A special day which comes just once a year. At Kechara Forest Retreat this years (2013), we are celebrating Lama Tsongkapa day!!

Lama Tsongkhapa is known as the founder of the Gelug lineage in Tibetan Buddhism but changed the whole landscape of Buddhism in Tibet, China, Russia, Kalmykia, Mongolia and Nepal. Tsongkapa’s influence, writings, practice and teachings brought a complete renaissance to the face of Tibetan Buddhism in which we can still feel the beneficial effects today all around the world 600 years down the road.

Lama Tsongkapa was born in 1357 in the Tsongkha valley of Amdo province in northeast Tibet. It is through Lama Tsongkhapa’s great wisdom and compassion that he ushered in a renaissance within Buddhism as it was practiced in Tibet. Like Buddha Shakyamuni and many enlightened teachers, Lama Tsongkhapa also performed many great deeds… among them are the building of Gaden Monastery, the establishment of the Great Prayer Festival and the composition of the many great texts such as the Six Yogas of Naropa and the Lamrim Chenmo, also known as “The Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment”.

People gain great faith and trust in Lama Tsongkhapa not because he is renowned as the Second Buddha of our fortunate aeon, but because of the effectiveness and results people have achieved by practicing his teachings. Out of great compassion, Lama Tsongkhapa himself underwent extreme training in studying both sutra and tantra, and did millions of purification practices, so that by example, we understand the importance of study and practice in order to generate Bodhicitta.

Lama Tsongkhapa Day commemorates Lama Tsongkhapa’s attainment of enlightenment. It is also known as the Butter Lamp Festival, and on this auspicious day, thousands of people around the world make offerings and sincere prayers. It was said that on this auspicious day, every good deed one does multiplies one’s merits by a million fold.

Here in Malaysia, Kechara celebrates our main Yidam Tsongkapa every year, and for the first time, our celebration is held at Kechara Forest Retreat. I heard from my students that many people traveled from all over Malaysia to participate in both the morning meditation and Lama Chopa prayer. How wonderful that Malaysians understand the significance and importance of Lama Tsongkhapa Day!

Over 300 people joined in the celebrations, and brought along dishes for a potluck lunch and took part in performances. I am very happy to see so many people dedicated to Dharma and would spend their precious weekends befittingly. May Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching and lineage grow and bless all in the ten directions.

With prayers,

Tsem Rinpoche

    Great way to generate merits and remember our founder of Gelug lineage. Wonderful pictures.

    Thank you Rinpoche

  2. Lucas Roth on Jun 11, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    KFR is so amazing, sadly i wasn’t there :(. It looks like everyone had a great time on that auspicious day which is good! KFR is the right place to hold an event like this. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 21, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    Lama Tsongkhapa day is the day whereby we celebrate the founder of our Buddhist Traditions birthday. Rejoice that despite the distance from KL, many people from all over came to pay respects to Je Tsongkhapa.

  4. Sean Wang on Jan 4, 2014 at 3:17 am

    It is so amazing to see KFR opened to do such wonderful on prayers on such auspicious days. Lama Tsongkhapa Day is one of my favourite Buddhist festivities as it is extremely auspicious and I had my refuge vows taken on that day. The KFR staff have shown that they have done a lot for this occasion and were extremely diligent and devoted to Rinpoche.

    This great special day, “Lama Tsongkhapa Day” was celebrated this year,2013 at our Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) at Bentong, Malaysia, where more than 300 people from all over Malaysia came to participate! Kechara Forest Retreat is built to provide a unique opportunity for many to experience a sustainable spiritual lifestyle in cultivating mindfulness through yoga, meditation, gigong and to do intensed retreats for a peaceful and healthy personal growth. Building places of worship have traditionally being accepted as a meritorious practice in spiritual faith. KFR will be considered a legacy for future generations, so in this respect, KFR is actively seeking sponsors, helpers, motivators, contributors and volunteers to help them to complete this project for the benefits of all beings!

  6. Albert Ratchaga on Dec 28, 2013 at 4:14 am

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a great saint who chooses to benefit people with his life, with his great wish and greatest action, he practice Dharma whole life and he gained enlightenment so he can continue to help and save people who are still soaking in this sea of suffering.

    We do not pray to a Buddha to make us more greedy, but we pray to a Buddha so we can gain their quality to walk out from samsara, and that will be the real happiness, everlasting happiness.

  7. Julien Roth on Dec 25, 2013 at 12:50 am

    This is indeed a special day. I am so gald that we all are there to celebrate such an amazing and memorial day. And i am glad that this day has touched many people. Thank you for sharing this with us, and i hope that many people come to this post and see this so that hopefully they will have the chance to join the next Tsongkhapa day.

  8. Wylfred Ng on Dec 22, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    I am very happy that i am able to involve in the Lama Tsongkhapa Celebration this year. And this day also is a very important day for me because, the first activity that i join in Kechara is Lama Tsongkhapa Day 2012. And this day mark my 1st year anniversary in Kechara.

    I am very because the Lama Tsongkhapa Day celebration take place at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is a history for Kechara.

    Hope that we will have more activity at Kechara Forest Retreat in the future.

  10. AdelineTan on Dec 21, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    It was a beautiful bright sunny Sunday yet not hot in Kechara Forest Retreat on Tsongkhapa Day. More than 300 people attended this memorable event for the first time held in Wisdom Hall in KFR. Butter lamps brightly light up on Lord Tsongkhapa altar and its surrounding areas together with beautiful flowers offerings.
    Happy to see many new faces who came here for the first to pay homage to Tsongkhapa and may He blesses everyone that comes here on this auspicious day!

  11. The Karmavore on Dec 19, 2013 at 7:45 am

    Awesome to see all the different activities that went down at KFR on Lama Tsongkhapa day and the fact that people sent in many light offerings from different countries around the world is wonderful.
    Thank you for sharing all the photos. Out of all the photos the photos I liked most were the kids that took part in the event because it is very important to plant the seed of Dharma in their life at a young age. I remember Tsem Rinpoche giving a talk and explaining how important it is to start doing dharma now and not waiting until we think the conditions will be perfect to get serious learning about dharma and being involved in it. These days by the time children grow up to be teenagers they are already bombarded with so many distractions in their mind and so it may be hard for them to want to learn anything spiritual. That’s why it’s so important to teach kids from a young age to be spiritual and then it becomes a natural part of their everyday life.
    Some people like me say they will get serious with dharma some day in the future but it doesn’t always work out because we have a lot more of responsibilities, attachments and obstacles to overcome the longer we put it off. We should listen to Tsem Rinpoches advice and not wait any longer to get serious because it’s much easier to start now if we think about it.

    Good on the parents for taking their kids to the event and the Kechara organisation for making it all possible.

  12. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Dec 18, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you Admin for this write up and post, I enjoyed recalling the fruitful event by looking at those beautifully taken pictures. It’s rejoicing to see about 300 peoples turned up for the event, looking forward to more happening events going on in Kechara Forest Retreat.

  13. Jutika lam on Dec 18, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    This year’s Tsongkhapa Day was definitely one of the best and most wonderful Tsongkhapa Day ever celebrated in Kechara!!!

    One of the main reasons this year’s Tsongkhapa Day celebration was the best was because it was celebrated within the premises of our very own Kechara Forest Retreat!

    It was great to see so many people coming from different countries as well as states such as Kuantan and Johor Baru happily touring around The Wisdom Hall, Dukkar Apartments as well as offering candles, flowers and prayers to Tsongkhapa.

    It also heart warming to know that everybody who came far and wide left with seed of the Dharma planted in them!

  14. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 18, 2013 at 3:46 am

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, I was very fortunate to have able to make it to KFR to celebrate Tsongkhapa day along with 300 attendees. It was a very peaceful and blessed day, I’m very glad that there were more than 300 wonderful people, I felt very happy and glad when I saw those new faces.

  15. Felix Kong on Dec 17, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    This is very meaningful day, 1st celebration Lama Tsongkhapa day at Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR)and more than 300 peoples came here to join mediation, Lama Chopa prayer and make offerings to Lama Tsongkhapa. So happy that i able to bring my family visit KFR and make an offering at this special day.

    May more peoples visit KFR and be blessed by Three Jewels always. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and may Rinpoche Long life and healthy.

  16. May Ong on Dec 17, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    Lama Tsongkhapa Day celebration is a need to many of those. He was a brilliant scholar and teacher. Without him, there may be degeneration of the Buddha dharma in this world. Also through the kindness of Tsem Rinpoche, we have a retreat place in Malaysia called Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong for over 300 people to celebrate it together.

  17. Adrian Cho on Dec 17, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    This is a very auspicious day, that those people’s was so blessed at Kechara Forest Retreat and they can make candle offering to Buddha, for them to collect good merits.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing all this nice pictures.

  18. Sharon Ong on Dec 17, 2013 at 10:43 am

    It was such a memorable celebration for me and my boys as this is the first Lama Tsongkhapa Day celebration in KFR. Was very priviledged to be able to cook in the beautiful large, airy kitchen in Dukkar Apartment for the potluck lunch. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos, Rinpoche. Hope that the next Lama Tsongkhapa celebration I would have the honour of offering you some of my humble cooking to sample.:)

  19. keng tan on Dec 17, 2013 at 9:20 am

    Amazing KFR – thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us and KFR is undoubtedly the place to be to ‘chill out’ from the secular world. Sometimes it is really necessary to ‘lock’ oneself away from the hustle and bustle of the busy everyday life to focus on self thoughts and mingle with like minded people. KFR staff are very diligent and friendly and motivational. Great place.

    Dalai Lama says ‘too many’ refugees in Europe

    I find it so strange that the Dalai Lama should say this, don’t you? After all, the Dalai Lama and his fellow Tibetans in exile had been refugees for like 60 years? And still in refugee camps in India. So why would he make such a statement regarding refugees in Europe when India is still living with 80,000 Tibetan refugees? Find out more of what the Dalai Lama had said and do share with us your opinion in the comment section below the article.

    The International Mountain Museum is a museum located in Pokhara, Nepal. This expansive museum is devoted to the mountains of Nepal, the mountaineers who climbed them and the people who call them home. It is a showcase of various aspects of the Himalayas mountaineering and has a library with lots of interesting different objects on display for locals as well as tourist. Such as rock samples, information on the reclusive yeti, pictures and stuffed replicas of flora and fauna of the area. There is also a gallery featuring equipment, clothing, professional climbing ropes, and photographs of famous mountaineers. Interesting read and those rare old pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow…..Namche Bazaar is the staging point for expeditions to Everest and other Himalayan peaks in the area. It is also is a prosperous market town selling everything from Tibetan artefacts to trekking and climbing equipment for tourist. Its also famous for its homemade yak cheese and butter. As it is situated on the slope of an arch-shaped mountain, one could see the beauty of glorious mountain peaks throughout the valley, day and night.
    This relatively small town is a gateway to the Himalayas of Mount Everest for many …….as a bustling tourist zone as well. Namche Bazaar is renowned for being the first acclimatization spot on the way to Everest region trekking. Would like to visit this beautiful place someday.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share with us various large Buddha statues in Malaysia. It is nice to know that Malaysians also appreciate large Buddha statues which are highly beneficial to the entire area where it is located.

    One of the main reason for large Buddha statues to be built is to calm the land. Leishan Giant Buddha is one of the examples of an outdoor Buddha statue that is purposely created to calm the environment down. The Buddha statue is carved from a cliff and it depicts Maitreya Buddha who is very popular in China. The statue overlooks a river which has turbulent waters that caused alot of problem for shipping vessels that travels down the river. After the Buddha statue is being made, the water of the river did calm down. This is just one of the examples.

    Large outdoor Buddha statues are also built to bless the sentient beings that reside in that area. Humans or animals that can see the statue will be planted with Dharmic imprints that will benefit them in their future lives when they are triggered. Unseen beings around the area will also be blessed and pacified by the Buddha statue. That is why having a large outdoor Buddha statue is very beneficial.

    Have you ever wondered why we should make offering to the Sangha members? The Dharma is still available to us after Buddha Shakyamuni’s passing 2500 years ago because the Sangha members have been keeping it alive. The Sangha members study and learn Buddha’s teachings and then teach the Dharma to other Sangha and lay people like us. To support the Sangha is actually to support the continuance of the Dharma. If there is no more Sangha because of lack of support, the Dharma will also disappear. Since we have so much secular commitment and we are not able to dedicate our lives to spreading Dharma, we should support those who give up their secular lives to uphold the Buddha’s teachings.

    Why do we make water offerings to the Buddhas? Water offering is an easy and great way to help us to generate merits. We need to have merits in order to support our spiritual practice. By making water offering, we are cutting down our miserliness and is a direct method to create wealth and purify poverty.

    Piriformis syndrome is an uncommon neuromuscular disorder that is caused when the piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is a flat, band-like muscle located in the buttocks near the top of the hip joint. Piriformis syndrome can be painful, but most people respond well to treatment. It is characterized by hip and buttock pain and many of the causes is still unknown. Piriformis syndrome is effectively treated with physiotherapy and medication in most cases.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear insight of Piriformis syndrome.

    Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to Insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhism, religion and philosophy that developed from the teachings of the Buddha. Hence there are many places of worship for Buddhists, where Buddhist temples come in many shapes. As listed in the articles , those temples were built in the early centuries were indeed ancients and beautiful. The best known are the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Boudhanath in Nepal, Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, India, Borobudur Temple in Indonesia and Wat Arun Bangkok, Thailand. Wish I could visit some of the wonders of the Buddhist world.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Dorje Shugden’s help is very swift and effective, that is why Tsem Rinpoche spreads and promotes Dorje Shugden practice so heavily. He has benefited from the practice himself and he wants us to be helped too. Dorje Shugden arose about 400 years ago, his manifestation is to help modern people to remove obstacles and help the practitioners in their spiritual practice.

    Many people think since the majority in Kelantan are muslims, there will not be many Buddhist worshipping sites. You will be surprised then! There are 3 large Buddhist temples in Kelantan, there are Wat Machimmaram, Wat Pikulthong and Wat Photivihan. Wat means Temple or place of worship. One of the temples houses the largest sitting Buddha statue in Southeast Asia. The statue is about 30m in height and 47m wide。

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.

It says when the Buddha was born, all the gods, demigods and asura came to pay homage. Buddha proclaimed it will be his last rebirth in samsara. Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu all came to make offerings to a Universal Monarch (Buddha) during this most auspicious time. This is one of the depictions of that. Tsem Rinpoche

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

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

DID YOU KNOW? One group of the beneficiary groups our #surplusfood programme really want to target are actually children. Based on our stats, 90% of the #children from the poor we are serving do not have enough or literally no money to spend for food in school. Hence the bread we are giving them are very #useful. So when #children don't have enough food to eat, they tend to have problems concentrating in class & that's the main reason why they tend not to do well in school. Without education they are highly unlikely to break their #poverty cycle. #Facts #BreakTheChains #foodbank #studies - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
