This is really something that will touch your heart and you will be amazed how much love and patient some people have.

On a daily basis, there are many stories on the Internet of how animals are abused and neglected. A few days ago, I came across a story that I wanted to share with all of you…

A man in the UK, Leighton Naylor, felt sorry for his goldfish when he became ill and unable to swim. Instead of discarding him, and getting a new fish… he made him a life jacket!

When I read about this story of Einstein the goldfish, I was so touched by Naylor’s kindness! I love fishes too, and have many in my Ladrang. They are very smart and will come near me whenever I’m about to feed them… very cute.

Naylor who treats all of his pets as a family member couldn’t bear to see poor Einstein in such a state… so he did something about it. It’s amazing how true care can bring out within us strength and creativity. I guess that’s why those who care always manage to find a way to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.

Do read this touching story of Naylor and his friend Einster… share it with your friends!

Man Makes A Life Vest For Pet Fish Who Can’t Swim

A 32 year old man, from Blackpool, UK named Leighton Naylor has made a lifejacket for his pet fish named Einstein. Einstein was a healthy fish who had been learning to do tricks when he was struck with the illness that affected his swim bladder, making it impossible for him to swim anymore.

 

Einstein would turn upside down and sink to the bottom of his tank. Naylor said, “Then he sank to the bottom, stuck on his side, and couldn’t go any further. He just looked depressed, the poor fish. I was heartbroken. I thought I’m going to have to do something about this.”

 

Naylor used some recycled tubing to create a buoyancy aid. This little device made it possible for little Einstein to swim around the tank instead of sinking to the bottom.

 

Naylor said, “People have said I’m crazy but every animal is a valued family member… I’ve tried to train all of my fish but Einstein’s my star pupil. He can swim through my fingers and he was getting into fish football when he fell sick.”

What a beautiful story!

    This is so cute and wonderful because it shows that Einstein’s owner cares and that is the correct care you should have for your pet even if it is a goldfish, a dog, a cat etc. It is truly thoughtful that Einstein’s owner is so caring because he knows that Einstein is a life and lives need to be taken care of and animals are lives just like us so that is why we should care for them like how we would treat our kids or family.

    Other than the fact that it is so cute, the lifejacket must help so much and imagine if the owner was just one person that said “its just a fish, who cares?” then Einstein would have suffered, people in the world think just because they are some type of animal or that they are animals at all that they are below humans. But guess what? We are the SAME so every animal is entitled to rights just like us and they should be taken care of just like us.

  2. Lucas Roth on May 12, 2014 at 12:16 am

    This is so amazing and this man is so kind to this fish, i love animals and i would never hurt them ever. Keep swimming Einstein! Faith in humanity restored! Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  3. Felix Kong on Dec 3, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Dear Naylor, thank you that you never give up a little life and help Einstein able to swim again . You are so great and care to your pet, may all pet owners also can take responsible to their pet, not leave them alone when have any suffering.

  4. Edward Ooi on Dec 3, 2013 at 2:14 am

    Dear Rinpoche, this story is so touching! We can see that Einstein really loves Naylor, if Einstein never loved Naylor he wouldn’t even try to swim to the fish football field. I wonder what material does he use to invent the jacket. It just so cool.

  5. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 1, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, this is very heartwarming. For most of the people, when their pets are either sick or old, they will just abandoned them. I’m very touched by Leighton’s kind act, I think that he gave Einstein a second chance to live. Great person!

  6. Ck siah on Nov 29, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享与开示,所以我们对地球上的一切众生都要有慈悲心,当它们需要帮助时,我们就要出手相助。自从来到了克切拉佛教团体后,有时看到蚂蚁掉进水杯里,我会把他们救上来。有时感觉我的慈悲心有增加了,以往我是不会这样做的。我会在加油!!

  7. Jutika lam on Nov 29, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It’s great that even though Little Einstein may just be a small Goldfish it is great that Naylor cares to help Little Einstein by making him a aid to help little Einstein swim

    Like what Naylor said that many people think he was crazy I think he is really compassionate to help a little goldfish!

    This is truly a heart warming story!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

    Marvelous. Leighton Naylor is so kind and creative to help Einstein in whatever possible way he could, to help Einstein to swim as a fish. Imagine a fish cannot swim is like a man who cannot walk and no freedom at all. it’s all about helping each living being around us. When we develop equanimity among all living beings, our world will become a safer and more peaceful place to live.

  9. Wah Ying on Nov 28, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    This is lovely. This story tells that we do not abandon our loved ones when they are sick or not able to live independently. Miracles always happen when we take up the challenge and tried.

  10. LT Loo on Nov 27, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    From the title I thought Einstein “the scientist” was in trouble! I’m a gold fish enthusiast once and have read that this is the inherent weakness of gold fish. We can just watch our gold fish die a slow death once it show sign of swim bladder “disease. Naylor had proofed us all wrong wrong with little ingenuity when come to saving his pet fish!

  11. Uncle Eddie on Nov 27, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Yes, people might say he is crazy, and I believe that he is, but crazy with love and compassion! He is “crazy” of having a very good heart in wanting to value every animal as a dear family member. Who knows, perhaps the fish ‘Einstein’ could be his previous mother in his past life, and now he is treating him as his star pupil. When Einstein fell sick and could not swim, Naylor was frantic with depression and got heartbroken. Yes, that’s what Naylor is. He is crazy with love and compassion, which not many people have! That is why he took so much trouble to create a bouyancy device to make it possible for his dear little precious Einstein to be able to swim around the tank again,, to relieve his suffering, like what a Bodhisattva will do. May you be greatly blessed Naylor, you are my star, my hero and my greatest joy!

  12. Choongs on Nov 27, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    What a conincidence, one of my previous dog’s name is Einstein too.

  13. Patsy on Nov 27, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Einstein is so fortunate to have a good master who takes care of his welfare. Every living being deserves a chance to live and it is so heart warming to see Naylor made a life jacket for his pet fish. If not for the caring Naylor, Einstein would have been dead by now.

    People may say that Naylor is crazy, but to me Naylor is a very compassionate man who values every animal as a family member.

  14. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 27, 2013 at 3:19 am

    If we want to help any being we will find a way to make it happen, as we all have ingenuity and talents and we call can do something for others. We will find a way through to any problem.

  15. AdelineTan on Nov 27, 2013 at 12:59 am

    Mr Leighton Naylor is such a kind and compassionate person who really treats every animal as a valued family member, rejoice!
    So thoughtful of him to invent such a cute little life jacket for his pet fish that couldn’t swim due to injury, because of the loving care from Naylor, his fish could swim now, long live the fish! The story is so touching and inspiring.Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  16. abby f on Nov 26, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    I really love this story very very much! I am so happy to see people treat animals with love and care.

    What Rinpoche wrote on the above is so right. “It’s amazing how true care can bring out within us strength and creativity. I guess that’s why those who care always manage to find a way to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.”

    When we love a person/a pet so much, we will never give up and let them die. This type of greatest love arises from a simple heart of true love that will never give up no matter how.

    And I am shocked to know that people said Naylor is crazy for saving a fish. I would say those who don’t save their pets or loved ones are crazy…I don’t say this in a negative way but it is true. Why we don’t save/help them when we can??

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful story with us Rinpoche!

  17. Shelly tai on Nov 26, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Is such a compassion act ! Animals deserve to be happy and care no one like to be abandon especially when they are sick animal also the same. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post with us.

  18. Choongs on Nov 26, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Ingenious!

  19. Sharon Ong on Nov 26, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Love this story! Naylor and Einstein sure has a beautiful friendship. The life vest is such a creative and innovative contraption. Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story.

  20. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Nov 25, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    OMB, the gold fish is cute and adorable.

    Leighton Naylor is so compassion and thoughtful hence care for his gold fish.

    May this article open up our Bodhisattva seeds in our mind hence be more compassion and care to all mothers sentient beings…

  21. wansan on Nov 25, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing such touching story.

    Many people would have just bought another fish and trained it from scratch but Leighton Naylor opted to help this fish to swim like other fishes. Fish that’s not able to swim is a really sad thing, it’s as though a human who’s bedridden and not able to do anything. Animals deserve love and care. They have feelings too!

  22. Sofi on Nov 25, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    This beautiful story of Leighton Naylor and his goldfish, Einstein, really does show the extent of one’s ingenuity when one cares. The mind will think out of the box to come up with amazing solutions. Many would think goldfishes as decoration for their houses but Leighton had gone beyond that to interact and care for them, conscious of them as living beings. Thank you Rinpoche for this heartwarming story to show us kindness.

  23. Wendy Loh on Nov 25, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this story. To be honest, many people who have opted for poor Einstein to end his life because there is nothing in the fish-library that could save him. But there is certainly something in love and compassion that could. 🙂

  24. Ruby Khong on Nov 25, 2013 at 2:57 am

    Cute little goldfish. Especially with the life jacket. Makes Einstein look like a floating astronaut! He is very lucky to have a master like Naylor. Given any other homes, Einstein would have died by now. How Naylor sees animals like humans is inspiring as he clearly said “People have said I’m crazy but every animal is a valued family member”. Very Buddhist.

  25. Julien Roth on Nov 24, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    This is fantastic! I never would have imagined a life vest for a fish 😀 its so creative and kind. I would imagine that if people saw a fish that couldn’t swim, they would just leave it to suffer. But whoever did this and put all the effort onto making it possible for this fish to swim again is so compassionate.

  26. Wylfred Ng on Nov 23, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    这个分享真的令我领悟到新的东西。 其实我以前认为杀死小生物如蚂蚁或蚊子是没什么大不了的。 不过想深入一层杀死一只蚂蚁和杀死一只狗的业其实是一样的。
    所以我们不应该有“小而为之” 的心态。

    在这个视频中, 鱼的主人没有因为残障的是一只鱼而见死不救。 所以众生是平等的。

  27. Vinnie Tan on Nov 23, 2013 at 2:49 am

    It is just so great that little Einstein gets a second chance in life. I believe that not many animals do have a chance like that. As many people would think that it is too troublesome for them, hence they would discard these sick animals and buy a new one as their pet.

    I am so happy that with Naylor’s love for his fishes have given the second chance to Einstein so that he can live for a longer period of time. It is just so amazing what people can do so much things because of their care towards a cause.

  28. Lucas Roth on Nov 23, 2013 at 1:12 am

    this is such a nice story, i love it when people go and care for animals and help them. i am so happy Einstein got a good life vest and is now swimming nicely. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

    感恩仁波切的分享,就像Jerry 说得:没有真切地给予一切我们能给予的帮助,这是我们要重新深思的一环.常常对负伤的小动物念念经就以为自己已经做得很足够.这段片提醒了我们,我们能做远远不止这些!

  30. jerry_sito on Nov 22, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示

    这是如此的感动人心分享,当我们开始将我们的爱给予与帮助在一切有情众生的身上,那份感动是动容心玄的,这是一份有力的鼓舞,感恩这位朋友给予了这鱼一个重新的生活,让我们更深深体会到,只要我们用心,就一定能给予帮助与彰显我们的爱

    我们常常会忘记了,一切众生具有情,当我们遇见一些小动物受伤了或残缺或奄奄一息时,我们常只会给予祈祷或诵经回向予它们,然后呢?我们就这样悄悄地离开了它们,我们并没有真切地给予一切我们能给予的帮助,在仁波切的这个分享里,我们看到的是,只要我们用心并真正施予暖手的时候,即使是再恶劣的状况,它们都将会有了一个重生的机会

    我们都得经历无数的转世,累更多的福德资粮,得为人身,并继续精进的修行,好能证悟与离苦得乐,然而我们也许应该想像下,倘若因为我们某些恶业还没有清除下,或我们还是在这一世了造下了许多恶业,那么当我们下一世不得已的投生在畜生道时,刚好的我们投生的与这小鱼一样,可爱但是残缺,那么我们那时候,希望的是我们的主人想尽办法拯救我们,还是希望我们的主人因为我们是残缺的可爱小鱼,而就放任不管我们的生命,让我们自生自灭呢?倘若我们与可爱的残缺小鱼对换角色的话,我想我们都希望获得一件救生衣吧

    在仁波切的这个分享里,我学会了,倘若您真的希望拯救一切有情众生时,不应该都只做点到而止,不应该只给予有限的爱,而应该给予完全与无私完全的爱,因为这份无私的爱才是真正的拯救,并不是说我们没有菩提心,而是我们没有把菩提心发挥的更加博大与无限,我们总是给予了无限的藉口抵挡了无限的菩提心,在仁波切的这个分享里,也让我们学会了,一切有情众生具有情,我们不能因为我们是人类就对其他的众生有了分别心,就埋没了他们同样会痛,会哭,会无奈,会伤心的事实,我们与它们只是换个环境与样子或肉体,然而我们的微心识都是一样的,都是充满佛性的,切身地帮助它们,因为我们无法知道我们因为因果循环,我们与它们是会否有对调角色的一天

    感恩仁波切您无私的爱,感染了我们的心,感恩您总是给予我们教诲与给予我们鼓励的分享与开示,让我们常能警惕自己,反省自己,感恩您

    祈愿一切有情众生都不再受轮回下三道之苦,并能投生有佛法与常闻佛法的地方,以人身精进的学习佛法,祈愿他们与我生生世世都能遇见詹杜固仁波切这一位尊贵慈悲的上师,与仁波切一起参与佛法工作,并能常闻仁波切的教诲与开示,转化我们的心识,学习佛法,把佛法实践在我们的生活上,迈向离苦得乐的证悟之路

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

  31. Sean Wang on Nov 21, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    This is extremely cute and amazing. It is so inspirational and touching to see a human being care for such a small creature. Anyone else would just flush the fish down the drain but not Leighton. Good for him! May he have a wonderful life.

  32. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 21, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    The floating vest is soo cute and it fits Einstein perfectly, from here we can see that how much thoughts and work Naylor has putted into inventing this for Einstein. The second picture of Einstein looked very sad. Kindness is when we help those who are not able to help themselves out of the pure motivation for the sake of them to be well and happy. Naylor has made the first step to be the solution instead of just neglecting poor Einstein. People like him is hard to find nowadays, let us remember Naylor act of kindness and always be the solution of a problem. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this adorable heart warming post.

    Animals deserve love and care, stop cruelty now!

  33. KH Ng on Nov 21, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Leighton Naylor just wants to help help his pet fish, Einstein, which I think is very simple and pure. Many people would just pick up Einstein and throw him into the rubbish bin; but not Leighton. And he came up with an ingenious design of this life jacket. It is literally a life jacket for it give Einstein a second chance to live. It alleviated Einstein’s depression and certain death.

    Thanks Leighton for this inspirational act.

    Thanks Rinpoche.

  34. sandstone. . on Nov 21, 2013 at 3:20 am

    Oh my goodness. . how cute. It’s amazing, and so touching that Leighton cared even about the smallest little fish.
    I love how the bigger goldfish takes a peek at the life jacket before turning left. .this video really my restores faith in humanity. thanks for sharing Rinpoche

At the age of three, Sonam Dakpa Gyaltsen, the ruler of Tibet, and Panchen Sonam Dakpa recognized Sonam Gyatso as the reincarnation of Gedun Gyatso. He was escorted to Drepung monastery in a great procession and was enthroned. He founded many monasteries in Mongolia, Eastern Tibet Sonam Gyatso became the abbot of Drepung monastery and the abbot of Sera monastery. He was bestowed by the Mongolian ruler as The third Dalai Lama. He travelled extensively throughout Mongolia, performing miracles and teaching, spreading the Dharma till his death.

    Gendun Gyatso the Second Dalai Lama was born to in a noble family. His father was a well-known yogic practitioner. Gendun Gyatso was a special child ,at the age of four he could remembered his past lives and told his parents he wished to live in the Tashilhunpo monastery. He could even told his parents, his birth name and his father was Lobsang Drakpa, which was Tsongkapa’s ordination name. .At age of eleven he was recognized as the reincarnation of Gendun Drupa, the first Dalai Lama, and was enthroned at Tashi Lhunpo monastery. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this biography of the second Dalai Lama.

    In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

    It is a really huge place. Can’t imagine that all items are gift to others. Rinpoche has showed us that when we give, we create the cause to receive offering as well. This is the nature of karma. Be generous and compassion to all. Thank you Rinpoche for your care and love to everyone.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Drub who was identified as an emanation of bodhisattva of compassion. He was born the son of a nomadic farmers and there’s a legend about his birth where a large black raven protect him from intruders, crows and wild vultures. The black raven an emanation of Mahakala was told . He lived the life of a shepherd until the age of seven showing early inclination for a religious life. He was sent to the monastery and studied under many great famous scholars and was a student of the Je Tsongkhapa . He was posthumously given the title of First Dalai lama. He remained the abbot of Tashilhunpo Monastery until his death.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short biography of Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen. Amazing… Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen has a very good memory as he can mastered eight volumes of works that he taught and has given oral texts commentary. He would recite the mantras of Avalokitesvara and Manjushri thousands of times each day. He did serve as a teacher to numerous abbots of Gelug monasteries in Lhasa too. Inspiring post of a great master.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for sharing such a beautiful Buddha image and prayer. There are many stories about practitioners who have very strong faith in what they practice and ultimately, they gain attainments from that single practice. The nun was very kind to write this prayer and give us the opportunity to practice so we can be benefited from it as well. Her result proved that prayer and mantra are powerful, but we must have faith.

    While we are still alive, we should be preparing for our death. Accumulate good karmas and merits which we can bring with us to our next life. Good food, good car, big house, nice handbags are things we enjoy now but cannot bring with us when we die.

    How often do we do something virtuous? When we are free, we like to go shopping, meeting up with friends, eating, drinking, doing sports or traveling. All these activities don’t bring us long-term benefits, the benefits we enjoy after we are dead.

    For Malaysians, due to Tsem Rinpoche’s kindness, we are very fortunate to have a holy and beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Bentong to let us accumulate merit and purify our negative Karma. These people gathered in KFR to do something virtuous together, how wonderful!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the info and benefit of the above plants. My office used to have plants but no enough as suggested by the article. With this knowledge I hope more will get at least some small plants to put on the working table. We need fresh air and more greens in the office to keep the environment fresh.

    Padampa Sangye was an Indian yogi and spiritual master from southern India. He was well known for bringing Indian Buddhist teachings to China and Tibet and has travelling extensively his whole life throughout in India, Tibet, and China. He is counted as a lineage guru by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism , well known teacher and many prominent figures came to receive teachings from him. Wow …he was at Wutaisan too meditating ,teaching and in retreat until his death. He is well remembered for his support of women practitioners. That’s great.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great master.

    Interesting article …..Professor Reginald Ray shares about the importance and impact rituals mainly for westerners or non believer or non Buddhist. For many Westerners , they tend to view unseen beings as superstition . I do believe of that unseen beings do exist. They are always around us and we should keep in mind that as long as we do not disturb them , respect them they will do no harm in return. Ritual is a way of communicating with beings who really are out there . In Tibetan Buddhism, ritual is used in relation both to the seen and the unseen worlds. Buddhism is a path of mind transformation., meditation, visualization and so forth.
    Professor Reginald Ray explained a very deep insight of Tibet Buddhism , the traditional Tibetans and Western cultures.
    Well I have still lot more to learn from this post and I will read again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this sums up the core concepts of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-religion and multi-cultural country. However, everyone here lives in harmony and respects each other’s differences. All of us celebrate the festivals together.
    There are many festivals of different cultures being celebrated in Malaysia. For examples, the Indian festival Thaipusam, Chinese New Year, Muslim Hari Raya, to name a few.

    The more we are developed and advanced, the more we are exposed to harmful elements. For examples, the radiation from the technology devices, dust, carbon monoxide, chemicals found in the household products, etc. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of these harmful elements naturally without using chemicals. Plants like English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, Ficus and many more are good to purify our living environment. Some of then can be put indoor, some are planted outdoor. These plants are ideal to green up our environment and at the same time serve as a purifier.

    This is a great news! New Zealand has officially made it illegal to use animals in research and testing, people who are involved in animal cruelty cases will be prosecuted. This new law is passed on the basis that animals can experience positive and negative emotions too. Even though animals can’t talk but they can feel the pain, they have fear in them too.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind. The practice was conferred by a Dakini to Drupangsa. -Mantra: Om ar-kham zir-kam bu-ma-na-se ou-cus-ha-ma ma-ha tro-da hung phet

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
