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.

  20. 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.

  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.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing about 10 holy sites of China having the Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relic.

    From this post, 2 places stood out to me :
    1. Relics at Tian Tan Big Buddha, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
    2. Relics unearthed below the Leifeng Pagoda

    The 2 places as mentioned above become more famous because of many of the films and televisions’ producers especially from Hong Kong and China like to choose these 2 places as the shooting location. Therefore, the exposure for these 2 places are become more as compared to the others.

    Everyone is encouraged to follow the guidelines from this post to visit these holy places. Through the visit to make offerings and prayers to Buddha’s sacred relics, may everyone be blessed and protected by the Buddha and have the opportunity to plant the karmic seeds to learn and practice dharma in order to achieve the qualities as Buddha.

    随喜Mr Miles Kessler,因为他最终了解到灵修的目标并非追求外在的东西。之前,Mr Miles Kessler 一直以为他利用了这么长时间在合气道(武术之一)包括他自己的训练与教导学生,就是在填埋他的心灵上的那一块。但其实并不是这样。

    后来,当他遇到这位来自缅甸的禅修大师,Sayadaw U Pandita,启发了他并告诉他“当你的心灵上得到安全/保护,你是不需要利用武术来保护自己”。Mr Miles Kessler才了解原来灵修的目标并非追求外在的一切,就比如他喜欢的合气道。他明白如果继续执著于合气道(武术),将会阻止他领悟心灵上更深层次的价值。而这位禅修大师Sayadaw U Pandita,就是在帮助他纠正之前所产生错误的想法。Mr Miles Kessler认为这是一个艰苦的经历。但也因为这样却能改变他对合气道的执著心甚至改变他整个人生的方向。因为他选择放下“自我”也就是他一直引以为荣和认为合气道的重要性,然后选择了拥有2,500 年之久的佛学智慧与真理。

    感谢仁波切分享这篇激励性的博文。我个人非常喜欢这篇博文,希望会有更多人可以从这篇博文里的得到一些启发。

    I have finally set my eyes on the ever alluring Mother Tara on August 27th, this inner feelings of meeting Mother Tara for the first time at Kechara Forest Retreat was something magical hard to describe in words. The feeling is like floating in the midst of a realm where time stood still, her gentle sweet smile, her majestic face radiates a sense of peacefulness that soften and energies every cell in my body. The lush green surrounding, cascading water fountain mingling with birds chirping away, the gentle hill breeze soothes my being and elevates one to a timeless long forgotten era of peace.
    O, Mother Tara I prostrate with folded hands in front of my heart wishing that you would continually bless all at Kechara Forest Retreat and all who have the affinity to meet you and be blessed by your compassionate and loving care.

    People always said dog is the best friend of human beings. It was a heartbreaking story. My eyes getting red after read the letter. How can a person who did hand fed to raised up the doggie but finally become a person who throws doggie intothe dumpster.

    Suffering of animals can’t be voice out by them.Why people keep causing animals in suffering?Social media jobs must be done to create public awareness regarding animal abandon.

    We must respect all sentient beings and create a harmony and peaceful living environment.

    Thanks My Guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for sharing. I will keep sharing on compassion to animals.

    With folded hands

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this story and present it in an interesting comic.

    From this story I have learnt to:

    1) Respect all living beings be it alive or dead. Do not abuse or torture them.

    2) Protector mantra is very powerful and have full trust it the practise. It will clear our obstacles and interference of evil spirits.

    We are so fortunate to be able to learn the practise of Setrap from Rinpoche in Kechara. Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous teaching.

    “Some people want a guru in a feel good factor. Meaning they do prayers, learn a little dharma, volunteer as and when they make themselves free. But the minute the Guru points out to them according to the dharma attitudes that should be transformed to create less problems for themselves and those around them, they run. Or protest not to judge them. Some really join a Guru to learn the dharma and transform. If you see a therapist and only listen to what you should do to improve your situation and never apply it, you’ve wasted your money for the sessions. Similar to this example, mindless surrender to the Guru is not what your after, but surrendering the ego/wrong pride to see a perhaps better way is the point of learning dharma with a Guru. Being open and applying a new way of thinking and acting can surprise you to work much better. That is the purpose of Buddha’s teachings from a Guru.” ~ Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche and Mr. Kessler for sharing this very inspiring event that made Mr. Kessler rethink and reevaluate his life’s destination. His notion that Aikido is spiritual was probably a misconception that was imparted to him wrongfully.
    He was torn between his wants in life and his spiritual yearnings and when Sayadaw Pandita said ‘No’ to him was actually helping him to realize his wrong concept between spirituality and martial arts. It is just like a soft slap on his face pretty much telling him ‘ hey wake up to reality’ Sayadaw saw through his inflated ego and wanted to help him diminish it, in addition Sayadaw could see that Mr.Kessler was carrying unnecessary baggage and was trying to help him offload it. He knew Mr. Kessler has purity in his heart and on that basis accepted him back later on to the meditation center.
    Enlightened gurus, masters, lamas has the abilities to see through pretty much all our faults, strength, weaknesses and characters and therefore would probably let us go through tough assignments to bring up our strengths, running us down to ground levels to deflate our egos. When once these are minimized then perhaps the actual teachings would gradually start and finally help and guide us to realize the true nature of self.

    Animals have feelings just like us. We should respect the animals just as much as everything else because they might be once be our mother in many lifetime ago. If we abuse animal, who knows , maybe we abuse our mother too. Always remind ourselves that nothing deserves to be abused or suffer. We hope others will treat us good and therefore we should treat others how we would like to be treated.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. Hope this post can create more awareness to the people in order to stop hurting the animals but to protect and treat them as human beings.

    Thank you Mr Miles Kessler for the insightful sharing of his spiritual journey. What I found meaningful is Kessler’s realization of the unfound attachment to Akido (it can be anything, e.g. possession, fame, or social status, etc). And when this unfound attachment is being examined under the scope of Dharma; quoting Kessler’s own words “…My future and past were all hanging in the balance in that very moment with an unbearable intensity.” Once we are stripped naked of what we falsely hold on to as a cover to the true us, we will feel exposed and vulnerable. For that reason, we must always be grounded to Dharma as the bearing of our life to and to nurture our mind according to the 3 Baskets.

    The history of mankind is forever tainted because of the cruelty mankind did (and still doing) on those who are harmless and unable to fend for themselves. While the larger population of this planet prefer to remain as silent endorsers of the many tragedies that happened because some humans took advantage of their physically able human form or advantagous position to abuse others. Just try to google, and we will see sexual child abuse, animal abuse, forced extinction of species, crimes against aborigines, “witch hunt” and a list of never-ending list of abuse that we should be very ashamed of. What does this make us? Bullies! Big bullies with no conscious. It is really sad. Please spread love and kindness, and stop any form of abuse, mental or physical.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

    As we are learning about Dorje Shugden and some of us may even benefitted from Dorje Shugden’s practice, it is important for us to study his previous incarnation who made the promise to eventually arise as a Dharmapala for the protection of Lama Tsongkhapa’s middle way teaching and Gaden lineage. Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen was the one who made that promise when he was the main disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. The first incarnation of Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen was Chiwu Gopam who lived during the era of a previous Buddha, Lopa Desi. In his inspirational prayers made to the Buddha, he prayed that he would always be able to practice the Dharma in all his lives; and he would be reborn in barren lands where Buddha’s Dharma can benefit people directly.

    For the six subsequent rebirths of Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, his prayers materialized and he successfully spread Buddha’s Dharma in barbarian lands as the king of those lands. For many lives from thereon, he took rebirth as learned monks and panditas to teach the Dharma. In the incarnation just before Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, he took rebirth in a heaven where he was known as Lhayipu Shiwui Tog, who taught Dharma to the gods. As Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, he devoted himself solely to the work of benefitting sentient beings, spreading and preserving the Dharma. The most famous activity was building Gaden Monastery, which he then offered up to his teacher, Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this educational article. Thank you Pastor David and Pastor Adeline for the dharma sharing sessions.

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.

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

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini\'s practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini's practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

  • Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
