This video below is a trailer of the movie, A tale of Mari and 3 puppies. It is a Japanese film which was released in the year 2007. The movie is based on a true story in the 2004 Chuetsu earthquake.

On October 23, 2004, a dog named Mari gave birth to 3 puppies in a village in Japan. That very evening, an earthquake of 6.9 magnitude struck Japan and shattered the entire village including Mari’s house.

The grandfather of Mari’s family was alone at home that day. He could not get out of the house in time because he suffers from a neurological disorder. The earthquake left him trapped under a wardrobe. Mari courageously tried to save him and even though she could not do so, she did not give up!! She went back and forth making sure her puppies were okay and then went back to the grandfather over and over again!

The grandfather was so touched and inspired by Mari that he was determined to push off the wardrobe and free himself. How moving! Mari’s story was later frequently reported in the media, made into a book and even a movie!! The story serves as an inspiration to many people in Japan.

Along with the trailer below is an English translation… and if you really like the movie, there is a 13-part video below with English subtitles on it!  Please watch this movie…be ready to be touched, moved and inspired. Please make sure young people watch this also….Much care,

Tsem Rinpoche

English translation of the trailer:

When two kids were playing around their neighbourhood, they found a puppy in a box. The little girl had an instant liking for the puppy. When they left, the puppy followed them.

The girl then ran to her grandfather telling him she knows what she wants for her birthday this year. When she brought her grandfather to see the puppy, he told her they can’t take it in as the children’s father does not like dogs. But later, he agreed with the kids to bring it back home.

The grandfather brought the puppy home quietly, hiding it in his jacket. His son felt something amiss and so he questioned his father and unzipped the jacket. To his shock, he saw a hidden puppy. From then on, the puppy became a member of the family. She was given the name, Mari.

After Mari grew up, she gave birth to 3 other puppies. Every day was bliss and they all lived happily. But unexpected things can happen any day.

One fine day, an earthquake erupted, collapsing many buildings including Mari’s house. The grandfather and both grandchildren were trapped in their house. Rescue teams came to know of their disappearance hence troops were sent out to look for them. At the meantime, Mari was trying to rescue the grandfather and grandchildren by digging the soil till her paws were bleeding.

When Mari heard the rescue members, she rushed to them. Feeling something was amiss, the rescue members followed Mari and she led them back to the house where the grandfather and grandchildren were trapped.

When a rescue member was bringing the little girl up to the helicopter, she asked if Mari and the 3 puppies could go along. The rescue member thought for a long time but was rushed by the other members as the grandfather was bleeding a lot. The rescue member then told the girl that his mission is to only save her, her brother and her grandfather.

At the hospital, the grandfather said that luckily Mari saved their lives and he could not believe it. The little girl missed Mari very much and was very worried for her. But her mother told the little girl not to worry as Mari is a mother and that all mothers will protect their children no matter what happens.

The brother told his sister that he is going to look for Mari. The girl said that she wants to go along. No matter how bad the situation was, Mari lived bravely. At last, the father informed his son that the rescue team was going to save Mari and her puppies. This story was an inspiration to all in Japan.

    有如此忠犬应该很满足了,以前老一辈的人都认为狗只是看门的工具,从来都不会特别注意或重视它们.反观现在的人会把狗狗当家人看待.无论如何有玛莉如此狗狗真的很幸福,只是看短片我都已经哭红眼了.看完整套应该....

    This is a very sad and touching true story Mari movie, till I keep repeat to watch it. This Mari really so cute and adorable.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice movie to us.

    Over time we have seen and heard so many accounts of how animals, dogs especially have demonstrated such devotion and loyalty towards human beings. Mari’s story is one of these and very moving because it is based on a true story.

    If we think of Mari not as a dog but as a human being then we see the picture of a very brave, loyal and extremely caring and kind person emerging – one who not only cares for her own children but also went through tremendous pain and effort, risking her own life to save her friends whom she loves as well. This is a very rare quality in people.

    Not only was this person left behind but she also continued to care for her children despite not having enough for herself. We rarely hear of such sacrifices and instead we hear more stories of human beings abandoning their children in orphanages because the children were inconvenient. Mari was selfless and noble.

    Finally we see a person who does not hold grudges and did not become bitter and resentful for being left behind by the rescue team and instead rejoices to be reconciled with her friends and loved ones. What an incredibly loving, selfless, smart and kind being this Mari is. But Mari is a dog and just by being in a different form most people would not recognize her humanity and that is where the pity is.

    Mari like all animals and all beings are no different to us but just in a different form and for that human beings kill them, eat them, tear their skin out, burn and boil them, beat them and cramp them in inhumane cages, take their young away and cause so much sorrow and grief.

    Why do we not do that to people who are less virtuous than animals and yet think nothing about abusing innocent animals who very often are more humane than human beings?

    This is a very good movie not only suitable for kids but it can also put a lot of adults to shame, Aya and Ryota is just a kid, but because of worrying about Mari, they step out from their comfort zone and went into the ‘unknown’ journey,
    1. It is their first time travel so far without the companion of adult
    2. They don’t know what’s going to happen in their journey
    3. They don’t know whether they can arrive to Yamakoshi Village
    4. They know how dangerous of the shook in Yamakoshi Village

    But because of a pure motivation of saving Mari out from the dangerous land, they put all these fear aside and set foot out to the rescue journey, during the journey, they fell, hurt, scared, but they never let all these stop them and still continue.

    Even until they totally unable to continue the journey and was brought back to the shelter, they still didn’t give up…

    Lesson learned:
    In life, we face the situation what Aya and Ryota is facing, we don’t know what is in front waiting, but if we learn from them, put down the fear, step out from our comfort zone, then only solve the problem we face a long the way, because the worries that in our mind, they might not even exist!!!

    Mari
    being left behind where all villagers already evacuated, with
    1. no help
    2. no food supply (have to go round to search for it)
    3. no shelter
    4. life threatened
    5. no way to escape from the dangerous land

    with this situation, many people will lose hope and give up, they might just wait for death, but Mari didn’t, she fought for food, protect the puppies, save food for them even she is hungry (haha, i totally broke down when i saw how she suffers and yet still trying to protect her kids… oops… shameeeee~~~~~), even how hopeless it suppose to be, but Mari did not lose hope and she tried her best to survive through this crisis.

    But what important is, Mari tells us that no matter how difficult we are, how hopeless the situation is, but if we don’t only focus on ourselves, we purely just concern about the benefit of the other party, many things that seems to be hurtful to us will become not important anymore.

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for sharing these moving video. I prayed for the day when humans place just much value on animals’ lives. It’s very heartbreaking to see animals who actually need love and care just like any of us being abused, abandoned, and neglected. My experience as a pet owner showed that dogs in particular (I do not have much experience with other pets) are very faithful to their owner. My pet dog always tried to amused me, treats or no treats. I definitely think of him as a better friend than some people I know.

    Much love

    Valentina

    Animals are our friends and actually we are same with them. Try our best to appreciate them always and then try to use this appreciation towards all the living beings. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful & touching story!

    Extract from an interesting article : “……….. We still speak for God, in more sophisticated ways than all the times before put together. We keep speaking for the gods, for God, for the Buddha – we are speaking so much, so often, that we do not ever hear ourselves. Remarkably, the Buddha knew about this all along. He refused to speak for God. If God does not or cannot speak for Himself, then no one should. The Buddha is a listener, the great listener, who listens to the soft gentle voices of nature, telling us where to look for God and beyond. These voices are all within ourselves, the voice of our heart’s love. We can only hear them when we are happily silent. Hence, the Buddha is also known as the silent sage (muni). We can understand why the Buddha called his saints “listeners” (sāvaka). If we want to follow the Buddha to hear those soft gentle voices of wisdom, we need to stop speaking (and writing), for a while at least, so that we can sit in silence, settling our body and mind in true inner peace. Then, we will hear that silent voice that the Buddha himself heard, that inspired him to give up all the world and its gods, and awaken to everything.”

    When we start to see the light that we really are, the light waking up in us, the radiance, we realize it has no intention to change us. It has no intention to harmonize. It has no agenda. It just happens. The Truth is the only thing we’ll ever run into that has no agenda. Everything else will have an agenda. Everything. Did we ever pull weeds from a lawn, grabbing only their tops, and discover they were back again so quickly that it was as if the lawn was never weeded at all. There is a difference between pulling the weeds of confusion out and getting to the root of Truth. So it’s really important to get to the point of maturity where we are willing to look at what is fundamental.

    You CAN change, you CAN transform, you CAN improve, we can overcome it when we think we can overcome it, because we create the karma to overcome it. It is not magic, it is called karma.

    If we are grounded in the foundational practices and we enter in Heruka and Vajra Yogini practices, we can gain high attainments, or enter in Kechara Paradise with our very bodies at the time of our death and or full enlightenment. This is the path that is most recommended by our lineage gurus.

    I found this illuminating article explaining how much ‘poison’ we actually store in our bodies because we don’t consume the right foods or drinks to cleanse it! If you have never had a detox session before, then it is highly likely that your body contains a lot of ‘poison’ which is bad for your health.

    This article tells you how having these toxins in your body can affect your health. It also offers simple solutions for you to eliminate them from your body.

    Do put in some time and effort to take good care of your body – it is the vehicle that your mind inhabits in this life, and when one has good health, one is able to do more to benefit others.

    When conceptualizing our accommodation at Kechara Forest Retreat, Dukkar Apartments, the idea of using containers came to mind. It was quick to implement, and durable for outdoor use. The idea seemed a bit different for most people to easily accept at that time, but everyone, including our VIP guests, have been very taken aback at how comfortable the space is!

    Benefits of large statues
    1. Plant seeds of liberation in all beings who lay eyes on the statue
    2. It is said that seeing the Buddha even when we are angry helps to purify the mind
    3. Creates waves of merit for those who help to sponsor, create and maintain the statue
    4. Pacify the environment. It is said that the construction of the Leshan Buddha helped to calm a particularly notorious stretch of the Yangtze River known for many drownings and ships capsizing

    This is an important practice I’ve been wanting to have available for a very long time. Many high lamas, my teachers and even the my dharma protector has recommended this practice to me and the general public. This practice is not based on what school of Buddhism as anyone may practice this even if you are not Buddhist.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

This Vajra Yogini is in Rashi Gempil Temple in Howell, New Jersey. My guru Kensur Rinpoche invited this from India and enshrined Her in his house next to the temple. His house was right next to the temple. I use to go and look at Her always extremely fascinated. The statue is there now and here it is. Beautiful. Tsem Rinpoche

I wish to travel the three realms, various planes and six forms of existences.

On our Tsem Rinpoche's http://www.tsemrinpoche.com, a while back an article was posted "DORJE SHUGDEN: MY SIDE OF THE STORY", where Rinpoche shares about his personal journey of Dorje Shugden's practice, history and why he continues his practice even with so much personal attacks for his choice. This blog post has since reached over 100,000 now. This is news to rejoice. Many people have viewed this post and gained further knowledge on Tsem Rinpoche's relationship with Dorje Shugden and in the process learned more about the practice of Dorje Shugden. Tsem Rinpoche on this post speaks with clarity, strength and logic: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

Maghada Sangmo on the top of the roof offering incense and requestiong Buddha to her home. Her relatives making offerings to naked Jain sadhus in her home. (right side). The left side sees Buddha arriving miraculously heralded by his entourage/students of Arhats riding various animal mounts. The Arhats have gained certain supernatural abilities. Buddha descends to the house and is at the door. Receives alms from Maghada Sangmo and gives dharma teachings. As a result, the city has taken refuge from listening to the Buddha and many achieve Arhatship. Due to Sangmo's devotion, faith and trust in Buddha, the Buddha arrives at her home and turns the wheel of dharma and many enter into the dharma because of this. This is a clip from a old thangka. TR

This picture was taken on Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. I was around 19 years old I think. I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist centre under the holy guide of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen whom I love and respect so much. I was lucky to be a young boy in a huge city like Los Angeles and living under the guidance of a great master like him. I feel I have very good karma to find this master and trust him, follow him and live with him when other teenagers were doing such different things in a big city. My interest was always dharma.

This was my tiny small room in Gaden for the first few years. The space next to my rooms are where the cows stayed. I had a huge crack in my wall and I can see the cows and they can see me! My room leaked very badly when it rained with a separate toilet nearby. The toilet barely worked and rarely flushed and had snakes in the toilet or behind the door a few times. The manager of the place told me I can get a better room that does not leak if I raise funds to build more rooms. I was barely getting enough to eat let alone raise funds for buildings. This was back in 1988 till around 1992 I lived in the small room in Gaden Shartse Monastery. I was having such a difficult time finding sponsorship, I could not at that time. But even still I was grateful to be in Gaden and always miss it. This room has since been renovated and fixed up. It has alot of memories for me. Spiritual memories. Tsem Rinpoche

All the food that was proposed to us during the stay was simply delicious and very hearty, hearty too ... But we especially like to highlight the opening dinner held Thursday, October 3, 2013 at the Buddhist restaurant Kechara Oasis Viva Home in Kuala Lumpur. This is one of the best restaurants vegetarian gourmet known to us both in World Veg Fest, a mecca for vegetarians! Kechara specialtiesthe variety and quality of food, the service and comfort. The Kechara aptly named because, for vegetarians, partitioned into a culinary world usually meat, it really acts as an oasis. The menu draws on recipes from China, Tibet, Nepal, Vietnam but also in the West. The setting is relaxing with Tibetan decorative touches, the main dining room can comfortably accommodate up to 210 people, there are 3 VIP private rooms for up to 80 people in a more intimate setting.

No matter who we are, how much we have, how much we don't have, how we live our lives, we end up in one place. Spending our lives just accumulating and having fun is really such a waste of time. No money, power or person or God can ever prevent our destiny just a few years away. We are consigned to the hard cold earth alone or to flames..What happens after this momentous time is up to us right now. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

"Is Dorje Shugden A Demon or Buddha?" https://youtu.be/MJ4KKsU13Vcx http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html Dorje Shugden’s practice has been established for over 350 years yet since 1996, some have labeled this protector a demon instead of an enlightened Buddha, thus causing confusion and fear to arise in the minds of those new to the dharma. In this video, the question of whether Dorje Shugden is a malicious spirit or in fact a fully enlightened Dharma Protector is discussed and addressed with fact and logic. From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Sublime Shugden~ Praise to Dorje Shugden, The hero of samsara and who has overcome all desires, placid in the mind, steady in actions and fully awakened in all deeds. If we surrender our self habits to adopt the actions as recommended by Dorje Shugden and taught by the Sage Buddha, surely happiness and fulfillments await us as well as a garden of siddhis. We should not hold on to the petty and decaying possessions we temporarily hold onto both outer and our bodies, but in exchange trade them in for ultimate bliss. Rely on Dorje Shugden and not one's ego and attachments. Be not in regret when the day of transitioning from this life to another comes. Trust Dorje Shugden in action now and with immediate changes. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

I want to be this Yogi in the picture. I want to be just like him deep within myself exploring the outer universe because I have conquered and mastered my inner universe. Because everything on my inside is explored, purified, cleaned and awakened, I venture out to the thousands of universes and limitless minds to bring them the truth of existence and phenomena. I wish to travel the three realms, various planes and six forms of existences. I wish to share vision of emptiness and bodhicitta which is the view to liberate the countless beings still trapped within themselves and their surroundings. I wish to be of tremendous benefit as I sit by my tree and placid lake. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)
