I have been a student of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for over 15 years. Through the years, I have witnessed Rinpoche’s compassion and the unconventional methods he uses to benefit others. Some of the short stories I share will tell interesting miraculous events that Rinpoche will not mention due to his humility. I hope these stories will serve as an inspiration in your own spiritual journey.

 

I Witnessed the Compassion of Tsem Rinpoche

It was the year 2001, if I recall correctly. I was going through a very difficult time in my life with regards to my career and I needed some answers. One day while I was at work, I was thinking to myself, “Who can I ask for advice? Who can I trust?”

At the time, I felt really jaded with the world. I had experienced so many deceptions in life so it was really hard to think of or find someone I can trust to give me some good advice. Suddenly, a thought came to me that I should contact Tsem Rinpoche. I barely knew Tsem Rinpoche then as I had only met him once during a dinner gathering with my sister a year earlier. Somehow, something told me that I could trust Rinpoche and that I should consult him. So, I texted my sister to ask for Rinpoche’s email and proceeded to write him a long email about my situation. I asked Rinpoche what I should do about my career and if I should leave my current job or stay on. To my surprise, Rinpoche emailed me back almost instantly with a simple instruction. I was to head down to his centre in Singapore to meet him and that I should ask my sister to drive my partner and I down as soon as possible.

Next thing I knew, we were trying to get into the very busy Jurong Reptile Park in Singapore. Pastor Chia greeted us at the entrance and showed us the way to the centre which turned out to be a small teaching hall located directly above a snake pit! Not knowing anything about Buddhism or Rinpoche’s background, I thought to myself that it was very odd to have a temple above a cave where snakes were exhibited. Now that I think of it, a temple above a snake pit actually has a lot of significant meaning. A snake pit can mean, “Any institution (such as a school, prison, hospital, etc.) run in an inept or inhumane way, or full of hostile or treacherous people.” https://en.wiktionary.org

Having a temple on top of snake pit could mean having the Buddhadharma as an antidote to counter our mental afflictions. And, Rinpoche and his centre were where the Buddhadharma was coming from and being disseminated to heal many beings.

When I entered the teaching hall, it felt like I was entering another realm where all the chaos from the outside just disappeared and there was only peace. Curiously, I began to check out the traditional Tibetan altars in the centre and it was the first time I gazed upon the beautiful twenty-one Taras and Lama Tsongkhapa. I also noticed a Tibetan throne in the prayer hall and thought that it must be for Rinpoche.

People started coming in and taking their seats as Rinpoche was about to arrive. When I first met Rinpoche back in 2000, Rinpoche was actually quite plump. Little did I know that Rinpoche had slimmed down so much that when he entered the prayer hall and sat on the throne, I had no idea it was him. I did not recognise Rinpoche and I even asked my sister, “Where is Rinpoche?”, she simply pointed at the throne.

Rinpoche started to give us a dharma teaching and I just remember feeling awed because he spoke in perfect English and Rinpoche’s presentation of the dharma was very relatable, funny and clear, I felt I could just sit there for hours listening to Rinpoche’s wisdom. Towards the end of the teaching, Rinpoche started picking people in the audience to ask some dharma questions. This was when I started feeling extremely nervous and was hoping Rinpoche will not pick me, but of course, the more you hide, the more you will be picked on, and obviously, Rinpoche picked me. Rinpoche asked, “What is the colour of Tara?” relief I thought to myself, “Thank goodness Rinpoche had given me a picture of Tara a year ago when I first met him!”

After the teaching, everyone approached the throne to get a blessing from Rinpoche, and this is when I witnessed something really extraordinary that I have never ever seen before.

A mother had brought her son for blessing. The boy looked like he was in his early twenties and his limbs were twisted. He had to be carried to Rinpoche’s throne. Then, I saw Rinpoche chant some mantras under his breath and began blowing all over the boy’s arms, head, and body. The boy seemed calmed by Rinpoche blowing mantras all over him. I have never seen anyone doing such a blessing before so I asked my sister, who proceeded to ask Pastor Chia, “What was wrong with the boy?”

Pastor Chia then explained to us that this mother and her son have been coming to see Rinpoche regularly to receive special blessings and healing because the boy is actually possessed by a spirit. It seems the spirit has been living inside this boy for years and was trying to take over his body, which would mean killing the boy. It became really bad when the possessed boy started cursing and hitting his own mother, eating bloodied raw chicken, and sleeping in the toilet. Apparently, the mother had gone to many different bomohs (Asian witch doctors) and spiritual masters of various religions, but none of them were able to help the boy and the spirit was getting stronger by the day. The spirit has even caused the boy’s limbs to become twisted, rendering him immobile.

Finally, she met Rinpoche who recognised that the boy was possessed by a very angry snake spirit who wanted to take over the boy’s body. Rinpoche gave the mother a special mantra to chant daily on behalf of her son since he could not chant. By then, he had lost all ability to speak. Rinpoche also asked the mother to bring the boy to see him on a regular basis to get blessings and healing. It seemed that after going to see Rinpoche a few times, along with the mother’s daily mantra recitation for her son, he began to improve. One of the clear signs of his improvement was that the boy stopped hitting his mother and eating raw meat. I was so shocked when I heard the story at that time as I had never seen anyone being possessed by a spirit. It was the first time I witnessed Rinpoche’s special ability to help people who were possessed and his great compassion.

Rinpoche was helping a mother and her son who were not Buddhists and, unlike many bomohs, Rinpoche did not charge them a cent. Seeing how Rinpoche compassionately helped the boy and his mother without any expectations, I realised that Rinpoche was a genuine spiritual teacher. This is how all true spiritual teachers should be; not bias, does not discriminate, no expectations of any reward, praise or ego trip. From that day onwards, I knew Rinpoche was a real spiritual teacher and a very special lama, a high lama as Tibetans would call it, and I knew that whatever Rinpoche does, it is 100% to help the person irrespective of race, colour or creed. It reaffirmed to me that I can definitely trust this lama.

After the healing session was done and Rinpoche had finished meeting everyone, Rinpoche took us out for supper and this was when I got to see the other funnier side of Rinpoche. At the end of my short trip, I had my questions answered. Literally, my whole life changed as I had to make a few tough decisions about my career and personal life. This trip marked the beginning of my spiritual journey.

A mini dharma “shopping” corner in Tsem Buddhist Centre. This clearly shows how Rinpoche has always wanted to make Buddha statues and dharma practice items available for practitioners, in order to enhance their spiritual practice.

A few years later, I heard from Pastor Chia that the mother had finished chanting the mantra and the boy was completely healed! The first thing he uttered was to ask his mother for some cooked food! After years of torment by a snake spirit who occupied his body, made him eat disgusting raw chicken and beat his mother, he was finally free. His mother cried tears of joy and embraced her son.

Meeting Rinpoche in Singapore really opened up my eyes and some karmic seeds in me. I came back to Malaysia feeling blessed and fortunate to have met someone who gave me some sense of direction when I was feeling lost. This trip became a turning point in my life where I started to tread on the Buddhist path and follow Rinpoche’s life-changing advice, and the rest as they say is history.

Thank you for reading my story. Humbly,
Joy Kam

    Thank you Joy Kam for your beautiful account and experience of meeting Rinpoche. Its nice and memory one witnessing all the wonderful qualities of a truly Guru’s compassion. Interesting to hear of the story of how the mother and her son who possessed by a spirit came to get the blessing of Rinpoche. Wow … after a few visit to see Rinpoche and following Rinpoche’s advice of reciting of mantras , her son got well.
    A happy ending after all and meeting Rinpoche had changed your life.
    Thank s again .

    It is very interesting to read about your experience with Rinpoche in helping the young man who was possessed by the angry snake spirit. It must have been quite an experience seeing someone possessed up close and how effective Rinpoche’s blessings were to calm him down immediately. I sincerely hope that Rinpoche will try to make more public appearance like he used to so that more people can receive bleesings from Rinpoche, as I have been personally asked many times from my facebook friends how they can meet Rinpoche? Thank you Joy and blog team for this wonderful and great sharing about Rinpoche. 🙏👍😘

    What a wonderful experience you had with our holy Guru His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and holding your steadfastness with Rinpoche will of course be a tremendous treasure in your life, after life, after life. Rinpoche is undoubtedly a real (true McCoy) spiritual practitioner with a heart full of compassion for there is no greater power that a human being can possess that can counteract an ‘invisible’ being than to have Bodhicitta.

    Dear Joy, that was an amazing sharing of your experience with Rinpoche in helping the young man who was possessed by the angry snake spirit. It must have been quite an experience seeing someone possessed up close and how effective Rinpoche’s blessings were to calm him down immediately. I am glad that the mother and son had the fortune to meet with Rinpoche otherwise things will get worst. This also shows how lucky we all are to have Rinpoche as our precious Guru and in our times with Rinpoche, so many stories of miracles had taken place directly with Rinpoche or by his blessings. May we always have the merits to have our Guru with us for a very long time and may all Rinpoche’s wishes be fulfilled to benefit so many that are in need of help. Thank you for sharing Joy.

    Dear Joy,

    Wonderful sharing of your spiritual journey, and also on the experience you had with Rinpoche. It is great to know that the boy had recovered from his possession. Rinpoche has always helped people without expectation, and nothing to receive in return.

    Hi Joy, Looking back at who you were and now that you’re on the way of becoming a sangha, living in Kechara Forest Retreat, helping others relentlessly……
    These before-and-after transformation speak volumes about you yourself and indirectly reflects on Rinpoche’s compassion, mission and ultimate vision as well. Looking at where Kechara is now, I can safely deduce that Rinpoche has only Dharma in His mind. Just look at the group of Pastors and Sangha-to-be, to me, that’s the indication of the growth of Dharma. What else can it be?

    Thanks Joy for the story of Rinpoche about the snake possessing the boy. It reminds of another story of a monk being possessed by a snake spirit in Thailand. http://www.kechara.com/news/amazing-miracles/lord-setrap-dispels-evil-snake-spirit/

    I look forward for more stories from you and also Pastor Chia as well. Both of you are most seniors and definitely there’s more to share. Thank you so much as you have taken your time out to write this story as well as keeping up daily commitments, practices and works in KFR. Ultimately thanks to Rinpoche that we crossed paths and I get to enjoy more stories.

    Prevent Snakes in Your Backyard

    Artemisia Vulgaris (mugwort or common wormwood) is one of several species in the genus Artemisia which have common names that include the word mugwort. This species is also occasionally known as Felon Herb, Chrysanthemum Weed, Wild Wormwood, Old uncle Henry, Sailor’s Tobacco, Naughty Man, Old Man or St. John’s Plant (not St John’s wort).

    In some places, wormwood is considered as an invasive weed. It is a very common plant growing on nitrogenous soils such as waste places and roadsides. It is a tall herbaceous perennial plant with a woody root.

    The downside of this plant is that it is an aggressive and invasive plant that takes over wherever it is planted which leads to another issue of management control.

    Not using some muscles for quite a time it’s known that they will weaken.

    A perfect example is a leg injury like a broken bone (fibula) and you’re supposed to relax and use the wheelchair for some time in order to let the bone heal. In the meantime, your muscles won’t be active and thus become weaker. This is the same with the muscles surrounding your eye lens.

    If it happens that you are wearing glasses as many do and you don’t practice exercises for your eyes, your vision will slowly weaken. Your eye muscles need practice just like every other muscle in your body.

    A US court has upheld a law forcing Phoenix pet stores to only sell rescue animals, giving homeless cats and dogs a better chance at a second life.

    Stores in Phoenix now cannot source animals to sell from commercial breeders.

    The decision, which was passed by Phoenix City Council in December 2013 to tackle the rising amount of homeless animals in the area, has since been upheld in the courts to the delight of animal welfare activists.

    The Humane Society of the United States senior vice president Jonathan Lovvorn has welcomed the decision by Arizona’s largest city and state capital.

    The hardest thing about being Buddhist is we have to do things differently from the norm. Like what this person says in the video, usually when people say or do bad things about us, we will react immediately to prove them right. But as a Buddhist, we should not react to encourage more conflicts. We have to give the victory to others.

    The secular environment we are is not a conducive environment for us to do our spiritual practice. It is very easy for us to slip away from our spiritual practice with all the temptation. We have to have a very strong mind to keep up with our practice.

    Tsem Rinpoche has always been fascinating about Bigfoot, UFO, Loch Ness, Findhorn, Bermuda Triangle and strange phenomena happening around the world. Its wonderful to have Bigfoot figurine as a gift for Rinpoche from Pastor Seng Piow. Wow fantastic been made in Malaysia at KECHARA SARASWATI ARTS DEPT. So Kechara team are doing well ,been talented has come out with this Bigoot figurine. Definitely looks real based on the famous footage by Patterson. Great effort and time must had put to produce it. The real footage where Bigfoot was caught on camera has since proven that Bigfoot do exist after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Martin for sharing this wonderful post. I would not be who I am today without Rinpoche’s teachings. I thank Rinpoche every day for giving me such a strong spiritual blessing in my life. He was very sympathetic and cordial to even an unknown person. He was truly a living Buddha who has a thousand arms. He has a strict and humor method to teach us and we won’t feel been left out. I do enjoyed his Dharma teachings in You tubes and reading Rinpoche’s blog. Rinpoche is truly a spiritual legacy infused with his divine power and blessings.

    Loyalty is the ability to put others before ourselves and stick with them in good times and bad or difficult times. Show loyalty to friends, family, teachers and significant others by being honest, trustworthy, supportive, and generous. Maintain healthy boundaries with those around us so we can be loyal to them in a productive way. The spiritual life of the teacher has an impact on us as a student. We cannot expect someone who lies to us to be loyal to us. Honesty is what creates loyalty. Loyalty needs to be handled with honesty and if we cannot be honest then we do not deserve loyalty.
    Thank you for this wonderful sharing as a reminder for us all .

    In the Japan earthquake and tsunami, reporters found two dogs and filmed this two dogs. One injured, and another who steadfastly refuses to leave his buddy’s side. Friendship and loyalty when times are rough. It speaks volumes about the strength of character of our dogs. It’s sad, yet touching. And ultimately inspiring!. Japanese dog refuses to leave injured friend behind at the time his friend needs him most. That’s truly ROYALTY a strong bond between them, they remained royal to each other. Well I think animals are better off than a lot of humans when comes to love, loyalty and gratitude.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing. To be ROYAL to all we met nor matter what happens.Being royal to our family, friends and teachers is the greatest virtue we can have.

    Thank you Martin for sharing this beautiful article. Indeed our Guru care so much for all beings and in order to bring us to the right path, Rinpoche use all sorts of method to suit our stubborn mind. Rinpoche is so skillful in tackling our mind and because of his compassion and kindness that we are able to learn and practise dharma from him. We should not take Rinpoche’s teaching for granted but to continue practicing and transforming our mind to be better.

    Apart from our body, there are many things that we don’t own. The money, house, cars and things that we think we own them, we actually don’t. This is because when we die, we cannot take them with us.

    The only thing we take with us is our karma. Whatever action or thoughts we have, they become our karma. Having a good motivation will make our thoughts or actions become positive karma or merit. These are the most important things that will determine whether we will end up in a good or bad place.

    “… Madame Blavatsky … stands out as the fountainhead of modern occult thought, and was either the originator and/or populariser of many of the ideas and terms which have a century later been assembled within the New Age Movement. The Theosophical Society, which she co-founded, has been the major advocate of occult philosophy in the West and the single most important avenue of Eastern teaching to the West.”

    J. Gordon Melton, Jerome Clark and Aidan A. Kelly, editors, New Age Almanac, Detroit, Michigan, Gale Research Inc., 1991, p. 16.

    It was not long ago that Tibetans like Zhaxipingcuo and Justin Qiangbarenzeng would neither have the opportunity nor choice to fulfil their dreams as they have today. Tibet was a desolated, isolated and poor but an “independent” state where life expectancy was 36 years and the literacy rate was 5%. The vast majority of the population, around 95%, were born into hereditary indentured labour with little to no hope of upward social mobility. Lamas and noblemen enriched themselves on the backs of poor peasants and needless to say, corruption and crime were endemic. It was a place where bandits roamed the countryside and where very basic items such as salt, tea, barley, cloth and yak butter were used as a means of exchange. Up until even the 1960s most Tibetans did not have matches, gunpowder or wheels.

    Today, life is very different, “a giant leap for mankind” to borrow the words of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Tibetans have much more freedom to develop their abilities and opportunity to use them to their fullest. For example, Jampa Ringzin who certainly has the talent for sports, has had the opportunity to develop his baseball skills and as importantly, has been able to access the job he has now been recruited into, at a world class level. Under the old structure in Tibet, he would not have these similar opportunities or choice. This is really human development.

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

    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
