Don’t Buy It!!

Aug 16, 2011 | Views: 2,094

Imagine being taken away from your mother when you’re a few months old… having an iron corset strapped around your stomach… being placed in a cage where, as your body grows, the metal bars start pressing hard against your body…

Twice a day someone comes, sticks a 4 inch needle into your stomach and drains out fluid. The pain is so intense that you gnaw on your hands, writhing in pain… clutching your stomach. No one explains anything, no one cares… and EVERYDAY FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS – that is all you know.

Sounds like a nightmare, doesn’t it? Or one of those freak horror movies that make you squirm and shut your eyes tightly.

This really does happen in today’s world.

The sun bears or honey bears are subject to these tortures for their bile. Bear bile is still used in Chinese medicines that claim to cure mainly eye and liver ailments. Many people claim that the bear’s bile can cure all types of diseases from a small cut to digestive problems to even cancer. It is the active constituent found in bear bile, UrsoDeoxyCholic Acid (UDCA), that these arguments are based on.

I am no scientist, and these arguments might be true – but there are many alternatives. The first synthesized UDCA was made in 1954 in Japan.

UDCA is available in many pharmaceutical brand names including Actigall and Urso (US); Destolit, Urdox, Ursofalk, and Ursogal (UK); Ursotan (South Africa).

Likewise, there are also about 54 herbal alternatives including rhubarb and dandelion!

So why is there a necessity for such cruel treatment?? There are cheaper, more sanitary and healthier alternatives.

News released 3 days ago reported how a company in China, Guizhentang Pharmaceuticals Company, was applying to make their initial public offering (IPO). This is where the public will be able to buy stocks/shares in a company, providing them capital to expand. That is exactly what Guizhentang Pharmaceuticals Company plans are… to expand.

There are currently 400 bears in their bear farm, and they plan on increasing the number to 1200! Guizhentang Pharmaceuticals Company currently have the biggest bear farm in China. And after a few years, when these bears’ bodies stop producing bile, they will be killed for every part of their body imaginable: meat, fur, paws and their actual gall bladder. Bear paws will be on restaurants’ list of delicacies, selling at up to USD250!

In 2000, CNN estimated that there were more than 7,000 bears being kept on 200 farms in China. That is a lot of lives being kept in confined cages.

There are many active groups out there who have people devoting their lives to save these sun bears, including Animals Asia and Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Center. If you have the money, donate, if you have the time, volunteer. If we sit around feeling sorry for these bears but do nothing to help, not making the effort to try, it will not make a difference in the world.

Do take a look at the photos below… these bears don’t need to die to experience hell… Please never harm animals… never. Spread this post around and help create awareness just from your keyboard. Please help.

Named the sun or honey bear because of the crescent shape on the chest and also because they have long tongues and like to lick on honey!

No, it’s not a horror movie.

 

1
This bear was caught wandering around a village….

 

2
An incision was made to open him up…

 

3
The bladder was found and emptied out…

 

7
The search for the gall bladder continues…

 

5
A slit was made into the stomach…

 

4
This bear was killed in the village because he was apparently killing and eating the villagers’ livestock…you can see that it’s all fruit in his stomach.

There is also a green plastic bag – our actions affect others. Next time you throw rubbish onto the ground, do think twice…

 

6
I guess this guy found what he was looking for… a bloody organ filled with fluid…

 

8He opened up a living being for one organ… all for greed

 

BearBile8This is another sun bear pinned down to the ground, you can see that his eyes are wide open while a group of people are trying to extract his bile

 

BearBile7Dried gall bladder

 

BearBile5An iron corset on a sun bear…

 

BearBile3This is the bear bile that is extracted and sold all around the world. They sell them in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Canada… and many other places, but predominantly in those countries…

You don’t want to be caught in a place like this.

    This is so cruel. How can one cut off a living being to extract whatever they want. This poor bear is really in pain and hopeless. I strongly believe they are some other alternative instead of taking the bile. from the bear. Just imagine if someone takes our organ and says it’s for medication purposes, can we accept it? If we say no then it should be no for the bear too and also no for all animals. If we say no because it will cause pain or it’s cruel or it’s harmful, it goes the same to the bear and all the animals.

    The animals can feel pain too. The animals want to be cared for, loved and pampered too. If we can’t give them that but at the very least pls don’t hurt them. They have the right to live peacefully just like us. Stop hurting animals for our selfish attachment.

    We will do whatever that bring us happiness, and long life! We are not wrong, but to gain happiness and health by scarifying another being’s life or well being, that is wrong. Simple, how do we feel when our lives are interrupted and destroyed?

    horrible horrible horrible sadness

  4. Edward Ooi on Dec 19, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I don’t know why won’t they feel ashamed for killing all these precious animals. If they keep on killing these precious animals, one day the animals will become extinct. They will never know the suffering of the animals unless they get treated like animals. I know that speaking in this way is rude but I have no other way to explain it.

  5. Patsy on Nov 6, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    This is so inhuman!!!! Shocking!!! So much pain and sufferings for these bears so that the company can make a huge profit!!! Heartless!!! We must create more awareness through social media so that more people may realize how these animals had to go through the nightmare and let’s help stopped this barbaric actions!

  6. Tong sunsun on Nov 6, 2013 at 8:29 am

    在我还很小时,母亲常买熊胆给我们吃,说什么可以清血消毒。现在才知道这动作是很错误的。当然我母亲是出之爱护我们的心,而且当时的保护动物意识不深,所以也不能怪她。只是现在的我会告诉其他人停止食用类似的补品。

  7. tenzinkhenchen on Apr 28, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    So many animals harmed for what? A medicinal benefit? Bah! Eat a root! It is usually healthier. One is unable to get any form of benefit from harming others. Even if you get a temporary health benefit, the negative karma created will create more suffering in the future. Stop the murders of innocent bears!

  8. beatrix ooi on Apr 17, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    This is so disgusting! I really can’t imagine myself being sliced alive, it’s so cruel. And after that, they just leave their carcasses revealed with all the blood and organs. It’s really a very cruel and horrible thing to do, people have collected so much negative karma. I hope people will stop buying the biles because it’s also a way to discourage teh killings.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  9. Sharon Saw on Feb 17, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    This is a horrific story – and i don’t know if i feel worse for the bears who are suffering or the humans who are imposing the suffering because of the karma they are creating. The bears may be living out their karma but the humans are creating their future karma which will be awful – perhaps the karma of being reborn as one of the bears having to live in such conditions and killed for something completely irrelevant. Thank you for highlighting this and if more and more people are aware of this hideous practice, i hope people will stop consuming bear bile and the demand will reduce. I will share this on facebook and hope people will continue to share it.

    Poor bears. How can humans expect the bears not to harm us when we are the ones who have been killing them for decades? And it all happened just because of us, wanting their gall bladders and biles. What kind of medicine is that if we have to take away the lives of the animals just to make one medicine??

  11. Paris on Feb 6, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    This is just so awful – how much excruciating pain humans will put another being through for the tiny benefit that they can get back. Worse yet is the fact that there are other supplements available in the world today that bring about the same benefits and cure – so this is entirely unnecessary.

    It frightens me to think of the experimentation that even goes into this in the first place – how do people suddenly think and “discover” that bear bile would be beneficial? This would mean that thousands of bears must have been experimented on, chopped up and dissected and various parts “tried out” to gauge the effects on humans… how many bears’ lives must have been wasted in vain, for perhaps they didn’t find anything in experimenting upon them…. and more frightening to think that this kind of experimenting could still be going on now – more bears and more animals being chopped up to see “what they’re good for”. Horrible, horrible, horrible.

    How does all this justify anything really? And is our health really so so so so so important that we would put thousands of other lives through this for the sake of ours? What makes one of our lives more important than the thousands of bears? And could you live with the fact that your life and ‘health’ has been made possible only by the death and pain of so many others? What kind of quality of life is that?!

  12. sarahyap on Jan 30, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Oh my goodness… such a horrible fate to be in… Poor bears, even after all the years being brought up to love our soft toys (which often in the form of a bear…) and still something so heartless like this can happen.

    How disappointing to see people behaving like animals. Why do they believe in animals only? Because all they think of is satisfying their desire for money. It does not matter what desire it is, but if we make ourselves do harmful things to others just for the sake of money, then that is a clear indication that we let our desire overtake our logic sense.

  13. Lucas Roth on Dec 17, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    These poor bears! i will never do this in my life and why do humans kill for good medicines and good taste, if one being has to die for it that is just sick !

  14. Julien Roth on Nov 22, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    How can people do this to bears around the world, what have they done to you? Nothing. People just take their lives for their own personal reasons. I really cannot take things like this happening all around the world anymore. It has to stop soon. Anyone can make a difference.

    BE VEGETARIAN. Thats all it takes to help animals around the world. Thank you for sharing the pictures Rinpoche.

  15. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Hard to believe that human beings can be so cruel that for the sake for gaining wealth, they impose great pains onto animals.

    Cannot imagine how lives can be like to be locked up in a cage perpetually for the next 25 years and to have body fluid to be drained out twice a day.

    Businesses run on concept of profitability and supply vs demand formula. When there is no profit, lesser and lesser people will do them until there is eventually none.

    Clearly, education plays an important role in this. The more people can recognise the cruelty of this action and the potential alternatives to bile, the faster this situation can improve.

  16. JP on Jun 28, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    This is really horrible and inhumane. There are so many herbs that can heal the body why resort to torturing another living being to do the same job??? The world needs to see this and stop such barbaric practices immediately!!!

  17. June Tang(ksjc) on May 20, 2012 at 11:58 am

    太慘酷了!為了達到目地,不擇手段..這種行為太自私太令人法指!難到沒有其他的藥物能夠代替熊膽與熊汁嗎?沒有更好的方式來對待它們嗎?捫心自問–人類喜歡得到這樣的對待嗎?
    己所不欲,勿施于其他眾生!!貪心與私心已經蒙閉了他們的眼睛與良心,多行不益必自斃!

  18. Chin Fei on Aug 18, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    This is ridiculously cruel! I really cant imagine how could these cold-blooded human beings could do such things to other beings like animals?! We, human, because of greed, these animals are forced to live the way we want and could die anytime without knowing. How unfair? Animals do have the right to live also!

    It seems that IPO wants to expand rapidly by increasing 3x numbers of existing bears, which also means that the market requirements are also increasing..This is so scary…I hope certain legal actions can be enforced in China to stop such animal cruelty. Compassion should take over ignorance.

  19. Wendyyyho on Aug 17, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Ignorance is so deep that people can’t differentiate what is right and what is wrong anymore. Some people still think that torturing animals to feed selfish needs is normal and animals exist to serve that need. On the other hand to let go of lucrative business opportunity to make money even if it means being humane and kindness to other beings does not make business sense. Imagine IPO for a company that rear bears for their bile! This is cruelty and selfishness beyond words.

  20. Benji on Aug 17, 2011 at 8:59 am

    i felt faint, just looking at the pictures; i felt like crying – i cannot imagine how people could be so cruel! i dare not imagine the karmic retributions the perpetrators will face in future! Om Mani Peme Hung for the victims and perpetrators. We must really tell more others to stop buying the stuff!

  21. ysng on Aug 16, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Reading this made me realize that I need to know where my medicines come from. Knowing or not knowingly we may be supporting their actions which create harm and suffering. We would inadvertently have to bear some of the negative karma since the product was made for us consumers.

  22. Uncle Eddie on Aug 16, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Life is really a nightmare that entails fear, stress, depression, hopelessness and sufferings to the weak and powerless. To these sufferers, like the sun bears and the honey bears, as the blog said, they can only squirm and shut their eyes tightly and pretend they are in a nightmare horror dream, but never be able to awaken in realty, except to experience through hell of tortures and intensed pains until the last drop of their bile has been extracted out, ” to provide cheaper, more sanitary and healtheir alternatives for the benefit of human beings and their extensived profits of greed”!! Worldwide powerful authorities and/or governmental control of countries’ laws which prohibited the legality of such trade under the appendix of the convention of international trade of endangered species of wild Fauna and flora(cities), should shut down such illegal business of bear farms, and severedly prosecute the illegal sales or purchases of these animal products in the market irrespective. As declared by Dr. Jill Robinson, Founder of Animals Asia Foundations, that even legal bear bile producers are circumventing domestic and international regulations by exporting internationally, should take drastic measure to close down such business to save the bears from ultimate extinction!! “Om mani padmi hum.”

    Interesting article indeed tells us a thousand words of a Great Lama . When Lama Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa was born many people witnessed numerous auspicious sign. He could understand and memorized complicated texts at a very young age proving that he was someone very special. He received many teachings and tantric initiations from many great masters of different lineages. Many of Lama Tshongkhapa’s teachings were composed through the instructions and inspiration of deities and masters appearing in pure vision. Tsongkhapa was a prolific author of tantric literature, composing and gave teaching to many of what he had discovered. Tsongkhapa’s fame as a great scholar and realized practitioner was well known and respected by many all over Tibet and China. Even the Yongle Emperor of the Chinese Ming Dynasty invited him to give teachings. Interesting article to understand better of this Great Lama.

    Trulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an important Gelugpa lama who gave up his life to arise as the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen , who had reincarnated lifetime after lifetime to benefit all beings. He and the Fifth Dalai Lama had shared a very respectful and close relationship. He was one of the most highly respected and sought-after Lamas of the land. He was deeply learned and well-versed in scriptures, and also having received many direct visions of deities and exalted Gurus. Rare and very precious secret writings of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen can be found in Music Delighting an Ocean of Protectors. He was truly a great teacher of all time.

    Reading again this article to get a better understanding of the significance of placing our Dharma statues and items in the correct order. Nor matter what the statues made of we have to respect it and placing correctly. In the Buddhist tradition, statues are created to represent Buddha. Each Buddha image represents the spirit of the teachings of Buddha. Each statue features common physical attributes, poses, and postures that define its purpose and meaning.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    nteresting read of a great Lama Tsarchen Losal Gyatso who is the founder of the Sakya tradition. One of the three branches of the Sakya School, which is part of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting story of how his illness was occurred and meeting the mysterious lady at monastery courtyard well. The lady who gave him a small Tibetan pecha manuscript wrapped in cloth before vanishing. Apparently Vajrayogini had appeared to him leading him to the great master Doringpa at Tashi Lhunpo. Since then he studied with 63 masters of all traditions. He had travelled tremendously to various place to perform great deeds, giving teachings and benefiting all whom he encountered along his journey.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this wonderful sharing.

    interesting read of Kentrul Thubten Lamsang Rinpoche, one of our Guru previous life. He was one of the most important disciples of Kyabje Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. Kentrul Rinpoche had spent many years in remote areas like Phari on the Tibet-India border. Where he worked tirelessly to improve the condition of local monasteries and built large Buddha statues. He even built a three-storey statue of Maitreya Buddha. Highly respected by many locals and remembered by monks of the monastery for his work. Kentrul Rinpoche was also known for performing extensive pujas for people of the area. Kentrul Rinpoche will always be remembered as the lama who remained devoted to his teacher until his final moments. He went out of his way to help the sufferings, in desperate situations. His is a legacy that is timeless and beyond compare. Both Kentrul Rinpoche and our Guru Tsem Rinpoche’s activities did exhibit an unquenchable thirst and curiosity for Dharma, Guru devotion . Both have the similarities after-all. Interesting read, shared by Pastor Jean Ai on Tsem Rinpoche ‘s previous reincarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Very interesting article of great Lamas whom I never find it bored reading over and over again. Anything related to history had me feeling excited.
    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was a great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar. He was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama’s time. Even more than three hundred years ago he was eliminated yet he continued reincarnating until present day as been confirmed by many great beings. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen in fulfilling the promise he made to Nechung protector arose as World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden, merely to serve the teachings of Je Tsongkapa and sentient beings. After realising the mistakes done by his officers 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel and even composed a prayers texts to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. He named the Chapel as Trode Khangsar which still exist to this day at Lhasa, Tibet .May more people reading this article to understand more who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was. An interesting read.

    The Kangxi Emperor was the third emperor of the Qing dynasty. He is considered by historians to be one of the greatest emperors in the history of China. Having ruled China over 61 years, he was the longest-reigning Chinese emperors in dynastic history. He was thought of as one of the greatest emperors because, under his rule, the Qing empire started to prosper, dynastic succession was stabilized, and he was comparatively benevolent. He was also highly educated and was known as a hardworking emperor who ruled diligently. His rule was a period of expansion, stability, and prosperity for the Chinese Empire. Kangxi gave religious freedom to all religions and had sponsored many literary works, monasteries, monks and teachers all over China, Tibet and Mongolia. He was considered an extremely modern Emperor at that time whom was loved by many. He was said to be the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Manjushri as recorded in the ancient scriptures.

    The unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa was proclaimed to be Sonam Yeshe Wangpo. From birth, he spoke with clairvoyance and seemed to remember people and events of his past life. Even as a young man , he travelled tremendously as part of his retinue, with the 3rd Dalai Lama and gave various teachings as well. Throughout the journey, he had even composed verses to praise and commentaries on the teachings.

    Spirits and unseen beings are everywhere not only actually restricted to specific areas. Places such as cemeteries, abandoned houses or places where death occurred. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eye, but for some they could see it or sense their presence. Many people of different faith reported having experienced sense the presence of spirits. Interesting rather scary reading Steven Wong ghostly experienced in the motel . I have encounter such before staying in hotel . More scary I can say. That’s past history, since coming to Buddhism I am not scare at all , I will recite DS Mantra . Later do prayers and dedicate to them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this article written by Tsering Shakya, again as it tells us more and understand better of the situation suffered by Tibetan people. Due to the Dorje Shugden controversy many Tibetans suffered . Many of them migrated to other countries to the west for better opportunities. Tibetan culture and identity is inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism. Somehow once in a foreign land they tend to lose their traditions and cultures slowly over times. Living in foreign land , it difficult to maintain their true identity. For them Tibetans maintaining links to the homeland presents a very unique challenges tasks. If only the Tibetan leadership more opened, forgo the past and accepts as what HH Dalai Lama said that Dorje Shugden is no evil and do no harm. Tibetan Buddhist could continue practicing the Dorje Shugden’s practice. Tibetan should stand united to protect the Tibetan heritage and culture instead discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners so much so had divided the Tibetans. Many of them left and migrated else where to look for better livelihood.
    Tsem Rinpoche had gone through a rough time , rejected twice from the moment of birth from Taiwan to US and travelling to India where Rinpoche found a place called home then. Later to Malaysia as advice by his Guru.
    To this end, the discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners must end for the sake of the all Tibetans living in India and Nepal .
    A very good article by Tsering Shakya, more people should read it to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

A great painter that have put a lot of work into it and it has paid off .

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.
    5 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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment
