I am currently staying at the Kechara Forest Retreat in Malaysia and while enjoying the relaxing surroundings I came across this amazing collection of buddhist quotes by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche which he has asked me to share with the world.
Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has had a colorful life of experiences. He was born in Taiwan, raised in New Jersey, USA. He is the son to an ex monk from Tibet and his mother is Princess Dewa from Xinjiang who is a direct line from Genghis Khan. To top it all off he is a blogging, new age, and amazingly creative Rinpoche who has amassed millions of followers with his teachings across the globe to inspire as many people as possible to be conscious of our world and compassionate for one another.
Read on and be prepared to be enlightened by Tsem Rinpoche’s collection of inspirational buddhist quotes.
