Seng Piow, Websites & Youtube…

Mar 16, 2011 | Views: 763

Over a decade back I think, I was living in Singapore. I often visited the many temples they have to worship, make small donations or just rejoice at the work done quietly on my own. One day, I went to Tzu Chi Organization which is a astronomically huge Buddhist organization. Tzu Chi has hundreds of incredible centres spanning all around the world, with its headquarters in Taiwan, and led by a Saintly Nun named Master Cheng Yen. Master Cheng Yen started her organization in Taiwan decades ago with nothing but just five disciples. You must read her bio and works…it is so inspirational and beautiful. She resides in Taiwan always. I just visited Tzu Chi in lay clothes quietly to offer some donations, then when they found out ‘who I was’… they brought me upstairs, offered tea and other offerings. They were very kind.

I met another person who showed me around during my visit at Tzu Chi. He had a friend which I met later… This friend’s name was Mr. Loh Seng Piow, an engineer graduate working and living in Singapore but from Malaysia..doing well for himself… I met Seng Piow (Sp) briefly and he would occasionally attend some talks I gave in Singapore and also help me a little in the place I was staying. I rarely met up with him, because I didn’t want to have a centre, or grow or be known or make many friends. So I kept very low key. I would rarely meet people. I was happy in my place doing my sadhanas, offerings and exercises… yes, I did exercises back then… you wouldn’t know it now though… hehe… I am a recluse and loner type… always have been.

I would visit Malaysia often, taking the bus from Singapore. Sp would arrange my bus tickets and leave it in my mailbox. When I was in Malaysia, he would pick up some supplies and go and clean my place in Singapore. Very kind. He did this after work always uncomplainingly. I gave him a key to my place. But whenever he came over, I was not around. When I was around, I would not have him or anyone else over. This went on for years and years. But Sp stuck by me loyally and helped a lot in many ways quietly. When I look back now, I am amazed and grateful.

All of our websites for Kechara House and myself were started by Sp originally. Sp asked me to start tsemtulku.org.sg (it later become tsemtulku.com, and later again about Kechara) while I was in Singapore… I was like NO, NO, NO. I felt ashamed and embarrassed to have a website about such a small and useless person such as myself and I told him that. I really felt my website would have very little content and not much information… He again insisted and ‘pushed’ me and I agreed finally. Even after the website came up, I didn’t go look at it for months. I was embarrassed. But Sp worked on it himself, quietly, and would update me although I didn’t pay much attention to the updates… Well our websites have grown tremendously. We have set up e-Division specifically to handle it in-house… and again e-Division’s talented group of people have taken over from Sp and are handling it now as it has grown big. E-Division is a division within beautiful Kechara House under Tsem Ladrang Dept..

Later, Sp approached me to put some of my teachings on youtube also. I didn’t even know what youtube was!! I flatly refused, telling him I didn’t have much to say and my videos would not do much benefit. He consistently insisted again and again as usual… I finally relented although not taking any interest in it for the next few years. The last thing I wanted was to watch myself…

I gave talks, Sp uploaded it and I didn’t bother to ask about it or even look at the youtube… slowly the viewership grew without me realizing or caring… I know… sad.. And now I get daily mails, notices and messages how much my youtube teachings have helped people… How it has helped them to start their spiritual journeys or re-start or look for a teacher or to do more in their centres. It has helped them to see things in a bigger perspective… fantastic… I have so many people telling me their relationships with others improved because they adopted some of what I shared on the videos. Others made up with people they hadn’t spoken to for years… or many have gone vegetarian because of my talks… or become kinder to their pets/animals… wow… they always thank me and some send gifts to me… The reactions and appreciation I received are so overwhelming…

I immediately thought, it was Sp’s idea… I was resistant, but he insisted and he was right. I have him to thank for… and many people who say my talks benefitted them (thank you) have to appreciate Sp and please do… It was his idea and efforts solely… really.  (Sp just told me our youtube videos altogether have 980,000+ views already as of today.) How fulfilling it is when a silly person like me can do benefit. It’s a dream come true to know I can benefit… I really wanted to ‘set the record’ straight here who started all of this… Sp did all the uploading for years on his own from a computer he assembled himself. It was not my idea, it was his and wow… it was a good idea I must admit. I do not go and see myself on youtube still. But it was Sp’s idea and solitary efforts towards this, I repeat.

Now we have a whole talented group of people in E-division doing this, taking over from Sp – monitoring / maintaining / uploading new information onto our websites and doing plenty of correspondences / gifts, etc… They have taken over from Sp because it has grown too big for one person to handle for sure.

Sp works closely with me these days and is a very accommodating PA to my personal needs such as food, travel, transport, pujas, living, ordering items, purchasing, blog, etc now… it would be hard to do a lot of things on a daily basis without him… (I had a PA who was a long time ‘student’ before Sp, and he did the work and after two months he left because he couldn’t handle the commitment, I haven’t heard from him since… hehe… we were very small that time also…) What Sp does for me daily is endless and too long to list. Truthfully speaking, he really has just devoted his life to dharma work… I don’t tell him much, but he amazes me… He has inspired so many people to dharma work full time also. Amazingly Sp never asks me for help, money, compensation, material items or even food!! He wants nothing… I mean it. He is totally unmaterialistic for the many years I have known him. He has no ulterior agenda for money, fame, or even credit… he really just wants to do dharma work… I have to make sure he gets new clothes, shoes or what not… and I don’t mind. I admire loyalty so much in people who I associate with, and Sp got it…

It was Sp’s ideas, inital work, initiative and efforts that today we have websites and all the youtubes online. I sincerely fold my hands and thank Seng Piow for his many years of dedication, hard work and loyalty. He is one of these guys who stays in the background who never asks for any limelight. But I thought I’d share a little so you can know who are the heroes behind Kechara’s success and growth. It is not me, it is our people. Really it is.

I thank Sp for his tireless support of my work, needs and daily affairs for many years now. His support of Buddha’s teachings which really comes from his heart… my wish for him is to receive Vajra Yogini, do Her practice intensely and attain inner, outer and secret Kecharas within his mindstream… then I know he will be ok forever… For now, I wish to work with Sp for the rest of my life. I have others I feel the same about also in Kechara, but today it is about Sp… Sp does so much to enhance my work, living, and dharma activities that it is beyond description. I really appreciate him, his kind heart, fierce loyalty and genuine respect for Kechara’s dharma aspirations.

Sp is not afraid of difficulties at all. He has travelled to Tibet and many places with me. He has even travelled to Xianjiang to look for and document my blood family living there…

Behind every successful lama are great assistants. I am not saying I am so great or successful, but that is how the saying goes…

Thank you Seng Piow. I also thank the many Seng Piow-like people we have in Kechara that I will blog about in time…

For now, doing dharma work is impossible without people like Sp….

    Rinpoche’s idea of blogging has amazed me because the blog was started around 10 years ago. Computer and internet was something new at that period. Till now I always heard people say how Rinpoche’s articles has change their lives, many of them even travel to Malaysia to meet Rinpoche, or devote to him.

    It’s a heartwarming relationship between Pastor SP and Rinpoche, I see them treated each other like brotherhood. Rinpoche was like NO NO when Pastor SP asked him to start the blog, Rinpoche was not believing the influence he can has to people. Then Pastor SP also approached Rinpoche to put teachings on YouTube, he kept encouraged Rinpoche, he backup Rinpoche with his strong suit in IT knowledge. It is so wonderful to have a close person by your side, to see the best, encourage one another and build each other up 🙂

    Now I could understand why I have not meet Rinpoche on the day I start to work in Kechara. During the earlier days of Pastor SP serving Rinpoche, Rinpoche would not have him or anyone else over at his place too, and this remain for many years. Rinpoche don’t simply meet people, but he still loves everyone. Pastor SP loves him too, he stays in Kechara and still spreading Dharma nowadays.

    Thank you Pastor SP for the brilliant idea to asked Rinpoche start his blog hehe! It must be fun and excited for Rinpoche to came out from his comfort zone too.

    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

    Doing dharma is all about how much we are willing to do to the make dharma grow. Seng Piow has set a good example as he was the person who gave his support to help Rinpoche to spread the dharma by using modern days technology. This single small idea carried forward everyday over the course of many years and now it takes an e-Division team to run Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and youtube Dharma teachings that benefited so many people around the world. It is recorded over 5 million views on TsemRinpoche’s youtube and over 11 million views on TsemRinpoche.com as up to date.

    Seng Piow is Tsem Rinpoche personal assistance for many years and now he is a pastor, sangha to be. This is how much Pastor Seng Piow devoted his life for his Guru and for the Dharma. May he be the inspirations to many.

  6. pavara on Feb 6, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Wow it is very kind of seng Piow to become Rinpoches personal assistant without him we would not have this blog and youtube channel i would like to thank him very much. without Seng Piow we wold not have been known worldwide. I appreciate Seng Piow’s work.

  7. lewkwanleng on Nov 4, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Seng Piow (SP) has been working very closely with Rinpoche as Rinpoche’s PA and seldom “come out”.. many of the new comers may not even know such person exists.

    When I first learnt about SP and I wanted his help to check on a few things and I asked Beng Kooi, what is SP’s “working hour”. She replied and told me, “He wakes up before Rinpoche’s wake up, and sleeps after Rinpoche sleeps.” I further found out that SP has 1 or 2 days off in a year (during Chinese New Year). Later when I have more chance to interact with him, he never complain about his “lack of holiday” or “lack of privacy” etc.

    As someone who is working in E-Division, I am glad to take over some of the online jobs from SP and I thank SP so much for “pushing” to start all the websites and youtube to benefit so many.

    I will work harder to create the cause to work even more closely with Rinpoche in future and look forward to working with SP more closely too.

  8. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 24, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Thanks to Seng Piow there is E-Division and Dharma work for me to engage in. Communication and the spread of information has taken a very different turn than what it was 20 years back, to cater for the masses and the younger generation new methods has to be applied. Though the essence of the Buddhist teachings and principles remain despite the change in the methods. The current buzz is of course Social media like Facebook that such a useful platform to rally people towards causes and share information.

  9. Su Ming on Sep 15, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    What Rinpoche said about Seng Piow is very true.

    Even till today whenever Rinpoche fall sick, SP will pull his mattress into Rinpoche room and will be close by to serve Rinpoche. Whenever Rinpoche sleeps which is very late, SP will sleep and SP will wake up the same time as Rinpoche (Please bear in mind, Rinpoche does not sleep much, cause majority of the time Rinpoche is always either on this blog or in meetings and discussion).

    Most importantly, Seng Piow has been with Rinpoche through thick and thin, he has stuck through all the way.

  10. Li Kheng on Jun 5, 2011 at 1:27 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the opportunity to recognize Kechara’s unsung heroes. It is easy to forget the many hours of hard work put into the beautiful facilities and services of Kechara House.

    SP, thank you for your commitment and dedication to Rinpoche and the Dharma. I humbly ask that you take a moment to experience the acknowledgements for the difference you made to millions of people who were blessed by Rinpoche’s teachings. What you have started is without boundary and timeless. Thank you again.

  11. Koh Hee Peng on May 27, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Thank you very much Mr. Seng Piow for promoting and actualizing the idea of setting up the web sites (e.g. http://www.tsemtulku.com, blog.tsemtulku.com, http://www.kechara.com) and also uploading the videos of dharma teachings into youtube.

    Thank you!!!

    Thank you H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche
    Thank you Sp

  13. MY on Mar 24, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you SP!!! I have greatly benefitted from Rinpoche’s teachings and learning dharma from youtube. If it weren’t for you, it wouldn’t have been possible!

    Kudos to you UNSUNG HERO!

  14. Nicole ST Mah on Mar 21, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this info.

    SP, I would like to personally thank you because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to learn so much from Rinpoche on youtube. Your brilliant ideas helped many people like me who wanted to learn so much about Buddhism and had no one to turn to.

    Rinpoche is indeed a great Guru. It really benefited many many people out here.

    Kudos to you SP. We will all rejoice when you receive the Sacred practise of VajraYogini.

  15. su_zan on Mar 20, 2011 at 12:50 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Thank you SP… without your constant and devotion Kechara Web would not have come about.

    Thank you

  16. Lim Han Nee on Mar 19, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    I would like to add also that I sincerely hope Seng Piow will receive the Practice of sacred Vajrayogini and will rejoice for him when he does.

  17. Lim Han Nee on Mar 19, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Thank you Seng Piow for realizing this great vision. Because of you, Rinpoche’s teachings have spread everywhere in the world and are bringing much solace and benefit to people all over the world.

    Also thank you E-division and all who have made their Dharma work with Rinpoche and Kechara organization their full time career.Because of you, people everywhere are receiving the benefits of Dharma and Rinpoche’s Dharma teachings.

  18. William on Mar 19, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    Wow! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing how the websites all came about. Thank you Seng Piow for having the vision to start and have so many people benefit Rinpoche’s teachings. It must have not been easy doing it all bt yourself in the beginning. I sincerely appreciate you for who you are. 

  19. Cynthia Ng on Mar 18, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    THANKS Rinpoche for sharing and THANKS SP work so hard for dharma to benefit peoples.
    U r awesome!

  20. Adeline Woon on Mar 18, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    I have cleared a lot of my wrong views on Dzambala, Dharma Protectors, Pujas etc and gained a lot of knowledge in things that I have never thought about, i.e. the meaning of buddha’s statue, due to Seng Piow’s persistent efforts in getting Rinpoche’s dharma talks onto Youtube.

    I’m grateful and can never thank you enough. May you be blessed with the dharma and attain buddhahood so to benefits other forever.

  21. Lin Kechara on Mar 17, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Seng Piow is really lovely. Sat next to him one time for dinner and one can tell even in that very short time he is a very quiet, gentle person.Intelligent but not pushy or in your face. I really liked him.

    After the information supplied by Rinpoche, it only confirms what I thought he was. A giver, a selfless giver. A really nice person.

    Hope to know you better.

  22. Anila on Mar 17, 2011 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Seng Piow for benefiting so many people by Seng Piow’s steadfast loyalty to Rinpoche until today. Like Rinpoche say Seng Piow has help in many ways to spread the Dharma world wide especially by creating the Blog and putting Rinpoche’s teaching on the youtube. This has help to influence more people to join in Kechara House activities to do charitable work. There are many who also have helped in the growth of the 13 Departments of Kechara Organisation. Seng Piow started the E Division. The E Division is now the core of Kechara with a lot of capable people to operate and manage without Seng Piow supervision. Then Seng Piow can concentrate on serving Rinpoche.

  23. wzi on Mar 17, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for sharing.
    Dear Seng Piow, I am new to all these, many thanks for your help and suggestion to make this all available to me, so I can approach this bit by bit at my own pace. It means a lot to me, and keeps me calm and rooted.

    To the e-division, thank you for the effort of all the up-keeps, it’s wonderful.

    May all of you be healthy and well.

  24. patsy on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Seng Piow is a man of few words, but then actions speak louder than words. His passion for dharma and his devotion and loyalty towards Rinpoche is amazing. Thank you, SP, for promoting and spreading Rinpoche’s teachings through the cyber world.

  25. Jace Chong on Mar 17, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow, thanks for your huge efforts helping and promoting Rinpoche, i think this is the best job of the world which is so beneficial to all beings. You are one of my mentor to do more!

    May you be healthy and happy always =)

  26. KH Ng on Mar 17, 2011 at 9:36 am

    Thank You Seng Piow. Without your inspiration and hard work we may not have the benefit and joy of Rinpoche’s Dharma spreading as it is now.

  27. J on Mar 17, 2011 at 5:21 am

    Thank you Seng Piow for helping Rinpoche and thank you for all that others have gained from your efforts.
    Its no exageration to say that without the benefit of seeing teachings on youtube i may not even be here today, i went through some pretty dark times, and they helped keep me grounded.

    With much care,

    J

  28. Lars on Mar 17, 2011 at 5:09 am

    Dear Seng Piow, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing
    Rinpoche and his style of Dharma to the web. I can’t tell you how much benefit I have gained from the countless videos and texts of His Eminence, my debt to you for your hard work can not be repaid.

    Thank you / Lars

    seng piow and e-division are really doing great job . Tsemtulku.com started from 2001 and now with google pagerank 4 and Daily pageviews of 3,827 ! two thumbs up !!!

  30. Pop Ioan on Mar 17, 2011 at 1:58 am

    I remember that in december 2007 I wanted to know something about buddhism because I realized that I don`t know anything about it. Than I started to look for videos on youtube – that is how I found Tsem Tulku`s video about Dalai Lama. This is how it all started for me. This youtube videos and the forum from Tsem Tulku`s site actually changed my life. So thank you for all of this.

  31. tsemtulku on Mar 17, 2011 at 1:47 am

    From Blair O’Neil on Facebook:

    Very beautiful dear Rinpoche… thank you so much for sharing this _/\_ … we too have a team of e-supporters for the dharma and I will share this with them so they can see what beauty lays withing this service. thank you, thank you, thank you for teaching… _/\_

  32. Paris on Mar 17, 2011 at 1:33 am

    All of us love Seng Piow to death (I would still like to marry you if it was legal to have two husbands haha). He has a devotion that is so much more, so much deeper than what most of us could have, and it is unwavering. I have seen Seng Piow go through some really difficult times, but no matter what he is going through himself, he never gives up on Rinpoche – this is a real practitioner. So many people have just upped and left when the going gets tough. Seng Piow never would.

    He’s an unsung hero who does so much behind the scenes to support Rinpoche and make his work possible. It is amazing and mind-blowing to think that everything in the organisation that is online and “e” now is thanks to Seng Piow.

    A few months ago, a monk from Brazil came to visit. He told us that it was through the first Kechara website that he downloaded a teaching Rinpoche gave about Gaden Lhagyama. From there, he started reciting migtsema and doing daily practices. From there, he wrote to Rinpoche, received further advice and practices… This led him to finding his own centre and Guru in Brazil and eventually becoming ordained at the age of only 20… This is what one website can do, and it was by SP’s quiet efforts that all this is possible.

    Some of us girls are all secretly a bit in love with Seng Piow. When he comes into the room, we scream, “Seng Piooooow! I love yooooooo! You’re amazing!” He looks embarrassed and shuffles off quietly. This is how he is – he never looks for attention, face, reputation or material gain. If he needs to speak up and “look bad” in front of a whole roomful of people, he will do it because he cares and because it is important. He does what he does because he believes strongly, passionately and compassionately about Dharma and about helping Rinpoche.

    I like especially that he doesn’t take no for an answer – in this case, for youtube and the websites. There sure is much to be learnt in SP’s own wonderful example.

    AND I STILL LOVE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! *MUAKS*

  33. Andrew James Boon on Mar 17, 2011 at 1:27 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this as I would not have known. Not because I doubt SP’s abilities or motivation but on the contrary knowing and seeing what I know of SP, his servitude towards Rinpoche is exemplatory and incredibly selfless.

    I myself would not be here serving Rinpoche in my own little way if not for SP. Reason for this is, Thierry came across Rinpoche’s teaching via podcasts (which I am sure SP “uploaded” as well) which in turn led to Thierry finding Rinpoche’s teaching on YouTube. And this was because Thierry “heard” Rinpoche mention Jalan Alor on one of the podcast teaching which prompted Thierry to look for Rinpoche on YouTube.

    And it is through this Thierry’s “discovery” that our search for Kechara began… So to put it in a nutshell, Rinpoche’s valuable teaching are exponentially spread through this incredible medium which SP “pushed” for. A wholehearted thank you SP for your persistance, care and servitude to our beloved guru and thank you Rinpoche for yet another example in humility and care for those around you.

    Much love… Andrew

  34. Hank on Mar 16, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche & SP:

    I remember three years ago when I first came to KH1 to attend my ever first KH events-Chinese Manjusri class, it was SP who immediately gave me few copies of Rinpoche’s DVD. I really inspired after watching it and it was how I started my spiritual path until now. Thank you SP.

    SP should come back again to the Chinese Manjusri class and share his great works and experiences, we look forward to your attendance 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche as well, your blog is really really amazing and benefited to so many soul all over the world.

    with folder hand,

    Hank

    Dear Rinpoche and Seng Piow,

    From the bottom of my heart, I thank the both of you for the hard work the both of you put into all the websites videos and blog.

    Personally, I found out about Kechara and Rinpoche through this blog therefore knowing that Seng Piow played a huge role in Rinpoche’s online presence,inspires me to do more Dharma work.

    It is because of this blog that I’ve found Spirituality and am living a very happy life. It is also through this blog and Rinpoche’s youtube videos that I get the chance to learn so so so much!

    For all the above, I once again thank Rinpoche and Seng Piow for tirelessly work to spread the Dharma. THANK YOU!

  43. ck liew on Mar 16, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I had my brushes with Seng Piow due to what i am doing outside Dharma and i did try to help him accomplish what he set out to do but in the end sadly due to my own fault i think , i am not able to assists him in his noble goals. I wouldnt say what it is but i really really have so much respect for this person. Kechara are full of people like that but SP is one of the few best at what they do. Thank you SP ! I wish the best of everything for you.

    Dear Rinpoche and Seng Piow,
    Thank you for all you have done in using the internet to spread the Dharma. My first real connection to you, Rinpoche was through watching your teachings on YouTube.

    Thank you, Seng Piow for the idea to use the internet as all of us would not be able to receive such a wide spectrum of Rinpoche’s precious teachings otherwise. For those of us who live far away, we continue now to make the connection through all the other social network sites like Facebook, Twitter, websites like Kechara.com and of course this blog. Living two oceans away in the US has not made a difference for me to stay close to all that is happening in Kuala Lumpur and I have made so many friends on line as a result of this connection. I cannot express how much this means to me and how I am benefitting from Rinpoche’s blog and Facebook postings. Seng Piow, you are a genius to realize so early that this would be an effective way to spread the dharma. May you always be blessed by the wonderful merits of what you have accomplished so selflessly to spread the dharma and thank you once again.

  45. Dawnene on Mar 16, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Dear Seng Piow,
    Thank you for your efforts and work and for everything you do for Rinpoche. I am very glad that Rinpoche posted this story and told us about all the efforts you have made. Your work made it possible for me to learn of His Eminence and his teachings and therefore transform my life. I fold my hands to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for making that possible for myself and for so many others. Most sincerely, Dawnene

    SP is all that Rinpoche describes. He is a man of few words but can be talkative when he has the passion for a subject he likes. He has given up his ‘career’ working in Singapore but found a real career here in Kechara as a Personal Attendant to Rinpoche. Not only that, he forgoes some of his personal things too.

    I cannot do what SP is doing and for that, “THANK YOU, AH PIOW!” 🙂

    Rinpoche, I first came across your teachings on Youtube… must be 7/8 years ago. They offered me much support during difficult times and I always related to your direct and humorous approach. I used to paste the videos onto Myspace to share with my friends on there. Thanks to you and SP.

  48. Grace Leong on Mar 16, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Dear Seng Piow ,
    I have been in Kechara for a few yrs now but I have NEVER spoken to you at all . Our paths hv never really crossed I guess.But NOW after reading Rinpoche’s immense praise, YOU must be a very SPECIAL person . Thank you to you for starting all those ideas on Youtube etc. It is so RARE now for me and my family to have the opportunity to see Rinpoche , to hear his teachings , to share his interests in real life . But knowing that Rinpoche will continue to teach on line is very heart warming ! Thank you Rinpoche and thank you Seng Piow !

  49. Tharchin on Mar 16, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    I still recall the very early website design done by SP. It has been so many years ago. In fact it was that website that lead me to write to Rinpoche and subsequently to everything that has become Kechara today.

    Who have thought that such an idea in SP’s mind could have manifested into such greatness with the passage of time?

    I sincerely rejoice in SP’s devotion to Rinpoche!

    Thank you SP for you bringing Rinpoche to the world via Internet

    Thank Rinpoche for spreading the stainless teachings of Je Tsongkhapa!

    Lama Tsongkhapa Riding on a Tiger one of the five visionary forms that came from dream vision appearing directly to Khedrub Je who was lama Tsongkhapa’s tantric disciple. Beautiful thangka to have together with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful Thangka.

    Beautiful and unusual Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple in Bagan,Myanmar. Amazing place and striking Buddhist complex of stupas, shrines and monasteries built on top of a tall volcanic plug. This Buddhist Monastery is built on a tall volcanic plug and is one of a tourist and pilgrimage site in the vicinity of nearby Mount Popa. The Buddhist monastery lies magnificently on top of an extinct volcano plug which rises up to a height of 1518 meters. To reach the monastery, there is a fleet of steps of 777 steps to reach the summit and will encounter some monkeys along the way too. From the top, one can enjoy a panoramic view of the ancient city of Bagan and the majestic Mount Popa, the volcano responsible for the formation of Taung Kalat.
    I have not been to there yet, would to visit such a magnificent panorama which extends across the plains to the Rakhine hills, rising from the dust haze on the horizon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Beautiful thangka of Buddha Akshobhya, Manjushri, Manjushri Nagarakshasa and Dorje Shugden. Buddha Akshobhya is one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas, who represents consciousness. The ferocious Manjushri Nagarakshasa is one of the most fearsome looking Buddhas within the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Together as depicted in this beautiful thangka tells us thousand words……is indeed powerful and beautiful to have in our house.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this thangka with explanations.

    Dharma is spreading and flourishing around the world, that’s wonderful. Especially to countries such as Africa, we have Drupon Khen Rinpoche Karma Lhabu to thanks. Africa is a massive continent with diverse religious traditions, it’s a up hill task teaching Buddhism . Buddhism is a quiet new religion in South Africa, most Lamas would prefer going to Asian or European countries to spread Dharma teachings.
    Drupon Khen Rinpoche Karma Lhabu is a monastic teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. While in Tibet he received extensive training in Dharma and Meditation. He studied under many accomplished masters of mahamudra and dzogchen. All from Kagyu and Nyingma lineages whom are famous lamas and unknown yogis . He travelled all the way to Africa to spread Dharma and working tirelessly , going to remote parts of Africa . Truly compassionate of him.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Some Africans were aware of Buddhism at a very early stage in history. Africa is still the least Buddhist of the inhabited continents as to this day. There are a number of difficulties and barriers to spreading the teachings of the Buddha in Africa. But wonderful to have Bhikkhu Bodhiraja a Congo citizen ordained spreading Buddhism then. Although small and remote to some but its getting popular due to Bhikkhu Bodhiraja’s hard and dedicated work. How joyous and wonderful of him bringing Dharma to Congo. It is such great news to rejoice. May even more people enjoy the blessing of Buddha. He even built four Buddhist temples and had even planted a Bodhi tree.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Buddhism is finding its way into parts of the world now…..far and wide.

    Wow amazing discovery like Indiana Jones adventure. A rare 1,000-year-old Buddhist statue found by a Nazi expedition in 1938. It seem a meteorite that crashed into the Earth about 15,000 years and it have been carved into a Buddha statue by Tibetans as claimed. With this it has proven that the people living in that time were already practicing Buddhism.
    With this discovery scientist had classified the statue as a rare class of iron meteorite. They mentioned that the meteorite must have fell to Earth approximately 15,000 years ago.
    Interesting discovery . The priceless statue is believed to originate from the pre-Buddhist Bon culture of the 11th Century. It sounds like an artifact from an Indiana Jones film.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Rejoice to Pastor Lanse receiving such a blessed, precious, and sacred Vajrayogini image from Rinpoche. Pastor Lanse is one of the many fortunate students who did received gifts from Rinpoche. Reading those comments and from this blog, tells us more of Pastor Lanse . Pastor lanse must have worked very hard benefiting many though. May more people be inspired by her going all the way working for Dharma.

    Merely by looking at the holy image of H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche is a blessing. Could imagine it when those who have met H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche in person…. the kind of feeling . What a blessing it is to see such a very rare and holy image of H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche in Tantric dress. He was one of the great lamas of the twentieth century. He was the root lama of both tutors of the 14th Dalai Lama and the teacher of many of the other Tibetan lamas who have been bringing the Dharma to the West.

    Rei Kawakubo, self-taught Japanese fashion designer known for her avant-garde clothing designs and her high fashion label. She is one of the most influential designers of the late 20th century. Making a name in the western fashion world with very unique design . She has changed not the way we think of the fashion world but the way fashion and thought can coexist in culture and commerce inspiring new generation of designers. Looking at those clothing she had designed is unbelievable and truly unique indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing of a talented Japanese designer.

    Reading this interesting post again of the 5th Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden . The story of how Dorje Shugden become the Protector of Our Time. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama. His extraordinary scholarly knowledge, spiritual practice and having a very close relationship with the 5th Dalai Lama had then causing a lot of jealousy and tension among the officers of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa was often considered to be more popular then it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Many people all over Tibet, Mongolia and China would come to pay their respects to Tulku Drakpa, and request teachings from him. As Tulku Drakpa’s fame grew, it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge the officers who was so devoted to their master plot the murder of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. They had different ways to kill Tulku Drakpa many times without any success. As Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen earlier promise to Nechung to arise as an Protector, finally revealed the method to his own death. Interesting story one must read to understand better. It was a sacrifice he chosen to fulfil and uphold in order to become the Protector of Our Time.
    After realized the mistakes done by his officers, the 5th Dalai Lama composed prayers, crafted a statue to recognize Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as a Dharma protector. He even built Trode Khangsar which now stand in the heart of Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Chengdu is a sub-provincial city which serves as the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center where visitors can view endangered giant pandas in a natural habitat. Been an ancient city with a history of more than 3,100 years, it offer many tourist attraction. Many of the ancient sites around Chengdu reflect the influence of Buddhism, as well as the agricultural history of the region. Thousands of tourists both locally and internationally will flock to this city the beauty of it. It seem Chengdu is one of the most leisurely cities in the world. Well , Chengdu is famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes. This is because of the world famous Sichuan peppercorn that is grown in the region. Not only that the Giant statues of the Buddha one in Leshan, show the enduring presence of Buddhism on the area.
    Reading this post help a lot for those first timers visitors like me. I am glad my friends and me made it there to see for ourselves. I wish i could revisit this beautiful and exciting Chengdu again in future. Loved seeing those ancient architecture of those temples and of the city.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post with details.

    Many monasteries have their own Dharma Protectors to safeguard the organisation and its interests. Setrap is one of them , they will propitiate their Dharma protectors every month to request for protection, blessings, and assistance for the growth of the Dharma and the well-being of the sangha. Each and every monasteries have their own. Interesting read of this article all about the close historical relationship between Dorje Shugden and Setrap.
    Setrap is emanation of the wrathful emanation of Buddha Amitabha, while Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri. Setrap is an ancient Dharma Protector from the holy land of Bodhgaya in India. Sworn to protect the teachings and the practice was introduced to Tibet, and has since flourished. Many great Lamas and Geshes are known to have practised both Setrap, as Gaden Shartse’s Dharma protector, and also Dorje Shugden. They cannot be wrong definitely where Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the CTA. They knew the practice is very beneficial . has been the Dharma Protector of Gaden Shartse Monastery for the past 600 years. Dalai Lama visited the Dharma protector Setrap’s chapel in Gaden Shartse Monastery, South India. Dalai Lama even consecrated the chapel with prayers and sees Setrap as an enlightened being. Dalai Lama also endorsed Setrap and his practice as a beneficial one where he did affirmed the practice of Dorje Shugden through such close association. Interesting read may more people read this article to have a clearer understanding.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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
