I have always loved birds and it breaks my heart to see them mistreated, especially in pet shops. Many of the birds in the Tsem Ladrang aviary are rescued from pet shops that did not take good care of them.

Among the birds we have, there are two very beautiful African Greys – Aki and Jamyang. I brought Aki back from a pet shop two years ago. There were two African Greys at that time, one was Aki and the other was a younger African Grey. Aki was in the pet shop for 4 years when I met him… no one expressed any interest in him as he was already 45 years old. It broke my heart that Aki was left in the pet shop for so long in a small cage, with no hope for a good life. Without much thought, I decided to adopt him. Now he is happily living with the other birds in the aviary.

Jamyang is the other African grey, and he’s estimated to be only one year old. About 2 months ago, I was walking around a shopping mall and decided to walk into a pet shop. Inside, there was an African Grey chained to a perch. You could tell that he was lively, but didn’t have much moving space… Instantly, I knew I had to adopt Jamyang. It broke my heart to see him contained in such a claustrophobic pet shop in the basement of a shopping mall. It was not an appropriate living space… there was no sunlight and proper air ventilation…

African Greys are very loving, playful and intelligent animals. They are known as the “Einstein’s” of the parrot world because of their incredible speaking ability. If well taken care of, they can live for up to 50-60 years, although there are cases where they have lived up to 73… or even 93 years old! Both male and female African Greys are similar in appearance, while the younger ones can be recognized by a dark grey or black eye, grey-tinged undertail-coverts and a darker red tip to the tail.

Jamyang now lives in a separate cage from the others as he is still adapting to the new environment. I had the Ladrang put in toys for him to play and to also feed him fresh fruits daily. The doctor told us that Jamyang is underweight so it is important that we give him fresh vegetables daily besides his regular seeds… his favourites are corn and carrots! Just a few days ago he has been moved to a new and happy large aviary where he is enjoying himself.

I am glad Jamyang, Aki and all the other birds in the aviary have a proper living environment now. It gives me a peace of mind to know that the birds are living happily and healthy.

Tsem Rinpoche

P.S. I got the Ladrang to research on African Greys and below are some of the information they found.

 


 

CHARACTER & BEHAVIOUR

Unlike other parrots, wild African Greys are quite intelligent and have been documented imitating the calls of several other species. Dr. Irene Pepperberg’s research with captive African Greys has scientifically demonstrated that they possess the ability to associate simple human words with meanings, and to intelligently apply the abstract concepts of shape, colour, number, zero-sense, etc.

 

According to Pepperberg and other ornithologists, they perform many cognitive tasks at the level of dolphins, chimpanzees, and even human toddlers.

 

Many pet Congo African Greys learn to speak in their second or third year. Timnehs are generally observed to start speaking earlier. Both subspecies seem to have the same ability and tendency to produce human speech, but vocal ability and inclination may range widely among individual birds.

 

One notable African Grey is N’kisi, who in 2004 was said to have a vocabulary of over 950 words and was noted for creative use of language. For example, when Jane Goodall visited N’kisi in his New York home, he greeted her with “Got a chimp?” because he’d seen pictures of her with chimpanzees in Africa.

 

A study published in 2011, led by Dr. Dalila Bovet of Paris West University Nanterre La Défense, demonstrated that African Grey parrots were able to coordinate and collaborate with each other to an extent. They were able to solve problems set by scientists—for example, two birds could pull strings at the same time in order to obtain food. In another example, one bird stood on a perch in order to release a food-laden tray, while the other pulled the tray out from the test apparatus. Both would then feed. The birds in question were observed waiting for their partners to perform the necessary actions so that their behaviour could be synchronized. It was also noted that the parrots appeared to express individual preferences as to which of the other birds (partners) they would rather work with.

 

Their sociability and intelligence make African Grey parrots excellent pets. However, the same qualities mean that African Greys require a special commitment by their owners to provide frequent one-on-one interaction and supervised time out of their cage. They must be kept entertained and busy with people and toys or they may become stressed and develop self-destructive behavior. African Greys require large cages, a varied diet that includes fresh foods, and plenty of safe and destructible toys. If not provided with these items, African Greys quickly develop unpleasant behaviours and may eventually develop health problems such as feather-plucking that are difficult to remedy.

 

Even the healthiest, happiest pet African Grey will generate a fair amount of mess and noise. Like most parrots, they are non-domesticated, and even a well-socialized, hand-raised, aviary-bred bird is only one or two generations removed from its wild predecessor. Despite this, there is a long recorded history of African Greys being kept by the ancient Greeks, wealthy Roman families, King Henry VIII, Portuguese sailors, and others.

 

 

FLOCK INSTINCTS

African Greys have strong flock instincts. The significance of the flock to our Greys can be used to ease assimilation of our new African Grey with other birds.

 

In cases of assimilating an older Grey that had a “difficult” history, there was a case study where a 4-year-old female Grey assimilated successfully into its new surroundings. This female Grey was nervous and fearful, did not much like humans, could not be handled, would not eat anything but seed, and did not know how to play with toys. Since she had not previously developed a real bond of trust with a human, she presented a special challenge. It could have taken months to develop trust from this bird.

 

However, by using their flock instinct the caretaker allowed the other Greys to develop the bond and trust that will ease and speed up the assimilation process. The result: within a very short time, this grey was eating fresh food and playing with toys. It also became more animated and “outgoing” because of the stimulation of “the flock” she encountered daily.

 

It is also beneficial for a young grey to be raised among older greys. They learn faster just by watching their seniors.

 

Although general experiments and practice of flock instinct showed signs of success, we cannot assume that all situations will bear the same results. Sometimes, the sensitivity of the grey towards each other can also cause disharmony.

 

 

GREYS AND PUPPIES/ DOGS?

A puppy can be trained to live with your grey. However, the Grey, because of his/her age, might not be so tolerant. They are natural enemies. So, it just depends on both the bird and the puppy and how they react to each other and how they are trained. NEVER leave the puppy and bird alone together for any length of time, even if you think at some point they are both compatible.

 

On the other hand, they might end up being best of buds. Some parrots ride on the backs of dogs and others playing with one another. But it just depends on the individual personalities of both of the animals.

 

 Jamyang is one beautiful African Grey!

 

 He loves interacting and all the attention!

    Hello to every one, it’s truly a good for me to pay a visit this site, it includes important Information.

  4. Jutika Lam on Feb 6, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It breaks my heart as well when i see animals being abused, being killed for their meat or coat. I also hate it when pet shop owners stuff lots of birds in to one small cage just to safe space as well as well as saving time to wash the cages and clean up the poo.

    Getting back to Jamyang he is so cute and adorable especially the way he stand on KB’s shoulder.
    Rinpoche is always so kind and caring towards animals and that Rinpoche is also always on the look out for stray dogs that need food as well as animals that are in a pet shop but are stuffed up in a small cage.
    I love Rinpoche’s kindness and that is why I too am inspired to feed stray dogs when I have the time to feed them, the feeling after one has done a good deed is so heartwarming that it inspires me to have love and care for not just dogs and cats but also other animals.

    It is also nice to know the fact that when I go vegetarian for 2-3 days a week i have done a good deed for animals to be slaughtered slightly later. Though it is quite sad that there are still millions of people in the whole world eating meat i believe that one day the world will be meat free.

    Thank you Rinpoche for spending time to share with us about Jamyang as well as some knowledge on African Gray’s.

    Love
    Jutika

  5. sarahyap on Jan 16, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I like Jamyang very much! He is now living with a lot of other friends in the Ladrang aviary. Among all the birds in the aviary, Jamyang is the cleverest! He can speak very well and clearly… and it’s also not very difficult to teach him to speak. Some people say that this species of bird, which is African grey has the intelligence of a 5 year old, so no wonder he pick up things pretty quickly!

  6. Jessica Yap on Dec 22, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Jamyang is so cute! hehe I’ve never been a big fan of birds.. but Jamyang is too cute!! Just like any other animals, they need proper care and we need to do our homework and research in order for us to understand the nature of our pets. Rinpoche is so kind and loving towards all animals.. =) My idol/hero, Rinpoche! hehe

    Thank you, Rinpoche!

  7. Junior on Dec 6, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Thank you for sharing this article.Welcome Jamyang to the aviary.

  8. Lucas Tan on Nov 7, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Jamyang is such a lively and active bird and can finally be free and fly freely without any restrictions.I wish that Jamyang can have long life and be closer to dharma in his next life!:D

  9. June Tang(KHJB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing this informative article! Rinpoche has great concern for animals, I can see Rinpoche shower to AKI and JAMYANG with lots of love and care . They are very fortunate to meet Rinpoche in this lives.

  10. Davin on Nov 5, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. I had no idea African Greys were so intelligent and so beautiful. Rinpoche’s compassion is not only to human beings but to all beings. I wish that Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest starting from Kechara Forest Retreat.

  11. grace (KHJB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Jamyang and Aki was so fortunate can meet up Rinpoche and adopted by him with full love and care.Hopefully more and more people can really take care and love the animals.

  12. Wah Ying on Nov 4, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    This article reminds me of Rio the movie. I know a little more about birds through this movie – which was a treat by Rinpoche to Kechara staffs.

    Rinpoche always educates us through many ways and skilful ways about compassion, with knowledge and education about other beings.

    Thanks Rinpoche for articles like this and etc, because with these teachings I become less ignorant and practice to be more compassion to others including birds and animals.

  13. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 3, 2012 at 11:51 am

    When Rinpoche adopt animal, he would not just adopt and put at Ladrang to keep, he will always go to the internet and search for more info re the animal so that we can understand the animal better and take care of them in the right way.

    Rinpoche’s compassion to human or animal are the same, he always make sure he will give the best to everyone, because for him, all lives are equal.

  14. tenzin llhamo on Nov 2, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Hehe… Jamyang looks so adorable. I have not heard a parrot having a conversation in real live before. Always see them on tv though. Maybe 1 day I will get to see Jamyang and see how smart he is… And thank you for the information about African Greys…

  15. Sean Wang on Nov 2, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Jamyang baby is so cute 🙂 I love intelligent animals like parrots. The sad thing is that when animals are shown to be intelligent, it reminds me that all animals are intelligent enough to feel pain and suffering as humans do. So, it increases my sorrow upon seeing animals getting abused or killed.

  16. wei theng on Nov 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Jamyang is so cute. I remembered Rinpoche told that we put Buddha images near the feeding bowl for the birds, it will create good imprints for the birds and animals. We can also pray that they will reborn as Dharma teachers in their next lives.

  17. Pastor Chia on Nov 1, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Thank you for sharing this article,Jamyang is adorable and beautiful. Ladrang team is taking good care of the aviary. Jamyang is one lucky bird save to join our big dharma family.

    At the future, Rinpoche also creating aviary at KFR and cabin for 5 mumus to stay, they are able close to the nature environment. KFR is created for all the sentient being will be bless by this holy place at the future.

  18. Tom Mellors on Nov 1, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Fascinating, I had no idea African Greys were so intelligent. It certainly is awful to imagine these wonderful birds living out their days in cramped cages. Interesting too that parrots and dogs can get along. I would love to see a parrot riding on a dog’s back!

  19. Han on Nov 1, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    I love this article, very informative and beneficial, especially to people with pets at home. Furthermore, Beng Kooi gave very good in depth informations on “Rinpoche gives all the animals in Ladrang Tibetan names to bless them.”
    Having pets with us can be our past life inclination with the animals ? We should well treat our pets and give equal love and care to all animals, they do not say thank you but they can be as loyal as man.

    Welcome Jamyang to the aviary, how fortunate of Jamyang !

  20. Louise Lee on Oct 31, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Jamyang baby is very clever! I meet Jamyang yesterday ! Joy non stop chanting Om Ah Ra Pa Tsa Na Dhi . Jamyang baby stay there and listen !

    So cute.

    Human and animals also need love.

  21. Uncle Eddie on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    I fully agree to what BK said and claimed that, “whatever animals Rinpoche rescued, are believed to have a closed connection to Rinpoche from a previous life.” And, as through BK’s past observations, it seems like every single one of these animals, Rinpoche takes extracare to ensure they are fine! True to what Dharma indicated and according to BK, when you take refuge, the Guru makes a commitment to guide you through till enlightenment. Even though you come back as an animal, wouldn’t the Guru out of true compassion not bless you with dharma seeds till you ready to return again in a more suitable form for more Dharma practices! Congrats and thank you for a well-researched explanation, BK! Om mani padme Hum.

  22. Li Kheng @ KFR on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:11 am

    Jamyang is super cute and friendly. As he spends more time in Rinpoche’s care, Jamyang is opening up more and more. We can hear Jamyang say “hello” to people who passes by.

    I was also told that our Kakak in the Ladrang really likes Jamyang and spends a lot of time talking to him. She taught him to call her “kakak” and this has become Jamyang’s second word 🙂

    Besides Jamyang, Rinpoche has a few other pets like the infamous Mumu and gang. All these animals are very special: they display a high level of EQ and IQ. As BK mentioned, I believe this stems from the love and care from Rinpoche.

    We should learn from Rinpoche to display care and love that is vital for the positive growth of all beings.

    • DR on Nov 5, 2012 at 1:14 pm

      Yes Jamyang is friendly. Even Gizmo likes him alot and always sits by Jamyang’s cage and just stares at him. Perhaps they were friends in their previous life. So cute. Such good karma Jamyang has, to be saved by Rinpoche. Hope he takes on a higher rebirth after this.

  23. Karen Chong on Oct 31, 2012 at 12:57 am

    I love Jamyang! He’s too cute. Everytime I walk pass the cage, Jamyang sure will greet me with hello! After reading the article above, now i know why my cockatoo at home keep plucking feather, I should give more attention and buy more toys to keep it entertained.

  24. Milly on Oct 31, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Jamyang and all the animals, birds, fishes, etc under Rinpoche’s care are so very blessed. They will be blessed by Rinpoche’s daily prayers and eventually have a good rebirth. I have seen birds settling down after Rinpoche blew mantras over them. So imagine how those pets in Rinpoche’s ladrang are benefiting daily.

    • Girlie Ooi on Nov 14, 2012 at 5:51 pm

      Yes, Milly not only are the birds, fishes, animals, etc are blessed. Everyone under Rinpoche’s care are blessed. Rinpoche’s love is for all beings. No discrimination. Period.

  25. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 30, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    I had the good honour to clean the aviary in Ladrang. During the course of cleaning the aviary I got to know a lovely African Grey Aki, he is so gentle and nice. I have fond memories of handling Aki :).

  26. AdelineTan on Oct 30, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Jamyang is so cute and lovable,i can see he is very friendly too with KB. Hope to meet Jamyang one day and hear him talk or say hello to me.I am very happy he has a good home now and well taken care of by Rinpoche.

  27. Cynthia Lee on Oct 29, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    If it’s true that the animals Rinpoche has saved has past lives connections, those who has taken refuge with Rinpoche is truly fortunate. I remember I was told the the reason why Rinpoche is so passionate about an animal sanctuary is because many of us will return as an animal in our next life. That knowledge is scary but nevertheless there are more opportunities for us naughty ones to have dharma seeds planted in us continuously.

    Rinpoche thinks way ahead and foresee what is required to help us in many ways. Let’s pray for the Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest starting from Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). Martin was sharing with us that the immediate plans for an aviary in the KFR will be nestled amongst the greens with one side of the aviary walled off by trees so that the birds are in their most natural habitat as possible. This will be completed very soon. 🙂

  28. Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 5:19 am

    I forgot to add that I have always felt that rinpoche doesn’t just rescue all the Ladrang animals on just a whim. I actually believe that every one of the permanent Ladrang animals (excluding those that are rescued and rehomed elsewhere) are actually those with connections to Rinpoche from a previous life.

    I have been with rinpoche during those times when rinpoche suddenly decides to bring a certain animal home. For instance, Dorje was chosen out of over a hundred koi in an aquarium/koi store. Yogi/Mumu was the “runt” of his litter, and was chosen after months of research about schnauzer. Drolkar was one of several cockatoos on the sidewalk of a bird store. And with every single one of these animals, rinpoche takes extra care to ensure they are fine.

    Proof of my theory? I know that Mumu was a monk in his previous life. Perhaps a naughty monk to come back in animal form but a monk nonetheless. If you spent time with him, Mumu is almost human. Dorje, the koi, is more like a dog than a koi. Drolkar is a traumatized cockatoo yet exceedingly gentle. Kadro and menlha are possibly the only tortoises that can climb fences that are 4ft high.

    Every one of Rinpoche’s animals is particularly different in temperament and character from their fellows. I see this as yet more proof that reincarnation is real. I mean, when you take refuge, the guru makes a commitment to guide you till enlightenment. So, if you come back as an animal, wouldn’t the guru keep you close and bless you I your current form with dharma seeds until you are ready to come back in another form more suited to dharma practice? Makes sense to me.

    • patsy on Nov 1, 2012 at 6:13 pm

      Yes BK it makes sense and reincarnation is real.

      Once we take refuge, our Guru will guide us till Enlightenment. In this life time, we are so fortunate to be born a human and to meet our Guru again. We may not be so fortunate in our next rebirth and may end up like all the animals that Rinpoche saved. Rinpoche did mention before that many of us will take rebirth as animals and if we do, I hope that we will be saved by Rinpoche and be taken care of in Kechara Animal Sanctuary. So it is important that in our present form, we support Rinpoche’s vision of Kechara Forest Retreat so that in the event we come back as animals we will have a more conducive environment to live in

    • wei theng on Nov 2, 2012 at 1:01 pm

      Very true BK & Patsy. We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche as our Guru. He takes care of us not just for this life but for our future lives too. Even if we will be born as animal, Rinpoche also has prepared a way for us to be closed to Dhama and him.

  29. Lucas Roth on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:37 am

    i hope jamyang has a great time in the avery and that he will always be happy no matter what. i hope jamyang has a very long and happy life

  30. Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:17 am

    Jamyang is short for Jampelyang, which is the Tibetan name for Manjushri. And Jamyang sure is one clever bird. He even says hello when he sees you across the room, so that you’ll go give him some attention.

    Rinpoche gives all the animals in Ladrang Tibetan names to bless them. For example, we have:
    – Oser (schnauzer) which means Clear Light. Short for the buddha Oserchenma or Marici
    – Dharma (schnauzer)
    – Yogi (schnauzer)
    – Kadro (tortoise) which means Dakini
    – Menlha (tortoise) which means Medicine Buddha
    – Drolkar (cockatoo) which means White Tara
    – Dechog (cockatoo) which means Heruka
    – Dorje (koi) which means vajra

    More recently, I was fortunate enough that Rinpoche named my adopted toy poodle “Norbu”, which means precious jewel. Well, she is a precious jewel alright (think Chenrezig) and ever since she came, we have secured many more jobs in the Captiv8 office (think Dzambala).

    In all seriousness, all these animals are very fortunate to have Rinpoche’s blessings. I sure hope that we can have an animal sanctuary soon, so that many more animals can benefit!

  31. Helena Chin on Oct 28, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    I’m glad Jamyang has well taken care of and he is very fortunate to meet Rinpoche, we all knows Rinpoche always rescue animals from pet shop. Thank you Rinpoche for the information about African Greys. They are very intelligent hehe.. For me I always encourage my friends to adopt animals instead of buying them from pet shop. There are so many animals out there whom need us to care and love them. So I hope all of us can encourage our friends to adopt instead of buying them.

  32. Julien Roth on Oct 28, 2012 at 4:40 am

    I love it that Jamyang has a new and better home. I hope he is having a god time withe the other birds inside the aviary. And i love te he picture when he is eating the carrot, i find it so cute. Rinpoche is very nice to adopt Jamyang from the pet store. I am glad the Rinpoche has done so.

  33. Sheryl KH (JB) on Oct 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    All kinds of animals who can get Rinpoche’s attention are the lucky ones. They are certain of abundant foods, toys and attentive cares from Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post on Jamyang. Jamyang is yet another lucky guy!

  34. choisheem on Oct 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    This is a very informative article. Jamyang is certainly very intelligent. It is so sad to read about all the animals in the pet shops being kept in such a poor condition. In general, I found out birds are not a popular choice of pets for most people here. After asking around a few people around me, most of them preferred to have puppies or even rabbits as their pets. Rinpoche is so compassionate to rescue these birds from the pet shops. I can’t imagine the fate of these animals that are not ‘sale able’. From this article, I have learnt so many interesting facts on this species of bird. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these facts with us.

  35. edward ooi on Oct 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Jamyang baby is so cute. He is so beautiful and smart. I remembered i was at Hevan, he said hello to me when I was going to KFR. So cute hehe.

  36. Natalie on Oct 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Dear Rinpoche
    This post reminded me of a documentary I saw not to long ago about how intelligent animals are. I was really surprised to see just how clever they are. There are some clips here of animals being really smart!

    This is really great news for having SFS campaign to help the stray dogs. Other than to urge and educate the public to treat the stray dogs with compassionately, SFS campaign encourages for all quarters to work together to spay or neuter stray animals which is an effective method to control the amount of stray dogs. Indirectly, this may reduce the suffering of stray dogs from being abused or die because of starvation.

    These iconographically correct Buddha images set in precious gemstones are one of its kind and unique in every sense of the word. And the designs are versatile to suit any apparels and occasions, redefining the Buddhist sense of fashion in a big way. Thank you, Rinpoche and Louise for this sharing. I hope the pendants will bring protections to the wearer and connections to the Buddha to those who admire it by sight.

    Very inspiring true story of a monk…Master Xuyun after going through many hardships and illness to pursue what he wanted to be. What he did was amazing travelling in harsh conditions to so many places just to preach chinese buddhism from one country to another. Master Xuyun has spent his entired life devoted to the Dharma,During the war many monasteries and holy sites was destroyed but somehow Master Xuyun managed to restore once again.Because of him ,those monasteries and holy sites were till today. He was a household name at that time and have inspired many modern spiritual seeker to strive along the path towards enlightenment.
    Thank you Pastor Adeline Woon for such an interesting and inspiring article.

    It is ironic that Dalai Lama would have given a remarks to discourage country such as Germany to accept refugees and that refugees should return to homeland and to build the country. I think this is really a callous statement to be mentioned. Dalai Lama being the Tibetan Buddhist leader should portray compassion and extending help to those in need. All these refugees are running away for their life because their own country is not safe to stay anymore. Just like what Tibetan has encountered in the late 1950s.

    This kind of contrary statement is also very obvious in the Dorje Shugden ban. Dorje Shugden have been practised by many high lamas since 400 years ago and also by Dalai Lama’s Guru but it is ban by Tibetan leadership.

    Dalai Lama is a high lama and is believed to be the emanation of Chenrezig. Although his statements were contrary sometimes but I believe he would have the reason that we may not understand yet. Hopefully all the issues would be resolve in peace.

    Wonderful good news to learn about this first of its kind progressive campaign to help the stray animals in Malaysia by the Sultan and Permaisuri of Selangor. While stray animals can be a nuisance to the public at large but bear in mind, the strays do not have a choice, and we have a role to play. Neutering strays is a humane and compassionate ways of resolving the program of stray animals in the long run because it largely reduces the numbers of strays on the streets. Neutering and proving proper shelters to strays can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized inhumanely. I have read somewhere that says spaying and neutering makes a big difference: Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!

    Humans and animals, as well as other sentient beings within the six realms of samsara, are subjected to the law of cyclic of existence. Karma or generally known as the law of cause and effect will determine where we take our next rebirth. It is extremely rare for sentient beings to take the form of a human body and in perfect condition. Hence we must not let this precious lifetime go to waste by indulging in silly actions and harmful ways. If we are born in the animals realms or lower, there is close to zero way for us to collect merits and get out of that realm.

    From the stories above, I find the story about Dalawong most unusual because he seemed to be able to determine the destination of his next rebirth after he was being killed as a snake. After he had taken rebirth in human form, he continued to remember the incident in his past life. Amazing!

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these researches with us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about tsa tsa. Didn’t know there are many steps and holy materials used in making a tsa tsa. In addition, the maker of tsa tsa would need to do prayer in the morning depending of what tsa tsa they are making on the day, for example, the maker will do Dorje Shugden practise before making Dorje Shugden tsa tsa.

    Only by knowing the process, we will appreciate the items more. Tsa tsa is a precious item.

    Dalawong: A Child Recalls a Past Life as a Cobra in Thailand

    This case was actually researched by the late Francis Story, a British citizen who was fascinated with Buddhism and spent many years in Asia. He was also very interested in the topic of reincarnation and assisted Dr. Stevenson in investigating a number of very important reincarnation cases in Burma and Sri Lanka. Francis interviewed the subject of this case, a Thai boy named Dalowong, along with his father, mother and sister. He also had access to a pamphlet that was previously published regarding the case, which was also summarized in an article in the Bangkok Times.

    Dalawong actually claimed two past animal incarnations. He recalled a past lifetime as a deer, which he said was killed by a hunter. Subsequently, he stated he was reincarnated as a snake, more specifically, as a cobra.

    As the snake, Dalawong remembered that he was in a cave when two dogs entered and attacked him. A ferocious struggle ensued between the cobra and the dogs. The owner of the dogs then entered the cave and killed the snake. Apparently, the snake was able to bite the human invader on the shoulder, prior to succumbing to death.

    The human took the cobra’s body back home, where the snake was cooked for a meal. This man shared the snake meat with an acquaintance, who would become Dalawong’s father in the near future. The man who killed the cobra had the name Mr. Hiew.

    The sculpture of Kuan Yin in Macau is simple but elegant. Most importantly, this big Kuan Yin in Macau is built to bring peace, harmony and prosperity to the people.

    I remember Rinpoche mentioned before a big Buddha statue will have positive impact on the environment and plant the Buddha’s seeds in all sentient beings that not only humans but also including animals and many others. Therefore, the bigger Buddha statue the more beneficial to all sentient beings where they can see and be blessed by this big Buddha statue from far.

    Krishnan’s effort and hard work in contributing to the society is very inspiring. He is willing to let go of his high paying job to Switzerland and staying back in India to operate a soup kitchen for homeless. On top of that he is willing to accept the hardship of financial restraint every month in maintaining his service for the people living in the street. I hope his good work will bring more awareness and sponsors for him especially when CNN showed the video of his work and awarded him with top 10 CNN heroes.

    According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

    Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

    Discover your traits according to the Mewa, or Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology below, and find out how to purify your negative karma to improve your life!

    Very interesting:


    Radin explained in his book: “For a Western-trained academic, the mere existence of, say, telepathy would be considered supernormal and thus wildly extraordinary. But for an experienced yogi, it’s just a boringly normal minor siddhi [a Sanskrit term for a meditation attainment, or power]. A skeptical scientist, not having the benefit of thousands of hours of practice in yoga and meditation, would require repeatable, rigorously obtained experimental data showing odds against chance of a gazillion to one. The yogi merely requires his own experience.”

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.

    Lia asked: If the ushnisha is actually supposed to be a bump, then do we change the visualization of the top knot and replace it with a bump covered in hair or do we keep the ushnisha as the thangkas show?

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your question, it is good to see you back and asking more questions. Yes you are right, there are differences in the tunes and chants between the lineages. The differences can vary significantly between the traditions, for example the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism is known for its extremely deep throat singing which is very powerful and is characterised by a low, booming voice, in contrast to the other traditions. Even within a particular tradition, there can be slight variations as to the manner in which the chants and tunes are performed. For example those monasteries are which are affiliated with Gyume will have one way of throat singing, where those affiliated with Gyuto will have another. As far as I am aware there is no professional sheet music for the rituals, most probably because the music is actually an integral part of the ritual itself. Therefore the music, tunes, and chants are all taught at the same time the ritual and prayers are. The tunes, and use of the instruments all have specific meanings, because they are considered to be offerings to the deities in the form of sound. The monasteries would not have copies of sheet music either, because sheet music is western practice. The use of ritual music within Tibetan Buddhism is more of one based on memory. In the Kechara organisation, the puja team was trained in such ritual instruments at the same time they learnt the particular ritual from monks from the monastery, such as the puja of Dorje Shugden. From what I saw of the training, the musical tunes, and use of instruments was not written down but taught experientially at the same time as the chanting. I have not come across any other instruments being used in pujas apart from the traditional ritual instruments, because even the instruments themselves have a specific meaning. That is not say that school instruments cannot be used. This is because, as long as the offering is sincere, the Buddhas and enlightened deities will accept it, and in turn you will generate great amounts of merit. Offerings should be made to the best of our ability, therefore if you do not have access to the ritual instruments, or do not know how to play them, but you know how to play other instruments, and use these instruments as offerings to the Buddhas during pujas, the amount of merit you generate will be the same. This is because you are sincere with your offering. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.
