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。

    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.

    • tsemtulku on Sep 2, 2013 at 10:39 pm

      Julien, Since you care about animals, bring this article to more people and create awareness. Tsem R

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

    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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  12. beatrix oo on Sep 4, 2013 at 12:31 am

    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.

  13. PhillisChin on Sep 4, 2013 at 1:55 am

    They are under “Save Japan Dolphins” a NGO directed by Mr. Ric O’Barry ( the man wearing cap in 1st picture) They created a movie name “The Cove” on year 2009.

    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.

  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. 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

    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!

  19. 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!

  22. 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.

  23. 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。

  24. 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!

  25. 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.

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

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

  28. 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.

  29. 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。

  30. 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.

    Never hurt animals. Never kill them. Never eat them. Let them be in peace and have happy lives. They have every right to live and without fear just like us. We should always protect their environments also.

    What is interesting is His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered as the incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, therefore a highly realized and attained being. Whether the Dalai Lama is 10 years old or 70 years old, his mindstream is the same and attained. Attainments cannot go backwards and at any age or any lifetime (incarnation) as he is highly attained. If this is the case when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed the prayer to Dorje Shugden years ago, his mindstream was the same mindstream as now. So how can he make a mistake that back then he saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being and now he doesn’t? I don’t mean disrespect to His Holiness the Dalai Lama with this, but examining the situation only.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the people who recognized my incarnation line as well as the abbot of Gaden Shartse. If I am a fake Tulku, then Dalai Lama is wrong?…….

    I am not a fanatic , I am very open mind , was in a budist group for a few years , but felt betrayed , because I had a lot of faith and afther years pased by , I realized that the group was more like the lamas bussines than a genuine intention to teach dharma , and he also teached some practices that do not exist in the tibetan tradition and presented them as buddist practice , so it is very sad to be lyed and abused money wise by some one that you had a lot of faith and love.

    Any way , I notice that you use the Dalai Lamas Autority to sustain your
    tulku title ( in that sence he ir write ) , but , he has no Autority over budist practice , sugden in this case.

    Today we met an ambassador of a Asian nation in his embassy. We presented Dorje Shugden statue and a printed Dorje Shugden thangka framed for his office. He was very happy with the gifts and thanks us profusely. He wants to meet up with us again after the next few weeks as there are dignitaries visiting and he will be pre-occupied with them. He told us he will place Dorje Shugden’s priceless statue in his office along with the framed picture. He told us he would like Dorje Shugden introduced to more of his countrymen. We will help in that. Nice. Tsem Rinpoche

    When you have something very helpful and excellent in your life that has benefitted you, naturally you want to share with others. Well that is how I feel. During the Lunar New Year’s we go travel the various parts of the city to distribute some love, blessings and protection. See the sample of what we have been distributing in the hundreds. We will continue and do more. Many contact us to sponsor these to be printed and framed and we are grateful for their contributions. Many wish to contribute because they see how it has helped them too. Many thank us for receiving this into their lives and blessed. I really enjoy being beneficial to others.

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.

His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche Losang Choky Gyeltsen predicted that when after Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen entered into clear light, he took rebirth as Kangxi Emperor of China. Kangxi help to build the great Ganden Sumtseling Monastery and the famous Amarbayasgalant Monastery for Zanabazar Rinpoche, the head lama of Mongolia. He was known to be kind and practiced dharma and benevolent to many other religions. Tsem Rinpoche
20 hours ago
Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

Would love to have some really authentic Tibetan food. I have ppl who can cook one or two dishes here, but nothing like the whole authentic spread. Kalmuck food too-it would be nice to have. Kalmuck (Mongol) and Tibetan food have similarities.. For the last 20 years Losar or Tsagan is something I am on my own always. There are no Tibetans or Kalmucks around for hundreds if not thousands of miles. I am always alone. As you know I am half Tibetan and half Kalmuck in heritage.Though the beautiful Chinese people where I am celebrate the Lunar New Year, it's done differently. I am not lonely or 'desperate' for Mongol or Tibetan food/culture, but it would be nice to be around it a little after so long of being on my own. Tsem Rinpoche

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.
