In the presence of Manjushri | 恩师甘露法雨

(中文分享请往下看) On July 21, 2016, 16 of us came together to engage in a retreat on the sacred practice of Manjushri. It was a four-day retreat in between work and assignments. By the end of the retreat we had each recited 100,000 mantras. Collectively we accumulated 1.6 million mantras altogether. During the retreat, our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche shared a message with us on the state of the mind and the benefit of Manjushri’s practice. “Outer obstacles (financial, sickness, fear, disasters, etc.) arise from our own actions. Actions a...

Shall I teach?

Shall I teach?

Jul 20, 2014   (By Tsem Rinpoche) When I do my ‘duty’ and teach dharma to people and the illusions of samsara, they find it hard to let go. I am accused of not letting them live their lives and have fun. They insist they cannot, will not or not ready to let go. When I don’t teach...

Why are excuses impermanent?

Why are excuses impermanent?

We all have excuses, reasons, justifications and thoughts why we can’t do this and that. We like to sometimes use these excuses and explain to others until we think they think it is valid. They may or may not believe the validity of our reasons, but one thing is for sure, if we believe...

Miracles of Tsem Rinpoche: The true story of Ah Hao | 詹仁波切的奇迹:阿豪的真实故事

Apr 15, 2015
Miracles of Tsem Rinpoche: The true story of Ah Hao | 詹仁波切的奇迹:阿豪的真实故事

Being Rinpoche’s personal attendant means that I am able to witness real Dharma in action, both on and off the throne. I consider myself extremely fortunate, and at the same time it is also a great challenge to instil Dharma in my life 24/7. Over the years I have witnessed many cases of how Rinpoche helped many people in both worldly and supramundane ways, so I decided to have these stories told in comic form for the wider audience. It is my wish that through these stories many will be inspired to achieve the state of compassion and attai...

(译文请往下阅读) (by Pastor Loh Seng Piow) Over the years, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has been to many hospitals, doing prayers, performing rituals, giving comfort to the sick, and relieving the worries of the families. The ones on the sick bed could be babies… born with defective organs desperately needing operation, young children, adult men and women with all sorts of illnesses, and dying old people. Rinpoche is clairvoyant to know whether the person on the sick bed is going to survive or not, so the prayers and rituals that Rinpoche performs...

What’s in Rinpoche’s warehouse? | 仁波切的仓库有什么?

(译文请往下阅读) This is a warehouse full of Buddhist and non-Buddhist items, it is huge, but it is not the merchandise for any online shop, these are GIFTS, to be given out for free, these are His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s gifts to the world. Tsem Rinpoche first came to Malaysia 23 years ago, with only two suitcases of his monk robes, toiletries, Dharma books, and some protection chakras and talisman to give away to people, that’s all, no sponsor, no friends, no …students, no nothing. But Rinpoche has Dharma knowledge, kindness and c...

Short & simple

  Tolerance is an interesting word. It denotes the object is at fault or difficult to deal with. Be it so in some cases as there is reality to contend with. If the subject changes the views, then the object although in certain circumstances are difficult, still the subject will not have to ‘tolerate’...

The Rain Stopper | 呼风唤雨

(译文请往下阅读) The Rain Stopper A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite h...

Born out of wedlock, his parents abandoned him, his grandmother paid USD$50 a month to a foster family to take care of him, the foster family abused him, beat him, punished him to kneel on rice grains for hours, starved him until he had to steal bread from shops to feed himself, and when the foster family did not starve him, they fed him white rice mixed with sugar until his teeth were rotten, and when Rinpoche’s grandmother bought him a wooden-horse toy, the fo...

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.
