Rinpoche – Behind the Scenes  活佛背后的故事

Sentenced to 72 years in jail, came out in 2 months…

This is a true story that happened to me…

I was born in a farmer’s family in a village in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia.

My family worked as rubber tappers in a rubber estate.

After Form 5 graduation (18 years old) I worked in a garment factory and then I also went to work abroad…my life was quite stable and smooth, but around 1995, when I was 29-year-old,my life became harder and harder…

I did business but always failed…

I got to know of Tsem Rinpoche when my brother became a monk in Thailand.

One day my brother called me saying that if I want to become rich, please come to Thailand to pray to this guru Tsem Rinpoche…(editor’s note: this motivation was not exactly right but this is how it was…and at that time Tsem Rinpoche was doing a retreat in Wat Tham Khao Rup Chang in Thailand)

In 1999, my life became worse…I went to Thailand with my friend because he needed to recruit Thailand workers, before I left for Thailand, I seek advice from Tsem Rinpoche, Rinpoche advised me to contribute $100 to make offering because I had “little people” (a local slang meaning bad people who will harm us), but I did not do it because I did not have money…

When I went to Thailand, I got into trouble because I did not have license to recruit the workers, it became a crime of “human trafficking”, so I was caught by the Thailand police.

On Dec 28 1999, I went to jail.

My brother who was a monk in Thailand then came to help me, he helped me to seek advice from Tsem Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche through his divination asked me to pray to Palden Lhamo while I was in prison, and I was released after 2 months, my initial sentence was 72 years in jail, yes, 72 years, and I was released just after 2 months, with the help of Tsem Rinpoche…

After I was released from prison, I still faced financial problem, even $10 of milk I also could not afford to pay.

That time I needed a job badly….Tsem Rinpoche advised me to recite 100,000 times of Vajrapani mantra, and he said I will get a job that I wished after that…and I really found a job as a USA garment buyer’s Q.C. personnel, even with no experience at all, it is really a MIRACLE for me to get this job.

Now my life becomes better, thanks to Tsem Rinpoche….
