Food is one of the most talked about subjects amongst people all over the world. We talk about our diet, food preference, what type of food is nice, where to get good food, how to cook food we like to eat, and so on. Some of us share our food recipes with friends, some offer to cook for others to sample and taste. Others make plans to travel long distances to try some food they heard of or read about. A new word – “foodie”, was coined over 30 years ago to describe people who love food. It is now so easy to Google for the supposedly best food in town and each country has its own unique type of food. Malaysia is considered a country that has good food due to its multiracial population. Each ethnicity has their own cuisine and in Malaysia these have even merged to create unique fusion dishes. Everyone has their own food preference. Many people love cheese, many also love durian and many do not. Hence the food industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. As the saying goes, everyone has to eat.

Humans being omnivorous have a far greater choice of food compared to carnivores and herbivores. Carnivores have to hunt daily to live. They have no choice but to kill for their food or die from starvation. In the animal world, they kill to live. Humans though, live to eat, and make food a pleasure: preparing, making and serving food becomes an art. Most of these foods are meat based, derived from animals butchered for human consumption.

Food companies hire marketing professionals to sell ideas to consumers to buy their beautifully packaged end products. But they do not inform the consumers how the food was produced. Meat harvested from slaughtered animals are processed and dressed with herbs, colourings and additives to make the food aromatic, nice to see and tasty. They spend a lot of money on advertisements. Chefs are employed by food companies to come out with recipes to make cooking at home easy for consumers. So much work, time and effort are put into all these for just a few seconds of pleasure – chewing and swallowing the food. Yet we go back for more because we get so attached to the sensory pleasure albeit even for a few meagre seconds. The memory that lingers on from the pleasures that we continuously seek is so strong that we ignore the plight and suffering of those animals reared in closed captivity. These animals are kept in tight and dirty enclosures, with sores and diseases; they spend their whole lives producing eggs, milk and offspring. They are continuously fed with growth hormones so they can be harvested in the shortest time possible. It is no surprise that diseases spread easily in closed quarters and unhealthy environments, hence livestock farmers give huge amounts of antibiotics to the animals. These antibiotics end up in us when we consume the meat but we do not see all of this. Yet, we enjoy such meat and we call it fresh meat. Countless animals are brutally butchered for their pelt, skin and meat, just to provide for human desire to wear leather products, to use animal by products and to consume them as food. When the time comes, these animals are killed, no sedatives are used. There is no such thing as mercy killing, in my opinion.

In some parts of the world, meat derived from wild exotic animals are considered a delicacy, these include the likes snakes, crocodiles, big cats, bears and primates, just to name a few. But these animals are also pets to pet lovers who, I think, would not want them to end up on dining tables in restaurants and in people’s homes. However, there are some people living in remote places like in forests, jungles, mountains who may not have access to the modern world. Hunting for game is a part of their way of life. They hunt to live, not live to hunt.

Farmers who grow vegetables and fruits for commercial profit are not innocent either. The use of chemicals in pesticides and in fertilisers kill billions of insects, worms and other living life forms that feed on vegetables and fruits. The so-called organic farms are not that many to cater for the human population, provided those farms are really organic ones. Farmers have little choice but to use chemicals for good yield else they may not be able to profit. At the end of the day, it is about profit. Farmers and companies that kill animals view animals as food. To them animals meant for the abattoir are cash in the bank, similar to robbers who see their victims as money bags and would not hesitate to hurt or even kill for it. The end does not justify the means.

There are many options for healthy food aside from growing our own vegetables and fruit trees. Yes, time is needed to prepare and till the soil, plant seeds, water, weed, fertilise but it is up to us to allocate the time if we want a diet consisting of non-meat food that is healthy and which spares animals from being slaughtered. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, rhizomes, roots all have the necessary ingredients and high fibre for good health. Some people think that a non-meat diet is expensive. On the contrary, it is not. The benefits from non-meat diets outweigh medical bills one has to fork out when one has sicknesses related to eating meat filled with chemicals and antibiotics. Therefore, it is worthwhile to change our eating habits to do so. It is worthwhile for our children, family and loved ones. It is up to us, we cannot change the world but we can lead by example. People wrongly perceive that non-meat food is not filling and not nutritious but the animal kingdom has huge herbivores that debunk this notion.

“Not eating animals is only unnatural when we are not used to it.”

~ Tsem Rinpoche

My Guru, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has been a strong advocate of a vegetarian lifestyle for many years. Watching videos of how animals are slaughtered is nothing compared to what the animals themselves have to go through in the slaughter house. These videos below are in fact a way to raise people’s awareness of how to stop eating meat and stop animal cruelty in any form, especially for food.

这个世界各个角落的人谈论得最多的话题,非食物莫属。我们谈论自己的饮食、饮食喜好、哪种食物是美食、往哪里找美食、如何烹调自己爱吃的东西等。我们当中还有人会跟朋友分享食谱,为其他人烹饪试味道;有的人会远涉他地,只为了一尝他们耳闻或阅读到的美食。“老饕”这一词就正好诠释了对食物讲究、爱吃之人。如今,只要上网一搜,就能找到城中最美味的食物,而每一个国家都有自己独特的美食。就好比拥有多个民族的马来西亚是个美食天堂,因为每个民族都有属于自己的美食。将各民族的美食结合起来,便形成了独树一格的风味。说到底,每个人都有自己的饮食喜好——有的人爱乳酪,有的爱榴莲,有的则不爱。因此,食品工业是几十亿资产的工业。毕竟,常言道:谁都必须吃。

相较于肉食动物和草食动物,人类作为杂食者在饮食上拥有更广泛的选项。肉食动物日日为生存而必须猎食。它们除了猎食充饥而别无选择。在动物世界中,它们必须猎食才能维生,而人类则是为吃而生存,将吃当成一种享受:从备食,到烹饪和上菜,每一个过程都可以是一种艺术。人类的美食大多都是以肉为主,以被屠宰的动物为主。

食品公司聘请专业行销人士向消费人销售一种概念,好让消费者购买食品公司包装华丽的食品。他们并不会向消费者透露食品的制作过程。那些从屠宰场运送出来的肉经过加工,如添加香料、色素和添加剂,使食品色香俱全。他们更会在打广告上砸重金。接着,食品公司再聘请大厨构思食谱,让消费者能在家中轻松烹食。为了那几秒的愉悦感——将食物咀嚼和吞下的那瞬间,我们是花了多少的时间和精力啊!尽管如此,我们依然一而再再而三地对那些美食念念不忘,因为我们对几秒钟的味蕾享受是如此执着。那个我们持续追求的味蕾享受不断萦绕在我们的回忆里,以至于我们可以忽视被囚禁在不见天日的空间的那些动物,它们的困境和痛苦。它们被关在既狭小又肮脏的地方,不是受伤就是患病。它们终其一生都在下蛋,给我们提供牛奶或幼子。人类为了能在最短的时间内获取它们的肉而不惜给它们注射荷尔蒙。生存条件如此恶劣,这也难怪疾病肆虐,而迫使禽畜农给动物们大量抗生素。这些抗生素最终被我们吃进肚子里,我们却看不见这一切。我们仍然将这些肉视作新鲜的肉品而垂涎之。不仅如此,为了获取动物的皮毛来满足人类穿戴皮革的欲望、为了使用动物制成品或是为了一解嘴馋,无数的动物被残忍杀害。更甚的是,在宰杀这些动物的时候,无人为它们注射麻醉药。在我看来,根本不存在什么人道的宰杀。

残害动物的其中一个例子:无数的动物被残忍杀害。这么做只为了满足人类穿戴皮革的欲望。 图片来源:https://thegreenvegans.com

在一些国家,野生动物也被视作美食,好比蛇、鳄鱼、野猫、熊和灵长目动物等。但这些动物对有的人来说是宠物,我想这些人不会愿意它们被呈上餐桌上。当然,我们也不能忽略住在偏远地区如森林、深山中的人,他们的生活方式跟城市人的不一样。对将野生动物视作美食的城市人,打猎是生活中的一种游戏,他们以打猎为乐,而非以打猎为生。

以金钱利益当先的菜农和果农也不是例外。他们大量使用的杀虫剂和肥料里头的化学成分杀死了附在蔬菜和水果上的上亿的昆虫和其他生命体。所谓的有机菜园的数量也无法满足人们的市场需要,而且是不是真正的有机,尚是个未知数。为了大量收成好确保不亏钱,菜农和果农们没有太多选择而只能选择化学品。说到底,盈利才是最重要的。将动物视作食物的禽畜农和食品公司,对他们来说,动物本来就属于屠宰场,它们是银行里的钞票,就如抢劫犯视受害者为一大个钱袋,他们会毫不犹豫地伤害,甚至杀害受害者以获取金钱。人人都有爱钱之心,但这无法合理化他们的做法。

除了自己种植蔬菜水果之外,其实还有许多获取健康食材的方法。是的,要是自己种植,我们会需要时间培养泥土、播种、浇水、除草、施肥。然而,若我们有意持健康素,有意保护动物免受杀害,我们可以自己决定安排时间进行这一切。蔬菜水果、坚果和根茎类食物都具有人体所需的营养和纤维。有的人则以为素食昂贵,但事实却恰恰相反。素食饮食所需的费用远远低于因为吃肉而衍生疾病所需的医药费。因此,改变我们的饮食习惯是值得的,对我们的孩子、亲人和至爱都是值得的。决定权在我们手中。我们或许没办法改变世界,但我们能树立榜样。人们对无肉饮食总有错误观念,认为无肉饮食吃不饱也吃不好,但动物王国里许多草食动物的存在就能证明这是个误解。

「若觉得不吃动物是不自然,那是因为我们不习惯罢了。」

——詹杜固仁波切

我的上师,尊贵的詹杜固仁波切多年来都致力于推广素食主义。或许有人认为,观看动物被宰杀的影片很残忍,但比起在屠宰场被宰杀的动物,我们的“不舒服”不及它们所承受的痛楚的万分之一。以下这些影片其实能起提高人们意识的作用,尤其能鼓励人们停止吃肉,并且善待动物。

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Henry for posting. My heart bleeds and mind pains for these beings, used as they are for the selfish wants of those who choose to consume their flesh. Vectors for disease, environmental disaster and unsustainability come to mind as we consider any future continuing on in such a deluded manner. The world simply can’t continue on exploiting animals to sustain human life. Unfortunately logic will not bring us to the forefront of change, we will be forced to realize the senselessness of the slaughter as we witness the cause that affects more and more suffering, which if you understand karma, will effect everyone in the long run. If you want to influence a positive result, stop eating meat. There are so many alternatives and if you think of the benefits all around, it really is a no brainer. Unfortunately a brain is required to see the lies you’ve been told to make you think your doing something healthy for yourself by eating animals. You may stave off hunger a short time, prolonging the inevitable, but you’ll die just the same, why drag so many others down with you?
    Grateful that you posted Pastor Henry, many thanks once again. Sorrow seeing the sadness of this destruction of life, happiness in knowing others see a solution in their refrain.

    每天上社交媒体,最多人刊登,也获得最热烈反应的,往往都是跟美食相关的帖子。中国人说“民以食为天”,又说“食色性也”,人类爱美食似乎是自然不过的事。这其实并不过分,毕竟作为人类,我们时时刻刻都受到各种感官上的诱惑,相对而言,爱美食并不伤害他人,而且跟其他欲望比起来,这算是无伤大雅的。然而,我们往往忽略了一点,即如果你是肉食者,你的爱美食其实就不是那么单纯,因为你送进口里的每一口肉类美食,其实都代表着一个生命的牺牲。动物的确必须因为你口舌之欲而牺牲,这是个事实,但很多不想听,不想看,或根本不敢看这些宰杀场的视频。敢吃而不敢看,那跟掩耳盗铃有什么两样呢?

    It is true that a lot of emphasis is based on food and the human consumption of same, whether we are meat eaters or vegetarians. Is this obsession of food be an imprint from having suffered hunger in our lives? It is pretty amazing that the first thing asked of a greeting amongst friends especially the Chinese is HAVE YOU EATEN.

    Family members spend hours talking about what food they have consumed for lunch and dinner when they met before the close of the day.

    Pastor Henry is correct that we HUMAN BEINGS live to eat. Something we will not avoid nor will let go off. So why not do something worthy with this attachment and to a certain degree our need to survive starvation. Eat with compassion and not kill for our food.

    One compelling point to letting go of being so obsessed with our food is to remember how good food we consume, they all come out of us the same mess of waste.

    Eat sufficiently not to die of starvation and eat compassionately. Most of all do not waste food.

    Interesting article……thank you Pastor Henry Ooi to bring awareness of how animals were killed for human consumptions. Do agree when it comes to foods , every one will be thinking of what to eat but will not realised the source of it. Malaysia is food heaven with a wide variety of foods and dishes from different ethnic groups. Generally people are eating more and eating higher-caloried food, and its time to change for more healthier foods. The cornerstone of a healthy diet should be to replace meat and processed food with real food such as vegetables, fruits and so on whenever possible. Eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it can make a huge difference to the way you think, look, and feel. Eating a variety of foods promotes good health and can help reduce the risk of disease in many ways.

  5. Ummamageswari on Jul 4, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about foods. It is true that Malaysia is considered a country that has good food due to its multiracial population. Humans being non-vegetarian have a far greater choice of food compared to the vegetarian ones.

    At the same time, countless animals are brutally butchered for their pelt, skin and meat, just to provide for human desire to wear leather products, to use animal by products and to consume them as food.

  6. Jacinta on Jul 3, 2019 at 1:09 pm

    Thank You Pastor Henry for this post.

    I believe awareness is the key here. We are not being aware that we actually KILLING these animals for our food. For many years, I’ve been having this wrong concept too, whereby animals are God’s given right for us to eat and stay healthy. Nonetheless, I was wrong. Very wrong.

    Okay, maybe my upbringing did shape the person who I was previously but that doesn’t justify the person for who I am now. Being aware is the first step but next, we have to take charge of it NOW and decide what’s going in my mouth next. Watching these videos, is so heartbreaking. Can I take it anymore? Nope. I am sorry. Even if it’s God’s given right, I will still opt for being a vegetarian. Their suffering is real. Their pain is real. Meat is off my plate for 5 years now and I’m happy about it, and I will be so for the rest of my life. Just like Pastor Henry has mentioned, thanks to Rinpoche for keep highlighting their plight.

    I’ve changed. Are you next? I

    Animals are like human beings. They will feel scared and they need protections. They are more vulnerable than human. Since we are stronger than them, we should protect them, but not inflict pain on them.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing with us this amazing news and inspiring occasion where Kechara has the chance to make offerings to sangha from Sri Lanka. These monks are pure monks and it is very meritorious when we can make such offerings to them.

    From this incident, I am able to see the true spirit of religion where the monks kindly accepted our offerings even though we are from a different sect of Buddhism and they even requested to bless the land on their own initiative. They have a good intention and wanted the Dharma to grow in Kechara sincerely.

    This is how it should be when it comes to religion. People should not discriminate based on the differences in their belief system.

    Rinpoche have always advice us that we should go to places full of spiritual power such to Bodh Gaya, Lumbini , Wu Tai San and so forth. Have an auspicious and meritorious trip instead of going for holidays to see places of interest. Rejoice to Pastor David for bringing your dad and your friend Paul with his mother for this wonderful meaningful pilgrimage to Nepal and India visiting powerful places of the tantric deity Vajrayogini and so on. And visiting Serpom monastery as suggested by Rinpoche to make offerings to the monks. Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words.
    I wish I could go on a pilgrimage to such Holy and scared place of Nepal and India some day.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing your memorable account of your pilgrimage with your dad, Paul and his mother.

    Very informative post of this Gyenze fire Puja or sometime known as the Fire Puja of the Wealth. In Buddhism, ceremonies are meant to provide a blessing. Gyenze fire Puja is no exception, is a very effective and powerful puja within the Tibetan Buddhism. And is considered the king of all pujas. Well its basically to remove all obstacles ,purifying negative karma, increase merits, dispel negative energies and pacifies unseen beings, that obstruct us from doing our Dharma practice. Wow……these are the 13 ingredients been offered during this fire Puja. I am fortunate to have witnessed one at Kechara Forest Retreat before and looking forward to the next Fire Puja this coming Saturday.
    Thanks Rinpoche for having those monks to perform this meritorious puja . And thank you all sponsors and those hardworking team making it possible.

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

    Find out what exciting plans that Rinpoche has: http://bit.ly/32NjBsV

    Over the years reading Rinpoche blog’s post , I have come across many true stories of how Rinpoche has helped countless of students and people in their career, sickness, business and so forth. Reading this post story is really amazing how relying on Setrap Protector and having trust and faith in our Guru has help Dato Eric Tan in his business . Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this sharing. May more people read this post and be inspired.

    Heartfelt watching the beginning of the video. Could imagine the fear the furry Edie encountered, so much so hiding at the corner. Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

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.

    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

After the Bird Liberation, we proceeded with Dorje Shugden puja. Just before we started our puja, Pastor Patsy gave us a short Dharma Sharing. Pastor spoke about Dharma practice in these days and reminded us to always keep our samaya with Guru intact. To honour our promises, reduce our worldly activities and practice Dharma strongly. Thank you Pastor for the valuable advice~Jacinta, KPSG
