A very heartwarming story!

Dear friends,

This is a must read very short but heartarming story. It is incredible that beings we didn’t think can show gratitude are very capable of doing so. Beautiful story to share with kids and everyone. Enjoy this.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

This is her story of giving gratitude.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her… a very dangerous proposition.

One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you be so fortunate …

To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

    I love this story because of the moments when all the manmade divide between man and beast fell away.

    A diver-rescuer recalled that while he was working to cut the rope out of her mouth, “her eye was following him all the time”, and he said that after that experience, “he will never be the same again”.

    The beautiful and most heartwarming moment was when she danced her dance of joy around her rescuers who had saved her from certain and terribly anguishing death. She even went to each and nudged them with gratitude.

    She had the good fortune to be untangled from such a tangle. Yes, may we have even greater merit “to be surrounded by people who will untangle us from the things that are binding us” especially to this life.

    “May we always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude”.

    It is good and joyous to know that there are still many good-hearted and decent people out there in this world. So good to see that there are candles of hope in this darkness that surrounds and threatens us. :’) May everyone encounter scenarios like this that can change their hearts for the better. 🙂

  3. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 25, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    This did definitely be a beautiful moment to witness. Gratitude seemed to be a natural courtesy between animals ans not to mention human beings. So much have been reported how a lion shows his gratitude by hugging his saviour or how a dog would protects the family that have shown him love and kindness. We as human beings has just simply forgotten the simple gesture of saying words of appreciation or showing…gratitude towards those who has helped us or shown us kindness. We just simply being too occupied with work and especially being very attached to the idea of “There’s always next time”. Gratitude and kindness has to be shown on time and always spontaneously.

    Foot note, don’t be afraid to give help and don’t be forgetful of showing gratitude even if it’s a simple “Thanks” will make the day for others.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful account of a grateful whale.

    谢谢仁波切分享这动物与人类情的感人故事。在地球上人类被称为万物之灵,主宰了整个地球的生物。人类也往往为了自己的利益而伤害其他动物,可是我们也要知道其实动物们都有灵性。它们都有自已自由的生活, 但它们往往会掉入人类的陷进而失去生命。对它们来说,是很可悲的。在这里我们可看到连动物都会对人类有感恩之心,何况是我们被称为万物之灵的人类呢?
    人类呀!我们要好好反省!

    What an amazing story, man must stop killing these lovely and intelligent souls,pls people stop killing the whales and the lovely dolphins.

  8. Soon Huat on Jun 16, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and touching story with us. It seems like every creature has feeling and thinking no matter they are big or small. We always ignore this.

  9. yangchen on Apr 28, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    i am now aware that animals are capable of returning love if we give them a chance.

  10. Junior on Apr 28, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    This is a very touching story and it really did touch me very much.
    Thank You for sharing this wonderful article.

  11. June Tang (KHJB) on Apr 22, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    It is so heartwarming to see the whale was saved by kind hearted people.I wish more people can show the same kindness and compassion to all living especially animals,they deserved to live,love and care.Please be kind to animals !!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this touching story,it is wonderful story for us to comtemplate and share with our friends !!

  12. Felix Kong on Apr 19, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this touching story . They are brave and take risk to rescue this female humpback whale . Amazing thing is animal remember who save it life and will thanks to them. If we are to be kind to animals and sure animals are did the same things to us, don’t abuse animals , they have feeling too .

  13. Albert Ratchaga on Apr 16, 2013 at 4:16 am

    Receiving the love from an animal is the most beautiful thing, because you’ll know they are not fake or plotting something being good to you, they are absolutely genuine as they appreciate what we have done to them.

    Animals are very simple, when you good to them, they will give you their everything…

  14. So Kin Hoe on Apr 11, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a great and wonderful story to increase our compassion and care towards the animals that need our help. This story really makes us to think deeply that we should never pass by and ignore those animals which really need our help in their dying hours. Animals also have feelings, sadness, joy and able to show their gratitude to anyone who has free them from suffering whether in physically or emotionally state.

  15. wansan on Apr 11, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    This is really a heartwarming story. This has proven that animals have feelings just like us humans. So we should always treat them well. They CAN feel it. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story.

  16. Davin on Apr 11, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart warming story. It is amazing that the divers risk their lives to save the female humpback whale. When the whale is free she show gratitude and thanks to its savers. It is so touching. This show that animals have feeling too. Wish there were no more traps and nets and harm to animals.

  17. Joy on Apr 11, 2013 at 2:01 am

    I wonder when will humans live up to their name and be humane? All fishery should stop… we should just eat what we can grow and stop harming these beings. What right do we have to take their lives away?!

    Lucky there are a few kind humans out there who knows what it means to be humans and helped this humpback whale who are very intelligent beings. Sometimes I think more intelligent, kind and appreciative than humans! How many of us remembers and show gratitude to those that help us? Think….

    Thank you kind sailor and I hope for this good deed, it helps you to collect some good karma to change your fishing career.

  18. Lucas Roth on Apr 10, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    this is soooooo touching, people can always help animals and do not think that they forget because they remember and are very smart. i am so happy that the divers saved this poor whale and i hope the whalae has a long happy life from then. 😀

  19. AdelineTan on Apr 10, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    The entangled female humpback whale is very fortunate to have been spotted by a kind fisherman who radioed for help, when the rescued team arrived the brave divers risked their lives in order to save her. When she was untangled from the spider web she swam in joyous circles and then went to each and every diver to nudged them and pushed them gently as if to say thank you to them. This shows that all animals and creatures have feelings too. They can show their gratitude by their warm and gentle actions even though they are unable to speak. Therefore we must treat all animals with loving kindness and never harm them. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful and heartwarming story on the blog.

  20. tenzin llhamo on Apr 9, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    Wow! Its just beautiful and heartwarming to read stories like this everytime. And I believe that the whale sensed that the rescuers were there to help her and that is why she did not react violently. Those rescuers are really brave to risk their life to help the whale but they did it out of compassion for the distressed whale. They are inspiring examples of compassion and love….
    Yes… May we all be always surrounded by people that will help untangle us from our attachments…

  21. Cliff on Apr 9, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    What an inredible experience, wished i was part of the crew who helped rescue her. Must be truly an unforgettable experience receiving gratitude from a whale 50x the size of you. Its a real shame what humans do to fish for monry, in turn it is not only destroying the environment but also hurt innocent whales in the process. These humungous glorious creatures are something to admire, being their peaceful nature they do not deserve this sort of treatment of being hunted down by whalers. These mystical creatures are capable of thinking, compassion and show gratitude, I think that says that they too deserve the same rights as human beings. I really wish people would not support whalers or fish mongers trawling the sea. They are not only damaging the environment but they are also commiting a crime. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story Rinpoche. I hope you are well.

  22. David Lai on Apr 9, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Yes, this is really a beautiful tale and also one that is ominous of man’s slow but steady destruction of our world with our waste and wanton exploitation of animals and the environment. It is beautiful because there are a lot of people out there who still would care for animals with only a little small sign of gratitude.

    In other words, there’s really no returns for helping animals except the thought that we have done something good for the day. This is a good story to share with others because people and society today glorify self-gain and rampant expectation of taking and receiving benefit from others. It is stories like these that are slowly and quietly forming a revolution in people’s minds of the virtues of giving and especially giving without expectation. I love that message and I think that is what we all need to be reminded that we are such a person so that when our moment comes, we would take the selfless or less selfish step to benefit others.

  23. Wah Ying on Apr 9, 2013 at 10:58 am

    这故事太感人了。巨人的温柔,庞硕的鲸鱼,给你温柔的触碰,感谢救命之恩,很难想象……

    就像上师的温柔和贴心,对上师可以比你的伴侣更了解你,比父母更了解你,在适当的时候给你恰如其分的解药救你于病痛,拉你一把不让你掉入深渊,一巴掌把你打醒不至于继续沉溺下去……

    每天提醒自己:不要身在福中福中不知福,不要把关怀你的人推走……生命中,许许许多多人就像上师、父母、朋友和伴侣,特别是上师和法,把你从纠缠不清的牵绊中解脱,而不是捆住你……

  24. Jutika Lam on Apr 8, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    WOW!!! I am totally lost for words…. not just because this is such an amazing story but yet it also teaches people something.

    I am very grateful that the fisherman radioed for help rather than like a lot of people out there who would see something suffering and yet not care about it.

    The day these kind divers saved this wonderful and innocent creature from death it is also another sign that no matter where we are we should stop littering in to not just the oceans but also everywhere we go.

    Littering is one of those subjects that many many countries have been trying to curb and yet a lot of people still take the Earth for granted and just keep on littering.

    All the ropes and stuff that got tangled is 100% all of our human rubbish that we throw in to the ocean.

    Every day there are so many people or fishermen to be precise who would just go fishing and not bother to take their rubbish home and just throw it in to the seas.

    It is very sad to know that a lot of birds and fishes die because of our human rubbish everyday but at the same time a one in a million compassionate fisherman and a group of divers managed to save a Humpback Whale…. that last part is heartwarming.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the news!

    With Much Love
    Jutika

  25. Pavara on Apr 8, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    what a heartwarming story!

    It is very surprising that other people at sea did not want to harm the whale,but instead they cared about it and tried to save the whale. They were taking the risk of being killed by the slap of the tail of the whale when the rescuers took hours to free the whale from entangled traps and lines.I am glad to know that finally the whale was freed.

    It is very touching to note that the whale expressed her gratitude to all rescuers one by one after she was saved.

    Seeing this post makes me think twice about eating meat.

    All the divers were really kind to risk their lives to save the whale.

  26. justin cheah on Apr 8, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    It is very heart warming to see this. Kudos to the divers/rescuers who despite potential danger braved themselves to help free the poor whale. Moreover it is very beautiful that the whale have the sense of gratitude to give a thank you nudge gesture to every single rescuers when some of us so called human would not know the meaning of gratitude.

  27. uncle eddie on Apr 8, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    Who said that animals dont have a sense of gratitude and wisdom!!! A female humpback whale was entangled in a spiderweb and fishing lines; weighed down by hundreds of pounds of traps, though still stayed afloat. Spotted by a kind fisherman who radioed for help at Faralon islands. Everyone(divers) worked desperately and managed to free her. The whale was seen by divers swimming thereafter in joyous circles and then came back to each and every diver, nudged them as if thanking them! Could you imagine that!!!!!!!!

  28. Thierry on Apr 8, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Wow, I am trying to imagine such a large animal as a whale coming to me and giving me a friendly tap on the back from saving her life…. That must be such an incredible experience…
    Nothing feels better than helping others, taking trouble and worry away from them, giving them solace… That is probably all what we need…

  29. grace (KHJB) on Apr 8, 2013 at 9:49 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and glad that the whale was saved.It is true that we must always be gratitude toward people who have help us.We also have to do our best to help people when they are in need .

  30. Low KHJB on Apr 7, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.It is a truly heart warming story.May all those who assist in freeing the whale receive blessing for their good deed 100 fold as they did it out of compassion and without any agender. I could imagine the feelings, the divers felt when the huge whale came back to show appreciation towards them being so mindful and gentle as they never expected this from the largest mammal on earth.
    May we be the one with the merit ,receiving the joy of making the choice of giving and not be the one demanding or receiving .

  31. edward ooi on Apr 7, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    This shows us that animals can response to human kindness. If you love animals, they will love you back (except the ones which have rabies). I will share this touching article on my facebook status and ask my friends to share it out too. I love animals very very much. My ambition is to become a veterinarian.

  32. Sharon Saw on Apr 7, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story. It really did touch me very much but also saddened me that this incident happened in the first place because of man’s greed. These commercial fishing nets cause so much harm to other fish in the sea, with many dolphins killed because of tuna fishing. Dolphins and whales are popular to highlight because people like them a lot (thank Disney for that!) but plenty of other non-commercial fish are also entrapped and just thrown away back into the sea – literally they died for nothing.

    If we can stop the demand for fish, the fishing industry will stop. Will they starve? Like every industry which evolves, perhaps they will suffer for awhile to change occupations but in the long run, karmically, they would be much better off because they would stop killing.

    I am happy that the rescuers did help the whale at a risk to their lives though. And the whale’s gratitude is touching because it shows that the whale understood what was going on. These creatures are much more intelligent than we give them credit for. This should make us even more conscious of not hurting them.

    Lastly, i just wanted to say that the Guru is our ultimate rescuer from samsara, but because often we don’t even know that we are entangled, we fight against being freed. Like this whale, we should be grateful to our rescuer – but although we are supposed to be smarter, often we are not.

    Thanks again for this article and i will share it

  33. patsy on Apr 7, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    This is a touching and heartwarming story. The rescuers were very brave to risk their lives saving this humpback whale. On the other hand, the whale is able to show gratitude and thank each and everyone of the rescuers. This shows that animals have feelings too and we should treat animals with love and care. They are not for us to abuse or killed for human consumption. Be kind to animals.

  34. Girlie OOI on Apr 7, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    Humpback whales are not social creatures, so when this one was saved it went to every diver to express her thanks. I guess you do not need words to express thanks.

  35. Lim Han Nee on Apr 7, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Yes, more and more, through this blog, we get to see that every living being is precious, has feelings and fear death; and many seemingly ‘mute and dumb’ beings can actually express gratitude and thanks.

    Man is cruel, when he sets such vicious types of traps to ensnare the poor fish and whales. But man too has a kind side. I am glad that the heroic divers of the rescue team chose to disregard the risk of being killed by a flick of the whale’s tail. What they received, in turn, was a lovely show of gratitude by the whale after her rescue.

    Would that we will always remember the karmic debt we owe all beings, who have been our mothers before.Then ,we will care for one another and in return be cared for by others.

    Thank you for the lovely lines that ended this post and for your great compassion in always making such loving aspirations for us.

  36. sarahyap on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:59 am

    It is really sad that many of these magnificent creatures in the sea… whales and dolphins often fall in the trap of a fishermen’s net. Lucky they noticed this poor whale and released her before she drowned.

    When we think of others more than ourselves, we will do many things for the benefit of others. And usually, it will be something big! Just like this fisherman, not thinking about his own welfare and went over to rescue the trapped whale.

    We do need more selfless people in the world… that will lend a helping hand whenever others are in need, be it animals or people.

  37. Jessica Yap on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:47 am

    All sentient beings deserve kindness and compassion. The funny thing about nature is that we all seem to have an unspoken understanding towards one another.

    Not only this whale, i believe all animals can feel the compassion from humans if and when we are trying to help them. I read so many other amazing stories about how wild animals cooperated with humans while being rescued and how they do not attack anyone after they were helped. I guess this could be one of the ways they ‘thank’ us.

    I love stories like this! When people go out of their way to help another sentient being.. Warms my heart right away! Makes my faith in humanity restored!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  38. martin cody on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:35 am

    what a great story if only there were more people kike this.

  39. Martin on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:00 am

    This is a wonderful read with a double bonus. The first is how human beings came to the aid of another being and without much expectations of a reward at all. All too often we hear stories of how Man, being at the top of the food chain (for now anyway) abuse animals but in the last 20-30 years we see a slow but sure transformation in Man, learning to be a preserver of its environment and changing its attitude towards other species as co-inheritors of this planet we all live in. Even though so much damage has already being done, it is still not too late for human beings to intervene and stop further abuse and I hope to see the kindness shown in this story extended to all animals.

    The second is how the whale is able to show gratitude to its savers and in such a way that the people knew that the whale was thanking them. I hope this story spreads far and wide but this is yet another account which proves quite convincingly that animals do have that consciousness and feel emotions such as gratitude. That being the case, they can also feel pain and distress. Animals are not what we thought them to be decades ago, ie commodities for humans to use and eat. Unfortunately for every whale that is being rescued, thousands of other fishes of the sea and animals on land are being hunted, harmed, caged, abused and slaughtered. The awareness campaign has to pick up momentum.

    I like what Rinpoche wrote in the last part of the post, which is a wish for all to be surrounded by those who would come to our rescue when we become entangled in samsara. And that is the very purpose Tsem Rinpoche’s Kecharians foster and treasure fellowship so much. The reality is, we are already entangled in our own web seeing that we are in samsara. Strangely most people carry on as usual because they are not aware of their own entanglements. Ours may not be nets and weights such as the ones that trapped the whale. Ours are the delusions and wrong views we reinforce each and every day that binds our natural mind. If you are reading posts of this blog, you are lucky and have been spotted by rescuers and now you need to follow the blog all the way back to its source, which is Rinpoche himself, for real liberation.

  40. beatrix ooi on Apr 7, 2013 at 12:45 am

    It’s truly heartwarming. The divers were so kind that they wiling to take the risk to save the female humpback. They were also very lucky to be able to receive gratitude from the whale, it must be the most amazing thing in the world. I feel so happy for the whale, she is so fortunate to be able to meet the divers who willing to risk their own lives to save hers.
    Thank You for sharing this wonderful article Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  41. tfreon on Apr 7, 2013 at 12:36 am

    This is a very touching story. When we are entangled in our own delusion that causes bad karma to result, how much we hopes that someone could save us from drowning. But, when we see other people weakness, or their bad points or attitude, check carefully our own behavior, people we dislike or we are afraid of we will just run away. Don’t even have the thought to save the person.
    This story reminded me that i have many lifetimes, thus many people might have been kind to me in previous life. And, in future, if we wanted people to be kind to us, we should be kind to people now.

  42. Julien Roth on Apr 7, 2013 at 12:28 am

    This is so cool. To have the chance to be with a whale and for the whale to say thank you to you like this. But about the story, its so nice that the people who saved the whale put their lives at risk just to save this animal. That is what really matters in this story. I wish that more people would show the same level of kindess to all animals.

    How to Bless Buddha Images Yourself

    While there are traditional methods of blessing and consecrating statues, known as soongdroop and rabney, not everyone has the merit to live near a Dharma centre or monastery, or has access to these services. For this reason, Tsem Rinpoche has compassionately outlined three methods by which anyone can bless Buddha statues.

    The “One God” Theory Comes from Greek Mythology documentary.

    This is a very interesting documentary of how the one-god theory arose from ancients times. This theory was not the domain of established modern religions but were already existent in pre-modern or pagan religions. This video shows how the one god theory is not the exclusive rights of anyone but in fact was a gradual process taken from Pagan religions. So what we might pre-suppose as modern (non-paganistic) or exclusive of modern religions may not be the case. EXTREMELY INTERESTING.

    Please watch this intriguing documentary. But do concentrate and contemplate. It will be helpful for your religious studies. The one god theory may not be all that it is what we are told.

    Carlos Castaneda was an American New Age author and a scholar of anthropology — the study of human behaviour and societies. He wrote a series of popular books that described his training and magical experiences in Toltec Shamanism under the guidance of Don Juan Matus, a native Yaqui shaman who lived in Mexico.

    Castaneda’s writings brought him fame as well as controversy. His proponents and critics would debate as to whether his writings were the results of authentic experiences or an overactive imagination. Yet, despite the controversy, his expressive and evocative writing as well as the mysticism that surrounded his persona inspired widespread appreciation for Native American culture and earned him the title of “Godfather of the New Age Movement.”

    The Jewish people have been persecuted throughout recorded history, from their beginnings in the Middle East, through Europe during the Middle Ages, the Holocaust of the World Wars and into the modern era due to their race and religion. This persecution of a community has been sustained due to religious discrimination. We wanted to provide all of you with just a quick overview of what the Jewish people have been through. We hope you can learn from this, and understand the atrocities that religious persecution can lead to.

    Thanks for the wonderful experience and beautiful sharing of the Dorje Shugden Retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat. I loved the idea of this retreat for choosing Manjushri Guest House, which is a special place perched on a hilltop within the enchanting forest landscape of Kechara Forest Retreat for the Dorje Shugden Retreat. Of course learning anything in a super awesome environment is always amazing.

    A good news for those who are planning for mind relaxing in a retreat and choosing a best programmes at the right time. Well, besides exploring the forest retreat the programmes has also strongly connect for all participants to experience their power for overcoming obstacles and bringing peace and fulfillments through the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This wonderful information and a beautiful programmes should not to be missed in life time.

    Hope this Dorje Shugden Retreat programme will be frequently held for the benefits of the article readers.

    From time to time we will hear stories about children saying they see things or they are talking or playing with someone that obviously is not visible. We will always ask them to stop talking about it and brush them off. It is said that because children are purer, they are able to see things that we cannot see. Some of them are born with the third eye so they have the ability to see the unseen. We should teach them how to recite mantras and avoid establishing a close connection with them because we do not know if these beings are harmful. Or we can bring the child to a Buddhist master to get some blessings to protect them from harmful entities.

    Have you heard of the goddess Miyolangsangma before? She is also known as the Goddess of Inexhaustible Giving. Both Sherpas and Tibetans also believe that Mount Everest is the abode of the goddess Jomo Miyolangsangma. Miyolangsangma is one of the Five Long-life Sisters. Her abode is said to be at the summit of Mount Everest, known in Tibetan as Jomolungma (Goddess Mother of Mountains), and she is the resident goddess of Mount Everest and the Khumbu area in general. She is depicted riding on a tiger. Read more about what her function is and her importance in the Sherpas belief.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the world’s revered religious leaders, but that didn’t prevent four holders of the office from mysteriously dying. An autopsy proved inconclusive, but, for Yan, the identity of the murderers was obvious where the the twelfth Dalai Lama and his three predecessors were all “victims of the power struggles between the big clerical and lay serf-owners in Tibet.” .

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that the term ‘Jewish’ is applied to an ethno-religious group of people that practise Judaism. This means that it encompasses both an ethnicity and a religion at the same time.

    The majority of the Jewish people around the world descend from two distinct groups coming from Europe. In fact due to the religious pluralism prevalent in India, the Jewish population have lived in relative peace and harmony, allowing the adherence to their faith without much opposition. Thank you.

    Statistically, video games are now the most popular and profitable form of entertainment. For me , there’s always side effect on video games. I have seen many kids that have addicted to it and neglected their studies. One of the most detrimental effects of playing violent video games is increased aggression in children. A video game addiction can be harmful if the kids is unable to participate in any interests or extracurricular activities in schools. But by close supervision by parents I personally thinks playing video games is alright. Or else there will be many problems such as health, poor performance in their studies, increased in metal aggression and might suffered in relationships.
    The effects of playing video games are both positive and negative. When playing violent video games too much, it can leads to and increased aggressive behaviour as over time. Even some scientists has claim violent video games, have an adverse effect on young people.
    Over all conclusion, I would said that violent video games is harmful to society especially the younger ones. I have read in papers that it had cause death to those addicted ones.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this sharing.

    Every culture has its own world-view. In Tibet , it is renowned for its inclusion and development of psychic abilities among those very highly attained Lamas. In kids is rarely, most probably , they inherited the psychic power from their parents . It could be either good and bad, sometimes it cause harm to themselves too when there is extremely negative energy. It’s a torture and scary for anyone to experience and feel the existing of unseen beings or spirits . Interesting watch of the 3 young girls with psychic abilities.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this video sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share this good news with us. I rejoice for the retreatants who completed their Dorje Shugden retreat. Dorje Shugden retreat is a very beneficial activity for us to do to take a breather away from our city life where we are stressed out with many issues every single day.

    I have personally done retreats in Kechara Forest Retreat, and the experience is fantastic. Kechara Forest Retreat is a spiritually charged place where so many blessings were done on the land. Hence, any spiritual activities carried out there will be more effective. No to mention the environment here is stunning and so close to nature, which is very beneficial if we are looking to heal our mind and body.

    Thanks to Rinpoche, we now have an ideal place to do our retreats, which is Manjushri Guest House. Away from other activities in KFR, the much-needed silence and tranquillity in retreats can be found here. Rinpoche is always thinking of ways to improve our spiritual experience in KFR and hence KFR turned out to be as it is, a heaven on earth.

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

Pastor Gim Lee giving guidance. "Pastor Gim Lee and I assisted the retreatants in setting up the altar and Pastor Gim Lee performed Druchuma Puja (Kalarupa) to start the retreat. Pastor Gim Lee also guided them during the first session to introduce them to retreat procedures. The group completed 7 sessions of retreat and ended each night with circumambulation of the holy sites in Kechara Forest Retreat. Dinner and lunch were catered by the kitchen team in Dukkar Apartments, which were all delicious and beautifully presented. All participants loved the food." by Cynthia Ng

Earlier this month, five members from our Puja House engaged in a Dorje Shugden retreat, spending three days in Kechara Forest Retreat strongly focused on Dorje Shugden whilst reciting 185,000 of his mantra. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to create a closer connection with this enlightened Dharma Protector, as H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche shares. If you would like more information about how you too can engage in retreats at Kechara Forest Retreat, please direct your enquiries to our friendly Front Desk team (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).
