For most people, probably the first time they ever saw someone driven to self-immolation to defend their beliefs was during the Viet Nam War.

Back then, a Buddhist monk by the name of Venerable Thich Quang Duc calmly entered meditation as he burned to death. He was protesting the persecution of Buddhists in his country Viet Nam, and when Americans saw it, they were totally shocked by the sight. It later helped to compel the American government to withdraw their support for the Vietnamese government of the time.

Over the years, this method of protest has been adopted by the Tibetans but unfortunately, with much less success. In the case of Venerable Duc, it only took one monk to trouble the American President’s conscience – upon seeing the photo of Venerable Duc self-immolating, President John F. Kennedy remarked that,

“…no news picture in history has generated so much emotion around the world as that one.”

Yet with the Tibetans, 152 have taken their own lives and still the international community remains unmoved. To me, this is extremely sad. Buddhists are taught that one of our core precepts is to refrain from killing, no matter how big or small the life. If you remember the movie Kundun, one of the famous scenes was that of Tibetans picking out worms from the soil as they constructed the Dalai Lama’s movie theatre in Tibet. So I would have expected Tibetans, who are Buddhist by culture and birth, to abide by this very strongly. The fact so many Tibetans can overlook one of their cardinal percepts leads me to think a couple of things:

  1. No one educated them that the self-immolations are not gaining the desired effect. They have somehow become misinformed (whether deliberately or not) into thinking the world will one day react once enough self-immolations occur.
  2. There is a dilution in the importance the new generation places on their Buddhist culture and values. They are giving up centuries-held culturally-ingrained precepts, in favour of short-term political goals.

Yet, none of this confuses me as much as why the Tibetan leadership have remained absolutely silent over the matter. How can any leadership with a conscience allow their people to keep taking their own lives, and not say or do anything to stop it? Does it not hurt them to see so many of their own people dying in this manner? Do they not feel any guilt for failing to make political progress so much so that Tibetans feel self-immolations are such a necessity?

It also disappoints me to know that His Holiness the Dalai Lama has had to witness this 152 times, and the Tibetan leadership STILL remains silent. How many more people have to die before the Tibetan leaders say enough is enough, and they speak up to stop it all? After all, the Central Tibetan Administration have been VERY creative in the way they have suppressed Dorje Shugden people. Do not get me wrong, I am not asking for potential self-immolators to be hurt or segregated like how Dorje Shugden people are. I would never wish that on anybody. However, there are many ways in which the Tibetan leadership can discourage self-immolations (which Tsem Rinpoche previously outlined in his article about Reuters here). So how come the Tibetan leaders are not doing anything to deter potential self-immolators?

In fact instead of stopping them, the leadership encourages them by praising them, celebrating them, lauding their so-called ‘feats’, building memorials to them… I am sorry and I mean no disrespect but personally, I would have put the funds spent on building memorials and lighting butterlamps towards building schools, training good teachers, constructing hospitals, getting the best medical equipment and so on. Why not focus on how we can improve the lives of the living instead of encouraging people to essentially commit suicide? How illogical that the Tibetan leadership always chooses the latter option.

In the bigger picture, no one understands the pain and desperation of the self-immolators better than Dorje Shugden people who have to go through it with double intensity. First, like other Tibetans, Dorje Shugden practitioners who are Tibetan also feel the pain of not being in their homeland. On top of that, unlike other Tibetans, they also suffer a second source of pain and loss of dignity because they are kicked out and segregated from the Tibetan exiled community due to their Dorje Shugden practice.

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has issued a statement about the self-immolations and it was published on Reuters.

Wishing to prevent more unnecessary deaths and suffering, Tsem Rinpoche issued a statement about the self-immolations, and how the Tibetan leadership’s silence over this is unusual given they have spent 22 years suppressing Shugden practitioners. It was first published by Reuters and now Digital Journal, a Canadian-based Internet news service, has published it too. Originally established in 1998 as a technology and gadget magazine, over time they have evolved to become a global online hub for citizen journalism. These days, they publish both professional contributions and user-submitted content. Of course, all user-submitted content has to be approved by them so if the news somehow risks their journalistic integrity or reputation, Digital Journal is not going to publish it.

So that is the situation we find ourselves in – Tsem Rinpoche had good intentions to make such a statement, and Digital Journal allowed for the statement to be published, feeling it would somehow interest or benefit their readers. And yet, despite all of this, Tsem Rinpoche’s statements have now been used to attack Tsem Rinpoche himself. Since the publication of the first piece on Reuters, the attacks have intensified, with signs they are being coordinated. They have come from all quarters, ranging from anonymous pro-Tibet accounts all the way up to notable personalities like Prof Robert Thurman. My question is, why would anyone want to attack a person for trying to save lives by advising others that self-harm and suicide via self-immolation is not the correct solution?

Attached here is just some example of Prof Robert Thurman harasses and degrades Tsem Rinpoche and his students. If there is really no ban, then what are all his tweets about?

I always find it a little strange because if there is no ban on Dorje Shugden like the Tibetan leadership claims, then why are all of their supporters reacting so strongly to Tsem Rinpoche’s statements? Some of them spend hours criticising Tsem Rinpoche for his practice of Dorje Shugden, or denigrating and deriding my teacher for his opinions. Surely, ban or no ban, it is up to Tsem Rinpoche to issue whatever statements he wishes, and to choose whatever practice he wants to rely on. The fact people act like there is a ban whilst simultaneously claiming there is none, actually reflects poor communication from the leadership.

So I am sorry but I am going to have to say this, and it is not a truth that is very pleasant — it all boils down to poor leadership.

  1. It was poor leadership that led to the split of the Gelug community over the Dorje Shugden issue.
  2. Poor leadership resulted in the Jonangpas being denied parliamentary representation, even though they are an officially-recognised religious denomination in Tibet.
  3. Poor leadership led to the split of the Karma Kagyu community over the Karmapa issue.
  4. Poor leadership resulted in the many scandals we have seen plaguing the Tibetan leadership as of late, ranging from accusations of sexual assault all the way up to money laundering and embezzlement.
  5. Similarly, it is now poor leadership that has led Tibetans to feel they lack the opportunity and outlet to express their frustrations, therefore resorting to self-immolations.

I thank Digital Journal for publishing the statement and I hope in doing so, someone reads Tsem Rinpoche’s words and is dissuaded from taking their own life. I also thank Digital Journal for shining a light on the misgovernance and poor leadership that has potentially irrevocably damaged what is actually a very beautiful community which has produced and nurtured incredible great masters that benefit the world. I hope that as time passes, more Tibetans are dissuaded from this horrific act, and the Tibetan leadership starts to act in the interests of their people, by dissuading them from self-immolating and giving them other options for speaking up.

Addendum

Central Tibetan Administration’s Website

Below is a screenshot of Tibet.net, which is the Tibetan leadership’s website. In it, they have a section with “information” about Dorje Shugden which is designed to promote hatred, negativity and direct vulgarities towards Shugden practitioners. What kind of democratic leadership has a section like this on their site targeting a religious group? Imagine the uproar there would be if the American or Canadian, or any other democratic government had sections like this on their site for the public!

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Website

This is a screenshot of DalaiLama.com which is the official website of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. When this section exists on His Holiness’ website, it actually emboldens Tibetans to discriminate against and segregate Shugden practitioners. This section is basically the Dalai Lama’s ‘endorsement’ of such behaviour; when anti-Shugden individuals see this, they think it is okay to segregate against the practice “because the Dalai Lama said so”. I don’t think the Dalai Lama would agree with this but the webmaster and shadow writers behind his website should not put this type of anti-Dorje Shugden section which subscribes to discrimination against a group because of religion. In the 21st century, this is not fitting of a great spiritual leader like His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Do not discriminate tolerate; is the way to go.

If the Dorje Shugden ban is just advice and not a ban, then why is a section like this necessary on any website?

Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s Resolution Stating Government Employees Should Not Rely on Dorje Shugden

In 1996, the Tibetan leadership passed a resolution stating that all departments (and ergo their employees) should not rely on Dorje Shugden (point 8). The resolution also stated that individuals who do engage in its worship will harm the Dalai Lama’s life and the so-called Tibetan cause. That being the case, how will anyone within the Tibetan settlements and government be able to openly engage in Dorje Shugden practice after that, if their worship has been widely labelled as anti-Dalai Lama, anti-CTA and treasonous? To openly practice after that will leave them open to criticism, vulgarities, harassment and discrimination, as Dorje Shugden practitioners have been for the last 20 years. So they will be left with three options: to give up the practice (which many will not do), to practice secretly, or to give up their jobs.

Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s Resolution Naming Dorje Shugden Practitioners as Criminals in History

This is a screenshot of tibet.net, the Central Tibetan Administration’s official website, which shows the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s unanimous resolution dated 17 March 2014 naming Dorje Shugden practitioners as criminals in history (point 3, paragraph 2).

The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile passed a resolution on 17 March 2014 naming all Dorje Shugden practitioners as criminals in history.

The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile passed a resolution on 17 March 2014 naming all Dorje Shugden practitioners as “criminals in history”. On what basis can the Tibetan leadership condemn all Dorje Shugden believers, including the elderly, infirm, young, and those not of Tibetan nationality, as criminals?

 

VIDEO: Dalai Lama bans Dorje Shugden practice
and expels monks

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was recorded in Drepung Monastery in 2008 clearly stating that those who refused to give up their Dorje Shugden practice should be expelled from the monasteries. His Holiness even said that if people found it difficult to fulfill this instruction, that they should say that the Dalai Lama told them to expel Dorje Shugden practitioners.

My question is this: if giving up Dorje Shugden practice is just advice, and it is up to us who we wish to rely on, then why are there such heavy repercussions for people who choose to keep the practice? As a result of His Holiness saying this, thousands of Shugden monks were expelled from the monasteries, and were forced to set up their own monasteries where they would be able to continue their Dorje Shugden practice.

 

VIDEO: Gaden Monastery Attacked

Since the inception of the Dorje Shugden ban 20 years ago, the CTA (Central Tibetan Administration) continues to organize a hateful campaign against Dorje Shugden practitioners. In doing so, the Tibetan leadership has gone against the very core teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama on compassion and tolerance and thereby, misled the world over the nature of their activities. The Tibetan leadership pursues huge sponsorship and financial aid from the West in order to run its operations but they actually channel these funds towards campaigns that suppresses religious freedom within the Tibetan communities through various means to instigate violent suppression against Dorje Shugden practitioners.

This video footage shows clearly how Dorje Shugden practitioners have lived their lives in fear for the last 20 years due to the ban on Dorje Shugden. Although the Tibetan leadership and supporters have continued to use various violent and underhanded means to segregate and discriminate Dorje Shugden practitioners, the practitioners themselves have not fought back. Instead, they continue to uphold their peaceful reliance on their Dorje Shugden lineage lamas and especially the practices and teachings they have received in relations to the protector deity. The main part of the video was filmed in 2000 and it shows 3,000 lay and ordained Tibetans heading towards Gaden Shartse Monastery in South India in order to riot against a group of Dorje Shugden practitioners.

VIDEO: France 24 reports on the Dorje Shugden issue

France 24 is a reputable news network based in France, known for their objective reporting style. They covered the Dorje Shugden issue extensively, surely a reflection of the seriousness of the issue for them to devote so much airtime to it. In their video, France 24 captured on film the discrimination against a Dorje Shugden monk.

VIDEO: Al Jazeera reports on the Dorje Shugden issue

Based in the Middle East, Al Jazeera was formed in response to the heavy influence of Western culture on the media. They are known to cover controversial topics that other news agencies may be reluctant to cover, and provide hard-hitting, objective coverage of current affairs.

Evidence of the Ban

Over the years, my students have collected evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden. Personally, I find it quite disappointing and sad that they have been able to collect so much evidence because it just goes to show how widespread and pervasive this ban has become. As you can see below, notices banning Dorje Shugden practitioners can be found just about anywhere in the Tibetan settlements. Whether a Dorje Shugden person is trying to access healthcare or enter a restaurant, or try to buy something from a shop, they are banned everywhere and refused service. How is this just ‘advice’ when the repercussions of practising Dorje Shugden are so violent inside the Tibetan communities and settlements?

    Its great news that Digital Journal and Reuters for publishing the statement of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche on self-immolations. As to spread awareness of unnecessary lost of lives and discourage self-immolations as a form of protest by some Tibetans. This method of protest has not been successful by looking at those past history. Many of the initial self-immolations were carried out by monks, but there is a growing number of laypeople, including nomads and farmers, have since taken part. Its really sad loosing a life in such a manner. The Chinese government has recently stated that those inciting or abetting self-immolations should be charged with intentional murder . More than hundreds of monks have taken their own lives up yo date and still the international community remains unmoved.. Hopefully H.E Tsem Rinpoche’s plead against Self Immolation which is been heighted in social medias and by this Digital Journal can be read and heard by many across the globe . Self Immolation has to be stop somehow. Every one should be given the rights, freedom to choose and practise any religion they want. The choice is theirs and not the government . May all discrimination, segretation stop and may all live harmonious .
    Thank you Rinpoche for speaking up and gave some good advices , understanding to those people , monks and others.
    Thanks Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai, Digital Journal and Reuters .

    I thank His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche the 25th for having so much courage and determination to speak up about issues that are harmful and hurtful to many others. One being the Dorje Shudgen issue and the other is the this senseless immolations by Tibetans. If the immolations makes a difference in the Tibetan struggle yes perhaps one can consider doing so, but it has not make one bit of difference to the lives of the Tibetans in Tibet at all. I would also like to add that Tsem Rinpoche, does not need to get his feet into such a potentially charged issue, and like Rinpoche’s previous foray in speaking up about Dorje Shugden, when he highlighted that the immolations should be replaced by other more beneficial forms of actions. As a Buddhist, if one weighs the actions, immolation could potentially benefit the political standing and the Tibetan state, for me something worldly in nature and the effects of that if it benefits is short term and may or may not benefit this life, if one does actions that is in the nature of buddhist and not suicide that potentially has benefits as outlined by Pastor Jean Ai, that benefits for sure this and many other lifetimes and potentially be a spark for someone to achieve enlightenment.

    A true democracy allows everyone the freedom to exercise their human rights, including the freedom to practise any religion they want. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with this right. Neither are democratic governments prejudiced against their citizens’ choice of religious belief. They do not force people to stop their religious practice or pass legislation criminalising people because of their religion.

    The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan leadership who are based in Dharamsala are the exception. They are the only so-called ‘democratic’ leadership that puts a stranglehold on its people, persecuting them for their religious beliefs. They deny the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners for simply practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracised from their own community, denied medical care, education or even employment in government offices. The CTA definitely does not live up to the right to be called a democratic administration, especially when in it inflicts suppression of people’s freedom and disrespects basic human rights.

    Self-immolation is a harmful way to deliver a message. Why would the leadership and His Holiness the Dalai Lama allow such harmful action? It is an irony to see His Holiness keeping silence, for His Holiness is a monk, therefore naturally follows Buddhist practices that is against any action that leads to self-harm (or harming of others). Thankfully, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche voices out and educates the people to understand this is not right. I hope the Tibetans would listen to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and stop harming themselves.

  5. callista on Apr 1, 2018 at 12:23 am

    I would like to thank Digital Journal for publishing Tsem Rinpoche’s Advice Against Self Immolation.
    Even a third party has realized the importance of human life and published the news and why can’t CTA realize that its people are suffering and to the certain extent some of them choose to self-immolation as a form of protest.
    CTA has plenty of ways to create the discrimination on Shugden practitioner, but they have no time to take care of the country affair and the funniest part is they keep denying that there is no ban on Dorje Shugden practice but why both websites DalaiLama.com stated His Holiness Dalai Lama actually emboldens Tibetans to discriminate against and segregate Shugden practitioners. This section is basically the Dalai Lama’s ‘endorsement’ of such behaviour and Tibet.net unanimous resolution dated 17 March 2014 naming Dorje Shugden practitioners as criminals in history (point 3, paragraph 2).

    Well, CTA can deny anything but the truth will always be there.

    I sincerely hope that, HHDL and CTA allow freedom of religion

  6. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Mar 30, 2018 at 8:00 am

    Thank you Digital Journal published Tsem Tulku Rinpoche ‘s statement on self-immolation should not be encouraged. Life is precious. As a Buddhist, we are aware how precious human life is ,just like the blind turtle need to touch the ring on the waving ocean. Instead we are sad the the self -immolation action did not attract the international community action, all remain silent. Even heart break is Tibetan leadership even encouraged this action and attack Rinpoche who want to save lives. We really wish that right message can pass down to people and such actions no more happened.

    Thank you.

  7. Pastor Han Nee on Mar 24, 2018 at 10:33 am

    Digital Journal, thank you for publishing Tsem Rinpoche’s re-affirmation of his call to all Tibetans to desist from Self-Immolation as a Form of Protest. As Rinpoche has so clearly and compassionately put it, self-immolation is a violation of a basic tenet of Buddhism – to refrain from Killing.

    It is sad that the 152 who have self-immolated(who include monks and nuns), have strayed so far as to forget this basic tenet and committed such a gross act of transgression. It is even sadder that they were not aware that their acts of self-immolation were in vain.The world has not been moved to step forward to help realise their purpose and desire – their free Tibet Cause.However, as Rinpoche also points out, what is most amazing is that the Tibetan Leadership has remained silent over these self-immolations. That they can remain unmoved by their own people taking their own lives for a cause, which they themselves are suppose to have worked on BUT have failed to do so and advance in any way!

    Tibetans urgently need to be educated about how wrong it is to take their own lives and for a grossly mistaken hope that self-immolation will advance their dream of an independent and free Tibet.Self-immolations must be stopped! The Tibetan Leadership, whom Tibetans still trust, must not abdicate this responsibilility to tell and advise them that they must STOP!

    Just imagine Robert Thurman, the Professor of the Chair of Tsongkhapa at Columbia University , telling Sock Wan to abandon her devotion to her Guru! Just unbelievable that he can make such derogatory remarks and vile aspersions on our most compassionate Guru, Tsem Rinpoche, and Kechara! I wonder when he will realise that he is the deluded one, for only a deluded mind can be so negative! For why else would any thinking person attack another for trying to stop further self-immolations and save lives? I tremble to think that he is using his authority of an academician of a renowned university to spread such gross malevolent unsubstantiated views and lies!

  8. Ming HY on Mar 20, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    Thank you Reuters and Digital Journal for publishing the statement by HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche against self immolation , resulting in the loss of 152 lives. It is indeed sad that Buddhists are supposed to refrain from killing are taking their own lives, and then glorified as heroes by putting up monuments. It”s also sad that the CTA is not being active at putting a stop to this or discouraging it, as not only is this act ineffective in achieving their goals, but it is an unnecessary and violent loss of life, only creating more sadness and grief, to family, friends and those watching such an act. Thank you Rinpoche for speaking up about about this, and out of your true compassion and kindness to prevent more unnecessary suffering.

    I am however, rather disappointed that Mr. Robert Thurman had used this to attack Rinpoche in a totally uncalled for manner. I am very disappointed because I was lead to believe that as a teacher and practitioner of Lama Tsongkapas teachings, Mr. Thurman should practice what he preaches, otherwise his words will hold no water. Would you trust a person who shares the teachings of Buddhism and yet behaves otherwise?

    I pray that self immolations does come to an end and may all the conflicts be resolved peacefully.

  9. Frederick Law on Mar 20, 2018 at 3:23 am

    Deep appreciation to Digital Journal to publish H.E The 25th Tsem Rinpoche stand on self-immolation. It is saddening to see Tibetan sacrifices their life by setting themselves ablaze to protest, and yet none of Tibetan leadership speaking up and take action to stop this act, instead they focus on other Dorje Shugden ban and magnify on it as if it is serious issue that is destroying Tibetan community and Tibetan Buddhism.

    The CTA divert everyone attention to Dorje Shugden ban, and yet they never resolve the issue to self-immolation, is the CTA only care about how put down Dorje Shugden practitioner, and ignoring the humanity of precious life of those self immolator. It is even appaling that the community attacked Tsem Rinpoche for speaking about the truth against the Self- immolation, and why are they not asking and requesting CTA and His Holiness to tell the Tibetan to stop this inhuman act of Self-immolation.

    And what Robert Thurman wrote about Tsem Rinpoche just show that he does not practice Buddhism and what he preached. If He is His Holiness Dalai Lama student, why does he contradict the teaching given by Dalai Lama about compassion, kindness and peace? Could you still trust such person who preached Buddhism, and yet doing action contradict to what he wrote. Is it still inspiration to learn the essence of Buddhism from such hypocrite?

  10. Lin Mun on Mar 19, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Appreciate Digital Journal who is another big media network to write an article about Rinpoche’s comments on self immolation. It is not acceptable that Tibetan Leadership is not taking any action to stop the suffering on their people. 152 cases and still does not dawn on them of their people’s request. Thank you Rinpoche for your work in standing up for the Dorje Shugden practitioners and enduring all the attacks from various sources.

    With this article and hopefully many more to come, more people would stand up against self immolation and unfairness imposed by Tibetan Leadership. The government can’t just stay numb but instead quickly engage in peaceful dialog to resolve this matter.

  11. Irene Lim on Mar 18, 2018 at 5:15 am

    Thank you Digital Journal for publishing Tsem Rinpoche’s advice against self Immolation. It is extremely sad that 152 had taken their own lives to protest their plight in vain. Precious human lives should not be sacrified and is sacrilegiously wrong to commit sucide in protest. By publishing Rinpoche’s advice is to help in bringing benefiical information to the mass to deter future self-immolators. I hope more medias will follow suit.

    It is outrageously weird and shocking to see Professor Robert Thurman attacking Rinpoche. Is this his way of representing his alama mater? He ought to be ashamed of himself. Thank Buddha I am not his student fortunately. As usual he often echoes the Dalai Lama in saying there is no ban in Dorje Shugden practice when evidence and reality have proven otherwise.

  12. so kin hoe (KISG) on Mar 17, 2018 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you Digital Journal for publishing the statements of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to cease from self-immolation within Tibetan community as a form of protest. 152 of precious human lives were lost in self-immolation are sufficient to prove that self-immolation is not an effective method to influence the Tibetan leadership in improving the way they run and manage their Tibetan in exile community as the split of Gelug community because of the Dorje Shugden conflict and the split of the Karma Kagyu community because of the Karmapa issue are yet to be resolved as of now. No other self-immolation should be continued on within the Tibetan community as the scarification of human life and the injustice regulations set by CTA against the Dorje Shugden practitioners are obviously two different matters.

    The poor leadership of CTA and failure to cultivate unity, peace and harmony among all Tibetans has even caused a well-known professor, Robert Thurman to misuse his popularity and status of being close to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama when he had downgraded a caring and kind Lama, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, for his own personal agenda. A sincere Buddhist and spiritual practitioner will not attack on anyone negatively but practise the Dharma according to Buddha’s teachings 100% without any prejudice, bias, hatred and schism.

    May all the conflicts within the Tibetan community will be ended peacefully to restore the unity and harmony for all Tibetans, and the history of Tibetan self-immolation will not be continued but ceased immediately.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  13. graceleong on Mar 14, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    I am happy to see another media highlighting H.E Tsem Rinpoche’s plead against Self Immolation, as I personally do not believe this is a wise act. I believe that by staying alive and doing something for the cause might result in a greater chance of success then taking one’s own life for the cause.
    What took me by surprise in this article is the conversation that Robert Thurman had with Ms Sock Wan. Based on the LAMRIN (Liberation in the Palm of your Hand by H.E Pabongka Rinpoche) refering to page232 – I would regard Robert Thurman as “Bad Company”. As described in the LAMRIN
    “”Bad Company”don’t wear coarse sacking, they don’t have horns on their heads; “bad company” means people who make you do something nonvirtuous out of a feigned concern for your welfare, or who prevent you from doing something virtuous. The LAMRIN advised to ignore such people, no matter who they may be. Regard them as terrifying, as if they were mad elephants, tigers or leopards, and avoid them””

    Robert Thurman “advised” Ms Sock Wan to give up her Guru ! Robert Thurman asked her Not to listen to her Guru’s teachings !! Robert Thurman called this blog which has 11.7 million views a fake website !! His Twitter conversation with Ms Sock Wan is certainly NOT FAKE !!
    I felt really disappointed and sad and also upset to read his comments. I feel worried now for all the students who read his books or attended his classes on Buddhists studies. His words to Ms Sock Wan had no wisdom and compassion – how can he guide any being to Enlightment ??
    I say this with no malice and I really hope he will reflect on his wrongdoings and apply all the Buddha’s teachings in his practice to benefit others and not otherwise. With folded hands.

    Look at what a controversy can result in ….. people who believed in the controversy (in this case Dorje Shugden and the practice ) they can go all out to judge, harass, defame, discriminate, disparage and also encourage others to follow suit. They are so convinced they are right that they allowed their ego to rule and left no room for wisdom and compassion.
    Similarly with the controversy of the Karmapas. Those who fell for the controversy believed they were right and fell into the samsaric trap of fulfilling their self cherishing ego and lead them to have wrong thoughts, wrong speech and wrong actions.
    It is so scary because many of these people are labelled as Buddhist scholars, High Lamas and political leaders/heads and revered by many. Alas ! This proves IGNORANCE is truly a deadly poison !!

    I have to thank these news platform like Digital Journal and Reuters for publishing the statement of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche on self-immolations. This is for not only helping to spread the message of Rinpoche on self-immolations but they have also helped in saving more lives from engaging in taking their own lives.

    No matter what religion you are in, whatever reasons behind it, as mentioned by Rinpoche, self-immolations is an act of self-harm, it hurts not only the person who engages in the act but their family and friends as well. It surely hurts so many who see this act of self harm, but why a learned Tibetan Buddhism academician and Buddhist, Mr Thurman not able to see this act is actually not in line with non-killing percept? Unless Mr. Thurman is commenting with motivation to further the Tibet cause by sacrificing another person’s precious life, as Tibetan leaders are doing where they keep silence about this self harm all the time, after over 150 people have sacrificed themselves; and expecting more to take their own lives.

    To attack in such a way on Twitter, Mr Thurman has automatically disqualified himself as a scholar in Tibetan Buddhism who should know better about non-killing percept and all lives are precious, guru devotion, acceptance and compassion.

    To my dismay, Buddhism has turned to a war on self-glory (thinking that he knows more) versus humbleness. It’s very sad to see the exchanged msgs between Prof.Robert Thurman and Sock Wan. Robert Thurman even further claimed that Rinpoche’s website is a fake one. Being a writer, a professor and for some one of his calibre, shouldn’t he has known Buddhism better but why turned it into disaster? Shouldn’t he has more tolerance towards others and to be honest, it’s a serious matter to even claimed that H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s website is a fake one! His Emininece has taught many many many teachings other than Dorje Shugden practice. Rinpoche has repeatedly emphasised the importance of understanding Dharma correctly, on how and what to practice and Rinpoche even goes beyond the norm to by training those fortunate and close students directly so that they can be the better version of them. I am one of His Eminence online fans and I follow H.E. ‘s blog or teachings through social media like FB, Twitter closely and I found no faults of His teachings. I might not be the best example but at least I am being honest that I have benefitted from His teachings somehow.

  16. Sharon Ong on Mar 14, 2018 at 12:39 am

    Defending one’s believes is admirable but is self-immolation the solution? I don’t think so. There have been more than 150 self-immolations and the Tibetan government-in-exile (CTA) is still nowhere close to its goals. How many more lives need to be lost to this cause before CTA does something?

    I am really shocked to see someone of Robert Thurman’s standing sending such hateful tweets inciting students to go against their own teacher and defaming a Buddhist monk. As someone who is the expert in Tibetan Buddhism, he would know the importance of relying on a teacher and the consequences of breaking one’s Samaya with his/her teacher.

    I find it really strange that someone as highly educated like Prof Thurman would make false statements about Kechara and Rinpoche as he has not even taken the time to visit and objectively research to see what we are all about. We study the Lamrim, 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion and more here. These are Buddhist texts and am not sure where he got his info from about us only studying Rinpoche’s online posts.

  17. nicholas on Mar 14, 2018 at 12:34 am

    It’s ironic to see how Tibetan leadership can keep silent toward their own people sacrificing their lives. Their silent is directly showing their encouragement on such action which it doesn’t make sense as the leader for their people.

    Looking at how Prof Robert Thurman attacking Tsem Rinpoche for promoting to stop self-immolation is another weird scenario/situation. What is so wrong for a human to ask another human not to hurt themselves? Why is Prof Robert Thurman being so rude and defensive which by right he should also encourage the Tibetan to stop hurting themselves if he’s really truly compassionate towards Tibetan people. If he’s a real supporter’s of His Holiness the Dalai Lama isn’t that he should up hold His Holiness teaching and preaching which is encouraging for peace and non-violence. But his action is totally opposite.

    Whether you are spiritual, for humanity sake we should not encourage anyone to hurt themselves especially in this situation everyone should voice up to stop self-immolation and find a non-violent way to fight for your rights.

    Truly grateful for Digital Journal for publishing this article to support non-violent towards oneself and may more people around the world able to read this and together we voice up for the stop of self-immolation.

  18. Pastor Antoinette Kass on Mar 14, 2018 at 12:04 am

    It is good news that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche‘s message gets distributed more and more. I believe that many people feel bad about the Tibetans self-immolating but nobody is stopping them. Now everyone can read from Rinpoche that it is even against Buddhist vows and therefore absolutely not accepted by Buddhism. This shows even clearer that the CTA, the Central Tibetan Administration must do something to stop their people from killing themselves.

    Yet, we read so much about scandals and trips around the world from the CTA but nothing is done to prevent the Tibetans to stop them hurting themselves. This is very wrong and is not what the Tibetans deserve from their government. The CTA should stand up for the Tibetans and protect them. This is their first priority! I hope that they will do their best to stop the self-immolations and provide the Tibetans with better opportunities and a better life.

    It is tremendously sad that people criticize H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for speaking up. Instead of following Buddhist rules, people such as Bob Thurman openly critizise and put down Rinpoche because of his Dorje Shugden practice. This speaks volumes about what is going on in the Tibetan society and Tibetan Buddhism. So many insults and lies against H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara, only because we practice the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This is a shame for everyone who calls himself a Buddhist, let alone Prof. Bob Thurman. It is time for everyone to practice Dharma.

  19. Wei Theng on Mar 13, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for sharing this on self-immolation.
    Special thanks to Digital Journal and Reuter for publishing article to create more awareness so that more people will look into stopping the unnecessary sacrificing of self-immolation that has caused so many people losing their lives!

    Buddhism is about compassion and wisdom. It is sad to see that Tibetan leadership who is supposed to follow Buddhism are not stopping their people for killing their own selves. They are using their people for the sake of their political gain. There are more peaceful way to get to their political goals rather than “encouraging” their own people to taking their own lives.

    I agreed with Carmen that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche is very brave to speak up on self-immolation even though Rinpoche may get “attack” verbally or physically from having different opinions from the Tibetan leadership ie CTA just like the tweets from well-known Buddhism scholar/writer Robert Thurman. I am very disappointed to see how he has tweeted to my friends and calling my Guru & my friend cult. Buddhism is to walk the path and practice. Not just talk nicely with all the Buddhist jargons or show to how nice when one is in front of public while on the other hand is not following the Buddhist way and harming others. When the time comes, the true nature / behaviour will surface to show if one really practice Buddhism or just a Buddhist by name.

  20. JP on Mar 13, 2018 at 10:30 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche has been getting a lot of attention from overseas media such as Huffington Post, Reuters and now, Digital Journal, for his stance on religious freedom and recently, his appeal for Tibetans to NOT self-immolate as a form of protest. There are always peaceful and non-violent methods that are more effective.

    Uma Thurman’s father, Prof Robert Thurman of Columbia University has been attacking Tsem Rinpoche for promoting religious freedom and the end of religious apartheid in the Tibetan Buddhism. It’s unbelievable that a professor from such a prestigious institution can harrass a monk online and continue to be righteous about it. I’m even more surprised that Columbia University even allows one of their faculty members to continue promoting such hatred and negativity.

    As women in the US are standing up against harrassment of all sorts in the #timesup and #metoo campaign, it’s about time that people wake up to stop supporting the discrimination of any religion and become mindless pawns of a corrupt group of politicians who paint themselves as victims and ambassadors of peace. In this case, I’m highlighting the Tibetan leadership and their supporters.

  21. Carmen Koo on Mar 13, 2018 at 8:10 pm

    Thank you for this, and thank you to Digital Journal for a press release that voices for a call to action that is urgent because it has involved many lives, and will continue to involve more lives if nothing is done.

    Tsem Rinpoche is extremely brave, for logically speaking up on subjects that many avoid, or have been silenced to. His plight for Dorje Shugden practitioners to gain religious equality has been a source of strength to the many who have been shunned and silenced, and now his words on self-immolation is sending waves of support and encouragement to those who have been affected by this.

    My question to the Central Tibetan Administration is that if their believe and conviction to “Free Tibet” was of such significance and importance to them, how come they’re not the ones wanting to/proposing to self-immolate (note: not that I am for self-immolation and the act, its just a question for their consideration), and yet can stand on the sideline to watch their own brothers and sisters do so and do nothing about that? And If knowing that self-immolating does not bring any significant result, as it has not with the tragic loss of 152 lives, then why encourage this act? Why not come up with another solution or proposal that does not involve sacrificing precious human lives, for the sake of their people? Out of compassion and love for their people, they should better themselves to do more. They are Buddhists too, and knowing that there is huge negative karma in committing suicide, why do nothing to stop it, and watch it happen?

    Robert Thurman – many people respect you, but your tweets does not reflect your stature as a Professor. You clearly know that the 50 stanzas of Guru Devotion is a root practice in Vajrayana Buddhism, and you are doing the exact opposite, separating student and teacher. I am surprised at this! Will the Dalai Lama Agree with this? http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/will-the-dalai-lama-agree-with-this.html

  22. Datuk May on Mar 13, 2018 at 5:27 pm

    I have heard of Robert Thurman and read of his closeness to the 14th Dalai Lama and supposed to be a learned person of the Buddhist Dharma in particular Tibetan Buddhism.

    Robert Thurman’s comments on H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche is testament to his lack of ability NOT to criticise for the purpose of his being disagreeable to being compassionate in Rinpoche’s statement to stop self immolation.

    If Robert Thurman is as Buddhist as he seem to be portrayed then he should not be attacking Rinpoche personally but rather be complimentary to Rinpoche’s appeal to stop self immolation. An appeal out of compassion.

    I regret to have to say this, but Thurman’s tweets about Rinpoche is uncalled for and without basis.

  23. Anne Ong on Mar 13, 2018 at 4:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for pointing out on how self-immolation can be resolved. Good job to Digital Journal for publishing Rinpoche’s thoughts and letting the public know there is hope in stopping self-immolation.🙏 I sincerely pray that Tibetans will stop self immolation, and the Tibetan leadership in exile to issue statements to discourage self immolation. What Robert Thurman has tweeted about Tsem Rinpoche is really very annoying. What a nasty, mean and obnoxious old man this Thurman is. He should shut up. 😡😱. Thank youPastor Jean Ai and blog team for this write up!👍

  24. Lew on Mar 13, 2018 at 4:08 pm

    I am sorry to say this, but I am very disgusted what Robert Thurman has tweeted about Tsem Rinpoche. Who is Robert Thurman to say others as fake? Just because Robert is close to HH Dalai Lama, he is now an authority or something? After writing so many books, and being so close to HH Dalai Lama, he choose to discriminate and spread hatred instead of practicing kindness and acceptance? Is that the kind of Buddhism he received from HH Dalai Lama?

    How can Tibetan leadership be so selfish to want of their people to self immolate for their personal gain? I sincerely pray that Tibetans will stop self immolation, and the Tibetan leadership in exile to issue statements to discourage self immolation.

  25. Nicholai R. on Mar 13, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    This is my first time to this blog. After Thurman tweeted about Tsem Rinpoche, it got me curious to google and landed me here. After checking out the very unpleasant tweets from Bob Thurman, I will not read or purchase any more of his books. All that love, compassion and tolerance he preaches in his books is just for business and he does not practice himself. How can he tweet such ugly messages to people. He has no right to tell anyone what their practice is. People want to pray to Buddha, demon, god, hell or whatever is NONE OF THURMAN’S BUSINESS!

    He is suppose to be close to the Dalai Lama. He teaches/lectures in Buddhism and yet he is rude, nasty, extremely childish and obnoxious. After decades of practicing Buddhism and he behaves like this. If we didn’t know Buddhism better we would lose faith in Buddhism seeing it gives no results. He being close to the Dalai Lama and he behaves like this? Makes me lose trust in Dalai Lama although I know it’s not Dalai Lama’s fault.
    What a nasty, mean and obnoxious old man this Thurman is. He should shut up.

  26. Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 13, 2018 at 2:37 pm

    I hope that more publicity would be made by other media on this matter, “Self Immolation”, now that Reuters and Digital Journal have published it.

    I maintain what I commented below:
    “What good would that be, and what could be done, when that person who believed in their cause and who had so much faith for what they wanted to achieve when they are dead?”

    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/reuters-publishes-my-thoughts-on-tibetan-self-immolation.html

    Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 9, 2018 at 11:10 pm
    I absolutely agree with Rinpoche that no matter what the reasons are, no one should give up their life for whatever cause they believe in and are fighting for. What good would there be, and what could be done, when that person who believed in their cause and who had so much faith for what they wanted to achieve when they are dead? If every fighter had to sacrifice their precious life then who is left to champion the cause they believed in?

    I don’t see our hear any of the CTA people self immolating since they are the leaders of the Tibetans in exile, and they believe and want so much for a Free Tibet. I’m not insinuating that the CTA or anyone should but I’m just saying out loud.

    Great news for Tibet befriending China. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to amend ties between the two countries. China has transformed itself becoming the largest economy in the world in no time. The world economy is rapidly changing, China’s economy will become more significant and will surpass America soon. Many countries in the world is making friend with China. With this meeting Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will benefits both sides. In time may HH Dalai Lama have dialogue with China to solved the controversy on the Dorje Shugden ban for the benefits of the people . Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with China. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered and divided. Its more than a year since the workshops ,nothing has improved. Do hope both countries friendship will continue to pave way for more meetings. May HH Dalai Lama then solve the long controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Even though it’s a old post, which I came across , still it’s a wonderful moment many had invited home this beautiful Setrap statues. Dharmapala Setrap is the enmanation of buddha Amithaba and highly enlightened beings. For 600 years hundreds of thousands of great masters, lamas and practitioners have since relied on Setrap as their principle protector. Rejoice to those who have invited one as family protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this Powerful Dharmapala Setrap to Malaysia.

    Our faith and religion is our choice. We choose what we want to practice . That’s our choice. We should respect each other choice and should not be biased, segregate, discriminate or hurt any one of a different faith to have a better environment to live in. Those who believe in Dorje Shugden should be treated equally and respected as others too. Politics is politics and has nothing to do with religion. Once mixed it s become harmful to another and used by another for political agenda. Tibetan leadership(CTA) should stopped contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has created disharmony and disunity among their communities. There are more than enough evidence to prove that there is no religious freedom or true democracy and discrimination against Shugden people within. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon and they have the freedom and rights to practice freely.

    The Tibetans in exile….. after leaving Tibet does not seem to improve much all these years in India. Since the establishment of the Tibetan leardership nothing was done for the welfare of the Tibetan people. The situation now is still the same as before. More and more Tibetans are speaking up and moving out or back to look for better jobs opportunities else where. The Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners much suffering and hardship ,all these years . It is heartfelt to see situation like these, the Tibetans are being torn apart and divided . Even after 50 years, there is nothing that has changed and the CTA did not amend the ties between the CTA and China. Time has changed for the better everywhere, the CTA must change. Thank you Tibet Lover for your comment, hopefully more people will speak up against the wrong-doings done by CTA . May the Tibetans living in exiles have a peaceful and happy solution solved someday. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon

    All religions emphasis love, compassion and peace. If there are violence imposed, I believe it most probably are the wrong view of the practitioners. Hence it is NOT right to impose violence in the name of moral principle. Having the right understanding is very important to mold a peaceful and harmony world. For a start we as individual have to understand, accept and practise it in our daily life. No point talking and not putting it into action.

    While HH Dalai Lama may has his view about Four Faced Mahakala and Setrap, the Buddhist or non Buddhist practitioners should weigh the comment and learn up about the subject before forming an agreement or disagreement. Mahakala and Setrap are enlightened dharma protectors that have been propitiate by many high lamas, tulkus for few hundred years. It will be strange if one were to say that their belief and practise were actually wrong. Mahakala is the emanation of Manjushri and Setrap is emanation of Buddha Amitabha. So how can both Mahakala and Setrap be wrong.

    Dalai Lama may have state his comment due to certain reason which we may not understand now but ultimately, we should not follow the comment blindly without investigation and debate.

The US Senate has opened each session with a prayer from various faith, that shows an open fair-minded of US accepting and tolerance in all faiths and religion. World peace can be achieve only that they live together with mutual religious tolerance and respects.

    All religions are basically the same that all religions basically teach the same that’s for sure. They seem to all be saying the same thing in different ways. All religions teach the practice of loving kindness, compassion, caring, respectful and tolerance within each other. HH Dalai Lama spoke powerfully in a keynote address at an interfaith Conference sharing his views on how to tackle global challenges like climate change and corruption. When we observe good faith and justice toward all nations we will live harmoniously and peacefully. Great religious acceptance and tolerance, a very necessary aspect in keeping peace and harmony.

    For Samfoonheei – KABAR BAIK

    Saya telah berpikir bahwa semua perusahaan pinjaman online curang sampai saya bertemu dengan perusahaan pinjaman Suzan yang meminjamkan uang tanpa membayar lebih dulu.

    Nama saya Amisha, saya ingin menggunakan media ini untuk memperingatkan orang-orang yang mencari pinjaman internet di Asia dan di seluruh dunia untuk berhati-hati, karena mereka menipu dan meminjamkan pinjaman palsu di internet.

    Saya ingin membagikan kesaksian saya tentang bagaimana seorang teman membawa saya ke pemberi pinjaman asli, setelah itu saya scammed oleh beberapa kreditor di internet. Saya hampir kehilangan harapan sampai saya bertemu kreditur terpercaya ini bernama perusahaan Suzan investment. Perusahaan suzan meminjamkan pinjaman tanpa jaminan sebesar 600 juta rupiah (Rp600.000.000) dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam tanpa tekanan.

    Saya sangat terkejut dan senang menerima pinjaman saya. Saya berjanji bahwa saya akan berbagi kabar baik sehingga orang bisa mendapatkan pinjaman mudah tanpa stres. Jadi jika Anda memerlukan pinjaman, hubungi mereka melalui email: (Suzaninvestment@gmail.com) Anda tidak akan kecewa mendapatkan pinjaman jika memenuhi persyaratan.

    Music Delighting Ocean of Protector by H.H. Trijang Rinpoche is indeed a very precious text. A beautiful account by Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang on the origin of the great Dharma Protector of our times, Dorje Shugden. Reading it will give us a clearer understanding of it. I will read and reread from time to time to more. May more people be blessed with the practice of the Poerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful precious text on Dorje Shugden

    Modern Diplomacy is an invaluable platform for assessing international issues where Dr. Andre Galli an investigator have heighted the current political situation in Tibet. Having the Dalai Lama taking an opportunity to amend the diplomatic ties with China in a peaceful way. After so many decades of tension between Tibet and China , the Tibetan leadership finally decided maybe to correct the past mistakes. His Holiness the Dalai Lama who has made a stunning announcement of recognising the China backed Panchen Lama. It could made the way for an agreement between the CTA and China to solve all the issues all these years to the wishes and hopes of the Tibetans. The Holiness did once said that he would like to return to his homeland. That was the wishes of many Tibetans as well. The Holiness recent peace making approach towards China was the beginning for an agreement between China and the CTA which would allow the Tibetans in-exile to return home.
    Dr. Andre Galli ‘s conclusion is that the decades controversies over the Panchen Lama and Dorje Shugden devotion could somehow coming to an end. May HH Dalai Lama allow the practice of Dorje Shugden and lift the ban on Dorje Shugden soon.
    Thank you Mr Seow for this interesting article.

    This is a stunning aerial view of the Bodha Stupa. Even though the stupa is amidst busy shops and streets, the number of people who circumambulate it during the morning and evening are enormous. One can feel the vibration of strong positive energy when walking among the many people who are circumambulating the holy stupa in the same direction. I so much wanted to experience that again! Thank you for this sharing.

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.

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

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.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

  • Dogs are super intelligent. This dog was trained as a service dog to help his owner who suffers from seizures. It even goes to the extent whereby he will lie under her head when she has a seizure, to protect her head from banging on the floor.

    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.
    7 months ago
    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)
