Dear friends,

I have always been an animal lover and it was a great pleasure being able to do research on them and further learn about these wonderful creatures. Dogs are my favourite animal, ever since young I have always had huge interest in dogs and I have been bugging my parents for the longest time to give me the permission to keep a dog, but of course it never happened.

Now that I’m older, I have realised that keeping a pet is something more than just a ‘hobby’, it comes with great responsibilities and commitments. Be it a fish, a guinea pig or a dog, they are all sentient beings and sentient beings have feelings. They feel pain, anger, happiness and love, therefore it’s very important to not take them lightly. Do not keep a pet if you feel that you’re not responsible enough or you do not have the time and commitment to do so.

All animals are equal, whether if it’s just a tiny little bug or the king of jungle, we should respect all animals. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did while doing the research.

Regards,
Beatrix Ooi

    Very interesting❤

  2. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 27, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    Wow! Thank you for these incredibly amazing facts Beatrix! I can’t resist repeating some of them. Didn’t know that-

    – Ostriches can run faster than horses, and hippos faster than humans!
    – A dog’s nose prints act like human fingerprints, for identification!
    – The flea can jump 200 times its own height, equivalent to a man
    jumping the Empire State Building in New York!
    – On the other hand, elephants are the only animals that can’t jump!
    – Two tigers never have the same stripes!
    – The donkey can see all its four legs at all times!
    – Sharks are immune to cancer!
    – The colour red doesn’t really make a bull angry -they are colour-blind
    to red!
    – The ever elegant swan has over 25000 feathers on its body!

    It just goes to show how unique and special each being is!

  3. TekLee on Nov 14, 2016 at 12:44 am

    Wow….. Thank you Beatrix for sharing this amazing information. Some of the animals are quite common. Means, we can easily see them from TV, some petting zoos, or zoos, but didn’t know the amazing facts about them! For example, ostrich. Which was quite famous in KL a couple of months ago, where an ostrich ran on Federal Highway 🙂 Didn’t know that they can run faster than horses. But sadly, their eyes are bigger than their brain.
    But it’s really amazing to know how animal evolved to suit the changes of environment and their habitat. For example for polar bear and siberian husky, if they don’t grow in this way, maybe they won’t be able to survive in artic. It’s how amazing every individual characteristic, their appearance, their behavior, that’s all combine and make them unique.
    Thank you 🙂

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 18, 2016 at 12:54 am

    Very cool to learn about the various species of animals and what is unique about them. Thanks Beatrix.

  5. Anne Ong on Sep 30, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing these interesting fun facts about animals. truly amazing knowledge to learn about these facts.:)
    #64. Clownfish,#48. Octopus,#11. Snail,#75. Hercules beetle,#50. Mantis shrimp,#47. Star-nosed mole. Just to name a few of the ones that caught my interest. Great write up Beatrix! Keep it up 🙂

  6. Pastor KH Ng on Jul 30, 2016 at 12:26 am

    FUN FACTS….the diversity of lives!!

    IT took 2 billion years for lives to evolved from single cell life to lives as we know it today and yet the diversity and abilities of lives still boggles our mind. It shows how wonderful live is but also how ignorant we are.

    All animals and plants along with it’s abilities and characteristics evolved according to Darwinian law of natural selection and of the survival of the fittest, conditioned by the natural environment and ecology where the species live or grow. This law naturally selects the best adapted species to thrive and be propagated in that particular environment; resulting in an amazing array of abilities highlighted by Beatrix.

    Thank you Beatrix. I really enjoyed this post. It really opens up my mind.

  7. Pastor Antoinette Kass on Jun 20, 2016 at 1:13 am

    Dear Beatrix,

    Thank you for these amazing informations! Animals are, like you wrote, equal and have rights. We should never look down on them.

    I agree, dogs are very loveable and need time and care. I grew up with dogs and it was fun. Only 4 years ago, I have discovered my love for cats. They have their character but are very sweet and smart.

    I love the pictures!

    Thank You Rinpoche for creating such an amazing and educational platform via this blog!

  8. pammie yap on Jun 10, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    Thank you Bea for the lovely compilation.
    There were so many information that caught my attention so I dont know which one to start with.
    The most disturbing and pitiful are Chinese softshell turtles and Hyenas. Cannot imagine what karma to be born like that.
    The one I laughed at, was the seahorse. OMB!! I cannot imagine myself going that ‘fast’!
    I must have been a goldfish in my previous life and in this life, still a ‘goldfish’ trapped in a human body… lol
    All of them are unique and special. Whether they are animals or not, we should always respect and treat them well.

  9. Pastor Shin Tan on Jun 10, 2016 at 5:24 am

    Thank you Beatrix for these pictures and facts. Indeed there is so much that we (or rather I) do not know about these animals.

    It’s nice to have young people like you who care so much about animals, and I love these beautiful pictures very much!

    Animals are sentient beings are beings with consciousness and like us, deserve happiness and respect too.

  10. Patng on Jun 9, 2016 at 9:39 am

    Thank you for sharing in this article about the extraordinary friends on earth..i think there must be a reason for everything…why do birds have wings & fish have tails.? This makes me went in search for explanations…Why is that the ostrich eyes are so big ? Do you know that the ostrich eye is 5 cm in diameter and bigger than its brain ? …well the eyes is so big that it can easily see if there are predators around ….It’s also the same for giraffes with long neck so that it can see far to check for predators but with a long neck its advantage is that it can easily reach high up a tree for leaves to eat ..This article is really interesting and amazing.Thank you Beatrix.

  11. Jason on Jun 8, 2016 at 2:27 am

    Thanks Beatrix for posting this 80 animals photos. I can feel that they are in freedom. All this photos really help me gaining more knowledge on animal kingdom. I am so impressed by photo no 80,Chinese soft shell turtle because it can pee via mouth.
    We should treat animals like our family members.We must show compassion and kindness to animals. This is what we want in Kechara .
    Thanks Rinpoche.

  12. Fong on Jun 6, 2016 at 6:49 pm

    Thanks for the write-up. Reminds me of the old radio program “Kee Huat Fantastic Facts”.

    I like the one on scorpions – NO. 3. For someone who loves their alcohol, to be reborn as one would be such a nightmare. Imagine, one drop and you’re dead from your own folly.

    No. 35, the seahorse is a surprise. My assumption was that it would be quite a fast swimmer if it wanted to. I mean, it’s a sea ‘horse’ and in the cartoon “Aquaman” he rode a seahorse to battles and rescues. How when we are ignorant, we will believe anything and stick by it as sacred truth!

    There are so many others that are unique and interesting whilst some are scary. Goes to show the diversity of the animal kingdom or animal realm. All those unique qualities are what help them survive their environment.

    Thank you for sharing such interesting facts.

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Jun 7, 2016 at 1:33 am

      Hi Fong,

      If I’m not mistaken, the diversity is the result of our karma. All these animals have also had countless previous lives, and the unique combination of their karma has led them to take rebirth in various parts of the animal kingdom with different physicalities which have adapted to their environment.

      Can you imagine being stuck in the deepest darkest part of the ocean for decades like one of those deep sea angler fish (picture below) or in the cold and barren Artic as a polar bear? o_O

      And that’s in the animal kingdom! Even in the human realm, there are so many different forms of existence physically speaking. Some of are born without limbs, some are born with limbs but without intact mental faculties. Some are born in places where it is super hot, and some people are born in places where it is super cold.

      The fact we can live in a place where there are no climatic extremes, where we have physical and mental faculties mostly intact (to the point they don’t present obstacles to our learning) is incredible if you consider the very high chance we actually stood of being reborn in a place with weather extremes, physical disabilities or mental disabilities.

      We really should make the most of the chance we have and not make excuses to do more, because making excuses is just making obstacles for ourselves which we don’t need to have!

      Anyway, I kind of went off tangent haha this was a real neat post. I already knew a couple of these, like the one about the flamingo (something about their oesophagal muscles not being very strong), the flea and the elephant (they don’t have knees). But like you, I did also like the scorpion one. And the ligers and tigons one, though I think they are sterile because of the interspecies mating…just like how when donkeys and horses mate, their offspring are sterile too.

  13. Jutika Lam on Jun 5, 2016 at 11:54 am

    Going through this article and learning interesting facts about 80 different animals has certainly made my Sunday a great and knowledge full one.

    To be honest, a lot of the facts here surprised me such as the fact that a blue whale’s tongue is heavier than most elephants, sharks are immune to cancer, polar bear furs are actually not white and so many more!

    Animals are sentient beings who like us have feelings, if we hurt them they feel pain and if we treat them with love and care, they would feel loved.

    Thank you Beatrix for doing a very good research on these animals!

  14. Colin Tan on Jun 5, 2016 at 12:18 am

    Wow what a intensive search on 80 different animals. Have always been a avid lover on animal discovery channel and understand all about animals. There are one or two species shown in there that I never once seen before.

    In Tsem Rinpoche Blog we can practically learn almost everything.
    🙂

    Cool job. Keep it up Beatrix.

  15. wooishen on Jun 2, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Do not keep a pet if you feel that you’re not responsible enough or you do not have the time and commitment to do so. Be responsible….

    Is true they need more time to accompany them, walk, play, bath and etc….

    Not just keep inside cage, give foods and water only….

    Please treat animal equal…

    Thanks Beatrix Ooi for sharing…..

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Jun 6, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Yes Wooi Shen, I could not agree more! And in addition to what you’ve said, we should also try to avoid zoos as much as possible, and anywhere else that traps wild animals.

      If the animals were born and raised in captivity, that’s another story because they won’t be able to survive if they were released into the wild.

      But for animals who are captured and trapped in a zoo, they should’ve been left in the wild. It’s the best place to study and learn about them, which is their natural habitat.

      Thank you for your comment! I hope you will always keep speaking up for animal rights and help to raise awareness for responsible pet care among your friends and whoever else you meet!

  16. Wah Ying on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for the sharing. It’s such an interesting post on animals. The more we human know about the animals the more we feel how amazing they are. Haha, don’t ever think only human are special and amazing, or thinking of using animals for our interest – to work for us, to provide entertainment, for trasnportation, for medical experiment, as food and etc…

  17. becky on Jun 1, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing this interesting and informative post. 🙂
    There are many animals have their special characteristic that I know now after read your post.
    Amazing goats and octopus have rectangular pupils which allow them to see nearly 360 degrees around themselves. Octopuses have nine brains — one central brain, eight at the base of each arm, for movement control — and blood the color blue from a protein called hemocyanin.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the writers team.

  18. shelly tai on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:09 am

    Thank you Beatrix Ooi for such a informative write up about animals. We as a human I think for least of it we should respect all these animals who are very different from us at least we do not kill them because we are not the any being who live in this planet.

  19. Cynthia Lee on Jun 1, 2016 at 3:20 am

    Thank you, Beatrix. Learning about the animal kingdom got me thinking the sky is the limit. What we think is impossible is truly possible for some other beings.

    Example, I can’t imagine how certain animals such as the Arctic fox can survive temperatures as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit while I myself suffer at just 20 degrees. LOL. I guess this is because the human realm and animal realm is just different.

    As a human being, we have different limitations in physiques but not the mind. Animals cannot think in a cognitive manner like we do. Irregardless, animals do feel pain and emotions. They deserved to be treasured and left unharmed.

  20. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 12:06 am

    Good researched information, Beatrix. Many facts I didn’t know of until now. Some light comments instead of the usual boring ones. 😁
    Love,
    Dad

    #21 Sharks are immune to cancer.
    I read of this many years ago that scientists were trying to find out the secret. But I guess they are still unsuccessful or maybe commercial politics has the upper hand.

    #31 Starfish don’t die of old age.
    Then how or what do they die of? Being eaten by predators?

    一个人能够拥有些兴趣爱好是一件好事,但是也得看个人的喜欢程度有多深才能将自己的爱好延续下去,不然就造成伤害,也是徒劳无功。
    饲养宠物是一个责任,不是爱好,不是现在想要养就去买回来,不想要就把丢了这是非常不负责任,所以对动物都有感情,会感到开心,或是不开心,要人爱护,关心它们。
    您養的是一个生命,而不是一个爱好!要有责任把它们照顾好,不要遗弃它们,
    用仁爱之心善待生命,我们应该尊重所有的动物

    This is a very interesting article and thanks for sharing Beatrix. Never knew of so many capabilities that the animals have.

  23. Jill Yam on May 31, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    This is just truly amazing. Imagine each individual animals have their own ‘special ‘ characteristics.
    These are things which we didn’t know and it just blow your mind away on some of the nature of the animals.
    Can you imagine the Horror Frog breaking its own bones to create claws.
    Gold Fish has a memory of up to 5 months

    These is so awesome. With this post I’m sure more people can be more aware of their pets needs and give them the love.

    Thank you Beatrix for the interesting post.

  24. Stella Cheang on May 31, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    This is a truly amazing deck of fun facts about animals. I enjoy reading it very much as well as learning a great deal about animals that I never knew before. For example:
    1. Sharks cannot develop cancer – wow! I hope this is NOT the reason why people love shark fins.
    2. Oyster can change gender – what an ability!
    3. Octopuses have 9 brains – I wish we can too, then we can multitask better.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrix for this article. It is very entertaining.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    • Beatrix Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:10 am

      Dear Stella,

      I’m glad that you enjoyed reading the article, the animal kingdom is fulled with amazing creatures which some of them, we have not even heard of. I too find the octopus fact very interesting, if only we can have that too hehe!

  25. Frederick Law on May 31, 2016 at 3:05 am

    Thank you Beatrix for compiling so many cute animals with each of their characteristic and interesting facts not known by myself hehe.
    We should treat all animal as equal, as they same like us has feelings, shares similar DNA, and are intelligent.

    This article will be good for parents to show different animal facts, and teaching their children to love animals and treat each sentient being as equal.

    • Beatrix Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:00 am

      Dear Frederick,

      You’ve brought up a very good point there, parents should start educating their children about animals from a very young age to get them familiarised with the fact that animals are sentient beings too. They have not done anything to mankind and in my opinion, we should be fair and treat everyone living on this planet equally. 🙂

  27. Sofi on May 30, 2016 at 9:09 pm

    What an interesting article on things that I didn’t know about most of the animals. Imagine the Chinese soft-shell tortoise urinating through its mouth or getting poison by a bird (hooded Pitohui) or elephant shrew is actually related to the elephant. And most of all settling the argument of the Zebra being black with white stripes or white with black stripes.
    Thanks Beatrix for writing this fun article.

    • Beatrix Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 10:56 am

      Dear aunty Sofi,

  28. Yoke Chim Yap on May 30, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    若要我选擇养一种宠物,我会首选狗。
    小时候住在乡下地方,家里养了一隻菜狗,我们要去上学,需走一段好長的路才能到大路口,而它就会每天一大清早默默陪伴我们走到路口、看我们走远了!才回去,中午放学时,它又会準时守候在路口等我们回家,风雨不改l 直今我还是很怀念它,但愿它来世得人身,得聞佛法.其實动物你对它好,它们都能感受到.也不会出卖你,不管它是兇猛或馴良。那些喜欢吃野味的人,只要四脚朝天都殺来吃,我覚的不可思議,这些人并不晓的它们也会流血?也会痛?也有感觉?有一句偈语非常有意思「千百年来碗里羹,怨深似海悢难平,预知世上刀兵刧,但听夜半屠門声」。

    • Beatrix Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 10:52 am

      Yoke Chim,的確,動物是有靈性的,只要我們對它們好, 它們一定
      會感覺得到。 有時候, 動物會比那些不知感恩的人還來得好,因為至少它們不會做出甚麼傷天害理的事。 人類確實有很多地方必須向動物學習, 動物也是萬物之靈, 並沒有甚麼地位比誰高或類似的說法。謝謝妳的分享。:)

  30. Vinnie Tan on May 30, 2016 at 11:17 am

    Thank you Beatrix for these fun facts about these animals. The information is really cool. What I have never thought about is the information for the goldfish. That really shocked me. I always thought they only have the memory of 3 seconds.

    I am also shocked to see that the Chinese soft shell turtle pees from its mouth. I find that weird and slightly disgusting. But I guess what is considered as disgusting will be only be defined by how we perceive things. Thank you for sharing these interesting fun facts about the animals.

    • Beatrix Ooi on Jun 1, 2016 at 10:41 am

      Dear Vinnie,

      I used to think that about the goldfish too! It’s scary how myths can affect us. In society nowadays, we really can’t afford to follow other blindly, having knowledge is very crucial.

  31. Pastor Adeline on May 30, 2016 at 4:06 am

    Such an interesting post, Beatrix. There are so many interesting facts that never crossed my mind and I am glad you share them with us. I always remember that goldfish have a short memory few seconds, that’s why they can live in a small glass tank amusing themselves with the views which always seems new and interesting for them. I mean few seconds of memory means things are always new to them. Hence, we always use “a goldfish memory” on someone who had bad memory, hehe! Thank you kindly for sharing with us.

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 30, 2016 at 5:31 am

      Dear Pastor Adeline,

      I’m glad that the article was interesting, I have never knew that goldfish have such a long term memory span because what I have been told in the past was, goldfish’s memory span can only last up to 7 secs or so. I’m glad that the myth is debunked. 🙂

      • bengkooi on Jun 2, 2016 at 6:10 pm

        So now that we know goldfish have a 5 month memory, that little bowl seems extremely cruel…

  32. Boon on May 29, 2016 at 10:59 pm

  33. Julien Roth on May 29, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    This post was so interesting to read! One of my favourite posts for sure!

    I think for me, the most unbelievable fact that I didn’t know was that the snow leopard can jump up to 50 feet in a single jump. If I’m being honest I am not sure i believe this or not xD I mean, 50 feet is a long way up and i can’t see any animal that can do that. But i will search it up and get to the bottom of that.

    The second most interesting fact in the post was that ferrets sleep up to 20 hours a day. Thats the life i wish i could have! A life with so little responsibilities that i can sleep and sleep and sleep! How great would that be??? Couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time.

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 11:16 pm

      Dear Julien,

      I’m glad that you find this post interesting, I have too learnt a lot from it. The animal kingdom is just amazing, full of wonderful and beautiful creatures. Regarding the snow leopard, I too find it slightly impossible but apparently, they are that awesome! Ferrets are cute and yes, I agree that they have a pretty good life hehe!

    The star-nosed mole use its nose better known as the Eimer`s organs with which this hamster-sized mole feels its way around. With the help of its Eimer’s organs, it may be perfectly poised to detect seismic wave vibrations.The mantis shrimp has two types of mantis shrimp. 1 is the smasher,its punch is so fast that water moves out of the way .2 is the spear it has mantis like claws but upside down .It ambushes its prey by stabbing it.the mantis shrimp`s eyes move indenpendently .thank you for sharing

  36. Cecilia Goh on May 29, 2016 at 3:52 am

    Dear Beatrix

    Thank you for sharing this interesting articles. I am not an animal lover however i do not like to see animals in bad shape and ill treated. Once i was asked by my ex colleagues to have a dog as a companion. I said no as knowing my parents cannot accept it. Like what you said it is a responsibility and commitment as they are also sentient beings. They need care and love like all of us.

    Not knowing some of the existence till i read this articles of yours. Some of are huge , weird and scary.

    Keep it up.

    Rgds
    Cecilia Goh

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 4:46 am

      Hello Cecilia,

      I totally agree with what you have shared here, keeping a pet is a huge responsibility as it involves taking care something that’s alive, a sentient being. It’s definitely not something to be taken very lightly.

      I’m glad you find the article interesting, hope to see you around more often. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  37. Sharon Ong on May 29, 2016 at 1:04 am

    Dear Bea,

    Good job on this one. So many interesting facts that I didn’t know. Here’s one from me. Did you know that ostriches eat small pebbles/stones to help with their digestive system?

    I really like the one about sea otters holding hands while sleeping. So cute!

    Thank you for this post. I really enjoyed reading it. 🙂

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 4:43 am

      Dear aunty Sharon,

      Oh wow, I know some birds who eat pebbles to help with their digestion but I did not know that ostriches do the same thing as well. That’s amazing!

      I find the sea otters really cute as well, this shows that animals are just like us, they need love and companions.

      I’m glad you enjoyed reading the post, have a great weekend! 🙂

  38. Pema Thinley on May 29, 2016 at 12:36 am

    Thaank you so much Beatrix lah sharing such amazing facts, i learnt lots of new animals though. They are very mind blowing ones… creatures are created in unique ways. Some are really weird hehe. Thank you

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 4:40 am

      Dear Mr. Pema,

      I’m glad that you find the article interesting and educational, I myself have learnt a lot from this article. Animals are truly amazing creatures and yes, just likes humans, some are really weird hehehe! Have a great weekend! 🙂

  39. Pastor Niral Patel on May 28, 2016 at 10:06 pm

    Wow, the animal kingdom sure is absolutely fascinating! This page has so many interesting facts that i did not know about. Some of them however, i did, especially the one about the giraffe’s tongue. I remember a holiday in Kenya, during which i was able to feed a giraffe in the wild, and their tongues are really long and feel like sandpaper. That is one event that I’m not going to forget any time soon!

    I really like the picture and fact about the sea otters. It is incredible to see that they do this and is very cute to see. It shows that animals are sentient beings, something that we all need to remember as Buddhist practitioners.

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 4:37 am

      Giraffes do have very rough tongues! I remember when I was young, I went to the safari and there was a session where the public was allowed to feed the giraffes some bananas. When I saw their super long tongues, I backed down really quickly and did not dare to feed them. My brother did however, and the giraffe almost swallowed his hand, it was so funny hahaha!

      The sea otters are truly cute, I agreed with what you have written, this goes to show that animals do have feelings 🙂

      Glad you likes the article.

  40. May Ong on May 28, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    Like you, I also prefer dogs as my pets rather than any other animals. Since young, my family had dogs all our lives. We have received lots of protection from our dogs including their love and attention but taking care of them is huge responsibility that we cannot neglect, especially when we need to be away.

    Anyhow, I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the many weird characters you shared on other animals which I didn’t know existed.

    My particular favorites were ostrich roars like a lion. I would have mistaken them to a real lion’s roar. To get rid of scorpions were to place alcohol on them? Maybe not so cruel. Particularly cancer cannot affect sharks at all? Perhaps medical research can find out if that can help cure human cancer illness too. Lastly, the Chinese soft-shelled turtle can pee through its mouth? That’s rather grose.

    DO keep up your writing as this was an interesting article to learn about on ‘weirdness’ of animals.

    • Beatrix Ooi on May 29, 2016 at 4:31 am

      Thank you aunty May, I’m glad that you have enjoyed reading the article. I must say that the ostrich and shark ones were really interesting. It’d be exciting to hear an ostrich roar hehehe!

  41. samfoonheei on May 28, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    Dear Beatrix Ooi
    Thanks for sharing this interesting article.I didn’t know at all till i read it.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

    John is so brave and compassionate. He risk his life to save the rabbit and that shows he appreciate live very much despite it is an animal. Eventhough he lives in the street to beg for food but he never forgets his 2 pets a dog and a rabbit. He takes care of his pets with whatever he begs. Inspiring to all of us to never take things for granted and not abuse animals.

    I am also proud with the Ireland government in taking action to punish the 18 year old man who abuse and tried to kill the rabbit. This will create the awareness to all that this is a cruel action and that laws will be imposed against these people.

    Geshe Thupten Lama was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile and served as a school teacher from 1963 to 1994 for which he received high commendations from the Tibetan exile government. Shocking what they did to this old erudite master Geshe Thupten Lama after serving them for years.

    >>>Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?<<<
    Dear sincere dharma students around the world and friends, After the great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ‘eliminated’ by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama over three hundred years ago in Tibet, his reincarnation line was banned. That does not mean he stopped reincarnating as he continued in a string of high and beneficial lamas until present day, although he was not allowed to use his title and name. He has his main mind incarnation and many of his body, speech and activity incarnations also. His reincarnations certainly continued as confirmed by great beings such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Panchen Rinpoche, Scholar Lobsang Tamdin, etc. Read more… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/who-is-tulku-drakpa-gyeltsen

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Beautiful image of Vajrayogini indeed with shimmering jewels offered to her. Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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
