Could you do this???

Dear students and friends,

It is important to be aware of all the things that happen around us especially those that concern animals who are harmed. It’s important to see this video. It is time you watched this video no matter how horrible please.

One of my students, Sarah, shared with me a very disturbing video… through an undercover, this video reveals pet dogs being given away by their owners to be slaughtered for meat in Korea. Please understand that there are many countries where dog meat is served as a culinary dish… for example China, Vietnam and many others, I am only mentioning Korea here because this featured video is based on the situation of the dog meat trade in Korea.

In Korea, the sale of dog meat in markets and restaurants is legal. There are many dog farms around the country that breed dog for meat… just like how cows, chickens, pigs etc are bred as livestock. It is ‘illegal’ to sell former pet dogs as meat due to fear that such practice would lead to an uproar of protesters. However, selling former pets is still silently done in the markets and dog meat farms. Pet dogs are treated much better than farmed dogs… they get better food, more room for exercise, etc etc… so they fetch a higher price…

How does someone go from a friend to a piece of meat to fill your stomach? It is unimaginable to me…

Please do watch the videos and tell me what you think. What can we do to create more awareness of this horrible practice? Please share this with all your friends… create the awareness. Don’t say that nothing will come out of just sharing because when there are more people against the dog meat trade, these countries will be forced to change due to social pressure.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The videos is very appalling. I see disgust, betrayal, greed and ignorance from those dog owners that sold their pets to be slaughtered.

    I believed the dogs had used there whole life to entertain and be there for the owners. What made me sad that the owners repay them by sending them off to be killed. Has humanity had reached this low to betray even our closest furry friends?

    I had also read about a dog eating festival that is around June in China. Thousands of dogs are being slaughtered during this festival and eaten. I cannot imagine that people are gathered to celebrate the massacre of another animal. Because of our attachment and selfishness to food, we had created tremendous negative karma and it will surely come back to us, it is just the matter of time.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    感恩仁波切的开示与教诲

    一切众生具有情,我们又怎么能忍心的伤害与残杀可爱的它们呢?

    佛法相信一切的因果,与轮回,我们学习佛法,就是为了能累积更多的善业,能摆脱轮回之苦

    它们这辈子不幸的轮为畜生道,就是因为恶业的使然才会这样,倘若我们这辈子因为善因而难得地得着人身,能听闻佛法,修行佛法,然而我们却没有好好地利用我们的善因,却不断地杀生造业,那么我们下辈子又会因为我们造下的业力而轮回到哪里呢?

    祈愿一切有情众生都能离苦得乐,在轮回的圈里,能投生人身,并投生在有佛法的地方,修习佛法,并迈向证悟

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法论

    This is just purely disgusting. How is it possible to just kill these animals that are so cute and loveable?

    They are our friends that are always loyal to us. How can we even do that? If that is normal and humane, it would mean that we can even kill our own family for their meat just to satisfy that craving in us that would never be satisfied.

  4. Lucas Roth on Oct 20, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    this is so horrible! i keep telling people “eating meat is like eating your own dog, that is horrible.” but now they are literally eating their own pets! i am happy i am a vegetarian, plus animals and pets are meant to be loved and cared for. people make me sick nowadays.

  5. Wylfred on Sep 15, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    以前就会因为想补充多点蛋白质而吃很多肉类。没想到我们的一口之欲是造成很多动物就此丧命。 我现在已经开始吃素, 希望不久的将来可以守素食戒。

    This is just horrible! How could people just capture stays like this and treat them like that? All animals have the right to live, we should never encourage markets like this. It is just horrible!

    A pet is a life time commitment, we should never abandon our pets even though it may be a burden to us. If they are a burden, we should have never gotten them in the first place!

  8. beatrix ooi on Jun 17, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    This is kinda gross. No matter where these incidents happen, they are still very wrong. Pet dogs are meant to be kept at home, they are meant to be loved and taken care of. How can people be so mean and cruel to sell away their beloved pets? Money is important, but if this is how they earn their money then I realky do not think that it’s right.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  9. Felix Kong on May 17, 2013 at 12:30 am

    Crazy , why they can be so cruel to their pets. Dog is very honest to their owner and no harm to owner , why wanna eat them ? Must share to my friends. Pray for this dogs , Om Mani Padme Hum , may they have a good reborn and free from this suffering .

  10. Jessica Yap on May 16, 2013 at 12:05 am

    This is so sickening. I cannot stomach the fact that people has no qualms about eating their pet or In this case, men’s best friend. Eating meat is already bad enough, now we resort to eating our pets? Have we really ran out of livestock to eat? So what next? Our pet cats? Or humans? Us humans are really something.. We eat ANY living thing that we can find. Sad isn’t it? We are no different than the animals.

    I really hope that us humans will realize that this is not right.. Eating our pets or just eating meat just isn’t right.. Numerous extensive scientific research has been done on how humans can love without eating meat.

    So please, we should stop eating our friends..

    Thank you for sharing,Rinpoche!

  11. Jutika Lam on Feb 17, 2013 at 1:23 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Oh My Buddha!!! I just couldn’t bring myself to watch the other videos after watching the first video!

    I mean no offence to to Korea because I do have a few Korean Friends around my Neighborhood but really I just can’t believe that there would be people who would want to sell their dogs just for some money.

    To me only someone with a very stone cold heart would do such a thing to thousands and thousands of Innocent dogs. Why would anyone in the world want to kill cute, innocent, lovely and companions for life doggies just to eat them???

    It is hard to believe that everyday lots and lots of dogs and other animals are being tortured and killed just for their meat and sometimes fur. 🙁

    May the world become vegetarian so that all animals will have the freedom to live their lives to the fullest.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this gruesome but true news to me.

    Love
    Jutika

  12. patsy on Jan 2, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    This is so disgusting!!! How can anyone give their pets away to be killed for human consumption? These dogs are not the only ones who suffered. Pigs, cows, chicken and other animals also suffered this fate. Stop eating meat so that we can stop this butchery.

    See how animals are abused and killed for our eating pleasure: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/secret-abattoirs-in-the-uk.html

  13. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 2, 2013 at 4:56 am

    Couldn’t imagine how could man best friend end up on their plates….

  14. beatrix ooi on Oct 23, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    So sick! How can the people do this to the dogs? It is so undeserved. Every being deserves a chance to live, how can the people just take their lives away just for the sake of eating. It is so so wrong. OM MANI PADME HUNG.

  15. Julien Roth on Oct 21, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    I couldnt bare to watch this videos. Its just terrible what people in Korea do to do these dogs. Not trying to offend any Koreans, i have many Korean friends.

    I hate how they treat the dogs. They put them in cages, they show no compassion, its as though they like to see these animals get hurt. This has to stop. No body should be buying food like this. In fact, nobody should be buying meat. Please try to be vegetarian. At least a few days a week.

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche. I will try to get more friends to be vegetarian.

  16. EricLee KHJB on Sep 10, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    以前无肉不欢的我,没有意识到吃肉会有什么不好,可是在机缘巧合的情况底下,认识了仁波切,有幸在他的指导下,可以透过EARTH LINK的这一部记录片,看到动物被宰杀的情形,让我萌起吃素的念头,试想想,如果换成你是那个被杀的动物,你会有什么感受。所以,如果你真的有感觉的话,就响应仁波切的呼吁,成为一个素食者吧,你会有意想不到的收获。

  18. Grace Leong on Sep 4, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    Selling their Beagles , terriers , Maltese and other pet dogs to slaughter houses !! What sort of pet owners are they ??? It’s common to hear that some pet owners buy puppies cause they are cute and when the puppies grow to bigger dogs and seem to look less “cute” they are abandoned or given away . But this is the first time I read of dog owners who sell their dogs to be slaughtered for cuisine !! I agree with Henry that other animals like chicken , eels, frogs etc being slaughter in the wet markets are no different . The cruel methods used are the same . Only when there is no demand for such food , then there will be less sufferings for all the animals . Meat free diet is the way to go !!

  19. Fiona Dean on Sep 4, 2012 at 12:53 am

    I can not believe the cruelty these dogs suffer at the hands of these butchers. Even animals in a slaughterhouse are treated with some respect. Dogs are man’s best friend. To the people who sold their pets to the butchers ‘God has seen’ and to the butchers ‘God has seen’. No respect for life is very evident in these awful videos.

  20. June Tang (KHJB) on Sep 3, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    This are not an easy video to watch,I really cannot finish watching all the video! Those killers absolutely cruel..…speechless beyond words!” The suffering endured by the animals ends up pleasuring the human’s taste buds. This video will help create a lot of awareness and will definitely encourage more people to become vegetarian . Please don’t hurt animals,be kind to them,please go for vegetarian!! Remember,the situation will changing by ur own karma !!!

  21. Uncle Eddie on Sep 1, 2012 at 11:53 am

    As the centuries old popularized-saying goes – “THE ONE ABSOLUTELY UNSELFISH FRIEND THAT MAN CAN HAVE IN THIS SELFISH WORLD, THE ONE THAT NEVER DESERTS AND NEVER BEEN PROVEN UNGRATEFUL OR TREACHEROUS IS THE FAITHFUL “DOG”. Always being used as such iconic figure and classic example is “hachiko” a truly faithful and loyal pet dog of a Japanese university professor in Shibuya, Japan, who is always found waiting at the same spot of Shibuya train station everyday for his dead master, for 10 years, without knowing that the professor had suddenly died of a heart attack! Many other true instances had also been given of dogs behaviour in terms of loyalty, integrity and love at times of danger, and many have said to hve even sacrificed their lives at scenes of crime, protecting their owners and families. In view of the facts of comments given in this blog, how could anyone do this, as asked in the blog. In our practice, it’ll be more like eating and enjoying our own mothers,fathers, brothers, sisters or even our own children’s flesh for that matter! How dracularistic and animalistic such behaviour will seem – a mindless and devilish being amongst living humans.

  22. Wah Ying on Sep 1, 2012 at 1:57 am

    If we take our pet as one of our family members, how could we sell our family members to eaten?

    I just came across a news in Taiwan on animal shelters,you just can’t imagine a shelter supposed to take care of the animals that harm and kill them:

    “More than 1.25 million stray animals have been caught and put into public animal shelters during the past 13 years, but as much as 82 percent of them have been put to death or died in the shelters because of insufficient regulations, animal rights activists said at a demonstration in Taipei yesterday…”

  23. tenzin llhamo on Aug 30, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Its really really sad to watch animals being tortured and treated like that. How cruel! Please don’t be irresponsible. I dare not adopt animals because I can’t take care of them well and I don’t want them suffer but if people say they love and accept them as pets, the should take full responsibilities. I hate it when people treat their ‘pet’ like a watch dog! Chained 24 hours a day! How would you like to be chained the same way?

  24. Wendy Loh on Aug 29, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    🙁 I cannot comprehend why some humans can be so cruel. I can’t complete the entire video… It makes me sick. I don’t think we need any philosophical debates over this. It is pure cruelty. It has got to stop.

  25. Lim Han Nee on Aug 28, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Most horrendous! I can’t make myself watch this though I can well imagine what’s going on.Louise, I agree with you.Just imagine, one day, the animals rise against us and decide to put us in cages and eat our succulent flesh as food! In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the pigs in a farm overthrew the farmer and his farm hands and kicked them out of the farm!

    In any case, if we believe in Karma and in what’s told us in The Wheel of Sharp Weapons, those of us who kill animals, like our own(arggh!) pets and eat them, will be reborn as the animals and will suffer the torment of being as brutally killed for food!

  26. abby f on Aug 28, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    It is sad to see the dogs are in suffering, so do the people who are doing this. They will have to face their karma one day, they will get the same thing back one day, and there will be people to do the same thing to them. This is a non-stop cycle, if all of us don’t realise how scary this cycle is!

    Stop harming and eating animals! Don’t lie to yourself that animals don’t have feelings and they don’t feel pain. If they don’t have any feeling they don’t feel pain, then why your pet has to go to vet or take medicine?

    We can do something to stop the cycle! Buddha taught this 2500 years ago.

  27. Lim (KH JB) on Aug 28, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for sharing this article with us. Every sentient being got the right so live. We truly hope that may our prayer can clear all our ignorance and bless all the sentient beings to take a good rebirth that can able to meet Dharma at their next life… Om Mani Peme Hum…

  28. Milly on Aug 28, 2012 at 3:10 am

    I braved myself to watch the 1st two parts of the video. Feel deep pain to watch these poor dogs being killed so mercilessly. Who is to be blamed? The pet owners, the customers or the traders? Everyone. The former pet owners who could so coldly give away their pets knowing pretty well the fate they will face. Also the customers cos if there is no demand for such meat then they will be no need for these killings. The butchers who are so cold-hearted. As I write this, there could be hundreds of dogs being slaughtered right now to be ready for sale tomorrow morning. I pray that the government will impose severe penalty and punishment to these culprits. May all these poor dogs quickly get a good rebirth and meet the holy Dharma.

  29. lucy yap on Aug 27, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Such inhumane and abusive treatment of dogs,once a pet to someone.
    It’s so difficult for me to watch this video as I love dogs and I’m a lifelong pet owner.To actually watch their pain and suffering is unsettling and disturbing.Take care and love your pets till their last breath please!

  30. YenC on Aug 27, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Dear Rinpoche

    I could not bring myself to play the video, but that doesn’t mean I havent heard of such brutality. I can imagine their yelping. It is most unfortunate that such inhumane traits exist, where one chooses to abandon/dispose their pets in this manner out of SHEER CONVENIENCE. Sadly, the attitude of doing now, think later and not assuming any accountablity of one’s actions permeate in other areas of life too. And as long as one gets away with it, one feels “empowered” to continue the motion.

    It will take years of education to stop dog meat consumption. It is only when demand stops, then supplies cease.

  31. KH Ng on Aug 27, 2012 at 11:08 am

    This is real cruel, crazy and irresponsible. Does this people know what is compassion?

  32. Li Kim on Aug 27, 2012 at 1:13 am

    I cannot finish the videos, it is very sick. Why bring pets home when you will end up doing this? It is cruelty beyond believe. I can’t help to think of these people’s karma. They will return as dogs or burn in hell.

  33. Henry Ooi on Aug 27, 2012 at 12:31 am

    We flinch when we watch these videos but think nothing of it when we go to the wet market and walk pass, as if nothing happens, when chickens, frogs, eels, etc are being slaughtered before our eyes. There is no difference.

  34. Martin on Aug 26, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    It was very difficult to watch all the videos and I had to pause a few times especially scenes where dogs are dragged and then hung alive as they squeal for their lives. For me it was hard to watch because I know dogs. I know how sensitive they are, how friendly and warm they are and how loyal they are and what good friends they make. Dogs like some other pet animals make their presence felt in your life and they very quickly become part of your life. You immediately discover that a pet dog has no agenda other than to love you and be loved. I cannot imagine wanting to hurt one let alone giving away one to be slaughtered.

    One the one hand, killing dogs for meat is neither better or worse than killing other animals for food. Its just as bad to kill farm animals and wild animals for sports and food. But dogs to me are closer to being family than just mere animals.

    We live in what is supposed to be a civilized society and there’s so much free information about so many different subjects now. How people can still subscribe to old stories such as eating dog meat can be good for health is beyond me. Even if there is some half truths in those stories, are there not enough alternative supplements that one can walk into a shop to purchase without having to cause the torture and slaughter of a docile and gentle animals?

    There really is a lot of suffering in the world and so much ignorance.

  35. adrian chow on Aug 26, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Why would a person with a right frame of mind will do this to their own pets which they cared and spent some time with. I think it is a sick concept. We must all circulate this news online in order to create a certain level of awareness to the public. Hopefully, thru this effort we could help stopped this sick behavior from human kind – Om Mani Padme Hum…

  36. PhillisChin on Aug 26, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, i understand Rinpoche why ask us to watch all the animal abuse, slaughter no matter how disturbing it is. Beside Rinpoche wants us to be aware all these thing happen beside us, also wanted us to see, what and how the animal been through all these, and from there, we can understand more and will love, care animal more, or even be a vegetarian.
    I totally agree this, “Don’t say that nothing will come out of just sharing because when there are more people against the dog meat trade, these countries will be forced to change due to social pressure. ” I agree because of my personal experience. In last year i have saw a similar disturbing news, and it happens in our country. I share out to the public, or even to those animal welfare. Surprising there is result, the public share out the news, and few of the animal welfare went to check and guess what, the news were show in newspaper & tv news. So,these people will be forced to change due to social pressure, it is true. and we’re the one who have the responsibility, as we, human create all these.

    Thank You Rinpoche.

  37. Jasline Tay (MBF) on Aug 26, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I just had an argument with a friend on why I became a vegan.
    As her logic is tat chicken, cow, sheep & pig etc… are meant to be reared for human to be eaten
    She’s a dog lover…
    This video is good as tis will show tat no animals are meant to b reared for food!

  38. DR on Aug 26, 2012 at 9:46 am

    Disgusting! There is so much food on this planet to feed everyone why do we need to kill to survive?

    This dog meat eating is also common in Bali. One of my friends who is a dog rescuer told me that each time when she puts up dogs for adoption, she has to personally visit the home of the prospective adopter to make sure that their intention is truly to adopt and care for the dog and not for other cruel intentions.

  39. Jamie Puon on Aug 26, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Will they change their job?

  40. judy lam on Aug 26, 2012 at 3:14 am

    It is horrifying to know that such cruelty is acceptable in Korea. What is worse is that some of the dogs are former pets. It is good that the TV station who recorded this put it out in the open, and hope that it has raised awareness on animal cruelty in the modern world today. I am more people will continue to promote such awareness especially in countries such as Korea, Vietnamese or China so that less animals will be killed for food.

  41. ysun on Aug 25, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    i can’t brave myself to hit the play button. i can image it is so cruel 🙁

  42. MayOng on Aug 25, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    When we are in China or Vietnam, it is a common sight to see dog meat hung up on roadside stalls to be stewed. It is definitely not part of the Chinese culture that had been taught to children of this generation. Many people have pet dogs, like myself but we don’t give them away to be eaten as food. Dogs are loyal friends. How can we eat them. Disgusting!

  43. cindy on Aug 25, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    I remember when i was very young, i did see people eating dogs meats, i was thinking how can they do this to dogs, Dogs look after the house for us & they even take care of disable people.

  44. Tashi Dorji on Aug 25, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    Honorable Rinpoche,
    I feel your sadness in what you see but we are but humble people so please guide us as to what we can do to stop such things.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Tashi

  45. Louise Lee on Aug 25, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Today we take dog meat ! May be one day we’ll take some others meat !

    nothing can make us to feel enough !

    if you can be vegetarian today , it to be good!

    If you cant , then dont try to do something funny !!

    May be one day you’ll hear that human meat is Sweet , Fresh & full of Vitamin !!

    Will you take it too ? If we dont stop ourself , next time we’ll in the cage ! Waiting someone to kill us !

  46. Irene Lim on Aug 25, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Oh my goodness, it is so disgusting! OM MANI PADME HUM….

  47. HelenaC on Aug 25, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Dear Rinpoche, sorry i can’t watch these video but i know exactly what happen as i read alot of these news. I really could not understand how can these people do that, but i am bless i can’t understand so that i won’t be one of them! Human greeds and selfishness harm so many other beings, i really hate that! For a dog lover i find that is really really cruel and unkind because they have feelings too. They have mom and family too. This act is totally not acceptable. I hope more people aware of this and stop all these cruel act. Eating a dog it will not make us any stronger and it won’t benefit our health or what so ever but it brings pain to others!!
    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  48. Nico on Aug 25, 2012 at 11:29 am

    For caring pet owners, it’ll be like “giving” the children they’ve raised to be slaughtered. To any humane people amongst us, it’s no different from betrayal of a friend or even an acquaintance who’s totally helpless and dependent on us for mere survival. Where’s their (betrayers’) morality and conscience?!! Perhaps they feel they’re just raising another ‘broiler’ animals in their backyards 🙁

  49. mitra on Aug 25, 2012 at 10:01 am

    so sad poor animal.we can stop to eat animal ? i have realy no idea.i prayer for them.

  50. Sonam Yangden on Aug 25, 2012 at 8:06 am

    Dear Rinpoche la,

    I just couldn’t watch the videos because this line gave me goose-bums “pet dogs being given away by their owners to be slaughtered for meat in Korea” I felt it was like giving away your OWN CHILD to be slaughter for meat! :'(

    We all have heard the saying ‘what goes around comes around’, We need to be very conscious about our deeds because Karma hits you back at the most unexpected times.
    Good intentions and Good deeds results in Good Karma and wrongful intentions and wrongful deeds results in bad Karma.

    Those actions or karma get carried forward at the time of death with us on our memory. They are a list/record of everything we have done in our past life. Therefore, our mind, actions and words are very powerful weapon in our life, that should be mindful whenever we are using them.

    Thanks you for the good sharing.

    Mt. Shasta , in Northern California, is an active volcano that has erupted at least once per 800 years for the past 10,000 years. It is a massive snow-capped volcano surrounded by miles of pristine national forest. A Mountain of many legends which draws many spiritual seekers from around the globe each year . There are dozens of stories, legends and myths surrounding Mount Shasta, adding to its mystery and allure. The imposing mountain shows up in a lot of tribal myths and stories as the oldest-known human settlement in the area dates to about 7,000 years ago. Interesting…several mysterious and pretty creepy legends, started from them . Legend of an underground city below Mount Shasta…..was one of them. Even though its one of the most creepy places in Northern California yet it is also one of the most naturally stunning place to visit. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us more . Wow…. Some of Rinpoche’s student were fortunate to have visited this place full of mysterious, and sacred with Rinpoche. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Area 51 is referred to a map location and is the popular name for a United States Air Force base. What goes on inside is extremely secret. Members of the public are kept away by warning signs, electronic surveillance and armed guards. The secrecy surrounding the Area 51 has many people saying that there were many conspiracy theories. Some has claimed that the site hosts an alien spacecraft ,UFOs and aliens. Others claim to have seen UFOs above or near the site, while some say they have been abducted by aliens. They also claimed that Area 51 is home to the nation’s overhead surveillance program and most likely nothing else. For all the myths and legends, what’s true is that Area 51 no one knows but it is real. Heard of this area years ago , reading this post had me have more information and better understanding .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very interesting series which I do enjoyed. When mentioned of ghostly encounters many of us out of curiosity and interest will like to know more. Yes there are unseen beings or spirits every where its only that we can’t see them. As long as we do not disturbed them its fine. They are trapped by their negative karma. What we can do is doing prayers and dedicate it to them. Now we have Dorje Shugden’s practice, to overcome negative and harmful energies and for protection against spirits or unseen beings. We can also arrange prayers through Kechara for them. Interesting stories , watching the first series video .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of beautiful ancient thangkas. It’s a rare opportunity to see all these ancient Tibetan thangkas of various Buddhas. These rare ancient thangkas range from very simple early Indian sculptures of the Buddha and Dharma Protectors. Many images of Dorje Shugden were found in those ancient thangkas and has been relied upon by all sects of Tibetan Buddhism. All traditions and schools of Buddhism had propitiate Dorje Shugden centuries ago. Looking at those ancient thangkas tells a thousand words. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.

Interesting miraculous events that happened before along her journey which will definitely serve as an inspiration for us. Learning is a treasure especially learning from someone mistakes. We benefit from learning from others, as it helps us to make better choices ourselves.

    Money is an important factor in everyone’s life. Holding cash on you hand isn’t enough. It’s how you value it, use it, grow it, and spend it, that matters most. Money is only a tool or medium to achieve happiness, it may not guarantee happiness.

    In this Covid -19 pandemic situations we know many lost their jobs , The middle class shrunk as thousands of people were pushed in poor class . On the other hand rich people were not affected much financially.

    If one seek happiness, friendliness, charitable disposition, concern for others, and similar attributes, no amount of money can buy these, you get them only by cultivating positive attitudes at the very young age.

    Contrary to what most people think, it is not money or the love of money which is the root of evil—it is greed, a love of power and authority, poverty, and a fear of want which are often the roots of evil in this world.

    One of the greatest blessings for Buddhist practitioners of our time manifested all because of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar-saint. In the book “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors“, the Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso had confirmed Depa Norbu as the murderer of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. The Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso was a Gelugpa Lama and a direct disciple of Pabongkhapa Déchen Nyingpo. He was a junior tutor of the H H the 14th Dalai Lama and also a teacher who had taught many Gelug Lamas in the West. Due to jealousy and envy court officers of the 5th Dalai Lama murdered Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. Interesting read of this post.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    In a nutshell, Hong Kong is famous for attractions such as Causeway Bay, The Peak, and Hong Kong Disneyland. A city where skyscrapers meet centuries-old temples, Hong Kong is also known for its night markets filled with delights like dim sum and egg waffles. There’s so much more to this vibrant city. From a stunning skyline to surprising and gorgeous natural sceneries . There are many places of interest for locals and tourist such as Hong Kong Disneyland, Tian Tan Buddha , temple street night market to name a few. Renowned as the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong is a world of exquisite, mouth-watering international dining options and most peaceful place to visit. The imposing structure Tsing Ma Bridge is one of the most prominent landmarks of Hong Kong and that links it to Lantau Island.
    I have not been to this beautiful Hong Kong yet but heard so much about the beauty which one day love to visit. Interesting read.

    Beautiful unique island that’s belongs to Japan with a beautiful history. Okinawa is Japan’s southernmost prefecture, consisting of a few dozen, small beautiful islands including many inhabited islands over a vast ocean area. This particular island is a so-called Blue Zone, an area where the people live longer than most others elsewhere in the world. Okinawans are known for their longevity. Okinawa has amazing star-gazing, diving, a unique cuisine and yes, cherry blossoms too. Its also known as the “Hawaii of Japan”. The seas surrounding Okinawa’s islands are considered among the world’s most beautiful with coral reefs and abundant marine wildlife. That’s wonderful with many attractions for tourist to explore especially the Gyokusendo Cave. Its a natural museum beautifully carved over 300,000 years where this limestone cave is grown on a coral reef. Looking at those amazing pictures of the caves tell all. Interesting read and a place worth visiting to get away from the hot weather and the noise of cities. A place with plenty of interests, nice foods , cultural celebration and so forth.

    Thank you for this very interesting article on the amazing Xuanzang and his journey to the West. He is particularly famous for his valuable and historical spiritual journey to India. The life and adventures of a Chinese monk who made a 17-year journey to bring Buddhist teachings from India to China.

    Buddhism became more prevalent and more widely understood in China and subsequently elsewhere in the world. The record of his pilgrimage helps us to study and understand Buddhism and the cultures along the Silk Roads. It seems the Dharma has a life of its own as it worked its way to the West and the rest of the modern and developed world.

    I admire all these translators who made the teachings available to the rest of humanity of having translated it to the dominant language of today, and from that to other languages as well.

    Oprah Winfrey was once a television host, a producer, actress and philanthropist. Been the world’s only black billionaire, that has remained the greatest black philanthropist in American history. The Oprah Winfrey Show ended with thousands of episodes over 25 years. The show’s host addressed serious topics from racism, AIDS and sexual abuse and provided light-hearted moments for viewers. From celebrity interviews to the comedy interviews , which I did enjoyed watching those shows. I always loved and appreciated how she a stand out person willing to represent her people, and her opinions were very valid at times.
    Even in the face of adversity and hardship, she had gone through she made it to where she is now. Inspiring story behind , from rag to riches. Interesting read.

    Meditations are excellent for cognitive enhanced performance in our lives as well as relaxation. The silence and stillness we experience in meditation and
    the increased happiness and diminished stress. Calming our mind and gaining insight . Researchers had also observed that there is an immediate dramatic increase in performance on cognitive tasks following only Vajrayana styles meditation. Even just a single session of Vajrayana meditation have amazing benefits that can lead to radical enhancements in brain performance. That’s wonderful. Different meditation techniques have different results yet all meditation have excellent effects
    on the mind and body of each individual who practiced it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The main objective of this event which is held annually , encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights . Earth Hour is celebrated worldwide to show support for the fight against climate change and commitment towards a better planet. Well a wonderful idea and is an opportunity for millions of people world wide in support of nature and our planet. More countries are joining hands to combat the problems they are facing in fighting a cooler climate. By switching off our lights for one hour, we can make a substantial difference in energy consumption and can help reduce the effect of global warming on this planet. Earth Hour motivates people to look beyond the hour and has become a major catalyst for positive environmental impact. Its very important to preserving our environment for our future generations. Glad that Malaysia had joined the World to mark The Earth Hour in 2013.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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

One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya".
