Freedom the amazing

Dear friends,

I came across this incredible touching story and had to blog it. It shows our deep and close relationship with so many living beings that we would have never imagined. It is important to realize our life is short and to give it purpose without bringing harm to any living being.

Please read this story and share it with others. Animals matter also and Freedom shows us this. Remember to care for all animals, never hurt them and never bring harm.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Freedom and Jeff Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places. She’s my baby.

When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vet’s office. From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was winning. She was going to be put down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized; but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle. She was ready to live. I was just about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

We knew she could never fly, so the director asked me to glove train her. I got her used to the glove, and then to jesses, and we started doing education programs for schools in western Washington . We wound up in the newspapers, radio (believe it or not) and some TV. Miracle Pets even did a show about us.

In the spring of 2000, I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I had stage 3, which is not good (one major organ plus everywhere), so I wound up doing 8 months of chemo. Lost the hair – the whole bit. I missed a lot of work When I felt good enough, I would go to Sarvey and take Freedom out for walks. Freedom would also come to me in my dreams and help me fight the cancer. This happened time and time again.

 

Fast forward to November 2000

The day after Thanksgiving, I went in for my last checkup. I was told that if the cancer was not all gone after 8 rounds of chemo, then my last option was a stem cell transplant Anyway, they did the tests; and I had to come back Monday for the results. I went in Monday, and I was told that all the cancer was gone.

So the first thing I did was get up to Sarvey and take the big girl out for a walk. It was misty and cold. I went to her flight and jessed her up, and we went out front to the top of the hill. I hadn’t said a word to Freedom, but somehow she knew. She looked at me and wrapped both her wings around me to where I could feel them pressing in on my back (I was engulfed in eagle wings), and she touched my nose with her beak and stared into my eyes, and we just stood there like that for I don’t know how long . That was a magic moment. We have been soul mates ever since she came in. This is a very special bird.

On a side note: I have had people who were sick come up to us when we are out, and Freedom has some kind of hold on them. I once had a guy who was terminal come up to us and I let him hold her. His knees just about buckled and he swore he could feel her power course through his body. I have so many stories like that…

I never forget the honor I have of being so close to such a magnificent spirit as Freedom.

    Beautiful story of how Jeff Freedom took a baby eagle in 1998 with two broken wings . Barely could not even stand and both wings were broken. Her physical condition was so bad more she was emaciated and covered in lice. Jeff Freedom made the right decision to give her a chance to live.
    After all nursed and surgery done on this poor eagle, through weeks she still not standing on her own. And it’s a miracle before she was able to stand just a day before she was to be euthanized. With Jeff Freedom’s patience and training the beautiful eagle named Freedom was able to fly. Amazing. The story goes on when Jeff Freedom was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and after been with Freedom , he was cured of his diseases . She is a special bird coming into his dreams and helping Jeff to fight the cancer. A beautiful read truly inspiring , never give up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Love heals….
    It’s not that kind of empty word but it truly shines from the heart, from one being to another. Animals are capable of showinh love and this can’t be denied.

  3. Yee Yin on Oct 4, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    This is such a lovely and heart-warming story between an animal and a human. They supported each other to fight for their lives and then together, they make a difference in other people’s lives!

    Love and compassion don’t have to be expressed by words, it is by action and by the energy we radiate. Animals can feel our motivation, they know if we are hostile or we are friendly to them. When we have their trust, they can be the most loyal friend we will ever have.

    Never hurt another life, be it a human’s life or an animal’s. We can always start with adopting a vegetarian diet so we don’t cause suffering to animals. Besides, a vegetarian diet is way healthier than having meat.

  4. S.Prathap on Aug 29, 2019 at 3:37 pm

    Really amazing to get know the relationship of an eagle and its owner.It is time for human to show kindness and love to the animals.The easiest way to show kindness by not torture them.
    Love is universal even without a single word,it radiates and all beings can feel it.Thank you very much for sharing such a good and an inspirational story to all animals lover.

  5. Callista on Nov 9, 2018 at 12:30 am

    This is really amazing, I never know Freedom (Eagle), can become a soulmate to Jeff Guidry. To the certain extent, their love for each other has created a healing energy.

    All the animals has feeling, which in the story of Jeff Guidry is clearly showed that.
    Now who say that, animal is part of our food and they don’t have feeling.
    So whoever out there, still consume meat, poultry, seafood or using the animals for performance. I urge you to stop this now

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this article

  6. Lin Mun on Nov 5, 2018 at 10:17 pm

    A very touching story of a pet and the owner. Many people said that animals have no feelings but Freedom clearly shows the otherwise. She hugged Jeff on the day that he was free from cancer. So warm. And when Jeff is not well, she will support him. Such an incredible relationship.

  7. Samfoonheei on Oct 27, 2017 at 11:52 am

    Touching…..there must be some incredible bond between Freedom and Jeff Guidry. Freedom is just an eagle yet Jeff have Freedom for more than 11 years from a injured baby eagle been taken care and nursed to a healthy eagle. Amazing Jeff never gave up on Freedom as eagle would be euthanize due to very bad conditions with broken wings, emaciated and covered in lice.
    Freedom is very special bird and was a soul mate to Jeff so much so it’s a miracle that Jeff was cancer free after what he has gone through with Freedom.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing…… a touching story. Animal do have feelings and do not hurt them. They are like us needs love and care. They deserved a chance to live.

  8. Vivian Ong on Apr 2, 2017 at 12:58 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. Freedom is such a special eagle. Jeff was so kind to take her to the vet when her wings were broken. He even took her in as her own pet. Both Jeff and Freedom were so fortunate to have each other’s company when both were unwell. Animals do have feelings too. The kind of bonding between Jeff and Freedom was through their up and down days together. I wish both of them well.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Freedom’s story is very touching, she was very lucky to have met Jeff, if it was someone else, I can’t say that Freedom would still be here, in this world. I think their connection between each other is very strong, especially Jeff has been there for her since young. It’s really awesome to have this kind of connection between other species.

  10. Edward Ooi on Nov 11, 2013 at 2:24 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I think Freedom might be a reincarnation of a powerful God/Angel/Buddha. When Jeff said that Freedom hugged him, it’s like I’m getting a feeling being hugged by a eagle myself of course that was my imagination but the feeling being hugged by a loving pet is very touching.

  11. tong sun sun on Oct 9, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    万物皆有灵性,只要我们稍微注意,用心宠物们都会感受得到。

  12. AdelineTan on Apr 14, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    By looking at the first picture of Jeff and Freedom they are like father and his child. Even human being can have such beautiful relationship with an eagle,thus i strongly believed that they must have very strong karmic link in their past lives and they continued their friendships in this lives even they are in a different form,such an incredible touching story for sharing.

  13. Thierry on Apr 7, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.

    This bird can’t talk, he can’t drive, he can’t cook a meal, he doesn’t have money to give, he requires constant care, he can’t even make a cup of tea…. Yet, this bird has been the best support to Jedd Guidry in times of great need.

    It shows: help does not come from others giving it to you, help comes from us giving it to others.

  14. Lim Han Nee on Apr 7, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    A strong bond is forged between one being and another,when both are able to step into each other’s shoes and empathize with each other. This bond becomes very powerful, as it transcends all perceived barriers. Such is the case between Jeff and his ‘soul mate’ and pet eagle, Freedom.

    It is amazing that Freedom can love her master so much that she releases a powerful positive healing energy because of that love. That energy healed Jeff of his cancer.

    I may not be Jeff and my youngest rescued cat and pet , Zoey, may not be Freedom ; but I have a special bond with her, like that of a mother-and-child. This is because she was only 1 week old and near death when my maid and I rescued her about 2 years ago. My maid and I had to feed her with a syringe and a special milk formula for cats.

    Even up to the present day, whenever she feels sleepy, she will come to me(when I am around) and ‘ask’ to be hugged and coddled(like a baby).

  15. William on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:56 am

    Amazing true life story on how animals can give strength to humans to lift their spirits up. This story shows us on how Jeff gave hope, love and care to Freedom and how Freedom repay his kindness when Jeff needed it. Animals do know what is going on and they can reciprocate the love the got. That eagle looks so stately. A friendship without words but through love.

  16. Albert Ratchaga on Apr 7, 2013 at 1:12 am

    Is it since the history where animals are the best friend a human can have, they never betray human, they never use human, they never abandon human, but it is human who betray them, use them and abandon them.

    Freedom is very fortunate to have met Jeff who saved her life, but Jeff is even more fortunate to have met freedom because he got his bestest friend who will walk through all the thicks and thins in his life. It is so beautiful to see friendship like this, a friendship without an expiry date.

  17. Julien Roth on Apr 7, 2013 at 12:49 am

    Such a touching relationship. Im so glad that this eagle stood up before it got out down. It would have been such a shame for such an amazing animal to be put down. And it was due to this mans kindness, that this bird is still alive today. I am so happy for him and the bird.

  18. uncle eddie on Apr 6, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Boundless compassion, are believed can be found amongst those who have attained ultimate wisdom, as said in the Sutra: “The Heart of Buddha is boundless and loving kindness and compassion”. So with a boundless heart, one should cherish all beings,radiating kindness over the entire world. We may not be able to prevent the disasters of life, but we can find skillful ways to unbind our sense of being, so that suffering is transformed into an awakened-heart that can do great good in the World. For those who can do good to others will ultimately receive goodness for oneself, as shown in this classic case of “Freedom the amazing”, and many more.

  19. Cliff on Apr 4, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Amazing! This is truly touching. Its incredible how intelligent some animals may be. Its such a wonderful story how they both met and cared for each other and got each other through such hard times. Its also really good that freedom was able to help comfort many sick people as well. Im glad he shared this story with everyone. I hope more stories like this would be able to convince more people to become vegetarians because animals show compassion when we show compassion. Dogs are even loyal and love their owners even when they mistreat them. Animals were not made for us to eat, but for us to learn to be compassionate, kind, tolerant and love. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story Rinpoche. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  20. edward ooi on Apr 4, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I wonder what happened to Freedom before Jeff found her. What could injured a bird till when Jeff found Freedom, she could not stand and both wings were broken she was emaciated and covered in lice.I am just happy that Jeff Freedom and Freedom is still soul mates to each other. I wish they both have a good health and long live.

  21. Mercedes on Apr 4, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,I just want to thank you for such a beautiful story!! Iknow animals can be healing Angels. They are in so many aspects better than people. Most of them so much better than the humans.Thanks again for such a beautiful video and story 🙂

  22. David Lai on Apr 4, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    I love Tsem Rinpoche’s blog because of these amazing stories. I think that these amazing stories reveal the fact that if animals can reciprocate kindness, so can us humans. Animals are not mere objects to be used for our food, entertainment and so forth. This is a great lesson for all of us and it is also very touching to see the bond between a man and a bird, which transcends the limitation of communication and language. The universal language of all beings should be kindness and not exploitation and cruelty. As part of this earth and having been endowed with intelligence, human beings must and have to assume proper responsibility to care for others. This story exemplifies this ideal and that we are all truly equals especially in the eyes of kindness and compassion.

  23. Sharon Saw on Apr 4, 2013 at 11:35 am

    Humans and animals have had spectacular relationships throughout history and this is one of them. Jeff’s care for Freedom is very touching and the relationship built up between them through this care is so powerful. I do believe that Freedom helped Jeff clear his cancer and that Freedom has the ability to give positive and thus healing energy to others. This is one good reason to treasure and respect animals. Animals are not here to serve human beings but to coexist in mutual understanding and this story is one of the best evidence of why this should be. If Freedom had been euthanized, even if for the best motivations, Jeff might not have lived. It just shows how the decisions we make can affect us in the long term. An incredible story! Thank you for sharing this.

    • Martin on Apr 7, 2013 at 2:56 am

      So true what you said Sharon especially how Jeff’s genuine and real wish for Freedom to live, and his acting on that wish, may very well have created the positive karma for Jeff to overcome his own life-threatening disease. The effect of preserving the life of another is that we create the karma for our own life to be preserved. This itself is a good reason to be kind to animals and never neglect or abuse them.

      Between Jeff and Freedom is a very real and tangible bond but I may not have been able to see it if Buddhism had not taught me to see with eyes that recognize all sentient beings as being equally capable of experiencing suffering and pain. It is our common ability to feel pain and be afraid of it that connects all beings and once connected, we no longer see them as being so different. Clearly to Jeff, Freedom is not just a bird and similarly neither is Jeff to Freedom,someone or something harmful to fear. They have something much more between a man and an eagle.

  24. tenzin llhamo on Apr 4, 2013 at 11:21 am

    Such a heart warming story! With love, they both healed each other and share that special connection and a loving relationship. It was really kind of Jeff to take care of Freedom and never gave up on her. I like the part where Freedom hugged Jeff. Shows how much they mean to each other. I am happy that they both survived the bitter pain and okay now. The positive energy that they both exude is just amazing! May they continue to be healthy!

  25. sockwan on Apr 4, 2013 at 10:33 am

    Such a beautiful story. Jeff used love to heal Freedom and Freedom in return used love to heal him. Love is universal, even without a single word, it radiates and all beings can feel it.

  26. Lucas Roth on Apr 3, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    relationships can be in sooooooooooo many different ways and this one is definitely a good one, this story is very inspirational to me and many more people. thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very amazing story.

  27. June Kang on Apr 3, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    看这篇文章时,我的脑海里中出现动物带给我们欢乐,激发我们的灵感的图片,同时它们和我们一样渴求快乐,承受痛苦和畏惧死亡。

    我想我们只是关心人与人之间的关系,我们就不会真正变得文明起来,真正重要的是人与所有生命的关系。 为什么?丰子恺曾劝告小孩子不要肆意用脚去踩蚂蚁,不要肆意用火或水去残害蚂蚁,他认为自己那样做不仅仅出于怜悯之心,更是怕小孩子那一点点残忍之心以后扩展开来,以致驾着飞机装着炸弹去轰炸无辜的平民。

    请爱护动物就是爱你自己!

  28. pavara on Apr 3, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    This post about the injured eagle is so inspiring. We, as human beings should love all living beings.

    Jeff was so kind and patiently taking care of the injured bird, Freedom until finally she was able to stand up and her wings’s injury has recovered.

    When people keep pets and they get sick, they will usually just dump their pets , but this post about Jeff is totally different. He took the eagle, Freedom to the hospital to treat her. If not for Jeff freedom would have not survived.

    Because of his kindness, Freedom in return also show her care to Jeff when he has cancer. Through his accumulated merit, Jeff was finally cured.

    Wish that they will continue to be best friend for ever.

    Thank you for sharing this post, Rinpoche.

  29. Jay Jae on Apr 3, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this moving post!

    I could never have appreciated animals for their beauty and love without Rinpoche’s guidance! Reading and watching Freedom channeling her energies to heal others is really amazing. This is living proof that the entire ecosystem is really interdependent on each other and the only way to go is to respect each other by being vegetarian and going all the way to protect them and contributing to their lives.

    spread this beautiful stories around folks!

  30. Jean Ai on Apr 3, 2013 at 11:22 am

    What a touching story of how a bird saved a man’s life. Especially wonderful about this story is the initial vulnerability of Freedom who as an eagle is normally the predator but needed Jeff’s help…and after she got it, returned his kindness by saving his life. When even a bird of prey that is born and bred, and has evolved just to kill is capable of overcoming her killer instinct, why do we find it so hard to give up killing and eating meat for just one day?

  31. yeomiawkee on Apr 3, 2013 at 10:23 am

    This shows all sentient beings have feelings! Thanks for sharing as it teaches us to be compassionate to all beings!

  32. Girlie OOI on Apr 3, 2013 at 9:08 am

    Thank you for this post, Rinpoche.

    We keep reading or hearing of animals that come into people’s lives — it is as if they were sent to us with a secret mission. Such friends need no voices to tell us of their love and gratitude — their show it unconditionally.

  33. henry ooi on Apr 3, 2013 at 9:07 am

    A warm and touching story of care, kindness, giving, patience, love a person can offer to even an animal of the wild that helped ‘tame’ it. I guess the bond between them gave Jeff the strength to battle his illness.

  34. Lin lee on Apr 3, 2013 at 8:46 am

    Thank you rinpoche for a wonderful story. This kind of stories always touches the human heart and show us whether animal or human beings, we are all beings with a spirit. What we make of it s up to us. Thank you for the inspiration.

  35. James Long on Apr 3, 2013 at 2:06 am

    语言是沟通的一种方式,绝大部分的沟通来自于语言以外的交流。不同的个体,能以“心”交流,难能可贵。很难在今天的生活看到人们或是不同的生物真诚的相处,绝大部分的人需做最后的决定时,都以自己的私人利益着想。希望能有更多这类的例子流传。

  36. Jessica Yap on Apr 3, 2013 at 1:35 am

    What a beautiful story of a phenomenal relationship between a bird and a man. It is always heart warming to read stories like this. Animals are like us humans too. They are able to feel pain, to love just like us humans therefore we should treat all sentient beings with love and compassion..

    Jeff and Freedom, thank you for showing us that animals and humans could form a beautiful relationship.

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

    • kwok wai on Apr 3, 2013 at 1:55 am

      Thank you for sharing this amazing story , to be honest the first thing that came to mind is that i would like to experience being “eagle hugged” by none other than an American Bald Eagle ! Amazing creature , regal and powerful. In this case , a very gentle and grateful eagle , able to give love in return.

  37. Erickksiow on Apr 3, 2013 at 12:44 am

    We should do the same like Jeff Guidry treated Freedom, Animals need love and care from us. That’s touching.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing the story to us.

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  38. Joy on Apr 3, 2013 at 12:36 am

    An amazing story indeed… it goes to show how much we are so interconnected and really nothing is ever coincidental. Before I joined the Dharma, I use to read a lot of “new age” stories and wisdom, I used to believe that someone crosses path with us for a reason and when that person or being is done his/her part with you, lessons to learn along the process, then that is when we part. I guess now with Dharma I can see how it applies to karma.

    Jeff definitely have a strong karmic connection with Freedom and they were meant to be, to find each other and to do something good. Eagels are mystical animals and they are well known for their spiritual being in American natives. So I am not surprised with Freedom’s ability and strong sixth sense that without Jeff having to say anything, she knows and sense what is going on. Actually all animals do. Hence, we should not view animals as lower then us and look at them as just meals… in Dharma, they could far well be our previous live’s mother. So why would we wanna harm and hurt our mothers? Just by saying we are “Buddhist” is not good enough, we need to at least be able to do the basics… not harming other. And by not harming all sentient beings means including animals!

  39. Jim Yeh on Apr 3, 2013 at 12:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this incredibly touching story with us. I was really moved.

    Jeff is someone who is compassionate and understands the value of life. I will strive to be more like him and continue to support societies that help animals.

  40. Jutika Lam on Apr 2, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Wow!! What an amazing story on the relationship of an injured Eagle and its owner.

    It is no surprise how even though birds will be birds, dogs will be dogs and animals will be animals in this life it is amazing how they may not look as smart as us, they are smaller than us and they don’t really act like human beings but yet there are so many stories on the companionship of very loyal and faithful dogs like Hachiko and so many others…..

    Even though I have never heard/read about any companionship between a human and a bird or to be more precise an Eagle I am very taken aback at how when Freedom was sick Jeff patiently took care for her and when Jeff was sick with cancer Freedom fought Jeff’s cancer in his dreams.

    It’s wonderful to know the fact that all animals in this world are not here to harm us, it is just that because we, Humans have scared them so in turn they to have to be protective of themselves.

    Amazing to know that if we don’t harm any animals, sooner or later animals will no longer be afraid of humans and the world would be so harmonies to see people staying with all kinds of animals in their homes both not afraid of each other.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with me this very touching story of Jeff and Freedom.

    Love
    Jutika

  41. beatrix ooi on Apr 2, 2013 at 11:25 pm

    This is so touching! I’m very surprised because eagles are known to be very aggressive, when they want something, they will find the way to get it no matter how hard it is.
    I really love the part where Freedom would put her wings around Jeff, it’s just like hugging him. I’m so glad that Freedom survived. Right now, she has a friend who loves her. Good for her.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

    • lewkwanleng on Apr 8, 2013 at 1:58 pm

      I supposed there are exceptions to anything.. Eagles are usually aggressive because they need to survive, but Freedom the eagle has been showered with love, and I supposed her kindness seed opened and she is not like the “normal” eagles anymore 🙂

      There are many stories about how aggressive animals like tigers, lions, etc showed their kindness to human.

      It is time for the human to show kindness to the animals too. The easiest way to show kindness is not to torture them and have them as food in our plate..

  42. Sean Wang on Apr 2, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post. The story is an inspirational and moving story to all animal lovers. Many people would let their animals go elsewhere when the owner is sick, this man still kept his ‘friend’ and shows that he is willing to keep his friend through thick and thin. This man makes me regain my hope in humanity.

    In folklore, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person appear to the living. Descriptions of ghosts vary widely that exist everywhere depending on the person who see it. Ghosts generally appearing for reasons. These could range from unsolved murders, forced suicides, preventable tragedies and so forth.
    Reading this post has a better understanding of how to solve or rather handle such situation. I do believe ghost do exist after all. To me ,we respect and having compassion for all those unseen beings we so call it ghost. Learning Buddhism and putting into practice, we have the knowledge to deal them. Doing prayers and dedicate to them to relief their sufferings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    So touching reading article again. Lama Yeshe a rare attained being indeed giving inspiration to many , leaving a legacy . He was one of the most beloved Tibetan Buddhist masters of the late twentieth century. He was co-founded Kopan Monastery (1969) and the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (1975). He followed the Gelug tradition, and was considered unconventional in his teaching style. He is legendary pushes people’s buttons in his teaching similar to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings . All the pushing is for the students to be better in life. We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche at Kechara Forest Retreat , Malaysia . Many of us have benefited from Rinpoche’s teachings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting stories behind of this Tsem Ladrang – The House of Devotion at Gaden Monastery . Established and sponsored by Rinpoche’s birth father, Lobsang Gyatso. Tsem Rinpoche offered Tsem Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche his teacher after leaving for Malaysia as advice by Kensur Rinpoche who was affectionately known as ‘the bodhisattva abbot’.

    Interesting read of Dr R Nyamaa ‘s biography. Dr R Nyamaa been the very first Mongolian woman doctor of bone tuberculosis. She is a multifaceted woman who works to empower herself and empower others. To be a doctor at those days is definitely brave and courageous. A great teacher having brought many changes to the medical world, introducing many new initiatives and practices in the field of training and treatment. She did published more than 60 articles in research reports, edited 4 manuals and 4 textbooks for students and doctors. She held several post and had received many rewards for her work in medical fields. She continued to serve at the First State Medical Centre till her retirement. Interesting read .

    Before reading this post I used to think witches are women wearing black and pointed hats having evil or wicked magical powers. They practice and believes to have supernatural skills and abilities such as the casting of spells. Interesting read of this post very informative indeed. I understand better now the role of witches and they have nothing to do with worshipping something negative. Many people have a lot of misconception regarding witches in fact. Through history and long ago they have been prejudiced but not now many came to realise they deserve understanding and respect. Clear and detail explanation watching those videos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The lady in red is all about stories of what happened to the two robbers arriving at doorstep of an old but regal inn named Redgrave Inn. Tragedy then befallen on one of the robbers Gareth. As they were checking in the attic for the night they saw a painting of a lady in a red gown feeling sad. Having misunderstandings the other robber Joseph left. Strange indeed Gareth went missing nowhere to be seen. Months later Joseph still could not make sense of what really happened went back to get the whole history of this strange lady in red. Interesting the paintings which Joseph saw now the lady in red is with his friend Gareth . Recording to the former owner then there’s many strange things had happened at Redgrave Inn before Gareth’s disappearance. Sound scary but interesting read .

    Beautiful and inspiring story which will touch the hearts of many . Been growing up in a family who against Tem Rinpoche for practicing Dharma is really hard and difficult one could imagined. How Rinpoche had the determination and will power to over come those obstacles he endured . Choosing his family and choosing Dharma , Rinpoche choose the later. Nor matter what happened Rinpoche somehow managed to practice Dharma under H E Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin his first Dharma teacher. It was because of Kensur Rinpoche that Rinpoche stayed with Geshe-la, studied under him before going to India to become a monk. Not only that later meeting root guru H H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.
    After years visiting Rashi Gempil Ling,the temple of Rinpoche’s childhood again and not been able to enter to temple Rinpoche offered prayers and three prostrations on the sidewalk remembering his guru’s kindnesses. Bittersweet moment Rinpoche felt not able to visit the temple again .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

    The three values of Olympism are excellence, friendship and respect. About coming together in the spirit of sportsmanship, the competition between countries from all over world. It wasn’t just the athletic ability, it was their moral courage competing in the Olympics as a once in a lifetime opportunity for them.
    Olympic hurdler, Liu Xiang from China a sporting idol had won after China’s first ever male track and field Olympic gold medal. In the last Olympics due his recurring injury had forced not able to perform well. Despite crashing on the first hurdle he continued with much pain hopped onto the track, kissed his final hurdle before he made it to the finishing line. His courage and determination had won the heart of many in the stadium and back home. He had showed an example of good sportsmanship and being able to lose gracefully.

    An animal testing is known as testing of live animal in any scientific experiment. A live animal is likely to suffer pain, distress and lasting harm in the procedure . Animals used in laboratories are deliberately harmed, and are usually killed at the end of the experiment. It is cruel and inhumane to experiment on animals, that alternative methods available to researchers can replace animal . I am sure there are other methods as now the world is so advance in their technology. Animals should not be used in research or to test the safety of products. Thankfully, the development of non-animal methods is growing, and fast. Due to innovations in science, animal tests are being replaced in areas such as toxicity testing, neuroscience and drug development.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these animals testing which should be banned.

    When we see the world through serene eyes, we generate peace wherever we go. A message of peace, respect and love towards others is at the heart of all of the major world religions. Listen with the intent to understand, be helpful, caring to others nor matter what race and religion or faith. Glad that a dialogue between Catholic and Buddhist religious and social action leaders coming together at Vatican. All participants living in America from New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and so forth .
    Religion is about increasing peace and harmony in the world. … People of all different religions should be given the opportunity to pursue good in their own way. Quoted Aung San Suu Kyi

    All suffering is in fact the result or fruit of negative emotions such as attachment, greed, jealously, pride, anger, and hatred. The five afflictive emotions are the source of suffering. Pride leads to unhappiness in long run. Letting go of these instead of clinging on to it will lead us to nowhere. A profound teachings …….as quoted The letting go is from clinging on to the afflictive emotions, the anger, jealousy, feelings of unjust treatment, which all stems from our self-cherishing mind. Remembered the kindness the Guru has shown us and what we will never give up nor matter what happened. I am still plenty to learn.

    Heard stories from senior students of Rinpoche about assignment that had changed their lives. Reading this post tells us more through the eyes of Joy Kam. Some understandings learned from it. The little assignments which many have taken it for granted actually helps to change our karmic situation. Rinpoche wanted us to realize later on but not now from a particular assignment. What Rinpoche did there is always a reason behind it which many might not understand till later on. Rinpoche knows best, always cares for everyone and help us to improve, grow in our spiritual path. And also helped us to purify certain karma . Interesting read
    Thank you Rinpoche and Joy Kam 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

One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

    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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya".
