Pastor Antoinette: Offerings to the Sangha, The tradition of wearing robes has been passed down from the founder of Buddhism, Shakyamuni himself. Wearing the robes represents the vows that an ordained person holds, and reflects their commitment to bring happiness and comfort, and to relieve the sufferings of sentient beings. So every day a monk or nun continues to don the robes and hold their vows is another day they create immeasurable merit for themselves and their sponsors. http://www.vajrasecrets.com/offerings-to-sangha http://www.vajrasecrets.com/media/catalog/product/cache/2/small_image/295x295/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/r/o/robes-wisdom-set_1.jpg http://www.vajrasecrets.com/media/catalog/product/cache/2/small_image/295x295/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/r/o/robes-generosity-set_1.jpg

Wah Ying: 3) Give your opinion about veganism.Ans: I think is good to be a veganism, because we can stop harming animals also give us a better environment and is good for our health .
22 Jan 17, 10:01 PM
Beatrix: Conclusion: When most of us hear about veganism, I'm sure that the one thing that comes up to our mind is it's very difficult and takes too much effort, some may also find it unnecessary. But if we look around and observe those people who take on a vegan diet, their body in general is healthier and they feel lighter. Yes it takes a lot of effort but I'm sure it's worth the effort and time.
22 Jan 17, 10:01 PM
Pavara Lam: 3. Give your opinion about veganism. ANS: Veganism is a really good way to 1.Help preserve the environment for the future generations 2. reduce the amount of animals killed, 3. boost our body's immune system. As such we can help our planet endure for generations to come.
22 Jan 17, 09:59 PM
Nicklaus san: : 3. Give your opinion about veganism. ANS: I think its good that people are doing veganism as it helps the animals and the environment to grow and I hope more people venture into it.
22 Jan 17, 09:58 PM
Naomi: Ans: I think that veganism is not something easy and it is quite challenging but it benefits you as you stop eating meat and also live a healthier lifestyle.
22 Jan 17, 09:57 PM
Lucas: 3. Give your opinion about veganism. ANS: I feel that is it a challenge for sure to live a life completely vegan. As living in today's world, it is hard to filter out everything. I think it is the healthiest way of living and the purest way of living as long as your body is properly supplemented.
22 Jan 17, 09:55 PM
Keng Hwa: 3. Give your opinion about veganism.

From what I hear, it's quite hard, but also rewarding. But with the changing attitudes of people and recognition veganism has, I think it is getting easier for people to go vegan. It is a good cause to go vegan in terms of health and benefitting animals. Though nothing is perfect, and there are butthurt people who are vegan, the act in itself is good, and I think that we shouldn't let some rude people stop us IF we want to convert. It's up to us, really.
22 Jan 17, 09:55 PM
Pavara Lam: 2. State 3 benefits of observing a vegan diet. Ans: Less risk of getting cancer, no sentient beings die for your stomach,help reduce pollution cause by slaughterhouses.
22 Jan 17, 09:55 PM
Jutika Lam: Give your opinion about veganism. In my opinion, veganism and changing to a veganism is a really good idea. We should bear in mind that going vegan is not just for the sake of less animals being slaughtered for our food but we should also know that going on a vegan diet will help become much more healthier in many ways with the chances of getting many diseases being much lower compared to people who eat meat.
22 Jan 17, 09:55 PM
Julien: 3. Give your opinion about veganism. ANS: I think that veganism is good as it improves our lifestyles and makes us healthier overall. I also like that it means less animals suffer to provide food for us.
22 Jan 17, 09:55 PM
Edward Ooi: 3. Give your opinion about veganism. Answer: I just love the idea. Not only that you help your own body to be healthier, you can also lessen amount of animals being killed. It doesn't matter if you are able to save only a life or two, they still matter. And when you want to convince others, you can use yourself as the perfect example. Just simply wonderful.
22 Jan 17, 09:52 PM
Beatrix: 3. Give your opinion about veganism.
22 Jan 17, 09:51 PM
Beatrix: Conclusion 3: a) Less animals will be killed to satisfy our taste buds. b) Generally we'll have a healthier body, free of toxins especially those from meat. c) More animals to maintain a balanced Eco system.

22 Jan 17, 05:17 PM
Pastor Shin: Hi Tendok,
I agree with you. An example is Buddha Manjushri who emanates in various forms in four cycles of tantra – kriya, charya, yoga and maha-anuttarayoga – he can be approached and reached by any tantra for any level of persons. Manjushri also emanates as Dharma Protectors such as Kalarupa, Four-faced Mahakala and Dorje Shugden. There is a very good post here on Manjushri, which I would like to share with you: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/all-about-manjushri.html

jerry_sito: What is a Dharma Protector? #ClickHere 👉 http://bit.ly/1qlv52n 🐦 The practice of propitiating a Dharma Protector (Sanskrit: Dharmapala) descended from ancient India. It was brought to Tibet by renowned translators who carried on their backs the great Indian Buddhist treatises along with other Protector practices such as Mahakala, Kalarupa, Vaishravana, Palden Lhamo, Setrap and so forth. This was how the Dharma Protector practice arrived and became established in Tibet. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2wB0veUoAAHk1g.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2wB0viUoAAP1E6.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2wB0vjVQAEJXqD.jpg

tendok: Buddhas are always ready to do whatever for sentient beings. They are always all the day and all the night work and meditate for protecting them from suffering. They have great compassion and endless love for sentient beings.So we are very lucky to have great chance to see buddha again in this world. i have no doubt buddhas can emanate everywhere and in any form for sentient beings. i will be always in praying to come again by again in this world and spread pure Buddha's teaching in all around the world.

21 Jan 17, 12:13 PM
Pastor Tat Ming: Q6. Conclusion what did you learn from this article? A6. Australian Aborigines deserve their human rights as much as the White Australians. How could the Australian Judiciary System not respect their rights? How could the authorities not protect lynette?
21 Jan 17, 12:11 PM
Soon Huat: Thank You Rinpoche. Thank You Joy, Pastors and everyone in the chat room. It is heavy topic. Sorry with my anger and sadness toward the victims.
21 Jan 17, 12:11 PM
Joy_Moderator: @Andrea agree but not just racial, I think all forms of discrimination should stop.
21 Jan 17, 12:10 PM
Joy_Moderator: @Soon Huat not only in Australia, it is still happening in America and even in Britain like what Keng Nam said earlier.
21 Jan 17, 12:10 PM
Andrea Lai: 6. Conclusion what did you learn from this article? Ans. Racial discrimination should take it as an important issue to many especially we are living in this multi racial country. We should learn acceptance of other people believes, cultures and races.

Soon Huat: 6. Conclusion what did you learn from this article? Answer: We should treat others with compassion. All beings including animals have right to live. As we know karma, they have been struggling for hundreds years in other realm before they came to the world with animals/human form. They have right to live to do good deeds for their future lives. To be honest, I am sad with anger that in the end, justice is not brought up. I am sure it broke a lot of people hope and trust. I can not imagine that this happens in developed country such as Australia. Where is human conscience? Where have they hidden their conscience? I hope the unbiased justice system will be restored, the parents start instilled good thought to their children to treat others fairly regardless of their races

21 Jan 17, 12:06 PM
Joy_Moderator: 6. Conclusion what did you learn from this article?
Reading these kind of stories make you realise that any form of prejudice, hate and discrimination is totally wrong and a huge injustice to humanity. It is amazing that even in 2017 we still experience this. Therefore, when there is any kind of discrimination, we must all stand up and speak up, otherwise it is the same as you doing it to the victims. It reminds me of this quote from Martin Luther King and rings truth even for the Dorje Shugden ban and discrimination felt by all of us who practice it. It amazes me how people can think they are fight for a “good cause” by putting another person whom they do not know down and concocting all kinds of lies to go along with it. A wrong can never make it right and no matter how much they justify it, it is still wrong.

Andrea Lai: 5. What happened when she became a teenager? Did she seek help when she was abused? Ans: She grew into a tough-to-handle teen who fell in with a bad crowd, involved into drugs and alcohol. Got pregnant at 16 and her children were fathered by men who controlled her, beat her, left her body covered in a constant constellation of bruises. She tried to fight back, but she was outmatched.

21 Jan 17, 12:00 PM
Uncle Eddie: Q-Ans: Whatever the truth, the horror of Lynete's disgusting death has shaken not only a nation long uncomfortable talking about race, the denial has shaken even the whole wide World if all people would have the opportunity to know about this shameful happening! What Anthropololist W.E.H has dubbed the denial as "The Great Australian Silence" is perfectly correct and right, except it would sound much more better by adding a word, "Buried" after the wording Australian, to make it, "The Great Australian "Buried" Silence".

- She adopted the eagle as her totem, or spiritual emblem.
- She was fiercely competitive especially with boys; she threw stones farther than them, climbed trees higher. Thelma, her mother use to daydreamed that her athletic daughter might one day be an Olympian.
- Her family sometimes called her Knocky, because it seems nothing could knock her down. One day while picking lemons, two dogs attacked her, tearing into her leg and prompting a trip to the hospital. Undaunted, she returned to the lemon tree the next day. She was a tough little girl.

Keng Nam: And Jan Barhamthe former New South Wales state lawmaker was appalled by how the Australians treated the Aboriginals citing Lynette’s case asan example of that cultural ignorance or denial that don’t value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person.
21 Jan 17, 11:40 AM
Jenn_Yuen: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Answer : Today, Aboriginal people only make up just 3 percent of the population of 24 million. It shrank drastically over the years since the British claimed Australia in the 1700s by declaring it being owned by no one, ignoring the fact that Aboriginal people had lived there for at least 50,000 years. They were forced off the land and exposed to new diseases. Jan Barham said that the shame of the country was the treatment of Aboriginal people and he commented that Lynette’s case was an example of that cultural ignorance or denial that they did not value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person
21 Jan 17, 11:39 AM
Joy_Moderator: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. - Today, Aboriginal people make up just 3% of the population of 24 million Australian.
- When the British came and claimed Australia in the 1700s, they did so by declaring it “terra nullius” (owned by no one). They ignored the fact that Aboriginal people had lived there for at least 50,000 years. Forced off the land by colonists and they were exposed to new diseases, hence the Aboriginals’ population shrank drastically.
“The shame of this country is the treatment of Aboriginal people,” says former New South Wales state lawmaker Jan Barham. “Lynette’s case — it’s an example of that cultural ignorance or denial that we don’t value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person.”

Andrea Lai: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Ans.The population is only 3% out of 24million which shows the population of oboriginal is very low.Part of the reason is ignorance and people are not valuing their own country native culture anymore.
21 Jan 17, 11:38 AM
Uncle Eddie: Q3-Ans: The British claimed Australia in the 1700 was declared "Terra Mulius" meaning owned by no one" where aborigine people had lived for 50,000 years; forced off land by colonists(according to history), and exposed to new diseases. The Indigenous population has shrank drastically. Today it seemed they make up only 3% of the popupulation of 24 million, and they are far behind everyone else!

21 Jan 17, 11:37 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Ans: Jan Barham, the former New South Wales state lawmaker, said: “The shame of this country is the treatment of Aboriginal people.” “Lynette’s case — it’s an example of that cultural ignorance or denial that we don’t value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person.” The Aboriginal population is only 3% now. They were forced of there lands and were exposed to new diseases brought to Australia by the colonisers.

Today, Aboriginal people make up just 3 percent of the population of 24 million. And by almost any measure — from health to wealth, employment to imprisonment — they lag far behind everyone else.
“The shame of this country is the treatment of Aboriginal people,” says former New South Wales state lawmaker Jan Barham. “Lynette’s case — it’s an example of that cultural ignorance or denial that we don’t value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person.”

21 Jan 17, 11:36 AM
JP: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Today's aboriginal population is around 3% of the total population of 24 million. It shrank because they were forced to leave by the colonists and were also exposed to new diseases brought in by the colonists. Jan Barham said, "The shame of this country is the treatment of Aboriginal people".
21 Jan 17, 11:35 AM
Pastor Henry Ooi: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Ans: 720,000 or 3% of 24 million people. The aborigines population shrank because they were forced off their land by the colonists, and they were exposed and contracted diseases brought by the colonists. Quoted by Jan Barham “The shame of this country is the treatment of Aboriginal people. Lynette’s case — it’s an example of that cultural ignorance or denial that we don’t value equally the lives and the treatment of an Aboriginal person.”

21 Jan 17, 11:35 AM
Keng Nam: 3. What is the population of Aboriginals today and how did it shrank? What did Jan Barham said regarding Aboriginal. Ans: the population of Aboriginals today is roughly 3/4 of a million in a country population of 24 million. The aboriginals were the indigineous popluation of Australia but when it was colonised by the British in the 17th century, they brought in new diseases which the aboriginal were susceptible and hence their population shrank

Andrea Lai: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled?Ans: Urge and pressure from outrage public
21 Jan 17, 11:26 AM
Soon Huat: @Wai Theng, I cannot imagine this thing was happened in 21st century.
21 Jan 17, 11:25 AM
Joy_Moderator: Yes @Wei Theng goes to show how racist Aus is. It also angered the Aboriginal rights advocates. Many saw the familiarity of what happened to Lynette both before and after her death.
21 Jan 17, 11:25 AM
Wei Theng: It is very sad reading that so many things need to be done to bring the case to court. If not, there is no justice...
21 Jan 17, 11:25 AM
Joy_Moderator: Thank you @Uncle Eddy
21 Jan 17, 11:25 AM
Soon Huat: “If it was two Indigenous people who’d done it to a white girl,” her stepfather Gordon Davis says bluntly, “they’d be in jail.”Answer:Due to enormous pressure from an outraged public.
21 Jan 17, 11:24 AM
Joy_Moderator: Yes @Nic it is extremely sad that the whole nation had to do something to put pressure on the persecutors. If the law cannot protect you, who can?
21 Jan 17, 11:23 AM
Uncle Eddie: Q2-Ans: The relactance to prosecute the white suspects highlighted a deadly divide in Australia, despite amid ernomous pressure and the urging of the coroner and police, the prosecutors still refused to try the men charged with the death. Until the great outrage, the case was finally brought to the court.
21 Jan 17, 11:22 AM
Joy_Moderator: This is another thing people did >> People protested outside the office of a local politician.
21 Jan 17, 11:21 AM
Joy_Moderator: Thank you @JP
21 Jan 17, 11:21 AM
Jenn_Yuen: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? Answer : The case was only brought to court 5 years later after enormous pressure from an outraged public
21 Jan 17, 11:21 AM
JP: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? The public was outraged when the murderers were not brought to court. The media came in and wrote headlines such as "VILE" and "No Justice for Tragic Norma". A social media campaign was launched called #JusticeForNorma.
21 Jan 17, 11:20 AM
Joy_Moderator: Besides what @Keng Nam said ... The Australian media jumped on the case and there were headlines blaring “VILE” and “No Justice for Tragic Norma” followed, a reference to Lynette’s nickname. A #JusticeForNorma campaign launched on social media.
21 Jan 17, 11:20 AM
Joy_Moderator: Excellent @Keng Nam
21 Jan 17, 11:19 AM
nicholas: Q2: What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? Ans: For 5 years, despite the urgings of the coroner and police, prosecutors refused to try the men charged with her death. It was not until June, amid enormous pressure from an outraged public, that they at last agreed to bring the case to court. The racism is very obvious in this case and if the situation happen the other way round where is the victim is white and it’s the Indigenous people who did it, surely both of them will be in the jail already without much delay.
21 Jan 17, 11:19 AM
Joy_Moderator: Pastor Antoinette yes they did. Could you name a few of the things people did to put pressure on Lynette injustice case?
21 Jan 17, 11:19 AM
Pastor Henry Ooi: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? Answer: public's outcry and pressure.
21 Jan 17, 11:19 AM
Keng Nam: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? Ans: The media caught on and a campaign was launched on social media gathering 10 of thousands of petitions demanding the head prosecutor to justify his actions of non-prosecution on two separate occassions
21 Jan 17, 11:19 AM
Soon Huat: Good Morning Joy, sorry I am late
21 Jan 17, 11:18 AM
Joy_Moderator: Good Morning Soon Huat!
21 Jan 17, 11:18 AM
lew: A2: Australian TV media had to jump in, and #JusticeForNorma campaign launched on social media, etc to get the case going...
21 Jan 17, 11:18 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? Ans. The public did continue to put pressure against the prosecutors for 5 years before they were charged.
21 Jan 17, 11:18 AM
Wei Theng: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled? --> enormous pressure from an outraged public, that they at last agreed to bring the case to court.
21 Jan 17, 11:18 AM
Soon Huat: Good Morning Rinpoche and everyone in chat room
21 Jan 17, 11:17 AM
Joy_Moderator: @Andrea yes you are right, it is very clear it is racial discrimination. Sad isn't it that the natives are always at the losing end, even in America, same thing but not as bad as Aus
21 Jan 17, 11:16 AM
Joy_Moderator: @YinPing never mind but there's more you can add like what did people do to bring attention to this case.
21 Jan 17, 11:16 AM
Wei Theng: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think?
--> I agreed with Lynette's father that it is due to racial reasons - their daughter was Aboriginal while the two men accused in her death are white.
21 Jan 17, 11:15 AM
Andrea Lai: 1.Racial discrimination because Lynette is an oboriginal.
21 Jan 17, 11:15 AM
yinping: @Joy, after i read 2nd question, yes i am totally agree with you
21 Jan 17, 11:14 AM
Joy_Moderator: @YinPing your answer for No.1 more suitable for No.2 question lol
21 Jan 17, 11:14 AM
Uncle Eddie: Q1-Ans: It was mainly and truly due to racial discrimination of the gretest kind! Without the great public outrage, the case would have been dropped and neatly forgotten.
21 Jan 17, 11:14 AM
Keng Nam: @Pastor Henry Ooi - still rife - with the BREXIT referendum, people (eastern europeans) have been fearful as there were racial attacks, slurs etc...so it seems discrimination based on differences
21 Jan 17, 11:14 AM
Joy_Moderator: 2. What had to be done and what did people do in order for the murderers to be brought to court and finally trialled?
21 Jan 17, 11:13 AM
yinping: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think?Ans : It is due to racial discrimination. The victim is aboriginal woman and the suspects are a white. For 5 years, despite the urgings of the coroner and police, prosecutors refused to try the men charged with her death. It was not until June, amid enormous pressure from an outraged public, that they at last agreed to bring the case to court.
21 Jan 17, 11:13 AM
Joy_Moderator: Yes @Keng Nam how is it on your part of the world? Is it as obvious as Aus
21 Jan 17, 11:13 AM
Wah Ying: A1: It is widely believed that because the victim is Aboriginal and two men accused for her death are white men. Lack of evidence is an excuse, because under public pressure and protest the prosecutors later brought the xase to court.
21 Jan 17, 11:12 AM
Joy_Moderator: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? - Lynette’s death was not brought to court and the murderers trialled for five years because Lynette was Aboriginal and the two men responsible for her death were white man.
- Lynette’s stepfather Gordon Davis says bluntly “If it was two Indigenous people who’d done it to a white girl,“they’d be in jail.”
- Some say it is because there’s been problems with evidence or that the victim was not “ideal” being a 33-year-old, poor mother who was an alcoholic, but in my opinion it is definitely because she was a native, an Aboriginal.
21 Jan 17, 11:12 AM
Joy_Moderator: @Nic your answer is for my other question hehe
21 Jan 17, 11:12 AM
Pastor Henry Ooi: @keng nam How's the discrimination situation over your side of the world?
21 Jan 17, 11:11 AM
Joy_Moderator: Very true Pastor Henry and Keng Nam
21 Jan 17, 11:11 AM
Joy_Moderator: @Keng Nam it was absolutely disgusting how she was abused and then for her case to be dismiss because she was a native. Australia is terrible in protecting its native people.
21 Jan 17, 11:10 AM
nicholas: Q1: Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? Ans: Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially due to racial discrimination. The victim is aboriginal woman and the suspects are a white.

It was not until June, amid enormous pressure from an outraged public, that they at last agreed to bring the case to court.
21 Jan 17, 11:10 AM
Keng Nam: @Joy - yes, even religious discrimination which is unacceptable and reflects closed mindedness of the prepetrators
21 Jan 17, 11:10 AM
Pastor Henry Ooi: Yes @Joy. Nothing and no one is spared in discirmination. Just look at the unjust ban on Dorje Shugden practice.
21 Jan 17, 11:10 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? Ans. This is hard to believe as her blood was everywhere, in the car and on the jeans of one of the men. It is because she was Aboriginal and the men are white. It is because of the race and the discrimination Aboriginals have to suffer in Australia even today.
21 Jan 17, 11:09 AM
June Kang: Q1 :Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? Ans: It was clearly a racial discrimination, Lynette’s was Aboriginal and the two men accused in her death are white.
21 Jan 17, 11:09 AM
Joy_Moderator: Agree @Pastor Henry, it is 2017 and it is still very strong. Not only racism, but all kinds of discrimination, even religious.
21 Jan 17, 11:09 AM

21 Jan 17, 11:08 AM
Pastor Henry Ooi: Racial discrimination is very prevalent today. Sad but it's there.
21 Jan 17, 11:07 AM
Joy_Moderator: Thank you Keng Nam! It is very sad indeed, because of who she is, an Aboriginal, they tried to dismiss her case!
21 Jan 17, 11:07 AM
Jenn_Yuen: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? Answer : Lynette's parents believed that it was because Lynette was Aboriginal and the two men accused in her death were white.
21 Jan 17, 11:07 AM
JP: Racial discrimination
21 Jan 17, 11:06 AM
Joy_Moderator: @JP so what do you think? What does that mean?
21 Jan 17, 11:06 AM
Keng Nam: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? Ans: Of course not. It was clearly a racial 'thing' as it seems there needs to be no motive in a manslaughter case and Lynette's death seems to be a manslaughter case, if inded, intent was never proven
21 Jan 17, 11:06 AM
Wah Ying: Good morning Rinpoche and all
21 Jan 17, 11:05 AM
Andrea Lai: Good morning to all
21 Jan 17, 11:05 AM
JP: 1. Why was Lynette’s murder not being brought to court initially? Some say it was because there’s problems with the evidences, what do you think? It was because the men accused are white and the victim was an aborigini. They didn't think the victim was an "ideal" victim.

Joy_Moderator: Dear All, Today's BLOG CHAT TOPIC: Racial Discrimination in Australia http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/racial-discrimination-in-australia.html We will start in 2minutes
21 Jan 17, 10:18 AM
Kahluen: Why is it that holding greed ,hatred and ignorance in our mindstreams can lead to downgrading of present form in our next incarnations?Negative mindfulness begets downgrading of faith as well as the growing of non-virtuous roots in our spiritual wealth of consciousness.In this case,we might be cultivating blessings but there is leaking of merits and blessings,being incapable even to retain the present form ,leading to more sufferings ahead.The importance of right conduct and mindfulness cannot be overemphasized.By complying to the ten command of ten virtuous roots of deeds,one can retain the present strong form with possiblility to upgrade to higher form in the next reincarnation.

20 Jan 17, 10:05 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 今晚由于是马来西亚彭亨州文冬的财王多杰雄登新护法殿的落成及开张日,许多师兄们都过去共襄盛举了,所以人数比较少。
20 Jan 17, 10:04 PM
Yan Woon: 我赞同。现在各个上师的弟子们都好幸福,反倒是弟子们不懂得惜福,不懂得珍惜佛法……
20 Jan 17, 10:03 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 对,yinping说的好。良善的设备真的非常重要。仁波切给弟子准备好一切修行条件,连所有教法都写好、拍好放在网络上方便大家。想想看仁波切小时候为了求法还要那么辛苦去赚钱和哀求父母的许可,我们已经是非常自由,非常容易了。
20 Jan 17, 10:01 PM
yinping: 问题八:请你列出你认为你本身所面对的修行障碍有哪一些?比起仁波切自小要面对的那些障碍和挑战,你觉得自己的情况如何?答:我本身所面对的修行障碍是理解能力比较差,还有就是不够积极上进。多谢仁波切的慈悲,我们现在有良善的设备让我们学习和修行,是非常幸运的
20 Jan 17, 10:01 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: Alice,你这样说就不对了。这种问题,不是今天被问到才去思考的,是时时要思考的 :)
20 Jan 17, 10:00 PM
Alice: 哈哈!今天的状态不是那么好,未能想到那么的仔细。
20 Jan 17, 09:59 PM
Yan Woon: 我本身面对的障碍可能是距离吧!我没有机会如此接近上师仁波切,也没办法常出席道场的活动,只能透过网络听闻上师的法教。但比起仁波切的,我的真的不算什么。
20 Jan 17, 09:58 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: @Alice你的回答未免敷衍了?
20 Jan 17, 09:58 PM
Alice: 问题八:请你列出你认为你本身所面对的修行障碍有哪一些?比起仁波切自小要面对的那些障碍和挑战,你觉得自己的情况如何?答:不够积极如仁波切。还有很大的空间必须努力的追上。
20 Jan 17, 09:57 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 我认为我本身所面对的修行障碍都偏向是自己给自己造成的障碍,比如怠惰和骄傲,这些东西影响我的修行进度,让我不轻易接受别人的意见,甚至有的时候是上师的意见。上师詹杜固仁波切在各种条件上都给了弟子很多方便和安排,我们有道场,甚至在道场中有工作和修行的机会、资源、人力和物力,我们什么都不缺,比起仁波切小时候的境遇,我们算是非常幸运了。

abby f Chinese Moderator: 根据达赖尊者的官方网站,1981年7月的那一次时轮金刚灌顶,是达赖尊者首次在西方国家传授的第一次哦: http://www.dalailama.com/teachings/kalachakra-initiations
20 Jan 17, 09:51 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 问题七:那一次的时轮金刚灌顶对仁波切有什么特别的象征意义? 答案:(一)1981 年7月,至尊嘉瓦仁波切授予了极具历史意义的第一次在西方国家的时轮金刚灌顶 (二)若仁波切能去那一次的灌顶,他就能亲自见到嘉瓦仁波切(达赖尊者) (三)仁波切真的真的很想得到这个灌顶,求到心咒的口传、加持、持修法。他真的想从嘉瓦仁波切(达赖尊者)那里求得这一切
20 Jan 17, 09:51 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: yinping的答案也正确!
20 Jan 17, 09:50 PM
yinping: 问题七:那一次的时轮金刚灌顶本身,以及对仁波切有什么特别的象征意义?答:1981 年7月,至尊嘉瓦仁波切授予了极具历史意义的第一次时轮金刚灌顶和解说,地点就在在威斯康辛州的麦迪逊市。当时仁波切15岁,仁波切真的很想得到这个灌顶,求到心咒的口传、加持、持修法,想从嘉瓦仁波切那里求得这一切,做这个法门的禅修。
20 Jan 17, 09:50 PM

20 Jan 17, 09:49 PM

abby f Chinese Moderator: 问题六:为了攒够前去威斯康辛州的麦迪逊市接受来自嘉瓦仁波切(达赖尊者)亲自传授的时轮金刚灌顶,仁波切趁着暑假的空档工作。请问当时仁波切做了什么工作,工作中有什么样的挑战? 答案:为了攒够前去威斯康辛州的麦迪逊市接受来自嘉瓦仁波切(达赖尊者)亲自传授的时轮金刚灌顶,仁波切趁着暑假的空档工作。当时仁波切到一家名为『Happy Family』的中餐馆工作,仁波切负责打杂和兼职服务员的工作——洗盘碗和杯子、清理餐桌、偶尔会招待顾客。 所面对的挑战包括仁波切必须从家里骑着脚踏车,一路骑到Happy Family中餐馆去。仁波切必须用上20-25分钟的时间才能抵达,因为距离相当远。
20 Jan 17, 09:44 PM
yinping: 哈哈
20 Jan 17, 09:44 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 你们三个人的答案综合起来,就正确、完整了 哈哈 :D

20 Jan 17, 09:44 PM
Alice: 1. 在Happy Family餐馆负责清洗盘碗和杯子 2. 有一次仁波切还必须到后方清洗碗碟,因为清洗碗碟的员工当天没来上班,所以仁波切就得清洗碗碟;还有一次是其中一位兄弟没来上班,因此仁波切也必须招待顾客。

20 Jan 17, 09:39 PM
abby f Chinese Moderator: 问题五:根据文章内容,仁波切的养父母因为什么而不允许仁波切学习佛法?他们为了阻止仁波切学习佛法会做什么事?会如何刁难仁波切? 答案:因为他们害怕仁波切会出家为僧,导致他们失去一个儿子。根据卡尔梅克人的传统,如果你拥有几名儿子,你可以送一个孩子到寺院去。但如果你只有一个儿子,那么这名男孩就不应该出家。他应该留在家里,照顾父母、继承父姓、家系等。 为了阻止仁波切学习佛法,(一)他们会用尽各种方法来阻止仁波切到佛寺去,比如说“你被禁足了,三个月内不许到寺院去!” 当他们再次允许仁波切到佛寺去却发现仁波切开始变得“投入”之后,他们就会再度阻止。 (二)有时候,他们会到寺院去,看看仁波切在做些什么,让仁波切相当难堪。 (三)有时他们会致电仁波切的上师,责骂他,说他不应该给仁波切洗脑,不该教仁波切各种东西,而应该让仁波切呆在家里。

19 Jan 17, 11:04 PM
Choong_Moderator: It is of no coincidence that Dorje Shugden is practised in Amarbayasgalant Monastery today.
19 Jan 17, 11:03 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jacinta, various sources, got to piece it together
19 Jan 17, 11:03 PM
Choong_Moderator: Video of Dorje Shugden in Amarbayasgalant Monastery: https://youtu.be/Vs8BTURbnoQ
19 Jan 17, 11:02 PM
Elaine: Wow, 3,860 kilograms of silver in today's price would be $2,078,706.52. Lol
19 Jan 17, 11:02 PM
Jacinta Goh: Moderator, where was your information came from? Any link?
19 Jan 17, 11:01 PM
Choong_Moderator: Jaya or Zaya Pandita was the chief disciple of Zanabazar.
19 Jan 17, 11:00 PM
Choong_Moderator: That's right. And Zanabazar and his entourage was in Drepung Monastery during the year Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was killed and the year after when he went back to Mongolia.
19 Jan 17, 10:59 PM
Jacinta Goh: Jetsundamba Khutuktu the first was Zanabazar. He was a spiritual mentor to the Emperor and hence, it was built as a final resting place for the mentor.
19 Jan 17, 10:57 PM
Elaine: Amarbayasgalant Monastery was built for Zanabazar who was a spiritual mentor to Kangxi.
19 Jan 17, 10:57 PM
Jacinta Goh: A11: Amarbayasgalant Monastery. It was built for one of His teachers, Jetsundamba Khutuktu.
19 Jan 17, 10:55 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q11. Which monastery in Northern Mongolia did Emperor Kangxi sponsor and instruct to be built in his will? For whom was it built for?
19 Jan 17, 10:55 PM
Choong_Moderator: But certain quarters still do not want to accept today's reality
19 Jan 17, 10:55 PM
Elaine: dharma brother I mean
19 Jan 17, 10:54 PM
Elaine: Yes remembering also that the 5th Dalai Lama was a close dharma of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and Dorje Shugden arose from the latter.
19 Jan 17, 10:53 PM
Choong_Moderator: And today's China is returning to also be a huge patron of the Gelugpa lineage but...
19 Jan 17, 10:52 PM
Choong_Moderator: So a Chinese Emperor was a huge patron of the Dalai Lama and the Gelugpas.
19 Jan 17, 10:51 PM
Elaine: It is one of the most important Gelugpa monasteries and was also a monastery that practices Dorje Shugden,
19 Jan 17, 10:51 PM
Choong_Moderator: Many rare Buddhist scriptures written on palm leaves and also scriptures that were used by the great Dalai Lamas and Panchen Lamas of the past are still preserved in Sumtseling.
19 Jan 17, 10:50 PM
Jacinta Goh: A10: Ganden Sumsetling
19 Jan 17, 10:50 PM
graceleong: Q10. Which monastery built by the 5th Dalai Lama, was sponsored by Emperor Kangxi? A; Ganden Sumtseling in Yunnan, China
19 Jan 17, 10:50 PM

19 Jan 17, 10:49 PM

19 Jan 17, 10:45 PM
Lum Kok Luen: sorry, Jan 2014
19 Jan 17, 10:45 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Elaine -- like what Guru shared in Gompa Hall on Jan 23rd 2015, Setrap and DS are brothers.
19 Jan 17, 10:45 PM
graceleong: Yup ! They are "brothers" :)
19 Jan 17, 10:45 PM
Elaine: Dorje Shuden and Setrap are in the same mandala. They work hand in hand.
19 Jan 17, 10:45 PM
Choong_Moderator: Nice and wow.
19 Jan 17, 10:44 PM
Lum Kok Luen: I had so much obstacles in my career and financial just two and half years ago. With Guru's teaching and purifying karma, Setrap really guided me all the way. He also helped my entire family.
19 Jan 17, 10:43 PM
shelly tai: Setrap is very effective and fast if u need his help.
19 Jan 17, 10:43 PM
Choong_Moderator: Tell us, tell us...
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Jacinta ----- I can vouch for it 101% !!!
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Jacinta Goh: @Lum... wow
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
graceleong: Definitely Lum.
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Elaine ---- LOL
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Choong_Moderator: For sure... :)
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Prior to our Guru introducing DS to Kechara, I was propitiating Setrap. He helped me in so many ways. And till today, I can sense that Setrap is still with us if we propitiate him
19 Jan 17, 10:42 PM
Jacinta Goh: I see. Still being practiced. thanks Grace
19 Jan 17, 10:41 PM
Elaine: LOL, Then he must be saying "I'll be back" before he leaves.
19 Jan 17, 10:41 PM
Choong_Moderator: :)
19 Jan 17, 10:41 PM
Jacinta Goh: hahaha... good one. Will remember this.
19 Jan 17, 10:40 PM
graceleong: Lord Setrap is still the Protector of Gaden Shartse till today. HE is still very effective but for you and I we have affinity with Tsem Rinpoche and hence affinity with Dorje Shugden .
19 Jan 17, 10:40 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jacinta, yes, what is suitable for us people. Like long ago there was Robin Hood, Zorro and the Lone Ranger. Now we need Transformers.
19 Jan 17, 10:38 PM
Jacinta Goh: They arose due to the karmic affinity with the people at that particular time, am I right? So, can this render Lord Setrap as not being effective anymore? (sorry, have some confusion here)
19 Jan 17, 10:38 PM
Choong_Moderator: Hence fundamentally, Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha mind. That's why there can be many emanations at the same time.
19 Jan 17, 10:36 PM
graceleong: Its the same as the more traditional and well known Buddhas like Manjushri or Kuan Yin. For example Lama Tsongkhapa, Dorje Shugden, Yamantaka, Mahakala etc were all in essence Manjushri .
19 Jan 17, 10:36 PM
Choong_Moderator: And Dorje Shugden is also know to be an avatar of Chenrezig and Vajrapani too
19 Jan 17, 10:33 PM
Choong_Moderator: Dorje Shugden is Manjushri's avatar who arose during the time of the 5th Dalai Lama
19 Jan 17, 10:33 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Elaine - I believe DS manifested in so many places simultaneously. It's just that maybe some manifestations were not recorded......
19 Jan 17, 10:32 PM
Jacinta Goh: Yes, Moderator and being confined to a rather strict/ limited thinking
19 Jan 17, 10:32 PM
Elaine: yar, terminology...
19 Jan 17, 10:32 PM
Choong_Moderator: But who is Dorje Shugden?
19 Jan 17, 10:32 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Elaine, you mean arose...
19 Jan 17, 10:31 PM
Elaine: If not mistaken, Dorje Shugden manifested during HH 5th Dalai Lama's time whereas Emperor was during 7th Dalai Lama's time.
19 Jan 17, 10:31 PM
Jacinta Goh: Also, most important thing is to have someone capable to carry the lineage and transmit the teachings from one generation to another. Imagine, can anyone us of us do that? I doubt so
19 Jan 17, 10:31 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Jacinta, that's because we are bound by the concept of time.
19 Jan 17, 10:29 PM
Jacinta Goh: But this question does create confusion in many, like me. :biggrin:
19 Jan 17, 10:29 PM
Elaine: That must be to benefit many, any way they see fit, they manifest.
19 Jan 17, 10:28 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Elaine, avatar
19 Jan 17, 10:27 PM
Jacinta Goh: For example, even Master Milarepa during His lifetime, he had manifested in different places and these was confirmed by many people in that time. Just like DS also 4 other manisfestations.
19 Jan 17, 10:26 PM
Elaine: No I mean Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen
19 Jan 17, 10:26 PM
Jacinta Goh: As I know, when we reach certain stage, we can manifest in different time.@Elaine
19 Jan 17, 10:25 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Elaine..... this is logical
19 Jan 17, 10:25 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Elaine, you mean Emperor Kangxi is also a manifestation of Dorje Shugden
19 Jan 17, 10:25 PM
Elaine: Is that fair to say?
19 Jan 17, 10:25 PM
Elaine: He is Manjushri, which means he can manifest in many ways at the same time as Buddhas can. .....
19 Jan 17, 10:24 PM
Elaine: One question to anyone. If Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen manifested as Dorje Shugden, how does he get reborn as Emperor Kangxi at the same time?
19 Jan 17, 10:24 PM
Choong_Moderator: Lobsang Tamdin is (also) remembered for certain miracles he performed in his lifetime, including the spontaneous manifestation of two stupas inscribed with mystical letters.
19 Jan 17, 10:23 PM
Choong_Moderator: @Lum, Mongolian name I believe
19 Jan 17, 10:22 PM
shelly tai: Q4: Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen made a prophecy which Lobbing Tamdin took to mean that as soon as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen pass away the emperor of China would be born.
19 Jan 17, 10:22 PM
Lum Kok Luen: Is Lobsang Tamdin a Mongolian name or an ordained name?
19 Jan 17, 10:21 PM
Choong_Moderator: BTW Lobsang Tamdin is Mongolian
19 Jan 17, 10:21 PM
graceleong: Q4. What was the vision that Lobsang Tamdin had? A:- In the vision, Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen made a prophecy which Lobsang Tamdin took to mean that as soon as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen passed away, the Emperor of China would be born.
19 Jan 17, 10:21 PM
Choong_Moderator: Thank you @Graceleong.
19 Jan 17, 10:21 PM
Jacinta Goh: A4: It was later confirmed by an entry in Sumpa Khenpo’s Chronology of Tibet for the Wood Sheep year (1655-1656)
19 Jan 17, 10:21 PM
Lum Kok Luen: A4: Lobsang Tamdin had a vision that Emperor Kangxi is a reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaeltsen, who will be manifested as an Emperor of China.
19 Jan 17, 10:20 PM
Elaine: In the vision, Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen told him that after Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had passed away, and emperor of China would be born. He took it to mean Emperor Kangxi.
19 Jan 17, 10:20 PM
graceleong: Q3. Who was the first to determine Emperor Kangxi's connection with Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen? How? A:- It was Lobsang Tamdin who first determined Kangxi’s connection with Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and Manjushri. He wrote in his bebum about a vision he had of Jamgon Sakya Pandita, Lama Tsongkhapa and Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen.
19 Jan 17, 10:19 PM
Choong_Moderator: Q4. What was the vision that Lobsang Tamdin had?

19 Jan 17, 10:19 PM
Jacinta Goh: A3: It was Lobsang Tamdin. He had a vision of Jamgon Sakya Pandita, Lama Tsongkhapa and Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen and He wrote in His Bebum.
19 Jan 17, 10:18 PM
Lum Kok Luen: A3: Lobsang Tamdin
19 Jan 17, 10:18 PM
shelly tai: Q3: Lobsang Tamdin
19 Jan 17, 10:18 PM
graceleong: Q2. Tell me what are some of the reasons behind Emperor Kangxi's success in ruling China? A : (1) After years of war and chaos, Kangxi’s reign brought long-term stability and wealth throughout China because he was good at uniting the Court to minimize plotting and unrest.
