Tsem Rinpoche’s Giving – A Roof For Those Without A Shelter

Nov 23, 2012 | Views: 486

The top few pictures shows the makeshift shed which the caretaker of Kechara Forest Retreat Azai and his wife were staying in. When Tsem Rinpoche saw that, Rinpoche decided to build him a proper “home” to stay in. So for weeks, Rinpoche personally planned and supervised under sun and rain until the completion of Azai’s new “home, complete with living room, bedroom, shower and toilet, kitchen, dog area etc.

Azai and his wife are very touched by Rinpoche’s kindness and care, they said ‘ribuan terima kasih’ meaning “thousands of thanks”.

One of the 6 Paramitas is giving, and one form of giving is the giving of fearlessness. In this case Rinpoche gives the caretaker and his wife the fearlessness from sun, rain, the fear of their roof being blown away by thunderstorms (it happened last month), and the fear of wild animals, like mosquitoes, snakes and wild animals.

Azai’s original home – he built it himself with wood, boards, canvas

This was how Azai and his wife had meals everyday

    What does everyone expect from a Lama? Dharma teachings, right? With our Rinpoche, you receive more – love, jokes, care — and here, he is personally hands-on with the construction of Azai’s new home.
