Esquire Magazine calls

Dear friends,

I received a message from my assistant that the international magazine Esquire wanted to interview me… I said ok… the time was set and they came over. The interviewer was a pleasant, intelligent and nice young man. I enjoyed the interview. Well here it is. Thanks to everyone involved.

Tsem Rinpoche


ESQUIRE (Malaysia), May 2012, pg. 90-91 

In our May Meaning of Life Issue, we sit down for an interview with one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders. Tsem Rinpoche is a lama who founded the Buddhist organisation Kechara, and can count living on the streets, being scouted for acting roles, and modelling as just some of the more unusual parts of his past. So it’s no surprise we wanted to sit down with him, and hear his thoughts on Madonna, Steven Seagal, and his role as a spiritual leader. We have included special soundbites from our interview, so listen away!


This is the online version, click on this link to read the full article: http://www.esquire.my/People/What-Ive-Learned/article/Tsem-Tulku-Rinpoche


Here are seven choice quotes (In case the link not working, this is duplicated here):

I really didn’t want to be a monk just teaching compassion, and people walking off the streets, getting a blessing and walking out saying, “I didn’t understand anything.” I wanted to bring it out to contemporary people. I wanted people to look exactly as they look, but be different on the inside. (listen to this quote below:)

      Meaning of Life - Rinpoche - 1

Romantic movies, I know the beginning, I know the middle, I know the end. It’s not even predictable. You don’t have to be a Tibetan psychic monk to know it. It’s just boring. (listen to this quote below:)

      Meaning of Life - Rinpoche - 2

People’s general mentality towards spirituality is this: if I’m not happy, make me happy. I’m not at peace, so I come to get peace. I can’t get a girlfriend, I need your help to get one. They come with those kinds of motivations. And I look at them and say, “Take a real good look. Do I look like a dating agency?”

Oh, I wanted to be an actor. I chose to become a monk because it was an instruction from my teacher. And now, people tell me, you should have been an actor, then a monk, you would have been another Steven Seagal. But I thought to myself, don’t regret my path, just follow the path of what I’ve chosen. I trusted this old master all the way.

I said to myself, I’m going to blog about what I like. I’m not going to blog about what they expect. So you wouldn’t think it’s a Buddhist monk’s blog. I blog about Madonna, UFOs, food. I’m not trying to be different. Those are things I’m interested in. (listen to this quote below:)

      Meaning of Life - Rinpoche - 3

What I like about Madonna is that she never stays stagnant. She’s very up-beat and with the times. “Girl Gone Wild”, I love that song. (we thought this whole segment about a monk talking about Madonna was so unique, we have included the entire portion where Rinpoche talks about her. Listen to this below:)

      Meaning of Life - Rinpoche - 4

I dare say with the deepest respect to everyone, I don’t think one religion suits everyone.

We have also looked through the YouTube archives, and found some videos of Rinpoche before, during and after:

 

A younger Rinpoche talking about meditating.

 

 

Rinpoche responding to a question on his Facebook page on jealousy.

 

Rinpoche promoting his new show about the paranormal, which is set to air on NTV7 tentatively in August.

    Esquire is an American men’s magazine based in New York City , it has been published by the Hearst Corporation since 1986. Found this old post and realised such an international magazine had interviewed our Guru Tsem Rinpoche long ago. Esquire described our Rinpoche as one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders. That’s true Tsem Rinpoche down to earth very special Lama and founded the Buddhist organization Kechara. We are fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia, showing us the way.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    View
    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

    Love Rinpoche’s humour and charisma (as always) that comes across in this article and the picture accompanied. Best parts for me in the article are:
    People: ”Why do you have hair?” Rinpoche: ”Because it grows.” LOL.
    And the part about not hurting animals by consuming them. And how some nicer ghosts are scared of us. Oh no… Also love Rinpoche’s wish for people to be same on the outside but different (dharmawise) on the inside. _/\_

  7. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 4:36 am

    Nice post in the photo Rinpoche, u always make the different for us. The phase “one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders” very suitable for u. Our Guru pose and look is better that the magazine front page.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the interview that make more peoples can connect to Rinpoche and Kechara.

  8. Ferry Djap on May 29, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    I love the pic of Rinpoche in here 🙂

  9. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 20, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    I love how witty Rinpoche is! His quotes are short yet straightforward. One of my favorite part has to be when people asked Rinpoche why does Rinpoche have hair when He was modeling. “Because it grows.” So witty and profound! haha!
    May everyone benefit from Rinpoche’s teachings.

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche.

  10. Davin on May 20, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Thank you to Esquire magazine. I like Rinpoche photo so much.. Rinpoche is cute in the picture. The question and answer that I like is people would ask Rinpoche why do he have hair and Rinpoche answer because it grows..
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this to us.

  11. jennifer on May 15, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    The minute i heard about the interview of Rinpoche in Esquire magazine , i dashed out , bought the magazine , turned to the interview and read every word 3 times. It’s profound , wise , thought provoking and so very funny ! Love it love it love it !

  12. andrew hibberd on May 15, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Love it!!! Cheeky, cute and fun Rinpoche we have hehehehe… whenever i read the magazine and look at Rinpoche’s pictures. I smile!
    We love you Rinpoche!

  14. Seng Aun on May 15, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Rinpoche is not only stylish with his approach in Dharma but very creative with his words as well.

    I always enjoy reading Rinpoche’s quotes and can’t help smiling or laughing at the same time.

    It’s really cool of Rinpoche and I simply adores this hilarious yet interesting pose of his. Great job, Rinpoche!

    For the record, I have already bought this issue of Esquire. Rinpoche indeed, helps to boost the sales…

    • Seng Aun on May 17, 2012 at 2:52 am

      Rinpoche is not only stylish in his approach to dharma but very creative with his words as well.

      Sorry for the error.

  15. So Kin Hoe on May 14, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Rinpoche has shown us the true meaning of Buddhism in his modern days. Thank you Rinpoche.

  16. Mei Fong on May 14, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. The picture is very attractive and cute too.

  17. Adrian Cho on May 14, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    I likes those quotes and the picture of Rinpoche, that so cute and funny.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  18. Grace Leong on May 14, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche ,
    I showed the Esquire write up to some of my non-Kechara friends in the salon , and they think you are such a “funky” teacher , perfect for this generation !!!! Personally , I loved all the quotes . They were so point-blank on the issues . Also Rinpoche is so witty !!! Laughed a lot ! Thank you Rinpoche . Looking forward to Rinpoche doing more of such interviews with the media ,to spread the Dharma .

  19. Datuk May on May 14, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Dare to be yourself! Had always been the teaching of Rinpoche that stuck to me. Look at the photo, which Monk would dare to have such a picture taken.

    This is it, the Lama for this modern world, courageous and different.

  20. Joe Ang on May 14, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Nice interview, GREAT pictures. Though Rinpoche blogs about what he likes, and not what people expects. I find it’s what he likes that bring so many of us to read and learn from his blog. Rinpoche with great patience uses examples from the things he find interesting to share with us and allow us to learn in ways that are easy to absorb and understand. Like Madonna, we should never be stagnant. Keep up to the beat! No matter if you are young young or “still”, young…

  21. Deborah on May 14, 2012 at 9:51 am

    I think Rinpoche’s picture should have been the cover. Super cute and who’d think a Lama was so approachable, down to earth and just so real!
    hope there’ll be a follow up story soon.

  22. JImmy Tan on May 14, 2012 at 12:22 am

    我重复一遍又一篇聆听师傅讲的对话。感觉很精彩很风趣。
    这是一位非常独特的上师。我必须加倍珍惜!

    • James Long on May 21, 2012 at 12:47 am

      我们是非常幸运能够遇见仁波切,并且能够那么近距离的接受他的开示。如果不是仁波切独特创新的教学方式和修行态度,相信我们很多人都会因此而继续我们世俗上的追求,不会进入或接触任何的修行。多年以后重听仁波切的开示,都会有不同的感触和见解。

  23. Kwok wai on May 13, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Excellent article on RInpoche ! Very cute pose, that’s just so him .look out world here comes our RInpoche ! I really enjoyed his quotes in this article , very off the cuff and so so original . I dare say it left goose pimples on me and a sense of overwhelming pride , that I am fortunate enough to have met him in person .

  24. Jean Mei on May 13, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!!

    I’ve already gotten my 3 copies to give 2 away and keep the other for a long time to come! My collection addiction has started… I can’t wait for Rinpoche to appear on more local and internationl publications! 🙂

  25. wt on May 13, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    haha, like the picture very much, “Now you see me, now you don’t!”

    Buddhism is the combination of art & science of living. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche brings it to all regardless of their religions in order to improve and enhance everyone’s life in a modern way.

    From the sharings, we can also see that Rinpoche is very authentic and honest to his likes and don’t. Where can we find a monk who said he likes Madonnna? 🙂

    Like this write up very much, especially with the soundbites from interviews and Esquire is also making extra effort to find Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s video clips from you tube.

    May more interviews on the way and spread the name of Rinpoche to more!

  26. Junior on May 13, 2012 at 11:49 am

    The article is simple but it the best way to promote kechara.
    Nice pics.

  27. Irene Lim on May 13, 2012 at 6:49 am

    It so cool to feature Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in Esquire. It is creatively done and with a big difference that will appeal to many. Great Job!

    • Ckh on May 13, 2012 at 11:24 am

      Great outreach – one day can appear in monocle. Ultra chic.

  28. Li Kim on May 12, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    When I heard that Rinpoche granted Esquire an interview, I was really pleasantly surprised! In some way I was nervous how Esquire would present Rinpoche. I am really impressed how the interview came out.

    The interview is simple and yet reveals to the readers who Rinpoche is. This article not only tells the world who Rinpoche is but it gives a new perception of a modern day Lama. In many ways, people have a certain fixed “old-fashion” view of Lamas, this article and how they have presented the contents is very modern. Refreshing. Most of all, attractive to the new people who are the readers of Esquire. Being featured with the other candidates also gives the impact of new and modern popular people.

    Good feature! Thank you to Jon Chew who interviewed Rinpoche and also the Esquire editorial team!

  29. DR on May 12, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    This is our Rinpoche all right! Always speaks the truth, not what he thinks others like to hear. Sometimes truth shocks our system but when it is a heartfelt advice, it moves the listener and the result is beneficial.

    I salute Esquire magazine for the bold move in featuring Rinpoche. To me, it is an expression of your respect to your readers that they have depth and appreciate some words of wisdom.

  30. Michelle on May 12, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    My god, that was such a brilliant article. Really.
    Thank you for existing Rinpoche. You’ve made your mark. Now i want to find mine. 🙂

  31. Pastor Chia on May 12, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Look at the rinpoche picture and interview at the magazine, many people might think Buddhist monk should not acting like this. Rinpoche is well know cyber monk at the world now. Through rinpoche kindness sharing his thinking had effected more people at the world understand more about Buddhism.
    I like this article a lot at the Esquire magazine.

  32. Erickksiow on May 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    I really love this quote : Oh, I wanted to be an actor. I chose to become a monk because it was an instruction from my teacher. And now, people tell me, you should have been an actor, then a monk, you would have been another Steven Seagal. But I thought to myself, don’t regret my path, just follow the path of what I’ve chosen. I trusted this old master all the way.

    Best Regards : Erickksiow _/\_

  33. Steve Tobias on May 12, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    I love the comments from non-Kecharian readers. It means they are connecting with dharma and Rinpoche. Sometimes I am apprehensive about which dharma talks to link friends, to make sure it suits them and their predispositions. But really, people connect quite easily either way.

  34. Uncle Eddie on May 12, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    The interesting interveiw between Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Esquire Magazine, was indeed full of frankness, honesty, excitement and meaningful comments, humorous as well at the end. Truly a most modern, understanding and well-realised Lama, Rinpoche made this interview simple and easy to understand. Perhaps, some of the most salient comments made by him which attracted me most were:- (1) His remark calling on people not to treat a spiritual Lama like a dating agency or a matching bureau. (2) not sticking with the choice of becoming an actor first, then a monk later like Steven Seagal did, but Rinpoche went ahead to follow the path of his old master to be a monk all life through without regret. (3) He dared to be different and not stuck with the herd of blogging what is expected of a buddhist monk’s blog, but something different, exciting and of great interest for all! On his care, attention and treatment of animals, Rinpoche’s love, feeling and incomparable compassion to them is universial and a common knowledge to all who knows him -“A saviour of beings”! Om mani padme hum.

  35. Victor Phang on May 12, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Rinpoche’s picture really funny and different than any other monks’ serious posture when taking pictures. Even the way of publishing this interview also very different -point by point instead of paragraph by paragraph. I believe both the interview and picture can really attract young and busy working community. Very good approach to introduce Rinpoche, Buddhism, Dharma and Kechara to youth who is the key decision maker for the future growth of Buddhism.

    So after this introduction, what’s next that we can do to bring them closer to Dharma? I always like to ask “what’s next?” to myself because this is the essential question to keep me going and growing 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and congratulation for the successful interview.
    Take very good care.
    With love,
    VP

  36. Chandra on May 12, 2012 at 5:35 am

    The picture is so adorable. It’s almost like a cute attack, with due respect to Rinpoche. I feel Rinpoche’s messages are like a slap on our faces. A kind wake-up call. The quotes are like ‘I’m calling a spade a spade’! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

  37. bengkooi on May 12, 2012 at 4:45 am

    I am very happy that this has come to fruition. The original email from Esquire requesting for an interview with Rinpoche seems like ages ago now, and Rinpoche agreeing to give the interview was a very pleasant surprise. I was one of the lucky few to be present during the interview and photoshoot, and reporter Jon Chew did a great job. The actual interview lasted for over 3 hours and the content was superb. Its a shame that there wasnt enough space to publish the whole interview, but perhaps Esquire will do a full feature on just Rinpoche next time 🙂

  38. Cynthia L on May 12, 2012 at 3:57 am

    I think it means something for Esquire to want to interview Rinpoche! This is just one of the few for many more interviews and exposures in the medias to come!

    Esquire has written the article in a manner which is easy to read, appeals to readers and on top of that presented Rinpoche’s videos and audio (in the website) which doesn’t appear to be forceful and hardsell while totally blend in with the whole article. It was very very clever. We should learn this sort of creative writing and structure from them.

    I do hope that this article will be able to shed some light to the public who picked up a copy. May Rinpoche’s teachings are able to reach them in future.

  39. Don Buchwalter on May 12, 2012 at 3:54 am

    What a wonderful article! It is so nice to see magazines of popular culture add a little depth to their pages. I am sure that many people will benefit from Rinpoche’s appearance!

  40. Sharon Saw on May 12, 2012 at 2:11 am

    It’s fantastic that a classy magazine like Esquire wanted to interview Rinpoche. I thought it was great that Rinpoche was featured alongside luminaries like Stephen Hawking, Alec Baldwin, Ethan Hawke, Helen Mirren… Rinpoche was a spiritual person in the feature yet it is amazing that someone in robes fitted right in! It is Rinpoche’s refreshing, joyful and charismatic personality which lets him stand out from the crowd… even in such illustrious company!!

    • Mc on May 14, 2012 at 4:01 am

      I couldn’t agree more with Sharon. Rinpoche appearing in Esquire, an international brand is really fantastic and I bet it has fired a lot of imagination. It is great how Rinpoche breaks the traditional mould and makes dharma actually fun. I love the thought provoking answers delivered with a lot of wit and candor.

  41. mayy on May 12, 2012 at 1:37 am

    Rinpoche protrays the compassion side of him to benefit many who needs spiritual guidance and help. He is not here to look for fame for he forgoes all the pleasures and privacy that we chase after. Instead he has to endure all the pains and disappointments of his students and friends to continue to bring dharma and guide them.
    He brings dharma in many different ways down to our level of understanding and practicality without changing our outlook but mind transformation. In fact, spirituality that appeals to everyone in many different levels in this modern age.

  42. Koh Hee Peng on May 12, 2012 at 1:32 am

    When I was a model, people would ask me very interesting profound questions like, “Why do you have hair?” And I would give interesting and profound answers like, “Because it grows” – Can’t stop gigling reading this quote from the article (couple with the the imagination of Rinpoche’s facial expression):D

    In his earlier life, Rinpoche was given a choice as whether to be ordained or to lead a normal life, of which it was predicted by Rinpoche’s guru that Rinpoche would achieve celebrity status should Rinpoche chose not to be ordained. Due to Rinpoche’s strong imprint in his past lives, Rinpoche has chosen to be be ordained in his early 20s. Guess what, 30 years later, Rinpoche has also achieved the celebrity status despite having ordained due to Rinpoche’s unerring compassion towards all beings.

  43. Terri on May 12, 2012 at 12:45 am

    Yes! Rinpoche is awesome <3

  44. Yvonne on May 11, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Rinpoche’s photo make people happy, when i saw the photo, i have a smile, smile out from my heart, feel very happy : )

  45. Sam on May 11, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    Haha….Rinpoche surely got his stylo. I like the presentation of our guru in this article and magazine. It is very straight forward and simple also very funny especially the part where ppl ask Rinpoche “Why do you have hairs?”. This part really made my day.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this here. Take care 🙂

  46. Louise Lee on May 11, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    不一样的年代, 有不一样的人。

    不一样的人, 有不一样性格。

    不一样的性格, 有不一样的兴趣。

    我有一位与众不同的仁波切, 佛法与时代一起进步! 是仁波切, 是仁波切证明给我们看! 我爱仁波切, 我爱他, 爱他让我把佛法放进我生活!

    谢谢您!

    rinpoche上杂志,希望陆续有来,喇嘛不一定要正经八百做在法座上拍照,看仁波切摆这样的

    pose拍照,是不是很可爱,喇嘛的博客也可以很时尚。

  48. Julia Tan on May 11, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    As Rinpoche always do, appeared with many many delightful faces with His very own style, many many beautiful quotes, giving us very straight forward teachings. Rinpoche messages will sent to the world through here. Whoever that are fortunate enough to read about Rinpoche will be much benefited and created the karma to meet Rinpoche in person.

  49. anita on May 11, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    that is very good ours rinpoche interview with international magazine.this is nice way to promote kechara i love it.

  50. Paris on May 11, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Hooooorah! A lovely piece – as much fun being in the interview proper as it was to read the article afterwards. I do especially love how they’ve called Rinpoche avant-garde… which I suppose he is!

    This is exciting too, for it marks Rinpoche’s first public interview in a globally loved and respected magazine – yet another dynamic way Rinpoche brings his teachings out to people and places where you’d least expect to see spirituality. And the article (selection of quotes) reflects this perfectly – that joyous diversity, juxtapositions and dichotomies of Madonna / mantras, Hollywood / holiness, Dharma / disco.

    I daresay Rinpoche makes a perfect example of a true Esquire man – real style, openness and on the pulse of anything, everything, anyone, everyone he meets.

  51. Ana Montero on May 11, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    The article was so HOT! It was great, entertaining, inspiring… Kechara will grow and grow! I love the picture of Rinpoche hiding behind a big leaf. So cute!.

  52. Lim Han Nee on May 11, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Wow, Rinpoche, you really show the world that Buddhism and compassion can take on an ‘avant-garde’ look.

    Kechara, through Rinpoche, will now hog the limelight. Why? Because its spiritual leader, is seen (by a leading magazine Esquire )as one of the most ‘avant-garde’ spiritual leaders of this country,who posts about Madonna ,food, UFO and the paranormal and Chinese horoscope on his blog,who wanted to become an actor but became a monk because it was his teacher’s instruction, who became a model for a short period to show his students that they could be whatever they wanted to be.

  53. Darren on May 11, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    I like how Rinpoche answer when people asked why does Rinpoche has hair during modelling years. “Because it grows”. LOL

  54. June Kang on May 11, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    I love to see all Rinpoche’s quotes, is so practical, logical, It is also show to the new generation you can be yourself as long as whatever you do is benefiting people.

    Thank you Esquire for doing a good job on this. Everyone, quick go and get a copy!

  55. xiao xiao on May 11, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    I love this picture. Curiously look at the world. The content will widen our horizon.

    Buddha will appear to you in different form or any form that you didn’t expect, so do High Lama, they have no ego issue, no pride, no agenda, what they do is only benefiting people, how they can be on help to make you a better person. H.E.Tsem Tulke Rinpoche is the one that I know of, he is not someone who wanted fame, but for Rinpoche to be famous, it means he will lose out all privacy where everyone can have, But still, Rinpoche doesn’t mind to go to this extend, because his only agenda in life is very simple, to bring dharma to as many people as possible.

  57. Carmen Koo on May 11, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    This feature of Rinpoche is awesome. I love it! Whilst reading the article, a few words popped into mind: Fun, Light, Casual, Jovial, Down-to-Earth, Different, Cool, Knowledgable and Amazing. I feel the feature portrays Rinpoche very well, it exudes the energy that Rinpoche leaves on everyone.

    Best of all, I love Rinpoche’s photo!! Whilst all the other photos are so prim and proper, Rinpoche’s photo for the feature totally strikes a difference – even if you’re flipping through the magazine, it’ll make you pause on the page because the page is so bold, cheeky and cute! It never fails to make me smile.

    Thank you Esquire magazine, for this wonderful feature. And thank you Rinpoche, for without you, there would be no feature.

    Love,
    Carmen

    I really love all the quotes.

    Rinpoche always relate the essence of the teaching in a very easy, fun and modern way for a lot of people to understand. Rinpoche is a real Lama that everyone can really feel the compassion from Rinpoche teaching and actions.

    This article really shows the unique ways of how Rinpoche deliver Buddhism in a modern, fun, meaningful & beneficial.

  59. william on May 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Even though it is just one page, it reveals a lot about Rinpoche on who he is. He is different from the rest of the other monks because he uses real life situations to relate to the people and not stories from ages ago. He comes off as human in this article same like any of us, yet different in many many ways!

    Thank you Rinpoche for revealing yourself to the world. Esquire, you have made the right choice!

  60. Andrew James Boon on May 11, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    Brilliant article (both printed and online version). It really does sum up Rinpche’s style and method of delivering very pertinent and profound insights and Dharma. Truly a well deserving spot amongst the other personae.

    Perhaps a solo next!!! Thank you Esquire!

  61. su an on May 11, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    “I attract people because I think different. Sounds like an Apple ad, but I do.”

    Rinpoche has been showing the world that Buddhism is adaptive, dynamic, contemporary, it is not burning incense and worshipping a statue and sitting in a cave. Rinpoche shows that Buddhists are not hermits and boring inert people who cannot do this cannot do that, cannot joke, cannot act cute, cannot be cheeky… I’m sure the Esquire readers would really enjoy this article and have their minds teased about their perception of Buddhism and Buddhist monks =D

  62. Wan on May 11, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    i love Rinpoche quotes in Esquire Magazine and of course a humor photo of Rinpoche too.. Its a very good to read quotes and listen the VDO together.. thank to Esquire for this option.

    Rinpoche quotes show us of how Dharma can be fun and entertain as the same time Rinpoche take Dharma practice seriously..

  63. KH Ng on May 11, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    This is a sign that Rinpoche and what he represents is gaining acceptance in today’s world. Rinpoche and Kechara can bring Dharma to today’s world.

  64. Lai on May 11, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Rinpoche teaching is very interesting and funny and close to our daily life. I used to think Dhama teaching is serious and boring. Rinpoche show us spirituality can be fun!

  65. Girlie on May 11, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Look – Rinpoche playing peek-a-boo with the photographer. That’s Rinpoche’s not-so-serious side.

  66. Elena on May 11, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    Aiyoh I love this interview, because it captures Rinpoche so well. Rinpoche is fun, playful, youthful, extremely intelligent, witty and above all, kind. Actually, the article is a really good reflection of how compassionate our lamas are – they will manifest any kind of behaviour to attract us to the Dharma. After all, this is what will appeal to Esquire’s readers, who are not the goody-goody crowd…they wouldn’t be so impressed by a monk on a high throne going, “Ommmmmmm” but they will like a monk who is peeking from behind a tree hehehe

  67. joey wong on May 11, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    I love this article so much!! It really shows and proves to people that spirituality dosent have to be boring!! Thank you Rinpoche again!

  68. patsy on May 11, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    Rinpoche’s quotes are so thought provoking and practical. Rinpoche’s approached to dharma is practical, down to earth, logical and inspiring. It can reach out to the young and old generation.

    Nice photo……Rinpoche looks very cute!

    Thank you Esquire for doing a great job!

  69. JG on May 11, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    Rinpoche is so cute in this pic. And i like this ,” I wanted to bring it out to contemporary people. I wanted people to look exactly as they look, but be different on the inside. ” & ” “Take a real good look. Do I look like a dating agency?” hahaha…

    Shelter from the rain of problems ? People got problems, find dharma ; People find dharma because got problems ? Most people look externally for the source of their problems..After we go deeper in this pathway, We feel extraordinarily fortunate to have the circumstances for Dharma … Not only open our eyes to all the things that are going right in our lives, but … our problems enable us to become better people and find our inner strength.

  70. Wan Wai Meng on May 11, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Love the soundbites and all the videos links that is inclusive. An articles about Rinpoche’s work is simply not enough, his work is so so vast and encompassing, there are so many dimensions to what Rinpoche represents to all the people in the world!

  71. Doreen on May 11, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    I love the quotes or sentences which so damn true facts and so logical from my Guru. This is my Guru, so true, kind and compassionate.

  72. sweekeong on May 11, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    I like the quotes. very funny.. the irony of life. 🙂

  73. Ethan Chu on May 11, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche is such a modern lama, how he delilvers Buddha in such creative, modern, humorous way for us to understand easily… I dare he is the one monk I came across with such quality. How fortunate we are to be his students in this very life time. Now the world is watching, it’s infectious!!!

  74. tenzin llhamo on May 11, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    LOVE the pic! It show Rinpoche’s fun side. The contents of the interview was very funny and interesting to know. I love ‘we should not use religion as a fear tactic’. Bought a copy to read. Thank you Esquire! I wonder when can we have Rinpoche on the cover of the magazine? hehe…

  75. abby F on May 11, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    那天买了这本杂志读过这篇访问后就有一种强烈的想法:如果我至今还没遇到这位喇嘛,在杂志上看到他精辟的惊世语录,我肯定会因此而喜欢上他。:)

  76. David Lai on May 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    This is just incredible. I love every single quote of Rinpoche’s because they are so thought-provoking and it gives insight towards improving ourselves in every sense of the word. I like the fact that he is so worldly and yet has a lot of wisdom to share. That is really a rare quality in a holy man these days. I will buy my very first copy of Esquire very soon.

  77. lewkwanleng on May 11, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Buddhism is not about hiding in a cave and just to meditation It is about transforming our mind. Malaysia is a country which is considered a barbaric country when it comes to Buddhism, because most of the people here just pray to get good luck, good business, a relationship, etc.

    Rinpoche brings the “seriousness” of Buddhism to us in a fun and “easy-to-absorb” way. Don’t miss out his talks, and don’t forget to transform our mind!!

  78. MayOng on May 11, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    Rinpoche’s photo on the issue of this Esquire magazine is Super Cute! and it really portrays the funny as well as the serious side of him. Thank you Esquire for doing a good job on this!

  79. Han on May 11, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I like the way the writer described Rinpoche and also the approach treatment is very attractive, even the photo they picked was amazing. Thank you for sharing this great interviewed article!

  80. lucy yap on May 11, 2012 at 11:48 am

    A candid interview with our beloved Rinpoche.Thank you Esquire Magazine for featuring our Rinpoche,who is great Lama who brings Dharma tirelessly through his inspiring Dharma teachings.Above all,thank you Rinpoche.What a lovely picture!

  81. Jay Jae on May 11, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Rinpoche is avant garde?

    Here’s a new word together with the dictionary list full of adjectives describing who my Lama is. Esquire Malaysia has really done a good job in bringing out the essence of Rinpoche in their coverage.

    Quick go and get a copy!

  82. Cody MBF (Singapore) on May 11, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Nice pics..

  83. wahying on May 11, 2012 at 11:06 am

    咋看之下,怎么仁波切会摆那样的pose?,谁说喇嘛就必须正经八百做在法座上拍照,谁又规定喇嘛的博客一定是硬邦邦的经文和教诲。当佛法已经是你生活的全部,你的生命,麦当娜也可以是法,带弟子逛街买衣服也是法。真开心,师父上杂志,希望陆续有来。

    • Shin on May 12, 2012 at 2:45 am

      嗯,同意你所说的。 内容介绍仁波切为 ‘one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders’,即我国当前最前卫的精神领袖之一, 看来访者对仁波切或KECHARA的印象不错,认为仁波切是灵修与弘扬宗教方面为佼佼者。 看回多年前关于“我们如何禅修”的短片, 仁波切当年和现在依旧不变,都以直接与幽默的方式来传授佛法。希望更多人通过此杂志, 可以更了解佛法的灵活性,并且开始学习佛法。

  84. Pastor Yek Yee on May 11, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I had read through this article few days. I like the way the writer wrote what Rinpoche message. Seems like this writer also enjoy what Rinpoche shared with him. The article is simple and direct.

    The Rinpoche picture in the magazine is so cute and attractive.

  85. Phillis Chin on May 11, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Interesting reading all the misconception of tales, stories and mysteries . Many tends to believe the misconceptions without finding the details to understand it. They choose to believe the many misconceptions following cultural beliefs, rather looking at all corners from information. Most of us do not know about the truth behind it. At one time I do believed King Tut’s tomb had a curse declaring death on anyone who entered it . It is incorrect because based on my faulty thinking and reading it. Its only later with advance technology of laptops and after researched through it I realised the truth. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    A placid, and tranquil place called Tsem Ladrang at Naranthan Nepal is simply the best location. Surrounded by nature’s beauty will be a perfect place for prayers, meditation and retreats. Having beautiful hills and mountain behind the Ladrang, from the Ladrang one could watch sunset in the evenings. That’s wonderful indeed. I do hope I have the opportunity to visit this breath-taking panoramic Ladrang in future. Looking at those pictures tells us all the beautiful, outdoorsy Ladrang with great scenery.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and teachings on butterlamp offerings and the lighting of 1100 butterlamps as well.

    Everyone’s dream home is different. Buying a house is everyone’s dream simply because that is how we have been mentally and socially conditioned. All happiness moments start with family under the roof. Having simple and spacious house surrounding by greenery environment would be wonderful for me.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and thoughts of a dream house.

    Reading this inspiring story tells us more. … how our Guru Tsem Rinpoche through all the odds and struggles to be where he was. Without family and relative ‘s support he had gone through hardship. Rinpoche leaving a comfort zone to a place of hunger and poverty, just for Dharma. Travelling across half the globe from US to India to a new environment all alone just for the love of Dharma . Rinpoche was so determined to continue Dharma no matter what happened.
    To those who knew nothing of Kechara it will say it’s a cult but not me . Coming to Kechara, and meeting Rinpoche it has changed my life . Learning and practicing Dharma from Rinpoche ‘s blog had thought me to be a better person, and spending my life meaningfully. Still learning to improve myself .
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Esquire is an American men’s magazine based in New York City , it has been published by the Hearst Corporation since 1986. Found this old post and realised such an international magazine had interviewed our Guru Tsem Rinpoche long ago. Esquire described our Rinpoche as one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders. That’s true Tsem Rinpoche down to earth very special Lama and founded the Buddhist organization Kechara. We are fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia, showing us the way.

    Women were frequently characterized as second-class citizens those days. There were many notable women who were able to break from societal norms to live the kind of life they chose for themselves. I could tell many women throughout these three eras were not given a chance to outspoken than men. Well those days women were treated as an entirely separate group, regardless of their social status. They had numerous legal, religious, and economic challenges hurdles to go through.
    Reading this inspiring post of famous women ,they deserve at least a worthy mention and not forgotten. I only know the inspiring story of Joan of Arc during my school days. Glad to know more heroines from this post. I am sure there were more throughout the centuries, living as independent women, equal to men. Inspiring indeed how these women standing against the odds and having their own vision . The stories of Lyudmila Pavlichenko the deadliest women and Annie Smith Peck the explorer adventurer and supporter of the women’s suffragette movement stood up well in history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this inspiring sharing.

    In certain parts of China is actually famous for its dog meat consumption. Despite the widespread outcry against the country’s notorious eating habits there’s still restaurants serving dog’s meat.
    Many locals are aware of the obscene cruelty of the animals being killed for their meat. The government is drawing up laws to prohibit the trade of wildlife and protect those animals and safety of its people. So its not surprised when the locals got angry and putting things into their own hands beating the two dog thieves savagely. Angry villager even attacks the two thieves’ car, smashed the car window. Got red handed and beaten badly till the police came. Nowadays locals gave up dogs meats for health reason and they are aware of it. Hope more could be done to safe those dogs.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Inspiring post of a soldier turned Buddhist monk living in remote raw Ural mountains of Russia . With little and much hardship , they never give up feeling happy with their struggles. They managed to build a spiritual community up in the remote mountains. Led by Mikhail Sannikov, now known as Lama Dokshit, a veteran of the USSR’s Afghanistan war . He established a monastery on an isolated mountaintop named Shad Tchup Ling, meaning “place of practice and realisation. The monastery is visited by thousands yearly by tourist and locals.
    But sadly this monastery was built on private lands own by a metallurgical mining company . Since 2016, it has been desired to demolish the Buddhist Shedrub Ling temple on Mount Kachkanar. The Buddhist community have tried many times to legalize the structures. The mining and others have claimed rights to the land. The Buddhist community was asked to leave then. The latest update dated second February 2021 is that the monastery will be under the security of the mining company where the Urals Buddhists are allowed back to the mountain only certain days of the week. May this inspiring monastery up in the mountains continue to flourish and may the mining company not demolished it .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this post reminds me of my first pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai San . Went with my Kecharians brothers and sisters few years back. Great memories indeed, we are so fortunate given the opportunity to visit such holy site of Lord Manjushri and more it’s a pilgrimage.
    Mount Wutai is a sacred mountain, one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Mount Wutai, known as ‘the five terrace mountain’, is the highest in Northern China believed to be the earthly abodes of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Great ….Each peak is inhabited by a different form of Manjushri. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain . From the 1st century AD to the early 20th century many temples have been built on the steep slopes . Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, are really amazing. The beautiful scenery there is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks. What really important is that Mount Wutai have a connection and vast history with many Tibetan lamas. From Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen to China’s most benevolent rulers, Emperor Kangxi .
    Looking through those beautiful pictures tell us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Karen for this wonderful sharing.

    Ullambana is a Buddhist festival celebrated on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar. It is a festival of liberation, as to provide salvation and relief to the ghosts and spirits of the dead. The Buddhist origins of the Ullambana Festival can be traced back to a story that originally came from India. By observing the practice of Ullambana we could liberate the deceased from the three suffering realms and allow the living to enjoy a life of abundance, good fortune and longevity. During this festival, offerings such as light, foods, prayers are made to the spirits of the dead and to the hungry ghosts. On this day, Buddhists offer prayers both to their departed forefathers and to their living parents and elders.
    Great …at Kechara Forest Retreat , Bentong, two powerful and extensive pujas will be performed according to the tradition of Gaden Monastery. We are fortunate this year even though we are not able to attend at KFR , these pujas will be streamed live. The two powerful and extensive pujas is to remove obstacles and generate even more merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Sharon Ong and those who are involved making it possible.

    Sad to see those homeless people and now with the pandemic , it is even more . Thousands of homeless people were housed in temporary shelters during Malaysia’s COVID-19 lockdown . We have to face and accept them they exist every where. Its true that the homeless and the people living on the streets, and many off them much as the thought might create discomfort and uneasiness among many of us. Occasionally, we might come across one sleeping on the pavement, smelly, begging, sitting on pavements with a vacant look in their eyes, walking with a sack and on the lookout for foods. Many have returned to the streets and are now living hand-to-mouth….
    H. E Tsem Rinpoche knows how it is to be homeless as he had experienced homelessness while teenager back in US. Tsem Rinpoche then set up Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to distribute warmed foods from 15 packets to thousands . With many volunteers helping up during the distribution in downtown Kuala Lumpur . Not only serves foods , giving free hair cuts and KSK’s volunteer doctors provide free medical check ups, wound dressings. These are some of the services provided. KSK team has done a wonderful jobs. The homeless deserves a much more caring society. Thanks to KSK team and volunteers , keep it up.
    Thank you Rinpoche and and Pastor Henry for this sharing.

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

    4 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

#kecharafoodbank: In collaboration with Good Shepherd Services (GSS) based in Ipoh, we travelled to Buntong with food rations for 33 families. Some of the food items given include rice, noodles, cooking oil and biscuits; in total, we gave 726kg of food to these beneficiaries from the underprivileged class. We are glad to have been able to contribute, especially to families with children and in poor living conditions. We wish to thank GSS for alerting us about those in need, and we look forward to extending more support in the future together with this not-for-profit organization doing good work. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
