I found a place for Kechara Village!

Oct 12, 2012 | Views: 1,274

Dear friends,

We have extra five acres here at Kechara Forest Retreat and it’s almost unused. So I have decided to build Kechara Village on this land. It’s just more viable and practical for many reasons. Also it’s on our own land and I will bring the energy to this land by staying here on Kechara Village while the rest is being constructed. We don’t have to do extra fundraising as it’s on our own land! And we can begin immediately.

Liaison Jp will be in charge of Kechara Village building. We’ll clear the land and start getting the container houses on the land..if everything works fast towards the completion of Kechara Village, then I can’t go to America as I have to be around to oversee/ approve of plans/details. I wanted to go to America last week, but had to delay again because I found a new place here on KFR land which previously I did not notice to build Kechara Village. Kechara Village will be faster so I have to be around to oversee its building.

Kechara Village is very important to me because it will be a place I invite our hardworking & wonderful Kecharians to visit & stay with me to relax/recharge. I am very focused to get KV up. So we will build Kechara Village within the Kechara Forest Retreat.*

I love my Kecharians very much and respect them all so much. I want a place for them to recharge and relax so much as they all work so hard. I want Kechara Village up for my Kecharians, volunteers and special friends. Everytime I try to go USA, something comes up to stop me…it’s strange.

P.S. The picture is of me pointing from the top of the mountain on our Kechara Forest Retreat land (KFR) to the beautiful views we will have once the place is built. I like this land so much. It is 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur our capital.

We took this picture today… It was a 10 mins climb up a steep mountain and yet the view is so nice. We can climb, because a path has been cleared as well as the top of this mountain.

 
Strange Pictures captured on Kechara Forest Retreat Land:

Rajendra, Kb, Moh Mei and Paris up on the land with me…

Kb has found peace among the trees?? hehe

Pastor Loh Seng Piow in a comical moment?? A star is born!! What a actor!!

Can anyone help Pastor Loh Seng Piow…he is having a extrovert moment!

Here’s Rajendra just ‘hanging’ around our beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat land…

There’s something about KFR, it really brings happiness in people and they express it openly.

    I think this is a sweet memory for those who have worked hard in building KFR.

    Most of the Kecharians have taken KFR as their spiritual home now. Although I am not living here but I’ve taken KFR as my spiritual home too. A place that I’m longing to stay…

    Thus that’s why this paragraph is amazing. Thanks!

    Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Keep up the fantastic work!

    Many years later in future, we will look back at these images with a smile on our face and a very very contented heart.

    I remembered the conversation we had with Rinpoche after seeing a property in Janda Baik and the previous plot of land near the area that were potential for Kechara Village. We were thinking, voting and discussing pros and cons on which is better. Then about a week later, this manifested it’s opportunity… wow! All I can say is Setrap must have heard us discussing and well, showed us this land..duh! But yay!

    We’re all very very happy with the news and we now today, construction has begin. Every day a few of us Ladrang team and Liaisons would go up to see, plant grass, prepare our organic farming, have meetings and basically bring the energy up there and bit by bit putting the puzzles together. Yes it is all pretty hard work but when ur up there, u get connected back with mother nature. The feeling is price less and words cannot describe it, you need to be there to feel it yourself!

    Thank you Rinpoche for allowing us this chance of a lifetime opportunity to lead a meaningful life.

    I am here now at KFR and it has changed so much since the last time i was here! Heheh i love it here and i cant’ wait for KFR to finish because when it is done, it will benefit so many sentient beings!

    THank you Rinpoche!

  9. abby F on Nov 7, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, after working few times on the land, I really agree with what You said “There’s something about KFR, it really brings happiness in people and they express it openly”. Even though it is tired to work there because we are not used to work like this, but we love to work on the land so much. I feel glad and lucky to be part of the project, I’m happy to see our works grow there.

    Kechara Village will create a very good cause for KFR to manifest, and when we all staying and working there, we will attract more and more people to come and stay, work and have some fun! Just like what Rinpoche is doing now, Rinpoche is staying in a cabin on the land, and all of us take turn to go and work there with the Ladrang team. We will work KFR and Kechara Village out with Rinpoche for sure!

    Thank you Rinpoche for providing us this golden opportunity to be part of this great project!

  10. lucy yap on Nov 5, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for staying and building Kechara Village and Kechara Forest Retreat for our benefit.It will be a heavenly place to do our practice away from the city.May this holy and brilliant project manifest swiftly with Rinpoche’s blessings.

  11. Adrian Cho on Nov 4, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    It is a very beautiful place and feel peaceful 🙂 Also it is a nice place for those people to do their meditation and retreat… Thanks Rinpoche for sharing all this nice picture…

  12. mayy on Nov 4, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Everyday there’s progress going on at the Kechara Village and concurrently Kechara Forest Retreat too. So much different now. All help and contributions are needed so much to help to get this wonderful project up for the benefits of many. Rinpoche has been tirelessly into the nights every day to see to the progress of it. Thank you Rinpoche. Love to be there to help and sweat it out with the all the volunteers and staff there.

  13. mitra on Oct 31, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    thank you rinpoche for sharing this post . i like so much kechara village.This is really a great news! Kechara Village in KFR.Rinpoche’s work are for us and the future.

  14. June Tang (KHJB) on Oct 29, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for staying here and supervise the contructions of KFR project !! Thank you Rinpoche for all the wonderful updates and funny pictures !!Thank you Rinpoche give us this wonderful places…… ^_^!! I wish that KFR projects can complete swiftly so that our dear Guru’s wishes can come true very soon!!

  15. sweekeong on Oct 27, 2012 at 1:30 am

    Many funny pictures of SP and KB. Building Kechara Village within KFR allow all the forces, and the energy to concentrate in one area. It is also very practical when one visit KFR one can visit Kechara Village as well. The land is big it will take a some time before KFR is fully built. Kechara Village will attract the people to participate in building a very spiritual home for all us 🙂

  16. Thierry on Oct 26, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    It makes a lot of sense to have a place on KFR for people to stay, the logistic will be simplified and thus the efficiency too. This will also help for people to bound together even more. What a good idea!

  17. Pastor Yek Yee on Oct 24, 2012 at 2:56 am

    Kechara Village or KV, is Rinpoche ideal Shangri la paradise. Yes, KV, to me which is a wonderful place or called it paradise is most suitable which direct us to pureland. I believed that Rinpoche will use this place as a start point prepares us go to Vajrayogini paradise. It is really make me looking for it day and night.

    Since Rinpoche is a kid, Rinpoche already started thinking that Rinpoche can stay in a place which can see mountains, rivers, and a lot of green in surrounding. The KV is what Rinpoche exactly want, look like Rinpoche’s dream land. That is the reason why Rinpoche so excited about this land and want to build up Kechara Village in very short period. If I not mistake, that Rinpoche really want the KV will come out within five months. We all know Rinpoche style everything need fast and perfect. What Rinpoche concerns is how to benefit peoples in very short time.

    I went to Kechara Village few times, Rinpoche himself start everything from zero. Now we have few permanent and temporary roads, we can see where ladrang is, where chapel is and even we can visualized our future prayer hall can fix around 2000 to 3000 peoples and a huge cars park and so forth.

    Rinpoche always come out many new, different, unique ideas just in one or two second. Even though the idea which just come out from Rinpoche is very new… however when Rinpoche shared with all of us always very profound and wise. Seem like Rinpoche already thought about for long time. Whatever ideas Rinpoche came out, it is very detail, mature and practical. Every time, when Rinpoche shared with us his new ideas like KV, it is already conceptualize and plan well.

    I really look forward Kechara Village manifested in this few months, because it is our Shangri la. A ideal paradise for group of people who still suffering in worldly world and some even indulge into it. Shangri la is a place for people who like to live in a peace and calm environment.

    May KV manifested smoothly as soon as possible, may KV can benefit more and more people who are still suffering.

  18. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 24, 2012 at 2:12 am

    Indeed, this is the Happy Land, everyone is so happy and excited while staying on this land.

    In future, this will be Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) for the public to come to re-charge themselves, to do prayers and within it, we have Kechara Village(KV) for the Kecharian to stay and work, it is so practical and so convenient for everyone and everything to operate properly.

    For building this Kechara Village, Rinpoche has been going there almost everyday to oversee the progress, Rinpoche not just sit there and wait for it to be built, he does go there on site to see the progress, standing under the shiny hot sun whole day and make sure everything and everyone is okay. Not only Rinpoche concern about the construction, Rinpoche also concern about the workers, he always make sure they have enough to eat, they are safe and sound.

    Even for this KFR or KV, it has never be for himself, he does all these for us, he build all these for us, and well, that’s Rinpoche, he does nothing for himself but all for others, only for the benefit of others.

    Finally found heaven on earth !
    You have to be there to experience its beauty.

    Malaysians can officially give up shopping as national sport LOL

  20. Lucas Roth on Oct 20, 2012 at 2:26 am

    i hope Kechara Village is built very soon so Rinpoche can be very happy and undisturbed and i am quite sure most people would agree.

  21. Uncle Eddie on Oct 19, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    A lovely place for spiritual practice, calm, restful, natural and so beautifully illustrated out to Cynthia from your enlightened mind’s eye. We truly rejoice greatly that you have found a place in Kejara Village to be used as a private residence for invited guests and visitors to stay and pray, away from the rustling and buzzling city traffic and noises, filled with dusty and corrupted air. Its like a home within a home of spirituality at Kechara Forest Retreat, how marvellously wonderfull and auspicious!

  22. Paris on Oct 19, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I’m reading this post and typing this while I’m right here on KFR land right now with Rinpoche and a few Ladrang staff. And it’s true about the boys hanging off the trees and the tractors – KFR does bring out something freeeeeee and happy in people here. It’s exciting to see how everything is being done, with a first-hand view here – from the flattening of the grounds, to building roads, to draining out the water… and hopefully to the actual building up of the lands.

    I think there’s something amazing too that Rinpoche is building this for his students and the people who work in Kechara. How different this it to any other enterprise / organisation /company who build for the sole reason of commercial / financial expansion and gain. It’s very, very very seldom that an organisation would expand for the sake of others’ happiness, and where the real net profit is in how many people we can bring some relief and benefit to.

  23. Pastor chia on Oct 18, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Thank you rinpoche sharing with us this wonderful news about Kechara Village. Rinpoche also have the very thoughtful plan encourage students work hard toward our spiritual practice.

    I am rejoice and seeing all the daily update the progress of building Kechara Village and the most important thing is rinpoche dream come through to living near forest surrounding at the green environment. i hope very soon KFR land building completed.We will all come up here to rest and do meditation.

  24. Abby F on Oct 18, 2012 at 4:56 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for staying in Malaysia with all of us. I am very happy that Rinpoche has found a place in the forest to stay in! This is what Rinpoche wants for so many many years. And Kechara Village is for all of us, thank you Rinpoche for always taking care of us and plan things for us.

    BTW, Kechara Forest Retreat and Kechara Village on the same land, all in ONE. How nice for Kecharians especially. Hehehe! 😀

  25. Angelshooi on Oct 17, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Very good news to know that Rinpoche will not leave to US and will oversee the project of Kechara Village.

    Another good news….Rinpoche found Kechara Village on top of KFR!
    And it’s a beautiful view which can see greens and mountain right in front of the land.

    When Rinpoche lives in KV, will stabilize the land of KFR and brings good energy there and the area of Bentong! KFR will have smooth development and then KWPC soon!!!

  26. Mei Fong on Oct 17, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    From the word village, the image of a small chinese town in the TVB series pops up in my mind. Rows of traditional looking shops made out of bricks and wood. The street contains restaurants (in this case a veg restaurant) which at the back or on top of the restaurant is the rooms to stay overnight. A few other shops selling misc items. The street is also filled with small small stalls selling items like a flea market. The roads are paved with huge flat stones instead of tarmac. At night, the street is being lighted up with laterns for a cozy feeling. I dont know how our Kechara Village will end up looking but i am sure i am going to enjoy it very much also.

  27. andrew hibberd on Oct 17, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    lets get the commercial diggers off the land and use all of the local talent and local materials to create a dream for all kecharians that will be totally impermanent forever

  28. choisheem on Oct 17, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    This is such great news. So happy to read Rinpoche is staying back here to oversee the construction of KFR and KV. Thank you so much Rinpoche for taking care of us always. I hope I can also stay and recharge at Kechara Village. It is so peaceful and serene away from the hustle and bustle of city.

  29. tenzin llhamo on Oct 17, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the wonderful and uplifting news. Kechara Village is going to be fantastic! Another stepping stone for KFR and KWPC. Am very happy that Rinpoche love it there and staying there now. Thank you Rinpoche for all the wonderful updates and funny pictures of Kechara Village. I am really proud to be part of Kechara and we are going to be super HUGE! Yay!

  30. Sock Wan on Oct 16, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for being so thoughtful all the time. Everything Rinpoche do is for the benefits of others. Living in a city, we need a place to go to unwind ourselves, to be connected to the nature again and to find ourselves. When Kechara Village is up, this place will address all our modern people’s needs.

    To repay Rinpoche’s kindness, I have to work harder with consistency, to transform my mind, to cultivate good qualities in me. May I be able to do so.

  31. Lim (KH JB) on Oct 16, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    So awesome and supreme happy news… Kechara Village and KFR are on the way to manifest. We will be benefited by KV and KFR. But we should do more for the projects before we been benefited…

  32. HelenaC on Oct 15, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Even Kechara Village has not build yet but the happy faces are all around hehehe..love the pictures with all the happy face 🙂
    I really can’t wait Kechara Village to be built. Excited!! I have already felt the happiness and peace while looking at the propasal from Cynthia Lee and by reading this post 🙂 Love love love!! I would like to help and contribute in Kechara Village hehe.

  33. kenny wong on Oct 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Nice view…. so scenic, I’m very happy that things are falling into pieces…

  34. Wah Ying on Oct 15, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Yahoo, KFR and Kechara Village 2 in 1! Yes I like it.

    See how Seng Piow “releases himself to the wild”, I know the energy there is so good, yes back to the nature, to basic. We all yearn for that. Thank you Rinpoche!

  35. pat on Oct 15, 2012 at 3:02 am

    Very Beautiful view from the top…..it’s wonderful to hv Kechara Village within KFR. becos it’s so peaceful and serene with nature surroundings,we will always be happy.eg shown by KB and Rajendra just like in the Hindi movie, when we are happy we dance around the trees or hang upside down……:) Thank You Rinpoche for planning all tis wonderful things for us. May all your Dreams and Wishes come true.

  36. Paul Yap on Oct 15, 2012 at 1:20 am

  37. Cynthia Ng on Oct 14, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    一片旷阔无际的翠绿山林,是我们城市人憧憬的大自然之处。这不是梦想,仁波切细心打造的克切拉之村将要显现,那一片宽大的山林有仁波切的加持,将会带给很多众生身心灵的满足。

    有了克切拉之村,克切拉禅修林以及克切拉和平中心也随着而来,显然的将会利益无数众生。

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

  38. ysng on Oct 14, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    So much greenery. Being stuck in concrete pigeon holes all week at work is numbing. Will there be a campsite in the village so that people may have a safe place to camp overnite. Sleep under the stars, have barbecue at nite ( vegetarian of course ) , talk about dharma over a campfire, accompanied by the sound of nature. I feel relaxed already. It’ll be a big bonus to have the blessings of Rinpoche living nearby. The only lama in the village. ( hehe ).

  39. Henry Ooi on Oct 14, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Great panoramic view of the rest of KFR! This piece of land is easier and quicker to build compared to land with steep slopes, and five acres is big enough to build Kechara Village on.

    Great pics, some are comical!

  40. justin cheah on Oct 14, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Really a nice view! Overlooking a vast piece of land. Imagine waking up every morning looking down at the stupas, statues, buildings and gardens! Beauty!

  41. yenpin on Oct 14, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    克切拉村!开始动土了
    由于仁波切可以有很多在那里的和平!有很多的乐趣在那里!
    克切拉村将是一个美丽的地方,开始与最终将导致克切拉村和克切拉世界和平中心……一个梦想成真
    我们的克切拉村与仁波切弘法,将会走向世界!!!!
    谢谢你仁波切。

  42. William Chua on Oct 14, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    It is wonderful news that KV is inside KFR. Then everything is centralised in one area. While KV is up, the people there can see the progress of KFR! And the land behind is untouched and secluded from the construction site. It would be a good place for Rinpoche to live and be in the jungle and have the view of the mountains.

    Yes, I can see that the fresh air out of the city has changed some of the people there, especially our dear Seng Piow who now appears to be alive being with nature and near machines!!! Hehe… and our Nepali boys have become friends with the trees, literally hanging out with the trees.

  43. patsy on Oct 14, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    It is such good news to know that Rinpoche will not be leaving for US but to stay back to supervise the building of Kechara Village. Finally Kechara Village will be up soon so that Rinpoche can move there to stay amongst the lush green mountains and to oversee to the development of Kechara Forest Retreat. Kechara Village will be such a beautiful place to start with which will eventually lead to Kechara Forest Retreat and Kechara World Peace Center…. a dream comes true for Rinpoche and all Kecharian.

  44. Sarah Yap on Oct 14, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    I’m really glad that Rinpoche and everyone who went over to KFR to stay for a few days, look so happy there. I hope everyone managed to detox their body while they are away in KFR, which is after all going to be a holistic place on top of a spiritual place in the near future.

    I hope that KV will be up in these 5 acres quickly so that Rinpoche can live in the mountains just like how Rinpoche wanted all these while for us, to a conducive environment so that everyone can receive the Dharma and do many practices such as meditation, that requires such tranquil environment.

    For what have been said in the ‘King of Prayers’, may it all come true quickly.

  45. Su Ming on Oct 14, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Dera all,

    As the forest gets cleared by the machineries, we are able to see more the potential of the KFR land. We have discovered so many strategic location for the Ladrang & also Kechara Village. It was very interesting. Since Rinpoche moved to KFR 3 days ago, we have been receiving so many auspicious signs.

    All of us need to put all our effort together to ensure Rinpoche moves to KFR as soon as possible. With this offering, many of our dharma aspirations and wishes will be fulfilled. After all, it is written in the tantra that the highest offering anyone can make to one’s lama is the highest of all.

  46. jeanai on Oct 14, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    LOL @Seng Piow. I’m glad to see he’s so happy on the land…it can only be because he knows Rinpoche’s finally got what Rinpoche has always wanted, which is a home in the mountains!

  47. Irene Lim on Oct 14, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    Our dream is manifesting after the Search ends!

  48. Jnaseh on Oct 14, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Please advise…how to get involved with supporting the statue of Pabongka Rinpoche? Thanks!

  49. KYC on Oct 13, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    I’m so happy to learn that Kechara Village will be built on KFR land and Rinpoche will be staying there to supervise the building of KFR. Rinpoche always has his students’ best interests at heart and wants them to go there to relax and recharge. From the pictures, it can be seen that Rinpoche’s students are very happy and feeling quite at home among the trees. May all of Rinpoche’s wishes come true.

  50. Han on Oct 13, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Great news!
    I Love the concept of building Kechara Village within the Kechara Forest Retreat.
    KFR,KV definitely will be a place that benefits many people, where our practice , teachings and lineage to be spread far and wide.

  51. AdelineTan on Oct 13, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Pictures paint a thousand words as you can see from the pictures here the people that went with Rinpoche to KFR were so excited and happy. The greatest news of all is Rinpoche is going to stay here instead of going to USA. Rinpoche has to be around to oversee and approve of plans to build Kechara Village.Just can’t wait to go KV for a long retreat there.

  52. Datuk May on Oct 13, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Nice that nature brought out the extrovert Seng Piow. Lovely photos of Kecharians being in tune with nature and loving it.

    Kechara Village in the greens, wonderful idea. Thank you Rinpoche.

  53. Low ksjc on Oct 13, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for staying back to see to the development of the Kechara Village.We certainly know you show great compassion for our well being and we hope this project will materialize in the shortest possible time .But still, after the Kechara village is completed ,we hope there will be more reason for our dear Rinpoche to stay on in Malaysia.

  54. hecelus tan on Oct 13, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    I must go and pay visit once it is built.

  55. Sharon Saw on Oct 13, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this news and the wonderful pictures. Everyone who has visited KFR has always come back with an extra big smile and i think that is the beauty of KFR… that we will find some little peace and happiness there. Kechara Village will be the precursor to the actual Kechara Forest Retreat. Rinpoche’s blessings at KFR land and the hard work of ladrang staff, volunteers and the sponsors will herald amazing things to come.. i can’t wait.

    In the meantime, the comms team is working on collaterals to promote awareness and fundraising programmes for KFR which will be ready very soon.

    Thank you for Rinpoche’s blessings for KFR and KV,
    sharon

    Thank you Rinpoche, truly happy that Rinpoche managed to find a piece of land within KFR. The Village (Kechara Village) will turn into town (KFR) and ultimately into a city (KWPC). With Rinpoche’s and Kecharians hard work and prayers, the Dharma will flourish even more in this region and one day a Kechara will be able to spread Dharma and benefit many more people around the globe.

    It is amazing ,but all made manifest because of Rinpoche’s infinite compassion and skillful means. I am absolutely thrilled that Rinpoche has located the site for Kechara Village. So a nucleus, Kechara Village(within Kechara Forest Retreat), has been conceived, by Rinpoche, to jump-start all efforts to ultimately realize Kechara World Peace Center. The news that brings me happiness beyond words is that Rinpoche will now stay to oversee the construction of Kechara Village. May we be always mindful that the efforts of each and everyone of us Kecharians matter to ensure the smooth and successful fruition of Rinpoche’s vision of peace, beginning with Kechara village.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, from the bottom of my heart.

  64. KH Ng on Oct 13, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Rinpoche, I am really happy beyond words that Rinpoche find it compelling to remain in Malaysia. Rinpoche have so skillfully taught, motivate and coerce us Kecharians, who are so immersed in our own delusional issues to be able to gather our strength individually and as a team to do Dharma for others and to accumulate merits and wisdom for none other than our own benefit ultimately. All of Rinpoche’s work are for us and the future.
    May all of Rinpoche’s wishes comes true and may the Dharma flourish in the region.

    With folded hands!

    After the parts of the land had been cleared, we can see the beauty of it. With Rinpoche’s vision and hard work of every members and friends, Kechara Village will be ready soon to benefit countless beings who seek solace, relaxation, do retreats, listen to dharma teachings.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for bringing the energy to this land by staying here on Kechara Village.

    This is really a great news! Kechara Village in KFR. Today my friend asked me a question, ‘where can I go in Malaysia for vacation? Not too expensive but yet able to relax. ‘ Immediately, I thought about KFR. With KFR, many people will have a place to relax. A total peaceful moment to be with ourself away from the noisy of the city.
    We are fortunate to have Tsem Rinpoche to guide us in building up place like KFR.

    • tsemtulku on Oct 13, 2012 at 6:21 am

      Dear Freon, I certainly wish to build KFR but I need your help and the help of everyone. Must contribute your efforts towards this holy and beneficial project.

      Tsem Rinpoche

      On this land I wish to place a large 8 ft stone statue of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. This would bless so many beings and create lots of merits as He is Heruka.

    Rinpoche’s presence at Kechara Village will definately bring great energy to this area and I am glad that Rinpoche will be able to be close to mountains with this project – something that Rinpoche has wanted very much.

    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.

    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 .

    Thank you, Pastor Shin, for this inspiring article. It is inspiring to read the biography of George Roerich a man of the highest spiritual harmony in 20th century Tibetologist. 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
