Dear friends,

Sometimes not knowing is better. Sometimes knowing is better. If you don’t know and you continue, the repercussions are still there. Yes still there. I thought we should start our day with these pictures and captions and end our day with it also as to remind us what sufferings some animals are put through for our palates.

Please read and please share with others. It’s horrible to look at but more horrible not to look because we need to know where the meat on our plate came from.

Tsem Rinpoche

After years of losing her babies and pumping out milk for humans – when she is too tired and weak this is how her life will end —Animals in this condition are known in the meat and dairy industry as “downers.” According to the industry’s own statistics, each year, millions of chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows arrive at the slaughterhouse either dead or too sick or injured to walk. The animals be…come severely crippled or ill after a lifetime of abuse in factory farms and a very difficult journey to the slaughterhouse, during which they are shipped through all weather extremes without any food or water. Factory farms don’t provide individualized medical care or humane euthanasia to sick animals: It’s cheaper to let the animals suffer and eventually die. The suffering caused by the meat, egg, and dairy industries’ cost-cutting measures is enormous.
 
 
 
 
**********
 
 
 
 
 
 
The fox stands no chance. This is one of the techniques EU hunters use to train their dogs… They allow the dogs to tear and eat the fox alive, while they watch and cheer on.
 
 
 
**********
 
 
 
 
Imagine a situation in which over 90% of the people in the world are cripple , who can’t walk normally and suffer from constant pain for about half of their lifetime. A global nightmare!
This is an every day reality for a population, which is 8 times larger than the human one annually.
The industry which makes meat out of little fragile chicks, also referred to as broiler chickens, is indubitably …the most extreme example of humans’ absolute and destructive domination over non-human animals. A domination which is found in every aspect of the chick’s miserable short life.

The massacre numbers are unbearable. 150 million chickens are murdered every single day. 104,640 every minute! 1,744 a second!
Right now, while you are reading this sentence, thousands of sentient creatures are brutally slaughtered somewhere in the world. More than 3,500 in a second. And there will be even more tomorrow.

Motherless from day one, the chicks must fend for themselves in huge windowless sheds with up to 100,000 other birds.
As the birds grow, space for each individual decreases. At some point each bird has only 20 x 20cm of floor and must push his/her way trough a solid mass of other chickens to reach food and water points. Many die in the attempt.

Today’s meat chickens have been genetically altered to grow three times faster and three times larger than their ancestors. Pushed beyond their biological limits, hundreds of millions of chickens die each year before reaching 6 weeks of age. (When they are slaughtered). The modern broiler is a genetic freak, doomed to eternal physical and mental ills.
Picture a six-year-old child weighting 156kg. Terrifying!
Now try to imagine him walk.
Hideous and cruel for a child, but a present reality for a six weeks old chick.

The combination of forced rapid growth and excessive weight causes chronic, painful lameness and abnormal gait. The bird’s body grows too fast for the bone plates to accommodate. Consequently, the birds develop angular bone deformities and “kinky back”, in which the vertebra snaps and puts pressure on the spinal cord, causing paralysis. The birds can only move by using their wings to balance. Though they live only a few weeks, chickens suffer old-age illnesses such as heart attacks, as their hearts and lungs are unable to keep up with the fast growth of their body muscles. Heart attacks and the so-called “acute death syndrome” are major causes of mortality.

    When exposed to graphics and videos depicting animals being abused etc, many would be very much disturbed by them. In fact, majority wouldn’t be able to stomach watching any form of animals being cruelly tortured.

    Yet, these are the same people supporting an industry that tortures and slaughters more than 56 billion animals annually. Whether it is the case of ignorance, lack of will power, just plain desensitized etc, people conveniently ignore the pain and suffering of the animals just to satisfy their wants, be deriving pleasure from the taste or entertainment factor.

    It is like despite knowing it is a terrible thing to be doing but yet still continuing with it and conveniently opt to overlook such reality. Guess it is not that easy to do the right thing when it requires a lifestyle change.

  2. Chris on Dec 27, 2014 at 11:46 pm

    I am so ashamed of myself eating meat and causing pain to animals. At this stage in life I have no other viable choice to keep on living. May Buddha forgive me.

  3. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 19, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. It’s horrible for me to look at the photos because I had cruelly killed some of animals before. I feel bad and regretted for what I had done. I hope I will have courage to take vegetarian vow in future.

  4. Beatrix Ooi on May 4, 2014 at 10:13 am

    I agree to what Rinpoche wrote, sometimes now knowing is better but at times, we need to realise how our actions and decisions can change the lives of the animals. Why do we crave for some unnecessary enjoyments when we don’t need at all?! For example, fur. Why do you need them? Its all just because you’re a total egomaniac, that’s how it is. Please don’t tell me it provides warmth although its true, but the fur is for the animal itself, it was never meant for you. Now if you have your own fur growing on your body, that’s yours.

  5. Edward ooi on Mar 9, 2014 at 10:33 pm

    I wonder how us humans will feel if one day some giant creature just starting to come out of nowhere and start killing us and doing the same thing that we are doing to the animals. I know that some people will say that we will try to invent things to kill them or try to escape from the slaughterhouse. But again, what if they take everything from us and just keep us in a empty giant slaughterhouse. What and how will you feel?

  6. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 14, 2013 at 1:29 am

    I feel very bad as I was looking at the picture of the dog tearing up the fox, it should not have been that way. Dogs are not supposed to live like that! Can you imagine hundreds and thousands of animals are to be killed every day just to fulfil our needs? They deserve a better life!

  7. Nancy Loo on Dec 10, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    I believe every living beings on earth regardless whether they are human beings, animals,insects etc should be free from all abuse and cruelty. Why should some harm others in return for monetary or out of jealousy or anger or is it the law of cause and effect of the past ?? It’s so disgusting and sad to see the poor animals to have such ill fate and inhuman treatments.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  8. Lucas Roth on Dec 1, 2013 at 12:23 am

    Oh my god, i HATE animal cruelty. It is so sick how people are and how they say they are so kind but they eat the flesh of a body that once lived but was bred to die in a slaughterhouse that they probably didnt see daylight in their lives. please become vegetarian and help them a little. but help the ones who need it most. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  9. sarahyap on Nov 20, 2013 at 12:38 am

    Oh my goodness… this is so horrible! Be it an animal used for their by-products, a ‘sports’ animal or farm animals… they all suffer greatly with not even one moment of relief from the pain they are going through.

    It is so difficult to imagine how people would cheer while a dog tears the fox apart while it is still alive… how can people enjoy such a cruel ‘sport’? I just don’t understand… Why must animals die for the sake of our entertainment and to satisfy our taste buds… why must animals die for our attachments? Very sad…

  10. Irene Lim on Nov 11, 2013 at 4:12 am

    So many people say ignorance is bliss. But karma which is an universal law follows us like a shadow. Therefore it is wise to have knowledge and refrain from non-virtuous acts and create no harm to animals.

  11. Uncle Eddie on Oct 25, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Like what Alice Walker, a Pulitzer Prize Winning Novelist said, quote; “The animals of the World exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans – The animals of the Planet are in desperate perli and they are fully aware of this. No less than human beings in all parts of the World, They seek Sanctuary.” So as not to add any further sufferings,as what Rinpoche recommended, “Please do not eat meat to harm animals!” Thank you Rinpoche for your kind and humane thought! Om mani padme hung.

  12. Lucas Roth on Oct 17, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    I thing people should know how these animals are treated. It is so horrible how people are to these, it is like eating your dog or cat. Everyone who likes dogs or cats should be vegetarian because why like this and eat that? Thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  13. Felix kong on Oct 16, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. Yes, is better know this situation and should stop create this bad karma. Due to strong demand of consumers, many animals suffer for pain before slaughter, they just only care for their profit. Be vegetarian and care for animals.

  14. Cliff on Oct 14, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Reading all this makes me feel sick to the core, i feel cery sorry for all the animals that have been born to be slaughtered and eaten since day one, without being able to experience freedom, happiness, relaxation or even the look of what a tree looks like from a window. When they are born they see closed walls, blood ravaging the floor, rusty bars, other dead bodies and strange alien creatures (humans) tormenting them without a clue as to why they are doing this and why they deserve this, yet having to put through all of it, cry and scream and no one to come help you or even understand you. This is terrible and it should be stopped. The faith in humanity lies within the compassion shown by each and everyone of us and we need to start by doing this. Like Rinpoche says “if you don’t know and you still continue, the reprcussions are still there.”. Why should we choose to live ignorantly when these things go on behind our backs and continue to choose facing away from it. You know it is a terrible thing that they are doing and yet still choose to ignore it. I pray one day killing animals become equivalent to murder. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing more awareness to the public, this only continues to strengthen my decision to be a vegetarian.

  15. Alan Chan (KHJB) on Oct 13, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche’sharing. It is true that we are known those meat in the plate is go through suffering process then only become the “food”, yet people choose forget or “dont know”the process so they can enjoy the food without guilty..we need to educate and spread the informations start from our family , friends and relatives so that more people can start vegetarian.

  16. wansan on Oct 13, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post. It is definitely something all of us must know. Like Rinpoche says “Sometimes not knowing is better. Sometimes knowing is better. If you don’t know and you continue, the repercussions are still there. ” We must create awareness to more people so that more of us know what are these poor animals went through just for the food on our plate. Do they deserve this? Just so that we have a “full and satisfied” meal?

  17. sarahyap on Oct 13, 2013 at 3:41 am

    We need to make it known to everyone when there is any injustice that’s happening to any living being. It is our responsibility as citizens of this planet, we protect and care for each other against those that wish to abuse and exploit the weaker. Something like this must be shared tirelessly to as many people as possible… when it comes to ending cruelty in any form, numbers do matter very much here, and with more people supporting to end these type of cruelty, the quicker these animals will not have to suffer such cruel fate anymore.

  18. Julien Roth on Oct 12, 2013 at 10:27 am

    This is all so terrible. Why do people have to do this to such nice animals? Its just so wrong and cruel. But to me, i think the worst form of cruelty here would be the dog killing and eating the fox. I find that to cruel how they make the dog do such bad things to other animals. I hope all of this will stop soon. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us. I hope that many people see this post.

  19. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Oct 12, 2013 at 1:07 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the real scene behind…

    May holy Dharma spread to ten directions hence more and more peoples realize the Cause and Effect hence started to be less meat eater then toward Vegetarian as soon possible…

  20. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 11, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this grim reminder of man’s callousness and cruelty.I would never be tempted to break my vegetarian vow and eat a piece of chicken meat, no matter how succulent of tasty it is. I will have this picture of the hugely overweight broiler chicken etched in my mind.

    Every picture in this post tells the story of how low humans can sink in not feeling and not caring for others and other beings.When we cannot put ourselves in another being’s shoes, when we cannot feel their pain and their simple joys, that is when we have lost our humanness and become bestial.

    To always turn away from the pain of another being and plead ignorance about it afterward, does not absolve you.Don’t lose touch with the best and the noblest that is in each and everyone of us.

  21. Lucas Roth on Oct 10, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    it is so sad how people treat animals and for their self entertainment with food, training, fun etc. think of how the chickens feel, they are killed the most out of all of the animals. but all the animals have feelings, please help them. please rest well Rinpoche.

  22. Ck siah on Oct 10, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    社会的进步,人口的增加造成食物渐渐供不应求,导至很多商家为了提高盈利,想尽办法,背起良心, 做尽天良。往往家禽畜生被遭受如此不堪的虐待,令人惨不忍睹。然而商家也常常把罪名推给消费者,是市场需求,才有供应,变成双方面都自相矛盾,互相推卸责任。看了这一幕,
    我也身受其感。
    感谢仁波切的分享,让我们尽量转化心识,禁止滥杀无辜,所谓“放下屠刀,立地成佛”。

  23. jerry_sito on Oct 10, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    感恩仁波切的分享

    让我们了解这重要的讯息,很多时候,因为在城市环境与供应商(隐瞒了许多残忍的一幕)将肉食变成美丽的包装的情况下

    似乎我们都已经忘记了,农场里发生血腥与残忍的的一幕幕,在经过多年的强迫性生育以满足牛排/小牛肉/牛肉的市场需求,以及多年的强迫性产奶之后,这头母牛就这样被送到屠宰场。年复一年的生育及产奶已经把它的身体弄垮,它经已筋疲力尽得无法走动了。为了给我们提供不必要的肉食,数百万的动物便遭受如此不堪的对待

    感谢仁波切的一在提醒我们,与我们分享这些资讯,好让我们不掉入不好的因果循环里,感恩仁波切爱我们

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you very much for the teachings. You have tirelessly throw ways and means to convert us to vegetarian from the moive earthlings and all the cruelty to anminals. I am most grateful for all the teachings. It makes me more mindful and nowadays and have been vegetarian almost 3years ago and took my vegetarin vows last year. Initially, I could not feel the pain of the sufferings of animals but as time pass. My heart hurts so much to even see these and makes me hate the human race for their cruelty. I wish I can save all these pitiful animals I will continue to pray for more people to find themselves better jobs and liberate those animals from sifferings. I also have a section on my facebook on ‘simple vegetarian’ so I can share the recipe with my friends who are not vegetarian. I wish for more people to be vegatarian stop harming animals.

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us how these animals suffer through our own selfishness.

  25. Choongs on Oct 10, 2013 at 9:58 am

    “I became a vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry and unhappy like we do. I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom. It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings.”
    ― César Chávez

    “We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves.”
    ― César Chávez

    WORK TWICE AS HARD!

  26. Edern tan on Oct 10, 2013 at 2:48 am

    I hope this would stop now. When will all this suffering stop. We should now what we are eating and imagine if we were the animal in the slaughterhouse how would you feel. I hope this would stop now. I feel like vomiting as i was reading this article.

  27. AdelineTan on Oct 10, 2013 at 12:39 am

    It is very sad and scary to see how human beings can treat these animals so cruelly. These poor animals have been used and abused all their lives by the people in this trade. Hope these photos can create awareness for people not to harm the animals and eat their meat. All living beings deserve the rights to live.

  28. Edward Ooi on Oct 9, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, even now when I’m commenting on this post at least 500,000 animals are being slaughtered. Just like Rinpoche said ‘the amount of animals being slaughtered is increasing every single day!’ Then how are we going to stop it? Having more vegetarians around the world is really good but people who aren’t vegetarian are eating more animal product foods. What can I do to save them from being slaughter?

  29. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 9, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    I pray for the animals be free of suffering and quickly take a human rebirth to learn and practice the Dharma. So for now when ever I meet any animals, dog, cats or ants I would recite “Om mani padme hung” and blow on them…I feel uneasy imagining to be in the form of animal. Greedy human are so sick… I pray that people will cut down on meat so that the butcher and the eater don’t create negative karma of eating meat, which is unnecessary. There is this post which briefly explains why go on vegan, http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/tantras-vases-finances-meat-thoughts.html.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and having us to realize behind the scene of farm house and the related industry operates.

  30. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 9, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    This is really cruel! Animals do not deserve these, they are beings who are just like humans, who feel pain and love. We have so many food options nowadays, we don’t have to consume meat, there are so many other things that can give us protein and energy,therefore eating meat is very unnecessary cause we don’t need it, it’s a choice.

  31. tenzinkhenchen on Oct 9, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Thanks for sharing this interesting blog post with the readers. I have known that such cruelties have been happening to animals, hence me becoming vegetarian. I think that people should stop harming animals for their own selfish reasons and should also be aware that animals do have souls. What is worse is if they are aware but still continue. That is extremely shameful.

  32. Wylfred Ng on Oct 9, 2013 at 6:17 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing. Really shocked to see such cruel action behind what we eat everyday.
    We need to start from our self to stop this cruel action.
    Be vegetarian

  33. Shelly tai on Oct 9, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post with us . Is very sad to read and look at all the pain we human have created to all this innocent animals and they cannot talk and fight for their right. As I go through the picture I do not think that the workers is treating this animals as living being who can feel pain and scared they treat them like goods no live very inhuman act. Please be vegan and safe this poor animals who deserve to live well.

    Appreciate Robert for his generousity and kindness in giving the USD 5K to Rinpoche so he can settled all his loan and buy ticket to India to pursue his promise to be a monk. And he gave Rinpoche money without any condition but with sincere hope that Rinpoche can achieve his promise to be a monk.

    Rinpoche also showed to us that if we have good intention and determination in dharma we can achieve our goal. For example, Rinpoche do 100 prostration daily to Zong Rinpoche’s photo in order to create a cause for him to learn from Zong Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story so we do not give up and continue learning and practising dharma .

    How to Rely upon Dorje Shugden

    Relying on a Dharma Protector or Dharmapala is an essential and beneficial practice within Vajrayana Buddhism. As a result of living in the Kaliyuga (degenerate) age, where negative karma is immense and distractions from the spiritual path are abundant, treading the path to Enlightenment can be an arduous and obstacle-ridden road.

    There’s a topic most people find a little awkward to talk about, and that’s sponsorship in the Dharma. People find it awkward because they think money is not a very spiritual thing to discuss. Yet it is an unavoidable subject because it’s a simple fact of life in samsara – monasteries and Dharma institutions would never be able to survive without the kindness of sponsors, and if they did not have the funds.

    Read this powerful piece by Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai (Ani Lobsang Pema): http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    The Meaning Behind Dorje Shugden’s Form
    Like the Buddha, Dorje Shugden’s body manifested from his great attainments. Hence, every part of his form has deep spiritual significance. Dorje Shugden’s entire body represents the complete path of the Lamrim or the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, and meditating upon it with correct understanding will generate great merits and spiritual attainments. This is a brief explanation of Dorje Shugden’s form: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/overview/the-meaning-behind-dorje-shugdens-form

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this and it open up my view on reincarnation topic.

    At this day and age, it is indeed surprising for leaders of faith to apply a heavy-handed technique to oppress nonbeliever or the deviant. It is hard to accept because we have been educated by the history of painful examples where discrimination and persecution were usually man-made because of intolerance, lack of acceptance and ignorance. I wish the Baha’i faith grow and shine, and may harmony and love pervades the community.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us here online the very rare and holy image of Pabongka Rinpoche in Tantric dress. He is the lineage master of Tibetan Buddhism that His Holiness Dalai Lama is teaching today. I am very fortunate to be able to meet with Tsem Rinpoche whose teaching traced back to Pabongka Rinpoche unbroken. May more people realize the weight of unbroken lineage in Buddhism and hence see the importance of Guru Devotion, which is the cornerstone of pure lineage in many ways.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the interesting article. We get to learn more about preventing snakes the natural way. It ‘s nice to know that we can rely on plants to repel snakes, and some of these plants are suitable to be planted in Malaysia. Garlic paste sounds not trying to make and a natural way to repel snakes. I wonder if it works to keep lizards away too?

    This is a very nice sharing by Cindy Dinh. Rejoice to your keen interest in Buddhism in spite of being at an age where spirituality is not a common topic of interest. Please continue to explore the many teachings and topics here on the blog. And thank you, Cindy for writing to show your appreciation. It is a great testimony to the good work by Rinpoche and the team and will be a motivation for the rest of us too.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this advice, which gives depth to what it means by living with parents versus living on our own. The key takeaway is taking responsibility for our own life hence making our own destiny. Camping in our comfort zone for too long will not fuel us to do better or be stronger and more independent. At the end of the day, our attitude determines our actions, and our actions determine our success. Go for it, everyone! You never try, you never know. ��

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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

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

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