Yesterday I experienced true generosity…

Sep 8, 2011 | Views: 1,143

Actually it doesn’t matter what the gift is but what matters to me is the sincerity. I really value sincerity a lot because it is a rare quality and it tells me I can trust a person and they genuinely care and are grateful.

I wanted to tell you all about a gift I received yesterday which was so incredible… I was coming back from a visit to Wat Pho and also to the Chao Phraya River with Ethan, Pastor Loh Seng Piow and KB. Returning, we saw this homeless lady who was getting ready for bed on the pavement. You know, she was moving her things about, and just organising herself and I was watching her as we were in a traffic jam, she was very perky and busy with her preparations.

So I asked our taxi driver to pull over and asked Ethan to go and give her some money. What happened next really amazed me.

I was sitting in our taxi and watching from a distance, and I saw Ethan give her the money. After that she spun around and grabbed the best thing she had, and tried to get Ethan to take it. I was shouting at him not to take it because I didn’t want to take anything from her, but she kept insisting and she followed him all the way to the car. Ethan kept trying to leave and politely tell her no but she didn’t let him go. She was really insistent that Ethan take it and of course I didn’t want to take from what little she had… I was trying to give to her help and here she is giving to me!! But then when she came to the car, I looked at her and I realized she was so sincere. She looked insistent… so to let her give meant alot to her. So I told Ethan to take it from her, because to not take it from her would hurt her more.

And that’s not all. After Ethan accepted her gift, she got on her knees and prostrated. I watched all of this… I mean, she REALLY prostrated – she was there on the street which was cold and wet, and she was prostrating her thanks to us. It’s not as though I gave her a huge sum, just enough for her to get by until I go back and find her again (and I AM going back to find her again and help her some more) but she was so grateful. And there I am sitting there in the car, dry and comfortable and with the air-conditioning on. I was totally embarrassed because this woman is on her knees on the street and prostrating in thanks.

I wanted to share this with you all because the experience really moved me and inspired me. Even someone who lives on the streets and has nothing, still has something to give. Still so generous… She really wanted to give us something in return even though she owns nothing but what we would consider ‘trash’, so she gave us the BEST OF WHAT SHE HAS. She has great material poverty but she is definitely not poor in terms of her spirit. This woman has no home or roof over her head, and after I gave her the money, I saw she was so happy. We saw her go and get something, maybe food I’m not sure – but she has NOTHING and we have so much. How come she can give when she has nothing, AND be so grateful to receive?

I’m going to use her gift to make prayers for her and offer it on my altar to the Buddhas so she can collect merit. Her offering WILL NOT GO TO WASTE. I will also take some of her things and insert them into a statue on the Ladrang altar, so she can continue to collect merit. I want her to create a connection to the Buddhas so that in a future life, she can meet the Three Jewels and learn the Dharma, and she WILL meet the Three Jewels.

Everyone, please think and contemplate. What do we have to complain about? How come we have so much but we find it so difficult to be generous? I’m not talking about generosity that is monetary or through expensive gifts but genuinely giving from our hearts.

I humbly request you all to give. Give tirelessly and continuously. When you die, what can you take with you? Ultimately nothing belongs to you so give and never get tired of giving, and never get tired of making others happy. If you are Buddhist, GIVE. If you are Christian, GIVE. If you are Hindu, GIVE. If you are Muslim, GIVE. Be generous and be kind, and live to give to others. Give your money, give your time, give your energy and give your effort HAPPILY AND UNCOMPLAININGLY AND WITHOUT HESITATION. Do it with a smile and because you GENUINELY want the other person to be better because you gave to them.

I am still so amazed and inspired and humbled by the lady’s actions, and I really rejoice in her generosity. I will go back and find her and I will do more for her. I pray so much that in the future she can meet the Dharma and the Buddhas because I really want her to be okay.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

P.S Since we met her, we have gone back to give her money for food and will return again. It would be so good to have a Kechara Soup Kitchen in Bangkok.

 

This is the bag the lady insisted that Ethan take… such a humble offering but it really means a lot to me

The bag’s contents… it doesn’t seem like much to you and me, but everything is clean and neat, and properly kept or folded… the lady obviously treasured them very much

There was an envelope of used lottery stubs she picked up here and there, some cassettes and empty cosmetic boxes, and also a leather organizer

Inside the leather organizer, again everything was neatly folded and filed. All the old lottery tickets were put together, her saved up advertisements were put together. Also she had some writings and notes but I can’t read it because it’s all in Thai

Some cassettes of Thai music – This will be inserted inside a Buddha statue as an offering so the lady can collect affinity and merits with Buddha.

Papers and bottle cap

    This is such a heart-warming story. The lady in the story was a homeless and she didn’t have a lot. Even though she is poor but she was still willing to give to show her appreciation. After receiving the kindness, she was so grateful that she kneeled down and prostrated. This is really touching.

    This story shows that we don’t have to be rich to give, but we have to be sincere. We have to be grateful when people are kind to us, we should never take people’s kindness for granted. Always think of how to lessen another person’s sufferings, through giving, we can find happiness.

    The items offered by this lady were not valuable or even useful but they were priceless because this was all the lady had and she gave it all. It is so nice to know she had made a connection with a living Buddha and she will be blessed by the 3 Jewels. May she be able to practice Dharma if not in this life but future life. May she cross her path with Tsem Rinpoche again in the future.

    Its so generious of these homeless old lady on the paveway.She gives out happily even though she has very little for herself. She is so kind and generious indeed.She make a living by what she get, but she has make a life by what she is giving.We should be inspired by her kindness and generiousity.Its reminds us of we should be happy with what we have and value in our life by giving.The bag which she gave to Ethan even though contained nothing much yet it meant alot to Rinpoche.We should appriciate what we get even its little and treasure generosity as a profound act of kindness.
    Mother Teresa once said …..
    …If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful and inspiring experience .

  3. Lin Mun on May 1, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    This lady is so generous and appreciative of what she received. Although she doesn’t have much but still willing to give the best of what she has. It is a shame when so many of us are only willing to give when we have extra.

    We should learn the positive value shown. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful experience.

  4. Chris Chong on Feb 29, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this amazing story. This story stucked me deep. Generosity is not only practiced when we have some what well off. We don’t have to be rich to be generous. This lady is a perfect example.

    When she receive some generosity from others, she quickly repay the kindness with generosity as a gratitude. Although she doesn’t have anything, she is willing to give away the best possession that she has. She may be not rich in the materialistic sense, but she is rich in spiritual sense.

    Whenever we want to make offering to Buddhas, we might think that maybe we should do it when we have the extra cash to offer something nicer. We keep giving ourselves excuses to procrastinate and delay the offering. What mattered most is the motivation and not the value of the offering. Thank you Rinpoche for this lesson.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    Truly a beautiful touching story. I am glad people like Ethan was there to experience it for it will leave a mark and an imprint and hopefully this will manifest again in the future (lives) for us to be and giving as this lady has shown us so purely.

    She has nothing yet she is willing to give the best of her treasure to us because we showed her kindness. I guess this is where the teachings of Lord Buddha reminds us that it is due to the kindness of these kind of people that we are allowed to practice generosity and collect some merits from this act.

    Yes being poor sucks big time, but sometimes when we are poor and not in our luxurious high and mighty high horse, it grounds us to being real humans. It can triggers something deeper inside us and to be grateful for the little things we often miss and took for granted that no money could ever buy. Perhaps this is why the poor are rich and the rich are poor, poor in character and values.

    This old lady reminds us of what we should value in our life and what we should hold precious which is to have gratitude, and to be generous and never take anything for granted. Thank you for sharing this precious teaching/story with us.

    After reading this I cannot help but to have tears flowing down my eyes. The lady’s actions has touched me deeply. It shows that how much we can still “give” when we have nothing. The lady’s character is really something that we should look up to. She gave all she had to thank Rinpoche. As compared to her, I am so ashamed.

    Everything is always given to me, but never once, I think of repaying the person or even showing gratitude to them. The lady has nothing, but she has a great heart. I believe with that, it is something that we should treasure in times like this. Treasuring such spirit instead of our materialistic items.

  7. Jutika Lam on Feb 11, 2013 at 12:58 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is very inspiring how a homeless and poor lady had so little and yet when Rinpoche saw her and gave her some money she gave nearly all that belonged to her.

    Most of us would think that it all actually looked like like rubbish but to the lady it must have been very precious to her as that was basically all she had.

    I was truly amazed that she followed Ethan all the way back to the taxi and made Ethan take her offering, what I found even more touching was that she even prostrated to Rinpoche for taking her gift.

    I am thinking that she probably must have met Rinpoche in Rinpoche’s Previous life and upon seeing Rinpoche it struck an imprint in her mind.

    I agree that we should start a Kechara Soup Kitchen in Bangkok, Thailand as well as in India as I heard and seen for myself that there a lot of poor and homeless people in both countries.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story of yours.

    Love
    Jutika

  8. Low ksjc on Jul 23, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thanks for the sharing. What I read truly brings tears to my eyes.No matters how much we have,most of us are still craving for more for the things that we do not need.Once we attain it we might just loose interest and focus on other unnecessary things. It is indeed difficult to find someone who shows sincerity and contentment for generosity that others show in time of need as deep down they will think they deserve more.

    I will practice contentment and generosity as what comes around will go around .

  9. Yoke Fui on Jul 4, 2012 at 7:29 am

    It’s not about flowery words or millions of dollars. A sincere action from the heart touched Rinpoche immensely. I rejoice in the lady’s heartfelt gratitude which is a powerful example of what pure & sincere action means.

    Thank you generous Lady, I learn a great lesson from you.

  10. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Very touching true life event indeed!

    What this lady has given to Rinpoche are things that many of us may not keep, yet, they are the most precious things for her and she chose to offer them up to those people who showed her kindness.

    Her belongings and prostrations will not go to waste, for she offered her valuable belongings to living buddhas and the merits are abundance.

  11. Ashlee on Oct 12, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing this story with us. It’s so touching that this lady is materially poor but spiritually wealthy and generous and so sincere. We take it for granted most of the time that generosity has to be in the form of “money” and truly in this case, even a homeless person can be so generous & sincere with the little that she has. Thank you for spreading the love in Bangkok.

  12. Ashlee on Oct 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing such a wonderful story. The lady is indeed materially poor but spiritually wealthy. She’s teaching us that even a homeless person can be generous and sincere in her own ways. We always take for granted that generosity always have to be in terms of money and truly in this case it’s not. Really moved my heart reading this. Thank you for spreading the love in Bangkok.

  13. john on Sep 20, 2011 at 3:55 am

    What a beautiful story Rinpoche, and humbling too, i got quiet emotional reading it. I can imagine how you wanted to help but didn’t want the lady to be without her treasured possession and she wanted to repay your kindness.

    I’m not sure why but it reminded me of the story of Asanga and the dog and the old lady who saw the golden foot of Maitreya.

  14. W.H. Cheah on Sep 17, 2011 at 1:07 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this incident. Your write out has given me a good insight to the understanding of what generosity means ans how one should practice it in our daily living.

  15. W.H. Cheah on Sep 17, 2011 at 1:02 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this incident. Your explanation has given a good insight to the understanding of what does generosity means and how one should practice it in our daily lives.

  16. Kusang on Sep 16, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Dear Venerated Rinpoche,
    From here in the Himalayas I have been reading your blogs and find them inspiring, beneficial and most profound.Thank you specially for the Vajrayogini teachings! The gift you have given this woman by enabling her to earn continous merits through her gift to you is the greatest of all.Thank you Rinpoche for inspiring me with your great Compassion!

  17. tenzin llhamo on Sep 15, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Wow! Thank you Rinpoche.
    Few years back when a friend and I was in Shanghai during winter, I saw a mother with 3 kids begging by the roadside at 3am and it was freaking cold(-2). I was crying from the moment I got into the taxi all the way back to the hotel. I was so sad seeing them beg in the cold in the middle of the night. I went back the next night and they were there again. We donated a few hundred RMB to them and asked them to go home.
    The story above reminded me of that and it brought tears to my eyes because the old lady gave was so grateful and happy. Its a joy of being able to help people without hoping for anything in return.

  18. Rita van der Wijden on Sep 15, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Thank you for opening the hearts of so many, including mine.
    I think this was a karmic meeting for all involved 🙂 The lessons and the blessing went both ways, no doubt. Thank you again for your most beautiful posts. I will take this lesson with me through the day.

  19. skyong on Sep 14, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Money and time. We have both of them, or one is more than the other.

    Or I give excuses like I don’t have much money, and I don’t have much time. I am used to receiving things with conditions. And I give with conditions as well. I seldom give without expectation in return.

    I have taken so much from others. Can I reciprocate as much?

  20. ngeow chin on Sep 14, 2011 at 11:57 am

    Hi Kevin,
    Interestingly, I also had the same thoughts when i read this heartwarming and touching story. I still hv the cd of the old movie which i think was a Japanese production.That scene somehow was most memorable for me which stayed in my heart through the years.
    Yes, actions which are pure and sincere are very rare. When there is an example, it make me realize I have to work harder to close the gap.
    I am so happy for the old lady to have met Rinpoche due to her pure prayers from past. Thanks to Rinpoche , this encounter and story will definitely bless many as sure as it had done for me.

  21. yf wong on Sep 13, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Very shy to tell you i hardly write to you in your blog

    um….. she is great, i have a lot to learn from her, she is amazing. I wish that in the near future i too could be like her, full of love & generous without strong material attachment in life.

    Many many Thanks… Lastly I Wish you good health always.

  22. monlam on Sep 13, 2011 at 4:07 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this experience with us. Rinpoche always gives love and care to everyone he meets.

    I was very touched after reading this story.

  23. Ethan Chu on Sep 13, 2011 at 1:10 am

    I was sincerely stunned when this kind lady kneel down and prostrate to me… I was speechless, stunned and felt ashamed of myself. It was drizzling wet, hard stone pavement and she was in her torn clothing and shorts and she was living outside!!! If she gets sick, she’ll suffer a lot!

    I am thinking to myself, she didn’t choose to live in such state, she didn;t choose to leave her family, she didn’t mean to not earning or working.. she didn’t want any of these but she is grateful. She is thinking about “others” even in a situation like that. And don’t get me wrong, she wasn’t mad or anything. She sincerely “SMILING” and got down her knees and thanked us.

    The other day, Su Ming, Wan and I returned to pay her a visit, brought warm drinks and food for her as it was a raining day… She was preparing to got to her “cardboard bed”, she even politely talked with a smile and also trying to dig something to give it back to us. It was a bag of old clothing, but we insist that it’s cold that she should keep it. Guess what she said?

    “That’s all I have, people would come and bashed me up and take my things away, and I had to move from time to time…” That really brought tears to my eyes… She rather us having her “only things” because she thinks we are good people… How selfless with so much gratitude!

    Please make prayers for her. Please bless her that she will have a better life.

    Having been homeless myself this touches my heart

  25. Joanne on Sep 11, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Lovely story. I used to work with a poor family in South Phoenix doing grief work with their 3 grandchildren as mother had died young of cancer, was on my caseload. The family wanted to give me something, once was a can of peaches. Sometimes you must allow them to give, as is a reciprocal act and preserves their dignity. Namaste.

  26. Kevin Tan on Sep 11, 2011 at 1:45 am

    This old lady reminded me of a real cool story about an old lady wanting to see Buddha but had nothing to offer. She cut her hair and exchanged it for oil and offered oil lamp to Buddha. In the temple of hundreds of oil lamp, as Buddha turned the wheel of Dharma a strong wind blew out all the oil lamps except the one offered by the old lamp. Her lamp could not be blown out because it was a lamp of sincerity, offered by the old lady who had nothing but exchanged her hair to make an offering to Buddha. I wish if only I could have half her sincerity. I would be a good start for me. This story always inspire me to give and give sincerely.

  27. patsy on Sep 10, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this touching experience with us. She showed us what true giving is. She may not have material wealth but she truly has an abundance of inner wealth.

    I am so happy that she has the merits to make this sincere offerings to Rinpoche. May she be protected by The Three Jewels in this life and future lives.

  28. Lim Han Nee on Sep 10, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    This is a truly touching story about giving from the heart, unconditional giving. Coming from someone who has so little, who was giving her worldly possessions in that one gesture, it strikes at one’s heart ‘s core. I find myself thinking:’Have I ever been that generous in my life?’

    This sweet homeless lady graphically portrays what is said in the Lamrim about the Perfection of Giving.There’s no thought of “I’ in her giving.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this touching story and for giving us a teaching in the sharing.

  29. Frederick Law on Sep 10, 2011 at 12:17 am

    im speechless reading this post by Rinpoche, knowing that a homeless lady being so grateful for the help provided, and how great generosity showed even she has nothing much on her. The homeless lady gratefulness and generosity sincerely from the heart really put me to shame, it is something i must learn from this lady.

    Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche, Tashi Delek.

  30. Datuk May on Sep 9, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    I am humbled by Rinpoche’s amazement with this dear homeless lady’s generosity when the most unconditional giving person I have met in my life is Rinpoche.

    The lesson I learnt from Rinpoche is selflessness. I will never end thanking Rinpoche, my Guru for the precious learnings in my life.

  31. Jace Chong on Sep 9, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the touching story.

    It reminds me of some similar stories from KSK volunteers. They met some clients who are very grateful. One of it was an old man living at the corridor of a shop at night, he is very poor and dirty. Everytime the volunteer sent him food, he starts looking for things to give back. Sometimes was sweets, sometimes coins, sometimes 1 riggit note…he just wanted to express how much he appreciate the help.

    He might be unfortunate to be on the street, but he is so grateful. Same as Rinpoche’s story, it teaches us a lesson to appreciate what we have and stop complaining.

    May they have better life, and meet Dharma!!

  32. Sarah Yap on Sep 9, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    So toughing… by just reading the event that took place, i could feel her sincerity. I can only imagine how it must have felt to actually witness it. She showed us the true value of an offering, it is not how much it’s material worth is, but from where the offering came from which is from the heart.

  33. KH Ng on Sep 9, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche. Thank you for posting this blog. I am really amazed by the true generosity of this lady. It serves to remind us that generosity is more than giving material things but more about giving from the heart. It is about the sincerity. The amount and value is also relative to the affordability to that person. Perhaps for those of us who have some possession, we feel that we do not have enough, hence we crave for more and the act of giving is against that craving.
    For those who really feel that they already have enough then giving is easy. It is all in the mind.
    This lady really feel that she have enough and the fact that she rejoice enough to prostrate to the giver shows she is really in a contended state of mind. She rejoice is every good fortune however little. We can also learn from this.

  34. William on Sep 9, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    This is a really touching story. A woman who has nothing still have something to give. That is true giving. I guess that it is also non-attachment to anything that made her able to give her prized possessions. A lesson to be learnt. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this lovely story.

  35. Doreen Teoh on Sep 9, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this experience with us. The more an individual have, the more we are reluctant to give…the least the person has, the more the person would give away. It has become an attachment when we have things. When there are abundance of materials, food, and etc, we forgot the value of giving from our heart with sincerity, and giving for fame and glory. This lady has truly give with sincere and she is so thankful just to receive the help given to her. I thank her for giving me this lesson.

  36. Karen Chong on Sep 9, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Outer wealth does not bring you eternal happiness. Only inner wealth can generate you long lasting happiness and contentment. It’s not like economy crisis, you face the risk of losing all your money, but with inner wealth, no matter what circumstance you face, it does not go away.

    I see the sincerity and gratitude in this old lady’s action, she taught us it’s not necessary to be rich (in terms of outer wealth) to give. Love and care are something priceless that you cant buy with money but something you can always GIVE to others.

  37. Dee Dee Quah on Sep 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I felt humbled after reading this story. She re-newed my motivation to do something more today – GIVE.

    Thank you for this teaching. _/\_

  38. julia Tan on Sep 9, 2011 at 1:29 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this touching experience with us. She is a homeless who has nothing but she insist to repay Rinpoche’s kindness with the best thing she had with her immediately when she received Rinpoche’s money. Where by we have everything yet so hard to give. Some people even find it offensive when they were asked to donate just a few ringgit to a temple. Yes, we definitely need to contemplate.

  39. Helena Chin on Sep 9, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this experience in Bangkok, such a inspiration to many of us..she is truly RICH from the heart!!

  40. Philip Yong on Sep 8, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    So much to learn in just one post and one homeless lady. I thank Rinpoche sincerely for putting this post up for all of us. I also thank and make prayers for the lady for if it wasn’t for her, there will not be this post. Her sincerity has touched the hearts of many and will be a great example for all of us.

    I hope whoever who reads this will share my aspirations to make prayers for this lady as well!

  41. Lim Tat Ming on Sep 8, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I rejoice in this Lady’s sincerity & true generosity!

    Many of us (including me) will be very embarrased after reading this touching story! We will realise how little we have been giving back to the society and to all those who had been very kind and generous to us.

    This Lady is truly extraordinary. She has demonstrated the perfect example of generosity. We should follow and practise giving with true sincerity as shown by this Lady.

    Thank You for sharing with us an exceptional story and a teaching on giving.

    With Metta,
    Tat Ming

  42. mm on Sep 8, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    She shows dignity and strength, bless her..

  43. KS on Sep 8, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    I’m so touched after reading this. i don know what to say..

  44. Sock Wan on Sep 8, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    This is really a very touching story and it brings tears in my eyes. She doesn’t have a lot, but she is so generous and sincere.

    She reminds me of my grandparents. My grandparent did not have a lot, but they were very generous, helpful and sincere to people. My grandfather always told me to be grateful and be forgiving. He was not rich but he was always contented, happy and serene.

    This lady may not be rich in terms of money but I am sure she is rich in her heart.

    Start sharing and giving without agenda, we will definitely find the true happiness within.

  45. Alex Hay on Sep 8, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    is not about the value of the gift or the money. It is the heart that counts. I would love to assist in KSK Bangkok if have the opportunity 🙂

    Alex Hay

  46. chee kien seng on Sep 8, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    dear Rinpoche,
    thk you for sharing this, i really really…. touch abt it.
    i thought that generosity is only giving materialistic, how much or how many to others(the more the grater).but is not abt the figure and valume, its abt our giving attitude from the sincere heart(mind).

Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

EXPAND
Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

Be Relevant

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at care@kechara.com and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

    我应该选择哪一位上师?

    自达赖尊者颁布多杰雄登禁令以后,许多原本跟随上师修持多杰雄登的佛法修持者,突然陷入两难的情况。究竟该继续跟随上师,还是要听从达赖尊者的话,放弃雄登修持?许多人的考量往往是,自己的上师不过是一名普通僧人,而达赖尊者却是闻名全球的藏传佛教精神领袖,这是否意味着达赖尊者所说的才是唯一的答案?

    “洗浴便是我们清洁身体的方式。 但对于心灵,我们从没洗浴,也从没洗净心灵。 我们的日常生活充满了各种情绪各种事,会使我们会生气、妒忌,贪婪、存妄想,我们从没洗净自己的心灵。 唯一能洗净心灵的的做法就是打坐, 打坐是对心灵的洗净。

    在物质世界中,你一天没洗澡都没所谓,但如果是几天没洗澡,那你就会开始意识到问题的存在,且受其困扰。 要是你一周没洗澡,那其他人就会意识到这个问题,因为你身上会散发气味,所以这时候其他人也会受其困扰。 要是你没洗澡的时间再长一些,那麻烦可大了。“

    的确,在现实生活中,我们一天不洗澡就浑身不自在,除了身体觉得黏、脏和痒,身上也会逐渐发出臭味。过了两三天,不只是自己,别人也开始会察觉到。但是,对于心灵,我们却从来不给予相应的注意,试想象一个几十年从未洗涤过的心,会是一颗多么浑浊的心?也难怪社会问题如此严重,患上忧郁症等各种心理病的人日益增加。问题的根源就在于大家都不去洗涤和沉淀自己的内心,一个浮躁不安的人作茧自缚影响的是个人的心理健康,许多浮躁不安的人在一起,自然就产生摩擦,继而衍生社会问题。

    由此可见,佛教提倡静坐,即便不是为了觉悟和成佛,其背后的意义还是十分深远的。

    The journey to the heavens might be a spiritual one but it often materialises a physical aspect, too. It is perhaps this aspiration to reach the world above that inspired Myanmar‘s Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple.

    Devotees believe that Taung Kalat (which means Pedestal Hill), perched atop a volcanic vent, is home to four of the 37 Great Nats whose significance extends to all layers of Burmese culture and belief. In Burmese Buddhism, Nats are regarded as demigods or spirits who act as protectors of Buddhist practitioners. Some are guardians of the hills and forests. These deities inhabit the labyrinth of shrines, stupas and monasteries which sit tightly together just metres from the precipitous edge.

    Education plays a key role in the world and mankind’s progress. It allows us to learn from the past so we can shape a better future. Discoveries and advancements in fields such as Science, Mathematics, Medicine, Psychology, and Engineering have all been made possible because they were driven by education.

    However, many education systems developed in the past have remained stagnant while the world has changed, and continues to change at an unprecedented pace. These outdated systems fail to provide the necessary syllabi to meet the needs of our children today and the challenges they will meet in the future. With many schools offering educational structures and learning systems closely resembling those experienced by our parents and grandparents, modern children may not be as prepared as they should be for the world ahead. Modern education systems should take into account the changing landscape of mankind and of the world, which is now driven not only by automation and technology but also an increasing awareness of our impact on the environment, and our connectivity with each other and the earth.

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

    Good news, everyone. Another group of five Kecharians have completed their three-day, two-night Dorje Shugden Retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is an annual retreat that is organised by Kechara Puja House and four out of the five retreatants joined the retreat for the first time. The retreat took place at Manjushri Guest House, which is a special place perched on a hilltop within the enchanting forest landscape of Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Have you been to watch a Chinese opera before? Did you notice the front-row seats are always left unoccupied? It is said that these seats are reserved for the unseen beings like the deities and spirits.

    For the Chinese opera performers, they worship a god called Wah Kong Sifu. Wah Kong Sifu is the highly respected guardian of the Cantonese opera. It is believed that only with his blessings can the show go on as swimmingly as planned. In spiritual performances of other cultures, similar sets of rituals can also be observed.

    马来西亚彭亨州文冬的暹猛路除了有个闻名的情人瀑布,还有一座 “有求必应”、香火鼎盛的金泽财王庙,是当地不可错过的旅游胜地。金泽财王庙位于克切拉禅修林(Kechara Forest Retreat)的入口处。供奉的是来自西藏的护法,专给人们财富、人缘、生意、长寿、健康等各方面的帮助,至今给不少人带来财运。这些人拜过金泽财王后,有些人在短时间内多次买字中奖,有些几十年不曾中奖的人也突然中了奖。总之,有什么需要都可以向金泽财王求助和求保佑。金泽财王庙每天开放24小时,方便各界人士前来上香、点灯、许愿、祈福。

    Inspiring story of Mahapajapati Gotami who initiated the tradition of female monastic. She was known to be the first woman to seek ordination for women. It was not easy for her to become the ordained women since it wasn’t practiced and the women were not in the equal position as men. She goes against the odds and was fortunate that she received ordination directly from the Buddha and became the first female bhikkhuni of our time. Story of Mahapajapati Gotami ,has proven that women gain attainment same as men.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story.

    Wonderful post for beginner’s introduction to Dorje Shugden. Many will get to understand , learn and practice it. Very details for any beginners , for most to understand the many types of dharma protectors, the benefits and the history. May more and more people get to understand Dorje Shugden’s practice better.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this wonderful sharing.

    Interesting article on Uppalavanna first time coming across this , something to add to my knowledge. Uppalavanna was considered to be one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. The story on Uppalavanna is not only the longest in this collection, but also the most complicated and fantastical. Many ancient tales, twists and turns about her to date, being the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The White Old Man is a well known iconic figure symbolises wisdom, longevity and to some cultures, prosperity. Therefore it is not surprising to find the worshipping of a similar While Old Man amidst Russian and Mongolia local folklores. The incorporation of the White Old Man into Buddhism goes to show that there are many shared values in the two. Most importantly the White Old Man is a source of strength and blessing to those who prayed to him, as prescribed in his prayers and mantras. Thank you for the informative sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel that her entry in fashion world started when she could not find the perfect props and costumes, she was given the freedom to make them herself where the experience gave her the confidence to strike out on her own as a freelance stylist in 1967.

    And the happy thing is within two years, the clothes she made garnered enough attention for her to create her own label. At the same time, she reiterates that her creativity feeds from a wider perspective and has “nothing to do with politics or war”.

    Thank you so much for this article. In many article, I have came across the word ‘sadhana’, but i don’t have any idea what the word really means. Sadhana mainly helps us to achieve union with that particular Buddha-deity and that means taking on the enlightened qualities of that particular Buddha.

    Even though Rinpoche has become so exhausted where he is unable to recall whether he has done or not his sadhanas, he still makes up for it the following day. Thus, he has maintained his sadhana steadfastly, never wavering or giving up on his practice.

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

    Look at the poor baby chasing after the mother. Why do we do that to them? It's time to seriously think about our choices in life and how they affect others. Be kind. Don't break up families.

  • 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. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 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

Earlier this month, five members from our Puja House engaged in a Dorje Shugden retreat, spending three days in Kechara Forest Retreat strongly focused on Dorje Shugden whilst reciting 185,000 of his mantra. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to create a closer connection with this enlightened Dharma Protector, as H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche shares. If you would like more information about how you too can engage in retreats at Kechara Forest Retreat, please direct your enquiries to our friendly Front Desk team (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).
