Dogs in Tibetan Monasteries

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

I love dogs. I’ve loved dogs since I was a young boy. I love other animals too, but dogs will always have a special place in my heart. When I joined the monastery, to my surprise I found that almost every Lama has dogs in their Ladrang, and the students would take very good care of the Lama’s dogs.

One time, during a teaching in the monastery, my teacher said that he would collect more merits by taking care of his Guru’s dogs compared to giving a Dharma talk. That statement caught me off guard, and the meaning is deep. It reflected not only my teacher’s great Guru devotion, but also taught me that the dogs were very dear to the Lamas, just like family members.

I want everyone to read this interview with His Eminence Gonsar Rinpoche about dogs in Tibetan monasteries. Gonsar Rinpoche shares a little about the history of Tibetan dogs, and also talks about the topics of reincarnation and karma. This article brought back memories of the time I was living in Gaden and the dogs that used to live in my Ladrang… Sadly, they have all passed away from natural causes. 

Do read this very interesting and informative article and let me know what you thought of it.

TTouch Prac Sandra Klein Interviews Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche About Dogs in Tibetan Monasteries

While teaching an Advanced TTouch training to our Swiss companion animal practitioners last September, TTouch Practitioner Sandra Klein told me about an interview she had done with a Tibetan Rinpoche, asking him about his connection to Tibetan Spaniels and Buddhist thinking about dogs. Sandra breeds Tibetan Spaniels and you can also enjoy her photos of spectacular Swiss landscapes at Tibetan Spaniel.ch

Until I met Sandra’s dogs in Switzerland, I’d known only Tibetan Terriers – one who was one of the smartest dogs I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I checked out Wikipedia’s description to see the difference between Tibetan Terriers and Tibetan Spaniels:

From Wikipedia:

The Tibetan Terrier is not a member of the terrier group, the name being given to it by European travelers to Tibet who were reminded of terriers from back home when they first encountered the breed. Its origins are uncertain: Some sources… claim them to be lucky temple dogs, whereas others… place them as farm dogs.

The Tibetan Terrier is a dog with many uses, able to guard, herd, and also be a suitable companion dog. Their utility in Tibet meant that the first examples of the breed available in the west were generally given as gifts, as the Tibetan Terrier, along with other Tibetan breeds, were too valuable to the people who owned them to casually sell. As such, the early history of the breed is linked to only a handful of foundation dogs.

The Tibetan name for the breed, Tsang Apso, roughly translates to “shaggy or bearded (apso) dog, from the province of Tsang”. Some old travelers’ accounts give the name “Dokhi Apso,” or “outdoor” Apso, indicating a working dog which lives outdoors. Other “Apso” dogs from Tibet include the smaller and more familiar Lhasa Apso (called the Lhasa Terrier in the early 1900s) and the very rare Do Khyi Apso (bearded Tibetan Mastiff, sometimes considered as a TT/TM cross.)

Recent DNA analysis has concluded that the Tibetan Terrier is descended from the most ancient dog breeds.

Gonsar Rinpoche with Tibetan Spaniel

Here is Sandra Klein’s interview with the Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche about Tibetan Spaniels and Tibetan Dog Breeds

Le Mont-Pèlerin, September 23, 2009, © Rabten Choeling and Sandra Klein

 

Q: Venerable Rinpoche, could you please tell us about the various Tibetan dog breeds and how they are called by the Tibetans?

A: “Do Khyi” means “a chained dog”. These large fierce dogs guard the houses and goods of their owners. The best Do Khyis are also called “Sang Khyi” after their origin Sangri, which is south of Lhasa.

Lhasa Apsos as well as Tibetan Terriers are quite widely spread. They can be found with people in Lhasa as well as with nomads.

The Tibetan Spaniels are also called “Simkhyi”, which means house dog, room dog or even bedroom dog. They are the dogs of highest order and are being kept as Lama’s dogs or with the aristocrats. The Tibetan Spaniel is a lively dog with a good length of nose. Jemtse Apso, meaning shaven Apso, is not a name used in Tibet for Tibetan Spaniels.

“Gya Khyi” is what we call a Pekingese dog. This dog is very popular with monks and aristocrats. The Gya Khyis have very flat noses and they don’t move much. They differ from Tibetan Spaniels mainly due to the flat nose and the long and extensive coat.

“Haba” is the Mongolian word for small dog. This expression is being used for all small dog breeds.

The name “Bora” is not familiar to me.

Tibetan Terriers are also called “Rapso” which means goat-haired.

“Sha Khyis” look like short-haired huskies. They also have a curled tail and pointed ears, but no blue eyes. They are mainly herd dogs which move around freely. They protect the herds from wolves and help drive the herd. Sometimes they are also used for hunting (not FCI recognized).

“Go Khyi” is the jewel amongst Tibetan dog breeds. About one percent of vultures are Tibetan bearded vultures (tib: Gowo), which lay three eggs: the first with a snake, the second with a dog and the third with a bird. If you ever hear a dog bark high up in the mountains near a bearded vulture’s nest, you will find a very small dog there. This dog is called “Go Khyi” and is the most respected dog in Tibet (not FCI recognized).

 

Q: Often we can read that Lhasa Apsos and Tibetan Spaniels are considered as holy dogs by the monks. What is behind that?

A: We believe that any human or even a Buddha, a Bodhisattva or any other high being can be re-incarnated as a dog to help these beings. You cannot see this from the outside. Therefore we treat all creatures with much respect.

There are many Lamas in high positions who were and still are dog lovers. I can show you many pictures of Lamas with Tibetan Spaniels. Often the dogs sit next to the Lamas or on their laps. As the Lamas often sit still for a long time and meditate, the dogs feel very comfortable on their laps.

These dogs often behave very much like human beings. I had for example a Lhasa Apso which turned almost 18 years old. This dog gagged for cats, other dogs and puppies. Once when he had to do his business and could not go outside, he got hold of a piece of paper and went on the paper. When babies were visiting and they started to cry, he would go to them, console them and try to comfort them. He clearly showed traits of compassion and altruistic behaviour.

 

Q: How do dogs live in Tibetan monasteries? What are the daily routines of a small dog compared to a Do Khyi? How are they fed? Where do they sleep?

A: This question is not being put entirely correct. In the large university monasteries such as Sera, Drepung or Ganden, the house rules forbid and continue to forbid the keeping of animals. Even the high order Lamas are not allowed to have dogs.

Often large packs of half wild dogs live around the monasteries. These are often mixes of various dog breeds. As the monks, like all Tibetans, like dogs, they look after them. They feed them and observe them, and the young monks play with the puppies. People say that these dogs live so close to the monasteries because they sinned as monks and by karmic consequence they are now re-born as dogs. Because of their past, they stay close to the monasteries.

In remote smaller monasteries, dogs play an important role. I have my own monastery, the Gonsar monastery, which is located far away in the mountains of Lhasa. The Do Khyis are kept there for protection from thieves and other attacks. They are attached on both sides of the entrance. It is very impressive to pass near these big animals barking with their thunderous voices, jumping up and down, and being held back only by the chains.

Unlike the Do Khyis, small dogs are allowed to move around freely and follow their masters everywhere. This way they can take part in the rituals, prayers and mantras of their masters and absorb its effects.

Often Tibetan Spaniels accompany their master to the Koras. These are clockwise walks around sacred monuments which the Buddhists complete, praying and sometimes prostrating. It is amazing how healthy old people who regularly do their Koras are. The dogs always take part in these rituals. Sometimes, in earlier times, people also took “saved” sheep and goats with them to the Koras. These animals were decorated with special jewellery on the ears – red wool and small bells.

Often during the rituals, tormas (small figurines made out of roasted barley flour known as tsampa) and butter are offered. After the rituals, the tormas are given to the big ravens on the roofs and to the dogs in front of the monastery.

Tibetan dogs mainly eat tsampa and leftovers. The small dogs are particularly keen on “pag” fed from the hand. Pag is tsampa mixed with butter. Every Tibetan eats pag at least once a day. The Do Khyis are fed on tsampa in large bowls. From time to time, tsampa is cooked in broth from bones and a bone is added.

Snow leopards are a big threat to the small dogs: The snow leopards jump on the roofs of houses during the night and grab small dogs. (Tibetan houses have flat roofs which are used as terraces.) The snow leopard smells the small dogs and, when the leopard approaches the house, the dogs go on the roofs to peek and bark. That is when the leopard attacks and grabs the dog easily. That is why sometimes we also call snow leopards as dog leopards. I have lost a Shar Khyi that way. The Do Khyis only sometimes win a fight against a snow leopard. If that happens, the snow leopard will never return to that place.

The nunneries very much rely on the protection of Do Khyis. Without their Do Khyis, the nuns would be vulnerable to danger.

Large properties are also often guarded by groups of Do Khyis, with one group on each side of the house.

I was born into a Tibetan aristocratic family. Most of these families keep Tibetan Spaniels. Pekingese dogs are also popular with aristocrats. The dogs are treated as members of the family and often sleep in the bed of their owner; my dogs sleep in my bed with me.

 

Q: Is it possible that a monk re-incarnates, by humbleness, as a monastery dog?

A: This is unlikely. A dog’s life offers much less possibilities than a human life. But it is possible that a monk fails and as a consequence re-incarnates as a dog. Life as a dog is not so bad. Dogs are known for their enormous fidelity and loyalty towards their masters. Often, dogs also show empathetic and caring behaviour. And, in general, dogs are also well cared for. So that’s not a bad life at all!

 

Q: What’s the reason behind a dog being born as a dog and not as a cat?

A: All phenomena are a consequence of causes created in the past. When the external conditions are fulfilled, it comes to a manifestation. So there is always a cause behind every effect. I would say that the value of an existence as a dog follows right behind that of a human being. To be born as a dog is much more positive than to be born as a cat. Dogs generally do not kill other animals, while most cats frequently kill insects and other animals frequently.

 

Q: How can we help our dogs to develop spiritually?

A: By letting them take part in our spiritual life; dogs feel the rituals, mantras and prayers. This puts wholesome marks on their spiritual continuum and helps them lead a happy and fulfilling life.

 

Q: How long does it take until a dog who died can return to us?

A: The main question is, if the dog re-incarnates again as a dog. From one incarnation to the next one, it takes 49 days.

 

Q: I would like to ask you also about dog breeding. Obviously, Tibetan Spaniels were being bred to look like little lions. Are there dog breeders among the Lamas? What are the selection criteria amongst parent animals, in particular regarding looks and character?

A: It is true that Tibetan Spaniels look like little lions. If a dog lives alone, he will not normally have any puppies. If dogs live in a group, they will likely breed. We let nature take care of itself.

It can happen that a Do Khyi bitch is brought to a very good Do Khyi sire. The appearance should not be over-estimated.

Let me tell you a short story, which describes the relationship of the Tibetans to their dogs. I am friends with a Tibetan family who lived in Switzerland. They had a St. Bernard. This dog resembles in many ways the ideal Do Khyi: very big body, big head and impressive bark. When the parents retired, they went back to Tibet. The children stayed in Switzerland. However, the parents took the dog back to Tibet with them, where he received a lot of attention and admiration. When people noticed he was a very gentle dog, they were surprised and said: Why do you keep a dog that neither barks nor defends its owner but still eats a lot?

 

Q: Could you please tell us something about the different colours of the dogs?

A: For guard dogs, Tibetans prefer black and tan. The dark colour usually impresses intruders the most. The spots above the eyes also give the impression that the dogs are awake, even when they are asleep. Furthermore, the “four eyes” also see demons and protect the houses and their occupants.

With respect to Tibetan Spaniels, the black and tan colours are also very popular. However, mostly we like black dogs with a white spot on their chest. The white spot on the chest stands for a pure heart. What we don’t like to see is a white tail-end, as we associate this with stolen tsampa. White feet are acceptable. A white spot on the forehead is also an auspicious sign. We call this a Buddha Mark, a sign of Buddha. We also like yellow and gold-coloured dogs.

 

Q: What do you recommend to western dog keepers and breeders?

A: Nowadays, there are tendencies to exaggeration. That is never good. It is selfish and childish to shape beings according to our own wishes. My recommendation is to keep the Tibetan dog breeds as they are: healthy and robust and adapted to their life-task.

I don’t think it is good to feed them with much meat. Today, it always has to be meat. This can cause disease.

I also regret that dog owners are willing to put their sick dogs to sleep. That is like killing a member of the family. Of course, we should help the animal and keep him from suffering. But often it is a selfish decision, as we are not able to cope with the illness, additional work and suffering at hand. Death always causes suffering; we cannot escape that.

 

Q: Could you imagine continuing the tradition of breeding temple dogs?

A: You cannot really speak of temple dogs. However, you could call the Do Khyis temple dogs as they guard temples. I would call the Tibetan Spaniel a Lama dog or a Lama lap dog. As I already have two dogs, I do not want to have any more for the time being.

 

Q: Could I please ask you to organise a “Tibbie-meeting” at Mont Pelerin with all the Tibetan dog breeds and their owners present? The dog owners and their dogs would like to hand you a “Khata”.

A: Once we finish the building of the new temple, I would be very happy to welcome you. We can then take a tour of the monastery and have a Tibetan meal.

I thank you most Venerable Rinpoche from my heart and hope that this interview will be spread around the world for the good of many people and their dogs.

 

About Gonsar Rinpoche

The present Gonsar Rinpoche was born in 1949 in Shigatse, Tibet, to an aristocratic family known to be descendants of the ancient Tibetan kings. At that time his father was governor of the province Tsang, in western Tibet. At the age of three Gonsar Rinpoche was recognized as the fifth incarnation in the line of the Gonsar Rinpoches, which was confirmed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. At the age of six he entered Sera monastery, the second largest Monastic University of Tibet at that time. From the very beginning he was raised and tutored under the kind care of Venerable Geshe Rabten. Gonsar Rinpoche received a great number of teachings and transmissions from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and many other masters, in particular from his root gurus Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and the Venerable Geshe Rabten.

In 1959, when Tibet fell under the power of Red China, Gonsar Rinpoche fled with his master to India and continued his studies there. At the same time he learnt English and Hindi. In 1969 he started to translate into English the Buddhist teachings given to western students by his master Geshe Rabten. Ever since the Venerable Geshe Rabten passed away in 1986, Gonsar Rinpoche, after spending thirty-three years as his closest disciple, has continued his master’s activities. At present Gonsar Rinpoche is the director of the center ‘Rabten Choeling’ in Mont Pèlerin, as well as the centers in Austria and Germany. He gives regular teachings directly in French, English, German or Tibetan.

The first Gonsar Rinpoche was famous for his particularly vast and profound teachings on the complete path of mental development to full enlightenment. The present Gonsar Rinpoche is renowned as one of the very few contemporary masters capable of transmitting every aspect of the Buddha’s teachings as a clear and moving experience to Western as well as Tibetan audiences.

  1. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 17, 2018 at 4:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this most interesting article.

    The following are aspects of this article that I find particularly interesting.This article shows us how the dogs of Tibetan Lamas are very dear to them and as close to them as any member of the family. We see this in the way Gonsar Rinpoche treats his dog and in the way Tsem Rinpoche treated Mumu . Dogs do not generally kill other animals or even insect, unlike cats. As Gonsar Rinpoche says, the value of an existence of a dog follows right behind that of a human being. Dogs are known for their loyalty to their masters. They are also known to show empathetic and caring behaviour. In fact, they are often quite like humans in their behaviour.

    Dogs in a Tibetan Lama’s care are also exposed to ‘spiritual’ training and care.They are allowed to participate in daily spiritual activities such as rituals, mantras and prayers.This will leave wholesome effects on their ‘spiritual continuum’ and lead them to a happy and fulfilling life.

    This compassionate approach to caring for their pet dogs is also reinforced by their respect of them as holy beings, prompted by the belief that they may be emanations of a Buddha or Bodhisattva in order to help these beings.

    Tibetan dogs eat mainly Tsampas and leftovers. Feeding them meat is discouraged. Meat carries diseases, says Gonsar Rinpoche, a point which is valid. Gonsar Rinpoche regrets that there are people who would put their sick dogs to sleep.For animal lovers, like Gonsar Rinpoche, this is like putting a family member to sleep. Death always causes suffering and in the larger scheme of things, where karma plays an important role, death is not reducing suffering in the longer term. From the side of the human carer, it would appear to be a selfish act of wanting to reduce their own suffering of having to care for their sick pet long term.

    Yes, this article makes me think more deeply about the relationship between man and his pet in comparison with that between him and a close human friend. The thinner or fainter the demarcation between man and animals, the more genuine is the nature of the love and compassion .

  2. Stella Cheang on May 27, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    Fascinating to read about the relationship of Tibetan Lamas and their dogs, or dogs in general. Tibetan Lamas, who are kind and compassionate, are forthcoming in displaying their affection towards the furry friends, especially dogs (in relativity to cats) because to be born as a dog will less likely to incur more negative karma than that of a cat. Dogs generally do not go about killing while cats possess that tendency. If showered with care, compassion in a holistic Buddhism manner, for example chanting mantra or performing ritual with the animals, the furry friends can also develop some level of spirituality by having these imprints in them.

  3. Lin Mun on Mar 23, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    This is a very informative articles on dogs in monasteries and Tibetan breed. Gonsar Rinpoche explained it very clearly on the different breeds and how dogs are taken care and live in monasteries. We should also take good care of the dogs as they are living being in different form. Hence we should take care of their food and their well beings and not treat them like an ‘item’ to reject or discard them when our selfish mind arise.

    The difference between cats and dogs:
    Dogs: “My owners feed me, play with me, give me a home, take care of me when I’m sick – they must be gods.”
    Cats: “My owners feed me, play with me, give me a home, take care pof me when I’m sick – they must think I am a god.”

  5. Marek on Jan 6, 2017 at 12:26 am

    there are lots of articles and interesting footage online of Burmese monks training cats – what a test of patience!
    Cats appearing to be so indifferent & so mercenary – cats have a parasite in their faeces which leads to people developing the Crazy Cat Lady syndrome:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis#.22Crazy_cat-lady_syndrome.22
    as a child, we had a neighbour who was a crazy cat lady, after her husband had died, children grew up – sadly, after acquiring over a dozen cats, her children and neighbours started visiting her less and less, she ended up all alone, her cats only appearing to care about when they were being fed – seems keeping cats to keep mice and rats away has now become obsolete, people keep them as pets instead – how sad there are big populations of stray dogs and cats that can become a nuisance – often causing environmental damage – many places they get rounded up and shot or at least caught, neutered then released

  6. Marek on Jan 5, 2017 at 5:43 pm

    I had the great good fortune of meeting Gonsar Rinpoche (& his Mama – always giving people sweets) having a private audience with him many years ago, so intelligent (multi lingual), hard working, well organised, compassionate and understanding – he received his English education at a Christian missionary school in India, and as such has a deep insight into Christianity too, there were yaks in the garden of Rabten Choeling.
    On another note – a dog can only be as good as how well it has been trained – dogs can be trained for hunting, to find missing people, as rescue dogs, sniffer dogs for smuggled items at airports, guide dogs for the blind and deaf, police dogs, army dogs, different breeds for different purposes, sad that many “pure bred” pedigree dogs suffer from congenital disorders brough on about by inbreeding to keep their bloodline pure, whereas “mongrels” are far less likely to have such defects, wild dogs? Can’t say anything about them.
    I am TERRIFIED of all dogs – I was allergic to them as a child and nearly had my bottom lip bitten off by a dog that I’d befriended – I find it hard to go to people’s houses that keep dogs indoors or that are permitted in the kitchen, in bedrooms, on furniture, or are treated like substitute babies – dogs don’t clean themselves and spend a lot of time with their noses in each other’s posteriors . . . it’s just the dog’s nature, not their fault, more so something their owners have to be aware of.

  7. Samfoonheei on Oct 26, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    Very interesting article. There is so much to learn from this article.
    Dogs are a man’s best friend that is very true.The Q & A by Sandra Klein’s interview with the Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche about Tibetan Spaniels and Tibetan Dog Breeds was very informative for us to have a much more knowledge and clear picture of the dogs in Tibetan Monasteries.It seem that many Lama continue the tradition of breeding Do Khyis temple dogs as they guard the temples and keep them company. Treat all animals with much respect,love and caring.They do have feelings too like us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.Good advice and reminder.

  8. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 13, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    What a wonderful and light article about Tibetan breed of dogs. Gonsar Rinpoche sure have a lot of information about tibetan dogs, this was an enjoyable read.

  9. Jutika Lam on Dec 17, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    His Eminence Gonsar Rinpoche is someone who is highly accomplished and wise and this interview with Sandra Klien has shown his love towards dogs.

    They say dogs are a man’s best friend and reading this interview along with the many other heartwarming stories I have read here on this blog, I have to agree with that saying.

    I myself did not even know that there were many breeds of Tibetan dogs!

    This article has been really informative in regards to certain rules and customs between Monks and dogs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

  10. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 16, 2015 at 7:06 am

    It is well-known that His Eminence Gonsar Rinpoche is an accomplished scholar and from this interview, this quality is very evident. So the first thing I have to say is that I was absolutely bowled over by the in-depth knowledge that Gonsar Rinpoche has about dogs, and also how detailed and complex the history, background and roles of dogs are in Tibetan society. When you compare it to what the West knows about Tibetan dogs, we have a very diluted version of it – Lhasa Apso and Tibetan mastiffs and really, that’s about it.

    If Rinpoche knows this much about a relatively mundane subject (dogs), can you imagine what else he knows about Buddhist philosophy…?

    I think it’s interesting that Gonsar Rinpoche says it’s not a bad life at all for dogs. I did use to think that if I had to be reborn as an animal, life as a dog (compared to other animals) is a little less suffering, especially if you’re reborn as the dog of a lama. Being reborn as a farm animal means you’re exploited and you suffer until the moment of your death. Being reborn as an animal in the wild means killing over and over again for food. Dogs however, aren’t associated with that image.

    I don’t know what it is but it seems lamas keep dogs more than they do cats. I know Venerable Achok Rinpoche has a dog (Oliver, I believe is his name), and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche has dogs as well as Venerable Rabten Rinpoche. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin also had dogs in Rashi Gempil Ling and of course our Rinpoche has three dogs.

    But perhaps this links up to a story about dogs that was told to me by a Tibetan friend. He said very often, lamas or the lama’s students keep dogs because they have a greater ability to absorb the obstacles of the teacher (he didn’t mean they keep dogs for that purpose, but that it just so happens that dogs appear to do that). He said that many lamas’ dogs often fall ill for no apparent reason, as though the obstacles of the lama’s work ripens upon the animals and they absorb it on the lama’s behalf.

  11. freon on Dec 16, 2015 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very interesting article. The dogs are so close to Tibetan, and also Lama. From the type of breed , color and so on, Gonsar Rinpoche have explained on detail. The dog even can be the guard in nunnery.

    In the article, what caught my attention is the Dog previous’s life can be a monk. And also cats killed more than dogs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article

    Regards
    Freon

    As said, it has been long established that in large University-Monasteries such as Drepung,Sera and Ganden, the house rules forbiding the keeping of animals still stay. Even high Lamas in the said large monasteries are not allowed to have dogs but only in smaller remote monasteries, like Ven. Gonsar Rinpoche’s monasterey, they do. Like the dogs, we as human beings, what we want in life is to have a simple happy live, free from all sufferings and obstacles. It is said that even the Gods envy our human existence for the practise of the Dharma. As humans, we are free from adversed circumstances such as rebirth with wrong views, as a hungry ghost, or Hell being, a longlife god, or as an animal(i.e. a dog) as described in this blog. We are also given the opportunity to prepare, motivate and redeem ourselves to achieve the three spiritual goals of:- (1) A higher rebirth (2) Liberation from cyclic exixtence and, ultimately enlightenment. Unlike dogs, we do not have the presence of ignorance, lack of human intellegience to understand the Dharma. Dharma always teaches us to bring into mindfullness and compassion to what we feel in our hearts and mind. We really feel pitiful for Rinpoche’s lovely dogs, but we believe with Rinpoche’s love, care and blessings, they will have a better chance for a more expeditious good future human rebirth than many animals. Om Mani padme Hung.

    “I would say that the value of an existence as a dog follows right behind that of a human being.” – Gonsar Rinpoche. Now that is very interesting.

    Beautiful art paintings of White Tara , Ushnishavijaya (Namgyalma), Amitayus, Dorje Shugden. In Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara is also known as Jetsun Dölma as a Buddhist saviour-goddess with numerous forms, widely popular in Nepal, Tibet, and Mongolia. She is the protective, helpful and comforting mother who shows limitless kindness, generosity and protection to all who rely on her.

    The importance of cleanliness in our lives cannot be denied. Maintaining a clean environment is for the health of all humans. As our health completely depends on the surrounding atmosphere. The practice of cleaning is not only for the environment, but also for our mind . We can change our recognition of cleaning from something that’s negative to something that’s positive, then our quality of life will improve. The importance of having a clean room, clean environment is to respect the people we invited to. To develop the clear mind, we need to be aware of being very mindful, everything should be clean. Make it as a practice, consistently .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    It’s so rejoiceful to see Mr Yao Ming the professional basketball player use his celebrities platform and reputation to lessen the suffering of others. Mr. Yao Ming speak for the unable to speak for themselves and so rely on us to protect them. Millions of sharks, which are endangered, will be saved thanks to Mr. Yao Ming’s actions. I hope more and more people will be inspired by his example to speak up against cruelty towards animals. With growing awareness of vegetarianism and so many options for food these days, even in mainstream restaurants, there is no need to keep consuming meat or seafood.

    Mount Fanjing in China at 2,572 meters above sea level, is situated in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province. In the 16th century, Mount Fanjing was one of China’s sacred Buddhist mountains. It is said to be the abode of Buddha Maitreya. In recent years, it has again become a popular tourist destination.

    Master Cheng Yen must have a very strong Dharma imprint. Even though in the beginning she did not have a teacher, she knew she wanted to be nun, she wanted to renounce and use her life to serve others. It was not easy to embark on the spiritual journey but it did not scare Master Cheng Yen. She found ways to spread Dharma and she has been very successful.

    Today, Tzu Chu foundation has its presence all around the world. Whenever there is a disaster, they will be the first to offer their help. Their selfless compassion is highly respected and acknowledged by many. This is how much impact one person can make if we walk the talk and show people by example. The most important thing is not to give up and be very determined in serving others.

    Back in 1996, H H Dalai Lama had made a controversial statement about Dorje Shugden that have caused much disharmony, sufferings among Tibetan Buddhism practitioners . The Tibetans were divided into two , families torn apart just as they do not agree and accept the practice of Dorje Shugden. The African Americans of black people and slavery , the women in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and some western U.S. states, slavery are some of the historical similarities with Dorje Shugden ban where they suffered badly such as physical abuses, denied services to hospitals, restaurants , schools and so forth having many signs and boards installed to prohibit them from entering. Those who refused to follow their order or to give up their practice were conform faced torture, imprisonment discrimination and abuse. Tibetans in exile, wicca, pagans and so forth are denied their rights of religious freedom. Everyone should have their own rights to choose what we believe and practice. The Dalai Lama have said that Dorje Shugden cannot harm him , as proven Dorje Shugden is not evil. It is recognised to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and a dharma protector. They (CTA ) should stopped and should not be involved in religion. Allow religious freedom for the sake of all, and future generations to come. Peace and harmony must be maintained, for the growth of a nation.
    Thank you Velentina for this well researched article to bring more awareness and knowledge for many of us and these abroad.

    A beautiful story of guru devotion of a Russian princess Buddhist nun. Very inspiring , she was a Russian-born French-American socialite, film actress, and Gelug Tibetan Buddhist nun. The legendary Zina Rachevsky was the earliest Western student and patron of Lama Yeshe . She came from an incredibly wealthy family, having everything money, fame, beauty yet she was not happy and that triggered her soul-searching. Travelling to India, that’s where she met Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa. That’s the first time they encounters with Westerners and Lama Yeshe was glad to learn that this wealthy lady came to them in search of enlightenment. Zina became the first Western student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa . It was her request and insisted that the Lamas to teach Westerners on Buddhism. She led her life to the fullest from her Hollywood days to renouncing everything.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring article of a princess turned nun.

The Unknown

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

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
