Why save something that cannot say thanks?

Oct 15, 2012 | Views: 1,271

In Black Sturgeon Lake Kenora, Ontario, Canada.

Dear friends,

Acts of kindness never gets old nor boring. These people are very wonderful. They go out of their way to help something in need. Something that cannot say thank you to them nor show deep appreciation. Yet these people go out of their way and help. It is a short video, but a heartwarming video. I wanted to share this with the world as I found it on the net by chance. I do not own the video nor wish to gain from it, I just want to share and say kindness is alive and well. I was very moved to see this and I endorse anyone who help animals and do not harm animals in any way directly or indirectly.

How beautiful the world is when we care. Why save something that cannot say thanks? Why help something that cannot thank you? Because kindness helps the giver more than the recipient sometimes. So go and help always. It makes you a better person.

    It is heart warming to see how these people went out of their way to help the poor deer who was stucked in ice. People who treat animals well are good people because they are not doing it to get something out of the animals as animals can’t repay our kindness. Hence, those people are genuine in their actions.

    Everyone in the world should treat animals well as the do feel what we feel. They also are afraid to die.

    This is beautiful and shows the true nature of a person that just wants to benefit others without expecting any return. When we help someone sometimes we expect at least a ‘Thank you’ in return but when we save animals, we will not get anything like that. This is not because they don’t appreciate (some maybe) but they can speak in our language. Some animals may show their appreciation in their own way which we may or may not understand.

    The bottom line is when we want to help, don’t expect any return. Set our motivation clear which is to benefit others. When we set expectations then we will get dissappointment. When we want to do meritorious work we tend to face a lot of problems but we should just push it through and be consistent because we are not doing for ourselves but for others

    A heart warming video…….its so wonderful of these two kind soul help a helpless deer . These two men are risking their own lives too as the frozen lake might just give way or they can fall down and get injured themselves as we can see the frozen lakes floors are very slippery. Taking the time to help one who cannot even say thanks and speechless, without expecting a reward or gratitude is what true self-worth is all about. That deer deserved a second to live so as other animals who needs our care, love ,kindness and compassion, By helping the helpless or homeless of all sentient beings will makes their lives much better and have more meaning that we may realize.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It is very kind of the gentlemen to rescue the poor deer. The deer can’t even stand in the slippery frozen lake. Glad to see people helping animals as many would not even care about them especially needing to put in their time and effort. Hope more people will develop compassion and kindness towards animals and stop the unnecessary abuse and killing towards them.

  5. tong sun sun on Sep 26, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    在国外拯救动物是非常平常的事,平民百姓都乐意去择行。而且他们这样做也得到家人和朋友的支持。但是在这里。。。情况就有所不同,在这里就算有动物受伤了在你面前,你会考虑周围的眼光,家人反对,因为麻烦和肮脏,朋友冷嘲热讽等等。。。。而阻扰了我们拯救的动力。希望多播放着类影片,让更多人感动,更多人伸出援手。

  6. VInnie Tan on Sep 11, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    This is just great! These people are just such good hearted people. I believe many people would have just ignored the poor animal. To even notice and try to help the deer it is just commendable. I really hope that there would be more people around us that is like that, willing to help animals. Stopping all abusive actions towards animals as they too can experience different emotions just like human beings.

  7. Andrew Boon on Mar 19, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    We all do things that we tend to justify or find a reason to. What happened to impulses driven by care? Surely we cannot merely “block/blank” those out.

    Thierry and I just lost our 17 year old baby, Nanu on Saturday morning. Even though death was somewhat imminent at the back of our minds, because of her advanced age and her spinal condition which has made her bedridden for the past couple of months, it still did not prepare us for her departure. I suppose nothing really does prepare us for lost but lost itself!

    I think it apt to share this epitaph written by Thierry which sums up Nanu to a tee. The joy and love she gave us back was worth every moment even though she could never utter the words “thank you”:

    Nanu passed away peacefully this morning after enjoying her breakfast. Believe me, she would not have missed breakfast ever, so she ate first and died on a full stomach, that is sooooo Nanu! La Jolie Nanu…

    With any of the other dogs, we play or pamper, but with Nanu, we talk and she listens, and if we stop talking she raises her head with a wondering look “why do you stop, tell me more!”.

    She was also singing whenever she could smell gourmet food, and gourmet food was anything edible… anything… So there she would be, singing in celebration, in anticipation and also to make sure nobody forgets that she has got the biggest stomach of the family!

    A singer, a good listener and a great appetite, Nanu sure was great company! We will miss you Nanu…

    We rescued Nanu 17 years ago, she was a just a newborn puppy and the guards of our condo in KL were chasing her to drown her together with her siblings. Her mother used to live in the car park and the management did not want to deal with more dogs. She literally came to our door asking for refuge… she had come home!

    I received the news this morning by phone from Andrew as I am now in Shanghai.

  8. Paris on Jan 12, 2013 at 12:18 am

    I think that’s all the more reason why we SHOULD help a being – because it CAN’T say anything to us. It cannot express its pain, nor call for help. It doesn’t ever have the “luxury” of articulating how it feels, what it needs, loves, wants, fears. So all the more, shouldn’t we be helping it to the best that we can to alleviate some of its pain? We’re in a place with so many more advantages – resources to help, friends to call, technology, science – so why WOULDN’T we help?

    And for the few little dogs and cats that I’ve rescued over the years, I have to say that though they may not speak in our language, most animals show far more gratitude and give far more thanks than many humans. This kind of thanks from these animals lasts a lifetime, doesn’t waver in its loyalty and expresses far more love and care for us than many, many people I’ve known!

  9. Joy on Dec 24, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    This video is beautiful because it showed us human kindness still exist. We are humans… we are the so called stronger ones, smarter ones, the ones right on to of the “food chain”, basically we are in more control then they are. So if we as humans cannot protect those that are weak… why even bother being a human for? That is our duty and we ought not to abuse our privilege as a human being.

    This video is really touching because it shows there is still kindness in our world and there are still people who would do good. Yes Rinpoche is right… doing good does benefit the doer, the giver, because you actually feel “happy” about yourself that you did something “good” that does not concern your self and you do not get anything back from it. But actually you get a lot more back, that feeling of happiness from doing good is “priceless”.

    This Christmas lets hope that there are more people doing good instead of just feasting on the bird. Animals have feelings too, but most people especially in Asia, it is kind of foreign. Hence, we need to pass this sort of stories around to touch people’s heart… with that perhaps more will reflect and think beyond their stomachs.

    This two guys are very kindness, that save this little deer 🙂
    I appreciate it and very enjoy this wonderful video.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video.

  11. Darren Kechara Paradise on Dec 12, 2012 at 2:22 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing, some people doesn’t like animals but even if we can’t help them at least we don’t harm them.

  12. June Tang (KHJB) on Nov 12, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post!!
    I am so touched that the two guys helped the little deer.It show the how kindness to both of them.With their helping ,the little deer got second chance to live…Thank you!!

  13. Sheryl KH (JB) on Nov 4, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    It is certainly a freezing cold day, but these two guys have really very warm and beautiful hearts.

    How nice is it that instead of getting inside blanket doing nothing, these two gentlemen went out to save the life of a helpless being.

    Being able to give others is always a good thing, it means that we have more of something than others and it is both a merit making and learning experience in itself.

  14. wei theng on Nov 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    It is so heartwarming to see that the guys finding ways to rescue to dear from the frozen lake.
    They are compassionate and offered help without thinking of anything in return. With their help, the deer is able to have the 2nd chance to live.
    Saving life has very good karma effect, it will create the cause for healthy and long life!

  15. PhillisChin on Oct 30, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Aiyoooo~~~ So cute ^^, ^^, ^^, Luckily little dear meet kind hearted people ^^,
    Can see at first, little deer feel scared when the two men came to her, but slowly she know they come to help her and she have calm a bit ^^, Thank You Rinpoche to share this video .

  16. edward ooi on Oct 27, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    No matter who or what they are we still have to save them. They can’t talk doesn’t mean that they have no feelings.

  17. Cynthia Lee on Oct 27, 2012 at 12:50 am

    it’s very easy to ignore animals in distress even though we feel bad for them because it takes some effort to help them. However, the result is satisfying when you see them relieved from their pain and agony. Saving a life who cannot say thanks? it brings us true happiness and not the other way round.

  18. Tom Mellors on Oct 26, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    As Milan Kundera said: “Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect humankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.”

    I agree completely that we need to learn how to extend our compassion to those who are unable to communicate in our human tounge. As ‘earthlings’, cooperation is just as vital a force – if not more vital a force – than competition. We need to cooperate as species.

  19. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 25, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Great stuff guys for showing what it means to care for living creatures without wanting anything back or with any motive whatsoever. When we help others or other beings we are actually only helping ourselves for that matter.

  20. adeline woon on Oct 25, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    I’m impressed with people who do things simply for the benefit of others. It shows the level of their mind and how big the heart this. People like this take care of others without putting emphasis on discrimination, ie you or me, animals or human, black or white, chinese or english etc. They are normally the people that narrow minded people called busy body, never mind their own business etc. They are also people who say if we don’t help, no one will. They see their own responsibilities in humanity and do not seek for anything in return for their actions. They simply want others to be alright. This is our true nature!

  21. Pastor Yek Yee on Oct 25, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Why we save something that cannot say thank you to us? From my point of view why I want to help or save something cannot say thank you to me, because I feel sympathy and I think something need to done that why I help. I know my thought is very “unhealthy” however at least I have this kind of thought. The reason I want to help just because in my way, that is not called love just called don’t make myself feel guilty or regret. This thought come from selfishness.

    Compared with the post and the videos Tsem Rinpoche posted in his blog, the two guys who rescued the deer, they are really want to help the needed no other agenda. I watched the video how they tried different way to help the deer really moved me a lot. Selfish person like always only focus on ourselves, everything is me, me,me….but this guys help something without agenda because it is needed.

    They are so KIND!!!

  22. Sock Wan on Oct 25, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Usually we expect something in return when we ‘help’ someone, this act of helping is not entirely sincere. But when we save something that cannot say thanks, we are truly sincere when we help because we do not expect to have anything in return. This is to help us generate true generosity and kindness.

  23. sweekeong on Oct 25, 2012 at 1:06 am

    This is very beautiful. The deer will die because she is unable to move across the frozen late and will die from cold and starvation. No creatures or man deserve to die from their own mistake or from harm cause by others. I would be in a situation when I fell into a well. The feeling is horrible, unable to escape from death when we know for sure we will die there and then. It is a beautiful account of helping each other no matter what your beliefs are. Simply beautiful. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this. 🙂

  24. beatrix ooi on Oct 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    The little deer deserves a 2nd chance to live. It’s very touching to see videos or articles like that, im very happy to learn that there r other beautiful human beings out there doing good things like saving animals instead of abusing them. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche!
    Love,

  25. henry ooi on Oct 22, 2012 at 8:51 am

    A little kindness goes a long way especially for those in need, people or animals. One day, the same may be reciprocated.

  26. patsy on Oct 21, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    If it’s not for the kindness of this two man, the little deer will have no chance to survive in such extreme weather. He will freeze to death.

    Animals have greater pain and sufferings as compared to humans as they cannot speak or expressed their pain, sufferings and fears.If we are in a position to help them, we should.

    An act of kindness to help all sentient beings is what we should strive to do.

  27. jennifer on Oct 21, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Watching this video restores my faith in mankind. I’m so happy for the little deer that she is free. I am very touched by the action of the two men and their compassion for another living being.
    Though the deer is unable to express her thanks to these men, i’m sure she is so grateful and happy that her life is saved.She could have died in the freezing cold and from starvation. Thank you guys, whoever you may be, for saving the little deer.

  28. Girlie Ooi on Oct 21, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    If we have to be bias to save only those that can thank us for our help, then who is going to save them? Lending a hand or extending our hands to others less fortunate should be an act out of compassion.

  29. MayOng on Oct 20, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    I salute these rescuers who risk their own lives to save these animals. I am sure they are aware that these animals were in pain while they struggle to survive. Thank goodness for these heroes who rescued animals.

  30. Pastor Susan on Oct 20, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    Watching animal videos like this one never fails to make my day 🙂

    “Why save something that cannot say thanks? Why help something that cannot thank you?”

    I agree with Rinpoche that “kindness helps the giver more than the recipient sometimes.”

    If it makes you happy to put a smile on someone else’s face. Do it and more of it. If it makes you unhappy if someone is sad, then do something to change that. In the end, we are the one to receive…just like what Rinpoche said.

  31. mayy on Oct 20, 2012 at 1:50 am

    There are many whether near or far from all walks of life may need help. At times, one would see, hear or experience in helping others selectively…just because one (the giver) expect others (the recipient) to reciprocate the kindness or compassion rendered to them. Would this call the altruistic kindness or compassion?

    Again, many animals suffer too just because they cant call out or speak their mind for help? Would we the human help them? There are some would just watch and not do anything…just because they could not say Thank You or repay kindness. If only many could realise and understand the law of karma.

    • DR on Oct 20, 2012 at 12:34 pm

      Dear May, saving something that cannot say thanks is the best way to develop empathy. Empathy is to identify with another’s feelings and to emotionally put yourself in the place of another. Empathy begins with awareness of another person’s feelings. It would be easier to be aware of other people’s emotions if they would simply tell us how they felt. Unfortunatley, in the cases of animals, they are unable to. I salute these people who go out of their way to help another being. This is charity in its purest form for they do not expect anything, not even a thanks.

  32. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 19, 2012 at 3:51 am

    Being kind does not matter of your race, religion, age, gender, occupation, rich or poor, etc, etc, etc. Being kind id just a decision at that moment, to be kind or not to be kind, it is totally from your decision, no one else can decide for you.

    Our life often face with unhappiness, we calculate too much, if every step we took and we will calculate how much benefit I can get for the next step, then how to have a life of freedom?

    free ourselves from all these fake happiness, put ourselves lower when we are with others, help others without hoping for reward, when we can let go this expectation, serving others selflessly is a way to help us to find the real freedom, and this freedom will be the real happiness for us.

    It is very heartbreaking to see animal suffers,because when they suffers alone, they could not call for help, they can’t do anything beside struggling and suffering from pain, from fear. Help them whenever we can, because helping them is also helping us.

  33. Davin on Oct 19, 2012 at 12:23 am

    This is a wonderful video. It show the kindness of these guy save the deer from the freezing ice. It is heartwarming and inspirational to us.
    Thank you Rinpoche

  34. Lucas Roth on Oct 18, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    i was very moved and touched by this video because like Rinpoche wrote these people would skate through the frozen lake to save a deers life event though it did not do anything to them or even say thank you because it cant. but at least the deer gets a second chance at life and hope fully the deer doesn’t go back on the lake again.:D

  35. Pastor chia on Oct 18, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    People doing good virtual thing without getting any kind of praise , name and reward. Is the right way practice compassion. By helping sentient being like animal which can talk and know their suffering, it will help us develop more kindness and love more to sentient being.

    Thank you rinpoche sharing this video clip to us. Rinpoche has show us many way to be always kind to animal.

  36. Julien Roth on Oct 18, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    I’m so happy that these people helped this dear 🙂 if they did not do this, i don’t know what would’ve become of this dear. More people should show the same compassion to all living beings. Especially animals. The animal cruelty around the world is getting worst and worst by the minute. We need to speak for the animals, to help stop all the suffering of these beautiful, loving creatures. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  37. Jace Chong on Oct 17, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring video.

    Although the deer was freaking out at first the people approaching him/her, but he/she stop struggling later when he/she knows that the people is not going to harm.

    Sometimes, we are at this kind of dilemma too. Like what Khoo experience was he saw an injured puppy by the road side, she is struggling in the middle of the road. Khoo tried to pick her up, due to the puppy was very scared, she bite Khoo, but after the medication, the puppy now become friendly and cute.

    Helping people or animals does have risk, but in order to benefit them, we have to take the risk. No matter it works or not in the end, we try our best, better than doing nothing.

  38. Doreen Teoh on Oct 17, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    What great act of kindlnes and patient from this gentleman to save this helpless deer on the frozen surface of ice. A word of “thank you” is not that important, it is what you do to make a difference in someone life is most important.

  39. Milly on Oct 17, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Helping with no expectation of reward is very noble. I agree it helps the giver more than the receiver. Animals are helpless and depend on us human beings. Showing compassion to them helps to cultivate the Buddha nature in us.

  40. Uncle Eddie on Oct 17, 2012 at 11:45 am

    The differences between the animals and us are not so great. They can think, can feel and they can suffer like us humans do too. Anyone who has ever interact with animals (especially people like Rinpoche) such as dogs, cats, cows, deer, mice or whatsoever will agree that they are like us and can communicate their feelings too. As mentioned many a times in many write-ups of compassionate actions for animals, as an enlightened society, it is time that we should broaden our circle of compassion to include these set of “human animals”. WHAT WE CAN DO? Start by educating ourselves (and others too, if we can.)The animal-food industries, animal researches and others who use animals do no want us to know what goes on behind their walls. If we knew really what went on, we would want no part of it! Anyway, a lot of it has been disclosed in Rinpoche’s endless blogs about the animal cruelties committed behind those walls. The most important step is if we do not want to be part of those atrocities committed against the animals, the “BEST OF CHOICE IS TO ADOPT A VEGAN LIFESTYLE!!!” In addition to the direct impact of eliminating the sufferings of animals that would have ended on your platter, it allows you to think about the everyday animal cruelty… something that is hard to do when you are a part of it….. and this is a pure, clean and healthy lifestyle too that every human being should feel happy about with or without the Thank you. Many grateful appreciations for your sharing and caring, Rinpoche.

  41. Jessica Yap on Oct 17, 2012 at 11:27 am

    How many of us can actually go all out just to save an animal that cannot thank us let alone repay our kindness?

    Whether we do it out of altruistic compassion or doing it for fun, it doesn’t matter because at the end of the day, the helpless animal got saved and is alive.

    Everyday we get a brand new day to do something meaningful and kind unto others. I believe in karma very much that is why we should only do things that we wish to happen unto us.

    If we kill an animal today, who’s to say that we won’t wake up as an animal if and when we shut our eyes for good?

    Everyday I wake up feeling grateful and thankful that I earned another day to live.

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  42. yenpin on Oct 16, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    两位人兄还恨有爱心,把困在雪地的那只鹿救走,,不然的话这只鹿可能会冻死在冰冷的雪地上。
    动物其实是很可怜不会开口说话,也不能表达内心的感想,是快乐,伤心,它们也不能表达,但是我们也不可以忽略它们,它们也需要爱。。。。

  43. Louise Lee on Oct 16, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    人间有情!

    小时候家前面就是一条大马路,常常都有小猫小狗被汽车撞死在路边。妈妈就教导我,要把尸体捡回来,好好埋葬。

    如果,驾驶者可以小心一点。散开或避开, 那么结局就会更好!

    现在的社会很冷漠,我们应该从小就培养小朋友好好照顾与爱护小动物!

  44. bengkooi on Oct 16, 2012 at 4:58 am

    I am glad this deer was saved from the long slow cold fate. I would have done the same thing, but I am sure there are others would have seen this as an opportunity for food.

    What I particularly liked about this rescue is how the deer behaved. Initially she was afraid of the two rescuers and tried to get away. But as she realised they were pulling her to shore, she completely calmed down and even rested beside them after she reached the banks. Animals can know compassion when they see it…. humans should too…

  45. lucy yap on Oct 16, 2012 at 1:09 am

    To have a kind attitude is infectious and will inspire others by our examples.Random acts of kindness can be shown through thoughtfulness about the needs of others.We have seen many times when we wished someone could have been more thoughtful before they did or say aomething.Am glad the deer is rescued.Thank you again Rinpoche.

  46. ericchoong on Oct 15, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    我曾听过—个故事,是讲一名妇女救了一群困在沙滩上的海星,当时一大群海星被浪花冲到沙滩上,这名妇女恰好在沙滩散步,於是她弯下腰,拾起一枚海星并将它扔回大海里。
    同伴对她的行为感到不解 : 你这是在做什么呀?那么多海星怎么救得完?
    妇人回答说 : 的确是救不完,但至少尽我的力量,救多少算多少呀!
    天底下没有一个人有能力解决世上所有的问题,但我们不应为了这个原因而放弃助人或什至不能语言的动物,我们愈是能够培养慈悲心做更多的付出,就可以为自己带来更多的快乐。
    感谢上师的分享和一直无私的为我们付出和教导。

  47. lim tat ming on Oct 15, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Bambi is very fortunate to meet these two samaritans. Without their assistance, she could die not being able to move away from the frozen lake! These gentlemen are so kind to lend their helping hands.

  48. Gim Lee on Oct 15, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    The kind act of these people to save the deer is very noble. It is more touching because saving animal like this deer means they are doing it out of their sincere hearts to help instead of hoping for something in return. Yes this world is made beautiful by all these beautiful and kind hearted people performing this beautiful act 🙂

  49. Cynthia Ng on Oct 15, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    感恩那两位大兄的帮忙,把那只鹿从雪地上救走,不然的话它可能冻死。动物不会开口说话和表达它们的内心世界但是不代表它们就可以被忽略。它们也是有感情,有感受的。

    解救不能向我们道谢的众生是因为这样可以修行我们的慈悲心和菩提心。如果我们一味付出后要得到回报,那我们是不可能在修行上有所进步的。

    一切众生都有生存的权利!不要见死不救!

  50. grace (KHJB) on Oct 15, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    We are consider fortunate if we able to help other, regardless human or animals. Practice kindness can let go our selfish thinking and train us to think more on other instead ourself.

  51. nicholas on Oct 15, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    It’s so wonderful to see harmonies, cares and loves every where.
    This definitely brighten up my day!

    Everyone practice compassion, not that other need it but we too! What to loose if we give because nothing is better to seeing others happy & comfortable.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. It’s a cute and wonderful video for us to contemplate and share with our friends.

  52. AdelineTan on Oct 15, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    It’s so heartwarming to see Bambi, the deer was saved by 2 kind hearted men from the freezing ice, every sentient being deserves to live. Happiness comes from helping others.

    Poor thing… it must be freezing to lie down on the ice for so long. These two/three guys are so kind to save the deer from an almost definite fate… which is death. If more people have this type of attitude, the world certainly would be a beautiful place.

  54. Abby F on Oct 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, yes theses people are wonderful. Even though they are not the expert in rescue animals, but they helped that poor Bambi by themselves! The really put in effort and love!

    Rescue animals is not something fun or easy! Animals don’t speak our language and we don’t understand what they want. We might get into trouble during the process. Most of the time they will get extremely scared so we need to pay extra care, love and patience.

    So whether a person is kind or not, this can be tested during this process. How much effort and time we willing to put in to save this animal, how much care and love and patience we willing to give.

    Why save something that cannot say thank you? I would say it is because human always claim themselves to be the superior one, so when animals need help, for sure we have to give help and love! Besides that, we should take care of them instead of ‘bully’ them. If not, we are not qualified to say we are superior than any living things on this earth.

    Can feel this group young people have a good motivation to save the deer that trapped on ice surface. They try few way to help the deer to move nearer the side land. Finally they did it. That’s so wonderful!

  56. Adrian Chow on Oct 15, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Always love to watch animals on television since i was young. It is good to know for the fact that there are people out there actually care. Being kind and compassionate in fact is our nature unless we are animal which only survive based on instincts. We always have a choice.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  57. Mei Fong on Oct 15, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    We have learnt to use our current human life to being benefit to the others as much as possible and wherever we can. If not it will be just a waste of our human form. We lend our hands (physical) and words (verbal) help to anyone to needs it. The animals would have shouted for help if they can speak. We should have a right motivation when helping as a form of compassion to all living beings.

  58. Irene Lim on Oct 15, 2012 at 11:33 am

    I greatly enjoy this video to see that these people went out all the way to save that Bambi. It bring tears to my eyes to see such kindness, the very basic of human nature existing in the world. If everyone were to cultivate this kindness, there will be inner peace which lead to world peace. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  59. judy.lam@kechara.com on Oct 15, 2012 at 11:08 am

    It is a very noble deed to save animals that cannot speak or show any appreciation to the savior. Giving unconditionally is not what comes to our mind naturally, one that takes awareness, nurturing and it helps to be around in an environment like Kechara to do that. Many Kecharians also go round saving dogs and cats from the streets.

  60. Helena Chin on Oct 15, 2012 at 9:01 am

    Yay…. The little deer is free 2 go and has the 2nd chance to live because of human kindness. Think of it if the 2 guys are mean and they have no compassion to save the little deer!
    We human have all the saying to let the beings that can’t speak by themselves to live or not to live. We must love them more than anything as we have the ability to do more than them! Because we can speak, we should speak on behalf of them.
    Thanks to the people who had saved the little deer 🙂 I love seeing the animals are free 🙂
    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    Going on a pilgrimage to Lhasa , Tibet is worth . Lhasa was flocked with numerous monasteries and temples.It is world-famous for its sites of historical interest related to Buddhism, where hundred thousands of pilgrims and tourist go there yearly. The Tibetan have a long history in this region and very rich in culture. It is known for its splendid thousands of sacred lakes, and unique landscapes, with towering mountains.
    A beautiful and holy spiritual place for one to go , visiting holy places and connecting with the powerful energies. The Jokhang Monastery, Potala Palace, Norbulingka, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Ganden Monastery are some of the monasteries one should pay a visit. My wishes came true last year, travelling with friends on a pilgrimage to Lhasa, Tibet. Reading this post helps a lot for those planning to go .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing.

    John Lautner was an American was one of the most important American architects of the twentieth century. Wow …..his career spanned fifty-five years and left an indelible mark on the built environment of Southern California. Looking at the picture at this post tells all. Very extra-ordinary house built on a very steep land surrounded by beautiful tree canopies. Did google more about this man who built this building. He had designed more than fifty significant unique structures in Southern California alone. Over the years he had gained increasing recognition since, with exhibitions, publications, a documentary, and did appeared in numerous films, commercials, and other media. His legacy remains vulnerable till today.

    Going on a pilgrimage visiting Gaden Mosnastery in Tibet, was indeed once a life experience. Well…. Going there with an oxygen tank will be tough when one experienced difficulties in breathing due to high attitude. Nor matter what happen our Lama Rinpoche made it there back in December 2008 and early January 2009 during winter. I am lucky visiting Gaden Monastery with friends back in May 2019 without any hitch with our lama blessing then. It’s a beautiful monastery and its so holy one could feel the powerful energies there.
    For Rinpoche its home coming after so long. Seeing the pictures of Rinpoche standing in front of the Golden Stupa where the holy remains of Lama Tsongkhapa’s blessed body/clothes/relics were remind me of the great moment there. If given the opportunity again , I wish to visit the monastery again in the near future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article sharing. Children learn a lot through activities that captures their attention and imaginations. They too have a strong desire to explore, discover through activities .

    It will be a great start for the kids to have dharma teaching activities at young age, because of their curiosity and desire to follows what they see and absorb the interest to learn from experiences.

    This book is so interesting and all chapter need to contemplate continuously to gain more meaning in this. Thank you very much for sharing with us.

    Like many other topics, the paranormal topic serves to counter our ideology that humans are the only beings ruling the world.All the best and congratulation.

    The discovery of ancient Buddhist Monastery dated from 700 AD is amazing. Found in an archaeological excavation site at Moghalmari, India ,artifacts figure of Buddha and Buddhist inscriptions. The archeologists do believe that those structural components recovered are parts of a Buddhist monastic site . A more details study of inscriptions on clay tablets even suggested the presence of two monasteries on the basis of the structural plan. With the discovery of the site and the deciphering of the inscriptions has pointed that Buddhism had spread to India in the 7th century ago.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddhism and Hinduism are similar because of their architecture is vibrant and colourful. They both have dharma and believe in reincarnation. The symbolism and structure of a Hindu temples were dated century ago. I love to see their ancient architecture of temples wall and so forth. Its simply amazing looking at its structures , colour . To the Hindu, the colours have a very deep significance, transcending purely decorative values in their religion and culture. Great to know there are so many beautiful ancient Hindus Temples around the world. Would love to visit these places as stated in this post in the near future . Looking at the Virupaksha Temple, Ranganathaswamy Temple, Brihadeeswarar Temple to name a few tell all about the beauty of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Especially for those who are new comers with Dorje Shugden. Merely by seeing it can bless us. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri , will help us all regardless of race and religion when we trust the Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Pilgrimage is traditionally done on foot and often takes weeks or months to complete.The pilgrimage is about much more then just the destination however, the journey itself is actually the most important part of the practice.

    Now with these knowledge of where some of the relics are located, I will be able to visit the temples holding such precious blessings.Thank you very much for sharing this good article.

    The most popular Buddhist nun cook Jeong Kwan, is a Seon Buddhist monk and chef of Korean cuisine. She lives in the Chunjinam Hermitage at the Baegyangsa temple in South Korea, where she cooks for fellow nuns and monks. She also cooks for visitors as well. Inspiring ….. she discovered her calling of spreading dharma through cooking adopting a vegetarian diet . What a way to start off. She credits her joining the temple and her achievements to her mother, that’s wonderful to remember her mother. Due to her popularity she was invited to appear on TV show and cooking all the way to New York. Inspiring read.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these profound teachings and sharing Pastor Henry’s update of his daily practice with us. A good example to follow . Death is something that no one could escape for sure. Its good to meditate on death nor matter how busy we are. The whole process of death and visualizing it is highly important for us . Reading this post will have us wake up , its time and never too late for anyone to practice.

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

Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this.
