Support the Kechara Pastors

[Prepared by the Kechara Pastors]

A Brief History

The pastorship role was conceptualised by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. The first Buddhist Pastors were ordained on 24th October 2011 and every year since then, more have made this commitment to bring the Buddha’s teachings to people in our modern era.

Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. In addition to holding their Refuge and Pastors vows, serving others with sincerity and without a selfish motivation, they also undergo various levels of training in their spiritual advancement before they become one of Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors. The selection and training is a rigorous process, and the appointment of the Pastors must be approved by Kechara’s Board of Directors and blessed by His Eminence.

 

After Ordination

There are two types of Pastors within Kechara:

  1. Lay Pastors: people who are committed to their spiritual practice but have pre-existing obligations to family and other commitments.
  2. Sangha-to-be: people that are aspiring to become fully ordained members of the Sangha (monastic community) in the near future.

Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastors’ vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge. Pastors are ordinary people who have taken an extraordinary step in dedicating their lives towards sharing the Dharma. They have made a commitment towards their spirituality and the spirituality of others.

Eight years have passed as the Pastors continue to serve the community, in a spiritual capacity, assisting His Eminence in his compassionate and visionary works. His Eminence envisioned Pastors to create waves of merit for limitless sentient beings through their body, speech and mind.

The Pastors have the privilege of touching many people’s lives, by serving the public; Kechara members, their friends and family; as well as people all over the world through social media and a dedicated Pastors’ corner on His Eminence’s blog (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/ask-the-pastors).

 

Selflessly Serving Others

Pastors dedicate their time fully to assist His Eminence by nurturing fellow practitioners along their spiritual path. Pastors share the Dharma with others, help them with their practice and inspire them with their good example. Pastors will also prepare fellow practitioners to receive higher teachings and initiations in the future.

Besides duties and works that support the operation of Kechara’s various departments including Kechara Forest Retreat, Pastors’ duties also include, but are not limited to:

  • Performing Buddhist prayers and rituals at Kechara Puja House or offsite.
  • Performing last rites and bereavement ritual services.
  • Performing blessing ceremonies.
  • Performing marriage registration.
  • Conducting public talks and other outreach programmes.
  • Conducting various educational programmes.
  • Providing counselling in person and online.
  • Providing Dharma support and guidance to the Kechara study groups in Peninsular Malaysia.

Pastors maintain good conduct and ethical behaviour, wear his/her Pastor’s uniform with integrity and a strong sense of selfless servitude to others. Pastors are ever ready to make house calls for bereavement prayers and are here to educate the public on various aspects of Buddhist practice.

Pastors share the Dharma with others through formal classes and counselling services. Pastors also engage in public talks and other outreach programmes, sharing their knowledge with others. In this video Pastor Adeline presents an introductory talk with a Q&A session in Chinese.

Pastors are empowered by His Eminence to perform last rites and bereavement prayers for the deceased. The prayers help the deceased to have a swift and fortunate rebirth.

Pastors give regular talks on spiritual practice and how to incorporate these practices into daily life. This is Pastor David, who is also a Kechara writer with four titles published so far.

After a couple’s marriage is registered, pastors are empowered to perform wedding blessings. Pastor Chia is seen here performing a wedding blessings for a couple who want an auspicious start to their new lives together.

By keeping their vows strongly and performing many powerful prayers Pastors are able to bestow blessings for all. In this photography Pastor Han Nee is seen with a young boy, who had come seeking the Pastors blessing.

Pastors are ever ready to share their knowledge. Pastor Lanse is seen here sharing what Buddhist practice actually is and how we can benefit from it.

Pastor Yek Yee blesses birds before releasing them as part of an animal liberation ceremony held in conjunction with Wesak Day.

Pastors are trained in traditional rituals, and regularly perform outcall services, for example house blessings and the consecration of altars.

Pastors are also called upon to perform site blessings, for an auspicious start to new projects.

At events, or upon special request, Pastors conduct baby blessings and baptisms to plant the seeds of Dharma in the child’s mindstream so that they may grow up connected to the Dharma and protected by the Three Jewels.

During this event, the Pastors baptised and blessed 40 children.

One of the Pastors’ most popular services is car blessings. The Pastors bless the car through prayer and ritual and after the ceremony, the car’s owner is given a Buddha image to be placed on their dashboard.

Pastor Yek Yee performing last rites and blessing a beloved pet to take a swift rebirth, to always be connected with the Dharma.

The Pastors are ever-ready and willing to share their knowledge.

Pastor Chia explains the practice of Dorje Shugden to a group of teenagers.

Guided by Pastor Chia, the first thing the newly-married couple does is make offerings to the Three Jewels, for an auspicious start to their marriage.

Pastor Gim Lee explains Gyenze’s practice to visitors at Kechara Forest Retreat’s Gyenze chapel.

Car blessings are always very popular. Here, Pastor Henry is seen blessing a car at Kechara Forest Retreat’s Dorje Shugden Open Day.

In the Pastors you will always find a ready smile and a willingness to assist.

Pastors will perform their duties anywhere there is a need. This was taken at the Tsem Rinpoche Foundation in Los Angeles, California (USA). The Pastors who were based here, are currently operating out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    HI, I DO NOT HAVE SPACE FOR AN ALTAR AT MY ROOM. CURRENTLY AM PRACTISING THE DS DAILY SADHANA WITH IMAGES OF VARIOUS DEITIES ON MY COMPUTER SCREEN.
    I DO NOT HAVE A GURU AT THE MOMENT. CAN I ADOPT MANJUSHRI AS MY GURU? THANKS

  2. Jeffrey Skibo on Jul 20, 2020 at 4:23 am

    I am not sure where is appropriate to post this.

    I am from Phoenix Arizona, USA. I am 68. Three year ago I visited Thailand and South East Asia where I first experienced Buddhism and the profound effects upon their culture. I have been developing a growing interest and study of Buddhism since that time.

    About a month ago or so I came across Tsem Rinpoche on YouTube. I immediately felt enamored by his knowledge, speaking ability and wit. He has such presence. He is the guru I have been looking for. I then found he has passed.

    I am interested in learning/studying the Dharma. I would travel to KL now but can’t because of the travel restrictions at this time. I believe Kechara may be the place I have been looking for.

    ” 讲法师 ” 普遍大多数在基督教才可听到这称号, 但是在佛教来说, 是一个未曾听到的。慈悲的尊贵的詹杜固仁波切乘願而来, 目的为了普渡众生, 把佛陀,宗喀巴大师教诲和多杰雄登法门传播到世界每一个角落,利益众生。

    尊贵的上师运用各种管道, 让人们参与他们喜好和专长的部门,实行佛法事业,净化业障,累积功德。克切拉佛教中心拥有13个部门,共修小组,位于文冬的克切拉禅修林, 超过3千万游览次数的博客, 面子书,推特,还有前所未有过的 “克切拉讲法师 ” 制度,务必让人们在不同的管道,接触佛法。

    克切拉讲法师在克切拉团体扮演着非常重要的角色, 在尊贵的上师的加持下, 他们把佛法加倍迅速传播出去, 进行殊胜的法会,帮助往生者无论是人或动物超度,资产加持法会,佛法教学课程等等,主要就是像仁波切的宏愿,让在娑婆世界的众生们净化业障,累积功德和让他们得到佛的印记,让众生们脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐。

    愿尊贵的上师健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意,所有宏愿一一的达成,所有众生尽快脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐!

    感恩合十

    My association with Kechara Pastors started in Feb 2016. All this time I only know the word Pastor is confined only to Christianity but on a Buddhist platform it came as a surprise to me. My first contact with a Pastor was Pastor Adeline.
    My first impression of Pastor Adeline was her brightness; to me she appears demure, pleasant, and one could feel a peaceful aura when standing next to her. I cannot help wondering why such a young lady would sacrifice her youth to do this type of work; it did not hit me until much later on after viewing and visiting Rinpoche’s website, Facebook and You tube video that made me realized that these are the people commonly labeled as “the dying breed.” I can understand that many of these young people went to a religious institution because of being unable to handle life’s pressures, being a social outcast, family rejects and for very many multiple reasons or as a form of escapism. However, these Pastors as I know now is highly educated and with good family background they would be able to stand high among the best in society if they chose to lead a mundane life. An afterthought would be that they must have found some gems far much greater and valuable than all the jewels on planet earth.
    Pastor Adeline exudes pleasantness hard to describe an example would be like when I bite into a juicy apple you would not be able to understand its sweetness no matter how hard I try to explain it to you unless you choose to take a bite. Pastor Adeline has that type of qualities within her, my wife Christine always tells me that she likes to look at Pastor Adeline’s face because of her complexion in addition she could feel a deep sense of serenity whenever they meet.
    I would summarize Pastor Adeline as a personification and a live example of Rinpoche’s teachings and if I may add through these Kechara ambassadors, Kechara would have no problems in meeting and fulfilling its objectives and I sincerely hope to be a part of this journey with Kechara

    Kechara Pastors are very dedicated and they work tirelessly around the clock.
    Please give support to the Pastors for the Dharma work to grow and the teachings to flourish.

  6. Stella Cheang on Apr 4, 2016 at 11:34 am

    It is very inspiring to learn about the story of Pastor Antoinette Kass. She first met His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in 2011. Over the next four years, there were less than 24 hours of personal meeting between Pastor Antoinette and Rinpoche. Yet on Wesak Day 2015, Pastor Antoinette took a bold step forward by shaving her head and joining the big family of Kechara by becoming a Pastor.

    Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastor’s vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for this blogpost.

    Dear Pastor Adeline,
    We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to your taking care of us during our recent KFR open day visit on Dec 12th. My sister in law was very much impressed by what H.E. Tsem Rinpoche heavenly effort in setting up Kechara Malaysia and in disseminating and allowing Malaysian at large to know this lineage of Buddhism.
    It was really very enlightening sharing my thoughts with you along the trip on several aspects of Buddhism, I must congratulate you and wholeheartedly admit your knowledge in Buddhism is pretty profound.
    As you are pretty aware I am currently reading Liberation in the palm of your hand and recently purchased a book on Tsongkhapa, a simple guide to a powerful practice apart from the earlier book I purchased on If not now when. I really do find these books very absorbing.
    My sister in law is pretty keen to become a life member and also Christine is also keen to become one too. They should be visiting the Sunday dharma talk at Kechara pretty soon to get to know more of H>E Tsem Rinpoche teachings.
    Thank you once again Pastor Adeline

      Dear Sonny,

      I apologies for this late reply and thank you kindly for your kind words which humbled me further to continue learning and practising dharma. I wish very much to see Christine and sister to be in the dharma class and looking forward to having you in our big family. Please continue to learn and keep Rinpoche’s teachings at heart.

      Thank you and please take care,
      Pastor Adeline

    To become a pastor is not easy. We should support in financial or others way. Pastor dharma teaching is very applicable in our daily life.Listen and understand is not enough for us to become a good person but we must practice it.Thanks Rinpoche and pastors hard work.

  9. Lucy Yap on Oct 7, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    Kechara Pastors serve the public tirelessly with their limitless number of duties and services. With Rinpoche’s guidance, Kechara Pastors effectively fill their roles with compassion, kindness and empathy. Under the leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, Kechara Pastors maintain a high standard of behavior to effectively guide others spiritually. Please give your support to these wonderful Pastors of Kechara for their work to grow and benefit all sentient beings. Thank you Rinpoche for Kechara Pastors!

  10. Yoke Chim Yap on May 16, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    多谢上师的付出与培訓,誏克切拉跟别人不一样。我们多了Pastor可以为众生服務和讲解佛法,誏更多人更方便,容易了解佛法与得益 。还有法会,可以帮到很多人,非常棒。畢竟时代不同了,以前的人会自动去听和帮忙,而现在却是须要深入人心去弘揚。上师就像大医师,而Pastor就是實习医师。感恩上师及各位 Pastor 的無私付出。

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 9, 2015 at 12:05 am

    The pastors name is synonymous with service. And the past few years have seen the pastors render all manner of services to the public and also grow in stature in terms of their skills and ability of benefitting others.

    Thank you very much to Kechara pastors for bringing Lama Tsongkhapa to others and far and wide.

  12. SG on Feb 5, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Yes, I agree that they deserve to get all the support they can, and they are worth it. Please support them from your heart. They practice Rinpoche’s teachings thoroughly by truly immersing themselves in dharma. I pray that the pastors and pastorship grow, grow and grow more. I admire you very much. Please carry on these wonderful jobs.

  13. Tek Lee on Jan 29, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, and thanks to all the Pastors! Pastors are really like my parents (some are brothers and sisters of course :)), coz they unconditionally love us, help us, nurture us, guide us, no matter where and when. I must say this here, I love u all the Pastors! 🙂 _/\_

  14. Pastor Yek Yee on Jan 13, 2015 at 12:12 am

    在克切拉团体裡有个特殊的制度,叫作讲法师制度!讲法师制度在2011年正式宣誓执行职责,刚开始的前两年,没有多少人了解这些穿着大紫红制服的人,也搞不清楚他们可以做到甚麽,对中心奉献甚麽?经过一段时间的努力和坚持,今天凡是大家提到克切拉讲法师,每个人都会给予几分尊重。

    身为克切拉讲法师其中一份子的我,很感激上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的恩泽,给予我这样的一个机缘,藉以服务大众为善,为自己累世所留下来的无数恶业洗涤,并且储存足够的功德有望今生可以修习更高阶的持修法。

    由于,仁波切多年来潜移默化的教导,让我把“我 ”开始慢慢地缩小,将“他人”逐渐地放大,刚开始很自豪地以为自己好了不起,很伟大似的;经历多了,听的看的多了之后,感受自然多了,不知那一天脑袋的某块乌云被吹了,才勐然悟到:“一切都是上师精心的安排,只为了要我在有能力的时候,为自己多做打算,资粮银行户口多存几亩功德田。。。”从仁波切高智慧善巧用心良苦的策划之下,凡有缘到来克切拉団体的每一位都是受惠者,不管是布施或接收的,两者皆受益无穷。因为,在这样一个施与受的过程中,大家都获得了上师和佛法的加持庇护,一举两得,何乐而不为呢?

    从这样的一个双赢的制度之下,至尊宗喀巴大师的法教因应时代的需求而持续下去。仁波切从南印度到在星马这一带弘法,耗掉了整整20年的时间,只为了将格鲁巴的传承延续一代又一代。仁波切深明,如今物质横流的社会,人人都被俗事所牵绊,要在这样的环境之下培育一名出家人,无条件 推广佛法是非常艰难的事;因此,善巧的大成就者詹仁波切来一项创新且反传统的的讲法师制度,让在家的居士们弘扬佛法,让在家居士承担延续整个宗喀巴大师传承的担子;时代改变了,慈悲上师的方法也在改变中。为什麽呢?只为了顺应时代的要求和需求罢了。

    所以,若果你明白这些慈悲上师的苦心和用心,请尽你所能,支持克切拉讲法师,让每位讲法师可以无后顾之忧地执心他们的任务和上师给予他们的使命!

  15. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to have Pastors system in Kechara. I would like to thank all Pastors for their 24/7 hard work, services and guidance.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit all sentient beings

  16. Uncle Eddie on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Dharma teaches us to bring to mindfulness and compassion on what we see and feel in heart and mind! Its time for us to broaden our circle of compassion to help lighten sufferings of beings by becoming more caring and loving, and find skilful way to unbind our sense, so that suffering can be transformed into an awakened heart that can do good to the world. Under the capable and dedicated leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, working on a 24/7 throughout the year, the Pastorship squad are compassionately seen doing what are most required. Like H.H. The Dalai Lama said, “I believe that every level of society, the key to a happier and more successful World is the growth of Compassion. All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities”. Kindly, please support Kechara Pastorship programme generously to help them to carry on their sacred duties for the benefit of all Beings spiritually. Om Mani Padme Hung.

    Pastors in Kechara serves many people from all walk of life within Malaysia and internationally. They do dharma work without any complain and spend hours and hours nurturing those who are not spiritually inclined yet and those who are not located near the dharma centre. They receive emergency phone call requests at any time of the day or night and will perform any prayers or attend to those in need at the drop of pen, on requests for help or assistance.

    They are ‘real’ samaritans on the go from Kechara. They do not ask for anything in return but instead they give more than others.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit you, others, friends and family.

  18. victoria lam on Jan 4, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    I am so grateful to get sharing and learning from Kechara’s Pastors. From the gratitude and respect, i also learn how to do dharma work and serves to community. If without Pastors, I wouldn’t get to know more Buddha Philosophy from their sharing.

    Thank you very much Tsem Rinpoche and all Pastors.

  19. Hee TS on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    如何無私的講法師,他們的反應非常迅速,並24小時待命,服務须要幫助的人。即使深夜進行任何形式的祈禱。衷心的感謝和尊重Rinpoche 培養出,不知疲倦地只为他人离苦,忘却自我,而付出的講法師们!

  20. William on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    Kechara Pastors work tirelessly to benefit people in our community and also the world. Their only intention is to help others in times of need whether spiritually, emotionally or even physically. They are available all the time when their services are needed.

  21. Stella on Dec 30, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    In my opinion, people who are ordained as Pastors are selfless and they put the interest and benefits of others before themselves. From my observation, Kechara Pastors work 24×7 through out the years. It is a thankless job most of the time.

    It is therefore a privilege for us to support the Pastors so that they can reach out to more people and help those who are truly in need. I hope more people will come to realize the hard work that Kechara Pastors put in and continue to support their work.

    Thank You Rinpoche for creating this role to benefit people like us in a land that has little mass consciousness of Buddhism.

  22. Dense Kuek on Dec 30, 2014 at 1:03 am

    This is all about the blessing from Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. As your kindness, we are able to get the assistance from pastors and all the pastors in charge for different departments to spread dharma by different way. This is so rejoice to have all the pastors here in Kechara and I believe by the effort all the pastors contribute would really help people who r in suffer or who seek for spiritual guide. Tsem Rinpoche, thanks for your kindness. For all the pastors, thanks for your selfless love, really thank you.

  23. Louise on Dec 29, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    We are the lucky people in the world. Thank you Rinpoche have a Pastor system in Kechara. At the beginning it is not easy.

    But we believe Rinpoche, it is will benefit people.

    Now everyday i can see Pastor with the puja team it is so busy to helping people all around. People benifited come to Kechara helping and volunteering.

    Pastor services it make so important .

    I want to thank you Rinpoche and all the Pastors .

  24. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    My respect and gratitude too for His Eminence for creating this very innovative system of pastor-ship to help us laypeople in this time and age. This form of institutionalisation can ensure the long term perpetuation and localisation of Dharma for generations. _/\_

  25. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    My sincere gratitude and respect for the pastors who are working tirelessly and compassionately for us. _/\_

  26. Edwin Tan on Dec 29, 2014 at 4:21 am

    Indeed with the Pastors, the gap between lay people and Dharma is bridged.

    I have personally witness many accounts of how selfless the Pastors are. They respond very quickly and are accessible 24 hours, even at late hours for any sort of prayers.

    The level of their commitment to Dharma, to Rinpoche and to the community is very strong.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for forming up the Pastors.

  27. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Dec 28, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    We are so grateful that Tsem Rinpoche have implemented Pastor system in Kechara , with empowerment by Rinpoche , Kechara Pastors can help us in term of variety activities Eg marriage registration , bereavement puja..etc.we should support their works let more people can receive Tsem Rinpoche ‘s blessing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post which tells us more than that. Feeling the pain of those been slaughtered for human consumption. We should gave up eating meat , have compassion for them who cannot speak for themselves. Looking at those pictures feeling uneasy, the way those chickens , pigs and so forth were killed. We have a lot to answer for those sufferings and killing . We have a choice not to kill and to be vegetarian. Choosing to be a vegetarian is the best as there are many benefits. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Vegetarians also tend to have lower overall cancer rates and lower risk of chronic disease. Hence for health reasons we should go on vegetarian.

    In northern China, where there is a long history of consuming dog meat to ward off the coldness in the winter. They celebrates the summer solstice by throwing a festival that involves the slaughter and consumption of dog meats. Many people love the sophisticated tastes of their dog-meat cuisine. This tradition is slowly fading out as more and more people are aware of the cruelty and not a healthy life consuming it.
    Reading this blog and looking at the pictures , one could see the poor lady activist kneels down , begging the vendor to buy those dogs from being eaten ahead of the annual dog meat. What she did was incredible ,sold her family’s two houses to fund the rescue of thousands of dogs. This amazing woman has spent large amount of money, saving dogs from the Chinese dog meat festival. She has dedicated her life to actually doing something worth doing about it. Attitudes towards dog consumption in China are changing, but some of these traditions have deep roots.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Bigfoot believe may exist somewhere in the wild, but are not recognized by science. Russian president discovers ‘proof’ that fabled creature exists while on short vacation in Kemerovo region. The sighting is understood to have been confirmed by President Putin’s security detachment after they inspected the footprints. Environmental rangers and hunters in remote mountain terrain confirmed it. The Kremlin leader had witnessed’ three Yetis while on a recent helicopter trip to a remote location famous for claimed sightings. Nobody in the world has found the yeti, and it would be good and beneficial to most people. Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams in the wild. As long as there are wild places in America, Bigfoot remains a possibility that, it exist.

    Stephen William Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Well he was best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking did mentioned in an interview that, it is natural to believe God created the universe. He think science has a more compelling explanation than a divine creator. Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science. Well said by him.
    Everything we have in life is all came as a result of research either from ourselves or others. That’s true.

    The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event in which nine Soviet hikers died mysteriously in the northern Ural Mountains in 1959. A group of ski hikers led by Igor Dyatlov just perished in this remote peak. Some of them succumbed to hypothermia, but others were found with grisly injuries. No one yet comes to the conclusion what had exactly happened to them and solved one of history’s greatest adventure .The Dyatlov Pass Incident, came to be known and have inspired countless conspiracy theories, such as Yetis, and even extra-terrestrial contact with the unknown. These men and women were never heard from again. A criminal investigation at the time blamed their deaths on an unknown natural force. Sound interesting. There’s some unknown creatures or aliens maybe that cause their death i do believe., as we are not alone.

    Samaya is a set of Buddhist vows and commitments that are given when one receives empowerment in the Vajrayana Buddhist order. Guru devotion plays an important part in our spiritual practice in Tibetan Buddhism. As explained by Tsem Rinpoche our Guru we must have a good relations and good samaya with the guru. We can never be overstressed on the spiritual path or else our mind will degenerate. Breaking the samaya vows is worse than breaking any other laws. Breaking a samaya results in a heavy bad karma, especially if one disregards or dislikes, the Guru who have gave us the teachings. The Dorje Shugden controversy had cause disharmony and sufferings to many practitioners. For some of them been drifted away causing them to break their samaya then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura, a monumental outdoor bronze statue is one of the most famous icons of Japan. It sits in the grounds of Kotokuin, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. An equal opportunities Buddha, guiding all to the Pure Land, built in the mid 13th century and is the second tallest bronze Buddha in Japan. Looks stunning this statue with historical stories behind it. Love to visit and see for myself this magnificent statue.

    Yes there are many mysterious creatures everywhere this very planet. Its only that we don’t encounter before. Many mysterious creatures such as Owl man , ‘lizard man, Flatwoods monster may exist after-all. Many of them exist in the wild but scientist do not believed it exist by mainstream science. Reading this blog is an eye-opening for me. Just fantastic knowing such creatures do exist. Some of them looks scary to me like the Canvey island monster which had horse-shoe shaped feet with five toes and it had no ‘arms’. Even though its just a carcass seen on the shores of Canvey Island in England. Ferociously looking . Bunyip another creatures found in swamps which has a dog-like face, dark fur, horse-like tail and walrus-like horns. Interesting reading to know that there are some of the mysterious creatures .

    Looking at those pictures in this blog says all. Hundred thousands of monks and locals from different monasteries receiving Dorje Shugden initiation from highly attained Lamas. From one picture where thousands of tents were set up outside the monastery hosting the ceremony for the thousands of attendees. Thousands of fortunate practitioners were fortunate to receive initiation of Dorje Shugden from high lamas of the Gelug lineage . We are fortunate to read and watch those updates from Tibet and else where.

    The interest in vegan and vegetarian products is on the rise, especially after consumers become aware of the cruelty involved in producing animal-based foods. Undercover footage released shows slaughterhouse brutal treatment of animals such as pigs , sheep and so forth being kicked, beaten, and thrown into cages before they are slaughtered. The animals should be immediately slaughtered so as to spare them the pain, stress, and anxiety. Secret footage shot inside a slaughterhouse has reignited a row over animal cruelty. Its sad watching this video. As results leading animal protection organisation Animal Aid requested more CCTV cameras to be place in all abattoirs. The public do not want to see animals treated in such a cruel way . To go vegetarian will be the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing high-lighted the sufferings of animals in slaughter house.

    Generally, Buddhist teaching views life and death as a continuum, believing that consciousness continues after death and may be reborn. We’re all going to face death, so we shouldn’t ignore it. Being realistic about our mortality enables us to live a full, meaningful life. Buddhist teachings emphasize the idea that although one’s destiny is always influenced by past karma. That is, our actions in this and previous lives shape the outcome for the next life. Reading this article had me understand further . To learn ,practice Dharma is the best choice I have made. We have our Guru to thank for sharing with us the journey from birth to death. This article gave us a better understanding of what happens to us after we pass away according to Buddhism.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Palden Tenpai Nyima a native of Tibet, he was the 7th Panchen Lama of Tibet. The Panchen Lama is the second highest ranking lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan . Palden Tenpai Nyima did compiled and edited voluminous collection of tantric deity sadhanas or spiritual practices known as Rinjung Lhantab. Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas originally came from the great Tibetan scholar Jetsun Taranatha. In turn, Taranatha’s collection was based on the ancient Sadhanamala collection of works by various Indian authors. It was believed to have been compiled between the 5th and 11th centuries which can be traced back to its Indian roots. Its more suitable for higher practitioners . Jetsun Taranatha was one of the important masters of the Jonang lineage, was of crucial importance for the Shangpa Kagyu tradition who had contributed tremendously in Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David.

    Monk robes offering is the highest offering and the most meritorious of skillful deeds. The act of offering robes to the Sangha, one will be free from the suffering of hungry ghost realm and taking rebirth in the human form with complete perfect physical, attractive, conceivably pleasant and beautiful shape. Merits of offering robes to Sangha is extremely glorious. The Sangha has preserved, propagated and taught the teachings of the Buddha for centuries. As a result, millions have benefitted from their diligent effort and compassion, hence with understanding and gratitude, it is meritorious for us to offer robes to monks.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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

    5 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

Restoring the shine after rubbing! Chin Shuen and Hue are polishing the serkym set & offering bowls here. 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day @ Kechara Penang Chapel by Jacinta.
Last Monday, 28th Nov 2022 was 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day. Kechara Penang members gathered together to clean the altar, polish offerings bowls and etc. Sweeping, cleaning and arranging offerings are very important in Buddhism. In fact, it's the first of the preparatory practices as taught in Lamrim. While we clean, it's good to chant mantras or listening to it, such as reciting 'Dulpung Drima Pung' when we are sweeping.
