Spirituality Without Religion?

Jun 29, 2016
Spirituality Without Religion?

The minds of the present generation of individuals are slowly but surely wandering away from religious practice. Unlike before, few have any respect for religion, and for this I do not blame the Individuals themselves. People are right in asserting their dislike for religion to a certain extent. So many wars have been fought, so many...

Tsem Rinpoche’s Great Guru Devotion | 依止上师的仁波切

(译文请往下阅读) H.E. Tsem Rinpoche was recognized as a reincarned high lama in 1990 in Gaden Monastery. However, in the Gelug lineage, even if you are a reincarnation, you still need to prove yourself in this lifetime with your knowledge, practice, and guru devotion. Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe was a great lama and one of the gurus of Tsem Rinpoche, and Kensur Rinpoche was also the ex-abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery, but his health back then was always not very good. Tsem Rinpoche invited Kensur Rinpoche to stay in Tsem Rinpoche’s ladrang in Gaden M...

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.
