How brutal

Jun 17, 2014 | Views: 1,018

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.

In India dogs like Tara are called DESI dogs, PARIAH dogs… to us she is not a Pariah, she is Tara, and her life is priceless..

Please watch this video… join me and Tara and our journey until now.

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

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…..

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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

  25. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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

  32. 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!

  33. 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。

  34. 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…

    Mongols believed 5th Dalai Lama was someone else!

    Interesting! Who and why would the Mongolians believe that the 5th Dalai Lama should be someone else? An insight into the politics of Tibetan Religious Hierarchy and treachery that exists even in Buddhist communities.

    Vows: The Roots of All Attainments

    Have you ever thought of this? Why do Buddhists take Vows? What are the benefits and what vows to take? Are vows binding and restricting us from freedom? Find out more from this comprehensive post.

    There are just so many points to prove that the allegation towards Dorje Shugden is a spirit is wrong. Tibetan Buddhism stress on lineage, origins and transmission teaching from the lineage master. How can the lineage master such as Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche be wrong in giving Dorje Shugden practise. If it is so, then HH Dalai Lama would be wrong too since he follow the teaching from his Guru, HH Trijang Rinpoche.

    If Dorje Shugden is indeed a spirit, then all the high lamas would have broken their vow and reborn in the lower realms. But many highly attained lamas reincarnate and continue to spread the dharma for example, HH Trijang Rinpoche, HH Zong Rinpoche and many more.

    Therefore it is important for us to understand the ban and the real reason it is initiated by CTA , of which is driven by personal agenda.

    Do you do meditation? Meditation is a very good way to calm ourselves and our mind down and observe our own thinking. In the UK, some of the schools have introduced meditation session to the school children. In some of the prisons in the US, meditation is also introduced to the prisoners to help them calm their mind. Meditation is not a religious practice but a practice that can be carried out by anyone for their wellbeings. Read here to see how people around the world are meditating for a better wellbeing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for this amazing article. Panchen Sonam Drakpa, in my opinion, is the most erudite and powerful lama among all other Dorje Shugden’s incarnations. He is the only who served as the Gaden Tripa as well as the Abbot of all three major monasteries of the Gelug traditions

    There are no other lamas in the history that manage to do that. This is how good he is. So, how can a high lama with such calibre or attainments become an evil spirit when he dies? Lamas that have such attainments or accomplishment will be regarded as enlightened due to the nature of their work. Minds that have such level of attainments will not degenerate, unlike normal minds.

    Hence, it is not logical to say that the reincarnation of this very same mind which is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen will become an evil spirit that will harm Tibet and also His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is just not possible. Anyone that actually knows a little bit about Tibetan Buddhism will be able to know that it is a lie. That is why it is safe for us to conclude that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector because before he arose as a Dharma Protector, his mind had already reached enlightenment.

    A reincarnated lama will often do things that are similar to what he was doing in his previous lives. For Tsem Rinpoche, his immediate previous life was Kentrul Rinpoche Thubten Lamsang. Kentrul Rinpoche was sent to a remote area in Tibet by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche to spread Dharma. The place he went to was considered a ‘barbaric’ place because people there did not know Dharma. Similarly, in this life, Tsem Rinpoche was sent by his teacher to Malaysia to spread Dharma. Even though there are many Buddhists in Malaysia but many of us do not really know Dharma, so this is also considered to be a barbaric place. Read the article below and you will find more similarities between these 2 life times.

    Is being born in a wealthy and comfortable environment a good fortune? Is it a bad fortune if we are born in an environment where there is a lot of hardships? It is not necessarily true. Many people who are born in a wealthy family end up being a spoilt brat who doesn’t achieve much in their lives. People who have gone through much hardship often train themselves to become a better and successful person. In this article, Mr. Sung-Bong Choi has gone through a lot of hardship in his life but he did not become bitter. He works hard for what he wants and he does his best. Do read about his story here:

    Ann Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart. She was listed as one of the “Top Heavy Metal Vocalists of All Time” by Hit Parader magazine. Amazing she has such a powerful soprano vocal range voice for her age. She sang in tribute to Led Zeppelin where every one in the audience were stunned and moved by her songs. She was one of the most legendary and respected female voices in modern rock music.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a super talented singer.

    Tsawa Pulthok Rinpoche a student of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. He has gone through much hardship, torture and beatings while in detention during the Chinese invasion for 19 long years. Yet he was one nice and respected Lama who kept his monk vows. He has accepted it with no hard feelings against the soldiers who has tortured him. Spending most of his remaining time in meditation, retreats and pujas for the public.
    In life all of us have the right to make decisions and have choices about how we live our life. Making our own choices about the things we do is very important because it gives us the meaning of life to be happy and those around us.

    The practice of Dorje Shugden has been passed down within the Sakya lineage for several generations. Dorje Shugden was first practised by the Sakyas in the early 17th century. There were many other great Sakya throneholders who practised and proliferated Dorje Shugden Tanag within the Sakya tradition. This unique form of Dorje Shugden riding on a black horse can found on numerous older Sakya thangkas. We are fortunate able to see now with this new printing as shown in this post.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It is quite shocking to hear His Holiness the Dalai Lama to talk about refugee should go back to their own country and Europe belongs to Europeans. This is because the Tibetans have been refugees for over six decades now and they are still staying in India. If His Holiness meant what he says, then all Tibetans should move back to Tibet and develop Tibet instead of hanging around in India because India belongs to Indians.

    Why is it okay for Tibetans to stay in India for over six decades while other refugees need to return to their own country? Why is His Holiness being two-faced when it comes to this issue? Why is it okay for Tibetans to stay in India and be a freeloader for so long while other refugees from another nation need to return to their own country.

    Tibetans have been freeloading in India for over six decades now and India still continues to host them. India’s kindness should not be taken granted for and Tibetans should at least contribute back to Indian’s society. I don’t think they will be going back to Tibet looking at the current government and how they are sabotaging their chance to return to Tibet by irritating China with their actions here and there.

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.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
