Rinpoche saving doggy at 3am on the highway | 凌晨3点的任务

By | Jun 22, 2013 | Views: 914

凌晨3点半,多数人还在睡觉,詹杜固仁波切却在高速公路上拯救受伤的动物 

Last night Tsem Rinpoche went for an outing with some of His students until past midnight, along way the back, Rinpoche would stop the enotourage of cars whenever he saw stray dogs in order to feed them. Rinpoche always carries along in the car boot a lot of dog food – dry food, wet canned food, milk, and the plates and bowls, so that whenever stray dogs were spotted, especially those that looked skinny and were seeen wandering around looking for food,  Rinpoche would ask His students to feed the dogs, and many times Rinpoche would watch to make sure that the dogs were eating well, only then would He moved on.

So as usual, a white and brown dog was spotted along the way, and upon further inspection, he only had three legs, and had a gaping wound at his back, Rinpoche was very concerned because that means the dog would have a tougher time looking for food in the wild and would suffer further, so after asking His students to feed the dog with a lot of dry and wet food and milk, Rinpoche had a discussion with His students on what to do and how to help the dog further.

It’s 3:30am in the early morning and Tsem Rinpoche was standing on a highway with a few of His students following the injured stray dog spotted along the highway, waiting for the tranquilizers and carrier to get here. Poor doggy only has three legs, and a gaping, festering hole in his back. Then, after five hours of running around, and six tranquilizer pills later, doggy is finally safely on his way to the vet! Look at how much pain he is in. Despite that, no crying from him and no struggling in his cage, and he didn’t puke on the winding driving down. 

May we be able to help all animals in pain and relieve them of their sufferings.

 

 


Update: 24 June 2013

Dear Rinpoche,

1. The vet has been cleaning Sonam’s wound for the past 2 days. It is a repetitive process because they have to see if any maggots are left after each cleaning, and to see how the wound progresses each time.

2. Today, there was no more sign of maggots, which is a good sign.

3. The vet will monitor the healing of the wound for the next 2 days and let us know how it is doing. The vet will also let us know approximately when Sonam can be discharged.

4. Pastor Susan is looking for a temporary home for Sonam who can take him in temporarily so he doesn’t have to be boarded at the vet. More space for Sonam and it will also be less cost.

Thank you
BK


Update: 24 July 2013

Dear Rinpoche
Sonam is doing well..havent growled at me lately. He is eating well and clean little fella. He will go into the crate when he dirty the floor.
Tq. Susan

 


Update: 9 August 2013

Having him to socialize with other dogs. He doesn’t play with them but having him to share space with them.

    Rinpoche’s compassion is not verbal but is walk the talk. Rinpoche always show us how to be compassionate all the way. Whenever we go out with Rinpoche, Rinpoche always on a lookout for many things that Rinpoche would able to help to relieve their suffering. Dogs are one of them and Rinpoche is very particular because of animals unable to speak to us their pain, suffering, like, dislike and etc. Especially for those stray that may not able to find food and stay hungry. Rinpoche will definitely feed them and if they are sick or injured Rinpoche will ask us to bring them for treatment. You can see Rinpoche’s compassion is unconditional and most of us witness this through our experience with Rinpoche.

  2. Lin Mun on Oct 28, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Rinpoche always show us to the way to care for all living beings including animals. Be ever ready to help no matter what time or what the circumstances is. And that is compassion. To be ready to serve for others. Thank you Rinpoche for your teaching.

  3. TekLee on Nov 2, 2016 at 12:41 am

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this article. Rinpoche always show us good example so that we as students will learn from him. We must have love for all beings in the world, no matter there are animals or human. This is truly the heart of a Bodhisattva. Many of us can only say it, action tells everything. Just read Pastor Jean Ai’s comment, it’s been three years, Rinpoche never stop rescuing and feeding stray dogs. Rinpoche’s love has no boundary, no limitation, no condition, true compassion. This is what we need to learn and develop.
    Actually, my wife and I start trying, we keep a bag of dog food in the car as start, wherever we see dogs or cats or small animals, especially those are locked in cage, we chant mantra an blow on them. I find that by doing this, dogs bark at us less. Last time I was very scared of stray dogs, coz they chased me and barked at me. Now, whenever I see stray dogs, I just stay calm and chant mantra and try to blow at them. If I have food with me, I will feed them, stray dogs don’t bark at me anymore. They can sense it.
    Thank you again Pastor Seng Piow for the article and Rinpoche for the unconditional love. We have a lot more to learn from here. _/\_

    When it comes to Rinpoche, feeding and taking care of dogs is not a one-off activity…I’m posting this in 2016, three years after this blog post was published and Rinpoche is still helping strays in this manner.

    Those around Rinpoche will know this well – stopping off by the side of the road to leave food for dogs, especially those who are pregnant or recently gave birth. They will have more mouths to feed and will also be weaker and more vulnerable, having more lives to take care of and having to produce milk. For this reason, Rinpoche will carry food in his car so we can stop whenever we have to, to feed hungry strays. It’s a simple, easy way that everyone can engage in to help other sentient beings with no agenda to receive anything in return.

    Poor Sonam. You are lucky to be treated by Rinpoche sonam dear. He will help you. Remember him.

  6. Wylfred Ng on Oct 29, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。 虽然大家都说慈悲心,不过多少人可以真正做到呢?
    仁波切就实实在在的让我们看到慈悲心到底是怎样的。

    希望众生都可以脱离苦海,无论是人类或者是动物。

  7. Ck siah on Oct 28, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    看了仁波切的分享,摸摸自己的良心,我可以做到吗?我可以像仁波切的那么慈悲吗?心里很挣扎又矛盾。我几时可以呢?我还要有多少年的修行才可以达到像仁波切的那么慈悲呢?
    目前我想不下去,但我会继续的跟从仁波切的教诲为佛法走上去。
    谢谢仁波切的分享。

  8. jerry_sito on Sep 27, 2013 at 10:51 am

    不管在任何时间,任何地点仁波切都会为所有六道众生生起怜悯知心,时时刻刻都活在佛法的生活里,以身作则的让我们知道执行佛法教育的重要

    莫因恶小而为之,莫因善小而不为,只是一个小动物,但它是一个生命,也许它在无数的其中一世是我们挚爱的亲人,或许它的无数世前对我们有恩或其他

    我们应该透过我们的爱心来帮助它们,并可以透过心咒或法会,祈愿它下辈子有好的转世,世间无常,说不定,下辈子我们与它们的角色对调呢,到时后也许因为我们曾经这辈子留下了帮助它们善因,下辈子轮到是他们来帮助我们

    感恩仁波切的教诲

    URGENT help needed. Sonam has been sterilized and boarded at the vet for 1 week now. He has recovered from the procedure. I will not be able to take him in anymore and high possibility I will need to release him back to where he was found.

    Sonam seemed fine with dogs but is barky. He barks at even the people who feeds him daily. Due to resource and space constraints, the noise will put the other dogs in jeopardy of complaints by neighbors.

    I am hoping someone will be able to foster or adopt and work with him before I have to decide to release him by end of this week.

    Please contact me at susan.lim108@gmail.com for any help you can provide.

    Compassion in action!

  11. Albert Ratchaga on Jul 23, 2013 at 9:08 am

    3am while everyone are sleeping comfortably in their bed, what’s Rinpoche doing out there? Why aren’t Rinpoche stay in his house? rest in his bed? why is Rinpoche still out there? Many people asked me why does Rinpoche always sleep so “early”? Well, this is the answer.

    Rinpoche always wanted to help the beings who are in suffering, he does not do it only when he’s convenient or when the situation is favourable to him, Rinpoche does it anytime and everytime. When a life is suffering, it will not wait until when you are free only they suffer, it will not wait till you woke up from the bed only they suffer, if to wait until we are ready to save them, it might be already too late.

    Rinpoche has great compassion to everyone especially dogs, because they can’t talk, they can’t protect themselves when they are down with sickness, there is no proper healing process they can take, so Rinpoche will always make sure the animals are well taken care of, even for they strays, Rinpoche always has lots of dog food in the car, so that he can feed them anywhere when he sees them. Even to the strays, Rinpoche will never let them be and pretend to see nothing. He will step out from his car and feed them, to make sure they have a full stomach. Rinpoche’s car always full of the smell of dog food, but he never mind about it, in fact, he loves it, because these dog food are to save lives.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 20, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    So many animals are saved by Tsem Rinpoche and Rinpoche is tireless in making animals are taken care off and healed . And for me the care does not stop there, what Rinpoche does for the animals and benefitting them goes way beyond just healing and feeding them I feel, so all animals helped by Lama are extremely fortunate.

  13. Bryan Ho on Jul 13, 2013 at 2:45 am

    To be very frank, I’m not an animal lover but because of Rinpoche’s kindness, and his love and care towards animals, I think becoming more warm toward animals.
    It was just another night that we are driving back to Kechara Forest Retreat, it was Rinpoche, Seng Piow and myself in the same car.
    Suddenly Rinpoche said: stop the car, that’s a hungry dog by the road side.
    I jumped down the car together with Jean Ai, Beng Koi and a few others who followed Rinpoche in cars at the back. When we are approaching this poor dog (Sonam) with dog foods that Rinpoche always carried around in his car, Sonam was standing up and trying to run away. It’s only den we realized he have only 3 legs.
    Rinpoche was extremely concern about him and Rinpoche was thinking how can we help him? Beng Koi and a few came out with an idea that we should bring Sonam to a vet and get treatment. We contacted Pastor Susan, who’s in charge of Kechara Animal Sanctuary, and she came immediately from KL to rescued Sonam.
    We spent at least 3-4hours and finally we got him into a cage and sent to doctor.
    By this act from Rinpoche, actually taught me that regardless who you are or what you are, everyone have right to be heal and happy. Rinpoche can scarified his own pleasure, time just to help someone, even an animal.
    When we approached Sonam and he ran away actually makes me realized some beings just have no karma to received. Even though we are doing this base on good intention for him to get well, but due to his bad karma, he actually run away from help.
    Many of us are the same, when sometimes something good happened to us, we actually run away from it, beacause of our bad karma, we couldn’t see the benefit.
    It was a great night and i learned a lot from it. Thanks Rinpoche again.

  14. Cliff on Jul 4, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    Wow, this dog is in such a bad state, its incredible though from what happen is that despite its injuries it doesn’t moan or struggle. I am really happy Rinpoche and others helped this dog when many of us would not have even taken notice, thank you for showing us what great compassion Rinpoche has and that animals too derave the kindness from us. I hope the dog finds a good home for some to take care.

  15. June Tang (KHJB) on Jun 29, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this inspiring post.
    Rinpoche is truly a compassionate Lama,he is always kind to whom ever around him.Rinpoche is always showing us kindness in action.May we all can follow this good qualities of Rinpoche to benefit more others.Hope the doggy can get well soon !

  16. graceleong on Jun 29, 2013 at 12:46 am

    How many of us will spontaneously stock up our car with dog food going around town looking for strays to feed ? It has never crossed my mind to do that! Melissa and I have just decided that we will from now on keep some dog food in our car cause it will come in handy! A very small change in our lifestyle but certainly very beneficial thing to do. Thank you Rinpoche for always showing us ways we can benefit others !!
    And dear Sonam , I pray for your speedy recovery ! You definitely did have lots of merits to have met Rinpoche !

  17. Leu Chong Hin -kH (JB) on Jun 28, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    To be compassion toward to other sentinel being is a choice. Rinpoches shown us how his really care and love to those animal are facing suffering and putting in action to reduce their suffering as much as possible. Thanks for Rinpoches teaching and shown us the practice how we can do more if we wanted to.

  18. anna on Jun 27, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    rinpoche you are soooooooooo nice

  19. Lim (KH JB) on Jun 27, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Thanks Seng Piow for sharing, we always sleep, online, watch DVD etc at 3.30am but Rinpoche and team saving a injure stray dog at this moment…

    Normally if we are driving at this hour, we always no much care about the situation beside us but Rinpoche due to his compassion to all sentient beings may saw the injured stray dog and save the dog.

    Rinpoche and team is the Real Example for us to generate more compassion towards all sentient beings…

    May the dog recover soon and able to find a adopter to take care of the dog…

  20. AdelineTan on Jun 26, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    Sonam in deed has such good merits to meet Rinpoche at such a critical time of his life, he does not have to suffer any longer once he is under the care of Rinpoche. May he will have swift and complete recovery from his injury and lots of love and care from the people around him.

  21. Joy on Jun 26, 2013 at 4:19 am

    I am glad we were there with Rinpoche when Rinpoche spotted this poor mumu now named Sonam by Rinpoche. Sonam means “merit”… it is awesome that this 3 legged wounded doggy had the good karma to receive help from Rinpoche and us… some dogs do not. Why I say “good karma” because from us rescuing him to be treated means there is a higher chance of Sonam living longer, healthier, happier life and Dharma imprinted in him although he may not comprehend it now.

    Sonam and many stray dogs also kinda remind me of the many different people who received help from Rinpoche or who could have received help from Rinpoche but ran away because they felt their comfort zones, attachments threatened. This is rather sad because it is like giving food and wanting to help a hungry stray who is scared due to ignorance. Now I understand the meaning of no karma to even receive good things… wonder what they have done to create such a karma.

  22. Adrian Cho on Jun 25, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    This is so touching, that Rinpoche always show much care and love to animals. It is so sad for this doggy was injured and Rinpoche saved this doggy from street. Hope this doggy recover soon and no need suffering of the pain.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  23. Edern Tan on Jun 25, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Deer Rinpoche, hope the dog is not feeling any pain when the vet is cleaning the wound for him and hope that he will find his temporary home for him to rest to speed up the healing speed. whenever I look at the picture of his wound i couldn’t imagine how pain was he at that state. Rinpoche can you explain to me why would living things suffer like that.

  24. HelenaC on Jun 25, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Its is so sad to see them suffering without help in the middle of nowhere. But Sonam is very lucky and fortunate to meet Rinpoche and the fellow students the night. I am sure with Rinpoche’s blessing Sonam will be recover soon.
    By staying up at 3am to help a doggie is truly shows compassionate and care to other beings. It’s really touched. I am gonna put some dog food in my car too like Rinpoche 🙂 Thank you for the wonderful post and help for Sonam.

  25. MartinC on Jun 25, 2013 at 5:59 am

    There are quite a number of things that Tsem Rinpoche does continuously without fail and one of them is looking out for homeless, injured and unwanted animals. And over the years Rinpoche has personally seen to the rescue of live fish (heading for slaughter) from restaurants, birds that are unwanted due to injury/deformity and of course countless dogs. And from Rinpoche’s example, it is very common for Kecharians to care for animals wherever they go.

    That the dog was spotted to begin with was due to the fact that it is a very common practice for Rinpoche to stop by the roadside and feed stray dogs and it is only by this, that Sonam came to be noticed.

    Sonam the injured 3-legged dog will now join many others who are under Rinpoche’s care. What is noteworthy is how Rinpoche and a handful of Kecharians committed to saving thing dog – an exercise that started at 3am in the morning and lasted some 5-6 hours. For me, this is one of the most unique traits of Kechara that Rinpoche has instilled deep into all his students.

    To me, whenever Rinpoche requests for the students’ help in an animal rescue, it is as much for the animal as it is for us the students because the act of rescue serves also as great opportunities for us to practice compassion and gain merits. And this applies to anyone, not just to Rinpoche’s students. Anyone can also gain merits by simply being kind to animals and where possible, go a bit out of the way to help them.

    Very good to know that Sonam will be well.

  26. Louise Lee on Jun 25, 2013 at 12:10 am

    城市里人与人之间非常的冷漠。 别说路上见到小动物,给于它们食物。有时候看见有车祸在路上,也没有帮个忙打个电话! 谢谢仁波切,再次唤醒我们被埋藏心底里的良心!

  27. uncle eddie on Jun 24, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    So deep is the compassion of Rinpoche, whose virtuous mind always wishes to see all living beings be free from suffering, irrespective animals or human beings. That’s he reason why, even at 3.30am in the morning, we can still find Rinpoche feeding an ailing and hungry injured dog with only three legs, while waiting for the tranquilisors to take effect before carting it over to the vet clinic for treatment. The dog is said to be suffering from a big fester hole, but yet no crying nor struggling were made when Rinpoche’s people later on safely carted him over to the vet clinic. Heartfelt thanks to Rinpoche for his immensed act of compassion for saving this poor suffering animal’s life.

  28. Patsy on Jun 24, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Sonam was very lucky that Rinpoche saw him by the roadside and went down to feed him, only to discover that he is three legged and had a bad wound. Poor Sonam, he must be hungry and in pain.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for reminding us to be compassionate at all times by setting a good example for us to follow. Another life is saved because of Rinpoche’s compassion. May Sonam wound heals quickly.

  29. Jace Chong on Jun 24, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for saving the dog and showing us again and again, what we can do for others.

    No matter dogs, cats, birds…injured beings feel pain just like we do. If we didn’t manage to stop all the pain, at least we can stop inflicting pain on others.

    The most easiest thing we can do now is to stop eating meat, stop demanding any food that requires people to kill for you. This is not only a way for us to practice compassion for others, but also a healthy living style.

    Please be a vegetarian now.

  30. Nob Tshering on Jun 24, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Rinpoche la I want to learn more about bhuddism and its benefits. Though I am born bhuddist I don’t have that much knowledge.

    Thanking You la Rinpoche

  31. Elsie Toy on Jun 24, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Oh my buddha. this morning as i was going to school i was a couple walk their dog with only two legs hind legs and I was thinking that is a kind couple who adopted the dog and provided two wheels for his front legs. Now I read this post on Rinpoche’s blog, Rinpoche has showed great compassion. The condition of the poor doggy bring tears to my eyes. I can feel the pain of the poor dog. The poor lucky dog has met our Kind Guru to rescue it. I pray that the dog be on the swift route to recovery. Thank you Rinpoche for the lesson on compassion.

  32. Jessica Yap on Jun 24, 2013 at 12:22 am

    Poor mumu.. As if it isn’t bad enough that he’s hopping on 3 legs, he has such a bad wound on him too.. Thank Buddha the mumu met and was rescued by Rinpoche.. Rinpoche’s kindness truly transcends time and place. No matter the time and place, Rinpoche is always thinking of others well being..

    I read that Rinpoche named the doggie Sonam. How cute!

    Rinpoche would always be an inspiration to me.. =)
    Thank you, Rinpoche!

  33. Eric kksiow on Jun 23, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Really inspiring, the post has showed us, saving life has no time and date limit. Looking forward to give a hand to KSA.

    Thank You Rinpoche.

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  34. So Kin Hoe on Jun 23, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    i am truly happy and glad that one more dog is being saved from the road side. The animals in our country is always ignored and not being treated with more care and protected compared to other western countries. Animals are part of us, they have feelings, emotions and all the senses like us but they only do not speak human language. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the blog with us. May all the animals be safe and protected with much foods and drinks as well as given a good environment to live like us.

  35. Eric Lee KHJB on Jun 23, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    不管在任何时间,任何地点仁波切都会为所有六道众生生起怜悯知心,时时刻刻都活在佛法的生活里,以身作则的让我们知道执行佛法教育的重要性,连这么伟大的高僧活佛都需要那么做,更何况我们这些凡夫俗子。及时行善,可以为我们累积功德,为我们修行的道路上,走的更轻易,利人利己,何乐而不为。。。。

  36. Wai Kee on Jun 23, 2013 at 11:27 am

    Heart wrenching to see Sonam in pain. This morning on the way out from house i see a poor kitten laid and dead on the road, must had been hit by careless driver. It is true that whatever that happens is due to one’s karma but it is still painful to see these. We should stop harming animals and one of the way to do so is become vegetarian. If we can sympathize what the animal is going through why are we still able to enjoy the meat on the plate.

  37. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jun 23, 2013 at 12:49 am

    Thanks for Seng Piow’ sharing.Rinpoche always put in effort to show his kindness toward animals. Rinpoche really care the stray dogs, not only provides foods and also medical treatment.We should spread such kindness .

  38. Su Ming on Jun 23, 2013 at 12:07 am

    Dear all,

    We received this update from Beng Kooi with regards to this doggie which Rinpoche has named him Sonam from the vet earlier.

    Sonam is doing well at the vet, he is a young boy but overall healthy. The wound on his back can be caused by a dog bite that became inflamed and infected or can be abscess that has ruptured then became inflected. Vet has administrated the relevant medication and will observe Sonam for 3 more days.

    Will keep u guys inform whenever we get any more news.

  39. Sharon Saw on Jun 22, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    So many animals are suffering because of human beings’ lack of care. We can say that it is the animals’ own karma that they are in that situation but since we are all in samsara, we are suffering, so we should help one another, especially those who have no voice, like these poor animals.

    Sonam was very lucky that Rinpoche saw him and rescued him. I am sure he must have some good karma for his path to cross with Rinpoche. May he get well soon!

  40. tenzin llhamo on Jun 22, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    Poor doggy yet blessed at the same time! Gosh.. 5 hours! The patience, love, care and compassion Rinpoche have is just amazing. How much pain, discomfort and confusion it must have caused the dog. I am really happy and glad that the dog is in safe hands now and he will heal with love and care. Thank you Rinpoche for always teaching us the beauty of compassion!

  41. pavara on Jun 22, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    This poor Doggie in such great pain.
    I am glad that this little dog was rescued by Rinpoche,i hope he is all right.
    Rinpoche always shows us all the good qualities.

    The poor little three legged dog luckily Rinpoche rescued him.

    Hopefully someone would adopt this poor little Doggie.
    My best wishes to this little dog.
    Thank you for sharing this post Seng Piow.

  42. Nikki on Jun 22, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for once again sharing your kindness and love with such unfortunate creatures!

  43. Davin on Jun 22, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Rinpoche has always being kind toward everyone and animals. Rinpoche compassion and sincere action has inspired many people. Rinpoche has save another life from suffering. I am glad that the dog is fine now. Thank you Rinpoche.

  44. Jutika Lam on Jun 22, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am very glad this poor injured Mumu was saved by Rinpoche!
    I hope that he is now in the vet and on the road to recovery and someone would son adopt him.

    It is really a good thing this poor little fur ball was saved in time by Rinpoche because I am sure it would be a very painful struggle for the dog to recover alone.

    It’s great to always know that these stray dogs wherever the are have such good Karma to be able to be rescued by Rinpoche!

    Thank you Rinpoche for always showing your kind and loving compassion to all animals no matter how badly injured they are.

    Love
    Jutika

  45. beatrix ooi on Jun 22, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Poor little mumu.. he must be really in pain. It was strange that he did not struggle when he was placed in the cage, I think he must have sensed that Rinpoche was there to help him, not hurt him. Glad to know that he has been sent to the vet, may he get well soon!

    The poor dog is so fortunate to be saved by Rinpoche.So sad to know it is badly injured and in great pain.It would have died if not for Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion.Rinpoche’s love for dogs comes naturally and shows us by Rinpoche’s inspiring act.May the poor dog recover swiftly.Thank you Rinpoche.

  47. sarahyap on Jun 22, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    Poor thing… lucky Rinpoche saved him or he would not have survived on the streets for long with that type of injury.

    Rinpoche always shows us consistently that we must be kind to animals, everytime Rinpoche goes out, there’s packets of dog food in the car in case Rinpoche sees a hungry dog there will be food to feed it. Nowadays, I too keep dog food in my car to feed any dogs I see on the streets. Rinpoche shows us by action, so we too must follow suit as we all do aspire to have the great compassion of our Guru.

  48. David Lai on Jun 22, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I believe that Rinpoche had named him Sonam, which means merit in Tibetan. I think he is very lucky to have met Rinpoche otherwise, it would have been a long struggle to survive by the roadside. Being born a stray animal has a lot of pitfalls and is a very lonely and scary existence. Meeting kind and compassionate people like Rinpoche and his students is really a rare occasion.

    It is very easy to neglect and ignore the sufferings of animals when we often ignore our own closest friends and family. It is definitely great to care for animals because it is training for us to care for others without an expectation of a return. When we don’t hold on too tightly that care and kindness to be reciprocated, we have spiritually evolved to another level.

    Rinpoche always show us his compassion not just to us but also to animals.
    We r very fortunate to have such a guru with folded hand Ithank you Rinpoche for teaching us.

  50. Vinnie Tan on Jun 22, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for letting me witness how Rinpoche treats these little souls. Feeding them with extra food so that they will have food for the next few days.

    Even saving this little guy, Sonam(merit), asking a few of us to bring him to the vet.

    I am glad that this little fella has got the medical attention that is needed. I am so happy for the group that stayed on to take care of Sonam. May he be blessed with speedy recovery, and have a good rebirth in the future.

  51. Low KHJB on Jun 22, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Seng Piow. Hoping for the fortunate doggy quick recovery.Fortunate as to meet up with Rinpoche and those who cares…

  52. Lim Han Nee on Jun 22, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Rinpoche shows compassion 24/7. At 3 am, Rinpoche is rescuing an injured dog on the highway. Then he waits with the dog until the tranquilizers, to ease its pain, arrive. Meanwhile the poor three-legged dog,in severe pain with a gaping wound on his back, is fed.Much do we learn from this situation. That when we want to show kindness, we go all the way.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for always reminding us to be caring and compassionate at all times , by your fine example.

  53. Sean Wang on Jun 22, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Rinpoche always shows kindness towards animals and will help any animal across the street. It is due to actions like these that inspired me to be part of Animal Befrienders Coalition. The doggy must have been in so much pain. It is nice to hear that the doggy has been saved.

    Imagine what would’ve happened if Rinpoche did not save the dog. It will continually suffer and now because of Rinpoche’s help the dog can be happy.

  54. Lucas Roth on Jun 22, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    Rinpoche has saved another life from suffering, poor doggie must have been through so much pain and his/her injuries were really bad. i hope this doggie is okay now.

  55. hecelus tan on Jun 22, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us what is the qualities of a Dharma practitioner must have that are Compassion and wisdom. These two qualities are the foundation for becoming a Buddha and achieve full enlightenment. Rinpoche you always using skillful mean on Dharma and also shown us that once we engaging in Dharma practice we must let go of comfort zone. With folded hands, Hecelus Tan

  56. Julien Roth on Jun 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    So sad 🙁 this dog must be in so much pain. I am soooo happy that Rinpoche had saved this dog from the streets. I am sure that it will become better now. I hope it does. I wish that more people would be as kind to animals as Rinpoche is, the world would be a better place for animals.

  57. edward ooi on Jun 22, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I think this doggy is so badly injured because of a fight. I must say, this cute doggy is very lucky to be rescued by Rinpoche. I hope its injury is not in a serious condition and also may its injury heals fast. I hope its okay.

    It is very touching to read Rinpoche’s message. How much Rinpoche appreciates the kindness and friendship of Andy Mattia and the huge effort in finding a long lost friend. We should never forget those who are kind and help us before. Always express our gratitude to them.

    Chinese artist Chen Lin, famous for his scenery of Laos and its people. Paintings are not just pieces of art that are good to look at. It is a painting induces a feeling from within the artist. The paintings are emotion that poured out from the soul of an artist. There are many artists who’ve left their legacy behind, they were obsessed about what they did and created their artworks. They wanted the world to continue remembering them for generations to come . But not Chen Lin , he just wanted to bring happiness to people . His paintings are simple yet it paints a thousand words of the lives of Laos people.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thubten Gyatso was the 13th Dalai Lama of Tibet was recognized as the as the reincarnation of the 12th Dalai Lama. He is a man of strong character but of kind disposition and is strict observer of religious ceremonies. He pays great attention to the details of administration, who proved himself a skillful politician. He was responsible for countering the British expedition to Tibet and was involved with the anti-foreign Tibetan Rebellion. He survived the ordeals of both experiences of the British and Chinese invasion with his authority enormously enhanced. Sadly, before accomplishing his goal for Tibet’s modernization he passed away at the age of fifty-eight. Interesting read of a Great Lama who determined to bring about political and social reforms in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The process of taking photographs is so easy, so common. Yet, for certain people, when the situation and circumstances are just right, taking photographs can be a special experience.

    Thank you for the sharing of an award wining photograph that worth a thousand words. This picture is one of the best that captures reality in life of a monk’s discipline and the effort of his vows to his guru. The monk found his right time to do his meditation has the rest of the people in his compartment seem to be faraway sleeping without knowing what will happen to them in next second.

    I’m sure the monk would have done a protection prayers to all the people in the train for a safe journey.

    This recycling project should be continued so that there will be no waste soup and at the same time it help many unfortunate groups to improve their cleanliness and hygiene.
    It is a very very smart thing to do, recycle the bar soaps and shampoos can save money, lessen the soap bars and shampoos that are supposed to be thrown away, it is very hygienic and we can put it into a good cost.

    Breath taking looking through those ancient beautiful Hindus temples. All are monolithic structures , with ancient architecture. Such as Kailasa Temple, Ellora, India built in 8th century and it took over a period of 20 years to construct. Some of these magnificent structure has been listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. All I can say is all these Hindus Temples not really beautiful but really impressive . I have not been to any of these temples but wish to see it. Anything ancient architecture or structures or holy place will always fascinated me and in my travel bucket. Can imagine how it was built those days without modern machinery. Interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Nepal-China relations have always remained friendly and cordial. The historic and multi-faceted bilateral relations between the two countries have evolved since centuries ago. The two countries have been marked by friendliness, understanding, mutual support, cooperation and respect for each other’s sensitivities. China has helped develop infrastructure and decrease import dependence. China has helped in the construction of highways and roads in Nepal. Nepal and China agreed to enhance cooperation in trade, investment, agriculture, cultural exchanges, tourism and so forth. Both countries benefited since then with the signing of the Sino-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed. Bringing opportunities for both especially Nepal will have a better economic growth. They are working together to preserve Buddhism in the holy sites of Bodhgaya in India and Lumbini in Nepal. This will being innumerable benefits for the continent and the world.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing.

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar, yogi and master of Sutra and Tantra as promise arose as a Dharma Protector. He is one of the more famous previous incarnations of Dorje Shugden to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa. Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s best known legacy is the construction of Gaden Monastery, a 600-year-old monastic institution which continues to exist to this day. Recording to H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s account the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is at Tsunmo Tsel Monastery . It’s a blessing I saw the beautiful stupa where the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen was. Interesting read of the life of a GREAT Lama and his legacy which i enjoyed reading.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Pemayangtse Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of Sikkim and the most famous monastery in West Sikkim. It’s a spiritual retreat for every tourist the whole year through as it offers a meditative environment quietly set amidst woods. Wow…This monastery is about 300 years old, which also offers the reflection of the rich architecture the ancient manuscripts and scriptures to tourist . I would love to see this legendary monastery with such an interesting history behind it. Recording to the British explorer and the Professor of Tibetan, description of Dorje Shugden found at Pemayangtse Monastery in Sikkim is rare and significant. Interesting read.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    A bird-friendly garden can be exactly many people would love to have. I am one of them I loved spotting and watching birds especially when the birds chirping sounds can be heard. Sitting under a tree , listening to birds chirping while reading a good book is priceless. The nature of the enduring happiness which the love of birds gives makes my day. Birds are some of the most wonderful manifestations of nature. Feeding them with foods is a wonderful sight to see too. Its Rinpoche ‘s kindness and compassion that had inspired all of us to be kind , caring to all animals nor matter what they are.

Still learning. Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Today there are more people turning to be a vegetarian. Vegetarians are usually more conscious about the earth and their overall health. People should consider becoming vegetarian because it has health benefits, reduces animal abuse, and helps reduce the risk of some diseases.

    Vegetarian diet has become mostly accepted in many cultures for its limitless benefits. It will be a healthy option if we choose to adopted to be a vegetarian with well balance diet. Of course going green definitely keeps immunity higher.

    Thank you for the knowledgeable sharing article, It is important for people around the world to understand the importance of being vegetarian.

    Nearly everyone has had weird, scary experiences, things that happen in life that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation. Unexplained at times. For me I am not scare as long as I do not disturb them. In fact feel sad for them, will dedicate my prayers to them now since prayers can help them. Ghost and spirit haunting always seem to be up to mischief at times. Watched those videos……interesting when the mysterious and unexplained happens such as the ‘moving pint’ incident at the pub. Interesting sharing of ghost footage taken in different pubs around the world.

    Andy Mattia a friend of our Lama…Tsem Rinpoche lost and found after 24 years . Rinpoche had not forgotten about him and recollected some of the finest moments of life with him. Its not too late , at least for a moment Rinpoche knew of his passing and had a picture of him after all these long years. A friend like Andy whom Rinpoche do not want to lose as he was kind and generous ,helping Rinpoche during the most difficult times at Los Angeles, California. Interesting read of how the writers managed to search and search without giving up and found it at last .Interesting video too.
    Thank you for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
