This is something you have to read!

Dear friends,

This is something you absolutely have to read, understand and think about. It concerns you directly. Sometimes information like this can be unbelievable, but when we read the facts according to studies from Harvard, we have to overcome our graspings and just pick the better choice. You have to read this article. Very important. Share it with people you love and are concerned abot.

We all have that one friend (or parent) who tells us not to eat too much of the fatty bits on our meat. Some of us have that vegetarian friend who tells us that meat is bad for you – morally and for our health… but is there any scientific basis behind their advice?

Over the years, many researchers have produced reports with firm evidence stating that meat is harmful to our body. Meat contains many substances which causes harm to us in the long run. It is really scary to read all these reports but scarier to know there are still many big meat eaters out there today… even though time after time again, meat has been proven to be harmful to us.

One of my students, Pastor Ngeow, found this article on a Malaysian daily newspaper, The Sun. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health has proven that by consuming meat, especially red meat, we are more likely to die sooner. The research followed more than 100,000 people over several decades! The current scientific report issued was based on 38,000 middle-aged male subjects who were tracked for 22 years and 84,000 female subjects who were tracked for 28 years.

Research found that red meat contains a lot of compounds and chemicals causing chronic diseases. Large consumption of meat will most likely lead to cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

How soon do you want to die? If you want to live long, vegetarianism should be the choice. If you can’t become a vegetarian instantly, then perhaps try cutting down on your meat intake… If not for any other reason, for a healthier you.

I choose not to eat meat for many reasons. When I am healthy, I can do more Dharma to serve others. By cutting down on eating meat, more animals are saved from being part of the millions slaughtered every day. There are so many benefits if we decide to go vegetarian. Just imagine. Do read the article below.

    Interesting and informative article about red meat shortening lives. My family have cut down on meat like chicken and pork due to many feedback that they contain too much chemicals, and some of my mum’s friends who are cancer patients managed to prolonged their life going on a vegetarian diet. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this imporant article🙏👍😘👏

  2. Chris on Oct 17, 2018 at 12:22 am

    This is an interesting finding that red meat can shorten our life. From the health point of view, red meat has high cholesterol and animal fat content. Those are actually not good for our body and they can cause a lot of problems when our age catches on and our body can’t heal itself quick enough anymore.

    On the Karma point of view, eating meat is the act of killing. Some might debate saying they are not involved in the killing of the animal directly and hence it is not considered as killing. However, they don’t realize that they are creating causes for the animal to be killed by requesting for its meat. The Butcher will then have to kill the animals to provide the meat for you. Hence, it is still considered as killing but indirectly.

    The karma of killing is very heavy and many are not aware of it. The effect from the karma of killing is where we will have a life where we will have difficulties to stay alive. We will be born in places where there will be alot of disease and not good for living. Hence, it will be better for us to go vegetarianism. The diet of compassion and kindness.

    Researchers have proven and do have evidence stating that meat is really harmful to our body. Meat contains many substances, chemicals, which causes harm to us in the long term and red meat shorten human lives. Large consumption of meat especially processed meat are likely lead to cardiovascular diseases ,cancer and alot more.
    I have seen and known people having diseases all are link to have comsump on more red meat. But nowadays more and more people are health conscious having cut less of meat. It would be wise for them to remove meat from the menu. To be on vegetarian will be a good choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  4. Jason on Jan 3, 2016 at 2:21 am

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing .Myself is trying to reduce meat in my daily foods chain.Pastor adviced me must try to meatless first before going to be vegetarian .After few months of testing period I feel that I don’t have strong desired to eat meat .But I still can’t let go of dairy foods. I hope in future I will be pure vegetarian. I am trying to create a good cause by not killing more n more livestock.this will help me a lot in doing dharma works.

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Jan 10, 2016 at 7:20 am

      Hi Jason,

      I used to find it very difficult but the more I learned about how animals suffer, the more difficult it becomes to eat meat. After I gave up meat, I realised that the idea of giving up meat is much harder than actually giving it up.

      I was very fortunate because Rinpoche has been slowly guiding me in this for many years. Below, I am sharing with you some videos and books that Rinpoche has asked us to read and watch over the years which were very helpful to me, so I hope they are also helpful for you.

      It will be very good for you to watch videos like Earthlings (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/earthlings.html), or to find a copy of Shabkar’s book on the karmic consequences of eating meat, as well as Bodhipaksa’s book on vegetarianism (http://www.kechara.com/kechara-house/resources/recommended-reads/vegetarianism-bodhipaksa/). Both are very good books on vegetarianism from a Buddhist perspective, especially Shabkar who covers all the excuses that we humans make so that we can continue eating meat 🙂

      Good luck!

      Pastor Jean Ai

  5. Angelshooi on May 25, 2014 at 1:59 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I keep advising one of my friend to become a vegetarian but she kept on saying that she loves meat. I want her to at least cut down but she wouldn’t. I have no other ideas of convincing her, I’m not trying to force her to become a vegetarian I’m just helping her to cut down.

  6. beatrix ooi on Feb 10, 2013 at 12:03 am

    I didn’t liked to eat red meat before I am a vegetarian. I don’t like the taste of blood. Sometimes when I consumed red meat, I will be ended up in the toilet for few hours. For me it’s very unhealthy and unhygienic to consume that. The consumption of meat is never good.

  7. Paris on Jan 31, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    One of my highly qualified doctor friends has also told me about extensive reading and research she had done on the effects of eating meat. She explained that it is one of the most direct causes of cancer, this is beyond doubt and a widely accepted fact by many in the medical field (both in scientific medical studies and as well as alternative healing therapies). There have also been studies and medical explanations for many, many years now that large amounts of meats lead to all other kinds of health complications and diseases of affluence – heart attacks, clogged arteries, high blood pressure, gout, diabetes etc… So this news should not surprise us.

    Actually, if might step back for a moment and consider what the big deal is about eating red meat. Actually, the only thing we get out of it is that momentary sense pleasure, those few moments of what we think of as an exquisite taste experience – the sensual pleasure of eating the actual meat and feeling it in our mouths. Once we swallow it, we really don’t feel anything anymore.

    So we’d put ourselves through health risks, we’d kill thousands of animals and put another few million through a lifetime of suffering and torture… just for those FEW SHORT MOMENTS of a sensory pleasure. Is it really that worth it?

    Out of all the millions of food options available in the modern world today, surely there are many, many other ways of pleasing our taste buds, getting the nutrition we need and having a good meal without all this added, unnecessary pain?

  8. Joy on Jan 21, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    We are discovering more and more everyday how eating meat only bring more harm to ourselves, our environment and others… it is so unnecessary when we are now spoil with so many choices.

    Yes it is really a choice to be naive and ignorant because we choose to ignore the messages until it is to late, like when we get cancer and we need to cut out meat completely… OR we can choose to find out, heed the advise and stop or slowly cut down. SO it is really up to us if we wanna kill others and in the process of killing ourselves.

    Education is very important and hence we need to spread the word out more and more. So it is really great to see news write up of factual info like this as evidence and proof that eating meat causes more harm than good. Whether or not you are Buddhist is besides the point, even i you are an atheist and a selfish being then be selfish for your own self, your health.

  9. Milly on Dec 9, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Animals go into fear mode when they are being taken to the abattoir. Toxins will be released and remain in their body. When we consume the meat, we will also be taking in the toxins into our body. From the compassionate angle, we cause the suffering and killing of another sentient being. Reverse the role. How would we feel? So from the health and humanity angle, it is not wise to consume meat.

  10. Felix Kong on Nov 29, 2012 at 1:03 am

    According to the researcher from Harvard Medical School, having a lot of red meat is increasing risk of kidney cancer and heart problem. Those people who want a long life should reduce eat meat from now or eat vegetarian food. Start from you, a little bit contribution, a lot of animals will not be sacrifice for your daily meal. “Love your health , love animals”.

  11. tfreon on Nov 23, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    No matter how many videos, researched showed that meat is really not for human to consumed, still some people just CAN’T give up on the meat taste. All sort of excuses will use to overcome their “guiltiness” , their greed for the food. But, people forget that, to make the meat taste good, many artificial flavors will have to use to cover up the “blood” smell.
    Our body is not a graveyard for animals or recycle bin for the animals bodies,
    hope that people understand the need to be a vegetarian, not by choice actually.

  12. Erickksiow on Nov 5, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    I always kept this in mind : “If you say you don’t have money to help a animal shelter, why then do you have money to buy meat?” ~ Tsem Tulku Rinpoche ~

    And always explain to customers, if we stop eating meat, we able to stop killing in one day, base on our kindness stop killing to aniamals. Another explain to customers, eat meat is not good for our healthy, why we want to bring sickness and cancer to our mouth?

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing more news to us.

    Since young I am not a fan of meat of any kind. I dislike the taste everytime I put it in my mouth. No idea why then but now I guess its because in previous lives I don’t eat meat too. Hehe… I have been trying to slowly put my kids on vegetarian meals and show them that even without meat food taste as good. Even soup taste better boiled with corn and mushroom extracts rather than using meat. Hopefully, my kids will stop eating meat for a healthier diet and generate compassion.

  14. Jace Chong on Oct 30, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    By eating meat, we not only harm others, it harms our body too.

    I watched a video about how live stock industry is harming the earth, I feel so bad that I was one of them who caused it. It is because of our demand for meat, the industry grows and more lifes taken away.

    I realize that the animal in the slaughter house is no longer “living thing” there, what the people value about the animal is the physical body of the animals which equal to profits for them. It’s so so sad.

    Everyone can contribute to stop it by becoming vegetarian or at least meatless diner. You can make a change by the choice of food. Please do not eat animals!!

  15. Yoke Fui on Jul 8, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    We are always creating the causes that give us the opposite of the results we want e.g. happiness and good health.

    Knowing that eating meat not only cause poor health and suffering to animals, we continuously give in to our attachment to sense pleasures. Just like smoking, there has been so much education on the negative effects of smoking but tobacco industry is still one of the biggest income earners of the world economy.

    I’m most grateful that Rinpoche showed us “The Earthlings” 3 years ago. This documentary reveals the inhumane way used to kill animals and the pains suffered by them. If we were truly Buddhists that practice compassion towards all beings, why are we selective ? What right do we have to decide what beings to live and what to die for our selfish gratification?

    If we worry about nutritional value of a vegetarian diet, a little research will dispel our concern. Rinpoche even posted a section on vegetarian restaurant review in this blog. The lame excuse that vegetarian meals are boring is really unfounded.

  16. patsy on Jun 18, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    Most people believe that if we dont take meat, we are deprived of the nutrients and some may find it is difficult to give up meat. In fact I think that a vegetarian diet is healthier choice. I was once a meat lover and having stopped eating meat for more than a year and substitute what I lack with health supplement I feel that I am healthier person.

  17. DR on Jun 18, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Jane Goodhall wrote: Thousands of people who say the ‘love’ animals sit down once or twice a day to enjoy the flesh of creatures who have been utterly deprived of everything that could make their lives worth living and who endured the awful suffering and the terror of the abattoirs.

    My opinion: Isn’t this hypocrisy? The mouth that spells compassion is the same that does the opposite.

  18. June Tang (KH-JB) on Jun 18, 2012 at 2:59 am

    其实吃肉的坏处真的太多了,不止不环保,嗜肉者的身体是酸性的,累集很多的毒素在体内,也比较容易患上癌症!!真是花了银子又伤身子!!有一篇健康報道说“少年不养身,老年养医生”真是太妙了。。。所以请大家尽早吃素,为环保出一份力,为自己的健康加分,累集不杀生的福報。。。一举数得,太棒了!!就从今天开始一起吃素吧!!

  19. lanse on May 21, 2012 at 12:54 am

    I used to be very against pure vegetarianism when I was young. Part of the reason is that our old textbooks always taught us that meat contains all the essential nutrients we need and it’s easier for us to achieve a balance diet. Of course at the same time, many medical researches also showed that meat eaters have a higher tendencies to suffer from chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancers.

    As someone who have some medical knowledge, I know it is not difficult at all for a vegetarian to achieve a balance diet. But I still chose to remain as a meat eater for many years, needless to say, the main reason of course is my attachment to meat.

    Thanks to Rinpoche’s teaching on compassion for all sentient beings. I have become a vegetarian for almost three years now. I actually feel much better for both my body and spirit, and to my surprise I found out that giving up meat is not as hard as I used to imagine. It’s just a decision. Just decide and do it. NOthing else.

  20. Wan Wai Meng on May 11, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Consumption of the meat of ruminant animals creates also many causes for degradation of the environment. Rumninant animals need a lot of roaming space for their food and grazing and they produce a lot of methane gas on top of that how much resources are used up for the production of one pound of meat as compared to one pound of grains. It is close to 20 times more resources needed to produce than one pound of grains.

  21. Ana on Apr 13, 2012 at 7:55 am

    I am 38 years old woman, now and I have been a vegetarian for quite a while, then as I was severely anemic and my health was a disaster, I started to eat meat once a week. Red meat. I felt so much better. As I became a Buddhist, I wrestle with the idea that eating meat accumulates bad karma and as well might not be the most compassionate thing to do! I know that buddhism is not about judging per se and we all have to make decisions after all.
    Now that I will go and see HH The Dalai Lama next week in Long Beach, California, I have made a vow to not eat any meat since yesterday until I see him and receive his initiation. It is renunciation, yes, but it is also a new chance for me to check how I feel without eating meat again.

    • Ana on Apr 13, 2012 at 8:00 am

      Also I must add that since eating red meat, I only buy meat form small farmers that let their cattle roam free and feed them natural foods and do not inject them with profilactic antibiotics or hormones. It is still eating meat, but just ensuring that those animals have had a dignified life. As a woman that suffers from menorrhagia, the amount of blood I lose can be terrifying, so I do eat red meat at those times to continue breathing and not going for transfusions, which my doctor has recommended on occasions. I do battle with my conscience lately regarding this issue.

  22. skyong on Mar 24, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    The animals are confined in close space created by human for efficiency in producing animal aka a factory. It is not their natural habitat. They become physically weak since from a new born because of no movement and exercise. Unknown amount of antibiotic is injected into them to withstand the dirty and harsh living condition until they’re being slaughtered, cut to pieces and sold as ‘food’ for human. The animals are feed with mixed ‘food’ sources which make them growth at unnatural rate. 🙁

  23. lewkwanleng on Mar 23, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    I used to be the number 1 meat consumer, but once I undertand what is my motivation to give up the meat, it becomes so easy, and I managed to let go of it within minutes.

    I thank Rinpoche for being the inspiration to become vegetarian, and benefit so much from it!

  24. wahying on Mar 23, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    吃素好处真的不少,吃肉多的人通常汗水味道较重,吃素也少了担心肉类有长肉剂的问题。为了自己我们通常可以把日子过得很糜烂,也有人过得超好的,不过通常是前者。为了别人,不管是一开始的身边的亲人爱人还是之后的众生,我们都可以把生活过得比较好——健康的身体就是往前冲的本钱。

  25. Uncle Eddie on Mar 22, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Dying daily for the animals, it seems is a nutural phenomenum, in order to serve and satisfy the survival instinct of human beings who eat meat. Contrary to what we believed and for health reasons, we don’t really need meat to survive. Our forefathers had a different diet during those days as their way of life was very much different from ours today. For today, we have gone onto electronics, amongst many other modern things too. We can get proteins easily from plant foods without eating meat and are yet doing fine. Nutritional experts no longer dispute whether animal flesh is essential; they agree that it is not. Such worries are entirely groundless. For health reasons, animal foods have in fact come under greater suspicion within the mainstream of the scientific community, on the causes leading to many forms of serious sicknesses and dieseases, such as cancer, heart-diseases, diabetes and gallstones, just to name a few. So not only are animal food unnecessary for our health, they may very well be detrimental to it! So be a vegeterian for Morality, Health and the Environment.

  26. tenzin llhamo on Mar 19, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Thank you for always reminding us about the danger of eating meat. May people who read this post understand the benefits of not eating meat…always…

  27. Cynthia L on Mar 18, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Many people think that being a vegetarian means we lack certain nutrition especially amino acid, iron and all the stuff that is present in meat. It is not surprising as most of the food we end up eating are bad carbs such as pasta, white rice, noodles and bread.

    Vegetarians need protein and the good news is there are so many other substitutes for red meat or any meat in non-animal product. A good source of vegetable protein is spirulina. It has more protein than any meat, eggs and milk. It is also rich in vitamin B, potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, and zinc.

    There’s nothing to worry about if you plan to stop eating meat. All it requires is some knowledge and research on how to be a healthy vegetarian.

  28. Takuan on Mar 18, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Reading “The China Study” changed my life. It’s a great book, written by doctors and backed up by science. It completely dismantles the whole “humans need meat for protein” myth. “Forks Over Knives”, which is a documentary based on “The China Study”, is pretty good as well. It actually shows people reversing high cholesterol, diabetes, and other serious ailments with a plant based diet. Like Don said, education is key!

  29. Don Buchwalter on Mar 18, 2012 at 8:39 am

    It is unfortunate that in the US, meat eating does not seem to be going away. Despite the abundance of vegetarian food – and the scientific evidence that states that a vegetarian diet is healthier than a carnivorous diet – America probably consumes more meat than any other nation on earth.

    Education is the key to ending the consumption of meat – thanks for sharing this!

    Rob Lowe is a famous actor and celebrity from Hollywood who has starred in such films as St Elmo’s Fire and also the very popular hit TV series The West Wing. Recently he and his sons did a series called The Lowe Files which is something like an X Files series. The family investigates strange happenings, occurrences, mysterious creatures, supernatural lore, unsolved mysteries and the like. Between the three of them, Rob Lowe has previously said that they have varying levels of skepticism. While Rob Lowe is more ready to believe in supernatural phenomenon, his sons profess to be more grounded and skeptical than their father.

    But with a show that focuses on such topics, of course it was only a matter of time that they covered Bigfoot. I was pleasantly surprised to see this episode because not many people, especially famous people, want to be associated with this genre of investigation. Let’s be honest – society thinks that people who investigate things like poltergeists and Bigfoot are generally regarded as a little different and quirky. So for someone who is famous to openly investigate, talk about and be interested in Bigfoot, is good for the field of investigation which is known as cryptozoology.

    Even though John Lennon has passed away but his songs continue to bring positivity in people’s life. Famous people are very influential to the public, some choose to use their fame to give people a positive influence, such as John Lennon. What we want, we have to fight for it and do something to make it happens. If we want peace, we have to start with ourselves, we can’t expect it from other people.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The new analyses indicate the ubiquitous extent of microplastic contamination in the global environment. Previous work has been largely focused on plastic pollution in the oceans, which suggests people are eating microplastics via contaminated seafood.

    Mahon said there were two principal concerns: very small plastic particles and the chemicals or pathogens that microplastics can harbour. “If the fibres are there, it is possible that the nanoparticles are there too that we can’t measure,” she said. “Once they are in the nanometre range they can really penetrate a cell and that means they can penetrate organs, and that would be worrying.

    One of the global fashion powerhouses which is Gucci is going to stop using fur for its fashion in 2018. Not only that but whatever they have remaining which is fur, they will auction off and donate the proceeds to organisations against animal cruelty.

    I was so happy to hear this news! It is good when brands are self-aware and recognise the role they play in providing a demand for these cruel industries. These lead to the suffering of many animals before their painful deaths.

    For such a huge global brand to make this decision must mean there is a demand for cruelty-free fashion, and they know they can remain a viable business even if they don’t offer fur. So it is also good that when consumers apply pressure to other brands, to let them know they will still buy into the clothing even if there is no fur. From the side of the consumer and the side of the producer, both can work together in this way to eradicate fur farms and cruelty to animals.

    Every time we walk into a store and buy something made from leather, we are directly contributing towards the cruelty enacted upon these poor animals. Please everyone, please stop supporting cruelty towards animals, they are sentient living beings too who feel love and pain. Can you imagine yourself being skinned alive? Just the thought of it is painful, but this is what is happening to these animals, they are being skinned alive! And to add salt on wound, their limbs are cut off to prevent them from escaping, and all of these is done without anaesthetic, so you can imagine how painful and traumatic it is for the poor animals.

    Please share this article with as many friends as you can to create awareness towards animal cruelty. Let’s stand up for these animals who cannot express themselves through words. Please always be kind to the animals, please always be kind to ourselves and stop hurting others.

    Today, life is very different, “a giant leap for mankind” to borrow the words of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Tibetans have much more freedom to develop their abilities and opportunity to use them to their fullest. For example, Jampa Ringzin who certainly has the talent for sports, has had the opportunity to develop his baseball skills and as importantly, has been able to access the job he has now been recruited into, at a world class level. Under the old structure in Tibet, he would not have these similar opportunities or choice. This is really human development.

    Many other Tibetans are very important examples of people who encompass what the New Tibet is today – a place full of potential to live a long, healthy and creative life, to be knowledgeable, and to have access to resources needed for a decent standard of living. And there is better news. Once these ABCs of human development are there, they open up opportunities for progress in other aspects of life.

    We all know that no one can guarantee human happiness, and the choices people make are pretty much their own concern. But the process of human development, at its most basic, should create an environment for people, individually and collectively, to develop to their full potential and to have a reasonable chance of leading productive and creative lives that they value. This, the New Tibet provides. A new Tibet for Tibetans without the failing Central Tibetan Administration (Tibetan refugee governing body) in Dharamsala, North India.

    Thank you, Martin for sharing these incredible accurate explanations of how Rinpoche help each and every single sentient being that he came across. Rinpoche was indeed a bodhisattva with a thousand arms that had the ability to do many things at once and yet precise. Rinpoche also have the ability to handle so many different kinds of neurosis in his students and dissect them down to the core of the problem and then heal it. There is no one in the world that I have met that can do and willing to do such a thing. May Rinpoche take a swift rebirth and come back to us.

    Padmasambhava

    he monk Santaraksita suggests to King Trisong Detsen (khri srong lde brtsan, c. 742-800) that he invite Padmasambhava to assist with the founding of Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first Buddhist monastery. On his arrival, the master offers a series of prophecies and tames Tibet’s local spirits who are resisting the introduction of Buddhism. The Testament of Wa also has the master overseeing several irrigation projects in the area around Samye. Such details have led some scholars to suggest that irrigation, and the spirit taming that would have entailed, may have been an area of particular expertise for the master.

    Sunrise Dorje Shugden Puja in Kechara Forest Retreat

    This morning, I invited the people who I saw were up and around for a morning sunrise Dorje Shugden wisdom puja. Although the sun had already risen, there was still a lot of mist. We went to the highest point in Kechara Forest Retreat which has very good views and is surrounded by green hills. We first went to the beautiful Manjushri image and made prayers and recited mantras, then circumambulated. Then we proceeded to begin the puja in the grassy area on Manjushri Hill. We had a lovely puja and it was very nice to have the students who were awake and around to join as they are spiritual people. Afterwards we all went to Manjushri fish pond and circumambulated there too.

    Loma Gyonma, known as Pita Parnasvari in Sanskrit, is one of the most efficacious healing Buddhas within Tibetan Buddhism. Her name literally means “The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves”. She is also known as “Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin” in some traditions and is considered an emanation of the Buddha Tara. She manifests as a deity that has mastered all the mysteries of the forest and therefore nature, which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, their causes, destroys harmful spirits and enriches our lives with good health. Therefore Loma Gyonma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases.

    As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

    The word “savari” in Sanskrit refers to the ancient Savara tribe who were known to wears skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunted with bows and arrows. Due to their culture which was heavily based on nature, they were known to be masters of the healing medicinal properties of herbs and plants.

    Nageshvaraja is also sometimes called Nagaraja. His name literally means ‘Tathagatha King of the Nagas’, known as ‘Luwang Gyalpo’ in Tibetan. He is also one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas as listed within the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps that we prostrate to in order to purify heavy negative actions.

    On October 21, 2017 Kechara had the merits to invite the holy statue of Buddha Nageshvaraja to our land. A group of Kecharians gathered to welcome Nageshvaraja and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, they packed and sewed everything into yellow cloth bags together with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

    After the statue was sealed, Nageshvaraja was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for the statue. After he had been placed on the pedestal, the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

    Dark Watchers is a mystical entities are believed to reside in the misty hillside of Big Sur in the Santa Lucia Mountains. The early Spanish explorers and Mexican ranchers that came after referred to these creatures as “Los Vigilantes Oscuros.” In modern times, they came to be known as “The Dark Watchers.”

    The Dark Watchers are a group of migratory entities that have appeared in California Folklore for supposedly the past several hundred years and are purportedly stalking travelers along the Santa Lucia Mountains. They are apparently giant human-like phantoms that are only seen at twilight, and they are usually spotted standing silhouetted against the night sky along the ridges and peaks of the mountains. These beings are believed to possess incredible hearing as well as impeccable eyesight. They are also immune to high-tech detection and prefer to only reveal themselves to travelers or trekkers who are equipped with simple items like hats and sticks.

    The liturgy of Dharma Protector practice is called ‘kangso’ and it is broken up into several parts including the invocation, praise, kawang, serkyem offering, mantra recitation, enthronement and dedication.

    The kawang liturgy is a confessional practice in which the practitioner engages in a specific visualisation meant to purify tremendous amounts of negative karma. Before delving into the technicalities of the kawang contemplation, we first need to have an understanding of karma.

    At the heart of a Dharma Protector’s kangso, or fulfilment ritual, is the recitation of the kawang liturgy, otherwise known as kangshag. Literally meaning the ‘clearing of obstacles’, this special confessional prayer utilises tantric visualisation combined with recitation in order to tap into Dorje Shugden’s power to significantly purify accumulated negative karma threatening to obstruct our practice.

    Corresponding with the amount of obstacles that are to be removed, the kawang visualisation is particularly graphic. Therefore, we should dwell on the real meaning of the contemplation and not on its wrathful and violent description. It also follows that if the negative karma that obstructs our practice is forceful, then the pujas to counter it have to be equally intense.

    We approach the recitation of the kawang by visualising our delusions, negative karma, habituations and so forth in the form of a man or a woman. Then, a dakini who is an emanation of Vajrayogini appears, wielding a cemetery knife, to slay the being who is the personification of our negativities. She slices the body in such a way that uncovers the inner organs, after which she makes the seven types of offerings from the remains of the corpse i.e. the wrathful sensory offerings.

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
