Jamyang, newest friend to the aviary!

Oct 27, 2012 | Views: 588

I have always loved birds and it breaks my heart to see them mistreated, especially in pet shops. Many of the birds in the Tsem Ladrang aviary are rescued from pet shops that did not take good care of them.

Among the birds we have, there are two very beautiful African Greys – Aki and Jamyang. I brought Aki back from a pet shop two years ago. There were two African Greys at that time, one was Aki and the other was a younger African Grey. Aki was in the pet shop for 4 years when I met him… no one expressed any interest in him as he was already 45 years old. It broke my heart that Aki was left in the pet shop for so long in a small cage, with no hope for a good life. Without much thought, I decided to adopt him. Now he is happily living with the other birds in the aviary.

Jamyang is the other African grey, and he’s estimated to be only one year old. About 2 months ago, I was walking around a shopping mall and decided to walk into a pet shop. Inside, there was an African Grey chained to a perch. You could tell that he was lively, but didn’t have much moving space… Instantly, I knew I had to adopt Jamyang. It broke my heart to see him contained in such a claustrophobic pet shop in the basement of a shopping mall. It was not an appropriate living space… there was no sunlight and proper air ventilation…

African Greys are very loving, playful and intelligent animals. They are known as the “Einstein’s” of the parrot world because of their incredible speaking ability. If well taken care of, they can live for up to 50-60 years, although there are cases where they have lived up to 73… or even 93 years old! Both male and female African Greys are similar in appearance, while the younger ones can be recognized by a dark grey or black eye, grey-tinged undertail-coverts and a darker red tip to the tail.

Jamyang now lives in a separate cage from the others as he is still adapting to the new environment. I had the Ladrang put in toys for him to play and to also feed him fresh fruits daily. The doctor told us that Jamyang is underweight so it is important that we give him fresh vegetables daily besides his regular seeds… his favourites are corn and carrots! Just a few days ago he has been moved to a new and happy large aviary where he is enjoying himself.

I am glad Jamyang, Aki and all the other birds in the aviary have a proper living environment now. It gives me a peace of mind to know that the birds are living happily and healthy.

Tsem Rinpoche

P.S. I got the Ladrang to research on African Greys and below are some of the information they found.

 


 

CHARACTER & BEHAVIOUR

Unlike other parrots, wild African Greys are quite intelligent and have been documented imitating the calls of several other species. Dr. Irene Pepperberg’s research with captive African Greys has scientifically demonstrated that they possess the ability to associate simple human words with meanings, and to intelligently apply the abstract concepts of shape, colour, number, zero-sense, etc.

According to Pepperberg and other ornithologists, they perform many cognitive tasks at the level of dolphins, chimpanzees, and even human toddlers.

Many pet Congo African Greys learn to speak in their second or third year. Timnehs are generally observed to start speaking earlier. Both subspecies seem to have the same ability and tendency to produce human speech, but vocal ability and inclination may range widely among individual birds.

One notable African Grey is N’kisi, who in 2004 was said to have a vocabulary of over 950 words and was noted for creative use of language. For example, when Jane Goodall visited N’kisi in his New York home, he greeted her with “Got a chimp?” because he’d seen pictures of her with chimpanzees in Africa.

A study published in 2011, led by Dr. Dalila Bovet of Paris West University Nanterre La Défense, demonstrated that African Grey parrots were able to coordinate and collaborate with each other to an extent. They were able to solve problems set by scientists—for example, two birds could pull strings at the same time in order to obtain food. In another example, one bird stood on a perch in order to release a food-laden tray, while the other pulled the tray out from the test apparatus. Both would then feed. The birds in question were observed waiting for their partners to perform the necessary actions so that their behaviour could be synchronized. It was also noted that the parrots appeared to express individual preferences as to which of the other birds (partners) they would rather work with.

Their sociability and intelligence make African Grey parrots excellent pets. However, the same qualities mean that African Greys require a special commitment by their owners to provide frequent one-on-one interaction and supervised time out of their cage. They must be kept entertained and busy with people and toys or they may become stressed and develop self-destructive behavior. African Greys require large cages, a varied diet that includes fresh foods, and plenty of safe and destructible toys. If not provided with these items, African Greys quickly develop unpleasant behaviours and may eventually develop health problems such as feather-plucking that are difficult to remedy.

Even the healthiest, happiest pet African Grey will generate a fair amount of mess and noise. Like most parrots, they are non-domesticated, and even a well-socialized, hand-raised, aviary-bred bird is only one or two generations removed from its wild predecessor. Despite this, there is a long recorded history of African Greys being kept by the ancient Greeks, wealthy Roman families, King Henry VIII, Portuguese sailors, and others.

 

FLOCK INSTINCTS

African Greys have strong flock instincts. The significance of the flock to our Greys can be used to ease assimilation of our new African Grey with other birds.

In cases of assimilating an older Grey that had a “difficult” history, there was a case study where a 4-year-old female Grey assimilated successfully into its new surroundings. This female Grey was nervous and fearful, did not much like humans, could not be handled, would not eat anything but seed, and did not know how to play with toys. Since she had not previously developed a real bond of trust with a human, she presented a special challenge. It could have taken months to develop trust from this bird.

However, by using their flock instinct the caretaker allowed the other Greys to develop the bond and trust that will ease and speed up the assimilation process. The result: within a very short time, this grey was eating fresh food and playing with toys. It also became more animated and “outgoing” because of the stimulation of “the flock” she encountered daily.

It is also beneficial for a young grey to be raised among older greys. They learn faster just by watching their seniors.

Although general experiments and practice of flock instinct showed signs of success, we cannot assume that all situations will bear the same results. Sometimes, the sensitivity of the grey towards each other can also cause disharmony.

 

GREYS AND PUPPIES/ DOGS?

A puppy can be trained to live with your grey. However, the Grey, because of his/her age, might not be so tolerant. They are natural enemies. So, it just depends on both the bird and the puppy and how they react to each other and how they are trained. NEVER leave the puppy and bird alone together for any length of time, even if you think at some point they are both compatible.

On the other hand, they might end up being best of buds. Some parrots ride on the backs of dogs and others playing with one another. But it just depends on the individual personalities of both of the animals.

He loves interacting and all the attention!

    The Chair

    I have one chair I usually sit on to do my sadhana, watch a program, read, write, research and so on. But many times I return from my bathroom, Oser girl has taken over my chair. She gives me this look like, it’s her chair! She’s a spunky little schnauzer. The room has so much space, other sofas and places of interest, but my Oser has to hijack my chair always. I have to gently move her over and squeeze in next to her like I did last night into the same chair. We sat together for hours and she fell asleep in my chair huddled against me. Love is sharing a chair even though it’s meant for one occupant at a time. 😊 Tsem Rinpoche

    Hello to every one, it’s truly a good for me to pay a visit this site, it includes important Information.

  10. Jutika Lam on Feb 6, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It breaks my heart as well when i see animals being abused, being killed for their meat or coat. I also hate it when pet shop owners stuff lots of birds in to one small cage just to safe space as well as well as saving time to wash the cages and clean up the poo.

    Getting back to Jamyang he is so cute and adorable especially the way he stand on KB’s shoulder.
    Rinpoche is always so kind and caring towards animals and that Rinpoche is also always on the look out for stray dogs that need food as well as animals that are in a pet shop but are stuffed up in a small cage.
    I love Rinpoche’s kindness and that is why I too am inspired to feed stray dogs when I have the time to feed them, the feeling after one has done a good deed is so heartwarming that it inspires me to have love and care for not just dogs and cats but also other animals.

    It is also nice to know the fact that when I go vegetarian for 2-3 days a week i have done a good deed for animals to be slaughtered slightly later. Though it is quite sad that there are still millions of people in the whole world eating meat i believe that one day the world will be meat free.

    Thank you Rinpoche for spending time to share with us about Jamyang as well as some knowledge on African Gray’s.

    Love
    Jutika

  11. sarahyap on Jan 16, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I like Jamyang very much! He is now living with a lot of other friends in the Ladrang aviary. Among all the birds in the aviary, Jamyang is the cleverest! He can speak very well and clearly… and it’s also not very difficult to teach him to speak. Some people say that this species of bird, which is African grey has the intelligence of a 5 year old, so no wonder he pick up things pretty quickly!

  12. Jessica Yap on Dec 22, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Jamyang is so cute! hehe I’ve never been a big fan of birds.. but Jamyang is too cute!! Just like any other animals, they need proper care and we need to do our homework and research in order for us to understand the nature of our pets. Rinpoche is so kind and loving towards all animals.. =) My idol/hero, Rinpoche! hehe

    Thank you, Rinpoche!

  13. Junior on Dec 6, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Thank you for sharing this article.Welcome Jamyang to the aviary.

  14. Lucas Tan on Nov 7, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Jamyang is such a lively and active bird and can finally be free and fly freely without any restrictions.I wish that Jamyang can have long life and be closer to dharma in his next life!:D

  15. June Tang(KHJB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing this informative article! Rinpoche has great concern for animals, I can see Rinpoche shower to AKI and JAMYANG with lots of love and care . They are very fortunate to meet Rinpoche in this lives.

  16. Davin on Nov 5, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. I had no idea African Greys were so intelligent and so beautiful. Rinpoche’s compassion is not only to human beings but to all beings. I wish that Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest starting from Kechara Forest Retreat.

  17. grace (KHJB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Jamyang and Aki was so fortunate can meet up Rinpoche and adopted by him with full love and care.Hopefully more and more people can really take care and love the animals.

  18. Wah Ying on Nov 4, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    This article reminds me of Rio the movie. I know a little more about birds through this movie – which was a treat by Rinpoche to Kechara staffs.

    Rinpoche always educates us through many ways and skilful ways about compassion, with knowledge and education about other beings.

    Thanks Rinpoche for articles like this and etc, because with these teachings I become less ignorant and practice to be more compassion to others including birds and animals.

  19. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 3, 2012 at 11:51 am

    When Rinpoche adopt animal, he would not just adopt and put at Ladrang to keep, he will always go to the internet and search for more info re the animal so that we can understand the animal better and take care of them in the right way.

    Rinpoche’s compassion to human or animal are the same, he always make sure he will give the best to everyone, because for him, all lives are equal.

  20. tenzin llhamo on Nov 2, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Hehe… Jamyang looks so adorable. I have not heard a parrot having a conversation in real live before. Always see them on tv though. Maybe 1 day I will get to see Jamyang and see how smart he is… And thank you for the information about African Greys…

  21. Sean Wang on Nov 2, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Jamyang baby is so cute 🙂 I love intelligent animals like parrots. The sad thing is that when animals are shown to be intelligent, it reminds me that all animals are intelligent enough to feel pain and suffering as humans do. So, it increases my sorrow upon seeing animals getting abused or killed.

  22. wei theng on Nov 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Jamyang is so cute. I remembered Rinpoche told that we put Buddha images near the feeding bowl for the birds, it will create good imprints for the birds and animals. We can also pray that they will reborn as Dharma teachers in their next lives.

  23. Pastor Chia on Nov 1, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Thank you for sharing this article,Jamyang is adorable and beautiful. Ladrang team is taking good care of the aviary. Jamyang is one lucky bird save to join our big dharma family.

    At the future, Rinpoche also creating aviary at KFR and cabin for 5 mumus to stay, they are able close to the nature environment. KFR is created for all the sentient being will be bless by this holy place at the future.

  24. Tom Mellors on Nov 1, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Fascinating, I had no idea African Greys were so intelligent. It certainly is awful to imagine these wonderful birds living out their days in cramped cages. Interesting too that parrots and dogs can get along. I would love to see a parrot riding on a dog’s back!

  25. Han on Nov 1, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    I love this article, very informative and beneficial, especially to people with pets at home. Furthermore, Beng Kooi gave very good in depth informations on “Rinpoche gives all the animals in Ladrang Tibetan names to bless them.”
    Having pets with us can be our past life inclination with the animals ? We should well treat our pets and give equal love and care to all animals, they do not say thank you but they can be as loyal as man.

    Welcome Jamyang to the aviary, how fortunate of Jamyang !

  26. Louise Lee on Oct 31, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Jamyang baby is very clever! I meet Jamyang yesterday ! Joy non stop chanting Om Ah Ra Pa Tsa Na Dhi . Jamyang baby stay there and listen !

    So cute.

    Human and animals also need love.

  27. Uncle Eddie on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    I fully agree to what BK said and claimed that, “whatever animals Rinpoche rescued, are believed to have a closed connection to Rinpoche from a previous life.” And, as through BK’s past observations, it seems like every single one of these animals, Rinpoche takes extracare to ensure they are fine! True to what Dharma indicated and according to BK, when you take refuge, the Guru makes a commitment to guide you through till enlightenment. Even though you come back as an animal, wouldn’t the Guru out of true compassion not bless you with dharma seeds till you ready to return again in a more suitable form for more Dharma practices! Congrats and thank you for a well-researched explanation, BK! Om mani padme Hum.

  28. Li Kheng @ KFR on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:11 am

    Jamyang is super cute and friendly. As he spends more time in Rinpoche’s care, Jamyang is opening up more and more. We can hear Jamyang say “hello” to people who passes by.

    I was also told that our Kakak in the Ladrang really likes Jamyang and spends a lot of time talking to him. She taught him to call her “kakak” and this has become Jamyang’s second word 🙂

    Besides Jamyang, Rinpoche has a few other pets like the infamous Mumu and gang. All these animals are very special: they display a high level of EQ and IQ. As BK mentioned, I believe this stems from the love and care from Rinpoche.

    We should learn from Rinpoche to display care and love that is vital for the positive growth of all beings.

    • DR on Nov 5, 2012 at 1:14 pm

      Yes Jamyang is friendly. Even Gizmo likes him alot and always sits by Jamyang’s cage and just stares at him. Perhaps they were friends in their previous life. So cute. Such good karma Jamyang has, to be saved by Rinpoche. Hope he takes on a higher rebirth after this.

  29. Karen Chong on Oct 31, 2012 at 12:57 am

    I love Jamyang! He’s too cute. Everytime I walk pass the cage, Jamyang sure will greet me with hello! After reading the article above, now i know why my cockatoo at home keep plucking feather, I should give more attention and buy more toys to keep it entertained.

  30. Milly on Oct 31, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Jamyang and all the animals, birds, fishes, etc under Rinpoche’s care are so very blessed. They will be blessed by Rinpoche’s daily prayers and eventually have a good rebirth. I have seen birds settling down after Rinpoche blew mantras over them. So imagine how those pets in Rinpoche’s ladrang are benefiting daily.

    • Girlie Ooi on Nov 14, 2012 at 5:51 pm

      Yes, Milly not only are the birds, fishes, animals, etc are blessed. Everyone under Rinpoche’s care are blessed. Rinpoche’s love is for all beings. No discrimination. Period.

  31. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 30, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    I had the good honour to clean the aviary in Ladrang. During the course of cleaning the aviary I got to know a lovely African Grey Aki, he is so gentle and nice. I have fond memories of handling Aki :).

  32. AdelineTan on Oct 30, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Jamyang is so cute and lovable,i can see he is very friendly too with KB. Hope to meet Jamyang one day and hear him talk or say hello to me.I am very happy he has a good home now and well taken care of by Rinpoche.

  33. Cynthia Lee on Oct 29, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    If it’s true that the animals Rinpoche has saved has past lives connections, those who has taken refuge with Rinpoche is truly fortunate. I remember I was told the the reason why Rinpoche is so passionate about an animal sanctuary is because many of us will return as an animal in our next life. That knowledge is scary but nevertheless there are more opportunities for us naughty ones to have dharma seeds planted in us continuously.

    Rinpoche thinks way ahead and foresee what is required to help us in many ways. Let’s pray for the Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest starting from Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). Martin was sharing with us that the immediate plans for an aviary in the KFR will be nestled amongst the greens with one side of the aviary walled off by trees so that the birds are in their most natural habitat as possible. This will be completed very soon. 🙂

  34. Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 5:19 am

    I forgot to add that I have always felt that rinpoche doesn’t just rescue all the Ladrang animals on just a whim. I actually believe that every one of the permanent Ladrang animals (excluding those that are rescued and rehomed elsewhere) are actually those with connections to Rinpoche from a previous life.

    I have been with rinpoche during those times when rinpoche suddenly decides to bring a certain animal home. For instance, Dorje was chosen out of over a hundred koi in an aquarium/koi store. Yogi/Mumu was the “runt” of his litter, and was chosen after months of research about schnauzer. Drolkar was one of several cockatoos on the sidewalk of a bird store. And with every single one of these animals, rinpoche takes extra care to ensure they are fine.

    Proof of my theory? I know that Mumu was a monk in his previous life. Perhaps a naughty monk to come back in animal form but a monk nonetheless. If you spent time with him, Mumu is almost human. Dorje, the koi, is more like a dog than a koi. Drolkar is a traumatized cockatoo yet exceedingly gentle. Kadro and menlha are possibly the only tortoises that can climb fences that are 4ft high.

    Every one of Rinpoche’s animals is particularly different in temperament and character from their fellows. I see this as yet more proof that reincarnation is real. I mean, when you take refuge, the guru makes a commitment to guide you till enlightenment. So, if you come back as an animal, wouldn’t the guru keep you close and bless you I your current form with dharma seeds until you are ready to come back in another form more suited to dharma practice? Makes sense to me.

    • patsy on Nov 1, 2012 at 6:13 pm

      Yes BK it makes sense and reincarnation is real.

      Once we take refuge, our Guru will guide us till Enlightenment. In this life time, we are so fortunate to be born a human and to meet our Guru again. We may not be so fortunate in our next rebirth and may end up like all the animals that Rinpoche saved. Rinpoche did mention before that many of us will take rebirth as animals and if we do, I hope that we will be saved by Rinpoche and be taken care of in Kechara Animal Sanctuary. So it is important that in our present form, we support Rinpoche’s vision of Kechara Forest Retreat so that in the event we come back as animals we will have a more conducive environment to live in

    • wei theng on Nov 2, 2012 at 1:01 pm

      Very true BK & Patsy. We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche as our Guru. He takes care of us not just for this life but for our future lives too. Even if we will be born as animal, Rinpoche also has prepared a way for us to be closed to Dhama and him.

  35. Lucas Roth on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:37 am

    i hope jamyang has a great time in the avery and that he will always be happy no matter what. i hope jamyang has a very long and happy life

  36. Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:17 am

    Jamyang is short for Jampelyang, which is the Tibetan name for Manjushri. And Jamyang sure is one clever bird. He even says hello when he sees you across the room, so that you’ll go give him some attention.

    Rinpoche gives all the animals in Ladrang Tibetan names to bless them. For example, we have:
    – Oser (schnauzer) which means Clear Light. Short for the buddha Oserchenma or Marici
    – Dharma (schnauzer)
    – Yogi (schnauzer)
    – Kadro (tortoise) which means Dakini
    – Menlha (tortoise) which means Medicine Buddha
    – Drolkar (cockatoo) which means White Tara
    – Dechog (cockatoo) which means Heruka
    – Dorje (koi) which means vajra

    More recently, I was fortunate enough that Rinpoche named my adopted toy poodle “Norbu”, which means precious jewel. Well, she is a precious jewel alright (think Chenrezig) and ever since she came, we have secured many more jobs in the Captiv8 office (think Dzambala).

    In all seriousness, all these animals are very fortunate to have Rinpoche’s blessings. I sure hope that we can have an animal sanctuary soon, so that many more animals can benefit!

  37. Helena Chin on Oct 28, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    I’m glad Jamyang has well taken care of and he is very fortunate to meet Rinpoche, we all knows Rinpoche always rescue animals from pet shop. Thank you Rinpoche for the information about African Greys. They are very intelligent hehe.. For me I always encourage my friends to adopt animals instead of buying them from pet shop. There are so many animals out there whom need us to care and love them. So I hope all of us can encourage our friends to adopt instead of buying them.

  38. Julien Roth on Oct 28, 2012 at 4:40 am

    I love it that Jamyang has a new and better home. I hope he is having a god time withe the other birds inside the aviary. And i love te he picture when he is eating the carrot, i find it so cute. Rinpoche is very nice to adopt Jamyang from the pet store. I am glad the Rinpoche has done so.

  39. Sheryl KH (JB) on Oct 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    All kinds of animals who can get Rinpoche’s attention are the lucky ones. They are certain of abundant foods, toys and attentive cares from Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post on Jamyang. Jamyang is yet another lucky guy!

  40. choisheem on Oct 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    This is a very informative article. Jamyang is certainly very intelligent. It is so sad to read about all the animals in the pet shops being kept in such a poor condition. In general, I found out birds are not a popular choice of pets for most people here. After asking around a few people around me, most of them preferred to have puppies or even rabbits as their pets. Rinpoche is so compassionate to rescue these birds from the pet shops. I can’t imagine the fate of these animals that are not ‘sale able’. From this article, I have learnt so many interesting facts on this species of bird. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these facts with us.

  41. edward ooi on Oct 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Jamyang baby is so cute. He is so beautiful and smart. I remembered i was at Hevan, he said hello to me when I was going to KFR. So cute hehe.

    Dear Rinpoche
    This post reminded me of a documentary I saw not to long ago about how intelligent animals are. I was really surprised to see just how clever they are. There are some clips here of animals being really smart!

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

    Gangwon is a very nice place blessed with natural and beautiful scenery.The beaches are popular spots for watching sunrise on morning as well.
    It will be a good place to plan for holiday with family and friends.The best time to visit is autumn; as Korea’s coldest province, the cool autumn breeze is a pleasant prelude to the chilly winter and creates exquisite vistas of multi-coloured changing foliage.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the personal year number, 2, which means balance. Based on the career, they may feel influenced to set up collaborative work relationships as Number 2 is the energy of sharing.

    Based on the health, they become more aware of their diet, body type and level of exercise. They may also apply more care to their own health. At the same time, they will find them in a better position to express their feelings and this outlet will enable them to keep calm.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the personal year number,1, which means new direction. Based on the career, there will be unavoidable changes at work, whether subtle or overt.

    Based on the health, they will signifies a new beginning and they are likely to be inspired to get a head start on their health goals and targets. At the same time, If they are not in a romantic relationship, they are likely to encounter new opportunities. If they are already in a romantic relationship, they may find them exploring new developments which are likely to turn things around for the better.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about teh achievement number which is related to the prime challenges of our life on both material and spiritual fronts where it tells of our negative behavioral tendencies and provides solutions to those negative traits.

    Whoever having the achievement number, 1, their biggest challenge is to overcome their low self-esteem, which can manifest as either arrogance or timidity. Letting go of their ego, which causes them to be over-controlling of situations and people will help them tremendously.

    Commentary on the Fascinating Concept of Emanation

    A Buddhist emanation is an animate or inanimate form manifested by Buddhas or high Bodhisattvas to benefit others. The exact manner or criteria have never been explained and it may be safe to conclude that such an explanation would be beyond the mental faculties of ordinary beings.

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is considered by some Buddhists to be an emanation (in human form) of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. The Dalai Lama has even said publicly that his successor, the 15th Dalai Lama might appear as an emanation even when he, the current Dalai Lama is still alive.

    உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா (ULLAMBANA)

    உள்ளம்பனா என்பது சமஸ்கிருத சொல். இதன் பொருள் “வேதனையிலிருந்து விடுவித்தல்”

    நம் முன்னேற்றத்திற்கு உதவியவர்கள், நம்மால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டு வேதனையுற்றவர்கள் ஆகியோருக்கு இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொள்வதன் மூலம் அவர்களின் ஆத்மா சாந்தியடைய வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். இது புத்த மதத்தின் சிறப்புகளில் ஒன்று.

    நமது மூதாதையர்களையும், நம்மை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த நமது அன்புக்குறியவர்களையும், பாதுகாக்கவும், தகுதிகளை உயர்த்தவும், கர்ம வினைகளால் துன்பத்தை அனுபவிப்பவர்களுக்கு இரக்கம் காட்டவும் இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா சிறந்த ஒன்றாக அமையும்.

    புத்த மதத்தில் எழுதப்பட்ட உள்ளம்பனா சூத்திரத்தில் புத்தர் ஷக்யமுனியின் சீடரான மௌட்கல்யாயனா தனது ஞான திருஷ்டியால் தனது அம்மாவின் ஆத்மா பேயாக உலாவுவதைக் கண்டார். அவள் மெல்லிய நீண்ட கழுத்தும், பானை போன்ற வயிறும், எப்பொழுதும் பசியுடனும் இருப்பதைக் கண்டார். அவளுக்கு உணவு கொடுத்தால் அது அவள் உதட்டைத் தொட்டவுடன் கரியாக மாறுவதைக் கண்டு கவலைப் பட்டார்.

    மௌட்கல்யாயனா தன் தாயை இந்த வேதனையான சூழலிலிருந்து விடுவிப்பதற்காக புத்தரின் ஆலோசனையைக் கேட்டார்.

    புத்தர் மௌட்கல்யாயனாவிடம், 7 வது மாதம் 15 ஆம் திகதி புத்தப் பிக்குகளுக்குப் பெரிய அளவில் பிரசாதம் படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார். பிரசாதத்தைப் படைக்கும் போது மந்திரத்தைச் சொல்லிக்கொண்டே படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார்.

    “உனது அம்மவின்பாவங்கள் ஆழமாக வேறூன்றி இருப்பதால் உன்னிடம் இருக்கும் ஆற்றல் மட்டும் போதாது. நீ பத்து பக்கங்களிலிருந்தும் புத்த பிக்குகளை வரவழைத்து அவர்களின் ஆன்மீக பலத்தை ஒன்று திரட்டி உன் அம்மாவின் பாவங்களைப் போக்கி விடுவிக்கவேண்டும்.” என்றார் புத்தார்.

    இதுதான் உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா ஆரம்பமானது பற்றிய விளக்கம்.

    எதிர்வரும் 10/082019 அன்று ‘Kechara Forest Retreat’ -ல் இந்த திருவிழா நடைபெற இருக்கிறது. நீங்களும் இந்த திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொண்டு உங்கள் மூதாதையர்கள், உங்களை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த உங்களின் அன்புக்குறியவர்கள் ஆகியோரின் ஆத்ம சாந்திக்காக வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். உங்களுக்காகவும் உங்களின் முன்னேற்றத்திற்காகவும் நடைபெறும் பூஜையிலும் கலந்துகொள்ளலாம்.

    தொடர்புக்கு: For more information on the Ullambana Festival and Ullambana offerings, please get in touch with us at +609 221 5600, +603 7803 3908, +6012 987 3908 (WhatsApp only), care@kechara.com or visit our online partner at VajraSecrets.com.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful video sharing your thoughts with us . I have watch and listened over a few times to understand the deeper meaning behind it. In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
    Along our path from childhood to adult , each our us have a story , but what ever we went through is a experience of a life time and is the past. What matter now we learn, make a determined effort to learn dharma , use it, practice it and move on with it. What we learn is a matter of gathering knowledge, wisdom is applying that knowledge and that is our choice. Choice is the greatest gift we get from life. The choices we make every minute of every day can contribute to making someone’s life better and happier. Be kind , caring, compassion, loving ,generous and to benefits others to those around us is my choice. And the choices we make are ultimately our own and the process never ends until we die. Start now and it never too late to learn.
    Thank again Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Buddhists believe death is a natural part of the life cycle. They believe that death simply leads to rebirth. For Buddhists death is not the end of life, so it is not something to be feared. Where and how a person is reborn depends on their good and bad actions in past lives. I do believe in the existence of reincarnation yet in this modern society still many do not believe . Reincarnation is a universal phenomenon and everyone of us live their lives on reincarnation. That’s very true. What ever things we do before and after will becomes karma , eventually will come back to us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Powerful video questions and answers tell us all we have to know. Rinpoche explains well enough for us to understand.
    The benefits of social media are obvious yet social media has a greater impact on our spiritual health and wellbeing. We can stay updated with our friends and reconnect with old ones. In long term it do more harm than benefit us. As a whole learning and practicing dharma transforming our mind is the correct choice. Social media will leads us to no where , where else dharma will. Instead of respecting nature, they destroyed and exploit nature . Very clear explanation by Rinpoche using rain, milk as an example for us all to understand the elementals factors of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Bigfoot is such a mystical creature. So far, only one very clear image of bigfoot was captured in a video. The interesting thing is, a creature similar to Bigfoot is also reported in the Himalayan region and China apart from those reported in North America.

    Bigfoot is also said to be a messenger of the high lamas in Tibet. They help to deliver messages from one lama to another. Bigfoots do not want to show up in front of human beings maybe it is because they know human beings always have a bad intention. If they are captured by human beings, they will most likely be kept in a laboratory for scientists to do research on them.

    Rinpoche’s sadhanas take a long time each day because he is responsible for several important lineages. He has to be able to uphold the sadhana commitments of all these practices so he is qualified to confer the initiation of that practice when the need arises. Rinpoche has explained that this is part and parcel of what a lama has to do in order to benefit others and proliferate the teachings and practices.

    That particular night, Rinpoche decided he was going to explain the short sadhana of Dorje Shugden and felt this student would benefit from the knowledge. Not only would it help her to write, but it would also add to the richness of her spiritual learning. Rinpoche also wanted to show his appreciation to her for delaying her trip back to the USA, in order to contribute to the blog. And so Rinpoche invited her to join the session, and to see for herself other behind-the-scenes aspects of the work we do. This photograph captures that joyous meeting between student and teacher.

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
