Are your kids worth it?

Feb 13, 2013 | Views: 781

If we teach our kids dharma when they are young, it means we love them. If we don’t , when they grow up they will be uncontrollable because the world and media is not getting better. And it influences them terribly…
If they have dharma, then we put something inside of them that is so good and forever. We can only do that if we are practicing..if we are practicing, they follow our example.. if we don’t practice and just tell them dharma, dharma and dharma, they will find us hypocrites and not like the dharma which is pure and beyond criticism.

How much we really love our kids is how much we will really practice the dharma…just like parents who only give food /shelter/education think this is enough, but in today’s world, it is not. How much we love them is how much we will change ourselves and practice dharma and instill it in them. This is the measure of true love and not empty love…..this is good for lay people to remember…

    To change others we first must change ourselves, and the same saying goes to the parent-children relationship. Parents cannot just mould their child in to something that they desired or something they are not, children pick up their behaviours and the way to act according to the environment and the people they lived with when they were growing up. There’s a saying, old habits die hard, rehabituation starts from the parents and thereby children will eventually pick up the good habituation the parents instilled. Since parents are the role model for the child to learn, and children are the mirrors for their parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful note.

    With folded hands,

    The best thing we can ever give to our children or the best thing we can ever contribute back to the society is by transforming ourselves and be a good example to the children and younger generation, so that they can apply the good qualities learnt from the Buddhist principles and by then we can improve the community to be more harmonious and peaceful. The best gift to anyone especially young one is the exposure to spirituality, as they grow they will have more skill in dealing with problems.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this piece of thoughts.

    谢谢仁波切与我们分享。我觉得让小孩从小接触佛法教育是最好的心灵课程。有佛法心灵的小孩他们多多少少会有慈悲心和正能量的启发。当他们遇到瓶颈或烦恼时也不会轻易的做傻事或受负面影响。这也是我个人经验,因为我从小就有上佛法教育,所以每遇到难关都会以佛法来看待事情或祈福佛法加持。

    感恩詹杜固仁波切

    因为您的开示与教诲,我们学习了很多,我们也应该的把佛法传给我们的小朋友

    佛法包含了很多,能够迎领我们的小朋友走向正确的方向,我们在很大的时候才遇见我们的上师,接触到佛法,因为我们的功德不够

    然而培养小朋友从小就开始接触佛法,学习好所有累积福德资粮的修行,那么他们就能有更充足的时间来累积功德,与能够有更多的时间来完成许多的修行,走向证悟与能够在年轻的时候就转化成更好的心识,从而有力量利益与帮助一切的众生

    师父常说不要再等了,没有时间了,世间无常,我们自己都后悔那么迟才来到这里学习佛法,许多大动作的修行,如大礼拜,我们都开始有心没力了,快把佛法传给小朋友吧,我相信这是对他们最好的一份礼物

    感恩詹杜固仁波您的教诲与开示,没有您,我学习不到那么多的佛法,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    I feel really blessed to have been born close to the dharma, especially growing up to see my parents and sisters practice it. I really appreciate all that Rinpoche and my family has done to give me the dharma and knowledge to make what I hope are the right decisions, good decisions. I have parents who work really hard day in day out not just for themselves but for us, for society, for kechara. Their work for Rinpoche will benefit so many people. The dharma has given me what I hope is a better outlook in life, being aware of more things and decisions that I make. I don’t think I would be in my position today if it hadn’t been for Rinpoche giving me the dharma, planting the seeds into my mind, teaching me to love and respect my family and other people. I hope to continue to grow and transform my mind into becoming a better person. Thank you Rinpoche for ever so tirelessly teaching us the dharma.

  6. Grace Leu ( KHJB ) on Mar 10, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    so simple but worth to contemplating.this is truth that if we can share Dharma to our children, it did benefit them but we must practice it and show it instead “talking”..thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

  7. Eric Lee KHJB on Mar 2, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    我个人佛法,就是给孩子最好的礼物。因为有佛法的根基在他们的心中,他们就会明白很多道理,不会做很多不对的事而累积业障,没有业障就能开心快乐的成长,所以佛法是给与孩子最好的礼物。

  8. Davin on Feb 28, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche. Yes, totally agree. It is important teaching kids dharma from young. Learning dharma is something that is so good and forever. It will be better if we practicing the dharma and show our kids a good example.

  9. Soon Huat on Feb 27, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche. I totally agreed on this. I used to chant in front of the alter, my kid follow to take the puja and chant in baby language. The kid learn a lot and like to follow what parent/ the person closest to him/her. Thanks Rinpoche for the kind teaching.

  10. Paris on Feb 22, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I don’t think I will ever have kids myself but I have some very good friends in Dharma who have children and I have seen them grow up in Dharma. It’s really true that they’re very different from other children without Dharma – they think things through more reasonable and more importantly, with more compassion and thought for others, they’re more independent, more adventurous and creative, more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others – how unusual and rare to find this even in the oldest adults!

    As much as education is important, what’s more important I think is how kids will use what they learn and interact with others from and with their knowledge – do they use it to contribute back to the world in a positive way? Or use it to simply become more materialistic, most greedy, more arrogant? Dharma helps them make these decisions clearly at a later time in their life where their principles will distinguish them from any other ordinary kid who has had the same education as them.

  11. uncle eddie on Feb 21, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Yes, everything we do leave an imprint in our children, especially kind and spiritual actions and behaviour – better to behave as best as we can too. Children develope confidence, maturity and love, learning from parents, enabling them to do well academically and to make a successful transition to adult life later on. Best is to teach them Buddhism, which is said,is not taught as a faith, but as a set of principles and tools for living a productive and fulfulling life. The best gift a person can give to his children is the capacity to utilise their minds darmically, pure and honestly in their future live to benefit and helping others too!

  12. So Kin Hoe on Feb 18, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your valuable advice. We were all kids before and being as young kids, our mind is green and yet to be equipped with life experience. Kids will only learn and trust the most from the nearest people around them, which are their parents. If we love our kids, please guide them the Dharma way while their minds are yet to be polluted.

  13. Lim (KH JB) on Feb 18, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for reminding, i truly agree with Rinpoche.

    Dharma is the best gift for next generations and so on, if all of them can understand Dharma, learn Dharma and practice Dharma sure the world will be peace.

    Parents is the most important Model in Dharma practice, if we dun practice then how we can teach our children and ask them follow us to learn Dharma???

  14. Darren Kechara Paradise on Feb 16, 2013 at 12:25 am

    Good nurturing on the young is very important, having bulk or dozen of kids is no big deal but is to guide them to serve the society with Dharma.

  15. sweekeong on Feb 15, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    The best we can give to our kids are honesty, self-discipline, working hard, and spending times with kid and providing them the opportunity for their mental growth. We have taken the responsibility of having kids therefore we need to be responsible to ourselves to give them the best by being a good example. Children learn the most from their parents because we have the most influenced on them. Ultimately we want them to grow up to become independent adults who can give back to the society we can be proud of, not just making and keeping money.

  16. Andrew Boon on Feb 15, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    Very apt for this day and age especially when kids no longer just “obey” what parents say but are more inquisitive and questioning. What better way than to lead by example!

    And I certainly speak for myself when I say this, it saves so much more time if we had Dharma from a young age, so YES it IS worth it for sure!

  17. HelenaC on Feb 15, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, It is absolutely a great thing to give our children. Teach them Dharma while they are young, they will be a good person in the future. As what is very true that Rinpoche said that the world and the media is not getting any better. A loving parents is to bring Dharma to the kids and practice it themselves too.

  18. uncle eddie on Feb 15, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Yes, everything we do, leave an imprint on our children, so what should be considered the main benefit of an imprint we should leave with our children? Through the daily reflection of adults’ behaviour, children learn how to gain a greater sense of feeling and better insight to develope their mind. But the best way is to send them to a Dharma school or centre to have moral teachings and the truths that are central to all religions. As we are awared that Buddhism is not taught as a faith for too young a kid, but as a principle and tools for living a productive and fulfilling life. It is being taught as a practical way that helps chidren to understand the world around them and to make sense of their inner feelings and emotions. Many also have mindfulness seesions as a postive part of their development for wisdom and knowledge to prepare them to fit into their future adult live! It would be worth for our kids to attend and learn.

  19. Han on Feb 15, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    “How much we really love our kids is how much we will really practice the dharma… ” as adults or parents, WALK THE TALK IN DHARMA is so important. Just talk dharma without showing in ACTION, definitely not much influence to the kids. So practice and instill dharma at home to show the kids is very crucial. Dharma would be the best gift to our kids !

  20. Erickksiow on Feb 15, 2013 at 12:49 am

    Kids absorb new things very fast, no matter the things are good or bad.. They really learn fast, and is very good to let Kids to learn about Dharma and practicing Dharma.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing. 🙂

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  21. Lim Han Nee on Feb 15, 2013 at 12:04 am

    It matters much that we can teach our children the Dharma when they are young. They are more ready to listen with an open mind, not influenced as yet by the media.

    In fact, they will listen more if they find their parents practicing what they teach.Thus if we truly love our kids, we would be practicing the Dharma and transforming and influencing them through our own transformation.

    The only meaningful gift to our children would be to instill the Dharma in them. It’s the only thing they can carry with them lifetime after lifetime.

  22. Sheryl KH (JB) on Feb 14, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Being able to meet Dharma is a fortune, because Dharma not only teaches us good values but also knowledge that Buddhas passed down to us.

    It is so true about the importance of teaching by examples. I think this is true not only in parent-children relationship, but also many other kinds of relationships that involve leaders and members.

    Talking does not convince people well enough. Actions speak louder because actions call for things that have been said to be put into actions, which require much more energy, resources and dedication, and only those who truly embrace these values can carry them out.

  23. Lucas Roth on Feb 14, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    my mother tries so hard in the dharma to take care of my two brothers and i to get closer to the dharma at a young age.i am so proud of my mom and how she is so achieved and blessed. she is the kind of mom that comes around every 10 lifetimes at least. her kids and the dharma is what she really loves and the dharma is a good way to teach children to not be spoilt.

    • Li Kim on Feb 15, 2013 at 4:48 pm

      My darling Lucas,
      Thank you for your sharing. I did not know how you thought. I am so happy you understand my efforts. Yes the Dharma is very good and as your mom I can give you this as the best gift ever sweetheart… I love you… Mummy

      • Sharon on Feb 15, 2013 at 11:42 pm

        Hi, Li Kim….Lucas’ wonderful comment about you says it all. You are my role model. I hope to bring my kids closer to Dharma the way you have. Perhaps you could write a little handbook and call it “Mummies in Dharma – Planting the Seeds”:P

    • Joy on Feb 15, 2013 at 5:24 pm

      Awww this is so sweet… I could cry 😛

      I wish I was so lucky to have a mum in Dharma and does so much like Li Kim… you are truly blessed Lucas! It is the best gift any mother could give her child, her family… it is the highest of the highest because this gift is something money cannot ever buy… it is purely out of great wisdom and real love especially coming from a mother like Li Kim 🙂 Li Kim does a lot and has so many Dharma portfolios… it is good as her son to support your mum the right way by taking care of your borthers as much as you can and in return you collect the same amount of merits as your mum who does so much in dedication to her family.

      Kids with Dharma are so blessed, when they grow up they are equipped with the right methods to deal with life in a positive wise light. If we truly truly love our kids the right way, we would give them the best gift of life – Dharma.

    • Sharon Saw on May 13, 2013 at 1:01 pm

      This reply from Lucas is what every Dharma parent wishes for – for their child to understand that what the parents wish for and do is ultimately for their benefit. I am happy for Lucas and Li Kim and her other sons too… I’m sure Li Kim is happy to know how Lucas thinks 🙂 Parents – get your kids on blog too… you never know what they will say (hmmm not quite sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing) 🙂

  24. lewkwanleng on Feb 14, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    I grow up in a culture that giving money, houses and other material things to our kids is the best thing we can do for our kids. However, we have seen so many real life examples where kids with lots of money are having so much suffering. Even kids who not have a lot of money have a lot of sufferings.

    So then, what is the right thing to pass to kids? If it is not money and material things, then what?

    From what I learn consistently from Rinpoche, we need to give them Dharma, and from so many real life example, kids grow up with Dharma are much more contributing to the society, nicer to parents and friends, etc.

    Dharma is not about doing puja, chanting; but much more than that. It is about being patient to others, being more selfless everyday, being less attached to things which are not permanent, etc.

    I am glad I have met Rinpoche, where I started this journey of practicing Dharma where I can be an example for my kids to practice Dharma. As Rinpoche said, kids are watching and we definitely don’t want to be a hypocrite 🙂

  25. nicholas on Feb 14, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    The education system in our country does not encompasses the spiritual learning. To strike a balance for the children we need to provide spiritual teaching to them as this is the core value and also guide for them to really face the world.

    A lot of time we always hear children were under pressures, committing suicide, turn to bad and etc.. This doesn’t only happen to children that not doing well in their education but so to that are smart and brilliant. How scary it can turn out to be?

    The kids nowadays not only observe but also question on our actions. They will also assess and see whether what we say is what we do. If we don’t walk the talk it’s just shows to the kids that we are hypocrite and this will directly paint the picture that the dharma that we always says that we are practicing is just for sack of talking.

    If we practice and make a different it show the children the right way.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teaching.

  26. Louise Lee on Feb 14, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    让小朋友接触宗教,其实是一件好事! 因为,在这里的人都是有心要学好与进步!

    上师 、 老师、 工作人员等等都是一个好的学习榜样!

    一个好的环境,让小朋友快乐的成长吧!

  27. Daisy Sun on Feb 14, 2013 at 8:17 am

    Definitely this is one of the important task in my priority list! Please please announce when the MKC will resume! Couldn’t wait for it…Thank you very much!

  28. sarahyap on Feb 13, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    There is nothing more valuable in this world that we can give to anyone either than the Dharma.

    We can give our loved ones money, fun, education, the best food, clothes, a great place to live in… but ultimately, these items are never permanent and it never gives true happiness because look at us, we don’t have true happiness either, so why give these things to our children when it is already time and tested by our very self that it does not bring true happiness?

    If we truly love someone, then we will wish for their happiness to be a lasting and permanent one, and is that not what Dharma offers us? True lasting happiness and ultimately, Enlightenment?

    This not only applies to giving to our children, but it applies to people of all ages. Take for example child, giving the Dharma to his or her parents. Is that not a befitting gift back to our parents after they’ve suffered and brought us up for so many years? To give them the gift of lasting happiness and the cessation of their suffering.

    However, the trick here is for us to apply the Dharma to ourselves first, and then give the Dharma or just like what Rinpoche said, we will be viewed as a hypocrite, and give Dharma a bad name… thus turning them away from Dharma. Just like how Buddha himself left his family to seek for enlightenment and then return to teach the path to liberation to his family… we too must follow the example of applying the wisdom to ourselves first before we start preaching, or else it will look like all we have is knowledge but zero practice.

    In this era ofcourse there is really no true need to physically leave our families to do Dharma, instead we can improve a little by little, but surely (of course the faster the better)… and eventually bring our parents, children and even partners into the Dharma through our example.

    I have heard many of my Dharma brothers and sisters said that people around them are more keen or open to Dharma after observing how they’ve transformed… and this transformation is not something huge like gaining visions of Manjushri or something as high as that (if yes then it’s great!)… but it is transformation where people notice they become more even tempered, more friendly, less impatient, less nasty, easier to be around with etc. When we see that anything we do that’s negative becoming less and less with time, then it shows to us that we are doing our practice right.

  29. philyong on Feb 13, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    I wish very much I found the Dharma when I was younger. I have wasted so much time going round and round achieving NOTHING.

    Parents who are in the Dharma must really teach their kids from young. It is only the Dharma that will ensure the kids grow up well as like what Rinpoche mentioned.

    If parents really do love their kids, they should do it the right way. Not by providing them with material needs only. Love for someone goes beyond this life. and the material items we give to our love ones in this case our kids will only last this lifetime if not shorter. Dharma is the way to go!

  30. Martin on Feb 13, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    What is put inside the young ones as they are growing becomes the engine that drives them eventually. At some point soon, parents will not be able to protect the children from the realities of the world and they cannot shelter the children forever. Therefore the best gift of love a parent can give to the child is to prepare them for the world. But how do you prepare a child for each and every vicissitude of life? The only way is to give them the Dharma so that as adults Dharma becomes instinctive. The only real protection from harm and the only thing that can grant happiness is Dharma and nothing else. This we can confirm from people who have pursued everything else but Dharma and end up being miserable, stressed and feeling like failures, not to mention being totally unprepared to face their karma.

    To put is a bit crudely, why bring a child into samsara which is defined by suffering, and not provide them with the antidote as well?

  31. Sharon Saw on Feb 13, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    Definitely we have to walk the talk. Our kids are not stupid and if you say one thing and do another, guess what, our kids will do the same. The fruit does not fall far from the tree! If we say we love Dharma, what do we do that reflects it? We should think about that and how we can influence our children on a positive level.

    Book learning only gets kids so far. Money can be finished. The Dharma will benefit my son from life to life. Some people think should i do Dharma or not.. For me, there isn’t anything to choose between! My son is 15 and i wish he would finish school already!!

    During his school holidays, like this week for Chinese New Year, instead of going around eating out, shopping, playing, watching TV etc, everyday, we have the privilege of coming to Rinpoche’s private office to do Dharma work. We are really very fortunate and i humbly thank Rinpoche for giving us the opportunity to do this since we never know when our short lives will end.

  32. MayOng on Feb 13, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Dharma encompass values like effort, discipline, ethics etc. which parents would like their children to have. However, parents do rely on school/child minders to teach their children these nowadays. Parents have also forgotten children’s behavior model after adults who live with them.

    As parents, we should try to balance the type of education we want our children to learn. We need to make effort to ensure our children get both academic as well as dharmic knowledge to equip them to survive in future to become good role models in the society.

  33. abby f on Feb 13, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    It is true that our parents think that giving us shelter, food, education is enough, because this is what they don’t have in the past, what they need the most in the past to make sure they can survive, and these are the things they think the best to give to us. Parents are great person, they will give everything(which they think the best) to the children, but they didn’t get the precious Dharma from their parents too, that’s why they don’t understand.

    If the parents get to know Dharma and if they are practicing, they should give it to their children, just like the things(shelter, food, education) they give to their children. Add one more thing, that is the Dharma, then it would be good enough for both the parents and the children. They even can practice Dharma together. It is good to let the kids understand and educate them what is the true love, love for others not just ourselves.

  34. tenzin llhamo on Feb 13, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Thank you for the wonderful advise Rinpoche. I will always remember. Its the BEST gift ever for them! Yes, no matter how much Dharma I stuff in their face and I myself do not lead by example, they will not listen to me. I dont want to be a hypocrite! I really want my kids to have Dharma at a young age and something they can take with them in all lives.

  35. David Lai on Feb 13, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    This is what Rinpoche had been telling everyone and its just not for parents alone. Rinpoche had always told me that if I want to influence my mum or anyone else, I must first be practicing the Dharma myself. That’s the cold hard reality whether we reflect the teachings of not.

    We don’t need to be completely faultless but we do need to be discipline with ourselves in fulfilling our promises and commitments. Over time, we do need to lessen our attachments and improve on our weak points for our loved ones that we hope to influence to the Dharma. How much we have changed would be how much our loved ones are influence to do more Dharma. This is as much a reminder for me as it is a sharing for others.

  36. jennifer on Feb 13, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the very wise teaching.

    Yes it is so true that as parents we want the best for our children, we scrimp, save and sacrifice so that our children will have a better future. But there is no better future for them than for us to lay the right foundation. When the children are young, we teach them the Dharma and set good examples for them to follow.

    We not only prepare them for a better future, but for their future lives too. Then they in turn will teach their children the Dharma, and this beautiful teaching and the guideline will perpetuate into the future for many generations.

    Children are only ‘on loan ‘ to us in this lifetime, so we must make the best use of what little time we have with them to instill the values and teachings of the Buddha to them.

  37. Felix Kong on Feb 13, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Totally agreed,the best gift for kids is dharma. That is forever for them if they are learning dharma. Giving material support for them only can fulfill temporary “Happiness”. Have to change it and practice , be a good example show to future generation.

  38. Han on Feb 13, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    100% agreed ” How much we love them is how much we will change ourselves and practice dharma and instill it in them.”

    Nowadays kids are very smart, they learn new things very fast, as adults or parents should show dharma way of lifestyle to them, they will instill with dharma too. We are the mirror to them, we practice and WALK THE TALK in dharma ways, sure the kids will learn from us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short but profound teaching.

  39. wei theng on Feb 13, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for your precious teaching.

    The best gift we can give to our loved one and children is the gift of Dharma. However, to instill Dharma to them, we have to walk the talk and be the example to transform ourselves to a better person. Or else, it is just words. Although for the beginning they may not understand, but I’m sure they will understand it one day when they see our change for better. I still remember Rinpoche’s teaching on another post: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/kids-watch-parents.html

    I will work hard on it as it is not just for our loved one, it is for all beings.

  40. Wah Ying on Feb 13, 2013 at 11:10 am

    We do it, we change, we put in effort because we think our kids worth it, worth to have true love, and better tomorrow than us.

  41. benji on Feb 13, 2013 at 9:32 am

    I totally agree, Rinpoche. Many people think that leaving a material legacy for their children is the most important thing. That, sadly, is not enough. In fact heirs of immense fortune, if they do not have WISDOM, COMPASSION and VIRTUOUS CONDUT etc. not going to be happy – history has show us many such cases. I pray that the many ill-directed parents and elders will take Rinpoche’s advice to heart. Do something for the future generation before it is too late.

  42. Jessica Yap on Feb 13, 2013 at 4:00 am

    Just like plant that needs to be nurtured taken care of when growing, the same goes to children. Parents are the very first few adults that they interact with s o naturally the children will follow the parents’ behavior and attitude. All these are learnt since day 1. Children are the best mirror of their parents.

    So the best gift we can give to our children would be Dharma. Dharma will protect them all of their lives not only this life.

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche

    The unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa was proclaimed to be Sonam Yeshe Wangpo. From birth, he spoke with clairvoyance and seemed to remember people and events of his past life. Even as a young man , he travelled tremendously as part of his retinue, with the 3rd Dalai Lama and gave various teachings as well. Throughout the journey, he had even composed verses to praise and commentaries on the teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Spirits and unseen beings are everywhere not only actually restricted to specific areas. Places such as cemeteries, abandoned houses or places where death occurred. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eye, but for some they could see it or sense their presence. Many people of different faith reported having experienced sense the presence of spirits. Interesting rather scary reading Steven Wong ghostly experienced in the motel . I have encounter such before staying in hotel . More scary I can say. That’s past history, since coming to Buddhism I am not scare at all , I will recite DS Mantra . Later do prayers and dedicate to them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this article written by Tsering Shakya, again as it tells us more and understand better of the situation suffered by Tibetan people. Due to the Dorje Shugden controversy many Tibetans suffered . Many of them migrated to other countries to the west for better opportunities. Tibetan culture and identity is inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism. Somehow once in a foreign land they tend to lose their traditions and cultures slowly over times. Living in foreign land , it difficult to maintain their true identity. For them Tibetans maintaining links to the homeland presents a very unique challenges tasks. If only the Tibetan leadership more opened, forgo the past and accepts as what HH Dalai Lama said that Dorje Shugden is no evil and do no harm. Tibetan Buddhist could continue practicing the Dorje Shugden’s practice. Tibetan should stand united to protect the Tibetan heritage and culture instead discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners so much so had divided the Tibetans. Many of them left and migrated else where to look for better livelihood.
    Tsem Rinpoche had gone through a rough time , rejected twice from the moment of birth from Taiwan to US and travelling to India where Rinpoche found a place called home then. Later to Malaysia as advice by his Guru.
    To this end, the discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners must end for the sake of the all Tibetans living in India and Nepal .
    A very good article by Tsering Shakya, more people should read it to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    Feeling disappointed when someone a Sangha supposed to promote peace, harmony and helps to give teachings to those who are new instead promoting hatred, cursing another person. Its wrong to tell people to break their samaya with their teachers. They must be given the wrong information about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners . The Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and causing misunderstanding among the Tibetans. The rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners were denied just because for practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are side-lined from their own community, denied medical care, education and even employment in government offices. The Tibetan Leadership has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden causing sufferings among many. Sad indeed hopefully these controversy will dissolve soon as more people understand and know that Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the Tibetan leadership.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    Buddhism is one of the most popular religions all over the world. Buddha statues have different shapes, sizes, different gestures or mudras and styles of presentation. Well said by Tsem Rinpoche the bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our life. It gives out more powerful positive and relaxing energy to help us. concentrate better. One of the methods for us to purify our karma to suit our current karma-bound situation. By circumambulating 500 mantra stones one time we could accumulate much more merits in just one round of circumambulation. All thanks to Rinpoche having this idea with many mantra stones as possible for us to circumambulate. The larger the Buddha image, the more merits are collected the greatest amount of benefit for one who sincerely circumambulating.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this amazing post and explaining all the details for us to understand more.

    Ra Lotsawa said to be an emanation of Manjushri was a great tantric master who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. He was declared to be a saint and a fully enlightened Buddha. Many viewed as a murderous villain with magical powers and by some as a liberator of human suffering. Ra Lotsawa used his power and magical abilities to defeat his enemies rather rivals to accumulate wealth. He received many Empowerments and practices, which came into conflict with other lamas. His life offers a rare view into the often overlooked roles of magic and sorcery in the Buddhist tradition. In the book The All-Pervading Melodious Drumbeat tells the story of Ra Lotsawa Dorjé Drak . It was written by Ra Yeshe Sengye, and translated for the first time into English. Despite this obsessed legacy, his fame also rests on an illustrious career as a translator of Buddhist scriptures. Ra Lotsawa was so revered in Tibetan Buddhism even though he was so evil where nobody can denied. Interesting read an classic account of one of the most colourful and memorable figures in Tibetan Buddhist history.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tibetan incense is natural incense used in Tibetan Buddhism rituals for 1,300 years. In Tibet, for many centuries, incense has been a part of their daily lives. Widely used for relaxation, meditation and the cleansing of the home environment. Incense is also widely used in Buddhist temples and monasteries, as an offerings. In Buddhism, symbolic offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. Offering incense is a symbol of purification. It is a very powerful way to revitalize environment ,removing obstacles and purifying one’s karma. Incense offering to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is indeed very helpful and beneficial. It helps in many ways as such to clear any obstacles ,and so on.All thanks to our Guru Tsem Rinpoche for sharing this practice .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrice Ooi for this sharing and explaining the details of incense. We are so fortunate to learn, understand and practice it.

    Looking at the picture in this post tells all. That Russian boat workers risking his life just wanted to save this poor dog. Extreme freezing cold weather , yet that fisherman did what he needed to do. The dog was rescued and brought back to the shore ,running happily with other dogs. Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring, truly inspiring. Let our hearts be stretched out in compassion toward others even they are animals, they are one us. Compassion conquered all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post.

    11 December 1993 marked the date where a heart breaking tragedy strike at Highland Tower , located at Taman Hillview, Ulu Klang Selangor. It’s the very day when of the three blocks collapsed completely killing 50 residents. Bukit Antarabangsa area soon come to an almost complete halt as this area to be a high risk zone. The Highland Towers tragedy that happened is the worst high-rise building collapse in the nation’s history. The remaining residents shifted else way as the area considered not safe over the stability of the two other towers. Due to the number in deaths there it became haunted as many people have claimed and many creepy incident has happened. It is regarded to be the creepiest, most haunted places in Malaysia due to the Highland Tower incident. Its not surprising that one might have experiences or have seen weird things around the area. Krishna Rajagopal’s as one of them. Thanks for sharing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    H E Tsem Rinpoche our Guru was the one who teaches us constantly, and has shown us the way. As we walk with the Rinpoche, we walk in the light of existence, away from the darkness of ignorance. Rinpoche was the one who teaches us what life is and also how to make the most of it. We are the only one who enlightened our path by removing the darkness of our ignorance and in the spiritual journey. Without Rinpoche many aspects of our life would have been unexplored. Not only our Guru will help us in our spiritual journey and in many other ways to transform our mind to be a better person. Enriching our life and widening our horizons. We are so fortunate to have connected with Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden in this life. Whatever advice given by Dorje Shugden should be taken seriously as Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands for imparting the immense wealth of knowledge and wisdom. I am where I am only because of Rinpoche.

    Language is important in every aspect of our lives as it allows people to communicate in a manner that enables the sharing of common ideas. More or less a communication tool used by everyone in their daily life . A very good idea of having Dharma teachings or whatever for more people to understand. Having Dharma in other languages where more people will get to learn and practice Dharma. Now its available in Nepali and Indonesian languages.…… a big hand applause to Valentina Suhendra and Mitra. Both are long time students of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche . Their fellow countrymen working in Malaysia and around the world will understand it better and may receive the benefits of practicing it. More will get to know of the Powerful Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche

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.
    5 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
