Question on Jealousy

Sep 4, 2014 | Views: 4,557

Jealousy makes you unsettled, have no peace, be unhappy and act in ways that make you deteriorate and be alone. How can you be jealous of other people who work hard and do well? They deserve their efforts and they ‘make’ you upset because they remind you of what you’re not willing to do. How can you purposely make it hard for other people to do their job because you don’t have their results? Wrong method. In the end no one likes you or your work. You will be alone, bitter and despised. Jealousy is a thief that robs you of peace, friendships, respect, and growth. Fight your jealousy, not the people who succeed. Fight your jealousy and not your friends. – Tsem Rinpoche

 

In answer to Plinio Tsai’s question from facebook:

Rinpoche, how should the person stop the mind that wishes to compare ones own qualities with others qualities and feel bad about it? How someone applies rejoice instead of comparision?

Transcript for the video ‘Jealousy’

Proofread by Sean

I’m recording a message from my post on Facebook – I just posted up on “Jealousy”, and it will be on my blog in a few minutes and you can see the answer there, but Plineo Tsai (sic) – and I hope I’m pronouncing your name correctly, and if I’m not I’m sorry – asked Rinpoche “How should the person stop the mind that wishes to compare one’s own qualities with other qualities and feel bad about it? How someone applies rejoice instead of comparison?”.

I’m not going to go into a long detail about it but I’m going to give a little bit of an answer and I’ll put it up directly. Jealousy is an emotion that when we see someone doing, acting, performing something and they get good results, perhaps it could be praise, perhaps it could be, you know, rewards, perhaps it could be recognition, deep down inside, we don’t feel happy. We don’t feel happy, and we feel unsettled and we start seeing that person for their achievements and perhaps what, how it affects us. And it’s not so much how that person affects us, it’s about what that person did that they got what we wanted, and we didn’t get, that affects us. So jealousy is really not about another person, it’s about what someone else does, and that resurrects, or brings alive, or brings to the surface, or brings to our attention what we didn’t do or wish to do, or couldn’t do, or couldn’t accomplish.

So what’s very important to remember in this case is the Eight Worldly Dharmas and also karma, that’s very, very important. And the reason for that is because when other people work for something, when other people put their effort in and they sacrifice something else and put an effort to get something, we have to realise that they put in the hard work, they put in the time, they put in the effort, they put in the sacrifice. They put in what we were not willing to put in or not enough, or maybe not able to. So they got the result, when they get the result, we must feel happy. We must rejoice for them. Why? It’s a democratic karmically driven world.

A karmically democratic – a democratically karmically driven world is – what, what, what do I mean by that? What I mean by a karmically democratic -driven world is that if you create the karmic causes, you can have the same results. So someone else creates the karmic causes, they can have those results. So if we truly believe in a universal philosophy thinking of karma, we have to rejoice. Why do we have to rejoice? Very simple. They create the karma; they got the results. How come if we do something good, and we get the good results – wouldn’t we want other people to be happy? Wouldn’t we want other people to rejoice? When we do good things, when we do positive things, and we get the good results, and other people are not happy, then we feel sad? Because we say, look, I sacrificed so much, I gave up so much, I really put so much effort and I’m still not recognized, I’m not appreciated. I’m not thanked and they say bad things, they feel jealous.

Well, look, same thing goes the other way around. If we truly take refuge in karma, then jealousy will become less. Why is that? ‘Cause karmically, that person created the causes to get what they are getting. And on a very universal level, universal level, you get what you work for. So if that person has worked three, four hours extra everyday for example in the office, to be recognized, to be accepted, to, to have their work become well known or to become a person that people respect, and you’re not willing to put in three, four hours because you’re, you want to do something else, you know, you want to have your own free time or ‘me time’ or whatever you want to label it, well, if you don’t get the recognition that they get, you shouldn’t be jealous, because they put in the three extra hours, and that could be 21 hours a week, and you didn’t. So if you put in the 21 hours extra per week and you get the recognition and appreciation, wouldn’t you want everyone else to be happy?

So therefore karmically speaking it’s like this: if they create the karma, if they create the karma, and they get the result, you have to accept it on a very deep level. The deep level is that karmically they have created the results. So if you’re jealous of that, if you’re unhappy about that, then you’re truly not accepting karma. You’re truly not accepting the way that things work. You see, because you can’t not put in the hours, put in the sweat, the tears, and pay your dues and still want the results. That’s not logically possible. So therefore when we see other people with good results, when we see other people, they get respect and they get praise, and they’re appreciated and people really like them for what they’re doing, we should in fact rejoice. When we rejoice, and we contemplate on karma and the karmic results, when we rejoice, what happens? We create the karma to start countering our jealousy.

It will not change overnight. It will not disappear overnight. It will not go away overnight.  But it will start going away because we start recognising where our mind is coming from. So therefore if we take refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha, out of the three refuge, the most important is the Dharma, because the Dharma is what really saves us from us. The Dharma is what really saves our loved ones from us. It is what saves the loved ones from us harming anyone around us; them or anyone else. So when we take refuge in the Dharma, one of it is to recognise karma.

When you recognise karma, you will accept the fact that other people can do better ‘cause they put in the effort. Look, if you’re psychologically always scared, you don’t want to offend people, and you don’t want to push yourself to do more because you don’t want to offend, your fear of not offending people offends people. Why? Eventually, you’re not doing what you’re supposed to do, you’re not speaking what’s on your mind, you’re not pushing yourself to the next level and instead of worrying about one or two people you might offend although you’re not wanting to, you’re not benefitting 10 or 20 people you could have, if you’d spoken up or said something. So therefore, when you are so worried about offending people, you’re so worried about other people in the wrong way, you don’t benefit many more people that you could have.

So similarly if someone who speaks up, they’re direct, they’re open and they’re very honest, and then because of that they get praise, because of that they get appreciation, because of that people listen to their opinions, because of that they make headways – you shouldn’t be jealous, because you’re attached to your face, you’re attached to your appearance as opposed to benefitting others. No one can speak one word and everybody agrees, but if the majority gets benefit, why not?

So similarly, another thing that we need to consider is that when we are jealous, we are not doing something to benefit others, we are not doing something that because we want to help others, we‘re not doing something because we’re having the other person’s benefit in mind. For example, if we are doing something to benefit others, then it must be free of the Eight Worldly Dharmas. One of them is to receive praise, or appreciation, or name, or fame, or ‘thank yous’ or, or a position.  Now if we’re doing things with the motivation of ourselves, pretending or feigning or thinking we want to benefit others, but that’s not really the motivation, then we will not feel happy if we don’t get appreciated. We will not feel happy if people don’t thank us. Why? Very great masters, very great practitioners, very great people, people that are not even, how to say, of a religious background, but when they do good things and when they do wonderful things, the person being benefitted, the person being happy, the person being relieved of their particular problem, that makes that other person happy, they don’t need recognition and all that.

So therefore, we can check our minds: what are we doing it for? If another person does something good and we feel jealous, definitely it is a clear indication that we are not doing our actions with the benefit of others in mind. That we are doing our actions for one of the Eight Worldly Dharmas, for example, praise and recognition, or material benefit. So if we always live our life according to the Eight Worldly Dharmas, we will always have jealousy, we will always have our, the lack of peace of mind, or sadness, or loneliness, or rejection, or moodiness. One of the direct results that one can have as a result of having the Eight Worldly Dharmas intact, which is very bad, is moodiness. Your mood will go up and down, because when someone else gets recognised and you don’t, you’ll feel down, you’ll feel unhappy.

And the bad thing is, if we let this jealous energy or jealous thought or mind or attitude remain, it’s very harmful. Why? Then pretty soon, whatever somebody does that’s good, we can’t take it. Whatever positive comes out for other people, we can’t take it. Pretty much we can’t hear any good news, we can’t hear any good things, we can’t even relay to anything vaguely related to us that happened to someone else that’s good. Why? Because it would resurrect what we did not do, or what we should have done. And then we become bitter. And then we become angry, then we become unhappy, and then we start rejecting people, we don’t want to hear news, or we might even start gossip or slander. Gossip, slander, schism, comes from jealousy. Why? They’re doing something you didn’t do, they’re doing something  or got the result of something you didn’t wish to do, you didn’t put in the effort, or you didn’t try; or you try, you didn’t succeed. So instead of rejoicing for them, we say negative things. We create slander, we create unhappiness. We create words that make other people feel not so good, or we attempt to make them not so-, feel not so good about something that happened good for others.

I repeat, when we talk schism, when we talk down, when we put other people’s achievement down, and we’re not happy, it is not about the other person, it is about us and our jealousy going out of control. When our jealousy goes out of control, pretty much we become bitter, we become angry and we cannot recognise or we don’t wish to recognise and we don’t want other people to have happiness or rewards for what they have done. And that’s very dangerous. And jealousy will make us bitter, it will make us alone, it will make us segregated. And that’s not good, no one deserves that.

So to counter this we need to look deeper into karma and think “Look, the great leaders had the karma to be great leaders. They were humble, they served others, they helped others in their previous lives, therefore they get the result of being able to influence others in a massive way by becoming leaders”. So I rejoice in the leadership, in the leadership of good leaders, I rejoice, I don’t feel jealous. When other people have wealth, it’s because in their previous life they have given. I rejoice for their wealth. When other people have happiness or they have a good relationship, oh I’m so happy, because previously – previous life, this life, whenever – they always spoke words or they always had an attitude or they always did actions to bring people together. Because they did that, now they are together with someone and they don’t have loneliness. I rejoice. I feel very happy. So when we rejoice at the good results of other people, it is a direct counter to our jealousy. And our jealousy will not go away overnight, but it will start to dwindle. Why? ‘Cause we recognise that their success is not our problem. We recognise that good things that happen to others should not be a problem for us. And if it is a problem, the problem is not them, but the problem lies within us.  So very good to recognise karma, to see how karma upgrades in that way.

I wish you good luck, I hope this little explanation will help you. Thank you very much.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the jealousy topic.

    Yes, jealousy is not about our feeling of “unfairness”. It is about our own state of mind. If we are self-centered it will lead to great jealousy from us because we feel unhappy when other people did not do in accordance to our expectations.

    The first time I watched this video was during the adult dharma class, shared by Pastor Gim Lee in 2014. I had watched this video many times especially when I was filled with anger and jealousy. This video keeps reminding me on Eight Worldly Dharma and also Karma.

    Previously, I watched this video very frequently because I got jealous and angry too easily. Since I continue my dharma practise, attending dharma classes and perform sadhanas, these negativities become lesser and lesser. It was a coincidence that I encountered this I video on youtube a few days ago and after re-watching it, I feel a sense of relief that I am a better person now. I am confident that I can continue improving myself with a constant Dharma practise.

    Humbly with folded palm,

    Jealousy is a common human emotion that most of us exhibit. Usually displayed when we see others doing better than us or having the results that we desire. Through Dharma, we learn that we should not develop any prejudgment against others, but we should always rejoice when others achieve something rather than feeling jealous. The achievement of others is due to the hard work they put in which we did not in the first place. If we believe in Karma, we will apprehend that it is due to the cause that a person created therefore he/she enjoys (suffers) the effect of it. Hence, instead of feeling jealous towards others, we should recognize that we must had created the cause for the state we are in right now and we should create the cause to get what we want in the future.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for this sharing. I shall thrive to reinforce this learning in my daily live more.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    Jealousy leads no where and just makes us more upset and unhappy whats the point. We might as well rejoice and create from rejoicing in other people’s good works and deeds. As Rinpoche said when we rejoice for others we create causes to overcome our suffering and jealousy.

    If we don’t want others to be jealous of us habving good things, we have to start with ourselves.

  4. Stella on Sep 23, 2014 at 10:34 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for this profound explanation of Jealousy. I realize that on a deeper level, the true suffering rubs in when we began to talk down the person we are jealous about and the subsequent bitterness that went out of control. It is akin to a drunken man who started getting angry at others and ended up hurting (physically) the other person or even killing another person. The point is, jealousy is the beginning of bitterness that will eventually snowball.

    Rinpoche’s teaching here gives a really good mind transformation method to counter this. It is a matter for us to apply it.

    Thank You, Rinpoche.

  5. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Sep 15, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche’s sharing. it let us closely to look into our mind the reaction of jealousy.Only by contemplating Rinpoche’s teaching only can help us instead felt jealous, how to change it to better motivation and sincere rejoice from bottom of our heart, not a surface feeling.It not only benefit ourself, this valuable value can share to our next generation,

  6. Uncle Eddie on Sep 12, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    If one has obtained the precious fully endowed human body, one has the opportunity to attain liberation and the cessation of sufferings as said in the Buddhist practice. With due respect, as a practicioner, one has no need to be jealous or be envious of anyone. Under the blessed care of a compassionate Dharma teacher, one would be capable of shaping one’s own future by earnestly following the path leading to higher states of birth and ultimately to full enlightenment. The fully endowed “body-mind” should be considered even more valuable than a wish-fulfilling gem; for each moment may be used to work “hard” for the purpose of approaching enlightenment. The possibilities are boundless if one can endlessly work hard to show one’s intense feeling for gaining higher attainment to benefit all beings. In accordance with the teachings,all must recognize this form, realize its great value and rarity, then use its blessed method accordingly to reach its destination! Om mani padme hung.

  7. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 11, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very clear teaching on how jealous arises,
    and with that, how we can learn to effortlessly rejoice.

    When we are caught up in jealousy, our minds are so mired in self-centered thoughts that in our distorted minds, we see that it is all “very unfair” to us. In reality , it’s all “very fair”. Karma works in very democratic ways. People who enjoy happiness or success are enjoying the fruit of their efforts. They have created the causes in positive actions, perhaps, in a previous life.

  8. JP on Sep 11, 2014 at 11:51 am

    This article helps us think on deeper levels of where jealousy arises and why it’s important to curb it. It makes so much sense. We are often so distracted with our “busy-ness” that we don’t really understand the nature of our jealousy and how it will ultimately not serve us.

    On the receiving side of people’s jealousy, it also helped me forgive them for all the difficulties and nastiness they hurled on me especially from people whom I was closed to and only had good thoughts of. They suffer from their attachments to the 8 Worldly Dharmas which are:

    1. Attachment to getting and keeping material things.
    2. Aversion to not getting material things or being separated from them.
    3. Attachment to praise, hearing nice words, and feeling encouraged.
    4. Aversion to getting blamed, ridiculed, and criticized.
    5. Attachment to having a good reputation.
    6. Aversion to having a bad reputation.
    7. Attachment to sense pleasures in general.
    8. Aversion to unpleasant experiences.

    The key to forgiving and letting go is through acquiring knowledge and contemplation. Otherwise, it’s just suppressing our feelings and pretending which becomes a scary time bomb. And this I have also seen many times.

    Thank you my dear guru for expounding the wisdom teachings on jealousy.

  9. Sangreal Arnica on Sep 7, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Such blessed and practical lessons, Rinpoche. I am grateful for this light on this subject. It speaks to my own experiences of both jealousy and envy as more rooted in my own attachments and self-cherishing than in comparing myself to others. I do think jealousy is more harmful than envy. Envy is an observation that what someone else has is desirable and we would like to have it too, now, perhaps without effort. Jealousy on the other hand is an observation that what someone else has is undeserved, and should be taken from them and given to us now, definitely without effort. Both are terrible obstacles to cherishing others and equanimity, but of the two, jealousy seems so much more pernicious and likely to cause serious setbacks on my path. I find meditation on refuge clears both very effectively.Blessings and respectful affection for your gifts of insight and wisdom. Grail.

  10. Ching Siau Lin on Sep 6, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche. Thank you, for clear my doubts and save me from who am not supposed to be.Thank you _/\_

  11. Loh Ann Leong (Penang) on Sep 5, 2014 at 9:09 am

    As such negative thought arises such as jealousy, we shall re-check our minds and thoughts. This is so wonderful, from we have negative channeling to positive when rejoicing for people giving their efforts as in the law of cause and effect.
    Dear Rinpoche, your teachings are so much profounds, and this had pinpoint directs to our weaknesses, thank you so much for that.

  12. Edwin Tan on Sep 5, 2014 at 3:20 am

    It is always the comparison that gives rise to jealousy. I have been training my mind to always appreciate and be happy with what I have, rather than to focus on what others have.

    This way, I can subdue my mind and convince myself that comparing will nevr see to the end. However, it does not mean that I do not work hard to get what I want. If I want to achieve what others have, then I need to realise that I need to work EXTRA harder [if I am not already working hard] to get where others are.

    Allowing jealousy to swallow me is not the way Rinpoche clearly explains in the video 🙂

  13. Pee Bee Chong on Sep 4, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. I have been trying to control my jealousy and I think I am a better person now and will not get jealous of others as easy as before. Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching.

  14. Jyee on Sep 4, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the explanation. I really enjoyed listening to the talk.

  15. Paris on Feb 23, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    Also, Rinpoche has previously also given another teaching on jealousy which is a good complement to this teaching here. It’s a more informal one when we were hanging out in MacDonalds one night! Here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byPq0vOFJw8

  16. Paris on Feb 23, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    I remember someone telling me once how wasteful an energy like jealousy is because we gain absolutely nothing out of it – we just sit there and stew and feel bad about something that we don’t actually do anything about. At a deeper level, it makes us reinforce negative patterns of thinking where we reaffirm our own attachments (to how things should or shouldn’t be) and to what we don’t do or what we tell ourselves we cannot do.

    However, I remember also having a conversation with Rinpoche once about jealousy and envy, and he had explained that in the case of the later, envy, it could actually be turned into something more positive. The slight difference, Rinpoche explained, is that when we feel jealous, we not only feel bad about not having something but we also don’t want that person to have that thing. Envy is a little different in that we covet and want that same thing but we don’t wish anything bad for the other person; we might even be happy for them, but we also want it badly for ourselves. In this case, we can potentially turn it around to something like a good competitive energy, where we push ourselves to achieve the same (without sabotaging any of what the other person already has), if not more.

    If we think in this way, it can be much more empowering, instead of just sitting there and stewing, wishing we had something we didn’t!

    • Joy on Feb 24, 2013 at 4:41 am

      Yes it is really such a waste of our precious time and energy isn’t Paris? At some point in our life before we met Rinpoche and knew about Dharma… we’ve all been that green eyed jealous monsters. But what you said what Rinpoche said about the difference between jealousy and envy is something cool…

      I like knowing that being envious is actually something better cos we can turn it around to push ourselves to achieve something that we really want. Well, it is definitely much better than getting bitter, showing a black face, pouting, throwing tantrums or creating escapism activities to stay stagnant and anti-the world… No one else is suffering except you really and because your energy is so negative… you automatically create a shield that pushes people away. This then can become a collection of bad karma. What is even worse is some people out of extreme jealousy they actually find ways to get you back! Rinpoche have told us many times over that when someone is experiencing something good, we should be quick to rejoice and feel happy for them… especially in Dharma activities, if we rejoice we also collect the merits. So why not play it smart 🙂

  17. Carmen Lin K.M on Sep 15, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    First of all thank you for this explanation on jealousy. What if, jealousy within siblings due to parents’ favoritism to one of the child, even the child does not even contribute and causes many troubles to the family, yet the child was still very much loved and cared by the parents. However, the other child which has pretty much gives everything he can to the family and did not create much troubles to the family was not getting much loved or cared compared to the former, sometimes even the parents will scream and scold the latter over small matters. How can the latter that was neglected overcome the feeling of hurt and being jealous of the former? Does this related to recognition of karma as well?

    Your reply is highly appreciated, thank you.

    • tsemtulku on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:50 am

      Dear Carmen,
      It is for sure the workings of karma. To be born of the same flesh and blood and yet treated differently is the group karma and individual karma at work.

      Group karma is when we are born together in the same situation with others. Individual karma is when we experience things differently although we are in the same environment together with others…that is group and individual karma at work. Since we believe in karma, then it is important for us to accept karma and let go. karma helps us to let go and move on.

      After all since we are adults, we learn to move on and let go. Perhaps growing up was hard in the environment you mentioned, but now we are adults, it’s good we take responsibility for ourselves and move on and not reflect on what happened in the past. We make a new life, new direction and new experiences for ourselves. We become stronger for the better due to our experiences.

      Good luck to you. TR

    Rejoicing for others good work and success is the cheapest form of collecting merits; a lama once taught me. Sounds funny but true. Does not cost one anything!

  19. Astrix on Mar 6, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Tsem Rinpoche, I do realise and aware of my jelously and I compare. When I aware I forcus on my heart do a chanting and bless to those who I jelous with and to those who I make compare. I had been doing this since I aware and realize my weakness. I am very afraid to hurt people where in the same time am hurting myself because am allowing these emotion to harm me and as to others. I stongly felt that am a very danger person. I am doing it cleasing it away honestly its not eassy but I am prepare and I shall continue to purify myself. Listening to your teaching I stongly felt that what am doing is correct but not enough. Thank you for the teaching.

  20. choong li li on Feb 28, 2012 at 10:46 am

    Nice to know of your presence, Rinpoche. I’ve been suffering from some problems almost more than 15 years. I tried to move to a better state of life but I remain stagnant and for some other things especially financially, I got worse. I wish you can help me. I’m a Buddhist. Many people told me that I was being shelled and shelved by someone who doesn’t like us to succeed. I did a lot of prayers. It help but temporary. Then a recur re. I would like to ask help from you Rinpoche. And if I have the chance, I would like to be your disciple. Please help us. thanks

  21. weeliang on May 10, 2011 at 4:19 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the short teaching.
    I have realized that when I rejoice in other people’s success, it pushes me to beat myself. But when I am jealous with other people’s success, I naturally only want to beat the other person. Therefore, all my energy and thoughts are focused on the other person rather than on improving myself to succeed.

    with folded hands,
    Wee Liang

  22. Doreen Teoh on May 6, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for explanation on Jealousy. What about if we feel that there is unfairness or prejudiced situation that is been practise? Is it a similar application or feelings?

  23. anila on Apr 28, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for answering Plinio Tsai question. I am sure it will benefit a lot more people out there and not only we students. I feel that what causes people to have jealousy starts from the mind and also from their Karma. You create the results of unhappiness through your own doing by being jealous. And you cause it. You also can choose to be happy and have a lot of friends by rejoicing for what they have achieved through their hard work. If you don’t have jealousy you won’t feel anger and unhappiness. Your friends will not shy away from you. And you will gain more friends. For jealousy is an enemy and the downfall of people. In the end it does not bring benefit but causes lots of sufferings to the mind which may affect your health also.

    ‘Their success is not your problem’– thanks that is beautifully said. It made me read AL question in a very different way than I would have before I heard it.

  28. Margaretlee on Apr 27, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    Thank you Plinio for posting this question and Rinpoche for giving a short and profound teaching.

    In short, I think we must all comtemplate from time to time the law of karma. Personally I believe jealousy is the worst enemy of all, because from there arises anger and negative speech and actions that would create more negative results for us in the future.

    Learning to rejoice may not seem to be at hand in the beginning but like what Rinpoche has said, if a person’s success has brought much benefit to the majority, then we should all the more rejoice for those who have received the benefits and the hard work the person who has put into it.

    If you cannot put in the effort like the others, the least one can do is to rejoice, rejoice is the best antidode for jealousy.

  29. Den on Apr 27, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    I felt I could really understand that Samsara is a meritocracy from this clear talk. Whoever achieved anything in any way, has done so because they have PAID for the result by their own efforts. Totally fair. If I make the same effort, I can achieve the same result.

    Thinking about practical example, maybe it’s a bit like two people wearing t-shirts. One of them made the effort to wash their shirt in washing powder, rinse it and dry it nicely in the spin dryer, making it lovely and fragrant. The other person wore the same t-shirt for 50 days and it’s pretty bad; he also didn’t take a bath.

    They stand next to each other and the second guy feels jealous because of the nice smell from guy number one.

    But if he makes the same effort, he, too, will smell nice.

    Very natural cause and effect reasons.

    It would be helpful for me to check out the law of karma more to understand better the specific causes of results.

    Thank you to Rinpoche for his extreme dedication to helping others understand and heal their own problems from that understanding.

  30. Adelyn Lim on Apr 27, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this enlightening talk on jealousy. I do understand the karma of it and I was wondering what about feelings of anger towards people who you discover constantly lies or covers up their true actions? Does it mean that it is my bad karma that instills people to lie or are they creating bad karma for themselves in the future?

    • Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Apr 27, 2011 at 4:57 pm

      Dear AL,

      Well it always takes two hands to clap as the saying goes……you have every right to feel angry and hurt for people who lie and cover up their actions, it has occured in my life to me from people and I was hurt too. So I can relate to what you are saying…I realize that I must have done that to others in the past and the karmas comes around full swing like a wheel of sharp weapons back to me and hence I should be patient. . The only thing we can do is be patient and not retaliate back in a negative way to collect more negative karma. It should inspire you to practice dharma and realize everything in samsara’s nature is ultimately going to lead us nowhere. It should inspire to become deep in your dharma work. I wish you the best. TR

  31. Terri on Apr 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    thank u Rinpoche.

  32. Steve Tobias on Apr 27, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche very much for the explanation.

    There are many cases of jealousy where the person one is jealous of holds something as simple as wealth, power, etc., and of course that is subject to change and isn’t an attribute one should be jealous of really. However it’s all covered under Rinpoche’s explanation of karma. It’s the person’s karma, whether it brings a good result or not, or regardless of how the person reacts to it in a good or bad way — best to relate it to one’s own practice; feelings that are triggered to come up automatically can’t be blamed on the outside triggers. Very good, thanks.

  33. Plinio Tsai on Apr 27, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche, I humbly thank you for the amazing and pratical explanation! I have no words to express my gratitude and happiness towards your beautifull explanation…most of all very sharp and efficiently you have point out the self-cherishing mind without saying the terms, you have pointed out Pabongkha Rinpoche words with the eight wordly Dharmas, Patrul Rinpoche and Lama Tsongkhapa about karma and acceptance of law of causality, the text Wheel of Sharp Weapons was beautifully putted in pratical words… in a simple and direct way I saw the fluency of the Dharma and I rejoice in this amazing way to explain the Dharma. May you always turn the Wheel of Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. And precious teacher, vajra holder of Ganden Shartse, I humbly prostrate at your Dharma wisdom. May I alwas take refuge in the Arya Ratna Dharma in order to protect others from my own deluded thoughts and actions and may I always hold your precious advice at the crown of my head and center of my heart. My you my teacher remember me in all my future lives, and like today, bring me to the clarity and lucidity of Dharma with the hook of your compassion… I have no words to express my gratitute for this precious advice. I will watch many times and meditate in all your instructions. Thank you very much!

    • Den on Apr 27, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      Wow, there is so much Dharma teaching in this one single response. I know virtually nothing about Dharma and there are so many good ideas in here that I had never heard before, “May I always take refuge in the Arya Ratna Dharma in order to protect others from my own deluded thoughts”, “May you my teacher remember me in all my future lives, and like today, bring me to the clarity and lucidity of Dharma with the hook of your compassion”, etc. Very useful to think on, thank you.

    This is amazing art thangka of the Goddess of Enlightenment: Cittamani Tara and Dorje Shugden. Cittamani Tara, the highest yoga tantra manifestation of the deity Tara, who can lead us to liberation and enlightenment within a single lifetime. Depicted with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri form a powerful pair.

    Yellow Dzambala is the God of Wealth and Dorje Shugden who is Dharma Protector and an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. The Yellow Dzambala bestows inner and outer wealth for those who have faith and trust in his prayers. Dzambhala’s blessings are to help those by eliminating poverty. It will be good to have this beautiful thangka to attract wealth luck and abundance to our home or office.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It is totally our choice if we want to become happy or bitter. When we are not true to ourselves, we will put the blames on others. As we do this more, we become more bitter every day and we will never improve. It is as if we are sick but we are in denial. As a result, our sickness will never be treated and we will never heal or cured.

    To be out of suffering, the first thing we have to do is to look into ourselves and find the root cause of our unhappiness. After identifying the root cause, we have to apply an antidote to it according to what Lord Buddha has taught us. Lord Buddha himself had walked the path and he had shown us his methods work. We may not like the process, but we should be focusing on the result and work hard towards it.

    Did you know there are 24 holy places that are empowered with the energy of Heruka and Vajrayogini? For someone who is a practitioner of Heruka or Vajrayogini tantra, meditating in these places can help the practitioner gain higher insight and realization. Jog Falls in Karnakata state in South India is one of the 24 holy places. Many monks visit Jog Falls to do prayer and ritual.

    Thailand is a Buddhist country, the majority of Thai people are devoted Buddhists. Therefore, we can find Buddhist temples almost everywhere in Thailand. Wat Rong Khun is a fairly new temple. However, it is very unique because it is all white. It is a temple designed and built by Thailand’s famous artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat. Chalermchai Kositpipat builds this temple with his own money because he has a very strong faith in Buddhism and he hopes the temple will one day become a heritage to the world.

    Mr. Randy Pauch was very ill when he gave his last speech to the audience. In his speech, he had shared with us a few important points on how to be successful and happy.
    1. Always be appreciative and grateful to the people and things we have. In return, good things will happen to us.
    2. Don’t complain, because complaining does not solve the problems.
    3. When we are sorry for the mistakes we have made, we must do something to make it up. By just saying sorry is not enough.
    4. Be humble and not to react to the negative actions of others towards us.
    5. Be persistent and don’t give up easily. It took Mr. Randy 15 years to make his dream of working at Disney come true.
    6. Death is uncertain and it is beyond our control. We can choose to face death with a positive attitude so when we die, there will be no regret.
    7. Be honest and have integrity, it is hard to do but if we can do that, we will be truly happy and live our lives without regret.

    Mr. Randy had shown us that death is uncertain and we don’t have control over it. However, we have a choice on how we want to live our lives. We are in control of our own happiness. If we have positive thinking, we will be able to turn a negative situation into something positive and then learn and become a better person.

    There are four holy mountains in China, Mount Jiu Hua, Mount Wutai, Mount Emei and Mount Putuo. Mount Wutai is believed to be the abode of Buddha Manjushri, Mount Emei is believed to be the abode of Samantabhadra, Mount Putuo is believed to be the abode of Guan Yin (Avalokiteshvara) and Mount Jiu Hua is believed to be the abode of Ksitigarbha.

    Mount Jiu Hua is located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, the highest peak being the Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings), at 1,342 metres above sea level. There are many temples on Mount Jiu Hua, the oldest and holiest one is called Huangcheng temple. A Korean prince called Jin Qiaojue engaged in a 75-year-long solitary practice and achieved enlightenment at the age of 99 when he passed away.

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

Everyday offerings of fresh cooked food and drinks are offered to awakened world peace protector Dorje Shugden on my shrine. It is my way to thank Him for all the help He has given to so many people throughout the decades I\'ve introduced Him to. It is my way to include Him as my family and a feeling of closeness and gratitude I have for Him. He\'s a revered family member who happens to be enlightened and also my close friend.

  • 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

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
