His teachers and fellow students with whom he debated were astonished at his knowledge and, after two years of studying the Perfection of Wisdom, he was recognized at the age of 19, as a great scholar. That year Je Rinpoche debated at the two biggest monasteries of the day in Tibet: Chodra Chenpo Dewachen and Samye. He now became very famous in U-Tsang, the central providence of Tibet.

Paul Yap: 6. Please provide two examples of how the knowledge about karma guides our day-to-day experience and division.
• Whether it is negative karma, good karma, positive karma, neutral karma opening up that day depends on our motivation. Our good motivation depends on study and knowledge, practice, habituation, wisdom. Wisdom leads to good motivation. Good motivation and wisdom leads to good karma so that day when we wake up, the karma that we have dormant will be triggered by our motivation.
• The black karma can trigger that day, you can have an accident, or white karma opens that day. Or neutral karma. That day, any karma can open.
• According to Lord Buddha, we have had countless previous lives,
• we will have different types of positive, negative and neutral karmas and these karmas open up every single day, according to how we have our motivation that day.
• Not experiencing anything that day should not give you courage to do negative things that day. And doing positive things that day should not discourage you not to continue doing your positive actions. Why? Because that day, you may not be experiencing a direct positive result but it can lead to something of a big bang. A big bang, positive result.

White take is the result when we have a good motivation. It leads to having our temporary wishes fulfilled and even in the long term it will lead us to good rebirths . We create White karma when we follow instructions, learn and practice, habituate ourselves to have a good motiva always and gain wisdom through this practice

3, Understanding that everything we go through in daily life has a cause, and we do not need to experience negative situations in the future, if we change our behavior now and influence what sort of karma we create for the future.

9 Dec 17, 12:23 PM
Pastor Adeline: The knowledge of karma is like a guiding lights of our daily actions. It is a operation manual that lead us to positive destination. With the knowledge, we should be able to discipline our mind further and gearing ourselves toward performing positive / white karma. For example, when we see anger arises, understanding the negative effect of it, we will change our focus from us being angry to we do not want to cause other harm. Another example is knowing how selfishness harm ourselves and others, we change our thought to not wanting to harm and perform beneficial actions instead.
9 Dec 17, 12:22 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Adrian for catching up
9 Dec 17, 12:22 PM
Pastor Shin: ANS6. Some ways that knowledge about karma guides my day-to-day action and experience:
1. Focus on opening white karma, e.g how o open it everyday. I can start my day with effort, enthusiasm, sadhana, Protector practice to alleviate my problems, instead of complaining or blaming others.
2. When I experience negative results, I know that this is the results of the pathways and the dormant karma that I triggered to open.
3. Before taking any action, I am aware that there is a choice to trigger different types of karma, and so to be more mindful of my actions.
9 Dec 17, 12:22 PM
Sofi: A6 : Knowledge of karma makes me realise the impact of my own actions on my conditions of living and also that of others by association. Also we can change our karma by motivations and reparative actions. As such being mindful of our own actions and focusing out to helping others would be the best way to habituate good actions for good karma to arise or seeds to be planted.
9 Dec 17, 12:22 PM
adrian chow: 4. According to the article, what are the four things that you can do to make your Dharma Protector practice more effective? Why is this the case? 1. Appreciate your mother and father. Don't take them for granted and use them. 2. Appreciate your friends. Don't take them for granted. 3. Speak well and use your speech to benefit others. 4. Use your body for the benefit of others.
9 Dec 17, 12:20 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Wah Ying, Joy and Choong for your responses - there is no right or wrong answers. it is nice to see how Rinpoche's teachings change our mindset and help us to be mindful of our motivation

Joy: That's a good thought @Choong... already it has taken effect
9 Dec 17, 12:19 PM
Choong: A6. The knowledge and appreciation of Karma also makes me think in situations, about how I may be able to help others.
9 Dec 17, 12:19 PM
wah ying: 6. Please provide two examples of how the knowledge about karma guides our day-to-day experience and division. Answer: Knowledge about karma teaches us about think and do good leads to good results, bad motivation and action brings bad results; and all will come back to us eventually. Hence we control our thoughts, set our motivation rights and involve in good action.
9 Dec 17, 12:18 PM
Joy: 6. Please provide two examples of how the knowledge about karma guides your day-to-day action and experience.
With this knowledge, we can CHANGE our thought process especially those negative thoughts that come up all the time, we know we can change those thoughts and change our day, our results, our destiny, our future and yes appreciation of how karma works makes me realise of skillful and compassionate is our lama to guide us and keep shining the light on of negativities to help us get rid of these qualities so that we can change our karma to be a positive one which will affect our future life. Thank you.
9 Dec 17, 12:17 PM
Pastor Adeline: The knowledge of karma should serves as a leading light like an operation manual of our daily conduct. It should help us to discipline our jumping mind and gear towards performing white karma that lead to a better place. For example when we see anger arises, instead of acting out from it, we change the motivation to see the harmful results instead. Knowing the harm it can caused, we will
9 Dec 17, 12:16 PM
Choong: A6. The knowledge and appreciation of Karma makes me think about what causes we are creating to have a better rebirth and to be close to the Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
9 Dec 17, 12:15 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Swee Keong and Yau Mun for catching up
9 Dec 17, 12:15 PM
Yau Mun: Q5 Ans: White karma is positive or good karma. Example of fruition of white karma is fulfilling our business, family and temporary aspiration. Then that will lead to more rebirths in good, positive situations. That will again lead to either control, liberation or nirvana.
9 Dec 17, 12:14 PM
sweekeong: A5) White karma would allow our aspirations in this life being fulfilled. Example of aspiratins are: business aspirations, family aspirations, and temporary aspirations. Then we have sufficient conditions to practice more Dharma, have good rebirths, and which would lead to liberation in future.

9 Dec 17, 12:13 PM
P David Lai: 6. Please provide two examples of how the knowledge about karma guides our day-to-day experience and division. - Knowledge about karma guide our decisions because it logically tells you that good actions lead to good results and harmful actions lead to undesirable results. Hence, we want to avoid the undesirable and always strive to do good as we know what comes around goes around.

9 Dec 17, 12:13 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you for spotting that Choong. It is my mistake.... Let me post the question again
9 Dec 17, 12:12 PM
Pastor Niral Patel: @Valentina, What do you mean by "division" in the question "6. Please provide two examples of how the knowledge about karma guides our day-to-day experience and division." It doesn't make sense.
9 Dec 17, 12:12 PM
Choong: @Valentina_Moderator : Q6. What do you mean by the word "division" in your question?

Joy: 5. What is White karma? What are some of the examples of the fruition of white karma?
White karma comes from good motivation, that arises from wisdom, habituation, practice, learning and study. so if we keep jumping from one centre to another centre, from one lama to another lama to another lama, to one lineage to another lineage to another lineage – in the Tibetan tradition, it is consider that very bad as we end up mixing everything and get no benefits at all from our practice.

White karma opens through positive thoughts. The moment we wake up, or you start your day with effort, enthusiasm, your sadhana to our Dharma Protector.
9 Dec 17, 12:11 PM
Pastor Niral Patel: ANS 5: White karma are actions that are motivated by wisdom, habituation, practice, learning and study. Examples of the fruition of white karma include fulfillment of business aspirations, family aspirations, and temporary aspirations. This can lead to fortunate rebirths, in positives realms and situations, control over cyclic rebirth and eventually liberation.
9 Dec 17, 12:11 PM
Victor.C: A4. Appreciate our parents and don't used them.

9 Dec 17, 12:10 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you for the response everyone... one last question of the day...
9 Dec 17, 12:09 PM
Valentina_moderator: 5. What is White karma? What are some of the examples of the fruition of white karma?

White karma is the karma that is created from good motivation that arises from wisdom, habituation, practice, learning and study.

Examples of the results of white karma:
- Fulfilment of business aspirations
- Fulfilment of family aspiration
- Fulfilment of temporary aspirations.
- Rebirths in positive situations
- Rebirths in positive situations
9 Dec 17, 12:09 PM
Choong: How would you prove this? "Pastor Niral Patel: ANS 4: ... Because Dharma protectors are not 'ego protectors' who help you more if you do bad things. But they are Dharma protectors who help you when you do more good things, eg. help and benefit others."

I would think that Dharma protectors would not be able to help you do more "good" things because the "bad" things you do are so overwhelming that it would cancel out or block any "good" things your Dharma protector is trying to bring you to.
9 Dec 17, 12:09 PM
Sofi: A5: White karma comes from good motivation, that arises from wisdom, habituation, practice, learning and study. It will lead to a good destination, fulfilment of your temporary goals, happiness, openness, clarity and can lead to positive states of rebirth, to continue one’s benefit to others and to always have good lives – you will always be able to benefit others. You will always take a good rebirth and your rebirth will be very conducive to you and your spiritual practice and your happiness, automatically. It will lead to this. Then, also it can lead to, if you do tantric practice, Kechara Paradise, Vajrayogini’s paradise.
9 Dec 17, 12:09 PM
Paul Yap: 5. What is White karma? What are some of the examples of the fruition of white karma?
White karma will lead to arriving at our destination. That is the path set out by our good karma
1.That could be fulfilling your business aspirations
2. Fulfilling your family aspirations
3. Fulfilling your temporary aspirations
Then that will lead to more rebirths in good, positive situations. That will again lead to either control, liberation or nirvana.
9 Dec 17, 12:09 PM
Pastor Adeline: White karma will lead to arriving at our temporary or mundane aspirations or higher destinations such as good and positive rebirths that will lead to either control, liberation or nirvana. White karma can only arise from good motivation that arises from wisdom, practice, habituation, learning and study.

Valentina_moderator: Thank you Wai Meng and see you again in the next blog chat
9 Dec 17, 12:08 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Joy - Dear Choong one practical example regarding the protector is to protect dharma and not our ego is one of my acquaintances prayed to the protector that he would like to win a courth case because he does not like to lose to the other party and not because he was treated unfairly. The prayer was not fulfilled. I do not know for sure on the detail of the case, but it is an example of how the dharma protector is not there to protect his ego of not wanting to lose
9 Dec 17, 12:07 PM
Victor.C: A3. By following one Lama, one centre, we can progress tremendously in spirituality because different Lama and lineage have different sets of teaching but all teaches according to the scriptures and it will not confuse us.

Victor.C: A2. Not taking responsibility, laziness, blaming others, anger, will triggers negative karma to open. At the same time we can do pujas, purification practice, do dharma work and sadhana to lessen the negative karma effect.

Joy: @Valentina when @Choong ask how would you prove it... means you need to give a practical real example that has been experienced before by either yourself or others not more theories as theories need to be proven... Valentina_moderator: Dear Choong, the reason why Dharma protector arise is to protect the Buddha's teachings its practitioners. Protecting our ego is a complete opposite from practicing the Dharma since it will bring us further away from the Buddha's teachings - this is how to prove logically that Dharma protector would not protect our ego

Valentina_moderator: 4. According to the article, what are the four things that you can do to make your Dharma Protector practice more effective? Why is this the case?

Four things that you can do to make the Dharma protector practice more effective:
1. Appreciate your mother and father. Don’t use them
2. Appreciate your friends. Don’t use them.
3. Talk well, use your speech to benefit others
4. Use your body to benefit others

The reasons why the Dharma protector practices are more effective when you do these things, are because they are Dharma protector and not ego protectors. Therefore, if you are doing things with bad motivation, they cannot help you no matter how many pujas that you do.

9 Dec 17, 11:58 AM
Pastor Niral Patel: @Choong, well the whole purpose of, at least, the enlightened Dharma protectors arising in that form, is to aid others. Since they are enlightened beings, they have enlightened compassion, so then you can talk about the compassion of the enlightened beings. On the other hand, you can check people by their example. If a person only focuses on the self and practices, do they can benefit? Compare this to a person who benefits others, and the effectiveness of their practice. Kache Marpo in trance also said that if you practice the Six Perfections, all your spiritual AND secular needs will be met. Well, the Six Perfections are all about benefiting others. What do you say?
9 Dec 17, 11:58 AM
sweekeong: A4) When we doing Dharma Protector practice it will more effective when: 1) we appreciate our parents and 2) friends, don't use them. 3) when we speak it is beneficial purpose and 4) use our body to benefit others not harm.
The Dharma Protectors are not ego protectors therefore they're not here to help make us become more egoistic, to be more arrogance, nasty, and selfish.
9 Dec 17, 11:57 AM

Pastor Niral Patel: ANS 4: If we (1) appreciate, love and respect our mother and father, (2) appreciate out friends, (3) talk well and use our speech to benefit others and (4) use your body to benefit others then Dharma protector practice becomes more effective. Because Dharma protectors are not 'ego protectors' who help you more if you do bad things. But they are Dharma protectors who help you when you do more good things, eg. help and benefit others.

2) appreciate your mother and father - don’t use them.
3) appreciate your friends - don’t use them
4) talk well, use your speech to benefit others
5) use your body to benefit others
Then when we do any Dharma Protector practice Dorje Shugden/Setrap, Palden Lhamo, Mahakala, Kalarupa, Vaisravana, it will have more effect. It is because they are called Dharma Protectors, not ego protectors. If they are ego protectors, the more bad things you do, the more they will help you. Since they are Dharma Protectors, if you do bad things with bad motivation, bad action and have bad intent, they cannot help you no matter how many pujas you do. So no point praying to Dorje Shugden, he cannot help you if the motivation is bad.
9 Dec 17, 11:51 AM
Pastor Adeline: Protector practice eliminates our outer obstacles given by others and our karma, and inner obstacles such as difficulties, doubts, anger, selfishness. Doing Protector practice with 1, appreciate our mother and father and don’t use them; 2, appreciate our friends and don’t use them; 3, talk well, use our speech to benefit others; 4, use our body to benefit others then any Dharma Protector practice such as Palden Lhamo, Mahakala, Kalarupa, Vaisravana, Setrap, Dorje Shugden we do will have more effect. Because they are called Dharma Protectors, not ego protectors. Since they’re Dharma Protectors, if we do bad things, have bad motive, bad action and bad intent, they cannot help us no matter how many pujas we do.
9 Dec 17, 11:51 AM

9 Dec 17, 11:50 AM
adrian chow: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma has opened? Basically is our motivation will determine the negative dormant karma to open. If we help people without expecting anything in return, that's positive karma. But when we extend help to others only to look good with the intention of letting everyone knows. That's negative karma. When our negative karma has opened, what we can do to is to purify it by following our guru's instructions and mending our samaya. We can do pujas, sadhana, do dharma works, to help us to overcome the karma which is creating difficulties for us.

9 Dec 17, 11:47 AM
Valentina_moderator: Yes Swee Keong, for ordinary practitioners like us, it is better to stick with one lama and one centre not because the teachings from the other centre is not good, but because we need to protect our mind from confusion and so that we can focus on the proactice given by our teacher
9 Dec 17, 11:46 AM
Wan Wai Meng: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama? A. Most humans have the monkey mind, hence the difficulty to make progress on spiritual path. if one has one centre and one teacher, aside from mixing up traditions which they can get confused, people can be selective. People even having one teacher and one centre can be selective in what they want to apply and practice, what more if they have many teachers. Being too selective can be a real hindrance, because the student could be avoiding a practice or advice to overcome the main issue they are experiencing.
9 Dec 17, 11:45 AM
sweekeong: A3) When we jump from one center we would mix everything together, the teachings, and the practices. It is not good and confuses our mind. When we have one center one lama we will be able to focus our mind on the practices and assignments. It reduces our confusion.

9 Dec 17, 11:42 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Choong for sharing your experience with us :)
9 Dec 17, 11:42 AM
Valentina_moderator: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama?

It is not advisable to jump from one centre to another or from one lama to another because it makes the practitioners’ mind unstable, not here, not there, and not receiving the benefits.

The benefits of sticking to one centre and one lama:
- The practitioner will not be subjected to different focus, practice or advice. Because although in the end, once a certain level of knowledge is attained, the practitioners are equal in knowledge and wisdom, their approach may differ. For example, one centre may focus on Green Tara practice and another centre may focus on Manjushri practice, but the end result is the same.
- If we follow a lineage, a teacher a method all the way, the practitioners will be very successful and not become mixed up.
9 Dec 17, 11:42 AM
Choong: Oh yes, I have done that. LOL

9 Dec 17, 11:41 AM
Yau Mun: Q3 Ans: When jump from one centre to another, we will not be able to follow through the Lama’s advice or practices that given to us. By doing that it create a broken samaya with our guru and create a heavy negative karma, that will block us from receiving future dharma teaching and practices. Each lineage have different way of practices, to follow one is so challenging, I can’t imaging to have so many gurus and practices.
9 Dec 17, 11:40 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you KB and Paul. Good morning Pastor David
9 Dec 17, 11:40 AM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Chris Thank you for your response - Does it mean that other center practice is not as good or that they aim for the same goal, but the methods may differ from one centre to another?
9 Dec 17, 11:40 AM
kb: Ans3.. follow one lama and one center all the high lama's adviced. its will help u with spiritual practice. Every center and lama has different methods to guide u. when we jump here and there we are not stable, it will be difficult achieve anything.
9 Dec 17, 11:40 AM
Paul Yap: • Q3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama? • Answer: • When we jump from one center to another center, we become mix up, not here, not there, no benefits at all. • When you achieve Tara, you are Tara. So when you come into one room, it doesn’t matter where you came from but you have arrived. There is no Gelugpa, Nyingma, Sakya or Kagyu Buddha. From the Buddha’s side, they’re nameless. It is from our side, we put names. It is from our side, we put projections. It is from our side, we put them into boxes. But from their side, there is no lineage, free of lineage. Having said that, if we follow a lineage, a teacher, a method all the way, you’ll be very successful. It will not become mixed up.
9 Dec 17, 11:39 AM
P David Lai: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama? - It is not advisable to jump from one center to another because you do not learn and master the teachings as each center and master will have a different set of teachings and ways of doing things. Hence, doing that would eventually create confusion in a practitioner that is not stable.
9 Dec 17, 11:38 AM
Chris Chong: Answer 3 : It is not advisable to jump from centre to centre or lama to lama because our practice might get mixed upand we will end up getting no where.
9 Dec 17, 11:38 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama?

-We need to stick to one center as every teacher has his own method and we need to follow one to get results.
-If we switch from one center to another we get mixed up and will not fulfil our goal.
9 Dec 17, 11:37 AM
Pastor Shin: ANS3. It is not advisable to jump from centre to another or one lama to another because it makes the practitioners’ become mixed up (confused), not here, not there, and not receiving the benefits.
The benefits of having one centre and one lama is that the practitioner will not be confused with different focus, practice or advice and when one follows a lineage, a teacher a method all the way, the practitioner will be very successful and be equal in knowledge and wisdom, no matter which lineage/teacher/ centre we follow.
9 Dec 17, 11:37 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Choong for the additional information
9 Dec 17, 11:36 AM
Wan Wai Meng: Thank you Valentina. 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened? A. The kinds of thoughts are are based on the 5 poisons can trigger negative karma to open up. Thoughts that does not help us to improve and be more spiritual. Thoughts like denial, anger, dissatisfaction, jealousy, avoidance. We can do pujas, our sadhana, do dharma works, to help us through the karma, especially karma whose effects are still creating difficulties for us. It is helpful for us to accept this karma, and realize that karma has happened to us is due to our previous actions and do spiritual practices to offset or shorten the negative effects of the karma that has manifested.
9 Dec 17, 11:36 AM
Choong: Valentina_moderator: Dear Choong, thank you for your answer... Would you mind to elaborate further what is the real danger that could destabilize the practitioners mind when they jump from one center to another other than there is a big possibility of not following through with the teacher's instruction?

The saying "Rolling stones gather no moss" comes into my mind. If you do not stay with one advice, one practice, until you get some traction, some benefits, you will never gain anything. Worse still is when you jump around and you get many different advice, different practices, you will get confused and in the end you will end up not following through on any of the advice or practice, hence no results.

Sofi: A3: Its not advisable as what you learn will become mixed with differing teachings from different teachers. People who stick to one Lama, one centre, one lineage, one practice will gain the same level of knowledge, wisdom as any practitioner from another centre. They are the same just differing methods. With one centre, we can focus and practice well our Guru's teachings.
9 Dec 17, 11:35 AM
Joy: Q3 Ans: Very simple... if by having 1 Guru and 1 Centre you cannot even FOLLOW thoroughly all the Guru advice and cannot even apply the teachings, what is the point going to another Guru/centre and getting more practices? It will get you only all the more mixed up plus it clearly shows your lack of Guru devotion. One should stick and follow one lineage, one teacher, one method all the way to be successful in one's spiritual practice and not mixed them up. When one become mixed up, it’s not the side of the lineage or the teacher, it’s the side of your mind jumping and end up more confused. So the fault comes from yourself. So those who do that, unless they are very attained and can handle all instructions from many different Guru, or they are basically the "feel good" type of practitioners.

Valentina_moderator: Thank you Wei Theng and Swee Keong for catching up... :)
9 Dec 17, 11:34 AM
sweekeong: A2) When we have negative thoughts that is only (short term) beneficial only for ourselves then negative dormant karma will open. Example:
1. blaming others and finding faults to put down others
2. lazy, unmotivate to do work
3. pushing work to others
We need to always check motivation and correct it, and accept criticism as opportunity to change ourselves.
9 Dec 17, 11:34 AM
Wan Wai Meng: Thank you Valentina. 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened? A. The kinds of thoughts are are based on the 5 poisons can trigger negative karma to open up. Thoughts that does not help us to improve and be more spiritual. Thoughts like denial, anger, dissatisfaction, jealousy, avoidance. We can do pujas, our sadhana, do dharma works, to help us through the karma, especially karma whose effects are still creating difficulties for us. It is helpful for us to accept this karma, and realize that karma has happened to us is due to our previous actions and do spiritual practices to offset or shorten the negative effects of the karma that has manifested.

Valentina_moderator: Good morning Freon, thank you for joining us today :)
9 Dec 17, 11:33 AM
Pastor Adeline: In order for good motivation to arise from wisdom, habituation, practice, learning and study, it is important to stick to one Lama and one centre so that what we learn is not mixed. Mixing different teachings and learning from different lamas do not bring us to achieve good motivation that allow us to perform white karma, hence no achievement from our mixing of different teachings.
9 Dec 17, 11:33 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Wei Theng for your answer would you mind to give an example as to what will confuse the practitioners when they jump from one centre to another? :)
9 Dec 17, 11:32 AM
jp: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama? It is not advisable because every centre and lama have their own methods to practicing the dharma. We won't be able to cope if we follow every centre or lama's method. When we follow 1 centre and 1 lama, it makes it easier for us to follow consistently. When this happens, we can see results in our practice.
9 Dec 17, 11:32 AM
Paul Yap: • 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened? • Answer:- • If that day we think on a negative level, then a negative karma will open. • When the negative karma opens, it will come from hiding, denial, animal-like behaviour. • What’s animal-like behaviour? Eat, sleep, eat, sleep; don’t care about anything else. • A) Selfishness – you have no concern about the person near you or next to you, or in front of you, no concern – it’s only about yourself. • B) Laziness Laziness is the unwillingness to apply change. Laziness. Unwilling to change and blame. • C) Not taking responsibility for your problems but blaming someone else. Always blaming other people. • So the good thing about this is, once you get here, you can change it. Everyday, once you open that negative karma, you’re not stuck there, you can follow the advice of your elders, your teacher, or a scripture or a friend whose been giving you good advice. You can apply effort. You can apply practice that day. You can apply regret. You can apply purification. You can apply guru devotion or, even better, mending your samaya.
9 Dec 17, 11:31 AM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Choong, thank you for your answer... Would you mind to elaborate further what is the real danger that could destabilize the practitioners mind when they jump from one center to another other than there is a big possibility of not following through with the teacher's instruction?
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
Yau Mun: Q2 Ans: Negative dormant karma open with negative type of motivation, having the thought of hurting or injuring people, selfishness, jealous, laziness and miserliness. 
Once the negative karma opens, it can changed with pumas, follow advice of elders, teacher, scripture or a friend who has a track record of giving good advice. We can also put effort to practice, regret, purification, guru devotion and mending samaya.
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
WeiTheng: A3. When jumping from one center to another, one’s practice maybe mixed. One can be confused. Having said that, if we follow a lineage, a teacher, a method all the way, you’ll be very successful. It will not become mixed up. When you become mixed up, it’s not the side of the lineage or the teacher, it’s the side of your mind jumping. All the time jumping, jumping, jumping, jumping. So the fault comes from yourself.
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
wah ying: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama? Answer: You are not going to receive any benefit from jumping from one centre to another; or from one lama to another. If we follow a lineage, a teacher, a method all the way, we will be very successful. It will not become mixed up.
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
freon: Good morning Rinpoche, Moderator and blog friends. Apologies for late.
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples.

1.To be in denial and not acknowledge our faults
2.To be lazy, not putting effort
3.Not caring but only eat and sleep, not caring about anything else, which is animal-like behaviour
9 Dec 17, 11:30 AM
Choong: A3. 2. The benefit of one center, one lama is that you follow through and not get advice and practice mixed up which would certainly be a cocktail for failure.

freon: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? A} 3 pathways we can go (i) Positive (ii) Negative (iii) Neutral. It is triggered by motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:28 AM
Choong: A3. 1. When you jump from one to a next center, you are not following through with your Lama's advice and maybe practices given to you. You are really abandoning the Dharma and this is really heavy negative karma for one not to receive teachings or practices in the future.
9 Dec 17, 11:28 AM
June Kang: Q3: you would more focus with one center one lama. The teaching receivef will be more
9 Dec 17, 11:27 AM
Valentina_moderator: I mean Good morning Wei Theng...
9 Dec 17, 11:27 AM
wah ying: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened? Answer: If you on that day think on a negative level, then a negative karma will open. When the negative karma opens and activated , it will come from hiding, denial, animal-like behaviour. So on that day, you will live within negative actions, negative results, and the collection of more negative karma. Even it's opened you’re not stuck there. You can do pujas, follow the advice of your elders, your teacher, or a scripture or a friend whose been giving you good advice. You can apply effort, practice, regret, purification, guru devotion or, even better, mending your samaya.
9 Dec 17, 11:26 AM
Valentina_moderator: 3. Why it is not advisable to jump from one centre to another centre or from one lama to another lama? What are the benefits of only having one centre and one lama?

9 Dec 17, 11:26 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Joy and goor morning Wei Theng - Let's move on to the next question...
9 Dec 17, 11:25 AM
WeiTheng: Good morning Rinpoche and all!
9 Dec 17, 11:25 AM
Joy: Q2 Ans: If we have negative thoughts, obviously negative karma will open and when that happens more will come. Negative karma comes from hiding, denial, animal-like behaviour. What’s animal-like behaviour? There great examples is we only think about eat, sleep, and our comfort and don’t care about anything else but our own selves.This is an animal-like behaviour. Being selfish is another example, you have no concern about the person near you or next to you, or in front of you, no concern – it’s only about yourself. Laziness, hiding one's faults and unwilling to change and blaming others. Hence, that day, the negative karma is activated. So on that day, you will live within negative actions, negative results, and the collection of more negative karma.

Good news is you are not stuck and you can change this by:
1) do pujas 2) apply effort 3) follow the advice of your elders 4) your teacher 5) the scriptures/a friend whose been giving you good advice 6) apply dharma practice 7) apply regret 8)purification practices 9) apply guru devotion or, even better, mending your samaya.
If you do these actions, then this action, instead of becoming black leading can change to positive.
9 Dec 17, 11:25 AM
Valentina_moderator: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened?

The negative dormant karma will be opened when we think on a negative level. Three examples of negative level thinking:
• Hiding
• Denial
• Animal-like behaviour: when you only care about eat and sleep
• Selfishness: when you have no concern about the person near you, next to you or in front of you. You only concern about yourself.
• Laziness: unwillingness to apply change and blame the other person

Once the negative karma is opened, you can change it using many different methods such as doing pujas, following the advice of the elders, your teacher, the scriptures or a friend who has been giving you good advice. You can apply effort, practice, regret, purification, guru devotion and mend your samaya.

9 Dec 17, 11:24 AM
Wan Wai Meng: Good morning Rinpoche and everyone. 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? - The three pathways, are positive, negative and neutral. Our thoughts and thinking can trigger in the beginning of the day can trigger the various pathways.
9 Dec 17, 11:24 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you for the complete answers Pastor Shin
9 Dec 17, 11:24 AM
Pastor Shin: ANS2. The kind of thoughts that trigger the negative dormant karma to open are:
1) Hiding and denial
2) Animal-like behaviour, arising from selfishness that have no concern about the person near you or next to you, or in front of you, one only cares about oneself, focusing on eat and sleep.
3) Laziness - Unwilling to change and blame, not taking responsibility for one's problems but blaming someone else.
There are many different methods we can apply when our negative karma opens, such as doing pujas, following the advice of the elders/ your teacher/ the scriptures or a friend who have been giving us good advice. We can apply effort, practice, regret, purification, guru devotion and mend our samaya.
9 Dec 17, 11:23 AM
Pastor Antoinette: *let
9 Dec 17, 11:22 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma has opened?

-Our motivation triggers the negative dormant karma to open.
1. If we give food to people who are hungry and we don't want something back, we have a positive karma.
2.If we give food to someone but we want to show off and et everyone know what we do it is negative karma.
If we give food to someone but it is only because by mistake we put it there and someone finds it and we just leave it to them, it is neutral karma.
What we can do once the negative karma has opened is to purify it, follow our guru's instructions and mending our samaya. We also need to study and gain knowledge, put what we have learned into practice again and again and with that comes habituation and this translates over time into wisdom.
9 Dec 17, 11:22 AM
Pastor Adeline: Negative thoughts triggers negative dormant karma to be opened. Example of negative thoughts are will laziness, blaming others, hiding, denial, animal-like behaviour. Animal-like behaviour is eat, sleep, eat, sleep and couldn't care more about anything else. It is the same as selfishness – no concern about the person around you. A selfish person only only thinks about yourself. When the negative dormant karma is triggered, we have a choice, either allow it to pull us further down or change it. Because we decide to change, we are not stuck.
9 Dec 17, 11:21 AM
jp: 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened? Laziness. The unwillingness to apply change. Not wanting to take responsibility of problems and blaming others. This kind of thinking activates the negative karma to open. Once the negative karma opens, it can be changed with pujas, follow advice of elders, teacher, scripture or a friend who has a track record of giving good advice. In addition, you can apply effort, practice, regret, purification, guru devotion, and/or mending samaya.
9 Dec 17, 11:20 AM
Sofi: A2 : Negative thoughts will trigger negative karma, usually through selfishness, laziness and miserliness. Once negative karma opens, we can do pujas. You can follow the advice of your elders, your teacher, or a scripture or a friend whose been giving you good advice. You can apply effort. You can apply practice that day. You can apply regret. You can apply purification. You can apply guru devotion or, even better, mending your samaya. If you do these actions, then this action, instead of becoming black leading to this, it will lead to this.
9 Dec 17, 11:20 AM
Choong: A2. Self-cherishing thought is the main factor for negative dormant karma to open up, which is the natural reflexive attitude the majority of us take.

Examples:
1. When we wake up, the first thing we do is complaint about not having had enough sleep? lol
2. When we queue up to pay at the cashier and someone cuts into the queue, we become angry.
When a dog comes and begs for food because she is hungry, we get angry and shoo her away.

What can we do to change it? We can take a step back and check our motivation, check why we become angry for example and apply the 4 opponents powers or regret, refuge in the 3 jewels, remedy, and resolve not to repeat.
9 Dec 17, 11:19 AM
Chris Chong: Answer 2: Thought that reinforces selfishness such as laziness, anger and miserliness will trigger negative dormant karma to open. When negative karma is triggered open, we can do virtuous activity such as puja, follow good advice, apply effort, apply practice , guru devotion and even meding guru samaya to change our destination to a good one.
9 Dec 17, 11:19 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you everyone for catching up ... let me put the second question again for convenience .... 2. What kind of thought trigger the negative dormant karma to open? Please provide three examples. What can we do once the negative karma is opened?

9 Dec 17, 11:18 AM
adrian chow: The three pathway is the negative, positive and neutral pathway. Dormant karma is karma that hasn't been triggered and is residing in our mindstream and will be triggered by our thoughts. Our motivation will determine the pathway.
9 Dec 17, 11:18 AM
kb: Ans...1) negative pathway. positive pathway. neutral and negative pathway. A dormant karma is activated until something triggers it to open ,its depends in our motivation and action we take each second on our daily life..
9 Dec 17, 11:17 AM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Swee keong - you are correct. Our motivation plays a big role in determining which karma we are opening at a particular time :)
9 Dec 17, 11:16 AM
sweekeong: A1) The 3 pathways are: positive, negative and neutral. Dormant karma is like a seed that hasn't sprout yet. The trigger that determine which pathway we will go thru is our motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:16 AM
Valentina_moderator: Good morning June Kang, thank you for joining today's blog chat and for catching up with us
9 Dec 17, 11:16 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you Paul for catching up. Rinpoche's teachings on Karma & Mindstream is really eye opening for us and help us to understand why is it important to have a positive motivation and to control our thoughts as it will determine which dormant karma we will help to open
9 Dec 17, 11:15 AM
Junr Kang: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? A: three patway :negative pathway. positive pathway.& neutral and/or negative pathway. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. Some things can remain dormant for one year, two years but dormancy means something that stays…it doesn’t open till something triggers it to open.
9 Dec 17, 11:14 AM
Paul Yap: Q1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? Answer:- The three path ways are negative pathway, positive pathway and neutral pathway. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. So it can remain dormant for 10 years; some seeds can remain dormant for 100 years. Some things can remain dormant for one year, two years but dormancy means something that stays…it doesn’t open till something triggers it to open. Karma is similar that way. What determines this is motivation.

Valentina_moderator: Thank you Yau Mun and Pastor Shin, let's move on to the next question...
9 Dec 17, 11:12 AM
Yau Mun: Q1 Ans: The three pathways are positive, negative or neutral karma. Dormant karma are imprints that are from our previous lives, that triggered at any moment with in a right condition or with thoughts.
9 Dec 17, 11:12 AM
Pastor Shin: Ans1. The three pathways are negative pathway, positive pathway, and neutral pathway. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains, it remains dormant until it is triggered. It is triggered by motivation to determine which pathway it will go through.
9 Dec 17, 11:12 AM
Valentina_moderator: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through?

There are three pathways that you can go:
1. The negative pathway
2. The positive pathway
3. The neutral and/ or negative pathway.

Dormant karma is the existing karma that has not been activated until something triggers it to open. Your motivation for that day will determine whether you will trigger the positive, negative or neutral dormant karma, which will determine which the pathway that you will go.
9 Dec 17, 11:12 AM
Valentina_moderator: Good morning Paul and Pastor Shin. Thank you Choong for the clarification :)
9 Dec 17, 11:12 AM
Choong: Valentina_moderator: Dear Choong, thank you for your response. Would you mind to elaborate further, what will determine which domant karma that we trigger to open?

The biggest factor that determines which dormant karma we trigger to open is our motivation. Good, selfless, motivation, will trigger good karma to open and when this opens up more and more times, it becomes a good habituation, tendency and eventually merits. The opposite is true too for negative karma.
9 Dec 17, 11:11 AM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you JP, Sofi Wah Ying, Pastor Antoinette, and Joy for the complete answers. It is true that the determining factor as to which dormant karma we trigerred that day is our motivation

Answer:- The three path ways are negative pathway, positive pathway and neutral pathway. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. So it can remain dormant for 10 years; some seeds can remain dormant for 100 years. Some things can remain dormant for one year, two years but dormancy means something that stays…it doesn’t open till something triggers it to open. Karma is similar that way.

Joy: Good question Valentina!
9 Dec 17, 11:10 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through?

-The three pathways for karma is positive, negative and neutral.
-Dormant karma is karma that has not yet opened and will open when something triggers it. This karma seed can stay dormant for a long time depending on what motivation we have.
-So what determines the pathway we take that day is our Motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:10 AM
wah ying: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? A: One is a negative pathway. One is a positive pathway. One is a neutral and/or negative pathway. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. Some things can remain dormant for one year, two years but dormancy means something that stays…it doesn’t open till something triggers it to open. Karma is similar. The defining factor for you to choose this daily, or to trigger this open daily is your motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:10 AM
Joy: Q1 Ans: The three pathways one can go is:
1) negative pathway. 2) positive pathway. 3) neutral and/or negative pathway. These are dormant karma which means karma that has nor ripened. It is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. So it can remain dormant for 10 years; some seeds remain dormant for 100 years. It all depends on the trigger point which is one's thoughts which is determined by one's motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:10 AM
Sofi: A1 : The three pathways are good, neutral and black. A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains. So it can remain dormant for 10 years; some seeds can remain dormant for 100 years. Some things can remain dormant for one year, two years but dormancy means something that stays…it doesn’t open till something triggers it to open. The trigger is the motivation.
9 Dec 17, 11:09 AM
jp: 1. What are the three pathways that you can go? What is dormant karma and how is it triggered to determine which pathway you will go through? 1 is negative pathway, positive pathway and neutral and/or negative pathway. Dormant karma is karma that hasn't been triggered to open up and is residing in our mindstream. It is triggered by our thoughts. Our motivation determines the pathway.
9 Dec 17, 11:08 AM
Pastor Adeline: Positive, negative and neutral pathways. Dormant karma is like seeds that are buried in our mind stream. It can be triggered to be opened. Depending on which type of dormant karma is triggered, it will lead us onto one of the three paths.

9 Dec 17, 11:06 AM
Sofi: Good morning Rinpoche and everyone
9 Dec 17, 11:06 AM
Choong: A1. The three pathways that one can take are the ones that cause positive, negaive or neutral karma. Dormant karma are seeds or imprints that we have taken into our minds previously, that can be triggered at any moment when the conditions are right. Depending on the type of karmic seed, this will manifest either further positive, negative or neutral karma.
