This is really a hilarious video. Take a few minutes out from your day and watch. It is not in English, but just watch..the expressions and body language are universal. It is a stunt pulled in the shopping centre to show the public how sheltered they are.

It is amazing to see who some people are outraged to see how ‘the meat is produced’ in front of their eyes in this video. I mean why did they come to buy sausages in the first place if they are going to be so outraged??

Where on earth do people think meat comes from, some mythical meat tree?

How idealistic some are about where meat comes from… I mean where do people think meat actually comes from? It falls from the sky or grow on trees perfectly and effortlessly without killing, without blood and without pain? Animals suffer tremendously before they are murdered and during the slaughter process. They know they are going to be killed. Animals are put through tremendous pain before we eat them and that is a simple fact to realize each time we consider swallowing their flesh.

If everyone went to the animal slaughterhouses before buying meat, many would give up immediately irregardless of religious beliefs, morals or ethics. If you cannot visit slaughter houses, please go on youtube and search for them. It is worth your time to educate yourself on the truth. There are thousands of videos… inform yourself. If you are scared to see the slaughterhouse videos, why are you not scared of eating meat?

Do not eat meat. Do not harm animals. Do not bring pain to anyone especially those who cannot speak.

    This might be funny to some people, but this is how sausages, ham etc are made, well literally. People just don’t see the ugly side of taking meats. Even if they see it, some prefer to ignore it, just for the sake of eating it.

  2. Edward ooi on Mar 31, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    I totally agree with what Rinpoche said. If they are able to eat meat then why can’t they face the truth? Why would some people vomit when they see animals being killed? Isn’t it worse especially when you are eating them? Everyone knows that meat comes from animals which also means that you will have to kill them. But why can’t they face it?

  3. Lucas Roth on Feb 3, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    This is so true! Why do people think meat falls from the sky? They are killed so they shouldn’t be surprised that this is how they get their death on a plate.

  4. Edward ooi on Jan 30, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, the last person reaction is just what Rinpoche have wrote on the above. She doesn’t like to see how animals are being slaughtered but she still takes meat. Actually most of them are just the same it’s just that her reaction is more funnier. I guess?

  5. Vinnie Tan on Aug 16, 2013 at 12:16 am

    It is very true. Many people do not know that meat is being produced like this. Many do not even think that they are eating something that was alive and running before. I believe if there are more marketing campaigns like this around the world. The animals that are being killed for their meat would be much lesser!

  6. Jutika Lam on Feb 21, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    LOL!!! Hehehehe This funny and hilarious video is not just funny but also very educational to a lot of people consuming eat everyday, it is somewhat like a lesson that the meat we eat doesn’t just fall from the sky, butchered and eventually killed just for our meals.

    I really hope that more and more of these kind of cool ideas to educate more and more people on how much sufferings and death animals like a cows, pigs or sheep’s have to go through to become steaks,lamb, bacon and so on.

    I hope ideas like this would also create awareness so that more and more people would be educated on the sufferings of animals and eventually take a pledge to become a vegan or at a vegetarian or even taking a pledge pledging to take a few days of the week’s meals to be vegetarian.

    It is true what people say that “If slaughterhouses had glass walls the world would be a meat free world.

    I also love two of Rinpoche’s quotes which are:

    ” If you are scared to see the slaughterhouse videos, why are you not scared of eating meat? If you are scared to see the slaughterhouse videos, why are you not scared of eating meat?”

    “If we have money to buy meat why do we not have the money to donate to animal sanctuaries?”

    I also like Rinpoche’s saying “Do not eat meat. Do not harm animals. Do not bring pain to anyone especially those who cannot speak.”

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this funny and at the same time educational video.

    Love
    Jutika

    If people knew where their meat comes from, so many people would stop eating meat. They do not think that meat comes from a meat tree but rather they wish not to think abou it. I find that very stupid. It is like saying you would eat poison and think it will okay just by believing it is not poison.

    Just a fact, scientists are experimenting with “growing” meat by cloning protein cells. So, there could be a possibility of vegetarian real meat.

    • sarahyap on Feb 6, 2013 at 9:16 pm

      Lol.. yes it is funny that when the actual thing is put before them, people refuse to accept that the sausages they love comes from an animal’s death. It is the classic case of avoidance and let someone else do the ‘dirty’ job behind the scenes.

      That’s why although I would have preferred very much for people to be vegetarians, but if you can’t then lead a life like Mark Zuckerberg who eats only what he kills (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/ceo-of-facebook-says-i-only-eat-what-i-kill.html)

      I also did some research regarding grown meat and came across this interesting web that talks about it. http://www.livescience.com/5872-mad-science-growing-meat-animals.html

      The interesting thing is what was said at the bottom on the article:

      “If every package of naturally grown meat by law should have the text, ‘Beware, animals have been killed for this product,’ I can imagine a gradual cultural shift,”

      I think this quote is really true.

  8. Sean Wang on Nov 19, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    This is a very funny way to explain to people how their meat comes! I bet that some people think that bacon comes from a bacon tree. People need to know about where their meat comes from.

  9. Lucas Roth on Nov 8, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    these people do not have the right to be outraged, where do they think their meat comes from the sky. everyone should be a vegetarian. if you cannot stand watching an animal suffer and die then you should not eat meat, be a vegetarian and be happy

  10. patsy on Nov 5, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    I don’t understand how the shoppers can feel so shocked while some find it repulsive and spit out the meat they tasted. This is how animals are slaughtered for consumption. It is that not many people visit a slaughter house to know the truth. This video conveys the truth indirectly showing how animals are killed.

  11. Julien Roth on Nov 4, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    I found this video funny. This was because the people in this video had no idea how and where meat came from. I love it!

  12. Milly on Nov 4, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    Animals also feel pain and fear when they are being gathered up for the slaughter house. But this realization never actually hit me until I began to learn more from Rinpoche’s teachings about vegetarianism and cruelty to animals. If we visualize and exchange roles with them, how would we feel. So if we fear to undergo this pain, then we should not inflict in on these animals too. I guess if people were to actually get to see how animals are being slaughtered for our consumption, then more and more would turn to vegetarianism or reduce their meat intake.

  13. Adrian Chow on Nov 3, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, everything seems alright if the killing did not happen before our eyes. We are so in denial. For example the video here, there’s one lady even had a second helping of the meat ball from the plate but as soon as the ‘butcher’ took a piglet and put it into the ‘slaughter’ machine, she immediately scolded the man and she left after that. Why are people are behaving in this way? Is there a magical painless meat tree, and all the meat in the hyper marts are from that tree?

  14. Jessica Yap on Nov 3, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    I especially like what Rinpoche said. Where on earth do people think meat comes from? Some mythical meat tree?

    I used to think then when I was still consuming meat that so long I do not do the killing it’s alright. How very ignorant of me! How much of negative karma I’ve created for myself. Well not anymore!

    If we can treat our pets with loving compassion, why can’t we show the same kindness towards other animals. All sentient beings deserves love and compassion too.

    Thank you for the constant gentle reminder, Rinpoche. You’re my biggest inspiration!

  15. edward ooi on Oct 30, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    This video is so funny. But at least they didn’t slaughter poor animals for the show. Love animals

  16. judy lam on Jul 17, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    The video is very effective way of showing to people that every meat dish that lands on our plate has caused suffering. If we can educate people in that way, chances are more people would think twice about eating meat.

  17. Yoke Fui on Jul 7, 2012 at 8:40 am

    There is no better way to show us the cause and the direct result than this hilarious video.

    “Modern” day people are sheltered from the truth because due to business specialisation,we are removed from it. From the expression on the consumer’s face, I’m not surprised that she didn’t realize that sausage comes from a live pig. I was like her too, I never relate the frozen food in nicely wrapped bags to the animals that live and breath like me.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the brutal truth.

  18. David Lai on Jun 25, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    This is such a brilliant experiment on people’s perception and fixed mindset. We are all guilty of it when we eat meat. It is so funny that people wouldn’t mind buying meat that is cut up but they would react so adversely when they see a little piglet get slaughtered for mere sausages. Each of the passer-bys reacted when they realized that a little piglet was going to be slaughtered.

    We are like that. Although we subconsciously know where the meat comes from but we are deep denial of the pain, suffering and blood that comes of it. Hence, reaction of this video is actually quite funny because of the inherent contradiction in it. It would be a good video to highlight this contradiction that will help people come to terms with it.

  19. freon on Apr 19, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    This is a very good “educate” idea to educate people to become vegetarian. Because of the Greed , many of us choosing to ignore seeing the pain that they bring to others. Ignoring the truth and hide in the “so call comfort zone”.

  20. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 24, 2012 at 11:53 am

    If most of us had to kill our food I think most of us will be vegetarians. Especially we have not been brought up to kill our own food. The big food chain who wants to sell meat and make a lot of profit will only want to show you meat nicely canned, and packaged without all the horro and violence that came along the production process of a slab of meat.

    The meat that we eat came from a lot of suffering, pain and anguish not only from the past events but also future events to come from eating that slab of meat. It is a clever prank, that shows how many of us fool ourselves to carry on even after much evidence has been presented to us.

  21. Carmen Koo on Jan 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Hahaha, this video is very funny, Rinpoche, thank you for sharing. The expressions of the public is so varied and they seem so shocked as if it never occured to them that pork sausages comes from pigs.

    I guess people never really bothered to find out deeper into their thought process when a plate of meat is presented infront of them. I’m thinking this is what we generally think (and the same goes for me, prior to watching Earthlings and related videos of how our meat comes about from Rinpoche’s Blog):

    1. See a plate of meat
    2. Yum, food to nourish myself
    3. Eat
    4. Digest

    Within that thought process, what is missing is this : “Hang on a minute, where did this come from? How did it get from the farm to my plate? How did this living being die, to end up on my dinner plate?”.

    However, the fact that meat is food has been implanted within their mindstream from a very young age, hence being ignorant about where it comes from and never really finding out the truth.

    The onus lies on those WHO KNOW, to educate those who don’t know about what is the truth about the meat industry, because those who know have been fortunate enough to be educated by others, or blessed with a curious mind.

  22. Choi Sheem on Jan 17, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    This is a funny video on the surface. But if look deeper, it it making a big impact on people who loves to eat meat and meat products. Most of us are not exposed to reality on how meat comes to our table. To most people living in the city, meat comes from the supermarket in nice and clean packaging. We are too ignorant to realise all the pain and sufferings the animal have to go through before ending up on our dinner plates. The Earthlings really helped in my family’s decision to switch to meatless diet.

  23. tancho on Jan 12, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I admire your efforts to promote vegetarianism. However, I’m unsure if you are aware that the dog food fed to your pet dogs are very much meat based. No disrespect intended, just pointing out a fact.

  24. Cynthia L on Jan 10, 2012 at 5:06 am

    I think this is such a brilliant idea to convey a powerful message like this. I had a good laugh watching the video.

    I wonder if social awareness campaigns like this work in the Asian countries. I find Chinese seafood restaurants terrible. Customers will personally point and select the fish and other seafood they want for dinner straight from the tank so that it’s FRESH. Fresh or no fresh, it’s still a dead animal. Sigh.

  25. Julia Tan on Jan 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    The video looks funny. But it’s the truth. How can people don’t know where are their food come from. People need to know the truth and always be reminded. No one wants sufferings. Basically people do have compassion. just that we always choose to ignore the truth. Let the desire take over. This apply to everything in our lives. 

  26. Margaretlee on Jan 9, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I think this prank is the best educational prank I have ever seen. The lady tasted the sausage and from her expression, the sausage was damn tasty. Then later on, when she saw how the “live” pig was put inside the machine and out come the other end some freshly made sausages, her face was disgusted.

    It reminds me that we should be always look at things further and beyond our simple samsaric pleasures.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video. What a great teaching!!!

  27. john on Jan 7, 2012 at 8:11 am

    Reminds me of my friends piglet story, he was working on a farm fixing a fridge and went to tell the worker about the repair he had made to the machine.
    He found her in one of the pig barns collecting the dead piglets and putting them in a stainless steel bucket. I don’t think he had the stomach for seeing them dead at such a young age but thought to himself, stainless steel, thats nice and hygienic and took a comfort in that. The two of them carried on through the barn discussing the fridge problem and collecting deaders.
    He said that they then found themselve stood infront of a big stainless steel hopper and agsin he was impressed and found distraction in the apparent care for hygiene shown by the farmer, no sooner had the thought formed than she pressed a button on the hopper which he now realised was a big mincer which proceeded to pour the now liquid piglets back into the same bucket for feeding to the pigs…..

    His shock at seeing this manifested as annoyance at the fact it was months before he could stand the smell of bacon cooking as it brought him right back to that day, and he really liked his bacon butties…

  28. Jean Mei on Jan 7, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Initially I thought to myself, isn’t it obvious? Just like how a french fry comes from a potato… that sausage could not have come from anywhere else but from a pig.

    However, I must admit that when I wasn’t a vegetarian I didn’t see things as clearly as I do now. When I saw a fried chicken leg, I didn’t think about the chicken itself – all I saw was a fried-skinned chicken leg. Not the body of the chicken, nor the head, nor the blood that ran through its veins, nor the little feet, and definitely not the pain and feelings of the chicken. I didn’t care at the time, the chicken tasted damn good.

    This video is funny and meaningful – although I doubt that the point of the video was to make people think about what they consume… it just so happens that that was the effect!

    Two thumbs up!

    • ruby khong on Jan 7, 2012 at 11:08 am

      Yeah Jean Mei I can totally related to what you wrote here. If Rinpoche hadn’t given us the Earthlings video, I would still be eating bbq wings and roasted pork! eeew! Just the thought of it now creates a tight lump in my stomach and throat.

      Someone told me this story when we were in USA last year; that one of his American girlfriends was served Steamed Fish (with the head, tail and all!). She was screaming at the dinner table. He was puzzled as she is not a vegetarian. When the drama was over, she said that she did not know that the fillets that she has been eating came from a Fish!!! Is this stupidity, ignorance, or just lack of knowledge!

  29. ericchoong on Jan 7, 2012 at 1:12 am

    谢谢仁波切的分享。
    看了这片子似乎很好笑,但其实里头有真正的意思。这就是人类的本性。
    明明知道杀生是痛苦,面对着这情况觉得杀死动物是残忍的,但面对美味可口的食物时就会忘记一切,
    我们真的很矛盾。这部片子很讽刺,适合一些肉食者看。我会把它放在FB和大家分享。

  30. lewkwanleng on Jan 6, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    It is a prank, but yet, it shows how people are ignorant about where the meat come from. We always want to think that our meat is produced without sufferings from the animal, but after watching the “Earthings” video, we know it is not true. Most if not all the meat we consumed are produced by human deliberately killing them.

    Yes, please do not eat meat, do not harm animals and do not bring pain to anyone especially those who cannot speak.

  31. Elsie toy on Jan 6, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    F everyone had to kiill the own poultry or sjaughter their own animal for their. Own meat I can say many of them would become vegetarian. Because they don’t see the cruelty and pain they create to the innocent animal. . I can say angry at my friends from mahikari and my muslim friends who say these animals are put on earth for our consumption. Always say as long as u don’t don’t make them suffer but the process of being suffocated is suffering even though the knife is sharp. Sigh I just don’t have the knowledge to debate with them. My mahikari friends would always say purify them before eating would remove the toxins from the meat wish I have the wisdom to share with them to be vegetarian.

  32. Mc on Jan 6, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    I think this is a clever and effective way of making meat eaters confront the truth of their part in the butchering of animals. (This is certainly an inspirational idea to have a ‘Freshest Free Meat Road Shows’ along the same lines). What i got from the video is that most people are “blind” to the part they play in the treatment and torture of animals BUT once they are made to be involved (either voluntarily or involuntarily) their humanity and kindness kick in and they are immediately repulsed by the very thought that an animal has to die. I am very certain that those people in the video will not be looking at a sausage the same way again.

    The need to bring awareness to the public is paramount. And to bring the message in an innovative way so that the message gets in before the ego and conflict gets in the way.

    This is brilliant and definitely worth circulating. I wonder is super markets here will allow such things.

  33. tenzin llhamo on Jan 6, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    You are right Rinpoche!
    ‘I mean where do people think meat actually comes from? It falls from the sky or grow on trees perfectly and effortlessly without killing, without blood and without pain?’
    I used to think that way too. How ignorant! I used to go to the market and see the slaughter in front of my eyes yet I ignored the pain and sufferings they were going through. Thank you for the constant reminder on how they suffer just to end up in our stomach and into waste.

    If it is not Guru’s compassion and kindness we would not have the chance to learn and practise dharma in Kechara. Guru is very important because he is a person who will guide and lead us to enlightenment. He choose to be with us so we can transform our mind. Hence we must always appreciate our Guru and change our mind to be better.

    We are the only family to the senior pets, how cruel it is to abandon them when they are old and helpless. It is a time our pet needs us most because they are in pain or suffering from discomfort, and we should be more sensitive to their needs. Very heartwarming to read a list of ideas to shower the raging pets with some tender loving care. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Every time I read story of incredible loyalty shown by animals, I’d be marvelled at how more faithful, loyal, humane and selfless they are compared to us. Captain put us to shame. Many of us cannot even be faithful and loyal to the person sharing the same bed, let alone a dead someone… for six years! May we be inspired to be loyal and faithful to people who matter to us and who had benefitted, like our guru and our parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very important teaching. It is simple logic; working on our mind will last us in our future life (long term investment) while focusing on our body only last us as far as this lifetime (short term investment and often time without return), if the body does not already give way part by part, prematurely. Therefore, utilise our precious time on earth to invest in our mind. Every pleasure that derives through this body is short-lived anyway.

    This is very sad. In the new modern business environment I am shock that this is happening in India. This brick kiln management has clearly abuse the labour and has no qualm in admitting that they are treating the labour as slave.

    How can the worker work for 12 to 18 hours in this harsh place. Furthermore, they were not provided any safety gear and have to endure the heat in the kiln. The more scary thing is that they allow children in this dangerous work place.

    Thankfully, the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has taken steps in providing new guidelines. I hope the multinational companies there will adhere to the regulations and guidelines to stop this abuse.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and a reminder that how fortunate are we living in much better condition.

    Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with our daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.So scientists did discovered that people living near busy roads have a higher chance of developing dementia.Its the air-pollutants can get into the brain via the blood and which lead to neurological problems.
    Elderly monks live a very quiet life in the monastery, far away from the city do not develop dementia as Rinpoche noticed.The air is clean and healthy that leads them to live longer.
    Rinpoche have made a good choice to have KFR at Bentong in a natural forest environment. Whereby all of us can have a healthy.quiet and peaceful mind to do meditation,learn and practice Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Learn and practice Dharma,work for Dharma before its too late.Try not waste our precious time ,as we won’t know what will happens next. So wasting time on samsaric activities that bring comfort and pleasure to the body is of no use .what will benefit us now and at the time of death is to cultivate our mind with dharma and dharma activities. Stay healthy have a healthy body , mind and have Dharma close to us .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this powerful teachings

    This is a good article on Serkym offering and Kawang. Earlier when I just joined Kechara I do not understand why we have this rituals and why some of the offering materials are so expensive. Now I understand that we are making offering to the enlightened beings so we should offer the best.

    Thank you Bradley for your sharing.

    Malaysia is a beautiful multi-racial country with beautiful traditional clothes each different race and culture.That i am proud of it as i love our traditional chinese cheongsum and nyonya kebaya.There are many different cultures in Sarawak too with many variations of tribal dress in different styles. Many of these groups have their own style and colour which caught my eyes by looking at those beautiful pictures shared. Here we can live happily with many different groups and can have religious freedom.But not so lucky for others whereby they attacked .injured each other like the Dorje Shugden issue in Tibet.I do hope the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Without a doubt, it is the miraculous power of the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, who worked this magic and saved life. The deep faith in Dorje Shugden let the young Chin Wei suffered only minor injuries despite the collisions resulting in severe damage to the car. May Chin Wei recover swiftly and may his faith in Dorje Shugden be forever strong. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this with us.

    There are have many types of people in the world but we are all the same. We will face the same sufferings of birth, aging, sickness and death. And the truth is no one can be escape until or unless we become an enlightened beings. As such, there is no different between these
    Black or White.
    Woman or Man.
    Young or old.

    I wish Deddeh Howard will be recognized by others and applaud her talent.

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
