Practice ONLY when you get a raise?

Aug 1, 2011 | Views: 951

Spiritual practice is not having an altar, keeping a Kuan Yin statue, spiritual practice is not building temples, spiritual practice is not just reading a dharma book or giving donations to a Spiritual teacher. That is not spiritual practice. Spiritual practice is not putting a joss stick in a temple, waiting for long-life, beauty, getting happiness and to get rich. That is not spiritual practice, that is wrong, wrong, wrong spiritual practice.

Spiritual practice of any type is the improvement of one’s attitude, the improvement of one’s mind. A spiritual person must be characterized by the effort to become more compassionate, more kind, more nice, more forgiving, more patient.

What is the characterization of a spiritual person? We have to accept our responsibilities; we have to accept what has happened – that we have done it and not blame others anymore. And to make efforts to come out of our situation. That is spiritual practice.

Number one, acceptance of your situation on the basis of logic. Number two, to let go of attachment. To let go of the things that do not matter that much. I’m not saying to you, to shave off your head and, and wear this and run away with me to the monastery, that is not practical, but you can shave off ignorance, hatred and desire, and impatience and anger.

We should start these practices, not tomorrow, not the day after, not when you have more time, not when you get a raise, not when you retire, not when you have more free time, that day will never come. That is simple, lazy procrastination. We should start these practices today.

    Everything has its time and pace, but where practicing spirituality is concerned, time does not come into question. It is a process through practice that is a lifelong work in progress. Throughout the course you’ll discover inward thinking reveals all this is withIN and withOUT. And with that knowing, everything becomes calm, positive, clear and lit. And, life feels complete.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the short and profound teaching.

    What Rinpoche said is so true that firstly we need to accept our situation and what we had done in the past.

    After accepting the current situation we should find way to improve ourselves, and making ourselves out from the current situation.

    Thank you

    I like this article very much. Supported by death meditation, I think one can comprehend this better! Thank you Rinpoche.

    Yes, everything start in the moment after reading this. If we wait and drag our feet, how long more do we want to start to be a better person, to be a more responsible person? How much time do we think we have? Accident and tomorrow, we would never know which one comes first. The change has to start now, if not now, when?

    As Rinpoche said we have to dispel our ignorance,hatred,desire,impatience and anger. For me, I would have to also dispel part of my worst quality which are LAZY PROCRASTINATION and LACK OF INTEGRITY. No point saying “I want to change and change” but take no action on it.

  5. Joy on Mar 15, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    This is so true… because over the years of being in Dharma I have seen and heard people saying this exact reasons for not being able to do the Dharma. Some of them can’t even commit to saying a some prayers for their own well being! And yet they wish for everything that is wrong in their lives to be right. Some easily and quickly stray away due to attachments and desire… thinking they can support and still practice once they have made that money, made that name, gone for that holiday, closed that business deal… more often than not… it is the opposite… they go further and further away until we never hear from them at all. And when we do hear from them they are in the same suffering boat and sometimes even worst from when they were in Dharma.

    I guess this reminds me of the advice that Rinpoche often give which is that when you are about and going to do something good… there will always be obstacles that will arise to stop you. This is your negative karma manifesting. When this happens… we must be aware and never give in to the foes of samsara. One way to help is to do serkym and prayers to our Dharma Protector Setrap to always guide us.

    Very profound and thank you for the reminder on spiritual practice Rinpoche.

  7. soonhuat on Nov 13, 2012 at 8:42 am

    yes Rinpoche, I am trying hard to shave off the bad habits such as hatred and attachment. it is not easy as the bad habits could have been accumulated since past few life. I am trying hard. The religion practice is vehicle to get rid of these bad habits.

  8. patsy on Nov 11, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Most people think that dharma practice is going to a temple, offer a candle or flower, recite some prayers and chant some mantras and that’s it. However, real dharma practice is about letting go and transformation and improvement of the mind. As Rinpoche advised, we should not procrastinate and give all sorts of excuses but to put in effort to get out of the comfort zone of laziness and work towards the betterment of our attitude to be more compassionate, caring, kind, forgiving and tolerant

    许多人对灵修有许多不正确的看法,以为灵修就必须饱读佛经、每天烧香拜佛、对世间一切看得比云还淡。殊不知,有灵性修养的人就是做一个比昨天更善良、更慈悲、更有耐性的人。的确,做人的态度和心识的没有比昨天好,还修什么呢。

    然而,最难的不是每天记得做水供,每天记得坐仪轨,其实是每天要比昨天更能扛起自己的责任,对自己负责,好事发生再自己身上要负责当然不是问题,然而,不好的事发生在自己身上,首先要学会不把责任推卸道别人身上,接下来,就算通过了第一关,要放下,放下失去了、失败了、丢脸了、错过了等等等,其实并不容易。一个衡量自己有没有比以前放下更多的方法是,一年前我每天早上醒来第一件事都在懊恼同一样发生了的事,这样可以发生半个月。半年后,懊恼的时间缩短成一个星期,之后,是三天,在之后两天,然后偶尔想起。最后应该是当自己确认了责任在于自己,然后自己可以放下作出错误或愚蠢行为/决定的自己,然后,放下前一刻的自己。

    我朝这个方向努力。还有,确认哪些是声明无关紧要的事,然后放下不执着……

    祈愿仁波切常住世,健康快乐。

    Many times I have been advised from the many people I came across said that spiritual practice is what we have on altar, making offerings, doing good, contribute to charities and praying. How ignorant I was when I found out it is more than that when I came across Kechara years ago. It is not about what we have on altar is how much we have put into practised and internalised what we have heard and learnt base on the holy teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa. How much have we improved day by day.

    Looking at the picture above, I kind of miss my previous job with a marketing company of pitching in the streets. It really helps me to move away from my comfort zone and always maintain a positive energy and moving on my feet and accept rejections, long hours, harsh weather and goal settings.. I can say I learn alot from Appco.

  13. Elsie Toy on Sep 14, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Dearest Rinpoche

    Many Thanks for sharing this with us and changing many of our misconception on practices. It is hard for me to control my temper, my foul mouth and harsh words at times especially when i am lazy in my daily prayers it. Sometime it gives me the “shiok” feeling to use a bad language and it kinds of easy the heavy feeling off my chest even it didnt mean to use it on others especially in my vehicle due t rude drivers and/or express how I really feel. I will be more mindful each and cut my attachements to beauty and thinking I will remain young forever and convenience and procastination especially in my daily sadhana,,,.and try to be compassionate to my students and the ones who always care for me. thank you for the wake up call…..

    In the golden words of our guru, Tsem Rinpoche, “spiritual practice of any type is the improvement of one’s mind. I am not saying to you, to save off your head and, wear this and run away with me to the monastry, that is not practical, but you can shave off ignorance, hatred and desire and impatience and anger.” Therefore, spiritual practice actually helps us to connect to ourselves, our neighbours, the Devine and the Whole Creation! As our guru has urged us no further procrastination should be given, these practices should start off immediatedly. Procastination is one of the destruction threats to one’s progress in life and overcoming it is the most important steps to take develope our own personal growth.

  16. KH Ng on Aug 2, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Whether we are full time, part time, volunteering or working outside, we should practice the Dharma regardless. Improvement of attitude and our mind does not need to wait for the situation to change ie when we are older, when the kids has grown up, when we have enough money or when we are have retired. We need to practice precisely because the situation may not change, we may not get to see the kids get older, we may never have enough money (who would?), we may die tomorrow.
    The improvement of our attitude and our mind will lead to all that if we have the Karma for it. Hence, by practicing we give ourself a chance to achieve what we want and more importantly to improve our surroundings for our family, friends, colleagues to be happier (one less grumpy person hehe) and can actually have very positive effect in all that we do and come into contact with. In that way, we help ourselves and others. Just by changing ourselves.

    That; to me is much better then going to gym, golf, good food etc. All that we do to make ourselves “HAPPIER”. We can still do all that, but if we just change our attitude, be kind, be compassionate, help others, be harmonious and change our mind set, we can be far happier and for a much longer time….

  17. Any Loke on Aug 2, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for posting all the useful quote lately, they really have a lot of help to get out of my ignorant and full of attachment self. These realization will try to keep taming my foolish mind and my action and speech, will try my best to change. But, is so hard to face the situation and really painful to see the things we have done. I’m really sorry to people that I have harm and I do hope, the practice that start from now onwards can be benifit to others and not harm anything and anyone else.

    • may ong on Aug 5, 2011 at 2:52 pm

      Dear Any
      I have seen you made effort on learning a lot well from pujas and I sincerely hope situation will change for you when you start to practice the dharma by taking baby steps one day at a time. We will continue to support you on this path but don’t give up on any effort you made so far.
      From one of your Puja friend

      “Action speaks louder than words…”

      “Whenever I associate with anyone,
      May I view myself as lowest of all,
      And, from the depths of my heart,
      May I cherish others as supreme!”

      “You may be in Dharma, is Dharma in you?”

  18. ST on Aug 2, 2011 at 6:15 am

    Rinpoche,

    If spiritual practice wasn’t personal and learned only through experience in the doing, if only the mind could be freed from bodily senses, if only there were more gurus in the world to spread the Dharma teachings to the many who has yet been given the chance to develop their spirituality, your words of teaching would have been better understood by those who wants to practice. Unfortunately, the spiritual journey is one we have to take on our own with help from others along the way.

  19. Rafael Ruiz on Aug 2, 2011 at 4:43 am

    I love this! Very true and profound!! Thank you Rinpoche!

    I wish you long life and happiness

    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.

    Master Hongyi, a multitalented Buddhist Monk famous for being a talented writer and musician . He was one of the most celebrated and admired Buddhist monks in modern Chinese history. Born in wealthy family yet he choose to he was ordained as a Buddhist monk. Already, even as a child, developed an extraordinarily where he could memorised Buddhist text. Master Hongyi dedicated the rest of his life to Buddhist practice and became one of the most prominent monks of 20 Century China. Interesting read.

    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 .

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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

All attendees are paying homage to Rinpoche and Buddhas before the start of our weekly Dorje Shugden puja. Outwardly, it seems that Dorje Shugden helps practitioners overcoming their obstacles and problems but ultimately Dorje Shugden’s supreme purpose is to help practitioners on their path to Enlightenment. Do join in our weekly DS puja, every Saturday @3 pm at Jalan Seang Tek, Penang. ~by Jacinta

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment
