My explanation of my feelings for doing these photo shoots

 

 

 

A few weeks ago, I spontaneously had the idea to make a new postcard series. The last postcard series I used Kecharians as models without me. This time I used Kecharians and me!

I made some phone calls to a few Kecharians, and they mobilized immediately to prepare for the photo shoot the very next day! We worked hard, were exhausted, cracked our heads for ideas… but had such good fun! We worked till the crack of dawn. I conceptualized the shoot, scene, costumes, poses, taglines (coming), location and messages I wanted to convey. I wanted to send messges through these pictures…you can look and see what you get from it… art is subjective.

So far, we have had 2 photoshoots… but there are more yet to come. I love creativity! I love people who constantly think from many different angles and come up with something completely out of the box. I like to present Dharma from a creative angle, and I always have. I am not traditional but I have tried hard to be for decades, but in the end decided to be just myself.

I love and appreciate the creativeness of many artists, actors and singers who work so hard to stay in trend. My favorite is of course Madonna..and I love Andy Warhol’s art. In fact, I’m very much inspired by them to come up with this series of post cards…

We shot over 700 photos in two days at various locations arranged by our team at Kechara!! I must thank the team, they are good and fast!!

Do watch the short video below and tell me what you think. It’s a teaser of our photo shoot that was made by one of my students, Ethan. Ethan is creative for sure! 

Do you want to be the next star in my post card series? hehehe…

Here are a preview of some of the photos we did for you to enjoy. We have alot more of course which will be revealed later…. We will make postcards, posters and other interesting items from the photos with taglines from me….we are working on them now with a multitude of other projects we have…

 

 

 

 

 Who we are is who we are-just accept me!

 

 

 Pick dharma and not samsara!!

 

 

 Yes, I’m Asian and beautiful just like every other human being on this planet.

 

 

 I’m not in Shangri-la anymore!!

 True spiritual practice is a state of mind that can be done anywhere.

 

 

 

 We all deserve love, so start loving others first.

 

 

 I can fly..freedom is in the mind..

 

 

 

 No matter what the obstacles are, never let go of your spirituality..

 

 

 Outer peace comes from inner peace…give peace a chance..

 

 

 Urban enlightenment is not a myth

 

 

 

 Samsara is a repetition of our attachments…just let go.

 

 

 

 I am me and you are you…together we are all beautiful and deserve love..

 

 

 Blessings and love are everywhere…

 I love bringing spirituality to others in ways that have not been done
before. For some they dare not bring it in a way that is not the conventional
method. I like to bring it differently because I like creativity, art,
expression and new ideas. I don’t like to be static or fixed because nothing is
static or fixed. I will continue to bring Dharma in ways unexplored and always
artistic. That is who I am. Tsem Rinpoche

 

Sometimes some people have fixed concepts of how I should be. I think I have the
freedom to be or not to be their concepts depending on the situation. I can be
how I want according to the needs of the situation. I am the best judge of me.
As long my motivation is to benefit others, I should be ok in expressing the
Dharma my way.

 

 

Alot more pictures will be coming soon! We’re producing a coffee table book with these and many more pictures due out October 24, 2012! You will enjoy this book I am sure. I have a great creative team at Kechara and they are bursting to entertain you with modern, urban dharma photos with contemplative taglines to help you reflect deeper…

 


Previously I had done cards also which came out very nice. Take a look:

    Thank you very much for your sharing of your creativity thoughts. I just love all the photos, it is all so pretty and creative. It appeals to me very much. Fun and entertaining videos. Cool pics with cool poses. Nice music. Happy casts and crew. I rejoice for Kechara’s great progress! 🙂

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示。时代迅速的变迁,人类慢慢的进化和进步。传统的传教方式也慢慢被淘汰了。对于现代的新新人类,真得要有一套新思维的佛法来吸引他们。不让末法时代很快就显应。所以仁波切也跟随时代的变迁,把克切拉佛教团体的佛法事业走向时代符合的尖端。这是无可否认的事实,弘扬佛法也要有新思维。

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示

    现在许多年轻的一辈,对于古老传承的佛法教育,总抱着一颗觉得太过“古董”与“死板”的印象,然而佛法确是能被无限发掘的宝藏

    尊贵的上师詹杜固仁波切,因为完全看透了我们这些年轻一辈对于佛法的心态,为了不要我们被娑婆世界里的灯红酒绿吸引,于是总是给予我们最时尚却最纯真的佛法模式,这份善巧与时尚的传法方式,为的就是能吸引我们年轻的一辈,与小孩,能够对于佛法产生浓厚的兴趣与被佛法深深地吸引

    虽然这样的一份善巧,对于莫些传统的朋友是不能接受的,也有些人给予批评也给予我们尊贵的上师压力,然而我们尊贵的上师是如此地坚持,他新颖的传法方式,无论多少批评与攻击,仁波切总是默默地承受着

    为的目的就只有一个,那就是,要使我们全部人及一切有情众生,能够得到佛法教育,在佛法里,我们转化我们的心识,变得更好,帮助更多的人,做很多的善业累积福德资粮,就是这样的目的而已,这一切都是因为仁波切的慈悲,与他大爱着我们每一位

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    I just love all the photos, it is all so pretty and creative. It appeals to me very much. I just love how fun the shoots are and how real it is being kept. Instead of all being super model and fairy tale like. It shows that everyone and anyone can practice the Dharma, we do have to act, look, or behave in a certain manner to be able to do so.

  6. Lucas Roth on Feb 20, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    this is so creative and really funny. I never knew that we can take pictures of dharma so creatively. i wish one day i can be in one of these photo shoots. it is so amazing what Rinpoche can do. we all love you Rinpoche!!!!!!!!!!! please live Long so we can learn the dharma.

  7. Joy on Jan 10, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    Gone are the days where Buddhism is only meant for those goody goody meditation folks that goes to bed by 10pm. In today’s modern age, if you want to talk spirituality, it better be appealing enough that they can relate, and Rinpoche seems to know all about this. Rinpoche basically never stops finding new ways to invoke the creative side in us all while inducing it with Dharma. It may all look like fun, cool and happening… yes it is but it was also a lot of hard work, effort and passion.

    The thing is if we can put up working outside, with those stress, all those dramas, all those snobbish unreasonable bosses and clients, all for a pay cheque, this seems all the more appealing and meaningful and definitely a lot more fulfilling. The motto is simple… bring happiness to others, give them wisdom and let them incorporate it in to their daily lives with altering their reality too much. Sooner or later, if they have the merits, they will alter it themselves 😉

    Buddhist wisdom or we may call it Dharma has always been about improving oneself, what makes it appealing, how to make it appealing to this generation is how we packaged it. There is so many distractions these days, it gets harder and harder to be spiritual today as compared to say 20 years ago. So many are lost without even knowing they are lost. Rinpoche’s mission has always been the same and consistent… benefit others. I guess if we don’t do it, who will? So might as well and have fun while we’re at it!

  8. Venix on Dec 13, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Dear Tshem Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for your sharing of your creativity thoughts. I like it very much and it will be a very good inspiration for me to do better in all my designing works.

    Regards,
    Venix

  9. […] The graphic book will be a great compilation of our latest photoshoot! […]

  10. Jace Chong on Oct 21, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Rinpoche’s ideas is very creative and fun.

    Pictures can tell thousand words, the picture idea of Rinpoche even tells Dharma too.

    I especially like the picture which Rinpoche in the middle, and stopping people from fighting, “Outer peace comes from inner peace…give peace a chance..”

    We can create peace by taking control of our own mind and emotion.

    Thanks Rinpoche. Can’t wait to see all of them!!

  11. Clifford on Oct 21, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche and blog/creative team,

    Love the photos! They are awesomen! My favourite is the dharma protector one.

    Why not posters as well? Would love to hang some over my wall like movie theater posters.

    I heard Tsem Rinpoche fainted whilst on a visit to KFR land. I hope Tsem Rinpoche went for a quick checkup and that everything is alright. I’ve been dedicating my prayers for Tsem Rinpoche’s long life and good health. Please becareful Tsem Rinpoche.

    I rejoice for Kechara great progress!

  12. Henry Ooi on Oct 6, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Fun and entertaining videos. Cool pics with cool poses. Nice music. Happy crew and casts.

  13. Diana Pereyda on Oct 5, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    WOW, just saw. What talented people, with the magic of Rinpoche!

  14. jamiekhoo on Sep 25, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Just as Chenrezig made that wish to be reborn in the darkest, deepest hells, Rinpoche made a prayer and a promise to bring Dharma to people who would otherwise never even meet with spirituality nor think of it as an option in their lives.

    The pictures are huge juxtapositions and contradictions. The heated discussions on Facebook (such as for the “magic levitation trick” photo) are evidence of just how much these images can shake up people’s perceptions – which is precisely what they’re meant to do. Shake us up and out of our little ways of thinking, which says that spirituality must be this or that way…. if not, you’re NOT spiritual.

    I love especially the message in every single one of these photos that spirituality is not about where you are or what you’re doing, but how you’re living every moment of your life and with the people around you.

    Peace xxx

  15. Lin lee on Sep 25, 2012 at 1:40 am

    Different, definitely different……..edgy, yes edgy,…….interesting, for sure…..boring, no way! Hmm…..why does it sound like rinpoche? amazing ……your wonderful ideas to promote dharma and make it so now!

  16. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 19, 2012 at 2:05 am

    So happy to see Rinpoche in his creative element and enjoying himself. The work Rinpoche does always makes an indelible impact on our minds

  17. pavara on Sep 18, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    some of these cards make me laugh these cards are also very well designed i like these cards very much.

  18. Jutika on Sep 18, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche this idea of reaching to people all around the world through this wonderful postcards is such an awesome idea!!!! Some simple pictures + a creative team of people = something that i would send to friends and family in other country’s. Just can’t wait for all of this postcards to be on sale. The name Cool Kecharians is also a very nice name which fits all the scenes like a glove!!!

  19. Louise Lee on Sep 18, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    我们是特别的一群学生, 自然就有特别的教法!

    仁波切是一位特别的上师, 他会想尽五花八门的教法让我们可以在我们的方式下领悟!

    朋友们, 那么好的上师,就在Kechara。 快来这里与我们一起打开不一样的佛法之旅!

  20. Ong Moh Mei on Sep 18, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Even though I was there at the shoot, when I look at the outcome, I still go WOW! It’s easy to look at these shots and admire how good they are. But a lot of thoughts and efforts go into them. Most of us have plenty of great ideas and thoughts but how often do we materialize them into something meaningful and benefiting to others. What amazed me is the thing Rinpoche is willing to do for Dharma. People may comment what a monk should or should not do but the way I see it, all these acts are driven deeply by compassion. It takes a lot of compassion to be able to act, to pose, to talk without preconception, to constantly think of ways to reach out to people and to spread Dharma.

  21. June Tang KHJB on Sep 17, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and KH team for the fantastic videos , creative photos and meaningful message !! Deeper meanings presented in an unconventional way, Rinpoche can always turn everything into something fun and meaningful .We are realy fortunate can meet Rinpoche now ^_^ I like the Bat monk, Pick dharma and not samsara,No matter what the obstacles are, never let go of your spirituality..

  22. DR on Sep 17, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Urban Dharma aka Materialism Spirituality! Haha! That is so Rinpoche! I am so looking forward to seeing the postcards. I am particulary excited to see Abbey Road card.

  23. EricLee KHJB on Sep 17, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    原本的我总以为,若要宣扬佛法,必须就要一板一眼的传,不然传承就失去意义了。这也是延迟了我接受仁波切的最大障碍。创意,是现代不可或缺的宣传方式,先把人吸引进来,在他产生信心后在灌输正确的佛法知识,这样一来就不会吓到人。克切拉,就是一个充满创意的佛教禅休中心,能让人通过不同的管道来认识佛法,生动有趣,有机会的话,希望能有更多的人能有机会来参与,你一定会有意想不到的收获。

  24. sweekeong on Sep 17, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Very beautiful, retro, contemporary and modern. Everyone is having fun and enjoying it. Thanks Rinpoche and everyone there for taking the time and effort in making these meaningful art composition.

  25. Julia Tan on Sep 17, 2012 at 7:40 am

    Only one word I can describe about all these pictures – COOL ! These pictures are cool because the messages that Rinpoche sent to us are just so true! I do not think any else where on earth we can find another Lama so creative and artistic like our Rinpoche. Rinpoche just produced all these interesting pictures in just a few hours time. On the shallow point of view, many people cannot accept the extraordinary spiritual culture that Kechara has but deep down inside, many of them are actually amazed and wanted to be like us but hesitated. I am very exciting to see more of these pictures. Nice to give away to friends especially to those who think they are spiritual but they are not and for those who are spiritual but they never think they are. I enjoyed the pictures very much. Thank you Rinpoche!

  26. Martin on Sep 16, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Rinpoche and the Kechara crew not only bring Dharma to the world but do so in such a different and fun way. Whatever it takes for the message to get through. Come to think of it, I do not know of any other Guru today who goes to this extent. I love all of Rinpoche’s expressions and Moh Mei is absolutely fantastic in all these shots.

    There are many ‘firsts’ in Kechara and this is most definitely one of the funnier and yet effective ones. Rinpoche is extremely skillful in encapsulating the Buddha’s Teachings and presenting them in a way that is easy to receive.

    When it comes to teaching Dharma, this is a game changer.

  27. Wah Ying on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    I like especially:
    *Outer peace comes from inner peace…give peace a chance..
    *I can fly..freedom is in the mind..

    There was a period of my life, I was so so called anti establishment, and “fight” with the almost everyone I meet, from guard of my company, policeman to parking attendant of shopping mall. I wonder why everybody is so wrong and want to fight with me. Later, actually long time after that, recently only I realize actually is me inside do not have peace, I actually fight with myself, so I start the war fire here and there. Peace is from within.

    I like a song singing one day I will fly over the mountain and ocean to be a free soul. I long so much for a free me. Always. And I now understand with less burden on my mind, less restrictions I imposed to myself, less “must be” like this and that, most importantly living it now, then I actually is free. Can enjoy the freedom.

    Yes, Rinpoche, if I have the merits and privilege I would like to help to produce more of this sending out Dharma messages thru modern and popular art form. Cannot be one of the stars then put me as a crew also never mind. Hehe.

  28. mayy on Sep 16, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Oh my my…. Such great shots ! Love them all. Rinpoche and team really moves with present time and these are most people likes to see.
    Thank you all for the few late nights to get these beautiful and wonderful shots.

  29. Siong Woan on Sep 16, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Can’t wait for the post cards to be printed!
    These series are going be so popular because each and everyone of them are thought provoking yet funny… This is the kind of post cards I would like to use for all purposes – thank you, gift, birthday, condolences, I miss you…. You name it..

    Thank you Rinpoche for being ever so creatively in coming out with brilliant ideas..

  30. tsemtulku on Sep 16, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Dharma must have some humour and fun…not dry and dull. It’s the 21st century and we have to move with the times without losing the essence. Tsem Rinpoche

  31. Sean Pang on Sep 16, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The new photos and message are SO COOL!!!!!! I love them!

    When can we do a Shanghai series with Rinpoche?…

    Sean in Shanghai

  32. sarahyap on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:58 am

    I love love love these pictures!!!

    I like how Rinpoche’s facial expressions actually gives us the feeling like we’re practically there!

    And also, some hidden talents discovered!!! Moh Mei looks damn good in the pictures. I love them! Choi Sheem is also really good, I like how she doesn’t appear like a stone in the picture, she’s actually quite natural with photoshoots. Another of my favourite is the the peace within picture… David really looked like he’s ready to fight hehe

  33. abby F on Sep 16, 2012 at 1:12 am

    Rinpoche, thank you for all these super cool photos!
    Spirituality could be cool, fun and meaningful, profound at the same time! Many youngsters out there would love the way Rinpoche teaches Dharma! There is never a dull moment during Rinpoche’s Dharma teaching!

  34. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 16, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Rinpoche is a creative genius, these set of new cards will be so so cool! Thank you for bringing laughter and smiles to us Rinpoche!

  35. patsy on Sep 15, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    I love everyone of them!!!! They are funny yet meaningful….the photos and messages are so captivating. Thank you, Rinpoche, and the amazing team for bringing spirituality in a cool and modern way:)

  36. Low ksjc on Sep 15, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.The post card is indeed creative and the meaning behind each postcard is profound with the perfect tag line.For a layman or a person who could never find the time to read up on dharma ,it is definitely a good way for them to start learning dharma this way.In fact this photos does reflect how attach we are towards the deceiving pleasure in samsara and neglecting our spiritual practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche and the Kechara Team for making it available for everyone to have a glimpse of real life dharma on the lighter side.

  37. Chris Tan on Sep 15, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Hehe… I love all these series. All photos have taken very beautiful and funny. I like the behind the scene video (Chinese version), the song is very match with the video. Hehe… Good job to those who are working hard with all these works. Rejoice..

  38. Echeah on Sep 15, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    These pics are awesome, progressive dharma! I love good photography.

  39. Lily Tan on Sep 15, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Loves the dharma teachings on beautiful creative cards. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing pure dharma teachings through creative manner & also to the team for the hard work in achieving these.

    My favourite ” I am me and you are you…together we are all beautiful and deserve love”

  40. Chandra on Sep 15, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Deeper meanings presented in an unconvential way. It’s really awesome and super cool. Great job to all who worked on the task. Look forward to purchase some.

  41. tfreon on Sep 15, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the fun. I love it, i love them… loves… hahaha.. so fun to see the making of the photos. The team are so professional, and, imagine, it is taking photo from midnite to dawn! Wow.. thank you team for the professionalism.

    I love this quote : I am me and you are you…together we are all beautiful and deserve love..
    Thank you Rinpoche and the team for the cool videos and photos. I LOVE IT!!!!!!

  43. Irene Lim on Sep 15, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    Dharma in modern time…. how cool!

  44. Wei Theng on Sep 15, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    It’s so creative! Yet the message behind is pure Dharma. I’m sure it will touches a lot of people’s heart, especially those may not have chance to learn due to don’t like the traditional way of learning Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche for tirelessly finding all ways to spread Dharma to others.

  45. Lim (KH JB) on Sep 15, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche and team, u all make we learn Dharma so happily. This also can help us to share the Dharma to others so easily.

    Now is the time of modern Dharma, hopefully more and more peoples may connected to Dharma through such interesting past cards…

  46. Han on Sep 15, 2012 at 11:34 am

    BIG BIG thank you to the team, great Job and well done, I like the videos and all the creative pictures!

  47. tenzin llhamo on Sep 15, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Oh my! The pictures are super nice! Rinpoche can always turn everything into something fun and meaningful! I don’t think I can ever learn Dharma another way as this is super interesting and funny in many ways. Rinpoche always think of ways to apply different method to suit different minds and it is NEVER boring! Can’t wait for the new postcards…

  48. Kien Wong on Sep 15, 2012 at 10:47 am

    Thanks to Rinpoche to share this out with us and to the world. It’s a lots of fun from viewing all this Videos and pictures. I laughed even tears in my eyes. Because, i see my guru pose and do what he think is right for the modern peoples into spiritual practice in a new way. Just accept how we are, who we are and what we are doing. Everythings come from Dharma and in a modern way. How great and lucky i am to have a guru like this to learn from.

  49. Ron on Sep 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Very creative shots with meaningful message. I like the Bat monk, defender of the dharma. Cool!
    Thanks, Rinpoche for sharing your teaching graphically.

  50. Seng Aun on Sep 15, 2012 at 7:56 am

    Rinpoche is truly at his best here! A Creative/Art Director, Script-Writer, Actor, Comedian, Model, Dharma Teacher…all in one. These beautiful dharma pictures are not only creative, they are so funny and entertaining. I can never get tired of looking at them over and over again…

    A big thank you and congratulations to Rinpoche and all the lovely people, you have done such a wonderful job!

  51. Sharon Saw on Sep 15, 2012 at 5:54 am

    These postcards are so creative and spectacular!!!! They are so … unlike anything related to Buddhism!! Yet they are pure Dharma! Thank you for sharing… i am sure this range of provocative postcards will appeal to many…. i can’t wait to get my copies 😀

    • Seng Aun on Sep 15, 2012 at 8:18 am

      Dear Sharon, I agree with you 100%

  52. benji on Sep 15, 2012 at 5:41 am

    “hee-hee”, “hee-hee” and “hee-hee” – oh, i enjoyed myself so! The humour! Great organising and superb photography! But “….don’t play-play” – it’s ddeeeep! So meaningful! Now, that’s what i call real SKILL and CLASS! That’s the great wisdom mind and compassion of Rinpoche! Again, “kam-sia che-che”, “rumber nandri” ,”syukriya” Rinpoche and the amazing team!

  53. lewkwanleng on Sep 15, 2012 at 5:36 am

    Wow! These photos are really creative and meaningful too!! Must share!!

  54. Matthew Letten on Sep 15, 2012 at 5:31 am

    And thanks for making me laugh with you postcard designs!

    with metta

  55. Matthew Letten on Sep 15, 2012 at 5:30 am

    Hey Bhante, this is a great song and video that I think will appeal to you, with its positive message for young people

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post which tells us more than that. Feeling the pain of those been slaughtered for human consumption. We should gave up eating meat , have compassion for them who cannot speak for themselves. Looking at those pictures feeling uneasy, the way those chickens , pigs and so forth were killed. We have a lot to answer for those sufferings and killing . We have a choice not to kill and to be vegetarian. Choosing to be a vegetarian is the best as there are many benefits. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Vegetarians also tend to have lower overall cancer rates and lower risk of chronic disease. Hence for health reasons we should go on vegetarian.

    In northern China, where there is a long history of consuming dog meat to ward off the coldness in the winter. They celebrates the summer solstice by throwing a festival that involves the slaughter and consumption of dog meats. Many people love the sophisticated tastes of their dog-meat cuisine. This tradition is slowly fading out as more and more people are aware of the cruelty and not a healthy life consuming it.
    Reading this blog and looking at the pictures , one could see the poor lady activist kneels down , begging the vendor to buy those dogs from being eaten ahead of the annual dog meat. What she did was incredible ,sold her family’s two houses to fund the rescue of thousands of dogs. This amazing woman has spent large amount of money, saving dogs from the Chinese dog meat festival. She has dedicated her life to actually doing something worth doing about it. Attitudes towards dog consumption in China are changing, but some of these traditions have deep roots.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Bigfoot believe may exist somewhere in the wild, but are not recognized by science. Russian president discovers ‘proof’ that fabled creature exists while on short vacation in Kemerovo region. The sighting is understood to have been confirmed by President Putin’s security detachment after they inspected the footprints. Environmental rangers and hunters in remote mountain terrain confirmed it. The Kremlin leader had witnessed’ three Yetis while on a recent helicopter trip to a remote location famous for claimed sightings. Nobody in the world has found the yeti, and it would be good and beneficial to most people. Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams in the wild. As long as there are wild places in America, Bigfoot remains a possibility that, it exist.

    Stephen William Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Well he was best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking did mentioned in an interview that, it is natural to believe God created the universe. He think science has a more compelling explanation than a divine creator. Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science. Well said by him.
    Everything we have in life is all came as a result of research either from ourselves or others. That’s true.

    The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event in which nine Soviet hikers died mysteriously in the northern Ural Mountains in 1959. A group of ski hikers led by Igor Dyatlov just perished in this remote peak. Some of them succumbed to hypothermia, but others were found with grisly injuries. No one yet comes to the conclusion what had exactly happened to them and solved one of history’s greatest adventure .The Dyatlov Pass Incident, came to be known and have inspired countless conspiracy theories, such as Yetis, and even extra-terrestrial contact with the unknown. These men and women were never heard from again. A criminal investigation at the time blamed their deaths on an unknown natural force. Sound interesting. There’s some unknown creatures or aliens maybe that cause their death i do believe., as we are not alone.

    Samaya is a set of Buddhist vows and commitments that are given when one receives empowerment in the Vajrayana Buddhist order. Guru devotion plays an important part in our spiritual practice in Tibetan Buddhism. As explained by Tsem Rinpoche our Guru we must have a good relations and good samaya with the guru. We can never be overstressed on the spiritual path or else our mind will degenerate. Breaking the samaya vows is worse than breaking any other laws. Breaking a samaya results in a heavy bad karma, especially if one disregards or dislikes, the Guru who have gave us the teachings. The Dorje Shugden controversy had cause disharmony and sufferings to many practitioners. For some of them been drifted away causing them to break their samaya then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura, a monumental outdoor bronze statue is one of the most famous icons of Japan. It sits in the grounds of Kotokuin, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. An equal opportunities Buddha, guiding all to the Pure Land, built in the mid 13th century and is the second tallest bronze Buddha in Japan. Looks stunning this statue with historical stories behind it. Love to visit and see for myself this magnificent statue.

    Yes there are many mysterious creatures everywhere this very planet. Its only that we don’t encounter before. Many mysterious creatures such as Owl man , ‘lizard man, Flatwoods monster may exist after-all. Many of them exist in the wild but scientist do not believed it exist by mainstream science. Reading this blog is an eye-opening for me. Just fantastic knowing such creatures do exist. Some of them looks scary to me like the Canvey island monster which had horse-shoe shaped feet with five toes and it had no ‘arms’. Even though its just a carcass seen on the shores of Canvey Island in England. Ferociously looking . Bunyip another creatures found in swamps which has a dog-like face, dark fur, horse-like tail and walrus-like horns. Interesting reading to know that there are some of the mysterious creatures .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Looking at those pictures in this blog says all. Hundred thousands of monks and locals from different monasteries receiving Dorje Shugden initiation from highly attained Lamas. From one picture where thousands of tents were set up outside the monastery hosting the ceremony for the thousands of attendees. Thousands of fortunate practitioners were fortunate to receive initiation of Dorje Shugden from high lamas of the Gelug lineage . We are fortunate to read and watch those updates from Tibet and else where.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these updates.

The protector Dorje Shugden was arose from a lineage of highly attained masters who have been taking rebirth life after life.

    The interest in vegan and vegetarian products is on the rise, especially after consumers become aware of the cruelty involved in producing animal-based foods. Undercover footage released shows slaughterhouse brutal treatment of animals such as pigs , sheep and so forth being kicked, beaten, and thrown into cages before they are slaughtered. The animals should be immediately slaughtered so as to spare them the pain, stress, and anxiety. Secret footage shot inside a slaughterhouse has reignited a row over animal cruelty. Its sad watching this video. As results leading animal protection organisation Animal Aid requested more CCTV cameras to be place in all abattoirs. The public do not want to see animals treated in such a cruel way . To go vegetarian will be the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing high-lighted the sufferings of animals in slaughter house.

    Generally, Buddhist teaching views life and death as a continuum, believing that consciousness continues after death and may be reborn. We’re all going to face death, so we shouldn’t ignore it. Being realistic about our mortality enables us to live a full, meaningful life. Buddhist teachings emphasize the idea that although one’s destiny is always influenced by past karma. That is, our actions in this and previous lives shape the outcome for the next life. Reading this article had me understand further . To learn ,practice Dharma is the best choice I have made. We have our Guru to thank for sharing with us the journey from birth to death. This article gave us a better understanding of what happens to us after we pass away according to Buddhism.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Palden Tenpai Nyima a native of Tibet, he was the 7th Panchen Lama of Tibet. The Panchen Lama is the second highest ranking lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan . Palden Tenpai Nyima did compiled and edited voluminous collection of tantric deity sadhanas or spiritual practices known as Rinjung Lhantab. Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas originally came from the great Tibetan scholar Jetsun Taranatha. In turn, Taranatha’s collection was based on the ancient Sadhanamala collection of works by various Indian authors. It was believed to have been compiled between the 5th and 11th centuries which can be traced back to its Indian roots. Its more suitable for higher practitioners . Jetsun Taranatha was one of the important masters of the Jonang lineage, was of crucial importance for the Shangpa Kagyu tradition who had contributed tremendously in Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David.

    Monk robes offering is the highest offering and the most meritorious of skillful deeds. The act of offering robes to the Sangha, one will be free from the suffering of hungry ghost realm and taking rebirth in the human form with complete perfect physical, attractive, conceivably pleasant and beautiful shape. Merits of offering robes to Sangha is extremely glorious. The Sangha has preserved, propagated and taught the teachings of the Buddha for centuries. As a result, millions have benefitted from their diligent effort and compassion, hence with understanding and gratitude, it is meritorious for us to offer robes to monks.
    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.
    5 years 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

Last Monday, 28th Nov 2022 was 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day. Kechara Penang members gathered together to clean the altar, polish offerings bowls and etc. Sweeping, cleaning and arranging offerings are very important in Buddhism. In fact, it's the first of the preparatory practices as taught in Lamrim. While we clean, it's good to chant mantras or listening to it, such as reciting 'Dulpung Drima Pung' when we are sweeping.
