Dear Everyone,

I do not have an animal shelter yet. But I purchase foods and needs from Wow Wow Pet shop (read about A Visit to Wow Wow Pets Shop here) and donate the food away to various sanctuaries that are struggling here and in Nepal.

It's not just 'cash and carry', there is a lot of hard work and preparations involved as you can see from the pictures below from my students who arranged the food to the various animal sanctuaries.

Please get involved. Help. Please create awareness to stop animal cruelty in any way, shape or form.

    Wau, that a fantastic way to help the animal. I can’t wait for Kechara animal sanctuary to manifest, many abandon street cat n dog need our help!

    Dear Johnny,
    I will purchase more in the future. It helps everyone.
    Much care and my regards to Elize please.

    Fantastic evening to spend in helping the good causes of these animals rescuers. May this create the merits towards the maifestation of the Kechara Animal Sanctuary.

    Rinpoche doesn’t teach Dharma by regurgitating the scriptures…Rinpoche expounds the Dharma by giving many examples to help us understand and internalize it so we can apply it to our lives. Rinpoche doesn’t just teach from the throne alone but by example. I have seen and experienced it many times (I’m sure older students can testify to this) how Rinpoche takes students out on shopping spree to teach us generosity. Giving us fishes to teach us how to care without any expectations.
    In regards to this posting, Rinpoche shows us how to create the causes to get what we wish for.. I was there for this shopping spree along with quite a few others…not to shop for ourselves but for other animal sanctuaries. Give others, benefit others ..that is the law of cause and effect. Rinpoche cannot be wrong…all the Kechara departments manifested pretty much this way.
    So, don’t just sit around and pout in self pity parties…if you are lonely, be a friend to someone. If you are of ill health, buy medicine, herbs, vitamins for others or offer it to Rinpoche, give what you wish to have. If you want happiness, stop thinking about self and give happiness to someone else…This I must practice with sincerity.

    Rinpoche’s actions can manifest in many benefits in this one action he benefits both the NGO’s and is also providing assistance to WOW WOW PETS at the same. His actions never seem short of amazing at all times. Many animal shelters do face financial challenges from a public that sometimes don’t care enough for the welfare of animals. May Rinpoche’s actions create the definite causes for the Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest. KAS when it manifests will be a land that will provide a shelter and sanctuary for animals that have been abandoned or abused. May this manifest quickly for the sake of animals everywhere in Malaysia.

  8. [...] 克切拉非常乐意帮助减轻动物的痛楚,也乐于协助任何抱持同样愿望的个人或团体。尊贵的詹杜固仁波切个人就一直默默在支援动物庇护所,帮助承受不可避免及可怕痛楚的动物。他坚信,善待动物的举动能够帮助我们生起慈悲心,因为我们帮助的对象是不会对你说“谢谢”或回报恩惠我们的对象。 [...]

    Since Kechara Organisation does not have an animal sanctuary yet. Rinpoche has to create the cause for the future Kechara Animal Sanctuary to start making it the 13th Department in Kechara Organisation. In the meantime Rinpoche purchase lots of Dog food to be delivered to the various animal NGOS. He purchased the dog food from his regular Pet shop Wows, wow, wow Pet shop where Rinpoche got Mumu from Elize the owner. There is also a lot of work involved. The work after the purchase of the goods does not end here.Manpower is needed. Transport is needed. Storage house is needed. Dog food has to be packed and delivered to the various NGOS. And one destination is also Nepal.

    Hi all,

    Let me know how I should get involved in this project. I can donate stuff online or whatever method suits you’ll.
    regards,

    Atula

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 13, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Rinpoche’s compassion is boundless, hence people who have compassion and it is directed to the welfare and in the service of others progress so quickly as their actions brings great beenfits with one action!

  12. philyong on Feb 3, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Rinpoche is the only person I know who is truly compassionate. Everything Rinpoche does is for others. All beings no matter how big or small will have a place in Rinpoche’s heart.

    Rinpoche is what we call a true practitioner of the Dharma. We all say we practice the Dharma but if we look at ourselves properly, do we really carry the Dharma well? The things we do daily, all our attachments, desire, etc are they the embodiment of the Dharma?

    I can never compare myself to Rinpoche but I do want to push myself to have those qualities. As the saying goes, the most important element of a race is the effort we put in before the race in order for us to succeed. So yes I start now to work towards a greater goal!

  13. Julien Roth on Apr 18, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Its so good to do this, then more animals in all of those animal sanctuaries have food to eat. And that probably makes the animals happy. I hope that more people donate food and supplies like this, so that the dogs in the animals sanctuaries have food to eat. And that makes me happy as well. I feel happy for these animals, and i hope that have a good rebirth and could help others in their next life as well.

    对我而言,我并不会加以区分任何一位上师和他们的观点。每位上师自有一套引领弟子通往证悟之道的方法。正因如此,智者释迦牟尼佛才传授了8万4千种法门。我们不该卷入冲突之中,进而批评这位或那位上师。佛法教导我们即便是面对鬼魂、乞丐、小偷、蛇和一切有情众生都该心怀善心。

    仁波切突然对我们说 “你们在这儿坐着稍等一会儿,我去和我的朋友们谈一谈。” 说完便起身走向酒店门口望着乌云密布的天空开始喃喃自语,我们一行人你看我我看你,面面相觑,然后转身面对着远处的仁波切发愣。。。大概过了5分钟,仁波切便走回来对我们说 “行了,我刚和他们谈过,他们说没问题。我们就快可以走了。” 果真在5分钟以内,滂沱大雨就转为绵绵细雨……

    从俗世的角度而言,如果要告诉人们某位上师和某个团体对我们做了些什么不好的事……非常简单,如果你提出的控诉是确凿、让你深受困扰,那你该去寻找援助。老是讨论它,跟几个人在那说了又说,是完全无法帮到你的。有谁有兴趣听?为何要如此无法自拔?

    几年前我的中医师发现我的肝部出了问题,并且建议我到西医做体检。经过检查,医生发现我有肝硬化的问题,若不医治或置之不理,此问题将成不治之症。经诊断出此问题之后,我便开始进规定好的饮食、服特定的药物。就在那期间,我的弟子们与确吉拉的助理联络上,询问助理确吉拉下一次降神为何时,目的是请示护法能为我赞助哪些法会,或是可以向谁求助、能为我做些什么。

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche

    In Malaysia we are blessed with a government that allows us religious freedom and for that I am thankful. So the Dorje Shugden issue should not be brought to Malaysia and Malaysian Buddhists have the right to explore the practice of Dorje Shugden without interference from any outside governments or outside religious authorities.

    In the Gelug Monasteries debate is an integral part of learning, retaining and understanding the Buddha’s teachings. So I laid out three possible debate scenarios for you. Therefore whatever is in the questions and in the answers is not definite but it is just thoughts I had. I would like all of you to read through it carefully and not be offended by what I say because no matter what I say, I still have the deepest respect for the Dalai Lama and my faith is unwavering in him, my teachers, my practice and my protector.

    你不享受宗教自由吗?你喜欢因为你的信仰被另一些人标签为恶劣的而被禁止上学、被迫与你的朋友和亲人隔开、不被允许经商吗?我们可以争吵至湿婆、梵天和毗湿奴毁坏、重建再保留宇宙几百次,即使是这样,我们也不会争出个胜负、对错来。事实是:我们每一个人都有权接受平等的对待,没有人应该面对基于自己的宗教信仰而被某些条例和规则所束缚的不公。无论我们的信仰是否被接受,或是否被视为正统的,说到底我们还是凡人一个。我们都需要食物、关爱、慈悲的对待,更值得拥有不可剥夺、与生俱来的权利,好比说选择的自由。不管是世俗或是宗教的领袖都不应从我们身上剥夺此权利。

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

The Unknown

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

Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too?

But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

Am so fortunate to meet one of my heroes. The courages 80 year old primatologist, Jane Goodall, best known for her long-term study of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, still travels 300 days in a year to share with the world her work with the motivation of inspiring youths and raising funds for the cause. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has blogged about her on tsemrinpoche.com entitled Something Incredible About Jane Goodall. Rinpoche admires Jane's work and prepared some gifts for her. HE gave Jane a Tara pendant, a small Tara statue (so that she can bring Tara with her all the time and be blessed), KMP's book on vegetarian recipes and The Promise, a pictorial biography of Rinpoche. May her talk create more Janes among the youths who attended her talk. DR
