    KH study groups and centres are the manifestation of Rinpoche’s kindness so that those living remote from our mother centre will have equal opportunity to connect with him and the organisation and a place to engage in practice.
    The success of all the study groups depend not only on its core members and sponsors, but also the blessings of our Lama and kind support from our hardworking KH Liaisons & members who collectively provide the link to our mother centre by going there regularly to share.

    Kechara’s presence is felt everywhere!
    Indeed more and more replicas of Kechara House are mushrooming everywhere in Malaysia. It reminds me of how Kechara House first started back when I first joined. We had so little to work with then and everyone spent their time and put in effort to making things happen for the group. Of course there were shortage of resources but we made do with the things that we had at hand.
    These pictures really remind me of how things were back then. I do believe the Ipoh study group are going through the same situation. I rejoice for the efforts which Mr Ngeow and other from the commitee members who go there to help them every week and establish a good connection with the mother temple here.
    I sincerely pray that the Ipoh Study group will grow further to be a beneficial place for everyone to congregate and learn the Dharma.

    Dr Chong and Dr Ming who are devoted students of Tsem Rinpoche were working in KL Hospital. Dr. Ming was the ex treasurer of Kechara Organization. She was a very active member in the centre and also is one of the teachers in the kids class. When her husband Dr. Chong was offered a job in Ipoh they have to move to Ipoh. And that was when they decide to organize and start a centre for the people in Ipoh. Ipoh study group was born with Mr. Ngeow going down to Ipoh fortnightly, to give Dharma talk and assisted by Dr.Chong and Wai Meng from KL. Jace and Miss Han, Raymond Chu, Eric Chong travel fortnightly to Ipoh to teach mandala offering and Protector Setrap puja.

    It was so happy to see a group of like minded friends get together and sharing dharma.Setrap practice benefited many Kecharian and we all know Setrap will help us if we practice sincerely.
    I am one of them.
    Jace, Raymond, Raymond’s lovely wife and kids, Dino, Mr Ngeow, Yee Mun ,they shared whatever they know about setrap practice to benefit others.Jace is a lovely lady,she is hardworking and whenever i meet her in KH ,she is always happy and helpful.I knew she have so much faith with Setrap.She is the asistant umze of Chinese setrap group.During the on going setrap retreat,i joined the chinese setrap puja group on the 3rd day,she was there early to do the set up and get the offering ready.
    She even do hundreds of prostration early in the morning daily during the retreat.
    Study group is a way to make Dharma grow within us.Just like what Rinpoche said,WHEN WE PRACTICE DHARMA TOGETHER ,WE GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER WELL.WE KNOW WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE HAVE PROBLEM,WE LEARN TO CARE ,TO LOVE AND PRAY TO SETRAP TO HELP EVERYONE.
    Slowly we learn how to be selfless and abondon selfishness.

    Many more people in Malaysia is getting Dharma and getting the benefits. Dharma is not something separate from your worldly life; it can be and is intertwined in life. It is basically learning how to cope, solve and rise about your sufferings and problems. Some people may like studying, some chanting, some organizing events, some paint, some dance and some sing. It is all Dharma when we do it from a motivation that is about others! Yes perhaps in the beginning it is about us, solve our problem Setrap, help me Setrap… but after you got what you wanted, it is time to give back and share the benefit you got with others. This is what’s happening in Ipoh, JB and Melaka. This means more people can get a chance to change their lives for the better. Kudos to those like Mr. Ngeow and the education team for spearheading the vision of spreading Dharma through the 10 directions. And one day soon, we will have KWPC http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/ where we can all come together to do practice. So if you want be part of this history in the making and be part of a legacy you can be proud of, you start now by doing whatever you can best!

    Kechara House is growing in Malaysia, Ipoh is one of its satelitte centers and I have been told that its members have a good dedication to the Dharma.
    When someone or a group of people has dedication, sincerity and correct motivation in the practice of Dharma, Dharmapala Setrap can only help. Why> because his help carries meaning and purpose.
    I don’t think we need a Dharma protector to fuel our delusions and get further into our attachements, desires and aversions, I think we are doing a very good job at this by ourselves, we are kind of experts at it. But when it comes to practicing the Dharma, a Dharma protector is definitely of great assistance, as the road may not always be without turbulences.

  7. chia on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:25 am

    Study group play important role for dharma to flourish in one place. I am Happy to see the sincerity of group the people at Ipoh has put their effect together make this place happen provide the chapel for more people at Ipoh come and learning dharma.
    Is nice our dharma teacher Mr. Ngoew regularly went up to Ipoh every month to share dharma knowledge with the new members. Chinese Setrap group members lead by Ms Han, Jace and Raymond Chu family also went together to support Ipoh Study Group first Chinese Setrap pujas . Jace Chong is very kind showing newbies how to make the mudra of mandala offering .Kecharian always selfless go out their way to share dharma with others. How nice!

  8. weeliang on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:37 am

    Dearest Mr. Ngeow,
    Your wisdom, strength, dedication and tenacity to teach the dharma at all the study groups throughout the nation is truly admirable. You have shown much generosity with your time, love and MONEY to Kechara house and all of us here. I have really gained much knowledge on dharma from you. You are the greatest of teachers because of your sincerity to dharma and all us practitioners. May Buddha bless you with infinite strength, good health, long life and hopefully, your hair back!! Haha. Lastly and most importantly, thank you for being patient with me and imparting to me your wisdom to me with such grace and generosity. 
    With folded hands and dedication of all my prayers,
    Wee Liang

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Dharma Cell Groups are an investment…
    Investment of patience, time, resources and most of all Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings
    By the leadership of Rinpoche who has proven Himself all these years that it is not only possible to do all of that but most of all it effects a self transformation, moulding a Bodhisattva within…
    I still recall how back in school, in helping out the advisor to the Christian fellowship group, it is certainly no easy task, lots of patience and cajoling, group dynamics and so forth…and further more we were all young and with limited resources…yet it was the brotherhood of faith that kept the group together…
    I am so glad that this Ipoh Group had taken great strides in providing an avenue for Dharma, especially Rinpoche’s teachings and the cause of Kechara to be further advanced for the benefit of all, even up north in Ipoh…Sadhu!

  10. Elaine Cheah on Jul 8, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Ipoh is a delightful, sleepy hollow about 2 hours north of KL, where food is cheap and good. Ipoh is famous for its pomelos, “white coffee”, fat crunchy bean sprouts and char kuey teow, charcoal fired toast with butter and kaya among other things, real good local stuff. In the past few years, this famous Ipoh hawker fare is being duplicated and offered in up-market malls in KL through the kopitiams. Try as they may, it’s nothing like the real deal. One fond memory I have of my dad is when I was little, he suddenly said one day, “Let’s drive up to Ipoh for lunch”. So we just dropped everything and journeyed to Ipoh, savoured the delicious food there and came back. Those were the days when there was no car air-con nor was there any need for one as I swear temperatures were a lot cooler and cleaner than today and we only had trunk roads up north, not the highways of today. So we bumped around in Dad’s old trusty Sunbeam and lunch became a whole day affair. So Ipoh food is worth driving all the way there.
    I remember having been to the Ipoh Study Group twice in the past to conduct pujas, the first being opening day where we invited Lama Tsongkhapa and the other, a regular cell group meeting. The members of the group are very warm people, unpretentious and sincere in wanting to learn. Even when most of the people had a Chinese Mahayana or Taoist background and Tsongkhapa was a foreign word, they were open to make offerings and participate in the pujas, showing they have tremendous respect for deities.
    It’s wonderful to see Kechara members from the mother ship going all out to support and nurture the group. Better still, to be part of the group that does that. I find that volunteering in dharma work is fulfilling and I derive a lot of happiness in being able to do my part, albeit small. To know that people in another part of town now know how to do the pujas, continue doing them at home and at the centre, benefitting themselves and those for whom they dedicate the merits, makes the very small sacrifice I made all the more worthwhile. End result is, they grow and I grow too.

  12. KYC on Jul 7, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    The Ipoh Study Group has grown since it opened more than a year ago. I attended the opening with several Kechara friends. We went in Alex Tan’s car together with Su Ming, May Woo and a few other KH members. Wai Meng, who is from Ipoh, also came along but he went in his own car. Alex Tan’s car, a Toyota Alphard is big and the statue of Lama Tsongkhapa fitted nicely at the back. On arrival, Dr Chong was there to invite Lama Tsongkhapa in and we all followed, carrying offerings etc. Then we set up the altar. Everybody helped. I remember meeting KH members who are from Ipoh: Lily, May Ong, Eric and their families. When the altar was ready, we had a puja. Elaine Cheah was the umze. After that we all had lunch before going back to Kuala Lumpur.

  13. Yokefui on Jul 7, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Certain events do seem coincidental –
    1) Dr Chong and family moved to Ipoh and wished to start a study group there to spread the Lamrim but could not get a suitable premise
    2) Ngeow happened to have a friend whose shoplot had been left vacant for years and he offered to KH free
    However, the 2 events are not totally coincidental because :
    1) Dr Chong wanted to start study group in Ipoh after he had experienced the benefits of Lamrim so the cause was created by having Lamrim classes in KH
    2) Ngeow’s friend was touched by Rinpoche’s sincerity to spread Tsongkhapa lineage and inspired by the rapid growth of the Organisation so cause for him to sponsor the premise was created through results shown by KH’s Spiritual Guide and members.
    Rinpoche always reminds us to practice purely and sincerely, with this in mind our actions will affect people around us and they will want to help and get involved. That ‘s how KWPC will manifest … by first developing the inner KWPC in us.

  14. May Ong on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Ipoh Study Group has come a long way since 2009 when I attended its opening. Being born in Ipoh originally, I am happy that Mr Ngeow and Wai Meng brought the teachings and Lord Setrap’s practice there to benefit the students.
    There may be many Buddhists in the world but not many understands what Lord Setrap stands for or how he can help us to clear our daily unforeseen OBSTACLES we are likely to come across. Happenings or coincidences we encounter may be viewed as accidental but are they? Are they causes we may have created for ourselves in our own previous actions or karma?
    What Goes Round Do Come Around …

  15. Jace Chong on Jul 6, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I am glad that I joined the troops and go Ipoh to promote Setrap, and thanks to Mr.Ngeow for giving such a details explaination about Setrap.
    I told Wai Meng that when Setrap puja starts, the cell group will grow bigger here. Just like how Chinese Setrap Puja started in KH and brought a lot of Chinese educated members in.
    I don’t know much and not a good student that has deep knowledge about Buddhism, but I share what I understand and what I apply to my daily life. It’s hard for me explain the reason why I like Setrap so much, I feel there’s something that made me connect to Him, I attend Setrap Puja every weeks since it started, I will come no matter what obstacles I had.
    I rejoice that with Setrap’s helps, a lot of people overcome their obstacles and difficulties. I always say “thank you” to Setrap when I feel He is around me.
    Sometimes I feel Setrap is like my uncle that takes care of me very closely (sorry ya Setrap), so in system barter, I would like to help Him back by introducing Him to as many people as possible, become “Setrap Promoter” =)

    Mr Ngeow, head of the education committee of Kechara House together with its committee such as Wai Meng, Thierry, Susan, Paris, has been slowly nurturing the Ipoh cell Group, giving dharma talks and introducing many practises such as Setrap. Beside Ipoh Cell Group, we also have devotees down in Melaka and even at JB. It is not easy for people to come to KL from Ipoh, Melaka or JB every week to attend our dharma classes, so what do we do? We bring the dharma to their door steps. Nothing can stop Kecharians from spreading the Dharma as sharing dharma knowledge is considered one of the highest offerings. And even though we do not officially have a Penang cell group, patsy our Kechara Paradise outlet manager there has already started a regular Setrap puja every week. Not just that, she is also leading a few volunteers to distribute food weekly to the homeless in Penang. There is no limit in our job scope. That is the spirit in Kechara!

  17. Albert on Jul 5, 2010 at 9:01 am

    Kechara has started the first department 10 years ago, during that time, it is so much difficult to spread dharma teaching as because we are lacking of people to work with us, until today, we have growth to 13 departments and not only that, there are more and more people know about us and start walking into their spiritual journey, even people from outstation also wanted to enter into spiritual journey, but it is not easy for them to come KL every week, therefore we had set up study group in few places out of Klang Valley. So that the people who not able to come to KL, they can gather together to study and to do their prayers, Mr Ngeow and Wai Meng has been tirelessly going from 1 place to another to conduct dharma class, and certain trip, we have a lot of sincere volunteer to go help explain to the locals of how to make offerings and the correct way to do prayers.
    It’s really a joyous thing to see the dharma growth as this can really benefit a lot of people.

  18. Ooi Pe on Jul 5, 2010 at 1:24 am

    Wai Meng and sifu Mr Ngeow have been tireless in their trips up north to visit our Ipoh Cell Group friends, to conduct dharma classes and connect with them. Thanks also to many other friends and supporters who went to join them. If Mohd cannot come to the mountain, the mountain will go to him.
    The group is expanding under the guidance of many people – Dr Chong, Dr Ming, Wai Meng, Mr Ngeow, Eric Choong to name but a few. I admire them for their untiring involvement with the group. They have truly brought dharma to these people who in turn have brought more friends into dharma.

  19. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    Good work done and thumbs up for Ngeow, Wai Meng, Eric Choong, Dr Chong, Dr Ming and others who have nurtured the Ipoh Cell Group. We can see that the Ipoh Cell Group is expanding nicely. Ipoh people are getting Dharma education and they are like a big family now. They are enthusiastic and they come down to Kechara House for events and keep tap on things happening here. May Setrap bestow lots of lots of love and blessing on Ipoh Cell Group. May they all grow with wisdom and compassion. May they achieve enlightenment quickly.

  20. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 4, 2010 at 7:57 am

    Thank you Ms Han for inviting Raymong Chu and Jace too. Many thanks to Jace, Raymond, Raymond’s lovely wife and kids, Dino, Mr Ngeow, Yee Mun and the participants of the Chinese Setrap Session to make it happen. Hope we can have a regular puja session pretty soon. Setrap’s practice will be so beneficial for the people in Ipoh and anywhere else in samsara.
    Doing this enlightened Dharmapala’s practice removes much obstacles that can hinder us from doing real spiritual practice. Typically one receives protector practice after one has a firm grounding in the Lamrim. Due to Rinpoche’s kindness and foresight we have access to such practices even though we are so mundane. Due to this degenerate age – Kaliyuga and the countless delusions and distractions beings have these days, protector practice can really benefit beings with very low merit. Rinpoche is well known to be able to benefit beings of low merits throughout out his line of incarnations. I rejoice in Rinpoche’s actions and deeds in allowing Kecharians to practice protector practices.

  21. Han on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:10 am

    I personally realise the benefits of attending Setrap Puja since 2006. I had the merit to meet Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in on of the KH event and remebered that night Rinpoche’s teaching was about Lord Setrap. I beleive that through Setrap’s blessings, i gain faith in the Dharma and understand dharma more in depth.
    KH weekly Setrap Puja is one of the activity i seldom want to miss.Through the weekly puja, i came across many stories of how Setrap has helped. Eg, there are couples that always querrel and family not in peace, after attended few sessions of setrap puja with sincere motivation, the couple shared with me that they has less arguement and has PEACE OF MIND.
    I also very happy to know that after they experienced Setrap help and benefits, they start to get involve, to volunteer, to sponsor…in KH. Not only that, they also encourage the friends to join our weekly setrap puja.
    Want to learn about Setrap and engage in his practice. You may join KH coming Setrap retreat, starts from 6th July, for more information, please log on to

  22. Shirley Tan on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Wow, I am really blown away by how far and wide our Kecharians will go to in order to spread the Dharma. In this case, it is helping so many people who otherwise may not have even heard of the words: Dharma and Setrap. As David explained so clearly, Setrap is immensely beneficial to everyone for numerous things. You can check out all the different stories of how Lord Setrap has helped and saved lives in the website that David has posted in his comments. Or better yet, go get yourself a Setrap Box Set and start right away!

  23. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Setrap is such a wonderful practice to share openly to others. Setrap is the emanation of Amitabha Buddha and all Chinese revere and love Amitabha Buddha. Hence you will see lots of Namo Amitabha car stickers running around town here in Kuala Lumpur.
    But the best part of Setrap is that he is extremely beneficial to alleviate health, wealth and all manner of problems. We have heard so many times that Setrap has helped many people gain jobs, protected them from accidents, spirits and financial problems. What’s amazing is that through Setrap’s blessings, many people gain faith in the Dharma. They come, join our activities and study the Lamrim via Rinpoche’s incredible teachings. They eventually gain the real protection through these teachings.
    KH is coming up with a Setrap retreat so do come and learn about Setrap and engage in his practice. Check out this link for more info:-

  24. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    by the way, if anyone else would like to go to any of these study groups to visit, please get in touch with Mr Ngeow (head of the education committee) or any of the liaisons and we’ll arrange to go together when we’re next heading down. Share the love!!!

  25. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    These visits to the study groups around the country is something that all the liaisons are doing every month – we take turns to go down to visit the other branches as a way of connecting to our “satellites” and get to know the people there better. It’s nice to see how the family is growing and even more so when the study groups in turn, come up to KL for events up at the main centre too 🙂

  26. han on Jul 3, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Not only puja benefits the group, the dharma talk by Mr Ngeow or Eric Choong regularly do make the different to them too. May we all nurture the group and spread the dharma in Ipoh wide.

  27. yyk on Jul 2, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Ya, another “dharma family” growing up, happy to see it:)

  28. May Ong on Jun 29, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Thank you for bringing setrap puja to benefit the Ipoh study group

  29. Peter on Jun 28, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    And the ‘family’ grows and expands…’ sadhu!

    The Miraculous White Tara of the Majapahit Empire

    Supriyono lived in a village in Indonesia’s East Java Province. In early October 2011, he dreamt of a bluish-red dragon surrounding his village before it finally dived into an old well. Supriyono took the dream as a sign and located the old well in the Brahu Temple complex in the Trowulan sub-district of East Java Province.

    Tales with My Lama: A Snapshot of Rinpoche’s Room

    Tsem Rinpoche had always been a private person and his bedroom was basically his personal domain. However, as a lama or a spiritual guide, Rinpoche would allow a number of his students and friends to intrude upon his personal space for gatherings, meetings and sometimes just to talk or watch a movie on his computer. Many people are probably curious about what Rinpoche’s room looks like and would perhaps like a snapshot that reveals a little bit more of Rinpoche’s world.

    Postcard from Raymond: “Monk’s Posture”

    To some, it may just look like a photograph of people sleeping on a fast-moving train in China, but it has deep significance. Sprawled around in the picture are men, women and children sleeping, but what is remarkable is the beautiful Chinese Mahayana monk, sitting crossed-legged in meditation posture with his head slightly bent.

    Thank you Pastor David for this very well-written article. It describes Rinpoche’s room and life just as what I have the honoured to have observed with my own eyes. Everything Rinpoche did was for the long term benefit of others, and the equanimity he applied onto everyone including the animals impressed me tremendously. If you think Rinpoche treated his mumus like prince and princess, that’s the way he treated all of us. If you think Rinpoche was very strict to His students, this is how he trained his mumus too. If you think he is very “OCD” in planting Dharma imprints on us, he did exactly the same to his mumus and all the animals. Not only that, he would tirelessly use many different methods and approaches according to every single individual’s levels of comprehension to make sure they will get the maximum benefits out of his skilfull teachings, either now or in the future. This is the guru who made me value the importance of Dharma.

    Thank you for the sharing , it has very informative information. It is necessary to take serious action to prevent environment and save earth, to reuse and recycle. We should correct our mistakes, selfishness towards our environment. Every single action taken is to maintain the originality of the environment, if for our betterment to make live healthy and safe from pollution.

    Though government has formulated various schemes and established laws to prevent and to save the nature environment. Yet it should be still the duty of each individually to protect it for our future generations, as we are the people consuming its benefits.

    It is hard to believe but true that only a little positive movements by everyone may bring a huge change in the declining environment. Glad to read about the inventors ideas to protect the nature and help to save our environment. A good article to be shared with family and friends.

    “NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Humane law enforcement agents of the ASPCA arrested a Queens woman accused of animal neglect.

    Acting on an anonymous complaint, ASPCA agents went to the residence of 47-year-old Ana Herra and found a female mixed breed dog named Julie, who was in “terrible condition.”

    According to Joseph Pentangelo, the Assistant Director for Humane Law Enforcement at the ASPCA, when authorities came upon the dog, she was “very weak” and “in need of medical attention.”

    Pentangelo told 1010 WINS Saturday that the dog had to be euthanized after having a physical exam at Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital.

    “Her health was very compromised and she had not had veterinary attention in a long period of time,” he said.

    Herra was charged with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. She faces up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

    “Animals do depend on us for their care and nobody has to own a pet. But if you do own a pet, you should recognize the responsibility and there are laws that involve that responsibility,” Pentangelo said.”

    This depicts a Tibetan system with dealing with corpses. After prayers have been done by the Monks, the cemetery workers will slice up the body of the dead, mix it with barley flour and with prayers scatter it to the vultures. It is the last act of giving for the person who has eaten flesh themselves their whole lives.

    It reminds us that our bodies are borrowed and VERY TEMPORARY. It is not a good idea to attach so much to our bodies, but more to our minds. Our minds will leave the bodies and whether we bury, cremate or feed it to animals, we will have to leave it. We have left our bodies so many times in our previous lives and we have no memory of it and neither does anyone else. Some people might find it disrespectful to feed the bodies to the animals, but our bodies will be eaten by insects/maggots anyways when buried. What we do with the dead doesn’t so much affect the dead. It is more for the living. But then the living quickly becomes the dead anyways and then everything is forgotten.

    So what is important, is to take care of the mind. Start now. Whenever you feel like quitting, remember your mortality and all the karmas you have accumulated. Nothing is harder than to control one’s negativities and fears, but death doesn’t stop anything, it is just carried over into future lives. So deal with yourselves now and overcome now. THERE’S NO ESCAPE FROM THE SELF.

    The Yong He Gong Lama Temple, also known as the ‘Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple’, is a temple and monastery of the Gelug (Yellow Hat) School of Tibetan Buddhism. It is located in the North-Eastern central part of Beijing.

    Yong He Gong was built in the 33rd year during the reign of Emperor Kang Xi (1694). It was built as the residence for his 4th son, Prince Yong Zheng. In 1722, Prince Yong Zheng ascended to the throne and moved to the Forbidden City. However, he still had great affection towards the mansion as he had been living there for 30 years. In his third year of reign, Emperor Yong Zheng upgraded it and named the mansion to Yong He Gong.

    In 1735, Emperor Yong Zheng passed away and his body was temporarily kept there. After his passing, Emperor Qian Long ascended to the throne. In his 9th year of reign he followed his mother’s instructions, took into consideration his father’s belief in Buddhism and he rebuilt the major halls into Buddhist ones, transforming it into a Tibetan Buddhist temple!

    In the Falun Hall, also known as the Great Hall of Scriptures, sits a grand 6 metre statue of the founder of the Gelugpa school, Lama Tsongkhapa. Below is an article on the restoration of Lama Tsongkhapa in the heart of Beijing, China. Take a look at how they restore the gold painting on the beautiful Lama Tsongkhapa. Very nice restoration of something culturally very important to the Chinese nation.

    Pemako is located in southeast Tibet. In Tibetan, the word “Pemako” means “Lotus Array” or “Lotus of Great Bliss”. It is a land that intrigues many Western explorers as it is thought to be the sacred land of nectar and bliss as described in Buddhist scriptures.

    Pemako is thought to be one of the 16 earthly paradises, a promised land where humanity will survive in the event of worldwide famine or calamities. It was also referred to by Guru Rinpoche as the “supreme hidden land”. Guru Rinpoche had concealed 108 “beyuls” or “hidden valleys” in the Himalayas to be revealed at specific times during the degenerate age. Shambala is the greatest hidden valley, Pemako is another one of them. The Buddhist texts describe these hidden valleys as being reminiscent of paradise. They can only be reached with enormous hardship, and those who force their way through may encounter failure or even, death.

    The landscape and geography of Pemako is shaped like that of Vajrayogini’s sacred body in a sleeping posture form.

    Her head is Kangri Kangpo (White Snow Mountain)
    Her two bosoms are Namche Barwa and Gyala Peri (both mountains)
    The lower part of her body lies in Yang Sang (upper Siang region of Arunachal Pradesh)
    Her sacred triangle is at the confluence of Siang and Yang Sang (rivers)
    Her sacred vulva is at Kila Yangzom
    Her navel is a small Nyingmapa monastery called Rinchenpung

    This is such a heart-warming story, to go the extra mile for an animal that cannot even say thank you. As a good human being, we have to be kind and generous to not just our kind but to animals as well. We should be even kinder to animals because they are the weaker ones.

    Human beings take away their habitats but all they can do is to try to find another place to live in. They have no one to complain to, there is no justice for them. The least we can do is not to harm them and help them whenever we can.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this worthy thoughts. The truth is, if we want to forget something , we need to let go, forgive ourselves, forgive the situation, and realize that the situation is over to move forward in life. Letting go can be one of the most difficult things we can do in our life. If we do not let go we cannot move on, we got to create space to for a new beginning and meaningful life.

    Inspiring story of Pang Mipham Gönpo an eighty years old man realising death is near, and had wasted most of his life. He wanted to achieve the highest meditative realisations till his last breath of his life. Well , this is an example for us not to give up whatever matters how hard the situation is.
    Age is just a number, Pang Mipham Gönpo met his famous teacher the learned pandit Vairochana and great translator for dharma practice. He practised diligently with the aid of a stick to hold up his chin and a meditation-strap to keep his legs crossed. His determination pays off, he gained realization and attained the rainbow body.
    Regardless of how old we are and how difficult it is to practise the Dharma is the right choice. Courage and practice is the most important of all the virtues in spite of all obstacles. With determination, it helps get us through tough situations in life. An inspiring story….a reminder for us not to give up in difficult situation .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and the profound teachings.

    Which guru shall I choose? | 我应该选择哪一位上师?

    We should follow our guru not because of his fame, rank, prestige, power or number of students he has or how big his organization is, but because he helped us to transform our minds to be a better person and we can see this within ourselves. This transformation is sacred. Because he gave us dharma from his heart and loved us.

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
