Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz.

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David)

Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz was an American explorer, anthropologist, writer, and, most famously, a pioneer in the field of Tibetan Buddhist studies. His writings were pivotal in the early transmission of Tibetan Buddhism to the west, especially his iconic early translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead published in 1927.

In addition, Evans-Wentz was also known for translating three other Tibetan books: Tibet’s Great Yogi Milarepa (1928), Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines (1935), and The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation (1954). However, even before his foray into Tibetan Buddhism, Evans-Wentz was the authority on fairy lore, when he published The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries in 1911. This work was a culmination of fieldwork collecting fairy folklore stories in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man.

Formative Years

EW-Trenton-03

Evans-Wentz was born in Trenton, a bustling American city that was briefly the capital of the United States.

Walter Yeeling Wentz was born in Trenton, New Jersey in 1878. He had two brothers and two sisters, but kept mostly to himself. His father was of German descent, was fairly successful as a real estate businessman, but was also an alcoholic. His mother was Irish, and it was his Irish roots that likely sparked his initial interest in Celtic fairy lore.

He grew up initially as a Baptist, but as he grew older, his father’s dabbling into spiritualism and Theosophy began to influence the family. As a teenager, Evans-Wentz was particularly interested in the occult, and read extensively on the writings of Madame Blavatsky on Theosophy like Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine.

EW_Blavatsky-04

Evans-Wentz youthful interest in the esoteric writings of Madame Blavatsky was the earliest reference to Tibetan lamas.

It was through the writings of Madame Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy that he first came across references to Tibetan lamas, the source of inspiration for Blavatsky’s own Theosophy. Theosophy revolves around a collection of mystical philosophies and the occult that concerns the search for knowledge of the mysteries of life, the nature of reality, and particularly the nature of divinity and the universe. Theosophy is widely considered a part of Western esotericism, which believes that hidden knowledge or wisdom from our ancient past offers a path towards enlightenment and salvation.

Evans-Wentz actually saw the universal truth in all religions, but held a lifelong mistrust against Christianity, which he saw as petty and narrow-minded. He adopted the belief in reincarnation wholeheartedly, and believed that Gnostic Christians had once held onto a belief in reincarnation and wondered why mainstream Christianity had abandoned that belief. At the turn of century, he followed his father to San Diego, California in order to join his father’s profession and partly to be closer to Lomaland, the American headquarters for the Theosophical Society.

EW-Lomaland_Akademie-05

Lomaland was a Theosophical community located in Point Loma in San Diego, California from 1900 to 1942.

At age 24, Evans-Wentz enrolled into Stanford University to pursue his studies in religion, philosophy and history. It was at this time that he was deeply influenced by visiting philosopher and psychologist William James, and Irish poet W. B. Yeats. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees, and subsequently studied Celtic mythology and folklore at Jesus College, Oxford in 1907.

During this time, he travelled extensively throughout Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man as part of his fieldwork associated with the study of Celtic fairy lore. His research was eventually published as a book, The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries in 1911. During this time, he decided to add his mother’s Welsh surname Evans to his own name, and became known as Evans-Wentz.

 

Travel to the East

EW_tibetanBuddhism-06Upon encountering Tibetan Buddhism, Evans-Wentz would later praise the hermit lifestyle. Before this, he was an impressionable and dreamy youth who spent hot and lazy afternoons by the Delaware River. On one of these afternoons, he recalled that he had a ‘vision’ that left him convinced that he had lived within separate bodies before, and that he saw visions of a previous life that came so strongly to him that it remained with him for the rest of his life. The night after the visions came to him, he knew that he would eventually wander all over the world as a pilgrim in search of the truth.

During his time at Oxford, Evans-Wentz encountered many intellectuals, scholars, and poets, which included a curious British Army officer and archaeologist by the name of T. E. Lawrence who recommended him to travel to the East, and, self-funded by a string of rented properties in Florida, Evans-Wentz embarked on an extensive tour of Mexico, Europe, and then the Orient.

Evans-Wentz was in Egypt during the First World War, and as soon as it was over, he quickly boarded a ship from Port Said in Egypt and sailed for Colombo, Sri Lanka, known at that time as Ceylon. He took interest in the history, culture and spiritual traditions of the people and studied them extensively. In the process, he amassed a large collection of important Pali texts, which was later donated to Stanford University.

Then in 1918, he travelled across the Indian subcontinent, from one important religious site to another in search of wise men from the east. During this time, he encountered great spiritual teachers like Yogananda, J. Krishnamurti, Ramana, Paul Brunton, Sri Krishna Prem, Maharishi and Shunyata. Naturally, he also visited the Theosophical Society at Adyar and met Annie Besant, Swami Shyamananda, and the founder of the Bihar School of Yoga, Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

EW-Krishnamurti-07

While in India, Evans-Wentz met many influential intellectuals, teachers and philosphers like Jiddu Krishnamurti. (Click to enlarge)

A year passed and he finally arrived at Darjeeling and encountered Tibetan lamas along with Tibetan texts for the first time. It was here that Evans-Wentz acquired the Tibetan text of Karma Lingpa’s Liberation through Hearing during the Intermediate State (which was simply known as Bardo Thodol) from Major Campbell, a British officer returning from Tibet.

The Bardo Thodol was a teaching given in the 8th century by the Indian master Padmasambhava and was written down by his Tibetan consort and student, Yeshe Tsogyal. According to legend, she buried it in the Gampo hills in central Tibet and was uncovered by a Tibetan master, Karma Lingpa, in the 14th century. This text is meant to be a guide for the deceased person to navigate through the experiences of the consciousness in the bardo, or the intermediate state between death and the next rebirth. This text also includes chapters on the death process and a ritual to be performed just before death and after it has taken place.

Not long after that, he met Lama Kazi Dawa-Samdup (1868-1922) who was the English teacher and headmaster of the Maharaja’s Boys School in Gangtok, Sikkim. The two of them struck up an unlikely friendship due to their shared interest in Tibetan Buddhism and the Bardo Thodol, Karma Lingpa’s text. In fact, Kazi Dawa Samdup already had a well-developed interest on the subject of death since at least 1912, according to Alexandra David-Neel’s writings. Evans-Wentz agreed to edit and bear the cost of publication and translation while they were collaborating.

Lama Kazi Dawa by this time had already served as translator to His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama during his visit to India in 1910. This teacher had also translated for Alexandra David-Néel, the Belgian-French explorer, writers, Buddhist converts, and Sir John Woodroffe, a famous British Sinophile. It is evident that Lama Kazi Dawa Samdup had an interest in propagating Buddhist teachings outside of Tibet. Therefore, he was finally able to do with the assistance of Evans-Wentz.

Evans-Wentz began to work with Lama Kazi Dawa on the translation of the Bardo Thodol every morning before school began. The translation would later become the basis for the famous Tibetan Book of the Dead. After the translation was done, Evans-Wentz left for Swami Satyananda’s ashram in order to learn and practice yoga. Meanwhile, Lama Kazi Dawa was appointed as a lecturer at the University of Calcutta, but unfortunately passed away three years later, which was way before the book was published.

Oxford University Press published the Tibetan Book of the Dead to critical acclaim in 1927. Evans-Wentz chose the title ‘Book of the Dead’ which was on ‘the art of knowing how to die’, and this reminded him of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. In the west, the book would go on to become the main reference on Tibetan Buddhism for years to come. In the book, Evans-Wentz claimed to only have been the compiler and editor, while Lama Kazi Dawa-Samdup did the actual translation. Unfortunately, Evans-Wentz’s limited understanding of concepts that he learnt from Theosophy and various other metaphysical schools heavily influenced his Tibetan translation.

Nonetheless, the Tibetan Book of the Dead was one of the first reliable translations of a Tibetan Buddhist text into English. By 1950, the book was translated into the major European languages and gained further acceptance within the scientific community. It is notable that the famous Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, wrote a foreword to the second edition of this book and acknowledged that the Tibetan Book of the Dead inspired him in his work.

Evans-Wentz’s following book was Tibet’s Great Yogi Milarepa (1928), which was another of Samdup’s translations. Evans-Wentz considered this book to be on ‘the art of mastering life’ instead of death. In the course of his translations, Evans-Wentz became a practitioner of the Buddhist faith he was studying. He became the student of Lama Kazi Dawa-Samdup, wore loose oriental robes, and maintained a vegetarian diet. Then in 1935, he met Ramana Maharshi and travelled to Darjeeling in order to employ three translators from Sikkim, who were of Tibetan descent, in order to work on what would become the Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines (1935). In this book, he took on a decidedly anti-Western tone in introducing the esoteric teachings.

Evans-Wentz was planning to make India his home, but World War II changed his plans, and he was forced to return to the United States. He would publish The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation in 1954, and his last book, Cuchama and Sacred Mountains, was published posthumously in 1989. Aside from his books, he was known to have written a glowing foreword to Yogananda’s famous Autobiography of a Yogi, in which he introduced Yogananda and his relations with this teacher to a wider audience. The book would be in print for over 65 years and translated into 35 languages.

Despite his practice of Buddhism, Evans-Wentz identified himself more as a Theosophist for most of his life. He also wrote many articles for Theosophical publications and donated generously to the Maha Bodhi Society, the Self-Realization Fellowship, and the Theosophical Society.

 

His Later Years and His Passing

EW_Walter_Evans-Wentz_t670Upon returning to the United States, Evans-Wentz lived for 23 years at the Keystone Hotel in San Diego in order to be near the only vegetarian restaurant – the House of Nutrition. The hotel was also near the Public Library, where he could browse copies of his own books, as he had given away his only copies.

He had already praised the Buddhist hermit ideal and he came to realise it with Mount Cuchama, which was a few miles away from the Mexican border. He bought up as much land on the mountain as possible and established his little retreat house on the land in order to practice ‘the Dharma, the Buddhist way of truth’.

“Buildings end in ruin, meetings in separation, accumulation in dispersion and life in death.” ~ Milarepa

For the last months of his life, Evans-Wentz lived in Yogananda’s Self-Realization Fellowship in Encinitas, California and passed away on July 1965. As a eulogy, The Tibetan Book of the Dead was read out during Evans-Wentz’s funeral.

Since 1969, through funding from Evans-Wentz’s bequest, Stanford University’s Department of Religious Studies has been hosting The Evans-Wentz Lectureship in Asian Philosophy, Religion, and Ethics. With his extraordinary books on Tibetan Buddhism, Evans-Wentz left a lasting legacy for posterity.

    Thank you Pastor David for this most informative bio of Mr. Walter Evans-Wentz.
    Several months ago, as Rinpoche can concur, I received a parcel of books from Malaysia. Out of great kindness and compassion I was fortunate to receive these books from Rinpoche’s own personal Library! I cannot begin to describe my elation and jubilation upon opening this precious gift from The 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. It also included a hand written letter containing Rinpoche’s hopes I too would find enlightenment, as he did, in reading these most accomplished writers such as Walter Wentz. One of the books in particular was TIBETAN YOGA AND SECRET DOCTRINES by Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz as mentioned in the article. I had read THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD some 20 years ago and only now, thanks to Rinpoche’s gift, as Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctines texts were meant to serve as a companion to understanding the profound concepts relating to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, as a result of reading I am better able to grasp the relativity of the great work as a whole.
    In so far as gaining an appreciation for what determination and fortitude it must have taken for the author to compile, assist to translate (With the help of Lama Kazi Dawa Samdrup), and to publish such works for the west is stupendous. Grateful for having the text contained within, as without the aforementioned I may never have had something to bring me to the teachings of the Buddha, Rinpoche and the Dharma.
    Immeasurable thanks once again from Canada with much love, reverence and admiration. May you enjoy long life, wellness of mind, body and being. Please remain for many years to turn the wheel of Dharma, for all who will come to know The Great Liberation in time.

    I thank Walter Evans-Wentz for his undying effort in spreading Tibetan Buddhism to the western world. He is one of the people who played a big role in spreading Tibetan Buddhism in particular those days and popularize it. It was through his hardwork and passion that made it possible. It is more difficult to do that those days as there were no support of technology literally so his efforts are supposedly greater as it is harder those days. My two cents.

    Dear friends,

    This meme is powerful. Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become.

    We have to acknowledge that it is through Walter Evans-Wentz scholastic interest in Tibetan Buddhism that brought some Dharma knowledge and interest to the west during the ancient time when Buddhism resources were so scare. His works could have ignited many seekers in spiritual quest to venture into Tibetan Buddhism in the conservative era. Walter Evans-Wentz was one of the pioneers connecting the Eastern Philosophy to the West.

  5. wan wai meng on Oct 3, 2017 at 10:47 pm

    It is due to this curious and intellectual westerners that even more scholastic subjects of Tibetan Buddhism come to light in the modern world. Walter Evans-Wentz through his scholarship and practices have helped to bridge the interest of Tibetan Buddhism into modern and current times.

    Such scholars were like the Indiana Jones of Buddhism, and they played an important role of bringing the dharma to the West. They also remind me of the translators of old who translated the dharma from Sanskrit to Tibetan.

  6. Samfoonheei on Sep 24, 2017 at 7:59 am

    Walter Evans-Wentz was an American anthropologist and writer who was a pioneer in the study of Tibetan Buddhism,He has since introduction and translated a number of Tibetan Buddhism to the Western world. Evans-Wentz is best known for four texts translated from the Tibetan, Amazingly he travelled across India and Sri Lanka covering important religious sites to study the history, customs and religious traditions of the country, and also collected a large number of important Pali manuscripts. It was then later donated to Stanford University. He has even worked as a translator with Alexandra David-Néel and so forth producing ,forewording a few interesting books before his passing.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading.

  7. Datuk May on Sep 18, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    People who had lived and served the Dharma hold great inspiration for me. The reason is, if not for these great scholars, adventurers to seek the truth, the Dharma may not be interpreted and translated for “English” educated people the like of me.

    It is through the writings and translations of inspirational people like Walter Evan-Wentz that the western world had the first glimpse of Tibetan Buddhism. There are also many others who had made the same contribution.

    It is admirable during the times of these great Tibetan Buddhism scholars when travelling was not so convenient, they would still leave their countries of abode to go to the Orient to learn and study Buddhism.

    H.E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai had painstakingly gathered information and references on all these great scholars for us to follow through. Thank you.

    Ancient civilisation had something very peculiar that is lost today, which is the elongated skull. Modern science today sometimes dismisses the phenomenon of elongated skulls that appeared across many civilisations as cranial deformation. But are they? This video presented many sound reasons that the elongated skulls are in fact alien beings who came to earth, imparted humans with knowledge and possibly stayed and made a family here. For sure, humans are not the only civilization in this whole universe, because it does not make sense that only planet earth can provide for living beings, and nowhere else. At some point in time, alien beings who are more advanced could have landed and left some behind. It is therefore not abstract to believe that part of our ancestry and the way we live today are heritage of alien civilization.

    Our ancestors definitely had better intelligence and wisdom than we give them credit for. They are not as “primitive” as we had defined them, even by our standards. This video is evidence that ancient technology is capable of advance flying mechanics, building technology as well as food science. Unfortunately, history did not have these chapters captured clearly, resulting in a lack of compelling proof that it was the result of human engineering. It could therefore be knowledge imparted by foreign intelligence beings.

    Because people centuries or decades ago cannot fathom the intelligence of these ancient creations, they conveniently labelled them something else, for example the flying machine had been categorised as bird, the fighter jet as bugs, so on. Legends and myths could therefore be based on something real too, the battles in the sky with fire spilling weapons could be a reality in the distanced past. How interesting! It would be truly amazing to see a modern version of the magic carpet!

    By the way, it’s quite noticeable that the modern gliders possess wings much longer that the ancient flying machine. Did I miss the answer? lol

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching and reminder. We always think we have so much time and concentrate so much in making our body look good and using it to generate wealth which in the end didn’t bring us anything happiness that can last long. We should in fact use our temporary body to work on bringing benefit on others and to generate more merits that can help ourselves and others. Hence we should do more dharma and not waste our time on unnecessary things that will attract us into more worldly actions.

    The title ‘Great Scholar’ of India is truly appropriate for Professor Lokesh Chandra. His collection of work is marvellous and very beneficial to any student of Buddhism or spiritual aspirant! From his work, it is evident that Professor Lakesh has deep expertise in language with unequivocal understanding of the Buddhist text as well as superior knowledge of Buddhist iconography. I am at awe! I certainly look forward to reading some of Professor’s work. Thank you for this wonderful sharing, Rinpoche, Joy.

    Stunning…… this very famous Vajrayogini – Ugra Tara temple situated in Sankhu, Kathmandu, Nepal full of history, legends and culture . This temple seem to have the greatest power of blessings for everyone who visited and seeing it. Vajrayogini is a Hindu goddess of knowledge and wisdom and for the Buddhist is also known as Ugra Tara . This temple was built dedicated to the goddess Vajrayogini ,has attracted thousands of pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Sankhu is one of the sacred power places of Vajrayogini in Nepal . I do hope I can visit this beautiful sacred temple one day. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing with us. I loved looking at those beautiful pictures as shared.

    Wow …having the Chinese New Year and the Tibetan New Year same day . That’s wonderful, auspicious and rare whereby everyone will be enjoying at the same time. Dorje Shugden’s precious advice during Lunar New Year 2018 is indeed timely. However small or big deeds is still very virtuous as long as we put in our best with a good motivation and a pure mind. All of us are fortunate to have met Rinpoche through kechara and have learned ,practiced Dharma. Without Rinpoche there is no Dharma…….we are indeed grateful . I am glad to have made the right choice to choose what i want to learn and practice .Having this precious advice from our powerful Protector Dorje Shugden is a blessing. May our compassionate Guru stays healthy and live long to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefits all the sentient beings. May more and more people benefits from this precious advice and Dorje Shugden protections.
    Thank you Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche for this powerful advice which I will bear in mind and had it bookmarked .

    Life is made up of choices. I believe life is just a series of decisions we make, and depending on our choice, we have to live with the consequences of our choices. We are responsible for our own lives, and being accountable for whatever decisions we’ve made we can change our lives for the better. The choices we make, however, determine our happiness or our unhappiness. I did not realise much earlier but reading this profound teachings has taught me many and a wake up call for me.
    “What you are today, is the choice you made yesterday……as said by Tsem Rinpoche
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teachings

    It is true all the emotions comes from our mind. Most of the time we tend to see a problem to be so big which we can actually have a choice to dilute it and make it smaller. We always have our expectation on everything and once it goes against ours, we are not happy and anger arise. Therefore we should control our mind and not let it direct us to think and act negatively.

    It’s so heartwarming to watch the short video. The bond between Sirga and Valentine are so strong, like meeting an old friend. This video reminds me that animals is just like human and have feelings, therefore treat all of them with respect and care.

    Thank you for sharing the updates on Buddhist community from Tibet and elsewhere. All these grand and meaningful events around the world since 2011 up until 2018 are now accessible to everyone, which was previously not made widely available. It goes to show that more and more people care and are interested about the news and movements of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly Dorje Shugden events. These events also dispel the myths that DS is a minor sect – check out the crowds! Massive numbers of sangha and lay people turn up at these events for the blessing and initiation to DS Sogtae. These events are evidence that religious freedom is enshrined in Tibet, China and other parts of the world; seems like the only place where there is no religious freedom for DS practitioners are under the rule of Dharamsala. Therefore, events updates of DS practitioners gathered together to receive initiation and teachings are really very encouraging. Rejoice to all who received the sogtae!

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Can imagine the situation ,the pain and suffering of that poor pig. They the many of these sows live in cages just large enough to contain their bodies. Sows have a pregnancy lasting around four months and their freedom of movement are restricted .Sad to see that situation ,hoping more can be done to improve it. But the best choice is go on vegetarian so less killing , less consuming meat.

    Happiness , depression, anger, frustration, bitterness is a choice. All is based on how we interpreting each situation in our life and the meaning we associate with. To feel happy, focus on things in our life that will make us feel happy. What ever we see and thinks can lead to thoughts and influences our performance. It is our emotions that influence the way we think and behave We are to accept and the ability to adapt to the challenges of our daily life. A powerful meaning behind this short story. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and powerful post that will helps us in our daily life.

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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. 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 great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    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.

    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. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
