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!

    Pastor Tat Ming 🙏

    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

  35. Irene Lim on Sep 18, 2017 at 7:27 am

    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. 🙏🙏

    Tsongkhapa praised Drakpa Gyeltsen for his strict mastery of the monastic codes. He is known for his writing on the Vinaya as well as on the Sarvadurgatiparisodhana tantra. Most of his known compositions are currently unaccounted for.

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

    The serene and majestic Mount Fanjing (or Fanjing Shan 梵凈山), its peaks towering above the cloud banks, is steeped in Buddhist lore and tradition. ‘Fanjing’ (梵凈) means ‘Buddhist tranquillity’. In another explanation, the mountain received its name “Fanjing”, as an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means “Brahma’s Pure Land”. Mount Fanjing is also called Yuejing (Moon Mirror) Mountain because the temple at its peak can be seen reflected on the surrounding smooth rock on a clear moonlit night.

    Mount Fanjing is part of the Wuling Range in south-western China’s Guizhou Province. Its highest point stands 2,572 meters above sea level and the misty summit is the highest of the entire range. For centuries, both the mountain and the surrounding jungles have been a sanctuary for Buddhist masters seeking solitude in nature. Numerous Buddhist temples are spread across the peaks and slopes, most dedicated to Maitreya and Buddha Shakyamuni. Maitreya, or The Next Buddha, is the patron Bodhisattva of Mount Fanjing.

    In an area of some 120 square kilometres, not far from the picturesque Mount Huangshan, and located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, is a haven that is nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountain. Here, in a verdant landscape of pine trees and walls of tall swaying bamboo, lined with streams, waterfalls, hidden caves and rocky configurations, 99 peaks rise up from the soil and protrude through the clouds. The tallest peak is called Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings) that sits at an elevation of 1,342 metres above sea level. This summit is well known, as are eight of the nearby peaks – Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

    Together, the peaks are known as Jiu Hua Shan (Mount Jiu Hua) or the Nine Glorious/Heavenly Mountains and are considered to be the abode of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, known as Dizangwang Pusa in Chinese.

    Jiu Hua Shan is one of the four holiest sites of Chinese Buddhism. The other three are Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Emei in Sichuan and Mount Putuo in Zhejiang.

    Pu Tuo Shan, also known as Mount Putuo is located on an island southeast of Shanghai, in the Zhoushan prefecture of Zhejiang province in China. Pu Tuo Shan is believed to be the bodhimanda (place of awakening) of Avalokitesvara, more familiarly known as Guan Yin in China. Due to this believe, Pu Tuo Shan gained its place as one of the five holy mountains in Buddhism and flocks of pilgrims visit this place all year round to get blessings.



    During the Tang Dynasty, Pu Tuo Shan became the center of Chinese Buddhism solely for Guan Yin, while the silk road was being constructed and developed. Ever since then, Pu Tuo Shan has been the main destination for all Guan Yin worshipers. Guan Yin (or Chenrezig, or Avaloketishvara), resides as the patron Bodhisattva on Mount Putuo.

    Pu Tuo Shan consists of many temples and monastic institutes, besides being a place of study for the holy Dharma, it is also a place where many people visit for geological, marine and forestry studies.

    Being together as a family builds family unity, creates wonderful memories for children and is a great way to relieve stress and instill family values. Nice to know about Kechara’s land is rich to to grow organic vegetables that is free of pesticides and chemicals. As we know that organic foods are much more healthier than non organic for many reason. It is pricey but rich in nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

    Though organic foods have become more and more popular recently, parents need to start making the correct choices for their children on a daily basis. Thanks for the sharing, had a good view of the fresh and healthy greenery vegetables. Felt very happy for the son who had a great time to work together with his father.

    Despite of all those hardships, Rinpoche had gone through, with Rinpoche having a strong imprint, courage and determination Rinpoche was where today. Rinpoche had to work at Fotomat, for a living to support himself , got robbed , meeting customers and so forth. Rinpoche yet remained happy as Rinpoche could carry on as usual doing long sadhana of Vajra Yogini and Heruka and many mantras.
    Back at his studio apt of Fenmore Apts, Rinpoche could do sadhana and prostrations in the room while his friends will be singing. Not everyone could concentrate with the noise but Rinpoche could. That’s incredible in such a situation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Rinpoche’s encounter happening before during and after Rinpoche met HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Its an encouragement , inspiration for us .

Wow …Rinpoche for seen in all the constructions of Kechara Forest Retreat . Truly amazing, the planning of the hall and those statues as well . Rinpoche would always involved whatever he could for the benefits of all from A to Z. Rinpoche has such wisdom, compassion, love, care and true connection with all of us.. It’s the connection and humanity of a teacher and that is something really beautiful to see.

    Sentient beings come to this present life from their previous lives and take rebirth. Positive karma are created and their imprints remain on the consciousness. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be a monk, since young. He had a very strong imprints from a previous existence , that Rinpoche enjoyed drawing images of Buddha and keen to read Buddhist books. Rinpoche will somehow go and looked for Buddhist Temple to practice Dharma teachings without his foster parent knowledge. Rinpoche could be a movie star but Rinpoche chose to be a monk where Rinpoche would benefit to all sentient beings. Well, Rinpoche had since kept his vows until the last day . Rinpoche did say before that the happiest days of his life was at the monastery serving his teachers.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this short post.

    The Guangxi Community in Bentong

    Bentong is one of the few towns in Malaysia which has a majority of Guangxi Chinese within the Chinese community. Based on the information I gathered from the Bentong Guangxi Association, it is estimated that around 75% of the Chinese population in Bentong can safely trace their ancestry back to Guangxi Province, China. Notably, about 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Ratsag is a contraction of Ra Lotsawa’s clan name and the Tibetan expression tsagsutsu, which means “success.” This indicates that Ratsag Monastery was the last of the set of 108 monasteries that Ra Lotsawa pledged to build. His connection to Ra Bende Yonten Gyalpo of the inscription, aside from sharing the same family name, remains unknown. Nevertheless, the occupants of the monastery and the local people all continue to regard Ratsag Monastery as being founded by Ra Lotsawa.

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
