Criticize me

Oct 7, 2013 | Views: 2,050

I have been reviled, criticized and gossiped about due to my opinions, directions and spiritual practice. My appearance, speech, knowledge, background, Kechara, my students, friends, race, lineage all have been criticized or made fun of or told it’s wrong or bad or even harmful. You only hate what you really love. Even to what I wear and eat have been negatively commented!! Some people have even viciously criticized my lineage, my methods, my Gurus and my Monastery. They even tell me my Guru is wrong, bad and is not pure and so on. They can say what they like about my Guru but will NEVER sway my mind about my Guru. They shouldn’t sway you also about your Guru ever as it reflects you how firm you are and who you really are.

I have eyes and wisdom to see my Guru is the one for me and that is all that counts. I know what I need. They can also say I am following the wrong teachings or I am a false ‘prophet’. I have things written and said against me openly and secretly. Part and parcel of what I do. Entertaining to me that I am that important to them to say so much and write so much? The more you say the more important I become.  I’ve had adversity to what I am doing since very young till now. I am a favorite subject of gossip for some. I am sometimes surprised at the accusations against me that is not even remotely me or true. Some untruths and rumors about me being said at times are very interesting as it has some element of truth twisted into it to seem more authentic. Creative I must say. I do find some words about me interesting, some ridiculous, some hurtful and some baseless. But it’s just words. Emptiness.

People have cheated me. Lied to me. Turn around and forgotten all the good things they have received from me and only claimed the bad. Nothing is all bad. Some have been disloyal friends and disloyal students or associates. I have been surprised as some of the disloyalty is in the face of all the sincere circumstances I have afforded them. But it does not matter. I am not the only one who has suffered this. Everyone has and it’s made me wiser, stronger and more determined to be sharp and observe and be kind. I forgive those who have done this but I will also protect myself as and when necessary. I harbor no anger towards them but they know not what they do as the saying goes. I will survive and be better and grow. I will grow. They make me grow. Thank you.

But what is important is I keep a good motivation, keep developing my mind, keep improving my spiritual practice, work hard to be successful for benefiting others, keep up my meditations and keep improving. I will keep up my commitments with my Guru/lineage and respect all other lineages, teachers, students and people. I will achieve to be better person and never get tired of assisting others no matter what is said about me. Will work harder I promised myself and my Guru. Because in the end it was not about me and the people who criticized me, but between me and my conscience knowing I did my best to serve. I will keep relieving the sufferings of others as best I can in my small way and not be discouraged ever because I will win and I am a winner. A humble winner! I will win in order to have more to benefit others. I have my karma to experience and all this is the results of my karma and the blessings to help me to grow within. I realize this. I blame no one, but move on. In the end, those who hate you help you to grow and mature faster than those who love you I realize. Those who criticize you and put adversity in your way knowingly and unknowingly are the people to thank because your growth depended on the situations they presented to you which made you learn faster and become wise to the world. Don’t be angry at them, but think what it has done for you although painful at times. The pain comes from within and we need to grow out of the pain and learn to deal with pain the right way and not revenge. No one, Kings or beggars improved their situations without adversity and enemies. The more enemies we have means we have lived for what we believed in and we are willing to be honest to experience the good and the bad that comes from our convictions. At least I have convictions and results. At least I believed and have results.

My spiritual convictions, practice, teacher and teachings helped me so much. The teachings of the Buddha really is what made me wise up to so many painful experiences and learn. Not everyone will find my spiritual path suitable for them, but they can find theirs and that is fine. Everyone has their own spiritual path and that is wonderful. Some find it through experiences alone and that is great too.

But you know what the bottom line is? Whatever is said and done to me, I will keep doing what I am doing because I believe in it and myself. I forgive the detractors and I harbor no ill-will. I pray for all of them to gain happiness and success, because only in their happiness will they find peace. Without peace they keep blaming others. May I bring them that peace. May all have peace.  Om Mani Peme Hung

    A poem inspired by seeing a picture of my teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche…

    In the sport of correct views,
    all that is correct is just a view,
    without permanence or substance.
    As long as we hold onto views,
    our sufferings are gathered 
    to be experienced without end.

    Without the strong methods of emptiness
    and compassion, bereft of merit,
    we sink deeper without respite.
    To arise from this samsara is but
    a dreamscape on the deluded mind.
    Therefore seek the guru, who confers the yidam,
    hold your vows and fixate on liberation 
    free of new creations. Free of new experiences as 
    there are none. 

    ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    Whatever you do good or bad people will always have something negatives to say about you. Criticism is something we cannot avoid but can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing. Years back I was criticized, betrayed, cheated, people turning against me and feeling disappointed but as times goes by it made me stronger instead. Letting go and move on to the next chapter of my life. I can understand the situation when Rinpoche been criticised and how he feels about it. What Rinpoche experienced is far worse than mine and has indeed inspired many people . I am fortunate to have met Rinpoche who has motivate me to learn and practice Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your thoughts, experience and teachings in this article.

  6. Lin Mun on Feb 1, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching. It is really important to rely and trust our Guru in spiritual grow. You have to endure so much criticism even though your only motivation is to make us transform and learn dharma. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to learn dharma from Rinpoche. Thank you once again.

  7. Anne Ong on Feb 25, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    I have been through similar things as Rinpoche is going through, and I guess I am still going through it. I truly understand how Rinpoche feels. I have female friends who come to me when they needed help,and when they have got what they wanted,they just ignore the friendship. Be it whether they want a boyfriend,to patch up relationship with the boyfriend,or to join Kechara. I have learned to accept this as I understand its my own karma. There were also people who tried to pull me away from Dharma. But I was very fortunate that Rinpoche knew about it and asked Martin to let me know. Now I try to let those things pass and just keep my motivation to improve my Dharma work with social media.And bring more people to Dharma. Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing this article and giving me the chance to do Dharma work by helping with social media._/\_

  8. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 18, 2015 at 3:23 am

    I really appreciate reading posts like these because they show me that what I am doing is the right thing. Although whatever I have experienced TOTALLY pales in comparison to what Rinpoche has had to face, the fact Rinpoche is in the position he is in today – no anger, no bitterness – despite all of these experiences gives me the confidence that what Rinpoche is practising and how Rinpoche teaches us to deal with such negative experience does have positive results.

    When we focus on our guru, it has many benefits. The first is that the guru becomes an external focal point so that whatever negative talk you experience matters less, because you are thinking less about yourself. You are thinking less about how the talk hurts or impacts you. In simple terms, it hurts less when you focus on yourself less, because you’re focusing on your guru.

    Let’s get real, we are not Buddhas. So negative talk, criticism, being cheated and lied to, all of these do hurt. But when we have our guru, the hurt doesn’t stay around for as long because through our gurus, we are given reasons to move on and think about other things.

    Because you are less affected by negative talk, it results in greater stability in our practice in the sense we will not swayed by the talk of false friends, whether it’s positive or negative talk. False friends are those who appear to be on our side, but in reality are reinforcing and encouraging the aspects of us which generate more karma for us to suffer and remain in samsara.

    Then, using our lama as a focal point, we train ourselves in not transferring our frustrations from one unrelated situation to the next. In an ordinary level, when most of us are frustrated / angry / upset with something, we tend to let our emotions spill over from one event to the next. For example, if someone cuts us off in traffic and it angers us, when we step into the office, some of us may be very curt and rude with the first person we come across (even if the interaction with them is very neutral and mundane). Why? Because there is still leftover anger from the traffic incident.

    But if we have respect for our teachers, we will learn not to project our frustrations onto our teachers, regardless of how our teachers treat us and of whatever else happens around us. When we learn and practise this, we can transfer that skill to everyone else. So training in this way, we learn to create harmonious environments around us.

    So people talk about guru devotion being cultish and enslavement but I tend to err towards the opinion that they are uninformed. Even if we don’t go into the esoteric benefits of guru devotion, on a practical level using your lama as a focal point is very beneficial for our spiritual practice.

    I watched most of your videos coping with having moved from an American big city to a German village. I don’t feel I have handled it that well. Anyways, at the start of November 2014 I did a general search about you having heard many of your videos. I did find some gossip about you. I felt like having heard other stuff you have said had prepared me for at least some of the gossip. I hear you are in California. I’m sorry if this is just general and around. Year 5 in a German village and having learned the language, sung with them and offered a little volunteer work on the yard work is nearly all the Christian version of “Dharma work” I have done. It has been tough. I found it easier to help both myself and others where I lived before. Now and then I gave to some of the beggars or something in the nearest city. Not much but managing to do more than nothing. Other times more a ritual or prayer type of thing. (insert self pity and the lack of it here).

    Rinpoche never feel disheartened your presence is what made Kechara now and Kechara helped me in so many ways that wasn’t present for me back then. Stay strong and healthy! ^^

  11. slching2 on Dec 7, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Gotta luv this so much!Thank you so much for your this amazing sharing, Rinpoche.
    Thank you! <3

    Take care, Rinpoche. All the best in everything that You perform. 🙂

  12. abby f on Nov 24, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for taking time to conclude, think and share with all of us of Your thoughts, experiences, feelings and teachings.

    What Rinpoche went through and going through now inspire many many people in many ways. Many have gone through and still going through such pain and they were/are just as lost as Rinpoche. But I am sure after they read it, they will think differently, at least the way they see the criticism towards them will be different. Even myself has benefited from what Rinpoche has shared above even though I didn’t really have so much of pain experiences in the past. But I change how I see the obstacles I have in front of my eyes and what Rinpoche wrote above make affirmation for my belief too.

    And I found one of the most fulfilling things in life is that we can use our own experience, no matter good or bad, to inspire people, to help them, to ease their pain, to calm their mind even for a second. We don’t have to destroy people’s lives due to our own pain.

    This is what I learned from this article.

    The world around us is like a shattered mirror, which reflects impure views that fester in the form of criticisms, anger, jealousy and hatred. It is our task to remember that we are a perfect flawless mirror that reflects the truth.

  14. Vinnie Tan on Nov 6, 2013 at 1:02 am

    We can never stop others from saying bad things about us, but what makes me believe in Rinpoche more is the results that Rinpoche has achieved despite what others has say.

    These people who has said so much negative things, they have not even achieved anything after all these years, but Rinpoche has done so much work that has proven them wrong so many times. These people continue to say negative things because they are jealous and afraid, they are not willing to achieve in another higher level, hence all these things happen.

    What inspires me most is Rinpoche’s attitude, and working harder so that these people will not be able to continue their rumours any longer.

  15. Low Khjb on Nov 2, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your precious sharing .You had been sincere in you thought and action .I believe your motivation is pure and it is solely for our positive spiritual development.
    The truth is a bitter pill to swallow but most of us would conveniently choose the easy way out by convincing our own self that false contentment is our primary objective in life.
    Keep up your good work. As for those who understand your true motivation and nature would support you .They will too develop a similar spirit of determination to pass the good word of Dharma and the true teaching to others in many years to come….

  16. guest on Oct 27, 2013 at 1:52 am

    Since you requested critique, here it is:
    1. You care about other beings, but not for yourself. You’re no different from others. Keeping balance is important. Being hostile towards self is as bad as being hostile towards other beings.
    2. You write on your site about all good things you’ve done to the people. Why you don’t write about bad things you did? Even smallest actions, which people call “not important”. It’d bring many good to you and other beings, as you’d be seen more like a human, transparent in your own actions. Additionally, you’d be aware of what things in yourself you have to correct, as actions of people hostile towards you could be essentially reactions on your unwise act(s).
    If I’d know you personally, I could criticize you accurately, because I’m basing only on materials you’ve posted on your site.
    Namaste.

    • guest on Nov 2, 2013 at 5:43 am

      I’ve read that Tibetans were taught to: “talk only good about others, and criticize only themselves”. It’s very wise, I hope that noone get offended by that post.

  17. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 23, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Better to make a stand for what we believe and trust, than living a lie. Living a life of lies is a life that has no meaning at all.

  18. Joy on Oct 21, 2013 at 2:02 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    To me it is very simple… once you have chosen your Guru. Stick to it through thick and thin. Chosing a Guru is far more sacred than choosing one’s wife or husband. So even if you think you cannot continue following your Guru for whatever reasons you deem is justifiable and call it quits, at least be honest and tell your Guru politely and do not be stupid and criticise your Guru because even if you don’t believe there is “karma”, well at least if you are wrong and ignorant and there is karma, you did not end up digging your hell hole bigger.

    The way I see it is for those who can criticise another, they actually recognise that bad trade/character in them too and hence recognise or think they recognise it in others. If they do not have that in them to begin with how on earth would they be able to point it out? That’s just common logic. People can criticise, but what is the motivation behind it is very important. Is it to help improve the other, are we skilled, how do we deliver the criticism? Or is the criticism out of anger, jealousy, insecurities and hatred. What is the real reason one is even criticising? To help or to harm?

    On the flip side, all famous, popular, good people are criticised, even Lord Buddha who had Devadata deceive him and tried to kill him, his own disciple trying to kill him! And still Lord Buddha showed us his compassion and forgiveness in him. So I am not surprised that this can happen to Rinpoche or anyone because this is samsara but what’s great is winners will be winners and truth will always prevail!

  19. wansan on Oct 20, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Thank You so much for sharing your thoughts and feelings. People can say whatever they want but will definitely not sway my mind of being devoted to my guru, Tsem Rinpoche.

    In this real world, everyone is just jealous of everyone else… But in the end, no matter what others say, if we get the results we wanted (with a good motivation), that’s all that it matters. If it benefits others and we are doing it in the positive way and good approach, then it doesn’t matter what others say about us, criticize us… the results is the prove to everything. Even to those who once said we couldn’t do it.

    I like how Rinpoche says “I will survive and be better and grow. I will grow. They make me grow….. Those who criticize you and put adversity in your way knowingly and unknowingly are the people to thank because your growth depended on the situations they presented to you which made you learn faster and become wise to the world. Don’t be angry at them, but think what it has done for you although painful at times.”

    Thank You Rinpoche _/\_

  20. AdelineTan on Oct 18, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Rumors are just rumors they will die off after a while because its baseless and the truth will reveal by itself finally. I like the way who Rinpoche is, very compassionate, wise and holds His vows very well.Always have good motivations to help others without agenda. Rinpoche shows a good example of Guru devotion to all his gurus and we all should practice this too. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your thoughts with us.

  21. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Oct 14, 2013 at 9:35 am

    From the first day i met Rinpoche in year 2003 until now, i always felt that how lucky am i to have such great merits to be able meet Rinpoche , able to receive his teaching and guideline.Rinpoche is sincere, caring , compassionate to every beings. This is NO doubt he always care for other rather than thinking himself.It was impress me that Rinpoche take all the criticizes as motivation to push himself ever work harder, serve more..even wishing those people can find peace on them. This is really a good example for reaction of ” 8 versa of though”.

    I feel like the text above, is directed to me also..
    I didn’t criticize you, but i have made one disrespectful joke on the blog chat, though not destructive or criticism..(i even felt like it was positive)
    I really humbly respect you, and think positive of you
    Sorry, if it caused you negative thoughts

  26. Li Kim on Oct 13, 2013 at 4:36 am

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for sharing your inner thoughts. I thank you for showing me the true meaning of compassion. I would go ballistic when people speak badly, ridicule and insult my loved ones. But I now see how even in the worse moments Rinpoche turns it to strength and determination to continue. I know that Rinpoche is hurt by the many insults hurled at Rinpoche directly or indirectly. I am so sorry and I feel the hurt. yet Rinpoche is still compassionate. Thank you for this deep teaching in your post here. it will most definitely take me more time to develop this deep compassion especially with adversaries. But because of Rinpoche I can start a little now.

  27. Joe Hamilton on Oct 13, 2013 at 4:17 am

  28. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 12, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Rinpoche has given a powerful teaching on how to turn seeming defeat into a victory and a triumph over others’ criticism and verbal abuse of one.

    I love the following words of Rinpoche:” I will keep relieving the suffering of others as best I can in my small way and not be discouraged ever because I will win…..I will win in order to benefit others”.This is a triumph of compassion over self-cherishing and self-centricism.

    Again:”I do find some words(of criticism)about me interesting, some ridiculous, some hurtful and some baseless. But it’s
    just words. Emptiness”.

    It is said, “The only way the Buddhas can guide us to enlightenment is by manifesting to us as Gurus in ordinary forms, which means that have faults, experiencing sufferings of birth, old age, sickness and death, make mistakes in their actions, engage in negative karma.” Our ordunary mind is so deluded or obscured that we don’t have thwe karma to see an aspect without faults. It is said that our mind isnt pure enough to see any aspects, which defined as one having faults because ther is no other way to guide us directly. They have to maifest as something that we can see that accords pricisely with the level of our mind, so they can give us direct guidance through teachings, advice or other appropiate methods. This ordinary aspect is the only way thatcan give us direct guidance which can prevent us from being born in the lower realms, liberate us fromsamsara and even lower nirvana. It is said that this present ordinary aspect is the only one that can directly guide us to enlightment, the most precious in our life! Our precious Guru is unimaginarily kind to manifest inthis ordinary form, having faults which accord exactly with the level of our impure mind. But, the conclusion that seeing our Guru as ordinary does not mean that he or she is in fact ordinary! This present ordinary aspect is the only way that can directly guide us to enlightment! Om mani Padme Hum.

    It is awful to see a person who believes they are on a spiritual path to seek peace and happiness, yet are not able to respect the beliefs and practices of another even when with similarities of beliefs. Find one practice that suits you but do not have to put down others for what they believe in because there truly is no right and only way in religion. We need to respect, understand and be compassionate of one anothers beliefs and practices. Don’t insult them for their beliefs it only makes you look worse of a person who claims to be religious.

    I pray that Rinpoche continues to live long and benefit even more people whether small or not it still counts and I know Rinpoche does his best and never stops believing and keeping his promise to his Guru. Rinpoche has already benefited so many sentient beings it be dogs and cats to human beings, Rinpoche has tirelessly continued to be compassionate despite all the harsh words has been said directly and indirectly to him. I truly respect Rinpoche for not letting it affect him, showing everyone the true potential in themselves that they too can benefit everyone around them and still not be affected by criticism.

    Please stop only remembering the bad but remember all that was good from Rinpoche.

    I have been through a lot of this too. This gives me strength to read this. I think there is a lot of evil in the world now, it’s really scary. But light always pierces the darkness so keep your head up.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    i feel i am very fortunate to have heard and received your teachings with Dharma. i can observed i have changed myself into a better person compared to my previous negative personality and bad characters 3 years ago. i am truly grateful and would like to sincerely say a big Thank You for giving tremendous love, care, much patience, great wisdom and many Buddha’s teaching in English version through the Dharma you have provided through this blog and you tubes video. i am sure i will still continue to suffer more within my own delusion, wrong views, negativity and attachmentif i have never met Dharma through the teachings from Rinpoche.

  37. AL on Oct 8, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    People seems to have many critics of how you practice and teach the dharma however I felt your style was good enough for busy people. However in your recent post you mention that you just wanted 108 students to be by your side, how about those other who till this day still support and respect you silently which cannot make it to the 108 students? I personally have benefited a lot from your teaching and the gifts that you give me, however due to the reasons I did not want to join as full time Kechara, I was nicely kick off. Now I am left hanging and no where to go, because I wasn’t welcome in Kechara anymore. Even when others who have left Kechara keep talking bad things about you, I still believe you as who you are and what you were doing was right. I am sorry Rinpoche I just have to pour out on your blog here because I have no other ways I could reach you. Because I am not a wealthy person or a Dato which can have a private audience with you… Maybe is my Karma that unable me to… What I can promise you now is just to be a good person because

    Thank You

      Dear Al,

      Many of my teachings are abundant on this blog and internet. You can easily learn so much from the internet. 🙂
      If you wish to see me, then what is your name and location?
      Be open with who you are and then we can perhaps talk.

      Much greetings to you and may you practice what you have learnt already and find enlightenment. TR

  38. Jill Yam on Oct 7, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    Some say that the true test of the strength of faith is when in face of adversities and doubts. I remember Rinpoche once taught something along the line that ‘ultimately, we should welcome and embrace hardships as obstacles are when we can apply what we have learnt. If everything is well and smooth sailing, how would there be true practice of patience and the virtues’ Thank you Rinpoche!

  39. Kelvin Yong on Oct 7, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    I have heard so many accusations about my Rinpoche which arises from their selfish and arrogant min. They even try to sway me away from my spiritual path and yet Rinpoche is always kind enough to forgive them and will be kind to them.
    The most important thing is I know exactly what I want and my guru is the one and only one guru that I should have. I’m sorry Rinpoche for having you to be so tenacious and kind to teach a foolish student like me.

    With folded hands,
    OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI

    I greet you in peace and solidarity! One Christian saint and a very good soul, Bl. Teresa of Calcutta once said: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” Just follow the Path and you will never get lost. I salute you in your courage, compassion, and understanding. We are hoping that you’d continue your work, spreading the Wisdom and Compassion of the Buddha, and may your light radiate in the four corners of this world and beyond. – Your Christian mystic friend, Noel Sales Barcelona

  41. tenzinkhenchen on Oct 7, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    I am very grateful to have met such a wonderful lama like His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. I would never have the merit to meet another like Rinpoche. I think that criticism is bad and Rinpoche does not deserve criticism. Criticism is only used by cowards who wish to think that they are all that when they are not. They do not have accomplished what Rinpoche has accomplished and have to benefited the amount of people that Rinpoche has benefited. They have no right.

  42. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 7, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    I have heard a lot of rumours and negative things about Rinpoche, but those were spread by people who are selfish and arrogant. Although I have heard so much rumours, but I know who’s the real friend and who’s not, who has benefited my family and who has not, who really cares about others and not just Himself, it will always be Rinpoche. No matter what happens, I will always trust and support Rinpoche, as for the people who just can’t live without criticising others/making others feel bad, they are not worth of Rinpoche’s time/tears/love, soon they will understand. But i’m 200% sure that my family will always support Rinpoche no matter what, be it doomsday or zombie apocalypse( it’s a bit dramatic, yes), but I mean it.

  43. June Tang(KHJB) on Oct 7, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your thoughts with us.All I wish to say is ” We are really fortunate to meet Rinpoche in this life and in Malaysia,grateful for all Rinpoche’s effort to bring Dharma teachings to all of us,without you we learn nothing !” There’s no replacement for Tsem Rinpoche, there’s only one~~WE ALL LOVE YOU WHAT YOU ARE !!!

    谢谢大慈大悲的仁波切能宽恕和祈愿那些曾经毁谤过他的名誉的人。只要我们记住仁波切的教诲和开示,加上对仁波切的依止心,我们内心就不会对修佛之路有动摇。就当作是修佛过程遇到的障碍,用平常心去看待一切的障碍,一切事情都会慢慢的临祸而解。谢谢仁波切的教诲与分享。

  45. andrew on Oct 7, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    wow good work mate.
    in our family we always said you can keep some of the people happy some of the tie but you can not keep all of the people happy all of the time best just be bloody happy. ( a real aussie outlook on happiness) Any way i think i can read between the lines of this extremely long monologue. How confused I am now after 15 years of following sogyal rinpoche he has been screwing his young female students now for thirty years. wow where does the truth of everythign lie only one place rinpoche in ones own mind and nowhere else and no one need to tell anyone else about it .

  46. Lawrence on Oct 7, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    You used a great word – Emptiness!
    The malice defines the person who use it, regardless of whether it’s right or not.
    Of course You’ll keep doing what you have to do. This is the best way for You, for Your students and even for Your detractors.
    Thank You Rinpoche!

  47. William on Oct 7, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    All said and done, those criticism does make us stronger and wiser. These few years, I have seen for myself how people who was once praising Rinpoche turned around and criticise in the worst scenario. All because of their anger and fear of facing the truth themselves. Have they forgotten how they have benefitted from Rinpoche’s care and teachings?

    Like what Rinpoche said, may they have peace in the lives.

  48. SL on Oct 7, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    I had benefited alot from receiving your teaching in this blog. Like to do things without self-gratification, to treat people without ill agendas and never to make use of parent and always treat parent well.
    People might had misunderstood you and created obstacles for you and i wish to offer my minute(as in one person) but full spiritual support to you!!

    With well wishes.
    SL.

  49. Patsy on Oct 7, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    As Rinpoche’s student for a long time, I have seen many people harboring hatred towards Rinpoche yet Rinpoche has never reacted to all those negative remarks, accusations or physical harms. Instead, Rinpoche will forgive them and even pray for their well being. Throughout all these years, many have cheated and taken advantage of Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion yet condemn Rinpoche and I can’t imagine what will be the karmic repercussions of those people.

    Negative people will not drag Rinpoche down instead it will propel Rinpoche to work even harder to benefit more as it is Rinpoche’s nature to help and care for all beings. Those negative people are just a dot as compared to the many that will always remain true and loyal to Rinpoche. We love you,Rinpoche! We love you for what you are!

  50. Shelly tai on Oct 7, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this thoughts with us . I fully agree with what Rinpoche has said the bottom line is our motivation if our motivation is to do good for others no matter what is correct because we did not harm others and Rinpoche has really show a good example of practice of Eight Vesus of mind transformation , if we always put this teaching into ou life than we will not react negativity or feel upset about negative command.

  51. sockwan on Oct 7, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    We cannot be loved, liked by everyone in this whole wide world, there will be people to criticize us, hate us and put us down from time to time.

    When we hear criticism about others, we should use our brain, our analytical skill to observe, the object of criticism, then me make our judgement. If we become the object of criticism, we should examine ourselves, our motivations. If what we are doing is out of good motivation, do not let others stop us from doing what is good and do not be discouraged.

    Throughout the years, Rinpoche has been lied, cheated, treated extremely badly, criticized, but he has never given up helping others, which is his only goal in his life. The more people criticize, the more growth and successful Rinpoche’s works are. Success is the best ‘revenge’ we can have to people who are trying to put us down.

    When you are feeling down, wanting to give up, read more about Rinpoche’s life story, you will definitely be inspired!

  52. Valentina Suhendra on Oct 7, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    My dear Rinpoche

    I found three types of criticism:
    – A constructive one: help you to get better
    – Attention seeking criticism: sometimes, when you respond to them, they become very different or neutral. But these types of persons require a lot of maintenance and must be continuously fed with attention
    – Jealousy or envy based criticism: just ignore them.

    I found that my time can be better allocated toward other more useful things rather than entertaining the last two types of criticism. Just ignore them or reveal the facts that silent them. Their credibility will be shattered on their own. Results will speak by itself.

    Valentina

  53. Jacinta on Oct 7, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Neither good or bad. Some of them are wish fulfilling gem. Some of them are supreme teachers and others just want victory. May my guru, His Eminence have compassion on them as they have little faith and devotion like me. With your compassion please guide them from misery.

  56. Choongs on Oct 7, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for the essay. My summary of your teaching is that criticism gives you a multi-level kick-in-the-pants and motivates you to do even more and better. _/\_

    • David Lai on Nov 9, 2013 at 6:10 pm

      Hi Choongs,

      You are very funny when you say that. I think criticism is something that actually reflects someone’s immense popularity especially in Rinpoche’s case. For some reason, a lot of people are jealous and sense a lot jealousy on the part of many of those that criticise.

      They may on their own individual levels or collectively as an organisational entity may or may never achieve the same results as Rinpoche and that’s why jealousy arises. They would find it harder to rejoice even when Rinpoche is actually doing good work. Instead of seeing the benefits of what Rinpoche is doing, they rather focus on the flaws. That would be their undoing because the karma would come back. The lesson of the day, rejoice. Rejoicing counters jealousy and it also makes it easier to learn and become a better person by learning from others. Jealousy stops learning.

  57. henry ooi on Oct 7, 2013 at 9:52 am

    As one of Rinpoche’s students, I have seen and heard accusations hurled at Rinpoche, twisted lies to cover one’s faults and selfishness, physical and verbal threats, defamatory remarks, and all above said. Yet Rinpoche never responded to all these negativities but instead send love and well wishes through prayers.
    Some people realized their follies, apologised and returned to the dharma path, not necessary returning as Rinpoche’s students.
    Some people see their follies yet were ashamed of what they have said and done and stopped those negative actions.
    Some people cannot see and do not want to admit their follies, ran away and continue talking and doing negative deeds.
    Yet Rinpoche still loves all of us.henry

  58. henrylai on Oct 7, 2013 at 9:27 am

    Dear Rinpoche
    I am a new follower and I don’t know what is going on. After reading your post, I am thinking of Jesu Christ who had been criticized, betrayed and harmed, but Jesu said those people “don’t know what they’re doing” and prayed God for forgiveness. Wow! Was Jesu Christ hurted physically and mentally at that time. Sure he was. Otherwise, it was no meaning of greatness of Jesu Christ. He is so grace and so well known untill now and forever.

    • Choongs on Oct 7, 2013 at 10:11 am

      Dear Henry, that is a good insight. But I hope that you will be a student and learn, do and experience, rather than be a follower. Just my thoughts to share. Cheers!

      • henrylai on Oct 8, 2013 at 1:16 am

        Hi Rinpoche, Hi Choongs
        I love to be Tsem Rinpoche’s student. In my mind, Tsem Rinpoche is my Guru. I will chant “Calling Lama from afar” everyday from the US If Rinpoche doesn’t mind.

  59. suet moi on Oct 7, 2013 at 7:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche
    Wise person should able to check and think what Rinpoche has done for us. What is Rinpoche motivation by continue stay with us in Malaysia. Actions and result speak louder thank words. We should just ignore them.
    May Rinpoche always be peace and success in dharma.

  60. Lin on Oct 7, 2013 at 6:55 am

  61. patriciasnodgrass on Oct 7, 2013 at 6:28 am

    I have had horrible ugly and hurtful things said to me about my own guru, to my face, by people I don’t even know. And some of them were monastics. And I’m sure that when I am commanded by my guru to teach then I’ll get the same type of derision. It hurts, but…I know the results I get when I follow my teacher’s instructions. Sure he’s an obscure monk from an obscure lineage, but his teachings work for me. Your own gurus, your own teachers, their teachings work for you. You have had ENORMOUSLY good results from following your own gurus, and YOUR students have good results from following you. The Buddha’s final command to us was to be a light. And as a woman from the great green expanse of Texas, I can say that a light can attract two things: those who are seeking refuge from the darkness…or bugs…Just sweep the bugs out of your life and continue to be a refuge for those who need you. May you be happy and healthy, my dear Dharma friend.

    Terrible night of degenerate times, terrible world of species devoration and cannibalism, terrible times, with the human animal as usual, utterly lost in his/her journey to ‘death’. I’m sure anything really spiritually valuable in this world, will be chased, fought,
    denied, murdered if possible. How many ‘saviours’ had to give their lifes, and did it pleasurably if such a thing were possible, for the sake and love of dust bags (to be gentle) and idiots ! Nothing with love is lost, our remedy, our path (maha karuna),our only way.
    What I read of the kind of criticism directed to the Venerable Tsem, made me think of childish folly. These who criticize everything and can’t stop the dear tongues unless they
    slander something or someone, are unripe spoiled children,
    prisioners of folly, with dire consequences ONLY for themselves.

  64. LilyTan on Oct 7, 2013 at 5:11 am

    We cannot stop other people from speaking ill of us. Words are just sound and as long as we are true to ourselves, that is all that matters. Rinpoche walks the talk and ultimately that is what counts.

  65. Nicole Renee on Oct 7, 2013 at 5:00 am

  66. Thomas Marshall on Oct 7, 2013 at 4:54 am

    Rinpoche I love the way you speak true, since long time I see you like my master, I follow the rime path and each you teaching remind me everyday that what I believe and fight for have huge purpose to help other thank you for this great teaching send you love !!!

      Thank you very much Thomas. So kind of you to let me know your feelings. I deeply appreciate it and wish you great spiritual luck and my prayers. Tsem Rinpoche

    • andrew on Oct 7, 2013 at 6:08 pm

      you know rinpoche i think going for a ten year retreat with 108 students is a really smart idea for you and for the benefit of all developing a truly natural loving organic hideaway in the forest where fully luminous ones will eminate in ten years time. Nothing saying that books can not come out of the forest nor good works nothing saying all of the good works need to stop just 108 students growing together and then in ten years wow imagine what will have grown

    Zasep Tulku Rinpoche a respected, courage, highly attained Lama and a well known dedicated and devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner . Having a strong guru devotion , courage ,great teaching abilities, he is truly a Great Lama who has uphold the lineage and be of benefit to others. He is admired by many for his courage speaking against the odds and defending about Dorje Shugden practice. He speaks the truth of the practice , the preservation of the Gelug lineage and Tibetan Buddhism. Zasep Rinpoche also acknowledges that the Shugden controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Leadership to deflect attention from their incompetence. Dorje Shugden has been practiced for centuries by many high lamas. He even said that it was Dorje Shugden that has exhorted the Dalai Lama to flee Tibet.
    In his autobiography,… A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada tells us a thousand words his account and experience as a refugee. He was forced to flee his invaded country, on a desperate journey to refugee status in Nepal, travelling through a number of countries and finally, citizenship in Canada. The book gives readers an intimate look into the life of one of the remaining Tibetan born and trained masters. A definite good book to catch hold as its contain all of the elements of a great spiritual bio. He continues to share precious knowledge through an expanding of books, which is available in many countries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    A dog, cat, bird or any animal you bring home is not a pet. You may think of them as so, but they don’t think that way about themselves. To them you are their hope, love, family and safety. If you cannot take care of them, don’t get them in… the first place. Just like any family member when young, they are cute and cuddly, but as they grow, they become adults. You don’t get rid of a family member when they are not cute and cuddly anymore do you? All animals have feelings of pain, sorrow, joy, love, fear and security just like us. Don’t cause them any pain or anxiety. They need us as we need them.

    They are not a commodity, toy, entertainment, punching bag or some fixture to abuse or get rid of when we don’t want them anymore. Think how you would feel if you were them and you were dumped somewhere? Imagine if you are just something to be eliminated when your not cuddly and cute anymore or just ‘get in the way?’ Be kind to animals especially the ones you bring home and cuddle and love when they are babies. You are their world and the only world they have in their restricted lives. Remember we took them from their mothers, families and separated them from their siblings when very young and environments and forced them into our environments. We owe them some loyalty.

    On a visit to the Modisa Wildlife Project near Maun, Botswana, traveller John Hawkins captured this heartwarming footage that shows the incredible bond between a lioness and her rescuer. In the video, Sirga can be seen eagerly pacing back and forth behind a fence as the man, Valentin Gruener, unlocks the gate. Once the gate is opened, the 110-pound lioness jumps onto Gruener—for a cuddly, full-body embrace! Sirga clearly displays her affection for the man, rubbing noses with him during the hug and even laying across his lap on the ground. What an amazing friendship!

    Thank you for the sharing the mystery of the sailing stone. Actually we need to thank the mother earth for creating all the wonders and miracles. Making scientists puzzled in their research and a loss to explain how or why rocks appear to move around by themselves.

    It is very interesting and sound crazy. I never heard of this phenomenon before, but those photos made me google for further information.. I really hope to get here one day just to feel the extraordinary scenery and to witness the incredible phenomenon. Enjoyed the article and the photos.

    Released in 2005, EARTHLINGS premiered at the Artivist Film Festival and won the Best Documentary Feature. It then went on to win the Best Content Award and Best Documentary Film at the Boston International Film Festival and the San Diego Film Festival respectively.

    What is this video that made such an impact on these renowned film recognition boards?

    The 95-minute documentary was inspired by Shaun Monson. He’s a writer, producer and director who had previous shot footage of animal shelters within Los Angeles. He did it to produce a series of public service announcements… however, what he saw had such a profound effect on him that he decided to produce what became known as Earthlings.

    Worldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

    Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

    About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.

    Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.”

    These monks who built the temple has a really good motivation to use the glass bottles as the building material. We are generating a lot of rubbish every day but we have not thought where the rubbish will end up.

    Most of the rubbish we generated goes to the landfill. Some end up in the oceans. Either way, the rubbish has destroyed our environment and lives, including our health.

    These monks show us how to make rubbish into something useful. It is also a good lesson to teach us we have to care more about our environment.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.

    For years, the FBI has filed animal abuse under the label “other” along with a variety of lesser crimes, making cruelty hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. The bureau announced this month that it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category – the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed.

    “It will help get better sentences, sway juries and make for better plea bargains,” said Madeline Bernstein, president and CEO of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles and a former New York prosecutor.

    Jessie Earhart had been saving up for a new car when a chance encounter with an abandoned dog changed her plans completely. The kindhearted girl, just 15-years-old, asked her mom to stop when she discovered a discarded dog running along a road. When the teen approached the severely injured pup, the dog now known as Lilly, immediately ran into the girl’s arms nuzzling her head into her arms in relief.

    An animal control officer took Lilly away to a veterinarian for her facial injuries — believed to have been caused by someone who used an ax to strike her face. Lilly’s medical bills piled up and she faced euthanasia. When the teen found out, she offered up the $400 she had been saving to buy a car to help pay the veterinary expenses and decided to adopt the dog herself.

    The teen has no regrets and admits the right car will be there a year from now, but the dog’s life needed to be saved now. Wait until you see how happy Lilly is today — all thanks to one very incredible teen.

    Please take a look at these beautiful images of animals rearing their young in the wild. Their love, gentleness and care towards the young is so amazing. So touching. Each photo captured the beauty of the unbreakable bond between a parent and their child. If you’re a parent, you’ll surely appreciate this.

    Never hurt animals. Never kill them. Never eat them. Let them be in peace and have happy lives. They have every right to live and without fear just like us. We should always protect their environments also.

    Not eating animals is not necessarily a choice for the religious, but a choice of conscience and caring for the environment. Animal farming is contributing very much to the greenhouse effect destroying our atmosphere. Do not contribute to animals being beaten, tied, slaughtered and killed just for us to taste something ‘good’. Fried blood and cooked flesh are not good because it caused pain. Go visit the slaughterhouse weekly. Important. No matter what others say, we must have some principles and not ‘fail’ in everything using others as an excuse. Always be firm in our convictions. I mean principles that protect others from pain. If we are vegetarian, remain so. If we are considering, then research more on the benefits for ourselves, the environment, our planet, our children and the animals. Be firm in helping others and our planet.

    It seems that humans aren’t the only ones who need forgiveness.
    Bizarre footage has surfaced of a fugitive pig grovelling in front of a temple in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province on Tuesday.
    Pictures and video of the bowing boar, which had escaped from a nearby farm, have spread like wildfire on Chinese social media, sparking a flurry of debates over what the animal was doing, reports Sina.
    Footage shows the animal kneeling on its forelimbs encircled by worshippers, as a Buddhist ceremony takes place inside the temple.
    The saintly swine reportedly stayed put for hours, and only left the scene after a group of monks emerged from inside and chanted a Buddhist scripture towards it.

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
