Grace’s private altar

Nov 25, 2012 | Views: 1,778

Four years ago, Grace and husband CK Leong discovered Kechara through Su Ming. Grace owns a hair salon at Bangsar Village 2 called Grace Salon, where Liaison Su Ming is a regular customer. When Su Ming spoke about Kechara to Grace she took an interest in it…

The first teaching Grace and CK Leong attended was in 2009, when I gave a teaching on pilgrimages in Nepal. Since then, they have regularly volunteered at Kechara Soup Kitchen and Kechara House. Very nice people. They regularly bring their two beautiful children, Melissa and Matthew, to feed the homeless and urban poor on KSK’s Saturday night rounds…

Grace recently moved into a new house where she specially built an outdoor altar! She did it specifically to have a private space to do her prayers. She designed her own altar and offered it up to the Buddhas… how wonderful! It shows her real devotion to the Buddha. She really takes her practice seriously.

    Wow ……such a beautiful alter, looks simple ,tide and marvellous surrounding tag at a quiet corner of
    Her house . A private out door corner ,where she can do her prayers , a beautiful idea to have it outdoor indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Grace for sharing this.

    I have came across this beautiful altar but didn’t know whom it belongs to. Now only I realized it belongs to a wonderful dharma couple named Mr and Mrs C.K. Leong. 🙂 I really love your private altar. It really shows that you take your practice seriously and have the initiative to build a private altar away from noise. I really wish to have a similar altar like yours in the future 🙂

  3. Felix Kong on Dec 1, 2013 at 1:14 am

    Wonderful idea to build an altar at Garden, this look like a small temple and able to be blessed surrounding all sentient beings. I like this design ,just simple and nice . Is very happy to see someone put some idea and decor for their own altar, put more effort to practice Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    感恩仁波切的分享

    这是如此美丽的佛龛呀,随喜功德,如此特别的设计,同时把佛龛顿时变成庄严无比,想必在这样的环境里做早课,是如此的祥和宁喜,加上佛龛设在家的外面,每每我们念诵心咒时,也能利益到四周围的一切有情众生

    祈愿我们所有的人都能设立起一个美丽的佛龛,无论用怎样的一个设计,我们都抱着好的发心,并是以最真诚的心迎亲各位佛菩萨的到来,并献上我们的供养,好让我们能累积更多的福德资粮,好使我们在佛法的修行道路上顺缘圆满

    感恩仁波切,祈愿仁波切长驻在世常转法轮

  5. tong sun sun on Nov 29, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    随喜和羡慕Grace有个漂亮和设计独特的佛龛,设计漂亮的佛龛供佛也是供养的一种,无比殊胜。但愿大家参考后陆续还有设计更好的佛龛出现。

    It is really nice to see people having a place/room just specially for their prayer purposes. It shows their respect towards their spiritual practice. I rejoice for Grace and her family to have such a beautiful alter. I hope that Grace and her family will also be able to meet the dharma in their next life.

  7. Jean Ai on Jan 15, 2013 at 2:00 am

    I know to practise covetousness is to break one of the 10 refuge vows…but OMB I WANT!

    I <3 looking at people's altars. Unlike some people who will look at altars to get ideas for their own, most times I can only marvel at and rejoice in how creatively people have arranged their altars because I'm not a very creative person.

    I think altars really reflect the practitioner who set it up. One common theme runs throughout all the altars I like. The ones I like the most have had a lot of love, care and thought put into setting them up. Because no matter how beautiful an altar is, if the practitioner who created it isn't real in their practice, somehow it doesn't have the same draw as an altar for a devoted person.

    So how jealous I am of someone's altar is generally a good indication of how serious the person is about their practice (or so I'd like to think hahaha). Grace's altar is so beautiful and elegant, and a real reflection of the practitioner.

    It’s so nice to have an altar in the garden, so peaceful and serene with trees around to do prayers and meditation in private,very well planned and i liked it very much.Thank you Rinpoche for posting on the blog and Grace for sharing.

  9. Cynthia Lee on Dec 17, 2012 at 12:30 am

    From my own very personal experience, it’s very important to plan a place for the Buddhas (if you are Buddhist) in your home and especially in your new home when you have the opportunity to. It helps to keep our priorities in tact! Before Kechara, I used to have an altar in my rented place talking up one whole wall space and that serves as a reminder to do offerings and prayers. When I finally move to a new place, I did not plan a space for my altar. That was when I stopped making offerings because there was just no altar to do so! 🙁

    Always always make space for an altar no matter how small your place is. This is coming straight from first hand experience. 🙂

  10. Girlie Ooi on Dec 11, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    What a beautiful place. The candles flickering at night give it a special warmth. Grace really put her heart into designing this altar. May she and her family always be blessed by the Buddhas.

  11. bk on Dec 11, 2012 at 2:23 am

    That looks so nice, peaceful and zen! I would love to have a place like that in my own home, but unfortunately there’s a severe lack of space.

    It’s very inspiring to know that people take their practice so seriously, and plan their home renovations around their spiritual needs. I hope more people who have the means do this too. After all, the more we offer to the Buddhas, the more merits we will gain. So if we have the means, then why not?

    What’s more, we are fortunate that its easy for us to find the necessary expertise and items to create such a spiritual space. Those in Malaysia can drop by Kechara Paradise (http://www.kechara.com/shopping) and speak to our in-house experts. And those abroad can visit http://vajrasecrets.com and contact our online experts too…

    It is very beautiful altar, that at outside the house. Their house looks so peaceful and it is nice place to do meditation 🙂

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing all this nice picture..

  13. Sean Wang on Dec 7, 2012 at 1:03 am

    It is really good to hear that people have been thinking about adding spirituality to their homes especially when moving into a new one. It really warms my heart.

    When someone has such thoughts, they are being less selfish and they are working towards a life where life is not a selfish thing but rather a beautiful and kind thing.

    The altar is extremely beautiful. When I went there, the place felt perfect for an altar, especially with it’s glass windows. Animals who even tread across their land may see the glorious face of the Buddha and be blessed and karmic imprints are planted.

  14. Grace Leong on Dec 4, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche and Dharma friends ,
    Thank you so much for all your kind words and good wishes . I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to have met such a great Guru and the Dharma . My sincere wish for everyone to have a wonderful spiritual journey in their precious life .

  15. Lucas Roth on Dec 3, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    wow this alter is beautiful and aunty Grace is a very nice women. she is a very kind and happy women. I hope she has a very long life so she can continue in the Dharma. 😀

  16. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 29, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    Such a nice place to set aside for the Buddhas. I do feel it is missing an iconic Big buddha to go with it hehe, having a big buddha image will bless the surroundings even much much more. Grace is always a great supporter of Kechara and just recently she came to cut hair for a few hardworking people at KFR!

  17. sweekeong on Nov 29, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Very beautiful altar. I like it very much. I would like to have one too. Hehe. Thank you Grace for sharing your home altar to us. It gives inspiration to other how we can create a personal creatively. 🙂

  18. Han on Nov 29, 2012 at 1:45 am

    Very nice altar outside the main house,
    Especially at night, looks ready serene and peaceful. May Grace and family always be blessed by the Buddhas!

  19. Louise Lee on Nov 28, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    从 Grace Leong 的 altar 就已经可以看到他与家人的用心!

    Grace 与丈夫孩子, 风雨不改的帮助做义工。 让我觉得很感动!

    最近, Grace 介绍了他朋友来 Kechara Blooms 当义工。 Event 完成后, Jennifer 还是有再来! Grace 的好榜样,让朋友从中学习! :-)

  20. patsy on Nov 28, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    This is a very well thought design and it is a very unique concept of having the prayer room outdoor in the garden. I am very impressed by her creative of having this beautiful serene prayer room. May she and her family be blessed always:)

  21. Judy on Nov 28, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    It is a brilliant concept to have a stand-alone altar outside the house. Happy Grace, CK and family can offer prayers in such a beautiful environment.

  22. Martin on Nov 28, 2012 at 1:13 am

    When someone takes the trouble to plan and create a special place dedicated only to their practice, it shows how important the practice is to them. So I am not at all surprised to see Grace’s having a very beautiful outdoor altar.

    Grace, CK and their son Matthew are regular faces as KSK food distribution and recently they have added KFR to their list of practical Dharma, and are there very frequently to help out, very often doing the most difficult jobs which others shun.

    What a beautiful and serene altar. It really reflects the character.

    Thank you for sharing this Grace.

  23. soonhuat on Nov 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    I love the altar and it is always my dream to have this private altar to do my puja and praying.

  24. HelenaC on Nov 27, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Wow, it is a beautiful and cozy altar that Grace has. It is very nice while doing her daily prayer at the outdoor, enjoying the fresh breeze :)in the morning. Rejoice for Grace and her family, She is blessed by the 3 Jewels.

  25. wei theng on Nov 27, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    It is a very beautiful altar & offerings. Nicely setup and arranged. It’s so serene, calm and beautiful. WIth the altar outdoor, it will also bless all the birds and insects and animal passing by and have the imprint of Buddha in them. So blessed!
    Grace has been volunteering a lot in Kechara. She is also attending Lamrim classes without fail. Rejoice to see her with her new altar and progressing in her spiritual journey. Best of all, she is practicing with her husband & son too! That’s a model Dharma family!

  26. Jace Chong on Nov 27, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Rejoice for Grace and her family for having such a nice place to do prayers and meditation.

    It’s so exclusive and simple. It must me very peaceful especially at night.

    If I have an area to build my own altar, I might build it the same way, maybe bigger so I can prostration retreat inside as well.

    Thanks Grace for the good idea!!

  27. Uncle Eddie on Nov 27, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    An altar is said to be a sacred place where we go to connect the divine spirit within us. It is this special place that helps us to withdraw from the busyness of life to rejuvenate and connect our ernegy with the divine spirituality of our choice. Therefore, an altar can be considered as a place of our choice to which one goes to, to concentrate his/her energy for many purposes. Altars generally are a part of ancient traditions and have been used as places of worship for thousand of years. It is said that a good development and frequent use of an alter can also bring about family harmony,peace and a happy unity. The development and use of altar in your home can certainly enrich your life and bring about many good blessings. Therefore, what Grace and CK leong have done are wise moves, and may they receive deserving powerful, fulfilling and enrich blessings always.

  28. Sarah on Nov 27, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    The first time I saw Grace’s altar, I must say that I was totally impressed! I love it how she actually set such a beautiful altar to do meditations and her sadhana daily. Her family are very devoted to Dharma, and it is not only by words but they show it by action! I wish her and her family much spiritual advancement!

  29. Sock Wan on Nov 27, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Wow, such a nice outdoor altar. Everyone should have a “peace” corner like this, to contemplate, to talk to inner self.

  30. DR on Nov 27, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Very nice prayer room and well thought out. It is nice to see some people taking their spiritual journey as priority. It is never about the size of one’s home. With some, they can have big statues and altars in their apartments while with some people, a one foot statue is said to be too big to fit into their sprawling mansion. So it all boils down to where one’s priority is.

    Grace is very fortunate to have her own private space for something so precious. Very nice indeed.

  31. tenzin llhamo on Nov 27, 2012 at 12:58 am

    Wow! Grace’s altar is so unique and special! Any birds or insects that passes by will also be blessed! It looks so nice at night with the lights and candles. And the part where she used the 2 cupboard doors made it even more special! Cool and breezy! I wish I have a house that big to have a garden altar. Hehe..

  32. Alan Chan ( KHJB ) on Nov 27, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Wow ! Wonderful ! Grace had show us the good example which we can build outside alter in the garden, It is so special to do the Sadhana in night time. I am really rejoice on it ! Thank you Rinpoche Sharing.

  33. Grace Leu ( KHJB ) on Nov 26, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    very nice and beautiful altar, it make us felt calm and i can felt Grace sincerity towards Buddha.

  34. Milly on Nov 26, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Its a very beautiful prayer house. So serene especially at night with candles flickering on the altar. I love the garlands of jasmine offerings on the holy images. May the Buddhas continue to bless Grace and family in their new home.

  35. Low ksjc on Nov 26, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.Grace was very meticulous from the time she plan the alter until the final touches she add on to the altar finishing.She was very mindful in the position of the altar and the benefit it will bring to the entire surrounding.I am sure she is very deli gent to maintain the altar as most people would not consider outdoors. She is a true inspiration for us all when come to setting up a modern altar.

  36. Carmen K. on Nov 26, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    OMG Aunty Grace, I didn’t know that there would be a post on your altar! hehe. Ever since I stumbled upon your altar, I’ve fallen in love with it. It’s really serene, and comforting. It brings a sense of calmness even gazing at your altar. It’s really done up well and very nice. Blesses all the guests that comes to your house weekly, as well as your family and your pets on a daily basis. I am sure it must be really stress-relieving to do meditations and prayers in there.

    There have been many times that I have seen Grace doing her Sadhana as well as sitting outdoors and reading the Lamrim. She is committed and dedicated to learning the path towards liberation, and have ignited the same interest in her husband CK and children as well. As a family, they partake in the many activities of Kechara. CK Leong even came up to Kechara Forest Retreat one day to cook for the volunteers over there! 🙂 Not the first time though…he did it in the Kechara House Wesak Fair too, to raise funds. His fried rice is superb.

    Anyways, it’s nice to see another family in Dharma practising and applying the teachings of Lord Buddha in their everyday lives. They are the best landlords you could ever have! 🙂

  37. Mei Fong on Nov 26, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I really like the altar being in a separate unit by itself. It looks so calming and serene to do prayers and to meditate there.
    The modern and simple looking altar is just fabulous. The altar has so much more room to expand itself in the future.
    Rejoice for Grace.

  38. Janice Kwok on Nov 26, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Grace is a quiet and elegant person and the altar reflects her. Its inspiring, private and serene yet will bless the surrondings and all those who walk by. Beautiful idea. Thank you Grace for sharing. May the Buddhas bless you and your family always.

  39. Lim (KH JB) on Nov 26, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Rejoice for Grace, ur altar is so beautiful yet cozy… Thanks Rinpoche for sharing with us. The outdoor altar may benefit even more sentient beings in that area…

  40. June Tang (KHJB) on Nov 26, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful altar pictures.Grace’s altar really very beautiful and creative at outdoor,I like it very much!!May Grace and whole family blessed by 3 jewels everyday !!

  41. Wah Ying on Nov 26, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I first saw Grace’s outdoor altar when she sent in for the altar competition, I was like wow, so zen, so serene and I like it very much. Altar can be very cool also, and not suppose to hide in one small corner of our house. Thanks Grace for the great idea!

  42. patricia on Nov 26, 2012 at 8:51 am

    What a beautiful beautiful altar and in such a lovely setting. I’ve always wanted to create an outdoor altar, unfortunately, my neighbors will just tear it down. 🙁

    • patricia on Nov 26, 2012 at 8:53 am

      I am so happy that Grace lives in such a place where the Dharma is respected and cherished. She is so blessed.

  43. adelinewoon on Nov 26, 2012 at 6:38 am

    Wow! How nice is this! Grace is obviously serious about her practice to have thought so thoroughly in making an altar home for her to do her sadhanas. I’m very impressed with her creativity and thank her for showing such good example to all of us. When we take something seriously, there is no way for us to not do it with all our heart!

  44. William on Nov 26, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Grace’s altar is very beautiful and is very private for her practice. I love it being outdoors where she can pray, meditate in the outdoors and have fresh air. Grace, CK and their son Matthew are very supportive of Kechara. The whole family goes to help and distribute food to the homeless with KSK every Saturday! What a committed family!

  45. Jessica Yap on Nov 26, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Very nice altar Grace! I can imagine doing Saddhanas in the private outdoor prayer room. It is so beautiful and cosy. Must be very nice to be surrounded by greenery scenes and have a private moment while praying.. And we will be able to do that in KFR soon! hehe

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  46. Erickksiow on Nov 26, 2012 at 12:34 am

    Such a Beautiful and simple altar. Wonderful idea and it’s a wonderful offering to the Buddha. Rejoice for Grace and CK Leong. 🙂

    Regards : Erickksiow

  47. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 25, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Setting up altar for Buddha Statue is not where you simply get a space to put it, it is not the altar which arrange around other things but if set the place best suit the altar, then other things arrange around it. Altar is the more important than any other stuff, because it is our spiritual practice.

    It is nice to see Grace set up such beautiful Altar in the garden, an Altar within the trees, a mini KFR in Grace’s house?? hehe…

  48. jennifer on Nov 25, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the pictures of Grace’s beautiful altar! Grace had really put in much thought in the whole design and concept of this very sacred place, it’s cozy,modern,practical and very private.Being built in the garden , with glass walls would surely bring in the most peaceful energies of nature.
    Beautiful !!! Love it !

  49. Sofi on Nov 25, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Beautiful offering to the Buddhas. Her prayer house is such a peaceful place for prayers, neditating n comtemplation. The careful planning and construction shows how much importance Grace and her family placed on their Dharma practise. May be continually blessed by the Buddhas.

  50. Sheryl KH (JB) on Nov 25, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    I came across pictures of Grace’s private altar during Kechara’s altar competition and I really like them very much.

    I feel that it is really very creative to have altar set outdoor, and the thought of building a house specifically for Buddhas is precious. Furthermore, Grace only comes to know about Buddhism purely a short 4 years ago, so this kind of dedication and creativity is very valuable in my eyes.

    I wish Grace much advancement in her spirituality and that her whole family is blessed by Three Jewels continously.

  51. May Ong on Nov 25, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Grace Leong built the outside altar with lots of details in mind. She even planned for the 2 Tibetan cupboard doors. That planning takes time and detail. The altar is simple, elegant, comfortable and private, blessed too. Thanks for sharing your home with us, Grace.

  52. lewkwanleng on Nov 25, 2012 at 11:38 am

    It is really nice to see people to have special thoughts for Buddha when doing their house renovation. I think it is a step towards selfless, where we don’t only think about me me me.

    I like the altar because it is simple and especially at night, it is really cozy. With mosquito netting, it will definitely a very nice place to do Sadhana, contemplation and meditation.

    From the photos, I would like to suggest Grace to have a wooden seat which will be more comfortable when sitting cross legged, and it will be more durable for “outdoor” and not afraid of rain/water.

    Ganden Sumtseling or Songzanlin or Guihua Monastery is also known as “Little Potala Palace”. Sumtseling Monastery is located just outside the city of Zhongdian (later renamed to Shangri-la in 2001). It is the largest Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. Established by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama in 1679, the monastery was built during the rule of Qing Dynasty Emperor Kangxi, who fully patronized the development of the monastery. One of the most special features of the monastery is its blending of Tibetan and Chinese-style architecture.

    He is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to on a daily basis, but says that he “refuses to worry about it.” He does take steps, however, by only eating food imported into the zone.

    Over the last decades , China have since built more, huge impressive mega statues around the Chinese landscape. It seem these mega-statues are even more stunning than its towering skyscrapers and indeed very impressive. China is a great Buddhist land, with Buddha statues of all sizes rising up through history. And some of which are among the largest or tallest in the world. China has a long history of Buddhist art and sculpture. Through out history China been a great Buddhist land had built many awe-inspiring, Buddha statues, from been the highest to the largest statues in the world. I wish I could visit and see those huge Buddhist statues in future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures of those huge statues.

    China is a vast country with many huge statues been built over the centuries. Having a long history of Buddhism, the statues been built with ancient architectures ,art and sculpture of various sizes . Some of those seem to be the world largest and tallest . Amazing to look at those beautiful statues been rich in their culture for thousands of years. They are built all over China, every province there are at least one or two amazing structure. Buddha statues are getting bigger on mainland China in bid to lure pilgrims and tourists. I would love to see those amazing structures Buddhist statues. Out of those 24 huge Statues in China , I have only visited Big Buddha of Lingshan (Buddha Shakyamuni), Big Buddha of Leshan, Sichuan, Samantabhadra, Sichuan Province and Manjushri, Shanxi Province.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow ….what a fantastic discovery by astronomers’ search . There are other habitable planets out in the sky. Planets like earth in the out space are not rare to the scientist. There’s more to life on earth and earth is often referred to as a Goldilocks planet. Astronomers found a first truly earth-like planet in habitable zone after years of research. New discovery lead by Steven Vogt and Paul Butler suggested our galaxy may be teeming with potentially habitable planets . Could not have imagine there are 200 billion stars in the universe, there could be a possibility that there are more life in other planets which are not yet found. Steven Scott Vogt and Paul Butler are one of those astronomer whose main interest is the search for extra solar planets. The planet Earth was believed to be the center of the universe, there are innumerable beings in the universe. Interesting read.
    According to the Buddha, there are some other forms of life existing in other parts of the universe. I do believe that as found in other Buddhist scriptures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HONG KONG: Microplastic contamination has been found in tap water in countries around the world, leading to calls from scientists for urgent research on the implications for health.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The US had the highest contamination rate, at 94 per cent, with plastic fibres found in tap water sampled at sites including Congress buildings, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters, and Trump Tower in New York. Lebanon and India had the next highest rates.

    Every time you buy a fashion item made from leather – be it a trendy handbag, a piece of comfortable shoes – please think about the tremendous cruelty that stands at the foundation of that product. This petition targets both the Chinese government – who has repeatedly failed to adopt animal welfare laws and has allowed this industry to thrive – as well as consumers worldwide, to take the pledge to go cruel-free and stop purchasing leather products.

    Please stop buying leather products from today https://bit.ly/2sWcGMW

    There is some wonderful news in the animal world after California pet stores have been told they must get their puppies, kittens and rabbits from shelters and rescue centres only.

    As of January 2019, it will be illegal for stores to buy animals from pet breeders and any store being caught will face a fine of $500.

    Individual, private buyers will still be able to buy their pets from a breeder, reports the New York Times.

    [22:04, 19/7/2019] Vajrasecrets.com: Thanks to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for spreading information about Dorje Shugden.


    I am happy to say that Dorje Shugden is my new best friend. But he feels very familiar to me. It’s as if this is not my first encounter with him. Perhaps I was a Dorje Shugden fan in one of my past lives.


    I’ll keep this testimony simple without going into much detail about what happened. All I can say is I love you Dorje Shugden and I hope to have a better connection with you.


    Although I am not a Buddhist, I respect and accept other religions. I wish I had known about Dorje Shugden much earlier because I have been volunteering for Kechara since 2017.



    Here are a few situations where I have experienced miraculous results:
    1. I had problems waking up on Saturday. After saying OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA once, I could feel my muscles getting better and it was just easy for me to wake up.
    2. My eyes suddenly hurt when I was doing my work in front of the computer. I could not open them so I began uttering OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA in silence. To my surprise, my eyes were not sore anymore. After the third recitation, my problem went away.
    I am not going to go into detail about what happened because I am a private person, but DS is amazing.
    3. I have awards in my field of work, but I could not do my work. That was my first encounter with Dorje Shugden’s mantra. After I said the mantra, I started coughing and felt like throwing up. The next day, I could finish my work.
    4. A lady suddenly caused me trouble. I accepted the fact that she did not like me and expressed how I felt to her expecting that day would turn into a horrible day. She suddenly told me that she would follow everything I told her without any questions asked.
    I did not say OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA at that time, but at that moment when she responded to me in that way, I somehow knew or felt that it was Dorje Shugden’s assistance. I did not even ask him and he was there.
    5. I felt a positive shift….like a strong knowing that everything is going to be alright. And I felt that message was from Dorje Shugden.
    There are too many stories to share.
    Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    I love you. Thank you.

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
