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! :'(

    In general jealousy seems to be bad for any relationships. It’s a feeling of resentment against someone, feeling of insecurity and conflict. It’s human nature. It’s natural to feel jealous from time to time. Well it becomes problematic when we act out in jealousy. Everything happen for a reason, some people have been doing well , wealthy and some do not , all these are our past karma. We should not feel jealous but rejoice for them. We should try self-confidence letting go the situation. Jealousy can be harmful as it will hijack our mind, ruin our relationships, destroy our family, and some extreme cases such stealing or killing as well . At times jealousy becomes lethal, as do domestic fights, and ends up killing others or themselves.
    To avoid jealousy we should accept and begin to appreciate who and what we are. Always rejoice to others and take them as an inspiration example. We should think less about ourselves, and more about others. Learning Dharma , practicing Dharma and putting into action , our jealousy will disappear. It’s the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    What a wonderful way going on a holy pilgrimage, and serving a Great Lama. Khensur Rinpoche who is a good friend of our Lama for 27 years. Rinpoche had known Khensur Rinpoche since Rinpoche time in India. Khensur Rinpoche had spent his whole life living in the monastic community teaching. Kensur Rinpoche had established Shar Gaden Monastery where the practice of Dorje Shugden and lineage is protected and preserved.
    Looking at all the pictures tells us a thousand words, how the team lead by Su Ming and team serving a Great Lama Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal. Such as taking them to see the doctor for medical check-up having all the necessary tests done, to see the dentist as well as checking their eyes and so forth . Well done Su Ming and team.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which will inspire us to go all the up serving monks.
    In a way to show , gratitude to them how we appreciate their present .

    Great and clear explanation for us to understand as well as to increase our knowledge of why bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our lives. Big statues have been always been regarded as big blessings for the area around it and also the sentient beings that live around that area.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat have many holy outdoor statue to create cause for people come to pilgrimage, embucirculate around the statue will help those have heavy body karma.Thank you very much for this article.

    Many countries around the world have looking and working with China. They realised being friendly with China is a wise choice for the benefits for the growth of their country. China has become world largest economy country. For Tibet befriending China in long term will benefits both countries. Time had changed with Tibet having workshops with the Chinese is a good sign improving their relationship after all these years . People have their right and freedom to choose what they practice. Practicing Dorje Shugden is nothing to do with China. Every one of us have the right and freedom to choose what we want to practice. HH Dalai Lama is looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be happen if the Tibetan leadership, letting go of the past and have more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government in future. And solving all the political problems and lifting Dorje Shugden’s ban once for all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    It is heart breaking, reading this article again, what Pastor Jean Ai had gone through and experience. Yet with strong determination all those abuses and attack by people whom she do not know, she did continue with her practice. Could not imagine how ungrateful the Tibetan Leadership treated the sponsor. Without the funds, sponsorship, monasteries and Dharma institutions would not able to survive for sure. Kechara organisation, and many others kind sponsors had sponsored millions to the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries of India. Not only that sponsoring of monk robes, books , statues , painting and jewelleries to name a few. Even changing the flooring of the monastery as well. Can imagine those sponsors go all the way to send them all those stuffs. And have raised so much sponsorship for them and had donated yearly in fact or when they asked for. And now none of them are allowed to go to the monasteries any more . All because they had practised Dorje Shugden’s practice. Countless other lamas and Shugden practitioners had raised funds for the monasteries too and they too were not allowed to have connection with. Sad ….there is no religious freedom at all. By now after decades , I do hope the Tibetan Leadership will lift the ban on Dorje Shugden for a better peaceful communities. May more read this post for a better understanding of what happening in the Tibetan Leadership and those in exile living in India.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up for the Tibetan people and for those Dorje Shugden practitioners .

    Different people have different reasons for wanting to become ordained. Sometimes I do wonder if unless the reasons are right, one should not get ordained but on the other hand I think maybe one should take the leap of faith even if the reasons are not entire “correct”.

    Modern people becoming ordained is tougher than in Buddha’s time, there are much inner and outer battle they need to overcome. May those who have the thought arise to be ordained, have more determination to make it happen. Thank you very much,for sharing this mind-changing article with all of us.

    With their expertise a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, coming together to explore knowledge of cold energy . Li Kim and team going to haunted houses to experiment the energy. The haunted house they went looks scary. Joining them is also a Taoist master, finally concluded the presence of supernatural beings, as their findings found that the energy are dark and cold. As the unseen beings do no harm, they decided to do Taoist prayers and combined healing of sound, energy before leaving the area. I do believe those unseen beings do exist. Glad to learn that sound can heal the environment and souls. . Sound wonderful .
    Thank you, Li Kim and team for this sharing.this knowledge.

    In Dharma, we learned that everything is impermanent, good thing will never last forever, that’s why we should not be attached to it as when it was gone, we will suffer tremendously, and a good news is, bad things never lasts.
    Life is a journey filled with opportunities, hardships, heartaches and its test for our courage. There is always a reason of our existence in this life.Thank you very much for this good article.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets. I believe that everything happens for a reason ,and there is a reason behind everything. That’s why Rinpoche asked to think carefully and consider certain things. Due to Rinpoche’s clairvoyance, Rinpoche knew the consequent. Rinpoche wanted us to learn to be responsible for our decisions that is beneficial to all and not jumping into anything blindly. And that is how I pray to what I want to come to be published.
    Glad to know some knowledge of Mount Shasta which I have not heard before being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing with important explanations, some knowledge to learn and guidelines for us.

    It won’t be supress Rinpoche felt more Indian as Rinpoche have been staying in India long enough. His early life spent in the monastery in India, serving his teachers and the monastic community, has taught Rinpoche cooking more Indian foods than western foods. Even all these years in Malaysia, Rinpoche preferred Indian cuisine which is rich in spices and masala such as dhal, paneer tikka, aloo mattar and paneer butter masala. Rinpoche will go all the way his students to serve Indian food to visiting Sangha so they would get a taste of home. Glad to know more of Rinpoche through this article. With Rinpoche explanation of how he felt and inherent in the Indian tradition culture, traditional spiritual practice and devotion to a spiritual teacher. All these points that Rinpoche was more Indian as what Rinpoche felt and having a strong connection with it.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story.

  • 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
