A few months ago, when a few of my students visited Shar Gaden Monastery in Mundgod, India; my students visited Khensur Ladrang (lama’s household) to bring some supplements and Dharma offerings for Khensur Rinpoche. We knew from a previous visit that Khensur Rinpoche was diabetic, so this time, my students came with some supplements that are good for people with diabetes and to find out about Khensur Rinpoche’s health. It was during this time that I found out that Khensur Rinpoche’s diabetes is not under control… It saddened me a lot, as Khensur Rinpoche is such a beautiful, wise, and great Dharma practitioner, whom has gone through so many tribulations throughout his life. He held his abbot position so superbly benefitting the monastery so much. Now that he is retired, we cannot just ‘forget’ about him. I’ve known Khensur Rinpoche for over 27 years now. Yes over 27 years now. We will be friends for the rest of my life.

I’ve sponsored the medical costs and procedures for hundreds of monks. I was also able to raise funds to build a hospital in Gaden monastery. Taking care of the monks medically has always been a priority for myself.

When I heard that Khensur Rinpoche was not well, I thought… I must do something. I cannot allow such a highly respected and precious Lama, whom have dedicated his whole life to take care hundreds of monks in the monastery during their most difficult time, to fall ill and have his physical body deteriorate pre-maturely. He held the abbot’s position for 7 years successfully and led the Shar Gaden Monastery during it’s most difficult period. He was the first abbot also chosen. So, I told Su Ming, whom is a wonderful and caring person, to bring Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants to Bombay, where proper medical care can be obtained. Khensur Rinpoche, due to his humility, he initially rejected the offer; but I begged Khensur Rinpoche through the phone to allow me to take care of him, so that he may live long and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, and at the same time allow me, the sponsors and Kechara to collect such huge merits for healing such a great Lama as Khensur Rinpoche. Only after I insisted in this way did Khensur Rinpoche allowed us to take him for a medical checkup.

Many years ago, I used to take care my teacher, Khensur Jampa Yeshe in Gaden. Khensur Jampa Yeshe had diabetes too, and it was during that time I met with a very very compassionate doctor, Dr Nadeem Rais. I have kept contact with Dr Nadeem all these years, as I have never forgotten how kind and how well he took care of my teacher. He is a very famous doctor in Bombay, and usually his schedule is packed back to back… however when Su Ming called him, he knew that it was urgent and made some time for us to bring Khensur Rinpoche for a checkup.

So, Su Ming and her wonderful team consisting of Carmen, Karen and Vinnie; took Khensur Rinpoche, Gen Wangyal (Khensur Rinpoche’s close attendant), Gen Nyima (Khensur Rinpoche’s young attendant) and Gen Kunga (English translator) to Bombay. I am very appreciative of Su Ming and her team for doing such a good job taking Khensur Rinpoche and making sure every detail was orderly. They updated me every step of the way. It was a great honor to be able to be part of healing Khensur Rinpoche… I am really glad I had this chance to serve this great Lama. With good health, Khensur Rinpoche will be able to confer precious initiations to the new generation of monks.

Escorting Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende for a Medical Checkup

(Written by Gift Team)

A private audience with an eminent scholar Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende on the afternoon of 11th October 2014 unraveled into a holy mission to Bombay, where we sought treatment for Khensur Rinpoche’s diabetes and a full medical examination.

As Kechara House’s president, Datuk May Phng, Changtso of Tsem Rinpoche Su Ming Chuah, and students Abby Foo, Jace Chong, Vinnie Tan, Sarah Yap, Karen Chong and Carmen Koo along with Gen Wangyal (Khensur Rinpoche’s main attendant) and Gen Jangchup Kunga were in the presence of Khensur Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche made a phone call from USA to speak with Khensur Rinpoche. Two old friends spoke on the phone for at least 30 minutes, and at the end of the conversation, Tsem Rinpoche spoke to us to give some advice on creating the causes and generating the necessary merits for a pure, holy, senior monk to live long. Khensur Rinpoche is very learned, a supreme ritual master and scholar, who dedicated his entire life to propagating, learning, practising, and upholding the Dharma and has much knowledge to pass on to the younger Sangha members to preserve the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa therefore his health and long life is of extreme importance.

From speaking with Khensur Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche learned that Khensur Rinpoche has serious diabetes which tires him very easily. On the spiritual level, we requested Khensur Rinpoche to accept a Tenshug for his long life. In addition, we requested Khensur Rinpoche to kindly allow us to escort him for a medical examination and to treat his diabetes which Khensur Rinpoche agreed to bestow us with such honor.

Rinpoche had told us about a lovely caring doctor in Bombay, whom Rinpoche had previously met whilst in charge of helping Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche with his fight against diabetes. His name is Dr Nadeem Rais, and he had controlled Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche’s diabetes so well that Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche had his life extended by 14 years.

Preparations and thorough arrangements then went underway for a group of 8 to travel to Bombay. Escorting Khensur Rinpoche to Bombay was his attendant Gen. Wangyal, Gen. Kunga, who helped tremendously in being our translator, Gen Nyima, a young monk working at the Menkhang (hospital) of the monastery, as well as Su Ming, Vinnie, Karen and Carmen.

Khensur Rinpoche speaking with Tsem Rinpoche on the phone during our group’s private audience with Khensur Rinpoche. Khensur Rinpoche said that he felt very lucky to be able to speak with Tsem Rinpoche, on the other hand, Tsem Rinpoche told us he was so fortunate to be able to speak to Khensur Rinpoche. Both are great, humble Dharma masters.

Datuk May Phng, President of Kechara House, respectfully requesting Khensur Rinpoche to allow us the opportunity to escort him for a medical checkup in Bombay.

 

DAY 1: 14th OCTOBER 2014

We began our journey at 6 AM from the monastery to Goa so the 5 hour car ride brought us through many states and beautiful views along the way. Ample of rest stops were made so we could stretch and have refreshments as well. We arrived at Goa International Airport (commonly known as Dabolim Airport) around 12 PM, checked in, passed the immigration, had our lunch in the only restaurant at the airport, and boarded our flight which was scheduled to depart for Bombay at 2.50 PM.

Just before boarding our flight from Goa to Bombay, the entire team with Khensur Rinpoche.

Its a full flight to Bombay, and for Gen Nyima (far left), it was his first time on a plane and away from the monastery. Gen Kunga (centre) served as our English translator; and Khensur Rinpoche (right).

In no time, we had arrived in Bombay, and before we knew it, we were at the hotel checking in and preparing dinner for Khensur Rinpoche and the monks. After things were settled, the team went to a nearby grocery store to buy some groceries as well as a gift basket of organic and healthy consumables for Dr Nadeem Rais. We were lucky to find this store close by the hotel – we were told that most of the shops close at 8PM, and 24 hour convenient stores like 7-eleven are unheard of in Bombay.

 

DAY 2: 15th OCTOBER 2014

We arrived at Chowpatty Medical Centre (CMC) for Khensur Rinpoche’s first consultation appointment at 2:00PM. Su Ming and Vinnie had gone earlier to the clinic to brief Dr Nadeem Rais on Khensur Rinpoche’s condition as well as update Dr Nadeem on Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara as Dr Nadeem and Rinpoche have known each other for a long time. On behalf of Rinpoche, Su Ming presented a bouquet of flowers and a basket of organic food products to Dr Nadeem which he appreciated very much. Dr Nadeem assured Su Ming that he will personally take very good care of Khensur Rinpoche and make sure that he is well. What a caring, kind, and compassionate doctor, who is generous with his time and care towards every patient’s well-being.

Dr Nadeem was very happy to hear about Rinpoche’s good works in Malaysia and USA.

Before the consultation with Dr Nadeem, both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal had an initial observation with another doctor at the clinic (we thought it would be good for Gen Wangyal to receive a full medical checkup and treatment as well). They were interviewed on their medical history, diet habits, had their blood and pressure tested, underwent a few other examinations, weight, height and BMI measured as well as an ECG done for them. The nurses, assistants and doctors at CMC were all very professional, helpful and generous with their advice. After listening to Khensur Rinpoche’s daily diet intake, they recommended an alternative diet consisting of skim milk, egg whites, less oil, butter and salt, brown rice, atta flour, fruits, and fresh green salad, whilst eliminating fruits like banana, grape, custard apples, jackfruit, dates, mango, figs, coconut juice, fruit juices as well as sugarcane juice as they are all high in sugar content and unsuitable for diabetic patients. Most importantly, exercising (a 15 minutes walk), is highly recommended after each meal as it metabolises the fat in the body.

At Dr Nadeem’s clinic, which is perpetually filled with patients.

The consultation with Dr Nadeem went well. Dr Nadeem was reassuring and made everyone feel comfortable. Initial reports obtained via the pre-examination showed positive results. Dr Nadeem advised that with diabetes, there are 5 things that we need to look out for and do. This includes:

  1. Food/Diet – consume foods that are low in sugar content and high GI
  2. Exercise – regular exercise should be done to keep one healthy and use excess fat storage
  3. Stress/Worry – it can play a role in affecting one’s diabetes as the body reacts to the stress and worries it undergoes
  4. Treatment – medication needed to control the diabetes level if needed
  5. Checking & Monitoring – of the blood sugar level on a daily basis to ensure that everthing is in check, and determine whether a change in treatment (medication) is needed.

More detailed tests were scheduled for us by Dr Nadeem at other medical facilities, so we set a date for another appointment with Dr Nadeem where we would then be able to go through the complete medical examination results of Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal.

Some preliminary observations from Dr Nadeem from the immediate results of some basic tests done:

  • ECG – both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal had very good results for this, and Dr Nadeem said that both of them have a healthy heart, equivalent to that of a 17 year old teenager.
  • Creatinin Test – this was to test the function of the kidneys, and both of them came back with good clear results.
  • Urine Test – there was no infection that was found through the urine.
  • Blood Pressure – Both had normal readings.

In Dr Nadeem’s consultation room, while Dr Nadeem goes through the initial observation reports of Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal.

Before parting from CMC, Rinpoche called to speak with Dr Nadeem and Khensur Rinpoche, to reassure Khensur Rinpoche that he is having the best treatment, and to thank Dr Nadeem for his unwavering care in treating and helping others. We bought a blood sugar reading machine which would be used everyday to test Khensur Rinpoche’s blood sugar level, as well as a supply of test strips. The lovely assistants taught Gen Nyima and Gen Kunga how to operate the simple machine so that they can keep up with the monitoring of Khensur Rinpoche’s blood sugar levels.

We rushed to our next appointment at 5.30PM, which Dr Nadeem and his team kindly helped to arrange immediately for us on the very same day. It was with Dr. Rumi Jehangir, who is an Ophthalmic Surgeon. Getting a good eye check-up for a diabetic is very important as diabetes degenerates the eyes and can cause bleeding when it is in its advanced stages. This was also necessary, so that we could make them new glasses which can help very much in the monastery. Khensur Rinpoche reads and studies a lot of sutra texts as he gives many teachings, therefore, a good pair of glasses will help him very much. At Dr Rumi’s, Khensur Rinpoche was shown to have a little cataract in his left eye, and will have to have continuous check up on a yearly basis. The doctor recommended that a surgery to remove it is not necessary at the moment, but we will have to monitor it well. Khensur Rinpoche has operated the cataract on his right eye previously. With the current pair of glasses that he had on, Khensur Rinpoche’s vision was near-perfect.

Gen Wangyal was diagnosed to have white spots on his cornea, which Gen-la claimed has been there for 6 years. He has had an operation done on his eyes 3 years ago. Results from examination showed that Gen Wangyal is both near and far sighted therefore we decided to get him a bi-focal spectacle which would be easy and convenient for him. Dr Rumi recommended to us an optometrist not far from the hotel to get their prescribed spectacles done.

Dr Rumi checking Khensur Rinpoche’s eyes. Khensur Rinpoche’s eyesight was really good as he could read the smallest font alphabets on the board in front of him.

DAY 3: 16th OCTOBER 2014

Gen Nyima is always seen support and helping Khensur Rinpoche. Serving senior lamas creates tremendous merits for the individual.

Gen Wangyal waiting for his turn to take the 2D Echo-cardiogram and then the stress test. Another patient, who was in line, seeking blessings and paying her utmost respect to a pure and holy monk. Such deep seeded spirituality within the Indian culture.

We had an 11AM appointment at NM Medical Centre for more medical tests. The monks had to fast two hours before the tests. The tests that were done included:

  1. Chest X-Ray
  2. Sonography, like ultrasound, to check the internal organs of the body. It will give a better understanding of the current health of the liver, pancreas, and kidney.
  3. 2D Echocardiogram and Stress Test – to see the condition and health of the heart

This was completed in less than 2 hours. Results from tests showed that both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal are doing well for their ages. Their heart functions are healthy and good, comparable to many younger people. The effects of high blood pressure can be seen for Gen Wangyal, though it is not worrying as he continues to take his medication. It was recommended that salt intake is to be reduced. When we arrived at NM Medical Centre, Su Ming and Karen already had all the paperwork done so that waiting time for Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal would be less

Khensur Rinpoche undergoing the 2D Echo-cardiogram. After Khensur Rinpoche had his Echo-cardiogram, Gen Wangyal did the same scan on his heart done. Gen Wangyal has high blood pressure but medication kept the condition under good control.

Having lunch at a nearby vegetarian restaurant. There is no problems or difficulty at all in finding vegetarian cuisine in India, as a vegetarian diet is very common there.

After lunch, we proceeded to the Dentist, which was also recommended by Dr. Nadeem, who had his clinic schedule in the appointment for us. We met Dr. Ravindra at his clinic, who did initial observations on Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal. Khensur Rinpoche had an x-ray on this teeth done at the clinic whilst Gen Wangyal had to do it at another location as he required a much more comprehensive scan as most of his teeth are broken. We had made another appointment to visit Dr. Ravi, as he would then have the x-ray films to determine what treatment they needed.

Towards the evening, we went to Baliwalla & Homi Optometrists to make prescriptive glasses; 2 pairs of bi-focal glasses with transition lens for Khensur Rinpoche and a pair for Gen Wangyal. We were happy to sponsor everything.

DAY 4: 17th OCTOBER 2014

By now, most of the preliminary tests were done so we were going around to collect the medical reports for our evening appointment with Dr Nadeem Rais. After breakfast, Khensur Rinpoche went for a morning stroll together with Karen and Vinnie along the marine drive. It was lovely, and very good exercise for Khensur Rinpoche as diabetes patients need to do at least 15minute walk after each of their meals to help metabolize the intake of food.

Consultation with Dr Nadeem went well, as both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal were overall both deemed to be very healthy for their ages. After going through the results of all reports, Dr Nadeem confirmed that Khensur Rinpoche has class 2 diabetes. However, Khensur Rinpoche has been on medication, and that has controlled his condition fairly well. Some new medications were given to replace his existing one.

This was how the monks stored their medication, in a simple white plastic bag. We helped them reorganize it and got them pill boxes.

At Dr Nadeem Rais’s clinic for our 2nd consultation after we collected the full set of medical reports. Khensur Rinpoche had his medications changed to suit his condition of Class 2 Diabetes.

When we discovered the gym… Khensur Rinpoche is very sporting

 

DAY 5: 18th OCTOBER 2014

The weekend allowed us to take the monks shopping to get the essentials we needed for Khensur Rinpoche’s change in diet. We had gone shopping for shoes and sandals, groceries including rock salt, multigrain atta flour, green tea, brown rice, diabetic honey, and oats to name a few, electronics such as a juicer and rice cooker. The monks do not really get a chance to leave the monastery grounds as they, especially Khensur Rinpoche, spend most of their time teaching the many scholars and monks and serving the monastery in whatever ways they are able to. It was a joy to be able to take them shopping.

Trying on new shoes. It is important to use proper footwear especially for those with diabetes. The shoes will help them as they walk around the large compound of the monastery, and will provide more grip and safety.

Purchasing atta multigrain flour, rock salt, brown rice and other commodities suitable for diabetic patients.

Purchasing a few months supply of medication for Khensur Rinpoche

Getting all the necessary supplies needed from the Pharmacy. They have many things, and is very convenient to purchase prescribed medication here.

Choosing stationaries and toys for the young monks of Khensur Ladrang

Our purchase from Bombay as offerings to Khensur Rinpoche, Khensur Ladrang, and other monks of Shar Gaden monastery!

 

DAY 6: 19th OCTOBER 2014

We made a trip to Kanheri Caves, a Buddhist Pilgrimage site. The many caves found in this site were once used for meditation by many Bodhisattvas, and it was also believed that Lord Buddha had delivered a discourse at one of the sites. With tremendous blessings and such holy energy pervading, Khensur Rinpoche led a Lama Chopa puja in one of the caves, dedicating it to the long life and excellent health of Tsem Rinpoche and Kecharians. It was strenuous as the paths were unsteady and some required a steep climb but it was a blessed day nonetheless which everyone enjoyed very much.

If you go to Bombay, do make a trip here.

Khensur Rinpoche is still very happy as the destination was to a holy temple.

DAY 7 & 8: 20th & 21st OCTOBER 2014

In these two days before departing Bombay, we made our second trip to the dentist where Khensur Rinpoche got some cavities cleaned, and filling for a decay tooth. There are more extensive treatments needed for both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal, which will continue in Hubli when time permits. Gen Wangyal has all but four of his teeth broken thus they need to be extracted and have dentures made, while Khensur Rinpoche requires root canal. We had also collected the prescriptive glasses which took a few days for the optometrist to make.

Back at the dentist again for filling and removal of decay

What we consider as basic medical and dental care, is precious for sanghas like Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal who spend their entire lives in the monastic community teaching, preserving the lineage, holding their vows, and studying. It is evident that they do not focus on their own needs and wants, as they focus more on the needs of others, therefore it was an honor and privilege for us to be granted a precious opportunity to gain merits in serving pure and holy monks. Back in the monastery, we made sure that we had Khensur Rinpoche’s Ladrang in order and arranged to suit Khensur Rinpoche’s dietary needs.

Buying more groceries and essentials from Hubli for Khensur Rinpoche and the Ladrang

Gen Kunga translating notes into Tibetan to put on the walls

Organizing Khensur Rinpoche’s daily medication into a pill box with Tibetan translation

Toys and Puzzles for Khensur Rinpoche’s students

Giving out some much needed stationaries to his students

We are truly grateful to be able to be part of this fortunate holy pilgrimage, not only were we able to visit holy places, but we were able to directly serve a holy lama like Khensur Rinpoche, whom have brought so much goodness to so many people’s lives and will continue to do so with a healthier body. We will continuously take care of Khensur Rinpoche from this point forward. Up to date, Tsem Rinpoche has sponsored for the medical fees and everything else. If there is anyone that wish to contribute to the medical fund for Khensur Rinpoche, please kindly contact Chuah Su Ming or Carmen Koo for more details.

With sincere thanks and gratitude,
Gift Team of Kechara House

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    Be blessed with these rare videos featuring explanation and advice about Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in his own voice. The teaching was requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, one of the earliest masters who taught Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    This is a great teaching. The opportunity to serve such high lamas are rare and once we get the opportunity, it generates so much merits and the causes created to be able to serve a high Lama is very meritorious.

    The compassion and love of others exhibited by these great Lamas should serve as reminders to us who have so much more resources at hand to help others.

    I am truly humbled and this opened up another part of my mind in generating compassion, the pure motivation to help others and the merits generated where a high Lama’s life is long, the Dharma will flourish further and further.

    Thank you!!

    Sangha is the best representation of Buddha and Dharma. They are so precious and having them around indicate the growth of Dharma. Serving them is like serving all the Buddhas and how wonderful it is. I sincerely rejoice and I wish I may be able to do the same in future. To take care of Sangha, taking care of each others and encourage the growth of Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche and all Kecharians who all involved and the sponsors too.

    I am glad to see this comment by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ on Tsem Rinpoche’s YouTube Chanel. After all this time more and more people who bother to look beyond hearsay and prejudice are beginning to see the goodness of Dorje Shugdenand benefit from it.

    It is heart warming and such a honour to serve and take care of monks who dedicate their entire lives for the benefit of others. A joy to read this article.

    The amount of effort, time and resource that Rinpoche spends to take care of senior dharma teachers and monks is a consistent feature of Rinpoche’s life and actions. This care and enthusiasm for the dharma pervades every other aspect of Rinpoche’s life too.

  18. Stella Cheang on Dec 8, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche, for sharing this post that shows us great work by the team, who worked behind the scene tirelessly, representing the good name of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to help Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende get medical checkup. The thoughtfulness and level of details carried out by the team was exemplary. The team also demonstrated meticulous and excellence work not only in taking care of Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants for eight days, but also in sharing the good works by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in Malaysia and USA. This is a good example for us to learn up in serving others.

  19. Justin Cheah on Dec 7, 2016 at 1:01 am

    This is very heart warming. Rinpoche has always been very caring towards everyone that Rinpoche knows. Rinpoche’s genuine care towards someone who is in need surpasses even their own family member would do. Everyone of Rinpoche’s students will be able to attest to that. Really heart warming to know how Rinpoche helped Khensur Rinpoche and Rinpoche never forget the kindness of others. Something normal people like us will have a lot to learn from. Thank you Rinpoche for showing the way of kindness and of course to the Care team for doing such a great job in facilitating this!

  20. Lhanzin on Dec 6, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Ji su yi rang! I rejoice in this great kindness and generosity of Kyapche Tsem Rinpoche
    and his wonderful disciple.May your blessings and presence be with us for a very long time!

  21. Sofi on Dec 5, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    What a beautiful story of Rinpoche’s care and respect for the monks in the monastries in India and carried through by Datuk May, his Changtso, Su Ming & her team. Rinpoche had always taught how precious and selfless the Sangha is in offering their whole lives dedicated to serving the Dharma and it is only right that we in turn serve and care for them well. From the daily accounts of activities, the details as Su Ming and her team arranged for Khensur Rinpoche and Gen. Wangyal’s medical and health check procedures are so wonderfully thoughtful. It really shows how well Rinpoche had taught them and for them to care deeply to represent Rinpoche well. It is as though Rinpoche was there taking care of Khensur Jampa Yeshe once again, I would imagine.

    Rinpoche has always been kind and generous to care and help the Sangha in India and people in need. His Guru Devotion is known by all in the monasteries to be impeccable and he had always taught us to be respectful, not only to the Sangha but to our parents, our families, friends, all people we meet and even our enemies. So it is with great shock when I read those really ugly and vulgar accusations against Rinpoche just because he maintains his practise of Protector Dorje Shugden, as given by his Root Guru, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. What amazed me was that most were coming from people who doesn’t even know him or have read much of his good deeds. Strangers who happen to like the image that H.H. 14th Dalai Lama presented, the face of love and compassion, the Nobel Peace Prize winner. Strangers who then decided to attack Shugden Lamas, even though they had no inkling of the whole issue. Strangers who does not know that one of the five Heinous crimes that brings one straight to the lower realms is “creating Schism amongst Sangha”. Attacks on Shugden Lamas is creating schism as it is distinguishing a false difference between the Lamas due to their practices. May the Dalai Lama swiftly manifest his true nature of compassion to stop all these negative karma being created daily. Please have the dialogue with Shugden practitioners and reunite all practitioners of the Lama Tsongkapa lineage, the Gelugpas.

    May Rinpoche and all the Lamas live long in good health to continue propitiating the precious lineage of Lama Tsongkapa with purity that brings blessings of all the Lineage Gurus. _()_

  22. Fong on Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 pm

    Thank you for the detailed itinerary and sharing with us on how much care and attention that Rinpoche showers on his teachers. Many of us take for granted all the basic medicare care and amenities that we get everyday that we become insensitive to the needs of others.

    This serves as a reminder to us that we do need to be more mindful of others which is the Buddhist way.

    Thank you, again for showing us how to really treasure the dharma and dharma teachers.

  23. Choong on Dec 5, 2016 at 10:54 am

    If you treasure them, take good care of them. If you treasure the Dharma, take good care of the Dharma and share it.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    NOTABLE COMMENT FROM TSEM RINPOCHE

    For me, I have received teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and I still have to respect him as one of my lamas. It might be different for some of you who have not. But my approach must be respectful. Even if I didn’t have teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama, would still approach him in a respectful manner. The advice against Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness is hurting many people in fact millions. It’s creating discord, segregation and pain. Everything the Dalai Lama teaches is about compassion, tolerance and reconciliation and the Shugden practitioners deserve that too. I therefore, respectfully prostrating to the ground would ask H.H. the Dalai Lama to please send his ministers to talk to the leaders of the Shugden group and resolve this issue. I say all this with deepest respects. As a part Tibetan, I also wish His Holiness the best. Long live the Dalai lama. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Such high beings, such high acts of generosity and love for one’s esteemed guru and sangha (our 3 jewels). Possessor of such high grace and such great qualities. Without you our worlds would be dark forever. May Rinpoche might and grace and power always increase.

  32. tsemtulku on Jan 28, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

    I’m touched, as always. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and all your teachings>

  34. Su Ming on Jan 22, 2015 at 12:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this opportunity to assist Kensur Rinpoche in whatever way we can so that this illustrious master is able to teach and produce many more learned scholars in the future to spread Buddhism in all 10 direction.

    This is not the first time Rinpoche has done this ever since I joined Kechara/Ladrang 6 years ago. Rinpoche has been consistently been finding ways to look after masters of Gaden/Drepung/Sera such as the late Lati Rinpoche/Kensur Jampa Yeshe, Kensur Kunchok Tserin, Geshe Wangchen of Drepung, Geshe Puntshok and etc. The list just goes on.

    I have heard so many stories not only from Rinpoche himself but from the monks in Gaden on how Rinpoche took such good care / control of Kensur Jampa Yeshe sugar level. Even monks in Pukhang and Dokhang Khamtsen used to tell me stories on how detail Rinpoche was with Kensur Jampa Yeshe’s health. Which myself and the team was fortunate to learn from so we can take over and do the same for all the older monks with health issues.

    A warm and touching sharing on the updates by the Gift Team. To be able to serve Khensur Rinpoche, Gen Wangyal and entourage is indeed a blessed privilege.
    Thanks to our guru Tsem Rinpoche who is always teaching us to be kind and generous through his actions and teachings.
    May Khensur Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have good health and strong body to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  36. Grace Leong on Jan 21, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    This is such a heart warming sharing. Tsem Rinpoche would always remind us how precious the Sangha is and that we have to always respect and look out for them. Needless to say, Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende is not any ordinary sangha but a highly revered Rinpoche who was instrumental in many major events of Ganden Monastery. During very challenging times in the history of this monastery he was there to champion many causes and helped looked after the welfare of the sangha members. All that he has done has helped to keep the purity of the Lama Tsongkhapa teachings which we here in Kechara has the greatest merits to practice! We have to be very grateful to them who have sacrificed and consistently held their vows to ensure the lineage and the teachings continue to spread.
    Su Ming, Karen, Carmen and Vinnie are great examples of students of Tsem Rinpoche who listens attentively to teachings and instructions and carries them out whole heartedly. They are such wonderful people; caring, kind, generous, smart, hardworking and fun too! They are very inspiring !

  37. Aw Wei Ling on Jan 21, 2015 at 8:09 am

    This is a very useful teaching on how to deal with our negative emotion especially anger. Anger causes a lot of problem to us. To know if we have anger is to examine if we have patience. When we are impatience, it is a sign of anger. I never thought these two emotions are related but it actually make sense.

    When we are impatience, we cannot tolerate other people’s fault. Then we get angry with the things they do or say. Our impatience could be caused by our arrogance of thinking we are better. If we really are better, we should be patience to pass and share the knowledge with others. There might be people who have the attitude problem, but this is not something we can change. What we can change is how we feel and perceive.

    Ram is a Nepalese staff working in Tsem Ladrang for many years. He is hardworking, friendly and polite. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche always sees Ram as part of the big family.

    In mid-2016, Ram’s wife in Nepal who was pregnant for 7 months suddenly developed complications, she had to go for operation due to dislocation of the baby in the womb. Ram’s wife and baby were very weak and in dangerous condition, the doctor had no choice but to operate and take out the baby. The doctor …even said EITHER the wife or the baby would survive.

    Ram was very worried and informed Tsem Rinpoche immediately, Rinpoche’s divination showed that both the wife and the baby would survive, and immediately instructed pujas to be done and candles to be lit for both the wife and the baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s mantra strongly to pray for protection for his wife and baby.

    Founded in 1790, Beijing (Peking) Opera has been the main form of Chinese entertainment for over 200 years. It all started when the Four Great Anhui Troupes went to Beijing to perform for the Imperial Court, with the royal families present. Although in this time and age, this beautiful national art form has to compete with blockbuster films, TV drama series, home-made internet films, MTV music videos etc …many, many people in Beijing and most parts of China still appreciate it.

    The Chinese government encourages the younger generation to participate in Beijing Opera, and like Wang Tao Yang (aka “Wonder Kid of Peking Opera”) many of the younger kids seem to have a natural ability for it.

    Manjushri, whose name means ‘Gentle Glory’ or ‘Sweet Splendor’ in Sanskrit; ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ (文殊师利)in Chinese; ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japanese; ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korean; ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibetan) is one of the most important Bodhisattvas in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

    Manjushri is also known as ‘Manjugosha’ (the Gentle-Voiced One); ‘manju’ refers to how the continuum of his life has been rendered ‘gentle’ by his grasp of transcendental wisdom, and ‘gosha’ refers to his perfect ability to communicate the Dharma verbally and in written form, in which he destroys illusions, delusions and ignorance that keep all sentient beings within samsara.

    Tai chi is a mind-body practice that involves a series of slow, flowing exercises that combine movement, meditation, and rhythmic breathing. Although it was initially developed as a martial art, it’s commonly practiced as a form of “moving meditation.” According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, tai chi’s movements can help stimulate the flow of vital energy (also known as “chi”) and, in turn, promote healing from a variety of health conditions.

    Many practitioners of tai chi use this technique to enhance physical and mental health, as well as to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and strength. In addition, tai chi is said to boost mood, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve heart health.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the importance of making offering to Buddha. Many would not put priority on making offering on the altar as preference is always spending the money for ourselves. But we didn’t realise that making offering is directly helping us in our spiritual path and we would be able to generate merits through this process. We should always remind ourselves not to be stingy in making offering but be very generous instead.

    A revelational read about the ugly politics of Potala. Contrary to the general belief of the untouchable holy status of the Dalai Lamas; they were frail and disposable, especially during their younger years. Based on records, it seemed that during those centuries, it was obvious that if the Dalai Lamas succumbed to the control of the upper few like the Regent and the serf lords, he would live long and prosper. If he had a mind of his own or had ideas to reform, then he would be eliminated. Imagine, if the holiest of the holy had not to exchange his free will for survivor and acceptance by the upper few, leave alone the life of others and the commoners. Thank you for this article.

    Anger can cause many problems to us. It is scary to know sometimes we don’t even feel we are an angry person. We wonder why people are walking away from us, the truth is no one wants to be near us because we are angersome, people cannot get along well with us.

    We have to always observe our mind, don’t let our anger eats us up. We are always kind to people we love but we cannot give the same kindness to people who are not related to us or who we don’t like. In order to cultivate kindness, we have to learn to be kind to everyone, regardless if they are kind to us or related to us.

    Buddhist teachings arrived in the country known today as Indonesia in the 2nd Century CE. Buddhism is the second oldest religion after Hinduism in this region. For the most part, Hinduism and Buddhism co-existed peacefully in Indonesia. Before their arrival, the people in this region believed in animism, the belief in the supernatural power of Mother Nature. They regarded trees and stones as sacred objects and used these for worship to connect with their higher power.

    The Buddhist influence was first introduced by the traders and missionaries from Eastern India who travelled to this region via the ancient maritime Silk Road or Silk Route, a route that spanned from China to the Mediteranian Sea and was central to trading and cultural interaction. Over the centuries, for 2,000 years, the traders and missionaries who travelled along the Silk Road played a strategic role in the dissemination of religious beliefs across Eurasia. The traders often built shrines and temples of their own faith during their travels in order to worship their own gods.

    One of the many fascinating and historical festivals in Malaysia is the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. This festival takes place from the first to ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.

    Throughout this nine-day festival, adherents observe a strict vegetarian diet, meditate, study scriptures, interact with fellow vegetarians, and make donations to the temples to show their devotion to the gods. During this festival, many hawkers and vendors set up stalls around the town to sell food and prayer supplies. Many devotees also take this opportunity to donate to various rituals and ceremonies in order to maintain luck, to dispel bad luck, and to show appreciation for the good luck they received in the previous year.

    Among the many countries around the world, Sri Lanka is known for its rich Buddhist culture and heritage. It is where the the ancient city of Polonnaruwa is located, a place where kings ruled Sri Lanka’s central plains more than 1,000 years ago. It was a thriving commercial and religious city from the 11th to the 13th centuries, and the ancient city has many precious relics and Buddha statues.

In 1982, Duran Duran filmed their ‘Save a Prayer’ music video amongst the beautiful scenery there.

    Brief Garden is a hidden paradise in Kalawila Village, located approximately 10 km (6.2 mi) from the resort town of Bentota in Sri Lanka. The garden and the house on the estate was the residence of the famous architect and landscape designer, Bevis William Frederick Bawa (Bevis Bawa) (1909 – 1992). Bevis Bawa was also a military officer by profession, and he served as the personal secretary (Aide-de-camp) to four Governors of Ceylon (the present day Sri Lanka) during the British colonial era.

    Brief Garden is a delight for those who love nature. When visitors walk into the garden, they will be able to enjoy the jungle feel of the garden and its unique sculptures. The house on the estate is cosy and comfortable. Bevis Bawa built the premise with care and the intention to make it his retirement home.

    Malaysian weddings are diverse, unique and colourful affairs, as is to be expected in a country that is a melting pot of cultures and faiths. Generally speaking, wedding customs in Malaysia are determined based on the couple’s race, religion or both. As a large percentage of Malaysians are Malays, and given that Malaysia’s constitution provides that all Malays are to be Muslims, Malay weddings are typically steeped in Malay traditions and solemnised according to the tenets of Islam.

    How we feel should not be affected by what others say about us. Everyone has a different expectation and perception of things. Their comments on us are purely based on their perception, it may be true and it may not be true.

    Our motivation might be misunderstood, but it should not matter. At the end of the day, we create our own karma. If we react to negative comments with negative emotion and behaviours, we are the one who lose out. We should always remember what the 8 verses of mind transformation say, give the victory to others.

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
