To accomplish perfection

Devotion to the Buddha and Three Jewels is accomplished through useful activity towards society, that is responsible, consistent and completed. This devotion facilitates the perfection of the individual. Otherwise work towards the perfection will not be accomplished. ~Tsem Rinpoche
 
(Explanation: Devotion is faith, trust, understanding that arises from study and observation. Perhaps from a guru. Useful activity towards society can be alleviating the physical hunger, abuse or sickness to name a few or higher forms of assistance such as spirituality, granting teachings or dharma work. When we engage in this devotion, we have to overcome our fears, indulgences and attachments to accomplish our work for society. Society needs us more than we need our neurosis. In the process of overcoming our inner issues, we get closer and closer to perfection {enlightenment, attainments, God, peace et al} of ourselves as individuals. How else can we progress? How else can we reach perfection unless we remove the emotions that occupy the space where perfection should be except by service to others? Any other practice is only in namesake but not reality. Therefore by not only contemplating philosophically, escaping or procrastinating back and forth with time eroding inner debates, we will not achieve without immediate active passionate engagement of service to others, but we remain the same. Maybe backtracking even. Therefore by working towards the betterment of society in whatever capacity, we overcome our personal inner issues in the process and the issues become purified and gone. Hence leaving perfection in it’s place. Two cannot occupy the space of one. Must do dharma work which is work towards society. Must focus on the outside and not inside. Tsem Rinpoche)

    Perfection means enlightenment? Never thought of I can be perfect. Didn’t know that perfection is always inside all of us. We are blinded with our attachments, our greed, our selfishness and fears. We forgot about what is real inside of us. Perfection is never easy. It is not going to happen in the next day. It is gonna take us lots of effort and time to open up ourselves layer by layer to look for the perfection that has lost for long long time.

    My very very kind guru that full of wisdom, skilfully uses many ways to engage us in Dharma work, to make us serve others, encourages to do things that we have no interest, worse still things that you do not know and never done before. To make us come out from our comfort zone and serve others, doing things that benefit others, for the interest of others and slowly we are working towards perfection. No matter how many times we failed, gave up, how ridiculers we think it was but Rinpoche never ever give up on anyone of us. He’s always there to help us to accomplish this mission of life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reconnected with us in this life. May we over come everything and accomplish perfection just like Rinpoche.

    The ultimate goal practising dharma is to focus out to benefiting and helping others. It will help us less focusing of our “self” which has creating our self cherishing or self indulgence mind to lead our to suffering. Every thing and work we do must have correct motivation,it will overcome our own comfort zone,attachment and fear. At the end we will overcoming our inner issues, we get closer and closer to perfection of ourselves as individuals as what rinpoche has mention above in the article.

  5. Mingwen on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    I remember there is once that I heard about Dharma work, “It’s not as easy as people think”. But what I think is the motivation is the most essential element of doing Dharma works. It’s to benefit other people? Or it’s just benefiting oneself who is doing the “Dharma work”?

    And what is in my mind is, for instance, before introducing a product to help others, it should help us beforehand, then, only we thought of “Oh! By using this product, it solve my problem. It’s will be good if more people can get this product!”

    Thus, by transferring the same concept on to Dharma work, I think it’s as simple as going all out with pure and good motivation, for example, to spread the teaching of Buddha to more people, as it would benefit more people because we who are practicing Buddhism have been benefiting since practicing it.

  6. Albert on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    How much you suffer is how selfish you are.

    this explains very well on how we should focus out to reduce our suffering, when we only focus on ourselves, our thinking will be very small and when things doesn’t goes our way, we suffered as we need to change ourselves to adapt to the new changes, but when we focus out, it will be different, because it doesn’t operate from our selfish mind, we are working to the benefit of others, so even when there are changes from the outside, we can easily adapt to it and continue to the work, as it doesn’t bother me whether am I gaining or losing, because it never operate from ‘I’.

  7. June Kang on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    One thing about focus out is to deal with our comfort zone. Without a higher motivation that is to benefits others, we will keep struggling when we focus out. However the more we focus out , the lesser struggling we have, it needs time. This is due to focus out has to deal with lots of kind, compassion, patient and etc which is indirectly a training to us to become a better person.

    My experience in doing counselling works few years ago that when I listened to how peoples suffered, I started to realise that my problem is not really a problem hence my suffering is lessen. And along the way, I overcome my inner issue. Therefore by helping others we become better and happy.

    And I want to accomplish the mind that as what Rinpoche mentioned “In the process of overcoming our inner issues, we get closer and closer to perfection {enlightenment, attainments, God, peace et al} of ourselves as individuals”.

  8. Pastor Ong Moh Mei on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:26 pm

    When I come across the word perfection, it always remind me of Tenzin Palmo. In her video “Cave In The Snow” she spoke about how she has been seeking perfection. Her quest, her spiritual journey started with seeking the answer to perfection. I could never really grasp why perfection? Why seek perfection and how is that going to help with anything?

    We often hear people talked about seeking enlightenment, inner peace, spiritual awakening, etc. And it has always intrigued me that Tenzin Palmo was seeking perfection.

    I think Rinpoche offered a glimpse to this answer. Reason I said a glimpse is because I do not fully understand everything Rinpoche is trying to say here. The perfection of oneself as an individual is enlightenment. I guess if we see our spiritual quest as perfection, then we acknowledge Buddha to be perfect, our Guru to be the embodiment of perfection. And perhaps by focusing on that perfection (hence not finding flaws), this will propel our own journey to get closer to perfection.

  9. Eric kksiow on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for always reminding us to overcome our fears, indulgences and attachments, at my level I still have long way to go to overcome all those negative qualities inside me and I’ll do my best to overcome it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always guiding us.

    Rinpoche always teaches and encourages us to do dharma work. One of the ways to do dharma is to benefit as many people, animals, sentient beings as possible. And not just to benefit oneself, one’s family and loved ones. Rinpoche teaches to cut one’s self cherishing mind, and one way is to work for others. Also Rinpoche adds, when we work to benefit others there should not be any expectation of any return. Else we are not doing dharma to benefit others but for the Eight Worldly Concerns.

    Hope for happiness and fear of suffering,
    Hope for fame and fear of insignificance,
    Hope for praise and fear of blame,
    Hope for gain and fear of loss.

    This short teaching summarizes the way to achieve perfection of life, which a lot of people has this questions deep down inside their heart.

    No matter how many material things we have, how excellence our career is, how complete is our family life, there’s still something deep down inside that we are not completely happy. Our happiness is so fragile that it will collapse over night when something changes. But change is a nature that even Buddha can’t stop.

    Through focusing out to help others in the society, we fill up the missing pieces and empower ourself and others too.

    I feel fortunate that we have Buddha and Three Jewels that we can devote to for perfection.

  12. nicholas on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    By focusing out it enable us to detached from our ‘I’ which is the cause of every single problem we have. It may not be easy but we should go along this direction. I believe when we focus out we will start to see things wider and we may even realise actually the problem that we created is much smaller. By looking at others problem it can be a self-reflection and we will eventually learn our problem may not be what we thought or we may learn not to do the same as others.

    Dharma work focusses on others and it’s a great practice for us train to put others before us and our problem which we perceive will eventually overcome.

  13. pammie yap on Jul 7, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    “Must focus on the outside and not inside.”
    This is a very useful quote that I need to remind myself always.
    Every time we keep focusing on me, me, me, we become more selfish and unhappy. Perhaps we can also start by helping in small ways if we find that it is too overwhelming. We can start with animals, maybe feeding them, helping the abused animals. Or even as simple as buying food for some random poor people.
    It may not be a lot, but in time, we will be doing it naturally and the rest will fall in place. And with these actions, we are also helping ourselves to progress spiritually to be kinder and overcome our inner issues one by one.

  14. Khoo Hou Haw on Jul 7, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Devotion to Buddha and Three Jewels means devotion to perfection as Buddha and Three Jewels represent the perfection. By the devotion to Buddha we must learn from Buddha by His teachings and His contribution towards the society at that time. Buddha had shown us the way by His actions and numerous teachings on how to achieve enlightenment. So by following a Guru who teaches the way of Dharma from Buddha, we can achieve enlightenment.

    With service to others we can develop the qualities in us like the Buddhas of the past. What better way to accomplish the goal of reaching the highest peak of existence as a full enlightened than serving society?

  17. Graceleong on Apr 22, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    Based on my own personal experience focusing out onto others and not on myself brings me calmness and peace. My problems and obstacles may not be solved quickly, but my mind accepts that. My mind is not focused on the problem and hence the pain is lessen.
    As Rinpoche mentioned above “In the process of overcoming our inner issues, we get closer and closer to perfection {enlightenment, attainments, God, peace et al} of ourselves as individuals”. Yes, I would very much like to accomplish this perfection of the mind. Thank you Rinpoche for the guidance.

  18. Edwin Tan on Apr 17, 2014 at 8:39 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the wonderful words.

    As explained, devotion is faith, trust and understanding through study and observation from the guru [perhaps]. Rinpoche has always been selfless, constantly giving without asking. When you do this, you inspire me to do more for society as well. Rinpoche always say monetary help is the lowest form of help, and we should always do more with our actions. Therefore, even if we are not financially strong, we can still help and provide for the society, the community and the animals.

    I hope I can achieve more and get closer to perfection as I progress.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  19. sockwan on Apr 15, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    This is the reason why Rinpoche encourages us to get involved with the works in Kechara because everything we do in Kechara is about the betterment of the society. By focusing on the outside, our problems become smaller and insignificance. Eventually, they are gone! If you do not believe it, Kechara provide the platform for us to experience that, we welcome you to join us!

  20. Uncle Eddie on Apr 14, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    As said in this blog, “Devotion to the Buddha and the three Jewels is accomplish through useful activity toward society” which is abscribed to be resposible, consistent and complete, and, the best practice to do! This will also provide its antidote to our self-cherishing mind, the root-thoughts to all our human problems, which is always about me, me and me – The self-existent. Such excercise will substitute others for self. It is said self-cherishing is the cause of all miseries and disasstisfaction, but holding all other beings dearer than oneself is the foundation of all realisation and perfection.May I be blessed to be able to change any self-cherishing attitude into a concern for all others!

  21. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Apr 11, 2014 at 2:59 pm

    I’m truly agree when engaging such devotion, a lot of inner obstacles need to overcome, during the process, the delusion and emotions will keep telling us to give up the commitment..we really need to generate a lot of merits to let us to carry on our commitment. A little bit a little bit improvement by daily , definitely it we lead us to correct path.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very impactful teaching, all of us are born not 100% perfect, whether it is physically and mentally, but yes through Devotion to the 3 Jewels, and the Guru, and follow strongly the advice and teaching given, and lower our self ego that keep us avoiding and truth and accepting that we have to serve other, rather the being serve, which create even more selfishness within us, and always become me, me, me.

    By focusing out it enables us to be broaden our horizon and look at the suffering of others and focusing on the poor me. But this, to many is the most difficult part for one to accept, because of the way we had live our live focusing on ourselves rather than others, it become like a dreaded disease.

    Yet, through Spirituality and Dharma, we are not only able to change ourselves but also through continuos effort in studying, practicing and applying the Dharma that we had, we are able to rectify our faults, weakness and getting closer to perfection. Most importantly one should not run away from problems and obstacles and we must face it and solve it. When knowledge of Dharma combine with Dharma Work, it is the perfect concoction for us to reach the perfection, and hence benefit the society as we benefit from Dharma and we focus on improving and helping others to reach the same.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this teaching.

    Love and care,

    Frederick Law

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful quote, Rinpoche. Devotion is definitely necessary for success. If you take refuge in things, there are definite results. If you take refuge in money, you become rich and unhappy. If you take refuge in the 3 jewels, you become rich in mind and happy.

  25. May Ong on Apr 7, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    I would like to share here an advice given by the Head Pastor to us today. She observed that those who continued dharma work and stayed on was due to effort put in by the individual who learn more about dharma (attend classes) and do puja regularly. These methods stabilizes our mind.

    In order to accomplish perfection, it will definitely take more than 1 day, 1 year or even more than 1 eon to achieve the result. As long as we start with the 1st foot step, and decide to continue to walk that road, we can achieve that “perfection” or “result”.

    Rinpoche always quote an example of an Olympic athlete runner who trains hard to be a Gold medalist winner. The athlete need to put in effort and spend hours working to train hard to win and it takes years to be in the Olympics. It all started from 1 small step forward and never give up.

  26. mima on Apr 7, 2014 at 5:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring blog that comes at the perfect time as always!

  27. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 7, 2014 at 1:59 am

    Thank You for the article Rinpoche, devotion definitely is a very important element. Especially Guru devotion, never break a promise in between!

  28. Julien Roth on Apr 7, 2014 at 1:04 am

    This is such a strong and meaningful teaching. I believe that this is a good form of motivation for people in their everyday lives. It surely can benefit people and make them better and more successful. Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche.

  29. PB on Apr 6, 2014 at 11:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche,
    Doing dharma work by helping others to help us closer to perfection. Engaged in dharma or society
    Work helps us focus on others instead of ourselves. Observing others during the work helps me understand some of the dharma teachings and aware of my bad habituation. Although it is so difficult to change the habituation, I hope I have the perseverance to do it.

      Dear PB, don’t hope, just keep it up as you know it will be good for you. Anything good requires effort and consistency. I wish you luck and blessings of Lord Tsongkapa. Tsem Rinpoche

        Thank you Rinpoche, my guru.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is inspirational & i will see it as my spiritual guideline. It is meaningful as it not only invoke thoughts but actions as well.

  31. Denise Kuek on Apr 6, 2014 at 5:07 pm

    Hi Rinpoche. I am planning to become a part time volunteer in KP, I attends the volunteer class on monday night currently, but that is something blocking me to step forward, i know this my inner self problem..i am dilemma but I am fully willing to follow your guide..please bless me to overcome my struggle and get to know more dharma and become a better one.

    • David Lai on Apr 6, 2014 at 5:47 pm

      Hello Denise Kuek, nice to hear your plans and I do hope you would eventually do so and I would probably see you in the outlets or in Kechara House/KFR one of these days. It would make your practice more meaningful and you would learn a lot of Dharma along the way as well. The knowledge you acquire would be very helpful towards helping your family members and loved ones when they need you.

      • Denise Kuek on Apr 6, 2014 at 7:53 pm

        Thanks David, hope that I can do it

    • tsemtulku on Apr 7, 2014 at 3:47 am

      Dear Denise,

      Everything is empty. Our emotions are empty. For us to feel the same reaction, we have to have the same environment inside us and outside of ourselves sometimes too. If the environment is different, then the reaction is different. So create new environments inside of ourselves and then it will be fine. It takes time. One step at a time. And don’t perceive ‘negative’ situation as the end to something we just started. Keep going at it and the results will emerge. 🙂

      Doing Tsongkapa practice (Gaden Hlagyema) daily very strongly and migtseyma will be very beneficial long term for our mind/emotions/blockages and fears. You can meet or Skype David Lai to share your questions and I have much teachings/resources on this blog regarding Tsongkapa practice.

      I send you my warmest and purest good wishes. I will offer a pure herbal stick of incense to the Buddhas right now just for you with prayers.

      Tsem Rinpoche

      • Denise Kuek on May 3, 2014 at 12:27 am

        Hi Rinpoche, hope everything goes well with you. Just knowing that you replied to my comment from Pee Bee Chong, thanks her. My problem is solving smoothly now, thank you and Setrap for guiding me, I feel so joyful now, it is indescribable, i know u know that, lol..i hope more people know you and your dharma work and then they transform themselves to be a happier one. Thank you Rinpoche

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

    This is a warehouse full of Buddhist and non-Buddhist items, it is huge, but it is not the merchandise for any online shop, these are GIFTS, to be given out for free, these are His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s gifts to the world.

    Tsem Rinpoche first came to Malaysia 23 years ago, with only two suitcases of his monk robes, toiletries, Dharma books, and some protection chakras and talisman to give away to people, that’s all, no sponsor, no friends, no …students, no nothing. But Rinpoche has Dharma knowledge, kindness and compassion, and generosity, and he always gives, in the beginning he could only afford to give away Dharma books, protection talisman, “cheap” plastic Buddha statues to people that he met, but he continued to give, as much as he could, no matter how little he had.

    Rinpoche has been consistently assisting the underprivileged even at a time when he himself did not have very much. In Gaden Monastery, Rinpoche was well known to visit elderly Tibetan laypeople who were without families, to bring them food, gifts and spend some time with them. Rinpoche also raised funds for various social welfare initiatives, for example the Gaden Shartse Clinic as well as this community hall and nursery school in the local Tibetan refugee settlement who erected a sign as a token of appreciation for Rinpoche’s assistance.

    Over the years, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has been to many hospitals, doing prayers, performing rituals, giving comfort to the sick, and relieving the worries of the families. The ones on the sick bed could be babies… born with defective organs desperately needing operation, young children, adult men and women with all sorts of illnesses, and dying old people.

    Rinpoche is clairvoyant to know whether the person on the sick bed is going to survive or not, so the prayers and rituals that Rinpoche performs varies based on that.

    Below is a real incident recounted by Casteven Lim:

    One day in June of 2013, I was driving along the North-South Highway of Malaysia, suddenly it rained heavily and I lost control of my car. The car skidded and started spinning furiously and I quickly prayed to my guru His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche for help and recited Dorje Shugden’s mantra OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA.

    Despite my effort to hold on to the steering wheel, the car continued spinning three times horizontally and was almost in a low-flight state, until the car hit the side railing and stopped.

    As more people are aware of how animals are cruelly killed, how much resources are wasted to keep the animals, more people have made a choice to change to a vegan diet. Another reason is that people are also more aware of how meat is harmful to our health.

    It is nice to know a supermarket that specialises in vegan products has opened its door to give people a healthier choice. Not only more supermarkets like this are opening, but more companies are also investing in producing plant-based products to replace meat. Some of the plant-based products have a texture and even a taste of meat. This will entice people to change their diet.

    Interesting article of Hecate, is a goddess in ancient Greek religion and mythology. Have seen pictures of this so called Hecate but do not understand much of it till I came across this article. Known to be the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the creatures of the night, moon and ghosts. Recording to legends she was the only child of the Titanes Perses and Asteria from whom she received her power over heaven, earth, and sea. She is most often depicted as having three heads; one of a dog, one of a snake and one of a horse. Sound interesting to read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Fat Monk have known differently by many Budai, Hotei or Pu-Tai is a semi-historical Chinese monk who is venerated as a deity in Chinese Buddhism and was also introduced into the Japanese Buddhist pantheon smiling or laughing, hence known the “Laughing Buddha” to many. As the folktales in Chinese Buddhism, it was believed to bring happiness to all the people around him. Fat Buddha statues comes in varies forms are popular in many Chinese homes . I love looking at laughing Buddha statues as his broad smiling face tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with much insight of it.

    This is a very useful teaching on how to deal with our negative emotion especially anger. Anger causes a lot of problem to us. To know if we have anger is to examine if we have patience. When we are impatience, it is a sign of anger. I never thought these two emotions are related but it actually make sense.

    When we are impatience, we cannot tolerate other people’s fault. Then we get angry with the things they do or say. Our impatience could be caused by our arrogance of thinking we are better. If we really are better, we should be patience to pass and share the knowledge with others. There might be people who have the attitude problem, but this is not something we can change. What we can change is how we feel and perceive.

    Ram is a Nepalese staff working in Tsem Ladrang for many years. He is hardworking, friendly and polite. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche always sees Ram as part of the big family.

    In mid-2016, Ram’s wife in Nepal who was pregnant for 7 months suddenly developed complications, she had to go for operation due to dislocation of the baby in the womb. Ram’s wife and baby were very weak and in dangerous condition, the doctor had no choice but to operate and take out the baby. The doctor …even said EITHER the wife or the baby would survive.

    Ram was very worried and informed Tsem Rinpoche immediately, Rinpoche’s divination showed that both the wife and the baby would survive, and immediately instructed pujas to be done and candles to be lit for both the wife and the baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s mantra strongly to pray for protection for his wife and baby.

    Founded in 1790, Beijing (Peking) Opera has been the main form of Chinese entertainment for over 200 years. It all started when the Four Great Anhui Troupes went to Beijing to perform for the Imperial Court, with the royal families present. Although in this time and age, this beautiful national art form has to compete with blockbuster films, TV drama series, home-made internet films, MTV music videos etc …many, many people in Beijing and most parts of China still appreciate it.

    The Chinese government encourages the younger generation to participate in Beijing Opera, and like Wang Tao Yang (aka “Wonder Kid of Peking Opera”) many of the younger kids seem to have a natural ability for it.

    Manjushri, whose name means ‘Gentle Glory’ or ‘Sweet Splendor’ in Sanskrit; ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ (文殊师利)in Chinese; ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japanese; ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korean; ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibetan) is one of the most important Bodhisattvas in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

    Manjushri is also known as ‘Manjugosha’ (the Gentle-Voiced One); ‘manju’ refers to how the continuum of his life has been rendered ‘gentle’ by his grasp of transcendental wisdom, and ‘gosha’ refers to his perfect ability to communicate the Dharma verbally and in written form, in which he destroys illusions, delusions and ignorance that keep all sentient beings within samsara.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    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
