Dear friends,

I was inspired to tweet the following on my twitter page. I thought I’d share it here for all of you.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Racism, hatred, prejudice & intolerance never leads to ‘God’ but our own private hell. Accept all & be at peace. ~#tsemtulku

My religion may not suit you but that does not mean you or me are wrong. Be at peace. ~#tsemtulku

I don’t go to hell just because I don’t accept your ‘God’. That is all man-made theories. ~#tsemtulku

All religions should promote love, tolerance, peace & acceptance NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES or the preacher is wrong. ~#tsemtulku

Love of ‘God’ & hate words cannot come from the same mouth as they contradict. ~#tsemtulku

Religion/temples/churches must always teach tolerance, peace & acceptance. It’s time to be universal in our approach. ~#tsemtulku

If your church/temple teaches u to hate others because they don’t belong to your doctrine, u need to think deeper. ~#tsemtulku

Hating someone because of their color shows you don’t respect ‘God’ or nature or evolution-no matter how you look at it. ~#tsemtulku

If ‘God’ created blacks, yellows, reds, browns & whites, then respect that & criticize none of the creations. ~#tsemtulku

No religion/race/culture is more superior to others, everyone has a right to be on this planet. ~#tsemtulku

I don’t know who ‘God’ is or isn’t according to your interpretations, but I know I need to show tolerance & love. ~#tsemtulku

Whether I’m Buddhist, Christian, etc my duty is to love, love & love others. ~#tsemtulku

‘God’ is love, so never show hate, prejudice, intolerance or condemn anyone. ~#tsemtulku

Never use religion as a vehicle to bring more pain to others, that is wrong on all levels. Bring peace. ~#tsemtulku

Who can interpret or speak the will of ‘God’? No one, so just be kind, generous & loving to all sentient beings. ~#tsemtulku

No one on this planet past & present knows the will of ‘God’, so don’t interpret anything, but be kind, loving & peaceful to all. ~#tsemtulku

 

I like this one a lot. And yes, I am going to do what I feel is right. – Tsem Rinpoche

Don’t hide behind religion to mask your hatred and condemn others to hell, but create understanding and peace. ~#tsemtulku

I am sorry that who I am makes you unhappy, but maybe I am not the problem. ~#tsemtulku

If you think my religious path is wrong, that is ok, but don’t take my rights away with your criticisms. ~#tsemtulku

My faith/path/religion is my choice, so respect it or just remain silent please. ~#tsemtulku

I’m going to practice what I want & if you don’t agree, I am sorry, but please respect it. ~#tsemtulku

Religion should be used to bring kindness, acceptance & tolerance with understanding always. ~#tsemtulku

Some places people are being ostracized due to their religious beliefs. That is wrong on all levels. ~#tsemtulku

More pain is created in history using religion than any other device. So let’s stop doing this. ~#tsemtulku

How can I avoid or ignore another person just because I don’t agree with their religion. Who do I think I am? ~#tsemtulku

If one religious leader can say another faith is bad, then potentially all can be labelled as bad. ~#tsemtulku

Never tell others their religion or faith is bad, because you are not them & do not know what they need. ~#tsemtulku

I guess to just stop judging bring self sanity & peace to those around you. ~#tsemtulku

So much pain has been created by leaders in respects to religion. We have to stop this & just respect all religions or faiths. ~#tsemtulku

Forgive friends that steered you wrong, but you don’t have to fall for it again. ~#tsemtulku

Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent. ~#tsemtulku

My teacher gave me practices that some may find not to their liking, but guess what? It’s for me & not you. ~#tsemtulku

You don’t have to agree with what my path is in order to respect my religious rights and freedom. ~#tsemtulku

Some people have told me what my Guru taught me was wrong for them. Be it so, but it was right for me. ~#tsemtulku

I have a big title & name, but deep down inside I may have more fears, projections & faults than the next person, but I keep trying. ~#tsemtulku

No one can criticize or ostracize you because of your religious beliefs. Religious freedom is the right of all.~#tsemtulku

I am going to be friends with who I want and do all practices my Guru gave me and no one has the right to criticize. ~#tsemtulku

You can believe or not, see what works for you, just don’t belittle others who don’t believe.~#tsemtulku

Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have. ~#tsemtulku

Being real to others is just as important as being real to yourself. ~#tsemtulku

    These tweets are short but very profound, I noticed these are something many of us has been missing it, we always call ourselves a Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, etc, but when the basic human right of who and what each and everyone want to practice also we cannot accept, then how can we tell others that we belongs to our religion? Are we really representing The Buddha, Jesus, Allah and other Buddhas or Gods who embodied the ultimate compassion and loving kindness? Have we really learned their teaching well and inherit them to be one of us?

    When we are in a religion, we should have learned that things will not go our way, as everyone will have their own way of doing things or different ways of living, so when their ways are different than ours doesn’t mean we are wrong or they are right, it is just because every method will suit different people, otherwise, why do Buddha created 84000 teachings for the sentient beings?

  2. Samfoonheei on May 31, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful inspiration-worthy-words from the ‘Tolerance tweets’. Each worthy words paints a thousand words of truth. Tolerance is key to development and peace in every countries ,anywhere and everywhere. Tolerance is vital for us because it is the formula for peace. In fact, it is the only way to achieve unity in our diversity. Its important to teach our children to live in harmony and the importance of instilling in them respect towards other religions and races. Our ability to tolerate the behaviour of other people is the key for living a peaceful life. If we practice patience in our every actions and deed. Without tolerance and harmony the lasting peace of societies cannot be maintained.

  3. R.Ummamageswari on May 27, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Compassion and tolerance is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. So, we have be tolerant to everyone no matter what happens. Tolerance os the only thing that will enable person belongings to different religion to live as a good neighbours and good friends.

    Treat people the way you want to be treated, talk to people the way you want to be talked to because respect is earned not given. At the same time, if people respect you, respect them back, if they don’t respect you, respect them back too, because they represent their ideology not yours. Thank you.

    Mantras are sacred verbalized words that invoke the protection and blessings of the deity to whom the mantra is ascribed. Mantras are also the manifestations of Buddhas in the form of ‘sounds’, hence the various mantras of Dorje Shugden contain the essence of the Protector.

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    Beautiful and meaningful tweets, Cross-cultural understanding must be learned. Reconciliation must be learned. In this globalisation, where people of different backgrounds, cultures and religions are living together. The world has become multicultural and full of diversity, establishing tolerance and harmony has become very crucial and important. Fostering mutual love and affection has become vital. Lack of tolerance leads to fighting, violence, people have attacked people of other faiths, their places of worship, and it destroys the peace and security of a place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful inspiration-worthy-words from the ‘Tolerance tweets’

    Such tweets are presented in a manner that is simple and easy to understand words, so it is never right if we force our views on others.

    One man’s meat is someone else’s poison. Just because something does not work for you, it does not mean it is of no benefit to others. If one’s samaya is important, other people’s samaya to their teachers is just as important.

  15. Stella Cheang on Nov 29, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    Tolerance is the moral obligation to respect others, hence making possible for conflicting claims of beliefs, values and ideas to coexistence. Once this moral obligation is not being adhered to, we will see broken harmonious inter-group relationships. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these quotes to remind us of the importance of tolerance.

  16. Wei Theng on Nov 7, 2016 at 2:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the meaningful quotes on Tolerance.

    This is especially applicable for us living in Malaysia, the multi racial & religions country that everyone should respect one another and live in unity and harmony.

    Tolerance starts from we ourselves, our family, our country, our world, the whole universe. When we all have tolerance, there will be peace from inside and outside.

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  17. Adeline Tan on Nov 7, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful ‘Tolerance tweets’.
    They are really profound dharma teaching indeed! If everyone can put these meaningful quotes into our daily practice, the world definitely will be at peace and a better place to live in.

  18. Pastor KH Ng on Nov 6, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    If we regard being to have the same nature then tolerance is easy. This similarity can be in terms of right the live, have happiness, abode, food and peace. But this is extremely hard to do as most are not at this level.
    Otherwise tolerance needs to be addressed in terms of us as different individuals. This tolerance efforce the right to be different yet harmonious just like day and night exist harmoniously; both can exist and there is no conflict.

  19. HelenaC on Nov 6, 2016 at 1:18 am

    Toleration is one of the thing we should learn in religion. For what i understand religion is very personal and it is an individual spiritual path. There is no right or wrong. We have every right to practice whatever we want hence there is no reason to criticise on any of the religions. Religion teaches us kindness, compassion, love, care, unity. peace, harmony, honesty but somehow people misused religion to create harm, hatred, criticism, violent….even cyber bully, cyber harassment and that we should not be tolerate because we are giving space for them to create bad karma and mislead people who really want to practice Buddhism…!
    Its very sad, that is not what we should learn.I hope people realised what is the truth!

We have every right to practice whatever we want hence there is no reason to criticise on any of the religions. Religion teaches us kindness, compassion, love, care, unity. peace, harmony, honesty but somehow people misused religion to create harm, hatred, criticism, violent….even cyber bully, cyber harassment…! Its very sad, that is not what we should learn. I hope people realised what is the truth!

    ‘1)My religion may not suit you but that does not mean you or me are wrong. Be at peace. ~#tsemtulku
    2)All religions should promote love, tolerance, peace & acceptance NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES or the preacher is wrong. ~#tsemtulku
    3)Religion/temples/churches must always teach tolerance, peace & acceptance. It’s time to be universal in our approach. ~#tsemtulku
    4)Whether I’m Buddhist, Christian, etc my duty is to love, love & love others. ~#tsemtulku
    5)‘God’ is love, so never show hate, prejudice, intolerance or condemn anyone. ~#tsemtulku
    6)Never use religion as a vehicle to bring more pain to others, that is wrong on all levels. Bring peace. ~#tsemtulku’

    All the above quotes from this blogpost “Tolerance Tweets” emphasise a few clear points for peace and harmony. All religions should promote peace, tolerance and acceptance of others as universal values. These values act like bridges to cross any supposed divide.KINDNESS IS THE GREATEST UNIVERSAL VALUE that cement all interreligious ties. It’s a universal language of peace. When we can practice universal kindness, we will have begun to develop a kinship amongst all beings.

    Thank you Rinpoche for all the quotes. They are wonderful! I can use them in my Twitter from now on. They are so many people out there who hate us (maybe only one person with many Twitter accounts), just because we are Chinese and we practice Dorje Shugden. And, I will say all of them speak not based on truth and facts. And they repeat themselves, and they chose what they want to listen.
    I will stand firm, and it will not affect my heart, my faith and my affinity to Dorje Shugden and Guru, no matter what they criticize and how they hate. I know what best Rinpoche gives to us, I know how deep Rinpoche love us.
    Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

  23. Justin Cheah on Nov 3, 2016 at 1:14 am

    Thank you for all the quotes. They are all wonderful. I particularly like the following quote:

    Religion should be used to bring kindness, acceptance & tolerance with understanding always. ~#tsemtulku

    I love the rest too but i find this particular one caught my eye. That is what real religion mean to me really.

    Thank you again.

  24. Lin Mun on Nov 1, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the tolerance tweets. I agree we must respect everyone in all matters such as religion, cultural, belief, race, background, education and the list can go on. Everyone has freedom in their choice. Most importantly is the motivation of the person mind and action.

  25. Vivian Ong on Nov 1, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful tweets _/\_ I will post the tweets into my Instagram too ??? No matter how people criticize us or try to put us down, we must stand firm and do what we need to do and not get swayed away.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  26. Judy Chen on Nov 1, 2016 at 4:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the Tolerance tweets. We should show respect to every individual’s point of view of understanding spiritual practice.
    We have to be real and have faith in the spiritual path we wish to pursue and not be judged in our religious belief.
    The tweets are very clear to the point and easily understood.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

  27. Shelly tai on Nov 1, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these inspiring tweets. I fully agree with all these message it very true we as a practitioners should contemplate all these short and deep meaning message, I personally like the one that Rinpoche said Don’t be afraid to live be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse work with what you have, I think the message is very powerful because it tell us to tresure what we have and work hard to achieve something more higher in this case is to work towards enlightenment not to waste our precious human rebirth .

  28. Jason on Nov 1, 2016 at 4:24 am

    Many tolerances tweet prepared by Guru can be tweet or share in Facebook to create awareness of living in harmony and peacefully. Buddhism is not creating hatred, disharmony but inner peace.Inner peace will cause to outer peace.
    Thanks Guru kindness to share these tweet. I wish world peace protector ,Dorje Shugden’s BAN will lift soon.This ban really created many hatred,schism and disharmony.

    Jason

  29. Uncle Eddie on Oct 31, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you very sincerely for the sharing of these very heart-rendering tweets. Many of them have move hearts with tears, which can be seen streaming down the readers’ cheeks, including my soft-hearted self! How can anyone’s heart be so rock-hard that cannot be moved by such meaningful heart-rendering tweets. Such people of practice may not have such a heart, or whatever you want to call it! Thank you Rinpoche once again for your compassionate thoughts of always caring by sharing!

  30. Sarah on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:53 pm

    In Rinpoche’s tweets, I find meaningful messages that advocate understanding, peace, love, respect for others and their religions, acceptance, forgiveness, sanity, religious rights and so on. Rinpoche has mentioned before that tolerance can be transformed into acceptance, compassion and forgiveness for others. In this way, we inspire others to be better. I have found this to be true.

  31. chris chong on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing these inspiring tweets with us. There are alot of hate speech and names calling on twitter especially when you are a dorje shugden practitioner. People should learn about tolerance. Being different is almost equal to death sentence to them. What was even scarier is that how they keep bashing you no matter how much logic you reason with them. They just hide themselves in their small ignorant minds and blasting out hatred to whoever that crosses their belief.

    I sincerely hope that these tweets can reach the correct people to make them realise what they are doing is wrong and hurtful.

  32. Mingwen on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    Love and hate are always abreast, what’s different is the ratio of love and hate from us toward every individual we know because no one is perfect.

    When we love someone, we would expect the person who received our loves would love us back as a return. If one does not act accordingly to what we expect then most probably hate will arise.

    I remember that Tsem Rinpoche once said that no matter how, by living we are going to suffer, then why not we suffer to benefit others, rather than just suffer and bring nothing good to others, sometimes we even bring harms to others while we suffer.

    The world need more love but not hate. How we treat the others, are how the others going to treat us.

  33. Candice Loke on Oct 31, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking the efforts in compiling all of your wonderful tweets about tolerance. For me, these tweets are the best daily reminders for myself, to learn to let go and to have tolerance and compassion for all, whatever their backgrounds may be.
    I especially like this quote. So simple yet so profound.
    Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent.

    I hope many will be able to comprehend and be benefited from these short yet profound teaching.

    Thank you Rinpoche 🙂

    With folded hands,
    Candice Loke

  34. Anne Ong on Oct 31, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your wonderful quotes and tweets. i enjoy reading them, and always try to follow and not to miss them. Rinpoche’s quotes are always very meaningful and logical.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,

    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    Amazing short and simile quotes yet so powerful. If everyone can understand that religion is a personal choice then the world will be at peace as some uses religion to inflict war and disharmony.

    ‘I’m going to practice what I want and if you don’t agree, I’m sorry, but please respect it.’

    This is a very powerful quote that I like.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

  37. Freon on Jul 20, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the tweets. Even though it is short sentences, but, it is very meaningful.
    We should not criticize on other people’s religion. Especially when we do not know what they need. By criticize other people’s religion, we might confuse the person. Everyone have freedom to practice the religion they wanted. This, bring peace to them.

    There is a quote i like a lot
    “Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have. ~#tsemtulku”

    This is a very good quote. Never be afraid to live now, as to be alive is a blessing. But, never forget there is a future life.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    With folded Hand,
    Freon

  38. Pastor Han Nee on Jul 18, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these gems of wisdom and compassion.

    When we are tolerant, we show that the propensity for peace, harmony, respect for others, care and compassion is strong in us.Intolerance, on the other hand, reflects a strong inclination towards aversion, hate, discrimination, disrespect, conflict, and a denial of the equal rights of all beings to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

    Hence, it is ironical that people can say they are religious and proceed to practice hatred, discrimination and persecution of those who do not follow their faiths. Religion, thus becomes a tool to foster and spread hatred and conflict.

    Thus tolerance is the key to peace, harmony ,respect and even kindness among all beings, as we recognise that we are essentially interdependent on one another.

  39. Shane Jayasuriya on May 1, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful tweets. every tweet is related to our life. Its help us to see things that we see as failure, or hurt or unfair.

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

  42. tsemtulku on Feb 13, 2015 at 2:34 am

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  43. Frederick Law on Jan 30, 2015 at 1:02 am

    thank you Rinpoche for this timeless reaching and reminder to us, be compassionate and tolerance to others. By having wisdom that lead us to practice it physically and mentally is the best offering we gave offer to our Lama.

  44. Sharon Ong on Jan 29, 2015 at 11:00 am

    Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent. ~#tsemtulku <= This is so true! Thank you all these Dharma gems, Rinpoche.

  45. Denise Kuek on Jan 3, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this. All the quotes are the truth, if everyone on this planet unserstand these, we will have a peace, helpful as well as the world with full of love.

  46. Low KHJB on Dec 16, 2014 at 11:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for kind sharing.Your short Quote are simple and precise .If there are any religion that propagates hate,violence and discrimination.We should understand that it is actually the opposite of what orthodox religion would actually be.If we could not identify this then ,we are not practicing dharma or understand the philosophy of dharma.
    Compassion,generosity,tolerance,respect and harmony are basis of all the popular religion found in the world. They are popular because they teaches their follower wisdom so that they could find peace within them self and in their surrounding.

  47. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Dec 16, 2014 at 9:21 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your precious tweets that motivate me to keep going in pursuing my spiritual path for my future Enlightenment and liberation from samsara. The tweets and advice given are very helpful for us and serve as strong reminders whenever we meet with obstacles in our spirituality practice. I like the tweets ‘Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have.’ as this advice from Rinpoche gives me encouragement to do everything I can for my future rebirths. Thank you Rinpoche.

  48. Joy on Dec 15, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    Rinpoche always has neck with words and these are really great quotes that hit home. We can use it to remind ourselves to be honest, to be real with ourselves first and then with others. To find courage, to be tolerant and most importantly to walk the talk. What we preach, we must also practice. Some of these quotes may be blunt to some people, but unfortunately reality does not come sugar quoted. These quotes are also comforting as it helps me find strength to stay firm in my spiritual path and not to let what others say affect me. As Eleanor Roosevelt said it… “for you’ll be criticized anyway”, Thank you Rinpoche.

  49. Pee Bee Chong on Dec 15, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing

  50. Lucy Yap on Dec 15, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    These are powerful,moving and touching tweets!A fabulous reminder of who and what we all are.Being real to others is just as important as being real to ourselves,simply true! Yes, I am going to be friends with who I want and do all practices my Guru gave me as no one has the right to criticize.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these amazing tweets.

  51. beckyyap on Dec 13, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting these tweets. I always like Rinpoche tweets because short, easy to read and share, and clear for us to understanding.

  54. Julia Tan on Dec 9, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. Reading all these making me feel so real. I think I would just do what i think is right. although others may think I am rude but better than I follow what I think is wrong. I do not want to waste my time to look good anymore, to do something to please what other think i should do and to do what other think is right. It’s not easy i know because this path will be lonely but so what? at least I have done something right.

  55. Edwin Tan on Dec 9, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Thank you for posting all the tweets in your blog, Rinpoche.

    I truly agree that words of love and hate should not and cannot come out from the same mouth.

    And if “God” really created different races, different colours, different cultures…then we should respect and love all 🙂

  56. Pastor Niral on Dec 6, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these tweets. I particularly like the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. We so often do not follow through with what we think is the right thing to do in our hearts for fear of being criticized. But the fact of the matter is that you will always be criticized for doing something, so we should have the courage to do what we feel is right in our heart.

    And the last tweet is especially beneficial to a lot of people in the world out there. A lot of people out there seek to shield who they really are, what they really want to do, who they really are. So being real to others, means that you must be real with yourselves first. You must not only study your own mind and understand how it works, how you interact with others in the world but must decide what you really want to do and only then can you be truly be real with others.

  57. Jacinta Goh on Dec 6, 2014 at 1:36 am

    These tweets are blatantly true and it resonates what’s in my heart, as lately I have been facing problems from friends and family on my faith. Some are supportive but many are not but I do not blame them, as I was once like them. Some may even think that I am crazy as I am spiritually inclined. One of the tweets that I would like to share is this … ‘If you think my religious path is wrong, that is ok, but don’t take my rights away with your criticisms.’ On the other hand, I like the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt very much and with that statement alone it inspired me to move on. Through Rinpoche’s thoughts given here, it gives me courage to speak up in a firm and yet in a gently manner. As always, thank you Rinpoche for these tweets.

  58. Chandra on Dec 5, 2014 at 5:55 am

    These tweets from Rinpoche are truly an eye opener for me because so many hit home (not necessarily the tolerance to other faiths’ tweet). I revere them because they help me understand myself more and I look forward to them very much. Thank you Rinpoche, always.

    Rinpoche is very kind to share Dorje Shugden to all of us. There are so many high lamas who can confirmed that Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri and is very beneficial especially during this period. In order to bring the practise do us Rinpoche has to withstand many negative comments and threat from the Tibetans and non Dorje Shugden practitioners. Rinpoche has taken so much effort to give us this knowledge despite all the challenges. Thank you Rinpoche and team for all the great work. We can learn all about Dorje Shugden through this website and other articles. Always making it so convenient for all to access. May everyone around the world have the opportunities to meet Dorje Shugden and engage in this holy practise.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that these pujas that is done in Kechara Forest Retreat provide all of us with powerful protection, purification, good health, wealth and abundance, and the blessings of the enlightened beings.

    Admission is free and all are welcome. All of us are encouraged to attend this potent puja in person. It is important to observe a strict vegetarian diet with no black foods (onions, garlic, meat, fish, eggs, radishes, alcohol) one day before and on the day of the puja itself.

    This is really horrible.Very sad to know cows are skinned alive for the skin, and for that, their limbs are being cut off.Let s stand up for these animals who cannot express themselves through words.

    We have to be kind to the animals .Consider opting for animal -friendly fashion item. Thanks for the article and hopefully with such imagery, more people would be aware and come to avoid leather and fur products.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that India is a beautiful country, where it is also the birthplace of many great thinkers, philosophers and teachers who have inspired great changes in society.

    Sangharakshita has highlighted the importance of the commitment in one’s spiritual life, the importance of a spiritual community, the special connection between religion and art, and the need for a ‘new society’ which supported aspirations and ethics based on Buddhism. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that Choje-la is not an ordinary monk or person but also a highly trained monk who has been personally trained by the previous His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche where he has been fully authorized by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to be the official Panglung Oracle over 40 years back.

    Choje-la is a very knowledgeable monk, a very kindly, well-experienced monk who has no agenda, has very strong guru devotion and very pure in his monk vows. Thank you so much.

    Stunning rime thangka of Samayavajra and Dorje Shugden. Colourful painted and standing out and seeing it is a blessing. In Tibetan Buddhism ,Samayavajra is one of the most powerful purification practices for broken samaya, degenerated commitments and vows. The incredible purificatory power of the Samayavajra puja is most effective when one feels great remorse and regret towards any negative actions performed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Truly stunning colourful pictures of paintings depicting the life and activities of Lord Buddha. Lovely and easy understandable for anyone to learn and understand the live story of Lord Buddha. The life story of the Buddha begins in Lumbini, near the border of Nepal and India, about 2,600 years ago, where Siddharta Gautama was born as a prince but renounced his worldly life and began a spiritual journey.
    Each painting tells a thousand words depicting the Buddha’s life.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing whereby anyone who see , will understand it .

    The Chinese zodiac is an important factor to the Chinese culture where each year is represented by one of twelve animals. In the following order where Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and comes the Pig. The signs have been used for a very long time as a way of dating years in a 12-year cycle of the Chinese calendar. The importance of the zodiac to the Chinese culture is that the animal signs have been used in stories and folklore. This calendar can be traced back to the 14th century B.C. A zodiac system has existed in Chinese culture for more than 2,000 years ago. Recording to myths the first Chinese emperor, in 2637 B.C. invented the Chinese lunar calendar. In Chinese culture, the zodiac can be used to determine our fortune for the year. Over time the zodiacs became more and more integrated into everyday life, with different meanings and characteristics assigned to each animal. Interesting article where we could learn and understand of ourselves , just by clicking those button as mentioned in the blog. There’s many information from understanding of each zodiac such as a personality, fortune, compatibility, even to forecast your future and so forth. That’s wonderful at least we could somehow know where we stand and improve our weakness point.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writer team for this interesting article.

    உலகப் போரின் போது ஜெருசலத்திலிருந்து யூதர்கள் விரட்டியடிக்கப்பட்டனர். அவர்கள் தங்கள் சமயத்தையும், வழிபாட்டு முறைகளையும் பின்பற்ற முடியாமல் நாட்டைவிட்டே விரட்டியடிக்கப்பட்டனர்.
    அதேபோல் திபெத்தில் டோர்ஜே ஷுக்டேனை வழிபடுபவர்களுக்கு அன்றைய திபெத்திய தலைமைத்துவத்தின் ஆதரவாளர்கள் பலவித இன்னல்களைக் கொடுத்தனர். ஆனால் டோர்ஜே ஷுக்னேனை வழிபடுபவர்கள் இவர்களை எதிர்க்கவில்லை.
    இது போன்ற பிரச்சனைகள் பல நாடுகளில் இன்னும் உள்ளன. நாம் எல்லோரும் மனிதர்கள். தெய்வ வழிபாடுகள் மற்றும் வாழ்கைமுறைகள் என்பது அவரவர் வாழும் இடத்தில் தொன்றுதொட்டு வந்ததாகும்.
    இனம், சமயம், மொழி இவற்றால் மட்டும் மாறுபட்ட மனிதன் உலகத்தில் எங்கு வாழ்ந்தாலும் மனிதன் மனிதன்தான்.
    பிறக்கும்போதே இறப்பையும் நிர்னயிக்கப்பட்ட மனிதன், பிறப்புக்கும் இறப்புக்கும் இடையில் ஏன் இப்படி மாறுகிறான். ஏன் மனிதன் மட்டும் எல்லா உயிர்களையும் நேசித்து, இயற்கையையும் நேசித்து வாழாமல் இருக்கிறான்?

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing the story of KuShuLan. She is indeed a talented artist with a strong mind. From her artwork, we can see that she is a person that has a lot of imagination and joy within her despite the condition that she lives in.

    People from the same area will not be able to do what she did because of the difficulties that they face in their daily lives. That is a place that is full of dust, and almost everybody is living in poverty. She is tormented by her bound feet and low back pain that she suffered in.

    With her talent, she can create her little paradise, and her talent is being recognised widely. This is due to her tenacity in creating something beautiful out of her difficult life.

    Some people have a very wrong perception to view spiritual practice as a way for losers to run away from problems and responsibility. However, the 3 spiritual practitioners in this article are very successful people in the secular world but they give up the material comfort and live a simple life. They are not losers, they see things beyond material possessions and comfort.

    Buddha Shakyamuni was the same, he was born as a prince and he had a very comfortable life but yet, he gave it up. He left his wife and infant child and went to seek the answer to the real meaning of life. It looked like he was very selfish but looked at how much good he had done since the day he gained enlightenment. He also liberated his family from sufferings. He may seem to be irresponsible but in reality, he was very compassionate to sacrifice his comfort so he can liberate everyone in this world.

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.
    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
