Dear friends around the world,

I am a firm believer in vegetarianism, which gives us the option to live healthier and cruelty-free lives. We should do our best to not harm or slaughter any animals. There are people who still believe that it is necessary to consume meat in order to have a healthy diet, but this is false. We do not need to harm or slaughter animals for our sustenance at all, as many people from athletes to doctors have shown without a doubt. There is also a lot of scientific research which highlights the many benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, which includes improved health and a reduction in global warming.

One of my students recently shared this article below that highlights how China is planning to take a significant step towards the reduction of meat consumption within its borders. I was really excited to learn about this as China is one of the most populous countries in the world with a population of over 1.3 billion! When China successfully reduces its meat consumption by 50% as they have planned, it will have a tremendous effect on the Earth’s environment and save the lives of a huge number of animals. China is doing this as part of its long-term health policy and China’s Health Ministry has already drawn up dietary guidelines and outlined plans to achieve this ambitious goal. By doing this, the government hopes to improve public health especially problems with obesity and diabetes, and to significantly cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. No country in the world has taken such incredibly tangible steps to save our planet. China is really setting a powerful example as a global leader and superpower in every field. This news brings much joy to myself. Many activists for animals and the environment around the world deserves this type of news. It is their hard work for decades that brings a change starting with the most powerful nation on earth.

I rejoice that China’s forward-thinking leaders are really taking their responsibilities seriously and are devoting resources and throwing their support behind this beneficial initiative. I hope more countries around the world will soon follow suit in a similar direction.

Tsem Rinpoche

“We need another and wiser and perhaps a more mythical concept of animals…. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complex than ours they moved finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”

China’s plan to cut meat consumption by 50% cheered by climate campaigners

New dietary guidelines could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1bn tonnes by 2030, and could lessen the country’s problems with obesity and diabetes.

The Chinese government has outlined a plan to reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, in a move that climate campaigners hope will provide major heft in the effort to avoid runaway global warming.

New dietary guidelines drawn up by China’s health ministry recommend that the nation’s 1.3 billion population should consume between 40g to 75g of meat per person each day. The measures, released once every 10 years, are designed to improve public health but could also provide a significant cut to greenhouse gas emissions.

The Chinese Communist party has found unusual allies among Hollywood celebrities, with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and director James Cameron involved in a series of new public information adverts encouraging Chinese people to consume less animal flesh to help the environment.

Should the new guidelines be followed, carbon dioxide equivalent emissions from China’s livestock industry would be reduced by 1bn tonnes by 2030, from a projected 1.8bn tonnes in that year.

Globally, 14.5% of planet-warming emissions emanate from the keeping and eating of cows, chickens, pigs and other animals – more than the emissions from the entire transport sector. Livestock emit methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas, while land clearing and fertilizers release large quantities of carbon.

“Through this kind of lifestyle change, it is expected that the livestock industry will transform and carbon emissions will be reduced,” said Li Junfeng, director general of China’s National Center on Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation.

“Tackling climate change involves scientific judgement, political decisions, entrepreneurial support, but at last, it still relies on involvement of the general public to change the consumption behavior in China. Every single one of us has to believe in the low-carbon concept and slowly adapt to it.”

Meat has gone from rare treat to a regular staple for many Chinese people. In 1982, the average Chinese person ate just 13kg of meat a year and beef was nicknamed “millionaire’s meat” due to its scarcity.

The emergence of China as a global economic power has radically altered the diets of a newly wealthy population. The average Chinese person now eats 63kg of meat a year, with a further 30kg of meat per person expected to be added by 2030 if nothing is done to disrupt this trend. The new guidelines would reduce this to 14kg to 27kg a year.

China now consumes 28% of the world’s meat, including half of its pork. However, China still lags behind more than a dozen other countries in per capita meat consumption, with the average American or Australian consuming twice as much meat per person compared to China.

According to a new report by WildAid, the predicted increase in China’s meat consumption would add an extra 233m tonnes of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere each year, as well as put increased strain on the country’s water supply, which is already blighted by polluted and denuded rivers and groundwater.

The report warns that unchecked Chinese meat consumption will also degrade its arable land and worsen the country’s problems with obesity and diabetes. An estimated 100 million Chinese people have diabetes, more than any other country.

Research released by the thinktank Chatham House in 2014 forecasts that China alone is expected to eat 20m tonnes more of meat and dairy a year by 2020 and warned that “dietary change is essential” if global warming is to not exceed the 2C limit eventually imposed at the climate accord in Paris last year.

“China’s move to cut meat consumption in half would not only have a huge impact on public health, it is a massive leadership step towards drastically reducing carbon emissions and reaching the goals set out in the Paris agreement,” said James Cameron.

“Animal agriculture emits more than all transportation combined. Reducing demand for animal-based foods is essential if we are to limit global warming to 2C as agreed at COP21.”

Despite the Chinese government’s new commitment to reducing meat consumption, it may be difficult to convince the country’s rising middle classes to cut down. There are also strong cultural traditions attached to the eating of many animals, especially pigs. The Chinese character for “home” depicts a pig underneath the roof of a house.

Recently, Chinese companies have been buying farms in the United States and Australia to provide feed for the country’s dairy and beef industries.

In late 2013 a Chinese company, Shenghui, purchased the largest US pork producer, Smithfield Foods, to help keep up with demand.

“China’s consumption of meat is skyrocketing,” said Jeremy Haft, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University in Washington, DC and author of a 2015 book, “Unmade in China: The Hidden Truth about China’s Economic Miracle.”

“China’s demand for meat will continue to grow and support hundreds of thousands of jobs in the US meat industry,” he added. “From a climate perspective, the methane will still be created, but will be shifted to the United States.”

    I have just watched a video few days ago, the video content was how China stand up from nothing and today they have everything.

    Since year 1900 when China was invaded by the Eight Nation Alliance, they have offered up everything they have to the 8 countries to beg for peace, since then, China has been a place that always bullied by other stronger countries, China has suffered extremely from poverty. Until the year of 1949 when Mao ZeDong announced that China people have to stand up, they have to rebuild their country, but during that time, it was never easy, because it was the time when they still don’t have anything, it was the time when their country has already broken apart, it was the time when their people still living in great poverty, the country was suppose to be in a ‘total loss’ condition, but due to the not giving up attitude, they unite, they work together, they always think a head of everyone, they always work double, triple hard to chase up the footsteps of other countries, and see what they have became today? China has became 1 of the leading country in the world, China has became so rich where they can invest their money in so many very well developed countries, China has stepped up to a position where every country also have to look up to.

    From nothing to something and from something to everything, this explains China’s mentality is beyond everyone else, and today, China announced to cut down meat consumption and the other countries has never taken this step yet, we can see that how much China cared for their people, first built a rich country so everyone can have better and more comfortable live, secondly they built a strong country so that everyone can live in peace and be safe, lastly, they are now building a healthy country so that everyone can live healthily.

    I really admire China for their determination towards making everything better, unlike Central Tibetan Administrative, when they have tons of donations flocking into their country and they didn’t use it to rebuilt their country, when they have the support and help from so many countries, they didn’t work to give a better lifestyle to their people, but yet, they spent lots of the money to defame Dorje Shugden, hire people to hurt their own citizen, taken all sorts of disciplinary actions towards their own people who is practicing Dorje Shugden, and now, they lose their country, they lose their people, they lose all the supports and they ended up losing everything. Hoping CTA will learn the lesson and learn from China how they can make their country stronger and better.

    This is an amazing news. If China cuts its meat consumption 50%, a lot of animals will be saved! Going meatless is a diet of compassion where no sentient beings have to suffer to end up in our plates. It is not ethical to kill another being just for the reason that we are hungry while there are plenty of other food options around.

    Why do we need to impose such suffering onto another sentient being? Animals have feelings too like us, humans. When they are being prepared to be slaughtered, they do have the fear of death and they suffer tremendously. Why would anyone want to do that to an innocent being who did nothing to us?

    That is why vegetarian is the diet of compassion where no beings have to suffer. It is just not nice to have another being to suffer just for us to fill our stomach. Let’s hope this will be an inspiration for more people to switch to a diet with less meat.

    China is becoming a leader in every sector. No country has planned to half the meat intake of their people in order to save our environment till this day. Only China is great enough to think so progressively. Just contemplate, about 20 years ago, China was poor and backwards and now it is the #1 super global power surpassing USA, Europe and Japan already.

    boom+superpower+

    Wow…..great news China been a big developed country is cutting meat consumption and taken the first approach. The Chinese population has the highest percentage of people with diabetes and other medical health problems. China’s health ministry has issued guidelines to help the people to adopt a more healthier vegetarian diet. They do believes it would be good for both health and the environment. Chinese consumers are now reducing their meat intake in favour of vegetables, tofu, and vegan meat substitutes. A good choice to do so in order to maintain a healthy weight and improve general health. Scientific researcher has proven that diets high in processed meat and dairy have been linked to increased risk of developing diabetes, hypertension, liver disease and cancer. They also says that vegan food can slow climate change, as plant-based foods require significantly fewer resources to produce than animal-based foods . China is encouraging its citizens to eat less meat, that wonderful. Do hope more countries will follow what China is doing. Research has shows that eating a vegetarian or vegan diet have a positive impact on climate change. For the better of our future generation , we should go meatless or vegetarian for the start.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    China is starting to introduce vegetarian product.

    We can find some vegetarian food now compare to last time.

    Eventhough currently, their consumption are majority beef and lamb, we still manage to see vegetables menu in restaurant and stalls but limited.

    Hopefully we can see more vegetables in their menu.

    China is now playing vital role in many key aspects in the world arena. Its influence is not to be ignored. From the past, we can clearly conclude that, if China decided to implement a new policy, the success rate is always high. Chinese people regardless of what, always show immediate and unanimous support to their government. I think this special culture is also one of the key elements that bring China success. Hopefully the same success will apply to the 50% cut down of meat consumption. It will make a huge difference to the environment and will save many precious animal lives.

    A sacred pilgrimage site for 22 centuries, this Dambulla cave is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla is a World Heritage Site in 1991. King Valagamba of Anuradhapura in the first century built a temple in thankful worship. Located in central Sri Lanka, the Dambulla Cave Temple is a living Buddhist site that is focused on a series of five cave shrines.The place is worth a visit though, just for the stunning sculptures and paintings in this historical paradise. The site is remarkable in the Buddhist world with the continuous tradition of living Buddhist ritual practices and pilgrimage for more than two millennia. That’s interesting.

A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada a book published Rinpoche autobiography, beautifully reflects his devotion to his teachers and the practices. Zasep Rinpoche points out, the practice of Dorje Shugden officially started in the Sakya school before it was embraced by the Gelugpas. Interestingly, this book also mentioned the great deeds of Dorje Shugden and how much this Dharma Protector has helped the Tibetan people as well and Tibetan Buddhism too.Zasep Rinpoche have touched the hearts of everyone he has encountered. Interesting read one must not missed as it is a true story of an incredible Tibetan Buddhist scholar and lama’s journey.

    As prophesies by Shakyamuni Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa is an emanation of the Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, and saint who lived in Tibet. His practice will instill deep wisdom and confers great blessing upon us. His pure teachings and activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. With the establishment of the Gelug monastery which survives to this day. Lama Tsongkhapa, considered one of the greatest Buddhist masters and philosophers of all time. There many benefits that arise from Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Merely by reciting Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra known as Migtsema mantra. is indeed very beneficial for everyone of us. We are so fortunate to learn and practices from our Guru.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great Master.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition centuries ago and only later widely practised in Gelugpa tradition. All these was stated by H.H Trijang Rinpoche in his work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. The throne holder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya. The practice of this Dharma Protector was later passed to his son the 31st Sakya Trizin Kunga Lodro who was believed to be the emanation of Dorje Shugden himself. Interesting facts. He even composed a Dorje Shugden prayer or Kangsol to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden. The prayer has since been well known and it is used to this day. The 39th Sakya throneholder Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen who also practised Dorje Shugden and praised Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Not only one but three Sakya Trizins who relied on Dorje Shugden and they referred to him as an enlightened being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing so as more and more practitioners know the truth and only truth that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being

Buddhism is one of the fastest growing religions in the west and have spreading further , all thanks to those highly lamas such as Gaden Tripas, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Wangyal, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin, Geshe Rabten, and so forth. Many people more people are becoming more aware of Buddhism and finding it a suitable way of life and religion. With the great spread of Buddhism, many people had benefitted with the practice as it emphasized individuals’ path to enlightenment and salvation, which could be attained in this life.

    The Legend of the Mermaid is well known and told with different forms and endings in all the oral tradition of peoples linked to the sea. It was rumored that the mermaid has a magical treasure. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Interesting read mermaids were natural beings who, like fairies, who had magical and prophetic powers. We usually see it as in movie whether it do really exists no one have really seen it nowadays. While there is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. They depicted in operas, paintings, books and live-action films.

    Trance is a state of semi-consciousness in which a person is not self-aware. The person is in a deep state of distraction by some inner turmoil or some outer mental influence. Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. Listening the video tells us more about trance. Interesting to know, but we should not get involve in trances as advice. Its better get involve in Dharma practice and have our mind transform.

    Observe good faith and justice toward everyone nor matter what religion and faith, regardless of race and religion creates peace and harmony . Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance. Living our lives selflessly, treating others with respect, sharing the extra that comes to us with others who have been short-changed.
    Reading our Guru’s tweets tells us a thousand words, on cultivating harmony ,understanding and acceptance in our daily life.
    May Rinpoche’s wisdom inspire us all to contribute to a better world

    Interesting read of a great Tibetan spiritual leader, Buddhist scholar and the fourth of the Five Sakya Forefathers. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen founded the Sakya school and one of Tibet’s most learned sages in Tibet, India, Mongolia and China. Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltshen have been an emanation of Manjusri, the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddha. Wow…… proficient in the five great sciences of Buddhist philosophy, medicine, grammar, dialectics and sacred Sanskrit literature.
    He was even talented in minor sciences of rhetoric, synonymies, poetry, music, dancing and astrology. Sakya Paṇḍita was a religious hierarch by birth. Sakya Pandita experienced an extraordinary teaching in his dreams and had many clairvoyant and clear dreams.
    Interesting read of the biography of a great Lama’s spiritual journey.

    Studies show that light pollution is also impacting animal behaviours, such as migration patterns, wake-sleep habits, and habitat formation. Noise is a source of stress. It triggers reactions in the body, light pollution can alter behaviours, sound and light affect the environment and also our daily lives. With their expertise, a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, did an enlightening experiment to determine where the surrounding environment having negatives energy. All through the colour generated in the sparks which confirms the presence of supernatural beings.I do believe those unseen beings do exist.

    Beautiful pictures paints a thousands words of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche. Those rare pictures shared ultimate sophistication of the relationship between the two great leaders.
    Back in the 20th century Jawaharlal Nehru an Indian anti-colonial nationalist, statesman, secular humanist, social democrat was very kind to receive them both. Looking at the rare pictures says all.
    Its such awesome watching the rare video of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche visiting India together. Visiting sacred places Buddhist sites of India together, and even having state dinner .

    nspiring read of the power sacred feminine Maha Pajapati Gotami, founder of the Order of Nuns. She was the foster-mother, step-mother and maternal aunt of the Buddha. In Buddhist tradition, she was the first woman to seek ordination for women, which she did from Gautama Buddha directly, and she became the first bhikkhuni.
    Mahapajapati lived to be around 120 years old. Having such an eminent position in the sangha, she would have had hundreds of nuns under her care, helping them realize the Truth. Perplexingly, the Buddha continued to have doubts about admitting women into the women’s order right up until his death. Mahapajapati had played an important role preserving the dharma taught by Buddha Shakyamuni.

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

    7 years 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
