Dear students and friends,

I would like the share with everyone a great video that I found on reincarnation. In Buddhism, Buddha Shakyamuni taught on the existence of karma and what happens to us after we die in this lifetime… We know that after death, we will be reborn again – into a different state, body and even plane of existence.

There are many people who do not believe in the existence of reincarnation… simply because they cannot remember their past lives and that it hasn’t been proven scientifically yet. But science is limited and cannot prove everything. Reincarnation cannot be disproved also. Also Western culture had a strong predominant belief in reincarnation centuries ago as attested by Pythagoras and Socrates.

What happens if someone tells you that they can remember their past life? That they know of names and places they have never come across before in this lifetime – yet their memories of it are so vivid, so real… and can all be matched up by real events…

Watch these videos about how a few children can remember themselves in their past life… and even lives…PLEASE LISTEN TO MP3 file on Dr. Brian Weiss who is a graduate of Columbia University and Yale. He was very skeptical on reincarnation, but after 25 years of research, he cannot deny reincarnation. I HIGHLY recommend you listen to Dr. Weiss.

    Reincarnation is the continuation of one’s existence of the mind lifetime after lifetime. The deeper meaning of reincarnation ties to the law of Karma and knowing that we are the designer to our own destiny. By knowing that our so-called “destined” shortcoming in this life is actually a result of our wrongdoing in our previous life, we should be motivated and inspired to do the right things now in order for our future to be better. It is very liberating because we are not forever bind to the situation we are in; we can always improve our situation.

    I am one of the people who doesn’t believe in rebirths or reincarnation before I came across Buddhism. After seeing so much evidence such as documentary videos where people recall their previous life, witnessing how miracles of some High Lamas coming back resembling their previous reincarnations plus many more, my opinion in reincarnation changed. Believing in reincarnation has actually made me becoming a better person, doing good for fearing where i will be reborn in my future lives.

  3. Irene Lim on Apr 15, 2017 at 10:20 am

    I have taken for granted reincarnation exist as is taught in Buddhism and have seen and read many high Lamas reincarnated back to this world to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit people. For me it is nothing strange and have accepted it as the norm and part of parcel of life cycle in the universe. However, after watching these videos it further seal my belief that there is life after death and we drift meaninglessly from life to life without any control unlike the high Lamas who have mastered the art of reincarnation to return to benefit the world.

  4. Valentina Suhendra on Apr 1, 2017 at 1:08 am

    Several years ago, I thought of reincarnation as a debatable subject. I believe in it, but I have never thought about it seriously. However, now I believe that the understanding of reincarnation and the fact that future lives exist is key for us to motivate us to behave with morality, care and kindness toward others because we all want to avoid suffering and to be born in a good situation in the future.

    Ultimately, the study of reincarnation would motivate us to develop a distaste toward the unending cycle of births and deaths in samsara and developed a wish for us and others to end this vicious cycle. Buddha’s teachings teaches us to end this cycle by encouraging us to renounce our mundane lives and to work towards enlightenment.

  5. Fong on Mar 29, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    From a mundane point of view, there are compelling evidences as documented in these short documentaries about previous lives. Though all the things that were mentioned by the little boy, Cameron about his previous life in Barra within the Robertson family did not tie up, it was hypothesized that there might have been memories overlapping in this particular case. This again suggest that the mind may go on indefinitely.

    As Buddhists, we believe that the mind goes on and on, from beginningless time. That the little boy can have memories linked to his previous life hint that there may be other memories that we carry with us, that were imprinted in us, whether good or bad. There, we should work towards changing our habits that we do not repeat them out of habit or sub-conscious memories, like the little boy feeling extremely happy upon landing on the island of Barra. But, later when he was at the cottage that was as described while with his present family, he turned morose, remembering unhappy times, perhaps?

    So, whether we believe in karma is another matter but if we want to be happy, we better learn to change our habits to create more happy and kinder memories now.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the very interesting and compelling videos.

    Before this, I really doubt on reincarnation but after I watched the video above, it make me believe on reincarnation stuff which is happen to many high Lama. Reincarnation can’t totally explain by scientists but it reallly exists in this world.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this and it open up my view on reincarnation topic.

    Reincarnation, which is widely believed in many traditions, seems to explain the differences that exist among people. These differences occur as a result of previous lives, good or bad, which bear their fruits in the present one through the action of karma.

    Dr. Weiss was censured by the medical establishment in 1988 after he published “Many Lives, Many Masters.” in which he details his work with a patient he calls Catherine, who under hypnosis, remembered multiple past lives, relieving her of paralyzing phobias. It has sold more than a million copies.

    Dr. Weiss now claims that, “Doctors are e-mailing me. They’re not so concerned with their reputations and careers. We can talk about this openly. And it’s not just psychiatrists, but surgeons and architects.”

    The popular purveyors of reincarnation belief these days are not monks or theologians, but therapists — intermediaries between science and religion who authenticate irrational belief.

    It is great that more and more proponents of reincarnation continue their research into this subject matter, such as Dr. Jim Tucker, who directs the Child and Family Psychiatry Clinic at the University of Virginia, and Ms. Janet Cunningham, President of the International Board for Regression Therapy.

    Reincarnation is one of the most fundamental laws of spiritual existence. The East has mostly accepted this theory as it has been running within our culture for decades through Buddhism and for some, Hinduism.

    I find it quite hilarious how the West thinking it is a huge mystery. As Dr. Brian Weiss has shown, there is proof of reincarnation, hard evidence.

    It is interesting to see how the skeptics slowly change their views of reincarnation upon finding out more and seeing the evidence.

  10. Andrew Boon on Mar 19, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    For me, the thing about reincarnation is such… I do not disbelief its existence… on the contrary I believe very strongly it exist, even from a young age. There were things that were beyond explanation that only a past life could shed some light on.

    Hence for me, the fact of the matter is not whether reincarnation exists… it DOES! It is whether we choose to believe in it wholeheartedly with “karmic repercussions” and all or we choose to ignore it and hence seemingly not accountable to the karmic repercussions. The latter of course is to justify what we know in our hearts is incorrect or not serving us in the long run. Very simple really, for me at least!

  11. VinnieTan on Mar 15, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Reincarnation is just so remarkable. Many people have heard about this not so few of us do know what is going on due to the lack on knowledge on this issue. Also adding on to the fact that there is lack of scientific verification, hence not having many that believes in reincarnation. Hopefully more scientists would believe this and do a detail research to educate all in the world.

  12. Sharon Saw on Feb 18, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    I do believe in reincarnation because of the overwhelming evidence. Perhaps there is not enough scientific evidence but with documentaries like this as well as documented stories of reincarnated masters in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, i am convinced.

    Even the great Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras (c. 570-495 BC) believed in reincarnation… and he wasn’t a Buddhist. He said, “All things change, nothing perishes. As a wax is stamped with certain figures, then melted, then stamped anew with others, yet it is always the same wax. So, the soul being always the same yet wears at different times different forms.” (http://www.bartleby.com/181/341.html)

    Perhaps if people stop associating reincarnation with Buddhism and dismissing it because of that association but instead, look at reincarnation on its own merits, they would be more open to the concept. Buddha did not invent reincarnation, he merely explained his observation of it. Reincarnation is not a Buddhist concept but a universal one.

  13. David Lai on Feb 5, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Personally, I was ambivalent about reincarnation from the beginning. I have always thought that it is like what the Christian say about God. It must exist but there’s no hardcore proof of it, This is until I met Rinpoche and what he told me of the High Lamas in the monastery. There are many spiritually attained masters that could recall people from their previous lives. Some have even self-recognized their own previous lives. Is this amazing or what?!

    And these days, Rinpoche had been particularly active in blogging all manner of information for our knowledge and contemplation. Some of my most favourite are these kinda posts that makes us think and reflect on the evidence presented. I think such blog post show that reincarnation do exist because there are just too many evidences around the world and from cultures and people who didn’t believe in reincarnation. On top of that, their details can sometimes be verified. There’s also a growing interest in past life regression therapy and study. All this must co-relate to the fact that reincarnation does happen. I do think that it is a natural progression for all of us and it wasn’t invited in India by the Hindus or even by the Buddha. It was merely observed by them and it became part of their mainstream thought.

  14. Paul Clifton on Feb 4, 2013 at 9:08 am

    Tsemtulku, I also hold vivid memories of my previous life. I was a female child living in western Pennsylvania and die around the age of eight years old. I am now 55 years of age and the first dream like visions started at age 7 and repeated the dream from the beginning and continue further into the memory at 12, 19 and 24. at 24 years of age the memories never surfaced again. these memories had such an impression upon my heart that I always knew this was more than a dream. Around 1987 my wife and I took a trip to western Pennsylvania for a nation Rainbow gathering and took a detour from the normal route due to the day being extremely hot and the air-cooled engine in my Vw van couldn’t handle the heat of the day so we took a valley route. along this valley drive we came upon a small town. I immediately recognize the place and looked up onto a high hill. there was my home exactly as in the memories of this previous life. I wanted to stop at the house to see if my relatives still lived there and describe the thing in the up stairs attic to give more strength to my story. I never did stop in ,because I know this was not part of realizing the truth and didn’t want to upset anyone with a stranger coming into the house claiming to be a previous occupant. I talk to another Buddhist teacher that I meet once a year and he say’s the masters call this memory just and echo of the past. know I feel that this explains the memory since I couldn’t make sense of how this memory can with the present mind that I have now. Any more ideals on this my friend?

  15. Henry Ooi on Jan 13, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    I am a believer of reincarnation, reading and watching documentary videos of doctors and scientists investigating and interviewing people who claim they have recollections of their past lives further cement my belief. So many proofs of remembering past life events, names, faces only these people knew that happened in their previous lives; and of birthmarks, scars and inflicted wounds caused in their previous lives and appearing in their present, are hard not to believe that reincarnation exists.

  16. Natalie on Jan 12, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Thank you for these videos on reincarnation. I especially like the Dr Weiss talk, and what he had found through his regressions of patients, like the idea that we are here to learn lessons on how to be more compassionate and less violent. It was also interesting that he found people tended to meet the same people throughout their different lives. I also found it amazing that he had progressed people into the future and one man talked of coming from another planet to earth in a previous life!

    • sarahyap on Mar 17, 2013 at 5:52 pm

      Hi Natalie,

      Yes, I like Dr Brian’s talk too. I was brought up with a background that believes in reincarnation and karma, but Dr Brian’s books were the first one that showed me solid prove that reincarnation exists and is actually recognized in modern science. Amazing isn’t it? I wonder if there are any other things within the Buddhist context which can be proven true with increasing advancements in science and the understanding of the human mind.

  17. Adrian Cho on Jan 12, 2013 at 4:01 am

    This video and story was so nice, that we can knows more about reincarnation 🙂 It is definitely true and I believed it, that all is depends on our Karma to reborn be human again in different body. If we don’t have this good Karma, I’m sure we won’t reborn be human again 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this meaningful post to us.

  18. Lim Han Nee on Jan 11, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the video on young people who remembered their past lives. Together with the affirmation by Dr Weiss,via regression therapy on his patients (and their recounting of their past lives), these stories of the two boys, especially Cameron,do bring home the point that there is no doubt that reincarnation exists.

    Though some of Cameron’s recollections do not tally with what was unearthed through study of past records, yet we can see clearly how deeply moved he was when he visited his past life’s home. Such emotions as he displayed, especially coming from a young child, speak volumes for the authenticity of his remembering his past life.

    2000 cases of children who could recall their past lives have been investigated; and there is a ‘consistency’ about their manner of recounting what they recollected about their past lives that strongly supports the fact that re-incarnation does exist.

    Skeptics may scoff at the idea of reincarnation and say things like people wanting to believe in reincarnation because they seek comfort in the thought that they are coming back here again after they die.Yet the fact is that, for a Buddhist, reincarnation and karma go hand in hand, to keep us on a path of abandonment of non-virtuous actions for fear of being reborn in the lower realms after death.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these videos with us.

    I truly believe in Reincarnation! I read many books on this subject and i know that even in Christianity , there are many references to reincarnation in the Old Testaments and in the New Testaments (in all the 4 Gospels). However in the present day, the average Christian church do not permit the teaching nor acceptance of this doctrine. In the Jewish sacred books like the Zohar, the Manasseh ben Israel , the doctrine of reincarnation is also mentioned by the term ‘migration of the soul’.

    I remembered an elderly relative telling me this wonderful story of her grand nephew, who at the age of 3 years old, looked at the old family photos on the wall and named everyone in the photos by their names (all these people in the photos have long been deceased ), then pointing at the photo of the patriarch in the photo , declared that is him ! (The patriarch would be this little boy’s great grandfather). This little fellow had all the time refused to address his grandfather by the traditional term ‘Ah Kong’ (the chinese term for grandfather) but would insist on calling him by his nickname ,a name that was only used by the patriarch for his son since birth. No one had told the little boy this very special nickname nor had anyone shown him any photos of any of the ancestors. This is a true story and is still being told whenever the family meets up. The little boy is now in his late thirties and he only has a vague memory of that particular period of this childhood.

    Reincarnation is an essential part of the whole life and death cycle. It cannot be taken out of the equation !

  20. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jan 9, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    身为一名佛教徒,我坚决的相信轮回转世,因为这是唯一可以解释许多发生在人的事情上。为什么有事时我们会觉得和某些人似曾相识,对某些没有去过的地方感到熟悉,和初相识的人相处的特别融洽,等等。现在,更有这么多的视频可以证明轮回的真实性,不管在在科学或宗教的角度都一再的说明了轮回的存在,所以也因为有轮回,我们在能有机会成为更好的人,所以大家一起来努力修习佛法,让自己的来世可以变得更好。

  21. KYC on Jan 8, 2013 at 1:00 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this reincarnation video. This and other stories like this one proves that there is reincarnation. The boy Cameron who remembers his previous life’s family and missing his mother reminds me of the Tibetan lamas who when young can also remember their previous life. They long for the monastery and they can recognise people like their former attendants and so on. The majority of people forget their past lives because of karmic obscurations. In order to recall past existences, one has to meditate like the Buddha. But one can also resort to hypnotism which may or may not work.

  22. sarahyap on Jan 7, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    Reincarnation do exists, regardless of what religion we are in, all religions talks about reincarnation… it is whether a person want’s to misinterpret it to something else or not.

    To some people, knowing about reincarnation infact probably will make them think “Oh well, if I don’t make it in this life, I always have another life to make up for it”… I think that thinking to a certain level is so wrong…

    As a person that studies little Dharma such as myself, I feel after knowing about reincarnation and the 6 realms of samsara… I truly feel everything is urgent and I want to get out of samsara! After all, reincarnation does not say that you’d be guaranteed a life in the human realm… what happens if you miss your chance in this lifetime to do Dharma and reborn as a dog in the next life? Such a waste…

    I hope with everyone realizing that reincarnation is real, they will see that this life is as insignificant as a speck of sand in the desert… So pointless to accumulate when we will leave it eventually at the time of death and take on a new rebirth only to crave more because that is all we have been doing in the last life. The only way to make our lives meaningful is to focus out… live for others. It is only in others can we then truly find happiness and is the way out of reincarnating within samsara.

  23. Joy on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    Reincarnation and ancient belief of the Buddhist and Hindus or just basically one of the laws of existence which Buddha taught thousands of years ago. It’s funny how the West always makes it such a huge mystical mystery of some other force at work… there is no other force folks… it’s basically just you yourself isn’t it? It’s hilarious because we know Dharma but for those who shun this thought or is discouraged from thinking so, it is a huge phenomena. It is interesting to see how even the most conservative and narrow minded are force to open up and look in to the possibilities of an after life when they face to face with evidences that are too compelling too genuine to be ignored. Hence if there is reincarnation it means there is also karma which determines our future life 😉

    It is very touching to see birds capable of emotions and feelings that we thought only humans and mammals are capable of. I felt that the mourning is a powerful display of the understanding of loss, which is very rare. I hope the lovebirds will find each other in their next life. Thank you for this sharing.

    Like what Rinpoche said …….(There is no right and wrong religion for you to personally follow…) Different religions and faith teachings are all the same having the same aim. To be kind ,helpful, compassion ,not to harm in any way and to do good . Whatever religion we practice as long we are comfortable and feels it can helps to transform our mind to be a better person. It is very important to have harmony and respect amongst the different religions and their practitioners. As long we have better understanding, enhance tolerance and build acceptance in each other different religious beliefs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Yin yang is a complex concept in Chinese culture that has developed over thousands of years. They have been applying the concept of yin and yang in their daily lives. Taoists believe that the path to wisdom and happiness involves emptying the mind and settling into a deep stillness. What I understand from those beautiful words is learning to let go, while staying detached and behaving simply. We will see our effectiveness grow , do not glorify ourselves and always display ourselves in a humble manner.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these great words of wisdom

    Power and powerful positions have most often been associated with male as opposed to female gender. But now more and more female are in positions of power. Across the world more female are working than ever before, and are very successful holding the top post. In Kechara itself is so blessed with many powerful female energy.

    Malaysia become a tourist attraction especially for those who love the natural beauty of forests and Islands. Besides, Malaysia has a tropical rainforest climate of a temperature between 23 and 32 °C throughout the year. Because of that reason, many tourists will choose Malaysia as a good summer destination.

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos and the directions to the Island respectively.

    The pictures are all amazing. The picture of the road in Condor/Podul Olt – Brașov somewhat reminds me of the winding road in Wu Tai Shan but of course the condition in China is very different. Each part of the world has its beauty. We all should appreciate and maintain all these beautiful spots and not spoil it be it environment or the architecture of the buildings.

    Wow…..such a beautiful, stunning and blessed Vajra Yogini statue from Panchen Rinpoche’s Tashilunpo Monastery. It was blessed by many high lamas and given to Rinpoche by his father. That’s wonderful and meritorious special gift from a father. I am fortunate able to see it even though it is just in picture.

    Lawrence Anthony was an international conservationist, environmentalist, explorer and bestselling author. He was the long-standing head of conservation at the Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, South Africa. He was one compassionate man who has devoted his life to conserve saving trapped rhinos, and elephants . He was known as “The Elephant Whisperer”, and made world headlines when he rescued animals in war-torn Baghdad at Saddam Hussein’s zoo. A very touching article about him with his work and his elephants which I do enjoyed reading. I did google more information about him and his books. Amazing after his death, a group of wild elephants Anthony helped to rescue and rehabilitate travelled to his house as if they knew of his passing. A wonderful acknowledgement of broken-hearted elephants mourning the loss of their human friend that is incredible. It show clearly that they too have feelings of grieving and mourning other than pain and suffering. Animals are aware of what is happening in their worlds.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful article.

    Incredible captured of a sandstorms with 2 mysterious objects flying through in and out and later only discovered it was orbs.
    The unidentified flying objects were seen in the giant storm by those who recorded . On that particular day all flights was forced to ground by the airport authorities due to the giant sandstorms or they called it Haboob. It seem that one of the objects appears to grow and could change shape. There are a number of UFOs been sighted during natural disasters.
    So what was it no one really knows but for sure scientist have discovered it’s the UFO. The UFO phenomenon has been one of the most intriguing topics discussed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this amazing video.

    Resultant Kechari Lady Vajra Yogini, how can I choose samsara over You. Bless me in this and all lives to discover You from a very young age and never stray away from You. Bless me in every life from a very young age I meet a qualified guru to receive Your practice, the instructions, the transmissions and meditations without hesitation. Wherever I am in the six realms, please may I meet You always and not find You when it’s too late in my life when samsara has taken hold of my habits. Bless me when I do Your practice, sadhana, meditations, generation and completion stages and the signs of sindhura appear on my crown. Beautiful Maiden appear to me with a bliss swirl on Your forehead and by prostrating to You and by clinging to You, may the bliss swirl transfer to my forehead. By the force of the four causes as spoken by Vajradharma, may I reach Kacho land. The bliss swirl (gakyil) of wisdom and great bliss swirl transferred to my forehead and therefore make me light as I grab hold of You my refuge. As I open my eyes, I hear the divine music of damarus, cymbals, long horns, vajra and bells and the melodius chanting of songs of emptiness by the dakas and dakinis as I ascend within Your embrace to a place in the ‘sky’ that has no more sufferings. Kechara the outer manifestation of Your enlightenment is a place blessed to practice and encounter enlightenment is where I wish to go and take all beings who encounter me Your lowly ambassador…Day and night I long to see the Adamantine Maiden at my door with the bliss swirl and on that day sindhura powder appears on my crown. You are my refuge supreme, the destroyer of samsara and the affectionate Buddha Mother, Tsem Rinpoche

    These are really interesting facts. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing. Fact that opens up my mind would be the one on the asteroid. The fact on how it takes 63,000 trees to print an average Sunday edition of The New York Times triggers my conscience to care for our environment. The cockroach’s ability to live upto 9 days without its head makes me wonder if the brain is as important as it seems to some living beings, same goes with the fact on ostrich.

    Reincarnation is the continuation of one’s existence of the mind lifetime after lifetime. The deeper meaning of reincarnation ties to the law of Karma and knowing that we are the designer to our own destiny. Knowing that our “life” does not end when we die, we should be motivated and inspired to do the right things now in order for our future to be better. It is very liberating because we are not forever bind to the situation we are in; we can always improve our situation.

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!

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.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    Cham is sacred dance. A dance that enacts the life story of a holy being. By participating in Cham, one is blessed to see the sacred life story of a being celebrated. This is a cham on Dorje Shugden. It\\\'s a short clip but interesting none-the-less. Tsem Rinpoche

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
