The Crow Pheasant: Bringer of Auspicious Omens

Oct 25, 2018

In my small garden in Kechara Forest Retreat, on the roof of the newly built dog kennel landed a very unusual bird. I can see it clearly from my window. It is around 20-25 inches. All black except for two light brown wings. He has a long feathered tail and long beak. He is...

Tales of the Mystical Firebird

Dec 28, 2016
Tales of the Mystical Firebird

Since ancient times, there has been much fascination with bird-like creatures because of their ability to fly and their freedom to go where mere mortals cannot, at least until the advent of modern technology. Their mystery and seasonal disappearances also add to their allure. It is no wonder then that the Firebird continues to...

How to Bird-Proof Your Windows to Protect Our Feathered Friends

Dear friends, It is a very common occurrence for birds to fly into windows. Most of our windows are clear and transparent, and birds will fly straight into the window thinking that they are heading towards an open space. Most birds do not survive this type of collision so it is very important for...

Tsem Rinpoche cares for animals

Dec 17, 2014
Tsem Rinpoche rescued these fish and has been caring for them ever since

Tsem Rinpoche just sent this short teaching to some of us. I wanted to share it here so you have a glimpse into how Rinpoche thinks. In the midst of everything Rinpoche coordinates, organises, teaches and promotes, Rinpoche still has the care and time to think of the creatures everyone else often overlooks. Rinpoche’s...

They didn’t want us…(KFR)

Oct 14, 2013
They didn’t want us…(KFR)

The very first bird that I had was given to me by a nun named Anila Thubten Chonyid when I was very young.  I have always loved birds. I find that they each have their own little personalities… they have their own temperaments, likes and dislikes, cliques, habits, attitudes etc. I always want to provide...

The Old Man Nobody Wants

The Old Man Nobody Wants

I’ve always loved animals. My love for birds started when I was given my first bird as a child. It was a grey female cockatiel, given to me by Anila (a nun) named Carmen in America. Since then I have had more pets, including birds, dog, fishes… I usually go and liberate birds…. I...

Meet Our Little Avian Friends

Meet Our Little Avian Friends

I have from time to time gone shopping with my friends and students and because I have a soft spot in my heart for all animals, I have many times returned home with more than a few friends of the feathered kind. Currently the Tsem Ladrang Aviary has 35 birds adopted from a less-than-exciting...

Please come and join in the chat for a fun time and support. See you all there.

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.

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 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.
