Katinka Simonse (aka Tinkebell) – Art or Cruelty?

Katinka Simonse is a 31 year old woman from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. For the past few months, she has been in the media spotlight for reasons that most people would find disturbing.

According to the general public, she has been getting away with animal cruelty for the past few years. It is reported that she has 60 hamsters which she keeps in hamster balls, has remote controlled guinea pigs, places day old male chicks through paper shredders, writes on the snails in her garden to keep count of them… and killed her pet cat, Pinkeltje, and made it into a bag.

These are things that cause public outrage… but what are her reasons for it? She does all of the above for reasons she feels strongly about to make what she does seem OK.

She hasn’t been charged by the police, but has angered people so much that she is gets 100,000+ hate emails a day!

According to her, what she does is not appalling or repulsive. She wants to highlight the hypocrisy and double-standards with what people perceive as cruelty. She questions “What is cruel?”. She may have killed her sick cat and made it into a purse, but as she says, “ there is not a single cow who had a good life before it became a bag.” She explains she’s doing this “to use an animal that’s close to you in order to show what we do with the ones that are far from sight. I wanted people to think about that.”

To her, walking past Burger King, and seeing someone eat a hamburger makes her want to puke. She explains that it’s because she only sees what happens before the burger became a burger: the animal at the factory, what happened to it and how it was fattened up in a very short period of time. That to her is cruelty.

I am not supporting or condoning her. This is how she thinks, and these are her reasons. Do you agree with her words?

    Dear friends, I am not judging this woman, but I present some of the findings here for you. It’s just for awareness.

    Take a look. May no animals suffer.

    I think no matter how strongly we felt about certain things and would like to bring a message across we should not partake in actions that brings suffering to any living beings. There is alot of other altrnatives way such as those done by PETA which has gotten lots of publicity. We may perceived our actions as right and appropriate but it is not always the correct nor best way.

    As said by Rinpoche = ” May no animals suffer ”

    One less suffers , is one better.

      Hi Liew, you are so right and you took the words right out of my mouth. There are many ways to help lessen sufferings of the animals. She said people are cruel eating a hamburger but what gives her the right to kill and parade it around? Hypocrites in their own way and in denial of what people says because of ignorance. Not only may no animals suffer but may all of us be free of sufferings…

    • Babs on May 5, 2014 at 6:07 pm

      There is NO excuse for torturing, abusing or killing an animal for fun or to make a statement! The fight for animal rights and for humane treatment of all, including animals that are used for food, can be well done without causing more suffering. This woman is working the same way as the “fight against terrorism”. Fighting fire with fire. And in this case at the cost of animals’ lives. Shame shame shame on her. My friends and myself fight for every single life here in Ireland where animals are treated especially bad. We give our time, money and heart’s blood to take dogs out of the killing pounds, to rescue abandoned, abused, neglected or tortured cats, horses and dogs. Most of us are vegetarians or vegans. We try to make a difference not only by helping animals directly, we also organise peaceful demos to make people and the government aware of the problems. We organise fund raisers for the rescue organisations that all work on a volunteer basis. We try to rehome (and we do home checks before any animal goes to a new home) as many pets as we can. we fight for a no-kill policy in the pounds.

      We try to be the voice of those that cannot speak for themselves. That does NOT include killing,, maiming, torturing or abusing the ones we fight for. How hypocritical is THAT???

    Non sense for me. if I miss my good friend from far , so I am going to kill him and transform his skin in a bag to carry him close to me everyday?!? Non sense There is here , because there are not some animals who can be killed and others who can’t… Any living beings , whatever species it belongs has the right to live his life and be happy without being hurt. May every beings live with joy and happiness whoever species they belong to! <3 om mani padme hung. om mani padme hung for all the ones who has been killed with the will to or by accident. may everyone realise that no-one, humans or animals, want to be hurt or kill. Om mani padme hung.

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting this topic, she does make a valid point to bring to the fore what is cruelty however her logic to support her argument (by euthinasing her pet cat and turning into a handbag and use of small hampsters) about the suffering of animals for society eating pleasure is no different.
    Suffering is suffering for the animals on both sides of this arguement presented in the videos. It shows very clearly that without dharma how one can certainly be lead down wrong views, perceptions and resulting karmas on both sides of the debate.
    The Buddhas determination to find the “middle way” on his path to enlightenment…after years of intense asectic practice…makes me contemplate what would a middle way message could have been better? to bridge the debate from both sides who care for animals in their unique ways.
    Behind initial appearances I ask myself what is Katinka Simonse motivation for the debate she has put herself in the middle of? Why would you want to print a book of the hate mail you have recieved? For more attention and support your arguement, I am right they are wrong…
    In the whole debate no animal suffering she claims to be against has changed or stopped from her side.
    As part of my practice to remember the suffering of animals apart from taking a vegetarian vow for life (and current transition to full vegan) I dedicate small prayers when I see the excess of fashion for visual pleasure, where I live it seems to me in the past couple of years women’s leather footwear has increased in heights (maybe fake leather or not) either way in my view still perpetuates the cycle of use and abuse of animals.
    From my own experience consistency of what you believe in (regarding being vegetarian) highlighting the issues of animal suffering and consistency of walking the talk softens attitudes and helps bridge gaps between hardened attitudes of I only eat meat (followed by sometimes ridicule, sometimes anger and other responses not suitable for the blog, is nothing compared to the karma of being the animal that has to suffer needlessly for humans).
    Actually it is very easy to influence close friends and family to change their habits when they are able to see other aspects of the debate they could not see clearly in the past plus the longterm consistency of your actions.
    Rinpoche and blog team thank you for the timely reminder and inspiration/support to practice contemplation of compassion time and time again. Please everyone take to heart and put into practise the benefit you derive from this post also.
    Much love and prayers. Jason

    I think that woman is sick, I think she is mentally ill. Anyone who has really loved a cat, or any other pet, would never do such thing! If she really cared she would find other ways to convey her message, because that horror bag can never be a positive message, and a book of hate mail is not really something to be proud of.

  6. David Lai on Jul 9, 2011 at 5:27 am

    Interesting point she brought up there. I think her point makes sense but it is self-defeating because she uses cruelty towards familiar animals to highlight the plight of other animals. The point she neglects to mention is the fact that she is still cruel. The publicity stunt of making the handbag out of her sick cat seems to fuel her more than the actual cause. Her pink eyes look cold and without feeling when she talks about it. She loved her hate mail. It is the most attention she ever gotten in her life and the fact that she published it as a book shows how much she loves it. A lot of tell tale signs that she is off and is loving the attention from it.

    • Gisela T on Jul 6, 2012 at 3:55 pm

      Agree. She’s playing here with people’s feelings, and triggers them as strong as possible
      That’s not new from self-proclaimed action “artists.
      I remember in the 70ies a theatre show where so-called “action artists” slaughtered geeses on stage. (red blood on white feathers: drama)… with the pretense of “raising awareness” that we are all killers or so with the difference, that they claimed to be “honest” one’s. Well. Its a violent way to make a point.

  7. Yoke Fui on Jul 9, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I don’t agree with what she did but what she said did send a strong message -

    Just because we buy our meat from a supermarket doesn’t mean we are not responsible for killing the animals whose carcasses end up on our dinner table and by paying a vet to put our terminally ill pets to sleep doesn’t make us a kind and loving pet owner. In fact these pet owners are just like her.

  8. KT on Jul 9, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    How we judge her, is in fact how we should see ourselves. She is no other than our own society (and ourselves) in the fullness of our ignorance. On the one hand, we pretend not to know how badly animals are being treated before they become food and things for human beings. On the other hand, we think that we can highlight human cruelty by committing even more cruelty.

    However, i salute her in-your-face-approach because shock is what is needed when gentle pleas have not been heeded for decades.

    Anyone who criticize and judge her must FIRST check if they themselves are meat eaters and therefore partakers of cruelty, and users of things that come from animals having to suffer (such as cosmetics, handbags etc). If they are, they have no right to judge because they are DIRECTLY contributing to the cruelty. There is no denying that animals are tortured and abused for human’s sakes. And so, when you eat meat, YOU make it ok for the animal to be tortured. In fact it is your lust for meat that causes the So, lets not pretend.killings.

    What is more ignoble than doing nothing, is to show indignation when someone does something out of good motive, regardless of whether the method is right or not.

    I guess the most offensive thing about this woman is that she reminds us, of our own actions that we have not wanted to come to terms with.

  9. Sean Wang on Jul 9, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    I find this very wrong. I think that she is self-contradictory and she is very, very deluded.

    She is self-contradictory because she thinks that harming her animals is okay while seeing burger consumption as bad.

    She is deluded as she thinks that the animal will have less suffering if it was murdered by the owner rather than being euthanized. I think that there would still be more suffering.

    I feel sorry for this lady as she is a murderer and she most probably might become one animal that goes to slaughter or maybe a hell being at the rate she is killing.

    If someone close to me was going to die of something like cancer, I would not kill him and skin him or her to make a bag.

  10. ST on Jul 9, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    What gives anyone the right to kill to make a point for saving other lives? Can only be self justification/gratification logic, otherwise labelled as gross delusion. If the law can’t stop

  11. ST on Jul 9, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    If the law can’t stop her actions, karma will take care of it.

  12. ST on Jul 9, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    More aptly, this is no more than a perverted sense of compassion.

  13. Janice Kwok on Jul 11, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    This woman sense of righteousness is way off and she is obviously lapping up the attention given to her. No living beings should suffer and use a warped up excuse to kill is creating a delusion that this is an ok act. The media publicity given to her will only confuse the vulnerable. She has created so much negative karma, it will take a lots and lots of sincere practice to save her.

  14. Millie on Jul 11, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    I agree with her veiws on leather shoes, bags and also her point on meat. It is a cruel process to make these products. However I do not agree with what she is doing. Since she doesn’t agree with people wearing leather and eating meat then why is she doing the same thing? This is only my veiw but I think if there is something that we don’t agree with because it is cruel or unfair we shouldn’t react to it but only teach people how to act. So in a way your being a good example for people. This is only my veiw.
    -Millie

  15. Lim Han Nee on Jul 16, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this most thought-provoking post.

    From my own closed and limited mind, i can’t be sure if Tinkebell is showing ‘crazy wisdom’ or acting out of a deluded mind.

    Nevertheless,she makes me think about the cultural norm regarding ‘What constitutes Cruelty’. It would appear that, according to this this cultural norm, it is cruel to kill some object near and dear to us, like one’s pet.It is cruel to keep one’s pets in small suffocating confines. This same cultural norm perceives as not cruel if an animal that is not one’s pet is (cruelly) force-fed, kept in suffocating confines and brutally slaughtered and served to us as delicious meat on our dinner table.

    Again, it is cruel, according to this cultural norm, to take the skin of one’s dead pet(even though it had been killed, in an act of euthanasia, by its owner out of compassion for it and to end its suffering from a terminal illness) and make it into a bag. However, this same cultural norm deems it not cruel to have animals deliberately reared and (cruelly) killed for their skin so as to make lovely handbags for people to buy at exorbitant prices and use.

    So. Tinkebell is making a strong statement in protest against the cultural norm of Cruelty and for that she is being vilified.

  16. Uncle Eddie on Jul 17, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Any normal person who has been in such media-spotlight would find them disturbing, except her. The spotlight news even indicated that “she has been getting away with animal cruelty for the past few years and created a storm with such acts; in addition to receiving 100,000 plus hate emails aday”. But yet she had the cheek to claim that her acts were not appaling, repulsive and cruel, than the Burgerking who fatten up the animals to make into hamburgers to be sold and eaten up, which make her to puke! How radiant and proud she seemed to appear in her tv appearences. Through her ignorance of false compassion she had even cut up her own sick pet-cat and used her beautiful fur skin to be made into a purse-bag.How crazy can a being be, and yet by her own reasoning, seems to think whatever she has done were all OK!!!

    You are a good candidate for DEATH PENALTY. I hope with all my heart that animalists take you for suffer the same things that you make against animals!! You are a devil and the devils must be die. Attention now you are in serious danger because all the people want know who is you and certainly they succeed to understand who is you.I will send your video to all my friends and then………You are very dangerous and stupid in the same time,shut up and attention again.

  21. Deborah Clarke on Dec 19, 2011 at 3:46 am

    I beleive there are much more humane ways to get people to listen to animal rights concerns,then actually being cruel and painting it up to be ok!!!!
    She is obviously in need of evaluation of her reality. For the last five and a half years i have re-homed and sterilised dogs in Zakynthos and i endevour to take care of animals and the environment to best way i can…. and its still not enough. all this woman is doing is re-directing anger at her instead of where it should be, so stop her doing this to the animals and then we can get on with the real battle…… saving the environment and animals from the parasite that is the human race.

  22. Su An on Dec 25, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Like it or not, this lady’s very unconventional way of highlighting the double standard of human society towards the treatment of “edible and non-edible” animals does strike a nerve in everyone. Any publicity is good publicity, as some would say. Hopefully people would not just stop at condemning her based on their notion of what cruelty is, but also consider her point of view on what cruelty is.

    Check out her website- http://looovetinkebell.com/ (its rather disturbing but interesting at the same time).

  23. susan ellsworth on Dec 30, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    She is crueland somthing needs to be done to her, no this is NOT ART!!! Next it will be exploting children she is sick and twisted andany fool who thinks this is art needs to get seriuos help!!!!

  24. ElToten on Feb 7, 2012 at 2:42 am

    Methinks that most of the haters here have not realized their own ignorance and hypocrisy which they display so openly and generously.

  25. DiDi on Jun 4, 2012 at 4:50 am

    The sick bitch needs to be beaten, stoned and hung in public. She needs to be skinned and her ugly body thrown in a river.Totally sick to my stomach hearing and even reading it. I just feel soo much of anger and hatred towards this whore.

  26. Simon Falla on Aug 11, 2012 at 2:23 am

    You ask if it is “Cruelty or Art”

    listen whore. you’ve made me mad. why don’t you travel on down here and let me kill you.now bitch – i want to do you like that . i do not like you. i want to peel your skin off of your stinking ass. die whore die whore die whore. your pussy stinks and i’m telling the world. i’m posting it on my facebook that your pussy stinks.it will come home to you mistreating little beings like that.you will get yours and i hope i hear about it so i can laugh.let me know where they bury you so i can come by and shit on your grave.

  28. patsy on Nov 7, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    I don’t like what she did. She is cold and heartless and she loves attention. But she did send out a strong message against animal abuse even though that’s not the correct way to do. Every day, animals are killed in slaughter houses and the pain and sufferings they have to go through are worst then what this woman is doing. If we cant stand what she is doing, than we should not eat meat or use leather products.

  29. beatrix ooi on Nov 19, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    I think that she’s got a point. But I think that she should not be doing what the slaughters do, this makes her have to kill more animals. At the end, she became the the person she dislikes. I hope she figures this out and stop doing what she is doing.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  30. edward ooi on Nov 20, 2012 at 3:20 am

    Whatever people says, she is crazy for killing her sick cat and made it into a bag. But she is not, she kill her sick pet cat and made it into a bag is because a lot of people they buy leather bags and purse and many cow died for this, since her pet cat is dying from sickness why don’t her kill her pet cat without suffering and made her into a bag so she don’t have to buy a leather bag that will kill another animal.

  31. Robby on Nov 24, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    This is absolutely horrible. What she is doing is clearly a terrible sin. These defenseless animals deserve to live.

  32. Julien Roth on Nov 29, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    I do not agree with this women’s words. I think what she is doing is sick and not right. And it is in fact, animal cruelty. But i can understand if she says that she killed her cat to stop it from suffering. That i get. But what i do not completely understand, is the fact that she turned her dead cat into a handbag. This could make people think that she killed her cat so that she could make a handbag for herself.

    And also, i think how she keeps her hamsters in hamster balls is cruel. This is because, by doing this, she doesn’t give her hamster freedom. Instead they are stuck in a tiny ball waiting to get fed and to be played with. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  33. Lucas Roth on Dec 28, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    this is horrible to me, because if she thinks she does not like burgers because they kill the animal to get it she is doing the same. how does she think this is anyway ok??? cruelty is cruelty and there is no different type. i am glad i am a vegetarian.

  34. Vinnie Tan on Aug 9, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    It is just cruel to hurt any animals in any way. Taking away animals’ lives in the first place is wrong. She should not be doing that. With regards to her making her dead cat into a purse, I would say that I guess it would be understandable to a certain extend as she loves her cat.

    For the hamsters in the hamster balls, there are a few different ways to look at it. One is that with them being in the hamster ball, they would be able to roam freely without having the fear of killing them by accident. We can also say that it is cruel because we are trapping them in an environment that they do not have a proper place to answer their calls from nature, and that they would not be able to eat a meal properly.

  35. Tong sunsun on Nov 11, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    这女的逻辑很奇怪,难道老了生病了的宠物就不是生命吗?那别人也可以说看她不顺眼然后杀了她把她的皮拿来做衣物??你说这是哪门子道理??

  36. Edward Ooi on Dec 23, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Dear Rinpoche, raising her hamster in the ball is not good for the hamster I don’t know why she did that but as for the cat, she have done nothing wrong. People might think that she is crazy because she killed her sick cat and made it into a purse as for me, I don’t think so because when living beings are dead you can’t cause any more physical pain to them. I agree to Katinka Simonse except for the hamster part.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I have few questions that I wanted to ask about Buddhism but had no one to turn to. I have some Buddhist lay followers friends but they too do not have answers to my questions. I found your blog and hope to seek your guidance.

    1. I recently found that in Taiwan, many Feng Shui masters are recommending to display the symbol of the kalachakra as a feng shui cure in their clients’ home (I have been studying Feng shui for more than 10 years myself). They called the symbol 十方自在 in Chinese and claim that it can ward off spirits and bad luck. I also found that many old Tibetan temples have this symbol. My question is whether it needs to be blessed by a achieved monk in order to work or it has power by itself? If not blessed, it is just a mere printed symbol and people are mislead to believe its power?

    2. As a close relative of mine is in ill health, I have tried chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra 108 times over a cup of water for her to drink. I have done this 3 times in all but not sure if it helps. I actually read bout this method online and also in the Medicine Buddha sutra. My question is whether one needs to be initiated to this mantra? A lay person chanting it will not have any effects?

    Thank you very much for you time. I enjoy your blog very much.

    Regards
    Alvin

    All humans have a perception of things. That perception may not be the reality of an object. The object itself has no real reality. the object cannot fulfill or not fulfill our perceptions. It all comes from our side and our side alone. But our perceptions of it and how we react to it may have adverse effects or positive.

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    I am new but 3 days ago I attended my father in law’s (FIL) Christian funeral which he converted 4 years ago. We got to know only now during my sister in law speech who was a Christian pastor. although he was baptised to Christian but he has never mentioned to us at all. I remembered my FIL told me but not the son that; one day when I die he wish to be cremated with his ashes to be thrown to the sea only. Yes he was cremated yesterday. On the first day of the wake service I couldn’t feel any peace, on the 2nd day I brought 7 lotus candles offered to Buddha and lit up with my children and told them chant OM MANI PADME HUNG and a bouquet of flowers too. I must share with you the candles light from what I learned from Rinpoche is the light of WISDOM yes I can find peace then. I chanted 20 malas on the 3rd day and my feeling of sadness was calmer yes, I understand Buddhism more about death & reincarnation again from your blog & transcript so the feeling of sadness was more calm then before. I am more accepting about Rebirth, Old aged, sickness & death. I understand about human suffering. My deepest appreciation from your Buddhadharma talk it really changed my life. It’s a miracle and magic I guess, one fine day I just needed to go Kechara Paradise to invite Je Tsongkapa home early this year without realising it was actually Tsongkapa day. In no time I think 10 days I can memorised Migstema so well. I do my chanting when my mind disturb and I am still on medication for my depression. Migtsema indeed calm my mind…. Every night if I am disturb again I will plug on my earphone and listen to your voices of Buddhdharma talk on YouTube to find peace and I can sleep rather I rely on the one medicine that put me to sleep.
    That’s wonderful for me too.
    We were grateful to have attended the children baptism on Wesak day and the children were officially baptised by Rinpoche’s blessing. I was afraid someone will convert my children if I don’t do something. They chant OM Ah RA Pa SA NA DHIH and wearing the Manjushri chakra too. I got them Tsongkapa box set each for (body speech & mind) and a stupa too.

    Warmest regards
    Josselynn

    Dear Rinpoche

    I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that your teachings have changed my life a lot. First of all, is your inspiration book “Why You Make Yourself Unhappy” how this book can changed my life. It’s amazing! I sincerely want to find out more about you and in depth towards Buddhism. Along the journey finding about Rinpoche I went into YouTube learning what I want to know about Buddhism. It’s so awesome as if I am there listening to you. I decided to find out about Kechara. My first visit I bought Tara pendant, immediately the 2 box sets of Tsongkapa & Setrap prayers but never approach anyone yet for a year. Until last September, I decided to write a mail to you personally and here I am since January 2014 I became member. Of course, when I first came to Kechara I request to meet you unfortunenately you have gone to US.

    Kind regards
    Josselynn

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.

This is one of the best Avalokitesvara thangkas I have ever seen. I rarely see an Avalokitesvara that draws me or I really like. I am very particular about thangka paintings. But this one is really done by a super skilled artist. The eyes are perfect and the gaze is the correct angle of calm/contemplativeness. The lips, nose and proportions are stunning. The coloring and feel is regality and serenity with great compassion. He feels alive. I would love to get a copy of this very much. Tsem Rinpoche

Look at this massive thangka of the Lord of Wisdom Manjushri in Tibet. The bigger the thangka it is believed, the more blessed the area will be. See all the people congregated around it to pay homage and make offerings. Amazing. May you all be blessed by this too and be connected to Manjushri. Tsem Rinpoche

Mr. Lai, the proud dad of Pastor David Lai. Mr. Lai has expressed how proud he is of his son and what he is doing for others. Mr. Lai is very happy his son David is a Pastor of Kechara and rejoices in the Dharma shared with others. Mr. Lai himself is a very kind and steady person and an important member of Kechara also who always keeps his promises. Many in Kechara respect and love Mr. Lai. Like father like son. Kind people.

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

I totally agree with this. Some vent out their anger, get attention or want to send messages to people and justify by saying it's their space their posting on and they can post what they want. Be it so, your space is seen my hundreds and it's public domain and you know that. So if others post otherwise to your views, why get upset? You invited it. Maybe that is what you wanted? Attention?

    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.

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche
