什么是火供法会(JINSEK)?

(此为2013年,在克切拉禅修林进行火供法会前的一段开示,由弟子抄写,后再译成中文。)

一般来说,无数不同本尊的存在,是基于佛菩萨示现的各种能量、觉悟及慈悲。这些本尊会为了某个人或某组人而专门在特定的时间化现。

若某个人恳请、祈祷,或是人们在某个时间面对困难,佛菩萨会以特定形式示现——颜色、形状、大小、姿势、表情,以及手持一些必要的法器,以克服、降伏及净化那些特定的业果或是某个人的疾病。因此,一旦菩萨示现之后,当人们进行该法会,该法会的传承由此开始。而一个本尊也可以有上百个化身,有很多种不一样的法会。各个法会因不同的传承而或有少许异处,但是法会的功效是一样的。差别只在你属于哪个传承。

在众多法会中,火供法会是被认作是所有法会之首。在藏传佛教的所有法会中,火供法会是最有力的。其目的基本上是为去除所有障碍及障碍的染污。火供法会能净化一般的现象、一般的不纯净的行为,尤其在修补我们所违背的承诺和戒誓上更有效。这些东西都是造就我们负面的疑虑、妄想及邪见的有力因素。我们之所以会对一些有利于我们的东西,比如佛法,有很多的邪见及妄想,乃因为那些过去我们所违背的承诺和戒誓。要净化这一些修行上的杂质,若能持续以坚定的信念及清净的三昧耶进行火供法会就可做到。

进行火供法会需要一些特别的原料。特别的坛城图也将画在进行火供法会的场地。火供法会分成息、增、怀、诛四种。息灾火供能去除恶运,以及去除对我们的性命、智慧、财富、佛法的增长——闻思修带来影响的障碍。息灾火供能做到这一些,或是直到我们自己净化恶业之前,此法会能延迟问题的出现的时间。增益火供则能增加资粮、健康、寿命、智慧及修行的财富,尤其是佛法的闻思修。怀爱火供能扭转恶劣的情景,变成我们所希望的那样,只要我们有良善的发心。最后一种是诛除火供。诛除火供是在息灾火供、增益火供及怀爱火供对我们无效之后才进行的,而那三种火供法会之所以对我们无效,乃因为我们有非常深重的业力。于是我们以愤怒法,来克服阻扰我们的成长、内外财富的增长、健康及修行的障碍及疾病。

好比说一些弟子过去进行了一些法会及火供法会,以延长他们的寿命,或是延长父母的寿命。法会做完之后,你可以看到法会的功效。上师能做出这样的建议是多么的慈悲,而弟子因他人的福祉而跟从上师的指示也是慈悲的。当弟子们为父母进行火供法会,父母所面对的问题能获得缓解,他们的寿命得以延长,在一些情况下,火供法会甚至救了他们一命。于是我们应该时时记得上师的慈悲,也应该时时尝试广为分享佛法,让其他人也能接受那样的帮助和慈悲。因此,若如法进行火供法会,再配合上清净的三昧耶,它对治多种情况都是非常非常有效的法会。

过去我们见证火供法会、长寿法会、朝圣法会或持诵法会给我们的家人、朋友、亲人及子女们多大的助益。我们知道有不少小朋友因法会的加持而顺利通过考试的个案。我们也知道有父母亲因法会而保住性命、寿命得延长,或是健康大有进步的个案。千万别忘记这种慈悲,因为能有人有这样的能力透过法会帮助我们的父母实属难得,因为要成就这一切,得要有一个佛教道场、团体、僧伽及人们共同创造一个空间——一个供人们传授、修习及延续这些殊胜有力法门的地方。于是铭记这种慈悲是极为重要的。

火供法会也专门进行以净化一般的现象、一般的不纯净的行为、毁坏的誓言、不吉祥的境况,以及去除阻扰我们修行的恶业。火供法会供养四个主要对象。首先是供养佛菩萨、菩提萨垛、本尊、勇父、空行母、阿罗汉及高成就的阿罗汉。第二份供养是献给世间护法及当地有高道行的众生,而第三份供养献给所有众生,最后一份则献给鬼魂及饿鬼,因为它们经常饥饿、口渴、孤零零四处游荡,于是我们给它们暂时的缓解。

普遍上进行火供法会会用上13种主要材料。不同的传承在材料上或有少许的不同,但是意义上还是大致相同的。接着我们怎么做呢?我们起火,净化它,然后迎请火神“阿耆尼”(Agni),供养他,征求他的允许用火。我们并不是向他祈祷,但只是向他征求同意。随后我们请走阿耆尼,接着我们从火中观想某个本尊或是护法。于是,如果该火供法会供养的是白度母,我们观想白度母,若是金刚瑜伽母或大威德金刚,或是一位佛教护法,就做相应的观想。因此,若说我们的供养对象是一位佛教护法,我们迎请佛教护法到火中。这是因为护法神坚不可摧,其心识体性乃圆满证悟。护法安处在火中张嘴接受我们经过净化的供品:已溶化的牛油、芝麻子、长寿茅草、米、米与奶酪、吉祥草、芥子、带壳青稞、无壳青稞、扁豆、麦及树枝。最后这些材料将混在一起。

这13种材料会一个接一个地供上。我们会持诵该本尊的心咒,比方说佛教护法金甲衣护法,我们持诵“嗡玛哈呀叉扎梭哈”,然后我们将材料(供品)放入火中或是说直接将那些材料放入金甲衣护法嘴中。这个法会极具力量,也非常有效。第一个供品,我们供上象征着寿命、资粮及繁荣增长的已溶化的牛油。因此,如果我们因父母患病而进行火供法会,在法会上我们会给某个佛菩萨或本尊供上大量的牛油,象征父母寿命的增长。当我们全心全意修行,我们也是在帮助自己的父母,因为唯有佛法能改变他们的业果,让事情有好转。因此我们能给佛菩萨或本尊供养大量的已融牛油。这也是为什么供品应该越大量越好。在延长人们寿命这件事情上是无限制的,于是若我们为自己的至亲——伟大的父母亲、子女——或是任何人,甚至是你的宠物进行火供法会,每当我们观想牛油为清净的供品,后把这个供品供入本尊的又中时,法会将能帮助增长他们的寿命。因此,人们若能在一年里进行至少一次或两次的火供法会,不管是为了以上所述的哪个原因而做,那都非常好。

第二个供品,我们供上芝麻子。芝麻子象征去除“不善”、恶业、损坏的三昧耶、负面思维、恶语及恶行。我们或许会想自己可以任意说话、做事,如果有人对我们说不,他们是在侵犯我们,他们在审判我们或是他们武断。这不是对的。世上所有的佛法书籍都教导我们,我们需要净化什么,佛法书籍都教导我们三毒的过失——痴、嗔、贪——这三毒如何折磨我们,给我们制造问题。忠言逆耳,这些教诲并不是在批评你,实为在给你智慧。因此我们不应该在听到这些教诲后就说“不要审判我”或“不要批评我”,因为你是在制造如此的界限,好让自己不必听闻事实或是逃命面对事实。于是,透过供养芝麻子,我们去除阻碍我们内心感知、了解、实践智慧,以及阻碍我们内心以智慧为为人处世之基础的“不善”。是智慧的力量才能净化我们那颗以无明为基础来接收、聆听及接近智慧或接近一位上师——佛法。即便我们接近佛法,那也不一定意味我们会实修,因为我们会面对阻扰我们实修佛法的业力。于是供养净业的芝麻子其实也象征净化阻扰我们证得更高成就、更高的思维、更高阶的修持及成长的所有“不善”。

接下去的供品是长寿茅草。供养此类之草,我们能延长人的寿命。我们透过避免做出恶行,然后做出与其相反的善行来延长寿命。我们让自己处于一种有正面思维、行为、良友及讯息的环境,那么我们会做出相应的正面工作以利益自身及他人。接着我们供上米粒。供养米粒是有增加福德资粮之意。当我们有越越多的福德资粮,我们对佛法也就越有良好的理解。当我们有越良好的理解,我们就有更少的困惑,当困惑少了,我们就能在修行上越是精进,进而能给他人带来更多利益。

随后我们供上米与奶酪,寓意增加大乐——“格瓦千波”(藏语音译)。供养米与奶酪有着增加世俗之喜乐、灵修之福乐之意,以及证得如圆满证悟的佛陀之大乐。接着我们供上吉祥草,它象征着庇佑——防护来自上下及四面八方(十方)的负面侵扰。接下来我们给本尊供养芥子以除去障碍——阻碍我们目标的障碍,好比说在克切拉禅修林,我们想给众生造福,我们得获取各种准证、完成一切的建筑工作及取得进展等。

供上带壳青稞,我们造下增加财富、物质资源、必需品、食物、衣物、产物、水,以及我们需要用来利益众生的一切东西。它也可以增加我们身体为达致健康状态,好让我们能利用自己的身体来利益众生而所需的任何一个东西。供养带壳青稞象征财富的增长。接着我们供上无壳青稞,象征取得快速的成就。供养无壳青稞,不管是哪一个修持、持诵心咒、禅修、诵经、研读经典、冥想、佛法实修,这种供养能让修行人快速取得这些修行的成就,也造下取得快速之成就的因。

接下去的第十个供品是扁豆,这种供养象征取得力量,针对这个,堪殊仁波切曾说叫“杜·千波” (藏语音译)。此供养象征赐予修行人身语意的力量——无有畏惧地宣说佛法,不管我们是如何地被批评。除此,它也象征拥有强壮的体魄,不易患病或轻易地遭受负面元素的侵扰。它更象征拥有强大的意志,即不轻易言弃、不挑别人或是情况的过失,或者把错归咎到别人头上。当我们失败了、放弃或有疑惑的时候,我们有不把错归咎到别人头上的力量。我们的疑惑来自自己不道德的行为,或自己所作出不道德的行径,后还辩解我们的行为是道德的,于是我们便为自己造下经常有负面想法及思绪的因。总结而言,扁豆象征获得身语意的力量。

接下去的供品是麦,麦象征从病中痊愈。这里所指的病是指我们必须净化、疗愈的身与心,以及未来的病痛。随后我们供养经过净化及涂上牛油的树枝。供养这些树枝,象征证得高成就——更高的心智、更高的思维,以及能达到利益众生之效的崇高地位。最后的供品是参合的材料,象征增加智慧、佛法的研读、佛法的理解力,以及克服自身缺点的力量。它也象征增加修行、成佛的能力。

佛法的存在意义,是让众生证得佛果。我们可以把所听闻的佛法、上师所传授之法想成是责骂、批评、武端的评论,又或者把佛陀所宣说之法,还有上师对法的解说为一种智慧之说。这是我们必须自己去衡量的东西,因为我们不管是被给予哪一种劝告,那些劝告都一定会跟我们的投射及贪执有所冲突;不管我们是被给予哪一种佛法的教诲,哪一种智慧或知识,我们经常都将它们视为我们贪执心的敌人,于是我们在心中筑起了防卫墙,我们变得愤怒,说人们是在武端地评论自己,但事实并非如此。所有的佛法书籍及佛法老师本来就是教授你佛法的。他们本来就是赐予你佛法的。上师怎么可能鼓励我们沉溺、造下恶业、酗酒、抽烟、沉迷女色、伤人、说妄语和偷盗呢?我们的上师不可能这么做。我们的上师理应就不这么做,也不会这么做。因此,如果上师传授我们佛法,上师不是我们的敌人,上师反而是我们的良友,只是有的时候,去到贪执的面前,我们却将上师看成是敌人,但事实并非如此。

因此,上师不是我们的敌人。如果我们真的要说上师是我们的敌人,佛法才是。上师负责宣说佛法。打个比方:如果一个讯息透过一个光碟播放器传达给我们,然后我们因不喜欢那讯息而将播放器砸坏了。这不是播放器的错。该光碟播放器是你听闻佛法的载体。你把光碟砸坏也于事无补,因为那片光碟甚至是该播放器并非该讯息,该讯息,来自将讯息说出来的人。将讯息说出来的人是基于本身的知识或得来的智慧而将其传达予你。因此,砸坏该播放器的行为,根本是于事无补。同理,如果我们批评、针对上师或是道场做恶意的批评及给他们制造麻烦,因为我们不喜欢他们告诉我们的事,我们觉得那些话都是在审判我们,这是错误的想法。为什么呢?因为那些我们不喜欢的话是让我们正视自身贪执的东西,而贪执正正就会让我们造业,且那些业终究会回报在我们身上。

佛陀是不会有误的,因此,那些话是在赐予我们智慧。那些话给予我们一把衡量事物的尺,好让我们检视、观察和理解事物。于是,当帕绷喀仁波切、赤江仁波切及宋仁波切在给寺院上千名僧人浩瀚无边的佛法开示时,他们也是以这样的方式传授佛法。他们告诉我们什么是错的,他们告诉我们自己的每个一念头里面都是什么,他们解说什么是邪见,他们告诉我们的贪执是什么,他们告诉我们关于因果及后果有哪些。我们没把这些教诲视为一种对自己的审判,我们把这些话看成是智慧。也正是因为,火供上我们最后供养的是参合的材料,这个供养象征拥有参透这些教诲的能力及加持,因为这些教诲是我们证得圆满证悟之道次第的一部分。

如上述的原因,如果我们持续进行火供,所得的效果将非常好,能量也非常大。接着,当13种材料都供上了之后,我们向佛菩萨及本尊——尤其是我们迎请进入智慧火堆之中的本尊——做最后的八供。当这一切做完之后,我们请各个本尊回到净土,再向火神阿耆尼做最后的供养,感谢他允许我们用火做法会。在法会的结尾,我们做回向,并让火堆继续燃烧,燃烧时间尽可能长久一些。我们不为了让火继续燃烧而加入任何东西,也不把火熄灭。如果天空降下雨水,那也没关系。我们可以让火烧到第二天再做清理。火供法会留下的灰可当成舍利子,可放入佛塔中,或佩戴它,或撒在地面上、撒在植物上,或是用来加持土地。主持这场火供法会的人必定已获该本尊的灌顶,并且每日不间断地修习仪轨,也完成过完整的闭关,以及曾主持该本尊的火供法会。如果是这样,当他们一次又一次地进行火供法会,效果将非常好。

因此,在我的要求下,我们美丽的克切拉禅修林见证了这几场火供法会,以回向给我们的功德主、朋友们、志工们及弟子们——他们有的已经捐出上千上万的金钱,付出上千上万小时的时间,上千上万的劳力如清理、烹饪等工作。赞助不仅仅是金钱上的,而是每一个人曾经的付出。火供法会的功德也回向予我们供上的13种材料的个别象征能成真,也回向予我们目前的弟子,以及未来将来临的弟子。这些火供法会的进行,也是为了所有辛勤的弟子,以期他们的佛法、学习、禅修、修习,尤其是佛法的实修能增长。目前我们在克切拉禅修林的这片土地进行了很多的火供法会,希望将来来到这里的人会受到加持,感受到宁静,获得疗愈及智慧,并且会实修佛法教诲,进而培养内在的更高成就,最后获得圆满证悟

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow again with folded hands.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

    A beneficial practice to do in our daily Sadhana which I truly love it. I have been doing this Kawang practice daily without miss. It helps to clear our obstacles and purify our karma with the correct visualization. By purifying our karmas as our merits increase as well. When done consistently, kawang practice will remove obstacles that threaten our Dharma practice. It also create conducive conditions both externally as material necessities and physical health, and internally within our mind. Amazing benefits indeed one should not miss. All thanks to Rinpoche to be here in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing this post for readers to know better.

    A précised sharing by Rinpoche regarding the banning of the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden by Tibetan Leadership. Reading and watching those videos will explain all about the ban controversy. Many highly attained Lamas had for the last 400 years, has been relying on Dorje Shugden. But as claim by the Tibetan leadership the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden is evil spirit and a minor practice. They claimed that whoever practice Dorje Shugden will to the three lower realms. All these were not true just an excuse to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice. There were many incarnations of Lamas coming back again and again. Yet the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice of Dorje Shugden. They said those Masters would take rebirth in the three lower realms. Not logic at all. As in this article one could read more prominent Dorje Shugden practitioners of the last 400 years are back again. Interesting read one should not miss.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing

    We are not alone after-all. Spirits or unseen beings is everywhere. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eyes. A majority of people are believers in the existence of some kind of spiritual being. I do believe they do exist. Experiencing their existing in our sleep is scary some sort what happened to Pastor David. Many of us usually experience of feeling like we being touched or feeling pressure on their chest. It’s like something or someone is holding them down. Interesting read this paranormal experienced by Pastor David.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kim for this sharing.

The Unknown

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

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian
