Chariots of the Gods

Here is another one of my favourite videos. Before the videos, it was the best selling book!

I read this book decades ago several times and it really ‘made sense’ to me. I loved the book and I loved this documentary based on the book. I remember being in my bedroom laying down on my bed decades back as a kid, and head rested on a double pillow voraciously reading. Mom and dad were out for the afternoon, and I would be on my own to read!! Pure heaven I used to think!!

I read about Buddhism, the Buddhist saints, their writings, mysteries, Bigfoot, UFOs… lazy New Jersey summers of reading. Or in the winter when it would snow, and you are trapped indoors, what’s better than reading? Especially if there was a snowstorm, and NO SCHOOL THAT DAY!!!!! Yes!!! No School! I would read, paint, chant, meditate, memorise mantras! Then read again!

I love the evidence, theories, photos and research that has been put into this incredible video. Although made decades ago, it is still very watchable I feel. I love the many paintings ‘from the bible’ which actually if you look at it carefully really does look like alien crafts. Totally believable. Watch carefully and several times to understand the enormity of the theories propounded.

Biography of Erich von Däniken

Erich Von Däniken is a writer best known as an ardent proponent of the “Ancient Astronaut” hypothesis of life on Earth. His 40 books have been translated into 32 languages and sold over 63 million copies, bringing the theory of “paleo-contact” between humans and aliens into the mainstream. This theory holds that during the earliest evolutionary periods of humanity, intelligent extra-terrestrial beings visited our planet. Due to contact with these aliens, our paleolithic forefathers were influenced to create culture, technologies and even systems of religions. Staunch proponents even believe that it was in fact these aliens that created some of the world’s oldest and mysterious monuments such as the Moai stone heads of Eastern Island or the Pyramids of Egypt.

ChariotsOfTheGods007

Erich Anton Paul von Däniken was born in 1935 in Zofingen, northern Switzerland. His Swiss Roman Catholic upbringing was unremarkable but for the fact that he challenged the Church’s views on Creationism. It was in his school days at Saint-Michel International Catholic School in Fribourg that he developed a keen interest in astronomy and UFOs.

As a boy, Von Däniken spent much of his free time reading about ancient texts and unsolved archaeological mysteries. However, his earliest writings were on his other passion, gastronomy.

The future bestselling author had a somewhat chequered start to adulthood. At 19, he received a four-month suspended sentence for theft. He left Switzerland and lived in Egypt for a time. The mysteries of the ancient Egyptians would come to feature heavily in his future works.

Von Däniken’s first foray into writing about the unexplained came in December 1964. His article, Hatten unsere Vorfahren Besuch aus dem Weltraum? (Did our Ancestors Receive Visitors from Space?) appeared in the German-Canadian periodical Der Nordwesten.

Unfortunately, Von Däniken’s writing career hit a speed-bump. He was involved in an Egyptian jewellery deal that resulted in a nine-month sentence for fraud and embezzlement in Switzerland.

After his release, Von Däniken found work as a hotel manager. He worked on his first book at night after guests had retired. Released in April 1968, it was titled Erinnerungen an die Zukunft (Memories of the Future).

ChariotsOfTheGods008

The book was a runaway success but Von Däniken’s legal troubles continued. In November 1968, just as his star as an author was rising, Von Däniken was again convicted of fraud. It was revealed in court that he had falsified records to obtain CH 12,000 in loans over 12 years, ostensibly to fund his research. (Von Däniken had fabricated his referrals but repaid the money in full with the proceeds from the book).

Meanwhile, Erinnerungen an die Zukunft had been translated into English and released as the legendary Chariots of the Gods?, cementing Von Däniken’s place as an international star.

The author’s wobbly life journey continued, though, with another conviction for fraud in February 1970. He was sentenced to three and a half years’ jail but released after serving one year. He wrote his second book, Gods from Outer Space while imprisoned and has kept a clean record since.

Von Däniken’s books have been turned into documentaries that have proven to be just as popular. He collaborated on a 3-part documentary based on his major works in the 1980s. In 1993, he hosted a 25-episode television series that was broadcast on German TV. The series’ high viewership kept it on a regular broadcast schedule twice a month for a whole year.

The MUS television network, ABC, also produced a documentary on Erich Von Däniken’s book and it was broadcast on German TV channel RTL. In 1998, the world’s largest public broadcaster, ARD produced a documentary on Von Däniken. British television station Twenty-Twenty made a biopic on his life in 2001. The program was screened on UK’s Channel 4 and has been telecast around the world since.

It is obvious that Von Däniken’s ideas, though not original, were presented in a way that engaged and fascinated the average person. It is perhaps how he capitalised on – and sensationalised – their findings that most infuriated (and continues to infuriate) the scientific community. They still largely look upon with scorn at the man whose efforts have given their otherwise esoteric research a spotlight in popular culture. Today, Von Däniken remains one of the most sought-after speakers on the UFO and Unexplained Mysteries circuit.

 

Chariots of the Gods?

Erich Von Däniken’s first book, Chariots of the Gods? is arguably also his most famous. Written originally in Von Däniken’s native German, it was released as Erinnerungen an die Zukunft: Ungelöste Rätsel der Vergangenheit (Memories of the Future: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past) in April 1968.

ChariotsOfTheGods009

However, the book went gone through a lengthy gestation as the response from publishers to the first draft was decidedly underwhelming. The manuscript had to be professionally rewritten by Wilhelm Leapfrogged (the pen name of the German screenwriter Wilhelm “Utz” Utermann) before finally getting a print run from the Econ-Verlag publishing house.

Following the phenomenal success of the German version, it was translated into English by Michael Heron and released as Chariots of the Gods?: Was God an Astronaut? in 1969. The book went on to mesmerise generations of readers and inspire intense debate about Man, his origins and the source of his knowledge.

 

The Evidence

The central premise of Chariots of the Gods? is that ancient civilisations from across the planet have left behind signs of anachronistic technology. Von Däniken pushes the hypothesis that this phenomenon is best and most easily explained by extra-terrestrial contact, where aliens shared their sophisticated knowledge with mankind.

Von Däniken’s views were not new, even when he wrote about them in the ‘60s. They were based on theories postulated by archaeologists and scientists that preceded him using much of the same evidence. This is not surprising – history and archaeology are replete with examples of objects and advancements in technology that seem not to fit their respective times.

ChariotsOfTheGods010

Among the most well-known of these are the ancient Egyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge and the Moai of Easter Island. Von Däniken also suggests that the medieval Piri Reis Map depicts the continents of Earth as seen from space and that the shapes made by the Nazca lines of Peru would only serve a purpose as signals to airborne craft.

The second thrust of Von Däniken’s arguments is that some ancient artwork depicts alien beings with whom ancient humans had direct contact. Others show fantastic machines with features and details similar to spacecraft of today.

Many of these artifacts and relics are religious in nature, leading him to conclude that the vastly superior technology of alien visitors led men to assume they were gods. To support this claim, Von Däniken points to the similarities between myths and legends separated by vast expanses of space and time that all speak of visitors from the heavens.

 

Dogu Figurines – Japan

ChariotsOfTheGods011a

Dogu statues were common in Japan during the Jomon period (14,000 – 300 BCE). They depict a short and stout figure wearing what Von Däniken interprets as protective goggles and breathing apparatus. In some, the arms do not end in hands but in two pincer-like claws similar to equipment used by modern astronauts to manipulate objects during spacewalks.

 

Vimana – India

ChariotsOfTheGods012

The ancient Hindu text of the Ramayan describes flying machines termed vimana that travelled “at great heights with the aid of quicksilver and a great propulsive wind”. They could “cover vast distances and could travel forwards, upwards and downwards”.

Von Däniken highlights this particular section as being reminiscent of the launch of a spacecraft:

At Rama’s behest the magnificent chariot rose up to a mountain of cloud with a tremendous din…

This description is similar to one found in the other Hindu epic, the Mahabharat:

Bheem flew with his vimana on an enormous ray which was as brilliant as the sun…

 

Spacecraft – Visoki Decani Monastery, Kosovo

ChariotsOfTheGod001

This depiction is from a fresco entitled “The Crucifixion” dating from 1350. It resembles a man inside a spaceship and flying above the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. They are in Kosovo Visoki Decani monastery, placed above the altar.

The church of the monastery was decorated with frescoes in the 14th century. The fresco appears to depict not one but two aerodynamic flying craft in the skies above the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Within each craft is a man manipulating some controls while flames emerge from the rear of their airborne vehicles.

 

Mayan Spacecraft – Palenque, Mexico

In the Mayan ruin site of Palenque, there is a Temple of Inscriptions, where the ancient Mayan ruler, Pakal, was buried. On his sarcophagus was engraved a picture of the dead king seated at the controls of a spaceship-like contraption, surrounded by flames.

In the Mayan ruin site of Palenque, there is a Temple of Inscriptions, where the ancient Mayan ruler, Pakal, was buried. On his sarcophagus was engraved a picture of the dead king seated at the controls of a spaceship-like contraption, surrounded by flames.

Perhaps the most compelling existing ancient image of spacecraft is contained within the Mayan ruins at Palenque in Mexico. Within a pyramid named the Temple of Inscriptions sits a monolithic stone slab 3.8 metres long and 2.2 metres wide that weighs over a ton. It covers the tomb of a ruler named Pakal who died in 683 CE.

Von Däniken and other ancient alien researchers believe it shows Pakal sitting at the controls of a spacecraft. A breathing apparatus is at his nose while his hands and one foot manipulate levers. Behind him, outside the craft are flames.

The knowledge of the ancient Mayans, particularly in their understanding of the passage of time, is striking. Could they have obtained their insight through aerial observation from the heavens?

 

Quimbaya Airplanes – Columbia

The Incan civilisation of South America left behind “ancient aeroplanes”, which are small golden figurines that closely resemble modern jet planes.

The Incan civilisation of South America left behind “ancient aeroplanes”, which are small golden figurines that closely resemble modern jet planes.

The golden “aeroplanes” left behind by the Quimbaya people of Columbia who lived between 1000 and 1500 CE are perhaps the most widespread and the most scientifically-sound examples of ancient technology. Approximately two centimetres in length, they were recovered from royal tombs.

There has always been an intense debate over whether they are replicas of aircraft or of insects. Researchers point out that while the Quimbaya depicted insects accurately, these artefacts are biologically impossible because of the upright tail fins and wings beneath the body – neither exist in nature.

The matter seems to have been resolved in Von Däniken’s favour when accurate models of the relics fitted with jet engines proved to be capable of stable flight, take-off and landing.

 

Ancient Astronauts – The Alps, Italy

These cryptic drawings known as petroglyphs was discovered in Italy. It appears to show two men wearing helmets with strange weapons.

These cryptic drawings known as petroglyphs was discovered in Italy. It appears to show two men wearing helmets with strange weapons.

Valcamonica is an area close to the central Alps in Italy. It is home to over 200,000 images drawn on rocks over 10,000 years ago. While most of the images are of mundane objects and animals, two humanoid figures pictured facing each other seem to represent something else entirely.

They each have been drawn with what seem to be transparent helmets within which their heads are visible. Just as cryptic are the objects that they hold in their hands which seem neither to be the weapons of the time nor anything else we can recognise. Von Däniken and others assert that they are holding advanced weapons.

 

Ancient Astronaut and others – The Nazca Lines, Peru

The Nazca lines in Peru, South America are known as geoglyphs or “ground drawings” and they are massive. They either run parallel or they form into over 300 different geometric patterns including 70 animal and plant shapes. Perhaps the most endearing and intriguing is an etching of a humanoid figure nicknamed “The Astronaut" as pictured here.

Perhaps the most endearing and intriguing is an etching of a humanoid figure nicknamed “The Astronaut” as pictured here.

The ancient geoglyphs of Nazca in Peru were created between 500 BCE and 500 CE. The smallest of them are about 370 metres long while the largest are over 1.1 kilometre across. The most common subjects are animals such as the hummingbird, spider, llama, jaguar and monkey and a human, but they also include trees and flowers.

However, the most striking is a figure dubbed “The Astronaut”. It depicts a humanoid figure with a hand raised, perhaps in greeting. No facial features are shown apart from two oversized eyes while the head is distinctly block-shaped. The figure’s feet are also chunky, reminiscent of the shoes worn by astronauts.

    Chariots of the Gods endures as proof that Earth has been visited repeatedly by advanced aliens from other worlds. Researchers has discovered ancient ruins, lost cities, spaceports, and a countless of hard scientific facts that point to fictional beings from outer space intervention in human history. The ground breaking classic film by Erich von Däniken that introduced the theory that ancient Earth established contact with aliens.
    Scientist and archeologist went searching for more evidence to support the findings. They even went through the excavation sites and the analysis of artefacts and others such as paintings on the caves . Most incredible of all, Scientist ‘s theory is that we are the descendants of these galactic pioneers. And also reveals the archeological discoveries that prove it that we are not alone.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharings.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing with us what constitute a good presentation of a debatable topic. Evidence of visitors from space had been recorded in many civilisation throughout history, it even appeared in the volumes in Tibetan Buddhism scriptures. The fiery chariots of the “Gods” in those ancient records resemble spacecraft by today’s standard. It leads me to feel that as mankind gain more knowledge of the wider horizon of living beings, we are getting closer to realising how small we actually are.

    None of my friends would dare to even reply or comment on any of the emails of ufo related Youtube shared with them. I suppose they worry someone might laugh at them and look at them from different angles.

    Watch these videos. The first video is the most outrageous claim with footage of alien in the Youtube by far. 1.5 billions year old ancient aliens and ship found on the dark side of the moon. Allegedly was explored in the 70s by Soviet/US. It is almost unbelievable till you watch how real the aliens look like and she really look like human.

    If the US government were to admit the truth, all the major God-centric religions that say God created men and Earth is the centre of the universe and we are the only intelligent beings created by God, will be have be thrown out.

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Many speculations about these beings and of course, when and what these ancients and even up until today have experienced have all been debatable subjects.
    One that I have heard repeated oft will be the condescending remark that the ancient Egyptians were not humans (given such massive intelligence existing in their past history) as compared to today’s generations which could not even ‘manage’ themselves.
    Then another assertion I heard amongst some Christians is that some of the visions of the old Prophets were near descriptions of alien lifeforms but interpreted as ‘angels’ and their own pecking order.
    Buddhist cosmology has also been an interesting topic of debate with some speculating that perhaps popular version with the 6 realms and all of its respective classes was not taught by the Buddha but later additions in order to pacify societies’ curiosity then and even now?
    And of course the famed government conspiracy theories…
    Thank You Rinpoche for the vids and sharing with us.

  9. May Ong on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    What peaked my curiosity is – why has Tsem Rinpoche been curious about UFOs, aliens and supernatural? Perhaps Rinpoche knows that beings are interconnected via minds and space. Aliens or UFOs may be presented to us in their weird form or formless because we have not seen them with our own eyes. But do they exist? That is the question asked here.
    There was archeological evidence to support the fact that UFOs have visited earth thousands of years ago but the government wishes to protect us from discovering the real truth. Are we really alone in the cosmic wilderness?

  10. David Lai on Jul 5, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    I love Chariots of the Gods too! I read the book many years ago because I found it in my dad’s collection of old books. Along with the believable theories propounded, there were many compelling photos of ancient sites from around the world to back up the hypotheses written within this book.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us your childhood interest and your friends. I am thoroughly amazed that Rinpoche could actually remember their complicated European names. I share similar childhood experience of liking the paranormal but none of neighbourhood friends and classmates are into these things.
    Perhaps, such inquisitive mind is typical of those interested in Buddhism as we are constantly curious about how our minds and our world exists and work. Heck! Buddha even did talked about other worlds and dimensions of existence. That’s what makes Buddhism so incredible and a fantastic spiritual tradition that transcends time, culture and even space! I know, how very Star Trek!

  11. Grace on Jul 1, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    Rinpoche,
    Thanks for posting these videos to share with us. I am currently loading/streaming them. I’m sure I will have many questions to ask after that as I always have questions in my head. I was also curious about these topics since young.

    Unfortunately in my neighborhood and with my friends I WAS THE ONLY ONE INTERESTED IN UFO’S. I was the only one interested in Bigfoot, and mysteries. I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it with. My step-parents didn’t have any clue what I was talking about. They were too busy living the American Dream (whatever that was).
    I would have enjoyed so much to have a group of friends or a club to discuss and ‘investigate’ deeper into all these mysteries.
    I had great neighborhood friends. I wonder what happened to them. We all lived on the same West 3rd Street in Howell, New Jersey.
    I had Pat Miskovic (Yugoslavian boy), Dawn Giordano (Italian girl), Greta Meirerhaufer (German girl), Ray Polovino (Yugoslavian Boy), Marc Reed (who lived on Hulses Corner Rd), Mira Polovino and Pat’s sister, Slavica Miskovic. We had great times. Marc didn’t join us, but I would hang out with him at his house, yard and with his siblings or bike ride to Six Flags Great Adventure and Turkey Swamp. I like Marc alot…he is a great guy and very nice fellow.
    I miss all the friends quite alot. I wish I was in closer contact with them and knew where they are. It’s like that movie ‘It’ where the kids are all grown up, but they have a pact and strong bond. They come back to their home town to meet up again to combat the supernatural clown. I like that movie because as kids they bonded and as adults, the bond was there.
    I wonder where Pat, Ray, Slavica, Greta, Dawn and Mira are now. We had such INCREDIBLE FUN SUMMERS. We’d play all day and night. Pat’s parents were Yugoslavian immigrants that lived across the street from us. Pat’s parents were very generous and fed us kids daily and plenty of 7-up. Pat had a big yard and garden. Was fun
    . Pat and I hung out almost everyday also.
    I really do miss all of them and can’t ever forget them. I hope they are ok…

    Dearest Rinpoche
    It was also my favourite book at 11 and it also made perfect sense to me. I was so excited that I shared it with like minded friends and we formed a club to discuss this including my teachers. I have not seen the movie and I thank you for sharing this and also for once against rekindling my Bodhimind.

    Sometimes when we are angry we tend to remember it for a period of time. This is not healthy and even bring negative impact to us. We are angry because we cannot forgive and let go of what has happened. Just imagine the the energy and time wasted when we are angry. Therefore, we should learn to accept, forgive and move on. Otherwise holding on to grudges will only bring unhappiness to our life.

    Whether they are animals or insects, they are still living beings. As they are not in the form that are able to learn dharma, we should make ways for them to be connected to dharma to help them in their future rebirth. Rinpoche has showed us many ways to care for them, as easy as feeding them and blowing mantra to them. Whatever the method, we just need to put effort and continue with the practise.

    I always admire the creativeness of artists as they are able to bring out their message and express their feelings in a piece of art. Lynda Bell is a great artist as all her art piece brings awareness to our environment, animals, kindness and compassion. Something that we need to keep reminding ourselves that we are all part of the world and therefore we should not abuse and love one another.

    It is not just about learning the meaning of being kind and compassion but to apply it to our daily life and towards everyone. Rinpoche gave us the clear example to practise kindness and compassion. These values should not have any differentiation on anyone due to their background, race, language and etc. Everyone should be treated the same. Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this article.

    It is so beautiful that someone can spend their life building such holy image to bless the people around, to plant seed of Buddha to others.To build such huge statue, it need a lot of patience and determination to complete it.
    This statue of Buddha in Hyderabad,India is just so breath taking and wonderful. It is amazing how amazing and wonderful this Buddha especially the picture when the sun is setting .Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful article.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
    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
