Tsem Rinpoche Visits the Famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Thailand!

This video contains more footage of the floating market so you can see, taste, smell and experience the exotic environment. I really like it here… if you can’t get here anytime soon, well join me on this video… this particular floating market opens daily 7:30 am to 12:30pm… Leave early in the morning… you’ll love it…

 

Dear friends,

We drove two hours from Bangkok to the world famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. There are many floating markets not far from Bangkok, but this one is the original. The other ones we visited are nice also although not the original one.  But whether it’s the original one or not, does not matter as they all have their appeal. They are all very nice…. visit the floating markets in Thailand!

People at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market are very friendly, outgoing, full of smiles and like to bargain with their items… But if you smile, they will smile back very fast. There are houses, shops, tea stops, gift items on both sides of the river for you to feast your eyes on. And many things are sold on the boats floating along the two sides against the pier. I enjoyed the ride so much. I bought some traditional Thai puppets. They wanted 4,500 baht for it, but I bargained to 2,500 baht and it took 5 mins… Wear light clothes, T-shirts, and cotton items to be comfortable…  It was a blistering hot day when we went, so don’t forget to bring your umbrellas when you ride on the boat… we forgot!! Hehe… There is plenty of good food at the market… so you won’t be hungry. In fact, there’s too much good food.

Beng Kooi, Datuk May, Pastor Loh Seng Piow, James, Ethan, Bryan, Lew, Justin Ripley, Su Ming, Cynthia, Monlam, Wan, Jp, Carmen, Wai Meng and myself rented a mini bus and took the journey from Bangkok… We all enjoyed the Floating Market very very very much.

Traffic jams in Bangkok start around 3-3:30pm and can last until 7pm. So wherever you go, you must avoid this timing. If you are coming into Bangkok then you must get in before 3:30pm daily or you will need an extra hour to get where you want to go within Bangkok. If you wish to for example drive outside of Bangkok, leave before 3:30pm also. Either in or out of Bangkok, AVOID THE JAMS… YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED… LOL.

There are places outside of Bangkok we visited and it would normally take one hour to arrive, with the jam it takes two hours… so we learned the hard way to avoid the infamous  jams… hehehe… Bangkok is a huge metropolitan city with 10 million population and when offices/businesses close, everyone rushes to get home. Heed my warning regarding traveling around in cars BEFORE 3;30pm. Sundays should be better.

Not all of Bangkok is connected by tram or train, so if you have to go out then get use to the trains wherever they are available, they are convenient, punctual and do not get stuck in traffic.

I loved riding the boat on the river of  Damnoen Saduak Floating Market… I decided to share a thoughts on the relevance of Buddha images and making offerings everyday. Why we make offerings, the benefits and how it started. I sincerely hope the talks help you while you feast your eyes on the exotic scenes.

Much Care as usual,
Tsem Rinpoche


I had the fortune to purchase this beautiful Buddha for 1,200 baht. I carried Buddha with me on the boat all throughout the market. I wanted everyone to be blessed. I felt like the boatman escorting Lord Buddha who is the King to meet the people. Everyone who saw the Buddha loved it and smiled. Thank goodness I have a hat on as it was very very very hot that day.

So much happening on both sides of the river as you float by… after the boat ride or during the boat ride you can stop and see the shops… Lots of interesting shops for sure.

fm03

I have always loved puppets… any type of puppets… I purchased this traditional Thai puppet here…


fm04

Lots of food, snacks, fruits and tidbits to buy…

Myself with Lord Buddha on my head as I escort Him throughout the village for all to be blessed. Pastor Loh Seng Piow in the red behind me and Wan in the blue laughing away… I think she liked the hat she’s wearing…

Thailand is really one of the best tourist places to visit in the world for sure… and lots of spiritual places also…

    This is very important for us to have a qualified guru with pure lineage to give us Buddha teachings and explanations in these ritual matters especially for the new spiritual learners. Always remember that only by practicing the methods taught by the guru, purify our negative karma, accumulate merits to enable us to gain realisations and eventually achieve the enlightenment.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear explanations on how to arrange for an altar setup and the importance of making offerings to the Buddha. We should learn and practice accordingly and share to others as much as we could.

  2. Wah Ying on Dec 28, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    Thank you for sharing this video with nice scenery and teachings on having an altar, the representation of Buddha image and making offering to Buddha; as well as the meaning of the purpose we come to the world is to give and benefit. As usual Rinpoche always finds ways to give teachings benefiting many, including those who see Rinpoche was cruising around the river carrying Buddha statue with him, for tourists and many who around the floating market to see the Buddha image.

    hi hi im new here, but enjoy reading this page very much.. thank you _/\_

  4. Julia Tan on Nov 14, 2014 at 12:46 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Dharma talk and the tour at the floating market with us. I can imagine how hot the weather at the floating market yet Rinpoche compassionately gave the teaching in a boat that wobbled in the river for hours. Rinpoche always find ways to give us teaching so that we find it interesting to learn and remember. Rinpoche never miss any chance that he think of that would benefit people. Thank you for explaining the significant and important of a Buddha statue which represent the accumulation merits for the 3 eons. Thank you Rinpoche

  5. Pee Bee Chong on Aug 6, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the wonderful teachings. I am currently offering water and do Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga every day. I hope to generate enough merit to continue my spiritual journey. Thank you again for the teachings.

  6. Penang Study Group on May 12, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Penang Study Group comment

    We are grateful to Rinpoche for having this teaching in an unusual place, that is Floating Market. Most of us did enjoy this teaching very much. For study purposes, we based our discussion on the benefits of offerings to the Sangha. Few questions were asked such as what constitutes as an offerings, the meaning of Sangha, the importance of offerings and lastly, the motivation.

    We shared a great deal of ideas and knowledges that we have and after having to listen to Rinpoche’s teaching about offerings. For instance, despite the usual offerings such as statues, books and stupa that constitutes Body, Speech and Mind, some of them came up with other unusual offerings (inner offerings) such as transformation of mind, good heart, Guru devotion and attachments as well. In short, we agreed that we offer the best. As to why we need to offer to the Sangha, there were two distinctive answers; to ensure that Sangha can concentrate on their practices so that they in turn can benefit more people and helped Sangha to uphold and spread the Dharma.

    Although, just as Rinpoche has mentioned, there are differing merit for different offerings, the motivation must be set right. We should offer in a manner that these offerings benefits all such as by helping to sustain Sangha in their practices, Dharma will be preserved for a very long time. Lastly, thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

  7. Yee Mun on May 10, 2014 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing this teaching. The teaching is easy to understand and very beneficial to beginner that would like to setup their altar.

    I now have better understanding on the set up of a basic altar, preferable offering items and the meaning for doing this.

    I will continue with my daily water offering to generate more merits for me to gain more dharma knowledge and to continue with my dharma practice.

  8. Soon Huat (Penang) on May 10, 2014 at 9:52 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for the marvelous teaching. I was amazed 3 eons of merits to form Buddha images, it is not easy at all. I am glad that I setup the Buddhism altar with Patsy’s advice. I love my altar and Buddha images. They are motivation for me to do daily prayer. I love to watch the Buddha status while doing my prayers, they are my ultimate goals and remind me of their teaching and vows. Doing offering to altar can be one of simple way for us to correct merits daily. We need a lot of merits in Dharma path.

    Thank You Rinpoche.

    Cheers,
    Soon Huat

  9. Tsa Tsa Ong on May 9, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing about the importance of having a statue and altar. I will bare that im mind and set up my mini altar soon and do water offering with my tsa tsas medicine buddha statue

  10. Shelly tai on May 9, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Dharma talk with us, I really love to listen to Rinpoche talk whether is short or long it always very inspiring. Indeed is very true what Rinpoche said we come to this world not just talke we should give , give do not mean just monetary give it can be in the form of our time , care and kindness and extend all these care and live to all mothers sentient being especially the animals because animal has very little ability to take care themselves we human has much more greater ability to give them care.

  11. Uncle Eddie on May 8, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    How wonderful and meritorious it was for our lucky people to be with Rinpoche in escorting the Buddha’s statue round the Damnoensaduak floating-market village on a boat to bless the people there. Like Rinpoche said, “everyone who saw the Buddha loved it and smiled”.As usual with his great compassion, Rinpoche wanted everyone to be blessed, and be happy too. What could be a better place for such real dharma learning and sharing experiences on a boat with a Guru! Thank you Rinpoche for your wonderful sharing of which many seem to admire and fancy its “uniqueness”. It is indeed some teaching that no one will want to forget and an immaculate example which all would wish to follow!

  12. Edward Ooi on May 7, 2014 at 11:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I want to visit the floating market someday. I just google searched the word eon. They explained that one eon is equals to 1 billion years and that also means that Lord Buddha were looking for Buddhism for over three billions years. I’m not trying to say that Rinpoche is wrong or what but humans was not even born three billions ago. Could it be that other planets also have Buddhism?

  13. Daisy Sun on May 7, 2014 at 1:49 am

    I’m writing to thank Rinpoche that I decided to set up my altar about 2 year ago, after watching your meaningful teaching on having a Buddha statue and setting up an altar. This is something that I never thought of doing it in my life…transformation is on the way. Thanks Rinpoche. 🙂

  14. Julien Roth on May 6, 2014 at 11:25 pm

    I am glad that Rinpoche enjoys trips like this 🙂 it’s always very interesting for me as well to read. I enjoy reading about things like this and I hope that Rinpoche will share more in the future.

  15. Sean Wang on May 5, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    Thank you for sharing on the significance on Buddhas statues on our altars and making offerings to Buddha. I really like the atmosphere of the floating markets of Bangkok, I hope that one day I can visit them.

  16. DR on May 5, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    There are countless floating markets throughout Bangkok, many within a couple of hours of the capital. The most famous of the floating markets is Damnoen Saduak, about 100 kilometers southwest of Bangkok, which is the one Rinpoche visited. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day builds up. I enjoyed it very much too when I visited once. Thank you Rinpoche for always creating unconventional and creative ways to teach the dharma.

  17. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on May 5, 2014 at 4:36 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the wonderful teaching, now we more understand the details of “Offering”

    Offering can be make through our inner and outer offering, we should make more offering hence to get more Merits to be a better person and have a better life…

  18. Datuk May on May 5, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    It is always a privilege to be with Rinpoche, for there will always be a learning of great significance to overcome our ignorance. I remember clearly this trip to the Floating Market and we had a lot of fun, learning the history of the place, the reason for setting up an altar and the significance of a Buddha statute.

    We also enjoyed the people there as Thais are Buddhists, they were very attracted to Rinpoche as he carried the statutes with blessings for them all and somehow they knew that.

    Wonderful trip and wonderful learning on Buddha statutes and why we should have them. So much meanings to benefit us.

  19. Lucas Roth on Oct 31, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    i hope everyone had a good time and the floating market looks so fun. i like the idea, it seems so nice to have a ride in a boat and you can but things and eat, i like the thought. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  20. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 22, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Rinpoche is dharma 24×7, even when Rinpoche took a break to check out the floating market. We all had a great time and Rinpoche as usual cracked a lot of jokes. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on the importance of having Buddhist images.

  21. Shelly tai on Sep 18, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these beautiful picture in Thailand floating market and a dharma talk. I love the Buddha statue that Rinpoche invite very classic looking Buddha and the price a very reasonable.

  22. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Sep 16, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this, I’ve learn a lot from this video. From doing offering and setting up altar, it’s interesting to see Rinpoche doing a Dharma sharing on a boat. The statue Rinpoche holding is really beautiful.

  23. Cliff on Sep 15, 2013 at 12:06 am

    Wow, Saduak floating market looks really fun to visit, I’ve always wanted to visit that place but never got the chance to go. It was really funny to watch Rinpoche bargain with the lady shop owner haha. Thank you Rinpoche was giving us a short and precise teaching about the significance of praying to the Buddha and significance of a Buddha statue and how to do short daily prayers and offerings to the Buddha, I really enjoyed the teaching. Thank you for sharing your teaching with us and producing an easy video to view and tips on visiting Bangkok and Saduak.

  24. Lucille McKinney on Sep 11, 2013 at 12:47 am

    I haven’t been to Bangkok but I’ve heard a lot about that wonderful place. So many places to go and activities to experience. I am also interested to know about their culture and tradition.

  25. Lucas Roth on Sep 6, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    wow, i hope you had a good time Rinpoche, and that place looks so nice and the shops on water and the restaurants on water too. it looks so nice and peaceful too. i wonder how nice the food is, i bet it is good. thank you for sharing this Rinpoche.

    感谢仁波切的开始 ~ 因为有仁波切的开示在 ~ 那么我们就会明白正真供养的意义 与 方式 ~还有抱着怎样一个正确的发心

    以前从来就没有人教会我这些~但进入了kechara 后 ,来到师父这blog的大宝藏里~恍然发现原来供佛的正真意义原来是这样庄严的 ~让我改掉了以前人拜我就盲目的拜~供养的意义不懂~让我改掉以为供养是给佛吃的就盲目供养

    感谢仁波切的教诲~大家要多来师父的blog 真的可以学到很多东西

  27. Krzysztof Furyu Leśniak on Sep 3, 2013 at 7:04 am

    So wonderfull to listen… you`re rebilding my motivation to return to thangka painting, making statues what I have studied for many years (Karma Gadri School with Gega Lama… & so on), to continue and restart place for Dharma practice I led in my town for 27 years (last 3 years of crisis and taking personal brake)but the most important to to intensifie my everyday practice and not ignore various forms of practice, elevating cultivation of this very moment`s state of pure mind, puting down any other way of expresing practice… just thank you so much, I can not express strenth of my beating heart now… thank you, thank you…

  28. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Sep 3, 2013 at 4:12 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this article to us, i m more understand about “Offering”.

    “Offerings to the Buddha is not that they want. It is for you to make offerings in order to generate the MERIT to be able to understand mind, ego and the path. By merits we are eventually able to eliminate the ego. The tradition of making offerings to the Three Jewels was started by Lord Shakyamuni Himself. An enlightened Tathagata is a correct object of veneration, refuge and also a merit field. Most people cannot offer even a tiny bit of their egos to the Buddhas, so let them start by offering water, flowers and incense.”

  29. Deki D. Sherpa on Jun 25, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Thanks la Rinpoche, i really loved your programme. Blessed me rinpoche.

    Tashi Delek!

  30. Pastor Susan on May 9, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    I’m working with this teaching at the moment to incorporate in to our Lamrim classes. This teaching is shot in such a beautiful place with Rinpoche on the boat, a beautiful statue in his arm as Rinpoche eloquently taught the dharma. This video teaching is a must watch for all who are new to setting up altars, learning the benefits of buddha images.

  31. Lim Han Nee on Aug 30, 2011 at 10:47 am

    Thank you , Rinpoche. You share with us every sight and sound that you experience in Bangkok and we live each experience vicariously through you.

    Thank you for the Dharma sharing on making offerings to Buddha statues.

    When you said that the Buddha’s form or body is the culmination of three aeons of merits of body, speech and mind (practising restraint and abandonment of the ten non-virtuous actions of body, speech and mind), it had/has a powerful impact on the way I now view Buddha statues and the way I make prostrations and offerings to the Three Jewels. THere is greater awe and humility than before, greater awareness of a Buddha’s great compassion that motivated Him to accomplish all this.

  32. Ignacio Martinez on Aug 25, 2011 at 10:38 am

    Rinpoche thanks for the teaching you gave. I will make offerings to my Buddha statues.

  33. Nicholas on Aug 24, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    This is a very good teaching for people that want to set up altar and do offerings.

    Rinpoche mentioned the reason and how to do it. Very informative and beneficial to a lot of people & myself.

    As mentioned by Sock Wan that about touching the Buddha statue, I too do come across to a lot of people that very particular with it. But Rinpoche given a very valid reason to associate more with the Buddha.

    Thanks Rinpoche for this teaching.

  34. Sock Wan on Aug 23, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    This is very educational! We thought a buddha statue is very holy that we should not touch it. In contrary, we should touch it and make sure it is always clean because of the blessings we are able to get. The more I learn about Dharma, the more I like buddha statues.

  35. Yoke Fui on Aug 23, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving dharma teachings at every opportune time.

    I enjoyed the scenery as I listened to teachings
    on how to set up altar , offerings and be blessed by Buddha….how fortunate 🙂

  36. Raluca Anghel on Aug 22, 2011 at 6:10 am

    Thanks!Very nice and very pictoresque-especially the Buddha on your lap, it looks very natural and mesmerising at the same time…
    I would very much appreciate a future posting about the different types of merits, about which you mentionned in this video!

  37. madeline schreiber on Aug 22, 2011 at 12:40 am

    Dear Rinpoche – Thank you a million million for taking us on this journey. I had such strong deja vu that I forgot that I was not yourself on the river. My wooden Buddha is also from Thailand. It is just a humble tourist Buddha but it has been a part of my family and me for many years; it keeps great Dharma love around me every day. I will follow your advice; I can make my alter much more rich ! (I do the water offering of Jambhala every morning in my kitchen shrine. In Dharma, Madeline from Nova Scotia.

    With our integrity intact, life is less stressful and far less complicated. This is not applying in secular but also in the spiritual practice. If someone who does not have integrity will surely not earn respects from his peers.
    Integrity is very important in our life. It also a good habit for us to cultivate and take as reminder to ourselves that we need to keep hold to our promises in all aspect of chores we are doing.

    Chatral Rinpoche was one of the greatest meditation masters and most compassionate bodhisattvas in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. Chatral Rinpoche explains the purpose and benefit of saving the lives of endangered animals, especially those due to be slaughtered. Great advice by Chatral Rinpoche to develop compassion for all sentient beings . Save animals, save nature, as animal life is precious too. He lived as a humble yogi without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practiced what he preaches without compromise and was beloved , respected by many of all faiths throughout the Himalayan region. He was well known for his compassion for animals through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. He had liberate millions of fish animals and had encourages his student not to eat meat and drank alcohol. It’s a right choice to be on vegetarian , as more animals will be save. It be healthier for us, better for environment and kinder to be a vegetarian.
    Powerful saying by Chatral Rinpoche ……Eating meat in one’s diet is much different than eating flesh to liberate a being through supernatural powers. I am just an ordinary practitioner. I would be committing sin and I would be getting negative karma.
    Thank You for this sharing Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow.

    When i first read this article I did wonder too , how this ever happen. Somehow its real, a geological phenomenon where rocks move without human interference. Known as “sailing stones,” the rocks vary in size from a few ounces to hundreds of pounds. One of the world’s strangest phenomena is at Death Valley National Park in Inyo County, California, U.S. Till today, scientists could not have an answer to this strange phenomena where nobody have seen it moving at all.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Animal abuse frequently occurred in a number of area. Its heart breaking looking at the pictures of that extreme animal and neglect case of a dog in this article . The abused dog was packed in a plastic bag and thrown down a trash chute in the 22-story building. So inhuman for someone to do that . Not only that the dog was under un nourishment, thin, dehydrated and looks more than a skeleton. The condition was so bad that the dog needs a blood transfusion. Thanks to the maintenance workers who found Patrick in the neat of time. Looking at those pictures one will be definitely shocking to see his condition. Thankfully, that poor dog named Patrick is recovering well after been nursed by the hospital staffs. Its one of the worst cases of abuse they’ve seen. A dog is men best friends , shouldn’t be abuse or harm them. Give them love, care as if they are one of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for your wonderful thoughts of sharing the most heartwarming moments of people around the world. Some of the photos were really touching. I believe there are plenty of kind -hearted people around us with faith in humanity.

    Life is all about second chances, always try to care about others because none of us know what tomorrow may speaks. It’s so much true to say photos will make your day much more better with thousand words and I too enjoyed all the stories.

    The famous saying “What goes around, comes around”, karma in short is action and every action is preceded by our thoughts. Hence what we think continuously about something will eventually lead to action and the result. Its our mind that is responsible for our karma. Reading this post it has helped me and many of us to understand that we create our own reality or karma. I have book marked these so as i can read it time from time to remind myself. still plenty to catch up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings with folded hands.

    Chatral Rinpoche was a Dzogchen master and a reclusive yogi known for his great realization and strict discipline. Beautiful and meaningful poems, all I can say the poem is full of wisdom. All animals deserves a life free from fear and pain. They do have hearts to feel the pain, eyes to see and families to care, just like one of us. Animal should be the right to be here, long before we arrive. If only we understand we care for them , we will help and save them or we can liberate them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short and powerful teachings . The Four Noble Truths are the most basic formulation of the Buddha’s teaching. They are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree.
    To cease from evil, To do what is good. To cleanse one’s mind: This is the advice of all the Buddhas. Inspiring saying short yet powerful when we understand it . I will keep this in mind always.

    Meat contains many substances, chemicals, which causes harm to us in the long term and red meat shorten human lives. Large consumption of meat especially processed meat are likely lead to cardiovascular diseases ,cancer and a lot more.

    It is really great to see news write up of factual info like this as evidence and proof that eating meat causes more harm than good. Thank you very much for sharing the informative article.

    Equality before the law is the principle that each individual being must be treated equally by the law and that all are subject to the same laws of justice. Everyone will be given justice by treating them equally nor matter what race and religion or belief, you are. All are equal without any discrimination to equal protection of the law as well. After reading this article I do not agree with Paul Ryan what he commented on the conservative radio show ‘Morning In America’. Racism should not be brought up then, claimed that black men do not want to work and are satisfied with being poor. Remarks involving negative prejudices about people on the basis of race, would spark off misunderstanding and disharmony . It is extremely dangerous to label the rich or poor by skin colour or ethnicity.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Lama Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje has been recognized and enthroned as the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa. He is a scholar and meditation master, as well as painter, poet, songwriter and playwright. Listening to his message in Bodh Gaya, tells us all how he felt been under the supervision of Tibetan Leadership. He is then not able to perform well as a spiritual leader, as been used by the Tibetan Leadership involving politics. He spoke with courage, of his difficulties he is facing and own experienced of mistreated by the Tibetan Leadership. When politics get involved with religion it becomes complicated and it causes disharmony and harm to many. May Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje continue with his crusades of spreading dharma in the Kargyu lineage. May the differences between all karma Kagyu practitioners be restored and reconciliation .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Absolutely shocking Peruvian archaeologist and researchers found strange elongated skull in a massive graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals. Amazing discovery by them , has revealed that they may not have come from humans, but from a completely new species. Interesting these skulls are such a mystery, have yet to conclude the findings. Recording to reports on the geneticist’s findings said that it’s from a completely new human-like creature. Aliens do exist and we are not alone on this planet.

    Thank you for your thoughtful sharing. All we really need in life is real love not wealth or material goods. Real love is truly crazy, beautiful and brings so much of happiness, yet it’s one of the most confusing and heartbreaking things in this world.

    The reason it is so rare is because it is so misunderstood. We are not perfect but because we love, we speak, we respect, compromise, care, trust and do our best to make others become happier.

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

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about.
