Dear People of the world,

Please, Please, Please help me get this all over social media and the world. Please take a few minutes out to help. It cost you nothing but you will save beings from suffering and in the end our planet.

Help me to make this go viral. It is horrible. I wish to contact this Japanese man crying and see what else we can do. Please share this all over the place as much as possible to get awareness out to the masses. I want to translate this into Japanese also. I am sure Mark is right when he says most of the Japanese public are ignorant of what is happening. They would be just as shocked and outraged as we are if they knew.

All my information and pictures were extracted from the compassionate facebook pages of : https://www.facebook.com/davidrisley and https://www.facebook.com/mark.dobkin.7 I thank these wonderful human beings for speaking up against all this unnecessary pain. I thank them for using social media for a higher purpose than just make-up, food, entertainment, relationships, weight and self centric feelings. It is wonderful to find social media pages that make a difference in our world. That contribute to the betterment of all beings and environments on this planet. Our social media pages reflect who we are and what we are. I salute and thank these people. I will do my best to contact this Japanese man to start something. What I don’t know, but something I hope.

This is a normal and appropriate response when hearing the cries and screams of the dolphins as they are murdered in front of their families.

How numbed out much of the western world has become.  Send this image to your congress person.  This could have been the response from all of the murder that goes on in this country, the escalated teen-age suicide, the oceans dying and hundreds of species a month going extinct on this planet.

Where women in many parts of this country and the world are still objectified and treated like dogs.

Where almost all of our lakes and streams are polluted and people have such little trust of the government and of other people to care for them when things go badly in their lives.

Please let this all touch your heart and let it all break it open so this never happens again.

This is not about being negative, this is about calling a spade a spade and creating a burning desire to stop this nonsense once and for all.

No more violence and disrespect of any sentient being.


Please boycott and protest all Sea Life Parks that create so much suffering for these marine mammals.  Without the demand for dolphins being used for entertainment this just might stop sooner than later.

Sea World attendance has dropped and there is a very strong correlation between the movie “Blackfish” and the lowering of attendance.

Watch the trailer:   

 

Or view the video on the server at:
http://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/blackfish.flv

Watch the trailer and although “Blackfish” reveals the injustices and torture around Orcas, dolphins are in the same situation forced into tiny swimming areas and enduring like trauma, if not even more trauma as they see their family being murdered next to them in places like Taji Cove in Japan (and there are other places that murder dolphins too)

Isn’t it time to say no more to all the violence, murder, and lack of care?   This is the 21st century and we are at the brink of breaking the old conditioned patterns of nonsense that have been in our culture for hundreds of years.

Please do your part, you count and leave this life when it’s your time knowing that you gave all to something good that benefits all.

Thank you.

With love,  Mark 


A monumental thing happened in the Taiji cove yesterday, the first day of the 2013-14 dolphin hunting season. Even though the Taiji fishermen managed to capture a pod of about 60 bottlenose dolphins (still awaiting their fate), the Taiji cove was overtaken by Japanese protesters – a first in the history of the cove. While there is worldwide protest, many believe that if there is to be a change, it will come from within Japan and the Japanese people. Most make the mistake of blaming all of Japan for this travesty, when in truth, many Japanese people are unaware this is happening and those who do, find it as repulsive as you or I. Seeing this crack in the foundation was a remarkable sight. This gentleman actually went under the water and heard the cries of the captured dolphins and began to weep when he surfaced – it was both touching and surreal.



   

Never harm, eat or abuse animals. They don’t deserve pain.


Powerful Japanese activist response to dolphin drive in Taiji

Or view the video on the server at:

Taiji – It was both a tragic and inspirational start to the dolphin drive season in Taiji, Japan. As a pod of between 40-60 bottlenose dolphins were pushed into the cove, Japanese activists made history of their own.

There was no grace period for dolphins this year. Despite the presence of Japanese media, activists and a contingent from Dolphin Project.org, Taiji fishermen drove between 40-60 bottlenose dolphins into the cove on the very first day of the season.

As the pod of dolphins churned the waters in panic, a rather bizarre scene unfolded on the beach ahead of them. Members of a right-wing Japanese activist group, set up umbrellas, played Hawaiian Luau music and planned a whale barbecue.

Across the beach from them, separated by a large contingent of police, Brazilian activists wandered down toward the beach and merged with Japanese activists.

Collectively, they stood alongside Ric and Lincoln O’Barry from the Dolphin Project, and special guest, Matt Sorum, former singer and drummer with Guns N Roses.

As the war of words between megaphones began, the pro-dolphin entourage was warned by police not to shout. So Sorum did what he does best, and began to drum quietly. He then took to the guitar to lead the group in a rendition of “Give peace a chance,” followed by a haunting version of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s door.”

The entire scene, which unfolded live on the Dolphin Project’s U-Stream channel, was beamed around the globe by Ric O’Barry’s son, Lincoln O’Barry. The O’Barry’s were there on the opening day of the dolphin drive season, as they are every year, to raise awareness for the dolphins.

At the beach with them, were volunteer Cove Monitors and international supporters from six continents. Around the world, more than 100 individually simultaneous events spread the word of Taiji’s dolphin drives as part of Japan Dolphins Day 2013.

Taiji’s dolphin drive season

The small coastal whaling village of Taiji is located in the Wakayama Prefecture of Japan. Every year between Sept. 1 and March 31, dolphins across several species are driven into a tiny cove by fishermen and either slaughtered for their meat or sold (at great profit), to the captive marine industry. Last year, 1,486 dolphins were driven into the cove. This year’s quota, is 2,013 animals.

An old Japanese proverb says, ‘the nail that sticks out gets hammered down,’ so aside from small groups such as Elsa Nature Conservancy, for many years, the pressure to stop the dolphin slaughter consistently came from outside of Japan. It is only within the last few years that activists of Japanese descent, have begun to step forward. Fearing reprisal, the steps were hesitant at first. Izumi Ishii, a former dolphin hunter turned pro-dolphin advocate, was one of the first to take the plunge.

The leap cost Ishii-san and his family dearly. But he stood tall, and spoke out against dolphin hunting at the 2002 International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) annual meeting. Here, under public scrutiny, he announced his intention to cease hunting and urged his fellow dolphin hunters to do the same. Today, Ishii-san and his family, run a dolphin and whale watching business.

Further massive change occurred this year, when Japanese activists chose to air their disagreement with the Japanese government. Having cracked the doors in previous years, they now threw them wide open, shedding light on their country’s whaling policies.

History in the making

In Tokyo, last Friday, grassroots Japanese organization, Flippers Japan, held a Flash Mob Action at the busy Shibuya Crossing, and invited Ric O’Barry and Matt Sorum to take part.

Together with Ishii-san, they recreated the powerful ending of the movie, The Cove. In the scene, O’Barry stands silent in the Shibuya crossing; a body screen shows video of the dolphin hunts as hundreds of Japanese people walk by.

Also making their presence felt were members of the Japanese group: Action for Marine Mammals. They hosted a lively protest march at Shibuya for Japan Dolphins Day 2013.

But the most poignant and heartfelt moment occurred on the beach of Taiji’s cove. As newly-captured bottlenose dolphins frantically slapped the waters with their tails, Japanese activists donned their swimsuits and swam out towards the nets where the dolphins were being held.

 

Challenging the patrolling Japanese Coast Guard, Satoshi Komiyama and his fellow activists stood calmly by the nets and delivered their message. Translated by Yuka Azuma, Komiyama’s sign read:

We are not shaming Fishermen. We think we need to change the policy of our country. It is not the time any more to hunt dolphins and eat them. We are now facing the time of era when we as nation must contemplate on the way of the dolphin hunting.

As Komiyama returned to shore, he broke down in tears. Having dipped his head in the waters, like Ishii-san before him, he had heard the dolphins cry. 

 

Arms waited to greet and comfort the young Tokyo activist. He was assisted from the water by Ric O’Barry. On the beach was Melissa Thompson Esaia who captured the event on video. This was her second year in Taiji for September 1st, and she described the experience as being, “even more emotional and surreal,” than last year.

The video (top) appears courtesy of Esaia; the original can be viewed here on Vimeo.

For the bottlenose dolphins held in the cove overnight, 18 young and attractive animals were selected to be sold to the captive marine mammal industry. The remaining dolphins, minus their young, were released back to the ocean.

In a discussion between the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria or WAZA, (sister organization to the American AZA) and the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA), bottlenose dolphins driven into the cove during September are for captive selection only. This ‘grace period’ is not afforded to other dolphin species and by October, even bottlenose will be slaughtered.

It will be a daunting six months for dolphins running the gauntlet off the coast of Taiji, but with Japanese activists now embracing their cause, there is also great hope.

なぜ、彼は泣いているのか?

世界中の皆さんへ

どうか、この事実をソーシャルメディアで世界中に広がってください。一切負担もせず、ほんの少し時間でに被害を受けている動物を初め地球を救うことができる。

この恐ろしい問題をみんなさんにお伝えてください。私は、この泣いている日本人男性とコンタクトを取り、私たちは他に何かできるのを一緒に考えていきたいです。この問題を多くの人々に知らせるために、できる限り多くの場所で共有してください。本文を日本語に訳して。マークが言うように、恐らく多くの日本人は現状何を起きているかを実際に把握していません。もし事実を分かったら、私たちのようにショックを受け、怒り出すでしょう。

ここに掲載している情報と画像は、以下のFacebookページより抜粋しています: https://www.facebook.com/davidrisleyhttps://www.facebook.com/mark.dobkin.7 こんな苦痛を受けるべきではないことを抗議している、人情性を持ち、素晴らしい方々に感謝を申し上げます。彼らは、メーク、食、エンターテインメント、人間関係、個人の感情などの目的ではなく、もっと大きな目で、ソーシャルメディアを利用して世の中に変えることを感謝しています。

なぜなら、この地球に生きている生物と環境向上に貢献しているのです。ソーシャルメディアを通して、我々自身は誰であるか、またなにであるかを反映しています。私は彼らに敬意を表し。

全力を尽くし、この日本人男性とコンタクトをとりたいと思っています。何かできるかをわかりませんが、自分の望むことを願っています。

当然ですが、自分の家族の前で殺される時、イルカも叫び、泣くです。

この画像をぜひ日本の国会議員にも送ってください。それは、この国に殺害、若者の自殺、毎月数百種の生物が絶滅しつつ、多くの海洋生物の死に対して反響になるでしょう。

この国や世界の多くの場所では、未だに女性を犬のように扱われています。

また、ほぼ全ての湖や川が汚染され、生活が悪化し、人々は政府や他人を信頼できなくなってきています。

このようなことが起こしつづないように、どうかこの問題に目を向いてください。

ネガティブにする目的ではありませんが、このような無意味なことを終わらせるために、事実を述べているだけです。

どんだけ小さい生き物でも 暴力や軽蔑をしないこと。


一刻も早く、苦しめている海洋生物のため水族館をボイコット、抗議しましょう。イルカをエンターテインメントとして需要がなければ、こういう施設も自然にはなくなります。

シーワールドの動員数が減ったことには、映画「ブラックフィッシュ」が強く関係しています。

トレーラーをご覧ください。

「ブラックフィッシュ」では、シャチを取り巻く不当な扱いや苦痛を取り上げていますが、イルカもまた同じような状況で、小さなプールで泳ぎ、トラウマに耐えているのです。そうじゃなくでも、イルカたちは、日本の太地湾のような場所(イルカを殺しているところは他にもたくさんあります。)で、家族が殺されるのを目に当たりし、より強いトラウマを抱えているです。

今こそ、暴力や殺害、無配慮なことを増やさないように訴えるべきではないでしょうか? 現在21世紀、我々は何百年も続きたくない文化を破壊に直面しています。

自分たちができることをしましょう。みんなのためになると思うことを、できるうちにやりましょう。

ありがとうございます。

愛情を込めて マーク


2013年のイルカ漁シーズン初日の昨日、太地湾で注目すべき出来事が起こりました。太地湾の漁師たちは網に約60頭のバンドウイルカを捕獲しましたが、湾の歴史上初めて、日本人の抗議者によって太地湾のイルカ漁を阻止されました。世界中から抗議の声が上がる一方で、多くの人は、変化があれば、日本国内や日本人の中から抗議者が出てくるということを信じています。多くの人は、イルカの殺傷についてすべての日本人を責めていますが、それは間違いです、実は、多くの日本人はこのような出来事について何も知らずです。この事実を知っている人々は、あなたか私みたいに憤りを感じているです。こうした抗議の声を日本人の中から上がっているのは、注目すべきです。この男性は実際に海に入ってイルカの叫び声を聞き、泣きだしたのです。心に響く現実とは思えないような光景でした。



   

動物を傷つけたり、食べたり、虐待したりするのはやめましょう。彼らが苦痛を受ける必要はないです。

  1. Lin Mun on Dec 24, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this article and I totally agree that we should stop the killing and support the effort to create more awareness.

    It is heart wrenching to read this article and to know why people can be so gruesome towards living beings. Dolphin are such a kind animal and human being will do anything to hurt them just because of money.

    The animals also have the right and freedom to live but we always use them for our own benefit be it for entertainment or profit making.

  2. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 14, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    Some people will just go all the way to fight for the animal rights, not every Japanese consumes whales/dolphins meat, not every Chinese man slaughters and eats dog meat. These countries are very fortunate to have these protestants, because without these people, the country will collect eve more bad karma, although the protests do not work every time but if they keep on doing what they are doing, it will work someday.

  3. Ck siah on Oct 13, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    日本的捕鱼业在全球算是数一数二的,他们的捕鱼业是施用最先进的仪器到各地海洋捕杀各种海洋动物。 而且他们也是受政府的鼓励,所以也不顾其他国际保护海洋团体的抨击。每年滥杀数百万的海洋动物。所以上两年的大海啸灾难事故也显示是因为得天谴,因果报应。让数万名的老百姓遭殃。这是令人很心痛又难受。在佛法里,众生都是一视同仁,不可有滥杀无辜之罪,否则都会受到轮回因果。谢谢仁波切分享这感动的报导。

  4. Lucas Roth on Oct 8, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    i wish everyone would feel this way when and animal dies and i wish people would care for them, some people are so selfish to eat or kill animals. they have lives too. these people are doing the right thing, caring.

  5. Choongs on Oct 1, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Everytime i come to this page, I cry too. I’m gonna make a dedication in Menlha puja tonight.

  6. Junior on Sep 26, 2013 at 11:57 am

    This man is truly very kind.
    Thank you very much for the video.

  7. Cliff on Sep 15, 2013 at 1:27 am

    That man is amazing, you can tell by his sincerity and heartfelt willingness to be there to protest for the hunting of bottlenose dolphins. Its disgusting wanting to kill an animal for the ‘game’ of hunting them, its sadistic right in the core of the mind. This kind of behaviour is really not healthy for the mind of their own and for their children. I hope they would be able to put a stop to this and I too find this extremely repulsive. I hope more people would be aware of this and if there was a petition for this I would gladly join. If I visit Japan one day in that area, I would gladly partake in the protest. Thank you for sharing this article Rinpoche and bringing it to my awareness.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Sep 12, 2013 at 11:43 am

    Dolphins are said to be one of the world’s most intelligent animals. It seems that the dolphin’s brain has the same layers of that which the human brain has i.e. six but 50% more coxtex cells than the human brain. In fact, dolphins are more like human beings, so how can we allow such killings of another specie of being similar to humans. There are international reports on and off, that dolphins have resorted to saving human lives too in shipwreck episodes! Soooo, is this the reward and appreciation we humans show, by killing them!!!! If not, then please, please help our Rinpoche to get this message over to all social media around the World quickly!

  9. jerry sito on Sep 9, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    当它们生命被迫结束的那一刹那 那一份痛 那一份哀伤 那一声哀嚎 这一切一切的特征 , 难道不是跟身为人类一样吗 ? 当他们的生命被迫结束的时候,它们就进入了轮回里,同样的当我们去世的时候,有谁想过,下一世也许我们就是它们(只一个角色的对调而已) 请停止再制造不好的因果了。

  10. Shelly tai on Sep 9, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing this’s blog post. Those day before I become a Buddhist I do enjoy going to see animal performance especially deep sea ocean animals after knowing dharma I think we should not take advantage of these animal because every living being deserve to be happy and live freely not being captivated.

  11. So Kin Hoe on Sep 6, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    This gentleman has brought a great wave of his message to everyone around the world. Thank you Rinpoche to make this viral on the blog and save more animals from being killed.

  12. sabine slusarek on Sep 6, 2013 at 5:19 am

    stopp it!!!

  13. Joy on Sep 6, 2013 at 2:34 am

    Why would people want to harm and hurt these amazing magnificent creatures and another living being I have no idea! This is one industry we have got to try our best to put a STOP and SHUT them down. It is just inhumane to do this.

    I will create consistently create a huge awareness on this issue to that the whole world sees and supports it!

  14. HelenaC on Sep 5, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    I cant stand watching this beautiful lives being slaughter, it is extremely heart breaking!! Especially I love dolphin alot!! it is so cruel and inhuman!! I have watched several times on Youtube and read about the news from THE COVE about the Taiji and Denmark dolphins and whales slaughter, I cant hold my tears beside crying with anger!! It is very shocking that the Japanese does not aware of this Dolphin hunting season in Japan!! We must spread the awareness to the world and this act has to be stop immediately.
    I thank Rinpoche for posting this news. may all the suffering to be stop!

  15. Wylfred on Sep 4, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    在克切拉学习一段时间后, 总会有新的体会。 现在我一个星期里面都会3-4天不吃肉。 希望我未来可以成为一位全素食者, 下次和人分享不伤害动物的时候更有说服力

  16. Sean Wang on Sep 4, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I think that animals do not deserve captivity and I absolutely respect what the people here do for the orcas. I hope that this news spread like wildfire and more animals are liberated from their “Bathtubs”. Orcas are not the only victims here though, as mentioned previously on this blog, circus animals are also mistreated due to their captivity. I wll share this with friends.

  17. Albert Ratchaga on Sep 4, 2013 at 11:09 am

    It is indeed very sad to see situation like this happening, and it’s not only in Japan, animals in all around the world are being treated as a toy and not a life being, they being tortured when not behaving like how human wanted them to, being put into heel like of living condition. The animals are living everyday of their life in darkness, fear, malnutrition, sick, hunger, etc, etc.. It is every situation that we can’t even think of.

    It is very rare for people to stand out for the protest of rescuing animals, at this period of time, people do not torture animals already not easy, more over for people who take action to stop animal abuse.

    As a Chinese saying: Human’s heart is made by flesh. It means it is warm and soft, not hard and cold. I believe if we create enough awareness for stopping animal abuse, more and more people will realize and join in for this protest. We just have to be the first person to start doing it first. Social Media is a very good platform, utilize it for a good purpose instead of posting the things that wil end up meaningless.

    This man is truly very kind, I really envy his courage to get into the water to protest for the mammals, our world needs more men like him, people who care about the animals and would willing to do anything to save their lives. People should stop hurting ocean mammals already, they are born in the sea, they belong in the sea.

  22. Andrew Boon on Sep 3, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    I went through the series of videos after the one posted here and it is sad to know that these magnificent creatures are kept in captivity for so long and away from their natural habitat. The trauma from being taken so young from their family and kept under such duress…

    Imagine being stuck in a confined room whereby you are only able to just walk around in circles for years!!!… I would go mad too. And we are supposedly the more evolved species… sigh!

  23. Elsie Toy on Sep 3, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche Thank you very much for the video. Before I was a buddhist I always think that it is all ok for these animals to be in the slaughter and to perform at waterworld because I used to think that human are helping them to by constantly feeding them. I guess I didnt have the compassion and wisdom at that time. but now I understand that what is freedom and respect after learning the teachings and where the seed of compassion arises inside me to understand that doing all these actually harms and creates pain and sufferings for these beings. I agree I was ignorant then. I will pray that these people who harms these beings gain that wisdom and may they find better jobs in vegetable farms and a switch in career may they meet the buddhist teachings may they seed of compassion arises. I will share this with all my friends. Om Mani Padme Hung. May all suffering cease may all beings find happiness may all live in harmony. Thank you very much my dear Guru.

  24. Wah Ying on Sep 3, 2013 at 11:03 am

    A society is not a civilized society when we still mistreat the animals that cannot express or protest, either as our food or entertainment.

    You might first think the crying man is an extremist, but when you confine a big size whale/dolphin (killer whale is from dolphin family) in a small space and keep it for entertainment years after years, or hunting whale as your “old and impenetrable tradition; and “no one has the right to criticize the food culture of another people …” then it’s hard to defense yourself an open/civilized society. This is not only apply to Japan society but to Spain bullfighting culture and etc.

  25. Vinnie Tan on Sep 3, 2013 at 4:27 am

    It is just sad that there are many ceremonies like this all over the world. There are also similar cases that happen around Denmark. It is just sad that many are not aware of what is going on, I believe that if people are aware of what is happening, they would definitely help to keep these poor little babies safe.

  26. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Sep 3, 2013 at 3:55 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, the young guy is so kind and have a strong heart to try save these animals.

    One can not but many can, may he always bless by 3 jewels hence more and more peoples will join him to achive his Goal…

  27. May Ong on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    If animals have been confined in small space for a long time, they will be subjected to abnormal psychological behaviours, because they can feel, and the Japanese man at the Taiji Cove was clearly distraught over the killings of the dolphins for he can feel their pain and heard their cries.

    With the same plea as the Japanese man, please let us not continue to harm.

  28. Su Ming on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    We can get the pic with the banner to a Jap school in KL to translate. From there, we will know which organisation this man is attached to, I hope. Then from there, we can proceed in helping this man and the cause he holds so dearly.

    I will check out the japanese language schools in Mont Kiara area.

    Thank u
    Su Ming

  29. Carmen Lin on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    On the other note, I think that people are ignorant towards this matter due to power and greed, it is saddening to know that cruelty seemed to be the only way to secure the financial status of a family or a nation. Japan is a very advanced country and may the fishermen be able to have the good karma to have a different career that would do no harms to animals and human beings. May the animals able to rest in peace and have a good and swift rebirth.

  30. Edern on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Thisan is awesome he thought of how the animals are suffering. And wanted to change it. If every one think of this way, wouldn’t this sufferung all end?? They are also cruelty towards animals in china. Hope people like him are also located in china to change the world for our future generations.

  31. Julien Roth on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    I really respect this man. He is trying to make a difference for the life of these sea animals. I admire the effort that he is putting into what he is doing. I too hope that this goes viral and that many people are informed about the truth behind animal entertainment.

    According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

    Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

    Discover your traits according to the Mewa, or Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology below, and find out how to purify your negative karma to improve your life!

    Very interesting:


    Radin explained in his book: “For a Western-trained academic, the mere existence of, say, telepathy would be considered supernormal and thus wildly extraordinary. But for an experienced yogi, it’s just a boringly normal minor siddhi [a Sanskrit term for a meditation attainment, or power]. A skeptical scientist, not having the benefit of thousands of hours of practice in yoga and meditation, would require repeatable, rigorously obtained experimental data showing odds against chance of a gazillion to one. The yogi merely requires his own experience.”

    This Mahasiddha is Kukkuripa (the dog lover). He loved dogs so much. When he meditated in the cave he had his doggie with him. She had kept him company for years in his cave. They shared bedding, food, water and company. When he gained high attainments, the Dakinis came to take him to Kechara Paradise. He was hesitant to go but the Dakinis insisted and he went with them.

    He arrived at Kechara (Paradise/Buddha abode of Heruka and Vajra Yogini) and enjoyed teachings and feasts up there and they asked him to stay longer if not forever…. But he kept thinking about his doggie left alone in the cave. He felt guilty and missed her. Kukkuripa would use his psychic powers to see his poor doggie alone and hungry waiting for him at the cave while enjoying the attention of the Dakinis and feasts. The cave was dark and had no food. The doggie had to go out and find small tiny scraps of food and was getting skinny. Kukkuripa saw this and it pained him. Worried she was not getting enough food. He use to share the offerings of food he would get from people with her. Doggie and him would delightfully eat the food together. Kukkuripa had no attachments to ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ in regards to sharing food with his dog. He had overcome this in his meditations. In ancient India, people would not co-habitate with a dog. It was considered unclean and filthy, but Kukkuripa had cast away those notions and loved his dog as she loved him. But he felt guilty to leave her alone while he was ‘enjoying’ himself in Kechara and could not stop thinking about his beloved dirty smelly dog in his cave alone…so he left Kechara Paradise and all it’s ‘delights’ for his doggie. He couldn’t abandon her. The Dakinis implored him to stay, but he was firm to return. The Dakinis said you will give up this paradise here for a mere dog???!! You can advance further in your meditations if you stay in Kechara and then help the dog later they attempted to persuade him. But Kukkuripa would not stay, he was loyal to his little dog as she had kept him company for many years in the lonely dark cave. She was loyal to him and how can he abandon her now. He couldn’t and he wouldn’t listen to the Dakinis. He left to join doggie. He never forget her companionship and loyalty. All the wonderful things in Kechara could not tempt him against his loyal friend the little doggie. He left everything for her.

    So he finally left Kechara to the Dakinis dismay and went back to his cave to be with his dog so she won’t be alone. Doggie was delighted to see her master and wagged her tail so much!! She licked him and he hugged her! She was skinnier for not eating well these few days he noticed. He fed her and hugged her and loved his doggie…He went back to his routine of meditation, receiving food offerings and sharing his food with doggie. They were happy together. One day, when he was scratching her in her favorite place and she licked him so his eyes were closed, when he opened his eyes she had suddenly turned into a Dakini shimmering with lights! The brilliance of the lights lit up the whole cave in front of Kukkuripa!! Kukkuripa was astonished to behold the splendourous lady in front of him! Of course this Dakini must be the Queen Herself he realized, as Vajra Yogini which was Kukkuripa’s main Yidam he had meditated on her for years in the cave. And She said to Kukkuripa, “Well done, you gave up paradise to be with just a dog..it shows you have given up attachements and projections of pleasant and unpleasant, now your Dakini will give you the final paradise (enlightenment)!”

    Kukkuripa attained full enlightenment blessed by Vajra Yogini by releasing the final subtle attachment to the non-existent self! After enlightenment his fame and name grew and many came to see him and he gave teachings to countless and benefitted many before he finally ascended to Kechara the second and final time. He was forever known as Kukkuripa the dog lover.

    I love him so much!!! This is one of my favorite Mahasiddhas along with Badrapa, Shantideva, Ghantapa and a few others. I wanted to share this story with you. I wanted you to know that there are many great true stories like this one about Kukkuripa that are true and can be applied to our lives. To inspire us.

    The great and illustrious master Sonam Tsemo at the end of his life was described by an old woman who witnessed Sonam Tsemo depart. Standing on a rock at the holy spring near Sakya area known as Chumik Dzingka, his body ascended gracefully into the sky, still holding his dog. He loved his dog very much. Even today the footprints of Loppon Sonam Tsemo and the dog can be clearly seen in the rock, left for the benefit of living beings as a field from which to accumulate merit. It is a sign of a holy being when they can leave their footprints in stone for future generations to witness and make offerings on that spot to collect merits. This holy site was decorated by the great master Mantradhara Ngawang Kunga Rinchen later on. Other accounts say that he ascended from Gorum Library near Chumik Dzingka spring. A stupa containing his holy relics was erected there. Sonam Tsemo was a powerful practitioner of the Lady Buddha Vajra Yogini and at the end of his short life he ascended with his very body to Kechara paradise. He was 40 years old. Kechara is the sanksrit name of the special abode of Vajra Yogini. Those who practice Vajra Yogini to the highest level can ascend her paradise with their very bodies. Sonam Tsemo the great master of sutra and tantra was seen by an old woman flying off holding his beloved dog to ascend Kechara paradise. No one every found his body and his room was empty.

    Congratulations to Mitra for his first dharma teaching in Nepali to the expats. So glad that Dorje Shugden practise can reach out to many in various languages and to different people. Mitra has done a good job in introducing Lama Tsongkhapa lineage and guided them on the benefit and iconography of Dorje Shugden.

    May Lama Tsongkhapa lineage and Dorje Shugden practise continue to grow and benefit more people.

Each time when i have a look at the beautiful statue of Vajrayogini this question will comes back to me. i am glad came across these blog by chance, i saw and read to understand better.A clear explanation ..stampling left and right foot significant of desire ,hatred and ignorance that cause us to be in samsara and she she able to control.Vajrayogni’s practices is so powerful in heliping us and that is the reason Rinpoche always ask us to start now.

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    Superb idea and very creative. Home farming in the cities ! Appreciate all the hardwork and ideas to produce Growroom. It’s just like putting a big puzzle and making the whole process so much easier to plant in cities where we always have limited spaces.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

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.

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

    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

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your question, it is good to see you back and asking more questions. Yes you are right, there are differences in the tunes and chants between the lineages. The differences can vary significantly between the traditions, for example the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism is known for its extremely deep throat singing which is very powerful and is characterised by a low, booming voice, in contrast to the other traditions. Even within a particular tradition, there can be slight variations as to the manner in which the chants and tunes are performed. For example those monasteries are which are affiliated with Gyume will have one way of throat singing, where those affiliated with Gyuto will have another. As far as I am aware there is no professional sheet music for the rituals, most probably because the music is actually an integral part of the ritual itself. Therefore the music, tunes, and chants are all taught at the same time the ritual and prayers are. The tunes, and use of the instruments all have specific meanings, because they are considered to be offerings to the deities in the form of sound. The monasteries would not have copies of sheet music either, because sheet music is western practice. The use of ritual music within Tibetan Buddhism is more of one based on memory. In the Kechara organisation, the puja team was trained in such ritual instruments at the same time they learnt the particular ritual from monks from the monastery, such as the puja of Dorje Shugden. From what I saw of the training, the musical tunes, and use of instruments was not written down but taught experientially at the same time as the chanting. I have not come across any other instruments being used in pujas apart from the traditional ritual instruments, because even the instruments themselves have a specific meaning. That is not say that school instruments cannot be used. This is because, as long as the offering is sincere, the Buddhas and enlightened deities will accept it, and in turn you will generate great amounts of merit. Offerings should be made to the best of our ability, therefore if you do not have access to the ritual instruments, or do not know how to play them, but you know how to play other instruments, and use these instruments as offerings to the Buddhas during pujas, the amount of merit you generate will be the same. This is because you are sincere with your offering. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
