The Self-Arising Chenrezig

Feb 2, 2018
The Self-Arising Chenrezig

(By Tsem Rinpoche And Pastor David Lai) According to Buddhism, high-level meditators and enlightened beings attain the realisation of Emptiness (the highest wisdom) and Bodhicitta (the ultimate compassionate wish to benefit others) through tremendous effort and practice. Since they have achieved such powerful attainments, they become worthy objects of refuge. That is why they...

குவான் யின் நாள்

குவான் யின் நாள்

சென்ரெட்ஸிக் (திபெத்தில்) அல்லது குவான் யின், புத்த மதத்தில் எடுத்த அனைத்து அவதாரங்களையும் எனக்கு மிகவும் பிடிக்கும். எனது சிறுப்பிராயத்தில், நான் கருணை வேண்டி தியானம் இருந்ததோடு, நிறைய மந்திரங்களை ஓதுவேன். சென்ரெட்ஸிக், நான் வணங்கி வழிபட்ட புத்தர்களில் ஒருவர் என்பதை என்னால் ஒருமனதுடன் கூற முடியும். நான் மலேசியாவிற்கு வருவதற்கு முன்பு, எனக்கு சீன வடிவம் கொண்ட குவான் யின் மீது எப்பொழுதும் ஓர் ஈர்ப்பு இருந்தது. நான் அமெரிக்காவில் வசித்த பொழுது, குவான்...

Emptiness with a Heart of Compassion

(By Tsem Rinpoche) Dear friends around the world, I have always been very attracted to Buddhism since young, although my parents forbade me to engage in it fully. I would always look for secret opportunities to do my sadhanas (daily prayers) and would be beaten severely if I were caught in the act. It...

What Do You Think?

What Do You Think?

This video was on my Facebook newsfeed and suffice to say, it disturbed me. It disturbed me because it was basically senseless pain being inflicted on another being. Not to say inflicting pain on anyone is excusable or justifiable under any circumstances, but in this case it was totally and entirely without utility. What...

Blog Chat


Dear blog friends,

I’ve created this section for all of you to share your opinions, thoughts and feelings about whatever interests you.

Everyone has a different perspective, so this section is for you.

Tsem Rinpoche


8 - 9PM (GMT +8)
4 - 5AM (PST)


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.
