The Kechara Forest Retreat was conceptualised by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as the heart of the Kechara organisation. It will be a place away from the hustle and bustle of the city; where anyone can take a break from our hectic lives and rest, relax and recharge at this beautiful holistic centre.

In the very near future, this will be the place for anyone who wishes to seek spiritual solace and for those who wish to have some time out of their daily city life. The creation of this forest retreat is an instrumental step for getting closer to our ultimate goal, Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC).

This retreat land is conceptualised in a way to embrace nature, hence the name Kechara Forest Retreat. The moment you step into KFR, you will be greeted by beautiful fauna and flora. Nestled in the middle of the land will be a Prayer Hall where everyone can go to make their wishes and prayers, or simply meditate in tranquil surroundings.

At the Kechara Forest Retreat, we will have a spiritual experience that will leave our mind and body rejuvenated; allowing us to take on whatever comes next in our hectic lives. It is a place where families and individuals will find peace, nourishment and inspiration within a natural forest environment.

Here, we will give back to society through educational programmes for the young and the old, by instilling universal values such as patience, acceptance, kindness and compassion. It is a unique opportunity to experience a sustainable spiritual lifestyle within a conscious community.

The 9ft Manjushri stone statue on Manjushri Hill

 

IN YOU MANJUSHRI ~ a poem by Tsem Rinpoche

How much I have explored I find no repose,
Pleasant always turns unpleasant revealing
unfailingly the true nature of samsara,
All attractions look infallible, but all…
that is infallible appears fallible,
Where do I seek a place where my senses
can rest, trust and rely?
Nowhere have I searched in the wide spacious
universe can reliability be found.
Only in You, Your dharma and Your results
My Lord Manjushri can I trust.
For You are,
the lord of all illusions, phenomena, and
penetrative insight fulfilling my thirsty
need for substantial reliability.
Grant me the clairvoyance, insight and laser like
sight to penetrate concepts and see them for what they
are not.
Grant me Oh Gentle Lord of unsurpassed light and Manifestations
I may reach Your penetrated state of bliss and illumination.
This life if the goal shall not be won, I implore You
to safeguard me this seeker of Your omniscience
to reach in a life to come, guarded by Your infinite
compassion and watchful eye.
I rest my faith, will, trust, and mind in Your
illumination and awakening My Lord of who appears as
a gentle youth and innumerable manifestations.
Manjushri, for me You are the perfect Buddha,
please appear to me auspiciously day and night
life cycle after cycle. I find in You, the sublime
and final goal.

The 9ft Lama Tsongkhapa stone statue in front of Wisdom Hall

This is the holy Tsongkapa with many light offerings at Kechara Forest Retreat. Everyone should make or arrange for light offerings on a regular basis. It blesses you and your mind’s wisdom. It assists in your spiritual development. It’s an important practice.

Tsem Rinpoche 

 

LAMA TSONGKHAPA

The birth of Tibet’s immortal yogi and saint Lama Tsongkhapa had been prophesised by Buddha Shakyamuni.

The Buddhas of Wisdom, Compassion and Skilful Means (Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani) incarnated in this divine child.

By his genius, his example of perfect balance of study and practice, his utter humility and boundless energy, he restored the holy Buddhadharma to its original purity and caused it to spread like a wildfire all over Tibet, Mongolia, China and India.

Already practising the most profound tantric methods as a five-year-old, having been given his ordination vows by H.H. the 4th Karmapa, Je Tsongkhapa went on to study at the feet of no less than forty-five Gurus of all existing traditions.

After an eight-year retreat, eating only one seed of a tree per day and offering 3.5 million prostrations and 1.5 million mandalas, many deities appeard to him directly and he remained in constant communion with Lord Manjushri for the rest of his life.

Vajrayogini advised him to use the colour yellow for his teaching hat and the lineage that originated with him, the Gelugpa school, has often been called ‘Yellow-Hat School’ for that reason.

Lord Tsongkhapa founded the three main monasteries of Gaden, Drepung and Sera whose many attained Masters uphold his enlightened tradition and share it with the world. He is the author of many texts unsurpassed to this day in depth and clarity, most famously his work “The Stages on the Path to Enlightenment”.

Hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time, Lama Tsongkhapa comes from the mystical land of snows, Tibet. He is an incomparable pure monk, scholar and great teacher to thousands then and millions now.

This simple monk has become a limitless treasure trove of love, wisdom and compassion. He is an ideal spiritual inspiration for everyone throughout the ages.

Some look upon him for simple career advancement and some for a guide on a spiritual path. It simply doesn’t matter, as Lama Tsongkhapa grants wealth, business and career to the practical minded. He thus allows us to look deeper into spirituality with minds freer off mundane matters.

Having Lama Tsongkhapa’s image has the immense benefit of harmonizing the energy wherever his image is placed. A direct result of having him in your home would be stabilizing wealth and happiness. Essentials of food, money, shelter and clothing will cease to be a problem.

Lama Tsongkhapa’s image is well known to have a calming effect on aggressive minds and those with destructive emotions. Making offerings to him and doing his meditations and practice allow us to cultivate the inner qualities of wisdom, compassion and inner strength.

This practice’s other benefits are destroying all problems and obstacles. This is displayed with the flaming sword of wisdom on a lotus on his right. The Book of Dharma on the left lotus indicates by taking refuge in him, one can attain the higher wisdom of achieving true inner peace, tranquility and ultimately, Enlightenment.

Je Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga meditation (Gaden Lhagyama) is open to all, easy and pleasant to do, yet infinitely profound. Healing of depression, restlessness and sickness, protection from negative energies, enhancement of intelligence and clarity, deep joy and peace are experienced by those who practice it.

His spiritual energy in the form of sound that helps to transform the mind (Mantra), called Migtsema:

View from Manjushri Hill

Office in the Forest

Manjushri is the Buddha of Wisdom and therefore, he is also the patron of writers, artists, intellectuals and such. So, it was apt that His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche named the hill Manjushri as a special blessing on those who work here as the work is meant to reach out to millions and to have Manjushri bless the work so it would be beneficial to these people. This is where the writers and the IT people spend most of their time in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT.

When the building was being built, Rinpoche made sure that the glass windows are large enough so that the people working in the office can enjoy the spectacular view of rolling mountains and green forest, to relax and rejuvenate while working hard.

I was standing at the exact spot where this picture was taken exactly 1 year ago in October 2012 (inset). That was the very first time I went up to that hilltop where the panoramic view of the 1st phase of KECHARA FOREST RETREAT development can be seen.

With the hard work and dedication of students and friends of KECHARA, exactly 1 year later, we have almost completed the 1st phase of the development, and have transformed the raw jungle into a place with holy statues, temple, residences, admin area, aviary etc. We are getting one step closer to our dream of creating a holy place where families and individuals will find peace, nourishment and inspiration within a natural forest environment called KECHARA FOREST RETREAT.

The 9ft Manjushri stone statue on Manjushri Hill

 

I love Manjushri. I have always loved Manjushri and the much needed benefits He bestows upon practitioners. His practice can bring so much benefit to the person by increasing their memory, learning, composition, absorbing the Dharma, teaching, poetry, and much more. There are many forms of Manjushri which are depicted in different colors, two arms, four arms, peaceful and wrathful forms. Each form has a special function.

A very good friend of mine has recently offered me a beautiful 9 feet four-arm Manjushri statue carved of stone. This form of Manjushri is very rare and he made special arrangements for it to be carved. This four-arm Manjushri holds in his right hand a fiery sword, representing that he cuts asunder all causes of suffering. His left hand he holds a pure lotus flower by the stem in a teaching mudra. A scripture text sits atop the blooming lotus represents Manjushri’s stainless wisdom and his loving vow to teach us. His other two hands hold a bow and arrow representing wisdom and skilful means in union to bring benefit to people.

Director Paul Yap has arranged for this Manjushri statue to be enthroned on a special made platform on Manjushri Hill overlooking the valley to bless the people and surroundings in Kechara Forest Retreat. The Green Team led by Li Kheng did a very good job making the surrounding area of the platform beautiful with bamboo and white pebbles to give it a Zen look.

As soon as the statue was placed on top of the platform, a group of students who were working out from Manjushri Hill prepared offerings for a special puja to enthrone Manjushri and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the background to the right of Manjushri. I was told that the rainbow was visible throughout the duration of the puja together with a constant drizzle. Both the drizzle and rainbow stopped when they completed the puja. Very auspicious omen.

It is a very auspicious omen as the light rain and rainbow appeared throughout the puja as we believe that the land deities and spirits residing in the area are very pleased also. With the installation of Manjushri, I wish to bless all those who come in touch with Kechara Forest Retreat with the blessings of wisdom and the Dharma so that they will be able to attain peace and happiness.

I would like to share the picture of this holy Manjushri with everyone so that you may all be blessed.

Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

The iconic mango tree next to the Dining Room of Dukkar Apts

 

This is the iconic mango tree next to The Dining Room in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT (KFR). This tree is very special because last year while we were looking around for lands to build KFR, a miracle related to this tree appeared to show us that this would be the right place to build KFR, so we acquired this piece of land. This is a very auspicious tree. A Buddha Shakyamuni stone statue is placed under this tree to mark its significance.

The 9ft stone statue of Lama Tsongkhapa in front of Wisdom Hall at KECHARA FOREST RETREAT, in the background is the 12ft copper statue of Buddha Shakyamuni in the main prayer hall.

 


 

Wisdom Hall, the main prayer hall of Kechara Forest Retreat where the 12ft Buddha Shakyamuni statue sits on the main altar

 

At Kechara, Dharma’s sacred spaces are evolving in modernity. Our locations are moving from the busy city to the peaceful forest. Our architecture, which has already been considered modern compared to the traditional Tibetan busy, elaborate, colourful interiors have also evolved to cleaner, brighter, more minimalist designs.

Wisdom Hall is an example of a modern building within a forest enclave, which is practical, simple yet exuding serene spirituality. Surrounded by the Enchanted Forest, the Dukkar Apartments and Manjushri Hill, Wisdom Hall serves as a venue for traditional pujas and for Tsem Rinpoche to give teachings. It will cater for the growing number of students while the larger 3000 capacity multifunction hall in the front of KFR is being built. The capacity of Wisdom Hall is twice that of the current city gompa at Kechara House, Sunwaymas.

The main focus of the altar at the end of the Hall will be a 12ft Shakyamuni copper statue. Shakyamuni Buddha’s image is universal and everyone can relate to him. This beautiful handcrafted statue was commissioned under the artistic and watchful eyes of Liaison Paul Yap, who has been in charge of commissioning all the large Buddha statues at Kechara and now Kechara Forest Retreat.

Director Dato’ Ruby Khong was placed in charge of overseeing the construction of Wisdom Hall approximately two months ago. The hall was designed to be simple and uncluttered, with a zen-like concept. It is fully glazed with floor to ceiling glass panels on the sides and the front, bringing light and the surroundings right into the building.

Facilities in the Hall include a large pantry with sufficient space to make tormas for pujas, an audience room for H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, a Dharma shop and a reception area. The building has also been designed with access for people with disabilities in mind. There are two handicapped toilets, as well as ramps for wheelchair access to the main hall.

In the front of the hall, there is a feature wall, which cleverly camouflages a shoe rack behind it. There is a roundabout in front, and within the roundabout, there are a large Lama Tsongkhapa stone statue, a large incense burner and a space for making up to 600 candle offerings.

Dukkar Apts, the staying place for staff and guests

 

The interior of Dukkar Apts, with containers accomodation for full-time staff, members and friends

 

The 9ft Dukkar statue in Dukkar Apts

 

(Thoughts by Martin Chow)

In Tsem Rinpoche’s Kechara you learn not to be proud and yet it would be remiss of me not to point out how tremendously powerful it is when you believe your Guru and your motivation is for the advancement of the Dharma.

In just over a year ago, Kecharians started working on the land and they stayed in simple tents and slept on the ground. No one cared or minded at all. They were there on a mission, not a holiday. After a little while, something “bette” was erected which was merely a bigger tent city under a timber structure. Again no one minded.

And now, look at what has happened on the very site that the old tent city stood a year ago…Dukkar Apartments which is really a resort-like community living. It is beautiful, it is comfortable and complete with all the mod cons…and yet, no one minds. The same people who work on the land would readily return to the simple tents if that is what is required for the Dharma to grow. The mission is far from over but already the undisputed truth is great things happen to ordinary people when they do it for Dharma. BELIEVE!

The POINT is, although Dukkar Apartments have come about beautifully, it is merely a manifestation of minds that have transformed under the tutelage of a holy and compassionate Guru. You should see the “Dukkar” inside the minds of the people who build KECHARA FOREST RETREAT…its unimaginably beautiful.

 

Click here to watch the video showing the amazingly beautiful yet practical interior of Dukkar Apartments:

 


 

This is the Aviary in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT, this is where we keep various species of birds that we rescued from pet shops, previous owners etc. They were not treated well before, they were abused, some were kept in very tiny cages, some plucked their feathers because they were neglected, some were weak due to old age, some were sick, crippled, blind…

We rescued these birds and housed them in this huge aviary (they will not survive if released into the wild), now they have the freedom to spread their wings fully, fly around, make friends, recuperate…and everyday our people give the birds plenty of food and clean water, and they clean the aviary well. The birds are almost in their natural environment with trees, greeneries, sound of water flowing in the nearby stream, sound of breeze, ruffling leaves, and we also play mantra chanting from a CD to plant the seed of Dharma in their mind.

The birds are extremely happy now in this aviary.

May all animals be free from sufferings of any sort or kind.

Tsem Rinpoche

  8. Vinnie Tan on Nov 6, 2013 at 1:24 am

    KFR is definitely a very beautiful place, I am very happy that I am so fortunate to be having the opportunity to stay and work in KFR. It is an awesome place where magic takes place. Although this sounds like some kind of advertisement, but I think this is really the case as everything is just happening so quickly and transforming so beautifully, just lie magic!

    I am so happy that Rinpoche has concepted this place for all the people in this region to be lucky enough to have such a nice place to come and do our prayers at.

  9. thierry on Nov 5, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    KFR is a wonderful place, yes indeed it is beautiful, it is green, it is a place of peace, for peace, yes it is a high spiritual ground, but also, it is the demonstration that with determination, confidence and faith the impossible can become reality. In the short period of only one year, such large and complex buildings have been completed 100%, a genuine achievement! One that, from my professional experience, was un-achievable! The un-achievable has been achieved, and with great success, beautiful design, great quality, a true achievement!

  10. HelenaC on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Wow wow wow…KFR is amazingly beautiful. A place that is beneficial to many! Thank you Rinpoche for your guidance. I am sure KFR will be a famous centre that many pilgrims are looking forward to visit.

  11. Adrian Cho on Nov 3, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Wow… This is Amazing and wonderful, that nowadays at Kechara Forest Retreat already complete done build so many buildings. It is looks so beautiful and feel comfortable. We must should go visit KFR, once everythings done complete. It is such a very peaceful place and can calming down our mind. 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all this nice pictures to us.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 31, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    KFR is a dream that can potentially benefit tremendous amount of beings and a place where people can come to rest physically and be one with nature.

  13. AdelineTan on Oct 30, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat for people who wish to seek spiritual solace, meditation and relaxation or even just one day outing in this beautiful peaceful KFR that can help to calm our minds because of its tranquility and serenity. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these lovely pictures.

    感谢上师的慈悲,特为我们建设佛殿,让大家参与建设工作,因为这样可以让我们从中得到无限量的公德,更能快速的消除障碍,以便恶业成熟时,我们可以有足够的公德勇于面对它。克切拉弹修林的建成,不但可以提供我们一个灵修佛法的场所,让我们更精进的学习佛法,也能加持四周环境的六道终身。感谢上师的用心及慈悲,营造一个山明水秀的环境,让我们在灵修上更精进!

  17. David Lai on Oct 23, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    The photography is superb and the spectacle of Rinpoche’s vision unfolding before our very eyes in just a year is incredible. In the past, they say that dakinis descended into our realm to help the great attained Lamas to build the monasteries. Today, we only have dedicated students, sponsors and whole bunch of ‘interesting’ contractors to work with. It may be a year but it took a lot of monitoring, corrections and amendments to previous plans to get the buildings and facilities up to par with our needs and expectations. Jp Thong and his team of Moh Mei (A pastor and soon to be sangha), Khoo Hau Haw and Nicholas Yu did a fantastic job creating this spectacle along with Dato Ruby who did wonders with Manjushri Hill. This is not to mention Henry Ooi with his little assistant Pammie Yap. Amazing dedication and devotion.

    Within the span of 1 year ago in Oct.2012, Kechara today, in own its capacity have almost completed the 1st phase of KFR development, transforming the raw jungle into a place filled with holy statues, temple, residences, admin area, aviary etc. Whether as an individual, group, or with families, one will be able to relax and find peace, solace and spiritual inspiration within the natural forest surrounding of KFR as a result of the loving care, hardwork and concern of KFR group and followers!

    The pictures turned out beautiful! I love the colours and scenery of every photo that was taken, together with the descriptions typed out by Rinpoche and the admins, it totally helps me visualise the tranquility of Kechara Forest Retreat offers. I have had the blessed opportunity to visit KFR and have also stayed there for a couple of nights, the air is fresh and the feeling you get is calm and peaceful. Rinpoche and kecharians should be very proud of what they have built and shouldn’t stop there and continue to push on to finish KWPC. Thank you Rinpoche and kecharians for building this magnificent place, may it benefit many sentient beings. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  22. May Ong on Oct 18, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    KFR is a wonderful place to get away from the city to relax our mind and find solace in fresh air, forest environment, quietness and peace.

  23. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Oct 17, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and compassion to spearhead the Kechara Forest Retreat development along with many Kecharians who have put tremendous hard work to make things happened. I truly feel we Malaysians are very fortunate to have beautiful and well organized structure within the Kechara Forest Retreat that provides all the good facilities for local people and visitors who want to do more retreats and practice more Dharma in a peace, quiet and fresh environment. It is indeed a Heaven on earth.

  24. Carmen K on Oct 17, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    This is the result, the results of determination, struggle, integrity, commitment, devotion and kindness. Looking at the beautiful pictures, it is indeed a true testament to going all the way with your lama.

    Around this time last year, from a small little cabin in our then temporary cabin area, Tsem Rinpoche moved into the cabin to oversee the construction works that was going on. That was the very beginning, the spark that set the unending flame into a blaze to light the path for all into seeking peace and happiness from within. It was from this very cabin, (located at where Dukkar Apartments is now), where Rinpoche sat, meditated, aspired, did offerings and prayed endlessly for the manifestation and realisation of Kechara Forest Retreat. And from this one small cabin where the Lama took his seat, KFR has grown and blossomed into what it has become today.

    Many didn’t see what Rinpoche had to endure – sinking into the mud, being swamped by insects, flies and mosquitos, having braved the monsoon, constant flooding and leaks, cold showers, laying bricks with bare hands, the packing, unpacking, repacking and unpacking, the tearing down of our tents because of the strong winds, the constant fear of landslides, the many many uprooted trees, and so forth. Through it all, our lama was at the forefront to lead us. He stood strong, determined and most of all, happy, because it is a legacy that our lama is creating for all of us. It is his gift to us. A sanctuary for the minds of today’s people to seek transformation and find their own path to alleviate their own sufferings. If there is anything that Rinpoche would want, it is just for us to be happy and to end our own sufferings. And with that lies the foundation to Kechara Forest Retreat.

    “I pray that my life in the Dharma, teaching, the monastery, the poverty that I have suffered sleeping on the streets the energy that I have spent and everything I have given, be dedicated to all of you” ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    With much love and gratitude for the best gift in life that Rinpoche has given us,
    Carmen

    从一片丛林到今天,今时,今日。出现在眼前的新颖,时尚,可想而知我们的上师使用了多少的关怀和爱心才能有今天的成绩。我们的禅修林没像传统的寺庙,那是上师希望对佛法,寺庙有抗拒的人前来时对佛法和庙宇改观,也希望世代感的寺院带给大家舒服,像在自己家的感觉。无论如何上师的用心不容忽视。

    Whenever I shared with friends about Kechara Forest Retreat, they were always amazed with the design of the architecture and the speed of all these buildings were built. Many of them wanted to come and see and interested to join our weekend program to meditate, to do retreat, for healing, to enjoy and connect back to the mother nature, to get your hands dirty with soil, wake up in the morning hearing birds and monkeys calling, laying on the field watching the cloud floating in the wide blue sky, getting wet in the rain… oh I will go on and on about it.. Thank you to the lovely KFR Team who worked extremely hard to get everything up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating KFR for all of us..

  30. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 15, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    KFR is indeed a very good place for us city “urbanese” retreat to, with all the lush green surrounding yet never lost the taste of edgy modern architecture.

    Thank you Rinpoche for making The Kechara Forest Retreat from conceptual into a reality.

    A truly beautiful place for any first timer to find solace and a chance to be acquainted with the practice of Dharma.

    A cause to spread Dharma in a manyfold way through our guru effective means.
    A team of dedicated Kecharians who show selfness and will not slow down at any cause including at the expense of their health to make sure the job is completed in order to benefit others.
    A true Guru’s ,compassion and generosity to share the precious Dharma for us to attain the ultimate Jewel.Which is our own mind transformation through unconditional dharma practice through effective means…..

    I was brought up in the city all my life, and every since I lived in KFR, I cant tell you how I look forward to go back to KFR whenever I come back to KL to run some errands. The environment which was conceptualized by Rinpoche is truly a place that is conducive for us to practice spirituality. I’m really grateful that we have such a wonderful place, thanks to Rinpoche, all the people that worked hard in KFR and also the sponsors of this spiritually empowering place.

    I’m very surprised by how much KFR has changed! It turned into a very beautiful and peaceful place where people can go up there and do retreats, spend some time over there. I can’t wait to go up tomorrow, we’ll be volunteering in the Dukkar Apartments, it’s really nice to spend some time over there and do something meaningful instead of just sitting in front of the computer and play games. Thank You for sharing the beautiful pictures and video Rinpoche.

  42. tenzinkhenchen on Oct 11, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is truly the embodiment of Kechara heaven on Earth. The pictures are absolutely stunning. When I stayed at KFR for a short while during my school holidays, I have to say, the experience is unmatchable by anything that you would experience in the future.

  43. Ck siah on Oct 11, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    感恩仁波切的克切拉禅修林宏愿已经如火如荼的进行中,让大家眼前一亮的克切拉禅修林是跟以往一般传统的寺院不一样,它是那么新颖,摩登,时代感又具有环保概念。
    克切拉禅修林让人感觉很舒适,平静,空气清新,有四外桃源的感觉。然而这只是初步的工程阶段。我相信未来的克切拉禅修林将是东南亚首屈一指和名闻遐迩的佛教禅修林中心。
    最后也要感恩克切拉上上下下的众信徒,大家出钱出力,同心协力,才会有今天的克切拉禅修林。

  44. Julien Roth on Oct 11, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Many high lamas have written prayers to Dorje Shugden. One of them is the 5th Dalai Lama. He realised that Dorje Shugden is, in fact, an emanation of Manjushri manifests in the form of a Dharma protector. Therefore, he wrote this prayer to praise his enlightened qualities. We can this prayer daily and conclude with Dorje Shugden’s mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA.

    Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple in Bagan, Myanmar is so beautiful and majestic. It is located on the southwestern side of Mount Popa, a volcano situated along the Pegu Range in Central Myanmar. The temple rests on a volcanic plug at 657 metres above sea level. The view from the temple is simply stunning, it is very green and vast. The best time to visit is in October.

    The Trailblazing Green School in Bali is amazing, I really like its concept. It does not focus just the academic results but it also emphasises on living in harmony with our environment. The school teaches the students our impact on the environment, and our connectivity with each other and the earth.

    The Green school is very environmentally friendly, the buildings are not built from concrete but bamboos. They are not hooked up to the main power supply but they rely on solar power. The main focus of their education syllabus is sustainability through community integration and entrepreneurial learning.

    Spirits in the ghost realm are living in suffering and pain. They are always in hunger, their throat is so small that the food can’t go through. When they want to eat, all the food will be burnt. Hence reciting mantra and dedicate to them is very important to plant the dharma seed in them. Hopefully, they will have swift rebirth and alleviate their suffering.

    So many people had experienced with black magic and spirits all over the world and Rinpoche had kindly shared the ways we can overcome this problem before it takes hold of our lives with harm and danger. Sometimes even death is inevitable. So do read for knowledge if not for yourself then for others that you may meet. Do share your experiences as we wish to learn too.

    Sanskrit name for this deity is “Dharmaraja” – the King of the Dharma. In this wrathful and protective aspect, Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom, appears to conquer hindrances and to remove inner or outer obstacles. Karupa arose as the main Dharma Protector of the Yamantaka Tantras along with Six-Armed Mahakala, Vaishravana and Dorje Shugden in this beautiful art paintings. As one of the three protectors of the Lamrim tradition.
    Reading this post I have increase a little knowledge.

    The Green School is a non-profit, private and international school that provides learning from pre-kindergarten level right up to high school. The Green School is situated along the Ayung River near Ubud, Bali in Indonesia. It has no walls and is nestled amongst rainforests with rice paddy fields nearby. The building is built solely from bamboo, and is powered by the sun. The Green School has made its mission to educate students and the community on sustainable living using an education syllabus that focuses on sustainability through community integration and entrepreneurial learning.

    John and Cynthia Hardy founded the Green School in 2006 based on Alan Wagstaff’s Three Springs concept for an educational village community. The school opened in September 2008 and can be accessed via a 22-metre (72.1 ft) bamboo bridge across the Ayung River. Initially built to cater to 90 students, it has since grown to accommodate 415 students from 30 countries. 50 bamboo buildings provide classrooms and boarding houses for the students.

    The foremost priorities of the Green School are sustainability, education, conservation, community support, and nurturing its children’s individual talents. Traditional topics are combined with experiential classes, such as cooking, gardening, and even traditional Balinese mud wrestling. The children learn biology by working in the school garden and looking after the school buffalo. They study geographical topics on the river banks that flow through the school. They also learn in a classroom setting with books and paper.

    The Tibetan diaspora began in 1959 after the People’s Liberation Army entered the country and the Dalai Lama fled into exile. Upon entering India, the Dalai Lama and his exiled leadership were granted 24 tracts of land scattered throughout the country on which the Tibetans would be able to reestablish themselves. These tracts of land were freely and kindly given to the Dalai Lama and his people by the Indian government led by Jawaharlal Nehru. They were granted with the assumption that the Tibetans would be in India as refugees for a very long time and would therefore need space of their own. Indeed, Nehru’s foresight was such that he even extended a citizenship policy to the Tibetans – if within 99 years they were unable to accomplish their political goals and return to their homeland, Tibetans would be forced to take up Indian citizenship and assimilate with the rest of the Indian population.

    Time has shown that thus far, Nehru was almost prophetic in the arrangements he made for the Tibetan people. In the last 60 years, the Tibetan leadership have not been successful in making progress with their political goals. While China continues to rise in power and influence on a global level, the Tibetan leadership and their people continue to be racked by infighting, political scandal, manipulations, divisions and accusations of embezzlement, financial mismanagement, corruption and murder.

    We can therefore see that living in exile has been very challenging for the Dalai Lama and his community. Having experienced a similar pain and hardship, the world was therefore taken aback by the apparent callousness of His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he recently issued the statement

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.

This Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen statue is so stunning. It was a good idea to have a real brocade pandit\'s hat and brocade robes sewn for this image. It makes the image come to life. How nice to have such a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen statue on our shrine with offerings and we recite the prayer to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen daily to invoke his sacred blessings. This statue is on Martin\'s shrine. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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

    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
