With more than half of its 329,758 square kilometre surface covered in tropical rainforest, Malaysia is a top nature and ecotourism destination for outdoor lovers and adventure seekers. It boasts the oldest rainforest in the world estimated at 130 million years old, the third highest peak in all of Southeast Asia (and the country’s highest at over 4,000 metres above sea level) and massive caverns believed to be among the largest in the world.

Taman Negara / Gunung Tahan

Malaysia’s Taman Negara (National Park) is located in the centre of the peninsula spread over three states, more than 4,000 square kilometres in size. It is also home to the peninsula’s tallest mountain, Gunung Tahan, with its peak at 2,187 metres.

The park’s rainforest is the world’s oldest primary forest at 130 million years old, and it is where one can find the best trails for all levels of trekking. Night jungle walks, wildlife observation hides and orang asli (aborigine) settlements are also available as standalone trips or bundled as packages.

Initially built for scientific researchers, the world’s longest canopy walkway, 530 metres long and 40 metres above the ground level, is also now open for visitors.

Getting There:
The park is best entered from Kuala Tahan, a riverside village in Pahang state, which can be reached both by bus or minivan from Kuala Lumpur or via Jerantut.

Endau-Rompin

Endau-Rompin in Johor state, the second national park declared in Peninsula Malaysia after Taman Negara, is also the second biggest in size. A home and sanctuary for a large variety of wildlife including the largest remaining population of the threatened Northern Sumatran rhinoceros, this park is a paradise for wildlife lovers.

This important nature conservation park is also famed for its wide range of rare flora and fauna. The park’s biodiversity is so immense that till today, every new expedition reveals new species of animal, insect, bird and plant life.

The park’s rivers and waterfalls are also a favourite with visitors – the Takah Tujuh Waterfalls also known as the Takah Tinggi Waterfalls is said to be the most spectacular. This seven-tier waterfall is believed by the orang asli (aborigine) people to be a dwelling place of forest spirits.

The Endau-Rompin National Park is closed to visitors during the monsoon season from November till February.

Getting There:
The park has several gateways with the two most popular being via Selai and the other via Kampung Peta. The Selai entry, being the newest, is recommended for first-time visitors.

The easiest way to get to Selai is by the North-South Expressway to Yong Peng in Johor, then travelling down the trunk road to Bekok town, where the Endau-Rompin park management office is located. Visitor registration is required to enter the park. From the management office, personal or chartered 4WD vehicles are necessary to reach the park’s visitor complex at Lubuk Tapah.

Gunung Mulu National Park

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gunung Mulu National Park is located in the East Malaysian state of Sarawak. The most important in the state, this park is crowned by three pinnacles – Gunung Mulu (the second highest mountain in Sarawak at 2,376 m), Gunung Api (1,750 m) and Gunung Benarat (1,858 m) — whose unique geological composition of sandstone, limestone and shale have, over millions of decades, formed the incredible caverns the national park is world famous for. At present, surveys have revealed over 200 kilometres of cave passages but this is thought to represent only 30-40% of the actual total.

The world’s largest natural chamber (the Sarawak Chamber), the world’s largest cave passage (Deer Cave) and the longest cave in Southeast Asia (Clearwater Cave) are some of the main cave attractions at Gunung Mulu National Park. Other sights and activities that fascinate visitors include a bat observatory (the park’s caves are the natural habitat for millions of bats and swiftlets), a 480 metre long canopy walkway, adventure caving trips, mountain climbing and trails through remote rainforest scenery.

Getting There:
The most common way to get to Mulu is by air, via Miri International Airport. Daily flights from Miri to Mulu are available as well as flights from Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. For the adventurous, express boats from Kuala Baram take you to the park’s headquarters through the Baram River.

Bako National Park

The first of Sarawak’s nature reserves, Bako National Park was formed in 1957. The park, which is fairly small in size, is highly regarded for its large variety of biodiversity. Endowed with a coastline, Bako provides visitors with a range of nature experiences including a tropical rainforest, a mangrove forest, abundant wildlife, jungle streams, waterfalls and secluded beaches. The range of attractions available in such a compact area is why Bako National Park is one of the most visited parks in Malaysia.

Every attraction has a star and at Bako, it is the proboscis monkey. Bako, a natural habitat for this endangered species which is only found in Borneo, has been described as, “the best place to see proboscis monkeys in Sarawak.”

Bako’s other wildlife stars include long-tailed macaques, silver leaf monkeys, langurs, bearded pigs, mountain goats, flying lemurs and various reptiles too. The park is also home to more than 190 species of birds.

Getting There:
Bako National Park is located 37 kilometres north of Kuching, the capital of Sarawak state. From Kuching, visitors have to make their way (45 minutes to an hour’s drive by private car, taxi or public bus) to Bako Village, a fishing village. Entry into the national park is via a 30-minute boat taxi ride from Bako Village to the park entrance at Bako National Park headquarters.

Danum Valley Conservation Area

Unlike any other in the country, the Danum Valley Conservation Area is a nature reserve that has remained largely untouched by humans for hundreds of thousands of years. It is the only nature reserve without an orang asli (aborigine) settlement — meaning that hunting, logging and other human interferences were non-existent until now.

This conservation park is teeming with wildlife and is well-known with both tourists and members of the scientific community for being the place to observe rare and endangered species such as orangutans, pygmy elephants and even clouded leopards.

The Danum Valley Conservation Area or DVCA for short is managed by Yayasan Sabah (Sabah Foundation) for conservation, research, education and habitat restoration training purposes. Only two places offer accommodation at the DVCA — one is the DVCA Field Centre built for researchers, and the other is the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, built exclusively for tourists with luxury facilities.

Getting There:
The Danum Valley Field Centre is located 81 kilometres from Lahad Datu. Shuttle buses are available from the Field Centre’s office in Lahad Datu town, close by the airport. While Lahad Datu can be reached by road from Kota Kinabalu (the state capital of Sabah), the recommended way is with a flight to Lahad Datu airport.

Mount Kinabalu / Kinabalu National Park

The Kadazan-Dusun people of Sabah believe that Mount Kinabalu, the tallest mountain on the entire island of Borneo is a sacred place. The mountain’s name is believed to be derived from the Kadazan-Dusun word ‘Aki Nabalu’ which roughly translates to ‘revered home of our forefathers’.

The 4,095-metre high peak and a large area surrounding the base is a protected nature reserve. Kinabalu National Park is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most foreign visitors to the park are there to “climb” Mount Kinabalu, which is really more of a mountain trek. Reaching the summit is achievable for most people — special climbing equipment is not required; all one needs is just a good pair of shoes, a warm jacket and a sufficient level of fitness.

Visitors intending to climb Mount Kinabalu must make bookings in advance. Only 135 climb permits are issued each day and the waiting list is long, very long — travel sites advise foreign visitors to make bookings at least six months ahead.

At the base of the mountain, Kinabalu National Park offers visitors extensive forest trails including a natural hot spring to soak in. Not far from the park’s gate at Ranau is Sabah’s largest tea plantation — Sabah Tea Garden — which offers factory tours of how this famous organic tea is produced, visits to traditional Rungus-style longhouses, and trekking in the surrounding countryside.

Getting There:
Kinabalu Park Headquarters is located 80 kilometres east of Kota Kinabalu and is reachable by road via the town of Ranau and then the village of Kundasang. From Kota Kinabalu, visitors can get to the park by private car, taxi, minivan or bus — from North Bus Terminal Inanam, all buses bound for Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau will pass the park entrance.

Penang Hill

Since the funicular railway was built in 1923 up until the late 80s, Penang Hill at an elevation of 833 metres was a favourite escape from the heat and humidity on the ground, first by the British colonial government administrators, traders and planters; then after independence, by Penangites along with visitors from in and out of the country. Until the 1980s, colonial period state-owned bungalows could be rented for weekend holidays or longer. Then, the hill gradually fell into disrepair.

Today, after a major revamp that commenced in 2010 including the upgrading of the Penang Hill Funicular Railway (one of the oldest in the world), the restoration of the Bellevue hilltop hotel and the Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan temple along with construction of new facilities for visitors which includes walkways and viewing decks — this unique Penang heritage site is once again regaining its reputation as a highlands destination.

The restored Bellevue Hotel along with its restaurant, outdoor dining terraces, gardens with pavilions and aviary will bring back fond memories for those who have visited the hill before. Newer developments include The Habitat which has, as its main attraction, a 13-metre treetop walk — a long oval walkway over the treetops with commanding views of the island below and the surrounding seas.

Penang Hill comprises of several peaks and the surfaced roads connecting them provide visitors with comfortable walking trails around the hilltops. Also known as ‘Bukit Bendera’ which means ‘Flag Hill’ in Malay, it gets its name from Flagstaff Hill, the highest peak where the heritage building Bel Retiro — a government bungalow built in 1789 for the Governor of Penang — is located.

Getting There:
There are three ways to get to the top of Penang Hill.

The Penang Hill Funicular Railway, a comfortable 30-minute ride in air-conditioned coaches, is a comfortable crawl on a track with centuries-old viaducts and splendid views of the flora and fauna. Coaches depart every 20 to 25 minutes from the station located at Air Itam.

An adventurous way to the top is with a 4WD vehicle up a 5-kilometre long jeep trail. The trail, which is also a popular hiking route, begins at the quarry near the entrance of the Penang Botanic Gardens. 4WDs can be hired from the booth at the start of the trail.

Another popular hiking trail starts from the Moon Gate, a circular archway located on the side of Waterfall Road a short distance before the entrance of the Penang Botanic Gardens. The well-marked 8-kilometre path is a steep but delightful hike through spectacular jungle.

Fraser’s Hill

Described as “unpretentious and charming in comparison to the country’s other alpine-like escapes”, Fraser’s Hill is a former British colonial hill station built over seven peaks with altitudes between 1,220 and 1,524 metres above sea level and a climate between 17°C to 25°C (63°F to 77°F).

The hill is frequented by locals and visitors for day and weekend trips and has popular attractions which include staying a night or two in one of the Tudor-styled bungalows, an authentic English tea experience complete with scones and strawberries, nature trails through cool, misty forests and bird watching. Fraser’s Hill is a major destination for bird watchers and is the venue for some of the country’s premier bird-watching events — the Bird Interpretive Centre’s gallery gives enthusiasts and visitors a look at the variety of local and migratory bird species recorded on Fraser’s Hill.

Other attractions include the Strawberry Farm, Royal Fraser’s Hill Golf Club — one of the earliest golf courses built in the country, and Ye Olde Smokehouse — a hotel and restaurant popular with visitors who come for its old-world furnishings and charm.

Getting There:
Fraser’s Hill is located about 104 kilometres, or a two-hour drive, from Kuala Lumpur. The only way to get to Fraser’s Hill is by road, with private or hired cars or minivans. There are no direct buses and there is no public transport service at the top. From Kuala Lumpur, visitors can choose two routes, the first via Kuala Kubu Bharu and the other via Bentong. There is no petrol station on Fraser’s Hill so remember to fill up your tank before going uphill!

Cameron Highlands

The biggest of Malaysia’s former British colonial hill stations, Cameron Highlands is a bustling small town with tourists, agriculture-based industries (the vegetable farms here are some of the country’s best) and tea plantations that have become synonymous with the “Camerons”.

With a summit at about 2,000 metres high, Cameron Highlands has Tudor-style bungalow hotels and other old-world English buildings that served civic functions before the country’s independence. Most notable of these are The Lakehouse (built by a retired British army officer), Planter’s Country Hotel (formerly known as Bala’s Holiday Chalet and built as a boarding school in 1934 for European expatriate children) and The Smokehouse Hotel and Restaurant (affiliated with the Smokehouse at Fraser’s Hill!).

Cameron Highlands’ tea plantations are a big draw for both domestic and foreign visitors. BOH plantations, the first to be established, is presently the biggest tea plantation in Southeast Asia. All tea plantations — BOH, Bharat and Cameron Valley — conduct plantation visits, factory tours and have tea houses for sampling plantation-fresh tea.

Cameron Highlands offers many other activities and sights — farmer’s markets, butterfly and bee farms, strawberry and various vegetable farms, and nature trails including the popular mossy forest — a rainforest blanketed with all kinds of moss thriving on the cool climate and moisture from mist clouds.

Getting There:
Cameron Highlands is located at the edge of Pahang state bordering the state of Perak. There are three major road routes to the hill destination — from the north along the North-South Highway via Ipoh, from Kuala Lumpur and the south also along the North-South Highway, and the newest route via the East Coast Expressway through Kuala Lipis and Raub.

Regular bus and shuttle services to Cameron Highlands are available from most cities and towns in the Peninsula. The bus station at Tanah Rata town is the main transportation hub of Cameron Highlands and is where visitors are dropped off. Taxis at the Tanah Rata bus station will carry visitors to prominent places for a flat fee rather than using a meter.

Located in Cameron Highlands, the BOH Tea Centre is a modern cafe and visitor centre overlooking the first tea plantation in the country and the largest in Southeast Asia.

Janda Baik

Located in the misty hills of the Bentong district between Genting Highlands and Bentong town, Janda Baik — once a small Malay village with a prominent orang asli (aborigine) settlement — has become a hip highland retreat where dozens of operators offer home-stays and chalets in mainly Malay kampung (village) style complete with organic fruit and vegetable farms.

Attracting mostly younger weekend trippers seeking a short escape from the bustle that is Kuala Lumpur, Janda Baik which is located less than an hour’s drive along the East Coast Expressway from the capital city is the ideal getaway.

The locale offers visitors pristine river waters and falls, authentic local food, forests with nature trails and surrounding hills that induce serenity.

Getting There:
Janda Baik is located about 40 minutes by car from Kuala Lumpur, on the East Coast Expressway. Taxis including ride-sharing services like Uber and Grab can be used to travel between Janda Baik and the capital city.

Unfortunately, there are no direct buses from Kuala Lumpur to Janda Baik. Visitors can get a coach from Kuala Lumpur to the town of Bentong (an hour’s journey) then hire a taxi from Bentong’s bus terminal to Janda Baik (30 minutes drive).

    It is blessed to have plenty of natural environments in a country. As citizens, we have the responsibility to protect them. As simple as be responsible with your litter. Hills and jungles should never be dumping grounds. In fact, it would be great if we can get involved in green initiatives.

  2. Bernard Ting on Aug 25, 2018 at 10:44 pm

    I’m a person who like nature, personally I visited & like Cameron Highland and mountain kota Kinabalu. I love hiking very much.
    I would like to thank Malaysia for having all these natural places. I hope all of us can work hard together to conserve & Protect this beautiful piece of land.

  3. Pastor Antoinette on Aug 24, 2018 at 9:14 am

    Being out in nature is fun and has many benefits. I really liked to read about so many places which are worthwhile to visit and spend some time. We should take some time at the weekend to go out and enjoy the fresh air, forest and blue sky and move our body and these places are just wonderful to do this. Well, have to plan now and discover.

  4. Pastor Chia on Aug 24, 2018 at 8:59 am

    I can consider myself as nature people. I like to do jungle walking as exircise. I been three hill as article mention. But like more jungle climing up to the mountain. More exïsting and adventure. Hope one day can visit all the beautiful mountain at Malaysia.

  5. June Kang on Aug 24, 2018 at 8:19 am

    Thank you for promote Malaysia. It is a very good guidance for people who like hills, mountains and hiking. Places like Fraser hill, Janda baik, Cameron Highland are good short-stay destination- Green , cooling ,beautiful nature scenery and very good place for taking break from the busy life in town。You may consider all this places if you are currently thinking a holiday and not necessary must go overseas. All these places recommended in this article are providing you a relaxing holiday and try on go Green this holiday season, a healthy holidays.

  6. Justin Cheah on Aug 24, 2018 at 3:03 am

    I am never a fan for outdoors and am not adventurous in my travels either. The best possible I can get away will be going for a holiday where civilization is prevailing. I just hate going to difficult terrains and won’t particularly enjoy forest scenaries.

  7. Tek Lee on Aug 24, 2018 at 2:03 am

    Out of the 10 hill and jungle, I only been to one. I was not a nature lover person, I didn’t like hiking and walk the hill. But I like cycling. I started to like nature when I started cycling. I rode in a few trail before. Once we started cycling in the trail, we have to finish it. It’s either turn back, or continue to finish the whole trail. It was challenging. So, through cycling, I started to love nature. Because of the fresh air, things that we had never seen before in city, the green of the plants, the sound of bird and insects. The motive is to finish cycling the whole trail, but they were added on to the pleasure of cycling. In the end of the day, I think it still depend on our motive. Like my motive is cycling, but through cycling, I started to love nature.

  8. Andrea Lai on Aug 24, 2018 at 1:50 am

    I have been to Taman Negara/ National Park for the first time and I got fascinated with the fresh cooling nature environment. Yes, I do enjoy tracking. Enjoying and exploring such beautiful nature is really fun, relax and exciting. More interesting was into jungle night walk, where you experience listening to sound of insects, searching for arachnids nests and as well as other reptiles. On day time, we will be in groups hiking to Gunung Tahan for the canopy walk. The view from above was simply amazing where you could see the Pahang River and surrounding by beautiful greens.

    After reading this article, one thing I got acknowledged was appreciation. We should appreciate what we have and blessed to be born in this loving country where there’s no war, no fighting and everybody live in peace, harmony and united. 🙏

  9. Mingwen on Aug 24, 2018 at 1:04 am

    In Malaysia & many countries have beautiful & precious forests & mountain. It’s important & everyone’s responsibility to take good care of the mother nature. We have been sucking benefits from the mother nature & seldom/never give back. It’s time to take whatever appropriate measurements to cope with problems that breaking the earth partly such as global warming & more.

  10. pammie yap on Aug 24, 2018 at 12:57 am

    I am not really a nature’s person. If given the chance to visit a jungle or a city, I would not think twice of which place to choose. I am terrified of insects as I get freaked out easily with creepy-crawlies to a point I would actually cry. LOL
    But the amazing thing is, how comfortable I was with nature when KFR first started building. Although I was terrified of the conditions then (mosquitoes, snakes, worms, etc), it didn’t bother me much. This shows how my mind chose to be picky with preferences and being petty about it. I am still terrified of creepy-crawlies but when I look and see how KFR is, it just goes away and I start to fall in love with nature here.

    • Julia Tan on Aug 24, 2018 at 8:18 am

      Pam, I can’t agree with you more of what you mentioned about city and forest. I still remember vividly when I first steped my feet on Kechara Forest Retreat when the land was still undeveloped. Now I love green, mountain and rain. Now Whenever I travel I’ll choose to hill instead of city. I’m glad my children love mountains and green too. I am glad that we has changed our interests and lives away from the cold city life to a calm and peace beautiful nature land.

  11. Vivian Ong on Aug 24, 2018 at 12:50 am

    Out of the 10 places mentioned in the article, I have only been to 2 which the Penang Hill and also Cameron Highlands. If given the chance, I would like to visit to Janda Baik and Taman Negara. It will be interesting and exciting to be close to the nature. A good place to relax the mind and breathe in the clean air from the trees.

  12. Pastor Henry Ooi on Aug 24, 2018 at 12:28 am

    I can safely say there is a big majority of Malaysians who have not visited all of these 10 hill and jungle places. I’m one of them. I’ve only been to four out of the ten: Penang Hill, Fraser’s Hill, Cameron Highlands, Janda Baik. In fact, there are so many interesting and educational places within Malaysia that almost all Malaysians have not been to. Yet we think of going abroad for holidays and sight seeing, and taking selfies. Quite ironic

  13. Datuk May on Aug 24, 2018 at 12:11 am

    Out of the 10 Hill and Jungle adventure spots in Malaysia, I have only been to 4 of them and they were the hills. Namely Cameron highlands, Frasier Hills, Penang Hill and Janda Baik. The reason could possibly be because I like the highlands more than the jungles.

    The hill resorts that I have been to in Malaysia are really very nice as I like the cool temperatures during my stay there. The green hills are also very pleasant.

    Reading of the jungle spots, I am tempted to try at least once to visit the jungles of Malaysia and if I should I will choose Taman Negara as many of my friends had enjoyed their visits there.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very informative article of knowing my country.

  14. nicholas on Aug 23, 2018 at 11:26 pm

    I always like jungle trekking since young. I love the journey of the trekking as I can enjoy the surrounding nature. For mountain or hills it excite me further as I love mountains and especially the view from the top. It’s also important for us to be respectful at such places. I believe that there is unseen being that reside there which we are unable to see. Since we are the one that passing through their place so we need to be respectful just like how we would one people to behave in our house.

    The need to respect and preserve the natural environment is never more apparent than to those who visit, explore and enjoy the landscape in which they undertake their activities. We should care about nature, living things and the environment.

    This is a good guide for the people that looking for place to spend their holiday.

  15. Anne Ong on Mar 26, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    It’s great to know there are so many wonderful places in Malaysia to getaway from the stressful and noisy city life for some peace and quietness to heal the mind and soul. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for this nice recommendation.👍😍

  16. Aldan Chan on Dec 18, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    Thank you for sharing some fun holiday places. I wish I could go to some of the locations. I`ve been to some of the places above. All the places in the article are very beautiful and amazing. Thank you for sharing.

  17. yin ping on Dec 8, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Malaysia is blessed with rich cultures and some of the oldest rain forest in the world. Anyone who is looking to escape the hustle and bustle city life, these are the places you should look into. Surrounded yourself with hills, rivers, beautiful greenery and wildlife. Being in nature sharpens and clears your mind as well as distresses your body.

  18. Irene Lim on Dec 7, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    Malaysia “Truly Asia” is truly a tropical country full of wonderful and interesting hills and mountains adventure for you to embark on subject to physical fitness. As for me I can only dream visiting these places. Another alternative is to watch documentary series from TV programme is a better bet for me.

  19. Samfoonheei on Nov 29, 2017 at 1:22 am

    Malaysia is truly a country full with natural wonders, natural jungles and parks for everyone to explore. After reading these article I could understand more why foreigners from worldwide like to look for excitement ,to explore those un touched jungles. Some of them to do research on the plants, insects and many others. Could be to search for yeti ….the hairy creatures . A friend of mine ,as a Professor and his team used to go Danum valley to do research on plants and to look for new species of animals and insects.
    I have not been to many of those jungles, parks mentioned in the article. Except Cameron Highland ,Fraser’s Hill and Penang Hill.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Kenneth Chan for sharing such a wonderful post.

  20. Freon on Nov 27, 2017 at 2:16 am

    This is a very good article summary on the Malaysia Hills, jungles and parks. Most of this places I have heard but not went to. Malaysia is so beautiful with all this natural jungle and parks, where most of them have still preserved the nature in it. As times goes by, more development getting on, to even look for these kind of places will become more less. Hopefully this parks will reserved, not only for the environment health but also these parks are home to many rare species of animals.

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.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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

I requesed His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to write out the mantra of Vajra Yogini. He immediately compassionately obliged me. This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I\'ve had this in a safe plastic wrap and wore it around my neck in a small yellow cloth \'bag\' for many years. Tsem Rinpoche

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

My Nepalese boys work hard and I appreciate them. Today we have purchased special foods for them to snack on and also to cook with so they won\'t be so homesick.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    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

Every single child is gifted and talented in a particular area. Every single one also has particular challenges. But we know that if we are patient and calm and we wear our perspectacles and we keep believing, we will eventually see the specific magic of each child. Well done and thank you to all the talented students and your hard work performance on KSDS Graduation Ceremony 2018. By Asyley Chia KSDS
