Good News for Animal Lovers!

Dear friends, It breaks my heart to see animals abandoned, hungry and suffering on the streets. Most of them are ignored by passersby, and some are even abused and killed for sport. I always carry some food and water in my car so that I can feed any hungry animal I come across and...

Offshore Drilling in Arctic Banned

Offshore Drilling in Arctic Banned

One of today’s most pressing environmental issues is the dwindling sea ice, the result of man-made global warming. In turn, the thinning Arctic ice has created new opportunities for oil companies to exploit the environment through offshore drilling. Previously, I wrote briefly about Shell’s expedition to the Arctic and strongly encouraged all my readers...

But what happens when we identify ourselves too strongly with the community we live in? It doesn’t matter whether our community is based on physical appearance, race, religion or similarities in views...

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.
