Tour at KFR!

Oct 28, 2012 | Views: 1,304

Dear friends, 

A lot of work have been going on at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) for the past 2 weeks. I have been staying on site and directly overseeing the expansion of our temporary abode, Kechara Village, our main temple and Ladrang. A lot of land clearing is being done on a daily basis, so that we view the landscape better and start building works.

Yesterday, the Liaison Council together with invited guests and Ladrang staff visited the land to view the progress of the work being done. There were more than 70 visitors! There were a few people who flew in from all over the world who came on the tour… from Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Nepal and England!

Liaison JP Thong was the tour guide of the day leading the group to view the various parts of the land where we will be building on. JP gave a clear and detailed explanation to the group on our building and expansion plans. JP has been staying on the land and is on site 80% of the time to oversee the expansion of the current premises and the building of Kechara Village. He is also there on a daily basis to meet the contractors and to help out in any way required. 

The group was shown the proposed sites for the main temple called the Shakyamuni World Peace Hall. This hall will be able to accommodate 3000 people. The group were also shown the proposed site for our restaurant, gift shops, 2 new roads, the Ladrang, Kechara Village and expansion of the current premises. A huge parking lot will also be made available to accommodate many cars and buses. 

After visiting those sites, everyone made their way to the temporary abode for some delicious Kechara Oasis food! While the guests were eating, JP brought a few people at a time on a tour of the cabin area where I reside with my assistants. We have erected tents to accommodate more people as the current area is not sufficient for the work we do. Do take a look at the pictures below!

After dinner, I met up with everyone to share with them the exciting plans that we have on the land. I was very happy to meet everyone especially all of my foreign friends who flew to Malaysia to be with us. I also shared with everyone that we will have an organic farm on the land very soon. I would very much like to plant our own vegetables. I will invite students and friends to come destress by growing their own vegetables, plucking them, washing them and cooking them on their own. Rejuvenate the body with healthy organic food. 

With all if the work going on, we will need a lot of help on a daily basis. Those who wish to help out, please contact Su Ming. She is very good in coordinating. Su Ming and the Ladrang arranged all the logistics yesterday for me to meet everyone comfortably. 

She is contactable through (e) su.chuah@gmail.com (hp) +6012 291 1178, or you can contact my office at: privateoffice@tsemtulku.com.

    回看这些照片是kfr 当初最早期的时候, 那时的禅修林还是一片泥泞,车只能停在大门口,大家必须步行进入,下雨还会不时跌进泥泞。现在的禅修林设备先进,舒适,一砖一瓦都齐全。心里实在感恩我们现在舒服就是前人的努力。谢谢。

  2. jerry_sito on Dec 23, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    Seeing these past images of Kechara Forest Retreat is amazing. Although i instinctively refer to them as old photos, these images were taken less than a year ago. Actually, many people…including professionals are surprised by what was accomplished in Kechara Forest Retreat in the past 10 months. I see this as the result of having faith in Rinpoche and Rinpoche’s advise.

    I strongly prompt readers to check out the latest on Kechara Forest Retreat here http://retreat.kechara.com/

  4. tenzinkhenchen on May 28, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    I rejoice for all those who visited Kechara Forest Retreat, especially those who have travelled so far just to meet Rinpoche and KFR and receive the teachings. JP is an extremely talented and hardworking individual and I admire the fact that he has so much guru devotion and that he took ownership for building Kechara Forest Retreat. AMAZING!

  5. Martin on Nov 29, 2012 at 3:11 am

    Since the Tour conducted by JP, so much more developments have taken place in a relatively short space of time. Amongst these, a proper cement road is now being built, a lot more living cabins and toilet/shower cabins have been set up to accomodate the swelling number of Kecharians working there, Ajai the caretaker now has a nice home behind the butter lamp house, the tent city has moved to larger premises and given way for developments at The Enchanted Forest where Rinpoche’s Ladrang will be, and soon there will be proper and adequate electricity and water supply. And every day more and more beautiful plants are showing up courtesy of the “Green Team”. There is even a small aviary on the site now.

    The driving force behind this is Rinpoche who is not only manifesting KFR before our eyes but in the process have also galvanized the varied strengths of Kecharians and harnessed so many members and friends into a virtuous cause.

    For many of us, KFR offers probably the highest opportunity to collect merits in our lifetime.

  6. ERIC LEE KHJB on Nov 12, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    KFR对我而言简直就是人间天堂,能够让现代人忙碌的生活,可以有个休息站,可以让我们能停下脚步,去思考自己真正想要的是什么?同时,也能让我们的身,心,灵得到成长,谢谢仁波切的用心,让这平凡的人间也有天堂。

  7. Jessica Yap on Nov 7, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Thank you JP, Su Ming, and everyone else who’re involved in this wonderful project. I can’t wait to help out this coming Friday at KFR! Lots of progress has been made since Day 1. So excited to help out and be a part of this legend which will benefit not only us humans but to all sentient beings too! How kind of Rinpoche. 🙂

    Will definitely get my friends and family involved! hehe, see you guys there!

    Thank you Rinpoche for everything!

  8. cheryl bush on Nov 7, 2012 at 3:54 am

    I gaze in wonder at this most beautiful of scenes, wondering how many have had this same dream of *Kechara* _()_now seeing it born on *Ladrang Hill*_()_where, ‘Lakes and pools adorned with lotuses, and the beautiful call of wild geese; everything that is unowned throughout all worlds as extensive as space_()_and, ‘when shall i withdraw into the forest and live among the trees with birds and deer who say nothing unpleasant, but are a joy to live with?’OM MANI PADME HUM…….

  9. lucy yap on Nov 6, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat,a place where countless visitors will be beneficial.We are really fortunate to be given this opportunity to volunteer in this meritorious,holy land.
    With Rinpoche’s blessings and guidance,KFR will manifest swiftly.

  10. Uncle Eddie on Nov 6, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    This is what will really change our Life! Like what Rinpoche said, “With this Chamang Headquarters, it gives me something exciting to wake up to. To know what it is for…….. the purpose, the goal and the Liberation, the benefits and the lasting results make me want to be alive to do this.” Therefore, let us one and all, Kecharians, friends, dharma brothers and sisters, and well-wishers, truly get together to get this done, so as to give back to society! As our Guru has further stressed, “buiding a Headquarter for our Dharma Lineage is rejuvenating and has a purpose. Anything else pales, nest to this.”

  11. grace (KHJB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the Sharing and update, woow… KFR is changing a lot, so great that Kechara Village is in progressing..looking forward to visit KFR again.

  12. mitra on Nov 4, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    Rejoice for all visitors to KFR, especially those from Bulgaria,I am excited to see the plan and progress at KFR.I am really glad to see everybody is working hard for this project as it will bring benefits to others for generations.

  14. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 3, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Rinpoche is ever so kind to share with us his visions and plans. And we do need information so that we can share about KFR to other people. And KFR does need many people’s contribution to get it up. As many people gets involved the greater the benefit KFR will be and impact to the world. Kechara is getting more and more international and prominent visitors.

  15. Low ksjc on Nov 3, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche,for being so compassionate to present there at KFR to conceptualize and to hasten the development of the project.We are sure every inch of the land there had been blessed by your presence there.
    I have been there in the past but WOW ! so much had been done since then.We can not deny that JP have put in a lot of effort for the development of KFR. thank you JP.
    May the KFR be completed soon to benefit and bless those who set foot on the land there !

  16. Lim Han Nee on Nov 2, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    It is exciting to watch the fast pace progress in the building of Kechara Village and KFR. It’s a day-to -day transformation of forest land into a lovely place of retreat. Everyday, as we receive updates , we see how the whole of Kechara is getting involved to shape the vision, and Rinpoche is there in the center of it all, hands on , and inspiring everyone .

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  17. Adrian Cho on Nov 2, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Rejoice for everyone that visited KFR. It is very excited, that KFR will gonna finish build up coming soon 🙂 KFR definitely is a very beautiful place. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post and all the nice pictures.

  18. Davin on Nov 1, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Wow.. what a wonderful journey to KFR. Rejoice for all of the visitors. I am really glad to see everybody is working hard for KFR to manifest and this will bring benefits to many others.

  19. AdelineTan on Nov 1, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    It is very exciting to see the work in KFR is progressing well and fast since i last visited there with the Melaka sturdy group to offer butter lamps about 4 months ago,and i am looking forward to visit KFR again this Saturday to do some work there.

  20. tenzin llhamo on Nov 1, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    It was a fun day! I had so much fun there with other Kecharians. JP did an excellent job explaining about the development in KFR. The last time I went there, I had to stand outside looking in. This time, everything changed and the progress was amazing! And everyday we get updates and pictures on this blog. Isn’t it wonderful! Even though we are not there, we can see and be in the know. Thank you everyone who did so much… Keep up the good ‘work’! Can’t wait to be there and help!

  21. Han on Nov 1, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Its amazing to see so much progress in KFR In such a short period, like Beng Kooi said
    “the moment Rinpoche stepped into his cabin at KFR, a buzz of activity followed. What you see in the picture above is merely the tip of the iceberg that is works in progress at KFR.”

    After visits KFR, its time to get together to volunteer, working towards this wonderful project. Its time to come out from our comfort zone and get our hands dirty.

    Thank you Rinpoche, KFR team & Ladrang team speed up the manifestation of Kechara Forest Retreat!

  22. Janice Kwok on Oct 31, 2012 at 8:25 am

    A privilege to see Pabongka Rinpoche statue and the auspicious signs manifesting everywhere is heartwarming. Thank you Rinpoche for taking the lead, directing the plans and what needs to be done. A place where everyone can call home when the first phase is completed.

  23. Sheryl KH (JB) on Oct 31, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Rinpoche has gone through much hardship and so when he said that the current condition in KFR land is very inconvenient I have no doubt about it. Nevetheless, Rinpoche kindly stays there to ensure that the work will move on fast and accurately.

    Rinpoche has only one wish that is to bring up KFR quick, so that more people can benefit from it.

    With the energy that Rinpoche brings to KFR land and the dedication of all participants, KFR will manifest surely. We just need to devote ourselves into this project so that it can manifest swiftly. And with this, Rinpoche’s wish will be fulfilled.

  24. Seng Aun on Oct 30, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    What a glorious sight! So many people coming together for a historic purpose, the manifestation of Kechara Forest Retreat and Kechara Village. A holistic retreat for spiritual practitioners and a place where people can find peace and seek blessings from the Buddhas.

    A big thank you and huge applause to Rinpoche and those who work so tirelessly towards the development of this wonderful project.

  25. deborah on Oct 30, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    The progress and growth at KFR is remarkable, better than a number of commercial developments. Well done to everyone who chipped in.

  26. patsy on Oct 30, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Since that day until now, there has been much more work done and so much progress as we can see daily from the photos updated frequently. KFR will benefit many and we should put all our effort to help towards this project, may it be raising funds or volunteering. It will be tremendous benefits for us to collect merits and be a part of KFR

  27. Alan Chan ( KHJB ) on Oct 30, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    I am very exciting to see the progress of KFR. Thank you Tsem Rinpoche leading all the way to manifest of KFR , Thank you all of kecharians effort , it will really very benefited to many people once it is up.

  28. Cynthia Ng on Oct 30, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Thank you JP and team put in effort and make sure volunteers and staffs understand whole KFR development and this make everyone more cleared and I can see everyone was very HAPPY!

    Is very fortunate to see the precious Pabongka Rinpoche statue, Vajrayogini text and a crystal stupa. I am very grateful that i have the chances contribute my little effort towards KFR project.

    Rejoice for everyone especially guests from oversea.

    Wish KFR manifest swiftly!

  29. judy lam on Oct 30, 2012 at 7:49 am

    The hard work, commitment, dedication and every detail that goes into the construction of KFR are shown on the faces of these people in the photographs. With Rinpoche’s blessings and the hard work of Kecharians, may KFR be a landmark that Kecharians are proud of and make an impact on the Malaysia map!

  30. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 30, 2012 at 2:16 am

    This is really a wonderful trip, JP explains and bring us walk through the whole area to tell us what is the planning next. Kechara Village has decided to move to the KFR Land from the initial place, and guess what? Rinpoche said KFR is the place for others, so he only wanted cabins in KV will be good enough, Rinpoche never wanted anything luxury for himself but he said the Gompa must be very beautifully done because it is for others. He want the public to have a comfortable place to pray and meditate.

  31. Darren Kechara Paradise on Oct 30, 2012 at 1:53 am

    Am happy to see the KFR pictures, everything is going very fast. May the works in KFR manifest swiftly. OM Tare Tuttare Ture Soha

  32. Jessica Yap on Oct 29, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    How beautiful KFR land is! I love how the green surrounds the entire area. Can’t wait for KFR to be completed and spend my weekends/holidays there doing retreats or attending meditation classes. Whatever it is, I’m certain that I want to be part of it! And i will make sure my family and friends would be there by helping them to create a cause for them.

    Without Rinpoche, all these wouldn’t be possible. Thank you very, very much, Rinpoche. Your compassion leaves me speechless as always.

  33. Pastor Chia on Oct 29, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Our KFR tour is fun and exciting by listening Liaison JP Thong explaining to us. Many great plan has been though out at KFR land. The most important is new ladrang will be build at the hill surrounding by a lot of tree.

    For pass 2 week, many progress after the earthwork started. Rinpoche, KFR team and ladrang team working very hard oversee the progress and update all the picture at the blog.

    Building KFR need a lot of volunteer work to plan the grass and flower, copping wood to burn to repel the insert and mosquito. I was manage stayed over night after the tour and volunteer to help for the next day. It is great experience volunteering at KFR. Join us fast! Don’t me left out.

  34. Mei Fong on Oct 29, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    I am super duper happy with all the progress on KFR up until now.
    The first time when i was there till this very blog post with an overall picture of the place looks superbly different. Certain parts are not even recognizable anymore compared to what it was previously.
    I thank all who have put in so much help and effort to get this place up and going. May this place continue to grow and be up for the benefits of many.

  35. janice Kwok on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    I am happy and excited to see development in KFR since my last visit. Even much more humbling and inspiring is Rinpoche staying there and directing the work that needs to be done. To know the Buddhas are blessing the development of this project is inspiring for all of us, from the fact that it didnt rain as hard as in the city is a testament to this.

  36. KYC on Oct 29, 2012 at 5:33 am

    From the pictures, it can be seen that a lot of progress has been made to clear the land for building and landscaping. I’m looking forward to the exciting activities that will be organised there, like meditation, teachings, and pujas complete with long horns etc. Meanwhile, we have to work very hard to raise funds and help with the development of this great project which will bring benefits to many people.

  37. wei theng on Oct 29, 2012 at 3:00 am

    It’s exciting to see the progress of KFR. With the showing of so many auspicious signs, we should work harder to get it up ASAP as it will really very benefited to many people once it is up.
    Thanks KIM for recording the video that people who are not around that day also can learn about the plan, the new development and the teachings.

  38. Angelshooi on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:29 am

    Thank You Rinpoche, JP and Tsem ladrang for arranging the tour to KFR. JP has done a good job, explained very well about the future development of KV and KFR.

    It was a wonderful trip, and get together with our Kecharians and visitors.

    • Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:07 am

      It is said that wherever the Lama goes, that’s where the Ladrang is. And sure enough, the moment Rinpoche stepped into his cabin at KFR, a buzz of activity followed. What you see in the picture above is merely the tip of the iceberg that is works in progress at KFR.

      In just the past 2 days, much gardening and planting has taken place, and a large group of students enthusiastically started building the concrete foundation of our caretaker’s new home.

      However, back to the topic – during the tour, what really stuck out for most of the crowd were the auspicious signs that have been happening ever since we found the land that was to be KFR. From a dream of the exact landscape when rinpoche was a child, to auspicious drizzles of rain, to a postcard of the exact landscape from an unknown Mongolian monk at Losar, to birds appear etc, the coincidences that have been happening are all traditional Tibetan signs of something very special that will happen at KFR.

      Do raise your hands to volunteer at KFR while there is still opportunity. The merits you will collect are unimaginable.

  39. Adrian Chow on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:17 am

    I can’t thank you enough Tsem Rinpoche to be there personally supervising the progress. It is very exciting to see KFR are slowly coming into place, although there are a lot more work to be done but at least it is moving bit by bit. And also thank you JP for taking ownership of this project which will benefit a lot more people in the near future.

    Thank you Rinpoche again and all the volunteers so far. We are very fortunate to have you as our Guru.

  40. Cynthia Lee on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:15 am

    It was surprising to see so much work was done on the KFR land in such a short period of time. It was raining for the past few days, but that day was perfect for the tour with no rain, no sun and best of all no mosquitos! The day ended with Rinpoche sharing the plans of KFR and the story of Findhorn Foundation. What is really interesting was the story Rinpoche told about the benefits of breathing and walking meditation. I look forward to doing this in KFR in future. It will help us look deep into ourselves very much.

  41. Erickksiow on Oct 28, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Rejoice for all visitors to KFR, Thank You to Rinpoche for giving a good chances to everyone of us. ( Including to Build KFR ), Much appreciate Rinpoche care of us in this lifetime and future future lifetime.

    with fold hands : Erickksiow

  42. Helena Chin on Oct 28, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    It was an awesome trip to KFR and seeing the land are being flatten and cleared for KFR project. JP was being a great host for explaining to us about the project and tour us around KFR. I rally can’t wait to see KFR manifest 🙂 it will benefit so many and I’m sure lots of Rinpoche’s overseas students and friends will visit KFR and do their retreat here 🙂
    I am very excited about the meditations that Rinpoche had mentioned about that night, KFR will have the breathing meditation, sitting meditation, and many more….hehe.
    Love to see there are more and more volunteers helping and those happy face.

  43. Sharon Saw on Oct 28, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Thank you to the Tsem ladrang staff for organising the tour. After walking around the site, it is easier to envision what will be built where, though since the tour, the plans have been refined and in future, i am sure they will continue to be refined.. Rinpoche is very passionate and hands on in KFR but KFR is not for Rinpoche but for all those who will gain merits in contributing effort and funds towards this project, and for all those who will benefit from this sanctuary in future. We are very fortunate to be part of this historic development, thank you Rinpoche!

  44. sweekeong on Oct 28, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and JP for taking the time to explain and update us all on Kechara Forest Retreat and Kechara Village. To build this place we need people who are passionate about this project, explain to the public, to spend time doing work and willing to put up with inconveniences in order to make progress. This place will become a place for people destress in future.

  45. adeline woon on Oct 28, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Rinpoche has shown so much love and care by explaining clearly what the plans are for KFR. It is indeed very exciting for Malaysia to have our very own Findhorn! Living in the nature, with the nature is the nature of our lives. Don’t wait until it is built and enjoy the facilities, because you might not have the chance to. Come join in and be part of this wonderful project!

  46. Jace Chong on Oct 28, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    What a wonderful tour led by JP and Rinpoche’s explanation to the expansion of KFR adds to the excitement!

    I am really glad to see everybody is working hard for this project as it will bring benefits to others for generations.

    Kechara is spreading the positive energy out from city to jungle, bring people back to the basic, and find the inner peace. I really like the idea of a place away from the hustle and bustle.

    We must work extra extra hard, to get this up!

    Rinpoche shared his vision and plans of Kechara Village on KFR land in this video. I like the part when he said there will be monks to teach us how to do the traditional ‘long horn’ in KFR that will sound like elephants in the jungle, even if we don’t have them there (yet).

    And this is the link (http://www.findhorn.org/aboutus/ecovillage/education/#.UIzuKNeGU3I) to the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, of which Rinpoche has plans for in K. Village. This is so exciting to be able to spend a weekend in KFR to learn and share with friends and family members.

    Since that day of the KFR land tour, more works have been done and many more will be going on as Kechara Village needs to be up and about ASAP before the torrential monsoon season starts in November.

    There has been alot of progress work done on KFR since. Photo updates are put up almost hourly by those at KFR, updating everyone of the progress so that we are kept abreast. Don’t forget to scroll all the way down of this page to KECHARA FOREST RETREAT PROGRESS UPDATES. See for yourself! Or better still, see you at KFR!

  50. Irene on Oct 28, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I am excited to see the plan and progress at KFR. It was a fantastic tour of KFR and an important evening with Rinpoche. Surely a day to remember forever.

    • Pastor Susan on Nov 2, 2012 at 7:37 pm

      Yes it was very exciting to see the progress and plans on KFR. The plans are still evolving and the hard working team sure is doing a fantastic job. Thank you Irene for providing food daily for all the people in KFR. it’s really a great help and contribution to KFR’s project.

  51. Lester on Oct 28, 2012 at 8:47 am

    Very impressive, very inspiring. Malaysians are indeed fortunate to have the retreat site on their land. My homage to the Rinpoche, JP and every single worker for the project!

  52. Lim (KH JB) on Oct 28, 2012 at 7:24 am

    Rejoice for all visitors to KFR, especially those from Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Nepal and England! Thanks JP that take ownership to help Rinpoche to built and committed 80% of his time will be in the forest.

    I bow down with fold hands to Rinpoche that lead a example to living in forest and to make sure the things all done in KFR. We will make our efforts as in your instructions in video as much possible to let KFR manifest as soon possible. Thanks Rinpoche for the advises for us in video.

    • lewkwanleng on Oct 29, 2012 at 11:32 pm

      Lim, I think JP already committed 100% of the time there 🙂 I have been going to KFR quite frequently lately and things are really progressing fast, thanks to the Lama who dedicated so much to the Dharma. As a student, I need to work extra hard too.

      I know JB is quite far, but I hope to see a HUGE group of people from JB to participate in this very special projects more often. As Rinpoche said , we need a lot of resources (talents, money, etc) to get KFR up, and Rinpoche keep saying, KFR is for all of us!!

      And when you are in KFR, don’t forget to take a lot of pictures 🙂

    Wow what a great day …..the historic first Kalachakra initiation been held publicly in Tibet, China in the last 50 years. For most by H H the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu. Many highly attained masters and incarnated lamas and teachers and more than hundred thousand over monks and nuns attended this auspicious event. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us all. So many of them it’s a blessing for them. With so many attending this event has proves that he is indeed the unmistaken incarnation as he is claimed by some as false and a fake Panchen Lama.
    With Panchen Lama as a spiritual leader, his influence made a huge impact on the Tibetans which is on the rise, this would be wonderful. In no time they might accept Dorje Shugden’s practice. Interesting read and blessing been able to see those beautiful pictures.
    Thank You Pastor David Lai for sharing.

    Arjia Rinpoche, one of the most important religious leaders to escape Tibet since the Dalai Lama fled into exile. A close friend of HH Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama . At the age of two, he was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of the father of Tsongkhapa who is the founder of the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche has spoken openly about unity and harmony in the community during the 30th Anniversary Commemoration of HH the 10th Panchen Lama’s Maha-Parinirvana. He has advised the Tibetans to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be discriminated just because of differences basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. Dorje Shugden as made a scapegoat by the Tibetan leadership for too long . Its time someone like Arjia Rinpoche or more people to speck up for the sake of world peace and harmony. Wonderful and simple speech yet clearly he spoke bravely on fulfilling the Panchen Lama’s wishes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Arjia Rinpoche.

    To be living in such a beautiful house and nice surrounding would be really really nice! Looking at the pictures above, it makes me think of Enchanted Forest in KFR. Nature gives us all. This harmonious balance makes our souls happy.
    Houses like this are not only good for living in but working in as well. I would love to work in a environment like this. I’m sure I will be able to think better and work better.Thank you for the good article.

    American basketball legend Stephon Marbury has played 13 years in the NBA . Been professional basketball the former NBA superstar , looked to the world of Chinese basketball. Having migrated there he brought the Chinese team to national victory, winning three Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. Marbury applied for and received a Chinese “green card”, as he been popular inspiring players ,bringing the whole team a positive and fighting spirit to victory. He is the fifth American basketball player to receive a green card in China. After all not easy to apply one as a foreigner . He also earned the nickname Commissar Ma for his role as a mentor to the teammates and younger players while playing in China. Wow…China immortalised Marbury with an arena statue, and got him a postage stamp of him. That’s wonderful, as they appreciate of what he has done for China.

    All religions share a similar message of peace and tolerance despite their differences. In the history of faith, there are so many beautiful and inspiring thoughts about creating peace and harmony among communities. We should help out to the poor or homeless regardless of race and of religion. Those Buddhist monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka did a good job, in accord to Buddhist teachings. They gave out foods to the poor Muslims during Ramadan the Muslim fasting months. Looking at the pictures tells all. A wonderful way helping the hundreds poor people in the streets . That’s should be the way , well a rare example of religious harmony . Helping and giving are human strengths and weapons against the many arbitrary and malevolent dark forces that plague human existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Religion and politics are two of the hardest things to talk about. Living in a country , we should be given religious freedom to choose what we want to pray. But it not mean we are spy of that country. Disappointed the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) accuses Dorje Shugden practitioners as Chinese agents just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche has been accused by the CTA . They said that said Rinpoche was a spy and an agent paid by China. All these were definite not true at all. Rinpoche had received the Dorje Shugden’s practice 30 years ago, been passed down from Rinpoche’s Guru. Many high lamas have been practising Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years, it is ridiculous to say they were Chinese spies too. All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness. But sad the CTA ,having a fuss over it , and has created disharmony among Buddhist practitioners. It’s a matter of choice we choose to pray nothing political related to China. Just because we are Chinese , we are paid by the China , we are Chinese spies, that’s does not made sense at all. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need harmony. Hatred and conflict are often rooted in differences between people of different races and religions. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    An agreement for living together by mutual consent is a marriage vow . As a similar line of thought, we believe all actual facts and in reality how and why Dorje Shugden arosed. Dorje Shugden arosed as our enlightened Dharma Protector as promised to protects the Dharma teachings. It’s a commitment between Dorje Shugden and Gelugpa lineage for more then 400 years, still going stronger despite all those lies , controversy the Tibetan Leadership trying to create. The Tibetan Leadership is trying to break this strong relationship with all the allegations on Dorje Shugden. Many highly attained lamas and masters had propitiated for Dorje Shugden for years . They cannot be wrong in their practice after all. Dorje Shugde is not a devil or spirits as claimed by some. HH Dalai Lama already said its does not harm and we can practice. With the recent speech in India at Bodhgaya on 2nd January 2020, HH dalai Lama also said that if people wish to practise Dorje Shugden as a birth deity or land god (Tibetan: kye lha yul lha), THAT WOULD BE FINE.
    Thank you Seow Choong Liang for the wonderful analogy to understand better.

    Buddhist Temples of Siem Reap , Cambodia is amazing filled with incredible architecture, Khmer Culture. The beautiful temples in Siem Reap is a must-see place when visiting. Buddhist Temples in Siem Reap each year attracted millions of visitors, especially those in the expansive Angkor Archeological Park. Well listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992, there are about 50 Buddhist and Hindu temples dating back to the 12th century within its grounds. Simply amazing to see but I have not been there yet. Would wish to see for myself those beautiful ancient architectural temples.
    Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words. So many Buddhist temples to visit .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you, Pastor Shin, for this inspiring article. It is inspiring to read the biography of George Roerich a man of the highest spiritual harmony in 20th century Tibetologist. He is one of the greatest orientalists, linguists, and encyclopedists of the century. Inspiring of a man who could speak fluently more than 30 European and Asian languages and dialects . He was a brilliant expert in Eastern culture, religion and philosophy , having spent more than 35 years abroad living in India, Mongolia ,Tibet and . As a distinguished encyclopedic-scientist, he was well known in many countries around the world. His incredible work of thangkas paintings which he authored at the tender age of only 23 and books remained a legacy.

    Very rare and precious video , to see how much affection between our Lama and Dorje Shugden was. Its not planned and of a sudden , during Rinpoche visit to that monastery and hotel, Dorje Shugden taking trance . According to the practices of Tibetan Buddhism, there are several ways to induce the trance state including dancing and music. But this was different as Rinpoche was at the monastery, a monk sudden went into trance . In the hotel an oracle monk-in-training took spontaneous trance too. While in trance, Dorje Shugden suddenly entered the oracle-monk in both occasion. Its a blessing able to see the oracles from the video.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this sharing .

    Beautiful Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, built in 1679, is the largest Gelug Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. Known as little Potala to many locals and tourist. Well this magnificent group builidngs of the monastery is so simply amazing. The main structure built in Tibetan style has a gold-covered copper roof similar to the one at the Potala Monastery in Lhasa. I was there few years back , looking at it is a blessing. It looks like a castle, a walled complex with group buildings including living quarters for monks and high lamas. I was so fortunate when I was there the monks were doing prayers . Listening to the prayers , with joy then in a tranquil place to dwell my soul.Offered some offerings to those beautiful Buddhas statues. Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, a hot destination in Yunnan, have been attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. A place worthy visiting and going on pilgrimage.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Came across this wonderful post of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’ precious teaching collections . Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a highly attained master of the Gelug tradition. He was famous as a sharp analyst and master of philosophical debate, as well as a powerful Tantric practitioner. He had impeccable knowledge of all rituals, art and science. After retiring , Kyabje Zong travelled intensively to the West and embarked on a highly inspiring teaching tour to many countries such as US, Canada , Europe countries and so forth. At the time of writing this havn’t not watch and read all yet. I have bookmarked this post and will read it time from time to understand better. All i can say it rare and precious collections.

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
