Into The Wild

Oct 29, 2015
Into The Wild

I have always loved architecture and blog about it whenever I can, especially houses that blend in creatively with nature. People often dream of owning big houses in big cities; who would have thought that a small house in the middle of nowhere would be so appealing? It’s amazing how creativity can turn something...

When I first shared with Malaysians about container homes and their benefits, most of them looked at me with a little hesitation… however, in the States, people have been using container homes for years! Some because they can’t afford the rising costs in housing property, and some because they’re cost-effective, you can get them...

Body of a courtesan in nine stages

(By Tsem Rinpoche) Dear friends around the world, I found this to be interesting. Obviously people have had attachments to the body which causes us to take up actions that bind us for a lifetime pulling us away sometimes from higher spiritual attainments. We think we can do something for a while, but it...

Extraordinary House

Extraordinary House

(Built 1960) This house is extra-ordinary. It was built on a very steep land that nobody wanted because it would have been very expensive to build on. So a clever guy with a small budget bought it and challenged John Lautner to build a house on it with …a budget. John Lautner recalls that...

Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

EXPAND
Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

Be Relevant

This is the blog of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Please respect this space. We request that all participants here are respectful of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his organisation, Kechara.

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at care@kechara.com and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

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
