Why ask for it?

Feb 14, 2012 | Views: 1,099

All types of people in a dharma centre. Some come for luck and improvement of their personal situatiions and it stops there. Others come because they see the fallacious nature of life and it’s empty promises and they want better answers. There are some that can’t fit anywhere else and can only find acceptance among centre people. Some want to take advantage and get business, money, support or something for free and they come to a dharma centre or get involved long distance. They want to use the members of a centre. Some come because they’re depressed, failed in something, low self esteem and want a sanctuary. Some are looking for answers. Some really are motivated to find a way out and will engage in spiritual practice. Some, though rarely really sees the true nature of life and find themselves restless and impatient with repetitiveness/senselessness of existence so they wish liberation. There are many types of beings blown by the winds of their karma, emotions and unbridled mind.

However or whatever the reasons people come to the centre, the teacher and close members must deal with these people, ‘solve’ their problems, listen to them patiently, give them time, energy and care, be skilfull, give them dharma and hope something will go inside their heads . They can see their situations according to the dharma, transform and change their lives and the lives of those around them. And help others and move on..The teacher and close members must do this for every person, every day, every month and every year continuously and fulfill the expectations, criticisms and views of the public and people they sincerely attempt to help. Any teacher and close member (student) would open a centre and meet hundreds of people year after year for only one reason. To sincerely benefit others. Otherwise why tolerate so much and absorb so much from hundreds of people they don’t know or owe anything to?

Having a Dharma centre is tremendous work. Hospitals, clinics, restaurants, malls, etc cater to hundreds of people, but they make money and the motivation is mostly money. So working hard with the public is easier because you get something back. Hardworking members of a centre who serve the public get nothing back. Sometimes more scrutiny, more backlash and more criticism and very little thanks. Dharma centres are the most compassionate places anywhere. Members who work in the centre with the motivation to benefit others when they have the right attitude will advance in their mind training fast because they are put up with all types of challenges from the public daily. We must appreciate the kind souls in dharma centres around the world. We must help them not take. We must do our work well free of mistakes as to not add burden. Compassion starts right here and now with whatever you are doing. Do it well and appreciate everything dharma centres have given you.

The harder you work. The better you work. The more results you produce shows you have come to the dharma centre confused and became a person of light, love and care. The more you work, the better you work is the best THANK YOU for those kind hard working people in the dharma centres who nurtured you and others. Never burden those who nurtured you. Never disappoint those who benefit you and many others. The harder and better you work, the more the centre will grow. The more the centre grows, the more it can help a larger number of people like it helped you. You should be part of the solution not part of the problem. Spirituality means you are not the problem maker but the alleviator of others’ sufferings. Everything you do must be for others. It benefits your evolution and it motivate others to evolve. What other reason is there to live. What other better motivation to exist? Dharma centres are an oasis of like minded people gathering to do more with their lives.

That is the purpose of people gathering together to have a dharma centre. That is the reason. That is the only reason. That was my reason. That is my reason. That will remain my reason always. Practically speaking, if it is for any other reasons, it is not worth it to have a dharma centre and tolerate so much disappointment, complaints, lack of effort, selfishness and meeting people filled with pain daily. Opening to harm daily… All places have politics. All places have issues. Name a perfect place? There were people (Devadatta) who always found fault in Lord Buddha 2600 years ago and made many attempts to discredit Buddha and even tried to kill Buddha but unsuccessfully. If people can have these types of views about the awakened Buddha, we should expect much more. Having said that, the only reason to have a dharma centre and work in one to tolerate so much pain and disappointment is solely to be of benefit to others. Any other reasons wouldn’t be worth it to me.

No offence to anyone,
Tsem Rinpoche

    Well different people have different reasons to join Dharma centre. Many come and goes for all different and wrong reasons. Those with the right motivation will stays nor matter what happens. Whatever the reasons people come to the centre, they are always welcome to solve whatever problems clinging to them with the teacher or friends.
    Well….. Buddhist Centre are opened ,to benefit people with the hope of transforming their mind to be a better person. Spreading Dharma teachings and bringing people together. Rinpoche’s profound explanation tells all.
    With folded hands, thank you Rinpoche having this beautiful dharma centre that have benefits numerous people and more to come

  2. Jacinta Goh on Jan 23, 2015 at 8:30 am

    Seeing this article, I am very thankful that Rinpoche hasn’t stopped teaching at all. Thank you so much for absorbing the negative emotions, havoc and childish minds created by most of us. Kechara has been a part of me since. A place where we can support each other and move on.

    The best ‘Thank You’ is through working for others and benefiting others. Be a problem solver rather than be a trouble maker. After all, coming to a Dharma Centre is to be a better person, right? If one aspires to become a Buddha, all the better. I did slipped at times where negativity took control of me (I expected all Dharma practitioners to have compassion, kind and loving, yet I expected too much ) but I got up and walk again. After all, we need move on…

    There’s no perfect place in any part of the world, people and politics are around us which is a good place to practice our patience and compassion. Without these we cannot practice! People always ask what’s the difference between training in a Dharma center and in a secular environment? Of course there is! When you are in a secular and is lost at some point of time, there’ll be no one to guide and spent their time to consult you with the problems you are facing and how to overcome it. However, in a Dharma center you are engage in a practice with a safety net as when you are lost or confused in some point, there’ll always be people to pull you back up when you are sinking and that’s one of the best part about being in a Dharmic environment. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  4. Vinnie Tan on Nov 16, 2013 at 1:57 am

    I do agree with Rinpoche that people join the Dharma centre for all different and wrong reasons. Very seldom they would join for the correct reason. I believe that those that stay for long term with their lamas or their centres instead of centre hopping. These people are those that truly understand Dharma and would then would improve themselves, transforming from there.

  5. Wei Theng on Jun 26, 2012 at 3:44 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teachings. There are so many reasons for someone comes to a Dharma centre and seeks for different things or helps. As i am working in a Dharma Centre now, may i gain more knowledge and skillful means so that i can benefit more.

  6. sockwan on Jun 25, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    I am really happy I found my Dharma center. I am using my life for a better purpose, not ‘ME, ME, ME’ only but doing something for others also. We are so conditioned to care about ourselves and people we know but very seldom to people who we do not know at all.

    On the other hand, I keep hearing this word ‘compassion’. Compassion is a very big word, I do not think I am compassionate. But Kechara has provided me the platform to practice (or to understand what it means), for example KSK.

    In KSK, we are giving food to people who we do not know at all, this is the first step to extend our care to strangers. The good quality of being caring can be developed from here.

  7. lucy yap on Mar 27, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    I volunteered in KC sometime before I was offered to work parttime.I couln’t resist the offer though I haven’t work for a long time.I was a fulltime housewife.Being in Kechara opens up a new chapter in my life.There’s this sense of awareness to do more with what is left with this life.Could it be the energy of these young Kecharians?? Plus Rinpoche’s beautiful teachings,love and care for his students which touches my heart.I feel fortunate now.May I never be separated from my Guru in this lifetime and future lifetimes.May I meet the Dharma again and again in my future lifetime to benefit all sentient being.Thank you SM,for your trust in me.

  8. Seng Aun on Mar 11, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Rinpoche’s explanation truly says it all. Why we come to Kechara and how Kechara can benefit us! Everything we need to know about dharma is all right here. I thank Rinpoche from the bottom of my heart.

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 4, 2012 at 3:16 am

    The Lamas are absolutely compassionate. I have heard that the phenomenon of teaching lay people started couple of hundreds years back,as lay people now are educated and have the capacity to learn much much more. Dharma centers are a place whereby people can get healing for their mental and physical anxieties.

  10. Li Kheng on Feb 22, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you Rinpoche for Rinpoche’s compassion to set up Kechara House for:

    1) Some of us to seek refuge from ourselves (the 3 poisons) and
    2) Other who wish to practice true Dharma so as to give ourselves a shot at liberation from the suffering of samsara.

    Kechara House has been an innovative and creative sanctuary for us to practice a 26 centuries old philosophy without having to strip away our nature. Like Lord Buddha who created 84,000 teachings to meet the various complexities of every mind stream, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche developed 14 departments at Kechara House so that people from various walks of life can find a platform that best suits them whereby they are empowered to live out Dharma in a manner most natural/instinctive.

    It is this wisdom and compassion of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche that inspired me to grab the opportunity to become a Kecharian. Rinpoche’s versatility combined with His unsurpassable understanding of the Dharma is the crème de la crème of Dharma for the 21st century.

    Being a part of a family that is built on deep-rooted teachings of Lord Buddha that has adapted itself to the dynamism of modern ways of life is a powerful place to start a journey of purposeful living. Always plagued by the feeling that life is so futile and everything we do will eventually end up in disappointments, hurt, frustration and many other unconstructive experiences, I was looking for a catalyst to make life more meaningful and hopeful while still having sense and logic. Yes, how very greedy to want it all. However, that is our nature and Kechara House makes it possible.

    So, if we have the blessings to meet with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, Rinpoche’s Dharma teachings and the kind people of Kechara, they are our 3 Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha). Cherish them by simply being a better person who benefits others. Quite unbelievably simple.

  11. MayOng on Feb 17, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Initially starting work in Kechara was a burden because we brought our ‘own’ burden to work. Then the work required us to meet people of all sorts that came with issues of their own. The more I listened to their issues, I found we all shared similarity in these issues because we seek “happiness” and “peace of mind”. On the other hand, I found myself growing stronger day by day when I talked, helped and shared more dharma with them and watched them progress with much improvement and I became happier and calmer.

    I learnt that helping other solve their issues had in turn helped myself so much so I was not even aware of it until it hits me one day. I thank the senior Gurus of Ganden for sending Rinpoche to us to set up Kechara to help us monsters. If we help others, we will help ourselves.

    With folded hands, I take refuge in the Three Jewels and thank you for setting up this beautiful dharma centre to help and benefit thousands more.

  12. Yvonne Yap on Feb 16, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    “However or whatever the reasons people come to the centre, the teacher and close members must deal with these people, ‘solve’ their problems, listen to them patiently, give them time, energy and care, be skilfull, give them dharma and hope something will go inside their heads .”

    Yes! this is very important for the first impression, i wont feel good if i go to a dharma center , people are rough,never listen to people,just asking for somethings.

    For what i think be a buddhist,we should think of people first, dont give other people trouble,if we do not want the “trouble”.

  13. Helena on Feb 16, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    After reading this blog, i think i am the luckiest person in the world as i have met a great Guru and a great Dharma Centre.
    “the only reason to have a dharma centre and work in one to
    tolerate so much pain and disappointment is solely to be of benefit to others.
    Any other reasons wouldn’t be worth it to me.”
    These words touched my heart deeply.
    If our Guru can do this to us, why can’t we do the same to him? I must transform and be a better person 🙂
    We are bless to have a Guru that close to us.

    Thanks again dear Rinpoche with my folded hand.

  14. VC on Feb 16, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Good advice and reminder to every sentient beings so that they can practice Buddhism seriously in their daily life.

  15. patricia on Feb 16, 2012 at 9:39 am

    Idream of opening a dharma center someday.

    • madman on Feb 16, 2012 at 1:53 pm

      Yeah me too!
      Because maybe they won’t kick me out of my own center hahaha!
      But I am not a tulku.
      I had very bad experiences with my local dharma center and it settles my mind very much that you call them mental hospitals Tulk… makes me feel much better about the insane folks there.
      I have enjoyed very much in the past watching you rinpoche teach on youtube!!!
      You make me laugh really good sir thank you! I owe you so much for that I do!!!
      Glad you are here and not bunked up in a cave!
      Love you man!
      -madman

      • patricia on Feb 17, 2012 at 9:24 am

        I live in a very remote area where there are NO dharma centres at all. I recieve teachings from my Lama via his webinar platform. In fact I’m quite sure I’m the only Buddhist here. But I still want to start a centre. I have no money, but I do have an idea. And a desire. Perhaps soon it will happen.

  16. Uncle Eddie on Feb 15, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    If a person is not sick, he/she wouldn’t go and see a doctor. Like a hospital, it attracts all types of sick people to look for cure or solutions to their sicknesses troubling them. The centre also attracts all types of people, spiritual, non-spiritual, or spiritually sick people. Like the blog said, “They may be depressed, failed in something, low-self esteem and want sanctuary, or geniunely wanting to help/or engage in a spiritual practice in a Dharma centre. Of course, Dharma centres are the most compassionate places anywhere, therefore, we must do our work well so as not to add burden to their already stressed state!

  17. Wee Liang on Feb 15, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and to all my Dharma brothers and sisters that work full time to keep Kechara House a beautiful sanctuary for the spiritual practice of many. In the 2 years of me being a member, i have gained very much from Kechara House and all the people there. Although I am still a monster, at the very least, I now can realize that I am a monster. That was enlightening by itself. Thank you everyone at Kechara House for your patience and love. 🙂

    Wee Liang

  18. Ash Ng on Feb 15, 2012 at 3:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I thank you and appreciate Your sincere integrity and commitments to Your root guru and because of that You have bring many Kecharians and followers working together for a unique goal. I have been seeking for a way out and I found You and Kechara House few years ago. It was really a rare gift of my life and You have shown me the path out of many difficulties. I am much better now and have changed progressively over these few years with You. Your unbroken Promise has changed many peoples life including mine. I feel Kechara House is not just only another Dharma centre but it’s also a place where I can rest my mind comfortably as if coming back to a place call HOME! ( This is how I felt as I read this post)

  19. henry ooi on Feb 14, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    What Rinpoche wrote here is very true. I have come across many people at Kechara, some like Sharon and Jamie stayed and are now full time in dharma. Many found what they were looking for – dharma, and are still around. Some were like “visitors”. Some came with personal agenda but left when they could not get what they wanted. Some got help, left and hardly returned. But for whatever reasons, Kechara welcome everyone.

    • Paris on Feb 4, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      Dear Uncle Henry,
      Indeed, I stayed and am still here! A large reason I was inspired to stay, back in the real early days, was because of people like you and Dato’ Ruby who were wonderful examples to me of exactly what Rinpoche explains about how people in the Dharma center are there to help others with no expectation of return.

      I’ll never forget how one day, I was feeling very miserable about something and you and DR kindly met up with me at Secret recipe for a cup of tea. I was being very silly because I really wasn’t doing that much then so my reactions about things were unwarranted and exaggerated (drama queen lah, me!). I remember then that you had said to me that I shouldn’t worry so much, and shouldn’t compare myself so seriously to others in the center, that we are all there at different levels and we should do what we can, the best we can at our level. I remember you being very patient with me, very warm and welcoming and accepting me just as I was right then – even if I was being very silly and dramatic! Most importantly, it was exactly because of what you said that I wanted to do more and contribute more in my Dharma work and practice.

      And so, here I am now, and I have you, DR and Secret Recipe very much to thank for that!

      Love, Paris (Jamie)

  20. Sarah Yap on Feb 14, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this post.

    It is one that should be read by anyone and everyone that seeks spirituality in a dharma center, temple, church etc.

    I will always remember the difficulty I had many years ago when I was searching for spirituality, but failed to find a dharma center which I can attend to gain knowledge (as in English speaking centers…).

    For that, I am forever thankful to Rinpoche and all those that made Kechara well known, for people like me… one who have so little merits… to be able to come connect with the Dharma.

    It is true, that all the hard working staff and volunteers are here solely to benefit others… I’ve benefited from them. In this cruel and senseless world, where everyone back stab each other for personal gain; where else can we find people that rejoice when something good falls upon a person you dont know? A Dharma center.

    I hope that all those whom have not come across a Dharma center, for them to meet one immediately… and those whom are already involved in one, to see the true value and appreciate their center more.

  21. Uncle Lai on Feb 14, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, The best thing that happen in my life is to have met you and be your student. I came to Kechara 8 years ago with a bag full of problems of anger, hatered, jealousy and attachment to samsara.

    I did not change but along the way I saw many students who had been with Rinpoche for a while suddently disappeared and never came back. I was tempted to follow them as an easy way out. But I never do that because I already know that Kechara and Rinpoche’s teaching is a true and authentic buddhist teaching which can be trace back to the days of Lord Buddha.

    So today I’m 66 soon my body is old and I ‘m still the same.
    As they say old habit dies hard. They are not wrong but these 8 years in Kechara and listening to Rinpoche’s teaching and advice I’m more calm down less resentful and most of all a happier person.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your great compassionate nature who never let any one down as long as we follow you.

  22. Sean Wang on Feb 14, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    When I first came to Kechara, I was just following my mother. For the past few years, as I grew up, I came to understand that the Dharma can be used to benefit others. I do not go into the Dharma looking for fame, fortune, luck etc. I go to the Dharma because I believe that by practicing the Dharma, I would be benefiting others. I feel so fortunate to have met the Dharma before I have been tainted by worldly desires like money and women and fame. I do not have any hidden agendas when it comes to the Dharma. I find having hidden agendas sad and pathetic especially if someone has a hidden agenda will doing something so holy like Dharmic practices.

  23. Sharon Saw on Feb 14, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    I met Rinpoche for the first time through work – a potential project – and the very first time I saw Rinpoche, i was completely captivated. I had been spiritually seeking all my life but never found the answers, and when Rinpoche could give me the answers to practically every question i had, i was mesmerised. So why did i come to Kechara – i came because i finally found someone who could explain the meaning of life and it made sense. Of course Rinpoche’s students like Henry and Dato’ Ruby spent countless hours talking to me too… and before i knew it, i was in Kechara… another reason why i am here is because i can see what Rinpoche’s vision is, how it will benefit so many and i want to be part of it! As Rinpoche has often said, there are challenges everywhere because we are in samsara.. at least in Kechara, we aim to get out of samsara. One thing i know for sure, Rinpoche will bring us kicking and screaming all the way to Enlightenment! Thank you for Rinpoche’s patience and kindness to us on our spiritual journey…

  24. Philip Yong on Feb 14, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    The first time I came to Kechara was in the month of November 2010. The reason why I joined Kechara is because I needed something more than just my ‘normal’ life. As days went by, very frequently I asked myself, WHAT DO I WANT IN THIS LIFE…and I vould not find an answer until I met Rinpoche and join Kechara.

    I wasn’t depressed before, but I was unhappy because I felt lost. I was trying everything to find an answer. I did charity, business, entertainments but nothing could fulfill what I wish for, happiness.

    My true happiness days started when I joined Kechara and it will not end here because I will go all the way.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving me the opportunity to do Dharma work.

  25. Nicholas on Feb 14, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for the sharing.
    Working in secular is mainly for money. Even some people say that they also look for power as satisfaction which eventually is lead to money too, which by having power or influences will even make easy money. All our time & effort is just about money.
    I always have this question (after the 4th year of my working in secular) when i earn this much of money, what’s next?, and after another level, what’s next….and this keep on going until i realize that my life is just about chasing money and it’s so repetitive…but that time I was not in Dharma yet so I just move on with the samsaric life.

    But after meeting the Dharma and involve with Kechara, it’s the most beautiful thing that I feel in my life. It proven to me that my life is not about working for money and money isn’t the happiest thing in the world. The satisfaction of life doesn’t depend on money.

    Through the centre Rinpoche had bring Dharma to a lot of people and make a lot of people realize the purpose of life. I’m very fortunate to be part of the team in Kechara to serve and benefit others. This is not a scarifies but is the greatest opportunity in my life I can find the true purpose of my life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for having such a great Centre to allow people to find the real meaning of life.

  26. Lisa on Feb 14, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    The only goal I want so badly to achieve is to benefit others with our guru’s teachings.
    Word hard, hard, hard and learn as much as I can when I still can so that I can spread our guru’s teachings, goals, vision to the outside world.
    The dharma centre is so important that we must appreciate it in order for others’ to enjoy and learn more.
    The centre help me see life in another angle, where I used to be a very impatient, angry and complicated person After coming to the centre and by reading rinpoche’s blog I founds answer there.

    Every time I have so much to ask, I will browse in to rinpoche’s blog, I will definately find my answer there is like rinpoche talking to me.

    For those who has not meet rinpoche is ok do not feel you are unlucky, reading his blog and be his facebook fan is more than enough like meeting or seeing him everyday.

    Thank you our kind guru for always input data to our mind.

  27. Liz Fields on Feb 14, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    This is so true, that is the reason I joined my dharma center (not for money or fame). But to better myself through helping others.

  28. Victor Phang on Feb 14, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Since I was a kid, I know I would learn and grow further in Buddhism. That time, I did not have the opportunity to learn dharma at any center. I love cleaning the altar at home and I recite mantra before going to bed everyday. After graduated, I was busy working and earning money and totally ignore my spiritual practice until one day I confused about life. They were plenty of questions in my mind. “Yes, I could earn more money than before, but I felt much unhappiness, I felt loss!!!” I know I need to go “home” then I started to look it. Finally I found Kechara about a year ago. Today I can confidently say that I’m growing, happier, calmer and found the real purpose of life. My mind is clearer now. I know dharma is good and powerful as I experienced that myself. Now I wanted to do more in dharma, I want to bring and share dharma to as many people as I can.
    Yes, I admit that is not perfect place in the world, but I did not give up just because of that. I believe being a member, I’m fully responsible for any shortcoming here. I cannot run away and I must work harder & closer with the relevant people to overcome any shortcoming. We cannot just complain the problem without any action. Of course, some people may choose to leave but believe me they will still make the same complain again and again wherever they go because they are also part of the problem so do I. We must work together to face and improve the situation. If we can’t even handle the problem in a holy center where else we can survive???
    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and teaching.

    • DR on Feb 15, 2012 at 11:52 am

      Your are right Victor when you mention ‘some people may choose to leave but believe me they will still make the same complain again and again wherever they go because they are also part of the problem so do I’. People come to a centre expecting everything and everyone to be perfect. These people do not realise that they are walking into a ‘mental hospital’. And when their expectation is not met, they complain and go away. If only they realise that the problem is in them. Hence they will find fault in any other centres they go to.

      It is very kind of our Lama to let us have Kechara. Besides all the reasons stated, it is also a place for us to gather and provide support to each other while we are PRACTICING dharma.The same reason why Rinpoche started dharma houses too.

  29. Datuk May on Feb 14, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Having been Rinpoche’s student for the past 3 and half years, I see how hard Rinpoche had and for sure will continue to benefit all who come into Kechara.

    I admire how much Rinpoche can continuously give teachings, gifts and care to so many. Some have progressed and now start to nurture others and benefit others following in the foot steps of their Guru. Some took advantage and many just stay stagnant.

    Much had been sacrificed by Rinpoche, I believe the time is now for us to generate the generosity to give back to Rinpoche (the greatest gift to our Guru is our mind transformation) with devotion and create the cause for Kechara to grow to benefit more and more people.

  30. yek yee on Feb 14, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Be a full-time dharma worker at Kechara, I feel very lucky. Through our centre I can meet different type of people, some come for help, some come for search inner peace, some don’t why they come….but I really thanked for each of them I met and I the opportunity talk to them, because of them I realized and understand what Rinpoche want his student to do.

    Rinpoche is tremendous compassion and patient, his care and love, you cannot imagine. What Rinpoche had teach us and shared with us, can benefit in our whole life. I feel shamed always.

    Built up a dharma centre can benefit so many so many people, I witnessed by my own eyes. Many people released from their suffering, difficulties time and hard ship because they come here search for help, then they got a chance refresh their own life…I saw many example by my own eyes, all this happened because one person truly care and full of love….thank you Rinpoche!

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.

    We have various reasons to come to Kechara indeed.
    But when we are inside, we gain more knowledge and we realize that Kechara can bring us more than what we came for.
    Perhaps some may feel like “I only want this, not that…”, or “I agree with this but not with that…”, “I only came for this…” (oh yes, I am talking about me), but with these kind of thoughts, we go backwards for the simple reason that we don’t move along with others (and some of them move pretty fast…) and that we don’t move at the speed we would be able to.

    And I think these kinds of thoughts are normal, if we did not have them we would be special people already, but because we have them we need a place like Kechara and a Teacher like Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.
    So I told myself, it’s ok to have these kinds of thoughts, after all I am not perfect, but it’s not ok to let them win! Then, with knowledge, persistence and effort, these thoughts will naturally dissipate and things will get harder BUT easier too!

    Yes Rinpoche. The only reason is to benefit people. Just like what we do in Kechara Paradise! Help those in need in any way we can. Even if they put me down, I will stand up and be stronger to help them. People of any background so that in return they too can learn and benefit more.
    I am glad that when I walked into Kechara, everyone was friendly and helpful! I remember meeting Dato Ruby, May Woo and Paris when I first started to know Kechara. They were kind and attentive whenever I had questions to ask. And there are LOTS of other friendly Kecharians!

    Rinpoche said, “The more you work, the better you work is the best THANK YOU for
    those kind hard working people in the dharma centres who nurtured you and
    others. Never burden those who nurtured you. Never disappoint those who benefit
    you and many others. ”

    This is so true. The only way I can repay Rinpoche’s kindness, is to work hard to benefit other NOW. At least that’s what I can do now.

    I also recommend this book, Guru For Hire (You can get a copy here: http://vajrasecrets.com/books/english-books/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html). The things Rinpoche discussed briefly here are all explained very logically and clearly in the book.

  34. tsemtulku on Feb 14, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Dear Spiritual Diva, It is the kindness of my gurus who poured so much teachings into my mind that I am able to repeat them to you. I am ordinary and full of faults, but the teachings I give comes from a pure source and pure lineage and I am glad it can help you. From a ordinary being like me if I have a sincere motivation and share dharma with you, it can have some good effects. It is good. Thank you. continue your journey. Do your practice, meditations, studies, apply to teachings to your daily actions no matter how hard. Because if you don’t then the results will be more harder to bear than the effort we need to put in to transform. Think, eat, talk, live, sleep, walk with dharma in your mind. Apply it strongly THEN YOU WILL SEE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR MIND. Our minds can change. Mine has changed alot since many years ago when I started. We are same. If I can transform so can you.Good luck. Never give up dharma. Give everything else up is ok, but not your spiritual development.TR

    Yes, now that you mentioned it..I am always teaching. You know why? My teacher ordered me to teach as much as possible, give advice, dispense spiritual aid and use myself totally for others.I ask to retire last year and have a senior monk replace me and I offer Kechara to the monk..but I was refused. I was told to continue teaching and don’t stop. I was told to stay here and make here my home… I am not a wonderful person, but I follow my root teachers holy orders most of my life… So I do my best.Thank you. TR

      May Rinpoche live long.May all Beings attain Nirvana and Liberation.

    Hmmm…so so true….you do find something new and interesting posted by silly me or a participant. Sometimes I learn new things from the interesting people that post here too…….You are so right..I am always teaching. You know why? My teacher ordered me to teach as much as possible and If it’s left to me, I wouldn’t teach…I am not a great example…I asked to retire last year and have a senior monk replace me and I offer Kechara to the monk..but I was refused by my teacher I asked several times from different angles..I wanted to return to India or the mountains of Nepal.. It was a strong no from my teacher… I was told to continue teaching and don’t stop. To work hard to make the centre grow. My teacher told me thousands will enter the dharma if I continue teaching..scary I can do that? I was told to stay here and make here my home… I am not a wonderful person, but I follow my root teachers holy orders most of my life so I won’t disobey now…. So I do my best.Thank you. TR

    Watching the videos of once upon a time with Rinpoche by Pastor David had me understand more of Rinpoche . Truly a unique perspective of Rinpoche through the eyes of Pastor . Interesting indeed to know how Pastor came to meet Rinpoche to learning and many more. Coming to know Kechara had me changed to where I am now….learning, practicing Dharma. At the time of commenting this blog I am half way through watching the videos. Will watch all the interesting episodes from A to Z.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    Everyone has the right to freedom of expression and freedom of speech. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. Thanks to Mr Matthew Sinclair for speaking up clearly with logic. Our world is diverse, acceptance and understanding are the keys to peace and harmony. We choose what we want to practice, no one can interfere with our choice of religion and beliefs. Mr. Matthew, for being open minded and wrote such a good letter that promote religion freedom and human rights. Everyone deserves a well respect on their religion. We should not simply condemn others because of their practice, their choice is theirs. Using the profession to influence and make false accusation rather statement on Dorje Shugden practitioners. Thank you Rinpoche ‘s sharing on Mr. Matthew Sinclair letter.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this précised teachings. Take responsibility of what we are doing in our life. Everyone of us go through difficult situations in life. But always think and behave in a more positive and optimistic way . Taking responsibility for our attitude, change our attitude, and the way we look at things that will change our life. Nobody’s perfect, we learned from mistakes , everybody’s got regrets. We say wrong things and we do wrong things and fall. We have to accept failure ,we learn from there and grow. Doing Dharma work and take whatever responsibility to improve ourselves. Doing Dharma work is to transform our minds , we are trapped in samsara through one life after another until we find awakening through enlightenment. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, so it’s important to embrace our imperfections and work on improving ourselves, helping and benefit others.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

The Unknown

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

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

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

Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

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