Talk on relational karma & international Sangha at Kechara

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends,

Buddha Dhamma Sagararanna had their new temple opening ceremony at Port Dickson last Sunday. Many sangha members from around the world attended the ceremony… including nuns from Taiwan, nuns of Myanmmar and local Dharma practitioners. How beautiful! I was invited to attend the opening, due to hectic schedule I was not able to attend, but Kechara’s Liaison Irene Lim attended and presented gifts on my behalf.

The sangha members were led by Venerable Chang Ern from Buddha Dhamma Sagararanna Buddhist Association. Venerable Chang Ern also serves as the Chief of Malaysia Buddhist Association (MBA), Negeri Sembilan branch.

Kechara’s liaisons Irene was contacted by Venerable Chang Ern, and Irene immediately offered to host the group of sangha members for dinner at Kechara Oasis (KO), Jaya One. This was a Dana offering on behalf of Kechara at our own Vegetarian Restaurant!

At KO, Irene gave a warm welcome to this group of sangha members with an opening speech thanking them for giving her the opportunity to offer Dana. Pastor Ngeow and Liaison Paul Yap were also there to represent Kechara House. The group was offered delicious, healthy and vegetarian food… I was told that they liked the food offered to them very much!

After dinner, Irene and the group of sangha members went to the Kechara House gompa for a visit. The sangha members and other lay Dharma practitioners were then given a tour of our Kechara Gallery.

During this time, Ven Chang Ern and the group of nuns from Taiwan left to another Dharma center to escort Venerable Chuan Dao (4th abbot of Miao Xin Si, Taiwan) and Venerable Zong Hong (abbot of Jin Gang Chan Si in OUG, Kuala Lumpur) to our center. Venerable Zong Hong is the Head of MBA’s Youth Section.

I only got to know of the visit a few hours before they arrived at KO! As it’s very meritorious to make offerings to sangha members, I decided to go to Kechara House to meet the group and present a few offerings to them. So while the monks and nuns were having dinner, I was with Paris and my Private Office arranging offerings for these holy monks and nuns.

When I arrived, I was surprised to see so many of our Kechara members upstairs at the main prayer hall! They only got to know about the last minute visit 30 minutes before I arrived, so I did not expect it at all… I was happy to see all of them. After I presented the offerings to the sangha members and their assistants, they had to leave because it was quite late already. I did not want to keep them up for too long, especially the older sangha members who had very kindly changed their schedule to visit KH…

I felt inspired to give a short Dharma talk to our Kechara members on why we make offerings to the sangha. I don’t like my students to do things blindly without understanding why they are doing it. I feel with knowledge, Dharma activity and study and practice becomes more meaningful.

I explained that our karma with each other is relational. This means the weight of our karma depends on the person’s relationship with us. For example, the karma of hurting our family and friends is heavier than the karma of hurting total strangers who we have never met before. Likewise the karma of hurting our parents is much heavier than the karma of hurting our brothers and sisters. The karma of hurting our mother is also heavier than the karma of hurting our brother, because she carried us in her womb for 9 months. Now that is at an ordinary level. Then our relational karma with strangers, friends, parents, spouse and sangha are explained in brief here in this talk.

Actually I have spoken about this many times before but I wanted to share it with Kecharians again because I feel it is very very important that we make offerings to the Sangha to support their dharma practice and generate merits for our KWPC or Kechara World Peace Centre which is our retreat land in the mountains and our own attainments. I hope you will listen to this talk and really put it into your mind. It will greatly benefit your understanding of why supporting the sangha is important.

    Its wonderful to know other Buddhist center interact with each other.
    It is important to understand why supporting and make offering to the Sangha,as explained by Rinpoche. Its a beautiful moment where there is so many Sangha from locals, Taiwan and Myanmar gathered together visited Kechara and been introduced about Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong. Monks,nuns and visitors were offered gifts such as statues,thangkas by Rinpoche.Rejoiced to all of them.
    Infuture hoping more and more international Sangha could come over and see for them selves the beauty of this Buddhist institution.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful explanations and sharing the video with us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for making offerings to the wonderful Sangha here. Very happy to see so many Sangha from Taiwan and Byammar visited Kechara. The whole Gompa filled up with very positive and pure energy. Specially thank to the POs that has been taking very good care of them. I hope to see more Sangha visiting Kechara in future. May we create the course to have our own Sangha in Kechara soon.

  3. su_zan on May 20, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    This is a great story to share. Offering of dana and gifts to monks and nuns. Kechara is growing in many level.

  4. patsy on Mar 30, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    It is such a great honour to see so many monks and nuns of different traditions gather in Kechara. It is very meritorious to make offerings to the sangha and through this giving Rinpoche showed us the practice of generosity that is put into action

  5. vc on Mar 30, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    i should address Tsem Rinpoche as His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and not people.

  6. vc on Mar 30, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    people like tsem rinpoche should come to this world earlier or before.in my opinion,it is a bit late though to spread the buddha’s teaching,because as everyone would know it those days many problems in the society occur and this should be rectify immediately,but still Buddhas teaching is not available to the masses.In the old days, there is no internet.But now,Buddha’s teaching can effectively spread through internet and this has made a great impact on human’s lives.But still,although Buddhas teachings available to many people these days,it is the attitude of the human that matters.If buddhas teaching right in front of us and we do not practice,then it is of no use either.we should make this world a better place to live although this world is not perfect.

  7. Yokefui on Mar 30, 2012 at 11:23 am

    It was wonderful to witness and be part of this event.

    Rinpoche always shows us by his own example how to put dharma in action.
    May KWPC be the confluence point for Buddhism in all the different lineages.

  8. lucy yap on Mar 28, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    It was a memorable night!!Was so fortunate to be there to witness Rinpoche making offerings to the international sangha and listen to Rinpoche’s teaching.May Rinpoche be in good health always and with KWPC manifest swiftly.

  9. pastor ngeow on Mar 28, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    It is always wonderful to see Sangha from various traditions coming together.We are all aware that there are differences in the external forms and methods used in all religions and even within the same religion.However what matters most is what is shared in common by all – cultivating a good heart.This is what can overcome whatever differences and disagreements in the name of peace and harmony for all.

  10. James Long on Mar 28, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for all these for everyone, to make offering to the sangha to create tremendous merits for everyone. In Malaysia, many people do know the benefit of it and why we make offering to the 3 jewels, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

    It is so nice to see all 3 yanas of sangha gather together to make the dharma grow in this region as a big Dharma family.

  11. Koh Hee Peng on Mar 28, 2012 at 1:39 am

    Ouch!! By watching the video I can feel the paid caused by the slap on David’s face. It was an awkward moment, best served as a reminder to all us to always have our ethics on check, before or after puja, or at any time and at any place, for should we misbehave, we are slapping the Buddha’s face after receiving all the loves and cares from the Buddhas.

    • David Lai on Mar 15, 2013 at 8:58 pm

      Mr Hee Peng, who is David? Are you talking about me but I don’t get what’s it got to do with this video. What’s with the slap by Rinpoche? I don’t get the relevance and I feel you are trying to make a point about something or perhaps, you made a mistake about posting this message. Perhaps, you were actually referring to another post?

      Anyway, I think this post have a natural universal appeal for all Buddhists because making offerings to the Sangha is really part of our spiritual practice. It is always advocated to make offerings to the Sangha to generate a lot of merits. I remember reading somewhere that the Buddha mentioned in the Vinaya that even if a 10th stage Bodhisattva makes bows to a member of a fully ordained and ordinary monk, the Bodhisattva will generate merits. That shows how beneficial it is that the vows that a monk hold.

  12. Pastor Susan on Mar 28, 2012 at 12:56 am

    It was a joy to have so many sangha members in Kechara that evening. Looking at these pictures sure brings back very happy feelings. The robes of the sangha members were of different colors due to different traditions but all share the mutual goal,… to eliminate sufferings for themselves and others, to achieve lasting happiness for themselves and others.

    If you like what you see here, then I highly encourage you to keep supporting Rinpoche’s works and Kechara. No matter where you are, we can all contribute towards making a difference in this world together.

    peace to all.

  13. Datuk May on Mar 27, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    We travel to see wonderful monasteries, stupas and numerous Buddha statutes and we are happy as we believe we have gained merits just by having set our eyes on such holy sites and objects. We have done our pilgrimage.

    Sponsoring and giving to the monastic sectors are forms of perpetuating these “wonders” to benefit many for years and years into the future. Rinpoche’s teaching on Dana offerings is of such a tremendously large scope, as sponsoring is not only financial but rather with all that we have and in my mind most importantly our time.

    We live in an era of accumulating and the most important thing to accumulate is great quantity of merits that will help us in this life and many more to come.

  14. ECheah on Mar 27, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    The dharma that Rinpoche always espouses is dharma-in-action. What’s the use of getting attainments with nothing to show for? If dharma practice leads one to gain the virtues of kindness and generosity but it’s all bottled up inside, then it’s probably not really kindess and generosity. What strikes me always is how effortless Rinpoche’s act of giving is. There is no evidence of any attachment, agenda, holding back and hesitation or expectation of anything in return. If I look at my own miserable effort at giving, it’s always tainted with the 8 worldly concerns the complete opposite of what I see in Rinpoche. What I keep seeing in Rinpoche is a mirror to my inner piteous self and constant reminder and inspiration to aspire towards.
    But rather than stop doing everything since the motivation is suspect, we should thrudge on. Rinpoche’s recent quote rings deep in my ears. He said, “Doing some good grudgingly is better than doing something bad happily”. I do have hope after all that something good will result.

    • DR on Mar 27, 2012 at 6:52 pm

      I couldn’t have said it better myself, ECheah.

      “Doing some good grudgingly is better than doing something bad happily”. Words of wisdom from Rinpoche. Yes, it does give us hope till we have enough merits to correct our motivation till we “do good happily at all times”.

  15. Han on Mar 27, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    So happy to see the beautiful pictures of offering DANA to sangha at Kechara. I missed the event, fortunate to view the teaching in video.

    Thank you all for the hard work!

  16. skyong on Mar 27, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Very very beautiful.. Offering to sangha is the best gift one can make to show our support and develop our compassion 🙂

  17. lewkwanleng on Mar 27, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I am so happy I was there. So many monks of different traditions gather in Kechara. Such an honour for Kechara!

    Making offerings to monks will allow us to collect a lot of merits so that our KWPC will manifest soon to benefit even more people!

  18. nicholas on Mar 27, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    I felt so fortunate that day to be able together with Rinpoche and the rest to make offering to the Sangha members. Together we make dedication for the growth of Kechara works & KWPC manifestation.
    Rinpoche’s teaching on why we do offering to Sangha and the karma relationship was very profound. It’s so wonderful to see so many Kecharian there too to witness and receive the teaching from Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving such a great opportunity to be part of this meritorious act.

  19. Margaretlee on Mar 27, 2012 at 9:57 am

    I rejoice that so many sangha members visited Kechara, receive gifts, blessings and connections from Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s message is clear, we are all the same, even in different robes.

    Kecharian spirit is everywhere, thank you for all the hard work of the pastors, all the liaisons, Private Office and a dedicated team from Kechara Care.

    May all of Rinpoche’s wishes all come to fruition!

  20. terri on Mar 27, 2012 at 9:27 am

    so beautiful

  21. Amy on Mar 27, 2012 at 8:10 am

    Wow, so many beautiful pictures, I rejoice for the gathering of all sanghas in Kechara.

  22. Don Buchwalter on Mar 27, 2012 at 4:56 am

    What a wonderful, uplifting, story! It is always good to see Dharma practitioners together – and even more wonderful when the various schools are represented! Just seeing all of these wonderful, compassionate, beings together is very beneficial.

  23. mima on Mar 27, 2012 at 4:48 am

    I apologize for using the word people…they are not people they are higher beings!

  24. mima on Mar 27, 2012 at 4:45 am

    Kechara and Rinpoche are the most generous and honorable people in the world. Thank you again and again for everything you are doing!

    It is inspiring reading this article and how Johnny described Buddhism and how the teaching has helped him. Many of us always chase for the worldly things as this is what our expectation and perceptions are formed since young. Always thinking that money, status and good career are important in our live and something we can’t leave without. But Johnny summarise his understanding on the teaching very well and how Buddhism impact his mindset. We should be clear of our motivation. Our own fulfillment which is mainly self gratification is not real happiness. Happiness is when we bring happiness to others.

    Wow…. That’s great finally science has finally proves meridians do exist. I am doubtful about it until reading this article and google more of it, have opened my knowledge . The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine . It was at the Seoul National University, scientists has confirmed that the primo –vascular system is a crucial part of our cardiovascular system. Our meridians span throughout our body and thus are linked to every major part of it. When there is harmony and balance within our body we are healthy and if its disturbed and unbalance , then illness will arises. Interesting read and there’s plenty for me to understand . Modern science is finally working hand in hand with ancient knowledge with tradition way of treating illness. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Since young, I used to read and hear about mermaid in books and so forth. All I knew ,mermaid is a creature with heard and upper body of a female human. But do not know further than that until I read this interesting and facts about it in this blog. Many cultures have their own versions of mermaids, There are indeed so many folklore stories, legends and myths of mermaids from different countries and each defer from each other all around the world. Mermaids have fascinated people for centuries and inspired many sightings by individuals. Do it really exist , no one could tell. There is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Well, it seem that mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in schools . They have even been depicted in operas, paintings, books, films and comics. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Through the words of Ribur Rinpoche we are fortunate to get a better understanding of a great master, Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. To see the image of these Enlightened Beings, to hear their names, is so rare and precious for us. Tsem Rinpoche our Guru who received the dharma from the unbroken lineage of these great masters and we are very fortunate to receive teachings and oral transmissions from Tsem Rinpoche. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche been devoted to his guru has inspired, and benefited many through his teachings up to this day. Many great master and high lamas were his students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the memoir of Ribur Rinpoche’s profound meeting with Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that divination is one of the ways for enlightened beings and Buddhas communicate with ordinary beings. Just because we can consult Dorje Shugden through divination, it does not mean we should go to the Protector for everything under the sun.

    Dorje Shugden himself prefers to see we try to solve our own problems first without relying on divination at the very beginning. Dorje Shugden is most pleased when we use our own effort and intelligence to be practical and solve our problems as best as we can.

    Thank you so much for this article. The Buddha compassionately taught methods for all of us to purify our karma which suit our current karma-bound situation. It is important to know that purification of our karma become necessary because karma creates suffering and holds us back from achieving higher states of consciousness.

    Buddha’s body is just as effective for purifying negative speech karma, as it is for purifying negative body or mind karma. So, those unable to recite mantras can circumambulate around mantra stones, for instance, to purify speech karma. Thank you.

    The article was well described about Dorje Shugden and Vajrapani. The powerful roles and functions of the dharma protectors to remove of all obstacles and other emotional issues that can easily lead us away from our spiritual journey.

    Thanks for the beautiful sharing, It is best and good to practice to worship them daily in our life.

    Rinpoche is very kind to share Dorje Shugden to all of us. There are so many high lamas who can confirmed that Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri and is very beneficial especially during this period. In order to bring the practise do us Rinpoche has to withstand many negative comments and threat from the Tibetans and non Dorje Shugden practitioners. Rinpoche has taken so much effort to give us this knowledge despite all the challenges. Thank you Rinpoche and team for all the great work. We can learn all about Dorje Shugden through this website and other articles. Always making it so convenient for all to access. May everyone around the world have the opportunities to meet Dorje Shugden and engage in this holy practise.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that these pujas that is done in Kechara Forest Retreat provide all of us with powerful protection, purification, good health, wealth and abundance, and the blessings of the enlightened beings.

    Admission is free and all are welcome. All of us are encouraged to attend this potent puja in person. It is important to observe a strict vegetarian diet with no black foods (onions, garlic, meat, fish, eggs, radishes, alcohol) one day before and on the day of the puja itself.

    This is really horrible.Very sad to know cows are skinned alive for the skin, and for that, their limbs are being cut off.Let s stand up for these animals who cannot express themselves through words.

    We have to be kind to the animals .Consider opting for animal -friendly fashion item. Thanks for the article and hopefully with such imagery, more people would be aware and come to avoid leather and fur products.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that India is a beautiful country, where it is also the birthplace of many great thinkers, philosophers and teachers who have inspired great changes in society.

    Sangharakshita has highlighted the importance of the commitment in one’s spiritual life, the importance of a spiritual community, the special connection between religion and art, and the need for a ‘new society’ which supported aspirations and ethics based on Buddhism. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that Choje-la is not an ordinary monk or person but also a highly trained monk who has been personally trained by the previous His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche where he has been fully authorized by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to be the official Panglung Oracle over 40 years back.

    Choje-la is a very knowledgeable monk, a very kindly, well-experienced monk who has no agenda, has very strong guru devotion and very pure in his monk vows. Thank you so much.

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

    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
