A Gift from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche | 格西格桑嘉措仁波切的礼物

A Gift from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche | 格西格桑嘉措仁波切的礼物

  (译文请往下阅读) In the 70’s, when I came across Buddhism, there were books and there were items that were translated and some of them were quite good. But there was not a lot. And, if you want to study what the monastic system study, it was very difficult to find translations. And if you did find translations, they were very technical and dry and if I may say quite boring. Decades ago, I came across some books by His Eminence Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and I read through them. I found the books systematic, easy to understand, orderly, based on...

Jul 8, 2019
The beautiful and blessed Amitayus statues which was kindly gifted to me by H.H. Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.

(译文请往下阅读) Last year in November 2014, I requested a group of my students to go to Vermont (USA) to meet His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche and to make offerings on my behalf. I was unable to go at the time. So they represented me. Our group had the wonderful fortune to go there and receive a timely audience. They had made extensive offerings to Trijang Rinpoche and updated him on my activities, our works, what we have been doing, and also brought a photo album of Kechara’s departments and all of our activities to show Trijang Rinpoc...

Are You Secular Or Spiritual? | 你选俗世之道,还是佛法之道?

(译文请往下阅读) (By Tsem Rinpoche) Sometimes I read online people who criticize Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and other great beings and then on another breath they are all spiritual and talking about initiations and practices the Dalai Lama is giving… and the teachings and transmissions, and how holy, fortunate and lucky they are to get these teachings. Great, so if the teachings are so holy, practice and be holy. On the other breath, they are saying how negative, bad and harmful Geshe Kelsang Gyatso or another lama is, and I think we are getting secular and...

I will not be pulled into conflict | 我不会让自己卷入冲突中

I will not be pulled into conflict | 我不会让自己卷入冲突中

(译文请往下阅读) (By Tsem Rinpoche) Some people think if they trust Trijang Rinpoche they are against H.H. Dalai Lama. Some people think if they have faith in H.H. Dalai Lama which they should, they cannot accept Trijang Rinpoche. That is wrong view. Certainly H.H. Dalai Lama is a high incarnation, highly attained and one of the greatest scholars of Buddhism in this world. He really practiced the sacred teachings and became attained…lifetimes ago and incarnate to benefit others. But His Holiness the Dalai Lama was not the only one. Many great be...

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.

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
