How do you feel about this?

Jun 20, 2013 | Views: 2,167

 

There are many types of people out there. But one thing is for sure, we are all not the same. We come from different backgrounds, upbringings and cultures. But it’s confirmed none of us would like pain, experience pain or even think of pain. Who in their right mind would enjoy pain? No one. Pain is something that brings tremendous displeasure especially when it’s physically. Imagine someone cutting you, burning you, decapitating you, skinning you or cooking you while you are still alive? Well this is what we do to others. Imagine their pain.  

There are cultures that due to ecological conditions they have to rely on meat. I don’t agree but I understand. But to kill an animal is very bad, but to do it slowly is really the ultimate in sadism and cruelty. And if it’s for fun or just our taste buds, it’s equally cruel. What type of cruel mind can slowly kill an animal for just the taste buds? I certainly can never do this. 

See this video. Share with others. I stress to share it with others. Don’t say it’s hard to watch. For every piece of meat we have eaten, we owe it to animals to see what they go through to fulfill our taste palates. We owe it to them and their pain. 

This is one of the most disturbing videos I have ever come across. I repeat humbly to share this with others to create awareness. Please social media this all over. Create awareness so this happens less and less. I thank you ahead of time.

I suspect the place is in Japan in a restaurant. I could be wrong.

Let me know what you feel.

Tsem Rinpoche

这世界上有各种各样的人,有一点可以肯定的是,我们都不是同样的人,正所谓“一种米养百种人”。我们来自形形色色的背景、文化、成长环境,但有一点放诸四海而皆准的, 就是没有一个人会享受疼痛,想要体验疼痛,或根本就不愿意去想它。有哪一个正常的人会享受疼痛?没有。疼痛,特别是肉体的疼痛,是一种极度不适的感受。试想像你活生生被别人用刀切割你、用火烧你、砍断你的头、剥你的皮、或把你扔火里煮。然而,我们却真的把这些种种在别的生命体上执行了,试想想他/它们的痛苦!

有些文化里基于环境的原因而必须依赖肉食,虽然我不赞同,但是可以理解。杀害动物已经是很坏的一件事,更何况让它们慢慢的被折磨致死?那是终极残忍的。为了满足我们的口腹之欲或纯粹为了玩闹而折磨它们,也是同样残忍的。谁会有那么一个残忍的心肠来为了满足口腹之欲而慢慢折磨动物致死?我是永远也不会这样做的。 

看看以下的视频,然后传给你的家人朋友,我强调,您务必传给其他人。不要说您看不下去,我们为了满足味蕾而所下肚里的每一块肉,我们都亏欠那些动物。我们亏欠他们,和它们所承受的痛。

这是我看过最令人感到不安的视频之一。我再重复一次,希望您们能传给他人看,提高人们对此残忍作为的意识。请把此视频在网上到处广播开来,提高人们意识,希望类似情况越来越少发生。谢谢您们的时间。

我猜这是在日本的一家餐馆内发生的,但我不是十分肯定。

让我知道你的感想。

    Total cruelty. These people do not care about other living beings at all. I can hear the laughter on the background when the octopus is moving away from the hot pan. How can they even eat and killing the octopus alive. We human are selfish and cruel. We bring so much pain and suffering to others just to satisfy our taste bud.

    We should stop eating meat and be a vegetarian.

  2. Samfoonheei on Dec 12, 2017 at 11:19 pm

    That is cruel , what those dinners did to the poor octopus. I will never eat it ,how can they do t. Maybe that’s the way they cook it and eat. Errr not me
    Have heard from my friends when they visited Japanese restaurant ,which they saw. It seem nobody from their group dare to eat it.
    First time watching this video live cooking of the octopus , horrible act, so inhuman. Those dinners seem to be have a lot of fun , How can they
    be so selfish to torture other beings for their pleasure . But I do hope the authority can stop these type of cooking in future. Choosing to go no
    vegetarian is the right choice. Never harm or hurt any animals .They deserved to live like us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    i hate it when people do this kind of stuff, it is so horrible and how would they like it if they were painfully burned alive then cut up, alive, while being laughed at? people need to stop being so selfish and think for others. it is all for taste and happens again and again. please become vegetarian and stop this. it is sick!

  4. jerry_sito on Oct 3, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    感恩仁波切的分享,祈愿佛法能在每个人的心中增长,让我们觉悟,让我们明白,我们既然都不想承受痛苦,那么我们就要开始学习不要对别人(一切众生),给予他们痛苦

    我不敢想象他们以后会有怎样的果报肯定是惨不忍睹。希望这一些人和餐馆老板早日接触佛法了知因果。以免在继续犯下去了

    感恩仁波切的开示,在您的慈爱教诲下,总是让我们学习远离恶业,并让我们透过分享您的开示,从而帮助更多的众生

    I have to admit, I could not watch beyond 15 seconds of this video. I’m generally not a squeamish person, but this video really disturbed me.

    I’m no saint myself, I used to eat meat when I was ignorant, but I was never this sadistic.

    When I think about it further, to revel in this kind of barbaric activity requires some effort. I mean, doing something like this isn’t “natural” for us and it’s a little hard to imagine that people would actually acquire the taste and palate for live sentient beings, cooked alive with an extra dose of “suffering & torture” on the side.

    And then capture it all on video. Madness.

    No sentient beings should be harmed for our taste buds. Why should any precious life be snuffed out for a mere 15 minutes of our “enjoyment.”

    Madness.

  6. Lucas Roth on Jul 19, 2013 at 11:48 am

    i feel so angry because knowing that there are so many evil and horrible people out there. i am so happy that i am a vegetarian and a person that respects animal rights. please stop animal cruelty!!

  7. Jeffrey on Jul 15, 2013 at 5:04 am

    How horrible it is to see! So cruel, inhumane. I wonder what those doing it would feel if a big octopus were to stick them on a flame pit and cook them alive? It made me cry!!! And we are called homo sapiens? I see nothing intelligent in such a senseless act; only sadness. Thank you for sharing it, Rinpoche.

  8. nicholas on Jul 12, 2013 at 1:30 am

    Just imagine if we are the one being cook in such a way, how do we react and how much pain we going through?…..
    If we can imagine the pain what do we think the real pain that the octopus experiencing?

    How can we be so selfish to torture other beings for our pleasure and attachment?

    That’s is all wrong. If we don’t want others to hurt or harm us we should stop being one.

    What comes around goes around. If we killed regardless of whatever being we will suffer from this action.Just the matter of time when the karma ripen.

  9. yenpin on Jul 7, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    人为了吃一时短暂的口感,慢慢地将一条生命折磨到死,,,,感受到它的痛吗?人为何那么的残忍,听到章鱼哭着求饶吗?被人慢慢地折磨到死,好痛苦!人为了吃,用尽所有方法来残杀动物,为什么人类如此残忍,同样是生命,不要伤害动物,不管什么理由。动物也有生存的权利!我们应该成为素食者。今天就开始吃全素吧!

  10. Patsy on Jul 6, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    This is disgusting. How can these people enjoy eating their meal without thinking of the pain and suffering the octopus had to endure to satisfy their taste buds? Heartless!

  11. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Jul 4, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    It did happened in a Japanese restaurant, they are speaking in Japanese (I can understand a bit.) It’s sad to see that people has to use this kind of “CIY” (Cook It Yourself) methods to attract more customers. It’s sympathetic to see them having fun of cooking and eating it, enjoying cooking the octopus alive out of boredom is simply not nice. Enjoying tormenting and seeing other living beings suffering are simply cruelty. When one of the guy who is laughing and saying “jikogu ya” (literally means “This is hell”) is so creepy and send a chill to my heart. They don’t just simply enjoy the food, but as well enjoy creating a living hell to other beings. It’s sad that people’s mind are so deluded that they enjoyed the suffering of others.

    May they be able to understand that animals has feelings too. May their mind be clear and have the fortune to meet as well practice the Dharma and compassion for other beings. May the octopus rest in peace, and take a good rebirth to be able to meet and practice the Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this to create awareness of animal cruelty.

  12. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 3, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    My dear Lama

    I have been a vegetarian for almost 11 years. It was on impulse at first, but I think as time goes by, it is the right decision. I do not regret it at all. I think it’s a positive karma ripening 11 years ago that caused me to be a vegetarian that I am today.

    Valentina

  13. Lucas Roth on Jun 30, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    this is absolutely horrible, they are so mean and they have no thought for others. one mans hand was in the poor octopus’s head and they kept laughing and i was so disgusted and i am so happy i am a vegetarian. please spread awareness about animal cruelty and hopefully one day it will all stop.

  14. Joy on Jun 29, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    Totally disgusting humans! From this video you can see that they have fully committed the 4 complete actions (intent, executing the action, rejoice and wanting to do more) to receive the karmic repercussions to be reborn like the octopus in the video and probably will be burned alive just like what they did to the octopus.

    So this also makes me wonder, what was the type of karma the octopus did the octopus do in his past to receive this kind of results? On our side, we should never hurt or harm anyone or anything… for karma will definitely come back…. so I pity the ones who feast and glorify their killings for the pleasure of their taste buds.

    They are usually very selfish, cold and egoistical humans who think they own the world. When I think and realise what karma they will reap later, instead of getting angry at them which is pointless, we have compassion for them by well, lets start by educating them and we ourselves send a strong massage by going vegetarian, that could be a start 🙂

  15. AdelineTan on Jun 28, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    It is very sad and heartbreaking to see the octopus being grilled to death slowly on the dinning table just to satisfy the taste buds of some of these ignorant human beings in this video,they seemed to be enjoyed doing it from the way they laughed, so cruel! All beings have feelings too like us, do not inflict any harm on them, hope this video can help create awareness to prevent cruelty to animals.

  16. Cliff on Jun 27, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    This is extremely disturbing, it is extremely heart wrenching, it is so sad to see a bunch of people holding down a living creature, fact to be one of the most intelligent creatures in the animal kingdom, by chopsticks to cooked alive. I can’t bear to imagine the level of pain the octopus is going through, nor can i imagine what it must have looked like in its point of view as it sees surrounding it people glaring at their dinner whilst still alive. This is truly sadistic to a very concerning level. What kind of mind is capable of allowing themselves to cook that octopus alive. I can’t decide between feeling sad or angry. Thanking for sharing this video Rinpoche and spreading the awareness.

  17. sweekeong on Jun 26, 2013 at 12:22 am

    This video is very hard to watch. The people is enjoying roasting the poor octopus under the fire before their meal, a feast. I would imagine that the octopus is under tremendous suffering fighting to stay alive but to no available, under the hands of these people. One can imagine what is running through the mind of these people such as ‘I cannot wait to taste the delicious fresh of the octopus’. I was a meat eater as well. It didn’t occur to me that how the chicken and other animals suffered a horrible living in the farm and then meet with their death under man-made killing machines. This is one of the hardest video to watch because the octopus is slowly being killed and cut up to pieces while still alive. It is very sad for the octopus and the people who lack the wisdom to know their actions is a cause for future suffering.

  18. Shin on Jun 25, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    It is already very sad that human eats other animals although there are many choices and food is abundant, morever, to put the poor animal through so much torture for pre-meal’entertainment’?

    An octopus’ eight arms are covered with thousands of suckers that taste as well as feel, and they are very intelligent. Octopuses can navigate their way through mazes, solve problems quickly and remember those solutions.

    How sad that we treat other animals as “meat” and nothing more. What’s the point of studying biology & educating our children and encouraging them to watch National Geographic/ Discovery channel to learn how wonderful/ intelligent/ similar they are to human other animals are, when they end up on the dining plate anyway?

    Perhaps it’s time to relook at curriculum of formal education and see how we can change and not make ‘saving our environment’ just a hype. We do not have to wait until an animal is near endangered to protect them. Every being is ‘endangered’ because it has a mind of its own.

  19. Edern Tan on Jun 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, i also think that it is in japan, from their language and stlye of plates and cooking methods. the octopus had a strong will to continue surviving until the end where its limbs are being cut off. why do these people have to do this to the poor octopus. how can they enjoy eating that. That did not even care about how the octopus is suffering and they are laughing at it.
    i hope that one day all thing sufferings of the animals would end.

  20. Teo Chor Kai on Jun 25, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Disgusting. Men amuse themselves at the expanse of others. This world has many sick people. Mankind has progressed but mind has degenerated.

  21. Jayce Goh on Jun 25, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Imagine, when we awake that all sentient beings have been my mothers, will we do this to our mother ? Not anymore …..

  22. grace (KHJB) on Jun 25, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Thank you for the sharing. we as a human being always being selfish and only thinking ourself. we don’t like the feeling of pain yet we never apply the same feeling on other being.Stop this cruel action by taking vegetarian..

  23. jimmy tan on Jun 24, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    我开始不知道这一些人的良知跑到哪里去了。简直就是不可思议,我不敢想象他们以后会有怎样的果报肯定是惨不忍睹。希望这一些人和餐馆老板早日接触佛法了知因果。以免在继续犯下去了 。我已经po上面子书了。但愿更多的人看见。感谢仁波切与我们分享。

  24. Leonard Ooi on Jun 24, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    This is disgusting video- and now I truly understand why one wants to become a vegetarian. Tho’ Im not a vegetarian but Im eating less and less meat now; and after seeing this video: it makes me want to vomit out the meat I have eaten. But I know one day- I will be a vegetarian(soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video.

  25. Felix Kong on Jun 24, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Super cruel .. Why they can torture this octopus before to be their food . When i watching this video, i’m imagine that i was the octopus , totally painful . Should give them Dharma Teaching , don’t hurt animals anymore . Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

  26. Sharon Ong on Jun 24, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    My sincerest apologies. I just could not watch the video till the end. I just could not bear it. I could almost physically feel the pain of the poor octopus. I can imagine the sheer terror it must have felt trying to get away from the BBQ and cruel hands pining it down. I started going vegetarian/meatless in April this year and this video reaffirms my decision to strive for a life time of vegetarianism. Senseless killings such as this must stop.

    With folded hands.

  27. wei theng on Jun 23, 2013 at 5:20 am

    Previously, I might be happy eating BBQ (dead) octopus and like the taste of it. However, today i find it disgusting and difficult to watch the video as I can feel the pain of it being BBQ alive! Just imagine I’m on the hot plate… gosh! what a hell! Thank you Rinpoche for showing me what is right and what is wrong and I can be a vegetarian now and not committing more negative karma.
    May all living beings be free from sufferings!

  28. Karen Chong on Jun 23, 2013 at 1:06 am

    这部短片不止让人看了不安,还真是气急败坏!人类就为了那味蕾的几分钟快感,残忍地抹杀了动物生存的权利。动物不能表达他们的感受或反抗,并不代表我们就能为了自己的利益而够剥夺他们的生命。在佛教的角度来说,只要我们让一个生命没办法存活,就是杀生。 杀生的罪孽是非常大的。

  29. Carmen K on Jun 22, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    If this were you, how would you feel to be slowly tortured. If you think the piece of steak, or the chicken chop or the grilled octopus just happened to end up on your plate just like that – think again.

    People say that it is okay to eat meat because you didn’t kill the cow or the chicken. Think again. It is BECAUSE OF YOU and the NEED TO SATISFY YOUR SENSORY PLEASURES, that the cow was killed. You demanded for it, you get it. You ask for meat, and you just killed an animal.

  30. abby f on Jun 22, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    The scariest thing is the people who is killing this octopus are still laughing and they literally sounds like can’t wait to eat the octopus! They have no feeling at all besides craving for the meat. I just can’t imagine what makes them such a person. Very sad.

    I don’t know how to let these people understand the pain they gave to that octopus, by showing them Earthlings video?( http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/earthlings.html ) or this? ( http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/if-slaughterhouses-had-glass-walls.html )

    And somehow I feel regret too for eating meat for so many years. But that’s not the point, everyone can change for better. Spread the awareness of against animal cruelty, make vegetarianism mainstream and go all the way with it. For what is benefiting others, we just do and be firm.

    It is not hard to feel the pain. Imagine people cut you, burn you and hurt you like what Rinpoche said. If we can’t the pain, then why give it to others? Don’t deny it, don’t avoid it. Watch the video and feel it……

  31. William on Jun 22, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Disgusting! It is very obvious that the people do not have feelings for the creature and only cared for their stomach. I could not imagine the pain it is going through, dying a slow death being tortured and burned. BEtter be vegetarian than to accumulate bad karma which leads to a death like the octopus is suffering from!

  32. Jay Jae on Jun 22, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Just thinking about this makes you think how sick the human race can be. We always justify that we need food to sustain ourselves at the expense of others’ lives. Where is our conscience? When I watched this video, I just turned in disgust but at the same time I saw how much suffering the octopus is going through which does not make his death any better.

    Would we want to have such a long, terrible death like the octopus? Definitely not, but then why impose something on others which we wouldn’t do onto ourselves. We all have a nature of love and care for ourselves and others, why is it absent here?

  33. June Tang (KHJB) on Jun 22, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    When I watching this video,I feel disgusting and why those peoples so CRUEL ? How come they can torture the octopus by burning while it still alive !! How can they can enjoy it? I wondering if they know “they are the creator,will experience what they create” they still can enjoy this ?? Please never make another being suffer to satisfy our taste buds !! Please kind to animals,Stop eating meat,go vegetarian ! “If not now ,WHEN?”
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video to reminding and teaching us never harming animals by any reason !!

  34. Vinnie Tan on Jun 22, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    This is just disgusting. They are watching the animal being in pain, crying for help, trying to escape from that torture, yet these men they can just laugh about it. I do not even know if by saying that they are men are the correct term.

    Even after physically torturing that poor octopus, they still eat it like the flesh of it is so delicious. It is just so sick as the soul of the octopus might just be looking at itself, while the men are eating it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us, allowing us to know that how torturous it is to even look at it, not to say it it.

  35. adeline woon on Jun 22, 2013 at 2:26 am

    My heart sinks when I watch the video. Eating animals itself is already very bad. What more to torture and cut it when it is still alive? It is very sad to see how far people will go to fulfill their never ending desire. It is no longer a case of eating animals, but a case of animals cruelty. The whole scene reminded me on a person who died in car accident by getting the hair stuck under a vehicle’s front wheel and then being dragged on for miles before he finally got ran over and got his head smashed into pieces. Then those Japanese speaking people in the video laugh and cut his corpse into pieces and eat it with most likely soy sauce and wasabi. That is totally UNBEARABLE!

  36. Lim (KH JB) on Jun 22, 2013 at 1:56 am

    So disgusting, can we just imaging that we put our hand on the fire?? How the pain?? The octopus is like playing by the eaters before to feed their taste bug…

    I wish that the restaurant will stop this kind of service and more and more peoples can be vegetarian as soon possible to avoid animal harm hence avoid for create bad karma.

    If we feel hard to be vegetarian why dun we start from less meat then slowly turn to no meat… May more and more peoples every way able to get to know Dharma to save more and more sentient beings…

  37. Wah Ying on Jun 21, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    I have the the experience of eating raw meat, but when I saw this video clip of cooking a lively being to death slowly to make it as my food, my feeling is it’s so uncivilised and cruel. I feel the pain of the octopus as it is one of the person I know. I am so grateful that I was exposed to Buddha’s teachings, no longer the ignorance person that doing something hurting another beings and take it as “normal” and “natural”.

  38. Lim Han Nee on Jun 21, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    They grill a live octopus, and, oblivious to its pain, prod and dig into it with such gusto and relish!

    With mouth-watering zest,they cry out in excitement and impatience, for the octopus to be grilled fast enough for them.All the time, the octopus is dying slowly tormented by the heat of the fire.

    So nauseating and disgusting! Just imagine, the table turns on them when their karma returns to them. Then, we’ll be seeing them, being burnt and grilled like the octopus!

    How peaceful the mind is when one is eating vegetarian food. No turbulent emotion of strong demented attachment to the food.

  39. KYC on Jun 21, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Sharing this video will help to create awareness of the need to stop cruelty to living beings. This is cruelty to animals carried to the extreme. Animals also wish to be happy and have a long life, just like us. They don’t want to suffer just like us. It is sad to note that in most cultures, there exist dishes where the animal or seafood is cooked alive or bled to death alive. Craving for such dishes must be removed in order to stop the suffering.

  40. Jessica Yap on Jun 21, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    How would you like to be placed on a hot pan and forced to stay there while you’re still alive, then they burn(cook) the living daylight out of you and after they’re done torturing (and by torture i mean cook) you, they sprinkle some salt/ajinomoto/whatever where your taste buds are and continue burning you some more.
    Lastly, while you think you’re dead, but you’re not, they cut off your limbs and devour you like the animals they are. How you like that? Yum!!

    Even if we are not vegetarian, we would still feel disgusted.
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Rinpoche.

  41. Choongs on Jun 21, 2013 at 9:56 am

    A very good reminder and shock to the system. Reminds me about a video long, long time ago which I viewed where patrons at an eatery were eating the brains of a monkey while the monkey was still alive and strapped to the center of the table with its scalp removed. Think about this in your head and you will certainly turn vegan.

  42. Rita van der Wijden on Jun 21, 2013 at 3:42 am

    Om ah hung vajra guru pema siddhi hung. Om ah hung vajra guru pema siddhi hung. Om ah hung vajra guru pema siddhi hung.
    This makes me cry and reciting the mantra.

  43. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 21, 2013 at 2:21 am

    How can people so scary and cruel? They just want to fulfill stomach desire and then burned the animals they want to eat in fire. They are even enjoy the food and enjoy to torture the animals which suffered extremely pain in the fire!!!

    How can people so cruel??? Can stop eating animals by burning them???

    Can we just stop eating animals and become a vegetarian to collect merit for ourselves?

    Can we??????????????

  44. lewkwanleng on Jun 21, 2013 at 2:17 am

    It is quite difficult to finish watching the whole video.. this is direct killing for sole purpose of satisfying the taste buds. What make the whole video even more sad is that people are enjoying during the process, despite seeing the octopus being in pain 🙁

    If we cannot be vegetarian, at least don’t harm the animals.

    I consider myself very lucky that I meet Kechara and become vegetarian immediately. It has helped me to stop so much negative karma for harming animals…

  45. Sharon Saw on Jun 21, 2013 at 1:18 am

    This is such a terrible video. I wanted to stop watching but since Rinpoche advised to watch it to the end, i did. What is worse is that Octopi are extremely intelligent beings (see this article
    http://www.orionmagazine.org/index.php/articles/article/6474/ ), which says “researchers who study octopuses are convinced that these boneless, alien animals—creatures whose ancestors diverged from the lineage that would lead to ours roughly 500 to 700 million years ago—have developed intelligence, emotions, and individual personalities. Their findings are challenging our understanding of consciousness itself.”

    I think people don’t think (or like to think) of animals as having intelligence or feelings, which is why we treat them this way. it’s like in the ancient times when people treated slaves badly – the slave owners really thought that the slaves were ‘animals’ and sub-intelligent and had no feelings. This sense of superiority causes human beings to inflict so much unnecessary harm to others, who actually do have feelings and intelligence. How horrific.

    Until human beings realise that animals have feelings and experience pain, they will continue to exploit them and so many of them will suffer tremendously. Karma will always prevail though so whatever we inflict on animals, directly or indirectly, will eventually come back to us.

    Thank you for sharing this video because it is so important to not be desensitised to the suffering we inflict on others. How shameful for human beings to allow this kind of inhumane behaviour. Who is the animal indeed.

    • David Lai on Jun 28, 2013 at 5:56 pm

      Gee Sharon,
      That’s interesting findings you have there. I am sorry but I am kinda desensitized to the tragedy in this video perhaps, its because I probably find it difficult to relate to the alien-like appearance of an octopus. However, I do find myself wishing the octopus would put on a bigger struggle against these guys.

      Its sad that they are enjoying themselves because that seals the negative karma to experience the full brunt of the repercussion of such an act. I think, we as human beings have to evolve already. We have to develop kinder and more compassionate ways of living that are compatible with the future. We cannot be still living in our cave-like existence of killing for sustenance. Hence, I think veganism and vegetarianism is the lifestyle of the future and it shouldn’t be confined to just a religious or even environmental concern.

    We live on this earth with other animals and have the gift within us to choose kindness over cruelty.Why would anyone want to torture and kill an innocent soul?
    My heart cries out for the octopus and other animals caught up in very sad,inhumane miserable act by humans.The easiest way to fight animal cruelty is to report it once spotted.
    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    Oh my god!!! That is so disgusting!!!!
    I would have beaten up those people if i saw that its just so mean!!
    Just imagine you were that octopus and you were burnt and your legs were cut off?! That really a lot of pain.
    Is this video enough to stop you from eating meat?!
    If this video is not enough to make you become vegetarian why don’t
    you read this post?http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/earthlings.html I saw this video in kechara house before and i kept feeling like throwing up it will really make you become vegetarian just by seeing these animals get cut and then left to bleed blood.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

    好为了残忍, 无法继续再看下去了!想象自己是那章鱼,就好像身在地狱道,好痛苦!人类为了那一时短暂的口感,而慢慢地将一条生命折磨到死,,,,你们感受到它的痛吗?你们听到它哭着向你们求饶吗?你们听到它那用尽浑身的力量,但也无助的嘶喊声吗?
    别再别再伤害动物了!

  49. tenzin llhamo on Jun 20, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Oh my Buddha! I can imagine how in pain and confused the octopus was! It really broke my heart to see the video. How can people be so cruel and yet not know it? When we get burned slightly, we’d writhe, imagine the octopus! The worst part was when they keep pushing it down and exposing its brain.
    In the end, nobody wins for Karma comes back no matter how. Imagine the samsaric cycles they have to go through! I really do pray for them…

  50. Gim Lee on Jun 20, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    Last week I watched this same video on a friend’s Facebook’s timeline & re-post it on my niece’s timeline… she said the video is too terrified to watch, so she deleted it.

    This is hell on earth… being grilled while still alive. Whether they are Japan or Korean or Chinese in this video makes no difference because these are the nations that love to eat animals alive: fish, octopus, shrimps, etc.

    If you must eat meat, why can’t you inflict less pains and sufferings to them?

  51. Jutika Lam on Jun 20, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Oh my Buddha!!!! How could such a thing have happened?

    I just could not believe my eyes when I even saw the first 20 seconds of the video.

    It is just so disgusting to see such a “uncivilized” act in such Modern Times…..

    It is really so sad to see an octopus not even being killed before being cooked but being BBQed alive…..

    I just can’t believe the pain the octopuses have to go through.

    I am so angered at these few people not only are they grilling an octopus alive but as their doing it they are also laughing and they seem to be having a great time doing the killing.

    Who actually would have a great time killing???? I just don’t get it but I hope that this video will go viral and also a ban that if anyone caught doing such a thing will face high charges for animal cruelty.

    As if normal killing and cooking meat is already bad enough now there are another bunch of silly’s to BBQ an Octopus alive….. Don’t they know the pain and what it is like to be grilled while you are still alive?

    MAY THIS PEOPLE WHOEVER THEY MAY BE SUFFER THE SAME FATE IN THEIR NEXT LIFE!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very disturbing article and may everyone soon become vegetarians:(

    Love
    Jutika

  52. Adrian Chow on Jun 20, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is so cruel, i can’t imagine the amount of pain and suffering the octopus was experiencing. It is comparable to the ancient way of torturing, whereby they would put the prisoners into a bull’s stomach (Sculpture) made out of metal with the fire burning below. Imagine the victim was being cook slowly and bit by bit the meat was burned. Just imagine that, and it is exactly what the octopus was experiencing minus the ‘Bull’ and the screaming voice. Horrible…

  53. edward ooi on Jun 20, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I’m 99% sure that they are Korea because I’ve watched Koreans eating live baby octopuses and I also learn Japanese from school. I wonder how can these Koreans be so cruel to animals. They even laughed when they grilling the octopus. How fun is it when you slaughter animals, it’s no fun at all. They grill, cut it to pieces and eat it when the octopus is still alive. How can anybody do that?

    • mdwtk on Jul 7, 2013 at 2:24 am

      Does it matter whether they are Japanese or not? Human beings are still human beings. Amitabha.

  54. KC Tan on Jun 20, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    This is real torture. Its a painfully slow death and those culprits should imagine as if they are the octopus to be burnt and incapacitated to death. Man should be the guardian of all life on Mother Earth but they have abused this position.
    This is disgusting ………

  55. Sahanshila maharjan on Jun 20, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Thanks…

  56. beatrix ooi on Jun 20, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    This is very disturbing. Imagine that if eating meat from dead animals is already a very bad thing to do, then what about eating the animals while they are still alive? The octopus must really be in pain! I hope that people stop killing and eating animals as they do not deserve that.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  57. hecelus tan on Jun 20, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    These people are creating heaviest negative Karma but they don’t felt have any problem with their own action. We can be a freethinker but we must believe in Karma. Karma has nothing to deal with religion but it includes in every religion, without Karma our whole world will become horrible because everyone don’t need to take the responsibility on what they have done.As a human being,how can we harming others just for our own selfish, impermanence happiness.

  58. Sean Wang on Jun 20, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    This is absolutely disgusting. People are truly on of the most despicable creatures if not the most. There is no way they could not figure out that the octopus is feeling pain unless they are mentally stumped.

    As I was watching the video, I was wondering how could people enjoy this? Does pain satisfy you? Why do they have to do this? It is not about being full but being sadistic.

    Thank you for sharing this, Rinpoche!

  59. Tat Ming on Jun 20, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    A living HOT HELL if you want to name it.

    Observing the indescribable and extreme pain and suffering that this octopus is enduring, we will not want to be reborn in that realm of existence in samsara! How could these consumers be so inconsiderate and heartless to inflict slow and torturous pain to the octopus just to satisfy their taste buds? Due to their ignorance, they are creating the causes to be born in the same state as the octopus in the future!

    Have compassion for the animals! Most of all have compassion for yourselves if you are still a meat eater!

    STOP EATING MEAT! GO VEGETARIAN! GO VEGAN!

  60. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jun 20, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Oh my… another sickening video. This reminds me one of Rinpoche’s
    previous blog post http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/sheer-torture-cooked-alive.html …. I wonder how they could eat them…

  61. tfreon on Jun 20, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    I was eating my dinner when i saw this video. Look at the plate of food i am having. I am so glad that i am a vegetarian.
    Yet, I still feel disgusting and even become angry on what have these people done. The poor octopus really struggle on pain and died. On second thought, i pity those eater. Out of ignorance, they did this.
    And what is the awaited karma for them. If we believed in rebirth and karma, will they become the octopus next life and killed with this method?
    I will definitely share this video. Even if my friend will go angry with me for sharing these. But i think is time to wake them up on the “actual” meat they are eating. How the meat been process. Actually not much different, this is seen by the diner but in the kitchen is the same thing happen.

    • Bountanh on Jun 21, 2013 at 3:19 pm

      What a disgusting video that I’ve ever watched! This video really makes me feel sad about how people have treated to a pitiful octopus. Supposing that, we’re that octopus and somebody is burning, cutting and eating us while we’re still breathing. Definitely, we would feel painful and tormenting. Honestly, I believe that “we’ll reap what we sow”. I do believe that the Karma is exist. As I have learned that the Karma is our action or behavior and it’s composed of two types of Karma: Bad Karma and good karma. This is your option to choose what’s best for you in this life and next life. I do believe in reincarnation. Though I’m not a complete vegetarian yet but I’m trying my best to be it from now on.
      Anyway, thank you very much for sharing this video I surely believe that this video will less or more awake them from extreme wrongdoing.

  62. Yvonne Yap on Jun 20, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    看了就会叹气。。。。。。。。为何人类是那么的残忍!吃的当时!完全没有想过别人,只想填饱自己的肚子,没想过!!!如果自己是那只章鱼的话!还会边烤,边玩,边嘲笑吗!!!!!太过分了!!!!!
    开始吃素吧!

  63. Erik Yeh on Jun 20, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I’m glad that I’ve turned vegetarian full time, ever since my visit to Kechara last month. I feel committed more than ever and I thank you once again for opening my eyes and really challenging my conscience. I know it is still a very small step for me (compared to where I want to be in the next couple of years) but I do believe eventually I will find another way. Just because I can’t see it now, doesn’t mean it’s not there. I will forever keep the faith and my prayers.
    Sincerely with folded hands,
    Erik

    • Jayce Goh on Jun 25, 2013 at 2:01 pm

      Erik you must have some good karma and merits to have met Rinpoche and be able to help you take on the right direction and mind set. Glad to know and I rejoice very much for you and your family!

  64. Julien Roth on Jun 20, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Oh my god! this is disgusting, how can people be so mean? They would obviously know that the octopus would have been in pain. I couldn’t bare to watch the whole thing, i would have thrown up. Throughout the whole video, i was thinking to myself what i would do if i saw people doing this. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story for Mipham Gönpo. Although at the age of 80, he did not give up and very determined to follow his Guru to learn dharma. Many would have gave up and provide various excuses about the health condition but he showed us that we should have full trust to our Guru and persistence will gain result.

    Since we are not able to control our rebirth, there will be tendency that we may not have the chance to meet dharma in our future life. Therefore, we have to take the opportunity to practise dharma especially when we have the Guru, dharma centre and a human body.

    Dorje Shugden is an enlightened Dharma Protector who manifested about 400 years ago from a lineage of erudite masters. Many High learned attained great Lamas, Tibetan Buddhists all over the world have been practicing Buddhism relying on this powerful Dharma protector ever since. Many great lamas and practitioners cannot be wrong in their practice. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership against Dorje Shugden for the last 20 years is unnecessary. Those thousands living in exile scattered over Europe are speaking out on the history, background, politics of this ban. A great way to bring awareness to others who are doubtful of the ban. It is important to speak out the past , to prevent future mistakes and history to be repeated in some ways. Well history can provide others with insight into the ban and learn from past mistakes.
    Geshe Jangchup Gyaltsen a respected monk for over three decades keeping his vows of monkhood has bravely spoken up the truth. Logically telling thousands of Tibetan Buddhists at the Europe Tibetan Public Talk about the ban . Many of them holding to their democratic rights to speak peacefully that’s a great approach.
    Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. We should learn from history, and the past mistakes.
    .Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding once said by Albert Einstein .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Shantideva, the eighth-century Indian saint and scholar , was a prince who became a monk and studied in the legendary Nalanda university. He was always very devoted to Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom. The people in Nalanda Monastic University tried to expel him as they thought he was a disgrace to them due his laziness been doing nothing. When the time came for him to give the teaching, he supressed every one by reciting ‘’The Way of the Bodhisattva” from his mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring read.

    Conceptualised by Tsem Rinpoche, Ms. Li Kim had produced a few series of paranormal TV series that were broadcasted in Asia. This paranormal series is very educational, it is not the type that scares people but to open up our mind to things that cannot be proven by science. All I can say is science is not above all. In fact, there are still many things science cannot explain but Buddha had explained them very well.

    Watching this interesting paranormal show to learn more about the unexplained, mysterious phenomena.

    In Mongolia, there was also a trained oracle who could take trance of Dorje Shugden, Nechung and Tsui Marpo. He was called Chojin Lama, who was also the brother of the 8th reincarnation of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu. It is quite interesting that Chojin Lama was taking trance of Nechung at the same time. So back then, Nechung and Dorje Shugden didn’t have any conflict at all until recent years.

    Dorje Shugden may be painted in different styles, but the iconography is still the same as described in the scripture. Therefore it is safe for us to download a copy to make offerings to or to bless our environment. Tsem Rinpoche is always so creative in bringing Dharma to people. Thank you Rinpoche for making it so easy for us to get the necessary for our practice.

    If we are a serious Buddhist practitioner, we have to always choose our guru. We see our guru as the Buddha and our spiritual guide, he is here to help us get out of sufferings and to achieve enlightenment, he will never harm us. No one else has the capability to do that. When we have found our teacher, we have to be loyal to him, always think of his kindness. Our guru is not related to us by blood but he is very kind to take the responsibility to teach us and guide us so we can transform our mind and be happy. We must always remember his kindness and never forget, never abandon our guru.

    Vegetarianism has become very popular for the past 10 years, I was more exposed to vegetarianism by then but I was still eating meat until I have started to read more about animal cruelty on Rinpoche’s blogs. It is very heart-breaking to see how the animals have to suffer before ending up on our plate.

    Since I have a choice but the animals don’t, the only way for me to help them is not to eat meat so there will be less demand. By cutting down the demand for the meat, we are helping to reduce the suffering of the animals. It also is a way to develop compassion. Most importantly a vegetarian diet is a healthier choice as it reduces the risk of getting cancer and heart diseases.

    The 4th Takpu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was the guru of Pabongkha Rinpoche. He was the one who traveled to Tushita heaven and received the Dorje Shugden practice from Dorje Shugden himself. The practice was then passed down to Pabongkha Rinpoche. Apart from having a vision of Dorje Shugden, the 4th Takpu Pemevajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was said to have direct visions of sixty-two deity body mandala of Heruka Cakrasamvara and Tara.

    The Egyptian pantheon of Gods is probably one with the most complex stories and legends which are largely associated with the underworld or the sun. Osiris, the God of Death thereby is one of the most significant ones. It is very interesting to read that Osiris was killed in a violent and brutal manner because of the jealousy of his brother. It goes to show there are jealousy and afflictive emotions in the god realms too. It is very interesting to note that the Egyptian believed that offering to the God of Death is obligatory as the offerings feed the God and in return humans will be bestowed with blessings and protections.

    This is great info. I have this problem a few years back and sometimes the pain can be intense and I have to take painkiller. I am lucky that I have found the right treatment and advise from a physiotherapy. While acupuncture treatments help but it only relief the pain for a short term. I think it is always important for us to know the cause and be aware of the position when engaging in any activities even as simple as standing and sitting. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this info.

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.

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

    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
