Karma Relaxes

May 29, 2011 | Views: 760

I grew up in this house in Howell, New Jersey. The house is still there. I left this place at 15 to hitch-hike to California to practice Dharma freely without constraints.

I cannot comment on other religions, but before we conclude so easily on karma, its effects, how it comes, goes and latent karma, dormant karma, you study first. Study the texts on karma and how Buddha describes it for us. It will be much easier to apply to this situation and every situation in your life.

People should go online and listen to the YouTube teachings where His Holiness Dalai Lama has explained karma. It is an eye opener. Do a google search, find and study, read and learn. Make an effort…Take 2-3 years to study the vast teachings of Buddha thoroughly and then debate, discuss and recommend.

Buddhism is the religion I was born into, but I didn’t accept it because I was born into it…but I studied for the last 30 years. I was very lucky to live in Howell, New Jersey nearby one of the greatest living masters of this century (Kensur Lobsang Tharchin) at Rashi Gempil Ling on East 5th Street. This great master even spoke English. I, along with a group of students and some Kalmucks took the time, went there to listen to the discourses and learnt about my religion more. I didn’t want to just pray and I did not want to be swallowed up by the thoughts of mainstream Americans. I do not want to just repeat what mainstream Americans believed in because I have my own heritage, I thought at the time. Nothing wrong with Americans, but I am Kalmuck-Mongol-Tibetan. I have an identity, my forefathers have a deep religious doctrine they brought to America, and I needed to search into my roots, my religion and who I was…I started by studying as a young boy in Rashi Gempil Ling.

Now I accept Buddhism NOT BECAUSE it is my cultural roots, but due to decades of study, contemplation and investigation, I found it quite logical, sensible and it fits me. Especially the doctrine on Karma. It explains SO MUCH. Everyone would be amazed. It puts your mind at rest, answer so many questions, and enough to be at rest with.

    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

    Literally, we all know karma is the law of cause and effect in the ethical realm. Karma applies to all sentient beings without prejudice. We are responsible for our own actions. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell as well.

    The topic karma itself is a profound Buddha’s teachings where everyone should study and contemplate. Many of us believe in Karma which is true. Only when we gain deeper realization or perhaps have a taste before the power of karma that brings huge impact in our life, our mind would transform tremendously.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short article about Buddhism and Karma. My grandparents until my parents’ generation are Taoist and we just follow what they do and pray which we do not know the deeper meaning to it. My sister and I were fortunate to come to know about Kechara and Rinpoche through Kin Hoe and Wai Meng. The way Rinpoche explains Buddhism does make sense as Rinpoche always give real life examples which we can relate to it. I myself have gone through some issues and I think it is better for us to accept it as our karma rather than blaming why is this happening me? By accepting things as karma, our mind will be at peace.

    With folded palms,

    I was born a buddism but due to my work commitment working i did not got the chance to read buddism books till my retirement.a few years back.I am lucky to come across Kechara Kitchen Soup on social media and got to know about Tsem Rinpoche blog in a google search.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bring Buddism to Malaysia .May Rinpoche be healthy always and live long to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefits more sentient beings.

    I was brought up in a Buddhist family, automatically I’m one of them. I was sent to Buddhist centre on weekends to attend dharma classes and to learn how to chant mantra (Heart Sutra) at the age of 4. I did not have much thoughts about what I was doing at that time, but I don’t hate it and I feel okay about it. I learned about Karma by reading a “Karma book” which there are graphics that show one action of our in this life will lead to its’ consequences in our next life. For instance, we kill a chicken for food, the chicken we killed will find his way back to us later and this process go on and on, an endless process.

    Coming back to my path to be Buddhist, I was learning with the Buddhist centre until the age of 12. I’ve dropped from learning about Buddhism since then, but I’ve my own principle as a Buddhist which is to follow the The Five Precepts/ Virtues to abstain from harming living beings, stealing, sexual misconduct, lying and intoxication.

    Then I went on with life until 2 years ago(2015), I got to know about Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche, my thought about being a Buddhist changed, I’m capable to do more to benefit not only myself but sentient beings around me. And yes, Buddhism is logical and sensible but some of the teachings are just too profound that extra times & efforts need to be insert to understand and then apply it in our lives.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Since young Buddhism is the only religion that attracts me. I had been to churches and temples but they just don’t feel right to me. When I started to learn dharma 2 years ago, Karma makes so much sense to me. I really do believe in karma a lot. It explains the questions that i have and really stood out from the other religions.

    I am so lucky to be born into an environment that i am still able to practice dharma. When i look around, many people around me are unable to practice dharma due to their commitments and environment. Hence, their life will be without dharma until the day they move on to their next time. It is very sad as Pastor Han Nee had once said: ” Those who died without dharma is the same as a stray dog died at a back alley”. I am fortunate to be reborn near dharma and have the merits to connect to it. I have to strive to plant more dharmic seeds for me to connect to dharma in my next life.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    Thanks Rinpoche for not only accept Buddhism but also bring Buddhism and holy Dharma to beautiful Malaysia hence we able to meet and receive Rinpoche teaching in Malaysia.

    May Rinpoche long life, stable health and continue turn the wheel of Dharma…

    Thank you so much for bringing Dharma to us. Buddhism is such a wonderful religion that i am still learning now…

    Whatever we have learned will be outdated and replaced by something new or better, the worldly knowledge always get updated and current knowledge become old knowledge. People spend vast amount of time and effort to equip with new knowledge, new ways of doing things. On the other hand Dharma remains the same, it is timeless. It is also irreplaceable. The time and effort spend to learn and practice Dharma will stay with us and usable even we become old.

  12. Irene Lim on Jun 6, 2011 at 10:44 am

    It is so true, Karma is logical and sensible. We are but our own karma, our own creation. At the same time liberation is in our own hands too! And Buddha has shown us the way to go. What is left is our tenacity to follow.

    I was baptised when I was one month old, my mum is a Christian and she took me for the ceremony. I was educated in a Christian school since young but had never been interested in the bible and would always like to argue with the teacher during bible class. I always questioned while there was only one mighty God. And if God loves all his children, then why God does not give every single one of us an equal start….

    And the wisemen at the church would tell me then this is becasue God loves those and want them to be stronger and so the challenges are bestowed on them. I wonder then why God not do the same to everyone??? Since God loves all…..I was never satisfied with the answers from these wisemen then.

    Then when I met Tsem Rinpoche some ten years ago, all the years of doubts, confusions, and un-answered questions were lifted during one of his teachings on karma and merits.

    I clicked instantly and felt much affinity on the logic behind buddha’s teachings. If one wants to be reminded of karmic consequences, the “wheel of sharp weapons” is a very good read.

    Like what David said above, Buddhism is very practical and offers a lot of tools and means for self reflection and improvement.

    I like the following quotes form Albert Einstein and would like to share with you all :

    “Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spritual; and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.” -Albert Einstein

    “If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” -Albert Einstein

  14. David Lai on May 30, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Both my parents practiced different religions. My father is Buddhist while my mother is a Christian. When i was growing up, I was brought to Sunday mass at the Church and eventually I went through all the Christian rites of initiation.

    I first came across Buddhism through the many free distribution booklets my dad brought back from the Thai temple in Jalan Gasing. The chief monk of another Theravaden temple, Ven Dharmananda wrote prolifically. However, due to my age, I couldn’t relate nor understand many of the concepts defined by this great monk. At this time, I found Buddhism spartan and technical. Nevertheless, I found it to be intriguing. I only rediscovered Buddhism when I attended a talk by Tsem Rinpoche. It answered so many questions, doubts and opened my mind up to much possibilities.

    Buddhism is very practical and it offers a lot of tools for self-reflection and self-improvement. I am not the best proponent of it but I do see and I get inspired by many who have embraced it, found meaning and have made tremendous strides in it. Thank you Rinpoche for the Dharma.

    You are right about studying, I agree.I am currently reading Liberation in the palm of your hand and I am so happy cause with every page I understand more, and after 2 or 3 weeks , if yo go back on what you read you understand even more …
    You are saying that you do not acccept Buddhism because of Your cultural roots but because of study , contemplation and investigation; still, I think there is also the affinity, which in the beginning when one is not very much aware presents itself as attraction; so, I think it is fair to say that it is a cobination of bouth affinity and study.
    Keep being the inspiration You are,

  16. Sandy on May 29, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I feel very much the same with Buddhism. I grew up in an environment where religion wasn’t really practised at all. At school we learned about God and I attended Sunday school for a while, but it all felt like simply going through the motions. I don’t think I’ve ever attended an actual church service. In the end though, I was put off religion because of the lack of clear explanations, and also because of the idiotic conflict, divisions and violence that occurred between protestants and catholics.

    But I was always fascinated by spirituality (though, I didn’t know that’s what it was, when I was younger) and always believed there was much more to life than people saw and experienced around them. I studied Christianity, and briefly Islam and Hinduism, but these, for me, had something missing – holes were too easily picked in places.

    When I studied Buddhism, it seemed straight-forward. Anything I contemplated or put into practice straight away, the expected conclusions and results were there. There are elements of Buddhism that don’t resonate with me (mainly the esoteric practices and rituals – but that’s simply a cultural difference), but the teachings of Buddha are very simple, very easy to understand and extremely clear.

    What I like most about the Buddha’s teachings are his encouragements to always investigate for yourself and take whatever works for you (Kalama Sutta). The freedom that exists in Buddhism, with respect to other religions, seems to lack in others. There is no “you must…” but only, “here is why…check for yourself…”

    I feel very fortunate to have found your teachings online and find inspiration through them to establish roots in Buddhism in the hope that I can continue to better myself through application of Buddha’s teachings. I agree with the Dalai Lama – religion isn’t essential, but as you’ve said, it’s possible to learn to drive without an instructor – eventually you get there – but you’ll learn to drive far quicker if you have someone there to guide you along.

    For all that you’ve done, Rinpoche, I’ll always be grateful. I’m also grateful for those great masters who passed the teachings onto you, and also to the great masters from all the traditions and lineages (such as Ven. Ajahn Chah and Thich Nhat Hanh) who have helped spread the Dharma to many people and continue to do so.

    Kind regards,
    Sandy

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share such extensive information on this sacred Dorje Shugden chapel in Lhasa.

    This chapel is the proof of the Dorje Shugden ban being illogical and unreasonable. The Great 5th Dalai Lama who has the same mindstream of the 14th Dalai Lama is the emanation of the Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig. He accepted Dorje Shugden as an enlightened being and enthroned him as a protector in this chapel. He also handmade the first Dorje Shugden statue in the entire world. This showed the Great 5th Dalai Lama’s reverence to this protector and he is definitely not a small insignificant protector.

    No small insignificant protector will get an entire chapel dedicated to him by the Great 5th Dalai Lama. The 14th Dalai Lama banned the practice saying that he realizes the nature of the practice now and he is not aware of it last time. This is illogical because how can a mere spirit fool a fully enlightened Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig?

    If we accept that explanation, we are disrespecting all the Buddhas and their clairvoyant ability. We might as well pray to a spirit since a spirit is more powerful than a Buddha as he is able to trick the Buddha to spread his practice and built a chapel for him. Hence, the accusation of Dorje Shugden being a spirit is not acceptable and easily refuted by logic.

    Malaysia is a multi-racial and multi-religion country. It is a Muslim country but for non-Malay, we are given the freedom to choose what we want to practice. The government allows different religions to have their own worshipping places as long as they abide by the laws. The most important thing is the religion practiced by the people must not create disharmony in the society. Therefore, Malaysians are extremely lucky to be given the freedom to practice the religion we choose. Look at this beautiful Buddhist temple in Langkawi, it is so peaceful and serene.

    Tsem Rinpoche always shows kindness and compassion to people he meets. He only makes a positive impact on someone’s life, he never inflicts pain or suffering. Tsem Rinpoche is always ready to help, but we have to first open up ourselves before Tsem Rinpoche can help us. With the qualities of a Buddha, Tsem Rinpoche never asks for anything in return, he only wants people to be truly happy and not be stuck in the delusional world we create for ourselves.

    Did you know the great 5th Dalai Lama built a protector chapel for Dorje Shugden? The chapel is called Trode Khangsar, located in Lhasa. Not only did the great 5th Dalai Lama built a chapel for Dorje Shugden, but he had also composed a beautiful prayer to praise the good qualities of Dorje Shugden.

    Interesting news as HH 14th Dalai Lama in the commemoration of the 30th death anniversary of the 10th Panchen Lama, spoke that there are instances in Tibetan Buddhist tradition where a reincarnate lama can took more than one manifestation. It is possible that there can be more than one emanations on the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Rinpoche. Gedhun Chokyi Nyima, who was recognised by HH 14 th Dalai Lama and Gyaincain Norbu, who was recognised by China , HH dalai Lama said that both are legitimate incarnations of HH 10th Panchen Lama. Interesting information and this is the second time H H Dalai Lama spoke of his view. The 10th Panchen Lama is considered to be one of the most revered religious leaders in entire Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Abby is indeed talented in all fields at such a young age. Nowadays there are more youngster chasing their dreams to purchase their career path. But some how Abby choose to be with Rinpoche doing what she loves in translating , writing as well as social media management in the Chinese-speaking world. She forgo her studies in Taiwan to be with Kechara. Abby has also witnessed Rinpoche’s teachings that change people’s lives for the better which then inspired her . Even though I have not known her for long and could not understand her videos in mandarin , I can only say she is friendly, happy go lucky go, helpful and speaks well confidently in her dharma sharing.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Interesting stories how Rinpoche encountered with the great Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen that had changed Rinpoche’s life. Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen was a Tibetan lama and human rights activist living in the United States. And also the founder and spiritual director of Thubten Dhargye Ling. Its in United states that Rinpoche met him and have had the immeasurable good fortune to have been guided. His advice was always appropriate and beneficial to Rinpoche. He was known for his great compassion and personal warmth that attracted and inspired Rinpoche. He continues to inspire many of his students with the legacy he brought from Tibet. We have Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen to thanks as Rinpoche received all of the teachings and knowledge and now pass on to others about Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing of a Great Lama.

    An amazing biography of Rinpoche in his journey through the trials and tribulations of human sufferings to his calling as an ordained monk and recognition as reincarnations of highly attained Masters of the past. Note Rinpoche’s strong Guru Devotion, his loyalty and his success despite such pains he had gone through. A true example of how the Dharma should be practiced.

    Whales are extremely intelligent creatures and, like all animals, they have feelings too just like you and me. What’s amazing is that they can also exhibit behaviour that is kind and compassionate, putting the life and safety of another being ahead of their own.

    Read how did the whale save the woman from the shark.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing the reason why Rinpoche has to suffer. Rinpoche is a reincarnate lama but chose to go through the difficult life. He shows us that no matter how challenging life would be, we should never give up and must keep our determination strong in order to achieve success.

    Many of us would have gave up after years of trying but Rinpoche did not complaint and just keep pushing himself because his motivation is always to spread the dharma and uphold his promise his Guru. Rinpoche bio is an inspiration for us to not give up in dharma.

    Great speech by Venerable Arjia Rinpoche , who spoke without fear openly. He advised the Tibetan community to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners for the sake of peace ,unity of the Tibetans and to safe guard Tibet’s unique culture . A good start from a great lama closed to HH 14 th Dalai Lama. Peace cannot be achieve through violence, it can only be achieved through understanding. More than 60 years of the Tibetan leadership exploiting their people , they are beginning to realised the truth and they want peace and harmony to carry their lives. What is important is the mutual respect and acceptance of differences. Hoping more great lamas will speak out about the Dorje Shugden issue and more will be aware of it. There should not discriminating against people on the basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. World peace begins with inner peace. Most good relationships are built on mutual trust and respect. When we have respect for others, the world would be a better place .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news.

    Thank You Pastor David Lai for this wonderful tales of Rinpoche. I do agree with you that Rinpoche gives people a strong and lasting impression. I personally had this when I first met Rinpoche for the first time when he entered wisdom hall during one of his short Dharma sharing years back. Rinpoche is indeed a living Buddha that stood out among his students during his many trips to town. It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation and Rinpoche is one such honourable exmple.

Wow….. interesting account of how doing this practice saved the lives those in the car accident. The car were badly damaged but all passengers walked out without any major injures except a little bruised. All thanks to Rinpoche’s quick action by doing incense offerings much earlier. That’s the power of Dorje Shugden.
    I have included this incense offering practice in my daily Sadhana since learning of the many benefits.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral Patel for this sharing.

    When Tsem Rinpoche became a monk in India, none of his family or friends in the US were willing to sponsor him to study in the monastery. Fortunately, Tsem Rinpoche’s teacher, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche of Rashi Gempil Ling (Howell) asked Anila Thupten Chonyid to sponsor Tsem Rinpoche USD50 a month. Anila Thupten Chonyid did that for years. Tsem Rinpoche has never forgotten the kindness of Anila, if it was not because of Anila, Tsem Rinpoche would have to suffer even more in the monastery.

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

On January 26, 2019, Venerable Arjia Rinpoche who is a close friend of the Dalai Lama asked the Tibetans to stop discriminating against people who practice Dorje Shugden and regionalism. His speech called for unity for the preservation of Tibet\'s unique culture and religion and all Tibetans should be friendly with each other regardless of religion and regional origins. His speech is powerful and much needed at this time. Very beautiful. Thank you Arjia Rinpoche. Please see here: https://bit.ly/2CdOz1A

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

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

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
