When H.E. Tsem Rinpoche passed into parinirvana on September 4th, 2019, the world lost a towering beacon of goodness and hope. To create the necessary causes and conditions for His swift return back among us, there are many things that we, as disciples, must do.

In September 2023, we completed the Tsem Rinpoche Relic Temple and Stupa. However, much more remains to be done. We must now continue generating tremendous merits in order to be able to find, recognise and enthrone Rinpoche's new incarnation. These include:

  • Regular pujas advised by Rinpoche (prior to his parinirvana), Dorje Shugden and other high lamas. These are conducted on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.
  • Daily offerings of light, incense ('sang'), food and flowers.
  • Annual observance of Rinpoche's parinirvana anniversary.
  • Expenses for high lamas and monks who will conduct the prayer ceremonies.
  • Sponsorship of ceremonies and teachings in the monasteries.
  • Construction of facilities for Rinpoche's new incarnation.
  • Other expenses related to the search, recognition and enthronement of Rinpoche's new incarnation.
We urge you to share our heartfelt wish for Rinpoche's swift return, and request for your kind and generous contributions. Together, let's create the causes for our lama to return to us swiftly. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Making Offerings to the Guru

A guru is our spiritual teacher, the one who shows us how to improve ourselves so that we can become better people, kinder to the people around us, and progress on the spiritual path. The guru is an integral part of our spiritual journey because all spiritual attainments are the result of our guru’s blessings.

Merits are another integral part of the spiritual journey. Without merits, we will lack conducive conditions to learn and practise the Dharma. There are many methods of generating merits — one of the best ways of doing so is by making offerings to your guru, or to high lamas such as His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.

“Giving to your Guru is the same as making continual offerings to all the Buddhas. From such giving, much merit is gathered. From such collection comes the supreme powerful attainment of Buddhahood.” – Ashvaghosha, 50 Verses of Guru Devotion

The practice of making offerings to the guru is a core Buddhist practice, particularly in Tibetan Buddhism. It is the guru who teaches us the Dharma in ways that are relatable to our everyday experience. They teach us according to our level and means, without which Dharma practice is simply dry knowledge. Therefore, when we make sincere offerings to the guru, the merit we create to actualise the teachings in our lives is incredibly transformative.

Although Tsem Rinpoche has passed into parinirvana, it is an excellent practice to continue making offerings to Rinpoche's holy relics just as we did when Rinpoche was still physically with us. This not only keeps our spiritual connection with this great being strong, but also generates vast merits for Rinpoche's swift return.

About Tsem Rinpoche

His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche was a world-renowned Buddhist teacher, the 25th incarnation from a long line of Indian, Nepali and Tibetan Buddhist masters dating back to over 2,500 years ago. He was the founder of the Kechara Buddhist Organisation headquartered in Malaysia, a prolific author of commentaries, discourses and books on Buddhism, and a beloved spiritual guide to many disciples around the world.

When Rinpoche passed into parinirvana on September 4th, 2019, the world lost a towering beacon of goodness and hope. He dedicated his entire life to the practice and proliferation of Buddhism especially through the digital world, and his teachings have touched the hearts and changed the lives of thousands of people around the globe.

Rinpoche's life is an inspiring example of one who lived only to benefit others; one who never gave up the Dharma despite the difficulties that he faced. Skilfully sharing spiritual wisdom with all and never turning his compassion away from anyone in need, Rinpoche's caring, patient, skilful, wise, compassionate, kind and generous qualities were apparent to anyone near or far.
