Build Your Own Growroom

Build Your Own Growroom

I’ve always appreciated creativity especially when it involves architecture. Creativity is not a quality that everyone possesses, but it can be acquired with determination and effort. A student sent me this article showcasing this wonderful food-producing architecture that promotes self sustainability. I love ideas like this very much and I hope that one day,...

Creativity Never Goes Out of Style

Dec 21, 2015
Creativity Never Goes Out of Style

Creativity is not something that everyone is blessed with. But if we try hard and stay committed, there are so many things that we can achieve in a creative sense… we may not even be aware of our own talents and capacity for creativity! I recently came across a website showcasing cabins that were conceptualized...

These are creative and beautiful!

These are creative and beautiful!

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...

Stunning Bookshelves!

Stunning Bookshelves!

Dear friends, When I was much younger, I would visit flea markets with my adult relatives and purchase as many books of all genres as I can with my savings. I would visit many libraries in the area also. I was a voracious reader and love books. I still love books. I recalled purchasing, at...

Hilarious short video!!!!

This is really a hilarious video. Take a few minutes out from your day and watch. It is not in English, but just watch..the expressions and body language are universal. It is a stunt pulled in the shopping centre to show the public how sheltered they are. It is amazing to see who some...

Extraordinary House

Apr 17, 2011
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


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.
