I went to have pizza at FIRE AND ICE in Kathmandu and saw the KAT advert on the bulletin board. It interested me very much.

KAT centre in Kathmandu are doing such a wonderful job. When I was in Kathmandu, I have to drive by this place on the way to my Ladrang daily. I have a nice Ladrang in Nepal. So seeing this place really interested me along with the notice board in Fire and Ice… I asked some students to go and take a look. They returned and gave me a nice update. I wanted very much to see the place for myself. And I did.

Although abandoned, abused and starving, when rescued still sweet. Dogs have a huge capacity to forgive. When I extend my hand, so does this doggie. Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

I am looking at the dog pens which house sick dogs who are in for free treatment.

I’m in their office and being given a good introduction.

The founder of KAT Jan Salter on the left. She is so humble, gentle and caring. She sold everything she had years ago to start this place up. She with her team maintain KAT till today. Beautiful. She runs on a shoe string budget… help her. I beg you.

This lovely dog was rescued by them… very cute and happy doggie now. Safe and runs around KAT freely.

I asked them for their wish list… then I proceeded with a group to a local huge supermarket and purchased it and offered it to them.

I had the privilege to meet Ms Jan Salter and KAT’s wonderful hardworking staff… It was so exciting for me.

I found their signage too small and not clear. So I decided to sponsor a much more prominent signboard for them.  Those who drive by will have a better chance to see KAT.

The new signboards outside of KAT and along the main road… nice.

You can sponsor the holding pens for the sick dogs. Some dogs are very sick and vulnerable so they have to be isolated until healing. When healed, they run around free. These sick bays are very important. I sponsored one. My Kechara organization sponsored another… Please help. THEY REALLY NEED THE HELP.

Meet Ms Jan Salter, she is a WONDERFUL person. Very selfless.

I sponsored holding bay number 7 and Kechara sponsored number 6. What a pleasure and honor to do so.

This is the vehicle that drives around the city of Kathmandu to resuce dogs. I have come across some dogs in VERY BAD SHAPE … I called them and they came fast. I watched how they catch the frightened dogs and they are VERY PROFESSIONAL. THE DOGS ARE NOT HURT DURING THE CAPTURE AT ALL. So compassionate.

IMG_0090-(2)

They are so caring in how they catch the dogs. I was very happy.

They are very compassionate and gentle in catching very sick dogs… so nice to see.

IMG_0110-(2)

 These dogs were rescued when I called in to KAT. They came super fast although we were all the way in Patan and they in Narathan which is 45 mins away. I waited and guarded the dogs till KAT showed up… and showed up they did. Such nice people.

I was so happy that the dogs were going to out of pain.

Dogs getting treatment at KAT. So kind. so gentle.

Look at Mango, before treatment and after. Amazing… I met Mango at Kat, when I visited… Mango is adorable… and NOT IN PAIN ANYMORE. Now Mango is KAT’s Mascot.

CLICK ON THIS ABOVE VIDEO… Take a look at my visit there.

I enjoyed the visit and I know you will also. I had to hold back my tears so many times during my visit. The sufferings of the dogs wrench at my heart. The kind people helping them touched my heart. And to see a nice small dog centre in Kathmandu empowered my heart. There are thousands of stray suffering dogs in Kathmandu everywhere..it seems like a huge uphill climb to help… but it is better to start then just watch and do nothing.

The awareness of being kind to animals is just starting in Kathmandu, and KAT has contributed towards that. If you love animals, then help KAT as they need it very much.


 Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre http://www.katcentre.org.np/

Dear everyone, please contact KAT and give them a helping hand. If you are going to Kathmandu, please allow time to go and help. Go and volunteer. Raise some funds before you go and donate. They run on donations alone. Hundreds of abused, neglected and sick dogs need your kind help. Please help.

Call them ahead and see what they need. They often need medicines for the dogs that are not easily available in Kathmandu.

Sometimes things run slow, or admin is a little slow in response as they are understaffed… so be kind and help them. Be patient as things in Kathmandu run differently, but they get things done nevertheless.

My prayers and thanks, Tsem Rinpoche

Cute doggie gets a new toy from me, while in temporary isolation for treatment.

Jan and I… she’s wonderful.

Dogs under treatment rescued off the abusive streets of Kathmandu.

Love animals, love sentient beings, love the planet, love your family, love your enemies, love everyone before it is too late to love.

Never eat animals. It causes tremendous pain to them and you eventually to eat them.

Go vegetarian and help animals always. Don’t say you don’t have money to help. You have money to buy meat and eat meat??


[The Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre (KAT Centre) was first conceived after Jan Salter, the founder of KAT, went to visit ’Help in Suffering’ (HIS) in Jaipur, India. Impressed with the way HIS had managed the difficult dog problem in Jaipur by implementing Animal Birth Control and Anti-rabies programmes, creating a rabies free dog friendly city, Jan came back to Nepal convinced that what had been achieved in Jaipur could also be done in Kathmandu. The foundation was registered as non-profit, charitable animal welfare organisation in June 2003 and was formally opened on 9th May 2004.

Jan Salter, Founder
Originally from the UK, Jan now feels that Nepal is her second home and lives for much of the time in Kathmandu with a family of rescued cats and dogs. Since 1975 she has been painting Nepali people and has had many exhibitions of her portrait series ‘Faces of Nepal’. In 1997 she was decorated with the ’Gorkha Dakshin Bahu’ by the then Nepalese king, Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev. She has worked with the organisation ’Maiti Nepal’ and has produced a series of paintings on the subject of girl trafficking. She is also a support member for organisations concerned with homeless women and mentally disturbed people. In 2004 she started the KAT centre and is the chief motivator in all its activities.-

    It is amazing what Jan Salter, a foreigner in Kathmandu, had done to help the strays and helpless animals on the street. It goes to show that when we have compassion and kindness in our heart, we will be able to see the pain and suffering of others regardless of the environment the sufferer is in. Just because the sick dogs are roaming the dirty and unkept streets of Kathmandu doesn’t make their pain less or their plight better. Therefore, there is no confinement to where and how we can exercise and practice compassion. Thank you very much, Rinpoche, for this sharing that opens my eyes to the true meaning of being compassionate.

  2. Samfoonheei on May 31, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Jan Salter,founder of Kathmandu animal treatment center was a wonderful ,compassion and generous lady with a heart of gold.She used all her savings to build such a center for abandon,abused and sick dogs away in a foreign land.A numberous of animals saved and was under her care with other volunteers to help her.
    Rinpoche was there and had the plesure to sponsor a kennel and so as Kechara.
    Jan not only rescued cats and dogs ,she is good in painting too.She even produced paintings on the subject of girl trafficking.She is indeed a hero to many and inspired many people then.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring lady.

  3. sandra on Mar 26, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    These are very heartwarming examples of Rinpoche’s and Ms. Salter’s generosity.I am pleased to see more animal rescue centres rise in KTM because the states of the street dogs can be very appalling and sad. Kudos.

  4. jennifer on Feb 20, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    When i was in Nepal 2 years ago, Jamie took me to The KAT centre, and i was so very touched by the kindness and love the staff showed to the dogs and cats that they rescued and treated.

    I met many adorable dogs there and had the pleasure of meeting Mango too!!. These dogs are very friendly and i’m sure that it’s through the love and affectation that Jan and her staff have shown to the animals that these doggies trusted man. They would come up to us , wagging their tails, with a big wide smile in their faces and i just couldn’t resist, but to sit on the ground and had big hugs and cuddles with them. What joy to know that they are well and happy.

    I went back a second time , just before we flew back, to sponsor a little doggie who had severe nerve problems and she would just tremble and shiver very badly and couldn’t walk much. Yet she would rush up to us as fast as she can and greet us. Her name was Kancu, and the vet at the KAT centre informed us last year that she had passed away peacefully. I know she was well looked after and at least in her last few years of her life, she was loved.

    The centre do need a lot of sponsorship so please do help them.

  5. beatrix ooi on Feb 6, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    The dogs are so blessed to have met Jan. She’s truly a loving lady. I feel so happy for the doggies. Not much human beings can do what she does, included me. I really admire her, she has a very kind heart. May she lives a long and healthy life.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  6. Jutika on Jan 20, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Congratulations to Jan of KAT!!! She is really a true hero, even though she did not have the best of the best facilities she still tries her best to give the animals in her shelter. I find her story very inspiring because the fact that she does not even have enough money for a bigger sign but yet she still strife’s to give her at what she does.

    Honestly most of our animal shelters here have lots of money and resources but yet they still don’t take care of their Shelters.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing about this Hero!!!

  7. Milly on Dec 23, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Ms Jan is a great lady! I admire her compassion and generosity in setting up KAT with her personal funds. Its sad there are so many sickly and undernourished dogs in every country. If we are able to educate the people on neutering and responsibility in not abandoning their pets when they are old and sickly, some of these problems can be reduced. I pray that more people will come forward to offer assistance in any form to all animal shelter homes. These wonderful people are doing so much out of love and compassion for other suffering sentient beings.

  8. Julien Roth on Oct 24, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    This is touching, these people just go around the city helping dogs. I wish i could do that. Its fun, and at the same time, you helping animals. Your giving them a home, your giving them food and water and you are also giving them the best thing you can give to a dog, LOVE. This is the most important thing that you can give to a dog. With love, you automatically show care, and with care, you provide them with food, water and a home to stay in.

    So please show love to animals. Thank you for sharing this Rinpoche, i really enjoyed reading about this.

  9. verontung on Aug 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    This is such a selfless tributes. Jan & KAT are doing excellent work!
    Hope soon that we could have such place with nice people for all the stray animals in KL…
    we should…

    Thanks rinpoche!

  10. Lim KH (JB) on Jul 10, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Rinpoche always show us to care for all sentient beings whenever and wherever we go. Rinpoche also sponsor to make the sign board bigger so the peoples all around can be more aware for that. Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing, you are always care and generosity.

  11. Helena Chin on Jul 9, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Compassion and kindness knows no barrier. No matter where you are you can always help.
    Great to see KAT is helping and taking good care of the dogs. By reading this post Jan Salter is truly a hero of many. Her compassion helps so many others. Thank you Rinpoche for the post. I will help to past the message of helping KAT.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 2, 2012 at 4:13 am

    Dogs have so much resilience I feel but should we max out their spirit and endurance by treating them badly and cruelly. A dog is a well spring of positivity and such a joy to have a dog who welcomes you home. So Sweet these animals are how can we hurt them or even eat them.

  13. ugyen wangmo on Jun 28, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you so much for sharing so many wonderful pages…You are soo inspiring…..
    thank you so much……….

    Dear Jan,
    I am very much inspired by the decision you have taken in your life. Its rare to find a person who is so compassionate to animals who cannot say thank u and return the favour you have done. i am so moved and inspired as well as happy to know that such person really exist in this world.You are really doing a wonderful thing and you are my source of inspiration in the walk of my life.
    Thank you beyond and Earth and Sky…..

  14. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 27, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Jan is one of the few great people in this world that has chosen to give up what she owns and give them out to many others who she cares for.

    This is a stage that not many people can achieve, because the societal norm is that we need to accumulate as much as possible to ensure our own assistance.

    In this incidence, I see yet another example of compassion of Rinpoche…everywhere that he goes, there will be footsteps of Tsem Rinpoche’s compassion.

  15. grace (KSJC) on Jun 25, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Jan is great heroies to set up KAT to show her care towards animals. it is good example to us all being equal and should be well treated.

  16. nani ksa on Jun 22, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    i am happy to take care animal.and happy in nepal news about animal.

  17. Carmen on Jun 17, 2012 at 12:14 am

    Running on donations and sponsors alone, it must be hard for a, or any shelter to survive. But no matter what, the people at KAT are passionate and driven therefore the centre succeeds. I believe it is because when things don’t work, they find a way to make things work. KAT looks really nice, and well taken care of. The hedges are well trimmed and neat, the place looks well kept and clean.

    Keep it up, KAT!

  18. PhillisChin on Jun 16, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    I AM TOTALLY SPEECHLESS what Miss Jan Salter and Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre have done……………………
    Please go for adopt guys!!!

    • PhillisChin on Jun 16, 2012 at 6:18 pm

      I speechless is because …………. I never seen such a compassionate (with sincerity heart)Animal Centre in Kuala Lumpur. Im not saying they are bad and not compassionate, perhaps, some are not “That” sincere..

      Thank You Rinpoche to let us know the condition of KAT. Thank You…..

  19. pat on Jun 15, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post…and to Ms Jan and all the workers at KAT my deepest respect for your kindness and compassion…….you make us realized how totally helpless animals are and they deserved the rights to live well and happy like any other living beings.

  20. philyong on Jun 12, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Dear Jan and the whole of KAT centre,

    Your work has inspired many! Please keep up the good work! I was in Nepal last year and drove past your centre but due to lack of time we did not drop by. But through Rinpoche, I have read about the good works of you guys!

    What you guys do there is a great example for all around the world. Thank you!!

  21. Adrian chow on Jun 12, 2012 at 3:56 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing a story about this wonderful and brave lady who founded KAT and she gave up almost everything in England and came to Kathmandu for her care of the lives of the unwanted animals by the society.
    Ms. Jan is truly one of the inspiring figure of today. Thank you so much for your selflessness.

  22. Pastor Susan on Jun 10, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    I got the opportunity to visit KAT and it was a very happy day for me. Rinpoche and Kechara contributed what we could. One of the things that makes me very happy is seeing animals taken care of. It gives me hope that there are humans who uses their capabilities for a higher purpose, to care for those less fortunate than them. I wish Jan and her team well and may they always have more than enough to fulfill their most beneficial work. Please support KAT!

  23. DR on Jun 5, 2012 at 8:45 am

    As Buddhists, we are taught to serve all sentient beings. Serving animals is one of the best ways to develop empathy as the animals can not say thank you or return a favour (as in the case of serving humans). You can not expect anything in return. It must be very tough for Miss Jan’s work, as she is in a country where even humans are fighting for a living. My prayers and thoughts with Miss Jan. May you always find the resources you require to carry on your good work.

  24. Li Kheng on May 29, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    Go Jan! Go KAT!

    The journey to bring salvation to others is one that is challenging and long. Therefore, “angels” like Jan and her team who offers kindness and sanctuary to these beings are like rare jewels. They chose the harder path to benefit others. However, from the results in the images shared here, it is clear that the “harder” path bears great benefits…which eventually brings greater joy as seen in the faces and eyes of the KAT team members.

    Rinpoche’s description of the way the KAT Team works shows that they care about what they do. It shows that they take pride in what they do. I believe this work attitude is getting rare, even for high-salary earning individuals in cushy jobs, as we complain about our jobs more and more these days.

    Perhaps this should prompt us to reflect on how we spend our life. Not that we should change jobs…not at all. Reflection is on why we dedicate so much of our life on a job we claim to dislike…what can we do to make our jobs more meaningful and beneficial to a wider scope of people so that we find true value in our days.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post. I will forward it to more friends so that awareness and hopefully action can manifest to further contribute to KAT’s and Jan’s cause.

  25. Victor Phang on May 28, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    A very good example of selflessness and compassion in action. Jan Salter’s great love and kindness save numberless of lives. She is a wonderful woman who let go her comfortable life in UK and built a “new hope” center for stray dogs. We need more people like her in this planet.

    Before I came to Kechara, I thought I’m a great person because I’m doing well in work, have good career, many people praised me but after reading more and more updates from Rinpoche’s blog about the great stories of selfless persons, I realized I’m no body, nothing great about myself anymore.

    They are so many great peoples out there working tremendously hard to minimum and eliminate others’ suffuring whereas what I did previously was being selfish to gain all kind of meaningless attachments which indirectly increased others’ suffering. Now I’m really shame on what I had done last time.

    Thank you Rinpoche and sponsors for giving us Kechara Hospital and provide FREE treatment to sick people like me.

    Take good care and thank you for sharng.
    With love,
    VP

  26. Irene Lim on May 25, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Truly a hero Jan Salter! Compassion in Action.

  27. jamiekhoo on May 23, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Hi everyone,
    I had the fortune of being with Rinpoche when we went out to visit Jan Salter. We also visited a few more times after that to help them set up their signboard. On subsequent trips back to Nepal, some of our friends (and myself and my parents) have also been back to visit the good people working at the center, and to see the lovely dogs of course.

    There is even less consciousness about animal welfare in Nepal than there is here and the difficulties that Jan experienced as she was setting this center up were plenty, as I’m sure you can imagine. She is a foreign lady living in Kathmandu, with little knowledge of the language, but she has still been able to set all this up with the support of a few loyal local Nepalese. KAT have since been able to acquire their own piece of land and are now raising funds to build their own permanent place (this current center is on land that is leased to them).

    From Jan’s efforts, many other foreign people come to Nepal to volunteer their time and help with the center. Young people often take time out from their work or studies to spend a year or a few months in the year to assist. They need help not just with looking after the dogs, but also with the administrative aspects of the center and promotional works. I think they’re doing very well considering they have a fairly small team. There’s more information about their work and the rescue cases on their own website here: http://www.katcentre.org.np/

    Lots of wonderful success stories of animals who are on the verge of death, and then given a new lease of life. The dogs there are really very happy – those who have recovered from surgeries and are assimilated into the area, are allowed to roam free on the grounds, sunbathe and go around for cuddles with the staff there.

    If anyone visits Kathmandu, it’s really worth paying a visit to the center. They are along a main road leading up to the Naranthan temple – you’ll see the signboard quite clearly (which was arrange and sponsored by Rinpoche!). Do look out for Jan Salter and tell her you’re from Kechara 🙂

  28. Uncle Eddie on May 23, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    As mother Teresa has once said, “The greatest diesease is not TB or Lebrosy. It is being unwanted, uncared for and unloved.” Ms Jan Salter is perhaps another Mother Teresa in the making. Not being satisfied with being an active support-member for Organisations concerned with homeless women and mentally disturbed people, she sold whatever she has, and came over from UK to officially open this philantrophic non-profit charitable Animal Treatment Centre at Kathmandu, diligently running it herself with a few kind-hearted people. Not only it’s “KAT” that is attracting attention today, but also “Mango” the cute lovable doggie which Jan has, with so much care, love and compassion nursed it plus so many others back to their original status, healthy, attractive and lovely to look at! You are really a “Special Angel” Jan Salter!!!

  29. henry ooi on May 23, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Ms Jan is one of the many people who sets good examples and inspires others to do the same for homeless and left behind animals. Keep up the good work!

    Kechara will also have its Animal Sanctuary when Kechara Forest Retreat is up.

  30. su an on May 23, 2012 at 10:05 am

    Dear Jan, you are a gem! How many of us would leave the comfort of our homes and go to a foreign country (and one that is much less developed than your own mother country) to make it their lifelong mission to help animals off the streets? And like what Rinpoche said in the video, this kind of “work” would receive more criticism than support in the beginning. However definitely in another few more generations, people’s mindset will change and a good thing will grow to become better and best. Thank you Jan for persevering and moving others to join your cause through your sincerity. Your website is well done too, very easy to navigate and straight to the points.

    What Rinpoche said rings very true for anyone who is starting and running a charity to take to heart, “you have to know yourself, what you want to do, what you want to focus on, then it doesnt matter what others say.”

    It is always great to know somewhere out there, someone so selfless and compassion like Jan to save beings. I respect the way she shower her love and care for animals. I am amazed with Mango’s before and after, really amazing. Frankly, I have come across very cruel act on animals before. It really torned my heart apart. I believe we can always help others..be it reciting mantra, being vegetarian or collecting funds for the centre. A little effort put in really can make a lot of changes. The motivation counts and our actions count, we just have to start and do it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us. Take good care.

    Words cannot describe enough the effort that Ms Jan Salter and her KAT team had done for the dogs in Kathmandu. How very caring and compassionate! These dogs are very lucky to have found you! They now have a chance to at least enjoy the safety of a home and not subject to hunger, sickness, and dangers of life on the streets alone …

    Thank You Ms Jan and KAT. Please continue the good work!

    Dear TR,

    Thanks for sharing KAT news with us. After watching this post, it show us how much a person can do. I believe it’s not easy at all for Jan to started this animal care in Kathmandu, she doesn’t know anyone there, but she find her to do all this for animal in that area. They best thing i find about her is, she’s not only care of people, but to her animal and human have the same right to better or to be happy.

    With the determination and her kind heart for others, this is what one can do. If I have a chance to visit Kathmandu again, I will definitely visit this place again. We just need to cut down on one or two meals or buy less souvenir and use the money to donate to them, things can be better for KAT.

    If we really can’t sponsor anything for KAT, we can just take up vegetarian vows (short/long term) and dedicate the merits for all the animal in KAT to have a good rebirth and clear obstacles for KAT to get more resources, this is another way to benefit them too.

    You might think by being a vegetarian will not bring any good result to KTM or the animal reside there, but by being a meat eater, definitely will bring harm to animal and this is totally against the principal of KAT. Jan is alone, please help her in anyway we can.

    watch the video below, they are on the way to death

    start vegetarian today and it help KAT wherever you are.

    I salute to Jan’s dedication and he bold step in selling everything she has and setting up KAT, living in a different environment and culture. I salute her passion for animals and her kindness towards beings who could not repay her kindness.

    I had the opportunity to visit KAT in 2010 with a group of Kecharians who went for a pilgrimage in Nepal. KAT is very well kept and the dogs look very happy and active. The staff are all very friendly and took us on a tour of their facility. They also briefed us on how their facility helps in the saving injured dogs in the community. They would also return dogs back into the community after they are all healed as they belong to the people there. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet Janas she was not there. But, they remember Rinpoche and Kechara.

    I also met Mango, the dog. He is so cute and looks like a mop!

  36. Seng Aun on May 22, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I’m very touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity. You are so quick to act, whenever you come across the poor and suffering. Only someone with a Buddha’s heart is capable of such a noble deed.

    May you always have the blessings of all the Buddhas and all your aspirations be free from obstacles. The same to Ms Salter, who is so selfless, kind and compassionate.

    With folded hands,
    Om Mani Peme Hung…….

    Hi Jan, hope you are reading all the wonderful posts here. I am not surprised so many have been touched and moved by you and your centre’s kind and compassionate activities to improve the lives of cats and dogs. I , too , am inspired . I also do my own small bit for animals. I rejoice that you have a kind heart and tenacity to do so much in animal care work by establishing KAT in Kathmandu where conditions can be appalling and daunting for most.Your deeds will make the Buddhas smile. Rinpoche’s visit and support for your centre is testament of your good work.

  38. KH Ng on May 22, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    Jan is truly altruistic. To give up all she had and set up and run KAT is the result of this kind of mind. We have a lot to learn from her and she needs and deserve our support.

    May I ask how much does it take to sponsor one holding bay? We can organize a drive to help KAT.

    • Judy Lam on Jun 25, 2012 at 4:49 pm

      Jan is like the Florence Nightingale to the homeless dogs! Very kind and compassionate lady. NOt many people will give up everything to set up a home for stray dogs in a foreign land. Her capability to love animals is greater than her own self-interest. Kudos Jan.

  39. patsy on May 22, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Ms Jan Salter, you are such an amazing lady. How many of us are willing to sacrifice our comfort zone and compassionately save and take are of all these sick, abused, abandoned animals. You have done a great job and worked tirelessly and selflessly for all these animals. If these animals can speak, they will say “thank you” to you for the love and care you have given them.

  40. nicholas on May 22, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    What a great job! Thank to KAT for being passionate to help the dogs. Ms Jan indeed is a wonderful person. She sold everything she had to start KAT, truly angel! With her compassion towards animals that create the cause of hope to the dogs there. Seeing the improvement of Manggo it proven the care she gave and how KAT able help and more help needed for KAT in order to help more dogs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and Rinpoche always compassionate towards all being and Rinpoche sponsorship towards KAT is a great example for others to follow and it’s not easy to change people mind set. People might think it’s a waste of time caring animals but I believe Jan will continue to make a different and create the awareness. It could take a few generation but creating the cause now will make a better future for the upcoming generation.

  41. Lim Han Nee on May 22, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for directing us from your Blog chat to this post.

    Jan Salter overwhelms me by her vision, courage and great strength of purpose.To start an animal shelter in Kathmandu, where the awareness of kindness and care for animals just wasn’t there, is a daunting task. But Jan did it. With little funds(she cashed out all that she had to start this center)but overweening love and compassion, she got going.

    Today(5 years later), the KAT center that she has set up is thriving, with a team of very caring and committed staff.

    There are two things that Rinpoche said that I noted. One is when you start to pioneer a project, in your lifetime you will get no recognition or support.( But you don’t start a tremendously beneficial project like this with a view of getting recognition. Jan is an unsung heroine and chooses to remain that way). Nonetheless, someone must pioneer it. Then over many generations it will grow into a big community project as awareness will surely grow and balloon.

    The second thing is that Rinpoche said that it was more difficult for Jan to start an animal shelter in Kathmandu, Nepal, than it would be for us in KL, Malaysia, to start such a shelter.Strays are usually picked up from the streets here by authorities(who unfortunately are also destroying them if they are not claimed or adopted). We also need to change the mentalities of self-centred Malaysians, who just buy animals from pet shops, treat them as playthings and when these pets get out of control(as they grow bigger) return them to the pet shops, which will mostly eventually destroy these unwanted ex-pets.

    So we need to have our own KAT here.

  42. yoke fui on May 22, 2012 at 11:51 am

    Dear Ms Jan,
    Thank you for taking care and loving these abandoned animals in Kathmandu. You and your team are doing a wonderful “job”.I put job in ” ” because it is NOT a job to you. It is your passion and life mission, and you are showing an inspiring example to people around the world.

    Please extend my heartfelt appreciation to your staff and volunteers.

    Sincerely,
    Yoke Fui

    It was so amazing to see Mango before and after the care and love given by Jan and her team at KAT. There a lots of care, patience, endurance that is all behind the scenes. Kudos to KAT!

  45. sweekeong on May 22, 2012 at 11:41 am

    It is very heart wrenching when I see dogs on the street. When I look at the dogs’ eyes, I feel they are suffering in silent.

  46. Siong Woan on May 22, 2012 at 11:24 am

    The pictures of lucky dogs before and after treatment in KAT really hit me to the core! Thats the difference a kind soul can make to another! Ms Jan Salter is definitely an angel to the animals.

  47. wahying on May 22, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Seeing Mango’s before and after, it’s so warm! Thanks to KAT and Jan Salter, with you all there will be less poor dogs without food and a shelter, more dogs with love and care!

  48. Doris on May 22, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Jan is a very loving and selfless person. She is really someone we should look up to. She decided to leave her comfort zone into helping the much less fortunate sentient beings. Ask ourselves, are we able to leave our comfort zone? Do we have the courage? Do we have the drive? We let our fear and greed to control us. We tell ourselves we cannot do this, we can never do something like this because we choose not to.

    We should also stop buying pets, the breeders will never stop mating the pets if we keep demanding for pure breed. What will happen to the male pet once bred? They will be abandoned, left alone in the cold with no food and shelter waiting for their time to die. We must put a halt to this. Free the pets from sufferings. Practise adoption. Educate your family and friends. You can too help in making a difference. It only takes one to initiate all.

  49. Don Buchwalter on May 22, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Jan, you and the staff, are doing excellent work! Please keep it up!

  50. lewkwanleng on Sep 15, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    It always amaze me how much a person would do for animals. This lady sold everything she had to start a shelter for the animals. This is an act of generosity and compassionate.

    Being kind to animals is more “difficult” than human, because animals cannot say thank you back to us. However, because of this, Rinpoche said we should be kind to animals because they cannot say thank you and give gifts back to us, we will be kind of them without any agenda. This is such a good way to develop alturism!!

  51. THL on Mar 16, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Rescuing animals from the streets of Kathmandu and taking them to safety and better health is really important. Regarding one of the many ways they help animals, KAT’s website gives the following information:

    How far your money goes

    Help vaccinate a street/community dog

    US$ 1 / NRs 75

    We give an anti-rabies vaccination to every dog and cat passing through our sterilization and rescue program. In Nepal, more than 200 people die of rabies cases each year. Rabies vaccines are not expensive – for every US$ 20 donated, we can vaccinate 20 animals!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The dog is protected from rabies and humans are protected from rabies and for such a cheap price. I was happy to sponsor 40 injections. You can give by a variety of methods, including Paypal, here:

    http://www.katcentre.org.np/help/donate.html

    Compassion can give a person strength to do much wonderful things; what more precious Bodhicitta, but not just ‘talk’ Bodhicitta.

    Jan Salter is truly the hero and saving beings in Kathmandu. Rinpoche has a Kechara Lounge and a Ladrang in Kathmandu. while he was there in one his visits he happen to visit an animal dog shelter for abandoned sick dogs. The finding of abandoned sick dogs is much easier to find in Katmandu as no one will care to catch them. As in Malaysia you can rarely find stray dogs on the street. The authorities will round them up and put them to sleep. In Kathmandu Rinpoche has become a life member of KAT and also sponsored two sick bays for the shelter. One is sponsored by him and the other by Kechara Orgaisation. The Animal Sanctuary which Rinpoche plans to start will be similar to KAT and will be Kechara’s 13th department.

    Every religion or spiritual path has supporters and detractors. But when we talk about the animals, every religion should have the same thought and practice empathy toward animals. This is because animals are helpless and human should help them and not mistreat or harm them due to selfishness.

    Now, there are so many evidence indicates that Jesus was a vegetarian and kind to animals. Jesus even asked the fishermen to quit their occupation in order to stop killing the animals but to show mercy to all beings. Since Jesus showed his kindness toward animals, the followers should listen to the advice of Jesus and be kind to animals too.

    The Himalayan region is the home to the Yeti legend, where expeditions from around the world congrue for an up-close encounter with the elusive creature! Tales and witnesses from the monasteries and local villages around the region have kept the legend alive for many decades. I hope there will be more interesting documentary about Yeti or Snowman and the mystery can finally be unveiled. Thank you for this sharing.

    I think this is one of the footages that is visibly clear. The posture of the snowman can be seen walking like a human but slightly bending forward; it gives the impression that this creature is ever ready to use the upper limbs on the ground anytime. Thank you for sharing.

    Having about 20 pounds of poison in our colon is no joke . I am glad I came across this wonderful post with good guidelines for us. To live healthy ,we must take note of what we eat. Eating processed foods filled with chemicals, and preservatives without realising that it is harmful . Its important to remove some of these toxins from our body . Choose to go on vegetarian , eat healthy and stays healthy.

    Bhutan is one of the unexplored country in the world. The Yeti is a legendary creature of the snow-covered Himalayas. Numerous sightings have been reported and many footprints have been spotted, Over the years. Most of the evidence of the Yeti comes from sightings and reports including high Lamas who also saw it. Incredible , an 18 th Century scripture at the Nation Library showed that Its true enough to be a Yeti found in the remote mountain of Bhutan. Generation after generation for hundreds of years ,in the scripture its a yeti as stated. Many scientist travelled to Bhutan searching for the Yeti, yet the existence of the Yeti remains unproven. There is no hard evidence of the existence. But i do believe it does exist in Bhutan.

    In our spiritual path there is always a Guru to guide us and lead us to enlightenment. If there is no Guru then there is no Dharma. We have a chance to learn and practice Dharma is all because of our Guru Rinpoche’s compassion and kindness . Rinpoche is very devoted to his root Guru, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche . Its very important to choose a Guru knowing the lineage of the Guru and so as Guru devotion. I am fortunate to have met Rinpoche through Kechara and I have still a lot more to learn and practice Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these profound teaching.

    Yeti or Bigfoot remains one of nature biggest mysteries. Do they exist or do they not exist? People can debate on and on about the possibilities of an alternative creature like bear or ape. Unfortunately there is no concrete empirical proof that they exist. To people who are more familiar with the Himalayan tales, the Yeti remains an elusive being who roam the snow mountains, guarding the precious pure land from being exploit by modern people. Perhaps that’s why Yeti remains hidden, being exposed would be leading the modern world to their sacred place. Thank you for this sharing.

    Very touching…….all animals have feeling and emotion like us human. Loosing a mate is hard to bear we can see from the pictures of the love birds. Feeling sad for that bird who has lost his mate and standing by the mate side showing how much love and compassion for her. A lesson to learn from here….We should treat all sentient beings with love and compassion. Never hurt and abuse them. Give them love and care. All sentient beings have feeling and emotional for each other ,

    Truly touching a mother’s love while breastfeeding her own child on one breast and the other feeding an animal. Could not believe what I saw ….is weird but second thought its touching . Words are not enough to express the unconditional love that exists between a mother and that baby animal. I have heard of babies been fed by cows or sheep when mother could not have enough milk for their babies but not the other way. It can chance someone’s life forever ,when we are generous in giving nor matter small.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wendy for sharing this. A teaching of giving unconditional love, compassion to all sentient beings.

    Unbelievable just for the sake of making money they did that . Its cruel and un human ……putting live tiny animals in what ever they called as key chains. It seem vendors in China have been selling live animal key chains for years. Small fish, turtles and others are being sold. How could this allow to happen. Hope the authority concerned could ban the sales of such key chain which abusing living thing. The little animals are suspended in brightly coloured liquid, often along with beads and other decorations…….feeling sad and angry with the inventor of such products for sales.

    Animals definitely have feeling and can feel pain just like human. But because human’s consumption is so high many chicken do not have long life and has to endure so much suffering and to be killed. Human should stop eating meat to stop the further killing on animals.

    It is very interesting that the haunting at The New Inn is quite serious that people who were present at the moment witnessed paranormal sights. Unseen beings are part of almost every culture known on earth, being more feared in some than others. Therefore, it is amazing to see that people in the UK are not that fearsome of the unseen, as most of the people in the eastern culture don’t view the unseen beings as amusing.

    The burning times showed a single-minded and uncompromising campaign against a group of people labelled as witches, who are classified as having unacceptable views or behaviour, possess the ability of witchcraft. The “witches” or anyone found or believed to be witches will be subjected to unfair or malicious persecution. It is proof that humans are truly capable of such injustice and blasphemous judgement, playing God all the time.

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.

Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

    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

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity.
