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.

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

    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.

  10. 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.

  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.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:41 am

    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.

  16. chia on Jul 10, 2010 at 2:33 am

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

    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.

    Dear Chuah Su Ming,
    You are naturally a kind person. You can think deeply and give yourself to those around you. You are super intelligent with high IQ and EQ..rare combination. I didn’t teach you anything about kindness. It was in you already. You are naturally caring, naturally responsible and naturally a loyal person. Anyone who has the good fortune to be your friend will find a true friend in you. Even when people play mind games with you, you are forgiving and let it be. You have a huge capacity to forgive beyond ordinary mortals. You always give people a chance and focus on their strong points.

    You never ask anything from people for yourself. You have contributed to the growth of dharma, the benefits of those around you very much. You always take care of those around you without ever showing anything but true love. I’ve witnessed this again and again. You are a very good representative of kindness, strong woman, good human being, good Buddhist and excellent example of a Kechara member.

    You have benefitted me and my life very much beyond a doubt. I often reflect on so much you have done and I am indebted to you. I mean every word.

    You are one of the best persons I have met in my whole life. I am very honored to have you as a friend, family and student. I wish to have a pure and good relationship with you for the rest of my life. Gold like you must be kept. Not easy to find solid gold among the rocks. In you I can trust and believe in you, because we are living in a world that trusting others is a difficult thing to do. Whenever I think of you, only warm and grateful thoughts arise in my mind.

    Thank you for really absorbing the dharma within your being because dharma just made you even more beautiful than you already naturally are. You are a stunning person because you choose to care about others. You have genuine compassion with action coupled with results. You are always results orientated and very good example to those around you.

    You have my good wishes, loyalty, care and genuine love. Much respects and fondly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Ullambana is also a very time to repay the kindness of the Three Jewels, one of which is robes offering to the sangha.

    The sangha’s robes represent the vows & commitment held by an ordained person. It is also one of the 4 main necessities of the sangha. By making this offering, you create the causes to continue the growth of the sangha who in turn remain to spread the dharma – the highest form of giving to all.

    During prayers, we can cry, get angry, lusty, sleepy, happy, unhappy and all that. It is expected. It is emotions coming out. It is not good and bad. As you advance during practice/mediation and sadhanas, all emotions will be purified..until then keep tissues nearby…LOL ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    READ CAREFULLY PLEASE—Smoking is a pollutant. It blocks our channels, winds and chakras. Just like in acupuncture, it is mean to unblock. So if we go for acupuncture to unblock the channels so the winds can flow and we be healthy in mind and body, why block it with alcohol again…we waste our efforts. Why block it with dirty smoke (smoking). So when we smoke and drink, we keep re-blocking what we unblocked by reciting mantras. So why block, unblock, block again and unblock. It’s like a dog chasing it’s own tail. So when we keep blocking, we become unclear in thinking, attracted to vice, become angrier and our negative emotions become stronger. One negative emotions leads to another and then we abandon the dharma. Drinkers find it hard to practice meditation for example. Tsem Rinpoche

    Ulambana Festival 2014: Remembering Our Dearly Departed 20 June 2014 – 9:15pm -Kechara House will be holding an Ullambana prayer session in conjunction with the Chinese Lunar 7th Month Hungry Ghost Festival on 4th and 6th August 2014.

    The Sanskrit word Ullambana can be loosely translated as “hanging upside down and suffering” and it refers to a festival to honour one’s ancestors and relieve the suffering of our dearly departed. In keeping with our previous years’ prayers, we will be conducting a Setrap Puja. Setrap, an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha in a wrathful form, is especially helpful in removing obstacles for those who are recently deceased to take a swift and fortunate rebirth. Setrap can also relieve the suffering of those who have already taken rebirth. And it is through the dedication of merits generated from the puja we are able to benefit our loved ones both living and deceased, wherever they are.

    Event Details Date: Monday, 4th August 2014 (English) Wednesday, 6th August 2014 (Chinese) Time: 7.30pm – 10pm Venue: Kechara House Gompa Special Ullambana offerings and dedications are also available from 2pm – 7pm on the following days: 29 July – 1 August 4 August – 8 August
    Show your love and care for those who have passed on and even for those that remain with us, through Buddha Shakyamuni’s compassion. Offer a tablet and candle for only RM50. For more information or to reserve your place, please contact us at 03 7803 3908, at care@kechara.com or visit us in person at Kechara House.

    Dana is an act of generosity, intended to develop selflessness and overcome greed and desires. Although dana commonly refers to the offering of a meal, it can also refer to an offering of other basic necessities to a monk or a nun.

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 one of the best Avalokitesvara thangkas I have ever seen. I rarely see an Avalokitesvara that draws me or I really like. I am very particular about thangka paintings. But this one is really done by a super skilled artist. The eyes are perfect and the gaze is the correct angle of calm/contemplativeness. The lips, nose and proportions are stunning. The coloring and feel is regality and serenity with great compassion. He feels alive. I would love to get a copy of this very much. Tsem Rinpoche

Look at this massive thangka of the Lord of Wisdom Manjushri in Tibet. The bigger the thangka it is believed, the more blessed the area will be. See all the people congregated around it to pay homage and make offerings. Amazing. May you all be blessed by this too and be connected to Manjushri. Tsem Rinpoche

This is so true. When teach dharma to some and ask them to change or explain why, they reject and become unhappy and speak ill.

People from different parts of the world who have no prior obvious connections can connect to do dharma together. This is wonderful because what we did in the past together can manifest in the present again to continue where we left off. Tsem Rinpoche

Having a healthy strong body is important so we can take care of the people and animals around us, to do our dharma practice and to be able to contribute to society. Practices like Je Tsongkapa and Amitayus are very helpful for extending our life energies and healing from within. I spoke about it: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=29398

Mr. Lai, the proud dad of Pastor David Lai. Mr. Lai has expressed how proud he is of his son and what he is doing for others. Mr. Lai is very happy his son David is a Pastor of Kechara and rejoices in the Dharma shared with others. Mr. Lai himself is a very kind and steady person and an important member of Kechara also who always keeps his promises. Many in Kechara respect and love Mr. Lai. Like father like son. Kind people.

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

Dear friends, Did you know there are three holy mountains of Avalokitesvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani in Yating, Kham -Tibet??!! It's not that difficult to get to either. I have just finished blogging about this. I watched a travelogue earlier and was AMAZED at the footage they showed of certain holy places in Tibet that I have heard of from senior monks but never seen. You MUST watch this excellent travelogue and enjoy. Tsem Rinpoche See here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=50824

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

I totally agree with this. Some vent out their anger, get attention or want to send messages to people and justify by saying it's their space their posting on and they can post what they want. Be it so, your space is seen my hundreds and it's public domain and you know that. So if others post otherwise to your views, why get upset? You invited it. Maybe that is what you wanted? Attention?

Another must read and must have book. I ordered it last week and it arrived today. So very much looking forward to reading/studying it. Dharma knowledge is something that should not remain stagnant. We must improve and apply upon it always. Applying it is the secret. I have so much more to learn. 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.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Very touching video...Buddha said it was very important to visit the four holy places associated with Him before our deaths. Remembering this, I had instructed Paul to take this senior group to Bodhgaya and make sure they are able to plant imprints. When this life of 'fun', money, parties and socials are over, we cannot leave empty handed. Tsem Rinpoche

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute. He gets nice food and sunshine daily and also we play monks chanting for him to be blessed. We love you Aki. Tsem Rinpoche

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche
