Ven. Choden Rinpoche of Sera Je Monastery, one of the highest of the Gelug lamas, was virtually unknown outside Tibet until 1985. He neither escaped his country after 1959 nor was imprisoned; instead, he lived in a house in Lhasa, never leaving his small, dark, empty room for nineteen years, even to go to the toilet, and never cutting his hair and beard.

“He spent all his time on that bed, meditating,” says Rinpoche’s attendant, Sera Je monk Ven. Tseten Gelek.

“They had to change the be... read more

Moments like dew amongst the rays of the dawn sun, swiftly pass on the wings of time,
here there are no troubles, no drama and no woes, only the pervasive poise of the serene.
However, the moments drop away into the bright luminious of all that is, has or will be,
(C), 2007, Tashi Pema Dorje

At this excellent place whirled with auspiciousness,
Which attracts continuously the collection of fortune and the blessing of the prosperity,
Which grants what is desired with delightful dance,
In which prosperity appears just as magnet attracts metals.

Please bestow all fame, wealth, fortune and blessing (luck)
Of the Assembly of Brahma, Mahadev, Indra,
The famous god (Mukyu) and the Universal Monarch,
Who are the highest of the samsara.

Please bestow a... read more

I am speechless in the light of Buddhas embrace
Hold me now in the dark night of samsara, that I may cherish others for all of my days
Which like dew on the morning grass, show's it''s conditioned nature to be fading, fading,
As a rainbow in the gentle breeze.

If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.
–His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Chandrakirti explained three types of compassion: compassion aimed at suffering, aimed at phenomena, and unaimed. With the first, we look at animate beings in light of their suffering and develop the wish for them to be free from both that suffering and its causes. One source of their suffering is their unawareness that they even have any problems, let alone their not knowing the causes of their problems. For example, our friend becomes upset at the slightest thing that goes wrong and sees th... read more

September 8th, 2006 Geshe Lama Konchog studied in Sera Monastery in Tibet from the age of 7 to 32 (1934-1959). Geshe-la had attended initiations and teachings by Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and Pari Rinpoche. He also completed many retreats like RINCHUG GYATSA and other short retreats of the deities he had initiation, staying in the labrangs of these Great Lamas. He completed his Geshe studies and was about to take his final exams in 1959, but had to escape Tibet. He left with only th... read more

Rinpoche said please practice as much as you can, life is not long, the nature of this life is impermanent and death can happen at anytime. This is the foundation of Buddha’s teachings, and this was the last advice Buddha gave, before showing the aspect of passing away.

Please make your life most meaningful with the thought of bodhicitta.
Rinpoche sends you his love and prayers.

A Prayer dedicated to my Beloved Masters
As I sit on my meditation cushion,
My heart is filled with gratitude to you,
My precious masters,
For showing the intrinsic nature of mind,
Beyond grasping.
My eyes are filled with tears of devotion to you,
The jewel of my heart.
When I think of the inexhaustible ocean of your wisdom,
Your kindness and unfathomable qualities,
I truly believe that you are the essence of all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Please remain inseparable from the lotu... read more

Of logicians & reason
Why is the sphere of the egocentric mind so pervasive in modern society?

We pride ourselves on the notion of being civilised and evolved, so much so that we feel it is necessary to offer advice to others when all the while our advice is rendered useless in the light and dark of personal interest.

How many of us do away with the need to criticise others [those possessing mental continua and/or inanimate objects], only to focus our keen sense of cynicism upon our... read more

When we find the reference of yab and yum (masculine/feminine consort or father/mother consort) applied to deities, we shouldn't make the obvious mistake of assuming that this has to do with male/female in the physical sense. The deities are not male and female beings, but masculine and feminine energies. The bipolar imagery of the masculine and feminine illustrates the primordial union of appearance (or form) and emptiness. One of the descriptions of this imagery is that the masculine aspect... read more

Having compassion is like trading places with another person.

When you put yourself in the other person's place, then you'll naturally feel what is needed of you. That's exactly what compassion is!
You can't have compassion without feeling the pain of others.

If you are not able to sense others' pain then you are not able to cultivate compassion. It's always like this, not only for compassion, but also for acceptance, forgiveness, everything. The cultivation of these all be... read more
