Dog shot, tied up and buried alive

The discovery of a dog that was buried alive up to its nose after being shot in the head 40 times has led to calls for Malta to reform its animal welfare laws.

The crossbreed mongrel, which was named Star by his rescuers, was found near the city of Birzebbuga by animal welfare officers investigating an unrelated case.

After hearing whimpering coming from beneath a wooden board with a tree stump placed on top of it to weigh it down, officers were confronted with the distressing sight of a dog’s face buried in the dirt.

But worse was to follow. When Star was dug out of the ground they discovered all four limbs had all been tied together and that she had been repeatedly shot with a pellet gun.

Miraculously, after doctors removed 40 pellets from her skull during emergency surgery at the Ta’ Qali hospital, Star survived.

The case has caused outrage in Malta where, regardless of the nature of the act, the maximum sentence one can face for animal cruelty is a one-year jail sentence, or a maximum fine of 46,500 Euros.

A pending change in legislation will raise the maximum fine to 50,000 Euros but the one-year jail maximum will remain.

Animal lovers are holding a silent protest in Valetta next week to express their disgust.

With the abuser still at large, people have expressed their support with dedicated Facebook pages, the largest of which has 7,000 followers.

Update: Miracle Dog Dies

June 6th, 2011

Malta – Star, the dog that survived unimaginable cruelty in Malta, has just died.

The severely abused dog was found buried alive – she had been shot 40 times in the head with a pellet gun and her muzzle was bound with twine.

After Star was discovered, her miraculous defiance of death captured hearts around the world. A Facebook page in her honor was created – “Star, the dog who lived”.

Over 50,000 fans watched her amazing progress – witnessed her joy for life and reveled in her happiness as she learned what it meant to be loved.

The tragic news of Star’s unexpected death came as a shock today.

Though she had been recovering well from her trauma, she developed acute inflammation in her pancreas that ultimately claimed her life.

The devastating news arrived just 24 hours after a group of individuals had banded together to stage a protest against animal cruelty.

    Antique Pelden Lhamo thangka with sacred Dorje Shugden at the bottom right. Can see Tsongkapa and Guru Rinpoche on the top also. Beautiful and holy.

  2. Vivian Ong on Aug 23, 2017 at 11:59 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. I find that the abuser is so sickening. How can he/she do such a thing to a dog? What wrong did Star did to the abuser to get such abuse in return? Imagine if a human was shot 40 times on the head with a gun, the human would not have survive but it is a miracle that Star survived. The abuser has to be caught and fine so that he/she will know that this is not a small matter but it is taking ones life. Here I pray for Star to have a good rebirth.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    It is very sad that Star have to go through all this sufferings. The person who hurt Star as no respect at all to living beings.

  4. Beatrix Ooi on Jun 16, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    I feel so sorry for Star, even if she had done something wrong, she still didn’t deserve to be treated like this. How big mistake can a dog make? Her abusers were so cruel! How could they do this to her??? I hope she took a good rebirth.

  5. A must read Rabbit tale!!! | Tsem Rinpoche on Jul 13, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    […] always a lot of news published about how people would torment animals, abuse them and even intentionally throwing them into the river like in John’s […]

  6. Jimmy Choy on May 28, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    this is just so wrong…

  7. beatrix ooi on Feb 10, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Poor doggie. How could the person do things like that?! It’s very cruel! I strongly believe that Star didn’t deserved to be treated in such way. I really cannot imagine the amount of pain she has been through..
    May she takes a good rebirth..
    Thank You for sharing this to us Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  8. Lucas Roth on Jan 5, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    oh my, please let star have a happy life from that incident. I think animal abusing is sick and i strongly hate it. please let star have a long happy life from now on. Please stop animal cruelty!!!!!

  9. Julien Roth on Dec 5, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Oh my god. This dog survived! That is truly amazing. But this dog should have never have been put in this position. No animal needs this amount of suffering. In fact, no animals should have any suffering. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  10. nozomi on Oct 14, 2012 at 7:32 am

    i cant believe someone would ever do that to a poor innocent animal. i pray for Star’s soul and that she is well and happy and not feeling any pain or trauma. i pray she is in the rainbow bridge happy playing with other dogs. dogs will gie you anything and all they ask is very little from you-love. if he didnt want Star why didnt he just gave it away to a good home!? why did he make it suffer like that. i hope whoever did that with live with the concience of the terrible thing he did and that he rots in hell for eternity. i am an animal lover and i would never ever do that to a kind defensless animal. rest in peace star, you were a good dog

  11. tenzin llhamo on Jul 9, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Some people are just too free. Take all the time to shoot the dog 40 times and dig a hole to bury it? I can think of much better things to do than go do that. I am glad they did not bury Star alive and left the head so Star can breathe. Well, I don’t know if that it is good as she suffered before she died. May she not suffer like this again.

  12. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Sad to read this new on Star.

    Strangely, there are so many people who can be so sick to create their happiness from the sufferings of others.

    I wish very much the abuser has been caught and that Star can take rebirth in a better place.

  13. Helena Chin on Jun 7, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, Star died on the 6th June which was yesterday due to inflammation in her pancreas. Such a heartache to heard the news!! May all these abuses STOP!! No more harming to all well beings!!

    To Star~
    Rest in Peace Star, run free over the bridge.. far from those who caused you so much pain. May you have a good rebirth!!
    M MANI PADME HUM.

    Love, Helena

    A dog named Star which had been shot in the head 40 times with pellets, tied up and buried alive with her head just above the ground, miraculously survived, after an emergency surgery was done at the Hospital at Malta. Such barbaric acts caused an outrage of protests from animals lovers. With the abusers still at large, people, especially the kind and sympathetic facebook followers, more than 7000 in numbers at time of happening, have expressed their dedicated support in roping in the offenders to face the maximum jail sentence and fines for such animal cruelty. But, Rinpoche has advocated and directed that “before we can conclude so easily on Karmic effects, we should study first the text on Karma, and how Lord Buddha described it to us, especially the Doctrine on KARMA. It explains so much. It will be much easier to apply to this situation and every situation in our life. Everyone will be so amazed. It puts your mind at rest, answer so many questions and enough to be at rest with. It is an eye opener!” Thank you Rinpoche, for your attentive care and guidance on your teachings to us. Naturally all our hearts and prayers are with Star, but also, more so with this degenerating world of today. May it be free of the pains, sufferings and fear for all who live in it. OM MANI PADME HUM.

  15. vivianKyp on Jun 2, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    To me “STAR” is a Hero,40 pellets in the head, 4 limbs tied up buried alive up to the head under hot sun, poor “STAR” must be hungry & thirsty, and yet she did not let go of her life, Why? because “STAR” want to bring this cruel human act to the attention of kind hearted people, like Rinpoche(Kechara) so that there will be no 2nd;3rd……”STAR” to be torture to death.I pray for the speedy recovery of “STAR”.

  16. Sofi on Jun 1, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Its so sad that everyday humans seems to be fighting a losing battle against cruelty. It really is getting more degenerated with the level of cruelty increasing all the time. I pray for all the poor victims and the abusers that Dharma may find its way to their hearts.

  17. henry ooi on May 31, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    Poor, poor mumu. Being shot so many times with its legs tied up, buried and left to die. The pain and suffering it went through but cannot relate to anyone.

    How could anyone have done this? What did it do to deserve this? May you find peace in your heart.

  18. Wendy Ho on May 31, 2011 at 2:29 am

    I can’t believe anyone would actually go to that extent to sadistically torture a dog. What’s going thru the mind of the person who did this?

    However, thinking of the law of cause and effect, it dawned upon me that however victimized Star is in this life, he must have created the cause for it in the past. Hence going thru the experience similar to negative action created in the past. The person who did this is even worse of, most probably taking this action as a result of having the tendency similar to past negative action thus perpetuating even more negative karma that can bring extreme suffering in the future.

    Witnessing this even just thru reading about it this blog makes me feel how scary it is to commit negative actions as the results can be far reaching and increasing especially so if we are born again without opportunity to come in contact with Dharma and apply the methods of purification.

    There will be no chance of escaping the scary effects except to experience it and in the process most probably create even more negative karma. It will be almost impossible to get out of it. It is a vicious cycle. Very scary.

  19. KimT on May 30, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    To see Star in the pix above, buried up to the nose and Star in the Fan page, made me realize what good nature most animals have. In the Fan page, you do not see Star brooding or looking mean spirited and using the abuse it underwent as excuse for it to be vicious and nasty.

    On the other hand, what a twisted mind a person must have to be able to do that kind of thing to another being. Its scary that there are people like that out there.

  20. Paris on May 30, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Oh my goodness, I have just seen this and am completely shocked that someone would do so much just to willingly see an animal suffer… Definitely, I will dedicate prayers to her at our Setrap retreat tonight, and will light a candle for her. Poor baby… Thank Buddha for those compassionate rescuers who have helped her – there is some kindness in the world.

    I am again reminded of something Rinpoche has taught us, which is that we always feel great sadness for beings like Star… but we don’t feel sadness for people who are creating the causes to be like Star. So actually, we feel huge anger at the people who did this to her but they are creating the causes to end up being tortured and hurt and to suffer just as Star is. This is a huge contemplation in itself, which I find helps tremendously in not continuing the cycle of anger towards others.

  21. Shin on May 29, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    It is sad that a frustrated/bored/troubled human did this to an innocent being that did nothing to him/her.

    I find it amazing to know that when Star was rescued, she immediately allowed all the Animal Welfare staff to cuddle her and she even managed to wag her tail as if to show gratitude.

    No being deserves to be hurt. It is time we stop speciesism and stop harming other animals.

  22. Han Siew Fong on May 29, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to bring STAR’s case to many people attention.
    Very sad and heart broken when came across cruelty towards animals.
    I will continue to burn incense and light candle for Star and includes her in my prayer.
    May Star healing fast and recover soon!

  23. Ashlee on May 29, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    It is quite sad that there are crazy and cold blooded people out there who would be so cruel to animals. I feel so terribly sorry for Star. Whoever to did this to her is really heartless. My prayers goes to Star…may she receive the love & care that every animals deserve. Will definitely light a candle for her.

  24. bengkooi on May 29, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    Now there are 23,500 followers on Star’s facebook fanpage and a petition to bring justice to her tormentors – please sign it here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/373/justice-for-star/

    Her abusers deserver justice, how can anyone do so much damage to another living being and derive enjoyment from it? If karma was so simple, then her abusers should get 40 shots with a pellet gun to their heads and let’s see if they like that. I wished everyone (or at least more people) would read and study up on karma, then perhaps there would be less misery and cruelty in the world.

  25. Bill on May 29, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Will most definitely light incense along with sending prayers to Star for healing, and that this message can reach others hearts to stop this cruelty. For as we cherish the most All Life, even the most simplest, so too shall we cherish the preciousness within others.

    “A society is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable”
    …which Mahatma Gandhi said included animals*.

  26. ruby khong on May 29, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It is very disturbing, sad and angry all at the same time. Such an inhumane act committed by a so called human. Despicable!

    I will include Star in my prayers. Have lighted incense for him. I just saw his FB and has 23,000 people wishing him well.

  27. su_zan on May 29, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    came across your post about Star today. I was thinking what about Star until i look in yr blog.

    Ahyo it is really a cruel act. This person can take 40 shot and tied the limbs up somemore.

    Will light a candle for Star in home and also another one in KPSP.

    Thank you for your update.

    Suzan

  28. Karma Yeshey Tshogyel on May 29, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    Respected Rinpoche,
    My heart is wounded after reading it. I wonder how cruel some humans are, what might have they got by doing such act??? Please….. Save such animals who is the victim of cruel human mind.

  29. tsemtulku on May 29, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    I cannot comment on other religions, but before we conclude so easily on karma, it’s effects, how it comes, goes and latent karma, dormant karma, you study first. Study the texts on karma and how Buddha describes it for us. It will be much easier to apply to this situation and every situation in your life. People should go online and listen to the youtube teachings His Holiness Dalai Lama has explained karma. It is a eye opener. Do a google search, find and study, read and learn. Make an effort…Take 2-3 years to study the vast teachings of Buddha thoroughly and then debate, discuss and recommend. Buddhism is the religion I was born into, but I didn’t accept it because I was born into it…but I studied for the last 30years. I was very lucky to live in Howell, New Jersey nearby one of the greatest living masters of this century (Kensur Lobsang Tharchin) at Rashi Gempil Ling on East 5th Street. This great master even spoke English. I with a group of students and some Kalmucks took the time, went there to listen to the discourses and learn about my religion more. I didn’t want to just pray and I did not want to be swallowed up by the thoughts of mainstream Americans. I do not want to just repeat what mainstream Americans believed in because I have my own heritage I thought at the time. Nothing wrong with Americans, but I am Kalmuck-Mongol-Tibetan. I have an identity, my forefathers have a deep religious doctrine they brought to America, and I needed to search into my roots, my religion and who I was…I started by studying as a young boy in Rashi Gempil Ling. Now I accept Buddhism NOT BECAUSE it is my cultural roots, but due to decades of study, contemplation and investigation, I found it quite logical, sensible and fits me. Especially the doctrine on Karma. It explains SO MUCH. Everyone would be amazed. It puts your mind at rest, answer so many questions, and enough to be at rest with. Tsem Rinpoche

  30. adeline on May 29, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    No words can describe the cruelty act to STAR,offered incense and candle and prayer to MIRACLE STAR!

  31. Lin Kechara on May 29, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Dear Rinpoche. Will go to light incense now. I cannot imagine anyone being able to do something like this. Such unimaginable cruelty. Lin

  32. Bonita on May 29, 2011 at 11:27 am

    How sick and cruel can a person be to do this to Star, not only shot Star 40 times but tied Star up and buried alive to die a slow death?! Really insane.

    What karma does Star has to suffer like this. May the people who did this realise what they’ve done and redeem themselves before karma catches up with them.

    May Star have a speedy recovery and be adopted by a kind and caring family.

  33. susanlim on May 29, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Dear Rinpoche
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It’s beyond words to describe the cruelty and no regards for life.

    I am so glad to know that Star was found and the very kind people didn’t give up on her and now, the legislation may be changed. I hope it will. I hope everywhere in the world will revise their laws and not wait for another life to suffer so much before anything is done.

    Yes, Rinpoche, I’ve offered light and incense for Star.

    much respect
    susan

  34. Valentina Suhendra on May 29, 2011 at 10:20 am

    Dear Lama

    I am horrified to read what happened to STAR. I hope he is well taken care off. I am impressed by his will to live.

    I am frustrated sometimes to see how animals are being treated. They are weaker than us in the matter of intelligince, but they can feel pain, love, and compassion just like any of us. That alone I think give them the right to be loved, respected, and being taken care of.

    Much love

    Valentina

  35. Lily on May 29, 2011 at 4:37 am

    Read about Star in the Daily Mail yesterday. I cannot comprehend the extent of cruelty that the perpetrators possess.What motivates someone to perform this inhumane act.
    Star is now too withdrawn to be re-homed at the moment. Hope Star will find a loving home soon.

  36. Jace Chong on May 29, 2011 at 4:18 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this,

    May Star purified her negative karmas through these and be protected by Three Jewels from life to life.

  37. Frederick Law on May 29, 2011 at 2:17 am

    this is so sad, why would there be such human who can be so cruel to treat a poor dog like that, this is so inhumane, this is such a cruelty. but it is amazing that Star survive such condition, it truly a miracle. i had just lighted the incense and prayed to the Three Jewels and wish Star swiftly recover and will have a good rebirth in future life, so that he can help other sentient being who is suffering. i hope the culprit who did this will repent. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  38. Margaretlee on May 29, 2011 at 2:12 am

    It is very distressing to read about this. 40 shots in the head, 4 limbs are tied and buried alive…….No matter what motive was, the person who did that was a physco, in my opinion.

    I will light incense as well as candles for Star…….May he recovers soon and never have to suffer like this again.

  39. Nicole ST Mah on May 29, 2011 at 1:34 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I have already lighted one incense and candles to the Three Jewels and thought of Star strongly. I have just made my prayers for her. I cried and cried. Tears couldn’t stop rolling down. The thoughts and the picture of Star kept playing in my head. May Star recovers well and not feel afraid. May the Triple Gems be with Star and protect not only Star but all beings.

    With much love,
    ~Nicole

  40. Sandy on May 29, 2011 at 1:20 am

    Wow. There are no words. Just when I thought I had read the worst of stories.
    Horrific, sad, barbaric, awful, cruel, unbelievable, nonsensical, absurd, disgusting. No adjective seems to do justice to this story. If I had to, I’d pick sad, simply because it is deeply sad to think that anyone would treat anything like this. If there was ever a story that made the heart cry, this is it.

  41. Ani Kunzang on May 29, 2011 at 1:12 am

    My heart and prayers are with Star, that she should recover fully and then be nurtured with love for the rest of her life. May the world be free of torture and fear, and may our blindness to suffering dissolve, and the eye of true compassion in our hearts awaken. Thank you Rinpoche.

  42. Philip Yong on May 29, 2011 at 1:07 am

    All my life, I never really fancied animals (mainly because of their fur). But no matter how much I dislike animals, I wouldn’t hurt them for whatever reasons, let alone bury them alive like how this dog named Star had been treated.

    This is beyond insane. When we say that we control our lives, it should not mean that we have the power to do anything we like, example hurting animals. Instead, we should use our lives to benefit more beings, or the at the very least not do harm to any beings.

  43. Jean Mei on May 29, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for bringing this to light. I saw the photo and scrolled right past the text initially, only going back to it after the photo sank into my mind.

    It’s so gross to see what kind of ugly people exist out there.

    Just by looking at the photo, you can tell how much thought had gone into torturing the dog.

    Shooting 40 bullets is easy. It only requires 1 finger, but burying the dog is a lot of work. The worst part of it all was that they (or he/she) deliberately kept the face exposed to watch the dog suffer.

    How horrible.

    Increasing the penalty is not going to change people’s mentality.

    Animal cruelty should not be seen as a crime or going against the law, but as morally incorrect. It should be something innate in us that to inflict harm on any being is wrong. That pain hurts, and it hurts for everyone.

    This really is a sad post.

    By the way, I found the Facebook page. It now has 20,000 followers….http://www.facebook.com/StarOurHope

    Thank you

  44. Li Kim on May 29, 2011 at 12:32 am

    I cannot believe what I have read here. I am happy Star survived but it is only a physical survival. How about the emotional pain and trauma? No time or medication can ever heal that. My prayers will be dedicated to Star’s emotional survival.

    I also wish that the abuser be found and given what he deserves. I am sorry, but I cannot feel and think about how much help he/she needs now to redeem himself and karma. I just want the abuser punished so that he can learn and redeem.

  45. Shirley Maya Tan on May 29, 2011 at 12:04 am

    I am utterly shocked and speechless. I will definitely light a candle and incense for Star. Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this story. It is extremely tragic to know that humans did this to a helpless innocent being. Very, very sad ;(

  46. Lim Han Nee on May 29, 2011 at 12:04 am

    It is 12 midnight but I will not be able to go to sleep without lighting an incense and saying a prayer for Star, the victim of such unimaginable cruelty and sadism.I will pray for people to realize how much misery they are creating for themselves by these acts of atrocity.

  47. tsemtulku on May 28, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    Please everyone, light one incense to the Three Jewels and think of Star strongly. Make your prayers for her today/tonight. Open your heart. TR

    Animals are like human beings. They will feel scared and they need protections. They are more vulnerable than human. Since we are stronger than them, we should protect them, but not inflict pain on them.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing with us this amazing news and inspiring occasion where Kechara has the chance to make offerings to sangha from Sri Lanka. These monks are pure monks and it is very meritorious when we can make such offerings to them.

    From this incident, I am able to see the true spirit of religion where the monks kindly accepted our offerings even though we are from a different sect of Buddhism and they even requested to bless the land on their own initiative. They have a good intention and wanted the Dharma to grow in Kechara sincerely.

    This is how it should be when it comes to religion. People should not discriminate based on the differences in their belief system.

    From this article i can understand that by praying and believing in Dorje Shugden, it helps us to create conducive conditions for a spiritual practice. As a Dharma protector, Dorje Shugden will remove our obstacles, and protect us and our loved ones.
    This article good and complete for anyone who wishes to learn about Dorje Shugden.Thank you so much for sharing this article.

    Rinpoche have always advice us that we should go to places full of spiritual power such to Bodh Gaya, Lumbini , Wu Tai San and so forth. Have an auspicious and meritorious trip instead of going for holidays to see places of interest. Rejoice to Pastor David for bringing your dad and your friend Paul with his mother for this wonderful meaningful pilgrimage to Nepal and India visiting powerful places of the tantric deity Vajrayogini and so on. And visiting Serpom monastery as suggested by Rinpoche to make offerings to the monks. Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words.
    I wish I could go on a pilgrimage to such Holy and scared place of Nepal and India some day.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing your memorable account of your pilgrimage with your dad, Paul and his mother.

    Very informative post of this Gyenze fire Puja or sometime known as the Fire Puja of the Wealth. In Buddhism, ceremonies are meant to provide a blessing. Gyenze fire Puja is no exception, is a very effective and powerful puja within the Tibetan Buddhism. And is considered the king of all pujas. Well its basically to remove all obstacles ,purifying negative karma, increase merits, dispel negative energies and pacifies unseen beings, that obstruct us from doing our Dharma practice. Wow……these are the 13 ingredients been offered during this fire Puja. I am fortunate to have witnessed one at Kechara Forest Retreat before and looking forward to the next Fire Puja this coming Saturday.
    Thanks Rinpoche for having those monks to perform this meritorious puja . And thank you all sponsors and those hardworking team making it possible.

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

    Heartfelt watching the beginning of the video. Could imagine the fear the furry Edie encountered, so much so hiding at the corner. Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

The Unknown

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

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