It is me in hollywood in 80s

Ini Aku Di Hollywood Pada Tahun 80-an

This is a picture of me taken in the 80′s in Hollywood, California where I lived. I don’t even remember who took the photo now.

My step-parents didn’t allow me to do Dharma or get involved with the centre. I ran away like three times and on the third time I was successful. My step-parents didn’t try to get me back anymore. I left New Jersey at 16 and hitchiked across the United States on my own to California. I had like US$50 and bought cheap apples to eat on the way and slept outside. It was really cold at night. I wanted to go to Hawaii, but didn’t have money in California so just stayed in Hollywood, worked and lived in the dharma centre called Thubten Dhargye Ling or TDL. It was headed by a great master named Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. I loved him very much. He passed away recently. That is where I met Kyabje Zong Rinpoche who changed my whole life. He acknowledged I am a Tulku. Continue reading…

Diana

Diana 1

This is Diana in front of the new Tv I presented her last week. Shin was very helpful to find different models on line and give Diana the facts as to which Tv would be good. Many times I want to get some quick information or sending something to Diana, Shin’s on the phone with her. Thanks Shin for helping Diana, a Lady with a big heart. Shin, you’re a lady with a big heart too.

Diana is my long time dharma sister from the USA. She lives in Ohio now. But when we met, she lived in Los Angeles. We met back in the mid 80′s there. We met just before the Glorious Kyabje Zong Rinpoche ( a living Heruka Buddha in the flesh) arrived in Thubten Dhargye Ling Dharma Centre (TDL) started by Ven Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen.

Serving

melayani

 

Some of us serve our selfish endeavours, some of us serve others and some of us don’t serve at all. Whatever the case is at this point, the real enemy is the mind that wishes happiness for itself and not anyone else. When people, environment, circumstances and facilities are used strictly directly and indirectly for our own ends, then THAT is the real cause to all unhappiness that arises.

I bow down to the Lord of Ferocious Wisdom,
Who shows a horrific form mirroring our ego and it’s graspings,
stamping on the very causes of our sufferings and it’s instincts
under your 16 sacred feet.
Your 9 faces and 34 arms are but representations
of your skilfull means to liberate, nurture and conquer
all that we percieve as pleasure when in actuality
being deluded, they are the very causes of our personal Samsara.
Knowing this, I hold my three sets of vows, Tantric commitments, Bodhicitta,
and Guru Devotion as supreme and see your sacred form in all that appears to me.
Lord of Wisdom in whom incredible abilities are inherent in Your practice,
to avert and counter samsara during the degenerate period,
I humbly bow down to you, Great Yamantaka!

With You

Dengan Dirimu

Positive relationships sometimes can be wonderful. But you have to remember you are having a relationship with that person.

That person is the real object of your positive relationship. You don’t use that person to further a unhealthy relationship with yourself.

Making offerings to higher beings is to collect merits. Why collect merits? What type of merits? How does collecting merits benefit us? All these we need to know. Continue reading…

Happy when i robbed ?

Berbahagia saat aku dirampok

Years ago, I was on a train from Delhi to South India (Gaden) and it was a 2 night and 3 day journey. I was accompanying Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. We all went to sleep..in the middle of the night we stopped at some station, someone stuck their hands in the window (my window was broken and wouldn’t close) and stole my monk bag with my prayer book/ Buddha pictures, and 600 rupees. That was all the money I had and it was suppose to last around a month. I was distressed. From the commotion, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche woke and I told him what occurred. He couldn’t stop laughing and laughing and laughing AT ME. I was irritated but didn’t dare show it…after he wiped his tears away from laughing so long and loud at me, while I am frustrated about my bag…he got serious and said, now meditate and pray and hope the contents of your bag will benefit the person who took it.
