Sometimes there are news you must read. The news may not be pleasant but necessary to know and understand. Perhaps even to do something about. Reading about the sufferings of animals may not directly affect you but, it can stir empathy and compassion. A compassion that eventually inspires you to do something……

13 Pygmy Elephants Found Dead in Malaysia

Malaysian authorities have a possible elephant murder mystery on their hands after three more pygmy elephants reportedly were found dead on the island of Borneo Wednesday (Jan. 30).

The grim discovery brings the death toll to 13 this month, and according to the AP, authorities are investigating suspicions that the diminutive elephants were poisoned.

Also called Bornean elephants, these creatures are the most endangered subspecies of Asian elephant. While other male Asian elephants can grow up to 9.8 feet (3 meters), male Bornean elephants grow to less than 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) and they have bigger ears and rounder bellies, according to the conservation organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Researchers initially believed the babyish-looking mammals were the descendents of captive elephants brought to the island a few centuries ago. Other evidence, however, suggests that the pygmy elephants are a genetically distinct subspecies that arrived thousands of years ago during the Pleistocene Epoch by way of a land bridge. There are thought to be just 1,200 of them in Borneo today, mostly concentrated in Sabah, the Malaysian state at the northeastern corner of the island. [Gallery: The Pygmy Elephants of Borneo]

Though it’s still unclear who or what might be responsible for the recent spate of elephant deaths, WWF officials noted that the population has been increasingly threatened by habitat fragmentation, and all the corpses reportedly have been found in areas where forests are being transformed into plantations within the Gunung Rara reserve in Sabah.

“Conversions result in fragmentation of the forests, which in turn results in loss of natural habitat for elephant herds, thus forcing them to find alternative food and space, putting humans and wildlife in direct conflict,” environmentalist Dato’ Dr Dionysius S K Sharma, executive director of the WWF’s Malaysia division, said in a statement. “All conversion approvals need to be reviewed by the Sabah Forestry Department and assessed not purely from commercial, but the endangered species and landscape ecology perspectives.”

Malaysia considers reward in dead Borneo elephant case

MALAYSIAN authorities will offer a RM50,000 reward for information on 14 rare Borneo pygmy elephants found dead last month if it is confirmed they were poisoned, officials said Wednesday.

Sabah tourism, culture and environment minister Datuk Masidi Manjun told AFP that authorities hoped the reward would help them get new leads.

“There is a reward of 50,000 ringgit for information leading to the arrest, prosecution and conviction of the alleged culprits if the chemist report confirms that death was due to intentional poisoning,” he said.

He added in a text message that the report is due to be completed on Friday, about a fortnight after a group of eight elephants were found dead near an oil palm plantation.

Further bodies were later found decomposing in the Gunung Rara forest reserve, and officials are trying to save a three-month-old calf, poignantly photographed nuzzling its dead mother and now staying in a wildlife park.

Officials believe the pachyderms — an endangered species — may have been poisoned, possibly by substances left out by workers at nearby plantations to deter them from eating the palm fruit.

Poisoning is suspected due to severe ulceration and bleeding in the animals’ digestive tracts.

Masidi has vowed to push for severe punishment including a stiff jail sentence for anyone found to have maliciously poisoned the animals.

WWF-Malaysia in a statement blamed the deaths on rampant felling of forests by planters, which had forced elephants to find alternative food and space and put them in conflict with humans.

The group says only about 1,200 Borneo pygmy elephants, which are smaller and have more rounded features than full-sized Asian elephants, are estimated to be left in the wild.

The state of Sabah once teemed with wildlife including elephants, orangutan, clouded leopards and a vast array of monkeys and birds.

Pockets of thriving wildlife populations still survive but have been squeezed into ever smaller areas by the expansion of logging and agriculture, particularly the cultivation of oil palms, which produce a profitable edible oil. — AFP

  

 


 

Investigation on elephant deaths to complete soon – police

KOTA KINABALU: No stones are left unturned in investigating the death of 14  Borneo pygmy elephants at Gunung Rara Forest Reserve in Tawau, last month.

State Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib in giving the assurance to the  people yesterday, also said they hoped to wrap up the investigation soon.

“I am still waiting for the full report from our office in Kinabatangan,  which among others include results from the samples of soil and other items from  the location, the type of poison and also the statements taken from villagers  and planters in the area,” he said.

According to him, their investigation is framed under Section 429 of the  Penal Code, for committing mischief by killing animals. The culprit faces a  maximum jail sentence of five years.

“I have directed everyone to give this case a priority … we want to get to  the bottom of the issue and hope investigation will be completed soon,” he said  when asked on the progress of the investigation after launching Ops Selamat II  at Suria Sabah here yesterday.

Meanwhile, Hamza explained that they are still waiting for the chemist  report, which is expected to be completed soon.

“If there is any sign of criminal intent, we will not hesitate to take action  against those involved and charge them in court.

“For now, we are giving our full focus on the investigation of the case,” he  said.

Fourteen carcasses of Pygmy elephants were found middle of last month. The  cause of their death is believed due to poisoning.

The WWF wildlife group estimates that fewer than 1,500 Borneo pygmy elephants  exist, and they live mainly in Sabah and grow to about eight feet (245  centimeters) tall, a foot or two shorter than mainland Asian elephants.

Known for their babyish faces, large ears and long tails, pygmy elephants  were found to be a distinct subspecies only in 2003, after DNA testing.

Their numbers have stabilised in recent years amid conservation efforts to  protect their jungle habitats from being torn down for plantations and  development projects.

Malaysia seeks help abroad over dead Borneo elephants

Updated: Fri, 08 Feb 2013 12:21:40 GMT | By Agence France-Presse

Malaysian authorities said Friday they are seeking help from forensic experts in Thailand and Australia after their own tests failed to establish if 14 rare Borneo pygmy elephants were killed by poison. 

The deaths of the endangered animals, found last month in a forest reserve in Sabah state on Borneo island, shocked conservationists and officials, who released a poignant picture of a three-month-old calf nuzzling its dead mother.

Masidi Manjun, state tourism, culture and environment minister, said preliminary results of chemical analysis by government scientists had not provided conclusive evidence on the cause of death.

Wildlife officials would send samples to two forensic testing facilities in Thailand and Australia in an effort to “find any chemical compounds that may have been the cause of the elephants’ death”, he said in a statement.

Officials suspect the elephants may have been poisoned due to severe ulceration and bleeding in their digestive tracts.

Substances left out by workers at nearby plantations to deter them from eating the palm fruit may have been to blame, they believe.

Masidi said that police were conducting “a very thorough investigation involving all possible parties, including plantations and logging companies within the vicinity where the dead elephants were found”.

Malaysian authorities have said they will offer a $16,000 reward for information on the case if it is confirmed the elephants were poisoned, and that the culprits would face stiff penalties.

Officials are still trying to save the calf found with the dead animals, now staying in a wildlife park in Sabah.

WWF-Malaysia says only about 1,200 Borneo pygmy elephants, which are smaller and have more rounded features than full-sized Asian elephants, are estimated to be left in the wild.

Their habitat is shrinking due to logging for timber, oil palm plantations and other development, forcing them to find alternative food and space and putting them in conflict with humans.

Malaysian jailed over major seizure of tiger parts

Updated: Fri, 08 Feb 2013 08:05:48 GMT | By Agence France-Presse 

Activists Friday slammed a two-year jail term handed to a Malaysian man over the country’s biggest seizure of illegally trafficked tiger parts as too short and a “demoralising finale” to the case. 

Eight tiger skins, and 22 tiger skulls and bones were discovered at the home of Nor Shahrizam Nasir in northern Malaysia in February last year, as well as nine pieces of African elephant ivory.

A district court in northern Kedah state found Nor Shahrizam guilty Thursday of illegal possession of tiger parts and ivory and he was ordered to serve 24 months in jail, said TRAFFIC, a group that monitors wildlife smuggling.

Malaysian court or wildlife officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

TRAFFIC said it was “shocking” that no fine was imposed even though the law stipulates a mandatory fine of not less than 100,000 ringgit ($32,000).

“The short jail term and the lack of a fine are a demoralising finale to what should have been a victory against wildlife crime,” said TRAFFIC Southeast Asia regional director William Schaedla.

“We hope the lapse does not crush the spirit of those authorities who are still working hard to protect Malaysia’s 500 remaining tigers,” he added.

At the time of the smuggler’s arrest, wildlife officials said the parts were likely destined for Malaysia and neighbouring countries, adding the ivory had been made into key chains.

Activists say the smuggling of endangered wildlife throughout Southeast Asia is extensive, with some animal parts still used in traditional medicines.

They say Malaysia has become a key trans-shipment point for smuggled animal goods, such as ivory.

In December, Malaysian customs officials seized 1,500 elephant tusks hidden in a timber shipment from the west African nation of Togo, the largest haul in the country to date.

    Looking at those pictures of elephants paints a thousands words. Sad news……ten endangered pygmy elephants have been found dead in a reserve in Malaysia. Recording to those forest reserve officials, they might have been poisoned . The animals, had all suffered internal bleeding, were found near each other over several weeks at the Forest Reserve. This is indeed sad the death of these severely endangered Bornean elephants is a great loss. Hopefully , the authorities will take more action to stop this happenings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    I came across this news few years back.So sad…..The death of 14 Borneo pygmy elephants at Gunung Rara Forest Reserve in Tawau, 2013 was really sad.Officials suspect the elephants may have been poisoned.The animals was killed due to some irresponsible,greed and selfish human beings.By now i hope the authorities have done more to prevent any further malicious acts and to protect more animals in the jungle. Animals have their Right to live too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing….

  3. Cliff on Mar 18, 2013 at 12:10 am

    Human existence is a constant threat to nature, with civilization ever so developing at such a rapid rate it would only cause more animals to lose their homes and most even their lives. I reall ydo hope the authorities get down to the bottom of this as soon as possible preventing any further malicious acts of such cowards. Im suspecting the plantation owners are involved in this some how. Its just such a sad story to hear that the three months old pygmy elephant’s mother is dead and all it could do was mourn over its mother’s body. May the baby pygmy elephant live and grow strong and my the culprits be brought to justice.

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche, I pray for your good health.

  4. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 6, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    This picture of the little calf nuzzling presumbly his/her mummy is really saddening.

    I feel that in everything there are always good and bad forces at work. For examples, we have evils v.s. the good. In this case, we have environmentalists and those who want to get rid of these endangered elephants at all costs. There have been much talked about palm tree plantations. Because of the profits, many natural forests are gotten rid of in order to grow more palm trees. And commercial waits for no one, so when forests are cleared, they are usually cleared at the expense of the precious lives of special animals who have long occupied the area, such as Orange Utans.

    So humans keep clearing the lands, and at the same time, we continue to lose special animal species. And things go around, we face global warming and a whole of natural disasters which are the results of our human greed.

    Very sad. And I feel sorry for those animals who are killed by humans not knowing why even at their last breath.

    It’s so sad to read the news, 14 Borneo pygmy elephants just dropped dead like that due to poisoning because the plantation owners wanted to deter them from eating their palm fruits.I heard from TV news the authorities are giving rewards to find the culprits, and hopefully can put them to jail.

  7. Low ksjb on Feb 16, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.I have read this article earlier and found those who had poisoned those poor Pygmy Elephant are very cruel and irresponsible. They took the easy way out ,without thinking about the harm they would cause to the animals that habitats in those area which is actually their home.There are alternative methods they could have introduce to prevent those elephants from damaging their crops .But due to cost and reduce of profits ,they chose annihilation over conscience.I do hope they could sleep better now as their problem had been solved!!!
    The Pygmy Elephants might be small but the negative karma they created is HUGE.

  8. Felix Kong on Feb 16, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Oh no,very sad when knew this elephants died of poisoned by someone. That is very suffer when poisoning, may this elephants can take rebirth .

    Please save life of animals , they will be end in one day if we continuous hurt them ,eat them and kill them.

  9. Darren Kechara Paradise on Feb 16, 2013 at 12:19 am

    Oh my.. those pygmy elephants are so cute… Again humans negligence causing natural habitats suffers…

  10. uncle eddie on Feb 15, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Joe, a three-month-old Borneo pygmy elephant calf that managed to survive a poisoning that killed 14 members of its herd including its mother and 13 other elephants. Joe was found nudging his dead mother on a path close to a logging operation at Sabah’s forest managment unit in the Gunung Rara forest reserve on Jan. 25, 2013. Wildlife Rangers are reportedly continuing to be checking the forest reserve for more possible dead elephants, while also checking for source of the poisoning, which could possibly be some form of form of suspected chemical pesticides. Yayasan Sabah, Sabah’s largest concession holder, is working closely with International Bodies such bodies such as The Royal Society of United Kingdom, WWF Malaysia, Ikea, Wetlands International and Kyoto University on forest management, environment and Rehabilitation, to look for the source!The elephants deaths have sent shockingwaves across the Globe and must be investigated thoroughly, with the findings be made public!!!

  11. Pastor Chia on Feb 14, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    What the sad news to read about. Human being never stop killing animal who are stay together at this planet.14 rare Borneo pygmy elephants were killed by poison. Who will be charge to this criminal?

    I ready wish no more killing and any kind of abuse toward the animal. one day we might end up becoming one of them get kill.Negative karma has been planted and will be return back at the future life.

  12. Daisy Sun on Feb 14, 2013 at 9:42 am

    When I came across this news, I feel very sad. I love elephant, seeing they are dying from far away with no connection with me, I feel helpless. Perhaps awaiting the online petition ‘Save the Elephant’ to sign up? Is it enough? Short after the news, I received 2 shocked news on sudden death of my relatives. We have the family connection, but we hardly see each others. I didn’t attend the funeral, but praying/ donation on behalf the deceased, is it enough? I’m not sure, is all come from my pure wishes and hoping they have a good rebirth and near to Dharma in the future. For the people that I care, who are still alive/ family members/ friends…all sentient being, I’m still doing a very preminary practices…and still am slow, not enough still…so I sing “I won’t give up” – Jason Mraz
    Gosh, the ‘gotcha’ (Captcha) tooks me >7 times to pump in the comment. 😉

  13. sweekeong on Feb 13, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    It is such a pity that so many elephants have died together in a short span of time. Conservation of animal and environment is a continuous and collective effort. It is not just one group’s effort nor government’s effort alone. Each one of us, the man on the street can do something about no matter how small it seems. News report of such unfortunate incidents bring to the attention of the masses of what is happening around the country and some of the efforts that have been made to protect the animals and the environments, and what is more to be done. Two things which we can improve on: i) Increase publicity of conservation effort and periodic updates on websites and social media. ii) Increase monitoring to have the information to respond to emergency incidents.

  14. Erickksiow on Feb 13, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Sad to read the news.. Animals have their Right to live. Why people want to kill?

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow 🙁

  15. Jutika Lam on Feb 13, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    OH MY BUDDHA!!! I just can’t believe that 13 Pygmy Elephants have died in just such a short span of time.

    It is really sad news to me and a lot of other people to know of this heartbreaking news, saddest thing is that the baby elephants would be orphans and most of them would also probably suffer a lot because of the lose of a parent/parents and also other sufferings in a orphanage like no freedom etc.

    Just heard today that WWF is pointing fingers at palm oil plantations for causing the death because with the lack of good food and forests as well as the huge demand of palm oil more and more elephant habitats are being cut down so that there would be more space to plant Palm Oil Trees and when you have a plantation you have to spray all kinds of chemicals to chase harmful insects away from the plantation and some of the chemicals would land everywhere and they guess the elephants ate poisonous food thus causing them to die.

    It is true what Rinpoche said: “Sometimes there are news you must read. The news may not be pleasant but necessary to know and understand. Perhaps even to do something about. Reading about the sufferings of animals may not directly affect you but, it can stir empathy and compassion. A compassion that eventually inspires you to do something……” I totally agree with this.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this sad news.

    Love
    Jutika

    • David Lai on Mar 16, 2013 at 10:24 pm

      Very thoughtful of you Jutika. I like to read your post because you write like an adult and its mostly quite hard to determine your age through your comment. Perhaps, you would make a very good writer when you grow up. Anyway, I like what you wrote and I think you are pretty sensitive kid and you thought of how the little pygmy elephants would feel when most adult answer here hardly mentioned about how the little elephants would have felt. Its nice and refreshing perspective from you. I always look out for your little comments because you bring out a new and refreshing answer when compared to the others who comment at Rinpoche’s blog posts. Thanks.

  16. wei theng on Feb 13, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    It is really shocking and sad to know about the news. How on earth anyone could do such things to poison so many elephants and killing the tigers for their personal gain or maybe ‘pleasure’???!!! It is so cruel!
    We have already been taking away their habitual for our “development” so to say. How could we have the heart to kill them some more?? They are also living beings like us! (For info of Pygmy Elephants by WWF: http://worldwildlife.org/species/borneo-pygmy-elephant)

    It is indeed sad to know but it is also a calling for us to do more to create the awareness and support to the animals!

  17. Milly on Feb 12, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Innocent animals are being killed everyday by greedy and inhuman beings. The reward offered to arrest the culprits is good but this does not solve the root problem. When will all these merciless killings end? All for the greed of money, man do not hesitate to kill all kinds of animals. News of such killings needs to be disseminated to the public more aggressively to garner public awareness. Our children needs to be educated from young to develop compassion and ethics so that they do not grow up into unscrupulous adults where the cycle of merciless killings for profits continue to turn.

  18. patsy on Feb 12, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    It is so sad and devastating to read such news. It is so shocking that humans can be so inhumane as to poison the animals for the greed of money. These elephants are an endangered species and we should protect them.

    I hope the authorities will find the culprits soon and I feel that stricter penalties must be imposed on this inhumane act.

  19. jennifer on Feb 12, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    This is so devastating and shocking.

    I’ve read in the newspaper about the death of the 14 pygmy elephants and the arrest of the man in possession of tiger parts and tusks. It truly sickens me to the core that all these are ,once again, caused by man.

    I really hope the authorities will arrest the person/persons responsible for the poisoning of the elephants AND impose much much stricter fines and longer prison terms on these murderers. The law is not stringent enough to deter these heinous crimes and man , out of sheer greed and profit will continue committing these crimes . The sentences , if found guilty, should be served consecutively for each animal killed , rather than concurrently.

    The man arrested with the 22 tiger parts is only serving 24 months – which works out to be just slightly over a month for each tiger killed, and what about the 9 tusks .

    In cases like these , i can say that i am ashamed to be a human being.

  20. Lim Han Nee on Feb 12, 2013 at 8:45 am

    It is sad when we humans degenerate to the level of not being able to feel for animals because we see them, not as fellow sentient beings with equal rights to life ,liberty and happiness, but as creatures to be subjugated and used and abused according to our self-centered wants and needs.

    The 14 Borneo pygmy elephants , belonging to a rare and dying species, are believed to have been poisoned to death. Officials in Sabah believed that they have been poisoned by “substances left out by workers at nearby plantations to DETER THEM FROM EATING THE (OIL)PALM FRUITS”.

    For the greed of man, these poor elephants have been poisoned with a type of poison that had caused much suffering. Death came with much pain as there had been severe lacerations found and signs of severe bleeding in the dead animals’ digestive tracts.

    It is painful to see that lives are less important than money and wealth.

  21. Lim (KH JB) on Feb 12, 2013 at 1:56 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this news to us.

    Every sentient being have the right to live, hopefully the truth will be come out soon.

    May everyone be more compassion to all sentient beings…

  22. Martin on Feb 12, 2013 at 12:07 am

    Such is the ignorance of man that make us do wicked things without counting the cost. There are already so few of them (1200 throughout the country) and yet they were poisoned without as much as a second thought. And all to save some palm fruits. It is quite scary how lives of sentient beings mean nothing to some people and they care more for palm fruits.

    Now only do human beings encroach into the natural habitat of these elephants and deny them their space but we also kill them not because they are dangerous but because they are an inconvenience to business. Not only the workers who poison them but also the owners of the plantation/business should be held accountable. Unless there is serious repercussions for the crime, it will not stop.

    Reading stories like this makes me wonder at which point we became so callous and insensitive to other life forms. Things like ivory and tiger skins are not necessities but merely luxury items that do not warrant the taking of lives.

  23. Pastor Yek Yee on Feb 12, 2013 at 12:07 am

    What happen to the death of 14 Borneo pygmy elephants at Gunung Rara Forest Reserve in Tawau? I really want to know what was happen to them? How can they die like this? Who give them poison? Who will take responsible for their death?

    It’s human fault again or other reason? I feel very sad when I read this post. I feel so upset because I cannot do something to protect them who always faced threaten in their life.Their life is so fragile and same with us, so please work together make KFR growing. Then more sentient being can be protect and bless such as lovely pygmy elephants.

    Thank you for Rinpoche share this post to us. It like an awake alarm for me!

  24. Julien Roth on Feb 11, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    This is horrible. Why would people do such things to elephants. They are such kind and gentle animals. I love them, and i love how big and slow they are. So cute. And just knowing that people out there kill these nice animals, makes me very upset. I wish i could have done something to make a difference.

    And to know that this happened in Malaysia is even more depressing. I can’t believe that my fellow malaysians would have done such a terrible thing, this all has to stop in Malaysia, i can’t handle to take such bad news.

  25. Jessica Yap on Feb 11, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    I do not see any logical reasons to harvest those animals parts or killing those poor helpless animals. All in the name of benefiting our own ‘health’ apparently. I believe that all these claims are part of the self fulfilling prophecy. People will believe anything exotic benefits them. Disgusting!
    At the end of the day, there isn’t concrete scientific proof that it works. It is already bad enough to consume animal. But these people takes it a step further by harvesting the parts of wild animals. So sad!

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  26. tenzin llhamo on Feb 11, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I read the news in the papers and it’s not something you want to read about early in the morning. Sad news…
    Why would people want to do things like that? I hope the authorities get the culprits if there are. We should be responsible for animals coz they can’t speak for themselves. Share news of all animal abuse and hope that the others will too. Let’s help them have a voice.

  27. Andrew Boon on Feb 11, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Oh dear… This is shocking news! I do not understand why the Malaysian authorities can’t find the cause of death for these poor elephants… Something is amiss here!

    Us humans, the supposedly most intelligent by far of all other species on this planet, once again proves that we are the most short sighted of them all. Surely all the deforestation for the sake of development and the economy is such a farce. We are losing our planet… time to wake up!

    Weather conditions around the world is in chaos… we are experiencing more blizzards, storms, floods then we ever did. Global warming is no longer an IF, we are going through it right now.

  28. David Lai on Feb 11, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    So sad for the endangered animals and its really sad that animal welfare and such awareness in Malaysia is quite low. It is nice that religious leaders take this upon themselves to promote something that is not just about people. Even in Judeo-Christian religions, animals are also creations of God just like ourselves. Therefore, they should be respected and cherished like ourselves. Just because we are smarter doesn’t really give us the license to kill and use them as much as we like.

    Saving endangered animals is a noble cause but I think nothing could nobler if we are able to go vegetarian with the thought to put an end to animal suffering. We humans are consuming meat without any conscience of how the meat comes from animals that are brought up in horrible conditions in huge and tight farms and the pain of being slaughtered can scar any child for life. Although a small step but together, a larger vegetarian population can contribute to a movement that will lessen the demand on meat. That would mean fewer animals being slaughtered. Now that is significant.

    This is terrifically sad and ever so shaming that it’s happening in our own country. It’s shocking how such negligence can lead to such tragedy. Even sadder is the realisation that perhaps the people behind these chemicals don’t even really care… or that it was just a job to them.

    I saw this up on Facebook a few days ago and have shared it (http://www.facebook.com/jpf.khoo/posts/520730647983869) Please everyone share it on yours too and make it viral. We can’t let these people get away with something so horrific and also, we need to put pressure on authorities to make it far more difficult for people to repeat something like this again in the future. Penalties for animal cruelty in this country need to be far, far tougher and implemented much more strictly – if we can let this kind of atrocity happen to what are truly the most native beings of our land, then what does it say about the kind of people we are? What more does it say about what we are capable of doing to every other animal in our country and even, shockingly, to each other?

    This is such a sad news to read! WHO on earth would be so irresponsible or so heartless to use chemicals on the land where there are so many creatures. And if you can create negative karma from killing a mosquito imagine the negative karma for killy huge giant animals like elephants!

    I hope the culprits will be found soon. In the meantime we should share this news, tweet it, FB it and make it go super viral everyday until they get to find the murderers/culprits. The sharing of this news would also draw attention to seek expert help they require to find out just what exactly killed these giant babies.

    The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

    The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

    Mekong River is incredibly important for millions of people in China. It flows through many countries: China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and finally Vietnam. But weird and it is shocking to know the dogs cruelty, smuggling and trading just for the meat across Asia, through the famous river, What a cruel business. Need to be aware of visiting all this countries.

    The veneration of relics is an ancient custom that plays an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Shamanism. For example, sites that house holy relics in Christianity are major pilgrimage destinations because it is believed that these relics are a benediction to the living and the deceased.

    In Buddhism, holy relics generally refer to the physical remains or personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni. Incredibly, some of Buddha Shakyamuni’s bodily remains have survived for two and a half millennia, including the much-revered sacred tooth of the Buddha in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

    Most Buddhist temples have stupas, and these stupas are often created specifically to house precious relics. Such reliquary stupas often become the initial structure around which the whole temple is later based. Today, stupas may also hold the ashes or ringsel (relics in Tibetan) of prominent or respected Buddhist masters.

    Towering imposingly and majestically in the sky, mountains are believed to possess supernatural properties because they are closer to heaven than any other earthly feature. Interestingly, many mountains are linked to spirituality and enlightened beings, such as the Buddha and Jesus.

    From the earliest times, many peoples from the Greeks and Native Americans to the Indians and Polynesians have placed mountains central to their beliefs. The power of such sacred places is believed to enhance the mortal experience and sometimes, it is even forbidden to climb them out of respect.

    The mountain calls to us with its calm and serene environment and is often chosen as the site for religious retreats. Pilgrimages to holy mountains are also a way to connect to the sacred and they allow us to purify our sins through the rigour of an arduous climb. In some religions, adherents are urged to make such a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

    Here is a selection of sacred mountains scattered across the globe. They are revered by people separated by vast spaces but united in their awe and regard for these magnificent giants of nature.

    Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County, northwest China’s Gansu Province, is an annual destination for tourists, Buddhists and pilgrims from around the world. They gather to witness the unveiling of the world’s largest thangka (tapestry) of Buddha, as part of the Grand Monlam Prayer festivities.

    Also called the “Sunning of the Buddha” ritual, at this time, Tibetan monks invite a giant thangka about 100-feet long and 65-feet wide of Buddha Amitabha, up a mountain near Labrang Monastery, which is the largest Tibetan monastery outside of Lhasa.

    It is unveiled at first light on the side of the mountain so that the first rays of the sun illuminate the sacred painting.

    This is not the only story about how Rinpoche helped others. I remember reading an article about Rinpoche buying lottery tickets from a woman in Thailand so she could end her day earlier with the income she needs for the family. Rinpoche always walked the talks, he didn’t just preach but he showed us how to put his teachings in practice. Never be afraid to be kind and nice to others, and when we are kind to others, it should not be with the intention to get something back from them. Be kind and be generous always, this is how we can make our planet a better living space.

    If we want to go on holidays, it is better to go to holy places. Even if such places are not sophisticated, they benefit us spiritually; we can take a break and collect merit, plant Dharma seeds and be blessed. This is a good way of combining the pleasure of holidays with the spirituality of collecting merit.

    Never get tired of collecting merit because it offsets negative karma that leads to suffering. People without Dharma will not know this so for them, a holiday is a holiday. They do not know that their holidays will bring no long-term benefit. With Dharma, we are wiser.

    We should go on pilgrimage to places where holy beings are known to reside or where great practitioners have engaged in profound practices. These places are vortexes of energy – an area where concentrated energy naturally converges on the planet’s surface.

    Mainland Thai culture is heavily influenced by Buddhism. However, unlike most other Buddhist countries of East Asia, Thai Buddhists follow the Theravada school of Buddhism. Thai temples, known as wats, are usually adorned with lavish gold ornaments, and are easily identifiable by their multi-coloured pointed roofs. Pre-Buddhist traditions have been infused with the values of Buddhism, making Thailand a cultural powerhouse.

    According to Buddhist history, the first recorded use of incense occurred during Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, when a woman named Magadha Sangmo offered incense and prayers to request the Buddha to come forth and visit her village. Magadha Sangmo was the daughter of the Buddha main patron, Suddatta. She mirrored her father’s immense faith in Buddha Shakyamuni and was his ardent devotee.

    After marrying and moving to a village where Buddhism was not practised, she wished very much to meet her guru, the Buddha, again. So one day, she climbed to the roof of her in-law’s house, offered incense and sincerely prayed for the Buddha to visit her. Hearing her prayers, Buddha Shakyamuni, together with his entourage, descended from the sky to fulfil her request. It is said that upon meeting the Buddha and hearing his teachings, the entire village became Buddhists. In this way, Magadha Sangmo’s heartfelt request to the Buddha also benefited those around her and succeeding generations.

    Magadha Sangmo recited the following verse while engaged in prayer to the Buddha:

    MA LU SEM CHEN KUN GYI GON GYUR CHING
    DU TE PUNG CHAY MI ZAY JOM DZAY LHA
    NGO NAM MA LU YANG DA KYEN GYUR PAY
    CHOM DEN KOR CHAY NAY DIR SHEG SU SOL

    Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity is reflected in the country’s packed calendar of events and festivals. Most of these celebrations have religious or cultural origins and many are also designated as either state or national holidays.

    Celebrated by everyone in the country, the colourful festivities which observe the ethnic traditions and beliefs of the varied backgrounds of the population are what gives Malaysia the label of “Truly Asia” that it is so well known for.

    The national events and festivals of Malaysia are occasions for family reunions and for joyful community get-togethers. They are world-class examples of how diversity can be inclusive and celebrated.

    Many of these days of observation follow the lunar calendar, thus the dates they fall on vary from year to year.

    Before our globalised world of jet-setting travel, cosmopolitan cities and urban migration, the entire region of the Malay archipelago was, for more than 600 years, an international destination for Arab, Indian and Chinese maritime traders and European explorers who, through the centuries, settled down for trade or for love in these parts, thus creating cosmopolitan communities.

    A true melting pot, Malaysia is one of those rare places in the world where people of different ethnic origins, cultures, traditions and religious beliefs have infused harmoniously to form a distinct multicultural society.

    This country’s rich heritage includes hundreds-of-years-old temples, churches and mosques — some of these located within doors of each other, others having in one place shrines dedicated to deities of different faiths or denominations. All of them have played a key role (and still do!) in shaping the nation by being centres for the community to convene and connect spiritually.

    If you were in Flatwoods in Braxton Country, West Virginia around September 1952, chances are you would have been caught up in the hype surrounding the first sighting of an unknown creature. Back in 1952, the town of Flatwoods was practically unknown. Hence, the media of the time opted to name the controversial creature ‘the Braxton Country Monster’.

    However, as interest in the creature grew, the media adopted the more geographically-correct name of ‘Flatwoods Monster’. It was also named ‘The Phantom of Flatwoods’ and ‘The Green Monster’.

    The Flatwoods Monster is widely claimed to be some form of extra-terrestrial, primarily because it has been sighted near a large unidentified flying object (UFO).

    In fact, due to the nature of the sighting, many ufologists consider it to be a close encounter of the third kind i.e. a UFO encounter in which at least one animated creature, in the form of humanoid or robot, is the pilot or occupant of the UFO.

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