Kek Lok Tong Cave & Lost World in Ipoh

Nov 20, 2010 | Views: 4,014

Years ago I visited Ipoh and shared Dharma at various Centres and on our free time visited this  Kek Lok Tong cave. It is huge and very well maintained. I use to visit with the monks often because within the cave it is very breezy and windy. The cave opens up to the back which overlooks a huge garden and pond with a traditional health walk area.

Ipoh is two hours drive from Kuala Lumpur our capital.

I love this cave because it’s spacious and very airy. It has a very powerful and spiritual energy pervading it. I would often go there to do my prayers and enjoy the scenery.

This is the back of the cave.

At the entrance of the cave is a Kuan Yin pond. Very nice.

This is the cave as you enter from the main entrance.

Beautiful images of Manjushri, etc within the cave. I loved sitting in front of Manjushri to do my prayers here.

This is the back entrance of the cave.

The lake behind the cave that you would walk around.

The garden …..

It is a nice place to visit in Ipoh to get your spiritual batteries charged.

Update: 17 November 2010

I took a group of my students there to visit Kek Look Tong cave temple. Legend has it the cave temples were built by monks visiting from China, and they settled here and set up these temples.

The mountains here look very ancient, I guess it must have reminded them of home… I have always loved caves and mountains. Even as a small child, I wanted to run away to the forests and woods to meditate. When I came to Malaysia, I did not have that in many places. One of the places was Ipoh. I used to visit the caves temples and do my meditations and sadhana there, and also sometimes have a picnic.

We walked around the caves and also the park behind and I pointed out to them some ideas that would be very nice for KWPC. We are going to build a retreat centre in Malaysia that will be an alternative learning centre for healing, the arts, Buddhist philosophy.. There will also be a Tara walk and a large Dzambala and a Lama Tsongkhapa to bless Malaysians and the kind Malaysian government.

In the park behind the caves, there are many large ponds and lakes where they release catfish and koi and terrapins. There is also a path around the park where a lot of people were jogging or walking with their families. There were some gazebos there, and I gave my students a short Dharma talk there about how other beings suffer when we choose ourselves over others. We also did some short prayers there. It reminded me of the times I would go there to do my sadhana…the caves have not changed much actually. It is quite well-built because they don’t seem to need to do a lot of renovations or maintenance. Only problem is that it is wet inside and a little bit slippery.

I will be sending more of my students there to take a look. I like places like this where it is spiritual but also very fun and interesting. It is a good place for adults to go and get some peace and quiet, and also for kids to get out of the city.

By the way, we got to the caves using GPS. When my personal assistant Pastor Loh Seng Piow first got the GPS, I didn’t think it was a good idea but it was very useful in Ipoh and worked well!!

The entrance of the cave…quite spectacular

A beautiful Kuan Yin statue outside of the temple. She wasn’t there the last time I visited.
There is a koi pond surrounding her, which is very well-maintained. There was some moss growing inside but it looked natural and the water was clean and clear. The fish are very large and look healthy.

My students and close friends at compassionate Kuan Yin’s feet

With my personal attendant Monlam and Jamie

I love seeing animals free. My students regularly release hundreds of kilos of fish into a park in KL. We buy the fish from a wet market and release them. Then we go back and check also to see if the fish are okay, and also to feed them..

We were choosing our favourite fish. There were many beautiful koi in the pond there, very healthy and large and active

We throw coins at Kuan Yin’s feet. If the coins stay there, our wish will come true. Only two of my students managed to get coins to stay there hehe

Beautiful Kuan Yin statue at the entrance of the cave temples. I love Kuan Yin so much. When I was a child, I would draw pictures of her in Tibetan Form

David at Manjushri’s feet. David really loves Manjushri!

I love Manjushri too..I use to come to these caves to visit Manjushri many times before..

Making prayers to the next Buddha Maitreya

This is the back of the Kek Look Tong cave. There is a large park in the back with more lakes and ponds, and a lot of fish and terrapins. There are also some gazebos where people can relax in the gardens. When I came here years ago with my monks, we would sit on the grass and do our sadhana. It is very peaceful and serene here

I like trees like this…few roots on the ground, and very large spread of leaves. It provides good shade. It would be nice to have trees like these in KWPC. Then we can hold a lot of outdoor activities like classes in qi gong, tai chi, Dharma classes, childrens classes

There are a lot of enclaves like this. Would be a good place to have stone statues, and altars that blend into the rock and look natural

Mountains and trees, and even a reflexology walk for good health

Monlam exploring one of the enclaves

I used to come here and do my sadhana and maybe sometimes have a picnic with the monks

Placing my head at the feet of Manjushri

The temple also has nice statues of Taoist deities

If you sit here in the caves, there is a very nice cooling breeze!

Jamie Khoo…I call her Paris because when I first met her, she wanted to be like Paris Hilton hehe very cute

David with a uhhh stork…strange!

At the end of the trip, I took my students to buy plenty of gifts for others back in KL. I like to give gifts for my students. Many of them work very hard day in day out for the organisation, and it is nice to show them some appreciation..

17th November 2010

Today, I took some of my students and friends to a water park in Ipoh. Ipoh is in central Malaysia, and they have one of our study groups there. They are famous for a few things like pomelos and tau foo fah and also their mountains.

The water park was called Lost World and it was made to look very old and rustic and ancient and authentic. The whole water park was surrounded by mountains and there were lakes everywhere. It was really nice as there were even animals in the petting zoo! There was also a very nice aviary where the birds were running free. The birds were so happy and looked well-fed and FREE!!!!

My students told me Lost World is not as big as Sunway Lagoon which is here in KL, and it is also not as crowded. I would like to go and check out Sunway Lagoon soon too, because it is somewhere closer to home and more convenient. But I had a lot of fun in Lost World…I already know who I would like to send here very soon. They can just rent a van, or take two or three cars and drive here on a day trip…very fun, even if you’re an adult (or think you’re an adult!) hehe

Tsem Rinpoche

There were mountains everywhere. I have always loved mountains…so peaceful

The Lost World aviary. I would love something like this for my aviary birds. It is so natural and the birds are free and have a lot of space to fly and run around.

A lot of nice trees to shade the birds and keep the aviary cool

A lot of nice trees to shade the birds and keep the aviary cool

Majestic peacock

Something like this would be nice for the Tara Walk in KWPC. But the path needs to be smooth in KWPC so the elderly and infirm can also walk to Tara and receive blessings

I have never seen this type of monkey before! Must be a new Tibetan species hehe

Wherever I go, if I can I like to feed animals like dogs and fish. We recite Medicine Buddha’s mantra and blow it onto the food to bless the animals. By learning to feed fish and not eat them, we develop compassion because they cannot thank us for stopping their suffering. If you are my student, go vegetarian today. Stop eating flesh from dead animals.

Cute mumu!

Fat Monk feeds fish before we go on the paddle boats

I like to send Kecharians to places to relax and have fun. They work very hard, and need a break sometimes. I now have a department that works very hard to take care of my students and the Kechara staff, and also the newcomers to Kechara. They are called Kechara Care.

More mountains. I loved this view, I could just imagine myself in a small cave at the top meditating and doing practice. I am on a paddle boat while we take this beautiful picture….On the right, behind trees, there’s another cave. I dream this cave is my home and outside is green and had lakes filled with fishes for me to feed. I like this so much… All in the LOST WORLD in Ipoh.

The paddle boats were fun…Here I am paddling..heheh

Still looking at the mountains and ‘my’ cave

Some fun slides…safe for kids and also fun for adults

With one of my oldest students Fat Monk, who has been very loyal to me over the years. Fat Monk is a member of my ladrang team, and he helps to take care of the outside of the ladrang and do maintenance work. He also takes good care of my aviary and my tortoises which I rescued from the pet shops.

This is the entrance of the petting zoo at Lost World. It cost them RM6 million to construct this place and it has all sorts of animals like rabbits, macaque monkeys, parrots and macaws, and racoons.

On the tram that goes around Lost World. They take you to all the major attractions so you don’t miss anything. Quite fun, and you can stay out of the hot sun for a little bit.

Behind us there are also fun fair games.

We took some paddle boats out on the lake. We should have taken the swans, they were much faster!

We’re having a race to the other side of the lake hehe… I lost…

This water feature goes all the way around the park. You hire some rafts and sit in the water, and get pushed along. There are jets built into the walls that push water out and make waves. Quite fun and safe for the kids!

They even had an artificial beach! We have nice beaches here in Malaysia, and this one looked and smelt like the real thing!

Wai Meng (second from the left) was carrying that tau foo fah throughout the whole park hehehe Wai Meng doesn’t like to waste food. He leads the recycling initiative in KL that helps to raise funds for Kechara Animal Sanctuary

We were walking back to the exit of Lost World

I do recommend a visit here and don’t forget the visit the Buddhist caves 30 mins by car from the Lost World. Nice day out.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful place in Ipoh. I have not visited Kek Look Tong and never knew it has a beautiful garden and cave. Would love to visit one of this day when I’m in Ipoh.

  2. Stella Cheang on Feb 14, 2018 at 11:20 am

    Kek Look Tong is a well kept place for pilgrimages and visitors through out the year. The natural setting of the cave, trees and ponds are truly inviting to anyone who prefer it or who are looking for a nice place for self reflection. The Lost World, on the other hand, is an actions driven theme park packed filled with facilities and activities for visitors to spend all their energy on. It is very kind of Rinpoche to bring a group of students to visit these two interesting sites in Ipoh. Rejoice.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post of Kek Lok Tong Cave and Lost World in Ipoh.I haven’t visited there yet and reading this post and by looking at those beautiful images i can see its an interesting place to visit.The big statues of Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Maitreya Buddha looks beautiful and the lakes as well as the surrounding area too.
    Thanks again .

    The only time I visited Ipoh was during last year when I joined the YAK on a Orang Asli village visit, I have never been to Ipoh prior to that. The first impression Ipoh gave me was the environment is very clean and I could rarely see rubbish being thrown everywhere unlike KL, this shows that Ipoh folks are very discipline and they really care enough to abide the laws, it’s definitely something we can’t see in KL. I would love to visit Ipoh once again and visit this beautiful cave.

  5. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I have never been to Kek Lok Tong but the images here are so beautiful. I really wish I could have the opportunity to visit this lovely cave temple. I went to the Lost World of Tambun but I left one of the rides as I was terrified by the loud sounds Hehe. I wish I could go again.

  6. patsy on Dec 10, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Having read Rinpoche’s posting of Kek Lok Tong, I couldn’t resist not going to check it out. So together with my family and equipped with a GPS we reached our destination without any problem. Kek Lok Tong is a very nice and well maintained cave. Even though there were many busloads of tourists as it was a public holiday, the place still has a serene, peaceful feeling. The surrounding gardens were very well kept and the fishes in the pond were big and very well fed. This cave is not so commercialized like the Sam Poh Tong.There were no stalls selling joss sticks or candles for people to make offerings so that is why the cave stayed clean and free from smoke.

    To quote Rinpoche, this place is a great place to recharge our spiritual batteries. May KWPC manifest soon so that we can recharge our batteries there too!

  7. Anila on Dec 1, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Rinpoche visited with some of his students in Kek Lok Tong caves as well as Lost World Water Theme Park in Ipoh. Rinpoche loves to visit caves. Even when he was in Malaysia he has visited the cave on the Thailand Border in Padang Besar. Near this cave there is also a Monastery where Rinpoche stays for short time and goes to the cave daily to to do his meditation and prayers. Whereas in Kek Lok Tong cave in Ipoh you can only spend the day visiting the cave. There are big statues of Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Maitreya Buddha in the Chinese form brought over from China. During my eary days in Buddhism I had a Chinese Manjusri Statue with the Deity riding on a snow lion. I had it on my altar for many years thinking it is Kuan Yin until later someone told me it is Manjushri.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing.

  9. Angel SH Ooi on Nov 24, 2010 at 3:03 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing and showing us Kek Lok Cave and Lost World Water Theme Park in Ipoh. I like the surroundings with mountains, lakes, trees and lots of greens and it gives the feeling of serenity.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for taking Your time out to visit both of these places, and provided with so much information, it’ll help some of us a lot when we want to visit the place later.

    On behalf of Beatrix and Edward, I would like to thank Rinpoche for giving them gifts from Lost World. They like it so much…thanks

    Love, angel

  10. Tenzin Samdrub on Nov 21, 2010 at 6:16 am

    Loved the caves. This is peaceful….I must visit. We will make that happen. Me and my family in malaysia…..to see Rinpoche.

  11. Janice Kwok on Nov 15, 2010 at 11:59 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have often visited passed the limesonte hills and temple entrances on the way to Ipoh in the past, but never stopped. Thank you Rinpoche for this posting, will make a point the next time i go Ipoh to visit this temple. It looks so serene.

  12. David Lai on Nov 14, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have never been to this cave temple! It is so beautiful and find the Buddha images within very unusual. I will try to remember it and visit it when I am in ipoh. It is really incredibly beautiful and surreal.
    David

    Wonderful Laos

    Many visitors are attracted to its laid-back lifestyle, enchanting temples, mysterious plains, ethnic mountain villages and beautiful sunsets, especially by the scenery surrounding the Mekong, which explains why the word Lao means “please don’t rush”. If you’re looking for a place that has spirituality, somewhere that is a little different, a country that’s somewhat off the beaten track, Laos is a country that many will not regret visiting.

    Planning to travel? Why not consider Laos: http://bit.ly/2VVgQ5L

    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?”

    Wow … the first title published by Kechara Comics in Nepali. That is wonderful now with this Nepali version comic more and more Nepalis people will get to read , understand about Dorje Shugden. Looking at those comic pictures tells us a thousand words even those who could not read it. It’s a good way sharing , as in Malaysia alone there are thousands of Nepalis foreign workers working here.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Thank you for sharing this amazing and interesting video about oracles. A rare opportunity where we are given the chance to view those videos. Oracles acts as a medium through whom advice or prophecy was sought. In Tibet tradition oracles have played, and continue to play, an important part in religion, doctrine, and prophecy. Tibetans rely on oracles for various reasons such as healing of their diseases and on all important occasions. In Tibet, they have the Nechung Oracle and other oracles. The purpose of the oracles is not just to forecast the future but do assist in decision-making and providing intelligence on state matters. I have seen mediums taking trance and it is much different from Tibetans oracles from what I saw from these videos. Hopefully the Tibetan tradition oracles could be preserved , where more will benefit. One such famous oracle is the Panglung oracle where the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden took trance . In fact had helped HH Dalai Lama escaped from the Chinese invasion in Tibet to India back 1959. As advice by the oracle Chushi Gangdruk guerrilla group was formed and had escorted Dalai Lama safely into exile.

    Wow …wonderful Kechara Comic publication now came out with this important history in comic form of how HH Dalai Lama escaped from the Chinese invasion in 1959. The truth should be made known to all. Now coming up with this , more and more people get to know of the truth. It is our Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden that has saved Dalai Lama. Dorje Shugden who is a fully enlightened Buddha has helped millions and had benefited many which we all cannot denied. During the most difficult moments, Dorje Shugden will help us nor matter what race, religion one practice or pray to.
    Thank you Kechara Comics publication. Well done ….

    There are many types of people out there. But one thing is for sure, we are all not the same. We come from different backgrounds, upbringings and cultures. But it’s confirmed none of us would like pain, experience pain or even think of pain. Who in their right mind would enjoy pain? No one. Pain is something that brings tremendous displeasure especially when it’s physically. Imagine someone cutting you, burning you, decapitating you, skinning you or cooking you while you are still alive? Well this is what we do to others. Imagine their pain.

    There are cultures that due to ecological conditions they have to rely on meat. I don’t agree but I understand. But to kill an animal is very bad, but to do it slowly is really the ultimate in sadism and cruelty. And if it’s for fun or just our taste buds, it’s equally cruel. What type of cruel mind can slowly kill an animal for just the taste buds? I certainly can never do this.

    See this video. Share with others. I stress to share it with others. Don’t say it’s hard to watch. For every piece of meat we have eaten, we owe it to animals to see what they go through to fulfill our taste palates. We owe it to them and their pain.

    This is one of the most disturbing videos I have ever come across. I repeat humbly to share this with others to create awareness. Please social media this all over. Create awareness so this happens less and less. I thank you ahead of time.

    As the number of poached rhinos are breaking records in both South Africa and Kenya, please keep up your support of the men and women who are dedicating so much of their time, money and – in some cases – putting their very lives at risk for the survival of the African rhinos.

    South Africa has already lost more than 400 rhinos to poachers this year, including 265 in Kruger National Park. Many of the poachers are based across the border in Mozambique; to send a letter of protest to the Mozambique High Commission in South Africa, click on this link: http://e-activist.com/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=1736&ea.campaign.id=21066&ea.tracking.id=fb&en_chan=fb&en_ref=19085575.

    Kenya, too, is experiencing its worst rhino poaching year in decades, with many of its dedicated rhino sanctuaries being targeted. With a much smaller rhino population than South Africa, it is critical that the country’s remaining rhinos are cared for and protected – an expensive undertaking, but one our children and grandchildren will suffer for if we do not succeed.

    In this photograph, taken at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in December last year, a Samburu warrior expresses grief over the discovery of a poached black rhino. Owning a perfect track record until 2009, the conservancy has lost eleven rhinos to poachers since, despite spending millions of dollars on security every year. Now, more than ever, our support is needed.

    (CNN) — Packed tight into wire baskets — sometimes 20 or more to a cage — animal rights activists say as many as 200,000 live dogs every year are smuggled from northeast Thailand across the Mekong River destined for restaurants in Vietnam.

    Dehydrated, stressed, some even dying of suffocation on the trip, the dogs are often stacked 1,000 to a truck on a journey that lasts for days.

    “Obviously when you’ve got dogs stacked on top of each other they start biting each other because they are so uncomfortable, any kind of movement then the dog next to the one that’s being crushed is going to bite back,” said Tuan Bendixsen, director of Animals Asia Foundation Vietnam, a Hanoi-based animal welfare group.

    When they arrive in Vietnam, the suffering doesn’t end there. A common belief is that stress and fear releases hormones that improve the taste of the meat, so the dogs are placed in stress cages that restrict their movement.

    Eventually, the dogs are either bludgeoned to death or have their throats cut in front of other dogs who are awaiting the same fate. In some cases, they’ve been known to be skinned alive.

    The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.

    Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and virtually all red meat used in frozen prepared meals. They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite. This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body. And this leads to a sharp increase in cancer risk for those who eat them.

    The Greatest Escape in History!

    Located high in the Himalayas, surrounded by cloudy mountain peaks that rendered it inaccessible for centuries, Tibet is a land of magic and mystery filled with stories of lamas and yogis and their mystical feats. Out of all these stories, few have captured the hearts of people around the world more than the true story of how the charismatic spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama escaped the clutches of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and secretly travelled to India in 1959.

    Tsem Rinpoce never forgets the kindness people have given to him no matter big or small. Anila Thupten Chonyid was very kind to sponsor Tsem Rinpoche when he was in India. The little amount had made a big difference to Rinpoche.

    Without the sponsorship from Anila Thupten Chonyid, it would have been very hard for Rinpoche to continue his study in the monastery. Anila was very generous and her little act had brought so much benefit to so many people because she had enabled a great lama to spread Dharma.

    When we said money had to be well spent, I think money spent to support Dharma work is very well spent. When we give food, we help to solve the problem of the person for the day. When we give Dharma, it will help the person not only this life but in his/her future lives and the Dharma helps to release people from suffering.

    Life isn’t easy on the streets… You’re always hungry, your body is exposed to the harsh outdoor conditions, you’re embarrassed and people can easily take advantage of you.

    John Byrne is a 37 year-old man from Ireland. He has been homeless since age 14 and begs for change alongside his rabbit, Barney and dog, Roxy. Whatever he “earns”, he uses it to buy food for the 3 of them. How kind…

    At the end of last year, John was begging on Dublin’s O’Connell Bridge. An 18 year-old street bully came up to him and snatched Barney out of John’s arms and threw him over the bridge and into River Liffey. River Liffey runs through the center of Dublin and is ice cold during winter. John thought that Barney died due to the impact and water temperature, but when he looked over, he saw Barney swimming in circles. He immediately jumped over the bridge and swam to save his rabbit!

    There’s always a lot of news published about how people would torment animals, abuse them and even intentionally throwing them into the river like in John’s case…

    If we believe that animals were created by someone for men, it would follow that men were also created for animals since s…ome animals do eat human flesh.

    Animals are said to be conscious only of the present. They live with no concern for the past or future. Likewise, little children seem to have no notion of the future. They also live in the present until their faculties of memory and imagination are developed.

    Men possesses the faculty of reasoning. The gap between man and animal widens only to the extent that man develops his reasoning faculty and acts accordingly. Buddhists accept that animals not only possesses instinctive power but also, to a lesser degree, thinking power.

    In some respects, animals are superior to men. Dogs have a keener sense of hearing; insects have a keener sense of smell; hawks are speedier; eagles can see a greater distance. Undoubtedly, men are wiser; but men have so much to learn from the ants and bees. Much of the animal is still in us. But we also have much more: we have the potential of spiritual development.

    Buddhism cannot accept that animals were created by someone for men; if animals were created for men then it could follow that men were also created for animals since there are some animals which eat human flesh.

    Thousands of Californian hens have escaped being gassed after an anonymous donor provided $50,000 for some of them to be flown across the US on a charter flight to a happy retirement on the east coast.
    The hens, who have reached the end of their egg-laying life, were due to be killed – a common practice in the US.

    But after an approach from the Animal Place sanctuary in northern California, 3,000 of them will enjoy a comfortable retirement instead. Thanks to an unnamed benefactor, 1,150 of them will be flown to New York to be distributed to sanctuaries in the eastern US.

    Dorje Shugden Shize: A practice for healing and long life

    ‘Shize’ is the Tibetan word for ‘appearing in a peaceful form’. In this case, the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden has one face and two arms. His right hand holds a wealth arrow which is adorned with five-coloured silks and a divination mirror. The divination mirror demonstrates that this form of Dorje Shugden can help you to see into even the distant future; Shize’s practice is very effective in helping us to receive prophecies or develop clairvoyance.

    Read more on how Shize is able to help you: http://bit.ly/ShizeDS

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.

    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

It’s a good opportunity to know so many social heroes in different fields. Everyone is playing their important part in making this world a better place. From environment to animal extinction to hunger problems. We would like to applaud all the Kechara heroes for playing their part exceptionally well. ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
