3 Million Dollars!

Dear passionate people and or friends around the world,

Having money does make things easier. But it’s not impossible to achieve our goals without money. There are people with money and achieve nothing also.  The secret is to start doing it whether you have money or not. If you don’t have money, start small scale and talk about it on social media. Exposure helps as you don’t know what kind hearted person is watching. If you start, and you keep doing it, you never know if someone may come along and help you or somehow you find the help yourself. Sometimes we ourselves find a way or sometimes someone comes along and helps us. We don’t know. But if we are afraid to start, then we will never find help. There is no failure if we keep trying because it’s all a learning process. Money can’t help us learn. In fact money can stop us from learning sometimes. So don’t lament about lack of money, but replace that with will power, hard work, consistency and focus. Some of the most successful people in the world started out with no money. Some of the most successful people in the world also died without much money, but the benefit and impact they had during and after their lives, touched millions.  Money is not the key. But the drive to do something and go all the way with it is the key! After all, there is no failure because by doing nothing we failed already so why be afraid of something that we are already ‘doing’? By trying, we only work towards success! 🙂

Please read this story and rejoice as I did. 

Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche

Man leaves $3M to start animal shelter in Champaign County

By Kate Norman

URBANA — An Urbana resident who passed away in December left his $3 million estate to establish an Animal Welfare League in Champaign County.

David Robert Wetzell, known as “Bob,” left specific guidelines in his will for establishing the shelter, which will be modeled after the Animal Welfare League of Clark County in Springfield, said Ronald Tompkins, executor of Wetzell’s estate.

Wetzell left instructions in his will for Tompkins to sell his assets and use the money to establish the shelter and purchase a secluded farm in Champaign County. It is to be used as an animal preserve, pet cemetery, dog training facility and rehabilitation home for unwanted pets. Tompkins said he will file soon file inventory on Wetzell’s assets, which he estimated to be valued at $3 million.

Wetzell left no family behind when he passed away Dec. 6, 2014, at the age of 80, except for a few cousins who life far away, Tompkins said. He described Wetzell was a devoted pet owner and animal lover.

“He thought about it and that was something that was greatly on his mind,” he said.

This project will be a big undertaking, said Libby Adams, who runs Clark County’s Animal Welfare League with her husband, Ray.

The shelter, based in Springfield, was started in 1959 and is run by a board of 12 members. The shelter currently houses around 45 dogs and 90 cats.

“I know it will take a while to build up to what we have,” she said. “It’s not going to happen overnight. Ours took a few years to get to what we have now.”

Tompkins said he is seeking candidates to establish an initial board of five members and will help it through the legal process of getting established as a non-profit organization. Once the board is set up according to Wetzell’s instructions and is legally constituted, Tompkins said it will become self-operating.

The board will comprise of five members who are Champaign County residents and members of the Springfield Animal Welfare League, according to Wetzell’s instructions. Tompkins said he will recommend that the board follow the Springfield model and go up to 12 board members once the initial five members have things running smoothly.

Tompkins also said he spoke to Barely Used Pets Inc., a dog rescue in Urbana, about the possibility of cooperating or merging, if it’s deemed appropriate. But he added that ultimately it will be up to the board, once it is constituted, as to how it wants to continue.

Cecelia Walter, who started PAWS Animal Shelter in Urbana and had known Wetzell since high school, said she thinks he wasted his money.

“I liked Bob tremendously, but I don’t think this is the best decision,” Walter said.

She said the money would have been put to better use if Wetzell had donated it to the Animal Welfare League in Springfield rather than setting up a new shelter. A lot of the money will go toward expenses for organizing the program, things that aren’t helping the animals, Walter said.

“I’m sorry he did it the way he did,” she said. “What he wanted to do, and how he set it up, I don’t think it clicks.”

Adams spoke fondly of Wetzell and his love for animals.

“Bob was very fond and proud of our organization,” Adams said. “He would come down on occasion. He was a member of our league for as long as I can remember and supported us.”

Wetzell left behind a dog, six cats, seven chickens and a 20-year-old parakeet. Tompkins said he kept the dog, Blondie, and found homes for the other animals.

Adams said Wetzell often told her his dream was to start a kennel like the one in Springfield. And she wanted him to get it started while he was still living.

“He didn’t quite know how to go about it, so I hope this guy will get that done,” she said. “Good luck to Mr. Tompkins.”

Tompkins said he is still looking for people to get involved in the new shelter. He said anyone who was a member of the Springfield Animal Welfare League as of Dec. 1,2014, and is a current Champaign County resident, will receive a priority seat on the board.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring article.Not many people will be able to do what Mr. Wetzell did.saving money till the very end to help the welfare of animals.He left $3M to start animal shelter in Champaign County.That’s wonderful, hopefully more people will follow him.A good advice from Rinpoche….. There are people with money and achieve nothing also. The secret is to start doing it whether you have money or not. . There is no failure if we keep trying because it’s all a learning process,
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    We should always start what we believe and is passionate about. Because as Rinpoche says by starting we have 50% of success, by not starting we have 100% of failing.

  3. Edward Ooi on Apr 10, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    In my opinion, it is really great to see things like this happening more and more, especially in these couple of years. People treating animals just as how they would treat their own children. It is certainly heartwarming to see this. Many people always think that life must be about having a relationship, have kids and live rich. But how many of them would actually prefer having a pet as a family member? I believe there is a lot of them nowadays, you don’t always have to worry about them, train them properly with love and care and they will follow pretty much everything you ask for. Isn’t it just amazing? Hahahahaha

    If I would want to get a pet, I would definitely adopt. There are bunch of unwanted pets at animal shelters, if you’re looking for an adorable puppy or kitten, fear not. Animal shelters always have plenty of puppies and kittens waiting to be adopted. Buying pets from pet stores is only going to encourage breeders to breed more, and many pet breeders don’t actually take good care of the pets. Every year, hundreds and thousands of pets are left behind on the streets, no shelter, no need, no love. The lucky ones are either adopted or brought into animal shelters, the unlucky ones usually live on the streets through harsh environments, mistreated by passerby, some are being road killed, some died due to disease, lack of food and etc. The worst part is that most animal shelters do not earn money, they usually rely on sponsors and the numbers of pets will only increase. But if everyone stops buying animals from pet stores and start adopting, we will definitely be able to relieve the stress of shelter owners and animals will have better conditions to live in.

    Charitable legacies are the foundation for many good causes and are vital in continuing their work. This is especially true when it comes to charitables that help animals.

    It’s a common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die. We can make a difference too by setting aside a small sum in our will, or setting aside a small amount monthly to donate to them. If we do not have a lot of money, local animal shelters are usually in need of materials and resources to take care of the animals, or sometimes just extra pair of hands.

    Animal welfare charities do a spectrum of work, from wildlife conservation, to providing shelter for the abused/abandoned, sponsoring spaying/neutering, to lobbying for anti-cruelty legislation. Many have worked very hard to protect pets, farm animals and wild animals from abuse and neglect.

    Well, I guess leaving money for animal charities is better than leaving money for just our pets, as this amount takes care of and helps so many more beings. I read that Oprah Winfrey’s pet dogs stand to inherit £30 million at her death!

  5. Sarah on Mar 3, 2016 at 8:45 pm

    I agree with Rinpoche that the secret is to start doing it whether we have money or not. We can start small with what we have and create the causes to grow and be successful. With sincerity, hard work, perseverance, and the wish to benefit others, our work will bear fruit. Who knows, one day, somebody might come along and help us. But we should not wait for this day to come. What is important is to continue to help others.

  6. Beatrix Ooi on Mar 1, 2016 at 11:35 am

    I rejoice upon reading Mr Wetzel’s good deed, it is very rare to find people who truly care about animals nowadays. He is setting up such a good example for those people around him and even to us, the younger generation who are still learning and exercising the moral ethics in life.

    He is truly an inspiration, he could have used all the money he had on fun, drinking, traveling while he was alive, but instead he saved all his money in order to take care of the animals that nobody wanted. There’s a lot of people who claim to be animal lovers but very few prove their words with actions. As cliche as it may sound, actions speak louder than words and I’m truly inspired by Mr Wetzel.

    Terraforming Project is a good undertaking for the rich.

  8. Lucas Roth on Feb 28, 2016 at 10:08 pm

    I want to have a big impact for animals when my time passes too. Even though this kind and compassionate man has beaten me to it, I want to have an impact for animals to be good and big. Animals are not treated well by most people so that is the least I can do, one person that cares is better than none.

    I have learned compassion for animals, I have become a vegetarian, I care for animals. This is because of what I learned from my guru, he taught me that they are alive too and they feel too. They don’t want to die, they don’t want to be hurt. They are like us so they deserve proper meals, a home and a proper life. They deserve what we have because we are all earthlings, we are all lifeforms.

    I pay respect to the man that passed and I say good job to him. I also hope the people there look after the animals well.

  9. Lin Mun on Feb 27, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is interesting to know that Bob who has a very compassionate heart to donate all his assets worth 3 million to set up an Animal Welfare League.

    His contribution will definitely benefit and help so many animals. I hope the board committee will set up soon so they can take action and estabilish the welfare league.

    Also thank you Rinpoche for your reminder “…there is no failure because by doing nothing we failed already so why be afraid of something that we are already ‘doing’? By trying, we only work towards success!” I will always remind myself and keep trying and working hard.

    Thank you.

  10. Jace Chong on Feb 26, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the interesting article.

    When there’s a will, there’s a way. In this case, it’s the last will of Bob is to spend 3 millions for the benefit of the animals after he passed away. This is a great way to leave a legacy behind that continue his mission to benefit animals while he was alive.

    I am very glad to read that there are getting more animal shelters in the world, and the supports and resources are getting more for those who cannot speak for their own rights — the animals.

    I remember Rinpoche said before that animals can’t say “thank you” to us, so helping animals is something that without personal agenda that expect something back from them. Seeing all these animal shelters and rescue works, it’s a sign that more people are practicing selflessness, that take other’s life more than their own.

    This is so heartwarming and I hope there are more stories like this happen everyday 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    This is an interesting article. I applaud Bob’s will in leaving his money of the amount US$3mn to the setting up of a separate animal shelter. It may be of personal preference whether good or bad, but it is certainly for good cause. I hope that the setting up of it and the running of the operations will be in good hands so that Bob’s US$3mn will benefit those who he intended to. Thank you, Bob. I shall take this opportunity to say a little prayer for you, may you have a good rebirth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the message; money should not be the excuse for us not to do something / start doing something.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is so amazing story of unconditional love Bob provided with to the animals. How inspiring that he left his property worth of $3 million only for the animal welfare.
    It is heart warming and wish I could do like him in the near future._()_

  13. Chris Chong on Feb 26, 2016 at 12:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article.

    Bob is indeed a man with a big heart for animals. Being a man with no family and only pets, he must had been very kind and very close to his pets which are family to him. His compassion for animals had drove him to plan his will to benefit his pets as well as other animals.

    Bob is indeed a compassionate animal lover. However, what made me ponder is that why he had to wait until he passed away to make a move on his dreams? He had lived to a ripe age of 80 with no family around, and there is a chance that he could had completed his dream way earlier than he hit 80 if he had started to work on the project early.

    I have learnt from this article that we have to move fast and treasure the time we have left. Human life is short, so we need to stop wasting time and do whatever that means the most to us. If we keep procrastinating, we might end up dead before we even started working on our goals and dreams.

    Humbly,
    Chris

  14. Jason on Feb 25, 2016 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing. “It is much better to try and fail than not to try at all, because in trying we already won”~extracted from 108ways to grab my apples. The money left by Wetzell must be allocate to a fund foundation .
    Cecilia Walter statement on Wetzell is wasting money on setting up new animal shelter will not stop Tompkins from carry on this project . In my point of view , the most important we do good things is base on our good motivation and the outcome failure or success is not so important. In this worlds, not everythings we did will success but take it as a lesson for our future .

    时常都会听到有人提起“钱不是万能的,但没钱就万万不能。”一般人的想法是,要努力的打拼来满足物质的需求。而其实大多数人会如此的拼命追求,难道这不是一种信仰吗?因为他们会相信当他们得到这些物质上的保障之后,幸福就会随着而来。

    其实,如果再想深一层,当一个人死亡之后,世界上任何财产、名利都带不走,只有业报随身。而我们真正可以带走的,也只是我们的慈悲心、智慧心和功德。

    感谢仁波切分享此博文,让我钦佩 Wetzell 先生所做的决定之外,也从此博文得到不一般的启发如下:
    1. 做好准备
    Wetzell 先生清楚的明白到他往生之年,他是带不走任何财产。因此,他预先立下遗嘱,吩咐Tompkins出售他所有名下的财产然后用此金钱来设立动物的庇护所和农场。

    2. Wetzell 先生的慈悲心
    Wetzell 先生一直以来对动物有爱心的老人家。在他往生时,他也留下了一只狗,六只猫,七只鸡和一只活了二十年的鹦鹉。

    3. 选择设立新的动物的庇护所和农场的用意
    Wetzell 先生选择了将所有的财产来设立新的动物的庇护所和农场。本人大胆的推断Wetzell 先生有此决定是希望可以帮助更多的动物。而Wetzell 先生不选择将此可观的财产捐赠予其他动物福利的机构,就如Cecelia Walter所说的那些机构可能会用此捐款来缴还其他的费用,而这间接的帮不到更多的动物。

  16. Edwin Tan on Feb 24, 2016 at 11:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for such an insightful article.

    Though it is questionable to how Bob uses his money to save animals..the act of doing through Tompkins is highly commendable. He is a good example of someone leaving a “legacy” behind.

    I truly believe setting up the shelter will benefit the animals at the county. As Rinpoche wrote.. It is not a matter of trying and fail.. It is a matter of not even trying.

    Thank you.

    Money can buy convenience and the necessities in life. Money in this case can provide hope and some comfort for animals. It can also educate others the importance of animal welfare.

    The work of Animal Welfare League inspired Wetzell to donate all his wealth to start a new animal shelter. If we are focused and determined with our projects, it will rub off on to others. Although the money wasn’t donated to the existing animal shelter, starting a new shelter will help more animals.

    So it’s good news for the animals.

    Malaysia has visitors from all over the world as our country here is beautiful, peaceful and diverse. I am fortunate to be in Malaysia with wonderful friends here too. So many people from all over the world visit our Kechara stalls, outlets and Kechara Forest Retreat in Malaysia. They really are happy to invite Dorje Shugden home with them along with his prayers, photo, poster, mantra and information booklet. Many of them return and or contact to tell us their wishes has been fulfilled when they sincerely pray to World Peace Buddha protector Dorje Shugden. It makes me so happy to benefit others.

    Today, the practical applications of Einstein’s theories include the development of the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD-players. Recognized as TIME magazine’s “Person of the Century” in 1999, Einstein’s intellect, coupled his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership. So was his passion for Buddhism and its teachings. Today we present you Einstein’s world famous quotes on Buddhism that will be of a great value to understand how much the Buddhism was close to Einstein’s heart.

    An Introduction To The Buddha Form And Iconography

    In this book, Tsem Rinpoche introduces us to a rich range of Buddha forms, providing basic information to kindle our interest in the iconography of statues –their postures, gestures and mudras, the ornaments and the implements they hold. Each one of these is a symbolic teaching in itself. Indeed the entire iconography, colour and pose of each Buddha statue combined presents a path to ultimate enlightenment.

    Everyone wants to be happy in life. Everyone wants to achieve happiness. For an athlete, for instance, his idea of ultimate happiness is to win a gold medal in the Olympics.

    For the glory of a gold medal and a few minutes on the podium with your national flag going up while they play your national anthem, you deprive yourself of the pleasure of nightlife, relationships, fun, going out with friends or even your partner. You will subject yourself to a special and stringent diet, train eight hours a day, sleep early and not stay up. You will stay away from friends and curtail many activities because you have to train and work hard. You have to push and discipline yourself.

    You really have to transform yourself and change your schedule in order to get your body ready in the next four to eight years in the hope that when the day of the Olympics arrives you will be selected to participate.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and motivating article. People can say many things about us but we will know very well how we are and how we are. We should not react to the comments people make on us.

    However, I do agree that we have to contemplate on what people say about us. If what they say about us is true, especially our bad qualities, we have to change. If it is not true, we just have to move on and ignore the comments.

    In “Compassion Conquers All”, Tsem Rinpoche shows how through the practice of “The Eight Verses of Mind Transformation”, this wish for others to be happy can engender a state of mind of supreme love, compassion and altruism. This is the mind of Bodhicitta that wishes every sentient being to be free from every suffering and to enjoy real lasting happiness, and is determined to realise this wish by achieving the state of mind of real ultimate happiness and peace (that is free from every suffering) first, and then helping all beings attain it. This state of mind of ultimate peace and real lasting happiness is called Enlightenment or Full Awakening, where one achieves the qualities of omniscience, love and ability so as to have the power and ability to help others reach this same state.

    John Eaton Calthorpe Blofeld (John Blofeld) (1913 – 1987) was a renowned writer of Chinese culture, Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and Mahayana Buddhist tradition. His literary endeavours had helped in introducing Buddhism to the Western world and inspired many to follow his path on the journey of spiritual discoveries.

    During his lifetime, John Blofeld had travelled widely around China and other countries, visited sacred mountains and monasteries, and met with hermits, sages and great Buddhist masters of various traditions. As his popularity grew, he used his fame to inspire younger writers to follow his path and helped to launch their career by writing forewords or providing constructive feedback to their maiden literary effort. Those who had the privilege to be acquainted with this extraordinary man, remembered his generosity, warmth, and sincerity. Even today, his writing and unique experiences continue to inspire others to the path of spirituality and give insight to the world of China when the refined Chinese civilisation was omnipresent

    Following our habituated way of thinking, the source of whatever happiness we seek from marriage appears to be the picture of an ideal partner. In fact, even as we embark on a long-term relationship with our partners, we already have expectations and projections on our partner. We expect to be happy when our partner conforms to our own set of norms, way of thinking, and expectations. In order to correct this mistaken view, we need to look deeply into ourselves and see that happiness does not come from holding mistaken projections and expectations. In fact, when these expectations and projections are unfulfilled, they are likely to cause us disappointment, pain, and anguish instead.

    Tsarchen Losal Gyatso (1502 – 1566 CE) was a famous master and the founder of the Tsarpa lineage of the Sakya tradition centred at Dar Drangmoche Monastery in the central Tsang province of Tibet.

    The great Tsarchen Losal Gyatso is the 21st lineage holder of the Vajrayogini tantric tradition stemming from the Mahasiddha Naropa himself. In fact, by engaging in Vajrayogini as his main practice, Tsarchen Losal Gyatso gained high realisations and went on to have several important visionary experiences associated with her. Due to his high realisations, Tsarchen also beheld pure visions of Padmasambhava, Vajrayogini, Chakrasamvara, Kalachakra, Yamantaka, other tantric deities and masters.

    This is a very interesting article to know that Mongolian astrology is closely related to Buddhism. Some of us might think astrology is a very superstitious practice but it is practised in Buddhism.

    From the scripture, our body body parts are related to different planets. In a way, it means our body and the universe are in fact one. Therefore, we should respect our environment because if our mother nature has lost its balance, our health will be affected as well.

    The most recent celebrity that was reported to have shown some interest in Buddhism is Katy Perry. People often think being a celebrity is wonderful, but behind all the smiles and the beauty, there is much suffering and pain… We have seen it many times, and celebrities who fail to cope with the stress and public pressure often take up dangerous habits or suicidal. I’m not claiming that I know of Katy Perry’s life and difficulties, but as long as we are all in samsara, we are all subjected to suffering.

    The International Mountain Museum (IMM) in Pokhara, Nepal isq all about the 14 highest mountains in the world…all of them are at least 8,000 meters in height! Those interested in mountaineering would come to Pokhara as most of the trekking routes start from there.

    Out of the top 14 mountains, 8 are within Nepal! Since 1920 (when mountaineering was still new to the world) many researchers would come to this beautiful country to do research on things like how the mountains were formed…what the exact height of the mountain is…what minerals can be found there etc.

    Malaysia adopts a constitutional monarchy system that is a mixture of hereditary and elected monarchs. Malaysia consists of several administrative regions across thirteen states and three federal territories. Nine states are ruled by monarchs, four states are supervised by a Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor, and the Federal Government controls the remaining three federal territories.

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

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss 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
