Shirdi001

Sai Baba of Shirdi is believed to have been born between 1838 and 1842. This Indian saint is known to have practised both Hinduism and Islam, but he made his mark by refusing to be identified with any particular religion.

Shirdi Sai Baba dedicated his life to ascetic practice and to spreading the message of love, religious tolerance, and harmony. He did not hesitate to use his miraculous powers to benefit beings. His life was a perfect embodiment of his teachings, and his actions inspired faith among his devotees.

Today, Shirdi Sai Baba’s images have become the object of worship for millions of devotees around the world. His wisdom teachings continue to inspire many onto the path of spirituality.

 

Early Life

Not much is known about Shirdi Sai Baba’s birth, parentage, or childhood. He is said to have given contradictory and vague responses on these matters and regarded his early life as unimportant. Historical and genealogical research in Shirdi, a town in the state of Maharashtra in western India, indicated that he was born not far from the village and was given the name Haribhau Bhusari at birth.

Shirdi Sai Baba himself mentioned to Mhalsapati Nagre, one of his close disciples, that he was born in Pathri Village to a Hindu Brahmin (priestly caste) family. Not long after his birth, his parents entrusted him to the care of a fakir (Sufi Muslim) couple and he spent his childhood in a mosque. On another occasion, he mentioned that his foster mother entrusted him to the care of Venkusa of Selu, a Hindu teacher. He studied under the guidance of Venkusa for 12 years.

When he was 16 years old, Sai Baba went to Shirdi Village. Again, there is no exact information about the date of his arrival. However, most biographers agree that he stayed in Shirdi for three years before leaving and returning one year later in 1858 as a 20-year-old. Based on this information, it is widely believed that Shirdi Sai Baba’s year of birth was 1838.

During his first stay in Shirdi, he adopted an ascetic lifestyle and engaged in prayer and meditation under a neem tree in the Babul forest. His austere lifestyle drew various reactions from the villagers. The children often mocked and threw stones at him while those who sought out spirituality, such as Appa Jogle, Mhalsapati, and Kashinatha, visited and treated him with reverence. They also supplied him with food and other basic necessities.

After three years in Shirdi, Sai Baba left. No one knows for sure what happened to him during this period of absence. It is said that he worked as a weaver and met many fakirs and saints. He himself claimed that, during his absence from Shirdi in 1857, he fought in the Indian Rebellion with the army of Rani Lakshmibai.

 

Return to Shirdi

Shirdi Sai Baba returned to Shirdi in 1858 with Chand Patil’s wedding procession. He went to Khandoba Mandir, a Hindu temple in Shirdi, and met Mhalsapati, a temple priest who would later become one of his closest disciples. Mhalsapati greeted him with the words “Aao, Sai!” or “Come, Sai!” “Sai” is a title that is usually given to a saint of the Sufi faith. From then on, he was known by the name of Sai Baba.

Shirdi Sai Baba had long hair that flowed down to his hips. After his defeat in a wrestling match by Mohdin Tamboli, he adopted the Sufi style of clothing and began wearing a cloth cap and a knee-length kafni.

He resumed his ascetic lifestyle in the nearby forest where he meditated under a neem tree and wandered through the woods. After about five years, he took up residence at a local mosque which he named “Dwarkamai” after Dwarka, the abode of Lord Krishna. When he first moved in, the mosque was in a state of disrepair.

Despite his new dwelling place, Shirdi Sai Baba still went out every morning to beg for alms. He also received pilgrims of the Islamic and Hindu faiths who came to seek his advice. Dwarkamai was open to all visitors regardless of their background, faith, and caste.

In Dwarkamai, Shirdi Sai Baba maintained a dhuni (a sacred fire). Udi, the ashes from the sacred fire, are said to have had the power of healing and the ability to avert evil influence. He used these sacred ashes to treat the sick and also gave them freely to whomever visited him. He also asked for donations from his visitors to distribute to the poor and other devotees, to help improve the karma of his disciples, and to teach them to let go of their attachments and greed.

Shirdi Sai Baba also encouraged his disciples to do charity and share their possessions with others.

“Unless there is some relationship or connection, nobody goes anywhere. If any men or creatures come to you, do not discourteously drive them away, but receive them well and treat them with due respect. Shri Hari (God) will be certainly pleased if you give water to the thirsty, bread to the hungry, clothes to the naked and your verandah to strangers for sitting and resting. If anybody wants any money from you and you are not inclined to give, do not give, but do not bark at him like a dog.”

Shirdi Sai Baba grew and nurtured the garden he called Lendi Baug, named after a river that used to flow in that area. He would go to Lendi Baug every morning and rest under a neem tree. Under the neem tree, he dug a two-feet-deep pit and kept an earthen fire lit continuously.

Inside this garden, Shirdi Sai Baba and his disciples also dug a well (Lendi). Every day, he threw silver coins into the well; he liked to test his disciples to see if they were greedy for money and gold.

Shirdi Sai Baba’s Teachings

Shirdi Sai Baba was familiar with both the Muslim and Hindu scriptures and advised his devotees to read them both. He was able to interpret and explain the texts of both faiths. He taught about the omnipresence of God and advised his disciples, “Why do you fear when I am always here. He has no beginning and no end.”

He also emphasised the “Oneness of God” – a concept that is common to both the Hindu doctrine of Advaita Vedanta and the Islamic Tauhid (Oneness of God).

Shirdi Sai Baba did not leave any notes or records of his teachings. However, he left behind many oral teachings and parables. He emphasised the importance of devotion and faith to one’s teacher and how the law of karma determines one’s faith. He also liked to dance with other fakirs and sing the songs of Kabir, a tradition that was prevalent in the Sufi faith.

Throughout his life, it was apparent that Shirdi Sai Baba did not care about his reputation and fame, and he had developed compassion for those who sought him out for help, teachings, and advice. He also did not hesitate to show wrath to his disciples to shake their sense of ego.

While the number of his followers and disciples grew, he continued to live simply and became the embodiment of selflessness and compassion. He worked for the liberation of human beings and always encouraged his followers to practise humility. On one occasion, he advised them, “Even the learned are confused. Then what of us? Listen and be silent.” Due to his many selfless qualities, he was revered and admired by a great many people.

Sai Baba made eleven assurances to his devotees:

  1. Whosoever puts their feet on Shirdi soil, their sufferings will come to an end.
  2. The wretched and miserable will rise to joy and happiness as soon as they climb the steps of the mosque.
  3. I shall be ever active and vigorous even after leaving this earthly body.
  4. My tomb shall bless and speak to the needs of my devotees.
  5. I shall be active and vigorous even from my tomb.
  6. My mortal remains will speak from my tomb.
  7. I am ever living to help and guide all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me.
  8. If you look to me, I look to you.
  9. If you cast your burden on me, I shall surely bear it.
  10. If you seek my advice and help, it shall be given to you at once.
  11. There shall be no want in the house of my devotee.

Save for a few exceptions, Shirdi Sai Baba did not like to perform regular rituals. He did encourage the chanting of the Al-Fatiha and the reading of the Quran during Muslim festivals. He also listened to qawwali and moulu, accompanied by the sarangi and the tabla, twice daily.

According to the stories of his life, Shirdi Sai Baba always advised his disciples and devotees to practise generosity, forgiveness, inner peace, contentment, and love towards others. He detested attachment to earthly possessions. He also encouraged his followers to undergo spiritual training and to surrender to their teacher who had “trod the path to divine consciousness,” and “will lead the disciple through the jungle of spiritual training.” [Source: wikipedia.org]

Shirdi Sai Baba’s other favourite quote was, “Allah rakhega vaiia rahena” or “Let us be content with what we have, and submit our will to Allah.” [Source: wikipedia.org] This verse was meant to encourage his disciples to practise contentment.

Inter-Faith Tolerance and Harmony

Shirdi Sai Baba taught his disciples to practise tolerance and not discriminate against others based on their background, caste, or religion. He said that all faiths led to the same goals and that “God is the Owner of us All.” [Source: biographyonline.net] With his words and teachings, Shirdi Sai Baba encouraged harmony and unity among all religions, especially between the Hindu and Muslim faiths.

He also refused to be identified either as a Muslim or a Hindu. When asked, he often became irritated and on at least one occasion, he is known to have given the following response:

“You have been with me for eighteen years now. Does Sai mean for you only these three and a half cubits of height?”

Source: wikipedia.org

Due to his position and non-discriminatory stand, Shirdi Sai Baba was able to skillfully avoid entanglement in inter-faith clashes and make a substantial contribution towards general harmony. His position on religious tolerance is perfectly represented in the following verse that his devotees sing:

“In essence or basic principle, there is no difference whatever between Hindu and Muslim. You took birth in human body to point out this. You look with affection on both Hindus and Muslims. This, Sai, who pervades all, as the soul of all, shows.”

Source: wikipedia.org

Many visitors to Dwarkamai bore witness to the effects of Shirdi Sai Baba’s teachings. They were pleasantly surprised at how Muslims, Hindus, and followers of other faiths could live together in harmony and peace. This obvious display of religious tolerance in action served as a powerful lesson that inter-faith harmony is indeed possible. Due to Shirdi Sai Baba’s and his disciples’ display of religious harmony, Christians and Parsis also came to Shirdi to experience his wisdom.

The Miracles of Shirdi Sai Baba

Shirdi Sai Baba is known to have performed miracles during his lifetime.

Shirdi Sai Baba was famous for his miracles. There are many tales of him displaying miraculous powers either to inspire faith or to help others, such as levitating, lighting lamps with water, healing the chronically ill, giving advice to his followers in their dreams, and removing and reattaching his limbs (Khandana Yoga). He often said that, “My Leela [miracle] is inscrutable.” [Source: shirdi.org.uk]

The following are selected accounts of Shirdi Sai Baba’s miracles:

 

Lighting Oil Lamps with Water

The lighting of oil lamps with water was one of the first miracles that Shirdi Sai Baba performed, which was made known to many people. He used to light oil lamps in the mosque where he lived and at other temples. The local merchants donated the oil that he used to light the lamps.

One day, the merchants decided that they would not give any more oil to Shirdi Sai Baba, telling him that they had no fresh stock. Shirdi Sai Baba did not say anything and returned to his mosque. That night, he lit the lamps using water instead of oil and the lights burnt deep into the night.

When they heard about the miracle, the merchants rushed to Shirdi Sai Baba with regret and apologies. Shirdi Sai Baba forgave them and advised them not to lie again. He said, “You could have refused to give me the oil, but did you have to say that you didn’t have fresh stocks?” [Source: shirdi.org.uk]

 

Fire in the Field

On one sweltering summer day, during the harvest season, Shirdi Sai Baba told one of his disciples, Kondaji Sutar, that his field was on fire. Sutar immediately rushed to his field but saw no fire there. When he informed his teacher about what he saw, Shirdi Sai Baba told him to return to his field and to look again carefully.

Sutar returned to his field and did what his teacher told him to do. Then, Sutar noticed that part of his corn was on fire. Smoke started to appear. The strong winds made it difficult to put the fire out. Sutar became very worried and anxiously appealed to Shirdi Sai Baba for help. Shirdi Sai Baba went to the field and sprinkled water on the fire. The fire was immediately extinguished.

Terminating the Rain

One day, a devotee named Rao Bahadur Moreshwar Pradhan and his wife visited Shirdi Sai Baba to behold the holy person (darshan). Just as the couple were about to leave, rain started to pour down heavily. Shirdi Sai Baba asked God to stop the rain. The rain immediately stopped, and the couple were able to leave and safely reach their destination.

Increasing the Water Level in a Well

In Shirdi, there was a well with no water because there was no natural spring nearby. The villagers had to walk a long distance to fetch water, which created difficulties for them.

On Ramnavami, the celebration of the god Rama’s birthday, the villagers experienced a water crisis. In an effort to help the villagers, Shirdi Sai Baba threw some leaves into the well, and the water level started to increase. Since then, the well has become a functioning source of water that fulfilled the basic needs of the villagers.

 

Saving a Girl from Drowning

There was a man named Babu Kirwandikar whose three-year-old daughter fell into a well. The villagers immediately rushed to the well to save the girl. To their astonishment, they saw the girl floating in the air as if invisible hands were holding her up. This miracle was attributed to Shirdi Sai Baba.

The Flow of the Godhavari River from Shirdi Sai Baba’s Feet

One day, Das Ganu, one of Shirdi Sai Baba’s disciples, requested his teacher’s permission to go to the Godhavari River to bathe in the holy water. Shirdi Sai Baba told Das Ganu that he did not need to go to Godhavari because the river was under his feet.

Das Ganu approached and held Shirdi Sai Baba’s feet with the hollow of his palm. Water then flowed and filled up the hollow of Das Ganu’s palm. With a deep sense of joy and devotion, Das Ganu immediately sprinkled the water on his head and his body, and shared it with the other devotees present.

The Birth of the Sai Baba Movement

At first, Shirdi Sai Baba discouraged any worship of his being. However, the stories of his wisdom, compassion, and miracles reached far and wide, and people came flocking to him. The Hindu priest, Mhalsapati, is regarded as his first disciple.

In the 19th Century, Shirdi Sai Baba’s devotees comprised of only a small group of disciples. However, by 1910, he had become a well-known figure in Mumbai and his devotees grew exponentially, especially among those from the Muslim and Hindu faiths. They regarded him as a saint. In February 1910, his devotees began the practise of Sai Baba night worship (shej arati). Their numbers continued to grow as Das Ganu worked tirelessly to spread his teacher’s name throughout India.

Shirdi022

In 1911, Shirdi Sai Baba’s devotees completed the construction of Dikshitwada, a rest-house for devotees in Shirdi. His temple in Kudal, Sindhudurg, was established in 1922. According to legend, Shirdi Sai Baba gave Dada Madye Ji, one of his disciples, one rupee to build this temple. In the later part of Shirdi Sai Baba’s life, people of the Zoroastrian and Christian faiths started to join the Sai Baba movement.

His devotees also established a religious organisation named Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust in Shirdi. Today, approximately 20,000 pilgrims visit his temple in Shirdi on an average day. The number of visitors can reach up to 100,000 a day during religious festivals.

According to the Gale Encyclopedia of Religion, “there is at least one Sai Baba mandir [or temple] in nearly every Indian city.” [Source: newworldencyclopedia.org] The worship of Shirdi Sai Baba has also reached other countries including the United States, Malaysia, France, Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom and Singapore.

Later Life and Death

On 15th October 1918, Sai Baba entered mahasamadhi, where his consciousness departed his earthly form, while lying on his disciple’s lap in Dwarkamai. Before he passed away, he is known to have said the following to his disciples:

“Do not think I am dead and gone. You will hear me from my Samadhi and I shall guide you.”

Carved by the famous sculptor Balaji Vasant Talim, this image of Shirdi Sai Baba is adorned with a gold crown and a garland of flowers. The interior and exterior of the temple are gilded with gold.

Legacy

Shirdi035

Today, Shirdi Sai Baba is still considered one of the most popular spiritual figures in India. His images are worshipped both in India and across the world by both Sufi and Hindu religious leaders.

    Sai Baba of Shirdi was an Indian spiritual master who is regarded by his devotees as a saint and a fakir. He is revered by both his Hindu and Muslim devotees during, as well as after his lifetime. He preached the importance of realization of the self and criticized love towards perishable things. His teachings concentrate on a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace and devotion to the God and guru.

    Sai Baba encouraged his devotees to pray, chant God’s name, and read holy scriptures. He told Muslims to study the Qur’an and Hindus to study texts such as the Ramayana, Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Vasistha.

    Sai Baba was completely opponent to orthodoxy, Hinduism, Christianity and muslim. He asked his followers to chant holy words ,god’s name and asked his devotees to read their respective holy books. He followed all hindu rituals and permitted muslims to follow Namaz, reading of Quran at festival times.He advised his devotees and followers to lead a moral life, help others, love every living being without any discrimination, and develop two important features of character: faith and patience. He criticised atheism.

    Sai baba of shirdi reported many miracles. He performed many miracles such as levitation, bilocation, materialization, reading of peoples mind, entering tomb at his own will,removal of body parts and affixing them again including intestines. Took rebirth after 3 days, cured the ill, and saved the people by stopping the falling mosque.

    Thank you for sharing the inspiring story of the great master.

    It is quite a rare thing that someone can be equally famous amongst the Hindus and Muslims. In India which has big population of Hindus and Moslems, it is essential there are people who can bring or link these two communities together.

  4. Datuk May on Aug 25, 2018 at 2:55 pm

    “IT IS THE SINGER NOT THE SONG” is how I would adeptly term the doctrine which was universally taught by this great and wise Indian Saint. Schooled both in the Sufi Islam tradition and Hinduism, Shirdi Sai Baba taught about generosity, forgiveness, inner peace, contentment and love towards others. The best elements in any religions.

    Shirdi Sai Baba also taught and encouraged harmony and unity among all religions. As such many other religious traditions were also his followers and supported his great work of peace and love in the world.

    In Malaysia, there is also the Sai Baba movement, but to read of the origins of this tradition is an eye-opener how religions respected and well practised can create world peace as always also taught by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche.

    Am truly inspired by Shirdi Sai Baba compassionate dharma nature that teaches generosity, forgiveness, inner peace, contentment, and love towards others. Really a wise indian siant.

    Powerful Renunciate, Great Teacher Bent On Ego-Cutting
    Shirdi Sai Baba did not care about his reputation and fame, and he had developed compassion for those who sought him out for help, teachings, and advice. He also did not hesitate to show wrath to his disciples to shake their sense of ego.

  9. Lum Kok Luen on Jul 27, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful narration of Shirdi Sai Baba and his compassion in imparting the right way of life to everyone. His ability and teaching not to discriminate a person based on his / her religious preference probably sparked off the call for mutual respect and tolerance of one another in India.

    I had the personal experience to meeting Shirdi Sai Baba’s next incarnation – i.e., Satya Sai Baba when I was 14 / 15 years old in India. My parents and I travelled to Bangalore, India to a little village called Puttaparthi (about 4 to 5 hours by bus from Bangalore) back in the late 70’s early 80’s.

    There was a sizeable followers of Satya Sai Baba in Malaysia back then. Most of the followers consulted Sai Baba because it was believed that he can cure illnesses/ afflictions just through his blessings, looking at the person or by consuming the “bibuthi” or holy ash that he just produce through a few waves on his hands.

    The reason we went to India is to seek a “cure” to correct my physical condition at that time (I was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis) and we wanted to try our “luck” through this supposed faith healer. Somehow, we connected to the Sai Baba followers group in KL and this KL center family organized a special group to seek an audience with Sai Baba. The only caution issued to us before we departed was that Sai Baba may not see us and we could end up coming back to KL “empty handed”.

    We took our chances and off we went for 2 weeks. The day we entered the village (Puttaparthi), we checked into our hostel and we had to be segregated according to gender. So we ended with my dad, myself and another 2 guys (father and his paralysed son) into a hostel room.

    The environment within the entire ashram (or temple) is very serene. The ashram have all the facilities for a big community living – from houses to a full hospital. Everything that one need to survive is available. On a typical day, all devotees or followers will need to participate in the many religious ceremonies. The main ceremony is what they call the “bhajan” or puja which happens twice daily – early morning at about 500am and the other one is in the evening about 7pm. Each session lasts about 2 hours. The prayers are all in the Indian language (couldn’t recall whether it was Hindi or Tamil).

    Normally, all of us (locals and foreigners) would gather within the large compound of Sai Baba’s residence after the bhajan and await for Sai Baba to appear. He would normally walk around all the devotees/ followers and will indicate to his assistants on whom he would grant an audience with. We were “lucky” to have the audience about the 3rd or 4th day after we arrived in Puttaparthi.

    Once we were inside the audience room, we were made to wait and each of us who have medical problems would have a personal audience with Sai Baba inside his private room. When my turn came, Sai Baba knew my problem without me mentioning anything. He performed his hand waving ritual and out came the “hold ashes” which they called as vibuthi and I was told to consume it and spread the powder on my back. And that’s it. I was then ushered out and y personal audience with Sai Baba was like perhaps 3 to 5 minutes. Then the rest of the Malaysian entourage had their audience with him.

    Was I impressed by him? Honestly, no – because he struck to me as just an ordinary being (except for his “explosive” and curly hair style). Does he have an aura? Probably because he has the height. And the most critical point is – was I cured of my scoliosis condition? Definitely not. Maybe because at my age, I was naïve enough to think that my spine will be miraculously and instantly straightened just by his consultation and faith healing. Anyway, prior to my arrival to India, I did not have high hopes and therefore, my expectations were managed.

    Finally, we came back to Malaysia and my orthopedic surgeon performed the corrective surgery a few years later.

    The main thing that I wanted to share is this – Satya Sai Baba have a huge following in India and all over the world. Even in Malaysia, there were many followers who are of different faiths – Christians, Buddhists, Taoists and even atheists.

    However, when one is in the ashram, we can truly see that Sai Baba embraces people of all faiths. There are many structures within the compounds that have inscriptions of Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, etc. There is a deep sense of peace, tranquility and real community living in harmony and peace with the compounds.

    The next question that popped in my mind is – is this Satya Sai Baba the incarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba? Everybody claims that he is. So – I just believed it to be.

    I though I just share my personal experience with the later “reincarnation” of Shirdi Sai Baba.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    Buddhism started as a Hindu influenced religion in India. Buddhism has had a long history in China and has been instrumental in shaping Chinese culture and tradition. Over time Buddhism became a popular force in the lives of the Chinese and many others. Buddhists believe in a combination of Taoism and Mahayana Buddhism, the latter of which teaches that enlightenment can be achieved in a single lifetime. It was able to gain acceptance among the Chinese as it emphasis on non-violence and the sanctity of animal life. China hosts the world’s largest Buddhist population. Interesting read . At the time of commenting , I still have plenty to understand.

    nspiring story of Kyabje H E Tsem Rinpoche’s life story. Despite all the up and down to earth difficulties, Rinpoche had gone through, it did not deter Rinpoche to give up what Rinpoche want to be a monk for the benefit of others. We are fortunate and blessed to have Rinpoche here in Malaysia and having the opportunity to learn, practice Dharma . It has since change the lives of many of us. Rinpoche is a gift to the world , who solely just on giving to benefit others and inspiration to many.
    Rinpoche ‘s biography tells us all, reading it will let us all know and understand better of a truly great lama. Glad that Tsem Rinpoche had taken Kyabje H E Gangchen Rinpoche’s advice to write his biography to benefit all.
    Thank you Rinpoche, writers team and the bio-team for the Biography book for Tsem Rinpoche – “The Promise”. A beautiful book to have . I am fortunate to receive a copy from Rinpoche as a gift which I truly treasure, reading it over and over again.

    Julian Beever is an English chalk artist, who is one of the most famous 3D street artists. He is also known as the “Pavement Picasso” for his enormous 3D pavement sketchings that bring his art well and truly to the streets. He mostly receives a positive reaction and people enjoy seeing his art. Amazingly he has produced hundreds of pieces of ‘pavement art’ at venues all over Europe. Looking at those pictures in this post tell us a thousand words. It is indeed beautiful and realistic.

    Reading this article it gave a clear pictures of how many animals been slaughtered for human’s menu. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our environment. When we become more mindful of what we have on our menu every day, that mindfulness will seep into everything we do. Many people choose a vegetarian diet out of concern, to stay healthy, saving animals and environment as well.
    What is important , give the animals a chance, respect them and to do harm them. May more people realized how many thousands or millions of animals be saved if they go on being a vegetarian.

    Our Lama Tsem Rinpoche was a gift to us and the Tibetan Buddhism world who just keeps on giving , teaching Dharma and cares more than himself. Rinpoche was definitely one Lama that gives much more than another one else. Well known for his compassion, Rinpoche had guild rather train his students from day one where they are today. Rinpoche had observed , on the lookout to assist and encourage anyone of us and friends. Rinpoche had used the ‘new news’ an exercise to develop greater awareness of people and situations around. Wonderful way , to instill the positive qualities of compassion and awareness in us. Reading this post , I learn something new.

    Having a Dorje Shugden shop at Petaling street, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia will definitely benefits more and more local people as well as foreigners especially the tourist from across the globe. Many people will get to know and understand the Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden of our time. Many people who see the protector or passing by will be blessed as it is located at the famous tourist spot of China town. More people are connected to Dorje Shugden and will have the seeds planted into their mind. Rejoice.
    This is a best gift for our Lama Tsem Rinpoche on his birthday.

    With our integrity intact, life is less stressful and far less complicated. This is not applying in secular but also in the spiritual practice. If someone who does not have integrity will surely not earn respects from his peers.
    Integrity is very important in our life. It also a good habit for us to cultivate and take as reminder to ourselves that we need to keep hold to our promises in all aspect of chores we are doing.

    Chatral Rinpoche was one of the greatest meditation masters and most compassionate bodhisattvas in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. Chatral Rinpoche explains the purpose and benefit of saving the lives of endangered animals, especially those due to be slaughtered. Great advice by Chatral Rinpoche to develop compassion for all sentient beings . Save animals, save nature, as animal life is precious too. He lived as a humble yogi without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practiced what he preaches without compromise and was beloved , respected by many of all faiths throughout the Himalayan region. He was well known for his compassion for animals through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. He had liberate millions of fish animals and had encourages his student not to eat meat and drank alcohol. It’s a right choice to be on vegetarian , as more animals will be save. It be healthier for us, better for environment and kinder to be a vegetarian.
    Powerful saying by Chatral Rinpoche ……Eating meat in one’s diet is much different than eating flesh to liberate a being through supernatural powers. I am just an ordinary practitioner. I would be committing sin and I would be getting negative karma.
    Thank You for this sharing Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow.

    When i first read this article I did wonder too , how this ever happen. Somehow its real, a geological phenomenon where rocks move without human interference. Known as “sailing stones,” the rocks vary in size from a few ounces to hundreds of pounds. One of the world’s strangest phenomena is at Death Valley National Park in Inyo County, California, U.S. Till today, scientists could not have an answer to this strange phenomena where nobody have seen it moving at all.

    Animal abuse frequently occurred in a number of area. Its heart breaking looking at the pictures of that extreme animal and neglect case of a dog in this article . The abused dog was packed in a plastic bag and thrown down a trash chute in the 22-story building. So inhuman for someone to do that . Not only that the dog was under un nourishment, thin, dehydrated and looks more than a skeleton. The condition was so bad that the dog needs a blood transfusion. Thanks to the maintenance workers who found Patrick in the neat of time. Looking at those pictures one will be definitely shocking to see his condition. Thankfully, that poor dog named Patrick is recovering well after been nursed by the hospital staffs. Its one of the worst cases of abuse they’ve seen. A dog is men best friends , shouldn’t be abuse or harm them. Give them love, care as if they are one of us.

    The famous saying “What goes around, comes around”, karma in short is action and every action is preceded by our thoughts. Hence what we think continuously about something will eventually lead to action and the result. Its our mind that is responsible for our karma. Reading this post it has helped me and many of us to understand that we create our own reality or karma. I have book marked these so as i can read it time from time to remind myself. still plenty to catch up.

    Chatral Rinpoche was a Dzogchen master and a reclusive yogi known for his great realization and strict discipline. Beautiful and meaningful poems, all I can say the poem is full of wisdom. All animals deserves a life free from fear and pain. They do have hearts to feel the pain, eyes to see and families to care, just like one of us. Animal should be the right to be here, long before we arrive. If only we understand we care for them , we will help and save them or we can liberate them .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short and powerful teachings . The Four Noble Truths are the most basic formulation of the Buddha’s teaching. They are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree.
    To cease from evil, To do what is good. To cleanse one’s mind: This is the advice of all the Buddhas. Inspiring saying short yet powerful when we understand it . I will keep this in mind always.

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.

    3 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
