Unsolved Mysteries – UFO’s & Me…

Drawn by an Abductee under hypnosis. A group of them were abducted together at the same time. Separately under hypnosis, their drawings were intriguingly similar

Since I was very young, I was naturally drawn to phenomena that was not accepted by ‘mainstream’ public. That didn’t bother me. I was always the type of person that I did WHAT I FELT WAS RIGHT and not so much WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO. Many of the things I was supposed to do didn’t make sense to me then and now. I am more patient with things I don’t agree with now then I was then though I must say. Must learn to tolerate early in life, less problems.

I have always studied up on Loch Ness, Findhorn, Ufo, Sasquatch, Nazca Lines, Incas, American Native Indian lore, Tibet, ghosts, astral travelling and the likes. I used to practise astral travelling nightly that I read up in a book. I also did meditations on Vajra Yogini I found in a book also when I was around 13 or so. No results for either one though as I am sure I was doing something wrong that the book didn’t fully explain. Anyway, I found out later I shouldn’t have done the Vajra Yogini meditations without permission.

I watched endless documentaries on these mysterious subjects and did quite a lot of reading. One of my favorite places was the library. I can spend a day there and not be bored. I would borrow 10-12 books every two weeks and read through most of them. I did that for years. Or at least have a good look at the parts I was interested in before returning the book. I would borrow biographies, encyclopedias, Ghost stories, Magic, mysteries, Travel, Religions (my favorite), and reading up on cultures. I would go to libraries in other towns and borrow books because libraries had limits how many you can borrow at any one time. I didn’t like the limits. haha. I would even go to Flea Markets and second hand stores to buy books on various mysteries. I loved encyclopedias with color pictures. I would borrow from A-Z slowly. I would spend evenings and weekends reading after homework. I would listen to the Beatles, John Lennon, Simon & Garfunkel and read.. sometimes paint or draw. I loved to draw mountains, lakes and huge trees. I was fanatical about drawing various Buddhas. I loved to draw yogis meditating in the mountains and gaining great realization or seeing the Yidam directly. I read voraciously and absorbed the information fast. I was happy I could retain it.

My step-parents didn’t make things easy for me. But they left me alone to read. They wanted me to play soccer and sports. I hated sports. Any type of sports. They forced me to play soccer for like 6-7 years in a row in a huge soccer club with uniforms and all. Lots of kids. We’d have matches with other counties and towns. I NEVER SCORED ONE GOAL EVER. My step dad commented once all the boys run towards the ball, whereas I run away from it. I was thinking, I told you I hated soccor hundreds of times?? My coach stuck me as the goalie JUST ONCE. I let like 3 balls pass me in around half an hour!! Everyone gave me the evils, but I already warned my coach not to do so. His logic is I’m tall so I would be good. My logic is I don’t want my teeth knocked out for this silly game! Hehe. He never put me back in as goalie again. The day my father didn’t sign me up for soccer was one of the happiest days of my childhood. He wanted me to be Pele or something and I wanted to be Dalai Lama that time!! Talk about conflict of interest! I still want to be like the Dalai Lama!

Anyways, I found these really cool videos of UFO footage and I thought you might be interested. Listen carefully to what they are saying and observe. It is one of the most convincing footages caught on film I have ever seen. These didn’t convince me that extraterrestrials existed because I know they do exist. Buddha mentioned clearly WE ARE NOT ALONE!!!

Enjoy and share with others. It is nice to rise above relationships, money, bills, eating, travelling and all the very normal, redundant traps we set for ourselves and think deeper. Look beyond. Think more. Keep your mind wondering, discovering and learning. Don’t be stuck where you are.

This video is perfect for alot of my students. It did cross my mind when some spaceships would come back and take back some of my students as I know they are NOT FROM HERE…hehehe. Do let me know what you think in the comments section. I really want to hear. I would appreciate your feelings. Thanks ahead of time.

Much care,
Tsem Rinpoche

P.S. I have very varied interests. It isn’t just meditation, mantras, shambala, malas, auras, and enlightenment all the time. I have many interests and they are very wide. So I am going to blog about them and share. Each time you read my posts, a part of me is shared with you. That is nice. I am the only Tibetan Lama that blogs about UFO’s, but you know what, I never said I would fit the mould. I am different, ‘controversial’ by some, strange, not the typical lama if you will, unconventional, and just being myself. Some find me refreshing and some may not. But it’s ok. I am coming to terms with myself now too and you should too. Hehe. I am not trying to be ‘different’. I just am I guess. But it is a harmless different. Maybe I am just waiting ….E.T. go home for me too???

    Wow, Rinpoche, you described a portion of my own childhood! I too loved to read as a kid and spent hours reading about similar topics. I also read horror and science fiction. I read very few romances although I did fall in love with Hemingway and Steinbeck and Shakespeare. When girls were talking about boys and make up I would wander off by myself, completely disinterested. I spent time reading, writing, or drawing. I also studied the Bible and read about church history (which is how I found out I was being lied to) I became interested in the paranormal when we moved into a haunted house. I saw a UFO in 1983. I’ve always been interested in and drawn to these things. I blog about them often.

    I believe an Alien since i was kid…cause i have seen the UFO twice~
    i also like those mystery books…unknown creature on the earth….since i was born..duno why…

  5. Ee Ling on Feb 13, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Some aliens are here to heal some people … sometimes the physical body; sometimes the energy body….

  6. Adeline Woon on Oct 31, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    An Ani-lags shared the below with me. I have problem understanding most of them, since I lacked heaps of background knowledge on the subject.

    “The Truth About A Semitic People” http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_autor_lauraknight04.htm

    By the way, if there are Seven levels or kinds of energy, could UFO be the third kind? Or fourth? Since by seeing the “spaceship” means it is being in contact from considerably close distance. But not as close as the fourth level, unless someone claim to have been abducted? Like the movie “The Fourth Kind” starring by Milla Jovovich.

    How should I correlate the “Seven levels” and the “Ten dharma reamls”?

    Thank you for sharing!

  7. Knut Eggers on Sep 28, 2010 at 2:50 am

    I will watch all the videos. I love you, Tsem Tulku, I really do, but right now I am not a good student and have a glass of red wine. The vadjra yoghini tea ceremony helped me much, do you think I should stop it and maybe instead of high aspirations rather going to love my future wife? I was so phascinate of Vadjra Yoghini, I wanted a stue, I can’t afford it, the diamond way buddhist want me to join their club, I’d rather stay with you, I want to be a vegetarian and eat no mil and no eggs, no alcohol no sugar, I want to marry but I’m too afraid…I can’t see my path, except I understand that I desperately want to marry her. If I had the choice between her my beloved darling and Vadjra Yoghini, Vadjra Yoghini is the definite looser.

    So if Aliens are in the human realm… They can attain enlightenment and become a Buddha in their current form. They do not need a higher or lower rebirth? They can become enlightened beings, and therefore, teach Dharma. That is NOT the way I thought about it before…

    Perhaps they came to earth to learn the Dharma? Or Stephen Hawking is right and they are going to take our resources and kill us, then move on the next planet. I didn’t believe him when I read that, I disagree.

    I have always considered them to be in the Jealous God realm. Very long life, or something, but not eons long like long-life gods. Hmm…

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche !!!

    I just read your note. One evening I had this feeling “The aliens are coming” and turned it into a little song and videoclip, realizing that they may already be amongst us !!! As you also like animals, you may enjoy it:

    http://vimeo.com/8404681

    Thank you for your good inspirations and a lot of good inspirations and good energies for your work !!!

  11. Lew, Kwan Leng on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    It has never crossed my mind that Lama will ever introduce UFO to me 🙂 But then again, Rinpoche is “special” 🙂
    Though I have not seen an UFO before, I hope to meet them one day, but hopefully they will let me come back alive 🙂
    I strongly believe that there are many living beings in outer space (I don’t quite like the word ‘alien’ because I felt they are actually the same with us).
    The Steven Hawking videos are also very interesting and intriguing. Again, never expected that from a Lama 🙂

  12. Leonglili on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    Thanks again rinpoche for clarifying aliens are human realm. So limited was my thinking that humans have to look exactly like us to be categorized under ‘human’ category. A monkey does not have to look like a tiger to be categorized as an animal. Now I understand I’m just 1 of species in the human catergory.
    I just love UFO & aliens so much, while I was younger I used to have dreams about myself being an alien and living in the alien community that conducts a lot of experiments. I wonder if it’s fantasy or recalling some past life memories? Those dreams were very real to me back then when I was a kid so I’m still waiting for my UFO to appear 🙂
    I’ll read up on Stephen Hawkings and leave my comments there.

  13. Elena on Jul 9, 2010 at 3:49 am

    Ooooh I loooooove anything to do with unexplained phenomena. As a child, I’d watch documentaries about them all the time, and research online about yetis and whatnot. Even back then, before I knew anything about the different realms of existence, I always thought aliens could exist because our universe is so great. With so many planets, I figured it would be pretty arrogant of us to think that we are the only beings that exist. And even on this earth, it’s more than just humans who exist – animals live right next to us, and new ones are being discovered all the time so why can’t yetis and the abominable snowman and big foot all be possibilities?
    And geez! Talk about karmic imprints. Even as young as 13, Rinpoche had already come across Vajrayogini and her meditations…and wanted to do her meditations! What were we doing when we were 13? Definitely not that!

  14. Susan Lim on Jul 9, 2010 at 1:22 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post. I like the stories very much and very enjoyable to read about what Rinpoche is interested in or not bothered about. I particularly like the soccer story. Though I’ve heard it before, it still makes me laugh each time I read it…that must have been quite a sight to see Rinpoche dodging the ball instead of going for it! Hehe…
    Another point which Rinpoche wrote…”I was always the type of person that I did WHAT I FELT WAS RIGHT and not so much WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO.” Rinpoche was not rebellious but new what that what mainstream people engaged themselves with is sheer pointless. I wish more parents will read this and NOT insist to MOLD their kids’ lives similar to theirs when they know it hasn’t brought happiness!

  15. Michael Kuang on Jul 7, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    Sometimes it really makes me wonder if UFO really does exist. Maybe we are still waiting for the signal being sent out from million of light years away. The Buddha of this eon did mention that there is life beyond this world along the Universe. The Buddha don’t need the Gigantic Telescope or even Communication Satellite to know this. We are still waiting for the day to receive signal or perhaps we might not even have a chance to witness the very first evidence of extraterrestrial in this lifetime. Scientists, Astrobiologists , and many people have spend so much time and effort looking for evidence. Why not practice Dharma, it is proven by the Buddha. I guess my only best shot at this lifetime is start practicing, and hopefully along the way get a glimpse of what lies beyond our Earth. When I think of this, Pink Floyd’s Time comes playing in my mind.

  16. Peter on Jul 7, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    I was brought up to believe that these are all devil, devil, devil..
    And then much later, anything that does not resemble Jesus, Mary and Joseph or the Vatican, its devil devil devil…
    Now as a Buddhist, I have read in scriptures that there is nothing outside of the Mind…everything that is in this world of phenomena is within the Mind…
    So from the devil world view to a world wide view world in a Mind..
    What if one were to meet one of these states of existence, in this case ‘aliens’, what would you have said to them as a Buddhist?
    Hmmm…..

  17. Sean Wang on Jul 6, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    I am also naturally drawn to all sorts of phenomena like Loch Ness Monsters, UFO’s etc. I really wish I could do Vajrayogini practises one day. I would like to know how to find books that are related to atral travelling. May I have some reccomendations please. Documenteries on this subject are interesting for me too. I agree with Rinpoche that the best place to be is in the Library when you are bored. Rinpoche is very good at reading as it can provide knowledge. I dislike sports too. I also want to be like the Dalai Lama too !
    Thank you for the lovely foootages of UFOs I find them totally believeable. I do not think we were ever alone.
    The picture of the Abductee getting examined by the UFOs look scary. I am lucky not to be him!

  18. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 5, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    The videos on the UFO’s were so very cool. The Universe is so vast in all directions,can the universe be so empty of life apart from planet earth. Even one of the greatest scientist in the world Stephen Hawkins mentioned that its wishful thinking for us to think we are unique or alone in this universe.
    Probability of having life in other planets or solar systems is very high. This is also validated by what the Buddha spoke about, there are countless worlds that beings can exist and humans are one of the more primitive ones. I find it hard to subscribe to a thinking that earth is the only place that life exists in this whole wide universe.

  19. Ivy on Jun 23, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    Thanks for sharing this Rinpoche! It is great to see someone you look up to have similar interests:)
    I was wondering…
    If we assume that there are other planets with intelligent life, does more than one Buddha manifest during the same age on other planets, or does the same Buddha manifest everywhere at the same time, or are we the only planet lucky enough to have Buddha’s teachings for this age?
    Maybe this is a silly question, but it is something I have been turning over in my head…
    Thanks 🙂

  20. Thierry on Jun 23, 2010 at 2:51 am

    This is casting a very interesting light on the topic of aliens, and alien worlds/planes/systems.
    Other realms, other dimensions, other experiences of existence into which one is projected by its karma cannot be limited to this planet in the way we see it on “Geographic Channel.”
    So are aliens not from Mars, but friendly humanoid Dharma brothers from Shambhala?
    I like the idea, somehow re-assuring!

  21. firefly on Jun 20, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    (Talk with HH Dalai Lama,
    http://www.berzinarchives.com/web/en/archives/advanced/kalachakra/attending_kalachakra_initiation/question_sessions_hh/question_hh_initiation_01.html)
    Berzin: Is it helpful to explain about Shambhala?
    His Holiness: Certainly. Where do you think it is?
    Berzin: I don’t quite know. Serkong Rinpoche said it was not on earth, but could perhaps be on another world where flying saucers come from. This is because the texts speak of people coming from Shambhala on flying vehicles. They come from Shambhala to check our situation. Several cultures among the indigenous people of South America and South Africa also have myths like this, that visitors came long ago from outer space and taught them calendar-making and astronomy. Perhaps they came from Shambhala.
    His Holiness: From the point of view of Buddhism, Shambhala is a pure land (dag-zhing), like Sukhavati, Tushita, and Khachari (Dakini-land).
    Berzin: Isn’t Shambhala a human realm?
    His Holiness: If it’s a pure land, it doesn’t have to be a god realm. There are some pure lands where humans can go. Even non-Buddhists can reach them and once there, proceed on the spiritual path.
    Berzin: Is Shambhala included in samsara or nirvana? Serkong Rinpoche said it is a samsaric realm.
    His Holiness: It seems to be in samsara. However, once one gets to this samsaric place, one’s mind and heart naturally develop much more rapidly. It is probably more like a human realm within in the cycle of samsaric existence where special people live who have built up a great store of positive force (merit, positive potential).
    Berzin: So it is not technically a pure land, but just similar to a pure land?
    His Holiness: It is not a pure land in the sense of being a god realm. It is a human realm, but probably also a pure land.
    Berzin: It is not on earth?
    His Holiness: It is not on earth. If it were, we should be able to find it. However, it is probably in our universe, but we need pure karma to reach it. I wonder if we can really get there directly by just some sort of mechanical vehicle, like a space ship. Why I think like that, I don’t know. But, what (the Third Panchen Lama) Panchen Palden-yeshey (Pan-chen dPal-ldan ye-shes) said about it makes things a bit complicated. In his Guidebook for the Path to Shambhala (Shambhala lam-yig), he wrote that if you do an intense meditation retreat, then you can actually see deities and they will give you help to go to Shambhala. He wrote like that. Therefore, it is not simply an ordinary physical journey.
    Berzin: Serkong Rinpoche told me that his father Serkong Dorjechang had gone to Shambhala and had brought back fruit and flowers, which they had in their house.
    His Holiness: I take safe direction (refuge) from him! Panchen Palden-yeshey also went to Shambhala. Some other learned masters went as well. There is an account of Taranatha going to Shambhala, but I think that was in a dream body. However, it is not on this round earth. It is probably a pure land with humans similar to those on earth. It is difficult to say.
    Berzin: The Kalachakra texts speak of the larger and smaller Jambudvipas (Southern Continents). On the northern half of the smaller one, the texts list six lands going northwards, one of which is Shambhala.
    His Holiness: That is difficult. If we speak in terms of that, then Shambhala would have to be a place on this earth. There is also mention in the texts of Potala Mountain in the south, the land of Ugyan (Skt. Oddiyana) in the west, the Five-Peaked Mountain in the east, and Shambhala in the north.
    Berzin: Serkong Rinpoche had said that of these, some are on earth and some are not.
    His Holiness: Precisely, that is why. There are two for each: the actual ones and similar ones that represent and substitute for them. For instance, according to the scholar Gendun-chopel (dGe-‘dun chos-‘phel), Ugyan is in Sindhi [Swat Valley in Pakistan]. Today, it is a Muslim area. It is not completely clear, but as for the Copper-Colored Mountain that Guru Rinpoche went to in Ugyan, that probably is in an uncontaminated pure land.
    Now as for Potala Mountain in the south, then as a substitute for it, there is one in the south of India. But, then there is also the Potala Mountain of Avalokiteshvara, which is in a pure land. As for the Five-Peaked Mountain, there is the usual place in China [Wutaishan] with this name as an actual place in the east, but also there is the pure land of Manjushri with the same name.
    Thus, it is quite probable that Shambhala is also a pure land like this, with some location representing it. There is precedent for it being so. However, it cannot be found in any place. There are many reasons and signs for saying that it exists, but because it isn’t in this world, then except for it being an uncontaminated pure land, there is nothing else it could be referring to in the texts.
    Berzin: And what about the talk of flying saucers?
    His Holiness: It could be said that they have a connection with Shambhala. Definitely, there are other beings in the universe. There are other kinds of sentient beings and it is decidedly so that they are on other worlds, not just on our world. That is definite. There are many galaxies.
    Now, Shambhala is included in our galaxy, perhaps even in our solar system, since the texts say it is included in Jambudvipa [our world-system]. Thus, it is talking of a pure land in our world-system, however large our system might be, where only sentient beings with pure karma can go and where there are sentient beings with human bodies.
    Berzin: In the West, we have talk of Shangrila. Is this related?
    His Holiness: It is a pure place, isn’t it? I don’t know, but probably it is. The name signifies a pure place, so I think the name probably came originally from Shambhala.

  22. Shirley Maya Tan on Jun 20, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Ok, I have finally found something in common between my dad and Rinpoche. My dad loves UFOs, Loch Ness, and all these mysteries. He even took us all to Loch Ness and we sat there waiting for hours for Nessie to appear. Of course, Nessie did not appear. I had just turned 18 years old then. We had a great family holiday around Scotland. One of my favourite memories. Then while I was studying in the USA, he made me buy him all kinds of UFO videos and documentaries 🙂

  23. Y X on Jun 19, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Dears,
    I belief i had been visited by an alien about 10 or more years ago.
    I was asleep in my bedroom, lights on, suddenly i awoke though body munscles paralysed, and saw a black dark silhoutte figure with large purple eyes at the foot of my bed staring at me! It looked quite typical like how aliens are usually depicted.
    Anyway i was very afraid but could not scream (paralysed) and i closed me eyes and prayed for a long while. I remember the radio was emitting noise, however I later discovered the radio was not switched on ???
    Well, thats my encounter… in Pj, Malaysia!
    Thats the only encounter i had with whats popularly called aliens. I have had other encounters too but they might be aliens or not (since i felt them instead of saw)

  24. Siong Woan on Jun 16, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, my husband is a STRONG believer of aliens! In fact he believes gods/deities/buddhas were aliens from other planets. He enters (and loves it) into endless debates with whoever bring up this subject with him. I will share this blog with him and am sure he will be too happy to read! His favourite question is “planet earth is experiencing increase in population, where does all these additional/new souls come from?” Fr Siong Woan

  25. Taji Spybuck Davis on Jun 16, 2010 at 8:32 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for ur selflessness throughout this lifetime. I find u so inspiring being born a Prince yet choosing to spend this incarnation with those of us who truely need u. Ur compassion and love for each and every being is beautiful. What a bonus that u open our eyes to truth in creative ways that make u relavent to spreading dharma in the west as well as in the east. Thank you seems inadaquate but it is my offering to you Your Eminence.

  26. Bei Dawei on Jun 16, 2010 at 8:02 am

    One more note: There is a story among the Roerich people to the effect that the purpose of the expedition was not so much to *find* Shambhala as to return a certain stone (a meteorite fragment with mystical properties) to it. The story goes that the Masters had lent the fragment to the League of Nations in support of the cause of peace. Upon the failure of that project, Roerich was enlisted to return the stone to Shambhala–or so the story goes. Anyway, the larger stone itself is called the “Gift of Orion” and is said to not only be of extraterrestrial origin (as meteorites customarily are), but of *intelligent* extraterrestrial origin.

  27. Bei Dawei on Jun 16, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Oops, I neglected to provide the other Roerich quote, which is from his essay “Shambala” (available online at http://www.agniyoga.org ) There he writes of “…A shiny body flying from north to south. Field glasses are at hand. It is a huge body. One side glows in the sun. It is oval in shape. Then it somehow turns in another direction and disappears in the southwest.”

  28. Bei Dawei on Jun 16, 2010 at 7:43 am

    Rinpoche,
    Nicholas Roerich (Nikolai Konstantinovitch Rerikh) was a Russian artist and esoteric writer who between 1924 and 1929 organized a U.S.-flagged scientific expedition from British India through Xinjiang, Altai, Mongolia, Amdo, and back through Tibet (bypassing Lhasa, on orders of its government). The unofficial purpose of the expedition was aimed at finding Shambhala. Also, it has recently been discovered that Roerich made a secret side-trip to newly-Communist Moscow, seeking Soviet support for the founding of a new nation in Central Asia (whose proposed borders were unclear).
    In “Altai-Himalaya” Roerich reports sighting “”something big and shiny reflecting the sun, like a huge oval moving at great speed. Crossing our camp the thing changed in its direction from south to southwest. And we saw how it disappeared in the intense blue sky. We even had time to take our field glasses and saw quite distinctly an oval form with shiny surface, one side of which was brilliant from the sun.” (Not sure of your pagination, but keeping his route in mind, flip through until you reach Amdo / August 5 1926, and you’ll find it.)
    Again, pay attention to the context, which involves Theosophical discussion of lost ancient civilizations similar to Atlantis. Roerich and his wife founded Agni Yoga (or the Teaching of Living Ethics), a Theosophical offshoot which recognizes the writings of Mme Blavatsky alongside those of Mrs. Roerich as genuine messages from a hidden lodge of Masters who live in Shambhala.
    Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist who parted with his mentor Freud over the sexual theory, and Jung’s interest in psychic or esoteric subjects. His basic theory–spread out over numerous writings–involves archetypes of the collective unconscious, as revealed through dreams and visionary writings (such as religious material). Jung wrote a long paper called (in English) “Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies,” in which he discusses the modern UFO sightings (e.g. Kenneth Arnold) as mass social phenomena similar to medieval Marian or angelic apparitions and the like. For Jung, the shape of the saucer is a kind of Mandala, an image of wholeness and completion, which appears to comfort us during times of war. In other words, the vision comes in response to deep social and psychological upheaval.
    Incidentally, I neglected to mention “War of the Worlds” on my earlier list. The H.G. Wells novel was an early (if not the earliest) iteration of the “alien invaders) idea, while the Orson Welles radio play is an early example of popular fear of aliens (since American audiences who tuned in late to the newscast-style performance did not realize that the “Martian invasion” was fictional).

    Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing more memories of your yonger years.
    wow…
    That footabll story you shared with us, I can relate to so well…
    (sorry, I skip the UFO for a moment)
    Eventhough my parent did not force me into sports, I HAD to “participate” to these weird game (I mean football) at school; it was very weird to me as a child, because my very friends from my class would suddenly turn into “monsters” on the field, very excited and calling -screaming- nasty names and ugly words at everyone, in such a boiling state of excitation.
    I just never understood what “took” them all, I never got even a start of an “adrenaline” kick from a football game and, of course, I was very very very bad at it…
    I was so bad at it, that my “friends” would scream louder and come to some kind of rage, this was just so mysterious and scary to me then!
    I later came to expect such mysterious shifts or reactions from people.
    So, my sport teacher tought (somehow out of dispair with me -I was probably as mysterious to him as he was to me) that perhaps I could make a good goal keeper, not too much running, and, of course, I was tall.
    I did worse than letting balls pass, I actually got angry -eventually- at the weird energy that all other players seemed to throw at me; I could not take any more screaming, so I simply scored on my own goal and got very hilarious at the stunned and angry reaction of my team.
    I remember that a couple of teachers had to rescue me from the “angry mob wanting to punch me”.
    I believe my parents were told of this, and I am sorry now that it had to make them worried and concerned about my “anti-social” behavior.
    The only good result I got out of this is that I got an official dispense from EVER playing football again through the hole primary school years (I must have made quite an impression!), and instead I was allowed to stay back in the class (alone) and make pretty drawings, that truly felt like a reward…
    So much for football… Maybe I am from another planet after all, LOL…

    Yes, I believe in parallel and non-parallel worlds. There is so many worlds out there.
    Today’s scientists give a conservative calculations of 100 million livable planets out there. That on those planets there is very high chance for life forms.

  31. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 15, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    I enjoyed your very well thought out comments very much. Obviously you have been thinking and participating in this post.
    Please share with me more re Nicholas Roerich and the UFO he saw over Amdo. I have his books but haven’t read yet.
    Please share more on Carl Jung’s key paper on this. Very interesting indeed. Looking forward to your post here.
    Much thanks, Tsem Tulku

  32. Bei Dawei on Jun 15, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Rinpoche, a few comments:
    1. Are you aware that one of the first modern “UFO” sightings (avant la lettre) occurred on August 5, 1926, over the Humboldt Mountains in Amdo? A silver disk was spotted high in the air by members of the Nicholas Roerich expedition. It changed directions abruptly, then headed southwest (towards Lhasa?). Roerich mentions this in his travelogue, “Altai-Himalaya.” Notice that he does NOT identify it with an alien spacecraft–rather, the sighting is sandwiched in between discussion of lost ancient civilizations in the Gobi (from Theosophical lore).
    2. The popular perception of (and speculation about) “UFO’s” and alien contact has evolved considerably, with the stories of each era reflecting certain political and cultural themes of that era. For example, the idea that UFO’s are alien spacecraft came after World War II. For some time their occupants were assumed to be benign, but during the 1980’s–in the wake of books by Whitley Strieber and John Mack–aliens began to be portrayed as the more dangerous “grays” (who are said to abduct humans, perhaps with the connivance of human governments). This idea then spread to other countries, along familiar mass-media channels. Some writers suggest that discussion of space aliens (i.e., whether they are perceived as benign or not) reflects social attitudes to *human* “aliens” or foreigners.
    Notice also the key role of movies and television in molding this popular consciousness: The Day the Earth Stood Still, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters and E.T., and the X-Files are all rather important influences.
    Anyway, considering that the idea of UFO’s has evolved so much from the airships of a century ago, or the “things seen in the skies”* of the medieval era, the suspicion naturally arises that the entire phenomenon might be a product of human imagination. Alternatively, there might be an explanation other than space travel. (Apparently magnetism is capable of inducing visions of this nature, through its effects on the brain. Or perhaps the UFO’s are time travelers / extra-dimensional entities / unknown human spacecraft…etc.)
    *(this is from the title of a key paper by Carl Jung, who sees them as similar to dreams or visions–I assume you’ve seen this)

  33. Josh A. on Jun 15, 2010 at 9:32 am

    Actually Robert Thurman, of Tibet House, USA, Professor at Columbia University (Uma Thurman’s dad), has PodCast’ed about UFO’s. I don’t believe he is a Rinpoche though. What he said was, I am disappointed by our modern depiction of UFO’s. In Buddha’s time they were tall and beautiful and full of gems and precious stones beautiful from head to toe. I watch “Close encounters of the Third kind” and they all seem like frail little wimps. He said something about our modern culture being afraid of the ‘real deal’, in other words, we think we are so advanced but if we saw a 10 foot tall male ‘alien’ with beautiful angelic human features with enormous precious gems hanging, we would go crazy! Thurman said he was ‘disappointed’ when the alien comes out of the ship with his super skinny arms and legs (totally non-threatening) going Ahhhhhrrr-Ahhhh with its hands in front like a zombie. He said in Buddha’s time they were much more beautiful and worthy of envy. (and in my own words: hatred). I love Kechara!

  34. Joey on Jun 15, 2010 at 9:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    It’s somewhat inspiring to read about Rinpoche’s interests, although for a moment i thought i was one of them aliens, then i read the comments and i was disappointed. now i realize my imagination can be that far off haha.
    I havent watched the videos yet but i do believe in parallel universes that run concurrently with ours because many things we have in our world seem to be impossible to come from evolution alone, which means that somehow that their worlds are affecting us…just what i feel about the whole alien theory. maybe im thinking too much haha.

  35. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 14, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Dear firefly,
    Hehe…from Vajra Yogini land? That land is called Kechara in sanskrit and Dakpo Kacho in Tibetan. Mother Vajra Yogini, Heruka and Yamantaka resides there.
    Ok, I won’t be humble…I am from Kechara in Sunway Mas, Petaling Jaya…hehe
    But this Kechara in Sunway Mas can be the gateway to the REAL Kechara Land where mother Vajra Yogini resides. I want everyone including you to get there.
    Tsem Tulku

  36. firefly on Jun 14, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche,
    Thanks for your reply. I think you must be from Vajrayogini land… hahaha, don’t be humble

  37. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Dear Firefly,
    Of course my students and me are all from here!! Heheeh…It’s just a joke that we are so unique and different that we are maybe from another planet. Heheheh
    Rest assured, we are all from here!!!
    Much care to you,
    Tsem Tulku
    PS. Practice Tsongkapa Guru Yoga well with Migtseyma and ascend the Paradise of Tushita!

  38. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    My Dear Betsy,
    You can have any interest you like. It doesn’t matter what others think of your interests. Life is so short and we can’t live our lives for others. They can’t live our lives for us also. We just don’t harm and we can do what we like.
    Much good luck to you and keep being different and keep up your wide interests. It just shows your mind is intelligent and inquisitive.
    Tsem Tulku

  39. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Dear Leong Li,
    Aliens can fall under the human realm. Not all humanoids need to look like us or live just on earth. There are so many planets for humans or humanoids to exist.
    There are so many other habitable planets and solar systems that we cannot get to. Many beings abide there also. Earth is just a small speck.
    See my post of Stephen Hawking and read what I wrote. Watch the video of Stephen Hawking I posted also.
    Much care and good wishes to you,
    Tsem Tulku

  40. firefly on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    I have always believed that this universe is very vast and mysterious with all kinds of possibilities. This makes life interesting too. Thanks for your sharing.
    I was just wondering why u feel that some of your students and even yourself is not from here… where do you think you are from?
    I myself feel sometimes that i have come back from a paradise. Though this is something that i have never shared with anyone who knows me personally. This is due to some very strong pullings i feel towards certain Buddha figures and also some very strong kind of longing to return there… am i just hallucinating.. maybe.

  41. Leong Li on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    Rinpoche,
    TQ so much for all your teachings & sharings. Those were my fav subjects as a kid too. I’m still very much intrigued by the mysteries of it. Just a thought-I read that there are 6 realms-hell,hungry spirits,animals,human,demi-god,god. So where does UFO & aliens fall under?
    It’s always so interesting to read your blog. Thank you for your unending contribution to all sentient beings. It inspires & moves me to come out of my laziness & selfishness.
    Endless thanks,
    Leong Li Li

  42. susan on Jun 14, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche
    Thank you for posting the videos. Growing up, i’ve always been drawn to the UFO,unexplained mysteries,aliens,religion,life after death section of the bookstore. I remember writing on aliens and people being abducted for a school project. the teacher thought i was abit off…well, i still am abit off. haha…
    I do believe that there are other life forms outside of our solar system…there must be.
    much thanks
    susan

  43. betsy on Jun 14, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Look beyond. Think more. Keep your mind wondering, discovering and learning. Don’t be stuck where you are.
    P.S. I have very varied interests. It isn’t just meditation, mantras, shambala, malas, auras, and enlightenment all the time. I have many interests and they are very wide. So I am going to blog about them and share. Each time you read my posts, a part of me is shared with you. That is nice. I am the only Tibetan Lama that blogs about UFO’s, but you know what, I never said I would fit the mould. I am different, ‘controversial’ by some, strange, not the typical lama if you will, unconventional, and just being myself. Some find me refreshing and some may not. But it’s ok. I am coming to terms with myself now too and you should too. Hehe. I am not trying to be ‘different’. I just am I guess. But it is a harmless different. Maybe I am just waiting ….E.T. go home for me too???
    What a message!
    Dear Rinpoche, Thanks for blog. For first time i feel ok that i got too wide different interest which sometime people told me i am weird due to we got to maintain our “status”
    Thank you so much.

  44. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 14, 2010 at 6:55 am

    Dear John,
    What a lovely and warm message you have left. Thank you so much.
    Tsem Tulku

  45. John Colquhoun on Jun 14, 2010 at 6:40 am

    I haven’t watched the vids yet as it is bed time for me here! But as i read through i felt that you have shared something of yourself with us, and to me it seems fair to share something of myself in return, I hope to meet you one day and to pay back in any way i can the benefit you (and all at Kechara) have been to me in showing me how to be a better person, to be myself but better. (still much to be done…)
    Thankyou Rinpoche
    Jon 🙂

    This is kind of hard to believe and shocking to imagine the weirdest addiction of people in this planet, they are extremely strange. People can become addicted to actions, feelings, or behaviors, not just substances. There must be something behind of every addiction, I don’t think they are crazy or mentally ill, it’s their weird enjoyment for a short time.

    I had a friend in my primary school who eats mud during rainy days, she told me, it smells good and she enjoys doing it during her play time. I found it strange but has she grow up in different environment she forget about her addiction. So, I strongly believe, all behaviors can be changed when the person gains self-awareness and actually wants to change. Thanks for the interesting sharing and recall of my childhood friend.

    nteresting read of this history of how Dorje Shugden practice came into light . Since Dorje Shugden was introduced into the Sakya tradition, there have been many Sakya throne holders that practiced Dorje Shugden. Out of the 42 supreme throne holders throughout the history of the Sakya tradition, six of the thrones holders are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They have built chapels to him, composed prayers and pujas (kangsols) to him and even propagated his practice amongst their disciples. They cannot be wrong and in fact as confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being. Dorje Shugden kangsol (prayer) to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden composed by him is still widely used today. Dorje Shugden must be a powerful Dharma protector that Sakya tradition have been long relying. It has proven that Dorje Shugden is not a minor practice. Interesting read , may more people read this post to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post .

    There are lots of people have more than one reason for choosing vegetarianism. Many people choose a vegetarian diet out of concern over animal rights or the environment and others may be based on religious beliefs or even for healthier lifestyle.

    Regardless of whether you choose a vegetarian way of life, it’s always a healthy idea to eat a wide variety of foods and try out new foods when you can.

    Thank you for the sharing and compiling the list of vegetarian restaurants and organic shops in Klang Valley. I am glad to know whereabout and hoping to try them.

    Begtse Chen, a deity of alien origin, was incorporated into the pantheon of Tibetan Buddhism as a protector of the Dharma. This Proyector is one of the eight famous Dharmapala in Tantric Buddhism. Also known as red Mahakala and is especially revered in Mongolia where the origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century. It has become the mainstay of Protector practice in Mongolia. Interesting read.

    Interesting read of Kunkhyen Choku Ozer was a lineage master of the Manjushri Namasamgiti Tantra. He became known as Kunkhyen Choku Ozer due to his ability to penetrate the meaning of the great Buddhist treatises merely just by glancing at it. He could memolised texts just by reading it once. Reading this post and information at least I can know he is also a part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage. He is also famed for establishing the ancient monastery of Dakpo Tsele.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing as many of us would not have known this GREAT Lama was part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teachings on Dorje Shugden and explanation on retreat. Learning and practicing this Dorje Shugden’s practice have indeed benefited many people. And more so when to do a retreat. . We are all very fortunate to be given an opportunity to meet Tsem Rinpoche and learning, practicing all these precious teachings coming from a pure lineage that can be traced back to the time of the great Lama Tsongkhapa. A very detailed explanation on why we need the retreat and the way to do the retreat.
    Thanks again Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Tsem Rinpoche had been working tirelessly teaching Dharma in his whole life, giving many opportunities for us to learn , practice Dharma teachings. Whatever goes wrong we should admit it as our own fault and not our guru. Rinpoche ‘s love to spread Dharma teachings and nothing else. He had followed his advice of his guru to come all the way from India to teach in Malaysia. Reading all those meaningful quotes and sayings in this article tells us a thousand words of truth which we should not take it lightly. We could in fact learn from it and stop blaming others.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    News of UFO always fascinating to me . There are many UFO sighting hotspots exist across the globe, it has long since scientist have a keen interest to investigate further. UFOs has become a modern sensation for hunters , scientist and so forth. There was only the ambiguous testament of witnesses so far all happen and appeared mysteries without any substantial evidence. But the Japanese government has admitted and believes definitely they the UFO exist. Well the Japanese government has even made a statement about alien spacecraft appearing on Earth. Many people have denied the existence of UFOs, but with so many UFO sightings they cannot denied it after all. Sound interesting.
    The Buddha has once said that we are not the only beings in existence and we are not alone on earth. Interesting videos to watch.

    Khuton Choje and Pandita Akaramati were both great disciples of Atisha. Pandita Akaramati was a great Buddhist master, scholar and also the abbot of Solnak Thangpoche Monastery in the Yarlung Valley of central Tibet. He did played a significant role in the fusion of the old Buddhist curriculum existing in Tibet. While Khuton Choje who is well known for the special teachings he requested of Atisha. He is known to have composed a commentary to Atisha’s Satyadvayavatara.

    Thank you for the sharing, fishing is an extremely cruel hobby that causes immense suffering and damage to fish, even when they are released back into the water. However human does not realize what karma befalls but they have great time, fun going fishing.

    I believe children are always eager to learn fast as they grow but parents has to monitor their child’s activity and behavior is especially important when they begin to demand for their choice.

This kind hearted boy has to go through a lot of hassle to fulfill his mission. I felt so proud for Christian and also to his great parents to guide the little boy towards the development of kindness and a good attitude from an early age.

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.

    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

    Naseer asked: Hi My name is Naseer Ahmed 8th dec 1979. Life path 1 Im looking to add to my name slightly... change it too... Naseer Al Ahmed... Would this be more complimentary as far as for the business front... or would it not make any difference
    pastor answered: Hello Naseer, As per your question, your Life Path Number is 1. The Life Path Number according to the system of numerology used on our website is calculated using your date of birth. Therefore, a change in name will not affect your Life Path Number. Some of the other calculators on the same page do however use your name. One of the smaller calculators you may be interested in is the Achievement Number, but again, this only uses your date of birth for the calculation. You can find it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/numerology/numerology-calculator.html You may also be interested in two of our other pages: Chinese Zodiac - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html Thank you for your question. I hope this helps.

    Sandra asked: After making a food offering to the three jewels (which we will eat for lunch etc), should we think of it as a blessing and partake?
    pastor answered: Hello Sandra, When making food offerings to the Three Jewels, which you eat yourself, when you recite the prayer and make the offering, you should visualise that the Buddhas receive your food offering and because you have made an offering, they are very pleased. It also fulfills one of the Refuge commitments, which is to offer the first portion of whatever we eat and drink to the Three Jewels, while remembering their kindness. You can then partake of the meal and consider it a blessing from the Three Jewels. Alternatively, you can set out a plate (which you reserve for this purpose) of food, which you can offer on your altar. Similarly, once the food has been left on your altar for a while, you can later remove it and consume it as a blessing. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Is intovertedness a bad quality? Since Buddha is so altruistic and this is the opposite trait, it must be bad. How do you think one should lessen introverted tendencies?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Introvertedness is not a bad quality. Altruism and compassion are different from being an introvert or extrovert. Introverts are generally quieter people, less expressive of their emotions, while extroverts are the opposite. Buddhist practice is not about expression of emotion. Rather the altruistic and compassionate teachings are more about how you help other people and sentient beings, physically or emotionally. If the qualities of introverted-ness are stopping you from developing these, then they need to change. But this may not be necessary, depending on the qualities that you are talking about. You can do simple meditations to building up the energy of compassion in your mindstream and you will see that you actions will automatically start to be more compassionate and altruistic. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: How should one behave when negative karma is being purified? How can we know if bad karma is being purified? Do we accumulate positive karma simultaneously when doing purification practices? Many thanks for your response.
    pastor answered: Hello again Sandra, There are two ways in which karma can be purified, the first is through our own efforts alone and the second is through our own effort, combined with a purification practice. Through our own efforts: this means that you transform your mind enough to not react negatively in any situation and only react in a positive manner. For example, you may have the karma to get angry. So you get into situations which makes you angry. If you react normally, then you will get angry again, this will only lead you to create more karma of being angry. But if you make the effort not to get angry in those situations then you do not create or multiply that karma. The original karma you have may lead you to be in those types of situations again, but if you do not get angry then after a while you start to purify that karma. Through your own efforts, combined with a purification practice: as you are working on transforming your mind, you can rely on the practices that help you to purify your karma, such as the practice of Vajrasattva or the 35 Confessional Buddhas. This boosts your ability to purify negative karma, based on the enlightened energies of the Buddhas. This however is only truly effective when combined with the Four Opponent Powers. You can read more about that here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html In general, when karma is being purified then you should remain level-headed and not act out of emotion or habit, but from your understanding of the workings of karma and the Dharma. But actually, this should not only be when karma is being purified. You should act and behave in this way all the time according to the Dharma, then you are, up to a point, always purifying karma. It is one of the reasons that so much emphasis is placed on refraining from negative actions and engaging in positive actions using your body, speech and mind, because these are the three means or 'doors' with which you interact with the world. At our level, we cannot tell if karma is being purified or not, only those who are more highly attained can tell. However, that is one of the reasons the Buddhist texts advise study of and belief in karma. If there is karma, then it can be purified, and the way to do so is transform your mind and invoke upon the enlightened beings. So if you are doing both, you can rest assured that you are in fact purifying your karma. When you purify negative karma, whether just through your own efforts or combined with a purification practice you collect merit, not positive karma. If you simply do a good action, you collect good karma. But if you are practicing the Dharma with the intention of achieving enlightenment, you take refuge, engage in the practice, and dedicate at the end, then you develop merit, not positive karma. If you want to read more about how karma works and how to purify it in more detail, I suggest you read a Lamrim text such as Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order from your local bookstore or get online here (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand).

    Sandra asked: Hello pastors, thank you for your response to my earlier question. Do divination predictions change frequently? Why does that happen?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Divinations, compared to astrological predictions, are much more accurate. There are many types of divination, but those based on the practice of enlightened beings are very accurate. Three of the most well-known in Tibetan Buddhism are the divination practices of Manjushri, Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. You can read more about Dorje Shugden's dice divination here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugdens-dice-divination.html Questions that are asked during divinations are much more specific than the types of topics that astrological predictions can help with, therefore are based on very specific types of karma. This means that if you asked a divination question twice, without taking remedial actions in between, then the answer would most likely be the same, given that all the prerequisites have been held by the diviner and the divinations are genuine. However, if a divination is done and then remedial actions recommended, such as various practices or pujas, and these are done to the letter, then if the question is asked again, then the results would differ. This is because when engaging in these practices or pujas, either you generate the merit necessary to overpower the negative effects of the karma, or you purify the negative effects of the karma creating the situation. This however, is generally not done. You wouldn't ask the same question twice or over and over again. The reason for this is because one of the factors that comes into play when seeking divination is faith. This is faith in the fact that the remedial actions recommended will help whatever situation you are facing. Having seen H.E. Tsem Rinpoche do countless divinations for people, I can attest to this. Those who have faith and follow through with the advice, see a great improvement in the situation that led them to ask the divination question in the first place. Those that did not follow the advice either at all or not fully, did not see any improvement. And this makes sense, because they did not purify the effects of the karma enough, or generate enough merit. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    sandra asked: How much importance should we give to astrological predictions or chart readings? Are these readings susceptible to change all the time,i.e, in the context of planetary movements? Can our own effort/actions supercede what is predicted in our birth chart?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your interesting question. You are absolutely correct about the universal principle of change. According to Buddhist practice, astrological predictions are based upon a fixed point in time. Take for example, your moment of birth, which most astrological readings take as the main point of reference. At that specific moment, there would have been various energies or planetary alignments, etc. Combined together, they are said to give an accurate prediction of what will occur to a person throughout their life. This however, is based on one's birth karma, to be born at that specific point in time and location. This birth karma also provides the driving force behind what will occur in a person's life, if that karma is not changed somehow. Hence, that is why astrological predictions can give very accurate readings on someone's personality, as well as life events. Birth karma provides the main force behind all other karma to come into play. That is why it is given importance in astrology. There are also more advanced methods to take into account planetary and energetical movements to give even more detailed and precise predictions that can even be made down to the month, day or hour of a person's life. In Buddhism, however, we believe that karma can be changed. It can multiply, be purified or exhausted, or the effects of that karma can be overpowered by another karma or spiritual merit. In these cases, the outcome will change. The way in which this happens is varied. It can be as simple as doing some prayers (to generate spiritual merit) or changing your behaviour, environment or location, the way you think, and the ways in which you react in various situations. That is why in Buddhist astrological systems, emphasis is placed on remedial measures to counteract negative outcomes. For example, someone may be born with an angry disposition from an astrological point of view. If this person goes through life acting from this anger, then the predictions based on the time of birth will occur. However, a remedial action can be undertaken, such as the person pracitising Chenrezig, who is the Buddha of compassion, or the person doing some form of charity work. These remedial actions generate compassion in the mind of the person, which counteracts the anger. As this happens and the karma is changed, then the person no longer needs to feels the negative effects of any bad astrological (or more correctly - karmic) situations. There are even some practices that specifically help to counteract negative astrological influences and help you to change things. Such an example is Black Manjushri. Within Tibetan Buddhism, according to your time and date of birth, you also have what is known as a 'Birth Buddha'. This is basically an enlightened being that you have an affinity with in this life. General remedial actions include making images of this particular Buddha or engaging in this Buddha's practice. This combined with a change in how we live - otherwise known as Mind Transformation in the Buddhist context - changes astrological outcomes. However, if we continue living without controlling our actions, words and thoughts, the predictions made using astrological readings will most likely still occur. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Sangita. asked: i want to buy my own house.which mantra i should chant to have my own house.kindly reply.
    pastor answered: Dear Sangita, Thank you for your question. Everything in our lives, whether good or bad is due to our karma. This is karma we have accumulated either in previous lives or earlier on in this life. You can learn more about this here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/discovering-yourself-a-teaching-on-karma-mindstream.html Sometimes, we go through obstacles or need some form of spiritual help to assist us in improving our situations. In these circumstances we can rely on the practice of certain deities. One of these deities is the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. You can read more about this deity and his practice here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/beginners-introduction-to-dorje-shugden.html You can learn more about Dorje Shugden's practice here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html.

    Laurence Brahm asked: Hello la. I would like to get in touch with Rinpoche. My name is Laurence Brahm and I've directed the two films including Searching for The Lotus Born Master.

    Dan asked: Dear pastors, some vegetarians said egg can eat. While some say no. What is your opinion on this. Thank you
    pastor answered: Dear Dan, Thank you for your question. There are differing views on eggs as part of the vegetarian diet. Some people would say that since eggs we get these days are not fertilized, then they are vegetarian since there is no life involved at that point. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche was vegetarian but consumed eggs, as long as they were free-range and organic, because Rinpoche was against the battery farming system which produces the majority of eggs these days. There is a lot of animal cruelty involved with battery farming. Most people who do not include egg in their vegetarian diets do this because of the harm is causes the hens during the farming process, and also because they can view eating eggs as taking a life. That being said, within Buddhism, there are certain practices that strictly prohibit the consumption of eggs, as with other types of food. This can be for a number of reasons, which are too long to be discussed here. I would say that most people in the Kechara organisation eat eggs although vegetarian, but that may also be a cultural thing. Some people however, have taken the extra step and live a vegan lifestyle, which definitely does not include egg, as an extension of their practice of compassion for other sentient beings. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Bradley asked: Would offerings or prayers like Sangsol offering be more potent if we had the prayers translated to the language of a given geographical area? Example in England where Celtic was once spoken? Would the local deities or spirits be pleased we took the time to do so? They are far older than us.
    pastor answered: Dear Bradley, Thank you for your interesting question. Actually the sangsol prayers will be effective when done in any language. There are two main reasons for this. The first is that when you recite the sangsol prayer, you are actually invoking upon an enlightened being first, in this case, it is Dorje Shugden. Therefore, when you make the requests of the local deities to accept the offering, be calm and improve local circumstances etc, it is not coming from you. You are actually beseeching Dorje Shugden to help you in this matter. Hence, it is Dorje Shugden who is communicating with the local deities, not us. Secondly, deities and gods, as they do not have physical bodies, do not require ordinary language. Language as we know it is actually linked to our physical bodies. Local deities and gods, etc, because they don't have the same type of physical form as us, actually recognise our prayers through intention and effort rather than language. Therefore, prayers such as the sangsol prayers are effective no matter which language they are physical recited in. I hope this makes sense, if it does not, please let us know and we will clarify further. Thank you.
