Below is the same video but with Chinese subtitle

My Dearest and Holiest Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche,

I have heard you have decided to manifest a stroke. I was very shocked, concerned and scared all at once. Such a great teacher like you takes many years to manifest and you should not think of leaving all of us. Your compassionate work is far from done and far from over. So many need you and your light.

I have taped a messsage for you and I offer it from my heart. Please excuse my presumptuous self thinking you will even have the time to watch/listen to my message…. but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE heal yourself. I know you have the attainments to do so. Please manifest your attainments to heal yourself as I know you are definitely highly attained. In this age of unruly beings, we create all types of negative karma to impair your work. To impair the growth of great masters.. Please do not let the unruly karma of all of us win and manifest healing. I know you are no other than an attained master as I have always believed this from the first time I met You in 1987. With folded hands I request you to hear my video message.

With trembling heart and faith, your worthless admirer, student and follower,

Tsem Rinpoche (Kuala Lumpur April 27, 2011)

    With this teaching I know about the truth of high lama getting sick. High lama get sick to benefit his students and others. How compassion a high being can be. Without knowledge and guidance, we will only see things and view people with wrong views.

    Without Holiest Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s help and compassion, Rinpoche would face with more difficulties to go to Gaden.

    I love the part when Rinpoche talks about moon as the Guru/qualities of Guru and lake as we/our mind. How much good qualities of a Guru could have will not able to be learned or gained by a student if he/she refuse to calm their mind down, or to have a clear mind to reflect the qualities of the moon on the lake.

    To have a moon on top of a lake is an opportunity, to have it reflects perfectly on the lake is an effort or sincerity as a student should make.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching and Lama Zopa for his kindness.

      I like what your comments and your understanding Wah Ying! Yes it is true, everything the Guru does is a manifestation which comes from the students samaya with their Guru. Through Lama Zopa’s manifested illness, students are given a chance to make more merits in caring for their Lama and also in amending their broken samaya if any.

      The Guru mirror the student, this I have noticed through many years of being close to Rinpoche, which I really am fortunate and sometimes feel undeserving, for Rinpoche is like the big huge sun or moon and to near the Lama, one needs to have tremendous merit and the right mindset, otherwise it can be a dangerous path for both student and Lama. Without strong faith, clear motivation and priorities, student could end up collecting more negative karma for being so close to an attained being. Dangerous for the Lama because He absorbs the students negative karma which could manifest in illness such as Lama Zopa’s case above. Hence it is very important to be firm in our motivation and clear what is the reasons we are in Dharma. Of course without saying the benefits of doing Dharma and being close to one’s Lama allows one to collect enormous amount of merits and purification. There has been many Buddhist stories that if your Guru Devotion is strong, you can gain attainments in one life time or even Enlightenment.

    rinposhce tsem tulku im blessed because i get to see a huge bunch of human beings touched by lama Zopa Rinpoche actually i dont have time to understand all of everything all i know is the people delivered by Zopa Rinpoche in Queensland on the sunshine coast is doing an unbeleivable job beyond the imagination of western standard thought

  6. Rosella Sarno on Mar 27, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku
    thank you for your video, which I’ve just happened to watch. It is very touching and your words and kindness have encouraged me to do much more for my Teacher Lama Zopa, who has actually saved both my mind and body. If I’m still alive and happy, I owe it to His great kindness and compassion. Never ever in my life I’ve felt Loved and Cared. As I’m writing to you, tears are pouring down… My greatest wish is to pay Him a visit, personally thank Him, show all my gratitude and have His blessing. I wish I can bow down to His feet and show Him all my gratitude, and all my regret for all my wrongdoings in this and all past lives.
    Thank you again for sharing your story and your pain about the news. I was very distraught too, and fell sick with high fever on the very same day he had the stroke.
    My devotion to you too, who certainly are His precious loving child.
    Rosella Sarno from Italy

    Great Lamas has great ability to heal themselves as RInpoche told the story of Zong Rinpoche who was requested by the 14th Dalai Lama to stay longer. Zong Rinpoche did as he was advised did the retreat and vitality came back to his body and his back straightened out too. The only thing that stops a lama form healing is the karma of the students.

  8. Li Kheng on Jun 5, 2011 at 2:25 am

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for Rinpoche’s guidance on how to practice Guru Devotion so as to keep our Gurus with us to turn the wheel of Dharma. As an Enlightened Master, Rinpoche is so compassionate to “cope” with our level of ignorance and give such a detailed message on what students can do to create the causes for their Gurus to remain healthy and live long to teach the Dharma. I fold my hands to Rinpoche and bow my head to Rinpoche’s feet in deep gratitude!

    I pray for Lama Zopa to heal swiftly and continue His great work to benefit beings during these periods of great distractions. May all Dharma student practice sincerely and reveal signs of progress to create the merit and attainment for Lama Zopa and all attained Masters to stay with us and spread the Dharma in all 10 directions.

  9. weeliang on May 18, 2011 at 4:04 am

    Tayatha Om bekanze bekanze maha bekanze bekanze rantsa samugathe soha. May Lama Zopa’s manifestation of a stroke serve its purpose and Lama Zopa can recover swiftly to continue His Eminence’s great works.

  10. R P Thubten Thundup on May 2, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    To Ven. Tsem Tulku,

    As a student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, I am verry touched by your video-message to him and all of us. I had the great opportunity to meet him again last fall, at Kopan, and recieved his blessings. As I gave hime a letter asking some verry precise questions on the topic of Guru Devotion, the next day, someone I did just meet and told about my letter, gave me his copy of Lama Zopa’s book: The heart of the path (About Guru devotion); last winter, waiting for My guru’s reply to my letter, I recieved an e-mail from LYWA or FPMT and the first text of Lama Zopa was his answers on questions of another student about Guru-Dévotion; still thinking about him and strongly wishing (praying) for recievingan answer from Him, I heard the news of his stroke from Australian friends and saw his laughing filmed at the hospital few days after his stroke; today, after watching this vidéo of him laughing and talking with difficulty, I find your message! What you tell us is a great teachind, a great reminder to continu to work on our (well… on mine for sure) Guru -Devotion by applying the teachings and advices that we have recieved from our guru’s love.
    I bow to you Tsem Tulku for that gift I recieve through your message!
    I bow to my guru’s lotus feet, Kabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche for his kindness in taking this form for our benefit and I pray that he will recover 120 % !!

    With great respect,
    Raymond Philippe Thubten Thundup

    I take refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with my body speech and mind. Please grant blessings on my mind. Big thanks for very kind and inspiring words. Yes, Kybje Zopa is a very powerful and realised being and has touched soooooooo many lives. I was very fortunate to be in the first 2 weeks of retreat before Rinpoche manifested stroke. Teachings were amaaaazing and Rinpoche was so kind and generous to us all. I hope you can one day come to Bendigo to see the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion. The sutra teachings given by Rinpoche were in the shell of the Great Stupa. So much good energy. Thank you so much for your prayers for Kybje Zopa Rinpoche, I hope he sees your message. BIGLOVE

    Thankyou Thankyou Rimpoche for this beautiful video and teaching us the importance of Guru. I have experienced similar miracles with him.
    And thankyou for strengthening the belief that he has manifested our negetivity on himself. Long live Lama Zopa Rimpoche. may he have a very healthy and happy life ahead.

  14. Plinio Tsai on Apr 29, 2011 at 2:27 am

    Tsem Rinpoche, again you are showing an unexpected and uncommon behaviour of maitri and karuna towards all …
    I thank you for your words. But I would like to ask you something. When a high Lama, like Lama Zopa himself, you, and so forth, take birth, the body comes from sperm and ovulum from father and mother. Therefore there is common link between the karma of them and the human body of the Lama. Even though this Lama can be a arya bodhisattva or a Buddha, then comes the question.
    How the Lama have to deal with this karmic link with mother and father genetics diseases? Even though he has the power to heal himself, the trilaksana – anatman, lack of inherent existence of a self, anytia, impermanence, and dukkha, suffering, tha happens in a chain of consequences of effects in all phenomena, is still in his body, and since he received it from father and mother, them there is the karmic link of genetics diseases, so therefore is there a point to him show self-healing, or it is much more important to remind us all of death, impermanence and karmic law?
    By being a Buddha or an Arya Bodhisattva, Lama Zopa Rinpoche does not have a common being sufferings, or not sufferings at all, and is it not a skillfull mean, like displayed by the Buddha Shakyamuni himself in his paranirvana, to show us, to remind us of the truth of all compositional phenomena decay?
    Sorry to bother you with this sillies questions. The fact is that this questions keep poping up my mind and you seems to have being putted yourself with a high level of energy and intensity of thinking about that in order to understand and realize the emptiness of this question.
    I thank you very much for your explanation. Please be patient with all of us and always turn the Wheel of Dharma.

  15. Koh Hee Peng on Apr 28, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    Chanted 10 malas of Green Tara mantra and dedicate the merits collected to speed recovery of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. May Lama Zopa Rinpoche has long life, no obstacles to his dharma works and be surrounded by sound and enthusiastic students.

  16. joey wong on Apr 28, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Lama Zopa’s kindness is a very clear sign of his attainments. I really love to hear about how High Lamas benefit others without agenda as it is a very clear reminder that there are individuals who dont operate on the basis of selfishness in this world.

    It is amazing how Lama Zopa helped Rinpoche when he barely knew Rinpoche…may i one day attain that kind of compassion and drive…

  17. patsy on Apr 28, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this heartfelt request for Lama Zopa to clear his stroke and be healed quickly as Lama Zopa has the attainments to heal himself.

    This is indeed a wake up call for us to keep our samaya clean and have strong guru devotion and to hold our vows and commitments well before our own Guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche also manifests sickness and poor health.

    May I join in Rinpoche’s request to Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, out of your compassion,please heal yourself and regain your health to turn the wheel of dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings.

  18. Valentina Suhendra on Apr 28, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    About seven years ago, before I met you, I came across several books written by Lama Zopa’s students on Buddhism. It attracted me to the Dharma and that was how I first learn about Buddha’s teaching and the existence of such a great being. The books were dedicated to all sentient beings’ well being. I think at the time the dedication was very powerful that I became very attracted to Dharma since then. I even contemplated on visiting Kopan monastery to meet Lama Zopa during one of his famous November teaching, being a skeptic that I am, I had never found something that attracted me so before then. I made some prayers to meet a perfect teacher who can guide me, and who is not too old so that I can benefit from his/ her guidance for a long time. Then, I found you!!!

    I am very sad to hear the news about Lama Zopa to the point of crying myself. How his students must feel right now. What and where I would be if not for the force of his blessing and strong dedications compassions made by his students.

    I feel very fortunate to have a lama that is very much alive and healthy. I regretted the fact that I sometimes waste my time due to the force of laziness and procrastination.

    My humble respect for you

    Valentina

    amitofo.may lama zopa rinpoche recover and heal quickly so does other enlightened masters.

  20. Frederick Law on Apr 28, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the this video, and the explanation. It is such a surprise how a High Attain Lama like Lama Zopa Rinpoche would manifest a stroke to himself, when i heard the news that Lama Zopa Rinpoche has suffer a stroke, i was in awe on how is it possible when a Lama who is highly attain would be in such situation, i was thinking is it due to Lama Zopa karma or something else. but with the explanation from this video, now i am more cleared and understand why the Lama Zopa Rinpoche suffer stroke, its due to his compassion to want us to keep to our vows, and practice what we’ve promise to our guru, and devote ourself into Dharma to benefit all sentients being.

    May Lama Zopa Rinpoche clear the stroke and be heal swiftly, and regain his strength as before to continue to turn the wheel of dharma, and benefit all sentients being through His work and teachings, and liberate the suffering from the samsaric world.

  21. Lim Han Nee on Apr 28, 2011 at 10:36 am

    Thank you, dear Rinpoche, for this lovely message to Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

    May Lama Zopa Rinpoche heal your speech and your body quickly so that your great compassion can continue to manifest in your wonderful work of spreading the Dharma.

    May all of us, who have precious compassionate Gurus, heed the teaching contained in this message and grow our Guru Devotion sincerely and earnestly and keep our samaya with our Gurus clean to ensure that he is with us to continue turning the wheel of dharma to benefit countless beings.

  22. Irene Lim on Apr 28, 2011 at 7:54 am

    Dear Lama Zopa, I join in my request with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Please remain with us and heal quickly and keep turning the Wheel of Dharma. So many beings need YOU. There is still so much work to do here. Please, Please, Please remain healthy and be the light to all. You have the power to do this, please stay healthy, please heal quickly and trod the globe like you used to do. With much love, Irene

  23. Bliss Green on Apr 28, 2011 at 7:22 am

    Hello! Watching this video has brought tears to my eyes. I hope Lama Zopa has a quick recovery. I studied food prep where they work with curing diabetes. Maybe someone there could check out the books by Dr.Gabriel Cousins and the Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine to help his recovery. Thank you for being a part of this world. _()_

  24. ivy francis ashudechen on Apr 28, 2011 at 6:23 am

    I do hope we have seeds to see lama Zopa getting healed. WE know He being sick is also our projection, so we should love and care much more each other in order that this could be projected and manifested as Lama Zopa health recover.
    You my dear Lama Zopa has been a great inspiration for me, may my virtue somehow makes me to see You well very soon.
    What a profound and beautiful message my dear Tsem Tulku!
    I prostate to you two with love and trust.
    May all be auspicious!
    much love

  25. Steve Tobias on Apr 28, 2011 at 5:20 am

    Very incredible message and interesting story, thank you.

    I had the privilege of seeing Lama Zopa Rinpoche in Sept of last year, at Kurukulla center in Boston, for the blessing of the Kalachakra stupa they had finished. I dragged my girlfriend at the time there (to sneak in a blessing without her knowing haha). That center is very kind, yet shortly after that event their teacher Geshe Tsulga passed away and entered clear light, and now Lama Zopa Rinpoche (who founded the center) has had a stroke. I feel very bad for them.

    It must be true that Lama Zopa Rinpoche manifested the stroke, because I remember hearing years ago that Lama Zopa Rinpoche does NOT SLEEP at all, but would enter a deep (tantric) meditation for 30 minutes at night, then spend the rest of the night making offerings to benefit other beings.

    In case anyone happens to be interested, Kurukulla emailed me this site which has all the updates on Lama Zopa Rinpoche, along with mantras one can recite for his health: http://www.kurukulla.org/LZR-Update.php

    Thanks

  31. Thierry Janssens on Apr 27, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    If one indeeds decides to endure a stroke out of compassion for others, I find this truly remarkable!
    This would then be a clear example of putting other’s interest before oneself.

    I believe that to take care of someone that is ill is already a generous practice, but to take care of someone that is giving his life and health to others and that falls ill, is helping more than just the ill person, it is creating conditions for helping more than just one person.

    If the doctor falls ill, he cannot treat patients anymore, by assisting the doctor to regain his health, he can help many others again.

    Thus also, when we don’t help, many more than just one person suffers the consequences.

    It is true all the emotions comes from our mind. Most of the time we tend to see a problem to be so big which we can actually have a choice to dilute it and make it smaller. We always have our expectation on everything and once it goes against ours, we are not happy and anger arise. Therefore we should control our mind and not let it direct us to think and act negatively.

    It’s so heartwarming to watch the short video. The bond between Sirga and Valentine are so strong, like meeting an old friend. This video reminds me that animals is just like human and have feelings, therefore treat all of them with respect and care.

    Thank you for sharing the updates on Buddhist community from Tibet and elsewhere. All these grand and meaningful events around the world since 2011 up until 2018 are now accessible to everyone, which was previously not made widely available. It goes to show that more and more people care and are interested about the news and movements of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly Dorje Shugden events. These events also dispel the myths that DS is a minor sect – check out the crowds! Massive numbers of sangha and lay people turn up at these events for the blessing and initiation to DS Sogtae. These events are evidence that religious freedom is enshrined in Tibet, China and other parts of the world; seems like the only place where there is no religious freedom for DS practitioners are under the rule of Dharamsala. Therefore, events updates of DS practitioners gathered together to receive initiation and teachings are really very encouraging. Rejoice to all who received the sogtae!

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Can imagine the situation ,the pain and suffering of that poor pig. They the many of these sows live in cages just large enough to contain their bodies. Sows have a pregnancy lasting around four months and their freedom of movement are restricted .Sad to see that situation ,hoping more can be done to improve it. But the best choice is go on vegetarian so less killing , less consuming meat.

    Happiness , depression, anger, frustration, bitterness is a choice. All is based on how we interpreting each situation in our life and the meaning we associate with. To feel happy, focus on things in our life that will make us feel happy. What ever we see and thinks can lead to thoughts and influences our performance. It is our emotions that influence the way we think and behave We are to accept and the ability to adapt to the challenges of our daily life. A powerful meaning behind this short story. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and powerful post that will helps us in our daily life.

    Wow…. a brilliant picture of the two greatest masters of Tibetan Buddhism. Trijang Rinpoche was a Gelugpa monk and the 16th Karmapa, a Karma Kagyu, enjoying a beautiful relationship based on respect and trust. There were no conflict between them. It seem that in one lifetime, both of them did even interchange incarnations. There is an interesting story regarding both of them. Both enlightened manifesting again and again for the benefit of others .From the picture it tell us a thousands word of wisdom between both of them. H.H. the 16th Karmapa and H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche remained close friends throughout their life. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this a brilliant picture of the two greatest masters for us and merely seeing it is a blessing.

    Princess Dewa Nimbo once said that if Tsem Rinpoche was really a high lama, he would eventually find his own way back onto his spiritual path. The Promise tells the story of it.

    Out of compassion, Buddha Manjushri emanate in the form of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to help us swiftly.

    Now, with the blessings of our precious guru, we are so fortunate to receive these precious advice from Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden reminded us that dharma practice is based on our faith and pure motivation. When we do for any virtuous actions with the pure motivation and out of the Eight Worldly Concerns, it definitely will bring much beneficial not only ourselves but also many others. We should start to practice by letting go our small “self” and slowly let go the big “self”. Eventually we are able to do more that benefit others instead of only ourselves.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    It’s so amazing that since thousand of years ago people already have such high technologies in constructing strong and amazing building that till today we may not necessary be able to achieve. Also it is just amazing that the mummies found in the temple were so well preserved. While many scientists and archeologists are trying their best to find out how, what and where about all this mysteries findings, I hope they use the right method to get into these place and with respect. After all , these places are suppose to be holy .

    Thank you Rinpoche and Lord Dorje Shugden for sharing his precious advises to us during this New Year. It is a good reminder for us to practise dharma and transform our mind. If our mind don’t transform we will forever doing the wrong actions and not able to change our path. Practising Guru Devotion is also very important as “The foundation for every realisation is to properly rely on one’s kind Guru”.

    May I have the opportunity to always learn dharma from my kind Guru, Tsem Rinpoche in every life time.

    It’s amazing to see the self arising images of the holy places and also to read the stories. All the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have great compassion in emanating in various forms in order to suit the people of that place to pray, practise and generate merits. We are so fortunate to have our Guru Tsem Rinpoche to guide us and share with us all the dharma and holy places so we can learn and widen our knowledge. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing this beautiful article.

    The story of Anagarika Dharmapala is inspiring. He contributed to the revival of Buddhism greatly, and I am especially at awe with his work to regain “control” over Bodhgaya’s Maha Bodhi Temple from the Hindu Brahmins, who had controlled the site for centuries. This holy site is the chief of the four ancient Buddhist holy sites that are of utmost importance to Buddhist. Today, the site is entrusted to a committee with equal numbers of Hindu and Buddhist members. Even though the announcement of this outcome came 16 years after Anagarika Dharmapala’s passing, the success was his legacy.

    Anagarika Dharmapala’s intellectuality in Buddhism was not disregarded; he was one of the two speakers who inspired the first wave of interest in Buddhism amongst the heart of European-Americans who were deeply rooted in Christianity during to culture and upbringing. As a learned person, his writings on Buddhism give perspective from a philosophical, historical and also a practical point of view, making it relevant for many people of different intellectual level. I enjoy reading this article. Thank you for the sharing, Rinpoche and PAW.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this stunning thangka. Traditionally, thangka paintings are not only valued for their aesthetic beauty. We use thangkas to develop a clear visualization of a particular deity and strengthening our concentration and connecting a link between ourselves and the deity. Gyuto Tantric college is one of the great monastic institutions of the Gelug. Beautiful, colourful, spiritual art and looks fantastic and blessing for everyone looking at it. Amazing it shows the Three ‘Kingly’ Tantras as explained by Rinpoche.

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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

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.

    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.
    4 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)
