One of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s most ardent aspirational prayers is “Where there is no Dharma, let there be the Dharma”, which aptly represents the deeds of Rinpoche’s many previous incarnations, known for bringing Buddhism to places where it had not yet flourished. Now, as a modern Buddhist teacher, Rinpoche connects millions around the world to the sacred essence of Dharma through various social media platforms, YouTube and tsemrinpoche.com where all of these teachings, including those in this post, are provided for free.

This post contains video footage and teachings taken during some of Rinpoche’s travels. In Hong Kong, Rinpoche shared teachings with us at the magnificent Lantau Buddha. In the United States, Rinpoche showed us one of his favourite childhood haunts, Turkey Swamp; and revealed nostalgic memories Rinpoche had of the people closest to him after visiting his adoptive parents’ gravesite. In Thailand, Rinpoche led us to many magnificent Buddhist temples and unique floating markets. In Nepal, Rinpoche gave us a tour of famous pilgrimage sites. At home in Malaysia, Rinpoche played host and showed us the temples in various parts of the country while giving us a taste of the local culture, such as joining Rinpoche on a rickshaw ride. It is easy to tell from this precious footage that no matter where Rinpoche went, he always used the opportunity to share his Dharma knowledge, with no other motivation than his innate compassion to benefit others.

We are happy to share this collection of teaching videos with you, and may you be inspired by them.

“Dharma work is something of a blessing, privilege and honour. We should never do Dharma work thinking we are doing the centre, our guru, others and Buddha a favour. If we think like that, then even offering flowers and incense to the Buddha is doing Buddha a favour? Not so.”

    Bali is a magical Island probably the most well-known and most visited Indonesian island. A part of Indonesia archipelago, Bali owns the panorama and unique culture that make this island an ideal location for a vacation.

    It’s shock to discover people in Bali are eating dog meat. Aside from the cruelty, the greatest shock was to discover that tourists are unwittingly eating dog meat and fueling the mobile dog meat vendors are trawling popular beaches in Bali selling satays from buckets, deliberately not telling people the origin of the meat.

    This is causing shocking animal cruelty over the popular holiday destination and
    definitely putting the local Balinese and foreign tourists’ health at risk .Thanks for the thoughtful sharing and bringing awareness to many.

    Thank you for the informative and historical sharing of The Guangxi Community in Bentong. It’s interesting to know the large Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    A small town famous for its locally produced ginger, durians, tofu puff, bean curd, bean curd puff, fresh vegetables, it has so much more to offer for wandering foodies.

    Success requires hard work, however hard work rewards with much more than success alone. Guangxi people of today are one of the most successful communities in Bentong, producing successful people in every strata of society.

    Great Buton Rinchen Drub’s lifestorys truly inspiring, interesting which I simply love reading over and over again. The Great Buton Rinchen Drub was one of the most erudite of scholars of Tibet. To this day he is well remembered as a prodigious scholar and writer and is Tibet’s most celebrated historian. He catalogued thousands of the Buddhist scriptures and wrote the famous book, the History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. Many Tibetan scholars utilize in their study even as today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Great memories of Rinpoche meeting with Guru Deva Rinpoche a very learned and qualified Lama,that has changed Rinpoche life. He is considered to be the reincarnation of one of the 84 great Mahasiddhas of ancient India. He studied under many great masters as such like Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Yongzin Trijang Dorje Chang, and so forth. We have Tsem Rinpoche today all because of Guru Deva Rinpoche who had contributed towards Rinpoche’s spiritual journey. The journey was tough for Rinpoche , having gone through and had travelled from America to India. Having remained and continued to languish under the terrible conditions in India till he travelled to Nepal and meeting Guru Deva Rinpoche. Everything changed from then on. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin Chow for this sharing.

    Buton Rinchen Drub is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators,writers and proponent of the Kalachakra Tantra. Even as a very young child, Rinpoche exhibited extraordinary abilities. He studied and received many tantric transmissions and empowerments from many other teachers. Well respected by many and was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism. Over the period of his life he composed at least twenty-six prolific volumes of commentaries. His legacy included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He travelled tremendously throughout Tibet and many places giving teachings, empowerments, transmissions, and ordinations at monasteries along the way. Interesting read of a great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Pema Lingpa was a famous saint and siddha of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. In the history of the Nyingma school in Bhutan, Pema Lingpa is second only in importance to Padmasambhava himself. Many auspicious miraculous signs appeared when was born as such even as a child he was indeed extraordinary learning everything from reading and writing to ironwork and carpentry without receiving any instruction. Interesting read of the extraordinary enlightened activities , stories and biography of Pema Lingpa . He was highly regarded by all four of the principal schools of Vajrayana Buddhism. Pema Lingpa spent his life revealing the precious treasures of Guru Rinpoche, giving empowerments and teachings. He composed many religious texts and ritual, gave initiations and even established monasteries . He was known as a discoverer of spiritual treasures. He left a legacy establishing a tradition that endures to this day. He prophesied that in the future he would return as the Buddha Dorjé Nyingpo in the pure land of Pemako.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing of discovering the heart desire numbers. Numerology is the belief in the divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. The heart’s desire is seen as part of the larger picture which includes the life path, expression, date of birth and personality. Each person has different numbers that help them identify who they are and what their purpose in life. Each letters in our name has a message which is hidden and plays a crucial role in our life.

    I think this article will benefits many who are having a very hard time to achieve their dreams and to find out their true passion in their life. I had a good read and happy to discover my heart desire number.

    For sarassitham – For years scientists and experts have been trying hard to get the bottom answers and hard evidence of aliens existing . Finally they did it and very close to the answers through the video….a true evidence. Throughout history, many common myths and legends mention incredible flying machines and how ancient people travelled great distances through the air. I do believe thousands of years ago, ancient mankind was visited by incredible flying machines. There are various places around the world such as the Step pyramid in Saqqara, Egypt, a burial ground in Columbia , Mountain of Solomon and Peru, and many more. All these architectural structure are amazing, how and exactly, did they build those structures those days thousands years ago without modern machineries? Made of millions of precisely hewn stones weighing tons each, even with today’s cranes and other construction equipment, building it would be a very challenging task. Scientists suspect that over centuries aliens have visited Earth. Could it be artifacts of aliens or did ancient humans have extra-terrestrial help ??? It is still a mysteries to this days. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    This article is truly inspiring. Ms Chen contributed most of her time working, her passion was a strong desire that she was able to do amazing things. It is indeed a rare sight to see a person who is able to be selfless at such a deep level in many ways. I do agree that we definitely need more Ms Chens in this world to inspire and to help others.

    Ngawang Wangyal known to many as Geshe Wangyal and the first American lama introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. He was a Buddhist lama and scholar of Kalmyk origin born in Russia. He travelled through Russia to Tibet and spent the next 20 years traveling throughout Asia, learning English and translating . It was during the Chinese invasion he escaped to India and later went to American. Despite the many challenges he faced , he built a monastery been the first temple in the Western hemisphere, sponsored Tibetan monk scholars to assist him in teachings. That’s how Tibetan Buddhism spread in the west. His long list of accomplishments would include pioneering efforts in establishing Tibetan Buddhism’s intellectual bona fides in American academia. During the last several years of his life he worked tirelessly on his final book.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring untold story of how Tibetan Buddhism first came to America through one great Lama.

    Kalarupa is one a wrathful emanation of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, manifesting as a Dharma Protector. Kalarupa displaying as the direct spiritual protector force for all ugliness arising from the true inner spiritual obstacles of fear, hatred, pride and jealousy . As an emanation of Manjushri, Kalarupa’s practice ultimately helps us to destroy ignorance and develop wisdom to overcome our anger and suffering. Interesting read of the story how Kalarupa arose as a Protector. Beautiful pictures of Kalarupa in many forms.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, even though I still have more to understand.

    Animals are sentient beings who like us have feelings, if we hurt them they feel pain and if we treat them with love and care, they would feel loved. The more we human know about the animals the more we feel how amazing they are.

    In Buddhism, offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. One such offerings such as foods. flowers, and so forth. Reading this post gives us a more understanding of some do’s and don’ts regarding food offerings. Offering food is a meritorious act that also reminds us not to be greedy or selfish.
    GREAT guidance , precious teachings and listening from those videos tell us more. All about making offerings, the importance of our motivation and the results of making offerings to the Three Jewels
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers 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

One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

    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
