(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends,

A friend of mine has been ill. He works within Kechara and is a very kind person. He has many friends who wishes to do practices, pujas, retreats and dedications to send him good energy in order to heal. So why not direct those good intentions into a Medicine Buddha practice.

I visited Turkey Swamp last week here in New Jersey and decided to give a talk on Medicine Buddha practice. I use to visit Turkey Swamp as a child and do meditations here. It use to take me around 2.5-3 hours by bicycle to pedal to Turkey Swamp.

This practice is dedicated for my friend, but anyone can do this practice for themselves. It is the same procedure. They can also do this sacred practice in dedication for others. It’s wonderful for animals as well. 

I have recorded a clear video explaining this practice and how to go about it. Kindly watch the video to learn about this sacred Medicine Buddha practice. I wish you all good luck and long life. Health too. May your obstacles be cleared.

Tsem Rinpoche

It was really cold that day when we went.

 The waters at Turkey Swamp very blue and we saw a lot of fishes.

 We walked around this area as I have not been back since 30 years. So recording this teaching here has special significance for myself.

 There are always ducks swimming around Turkey Swamp even when I was a kid I’d see them here.

Turkey Swamp lake is placid and calm which is ideal for meditation. Very ideal.

Dorje Shugden is said to have the strength of a thousand Dharma Protectors. Therefore, he has the amazing ability to protect the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa, have the healing abilities of Medicine Buddha, fulfill wishes in the manner of Green Tara and protect one from spirits and other negative afflictions like White Umbrella.

    Sacred Medicine Buddha practice is very powerful and beneficial . We are very fortunate to receive this teachings from Rinpoche. It helps us in many ways such as clearing any problems along our spiritual path, good for healing our body, mind, even animals , bless the land, environment in place where there is a lot of earthquakes and so forth. Precisely helps in our medical and health problems internal and externally. May Paul have a speedy recovery.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing without any initiation .

    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.

    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 sir Tsem Rinpoche for your teaching on Medicine Buddha.I really appreaciate that from bottom of my heart.

  8. Sadi on Feb 20, 2015 at 4:17 am

    I have seen this teaching in the past. Noteworthy is Rinpoche’s compassion and care for his student Paul. There was another blog post on him personally attending to Paul as Paul laid on his bed. I am glad Paul has overcome his sickness due to his faith in his Rinpoche. Your compassion is truly immense Rinpoche. I wish you and your students all the best forever and ever Rinpoche.

    Dear Guru Rinpoche,
    You are our great Rinpoche
    l am so grateful to you for your ability to help peoples find their true connection with Dharma spirit.
    Wishing you good health.
    Cheer.

  10. Rena Wong on Dec 8, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this powerful & simple prayer of Medicine Buddha. As Rinpoche explained, this prayer is very effective to blessed the environment and all beings :-

    For personal well being :-
    1) good for our health
    2) purifying our karma and preventing karma from manifesting diseases, illness
    3) lessening our karma that will delay illness or cure the disease
    4) protection for good health

    For the environment
    1) calm & eliminate natural disaster places
    2) for animals to have good human rebirth to practice Dharma

    Overall it is developed specifically to clear obstacles so that we can learn & practice the Dharma and to be enlightened. Its is good for calming and healing the mind and environment.

    I am very thankful to Eric KK Siow of KP, Sunway who introduced me Su Ming who have guided Gary to carry-out Setrap Puja (a prayer to Dharma Protector) and Menlha Puja (a prayer to Medicine Buddha) during a serious and unknown health condition. Its been 4 years and his condition is now under controlled.

    I sincerely thank Rinpoche for providing each and everyone the necessary purification method to overcome our daily problems, our obstacles, our illness and also our suffering during the illness or death of our loved ones. With Rinpoche’s blessing, Paul Yap will always received the blessings, prayers & protection of medicine Buddha to recover swiftly and have good health.

    Once again, thank you Rinpoche for your profound teachings at this beautiful enchanting lake of Turkey Swamp. May this powerful Medicine Buddha prayer reached all beings that they receive the Dharma which is the medicine to alleviate our suffering. May the development of Medicine Buddha at Kechara Forest Retreat manifest quickly for the sake of all beings.

    Wish Rinpoche the best of health and continue to teach and guide all beings to the path of Enlightenment.

    With folded hands
    Rena

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind compassion to give us a talk on Medicine Buddha, on how to do one, what are the benefits and Rinpoche’s Generous dedication and wish for Paul Yap’s recovery. I really believe in Rinpoche sincere and strong belief that Medicine Buddha Practice and mantra truly works and is super beneficial to all living beings around us as well as the person that is dedicated to. From Rinpoche’s story, it must’ve been really funny to see a line of ducks following Rinpoche after finishing the prayer haha. I am a practicing vegetarian and at times I may be offered a situation to eat meat where it may be offensive to the person I am receiving it from. Learning this mantra now would help me go through it, if the situation cannot be avoided. Thank you for sharing this teaching Rinpoche.

    药师佛心咒有心灵治疗功效, 我们身体健康不好,常常念诵此咒,可以健康长寿。药师佛心咒对治众生的种种病苦,并能消除一切灾业。

  13. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 30, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching of Medicine Buddha Sadhana.

    I remember Rinpoche said before, Rinpoche does not like to teach, but because of Rinpoche promised to his guru, he will teach. Even Rinpoche is far away in USA, Rinpoche still record and teach. Rinpoche always wanted to benefit every single beings that come into his life.

    With this teaching being made available online, many people will definitely be beneficial from it. Now is our turn to do it and dedicate to Paul’s recovery so that he can continue to serve the Dharma which this is also his great wish.

  14. Wylfred Ng on Nov 28, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Before this i thought Medicine Buddha practice can only heal us from illness or disease. After watching the video, i only know that there are so many benefits practicing Medicine Buddha.

    I personally have not attend any weekly Medicine Buddha Puja at Kechara House, but because of volunteering in Kechara Puja House, i had chance to join the puja for many times.

    Recently, i have chance to invite back a Medicine Buddha statue which is beyond my expectation.

    I am very happy to have the statue and wish that Medicine Buddha will benefit more sentient beings.

    Thanks again.

    药师佛法门真的很强,很多人接触药师佛法门后都会大力推荐和利益身边的朋友。药师佛不只是针对病疗,对心灵的治疗都非常显着。普遍上都被大家接受,这也是一个让大家接触佛法的好办法。

  16. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 12, 2013 at 3:37 am

    Medicine Buddha mantra helps both the living and those who have passed away. Purifies a lot of heavy karma it is also able to benefit beings who have died for hundeeds of years.Reciting the mantra and blowing on the bones helps the being.

  17. David Lai on Nov 12, 2013 at 2:08 am

    Wow Rinpoche,

    This is such a wonderful and meaningful place to be giving this wonderful teaching. I do remember a story that Rinpoche told once that when Rinpoche prayed to the Medicine Buddha statue, you could stop the rain. I thought that was incredible. I think Medicine Buddha mantra and practice is powerful way to bless the sick, dying and wandering animals. I guess its a great mantra to recite and bless meat but I hardly do that nowadays as i hardly come across meat these days.

    I think Medicine Buddha puja is one of the most popular pujas as there are always people who are sick or dying. That is crucial because this puja is real effective and powerful. And the wonderful thing is that this puja is simple and can be done by just about anybody. However, I would like to take time to learn up the actual puja in Tibetan. Lovely… Thank you Rinpoche for sharing an explanation on its meaning.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for showing your kindness towards Paul’s illness as we really want him to recover as soon as possible. Thank you for explaining the benefits of Medicine Buddha practice with intensive decription and teachings of Medicine Buddha practice. The information from here is very useful for us to practise as layman. Thank you Rinpoche again for giving us the clear instruction to practise Dharma and grab the opportunities to do more Dharma while we are in perfect human form in this life times.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so very much for the teaching on Medicine Buddha at beautiful Turkey Swamp, New Jersey. Such a peaceful and serene place to be.

    I will recite the Medicine Buddha mantra more often to help pacify a hostile environment and also to calm my mind so that I am not distracted from my Guru and the Dharma path.

    With folded hands,
    Wendy

  20. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 8, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this teaching on the Medicine Buddha sadhana and its many benefits.

    I believe very strongly in the power of the Medicine Buddha sadhana and mantra. Recently, Zoey, one of my cats, fell and hurt her head. Immediately after that fall, she behaved as though she was suffering from some brain damage. She became still and altogether unlike her previous very energetic lively self and she wasn’t eating. The vet said her eyes didn’t show any response to a certain test he had conducted. He told us to be prepared for the worst(that she could become a ‘vegetable’ and would have to be fed using a drip then), and asked us to leave her with him for a few days.

    During those few days, I prayed to Medicine Buddha, and had a Medicine Buddha puja done for her by the KH Puja House. When my husband and I went to check on her a couple of days later,the doctor reported that she was back to normal and was behaving in a normal way. How powerful the Medicine Buddha sadhana and mantra are in purifying the karma of my Joey !

  21. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Nov 8, 2013 at 8:50 am

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the Medicine Buddha practice. A month ago, my nephew was very sick going through the last stage of cancer. I started to chant Medicine Buddha mantra and OM MANI PADME OM everyday for two weeks before he passed away. I am glad I could do this little for my nephew.

    May Medicine Buddha practice bless everyone.

    Thank you again Rinpcoche.

    Your sincerely,

    This place was incredibly idyllic and magical. The autumn colours were just mesmerizing and the waters reflecting the dusk was just divine. It is no wonder Rinpoche has such fond memories of this place.

  23. KYC on Nov 7, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    We are very fortunate to receive the Medicine Buddha teachings from Rinpoche. It is useful for healing illness and for purification of negative karma. I will study the sadhana carefully and apply it for myself as well as to help others. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  24. Julia Tan on Nov 7, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Very happy to see Rinpoche in the video. Thank you Rinpoche for the sacred Medicine Buddha Teachings with beautiful scene from Turkey Swamp. To be born as a human is rare. To have a healthy body is even more rare. By having a heathy body we can do lots of Dharma work. But our body is so fragile and easily get sick and damage especially living in this hectic and stressful city. We need Medicine Buddha Practice badly, more so a place that can give us not only healthy living but calm and relax our mind. Through Rinpoche’s kindness, a place like Kechara Forest Retreat is manifested in order to have a place for retreat, meditation, puja, chemical free vegetable and good quality air to breath.

    Paul has been working and having meetings non stop even when he can’t sit up need not mention about walking. He will get well soon with Rinpoche’s prayers and blessings and all the Medicine Buddha pujas that has been done for him.

    Much care and prayers,
    Julia

  25. terri on Nov 7, 2013 at 3:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche, also can you please pray for our country the USA while you are here at home, things have been scary with our government shut downs and many mass shootings. I am so happy you are here blessing us with your wise presence.

  26. terri on Nov 7, 2013 at 3:07 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I have had a lot of suffering lately, so I have just learned of you coming to the US. I hope you will make your way to the West Coast sometime so I can see your blessed face.

  27. Joy on Nov 5, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    What beautiful teaching on a beautiful setting. Perfect for the practice! May all those who needs healing be benefited from this wonderful healing practice.

    When you think about it… Buddha is really “something”… He’s so wise to give and present to us so many different teachings, 108 volumes of it in fact (that’s a lot of bibles) and each focusing on different problems/neurosis we humans have on this planet earth and beyond I’m sure! I have not encountered any other religion or spiritual practice that has this type of versatility, wisdom and the vastness where by each and every single one has an antidote that deals immediately, directly with one’s problems and solves it at the root cause if we trully serious practice it. And thanks to spiritual masters/teachers like Tsem Rinpoche who has learned it, master it, preserved the teachings and now passes it on to others.

    This is why it is so important to always help the teachers/Lama, without them we would never receive these precious teachings such as this one we are receiving now. Without the Lama there is No Dharma. Hence making offering to the Guru/Sangha is of the highest form of offering. It is more powerful and meritorious than offering to a Buddha statue. Why cos the Buddha statue cannot give you teachings and transmission directly. Hence… Help one, help many http://vajrasecrets.com/offerings/offerings-to-tsem-rinpoche/urgent-help-rinpoche-to-benefit-more-people.html

  28. Joshua on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking up the time to share the teachings of Medicine Buddha practice. And it looks calm and peaceful at Turkey Swamp. Its just the right spot to give teachings. 🙂

  29. Grace Leu on Nov 4, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Medicine Buddha teaching. It really help when people around us fall sick, we can conduct this prayer and dedicated to them.

  30. KH Ng on Nov 4, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank You for the teachingson Medicine Buddha. It is a real blessing as always from You. I hope Paul will recover well and with Rinpoche’s and Medicine Buddha’s blessings along with all in Kechara, I am sure he will.
    Please take care and do what you need to in the US. We miss you and will await your return.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the teaching. Interesting and good to be part of the people who will be doing this sacred practice for the benefit of parents, friends and pets.

    Thank you again Rinpoche for the teaching.

  36. Felicia Lee on Nov 3, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche, after listening the teaching of Medicine Buddha, I felt so blessed and pleased to have invited my beautiful 12″ medicine Buddha home almost 2 years ago. His presence gave immense positive energies to my whole family.

    Thank you.

  37. Sean Wang on Nov 3, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this lovely practice with everyone. Rinpoche is always caring about others, showing constant compassion for others. Medicine Buddha is a wonderful practice to help heal the sick.

    Turkey Swamp looks very nice. I hope that I can visit it one day and meditate there too!

  38. wansan on Nov 3, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this beneficial and precious Medicine Buddha teaching. Turkey Swamp is definitely a beautiful place, peaceful and quiet. May Medicine Buddha bless everyone and May Paul recover as soon as possible.

  39. Patsy on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this sacred teachings of Medicine Buddha practice from Turkey Swamp, New Jersey. Even from far away, Rinpoche never hesitate to share and teach the dharma and we are so fortunate to have Rinpoche with us. Thank you for the reminder that our precious human life is very short and we have wasted so much time before we met the dharma.

    May we all gain a healthy and strong body with Medicine Buddha practice and to use our lives to benefit others. May Rinpoche be blessed with long and stable life and remain with us to turn the wheel of dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings.

  40. Uncle Eddie on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    How really compassionate, caring and concern Rinpoche truly is! Even when he returned back to Turkey Swamp at New Jersey, he took the opportunity to do a “Medicine Buddha’s practice” for a good friend who is sick, to be healed. It seemed that he had not been back here since 30 years ago, and doing and recording this Teaching of Medicine Buddha practice has a special significance for Rinpoche. From the description of the favourable conditions of things at Turkey Swamp at that time seem to be perfect for Rinpoche’s practice. May Rinpoche continues to enjoy all such successes for all his future wishes. Om mani padme hung!

  41. May Ong on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful Medicine Buddha sadhana for us to practice for our benefit. We are part of the team that will be starting the sadhana to dedicate to the quick recovery of Paul Yap’s health and complete the numbers required.

    You took the time to explain the benefits of this sadhana to us in great length, so therefore we will cherish this teaching in our hearts and share it with others online to benefit those that needs it.

    I can see it was a very cold and windy day at Turkey Swamp but the weather did not deter you from giving this teaching. Please do keep yourself warm, healthy and safe in your travels.

    With folded hands, your student

  43. guest on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:50 am

    Thanks for the teachings.
    If by any chance you’d have time in future, it’d be nice to read or listen about importance of sleep in buddhist practice – how to make it beneficial, how to use this natural phenomena to deepen own spiritual practice.
    Greetings.

    We are so fortunate to have a guru who can lead us in our spiritual path by giving us the right method and teaching. Guru is indeed like our Spiritual Doctor, giving us the treatment to our sickness and prescribing the medicine to us. Unfortunately, we students do not follow the instructions and neglect the kindness of our guru. Hence, when our negative karma ripen, we should not blame anyone but us, why didn’t we take the ‘medicine’ prescribed ? No point complaining if we are the one who do not want to change.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this article and explanation.

    It is simply amazing how Edward Leedskalnin can move coral stones of up to 30 tonnes by himself with simple tools. Something which I think science can’t explained like how pyramid is built during that period without machines.

    It is nice to see these warm stories of how human helped marine animals out from their life-threatening situation. There are a lot of attention given to prevent animal abuse in cases of dogs and cats. However, there are only a handful of attention given to marine animals.

    Fishes aren’t given the attention that they deserve because their cries normally went unheard. However, fishes are animals too and they do feel what a human being will feel. We should treat all animals the same and stop creating more suffering for them.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    If Dalai Lama has been worshipping Dorje Shugden for decades, consulted his oracles, composed prayers for Dorje Shugden, then how can he finally and suddenly see Dorje Shugden as negative? How could Dorje Shugden have ‘fooled’ or ‘misled’ such a high being as the Dalai Lama for so many years? That does not make sense. Since Dalai Lama is a highly realized being, he should be able to see Dorje Shugden as a superior being or a negative being from the very first time they ‘met’. This ability is inherent in highly attained beings such as H.H. the Dalai Lama. If we are to hypothetically say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can make mistakes, then this puts us all in a quandary because he saw Shugden as superior in earlier years but later as malevolent. Does this make sense? Because if he can make a mistake once, he can hypothetically make another one. So the ban and his current negative views about Dorje Shugden perhaps can be wrong? I am just presenting some hypothetics.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the mysterious part on Buddhism. I didn’t know divination is also practised in Buddhism, I have always thought divination is only practised by non-Buddhist. This shows how compassionate Buddha is, Buddha will use different ways to help people.

    Since most of us don’t have the karma or merit to connect with Buddha directly, divination is the best way to seek advice from an enlightened being. Taking refuge and asking for advice from an enlightened being is safe because Buddha is omniscient and Buddha will give us guidance that will truly benefit us.

    Dromton Gyelwa Jungne

    Dromtonpa has come down in history as both an enforcer of Second Propagation ethical standards and a holder of Atisa’s tantric lineage. According to the Blue Annals, Dromton was charged with expelling tantric practitioners from Atisa’s audience, this despite the fact that at Samye Chimpu (bsam yas ‘chims phu) Atisa gave Dromton initiation into tantric systems, including the Doha tradition of Bengal. The Blue Annals credits him with revising the translations of both sutra and tantras, including the Astasahastrika Prajnaparamita, and the Jnanasiddhi Tantra.

    The Fifth Dalai Lama, Ngawang Lobzang Gyatso

    In 1622 he was identified as the rebirth of the Fourth Dalai Lama, Yonten Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 04, yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616) by Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen (blo bzang chos kyi rgyal mtshan, 1570-1662), who had been the tutor to the Fourth Dalai Lama. Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen gave him the name Lobzang Gyatso (blo bzang rgya mtsho) and enthroned him at Drepung Monastery (’bras spungs dgon). Much later the Fifth Dalai Lama gave Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen the title of Panchen Lama.

    Thank you for the sharing, I do agree in the article say man are responsible for everything in their life. In simply way man are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Only man use the reason and conscience with which they are endowed to act with humanity toward human, animal and planet.

    I truly agree with this article. Every single action that man has to do and done has to connect to one another for perfection in this world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for telling us this story for us to learn from it. Rinpoche gives a lot of advice and instructions to many people and students to help them. However, no all of the recipient of Rinpoche’s kindness will be willing to go all the way with Rinpoche’s advice and instructions even though it is for our own good. Some will stick all the way but some will stop halfway due to their laziness and fears due to the lack of faith in Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche will not give any advice that will harm us. Sometimes, the instructions might seem to be harming us or unreasonable, but we have to have faith in Rinpoche that eventually it will be beneficial for us in the long run.

    It is very good to know about the origin and the story of the Buddhist deity. The story of Methar shows us how the Tibetan leadership has been operating since the older time, how powerful highly attained lamas are and how an evil spirit can be subdued to do good to help others.

    Power and money are what the Tibetan leadership is interested in. They will make false accusations on someone to take over someone’s wealth and power, like in the case of Demo Rinpoche and Methar. Methar turned into an angry spirit after he was killed. However, due to the power of Serkong Rinpoche and his deep Dharma imprint, Methar was subdued and agreed to give his service to Kache Marpo.

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche: Birth, Death & Bardo

    Birth, death and bardo: what are these three things? How do people die? We have to understand what we mean by birth, death and bardo in general. We must know how the bardo is entered. We die, go into bardo, take birth, again die going yet again into bardo. There is an unending cycle of the three; no end to it at all. It is useful to develop aversion to Samsara (or Cyclic Existence) and very good for practice to know this.

    People often relate witchcraft to evil practice. However, in this modern time, no one is penalised for practising witchcraft. It is not a main stream religious practice and people can practise it freely.

    Therefore, it is very ridiculous for the Tibetan leadership to penalise Dorje Shugden practitioners because of their faith. Dorje Shugden practice started about 300-400 years ago and it has never been a threat to national security, there is no reason it should be banned. May the ban be lifted soon and no more discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    The Rain Stopper

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 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
