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.

    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.

  2. 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!

    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.

    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!

    I absolutely adore animals! Please, we need more posts like this from you!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

  11. 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!!!

  12. 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.

  13. Joy Kam on Jul 6, 2010 at 7:08 am

    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.

  14. ckliew-james on Jul 6, 2010 at 3:03 am

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    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.

    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 ->

    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.

  19. Chelle on Jul 1, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    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.

  20. 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.

  21. Ashlee Tam on Jun 23, 2010 at 9:09 pm

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

    Good things do come in small packages.

    “A few years ago I came up with the idea of scanning Dharma texts into soft copy and duplicating them into thumb drives. We were already filling up statues with holy mantras that are rolled and sealed individually …..I thought, “Why not duplicate these mantras into thumb drives and insert those into statues as well?” What I didn’t expect was that we could duplicate books of Dharma texts into the millions, let alone billions!”
    - H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche

    Today, these thumb drives that contain trillions of mantras, holy images and prayers are now available for you to start your own DIY mantra insertion project.

    Dear students and friends,

    I came across this article on CNN and thought that I should share it with all of my blog readers. The article is on 10 of the best meditation retreats in the world!

    When I read it, I couldn’t help but think that it’s very much how I would like Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to be. A place where you can get away from the bustling crowd and heavy traffic in the city, and to find some peace, quiet and serenity away from it all.

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama promotes kindness, compassion, tolerance, harmony, especially dialogue and non-violence approach to difficult issues which has won Him the Nobel Peace prize.

    However, His stand on the Dorje Shugden practise is a highly controversial one. He has gone to the extend to dispel Dorje Shugden monks which is a total contradiction with what He promotes globally.

    Human beings has different mind that requires different religious practises. Hence the various religions on earth including the Dorje Shugden practise. For those of you who are new to this practise, you may like to viist for more information.

    On behalf of the Dorje Shugden practitioners, I would like to plea His Holiness for a chance to have dialogue and lift this unnecessary ban once and for all!

    There are just too many things we are unaware of, unheard of or unseen of. We have not venture into the deep ocean, forest or snow mountains and are mostly ignorant about the lives there. We have limited knowledge and receive only what the society wanted us to know not realising what we knew is just a handful of sand in the vast dessert. Sometimes we tell ourselves we have to see to believe, but the truth is whether we see it or not, vast variety of lives do exist. This video is another proof for Big Foot sceptics, once again strengthen the possibilities of lives beyond our limited understanding and beliefs.

    Saya memang terharu apabila melihat Rinpoche yang begitu mengambil berat terhadap pasukan penyelamat dan pasukan kawalan di Bentong pada malam tragedi itu. Rinpoche yang bersifat baik hari tanpa mengira warna kulit, agama, bahasa dan latar belakang setiap ahli dalam pasukan penyelamat dan pasukan kawalan. Justerunya, saya juga berasa amat bangga dengan pelajar-pelajar Rinpoche yang sanggup mengorbankan masa dan tenaga tanpa mengenal penat dan waktu dengan rela hati menghantar makanan dan minuman untuk pasukan penyelamat dan pengawal. Kita sepatutnya mencontohi tindakan Rinpoche dan pelajar-pelajar beliau iaitu sentiasa sedia menyediakan bantuan kepada pihak yang memerlukan. Di samping itu, kita perlulah saling menyayangi antara satu sama lain tanpa mengira agama, latar belakang dan warna kulit begitu juga dengan segala makhluk hidup di persekitaran kita. Akhirnya, kita sepatutnya peka terhadap apa yang berlaku di persekitaran kita agar keharmonian dapat kekal selama-lamanya.Bak kata pepatah “yang baik dijadikan teladan, yang buruk dijadikan sempadan”.

    A Little Change Can Save Another Life
    RM2 may not get us far these days but it will definitely transform the life of a bird that only knew the chaos inside dirty, overcrowded cages.

    A little CHANGE provides one nutritious and healthy meal of fresh vegetables, millet snacks and delicious seeds for a bird.

    A little CHANGE sets an example for our children to be caring, generous and kind.

    A little CHANGE preserves our humanity through helping those with no voice.

    These precious teachings from Dorje Shugden are sacred and clearly dharmic. No devil will ask us to practise the buddha dharma and be of benefits of others. Some of the points I have learned as follows:

    1. When we apply the teachings of our Guru, putting dharma into actions, logically we will produce positive results and see the positive transformation of our mind.

    2. Eight Worldly Dharmas bring us no where but continue to suffer. These eight practices led us to the wrong path, causing our mind to become unstable, bear no results from our practise.

    3. When we show respect to our Guru from our heart sincerely, we will be the cause for others to meet dharma through any Guru they have karmic relation with.

    4. Black Manjushri will have many powerful effects. It will stave off the curses that people send to us, including negative words, curses, negative gossip and talk, ill-wishes and jealousies etc.

    5. Consistent practice is the remedy for our broken vows, through retreats we purify. Only through continued dharma work with a good mind, constantly striving to break our comfort zones will we be of benefit to others through our work. All results come from us making all necessary efforts.

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

What Am I Writing Now


The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

I really wanted to share this incredible picture of the Tibetologist Alexandra David-Neel outside of her retreat cave in Tibet. She's one of the first non-Tibetans who penetrated Tibet to engage in the practice of Tibetan Buddhism.

If there is a blind man walking towards a well and he can fall in, whose fault is it if he falls in? This can be related back to those in dharma should act to guide others by example otherwise you let everyone fall into the well. If they do fall in samsara's well, whose fault is it? Have the courage, integrity and fortitude to practice dharma and bring dharma to others to help them.~ Tsem Rinpoche

Many times we hear great Vajra Yogini practitioners when cremated, their fire pyres appear in the form of Vajra Yogini. We hear this many times as a sign they went to Kechara Paradise, gained high realizations or enlightened by Vajra Yogini's path. Although this picture does not depict a funeral pyre of a great practitioner, but the fire looks curiously like Vajra Yogini. Enjoy and may all be blessed by Vajra Yogini. Tsem Rinpoche

When you work hard and produce results, everyone is silenced and those who make noise is just noise and society allows you some freedoms. You have to have the integrity to finish what you started and what you promised. Do it for others, those concerned and for yourself.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can work with me and we finish the dreams. You can leave citing any reasons you may have. You may join back again with me and my arms are open to you. Or you may go away as an enemy or remain friends. However you do I will accept. I dream big and work hard and sometimes it's hard for you, others and me, but if we finish, there is great satisfaction. Satisfaction doesn't come free. But one thing for sure, I will finish what I have started with or without you. Too many depend on it and many have hopes in it. We need to remember our words, our promises and our hopes we gave others and not shatter it. Sometimes we need to put our personal feelings aside and just get it done with a bang and be happy about it because in the end letting others down is not a way of life. Be kind, have integrity, don't make excuses, don't justify but just complete the works that make the dreams materialize and in the process you fulfill the dreams of many others. Others is always the key. Others and oneself are intertwined. Life is then fulfilled. That is life. Life is like that.~Tsem Rinpoche

Some people just work quietly in the background and do their best in their own way to benefit others. They don't say much but work super hard. I must say Pastor Dr. Lanse is one of them. She does not need attention, she does not complain and she does not ever create problems. She is independent and yet kind. She is our wonderful translator who works very hard to get translations of many dharma teachings into Chinese. This is just something short and sweet to let everyone know how much I appreciate Pastor Lanse and enjoy being with her work and her. Because of her and several other vital and lovely people, much practical dharma is in the Chinese speaking world. I thank Pastor Dr. Lanse from my heart. Tsem Rinpoche

Materialism is prevalent because the societal norms teaches people to be consumers at a young age. Buying things we don't need all to feed the ego. You can drive an expensive vehicle, but at the end of the day its still just a car. You can buy a flashy watch, but in reality all it does is tell time. People are more concerned with image and feeding their egos than being a beneficial person to society. Investing money on the outside to appear a certain way to others, yet forgetting to invest in yourself to becoming a better person. People spend their whole lives working to attain materialistic things using their accumulation of materialism to validate their existence, but when you die you can't take any of it with you. Don't let this system turn you into a vanity slave, realize you're worth much more than that. Feed your soul not your ego.-from Dr Asky (Powerful words of wisdom even from the secular point of view)

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche

30 November 2015 “If one does the recitation of the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga prayer for even one month using one of the visualizations for great or clear or quick wisdom, one will definitely see development of that wisdom. It is proved by experience. There is no doubt that by doing the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga practice one can meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings from life to life. And furthermore, it gives one the opportunity to be born in the pure realm of Lama Tsongkhapa, Tushita, whenever death happens.” - Pabongkha Rinpoche - Pastor Antoinette
