Happy family for Kalachakra

Howell, New Jersey, USA (Route 9)

This was Happy Family Chinese restaurant I used to work at in Howell on route 9. It was taken over by someone else later and renamed Sesame Inn, and was later demolished in 2002.

Dear wonderful blog friends,

In July 1981 a very historic and important event occured in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. I did whatever I can to get there the minute I got wind of it. I really racked my brains to find a way to be there. Well let me explain what happened in this video for you.

I was reading the other day and I remembered this event suddenly so I decided to share with my wonderful blog readers here. I thought I’d let you know what I was trying to do at 15.

Enjoy…

Much Care,
Tsem Rinpoche

 

The video!

Thangka depicting the enlightened King of Shambala (who is a master adept of Kalacakra’s practice) emanating from his Kingdom into the world to bring dharma when ethics decline. It is said those who practice the Kalacakra tantra creates affinity to take rebirth in this enlightened society of Shambala which exists on this planet.

    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

    Dear RInpoche

    This is the first time I watched the video about Rinpoche’s attempt to go to Madison and attended Kalachakra initiation by HH Dalai Lama the 14th. I was very touched with how hard Rinpoche worked to go to that event although at the end, Rinpoche could not go due to lack of parental permission and was very disappointed because of it.

    While listening Rinpoche inspiring story in video, its a precious teaching to us. Rinpoche is truly work hard no matter how to stepping nearer to nearer Rinpoche goals just with main purpose of benefit others by Dharma.

    Thanks Rinpoche for remind us always, we will keep our Guru Samaya as clean possible hence able to help in all Rinpoche projects…

  8. Oya on Jun 27, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    This is so meaningful. “Don’t give up, focus, and you will succeed.” When we bocome dissappointed in ourselves or others it is the point in time to contemplate and encourage oneself towards strengthening resolve to do the right thing, Reaching through the dissappointment towards the truth and not give up on ourselves or others, even if this means we pray for them or ourselves….keep the faith…as they say.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your prior experience to teaching us.Rinpoches’s story inspiring me that although we get fail at start,we do not lose hope,we should go all the way with strong determination,we will achieve the goal finally and we do not hurt others by breaking our promise to them.

  11. Patrick on Mar 23, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Now I finally understand why I was adviced to watch this video and the sentence “your life sounds like Rinpoche´s”. When I wanted to go to my first initiation I was also saving money from birthdays and christmas and I said “I´m not gonna buy games or anything like that this time. I want to get Kriya-Tantra initiation and I want to finally see the one I think of as my precious guru.”

    It was all perfect. I had the money to travel to stay and so on and I thought “Now I can do real practice. I will have a real Tibetan guru and not one of those western yoga-soccer-moms who think of themselves as enlightend cause they drink chai tea all day long.” And I would even meet someone else from the internet who is a practitioner. So I looked for the requirements like Lamrim-practice and so on. I had that and I was really happy.

    Then I was told the other guy can´t make it because Rinpoche says you have to be there for the whole weekend and he couldn´t make it on friday because of a concert. I thought “ok, it´s a bit sad but it´s ok”.

    I read everything about tantra and I also read that there is often taken refuge before the initiation which was one of requirements so I sent them an email to make sure that there was refuge before that. They told me they are happy because I am so honest but there is not. So I looked everywhere for a possibility in taking refuge. No chance until March. I was down. I didn´t know what to do for days. Finally I continued practicing Lamrim thinking “When I´m really good at this I will benefit from the initiation much more next time”.

    So I continued dharma practice and talked to the guy who couldn´t make it either and he always asked me questions: “what are those realms people are talking about ?” “It´s in the lamrim, you should have had to know this at initiation” “what are the 3 types of practitioners ?” “Read the lamrim !” I was always explained to him after that but I started to get angry. Then he started talking “oh Rinpoche is traveling so much and he´s so old. I hope he doesn´t die until I have initiations” I got really mad and thought “Don´t you dare to talk my Rinpoche into the grave !” His name and dead are simply not supposed to be used in the same sentence for me.

    And after all that mess he was still able to top it. He went there, knowing nothing about lamrim, got the initiation and started complaining about how poor the sadna and the explanations are.

    I´m admiring that guru very much cause I seem to have a strong karmic relationship with him. I already explained that in the chat. When I saw his picture I thought “you´ve seen him before. He´s very nice and he can teach (or taught, this got somehow mixed in my mind) you a lot). Until today he did not see me or hear from me because you can´t simply contact him. He´s always traveling and so on.
    So I know how Tsem Rinpoche feels although he had much more practice than me at that moment and was much more able and supposed to get the initiation.

    Whenever I read or hear about Rinpoche’s life, it will always tell me that there are signs for things that are happening to us. Facts about somethings that science just can’t explain.

    This story has helped to straighten out some thoughts that I had, and understand the way of life even better. Like how are some obstacles placed in our life, why we would not be able to do something even though we have so much faith and determination in doing so.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing something so personal to all of us, helping us to clear our minds.

  13. henry ooi on Mar 14, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    I guess like with most people, I have made promises I did not keep and in return received the same from others as a form of retribution. Of late, Rinpoche has been giving teachings and talks on developing integrity. I take this as the fundamental necessity for me to pursue and practice dharma.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, please live long.

  14. Felix Kong on Mar 13, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing short teaching. This video inspire me that how important of ” PROMISE ” ,if we keep broken promises and at the end will hurt someone, they don’t trust us anymore.

    I will keep remind myself to prevent this pain experience happen on me.

  15. Wah Ying on Mar 12, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    When I heard the part on Rinpoche’s parents finally decided not to let Rinpoche go for the initiation and teaching, and he was saddened on the decision. I was like I am the kid, the kid that cry and cry, and disappointed because people broke their promise to me…It hurts so much even just listening to the story that passed so many years ago, even I am not the victim.

    I will remember this experience, remember not to break my promise so to avoid people we love or who love us being hurt.

    I will remember the this words as well: “You may not always get what you really want at the time you want it, don’t give up hope, don’t dispair to the point that you ruin your future chances, keep up the hope, work towards it, make the determination strong, focus and achieve it because it can be achieved”, whenever I am low in energy and going to give up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching.

  16. patsy on Mar 12, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    The disappointment and broken promises that Rinpoche had to endure as a teenager is truly disheartening. However that despair and painful experiences did not deter Rinpoche to pursue the passion for dharma.

    Rinpoche’s real life experience of hardship for dharma is truly inspiring. We must not lose faith or let our disappointment dragged us down, but to push forth to achieve our goals.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for giving us that inspiration to move on and never give up no matter how big the obstacles are.

  17. Jean Mei on Mar 11, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    This is probably one of the best videos I’ve ever watched! It was captivating, and it touched upon an intimate time in Rinpoche’s life.

    There was one part, Rinpoche mentioned that while listening to Rinpoche’s parents talking back and forth from outside the hallway, Rinpoche was chanting Palden Lhamo’s mantra, whilst wishing that Rinpoche’s parent’s mind would turn and allow Rinpoche to go for the initiation.

    I think that many people pray for something while praying, and when they don’t get their desired outcome, they blame or lose faith in their protector – or in the Dharma altogether.

    Unfazed, a few months later, Rinpoche ran away from home to pursue the Dharma all the way.

    This story serves as a great teaching to never lose faith, but to instead continue, be determined and persevere on your spiritual path.

    How Rinpoche told the story was extremely eloquent, to the point where I could “watch” a movie play in my head. I could imagine Rinpoche as a young child sitting outside Rinpoche’s parents door listening to the conversation back and forth… picking up the plates at the Chinese restaurant… speaking to Carmen (Ani-la Thubten Chonyid) and her saying that she will top up any shortfall of the traveling costs…

    I could feel Rinpoche’s determination when Rinpoche’s parents said that it was OK to go for the Kalachakra initiation if Rinpoche could raise the money.. the overwhelming sense of sadness when the news broke… the devastation Rinpoche felt of the broken promise…

    Such a good story to listen to. AWESOME stuff.

    Thank you for sharing this story Rinpoche. For taking the time to video the story, blog about it and to share it on Facebook

  18. joey wong on Mar 11, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    thank you for the very heartfelt story that Rinpoche has shared with us, a very personal angle of Rinpoche’s life. In an environment where promises are broken almost on a daily basis, i believe that many people of my generation are just numb to broken promises and hence most of them tend to do it to others without even noticing in the first place. Broken promises are very damaging to anyone especially to children.

    Rinpoche’s perseverance in the Dharma, even though Rinpoche was not allowed to practice and had to deal with unsupportive parents and Rinpoche actually worked for the money to go there only to be turned down…it must have been a painful experience but instead of choosing to let the pain hurt others Rinpoche did something positive with it and it does touch me very much

  19. Erickksiow on Mar 10, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    Good to know more about Rinpoche childhood story and how Rinpoche craving for Dharma during young ages, in the story, Rinpoche always remind us to be integrity, never give empty promise or words to others.

    ( Wish everyone like Rinpoche, to receive a Dharma in very young age )

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  20. Sock Wan on Mar 10, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving this teaching to us.

    Few things I have learned:
    1. If we do not get what we want when we want it, do not lose hope, be persistent and determined, we will achieve our goal eventually. Most of us give up easily, we have to train ourselves to have strong will and work hard for the thing we want.

    2. Keep our promises. We hurt people when we do not keep our promises. Therefore, do not just make promises lightly, especially to children.

    3. For Dharma, Rinpoche went all the way even though he was only a 15 year old boy. Rinpoche put down his ego to ask for a job from the restaurant, it must be due to Rinpoche’s sincerity, the owner gave him a job.

    Rinpoche once again is using his personal experience to tell us if we are persistent, determined, go all the way, we will get the result. If Dharma has helped Rinpoche to get out of difficulties, to move on in life, to be a person who benefits so many people, Dharma can do the same to us too. No matter what happens, DO NOT give Dharma up!

  21. David Lai on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    This is a wonderful recollection of Rinpoche’s childhood passion and it is really neat that Rinpoche is able to share with us and the amazing fact that Rinpoche remembers so much detail. I think Rinpoche is amazing in the fact that Rinpoche had always been consistent from then till today. It seems that Rinpoche’s passion for Dharma was not from this life because at such a young age, Rinpoche already had this in him.

    Being in America, Buddhist influence is at its weakest and yet it has taken root in Rinpoche’s heart right from a very young tender age. This is a typical sign of a Tulku, or a reincarnation of a great Tibetan master. There’s no way, that could have been implanted in Rinpoche’s mind because his parents were totally against him practicing so intensely. That in itself shows how deep is Rinpoche’s conviction is and this along with the amount of obstacles Rinpoche went through to practice the Dharma. This makes every story of Rinpoche’s childhood and coming of age, a Dharma inspiration.

  22. Lim Han Nee on Mar 10, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    When one door is closed, another will be opened. We can make this happen by indomitable will and determination.That is what Rinpoche show us in this most touching and inspiring story.

    For Rinpoche , the goal has always been Dharma. At the young age of 15, Rinpoche already wanted Dharma so much. He was willing to work so hard daily at the Happy Restaurant so as to be able to have enough money to go for HH Dalai Lama’s Kalachakra empowerment and initiation.

    Then came the greatest most heartbreaking disappointment , when his parents refused to go with him and he couldn’t go without being accompanied by them.This breaking of a promise by his parents affected Rinpoche deeply.

    From this story, comes two powerful teachings. One is that keeping a promise is most important. When you break a promise, the hurt you cause goes so deep that it leaves an indelible mark. It makes a strong dent on the other person’s respect of you. It is also a matter of integrity.

    The second teaching is that one must not lose one’s determination to achieve one’s goal(especially when the goal is Dharma), even if one’s hopes had been dashed after having put all of one’s efforts(as Rinpoche had done)into it.

    Rinpoche said “one thing led to another”,and it was the same year that he left New Jersey to go to Los Angeles and in LA he met Zong Rinpoche. He also met HH Dalai Lama and later he was ordained. To me, all this followed in due cause(as Rinpoche had wanted)because Rinpoche had not let his disappointment overwhelm him and he had just kept “his chin up” and determination going.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this lovely story.

  23. Low ksjb on Mar 10, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche. Your story was very inspiring as you have very strong determination to learn Dharma and you would do almost anything to get the chance to attain it.Most of us would just give up even at the thought of the obstacle of the distance to reach there and some of us would just procrastinate to get it even it was within reach.
    When someone disappoint you in breaking their promise you would not bear grudge but know how to and when to let go.If all of us could do this, then we would know how to handle our disappointment and frustration better.
    Thank you for the reminder Rinpoche,we should think positively in all situation and treat others what we would like others to do onto us.

  24. Jay Jae on Mar 10, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Rinpoche has really went through a great deal in order to receive the Dharma let alone practice with the freedom at home. In this case, for Rinpoche to even go for the Kalachakra initiation, we hear from Rinpoche how much effort and hard work he has to go through in order to attend Dharma or to associate anything to do with the Dharma.

    For some of us, going to the Dharma centre is a drag in our lives that we put the Dharma and anything associated with it very far away from our first priority. But in life we do have our aims which we wanna achieve and we come by many obstacles which will dishearten us over time. It is normal that we meet with obstacles from time to time, whether in Dharma or no Dharma, as long as we are in this cyclic existence, we will have obstacles and sufferings.

    Rinpoche’s message here is very clear and encouraging. No matter what comes in our way, we should always look into the solution and not give up hope. Rinpoche did it and not only did he get to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama but also receive ordination vows from Him. It was due to the kindness of HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and Rinpoche’s guru devotion towards his Lamas that makes us who we are today.

    Hence, if you are feeling a lil down or disappointed, focus on the end result and work your way through it. Rinpoche says you can!

  25. Paris on Mar 10, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    Rinpoche,
    Thank you for these spontaneous and very personal teachings. It is incredible to always hear of how strong Rinpoche’s drive for Dharma was, even in the face of so many difficult challenges and opposition from the people who were closest to him, his family.

    Some of us had the fortune to visit New Jersey and meet some of the family and friends that Rinpoche grew up with. Consistently, they all said the same thing, which is that no matter what Rinpoche was going through at home nobody ever knew about it because Rinpoche would never let anyone know. He always focused outwards, to find ways to make others (his relatives, his friends) happy; he would joke and play and find ways to help them as best he could. So they would never, ever have known how sad things were back at home for him. In fact, it was a surprise for many to hear from us, so many years later, the extent of how bad things were for him at home, with his parents. They would never have known all those years that they were growing up.

    So it is very true what Martin had said above: “But instead of remaining sore about a bad experience, Rinpoche turned that into a decision not for others to experience the same painful disappointment and to always keep promises.” This is exactly what Rinpoche has done, especially for his students, to ensure that they are able to receive Dharma always and that any disagreements between their families and partners are quickly mended. Whatever Rinpoche did not have, he makes sure his students have.

    • David Lai on May 14, 2013 at 1:25 pm

      Thanks for sharing this Paris,

      It’s always amazing to hear rinpoche talk of his prior experience and also of people who knew him as he was growing up. They paint a very poignant portrait of Rinpoche, of struggles, sadness and transcendence. The amazing part of Rinpoche is that he never wavered in his determination despite all that he had experienced.

      I can see now that whatever immense success that Kechara, his students and Rinpoche experience today is a result of this years of privation. I am sure Rinpoche himself knows this himself. Due to his spiritual practices, Rinpoche would probably have lots of intuition and feelings about the future and what is to come. He has molded his actions so he would be able to benefit as much people as possible. His story is what one would understand as an authentic Tulku incarnation, one that is born to benefit others. A true spiritual and Dharmic lion amongst men!

  26. jimmy tan on Mar 10, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    感谢仁波切与我们分享您的珍贵经验和您那种对佛法的认真态度。从中也让我感到守承诺的重要性。感谢您给与我们无限的启发和教导。

  27. Joy on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    It is amazing that Rinpoche can do everything and anything at the very young age to actually go for Dharma teachings. What is inspiring is that although Rinpoche was only 15, Rinpoche could think so Dhamically and had the strong will to do all he could to attend His Holiness Dharma teachings on Kalachakra, although only to be crushed and disappointed when a promise was broken by his parents. I know for sure I would be crushed as well, because there we many times when I was a kid and I asked something of my parents but was rejected. I can imagine Rinpoche’s pain at 15 how it would have hurt him, plus it was such a big wish and a Dharmic one.

    When we were 15 what were we doing? We were still playing and trying to pass our exams was all we thought about.

    Everytime Rinpoche shares with us his pass, his experiences, we can see it was always revolved around Dharma, always something to do with Dharma activities, motivations and the yearning to be close to Dharma is so strong. This only proves that Rinpoche’s Dharma imprints are very strong and of no ordinary. Rinpoche definitely have practiced in many of his previous lives to have such a strong passion for Dharma… so this proves that if we practice well now… our imprints will naturally be there in the next as well. And if we keep doing it, it can only get stronger. Hence this is why Rinpoche always ask us to do our dedications to always be close to the Dharma, Lama and never be parted from it life after life… may we seek the Dharma and practice at a very young age.

  28. abby f on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    What impressed me the most in Rinpoche’s sharing is how much faith Rinpoche has to Dharma protectors since He was a kid!

    Like what Rinpoche told in this video, when His parents were discussing whether to let Rinpoche go to the Kalachakra initiation, Rinpoche was sitting in the dark, trying to listen what His parents were discussing, and Rinpoche kept chanting Palden Lhamo’s mantra, seeking help from Palden Lhama to go to the Kalachakra initiation. Rinpoche was matured at that young age and definitely Rinpoche has very very strong Dharma imprints to know to seek help from the Dharma protector!

    For Dharma, Rinpoche would do everything. When Rinpoche went to the Happy Family restaurant, Rinpoche just asked for a job and just did it. He earned the money Himself to go to the initiation, He was so determined to make it even thought he was only 15 at that time!

    Rinpoche explained before what is a Tulku. Tulku is the one who reincarnates back to do Dharma, and how we know a person is a real high Tulku? We see how compassionate, perseverance, generous, kind, etc he/she is, and also how much Guru devotion he/she has for their Guru.

    To me, Tsem Rinpoche definitely is a high Tulku. Rinpoche craved for Dharma when He was a kid! Most of us craved for food/sweets/ice-cream when we were kid. This shows everything. But this should not stop us for doing more Dharma, because we can d it now and we create the causes for our future lives to continue to do more Dharma and crave for Dharma since young age. 🙂

  29. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 10, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Whenever I had the opportunity to listen to Rinpoche’s story, I feel deep sense of respect for what Rinpoche’s determination and this inspires and motivates me.

    I feel that this video carries two important messages, One is about ‘Promises’ and Second about ‘Holding on to our dreams’.

    About the first topic, it certainly is so easy to just say out some words not having to think about what one needs to be responsible for later. Promises always sound very good at the beginning, but breaking them makes others’ works a lot more difficult because someone else have to take up our shares and this makes us lose respect. Promises are certainly something that one needs to think about seriously before saying yes.

    Perhaps Rinpoche’s inability to attend Kalacakra initiation was something that was in Buddha’s plan, because this led you to eventually leave your family and joined a Dharma centre and so that you could really concentrate on what you really love doing. Or, maybe we may say, life is a box of chocolates, we do not know which one we are going to pick.

    Thank you too for Rinpoche’s ending speech about not losing hope. This is encouraging for all those who need it.

  30. Adrian Chow on Mar 10, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short story and teaching. From the clip i understand that determination is the ‘KEY’ to success in order to lead us to our goals. Not many will understand Rinpoche’s goal especially when Rinpoche’s ambition is to excel in the Dharma.

    Rinpoche’s determination will inspire thousands who is following. Thank you Rinpoche.

  31. Sheryl Chew on Mar 10, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Thank you Rinpoche. I always enjoy listening to your teachings and sharings as it gave me a lot of encouragement whenever I feel down. I totally agree on the importance of keeping our promises and if we want to acheive something, we should not give up so easily.

  32. mima on Mar 10, 2013 at 6:55 am

    Michele Marie Thank you so much for this story Rinpoche, which is teaching us quite a few lessons. An important one is to keep our promises and how damaging and hurtful it can be if we do not follow our words. Another lesson is no matter what happen, keep doing our best surrendering with patience until we succeed with our goals. Rinpoche strong determination to Dharma work is very inspiring…no one can stop Rinpoche to do his dharma work, no giving up when time gets hard…Thank you for being such an inspiring example and talking the time to help us with this precious story…infinite gratitude always!

  33. dash on Mar 10, 2013 at 5:56 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  34. Martin on Mar 10, 2013 at 5:06 am

    That event and disappointment had such an impact on Rinpoche that he remembers it till this day. But instead of remaining sore about a bad experience, Rinpoche turned that into a decision not for others to experience the same painful disappointment and to always keep promises.

    I could feel Rinpoche’s desperation in wanting to go for the initiation and when it dawned on him that his parents were not going to change their minds, Rinpoche just collapsed into his pillow. The way Rinpoche recounts the story, the anguish was palpable. We have all been in similar situations where we had worked so hard towards something and wished intensely for it, but for some reason didn’t get it. But not everyone comes out of despair with even more determination to attain that goal and at the same time not be bitter about it. Most would just give up, pretend to ignore it as it eats away at them inside. Again, a painful situation was transformed into positive energy and stronger determination. In the end, this determination contributed to Rinpoche leaving home to pursue monk-hood.

    This is a very inspiring story especially for us who know Rinpoche’s history and it is a reminder that we cannot give up if we are sincere about something. That if we keep pursuing a good goal, we create causes for it to happen.

    Whenever I read about Rinpoche’s childhood, it always reaffirms to me that imprints exists, our past lives exists, what we do strongly in our past life will directly affect what we will feel more inclined strongly in this present life. And that the mind, no matter what others say, is a continuum.

    Why do I say so and why does reading about Rinpoche’s life back in NJ really prove this? Well, all I need to do is think back on what I was doing when I was 15, and think what Rinpoche have been doing since he was even younger… The Dharmic imprints in Rinpoche is so strong that I believe it is through Rinpoche’s compassion for the previous life that Rinpoche decided to reincarnate in this state inorder to show us as a living example: Hey Reincarnation exists! and if you keep doing what you’re doing now, that’s what you’ll get in your next life.

    I really enjoyed listening to Rinpoche’s story and short teachings thank you for sharing. I really wish Rinpoche was able to attend the initiation that too would have been a really wonderful story to hear. I’ve done part time jobs as a waiter or a busboy and it is really hard work, and it requires a lot of patience sometimes when you get really nasty customers, but I’m sure none of that would have stopped Rinpoche from achieving his goal.

    Rinpoche’s story is really inspiring for me to work hard for my goals and keep up the hope. I get really discouraged easily but hearing Rinpoche’s short teaching would no always remind me not to give up.

    “You may not always get what you really want at the time you want it, dont give up hope, don’t dispair to the point that you ruin your future chances, keep up the hope, work towards it, make the determination strong, focus and achieve it cause it can be achieved.”

    I don’t like hearing false promises from people too, it really hurts and disappoints to the point where you would sometimes lose respect and trust in that person. You always want some one to keep their promises so it should be the reiterated back towards others. I try to always keep my promises and when I can’t I make sure I make up for it rather than just apologise and not do anything. But I have to admit, I don’t have a strong mind so my mind slips very easily. I really hope to continue to keep my promises I make to people.

    Thank you again for sharing your story and short teachings Rinpoche, it was very refreshing to listen to.

    Hope Rinpoche is well.

    A Lost Underwater City Has Been Found 1,700 Years After It Sank

    How interesting! An archaeological find under the sea. A city lost for 1,700 years and now a city teeming with marine life. It must have been a grand city with what the remains look like. Find out more here:

    The Puja of Following an Enlightened Being’s Advice

    Pujas work in two ways, both dealing with karma. Karma is the ultimate cause for the circumstance, which we need to change, to arise. Read more about it here:

    Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Explosive Special Message

    From watching the Karmapa’s special video message, it is apparent that he is deeply unhappy and even alludes to the fact that he is preparing to step down as the Karmapa. During his 37-minute-long speech, he expressed grievances and frustration at his current situation and the negative acts of his previous changtsos (attendants), in an honest declaration. It almost appears as though he has lost confidence in those around him due to their behaviour. Moreover, although his followers believe him to possess the same attainments as his predecessors, he says he feels like an ordinary practitioner of the Buddhist path, which could be an indication of his humility or a sign that he is genuinely very unhappy.

    Reuters covers international Dorje Shugden conference 2018

    This Reuters article brings with it a message of peace and reconciliation and drives home the point that Dorje Shugden practice is not motivated by political agendas nor has it ever been. In fact, the practice has a rich history spanning the last 400 years and has benefited people greatly on their spiritual paths to become better and more compassionate citizens of the world. All we want is to see this trend continue.

    Thank you for this sharing and the advice that should we encounter a spirit, the rule of thumb is not to interact with or ask spirits for help or any type of assistance. As spirit is part of the six realms, there is a limitation to their clairvoyance. Plus, spirits, who are unenlightened, like us, also possess temperament and characteristic. Some of them might be ill nature and hence their assistance or advice will come at a price.

    Reuters publishes my thoughts on Tibetan self-immolation

    There had been over 150 self-immolation in Tibet due to the Tibetan Cause, Tibetan wishing to regain their country from China. However, after 60 years of occupancy, China is now the accepted sovereign and as such what is the point of self-immolation that brings no change? Find out what Rinpoche has to say that Reuters, an international media publications felt important to publish.

    Dorje Shugden arose as a Dharma protector during the 5th Dalai Lama’s time. In the beginning, the 5th Dalai Lama thought Dorje Shugden was an evil spirit. But after many failed attempts to destroy and subdue Dorje Shugden, he realised Dorje Shugden is, in fact, an emanation of Buddha Manjushri. He then wrote this propitiation prayer to Dorje Shugden for everyone to use. This is just one of the many prayers written to Dorje Shugden by high lamas. We may recite it to invoke the powerful energy of Dorje Shugden for protection and blessings.

    In Tibetan Buddhism, there are many practices for us to do to solve our problems. There are practices for good health, for wealth, for purification, removal of obstacles and many more. The Eye Clearing Avalokiteshvara practice helps us to remove the ignorance and also helps us to relieve eye ailments. In addition, by doing this practice we can obtain the special clairvoyant eye of seeing.

    When we talk about Tibet, the first thing that comes to our mind is the snow mountain and also Buddhism. Due to its geographical location, Tibet was quite isolated until the 1950s. However, some western travellers managed to visit Tibet and had taken some very rare and beautiful videos of the old Tibet. Take a look and enjoy!

    Totally agree that we should have our house or whatever space such as office , new buildings and so forth to be blessed with positive energies into our lives. There are a number of prayers and resources for blessing our home and space. By doing Dorje Shugden Pujas are one such extremely powerful method to imbue the space with love, harmony, health, happiness, and prosperity as a beginning of a New Year or any other day. Dorje Shugden’s sacred prayers, powerful mantras, chanting and melodies will cleanse the space of negativity and invite positive energies. This blessing prayer will bless us with protection, harmony, with love and happiness in all circumstances.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful advice for us .

    This statue is magnificent. Big outdoor Buddha statue has a lot of benefits to the entire area where the statue is built on and also all the sentient beings that is around that statue. In history, there are large outdoor Buddhas that were built specifically to calm the area down. Areas that are prone to accidents or natural disasters are recommended to have a large Buddha statue to calm the land and also the unseen beings around that area.

    Leishan Giant Buddha is one of the examples of an outdoor Buddha statue that is purposely created to calm the environment down. The Buddha statue is carved from a cliff and it depicts Maitreya Buddha who is very popular in China. The statue overlooks a river which has turbulent waters that caused alot of problem for shipping vessels that travels down the river. After the Buddha statue is being made, the water of the river did calm down. This is just one of the examples.

    Large outdoor Buddha statues are also built to bless the sentient beings that reside in that area. Humans or animals that can see the statue will be planted with Dharmic imprints that will benefit them in their future lives when they are triggered. Unseen beings around the area will also be blessed and pacified by the Buddha statue. That is why having a large outdoor Buddha statue is very beneficial.

    Failure is not something to be ashamed of. If we fail, we just continue to find different ways to try. If we persist, we will be successful one day. If we are afraid to fail and try to avoid failure, we will end up not doing anything and at the end of the day, we will not achieve anything in our life. As a result, we will become bitter and unhappy. Therefore, be brave, don’t be afraid to try, find ways to succeed, not to fail.

    When highly attained Buddhist masters pass away, they are able to stay in meditation for days some for years. During this period, their bodies show no sign of decomposition, their limbs are not stiff and their flesh is still soft. Lama Itigilov was exhumed 75 years after his passing and his body shows no sign of decomposition, how amazing!

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.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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

“Food is the only thing that I have been longing for” - a single mother of two who currently living in Kuala Lumpur city. She mentioned that getting surplus food is not a matter of ignorance but a matter of not being able to afford “fresh” food. This is because when it comes to distributing salary, there are things such as house rental and utility fees that have to come before food. With welfare reforms, benefits being cut and sanctions, this marginalised community find themselves looking for a way to get through another day. #Kechara #foodbank #urbanpoor - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
