Gen Losang Wangji’s message to Tsem Rinpoche’s students

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

Dear Rinpoche, Bryan and I have just finished a series of audiences in the monastery. We gave medicines and an Angpow (money offering) to Gen Losang Wangji, an elderly monk who came from Tibet. He was very happy to know the offerings are from Rinpoche, and to hear about our Kechara World Peace Center (KWPC). He advises all of Rinpoche students to know how fortunate we are to have this opportunity to study with a great lama like Rinpoche. And to clarify any Dharma questions we have while we have the chance. And the road to KWPC will not be easy in the beginning so the students should persevere and not give up. Liaison Beng Kooi

Rinpoche saved Fat Monk’s mother!

This is Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s long-time student Kok Thai or more fondly known as Fat Monk.

Around February last year, Fat Monk’s mother was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in the liver, when the doctor detected it, it was already 2-inch (5cm) in size. The doctor could not operated on the tumour because it grew in the middle of the liver, and there was hardening of the liver, and the dotor said Fat Monk’s mother had only 3 months to live.

Fat Monk was very worried and consulted Tsem Rinpoche, Rinpoche asked the mother to do at least one mala of Om Mani Padme Hung a day, and asked Fat Monk to work even harder in Dharma work to dedicate the merits to his mother. Rinpoche also asked Fat Monk to do a series of pujas for her.

After a few last attempts of tumour ablation and chemo-therapy which the doctors could not guarantee success, miraculously the tumour was reduced over the months, and in May 2011, the doctors pronounced that the tumour cancer cell is not active anymore, and even the doctors were pleasantly surprised by this result, Fat Monk’s mother is completely healed from being given just 3 months to live!

The pictures here show Tsem Rinpoche with Fat Monk and his wife Wan, who is also a Kechara liaison, Fat Monk’s mother in hospital, and the last photo is Fat Monk and Wan’s whole family taken last wek at Kechara House after having an audience with Tsem Rinpoche. The family couldn’t thank Rinpoche enough for saving the mother’s life!


这是詹杜固仁波切的多年弟子国泰,每个人都叫他Fat Monk(胖僧),那是仁波切给他的绰号。在去年春节期间,Fat Monk的妈妈被诊断出肝长了癌性肿瘤,当医生发现时,肿瘤已经有2寸(5cm)大。由于肿瘤长在肝中间,而且她又有肝硬化,所以医生不能开刀切除肿瘤。当时医生还说她只有3个月的寿命!

Fat Monk很是担心,于是便向詹杜固仁波切求救。仁波切吩咐Fat Monk的妈妈每天做至少一串的 Om Mani Padme Hung 咒语,并劝告Fat Monk 更努力的做佛法事业,以便回向功德给他的妈妈。仁波切还指示Fat Monk为妈妈做一系列的法会。

接下来的几个月,医生为Fat Monk的妈妈进行了最后的治疗尝试,包括射频消融治疗和化疗,医生也没抱太大的希望,但在接下来的几个月,肿瘤却奇迹般的缩小。在2011 年的5月,医生宣布癌细胞已经不再活跃了,这件事连医生们也觉得不可思议,因为当初病人被诊断只剩下3个月的寿命!

照片里的是仁波切,Fat Monk和他的太太Wan,Wan也是詹杜固仁波切的协调助理之一。接着的照片是Fat Monk和妈妈在医院里,还有Fat Monk和Wan全家人和妈妈在上星期会见仁波切时摄的全家福。Fat Monk一家人对仁波切的救命之恩感激不尽!

Mama, I can speak now! 妈妈我能说话了!

by on Jun.13, 2011, under Tsem Tulku Rinpoche


From left to right: Jie, the boys’ cousin Jia Yi, GG their mother and her older son Hui

For the entirety of his nine years of life, Jie had never once spoken or expressed himself verbally, and no one knew why. Medical test upon test had come up negative, showing there was nothing physiologically wrong with the child.

With no answers from the doctors, all his parents could do was hope that he might one day be able to speak on his own. However, his mother GG Wan and father Chef Au knew that time was running out for their little boy. Enrolled in a regular school, they had begun to arrange Jie’s transfer into a special needs school when they heard that His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche was giving a baby baptismal.

With deep faith, GG and Chef Au submitted all three of their children’s names for the baptism – together with Jie, they submitted the names of their two older children, a 13-year old daughter and 11-year old son who have no problems with their speech, or with their studies. GG and Chef Au, who is the Head Chef of Kechara Oasis, simply intended for their children to attend the baptism as a blessing. They never knew that the event on Wesak Day would bring so many great changes for them.

The day after the baptism ceremony, GG recalled that she tried to guide Jie to recite Manjushri’s manta OM AH RA PATSA NA DHI. Jie however, was unable to memorise or recite the whole mantra.

“That’s why it came as a surprise for me when he recited it. It happened while I was driving. Jie, who was sitting in the back seat, suddenly said, “Mama, OM AH RA PATSA NA DHI!””

“It happened two days after I tried teaching him. I was driving so I said to him, “Good boy!”” said GG, who is still very excited when recalling her son’s miraculous improvement after the blessing ceremony.

“I have had more surprises after that. Once, Jie even uttered, “Mama, you crazy ah, driving dangerously!””, GG explaining that Jie said this when she tried to avoid a car in front of her which made an emergency stop.

Instead of being angry at Jie for scolding her, instead GG was very happy that her son could express his feelings precisely and with ease.

Since the baptism ceremony and his first recitation of Manjushri’s mantra, Jie has shown significant improvement. GG believes that these changes are due to the power of the Three Jewels, and that his improvements are only just the beginning.

GG and her husband suspected Jie of having speech problems when he was four years old, and no one could tell them what was wrong, except to say that he might have learning difficulties. The only sentence Jie came anywhere near to enunciating was, “Mama, I want to play computer games.” For the most part, he was incoherent, uttering incomplete sentences and noises, or relying on hand gestures to communicate – for example, to indicate his hunger, he would place his palm on his stomach.

Thus the change comes as an immense relief and joy to the proud parents who, after many years of living without any concrete hope that their son would one day speak, can now hear their son express himself perfectly…and for a parent, that is their greatest relief, to know that their son will be okay when they are gone.
