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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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....

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 highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her.

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche
