Datin Jennifer with her great helpers

Dear friends,

Recently, I had a group of people over at Haven to work on an exciting project. There were many people who came and Datin Jennifer was one of them who offered to help out.

Datin Jennifer is the mother of Jamie. She is a very kind and generous lady. Not only is she a sponsor of many Kechara departments and activities, she also strongly supports her daughter’s Dharma work AND maintains her own spiritual practice at home. I like Datin Jennifer very much…

Datin Jennifer is a lady of many talents… One of them being cooking! She loves to cook and feed people also *animals. Whenever she steps into the kitchen, she is all equipped to cook up a storm for at least 20 people… hehe. While she was at Haven the other day, she decided to bake a cake for everyone who were working very hard.

Datin Jennifer has promised to come to where I live (ladrang) a certain amount of times per month every month. It is her contribution/commitment and her dharma work among other practices she is doing. Everyone can contribute to Dharma in their own special way…We have over 15 persons in the ladrang dept and they are always hungry…she is like a mama bird bringing food to the nest and all 15 chicks have their mouths wide open..hehehehe..I welcome Datin Jennifer very much.

While she was at it, a group of my younger students decided to help her out… did they really help her out or mess things out? Watch the video below to find out!

P.S. Datin Jennifer loves animals…

    Datin Jennifer is a very lovely and helpful lady. She is always very cheerful and happy. Jamie must be really proud of her mama. <3
    Thank You for sharing such a lovely video Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

    This is so funny! It was so fun helping with the baking. The product was very delicious! Hehe! Datin Jennifer’s reaction was very funny, she looked bored and amused at the same time. She was probably wondering why was everyone so interested!

  4. Lucas Roth on Feb 21, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Datin jennifer is so nice and caring. every time i see her she has a huge smile on her face :D. her helpers are nice too, but be careful Jutika can be tricky… hehe. They are all very nice people and i am so sure we all like them.

  5. Jean Mei on Jan 31, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    I LOVE IT whenever Datin Jennifer comes over. She’s such a lovely lady who’s always chatty, bubbly and in a cheery mood. She comes prepared to cook with her additional cutleries, and whenever she walks into Rinpoche’s Ladrang she has 5 big bags of ingredients. You’d think that she was cooking up a feast!

    She jokes that she doesn’t know how to cook in small portions, but really, it looks like she’s cooking for an army. When there are 20 people in the Ladrang, she’d cook for 50.

    When people say that they don’t know how to contribute to the Dharma, Datin Jennifer shows that there’s always a way. She does what she can do, and pushes herself to do more.

    She can cook very well, and offers her culinary skills to feed the younger ones who (unfortunately) have very pathetic culinary skills! lol

    It’s always a treat to have Datin Jennifer around 🙂

  6. wei theng on Dec 17, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Hahaha, this is really funny and cute!

    Datin Jeniffer is not just a good cook, but a great accountant too! She is very inspiring to me as she has no ego at all with her being the professional accountant, instead, she is always very humble, generous, loving and she is kind to all around her as well as to dogs. Her dogs are just like her sons! Her Guru devotion to Rinpoche is also very strong. She just followed the instructions given by Rinpoche do it diligently be it to do her mantra or to spend a few days a week to be at Rinpoche’s Ladrang. She will just do it with a smiling face and do it with her 100% effort!

    May she always healthy and close to Rinpoche!

  7. Milly on Nov 21, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    All the laughter and happy faces while mixing the ingredients will sure turn out to be a yummy cake. Good vibes. Datin Jennifer is a very kind lady and one can feel this energy when around here. I admire Datin’s bubbly and kind personality.

  8. Cynthia Ng on Jun 25, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    好有趣!由小到老一起共度佛法欢乐时光,这就是真正的佛法!想请问那次的蛋糕成功烘制成功吗?? 😀

  9. Yoke Fui on Jun 25, 2012 at 6:12 am

    Datin Jennifer is a warm and caring auntie for all the younger Kecharians. It’s not surprising why all the little “monsters” are naturally drawn towards her.

    She always baked a few cakes and gave them to the annual Kechara Wesak Fair for fund raising purpose.

    She has always been supportive of all the different departments of Kechara and we all love her !

  10. Karen C. on Jun 15, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    OH I definitely love Datin Jennifer’s food!! I love her lemon cake! Super yummy 😀 Other than food, she is an extremely nice and elegant lady who speaks well and is very devoted to Rinpoche.

    Agreed with Bryan, the 3 kind ladies he mentioned are super mama. They contribute to Dharma with their talents in cooking. They not only always offer food to Rinpoche, they would also cook for us to eat. This shows that they are not selfish at all and they really take care of this big family in Dharma like their own family.

  11. deborah on Jun 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    She really is one of the loveliest people I’ve met. Her warmth and kindness is deep and so real, you feel it instantly.
    She only met me a few times, but after the first time she greeted me as if she’s known me forever.
    LEW- ya 0.54 -0.56, her expression was priceless

  12. june ksjc on May 15, 2012 at 2:49 am

    生动的敘述,温馨嬉闹的画面 与喜悦的笑声真的让我感觉好温暖。挂在Datin Jennifer和其他人脸上的笑容足以证明他们真的很快乐!能在Kechara 这一个大家庭里学习佛法,做佛事和能够侍奉上师是一件多么开心的事哦!!

  13. Adrian Cho on May 14, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    They are so happily and enjoying baked cakes…
    The boys is so excited and so funny…haha

  14. James Long on May 12, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Just like all the 84 mahasiddha, they all have their unique way to gain enlightenment, but most important is Guru Devotion, believe and trust the Guru. Datin Jennifer is very down to earth and gentle lady, who LOVES to cook nice food for people and she is a pet lover..all the mumu in her house are mostly “out of shape”….lol

  15. Pastor Chia on May 12, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Datin Jeniffer always so kind with people and animal. she can’t stand watching people or animal hungry. all her dog are feed well and healthy. We are so lucky having she around cooking for rinpoche and ladrang staff.

  16. Albert on May 12, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    haha, this is so cute and so funny, working in Dharma, when we work with a group of “interesting” people, it can be very fun too. everyone has different personality, but everyone can still work together, isn’t this beautiful??

    Datin sure was thinking, will i able to finish cooking with their help or not. They must be in great help… lol

  17. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 12, 2012 at 2:08 am

    How fun to able to bake our way to enlightenment! To be honest, the batter do look kind of unappetizing. LOL! Too bad Jamie did not take a picture of the end result. Bet the cake was delicious.. Hey, how about baking some cakes and sending some over to the other departments, Datin Jennifer? hehe!

  18. Darren on May 11, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    They sure do having fun baking the cake. But i m worry of extra unwanted ingredient in the cake lol.

  19. Junior on May 10, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Datin Jennifer is amazing example of kindness..

  20. abby F on May 10, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    That day Datin Jennifer told me that she loves to cook very much! ( im sure all of us know this well) I can see Datin Jennifer, the small kids and ‘big kids’ are enjoying themselves there.

    What Rinpoche said is right, everyone can contribute to Dharma in their own special way. No matter how old or how young you are,you can always help and bring happiness to others!

  21. jp on May 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Datin Jennifer is a very sweet friend of mine. It was through Datin Jennifer whom I met her daughter, Jamie aka Paris. Jamie introduced me to Rinpoche. That was more than 5 years ago. Time flies.

    Datin Jennifer cooks very well. She used to fill up her dining table with food during our gatherings. She’d feed us non stop. Even her dogs are all fat! hehe

  22. wan on May 9, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Datin Jennifer is a sweet, gentle lady..
    i love her cake too..

    Thank you Datin Jennifer for baking cake at haven. People there work very hard twenty four-seven so they deserve deliciousssss cake..yummy

  23. patsy on May 9, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Hahaha so the “suppose to be a chocolate cake” turned out well and tasted good also. It should be when it is prepared with so much love, sweat and laughter.

  24. wah ying on May 8, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    大家动手一起准备食物、用餐总能比在外用餐拉近彼此的距离,那种感觉很温馨。这也难怪,炎热的马来西亚,还能多人还是喜欢吃火锅—常常吃了很多下肚,不消一会儿肚子就咕咕作响了。能享用Datin Jennifer的巧克力蛋糕的朋友真是太有口福了,没有机会享用的,看着视频想象一下巧克力的香浓应该也挺不错的!哈哈!

  25. Erickksiow on May 8, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Datin Jennifer really spend her times to cooked for everyone in Haven. Proud of Jamie. :))

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  26. Davin on May 8, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    They looks excited and happy helping Datin to stir up to make the cake. Datin patiently waited for them. Its remind me when I help my mom to cook. It was very happy moment.

  27. MayOng on May 8, 2012 at 11:46 am

    I hope the cake turned out well with all those human muscle whipping, turning, folding LOL

  28. tenzin llhamo on May 8, 2012 at 1:13 am

    The boys really look excited! I wonder how was the cake? Must be delicious, with so many elves to help out! Am sure Datin was just thinking to herself : “it’s just mixing, why so super excited?” Hahaha…
    Datin is always super sweet and nice. 1 day must try her cake, am sure it’s super nice!

  29. Doris Tan on May 7, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Omb.. I hope the cake is edible. But it is quite a fun video to watch. =)

  30. Angelshooi on May 7, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    OMB! very exciting and real fun to see them baking cake.

    Datin Jennifer was patiently waiting for her assistance to mix the cake. The chocolate cake would have tasted with extra ingredients.

  31. Paris on May 7, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    My mummy! This is true about how she loves feeding people and being constantly worried about people not having enough food. We have a joke in our home that she cooks enough for armies each time she steps into the kitchen. She’s found the right place to feed people now @ the Haven. If you’re all wondering why I can never lose weight, part of this is because my mother keeps making delicious food that I can never say no to (hey, it would hurt her feelings if I didn’t eat it all right?!)

    And yes, she is just as worried about feeding dogs as she is with humans – perhaps more so. She’s the biggest sucker for a sad story about a dog or a cat, or anything furry with four legs and a tail. There’s a lovely story here about how she adopted a tiny little Schnauzer rescued by Rinpoche, called Gonkar: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/baby-gongkar-finds-a-home.html
    And thank god she did – Gonkar has a tremendous amount of medical problems and if he didn’t make it into a good, caring home, he would have surely died. He’s now in good health, rather fat and very noisy.

    Mum is now also coming into Haven to volunteer and cook for us at the Haven twice a week. She’s helping out with Ladrang accounts too because she rocks the accounting world (you would never guess I’m her a daughter, being so completely inept with figures).

    She’s also learning how to use the computer, to read blogs and comments – which is amazing because she’s terrified of even turning on a computer.

    I’m so proud to call her my mum, for all she has done and for the amazing example of kindness she has shown me my whole life. More about mumsy here: http://theeffortlessbeauty.com/wordpress/?p=295)

    Best of all, I know she’s reading these posts about her and SHE IS TOTALLY EMBARRASSED MUAHAHAHAHAHAH.

    I LOVE YOU MUPPET xxxxxx

  32. mitra on May 7, 2012 at 10:49 am

    mama you are so cute.so kind so lovely.

  33. wt on May 7, 2012 at 3:52 am

    hahah, serving Lama is not just a serious job, it can be fun too! 😛
    btw, Datin Jennifer is very inspiring. She is very humble and strong in Guru devotion.

  34. Pastor Yek Yee on May 6, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Datin Jennifer baking a chocolate cake, oh no! It’s will be so delicious…I ate the cookies that cooked by Datin Jennifer. It is so delicious. Until today, I still can remember the smell haha…I like Datin Jennifer because she like everyone mother, even though I not so close with her, but I can her motherly”smell”. I am happy Datin Jennifer be more and more involve dharma activities. I think the precious gift Paris gave to her mum is DHARMA.I AM REJOICE!!!

  35. Bryan on May 6, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I love Datin Jennifer… and her famous line is “Don’t call me Datin or Aunty, just call me Jennifer”. She is such a wonderful and sweet lady, but most important she cook VERY NICE FOOD !!! We have few great “cooks” that always come into Haven and cook for us.

    Being a “British Lady” Jennifer always cooked us western food, such as pasta, cakes and etc. She is my Princess Diana. Another wonderful lady Mrs. Chuah, who is Ms. Chuah Su Ming’s mum also always come in and cook for us. Mrs. Chuah is in charge of Asian food… I believe a lot of us have tried Mrs. Chuah’s Tom Yam and chinese soup…

    Recently Fiona Ng, another volunteer that regularly help up in Kechara Care also started to cook food for us, and her famous dish is Black Vinegar Eggs…

    Three of this ladies are house wife, and they still find their way to contribute to the dharma, they can’t do much physical works like moving things around, but they still spent their time to do something to care for others. I love three of them very much (not only because of their food), and i hope three of them always healthy and blessed with Buddha.

    Thanks

    • DR on May 9, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      I like what you wrote Bryan; eventhough these ladies are unable to do much physical work, yet they did not make excuses but find other ways to contribute to dharma work. Just like in a monastery, monks who can teach will teach. Those who can raise funds will travel overseas to do that. Those who can do administration work will be the changtso. Then there are other monks who clean and cook.

      In Kechara, we have it all too. All due to the kindness of Rinpoche who created so many departments and is still constantly coming up with ideas so that anyone and everyone can contribute to the dharma.

      I agree with you that Datin Jennifer’s cakes, Mrs Chuah’s soup and Fiona’s hard boiled eggs in black vinegar and ginger is super yummy! Oh dear, suddenly I am hungry again…..

  36. Lim Han Nee on May 6, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    So finally it wasn’t the case of too many cooks…..The cake did turn out to be delicious, with Datin Jennifer’s magical hands!Anyway, all the young helpers looked so keen and seemed to be having fun too!

    Yes, Datin is a lovely, warm bubbly person whose compassion towards animals is rare. I remember her adopting George, the stray dog, who’d been hanging outside Kechara Care for quite a while, before that.When George fell very ill, she had a Menlha done for him. Recently, unfortunately, George passed away.But , because of Datin Jennifer’s kindness and love, he was in pain and suffering for only a while before he died.Datin Jennifer, I love you for the unconditional love you showed George and all your pets and adopted stray dogs under your care.

  37. Victor Phang on May 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Even though I don’t have the chance to taste the cake but it is “delicious” as well to see all the smiling faces… very “Sweet” cake 🙂
    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.
    Take good care,
    With love,
    VP

  38. hecelus tan on May 6, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    She is a good example for all of us,she always spend her time on meaningful activity like Rinpoche have mentioned before,I think can help in Dharma is great,I also wish I will have the opportunity to work for Dharma in future.

  39. henry ooi on May 6, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    I’m sure that chocolate cake must have tasted better with extra ingredients from those clowns’ saliva and perspiration dripping from their hands into the bowl! LOL!

    And at one point, Datin Jennifer with her chin resting on one hand must have thought “Oh, what the heck!” LOL!

  40. mayy on May 6, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Haha….See how Datin Jennifer looks upon the “human cake mixer” mixing the cake! Was wondering the cake would turn out well. It is always FUN to have Datin Jennifer to bake and cook. In fact, her food is delicious! Can’t wait to have a chomp on Datin’s next food party.

  41. Girlie on May 6, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Look at all the happy faces – I am sure they all lighted up when the tasted the fruit of their hard work.

  42. Ashlee on May 6, 2012 at 11:25 am

    Haha..after how the boys stirred the mixture left and right..glad to know that the cake turns out well. Datin Jen must have used a fool proofed recipe..haha. She was certainly look bored and probably wondering why the boys are so excited over a choc cake mixture. Heh! Heh!

  43. William C on May 5, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Datin Jennifer is a great cook. Her food is yummy. Just a few days ago, she brought over a big pot of “Tau Yew Bak” (Black Soya Sauce Pork)- vegetarian of course. She is such a happy and bubbly lady who enjoys making others happy. We are very lucky to have her cook for Rinpoche and us…… Thank you Datin Jennifer!!!

  44. edward on May 5, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    Their faces showed that they enjoyed it.And is very fun to baked cakes together with friends.

  45. Elena on May 5, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    LOL “It’s supposed to be a chocolate cake” hahahahaha that’s so funny! And Su An’s expression when she sniffed the mixture was priceless! Datin Jennifer, the cake was deeeeeeelicious, thank you for always coming to spoil us haven monsters! We love having you around…a very gentle, sweet, motherly presence in the haven!

    • lanse on May 5, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      Haha, Elena, thanks for your sharing. At least I know it still turned out to be a cake. This boys were so excited, you should see Datin Jennifer’s facial expression at 00:52 and 1:12. Haha, she is so cute!

      I like Datin Jennifer a lot. Spending some time with her, you will know why Paris is so pleasant, kind and fun too.

  46. Siong Woan on May 5, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Hahaha.. all the CUTEST people are in this video!!

    LOVE it!!

    Err.. Datin, when is the next baking time ?? cant wait 🙂

  47. Melissa Sin on May 5, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Oh how adorably cute! HAHA! 😀 Wasn’t there an electrical mixer?

  48. Melissa Sin on May 5, 2012 at 11:35 am

    Oh how cute! hahah! 😀

  49. Thierry on May 5, 2012 at 10:38 am

      Ha Ha Ha ! Theirry’s mantra.

      Nothing beats Mama’s cooking, in this case it’s datin Jennifer’s cake : )

  50. Irene Lim on May 5, 2012 at 9:59 am

    You are very sweet Datin Jennifer. All the young people at Ladrang needs your motherly love and care. I rejoice you are able to contribute by looking after our young ones, our future generation in Kechara. Thank you Datin!

  51. lewkwanleng on May 5, 2012 at 6:09 am

    You must check out this video at 0:56, Datin looked so bored, and wonder why these men are so excited… 🙂 LOL

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him.

    This story is very inspiring.Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants.
    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    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

  • 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
