Leo the Lion-Hearted

Leo Saves four kittens

On 27 October 2008, an Australian family of 7 were seen to be running away from a burning house with a dog… while their other dog refused to leave.

The dog was a Jack Russell Cross named “Leo” who remained in the burning Melbourne house. The family didn’t have a fire alarm installed, but was warned by a stranger who saw that the front of their house was engulfed in flames.

When the fire brigade arrived, a fireman rushed into the house thinking that there was still a person missing. The children were also screaming for their pets to be saved. The fireman dodged fallen power lines to enter a house filled with thick black smoke. When he entered the house, he saw Leo the Jack Russell guarding a box of 4 kittens!!

The mother of the litter of kittens was no where to be found… however, Leo laid unconscious and not breathing next to the them. Luckily, they were all removed from the house, although suffering from smoke inhalation. The firemen attempted to revive Leo with an oxygen mask and heart massages… and they successfully managed to!

Leo made no distinctions between who should or should not be saved. He knew that the kittens were helpless and he remained loyally next to them… even if it meant losing his life. Without him, the fireman’s attention would never have been drawn towards the 4 kittens who were in a closed box.

Do watch the video of the Jack Russell cross who is a civic hero. The firemen have given him a newly earned nickname “Smoky” hehe.

    This is such a heartwarming article! Leo was really a hero, he was willing to sacrifice his own life to guard the four kittens whom had nothing to do with him. This shows that animals DO have feeling towards each other, no matter what they breed. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  2. Jutika Lam on May 26, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    OMB!!!! What a touching story!

    First of all I am just so glad that the family was not really hurt…

    But what I am really glad of is that thanks to Leo 4 newborn and cute kittens were saved.

    It’s amazing how smart dogs are these day to do so many life saving actions that when upon people hearing that a dog had saved 4 kittens many of us won’t believe/expect a dog to do so.

    looks like Leo is not just lion hearted but also a animal Hero!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

    Nice job Leo! this do is truly kind and protecting… i love him! i am so glad he survived. : D. he is so giving that he would give his life to protect others.

  4. Julien Roth on Nov 20, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    This shows how loyal dogs are, and not just towards people but other animals as well. Like when Leo risked his life in a burning house to protect 4 new born kittens. This is amazing, i never taught that a dog would risk their life for kittens. I dont think any other animal in the world could do the same as what Leo has done in this story.

  5. edward ooi on Nov 16, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Leo in a compassionate and caring dog.Leo risk its own life to save the four new born kittens. But luckily he was revived by the pure oxygen from the oxygen tank. The kittens mother left the kittens but Leo decided to save the kittens life by using its own life. This is a very touching news.

  6. beatrix ooi on Nov 16, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    This is an amazing post to read. Leo is such a brave dog. He even willing to sacrifice his own life to protect the kittens even though it’s not his own pups. He has proved to us that animals do care for each other. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  7. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    While we tend to think that animals have no brains, they actually do. It is just that they cannot speak.

    While humans ran away from fire, Leo stayed in the smoky house until he was unconscious with the sole intention to want to save animals of another breed.

    It seems that human needs to learn qualities that we are gradually losing,…..from animals.

    • Wan Wai Meng on Aug 5, 2012 at 11:15 pm

      Wonderful selfless behaviour by animals. And this dog obviously was not trained to save kittens it probably acted out of instincts. So inspiring to hear even animals would risk their lives for others.

  10. melinda on Sep 9, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    thank you for posting the video. i have no words to describe how touched i was after watching this video. out of 90% of cruelty the world has created.. there’s still a touch of compassion and love surrounding us “without condition”. its a shame at times.. and sad but true.. an animal shows more compassionate act rather than us humans.. (some of us) ^_^ i definitely fall in the category of leo’s act :D but this could really show the world that we need to take leo as a great example for us all to make the world a better place.

  11. henry ooi on Sep 4, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Leo has demonstrated to us what bravery and compassion are through his action. I guess we have a lot to learn from animals instead of just looking at them as just pets, pests, transportation, food, apparels, sports, to be used in labs, etc.

  12. Lim Han Nee on Sep 2, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    The nicest thing about Leo is that he didn’t practice ‘discrimination’ when it came to rescuing beings in danger. His courage is amazing! The happy part is that he didn’t succumb to the smoke.

    Though stories about the kindness of animals revolve predominantly around dogs, there are stories of other animals who have shown kindness and humanity too. I have read, in an issue of Readers Digest, how a rescued cat was turned (by his vet rescuer and owner) into a ‘therapy’ cat for old and lonely folk in a hospital!

  13. Roy Martinez on Sep 2, 2011 at 12:53 am

    Maybe Leo knew these kittens in a past life… it just goes to show you that animals are sentient beings

  14. Ash Ng on Sep 1, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    Very brave of Leo to brace itself to save the 4 kittens from the fire. Very compassionate and very selfless and a true living example of a selfless being. Rinpoche, thank you for sharing this remarkable story

  15. tsemtulku on Sep 1, 2011 at 1:19 am

    I have always liked dogs naturally since I was very young. Dogs and all animals should never be hurt, abused or mistreated. They don’t have as much as we do and hence all the more reason we should never abuse our abilities and hurt them or anyone. TR

  16. Nicholas on Aug 31, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    Wow….it touches me even though this is not the first time i have heard of how animals save lives.

    every time when i come across this kind of news, it just remind me that even animals understand the selflessness, help others, sharing, etc….

    No reason for me not to do so.

  17. Vaiwa veg on Aug 31, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    so amazing… i have heard many stories about life saving animals, not only dogs, but also cats, pigs (like Lulu…), even birds… Yesterday also one cat was brought to the clinic, because of depression. His loved owner is very old and got to hospital, so the cat is very sad, refuses to eat and leave his home, go to the bus station and sleep there on a bench….waiting for his owner to come back…:((

  18. Uncle Eddie on Aug 31, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    There are many true stories of how dogs rescue human lives which always capture our feelings, love and affection. It seems most people naturally love to hear stories about dogs, a man’s best friend, who saved people from perilous circumstances. Even in times of war, particularly the Vietnam war, many dogs came up as heroes saving lives, but end up as losers, even losing their lives for nothing. The vietnam war was a war none will forget; it brought sorrow and losses to countless of people, even the animals, such as the dogs! Many sent to vietnam were killed in action, some missing till this day. Those soldiers who were lucky enough to return home were honoured for their efforts, heroism and courage, but for the dogs, it seems that many were left behind, became unknown, finally disappear into thin air. At the time of war, the dogs’story was prevalent, but today it has become unknown and un-important, perhaps just remaining a myth or a faint memory of courage, patriotism and courage without metioning “betrayal”!

  19. ST on Aug 31, 2011 at 12:23 am

    As can be seen from this and many other true life episodes, Dogs are so true to their character as described in your chinese horoscope blog:
    The Dog is the most likeable of the signs being very amiable and extremely accommodating to others’ needs. He finds it easy and natural to be giving and helpful – altruism is an inherent part of who he is and all that he does.

    Driven only by goodness, the righteous Dog will put his all into righting wrongs and helping to relieve the suffering of others. He himself has little personal ambition – he doesn’t have any particular desire to jostle for power, status nor wealth, which makes it all the easier for him to sacrifice any and everything he has for the sake of someone else’s happiness. They are at their best playing supportive roles. He is truly man’s best friend and is in his strongest element when he is able to help someone.

    The Dog is also very grounded and realistic, with his two feet firmly on the ground. He is reliable, trustworthy and committed and you can be sure of his loyalty and friendship until the very end.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who remains undefeated by rituals, magic, mantras, negative words, fire pujas and suppression from the highest, your time has come. Your lineage and your works will grow and expand into the three planes, ten directions and six realms as pre-ordained by the vows you took in front of Buddha and again Manjunatha Tsongkapa. May we gain your attainments and be protected by you. All beings’ sufferings be released as dedicated by the supreme Shantideva. May Dharma reign supreme and Mara’s forces by quelled.

    “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: At the end of the day, education is brainwashing. Brainwashing is inevitable. We human beings love doing that. We are already brainwashed—we don’t know otherwise. So since we are going to brainwash anyway, it’s good to brainwash with good motivation and so that we can be kind, harmonious, and also decent. Becoming decent human beings seems to be not so much in the modern education agenda because, as we all know, modern education seems to be so much about what we can have. Human beings are defined by what we have, like cars and houses. And then modern education is also so much geared towards getting a job. There are very few schools that teach you anything other than what will benefit you in getting a job”

    Lower life forms do not know about spirituality and yet they live in bliss except at times when they are predated upon. Have we ever thought of this? The lower life forms do not distinguish vices from virtues nor do they get into a process to become ‘good’. They simply are ‘being’ within the totality of reality of which they are not even conscious since they are not self-conscious beings. If that be so, why do humans make such a big deal of ‘spirituality’? This is not to cast aspersions on any analysis in spirituality but a genuine self contemplation on why we, or at least those who perceive a fundamental error in our individual or collective conduct, contemplate about this anomaly & obvious aberration in human conduct? Suppose if we just be with everything without either glorification or condemnation and be true to our being self-conscious, which faculty is given for a purpose in our evolutionary journey and dwell deep into that inquiry without any obvious answers or concepts or conclusions, we would perhaps done justice to our being self-conscious beings. But unfortunately this is not to be since we are literally obsessed with concepts, even of spirituality which does no good and of religion which has done more harm than any good and are literally living in our mental field which by itself cannot take us beyond it, if the true meaning of existence is indeed beyond it or deep within, both being a gateway for a realm that we ‘know’ exists and where we can be what we are; conscious animals in the total existential field in harmony with everything that are.

    “Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man, living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these 10 things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send *you* to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever til the end of time…but he loves you.”

    Tortoises Kadro and Menlha have been long time residences with the Kechara Organisation, taken care by many volunteers since 2009. While the animal caretakers feed and provide shelter to Kadro and Menlha, these tortoises require kind sponsors to fund their daily needs – mainly food, maintenance and veterinary care.

    Kechara Forest Retreat would love to extend this opportunity for more people to show love to the residents at The Aviary, particularly Kadro and Menlha and we seek your kind sponsorships to keep them happy and loved.

    With just $300 a month, Kadro and Menlha’s meals and veterinary care (if necessary) would be taken care of. We seek a total amount of $4,800 from this fund raising to keep the tortoises happy for the next coming 16 months.

    Tsem Rinpoche: Dear Jacinta, Thank you for sharing with Choong my blog post on Nibiru. I am glad you remember that post.

    Jacinta Goh: Choong, the Planet Nibiru was once mentioned by Rinpoche here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/science-mysteries/where-do-we-really-come-from.html. Annunaki, believed to be giants at 10 feet tall and there was once I read a sutra where Lord Buddha telling his disciple about the beings that live far from us and they’re a lot bigger than us. We are considered alien and very small to them. Perhaps in future when we are able to space travel, then this finding could be a fact rather than just mere believing.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

“If one does the recitation of the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga prayer for even one month using one of the visualizations for great or clear or quick wisdom, one will definitely see development of that wisdom. It is proved by experience. There is no doubt that by doing the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga practice one can meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings from life to life. And furthermore, it gives one the opportunity to be born in the pure realm of Lama Tsongkhapa, Tushita, whenever death happens.” - Pabongkha Rinpoche

This is super simple yet super powerful and it is the black and white truth. Read this short thought and contemplate deeply. Tsem Rinpoche 
1 month ago
At the age of 23, Tsongkhapa went to the region of U to meet up with some people from his hometown, Amdo. His friends entreated him to return to Amdo and they also gave him a letter from his mother. She also requested him to return to Amdo and had slipped one of her white hairs in the letter too. Touched by this, Tsongkhapa considered returning to Amdo for a while. However, when he contemplated deeper. he realized that if he left for Amdo, he would be disrupting his practices of mental discipline. As there was no benefit, he sadly decided not to return to his homeland. Instead he sent a thangka of a painting of himself to his mother in Amdo. When his mother opened it, the picture spoke to her and it was as if Tsongkhapa was there with her, which brought her great joy. In a letter accompanying the thangka, Tsongkhapa requested his mother and sister to build a stupa around the sandalwood tree which had sprung up at his birth. His mother and sister complied and from that stupa, the holy monastery of Kumbum developed.
