ABC

Jan 22, 2013 | Views: 962

Something our young people have started which shows care can start at any age. I am proud to present this to you. Please read.

In recent years, there have been many many cases of animal cruelty… In Kechara, we actively encourage for everyone to have a more compassionate perspective towards animals. It is unnecessarily cruel to eat them… but even more so if you physically abuse them for entertainment. What benefits can be gained?

Every month, Kechara has an animal liberation day and we also encourage the youths to take care of animals. In Kechara Village there will be a 100 foot walk-in aviary… all of our beautiful birds in the Ladrang aviary will be moved to the forest! Unlike helping another fellow human being, animals can’t say “Thank You”… so by cleaning their homes, feeding them food, taking them to the vet etc… will be without agenda, and therefore you practice real compassion.

For the past few months, 5 of our Kecharian youths have shown that they really care about animals… These 5 are Beatrix Ooi (15 years old), Julien Roth (13 years old), Edward Ooi (13 years old), Lucas Roth (11 years old) and Sean Wang (15 years old).

A month ago, I asked them if they would like to start an anti-cruelty animal coalition group… and they quickly replied YES!! Hehe The aim of the group is to create awareness on animal cruelty by youths. Young people must have a good cause to work towards. To teach them responsibility and care towards the denizens of this planet. Good to start them off early. 

Some of them had their final exams in October, so today they had their very first meeting! With Haven being their headquarters, they organized with their parents to arrive promptly at 5pm. Julien promised to buy the first meeting’s snacks… so he got 5 big bottles of drinks, 2 packets of veg sushi, 1 extra large pizza, 1 large pizza, 2 large packets of chips and 1 box of cheesy sticks..

Today, they did research on a catchy group’s name, voted for the group’s name, wrote out their individual short biography, took individual and group photographs, wrote out a description on why they started the group, what they intend to do as a group, compiled animal cruelty  images and videos… and they opened an email and Facebook fanpage account to secure their group’s name!

They have been collecting donations also for their work and some light expenditure it involves.

They have decided to call themselves the Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC)!

See their page here: https://www.facebook.com/AnimalBefriendersCoalition

Stay tuned…Give these youths your support please!! Get your kids involved on this page and get yourself involved on this page. Let our youths know that it is worth your time to show your support for their work. Help young people be encouraged when they are spending their time on something worthwhile. Empathy towards animals creates care and love in the individual’s heart…let’s encourage this in our youths. Let’s help love grow.

They started off the meeting by reciting the King of Prayers.

 

 

This sets the right motivation… which is to benefit all sentient beings, regardless of whether they are animals or human beings…

 

 

(l-r) Sean, Beatrix, Lucas, Edward and Julien. Here they are writing out their intentions.

 

 

Beatrix writing out the ideas for the group’s name!

 

 

After voting… the group name Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC) won!

 

 

Signing up for their email account…

 

 

Julien sponsored the drinks, snacks and dinner! Altogether it was about RM140! He had promised to pay for the first meeting’s meal… and kept his promise.

    Thank You so much Rinpoche for giving us a chance to help and save more lives. I feel much more happier after I became a member of ABC. I really wish that one day ABC owns a company which focuses on rescuing wild/abandoned animals, stopping people from using animal products( not in the wrathful way), promotes vegetarianism and putting animals up for adoption. Even if company have too many animals to take care, we will never ever put those animals too sleep or torture them. We want to have a big area to let the animals run around. But in order to accomplish that mission, WE NEED EVERY PERSON’S SUPPORT.

  2. What is an ABC? | Tsem Rinpoche on Mar 20, 2013 at 5:59 am

    […] back, 5 of my young students aged between 12 – 16 years old, formed a small group called Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC). The ABC formed to increase awareness of animal cruelty and to promote […]

  3. sweekeong on Feb 5, 2013 at 11:28 am

    That is a very cool group name to have. You are very creative! Congratulations on gathering together as a team to promote the idea that we need to be compassion towards animals and at the same time oppose to animal cruelty. No one deserve to be maltreated so does animals.

    Learning to work together as a team and being responsible are part of growing up. You guys and gals are working towards a common goal that is beneficial to all ie loving other sentient beings beside the human species. Congratulations again!

  4. MayOng on Jan 29, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Keep up the good work, the A-team of the ABC. I like the name Animal Befrienders Coalition and it suits its purpose of spreading care to others. You will inspire many. Congratulations!

  5. Bryan Ho on Jan 29, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    This group of young kids is really something because when I was in their age, I was still doing nothing but playing with my schoolmate. I’m really proud of the five of them to spend time for others. It’s very good to see this group of kids will not grow up to be another man/women who just care for themselves.

    They are in their teen right now instead of wasting their time in getting pleasure for themselves, they are now spending their free time to do research, getting information and write about animal cruelty. Animal can’t express their feeling through speech or words but they still feel pain, lonely or scared.

    In the human history, animal have provided a lot of help towards us (human), as we all know buffaloes provide help in farming, milk cow provide us daily products, but at the same time we also used them to provide us clothing/meat or even makes them to try something that even human won’t want to try such as animal testing on medical research.

    What this group of youngster wanted to do is to bring awareness to the public not to harm animal that won’t be able to express their feeling or pain, they might not speak but they feel too. This group of young people also bringing the message of compassion towards animal, which can easily achievable for everyone of us.

    I’m totally rejoice of their hard work and their compassion for others, I wish them all the best in whatever message they wanted to bring to the world, and let’s us (the adults) to help them to fulfil their wishes by supporting their fan page and bring their voices to others.

  7. pavara on Jan 28, 2013 at 11:21 pm

    WOW it is amazing that these group of young people can grow up to help animals. Can everyone please like ABC on Facebook and help raise funds and spread awareness against animal cruelty.we should help animals because they have no voice but that does not mean they do not have feelings and we do not know whether they are our mothers, because they might be reborn as animals.(you can donate money to any of the ABC people if you see them. any amount is accepted. donation way monthly or once)

  8. Uncle Lai on Jan 27, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Cruety to animals has often been taken as a joke or fun in the everday life.These animals suffered the pain of being abused, beatened, tortured helplessly with no one to turn to for protection.

    Today these 5 teenagers, (Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Juien and Edward) after they have learned the dharma from Rinpoche, stood up couragerously and started the Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC).
    Thank you to these 5 young people to make a example and a difference.

    Congratulations,I wish you great success

  9. Jessica Yap on Jan 26, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Dear Beatrix, Sean, Julien, Lucas and Edward, thank you very much for inspiring those around your age and us adults as well. Your parents brought you fine kids up very well. The greatest gift we can give to our children is the gift of Dharma to protect them because we are not able to hold their hands forever.

    Animal cruelty is a very important and pressing matter at this day of age. ALL sentient beings deserves compassion and kindness. I would not want to be reborn as someone else’s meal in my future lives! So please think twice about eating meat or abusing any animals..

    Thank you kids for creating awareness through ABC. I truly am inspired by you kids! Good luck!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing! =)

  10. Sofi on Jan 26, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    Congrats to u all, Beatrix, Edward, Sean, Julien n Lucas! Great inspiration for all youngsters n adults too.

  11. Lam on Jan 26, 2013 at 4:01 am

    Congratulation to the five energetic youths, Beatrix, Julien, Lucas, Sean and Edward who started Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC). Well done! For such a young age you all have shown compassion and care for animals. I rejoice for the parents of these kids as well.

    I thank you Rinpoche for instilling this idea of forming an anti-crueIty coalition group who will promote awareness on animal cruelty and care for all animals.

    I wish that the ABC will grow fast, more youths will join your group and your mission will be accomplished.

    I hope to see more and more animals will be saved and well taken care of. Keep it up! Kids.

  12. wei theng on Jan 26, 2013 at 3:36 am

    Bravo Beatrix, Sean, Julien, Edward and Lucas! Thanks for making a stand to show your care and love to animal!
    Not just for kids and youth, you also setup an example for all the adults. This is compassion in action! Rejoice to see all of you walking the spiritual path together!
    May you always be blessed by the three jewels and be close with Guru!

  13. lucy yap on Jan 25, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Beatrix,Julien,Edward,Lucas and Sean,you are simply amazing! To be passionate to make a difference in animal cruelty.Animal abuse runs rampant and is often unseen.
    Congratulations to the parents of these wonderful young teenagers.
    Most of all to Rinpoche,who is the guiding light to these kids who will be kind and compassionate adults of the future generation.

  14. Pastor Yek Yee on Jan 25, 2013 at 3:50 am

    Wah…that is something really touched and warm my heart after I finished read this post. The five young boy and girl give up their own attachment as their age and join together work something such great. I admired what they are doing now.

    I am not animal lover before that honestly. Now, I have changed. I started have feeling to animals and give my love and care to them. When I am starting care about animals such as doggies and kitten feeling I found out my heart open a lots. I got more tolerance towards peoples I consider don’t like. I more care about others. Amazing!!!

    Many friends of mine like animals, they really love them. They are influenced me indirectly.

    That why when I read the post “ABC” I feel so happy that a power from behind to protect the animals being suffered. Five of them average age from 15 to 11 years old. They got a kind heart to save the animal being torture and treat cruelty by human. They are voice out the protection message to stop or reduce this kind of cruelty thing happened, we must support them all the way!

    ABC will be a very powerful group to protect animals being torture, hurt, abuse and so forth. Please give them support by our action and showed a good example.

    Last, I would like to thank Rinpoche created this ABC group and selected 5 of the main members in ABC. I also want to thank ABC members work hard to prevent animals being abuse, kill, torture and hurt. I sincerely do my prayer for ABC successful. Thank you all of you!

  15. Julia Tan on Jan 25, 2013 at 3:01 am

    Congratulation! I think you guys are showing the world how much you care about animals and you are serious and ready to do something about it. Your action will encourage many people to start caring for the animals, to get involved to safe the animals. I am sure many will realized the important of not killing them by reading your blog. Glad to see young adults getting themselves involved into such a noble work. Keep it up. Thank you Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edward for taking out the extra time to make this happened.

  16. Martin on Jan 25, 2013 at 1:48 am

    We have often wondered how it is that the world became so cruel and callous towards animals and the answer lies in the simple fact that for most of us, the value and preciousness of each life was never imbued into us from young. It is easier to absorb a new philosophy and incorporate it into the daily life when we are young and before years of habituations set in. Therefore what the wonderful young people are doing with ABC is exactly the right thing to do i.e. practicing humanity and compassion, educating others and influencing people their age to follow.

    I am very glad for the ABC team because not only are their taking responsibilities early, they are also teaching compassion by showing the way. What is it about treating animals properly that young kids can understand and yet a lot of adults cannot grasp.

    I hope ABC grows from force to force and I hope they spread far and wide so that the next generation can do something real and effective to prevent cruelty to animals.

  17. Carmen K. on Jan 24, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    Dear Team ABC,

    Congratulations on your highly successful fanpage. Reaching 38,000 likes is a feat, and this is only the beginning.

    I’d like to congratulate each one of you, for standing up and choosing to be different. To stand up and change the way the world goes round, because you know that there’s something wrong. Many people would rather not do anything if it doesn’t affect them per se, but hats off because you guys said “No, I’m going to do something about this”.

    You guys are inspirational, and will lead the future generations to make a stance in showing kindness towards animals. Keep up the excellent work, and continue to promote Kindness towards Animals to the world.

    Oh your facebook page is nice! Keep it active and interesting as it has been so far. 🙂

    Love,
    Carmen

  18. Jean Ai on Jan 24, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Well done kiddies, for leading the way and putting so many adults to shame with your compassion. It is often said that murderers have a history of animal abuse when they are younger.

    I think it doesn’t have to be so extreme, and what it can refer to is this – if you are capable of harming animals when you’re young, then hurting others when you’re older becomes much easier because from young, you haven’t learnt to value life.

    Now flip it the other way – if you are capable of loving animals when you’re young, then loving others when you’re older becomes much easier, and hurting them becomes less likely.

    So if you want your kids to grow up to be kind people, teach them to love animals the way ABC does!

  19. Lanse on Jan 24, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Well done ABC.

    With 5 kids with average age of 13.4, ABC fanpage has achieved more than 38k likes in just a few months. Congratulations to them and thanks for their hardwork.

    On ABC facebook, there are always a lot of new updates with photos and videos to create awareness of animal cruelty and promoting vegetarianism. It shows how committed they are in helping the animals.

    I rejoice to see this. Hopefully with this fanpage and the effort of the currently small group of youth, many young people will join in their good work in helping to promote vegetarianism or at least to prevent animal cruelty.

    If young kids can do their best in becoming animal friendly person, there will be no excuse for their parents or other adults to not doing the same. Then our society will have lessen our collective karma of killing.

    Thanks to Rinpoche’s kindness in inspiring these youth to do something very meaningful for a very good cause.

  20. abby f on Jan 24, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Congratulations to the ABC team! They are so young yet they can do so much! And it is very inspiring that kids are passionate about saving animals and against animal cruelty. And this makes no excuse for the adults for not doing anything and keep hurting the animals. I think it is very powerful and persuasive to have kids doing this. They have strong stands against animal cruelty and they can speak, write and talk to people about this. These kids are the people who can change the world. Loving and kindness is nothing to do with age, experience or qualification, even kids have love and kindness! So don’t make more excuses for ourselves for not doing anything to care and love for other sentient beings.

    Congratulations and thank you to the ABC team for all the works!

  21. HelenaC on Jan 24, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    I am so proud of them!! Rejoice for ABC!!! It is great to see they putting so much effort to make the page grow and spread the awareness of animal abuse. The world need this. They are really doing a fantastic job!!! Bravo Beatrice, Julien, Sean, Edward and Lucas. Love you guys 🙂

  22. sockwan on Jan 24, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Not only these children have set up a community to promote loving and caring for animals, they also spend their Sunday helping in the flea marktet to raise fund for Kechara. This is how they are giving back to the society and bring benefits to others.

  23. KH Ng on Jan 24, 2013 at 1:01 am

    ABC. Animal Befrienders Colition. What a good name to start with. Catchy and easy to remember. ABC, started by 5 inspiring young persons to spread awareness on cruelty to animals without agenda. Because animal cannot give back anything literally, there can be no agenda of gain directly for these compassionate young people. They deserve all our support and we all can learn a lot from them. I rejoice!

  24. justin cheah on Jan 24, 2013 at 12:33 am

    I am so proud of you guys! Keep up the good work! It is always great to start off young and as many other parents will be worried with their teenage kids over what will they be doing after school hours or during their leisure times, I am sure your parents will not be worried but very proud of you all. What a wonderful way to fill in your youth by creating awareness on animal cruelty and vegetarianism. Rather than only focusing on video games, TV programmes, internet and outdoor games, this is more worthwhile and help you guys a lot. Congratulations on the 38k FB likes! Don’t forget to tell your friends about this ABC that you guys started! Congratulations!

  25. lewkwanleng on Jan 23, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    It is indeed quite sad to see a lot of animal abuse on the internet lately. Beating, torturing and killing are just some of the ways people mistreat the animals, and they even film the whole incident and put them up on internet purposely. It is indeed very sad and totally unnecessary.

    On the other hand, it is indeed very inspiring to see teenagers starting some noble causes for the animals, by educating people to treat our animal friends better. By being in Dharma, these teenagers show their friends that other than playing iPad, sports, there are many other meaningful activities they can get involved.

    Since animals cannot say “Thank you” to us even if we treat them nice, therefore, it is a very good way to cultivate kindness through animals. And by cultivating kindness through actions from young will make this world a better place to live in.

    Keep up the good work!!

  26. Jutika on Jan 23, 2013 at 10:38 pm

You are very fortunate, to have received the blessings of Rinpoche and have come under his care and guidance.Good luck all the way!

  28. Pastor Susan on Jan 23, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    I love reading this blog post and the lovely pictures 🙂 There are many proud parents’ comments below that i have read also…makes me think how interesting and unique these group of kids are.

    Many parents today takes pride in their children’s piano performances, choir concerts, sports competitions and many other performances which the kids put in effort weekly to train (generously paid by their parents). That is good if we don’t miss the trees for the forest. How many will actually make something in life with the ball games, with their piano and ballet classes etc? What is it exactly that the parents expects and how will it affect anyone else?

    These kids in the pictures are great students, play sports and does activities other kids do too but they are doing something which perhaps a tiny % of their peers are engaged in. The pride their parents experience from witnessing what their kids are doing is impactful… they are using their talent and energies towards caring for other weaker life forms. Don’t you think they will grow up to be responsible adults who cares for others? Isn’t this what every parent would want for their kids.

    What are we encouraging our kids to be spending their time on? Is it worthwhile as the early forming years will pass very quickly…I hope it is and you experience the joy and pride in witnessing a great individual blossoming.

    Rinpoche is making this possible for the young people who have come in contact with him. Would you like your children to be involved to?

  29. Cynthia Ng on Jan 23, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Congratulations to Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC) and Rejoice of Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edwardhave made the effort to help others – to help animals. It’s great to start taking initiative, care and loves the animals and develop compassion. This is a good qualities we should have it especially have to start at young age.

    Thank you to all the hard work to bring awareness about Animals welfare.

  30. jennifer on Jan 23, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Dear Beatrix, Julien, Edward, Lucas and Sean,

    I am so so very proud of you guys and am most priviledged to know you.

    I always feel that animals are much better than man. Animals only kill another animal if they are threatened, for food and for survival. Animals have more positive emotions than man in general , and i rejoice that ABC is now formed to protect these beautiful creatures from man !

    It really touches my heart that these beautiful children has such compassion and loving kindness for the animals and are spending their time (and money) on such a worthwhile cause.

    I rejoice for the parents of these children ; what fantastic kids you have !!!

    Love what you all are doing and love you lots. 🙂

  31. Datuk May on Jan 23, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    What a wonderful way for young people to start their journey on compassion and care for all sentient beings. In real life it seems difficult for youngsters to show compassion to their peers as they fight over the smallest thing, to adults whom they feel are their care takers and providers. In such an environment they learn selfishness and to be takers.

    Thanks to the wonderful idea of Rinpoche to encourage the ABC pioneers to care for animals who cannot say “thank you” and for such compassion and kindness and care to animals these youngsters give without agenda.

    ABC pioneers are vegetarians, imagine no more KFC, MacDonalds and all that yummy food. I salute you guys and may you inspire such kindness from many others with your efforts and actions.

    Thank you for being an inspiration.

  32. Sean Wang on Jan 23, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing the ABC fanpage on your blog. It is a great honor to help in the spread of awareness of animal cruelty and to stop animal cruelty altogether. Especially, with Rinpoche as our guide. Rinpoche has always cared for animals and that is what inspired me to put my all into ABC and I do this because I love animals and wish to see a world were cruelty is something that is non-existant. As Leo Tolstoy said, “As long as there are slaughterhouses, there wil be battlefields”

  33. Adrian Chow on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    Dear Beatrix, Edward, Lucas, Julian and Sean…well done on the efforts by setting up a group against animal cruelty online. And also congratulation to all your effort for now, the Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC) Facebook Page had reached 38,151 Like!!! Wow!!! Liked.

    Instead of spending your free time by just doing the norm like any other kids, you all have achieved something more meaningful by creating an awareness against animal cruelty. We as a whole in Kechara and your family and friends will definitely support all your effort. Gambateh!!!

  34. wahying on Jan 23, 2013 at 11:49 am

    It’s wonderful to see teenage spend time and pour in effort in something worthwhile and benefit others like this. I am happy for them as the example for other children and adults as well. Yes, we must support good cause like Animal Befrienders Coaltion (ABC) and let LOVE grows!

  35. David Lai on Jan 23, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Dear ABC,

    I hope you kids are reading this. Its wonderful that you guys have decided that you wanted to do more for others. I am sure you are very busy with school, homework, exams, serving your parents and extra-curricular activities. It is good that you are starting your ‘Dharma work’ so young because it will be a great way to give back to your parents, the Dharma and Rinpoche.

    I am very proud and I wish I started out in the Dharma when I was your age too. Instead, I was just preoccupied with myself most of the time and now that my youth is gone, there’s nothing much in my youth to show for. You, on the other hand have so much to share later and the adventures you guys share in shaping this little coalition makes you grow and be more responsible for others. I am very sure that you guys will be alright later because it will shape you guys in the Dharma.

    It’s just incredible how the Dharma is so beneficial to every and for all walks of life especially when it is put into practice. The quicker one put it into practice, the happier we become because the responsibility leads us towards being respectful of others and making them happy. I don’t think I need to take too much already as I am sure Rinpoche would have shared with you guys already. I wanted to say, congratulations and good luck with the caring for animals and your work with the coalition.

  36. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 23, 2013 at 10:55 am

    Beatrix, Julian, Lucas, Edward and Sean are really great kids, they are matured, intelligent, and a very kind heart.

    they started this ABC is because they can’t sit there and see the animal got abused anymore, so they decided to stand up, do something to stop these cruel act. How brave are they.

    Although they are kids, but their act is much matured than adult. We must give them all the support we can, we must support them, because they are doing something what we suppose to do and we didn’t do.

    Thank you everyone for your kind act.

  37. Diana Pereyda on Jan 23, 2013 at 7:21 am

    what sweet children, renews my faith; There is good in this world, please let them grow into loving adults. And when other children learn by their actions that its cool to care about animals and other beings that need love and care, the ABC club will flourish with many more helpers and children. So proud of all of you; congrats Sean,Edward,Julien,Lucas,and Beatrix. May the Dharma be with you.

  38. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 23, 2013 at 3:49 am

    It’s great for them to have Dharma at young age with great parents and Kecharians nurturing them. Rejoice for them to understand the pains of weaker beings and spread the awareness throughout social media.

  39. Pastor Chia on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:40 am

    How wonderful see 5 Junior kecharian is taking the vow to again animal cruelty. Animal can’t stop and express their emotion.We must always show kindness and take care on learn. Is good to teach children since the are young to develop their responsibility and compassion.

    Congratulate to this 5 young kecharian will create more awareness to protect animal and helping many animal at the future.

  40. Ong Moh Mei on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:25 am

    Congratulations Beatrix, Edward, Julien, Roth and Sean. You kids prove that age is not a restriction. With today’s Internet accessibility you can create awareness and reach out to many from behind the computer. You chose to speak for animals who cannot speak for themselves. I salute you.

    You are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche at such young age and have to karma to practice compassion towards animals. May you be an inspiration to children around the world (and adults alike) in being more compassionate towards animals.

    ps: love the acronym ABC 🙂

  41. Joe Ang on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:14 am

    Very good and catchy name Animal Befrienders Coalition ABC. Well done Beatrix, Sean, Julien, Lucas and Edward.
    What you guys are doing will create awareness, influence and inspire more young people like yourselves to be more sensitive and kind towards animals. Do keep up the good work for many more to know, understand and develop compassion towards all animals that shares this world with us. 🙂

  42. tenzin llhamo on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:44 am

    Congratulations ABC! Great job guys! I am glad you chose ABC among all the names. It sounds much better! You guys are so creative!
    At such a young age, you showed everyone you can do it! Instead of spending time on endless and useless games, you are doing something so great that will bring awareness to many! I am so proud of you guys. Continue to show people how we all can be compassionate towards all animals.
    I will support you guys all the way!

  43. Khoo Hou Haw on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:31 am

    Good job, ABC! If everyone can learn from these 5 fantastic kids, the world will be so much less suffering!
    Everyone should look at their very cute and informative Facebook page. There are a lots of interesting, cute photo and video as well as wonderful links. They even have more “Likes” than SPCA Malaysia!
    Keep up the good work and let’s change the world.

  44. nicholas on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Congratulation ABC!

    You all will inspire a lot of young generation and show them what a real love and compassion towards being that unable to speak in our language to tell us their problem, sickness or even say thank you when we treat them well.

    You all are going to show and tell others how the young generation will protect the animals and teach them from young. It’s not something new but it’s not something that young people will do too as I believe you all are very aware of what they are up to at this age….hehehe.

    I’m proud of you all that willing to take up responsibility and really doing dharma. You all will create the cause for many young one to understand what is dharma all about and I believe you all will make it fun too.

    Love this: It’s not always about us.

  45. Angelshooi on Jan 23, 2013 at 12:39 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing and posting the team of ABC.:)

    I would like to thank Rinpoche for creating such good cause for the 5 kids to start their Dharma journey at a young age. They are very fortunate to have Rinpoche’s love, care and guidance for them.

    I am very proud of them. Especially both my kids Beatrix and Edward. Dear Kids, please keep it up, you all will be the next generation of Kechara.

    Love, aunty Angel

  46. patsy on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Congratulations to our young Kecharians for starting ABC!!! It is nice to see young children spending quality time and putting in the effort for good causes. Animals’ sufferings are greater than human as they can’t express their feelings and ABC will be the voice for them. Stop animal abuse.

    Well done, Beatrix, Sean, Edward, Lucas and Julien. I am proud of all of you and I am sure your parents are too and thank you for setting an example for the young generation!!! Keep up the good work!!!

  47. Felix Kong on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Wow, so proud of 5 young Kecharian who is Beatrix Ooi (15 years old), Julien Roth (13 years old), Edward Ooi (13 years old), Lucas Roth (11 years old) and Sean Wang (15 years old) . Please let more and more peoples aware about cases of abuse animal , now your Animal Befrienders Coalition (ABC) at Facebook have more than 38,000 friends “Like” you , cheer 🙂

  48. Henry Ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    I’m happy and proud my two children, Beatrix and Edward, are involved with ABC. It’s something worth spending their time on instead of lazing around in the house watching TV, playing computer games or hanging out at the malls. The dharma work they do entails them to do research, read up and educate themselves on human values, something they may not get to learn in school.

    Go all the way, guys! Love all five of you!

  49. jp on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Very cute! And very inspiring to be able to make a difference for others at such a young age. This is what our communities need if we want a better future for the next generation; love, kindness, compassion, and genuine care for others. In order to culltivate these qualities, it is necessary to start young so that it becomes second nature.

    How wonderful if all our children grow up to be responsible and caring people. Then, the world will be a better place to live in.

  50. Girlie Ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    How wonderful that this group of young people got together to combine their effort in helping the animals. What a great way to start young, learning to be compassionate to all beings.

    Good work guys!!! Continue with what you are doing. You are on the right track.

  51. Erickksiow on Jan 22, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    Proud of Beatrix Ooi (15 years old), Julien Roth (13 years old), Edward Ooi (13 years old), Lucas Roth (11 years old) and Sean Wang (15 years old). And they did create an awareness in FB page. Support ABC for always. :))

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  52. mitra on Jan 22, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Rejoice for ABC team,It’s wonderful to see this children, at such a young age have made the effort to help others… in their case to help animals.Congratulation to Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edward.

  53. edward ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us instructions to create awareness to tell people some animals are being treated nicely and most of the animals in the world have being slaughtered by human beings. We should not be picky in the sense of the animals that you love are treated better and other animals such as chickens should be slaughtered and eaten by us. So love all animals and don’t be picky. Please be a vegetarian and promote vegetarianism.
    PS: Please like our page and share about your thoughts. Thank you for reading.

  54. beatrix ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    First of all, I would like to thank Rinpoche for taking Your time to share about our fanpage on the blog. I’m very happy and proud to be a part of this group. Thank You Rinpoche for giving Your blessings to us and to this coalitIon. I hope that we can reach out through more people in future. We will work harder in order to spread the awareness of animal cruelty. Animals deserve better!
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  55. Milly Lim on Jan 22, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    Congratulations to ABC! Even the initials are catchy. I am proud that you young Kecharians are so hardworking and putting dharma into action by setting up this coalition. It shows that you have absorbed and apply Rinpoche’s teachings on compassion. Its very sad that animals are being abused so cruelly these days. By creating this awareness and educating more people on kindness, we pray that innocent animals will have a safe and loving environment to co-exist with human beings. Continue to work hard and I wish you all every success.

  56. yeomiawkee on Jan 22, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    So happy that Rinpoche have raised awareness to these young generation on compassion and animals lover. If only all young children start from young by their parents to be aware and be compassionate towards animals, there won’t be any chaos around as charity begins at home!

  57. Lucas Roth on Jan 22, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Who ever reads this go to our facebook page and like it. :D. I am so happy to be a proud vegetarian and to be a part of this coalition. this is a wake up call, you are never too young or to old to do anything.

  58. Julien Roth on Jan 22, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing our page on Rinpoche’s blog. I hope now more and more people will see our page and will come a support it. We need to stop animal cruelty!! But we can only do this together. And if we all become vegetarian. It will help tremendously!! I hope that many people come to this post and eventually go onto our fb page. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Rinpoche.

  59. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 22, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Thanks kids, thank you for showing what it means to care by taking action to do something about it. Hope you can create even much more awareness so we can hear less and less stories about cruelty to animals in the news. What joy to be young and have a purpose!

  60. AdelineTan on Jan 22, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Congratulation to these 5 wonderful young children, Sean, Beatrix, Edward, Julien and Lucas for starting the fan page to bring awareness to the welfare of the animals.They have spent time and effort to work for this good course and with Rinpoche’s blessings,may Animal Befrienders Coalition will grow far and wide.

  61. K T GOH on Jan 22, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    Dear ABC, BEST OF LUCK in your projects and may you bring Happiness,
    Relief And Compassion to millions of animals! The Animal Kingdom is very lucky to have you as their friends and to bring awareness about Animals welfare.

  62. philyong on Jan 22, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    So happy to see these children spending their time for something meaningful. Congratulations Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edward for setting a good example for the youth of today. You guys are heading towards the right direction for sure. Keep it up! =D

  63. Joy on Jan 22, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    Wonderful rejoicing to NEWS!!! This is such a meritorious compassionate department, ABC, that directly helps those that are weak and without a voice! I am so proud of these beautiful kinds behind it for they get to develop loving kindness towards animals and those that are helpless and cannot voice it out. It is good to develop these qualities in children for while they are young because then when they are grown up, they it will be easier for them to develop an altruistic compassionate heart.

    Here is also a chance for these kids to learn how to give back to the society and learn the art of giving without expecting anything back, instead of always being spoil by their whims and wants and demands from their parents… they learn how to be not selfish and always think of themselves…. how can they expect anything back from an animal that is injured? What brilliant idea that Rinpoche has skillfully come up with for these fortunate kids to learn how to care for others, be responsible, be courageous, be kind and do this and collect merits! Wow!!! Kudos to all of you… may you grow, your department grow and be a change that you want to see in the world and for our future! xxx

  64. Andrew Boon on Jan 22, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    Congratulations to each and everyone of you founding members of ABC. A simple acronym for the group with a deep meaning behind it. The facebook account is updated constantly with plenty of information and is coming up to 38,152 likes already. Well done and keep it up!

    It is wonderful to see such youthful enthusiasm, determination and hard work. A good example of how our youth will be the leaders of our future. The need to instill our youth, from a tender age, on basic moral discipline is vital in their eventual contribution back into society!

  65. Sharon Saw on Jan 22, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Dear ABC

    Congratulations to you on starting such a noble cause. Although you started awhile back, you have been consistently updating your facebook with interesting articles and also fundraising for your cause. Great job!

    I love the fact that these dharma kids are doing something positive in their off-school time to benefit others. What did we do as kids when we were that age? And it is all from the kind guidance of HE Tsem Rinpoche. Sean (my son) was inspired to be vegetarian on his own accord due to Rinpoche’s sharing of compassionate eating and the other kids are also vegetarian too – so they really walk the talk. Rinpoche always says how can we say we love animals and eat them??

    I hope these kids will inspire others to do the same thing – to promote being kind to animals and being vegetarian also.

    Thank you to Tsem Rinpoche for guiding the dharma kids to think of others at this young age. With the dharma as their compass, i am sure they will grow up to be responsible youths and adults, which is all every parent wants for their children.

    Wonderful work, kids.. keep it up!

  66. Khong Jean Mei on Jan 22, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    I’m so happy to see these young adults so passionate about animal cruelty.

    I really am proud of how they actively get their friends to join in, they are proud to be vegetarian and they openly show that they care a lot about animals.

    Many kids nowadays will not care at all about how animals are being treated. Some are ashamed (or lazy) and try to fit in with whatever the majority people of their age thinks.

    These ABC kids are the movers and shakers of their generation. They stand out from those in the year to show that it’s awesome to be different, it’s awesome to stand for a cause.

    The ABC kids have now surpassed all the other animal groups in Malaysia with 38,152 Facebook fans… KEEP IT UP, GUYS!!!!!!! 🙂

    I hope to see lots more kiddies join in 🙂

  67. Li Kim on Jan 22, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    I cannot help but smile brightly reading this article because I rejoice that young adults show kindness to beings who will never say Thank You. Rinpoche is so kind to take them on for this and teaching them all about compassion and kindness. I am grateful to Rinpoche.

    My sons are a part of ABC (Julien and Lucas) and I so proud of them that they can think beyond themselves. Of course they have thier fun and fancies , now they have Dharma on top of it all like icing on the cake. Are they “angels”? No…. far from but they have a headstart now to be adults who will have compassion, kindness, intelligence, wit – I will eventually “lose” them to the world and they will have to face their own set of issues in life, now that they have Dharma in their lives I can be assured that they will be able to make choices which are based on the values I have mentioned. It is comforting to know this.

    Thank you to Rinpoche and Kechara that my kids can receive the Buddha’s teachings at such a young ageeeeeeee.

  68. choi sheem on Jan 22, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    To the 5 young Kecharians(Beatrix, Edward. Julien, Lucas, and Sean)who started ABC, I would like to congratulate you all for starting this project. You have all learnt very well on being kind and compassionate and now you are putting Rinpoche’s teaching into action. May you be able to go very far to create awareness against cruelty to animals. And may you also get more young and energetic youths to support and work towards this noble cause. We are so proud of you all.

  69. Paris on Jan 22, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    This is great and wonderful to hear of young people taking on such an honorable project for the sake of other beings. While most children their age wouldn’t think twice chowing down on fried chicken or, worse, pelting stones at stray dogs, these kiddies put their peers and grown ups to shame by being vegetarian and spending their free time to raise awareness of the welfare of other beings. The same can’t be said for many others their age, or even of people twice their age!

    I think it’s great that more and more young people are developing this consciousness at an early age for it’ll make a tremendous difference for when they’re older in the way they interact with the world around them and relate to other beings. Rinpoche has pointed out that children who have been raised with an awareness and love of animals grow up to be much less angry, less selfish people who think twice about hurting others; children who grow up in families that openly abuse animals carry on this deeply selfish and arrogant trait through to their adulthood and find it very hard to understand why their actions might harm others. So while some think that it may be “just animals”, our treatment of their reflects a lot more about us and humans than it does about animals.

    Thank you to the 5 wonderful kiddies of ABC for setting an example for a new generation, for showing the whole world (not just young people) what it means to take that extra step forward to make a difference in lives of many beings, to educate others on the most basic qualities of kindness. Here’s wishing you ALL THE BEST in your projects and may you bring happiness and relief to millions of animals! The Animal Kingdom is lucky to have you as their friends 🙂

  70. Lim (KH JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Rejoice for ABC team, u guys are so awesome and hardworking…

    May ur team hardwork can give awareness to public to lesser the animal cruelty all around the world.

    ABC facebook fanpage is quite professional…

  71. William C on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Congratulations to the youths who have taken up the responsibility to save animals through creating awareness among Kecharians and also the public. They have taken this important step to do something great in their lives at a young age especially to animals which could not say thank you. This coalition will definitely generate more kindness and compassion in the society and with the guidance from Rinpoche, it could only become bigger.

    Keep up the good work guys and may this be the start of many greater things to come. Well done!

  72. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    It is nice to see youths putting their time and efforts into good causes. The intention behind ABC is a good one, in addition to this working in a group also helps to cultivate many attitudes and behaviours that will become useful when these kids all grow up and step into society, things such as communication, conflict management, team work, self-sacrificing for bigger goals, etc.

    There will be much hurdles along the way, and perhaps will be even more for ABC as they are learning while doing at the same time. But the paybacks will be great as well, because they learn compassion and leadership skills at the same time and while they are still very young.

    I wish ABC great success!!!

  73. Han on Jan 22, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    WOW, ABC facebook fanpage hit 38k up today . Congratulation to Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edward for working on this fabulous fanpage.

    Thank you all for working so hard to bring awareness about Animals welfare.

    See their page here: https://www.facebook.com/AnimalBefriendersCoalition

  74. DR on Jan 22, 2013 at 10:58 am

    Dear ABC, Congratulations for starting an animal movement. Animals can’t speak and express themselves like us humans and so it is wonderful to know that you can be the voice for them! I am a big fan of ABC Facebook Fanpage and you have 38K+ Likes. That’s a very popular fanpage. Well done young people. Aunty DR is very proud of you all and I am sure your mummy and daddy are too. Keep up the good work as you are the future generation of Kechara! My love to you all!

  75. sarahyap on Jan 22, 2013 at 9:41 am

    It’s wonderful to see this children, at such a young age have made the effort to help others… in their case to help animals. How fortunate they are to have something meaningful to do, and it is thanks to Rinpoche’s creative ways of helping everyone bring out the best in them, regardless of age.

    Since ABC was formed, the children has been continuously promoting their fan page, and did much research about animals. It’s great to see good qualities like taking responsibility, initiative and passion for their cause develop in these children because these are qualities that will make them successful in the future.

    I would like to congratulate all FIVE: Beatrix, Lucas, Sean, Julien and Edward for working very hard to bring awareness about Animal welfare. Looking forward to see the fan page grow more!

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing the Buddhist Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka. Very touching article, heart breaking to read and to see pictures of the Tsunami tragedy. It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Surprise to know our colon contain of poison due to unbalance diet of food intake. It really true, our body is often conceded toxins as a result of an unhealthy food consumed. However i think it is best to keep a food journal correctly to maintain and track our food intake.

    It is really important to eliminate waste from your body every day to maintain a good lifestyle and stay healthy. Hoping to keep the simple ingredients in mind and help many to keep their colon healthy.

    Thank you very much for the article sharing a great fact that we need to take it
    seriously to save life.

    A very good choice to place a Buddha statue there to bless the beings that are around that area. Many people had lost their lives during the tsunami in 2004 and I believe that area will be full of the spirits of the people that lost their lives during disaster.
    It good that Sri Lanka has since built and dedicated a Buddha statue for the deceased and to plant the seeds of enlightenment for all who visit and see it. Thank you for sharing nice article with us.

    Winston Churchill was a British politician, military officer and writer who did twice served as the prime minister of Great Britain. Churchill did helped to lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Soviet Union during World War II. I did not know of his dark side till this post. Winston Churchill was in fact a clear racist and a stubborn imperialist. To many historians Churchill was seen as at the most brutal and brutish end of the British imperialist spectrum. Churchill’s imperialism was motivated only by an altruistic desire to elevate the putatively lower races. Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin. He hate Indians recording to him they are a beastly people with a beastly religion. These are another side to Churchill’s politics and career that should not be forgotten amid the endless parade of eulogies.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of this great statesman with a darker side behind.

    Thank you H.E. Gyara Rinpoche for spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many thousands Tibetans in Tibet . H.E. Gyara Rinpoche an erudite scholar recently gave Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation to thousands of monks and lay people in Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has claimed that Dorje Shugden practice is a minor practice on many occasions. This is not true at all, looking at the pictures tells all. Thousands of Tibetans gathers at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, listening to Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings as well as the Guhyasamaja initiation clearly has proven it. He also gave commentary on Dorje Shugden’s qualities, history to strengthen the people’s faith in Dorje Shugden and explaining about the controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news and may more people have knowledge and understanding of Dorje Shugden . May the ban on it be lifted soon.

    Truly a selfless heroine indeed Neerja Bhanot an Indian senior flight attendant who died while saving 340 passengers on Pan Am Flight 73. The plane was hijacked by terrorists dressed as security guards during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan. She died heroically helping cockpit crews escape in order to ground the plane so it could not be flown. Amazingly her quick action she hid passports of passengers so the hijackers could not determine passenger nationalities. She also managed to open the emergency door assisting a number of passengers to escape from the plane. But sadly as the hijackers opened fire on passengers and crew, Neerja Bhanot lost her life shielding the three children from bullets. Her bravery, courage and noble qualities , she was awarded awards for her selfless act and a film entitled “Neerja” was released, portraying her herioc life. A trust fund was set up in memory of this amazing woman. Even till today the Neerja Bhanot Pan Am Trust fund continues to do great work.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story of a selfless heroine.

    Truly inspiring article, glad to know about the free community clinic of Acupuncture at Ananda Nagar. Firstly I would like to thank Mr. Charles Martley, for his effort to create a help center for the needy at the rural area. His great concern of the environment people and able to build a good relationship to reach them.

    I believe, ass long these free acupuncture treatments is effective, it will be accepted and will welcome many more to seek treatment. I ‘am also puzzled with the great humanitarians of the acupuncturist who work tirelessly, for these patients, as there are only so few of them but willing to render their service at any time without fail.

    Thank you for the sharing, hope to visit and contribute something for the project and do wish the program will continue to support and help the needy.

    There is a saying rich men have dreams. Poor men die to make them come true. When one is rich they take things for granted, nothing is valued to them and don’t appreciate things but definitely not the poor. The rich will derive motivation from their financial success, and refuse the belief that money begets corruption. To say it simple the rich will do things where else the poor can’t. People born with a golden spoon will not know much the sufferings the poor had gone through. When the rich understand the pain and sufferings of the poor they will be more responsible and generous to do more for charity. The rich working up from nothing to riches will know more and be successful in life. To me rich at heart is more important , good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings to have. Well survey work of the rich and the poor for us to understand better between the difference.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    All Buddhist practitioners or of others faith deserve to have religious freedom of their choice to what they want to pray. The ban on Dorje Shugden practice is unnecessary and illogical till to this day. The ban created by the Tibetan Leadership has cause much suffering to many people around the world. It is time for more people to speak up against this Dorje Shugden ban that has caused disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries divided and so forth. The Tibetan Leadership not only make life harder for others but to themselves as well. They should accept their own failures not blaming others after all , they have been using the donations, for their benefits. Since coming to exile in India, they were given land , funds and so forth from many countries to help them yet they misused it.
    At this present time, what is most important is to lift the ban so as all practitioner be at peace and harmony , be true to themselves regardless of their choice of practice. Live life on own terms, not someone else’s, that’s makes life happy.
    All this while HH Dalai Lama have been promoting inter religious peace, harmony and understanding across the world yet when coming to Dorje Shugden practitioners it is not true in reality.
    I do hope the ban of Dorje Shugden’s practice will soon come to an end.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

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
