LaughAwayYourEgo

Pastor David has been a student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche for over 15 years and within the ‘Tales With My Lama’ series of articles, he explores his spiritual relationship with Rinpoche, sharing anecdotes, stories, observations and little Dharma nuggets. It is all told to inspire others for their own spiritual relationship with their teachers.

 

Laugh Away Your Ego

If you have listened to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings or had the good fortune to meet him personally, you know that he has an irrepressible sense of humour. Rinpoche has a way of making people relax and have a really good laugh.

To do that, he uses his keen sense of observation and incredibly quick mind – nothing escapes his eyes. Some of the funniest moments are when Rinpoche mimics a student’s mannerisms or improvises scenarios that relate to the student’s expressions or reactions towards unpleasant situations or people. They are always spot on and pose a real danger of giving the audience belly-aching laughter.

My personal favourite is when Rinpoche starts a whole conversation in a foreign accent. Rinpoche is proficient in English, French and German as well as Southern American and African-American accents. Each accent comes complete with the appropriate slang, lingo and unique expressions to make it absolutely convincing. At times, Rinpoche makes up entire conversations between several characters, each with its own personality and accent. They are always brilliant, extremely funny and very entertaining.

Rinpoche’s teachings are often punctuated with bouts of laughter, which he sometimes uses deliberately to rouse the sleepy listener and to enrapture them to the message. This helps Rinpoche hold the attention of the audience for extended periods of time. In addition, laughter is a great way to release tension and stress over all manner of emotional issues and make everyone feel good about the teachings and the Dharma.

Naturally, humour is a way to open up the student, to relax them so they are not hung up with how our minds should be pliant and not hold on to conventions of what is appropriate or not appropriate. When Rinpoche teases someone, he encourages that person to laugh at themselves and not be self-conscious about being laughed at.

When we laugh at ourselves, we suffer less because we lower our undue expectations of people and situations. Rinpoche explains that when we are able to laugh at ourselves, we are able to let go of our ego a little. When the ego is reduced, we gain deep understanding and realizations of the Dharma.

This shows us that Rinpoche uses unconventional means to bring benefits to his students and friends. It is just another of the vast variety of methods that Rinpoche uses to develop his students and disciples to be great practitioners and ready for higher teachings and practices. Therefore, he or she is well on the way of practicing the teachings, benefiting others and living a meaningful life.

    Rinpoche’s style of teaching is unique and suitable for people at this time. People of the degenerate times are not like last time where they can sit for a prolonged period of time just listening to teachings. People of now will lose their patience and not able to keep their attention.

    Rinpoche always think about good way to spread the Dharma relentlessly. From telling jokes to learn about Malaysian’s culture, Rinpoche put his heart into giving teaching and hope that the audience will be able to receive the teachings and understand them.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for spreading the Dharma tirelessly and making sure the audience will get the maximum benefit out of it.

    Ego can cause many problems, it is an obstacle to our spiritual practice. In Buddhism, we want to practice the 8 verses of mind transformation. If we don’t put our ego down it is very hard to put these in practice. 1 of the 8 verses is to offer victory to others, it requires us to put down our ego.

    We don’t have to be egoistic, we are actually quite small if you look at how big the universe is. We may have seen and experienced many things but there are even more things that we have not seen and experienced before. Different people will have different perceptions of us. Their perception is based on their own experience with us, with life and their brought up as well. Therefore, as long as we know we are doing the right thing and conduct ourselves in the right way, we don’t have to argue or justify with others just to prove ourselves right. We can prove to them the real us through or action, which is more important.

    Rinpoche definitely has his skilful way to train people and to help people to transform their mind. Rinpoche will always break our wrong perception and wrong views so we can see thing clearer and apply what we have learned from the book or his teachings. This is certainly the advantage of having a teacher.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that laughter is a great way to release tension and stress over all manner of emotional issues and make everyone feel good. Actually, humor is a way to open up and to relax with everyone so they are not hung up with how our minds.

    When we laugh at ourselves, we suffer less because we lower our undue expectations of people and situations. This shows us that Rinpoche uses unconventional means to bring benefits to his students and friends. Thank you.

    This is one of my favourite video of Rinpoche’s teachings. Yes, 12 years ago, I have listened to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings and had the good fortune to meet him personally. It was Rinpoche’s sense of humour that attracted me to the Dharma. I have never seen a monk who can joke like this. The first impact that Rinpoche did to me was monk can talk like this, dress like this and joke like this. When I think deeper about all Rinpoche’s jokes, it was not jokes but Dharma teachings. Every single joke that Rinpoche says sounded funny but truth.

    Most of time when the Guru tells you directly about your flaw, you cannot take it due to your super huge ego. But if it’s a joke in a Dharma talk, not directed to anyone, you won’t feel offended at the same time you will some how have a deep impression about it and that makes you started to think and relate to it.

    Rinpoche is very skilful and compassionate to use many ways to teach and to make us think. How much you get really depend on how you listen and how you mind, perception, emotion and motivation.

  5. Pastor Chia on May 9, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    When we able to accept joke about ourselve, then we are letting our ego down one more step. If we keep doing that, at future nothing will bored you, your ego become less. Yes , i agree what Pastor David share about rinpoche joke. Rinpoche is very skillful way to make joke to in front of people let their ego down at the same time teaching dharma for particular student. In this way message easy send acoss without hurting people feeling.

  6. Pastor Henry Ooi on May 9, 2019 at 12:53 pm

    Laughter is the best medicine. For everyone, for every situation, even though it temporary eases and relieves tension that one feels. Rinpoche injects laughters through jokes during his dharma teachings and that keeps everyone awake after the sleepiness wears off. Also it is a great way to get the message across for some people who may find the words too strong and who perceive they were the target of the words.

    懂得嘲笑“自我”,接受“自我”,改进“自我”,是让自己活得比較自在的,情緒也是比較穩定的,生活品質也得到改善的。佛教中讲的“修行”,便是修正我们的自我, 仁波切说,当我们能够嘲笑自己时,我们能够放松一点自我。 当自我减少时,我们对佛法有了深刻的理解和认识, 所以懂得嘲笑自己,是一件好事。

    “When we laugh at ourselves, we suffer less because we lower our undue expectations of people and situations. Rinpoche explains that when we are able to laugh at ourselves, we are able to let go of our ego a little. When the ego is reduced, we gain deep understanding and realizations of the Dharma.”

    I felt the above is very powerful. It makes the teaching lively, funny and entertaining on the mundane level while on the other hand it has a much higher level of purpose and meaning. This manner of deep meaning purpose Dharma talk i feel is only prevalent from someone highly attained, an erudite master.

  9. Tek Lee on May 8, 2019 at 2:00 am

    Everybody has ego, just that we are not aware of that. I like Rinpoche’s way of teaching, by making joke of us, he actually reflects what we are in others’ eyes. It just depends on whether we can accept it or not. Although it is funny and everybody has a good laugh about it, but if it is about our ego, and when Rinpoche pointed at us, although it is a joke, we don’t only accept it, but better contemplate what is the joke on us about. Although sometimes the joke on us is not easy to accept, but the more Dharma we learn, the more we contemplate, ultimately we will get the meaning behind the jokes.

  10. Mingwen on May 8, 2019 at 1:53 am

    This teaching from Tsem Rinpoche is extremely easy to understand,logical, true, straightlforward & profound.

    Dharma is precious but the human beings make the treasures worth less than a penny. Extremely sad.. many times we thought we are practicing dharma but we are actually not & doing the opposite.

  11. Andrea Lai on May 8, 2019 at 1:27 am

    I like and agreed in one part of the video where Rinpoche explained of facing difficult situation where I believe, many of us hate that kind of feelings. Is true that, we have to be open up our heart, accept, listen, contemplation if we really want to improve ourselves. Freeing our hatred, anger, revenge is the best feeling of bliss.

  12. Vivian Ong on May 8, 2019 at 12:21 am

    We all have ego and we all make mistakes our entire lives. If we can just admit our mistakes or laugh at it, then probably it will lower down our ego. It may be a bit difficult at times to control but we if we do try to remind ourselves about it, then probably it will get much easier next time.

  13. Pammie Yap on May 7, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    I love the way Rinpoche give teachings. Always fun and at ease. Makes it easier to understand and absorb what He is trying to get across. Especially when the teachings get a bit ‘too long’, He will always joke and make us laugh so that we can stay ‘awake’ again and continue to learn. Laughing at ourselves may not be easy for many but when Rinpoche does it, it’s just different. He makes you understand that it’s ok to learn, accept, adept and change our ways to be better than what we are. Thank you Rinpoche for always finding ways to ‘suit’ our monkey minds with the precious Dharma.

  14. Datuk May on May 7, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    When we laugh when faced with our delinquencies and inadequacies, we must first check in on our motivation and intention. Are we laughing because we wish to avoid further attention to us and get upset later or are we laughing because we see how our conduct does not serve us and others.

    If the reason is the first, then we are definitely not seriously wanting to transform nor improve to serve us and others better. We will hold onto our grudges and becomes victim to our non virtues resulting in being bitter and angry and eventual depression.

    However, if we are able to laugh at ourselves seeing how our conduct and behaviour does not serve us to get rid of our anger, a result of our self cherishing ego, then we are on our way to improve.

    Dharma teaches us to accept things as they are and to view circumstances with kindness and compassion. If we are able to detach our emotions and our judgements on circumstance and practise kindness for the betterment of the situation, then we may be happy under most circumstances.

  15. Tsa Tsa Ong on May 7, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    It’s true indeed that most of Rinpoche’s video teachings are very funny and awakening. Rinpoche’s jokes are very entertaining and enlightening. Rinpoche is a very humorous Lama and his jokes always makes us laugh away with happiness! Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this lovely and short write up about Rinpoche’s skillful ways to make us laugh away our ego👏👍😘🙏🌈

  16. Samfoonheei on May 7, 2019 at 12:20 pm

    I have not meet Rinpoche personally, but listening from those teachings videos in the blog, one can definitely tells that Rinpoche has an unfading sense of humour. Laughter is the best medicines …there is a saying. Truly agree with that. Its has many health benefits too reducing tension and stress. Laughter, humour and joy are an important part of life, hence listening to Rinpoche’s teachings is joyful and great learning. Rinpoche uses alternative approach to bring benefits to everyone.
    Wow …laughing at ourselves, we suffer less because we lower our undue expectations of people and situations. It blows away our ego. A good teachings and learning something new.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this sharing.

  17. Jacinta on May 4, 2019 at 5:35 am

    Indeed true, Pastor David.
    That’s how I was hooked from one teaching to another in Rinpoche YouTube’s channel. Sometimes, I caught myself sitting and watching His teaching for hours. That way, students will learn more if they are engaged in the teachings as well.

    Rinpoche stampeded our EGO in this way so that we will not feeling uneasy being caught in that situation at that time but rather to laugh it off. However, I believe those who were being targeted will eventually learn more, especially the way we look at our own problems and emotions. Thank you Pastor

    Wonderful Laos

    Many visitors are attracted to its laid-back lifestyle, enchanting temples, mysterious plains, ethnic mountain villages and beautiful sunsets, especially by the scenery surrounding the Mekong, which explains why the word Lao means “please don’t rush”. If you’re looking for a place that has spirituality, somewhere that is a little different, a country that’s somewhat off the beaten track, Laos is a country that many will not regret visiting.

    Unlike most children his age, Luiz Antonio wants to eat his vegetables. It’s the other stuff that apparently gives him second thoughts.

    As evidence, YouTube user Flavia Cavalcanti has an adorable video, originally uploaded in Portuguese, of little Luiz struggling to comprehend the origins of his meal. Potato? Easy enough. Rice? Sure. Octopus gnocchi? Fat chance.

    In a recently uploaded version with English subtitles, Luiz dances around the subject a bit, asking simple questions trying to grasp how, exactly, the “legs” of an octopus ended up on his plate; more importantly, he wonders, what happened to the rest of the octopus?

    “Is his head still in the sea?” Luiz asks his mom, who responds, “It’s at the fish market.”

    “The man chopped it?” Luiz asks. His mom then informs him that all animals we eat, even chickens, are chopped up, prompting the sharp realization, “No! Those are animals!”

    “So… when we eat animals they die!” a wide-eyed Luiz acknowledges. “Why do they die? I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up… These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!”

    After that epiphany, Luiz realizes his mom has been touched by his compassion.

    “Why are you crying?” he asks.

    “I’m not crying,” his mother responds. “I’m just touched by you.”

    “I’m doing something beautiful?” Luiz wonders aloud, prompting his mom to direct him back to the plate, “Eat! No need to eat the octopus, all right?”

    Wow … the first title published by Kechara Comics in Nepali. That is wonderful now with this Nepali version comic more and more Nepalis people will get to read , understand about Dorje Shugden. Looking at those comic pictures tells us a thousand words even those who could not read it. It’s a good way sharing , as in Malaysia alone there are thousands of Nepalis foreign workers working here.

    Thank you for sharing this amazing and interesting video about oracles. A rare opportunity where we are given the chance to view those videos. Oracles acts as a medium through whom advice or prophecy was sought. In Tibet tradition oracles have played, and continue to play, an important part in religion, doctrine, and prophecy. Tibetans rely on oracles for various reasons such as healing of their diseases and on all important occasions. In Tibet, they have the Nechung Oracle and other oracles. The purpose of the oracles is not just to forecast the future but do assist in decision-making and providing intelligence on state matters. I have seen mediums taking trance and it is much different from Tibetans oracles from what I saw from these videos. Hopefully the Tibetan tradition oracles could be preserved , where more will benefit. One such famous oracle is the Panglung oracle where the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden took trance . In fact had helped HH Dalai Lama escaped from the Chinese invasion in Tibet to India back 1959. As advice by the oracle Chushi Gangdruk guerrilla group was formed and had escorted Dalai Lama safely into exile.

    Wow …wonderful Kechara Comic publication now came out with this important history in comic form of how HH Dalai Lama escaped from the Chinese invasion in 1959. The truth should be made known to all. Now coming up with this , more and more people get to know of the truth. It is our Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden that has saved Dalai Lama. Dorje Shugden who is a fully enlightened Buddha has helped millions and had benefited many which we all cannot denied. During the most difficult moments, Dorje Shugden will help us nor matter what race, religion one practice or pray to.
    Thank you Kechara Comics publication. Well done ….

    There are many types of people out there. But one thing is for sure, we are all not the same. We come from different backgrounds, upbringings and cultures. But it’s confirmed none of us would like pain, experience pain or even think of pain. Who in their right mind would enjoy pain? No one. Pain is something that brings tremendous displeasure especially when it’s physically. Imagine someone cutting you, burning you, decapitating you, skinning you or cooking you while you are still alive? Well this is what we do to others. Imagine their pain.

    There are cultures that due to ecological conditions they have to rely on meat. I don’t agree but I understand. But to kill an animal is very bad, but to do it slowly is really the ultimate in sadism and cruelty. And if it’s for fun or just our taste buds, it’s equally cruel. What type of cruel mind can slowly kill an animal for just the taste buds? I certainly can never do this.

    See this video. Share with others. I stress to share it with others. Don’t say it’s hard to watch. For every piece of meat we have eaten, we owe it to animals to see what they go through to fulfill our taste palates. We owe it to them and their pain.

    This is one of the most disturbing videos I have ever come across. I repeat humbly to share this with others to create awareness. Please social media this all over. Create awareness so this happens less and less. I thank you ahead of time.

    As the number of poached rhinos are breaking records in both South Africa and Kenya, please keep up your support of the men and women who are dedicating so much of their time, money and – in some cases – putting their very lives at risk for the survival of the African rhinos.

    South Africa has already lost more than 400 rhinos to poachers this year, including 265 in Kruger National Park. Many of the poachers are based across the border in Mozambique; to send a letter of protest to the Mozambique High Commission in South Africa, click on this link: http://e-activist.com/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=1736&ea.campaign.id=21066&ea.tracking.id=fb&en_chan=fb&en_ref=19085575.

    Kenya, too, is experiencing its worst rhino poaching year in decades, with many of its dedicated rhino sanctuaries being targeted. With a much smaller rhino population than South Africa, it is critical that the country’s remaining rhinos are cared for and protected – an expensive undertaking, but one our children and grandchildren will suffer for if we do not succeed.

    In this photograph, taken at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in December last year, a Samburu warrior expresses grief over the discovery of a poached black rhino. Owning a perfect track record until 2009, the conservancy has lost eleven rhinos to poachers since, despite spending millions of dollars on security every year. Now, more than ever, our support is needed.

    (CNN) — Packed tight into wire baskets — sometimes 20 or more to a cage — animal rights activists say as many as 200,000 live dogs every year are smuggled from northeast Thailand across the Mekong River destined for restaurants in Vietnam.

    Dehydrated, stressed, some even dying of suffocation on the trip, the dogs are often stacked 1,000 to a truck on a journey that lasts for days.

    “Obviously when you’ve got dogs stacked on top of each other they start biting each other because they are so uncomfortable, any kind of movement then the dog next to the one that’s being crushed is going to bite back,” said Tuan Bendixsen, director of Animals Asia Foundation Vietnam, a Hanoi-based animal welfare group.

    When they arrive in Vietnam, the suffering doesn’t end there. A common belief is that stress and fear releases hormones that improve the taste of the meat, so the dogs are placed in stress cages that restrict their movement.

    Eventually, the dogs are either bludgeoned to death or have their throats cut in front of other dogs who are awaiting the same fate. In some cases, they’ve been known to be skinned alive.

    The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.

    Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and virtually all red meat used in frozen prepared meals. They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite. This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body. And this leads to a sharp increase in cancer risk for those who eat them.

    The Greatest Escape in History!

    Located high in the Himalayas, surrounded by cloudy mountain peaks that rendered it inaccessible for centuries, Tibet is a land of magic and mystery filled with stories of lamas and yogis and their mystical feats. Out of all these stories, few have captured the hearts of people around the world more than the true story of how the charismatic spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama escaped the clutches of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and secretly travelled to India in 1959.

    Tsem Rinpoce never forgets the kindness people have given to him no matter big or small. Anila Thupten Chonyid was very kind to sponsor Tsem Rinpoche when he was in India. The little amount had made a big difference to Rinpoche.

    Without the sponsorship from Anila Thupten Chonyid, it would have been very hard for Rinpoche to continue his study in the monastery. Anila was very generous and her little act had brought so much benefit to so many people because she had enabled a great lama to spread Dharma.

    When we said money had to be well spent, I think money spent to support Dharma work is very well spent. When we give food, we help to solve the problem of the person for the day. When we give Dharma, it will help the person not only this life but in his/her future lives and the Dharma helps to release people from suffering.

    Life isn’t easy on the streets… You’re always hungry, your body is exposed to the harsh outdoor conditions, you’re embarrassed and people can easily take advantage of you.

    John Byrne is a 37 year-old man from Ireland. He has been homeless since age 14 and begs for change alongside his rabbit, Barney and dog, Roxy. Whatever he “earns”, he uses it to buy food for the 3 of them. How kind…

    At the end of last year, John was begging on Dublin’s O’Connell Bridge. An 18 year-old street bully came up to him and snatched Barney out of John’s arms and threw him over the bridge and into River Liffey. River Liffey runs through the center of Dublin and is ice cold during winter. John thought that Barney died due to the impact and water temperature, but when he looked over, he saw Barney swimming in circles. He immediately jumped over the bridge and swam to save his rabbit!

    There’s always a lot of news published about how people would torment animals, abuse them and even intentionally throwing them into the river like in John’s case…

    If we believe that animals were created by someone for men, it would follow that men were also created for animals since s…ome animals do eat human flesh.

    Animals are said to be conscious only of the present. They live with no concern for the past or future. Likewise, little children seem to have no notion of the future. They also live in the present until their faculties of memory and imagination are developed.

    Men possesses the faculty of reasoning. The gap between man and animal widens only to the extent that man develops his reasoning faculty and acts accordingly. Buddhists accept that animals not only possesses instinctive power but also, to a lesser degree, thinking power.

    In some respects, animals are superior to men. Dogs have a keener sense of hearing; insects have a keener sense of smell; hawks are speedier; eagles can see a greater distance. Undoubtedly, men are wiser; but men have so much to learn from the ants and bees. Much of the animal is still in us. But we also have much more: we have the potential of spiritual development.

    Buddhism cannot accept that animals were created by someone for men; if animals were created for men then it could follow that men were also created for animals since there are some animals which eat human flesh.

    Thousands of Californian hens have escaped being gassed after an anonymous donor provided $50,000 for some of them to be flown across the US on a charter flight to a happy retirement on the east coast.
    The hens, who have reached the end of their egg-laying life, were due to be killed – a common practice in the US.

    But after an approach from the Animal Place sanctuary in northern California, 3,000 of them will enjoy a comfortable retirement instead. Thanks to an unnamed benefactor, 1,150 of them will be flown to New York to be distributed to sanctuaries in the eastern US.

    Dorje Shugden Shize: A practice for healing and long life

    ‘Shize’ is the Tibetan word for ‘appearing in a peaceful form’. In this case, the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden has one face and two arms. His right hand holds a wealth arrow which is adorned with five-coloured silks and a divination mirror. The divination mirror demonstrates that this form of Dorje Shugden can help you to see into even the distant future; Shize’s practice is very effective in helping us to receive prophecies or develop clairvoyance.

    Read more on how Shize is able to help you: http://bit.ly/ShizeDS

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

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

    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

It’s a good opportunity to know so many social heroes in different fields. Everyone is playing their important part in making this world a better place. From environment to animal extinction to hunger problems. We would like to applaud all the Kechara heroes for playing their part exceptionally well. ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
