Help Herbie please

“We need this poster to be shared with EVERYONE across the United States and BEYOND. We have to find the person(s) responsible for Herbie’s condition. Please forward to your friends, post at work if you can… do what you can to get the word out. It costs you nothing but it is PRICELESS! — with Jonny Rio, April Peterson and Pam Hoffmann.”

This is from Herbie’s page: On Saturday, Dec 1, 2012 the Lorain Police received an anonymous tip that a badly injured dog was left on the tree lawn of an abandoned house. Officers arrived at the home, located at 816 West 11th Street to find a very emaciated and injured animal. The male dog was identified as a possible Pit or Pit mix. The police report is attached under “FILES” above. According to Patrolman Broz, “I observed a light brown dog, possibly a pit bull, lying in the grass. Every rib, vertebrae, and leg bone could be plainly observed beneath it’s skin. I have never seen such an emaciated dog, still alive, in my career. A dog of this type should weigh around 75 or more pounds and this dog appeared to be around 25 to 30 pounds. The top of the dogs head was grotesquely swollen, apparently from an infected puncture wound, to nearly twice it’s expected size. The swelling actually was forcing the dog’s eye lids closed. Yellow-green purulent discharge was seen coming from both eyes.”

THE GOAL OF THIS PAGE is to accept donations to offer a reward for the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator of this crime. We also want to raise awareness of the need for stricter laws imposed on those people who are guilty of animal neglect, abuse etc. Right now in the state of Ohio you can be punished worse for stealing your neighbors tires than for killing his dog.- From Pat Fogo

Right now Herbie is in the care of the vets at the Lorain Animal clinic. On top of neglect and abuse they have also discovered that he has cancer. Because of this they are keeping a watchful eye on him at the clinic, where he will probably live out the rest of his days. He is shown a lot of attention and love, as well as constant veterinary care. – From Pat Fogo

No Jen Mogg, he had a fractured skull at some point but now there is a tumor in there as well that requires periodic draining.- From Pat Fogo

Try pulling up the Facebook page called Justice For Herbie, the Abused Lorain, Ohio Dog. There should be numerous pictures there and a few videos.– From Pat Fogo

Herbie has stablized, but he is blind in one eye, has cataracts in the other and it was just determined shortly after Christmas that is is now also suffering from a untreatable form of cancer. He continues to eat, relieve himself outside and walk, but he sleeps quite a bit. We really have no idea how long he will live, but as long as he’s here he is receiving exceptional care. You can see more pictures and updates on his own facebook page.-from Pat Fogo

 

 

Look at the before and after pictures of Herbie! Love is so important to have in our hearts.

 

Herbie now after love, care and treatment.

Dear Alison, I will also blog it to create awareness. Thank you dear Alison for being so compassionate, kind and caring. I like people like you who don’t sit by and just say what a shame, but does something about it. May you be continually blessed and even more successful. All these innocent beings without a voice cry out to you for help and you have heard them. Bless you.

Herbie Found His Voice (and it’s through us)

“I’m Herbie. I wish I could talk to you but we don’t really speak the same language.I know a few human words. I know “get,”  “move,”and “worthless.”  Besides that, I’m not in the best of shape right now so I’m not very talkative. I’m happy to take a nice nap after a meal, and enjoy the attention around me.

Sometimes there are bright flashes in front of me, but I really can’t see much. My eyes are not doing what they’re supposed to. Someone said the word cataract and I may have heard “blind”? But I’m not sure. I don’t know what that means.

I used to dream about my life, or what I remember of it. I don’t remember being a puppy, or playing. I do remember being cold and alone. My tummy hurt so badly for a long time, then one day I didn’t feel it any more. I started sleeping a lot. It was the best way to not feel bad.

If I knew who my owner was… and if I could tell you I would. I can’t see them anymore, except in nightmares. I was so afraid of them because I hurt a lot of times when they were around me. I thought they loved me. I would creep closer to them, trembling but hoping for a kind hand. 

I began to spend all my days in a cage. No one came to check on me. I wasn’t strong enough to cry. My head hurt so badly and my eyes closed tightly shut. I started to wonder if my owner didn’t love me any more. Why didn’t they love me anymore?

One day I was thrown into a moving thing. My owners’ hand touched me for the last time. I felt the cold air and hit the hard ground. No one was around. It got very quiet. I thought- I should just close my eyes and go away.  Why did my owner leave me here? What did I do? If they come back I promise to be better. Just touch my head once in a while.  Say my name. Anything so that I know I’m something. 

I don’t know how long I lay there. Then I heard footsteps. Someone touched me. I was so scared they would hurt me too. I didn’t mean to, but I made a little growling noise. Please just go away and let me fade off into the darkness. 

I was put in a warm moving thing this time. I heard a soft voice saying everything would be all right. Then more moving, and many hands were touching me at once. I was so afraid!  

So many things were happening at once. So many voices. I couldn’t hear what everyone was saying. “Make it,” or “Put to sleep,” ? I heard “treatment,” and “surgery,” and “a long road ahead.” But it was warm here and hands were soft. Voices spoke sweet words I couldn’t understand – they sounded like angels singing. 

Now I can stand, and everyone makes loud, fussy noises. That makes me happy. I’m doing something right! They like me! I got to eat food- and out of their hands! Now, they ask me to walk a little bit. I like the word walk! Afterwards I get to snuggle with a blanket and sleep again. This time, though, I am happy. I am loved. And I am alive! 

Thank you for loving me. ~ Herbie

P. Fogo, in honor of Herbie

Dear Friends,

I came across Herbie on my FB wall and was shocked and so deeply saddened. It pains me to see this type of abuse. It benefits no one. Please go onto Herbie’s facebook page and leave your love, comments and help in anyway. Let Herbie, the people who compassionately helped him and all the Herbies in the world know this is not right. Thank you for doing something good and caring.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. Why would Herbie’s owner starve Herbie and throw him out? In my opinion, if you do not want the pet anymore, just send it for adoption. If the owner dislikes the dog, just send it away to other people rather than torturing the poor little dog until it is malnutrition. Pets need our love and care too. If the owner cannot give love and care, then it is better they don’t even think of having a dog at home.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    It really saddened me to read about news like this, what did the dog ever done to you that made you so crazy until you had to left the dog to die? This is so cruel man! Poor Herbie, not a single living being deserves this! No matter if you’re a human or an animal, it’s just very wrong to have actions like this taken.

  3. Lucas Roth on Jan 12, 2014 at 12:47 am

    this is so horrible! how can someone do this??? I very strongly hate animals abusers, they make me sick, how can this be in their nature!?!?!?! some people… I am so happy Herbie is better and healthier. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  4. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 3:22 am

    It is just sad how some people can just treat animals like this. There are even people that claim to be animal lovers, but they are constantly consuming meat products, saying that it is super delicious and they would die if they are not able to consume these food again.

    These people are just so contradicting, they say they love animals, yet on the other hand, they are killing these animals.

    I really hope that Herbie is now fine and has a carrying family to take care of it. It is just heart breaking to see news like that.

  5. Ong Moh Mei on Feb 26, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    There are many people who yet believe in karma, reincarnation and lower realms. Even if one does not believe these, it is unnecessary to be cruel to animals. It does not show our superiority over another species but only our ignorance and stupidity.

  6. Wei Theng on Feb 11, 2013 at 12:10 am

    It’s really sad to hear about Herbies. How could someone do such cruel actions to a dog??!!!
    Lately through Rinpoche’s sharings and I started to look around. I learned that animal abused is not new and it’s happening everywhere. What I cannot stand is a lot of animals are abused and abandoned by it’s owner! I just can’t imagine why someone wants to have a pet but will just treat it like a toy and abuse it! This action is worse than an animal!
    I believe we have to create awareness to solve this other than just help whichever animal that we saw. I will share this and will support more group that create awareness to stop animal abuse.

  7. Davin on Jan 15, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Can’t believe that there are actually people out there who can abandon a dog after abusing it so badly. This is so cruel. It really hurt to see how much suffering Herbie had went through. My prayers to Herbie that may he live out the rest of his days in loving and safe surrounding.

  8. pavara on Jan 13, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    we should not harm these animals because they have feelings too.so can everyone donate for herbie please!!!!!!!!!! share this post with people you see.together we can contribute for herbies causes.we should share this post even if we dont have facebook.(there are other ways example through gmail.)

  9. Kim on Jan 13, 2013 at 1:24 am

    It is always disheartening to see all these cruelty acts on animals.
    In these modern days, humans are still behaving like those in uncivilized stone age era.

    Over here in Brunei, CAS (Care and Actions for Strays) is also constantly trying to rescue the sick, abused and abandoned stray animals.

    For the past 9 months or so, there are many fatalities, exhaustion and tears as CAS is fighting hard with canine distemper outbreak
    and many CAS sterilized dogs in foster homes and feeding sites have been affected in one way or another because CAS could not afford the regular vaccination costs.

    There are some CAS Activity ‘sales’ events from time to time,
    trying to raise funds for the strays by selling some merchandise
    and also create awareness to public to love animals and sterilize their pets but apparently these are not enough to cover the huge medical bills incurred!

    Do check out on CAS Facebook when free : http://www.facebook.com/careandactionsforstrays.com

    CAS is in desperate need of support now
    Please help spread the word, smoothen the path for the CAS animals please?

    Thank You!!

  10. Frederick Law on Jan 12, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    It saddens me to see Herbie being abandon for his conditions, the previous owner is just heartless. Thanks to the kind officer who notice Herbie and take action into helping Herbie instead just pass through. Am happy to hear that Herbie now is doing well and eating, lets prays and dedicate the merits for Herbie good health and swift recovery.

  11. Jutika Lam on Jan 12, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    I just can’t believe that they are such stupid people in this world that would abuse an animal just for the sick of it or for entertainment purposes. Take one of the most viral case of Dog abuse in Malaysia i know, Sushi the Toy Poodle and guess what the whole reason they abuse? Just to make it stand on it’s Hind Legs. Seriously my thoughts are

    1. That the Malaysian Government is not taking any stern action on people that abused animals in Malaysia.

    2. Why would people want to abuse animals when they won’t get anything out of it except Bad Karma?

    3.Some Governments don’t even care if their citizens or arious Governments in the Worldtourists that visit their country abuse animals. It is their responsibility and yet they do nothing.

    4. Animals Abusers should be taught what it is like t be abused, and then serve their sentence.

    5. Goverments in the world should be taught what is abuse like a an animal’s point of view.

  12. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 12, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    Herbie has cancer too, just like human, whatever sickness we have, they have it too, would we abuse another human physically like how we abuse the animals? can’t we feel their pain too?

    Herbie is brave and strong, he been through a lot, now let love befall onto him, let our voices reaches him, he needs support, physically and mentally. Let us do our part and send our prayer to him.

  13. AdelineTan on Jan 11, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    How can a person can be so cruel to an animal? It brought tears to my eyes when i saw the pictures of Herbie in such a traumatic conditions.Thank goodness Herbie now is well loved and well taken care of, prayed that he’ll have a long and happy life.

  14. Karen Chong on Jan 11, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    There is no excuse for abuse and cruelty to animals. If we human afraid of these treatments on ourselves or loved ones, then we should not inflict such hurt to any living organism. No one deserves such excruciating pain.

    The education for the young generation is important. Strong morals like compassion and kindness should be imparted to the kids. Here’s a FB page set up by a few beautiful and dharmic young kids. Please support this cause: https://www.facebook.com/AnimalBefriendersCoalition?fref=ts

  15. Sean Wang on Jan 10, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    I really wonder how could someone do such evil things to such a gentle creature. I hate that cruelty like this happen. People should be more aware of the amount of cruelty happening to animals worldwide. It is not just dogs, but cats, birds, livestock.. THEY ALL HAVE FEELINGS. They all feel pain. Just like Herbie. I have done some prayers for Herbie. Hope he has a good life and nice next one!

  16. abby f on Jan 10, 2013 at 11:14 am

    If you think that human beings are superior to the animals, then act like you really do by protecting them please… Why abuse someone who can’t even fight back?

    Superior should be showed in the way of, we take good care and protect all the animals. If animals could protect human beings, example for this point: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/amazing-dogs-protected-human-baby.html and http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/stabbed-in-between-the-eyes.html , then why say we are superior to animals if we abuse and ignore them?? If we continue to say we are the most superior creatures on this planet but we keep abuse and ignore the animals, then we are just like gangster. This shows that we are uneducated because this is too illogical. We should be humble and more loving to animals and the planet, then yes, we are superior because we capable to take care the whole planet, we take good care and give love and justice.

    Stop abusing animals please!

  17. Leann Lim on Jan 9, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    Can’t believe Herbie still alive under this worst conditions. Really cannot understand why the person can treat a life in this cool blooded, heartless behavior. They never respect life,where is their humanity.

    But in the other hand, there is still caring, compassionately people around the world. They giving their love hand to help suffer beings. Their action is comfort and warming our heart. Thank you for all of them.

    We must share out all this news, severe reprimand abuser. To aware everyone including kids, this is not right. May Herbie free for suffering the rest of life, happy and healthy.

  18. Carmen K. on Jan 9, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    What would make someone abuse animals, I do not know. If mankind can hurt and inflict pain on one another without blinking an eye, then I am sure hurting anything else is without a doubt.

    Such is the cruelty, and terrifying nature of what mankind can be. I am not surprised. Love, compassion, kindness, and care arises from caring for those who can’t speak for themselves first. Why? Because then you know totally that it is not for selfish gains. Caring for animals is an excellent way to develop compassion. Abusing them shows what kind of animal humans can really be sometimes.

    I’m glad that Herbie is okay now, though he’s having a battle of his life. At least it is under great and sincere care from those around him.

    There are many Herbies out there still, just as how many kids, older people, women are still being abused. As long as there are humans, abuse wouldn’t stop. It is our duty to prevent these cases happening as much as possible and to educate society, from young, to love and care for all of our furry friends around the world.

  19. HelenaC on Jan 9, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    I hate to see all these animal abuse news, make me very sad, and heartache why can human do this to these helpless beings??!! It is such a cruel act!! No compassion, heart, humanity, morality at all!!! So sad to hear about Herbie story 🙁
    Hope he is well not although he has so much sickness now, may he always bless by the 3 jewel and no suffer in the future and have a good rebirth in next life.

  20. patsy on Jan 9, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    This is unbelievable. How can anyone who is sane do this inhuman action? Herbie must have gone through a lot of abuse and torture for a long time to be in this condition. Poor doggie.

    My prayers to Herbie that he will have love and care for the rest of his live.

  21. K T GOH on Jan 9, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    It is such an inhumane act to treat animals in this manner. My heart pains and my stomach nearly throws out when I see Herbie in such a condition. This reminds me the first time I watched Earthlink in Kechara that was 2 years ago, I could not swallow food properly into my throat for nearly 2weeks. Imagine watching the sharp knife chopping and slashing on all the animals/fishes throat and watching them bleeding to death. From that time onwards changed me immediately to become Vegetarian.

    I hoped the owner of Herbie be arrested and convicted of this heinous crime.

    4 years ago I rescued a puppy who was only about 3 weeks old. Puppy walked into my garden with a huge swollen eye and one part of the body hair missing. In actual fact, I do not like dogs but when I see this puppy, my heart immediately saddened and quickly rescued and nursed his swollen eye with aloe vera which I planted in my garden. Later on I took the puppy to the Vet to check on his eye and was confirmed ok. After more than one year with me I was told by an elderly friend to give away my dog because dog gives me bad luck. I told that person how can I give away when my dog was so loving and grateful to me and did nothing wrong to me. We shouldnt blame on the dog when things goes wrong, we should blame ourselves. I always tell my dog named – Lucky, that he is my priority and till death do us part. Wherever I go, I will make sure his meals are not missed etc.

  22. Joy on Jan 9, 2013 at 1:31 am

    Humans can really be worst than an animal at times. We have the potential to love and protect those around us, those are weak and those who are less capable, yet we abuse our power and we betray our best friends. I am so disgusted by whoever is Herbie’s previous owner… I am sure there is “karma” and I must say I hope he gets his karma soon. How can anyone be this cruel we may ask… well we should not ask because up until today we still see many outrageous cruelty towards animals all around the world.

    Herbie is just one of the many millions hurt and abuse daily. If we really do care, we can start first by educating children from school right up to adults. We should have stricter rules and laws to arrest those that abuse any animals. We should stop the animal trade industry and if possible, we should stop eating meat all together. All this adds to creating awareness and a collective movement in preventing animal cruelty. May Herbie case gives us the opportunity to show compassion in action. And if we don’t like animals… at least we don’t cause pain, harm and hurt as we would not like it happening to us. So vice versa.

  23. Girlie Ooi on Jan 8, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    People get away from causing harm to other human beings; what more harming animals who can never voice out the pain and hurt they have to suffer.

    May Herbie live out the rest of his life with love from those looking after him.

  24. beatrix ooi on Jan 8, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Oh dear.. How can people treat animals this way? When they don’t talk or fight back doesn’t mean they do not have feelings. Inside them, it hurts. The world will be a much better place if the people change their perspectives about dogs/animals and treat them as our friends or even humans. Abusing/slaughtering a dog is the same as abusing/killing a person,both of them are living beings and they deserve to live..
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  25. Lim Han Nee on Jan 8, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Herbie’s swollen head and malnourished condition and all the evidence of severe abuse testify to the cruelty of humans who would neglect and abandon and harm these furry animals who cannot speak up for themselves.

    I am happy now for Herbie that he will spend the last days of his life being cared for by rare loving people. Above all he will no longer be in pain. Despite having a tumor in the brain and cancer, may he continue to live the rest of his life in peace, being surrounded by much love and care.

  26. Milly on Jan 8, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    It is so unthinkable in today’s society that man is so cruel and treat their pets or animals in this manner. Herbie must have suffered for a long time to be in this condition now. One can literally count his ribs. How will we feel if we are treated like this. Stiff punishment must be imposed to prevent innocent animals to be treated so badly. May Herbie live out the rest of his days in loving and safe surrounding.

  27. jennifer on Jan 8, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    How can anyone do this to another living being ? It truly pains me to the core to see the photos and read about Herbie’s condition.

    I really want the person who did this caught and charged for committing such a cruel act. I’m just so angry and saddened how people can be so evil – i have no other word to describe such an action.

    My prayers are with you Herbie and lots of love to you .

  28. tenzin llhamo on Jan 8, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    It is really painful to see the pictures. It brought tears to my eyes. I feel so sad for the hurt, pain and karma that Herbie is going thru. How can someone hurt another being like that? Although Herbie is saved but now he is diagnosed with cancer. I hope that Herbie will continue to eat well and recover from the abuse he went thru.
    I pray for you Herbie and the many ‘Herbies’ out there! May you all never have to suffer like that again…

  29. Lucas Roth on Jan 8, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    oh my, i can’t believe that someone would go to the point to do this to a dog. poor herbie. please let him live a better life from now. stop animal cruelty!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. William on Jan 8, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Unbelievable, there are actually people out there who can abandon a dog after abusing it so badly. The poor dog must have been abused and tortured for a long time as it’s body is only bones and skin. It takes a long time to be in that state. Poor doggie who has to fight to survive. Herbie is a fighter.

    It must be someone who does not have a heart for any living being. Even for me who is not an animal lover would not do such a thing to another living being. May the karma for hurting this dog comes back to haunt person who is guilty.

  31. Julien Roth on Jan 8, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    What a cute dog! What kind of person would do this to a dog like this? I wish i could do more to help with him. And im am so happy that he is recovering fast and that the people that are looking after him are nice people. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  32. sarahyap on Jan 8, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Oh dear.. how can anyone treat an animal like a play toy and throw it away when they feel like it…

    Everyone, please please share this on facebook, twitter and even to animal rescuer groups that are well know in your country. I know creating awareness through facebook works as I recently managed to re-home a dog that was about to be euthanize through these social media platform.

    When we share cases such as this, it is for everyone to see and be aware that such things do happen… we are sending everyone a message “Hey look, keep your eyes open coz there may be a being lying on the side of the road that needs your help urgently”

    Please don’t ignore Herbie just because you are not in America and think it is not related to you… there are a lot of dogs around the world that needs people to help them out too.

    Hopefully Herbie will now live a life free of pain until his last.

  33. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 8, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    Humans have close relationship with dogs since hundreds and thousands of years ago. As a result of this, dogs have very close relationship with human beings as compared to other animals such as chickens.

    Dogs seldom attack people, unless they fear of threats. They cannot speak and they are vulnerable to many actions that humans do to them. They will fight for their lives, but in many cases they do not win. It is very sad to see this.

    Humans have the tendency to harm or put their weight over those whom they perceive as useless and vulnerable, even if these beings have genuine cares and love inside them.

    I once came across a similar case of abandonment in my neighbourhood. Two dogs (One big one small) were left at road side early in the morning at 6am+. According to information given by a kid, he saw a car left these dogs and hussed them away when these dogs were trying to get back to the car. If this is true, I couldnt believe how cruel their owner was and how badly these dogs must have felt. These people left the dogs near a hawker centre, so maybe they just thought that somebody would feed these dogs with some left over foods everyday. True enough, there were still some kind souls who really did this. Their temporary place was full of foods. Without getting much into details, these two dogs were taken away after a few days, I was told that somebody drove a car to pick them up. I hope they are now in good hands.

    I pray for Herbie’s well being and happiness, and that he will have endless love showered on him for as long as he lives in this world. May he suffer no pain as a result of his cancer and the associated treatments.

    Dogs give unconditional love to us. What they need are very simple and what they are capable of giving is more than what we can believe and imagine.

    I have recently adopted a dog from Romania, she was found wandering lost in a market place. Not sure how she came to be homeless, she looked like she had been well cared for, but would not survive a winter on the streets there.

    My sister has set up a facebook page to help put prospective owners in touch with dogs and cats looking for a forever home. If anyone is interested let me know and i will sort out the details for you.

    Another person there (Romania) has set up her own rescue shelter and would be greatful of any help for food, blankets, beds etc

    There are lots of “Herbies” out there, if you can why not help one find a loving home.

    • tsemtulku on Jan 8, 2013 at 5:49 am

      Dear John, so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. If you give me more details and pics re the new shelter that needs food, blankets and beds, I would be happy to blog about it and create awareness. How is the postal system in Romania please? Tsem Rinpoche

      • john on Jan 9, 2013 at 3:27 am

        Dear Rinpoche,

        The sanctuary is called “Sava’s Safe Haven” they have a web page, a facebook page (which is where i learned about them, and a youtube account with videos of the rescued dogs and the shelter they have built.

        My sisters facebook page is called “paws of hope” which people can post about dogs and cats needing a new home or help with vets bills etc for strays. It was a post on here that led me to adopt my dog 🙂

        The postal service seems pretty good in Romania, my sister sent some Christmas presents to a friend there from the UK (where we live) without any trouble.

        The “National Mill Dog Rescue” page is worth a look too on facebook, some more people doing good work!

        I will try and post a picture on your facebook page of my dog.

        John 🙂

    Sometimes I wonder why a person can do such cruel things to animals. It is totally unnecessary and nobody gain anything out of such actions.

    It is good to hear that Herbie doesn’t have to suffer from hunger anymore, thanks to everyone who help him out of this nasty situation. Even though it is sad to hear about his eyes and cancer, at least he is not suffering from hunger anymore.

    Please help to share this news on the social media with the motivation to educate people not to abuse animals!

    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

    Beautiful and famous story of a learned master Geshe who loved butter . Even though he loves butter so much yet as he has kept his commitments, and engaged in Dharma studies, doing sadhana and retreats he is able to ascend to Kechara Paradise. Wow ……the Geshe’s attachment was transformed into a powerful aspiration to take rebirth in a Pure Land.
    Butter tea is a traditional Tibetan drink and it is severed in all household has become a necessity. There are many benefits drinking butter tea such as at high altitudes , boost immunity and energy ,an appetite suppressant and so forth.
    The goal of any spiritual person is to strive towards attaining self-realization. We should be free from anxiety and distress, unencumbered by frivolous affections, and liberated from specious attachments. Nothing in life is permanent. Keeping our commitments, and always engaged in Dharma activities. Once we dominate ourselves through consciousness, the attachments disappear. Attachment comes from the accumulated past. The things we are attached to are no more than shadows of the past. The story of the Geshe indeed an inspiration and example for us .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this beautiful post.

    Foie gras is a specialty food product made of the liver of a duck or goose. Well its as an expensive, and luxury foods for some and only sold in high-end restaurants. Eating foie gras is unhealthy for humans. If one have seem how it was make , one will definitely not eating it. Duck or goose are kept in small crowded cages cramped together. This is accomplished by force-feeding corn to the animals using a feeding tube. Can imagine how cruel, pumping pounds of grain and fat into their stomachs causing the livers to swell and abdomens become distended. They mistreated and tortured inside foie gras factories all over the world. Now more countries came to realised the painfully method and begin to ban the practice of foie gras production. Nothing can describe such barbaric practice nor can such practice ever be justified. Celebrities like Roger Moore and so forth are now using their fame to speak up for the good of others. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness.

    Watching this rare video of Oracle tells all. Its fantastic indeed. I have not seem one yet hopefully in future. Consulting oracles has been practised since ancient times. In Tibetan Buddhism the practice is special unique and even till to this days consulting oracles continues to play a major roles in the lives of practitioners. Oracles serve as a guide for Tibetans in political decisions, predictions about natural forces, healing and so forth. They are also sometimes used as protectors. It was the oracles that gave the Dalai Lama specific advice on how to escape Tibet during the Chinese invasion in 1959. Many oracles used to be present in Tibet, but their numbers have decreasing as a result of various factors. Interesting watch….a rare video.

    Is it right? Well its not right most of us would said it. Life is life’s greatest gift. The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Love the animals , they are one of us. No matter how few possessions we own or how little money we have, loving wildlife, caring and nature will make us rich beyond measure. Animals are our friends and companions. Choosing vegetarians on our menu is the right choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, a reminder for us to give love and care to all animals. Do not harm them ,go meatless at least .

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.
    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".

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about.

Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
