Support the Kechara Pastors

[Prepared by the Kechara Pastors]

A Brief History

The pastorship role was conceptualised by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. The first Buddhist Pastors were ordained on 24th October 2011 and every year since then, more have made this commitment to bring the Buddha’s teachings to people in our modern era.

Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. In addition to holding their Refuge and Pastors vows, serving others with sincerity and without a selfish motivation, they also undergo various levels of training in their spiritual advancement before they become one of Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors. The selection and training is a rigorous process, and the appointment of the Pastors must be approved by Kechara’s Board of Directors and blessed by His Eminence.

 

After Ordination

There are two types of Pastors within Kechara:

  1. Lay Pastors: people who are committed to their spiritual practice but have pre-existing obligations to family and other commitments.
  2. Sangha-to-be: people that are aspiring to become fully ordained members of the Sangha (monastic community) in the near future.

Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastors’ vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge. Pastors are ordinary people who have taken an extraordinary step in dedicating their lives towards sharing the Dharma. They have made a commitment towards their spirituality and the spirituality of others.

Eight years have passed as the Pastors continue to serve the community, in a spiritual capacity, assisting His Eminence in his compassionate and visionary works. His Eminence envisioned Pastors to create waves of merit for limitless sentient beings through their body, speech and mind.

The Pastors have the privilege of touching many people’s lives, by serving the public; Kechara members, their friends and family; as well as people all over the world through social media and a dedicated Pastors’ corner on His Eminence’s blog (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/ask-the-pastors).

 

Selflessly Serving Others

Pastors dedicate their time fully to assist His Eminence by nurturing fellow practitioners along their spiritual path. Pastors share the Dharma with others, help them with their practice and inspire them with their good example. Pastors will also prepare fellow practitioners to receive higher teachings and initiations in the future.

Besides duties and works that support the operation of Kechara’s various departments including Kechara Forest Retreat, Pastors’ duties also include, but are not limited to:

  • Performing Buddhist prayers and rituals at Kechara Puja House or offsite.
  • Performing last rites and bereavement ritual services.
  • Performing blessing ceremonies.
  • Performing marriage registration.
  • Conducting public talks and other outreach programmes.
  • Conducting various educational programmes.
  • Providing counselling in person and online.
  • Providing Dharma support and guidance to the Kechara study groups in Peninsular Malaysia.

Pastors maintain good conduct and ethical behaviour, wear his/her Pastor’s uniform with integrity and a strong sense of selfless servitude to others. Pastors are ever ready to make house calls for bereavement prayers and are here to educate the public on various aspects of Buddhist practice.

Pastors share the Dharma with others through formal classes and counselling services. Pastors also engage in public talks and other outreach programmes, sharing their knowledge with others. In this video Pastor Adeline presents an introductory talk with a Q&A session in Chinese.

Pastors are empowered by His Eminence to perform last rites and bereavement prayers for the deceased. The prayers help the deceased to have a swift and fortunate rebirth.

Pastors give regular talks on spiritual practice and how to incorporate these practices into daily life. This is Pastor David, who is also a Kechara writer with four titles published so far.

After a couple’s marriage is registered, pastors are empowered to perform wedding blessings. Pastor Chia is seen here performing a wedding blessings for a couple who want an auspicious start to their new lives together.

By keeping their vows strongly and performing many powerful prayers Pastors are able to bestow blessings for all. In this photography Pastor Han Nee is seen with a young boy, who had come seeking the Pastors blessing.

Pastors are ever ready to share their knowledge. Pastor Lanse is seen here sharing what Buddhist practice actually is and how we can benefit from it.

Pastor Yek Yee blesses birds before releasing them as part of an animal liberation ceremony held in conjunction with Wesak Day.

Pastors are trained in traditional rituals, and regularly perform outcall services, for example house blessings and the consecration of altars.

Pastors are also called upon to perform site blessings, for an auspicious start to new projects.

At events, or upon special request, Pastors conduct baby blessings and baptisms to plant the seeds of Dharma in the child’s mindstream so that they may grow up connected to the Dharma and protected by the Three Jewels.

During this event, the Pastors baptised and blessed 40 children.

One of the Pastors’ most popular services is car blessings. The Pastors bless the car through prayer and ritual and after the ceremony, the car’s owner is given a Buddha image to be placed on their dashboard.

Pastor Yek Yee performing last rites and blessing a beloved pet to take a swift rebirth, to always be connected with the Dharma.

The Pastors are ever-ready and willing to share their knowledge.

Car blessings are always very popular. Here, Pastor Henry is seen blessing a car at Kechara Forest Retreat’s Dorje Shugden Open Day.

In the Pastors you will always find a ready smile and a willingness to assist.

Pastors will perform their duties anywhere there is a need. This was taken at the Tsem Rinpoche Foundation in Los Angeles, California (USA). The Pastors who were based here, are currently operating out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    I am not sure where is appropriate to post this.

    I am from Phoenix Arizona, USA. I am 68. Three year ago I visited Thailand and South East Asia where I first experienced Buddhism and the profound effects upon their culture. I have been developing a growing interest and study of Buddhism since that time.

    About a month ago or so I came across Tsem Rinpoche on YouTube. I immediately felt enamored by his knowledge, speaking ability and wit. He has such presence. He is the guru I have been looking for. I then found he has passed.

    I am interested in learning/studying the Dharma. I would travel to KL now but can’t because of the travel restrictions at this time. I believe Kechara may be the place I have been looking for.

    ” 讲法师 ” 普遍大多数在基督教才可听到这称号, 但是在佛教来说, 是一个未曾听到的。慈悲的尊贵的詹杜固仁波切乘願而来, 目的为了普渡众生, 把佛陀,宗喀巴大师教诲和多杰雄登法门传播到世界每一个角落,利益众生。

    尊贵的上师运用各种管道, 让人们参与他们喜好和专长的部门,实行佛法事业,净化业障,累积功德。克切拉佛教中心拥有13个部门,共修小组,位于文冬的克切拉禅修林, 超过3千万游览次数的博客, 面子书,推特,还有前所未有过的 “克切拉讲法师 ” 制度,务必让人们在不同的管道,接触佛法。

    克切拉讲法师在克切拉团体扮演着非常重要的角色, 在尊贵的上师的加持下, 他们把佛法加倍迅速传播出去, 进行殊胜的法会,帮助往生者无论是人或动物超度,资产加持法会,佛法教学课程等等,主要就是像仁波切的宏愿,让在娑婆世界的众生们净化业障,累积功德和让他们得到佛的印记,让众生们脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐。

    愿尊贵的上师健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意,所有宏愿一一的达成,所有众生尽快脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐!

    My association with Kechara Pastors started in Feb 2016. All this time I only know the word Pastor is confined only to Christianity but on a Buddhist platform it came as a surprise to me. My first contact with a Pastor was Pastor Adeline.
    My first impression of Pastor Adeline was her brightness; to me she appears demure, pleasant, and one could feel a peaceful aura when standing next to her. I cannot help wondering why such a young lady would sacrifice her youth to do this type of work; it did not hit me until much later on after viewing and visiting Rinpoche’s website, Facebook and You tube video that made me realized that these are the people commonly labeled as “the dying breed.” I can understand that many of these young people went to a religious institution because of being unable to handle life’s pressures, being a social outcast, family rejects and for very many multiple reasons or as a form of escapism. However, these Pastors as I know now is highly educated and with good family background they would be able to stand high among the best in society if they chose to lead a mundane life. An afterthought would be that they must have found some gems far much greater and valuable than all the jewels on planet earth.
    Pastor Adeline exudes pleasantness hard to describe an example would be like when I bite into a juicy apple you would not be able to understand its sweetness no matter how hard I try to explain it to you unless you choose to take a bite. Pastor Adeline has that type of qualities within her, my wife Christine always tells me that she likes to look at Pastor Adeline’s face because of her complexion in addition she could feel a deep sense of serenity whenever they meet.
    I would summarize Pastor Adeline as a personification and a live example of Rinpoche’s teachings and if I may add through these Kechara ambassadors, Kechara would have no problems in meeting and fulfilling its objectives and I sincerely hope to be a part of this journey with Kechara

    Kechara Pastors are very dedicated and they work tirelessly around the clock.
    Please give support to the Pastors for the Dharma work to grow and the teachings to flourish.

    It is very inspiring to learn about the story of Pastor Antoinette Kass. She first met His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in 2011. Over the next four years, there were less than 24 hours of personal meeting between Pastor Antoinette and Rinpoche. Yet on Wesak Day 2015, Pastor Antoinette took a bold step forward by shaving her head and joining the big family of Kechara by becoming a Pastor.

    Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastor’s vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for this blogpost.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    Dear Pastor Adeline,
    We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to your taking care of us during our recent KFR open day visit on Dec 12th. My sister in law was very much impressed by what H.E. Tsem Rinpoche heavenly effort in setting up Kechara Malaysia and in disseminating and allowing Malaysian at large to know this lineage of Buddhism.
    It was really very enlightening sharing my thoughts with you along the trip on several aspects of Buddhism, I must congratulate you and wholeheartedly admit your knowledge in Buddhism is pretty profound.
    As you are pretty aware I am currently reading Liberation in the palm of your hand and recently purchased a book on Tsongkhapa, a simple guide to a powerful practice apart from the earlier book I purchased on If not now when. I really do find these books very absorbing.
    My sister in law is pretty keen to become a life member and also Christine is also keen to become one too. They should be visiting the Sunday dharma talk at Kechara pretty soon to get to know more of H>E Tsem Rinpoche teachings.
    Thank you once again Pastor Adeline

      Dear Sonny,

      I apologies for this late reply and thank you kindly for your kind words which humbled me further to continue learning and practising dharma. I wish very much to see Christine and sister to be in the dharma class and looking forward to having you in our big family. Please continue to learn and keep Rinpoche’s teachings at heart.

      Thank you and please take care,
      Pastor Adeline

    To become a pastor is not easy. We should support in financial or others way. Pastor dharma teaching is very applicable in our daily life.Listen and understand is not enough for us to become a good person but we must practice it.Thanks Rinpoche and pastors hard work.

  8. Lucy Yap on Oct 7, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    Kechara Pastors serve the public tirelessly with their limitless number of duties and services. With Rinpoche’s guidance, Kechara Pastors effectively fill their roles with compassion, kindness and empathy. Under the leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, Kechara Pastors maintain a high standard of behavior to effectively guide others spiritually. Please give your support to these wonderful Pastors of Kechara for their work to grow and benefit all sentient beings. Thank you Rinpoche for Kechara Pastors!

  9. Yoke Chim Yap on May 16, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    多谢上师的付出与培訓,誏克切拉跟别人不一样。我们多了Pastor可以为众生服務和讲解佛法,誏更多人更方便,容易了解佛法与得益 。还有法会,可以帮到很多人,非常棒。畢竟时代不同了,以前的人会自动去听和帮忙,而现在却是须要深入人心去弘揚。上师就像大医师,而Pastor就是實习医师。感恩上师及各位 Pastor 的無私付出。

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 9, 2015 at 12:05 am

    The pastors name is synonymous with service. And the past few years have seen the pastors render all manner of services to the public and also grow in stature in terms of their skills and ability of benefitting others.

    Thank you very much to Kechara pastors for bringing Lama Tsongkhapa to others and far and wide.

  11. SG on Feb 5, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Yes, I agree that they deserve to get all the support they can, and they are worth it. Please support them from your heart. They practice Rinpoche’s teachings thoroughly by truly immersing themselves in dharma. I pray that the pastors and pastorship grow, grow and grow more. I admire you very much. Please carry on these wonderful jobs.

  12. Tek Lee on Jan 29, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, and thanks to all the Pastors! Pastors are really like my parents (some are brothers and sisters of course :)), coz they unconditionally love us, help us, nurture us, guide us, no matter where and when. I must say this here, I love u all the Pastors! 🙂 _/\_

  13. Pastor Yek Yee on Jan 13, 2015 at 12:12 am

    在克切拉团体裡有个特殊的制度,叫作讲法师制度!讲法师制度在2011年正式宣誓执行职责,刚开始的前两年,没有多少人了解这些穿着大紫红制服的人,也搞不清楚他们可以做到甚麽,对中心奉献甚麽?经过一段时间的努力和坚持,今天凡是大家提到克切拉讲法师,每个人都会给予几分尊重。

    身为克切拉讲法师其中一份子的我,很感激上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的恩泽,给予我这样的一个机缘,藉以服务大众为善,为自己累世所留下来的无数恶业洗涤,并且储存足够的功德有望今生可以修习更高阶的持修法。

    由于,仁波切多年来潜移默化的教导,让我把“我 ”开始慢慢地缩小,将“他人”逐渐地放大,刚开始很自豪地以为自己好了不起,很伟大似的;经历多了,听的看的多了之后,感受自然多了,不知那一天脑袋的某块乌云被吹了,才勐然悟到:“一切都是上师精心的安排,只为了要我在有能力的时候,为自己多做打算,资粮银行户口多存几亩功德田。。。”从仁波切高智慧善巧用心良苦的策划之下,凡有缘到来克切拉団体的每一位都是受惠者,不管是布施或接收的,两者皆受益无穷。因为,在这样一个施与受的过程中,大家都获得了上师和佛法的加持庇护,一举两得,何乐而不为呢?

    从这样的一个双赢的制度之下,至尊宗喀巴大师的法教因应时代的需求而持续下去。仁波切从南印度到在星马这一带弘法,耗掉了整整20年的时间,只为了将格鲁巴的传承延续一代又一代。仁波切深明,如今物质横流的社会,人人都被俗事所牵绊,要在这样的环境之下培育一名出家人,无条件 推广佛法是非常艰难的事;因此,善巧的大成就者詹仁波切来一项创新且反传统的的讲法师制度,让在家的居士们弘扬佛法,让在家居士承担延续整个宗喀巴大师传承的担子;时代改变了,慈悲上师的方法也在改变中。为什麽呢?只为了顺应时代的要求和需求罢了。

    所以,若果你明白这些慈悲上师的苦心和用心,请尽你所能,支持克切拉讲法师,让每位讲法师可以无后顾之忧地执心他们的任务和上师给予他们的使命!

  14. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to have Pastors system in Kechara. I would like to thank all Pastors for their 24/7 hard work, services and guidance.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit all sentient beings

  15. Uncle Eddie on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Dharma teaches us to bring to mindfulness and compassion on what we see and feel in heart and mind! Its time for us to broaden our circle of compassion to help lighten sufferings of beings by becoming more caring and loving, and find skilful way to unbind our sense, so that suffering can be transformed into an awakened heart that can do good to the world. Under the capable and dedicated leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, working on a 24/7 throughout the year, the Pastorship squad are compassionately seen doing what are most required. Like H.H. The Dalai Lama said, “I believe that every level of society, the key to a happier and more successful World is the growth of Compassion. All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities”. Kindly, please support Kechara Pastorship programme generously to help them to carry on their sacred duties for the benefit of all Beings spiritually. Om Mani Padme Hung.

    Pastors in Kechara serves many people from all walk of life within Malaysia and internationally. They do dharma work without any complain and spend hours and hours nurturing those who are not spiritually inclined yet and those who are not located near the dharma centre. They receive emergency phone call requests at any time of the day or night and will perform any prayers or attend to those in need at the drop of pen, on requests for help or assistance.

    They are ‘real’ samaritans on the go from Kechara. They do not ask for anything in return but instead they give more than others.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit you, others, friends and family.

  17. victoria lam on Jan 4, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    I am so grateful to get sharing and learning from Kechara’s Pastors. From the gratitude and respect, i also learn how to do dharma work and serves to community. If without Pastors, I wouldn’t get to know more Buddha Philosophy from their sharing.

    Thank you very much Tsem Rinpoche and all Pastors.

  18. Hee TS on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    如何無私的講法師,他們的反應非常迅速,並24小時待命,服務须要幫助的人。即使深夜進行任何形式的祈禱。衷心的感謝和尊重Rinpoche 培養出,不知疲倦地只为他人离苦,忘却自我,而付出的講法師们!

  19. William on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    Kechara Pastors work tirelessly to benefit people in our community and also the world. Their only intention is to help others in times of need whether spiritually, emotionally or even physically. They are available all the time when their services are needed.

  20. Stella on Dec 30, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    In my opinion, people who are ordained as Pastors are selfless and they put the interest and benefits of others before themselves. From my observation, Kechara Pastors work 24×7 through out the years. It is a thankless job most of the time.

    It is therefore a privilege for us to support the Pastors so that they can reach out to more people and help those who are truly in need. I hope more people will come to realize the hard work that Kechara Pastors put in and continue to support their work.

    Thank You Rinpoche for creating this role to benefit people like us in a land that has little mass consciousness of Buddhism.

  21. Dense Kuek on Dec 30, 2014 at 1:03 am

    This is all about the blessing from Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. As your kindness, we are able to get the assistance from pastors and all the pastors in charge for different departments to spread dharma by different way. This is so rejoice to have all the pastors here in Kechara and I believe by the effort all the pastors contribute would really help people who r in suffer or who seek for spiritual guide. Tsem Rinpoche, thanks for your kindness. For all the pastors, thanks for your selfless love, really thank you.

  22. Louise on Dec 29, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    We are the lucky people in the world. Thank you Rinpoche have a Pastor system in Kechara. At the beginning it is not easy.

    But we believe Rinpoche, it is will benefit people.

    Now everyday i can see Pastor with the puja team it is so busy to helping people all around. People benifited come to Kechara helping and volunteering.

    Pastor services it make so important .

    I want to thank you Rinpoche and all the Pastors .

  23. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    My respect and gratitude too for His Eminence for creating this very innovative system of pastor-ship to help us laypeople in this time and age. This form of institutionalisation can ensure the long term perpetuation and localisation of Dharma for generations. _/\_

  24. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    My sincere gratitude and respect for the pastors who are working tirelessly and compassionately for us. _/\_

  25. Edwin Tan on Dec 29, 2014 at 4:21 am

    Indeed with the Pastors, the gap between lay people and Dharma is bridged.

    I have personally witness many accounts of how selfless the Pastors are. They respond very quickly and are accessible 24 hours, even at late hours for any sort of prayers.

    The level of their commitment to Dharma, to Rinpoche and to the community is very strong.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for forming up the Pastors.

  26. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Dec 28, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    We are so grateful that Tsem Rinpoche have implemented Pastor system in Kechara , with empowerment by Rinpoche , Kechara Pastors can help us in term of variety activities Eg marriage registration , bereavement puja..etc.we should support their works let more people can receive Tsem Rinpoche ‘s blessing .

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Thank you for the unique interior design of Tao Restaurant in New York. I am very much fascinated to see the huge Buddha statue in this restaurant.

    The design idea is as such that able to bring versatile atmosphere to life. It also has a significant influence on customer experience because it includes planning the layout of the restaurant.

    Looking at the design itself very much suit to a Vegetarian Restaurant.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .

    It is quite a task to complete this as it requires a lot of effort and energy to input into the various collection of materials to complete the wealth vase and the wealth box.

    Very exciting news! H E kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back. This young incarnation pay a visit to Trode Khangsar Chapel and makes offerings of gold to Djorje Shugden. This 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel was built and dedicated to Dorje Shugden the Powerful Dharma Protector. Offering gold to sacred images is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. He held on strongly to his faith, devotion and respect for the Dorje Shugden. It is indeed inspiring to read and know that great masters are coming back. It brings so much hope and deepens faith that these Tulkus are back, life after life. As claimed by the Tibetan leadership that anyone practicing Dorje Shugden one will take rebirth into the lower realms. That’s wrongly says . Interesting post.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Not for me as I do have Ds pendant with me and chanting Mantras helps me. Most hotels do have special unwanted guests . I did experienced this before while staying in old hotels .

    Odiyan Retreat Center is a 1000-acre spiritual home for the Dharma in the West and to support Buddhist centers and practitioners in Asia. Founded by Venerable Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche in 1975, the Odiyan way of life integrates creative and challenging work, with a path of self-exploration. Built entirely by volunteers from all around the world . They work in service of peace and harmony for all life, through the creation, preservation, and activation of ancient wisdom symbols and teachings. An amazing site where it is a living mandala, a sacred symbol found in Tibetan Buddhist culture. This mandala contains five temples and thousands of other sacred symbols. The community volunteers work tirelessly to maintain the mandala so as the benefits of this ancient stream of teachings remain alive. This center provides countless invitations to integrate mindfulness and meditation into everyday experience. Truly wonderful concept indeed. A place with beautiful architecture, temples , a diversity of plant life and animal friends as well. Interesting read . Hopefully our very own Kechara Forest Retreat Center will grow to be like Odiyan Center .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The interesting thing about a dream is that, as long as you do not stop trying to reach it, it is going to come true. The imagination from a dream and to a painting turn to be real. An authentic form of Manjushri stunning statue now took place in the centre of a beautiful pond, sending waves of blessing to all sentient beings in Kechara Forest Retreat and its surroundings environment.

    May all those who come to see Lord Manjushri receive the blessings of the three principal paths as intended through the aspirational prayers made based on Rinpoche’s kind advice.

    Mother Mary Teresa , known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary who had dedicated to life in helping the destitute and dying in the slums of Calcutta,now known as Kolkata. During her lifetime Mother Teresa was well known for all her humanitarian efforts, her motivations. She set up soup kitchens, a leper colony, orphanages, and a home for the dying destitute. Inspiring indeed she educated the poorest of the poor, and fed the homeless. Considered as one of the 20th Century’s greatest humanitarians, she was canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. For more than 50 years she had comforted the poor, the dying, and the unwanted around the world. From Calcutta to New York, Albania ,Yemen and many more around the world. She built a global network of nuns and lay volunteers, who today operate hospitals, health clinics, homeless shelters till to this days. She was such an enormous inspiration to many. Meaningful poems by Mother Teresa tells us a thousand words , so true indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Great Saint.

    Meaningful poem composed by the 8th century Buddhist Sage Shantideva. Shantideva’s masterpiece shows the way to transcend the limitations of selfishness and realize the boundless compassion of the Bodhisattva. The goal of a Bodhisattva is nothing less than benefiting others and helping others to achieve enlightenment . When people achieve enlightenment, they become free from samsara , rebirth and suffering. Reading this poem again tells us a thousand words, inspiration poem to ponder.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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

    5 yearss ago
    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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian
