100% Determination to escape samsara.

I have a lame mala question:

I recieved a red mala from Rinpoche as a gift. Do you know if this particular mala has any definitive qualities that are specific to this mala. I think that the mala is either red coral or something similar I am not sure.

Maybe, possibly, but I can wear robes without being a celibate monk. I'm a yogi triple vow holder already.

I have never heard of such a thing. Can you tell me where in the Vinaya it says this?

Spiritnoname,  are you being ordained?

I rejoice in your fortune.

I believe there is always ways to help others, however sometimes it is hard to prioritize what what be most helpful for others and what brings ultimate benefit. We could stand at the post office and open the door for every dear old lady that walks up all day long, but there are many more helpful ways to bring others the happiness that we are all looking for.

Anything done in order to bring your own mental continuum closer to Enlightenment is a gift of assistance to others as well...but we all know that.

I always liked what Master Shantideva said in relation to the ability of others to truly practice benefiting others. He said, "Start with vegetables".

Thank you all.
I wish that I had more time to involve myself in this forum. Things here have been very busy. My flight to India is in less than 2 weeks and I have a bunch of details that I am still working on.
 I hope to visit you all in Malaysia when I am finished with my project in India.
Everything about Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara inspires me so much. I would love to learn more of your activities.

Very Nice! This video shows how easy it can be for anyone to do this practice.
Mice, crickets, worms and many other creatures can be purchased from pet shops and liberated in just the same way.

Hello everyone!

I am new to this forum, but I really look forward to getting to know you all.

How auspicious for my first post to be in this thread....my favorite topic!

Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this precious practice with the world.
