BFM (Radio channel) recording Justin’s briefing to KSK volunteers

Jun 28, 2010 | Views: 434

Press really like stories about others helping others. I thank BFM radio so much for highlighting KSK because it is giving out 800 packets of food per week now and needs help to maintain this.

Justin is very devoted to Kechara Soup Kitchen. Justin is a rare kind soul.

Thanks a lot ahead of time.

    Justin Cheah has made a real sacrifice by joining full time in KSK. And devoting his time and hardwork to the homeless by not only distributing food to the homeless but also find jobs for them. Radio Channel Recordings also helps in promoting awareness apart from Star Metro . Kechara Soup Kitchen KSK distributes food packets twice a week once on Saturday nite and another on Sunday evening. Initially the venue for packing food before distribution was at Kechara House 2. But now through the hard work of Justin Cheah and Ruby KSK has acquired a centre in Jala Imbi where the homeless can come for hot food now.

    During my first visit to KH ,i joined KSK on the weeked,Patsy called and told Justin that am joining KSK that night.
    By the time i turned up that night,when i told him my name,he immediately knew that am the one from Penang.He was so busy that night putting volunteers in group without mistake.He was so kind to put me in one of the van that have 60 packs of food so that i won’t be back too late.
    I saw so many homeless people in KL,and i saw how KSK helped them.
    Many of them was hungry and they open up the food and eat it immediately.Its a lesson actually to let people know not to waste food and cherish whatever they have now.
    What are we doing every saturday night?clubbing,watching movie,hang out with friends and involved in all kind of samsaric activities? Why not go out and helping the homeless,no matter you are sponsoring the food or be a volunteer to help,its more meaningful to spend your weekend and helping someone you don’t know and without expecting anything back.Justin and KSK doing it every weekend,and this is what Rinpoche want ,to help the homeless.
    During the wesak fair when everyone so tired after whole day help out,Justin still continue doing his KSK midnight round,you can feel his energy and heart for KSK.

    The picture showing Justin Cheah briefing KSK volunteers before they go out for their food distribution rounds is a common sight at Kechara House every week. Justin does it tirelessly week after week, year after year to ensure that the volunteers know exactly what to do, where to go, what to look out for so that the food are safely delivered to those in need of it. For the volunteers who are distributing the food, proper guidelines are made known to them to ensure their safety while carrying out their mission. Justin is very passionate about what he is doing and how he can help the homeless get off the streets. There was once I asked him what does he do during his free time and his reply to me was that he would drive around town to scout for homeless people so that that he can arrange for KSK to bring food to them and think of ways to help them . Such is his sincerity and dedication in helping the homeless people. The homeless people in town are indeed lucky to have Justin Cheah!

    The Idea of KSK started because of H.E.TSEM TULKU RINPOCHE. During HIS YOUNG DAYS, HE WAS HOMELESS FOR A WHILE ( DUE HIS COMPASSINATE WANTED TO LEARN DHARMA) HE HAS TO RUN AWAY FROM HIS HOME.( please find out more information in http://www.tsemtulku.com home page) BECAUSE HE HAS WENT THRU THE EXPERIENCED OF HOMELESS, THAT’S WHY KSK IS BORN.
    KSK was started by Liaison Su Ming about 5 years ago. Then now leading by Ruby Khong and her committee members. Of course Justin is one of them.
    Justin definitely has contributed so much of his time and effort into Kechara Soup Kitchen. I believed Justin has choosen KSK as his own courier. That’s the reason why he has invested his LIFE AND EFFORT INTO IT! LIKE 24 / 7.ANYTIME, YOU CALL HIM, HIS THERE TO HELP. His is very helpful and patient to deal with people. HOW WONDERFUL GUY HE IS! KEEP IT UP JUSTIN!
    Love, angel

    To see Justin always brings a giant smile on my face.
    His qualities of kindness and care make him one of the most lovable person I know.
    For having done the KSK rounds with him a few times, I hae seen with my eyes how skillful he is in dealing with people on the street, that don not always becessarily welcome helpers with open arms.
    He examplifies the truth that giving is the best way to be content. Deep inside, we all know that, and that is why, I think, we like to hear of acts of generosity in the media, it brings a little bit of light in our lives.

  6. Margaretlee on Jul 8, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Many thanks to BFM radio for giving KSK the airtime to help raise awareness of our organization. As KSK grows and feeding and helping more homeless , we will definitely need more support in terms of funds or materials. It is great to know that BFM recognizes Kechara Soup Kitchen as a main player in community service. Any exposure like this would eventually enable KSK to serve the needy for efficiently.
    Justin is a kind soul that is worth mentioning. He is extremely dedicated to his work on the day he joined KSK, and he takes pride in what he is doing. Come rain or sunshine, Justin will be there for the needy. This selfless act of constantly thinking of how to benefit the homeless, is what I would like to work towards to.

  7. Sean on Jul 8, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    Business FM is a good radio station. KSK is a good organization which provides food to the homeless, combined they formed a great opportunity to spread the Dharma and promote feeding and taking care of the homeless and urban poor of the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The picture looked very funny. Uncle Justin works very hard for KSK and Kechara House etc. So, I wish BFM will continue to support KSK in any way and BFM gets good response from the public for no matter what they do and I wish that KSK can continue to save the homeless in streets of KL in Malaysia and feed and nurture them. Finally, may Uncle Justin live long to continue his glorious works!

    BFM also interviewed your aunty Ruby and she went live on Monday at 3pm for 20 mins. I was told that we can download to listen to it 7 days from 12 July onwards.
    I am very thankful to all media for their support towards KSK. Each time when KSK gets publicised, so much public awareness is being created. A testament to that is KSK’s official phonelines will be ringing non stop!

  9. Peter on Jul 6, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    From the many testimonies of those homeless who have been helped and are back on their own 2 feet is already the evidence that KSK was meant to be what it was set up to be and have even outdone themselves with the increasing support from various quarters and reflects back what Rinpoche had in his heart for these people and having tasted that kind of suffering Himself, it is an even more powerful testimony to our country and the world.
    With such a committed and compassionate team leading KSK, I offer my salute and respect to them for every ounce of blood, sweat and tears invested thus far!

  10. may on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    Dear Rinpoche
    I went for my 1st KSK I think 2 weeks ago and it felt good.The gratitude which they have for us is tremendously overwhelming,
    I;myself was overwhelmed by how many of them were homeless.I feel good, something like a small wave of happiness, seeing their smiles on their faces when we handed them food.I felt like I did some kinda good at the end of the night,knowing I helped,though its only a small amount of people, but what really matters is what comes from the heart and helping within your capability.I think I did it somewhat within my capability and I will continue to help whenever I am available.
    Thanks Justin!
    Thank You Rinpoche.

  11. siong woan on Jul 5, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    There is a dark side of Justin that not many people know — he CAN’T STOP saying OK!! On one of the briefing sessions before we go out for food diatribution, he actually said ‘OK’ more than 30 times! Seriuosly! We counted!! LOL and Ruby was there rolling her eyes and pleaded with Justin to JUST STOP SAYING ‘OK’ !! and he answered her with yet another ‘OK’.. This is the reflection of Justin’s true nature – a sincere, kind hearted, patient – basically an ‘OK’ guy !!
    This OK guy runs around down on Thursday mornings picking up Kechara Soup Kitchen’s cleints to replace IC, see doctors, buy boots (see http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/sos/success-stories/shoe-shopping-for-shamsul/ for details) go interview, etc..all these he does with a big warm smile on his face. THIS is our JUSTIN CHEAH. Way to go Kido!!

  12. Beng Kooi on Jul 4, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS!
    Justin’s interview with BFM is out and you can listen to it here: http://bfm.my/kechara-soup-kitchen.html
    Thank you BFM for giving Kechara Soup Kitchen airtime, and for helping to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless on the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Many of these homeless are there through no fault of their own, and are unable to get the help they need to change the plight they are in.
    Rinpoche and Kechara are advocates of active social Dharma, where the principles of kindness, generosity are put into action instead of merely being studied on a theoretical level.
    As one of the KSK volunteers says in the interview, why not do something beneficial on a Saturday night instead of sitting around watching TV?

  13. Cynthia Lee on Jul 4, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    The guy on the left of Rinpoche’s photo came from another soup kitchen. The girl next to him is Kamariah. She has participated that night in our distribution rounds to research and observe how KSK functions. She will be making a documentary about homeless people. This is what I briefly heard. The point is, KSK has set a foundation of what a soup kitchen should be and for other soup kitchens to investigate and look upon as reference point. With this, KSK’s work has also proven to a major role in our Malaysian society and therefore is subject to be documented.

  14. Girlie on Jul 4, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Justin Chai-chai is the angel without wings to the many homeless people in Klang Valley. He is there every weekend, rain or shine with his troops of volunteers who come from all walks of life. Under the very able leadership of KSK President Ruby Khong, he works very hard to ensure that the homeless people not only receive the weekly food packs, but he goes to help them in any way he can – not only because it is his “job” but more so because he wants to help and he can.
    KSK started out as a small project because Rinpoche wanted to help the homeless people. It has always been Rinpoche’s wish to start a project to reach out to these people and today KSK is fulfilling that wish.
    This is a lesson in itself – instead of always focusing inwards to the “I” we should instead focus out, learning to give in terms of time and effort

  15. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Justin Cheah is a remarkable young man with a kind heart. There are not many of young man like Justin around. Justin is still eligible, I think. Is good Justin is able to keep his present single status to devote more time to feed and help others. He has gain the merits to be wealthy and not to go hungry in this life and his many lives to come when he is feeding so many hungry stomachs in KSK. He is creating causes to feed more hungry stomachs. May Justin always be able to fulfill the wishes of many hungry people. Buddha, bless Justin Cheah. Love you, Justin.

  16. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    Ha.. Ha… cute little Mumu. Mumu is the mascot of Kechara Animal Sanctuary. Mumu is a rare gem in the sense that Mumu spends the most time with Rinpoche day and night and even sleeps with Rinpoche. He is well trained by Rinpoche and develops a strong bonding with his Master. Mumu is obedient little cute monster. Rinpoche has mentioned before Mumu could be his past life student. Rinpoche is creating the condition for little Mumu to have good imprints of the Dharma for him to gain a precious human rebirth again to practice the Dharma so he may not have to go through countless of lives immerse in samsara. Mumu is so blessth.

  17. Justin Cheah on Jul 4, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    Thank you for your generous comments. I must say that all the positive results that KSK are getting is not only because my president, Ruby or my hard work. We have a brilliant team in our Vice President, Julia, Treasurer, Siong Woan and Secretary Karen. We each have our own strength and I am very pleased and blessed to be working with all of them. We compliment each other with our strength and worked harmoniously.
    It was only merely a year ago that Shefah came with her friend Grace Chin. We had 15 volunteers that Saturday night. The figure has since tripled and I must thank all the media that has helped spreaded the words and awareness to help to get more kind people coming forward to help the destitute figures on the streets to regain their dignity, respect and get back into the society.
    Thank you again!

  18. susan on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    Justin Cheah is a real sincere guy! Down to earth, no air about him and works very hard! I’ve been out on the KSK rounds and have observed how he talk to the KSK clients. He knows them all by name and the clients are open and talk freely with him about their problems.
    I’ve also seen how happy Justin is when his clients give him good news of their situation. It says alot how much Justin cares for each and everyone of them.
    Media such as BFM is so kind to help promote KSK. KSK exists not for itself but for those who have no one…Thank you BFM!

  19. chia on Jul 4, 2010 at 6:04 am

    Kechara Soup Kitchen emerged from our lama kindness and compassion to the homeless people living on the street. For past 4 years Kechara Soup Kitchen has grow tremendous to benefit many hopeless people living at street in term of providing them food, finding job for the jobless people, giving medical treatment and etc.
    Under Ruby Kong leadership and Justin Cheah hard work, KSK has fond new permanent building at Jalan Imbi, providing fixed address for the homeless people for job appreciation and simple medical aid. Ksk has bring so many good news and hope for the homeless people. Ksk shine out from Kecahara organization to public. Even now we are getting support by Malaysia Government. Kudos to KSK!
    Regards,
    Chia

  20. mayy on Jul 4, 2010 at 2:11 am

    Lately, KSK has become what it is now due to the leadership of Liaison Ruby Khong along with her strong dedicated team in feeding and helping the homeless and urban poor. It is good that the various medias have helped KSK to be widely known as a non-profit organization that has given hope to many homeless to find food, shelter and a means to support themselves. The purpose or aim of KSK is not only to provide food and shelter but to lend a helping hand, be a friend and to take the homeless off the streets and offer them a new lease of life. That makes us different from other soup kitchens.

  21. Li Kheng on Jul 4, 2010 at 2:05 am

    Hunger knows no barriers… this is such a spot-on statement. Unfortunately, this is a fact of life that many of us, fortunate souls, have forgotten because we are simply too blessed. I am grateful that KSK effectively reminds us of this sad situation and, very importantly, provides us with a channel through which we can contribute and make a difference.
    Another factor that makes KSK an attractive platform to contribute to and participate in is: they work on creating sustainable results. As mentioned in other comments, KSK goes beyond feeding the homeless: they provide other solutions ranging from medical care to securing a job for the homeless.
    Another “secret” ingredient that makes KSK outstanding and sustainable is the passion and sincere care the key people of KSK have for this cause as reflected in the extra effort taken to spend quality time with the needy.

  22. SK Yap on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:57 am

    Justin is definitely doing a good job for KSK. I remember just before Rinpoche conceived the idea for KSK, Rinpoche himself always took a few of his assistant to walk up and down the streets in KL during late nights, looking for homeless people.
    Once he found them, Rinpoche will sent us to the nearest grocery store, 7-eleven or any convenience store to get lots of bread, biscuit and water for them. If Rinpoche came across a begging homeless young mother with her baby on the street, he will buy them milk powder, give them hot food and lots of dry food, and will sometimes take them to see the doctor and give them some money too. The legacy has now passed down to Ruby and Justin at KSK. Kudos to both of them for doing lots of good work and promoting Buddha dharma in a very special way!
    Paul

  23. susan on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:39 am

    I’d like to add on to what David shared. Imagine, a young child of 6 years old, hungry and walked the streets…he was fed rice with sugar while the rest of the family ate well. Rinpoche had to grudges. He wasn’t “damaged” by his upbringing and the past. Instead, he used his pain to help so many people. How come we bring our past to the present and allows it to affect us negatively? I believe it doesn’t have to be this way as proven by Rinpoche. I find Buddhist teachings very practical, brings healing to ourselves which then naturally allows us to be of some benefit to others.

  24. Sharon Saw on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:26 am

    KSK has certainly been the media darling for a while. Barely a week goes by without a mention in one media or another. Most recently, The Star also covered KSK (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/07/ksk-in-the-star-metro.html). You can also see more press coverage here at KSK’s website (http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/press/press-coverage/)
    Being on the radio via BFM is fantastic though as it reaches a different segment of society to share our mission to help others. I am so grateful to BFM and all those media for using their resources to promote KSK because they believe in what KSK is doing. By the media promoting KSK, there will be more awareness of KSK’s mission and more volunteers will join to help us help others.
    If you like what KSK is doing, please support KSK! On July 18th, Kechara House is organising a fund raising dinner at Sunway Hotel, PJ, where proceeds will go to Kechara House and KSK. Do join us if you can – Please contact Cheri for details on [M] +6013 343 3788, [T] +603 7880 0189 [E] cheri.woo@kechara.com http://kechara.com/cn/dinnerauction/

  25. Bonita Khoo on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) had grown from a small group of Rinpoche’s students going out to the street giving away 50+ packs of food per weekend to now 800+ packs over the weekend.
    KSK had become the darling of the media since Liaison Ruby Khong took over the realm early last year and there was never looking back for KSK and Ruby.
    Ruby with the help of her dedicated team had brought KSK to a level where the public will call up to see what help they need and this is really amazing!!!
    Justin Cheah, is really an angel in helping the homeless and he really give it his all in helping to take these homeless off the street and give them a safe place to settle down with jobs so they can be independent. Justin really works tirelessly day and night for others. What an amazing guy!
    With the strong motivation in wanting to help others, KSK had acquired a building in Imbi where there will be a permanent place where the homeless can go and seek help and support. None of this can happen without the blessing of Rinpoche and most important the dedicated KSK team and volunteers!
    Thank you very much, KSK, Justin and volunteers, for your dedication towards the homeless!
    This is what I say ‘if there is a will, there is a way!’

  26. Shirley Tan on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:40 am

    This is how much Justin Cheah loves KSK. It is world cup season now, and Justin really loves football. I mean, he really, really loves football. The Saturday night that world cup began, I was in the van with him. Despite knowing that he is missing the game, he was completely focussed on his task. He did not whine or complain in any way. In fact, throughout the whole time, if you did not know just how much he loves football, you might even think that he does not care. And after we have finished the feeding routes, he drove all the ladies back to their cars and watched them get into their cars safely before he drove off. Football may be what Justin loves, but it is clear to see that he loves KSK most of all.

  27. Henry Ooi on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Justin Cheah really loves what he is doing in Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK). I have seen him in action on the streets distributing food. I have heard him patiently talking over the phone to people who rang KSK office making enquiries. He has helped a few homeless with medical aid, getting lost IC replaced, arranging for job interviews and landing some with jobs. Some homeless now hold part time and regular jobs, thanks to Justin.
    KSK being interviewed by BFM is the hard work of Justin and KSK team headed by Liaison Ruby Khong, a senior student of Rinpoche and my maternal cousin and who was instrumental in my connection to Rinpoche.

  28. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    It is really neat that Kechara Soup Kitchen has become the darling of the media. What is amazing is that a monk’s (Rinpoche’s) personal childhood struggle while walking homeless and with an empty belly on the streets of America has materialized into such a wonderful department that benefits many.
    This department is becoming more and more popular with the media and the who’s who in KL. This will directly pull up the prestige and credibility of the Kechara organisation. With a higher profile, Rinpoche and others in the organisation is able to spread Dharma farther and wider across many more segments of society that was previous difficult to reach.
    Kudos to the incredibly hard work of Liaison Ruby Khong and Justin Cheah that brought this department to this level.

  29. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Kechara Soup Kitchen has been getting a lot of recognition and press for the work they are doing. This is attributed to the hard work under the leadership of Ruby Khong and also their patron Datuk Dr. Victor Wee.
    Check out this article on the Kechara website this one features more on Datuk Dr Victor Wee

    When does the interview come out? when when when? 🙂
    Am excited to hear as Shefah Szetu of BFM really does a good job at interviewing and it’s super kind of her to come feature KSK.
    Both Li Kim and I were also lucky enough to be interviewed by them a while back (also by Shefah). Here’s my interview – go listen, goooooo! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtkA-7jckwM
    (and then watch all the other neat videos online)

  31. Judy on Jul 2, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    Justin is an incredible person – very kind, humble and funny. The work he put in KSK is admirable, and I am sure he will inspire many volunteers to do more good work for the homeless.

  32. raowenzen on Jul 2, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I know Justin since the day he joined. He is a really friendly kind soul and this personality of his will warm the hearts of the homeless.
    Its wonderful that media such as BFM recognizes Kechara’s community services to create awareness. As KSK grows to serve more n more, it will need more sponsors and donations to maintain its operations.It will need all the exposure it can get and BFM is fulfilling this.

  33. Josh A. on Jun 28, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    It’s amazing to watch Kechara grow. Wasn’t it just last year or 2 that you guys had 1 small team of people with 1 borrowed van and like 20 meals a week tops?? I can only imagine where we’ll all be in 5 or 10 more years.

    I am grateful that Kechara organise this event every year so we can make offering to our ancestor, departed families and also to all sentient beings whether alive or not. We may not know what action we have engaged which afflicted others in the past and the prayer is important to purify our negative karma. Thank you Kechara for organising this event and allow us the opportunity to collect merits through the prayer and offerings.

    A very beautiful Buddha statue. With this huge size many beings can view from a far and benefit them by planting a dharma seed to them. I’m sure the statue will attract a lot of people to visit Thimpu in Bhutan. May all be blessed and rejoice for the people for are involved in the planning, sponsorship and construction.

    A very priceless sacred Dorje Shugden thangka of the 19th Century. It was commissioned by the Mongolian State Oracle, Lama Luvsankhaidav .As the Mongolian State Oracle Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav did took trance of Dorje Shugden, Nechung and Kache Marpo, significance the importance of Dorje Shugden ‘s practice at that time to the State Oracle. And they knew that it’s a very beneficial’s practice as over 350 years, high Lamas from the major schools of Tibetan Buddhis have relied on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This Dorje Shugden’s thangka can still be found in the Choijin Lama Temple Museum in Ulanbaatar, Mongolia as to this days.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog teams for this sharing.

    An interesting short biography of the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu who was the last Lama-Ruler of Mongolia. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism and the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. Interesting read of a great Lama who has played an important part in the Mongolian Buddhism history.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    China is the most populated country of the world and is the fourth largest country in the world in terms of dimension. China is one of the most powerful and influential countries of the world at the moment. China has the world’s fastest-growing major economy. China is a multi-religious country, where Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, to name a few. Buddhism has had a great influence on the local culture in China in terms of art, literature, and ideology. A great news ……Chinese government officially supports Dorje Shugden and allow Dorje Shugden practitioners their religious freedom. Well ,high time for the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) to change their political strategies on the ban of Dorje Shugden. Due to Dorje Shugden’s controversy, many had suffered , families divided, many had suffered , Dorje Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries and so forth.
    China has benefited many in terms of economy and brought changes to Tibet and other parts of China. To date the Tibetans in Tibet wants to be part of China too. Even the Dalai Lama request to be able to travel back to Tibet.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden soon be lifted.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing the update.

    Wow …amazing a gigantic Shakyamuni Buddha statue been built up overlooking the southern approach to Thimphu , Bhutan. This golden Buddha Statue sits at one of the mountains in Thimphu known as Kunzangphodrang. Its presence reflects the dominant religion in Bhutan. Buddhism been an important part in the daily life of the Bhutanese. It was constructed in 2015 to honor the 60th birthday of Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the fourth king of Bhutan. By now this huge Buddha statue has attracted many locals as well as foreigners visiting the beautiful country of Bhutan. I do wish I could visit this amazing architecture Buddha statue in the near future.

    Great masterpiece of the 19th and 20th century of Choijin Lama Temple in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. A Buddhist monastery built in 1904 by the 8th Bogd Khaan Jebzundamba and dedicated to his brother the Choijin Lama Luvsanhaidav. Wow…It was built by a well- known architect and hundreds of Mongolian Master craftsman. Well it’s a museum now with rich collections of Mongolian Buddhist sculptures, wood carvings, and paintings. It also housed a collection of masks and robes associated with religious Cham dance. Mongolia has a long history of Buddhism, Cham dances and other religious ceremonies. This Choijin Lama Temple constitute a rich ,unique resource and one of few surviving links with the past history related to the state oracle of Mongolia. Interesting read with videos and rare pictures in the museum. We are fortunate to see it .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting sharing.

    nteresting sharing by Professor Reginald Ray for westerners or non believer or non Buddhist. Its all about the importance and impact rituals in Tibetan Buddhism. Each and every cultures have a different view of what they believes in and with unseen beings through rituals. Well to the Westerners, they view such people as ignorant and ruled by superstition. They are likely to believe in the existence of unseen beings. They seek explanations for all things based on human logic and reason. In Buddhism ritual communication with unseen beings is of tantric Buddhist practice. A very profound explanation by Professor Reginald Ray of what Tibetan Buddhism all is about. After reading it for the second time , I still got plenty to learn from the post. Will read it again for a better understanding in future .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this very profound teachings.

    Dorje Shugden is fully enlightened Buddha, manifesting as a Dharma Protector. Gyenze, is considered to be Dorje Shugden’s increasing form. We invoke the powerful energies of Gyenze, in a wealth form to help us gain resources through correct means. Such as to resolve financial difficulties, increase lifespan, material resources, merit, and so forth. We are fortunate to learn such a powerful practice from Rinpoche. Rinpoche ‘s kindness would always be remembered.
    May more people learn this beneficial practice and have faith, trust with Dorje Shugden Gyenze.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Gyenze practice and all the explanation.

    A well details information and explanation all about Dorje Shugden, for beginners. It would be wonderful for beginners to learn and practice with this brief introductions to setting an altar and to which the different types of offerings to offer. This post will definitely help those who are new .All I can say is very informative indeed.
    Dorje Shugden’s lineage and origins came from an incarnation lineage consisting of many great spiritual masters. From Manjushri until Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen before arosing as Dharma Protector more than 350 years ago. It’s a very beneficial practice which will help us effectively.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei tan for this wonderful sharing.

    Tsiu Marpo is a ancient Tibetan worldly deity who is none other than Kache Marpo. Tsiu Marpo became known as the special protector of Samye Monastery in the 17th century. The practices of Tsiu Marpo as a Dharma Protector have now been adopted by all Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Been practised within the Nyingma tradition as Tsiu Marpo and within the Gelug tradition as Kache Marpo and also propitiated within the Sakya tradition in the form of Tsiu Marpo. Well researched post on Tsiu Marpo . Interesting read.

    140 billlion is a shocking number ! So many animals were killed to satisfy our taste bud, for our clothing and wearable items. Human is cruel. We do not kill animals to survive, so why bring pain and suffering to animals. Engage in vegetarian diet and respect all beings. Imagine if we can be vegetarian even for a week , many animals will be spared from being killed.

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral.

  • 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
