A humorous take on how people greet their Lamas
« on: October 06, 2012, 04:40:05 am »
"Welcome Rinpoche, WELCOME!!!" HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!


I just watched this YouTube video and I think it just so funny. I am sure many people who manage Buddhist centers around the world can relate to the scenarios that Rinpoche is talking about. Tsem Rinpoche would often use humor as a means to deliver the teachings. Do watch this video and have a jolly good time enjoying Rinpoche's humor and teaching.

I love this guy, he makes me laugh every video.  :teehee:

His teachings are very enlightening. :jinsyx:
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha

In the Supreme Awakened One, his Truth, and the Spiritual Community, I seek refuge until becoming enlightened. By the merit from practicing giving and other perfections, may I attain full awakening for the benefit of all.

I love Tsem Rinpoche's YouTube teachings too. I love to put it on while I am on the computer while I surf and Facebook. I love the fact that this Rinpoche speaks like an American, with very easy visual and cultural references and is exceptionally funny. Although, a lot of the humor revolves around his students in his center and their peculiarities. However, at the end of the teachings amidst tears of laughter, one would find that the hours have gone by so quickly and one have learnt quite a lot. That's just how Tsem Rinpoche teaches and I totally enamored to his style.

Here's a funny teaching of why everyone should have a Lama Tsongkhapa statue:-

FUNNIEST Dharma video!

Yes, he is amusing.
But I can't help but think about those people in his audience who are the ones he is talking about.  THEY must be feeling simply awful.
This is not quite the level of mindfulness I would want to see in a teacher.
His humor lacks the gentle compassion and the self-deprecating humor that I am used to seeing in the older, more-experienced Tibetan lamas. Perhaps he will mellow out with time.
