Mama Mooi Lan

On the evening of May 19, I sadly went to perform funeral rites for Mama Mooi Lan… Mama Mooi Lan is my long-time Dharma friend who helped me a lot when I first came to Malaysia. She has been my friend and supporter for 20 years now. We have had a very good relationship. She was only 62 and she has been ill for years and finally her gentle heart gave out.

Mama Mooi Lan with her group of friends I fondly dubbed “Cheras group” were very helpful and kind and never asked for anything back. I fondly call them the “Cheras group” as Mama Mooi Lan and her beautiful Dharma brothers and sisters are all from Cheras. They have even visited me in Gaden Monastery

Mama Mooi Lan’s family were always very supportive of what she did… I previously blogged about her in 2010, everyone must read to see how much Mama Mooi Lan has done.

After performing the funeral rites, I sat down with her family and had a talk with them. I gave them some dharma instructions for them for the next 49 days. I explained that because Mama Mooi Lan had done a lot of Dharma work in her life, she will have great merits to take a very good rebirth. Although it is understandable that everyone will be sad because they miss her, the family need not worry for Mama Mooi Lan. She will be alright. I also told the family how much I appreciated Mama Mooi Lan’s kindness and help very much. Kechara is where it is today because of beautiful Mama Mooi Lan and the Cheras group. I have taken some of Mama Mooi Lan’s hair to be placed in our holy Vajra Yogini stupa in the future.

Apart from the prayers that I did for her, pujas were also arranged to be done at the monastery in India for her by myself, Kechara’s puja team went to perform pujas for Mama Mooi Lan, and on the following day, Kechara’s pastors were present during her cremation ceremony. I appreciate our Kechara Puja team conducting funeral services and also Kechara Oasis (our Vegetarian Restaurant) providing food and nourishment for the mourners.

Out of great appreciation for Mama Mooi Lan and her family’s kindness all these years, I gave a contribution for Mama Mooi Lan’s funeral. I wish her family well always. Kechara also sponsored vegetarian dinner at the wake for family and friends. Mama Mooi Lan, you are much appreciated and will not be forgotten.

Reciting prayers for Mama Mooi Lan at the funeral home… next to me is her daughter Jojo and granddaughter. I gave a nice Manjushri pendant to her granddaughter so that Manjushri can bless her. Mama Mooi Lan had wanted her grandaughter blessed.

Kechara’s puja team doing prayers for Mama Mooi Lan at the funeral home. They were ready to galvanize to be there at a minute’s notice. Trained for doing pujas for all occasions.

Beautiful offerings set out to collect merits for Mama Mooi Lan’s good and swift rebirth. The Buddha Dukkar and Dukkar puja was done for Mama Mooi Lan by our Kechara Team. Dukkar was the Buddha I assigned Mama Mooi Lan years ago. She had kept to her Dukkar practice.

 


 

Baby Tashi

La_013ater that night at around 4am, I had just finished my daily sadhana and was getting ready to rest. My assistant Pastor Loh Seng Piow received several emergency calls from one of my long-time student, A. According to Pastor Loh Seng Piow, A sounded distraught and a little lost… his wife had just gone through a miscarriage of a 3-month old baby. They were still at the hospital and A didn’t know what to do.

A few liaisons and assistants were still awake then, so I quickly gave instructions to prepare a few things and at around 5.30am we went to University Hospital. Together with me was Pastor Susan, Pastor Yek Yee, Lew, Jean Mei and Bryan.

When we arrived, A and his wife were fine but were understandably very upset as it was their first child. Everything happened much too quickly. A few hours earlier, A‘s wife had felt that something was wrong so they left for the clinic. At the clinic, she experienced the miscarriage when her 3-month-old child came out of her unexpectedly. The clinic directed them to the hospital.

I spoke to the couple for a while at the hospital’s A&E lobby… my assistants gave them warm food and drinks for the couple and A‘s mother. They were hungry and thirsty but had no time to eat the whole night because of what had happened.

Even before being born, this baby died at 3 months old… I wanted to do a prayer for the baby for him to take a good rebirth. Pastor Susan and A‘s mother went to settle the administrative procedure with the hospital for the baby to be discharged, then we made our way to the couple’s apartment.

At the apartment, we placed the baby in a cloth surrounded by rose petals and baby products we bought on the way from the hospital. I wanted the baby to have some baby products to let it know it was loved..We prepared their place for a puja, then I did a prayer and black tea to Protector Setrap asking the Protector to lead the baby’s mind to a good rebirth…while the parents and grandmother and Kechara friends gently prayed.

The couple did nothing wrong, they loved and cared for their baby for 3 months. I named this baby “Tashi” as the word means “Good Luck”. Although the baby did not live, it was a good thing that the baby came to them and was able to be sent away under the blessings of the Dharma. The baby had a Buddhist funeral I conducted to go to a better place so it was Good Luck for the baby. I reminded the mother that she was kind to take care of the baby for three months inside her womb. She gave the baby love, care, food, warmth and hope. The mother was so sad, but understood.

At around 8.30am, I left their apartment. Bryan and Jean Mei stayed on to help them with the cremation arrangements which happened a few hours later at 11am. A and his wife are good people, and I wanted to sponsor Tashi’s cremation service. I have arranged for part of Tashi’s ashes to be put into the Vajrayogini stupa at Kechara’s Forest Retreat, where he will continue to gain a lot of merits. The other part is now with the couple in a small glass stupa.. I am glad we were able to help Baby Tashi along the way and console the grief-stricken parents. It was their first child. I gave them hugs, prayers and reassurances…

The couple and A‘s mother did prayers for baby Tashi too.

Black tea was done to invoke the Protector to take Tashi to a better place.

After the funeral prayers, baby Tashi was escorted to the funeral parlour. They checked the relevant papers from the hospital and was able to arrange the cremation on the same day…Bryan kindly made all the arrangements. The funeral people were efficient and nice.

  2. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 21, 2012 at 4:02 am

    One day two funerals!!!I don’t want to share how good I am can help to handle this. But I realized something when the person no longer belonging to you then must let it go!

    Die come very suddenly you don’t when. I told myself please appreciated all I have now and showed my respect, sincerity and appreciation to people who really love and care about me.

    That all I can do to my self and also others!

  3. Albert Ratchaga on Jun 21, 2012 at 2:49 am

    Death is so near to us, it can come anytime, regardless of you are old or young, male or female, rich or poor, when death come, everyone are the same, in fact, the more you have, the more suffer you will be at death…

    Dying is not scary, because it is only a process, but where we go after death is scary, because we might go to a very terrible place that make us create more negative karma.

    What most important now is to make preparation for death, being less attach, being less selfish, spending our life doing something beneficial for others is one way, learn up more Dharma is another way to realize the impermanence of life.

    Watch what Rinpoche taught in youtube, a dying process:

  4. Uncle Eddie on Jun 20, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    As from the above scenario, impermanence is of the utmost importance, which help to provide the causes and conditions for practising the Dharma and gaining the results. DEATH is certain, time of death is uncertain, and at the time of death, only dharma can help. Our friends cannot help us – our resources cannot help us – our body cannot help us. Our lifespan is not fixed. There are many causes of death and few for sustaining life, if any. Our body is very fragile. As we have been told and must be remembered, “even at death, you also be prepared and be ready at anytime, whether young or old, be prepared for it at anytime. There is no certainty and that is the key!”

  5. Mei Fong on Jun 19, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    My condolences to both of the families. May Mama Mooi Lan & Baby Tashi have a good rebirth. Thank you Rinpoche and Puja Team for being there.

  6. Doris Tan on Jun 17, 2012 at 1:38 am

    Our loved ones may have passed but their love stays. To be blessed by Rinpoche, that’s really hard to come by. Again, Rinpoche has showed his kindness and did his utmost ensuring the family members are well taken care of. The beautiful news is that we know the deceased will definitely take a good rebirth. Infinity is what Rinpoche holds inside of him when it comes to divinity.

  7. Bengkooi on Jun 13, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I am reminded once again about the fragility of life, and how much we all take life for granted. Back when I met Rinpoche for the first time in 2007, one of the things he said that really struck me deeply was how we always plan for the future, whether we realise it or not. From saving up to get a big house/car, or delaying appointments with friends or family for another day.

    I have recently been talking to some old friends about death, and one of the classic questions is, what would you do if you knew you had only one more day/week/month to live? It’s surprising how much we would all change if we could see into the future.

  8. philyong on Jun 12, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Day after day, we hear news of death. I personally am very afraid when I hear of the news. I look up and ask, when will be my turn? But I don’t get an answer. Scary isn’t it?

    But that doesnt mean I can’t determine what happens after my death. Rinpoche has said many times, our karma is in our own hands. What we do with it determines where we go after our death. So yup, death isn’t really the scary part but what comes after is if we have not been doing work for others or practicing the Dharma.

    Mama Mooi Lan is really fortunate to have met Rinpoche and assisted Him in his works. For that she has gained tremendous merits and I am sure Rinpoche will ensure she has a good rebirth.

  9. Lucas Tan on Jun 5, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    It so sad to see Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi to pass away,but at least they’ve got Rinpoche’s guidance through the journey of the afterlife.I hope they will not be separated from dharma and have a good and swift rebirth.And even though I don’t really know Mama Mooi Lan ,but from the comments below I can feel that Mama Mooi Lan is a wonderful and a compassionate person.T hope that she will be reborn in a condition where she will not feel suffering and be reborn somewhere closer to dharma.And we will miss Mama Mooi Lan but she will always in our hearts.:)

  10. lucy yap on Jun 2, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    The most important time to be grateful are during the difficult time.
    Gratitude is a powerful emotion.Rinpoche has shown us there’s no love,thanks and kindness more genuine.
    Thank you Rinpoche for being there,when they needed you most.My condolences to both families.
    May Rinpoche be well and healthy always.

  11. David Loh on May 29, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Its’ so disheartening and depressing to hear of this person dying and that person did not make it etc etc. Well, it has been said many many times over that life is uncertain and death is!

    Sincere condolences to both families involved. Only assurance is your loved ones has moved on to a better place and better rebirth. What more if our Guru is the one who personally and so compassionately see to the pujas and the arrangements.

    It is said, an elephant never forgets! Our guru as I’ve always regarded as a white elephant (six tusks may be) in one of his previous lives, of course does not forget good and bad deeds accorded to him but still have compassion for those who have harmed or bad mouthed him. Rinpoche SIR, you are truly and inspiration!

  12. Eric Lee KSJC on May 28, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    以前的我总以为只精心策划所有的行动就可以得到自己想要的结果。可是,现在的我,在经历了许多的历练,才能了解人生充满了变数。所以,活在当下是很重要的,以前总以为,要帮助别人,是要等到自己有能力的时候,才来行动,可是看到仁波切可以在自己不舒服的情况下,还是不停的在帮助需要帮助的人,心里觉得很惭愧,所以我对自己承诺,要像仁波切一样,要及时行善,不要等到没有机会是才来后悔,那就太迟了。

  13. Victor Phang on May 28, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Dear Rinpoche:
    Thank you for helping many beings 24/7 regardless their background, some may not even know your name or see your face. You were showing us the truly “blindly” love and care. Buddha’s love is unconditional!

    Everyday we can hear who is passing away, who is giving birth, so as a reminder, we must ask ourselves seriously whether impermanence or tomorrow will arrive first? It is sad to see people pass away but sadder if the person didn’t learn and practice dharma before stop breathing. I really love this quote – if not now, when?

    Thank you very much and take very good rest always.
    With love,
    VP

    May mama mooi LAN n tashi baby have good rebirth.thank you rinpoche n pastors n assistants who show that the world is worth saving

  15. edward on May 25, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    Poor Tashi,she only live in her mother’s stomach for only.I wish that she get a better rebirth.

  16. Yoke Fui on May 25, 2012 at 7:06 am

    We often take loved ones,friends, health, life for granted until we lose them. Then we will scurry around for higher guidance, for answer.

    Rinpoche always teaches us how to treasure each moment by taking the full essence of our present life. Giving love, kindness and care to people we come across while they are around us is more meaningful than regreting or missing them when they are gone.

    Both Mama Mooi Lan and the parents of baby Tashi have been very kind and virtuous people. May the departed loved ones have good rebirths and meet the dharma in their next lives.

  17. JImmy Tan on May 25, 2012 at 12:04 am

    人生无常,当下最重要。很多事是在没准备好的时候来临的。因为我们永远都觉得准备不好。唯有佛法时时刻刻受用

  18. Seng Aun on May 24, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    My heart goes out to the family members of Mama Mooi Lan and Baby Tashi.

    May the blessings of Rinpoche and the Buddhas help you all during this difficult time.

    Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow…….

  19. So Kin Hoe on May 24, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    Rinpoche’s great care and kindness to Mama Mooi Lan and Baby Tashi has shown us the real compassion that no one can deny. My deepest condolences to Mama Mooi Lan’s and Baby Tashi’s families. May both of them have good rebirth and continue to meet with Dharma in future lives.

  20. Cynthia Ng on May 24, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    My deepest condolences to the family of Mama Mooi Lan and Tashi’s parents. May you have a good and swift rebirth! May you be able to meet Dharma, Guru and practice Dharma again and again!

    Rinpoche always be so caring and kindness to everyone! Rinpoche showed express sympathy and solicitude for the 2 family members. Rinpoceh up all night to do prayer for Mama Mooi Lan and Tashi, Rinpoche do rituals for them because Rinpoche concern and want to ensure Mama Mooi Lan and Tashi have a quick rebirth.

    Thank you Rinpoche tirelessly to benefit others.

  21. Lim KSJC on May 23, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Om Mani Peme Hum and deeply condolence to Mama Mooi Lam and Baby Tashi. With Rinpoche blessing may u can take a good rebirth to meet Dharma again especially can re-meet Kechara soon…

    Thanks Rinpoche for caring all Kecharians, and also Jean Mei, Bryan, Pastor Yek Yee, Pastor Susan and also Pastor Ngeow and puja team. U all are so awesome…

  22. Koh Hee Peng on May 23, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Death is certain. Only the timing is uncertain. Life depends on the continuity of our breath, and death deprived it only by a single breath. That is how fragile our life is. That is how impermanent our life is. Everyday when we close our eyes and fall asleep, there is a 50%-50% chance that we might not wake up the next day with our physical body intact.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Kecharians for being compassionate to assist those who are in need of help round the clock.

    Thank you.

  23. Yee Mun on May 23, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    My deepest condolences to both family. May Mama Mooi Lan & baby Tashi have good rebirth, and to meet with dharma at young age in their future.

  24. Low ksjc on May 23, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    My deepest condolences to both families of Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi.Through their merits and love for others, may they have a good rebirth and meet up with good conducive condition to practice Dharma in their future lives.

  25. Su Ming on May 23, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    2 funeral rites within 24 hours. Mama Mooi Lan was 62 years old and Tashi was 3 months old. Nobody can escape from karma. We are our own VICTIM of our own KARMA no matter how you look at it.

    I was with Mama Mooi Lan’s family when Rinpoche did the funeral rites. I spent quite some time with them after Rinpoche left. Her daughters and other relatives took turned to let me know how kind Rinpoche has been to them.

    Mama Yong (another Rinpoche’s old friend) mentioned that what they have done for Rinpoche was so small in 1992 but Rinpoche remembered them till today. She remembered that when Mama Mooi Lan was hospitalised 10 years ago and was critical, Rinpoche flew from Penang specially to see her. Mama Mooi Lan was bedridden for a long time by then but when Rinpoche saw her, Rinpoche hugged her and teased her. Mama Yong said, she never saw Mama Mooi Lan that happy. At that time, Rinpoche also prescribed Dukkar for Mama Mooi Lan to do. Mama Yong said that it saved Mama Mooi Lan life at that time.

    I know this for the fact cause every year, Rinpoche will send many gifts to the Cheras gang and often ask me to keep close in contact with them. Rinpoche always taught us how to always be grateful to people in the past who have helped us. I know Mama Mooi Lan will go to a good rebirth as she in a life has sponsored our Rinpoche, and from there she has collected trememdous merits…just look at Kechara today.

    I am also very grateful that the office of Rinpoche is trained to be on standby at any hours for Rinpoche and especially for these purpose.

  26. David Lai on May 23, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the anecdotes of that faithful night. We are indeed very fortunate to be students of such a compassionate teacher. We have seen from time to time that Rinpoche has put in your all, in your teachings, your blog, your care, your love, your money and everything you give, you give the best.

    Its very hard to find another teacher or person that is so kind, so generous and so skillful. It is so neat that Rinpoche is tech-savvy and have poured your heart and soul into this blog so people from all over the world would peer into Rinpoche’s world and leave feeling blessed with knowledge and inspiration. I do hope the dearly departed takes a good rebirth and I do hope Rinpoche’s kindness would leave an indelible mark on this who would read and see this article.

  27. patsy on May 23, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    My deepest condolence to the families of Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi’s parents. Ii is so comforting to know that Rinpoche is there for them and that Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi will have a good and and conducive rebirth to meet the dharma again.

    Thank you Rinpoche, not only for helping others tirelessly, but for showing us what unconditional love and compassion means.

  28. tsemtulku on May 23, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche, I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for my mum and the family. Your kindness and appearance at the funeral certainly has fulfilled my mum last wish in this life. There are lots of pain and sadness but we are sure that she’s now in a better place with no more pain and illness. I wish you well and may you be healthy and have a long life so more people can learn and benefit from your dharma teaching.(Jojo Wong)

  29. yikming on May 23, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Rinpoche,
    Reading this articles reminds me of my dad’s passing recently, a little difficult subject to talk about. I like to thank you for your kindness and support given during my dad passing. He was very fortunate to be able to meet you in person. He was also very fortunate to have your blessings and guidance at the wake. Also thanks to Pastor Cheah who was with me from the time of the passing in the hospital till the completion of the wake, where he performs the last rites, not to mention the support by the Kechara brothers and sisters,the Puja team, Kechara House, Kechara Bloom and Kechara Care. I like to humbly thank the support received. I feel that with the Dharma teaching , it was much easier to understand death and also how best to provide benefit/merits for my dad or those that have pass on. We often shy away and a taboo topic about death as we do not understand death. Having walk through my dad departure and with Pastor Cheah hands-on guidance further reinforce what we learn helped me a lot in understanding about death.

    Often with news of funerals and people departing reminds us of the impermanence, we come naked and we go naked, we cannot take along any physical things and wealth but we take a long a karma bank account and also our merits that we create here in this lifetime, we should make hay while the sun still shine, so we hope to generate merits by helping and serving others so to continue our journey closer the Guru and Dharma in the next life too and next and next….

    With Folded Hands , thank you Guru.

  30. Girlie on May 23, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    May our Protector always watch over Mama Mooi Lan and keep her safe. Thank you Mama Mooi Lan for all you have done for Rinpoche.

    Baby Tashi: It may have been just a short while that you were with your Mummy but I am sure that she loved you unconditionally. May you take a swift and good rebirth.

    Both Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi were so blessed to have Rinpoche conduct prayers for them on their last journey in this world.

  31. Jay Jae on May 23, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    It is so heart warming to see Rinpoche in action attending to the need of Mama Mooi Lan’s wake and family. Rinpoche really takes care of the people around him regardless. I remembered how Rinpoche once met Mama Mooi Lan in the Ladrang and Rinpoche would keep asking if Mama Mooi Lan and family was alright due to the deep gratitude Rinpoche has for her.

    It is through Rinpoche’s love and prayers I believe both Baby Tashi and parents are able to close an emotional chapter in their life and what more be able to start a spiritual journey for all of them too!

    Thank you Bryan and Jean Mei for seeing this through with Rinpoche. It is so different here in Singapore whereby all baby foetuses who couldn’t make it to live are all stored in a fridge until they meet a quota and will be sent for cremation when they meet the number. We need to educate more people about the awareness of death and care for the departed here very badly.

    Many prayers to Mama Mooi Lan and Baby Tashi from Singapore!

  32. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 23, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Om mani padme hum. Deepest condolences to both Baby Tashi and Mama Mooi Lan’s families. May Baby Tashi and Mama Mooi Lan have a swift rebirth. May they always be connected to the Dharma and Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche, not only for helping others tirelessly, but for showing us and inspiring us to go all the way with Dharma. Rinpoche is always thinking of ways to keep us connected to Dharma not only in this live, but also in our future lives. How blessed we are to be near our center and our Lama.

    In all lives may I NEVER be parted from my perfect Guru.
    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  33. Ethan Chu on May 23, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    Without Mama Mooi Lan, we wouldn’t have met Rinpoche. Thankyou Mama Mooi Lan for supporting Rinpoche. I heard personally from Rinpoche, mama Mooi Lan was always supportive of Rinpoche’s work, never gossip, talk and just serve the Sangha and dharma throughout her life. With her dharma work, she doesn’t need long puja… because her work will help her to take a good rebirth.

    After mama Mooi Lan’s funeral service, late at night another student of Rinpoche called and within minutes Rinpoche and Kechara’s Pastors and some assistants rushed over to bless the soul of the unborn baby Tashi. It was very late at night til early morning, the pastors and assistants were on standby to assist Rinpoche and the family to prepare items for pujas. This is what being a Kecharian is all about, anytime anywhere, we come togethere because our member needs help. Thankyou all for being there.

    Later we also received another member’s uncle passed away. It was a sad gloomy day, but it reaffirmed that besides dharma work; there is nothing we can depend on by the time of death.

  34. william on May 23, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Rinpoche’s compassion is immeasurable as seen here. This is the 2 occasions of the many other occasions Rinpoche has gone all the way for his students and friends.

    I was at the wake of Mama Mooi Lan when Rinpoche was there. Rinpoche did all the rituals and making sure that the mind stream of Mama Mooi Lan is taken cared of. I experienced genuine care from Rinpoche when Rinpoche sat down with the family members and console them. Rinpoche ensured that Mama Mooi Lan is going to a good place because she has done so much good things in her life. One of them is taking care of Rinpoche when Rinpoche first came to Malaysia. I could see relief in the family members after the talk by RInpoche.

    After Rinpoche left, we were talking with Mama Yong and Mama Yong said that the family was really touched and appreciative for Rinpoche coming to the wake. She told us that even though the Cheras Group did so little for Rinpoche during that time, Rinpoche still remembers them and still care for them till today. She also told us that Rinpoche would visit Mama Mooi Lan when she was sick and would hug her while she was on the hospital bed and have not showered. THis is the extent of Rinpoche’s love to his friends and students.

    Thank you RInpoche for being there whenever there is sadness and sufferings.

  35. sweekeong on May 23, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Thank you Mama Mooi Lan for supporting Rinpoche which now I have fortunate enough to meet with Rinpoche and to learn and practice Dharma. Rinpoche, and all Kecharian work tireless to bring hope to people who are still living, how precious is our human lives and no matter how bad from our own perspective we must continue living to the fullest.

  36. Sam on May 23, 2012 at 11:28 am

    My deepest condolences to both Mama Mooi Lan and Baby Tashi family. I am touched by Rinpoche’s unconditioned love for his students. Rinpoche is always there for his students regardless how tired and unwell his condition is. Its comforting to know both of them will take good rebith. I am grateful and lucky to have Rinpoche as my guru and im sure all his students felt the same way too. With folded hand, thank you Rinpoche for everything. I hope Rinpoche live long and stay healthy.

  37. Irene Lim on May 23, 2012 at 11:19 am

    My deepest condolences for both families. I am so glad they have Rinpoche. I am sure both deceased will go for good rebirth and meet with conducive conditions to hear and practise Dharma in their next live and future lives. OM MANI PADME HUM.

  38. su an on May 23, 2012 at 11:06 am

    My deepest condolences to both families, may Mama Mooi Lan and Tashi take a fortunate rebirth and meet with the Dharma and good people. Rinpoche and team works tirelessly to help others’ minds be calm and at ease in times of confusion and sadness. During these times, material things can’t help ease the pain as much as genuine care and concern.

    Gratitude is one of Rinpoche’s many many virtues. Rinpoche never forgets anyone who helps the flourishing of dharma. Neither does he not help those who have harmed him and HE is a shining example of the practice of Equanamity. LOve all, Serve all.

    My condolences to the family of Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi’s parents. May you all be at peace now that your beloved family member will take on a good rebirth. My prayers and thoughts with you all.

  40. Siong Woan on May 23, 2012 at 9:48 am

    2 funerals – one for a kind hearted old lady at 62 and one for tiny little boy who was 6 months away from being born… whilst I feel the lost for their respective families, but more importantly, rejoice for they had the merits of receiving Rinpoche’s love and care during their last moments in this lifetime.

    While we pray for these two souls to take a good rebirth and be able to receive dharma in all their future lives, let us be reminded that our lives are fragile, hence not to waste it.

  41. sarahyap on May 23, 2012 at 8:33 am

    My condolences to both families for the lost of a loved one… but it is comforting to know that they will go to a good place, and take another fortunate rebirth to meet the Dharma once more.

  42. MayOng on May 23, 2012 at 8:10 am

    Rinpoche does not forget anyone who had been kind to him as well as being compassionate to others in time of grief. Although Rinpoche had only half an hour of sleep that evening, Rinpoche still think of others and sacrificed his sleep and health to comfort others for they matter more than his own needs.

    It is comforting to know Rinpoche will be with us always whenever we need him, but we need to be around also to help him out with these work to practice compassion for others and lighten his work.

    Thank you Rinpoche, Jean Mei, Bryan, Pastor Yek Yee and Pastor Susan for being there for Mama Mooi Lan and baby Tashi at moments when they need you most.

  43. Lim Han Nee on May 23, 2012 at 8:05 am

    On both occasions, Rinpoche showed much care and concern for the departure of the dead from this life and their rebirth, performing prayers and pujas and making serkym offerings to Protector Setrap for their good and safe rebirths.

    Mama Mooi Lan was a gentle lady who showed care and kindness to Rinpoche in his earlier years in Malaysia when Rinpoche really needed help. She and her Cheras group were there to give their help quietly and sincerely.Rinpoche has been in contact with her and her family and was able to repay her kindness to him. In this her final depature from this life to take rebirth in another,Rinpoche was there for her to pray for her safe passage to the next life. With much blessinga and prayers,Mama Mooi Lan will surely take rebirth where she will meet with the Dharma and practice it.

    Thank you, Mama Mooi Lan.May you be blessed with Dharma in your new rebirth.

    (Unborn) baby Tashi was only three months in his mother’s womb, when she miscarried him. I am deeply touched by the equally great care and concern that Rinpoche showed to this helpless mother being, who did not have the chance of life. Rinpoche performed puja and prayers for him as well as giving him baby items he would have enjoyed if alive and well.Like gentle kind Mama Mooi Lan, this precious mother being has the blessings and prayers to ensure his good safe rebirth.May he too be reborn into a Dharma-practicing family.

    The road to Kechara Forest Retreat actually is dark but having the trust ,faith of our Guru and the Powerful Dorje Shugden’s protection we have nothing to fear.

    Daily recitation of Dorje Shugden prayers and mantra is very powerful for protection against ferocious spirits or demons. Thank you for this sharing.

    Tibet, on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. Also known as “Roof of the World” a country of immense natural beauty for its towering peaks and many beautiful scared lakes. Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of a power with natural beauty and very holy. Looking at those pictures in the blog tells us all. It is a beautiful turquoise-blue water lake mountain pass surrounded by snow capped mountains, island, pasture, temple, hot springs, wildlife and other natural landscapes. Yamdrok Lake is picturesque scenery, and it is in an organic whole of unique natural scenic. According to local folklore, Yamdrok Lake are considered sacrosanct by the Tibetan people is the transformation of a goddess and invested with special spiritual powers which is closely associated with Guru Rinpoche. Interesting read of the legend of that Dorje Geg Kyi Tso.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with historic stories behind it.

    So powerful, octopus could actually attacked and eat an aggressive shark. One that might surprise us is such an soft spineless octopus could be killed shark. The incredible footage as shown in the video that a octopus successfully attacking and killing an unsuspecting spiny dogfish shark. The octopus use their strength to overpower the shark…amazingly where we do not expected it. Never judge anything by the look or size till the end result. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious belief that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. The major religions in Asia hold a belief in reincarnation, especially Hinduism, Buddhism ,Jainism, and Sikhism accept that the reincarnation of a being depends on the past karma and merit accumulated. Reading this interesting blog, we get to understand better, we could look around in our friends or family members for signs that show us evidence of reincarnation. Interesting to know about these unusual signs of reincarnation as mentioned in this blog.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    That’s great with the discovery of a massive 2,600 year old Buddhist Monastery in Mes Aynak, Afghanistan. Mes Aynak contains Afghanistan’s largest copper deposit, as well as the remains of an ancient settlement with over 400 Buddha statues. This archaeological site is located at the world’s second-largest unexploited copper mine. Sadly because of the Afghanistan an Islamic government in no way interested in Buddhism, had given Afghani archeologists three years to excavate and soon it will be destroyed. Some believe future discoveries at the site could have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and even the history of Buddhism itself. This site is an outstanding and complex archaeological landscape, with astounding quality of preservation. Well even the archaeological evidence points to civilizations in the area flourishing as early as the 3rd century BCE. This is an old post, all these ancient Buddhist site were destroyed by now….Sad. Interesting read. Looking at those beautiful rare pictures of the discoveries tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story…..The “Story of Buddha with Sick Man”. A good example for us to follow nor matter what happened or whom , we are to help each other and have compassion for all even its our enemies. Helping, supporting and taking care of each other is important in our Dharma practice. Having a perfect human body in this life, we have to live wisely and be grateful , learn and practice Dharma as life is short. We only live once, living harmoniously and peaceful will change the environment for us all to work and benefit more people in our spiritual practice. Harmony is the practice of the Sangha. If we have harmony, we have happiness. We don’t need to be perfect…..quoted.

    Buddhism has a long history in Indonesia, is the second oldest religion in Indonesia after Hinduism, which arrived from India around the second century. Reading this post reveal Indonesia has a rich and intricate history intertwined with colonialism and nationalism. The history of Buddhism in Indonesia is closely related to the history of Hinduism. Buddhists make up a small fraction of the population in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. As a number of empires influenced by Indian culture were established around the early 1st century. Many Buddhist temples were built and Buddhist texts were inscribed on the stones tablets. A number of Buddhist historical heritages such as the 8th century Borobudur mandala monument, ancient temples and numerous of statues or inscriptions were found in Indonesia tells us more about the earlier history of Indonesian Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Valencia for this sharing.

    As cars have become one of the most significant aspects in the modern life, that’s a great idea, for all of us to invite Buddha statue in our car for protection and blessing.

    As we believe that laying eyes on a Buddha statues suppose to bring peace, harmony, happiness, blessing and protection. Besides, having Buddha statue in car does not just bring positivity to the owner but it may also benefit others who travel together.

    Thank you for your skillful sharing of dharma.

    Merely seeing Buddha images will definitely leave us an imprint in our mind stream. As advice by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche it is extremely important to go on pilgrimage to visit holy places and see sacred images of the Buddhas. I am fortunate to visit pilgrimage sites with friends , seeing is believing looking at some of the beautiful scared images of Buddha. To meet Rinpoche and practice Dharma on line in this life time, is a fortune for me. Well we have to learn and practice Buddha Dharma now, before its too late, create the causes for this life and future life to come and able to meet Maitreya the next Buddha to come. Interesting read about the next Buddha Maitreya.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this important sharing.

    A rescued dog name Star survived after been buried a life. Sad reading this old post , the poor dog had to undergo all the sufferings, cannot imagine what had the dog done wrong . Been abused, all four limbs tied together and even shot with a pellet gun. Not only that the someone who is so cruel buried that suffering dog in mud. Looking at the picture tells all. It really heartfelt to see that condition.
    Glad that Star was rescued and under gone emergency surgery to have those pellets removed. Miraculously Star survived whose horrific tale of torture on the island of Malta made international headlines. It had caused an uproar in Malta and led to calls for the country to revise its animal cruelty laws. Miracle, the dog who is fighting for her life after being left for dead, has recovered so well from her injuries and trauma . But sadly Star passed away somehow after been adopted to a family.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this

    Colorectal cancer starts in the colon or the rectum also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer. The majority of cancers develop from precancerous polyps but all polys are then cancerous . Consumption of animal products is likely to cause colorectal cancer. Researchers had proven that the frequent consumption is a risk factor for colorectal cancer. Foods such as chicken, red meat, fat-rich foods for example cheese, preserved meats, such as cured ham, hot dogs, bacon salami and so forth. The best choice is go meatless or vegetarian . Taking the meat or whatever so off from our menu list . I have seen how the colorectal cancer cells look like and how those patients suffered deadly . Is good to know all these information and be a vegetarian or meatless before its too late. Saving lives of those animals too is much appreciated.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these deadly cancer.

    A lot of people give a lot of excuses for themselves for not going after their dreams because they are afraid that they will fail. Form Rose story, it really inspire me that if we really put our effort to do it, we can achieved it regardless what’s your age.

    Rose already 87 years old but still doing what she want. I will remember this ” Obstacles are only obstacles when we allow them to be obstacles. Obstacles are in the mind and created by the mind.

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.
    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
