I’ve always loved monks

May 27, 2015 | Views: 1,241

From very young, I always remember being attracted to monks, and wanting to be in their company. I have always been very comfortable in their presence. From young I have always wanted to be a monk.

Even when I see one monk walking on the street, my heart jumps for joy. I enjoy making offerings of food, dharma books, robes, umbrellas, drinks, medical fees to monks very much.

May the holy sangha increase, hold their morality and pass the Dharma to all that come in contact with them.

Om Mani Peme Hung,

Tsem Rinpoche

    Sanghas committed themselves to Buddha and the Dharma. We should respect them because monks renounce samsara to focus on dharma studies, practices, Buddha’s teachings to benefit others. Because of the monks’ effort and diligent practice, Dharma is alive for our future generations. I wish that Kechara Forest Retreat will have Sangha communities someday in the future to preserve our Guru and Lama Tsongkhapa precious lineages.

    We are fortunate to have monks or sangha members as they are the one who uphold the lineage teaching and guide practitioners to the right path to enlightenment.

    Thank you Rinpoche having set up Kechara Forest Retreat .
    I have found myself searching for something in life ever since I reached the level of awareness and understanding in my life.I am glad i found Kechara website to know more of Buddhism.
    I always respect any monks or Sangha i came across as to me personally they are the wonderful ones that spread Buddhism to others. I admired how simple, pure and efficient their lives were. But now i know much better and understand their roles. They are doing more than that for the benefits all sentient beings for furture generation with universal positive values such as kindness and compassion.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .May Rinpoche be healthy always to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefit all sentient beings.

    Monks are the preservers of the Buddhist tradition, they help maintain the Buddhist tradition for future generations.

  5. LOW KHJB on Jun 7, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for you sharing on Monks.When I was young,even though I did not know much about buddhism, I have a repeated wish to be a monk.
    I am always fascinated and respect the Sangha when I was young.This thought was ringing in my mind till I was 17.After finishing my further studies ,I was caught up in the rat race of samsara.
    IT was rather strange that I was able to actually able to really get to know real buddhism after the age of 40.Before that we were actually practicing buddhism( a mixture of taoism ,ancestor worship,wealth gods,and anything which should benefit us within samsara).
    All I could say now is,Thank you Rinpoche for establishing Kechara here in Malaysia in order for more Malaysian to be educated the true meaning of Buddhism and the ultimate purpose of Buddhism.

    Yes, everybody always love monks! If everyone understands the sphere of cause and effect – that simple law which says that one reaps what one sows – and that we learn to avoid planting causes for either the heavens or hells! If we are not able to plant the seed for our future contact with the Dharma, the monks would be in a better position in their wholesome actions to show us how to do that. Although many of the practices may not be the direct instant cause of buddhahood, but, such seeds as nurtured by the wholesome conduct and cultivation way of the monks will lead to the way of enlightenment. That is why, all people do always love and have deep respects for monks, especially our Bodhisattva-Guru, Rinpoche since his early childhood days, as revealed in his famous “The Promise” book. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  7. Sofi on Jun 4, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    This post is quite interesting in a way that most of us have similar feelings towards the Sangha. It also bought back memory of how I wanted to be a nun at age 16. At that time its the life as a Christian nun that had my interest. Of course that din happen and now being sangha member is out of the question with family to take care of. That is why Sangha members have my utmost respect.
    I have noticed Rinpoche always seem happier when in company of Sangha members. It is really a blessing to see Keihara having a growing number of aspiring sanqha and definitely in the future a full fledge sanqha community just like Gaden. And this is all due to the blessings of Rinpoche. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing the dharma to us selflessly.

  8. Choo Weng Loong on May 30, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    My utmost respect to the Sangha who not only renounce but also spread the Dharma . As an object of refuge I prostrate . May Kechara produce more & more Sangha members in the future

  9. andrew on May 30, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Me too love seeing monks

  10. Datuk May on May 30, 2015 at 12:53 pm

    I have great reverence and love for the monastic order. They are the element of our refuge. They renounce and study and preserve the Dharma so that the Dharma can be taught to sentients for the last 2600 years and more eons to come.

    My greatest respect to all Sangha, the vows they hold for the supremacy and perfection of Lord Buddha’s teachings.

  11. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on May 30, 2015 at 12:27 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this post. I also love to see monks and always want to receive blessings from monks and Sangha community. They are objects for refuge and blessings as they have renounced all the worldly concerns and affair to focus on Dharma practice 24/7. May all the Sangha communities continue to grow and live long for the benefits of all sentient beings.

  12. Shelly Tai on May 28, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the important of sangha community . I always curious what is the role of a monk or nun after knowing Kechara from all these teaching I now really appreciate the sangha community because without them there will be no dharma.

  13. Stella Cheang on May 28, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    Sangha renounce all the enjoyment in life to preserve dharma, it is something that we have to be grateful for. They are the object of reference for us to learn what is the correct conduct to practice dharma and renunciation. Hopefully one day Kechara will have her own monastery and we will not have to go far to be a sangha.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.

    Humbly and sincerely,
    Stella

  14. Lum Kok Luen on May 28, 2015 at 9:25 am

    Monks are part of the Three Jewels. Without the Sangha, Dharma will not flourish. Therefore, as Rinpoche shared during the dana offering in Bangkok, it will be very meritorious to make offerings to the Sangha as it is a perfect balance – we, as lay people cannot do what the Sangha does and the Sangha can’t do what we as secular people do.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and reminding us again of your wonderful teaching in Bangkok.

    Yours humbly

    It’s definitely an imprint from Rinpoche’s previous life for having such an affectionate towards monks.

    The monks renounce to focus on their spiritual path and go all the way on Buddha’s teaching in return just want to benefits the people that still stuck in the samsara. It’s rare to see monk in this country and i believe it’s getting lesser now days due to the delusion from the samsara. For us that have the opportunity to meet one we should take this good opportunity to make offering to the ordained person for us to collect merits and inspire to leave our attachment for real eternal happiness.

    It’s a great practice and I thank Rinpoche for showing us and explain on why we need to respect and make offering to the holy monks.

  16. Sadi on Feb 21, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    I did not know much about the three jewels had it not been for this blog. Although my knowledge is not deep and real, this blog has still given me an awareness and that’s good enough for me. Thank you Rinpoche and students. I like the diversity of topics covered here too. Thumbs up.

    谢谢仁波切分享,想要成为出家人不容易,想要成为有名出家人更不容易。所谓的出家人就是要六根清净,没有三昧耶,放下所有的执着和贪,憎,痴。所以想成为出家人一点也不容易。但我们看到出家人我们应该尊敬他们或者可以供养他们三宝,累积功德。

  18. Julia Tan on Aug 1, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Namo Guru Beh , Namo Buddha Ya, Namo Dharma Ya , Namo Shangha Ya. Grateful to Buddha created a spiritual community to let those who wanted to practice dharma can stay together so that they can all shared and practiced together. Most importantly this was created so that the practitioners can stay in an environment that they can enjoy their Buddhist way of lives.
    Every time when I see monks, I folded my hands. I loved seeing many monks meditating together. I find it very peaceful and very compassion energy. Just like seeing someone that I know will never harm me.

  19. bengkooi on Sep 14, 2011 at 7:16 am

    I read this post sometime last year, and was a little envious that so many had the opportunity to give dana to the monks in Bangkok with Rinpoche. Its something that I have always wanted to do, but did not have the chance to back in Kuala Lumpur. So I was really happy to be able to give dana offerings to the monks this time around in Bangkok, with a teaching and commentary by Rinpoche.

    As Rinpoche says:
    ” It is a chance for the lay people to participate in the spiritual practice of the monks. You support the monks to do their studies, practice, meditations and teachings. You gain the merit for sponsoring their activities, in this case through food to put it simply. They do what you cannot and you do what they do not do..it is a perfect balance. Every activity a monk does for the community, you contributed to it…the merit comes from supporting the sangha and continuance of the Dharma. The sangha renounces samsara to focus on study, practice, teaching and serving others. They don’t waste time on wordly activities and do Dharma part time, they do it full time so they can put their full energies into their practice and in this way keep the Dharma alive due to their full attention given to it. Hence you are supporting their 100% commitment towards the Dharma. They do you a great service because without them putting their full energy into the Dharma, who will learn, practice, teach and keep the Dharma alive? ”

  20. Anila on Aug 14, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    During my very young days I too have that sort of feeling towards Spirituality. But also towards Buddhist monks and nuns. And even Christian nuns and monks too. I was educated in the Convent School. During my school days I did not know about Buddhism except reading the Bible. And I thought I could become one ofthe Catholic nuns when I grow up. I like going to church. But today I end up not as a Catholic Ordained nun but as a Buddhist Nun. That also tells me that all things and wishes can change and are impermanent. I know as a nun I have not lived up to Rinpoche’s expectations. But will make an effort to learn.

    • patriciasnodgrass on Mar 26, 2014 at 9:31 pm

      Anila, I felt exactly the same as you did. As a child living in Dallas, I saw Catholic nuns and was so attracted to them. I was not catholic but was attracted to them anyway. When I finally saw Buddhist monks and nuns, something very powerful moved within me. I want to be a nun more than anything in the world, and that yearning has followed me throughout this current life. I still yearn to be ordained, even now I live the life of a nun even though no one has yet heard my vows. Yesterday, I was traveling with a secular friend and she was very concerned about me. She wanted me to give up my aspiration and go out and get a full time job and stop practicing Dharma so much. She is afraid my husband will die and I will starve to death if I didn’t abandon my aspirations now. I cannot do that. And death doesn’t frighten me so much. Patrul Rinpoche once said that the best death was one in a lonely cave. I don’t care, as long as I can see the stars.

    Thierry, what a lovely heartfelt sharing… 🙂 i’m sure someone who feels exactly as you did will be moved by your openness… thank you.

  22. thierryfornow on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    I grew up with the same feeling, and looking back now, I feel like I have missed many opportunities to engage in Dharma earlier in my life. As a child, I wanted to be a monk, I wanted to do retreat, I was longing for it. Many a time I saw monks, and even asian monks back in Belgium where I grew up. But I have this huge downfall up to this day: I never ask for things (help, assistance, etc…), I always wait for people to ask me.
    Many a time have I seen monks and I’d still be attracted, even way in my thirties, but never approached them, when I would see a caucasian wearing the robes of a buddhist monk, I would want to go to him and ask many questions, yet I never did, I never acted. Out of sheer arrogance.
    I am not saying this here to talk about my self, I am saying this because, there might be someone like me reading this, someone younger that feels the same and is yet to act; please don’t wait until someone presents spirituality to you on a silver plater, you might not be as lucky as I was eventually. Don’t wait for something you can’t be sure will happen to you in this life, create the causes for you to engage in a spiritual life, do it now. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor!

  23. David Lai on Jul 8, 2010 at 3:00 am

    Monks are so beneficial because they are they are 100 percent commited to the Dharma 24 seven. It is this level of commitment that Dharma can grow in a any place based upon their sacred commitment. What makes them commit is their motivation and the amazing vows that they uphold. Hence, a monk who holds onto his vows purely is a worthy object of offerings and a source of spiritual inspiration and their robes become a powerful protection from interferences.
    In this post, Rinpoche talks of joy of making offerings to monks and joy in seeing them and so forth probably reflects a deep imprint of numerous lifetimes of being pure monks. It takes one with tremendous amount of merit to see monks as a source of joy unlike what many modern people think. If anybody makes the resolution to become a monk or nun, it is generally frowned upon and thought of as escaping social responsibility or having failed in worldly affairs. It is sad because there is so little support for the Sangha.
    People generally don’t see the courage of those wishing to pursue monasticism and the incredible merit to do so and how much it will benefit the family, which usually is the source of critcism. Hence, we must support our members of Sangha and especially our Guru who works so hard to perpetuate the Dharma.

  24. ngeowchin on Jul 8, 2010 at 12:25 am

    I am happy to share Rinpoche’s respect and love for monks since when I was young. I can’t even explain because in my time during the 60’s there were lots of Chinese movies that portray monks in bad light,there were also some scandals involving monks etc but it did not reduce my reverence for them.
    I remembered Rinpoche’s very meaningful explanation to us during a book club talk that we should respect monks for their courage to wear the robes even if they have faults.
    Of course its not only about the attire ,actors wear it , no problem. Wearing robes come with holding vows.The more than two hundred over vows that a fully ordained monk holds to entitle him to don the robes is not what an ordinary person would have courage to do.In all humility, that is enough reason for me to respect them.

  25. Paris on Jul 6, 2010 at 1:20 am

    I had the immense luck and merit to be with Rinpoche once on a trip to Bangkok… one morning, he dug us up at 5am to go make dana offerings to the monks in Khao San Road. We were none to chuffed about waking up that early in the morning but the experience, once we got there, was incredible. I loved it so much that I’ve made a point of digging myself up at 5am again every other time that I’ve been to Bangkok from then on, to go make offerings to the monks again.
    Rinpoche’s huge heartfelt respect and love of the sangha was so clear – though he stands so tall at 6foot2, and most of the Thai monks are but half his height, Rinpoche would bow down low enough to be “below” their height. He had to almost fold himself in half to do this, but his humility evoked so much awe in us. Even Rinpoche, such a highly-esteemed Lama, who receives so much praise, offerings and respect himself, offers his own deepest respect, love and humility to other Sangha, all of whom he doesn’t even know. That morning, we spent thousands and thousands of baht making offerings, all sponsored by Rinpoche himself, with some contributions by those of us who were there.
    It was a most humbling lesson and most of all, an apt reminder that this how much reverence, humility and respect we should have for the three jewels and all that they represent: our own spiritual journey and enlightened potential.

  26. Elena on Jul 5, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    I can vouch for the fact Rinpoche loves making offerings to the sangha…in fact, 63 people can! Four years ago, in 2006, Rinpoche took 63 pilgrims to Gaden where they made offerings of robes and Manjushri statues to both Gaden Shartse and Jangtse…that’s 3000 monks in total! It isn’t the first time Rinpoche has made offerings to the sangha – he previously also offered large statues to both monasteries, including a 4-armed Chenrezig and a statue of the 5th Dalai Lama.
    In fact!, offerings to the sangha is what led Rinpoche to first come to Malaysia. Lati Rinpoche (who sadly recently passed into clear light) asked Rinpoche to come to Malaysia to teach, to raise funds for living quarters for 35 monks in Phukjang Khamtsen. Although Rinpoche didn’t want to leave Gaden and preferred to stay in retreat, he recognised the importance of coming here…and he knew it would be a great honour to make such significant offerings to the sangha so he came 🙂
    So yeah, offerings to the sangha (and guru devotion!) is the reason why we have Rinpoche here with us today. See, from giving and making offerings, many great things can arise! 🙂

    This is an interesting read. When I grew up, I heard about paranormal activities in tunnels. Ialways thought that these are some kind of Asian believes. However, it seems that similar stories happen all over the world. Tunnels do always relate to paranormal activities. This article introduces a few famous creepy tunnels from all around the world with stories and photos. Hope you would enjoy reading it.

    I am fortunate to come across this beautiful old post of His Eminence Kyabje Lati Rinpoche. H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche has given many teachings and initiations for his fortunate students and had benefitted countless students. He has dedicated his whole life mainly on dharma practice and giving teachings. He has travelled extensively, benefiting dharma students in various parts of the world as requested from many countries in Europe and America. Our Guru too have received many tremendous teachings,and personal advice from this great master. H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche has authored many important books on Tibetan Buddhism. At the age of 88, H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche entered clear light, leaving a legacy behind him.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and those rare pictures of the cremation of the holy body of H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche.

    Wonderful teachings of the meaning of OM MANI PADME HUNG. The Om Mani Padme Hung mantra is at the heart of many Buddhist traditions. When one recite the mantra Om Mani Padme Hung to oneself, it invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. It will then transform our impure body, speech, and mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama again says it’s possible to have two Panchen Lamas

    Isn’t it great that the Dalai Lama had declared the China chosen Panchen Lama is a real reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama. It is no surprise given that this Panchen Lama’s enlightened actitivies had and is still greatly benefitting hundreds of thousand of people with the Dharma and practices. Find out more details of his recognition.

    It is time for Nechung to retire already. He has been the state oracle giving His Holiness the Dalai Lama advice and whose advice has been creating problems since the 13th Dalai Lama’s time. It was Nechung’s advice that actually led the 13th Dalai Lama to pass into clear light prematurely.

    Another example will be His Holiness’s escape from Tibet to India. Nechung took trance and told His Holiness the stay back in Tibet and there is no need for His Holiness to leave. However, Dorje Shugden oracle took trance and told His Holiness to leave Tibet immediately and even gave details on how they should leave Tibet.

    Luckily they heed Dorje Shugden advice and left Potala Palace heading towards to India. That very night, the Chinese invaded Potala Palace and if His Holiness heeds Nechung’s advice, he would be in grave danger. This shows the unreliability of Nechung’s advice recently.

    Dorje Shugden has a minister called Kache Marpo who is an emanation of Hayagriva which means Kache Marpo is also an enlightened protector. When the Oracle takes trance of Dorje Shugden, Dorje Shugden can only stay for a short while because his energy is very strong and he is not able to talk. Hence, Kache Marpo becomes the voice of Dorje Shugden. The Oracle and take trance of Kache Marpo and deliver messages to people on behalf of Dorje Shugden.

    Many people suffer from the Dorje Shugden ban, Dorje Shugden followers regardless if they are Tibetans or not, they are discriminated against. They are segregated from the so-called ‘mainstream’, the Dalai Lama group. For me, I actually gain a lot from the ban. I don’t mean to say the ban is very beneficial or it is good, but there are lessons I have learnt from the ban.

    If there was no ban, I would never be able to really learn about what Guru Devotion is why is it so important. It also made me realise things are not always easy, it teaches us to value what we have and not to give up no matter how hard or difficult the situation might be. Our Guru’s promise to us is enlightenment, it is priceless and extremely precious. Hence, we should never abandon our teacher or give up the practice he gives us. I hope the ban can be lifted very soon so everyone can focus on Dharma practice and not the politics surrounding Dorje Shugden controversy.

    Women are always seen by society as the weaker ones, many still think their job is to take care of the family. Many high positions in a company are held by men because women are seen less capable. However, look at Dr. R. Nyamaa, she was the Mongolian pioneer Ophthalmologist, pioneer Doctor of Tuberculosis, Scientist, Honorary Professor of Medical University and Honorary Doctor of Mongolia and Folk Doctor. Women are equally capable as men, they have to be given the same opportunity to strive in the field the choose. We are in the 21st century, gender should not be a factor that stops people from pursuing what they want.

    Wow….saffron is such a medicinal spice with so many amazing benefits. Such as for sleeping disorder, treatment of cancer, intestinal gas , depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and so forth. It seem that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world and it has been revered for its medicinal properties since ancient times. The aroma and flavour of saffron is unique and difficult to describe. It is an extremely labor-intensive crop. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus. Great information to know that saffron is added to the water offerings on our shrine making the offerings more rich and beautiful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    As a child Rinpoche showed sign of speciality in a way. Rinpoche has had suffered abuses, problems and sufferings since young. Rinpoche has had experienced much more than anyone else. All the sufferings Rinpoche had gone through merely for the sake of preserving the Dorje Shugden lineage and to purify the obstacles arising from future practitioners and people he can benefit. Whatever Rinpoche encountered did not discourage Rinpoche from spreading Dharma to everyone of us and across the globe. Rinpoche’s guru devotion has inspired him to keep moving. We have Rinpoche to thanks for bringing Dharma to Malaysia. We are fortunate to learn, practice Dharma in this life time . With folded hands thank you Rinpoche.
    Thank you Pastor David Lai for this beautiful write up.

    Interesting first time hearing this….. Buddhist monk hitting people with a broom to purify and clearing one’s obstacles . Different religion and faith have their own way of purifying and blessing. A more usual form of Thai blessing would be sprinkling water on the fore head. A monk who was seen forcefully hitting temple-goers heads with a broom is normal to them. Even though the smacking may look violent, but it didn’t harm anyone recording to the Buddhist monk. I have seen in Chinese temple, one or two occasion that the deity in trance using branches of leaves hitting temple-goers to bless them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

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

On January 26, 2019, Venerable Arjia Rinpoche who is a close friend of the Dalai Lama asked the Tibetans to stop discriminating against people who practice Dorje Shugden and regionalism. His speech called for unity for the preservation of Tibet\'s unique culture and religion and all Tibetans should be friendly with each other regardless of religion and regional origins. His speech is powerful and much needed at this time. Very beautiful. Thank you Arjia Rinpoche. Please see here: https://bit.ly/2CdOz1A

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

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