19 Jun 18, 08:09 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d2n0ql2p2897.jpg The Tibetan government in exile gave many excuses of why they banned Dorje Shugden and sadly segregated their own people due to religion and until now the rift is not repaired breaking many families apart. Instead of embracing diversity, the Tibetan government in exile further the divide. They lost their country in the first place because of this. And they cannot get their country back for 60 years because of this narrow thinking.
I've posted beautiful Sufi devotional songs and immediately this person attacks and leaves something rude. This person has attacked my Dorje Shugden related posts on Facebook with many vulgarities many times. So when I post something he automatically assumes it is about Dorje Shugden without even checking. This is what the Tibetan government in exile wanted which is to attack all Shugden people. They spread the untruths and let the crowds 'attack'. This is their modus operandi. They failed to get their country back and because of this, they need a scapegoat and blame Dorje Shugden for this to 'buy' more time at the cost of harmony within their people. Any democratic society will embrace diversity in religious faiths without question but not within Tibetan communities run by the Tibetan government in exile. So if you practice Dorje Shugden you are countering their wishes and therefore targetted. They encourage this targetting just like you see in this FB attack. It is the Tibetan government in exile who started the campaign against Dorje Shugden and they are the ones that spread the untruths regarding Shugden to incite the 'crowd' to attack if you refuse to give up and excercise your right to your choice of spirituality. Why should any leaders discourage or encourage any religion. That is biasm. No secular or spiritual leader in the modern 21st century should make any negative remarks about anyone's religion because then once that starts, there is no end and it will escalate, making more disharmony in our small world. That's how religious wars start. Give peace a chance already.
The Tibetan government in exile say they are democratic. But this is not democracy when they goad people on to attack you when you have a difference in opinion from their 'official' views even on religion. Why does any government interfere in their people's religion if they claim to be democratic? No government or leader should have any views on religion, as this is a personal matter for the individual. Give peace a chance, Tsem Rinpoche

17 Jun 18, 06:48 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dear Changzo Beng kooi and our wonderful Kechara blog team including writers, researchers and technical team,
With the deepest respects, lit incense billowing, prayers and great faith and some tears in my eyes, I have humbly published the story of Lord Atisha the incomparable for the world to read on our blog-site. I am just so happy to have Him on our blog-site. He is so holy and the guru of gurus. May all be blessed by Lord Atisha and Lady Tara by seeing this post and reading about Him. May all gain renunciation, bodhicitta and sunyata completely by studying Atisha's teachings.- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=158941
Lord Atisha's benefits, teachings, writings, presence, works, life, sacrifice and pure monk-hood really is such a jewel among jewels. 900 years later He still inspires us so much.
The pith of the Dharma is to transform the mind (within lojong teachings) and Atisha exemplified and stressed this throughout His life. Lojong brings the mind of an ordinary person to an exalted being (bodhisattva). From attachment to samsara and wrong projections to seeing samsara for the poisonous nature it really is and brings us to easily develop necessary qualities of endurance, patience, tolerance, compassion and acceptance. Lojong is a most important teaching and essence of Lord Buddha's path. The Lam Rim composed by Atisha embodies this very much. It is very much worth your time to read. It is in this post for your convenience.
Thank you all for your hard work towards such a beneficial post.
Gratefully, Tsem Rinpoche
1. I love the new tab system in this post you have where every content can be seen so easily at a glance. Makes it easier for the readers. I really want our blog visitors to benefit.
2. I love all the prayers listed by Atisha you have made available. You made it convenient for the downloadable books regarding Atisha for everyone. I am so happy to have Atisha's Lam Rim here to be accessible for everyone which is so holy. I love all the videos and I really like the gallery with many Atisha pictures of thangkas and statues. That was a nice touch. A real triumph of a post!!

17 Jun 18, 04:03 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d2mglqtv9314.jpg Protector Tsiu Marpo in a chapel in Lhasa. He is an ancient deity who legends goes back to the previous Buddha. He is here enshrined with a very enigmatic face sitting on a throne and receiving a drink offering. He also takes trance of various oracles and speaks.
17 Jun 18, 04:00 AMTsem Rinpoche: Tsi'u Marpo: History, Narrative & Myth by Cameron Bailey, December 28th, 2015
According to the Tantra of the Red-Razored One the being that would become the deity Tsi'u Marpo was born during the dispensation of the Buddha Kashyapa as the Khotanese Prince Chorwa. Chorwa is said to have had faith in Buddhism and to have taken monastic ordination. One day, when he was meditating alone in the forest, the daughter of the local king was bathing nearby when she was bitten by a venomous snake. Chorwa was able to save her life by giving her a medicinal antidote, but when two evil ministers saw this, they spread the false rumour that the monk and the princess were making love.
The king, outraged by this, sent men to kill the monk. The princess attempted to dissuade him by telling him the truth of the matter, but he did not listen, and out of protest she vowed to be reborn as the hostile spirit sister of the monk in a future life, then threw herself off a cliff, committing suicide, in protest. Chorwa, meanwhile, fled to the Himalayas, and his mind became downcast and full of evil intentions. He then proceeded to go on a killing and raping spree, but eventually the king's army caught up to him and stabbed him to death. Before he died, the monk swore to be reborn as a tsen demon, and the "executioner of all beings."
Thereafter he hatched from an egg produced from the union of a deity named "Lekpa" and a female tsen. When he was born, he had six other tsen demon brothers growing inside his body - (2) the "black obstacle might demon" in his head, the (3) "divine might demon" in his bones, (4) "rock might demon" in his body heat, (5) "knife might demon" in his blood, (6) "serpentine might demon" in his pus, and (7) "defiling might demon" in his 'messy rotten garments of flesh.' Together they became the seven wild tsen brothers.
Tsiu Marpo is a Tibetan worldly god, Warrior Class (drala), that functions as a Buddhist protector deity. The practice was popularized by the teacher Ngari Panchen Pema Wangyal (1487-1542 [P1669]). Ngari Panchen was a teacher originating from Mustang, Nepal, and he principally practised the Nyingma and Sakya Traditions. He popularised the cult of the protector deity Tsiu Marpo which was likely an adaptation of the local Bon mountain protector unique for the town of Lo Monthang called Tsengo Dragpa Gyaltsen. The mountain is located due west of the Mustang capital and Dragpa Gyaltsen remains to this day the special protector deity to the Mustang royal family. As a Terton, the principal 'Terma' Revealed Treasure cycle of Ngari Panchen is known as the Ngarpan Terdzo.
According to popular accounts, Tsiu Marpo became known as the special protector of Samye Monastery in the 17th century after the long time protector of the monastery, Pehar Gyalpo, moved to Nechung next to Drepung Monastery just outside of Lhasa. The practices of Tsiu Marpo as a Buddhist protector have now been adopted by almost all of the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

To walk to one of the Buddhas is meritorious. When arriving at any of the Buddhas at KFR, focus. Salute. Fold hands and bow to the Buddha. Rejoice in seeing the Buddha. Then reverentially circumambulate thinking to purify the negative karma of body, speech and mind by this action. While walking to the Buddha and circumambulating recite any mantras that you know. The guru mantra is most effective. Believe strongly in the Buddha you are paying homage to and circumambulating while thinking one wishes to become the same nature as one's Buddha. Think strongly and firmly, may I become one with the nature of this Buddha.
When done daily, dedicate strongly. Wonderful to do this daily. Good for the body, speech, mind and immediate health. Fortunate to be here daily. Tsem Rinpoche
13 Jun 18, 05:18 AMTsem Rinpoche: Interesting documentary on the yeti (bigfoot) in Nepal with Dawa Sherpa and a visit to his Sherpa village in the Himalayas. Dr. Jeff Meldrum shows up quite often to give his expertise in this segment. Always nice to hear from him. Very good watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9cl2kNmr3M
12 Jun 18, 09:54 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dorje Shugden being a Buddha only manifest as a wordly protector. But his nature is pure Manjushri. Therefore, any sect, any persons asking him to help or assist, Dorje Shugden will definitely do so. To say he is only for helping Gelugs is wrong. It is like saying Guru Rinpoche will only bless Nyingma students. That is wrong.
His Holiness the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu of the Drukpa Kagyu sect in Bhutan composed texts to Dorje Shugden for pujas and prayers. He wrote in his prayers to Dorje Shugden to protect Guru Rinpoche’s teachings. Of course Dorje Shugden will agree.

5 Jun 18, 06:21 AMTsem Rinpoche: 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.

2 Jun 18, 10:37 PMTsem Rinpoche: One of my favorite shows as a kid which is the Flying Nun.
During summer holidays of 2.5 months from school yearly, this show would play during the day. I would be home with a babysitter and my parents were at work. I would watch this every single day in the late mornings. The shows back in the 1970's were clean, had good stories and had good lessons to learn. I love this show very much and at that time I truly believed she can fly. I use to make similar hats out of paper with my friends and put on our heads and try to fly too!

31 May 18, 02:18 AMTsem Rinpoche: On Wesak Day I received many generous, well thought out and meaningful gifts from students, friends and well-wishers. I wanted to thank everyone for your kind thoughts and generosity. The gifts touched my heart deeply. I am always amazed at the generosity of so many people as so many gifts arrived and my space is full. I have offered all the gifts on my shrine and humbly requested the Three Jewels to bless everyone for their thoughtfulness. I always do this with all gifts I humbly receive.
One of the gifts received on Wesak Day (yesterday) was a surprise and was organized by Tsem Ladrang team and some Kechara students. It is a beautiful hand painted piece of art depicting Dorje Shugden. It was painted by a Vietnamese artist in Vietnam. I was awe-struck by the beauty of this painting. I was amazed by this beautiful artwork. I wanted to thank Ms. Sofi, JP, Sock Wan, Pastor Jean Ai, Meng Kiat, William, Chris, Pastor Niral, Pastor David Lai, Karen, Karma, KB, Beatrix, Ram, Megnath, Victor and Chin San for this beautiful Gift. I am very appreciative and moved by your planning which must of taken months for this painting to manifest and generosity. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. I was completely caught off guard and surprised.
I have made this painting available here as a high file download for free. Anyone may download this painting and print out for your shrines. I want everyone to enjoy and receive the blessings. It is a blessing to have an image of Dorje Shugden in any art form. May all beings be free of suffering and come under the protective care of Manjushri Dorje Shugden. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Please enjoy yourselves: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/yeti-bigfoot-sasquatch http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0nglaus9592.jpg http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0nglaut6876.jpg http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0nglauv3286.jpg
17 May 18, 11:43 AMTsem Rinpoche: This Ghostly Encounters series is very good. Each video has two episodes. On this particular one the 2nd episode with the guy talking about what he encountered with his flatmate is really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xiwkUGfUwo
16 May 18, 06:09 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0n5kxs69845.jpg Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don't have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche
16 May 18, 05:53 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dear everyone,
Do watch this 8 minute video. It is so nice. That's how I feel when I arrived in my guru's ladrang and in Gaden. That is what KFR should be like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwG__7Rn7Uo
13 May 18, 07:20 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0mbnorn8831.jpg
For mother’s day at Kechara Forest Retreat to collect merits:
For your mama’s health of body and mind, purchase a Loma Gyonma mantra carved on stone (one piece) from Naropa’s cave and then hold it and recite short praise to Loma Gyonma 21x (her short praise)(can get from P.David) and then offer the stone mantra to Loma Gyonma statue on her rock pedestal by Tara’s walk. Think the mantra is dedicated to one’s mother and may she have Buddha energy/imprints planted in her mind to learn/practice dharma deeply in the future or future life….That would be good to if you like….good for everyone to do this on Mother’s and Father’s day and anyone’s birthday……….Tsem Rinpoche
Praise to Loma Gyonma
I prostrate to You, the illusion-like Wisdom,
Which arises out of the miracle of all the Buddhas
Whoever does the practice of this Goddess
Pacifies forever all illness, evils and obstacles.
Visualize golden lights from Loma Gyonma in front of us. The lights come towards us and hit us in the various parts of our body that are diseased or require healing. Think strongly that the disease(s) is expelled from our body and our body is filled with light which is Loma Gyonma’s enlightened energy.

13 May 18, 06:18 AMTsem Rinpoche: See how this interesting oracle takes trance. While in trance, she cleans herself, then dresses herself and then does prayers and then sees people. She does divination by throwing rice on her damaru surface and answers their questions. She sucks diseases out and spits out slimy liquid she has extracted from the patient without making an opening on the skin. She is highly skilled healer while in trance. This is in Ladakh. Very nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AER1uxNDu6c
11 May 18, 12:01 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0ls2ux16406.jpg Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it's a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri's practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri's intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial. Sacred mantra of Manjushri: Om Ah-Ra Ba-za Na-Dhi
11 May 18, 11:53 AMTsem Rinpoche: This is an interesting paranormal ghost documentary. It's an older documentary but still made very good. Must watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpWVITSsWyk

I wish him well always. Tsem Rinpoche
9 May 18, 02:47 PMTsem Rinpoche: What my mom shared with me as a young boy that I carry with me till now. She was very caring and giving when she was well: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=160069 http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0jka8136123.jpg
8 May 18, 10:35 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9d0jau70i8273.jpg A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924
Remember those wonderful Carlos Castaneda books? I use to read them many years back in my room back in New Jersey as a kid. His learning journey with Don Juan was amazing! Those books inspired my commissioning of this beautiful Aztec Dorje Shugden. May you be blessed. Tsem Rinpoche
6 May 18, 04:47 PMTsem Rinpoche: Have some wonderful first time visitors who are relatives of a close student visiting Kechara Forest Retreat today. Will do some prayers for them for some clearance of mind and body energies for them and present beautiful dharma gifts to them. It will be a great pleasure for me to give them some light sharing on Dharma. May they always be protected and walk in Buddha's path. Tsem Rinpoche
6 May 18, 04:46 PMTsem Rinpoche: Today will be meeting some old friends I met over 20 years ago. We've been in touch but lately we've all been busy. It will be nice to see them, do some prayers and present some gifts to them. Of course a nice dinner will be offered to them also. How pleasurable it is to offer dharma gifts to friends. Tsem Rinpoche

2 May 18, 03:28 AMTsem Rinpoche: Waves of faith, gratitude and a feeling of closeness pervades my mind and body towards you my Lord Dorje Shugden. The feeling comes in a wave at this moment. I wish to be always with you and merge with you. In all my lives may I meet you and hold you the centre of my lives.~Tsem Rinpoche
28 Apr 18, 03:14 PMTsem Rinpoche: It is so kind of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to recognize the China-backed Panchen Lama as an emanation of the previous Panchen Lama. This is such a stunning and remarkable statement and change of events! Dalai Lama also mentions that the China-backed Panchen Lama has a very good teacher implying it will result in a very good learned student. China-backed Panchen Lama is very learned.
This recognition by His Holiness the Dalai Lama of the China-backed Panchen Lama will settle many doubts, issues, disharmony and problems. It is very kind of Dalai Lama to do this. A few years back Dorje Shugden oracle already told me personally the China-backed Panchen Lama is a real Panchen Rinpoche and there should be no doubts. Now it has come out true with the confirmation of Dalai Lama. I rejoice in having both Panchen Rinpoches. One will occupy Panchen Rinpoche’s seat (throne) as stated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the other one will work to benefit others.
The Panchen Rinpoche Gendun Chokyi Nyima recognized by the Dalai Lama is alive and well according to Dalai Lama himself which is wonderful news. Dalai Lama said very reliable sources informed him of this. Now the many activists around the world who have campaigned for Panchen Lama Gedun Chokyi Nyima for news of him can relax and not worry about the Panchen Rinpoche Gendun Chokyi Nyima any more. He is alive and well.
China will be happy with this stunning announcement of Panchen Rinpoche by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and let’s hope China allows Dalai Lama to visit Tibet/China. Dalai Lama has mentioned many times recently he wishes to visit. Dalai Lama also wishes to not only visit but return to Tibet and live there with the Chinese and his people.
I have said many times that the Tibetan leadership must make friends with China in order to accomplish the peace and prosperity of all Tibetans. Now it is finally happening. As India gets to be friendlier with China, it is important His Holiness the Dalai Lama makes great efforts to befriend China. Tibetans around the world must support His Holiness’s wishes by not berating China and also extending a friendly hand to China. We must make friends with China during the lifetime of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in order to fulfill his wishes.
Long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Long live His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche (both). May there be peace and prosperity for Tibet and China and the world.

28 Apr 18, 02:28 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9cyt4term7874.jpg H.H. the Dalai Lama’s sudden change of mind about China-backed Panchen Lama is incredible and stunning. His Holiness's new stance will bring more harmony, peace and understanding. I thank His Holiness the Dalai Lama very much for this. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche (Please read here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=159261 )

18 Apr 18, 07:36 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9cyoohq2q5277.jpg I will never forget you Justin Ripley. I wish you were here in KFR in the greens, quiet, blessings and spirituality where in the long run we will be fully balanced in mind and body by being here. I know you would have loved this place because you are a spiritual person and with wisdom. Many people miss you and love as I do. (flower) You have my prayers always.

11 Apr 18, 12:38 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is educational and interesting. Skip over the first few minutes which is in Spanish and the English will come on if you are an English speaker. Please have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynhVVAXQ6Qg&t=195s
8 Apr 18, 06:14 AMTsem Rinpoche: Yesterday evening, I was able to give some teachings to a group who were in Dukkar and available while watching a video on a teacher from the Sikh tradition together with the group. We were able to touch upon several subjects such as reincarnation and further examples of it, surrendering to the higher self, the outer and inner guru, concept of time, sadhana, other realms, the obstacles to higher states of mind and a few other subjects. I found it to be an interesting interaction with our students. Most of the people in the group can grasp the subjects I shared with them and it also prompted them to think deeper which I enjoyed tremendously. [b
It was nice to see people's knowledge increase and expand. With more knowledge, we can change our destinies. It is easier when our students are nearby and I can have impromptu talks and teachings. May learning lead to change and attainments, Tsem Rinpoche April 8, 2018
30 Mar 18, 01:11 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9cwwavacm7218.jpg
I use to love to work 'under a tree'. I really love it so much to be in nature and outdoors. In Malaysia, I cannot be in the humidity or my rashes worsen. So I usually have to bring nature 'indoors'. I wish to have this again.
28 Mar 18, 08:40 PMTsem Rinpoche: Blessings to all by great masters of all faiths.
By watching Baba Sawan Singh Maharaj Ji of Punjab, India you can feel his simplicity, compassion and attainments of a higher reality. All religions if practiced correctly can bring us to higher levels of consciousness. Religions are not superior or inferior but many paths up the same mountain. I have these three short videos of this great Sikh master and watching him fills me with joy, inspiration and blessings. Within his videos, read the beautiful teachings he gives on Guru devotion and how it brings us to higher levels of the mind. Plse watch also.

28 Mar 18, 07:20 PMTsem Rinpoche: The story teller is amazing. The story itself brings tears. The simplicity of the moral of the story is penetrating. One must listen and listen carefully without distraction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fAb5TQ8s7M
28 Mar 18, 06:09 PMTsem Rinpoche: Yaduvendu's Astonishing Reincarnation Story-This is not very long, but well explained and very interesting. How a beloved brother returned as the man's son as the boy grew 'proved' he was the reincarnation of the brother. Must listen to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkhkGxjXm0M&feature=youtu.be
