Why can’t we be friends?

Jan 1, 2018
Why can’t we be friends?

  Before the unethical ban against the spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden, all the teachers are friendly, they are in contact and support each other.

Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s special thangka | 属于格西族亲格而辛的非凡唐卡

Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s special thangka | 属于格西族亲格而辛的非凡唐卡

(译文请往下阅读) In Tibetan Buddhism, especially when you have entered the Tantric path, it is vital that you have your teacher’s blessings, that you are in good relations with your teacher (have clean samaya) and that whatever you do within the religious sphere, you have your teacher’s permission. At a very early stage in my life, it was instilled in me that Guru Devotion is more than just saying “This person is my Guru” or “That person is my Guru”, “I attended this teaching” or “I go to this Dharma center”. Guru Devotion was explained as devoting on...

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...

Visiting His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche in Vermont | 到佛蒙特州拜会至尊赤江卓图仁波切

(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 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 Rinpoche....

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.

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.
