Dear friends around the world,

It is very important to take good care of our pets because keeping a pet is equivalent to taking care of a child. Once we have decided to take care of them, it is our responsibility to make sure they are healthy and treated well.

For modern-day people, due to their working schedules, most of their pets are left alone at home. Therefore, when they are sick, it’s very hard for the pet owners to realise. No matter how busy we are, we must always take good care of our pets because they are living beings, they too feel love, loneliness, pain and so on.

I hope more pet owners who come across this article will start putting more attention onto their pets. May all the animals be well-taken care of and may they not need to suffer anymore.

7 Signs Your Dog Is In Pain And Trying To Hide It

International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management has deemed September Animal Pain Awareness Month. With the campaign slogan, “Their Pain Is Our Pain” vets are hoping to spread awareness about how our pets let us know they are in pain. When it comes to dogs, pain can be hard to detect. For dog’s wolf ancestors, showing signs of weakness made a wolf vulnerable, and being vulnerable was dangerous. Therefore, it’s in a dog’s nature to not purposefully reveal when they are feeling hurt, sick, or injured. Which is why it’s important for dog owners to be on the look out, and recognize the signs that signifies their dog is in pain.

1) Gait- Changes in a dog's walk, like limping, hobbling or favoring one leg over another, is a good indication that something is hurting your pet.

2) Energy- If your dog is acting more lethargic than usual it may mean he or she isn't feeling well.

3) Appetite- A dog disinterested in food either means the dog is sick, or hell has frozen over.

4) Eyes- Puppy dog eyes can do more than trick a couple of treats out of a pet owner, they can also be very telling. Bloodshot and dilated or constricted pupils can be a sign something is awry. A dog in pain also tends to squint a lot.

5) Demeanor- Some dogs can become defensive when they are hurting. If an otherwise friendly, well-behaved pup snaps at you, you may want to take him or her to the vet to get checked out.

6) Breath- Fast, shallow breaths or excessive panting for no discernible reason could be a sign your dog isn't feeling well.

7) Posture- If a dog is hunching over, fidgety, or particularly rigid it may mean they aren't feeling well.

Trust your gut and be sensitive to your pup. Noticing when your pup is in pain, and taking him or her to the vet could be the difference between life and death for your pet.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Pets improves their owners health from dogs to cats, horses to fish, pets come in all shapes and sizes. A number of people have many pets, others have only a few, while some choose to not have any. Having pets and taking care of them can sometimes be a tremendous amount of work, but the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. When pets are properly taken care of they provide unconditional love and support to their owners. Living with pets improves their owners health and happiness too. Owners also have important role to know those signs their pet in pain/ill where they can immediately take action.

    I have 2 dogs at home, and each time if they just lying down to welcome you home, you know they are not feeling well or might be unhappy. Animal can’t speak but if you care enough, you will notice their different from as usual and you need to take some action to comfort therm.

  4. Mingwen on Nov 13, 2019 at 7:43 am

    I hope people with animal friends around them can put more efforts for the well-being of their friends.

    As they are a small part of us, but you’re the whole world for them.

  5. Vivian Ong on Nov 13, 2019 at 1:26 am

    Honestly, the dogs in my hometown are rescued. Some of the signs above does matches especially when we first rescued the dog back home, the dog went to a corner to hide and was very timid. The dog was even scared to come out to have food although she was hungry and if she was not feeling too well she wouldn’t even want to move around. I guess that if anyone wants a pet, they really have to put in all the effort, love and care for the animal. Otherwise, better don’t think of having a pet or else the pet will suffer in the end.

  6. Tek Lee on Nov 13, 2019 at 12:52 am

    Animals are just like humans, be them dogs, cats, or even bigger animals like lions, bears, even elephants. They have feelings, they can fall sick too like human. Their behavior may be different from human, due to their born nature and the particular genes in their species, but from head to toe, they are made of every blood, flesh, vessels and nerve. Whatever we human can feel, they feel it too. But, they can’t talk. Just like human, when our body fall sick or some body part mulfunction, our body will show sign. So, being animals who can’t talk, we need to learn all these signs from their body, so that we can take very good care of animals. This article is very good, it provide informations that we didn’t know about dogs. Whether we keep a dog at home or not, it’s good to know all these.

  7. pammie yap on Nov 13, 2019 at 12:27 am

    It’s so sad when you are in pain and you can’t do anything nor speak up as an animal. They suffer silently and I dare not even imagine the discomfort they have to go through eve try waking minute. Even as human, I find it hard to tolerate pain especially when I am having a migraine. We have a dog and it pains us when we see him being unusually quiet and inactive. We know for sure he is not well and trying to rest and recuperate. Whatever it is, we must pay close attention and make sure they get the proper medical attention. We cannot take for granted as their life is as precious as ours.

  8. Andrea Lai on Nov 13, 2019 at 12:16 am

    It’s really difficult for us as humans to understand animal sufferings because they don’t speak our language and another point, was we don’t pay attention to their needs. Animals are just like us that needed love, care, attention and educated, like a child. Some people may think taking care of an animal is time consuming but in my opinion, to take care and educate it is a very good practice of nurturing patience, perseverance, compassion and even change a person perception.

  9. Pastor Henry Ooi on Nov 12, 2019 at 11:34 pm

    Just like humans, animals do have anxiety, fear, depression aside from physical signs that they are not well. Most times, those ‘owners’ of ‘pets’ rarely notice the symptoms until at a later stage when the sickness is at an advanced stage. I think people who have animals as their friend, companion, family are more observant because they spend more time with the animals. Hence the animals may be medically treated at an earlier time than other animals whose owners say they are busy with everything else in life except finding time for their pets. 

  10. Justin Cheah on Nov 12, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    I have 3 dogs in my house and yes I can tell when they are not feeling well. Notably is when they don’t have appetite. It’s ironic when they take their best way possible to express their problem to us humans knowing fully well we don’t understand their language.

  11. nicholas on Aug 24, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    Dog can’t tell us how they feel in our language but they can express in their own way if we willing to learn and understand. When we have them as our pets, it’s important to understand them. They will give us sign on what and how they feel. Dog will also learn and understand our feeling and what we trying to express. Sometime our interaction exclusive with only both of us will understand. It doesn’t matter as long as we care for them. Dog can be very loyal and they only afraid when we betray them because once we dump them they have no one to turn to and not easy for them to trust others when they being hurt. It’s important when we take them with us and care for them. It’s a commitment as we are dealing with living being that depend and count on us. I believe we don’t want to be abandon and so to them.

  12. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Mar 30, 2017 at 12:47 pm

    Dogs make the most lovable, loving and loyal of pets. WE should take care of them as we would our own child. Pets, like all living beings, feel love, loneliness and pain .If we have adopted a pet, we should take good care of them and take full responsibility for their health and well-being.

    It is not in a dog’s nature to purposely reveal that they are not feeling well, or are hurt or injured. Hence, we should keep a sharp look out for the following tell-tale signs.

    Keep a look out for when your pet limps or hobbles or favours one leg over the other; when he looks unusually lethargic or sapped of energy; when he suddenly loses his appetite for food;when his eyes are bloodshot, or dilated ; when he suddenly becomes snappy or defensive; when he pants a lot or his breath is shallow; or when he hunches over, is fidgety or suddenly becomes rigid.

    In short, be mindful all the time how your dog is behaving and walking and breathing. Examine him carefully if you have a hunch something is wrong.

    Keep the pet happy and let him keep you happy too!

  13. Stella Cheang on Mar 13, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    This is a very useful list now that we have a new family member in the form of a furry canine. We have to be watchful and sensitive towards our pet’s behavior because it cannot tell us when it is in pain or feeling uncomfortable. Thank you, Rinpoche for this article.

  14. Anne Ong on Feb 23, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    Thank you very much to Rinpoche, for giving us more tools and methods to check if our dogs and possibly pets are in distress. It is difficult to realise dogs are sick or in pain as they are not able to tell us verbally. So it is our responsibility to be aware and care enough to look out for them.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 11, 2016 at 7:27 pm

    Thank you very much to Rinpoche, for giving us more tools and methods to check if our dogs and possibly pets are in distress. We all need to know for certain that our pets are not in pain.

  16. Fong on Sep 7, 2016 at 11:53 pm

    This is great sharing. My dogs has gone through some of the symptoms described and I can say that their demeanor changed the moment the problem is taken care of.

    If we spend enough time with our dogs, we get to know their habits and normal behavior. So, we are in a better position to notice any change in them.

    They also like the attention and love we give them when we spend time with them. That’s why we have them as pets – we want their company and unconditional love too.

    So, bottom line is to spend time with and to get to know our dogs.

  17. CindyH on Sep 4, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.

    It is definitely very useful to be aware of these signs and its significance especially since our furry friends are not able to communicate their pain to us plainly. By knowing what to generally look out for, it will certainly allow us to detect the situation early and attend to it accordingly.

  18. Sofi on Aug 1, 2016 at 4:46 am

    It is difficult to realise dogs are sick or in pain as they are not able to tell us verbally. So it is our responsibility to be aware and care enough to look out for them. Thank you Rinpoche for this really helpful article on the 7 signs to look for. After reading, I have noticed that my dog had actually squinted her eyes a couple of times previously. Will definitely keep a closer eye on her if I see her eyes squinting again.

    Rinpoche’s care and compassion always extends beyond humankind to animals and others.

  19. Boon on Jun 2, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    People who are thinking of owning pets should read the ins and outs about owning them beforehand. It is important of having a fundamental knowledge of the needs of the animals that they are about to bring home, be it a dog, a fish or a bird. It is the owner’s responsibility to get to know them earlier and be ready to commit themselves on the tasks and work that will come with owning them. Do not bring them home and regret later.

  20. kb thapa on May 18, 2016 at 6:35 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the article it helps me to observe mumus and take care them better.. This is very important to remember that they can’t always cry out to us when in need. Dogs aren’t humans so they don’t can’t talk. The best thing we can do to keep them comfortable is to learn. Dogs display their pain in certain actions and behaviors that may seem subtle to us. Not everyone is a canine behavioral expert but these 7 symptoms will help us determine whether or not your loved one is in pain. we must learn to take away their pain always nobody like pain..

  21. samfoonheei on May 17, 2016 at 3:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche
    Thank you for sharing this interesting article.
    Its very helpful for me as recently i help to look after my daughter;s pet dog (a poodle and shih tzu) mixed.Ever since i have been looking after the pet dog i begin to love her as if she is part of our family.
    At least i could look up if she is in pain or not well.
    Thanks again for sharing so more dog owner will gain more awareness for their pets.

  22. Beatrix Ooi on May 12, 2016 at 10:42 am

    Dogs are one of the most loyal and lovable companions anyone could ever have, sometimes even way better than human companions. Dogs can’t talk and communicate with us, therefore it is very important to always keep a lookout of their condition so when the necessary actions can be taken when we detected there’s something wrong with our dogs.

    I have always been a dog lover ever since young, I used to live with my grandmother and uncle, we had a shih tzu and a schaunzer. Later they were given away because my uncle could no longer take care of them. Ever since then I have always wanted to adopt a dog but it was never allowed by my parents. I didn’t know much then, but I’ve come to realise that keeping a dog or any pet is not just a matter of hobby or whatsoever, the ‘hobby’ comes with great amount of responsibility.

    After my hamster died about 3-4 years ago, I have realised that keeping a pet is no playing matter, they are sentient beings too. I was upset when he died but I was even more upset with myself that I did not take good care of him.

  23. Edwin Tan on May 8, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for such informative article.

    It is definitely a good to know for all dog owners. The same can almost be translated for other pets.

    Thank you.

  24. wooishen on May 2, 2016 at 8:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for posting this article… For all pets owner must be responsible ..
    Pets can’t speak.. we need more time to observe and more care with them..

    Then we will know what’s happening on them…

    If have time have meal with them together… we will know know more..

    Be a responsible pet lover…. give more time accompany them…

    All the best…

  25. Lucas Roth on May 2, 2016 at 11:05 am

    This is a very helpful article for me and I will can use it in the present and future for all my dog companions and pets. This is also very interesting for me because there are so many indicators of dogs showing discomfort that it could change their vibe almost. I find this really cool because they can speak to show it but they will anyways.

    It is like humans actually, if we are in pain and not wanting to directly show it, we will fall under certain traits. We will have a attitude change and we will act differently. We are all living animals and we are not that different anyways as you can see.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article, I found it very interesting and useful. Also I found it thought-provoking.

  26. Pavara Lam on May 1, 2016 at 11:18 pm

    It is really important for dog owners to be aware of these signs as dogs are just like us and can feel pain. Can we bear any pain? No, that is the same for any other animals alike, they are living beings and thus have a mind which is able to feel pain, love, hate ETC ETC….

    Remember, always take care of your pets as you would a child as humans and animals are equal.

  27. Wah Ying on Apr 30, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    Seeing these indications, reminding me dogs is just like baby, who cannot talk to communicate their pain or feeling; so we adult and pet owner has to be alert and observant while taking care of them. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, it’s helpful 🙂

  28. Phng Keng Hwa on Apr 30, 2016 at 12:32 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for posting this article, it is really helpful and informative that can benefit both the owner and their pet.

    The owner- so that they can better care for their friend.

    And the pet- so that they can be better understood and cared for. 🙂

    I hope that many dog owners will see this and gain more awareness for their pets, so that their lives will become more compassionate and mindful. Thank you for posting this article to create the possibilities for these sentient beings. 🙂

  29. Jutika Lam on Apr 28, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the above tips above.

    It is really useful for dog owners to know about these signs because though the signs shown by the dogs may seem like nothing is wrong, it could be much more worse than it looks.

    We are usually busy with our daily lives, with work and tc that we sometimes are too busy to notice these small signs, this article is very informative in spreading awareness to dog owners who may not know of this.

    Understanding these signs that our dog might be in pain is relateble to humans, when we are sick we lose our appetite, we feel weak and etc.

  30. Uncle Eddie on Apr 25, 2016 at 5:05 pm

    It is said that, “All living beings are spiritual in essence. They are conscious with their feelings and alive in their hearts like every human being does, especially for the pet-owners, when they find their pets are sicked, injured, harmed or in great pain.” Thank you deeply Rinpoche, for your kind thought and compassion to awaken all pet-owners with this valuable and considerate article to lessen the sufferings and pains of all their pets, including the owners, before any unexpected bad happenings should arise, as I believe, “any pets’pain should also be the owners’pain too!”

  31. tohheToh Cheng See on Apr 25, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing this great informative article that will come in very useful for pet owners.

  32. Jason on Apr 25, 2016 at 2:44 am

    Is a inspiring article for those dog owners.Nowadays , people are busy with their daily life(family, work, children), the dogs or puppy might be ignored or abandon. Most of them treat the dogs as a “house security guard” so there is no fair treatment same as human beings.Actually , I am the one in this category but after I joined Kechara, I changed my attitude towards animals especially dogs and birds.
    I feel sympathy on stray dogs and will try to give foods to them. I hope Rinpoche’s article will inspire more pets or dog owner more awareness on their pets or dog daily life, please treat same as your family members.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing .
    With folded hands,

    Jason

  33. DavidFong on Apr 25, 2016 at 12:12 am

    感谢仁波切的分享, 这篇文章可以让想养宠物的大家明白养宠物是个很大的责任,因为他们是有生命的,他们是可以感受得到爱、痛苦、孤单、害怕等等。
    宠物也需要我们的关心和爱,也要把他当成家人一份孑。
    我希望有更多宠物主人看到这篇文章, 将会开始把更多的注意力集中到自己宠物的身上。
    愿所有的动物宠物都可以被细心的照顾。
    可能他们就不必再受苦了。

  34. Pema Thinley on Apr 24, 2016 at 4:59 pm

    Dear RInpoche,

    Thank you for this informative piece. I found it so helpful for people like me who know less about dealing with one’s pets. I think it opened my eyes to be sure of the conditions of dogs.
    The article would help lot of people out there _()_

    Beautiful and inspiring story which will touch the hearts of many . Been growing up in a family who against Tem Rinpoche for practicing Dharma is really hard and difficult one could imagined. How Rinpoche had the determination and will power to over come those obstacles he endured . Choosing his family and choosing Dharma , Rinpoche choose the later. Nor matter what happened Rinpoche somehow managed to practice Dharma under H E Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin his first Dharma teacher. It was because of Kensur Rinpoche that Rinpoche stayed with Geshe-la, studied under him before going to India to become a monk. Not only that later meeting root guru H H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.
    After years visiting Rashi Gempil Ling,the temple of Rinpoche’s childhood again and not been able to enter to temple Rinpoche offered prayers and three prostrations on the sidewalk remembering his guru’s kindnesses. Bittersweet moment Rinpoche felt not able to visit the temple again .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

    The three values of Olympism are excellence, friendship and respect. About coming together in the spirit of sportsmanship, the competition between countries from all over world. It wasn’t just the athletic ability, it was their moral courage competing in the Olympics as a once in a lifetime opportunity for them.
    Olympic hurdler, Liu Xiang from China a sporting idol had won after China’s first ever male track and field Olympic gold medal. In the last Olympics due his recurring injury had forced not able to perform well. Despite crashing on the first hurdle he continued with much pain hopped onto the track, kissed his final hurdle before he made it to the finishing line. His courage and determination had won the heart of many in the stadium and back home. He had showed an example of good sportsmanship and being able to lose gracefully.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    An animal testing is known as testing of live animal in any scientific experiment. A live animal is likely to suffer pain, distress and lasting harm in the procedure . Animals used in laboratories are deliberately harmed, and are usually killed at the end of the experiment. It is cruel and inhumane to experiment on animals, that alternative methods available to researchers can replace animal . I am sure there are other methods as now the world is so advance in their technology. Animals should not be used in research or to test the safety of products. Thankfully, the development of non-animal methods is growing, and fast. Due to innovations in science, animal tests are being replaced in areas such as toxicity testing, neuroscience and drug development.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these animals testing which should be banned.

    When we see the world through serene eyes, we generate peace wherever we go. A message of peace, respect and love towards others is at the heart of all of the major world religions. Listen with the intent to understand, be helpful, caring to others nor matter what race and religion or faith. Glad that a dialogue between Catholic and Buddhist religious and social action leaders coming together at Vatican.

    All suffering is in fact the result or fruit of negative emotions such as attachment, greed, jealously, pride, anger, and hatred. The five afflictive emotions are the source of suffering. Pride leads to unhappiness in long run. Letting go of these instead of clinging on to it will lead us to nowhere. A profound teachings …….as quoted The letting go is from clinging on to the afflictive emotions, the anger, jealousy, feelings of unjust treatment, which all stems from our self-cherishing mind. Remembered the kindness the Guru has shown us and what we will never give up nor matter what happened. I am still plenty to learn.

    Heard stories from senior students of Rinpoche about assignment that had changed their lives. Reading this post tells us more through the eyes of Joy Kam. Some understandings learned from it. The little assignments which many have taken it for granted actually helps to change our karmic situation. Rinpoche wanted us to realize later on but not now from a particular assignment. What Rinpoche did there is always a reason behind it which many might not understand till later on. Rinpoche knows best, always cares for everyone and help us to improve, grow in our spiritual path. And also helped us to purify certain karma . Interesting read

    Beautiful and famous story of a learned master Geshe who loved butter . Even though he loves butter so much yet as he has kept his commitments, and engaged in Dharma studies, doing sadhana and retreats he is able to ascend to Kechara Paradise. Wow ……the Geshe’s attachment was transformed into a powerful aspiration to take rebirth in a Pure Land.
    Butter tea is a traditional Tibetan drink and it is severed in all household has become a necessity. There are many benefits drinking butter tea such as at high altitudes , boost immunity and energy ,an appetite suppressant and so forth.
    The goal of any spiritual person is to strive towards attaining self-realization. We should be free from anxiety and distress, unencumbered by frivolous affections, and liberated from specious attachments. Nothing in life is permanent. Keeping our commitments, and always engaged in Dharma activities. Once we dominate ourselves through consciousness, the attachments disappear. Attachment comes from the accumulated past. The things we are attached to are no more than shadows of the past. The story of the Geshe indeed an inspiration and example for us .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this beautiful post.

    Foie gras is a specialty food product made of the liver of a duck or goose. Well its as an expensive, and luxury foods for some and only sold in high-end restaurants. Eating foie gras is unhealthy for humans. If one have seem how it was make , one will definitely not eating it. Duck or goose are kept in small crowded cages cramped together. This is accomplished by force-feeding corn to the animals using a feeding tube. Can imagine how cruel, pumping pounds of grain and fat into their stomachs causing the livers to swell and abdomens become distended. They mistreated and tortured inside foie gras factories all over the world. Now more countries came to realised the painfully method and begin to ban the practice of foie gras production. Nothing can describe such barbaric practice nor can such practice ever be justified. Celebrities like Roger Moore and so forth are now using their fame to speak up for the good of others. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness.

    Watching this rare video of Oracle tells all. Its fantastic indeed. I have not seem one yet hopefully in future. Consulting oracles has been practised since ancient times. In Tibetan Buddhism the practice is special unique and even till to this days consulting oracles continues to play a major roles in the lives of practitioners. Oracles serve as a guide for Tibetans in political decisions, predictions about natural forces, healing and so forth. They are also sometimes used as protectors. It was the oracles that gave the Dalai Lama specific advice on how to escape Tibet during the Chinese invasion in 1959. Many oracles used to be present in Tibet, but their numbers have decreasing as a result of various factors. Interesting watch….a rare video.

    Is it right? Well its not right most of us would said it. Life is life’s greatest gift. The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Love the animals , they are one of us. No matter how few possessions we own or how little money we have, loving wildlife, caring and nature will make us rich beyond measure. Animals are our friends and companions. Choosing vegetarians on our menu is the right choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, a reminder for us to give love and care to all animals. Do not harm them ,go meatless at least .

    Feeling sad watching the video of how those poor innocent cats were cramped into cages en route to Guangdong. The cats, trapped in cramped cages on the truck, where they would be sold to restaurants as meat. Guangdong is one of the few areas of south-eastern China where eating cat meat is somewhat accepted. Cats are raised and collected in rural areas by villagers for human consumption.
    Michael Zhao an independent film maker make a trailer video to bring global awareness of animal cruelty. After coming across an 80 years old Grandma Ding, a lone rescuer in Beijing, rescued over 100 cats. Despite her age, she took care of those cats all by herself with occasional help from the outside. Her story had inspired Michael to do something in saving the lives of those pets. Though there are movements and animal groups that seek bans on the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat, a robust market for the animals that might otherwise be pets still exists. Interesting read.

    Having a dream house is everyone of us would love to own. Unknowingly land on a dream house that turns out to have a dark history, will invoke our hidden worst fears. Its important to check the history of the house, previous owner and so forth , just to be sure its not haunted after all. Well we might not know if the house still contains unbelievably dark energy in it. It can actually happen unknowingly buying them. Most people have reported hauntings in their homes after buying it. We are fortunate to have met Rinpoche and whereby we have Dorje Shugden to rely upon for protection. Haunted spirits might have trapped in a non-physical form in the lower realms. They are the souls of deceased humans, been trapped and we could help to release in way. Doing prayers by Pastors and dedicate to them. Interesting videos.

    An interesting read…. Stephen William Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author where he had contributed to the understanding of gravity, black holes and cosmology were truly immense. Stephen Hawking’s explanation that the universe was spontaneously created out of nothing, according to the laws of science. What he mentioned indeed had me open my mind all about the universe. Most scientists and astronomers had used the Big Bang theory to explain how the universe began. He was a highly creative scientist, pushing past and would be able to explain, using physics, the birth of the universe itself. Amazing…..great knowledge. Interesting read , I have yet to understand better and many more to learn.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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

    4 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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
