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.

    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.

  6. Susan Lim on Jul 7, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    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.

    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.

    This person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services. The authentic and beneficial oracle tradition of Tibet is 1,000 year old. Tsem Rinpoche

    For Meng –

    Dear Meng,

    I understand where you are coming from and would like to share my thoughts for your kind considerations.

    I believe we are on the same page that hate speech is not acceptable, especially when it is being thrown onto a Buddhist monk. These speech were said on the social media platform with the intention for all to see openly. I believe people who said these are ready to take responsibility of their actions, therefore they do not mind say it with their name published openly. These people claimed themselves to be Buddhists too, are their actions acceptable in the first place?

    If you put yourself into our shoes, receiving these speech, how will you react to protect your Guru and organisation which works are solely to preserve and spread the precious dharma to benefit beings ultimately – to be liberated from samsara and achieve ultimate enlightenment. From your earlier comment, it is clear that you understand the consequences of these speech and it violates the very basis of the Refuge Vows and it is also clearly listed as one of the 10 non-virtues actions.

    Let’s say we keep quiet and not do anything about it, chances are they will continue to say more and create more negative speech karmas for themselves. How compassionate is it for us to know their consequences but remain quiet? It is illogical. It has been proven in the past that when we do nothing, we get more of the these negative speech directed at Rinpoche, our organisation and our members on social media. Not reacting encourages more of these hate speech to spread and continue.

    It is in fact a compassionate act to make their actions known so that they are made aware of their actions and will think twice before they do it again. Without showing their names, it is very possible that they are unaware who we are referring to. I believe you feel empathy because if you are one of them, you would appreciate to be given another chance before your faults are being exposed. Isn’t this all that we fear, our wrong actions being exposed openly, our ego being challenged? So, as a compassionate being, would you continue to protect one’s ego, which is the cause of all our negative deeds, or to show them directly, after many advices, their wrong actions? As a Buddhist, we understand that one needs to be responsible for their actions. If one is afraid of the result, why act in certain way at the first place?

    Therefore, it is necessary to show their comments with their names so that we do not give an impression that we are making up those claims and for the convenience of those who do not go onto social media, can see what has been said here clearly. In addition, we also don’t want to start a trend of simply accusing anyone without proof. It would be a bad example for people to follow especially those who have intention to cause harm.

    Thus, it is important, again with compassion intention, to not encourage hate speech and incite hate, we need to make a choice, one that will benefit both parties in the long run, especially when it is related to Dorje Shugden and the sensitivity that comes with it. We need to protect Rinpoche, His safety is our main concern, because without Him, there will be no dharma. In case if you are unaware, there is a hit list that display the full details of the Dorje Shugden practitioners including their address and contact details. This is a serious matter.

    As I’ve mentioned earlier, these are my thoughts for your kind considerations. I hope very much that you will take them into considerations and understand where I am coming from. Compassion do comes with wisdom, without which compassion is merely an act that further damage one’s practice on the path to enlightenment.

    With metta,
    Pastor Adeline

    I don’t agree with hate speech and treats BUT I also don’t agree publishing FB users’ Names on this blog and the person should censor the names and just leave the comments, especially on a Buddhist blog. True that they shouldn’t be writing threatening comments BUT publishing their names and Making others to starting identify and hate these FB users isn’t what a Buddhist should be doing. It’s disappointing that the administrators or members only concern with the users’ comments and their absolute loyalty to Rinpoche But forget to even care the well-being of these FB users. If you want to show that you’re in a higher ground, Show some Compassion and don’t publish their Names.

    I’m disappointed by this post.

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.

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    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 friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. 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
