I visited Wow Wow Pets Shop at OUG some time ago. This is the shop where I adopted Yogi/Mumu 6 years ago, and the shop is owned by a very loving lady called Elize. I would like to share some of Mumu’s family “reunion” pictures with you.

This is the owner, Elize. She loves her dogs very much…

Here is Elize & Mumu (below). Mumu wears a protected/blessed string and Manjushri pendant. I want Mumu to be blessed always and plant seeds for his future lives. By Manjushri touching my mumu daily, it will plant powerful dharma seeds in his mindstream. I created these pendants for pets. They are safe and have no sharp edges. I wanted everyone’s pet to be blessed. I have them available at KECHARA PARADISE OUTLETS and online.

Mumu being with me has to bear positive dharma fruits for him in the future hence I created the Manjushri pendants for him. Inspired by Mumu to have it available for all pets.  I love my Mumu very much…. Mumu is my good boy….

Well that’s my little Mumu’s family reunion. I guess it will be nice for them to meet up sometimes again and again. I enjoyed seeing them so much together. Very cute family.

    Wonderful photos. Thank you!

    Oh..they are so cute and they do look very much alike.

  3. Chin Fei on Jun 30, 2010 at 12:50 am

    they are super cute!! I love them :D i do hope those stray dogs would get help.

    It warms my heart to also find that there are people who still thinks of family reunions and extends the same idea to the others (animals, pets included). Even they have their parents, their siblings and family members. Although they do not speak, but they have feelings too. I believe that pictures above have shown how happy Mumu was when he was reunited with his family.

  5. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jul 1, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    Definitely animals have feelings and can be affected by pleasant and unpleasant sensations.
    We should do our best to make animals not suffer. We should not add to their difficult situations. Karma is karma, but we don’t need to make it worse for them.
    Be kind to animals, and never hurt them. Never eat them.
    Be vegetarian, be healthy, be clean and be human.

    It’s really nice to know the family of our pets and let them meet. If they were not separated and remained with each other till adulthood, they might be very closed to each other. My male cat and her mother was super close, it was so warm and fun to watch.
    I also want to share about my first pet dog. My first dog because I am more of a cat person. However, she changed my mind about dogs. She was a poodle and her name was Tara. Coincident but I did not name her. She was given to me. Her name was given by my friend Huck who is keeping her mother and her sister, Karma. Occasionally, we will meet up and let them play together. Was such great times together.
    2 years back, Tara went missing. I have searched for her for many months via forums, posters in vets, flyer distribution but with no luck. She’s been to the beach, camping, movies and sleeps on my bed every single night. So you see, we were very close. Her lost saddens me deeply, but I have to let go. What upsets me still is that I wished she would have had the opportunity to be blessed with the pet pendant that Rinpoche has created to plant seeds for her future lives.
    My advice to everyone who loves their dogs to get a Manjushri pet pendant before it’s too late. You can get it from any Kechara Paradise outlets. Location details here -> http://www.kechara.com/shopping

    Ha.. Ha… cute little Mumu. Mumu is the mascot of Kechara Animal Sanctuary. Mumu is a rare gem in the sense that Mumu spends the most time with Rinpoche day and night and even sleeps with Rinpoche. He is well trained by Rinpoche and develops a strong bonding with his Master. Mumu is obedient little cute monster. Rinpoche has mentioned before Mumu could be his past life student. Rinpoche is creating the condition for little Mumu to have good imprints of the Dharma for him to gain a precious human rebirth again to practice the Dharma so he may not have to go through countless of lives immerse in samsara. Mumu is so blessth.

  8. Jutika on Jul 6, 2010 at 12:12 am

    Seeing Mumu with his family reminds me of my family, my mum, my dad and my brother and me playing together. They are a very good family and I hope that he and his family will plant the seeds of dharma for their future lives. I think that with Mumu being with Rinpoche, it will be good for him and hopefully take rebirth in a good place. And he might be able to learn the dharma in the future. I hope that mumu can see his mother father and sister again soon. cuttttttttttttttte! May he and his family always be free from suffering.

    Even dogs recognises it own family. Its pretty amazing after so long apart mumu able to do so. I wonder why some human’s couldnt do it. Throwing away new born babies , disowned their parents , neglecting their own child and etc… . Futhermore the way Elize taking care of dogs at her shop , carefully selecting who to sold the dogs to its very respectable. In this time of our lives rarely we will have a person that while trying to make a living with her business and at the same times cares so much about all those dogs that are her “product”. Its not easy to balance out both. To elize you are very very kind.
    Elize has shown me the true meaning of kindness and care for all living beings even if its an animal.

    It was a happy day for Mumu and Family! Everyone reunited once again and there was lots and lots of barking!
    But the happiest person in the room we could all see was Elize! She loved mumu so much and Rinpoche told us the story about how the first time Rinpoche came to see Mumu, she was checking Rinpoche out to see if He was going to be treating Mumu right. She was firm and very straight forward. She is definitely not a pet shop owner that wants to just make a quick buck. She really does care for her animals and this is a quality you can hardly find in most pet shop owner these days. Now Elize is part of our big happy Kechara family!!!
    Her genuine unconditional care and love for animals is something we can all learn.

  11. Sean Wang on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    It makes my heart feel infinitely warm and fuzzy inside seeing the pictures of Mumu’s little family reunion. Truthfully, I could not tell them apart. They look so cute together. I am seriously happy that animals are getting taken care of very well these days. I think that the picture of Mumu and Gal-gal sniffing each other was so very CUTE!!! I have tried to put the Manjushri pendants on my pets but they make it break easily. I think the picture of the owner, Elize and Mumu looks totally priceless because you can see a look in her eyes showing her happiness to meet Mumu and hug him.

  12. Wasukamol on Jul 7, 2010 at 6:07 am

    My heart feel warms to see the lovely photos of mumu with his family, i remembered that rinpoche discovered mumu father, smoky from where we Rinpoche got mumu from (elize shop) in many years back and it brought a surprise to us to know that mumu just look alike with his father, smoky..
    This will be a memorable day for mumu to meet up with his father, mother and sister and to stay and spent sometime, it seem like in CNY that everyone to to meet their family and spent time together.hehe Mumu is a cute.. good boy, he deserved to meet up with his family. Happy family day!!!

  13. Yokefui on Jul 8, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    How many of us will think of a family reunion for our pets ? Rinpoche’s thoughtfulness extends to his beloved Mumu’s family, amazing !
    Mumu is indeed a special dog. He absolutely adores Rinpoche. He is always the centre of attraction whenever Rinpoche brings him to our gatherings.
    It’s said Mumu in his previous life was Rinpoche’s student. I strongly believe so because I had seen him prostrating to Rinpoche. Sometimes when he is in a playful mood, no body can stops him except Rinpoche. A firm “No !” from Rinpoche will put Mumu back in line. I can’t say the same for some of us students ! Looks like we got quite a bit to learn from Mumu.

  14. Susan Lim on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:28 am

    Mu mu is one special doggie, so fortunate to be with Rinpoche. Due to poor health, mu mu may not have been so well taken care of somewhere else…
    It was indeed a HAPPY day..oh my, Mu Mu was so excited. He came into WOW WOW in a doggie pram hehe….and was then let down to sniff sniff around. Mu Mu’s mom is such a sweetie..so fat haha…while Mu Mu’s dad sure is handsome!! Mu Mu’s sista is very shy and super cute :)
    Elize really loves them all so much and takes such good care of them. I heard that Elize would only let her puppies go if she is comfortable with the family. I wish more pet stores are this responsible and not just about making money.

    I found out about the Manjushri pendants when I was checking Rinpoche’s blog. I thought to myself I must have the pendants for my current two cats. So that the cats are blessed by wearing the pendants.
    I have adopted two stray cats. One is Patches she has been with me about close to one year, she is white with yellow patches all over, and the other is Mandrake I adopted this black kitty one day as I was driving back from Kechara House I saw a kitten trying to cross the road. I had seen so many roadkills I did not want this one to be one too. So I went to catch the kitten. It took me about half an hour before I managed to throw a sack over it and it was a relief to finally catch mandrake as he was very hungry and exhausted from me chasing him all over the side of the monsoon drain. Thanks to Rinpoche’s creation my two cats have something to bless their bodies.

    I am happy to see mumu have his family reunion. Sister “gal gal” and mumu dady “smoky” look so adorable and cute. Rinpoche always take good care of mumu even think of let mumu meet his whole family. Can see from the picture every mumu family are happy can see mumu come back home to visit them.
    Hence, rinpoche always teach us no abuse animal because they are just like us have feeling and senescence. They born at the animal realm because of the karmic recycle has fall of them. We should treasure born as the human and change to meet dharma and practice dharma in this precious human life. So stop harm animal and be nice with them. To practice the kindness to animal, rinpoche has advice be vegetarian to create the cause for the Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest.

    Wonderful photos

  19. Jutika on Jan 23, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Very cute to see Mumu going to visit his father, mother and his sister! This is such a major cute attack. I just love the part where Mumu’s mom is acting like a real house wife and scolding them!

    If i had the space and money I would surely love to take care of Mumu and his family as they are just so cute and they never fail to warm my heart the very instance i see Mumu.

    Of course if you love Mumu now you just got to love his other 4 dogie
    companions which are Oser, Dharma, Zamkar and Gizmo! It is very fun to see them run, play, have fun and do almost everything together.
    What is more fun is of course playing with them your own self, I have played with them so many times and it never gets me bored.

    It shows that even our furry friends have a heart and a soul which means that we should treat them well just as we would treat a child.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and heartwarming Article on Mumu and his family!

    Love
    Jutika

    Wow mumu’s family is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Jessie is so cute compare the rest,though they all look alike.
    If we have compassion for dogs, instead of getting from pet stores, why don’t we adopt stray dogs. If you can’t afford to pay for a dog in the pet shop, just adopt some from the streets.
    For stray dogs it is harder for them to find food than those in pet stores because the pet shop owner will feed them.
    Thank you for sharing this amazing post, Rinpoche.

  21. beatrix ooi on Mar 14, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    The pictures are very heartwarming, Thank You for sharing Rinpoche. Mumu’s family must have missed him a lot, so nice to see them together again. Mumu’s sister- Gal Gal is so cutee! They sure look alike! They look like a cute and happy family!

  22. Edward ooi on Aug 21, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, all of them are too cuteeeeeee! It will be so fun if I could join them. The other day when me and my sister went to Wow Wow Pets Shop, I saw Mumu’s father Smokey, Mumu’s sister Gal-Gal and a few other dogs. But Smokey and Gal-Gal wasn’t allow to come out. I’m not sure why.

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche

    In Malaysia we are blessed with a government that allows us religious freedom and for that I am thankful. So the Dorje Shugden issue should not be brought to Malaysia and Malaysian Buddhists have the right to explore the practice of Dorje Shugden without interference from any outside governments or outside religious authorities.

    In the Gelug Monasteries debate is an integral part of learning, retaining and understanding the Buddha’s teachings. So I laid out three possible debate scenarios for you. Therefore whatever is in the questions and in the answers is not definite but it is just thoughts I had. I would like all of you to read through it carefully and not be offended by what I say because no matter what I say, I still have the deepest respect for the Dalai Lama and my faith is unwavering in him, my teachers, my practice and my protector.

    你不享受宗教自由吗?你喜欢因为你的信仰被另一些人标签为恶劣的而被禁止上学、被迫与你的朋友和亲人隔开、不被允许经商吗?我们可以争吵至湿婆、梵天和毗湿奴毁坏、重建再保留宇宙几百次,即使是这样,我们也不会争出个胜负、对错来。事实是:我们每一个人都有权接受平等的对待,没有人应该面对基于自己的宗教信仰而被某些条例和规则所束缚的不公。无论我们的信仰是否被接受,或是否被视为正统的,说到底我们还是凡人一个。我们都需要食物、关爱、慈悲的对待,更值得拥有不可剥夺、与生俱来的权利,好比说选择的自由。不管是世俗或是宗教的领袖都不应从我们身上剥夺此权利。

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

    Bradley Kassian: Might interest a few people here. It’s amazing what can pop up on youtube these days. This initiation of Dorje Shugden was conferred in Los Angeles in the 1980s onto Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s own students in Thubten Dhargye Ling. Prior to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche giving the advice, Geshe-la formally requested Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to give an initiation of Dorje Shugden. Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen was a very strong and devoted practitioner of Dorje Shugden and you can hear Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s voice at the beginning of the video. After the formal request was made, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche himself, who is the overlord of all tantric mandalas, gave the profound initiation of Dorje Shugden to Geshe-la and all his disciples. And thereafter, Geshe-la and all his students practiced Dorje Shugden very strongly and very devotedly until the ban. : http://youtu.be/f6KuCPKDuCI

    Now I understand, spirituality is NEVER about how great my practice, my Guru, my lineage are. Spirituality is NOT a competition of I am better than you or I am the best, spirituality is NEVER about right or wrong, higher or lower, bad or good. All these are what make us bitter and unhappy, and are the reasons why we came to seek spirituality because we know deep down inside we should be someone with a more opened heart that accepts and tolerates. Why putting ourselves back to the bitter situation again when we are in spiritual?

    Then what is spirituality? From Tsem Rinpoche’s actions and teachings, I know loyalty IS spirituality. Humble, tolerance, respect, understanding, keeping promises and being kind are spirituality no matter what you practice, no matter what is your religion/belief. All the qualities above have nothing to do with what your religion/belief are, but how you act, speak and think determine if you are a spiritual person.

    Those who don’t like Dorje Shugden, why keep condemning people over and over? Why speaks against it over and over? If you think you going to stop people from getting ‘harm’ because Dorje Shugden is bad, your intention is to stop harm, but why end up you actually CREATING HARM everytime you speak against Dorje Shugden and put those who practice it down??? If your intention is pure and kind, then the results should be pure and kind too, but obviously you are hurting people’s belief and emotions, and you show no respect to people.

    Buddhism is about following the true lineage passed down from Buddha Shakyamuni to his disciples and i personally find that Buddhist teachings are very logical hence i continue to learn and practice it by following my Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. If Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector practices by high lamas such as Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche and passed down to Tsem Rinpoche, how can they be doing the wrong practice? After all, Dorje Shugden is an “Enlightened Protector” and not just any normal worldly protector. Enlightened protector are suppose to help excel our Dharma practice and help us clear away our Dharma obstacles in this degenerate age. Logically speaking, then how can an enlightened protector bring harm to us or even help us to harm others? Also how can an enlightened being harm another enlightened being? That is illogical.Each of us bring with us imprints from previous lives and for some of us, we do have strong affinity with Dorje Shugden due to our practices from previous lives. I personally feel that i have a very strong affinity with Dorje Shugden protector and if it’s good enough for my Lama and his root Gurus and other high lamas to practice it, i think i can safely practice it without any doubt and at the same time still respect H.H. Dalai Lama. Thank you Rinpoche for speaking up.

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.

This is my special thangka I had commissioned. It is my guru H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche with Vajra Yogini and Dorje Shugden emanating  from His heart. He is the master of all mandalas and emanations. I will reproduce this thangka for the world to invite home. Tsem Rinpoche

In the monasteries we debate out issues for a logical conclusion. I have laid out three possible scenarios regarding: CAN TIBETAN LAMAS MAKE MISTAKES? Please take a look and let me know what you think: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57528

Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one 'enemy' and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

Uncle Lai for years now without a miss comes in once a week to clean the altar of the ladrang. To clean the sacred spots where holy images reside is considered good purification of karmas. He never misses this and then upon completion he makes nice fresh offerings. Uncle Lai is generally a very kind and reliable person. We all love him. Tsem Rinpoche

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.
