Auspicious Mongolian Omen

Jun 5, 2017 | Views: 2,936

Dear special friends,

We have another interesting short post for you. As you know we have Kechara in the city with its 13 departments. I was searching for something in a more green area. Through the help of various students and events, we came upon a piece of land. I went with a group of students to see the land for the first time and upon arrival we were amazed at the greenery. We did a short prayer to Dorje Shugden wondering if this land was right for us or not and immediately a very light rain fell for a few moments from a clear sky. Myself and the people with me were at peace and felt happy. We felt this land is for us and that for simple people like us, good omens would appear.

We obtained a loan, went through the sales papers and acquired the land. As we were going through this process, out of the blue, I received a postcard from a Mongolian monk whom I never met with gifts. I have never met this monk and yet he posted this postcard with gifts wishing me a Happy New Year! I was thinking, “Who is this person whom I’ve never met in Mongolia?” I am half Mongolian from my mother’s side. So I appreciated the gifts and snapped a picture of the card and forwarded the pictures to a few friends and students. Didn’t think anymore about it at all. I liked the Dorje Shugden face peering from the sky though on the card. I thought that is auspicious.

Later I went to visit our then barren but green Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) land to explore. We had not started building yet. As we were driving into our land on the road, one of my students Martin stopped the car and pointed at the scene. And then showed me the card he kept on his smartphone which I had sent. I was like, “Whaaaaaat???!!!” It was an exact scene of the postcard minus monk and World Peace Protector’s face. I just stood there for a moment thinking of the light rain that happened when we first arrived at the land and now this. This was really a clear omen that my Protector Dorje Shugden wants us to have this land and build something to benefit others. I had no more doubts at all. Not just me, but many people receive clear signs from Dorje Shugden. Some people may deduce it to a coincidence, and that is your choice, but when it happens enough times, I know it’s a sign. I have been seeing good omens and signs from Dorje Shugden over the last 30 years. I doubt my ability to interpret the omens as I am ordinary but when I consult with my teachers or eminent lamas, they confirm the same thing many of the times. Now the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world sits upon this land. This reminds me of the card with Dorje Shugden’s huge blessed face peering at us from the sky!

Now three years down the road, we are finished with Phase 1 of Kechara Forest Retreat and beginning Phase 2.

I have always trusted this gentle, kind and wise protector Dorje Shugden for the past 30 years. He has been instrumental in many positive things and my works growing. The famous and great Lama Yeshe used to say that all his works have become successful and beneficial solely due to the assistance of his principal protector Dorje Shugden. Lama Yeshe was a devoted follower. I agree with Lama Yeshe.

Sincerely,
Tsem Rinpoche

 

This is the incredible postcard sent to me from Mongolia which uncannily resemble our new Kechara Forest Retreat prior to building

This is the land which was Kechara Forest Retreat when we first purchased it. It is located in Bentong, Malaysia. It looks just like the postcard from Mongolia. In the open space of our land there is just this one single mango tree standing proud and strong. Now a 24ft (7.3m) Dorje Shugden statue sits on this land.

Although my abilities are limited, due to the blessings of my lama and Protector, beneficial works can happen. It can happen for you, your lives, your work and your centre too. All of us suffer so many obstacles and we need help. Trust Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is forgiving. Even if you had negative thoughts and words against Him in the past, He is very forgiving and has no trace of anger as all those were eliminated aeons ago since He is fully enlightened. Trust your mind and your hopes in this great being who is no other than Manjushri. Bring Him into your lives and you will see things change. What does He want? Your temporary happiness and eventual liberation from samsara. Appeal to Him and trust Him all the way. You will never regret it.

I’ve always wanted a huge Dorje Shugden chapel with his huge image inside so many may benefit since decades ago. Now it’s come true.

This is the first time we laid eyes on the land that would later becoming Kechara Forest Retreat. It was on this clear day after prayers to Dorje Shugden He gave a clear sign.

Below are some comments and recollections by my students who accompanied myself there on the visit that day and experienced what I saw too.

Comment by PASTOR LOH SENG PIOW, Personal Attendant of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

It was January 31st 2012, an afternoon with a lightly overcast sky, but nothing close to dark raining clouds, Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us were standing on the main road looking directly at what is to be the future KFR land, talking and discussing, in general the feeling is good. Rinpoche asked us to be quiet for a moment to feel the environment… besides a motorcycle passing by, it was quiet and peaceful, with a little rustling of the leaves due to light breeze, birds and insects sound, an instant connection with nature which is conducive for a retreat place. Then Rinpoche spoke something like “Dorje Shugden, if this is the right place, please show some sign…” After around 10 seconds, I felt very light raindrops from the sky, just a few sparse drops lasting around 5 seconds, and it stopped. The sign was obvious, although it was a sunless sky, usually the cirrus clouds would hardly drop a few raindrops, and at that precise moment just after Rinpoche made his prayer…

~ Pastor Loh Seng Piow

Comment by DATUK MAY PHNG, President of Kechara House

On that day, Rinpoche and a group of us went to view a few pieces of land identified by our search party led by Martin.

The last piece of land to view was along Jalan Chamang, Bentong. We stood on the outside of the land and everyone of us liked it.

Then Rinpoche asked for a sign from our Protector. Without overhead clouds nor lightning and thunder, large drops of rain fell on precisely where we’re standing and then there was no more rain.

That was the sign from our Protector.

~ Datuk May Phng

Comment by DATO’ RUBY KHONG, President of Kechara Soup Kitchen

One day Rinpoche called a few of his students to a meeting and said to us that we should have a retreat centre so that we don’t have trouble with neighbours who often complain about too many cars parked in the neighbourhood. It must not be more than an hour’s drive away from KL because if too far, the city folks will be more tired by the time they come back to the city than when they started off. Rinpoche assigned a few students to recce suitable land and then propose to us.

After a few weeks, three pieces of land were identified. A day was picked and we went in two cars. Among those were Datuk May, Pastor Henry, Irene, Martin and Li Kheng. The first piece was near Genting Sempah which we all thought would be a good idea. Unfortunately, we could hear clearly the sound of the traffic from the highway. Second piece was also unsuitable because the agent had misinformed us that there was a stream running through the land but it turned out that the stream bordered the land.

We were disappointed and one of the students said we should just cancel going to the third piece because it is further and would need to go through Bentong town which usually has heavy traffic. However, Pastor Henry and I decided that we should just go since we have already gone that far. Everyone was tired as it was a hot day.

When we arrived at the third piece of land along Jalan Chamang, everyone came down and stood outside because it had fence around it. Rinpoche walked straight to me, was in a jovial mood and asked if I like this land. I said, “I love it” to which Rinpoche replied, “I love it too.” We saw acres of flat land and a hill lock and it would be easier to build than the others that we saw which had more challenging terrain. The rest of the entourage liked what they saw too except for one or two.

Rinpoche asked everyone to keep quiet and concentrate and just soak in the environment and see how we feel. Then Rinpoche looked up and said, “If this is the right piece of land for us to build what we intended to, show us a sign.” We all stood quietly and focused. I think in less than one and the half minutes, it drizzled. It was a sunny day and the drizzle was just above and around us, and nowhere else. Everyone felt it. I mean it was not an imagination. The Rinpoche looked up to the sky again, pressed his palms together and said, “Thank You.”

A few weeks later, the Mongolian postcard arrived.

Comment by PASTOR HENRY OOI, How KFR Land Was Found

After another piece of land met with some obstacles and we didn’t build there, Rinpoche asked a few people to scout around neighbouring lands even as far as until Bentong. One of them was Martin who contacted some real estate agents and I went with him to view a few pieces of land. One of them was KFR land. The real estate agent and his wife showed us the land from the main road of Jalan Chamang because the gate to the land was padlocked.

Rinpoche wanted to visit some of the lands we saw and together with a few Kecharians we viewed two other pieces of land before KFR. It was a sunny evening, around 5++PM when we arrived at Jalan Chamang. As the gate was still padlocked Rinpoche walked up and down the road fronting KFR land. Rinpoche asked our opinion and the general consensus was that this land is suitable because it’s just at the road giving easy accessibility into the land; available power and water source, and terrains not steep compared to Genting Sempah. The only setback was that there was no signal for mobile phone.

After the general consensus Rinpoche looked up and said (not verbatim), “My lord, if this is the land for us to build our retreat centre, please show us a sign.” Rinpoche asked us to be quiet because we were talking among ourselves. A few minutes passed and then we felt a very light shower of rain on us but only around the area where we stood. Tiny drops of rain fell on my glasses and as I looked up I could see the sky was clear with no clouds. Rinpoche said, “Thank you, my Lord.” Then Rinpoche spoke to us, “Our protector has given us the sign. We should buy the land.” The rest was history.

~ Pastor Henry Ooi

Comment by IRENE LIM

As we turned into Chamang, Rinpoche said, “This remind us of the road in Mungod going into Gaden Monastery, isn’t it? This is so fun, it has been a long since we rode together like this.” And I nodded in agreement and said, “Yes Rinpoche.” The next thing I knew the rain slowed down and disappeared as we approached the land. When Pastor Seng Piow drew the car to a halt, the rain had stopped. Then Rinpoche turned around to me again and said, “Irene, didn’t I tell you the rain will stop?” I was in awe and speechless. We went down to the roadside by the land to view the land. By which time, Datuk May, Pastor Henry and Martin Chow (he was the one who found the land and led us there) had also arrived to join us in the viewing. As we stood at the roadside discussing the land, Rinpoche announced loudly, “If this is the right place for us, show us signs.” There was a complete silence amongst us and we waited. There came a drizzle around us, although the rain had completely stopped when our car had pulled to the roadside and we alighted. We all stood in silence for awhile to affirm ourselves that what we had seen, our eyes were not playing tricks with us. We knew Rinpoche was happy with the find and the gods had shown us the sign. Thereafter, we immediately sign up the purchase of the land that to become Kechara Forest Retreat now.

~ Irene Lim

Comment by MARTIN CHOW

I remember clearly the day Tsem Rinpoche first saw the Chamang land on which Kechara Forest Retreat is built on today.

A few weeks before that, instructions were given to search for a suitable piece of land to build a retreat centre and one of the criteria was that it had to be sufficiently flat and also within 30 minutes drive from the Kechara World Peace Centre site at Genting Sempah.

Finally, a short list of 4 potential sites was made and we and the senior liaisons at the time invited Rinpoche to visit the short-listed sites. On the day of the visit, the Chamang land was the last on the list of sites to see. Just before that we had visited another piece on land in Bentong near the Petronas patrol kiosk. Right after that visit and just as Rinpoche got into the car to drive up to Chamang, it poured the kind of rain that you don’t want to be caught in. I could not even see the hood of the car with the wipers going at full speed.

The question was raise whether we should just abandon the visit but Rinpoche wanted to see it anyway. I was wondering how Rinpoche would be able to see the Chamang land in that kind of storm.

About 100 metres from what is now the main entrance to KFR, the rain suddenly stopped. I remember that it did not dissipate into a drizzle but rather it just miraculously stopped. Irene Lim who was in the car with Rinpoche would tell me later that Rinpoche had said to her that the rain would stop, and it did just that.

Rinpoche got out of the car and with the rest of us looked at the land but we could only see from outside the gate as we did not have the key to enter. I remember Rinpoche remarking that the land looked very good. After a while Rinpoche made a prayer to our Protector, Dorje Shugden and asked that if this was where Dorje Shugden wanted Rinpoche to build a retreat centre from where the lineage would spread worldwide, then for the Protector to give Rinpoche a sign. Remember that the rain had stopped and in fact the place was quite dry. But as soon as Rinpoche made that request to Dorje Shugden, a single drop of rain fell on Rinpoche’s head. Just that single drop and with that Rinpoche said that the Protector had given his sign that Chamang was to be where KFR should be built.

Months after that as KFR was being built, Dorje Shugden would manifest many signs and miracles.

Comment by PHNG LI KHENG, First visit to KFR Land in 2012

It was Chinese New Year and I was back in Malaysia for the holiday season with my family. One of the highlights of my trips back to Malaysia included spending time with Tsem Rinpoche and fellow Kecharians.

The Chinese New Year of 2012 was especially memorable because it was the year we found the perfect piece of land to build a retreat that will be a haven for spiritual seekers.

On the 8th day of Chinese New Year, Martin, a fellow Kecharian who was assigned the honor to find suitable land to build our first retreat center organized for Rinpoche to view two pieces of properties. The “entourage” who accompanied Rinpoche for this occasion was Datuk May, Dato Ruby, Pastor Henry, Pastor Seng Piow and Irene as well as Martin.

We arrived at the first location and looked around; opinions were shared. Then, the sky started looking gloomy, prompting us to get into the car and head to the second location – Jalan Chamang, Bentong.

As we drove into Bentong town, with the bus station on our left, it started to pour heavily all of a sudden. I remember thinking to myself: “Uh oh, it would be impossible to see the land with this weather!” However, the 2 vehicles continued to drive through Bentong town. Just as we made the left turn onto Jalan Chamang, the rain slowed…and by the time we reached the land, it stopped completely! I understand that heavy rain passes fast… but 5 minutes is really quite exceptional. I remember thinking to myself: This must be Rinpoche “at work” because I hear of stories where highly attained Dharma masters have the ability to control the weather.

Anyway, we all got out of the car, and as we can see in the photos, we did not need to use an umbrella. The group looked at the land and the map, we were saying that the flat land in front combined with the hills at the back of the land would be perfect for the retreat space. As the group seemed to like the land, Rinpoche asked us to be silent. As the natural sounds of nature surround us, Rinpoche requested for the Protector to give us a sign if this was a suitable place for our work to flourish and benefit many. A few seconds after Rinpoche ended his “conversation”, I felt a few sprinkle of rain drop on my face. Awed, everyone looked at each other after experiencing the miracle. After those few sprinkles of raindrop, it did not drizzle or rain again. Therefore, it was truly a positive sign in respond to Rinpoche’s request.

We hung around a little longer before heading back to Kuala Lumpur.

As we drove back, I felt very privileged to have witnessed the kindness of our Guru and Protector in guiding us to do benevolent work. It is this brief moment of affirmation that maintained my faith in the work we do in Kechara Forest Retreat regardless of the challenges and obstacles.

Today, phase 1 of Kechara Forest Retreat is completed and we have welcomed family and close friends to enjoy this sanctuary of peace and happiness. It never fails to fill me with joy when I see how people heal and simply find joy by soaking up the blessed energies of the retreat. I look forward to the completion of Kechara Forest Retreat so that we will be able to welcome more guests.

    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 assistants 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 (Avalokiteshvara, 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.

    It is really very interesting to read how KFR land was found and built.
    When Rinpoche had the intention of building a retreat land not too far from KL close to World Peace Centre. He and his close students started to go out to hunt.

    After visiting the last 2 places and they were proceeded towards Bentong where there was heavy downfall and they thought not to carry on. But Rinpoche said that it will stop and to proceed. So they they entered Bentong town finally turn to Chamang Road to the place they were suppose to view.
    Just a short distance before they reached the destined land the rain stopped. They got out of the car to view but could not enter as the gate was locked and they do not have the key to access.

    They all acclaimed they like the land and Rinpoche walked a few steps away and asked Dorje Shugden whether this is the right place and if it is so, give a sign. Almost immediately a few drops of rain fell on Rinpoche’s head and a slight drizzle of rain fell on the group area.

    They went back and proceeded to purchase the land. Out of the blue Rinpoche received a card of a tree standing near by and a mountain way behind with Dorje Shugden’s peering in the sky. Rinpoche took a picture and sent to the group.

    Few days later Rinpoche decided to visit the the land again and as they approached ‘KFR’ Martin stopped the car and acclaimed is this scene similar to the picture Rinpoche sent us excluding Dorje Shugden’s face on top.

    Is it auspicious? Indeed it is to me.

  12. wan wai meng on Jun 15, 2017 at 1:40 am

    This was a momentous day, whereby a land is chosen to further the spread of the Gaden lineage in this part of the world. May Kechara Forest Retreat bring more and powerful benefits and blessings to all who join and participate in tis activities. Many many scholars, teachers, geshes arise to benefit all sentient beings.

  13. Pastor David Lai on Jun 11, 2017 at 12:29 am

    I think that the land has exceptional qualities because it was chosen by Dorje Shugden based on our karma and affinity of the people here and in the future. Since the beginning, I have been reading and hearing about exception stories regarding the land and how there was just incredible signs.

    That is just Dorje Shugden at work and this is how he manifest guidance even for the growth of Kechara and the lineage as a whole. This Dharma Protector really manifest protection and guidance that is palpable and that has real incidence that attest to his powers and ability. I especially think the card is not just a blessed coincidence but the actually workings of Dorje Shugden that the land indicated is indeed the one.

    He works not just on the scale of up to an entire organization and he can also guide and assist one’s spiritual path as well. If we place our full trust in him, we can achieve quite a lot spiritually in this life and especially for our future lives, which is Dharmically and logically more important.

  14. Alice Tay on Jun 9, 2017 at 11:37 pm

    We are so fortunate because able to meet a qualified guru to teach us dharma and the practice of dharma protector Dorje Shugden. Just like the famous and great Lama Yeshe, a devoted follower and rely on Dorje Shugden used to say that all his works have become successful and beneficial solely due to the assistance of his principal protector Dorje Shugden. As such, we should have strong faith in our guru and Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. May all of Rinpoche’s aspirations be fulfilled and growth of KFR be successful for the benefit of others.

  15. Lum Kok Luen on Jun 9, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    KFR is so blessed and holy to benefit many in the future is truly the manifestation of the pure kindness and compassion of Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.

    Rinpoche said: “This was really a clear omen that my Protector Dorje Shugden wants us to have this land and build something to benefit others. I had no more doubts at all. Not just me, but many people receive clear signs from Dorje Shugden. Some people may deduce it to a coincidence, and that is your choice, but when it happens enough times, I know it’s a sign. I have been seeing good omens and signs from Dorje Shugden over the last 30 years.”

    This is truly amazing. Our Protector and Rinpoche work in so many miraculous ways to purely to benefit us all.

    And today, KFR is so successful and ready to embark on Phase II. We must and will continue to work to grow KFR where many from around Malaysia and the world can come and learn the Dharma.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

  16. Lim Han Nee on Jun 8, 2017 at 5:58 pm

    “If this is the right piece of land for us to build what we intend to, show us a sign,O Lord.”In response to this request from Rinpoche, a light drizzle fell. In Pastor Seng Piow’s own words : “I felt very light raindrops from the sky, just a few sparse drops lasting around 5 seconds, and it stopped”. The sign was a clear one from Dorje Shugden endorsing the piece of land on which KFR now stands. Then later, there was the postcard which had the iconic tree! Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden do show us such clairvoyant signs whenever it is important to do so .

    With Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden’s blessings, Kechara Forest Retreat has manifested as a most sacred and holy land , Vajrayogini Pure Land on earth!We are tremendously blessed. Let us remember that Dorje Shugden is always with us, helping us every step of the way.These signs of clairvoyance remind us that we are constantly being blessed and protected by great compassionate beings, including our Lama and Dorje Shugden. In fact, the beautiful shrines and Buddha statues and stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat also strongly impress on us that when we are in this sacred land, we are enveloped in the warm embrace of powerful sacred energy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating Kechara Forest Retreat for us.

  17. Esther Goh on Jun 7, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    Reading this article gives me goosebumps and reaffirms my faith in Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden. Through the kindness and tireless efforts of Rinpoche, we are so privileged to be able to soak in the benefits of this beautiful and holy retreat.

  18. Stella Cheang on Jun 7, 2017 at 10:46 am

    The sharings on this article is proof that Tsem Rinpoche is very humble never show off his clairvoyance and his very close relationship with the enlightened Protector who is always at Rinpoche’s side ready to assist. This is one of the many examples we read and learn from Rinpoche’s close students throughout the years. Yet, Rinpoche always claim he is normal like us and he only focuses on teaching us the dharma which will help us with our mind transformation.

    This article also reminds me that Kechara Forest Retreat came a long way from a piece of barren land to now a modern infrastructure with state of the art facility that is home to hundreds of spiritual aspirants. A sincere thank you to all who had worked hard and put in the effort and resources to make this happen so that people like us can walk in and dharma is ready for us. We must cherish this spiritual facility and find ways to make it greater for more people to be able to benefit from it.

  19. Samfoonheei on Jun 6, 2017 at 6:11 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is indeed a very blessed,Holy land choosen by the Protector Dorje Shugden.Well having fully trusted Dorje Shugden and have faith ,we are surely benefits and it will always help us .Dorje Shugden has planted many blessing throughout the land.Those who wish to practice sincerely,will gain attainments on this Holy land.
    Do enjoyed reading those interesting comments by our Dharma brothers and sisters and about auspicious Mongolian Omen.
    I was at Kechara Forest Retreat attending Drukchuma on 3 june 2017,many of us witnessed an auspicious Omen too. Just about to end the Puja all a sudden rainfall and rainbow appeared.Its so auspicious and its a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for choosing this Holy land to have a Buddhist centre and beautiful retreat centre to benefit many more people.

  20. Fong on Jun 6, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    From all accounts, there were many signs that KFR is on the right site; from ask for signs like the drizzle, to unasked for signs like the postcard. Even the little talked about prediction to Irene by Rinpoche that the rain would stop for them to look at the land, shows Rinpoche’s faith in Dorje Shugden coming to their aid.

    We tend to forget that Dorje Shugden is enlightened and will help us if we were to just put our faith in him and ask for help especially if it is to further our dharma work and/or path. If our intentions and motivations are pure, then our requests will be answered.

    This story here is to remind us that we can put our faith in Dorje Shugden even though it may seem trivial but it is to spread the dharma and Lama Tsongkhapa’s stainless teachings.

  21. Choong on Jun 6, 2017 at 12:40 am

    To me it is another proof that clairvoyance exists and that there are entities in dimensions which we cannot see but which are there. There is much to unveil.

  22. MartinC on Feb 9, 2017 at 9:32 am

    Tsem Rinpoche has worked very hard over the years to provide accurate and important information about Dorje Shugden to dispel the malicious disinformation spread about the Protector. It is fantastic that Rinpoche’s efforts have translated into many people such as the commenter seeing the beauty in Dorje Shugden’s practice. Also Suzy has an interesting opinion about why His Holiness banned the practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

  23. Jason on Nov 14, 2016 at 2:18 am

    Kechara Forest Retreat is a really a good place consider as spiritual center. I love the greenery. This land is the right place as our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden did give us a sign or good omens. We should maintain it well to benefit next generation.

    As Rinpoche said, Dorje Shugden will help us if we rely on him. Dorje Shugden is helping us to create conducive environment for our spiritual benefit.

    Thanks Rinpoche and those tireless contributed. Without Guru and his disciple, KFR will not be here today.

    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.

    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,

    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!

    With strong faith and motivation in dharma protector Dorje Shugden,i believe and through my humble personal experience are able to see the signs from the dharma protector to guide and assist us in our dharma path and secular achievements. May KFR land manifest swiftly to benefit more people to come for retreat and find peace and happiness. We are all very fortunate to have Rinpoche and Martin Chow for founding the KFR land with the blesssings and auspicious signs from Dorje Shugden.Rejoice! _/\_

  26. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 17, 2016 at 12:18 am

    What an auspicious omen to receive the card from an unknown Mongolian monk containing a picture that resemble KFR land. Now few years later, Kechara Forest Retreat has manifested and under the guidance of H.E. the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we continue building and disseminate knowledge. Even I now am leaning how to read and write Tibetan language. With DS blessings may KFR continue to grow.

  27. shane jayasuriya on Jan 22, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    Its really amazing that Monk postcard and KFR land image matched each other. It can see how divine power, Dorje Shugden powers works behind KFR even it not even build.. Its Like Dorje Shugden choose the KFR land by himself..Sadu 3x

  28. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 25, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    For lamas, and practitioner who benefit sentient beings and the dharma the buddhas and bodhisattvas make their help very apparent to them and much more obvious. That does not mean the buddhas and bodhisattvas do not answer our prayers, they do but perhaps more subtly they help us and not so overt. For the people who do big dharma work, they sometimes need to work very fast for the benefit of sentient beings so they need help in much more direct ways and in way they can understand it quickly so they can make quick and accurate decisions.

  29. Phng Keng Hwa on May 18, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It always amazes me when miraculous events like the one above happens. First the postcard, then the drizzle? Talk about a double whammy…. but in a very good way.^^;

    I remember saying, “Whao…!” when my auntie showed me the postcard picture next to the land picture on her phone. Both me and my sister were speechless and dumbfounded.

    May Kechara Forest Retreat last a very long time. 🙂

  30. May Ong on Apr 17, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    The resemblances of the pre-build photo of original KFR and the postcard the Mongolian monk sent to Tsem Rinpoche were uncanny. It is exactly the same. The thing that perpetuates me is this Mongaloan monk sent a postcard at almost the exact moment Tsem Rinpoche were scouting for the retreat land.

    Another activity I noticed in Kechara, especially whenever Tsem Rinpoche gives teachings in Kechara House or when they are prayers held in KFR on special occasions or event, there will always be an indication of either heavy rain or light drizzle when there weren’t any rain clouds were seen before. These are the Miracles I have witnessed especially when we are around Tsem Rinpoche. The protectors always showed pleasing signs of virtuous work that Tsem Rinpoche carries out.

  31. sandra on Apr 15, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    Beautiful vintage looking postcard as an amazing sign. Very cool. This is all because of Rinpoche’s bodhicitta. Nice.

  32. Low KHJB on Apr 11, 2015 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this little but significant history on how you team manage to acquire this perfect piece of land to house the largest protector of our time The Dorje Shugden.
    We are very fortunate as we would have the chance to visit this lovely site as it is located in our own Malaysia.A country that allowed his citizen a freedom to practice or follow the religion of our own choice without malice.
    May the Kechara forest retreat be able to develop into his full potential to help all those who believe in the powerful dharma protector The Dorje Shugden.May all those who are fortunate to visit the KFR be blessed with Inner and Outer Wealth in order for them to gain the ultimate positive Mind Transformation…in order to help others in need.

  33. Li Kheng on Apr 10, 2015 at 2:21 am

    Wow, time really flies by! The more time I spend in Dharma, the more grateful I am to be able to use my time and life for Dharma because it benefits many including myself. The past 2 1/2 years have been the most eventful and rewarding in Kechara Forest Retreat. Not only did I gain many new skills from planting, farming to painting statues, making malas and facilitating peace retreats; I grew so much personally in a way that I am in greater peace with myself.

    With peace, I am able to reflect, accept and let go. With less burden, I am able to dream and garner the desire to do more happily and with conviction.

    Kechara Forest Retreat will always have a very special place in my heart as it is within this space that I learnt about acceptance and tolerance.

  34. Jean Mei on Apr 10, 2015 at 1:15 am

    Before anything was built, there used to be a walkable path on the side of a hill, now beautifully transformed into the Tara Walk, alongside the Medicine Buddha Hill. That path used to be the only walkable path within the land.

    Walking along the path would eventually lead to a clearing – and at one particular spot, if one was to hold up the Mongolian postcard they would be shocked at how uncannily similar it was to the view before them.

    I believe that when someone such as His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, who’s a pure monk that holds His vows, and has clean samaya with His Guru, asks for a sign – there’s no place too far that a sign will appear.

    The land that Kechara Forest Retreat is built on is incredible. Peaceful, serene, untainted, and now holy due to the prayers performed and activities held on the land.

    May whoever steps on this land be filled with a sense of calm, happiness and be protected by Dorje Shugden.

  35. Jacinta Goh on Apr 9, 2015 at 10:21 am

    This article has prompted me to have faith in my Protector. Very happy that Rinpoche shared this story with us as this sharing enable us to have more understanding on the things happening around Rinpoche. Although Dharma is the medicine, the signs and miracles acted as vitamins that every now and then nourishes us on our spiritual path so that we will have faith towards our Guru and the Protector.

  36. Antoinette on Apr 9, 2015 at 7:25 am

    How the land was found with the guidance of the Protector. it is amazing how the right place to build Kechara Forest Retreat was found. And the card coming from Mongolia with the exact scene of the place.

    Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector and gives us conducive conditions to learn and practice the Dharma. May many come to be benefited and to receive peace and healing.

  37. Khoo on Apr 9, 2015 at 12:36 am

    Kechara Forest Retreat is indeed a very blessed land choosen by the Protector Dorje Shugden. Everyone who came to visit will immediately fall in love with its serene environment. Throughout the building of KFR, I have witnessed a lot of auspicious signs happened in this holy land. And I have no doubt that upon its completion it will continue to give blessings to all the people coming here to be engage in dharma practise. Even the contractors and workers involve in building KFR are begining to get interested in learning and practise dharma, this is what makes this land so holy.
    I also wanted to thank Rinpoche and also the senior students who worked very hard to acquire this land. It is the result of their hardwork that we got the opportunity to build such a wonderful place for many people.

  38. Pastor Chia on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:25 pm

    I truly believe all this good omen happen when first fond at this precious land. Protector has always show us many sign before. Look at now,H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and his student had created this land become holy place for people come for retreat to find inner peace for their spiritual journey. In Kechara Forest Retreat, have many holy image like largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world, Vajrayogini stupa, outdoor Manjushiri statue and etc. Here welcoming everyone to join our meditation program and make offering to all the holy image.

  39. pammie on Apr 8, 2015 at 7:09 pm

    Such a beautiful story. Gives me goosebumps every time I hear the story. Hehe…

    KFR is a very beautiful and serene place to be in.
    I truly trust that our protector, Dorje Shugden and our Guru, Tsem Rinpoche built KFR in the right place! And I know it’s not a coincident that the raindrop was timely and KFR is definitely growing bigger and more beautiful!

    I remember Rinpoche brought a few of us to visit KFR as well after the group above mentioned went. I am not a fan of nature and terribly scared of insects so when Rinpoche asked whether I would like to be here, I kinda freaked out a bit BUT now I have learned to love KFR from the beginning till now.

    May many many more come to KFR and be benefitted in many ways.

  40. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Apr 8, 2015 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. I have been to KFR once, helping the Green team to pull out the weeds. Though it was only a day visit, the tranquility of the place fills the air. The tranquility and air it exudes makes us want to come back for more…I would like to visit KFR again, hoepfully soon.

    Regards

    I love hearing about auspicious signs. That is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Tiny miracles where you look around and say hmm… Was it real? But then you know, you know inside that it was. I like how everyone describes the story differently, yet everyone has the same unwavering conclusion in the end. Good story.

    I am part of the Green Team of Kechara Forest Retreat. Rinpoche used take many of us there to have a picnic and Rinpoche will gave us Dharma talk and joke with us when it’s stilll a jungle. Rinpoche and all of us enjoyed the green very much. Now we have a pleasant Dukkar Apartment to stay but we continue to green up this land for others to enjoy it.

    When the news of the post card reached all Rinpoche’ students, everyone rejoiced to the top. This mango tree now we called it the Iconic tree and we have built Dukkar Apartment next to it and a beautiful garden surrounding it. It has become one of the must visit spot of Kechara Forest Retreat, a story that we proudly tell every guests that visited KFR.

    Dorje Shugden is a great protector that show quick and swift sign for His answer for us to see. Many of us experienced His powerful blessings. That is because we have strong faith in him. It is the faith that connected us strongly with Him in order for him to help and give answer swiftly.

    Life is never easy. It is always causes doubt and confusion in our mind when we have to face so much of disappointments along the way. When we lost our hope, never forget that Dorje Shugden is the King of protector in this degenerate time who is Manjuhsri himself is here to help us. In order to help us on the fastest manner He manifested as a protector to get closer to us.

    To see swift result, faith is the key. When we do His Sadhana and chant His mantra everyday, we make the strong connection with him for him to help us.

    When i first heard of how the KFR land was chosen with the sign given by protector it was really make me think that if one with a right motivation one will be led to a correct direction from the protector. Some may say coincident but i would choose to believe it’s a sign to guide one to the path that bring great benefit spiritually.

    The protector have shown the way and it’s been many time we witness the result and it never fail us unless our motivation is wrong and our samaya with our Guru is bad then nothing much to explain.

    Believing in the protector is just like believing in our Guru as it’s given by our Guru and is to help us to clear our obstacles in order to create a conducive condition in our spiritual journey.

    I’m so fortunate to be part of the team to build the Phase 1 of KFR. Nothing would be better to spend out time, effort and energy to build something that will bring so much benefit to may people.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. It’s something i would take as a myth but is a teaching of how we should believe in our protector with a right way in our spiritual practice.

    Though initially well supported by good signs and good omens, it is not surprising that it’s now being significant and in all reality that, the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the World will be sitting at Kechara Forest Retreat at Chamang, Bentong. Rinpoche has always wanted a huge Dorje Shugden Chapel with dorje shugden’s huge image inside to benefit many, many and now it has materialised! Rinpoche expressed that he has always trusted this kind and wise Protector, Dorje Shugden for the past 30 years, and who has been instrumental in many of his positive things and the progress of his work which is growing and keeps on growing. Rinpoche has advised us to appeal to Dorje Shugden for our temporary happiness and eventual liberation from samara and to trust Dorje Shugden all the way. We will never regret it! Thank you Rinpoche for your kind guidance and wisdomised teachings, and for showing us the way! Om mani Padme Hung.

    I have often wondered about the beginnings of KFR. Now I know about the miracles of this sacred land and this is such a great read to start my week. Thank you with folded hands, Rinpoche for sharing this. I thank the “entourage” who found this holy land and their write-ups. May Kechara and KFR grow strength to strength.

  46. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I remember clearly when I met with Rinpoche prior to building KFR, Rinpoche showed us [my dad, Colin and I] the postcard and then the identical picture of the actual site where the mango tree was… we were in awe~!

    It is too good a coincidence.

    The image of the post card Rinpoche shared is still with me in my handphone.

    I remembered when I was doing my wedding photography shoot there, I showed my wife the post card image and the stunning resemblance at the actual site. She cannot believe her eyes too.

    Lord Protector Dorje Shugden really shows us many signs for us to do greater deeds and good.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  47. shelly tai on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for having this beautiful retreat center specially located in Malaysia, being a Malaysian is hard to imagine we will have such a place to practice because Malaysia us a Muslim country but due to our kind guru we have such a bless place to do our retreat and for some of us a place to relax and connect ourselves with the nature . May KFR continue to grow and benefits more people in the future.

  48. Datuk May on Apr 5, 2015 at 10:48 pm

    That trip to view Chamang Land (now known as Kechara Forest Retreat) was extremely memorable and with affirmation and blessings from Dorje Shugden for its acquisition.

    When Rinpoche received the postcard from the Monk in Mongolia, He kindly shared it with us. At that time, Martin and I used to go scout the land with the owners and to actually view the inside of the property. One day Martin showed me the resemblance to this particular part of the land to the postcard and I exclaimed “Oh my god, we must let Rinpoche see this when He comes”. And Martin did and Rinpoche was very happy to see another blessing and affirmation on this land for KFR and our Protector Chapel.

    To my humble mind, I thank Rinpoche and Dorje Shugen for showing us the way to be of benefit to many many who will come to KFR and be guided to be under the protection, love and care of our King Protector, Dorje Shugden.

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA.

  49. jeffry william on Apr 5, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and all the Kecharian for making this place and facility possible.
    Kechara Forest Retreat is a magnificent place for those who seeking spiritual wellness, serenity, peace, healing and tranquility. I was in awe to know the history behind KFR project.
    It’s a reminder note for myself that if we do Dharma work with pure and sincere motivation, trust our Guru and Protector Dorje Shugden all the way, the result will follow.

    I have great fortune to be able to visit this place and doing retreat and I wish to meet the opportunity to come again in the near future _/\_

  51. Robert. Anderson on Apr 5, 2015 at 11:49 am

    I have been looking for a new place to live. The first place was huge but needed a lot of work. The second place was super small but had a large yard. When I went to sell my home to get the second place I had problems with the title stopping me from selling it. I am still getting the title work straightened out. I felt both places were not right for me thou. My gut told me I would get neither. Hopefully the third times the charm. I will do the same as Tsem and ask Dorge Shugden to give me a sign at the next place I look. I will give my trust over to him to find the right place for me. Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for reminding me to include dharma into my home finding decision. I never even thought of it.

  52. keng tan on Apr 5, 2015 at 9:13 am

    Thank you for sharing this interesting article. The true miracle of dharma is undoubted for the pure and sincere. I have the good fortune to visit this retreat place after and it is truly a magnificent place of tranquil. Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara for making available this facility which will benefit many for years to come.

    As I reread this, I find that even though the suggested 10 points are seemingly different but the undertone is the same; specifically about dealing with social ills or unjust. The key is to reduce the “I” in all situation, thus, narrowing the divide and we will be able to see and feel what others are feeling. In turn, this leads to less judgement, less condescending, less self-imagery but more empathy and more acceptance. Speaking up with well research facts is certainly one of the best ways to deal with social ills and unjust situation.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and writing team for this article. I find Gandhi’s eventful life an interesting read. Never realised that his 21 years in South Africa set the foundation to Gandhi’s nationalist and activist reputation. The greatest achievement of Mahatma Ghandhi is gaining independence for India without violence. He pushed for swaraj (self-government) and peaceful transfer of power from the British colonial to the Indian congress. It was a success for mankind as Mahatma Gandhi achieved these before he was assassinated.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us all these beautiful statues around the world. It is not surprising that most of the large Buddha statues are Buddha statues. In Buddhism, we know the benefits of large Buddha statues and we appreciate large Buddha statues. A large Buddha statue is very beneficial to everyone and anything that is around that area.

    The larger the Buddha statue, the more beneficial it is to its surroundings. In history, large Buddha statues are erected to calm the land or to bless the environment and the beings around. Many Buddha statues are erected in places that are prone to natural disasters or accidents. An example will the Leshan Buddha which was intentionally created to calm the turbulent waters of the river in front of it.

    After the Buddha statue was completed, the waters of the river did become calmer and it is much safer for the boats that sail along the river. This is just one of the many benefits of large Buddha statues.

    Most of us are very afraid or scared if we see the ghosts because we don’t know what to expect. We are afraid that they might harm us or disturb us. However, Buddha Shakyamuni taught us not to be afraid of them because being born as a ghost or spirit, it is actually a great suffering. We should generate compassion for them.

    We take rebirth as a spirit or ghost due to our miserliness and anger. As a spirit, we will suffer from hunger, thirst, loneliness and tremendous cold and heat. We can also experience these when we are in human form, we should know how much pain it is to be in that state. Imagine if we have to live like this every day for hundreds or maybe thousands of years? Therefore, it is very important for us to cut the miserliness and also the anger.

    Shantideva was born a wealthy prince. However, he gave up material wealth to join the monastery to become a monk. He was an extraordinary scholar, monk and philosopher. He is considered as one of the 84 Mahasiddhas. When Shantideva was in the monastery, he was not liked as he was not seen studying nor participating in the curriculum. But later, his delivery of the teaching of “The Way of the Bodhisattva” had showed him to be very learned to the surprise of his detractors.

    Have you seen this unique depiction of Vajrayogini before? She is depicted with her holding her own severed head. This form of Vajrayogini is called Ucheyma. The practice of this form of Vajrayogini helps us to cut the root of our sufferings from the source, it is a lineage originated from the Panchen Lama. We are not allowed to do her practice or recite her mantra without the initiation. However, we can keep her image for us to create the cause to be able to receive her teaching in the future.

    We are very fortunate to be able to watch these precious video of Dorje Shugden taking trance when Rinpoche was in the monastery and hotel. That shows how close the relationship of Rinpoche with Dorje Shugden. Taking trance in Tibetan Buddhism is very different from what we normally see in the Taoism lineage. An oracle is a sangha member who are specially trained otherwise the holy beings are not able to enter the oracle. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this precious footage to all of us.

    Been a multi-racial country freedom of religion is enshrined in the Malaysian Constitution. Its not surprised to see so many beautiful Buddhist or Indian statues been built in Malaysia. Just in Malaysia we have six incredibly stunning Big Buddha Statues which is truly amazing. I have visited most of those Big statues except Wat Machimmaran, in Kelantan. Heard of the beauty of the “Sitting Buddha” which is the largest Buddha statue in a seated posture within South-East Asia. Wish I could visit this beautiful statue one day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great to know the many benefit of Shize’s practice. Shize is no other than Manjushri, emanating to specifically heal our sicknesses, clearing obstacles which enables us to gain realizations and to practice Dharma. Shize’s practice also helps us to calm disharmony situation down and to find peaceful resolutions where there is an argument . This practice has so much other benefits as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche and the writers team for this wonderful article. May it continue to benefit more and more people now and in future.

    Tengboche Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community in the Khumbu valley of eastern Nepal. Wow….It is the largest monasteries in Everest region located at an altitude of 3,867 metres (12,687 ft), As a leading Buddhist centre of spirituality and pilgrims in the Himalayan area, half way to Everest Base Camp trek, the monastery has become a house name to trekkers and climbers to Everest Base Camp. Combine that with the history , rich culture, and unspoilt traditions of the indigenous Himalayan mountain people has attracted thousands of visitors yearly there. With the colourful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with religious gathering, songs have attracted tourist as well to Tengboche Monastery every October. I do wish to visit this beautiful monastery with a rich history someday. Beautiful pictures shared and interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for constantly thinking about ways to let us collect more merits in a short amount of time. Rinpoche is so kind to have placed numerous 9ft outdoor Buddha statues around Kechara Forest Retreat for us to circumambulate daily and collect merits. On top of that, Rinpoche also made mantra stones which can be invited from Naropa’s Cave to offer up to their favourite Buddha and placed them around or near the Buddha statue in Kechara Forest Retreat.

    When more people offer mantra stones around a particular Buddha statue, when we circumambulate, it will be more effective. Why? Because each mantra stone represents the Buddha himself because the mantra is the manifestation of Buddha in the sound form. Hence, if the mantra stones are piling up around the statue and we go and circumambulate around the statue, it will be very powerful.

    The whole place will be very powerful and we can get tons of merits and the person who offered the mantra stone will get tons of merits too! This is just one of the many ways that Rinpoche constantly coming up for us to earn merits in a short but effective way. Thank you, Rinpoche for kindness and compassion.

    Freda Bedi was the first Western woman who took ordination in Tibetan Buddhism. She was ordained by the 16th Karmapa in Sikkim. She was quite involved in the Tibetan community when the Tibetans first arrived in India in 1959. At that time, Nehru had asked her to help the Tibetans and she was in charge of the Social Welfare Board.

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.

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

    1 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

“Food is the only thing that I have been longing for” - a single mother of two who currently living in Kuala Lumpur city. She mentioned that getting surplus food is not a matter of ignorance but a matter of not being able to afford “fresh” food. This is because when it comes to distributing salary, there are things such as house rental and utility fees that have to come before food. With welfare reforms, benefits being cut and sanctions, this marginalised community find themselves looking for a way to get through another day. #Kechara #foodbank #urbanpoor - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
