Dear friends around the world,

The number of Jews who were killed in the genocide is overwhelming. They were beaten up, spat upon, stripped naked for public humiliation, tormented, killed, and subjected to all sorts of violence that their tormentors could come up with, just because they were Jews and did not adopt a religion similar to others. Can you imagine that? It is amazing how one group of people can discriminate, abuse, beat, segregate and even kill another group of people because their race, religion, culture or norms are different than their own. It is amazing this has happened and still is happening in many parts of the world. I have posted this here strictly for educational purposes. The sufferings of the people in this article is a shame and horrific and I am deeply saddened by this. Even though it is hard to see the pictures and read about, nevertheless, we must learn from the past. May this never happen again.

It is worryingly similar to how Dorje Shugden practitioners are treated in Tibet (and out of Tibet). Dorje Shugden practitioners are also spat upon, beaten up, outcast and even denied access to the most basic human rights like attending schools, dining out in restaurants and receiving medical help in hospitals. This is how bad the discrimination and ostracism is against Dorje Shugden practitioners. Of course the suffering of Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban and discrimination against them since 1996 are immense but nothing compared to the innocent Jewish people nevertheless it is there.

I stumbled upon this and thought that it may be of some benefit to you. The content may be disturbing to some, therefore viewer discretion is advised. I pray that all these conflicts resolve soon so that all sentient beings on this planet can live together harmoniously. I make prayers for all those who suffered so much. You are remembered here and prayers offered for you.

‘Blood oozed through the soil at grave sites. You could see the pits move, some of them were still alive’: The secrets of Ukraine’s shameful ‘Holocaust of Bullets’ killing centre where 1.6 million Jews were executed

  • WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
  • Jews were humiliated and murdered one by one in Ukraine during WW2
  • Many of them were forced to stand in front of mass graves and shot dead
  • Women were stripped naked, beaten in the streets during ‘organised riots’
  • Witnesses today have broken their silence to tell of Ukraine’s killing centre

Seventy years on from the end of the Second World War the full, shocking scale of the Nazi-inspired Holocaust in Ukraine is finally being revealed – thanks to pioneering work by a French Catholic priest to research the truth of the industrial-scale killing.

Around 2,000 mass graves of Jewish victims have been located where men, women and children were shot and buried by the Germans and their collaborators.

But there may be up to 6,000 more sites to uncover, with victims of this ‘Holocaust of bullets’ – so called because unlike in Poland and Germany where gas chambers were used as the means of slaughter – here most were summarily shot and buried nearby.

In many cases, the Jews were ordered to dig pits and then to strip naked before they were mown down by their murderers.

Some were buried in the unmarked plots while still alive.

Genocide: Between 1.4 million and 1.6 million Jewish people were killed in Ukraine during the second World War and buried in mass graves like this one in Kamianets-Podilskyi.

Cruelty: The Nazis mowed people down in a ‘Holocaust of Bullets’ and also subjected Jews to horrendous public humiliation by forcing them to strip in the streets (pictured) before beating them.

Violence: A Jewish man is kicked to the ground during a pogrom in the Ukrainian city of Lviv in 1941.

Unthinkable: Witnesses have told of how the Nazis killed Ukrainian Jews (pictured) ‘for fun’, ‘out of anger, boredom, drunkenness’, or ‘to rape the girls’.

Blood oozed through the soil at sites of these graves, according to accounts assiduously collected by French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois, who began his search by seeking to trace his grandfather’s experience as a prisoner of war held in a concentration camp by the Nazis in Ukraine during the Second World War.

He uncovered accounts of how Jews were killed by the Nazis ‘for fun’, or ‘out of anger, boredom, drunkenness’, or ‘to rape the girls’.

Yet the Soviet Union, for its own motives, obscured the full scale of the Holocaust on its own territory.

Leading historian Mikhail Tyaglyy told MailOnline the number of Jewish victims in Ukraine is between 1.4 million and 1.6 million, significantly higher than the oft-quoted figure of around one million.

The priest’s search took him to four sites around Rava Ruska, close to the Ukrainian border with Poland, where 15,000 Jews were slain, and also the site of a Nazi camp where his grandfather Claudius Desbois had been held as a prisoner of war.

Gradually, elderly locals who had kept quiet all their lives – mainly under Soviet rule – opened up to him, as hundreds more did in many other villages and towns in Ukraine.

One account from Rava Ruska was of a Nazi officer who spotted a young Jewish woman running out of the ghetto to buy butter at the market. He ordered her to be stripped naked, and demanded the trader smear her with the butter after which he decreed her beaten to death with sticks.

Atrocity: Sometimes the Nazis would make the Jews dig the pits before they shot them to death – and many of the victims were buried in unmarked plots (pictured).

Assault: Not only were the Jews in Ukraine mowed down by Nazi shooters, many were subject to brutal public beatings on the country’s streets (pictured).

Infanticide: The beating of Jewish women in the streets of Ukraine (pictured) was a regular occurrence and one witness told how a cruel Nazi grabbed a woman’s two-year-old child and beat its head against a wall.

In another case he recounted how ‘an unspeakably cruel German soldier grabbed a Jewish woman’s child from her’.

He added: ‘He was barely two years old, and he took him and banged his head repeatedly against the wall… The child died in pools of blood in front of the parent’s eyes.’

In separate testimony, an elderly witness called Yaroslav showed him to a site outside the town, and told him how he witnessed the horror of mass killing as a 13 year old boy in 1942.

A German arrived alone on a motorcycle. He rode around the village. Everyone wondered why. It turned out, he was planning the site of what would become Rava Ruska’s Jewish mass grave

Father Patrick Desbois, Catholic priest

He was the first of the elderly villagers to speak: many others followed him, here and in other locations.

Yaroslav described how the Jews arrived on foot and were forced to undress before being marched to ‘the side of a grave’ in Rava Ruska.

‘Yaroslav brought me in the forest with 50 farmers, very old people who were present at the killings,’ Father Desbois said.

‘They described one by one what happened. One person said a German arrived alone on a motorcycle.

‘He rode around the village. At the time, everyone wondered why. It turned out, he was planning the site of what would become Rava Ruska’s Jewish mass grave.’

On this occasion, some 1,500 Jews were marched to the huge pit, dug earlier by other Jews who had been killed with explosives.

The group seen by Yaroslav were then shot, their bodies layered on top of each other and covered by local youths from the village who had been requisitioned by the Germans.

Their clothes were ransacked for cash and valuables.

Organised attacks: The pogroms were a part of systematic anti-Semitic violence that included beatings and killings which led to the deaths of 4,000 Jews in Lviv (pictured) – 31 miles from of Rava Ruska.

Opening up: Elderly Ukrainians who witnessed the horror of mass killings and public beatings (pictured) are now ending their vow of silence.

Helpless: A badly-injured Jewish man struggles to stand up after being beaten at a pogrom in Lviv, Ukraine in 1941.

Tricked: The Germans claimed that all the Jews of Rawa Ruska (pictured today) would be sent to work camps but they were instead taken to the forest at Borove and executed.

The secrets of Ukraine’s shameful ‘Holocaust of Bullets’12

Chilling past: An elderly witness called Yaroslav showed the priest a site outside the town of Rava Ruska (pictured today) and told him how he witnessed the horror of mass killing as a 13 year old boy in 1942.

After the burial ‘the earth moved’ from the helpless last struggles for life of those wounded but buried alive in this mass grave.

A week later, blood was still seeping out from this macabre site.

Elderly Olha Havrylivna – aged 12 when she witnessed the chilling atrocity here – remembered: ‘We saw arrests, killings, executions.

They brought them to the edge of a pit and shot them. But you could see the pit move, because some of them were still alive

Olha Havrylivna

‘They brought them to the edge of a pit and shot them. But you could see the pit move, because some of them were still alive. We were young and it was hard to watch. It was a tragedy, a great tragedy.

‘The day we came to see they brought a lot of Jews here. There must have been 60 or 70. We looked on. We didn’t go too near, we stayed over there, but we children could still see everything.’

Olha told of how 15 German soldiers stood all around the pit where their captives were standing in groups.

The opened fire on the helpless Jews who dropped back-first into the pits.

Another witness, Gregory Haven, recalled how the Germans had before the killings how they ‘ordered all the Jews in the village to wear an armband on their right arm with the Star of David.

The cloth was white and the star black. The Jews had to give up the milk from their cows’.

Deceased: A group of bloodied Jewish victims lie dead after a night of violence at a pogrom in Lviv.

Doomed: The priest’s search took him to four sites around Rava Ruska (pictured), close to the Ukrainian border with Poland, where 15,000 Jews were slain.

The Nazis ‘began by shooting old people and children, they left people between the ages of 18 and 45 to make them work’.

‘Three kilometres away, they killed them, people fell like flies. I didn’t see them but I heard the shots. I saw a young Jew who brought corpses in a cart to the Jewish cemetery. It was during the winter of 1942, there was blood and the ground was red.’

After one of the mass killings, in the evening, he recalled: ‘We began to smell an odour and then, as it smelled of death, they forced people who had carts and horses to bring sand there.

Many people were requisitioned to dig the mass graves, to fill them, to bring the Jews in horse-drawn carts, to bring back their suits, to sell the suits, to put ashes on the blood

Father Patrick Desbois, Catholic priest

‘They also put chlorine, that allowed them to lower the level of the pit by one metre, and the blood stopped running’.

Locals went there ‘because the Jews had undressed there and people saw the Germans taking the civilian clothes of women and men, they came to see if they could find something – money, rings, gold watches’.

The priest’s grandfather, a French political prisoner, went home after his internment during which he survived eating dandelions and grass.

Desbois said: ‘He never spoke. He only said that outside the camp was worse than in the camp. I wanted to understand why, and I discovered that 18,000 Jews were shot in this village, Rava Ruska.’

It became clear to him that elderly Ukrainians like Yaroslav, witnesses to this horror, wanted to end their vow of silence on the terrible things they had seen in their youth.

‘People who were present at the killings wanted to speak before they die,’ he said.

‘Many people were requisitioned to dig the mass graves, to fill them, to bring the Jews in horse-drawn carts, to bring back their suits, to sell the suits, to put ashes on the blood. Fifty different jobs.’

Bloody: Blood oozed through the soil at sites of mass graves (pictured), according to accounts assiduously collected by French Catholic priest Father Patrick Desbois.

Witnesses: The harrowing accounts of those who survived the massacre in Rava Ruska (pictured) have been collected by a French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois.

Mass extermination: The Nazis used gas chambers to cruelly kill millions in Germany but in Ukraine, they shot Jewish people and buried them nearby.

Dark history: This pile of bones was discovered in the Ukrainian town of Belzec, around 10 miles away from the site of four mass graves in Rava Ruska.

He explained: ‘Thirteen German private trucking companies came to work in Rava-Ruska.

‘The Nazi killers hired these German companies to move the bodies to mass graves. People must understand, Rava Ruska was a huge killing centre: first for the Jews, then for political prisoners, and then for the local population and the Roma. Each person who was killed here was an individual. We cannot forget this.’

Some 32,000 were buried around Rava Ruska and in neighbouring towns like Bakhiv, where for years farmers have dug up human remains – and in so doing found mass graves – as they ploughed the fields.

One veteran Tikhon Leshchuk, now 89, recalled how his father, a priest, hid a Jewish girl in their house throughout Nazi occupation.

‘On 27 June 1941, German troops came into Rava Ruska. The solders destroyed the Jewish cemetery and soon made a Jewish ghetto in the town centre.

‘The market square and the Jewish quarters around it became a ghetto. All the Jews from Rava Ruska and the near by villages were brought there,’ he said.

His best friend at school – a Jew – suddenly vanished, presumably shot by the Nazis.

‘One day when we were in the village my father’s friend came. She was a Jew and she brought her 10 year old girl and asked my father to let her stay with us.

‘My father agree and Anna, the girl, hid with us all through the years of German rule. I’m not sure what happened with her mother but Anna survived and later became a school teacher in Rava Ruska.’

A witness from Bakhiv, Temofis Ryzvanuk, then 14, told him how Germans beat the Jews with whips to force them to dig the holes into which they would be buried.

‘We were so afraid of the Germans. They had things on their caps, they were terrifying.

‘My father’s brother said: “Don’t be afraid, no one is going to kill you. They’re only killing Jews. And they realized that they were going to be killed”.

Courageous: One veteran Tikhon Leshchuk (pictured), now 89, recalled how his father, a priest, hid a Jewish girl in their house throughout Nazi occupation.

Memorial: There was also a mass grave at Pechora (pictured), Ukraine, where many Jews were murdered.

Victim: Women in Lviv (pictured) were beaten routinely while one survivor from Rava Ruska has told of how a Nazi ordered a woman to be stripped naked, smeared with butter and beaten to death.

‘They stripped them naked, men and women. When they had killed them, they put them beside each other, head to head, to pile in as many as possible, to save space. The Germans had automatic rifles and when they got close to the pit they shot them.’

Temofis described the bloody execution as a ‘production line’ that was ‘so well organised’ that it only took a few minutes for everyone to be killed.

‘They had barely got out when they fell and were pushed in and piled together, head to head like herrings. Then the next wagon-load arrived, and then the next,’ he said.

Desbois warned: ‘A whole part of the genocide has not been declared.

‘The challenge is to collect the maximum amount of evidence about the killing of the Jews in these countries and find out about the mass graves.

‘Tomorrow the witnesses will disappear and the deniers will overreact, saying that the Jews falsified the story.

‘I always say, the Holocaust was not a tsunami. It was a crime. And when there’s a crime you have evidence. It’s very easy to find evidence in these villages.’

In all, more one million Ukrainian Jews were murdered by Hitler’s troops, and Father Desbois and his humanitarian organisation Yahad, in Unum, are seeking to identify the sites and erect memorials but also to help relatives track where their ancestors were slain, and now lie buried.

‘Twenty five years ago, I learned that in Rava Ruska there was a camp where 25,000 Soviet prisoners were killed by the Germans,’ he said in this village, once a thriving town with 42 per cent of its population Jewish.

‘There was a memorial for the Soviet prisoners. But there were no memorials for the mass graves of the Jews.’

He had now ensured there is a memorial here – erected in May this year – and that the graves, and the memory of what happened are protected.

Selfless task: Father Desbois (pictured) is seeking to identify the sites of mass graves and erect memorials but also to help relatives track where their ancestors were slain.

Obligation: ‘We will come back to the last grave where they killed the Jews… We have a duty to victims because each and every one of them had a name,’ Father Desbois told MailOnline.

Inhumane: Backed by their new Nazi occupiers, Ukrainian mobs would rip women’s clothes off in the streets during organised riots known as Pogroms.

But it was his experience in Rava Ruska – which was also on the main railway line to the death camp of Belzec in Nazi-occupied Poland where up to 600,000 were exterminated in gas chambers – that led him to expand his search across the country.

‘We want to show that we will come back.’ he said.

‘We will come back to the last grave where they killed the Jews… We have a duty to victims because each and every one of them had a name.’

He has estimated that there may be another 6,000 sites still to find, reported Deutsche Welle.

Elsewhere in Ukraine, he heard from Nikola Kristitch, who was aged eight in 1942, when he saw a vision of hell that haunted him for the rest of his life.

He was hiding in the trees when he saw dead children being thrown by hand into a pit – a mass grave.

Adults ‘were completely naked and walked with the Rabbi at their head. He gave a sermon, to all those who were already there. And the cars kept coming, there were more and more people and they went into the pit in rows. They all lay down like herrings.

‘They lay down and there was one sub-machine gun and two Germans, they had the skull and crossbones on their caps. They fired a burst at the people lying there, and then more went in and another burst.

‘They kept shooting them until nightfall. And we watched. Then the Germans went back again to get the villagers to cover the grave. People hid to escape doing it. And us kids, we hid in the bushes, out of curiosity, to see.

‘That night, the people covered it in, but the ground was still moving, for another two days. The ground heaved. I remembered one of the girls, a young girl. Her panties were around her ankles.

Remembrance: The location of a mass grave in Pikov (pictured), Ukraine, was turned into a memorial after the war.

Death machine: A map of the extermination camp in Belzec, around 17km away from Rava-Ruska.

‘A German fired at her and her hair caught fire. She screamed and he took an automatic rifle, got into the grave and fired.

‘The bullet ricocheted off his knee and he bled everywhere. He bandaged his knee, he was half undressed and then he emptied his round. He even killed Jews who still had their clothes on, he couldn’t wait he was so crazed with rage. He fired at everybody, he was crazy.’

A sign of what was to come under the Germans was seen in the Lviv Pogrom of June 1941 immediately after the Nazis entered the city after pushing out the Red Army.

A Ukrainian mob, eagerly backed by the new occupiers, stripped and beat Jewish women in the streets who were subjected to public humiliation.

This was part of an orgy of anti-Semitic violence that included beatings and killings which led to the deaths of 4,000 Jews in Lviv (also known as Lvov), which is 31 miles south-east of Rava Ruska.

‘The topic of the Holocaust was almost banned in Soviet times,’ Mikhail Tyaglyy, historian of the Ukrainian Centre of Holocaust Study, told MailOnline.

For modern Ukraine the subject is difficult, too, because it means admitting a role for nationalists in colluding with the Nazis, in part because some preferred a German occupation to Stalin’s as the lesser of two evils.

Soviet history neglected the anti-Semitic aspect of the Jewish killings, lumping these deaths together with total losses in the USSR.

Death: Six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust in Europe, according to the co-president of Association of Jewish Organisations and Societies in Ukraine.

Catalysts: ‘The Nazis did their best to inspire pogroms (pictured) everywhere they came,’ a historian at the Ukrainian Centre of Holocaust Study told MailOnline.

Widespread: Iosif Zisels, co-president of Association of Jewish Organisations and Societies in Ukraine, said that one in four Jews killed during the Holocaust were Ukrainian Jews (pictured).

Inhumane: A woman is cruelly stripped naked during a pogrom, where large numbers of people would gather to attack Jewish people and their shops.

Soviet history has largely neglected the anti-Semitic aspect of the Jewish killings, lumping these deaths together with total losses in the USSR.

Death: By 1945, some three million non-Jewish Ukrainians had been murdered by the Germans, in addition to the Holocaust.

‘We are touching the topic of Ukrainian nationalism here and it is a complicated matter. The situation in Ukraine was not so different to what was going on in other Soviet regions which were occupied by Nazis – everywhere they relied on local nationalists, who often blamed Jews for supporting the “Moscow-Bolshevik regime”, as they said at the time.

‘Such attitude easily inspired pogroms as we had in Western Ukraine.

‘The Nazis did their best to inspire pogroms everywhere they came. But pogroms is one thing, and systematic extermination of the Jewish population which was organised purely by the German Nazis is another.

‘It is true that radical nationalists helped Nazis in guarding and performed other tasks. But Nazis did not trust mass killing of Jews to locals.’

Tyaglyy added: ‘It is vital for all Ukrainians to keep memories of what happened in Ukraine, to come back to it, because this experience can teach us many important lessons needed nowadays. ‘

He said: ‘There may be differences in calculating the number of Jewish population in Ukraine before the war, it is about including or not including the Eastern regions of Poland after Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, but in general we can say that at least a half – if not more – of all Ukrainian Jews were killed in Holocaust at our territory.’

Iosif Zisels, co-president of Association of Jewish Organisations and Societies in Ukraine, said that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust in Europe.

‘Of these, 1.5million to 1.6million were Ukrainian Jews,’ he said, ‘In other words, one in four were Ukrainian Jews.’

He added: ‘There are certain stereotypes about participation of Ukrainian nationalists in pogroms in the early war years which were planted by Soviet history.

Killers: Although some ‘radical nationalists’ helped the Nazis, they did most of the killing of local Jews in Ukraine (pictured) themselves.

Aftermath: Some historians claim that 5,000 Jews died as a result of these pogroms in Lviv.

Brutal: They also claim that in addition to these 5,000 killed, another 3,000 people who were mostly Jews were executed in the municipal stadium by the Germans.

Extinguished: Following the 1941 pogroms, the harsh conditions in Lviv (pictured) and the deportations of Jews to concentration camps all but eradicated the local Jewish population.

‘It is true that the local population did cooperate with German Nazis in the occupied territories but the majority of them were Russian.

‘Russia makes a point about Ukrainian nationalists because it is keen to divert suspicion from itself.’

The notion of Ukrainian nationalists colluding with the Nazis was a vivid horror played on by Soviet propaganda, and now seized on again by the Russian authorities in branding ‘fascist’ those who currently want to be outside Moscow’s sphere of control.

Hitler had planned to eradicate over half of Ukraine’s population so that the country’s rich farmland could be repopulated with Germans in their so-called quest for Lebensraum.

By 1945, some three million non-Jewish Ukrainians had been murdered by the Germans in addition to those killed in the Holocaust.

The priest is unapologetic over his campaign in Ukraine.

‘Why do we come back to Ukraine?’ he asked. ‘Because one day we will have to go back to Iraq, because one day we will have to go back to the last mass grave in Darfur.’

Unless the lesson is learned from the Holocaust ‘tomorrow will be the same story’.

Yahad’s executive director Marco Gonzalez warned: ‘Unfortunately, this form of genocide, the ‘Holocaust by Bullets’, is the model for mass killings today.

‘The lessons to be learned are practical and the details need to be exposed for all to see and understand.’

Historian Mikhail Tyaglyy said the truth about the Holocaust in Ukraine must be taught to young people.

‘It is important to all times and all generations. Radical extremism and anti-Semitism still exists, and this is why it must be taught.

‘If we look at modern German society, we can hardly see any signs of anti-Semitism and xenophobia there, but it became possible because of long term wise educational, cultural and historical policies of the German state within the last decades. ‘

    So much hatred and animosity to another fellow human being. Which makes me think that nationalism, being loyal to one’s race or creed is not exactly a good thing at all. In fact quite damaging. Loyalty to such sentiments can make one descent in to the killing and genocide of a rival race or nation.

    • Marek on Dec 24, 2016 at 5:47 pm

      Chairman Mao killed 150 million of hid own people, there was also the Armenian genocide
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide and perhaps many more others – casualties of the British Empire, any Empire – Roman Empire, Japanese Empire, Chinese Empire, French Empire, casualties of the conquistadors, casualties of colonisation globally – we all hope it will stop

      • Wan Wai Meng on Dec 25, 2016 at 12:02 am

        Yes there was also the Spanish Inquisition, we need a revolution of kindness and acceptance, in our world. Or some form of awakening that all humans are the same, all want happiness and do not want suffering. May it happen very soon. the Momondo journey like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fw7FhU-G1_Q helps people / humans to understand that, there is no such thing as a pure race or racial identity.
        Either that, or alien invasion (hopefully that will not causes human extinction), hopefully humans for once can unite for its survival like how they have it in the movies and also the ideal that Star Trek wanted to live up to when it first debut on tv.

    Reading this article had brought tears to my eyes, all the sufferings that the Jews had to go through just for their religion. It is amazing how the frustration, anger and hatred of one man, Adolf Hitler was able to bring on such mass sufferings. And the thing is he was able to motivate directly or indirectly so many to follow his war of pain and horror. I have read of World War II during my school days but this article really brings it so real to me with the pictures showing cruelty and death. As Tyaglyy said all these memories must be kept so that people can learn from history.

    And yet, here now, we have the Syrian war, after the Iraq war, after the Afghanistan war….hmmm, makes one wonder at such coincidence. Then there are the skirmishes between Pakistan & India, Palestinians & Isreal, North & South Korea, etc. From all these, we know the weight of the world’s collective karma and it’s ever increasing heaviness on a daily basis. Is there any wonder why majority of the people are unhappy when we read the Wheel of Sharp Weapons and learns that karma repeats? I can’t begin to imagine the burden of the compassionate Gurus and teachers to teach and bring the sanity back in this world with so much ignorance and heavy karma. Many who had the merits to see, meet and receive teachings for the Buddha himself, ie the Dalai Lama, still chose to be ignorant with imposition of the ban on Dorje Shugden practice, justifying it with all sorts of unfounded reasons and then wishing to keep the sufferings in place even when the Dalai Lama is softening his stance towards Dorje Shugden. Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha, may Lord Dorje Shugden spread his compassion to all and may the ban be swiftly lifted with full acceptance of enlightened Dorje Shugden and his beneficial practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing us this article to remind us all the travesty of war which had included religious discrimination that lead to mass execution. May history be remembered and never to be repeated.

    As I scroll through the post, there are only 2 emotions that comes to my mind. The first being anger, and the second is sadness. Anger because no one should be treated in the way that they are being treated. No man is lower than another person because of their believes or even where they are being born into. Being a Jewish, is something that they are being born into. It is not a choice that they had. Why should people be beaten or abused because of the difference that they do not choose. It is ridiculous.

    Sadness because no one should be going through the pain that these Jewish had to go through. The abuse is not only physical, but also mental. It is mental torture to them as things like this should not be happening like this. It is sad that the man are just being beaten up like that. Or even have the women being shamed in the manner like what they have gone through is just pure cruelty. It does no benefit by the end of the day.

    The only thing that is happening is that it adds on to the pain that these people when they are not able to do their practice freely.

    This is very similar to the issue on Dorje Shugden where Dorje Shugden practitioners are being persecuted because of their religion choice. It is unfair for anyone to be treated in manners like this. We are all equal and should be all treated with equality.

  4. Samfoonheei on Sep 24, 2016 at 7:24 pm

    Sad ,,,very sad knowing the secrets of Ukraine’s shameful holocaust.
    My tears flows freely after looking at those horrible sad pictures even though it happen many years ago.Could not imagine how those who have witnessed that holocaust gone through.Just because of differences of religion and faith between them they have suffered, executed,tortured and so forth.French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois,uncovered the secrets for all to see and understand of Ukraine’s holocaust’.Its a good for us and the rest of the world to know and told to younger generation.How Dorje Shugden practitioners are treated in Tibet and outside of Tibet was similar to this holocaust in Ukraine.Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban and discrimination against them but nothing compared to the innocent Jewish people.
    May all the conflicts will end soon so as all do live harmonous and peaceful .
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this touching article.

    It makes one sick in the stomach viewing this pictorial holocaust by the Nazis simply because these people are Jews. Are they also not human beings, they are insanely killed, murdered for their beliefs in another faith.
    History is repeating itself as can been seen with the example on the current wars between Israel and the Arabs, from this we can learn that it clearly defines the law of causation and effect. Though it can be argued that these Arabs are of a different faith but no one can deny the universal law on cause and effect. What are the reasons for these senseless wiping out of another religion, it all boils down to human’s superiority over a weaker opponent, enjoying the power to have dominion over a lesser and weaker country. This supremacy would continue indefinitely as long as human kind fails to abide by their proper religious teachings. I would view all these as belonging to a country collective karma.
    One may ask on how we can stop all these from continuing I do not see an end at this moment because basically the world has tilted to an angle weigh down by negativity. It requires a lot more to keep this balance and perhaps an intervention from God would be timely before the world end itself with nuclear warfare, chemical weapons and the reality is, it really is looming around the corners.

    Just because they were Jews and did not adopt a religion similar to others, the Jews were humilated and murdered one by one in Ukraine during WW2. Seventy years on, from end of the second world war, these are the shocking scale of the Nazi-inspired holocaust in Ukraine which is finally revealed by a french catholic Priest. As photographed and recorded, it is said,”The catholic priest, Father Desbois, whose grand-father was said to be a french political prisoner, was unapologetic over his campaign in Ukraine. Unless the lesson is learned from the holocraust “Tomorrow will be the same story’, he said. The lessons to be learned are practical and the details needed to be exposed for one and all to see and understand. It is said that Hitler had planned to eradicate over half of Ukraine’s population and by 1945, some three million non-Jewish Ukrainians had been murdered by the Germans in addition to those killed in the Holocaust! As historian Mikahail Tyaglyy said, “the truth about the Holocaust in Ukraine must be taught to young people”. It is important to all times and all generations, radical extremism and anti-semism still exists and this is why it must be taught.” May all Negativity and degeneration be ended. May bliss and justice prevail like the waxing moon for all, including our Dorje Shugden’s Ban. May it be auspicious for all sufferers to enjoy the glory of Joy and perfection. Om Benza Wiki Bitana Zoha.

    These pictures are a powerful evidence that evokes compellingly strong emotions in all who see them. It is pure hatred, discrimination and terrible karma to be killed just because of one’s ethnicity. It is terrible proof of our lack of humanity.

    You can see that when someone powerful decides to sideline and discriminate a group of people, others would join in as well with their own agenda in mind. It’s incredible how civilization of science, industrialization and so forth has degenerated towards the decision to get rid of a single race.

    No matter how affluent we become or how far we advance in our scientific achievements, we remain no different than savages when it comes down to men who allow discrimination, cruelty and inhumanity to rein free. Even animals do not stoop so low as to kill their own kind for petty reasons.

    Although an extreme similarity, it is still similar in which discrimination is meted out with Dorje Shugden practitioners. Its good that in today’s age of mass media and social media, discrimination would never be allowed to grow into such massive scale. Nevertheless, we still have to highlight the injustices of discrimination against Shugden practitioners.

  8. Choong on Sep 16, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    The Jews were not the only group singled out by Hitler’s Nazi regime and its copycats.

    An estimated half a million Gypsies, at least a quarter million mentally /physically disabled persons, and more than three million Soviet prisoners-of-war were also victims.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, Social Democrats, Communists, partisans, trade unionists, Polish intelligentsia and other undesirables were also victims of the hate and aggression.

    It’s a weird fact but hate does not discriminate. The hate arising from a group of people against Dorje Shugden practitioners is the same hate that arose in the era of the Nazis. How can the world generally or HH Dalai Lama specifically not do something to stop this cancer?

    Thank you Rinpoche for this reminder. It is true that we cannot control or escape death. Therefore we would never know when is the last day. Knowing this we should in fact be more diligent in preparing it by transforming our mind and doing dharma work. No other person, money and material can help us when we die. And we should treasure our time now since we have a perfect physical body and having meeting the dharma. We should use more time to practice dharma and collect more merits.

    I like the Byzantine art style. The very first time I look at the pictures, it looks so classic and unique. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the background of Byzantine art, something I will not purposely go find out since I am not really an art/painting person. May many people be benefited and be blessed with the many Dorje Shugden art styles that Rinpoche have commissioned.

    Tibet has always maintained a unique culture for centuries. Tibet has a history dating back over 2,000 years. Tibet, the remote and mainly Buddhist territory also known as the “roof of the world”, As emanations of the Wisdom Buddha, every incarnation that arose before Dorje Shugden manifested was a fully Enlightened Being. Each incarnation contributed greatly towards the growth of Dharma throughout the Buddhist world. . Buddhism spread into Tibet in the 7th century, with many monasteries all over Tibet. Great updates for all of us be able to be able to view those beautiful pictures . Watching those videos is indeed a blessing for me and all as its not every time we could able to see it and all the beautiful rituals and holy ceremonies in Tibet. On top of watching those ceremonies I am feeling happy as I could see the momentous event of new kuten, or oracle, took trance amongst those attending the ceremony, Amazing looking at the thousand of monks coming together for the prayers as well as initiations. Locals joining in those unique celebrations and receiving initiation and teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and updating us with all the wonderful news .

    Inspiring story of this great man, a writer , revivalist named Anagārika Dharmapāla. He was the first global Sri Lankan Buddhist missionary and a pioneer in the revival of Buddhism in India. He was also one of the founding contributors of non-violent Sinhalese Buddhist nationalism and Buddhism. The saving of Bodhgaya for Buddhists from Hindu fundamentalists is his biggest and most notable contribution by Dharmapala. Bodhgaya is the place where Buddha attained enlightenment. It was Dharmapala that he restored stupas there. If not for Dharmapala, Bodhgaya today would have become a place of Hindu worship , Thousands of pilgrims and tourist from all over the world visits Bodhgaya today, which is one of the most sacred places for Buddhists’s world. He has dedicated his whole life to national and religious causes. He has left inspiration for many generation till today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for sharing this inspiring article .

    We live in a world where the insult and criticize has become the weapon of choice. We cannot control how others criticize us. Its seem to be quite common in today society and we cannot please everyone. Whatever one do or speaks or comment there are sure to be some who do not agree with it. Due to the ban on Dorje Shugden many families are torn apart . Dorje Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries and re-established new monasteries. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden causing sufferings among many. Dorje Shugden practitioners continue to be harassed, smeared on social media, and so forth. My Guru and few Kecharians are one of those been attacked daily. The false accusations to Shugden practitioners and to pressure Dorje Shugden practitioners to break their samaya with their Guru should not have happened. The ban of Dorje Shugden is therefore unnecessary and illogical. I hope more will speak out about this issue, the more is spoken out, the more others will be aware of the issue. May the ban be lifted soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this post.

    Ancient civilisation had something very peculiar that is lost today, which is the elongated skull. Modern science today sometimes dismisses the phenomenon of elongated skulls that appeared across many civilisations as cranial deformation. But are they? This video presented many sound reasons that the elongated skulls are in fact alien beings who came to earth, imparted humans with knowledge and possibly stayed and made a family here. For sure, humans are not the only civilization in this whole universe, because it does not make sense that only planet earth can provide for living beings, and nowhere else. At some point in time, alien beings who are more advanced could have landed and left some behind. It is therefore not abstract to believe that part of our ancestry and the way we live today are heritage of alien civilization.

    Our ancestors definitely had better intelligence and wisdom than we give them credit for. They are not as “primitive” as we had defined them, even by our standards. This video is evidence that ancient technology is capable of advance flying mechanics, building technology as well as food science. Unfortunately, history did not have these chapters captured clearly, resulting in a lack of compelling proof that it was the result of human engineering. It could therefore be knowledge imparted by foreign intelligence beings.

    Because people centuries or decades ago cannot fathom the intelligence of these ancient creations, they conveniently labelled them something else, for example the flying machine had been categorised as bird, the fighter jet as bugs, so on. Legends and myths could therefore be based on something real too, the battles in the sky with fire spilling weapons could be a reality in the distanced past. How interesting! It would be truly amazing to see a modern version of the magic carpet!

    By the way, it’s quite noticeable that the modern gliders possess wings much longer that the ancient flying machine. Did I miss the answer? lol

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching and reminder. We always think we have so much time and concentrate so much in making our body look good and using it to generate wealth which in the end didn’t bring us anything happiness that can last long. We should in fact use our temporary body to work on bringing benefit on others and to generate more merits that can help ourselves and others. Hence we should do more dharma and not waste our time on unnecessary things that will attract us into more worldly actions.

    The title ‘Great Scholar’ of India is truly appropriate for Professor Lokesh Chandra. His collection of work is marvellous and very beneficial to any student of Buddhism or spiritual aspirant! From his work, it is evident that Professor Lakesh has deep expertise in language with unequivocal understanding of the Buddhist text as well as superior knowledge of Buddhist iconography. I am at awe! I certainly look forward to reading some of Professor’s work. Thank you for this wonderful sharing, Rinpoche, Joy.

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.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. 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. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website. You can read it here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149806

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.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    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.
    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)
