skull of the 2nd Zong Rinpoche, Zongtrul Tenpa Chopel (1836-1899 AD) after his cremation ceremony is simply amazing and proven Buddha does exist. Proven that Enlightenment in one life time is possible.

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating this blog. many people can access this blog anytime, any where. we can simply log on to look for solutions, support and teachings. We are so blessed to have Rinpoche in our lives. The world is beautiful because we have you Rinpoche.

  13. Joy Kam on Jul 13, 2016 at 2:48 am

    Stumbled upon this old blog post… revisiting it helps remind me how very very far I am from this application! And what a wonderful simple yet profound teaching this is… this time this paragraph resonates

    “What really matters is your attitude. The dedicated attitude of opening your heart to all universal living beings brings relaxation.”
    I am one of those who do not open my heart easily or often enough for deep seeded mistrust. This is something I need to work on in myself to think more with the heart and not with the head as I am inclined to do.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the precious Dharma literally on a silver platter here in cyber space… for anyone, anytime, anywhere to receive the nectar of enlightenment whenever they are ready. This blog is like a temple for so many of us near or far, distant or close.

  14. Keng on Feb 9, 2016 at 7:27 am

    Splendid post. And since sentient beings are being inflicted by the 3 poisons of the mind and dharma is literally the medication, one with dharma can become one’s own therapist countering attachment with impermanence, aversion with love or compassion and ignorance with wisdom thoughts. Thank you for sharing this

  15. Eric Ho Kok Meng on Dec 14, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this profound post by Lama Yeshe.
    Never realise that we have fallen into the 3 poison of our own minds of desire, hatred and ignorance.
    Not realising that our action of egotism, craving, desire and anger could keep us far away from happiness.
    Now i have found my antidote to my unhappiness, which is to be more friendly, cut down on craving, cut down on desire and forget about anger is the tools to my happiness.

    Before reading this article, to me Bodhicitta is up above in the sky so high, can not be reach at all. However after read this article, still feeling is up in the sky so high but the distance cut short a little bit. Hope on day i can reach there and i always remember and practicing this —–“In your daily life, you should practice equanimity as much as you can, by trying not to have enemies and not to have exaggerated grasping towards people.”

  17. Michael C. on Feb 17, 2015 at 9:40 am

    cool

  18. Pee Bee Chong on Aug 12, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. In my dedication, I always dedicate the merit of the prayers to all sentient beings and I also pray that I will learn dharma teaching to benefit others. However, in real live, I still get angry on some people and favorite one person over the others. Am I sincere with my dedication? No. I am not. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. If I really serious about dharma and my spiritual practices, I should try harder, to open my heart to all sentient beings and do what Guru has taught us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing

  19. Jim Yeh on Sep 19, 2013 at 5:32 am

    Thank you for sharing Lama Yeshe’s teaching with us Rinpoche.

    This teaching did make me think about my relationship with others and how I favour some and distance myself from other. It is true that our poisoned mind creates all the negative thoughts, e.g. If we talk to someone we do not like, we will second guess everything say or do and not give them the benefit of the doubt, when in reality, they could just be trying to help us or mean us no harm.

    I try very hard to practice equanimity and I understand its importance, if we favour one person over another, we create attachments which will eventually make us suffer later on.

    I especially liked the above passage about people from all walks of life, no matter what race or culture, they’re are looking for the same thing as us. Happiness.

  20. Jean Ai on Dec 30, 2012 at 1:03 am

    I had the honour to be present when Rinpoche published this post and immediately after that, Rinpoche gave us an explanation of it. It was mind-blowing (and I don’t use the word lightly) and shook me on a few different levels.

    1) before this, I always thought of bodhicitta as some unattainable concept far removed from my everyday life. But Rinpoche explained it in a very matter-of-fact manner that made it seem possible for me to achieve bodhicitta which is that when you don’t treat everyone equally, you cannot gain bodhicitta which is to care for everyone equally. That’s it. Bodhicitta is caring for everyone equally.

    I KNOW bodhicitta is so much more than that and Rinpoche was being kind by simplifying it so much so that we can understand. But by simplifying it, it became relevant to me.

    2) I always saw Dharma relationships as being very beautiful but Rinpoche’s talk made me realise no matter how perfect a “Dharma relationship” is, the two words simply don’t go together. “Dharma” is about lessening our attachment. When we are in a “relationship”, even if both parties are spiritual, we are furthering our attachment because you have a craving over-estimation for one person…so how does that match what Dharma is about?

    Because you favour one person over others, you cannot attain bodhicitta. Since attaining bodhicitta is a prerequisite of becoming a bodhisattva, if you are in a relationship, you cannot gain attainments.

    Suddenly I realised that there is a reason why monks and nuns are celibate. No matter how uncool anyone says that is, you will never see a monk or nun suffer the same kind of lay dramas that we create and find ourselves in constantly. People think it’s difficult to be a monk or nun, but I’m starting to see it another way which is that to be ordained is real refuge because finally your mind can have peace.

    • Paris on Jan 1, 2013 at 1:58 am

      Couldn’t have said it any better!

      I found especially poignant the correlation between these relationships / aversions we have with people and the three poisons:

      “Your craving over-estimation of one person, your hatred of another, and your ignorant indifference to yet another come from your own three poisonous minds of desire, hatred and ignorance.”

      I had never thought of our relationships with people (not just romantic) in this way, but this explanation shows so clearly that in essence, the way we relate to every single person on the planet only reflects just how much we are still mired and controlled by the three poisons within our mind. For as long as we are in love with one person, hold a grudge against another or feel nothing for that person we just accidentally bumped into on the escalator, we will not be achieving Bodhicitta. Rinpoche explained that it is because two polar opposite emotions / qualities cannot exist at the same time. We cannot fill the space of our minds with equanimity for as long as it is filled with grasping (either for or against something). This makes such perfect sense – equanimity / attachment OR equanimity / aversion OR equanimity / indifference are mutually exclusive elements. They necessarily cannot exist together.

  21. wei theng on Dec 24, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this meaningful & powerful teaching on Bodhicitta by Lama Yeshe. When I fully realise the sufferings that I have, then I see the sufferings that other people also experiencing, and when I want others to be as happy as me, have the mind of equanimity, then I will have the space to generate Bodhicitta.

    I am inspired and have strong determination that today, and for the rest of my life, and all my future lives, I dedicate myself to others, as much as possible. May I support all sentient beings to be free from sufferings for the rest of my life, and all my future lives.

  22. So Kin Hoe on Dec 20, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this profound teaching from Lama Yeshe. It explains precisely about Bodhichitta.

  23. tenzin llhamo on Dec 17, 2012 at 1:17 am

    The above is such a powerful realization. Something Rinpoche have been teaching me, to do more for others and stop my selfishness. The moment we let go of our selfishness, everything else becomes easier and happier.
    Grasping onto selfishness is like holding something that is hotter than a burning hot coal and grasping it in my hands every time I am selfish. Selfishness = unhappiness

  24. Joy on Dec 16, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    This short but profound teaching by Lama Yeshe gives so much realisation to the path of Bodhicitta and real happiness…

    I’ve heard the word Bodhichitta many times but what does it really mean? We also always say and pray to dedicate our works, our life to others, for the benefit of others… but do we truly understand this are we doing it?

    In order to have Bodhicitta, we need to be able to first generate a deep, sincere feeling of equanimity to all living beings, from the bottom of our heart. This comes from the understanding that all disastrous situations arises from our own mind – the 3 poisons. Everyone wants happiness, no one wants to be miserable, hence everyone is on the same equal goal. So why should we treat anyone else differently? We often fail because we do not know how to love ourselves the right way, our hearts are close and we’re disconnected because of our exaggerated grasping view or wrong view or expectations of people which stems from the Self-cherishing ego thoughts…. But once we start to open our heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy.

    The best part that stood out in his advice is “What really matters is your attitude.”

    “The dedicated attitude of opening your heart to all universal living beings brings relaxation. In our lives, we don’t have time for meditation, and even when we try to meditate, our minds are sluggish.”

    However, I really believe that making a strong determination that today, and for the rest of your life, you will dedicate yourself to others, as much as possible, is very powerful. In my opinion, this Bodhicitta attitude is much more powerful and much more practical in the Western environment, than doing meditations in which you squeeze yourself.”

    The attitude we have in our practice is what makes the difference and if we can have a strong determination and consistency to work on improving ourselves and hence benefiting others through this… is perhaps more practical for us now then being in “meditation”. To me this is like meditation in action, you consciously wake up with this deep determination to do something positive and you go out there and actually do it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound post which I must internalise.

  25. Milly on Dec 11, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Lama Yeshe’s advice to inculcate Bodhicitta in our everyday life is very practical in environments where the people are not so ingrained with Dharma practice and its rituals. It is always the action and sincere motivation that matters most. Without Bodicitta, we cannot progress in our spiritual path.
    “Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy. When you work for yourself, you are in the iron grip of ego”.

  26. wan wai meng on Dec 11, 2012 at 2:24 am

    Equanimity is an amazing quality to develop, and very helpful to help us to live skilfully. How many times have our enemies have turned into our friends and how many times our friends become our enemies. Bodhicitta is a wish fulfilling jewel and if we have bodhicitta there is not many things we cannot achieve.

  27. Uncle Eddie on Dec 10, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Equanimity towards all living beings, including creatures is said to form the basis of Bodhicitta. To achieve enlightenment, it is essential and important to have Bodhicitta. But first of all, it is advised that one should tame the mind to develop Bodhicitta. By training the mind, it will gradually change our behaviour and as a result of it we do less harm to others. We should avoid even the smallest of negative action and to perform even the most tinniest insignificant positve action without underestimating its value. Everything we experienced is produced by our actions in Karma, the law of cause and effect. Like Rinpoche said, best of all is to dedicate our time only for others, with this we may be able to attain Bodhicitta.

  28. Fredercik Law on Dec 9, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    having equanimity to all sentient being is one part that many of us, including myself difficult to do, because of our selfish mind and ego, and also the environment that we are living in, we became so indulge in ourself, we work only for ourself, do things for ourself, and grasping for things that brings us no happiness.

    But the teaching by Lama Yeshe shows us a clear and simple advice how we can get rid of being me, me, me. Bodhichitta is in everyone, we need to tap into ourself, and working outwards to others and treat everyone and every living being as equals, as all sentient being has been our pass mothers. 🙂

    i like this “Bodhicitta is an extremely high realization that is the complete opposite of the self-cherishing attitude. Self-cherishing thought is like a sword you put through your heart; Bodhicitta is like medicine. Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy.”

    Thank You Rinpoche for this wonderful teaching by Lama Yeshe on Boddhicitta. 🙂

  29. AdelineTan on Dec 8, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    I like this paragraph, Bodhicitta is extremely precious like diamond mine.In order to have space for it,you have first to equalize your feelings towards all universal living beings you need to generate a deep, sincere feeling of equanimity from the bottom of your heart. Without extending this feeling of equanimity to all living beings,it is not possible to say that you want to dedicate your life to others. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this profound teachings.

  30. Henry Ooi on Dec 6, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Lama Yeshe, like Tsem Rinpoche, knows modern people find it hard to meditate unlike in the old days. And that is why Tsem Rinpoche always ask people to practice the dharma in our daily lives.

    These two great lamas and other great lamas have practiced bodhicitta lifetime after lifetime and bodhicitta is in them. They are the real bodhisattvas.

    It is not easy for me to practice bodhicitta because of not practicing in my past lives but If Not Now, When?

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  31. June Kang on Dec 6, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    I always think Boddhicitta is not easy to reach, is something hard to achieve. However when I read the last paragraph saying “ What really matters is your attitude.” and “strong determination”. I realize that the difficult part is me, is my attitude and is me do not have a strong determination. Great that I read this article, it help me a lots on more confident in practicing Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  32. Sheryl KH (JB) on Dec 5, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    A very precious picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe here.

    Here what we have is a relatively short article, but to truly practice this is not easy. We as humans have hatred, ignorance and desire. These thoughts come so naturally to us, even for babies.

    Equanimity leads us to Bodhicitta. Now I know this, and will try to practice.

  33. Lim Han Nee on Dec 5, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful and profound teaching on Bodhicitta by Lama Yeshe.

    Our Bodhicitta can only be nurtured within the space of equanimity which we should build around us. On a daily basis, we can begin to develop equanimity by ‘not having enemies and not having exaggerated grasping towards others’. I believe it will also help if we begin to develop a keen interest in people or beings whom we meet, whether we know them or not, realizing that behind each throbs a heart that wants happiness and not want suffering.

    We should, according to Lama Yeshe, strive to dedicate ‘self to others as much as possible’. If we can remind ourselves to do so constantly and every day of our lives, than we will truly begin to see Bodhicitta flower in us.

    As we allow Bodhicitta to grow in us, we will then be able to crush our self-cherishing thought which is ‘like a sword (we) put through (our hearts)’. Once we open our hearts to others, we will gain ‘tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy’. Wow! What a lovely thought!

  34. patsy on Dec 5, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    “Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy.”

    Rinpoche has told us many times to get out of our comfort zones and our self cherishing mind, to transform and help others with a sincere motivation. To gain bodhicitta, we should contemplate and apply this advise into our lives.

  35. Elsie Toy on Dec 5, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Thank you Rinpoche After reading it I find this line is very important to me and like to practise this so that I can be more mindful of my feelings and my thoughts whether I am meeting people I like or dislike. “In your daily life, you should practice equanimity as much as you can, by trying not to have enemies and not to have exaggerated grasping towards people.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. _/\_

  36. Sock Wan on Dec 4, 2012 at 2:21 am

    ” Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy. ”

    So, to generate bodhicitta, it is very important to open our heart to others. Rinpoche has once told me to open my heart, to be sincere and genuine to care and help others. I still remember this. I didn’t know this advice is related to the generation of Bodhicitta. Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness.

  37. Sofi on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Lama Yeshe had shown us another way of practise and that is Bodhicitta in action rather than meditation. In today’s society, there is hardly time to really sit down for meditation nor the calm mind for it.
    Previously in Lamrim class, I was ask what’s the hardest that I face and I said equanimity. Equanimity means to care for all equally, including all in the 6 realms. Even within the human realm, there are constant challenge, what more to say of animal, hungry ghost, hell beings, demi-gods n samsaric gods.
    Having said that, i feel that we also need to sit down and comtemplate before we are able to generate real bodhicitta.
    Thank you Rinpoche for guidance through this blog post.

  38. judy lam on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:36 am

    Lama Yeshe teaches that we see ourselves as an object of compassion to understand that everyone wants happiness. If we open up our heart to others, they will see our sincerity and open up to us as well. Perhaps this is what reaching out is all about.

  39. Martin on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:12 am

    The sentence that made an impact on me is “self cherishing thought is like a sword you put through your own heart” which means that all the pain, anger and grief we have blamed others for causing is actually generated by our own mind. We have been hurting ourselves basically and clearly we cannot feel hurt unless we are so focussed on ourselves and have in our minds set conditions for others to fulfill in order for us to be happy.

    Come to think of it, we instinctively relate everything around us to how we feel. And in that way, not only are we opening ourselves up to being unhappy, we are also stumbling our practice and it is impossible to generate real compassion for others no matter what kind intentions we have. This part to me is very important to remember.

    When we channel our energies to creating benefits for others and commit to that, we develop bodhicitta and in fact, we heal ourselves as well. The same fixation on ourselves can be transformed into a strong aspiration to care for others and for all the hopes we have for ourselves in our spiritual practice, that change of attitude must take the lead.

    This is more than just good advice for our spiritual practice from Lama Yeshe, it actually doubles as a samsara survival kit.

    Thank you for this post Rinpoche.

  40. sweekeong on Dec 3, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    These phrases caught my attention:
    “…like a diamond mine. In order to have space for it,…”
    “…you see yourself as an object of compassion”
    “…They are objects of your own mind. They do not exist externally.”

    Very important and I need to work a lot on this:
    “Once you begin to open your heart to others, you gain tremendous peace, tremendous pleasure, and inexhaustible energy.”

  41. KH Ng on Dec 3, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    How very very true! From our daily living we are always grasping for things that arise from our self cherishing mind. And when we try to meditate on Boddhicitta, it is so difficult as we have little time and peace. By practicing Boddhicitta off the meditation cushion and dedicate all our efforts, success and results to others and transforming our minds we can be happy and relax and our practice can advance.

    Thank You Rinpoche. I will practice as advise. With folded hands.

  42. Janice Kwok on Dec 3, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    I love this last paragraph. Simple to understand, to do and do able. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this. _/|\_
    However, I really believe that making a strong determination that today, and for the rest of your life, you will dedicate yourself to others, as much as possible, is very powerful. In my opinion, this Bodhicitta attitude is much more powerful and much more practical in the Western environment, than doing meditations in which you squeeze yourself.

    • Jace Chong on Dec 3, 2012 at 4:08 pm

      Yes, Janice, I like that paragraph too. It’s very practical and logic.

      May we dedicate all our times only for others, with this may I attain Bodhicitta.

  43. James Long on Dec 3, 2012 at 11:02 am

    众生皆平等,只要有接触过佛教的朋友都听过。可是我们真的有去实行?

    当我们原谅自己的敌人,我们也是原谅和善待自己,因果是共存的,你接收到那样的恶意批评,想必,我们以前也恶意批评过别人。我们收到的伤害,其实是我们施予别人的伤害。如果我们对他们生气,老实说我们是在气自己。

  44. Han on Dec 3, 2012 at 8:34 am

    “When you understand your own disastrous situation–with your problems of egotism, craving, desire, anger, and so forth–you see yourself as an object of compassion. You then remember that you are not the only one in this situation. In society, some people are high class, some are middle class, and others are low class, but everybody is the same as you, in wanting happiness and not wanting to be miserable.”
    When I contemplating on the above in depth, I realized this is so true that we all wanting happiness regardless whether you are rich or poor, young or old, sick or heathy etc. “SEE YOURSELF AS AN OBJECT OF COMPASSION” can be a driving force to be a better person, a strength to achieve happiness in order not to be suffered again and again.

    Thank you Rinpoche to blog this profound article !

    我应该选择哪一位上师?

    自达赖尊者颁布多杰雄登禁令以后,许多原本跟随上师修持多杰雄登的佛法修持者,突然陷入两难的情况。究竟该继续跟随上师,还是要听从达赖尊者的话,放弃雄登修持?许多人的考量往往是,自己的上师不过是一名普通僧人,而达赖尊者却是闻名全球的藏传佛教精神领袖,这是否意味着达赖尊者所说的才是唯一的答案?

    “洗浴便是我们清洁身体的方式。 但对于心灵,我们从没洗浴,也从没洗净心灵。 我们的日常生活充满了各种情绪各种事,会使我们会生气、妒忌,贪婪、存妄想,我们从没洗净自己的心灵。 唯一能洗净心灵的的做法就是打坐, 打坐是对心灵的洗净。

    在物质世界中,你一天没洗澡都没所谓,但如果是几天没洗澡,那你就会开始意识到问题的存在,且受其困扰。 要是你一周没洗澡,那其他人就会意识到这个问题,因为你身上会散发气味,所以这时候其他人也会受其困扰。 要是你没洗澡的时间再长一些,那麻烦可大了。“

    的确,在现实生活中,我们一天不洗澡就浑身不自在,除了身体觉得黏、脏和痒,身上也会逐渐发出臭味。过了两三天,不只是自己,别人也开始会察觉到。但是,对于心灵,我们却从来不给予相应的注意,试想象一个几十年从未洗涤过的心,会是一颗多么浑浊的心?也难怪社会问题如此严重,患上忧郁症等各种心理病的人日益增加。问题的根源就在于大家都不去洗涤和沉淀自己的内心,一个浮躁不安的人作茧自缚影响的是个人的心理健康,许多浮躁不安的人在一起,自然就产生摩擦,继而衍生社会问题。

    由此可见,佛教提倡静坐,即便不是为了觉悟和成佛,其背后的意义还是十分深远的。

    The journey to the heavens might be a spiritual one but it often materialises a physical aspect, too. It is perhaps this aspiration to reach the world above that inspired Myanmar‘s Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple.

    Devotees believe that Taung Kalat (which means Pedestal Hill), perched atop a volcanic vent, is home to four of the 37 Great Nats whose significance extends to all layers of Burmese culture and belief. In Burmese Buddhism, Nats are regarded as demigods or spirits who act as protectors of Buddhist practitioners. Some are guardians of the hills and forests. These deities inhabit the labyrinth of shrines, stupas and monasteries which sit tightly together just metres from the precipitous edge.

    Education plays a key role in the world and mankind’s progress. It allows us to learn from the past so we can shape a better future. Discoveries and advancements in fields such as Science, Mathematics, Medicine, Psychology, and Engineering have all been made possible because they were driven by education.

    However, many education systems developed in the past have remained stagnant while the world has changed, and continues to change at an unprecedented pace. These outdated systems fail to provide the necessary syllabi to meet the needs of our children today and the challenges they will meet in the future. With many schools offering educational structures and learning systems closely resembling those experienced by our parents and grandparents, modern children may not be as prepared as they should be for the world ahead. Modern education systems should take into account the changing landscape of mankind and of the world, which is now driven not only by automation and technology but also an increasing awareness of our impact on the environment, and our connectivity with each other and the earth.

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

    Good news, everyone. Another group of five Kecharians have completed their three-day, two-night Dorje Shugden Retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is an annual retreat that is organised by Kechara Puja House and four out of the five retreatants joined the retreat for the first time. The retreat took place at Manjushri Guest House, which is a special place perched on a hilltop within the enchanting forest landscape of Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Have you been to watch a Chinese opera before? Did you notice the front-row seats are always left unoccupied? It is said that these seats are reserved for the unseen beings like the deities and spirits.

    For the Chinese opera performers, they worship a god called Wah Kong Sifu. Wah Kong Sifu is the highly respected guardian of the Cantonese opera. It is believed that only with his blessings can the show go on as swimmingly as planned. In spiritual performances of other cultures, similar sets of rituals can also be observed.

    马来西亚彭亨州文冬的暹猛路除了有个闻名的情人瀑布,还有一座 “有求必应”、香火鼎盛的金泽财王庙,是当地不可错过的旅游胜地。金泽财王庙位于克切拉禅修林(Kechara Forest Retreat)的入口处。供奉的是来自西藏的护法,专给人们财富、人缘、生意、长寿、健康等各方面的帮助,至今给不少人带来财运。这些人拜过金泽财王后,有些人在短时间内多次买字中奖,有些几十年不曾中奖的人也突然中了奖。总之,有什么需要都可以向金泽财王求助和求保佑。金泽财王庙每天开放24小时,方便各界人士前来上香、点灯、许愿、祈福。

    Inspiring story of Mahapajapati Gotami who initiated the tradition of female monastic. She was known to be the first woman to seek ordination for women. It was not easy for her to become the ordained women since it wasn’t practiced and the women were not in the equal position as men. She goes against the odds and was fortunate that she received ordination directly from the Buddha and became the first female bhikkhuni of our time. Story of Mahapajapati Gotami ,has proven that women gain attainment same as men.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story.

    Interesting article on Uppalavanna first time coming across this , something to add to my knowledge. Uppalavanna was considered to be one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. The story on Uppalavanna is not only the longest in this collection, but also the most complicated and fantastical. Many ancient tales, twists and turns about her to date, being the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The White Old Man is a well known iconic figure symbolises wisdom, longevity and to some cultures, prosperity. Therefore it is not surprising to find the worshipping of a similar While Old Man amidst Russian and Mongolia local folklores. The incorporation of the White Old Man into Buddhism goes to show that there are many shared values in the two. Most importantly the White Old Man is a source of strength and blessing to those who prayed to him, as prescribed in his prayers and mantras. Thank you for the informative sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel that her entry in fashion world started when she could not find the perfect props and costumes, she was given the freedom to make them herself where the experience gave her the confidence to strike out on her own as a freelance stylist in 1967.

    And the happy thing is within two years, the clothes she made garnered enough attention for her to create her own label. At the same time, she reiterates that her creativity feeds from a wider perspective and has “nothing to do with politics or war”.

    Thank you so much for this article. In many article, I have came across the word ‘sadhana’, but i don’t have any idea what the word really means. Sadhana mainly helps us to achieve union with that particular Buddha-deity and that means taking on the enlightened qualities of that particular Buddha.

    Even though Rinpoche has become so exhausted where he is unable to recall whether he has done or not his sadhanas, he still makes up for it the following day. Thus, he has maintained his sadhana steadfastly, never wavering or giving up on his practice.

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

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

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

Dinner and lunch were catered by the kitchen team in Dukkar Apartments, which were all delicious and beautifully presented. All participants loved the food." by Cynthia Ng

Earlier this month, five members from our Puja House engaged in a Dorje Shugden retreat, spending three days in Kechara Forest Retreat strongly focused on Dorje Shugden whilst reciting 185,000 of his mantra. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to create a closer connection with this enlightened Dharma Protector, as H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche shares. If you would like more information about how you too can engage in retreats at Kechara Forest Retreat, please direct your enquiries to our friendly Front Desk team (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).
