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 hasnt 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 thats 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 its 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?

    To justify this as anything else but murder, is to make excuses so you can engage in the same murderous acts of violence yourself. A point can be made without engaging in the same behaviour you accuse other people of. If you’re accusing people of violence and murder, your point will be better made if you don’t engage in it yourself. Otherwise you’re just as hypocritical as you accuse them of being. Case in point? Greenpeace, WWF, SPCA, etc. all raise awareness of animal cruelty and endangered species, by doing the EXACT opposite of what hunters, poachers, animal abusers do.

    You are NOT an artist you are a butcher! YOUR art SUCKS, it’s ugly and has zero value just like you, UGLY AND ZERO VALUE. Put a gun in your mouth Satinka, stand in front of a canvas and pull the trigger, now that’s art, go ahead Satinka, DO IT!!!

  3. Candace Van Doren on Aug 16, 2016 at 10:27 am

    Katinka, YOU are a SOCIAPATH!!! I don’t eat any kind of meat so I am not a hypocrite. You are mentally ill, you need to check yourself into a psych ward asap!!! I’m coming to Amsterdam to visit my family maybe I will see you on the street. Maybe you should be tortured just like you torture those poor innocent animals that just want to be loved. YOU are pure EVIL!!! SATIN & KATINKA = SATINKA, this is YOU! YOU are going to get your face bashed in, better watch your back!!!

  4. Chris Chong on Feb 28, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this story to us. This story is very unique and could force us to think deep of what is true cruelty and what the society label as cruelty.

    I believe that what generated so much hate from the public is when she killed her cat and used the fur to make a bag out of it. The public could not accept that how can you kill your own pet and make a bag out of it’s fur. It is being labelled as cruelty. However, Tinkebelle explained that her cat is terminally sick and afraid of the vet. So, she sort of take matter into her own hand and euthanized her cat and used her fur to make a bag. She wanted to show the world that it is the same when we buy leather bags. The only difference between her “cat” bag and your leather bag is that you dont have feelings for the animal that died for your leather bag. How is it that her “cat” bag is cruel while your leather bag is totally acceptable. I agree her view on hypocrisy of the public.

    However, I do not agree with her way of delivering the message.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    I don’t think it is good to kill a cat just because it is unwell.
    Indeed cats don’t usually like to go to vet, but that does not give you a reason to kill a cat.
    What puzzles me is that which one is better?
    If you kill your pet and make it into a purse you are being over attached to your pet.
    However by buying other handbag brands you are still indirectly killing an animal.
    Still i don’t think it is correct to kill a sick cat for a bag as it isn’t correct and it is totally revolting.
    But one thing for sure is that you should not buy any handbags unless it is made of silk or other materials that don’t harm animals directly or indirectly.
    I do hope that these kind of cases will never happen again.

  6. Jutika Lam on Mar 4, 2015 at 9:39 pm

    Her saying that the cat whom his/her fur was used to create her cat fur bag was done because her cat was scared of the vet isn’t an excuse for her to use it’s fur to make a bag.

    To me, when your beloved pet has died, we should leave it’s body intact and properly bury or cremate it as a show of respect for the pet that was once our companion.

    Despite what she said about the cows that are slaughtered for it’s leather and meat,it doesn’t give her an excuse or reason to do the same.

    It is totally gross and inhumane.

  7. Phng Keng Boon on Mar 3, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    I am sure that Tinkerbell has no joy in hurting and killing these animals. I don’t support her in what she is doing but I agree with her on the hypocrisy the people give her. She is trying to raise awareness in how us, humans, are treating other animals that are not our pets. She is showing it by treating animals that are our pets the same way as we treat, for example, cows or snakes.

    But I find that this doesn’t justify her actions as even though her intentions are good, she is still creating negative karma to herself by killing her cat and being cruel to the guinea pigs and hamsters and snails.

  8. Phng Keng Hwa on Mar 3, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This was a very interesting post. Though she did partake in animal abuse, I feel that her intention was not to make the animal suffer, but to create awareness of what cruelty people are doing to animals out in the whole, wide world. Such as her example of what humans do to cows in order to make them hamburgers. So in a sense, what she does is good as she has created a lot of awareness, albeit it s through very bad publicity.

    However, though her intentions are not bad per se, this does not fully give her the right to kill. No one ever fully has the absolute right to kill, no matter what the intention.

    Thank you for posting this, it was really, truly interesting to see between your intentions and actions.

    Your humble student,
    Keng Hwa.

  9. will steel on Oct 11, 2014 at 2:37 am

    Which why parasites like you should not breed, you only serve to infect social values. Seriously a cheap excuse at an attempt to call yourself an artist. Move aside Katinka with your garbage, let the Real artist with talent display Art.

  10. Beatrix Ooi on Aug 11, 2014 at 12:09 am

    I think that everyone has their own methods or ways of remembering their dead pets. I’m not supporting nor judging her but to me, once an animal is dead, its dead, you won’t feel anything physically after you’re dead. Some find it cruel because she wears the fur coats of her dead pets. Some may also said that, she should have let the cats passed away peacefully and with their carcasses fully intact. But, no offense, I still disagree with what she did, she should not be so attached to something that is dead. She could have prayed for her cats to take a better rebirth or something like that. I just feel that we shouldn’t be too attached to the things around us, be it living things or non living things, because nothing is permanent. I think that regarding this matter, its based on personal perspectives, some find it cruel and some find it okay.

  11. 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.

  12. 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??

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    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.

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

    You ask if it is “Cruelty or Art”
    To me, it is neither…it’s just a wannabe trying to get publicity

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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!!!!

  25. 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).

  26. 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.

  27. perla on Nov 13, 2011 at 3:00 am

    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.

    I couldn’t turn my kitteh into a bag, I couldn’t even set a trap for a mouse, I had to have my neighbor do it.

  31. 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!!!

  32. 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.

  33. 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

  34. 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.

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

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

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

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

  37. 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

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. Sabina Giorgini on Jul 8, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    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.

  43. Jason on Jul 8, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    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

  44. briard Claire on Jul 8, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    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.

  45. liew chee khoi on Jul 8, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    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.

    • tenzin llhamo on Jul 8, 2011 at 8:53 pm

      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???

    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.

    Thank you so much for the sharing, Pastor Patsy. Reading this sharing reaffirms that Rinpoche’s teaching transcend time and space. What Rinpoche taught 20 years ago, he teaches us today. Rinpoche’s teaching is monumental to us, of the pervasiveness of Buddha’s Dharma that is the truth and wisdom in the purest form. He is the Bodhisattva who practices infallible Buddha’s way of compassion, wisdom and renunciation. Rinpoche infuses dharma knowledge onto everyone and showers people who he comes across with loving kindness and generosity tirelessly, since 1995! We are really so lucky to have Rinpoche here to continue turn the wheel of Dharma.

    Wonderful post ..from from TheBuddhism.Net a good sharing.
    I like these ( Every good action must be done with a good, pure motive; so when we give, pure motive means our generosity should be pure generosity, without hoping for any return or reward for what we do. )
    well said.
    Good reminder……

    Wonderful teachings on attitude when receiving offerings.I learned some important points here.Always dedicate the merits to the one who give or when someone does something nice for us.When we makes an offering, the recipient should rejoice in the person’s generosity. Its a good teachings and a reminder for us.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing the teachings on the attitude when receiving offerings.

    Very sacred Guan Yin images. Mostly Chinese temples in Southeast Asia did worship Guan Yin.This meant Guan Yin already penetrated as a most popular deity. Most of Guan Yin statue appeared in female forms yet origin is male forms. Anyway, Guan Yin can manifest whatever forms to help all sentient beings.

    I really like thousand arm Guan Yin. She look very fascinated and magnificent. This can’t be expressed by words but I just got the strong feelings when I saw Thousand arms Guan Yin.

    Thank you Rinpoche shared the Guan Yin article. This is very informative articles.It really gain extra knowledge on Guan Yin after read this article.

    We should have compassionate thought as all of these dangerous animals deserve our respect. Human beings do not have a privileged to take other beings’ lives and it is better to lose one’s own life than to kill another being.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila for sharing this meaningful article.

    Most of the time we will only say how dangerous and cruel the animals nature in killing or hurting human but we never thought that human kill them hundreds or thousand more times just so we can satisfy our taste bud and enjoyment.

    Human are in fact more cruel and terrible as we will use and abuse animals without caring if animals will suffer or not.

    Therefore creating awareness to love, care and not kill animals should be instilled since young. When we have a loving and caring society, we can sure help reduce unnecessary killing.

    Amazing to know what Dorje Shugden Wangze can help us.,control and exert positive influence our own minds. I am glad to understand and learned some new knowledge from this wonderful post.Wangze is an emanation of Manjushri and will only assist us if our motivation is genuine.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these teachings and the wonderful dedication for those who practice Dorje Shugden as Wangze or any other Dorje Shugden emanation.
    May Rinpoche be blessed with good health always.

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche, for sharing this post that shows us great work by the team, who worked behind the scene tirelessly, representing the good name of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to help Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende get medical checkup. The thoughtfulness and level of details carried out by the team was exemplary. The team also demonstrated meticulous and excellence work not only in taking care of Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants for eight days, but also in sharing the good works by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in Malaysia and USA. This is a good example for us to learn up in serving others.

    Thank you Dato’ Colin for sharing your journey in dharma and your method in applying dharma in a corporate world.

    I always think that it is difficult to practise dharma in corporate as everyone only have the same mindset that is to gain more profit at the fastest pace and therefore lots of greed and selfishness. But you have showed us that as long as we are perseverance and hold our principal and dharma strongly, we can apply it no matter which segment we are, be it corporate or not.

    Most importantly, is to set the right mindset and hold on to dharma principles. Continue to strive no matter how many challenges we have.

    Thank you Pastor Patsy for sharing your dharma journey. It is a great encouragement for many as you show that determination will surely bring result.

    It is important to practise dharma and to always focus out. When we keep practising this our mind will slowly transform to benefit others instead of feeding ourselves with all the greed, anger and selfishness.

    So happy to see the YAK – Millennials of Kechara – were learning to become an entrepreneur, be proactive and independent with good motivations. These practical experience will lay the foundation for leadership qualities, lateral thinking as well as a creative and innovative mindset. I wish to see more success for our Kechara YAK and looking forward to their upcoming activities! Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Origins of Kuan Yin been explained too. I do not know so much about it till i read these post…i only knew Kuan Yin as Goddess of Mercy.When i was young i used to follow my mother to temple to pray without knowing much..just as one one of a deity.On Guan Yin’s birthday, devotees observe a vegetarian diet in remembrance of her compassion and kindness.

    This is very auspicious that 2 great masters meet together and talk about dharma works for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    I am humble to see our precious guru to pay respect and prostrate to his friend, H.E. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche , who is a very learned scholar, master of tantra, always focused his time on teaching hundreds of students in Sera and in in-depth personal practice. This is a good example for us to follow and practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing attached with the beautiful photos.

    Very informative blog post that remind us.
    As human consume fish ,prawns and so forth from the sea laced with harmful chemical, toxins build up that lead to health problems in long term.Sad to know environment is so bad when some people do not care much about it.Sooner or later our oceans will be filled with rubbish,plastic if we are not doing enough to protect the environment.The plastic accounts for 15 per cent of the chick’s body weight…that is shocking.
    I do hope more people are aware of the truth behind the crisis destroying our seas.
    Thank you Rinpoche its a good 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.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

This is powerful and true. When someone disappoints you so many times, it cannot be an accident anymore. You need to have compassion for them to not do more negative karma and not allow it anymore and we need need to have compassion for ourselves too and not let them hurt us again.. Tsem Rinpoche

This is the road that leads to my house in the mountains. I have a small house and a lake nearby the house and I live there on vegan foods with my pets-Mumu loves running around the meadows. I have a large outdoor Vajra Yogini statue made of stone and we make offerings of juniper leaves burned to her daily as sang. I love living in the mountains away from the senseless repeating of actions in urban life. Urban life with its various pollutions do not connect us to who we are inside. I love this walking path to my retreat home where I will live for the rest of my life and on the way home, I pluck some flowers for my shrine to offer to the Buddha...thank you for allowing me to live here.

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR

    Sipra asked: Dear Pastors, For past 5 month or so I have been suffering from fear and anxiety. It has become difficult to live my daily life. I am mother of young child. Please help me.
    pastor answered: Dear Sipra, I'm sorry to read that you are going through this fear and anxiety, and i can understand that it has been effecting your daily life. You should seek professional help as this fear and anxiety can worsen if you don't get help and can deteriorate fast. Coupled with this, but by no means an alternative, you can engage in the daily practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden, which you can find here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden Lama Tsongkhapa's practice is very well-known to calm the mind from depression, fear and anxiety so will be very beneficial for your situation. When engaging in the practice, please concentrate and focus on the mantra of Lama Tsongkhapa. Dorje Shugden's practice on the other hand is very good for alleviating any obstacles we may be facing in life. Therefore, this may have to overcome the obstacles in life that are causing the fear and anxiety or even remove obstacles for professional help to be even more effective, so you can overcome your situation. The cause of this situation may be deeply rooted, therefore i would like to advise you to do both methods, find professional help and engage in the daily practice. Coupled together they have a better chance of solving your situation, than by themselves. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Fluxor asked: I am in a relationship with someone. I want to leave her, so i can give more time for social work and considering monastic life and being ordained in the future. I want to break up and do it gently, but I know she will be very mad and angry with me. Is it okay to leave her without notice? I will make a letter and arrange time to talk few days later when she is more stable emotionally. I think, it will be calmer way. Or should I talk to her first before I leave? I know this way she can be very mad and might do some abusive acts right away. But people say I need to respect her with talking to her first. I'm confused. I want to do it in a gentle and loving way that I don't want to bring her more suffering. Warmest metta, Fluxor
    pastor answered: Dear Fluxor, This is something that is a very difficult thing to do. If you have thought about this carefully and thoroughly, then you should do what feels right. However we must remember that the other person in the relationship may be reliant on you in some way. That being said, we can also hurt another person if we are not open and truthful about the situation. Instead we should go about the situation in the best possible manner to minimise harm and also to not create negative karma in the process, which is all too common when breaking up with someone, and this leads to more suffering in the future. You know the person who you are in a relationship with the best, however the method which you have mentioned may not be the most appropriate course of action. Rather than doing this, you should sit down with your partner and talk about the situation in calmer manner. This is the better approach, if you want to do this. You do need to respect her as a person with her own feelings, and in order to do the right thing in this situation, you should do so face to face and calmly. Following the method that you described may cause even more pain. If you do it calmly, respecting and honouring her as someone who has their own feelings, you are doing your best given the situation. Please remember that you don’t have to take monastic ordination in order to practice the Buddhist path. In fact within Kechara, Tsem Rinpoche has even started the tradition of lay pastors, who are lay people that have dedicated their lives to the practice of Dharma and the service of others. If you change your mind for any reason, Rinpoche has given a very good teaching on transforming a relationship to make it successful. You can find the video teaching here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/students-friends/ingredients-for-a-successful-relationship.html. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Tashi asked: Dear pastors, What are the mantras and sacred syllables of the 12 Tenma Goddesses? I'm trying to find one to the bodhisattva Dorje Yudronma and goddess Tahsi Tseringma. Who is Shiptak Gyene exactly and what is his mantra and purpose? Is simply putting "Namo" and then the name of the Buddha or bodhisattva work? Also, is there a mantra for pimples or near sightedness?
    pastor answered: Dear Tashi, As Dorje Yudronma and Tashi Tseringma are not enlightened protectors but worldly deities who have been subdued to protect the Dharma, their mantras and practices are not free available to all practitioners, according to the Gelug tradition (I am unsure if they are available freely in other traditions). Usually, to engage in these practices one must have first received empowerment into a yidam or meditational deity practice, after which one can request the spiritual teacher to teach the practice. The functions of these protectors are also embodied in other protectors who are enlightened, and whose practices are readily available. As embodiments of enlightened beings, they can also help along the spiritual path to enlightenment rather than just providing material needs and removing obstacles. These include the various emanations of Dorje Shugden, for example Shize Dorje Shugden who is excellent for pacifying diseases and lengthening one’s life, just like Tashi Tseringma and the Long Life Sisters. However as an emanation of Manjushri, Shize can also grant beneficial imprints and help to overcome the inner obstacles of negative emotions and habituations that we all face in life. Shiptak Gyene is a protector specific to the Gelugpa tradition. He was a layman who lived in Lhasa during the time of Lama Tsongkhapa. Whenever Lama Tsongkhapa would travel to Lhasa, Shiptak Gyene would be there, ready to serve Lama Tsongkhapa as best as he could and receive teachings on the Dharma. He was very devoted to Lama Tsongkhapa and arose a protector to help those with material needs if they are sincere pracitioners of the Dharma. As such, he holds a bowl of jewels to represent that he can aid pracitioners in this regard. You can see a picture of Shiptak Gyene here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/archive/deitypics/highres/Shiptak_Gyene.jpg. The word ‘namo’ means ‘I prostrate’, hence when you add the word before the name of a Buddha or bodhisattva, it basically means that you are prostrating to that being. While this has tremendous effect, as you are verbalising the prostration towards an enlightened being and therefore generating some merit, it does not have the same effect as a mantra. This is because a mantra itself in the essence of that particular being, in the form of sound. If you repeat that mantra over and over again, you bring the energies associated with that particular enlightened being into your life. For example if you recite the Medicine Buddha mantra, you bring healing energies into your life. But if you only add ‘namo’ to the beginning of their name, you are simply making prostration. It would be much more beneficial to recite the proper mantra for the particular enlightenment being you are propitiating. As for pimples, I have not come across a specific mantra for this in my own practice. However two very good mantras that you could recite are Black Manjushri or Hayagriva. These two deities are very well known for curing skin diseases of all types, and therefore may help in the situation. You can find out more about Black Manjushri practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/a-black-manjushri-sadhana-self-healing-meditation-and-exercises.html. The Hayagriva (a wrathful emanation of Chenresig) mantra is recited as: HRI PEMA DATRI HAYAGRIVA HULU HULU HUNG PHET. For nearsightedness, you can engage in the practice of Migchey Chrenrezig, which is an excellent practice for those with eye problems. You can find it here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/blessing-eye-problems.html. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Angela Yo asked: These past few months, I can't stop myself thinking about being ordained to be a nun. I don't know where to begin. I don't know if it suits me or not. But I really want to make this lifetime meaningful. Thank you.
    pastor answered: Dear Angela Yo, I rejoice to read that are thinking about become ordained as a nun. This is a very good aspiration to have and follows the example of the holy Buddha Shakyamuni. He showed us the way to make our life meaningful by becoming a Buddha to benefit others. If you have not already done so, you should join a Dharma centre and find a guru. By following the advice of a qualified guru, you can train yourself to hold the ordination vows in the future. Here at Kechara, those who have the aspiration to become members of the holy sangha, first become a Pastor, which is in between a lay practitioner and an ordained monk or nun. This way, we can train ourselves to understand and live by the vows before become ordained. As ordination is very special and holy, it is better that we are prepared before we take the vows. This way we can make the most use of holding the sacred vows on our spiritual journey to enlightenment. As you engage along this path, first you should study and understand the most basic of vows, which are the refuge vows. All other vows, whether ordination, bodhisattva or tantric vows are based on the refuge vows, and the keeping of these vows are the root cause of gaining enlightenment. In fact, all other vows are extensions of these vows. Therefore it is very important that we have a firm basis for our practice by understanding and living by these vows properly. As you progress on your practice, you can learn the teachings such as the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion, the Lam Rim and the Wheel of Sharp Weapons. All these teachings will aid you on the path to become an ordained nun in the future. If this is truly your wish, then during your daily practices you should make strong aspirational prayers that you are able to fulfil this. At the same time you should create the causes for this to occur. The way to do this is by supporting the sangha, you can do this by making any form of dana offering to them, from food, clothing, material assistance or anything else that they would need your help with. While doing this, you should generate the strong aspiration that you can become a member of the sangha. As the sangha are one of the Three Jewels, any offerings that you make to them, especially in terms of your time and effort, will generate a lot of merit because they are holding the holy vows. I hope this helps, and I make the prayer that your auspicious aspiration is fulfilled, that you make your life meaningful by holding the vows of an ordained nun. Thank you.
