H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s 48th Birthday

Every 24th October, Kecharians and our friends have the merit to celebrate our beloved Guru H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s birthday. 48 years ago, Rinpoche was born in Taiwan to a Tibetan father and a Mongolian princess mother (you can read more about Rinpoche’s biography here or in this book!). After much hardship and the many challenges Rinpoche has undertaken to bring Dharma to Malaysia and the rest of the world, this year we had the privilege of celebrating Rinpoche’s birthday in a peaceful environment of our very own retreat land, Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR).

A Guru’s birthday is not quite like any other. It is the day that our Guru chose to be reborn into our realm, in order to turn the wheel of Dharma for all sentient beings. For those who view their teachers as an enlightened Being, and who view their teacher’s actions as that of an enlightened Being’s, it means the teacher’s birthday is one of the most important days for them. For them, the Guru’s birthday is viewed as an opportunity to accumulate immeasurable merits for their teacher’s long life, for their own practice and for the success of their organisation’s endeavours.

Rinpoche’s birthday celebration started at 10 am, when many of Rinpoche’s students gathered in front of Wisdom Hall’s iconic outdoor Lama Tsongkhapa statue to participate in the animal liberation activity. Under the guidance of Pastor Adeline, Rinpoche’s students recited the Medicine Buddha mantra for over 45 minutes to bless the 350 birds before setting them free.

KFR for the remainder of the day was a bustling hive of activity because this year, we had many more reasons to celebrate 24th October. Not only was the day a joyous occasion for Rinpoche’s students, but it was also particularly special for one of Rinpoche’s long time students and friend, Datuk Eric Tan. Having just been awarded the title of Datuk Wira earlier in the day, Datuk Wira Eric also celebrated the expansion of his family by witnessing the wedding blessing of his eldest son, Edwin Tan.

It was the first such blessing to take place on our holy land. The bride and groom recited prayers to Tara, requesting her blessings for their union. Holding hands under the gaze of Shakyamuni, they then recited specially prepared wedding vows to one another, promising, “I will be faithful to you. I will support you in all difficulties. I will improve my weak points for you. I will defend you. I will respect your beliefs. I will share what I have with you. I make this promise to you.

As the wedding took place in Wisdom Hall, guests for Rinpoche’s birthday took the opportunity to tour KFR. Nearly 500 students attended Rinpoche’s birthday, many of them visiting KFR for the first time. Our newly ordained pastors were kept busy as they guided the visitors around our retreat land, explaining Rinpoche’s vision for providing Malaysians with a place to retreat, relax and unwind from stressful city life. Needless to say, many of the guests were impressed by how much KFR has changed from the time we acquired the land last year.

After the tour, everyone made their way to Dukkar Apartments where dinner was served by Kechara Oasis. After a hearty vegetarian meal, guests adjourned to Wisdom Hall to participate in the Lama Chopa Puja. Led by Pastor Chia Song Peng and Pastor JJ Chong, Kecharians requested the blessings of our lineage lamas for our Guru’s long life. The prayers were also dedicated towards the accumulation of merits for us to receive Rinpoche’s Dharma teachings and to request for the success of Rinpoche’s activities.

It was a day like what Rinpoche has always worked for – an event held on our land, in our buildings, with pujas and blessings done by our local Malaysians, and catered for by our own vegetarian restaurant. It is this vision that is slowly coming to life in Kechara Forest Retreat, a place where Malaysians will be able to do something to help other Malaysians. Thus on behalf of all Kecharians, we wish Rinpoche a very happy birthday and offer our gratitude to Rinpoche for 48 years of benefiting sentient beings. May we have the merits for Rinpoche to remain long with us, for all of Rinpoche’s visions to materialise and for us to always be able to serve our lama.

    Its was such a wonderful and auspicious day to have seen kechara forest retreat filled with so many visitors and students coming together for the purpose of our Guru’s Birthday. It was fun and it felt like such positive energy filled the whole place where everyone was learning and praying together for our Guru’s Long Life. I had missed the releasing pf the birds but i’m glad to see so many people attended the ceremony and its a huge relief to see so many birds set free back into nature. I would like to thank Rinpoche for giving us kechara forest retreat, a place where everyone would be able to make wishes and pray together in harmony. Every day kechara forest retreat is growing and everyday more visitors are coming from all over the world. I hope Rinpoche is happy and feeling well.

During the KFR tour that we had in the afternoon, you can see many new and excited faces, waiting to visit around the sites at KFR, along with the explanation by the pastors. Thank Yo for sharing all these wonderful pictures.

    This is the 1st major event organised by Kechara in Kechara Forest Retreat, Chamang, Bentong to coincide with Tsem Rinpoche’s birthday. We had animal liberation, a wedding blessing ceremony, short tours of the Manjuhri Hill, Wisdom Hall and Dukkar apartments for first time guests who came from afar.

    The event was attended by 400 over guests and refreshments were prepared for them before the event. Hard working staff planned this event out meticulously to ensure safety, security and car parks were taken into consideration. In all, the event was a good one for everyone who took part. May Tsem Rinpoche have long life and good health to continue turning the wheel of dharma to benefit all. Happy Birthday!

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 1, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    It is so great for us to celebrate Rinpoche’s birthday at KFR. Somehow I can’t help feeling that the people in Bentong are so fortunate to have KFR in their town 🙂 .

    24 October 2013 is a memorable and historical day for Kecharians and guests who attended Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s birthday for the first time in Kechara Forest Retreat. Thanks to the combined effort and hardworking team for the preparation, the whole day joyous event turned out successfully.

    May all of Rinpoche’s wishes come true and may Kechara Forest Retreat continue to grow to benefit many more.

  15. Wei Theng on Oct 30, 2013 at 5:57 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us a chance to celebrate your birthday at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Looking back celebrating your birthday last year at Kechara House gompa at SumwayMas, I am very grateful that this year we can have it at Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. It’s Rinpoche’s hardwork, your vision to benefit others and keep pushing us to challenge our comfort zone that we can have the Wisdom Hall, Dukkar apartment, Manjushri Hill today.
    I pray that we can have it at the main Shakyamuni hall at Kechara Forest Retreat soon. May rinpoche live long, always turn the wheel of dharma, Rinpoche’s teaching can spread far and wide and benefit all sentient beings!

    That day was an eventful and very happening day in Kechara Forest Retreat, especially during dinner time in Dukkar Apartment it was full house, people had to stand to enjoy their delicious dinner prepared by Kechara Oasis. I was fortunate enough to participate in the crew team to oversee the whole event from behind the scene to the happenings of the whole celebration ran smoothly. It’s fun to work with everyone.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team for making Kechara Forest Retreat possible.

  21. henry ooi on Oct 28, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Yes,24th October 213 would remain a memorable day for Kecharians to remember with so many people at Kechara Forest Retreat to celebrate and participate in all events as mentioned herein. The organizing team worked hard and everything went smoothly with nary a mishap or bad incident. Smiles were on everyone’s faces during and after the events, it was a joyous occasion. And the weather was sunny and hot with a small shower in the early afternoon.

  22. AdelineTan on Oct 28, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    This is the first time we celebrated our Lama’s birthday in this holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat,about 500 Kecharians and guests attended this auspicious occasion. May our precious Guru H E Tsem Rinpoche have long life and stable health to turn the wheel of dharma and may all His wishes be fulfilled. Thanks to kecharians and the committed volunteers for making this event a success.

  23. Uncle Eddie on Oct 28, 2013 at 10:28 am

    This year we have had the privilege to celebrate Rinpoche’s birthday at “Kechara Forest Retreat Land”. Students started gathering at 10am in front of Wisdom Hall’s iconic outdoor Lama Tsongkhapa’s statue for Animals Liberation, and recitation of Medicine Buddha’s mantra to bless the release of 350 Birds under the guidance of Pastor Adeline. Activity for the day also included particular special occasion of the wedding’s blessing of Datuk Eric Tan’s son (Edwin Tan), representating the first blessing of such occasion to happen on Kechara’s holy land! The day was full of joy and satisfaction, with the vision that our Kechara’s dream is slowly and steadfastly materialising to reality to benefit all beings. May Rinpoche have a long and healthy life always to guide us through in benefitting all sentient beings! Om mani padme hung.

  24. Boon on Oct 27, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Thanks for sharing this memorable event article with us! Thanks to all volunteer who made this event successfully to be carried out on last few days ago!may rinpoche able to live long. To turn the wheel of dharma!

  25. Girlie OOI on Oct 27, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    It was a hive of activities on the 24 October when Kecharians, friends and family members gathered at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR).

    It was the first time we celebrated our Guru’s birthday there; first time we had an animal liberation day; and also the first time a wedding blessing was conducted there.

    So it turned out we were there to celebrate a day of many first’s.

  26. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 27, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat burst into life in an explosion of activities to celebrate the 48th Birthday of Tsem Rinpoche, Spiritual Guide and founder of Kechara.

    The day started with the liberation of 350 birds. From then on in and around Wisdom hall and Dukkar Apartments were crowds of people walking back and forth. There was the wedding blessing ceremony of Dato Wira Eric Tan’s elder son, Edwin , and Elaine.

    In the afternoon, groups of people joined in a continuous series of tours of KFR. Many were visiting KFR for the first time.

    In the evening, 400 students joined in a long-life Lama Chopa puja for Rinpoche.

    May Kechara Forest Retreat continue to grow and develop into what has been envisioned for it by Rinpoche – a place of peace, healing,retreat and learning(especially spiritual retreat and learning) for all from around the world.

  27. Low Khjb on Oct 27, 2013 at 11:33 am

    It was an unforgettable experience to be able to be allowed to celebrate H.E.Tsem Rinpoche’s 48th Birthday at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    All the pastors,committee and volunteer did a fantastic job to make the event a success.A big”Thank you” to them.
    May we be able to celebrate our Rinpoche next Birthday at the KFR with the vision of our Rinpoche completed as intended.
    Wishing a Happy Birthday to Rinpoche,may he have a long life to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  28. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 27, 2013 at 1:05 am

    I was very fortunate to be able to attend and witness the celebration, Kecharians put in a lot of time and efforts to make the event a success. I’ve read about Pastor Jean Ai’s blog on why Rinpoche doesn’t like birthday celebrations, and I agree with that. I haven’t been celebrating my birthday for 2 years, I have to admit that I really do not like the feeling of people gathering around me and sing me happy birthday song. And I think it is a day where I can do more good deeds and dedicate to my parents cause they went through a lot of hard times when I was still in my mother’s stomach.

  29. Julien Roth on Oct 26, 2013 at 11:43 pm

    I am glad that RInpoche had an amazing Birthday, i wish i could have been there. I feel happy that Rinpoche would do so much on his birthday, when the rest of us would just be doing things on our own Rinpoche would be helping others. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  30. Kelvin Yong on Oct 26, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    Wishing Rinpoche a long life and a steady health so that he could remain with us to continue spreading the dharma which benefits all sentient beings.

  31. Sean Wang on Oct 26, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    A happy belated Birthday to His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche! Hope Rinpoche will continually live on many more years to benefit many more people. Thank you to all the volunteers and staffs for arranging this wonderful and auspicious event.

    May Rinpoche have long life, great health and constant happiness.

  32. Lucas Roth on Oct 26, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    I hope Rinpoche had a amazing day. I hope Rinpoche lives a very long time to teach everybody the dharma. Rinpoche has always been there for us so I hope everybody and Rinpoche had an amazing time.

  33. guest on Oct 26, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    I wish You, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche to celebrate your birthday. It’s a gift to your students and friends. Gathering and enjoying acceptance of your parents to give a birth to you, blessing of meeting the dharma and blessing of living 48 years, helping many sentient beings. Although I’m not a lama or monk, I celebrated my birthday to get closer to people, to actually wish them well.
    People who’d celebrate birthday with you will accomplish many merits, as they’d just wish you long life, praising not your ego, but actions which help to cease suffering of all beings.

  34. Wylfred Ng on Oct 26, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Thanks for the sharing. That day really is a memorable day for me as this is the first time i attended Rinpoche’s birthday celebration.

    I wish Rinpoche long life and turn the Dharma Wheel. So that many people will have chance to meet the dharma.

  35. Ck siah on Oct 26, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    谢谢克切拉行政部分享庆祝仁波切48岁诞辰的过程缤纷彩照。也谢谢所有为仁波切庆祝诞辰而忙的上上下下志工团队和弟子们。大家辛苦了,虽然我们知道一向来仁波切不喜欢弟子们为他庆祝诞辰, 但是为了尊敬和对上师的依止心, 我们还是要为仁波切庆祝诞辰。
    我们祈愿仁波切长驻在世常转法轮,弘扬佛法,利益众生。

    Wow what a great day …..the historic first Kalachakra initiation been held publicly in Tibet, China in the last 50 years. For most by H H the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu. Many highly attained masters and incarnated lamas and teachers and more than hundred thousand over monks and nuns attended this auspicious event. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us all. So many of them it’s a blessing for them. With so many attending this event has proves that he is indeed the unmistaken incarnation as he is claimed by some as false and a fake Panchen Lama.
    With Panchen Lama as a spiritual leader, his influence made a huge impact on the Tibetans which is on the rise, this would be wonderful. In no time they might accept Dorje Shugden’s practice. Interesting read and blessing been able to see those beautiful pictures.
    Thank You Pastor David Lai for sharing.

    Arjia Rinpoche, one of the most important religious leaders to escape Tibet since the Dalai Lama fled into exile. A close friend of HH Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama . At the age of two, he was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of the father of Tsongkhapa who is the founder of the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche has spoken openly about unity and harmony in the community during the 30th Anniversary Commemoration of HH the 10th Panchen Lama’s Maha-Parinirvana. He has advised the Tibetans to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be discriminated just because of differences basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. Dorje Shugden as made a scapegoat by the Tibetan leadership for too long . Its time someone like Arjia Rinpoche or more people to speck up for the sake of world peace and harmony. Wonderful and simple speech yet clearly he spoke bravely on fulfilling the Panchen Lama’s wishes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Arjia Rinpoche.

    To be living in such a beautiful house and nice surrounding would be really really nice! Looking at the pictures above, it makes me think of Enchanted Forest in KFR. Nature gives us all. This harmonious balance makes our souls happy.
    Houses like this are not only good for living in but working in as well. I would love to work in a environment like this. I’m sure I will be able to think better and work better.Thank you for the good article.

    American basketball legend Stephon Marbury has played 13 years in the NBA . Been professional basketball the former NBA superstar , looked to the world of Chinese basketball. Having migrated there he brought the Chinese team to national victory, winning three Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. Marbury applied for and received a Chinese “green card”, as he been popular inspiring players ,bringing the whole team a positive and fighting spirit to victory. He is the fifth American basketball player to receive a green card in China. After all not easy to apply one as a foreigner . He also earned the nickname Commissar Ma for his role as a mentor to the teammates and younger players while playing in China. Wow…China immortalised Marbury with an arena statue, and got him a postage stamp of him. That’s wonderful, as they appreciate of what he has done for China.

    All religions share a similar message of peace and tolerance despite their differences. In the history of faith, there are so many beautiful and inspiring thoughts about creating peace and harmony among communities. We should help out to the poor or homeless regardless of race and of religion. Those Buddhist monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka did a good job, in accord to Buddhist teachings. They gave out foods to the poor Muslims during Ramadan the Muslim fasting months. Looking at the pictures tells all. A wonderful way helping the hundreds poor people in the streets . That’s should be the way , well a rare example of religious harmony . Helping and giving are human strengths and weapons against the many arbitrary and malevolent dark forces that plague human existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Religion and politics are two of the hardest things to talk about. Living in a country , we should be given religious freedom to choose what we want to pray. But it not mean we are spy of that country. Disappointed the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) accuses Dorje Shugden practitioners as Chinese agents just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche has been accused by the CTA . They said that said Rinpoche was a spy and an agent paid by China. All these were definite not true at all. Rinpoche had received the Dorje Shugden’s practice 30 years ago, been passed down from Rinpoche’s Guru. Many high lamas have been practising Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years, it is ridiculous to say they were Chinese spies too. All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness. But sad the CTA ,having a fuss over it , and has created disharmony among Buddhist practitioners. It’s a matter of choice we choose to pray nothing political related to China. Just because we are Chinese , we are paid by the China , we are Chinese spies, that’s does not made sense at all. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need harmony. Hatred and conflict are often rooted in differences between people of different races and religions. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions.

    An agreement for living together by mutual consent is a marriage vow . As a similar line of thought, we believe all actual facts and in reality how and why Dorje Shugden arosed. Dorje Shugden arosed as our enlightened Dharma Protector as promised to protects the Dharma teachings. It’s a commitment between Dorje Shugden and Gelugpa lineage for more then 400 years, still going stronger despite all those lies , controversy the Tibetan Leadership trying to create. The Tibetan Leadership is trying to break this strong relationship with all the allegations on Dorje Shugden. Many highly attained lamas and masters had propitiated for Dorje Shugden for years . They cannot be wrong in their practice after all. Dorje Shugde is not a devil or spirits as claimed by some. HH Dalai Lama already said its does not harm and we can practice. With the recent speech in India at Bodhgaya on 2nd January 2020, HH dalai Lama also said that if people wish to practise Dorje Shugden as a birth deity or land god (Tibetan: kye lha yul lha), THAT WOULD BE FINE.
    Thank you Seow Choong Liang for the wonderful analogy to understand better.

    Buddhist Temples of Siem Reap , Cambodia is amazing filled with incredible architecture, Khmer Culture. The beautiful temples in Siem Reap is a must-see place when visiting. Buddhist Temples in Siem Reap each year attracted millions of visitors, especially those in the expansive Angkor Archeological Park. Well listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992, there are about 50 Buddhist and Hindu temples dating back to the 12th century within its grounds. Simply amazing to see but I have not been there yet. Would wish to see for myself those beautiful ancient architectural temples.
    Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words. So many Buddhist temples to visit .

He is one of the greatest orientalists, linguists, and encyclopedists of the century. Inspiring of a man who could speak fluently more than 30 European and Asian languages and dialects . He was a brilliant expert in Eastern culture, religion and philosophy , having spent more than 35 years abroad living in India, Mongolia ,Tibet and . As a distinguished encyclopedic-scientist, he was well known in many countries around the world. His incredible work of thangkas paintings which he authored at the tender age of only 23 and books remained a legacy.

    Very rare and precious video , to see how much affection between our Lama and Dorje Shugden was. Its not planned and of a sudden , during Rinpoche visit to that monastery and hotel, Dorje Shugden taking trance . According to the practices of Tibetan Buddhism, there are several ways to induce the trance state including dancing and music. But this was different as Rinpoche was at the monastery, a monk sudden went into trance . In the hotel an oracle monk-in-training took spontaneous trance too. While in trance, Dorje Shugden suddenly entered the oracle-monk in both occasion. Its a blessing able to see the oracles from the video.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this sharing .

    Beautiful Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, built in 1679, is the largest Gelug Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. Known as little Potala to many locals and tourist. Well this magnificent group builidngs of the monastery is so simply amazing. The main structure built in Tibetan style has a gold-covered copper roof similar to the one at the Potala Monastery in Lhasa. I was there few years back , looking at it is a blessing. It looks like a castle, a walled complex with group buildings including living quarters for monks and high lamas. I was so fortunate when I was there the monks were doing prayers . Listening to the prayers , with joy then in a tranquil place to dwell my soul.Offered some offerings to those beautiful Buddhas statues. Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, a hot destination in Yunnan, have been attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. A place worthy visiting and going on pilgrimage.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

He was famous as a sharp analyst and master of philosophical debate, as well as a powerful Tantric practitioner. He had impeccable knowledge of all rituals, art and science. After retiring , Kyabje Zong travelled intensively to the West and embarked on a highly inspiring teaching tour to many countries such as US, Canada , Europe countries and so forth.

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
