If There Wasn’t Karma

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

If it wasn’t for this horribly little annoying phenomena called KARMA, I would just disrobe, go out every weekend, make lots of friends, party, make stadium loads of money, eat busloads of meat, go be a Hollywood major star, forget all this dharma stuff, no more sadhanas, no more centres, goodbye Tsongkapa, Setrap find another place to get your black tea, tell all the winy losers around me to get lost, all the poor me story tellers to find another victim, Sayonara to Kechara, avoid all teachings, tell my teachers to take a hike, focus on making myself gorgeous and be close to all the whose who’s…probably move back to Hollywood too…and just indulge, indulge and indulge…

    I think many people can get superstitious when thinking about karma, but it makes sense to think of karma more as the creative energy we create through our action. It’s actually a concept which means different things to different people.

    Thank you for the powerful explanation, I had a clear picture and a deeper knowledge what karma means.

    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

    Thank you Rinpoche for always reminding us about the effects of karma. Reminding us in ways that are always so easy for us to understand, telling us to watch our words and actions although there might be no one looking around us. I will remember this dearly controlling my thoughts, speech, and actions to the best I can.

  8. Li Kheng on Jun 16, 2011 at 1:01 am

    Karma is one word describing “what goes around comes around”. It is quite logical and very empowering because we manage the phenomenon that happens in our lives. Karma develops the sense of responsibility towards others and ourselves.

    Therefore, if we are in a state that we do not want to be in, we do not blame others, we take responsibility, we take action and we make the change we want.

    Thank Buddha there is karma!

    Sir: Jesus Christ unquestionably demonstrated His love for every man and woman in the world by voluntarily fulfilling all the ancient prophecies concerning Himself to a “T” from his birth in a a smelly stable to His ministry of healing the hoplessly diseased, raising dead people without making them “zombies” (one was even dead and buried for 4 days). He taught and preached liberating truths at the risk of death by His powerful religious enemies – THEN had the audicity to proclaim that He, Himself was the truth, the Life and the way and that Almighty God was His father! Proof? He dared to give up His life and arose from the dead on the 3rd day afterward and after 40 days ascended into the heavens before above 500 witnesses. Several days before He had said, “I will come again and receive you unto myself. I will not leave you as orphans.” As He ascended two angelic strangers stood before the 500 and said, ” Why do you stand gazing? This same Jesus shall come again in the same manner as He has ascended.”
    What was behind all this? If you are truly sincere and have the integrity you seem to have try reading the 4 Gospels and the book of Acts in the Bible. You will realize then that His life, death, resurrection and ascension to His Father in Heaven was/is for a truly magnificent eternal purpose and plan FOR YOU with no guess-work. Not for some twisted desire for fame did He suffer and die. He LIVES, sir, and sooner or later we all have to deal with that and this includes you and me whether or not we choose to accept it.
    Sincerely hoping your best in life and one to come. – Budd Wicker

    oops I had the wrong idea at first I thought… “gosh I hope if that were true he would still be MY friend…” Then I was thinking of how much fun it would be except… That is a fantasy and Karma exists… And it hurts to receive. Excellent post. Shattering pre-conceptions. Also it taught a valuable lesson because almost everyone agrees that Rinpoche could do all those things if he wished to abandon Dharma.

    So if a Hollywood rich selfish indulgent life cannot be lived by a man who could live that life… if he wanted… That sends a powerful message…

    Haha! nice one Rinpoche! Although it sounds funny at first, but when i read it the second time… it’s very true indeed.

    If there wasn’t Karma… probably nothing will exist, i think…

    The law of karma explain why each individual has a unique mental disposition,a unique physical appearance & unique experience. We cannot find any 2 ppl who have created exactly the same actions of history of actions throughout their past lives. It is because our karma or actions that we are born in this inpure, contaminated world & experience so many difficulties & problems. Actions inpure cos our mind is contaminated by inner poison of self-grasping….fundamental reason why we experience suffering….cos we performed many non-virtuous actions in previous lives. The source of our non-virtuous actions is our own delusions, such as anger, attachment & self-grasping ignorance. Once we have purified our mind of self-grasping & all other delusions…we will find true happiness from within our mind.

  15. Lim Han Nee on Jan 25, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    As Rinpoche says,Karma, the universal law of cause and effect, operates all the time, whether we choose to believe it or not.It has been operating all the time through our countless past lives and will go on operating into all our future lives.

    That being the case, I would rather believe it and take refuge in it.This will make me mindful of my actions. It will lead me to abandon non-virtuous actions which will create causes for suffering and misery for me.It will propel me to engage in virtuous actions which will create causes for my happiness and freedom from suffering.

    Dear Rinpoche

    you have given me plenty to ponder. ^

    As I listen to Rinpoche’s teachings and practice more dharma, I look back to my life and see how karma worked in my life. When I worked selfishly in the past, I attracted many ppl that were selfish towards me. I then was selfish with them and they continued being selfish towards me. I hurt me and they hurt me back and I in turn hurt them more and the vicious cycle continues on and on.
    As i practice dharma and started operating for the benefit of others, I realize I am meeting more ppl that operate for others too. Ppl that are more giving/generous. Although the selfish ppl still do come along, they are less now. This is because our karma takes time to purify and we have spent alot of time accumulating these negative karma. So why not start as soon as possible. As Rinpoche always says, IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
    Thank you Rinpoche for continuing your efforts in sharing your wisdom with us.

    Its like saying when there is no reward/punishment system, why do good?

    This is not morality.

    • tsemtulku on Jan 24, 2011 at 12:26 pm

      It’s not reward or punishment. It is universal process. Karma happens without your belief.

      • thinking on Jan 27, 2011 at 4:56 am

        Thanks for your reply. Perhaps my knowledge on karma is too shallow. But every action can be good or bad if interpreted from different points of view. How can karma then decide which is good and which is bad and from whose perspective?

        I personally think it’s hard to defend absolute morality; but to do so fall into uncertain but perhaps less satisfying relativism.

        Thanks

        • David Lai on Nov 1, 2011 at 1:26 pm

          Dear thinking.

          I just saw your interpretation of karma. Its interesting because karma is a system of cause and effect or action and reaction. It is not a system of judgement like what you have implied. So, nothing is judged, we just reap what we sow. Whether we believe in it or not, we experience it. Some say life is not fair, well we had created the cause for it.

          Hence, the law of karma is the foundation for the possibility of previous and future lives. Hence, causes could have been created in previous lives and what we do in this live creates the cause for future lives. Just observe, some people are born in utter poverty in this life and some live in utter luxury. So who decides this? If its a God, he’s not a fair god. If its karma, it makes a lot more sense and to me, it empowers me to make a change. There’s more to this simple explanation but this is enough for now.

          The law of karma does not answer all questions but it answer almost all of my important questions that I have regarding life. I recommend you to delve deeper into the Buddhist understanding of karma. It will change your whole perspective and eventually change the course of your life if you let it.

  20. SikkiGoh on Jan 23, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Thank you for your kind reminder. I shall continue to apply the dharma in my daily life and transform such that every action of body, speech and mind shall be spontaneously align with the Dharma for the benefits of all sentient beings.

  21. benji on Jan 23, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpochela, for this precious reminder – so many times, i have been tempted, almost gone berserk; but was held back by that sole consideration – don’ t create anymore negative karmic connections (haven’t i suffered enough, from my past bad karmic connections?). Then i also look at my life, and thought, “How inadequate my store of good karmic connections is!”

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

    I like herbal remedies as they work gently and is not as harmful to the body as the pharmaceutical medication. However, I would say that they are more effective as preventive due to their slow nature.
    I used to hear people say food is the best remedy for sickness prevention, when we have proper intake of food, we can stay healthy for long term.Really a informative article.Thank you very much .

    A Mongolian highly respected lama Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Ngawang Nyima of Drepung Gomang Monastic Institution in South India was truly a great teacher of our time. He was a great teacher of the Buddhist doctrine, preserving all the teachings of Tsongkapa’s golden lineage. He was such a kind and warm lama who had invited our lama to stay in Drepung Gomang Monastery. But Rinpoche turned down as Rinpoche had promised to be at Gaden. Rinpoche was touched by his affection, and has invited Rinpoche at any time come to Drepung and update him always. Before going back to Gaden , he even blessed Rinpoche. Amazingly and beautifully of such a meeting of a highly known lama, teacher and well respected by everyone , Rinpoche met. Merely by listening to the teachings of a GREAT lama from the video is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The White Temple of Thailand also known as Wat Rong Khun, which is outside Chiang Rai city. It is one of the most recognizable temple, attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. It is beautiful temple where everything in white colour, even the fishes reared in the ponds also white in colour. Well this temple is very unique as it stands out through the white colour. With the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, looks sparkling in the sun. The white colour signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
    I have visited this amazing White Temple a few years back. Simply amazing. This bizarre-looking white temple located is the brainchild of Chiang Rai-born visual artist and painter Chalermchai Kositpipat. The temple is filled with Buddhist symbolisms, beautiful layout, architecture, all the way to the ornate reliefs and mirror decorations. Worthy visiting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Megnath a student of our Lama and very much devoted to Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. Did a wonderful sharing with his family memevers and friends back in Nepal . He has trusted Dorje Shugden sincerely and his prayers were answered. Very nice of him spreading dharma as well introducing our Powerful Protector Dorje Shugden practice to anyone he come across. Wow…. He even shared to the school children, every student received a picture of Dorje Shugden from him . May those who see the pictures will be blessed. Looking at those pictures in this post tell all.
    Thank you for Rinpoche for this sharing.

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

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

    3 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
