亲爱的博友:

请你看看这些遍布中国各地的大佛像。这一尊尊的大佛像使我叹为观止。我真希望将来有一日能在这些佛像跟前礼佛。千百年来,中国与佛教结缘,并且促进佛教在中国丰富、多元的文化中生根。如今,佛教又开始展现欣欣向荣之象了……愿每一个人都能跟这一尊尊庄严的佛像结善缘,并且因此受益。

也请你跟朋友们分享以下内容,让他们也大开眼界。

詹杜固仁波切敬启

    中国虽不反对却也不特别鼓励人民有宗教信仰,但中国境内的大佛像却倒是令人惊讶的多,有许多是古迹,也有不少是新建的。无论古迹或新建,只要有大佛像,就会有证悟者的加持。况且每年前往中国旅游的游客众多,虽然旅游的目的不见得是朝圣,但即便是无心插柳,就算你只是在佛前拍照都好,那也足以在心识中留下佛的种子,将来有朝一日自然会有种子发芽成长的一天。这是值得随喜的。

    China is a vast country with many huge statues been built over the centuries. Having a long history of Buddhism, the statues been built with ancient architectures ,art and sculpture of various sizes . Some of those seem to be the world largest and tallest . Amazing to look at those beautiful statues been rich in their culture for thousands of years. They are built all over China, every province there are at least one or two amazing structure. Buddha statues are getting bigger on mainland China in bid to lure pilgrims and tourists. I would love to see those amazing structures Buddhist statues. Out of those 24 huge Statues in China , I have only visited Big Buddha of Lingshan (Buddha Shakyamuni), Big Buddha of Leshan, Sichuan, Samantabhadra, Sichuan Province and Manjushri, Shanxi Province.

    Look at beautiful pictures of mountains and lakes are Rinpoche past times since young. Ever since then Rinpoche dream to stay near a lake or river with mountains and forests…..a home call home do intense practice. As Rinpoche ‘s promise to his Gurus , Rinpoche will carry on whatever happened. Reading this post of Rinpoche’s thought , longing and loneliness , I have a sense of loneliness as well but it different from Rinpoche. I do feel peaceful and the quiet environment, breathing fresh air up in the mountains. Spending some time alone with nature and broaden my views. The beauty of nature can have a long effect on how we look at things. Rinpoche journey is truly inspiring and I wish Rinpoche ‘s dream will materialise soon. I will do my best to learn as much as I could, and practice dharma, which I have learned from scratch, nothing to something , I do truly appreciate so much with folded hands.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your thoughts with us.

    Due to the unethical ban on Dorje Shugden practice, Dorje Shugden practitioners, non practitioners and many more had suffered mentally , abuses , discriminations , violence, public services denied and so forth. Sadly all because of the Tibetan leadership , families were torn apart, monasteries divided . The Tibetan Leadership has mixed politics with religion . Should not have happened.
    With all these simple memes , hopeful more people will get a better understand and truth of this Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. May the Dorje Shugden ‘s ban will be lifted soon.

    It is amazing that a cat can understand the rules that were told and abided by it. Even though the cat cannot chant but it just stays quietly, listening to the chanting and staring at the Buddha statue with full respect. The cat follows the vegetarian diet and refuses to eat meat.

    This cat must have a very strong imprint that it follows the monastic rule and so insistent on paying the homage to the Buddha. It must have been a Dharma practitioner before but due to its karma, it took rebirth in the three lower realm. Hopefully, after the cat dies, it will take rebirth as a human and continue to practice.

    When I was young, my parents used to bring me to the circus. I liked to go because there were animals that can do various tricks and I was totally amazed by what they can do. At that time, I found it to be very entertaining.

    Now that I know how the animals are trained to do the tricks, it bothers me a lot. It was out of ignorance that I found the circus to be entertaining. I will never go to the circus again.

    Many people like animals and love them unconditionally. Instead of buying animals, we should adopt one from the shelter. Each year, millions and millions of stray or abandoned dogs and cats are put to sleep because no one wants to adopt them.

    One reason not to buy dogs from a pet shop is because very often these puppies are bred from the puppy mill. Most puppy mills keep the mother dogs in the cage all year round, they are filthy and some exhibit strange behaviour due to stress. If people stop buying puppies from the puppy mills, fewer animals will suffer.

    明辨是非——13段影片厘清针对多杰雄登护法的偏见和误解

    这系列视频的方便之处在于它们明确地针对有关多杰雄登禁令的相关疑问提供了答案。有兴趣对禁令做进一步了解的人能直接很省时省力地根据自己的疑问得到答案。记得最初研究禁令问题时,我翻遍互联网都看不到合理的解释,虽然网路上有一些零星的评论,但若不是亲达赖尊者反雄登的,就是亲雄登反达赖尊者的,两者的说法都太过牵强,缺乏客观论证,让人难以认同。现在有了这些客观论证的视频,我们要跟任何人解释多杰雄登问题就容易多了。

    I have learned so much about the iconography of Buddhas from Rinpoche’s blog and I can understand now why we have to learn about the iconography. If we don’t know about the iconography, making offering to a Buddha becomes worshipping an idol. If we don’t learn about the iconography of Buddhas, we may reject the practice due to our ignorance. For example, if we learn the iconography of Vajrayogini, we will have doubt why a Buddha is naked and looks wrathful.

    Once we learn about the iconography of Buddhas, we will appreciate the manifestation of Buddhas in a certain form. When we share the knowledge we have learned, we can help others to clear their doubts and give them confidence in Buddhism too. When we learn more, we can benefit ourselves and others.

    It is very nice to know the army is open for religion practice and Buddhism is benefitting them. Life as an army is not easy and it is stressful. One of the ways to reduce stress is to meditate. Meditation is one of the practices in Buddhism and it is proven to be effective in calming people’s mind.

    In some countries, meditation is taught to the children at school to help them calm their mind and control their behaviour. It is said that children who meditate are calmer and are able to manage their emotion better. Some prisoners are also learning how to meditate to help them control themselves.

    Zasep Rinpoche Speaks Plainly About Dorje Shugden

    Unimpressed with wealth, fame, name or looking politically correct, Zasep Rinpoche is a devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner whose practice has been described by him as being “very close to [his] heart.” He remains loyal to the Protector practice passed to him by his masters, and is very dedicated in his determination to uphold the lineage and be of benefit to others. Having taken his practice as his life, Zasep Rinpoche also believes in the importance of respecting other traditions, and for monasteries and Dharma centres to support each other instead of being divided.

    This is such a beautiful story. When Joao found Jinjing the penguin, out of compassion, he rescued Jinjing. He made sure Jinjing has recuperated before releasing Jinjing back to where it came from. Joao didn’t expect anything from Jinjing.

    However, Jinjing remembers the kindness of Joao and comes back to visit Joao every year. Animals may not be able to talk but they can feel the sincerity of human beings. Jinjing knows that Joao is very kind and will never hurt it.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
