Tsem Ladrang USA

May 20, 2014 | Views: 1,763

After many house-hunting retreats, and part of the team making a trip to Los Angeles just to meet with realtors and view prospective homes, and countless moves from house to hotel (and back again!)…WE DID IT! We have found a house for Rinpoche and have fully moved in to the new *Ladrang.

Our search began five months ago when we first arrived in New York. It was then that we considered the idea of moving into a permanent Ladrang. Living in Manhattan was costly and space was at a premium. Since we were soon to complete our work there, we began to consider the idea of moving to upstate New York or to New Jersey. Rinpoche however, had developed a cough which would not subside and fearing it would develop into something more serious, the decision was made to move westwards, towards warmer climes and milder winters.

We arrived in California on February 2, 2014 and checked into a hotel. We spent the next week using the hotel as our base before moving in to a vacation home, because the hotel was proving too costly. The next few weeks thereafter were spent house-hunting.

The search was not easy. We were facing difficulties with our movers who had failed to send our belongings from New York, and we were faced with our lack of credit history and lack of funds in general. Moving into a place large enough to accommodate the whole team (4-5 rooms) would cost approximately USD$8000 to $10000 per month (which we do not have), and would also require a security deposit and at least two months rental upfront.

Tougher still was our lack of credit history, crucial for landlords to judge how likely we are to pay our rental on time. American landlords are generally reluctant to rent to individuals with no credit history, because they have no way to determine whether the person has a habit of paying bills on time. None of the team had a credit history – Rinpoche had not been in the US for 26 years and as a result, had never developed a credit history here whilst the rest of us had never spent any significant amount of time in the US.

So for the over-100 houses we viewed, and the many houses we found and applied for, we were often stopped by the owners’ straightup refusal to lease to us, or their unreasonable requests (for example, one year’s rental upfront to make up for the lack of credit history). To say our house-hunting was a period filled with many false hopes and disappointments would be an understatement. So often we would get the impression a landlord liked us, only to be told much later they were not comfortable renting to us.

You can therefore imagine our excitement when we finally identified a home that was both suitable for Rinpoche, AND had an agreeable landlord. On May 9th, 2014 we moved into our new Ladrang. We will definitely pay our rent and bills, we have no intentions otherwise.  Set in the hills of Los Angeles, this home sits on 0.6 acres of land and is perched along a steep slope with views over the city. The land is filled with beautiful, mature eucalyptus, juniper and pine trees with plenty of grass and space for the flowers that Rinpoche loves so much. Although we have neighbours, our trees block out much of the view and the predominant sound heard here are birds who come to eat in our back garden.

It took one week for us to pack up our vacation home and move everything out, and four days to clean, move and unpack everything in the new Ladrang. Another two more days saw us clean up the front courtyard and back garden, and do some minor landscaping. In between, the team went shopping for new furniture and over 200 trees and plants for the garden, as well as Buddha statues…and went to the foundation to do pujas and give teachings.

We also set up a wonderful Appreciation Shrine, to generate merits that are dedicated to the wonderful sponsors of Kechara who made it possible for Rinpoche to spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition all over the world. With this shrine, Rinpoche paid particularly great care and interest, going himself to a shop in Malibu to get outdoor furniture, candle burners, mani stones, crystals and pedestals, and bringing it back (in a U-Haul truck, no less!) before overseeing the team who set it up and composing the dedication prayers for the wooden plaques.

The house has two bedrooms, a gift room, living area and a back garden that Rinpoche has already spent many hours in, enjoying the peace and quiet. Rinpoche will stay here with one assistant, Pastor Loh Seng Piow, while the rest of the USA team can now focus on finding accommodation for themselves. We hope you enjoy these pictures of the new Ladrang, and rejoice in our lama having a comfortable place to live. We plan to, in the near future, begin an organic vegetable garden on one of the terraced slopes on the land, to plant fruit and vegetables that we can harvest for Rinpoche. Keep your eyes peeled for more news and information!

 An image of Buddha Vajrapani, one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s original disciples who repels negative energy and invites light, healing and love into the house. On the right is a framed Buddha Namgyalma’s mantra, traditionally placed over doorways and entrances to bless all beings and animals who enter the house

 

 The living room. Rinpoche had us print and frame various holy beings’ images to hang up around the house, including Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche

 The living room’s high ceilings and many windows make it a nice room to hang out in

 The main ‘feature’ of the living room is our altar, with a 3-ft Shakyamuni statue and Manjushri. We make offerings at this altar twice a day to generate merits for our work, and do our daily pujas here too

 We have had pleasant meals in this dining room, which doubles as a working space. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide a lot of natural light during the day. This is one of Rinpoche’s favourite rooms

 The french doors lead into the back garden, and are opened during the day to provide fresh air. In the background is our pantry area, used for food storage and preparation

 Being up in the hills, we are fortunate to get breezes throughout the day. The fluttering prayer flags, hung up in our back garden, make for a very pleasant sight

 Rinpoche likes to place stupas and Buddha statues scattered throughout the land to bless the animals and the surroundings

One of the first ‘objects’ to enter the new Ladrang was the cement Buddha statue in the far left, weighing well over 500lb. It took five men to escort the King of Dharma onto the outdoor shrine, created from an already-existing tree stump

 Since this back garden seating area was set up, Rinpoche has sat out here often enjoying the quiet and calm

致所有在过去、现在、未来为克切拉做出贡献的
功德主、学佛弟子、义工、员工、朋友和支持者们,
我在此回向,让你们享有极度的安宁、快乐、爱与光明,我祈愿你们生生世世都受到圣者们的加持和保护,受到十方诸佛的加持,直到开悟成佛。 
我由衷地将此成就的所有功德,如《普贤行愿品》中所提到的,回向给所有人。 
至诚之爱,

A close-up of the second dedication plaque. I had composed the messages on both plaques, and instructed that they be hand-painted and easy to read

Chinese translation: 

此佛坛与供养品所成就的莫大功德将回向给在我心中过去、现在和未来的所有马来西亚人和新加坡人们。
因为他们的出现,我才能够以我有限的方式谦卑地将佛法弘扬到全世界。
深切的感恩,
詹杜固仁波切 合十

 

 I purchased this Buddha to specially dedicate to my landlord Gail, her family and especially her mother Gladys who was a Buddhist and lived in this house for many years. This Buddha is here on this shrine and dedicated to Gladys’ memory. May all goodness bless Gladys and her family always. Thank you. 

 The Appreciation Shrine, featuring Shakyamuni, Medicine Buddha, Kuan Yin and Tara. Offerings of candles and incense are made here everyday in dedication to Kechara

 A close-up of the Appreciation Shrine. Rinpoche personally created this shrine, buying the candle holders, plants, stones and inviting the statues himself

 Every single day, incense and candle offerings are made and dedicated to Kechara’s sponsors

Precious crystals, mani stones and aspirational prayers are offered to the Buddhas everyday, on the sponsors’ behalf 

  May Kechara’s sponsors have long life, good health and always be reborn into places where there is Dharma

 Bird seed is placed next to the Appreciation Shrine. This plants imprints in the birds’ mindstreams when they come to eat. Also, in feeding animals, the merits thus generated are dedicated to the long lives of Kechara’s sponsors

 Rinpoche really enjoys feeding animals and seizes every opportunity to do so. With such beautiful mature trees on the land, how could Rinpoche resist hanging up bird feeders?

 This back garden foundation is a firm favorite amongst the birds who visit our land

 A small lawn runs along the back of the house, parallel to a verandah

 The verandah to the left, and the lawn in the foreground. Laid out on the lawn are platters of bird seed and water, which are cleaned and refilled everyday

 It is very pleasant working in this dining room both during the day and at night

    A poem inspired by seeing a picture of my teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche…

    In the sport of correct views,
    all that is correct is just a view,
    without permanence or substance.
    As long as we hold onto views,
    our sufferings are gathered 
    to be experienced without end.

    Without the strong methods of emptiness
    and compassion, bereft of merit,
    we sink deeper without respite.
    To arise from this samsara is but
    a dreamscape on the deluded mind.
    Therefore seek the guru, who confers the yidam,
    hold your vows and fixate on liberation 
    free of new creations. Free of new experiences as 
    there are none. 

    ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    Wow! this house is so beautiful and I love the Zen garden so much.It seem quiet and sure is relax sitting there. How I wish I could live in this kind of house…lol 🙂
    Loved Rinpoche’s idea of having an appreciation shrine, in this case Rinpoche shows us that we need to be appreciative when others help and benefit us.Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing _/\_

    Such a beautiful place …Rinpoche found the new US ladrang ,looks so spacious in the interior,well designed,lovely zen garden ,are some of the those neatly decorated areas.
    Rejoiced to those involved making it possible for Rinpoche to stay after a long house hunting in US. Great work ,well done do enjoyed looking through all the beautiful photos showing parts of the ladrang.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

  8. Choong on Apr 1, 2017 at 11:24 pm

    A belated thank you to everyone who made it all happen. I remember fondly the blogchats/quizzes hosted by Rinpoche and the team from Los Angeles. Thank you.

  9. Justin Cheah on Apr 1, 2017 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you PJA for this sharing. What I saw is a beautifully set up Ladrang and this is a result of work done with care, love, tenacity and perseverance. Apart from setting up the house nice, finding a suitable place and a willing landlord to rent a place is also difficult and I congratulate the team for doing that.

    Rinpoche deserves a beautiful and comfortable place to live in for Rinpoche’s kindness to us is unlimited and as students we should always be appreciative of what Rinpoche have been giving us. Finding Rinpoche a decent place to live in and assist in Rinpoche’s work is one of the best ways to repay Rinpoche apart from mind transformation.

    There is definitely a karmic link with Gail and her family, who’s mother Gladys was also a Buddhist who stayed here till her passing at the age of 92. I am very happy to know that the appreciation shrine was being set up by Rinpoche to dedicate/generate merits for people who have contributed in their many ways present, past and FUTURE. It shows that Rinpoche never forget anyone and always being appreciative on kindness received by others.

    Rinpoche always find ways to benefit others in every way Rinpoche can. I thank Rinpoche for sharing the video teaching and the focus is not on the beautiful set up of the Ladrang but I feel should be appreciation to a REAL Lama, to the sincere students and people who have contributed and will contribute in the future. We should not take everything for granted and just take take and take. We should always appreciate. Thank you!

    Wow, this house is so nice and I love the Zen garden so much,it seem quiet and sure is relax sitting there, how I wish I could live in this kind of house..Non stop looking for a house is tired, and I know the feeling is not good, I am happy Rinpoche finally got such a nice house and I hope Rinpoche dharma work grow vastly in USA

  11. Elizabeth Wahyu on Sep 1, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche, I visited Kechara in KL last year. During my visit you gave me a Vajrayogini pendant which I truly feel bringing me closer to my path in this world, I listened to your Dharma talk almost every single day. Not only you bring me closer to my Guru but you help me transform my mind. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. I would really like to meet you in person if it’s even possible, that would be something really special.
    I am planning to visit Los Angeles during the week of 24-30 October and would like to visit Tsem Ladrang USA during that week. Please let me know if it is possible to visit your Ladrang in LA, that would be a true honor that I can meet you in person in this lifetime. I will be traveling with my husband only.
    I hope there is a chance for me to meet the person who brings so much wisdom and knowledge to my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche.
    My deepest respect,
    Elizabeth Wahyu

      Dear Elizabeth,

      Thank you for your kind message. As Rinpoche is in retreat, it is not possible to visit the ladrang at this moment and I apologize for that. Alternatively you may visit us at Tsem Rinpoche Foundation at Santa Clarita, we have puja and class every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm, check out https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/foundation

      Thank you.

    Loved Rinpoche’s idea of having an appreciation shrine, in this case Rinpoche shows us that we need to be appreciative when others help and benefit us. Actually no matter how much support or help we think we can render to Rinpoche, ultimately the best giving from Rinpoche is the dharma which can transform our minds. Hence in my opinion Rinpoche gives us so much more in comparison to what we can offer the lama. It is not fair exchange but it is that exchange which is made possible by the teacher’s altruism that enables a spiritual student to become better and eventually progress on the spiritual path and to be enlightened or transformed to a better state.

  13. Irene Lim on Jul 13, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    It is good to know Rinpoche finally found a place you like. May Rinpoche’s dharma work quickly come to fruition in the US. May Rinpoche stay in good health to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  14. Su Lin on Jul 2, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    This is amazing! It looks great and well maintained. Good job to everyone who helped out in the making of this. Its fabulous!!! Im happy you all are safe and happy! Its great to see people committed and that you guys help our guru so much. Thank you!

  15. Paul Yap on Jun 24, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    I really love the Zen garden and prayer flags hang outdoor, it reminds me of the holly places in Nepal, specifically Manjushri Hill.

  16. Jutika Lam on Jun 11, 2014 at 11:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is only after reading this post that I now know how hard it has been for Rinpoche and the team that have been assisting and helping Rinpoche in the U.S.

    It is really amazing how far Rinpoche has preserved from feeling unwell, viewing a countless number of houses, being turned down by house landlords, traveling to many places to look for furniture and so many other problems and obstacles that Rinpoche had to face in order to get this Tsem Ladrang up and fully operational.

    Also apart from that getting funds was also a problem.

    Thank you Rinpoche for working tirelessly just to spread the Dharma to people in the U.S.

    Looking at the above pictures of Tsem Ladrang I am totally in awe how beautiful and peaceful it is.

    Great job also to the team assisting Rinpoche all the way and congratulations on the successful moving in to the new Tsem ladrang

    Rest Well!

    Love
    Jutika

  17. Carmen Koo on Jun 7, 2014 at 2:24 am

    Wow, reading the article, I can only imagine the ordeal Rinpoche and the USA team had to go through to even rent a property. It must have been so mentally tiring, to have kept being ‘shot down’, but having to get up and keep trying again until it’s done. The fighter attitude will lead to success eventually. When you give up, you lose your chance at becoming better than who you were yesterday.

    Anyways, the Ladrang looks splendid. I am happy that it finally came around. The work put behind it, getting it ready, packing, cleaning, moving… it must have been hard work, but I am sure the USA team was just as glad to have a place for Rinpoche to comfortably stay in as are we. I love the Buddha statues all around the Ladrang, inside and out, and I love the prayer flags. It makes the Ladrang look more calm, peaceful, bright and inviting.

    Reading this reminds me of the time when we were involved in setting up the Ladrang in Bangkok.. It was hard work, due to language barriers also, but it was one of the best times I had and to see something come about and improve on a daily basis till you get a desired end result gives satisfaction.

    Hope Rinpoche will return to KL soon!

    Thank you
    Carmen

    Dear Rincpoche, thank you for constantly taking care of us spiritually wherever you are. May you and your team live a long life for our well being.

  19. Stephanie Gan on Jun 6, 2014 at 11:40 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I feel so blessed to have the good fortune to so freely benefit just by reading your blog. You and your team so are totally devoted to the Dhamma for our well being. My family and I wish you and your team long life and may many more people benefit from your generosity and teachings. I bow down with respect.

  20. sockwan on Jun 6, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    The US Ladrang looks very nice and comfortable. A very nice place for Rinpoche to do the blog works. Thank you US team for working so hard to make this place so nice and comfortable for Rinpoche.

  21. AdelineTan on Jun 5, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    I salute to the US team who work tirelessly for dharma and also truly practiced Guru devotion, good examples to follow, i rejoice! I am very happy to see Rinpoche has finally settled down into a very cosy, peaceful and holly new ladrang in the US. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful captivating photos of Tsem Ladrang.

  22. Pastor David Lai on May 28, 2014 at 3:53 am

    I am glad that Rinpoche has finally able to settle down and found a ladrang in the US. Rinpoche deserves something like this ladrang to reside in while Rinpoche is in the United States. I hope whatever Rinpoche wishes to accomplished being the US come to fruition quickly. And may all obstacles on Rinpoche’s works be pacified and that Rinpoche’s lineage thrives and endures very long.

  23. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on May 26, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    Wow, after watch the pictures above i feel like just finish a tour to US Ladrang… hehehe…

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, the hard works of US team as Rinpoche mention in video can be feel by us through the pictures above.

    The particulars works before, in between and after set up US Ladrang is not easy. But with Rinpoche blessing, US team work harmoniously to make it happened…

    Rinpoche Big smile and US team smiling face in the picture above really touch our heart…

  24. Julien Roth on May 26, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    It really looks like Rinpoche Is having a good time in the us. The Tsem Ladrang is looking really good and it looks very comfortable to live in. I would love to someday come and visit it 🙂

  28. Ba-Qin on May 24, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    The Tsem Ladrang is very nice, Rinpoche. It look really cosy, its simple and yet creative. It gives me a very comfortable feeling after looking at the photos. Must be really nice to be working around all the greens and buddhas surrounding you. And I like the prayer flags a lot, I always love to see prayer flags all around for some reason. I hope Rinpoche is healthy, live long to teach the dharma and also all Rinpoche’s work in USA be flourished. Thankyou for sharing, really like the photos. 🙂

  29. Low KHJB on May 24, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind sharing.We are glad that the Tsem Ladrang USA had finally materialise after a long and tedious search.We are fortunate that the few but relentless liaison could accomplish the guru wish in such a short period.
    We are happy that Rinpoche could finally settle down and we hope that you could start your retreats now as mention so often in the past.
    We would like to thank Rinpoche for his blessing, to all those who had contributed generously to him in the past and present.
    We would remember his generous dharma guidance and hope that all the departments of Kechara would be able to spread the wisdom of Dharma Globally as intended by our kind guru Tsem Rinpoche…

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful pictures from US Tsem Ladrang. The place to me is like a heaven on earth with everything that is nicely and neatly decorated. I can observe the team in US Tsem Ladrang has put in a lot of hard work, time, energy and effort for Tsem Ladrang. Rejoice for the team and I am happy Rinpoche is having a good place to stay.

  34. tenzinkhenchen on May 22, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    I rejoice that Rinpoche has found a new home, and a really nice one at that. It really shows how hard working and devoted the staff are to work tirelessly for this. I am so happy to see that Dharma is flourishing so well across the world.

    Such a serene place with so much for the beings in the area, be it seen or unseen. Thank you, Rinpoche for showing us yet again how to benefit the environment. Thank you, Pastor Jean Ai and all involved, for sharing these wonderful photos and write-ups.

  37. Choongs on May 22, 2014 at 11:53 am

    It really looks like Nepal with the trees, hill-slopes, relative aridness and prayer flags.

  38. Julia Tan on May 22, 2014 at 2:02 am

    Wow..! Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the beautiful picture of US Tsem Ladrang. Through the picture the house seems to be at the high land. I feel so familiar when i was looking at the pictures because this house got lots of similarity with Nepal Ladrang. I like the garden with tall old trees and big plants. It’s cozy because it’s an old house with a matured garden. Those ideas are brilliants like those little stone with wishes. I will find a nice place at Rinpoche’s Cabin and set up something similar. Many people and almost daily people visited Rinpoche Cabin’s to seek for blessings and made their wishes. It’s nice if they can write their wishes on the stones and place it outside Rinpoche Cabin to collect merits..

  39. Lucy Yap on May 22, 2014 at 1:22 am

    Really love these beautiful pictures Rinpoche shared.The ladrang is simply gorgeous in a country setting surrounded by appealing ,mature garden.The front courtyard is simply fantastic and spacious.
    The appreciation shrine is a superb idea!Thank you Rinpoche for taking Rinpoche’s time to create the shrine with amazing and striking craved messages on the stones to benefit others.
    May Rinpoche have good health always and may all of Rinpoche’s wishes come true,but most of all may Rinpoche return home soon. Rejoice and best wishes to the hardworking US team. Thank you.

    Beautiful, really beautiful. So charming, so natural with flowers, trees and landscape.

  41. Sofi on May 21, 2014 at 9:58 pm

    Very happy that Rinpoche and US Ladrang team found this lovely place. Must have good vibes with past owner Gladys being a buddhist. How blessed to have pictures and statues of holy beings everywhere the eyes see. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us pictures of your abode.

  42. Edwin Tan on May 21, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The US Ladrang looks amazing, no less to the great efforts of Rinpoche and the US team that is dutifully serving Rinpoche.

    The place looks nicely set up, cosy, and very holy, with so many Buddha images and statues all over the place.

    The bird feeds are all over the back yard. Rinpoche really wants to leave Dharma imprints and bless the birds in that area.

    The appreciation shrine is beautifully set up too. Thank you for mentioning support from Melaka as well, Rinpoche.

    I pray for the great achievements Rinpoche and team will achieve in US, and may Rinpoche return soon.

    Thank you.

  43. Shelly tai on May 21, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    Thank you the US Ladrang team for working very to set up a place for our guru to stay. I m glad Rinpoche like it indeed is very important for Rinpoche to have a permanent home in US so that Rinpoche can spread the holy Dharma to more people, I rejoice for the team affront and may all Rinpoche wishes come true.

  44. Ming HY on May 21, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    Rejoice in Rinpoche and your teams’ hard work. Very happy that Rinpoche has found somewhere from where you can do your work in such beautiful surroundings, and spread Dharma to many more in the US. Fantastic work by everyone there. You guys are a real inspiration of dedication, patience compassion and commitment.

  45. Jennifer Yuen on May 21, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    Thank you for sharing the US journey with us… the new ladrang looks really cosy… would like to thank the US team for their tiredless efforts and care for Rinpoche. They set a good example for us to learn and follow. The outdoor shrine for sponsors is beautiful. Thank you again Rinpoche for teaching us and reminding us to always show appreciation for the kindness received from others. May the dharma continue to flourish in the ten direction!

  46. Jessica on May 21, 2014 at 11:50 am

    I AM SO SO SO SO SO HAPPY! Rejoicing! Please stay. please spread the dharma here in the US. Please may this home continue to be shelter and and excellent, peaceful place for you to do this work.

  47. Sharon Ong on May 21, 2014 at 11:26 am

    Thank you for the photos and update, Pastor Jean Ai. The US Team should be renamed Super Team for the remarkable job (Superheroic feat if you ask me!) you guys did in setting up such a beautiful ladrang for Rinpoche while keeping up with the Tsem Rinpoche Foundation work. I particularly love the hand painted plaques for the sponsors. The simple but meaningful words touched me deeply.

  48. Wei on May 21, 2014 at 10:16 am

    Clearly there was a lot of physical and mental labour put into making this happen. Good job to the hard workers it looks really awesome. It also looks really exclusive, like the cool kids club ( or does that make it sound uncool :(? ). I hope there will be more success like this in the future. Stay strong! 🙂

  49. patriciasnodgrass on May 21, 2014 at 6:52 am

    Rinpoche I am so happy you found a new home. It’s so lovely. And bravo to all the hard working (and I mean HARD working staff) who have been tireless in their care. I am so very happy for all of you. May you enjoy this new ladrang for as long as you wish to remain. (I’m thinking decades <3 ) Love and hugs to all.

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

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

    The Puja of Following an Enlightened Being’s Advice

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

    Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Explosive Special Message

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

    Reuters covers international Dorje Shugden conference 2018

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

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

    Reuters publishes my thoughts on Tibetan self-immolation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Unknown

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

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

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

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