Bangladeshi Buddhist monks feed hundreds of poor Muslims during Ramadan

 

DHAKA (AFP) – A Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh is serving food to hundreds of poor Muslims during Ramadan, in a rare example of social harmony between the religions in the South Asian nation.

Dharmarajika, in the capital Dhaka, has become a hit on social media since it started distributing daily food packs for Muslims who break their fast during the Islamic month at sunset, known as Iftar.

“Buddhism taught us that serving humanity is the ultimate religion. We are feeding the poor Muslims who cannot afford to buy proper meals to break their fast,” Suddhananda Mahathero, the head monk of the monastery, told AFP.

When AFP visited on Monday evening, more than 300 Muslims were waiting at the gate of the monastery in Dhaka’s Basabo neighbourhood to receive some Iftar delicacies.

“I can eat some good food served with love and care,” said 70-year-old Ms Amena Khatun, who added that she had walked several kilometres to get there.

As a young monk distributed tickets to hungry Muslims, police were on hand to ensure the process remained orderly.

“This is such a wonderful example of religious harmony: showing respect and affection to the fasting neighbours without thinking of the difference of religions,” said policeman Asad Uzzaman.

Muslims make up around 90 per cent of Bangladesh’s 160 million population, with a tiny community of Buddhists residing mostly in the country’s southeastern districts bordering Myanmar.

In September 2012, tens of thousands of Muslims vandalised and torched nearly a dozen Buddhist temples in the south of the country following allegations that a Buddhist man had desecrated the Quran.

Many Muslims took to social media to thank the Dharmarajika monastery for their food distribution, posting photos on Facebook of the yellow-clad monks handing out supplies. Others praised the monks on Twitter.

“I really appreciate the initiative and thank them,” Mr Nur Hossain, a banker, told AFP.

The monastery was established in 1949 and is home to more than 700 orphans who study at a free school it runs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is nice to see the Buddhist monks giving food to the poor Muslim people in Bangladesh during their break fast. It shows to everybody in the world that by helping one another without agenda then everyone can live in peace and harmony.

    With folded palms,

    These monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka are really the epitome of Buddha’s teachings on kindness, compassion and equanimity. They show that it is possible to live in harmony with respect and harmony. They did not see the people as of any particular caste or faith or religious inclination. They saw the people as people in need of love and food.

    This is a great message especially in the holy month of Ramadhan when one of the message is one of love, harmony and empathy.

    Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu for this sharing.

    As the saying goes, “actions speak louder than words”.In spiritual practice, we were taught that as we do more and more spiritual practice, transformative spiritual practice, we will see our mind become light. We will see our mind become brighter, happier and we see that we accept things. We open up our heart to Dharma and apply it. Things that we are not able to do, things that we find unbearable, we will be able to bear them, and do a lot of things naturally. So when we do Dharma well on the basis “for the others”, we will not be disappointed, sad, simply let go, or give up. A growing sense of universal responsibility will open up in our minds like our Guru Rinpoche, always has done. Universal responsibility, will bring happiness to all beings, like our centre do, the purpose of which has always been, still is, and always will be established, i.e. to help and be beneficial to all beings. Such is pivotal and necessary in our organisation, Kechara and to every individual too if possible! As Suddhananda Mahathero, The Head monk of the Monastery has told AFP, “Buddhism taught us that serving humanity is the ultimate Religion. We are feeding the poor muslims who cannot afford to buy proper meals to break their fast”. As from another quote of Truth which said, “COMPASSION TRANSCENDS BARRIERS, CONVENTION AND LABELS”. Om Mani Padme Hung.

    It is so heart warming to see these pictures. Kindness and compassion should not be limited by race, religion and skin colour. There should be no barrier as we are all human. I hope everyone will live in peace and harmony irregardless of religion and belief.

  5. samfoonheei on Jun 18, 2016 at 8:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful article about a Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh serving food to hundreds of poor Muslims during Ramadan.Religious harmony plays a important part in our society. Helping and giving out to the poor regardless of race and of religion ….that is how the world should be. Be kind and compassionate to everyone so as to live happily.
    Thanks again.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article. There are many religions in the world and all of them have their unique teachings and values. Most of the good religions promote love ,kindness and peace. To me, religion is just a label. The teachings of love, kindness and peace is the true religion.

    Sometimes, these labels get over our head. We keep fight about which one is the best religion and who is right and who is wrong. We tend to forget that the very purpose of religion. It became a game of power and benefits. Then, the true practitioners will suffer.

    Humbly,
    Chris

  7. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 19, 2016 at 3:25 am

    Compassion transcends barriers, conventions and labels.

  8. Chris Chong on Dec 12, 2015 at 1:09 am

    Dear Rinpoche ,

    This post had taught me the true religion that everybody should practice is compassion and kindness towards other beings. Religion is just a label and if we distil the teaching of all those religion into it’s essence, we will find that they all teach the same thing which is compassion and kindness. We should treat people from different religion with love and compassion instead of judging them.

    Chris

  9. Lucas Roth on Aug 31, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    This post just reminds me that happiness and comapassion all are not limited by race, religion or gender. Everybody there is happy, even the ones giving. That’s rare to see these days. That is how the world should be, happy. We should all practice compassion.

    The other thing this post shows is what compassion is related to and what you need to truly have compassion, and one is forgiveness because there were conflicts between the two religions but the Buddhists forgave them and wants to make peace and the Muslims are more than willing. The other thing is generosity as to give to someone is very good and it practices selflessness which is good for your life because if you can live with less and need less for yourself. It is a happier and easier life.

    The final thing that these people have. They have one special ability. That is the ability to see out. To want to make peace. The right mindset and a good one, they look to others for happiness and they do not look in for self satisfaction only and eu care for others and are selfless. Not just all themselves. Sometimes selflessness is hard to find in today’s generation which have so much to indulge into that they indulge too much and lost selflessness by habit. This post should set and example to everyone because it shows the right way to resolve something. With peace and the right mindset with compassion,generosity,forgiveness and selflessness.

  10. Patsy on Jul 21, 2015 at 9:20 pm

    Compassion through action regardless of race, religion or culture. These Buddhist monks set a very good example that hunger knows no barriers. They do not discriminate and are mindful and respectful of others’ beliefs.

    All religion teach us o be kind and compassionate. We should have mutual respect for all religion and not put anyone down even though our view may differ.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this inspiring and heart warming post.

  11. Pavara Lam on Jul 15, 2015 at 10:45 pm

    It is really good to see that everyone is now learning kindness.
    No matter what religion we practice the number one thing that matters is kindness.
    Sometimes difference in religion can cause disputes and violence, but here we have Buddhist handing out food to muslims totally free of charge! This is definately not something you will see everyday.
    We must encourage kindness and peace everywhere.
    Whatever religion we practice kindness is what matters most,be we Christians, Jews, Hindus ETC ETC…

  12. Julien Roth on Jul 13, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    I think this is very good 🙂 its nice to see people being to compassionate and kind to one another.

    Just like what the beginning of the news report has said, this event represents peace within the religion in Bangladesh. In the past, there have been many incidents where the difference of religion has caused violence among societies. So by seeing events such as this, its good to know that mankind is changing for the better.

    Also i just wanted to say that although in the past Muslims vandalised and torched many Buddhist temples, Buddhist monks still came to forgive the Muslims for committing this act. It is not easy to let go of something like that. I respect the Buddhist monks in Bangladesh and i hope they continue to spread their compassion.

  13. Pastor Adeline on Jul 13, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    All religions teach us to be kind, compassionate and caring regardless. When we look into the similarities of all religions, we see so much we have in common with each other. There are some differences in the teachings but that should not stopped us from seeing the bigger picture and create peace from within!

    Thank you for your inspiring good example!

  14. Li Kim on Jul 12, 2015 at 1:34 pm

    This is such a beautiful article. Religious harmony is crucial in today’s degenrage times. People are already having dispute over everything that will ignite human emotions and sentiment. We don’t need any further religious conflict and disharmony. I rejoice that despite conflict merely 3 years ago, it’s left behind and kindness and compassion prevails over anger and hatred.

  15. LOW KHJB on Jul 12, 2015 at 12:15 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the story on Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh is serving food to hundreds of poor Muslims during Ramadan.
    We are glad that the monastery there is actualising their dharma knowledge into practical application.Through their genuine expression of compassion and generosity they gain world recognition .
    Respect and praise comes naturally when they did it without any selfish agenda.
    We certainly hope that more religious organisation would display similar type of activity to narrow the gap of misunderstanding between them and cultivate religious harmony.Which is so need during these dharma degenerated times.

  16. Shelly Tai on Jul 11, 2015 at 3:14 pm

    All these monk who distribute food to the poor muslim really put Buddha practice into action, we have to set this as an example because we usually will only be kind to our own race we have strong discrimination but look what this monk are doing they show really good example as a buddhist monk .

  17. Wah Ying on Jul 10, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    This is such a heart warming news to read and share on especially with so much pain and sufferings occur all over the world related to religions and faith…

    This is a good example for all by showing with mutual respect, people with different faith or culture, all can enjoy harmony and happiness.

  18. JENNIFER YUEN on Jul 8, 2015 at 10:25 pm

    A heart-warming article to read! Kindness is extended regardless of religion. An act of a true and sincere spiritual practitioners. Thank you for sharing the happening in Bangladesh Rinpoche!

  19. Matthieu on Jul 8, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    Thankyou for sharing Rinpoche.

    Sharing of religion and also being able to experience others’ religions I believe is very important. Every religion is based on something virtuous. So if we can learn from others, then others can learn from us; this will be beautiful and is the way forward. We are all humans who have the same needs. Ive always had the idea of joining the Muslim fasting month, to perhaps learn things that I couldn’t learn elsewhere, and also to show that our human needs transcend religious boundaries that have been wrongly created. We must walk with our brothers and sisters who are oppressed or in a situation of suffering, only then can we truly speak for ourselves and for them.

    I hope you are well Rinpoche 🙂

  20. Jutika Lam on Jul 8, 2015 at 11:19 am

    This example of monks of a Buddhist monastery distributing Iftar meals to poor Muslim people is a powerful example to the world that everyone around the world, no matter what religion they may practice, no matter what their skin colour may be or no matter what race they may be… we can all unite together, help each other and live in harmony with each other without having to fight each other, argue with each other, kill each other and get in to all other disputes just because we don’t agree with each other’s religion, practices and customs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart warming post.

    The Rain Stopper

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

    It is extremely worrying to know that parts of America such as Texas and Florida are experiencing the impact of powerful hurricanes. The horrendous natural disasters have destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, offices and facilities in these areas. Sadly however, during such disasters, animals are often the first ones to be left behind, and saving the life of a human takes precedence over the life of an animal. The same thing happened during the recent Hurricane Harvey in Florida. But this time around, what was most disturbing was the fact that animals were left behind to die during the disaster.

    The helpless animals, such as dogs in this case, have had to suffer immensely during the storms. As can be seen in the article, there is an uproar regarding dogs being tied up during the hurricanes which made it impossible for them to escape. In fact, the authorities may have encouraged people to leave their pets behind in some areas, but they should not have been tied up and left to suffer from the strong winds and rain. No one wants to be put in such a position, and neither do animals.

    The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported sightings of Lizard Man vary from scaly humans to large bipedal lizards, small dinosaurs and everything else in-between.

    It is no surprise that many theories have been put forward in an attempt to crystallise the undefined nature and origin of the Lizard Man. Essentially, there are two leading theories – one based on evolution and the other on extra-terrestrials.

    Buddha Shakyamuni gave three reasons as to why He had chosen Kushinagar (in today’s northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh) to pass away:

    It was the proper venue for teaching the Maha-Sudassana Sutra (Story of the Great King of Glory).
    Subhadda, whom Buddha Shakyamuni felt still needed to be given teachings, was there. Subhadda consequently became the last monk to be ordained by Buddha Shakyamuni; upon meditating on the teachings received directly from the Buddha, he swiftly became an arhat (perfected) and entered Parinirvana shortly before Buddha Shakyamuni.
    Buddha Shakyamuni foresaw that His disciples would argue over the sharing of His relics. He wanted Doha, a wise and respected old Brahmin of Kushinagar, to mediate the disciples’ disagreements.

    On June 21, 2015, Kechara had the privilege and great merits to witness an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche briefly describes here the history and background of trances, and what happened on the day itself.

    For the first time in history, a Tibetan oracle had the invocation done for the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to enter or take trance, and there were no Tibetan monks involved. It was all local, lay Malaysians who did the invocation. Our people practiced very hard and diligently with a lot of sincerity and commitment for many weeks, to do the chanting, to learn the rituals and to ensure the procedure was done right. And everything was a great success.

    On the fateful day as preordained, we escorted Chojela to the prayer hall where there were 700 people (by invitation only) waiting to witness and to get blessings of the trance. We then assisted him in dressing in the correct regalia of the official oracle, including the hat and the boots. The instruments of trance such as the sword and spears were nearby along with the noose. The invocation was done and Dorje Shugden entered very smoothly into the oracle. He immediately got up as per tradition and did a very special Vajra dance in our prayer hall, which is the dance of clearing the obstacles.

    The crow pheasant is a beautiful bird, I saw this bird just yesterday. It is good to know that it is a good omen. It somehow gives me an assurance that things will only get better. Sometimes when people are lost and not sure if they have made the right decision, seeing signs like this can really calm people’s mind.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    This is the prayer to Dorje Shugden as composed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Dungkar Monastery of Domo Geshe Rinpoche. It is good to recite daily or when in need of help. You can see in the prayer His Holiness enthrones Dorje Shugden as the “supreme collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities and requests to grant siddhis” (attainments). Ordinary spirits cannot grant siddhis therefore in this prayer, Dalai Lama recognized Dorje Shugden as a superior being who can grant two types of siddhis. Ordinary and extra-ordinary siddhis. His Holiness surely could not be tricked by a spirit. His Holiness saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being embodying the gurus and Protective Deities who can grant two types of siddhis.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub

    Apart from his visions related to Dorje Shugden, Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub is said to have had numerous other mystical experiences. During a stay at Chubzang he had a vision of the sixty-two deity body mandala of Heruka Cakrasamvara, from whom he received the four initiations (dbang bzhi). He was also able to reveal the location of a sacred cave called Takten (rtag brtan) near Chubzang, which is related to Heruka. During a retreat at the Nyang caves (nyang phug) near Samye Monastery (bsam yas), he had a vision of Padmasambhava, his consorts, and his entourage of disciples. Although this may be interpreted as contradictory to the often perceived sectarian nature of this lineage, Padmasambhava appears to have been held in high regard. Trijang Lobzang Tendzin Gyatso, for example, also bestowed Padmasambhava empowerments and related teachings.

    Rob Lowe is a famous actor and celebrity from Hollywood who has starred in such films as St Elmo’s Fire and also the very popular hit TV series The West Wing. Recently he and his sons did a series called The Lowe Files which is something like an X Files series. The family investigates strange happenings, occurrences, mysterious creatures, supernatural lore, unsolved mysteries and the like. Between the three of them, Rob Lowe has previously said that they have varying levels of skepticism. While Rob Lowe is more ready to believe in supernatural phenomenon, his sons profess to be more grounded and skeptical than their father.

    But with a show that focuses on such topics, of course it was only a matter of time that they covered Bigfoot. I was pleasantly surprised to see this episode because not many people, especially famous people, want to be associated with this genre of investigation. Let’s be honest – society thinks that people who investigate things like poltergeists and Bigfoot are generally regarded as a little different and quirky. So for someone who is famous to openly investigate, talk about and be interested in Bigfoot, is good for the field of investigation which is known as cryptozoology.

    Even though John Lennon has passed away but his songs continue to bring positivity in people’s life. Famous people are very influential to the public, some choose to use their fame to give people a positive influence, such as John Lennon. What we want, we have to fight for it and do something to make it happens. If we want peace, we have to start with ourselves, we can’t expect it from other people.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The new analyses indicate the ubiquitous extent of microplastic contamination in the global environment. Previous work has been largely focused on plastic pollution in the oceans, which suggests people are eating microplastics via contaminated seafood.

    Mahon said there were two principal concerns: very small plastic particles and the chemicals or pathogens that microplastics can harbour. “If the fibres are there, it is possible that the nanoparticles are there too that we can’t measure,” she said. “Once they are in the nanometre range they can really penetrate a cell and that means they can penetrate organs, and that would be worrying.

    One of the global fashion powerhouses which is Gucci is going to stop using fur for its fashion in 2018. Not only that but whatever they have remaining which is fur, they will auction off and donate the proceeds to organisations against animal cruelty.

    I was so happy to hear this news! It is good when brands are self-aware and recognise the role they play in providing a demand for these cruel industries. These lead to the suffering of many animals before their painful deaths.

    For such a huge global brand to make this decision must mean there is a demand for cruelty-free fashion, and they know they can remain a viable business even if they don’t offer fur. So it is also good that when consumers apply pressure to other brands, to let them know they will still buy into the clothing even if there is no fur. From the side of the consumer and the side of the producer, both can work together in this way to eradicate fur farms and cruelty to animals.

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

    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
