Dorje Shugden’s Mantra
Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound.

Incense Offering Prayers to Dorje Shugden

Mother and Son Saved by Tsem Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden
Rinpoche’s divination showed that both the wife and the baby would survive, and immediately instructed pujas to be done and candles to be lit for both the wife and the baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s mantra strongly to pray for protection for his wife and baby. In the end, both Ram’s wife and baby survived.

From a Free Thinker to a Buddhist
Since the first day I met Rinpoche until today, his compassion and motivation has never wavered; he is always consistent in benefiting others. With such a great example from my Guru, I realized that no other path is more important than my spiritual path, and I want to spend my remaining days in Dharma and to do work that benefits others.

Jacinta Goh: Thanks Moderator
23 Mar 17, 11:19 PM
Choong_Moderator: Tq Pema for that example
23 Mar 17, 11:19 PM
Elaine: Neutral karma is like, you see someone drowning but you do nothing about it. Then the person drowns. You actually collect negative karma because you did not help or put any effort to help.
23 Mar 17, 11:19 PM
Jacinta Goh: jangjub..
23 Mar 17, 11:19 PM
Choong_Moderator: Ok with that we will end the chat session here. Let us all strive to consistently contemplate and change our bad habits into good ones. Jangjub
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Pema.Thinley: "If you give because you don’t care, or you give this way: you’re walking down the street, 10 dollars fall out, you’re too lazy to pick up, someone take it, “okay take it loh, whatever” – neutral."
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 15: NEutral karma is not negative, not positive, but can become negative
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
fong: Q15. What is neutral karma? ANS: Neutral karma is not negative, not positive but can be become negative
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Pema.Thinley: Neutral karma is not negative, not positive but can be become negative.
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Caryn: Neutral karma is not negative, not positive but can be become negative.
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Elaine: neutral karma is like doing nothing. The karma is actually not neutral, it is negative.
23 Mar 17, 11:18 PM
Jacinta Goh: A15: Neutral karma is not negative, not positive but can be become negative.
23 Mar 17, 11:17 PM
Choong_Moderator: Last question Q15. What is neutral karma?
23 Mar 17, 11:16 PM
Choong_Moderator: OK, so to flip a bad habit to a good habit we need consistency in effort.
23 Mar 17, 11:16 PM
Sofi: Good nite Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 11:16 PM
fong: good night, Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 11:15 PM
Caryn: Good night Ashlee.
23 Mar 17, 11:15 PM
Ashlee: Nite Jacinta, Pems, Tek Lee, Caryn, Fong. Will do my dedications.
23 Mar 17, 11:15 PM
fong: Q14. Why is it important for us to apply consistent effort and not give up? ANS: consistency leads to continued good rebirth, leading to control, liberation and nirvana. A slack means negative karma will roll around and any change will lead to temporary positive karma.
23 Mar 17, 11:15 PM
Choong_Moderator: . Similarly, effort means you don’t give up. You don’t just give up and say, “Oh I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I give up” and then forget, ignore everybody. Why? If you give up, you don’t apply effort, your karma turns to this. Simple. When your karma turns to this, if you’re having one car accident per month, you might have two, you might have three or you might have one big one, your legs are crushed. You don’t know. Your karma will come back. Hence do your sadhana. If you’re doing the sadhana of Lama Tsongkhapa everyday, you’re perfect unless your Guru has advised something else.
23 Mar 17, 11:15 PM
Tek Lee: Good night Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 11:14 PM

23 Mar 17, 11:14 PM

23 Mar 17, 11:14 PM

23 Mar 17, 11:13 PM
Pema.Thinley: We have accumulated enormous negative karma and it needs lots of merits and good actions to purify.
23 Mar 17, 11:13 PM
Jacinta Goh: Do we give up eating? I bet we cannot but if we are attained, we can abide in meditation state longer...
23 Mar 17, 11:13 PM
Sofi: Q14 : giving up is giving into negative karma so it is important to be mindful and apply effort towards positive thoughts, actions for the positive results. Habituation comes from consistent practice.
23 Mar 17, 11:13 PM
Jacinta Goh: A14: Because only through consistent effort, we can see the result. Same as habituation
23 Mar 17, 11:12 PM
Ashlee: When we apply consistent effort, it becomes habituation. Of course it cannot be overnight.
23 Mar 17, 11:12 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Ashlee, does change come overnight?
23 Mar 17, 11:11 PM
Ashlee: When you change, it will lead to positive.
23 Mar 17, 11:10 PM
Choong_Moderator: Very important: Q14. Why is it important for us to apply consistent effort and not give up?
23 Mar 17, 11:10 PM
Caryn: Negative karma change to positive karma which will lead to fulfilment of our goals, happiness, openness, clarity and good rebirth.
23 Mar 17, 11:10 PM
Choong_Moderator: Positive spiral
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Sofi: Q12 : Then the positive karma will activate leading you to positive actions and results. Helping others, being selfless, practicing Dharma which may lead to attainments, good rebirth....
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Choong_Moderator: Remember, the seeds are there
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Jacinta Goh: A12: Leads to white karma. White karma will lead to arriving at your destination. That could be fulfilling your business aspirations. Fulfilling your family aspirations. Fulfilling your temporary aspirations. It will be fulfilled. Then that will lead to more rebirths in good, positive situations. That will again lead to either control, liberation or nirvana. That is the path set out by your good karma.
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
fong: Q12. If half-way through your negative karma, you apply the knowledge of Dharma and decide to change, what can it lead to? ANS: positive dormant karma will open up which will lead to a good destination, fulfilment of your temporary goals, happiness, openness, clarity temporarily
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Choong_Moderator: YES!!!!
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Pema.Thinley: A12. Our positive dormant karma will open.
23 Mar 17, 11:09 PM
Elaine: Ans 12, if we apply dharma and change, and purify, it can lead to happiness, positive results, positive states of rebirth....
23 Mar 17, 11:07 PM
Tek Lee: thank u Choong _/\_
23 Mar 17, 11:07 PM
Caryn: Constant drinking leads to bad health; constant scolding leads to unhappiness created with family members, friends.

23 Mar 17, 11:04 PM
Jacinta Goh: hehehe.. still here. no Pizza.. sorry
23 Mar 17, 11:03 PM
Elaine: Choong, but before we know our Lama's advice, we must first learn right? That means, read the blog posts, FB posts, attend Sunday classes, read up, watch Rinpoche's youtube teachings. No two ways about it.
23 Mar 17, 11:03 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q11. Give an example of how negative actions or karma leads to negative results.

Choong_Moderator: OK Q10. Can you change this to positive karma? How?
23 Mar 17, 10:55 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yes Caryn, you generate and collect more and more negative karma to open up
23 Mar 17, 10:54 PM
Ashlee: When activate negative karma, you will live within negative actions, negative results and then collect more negative karma and it multiplies..
23 Mar 17, 10:54 PM
Caryn: Negative state of minds do not necessary activate negative karma immediately and thus it results in collection of negative karma.
23 Mar 17, 10:53 PM
Pema.Thinley: A9. If we are doing a group work, say we are lazy and could not complete our part of work. That will cause frustration in other group mates and we create more trouble to others.
23 Mar 17, 10:53 PM
Choong_Moderator: Negative spiral
23 Mar 17, 10:53 PM
Elaine: the negative state of mind reinforces negative thoughts and motivations that results in negative action that causes negative karma. This repeats itself and becomes habituation.

Choong_Moderator: Yes fong and sofi, soon it takes over your life
23 Mar 17, 10:52 PM
fong: Q9. When you abide in these negative state of minds, how does it end up in collecting more negative karma? ANS: animal-like behavior, selfishness, laziness, unwilling to change and blame, which are the negative state of minds, the negative karma is activated, negative actions leads to negative results, and then the collection of more negative karma.
23 Mar 17, 10:52 PM
Sofi: Q9 : When you abide in negative state of minds, then your negative karma will open up and for the rest of the day, you may keep thinking of negative thoughts, negative actions and negative results thus creating and collecting more negative karma
23 Mar 17, 10:50 PM
Choong_Moderator: Big question Q9. When you abide in these negative state of minds, how does it end up in collecting more negative karma?

Tek Lee: emmm...... Animal like behavior, laziness, all = ignorance?
23 Mar 17, 10:47 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yup, how to change when you're stuck on your armchair with pizza in one hand and beer in the other with eyes watching the TV?
23 Mar 17, 10:47 PM
fong: Q8. What is laziness? ANS: Laziness is the unwillingness to apply change and not taking responsibility for your problems but always blaming someone else, always in denial
23 Mar 17, 10:47 PM
Tek Lee: maintain in comfort zone
23 Mar 17, 10:47 PM
Jacinta Goh: Laziness... simply not changing and just like the way you are
23 Mar 17, 10:47 PM
Tek Lee: Ans8: Laziness is unwillingly to change
23 Mar 17, 10:46 PM
Caryn: Laziness is not moving ahead and not changing.
23 Mar 17, 10:46 PM
Sofi: Q8 : Laziness is to remain within one's comfort zone and not applying changes for the better or to help others. Not taking responsibility and always blaming others for things that goes wrong.
23 Mar 17, 10:46 PM
Pema.Thinley: Laziness. Laziness is the unwillingness to apply change. Laziness. Unwilling to change and blame. Not taking responsibility for your problems but blaming someone else.
23 Mar 17, 10:46 PM
Ashlee: Laziness is not willing to change and always blaming others. Laziness if when you think the world owes it to you and you are always right.
23 Mar 17, 10:46 PM
Elaine: laziness is staying in our comfort zone.
23 Mar 17, 10:45 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Pema, I thought it was the kitchen for you :)
23 Mar 17, 10:45 PM
Jacinta Goh: If we think carefully, most of our time is like that. Imagine those yogis needed lifetime to abide in Bodhicitta, how about us? Oh dear...
23 Mar 17, 10:45 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q8. What is laziness?
23 Mar 17, 10:45 PM
Pema.Thinley: If you are hungry, you finish everything in the fridge not having thought for your siblings....if you are full then the whole world is okay LOL
23 Mar 17, 10:45 PM
Choong_Moderator: Good answers
23 Mar 17, 10:44 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 7: Animal like behavior is, eat, sleep, eat, sleep; don’t care about anything else, selfish, you don't care abt people ard u. No concern, it’s only about yourself
23 Mar 17, 10:44 PM
Ashlee: If you think on a negative level and activate the negative karma to open, it will come from animal like behaviour where u will be selfish and dont care about anything/anyone else. And you will only think of yourself..me me me.
23 Mar 17, 10:43 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yes, most of the time animals are like that but there are some exceptions of course
23 Mar 17, 10:43 PM
Elaine: animal like behaviour is like one is concerned only for oneself.
23 Mar 17, 10:43 PM
Jacinta Goh: Just couldn't be bothered
23 Mar 17, 10:43 PM
Pema.Thinley: Animal-like behaviour: Eat, sleep, eat, sleep; don’t care about anything else. And 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.
23 Mar 17, 10:42 PM
Sofi: Q7 : negative animal like behaviour is eat sleep eat sleep and more eat sleep. Basically selfish fulfilment of own's comfort without care of others.
23 Mar 17, 10:42 PM
Jacinta Goh: A7: Animal like behavior, such as eat, sleep, **** and simply.. self-defeating mind like being lazy
23 Mar 17, 10:42 PM
fong: Q7. If one day you think on a negative level, then negative karma will open. When negative karma opens, it will come from animal-like behaviour. Please describe this. ANS: ? Eat, sleep, eat, sleep; don’t care about anything else. Animal-like behavior. 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.
23 Mar 17, 10:41 PM
Jacinta Goh: hahaha.. what a coincidence@Pema
23 Mar 17, 10:41 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q7. If one day you think on a negative level, then negative karma will open. When negative karma opens, it will come from animal-like behaviour. Please describe this.
23 Mar 17, 10:41 PM
Pema.Thinley: haha, my friends call me by that name @Jacinta
23 Mar 17, 10:41 PM
Choong_Moderator: OK let's move over to karma
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Jacinta Goh: sorry, Pema
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Ashlee, perfect example
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Jacinta Goh: that's how i knew too, @Pems
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Tek Lee: there's a girl in Thailand who is said the rebirth of Theresa Tang. She sings exactly like Theresa Tang.
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Choong_Moderator: It also explains why some kids are naturally intelligent and wise and do well in their studies
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Pema.Thinley: Yeah, I agree @Jacinta, I watched few videos
23 Mar 17, 10:40 PM
Ashlee: i used to see beggars on the street and just feel sorry for them. But by watching how Rinpoche helps feed the homeless and not just feel sorry for them, i have gained the knowledge. So i start to practice buying food for homeless and through habituation, it comes naturally now without even second thoughts. Thats gaining wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:39 PM
Caryn: I have seen some young kids who can answer maturely and right than adults. I suppose this is the wisdom they carried with them from their past lives.
23 Mar 17, 10:39 PM
Jacinta Goh: I think this explains why certain people have certain inclination like some kids just prefer vege than eating animals.
23 Mar 17, 10:39 PM
Choong_Moderator: Wisdoms are attainments and these carry on in our mindstream
23 Mar 17, 10:38 PM
Tek Lee: maybe that will become born with "talent"?
23 Mar 17, 10:38 PM
Choong_Moderator: YES!
23 Mar 17, 10:37 PM
Tek Lee: emmm..... can wisdom carried on until next life? Coz, some people will still have the imprint of previous life
23 Mar 17, 10:37 PM
Choong_Moderator: "For example listening to a Dharma teacher, reading books or meditating, contemplating or watching seniors who are practiced. So when we have this, we go to this, this goes to this, this goes to this… this will automatically affect our motivation. "
23 Mar 17, 10:37 PM
Caryn: Wisdom is the knowledge we learn along in our lives setting us to do right.
23 Mar 17, 10:37 PM
Choong_Moderator: It cannot appear just like magic!
23 Mar 17, 10:36 PM
Sofi: Q6 : Wisdom is having the clarity of mind to know what is right thing to do. It arises from knowledge.
23 Mar 17, 10:36 PM
Choong_Moderator: One thing leads to another.
23 Mar 17, 10:36 PM
Jacinta Goh: Wisdom is doing the right thing and arise from practicing, study and habituation
23 Mar 17, 10:36 PM
fong: Q6. What is wisdom and how does one gain wisdom? ANS: Wisdom is knowing what to do or automatically doing the right thing. That can only arise from habituation. Habituation can only arise from practicing. Practice can only arise if you know how to practice. Knowledge…and that must arise from study.
23 Mar 17, 10:35 PM
Choong_Moderator: Wisdom is knowing what to do or automatically doing the right thing. That can only arise from habituation. Habituation can only arise from practicing. Practice can only arise if you know how to practice. Knowledge…and that must arise from study.
23 Mar 17, 10:35 PM
Ashlee: Habituation leads to wisdom with the application of knowledge. When we automatically do the right thing, we have gained wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:35 PM
Pema.Thinley: Wisdom is knowing what is right thing to do and it is gained from continuous practice which became our habits.
23 Mar 17, 10:35 PM
Jacinta Goh: hehehe/..
23 Mar 17, 10:35 PM
Choong_Moderator: I'm Malaysian after all, lol
23 Mar 17, 10:34 PM
Choong_Moderator: It always is there @Jacinta
23 Mar 17, 10:34 PM
Elaine: wisdom is from study and contemplation.
23 Mar 17, 10:33 PM
Jacinta Goh: Moderator Choong, looks like your mind is full of good food right now
23 Mar 17, 10:33 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q6. What is wisdom and how does one gain wisdom?
23 Mar 17, 10:33 PM
Choong_Moderator: thumbs up!
23 Mar 17, 10:33 PM
Jacinta Goh: hehehe...having the right motivation like always put others first
23 Mar 17, 10:33 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Elaine, that's a bad habit
23 Mar 17, 10:32 PM
Elaine: we like to scold our kinds sometimes, big boy already still don't know or still like that? We expect people to learn through experience!
23 Mar 17, 10:32 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jacinta, practise what? walking to the kitchen for food?
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Jacinta Goh: practice it until It'll just happen naturally and spontaneously
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Choong_Moderator: Ooooo....
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Tek Lee: lol
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Ashlee: Haha Choong..it's in my oven not fridge.
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Choong_Moderator: Very wise
23 Mar 17, 10:31 PM
Choong_Moderator: :)
23 Mar 17, 10:30 PM
Pema.Thinley: In my case I walk to the kitchen @choong lol
23 Mar 17, 10:30 PM
Elaine: wisdom also comes from application. Remember the wise old owl? Old means experience means wisdom. ahem.
23 Mar 17, 10:30 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Ashlee, what is in your fridge this evening ? :)
23 Mar 17, 10:30 PM
Choong_Moderator: Correct @Pema, I always walk to the fridge when I'm hungry lol
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Jacinta Goh: A5: Study, practice, habituation and then wisdom, the process continues until we are used to it
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Ashlee: Knowledge will translate into practice. Practice will translate into habituation and habituation then leads to wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 5: Knowledge will become practice. Practice will become habit. Habit will turn into wisdom
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Pema.Thinley: A5. "Knowledge will translate into practice. Practice will translate into habituation. Habituation will translate into wisdom because when we do something enough times, it becomes automatic no matter how hard it is in the beginning."
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Elaine: knowledge dispels ignorance. the opposite of ignorance is wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:29 PM
Choong_Moderator: If we did not have the knowledge that there is food in the fridge and the wisdom to find food when we are hungry, we will starve
23 Mar 17, 10:28 PM
Tek Lee: i see.... thank u Elaine :)
23 Mar 17, 10:27 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q5, How does knowledge lead to wisdom?
23 Mar 17, 10:27 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yes @fong, that is question 5 lol
23 Mar 17, 10:27 PM
Caryn: Is it appropriate?
23 Mar 17, 10:27 PM
Elaine: apt = appropriate
23 Mar 17, 10:26 PM
fong: Hi, Tek Lee
23 Mar 17, 10:26 PM
Tek Lee: what is apt?
23 Mar 17, 10:26 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Tek Lee's example of being hungry and looking for food is apt
23 Mar 17, 10:26 PM
Elaine: Why ignorance? Because we did not know better. When we did not know dharma, our decisions were possibly different from now. When we know there is such a thing as karma, we keep checking our motivations.
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yes, when you study, have some knowledge and wisdom, intent or motivation will arise. A kind of decision making process I suppose.
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Tek Lee: hi Fong
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Caryn: Motivation arises knowledge, practice and wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Tek Lee: Motivation arise through study
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Elaine, ignorance!
23 Mar 17, 10:25 PM
Tek Lee: yes Choong :D
23 Mar 17, 10:24 PM
Elaine: Jacinta, yes.
23 Mar 17, 10:24 PM
fong: arises from study, not necessarily study, as in knowledge and understanding or wisdom. Knowledge will translate into practice. Practice will translate into habituation. Habituation is translating into wisdom
23 Mar 17, 10:24 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Tek Lee, because we have the wisdom of looking for food when we are hungry :)
23 Mar 17, 10:24 PM
Elaine: I believe ignorance or lack of wisdom can cause a particular negative motivation.
23 Mar 17, 10:24 PM
Jacinta Goh: A4: Motivation arises through learning
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Pema.Thinley: A4. Motivation arises from strudy.
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Tek Lee: if we think that we are hungry now, we will feel like eating :D
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Jacinta Goh: Elaine, you reminded me of the 4 basis for a completion of karma
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Ashlee: Hey Caryn
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 4: Motivation arise from our thoughts
23 Mar 17, 10:23 PM
Ashlee: Motivation arises from our knowledge, understanding or wisdom.
23 Mar 17, 10:22 PM
Caryn: Hi Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 10:22 PM
Ashlee: Hi Hi Choong & Tek Lee.
23 Mar 17, 10:22 PM
Tek Lee: hi Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 10:22 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q4. How does one's motivation arise?
23 Mar 17, 10:21 PM
Choong_Moderator: Good evening Ashlee
23 Mar 17, 10:21 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Caryn, yes, good example, and we will end up isolated and unhappy
23 Mar 17, 10:21 PM
Elaine: Of course you have the karma of harming the dog, but your intention was not to do that, so the karma is less, not the full blow.
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Ashlee: Hi evening Rinpoche & everyone
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Pema, yes, driven by motivation
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Caryn: Sorry..I am not very good in explaining but I hope it makes sense.
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Jacinta Goh: yes, Moderator. One thing leads to another.
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Elaine: Eg. you kill an animal on purpose and with glee, after you have done it you are happy you have done it. The intention was negative and it leads to negative karma. If you accidentally hit a dog on the road, and feel full of regret and get down to save/help it, the karma will not be as bad.
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jacinta, yes, we will end up lazy, envious?
23 Mar 17, 10:20 PM
Pema.Thinley: The actions should be similar to the causes that created that particular dormant karma?
23 Mar 17, 10:19 PM
Caryn: For example, my purpose of helping a friend is to gain popularity but not with sincerity of actually helping her, people will eventually know the real me.
23 Mar 17, 10:19 PM
Choong_Moderator: OK I'll give an example. If our motivation one morning is to boost our ego by outrunning the car on our right/left, a negative karmic seed may ripen and we get into an accident
23 Mar 17, 10:19 PM
Jacinta Goh: Example; It will be negative karma if we still stick to our parents hoping we can inherit some of their fortune
23 Mar 17, 10:17 PM
Choong_Moderator: anybody can give an example?
23 Mar 17, 10:16 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yes @Caryn, can you give an example
23 Mar 17, 10:16 PM
Jairo Jamyang Pawo: Ooops. Got to go out and take out Coco the dog. Bye. https://www.facebook.com/CocoTheDogLongwood/
23 Mar 17, 10:16 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jairo, karma is the action that is the result of our motivation.
23 Mar 17, 10:16 PM
Caryn: If our motivation is not sincere/negative, then it will trigger the dormant karma to become negative karma. Positive motivation creates positive karma.
23 Mar 17, 10:14 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jairo, the very basic driver of karma or our actions is our motivation.
23 Mar 17, 10:14 PM
Jacinta Goh: A3: It depends on your motivation that triggers positive or negative karma to open.
23 Mar 17, 10:14 PM
Jairo Jamyang Pawo: Om Ah Hum. Can karma be equated to the memories stored in the subconscious mind? Or simply all memories?
23 Mar 17, 10:14 PM
Tek Lee: hi welcome Jairo
23 Mar 17, 10:13 PM
Elaine: hello Jairo
23 Mar 17, 10:13 PM
Choong_Moderator: Hello and welcome @Jairo
23 Mar 17, 10:13 PM
Jairo Jamyang Pawo: What is the defining factor that triggers a certain dormant karma to get triggered? I don't know. Perhaps many critical conditions, and the mind of the individual?
23 Mar 17, 10:13 PM
Choong_Moderator: So everyone understand how motivation triggers a particular dormant karma?
23 Mar 17, 10:13 PM
Elaine: What is scary is that not necessarily an action has to happen. It can arise from a thought, ie motivation through our thoughts ie mind.
23 Mar 17, 10:12 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 3: Our motivation is the defining factor that trigger a certain dormant karma
23 Mar 17, 10:12 PM
Caryn: Our motivation.
23 Mar 17, 10:12 PM
Pema.Thinley: A3. Motivation
23 Mar 17, 10:11 PM
Jacinta Goh: A2: Dormant karma are those unopened karma that stays there until something triggers it.
23 Mar 17, 10:11 PM
Elaine: It is our motivation, action arising from a particular motivation.
23 Mar 17, 10:11 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Pema, yes, but as we will learn, we can change which dormant karma sprouts :)
23 Mar 17, 10:11 PM
Pema.Thinley: And we don't know when it will sprout :(
23 Mar 17, 10:11 PM
Choong_Moderator: OK Q3. What is the defining factor that triggers a certain dormant karma to get triggered?
23 Mar 17, 10:10 PM
Caryn: Yes we are indeed.
23 Mar 17, 10:10 PM
Elaine: yes walking time bombs.
23 Mar 17, 10:10 PM
Caryn: Dormant karma is karma waiting to ripe when something triggers it.
23 Mar 17, 10:10 PM
Choong_Moderator: We are all full of dormant karma
23 Mar 17, 10:10 PM
Choong_Moderator: Thank you Pema
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Elaine: Hi Tek Lee
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Tek Lee: until something trigger it
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Pema.Thinley: A2. "A dormant karma is like a seed that’s in the ground that doesn’t sprout until it rains."
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Tek Lee: hi Elaine
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 2: Dormant karma is something like a karma that never ripen for a very long time
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Pema.Thinley: Hello Tek Lee, Hello Caryn :)
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Elaine: Dormant karma is one that doesn’t open till something triggers it to open. K
23 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Caryn: Hi Tek Lee, Jacinta, Pema
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Tek Lee: hi Caryn, hi Jacita, hi Pema :)
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Choong_Moderator: Good Q2. What is dormant karma?
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Jacinta Goh: A1: Neutral, Positive and negative
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Tek Lee: Ans 1: Negative pathway, positive pathway and neutral pathway.
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Caryn: The three pathways are Positive, negative and neutral
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Choong_Moderator: Yup
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Pema.Thinley: A1. Positive, Negative and Neutral
23 Mar 17, 10:08 PM

Dorje Shugden’s Mantra
Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound.

Incense Offering Prayers to Dorje Shugden
Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world.

From a Free Thinker to a Buddhist
Since the first day I met Rinpoche until today, his compassion and motivation has never wavered; he is always consistent in benefiting others. With such a great example from my Guru, I realized that no other path is more important than my spiritual path, and I want to spend my remaining days in Dharma and to do work that benefits others.

Dorje Shugden’s Mantra
Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound.

Pastor Shin: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/TCM30.jpg Thank you nut'hello for sharing. Interesting post about Kristang language. On the blog, we had a picture of them in their traditional attire. The Portuguese-Eurasians are descendants of 16th century Portuguese settlers who made their home in Malacca. Their traditional attire strongly reflects their heritage. The colours black and red dominate their traditional costumes. The men wear jackets and trousers with waist sashes, while the women wear broad front-layered skirts.

Liang Jing: Question 3: What are some of the reasons people fear of ghosts?ANS: The reasons that we are fear of ghosts perhaps it is as basic as being afraid of that which we cannot predict, like death, ending up alone or the inability to fulfil a desire.
20 Mar 17, 01:24 PM
Liang Jing: Question 2: What are the differences between a ghost and spirit as described in the article? ANS:. Ghosts are believed to be lost souls, belonging to those who were once alive and who may have unfinished business in the world before they died and therefore are trapped in purgatory and spirits are beings that have not been human before and are believed to exist on a completely different plain than the one we live on.
20 Mar 17, 01:17 PM

Welcome to TsemRinpoche.com. I agree with you that it is rare for people to give unconditionally. Perhaps these 2 posts will inspire you and all of us to start.

52 Years of Generosity http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/guest-contributors/52-years-of-generosity.html

Yesterday I experienced true generosity… http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/letters-cards-gifts/yesterday-i-experienced-true-generosity.html
This 2nd post especially, makes me think seriously about generosity, that it is not about how much one has at all.

Nice to see you here and do drop by more often. You can also leave comments at the bottom of each article, scroll down to the "Leave a Reply" section.

19 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Beatrix: I agree with Lucas and Julien too, horror films play a very important role in this particular matter.
19 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Mark S: Hello everyone. My answer in the form of a question. :) The Toyol can be a baby that has died, then dug up and reanimated by black magic, kept in a jar until the possessor chooses to use the Toyol to steal for them. Are the black magicians in fact the real ghosts? Whatever it is, Dorje Shugden dispelling black magic must work. I have never not had one steal from me lately. :)
19 Mar 17, 10:09 PM
Julien: Q3: I think the main reason why people fear ghosts of because of modern day horror movies. They portray ghosts in a very scary way.
19 Mar 17, 10:08 PM
Beatrix: Conclusion: In most cases, people are afraid because ghosts can inflict harm on people. Most of the us may not have encountered one before but we've heard all kinds of stories related to them, and most of them are pretty scary therefore I think that's why people are scared. Plus with all the horror films available just anywhere, it has made people fear even more.
19 Mar 17, 10:06 PM
Lucas Roth: A3: I believe that people fear ghosts because of what horror movies and media make them out to be, I also believe that all people are scared of what they do not know. Ghosts are also used in stores to scare children of old when they were young. They are deeply rooted into tradition with a sense of fear.
19 Mar 17, 10:05 PM
Nicklaus san: Question 3: What are some of the reasons people fear of ghosts? ANS: Mostly its because of religion or tradition. We were often told about these kind of stuff when we were young and when we grow up we will tell our children to generations.
19 Mar 17, 10:04 PM
Naomi: Q3 ANS: Because they are afraid of the unknown.
19 Mar 17, 10:03 PM
Ji shuen: fear of not knowing
19 Mar 17, 10:03 PM
Ji shuen: Could be culture, tradition or religion that drives us to make distinctions between what’s good and evil and that in death, we will experience judgement.
19 Mar 17, 10:00 PM
Beatrix: Question 3: What are some of the reasons people fear of ghosts?
19 Mar 17, 10:00 PM
Beatrix: Conclusion 2: Ghosts are said to have been humans before whereas spirits are thought to never have been humans before.
19 Mar 17, 09:57 PM
Nicklaus san: 2: What are the differences between a ghost and spirit as described in the article?ANS: Ghosts are usually be classifies as beings meaning that they were previously in a body or you could say its a soul and spirits was never been able to enter a human body or ever been into one.
19 Mar 17, 09:55 PM
Lucas Roth: A2: ghosts are seen as wondering or lost souls of the previously living, wandering over unfinished business. Spirits are thought to never have been human, those that exist on a different plain.
19 Mar 17, 09:55 PM
Naomi: Q2 ANS: A ghost is said to be the soul of a person who was once alive and may have unfinished business in the world before. A spirit is said to have never been a human before.
19 Mar 17, 09:54 PM
Julien: Question 2: What are the differences between a ghost and spirit as described in the article? ANS: Ghosts are thought to be the remnants of humans who had lived before and died an untimely death. Whereas sprits on the other hand are said to have never been human before and are believed to exist on a completely different plain that what we live on.
19 Mar 17, 09:54 PM
Edward Ooi: Question 2: What are the differences between a ghost and spirit as described in the article? Answer: The traditional meaning of ghosts you could say are simply manifestations of the belief that there is life after death. Ghosts are believed to be lost souls, belonging to those who were once alive and who may have unfinished business in the world before they died and therefore are trapped in purgatory, which is believed to be a dimension between life and a higher ascension like heaven. Spirits however, are somewhat different. These are beings that have not been human before and are believed to exist on a completely different plain than the one we live on. Spookily, these can be demonic spirits that have manifested not from restless human souls but rather are manifestations of evil and are thought to have risen from hell itself to cause mischief and mayhem on our living world.
19 Mar 17, 09:54 PM

Tsem Rinpoche: Make offerings and incense to Dorje Shugden daily to gather good energy for our environments and our minds.
19 Mar 17, 03:18 PM
Elaine: In most instances, there is usually the element of "Me" in common acts of giving. It is not common that people give without expecting anything in return. When talking about small sums, or rather, spare cash or no longer needed items, since big/small is relative, it is easy to give without expectations. But if it is a "larger" sum, then it is harder to do it without feeling the pinch and without expecting the act to bring some kind of mileage or return.

The Oracles of Dorje Shugden
Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves invoking the deity (usually a Dharma Protector) to descend into a human oracle. The word ‘kuten’ (Wylie: sku rten) is used by Tibetans to refer to a human vessel who is able to temporarily receive the mind/consciousness of a deity or sometimes a spirit and act as a medium between the world of humans and the subtle spiritual realms of the deities.

Generosity = Giving = Gifts
It is quite wondrous that the above three words all begin with the letter “G”. Verifying the definition and meaning of these three words will also lead us to conclude that they are closely linked.

Dermal Ridges
Human dermal ridges run horizontally across the feet, while in primates, the ridges run diagonally. But in the Bigfoot castings, the dermal ridges run vertically across the side of the feet. This goes to show that the Bigfoot footprint casting was clearly not made by a man or an ape.

Dear everyone, sorry for the pictures of the dogs but we have to realize this happens to all the animals we eat. Some animals suffer even more than this in captivity or force to breed or many other pains for us as we force them to suffer. To create awareness is important although painful to see these types of pictures... Tsem Rinpoche

Yau Mun: Thank you Rinpoche and Joy for moderating. Have a good weekend ahead.
18 Mar 17, 12:37 PM
Yau Mun: Q6. Ans: Personally, Daoxin's sudden enlightenment story attracted my attention, as it gives us hope that we too can achieve it as well. What did you learn from this blog post? ANS: A qualify spiritual guide can help bring one to enlightenment faster. Transformation of oneself is crucial, if we want to help our guru to spread the dharma. If we do not have the positive value in use, we will not attract anyone and worst it give our guru a bad image.

Sharon Ong: Ten thousand things, all in this breath -

Why are people in this world so busy?


For just one breath they say busy, mine


busy a whole lifetime for "me"


but when this breath is cut off


you let go of the whole universe.


Why not let go from the start?



 -万事万物都在呼吸中 


 人在世界上忙,为什么忙?


 就是为了一口气在。 就是: “忙,忙,什么都是我的,我的!


 只是为“我”忙了一生。


 一口气断了


 天大的事也就放下了


 何苦不早点放下呢?

18 Mar 17, 12:24 PM
JP: 6. Which is your favourite story amongst the 6 Patriarchs and why? What did you learn from this blog post? My favourite is Huineng because although he was illiterate, he was able to gain deep insight of the teachings. I learnt that Chan Buddhism was considered heretic because they were a new sect of Buddhism. They were even persecuted at one point. Because of their determination, they preserved the lineage and eventually spread Chan Buddhism far and wide.

Victor.C: 5. Who is Daoxin and How did Daoxin became enlightened? ANS: Daoxin was born to a family with the surname ‘Si-ma’ in the Yongning County of Qizhou, today known as Wuxue City of the Hubei Province.

18 Mar 17, 12:22 PM
Victor.C: 4. What was one of the most important aspects of the Chan Buddhism teachings, and which sutra did it came from? ANS: One of the most important aspects of the early Chan teachings by Bodhidharma and Huike was that of attaining sudden enlightenment rather than the gradual approach to enlightenment characteristic of the Indian tradition. Huike and Bodhidharma attributed their teachings to the Lankavatara Sutra, which stresses self-realisation and transcending words and thoughts.

Daoxin become enlighten when while his master Sengcan ask him back a question “Why then seek release when no one restrains you?” This is through his request for his master to instruct him on how to achieve release.

julia tan: 6. Which is your favourite story amongst the 6 Patriarchs and why? What did you learn from this blog post? I like all of the stories. They are all masters of Dharma that have practices and brought Dharma to countless people in their own way. They opened up my eyes of how powerful and important of one must have strong guru devotion.
18 Mar 17, 12:16 PM

18 Mar 17, 12:16 PM
Victor.C: 3. Who is Bodhidharma, and what was the famous tale about him? ANS: Bodhidharma was an Indian monk who lived between 5th and 6th Century CE, and was credited to have been the founding father of Chan Buddhism in China. That is why he is the first of the Six Patriarchs of Chan Buddhism also in Chinese they called him Da Mo. He was famous to crossed the river while balanced atop a tiny reed, which has since been frequently depicted in Chinese art. While at the Shaolin Temple, he sat down to meditate for nine years while facing a wall in a cave, earning the name ‘Wall-Gazing Brahman’. and the founder of Shaolinvmartial arts.
18 Mar 17, 12:15 PM
Pastor Patsy: 6. Which is your favourite story amongst the 6 Patriarchs and why? ANS: My favourite story is of Huinen who is the 6th Patriach of Chan Buddhism. He is barbaric and uneducated but because of his deep insight, he surpassed his fellow senior monks who were great scholars. This shows that one does not have to be smart or clever but with correct motivate and meditation one can achieved enlightenment.

Soon Huat: @Sharon, yes. After reading it, I was google the story more by myself. It was amazing; the commitment they have shown in Dharma path.
18 Mar 17, 12:14 PM
JP: 5. Who is Daoxin and How did Daoxin became enlightened? Daoxin is the 4th Patriarch of Chan Buddhism. He became enlightened when he requested Sengcan, "“I ask for the Master’s compassion. Please instruct me on how to achieve release.”Sengcan asked, “Is there someone who binds you?” Daoxin thought awhile, and answered, “There is no such person.” Sengcan then asked, “Why then seek release when no one restrains you?” This is the time when Daoxin became enlightened.
18 Mar 17, 12:14 PM
Pastor Henry Ooi: Q6: I like the story of Dayi Daoxin who at the age of 14 was already attained. He possessed the wisdom and compassion to subdue bandits wanting to pillage a town in Ji Province and they disbanded their attack on the town. Another story is that he offered his head to be cut, at the order of Emperor Tai Zong who was infuriated with Daoxin for turning down his requests three times after refusing to heed the Imperial decree. This shows he had realised Emptiness. This impressed the Emperor so much that he honoured Daoxin as an exemplary Buddhist master. And after Daoxin passed away, the Emperor posthumously bestowed him the title of "Dayi" meaning "The Great Healer."

18 Mar 17, 12:12 PM
Sharon Ong: @shelly - Pastor Shin: @Sharon & @Joy, There are 2 ways on how Bodhidharma is closely connected to us Kecharians. One of it is this: One of Zong Rinpoche’s (Tsem Rinpoche’s root guru) previous lives was the famous Indian master Bodhidharma who was famous to have brought Zen/Chen Buddhism to China and is regarded as the first patriarch of this tradition in China. He has an exceptional story of transmitting the teachings without words. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/external-article/bodhidharma
