Dear friends,

I love this type of asthetics. You must see what I mean. Read below and see the pictures. Houses like this really are my style. Simple, straightforward and surrounded by nature. Nature is the key. Living in and with nature are the keys for a home with me. I love architecture of this sort. I can really live in something like this.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Antipodean architecture is at the forefront of the contemporary, sustainable design – and it’s in tune with New Zealand’s breathtaking, wild landscapes.

When Fred and Kitty fell in love with the rolling hills and gentle coastline of exclusive Paroa Bay, just outside of Russell in New Zealand, they decided to build a home there. But not just any home. The American couple, who live in San Francisco, wanted a home that would be functional enough to “lock up and leave” for months, yet beautiful enough to be considered a sculpture. It also had to complement the surrounding environment. “I came across photographs of a terrific house built in Australia and designed by the Australian architect James Grose of Bligh Voller Nield,” says Fred. He contacted the award-winning architect, who agreed to sell him the designs to build the same house. The result is a minimalist home Te Whare Hoiho (a Maori phrase for “home” that literally means manger or stable). Made almost entirely of steel and glass, it makes the most of its breathtaking position overlooking the Bay of Islands. “The desire to live in the open space of this overwhelming landscape is the primary informant of the design – the primitive platform in nature,” says Grose.

The contemporary, cutting-edge design reflects an architectural style that is being pioneered in New Zealand and Australia: sustainable homes with innovative, clean designs that are at one with their incredible natural landscapes.

 
Bringing the Outside In

To achieve a sense of “occupation in nature,” Grose explains, the walls are made of panes of glass – or windows – so the home has 360-degree views to make the most of the stunning outlook. When open, the floor-to-ceiling windows allow for natural cross ventilation, which is more eco-friendly than air conditioning. The outdoor-style living is enhanced by a deep verandah, which also has panoramic vistas. “It is a space of transition from the enclosure of shelter to the ambiguity of edge,” says Grose.

The house is set on a platform in order to make the most of the seasonal sun. In the winter, the sun’s warmth penetrates deep onto the deck, while in the summer the building’s edges protect and moderate light and heat. The large, double-paned sliding-glass walls are held together by an elemental steel frame clad with metal sheeting. It is, Grose says, “reminiscent of the original settler’s agricultural architecture of minimum means and maximum effect.”

Steel is a recurring feature in the homes that Grose designs, and he admits he is inspired by the agricultural buildings he grew up with. “Steel has now become the real language of Antipodean architecture,” he says. The overall effect is one of rigorous, simple elegance and, surprisingly, given the use of an industrial material such as steel, harmony.

Such modernist homes are part of a growing architectural trend in New Zealand for high-concept, environmentally aware design. Much is made by the country’s foremost architects of natural materials such as metal, glass, and, of course, wood. Lance Herbst created his award-winning beach house, Under Pohutukawa, almost entirely from cedar and glass. The tree-inspired home, though iconic, sits sympathetically and successfully within its surrounding coastal forest. “Cutting-edge homes always attract considerable attention. It’s human nature that people want something that no-one else has,” says Mike Bayley, managing director of Bayleys Real Estate, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate.

The end result is a single-story, three-bedroom house that suits its surroundings. Little wonder that it won the New Zealand Registered Master Builders House of the Year award in 2008. “The horizontality of the ocean, the linearity of the islands, and the voluptuous landscape present a complex visual setting for this simple house,” says Grose.

 
Distinctive Design, Sound Investment

As you might expect, the interior of Te Whare Hoiho is as high-spec as the design. The open-plan lounge and dining area, which includes a central fireplace, is adjacent to a designer galley-style kitchen, featuring a gas/electric six-burner oven. Sitting at the southern end of the house, linked by a long corridor, are the three bedrooms and the two state-of-the-art bathrooms.

Distinctive, architect-designed homes are frequently a very sound investment. “In many cases, because of the high-quality construction and fit-outs involved, and the remoteness of the locations in which they are situated, they often command premium prices,” says Bailey.

This house is one of a kind. A world-class architect collaborated with a world-class builder to create one of the finest holiday homes in the heart of the Bay of Islands. Simply elegant and elegantly simple, its expansive double-pane glass windows bring the outside in and provide panoramic views of rolling hills as well as seascapes of the Bay of Islands and beyond.

The simplicity is in the shear lines and easy living areas – three bedrooms, master bedroom with en-suite and two half bathrooms (one with sink and shower, the other with sink and WC) and a study complemented by the open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area all flowing to a large deck with views out over the Bay of Islands and beyond.

Privacy is assured as this property sits on just under 5 hectares of land about 15 minutes away from Russell – so not far from the local cafes and restaurants and the departure points for all the Bay of Islands recreational activities.

    To live a happy and healthy life, people need to feel at peace with their environment and to be able to enjoy the beauty around them. Nature gives us all. This harmonious balance makes our souls happy. People have to learn to live in harmony with nature thereby protecting the environment and other living beings that inhabit the earth. We learn to live in harmony with each other and nature. Choosing a nature design were Fred and Kitty’s choice. Its such a beautiful , simple elegance, and spacious design. I would love to stay in such a house near to nature. During my recent trip to Chiang Rai ,we visited a tea plantation which have such a design too . All made of steel rods and it was very beautiful, built on top on a mountain surrounding by tea plants. So close to nature and a beautiful sight to see.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful post with beautiful pictures

    I like the design as they make the house look spacious and classy. This house blends with its natural surroundings so well. Its all glass and steel and looks solid and light at the same time. It is a beautiful piece of architecture to admire, live in, work in, blend in with nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this beautiful post 🙏

  3. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 5, 2016 at 1:40 am

    This is such a beautiful house, very modern, simple and down to earth, I love it! I can imagine myself living in that house, it will be a huge privilege to live in houses like that, I don’t need it to be big, as long as it’s small and cozy, easy to manage.

    It would be nice if houses nowadays are built like this but I guess it’s because of space constriction, if everyone lives in houses like that, there’ll be no more privacy. There are pros and cons, but the house is very beautiful and elegant, it gives people or at least me the feeling of wanting to live there.

  4. Pastor Moh Mei on Dec 17, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Simplicity, modernity, contemporary and minimalist but the outcome is anything but. This house is stunning. And I agree that the most stunning part is how it opens up to allow the inhabitants to fully appreciate the nature around them. The fulfillment of living in that space is ultimately what’s outside of it, what you see when you look out.

    That goes to say, no matter how great humans are with creation and design, we still far behind mother nature. So the next best thing is to work with what mother nature has to offer. When we integrate the two, the result is stunning just like this house.

  5. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 23, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    Although the it’s a very simple designed house, but it looks very neat from the inside and out. The first thing we see when we wake up every day are the trees, green grass and blue sky, what a wonderful view is that! When I grow up and started to earn money, I will definitely buy a house like that for my parents as they LOVE greens! May they live long so I can have the chance to repay their kindness. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  6. Wah Ying on Mar 13, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    房子像人生简单就好,有时候是不是我们自己把生活复杂化了呢?还是世界本来就复杂,自己本来就复杂?简单的时候,我们可能担心无聊,复杂的时候发现自己“负担”不来。

    我想,应该是根本没清楚了解自己到底要的是什么,所以才会这样摇摆。

    如果是这样的房子设计,我想加上能移动的更好,可以自由搬动到我想去的地方更好,还有,刮大风下大雪的时候,还有心情不好的时候,可以把铁闸放下更好。

  7. tenzin llhamo on Feb 27, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    I like the design as they make the house look spacious and classy! Now that I look Rinpoche’s private residence in Kechara Forest Retreat, it looks much more beautiful than the picture above. Hehe… To be able to wake up and look out the window at the beautiful greens. Its going to be fantastic!

  8. Lucas Roth on Feb 20, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    wow, that house actually is really cool. i can see why Rinpoche likes it, it is totally surrounded by nature and that is a nice sight to wake up to. This is a lot better than waking up to a car riving or honking. I am going to be a architect in the future and i like these kind of houses, it is a very cosy too. in y opinion

  9. Albert Ratchaga on Feb 14, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I always like to stay in a house with very simple design. Just imagine, when we wake up every morning, we see straight into the sun light and bright wide space of nature.

    The best thing is it is all glass window, so we have to be very mindful of what we do in the house, of course it can’t be a messy place, so we must be very discipline in our daily life to keep the place well, this will also be a very good mindfulness practice.

  10. Jessica Yap on Feb 14, 2013 at 2:20 am

    The view is magnificent! I would love to wake up to this view everyday! I can see myself having breakfast by the balcony, planting my own veggies, doing my saddhanas/retreats, rolling on the hill, singing sound of music there! Hehe

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  11. Jace Chong on Feb 12, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I like this concept very much.
    As human, to live with nature fully requires to have a secure place, this design allow us to be with the nature at the same time have security and basic storage.
    I especially like the concept of that allows the nature air to come in for ventilation, as we can see from the picture, the air is fresh which carry the great among of oxygen.

  12. Felix Kong on Jan 31, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Wonderful house . Just a simple ,nice and modern design , close to nature ,have a wonderful sunlight & fresh air , beautiful scenery . I love to stay at this place .

  13. Lim Han Nee on Jan 30, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    This house blends with its natural surroundings so well. Its all glass and steel and looks solid and light at the same time.

    Being so close to the ocean and at the same time hugging high ground,it seems to be touching the sky and embraced by the sounds of the ocean waves.Best of both worlds really.

    Like Rinpoche I would love to stay alone in this place with only the sights and sounds of nature as my friends.

  14. MayOng on Jan 29, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Living and being in nature and natural surroundings is in line with our true nature. To be surrounded by pleasing sounds of nature (birds, animals, wind, rain), to be able to work on the land if we wish to (organic vegetable plots, flowers) and listening to the sounds of mantra recitation by lay community is joyous, peaceful and harmonious.

    It is a beautiful piece of architecture to admire, live in, work in, blend in with nature.

  15. adelinewoon on Jan 27, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    This is absolutely stunning! I love this simple, straightforward, clear, tidy, clean and transparent eco-friendly house! I like that it does not has complicated partitions that allows natural sunlight and breeze flow through thoroughly.

    Winter are cold and wet in New Zealand. To live in a house in such open space can be really cold, especially when it is close to the sea! If the house is built with complicated partitions, the cold will be trapped in the house, then it will not be eco-friendly or sustainable.

    This is the same as our body, we need to clear out unnecessary blockages so that the chi/energy will flow properly, resulting in good health, clear mind, general well-being. This way, we are also able to receive teachings from our Guru and improve quickly on our practice as we are open to advice/criticism/comments/facts from our Guru.

  16. abby f on Jan 25, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    To live in nature surrounding, we must keep the structure of our house simple and neat. So that the beautiful scenery would not be wasted. I love all the houses above, they are simple and sweet. I love to have sufficient sunshine and fresh air, and KFR and Enchanted Forest would be the perfect place for Rinpoche!

    Rinpoche could just sit in the house and do meditation, study texts and also teach us Dharma! (very greedy me) 😀

  17. Martin on Jan 25, 2013 at 1:37 am

    The genius of the design is how “invisible” it is, and how well it blends into the environment, turning the landscape into an integral part of its design. It is a design that doesn’t demand attention but gets it for its simple and harmonious elegance. It is like living outdoors but with all the facilities of a modern home. I can imagine than throughout the day, the panoramic views would constantly evolve from one scene into another with different hues.

    When you look at the house, it has such clean and simple lines but at the same time, there is a lot of thought that went into it.

  18. Milly on Jan 24, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    The simple and elegant lines of this house is great. And the expanse of glass gives a feeling of space and fresh ventilated air. No clutter and unnecessary furnishings required. This design does not clash with the surroundings and affect the beautiful scenery surrounding it.

    It is great that Rinpoche will be having a house quite along this design very soon.

  19. Li Kim on Jan 24, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    This is truly minimalist architecture which is clean, spacious and absolutely magnificent. I like the clean lines and the space. such a home in such a green piece of land is refreshing and gives me a sense of healing. This house would be really wonderful for meditation where the view of green is complete and even divine if I may say so.

  20. Jean Ai on Jan 24, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Well it’s definitely a house that’s both beautiful and functional, although my personal preference tends to lend towards something that is less stark. I like how the house works with the environment and blends in to allow you to really enjoy the scenery, yet it ALSO stands out with the high quality of its build and clean lines.

    It doesn’t look like a house you’d relax and vegetate in. It looks more like a house where you’d spend more time outdoors or entertaining friends…basically a house that belongs to someone who is highly energetic, minimalistic and practical in thinking…I guess a home really reflects the energy of the occupant.

  21. Philip Yong on Jan 24, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I like how simple yet elegant this house is and it fits in very nicely with the environment.

    At first look, I thought I saw the Enchanted forest Ladrang. I do think there is a similarity there! Very soon, Rinpoche will be able to live in an environment similiar to this too!

    Houses like this are not only good for living in but working in as well. I would love to work in a environment like this. I’m sure I will be able to think better and work better. I guess as the saying goes, BACK TO NATURE!

  22. sarahyap on Jan 24, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    It’s beautiful! I like the simplistic design and the ‘No clutter’ concept of the house. A very pleasant form of architecture where one can appreciate the beauty of the surrounding without having to worry if it rains or shine. Although the structure look so minimal, it also shows how sturdy, weather proof and lasting. Something that even people with no background on architecture can appreciate it’s beauty and wonder.

    It truly look almost similar to what is being built in KV! Certainly is great to be able to look out into the wilderness of the forest from the comfort of one’s home.

  23. Lanse on Jan 24, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    This house looks so much like Rinpoche’s house at Kechara Enchanted Forest.

    I love this concept very much, simple, green yet modern and elegant. It brings people very close to the nature and this is very much needed especially for the busy people nowadays who seldom get to see green. It definitely has it’s tranquilizing effect.

  24. David Lai on Jan 24, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    This is a very nice home. I really like it and I am sure Rinpoche would love it too because it is very similar to the Enchanted Forest. I think the house is perfect for New Zealand’s beautiful weather but it would be a green house here in Malaysia unless it is air-conditioned all day long or it is shaded by really nice trees. Hence, it would be what Enchanted Forest is going to be like.

    Such homes where we can see everything is best suited in remote locations where the area itself is fenced in. I do wonder about security especially at night. It would be great if the glass is tinted in such a way that at night, the glass is dark and in the day, it is transparent. I don’t know if such a tint exist as most conventional tints does the opposite. Sorry, just my thoughts on the practicality of such homes. I guess it is a silly thought especially when we already have the money to own such a house, we would have money for security features as well.

    Finally, I could imagine Rinpoche would be enjoying such a home with its expansive views of green trees and landscape. This home would be ideal for a meditator to spend time in meditation and long retreats. In that way, it would be healthy way to spend breaks in between long sessions of retreat. That would make this home ideal.

  25. patsy on Jan 24, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    I love this type of concept, simple and clean design with lots of glass to provide maximum view of the beautiful lush green mountains. Using metal frames is also very practical to prevent termites’ infestation.

    Rinpoche’s cabin in Enchanted Forest is designed with this concept in mind and it will be ready soon. Rinpoche will be able to stay there to enjoy the tranquility and the natural surroundings.

  26. Han on Jan 23, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Beautiful house surrounded with GREEN and nature, love the large deck with views out over the Bay of Islands and beyond.
    Architectural, it looks simple and creative. This house definitely bring constructive ideas to build Kechara Village within our own Kechara Forest Retreat.

  27. Sharon Saw on Jan 23, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    This is a beautifully designed house. The beauty is in the simplicity of the building, which looks simple but was difficult to construct as shared by Grose in the article below. I never realised how accurate the building has to be even though outwardly it looks so simple. It is really amazing as a work of art as well as a functional living space.

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=10697045
    The institute described Te Whare Hoiho as “sitting on the edge of the vast Pacific, this simple house – a kind of primitive platform – succeeds in articulating itself inside and out in the presence of what is an overwhelming, wonderful landscape. In the Miesian Murcutt tradition the structure remains in its elemental state and is enclosed with metal sheeting reminiscent of the original settlers’ agricultural buildings.”

    From his townhouse Auckland office overlooking Upper Queen St, Philip Lindesay, wife Leslie and project manager Hamish Craig tell of the challenges of building this house at Paroa Bay near Russell.

    Lindesay cites Grose’s words to hammer home the point: “Don’t underestimate how making something incredibly simple is monumentally more difficult,” Grose said.

    “The difficulty was in joining steel, glass, aluminium and corrugated iron together so it looks beautiful and doesn’t leak and we achieved that. The corrugated iron was extremely difficult to apply and get it to look nice. Everything had to be absolutely perfect.

    “Everything was pre-cut. The holes had to be absolutely perfect within a millimetre so the joinery could fit in.

    • Andrew Boon on Jan 24, 2013 at 4:17 pm

      Thank you Sharon for this information. The whole meticulous construction process adds an even more amazing wow factor to this house. The level of professionalism and planning that went into its creation shows the level of care and integrity of the team involved. Kudos to them!

  28. Datuk May on Jan 23, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    This is just so beautiful and familiar. Looks like Rinpoche’s abode at Kechara Forest Retreat.

    My experience on seeing the photos was WOW and in the same manner, every time I see KFR ladrang I fall in love with it more and more.

    Amazing feeling of space and freedom in such a building. Feeling of coolness, breeziness and well being with calm and purity. No cluster.

  29. Andrew Boon on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    WOW… what a spectacular home! Even with the stark contrast of metal beams against such a pristine beautiful New Zealand countryside, it blends it perfectly because of the use of glass with almost no walls… giving the home dweller the feeling of vastness and taking the full potential of the view into consideration.

    More pictures of the houseI found online:

  30. Khoo Hou Haw on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:13 am

    Wonderful design! Bringing the Outside in is the concept a lot of people are looking forward to. It reminds us that we are part of the nature. Kechara Forest Retreat will bring this back to us. Being able to meditate and be one with the nature, with the help of the nature outside to bring out the true nature inside of ourselve. This is what we will have in KFR.

  31. Ong Moh Mei on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:59 am

    This building is stunning primarily due to the setting it is in. I love the description “simply elegant and elegantly simple”. When the building of KV first started I used to think metal clashes with the forest. Looking at this design and also as I see Enchanted Forest coming to form, I have to say Liaison JP made an excellent choice of using metal and glass. We are definitely on the right track employing the same concept for Kechara Village. I’m so excited to see the entire KV complete.

    • Pastor Susan on Jan 23, 2013 at 8:35 pm

      I had similar thoughts of how metal will look in the forest setting. But knowing JP, I knew better to trust his taste than mine. haha…

      I like the simplicity of the building structure in this blog post especially the great setting it is in. If any elaborate structures were to be built, it would be a waste but just to have something as “invisible” as can be so that the great outdoors becomes the home instead.

  32. Joe Ang on Jan 23, 2013 at 1:48 am

    Simply elegant and elegantly simple, indeed. The combination of steel and glass allows maximum view of the surrounding area without much obstructions.

    To be living in such a beautiful house and nice surrounding would be really really nice! Looking at the pictures above, it makes me think of Enchanted Forest in KFR. Using the same concept of building mainly with steel and glass, we too have nice view of the surrounding nature in the Enchanted Forest.

    Being close to the nature and away from the hustle bustle of big city will really allow one to calm down and enjoy the moment. This is what KFR is about. A place to relax, recharge and to heal.

  33. nicholas on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    It’s really a clean design. I love the simplicity and it does look spacious with the open concept.

    They use metal too. Fast, easy, simple and clean. Like this concept very much.

    With the floor to ceiling window will give us a 360 deg panoramic view which is really a pleasure when you open your eyes in the very first morning and enjoy the beautiful and nice mountain or green view.

    Yes Rinpoche! This look familiar with Rinpoche house at Enchanted Forest, hehe……

  34. William on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Such a beautiful, simple and elegant house. It has an extraordinary views of the surrounding hills and green pastures. The scenery is also very serene. It would be very refreshing to wake up in this house. I love this kind of designs too.

    In fact, Enchanted Forest in KFR does look kind of similar to this house where it is mostly made of glass and has views of the surroundings. No wonder Rinpoche likes this house as it is like a part of nature. May be the Enchanted Forest will be an award winning building too. 🙂

  35. Henry Ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Nice and modern architectural design. I guess the trend now is to have steel and lots of glass in building a house in the woods. it’s ideal for a tropical country like Malaysia where termites infestation is quite common in the forests.

    Rinpoche’s cabins in Enchanted Forest on Kechara Forest Reserve land is similar to this house in New Zealand except it’s built among trees. And it’ll be ready soon.

  36. jp on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    The design is simple and evergreen. It makes a lot of sense to build a house wiith maximum windows so that the resident can enjoy the breathtaking views. It almost feels like you’re one with nature.

    Kechara Village will be built with a very similar concept of being able to enjoy the natural surroundings of the tropical jungle. It creates an environment of peace and tranquility very suitable to de-stress and meditate.

  37. Joy on Jan 22, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    Beautiful, simple, stylish and creative. Minimalistic yet not too boring which I am certain Rinpoche will have an awesome altar in it hehehe.

    These are also the same kind of architectural designs I admire and like. There is a flow and balance of good space, it is not hard, cold and stark and most importantly it does not clash with nature and its surroundings! Rinpoche has GOOD TASTE! Obviously….

    Very soon Rinpoche will have this in KFR 🙂

  38. Paris on Jan 22, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    LOL This building is stunning – and not just for the aesthetics, but for the fact that it would be a powerful practice of awareness and discipline for someone as cluttered as myself! I guess that being in a place like this would help us to reintegrate back with nature and what we are inherently a part of within the environment. It’s easy enough, in the city and surrounded by concrete walls, to believe that our worlds are defined and created by the things we acquire, buy and own, instead of the actual natural world that we’re living in.

    To live in a place like this, I guess we’d realise that we don’t actually need all those “things” to keep us happy and that we can actually live in simplicity. The minimalist design of the house alone would “force” someone like me to stop accumulating things things things. I’d have to think twice about buying or putting things out simply because a house would look terrible if filled with clutter – a good practice in letting go of the material world, of discipline and awareness of our surroundings.

  39. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    It is nice to be able to live in an architecture that is built to one’s likings.

    In this architecture, we get a lot of exposure to the surrounding nature. We live within a house and hence are protected from negativities of the nature, and yet we can enjoy the natural scenaries without much difficulty. How nice.

    The only drawback perhaps is the glass maintenance, that we need to clean them on consistent basis in order to enjoy them. I guess a professional team is needed in this.

    Rinpoche’s private residence in KFR also have quite a bit of glass windows. The view may not be that spectacular as the ocean view in New Zealand, but being able to wake up to see trees,bushes and some forest animals and to take in the fresh air from the forest is something that is quite distinctive in Malaysia.

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