Dear students and friends,

We are often so busy nowadays that we often find ourselves grabbing a quick bite from our usual haunts. I’m sure that many of you reading this are nodding your head in agreement! Hehe

Although it may seem acceptable if it’s not too frequent… however, we never really know how much ‘convenient foods’ we eat until we sit down and really think about it…

Below is a very interesting article that one of my students, Clifford, shared with me. There will be many times when we are too busy, and grabbing a quick bite from fast food restaurants will seem to be the easiest solution – but do avoid the bad and dangerous foods listed below. In the long term, it will take a toll on your health. I want all of you to be healthy always. With a healthy body, it is much easier for us to use it for the benefit of others. We should never take our health for granted…

Please do read the article below and educate both yourself and all of your loved ones on the dangers of eating these types of processed meat. This information is not made up by the writer but has research evidence to support the given findings.

Please share this with everyone you care about so that they can make the right choices with what they eat!

Processed Meats Declared Too Dangerous for Human Consumption

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.

Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and virtually all red meat used in frozen prepared meals. They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite. This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body. And this leads to a sharp increase in cancer risk for those who eat them.

A 2005 University of Hawaii study found that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent. Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent. These are alarming numbers. Note that these cancer risks do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats. They only appear in people who regularly consume processed meat products containing sodium nitrite.

Sodium nitrite appears predominantly in red meat products (you won’t find it in chicken or fish products). Here’s a short list of food items to check carefully for sodium nitrite and monosodium glutamate (MSG), another dangerous additive:

  • Beef jerky
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Hot dogs
  • Sandwich meat
  • Frozen pizza with meat
  • Canned soups with meat
  • Frozen meals with meat
  • Ravioli and meat pasta foods
  • Kid’s meals containing red meat
  • Sandwich meat used at popular restaurants
  • Nearly all red meats sold at public schools, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and theme parks

If sodium nitrite is so dangerous to humans, why do the FDA and USDA continue to allow this cancer-causing chemical to be used? The answer, of course, is that food industry interests now dominate the actions by U.S. government regulators. The USDA, for example, tried to ban sodium nitrite in the late 1970′s but was overridden by the meat industry. It insisted the chemical was safe and accused the USDA of trying to “ban bacon.”

Today, the corporations that dominate American food and agricultural interests hold tremendous influence over the FDA and USDA. Consumers are offered no real protection from dangerous chemicals intentionally added to foods, medicines and personal care products.

You can protect yourself and your family from the dangers of processed meats by following a few simple rules:

  1. Always read ingredient labels.
  2. Don’t buy anything made with sodium nitrite or monosodium glutamate.
  3. Don’t eat processed meats served by restaurants, schools, hospitals, hotels or other institutions.

And finally, eat more fresh produce with every meal. There is evidence that natural vitamin C found in citrus fruits and exotic berries (like camu camu) helps prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines, protecting you from the devastating health effects of sodium nitrite in processed meats. The best defense, of course, is to avoid eating processed meats altogether.

    It is very scary to think of what would people or and company will do in order to gain benefits for themselves, especially to witness them with our own eyes. Although I am seldom eat those processed meat but I think I often exposed my self to those foods with MSG contain such as snacks , noodles etc I will try to reduce eating those foods with MSG contain/ Sodium Nitrite. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this article and bring awareness to everyone 🙏

  2. Samfoonheei on Aug 17, 2017 at 11:37 am

    Processed foods are really bad for our health with all cancer-causing chemical used.I used to enjoyed processed foods during those days but not anymore as i knew the danger of it from reading articles years back. I have too discouraged my children from taking it since.
    Its really bad and you would not have taken it after watching videos or knowing how it was processed….unhygienic methods and the killings of chickens or whatever so.
    To go on vegetarian is the right choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and your concern for those taking these
    processed foods still. I have shaved it on FB to let my friends know about the danger.

  3. Vivian Ong on Apr 21, 2017 at 6:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is really an eye-opener for me. Never thought that so many of the food that we previously eat are dangerous. Of course now I have take on less and less meat already which I felt better for the body. May others also take on less for health reasons and to avoid killing.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    I know of at least two people who are currently fighting colorectal cancer. I’m certain processed meats are the culprit.

  5. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 14, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    This is quite scary, can you imagine taking in all of the chemicals into our bodies? Why choose to eat foods that will put your life into risks? The scariest food is sausages, a friend of my mother who works in a factory once told her that sausages and nuggets are made up of animal intestines, well basically every single part of the animal. Hoe scary and disgusting is that…?

  6. tong sun sun on Dec 27, 2013 at 5:08 am

    我常常自嘲我们这一代人往生后一定是木乃伊!食物里的添加剂,防腐剂,基因改造。。。。。等等都是让我们身体承受不了得,可是我们往往都被这种食物的味道,颜色所吸引,而常常大块朵颐不顾后果。希望大家多留意珍惜自己的身体。

  7. Wah Ying on Dec 27, 2013 at 2:05 am

    If you really wish to have a healthy lifestyle or at least get sick less especially at the old age 🙁 , then eating less hawker food or less eating outside will be a wise choice. Even for those who cook regularly, need to avoid having too much processed food on our plate and avoid food you can’t tell by first glance what are the ingredients it made of.

    Recently I visited to an organic farm, and the farmer told me that “unfortunately, we buy and eat from our ‘eyes'”. He is referring to consumers are not using their knowledge or to acquire knowledge on what food they are taking, instead, make decision purely or mostly by food’s appearance.

    I believe empower ourselves with knowledge on food we consume, with strong consumer awareness and take the responsibility to what we eat is what we are, what we will be; then a healthier self, society and nation is possible.

  8. Ck siah on Dec 11, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    謝謝仁波切的分享,可见現在的食物添加化學剂已经层出不穷和泛滥。可说已经达到危害人体健康水平。但很多商家为了个人利益,忘了良心责备,所以也草管人命,照常经营。但大家忘了,往往害人害自己。切记!

  9. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 4, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this information. This somehow remind me of this commercial, that has uncover the truth of the industry these days. From this game it has a slogan that caught my attention, “Cultivate a better world”.

  10. Edward Ooi on Oct 4, 2013 at 1:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche, it is a great thing that I’m vegetarian so that I don’t have to beware of this kind of things. I sure hope that the meats that I consumed over the 13 years will be cleaned off my body so that I won’t have so much problems like I used to have.

  11. Julien Roth on Aug 2, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for posting up this information. I hope that many people see this post and change their mind about processed meat. I myself, didn’t realise how this was so bad for you. But now i do. Thank you for the information.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 31, 2013 at 4:00 am

    Processed food is so pervasive in many developed countries around the world and many people in those countries have diseases related to their consumption of their food. Cancer are most pervasive in rich countries as compared to poorer countries whereby the poorer countries rely less on processed foods.

  13. pavara on Jul 25, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Meat should never be eaten even if it is not harmful.
    Nowadays a lot of meat gets eaten just because of us.
    It would be great if no one ate meat in the past then no one would know about meat and no one would eat it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this informative post.

  14. Boon on Jul 21, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche sharing this article with us. Although I am seldom eat those processed meat but I think I often exposed my self to those foods with MSG contain such as snacks , noodles etc I will try to reduce eating those foods with MSG contain/ Sodium Nitrite. I will share this news with those whom I know them as well.

  15. Cliff on Jul 18, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I am really glad that I’m a vegetarian, the meat industry and even the food industry has always been finding ways to improve the image of their products and at a very cheap cost of production but never really taking into consideration what the damage it does to the human body. As long as they don’t kill anyone in a short term basis they are free to go. Being vegetarian is one of the answers but still i feel its better to grow your own food than purchase manufactured products from the super/hypermarket. You do not know what the food industry these days put into their products for sale. Best to avoid sodium nitrate at this point. Thank you Rinpoche for spreading the awareness and I hope this would provide yet another valid good reason for people to become a vegetarian. The meat industry does not only hurt animals they’re also hurting the consumers. Our health is very important and yes many of us take it for granted, we need to take better care of our health. I hope Rinpoche’s health is well.

  16. Jutika Lam on Jul 17, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    OMB!! All this while I never knew that Processed foods like sausages, beef jerky, bacon and such contains with sodium nitrite or monosodium glutamate.

    Though I know that eating to much of Processed food is potential dangerous I never knew that it could get this bad.

    Looking back I am glad that I rarely eat Processed food such as the above which contains with sodium nitrite or monosodium glutamate that could possible lead to cancer.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with me.

    Love
    Jutika

  17. Leu Chong Hin -kH (JB) on Jul 13, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    現代的食物添加化學成份已經是沒什麼爭議了,人已經習慣性接受食物制成品的味道和口感。可能是忽略人為什麼需要進食?在我的觀念吃除了不讓肚子挨餓,重點是要從食物攝取對身體有用營養素。讓身體健康。選擇食物只為了滿足自己口欲而忽略營養的重要性,最后吃虧的還是自己。謝謝上師分享。

  18. Han on Jul 13, 2013 at 10:58 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this useful post. I realized even as a vegetarian need to eat healthily because there are many processed vegetarian food in the market. Would like to share below infor with all.

    What to eat instead?

    If you want foods that help prevent rather than cause cancer, turn more to what grows from the ground. Eat more veggies, fruits, and whole grains: specifically leafy greens (kale especially), garlic, tomatoes, blueberries, mushrooms, and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, etc.). Also good are sweet potatoes, soy products, nuts, avocados, and rasperries.

  19. Raymond Lee on Jul 13, 2013 at 9:37 am

    its true…its dangerous to our health.eating processed meats is bad for our health. i always prefer vegetarian . HEALTH IS WEALTH.

  20. Bryan Ho on Jul 13, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Well another good reason to be a vegetarian. With the technology getting more advance day by day, a lot of people are using it to benefit themselves, but it brought harm to others. People greed also becoming more stronger, a lot of business man are care more about their pocket instead of lives, even human lives. In order for themselves to get the money, it’s ok to put people lives on danger.
    I think this must be one of the reason why Rinpoche wanted Kechara Forest Retreat to manifest as soon as possible.
    It’s very easy to influence the young generation, but if we give them compassion, wisdom, care and love since young, they will becoming someone beneficial to the society. We have the duty to let our next generation know that this world is not only about money. Hence, Kechara Forest retreat will be working as a retreat center where we promote vegetarian, natural healing, compassion, care and love.
    By feeding all these positive information to our younger generations, I’m sure it will bring more benefit than just feeding them sausage.

  21. justin cheah on Jul 12, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Thank you for sharing this article Rinpoche. It is scary to know these type of convenient food would bring so much harm to our body. Conclusion to the public would be avoiding all these food items as they contain and retain toxics in them. Hope this article will help more people realise the importance of being a vegetarian.

  22. Sharon Saw on Jul 12, 2013 at 12:54 am

    This article is an eye-opener and i will share it because so many people don’t realise how poisonous processed meats are. Of course it is healthiest if people go vegetarian, especially when we keep reading about the amount of antibiotics in meat, and that a lot of battery animals are sickly and people are actually consuming diseased meats. Even fish from the ocean are not safe as the seas are polluted, and those such as farmed salmon have been genetically modified which can have an adverse effect on humans. People may not be driven by compassion to stop eating meat, but if people still want to eat meat, at the very least, if they are concerned about their health, they can learn to steer clear of the meats listed here.

  23. Patsy on Jul 11, 2013 at 6:08 am

    Processed food are so unhealthy and bad for our body. There’s a lot of flavoring, preservatives and chemicals in processed food which are cancer causing agents. It is advisable to go on a meatless diet as it is a much more healthier. Besides that, it is a more compassionate diet as less animals will suffer.

  24. Angelshooi on Jul 11, 2013 at 12:07 am

    Yes, it’s very scary to know about how processed food are made, especially to witness them with our own eyes. I have been told by one of my friends many years ago, who is a butcher that has been supplying meat to one of the burger factories in Malaysia. He told me not to eat burgers, and explained to me how are burgers made. From what I understand, the burgers are made and processed in a very horrible way, it’s very unhygienic and unhealthy.

    I certainly do not encourage people to buy or eat processed food.
    The best is still to eat more vegetables, as there are no risks. 🙂

  25. henry ooi on Jul 10, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    I think the best thing is to eat freshly cooked food especially the greens grown in our own garden. What if you don’t have your own garden? Come to Kechara Forest Retreat 🙂 Our veggies are pesticide free! Grown with TLC by our own Green Team.

  26. AdelineTan on Jul 10, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    I totally agreed with this blog Rinpoche is sharing with everyone. I have stopped taking processed meat and canned food or soups with meat inside, it is very bad for our health. To maintain a healthy life style is to become vegetarian. Take more fresh vegetables and fresh fruits, cook your own meals and drink plenty of water.

  27. Adrian Chow on Jul 10, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    It is very scary to think of what would people or and company will do in order to gain benefits for themselves. Risking others life for our own benefits. Sounds really wrong to me. At times when i passed by one of those outlets at night, i could see a lot of children with the parents still paying a visit to these restaurant even it is late at night. What is bothering me is the children nowadays have developed the taste bud of these kind of food. Maybe Kechara Oasis can have an awareness campaign in order promote vegetarian food and the benefits of having all natural food at the schools and colleges. It might make them realise the risk of having these food if consume frequently.

    With folded hands,
    Thank You Rinpoche

  28. tenzin llhamo on Jul 9, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    Its really scary to read about the danger of eating processed meat! And thank goodness we have all these health conscious, caring people who carry out tests and proving them scientifically. Many people do not believe in having a healthier life by not eating so much meat but do research and see the facts. In the long run, it brings so much sufferings to our body by stuffing all the junk and unhealthy food. Who suffers but ourselves? Live a healthy and kind life!

  29. grace (KHJB) on Jul 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing, this is really useful info to keep away unhealthy food.it is true that never that things for granted

  30. Jace Chong on Jul 9, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    Nowadays convenience is everything, in our daily life, we just grab whatever is convenient. But how many people can stop and think about, the common food that we see like sausage, bacon might not healthy to be consumed.

    I am fortunate that I am not eating processed meat anymore as I am a vegetarian now. See, vegetarian is cool! Help us avoid those poison =)

  31. jp on Jul 9, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    It’s scary to realise the country who fights for human rights and democracy, being the police of the world can allow this to continue. I guess there is no country that’s free of corruption.

    Now that we are aware of the dangers of consuming sodium nitrite and monosodium glutamate, we should inform others as well.

    I read that there is less harm to our body eating vegetables than eating meat. This is because meat retains the toxins from the animal feed more than vegetables from the pesticides.

  32. MayOng on Jul 9, 2013 at 11:40 am

    This is an alarming growth rate of 67% from eating processed meats and the risk of pancreatic cancer and all it takes was to take 50 grams of them daily to increase the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent.

    I will definitely stick to home made food from fresh produce instead with plenty of water or soup to go down with from now on.

  33. sweekeong on Jul 9, 2013 at 9:25 am

    This is as bad as taking cigarette if not worst. Both are cancer causing. The meat is manipulated so much it is should be called artificially man-made sausage, hotdog, whatever. If we care and love ourselves and our loved ones it is our duty to not eat meat and not taking cigarette. Both actions will ruin our body in the long term. When we get sick we need money for treatment. We end up working for money to fix our body. It is the same as taking poison, just different kind of poisons. At the same time it gave others the impression that it is okay to eat meat and smoke. It is not okay to eat meat and smoke then we ourselves avoid it totally.

  34. Vinnie Tan on Jul 9, 2013 at 4:17 am

    This is such an interesting article. Didn’t know that some of the food that may look and taste good be so bad for our bodies.

    This really shows that we can’t trust our eyes in this community now.

  35. James Long on Jul 9, 2013 at 12:53 am

    这真的很恐怖,我们自己完全暴露在危险之中。虽然蔬菜有农药,可是比这些有防腐剂、添加剂的“不烂之肉” 好很多了!

  36. Lucas Roth on Jul 8, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    This is so true, and the solution is a vegetarian diet and that saves lives and is healthier!!!! But i did not know some of these but i am glad i do and i can tell my friends who eat mean and tell them to beware. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  37. beatrix ooi on Jul 8, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    This is so scary! Since young, I’ve been told that burger patties are made from very disgusting ingredients such as chicken’s guts, hearts and in some cases, intestines. It makes me feel sick even though i’m just writing them out. Before I was a vegetarian, I used to love eating frozen sausages, i’m really surprised that they contain substances that would cause cancer, i’m glad that i’m a vegetarian now, so do not have to worry about it. The most easiest way to prevent ourselves against sicknesses is, try to eat more veges and cut down on meat. We have nothing to lose anyways.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  38. Lim Tat Ming on Jul 8, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    It is sad that even the US government regulators had no control over the regulation of substances like sodium nitrate used in food processing. How else could the consumers protect themselves from the danger of such chemicals added in the food products?

    The USDA had tried to ban sodium nitrate in the late 1970’s but to no avail. For 43 years since then consumers had been ‘contaminated’ with this dangerous sodium nitrate in processed red meat! Can you believe it?

    The authorities can do better to establish greater control and regulation over the food processing industry for the sake of the consumers’ well-being. No private commercial organisations should override the government regulators!

    The safest way for consumers is to avoid processed red meat altogether!

  39. sarahyap on Jul 8, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Processed food has always been very bad for health. It not only have so much preservatives and chemicals in it, but the ‘meat’ that they use are also substandard… Many of the carcasses is not even cleaned and in many cases, these animals have tumors all over the body, all of which is just added into the meat processor to produce these hotdogs, burger patties etc. Have you ever wondered why these food are so cheap? That’s the reason.

    As it is, already proven that consuming meat is very unhealthy for the body, and it’s even worst if we consume these processed meat. The best solution to this? Just go vegetarian. Not only it is healthier, it is also compassionate dining that harms no beings intentionally.

  40. Felix Kong on Jul 8, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this important knowledge. Since unable control them to use sodium nitrite, we need to be smart to choose the right food. To be vegetarian is the best choice .

  41. tenzinkhenchen on Jul 8, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important article. Thank goodness I am vegetarian and I do not have to worry about processed meats. By eating meat, processed or not, you still need to kill and negative karma arises. So, go vegetarian!

  42. Andrew James Boon on Jul 8, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    It is very scary that our life and world is filled with these so called fast “food”. How can it be called food in the first place. It truly is remarkable (and not in a good way!) that with our intellect we have found ways to preserve food and even “mimic” how food should taste or look like… And all this does is cause us more suffering for those so called time saving moments!

    If only we use our intellect for the greater good to benefit others and not merely to conceive of money making schemes. We can fly to the moon and back and we cannot find a way to feed our fellow mankind? Something wrong with this picture for sure.

    Perhaps the science fiction movies of the 80’s that conceptualized capsules as “food” sustenance is not all that far fetched after all. That in itself is scary!

  43. Edward ooi on Jul 8, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, This is so scary. I know that chicken sausage is made out of chickens guts but I didn’t know the food that was written on above contains nitrosamines that causes cancer. I used to take this kind of meat before I became a vegetarian and to think of it, I feel like vomiting right now.

  44. Jessica Yap on Jul 8, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    Scary! This kind of articles only further reinforces my choice to be a vegetarian. We all know that fast food is bad for us. But how many of us actually cares about our health until we fall sick?
    When our body is healthy, we are able to do more and even more so if we’re serving the Dharma. We would be able to benefit more people.

    Thank you for sharing, Clifford
    and thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us..
    May Rinpoche be well and healthy always!

    Shelly tai on 8 July 2013 at 5pm
    After reading this blog post I think the best is to be vegetarian. That is what Rinpoche said we need to take care our health in order to benefits others I think all the school should not sell this process meat in their canteen because most of kids love to eat process meat like sausages for breakfast. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this information with us.

  46. Edern Tan on Jul 8, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting such caring article. After reading this article then i realised that how unhealthy am I now. I am also very fortunate to now about this at this young age thanks alot Rinpoche

    Gendun Gyatso the Second Dalai Lama was born to in a noble family. His father was a well-known yogic practitioner. Gendun Gyatso was a special child ,at the age of four he could remembered his past lives and told his parents he wished to live in the Tashilhunpo monastery. He could even told his parents, his birth name and his father was Lobsang Drakpa, which was Tsongkapa’s ordination name. .At age of eleven he was recognized as the reincarnation of Gendun Drupa, the first Dalai Lama, and was enthroned at Tashi Lhunpo monastery. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this biography of the second Dalai Lama.

    It is a really huge place. Can’t imagine that all items are gift to others. Rinpoche has showed us that when we give, we create the cause to receive offering as well. This is the nature of karma. Be generous and compassion to all. Thank you Rinpoche for your care and love to everyone.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Drub who was identified as an emanation of bodhisattva of compassion. He was born the son of a nomadic farmers and there’s a legend about his birth where a large black raven protect him from intruders, crows and wild vultures. The black raven an emanation of Mahakala was told . He lived the life of a shepherd until the age of seven showing early inclination for a religious life. He was sent to the monastery and studied under many great famous scholars and was a student of the Je Tsongkhapa . He was posthumously given the title of First Dalai lama. He remained the abbot of Tashilhunpo Monastery until his death.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short biography of Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen. Amazing… Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen has a very good memory as he can mastered eight volumes of works that he taught and has given oral texts commentary. He would recite the mantras of Avalokitesvara and Manjushri thousands of times each day. He did serve as a teacher to numerous abbots of Gelug monasteries in Lhasa too. Inspiring post of a great master.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for sharing such a beautiful Buddha image and prayer. There are many stories about practitioners who have very strong faith in what they practice and ultimately, they gain attainments from that single practice. The nun was very kind to write this prayer and give us the opportunity to practice so we can be benefited from it as well. Her result proved that prayer and mantra are powerful, but we must have faith.

    While we are still alive, we should be preparing for our death. Accumulate good karmas and merits which we can bring with us to our next life. Good food, good car, big house, nice handbags are things we enjoy now but cannot bring with us when we die.

    How often do we do something virtuous? When we are free, we like to go shopping, meeting up with friends, eating, drinking, doing sports or traveling. All these activities don’t bring us long-term benefits, the benefits we enjoy after we are dead.

    For Malaysians, due to Tsem Rinpoche’s kindness, we are very fortunate to have a holy and beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Bentong to let us accumulate merit and purify our negative Karma. These people gathered in KFR to do something virtuous together, how wonderful!

    Interesting article …..Professor Reginald Ray shares about the importance and impact rituals mainly for westerners or non believer or non Buddhist. For many Westerners , they tend to view unseen beings as superstition . I do believe of that unseen beings do exist. They are always around us and we should keep in mind that as long as we do not disturb them , respect them they will do no harm in return. Ritual is a way of communicating with beings who really are out there . In Tibetan Buddhism, ritual is used in relation both to the seen and the unseen worlds. Buddhism is a path of mind transformation., meditation, visualization and so forth.
    Professor Reginald Ray explained a very deep insight of Tibet Buddhism , the traditional Tibetans and Western cultures.
    Well I have still lot more to learn from this post and I will read again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this sums up the core concepts of Tibetan Buddhism.

    There are many festivals of different cultures being celebrated in Malaysia. For examples, the Indian festival Thaipusam, Chinese New Year, Muslim Hari Raya, to name a few.

    The more we are developed and advanced, the more we are exposed to harmful elements. For examples, the radiation from the technology devices, dust, carbon monoxide, chemicals found in the household products, etc. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of these harmful elements naturally without using chemicals. Plants like English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, Ficus and many more are good to purify our living environment. Some of then can be put indoor, some are planted outdoor. These plants are ideal to green up our environment and at the same time serve as a purifier.

    This is a great news! New Zealand has officially made it illegal to use animals in research and testing, people who are involved in animal cruelty cases will be prosecuted. This new law is passed on the basis that animals can experience positive and negative emotions too. Even though animals can’t talk but they can feel the pain, they have fear in them too.

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.

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

You wipe my tears, embracing me with your coral hued arms and with a motherly tender smile I feel we are lifting off the ground. To go home. I feel light after you embraced me and my body is becoming rainbow-like.~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
