This happened in the USA

Dear friends around the world, I was surprised when I came across this post on Facebook. When I was growing up in US, there was a lot of racial slander, slurs and name calling I had to contend with. Sometimes they even escalated into violence towards me because I was Asian. I often had...

Will the Dalai Lama agree with this?

Will the Dalai Lama agree with this?

I post on many subjects. I post on my feelings, thoughts and what I’ve learned. I write what I see and it may not be what you see, but that is okay because diversity is so necessary. We can still be civil and polite in our differences with others. After all, things can change....

Appeal to H.H. the Dalai Lama

  Dear Friends, Since we don’t have a chance to have direct dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the Dorje Shugden ban and his advices against the practice, these are just some appeals I hope will reach him and or his people. It is very important we have dialogue with at least...

The Burning Times

Mar 8, 2020
The Burning Times

The 6-part film below is called “The Burning Times”. It explains what went on during the period from 1450 to 1700. That period of time in history is actually referred to as the ‘burning times’. Thousands of witches (either practicing or falsely accused) were burnt to death, tortured, hung, stoned and drowned… all because...

Dalai Lama, China & Dorje Shugden | 达赖尊者、中国和多杰雄登

Dalai Lama, China & Dorje Shugden | 达赖尊者、中国和多杰雄登

(译文请往下阅读) Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon as I have been told by many extraordinary people I’ve met recently. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or lead...

现在我能针对雄登清楚地表明看法

(詹杜固仁波切撰写)15年余来,我一直都很想温和地讲解关于我们的传承、修持、护法神及传统。我的上师指示我不作声并保持低调。我不可能违抗上师的指示。每隔几年我都会询问我是否能表明看法,最终于去年年末,我获准表明自己的看法。一直以来我都遵循指示,不发一语。

(By Tsem Rinpoche) Dear friends around the world, I have been wanting to speak out gently about our lineage, practice, protector and traditions for over 15 years. I have received advice from my Guru to keep silent and stay low key. I could not defy my guru’s instructions. I have been asking every few...

雄登人

(詹杜固仁波切撰写)你认为我们应该基于人们的经济阶层、性别、宗教信仰或无信仰、性向及文化而孤立他们?你认为人们应该因为自己的偏爱有别于他们心底所想的而被审判吗?你是否认为一些人是优越的,另一些人是低劣的吗?

Dorje Shugden people

(By Tsem Rinpoche) My dearest friends around the world, What is your opinion: Do you think we should segregate other people due to their economic class, color, gender, religious belief or lack of it, sexual orientation and culture? Should humans be judged on their preference as opposed to who they are inside? Do you...

I pray to what I want to

(中文翻译请点击这里:https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57247) This is respectfully addressed to all spiritual aspirants, Whether our teacher is famous or high profile or not should not matter in our trust, belief and loyalty towards our teacher. Whatever our teacher disseminates to us should have a lineage and since it has brought benefit to others in the past for hundreds of years, why doubt? Teachings must have a lineage and if our teacher has explained the lineage to us and we have accepted it, then go all the way with it without further doubts. In this...

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...

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.

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.
