Take a moment to read this. It won’t take much of your time. After reading, visualize yourself in that space laying there daily and enduring the slow suffocation and slaughter.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


I remember touching one of the sows in those crates. She was red and big with fourteen piglets tussling off to the side. She flinched. I could feel a strange sense of horror deep inside me, but I pushed it down. I rested my hand on her back and, for one brief moment, she leaned into it and then jerked away, as if burned. She could not understand my sudden interest in touching her with gentleness, no pig in the pork industry does. Anyone who can explain the rightness of a cage has never been in one, never felt the sides of it pushing and denying access to the natural world. They have not felt the frustration of nothingness, of being restricted, of being in a barren, empty world. When her instinct drives her to make a nest for her babies, she cannot. When her preference would be to nurse her piglets in a deep bed of leaves, she cannot. When she wants to run away from the humans who abuse her, she cannot. When she wants to burrow in straw with her sister and brother, she cannot. And when she is desperate to save her piglets, when they are taken forcibly from her at 2-3 weeks of age, when the wrongness of that separation is evident in her tense muscles and strange cries, she can do nothing to stop it. Everything done to her is an attempt at removing her from instinct and desire and what she wants and needs. We know what happens to her piglets. They too will be stripped of their dignity and of their pigness. Then they will be killed and eaten by a species who does not need meat to survive. She will spend years in that cage, repeatedly artificially inseminated, repeatedly denied access to a nest and the outdoor world, repeatedly abused and repeatedly stripped of her babies. I don’t need meat to survive. You don’t either. Pigs need to be allowed to express all that makes them them. And they cannot do that on a farm or in a place that sees them as roasters and production units. Since there are so many alternatives to pork, there isn’t any reason not to start choosing a compassionate diet now. Do it today, for the millions of sows denied true motherhood and the hundred million piglets turned into pork. We must honor who they are by not reducing them to what our palates desire.

    wow, i HATE animal cruelty and slaughter, they don’t deserve to be killed and treated this way. Animals have lives too so humans do not have to kill and eat them, so every single time you look at that juicy piece of meat, think of the bloody corpse it came from.

  2. tenzinkhenchen on Jan 19, 2014 at 9:44 pm

    This is so sad. I wish animals didn’t have to be killed for the selfish needs of human beings. This is very alarming. People need to know about it.

  3. Edward ooi on Jan 20, 2014 at 12:22 am

    I cannot endure especially when people torture animals. The animals never do anything to harm us except maybe the fierce animals such as crocodile and etc. Most animals have more loyalty than us. Why do we kill animals? What is the purpose and what do we gain eventually? I guess the answer is NOTHING. Whoever reads this please stop killing or torture animals, and if you don’t do this kind of things then help animals by promoting vegetarianism. Thank you

  4. Calvin Kam on Jan 20, 2014 at 9:24 am

    I can’t breath! I can’t move! I can’t feed my lovely child! I am waiting to be kill! I going to see my son get killed one by one! I am forever separated with my love one…why the world so cruel….
    Sometimes this is not just happened to the animals world, it happened to every sentient being in the samsara. To stop the karma cycle, we should try our best to be vegetarian. This is not easy, but I will keep it on, rather than waiting for more karma.

  5. AdelineTan on Jan 20, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    It is very very sad to see animals being slaughtered everyday just to satisfy the taste buds of some mankind. All animals have the right to live and be happy like what we all want. Stop eating meat now and go on a compassionate diet, go vegetarian, when there is no meat demand in consumer markets, no slaughtering of animals is needed. Stop the killings and cruelty to these poor helpless animals. Thank you for creating the awareness of the sufferings of the animals that they have to endure.

  6. Grace Leu on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    This is really sad that animals were treated cruelty. Nobody wants to stay in a narrow space and forcing by all kinds of mean actions. The message needs to be passed down ” please stop eating meat” ! P

  7. Wah Ying on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:53 pm

    作者用简单的词句写出了母猪的无力感和无奈,那是年年月月日日时时刻刻的沮丧。我无法想像自己活在这样的无力感之下,这样完全连行动自由、生产自由、喂养孩子的自由,其实连呼吸一口新鲜空气的自由都被剥夺的情况下生存下来。更不堪的是,她一直一直繁衍她的孩子,再眼睁睁把孩子送上砧板,被宰杀成为别人的食物。

    如果我们没有能力给别人带来快乐,至少不要给别人带来痛苦。只要我们愿意,我都做得到。

  8. Lucy Yap on Jan 21, 2014 at 1:00 am

    It is heartbreaking to see pictures of animals being abused,tortured and killed!This sadly happens too often and it’s true that more people have the power to help and don’t just educate about the different breeds.Ways to help out would make a difference.
    Just because they are animals doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings and can be treated cruelly.More people need to change their views, and realized that animals need our help and love.

  9. Carmen K on Jan 21, 2014 at 3:12 am

    For once, think and put yourself in the situation of the animal that you see right before your eyes. Their tears tug at your heart, Their cries instinctively creates a lump at the base of your throat, most of all…their suffering makes you reconsider whether you are really that cruel and cold-hearted to be able to put an animal through this mad ordeal all to satisfy your tastebuds.

    After all that, Can you really slice open the throat of the cows, dump the chicken in hot water, roast a piglet alive..knowing very well the pain that they have to endure for you. Have some consciousness, have a heart and go vegetarian. You do not need meat.

  10. Patsy on Jan 21, 2014 at 7:31 am

    No living being would like to live in a small constraint space. Due to human greed and appetite, animals suffered so much to please our palate.

    Please reconsider the next time you order your meal. Be Vegetarian. Once the demand stops, the supply will die off eventually.

  11. Han on Jan 21, 2014 at 10:16 am

    动物都有活着的权利,动物和人一样,渴望活着,同样爱护自身的孩子,我们人类凭什么将他们当食物?

    This is so inhuman I really feel for these animals! If anyone who reading this please stop eating them we do not need their meat to survive we can eat green that will produce less suffering for all theses animals. Thank you Rinpiche for sharing this blog with us.

  13. So Kin Hoe on Jan 21, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    If we consciously ignore the suffering of animals, we are no different with the most wanted criminals in the world. It shows how selfish of being humans when we let the animals to endure all the pains and suffering while we enjoy their meat after they have lived for so long in the undesired condition before they are brutally killed without any pain killer. Are we aware that we can become animals in next lives because of our own karma?

  14. Julien Roth on Jan 21, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    This is too much. Rinpoche had explained this very well. These animals who are stuck in these cages all their lives have never had any kindness whatsoever. So when someone does treat them well they are scared. This story really touched me and inspired me to take my vegetarianism more seriously. Thank you.

    众佛与菩萨都拥有一个共同点,那就是菩提心。。。

    当我们拥有了菩提心,我们就会希望渡化一切众生,一起登上菩提道/佛道。。。

    一切众生包括了天人道,阿修罗,人道,畜生道,地狱道以及饿鬼道,简称为六道。。。文章所提到的猪只,真好是属于畜生道。虽然它们的思想有限,不想我们人类那么复杂,但毕竟它们也是有生命,有感官,也会有痛苦的一面。。。

    除此之外,在归依五戒里,其中一戒也是最重要的一戒那就是“不杀生”。。。

    所谓,冤冤相报何时了??这一世,你杀了它和吃它的肉。下一世,你可能堕入畜生道时,相反的有可能被它杀和
    吃你的肉,何苦呢??

    还是尽早修持菩提心,得到解脱。。。

    Considering that pigs are intelligent beings that are sensitive to emotions, it is nothing but pure torture to be confined to such punishing conditions, repeatedly impregnated, have your off-springs forcibly taken away from you very much against your maternal instincts and eventually mercilessly slaughtered. Any one of these agonizing conditions that man inflict on these animals is sufficient on its own to “break” a human being and yet we human beings brutalize these life forms without flinching. Pictures such as the above and plenty more attest to how lowly human beings have fallen in terms of our humanity and our understanding of how all lives and all beings are connected. We cannot partake directly or even indirectly in such wickedness and not expect to create the causes to feel the same.

    What good can come out of eating flesh that is really the final product of the mutilation of a life after we have inflicted every pain and misery imaginable on it. How can being involved in any way in this chain of pain be good?

  17. Jun Zhen on Jan 23, 2014 at 12:38 am

    Very touching indeed. It evokes almost the same sort of feeling when watching “Earthings”, but with the above, it is from a slightly different angle, yet makes you feel more of the same. If you are a mother yourself, you will almost be able to relate, like myself.

    Pain is the same, no matter you are a human, or an innocent animal like the pig. A mother’s love is true and deep. So, why inflict onto others when you do not wish to feel that excruciating pain which you are not even sure if you can endure yourself?

    Thanks for sharing, my dear Guru. Going meatless.

    Can anyone imagine this! Fourteen sows kept tightly in a cage with hardly any space to move, or even to breathe. Except for these poor sows, none have felt the deep frustrations of nothingness, of being restricted, of being barren, of being in an empty world, which in the end they be cruelly killed off to be eaten. In this episode, millions of sows are denied true motherhood, and hundred million of piglets are turned into roasted pork to be eaten. Let us have this situation in reversal, and form a mental image that Earth was invaded by “carnivorous aliens” that consider humans as delicious food. Thousands of human beings were captured, and being hoarded and tightly packed into pens like the above mentioned “poor sows”. Every single day tens of thousands are to be skinned alive, have their throats slit, their bodies disemembered, packaged and graded seperately for sale. Babies of few months old taken away, fried crisply and served as a delicacy (similarly to suckling pig or fried chickens). This is what humans are doing to the animals everyday, but yet, we do not see or realise anything is wrong with it, as we are on the upper hand and the winning side of things! Like the great Albert Schweitzer said, “Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages”. And also as the saying goes, “Do unto others as you others to do unto you.”

  19. Andrew James Boon on Jan 23, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    And all this suffering for our own selfish want to satisfy our palate. It is not even a case of eating to survive anymore, we eat to merely fill a craving and not our stomachs…

    What has humankind evolved into? I could not be in a lift for too long let alone a cage that barely fits my body… and lets not even mention the conditions around the cage.

    As long as I am alive, I will be vegetarian and I will not take another life or be the cause for another living being to die to be the food on my table!

  20. Leu Chong Hin on Jan 24, 2014 at 1:28 am

    Human are using them as a tool to generate the wealth and ignore the physical body suffering that bring it to them. Hardly said then we are not part of root cause unless we are full vegetarian. We should respect each life being on this planet. All life are equally and they have their right to stay on as what human doing. Treat animals as part of our food consumption are totally wrong perception. we should change it.
    I feel shame of myself because until today not yet pledge to be full vegetarian. I should take their suffering as my so that I have no more accuses no be a vegetarian.
    Thanks for Rinpoches sharing.

  21. Wei Theng on Jan 24, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    It is sad to see this. When I imagine I am one of them… Eat, sleep,, sh** give birth, die in the cage, it’s really frightening!
    This article not just reminds me to be vegetarian, but also push me to do more Dharma work while I still have the chance because I will never know when I maybe one of the sows….
    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching!

  22. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jan 25, 2014 at 2:26 am

    Om Mane Peme Hum…

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, the picture above really touch our head to make us contemplate more…

    May we start less meat eater then heading to be Vegetarian as soon possible…

  23. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 25, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    All big and red, with 14 piglets around her, it must have been sheer pain and torture for her inside the cage. So used to pain, even a gentle touch scares her and she flinches from it.

    It’s always the same old adage. Why do to others what we don’t want to have done to us? Would we like it if we were put in a cage? Then what makes it different, just because it’s a pig? Even a pig has a desire for comfort and ease.

    Those who are going to eat the flesh of this sow,you may be shutting your eyes to it all. But it won’t go away. If the mother and young piglets are killed for food, shouldn’t whoever eat their flesh be equally guilty of killing?

  24. Wai Kee on Jan 27, 2014 at 12:24 am

    The key message is really we do not need meat for our diet to SURVIVE, its merely to satisfy our CRAVING. I cannot even bring myself to imagine to be in that situation, just like the fear of facing death during death meditation. So what’s the difference between what the pigs have to endure as compared to death. No difference – sad – please stop animal cruelty.

  25. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 28, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    It’s quite a sad and interesting feedback from Marji Beach, at least he was one of the many who had feelings. Animals are living beings as well, I find that sslaughtering/ abusing animals are very cruel. Only cold blooded and sick people can live under this kind of condition

  26. LT Loo on Jan 30, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    It just strikes me as I read this article that we are no better than her.The cage is Smasara that we choose to reborn into. It filthy and uncomfortable that we took as pleasure. When the Guru touch us gently with Dharma, we cringe and be skeptic. The piglets are things that we thought we own and attached to, which I’m very sure will be parted with us when the time and conditions come….

    Namaste , I like to vote for video entitled KP02 – Tara .I would like to ask is Prince Siddhartha ( Lord Buddha ) was Indian Prince as you have mentioned in this video KMP10 – Enlightenment Series ? I am asking this question not as Nepali but as earnest seeker of truth .Thanku

  28. Jace Chong on Feb 2, 2014 at 12:20 am

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    肉骨茶, 烧肉, 叉烧, 猪肉粉等很美味, 但看了猪只如何受一生的苦来满足我们一刹那的食欲真的非常不值得。

    我认为大家都是地球的居民, 没有谁比谁更优越, 每个生物都有自由生活的权力。人类太自私自利了, 不止掌控这些动物的性命并残杀它们。

    我相信每个举动都有因果业障, 我们一天不停止对肉类的需求, 宰杀动物的悲歌永远唱不完。宰杀者因杀业投身为被宰杀的动物, 被宰杀的动物因嗔恨变成宰杀者, 这样的轮回众生何时才能解脱?

  29. Sharon Ong on Feb 3, 2014 at 10:51 am

    As a former ham lover, I am as guilty for all these cruelty. Hence, I am going green to try to stop any further harmful actions.

  30. Edern Tan on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    I couldn’t believe what I was reading a moment ago…
    I went to sear chance if there were such things and to my horror it was real and happens to every slaughter house and a typical slaughter house kills up to 1100 pigs very hour… OMB we,like the article said, does not need meat to survive. I hope this article will be read by all humans and we will all covert to vegetarians. Giving all the animals freedom.

  31. wansan on Feb 4, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    I cannot endure seeing these animals suffering because of those who crave for their meat. Many do not know what these animals had to go through. The pain they feel every single day, the suffering of not being able to feed and care for their babies.. all these happened behind close doors and they end up being killed, cut and sliced nicely in the plates for us who crave so much for their meat. We should really take time to think and consider where and how do all these meat come from. Think twice of that piece of meat in front of you before putting it inside your mouth.

  32. Jutika lam on Feb 6, 2014 at 11:22 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Though I know how badly abused and tortured animals in the farms and slaughter houses are I never expected it to be this terrible.

    I just can’t believe that mother pigs are not even allowed to raise there own kids while they are being bred and sold to slaughter houses.

    This problem just keeps getting worse and I think that the primary reason is because though everyday a few people stop eating meat, more people eat more meat.

    I really hope that people will be more aware of this and stop eating meat.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Love
    Jutika

  33. Peter Tysdal on Feb 7, 2014 at 3:27 am

    Thank you for posting this paragraph. It’s true that we don’t need to eat meat to survive. Many Buddhists say that if you don’t kill an animal you still eat meat that someone else killed. To me this is letting someone else take all the bad karma so that we can selfishly enjoy eating meat that was produced from an act of extreme cruelty. All my blessings to Tsem Tulku, all my blessings to mother sow.

  34. maria on Feb 9, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    Your words are so powerful , that it has jolted me to realize I must re-commit to being vegetarian ( I was for 15 years)
    I ate meat again to please a boyfriend, so lost 13 years being a meat eater again.I noticed a change in my mind and body through eating meat again. It made me aggressive and I got off my spiritual path , which was very painful , my health deteriorated and I felt out of tune with myself and life. I think eating meat harms us on many levels as well as closing our hearts to the cruelty animals suffer daily in countless numbers. Thank you for your teaching of empathy for the pigs and cows and sheep and lambs and hens and all other animals who deserve happiness of living their lives naturally and peacefully. You got to me .Bless you.

  35. June Tang(KH JB) on Feb 10, 2014 at 10:54 pm

    This is so sad to see animals being slaughtered everyday ,they don’t deserve to be killed !!! There is so much other things to eat without meat .Become vegetarian is the best way to save animals life !Start NOW !!!

    We are one breath away from going to the lower realms that is how easy we can go to the net rebirth. IN Yonten Shigyurma our lives have been describes as a water bubble. Thats what stops us from going to our next rebirth. The root cause for being an animal is ignorance. It does not pay to be ignorant about the reality that we are in.

  38. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 14, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    What these animals endure is hell on earth. If we do not wish to be victimised like this we also should not do it to others.

  39. Edwin Tan on Sep 6, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    We are all living beings on this planet…yet just because we are more intelligent, we feel that we own them, their lives belong to us.

    In the past, cave man period, eating meat was probably for survival, in this day and age where we are more exposed to varieties, we can make smart choices to go veteran and harm less to animals.

    We do not understand their language, but the pains and sufferings are the same.

    Do visualise how the meat end up on our plates before we sink our teeth into them.

  40. Hee TS on Oct 11, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    感谢仁波切的分享,這里帶出人类對於吃肉的深层省思的讯息。無有情衆生愿意被殺,吃其肉。囘想如自身親感此難,將和其恐惧痛苦。别为了满足食慾而造業了!

  41. Vinnie Tan on Oct 29, 2014 at 6:47 am

    It is just so sad that these pigs do not even have the space to stretch themselves. The picture is just such a heart breaking site that all slaughter houses are trying to hide from the eyes of the consumers. The sows are just being used for their bodies to give birth to more pigs and to also feed the piglets. They constantly have to go through so much pain with regards to the kind of mental torture that they have to endure each time when their piglets are being separated from them. They can cry, but non from the slaughter house would care. I just cannot imagine the kind of mental and physical trauma that the pigs have to go through everyday, It is just so sad to see them this way.

    It is just heart breaking to see that the pigs do not even know what is a caring touch that is being laid on their bodies. For them to be reacting in fear as though they were being beaten.

    If only human beings can stop consuming meat products, then only these pigs and other animals do not have top endure so much pain in slaughter houses and the farms. It is only then they can be free to roam around like they should be.

  42. Pee Bee Chong on Dec 30, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. I feel sad to see this. I cannot image if I were the pigs, live in a cage with no freedom and waiting for my day to come. Human are cruel and selfish. They only think about themselves. Therefore we should start become vegetarian or reduce taking meat to save these animals. Thank you

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche

    In Malaysia we are blessed with a government that allows us religious freedom and for that I am thankful. So the Dorje Shugden issue should not be brought to Malaysia and Malaysian Buddhists have the right to explore the practice of Dorje Shugden without interference from any outside governments or outside religious authorities.

    In the Gelug Monasteries debate is an integral part of learning, retaining and understanding the Buddha’s teachings. So I laid out three possible debate scenarios for you. Therefore whatever is in the questions and in the answers is not definite but it is just thoughts I had. I would like all of you to read through it carefully and not be offended by what I say because no matter what I say, I still have the deepest respect for the Dalai Lama and my faith is unwavering in him, my teachers, my practice and my protector.

    你不享受宗教自由吗?你喜欢因为你的信仰被另一些人标签为恶劣的而被禁止上学、被迫与你的朋友和亲人隔开、不被允许经商吗?我们可以争吵至湿婆、梵天和毗湿奴毁坏、重建再保留宇宙几百次,即使是这样,我们也不会争出个胜负、对错来。事实是:我们每一个人都有权接受平等的对待,没有人应该面对基于自己的宗教信仰而被某些条例和规则所束缚的不公。无论我们的信仰是否被接受,或是否被视为正统的,说到底我们还是凡人一个。我们都需要食物、关爱、慈悲的对待,更值得拥有不可剥夺、与生俱来的权利,好比说选择的自由。不管是世俗或是宗教的领袖都不应从我们身上剥夺此权利。

    当雄登修持者靠近佛陀、莲花生大士或宗喀巴大师的时候,这些证悟者会将他们赶走,并说他们破坏了三昧耶,所以是不合格,也不纯净的人吗?

    “纯净的传承十分重要。它不仅必须拥有纯正的来源,还要能够说明出处。根据宗喀巴大师传承,即格鲁派,当上师授予教诲的时候,他们必须说明来源、出处,以及他们在何时接受这项教诲。上师不能随意告诉你“我从文殊菩萨那儿接受这项修持……”

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

    Bradley Kassian: Might interest a few people here. It’s amazing what can pop up on youtube these days. This initiation of Dorje Shugden was conferred in Los Angeles in the 1980s onto Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s own students in Thubten Dhargye Ling. Prior to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche giving the advice, Geshe-la formally requested Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to give an initiation of Dorje Shugden. Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen was a very strong and devoted practitioner of Dorje Shugden and you can hear Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s voice at the beginning of the video. After the formal request was made, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche himself, who is the overlord of all tantric mandalas, gave the profound initiation of Dorje Shugden to Geshe-la and all his disciples. And thereafter, Geshe-la and all his students practiced Dorje Shugden very strongly and very devotedly until the ban. : http://youtu.be/f6KuCPKDuCI

    Now I understand, spirituality is NEVER about how great my practice, my Guru, my lineage are. Spirituality is NOT a competition of I am better than you or I am the best, spirituality is NEVER about right or wrong, higher or lower, bad or good. All these are what make us bitter and unhappy, and are the reasons why we came to seek spirituality because we know deep down inside we should be someone with a more opened heart that accepts and tolerates. Why putting ourselves back to the bitter situation again when we are in spiritual?

    Then what is spirituality? From Tsem Rinpoche’s actions and teachings, I know loyalty IS spirituality. Humble, tolerance, respect, understanding, keeping promises and being kind are spirituality no matter what you practice, no matter what is your religion/belief. All the qualities above have nothing to do with what your religion/belief are, but how you act, speak and think determine if you are a spiritual person.

    Those who don’t like Dorje Shugden, why keep condemning people over and over? Why speaks against it over and over? If you think you going to stop people from getting ‘harm’ because Dorje Shugden is bad, your intention is to stop harm, but why end up you actually CREATING HARM everytime you speak against Dorje Shugden and put those who practice it down??? If your intention is pure and kind, then the results should be pure and kind too, but obviously you are hurting people’s belief and emotions, and you show no respect to people.

    Buddhism is about following the true lineage passed down from Buddha Shakyamuni to his disciples and i personally find that Buddhist teachings are very logical hence i continue to learn and practice it by following my Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. If Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector practices by high lamas such as Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche and passed down to Tsem Rinpoche, how can they be doing the wrong practice? After all, Dorje Shugden is an “Enlightened Protector” and not just any normal worldly protector. Enlightened protector are suppose to help excel our Dharma practice and help us clear away our Dharma obstacles in this degenerate age. Logically speaking, then how can an enlightened protector bring harm to us or even help us to harm others? Also how can an enlightened being harm another enlightened being? That is illogical.Each of us bring with us imprints from previous lives and for some of us, we do have strong affinity with Dorje Shugden due to our practices from previous lives. I personally feel that i have a very strong affinity with Dorje Shugden protector and if it’s good enough for my Lama and his root Gurus and other high lamas to practice it, i think i can safely practice it without any doubt and at the same time still respect H.H. Dalai Lama. Thank you Rinpoche for speaking up.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.
