When I Had No One Else…

(By Tsem Rinpoche) Dear friends, I was instructed by one of my teachers years ago to do a book on my biography. I didn’t want to do it. I thought that my life was nothing exceptional at all. My teacher insisted. I couldn’t  say “no” anymore although I am kind of embarrassed to talk...

Chasing?

Apr 23, 2012

  In our short lives we have trusted in so much that turned out to be short term results, no results, sad results or results that are disappointing. Top of the list are the chasing of money, paying off commitments, dragging ourselves to hell and back for relationships that end nowhere, fantasizing materialism brings...

Wherever I stay this is what happens..

This is hardly a surprise given the energy generated by the monastic community’s ultimate goal – to practice undiscriminating compassion, and achieve enlightenment.

Our goal

Our goal

Kindness is the way to clarity. Clarity leads to calmness. Calmness opens the door to wisdom. Wisdom transforms our habits. Our habits transform into eventual attainments. Attainments allow us freedom. Freedom allows us freedom for others. That is the goal of the sacred Buddha who has no rival in all of existence. That is...

Avalokiteshvara, Turkey Swamp, Marc & Me | 观音菩萨、火鸡沼泽公园、马克和我

(By Tsem Rinpoche) (译文请往下阅读) November 9, 2010 Turkey Swamp was a large park with huge lake around 3 hours bicycle ride from my childhood home in New Jersey. If you went by car it’s around 45 mins or more. One of my relatives took me there once and I loved it as a kid. I asked my childhood friend Marc Reed to bicycle there with me. He was very agreeable. He is a very outdoor type of person, strong, energetic and game to try any physical activity. So off Marc and I went…it was a real LONG bike ride and physically gruelling 2-3 hours&#...

Some random thoughts of mine..

The best thing we can do for others is when we see so much suffering and feel compassion for them and want to do something is: Be an excellent nun or a monk. If cannot, then next best thing, practice the 8 verses combined with Lord Tsongkapa’s practice and dedicate to them. If we...

When we get more then we will do more?

    We always pray for long life. When we get longer life, then we have more samsaric activities to engage in. We always pray for more money. When we get it, we have more things to buy, more places to visit, more dinners to go, more acquisitions to obtain. We always pray for...

The secrets to having a good relationship

Dear friends, There are ways we can have a good relationship with our spouse and partners. The methods are not hard. How ‘hard’ it is to implement is dependent on how much you really want this relationship. How much we want ANYTHING IS HOW HARD WE MAKE IT IN OUR MINDS. The reasons why...

Why ask for it?

Feb 14, 2012
Why ask for it?

All types of people in a dharma centre. Some come for luck and improvement of their personal situatiions and it stops there. Others come because they see the fallacious nature of life and it’s empty promises and they want better answers. There are some that can’t fit anywhere else and can only find acceptance...

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.
