It’s been hard…

To Your Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche,

The work, practices and assignments you have given me are REALLY HARD AND NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO DO. I decided to let go of my attachments, silly samsaric expectations and selfish reasonings and suddenly your instructions became so much easier for me to follow through and carry out.

Until the end of my life, I will carry out your instructions my precious guru. Your instructions are much better than the ‘instructions’ given to me by my parents, peers, friends, elders and many people I met along the way. I know I will not heed what they say but will follow what you say all the way. I look at your qualities and the way you lived your life and I know your advice is correct. I just let go of my attachments and it becomes easier. I love you Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

Your humble and ridiculous student,
Tsem Rinpoche

I was 18 years old when this was taken back in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Here I am in this photo with my most precious root guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He has profoundly changed my life for the better forever. Not a day goes by I don’t think about him, love him, miss him and yearn for his presence and teachings.

I meditate on him in my heart every single day. He was everything that a high Tibetan lama is said to be and more. From the moment I heard his name before meeting him from a friend who had met him already, faith instantly arose in me. Instantly faith arose in me. I did 100 prostrations to his picture everyday until I met him. I wanted to make a spiritual karmic connection with him so that when I met him, I can receive many teachings and that is why I made the prostrations.

No other spiritual teacher although all of them were great has this sort of meteoric impact on me. It’s unexplainable. 30 plus years down the line, my faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is unshakable. I will always follow and practice what he has taught me and given me. I will never abandon my teacher or any practice he has given me no matter what obstacles come my way.

No matter if my life is threatened, or I am disliked or segregated for following his instructions, I will never abandon any of his teachings. No other teacher will ever have me change my practice I have received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. May I meet Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in all my future lives too and come under his care. I forever bow to him and place the crown of my unworthy head to his feet. I will follow, meditate, trust and believe in my guru always.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

 
这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。

每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。

其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。

我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

谦卑的詹杜固仁波切

    Be loyal to your guru. Be close to your guru. Be honest with your guru. Never give your guru excuses but always accomplish your assignments that your guru has given you. Be loving, devoted and sincere with your guru. If you conduct yourself in this way, you will see positive transformations in your mind. ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    Be blessed with these rare videos featuring explanation and advice about Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in his own voice. The teaching was requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, one of the earliest masters who taught Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

    Beautiful picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. It is amazing I was able to meet him and learn from him. It was such an amazing opportunity. Tsem Rinpoche

  4. Samfoonheei on Apr 16, 2018 at 11:54 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings. Rinpoche’s compassion and guru devotion is one example of how devoted Rinpoche to HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. We shall never abandon our spiritual teacher no matter what happened along our spiritual path. We are fortunate to have Rinpoche teaching and guiding us all. By letting go our attachment our mind will be more open in life. I found Rinpoche’s blog and found Kechara Soup Kitchen. That’s where I am today, learning and practice Buddhism and it has changed my life to live a life meaningful.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Lama Yeshe was a very devoted student of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Lama Yeshe very much loved and respected Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and was the first lama to invite Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to the west. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave vast amount of empowerments, oral transmissions, teachings and sogtae of Dorje Shugden to many of Lama Yeshe’s senior students. Towards the end of Lama Yeshe’s fruitful life, he was in the hospital and physically shutting down. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was giving teachings in Switzerland and was requested to fly in which Kyabje Zong Rinpoche most graciously did. Here in this picture is Kyabje Zong Rinpoche doing special prayers for his student Lama Yeshe. Lama Yeshe was already partially paralyzed, but true to a meditation master, his mind was extremely clear and bright. You can see Lama Yeshe leaning towards Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in deep respect and devotion. Lama Yeshe practiced all the lineages, yidams, protectors such as Dorje Shugden given to him till the end of his life. He never gave up on any of his practices as he has great devotion to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and his other lamas. Lama Yeshe’s samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was so pure, intact and perfect till the end. A great inspiration.~Tsem Rinpoche

    耶喜喇嘛是至尊嘉杰宋仁波切的忠诚弟子。耶喜喇嘛十分敬爱嘉杰宋仁波切,他是第一位把宋仁波切邀请到西方弘法的上师。嘉杰宋仁波切曾为耶喜喇嘛的许多资深弟子传授灌顶、口传、教诲和多杰雄登托命灌顶。在耶喜喇嘛即将走完丰富人生旅程之际,他躺在医院病床上,身体已经逐渐衰败。当时正在瑞士弘法的嘉杰宋仁波切被邀请前去探望他,宋仁波切欣然答应了。这张照片显示嘉杰宋仁波切正为弟子耶喜喇嘛进行特殊的法会。耶喜喇嘛那时已经处于半瘫痪状态,但作为一位禅修大师,他的心识却极度清醒。在这张照片中,可见耶喜喇嘛以无限的敬意和依止心,把身体倾向宋仁波切。耶喜喇嘛终其一生都修持上师所传授的传承、本尊、护法修持如多杰雄登法门等。他从不放弃任何上师所传授的教法,因为他对嘉杰宋仁波切和其他上师均拥有极大的依止心。耶喜喇嘛由始至终都对嘉杰宋仁波切保持清净、完整和完美的三昧耶。这真是一个启发人心的典范。~詹杜固仁波切

    The reason Guru instructs challenging tasks are for us to transform our mind so we can accept and work hard to achieve it. The task is hard because of our fixed mind and perception on how things should be done. When we let go of our pride and trust our Guru, all things will become easier.

    It is never easy to be the ‘bad’ person but Guru out of his compassion take up this role to guide us , just so we can transform to be better. Thank you Rinpoche for your teaching.

  11. Sean Wang on May 3, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    Rinpoche is no ordinary person. Any “ordinary” person would give up if they were given instructions to teach people like us. Rinpoche’s compassion and guru devotion trumps all of us and inspire us to achieve the same.

  12. Tong sunsun on Dec 25, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    短短的几行字看似简单,殊不知这当中是蕴藏着多少智慧和依止心, 和放下了多少的自我,傲慢和执著,如今上师已经做到了,我们还等什么?

  13. Wylfred Ng on Dec 24, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    上师五十颂里面说的很清楚, 我们所有灵修上的成就都源自于对上师的依止心。 仁波切一直对我们强调的也是这一个东西。

    谢谢仁波切给了我们一个很好的例子。 师父对师父的依止心是我们全部人都需要学习的。

    A short and sweet letter laced with huge doses of Guru Devotion for us to emulate. Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing this humble and ridiculous student what true Guru Devotion should be.

  15. Jessica Yap on Mar 8, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    What a beautiful Guru Devotion that Rinpoche is portraying.. Even though Rinpoche said that Rinpoche does not want to go out of the monastery to teach at another country, but because Rinpoche’s guru devotion. Rinpoche trusts and go all the way with H.H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s instructions. I truly admire this trait(among others) of Rinpoche.. Admirable and inspiring!

    Thank you, Rinpoche.. For everything!

  16. Sharon Saw on Feb 13, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Today, Tsem Rinpoche received a message from the incarnation of Zong Rinpoche, who invited Tsem Rinpoche to visit him in Gaden. This is evidence of Rinpoche’s clean samaya with Zong Rinpoche, which has led one full circle. I know Tsem Rinpoche is very busy with our work here in Kechara and cannot travel at the moment but i do hope that Tsem Rinpoche will be able to meet his Guru again soon! For us students, we can learn from Tsem Rinpoche’s example and put aside our attachments to make our Guru’s instructions the highest of priorities and if we follow this, and keep a clean samaya with our Guru, we will definitely reap the right results.

  17. Sean Pang on Aug 25, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    By being a devoted student of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, we gained a Guru in you.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this message. Thank you for pretending to be a normal student, and showing by example what all students of Buddhism who have the fortune to be near a teacher should do. Thank you for writing this one verse, in which Rinpoche has made concise the essence of Guru Devotion in the Vajrayana tradition. This should be taken as heart advice by all Rinpoche’s students as it tells us what to do, whether in times of crisis or on a day to day basis. I will follow.

    I look at this post with ‘new eyes’. I see now why Rinpoche has been urging us to go on social media in a long time and i see now why I’ve been resisting. It’s all my negative fears and habituations coming in the way.

    Just as you observed your Guru, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s exemplary qualities and how he lived his life, always focused on benefiting others, so have I observed you. We all know that Rinpoche doesn’t exactly love to go on social media, but because of your great love and compassion for all,you have not only mastered it, but taken it to great heights. So now we must do the same, always remembering it’s not to feed our self-cherishing mind, but to open up our hearts and minds to bring peace and happiness to all, that we now must immerse ourselves in social media.

    HE Tsem Rinpoche’s guru devotion is legendary among the monastic community. Even though HH Zong Rinpoche passed into clear light so long ago, Tsem Rinpoche’s faith and guru devotion to Zong Rinpoche still remains as strong today as it was then. Tsem Rinpoche embodies the “50 stanzas of Guru Devotion” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsnoJEwXjyM). In Rinpoche’s iconic book, Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale (http://vajrasecrets.com/books/english-books/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html), Rinpoche talks about Zong Rinpoche and how he served Zong Rinpoche when he was a teenager. Rinpoche was never taught how to serve, he just did – out of pure devotion. Even the decision made by Rinpoche to be ordained and go to Gaden was based on his complete faith in Zong Rinpoche as Heruka himself.

    Rinpoche shows us by example how the guru-disciple relationship should be and how by following our guru’s instructions to the T, and surrender our own delusions, we will achieve all the results we aspire for. Thank you Rinpoche for Rinpoche’s guidance always.

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for this short yet powerful teaching. After i met Rinpoche, I realize because of our attachments or bad habituations, we become very selfish. Selfish in a way that we do not even care to follow guru’s instructions or assignments that actually will help us in overall. In fact, we become very selective on assignments that we like to do. This is so wrong. This teaching has taught me nothing is impossible, if we have full faith in our guru.

  22. Choisheem on Jun 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche,
    This letter to your precious Guru is so inspiring. I know I am no where near to your qualities, these are the qualities I am putting into practice in every little way I can. May I be able to devote to my guru like you do.

  23. steve holley on May 13, 2012 at 7:40 am

    Dear Rinpoche I was immediately drawn to this photo of H.H.Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.It seems to me to capture all the Wisdom of the Ancients.I had the great good fortune to meet H.H.in the early 1980s when He visited London and stayed at the then Manjushri London Centre,now Jamyang B.C. It was clear to all that H.H.was the very epitomy of all that is wise, compassionate and powerful,and a little scary, at least to this rather feeble mind.They were exciting and happy times and feel privileged to have been introduced to the precious Dharma by such great Masters.
    And now having found your website it seems like the source, and resource to inspire us all and the fulfillment of the Guru’s purpose. Glorious Teacher of our Time.

  24. M. on Apr 13, 2012 at 2:13 am

    My dearest Guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche,
    when i read your words to your lovely Guru H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, i feel so much love and compassion from you to him. i now your mind and the mind of H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche are the same and not different. I am a nobody, i know. But i want you to let know, that you are really the best model for a good student. how could anybody say anything different? samsara is not perfect, i know. but if the motivation is pure, the fruits will be the same.that´s karma, isn´t it? please stay healthy and happy for long long time. i really love you. samsara will be stay a long time, right? so i know we will see us some day. if i don´t come into hell, i will stay in samsara to help all the others.ok…not everyone will be happy to hear, that i will stay ^^ in love and light.
    ps: perhaps you will read me and you will know, that there is a poor student in samsara who get inspirated by you.i give my best to don´t embarass the buddha.we will see if it will be enough 🙂

  25. Li Kim on Apr 9, 2012 at 3:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Letting go has been one of the greatest lessons I have learnt since meeting Rinpoche. The biggest thing I let go is my Ego for all the wrong things. Today, I have converted that same energy of preserving my ego to wanting to succeed and fulfill all Rinpoche’s instructions to me.

    At times I am overwhelmed by how much there is to do, and I go into a silent panic attack. I then just let go of my attachment to “what is a lot” and just tell myself, “If Rinpoche says I can, I can Full Stop.” Then I just go!

    Thank you My Guru.

  26. Su Ming on Apr 6, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this picture of Zong Rinpoche. I like this picture a lot. He looks very grand.

    I have not met him but hearing about Zong Rinpoche from Rinpoche always touches my heart. It put all of us to shame on how we fail to serve Rinpoche compared to how Rinpoche serve Zong Rinpoche. Our Guru Devotion can never be compared to Rinpoche’s. Even till today, Rinpoche still holds on to the promises Rinpoche made to Zong Rinpoche 29 years ago in 1983. Many of us, would have forgotten our promises we made even 2 years ago or some a month ago.

    I learned a lot about guru devotion from the stories Rinpoche relates to Zong Rinpoche. And I aspire to work towards the devotion Rinpoche has for Zong Rinpoche.

  27. Mc on Apr 6, 2012 at 3:49 am

    Thank you for this wonderful teaching Rinpoche. What is “possible” or “impossible” are all decided in our own minds and we are usually motivated by things we like and we talk ourselves out of doing things we don’t like. In that way, we limit ourselves.

    We are all the better because Rinpoche has never let “impossible” situations override his great kindness to teach the dharma.

  28. tenzin llhamo on Apr 4, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    Without Zong Rinpoche, we will not have Tsem Rinpoche. Without Tsem Rinpoche, we will not have Kechara and all the beautiful teachings, love, care, understanding, changes in lives, people that comes with it!
    Thank you for all you have done Rinpoche! For I too will not be here without Rinpoche and have meaning in life.

  29. Victor Phang on Apr 4, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    For a normal people, it is hard to have strong devotion to his/her guru; harder to follow 100% instruction from his/her guru; hardest to let go all the attachments in life. Today with your action, you are our role model and showing us all these can be done. I still have many many things to do and learn in order to strengthen my guru devotion.
    Thank you very much.
    With love,
    VP

    I love him too!! silly american women, but I know he recognize me from somewhere..such a big smile .

  31. Deki on Apr 4, 2012 at 3:13 am

    The way Rinpoche elucidates the wisdom…its so clear and simple yet so profound and I can relate to it so well…your wisdom light dispels the darkness in every crevice in me. Let me never be far from you but always receive your wisdom rays. With Great Devotion!

  32. wahying on Apr 4, 2012 at 1:24 am

    不可能还是轻而易举,都在一个念头。转个念,面前的景观也跟着改变。要在困难面前看见天堂,那要多少的修练和信念来达成啊。我相信因为坚信上师,让我们就算不明白为什么,就算再苦也能走下去……

  33. mima on Apr 3, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Thank you again and again Rinpoche for everything you are doing for others. Your way of teaching cuts trough all obstacles and is so beneficial as a strong example of what to do and not do. Your teaching goes right to my heart and even I am very dedicated to my teacher and already as given 20 years of my life to work at his side, I keep learning from you and it keeps me on the right track to work with my teacher in the beat way I can. I am so far from the Nine Attitudes from Guru Devotion and I am so inspire by it as it is exactly what I need to work with. I am such a slow learner but your teaching is giving me precious tools to keep doing my work in the best attitude towards my teacher. I am eternally grateful for everything you are doing to help us all in every way you can. Deeply in my heart I rejoice to have found you on the internet I am so happy for all your guidance that resonate strongly in me and helps me to be a better person and a better student.

  34. Seng Aun on Apr 3, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    You are truly one of a kind. You may be ridiculous (as you said), funny or anything but deep down, you are ridiculously hard working, kind and compassionate. We are so fortunate to have you as our modern day Guru.

  35. Seth Chong on Apr 2, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This story is very inspiring.Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants.
    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    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

    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
