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!

    Chanting mantras is an ancient practice that calms our mind and soul. Scientific studies have found that chanting mantras even just for 10 minutes can decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms in the human body. Without us realising when we recite mantras, the synchronization help to improve brain function in long run. Even just listening to it mantras regulates blood pressure, the heart rate, brain waves and the adrenalin level. There are many benefits to mention and is extremely powerful when chant. Mantra has the power to sooth anxiety and create joyous feelings. I am so fortunate to learn and practice some of the Mantras. All thanks to Rinpoche.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this sharing.

    Everyone of us do get angry and annoyed , even shout but there’s always a reason for that. Revisit this old post again , HH Dalai Lama is totally honest with his reaction, he too shouts. HH Dalai Lama believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. He is a man of peace where his words and shouting comes from pure compassion. Many believed he is purifying one’s negative karma using wrathful means by shouting. Everything he did solely to benefits others. Truly inspiring action.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Watching the videos of once upon a time with Rinpoche by Pastor David had me understand more of Rinpoche . Truly a unique perspective of Rinpoche through the eyes of Pastor . Interesting indeed to know how Pastor came to meet Rinpoche to learning and many more. Coming to know Kechara had me changed to where I am now….learning, practicing Dharma. At the time of commenting this blog I am half way through watching the videos. Will watch all the interesting episodes from A to Z.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    Everyone has the right to freedom of expression and freedom of speech. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. Thanks to Mr Matthew Sinclair for speaking up clearly with logic. Our world is diverse, acceptance and understanding are the keys to peace and harmony. We choose what we want to practice, no one can interfere with our choice of religion and beliefs. Mr. Matthew, for being open minded and wrote such a good letter that promote religion freedom and human rights. Everyone deserves a well respect on their religion. We should not simply condemn others because of their practice, their choice is theirs. Using the profession to influence and make false accusation rather statement on Dorje Shugden practitioners. Thank you Rinpoche ‘s sharing on Mr. Matthew Sinclair letter.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this précised teachings. Take responsibility of what we are doing in our life. Everyone of us go through difficult situations in life. But always think and behave in a more positive and optimistic way . Taking responsibility for our attitude, change our attitude, and the way we look at things that will change our life. Nobody’s perfect, we learned from mistakes , everybody’s got regrets. We say wrong things and we do wrong things and fall. We have to accept failure ,we learn from there and grow. Doing Dharma work and take whatever responsibility to improve ourselves. Doing Dharma work is to transform our minds , we are trapped in samsara through one life after another until we find awakening through enlightenment. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, so it’s important to embrace our imperfections and work on improving ourselves, helping and benefit others.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Even though it a old post yet reading it had me feeling sorry for such cute doggie. Due to some mortgage problems the owners left Sue the doggie without someone to look after. Sue was lucky somehow someone from Shelter Friend adopted her. Thank you to those who made it happen
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow again with folded hands.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

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.

    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

Restoring the shine after rubbing! Chin Shuen and Hue are polishing the serkym set & offering bowls here. 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day @ Kechara Penang Chapel by Jacinta.
Last Monday, 28th Nov 2022 was 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day. Kechara Penang members gathered together to clean the altar, polish offerings bowls and etc. Sweeping, cleaning and arranging offerings are very important in Buddhism. In fact, it's the first of the preparatory practices as taught in Lamrim. While we clean, it's good to chant mantras or listening to it, such as reciting 'Dulpung Drima Pung' when we are sweeping.

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