By Heng Meng Kiat

After watching this 5 short videos, I feel sympathetic towards the misfortune of these poultries and animals.They too are living sentient beings who feel happiness and pain. But why is the treatment towards them so different? Should we assume that they are meant to be tortured and slaughtered just because they are born four-legged with their backs facing the sky and their inability to express themselves through speech? Personally, I think that humans and animals should live together harmoniously. Humans should not be killing and torturing animals. PETA and other animal rights organisations alike, play an extremely important role in protecting the animals.

 

#1 Please stop harming them for the sake of fulfilling our desire of fashion indulgence

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/529.mp4

The first video explains how huge demands towards leather goods is making the cattle industry growing vigorously. With this growth, it means more cows will be and are being slaughtered. The process of killing is extremely inhumane. Picture this: the butcher uses a hammer to strike the cow’s head repeatedly for 6 times, and whilst the cow lay dying, the butcher then plunges a sharp knife right through its neck. It is extremely cruel. While the cow is bleeding, it is still conscious, therefore the pain it endures is beyond anyone’s imagination. Mankind slaughter animals in exchange for a leather belt and leather coat. Is it fair to justify what we are doing to them? Animals are not our clothes. Please stop harming them for the sake of fulfilling our desire of fashion indulgence.

 

#2 Just for a plate of pork slices…

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/525.mp4

The first and second video are quite similar. In this video, the main victims are pigs. Pigs live in slaughterhouses under extremely poor condition with very little space to move around. When it’s time to slaughter them, a pig will be pushed into a narrow space. The butcher will then use a sharp rod to strike its head. Out of fear, the pig will start to scream and struggle. While the pig is dying, it will be hung and its throat will be sliced open for blood release. The scene is extremely disgusting and violent. From the old traditional way of slaughtering to the modern way where machinery is used to aid the slaughter, it all concludes that more pigs are dying due to our craving for their meat. If we are to promote vegetarianism, it will definitely cut down the demand for its meat and slowly, less pigs will share the same horrendous fates. Imagine how beautiful this would be if we could spare these swines their wails in exchange for a plate of pork slices that we can do without.

 

#3 We have alternatives but they don’t…

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/523.mp4

The third video zooms in on the actions taken by Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) which had dispatched an investigator to collect evidences of animal cruelty in Fair OAKS Farm. The newly-born calves that live in the dairy farm are separated forcefully from their mother. Calves that are deemed useless will be viciously killed. Originally, the milk from the cow is meant for its young, but mankind will never find a humane method for milking because the demand towards milk is too high. Having said that, if we could use plant-based milk such as soymilk, almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, walnut milk and any other nut-based milk to replace dairy milk, our reliance on cow milk will be drastically reduced. Plant-based milk are also rich in protein, calcium and minerals. They are especially rich in fibres which aid in proper digestion. If we choose to use plant-based milk, we need not worry about innocent animals getting harmed because of our consumption.

 

#4 Animals do have feelings

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/527.mp4

In the fourth video, we are looking at a car dragging a goat behind it. It is a baby goat chasing longingly after its mother. It is extremely unsettling for me to have witnessed this scene. In the video, people who abuse the animals are cold-blooded. In fact, if we examine it closer, there’s no distinction between the terrorists and them. All sentient beings have feelings. Seeing how the cute little goat wails and watches its mother abused to death, I suddenly feel the ruthlessness of our society. We have to stop eating meat. This video alone proves that animals do have feelings!

 

#5 To realise world peace it starts with developing compassion towards animals

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/531.mp4

The fifth video talks about the operations of poultry slaughterhouses. After watching this video, the only words I can use to describe mankind are selfish, inhumane and brutal. We have this concept that there is nothing wrong with eating meat and that we need the nutrients to sustain our body. This concept that “humans are superior to animals” is absolutely wrong although it is deeply ingrained in our minds. Humans do not only slaughter animals, we will breed them on a large-scale just to kill them to satisfy our selfish indulgence. By abstaining from meaty diet, we are able to develop compassion, it will also help everyone on this planet to develop compassion. In that way, world peace could then be achieved.

My Guru, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has been consistently teaching and guiding students to look at the sufferings of animals and to develop compassion towards them by adopting a meat-free diet. Click on image to enlarge.

To conclude, mankind do not need meat to sustain our bodies, there are many other plant-based alternatives available on the market. Large-scale breeding grounds are not only cruel, they also destroy the ecosystem. Countries, governments and celebrities should go out of their way to discourage meat consumption. Eating vegetables can also enable one to be happy and healthy.

王敏杰撰文

看完这五部影片,我很同情这些家禽和动物的遭遇。它们明明也是会感受喜悦和痛苦的生命,为何却有如此截然不同的遭遇呢?难道四只脚、背朝天、不会用言语说话和表达的生物,生下来就要被虐待和杀害吗?我个人认为动物和人类应该和睦共处,人类不该杀害和虐待动物。善待动物组织(PETA)和其他保护动物的组织,在保卫动物的方面扮演了极其重要的角色。

 

#1 请不要杀害它们来满足我们对时尚衣着的欲望

或在我们的伺服器观赏视频:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/529.mp4

第一段影片讲述消费人对牛皮的大量需求,导致养牛业的蓬勃发展。养牛业的兴起,也意位着有更多的牛只将被杀害。这些牛被杀的过程非常残忍——屠夫用锤子重击牛的头部六次,当牛被锤到奄奄一息时,屠夫再用利刀刺进牛的颈项,实在残忍无比。牛血从喉咙流出的时候,它的意识尚在,其中的痛楚是旁人无法想象的。人类杀害动物来换取牛皮腰带和夹克外套,这样对动物公平吗?动物不是我们的衣裳,请不要杀害它们来满足我们对时尚衣着的欲望。

 

#2 就只为了一盘猪肉片……

或在我们的伺服器观赏视频:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/525.mp4

第一段影片和第二段影片有点相似。在这段影片中,被杀害的主角是猪。屠宰场的猪住在狭小、恶劣的环境中。当这些猪要被杀时,它们被推进一个小空间,然后屠夫用利器刺在猪的头顶,猪会开时惊叫和挣扎,等到猪奄奄一息时,屠夫会把猪吊起来,然后用刀割喉放血,非常噁心、残暴。这些屠宰场从传统的屠宰法,到利用机械屠宰猪只,结果是更多的猪只因我们的口舌之欲而丧命。如果我们响应吃素,绝对会降低市面上对肉类的需求,慢慢的,更多的猪能因此摆脱被宰杀的命运。我们不必用猪只被宰杀时所发出的哀号声来换取盘中的美食,那是多么美好的一件事!

 

#3 我们还有其他选择,它们却别无选择……

或在我们的伺服器观赏视频:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/523.mp4

第三段影片讲述Animal Recovery Mission(ARM)派遣调查员在Fair OAKS Farm 收集虐待动物的证据。奶制品农场的新生小牛都会被迫跟母亲隔离。至于那些被视为“无利可图”的小牛还会被人用极其残暴的方式杀死。母牛的奶原本是给小牛喝的,可是人类永远不可能以人道的方式取奶,因为人类对牛奶的需求太大了。话虽如此,但如果我们能以植物奶,如豆奶、杏仁奶、腰果奶、椰奶、核桃奶和各种坚果奶取代牛奶,那么人类对牛奶的依赖将会减低。植物奶也含有丰富的蛋白质,钙质,和矿物质,而且更富含植物纤维,有益于消化。如果我们选择植物奶,我们也就无需担心无辜的动物因我们的选择而受到伤害。

 

#4 动物也有感受

或在我们的伺服器观赏视频:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/527.mp4

第四段影片中我们看见小羊追着被车拖着的羊妈妈。看到这一幕,我的心里感到万分不安。影片中虐待动物的人的冷血,其实与杀人不眨眼的极端恐怖份子无异。万物皆有灵性,看到可爱的小羊一边哀嚎,一边看着羊妈妈被虐待至死,我顿时感觉世间的冷漠和残忍。请大家停止吃肉,这段影片能证明动物是有灵性的!

 

#5 要实现世界和平,善待动物也是一种必要

或在我们的伺服器观赏视频:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/otg/531.mp4

第五段影片大概讲述家禽屠宰场的操作模式。看完了这部影片,我可以用自私、无人性和残暴来形容人类。在人类的观念中,人类吃肉是对的,因为人类需要动物的营养。这个“唯人类独尊”的错误观念,根深蒂固地深植在我们的思想中。人类不仅杀害动物,还会大规模养殖动物,最后将它们屠杀来满足口舌之快。停止吃肉不仅可以培养我们的慈悲心,而且当地球每个人都有着满满的慈悲心,那么世界和平是可以实现的。

我的上师,尊贵的詹杜固仁波切一直以来循循善诱教导并引导弟子培养慈悲心。其中一个方法便是感受动物所承受的痛苦,由此推广素食主义。点击图片放大。

我的上师,尊贵的詹杜固仁波切一直以来循循善诱教导并引导弟子培养慈悲心。其中一个方法便是感受动物所承受的痛苦,由此推广素食主义。点击图片放大。

总括而言,人类不需要用肉类来摄取营养,很多植物都可以代替。大规模养殖动物不止残忍,而且还破坏生态环境。国家、政府、名人应该广泛号召大家停止吃肉,吃菜也可以很快乐、很健康。

王敏杰已经追随尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切长达13年之久。对仁波切的信心,是在见过仁波切第一眼后便油然而生。对敏杰而言,仁波切的开示非常精深,却非常易懂,也非常适合应用在日常生活中。问及师从尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的最大收获,敏杰不假思索便说:“仁波切的开示和指导使我们的思维更开阔,而解决问题的最佳方法,便是保持内心平静和安忍。

    Thank you Rinpoche and Meng Kiat for sharing the truth about the animals’ sufferings and pain when they are placed in a very uncomfortable living environment, being tortured, being hit and being killed in full of consciousness with tremendous pain in order to feed those who choose to consume meat as their diet. These animals have to go through so much pain, fear and suffering in exchange with human’s desired meat-eating demand, will create a very damaging effect to the world that we are living now because everyday human world will accumulate more and more bad karma to live shorter in life and could have infected with sicknesses and diseases according to the law of karma (cause and effect). Being a vegetarian for everyone will eventually put the animal’s suffering to a full stop and a big help to all the animals that are yet to be bred for food manufacturing industries.

    May no living beings ever suffer or live in pain with fear. May more vegetarians encourage other people to take vegetarian or vegan meals as their daily diet. May all the animals live in peace, be free from being captured and tortured, and happily live on this planet.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Extreme cruelty by all these farmers. Why do they treat animals in such a manner? We human are the culprit of their pain and suffering. If we do not eat meat, demand all kinds of leather goods and drink milk , animals do not have to go through such abuse and pain. We have to change our mind and wrong perception thinking meat is a must consumption for balance diet and that animals existence is to serve human. We have plenty of choice which do not need to harm animals. Choose wisely. Thank you Meng Kiat for sharing this article. Hope it will create more awareness to many that we should stop eating meat and using leather goods product.

    诚如本文标题,很多人的确会毫不犹豫地吃各种肉类,甚至眼看鱼类、螃蟹、虾等在眼前被宰杀,却不敢观看这些视频,这是一个相当耐人寻味的现象。

    我本身曾经也吃肉,所以相当明白很多人在吃肉的时候,其实并不将餐桌上的肉类视为动物的尸体,当然更没去联想那些盘中的肉类在不久前还是活生生的生命。他们会失去生命,只因为人类,也就是你我,对肉类有需求。

    我们当然可以理所当然地说,这是一种自小就养成的饮食习惯,而且大家都那么做,自然而然地我们看惯了,吃惯了,也就不去做深一层的联想。这一个理由也许还是可以勉强被接受的。

    我们可以不假思索地跟随传统过日子,然而,比较让人无法理解的是,当事实被如实地呈现在眼前的时候,为什么许多人却不敢看,甚至不想看也不想听?这背后的心态是什么?我唯一想得到的理由是因为他们太执着于口欲的满足,所以宁可不去知道屠宰动物的场面有多残忍,然后就可以理所当然地“安心”吃肉,以不知者不罪作为逃避的理由。

    事实上,这种做法不过如同掩耳盗铃,你自己假装不知道,并不表示事情没有发生。真实的情况是生命正被虐待和残杀,而你也犯下了间接的杀业,这些都是活生生的事实,不去看不去听,除了暂时让自己感觉好一些,其实对整个情况一点帮助都没有。你既无法保留动物的生命,也无法改变自己是帮凶的事实,而因果是最公平的,自然更不用说了。

    希望大家能以更多的同理心来看待这件事。再不然,请拨出一点时间来认真观看这些视频都好。如果你会在乎自己所吃的食物是否干净,我想,你应该也想要了解这些肉类“食物”被处理的经过吧?!

    Heartfelt watching those videos. Animals and poultries do have feelings like us. Those poor poultries, animals were abuse, tortured before been slaughter for human consumption . The yelling, crying of those poor animals were turned deaf ears to butchers. Sad , very sad….torturing . Animals are better off than a lot of humans, being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude. Even though they ask no questions and they pass no criticisms yet they are such agreeable friends. Animals such as cats or dogs or even alligator are part of our everyday lives and part of our families. They provide us with companionship but also with emotional support, reduce our stress levels, sense of loneliness and help us to increase our social activities. Scientists discovered in their research that modern animals exhibit an amazing genetic, physiological and behavioral similarity to human.
    More and more people are aware of the harm done , are avoiding using animal based products such as leather belt , coat, handbags and so on. People are eating more and more vegetables instead of eating meat for health reasons as well. Good choice. Thanks to animal rights organisations who play an important role in protecting the animals.
    Thank you Meng Kiat for this sharing.

    Kudos for the informative writing. My experience is that it’s an uphill task to influence change in meat lovers. When asked why I choose to be a vegetarian, I observed that any response tends to offend the questioner who is usually a non vegetarian, in a way that they are not for the reason that I am. So I have learnt a new response….I am a vegetarian because I can, and I choose to . If it garners further interest, then we can discuss with due respect to the other’s opposing diet preference 😂

    This is a very useful teaching on how to deal with our negative emotion especially anger. Anger causes a lot of problem to us. To know if we have anger is to examine if we have patience. When we are impatience, it is a sign of anger. I never thought these two emotions are related but it actually make sense.

    When we are impatience, we cannot tolerate other people’s fault. Then we get angry with the things they do or say. Our impatience could be caused by our arrogance of thinking we are better. If we really are better, we should be patience to pass and share the knowledge with others. There might be people who have the attitude problem, but this is not something we can change. What we can change is how we feel and perceive.

    Ram is a Nepalese staff working in Tsem Ladrang for many years. He is hardworking, friendly and polite. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche always sees Ram as part of the big family.

    In mid-2016, Ram’s wife in Nepal who was pregnant for 7 months suddenly developed complications, she had to go for operation due to dislocation of the baby in the womb. Ram’s wife and baby were very weak and in dangerous condition, the doctor had no choice but to operate and take out the baby. The doctor …even said EITHER the wife or the baby would survive.

    Ram was very worried and informed Tsem Rinpoche immediately, Rinpoche’s divination showed that both the wife and the baby would survive, and immediately instructed pujas to be done and candles to be lit for both the wife and the baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s mantra strongly to pray for protection for his wife and baby.

    Founded in 1790, Beijing (Peking) Opera has been the main form of Chinese entertainment for over 200 years. It all started when the Four Great Anhui Troupes went to Beijing to perform for the Imperial Court, with the royal families present. Although in this time and age, this beautiful national art form has to compete with blockbuster films, TV drama series, home-made internet films, MTV music videos etc …many, many people in Beijing and most parts of China still appreciate it.

    The Chinese government encourages the younger generation to participate in Beijing Opera, and like Wang Tao Yang (aka “Wonder Kid of Peking Opera”) many of the younger kids seem to have a natural ability for it.

    Manjushri, whose name means ‘Gentle Glory’ or ‘Sweet Splendor’ in Sanskrit; ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ (文殊师利)in Chinese; ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japanese; ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korean; ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibetan) is one of the most important Bodhisattvas in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

    Manjushri is also known as ‘Manjugosha’ (the Gentle-Voiced One); ‘manju’ refers to how the continuum of his life has been rendered ‘gentle’ by his grasp of transcendental wisdom, and ‘gosha’ refers to his perfect ability to communicate the Dharma verbally and in written form, in which he destroys illusions, delusions and ignorance that keep all sentient beings within samsara.

    Tai chi is a mind-body practice that involves a series of slow, flowing exercises that combine movement, meditation, and rhythmic breathing. Although it was initially developed as a martial art, it’s commonly practiced as a form of “moving meditation.” According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, tai chi’s movements can help stimulate the flow of vital energy (also known as “chi”) and, in turn, promote healing from a variety of health conditions.

    Many practitioners of tai chi use this technique to enhance physical and mental health, as well as to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and strength. In addition, tai chi is said to boost mood, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve heart health.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the importance of making offering to Buddha. Many would not put priority on making offering on the altar as preference is always spending the money for ourselves. But we didn’t realise that making offering is directly helping us in our spiritual path and we would be able to generate merits through this process. We should always remind ourselves not to be stingy in making offering but be very generous instead.

    A revelational read about the ugly politics of Potala. Contrary to the general belief of the untouchable holy status of the Dalai Lamas; they were frail and disposable, especially during their younger years. Based on records, it seemed that during those centuries, it was obvious that if the Dalai Lamas succumbed to the control of the upper few like the Regent and the serf lords, he would live long and prosper. If he had a mind of his own or had ideas to reform, then he would be eliminated. Imagine, if the holiest of the holy had not to exchange his free will for survivor and acceptance by the upper few, leave alone the life of others and the commoners. Thank you for this article.

    Anger can cause many problems to us. It is scary to know sometimes we don’t even feel we are an angry person. We wonder why people are walking away from us, the truth is no one wants to be near us because we are angersome, people cannot get along well with us.

    We have to always observe our mind, don’t let our anger eats us up. We are always kind to people we love but we cannot give the same kindness to people who are not related to us or who we don’t like. In order to cultivate kindness, we have to learn to be kind to everyone, regardless if they are kind to us or related to us.

    Buddhist teachings arrived in the country known today as Indonesia in the 2nd Century CE. Buddhism is the second oldest religion after Hinduism in this region. For the most part, Hinduism and Buddhism co-existed peacefully in Indonesia. Before their arrival, the people in this region believed in animism, the belief in the supernatural power of Mother Nature. They regarded trees and stones as sacred objects and used these for worship to connect with their higher power.

    The Buddhist influence was first introduced by the traders and missionaries from Eastern India who travelled to this region via the ancient maritime Silk Road or Silk Route, a route that spanned from China to the Mediteranian Sea and was central to trading and cultural interaction. Over the centuries, for 2,000 years, the traders and missionaries who travelled along the Silk Road played a strategic role in the dissemination of religious beliefs across Eurasia. The traders often built shrines and temples of their own faith during their travels in order to worship their own gods.

    One of the many fascinating and historical festivals in Malaysia is the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. This festival takes place from the first to ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.

    Throughout this nine-day festival, adherents observe a strict vegetarian diet, meditate, study scriptures, interact with fellow vegetarians, and make donations to the temples to show their devotion to the gods. During this festival, many hawkers and vendors set up stalls around the town to sell food and prayer supplies. Many devotees also take this opportunity to donate to various rituals and ceremonies in order to maintain luck, to dispel bad luck, and to show appreciation for the good luck they received in the previous year.

It is where the the ancient city of Polonnaruwa is located, a place where kings ruled Sri Lanka’s central plains more than 1,000 years ago. It was a thriving commercial and religious city from the 11th to the 13th centuries, and the ancient city has many precious relics and Buddha statues.

    Brief Garden is a hidden paradise in Kalawila Village, located approximately 10 km (6.2 mi) from the resort town of Bentota in Sri Lanka. The garden and the house on the estate was the residence of the famous architect and landscape designer, Bevis William Frederick Bawa (Bevis Bawa) (1909 – 1992). Bevis Bawa was also a military officer by profession, and he served as the personal secretary (Aide-de-camp) to four Governors of Ceylon (the present day Sri Lanka) during the British colonial era.

    Brief Garden is a delight for those who love nature. When visitors walk into the garden, they will be able to enjoy the jungle feel of the garden and its unique sculptures. The house on the estate is cosy and comfortable. Bevis Bawa built the premise with care and the intention to make it his retirement home.

    Malaysian weddings are diverse, unique and colourful affairs, as is to be expected in a country that is a melting pot of cultures and faiths. Generally speaking, wedding customs in Malaysia are determined based on the couple’s race, religion or both. As a large percentage of Malaysians are Malays, and given that Malaysia’s constitution provides that all Malays are to be Muslims, Malay weddings are typically steeped in Malay traditions and solemnised according to the tenets of Islam.

    How we feel should not be affected by what others say about us. Everyone has a different expectation and perception of things. Their comments on us are purely based on their perception, it may be true and it may not be true.

    Our motivation might be misunderstood, but it should not matter. At the end of the day, we create our own karma. If we react to negative comments with negative emotion and behaviours, we are the one who lose out. We should always remember what the 8 verses of mind transformation say, give the victory to others.

The Unknown

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

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