How brutal

How can some people be so brutal? What do they get out of this brutality and violence. You must see what happened  to Tara. Remember to never harm animals in anyway. They cannot defend themselves against us and we get nothing from harming them.

Saving Tara the dog

Tara has been living on the streets 30 days on the streets of India with two open fractures!!. WE ARE GOING TO SAVE HER!

by Viktor Larkhill   

 

untitled

 

It´s been a week now since I first saw this image. Standing on her two hind legs, a dog is given some food by some kids in India. Both her front legs are broken, open fractures. Her bones are sticking out of the bandages trying in vain to hold her legs together.

Tara, was brutally attacked by a thug with a steel bar, about a month ago and left crying for help on the streets of Patiala, Punjab, India.

Anyone would be overwhelmed by shock and emotion when imagining her pain. Despite their best efforts infection has spread through the tissue and bone. I knew that, despite the incredible efforts of her carers, the Guardians of the Voiceless, Tara would be condemned to a double frontal amputation and a life on the streets crawling on her chest as a handicapped dog.

I have been following their work for months now, armed with barely more than the purity of their spirits they are always there, doing life saving treatments to absolutely destitute animals. It´s awe inspiring. This amazing group of people embodies the spirit of Let´s Adopt! and Tara was more than they could handle.

We had to save her.

I asked our friends in Delhi to speak to them and tell them we would help her with Tara. Their response was incredible… total joy!. They knew Tara had absolutely no chance on the streets and they welcomed our help.

Tara was immediately driven to Delhi and we started her evacuation procedures.

The plan is as daring as it gets. I will be personally flying to India on Wednesday morning. I will arrive to New Delhi at midnight. From the airport I will go where Tara is being cared for, clean and prepare her injured legs for the journey and fly back that same evening.  Literally, in and out.

24 hours in India to save Tara.

Please watch this video… it was taken at a Veterinarian in New Delhi and it sadly shows the reality of veterinary care in India, that is, a an amazing amount of love but very basic means and lack of proper health protocols. I cringe when I think of a veterinarian doing Tara´s cures without the use of simple gloves, but that is precisely what Guardians of the Voiceless and ourselves are fighting against. And that´s why Tara must leave India.

I went on this trip knowing Tara and I were not alone. We both knew you were behind us.

It´s to you that Tara owes her life. To fly around the world for 24 hours to rescue a dog with two open fractures? Who does this? We do… Because this is who we are.

Monday 9 June..

Tara has been operated.  Her bones were in a terrible condition, very infected. We had to cut small sections in order to ensure proper healing. Everything has gone well and we are very confident she will run again. HOWEVER, the next few weeks are going to be critical. We will be monitoring those legs looking for infection and possible vascularity issues.

Please join me in this around the clock effort to save the life of this incredible dog.

Join us, help us save Tara.

Many thanks!

Viktor

P.S. PLEASE HELP ME ON THIS MISSION BY SHARING THIS POST ON FACEBOOK

P.S. After Tara has been rescued and her fractures have been fixed she is going to need an extraordinary family that wants to provide her a forever home. PLEASE, if you are the family Tara never had please write to me on viktor@myletsadopt.com

    Don’t Take My Mummy Away!

    Look at the poor baby chasing after the mother. Why do we do that to them? It’s time to seriously think about our choices in life and how they affect others. Be kind. Don’t break up families.

    Heartfelt sadness looking at those pictures of the poor Tara having all the painful injuries.Why Tara to suffer so much, was brutally attacked by a thug,she was left in the streets for a month with opened wound.Only later she was rescued and her fractures been repaired by one kind sole Victor.One inspiring man who took the trouble all the way flying 36 hours to save Tara who deserve love and care like any other sentient beings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article and reminding us to care,kind,loving and compassion to all sentient beings. As there is many more homeless and abandoned dogs that needed our help.
    (Love is being kind to all beings)….said by Rinpoche.

  7. Chris on Feb 15, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you for the team that saved Tara. It is hard to believe that anyone would impose such horrible harm on such a lovely dog. It is good to see that Tara now is healthy and living in Rinpoche’s blessed land, Kechara Forest Retreat. Thank you Rinpoche for providing a safe place for all those poor animals in KEchara Forest Retreat.

  8. Beatrix Ooi on Feb 6, 2016 at 3:53 am

    Poor little Tara, she is such a sweetheart but the amount of pain she had to endure is just too much, even normal people like me definitely will not be able to make it through. India is a big country and sometimes in poverty places, their animals are very skinny and in most of the cases, badly injured due to the busy traffics on the road.

    I am so glad to know that she was rescued and treated with correct treatments and physical support from fellow humans. This is a very inspiring article to read.

  9. Vinnie Tan on Oct 13, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    It is just so horrible that people would be abusing animals like this. Not only it is cruel, but it is also saddening that the animals in India are not able to get proper medical treatment, suffering in such a manner. I rejoice that Tara is being helped, but many other dogs or other animals are not be able to receive that care and love. Hopefully, medical facilities in developing countries can improve in order to save more animals and not have them suffer in this manner.

    I just cannot understand why would people want to harm animals that have no protection at all. I can understand if they would be scared of them, but even with fear that is no excuse to be abusing them.

    No one should be abusing any animals. Just imagine us being in their situation where we are being physically abused, then left to die.

    I pray that the authority in India would take legal actions to people who abuse animals or even human beings. It is not ethical to be even doing such things. I strongly believe that we should always show love to others. Even if that person is our enemy, we have to show our compassionate heart and try our best to love them only looking at the positive side of theirs.

  10. KYC on Sep 6, 2014 at 9:47 am

    Cases like Tara are really tragic. It happens everywhere in the world. In this case, it is in India. From the pictures, we see some Indian boys taking care of Tara as best as they can and a vet cleaning Tara’s wounds, apparently also in India. But do we see the writer in India taking care of Tara? No. We only have a photo of him at the airport. Which airport? Where is he from? There is a video which cannot be shown in our country. Why? I think I need more information before I offer my help.

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 21, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    Dogs can really smile their warmest smile. I had a dog I rescued from a broken leg before, and he was patient through out his ordeal and the smile you get once he recovered and was out of pain was priceless. Kudos to the great people who rescued TARA.

  12. louise lee on Aug 16, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    请大家停此暴力!

    你可以讨厌全天下的每一个,你总不能够杀掉全部你讨厌的!

    提醒每天你讨厌谁谁谁。。。。。。不如放过自己去想你喜欢的!

    希望 Tara 可以很快的找到好主人。

    也在此希望大家,不要因为一时的快乐就去买小宠物回来,不喜欢就把它们丢到街上去!其实领养的小动物也非常的乖巧!

  13. Hee TS on Jul 15, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    I feel very sad when seeing poor Tara suffered so much of pain. Luckily a kind person treated her and she has recovered. The world is still full of love and caring!

  14. Julien Roth on Jul 14, 2014 at 1:52 am

    Let me just start off with how amazing Victor is. I am so happy that there still are people like that in this world. And that there still are people that care about animals so much. I also cannot believe that people can be this brutal. How does one just beat a dog so badly and leave it there to die. Shame on them, this makes me truly sad. But thank god for people like Victor.

    Victor is amazing. He is my idol. I find it so amazing how he would travel around the world to save this one dog which he had read about on the internet. He put in so much time and effort for on dog. And i admire this. I wish i had the same about of compassion inside of me as he does. I would have never been able to travel all around the world to do this.

    I also think that Tara is truly a special dog. She did not deserve to be treated that way, no animals deserves that. People need to come to their senses that they need to stop doing this to animals and that this is wrong. How can you just leave a dog to die after beating it so brutally? i don’t understand. If i had seen this happen in front of my face, i would react furiously and it would not be a very good situation. I also hope that Tara is well taken care of and that after her surgeries, her wounds are now okay. And i want her to have a good home with a good family to take care of her, she deserves that. And i am sure she will get it.

    After watching all the videos i realise that some people really do care about animals. Once watching the videos about treating the dog and rescuing it, i felt so happy. And i now have learnt that i must be good to animals and treat them well. The positive videos have just made my day and has made up for the fact that there are people in this world who treat animals like this. I will always know that people treat animals like this, but at the same time i know that there are also people who help animals. And this makes me, and i am sure Rinpoche, very very happy.

    I am very happy that Rinpoche has found this article about Tara by Victor and shared it on his blog. This story about how one man can make a difference to the life of a dog is amazing. And i have learnt a lot from it. I hope that many people feel the same. Rinpoche should share more things like this on the blog as it spreads awareness about animal cruelty, and hopefully some day animal cruelty will exist no more. Thank you Rinpoche.

  15. Lucas Roth on Jul 7, 2014 at 12:48 am

    It is extremely sad to think that some people just go by this dog and don’t have a second look, on the streets. There are only a few good, caring people out there. This is very brutal indeed and like Rinpoche said, they cannot defend themselves against us and we do not earn anything when we harm them. We need to care for these animals, they are on this planet with us.

    But there are people out there… like these people and I think it is extremely amazing how these people are so selfless and they just did all this work flying everywhere for this dog’s well being. Amazing people and they do it even though this dog cannot say thank you or that they are so kind, they do it because they care and it is the right thing to do.

    Animals are lives like us and I think that they deserve amazing lives. Tara is getting better and that makes me extremely happy, and I do love animals and have a tremendous respect for them. We should care for animals and help them because not everything is about us, and they live with us so we should care about them. Thank you to the people that helped this poor poor dog, you are amazing.

  16. Low KHJB on Jun 28, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.It is great to know that there are those who really cares for those poor animals that are weak and helpless.They are not only sharing empathy but go all the way without even thinking of the expenses of trouble to save a life.A true act of compassion of the highest form.
    May mr Viktor and his team who share his enthusiasm be blessed for their compassionate effort to save Tara.We certainly hope poor Tara could live an independent life again.But this time with the knowledge that not all human are bad and may Tara find a good master this time around…..

  17. May Ong on Jun 23, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Even to those who don’t like pets or animals, don’t hurt them. If we accidentally hit them, just pick them up and send it to the vet. That is the humane thing to do.

  18. Beatrix Ooi on Jun 23, 2014 at 1:46 am

    Poor Tara, it must have hurt a lot! How could someone do this to a helpless being? I really do not understand which part of Tara disturbed that person so much that he had to beat her! She’s just a dog, he couldn’t even let this poor dog go. I hope that Tara recovers fast.

  19. Edward Ooi on Jun 23, 2014 at 12:50 am

    I don’t understand why would anyone do that to an animal. Why beat her up? Just because she messed up the house without having any bad intentions? Or you had a bad day and you happen just to see an innocent dog and you just decided to unleash your anger on that dog? Whatever your reason, you should not harm an animal even though it did something worng.

  20. PB on Jun 22, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    I was one of the culprits who did not take care of my dogs properly. I abandoned my dogs when I shifted home many years ago while I was young. They were homeless and I hoped my dogs were not cruelly treated, and always had food and shelters. I truly regret on what I had done.

  21. Lucas Roth on Jun 22, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    That is so horrible, there are so many animals injured on the streets and i am happy that people are taking up their time to help this poor animal. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  22. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jun 22, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    It was really heart breaking to see Tara being abused. If that person still a human being, stop this crazy actions.May Tara can adopted by a kind family.

  23. Edern Tan on Jun 21, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    The video and thr article brought tears to my eyes… it is unbearing to see a poor dog on the streets with open fractures unable to do anything. Our society need no brutal violence towards animals and we need more of people willing to help animals in need.

  24. Uncle Eddie on Jun 20, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    I reverently salute viktor Larkhill, who manifested the true and pure characteristic of a bodhisattva. It is said, “He who long to overcome the abundant miseries and sufferings of a mundane being, receives immesurable merits.” Viktor has proven himself a well-intentioned person who not only thinks, but does what he thinks by eliminating all pains, hardships and torturous sufferings of Tara, an animal being. He certainly will attract enormous deep gratitude from all who have seen and read the compassionate actions taken by him in this blog. I respectfully pay homage to him whose precious heart and mind have arisen, otherwise, who can have such an Altruism!!! Om Mani Padme Hung.

  25. pavara on Jun 19, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    Oh my god!! Those thugs just don’t have brains at all!! Animals have feelings. If you beet them it hurts you play with them it makes them happy. And just imagine getting hit with steel bars… Who would like getting hit with steel bars. That poor little dog is just steps away from death. I really hope and pray that he will still be able to walk. I really don’t understand why sometimes people can do really bad things. Don’t they know how much it hurts? May that person who beaten up the dog pay for what he has done. May the dog have a swift recovery and forever live without pain.

  26. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Jun 19, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    I salute Viktor from the depths of my heart! May the one who has hurt or cause the sufferings of Tara will repent and saves more animals in the current and future lifetimes. Tara is suffering from pain but she cannot let us know through human language. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  27. sarahyap on Jun 19, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    oh my… such pure act of compassion and selfless dedication to help this poor dog, the rescuer is truly amazing.

    There are many dogs out there that are abused by people, and the sad thing is, these cruel, heartless people that would beat a dog to the point of death is not reprimanded by the law… instead they are allowed to walk free… these cruel people are walking among us! May psychologists have studied that harmful people always begin with abusing animals… the world should have stricter rules and laws concerning animal welfare.

    Not only dogs are abused… but some people would carelessly drive and hit a dog, and just leave it to die on the street! I have seen this once, a cruel person just hits the dog and drives off, not being bothered to see if the dog is still alive or not… unfortunately when the dog was brought to the vet, the vet was forced to put it down because of the excruciating pain it’s suffering and having being paralyzed on all 4 legs. It’s horrible…

    People that abuse animals… people that hit and run… people that abandon their pets… they all fall into one similar category, they’re not good people, period. I hope whoever reads this blog post, and if they have committed such despicable acts previously, would regret and never repeat it again.

  28. Edwin Tan on Jun 19, 2014 at 5:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article to inform us that there are still many helpless, defenceless and injured animals in the streets of the World.

    The pain it must have felt when the bones were broken, the pain it must have felt when the flesh was open, and the pain it must have felt when it tried walking around…how much it had to endure to be roaming the streets for food and survival.

    I cannot imagine…but its will to survive and live on is strong. Such big will power for such small dog…

    I am glad organisations like Let’s Adopt are around to help these poor animals.

    Thank you.

  29. Gopinath Ulaganathan on Jun 18, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    curelty towards animals are very prevalent in our society espicially here in Malaysia . Just a few weeks back there was an incident where Street DOG’s were were killed by battering with iron rods ,this was by a Municipial officer (Dog Cather). Someone manage to record the incident and it was really Heart wrentching and painful to see and hear the poor being being killed . It is really sad to see such things happening in our country , sometimes in the name of religion people kill these dogs which declares animals such as dogs dirty . Many lack the empathy and compassion towards animals and some even openly declare saying that “GOD” created man the highest amongst creatures and that animals are ment to serve the need of Man and that they do not have souls or emotions to know right or wrong , so what is the wrong of killing them to be consumed. Now this is how many people think which results in how many animals are really badly treated . I am very much sad to read this and I PRAY FOR TARA FOR HER HEALING AND MAY SHE BE BLESSED BY THE THREE JEWELS .
    Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma samBuddhassa, May the blessings of the Blessed One, the Exalted One, the fully Enlightened One be upon all sentient beings … N

  30. Karen Chong on Jun 18, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    I really feel for Tara for having such terrible experience before she met Viktor. But how many lucky dogs are there like Tara who would encounter kind souls like Viktor who saves life? The thug just went off conveniently after hurting Tara and i guess this happens quite often as people tend to have less care and responsibility towards animals. Little do they know animals have the equal right to live, just like how we, the human beings strive for a better living. Rinpoche always imparts the values of compassion to all beings and Rinpoche has been practicing this whenever He goes : https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-soup-kitchen-ksk/46417.html

  31. Choongs on Jun 18, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    Many years ago I lost a dog due to human cruelty. Einstein, a petite Chinese Crested male dog no bigger than a laptop which “protected” the front yard of my then home, was apparently barking too much for the thief who was trying to steal my car parked on the roadside. For that, it looks like this extremely cruel thief gave Einstein a huge kick to silence him. I found Einstein dead the next morning with evidence of terrible internal injury and my car window and ignition key mechanism all broken. It is just so sad when humans bully the helpless. And it is so great that others help the helpless.

  32. Shelly tai on Jun 18, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    Very sad when look at this dog who suffer so much of pain and has to go through so much the person who do this should be put to jail that is so inhuman! May the dog get well soon may three jewels bless Tara . Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  33. Joy on Jun 18, 2014 at 6:08 am

    The Indian kids and Viktor are really kind souls, they are like Boddhisattvas on earth helping those who cannot cry out for help! We need more people like them. Hopefully one day Kechara Animal Sanctuary can manifest to contribute to the saving of such lives. And we can all create this cause by first taking on the vegetarian vows https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/i-am-scared-and-dont-want-to-die.html

    Thank goodness for people like them otherwise this poor doggy Tara will surely not survive. And to see her so trusting of humans and still so loving goes to show that animals are intelligent and can feel. It also shows that dogs are so forgiving, more so than humans.

    I hope those thugs who did this will be arrested. To me they are not humans and have lost their sense of humanity. They will face their own karma for doing this.

  34. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 17, 2014 at 11:45 pm

    I really want to cry when I saw Tara broken legs, can you imagine how painful she is? I don’t understand why someone can cause other being suffer so much? I also can think about their motivation behind!!?? Tara just a dog, who is harmless, why do such cruel towards a poor doggie? Why? I don’t understand!!I also cannot get the message the person who hurt Tara tried to send to the world…???!!!

    My personal opinion is the person who hurt this poor doggie, properly is an angersome and have the habituate to blame others. I guessed he or she tried to release his or her emotion towards which he or she cannot get out from themselves.

    Honestly, the people who do this kind of behavior towards a harmless being, he or she consider a murder!

    Every being have their right to live. Tara also a precious being in this universe, so we must respect her even though she is a doggie.

    I really respect Viktor’s kindness, he really practice even though he is a Buddhist. Cannot you believe it, a man flied over from a country to other country just because he want to rescue a dog?

    If you see how Viktor tried to help Tara, please pay some your sympathy and never hurt animal again. If you don’t want to help them but don’t harm please.

  35. Sean Wang on Jun 17, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    Such inhumane and barbaric actions to be done to a dog, this is so sad. I hope that poor Tara will recover.

  36. Jutika Lam on Jun 17, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    I really can’t get in to my head that there would be such irresponsible people in this world that would want to brutely abuse a harmless and innocent dog until such a extent that Tara’s two front leg’s bones are exposed and infected.

    It is lucky for Tara that apart from the thug that abused her there are also people who are willing to literately travel across the world just to lend a hand and help her.

    Hopefully the irresponsible thug will be caught and charged appropriately and that animal abuse will soon become a thing of the past.

    Thank you for sharing this heart aching but yet heartwarming post.

    Love
    Jutika

  37. Paul Yap on Jun 17, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    The person who did this to the small animal only show he is extremely helpless, disturbed, and very weak. Strong and confidence people will love, protect and help the weaker and those who are defenseless.

    Dharma taught us to be good human and help those who are in need. May the person who did this to Tara will soon realized his wrong doing and stop further creating bad karma!

  38. Wah Ying on Jun 17, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    当我看见Tara狗儿腿部的伤口时,吓了一跳,腿骨都断裂了。怎么忍心下得了手?伤害别人尤其是不会说话无法抗议的动物对加害人根本没有好处,反而给自己带来坏处。善心人不辞劳苦千里来相助,我相信对加害者是一种正面积极的“反击”,希望Tara赶快康复过来,同时找到好主人。

  39. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jun 17, 2014 at 3:51 pm

    Poor Tara, it will be eyes wet by everyone while watching this article and video…

    The barbaric actions towards the undefended animals is so terrible, may Holy Dharma spread to ten directions hence more and more peoples may become a better person so the brutal matter can be lesser and lesser…

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    There is no one that can help us, but us. Methods are given, but whether we grasp, apply and practise it is entirely up to oneself. If we don’t change then there is no point in learning the Dharma.
    A transformed mind is our own best protection. That mind can only come from consistent practice over time.When we see results, we will be encouraged to push ourselves more to practice well.Thank you very much for sharing a good article.

    Wonderful news ……the Chinese government has introduced a plan to encourage and reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, It’s a great move that China has done in the effort to avoid runaway global warming and for health reasons. The climate campaigners has been hoping for it. New dietary guidelines by the Chinese health officials have recommend and advise individuals to limit their meat consumption. As more evidence of chronic diseases such as heart attack, strokes ,hypertension and so forth are related to meat consumption. And for most to maintain a healthy life styles. They also implement dietary guidelines encouraging the general public to consume plenty of cereals, tubers, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits as well. The Chinese government also put up billboards in attempt to reduce meat consumption by highlighting health risks associated with consuming meat. What we eat contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and every one of us is responsible. People nowadays are reducing their meat consumption and opting for vegan and plant-based protein to improve their health . Hopefully more countries will follow China reducing the meat consumption. In a way more animals could be save in the slaughter house. And for the future generations to come .
    Thank you for this wonderful news .

    Different parts of the world have each various interesting traditions and customs which individual will celebrate and follow. Religious festivals like Gadhimai festival, which is an animal sacrificial ceremony, and dog meat festival where dogs are slaughtered to celebrate the summer solstice have gathered cultural significance over the centuries. In Gadhimai festival , they believe that animal sacrifices to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai will end evil and bring prosperity. In Spain bulls festival or the Toro de la Vega, bulls are torture and kill. Same goes to the Pero Palo Festival where scared donkey being dragged unwillingly through the packed streets . Drive hunting where dolphins and whales are caught and killed for their meat. All these are some of the hidden cruelty and crime against animals in the world which many are not aware of it and do not want to know. But with social media , more and more got to know about it and are trying to end all these animals cruelty. The Indian officials are cracking down and trying to stop the transportation of animals for this festivals. It is good that the number of animals slaughtered during the Gadhimai festival has dropped sharply over the years. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year is a gruesome display of the dog meat trade. Chinese officials are doing their best and discouraging people from eating dog meat which is harmful in long term. Recent years there has been a drop in the consumption of dog meat in the China. Many people are aware of the abuses and torture of those poor dogs before been kill as meat. Looking at those pictures in the articles, tells a thousand words of all the suffering of these animals in the moment before death.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this sharing raising awareness of animals been abuse , torture and so forth.

    For centuries, humans have been gazed at galaxies and peered deep inside atoms for more answers to the space. No one knows for sure what it is up there. Scientist, astronomers and so forth are busy scanning the skies for more discoveries and seeking answers to the mysteries of space. World scientists are doing experiments in an effort to gain insight of it. After years of exploration , they are still looking for more discoveries. Interesting discoveries……..of the dark energy, eagle nebula , galaxy , UFO and more of what is existing beyond our imagination.

    Peter Byrne is an absolute legend , been an icon, in search for Bigfoot, yeti and Sasquatch or abominable snowmen of the Himalaya. He was a real icon questing for the truth about the Yeti or snowmen. Since his much younger years , he was fascinated in the unknown and the mysterious that turned hunting as a hobby. In one of his hunting trip , he came across a tiger suffering that changed his whole life. From that time he stopped the cruel act of killing animals , ending his 16 years of hunting and founded a non-profit organization called the International Wildlife Conservation Society. He has lived a long and dedicated life in the conservations of animals and in the pursuit of searching for Sasquatch, Yeti and so forth. For decades, he search for Bigfoot, Yeti in the Himalayan has become more of a hobby for him. He has written multiple books on Bigfoot and other aspects of his life.

    This article really inspired me, every year we live is formative year for us as it affects our future life, so we should really let go those bad influence from our parents. What Rinpoche wrote is so true, most of us are either positive or negative after getting influenced by our parents.

    Dharma will make us face ourselves, acknowledge our weak and negative aspects of character and will then guide us to move forward in a positively transformative direction.Thank you very much for sharing this good article with us.

    Ratsag Monastery is a popular pilgrimage site located in the Yab Valley in Tolung near to Lhasa, Tibet. Its a beautiful place located with interesting history behind it. It’s the statue of Vajra Yogini that attracted many pilgrims there. This monastery been built to purify the heavy negative karma associated with Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa (1016-1128 CE) by the locals who is well known for introducing the Vajrabhairava-Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet.
    Interesting read of Vajra Yogini scared statues and about the history of the monastery. May the original statue of Vajra Yogini will be returned to Ratsag Monastery one day.
    I did made a trip last May with friends and saw those beautiful scared statues at the monastery. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.
    Thank you Pastor David for this interesting post with the history of the Sacred Vajrayogini Statue been explained.

    Shailendra Dynasty was the name of an influential Indonesian dynasty that emerged in 8th-century Java. Shailendras were active influencer of Mahayana Buddhism whose reign signified a cultural renaissance in the region. The glorious Buddhist monuments was then built across the fertile volcanic plain named as Kedu Plain .
    The most incredible of them all was the massive stupa of Borobudur which is a very popular pilgrimage site for locals, tourist and Buddhist practitioners. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wow ….incredible it took more than 50 years to complete this architectural monument . Read and heard about this amazing monuments and all the beautiful stone inscriptions there. I have not been there before but wish to in the near future. Interesting read of all about this historical information on the Shailendra Dynasty.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

  • 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
