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???

    Some UFO sightings can be explained away with scientific reasoning. sightings, and unsolved mysteries of the UFO have been going for sometime. As Buddha had mentioned clearly WE ARE NOT ALONE. Amazing ….Spotting the same image or object from 2 different places 100 miles apart at Mexico. Both similarity silver in colour. Many people witnessed these sightings it cannot be wrong. Seeing is believing. Interesting videos…Dorthy the lady with good footage who had witnessed the UFO is incredible. Using different camera she captured it. All these been unexplained by scientist. She’s very believable so as the guy Jerry after witnessing and hearing it too. Dorthy intend to continue filming pictures of all these UFOs as long as she could. Hoping one day someone could understands it. Wow …all in she had taken about 3,000 pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing

    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.

  5. Jimmy on Oct 19, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    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…

  6. 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….

  7. 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!

  8. 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:

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

  12. 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 🙂

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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…..

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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 🙂

  21. 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!

  22. 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.

  23. 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 🙂

  24. 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)

  25. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.”

  29. 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.

  32. 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

  33. 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)

  34. 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!

  35. 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.

  36. 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

  37. 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

  38. 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!

  39. 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

  40. 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

  41. 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.

  42. 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

  43. 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

  44. 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.

  45. 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

  46. 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 🙂

    Wonderful indeed………our Guru Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche’s biography “The Promise” in Mongolian for those Mongolian readers. More people will be able to read and understand better. The truth and the only truth all about Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden controversy. The Mongolian has a long history and connection with Manjushri Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Dr Matthew William King great work done on the research on Dorje Shugden . His research shows that Dorje Shugden had played a central role in both monastic and political life in Mongolia. Zaya Pandita, an accomplished translator, linguist and scholar, Lobsang Tamdin, a prolific author and Mongolian lamas had preserved the tradition of Dorje Shugden through ways as such scholarship and study, and also via active propitiation. Mongolia’s own lamas did independently promoting and encouraging the practice centuries ago. Yet there is still some who claimed Dorje Shugden is a evil spirit. Even though there is clear evidence ,Mongolia’s long history of reliance on this enlightened Protector. Zaya Pandita and Lobsang Tamdin were masters of sutra, tantric adepts, and the peers and equals of Tibetan lamas of their time, they cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. Interesting read article on The Mongol Invention of the Dorjé Shukden and Trülku Drakpa Gyeltsen Literary Corpus (1913-1919) by Dr Matthew William King.
    Thank you with folded hands Zava Damdin Rinpoche for preserving the works for generations to come.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing for more and more people to understand better.

    We are very blessed for being able to learn Buddhism . Learning Dharma and putting into actions remind us of the Buddha’s teachings. The Dharma reveals truths as taught by the Buddha. It also gives us a way to live life that transform our mind and leading us towards achieving enlightenment. Having the opportunity to learn the Buddha’s teachings and cultivate ourselves is indeed very precious. We have to sincerely and consistently practice nor matter what happens and be true to ourselves. The efficaciousness of this all depends on our faith, loyalty and devotion to our Guru. Dharma is beautiful I do agree with it as explained by Rinpoche. Dharma is the moral law combined with spiritual discipline that guides one’s life. And is extremely approachable by everyone and has since changed my life.

    One of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. The temple of the Choijin Lama is an important example of Chinese-style religious architecture. It is one of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. Hidden among the tallest sky scappers this hidden gem is an architectural wonder. It was the home of Luvsan Haidav Choijin Lama, who is the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan. The State Oracle of Mongolia had a long historic connection with Dorje Shugden. Even took trance of 3 different deities , Nechung, Tsiu Marpo and Dorje Shugden. It is a temple with a lot of old, ancient artifacts as Choijin Lama would go into a trance. After been through historic changes it was reopened as a museum. The Choijin Lama Temple’s history is documented with many religious hardships and interesting happenings. Interesting read and detailed explanation for one to understand better . A must see place when travelling there .

    Breaking news the Tribune Journal published December 15, 2017 H H Dalai-lama planning to visit China. Since exile HH the Dalai Lama left Tibet in 1959, returning to China will be a wonderful reunion for many. This potential visit to China by HH the Dalai Lama might lead to those who left their homeland able to visit Tibet again. Millions of Tibetans in Tibet would definitely wish to see Dalai Lama again. The Dalai Lama would be too happy as great memories to see places as such his palace, relatives and so forth. If the return is successful all negative attacks on Dorje Shugden practitioners should cease immediately. There are indeed many benefits if Dalai Lama visit to China as it would clear the doubts of some. May Dalai Lama fondest wish come true soon.

    This mandala offering is the symbolic offering of the prosperity of the whole universe. Mandala offering is a powerful method for accumulating extensive merit if we do it with proper visualization. Doing it this way we dedicate the merit from each offering for the sentient beings as it is performed. It is very effective for the mind. It is important to understand all about the offerings. Doing the mandala offering is a way of clearing out all these negative states of mind. The mandala offering purifies our attachment, the stinginess, the miserliness, the clinging mind. It enriches the mind with the positive potential from giving. We create a lot of positive potential or merit just by giving. The mandala offering is training us to develop the mind that takes delight and joy in making other people happy. In doing so, we create merit. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with explanations.

    Changkya Rolpai Dorje a Grand Lama of China, Imperial Art Consultant, a principal Tibetan Buddhist teacher in the Qing court. He is closely associate with Qianlong Emperor of China. This relationship proved extremely significant. He served as Qianlong’s main Buddhist teacher and adviser in matters related to Buddhism. Including art, literature, religious initiations and practices, and diplomacy. He was recognized as a reincarnation of the previous Changkya Lama. As a Buddhist administrator in Beijing, he played an important role in founding Yonghegong Temple , a monastic college for Mongol, Manchu, and Chinese monks. He was also instrumental in developing the systems of iconography, cataloguing, and inscribing that would prove so important to the Qianlong emperor’s projects in Buddhist art. Truly talented.

    Giuseppe Tucci was a scholar of oriental cultures, specializing in Tibet and the history of Buddhism. He is considered one of the founders of the academic field of Buddhist Studies. Tibetan painted scrolls, also known as thangkas came to Tibet from India. They
    are synonymous with Tibetan culture and religion.The tradition of thangka painting which is also known as scroll painting came to Tibet from India. It was largely influenced by the art form developed in Nepal. Tucci, highly literate in Sanskrit and Tibetan as well as fluent in many Himalayan languages, was the first western scholar to travel widely through the Tibet and India. Thangka served as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha. The scroll paintings are framed with colour stain ,an art form with unique features in Tibetan culture. Wow in one of the thangkas he even described the mythical kingdom related with the Kalachakra Tantra and its divine kings. What he did was truly amazing.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing explaining all about it.

    Kalmykia is a sparsely populated republic and country of Russia located directly north of the North Caucasus in Eastern Europe. Buddhism’s revival in Kalmykia can be traced to the political liberalization which led to the construction of the republic’s first Buddhist temple. The Kalmyk nomads, arrived about 400 years ago bringing their faith with them from Asia. Having a long complex history views of religious revival in Kalmykia. The Kalmyks and Russians have had close ties for centuries. Kalmykia is the only state in the whole of Europe where the majority of the population is Buddhist. A beautiful country to visit with many attractions such as Temple of the Golden Abode of Buddha, Pagoda Seven Days, Buddhist Temple Syakusn-Sume and so forth.

    Reading this post again just wondering how this amazing Hanging Temple was built without modern technology. This Hanging Temple, built into a cliff near Mount Heng in Datong City, Shanxi Province, China. Built more than 1500 years ago by a monk named Liao Ran. It has survived since than with many locals and tourist visiting it yearly. It is the only existing unique temple with the combination of three Chinese traditional philosophies of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. The most outstanding feature of the Hanging Monastery is the side-by-side sculptures of Laozi, Confucius, and Shakyamuni. The temple was one of the five most scared mountains in China considered as a sacred site for pilgrimage. Wish to see for myself this unique temple someday.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Duldzin Dragpa Gyaltsen the first Kyorlung Ngari Tulku, was one of the principal disciples of Je Tsongkhapa and also the founder of the Gelugpa school. Duldzin Dragpa Gyaltsen is renowned for his strict adherence to the Vinaya or Buddhist monastic code. Duldzin Dragpa Gyaltsen was the founder of Tsunmo Tsal monastery in Tagtse Dzong , Central Tibet. Was one of the more notable previous lives of Dorje Shugden where in this incarnation, he had made the promise to arise as a Dharma Protector to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa. Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen was devoted to Lama Tsongkhapa, following all his advice and instructions without breaking any commitments. That’s how the first ever Gelug monastery, Gaden Monastery in Lhasa was built then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

The Unknown

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

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

All attendees are paying homage to Rinpoche and Buddhas before the start of our weekly Dorje Shugden puja. Outwardly, it seems that Dorje Shugden helps practitioners overcoming their obstacles and problems but ultimately Dorje Shugden’s supreme purpose is to help practitioners on their path to Enlightenment. Do join in our weekly DS puja, every Saturday @3 pm at Jalan Seang Tek, Penang. ~by Jacinta

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
