Portuguese boy with strong imprints

Jun 8, 2013 | Views: 2,282

 

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…

  54. Girlie OOI on Jun 8, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    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.

    Chogyam Trungpa was a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He was recognized for playing a pivotal role in the transmission of genuine Buddhadharma to the West. Simple and meaningful advice by Chogyam Trungpa. Nothing is easy and no short cut to learning Dharma. We have to endure hardship to learn something like Dharma or what ever so. Never give up once we decided to learn and practice. We must face the problems or rather obstacles along the way, there is always a way to over come it with courage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this meaningful quotes simple yet profound. Stop blaming other for our problems or mistakes. Accept it and try solving it instead blaming it . Take responsibility of whatever the choice and decision we have make. Take charge of our own attitude instead blaming others. We have to look within ourselves to move forward.

    Buton Rinchen Drup, 11th Abbot of Shalu Monastery, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. Buton Rinchen Drub is considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers . Shalu Monastery became one of the most renowned and important monastery in Tibet . He had influenced the Gelug and Sakya traditions as well, having helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. He left a legacy worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. That’s is inspiring. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, till to this day. Even after retiring he continued composing a number volumes of commentaries and he wrote the famous book, the “History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. Many Tibetan scholars still utilize his work in their studies which is still continuing to this day, and cannot be underestimated. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a Great Lama.

    Thank you Dr Matthew William King great work done on the research on Dorje Shugden . His research shows that Dorje Shugden had played a central role in both monastic and political life in Mongolia. Zaya Pandita, an accomplished translator, linguist and scholar, Lobsang Tamdin, a prolific author and Mongolian lamas had preserved the tradition of Dorje Shugden through ways as such scholarship and study, and also via active propitiation. Mongolia’s own lamas did independently promoting and encouraging the practice centuries ago. Yet there is still some who claimed Dorje Shugden is a evil spirit. Even though there is clear evidence ,Mongolia’s long history of reliance on this enlightened Protector. Zaya Pandita and Lobsang Tamdin were masters of sutra, tantric adepts, and the peers and equals of Tibetan lamas of their time, they cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. Interesting read article on The Mongol Invention of the Dorjé Shukden and Trülku Drakpa Gyeltsen Literary Corpus (1913-1919) by Dr Matthew William King.
    Thank you with folded hands Zava Damdin Rinpoche for preserving the works for generations to come.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing for more and more people to understand better.

    We are very blessed for being able to learn Buddhism . Learning Dharma and putting into actions remind us of the Buddha’s teachings. The Dharma reveals truths as taught by the Buddha. It also gives us a way to live life that transform our mind and leading us towards achieving enlightenment. Having the opportunity to learn the Buddha’s teachings and cultivate ourselves is indeed very precious. We have to sincerely and consistently practice nor matter what happens and be true to ourselves. The efficaciousness of this all depends on our faith, loyalty and devotion to our Guru. Dharma is beautiful I do agree with it as explained by Rinpoche. Dharma is the moral law combined with spiritual discipline that guides one’s life. And is extremely approachable by everyone and has since changed my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    One of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. The temple of the Choijin Lama is an important example of Chinese-style religious architecture. It is one of the few surviving historic Buddhist buildings in Mongolia. Hidden among the tallest sky scappers this hidden gem is an architectural wonder. It was the home of Luvsan Haidav Choijin Lama, who is the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan. The State Oracle of Mongolia had a long historic connection with Dorje Shugden. Even took trance of 3 different deities , Nechung, Tsiu Marpo and Dorje Shugden. It is a temple with a lot of old, ancient artifacts as Choijin Lama would go into a trance. After been through historic changes it was reopened as a museum. The Choijin Lama Temple’s history is documented with many religious hardships and interesting happenings. Interesting read and detailed explanation for one to understand better . A must see place when travelling there .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing

    Breaking news the Tribune Journal published December 15, 2017 H H Dalai-lama planning to visit China. Since exile HH the Dalai Lama left Tibet in 1959, returning to China will be a wonderful reunion for many. This potential visit to China by HH the Dalai Lama might lead to those who left their homeland able to visit Tibet again. Millions of Tibetans in Tibet would definitely wish to see Dalai Lama again. The Dalai Lama would be too happy as great memories to see places as such his palace, relatives and so forth. If the return is successful all negative attacks on Dorje Shugden practitioners should cease immediately. There are indeed many benefits if Dalai Lama visit to China as it would clear the doubts of some. May Dalai Lama fondest wish come true soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this news

    This mandala offering is the symbolic offering of the prosperity of the whole universe. Mandala offering is a powerful method for accumulating extensive merit if we do it with proper visualization. Doing it this way we dedicate the merit from each offering for the sentient beings as it is performed. It is very effective for the mind. It is important to understand all about the offerings. Doing the mandala offering is a way of clearing out all these negative states of mind. The mandala offering purifies our attachment, the stinginess, the miserliness, the clinging mind. It enriches the mind with the positive potential from giving. We create a lot of positive potential or merit just by giving. The mandala offering is training us to develop the mind that takes delight and joy in making other people happy. In doing so, we create merit. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with explanations.

    Changkya Rolpai Dorje a Grand Lama of China, Imperial Art Consultant, a principal Tibetan Buddhist teacher in the Qing court. He is closely associate with Qianlong Emperor of China. This relationship proved extremely significant. He served as Qianlong’s main Buddhist teacher and adviser in matters related to Buddhism. Including art, literature, religious initiations and practices, and diplomacy. He was recognized as a reincarnation of the previous Changkya Lama. As a Buddhist administrator in Beijing, he played an important role in founding Yonghegong Temple , a monastic college for Mongol, Manchu, and Chinese monks. He was also instrumental in developing the systems of iconography, cataloguing, and inscribing that would prove so important to the Qianlong emperor’s projects in Buddhist art. Truly talented.

    Giuseppe Tucci was a scholar of oriental cultures, specializing in Tibet and the history of Buddhism. He is considered one of the founders of the academic field of Buddhist Studies. Tibetan painted scrolls, also known as thangkas came to Tibet from India. They
    are synonymous with Tibetan culture and religion.The tradition of thangka painting which is also known as scroll painting came to Tibet from India. It was largely influenced by the art form developed in Nepal. Tucci, highly literate in Sanskrit and Tibetan as well as fluent in many Himalayan languages, was the first western scholar to travel widely through the Tibet and India. Thangka served as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha. The scroll paintings are framed with colour stain ,an art form with unique features in Tibetan culture. Wow in one of the thangkas he even described the mythical kingdom related with the Kalachakra Tantra and its divine kings. What he did was truly amazing.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing explaining all about it.

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

Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families.

We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future.

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep.
