Please view these wonderful large statues built around the world. They commemorate something close to people’s hearts. Something that brings hope, inspiration or a reminder of something people wish to aspire to. The human spirit is uplifted when they see something that gives meaning to them in large splendour. I hope you will be blessed by some of these images and I wish you blessings always.

    Thanks to Tsem Rinpoche, I eventually managed to track the name and location of a Buddha statue I visited in 1986-33 years ago when I was sent by my company for equipment buy-off.
    It was listed in Tsem Rinpoche’s collection as:
    “13. Jibo Kannon at Narita-san temple of Kurume, Fukuoka prefecture, Japan
    Height : 62 m. (Credit to KW Leung)
    This framed 6R photo(6insx8ins) with me and a colleague posing at the base of the Buddha statue stands proudly for so many years in my dining room. I remembered we walked up the spiral staircase inside the statue up to the shoulders where we could look at the majestic view of the surrounding prefecture!
    Thanks again Tsem Rinpoche for helping me relocate this lost memory! 🙏🙏

    Amazing there many grand statues around the world. There are some of the tallest, oldest, most spectacular, and historically significant statues of Lord Buddha. Buddhism has many different national and local cultures and traditions. Some of these Buddha statues are among the largest in the world. Beautiful and blessful to look at those pictures which paints a thousand words as each pose has a different spiritual significance. Thailand and China top the list of many grand statues across the globe. Big Buddha Statues has benefited many people and the surrounding environment. Such as the Big Manjushri Statues at Mount Wutai, China has attracted many pilgrims over the world . We a group of Kecharians have indeed fortunate to go on a fruitful pilgrimage there few years back.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

  3. Chris on Jan 21, 2019 at 8:51 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us all these beautiful statues around the world. It is not surprising that most of the large Buddha statues are Buddha statues. In Buddhism, we know the benefits of large Buddha statues and we appreciate large Buddha statues. A large Buddha statue is very beneficial to everyone and anything that is around that area.

    The larger the Buddha statue, the more beneficial it is to its surroundings. In history, large Buddha statues are erected to calm the land or to bless the environment and the beings around. Many Buddha statues are erected in places that are prone to natural disasters or accidents. An example will the Leshan Buddha which was intentionally created to calm the turbulent waters of the river in front of it.

    After the Buddha statue was completed, the waters of the river did become calmer and it is much safer for the boats that sail along the river. This is just one of the many benefits of large Buddha statues. KFR is planning to get a big Buddha statue in the future and may everyone that comes to KFR will be blessed and be healed.

  4. Yee Yin on Jan 15, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    There are many nice outdoor Buddha statues all around the world. It is said that a big Buddha statue can calm the environment and pacify calamity of the area. For example, the Big Buddha in Lantau Island in Hong Kong was constructed because there used to be many natural disasters in that area.

    Erecting a big Buddha statue can also give blessings to all sentient beings. The bigger it is, the better because it can be seen by more sentient beings from far. When we see a Buddha image or hear the mantra, an imprint is planted in our mind stream. If we cannot practice Dharma in this lifetime, the imprint will be able to trigger in future when the condition is right for us to practice Dharma.

    To sponsor to construct a big Buddha statue is very meritorious. As long as the statue still stands, we will continue to collect merits even if we have passed away. We may not be able to afford to build a big statue ourselves but Tsem Rinpoche is giving us a lot of opportunities to get involved. In Kechara Forest Retreat, there are many big statues being installed, we should not miss the chance to make our contribution to collect merits.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing the story of how Dorje Shugden healed Tsem Rinpoche through a prestige oracle. It is interesting to know that Dorje Shugden and Tsem Rinpoche have such close relationship that Dorje Shugden would straight away fly to him when Rinpoche needed help.

    Dorje Shugden showed off his healing abilities here and we are indeed fortunate to have the chance to meet and practice the sadhana of such a powerful being. This also showed off the power of faith in the almighty protector Shugden. When we have faith and we are sincere in doing Dharma, the protector will clear our obstacles even if we have a serious condition that can be proven to be fatal.

    Such cases are not rare and it is well known that Dorje Shugden can perform miracles for those who believed in him. This is due to Dorje Shugden’s close affinity with us which enables him to give us the blessings that we need.

    多杰雄登护法寂静尊降神时,以高僧身份示现,能够给予加持、开示、灌顶等,而我们也都知道,多杰雄登就是文殊菩萨的化身,跟文殊菩萨拥有同一个心相续,必然也拥有同等的智慧,这意味着在多杰雄登寂静尊降神和给予开示时,其实跟文殊菩萨示现给予开示是没有分别的。在这末法时期的我们,虽然没机会亲自见到佛陀,但护法透过神谕降神的慈悲示现,却让我们有机会现场接受文殊菩萨的教诲。这是多么殊胜的一件事。

    This fantastic and brave decision of Mr. Jay Wilde for turning his cow farm to arable farming.
    This article was truly amazing of Mr. Jay, switching his family oriented business, by putting his heart and soul successfully running a vegan organic market farm supplying garden produce without using animal products or fertilizers.

    Its was very generous of Mr. Jay to donate all his herd of cows to an animal sanctuary to protect them from the slaughterhouse. An interesting sharing of saving animal and giving them hope.

    Thank you so much for this article. Shantideva immersed himself in study and contemplation. His sacrifice and perseverance laid a path that has guided countless others to Buddhism and continues to do so today. Till this day, his teachings are still studied and revered by Buddhist scholars around the world.

    Shantideva was attracted to spirituality and Buddhism from a very young age. Shantideva’s purity of mind and truthiness of purpose were rewarded with visions of Manjushri. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this article. Even though the move to establish a Buddhist theocracy in the Kizhinga (Kudun) Valley and to declare himself as the Dharma King protected tens of thousands of men, women, and children was ultimately unsuccessful.

    Then, Tsydenov was imprisoned multiple times but he is still remembered today by the people of Buryatia as a true Dharma King and a national hero. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this article. Ucheyma’s inspiring depiction as a self-decapitating goddess has inspired generations of practitioners since the introduction of tantric practice in ancient India.

    In fact, every deity represents an enlightened activity which primarily counters a particular delusion. It is true that the Ucheyma’s practice purifies the psychic poisons of ignorance, hatred and desire. This purification leads to the attainment of the three bodies of a Buddha – the truth body, the enjoyment body and the emanation body. Thank you.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago. Beautiful and rare thangkas which tells a thousand words depicting the founding fathers of the Sakya tradition which includes Dorje Shugden as a Protector. It has proven that many high lamas has been practicing Dorje Shugen’s practice centuries ago. Since Dorje Shugden practice arose, countless images of Dorje Shugden together with other Buddhas have been produced over the years.
    We are fortunate able to see all these rare thangkas and downloading for free.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us a brief life story of Lama Tsongkhapa in depicted in 15 beautiful and meaningful paintings. All these beautiful paints a thousands words. We are fortunate to practice the guru yoga of the great Lama Tsongkhapa, and receive his teachings through our Guru. Many famous gurus, lamas and teachers rely on Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings up to this day. His teachings is so powerful and is considered, by millions, to be a great sage of our times. Merely by seeing, reading and understanding the life of a Great Lama is a blessing as it helps us to have a better knowledge. It had a profound impact on the history of Asia and spread across the globe.
    May the pure teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa flourish continuously and spread in all directions.

    It is inspiring reading this article and how Johnny described Buddhism and how the teaching has helped him. Many of us always chase for the worldly things as this is what our expectation and perceptions are formed since young. Always thinking that money, status and good career are important in our live and something we can’t leave without. But Johnny summarise his understanding on the teaching very well and how Buddhism impact his mindset. We should be clear of our motivation. Our own fulfillment which is mainly self gratification is not real happiness. Happiness is when we bring happiness to others.

    Wow…. That’s great finally science has finally proves meridians do exist. I am doubtful about it until reading this article and google more of it, have opened my knowledge . The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine . It was at the Seoul National University, scientists has confirmed that the primo –vascular system is a crucial part of our cardiovascular system. Our meridians span throughout our body and thus are linked to every major part of it. When there is harmony and balance within our body we are healthy and if its disturbed and unbalance , then illness will arises. Interesting read and there’s plenty for me to understand . Modern science is finally working hand in hand with ancient knowledge with tradition way of treating illness. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 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
