Dear friends,

Our ladrang people in Kechara Forest Retreat made 100 pieces of bigfoot cookies (They baked super fast!) to share with our beautiful Bigfoot store team and customers in Bentong. We have regular customers who visit the Bigfoot store and this will be a nice treat for them. Some of the bigfoot cookies were shared with our hard working Puja team in Bentong. All of the Kecharians working, living, studying, practicing, teaching and healing in Bentong are pioneers and a great inspiration to me and many others. They bring blessings and love to so many. It is nice to see one department share, help and love another department. Our Bentong Departments are reaching out to more citizens in Bentong and these cookies are a nice way to show our appreciation for their support. You can find out more about our Bigfoot store by clicking here.

Background Information:

Bigfoot or Yeren in Chinese is a half man and half primate sort of animal that roams and lives in the vast forested areas of the USA (Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Northern states and some Southern states as well), Canada, Nepal, Tibet, Siberia, Russia, Australia, China, Vietnam, Bhutan and they are even known as Orang Pendek in Indonesia. Except for those found in Indonesia, they are all between 6 to 9 feet in height. They are very powerfully built and extremely hairy except for their faces. They are seen frequently in Tibetan society and there are many reports of them. I have met Tibetans who have seen these bigfoot. In Tibetan you called them Migyur. They are said to steal yaks, are very strong and very fast and have a lot of stealth as well. The Tibetans describe them in the scriptures and there are certain Tibetan lamas who communicate with them and they carry letters and messages from one lama to another. Somewhat like homing pigeons that have been used for hundreds of years. They are considered animals and are highly intelligent but not to the level of a human being. The Bhutanese, Nepalese and various people living in the Himalayas have a rich folklore surrounding these creatures and there are many eyewitness accounts across the centuries that talk about bigfoot. The natives of many regions around the world have accepted bigfoot as a creature of the forests. After all, it is an animal.

In the USA, for hundreds of years the beautiful and rich Native American people record Bigfoot in their oral histories, folklore, art and paintings in caves. They have many names for them and one of the more famous names is Sasquatch. When I was very young I saw two movies called Mysterious Monsters and The Legend of Boggy Creek and they were documentaries that date back to the 70s and are about bigfoot. I was instantly interested in them from that time untill now. It is a personal hobby of mine to study them. There are many bigfoot clubs, organisations, websites and conventions in the USA held every year.

I had this painted up so more people will know about bigfoot in Bentong which is near Kechara Forest Retreat.  And a Bigfoot statue on the right wearing a hat!

 

On October 20, 1967 Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin travelled into the deep woods of Northern California on horseback. They travelled along Bluff Creek, which is a tributary of the Klamath River in Humboldt County. They came across a Bigfoot walking away from them at a rapid pace. Fortunately, they were able to capture it on film as their horses reared in fear. It was then that Patterson ran on foot and caught some incredible footage of bigfoot who is known to extremely elusive. The film footage is 23.85 feet long, has 954 frames and runs for 59.5 seconds at 16 frames per second. This footage shows a female bigfoot walking away quickly with big strides and you can see very clearly the muscles in her legs and how she turns and her chest. This footage exploded onto the world stage and caught the imagination of millions and it led many to be interested in this creature. When I showed my Tibetan friends the footage, they said that it is very close to what they personally witnessed. And they said this without blinking an eye. Many people including experts and scientists since then have either tried to authenticate or debunk the footage. Many primatologists feel it is not a hoax. Since then this bigfoot has been famously dubbed ‘Patty’ and her ‘pose’ caught while she was walking has become the iconic bigfoot ‘pose’ recognizable all over the world. So this footage is called the Patterson-Gimlin footage or simply Patty. You can see art work, sculptures, posters, paintings and stickers of all sorts in the form of Patty.

On my blog, I have a category dedicated to bigfoot and it currently has 52 articles, documentaries, studies and eye witness accounts of bigfoot from around the world. You can see the category here.

Kechara has opened Bigfoot Universe Sdn Bhd, a second hand store near Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong, Malaysia. Since bigfoot has been my hobby, I had asked some of my Kecharians to please have a weekly Bigfoot Flea Market at the Bentong stalls selling pre-loved items at a very affordable price to raise funds for some our Dharma activities. Now this weekly Bigfoot Flea Market has blossomed into a Bigfoot store with our own shop lot building. We have many wonderful and loyal customers. To celebrate their support, our Tsem Ladrang team baked Bigfoot cookies for them. We do not have many bigfoot items on sale yet, but many other pre-love items such as clothes, kitchenware, toys, figurines, puzzles, artwork and you name it, we got it. I had acquired bigfoot cookie cutters and we made bigfoot cookies. The bigfoot cookies celebrate the hard work of our Kechara members in general and in Bentong who tirelessly bring Dharma, love, blessings and care to everyone they come across. We appreciate the loyal clients in Bentong. Celebrating all the mystery, fun and research of Bigfoot and my passion in this cryptid animal.

I am always humbled by our Kechara members who give time, commitment, hard work and dedication towards bringing Buddha’s holy teachings in so many skilful ways.

With deep appreciation,
Tsem Rinpoche

以Patty形象制作的野人小甜饼模具

以Patty形象制作的野人小甜饼模具

各位朋友们,

我们在克切拉禅修林詹拉章的同修们很快的烘培了100个野人小甜饼给文冬的野人之屋的员工们和顾客们享用。我们有经常光顾的常客,这些就是招待他们的好点心。还有一些野人小甜饼也给了在祈愿堂努力工作的员工们。所有在文冬居住、工作、学习、修行、教学和治疗的克切拉人们都是先锋,他们是我和其他很多人的典范。他们为很多人带来了加持和关爱。能看到一个部门关怀和帮助另一个部门并分享,是令人感到欣慰的。我们在文冬的克切拉部门经常接触文冬人,这些小甜饼是对他们的支持表示谢意的好方式。

 

背景资料:

大脚怪,中文称野人,是一种半猿半人的动物,它们在广阔的森林里活动,那些地区包括美国(西北部,阿拉斯加,北部州属和一些南部州属),加拿大,尼泊尔,西藏,西伯利亚,俄罗斯,澳洲,中国,越南,不丹,还有在印尼的矮人。除了印尼的矮人之外,它们的身高介于6尺至9尺,身材粗壮,除了脸部之外,全身都长满长毛。西藏人经常称见到野人的踪影,我本身接触过见到野人的西藏人。在西藏,他们称野人为migyur。在西藏的野人经常很鬼祟地偷走牦牛,它们力气非常大,行动也非常快。在西藏经文里有对野人的形容,而有些西藏喇嘛还能与野人沟通,野人会帮他们在喇嘛们之间传送字条讯息,就像几百年来信鸽的作用一样。野人被归类为动物,它们的智力非常高,但还不及人类的智力。不丹人,尼泊尔人和那些在喜马拉雅的人们都有围绕着野人的丰富的民间传说故事,而且几百年来都不断有目击者讲述见到野人的经历。在全世界很多地区的原住民都接受野人为森林之兽的说法,毕竟它们也是动物界的一部份。

在美国,几百年来,那些美丽而文化丰富的原住民(印第安人)都以口传的方式,通过民间故事和山洞壁画记载着野人的事迹。他们对野人有很多不同的叫法,其中一个比较广为流传的是sasquatch。在我很小的时候,我看过两部电影《Mysterious Monsters》和《 The Legend of Boggy Creek》,它们是70年代关于野人的纪录片。当时我对它们马上着迷直到现在。研究它们是我的个人嗜好。在美国,每一年都举办很多的野人俱乐部,团体,网站和会议。

野人之屋的原入口处,这是一个野人握着小女孩手的美丽壁画,真可爱。右边还有戴帽子的野人!

野人之屋的原入口处,这是一个野人握着小女孩手的美丽壁画,真可爱。右边还有戴帽子的野人!

在1967年10月20日, Roger Patterson和Bob Gimlin骑马深入美国加州北部的森林里。他们沿着Bluff Creek前行,Bluff Creek是Humboldt县Klamath河的支流。突然他们看见一个野人快步走离他们,而他们的马儿也在受惊。幸运的是,他们把当时的情景录了下来。 Patterson当时赶紧下马,握住录像机往野人的方向边跑边拍摄,捕捉到了非常精彩而珍贵的视频。野人的出没据说是非常鬼祟的,人们很难捕捉到它们的踪影。这段视频总共有23.85尺长,有965帧,长度为59.5秒,每秒16帧。视频里显示一个雌性的野人大步和快步走开,你可以清楚看到她腿上的肌肉,她的胸部和她转头的姿势。这段视频马上在全世界引起了骚动,摄住了成千上万人的想象力,让更多人对野人产生了兴趣。当我把这段视频给我的藏人朋友们看时,他们说视频里的野人和他们亲眼见到的很相似,他们说这话的时候毫不眨眼。自从那个视频发表之后,很多人,包括专家们和科学家们,都尝试去证明,或者驳斥视频的真实性。很多猿类学家们认为视频不是假的。从那时开始,这个视频中的野人就成了著名的Patty,而她走路时被捕捉到的姿势则成了野人的经典姿势。这个视频被称为Patterson-Gimlin视频,或简称Patty。你可以看到很多根据Patty的形象而制作成的艺术品,雕刻,泥塑,海报,画作,贴纸等等琳琅满目的周边产品。

在我的博客里,有一个专门为野人而设的分类,它目前有52篇全世界关于野人的文章,纪录片,研究报告和目击者叙述,你可以点击这里进入该分类阅读: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/yeti-bigfoot-sasquatch

克切拉开办了人野人宇宙有限公司(Bigfoot Universe Sdn Bhd),它是一间位于马来西亚彭亨州文冬靠近克切拉禅修林的二手货商店。既然野人是我的嗜好,我也吩咐一些克切拉人每个周末在文冬的文化街野人跳蚤市场售卖价格相宜的二手货,为克切拉的佛法活动筹款。现在,这个每周的野人跳蚤市场已经发展成了拥有自家店屋的野人商店。我们有很多美好的忠实顾客。为了庆祝他们的支持,詹拉章团队烘培了野人小甜饼跟它们分享。我们目前还没有很多的野人商品,但有很多其他的二手货如衣物,厨房用品,玩具,公仔,拼图,艺术品……你说得出的我们都什么。我买了野人小甜饼模具给他们烘培野人小甜饼。这个野人小甜饼庆祝所有克切拉团员们和在文冬的团员们的辛勤付出,他们不辞劳苦把佛法,大爱,加持和关怀带给周围的每一个人。我们也感激在文冬的忠实顾客们。这个小甜饼也庆祝围绕着野人的神秘,乐趣和研究,还有我对这个神秘动物的热衷。一直以来,我都非常赞叹众多克切拉人以种种善巧方式为佛陀圣教所付出的时间,努力和奉献精神。

非常感恩的
詹杜固仁波切

    There is an area near Lumbini, Nepal, they have sightings of Yeti for hundreds of years. So they have signages in the area with Yeti artwork to highlight this. Interesting. TR

    Curious about the legendary Yeti? Not sure what to believe? Here is an article that explores a range of sources, from folktales to newspaper reports, detailing sightings and encounters with the elusive creature, who has been a part of the very fabric of various Himalayan communities for thousands of years. Read about religious beliefs, myths, fables and stories by scholars and travellers alike, and realise that there is more to the Yeti than you previously thought.

    Dear friends,

    This meme is powerful. Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become.

    The more I know about Bigfoot the more I feel they are the original inhabitants of this planet along with reptilians like those in the old TV series ‘V’. I watch lots of Ancient Aliens series about aliens, and their theory about humans, looking at how the planet at one point were neanderthals, and in a span of 10,000 years the humans had intelligence of modern day humans, and also the type of plants cultivated by humans, there was no way it could have happened via natural evolution. They attributed that Lucy (from the movie Lucy) ‘leap’ due to advanced genetic engineering. That humans are a slave race to their alien masters, at some point in human history, they found ways to overcome their alien masters.

    Enough about aliens, yeah there are so many credible witnesses, of Bigfoot / Yeti all over the US and countries in the Himalayas and some of these witnesses are unformed personnel who are taught to observe. Bigfoot in Malaysia is called Orang Mawas, this is an article back in 2006, some people trekked through Kota Tinggi to try and locate Orang Mawas. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/the-unknown-world-how-i-tracked-bigfoot-through-the-malaysian-jungle-5335503.html

    So Bigfoot could be closer than we think!

  14. Echeah on Sep 28, 2017 at 11:19 pm

    That’s a great idea and they look delicious! They should be put for sale to raise funds! It’s a great way to attract people to the store and indirectly to the dharma. At least before someone gets initiated into Buddhism or any spiritual practice, there must be a way to interest them or draw them by non-spiritual means.

  15. Jason on Sep 28, 2017 at 2:11 am

    Is great to know that a new Big Foot store is ready to serve local community. Big Foot Store had many items from A to Z for visitors to bring home. Besides that, many Tibetan rituals stuff also available in this store.
    I’m so surprised that Big Foot cookies also available. The cookies in Big Foot shape and look yummy. I must try it in future visit.
    I wish Big Foot store will sustain and bring more people close to Dharma. I really appreciate Rinpoche and many Kecharian for the contributions in order to make all these happened.

  16. Wylfred Ng on Sep 25, 2017 at 12:04 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    野人饼干很特别, 也非常符合野人跳蚤市场的主题。
    送饼干给野人跳蚤市场的顾客也可以让他们觉得有新鲜感, 以后也会带更多人去野人跳蚤市场。

    当然野人跳蚤市场的最终目的是要把佛法带给更多的人。 也是仁波切一个善巧的方式传法。 现在文冬野人跳蚤市场已经赢得口碑, 也愿更多人可以通过野人跳蚤市场认识克切拉

    谢谢

  17. Liang Jing on Sep 24, 2017 at 10:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. The Bigfoot cookies look delicious?. I wish I would meet Bigfoot one day and communicate with Bigfoot. It’s nice to see more people going to Bigfoot store and connect with Kechara and learn more about dharma, and the knowledge about improving their lives and become a happier and helpful person.

  18. Cc on Sep 24, 2017 at 8:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. It is indeed a good way to spread dharma and Bigfoot.
    Would love to try one.?

  19. Chris Chong on Sep 21, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting way to attract more crowd to Big Foot Flea Market. This shows Rinpoche’s skillful way of bringing and attracting more people to Dharma.

    Thank you Pastor Yek Yee and team to be able to run such a nice little store to support Dharma work ! I am fortunate to be able to contribute to make Big Foot Flea market better.

  20. Alice Tay on Sep 21, 2017 at 1:47 am

    Rejoice!
    This is wonderful to see the team, who has followed Rinpoche’s advice very well to work out and organized the weekly Bigfoot Flea Market in Bentong, Pahang. Now, it has blossomed into a Bigfoot store at its own shop lot building. Furthermore, its Facebook has been created and updated the latest posts at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bigfoot%E3%81%AEstorage-%E9%87%8E%E4%BA%BA%E3%81%AE%E5%82%A8%E5%AD%98%E5%B1%8B/129014147685241?ref=br_rs

    This is one of the creative ideas and skillful means from Rinpoche in spreading the dharma to many others. Now, another interesting and it was my first time to see these Bigfoot cookies. These cookies are rewarded to the customers in return for their loyalty.

  21. Tsem Rinpoche on Sep 20, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    These framed pictures will be presented to our Bigfoot stores in Bentong, Malaysia. It will be nice to decorate the place and share more about Bigfoot to the local crowd. ??☺️?

    Rinpoche never seizes to amaze me with ideas to help others. This is another perfect example how Rinpoche would come up with Bigfoot cookies for the Bigfoot Store. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to have taken part in the cookies making. The team worked well together to have it done. May I learn to be like my Guru to always think out of the box to help others.

  23. Karma Lama on Sep 20, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    Thank You, Rinpoche la for sharing us such an amazing article about Bigfoot, I am very happy to learn about Bigfoot and its history. In Tibet bigfoot is very famous to help other great lamas.

    Thank You
    Karma Lama

  24. Samfoonheei on Sep 20, 2017 at 1:29 am

    Having Bigfoot cookies for all people at the flea market is a wonderful idea and a way to attract more people to the flea market . From there they get to know more about Kechara Forest Retreat as well..I have been to flea market before i could see alot of interesting items on sales.
    Big foot indeed has attracted more people closer to Dharma too .Most of the Bentong folks know about Bigfoot and Kechara related.
    The Bigfoot cookies looks cute and i am sure it tastes yummy . The Tsem Ladrang staff did a wonderful job baking such a delicious cookies. I do hope can get to taste it in my next trip to Bentong.
    Thank You Rinpoche for having the idea of setting the Bigfoot Flea Market and now have cookies too. Rinpoche will always use ways to bring Dharma close to everyone .

  25. Lim Han Nee on Sep 19, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for inspiring the waking up of Bentong folk and visitors to Bentong with the creation of a Bigfoot store to draw Bentong folk and people from elsewhere to Dharma. Thank you Pastor Yek Yee and team for setting up the store. Bigfoot is new and exciting to the people of Bentong and the store is a novelty to them. Bigfoot being real -half man and half animal – and not merely mystical is something they can relate to.

    What great ideas to draw people to Dharma! First a Bigfoot store with interesting preloved items for sale that people like -clothing, kitchenware and the like.Now Bigfoot cookies!The cookies will definitely appeal to all who who come back again and again to visit the store and pull or to the store !

    The latest scientific analysis – through the study of Bigfoot’s dermal ridges and vocal tracts and the like – is showing up more and more concrete evidence that the scriptures are correct in saying that Bigfoot does exist. Wow! Won’t Bentong folk be absolutely thrilled when the day comes that they get to see an unmistaken real life Bigfoot captured on camera!

  26. Cynthia Ng on Sep 19, 2017 at 9:30 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for the Bigfoot cookies treat to all of us and for all the peoples who supported Bigfoot@storage.

    Thanks for Rinpoche conceptualised this fantastic idea of flea market and now Bigfoot flea market growing big to have a shoplot in Bentong.

    All the customers very happy to receive Rinpoche blessing of cookies. For them is not just a cookies but is a caring and sharing for them from Rinpoche.

    From Bigfoot@storage and weekly flea market many peoples are getting familiar with Kechara Organisation and Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Many of them recommended their family and friends visit Kechara Forest Retreat and Bigfoot@storage when they travel back to Bentong.

    Thank you Rinpoche kindness and blessing more and more people connected to Dharma through Bigfoot.

    At last i want to thanks all Ladrang team who make the Bigfoot cookies all day night. It is delicious!

    Love ❤️
    Cynthia Ng

  27. Pastor Adeline Woon on Sep 19, 2017 at 2:20 am

    Rinpoche always has creative and interesting ideas in bringing dharma to people. In fact, Rinpoche is very creative with everything. ✨ No one would ever thought about bringing bigfoot to Bentong, or educate people about it, not to mention spreading dharma through it. Because of Rinpoche, Bentong now has another interesting spot to attract local and international tourists.❣️

    Rinpoche went further to get the bigfoot mould for cookies to be made so those visiting the shop will be treated with freshly home-baked bigfoot cookies! Rinpoche shared earlier that Patterson-Gimlin bigfoot was named after Patterson as Patty. Patterson is a name for male, while Patty is for female (and a short form for Patricia). It was named after Patterson because he was the one who took the shot. Gimlin was holding a gun pointing at the bigfoot to cover Patterson in case of bigfoot attack.

    Bigfoot was also found outside of Kentrul Thubten Lamsang’s (H.E. Tsem Rinpoche) cave and was said to be trained by Kentrul Thubten Lamsang to send messages to the villagers. Bigfoot is trainable and not always disruptive as they are known to be generally. Kentrul Thubten Lamsang capabilities in training Bigfoot shows his level of spiritual attainments in subduing these wild beast’s mind into obeying his instructions.

    The next time when you travel to Bentong, do visit Kechara’s very own and unique Bigfoot shop and enjoy what we have prepared for you. Don’t forget to taste the yummy Bigfoot cookies too!?

    Dear Rinpoche

    谢谢Rinpoche的关怀,叫人做的野人饼干,给工作人员和顾客吃,今天把野人饼干送给顾客吃,他们非常高兴。

    要求他们拿着饼干跟野人壁画拍照,也非常开心。他们都说饼干好吃。
    一个些小小的动作和送上一个小小饼干,顾客都觉得好温馨。

    其实关心关怀不需太多动作,不需要你送上什么名贵的礼物,只要你是真心诚意的跟人交流,关怀他人。就算送一个小小的野人饼干,他们都感觉的温馨快乐,我们有可以看到顾客开心的笑容。

    佛法可以通过不一样的方法来利益他人。就好像野人储存屋或是野人跳蚤市场。

    当初Rinpoche要做野人储存屋,还要每个星期六去野人跳蚤市场,我会都觉得跟佛法会有关系吗?,卖二手货的东西,像做生意比较多,会把佛法带给人?
    有点想不通。想不通不要紧,Rinpoche说做就做。
    原来佛法可以有很多不同的方法带给人,看上去还有点不通,可是做了就会有效果。
    不敢是野人储存屋还是野人跳蚤市场。

    通过野人储存屋还是野人跳蚤市场
    慢慢开始就有人认识克切拉禅修林,只有他们看到我们野人,就会说你就是那个有最大财王的克切拉禅修林。

    开始的时候就说不准,现在可以说出克切拉。
    这就是上师的善巧的把佛法传给每个众生,一个看起来好像有点不通,但是让他们留下了一个深深的印记,看野人就会说出克切拉,有些不起眼的东西,让他人对佛法产兴趣影响他们的一生。也给了一个机会让众生与佛法结缘留下深深的印记,这就是上师说的善巧方便的一个方法。
    在这里祝福Rinpoche 身体健康,常转法轮。

    谢谢??

    Dear Rinpoche, you’re always full of surprises and cool ideas! Lol!!!…. This bigfoot cookies is a cool one! ? I can’t wait to get some for myself…hehe!! . I’m very happy to see Kechara has more interesting stuffs and hope more to come in the near future! Good Luck to Bigfoot cookies! Bigfoot is in Malaysia! Lol!!!????

  30. Pastor David Lai on Sep 18, 2017 at 8:29 pm

    This is soooo cool! It is cute and unusual to have little Bigfoot cookie attraction in Bentong. Like much of Rinpoche’s blogpost, there is always additional info about Bigfoot. Its interesting to read about the Bigfoot info especially the Patterson-Gimlin footage or ‘Patty’.

    Its cool that we have this footage and its just too bad that we don’t have even more convincing evidences of Bigfoot aside from footprints and eyewitness accounts. This leads me to think that Bigfoot must have some sort of psychic ability or more acute instincts that allow them to have stealth and evade humans for so long. It’s nice to see this interest/hobby of rinpoche take root as something beneficial, fun and interesting for people.

  31. Pastor Tat Ming on Sep 18, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    The Bigfoot cookie is such a brilliant way to touch people’s heart especially the customers who had been supporting us all this while. Tsem Ladrang Team baked nice cookies. I had tasted a few of the delicious Bigfoot cookies yesterday evening and I believe they can become one of our popular merchandise! They make a good conversation piece too!

    Thank You Rinpoche for manifesting the Bigfoot Flea Market which has evolved into the Bigfoot Store!

    Rinpoche is always innovating on how to surprise the regular customers of the Big Foot store, and takes care of the Kecharians in Bentong, and the Puja team too.

    I guess I will pop by for a treat the next time I am in Bentong ?

  33. Tan Soon Huat on Sep 18, 2017 at 12:21 pm

    I have made my commitment to visit Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) for homage to my Guru and center in every home trip from China which is about 3 ~4 months once. I found out that there is always new exciting thing coming up in every of my visit to KFR. In my last visit, I paid visit to under-construction Kechara House Bentong. In this visit, I visited the Manjushri Nagarakshasa, however, I did not manage to visit the Bigfoot second hand store but I will definitely visit it next time. Thank You to all the Kecharians working so hard to assist Rinpoche to bring Dharma to people. When I was in KFR last weekend, I managed to talk to a few visitors (both first time and return visitors) to KFR, they are from all over Malaysia such as Penang, Kuala Lumpur, locals from Bentong etc. Most of them do not know much about Kechara or even Dharma, they visited Kechara Forest Retreat is mainly due to compassion of Rinpoche and Kecharians to bring them one step closer to Dharma.

    I think my daughter could be the first one who tried the Bigfoot cookies, she seldom take this type of cookies but she one shoot finished eating a couples of them, it showed how delicious of these Bigfoot biscuits. I managed to steal a bite from her and it was very delicious and the shape is so cute and attractive. Thank You to Victor, Chris Chong and Sofi.
    ??
    I heard that Bigfoot is primate creature who even help to pass message between High Lamas to spread Dharma. I sincerely pray that they will remain unharmed and continue to help the High Lamas who doing retreat in forest.

    Thank You with folded hands to Rinpoche and All Kecharians for working so hard to benefit all sentient beings. I wish I could be part of the team in future.

    My daughter and me

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I would like to thank you Rinpoche all the care and love given to us. Rinpoche always use skillful method to bring Dharma to everyone, and this Bigfoot Cookie is wonderful idea not only to treat the visitor and loyal customer, it is a bridge to connect them and bringing Dharma to them.

    The bigfoot cookies is cute and out of odinary, it is delicious too, surely the customer will be surprised at the odd shape and the free cookies. The Bigfoot Cookies will be a great topic to discuss and introduce who bigfoot is, and where they can go and research and understand more about Bigfoot, only at https://www.tsemrinpoche.com.

    Love and care,

    Frederick Law

    I want Bigfoot cookies! How interesting.

    It is a fantastic idea to have Bigfoot cookies in the Bigfoot Store in Bentong. Many stuff and peripherals can also be made with Bigfoot image to attract international tourists and the locals. Bentong is fast becoming a must visit destination which Bigfoot Store could capitalise on.

  36. Tsem Rinpoche on Sep 18, 2017 at 5:36 am

    This is one of the better documentaries on Bigfoot. Very interesting.
    I find watching Bigfoot documentaries relaxing and at the same time intriguing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB8nj-oIqYs

  37. Sofi on Sep 18, 2017 at 1:48 am

    This is an exciting development for the town of Bentong. It is already fast becoming an attraction to take pictures with the BigFoot mural and a must visit for tourists. These delicious BigFoot cookies will be another attraction for kids and adults alike. Interests in BigFoot are very much alive in many countries but had been illusive to the cameras, so it is incredible that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin was able to capture such a clear picture of “Patty” the female BigFoot. She was clearly aware of both men as she looked directly at them whilst walking away. What an amazing evidential proof of BigFoot’s existence.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always thinking of ways to improve people’s lives, to bring them closer to the Dharma which provides the salvation to many of our problems. May more people continue to benefit from Rinpoche’s kindness, to be able to receive the Dharma to transform for the better and for those seeing the transformation to also wish for the better. Maybe one day BigFoot will grace Kechara with a visit. ?

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for having this bigfoot shop in Bentong. This shop add on to the Eco Tourism in Bentong. Pastor Yek Yee is a woman of her words, she always able to manifest what Rinpoche requested her to do.

    With these nice cookies, the family and especially the kids will love it. People are always first attracted by food, and normally funny and tasting food caught a lot of attention. I love the shop name- Bigfoot Universe Sdn Bhd.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always have ways to bring more people into dharma through various methods.

    ?♥️Freon

  39. Lew on Sep 17, 2017 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks to Rinpoche’s brilliant idea, Bentong now would have another attraction: The unique Bigfoot cookies!

    I have not really go in depth with all the paranormal phenomena before I met Rinpoche. Due to Rinpoche’s persistency in introducing these paranormals (such as bigfoot, aliens, ancient mysteries, etc) to me, I started to question a lot of things, and become more open to spiritual. Believe it or not, these paranormal phenomena actually made me look into spiritual. With the bigfoot cookies being available in Bentong, I pray that bigfoot can become mainstream in this part of the world, and more and more people will get the blessing of Kechara and Rinpoche. ??

    It is very beautiful. The house you wish for in Colorado is a dream which is waiting to be fulfilled into reality but this one is real. You will find you won’t have any problems going for retreats when you feel you want to have a change of environments or to get away.
    A perfect place for prayers, meditation and retreats.Thank you very much for the good article with nice pictures.

    Nearly everyone has had weird, scary experiences, things that happen in life that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation. Unexplained at times. For me I am not scare as long as I do not disturb them. In fact feel sad for them, will dedicate my prayers to them now since prayers can help them. Ghost and spirit haunting always seem to be up to mischief at times. Watched those videos……interesting when the mysterious and unexplained happens such as the ‘moving pint’ incident at the pub. Interesting sharing of ghost footage taken in different pubs around the world.

    Andy Mattia a friend of our Lama…Tsem Rinpoche lost and found after 24 years . Rinpoche had not forgotten about him and recollected some of the finest moments of life with him. Its not too late , at least for a moment Rinpoche knew of his passing and had a picture of him after all these long years. A friend like Andy whom Rinpoche do not want to lose as he was kind and generous ,helping Rinpoche during the most difficult times at Los Angeles, California. Interesting read of how the writers managed to search and search without giving up and found it at last .Interesting video too.

    Everyone in the world has the right to practice what one ‘s own religion, and beliefs. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. Its their choice and no one are above the law saying one should or should not pray to this and that. Our lama Rinpoche had been targeted all this years just because Rinpoche chose to continue practicing Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche had been abused online with all sorts of ugly words or so. Dorje Shugden ‘s practitioners been discriminated is really sad, just because one religious beliefs. NOT only that Rinpoche’s student too targeted using nasty words as well. Dorje Shugden is accused to be a evil spirit, they should checked and read the history and origin before commenting. Recently i did received nasty and disgusting comments too on my postings in FB. Who are they to comment , such a nonsense . Well they will soon have to swallow their own words.
    Those Dorje Shugden practitioners are not allowed to participate in many events , denied service and so forth. Reading all the untrue and nonsense comments , felt sickening and shocking. As Buddhist we should respect each other and make peace , harmony not ‘war’.
    Thank you for this sharing ,hopefully more are aware of what the ban on Dorje Shugden has caused. Enough is enough , may the ban soon be history.

    Truly a great teacher and after years of wandering, the first monastery in the Ajahn Chah tradition was found followed by many monasteries and continues to flourish.He left the world a legacy of a GREAT TEACHER of his teachings,and realizations of the Buddha dharma.
    Despite all this, Ajahn Chah attracted an increasing number of followers who wanted to become his disciples. Thank you very much for the good sharing.

    For more than a thousand years, artists have played a key role in the cultural life in Asia. At Tibet, Kashmir, and Nepal their arts flourished as its equally important part of their culture, architecture and their way of living to the outer world. The artist using art to express their knowledge, skills . The art painting reveal the way of lifestyle and strong belief they have in Buddhism. From the book ‘Arts from the Rooftop of Asia , Chinese has influence in the Tibetan paintings of thangkas and many art paintings in the region. Religious influence on Nepalese handicrafts. Interesting book revealing the history of arts with rare and precious pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Very touching watching the short video, how affection and love the cat . The dead owner must have treated well and gave a lot of love to this cat . Well the lovely cat hugs and leaning its face against the video screen. Animals cannot tell us their feelings and thoughts, but they can use touch and body language to communicate. Animals do express emotion, such as grief and joy, just like one of us. They can be very loyal and protective. Do not hurt them , give them care and love.

    H. E.the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized as reincarnate lama, the by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. He was known for teaching the Buddha Dharma and providing spiritual advice to thousands around the world. He was one of the lamas who openly fought the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice by the Tibetan leadership. He paid a heavy price for his devotion to his gurus and commitment on the practice of Dorje Shugden. He was well known as a loving prolific teacher, scholar, writer, yogi and a great tantric master. That was before the ban , sadly all his student turned against him as such he moved to Nepal . He worked tirelessly to spread Dharma till he entered parinirvana.
    H E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is back, with at least 20,000 people in attendance of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation was enthroned as per tradition. The over respond attendance of the enthronement is an auspicious omen for things to come having a lama taking rebirth inside Tibet. A reincarnation of a great lama is back as proof that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms as claims by the Tibetan leadership. Looking at those rare, precious pictures of the grand enthronement paints a thousand words. Thousands came in droves to welcome the young incarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Zaya Pandita Luvsanperenlei a prolific writer was a reincarnation of one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciples and also a key disciple of Drepung Monastery’s Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. He had composed books, wrote numerous texts and prayers. Even translated other works, Buddhist texts from Tibetan language to Oirat language while still serving the religious needs of the Oirat tribes in Dzungaria, Mongolia . Zaya Pandita spread Tibetan Buddhism to the Oirats, the Khalkha and even the Kalmyk people as far as in Russia. Zaya Pandita developed the Clear Script. He also wrote a biography of the First Khalkha Jetsundampa Zanabazar. Interesting read.

    The Mahabodhi temple is a UNESCO World heritage site, and been one of the 7 wonders of the Buddhist world has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly. It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment and under the Bodhi Tree. Its sad as it was targeted by terrorist, a series of ten bombs exploded in and around the Mahabodhi Temple complex. That was in 2013, early morning serial explosions rocked the Mahabodhi Temple injuring 2 monks and
    destroying certain parts in the pond of the Mahabodhi Temple. Windows were shattered at one of the buildings, while a wooden door at a small temple was destroyed. Luckily the temple inside was intact. The security of the temple was then tightened after this incident ever since . Some metal detectors and more cops and checkpoints were put in place. Attacks on Buddhists are rare in India, but these unfortunate incident somehow did happen.

    Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. Sunni Islam is, by far, the most widely practiced religion in Tajikistan. Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. Beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The status of respect for religious freedom eroded during recent years. Government policies reflected a concern about Islamic extremism .Tajikistan is unique in the world because it is illegal for people under age 18 to practice religion publicly, which includes attending mosques. Women are not allowed by the government to enter certain mosques and wearing black hijabs. Shops are not allowed to sell too and women are to wear traditional Tajik colours. Not only that additionally to it, the government places strictly limits on pilgrimage visits. As reportedly they harassed devotees by forcibly shaving their beards which are not allowed. Hundreds of thousands of men even children as young as seven years old in Tajikistan arrested in recent years for wearing a beard. Banning beards and dresses is really odd. It’s the government campaign against the adoption of Islamic cultural practices. Sad human rights within Tajikistan were been violated and basic human rights remains limited . Tajikistan continues to struggle with human rights till today.Interesting read of government’s fear leading to problems further.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

The Unknown

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

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