14 Dec 17, 02:04 AMTsem Rinpoche: His Excellency the Prime Minister Modi of India comes from a very poor family and he was a tea seller on the railroad tracks when very young to supplement income. His mother had to clean, wash and help the neighbours to earn extra to support the family. The Prime Minister is extremely humble and talks emotionally about the struggles of his mother. Very moving and very beautiful. I wish all can have parents such as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdMK7SDZ3gg
13 Dec 17, 05:56 AMTsem Rinpoche: Very nostalgic, one of my favorites shows when I was very young in the lazy hot summers of Howell, New Jersey. Some of my neighborhood friends use to watch also and we'd talk about it. I use to watch this daily and I really believed she can fly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM5qVC7X2iA&list=PLd3mznX9aRZSQmltzxfGvJTbxZjSm8VpL

This Iranian movie cannot be missed. It's the absolute best & scenery is beautiful. Rural areas of Iran is beautiful.
12 Dec 17, 11:05 AMTsem Rinpoche: This is such a fascinating, well researched and highly intelligent documentary on how some religions and modern free masons have borrowed so much from the Egyptian religion's belief system and we see traces of this all over the modern world and modern religions. Very interesting. According to this documentary, one of the borrowed iconographies was of the Madonna and Child is originally Isis holding Horus and gives reasons for it. Very interesting and a good watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSKzpOj-VVU

11 Dec 17, 11:53 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zp59phl33965.jpg This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.
9 Dec 17, 01:24 AMTsem Rinpoche: By practicing the religion of my choice I had to learn to accept to be hated, not to be loved, to be the butt of jokes on social media, to be alienated from friends, attacked, threats, to be avoided, called names, to have people go away whom I’ve known for years, accused of things I didn't do, judged, expelled, ostracized, segregated and to have pure hate directed at me. This is just because I practice a religion not endorsed by the Tibetan leadership. The irony is the Tibetan leadership always calls for unity of mankind, interfaith gatherings, compassion and tolerance. So much hatred directed at me from people I don't even know just because of my choice of religion. I've never hurt anyone because of my religion and I never will but I must continue my practice of my religion. It is right for me and many others. It is my reason to continue, because it’s right for me. No one should say any religion is bad because that creates segregation and isolation and hatred. If we allow that, then people can extend that discrimination and find excuses to say your color, race, background, culture, gender, sexual orientation and so on are not right. Discrimination is bad in any form. Don’t be a part of it. It is impossible for everyone to be all the same. Allow diversity for the sake of peace, understanding and happiness. When we allow this discrimination, it opens the doors to so much more variety of discrimination. We cannot allow more discrimination but we must find commonality and unity as human beings.~Tsem Rinpoche

5 Dec 17, 07:23 AMTsem Rinpoche: This is a 4 part series of conversations between two doctors talking about research on reincarnation. So many cases they talk about match what Tibetan lamas speak about in recognition reincarnation cases. These doctors talk about many incidentals that occur in reincarnation found in research and matching of data. Incidentals such as remembering the language of one's former life clearly, recalling the names clearly of close persons from previous lives, remembering how and where the person had died in a former incarnation, even having very similar appearance to a previous life. Also giving 'announcing' dreams in which the person to take rebirth will give signs clearly indicating who they are who will enter the mother to be. Mothers of these people who reincarnate are given 'announcement' of the child entering their womb by way of dreams. The mother will dream or have indications of the person entering their womb by way of these 'announcing' dreams. It's only later the child is born and speaks that this dream by the mother is recalled by the mother. This indicates certain beings who reincarnate have control of the next incarnation they wish to take and the mother they wish to enter. They indicate to their mothers-to-be who they are. They announce. This was recorded in the researcher's data. Same within the Tibetan system, where the mother has dreams indicating the person or spiritual level of the person entering her womb while pregnant. The doctors and researchers speak about this and so much more on reincarnation due the vast amount of meticulous data collected and the Tibetan lamas speak about this due to experience and generations of observations passed to them from previous generations. This is a must watch 4 part series and will enhance your understanding of reincarnation and it's process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeWhAfiWSdY
4 Dec 17, 08:42 AMTsem Rinpoche: Working with people who have no passion or drive for anything except basic human activities is a sign we should move on. Working with people who need to be reminded many times of what their duties are or listening to their explanations of irresponsibility are signs of the need to move on. Forgive them but move on. Sometimes they just don't have the imprint to do more.
1 Dec 17, 08:24 AMTsem Rinpoche: Such a special documentary and very touching to see how people live and the host lady is very understanding of these people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1pHnOACMtk
28 Nov 17, 11:22 AMTsem Rinpoche: There are two episodes on this and they are both very interesting:
I like this series very much. TR
27 Nov 17, 09:23 AMTsem Rinpoche: Throughout my life, I knew I needed love. I looked for it. Family love. But I never felt I deserved it. I never believed anyone can love me and love me all the way. So far I have been right. I have not met anyone that has loved me and it's lasted a lifetime that I am aware of. I have given love to many and generously, but how much I am loved in return is not fathomable. I don't continue to look for love as I know it will not happen in this life. But it would be nice to know how genuine love does feel. Unfailing love.~Tsem Rinpoche
27 Nov 17, 09:15 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zncc0xes2917.jpg In this life, I've had three mothers. One is my birth mother whom I had a relationship with for a short while of a few years. The other two mothers were step-mothers as I got adopted here and there. All in all at one time or another I was told they were my mothers. Although I had three mothers, none of them ever said I love you to me even once that I can remember throughout my life.~Tsem Rinpoche
27 Nov 17, 07:49 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zncbyejl4809.jpg
A home is a place where you feel safe, where you really belonged, the people wanted you there, you wanted to be there, they will be by you no matter what happened, you were loved, the love was timeless and genuine and perhaps you always feel a sense of care. You can care back and it was deeply accepted and appreciated. You had their support and you gave support. You were loved even if you were not the same DNA as them. A place with love. I've never had that in this life. I've never had a home.~Tsem Rinpoche
27 Nov 17, 07:15 AMTsem Rinpoche: Nothing is ever going to be perfect, reliable or sustainable in this world. The world and everything in it are made up of causes and conditions that are fragile and impermanent. Because of this nothing is solid, real or lasting. Realizing this truth is a long and hazardous journey and to many unacceptable. But I do dream of one day soon I do not have to fight the stigma against Dorje Shugden's practice or being a practitioner of His path. To live in this imperfect world, with my imperfect self with some sort of life that has semblence of quiet, peace and latitude.
My practice of Dorje Shugden has been pure, genuine and really my own spiritual quest. I've never had any 'otherwordly' or wrong motivations for practicing Shugden. My only motivation is spiritual and it always will be. It would be wonderful to wake up one day soon and live the rest of my short life in peace, not having to be on guard, not to have to peacefully fight for my dignity to practice my religious choice and not be stigmatized for being who I am spiritually or for my choices in spirituality. I do not like conflict. I don't make conflict but it's created by others and makes so many suffer. I do not like to strategize, plan or be an activist for my freedom of religious practice. I've never grew up wanting to fight for any particular worldly cause except my liberation from mundane worldly existence, but dreamed of a peaceful life in the mountains and in the monasteries. This was not to be. Daily I have to be a peaceful activist for my rights and the rights of tens of thousands of stigmatized Dorje Shugden practitioners. But I hope it will be soon it will be concluded favorably.
I hope I can feel the breeze of gentle wind, feast my eyes on a emerald forest, see crystal lakes, feed animals in the wild and offer incense to the spiritual being of my choice without another man, woman or organization saying I am bad for doing so. To live peacefully in the forest connecting to the divinity of my choice. I hope I can stop campaigning for my rightful human dignity to choose my religious path in the very near future because the people who create this unnecessary stigmatization will realize and stop. I need to rest. I long for the emerald of the forest. ~Tsem Rinpoche
26 Nov 17, 09:39 AMTsem Rinpoche: Incredibly interesting documentary on Chinese culture. The Daming Palace ("Palace of Great Brilliance") was the imperial palace complex of the Tang Dynasty, located in its capital Chang'an. It served as the royal residence of the Tang emperors for more than 220 years. Today, it is designated as a national heritage site of China. The area is located northeast of present-day Xi'an, Shaanxi Province.
26 Nov 17, 06:49 AMTsem Rinpoche: I loved reading the story of this sacred Japanese tantric monk Kukai who performed miracles. I loved the pictures and illustrations very much. It is so inspiring… A must read: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149502
I hope one day I can visit his huge temple on Mt. Koya in Japan and to pay respects to Kukai’s remains interred there. His remains is very holy. After death Kukai ascended to Tu****a heaven to be near Maitreya Buddha.
May I always be born near a qualified tantric guru and near the holy sincere sangha in all my lives…and practice with perseverance.
26 Nov 17, 02:29 AMTsem Rinpoche: A gorgeous Dorje Shugden painted in traditional art style of China. Chinese art has flourished for over 5,000 years and highly sought after. This form of Dorje Shugden is sitting on a seat as you see painted in his chapel (Trode Khangsar) in Lhasa, Tibet. Dorje Shugden can be on a seat or Lion.

He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k
15 Nov 17, 09:34 PMTsem Rinpoche: Being creative and making things around us interesting makes life so much more bearable.~Tsem Rinpoche
Spontaneity is the state of realizing boredom does have enemies.~Tsem Rinpoche
Boredom is the mind that thinks this is it, when it's not.~Tsem Rinpoche
Being creative is not a choice, direction or lifestyle but my natural state of mind~Tsem Rinpoche
Depression is a state of mind only when you are a piece of wood~Tsem Rinpoche
Losing is just letting yourself know that winning is not the goal but only part of the journey~Tsem Rinpoche
When you hate or love something extremely, both leads to sufferings.~Tsem Rinpoche
Being with someone we love or don't love should not make a difference to a genuine practioner expunged of the I.~Tsem Rinpoche
Dorje Shugden is not a cause, a movement or religion but who I am, for that person is compassion, love and acceptance.~Tsem Rinpoche

15 Nov 17, 07:38 AMTsem Rinpoche: The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website.

12 Nov 17, 02:59 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is such a heartwarming show. It really inspires people to apply more effort, to heal and to be more than they limit themselves to be. Look at the case of Kalijah and how he brought a family back together and how he taught them how to forgive and heal. It's incredible how Kalijah forgives after so much fear and pain. This is one show you should not miss.- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lhjo04V9DmM
11 Nov 17, 04:33 AMTsem Rinpoche: Erich Von Daniken speaks very well in this clear video. Advanced civilizations were visiting our ancient past going back at least 6000 years ago. Explore the Possibilities and the fascinating scientific evidence. This video contain just the surface of the forbidden knowledge being hidden and protected today... knowledge that suggests a strong possibility that our views of human origins are either incorrect... or maybe that time travelers have already visited Earth’s past. Interesting to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPArZnCTHaI
10 Nov 17, 06:44 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dear friends, In the effort to be creative about something as holy and beneficial as Dorje Shugden, we've come out with these new and realistic depictions. One is Dorje Shugden visiting the Potala Palace and the other is Dorje Shugden arising from Drepung Monastery where he lived in Zimkhang Gangma Ladrang as a high lama. Please enjoy and be blessed.

9 Nov 17, 11:50 PMTsem Rinpoche: If there was one thing I would have changed in my childhood is I wish my mother did not give me up for adoption. Monks from the monastery requested me to be placed in the monastery when I was very young. She refused them. Things would have been so different for me if I was allowed in the monastery at that tender age. My mother did not take care of me but she didn't allow others to do so of my choice.

3 Nov 17, 04:58 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is really an excellent documentary. They can 'freeze people', stop the heart and do operations that would otherwise not really be possible and then revive them. It is really a medical miracle. A woman was revived many hours after she was frozen in a accident and she is perfectly normal now. A must watch documentary because they also lightly explore what is consciousness and where does consciousness exist when we are dead for that time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9eLd9Q5Ucw

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa's tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.
Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.
Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

I would like to share with Rinpoche on Mrs Chuah teaching kids at KFR to learn English. Sock Wan requested to Mrs Chuah if she can help to improve the kids’ English and she happily agreed. Mrs Chuah has been teaching Janelle, Liang Jing, Hayden, Marici and Alden since late May this year. They are having class in the evening at Dukkar Apartments.
Initially Mrs Chuah travels from Kuala Lumpur to KFR once a week to give kids tuition for two hours. Later she gives intensive classes to those who are weak with extra hours by starting earlier. During examination period Mrs Chuah will ask the kids to have extra day to make it two days per week to better prepare for the exam. When Mrs Chuah is planning to travel or cannot make it the next week, she will also arrange to have extra days and giving extra home works to ensure the kids get enough lessons and practice.
Most of the kids’ English paper result have improved. Liang Jing has his English paper result improved from 70 to 80, Janelle improved a lot during the second term exam, compared to the first term result. She told me how much she has improved - 30 marks for her result, and when she told Mrs Chuah about her improvement from 40 marks to 70 marks - Janelle has improved a lot but Mrs Chuah said she can do even better. I was laughing and said yes Mrs Chuah is very strict. Marici, Hayden and Alden have improved in their writing and understanding as well.
Mrs Chuah cares about the kids so much that she will prepared food especially soup for them to have during the tuition. She makes sure they not only learn well but eat well. Thank you Mrs Chuah for always cares and extended her care to all around her. She is like a mother and teacher for all.
19 Oct 17, 04:12 AMTsem Rinpoche: As a young boy in Howell, I really looked forward to Halloween. It was one of the favorite times of the year. I like the costumes, interesting Halloween parties/games, trick or treating house to house was immense fun, the decorations and the whole ideas and atmosphere of Halloween appealed to me. I would say it is a favorite holiday and at the same time there was something 'spiritual' or different about Halloween. Halloween made America to me, less boring but more exciting to me. I wished Halloween was several times a year back then.

Some of what is shared is quite sad and shocking. Some parts touch you deeply and you will wonder how he went through so much. Please take the time to understand how Tsem Rinpoche became so refreshingly unconventional yet authentic to our lineage. What made him what he is today.

9 Oct 17, 10:34 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl4z982q3732.jpg I still love and miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I am hoping he will unite all of us no matter what our religion is. I know he will. His Holiness has done so much good in the world. I've admired him since I was a very young boy and when I met him for the first time in 1979. He came to Howell, New Jersey where I grew up. It was magical to see him. I pray one day he will accept all Dorje Shugden practitioners as was his root guru was a Dorje Shugden practitioner and invite us into his presence again with love and acceptance. I pray for his long life and continued presence in this world. I never lost hope in His Holiness the Dalai Lama to accept all of us regardless of race, religion, sect and background once again.
I place my unworthy head to his feet, Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche www.tsemrinpoche.com

2 Oct 17, 12:23 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is a powerful talk. You should really watch it carefully and really focus without distraction as he talks fast. It is something really for you to think about deeply. If you like something intellectual with substance, this is it. I highly recommend this but must be in a quiet room without distractions

Of course they all get along unlike what Tibetan leadership likes to say they don't get along. All enlightened beings get along with other enlightened beings and unenlightened beings. Enlightened beings have no karma to not get along with others. Tsem Rinpoche

Here are the victims of your 'personal choice'. You like steak and veal? This is what happens.
The victims of your glass of milk.
Terrified baby calves,
Forced to watch other baby calves killed.
Only to then be strung upside down and have their throats slit and all the blood drain out.
There is nothing 'humane' about the dairy industry. There is nothing kind about the meat industry. Stop eating meat.

1 Oct 17, 05:39 AMTsem Rinpoche: It is wonderful that our Kecharian students have conceptualized a sacred chapel dedicated to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was a very famous and erudite master 400 years ago in Tibet. Due to intrigue within the Tibetan government at the time, they had him eliminated him. In order to cover the fact of what they did, they had all his teachings, writings, works and biographies destroyed. They banned his incarnation to appear which did not stop him at all. He kept returning but under another name to continue benefiting many beings as various well known high lamas. Some of his works survive in today's Mongolia as his Mongolian students took them there for safety at the time and now preserved. He was the student of the great 4th Panchen Lama and he himself had thousands of students including Mongolian royalty. He was saintly and very popular and because of his popularity, jealous camps plotted to get rid of him. They were successful for a short while. For later on as he had promised, he arose as a supreme dharma protector Dorje Shugden. Holy beings can manifest in many different forms including Dharma protectors to benefit beings according to their karmic dispositions. This chapel in Bentong near Kechara Forest Retreat is opened and dedicated in his memory in order to commemorate his great works as well as to invoke his blessings. A chapel to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, a holy man who was silenced during his life and now will not stay silent. His chapel is to invoke his blessings for all that come to worship to be blessed with healing, fortune, turn of luck, protection and granting of meritorious wishes. It will be a place to pray to clear our obstacles to deeper spirituality. The blessings of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen will bring us into a higher form of thinking. The lineage of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is now being revived once more in Bentong, Malaysia. Congratulations to those students who are making this all happen. They are meritorious indeed. Their dedication, trust, confidence and faith in the holy Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is reviving his lineage. Today while escorting his statue to the chapel, amidst a fully blazing midday sun, it immediately lightly drizzled as the sun continued to shine. All those present witnessed this unusual event exactly at the juncture of escorting his statue into the new chapel. This is considered an auspicious omen. We pray to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen that he will bless in many ways all who will visit his chapel from today onwards. Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl2r5h5j1918.jpg http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl2r5h5s8033.jpg http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl2r5h5v6604.jpg
1 Oct 17, 04:53 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl2r475t4101.jpg I always like my rooms to smell clean, fresh, woodsy and a bit like the forest. my favorite types of essential oils to burn daily or as an offering to the Buddhas are Juniper, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint and sometimes Rosemary. I like the smell of the forest, woods and wooded areas very much. I've been using essential oils in my rooms for years. I don't necessarily purchase the brand you see in the picture as I buy any brand as long as it's made naturally. Tsem Rinpoche

1 Oct 17, 02:36 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl2r18w74952.jpg In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single 'huts' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

30 Sep 17, 01:40 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8z7mldo493635.jpg I truly dread living in the cities with the noise, traffic, pollution, density, crowds, lights, vibrations, garbage, haze, lack of space and the general feeling it gives me is restlessness. Like when is this stopover going to be over. I don't like going shopping and only do so if I really have to otherwise there is not much to do or that I want to do. I dream so much of living out of the city in the country with many trees, blue skies, birds, squirrels, breeze, flowers, shrubs, hills and open air. I feel alive, home and calming to be in the country. I want to be in a small house that is easy to manage on my own without many hallways and safe at the same time with a tight roof protected from leaks. I long for such a place very much and wish to be there to read, practice, meditate, recite mantras, watch flowers grow, offer incense, make offerings on my shrine and just be in a place where I can hear the rustle of leaves in the wind. I wish for such a place soon. Every part of my being yearns for such a place. A small bungalow with land, not much land, but land would be lovely and far from the neighbours. I don't like to attract attention at all. I haven't anything against anyone, but I am not an interesting person and prefer to be alone and with myself. I am comfortable with myself. I wish for such a place of solitude and quiet very much. So far not fulfilled. A place where it does not require tons of people to maintain and is simple and easy. I can imagine myself in a small, eat, clean, safe and rain proof country home feeding the outdoor birds and squirrels, going for walks and cultivating some flowers and tomatoes in my free time. That is my idea of how I like the rest of my life along with my meditations. Tsem Rinpoche

30 Sep 17, 11:39 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dear friends around the world and in Malaysia, I took a rest today for a short while and indulged myself to watch this. I was doing work and had this playing in the background and realized it is a delightful gem of a movie. I stopped what I was doing to watch. Great plot although simple, wonderful acting and beautifully made. What a touching and delightful little show it is with Angela Lansbury and Omar Sharif. Diana Rigg is splendid in this. The main actors and supporting actors were all a total delight. It is a must watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW2jfdJxOEg
