Portuguese boy with strong imprints

Jun 8, 2013 | Views: 2,272

 

A student of mine shared with me an article on Huffington Post. It was an article based on a video of a very young boy named Luiz Antonio. In the video, his mother gave him his dinner of rice, potatoes and octopus tentacles. Instead of eating it immediately, he questioned his mom on the source of the octopus tentacles… After going back and forth with his mother, he finally came to the conclusion that all animals are animals… and animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care of!

So… when we eat animals they die!“, says Luiz “Why do they die? I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up… These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!” This is coming from a very young boy! Amazing! 

What an inspiring video… His parents must have brought him very up well. Children like these will grow up to be very nice and compassionate people. They won’t just follow the crowd, but think for themselves. A kid with a powerful imprint from a previous life.

Luiz Antonio, Adorable Child, Sums Up Moral Argument For Being Vegetarian As Only A Kid Can (VIDEO)

Unlike most children his age, Luiz Antonio wants to eat his vegetables. It’s the other stuff that apparently gives him second thoughts.

As evidence, YouTube user Flavia Cavalcanti has an adorable video, originally uploaded in Portuguese, of little Luiz struggling to comprehend the origins of his meal. Potato? Easy enough. Rice? Sure. Octopus gnocchi? Fat chance.

In a recently uploaded version with English subtitles, Luiz dances around the subject a bit, asking simple questions trying to grasp how, exactly, the “legs” of an octopus ended up on his plate; more importantly, he wonders, what happened to the rest of the octopus?

“Is his head still in the sea?” Luiz asks his mom, who responds, “It’s at the fish market.”

“The man chopped it?” Luiz asks. His mom then informs him that all animals we eat, even chickens, are chopped up, prompting the sharp realization, “No! Those are animals!”

“So… when we eat animals they die!” a wide-eyed Luiz acknowledges. “Why do they die? I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up… These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!”

After that epiphany, Luiz realizes his mom has been touched by his compassion.

“Why are you crying?” he asks.

“I’m not crying,” his mother responds. “I’m just touched by you.”

“I’m doing something beautiful?” Luiz wonders aloud, prompting his mom to direct him back to the plate, “Eat! No need to eat the octopus, all right?”

    Inspiring video of a Portuguese boy with strong imprints. His dinner plate was served with rice, potatoes and octopus tentacles. After some questioning he told his mother that animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care of. This surprised his mother as her young son understands about the killings of animals. He don’t want to hurt animals , he knew the pain and sufferings of animals been killed . That’s wonderful , it’s a good beginning for a young boy to have compassion for animals at such a young age.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  2. nicholas on Oct 20, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    It’s really unusual for a kid to talk like that. Luiz definitely had some imprint on being kind to animals or even a vegetarian in his previous lives. It will really give a shock for a kid to feel the animals but it is a good shock. What he ask and said is what most of the adults would not want to think or face. Really rejoice for Luiz to have such realization at this very young age.

  3. Lin Mun on Oct 21, 2018 at 11:10 pm

    This young boy is not only cute but has a very kind heart. At such a young age he knows that killing animals bring pain to them and do not want to eat meat. A very compassionate boy.

  4. samfoonheei on Aug 17, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    This Portuguese young boy has a very beautiful heart indeed.At such a young age he know animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care. Not all children at his age would thought and said such things.Hope this beautiful article will inspired us…..
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

  5. beatrix ooi on Mar 19, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    Luiz could be someone in his past life, its very ‘unusual’ for a kid at his age to argue and ask questions on the source of his food, most shockingly he put himself into the octopus’s position and seemed to understand that animals have feelings too. It sure is not a small thing for a boy to think, and talk like that.

  6. Edward Ooi on Jan 5, 2014 at 12:03 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I think think Antonio’s previous life or many lifetimes ago was a caring person who fights for animals rights if not, he wouldn’t have a thought like this because he is just a boy about 5 years old.

  7. Lucas Roth on Dec 26, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    i love this kid! he truly has his mind in the right place, i hate it when people eat animals, they have lives too! i love animals and i really think they should have rights! please become vegetarian, thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  8. Ck siah on Dec 18, 2013 at 11:33 am

    谢谢仁波切的分享。密传一向来都相信转世,这小朋友有很强的慈悲印记,真是他前世累积的功德和福报。我还是强调那句话,冥冥中有注定。我们今天可以皈依于仁波切门下。其实我们前世都已经认识了。祈愿仁波切长驻在世,常转法轮。

  9. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 24, 2013 at 1:13 am

    When I first see this boy on Facebook, I was inspired by his pure love for animals. He may be young and innocent but he is wise and being a true human that doesn’t want to create harm to other animals. He is such a sweet boy. I was moved when he said :”These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!” Such wise words from him. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. Namtse!

  10. jerry_sito on Sep 26, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    能在那么小就有如此的慈悲与大爱的心,我想这小朋友一定是在上一世,一定是做了大量有关于慈悲与大爱的工作,而留下了如此强烈的印记,造就了这一辈子并还是小孩就已经让那慈爱的种子欣欣发芽 (无限随喜)

    最感动我的部分是,他那么小,就能够感动到他的母亲,感动了许多的人,那么小就开始了把爱,关怀动物的生命的这一个伟大资讯,渲染在我们每一人的心中

    祈愿我们都能够做到这样,同样的把这资讯与大爱慈悲的佛法,不断的与所有的人分享,利益与帮助一切众生,好使我们也能够种下那深深动容的印记 :)

  11. Tong sun sun on Sep 11, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    看了这段影片后真觉惭愧,那么小的小孩都知道持素爱护动物。想到自己常常忍不住欲望,让欲望战胜了理智!心里怪不好意思!我要加油啰!

  12. Edern Tan on Jul 23, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    It is so rare to have a kid a this young age to say no to meat and only eats vegetables. Imagine eveyone in this world is like him there would be peace, lesser extinction everyday and the pain from the animals will be all gone.

  13. Wah Ying on Jul 16, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    The video teaches me:

    1. Children actually can teach adults/parents lessons of life, what we adult need is just keep our ego low, do not think children know less than us or even they must listen without questioning from us. Have to admit, this needs practice, and remind yourself everyday. When we can learn and listen to a kid, we can learn from many, and learn much faster and much more.

    2. I was so impressed with the kid’s strong imprint and reasoning and arguing power. I believe kid has more or less the latter, and it might “erased” by parents/adults in the process. Treasure this before we lose it, for our kid to be a happy and conscious kid.

    3. With his strong imprint, he creates less negative karma by not harming others since such young age and can be a very powerful lesson for many around him and around the world.

    Thank you Luiz Antonio!

  14. Albert Ratchaga on Jul 12, 2013 at 9:21 am

    Such beautiful heart from a 4 year old kid, as I know normally kid are very demanding, always wanted everything to go their ways, but this boy is so different, he loves animal so much and don’t want to see them dying, he wanted to see them alive and running freely, hence, he does not want to eat meat. how beautiful with his mind and action, even the mother was touched by him. I would believe this may be due to his strong imprint in his past life, an animal lover, hehe.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 10, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    This is a very uncommon occurrence for a kid to have compassion for what he has been brought up as food. I do think this boy is very special, to have concern for animals, perhaps he spent many lifetimes saving, caring and helping animals. In our time children are desensitised from feeling for the animals. As all the items they eat come in fillets, chunks, parts, cans and so forth. So much so the kids in Singapore did not even know how a chicken looked like. I believe if more kids actually knew where their food was coming from they will not be so easy to just eat meat indiscriminately. If children had to kill their own animals to eat I doubt many would want to keep to such a diet.

  16. Sharon Saw on Jul 4, 2013 at 12:12 am

    This is an amazing story. it reminded me of my friend who was very upset that her son didn’t want to eat meat when he was younger.. i was horrified when she told me happily, “but thank god he now eats a bit” and that they had been trying very hard to get him to eat meat. I guess it is because people really don’t know better and it is the social norm to eat meat and to see meat as a necessary part of our diet. It is only when more awareness is raised regarding the lack of necessity for meat in our diet and that we need to learn more about compassionate eating that we can change society’s view.

  17. shelly tai on Jun 30, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Shelly tai on 30 June at 830pm
    Wow! What a special kid such a young age already so compassion is such a shame for an adult who cant even not eating meat for a day. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this amazing story with us.

  18. Thiago Albquerque on Jun 26, 2013 at 8:13 am

    By the accent he surely is brazilian! I’m brazilian myself.

  19. Jace Chong on Jun 25, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    Nowadays especially city area, the kids will draw an image of chicken drumstick when you ask them to draw chicken. They didn’t know chicken meal came from something with lives, and it involves killing when we demand for meat…

    Luiz is a good boy wanting to know where the food come from, after he knew it, he refuses to create the cause for animal to die and killing.

    This is so touching that even adults like us, many just demand meat to fill their desire for taste, how sad is that?

    Let’s learn a lesson from Luiz: “These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!”

  20. Jay Jae on Jun 22, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    He may be young, he may seem to be talking silly, he might also seem childish to you but what he has to say echoes a thousand years!

    It is more than evident that reincarnation exists and when a person with strong positive imprints return, most likely they bring with them the virtues they used to work on back then. Like this kid, it is evident that he has been a vegetarian in a different time before this and can explain with great logic why vegetarianism is good and cruelty to animals is otherwise bad.

    with proper guidance n nurturing, this boy can reach his fullest potential in order to ripen that potential, the parents must encourage them on the right way. Hence, in the monasteries, young reincarnated Lamas are brought back to the monasteries at a very early age in order to familiarize themselves with what their predecessors used to do.

  21. Lucas Roth on Jun 21, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    i am happy that this boy can say this because how as a young boy he can already see that animals are alive too and it is bad to eat them. i hope this boy grows up to be very nice man and i hope he saves animals in the future too.

  22. Jutika Lam on Jun 20, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This boy reallly does have strong imprints!

    Just seeing the video I have been so touched to see such a young boy come out with so much logic and common sense on why we should stop killing and eating meat.

    Not only does this video promote vegetarianism but is also another video of proof that reincarnation exists.

    I love the way he quoted this “So… when we eat animals they die!” a wide-eyed Luiz acknowledges. “Why do they die? I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up… These animals — you gotta take care of them… and not eat them!”

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video

    Love
    Jutika Lam

  23. Julien Roth on Jun 20, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    Wow, this coming from a boy of such young age is amazing! I would have never known for anyone to day this. I can say that every single thing that this boy had said to his mother was true. Animals do not deserve to die. And my favourite thing that he had said was “I like that they stay standing up.” I found that one line just so cool, and deep for a young boy to say.

  24. uncle eddie on Jun 20, 2013 at 11:17 am

    What Rinpoche said reminded me of a certain peom witten by George Bernard Shaw, some words of which I can still vividly remember:- “Quote: We are the living graves of murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites, We never pause to wonder at our feasts, If animals like men could possibly have rights. How can we hope in this world to attain the peace we say we are so anxious for, we pray for it “o’er Hetacomba of slain” To God while outraging the mortal Law, Thus cruelty begets the offspring – War! Unquote”.

  25. Karen Chong on Jun 19, 2013 at 2:40 am

    Every action we perform leaves an imprint on the mental consciousness, and these imprints are to be brought forward to the next rebirth. Obviously this little intelligent boy is someone special who is not easy to be influenced. From his conversation with the mom, he is so stern that eating animals is not virtuous and refused to eat at all. His imprint of being either a vegetarian or being someone very compassionate and kind is so strong that he still practicing it and the delusions of “eating meat is good” cannot fool him.

  26. sweekeong on Jun 15, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    This kid has a very beautiful mind filled with compassion and wisdom. You can see him paused and think about the idea of eating animals with very deep and penetrative thought. Then he asked very direct question to probe the motive behind eating animals. He is not hesitant in expressing his wished, without any fear, and gave his reasons. Indeed he showed us a very good example of what you take in your meal do affect you and the people around. As parents his mum respected his wishes and doesn’t pressure him into eating the octopus.

  27. Thierry on Jun 15, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    This kid is teaching his mother, how much care he has! He is teaching his mother and he is caring about that poor animal that is in his plate…. He will turn his mother and the whole family vegetarian, how could they not grow a compassionate heart with such a passionate compassionate boy in the family…

  28. Felix Kong on Jun 15, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing nice story. Proud of this kid Luiz , just a 3 year old kid and prefer to be vegetarian rather than eat meat . Really strong imprint from previous life, Love and care to animals , very good become vegetarian since young.

  29. AdelineTan on Jun 15, 2013 at 3:09 am

    Luiz is not an ordinary kid, at such a tender age, he could tell his mom all animals are not to be eaten and should take care of them. His mother cried because she was so touched by her son’s compassion and love for the animals, hope that he can inspire his family and the people out there to become vegetarian if you are not one yet.

  30. pavara on Jun 14, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Seeing such a small kid with such strong imprints is so touching.
    Just like what Luiz says he like that animals stay standing up.
    Animals are not born to be killed and to be put on to our plate.
    Its really amazing that such a small kid has such strong imprint to cause the family to stop eating meat.
    This kid really put the parent to amazement.

  31. Jessica Yap on Jun 14, 2013 at 9:26 am

    Such strong imprints in this young boy Luiz. Sometimes a child sees things differently from us adults..it’s just as simple as what he says. When we eat any meat, the animals has to die in order to satisfy our taste buds. There are no two ways about. Don’t kid yourself people.. 🙁

    Thank you Luiz, for reinforcing my vegetarian choice. You’re awesome.. You put us adults to shame..

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche.

  32. beatrix ooi on Jun 12, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Luiz is such a cutie pie, so young yet so intelligent! I’m touched by him, he’s just a little kid but the things he said make sense! Although this is just a short video, but it speaks louder than words. I’m happy for him, he will grow up to become a wonderful human being.
    Thank You for sharing Ripoche.

  33. HelenaC on Jun 12, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I am amaze that this little kid has such a good heart and compassionate! I find that sometime kids can be our teacher and they can be very inspiring because of their pure heart and the questions they asked sometimes make the adults think, answered and realised!! Incredible kid 🙂

  34. Ashlee on Jun 12, 2013 at 8:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche, this video is so touching coming from a young kid who speaks from his heart about not eating animals but caring for animals. It reminds me so much of my son, Xander. He has always been inclined towards vegetarianism from young. When he was a year old, he refuses to eat the fish or meat porridge and would spit it out so he just ate Gerber baby food and drank milk. When he was a few years old, he refuses to come sit around us when we were having dinner as he thinks our food is very smelly. Up until now he still thinks its smelly. So he literally live on drinking milk, eating bread and biscuits when other kids of his age would jump at the chance of having McDonald’s burger or nuggets. Believe me, we have tried so many times to coax him into trying McDonalds (before Alex & I turned vegetarian) and he would only eat the fries and pancakes. Only lately he has opened up to eat vegetable porridge, vegetarian macaroni, vegy pizza. We used to think he’s such a challenging child for being so picky in his food. Now we truly believe that he has a very strong vegetarian imprint from previous life and that he is definitely does not have the desire to eat meat at all. My daughter also once told me that animals are our friends and hence we should not be eating them and i find it very profound coming from a child. We are now embracing vegetarianism and trying to encourage our friends and family to do so too.

  35. Sean Wang on Jun 11, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    Thanks for sharing this story Rinpoche! It is amazing how a young child like Luiz can have such a high intelligence and compassion for animals. It is extremely rare for a child to do this. He is very smart and wise for his age and I completely agree with his thoughts. Animals are meant to be like us,born not to be eaten but to live.

  36. jimmy tan on Jun 11, 2013 at 11:06 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for Sharing with us this great live story.Luiz Antonio is amazing .In this age he choose to be vegetarian and not meat.This is naturally and not ask by his parents.He have a such good quality for me to learn.

  37. Han on Jun 11, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video, very direct , logic and heart touching. I can imagine the mum cried at that moment, to have such a caring and compassionate kid.

    Like what Beng Kooi said “Sometimes kids really put us adults to shame.” May this video inspired many more parents to nurture their kids to be vegetarian, may many more non vegetarians be inspired by Luiz.

  38. Datuk May on Jun 10, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Luiz shows us how contaminated we adults have become and it is time for us to learn from children’s purity and not try to influence them into our samsaric ways of living in self indulgence and pure horrid selfishness.

    Luiz pure logic of not having animals to die by not eating them but caring for them is bodhichitta in its best simple yet profound manner of life and practice.

    Perfect illustration of the pure unselfish mind.

  39. William on Jun 10, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    Definitely that there are previous imprints that made this kid not to eat animals. And he could think logically on why animals should not be eaten. He is so cute that even his mother could not win the conversation. Good on him!

    Another proof that reincarnation exist.

  40. Patsy on Jun 10, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Most children his age will not eat vegetable yet Luiz Antonio is not ordinary child. It must be from past life imprints that he prefers not eating meat/animals.

    “So.. when we eat animals they die!…I don’t like that they die. These animals….you gotta take care of them …and not eat them”.

    So much logic from such young boy. Let us learn from him and be kind to animals. Cut down on meat or better still be a vegetarian.

  41. Lim Han Nee on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    Little Luiz amazes his mother and us, when he pauses over the sight of legs of an Octopus on his dinner plate.’What happened to the rest of his body?” he asks.He also makes statements like: “So.. when we eat animals they die!…I don’t like that they die. These animals….you gotta take care of them …and not eat them”.

    This little boy can ask questions and make statements that show deep care for animals.He doesn’t like that they die, when human beings cut them up. he thinks of the different body parts that used to belong to on animal, who was alive and kicking and happy, like he is now.

    For a young boy to think so deeply, it is true that it must have been previous life’s imprints.This is truly very touching. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story with us.

    We should strive to create deep positive imprints of love and care in our mind-stream, for it to open up later or in future lives.

  42. Paul Yap on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    This kid is so special, towards the end of this video, i think his mum was convinced and let small little Luiz to have vegetarian, she might join little Luiz becoming vegetarian as well…

  43. Cynthia Ng on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    小孩永远是最真诚和天真无邪,内在存在着的是没有被污染的灵魂。Luiz确实是不平凡的小孩,在他的年龄层想的不是吃喝玩乐,想的是为何人类对这些动物那么的残忍,他们是不应该被伤害的,小小的心灵但是却有着如此大的慈悲心,Luiz的举动是来之于强烈的前世印记。

    Luiz的真诚言语真的值得让人深思,我们更加要对所有的众生更加有慈悲心以及怜爱。

  44. Jill Yam on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    How inspiring for a young boy to be telling his mother about it instead of the other way round. Rejoice for the mother too.

  45. MartinC on Jun 10, 2013 at 5:10 am

    What a sweet and wonderful exchange between Luiz and his mom. I was moved when the little boy said that he doesn’t like it when they die and wants animals to be standing up, meaning alive. The first thing that is amazing is how such a young person arrived at that conclusion because it cannot be by the influence of his parents who are clearly meat eaters. So it must be something imprinted in him from his previous lives and that struck me as being incredibly wonderful that the compassion that was in him from his past lives are “carried forward” into this life. Doesn’t that proof that the things we develop in our mind-stream, the wisdom and compassion that we cultivate, do not go to waste.

    Compassion comes so clearly to Luiz but what is also amazing is how he processes information-asking questions and joining the dots and very quickly come up with a conclusion that so many educated adults fail to. When we eat meat, we cause animals to die and that is not right.

    I am also very impressed with Luiz’s mother who was quick to appreciate her son’s kindness and does not force him to eat what he clearly does not want to – not because he doesn’t like it, but because he knows its not right. She cries towards the end of the video being very moved by her son. Compassion is contagious and in such a beautiful way.

    I hope this video goes viral for it carries such a good message.

  46. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Jun 9, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    It was touching Luiz have show kindness to animal in young age. How nice if everyone think like him.

  47. Cliff on Jun 9, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I love this kid! He’s so intelligent, at such a young age he already understands where the food on his plate comes from. It was such a beautiful moment for him and his mother, having touched her she must be so proud of her son to cry. I really enjoyed how he conversed with his mother, it seemed like he already knew where his food came from and just wanted to clarify with his mother. At the end his mother telling him to just eat the potato and rice was so funny. We were all thought when young to be caring, loving of others, human beings and animals yet it was contradictory for us to have meat on our dinner plates. I really hope this video would spread more awareness of being a vegetarian. Thank you for sharing this video Rinpoche.

  48. Low KHJB on Jun 9, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.The young boy is very intelligent for his age.He have a strong sense of compassion and reasoning which strike a deep impression on anyone who is near him.He even made his mother cry,so touching.In fact it made my eyes swell up in tears too.
    Rejoice for him…

  49. edward ooi on Jun 9, 2013 at 2:22 am

    Dear Rinpoche,It’s so wonderful. I think this little Luiz Antonio was a vegetarian or maybe a vegan in his previous life. Many people enjoys eating meat but they say ‘I love Animals’ and at the same time they didn’t know that they are creating sufferings to animals. If you say you love animals then start being a vegetarian and stop doing things that will harm animals. Do you like to see animals getting slaughtered? I hope everyone will start learning from this little boy.

  50. Gim Lee on Jun 9, 2013 at 1:56 am

    It is a simple logic that even a three-year old Luiz can figure it out… but we adults tend to justify wrong doings, with excuses, for the sake of our own attachment.

    Luiz is definitely a special boy with a golden heart… his imprints from past lives are very strong. He will grow up to be a good man; kind and compassionate 🙂

  51. David Lai on Jun 8, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Indeed, this kid is special. This is not intelligence because I know many incredible people who are highly intelligent but choose to ignore the plight of animals. Therefore, I can tell that it is not intelligence but a meritorious mind, a mind that chooses to face facts and act upon it. There are plenty of intellectuals with plenty of knowledge but are unable to act on the knowledge they have. Worse still, there are plenty of people who know a lot of Dharma but do not practice. What’s amazing about this is the fact that this boy is so young and he can think in such a sublime way. Good boy and I hope he continues in this way…

  52. Tenzin llhamo on Jun 8, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and inspiring post! How smart is young Luiz! Such strong imprints and it is shown at such a young age. Many of us just take it for granted as we like how the meat taste. And the worse part is when we find different ways to cook it so that we can have more choices. And charged expensive for exquisite and special way of meat. We kill the animals because we want to taste their flesh. What is the difference with being a cannibal? Not eating meat doesn’t mean that we are fanatic or following blindly due to religion but to generate compassion for other beings, just like little Luiz.

  53. bengkooi on Jun 8, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Sometimes kids really put us adults to shame. Sometimes as we grow up, we become insensitised to death and suffering, or perhaps we allow society’s norms and our own preference to overrule our innate good nature. Kids have a fresh perspective and aren’t afraid to question what we all take for granted sometimes.

    Those who are already vegetarian, be inspired by Luiz. Those who are not, be more inspired…

    Incredible how a small kid like Luiz can think in such a way. One would think that he would prefer to eat everything on his plate except the greens, but he reacts the opposite, knowing that he would not want to eat animals as he would be the cause for their deaths.

  55. Soon Huat on Jun 8, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this story. It is not simple for a kid like him have this type of thought. Rejoice for him. I hope my kid will do that same thing too in near future. Antonio is right that animal is like us, human being, they are not born to be eaten.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Datuk May for sharing this article. Reading this post again , all I could say is disgusting to know what were said without further investigation and thoughts if its true. Since the banning of Dorje Shugden practice, many non-practitioners and practitioners had suffered abuse, slander, threats and discrimination by those anti Dorje Shugden practitioners. Sad….. Just because one dislike one’s religion , the other suffered. They even to that extend encouraging their people to attack Shugden practitioners. One such example where an 84-year-old monk of Trijang Ladrang was brutally attacked, allegedly just because he practices Dorje Shugden. Discriminate people base on their religion is definitely against religious freedom and democracy.
    Rinpoche have done so much to benefit so many people through his teachings ,advices and so forth. Yet those people out there still threatened Rinpoche without verify the truth.

    Thank you Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing. It is very easy for most of us to take things for granted. Many years back when technology was not so advance, everything has to be done manually that require great amount of time, patient and effort to gain knowledge. People those days has sacrificed a lot in order to preserve the dharma teaching. And today Rinpoche has made it easily accessible for us to obtain the knowledge from the ‘virtual temple’ with just a few clicks away plus it’s free. Indeed very grateful to Rinpoche for all the effort done in preserving and teaching dharma, and reaching to all the countries via the virtual world. A reminder to continue to practise dharma and appreciate all effort for spreading dharma.

    Despite all of the darkness, there is always a light and hope for us to walk through however far we will make it. Let the light of hope always enlighten our soul. We are all like ocean, spreading thousands of miles away and there is just one lighthouse, the only lighthouse. We are the fortunate ones who get to see it. The light will always conquer the darkness. Seeing the light in the darkness is after we stepped outside our comfort zone that we begin to change, grow, and transforming.
    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us the way.

    The practice of sati was at its peak between the 15th and 18th centuries. Widows were forced burning alive or commit suicide after the death of their husband . Sati was a historical Hindu practice then, was banned as the practice of Sati is against human rights and revolting the feelings of human nature. Since then widows needs to be in a constant state of mourning once her husband dies, wearing in white .
    Many communities in India still shun widows and they are abandoned by their families due to superstition. It’s sad to know that those widows been treated in such a way.
    Thanks to one great humanist and social reformer of contemporary India….. Dr. Pathak who has worked to change social attitudes towards the widows . Dr. Pathak is known around the world for his wide ranging work in the sanitation field to improve public health, advance social progress, and improve human rights in India and other countries. He is also the founder of Sulabh International, an India-based social service organisation which works to promote human rights. He goes out his way to help these neglected women, trying to change the mindset, attitude and behaviour of the people towards those widows.
    Inspiring his accomplishments span the fields of sanitation technology, healthcare education for millions of people in the rural areas and slums in India.A prolific writer and speaker as well, Dr. Pathak has authored several books to date.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Vinnie and Beatrice for this sharing.

    Kyabje Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche is one of the most accomplished Tibetan Buddhist yogis of our time. Regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen yogis ,he lived in a simple dwelling without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practices what he preaches without compromise and as a result he is beloved and respected by people of all faiths. Spending a great deal most of his time practicing in caves . Thousands of people in the Himalayan region consider Rinpoche to be their root guru because through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. During his life Chatral Rinpoche was one of the most vocal opponents of meat eating in Tibetan Buddhism. He encouraged followers to go on vegetarian. For many years he had been buying fish in huge bulk from numerous fisheries and fish markets and released them into Diamond Harbour in Kolkota’s estuaries. He founded and restored many meditation retreat centers in Bhutan, India and Nepal as well as overseen the construction of several stupas. Inspiring indeed. He left a legacy that will undoubtedly live on for many generations.

    Beautiful story of how Choyang Dulzin Kuten Lama from a humble nomadic family,became an Oracle Lama. He had served Tibetan community in difficult times in Tibet and in refugee camps in India. He was well respected and illustrious oracle who took trance of Dorje Shugden. Choyang Duldzin Kuten Lama had contributed in various ways when the Tibetan community was trying to re-establish itself in India. It was Choyang Duldzin Kuten Lama who invoked Dharmapala Dorje Shugden to ask for safe directions in H H the 14th Dalai Lama’s escape during the Chinese invasion at that time. Interesting read . His life story is one positive and inspiring example of compassion that benefit many and to those having special relationships with Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and interesting read.

    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was a Tibetan-Italian lama of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, well respected Lama known to be a powerful healer who had saved countless lives. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was also renowned for his full accomplishment of the Medicine Buddha practice. The blessed healing pills and waters created by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche are highly sought. He had travelled tremendously giving teachings and healing thousands of people. Thousands of people will come from far and near to receive his blessings. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was a Tantric master of the Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja, Heruka and Vajrayogini Tantras, known for his mastery of the Kalachakra Tantras. The blessed healing pills and waters created by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche are highly sought after for healing illnesses.
    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche’s kindness, compassion and continuous effort to promote the growth of the Buddhadharma were well respected by many even to this day. For many decades Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has worked tirelessly, promoting world peace , helping the underprivileged, and so forth.
    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the lamas who first recognised Tsem Rinpoche as a tulku . Tsem Rinpoche since then had always respected Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche as one of his teacher. Tsem Rinpoche had sent students to Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche ’s centre in Albagnano, Italy with offerings such as books, gifts, other items, updating recent projects of Kechara as well. Rejoice to those went there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with beautiful pictures .

    Interesting article. In the old days there were hundreds of oracles that served as mediums for different spirits. …such as the Nechung Oracle and Dorje Shugden . They were consulted on all important occasions. Oracle tradition goes back to the time of the Fifth Dalai Lama. During important events the Oracle would appear in religious ceremonies in Lhasa. We are blessed watching these rare videos featuring Oracles. Oracles have played, and will continue to play, an important part in religion, doctrine, and prophecy. The phenomenon of oracles still remains till today. The Oracle tradition has traces in pre-Buddhist traditions of shamanism and exorcism. The practice is mysterious, most of its aspects were kept secret until the recent years. When visiting the temple, one will see a different side of Tibetan religion and culture. Oracles serve as a guide for Tibetans in political decisions, predictions about natural forces, and so forth. Their answers are taken seriously by Tibetans and high-standing political and religious individuals.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this interesting post.

    Beautiful and unusual Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple in Bagan,Myanmar. Amazing place and striking Buddhist complex of stupas, shrines and monasteries built on top of a tall volcanic plug. This Buddhist Monastery is built on a tall volcanic plug and is one of a tourist and pilgrimage site in the vicinity of nearby Mount Popa. The Buddhist monastery lies magnificently on top of an extinct volcano plug which rises up to a height of 1518 meters. To reach the monastery, there is a fleet of steps of 777 steps to reach the summit and will encounter some monkeys along the way too. From the top, one can enjoy a panoramic view of the ancient city of Bagan and the majestic Mount Popa, the volcano responsible for the formation of Taung Kalat.
    I have not been to there yet, would to visit such a magnificent panorama which extends across the plains to the Rakhine hills, rising from the dust haze on the horizon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Beautiful thangka of Buddha Akshobhya, Manjushri, Manjushri Nagarakshasa and Dorje Shugden. Buddha Akshobhya is one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas, who represents consciousness. The ferocious Manjushri Nagarakshasa is one of the most fearsome looking Buddhas within the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Together as depicted in this beautiful thangka tells us thousand words……is indeed powerful and beautiful to have in our house.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this thangka with explanations.

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

    3 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
