I grew up with two moms: here’s the uncomfortable truth that nobody wants to hear

by Robert Oscar Lopez, Tue Aug 14, 2012

(thePublicDiscourse.com) – Between 1973 and 1990, when my beloved mother passed away, she and her female romantic partner raised me. They had separate houses but spent nearly all their weekends together, with me, in a trailer tucked discreetly in an RV park 50 minutes away from the town where we lived. As the youngest of my mother’s biological children, I was the only child who experienced childhood without my father being around.

After my mother’s partner’s children had left for college, she moved into our house in town. I lived with both of them for the brief time before my mother died at the age of 53. I was 19. In other words, I was the only child who experienced life under “gay parenting” as that term is understood today.

Quite simply, growing up with gay parents was very difficult, and not because of prejudice from neighbors. People in our community didn’t really know what was going on in the house. To most outside observers, I was a well-raised, high-achieving child, finishing high school with straight A’s.

Inside, however, I was confused. When your home life is so drastically different from everyone around you, in a fundamental way striking at basic physical relations, you grow up weird. I have no mental health disorders or biological conditions. I just grew up in a house so unusual that I was destined to exist as a social outcast.

My peers learned all the unwritten rules of decorum and body language in their homes; they understood what was appropriate to say in certain settings and what wasn’t; they learned both traditionally masculine and traditionally feminine social mechanisms.

Even if my peers’ parents were divorced, and many of them were, they still grew up seeing male and female social models. They learned, typically, how to be bold and unflinching from male figures and how to write thank-you cards and be sensitive from female figures. These are stereotypes, of course, but stereotypes come in handy when you inevitably leave the safety of your lesbian mom’s trailer and have to work and survive in a world where everybody thinks in stereotypical terms, even gays.

I had no male figure at all to follow, and my mother and her partner were both unlike traditional fathers or traditional mothers. As a result, I had very few recognizable social cues to offer potential male or female friends, since I was neither confident nor sensitive to others. Thus I befriended people rarely and alienated others easily. Gay people who grew up in straight parents’ households may have struggled with their sexual orientation; but when it came to the vast social universe of adaptations not dealing with sexuality—how to act, how to speak, how to behave—they had the advantage of learning at home. Many gays don’t realize what a blessing it was to be reared in a traditional home.

My home life was not traditional nor conventional. I suffered because of it, in ways that are difficult for sociologists to index. Both nervous and yet blunt, I would later seem strange even in the eyes of gay and bisexual adults who had little patience for someone like me. I was just as odd to them as I was to straight people.

Life is hard when you are strange. Even now, I have very few friends and often feel as though I do not understand people because of the unspoken gender cues that everyone around me, even gays raised in traditional homes, takes for granted. Though I am hard-working and a quick learner, I have trouble in professional settings because co-workers find me bizarre.

In terms of sexuality, gays who grew up in traditional households benefited from at least seeing some kind of functional courtship rituals around them. I had no clue how to make myself attractive to girls. When I stepped outside of my mothers’ trailer, I was immediately tagged as an outcast because of my girlish mannerisms, funny clothes, lisp, and outlandishness. Not surprisingly, I left high school as a virgin, never having had a girlfriend, instead having gone to four proms as a wisecracking sidekick to girls who just wanted someone to chip in for a limousine.

When I got to college, I set off everyone’s “gaydar” and the campus LGBT group quickly descended upon me to tell me it was 100-percent certain I must be a homosexual. When I came out as bisexual, they told everyone I was lying and just wasn’t ready to come out of the closet as gay yet. Frightened and traumatized by my mother’s death, I dropped out of college in 1990 and fell in with what can only be called the gay underworld. Terrible things happened to me there.

It was not until I was twenty-eight that I suddenly found myself in a relationship with a woman, through coincidences that shocked everyone who knew me and surprised even myself. I call myself bisexual because it would take several novels to explain how I ended up “straight” after almost thirty years as a gay man. I don’t feel like dealing with gay activists skewering me the way they go on search-and-destroy missions against ex-gays, “closet cases,” or “homocons.”

Though I have a biography particularly relevant to gay issues, the first person who contacted me to thank me for sharing my perspective on LGBT issues was Mark Regnerus, in an email dated July 17, 2012. I was not part of his massive survey, but he noticed a comment I’d left on a website about it and took the initiative to begin an email correspondence.

Forty-one years I’d lived, and nobody—least of all gay activists—had wanted me to speak honestly about the complicated gay threads of my life. If for no other reason than this, Mark Regnerus deserves tremendous credit—and the gay community ought to be crediting him rather than trying to silence him.

Regnerus’s study identified 248 adult children of parents who had same-sex romantic relationships. Offered a chance to provide frank responses with the hindsight of adulthood, they gave reports unfavorable to the gay marriage equality agenda. Yet the results are backed up by an important thing in life called common sense: Growing up different from other people is difficult and the difficulties raise the risk that children will develop maladjustments or self-medicate with alcohol and other dangerous behaviors. Each of those 248 is a human story, no doubt with many complexities.

Like my story, these 248 people’s stories deserve to be told. The gay movement is doing everything it can to make sure that nobody hears them. But I care more about the stories than the numbers (especially as an English professor), and Regnerus stumbled unwittingly on a narrative treasure chest.

So why the code of silence from LGBT leaders? I can only speculate from where I’m sitting. I cherish my mother’s memory, but I don’t mince words when talking about how hard it was to grow up in a gay household. Earlier studies examined children still living with their gay parents, so the kids were not at liberty to speak, governed as all children are by filial piety, guilt, and fear of losing their allowances. For trying to speak honestly, I’ve been squelched, literally, for decades.

The latest attempt at trying to silence stories (and data) such as mine comes from Darren E. Sherkat, a professor of sociology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, who gave an interview to Tom Bartlett of the Chronicle of Higher Education, in which he said—and I quote—that Mark Regnerus’s study was “bulls**t.” Bartlett’s article continues:

Among the problems Sherkat identified is the paper’s definition of “lesbian mothers” and “gay fathers”—an aspect that has been the focus of much of the public criticism. A woman could be identified as a “lesbian mother” in the study if she had had a relationship with another woman at any point after having a child, regardless of the brevity of that relationship and whether or not the two women raised the child as a couple.

Sherkat said that fact alone in the paper should have “disqualified it immediately” from being considered for publication.

The problem with Sherkat’s disqualification of Regnerus’s work is a manifold chicken-and-egg conundrum. Though Sherkat uses the term “LGBT” in the same interview with Bartlett, he privileges that L and G and discriminates severely against the B, bisexuals.

Where do children of LGBT parents come from? If the parents are 100-percent gay or lesbian, then the chances are that the children were conceived through surrogacy or insemination, or else adopted. Those cases are such a tiny percentage of LGBT parents, however, that it would be virtually impossible to find more than a half-dozen in a random sampling of tens of thousands of adults.

Most LGBT parents are, like me, and technically like my mother, “bisexual”—the forgotten B. We conceived our children because we engaged in heterosexual intercourse. Social complications naturally arise if you conceive a child with the opposite sex but still have attractions to the same sex. Sherkat calls these complications disqualifiable, as they are corrupting the purity of a homosexual model of parenting.

I would posit that children raised by same-sex couples are naturally going to be more curious about and experimental with homosexuality without necessarily being pure of any attraction to the opposite sex. Hence they will more likely fall into the bisexual category, as did I—meaning that the children of LGBT parents, once they are young adults, are likely to be the first ones disqualified by the social scientists who now claim to advocate for their parents.

Those who are 100-percent gay may view bisexuals with a mix of disgust and envy. Bisexual parents threaten the core of the LGBT parenting narrative—we do have a choice to live as gay or straight, and we do have to decide the gender configuration of the household in which our children will grow up. While some gays see bisexuality as an easier position, the fact is that bisexual parents bear a more painful weight on their shoulders. Unlike homosexuals, we cannot write off our decisions as things forced on us by nature. We have no choice but to take responsibility for what we do as parents, and live with the guilt, regret, and self-criticism forever.

Our children do not arrive with clean legal immunity. As a man, though I am bisexual, I do not get to throw away the mother of my child as if she is a used incubator. I had to help my wife through the difficulties of pregnancy and postpartum depression. When she is struggling with discrimination against mothers or women at a sexist workplace, I have to be patient and listen. I must attend to her sexual needs. Once I was a father, I put aside my own homosexual past and vowed never to divorce my wife or take up with another person, male or female, before I died. I chose that commitment in order to protect my children from dealing with harmful drama, even as they grow up to be adults. When you are a parent, ethical questions revolve around your children and you put away your self-interest . . . forever.

Sherkat’s assessment of Regnerus’s work shows a total disregard for the emotional and sexual labor that bisexual parents contribute to their children. Bisexual parents must wrestle with their duties as parents while still contending with the temptations to enter into same-sex relationships. The turbulence documented in Mark Regnerus’s study is a testament to how hard that is. Rather than threatening, it is a reminder of the burden I carry and a goad to concern myself first and foremost with my children’s needs, not my sexual desires.

The other chicken-and-egg problem of Sherkat’s dismissal deals with conservative ideology. Many have dismissed my story with four simple words: “But you are conservative.” Yes, I am. How did I get that way? I moved to the right wing because I lived in precisely the kind of anti-normative, marginalized, and oppressed identity environment that the left celebrates: I am a bisexual Latino intellectual, raised by a lesbian, who experienced poverty in the Bronx as a young adult. I’m perceptive enough to notice that liberal social policies don’t actually help people in those conditions. Especially damning is the liberal attitude that we shouldn’t be judgmental about sex. In the Bronx gay world, I cleaned out enough apartments of men who’d died of AIDS to understand that resistance to sexual temptation is central to any kind of humane society. Sex can be hurtful not only because of infectious diseases but also because it leaves us vulnerable and more likely to cling to people who don’t love us, mourn those who leave us, and not know how to escape those who need us but whom we don’t love. The left understands none of that. That’s why I am conservative.

So yes, I am conservative and support Regnerus’s findings. Or is it that Regnerus’s findings revisit the things that made me conservative in the first place? Sherkat must figure that one out.

Having lived for forty-one years as a strange man, I see it as tragically fitting that the first instinct of experts and gay activists is to exclude my life profile as unfit for any “data sample,” or as Dr. Sherkat calls it, “bullshit.” So the game has gone for at least twenty-five years. For all the talk about LGBT alliances, bisexuality falls by the wayside, thanks to scholars such as Sherkat. For all the chatter about a “queer” movement, queer activists are just as likely to restrict their social circles to professionalized, normal people who know how to throw charming parties, make small talk, and blend in with the Art Deco furniture.

I thank Mark Regnerus. Far from being “bulls**t,” his work is affirming to me, because it acknowledges what the gay activist movement has sought laboriously to erase, or at least ignore. Whether homosexuality is chosen or inbred, whether gay marriage gets legalized or not, being strange is hard; it takes a mental toll, makes it harder to find friends, interferes with professional growth, and sometimes leads one down a sodden path to self-medication in the form of alcoholism, drugs, gambling, antisocial behavior, and irresponsible sex. The children of same-sex couples have a tough road ahead of them—I know, because I have been there. The last thing we should do is make them feel guilty if the strain gets to them and they feel strange. We owe them, at the least, a dose of honesty. Thank you, Mark Regnerus, for taking the time to listen.

    This is an interesting insight in to the lives of children growing up in same sex couples and the challenges they face. I think this article has opened my eyes a lot more.

  2. Phng Keng Hwa on Jan 31, 2016 at 9:34 pm

    Well, this was a vastly interesting article. Very informative and very thought-provoking.

    Right now, after reading this article, I feel very amazed at this side of the story we have never heard of. Granted, I’m not very interested in the LGBT or any of the actives or political issues concerning gay or bi-sexual people, this article really was an eye-opener for me.

    I’m quite shocked to see that even in the gay society,there is still a sense of hierarchy and boundaries within the community. Then again, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, seeing that this world seems to be addicted to drama and have a certain leisurely glee towards social entitlements.

    This article was, to me, profound in the sense that through his experience, Mr. Lopez was able to realise, in some way, that attachment leads to suffering. And though I am far from odd, I can relate to him in a small way, as I have been and still am, called weird. But for me, the weird people are the best people in the world. But even then, that view is very subjective.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this article. It was very thought-provoking and expands our view of the world.

    Your student,
    Keng Hwa. _/|\_

      All the issues in his childhood are results from an intolerant society which lack compassion, kindness and love. Where do you think gay people come from? Homosexuality is not an oddity. One cannot be ‘turned’ from staight to homosexual or visa versa. It simply just is. LGBT issues are at the core, fundamental issues about equality and basic human right to happiness. It would be helpful with less prejudice, hate and ignorance. Compassion, love, kindness are qualities inherent to the overall happiness in our society.

    Growing children does mirror their parents in many ways . That’s why parents need to set a good example . Having said that parents themselves are not faultless and may negligently pass on negative qualities to their kids . Not every person is the same , some are more affected by their childhood than others . For me , at different stages of our life, priority & goals change . We never stop learning new things in life .

  4. Joy on Dec 6, 2015 at 12:38 am

    Firstly I am amazed to learn that children who were brought up in an environment where both parents are of the same sex can grow up with so much psychological issues, now I understand why certain same gender parenting kids have somewhat weird behaviour that doesn’t quite fit it anywhere.

    This has broaden my understanding and empathy for them because I would think they would be more open and more adaptable to situations. I did not realise children of same-sex couples have such a tough road ahead of them.

    I also did not realise that even in LGBT groups there are stereotypes and people who make others feel guilty for being different. This is so funny coming from a group of people who themselves who had struggle for themselves to be accepted and hence created the LGBT movement.

    I am glad that Robert manage in the end to find that light at the end of the tunnel and somehow managed to write his issues out in support of many who are like him. I see him as a kind and sensitive being who cares for those like himself and wish them and different experience.

    At the end of it all I guess samsara will always be samsara… most importantly is how we deal with our situation and instead of creating more negative karma, we should create positive ones and Robert is finally doing that.

    • Jorge Arbes on Feb 5, 2016 at 3:11 pm

      Your response if full of ignorance and negativity. Try meditating on compassion, love and kindness. Oh, LGBT people are people too; not aliens.

      • Joy on Feb 5, 2016 at 4:17 pm

        Dear Jorge Arbes,
        I did not say that LGBT people are aliens, where did I mentioned so? In fact I am surrounded by them and some are family and even best friends.
        So there is no shame in that which I believe you have misunderstood and I apologise if what I said appear to be negative to you.

        However, the article gave me a better understanding on how tough it can be for a kid growing up in such a home as I mentioned “This has broaden my understanding and empathy for them because I would think they would be more open and more adaptable to situations. I did not realise children of same-sex couples have such a tough road ahead of them.” With better understanding which this post is trying to highlight, we can create a better society that is more compassionate to others being it gay or straight.

        To me I see them as just another human being who needs love, same like everyone else. In fact I admire some of them and their creativity. Some of my best friends are homosexual so I have no issues with them at all and like I said, some are even my family, and we love them all the same.

        Please be at peace as no one here is criticising LGBTs/Gays/Straight here. Those are all just “LABELS” after all, and striping it all off, we are all the same humans which is emphasised in Buddhist teachings. We are all here to learn, be open, and accepting.

        Thank you and hope you have a positive day.

  5. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Nov 30, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    I see Robert Lopez as a courageous person who never let his ‘unstable tumultuous years’ of childhood and teen years affect him. From the age of two till the age of 19(when his mum died), he was raised by his mother and her lesbian partner.He never knew a father figure and never knew any stabilizing influence of healthy parenting.He was treated as a social outcast and he himself isolated himself from others because as he said he hadn’t learnt anything “about traditional male and female social mechanisms”.

    After he was left on his own, he fell in with terrible company, as he joined the gay underworld.

    Despite such a negative state of things, he transcended it all as he made a sea-changing decision to lead a straight life and have a straight relationship with one woman, within the bounds of marriage, and to raise his family as a ‘conservative’ father.

    “Once I was a father, I put aside my own homosexual past and vowed never to divorce my wife or take up with another person, male or female, before I died. I chose that commitment in order to protect my children from dealing with harmful drama, even as they grow up to be adults. When you are a parent, ethical questions revolve around your children and you put away your self-interest . . . forever”. He took charge and took responsibility.As the responsible and loving father that he was, his children’s needs became his prime concern.

    Lopez reminds me very much of my Guru Tsem Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche also did not let a childhood of abuse from foster parents drag him down. He made a similar decision to transcend an ugly childhood. He put the needs of others before his own. He became a monk and has unwaveringly devoted his life to benefiting others through the spread of Dharma, showing love, care and compassion unremittingly all the way.Thank you Rinpoche.

    • Jorge Arbes on Feb 5, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      This is a rather immature view on this issue. It is not a question of gay/straight; as straight couples bring up insecure and traumatised children too. Actually more tsraight couples do that. How does one explain staright couples bringing up gay kids? Where do you think gay kids come from? Perhaps, if society was a kinder place where tolereance and acceptance is the norm; then, such bullying experienced by the writer will not exist. It is disappointing to see that as a pastor, you are not mindful of the big picture. Tolerance, compassion, loving kindness are traits missing in society today. No one transcend homosexuality. If so, can a staright person try to be gay? I think not. Dont let your prejudice misguide your judgement.

      • Pastor Han Nee on Feb 7, 2016 at 8:32 pm

        Dear Jorge Arbes,

        I just wish to point out that I have not criticized nor made any comment of my own about gay or straight marriages or partnerships. My comment on this blogpost was to highlight the courageous decision of Mr Robert Lopez. He has made me see and understand better about how society can put such terrible negative pressures on gay marriages and children of these marriages and partnerships. I am happy for Mr Lopez that his story has a happy ending as he relates it.

        I have good friends who are in gay relationships and straight relationships. Doesn’t make any difference to me. To me they are equally warm and caring people.

        I sincerely hope that such blogposts as this will make people more understanding and caring of others, especially those in gay relationships or marriages.

        Thank you.

    It is very interesting that the haunting at The New Inn is quite serious that people who were present at the moment witnessed paranormal sights. Unseen beings are part of almost every culture known on earth, being more feared in some than others. Therefore, it is amazing to see that people in the UK are not that fearsome of the unseen, as most of the people in the eastern culture don’t view the unseen beings as amusing.

    The burning times showed a single-minded and uncompromising campaign against a group of people labelled as witches, who are classified as having unacceptable views or behaviour, possess the ability of witchcraft. The “witches” or anyone found or believed to be witches will be subjected to unfair or malicious persecution. It is proof that humans are truly capable of such injustice and blasphemous judgement, playing God all the time.

    Steamboat or hot pot is a Chinese soup containing a variety of Asian foodstuffs and ingredients of mixed vegetables which we could choose . While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Hot pot is my favourite as it’s a healthy cooking of mixed vegetables of our choice , and a varieties of other food stuffs like deep fried bean curd skin or fu chok, fresh mushrooms and so forth depending whether one is a vegetarian or non vegetarian. There are plenty of soup choices which we can choose and will make every steamboat meal different that suits one tastes. Having hot pot with family and friends is a good way to foster relationship

    Lin Dai was a well-known Mandarin star actress of the Shaw Brothers Studio who was one of my favourites many years ago .She has acted more than 40 movies. I do enjoyed watching her movies that was only black and white those days . Amazing she could play a heroine role in classical Chinese beauty and the modern career woman. The film Shaw Brothers world lost a talented actress when Lin Dai committed suicide in 1964. Lin Dai won a number of awards been the Best Actress at the Asia Pacific Film Festival.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Cultures all around the world believe in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. Ghosts are among the most widely believed of paranormal phenomenon. I do believe they do exist . Paranormal investigators has provided scientific proof that ghosts really exist in a number of cases. Interesting…….they has collected a great deal of evidence over the past decade. Through recorded CCTV as well as the eye witness accounts which are very convincing to be true.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the interesting videos.

    It is indeed rare to see fish giving so much reaction and connect to human. I have the opportunity to visit the pond in Kechara Forest Retreat late last year and there were many Koi fishes . I understand that some of the fishes were rescued from fish store. The fishes swam freely and rejoice that they are always able to circumabulate Dream Manjushri statue in the middle of the pond. Thank you Rinpoche for showing us that we must always be kind and care for animals not only in this life but also for their future life.

    It is an interesting article about Jesus being a vegetarian and so many evidence to support this findings. No matter what religion we are, if we want to promote love, care, compassion and equality, we should support vegetarianism. How can eating meat promote all the good values mentioned since we are already discriminating animals who are to serve human. And needless to say all killings create pains and suffering to all beings. Hope more people realise that vegetarianism is the best method to practise compassion and love.

    Religion is the results of our practise. We choose a religion due to the blessings that led us on to the right path. The path is filled with Dharma that we apply in order for a complete turnabout of our attitude and the way we see things to happen. This would mean whatever that irks us, will no longer have an effect on us. The beauty of applying the Dharma and treating the Dharma as personal advice for us, help us to clear the irk worms that have been bred out of control before we meet the Dharma. These worms are vicious, vindictive, harmful, envious, arrogant, greedy, furious, ignorant, doubtful, and etc. that are bred by the negative thoughts, experiences and perceptions we had for as long as we live. The mind is so used to them to the point to believe that the (our) reality is pure negative.

    When we come to the Dharma, having given the knowledge and guidance by our compassionate and kind Guru who finds ways to help us with our transformation, to constantly give love and care while exposing our irk worms skilfully and creatively, we should be grateful and appreciative the kindness by transforming our mind. We might not like the methods the Guru use, but we can be assured that the motivation behind is of the purest and highest for our ultimate enlightenment. The Guru’s ‘job’ is to help us to liberate us from ourselves – the self that never existed but overwhelmingly coated with irk worms.

    When we have the blessings to meet the Dharma that is skillfully presented to us by our Guru, the moment we step into the Guru’s mandala, he or she is already paving the path for irk worms’ exposition in order for us to heal from our delusional mind. It is, therefore, our matter to deal with when we are irked. Instead of spending all energies into defending and justifying, we internalized the Dharma and cooperate with our Guru to cleanse the irk worms from our mind permanently.

    Unbelievable facts ……..which I did not know till I read this post except every time you sneeze your heart stops a second and all babies are colour-blind when they are born. I read it from medical journal. Many of those facts are new and first time learning…..to name a few….. the lighter was invented before the match, in space, astronauts cannot cry because there is no gravity and hummingbirds are the only creatures that can fly backwards. Sound unbelievable and amazing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Interesting…….any thing related to unseen being stories , historical sites and discoveries I always enjoyed reading and to know. Came across this post and I do enjoyed reading. The sea can be a haunted place, too. There have been dozens of ghost ships spotted floating around the sea could not imagined that. Vessel with no living crew aboard with things intact, and it may be a ghostly vessel and scary. Stories about ghost ships, vanishing into thin air or mysterious vessels found sailing the oceans with no one aboard.
    The mystery of the Arctic ghost ship Baychimo which abandoned 1914 cargo vessel and drifted for decades found after about 40 years ….really buffed me. All these mysterious ships are fantasized and fearsome . Some of these haunted ships continue to provoke speculation and fearful anticipation even till now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting post.

    Wow ……beautiful poem by Maching Labdron.
    She was believed to be an Mind Stream emanation (tulku) of Yeshe Tsogyal, as well as “an emanation of the ‘Great Mother of Wisdom. She was well thought of as a Tibetan tantric Buddhist practitioner, teacher and yogini. Machig had been an Indian yogi in her previous life. Very inspiring and beautiful filled with wisdom, worthy words to remind us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Poor Angel dog chained to the wall ………so inhuman and cruel to let the suffering dog to die in such a manner. Not only that Angie was abandoned in the first place and she was starve to death. Why can’ nt the former owner just leave Angie alone. Sad to see Angie condition, skinny and suffering in pain before dying.
    The authority concerned must stop this cruelty from happening and put a heavy fine if caught the culprit who did it. Do not hurt them , care and love them or at least put them in a home. Do hope more will people speak up against animal cruelty and bring awareness around.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions.

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
