Is it time to worry?

Oct 1, 2014 | Views: 1,171

Dear friends close around the world,

I must thank you for sharing many of the information I’ve posted on this blog through the years because it really serves to inform many on different issues. When people have information, then it could be the beginning of something good. Whatever little bit of good things I am doing now, is because of the information I came across or given to me in the past. Same goes for activists, researchers, housewives, businesswomen, professionals, speakers/representatives, donors, field workers, celebrities, leaders and so on. They were given or came across information that started their passion to do something good for the world. So everyone, please keep tirelessly sharing the information here and many thanks from myself. 🙂

It would be worthy, that my blog evolves into a general platform for all types of beneficial information in the future with many contributing writers and works from around the world. For now I bring you three extremely important articles you should be aware of. After reading the articles, you should please ask yourself two questions: Is it time to start worrying and how much will you do consistently to bring awareness to others of the issues your about to read?

Have a good day,

Tsem Rinpoche

Melting Antarctic Ice Is Causing an Actual Shift in Gravity
Study further confirms global warming is changing Antarctica in fundamental ways.

—By Eric Holthaus | Tue Sep. 30, 2014 6:00 AM EDT

This story originally appeared in Slate and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

Gravity—yes, gravity—is the latest victim of climate change in Antarctica. That’s the stunning conclusion announced Friday by the European Space Agency.

“The loss of ice from West Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region,” writes the ESA, whose GOCE satellite measured the change. Apparently, melting billions of tons of ice year after year has implications that would make even Isaac Newton blanch. Here’s the data visualized.

 

 

To be fair, the change in gravity is very small. It’s not like you’ll float off into outer space on your next vacation to the Antarctic Peninsula.

The biggest implication is the new measurements confirm global warming is changing the Antarctic in fundamental ways. Earlier this year, a separate team of scientists announced that major West Antarctic glaciers have begun an “unstoppable” “collapse,” committing global sea levels to a rise of several meters over the next few hundred years.

Though we all learned in high-school physics that gravity is a constant, it actually varies slightly depending on where you are on the Earth’s surface and the density of the rock (or, in this case, ice) beneath your feet. During a four-year mission, the ESA satellite mapped these changes in unprecedented detail and was able to detect a significant decrease in the region of Antarctica where land ice is melting fastest.

The new results in West Antarctica were achieved by combining the high-resolution gravity field measurements from the ESA satellite with a longer-running but lower resolution gravity-analyzing satellite mission called Grace, which is jointly operated by the United States and Germany. Scientists hope to scale up this analysis to all of Antarctica soon, which could provide the clearest picture yet of the pace global warming is taking in the frozen continent. Current best estimates show that global seas could be as much as 50 inches higher by century’s end, due in large part to ice melt in West Antarctica.

Previous research with data from a third satellite, CryoSat (also from ESA), has shown ice loss from this portion of West Antarctica has increased by three-fold since just 2009, with 500 cubic kilometers of ice now melting each year from Greenland and Antarctica combined. That’s an iceberg the size of Manhattan, three-and-a-half miles thick.

Half the World’s Wildlife Has Disappeared in Just 40 Years

—By Inae Oh | Tue Sep. 30, 2014 4:54 PM EDT

 

The forest elephant population has fallen by more than 60 percent since 2002, according to research cited in a new World Wildlife Fund report. Thomas Breuer/Wikimedia Commons    

 

Global wildlife populations have declined by a stunning 52 percent over the past four decades, and humans are largely to blame.

That’s according to a newly released study conducted by the World Wildlife Fund and the Zoological Society of London, which analyzed an index of 10,000 different animal populations (referred to in the study as the Global Living Planet Index) comprised of more than 3,000 species of vertebrates, a group of animals that includes mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, and birds.

The report attributes this insane drop almost entirely to human activity, including overfishing, unsustainable agriculture, a dramatic loss in natural habitats, and—of course—climate change.

 

 

The most severe decline was experienced by freshwater species, whose populations fell a shocking 76 percent—nearly twice the rate experienced by marine and terrestrial species (both of which dropped by 39 percent). The most significant reductions in wildlife occurred largely in the tropics, especially in South America.

“This damage is not inevitable but a consequence of the way we choose to live,” said the Zoological Society’s Ken Norris, according to the AP. “There is still hope. Protecting nature needs focused conservation action, political will and support from industry.”

While Norris’ message leaves room for a bit of encouragement, it remains to be seen if the WWF’s latest data will spur significant political action, particularly in light of the upcoming United Nations climate change and sustainability meeting in 2015.

Naomi Klein: Fossil Fuels Threaten Our Ability to Have Healthy Children
Why oil spills, fracking, and climate change pose a special danger to the youngest members of all species.

—By Indre Viskontas | Mon Sep. 29, 2014 6:00 AM EDT

It’s self-evident that embryos, fetuses, and babies are vulnerable. We have strict laws protecting children because they cannot fend for themselves. And yet, too often, we ignore the impact that environmental disasters have on the very earliest stages of life. In her new book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, Naomi Klein examines the effect that our reliance on fossil fuels has on the most helpless members of the animal kingdom—as well as on our own children.

“In species after species, climate change is creating pressures that are depriving life-forms of their most essential survival tool: the ability to create new life and carry on their genetic lines,” Klein writes. “Instead, the spark of life is being extinguished, snuffed out in its earliest, most fragile days: in the egg, in the embryo, in the nest, in the den.”

Take the case of the leatherback sea turtles. These ancient creatures have been around for 150 million years, making them the longest-surviving marine animals on earth. As Klein points out, they’ve survived the “asteroid attacks” that likely wiped out the dinosaurs. But now they are threatened by a combination of poaching, fishing and climate change. One recent study found that as temperatures rise over the next century, “egg and hatchling survival will rapidly decline” for sea turtle populations in the Eastern Pacific.

The leatherback turtles have “survived so much,” says Klein on this week’s episode of the Inquiring Minds podcast. “But it’s not clear that they’re going to be able to survive even incremental climate change, because what’s happening already is that when the eggs are buried in the sand, even if the sand is just marginally hotter than it used to be, that the eggs are not hatching; they’re cooking in the sand.” What’s more, turtles don’t have sex chromosomes—they turn into males or females based on the ambient temperature of the sand in which they are born. Hotter sand means more female turtles hatch. And the danger is that warming could eventually result in a significant imbalance between males and females, ultimately decimating the species.

While writing the book, Klein was going through her own fertility crisis, so she says she was particularly attuned to the fragility of new life and the impacts that stressors can have on reproduction. And she began to notice a common theme in the after-effects of environmental catastrophes. In the wake of the 2010 BP oil spill, for example, she toured the Louisiana marshes. With Jonathan Henderson, an organizer with the Gulf Restoration Network, guiding the way, Klein and a few others set out to investigate whether the oil from the Deepwater Horizon had permeated the bayous. It was the fish jumping in dirty water and the coating of reddish brown oil that impressed Klein and her companions.

But what most concerned Henderson, recalls Klein, was the nearly invisible cost of the disaster: the tiny zooplankton and juveniles that grow into the shrimp, oysters, crabs, and fish that are the bedrock of the Gulf fisheries. “What he was preoccupied with was the fact that this was spawning seasoning,” Klein says. “And that even though we couldn’t see it, there was just a huge amount of proto-life surrounding us, and this was spring in the Gulf and everything was spawning.”

Drifting in the marshlands, Klein writes that she “had the distinct feeling that we were suspended not in water but in amniotic fluid, immersed in a massive multi-species miscarriage.”

These effects, she argues, may be felt years later, when those juveniles should be reaching maturity. “Looking into it in the context of the Gulf, we’ve heard a lot of really concerning stories directly from fishermen saying that they’re not seeing baby fish out there,” Klein says. “Or they’re seeing female crabs without eggs.” In her book, she recounts a 2012 interview with a Florida fisherman named Donny Waters who had noticed the absence of small fish in his catches. This hadn’t yet cut into his income, since small fish are thrown back. But Waters was worried that the impact would be felt in the years to come—specifically, in 2016 or 2017, when those fish that were in the larval stage during the spill would have grown up.

This wouldn’t be the first time that an oil spill had a delayed effect on the fishing industry. “The greatest and most lasting impacts on the fish in Alaska had to do with this delayed disaster,” says Klein, referring to the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989. “It wasn’t until three or four years after the spill that the herring fishery collapsed.” Twenty-five years later, it still hasn’t recovered.

What’s more, scientists say the spill might also help explain the deaths of an unusual number of young bottlenose dolphins in the northern Gulf of Mexico. In a paper published in PlosONE in 2012, Ruth Carmichael and her colleagues examined whether the spill contributed to a “perfect storm” of events that killed 186 dolphins—46 percent of whom were perinatal calves (that is, babies)—in the first four months of 2011.

“When we put the pieces together,” explained Carmichael in a 2012 press release, “it appears that the dolphins were likely weakened by depleted food resources, bacteria, or other factors as a result of the 2010 cold winter or oil spill, which made them susceptible to assault by the high volumes of cold freshwater [from heavy snowmelt] coming from land in 2011 and resulted in distinct patterns in when and where they washed ashore.”

By April 2014, 235 stranded baby bottlenose dolphins had been found, “a staggering figure, since scientists estimate that the number of cetacean corpses found on or near shore represents only 2 percent of the ‘true death toll,'” Klein writes.

Of course, this research isn’t conclusive. A BP spokesperson notes that dolphins in the Gulf began dying off before the oil spill and that unusual mortality events “occur with some regularity.” For its part, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration states that the “direct or indirect effects” of the spill are being “investigated as potential causes or contributing factors for some of the strandings” but that “no definitive cause has yet been identified.”

Further up the food chain, Klein is also concerned about the potential impact of environmental pollution on human fertility. During the same trip that took her through the marshlands of Louisiana, she also visited Mossville, the historic African American town notorious as a case study in environmental racism.

“This was a town formed by freed slaves, and after being established, it was surrounded by 14 massive petrochemical factories, and the land and water was just poisoned, and most of the people have already left,” Klein says.

While worries about cancers and other illnesses in Mossville have been covered fairly extensively in the media, the issue of fertility problems is less well known. “When I spoke to women who had lived in Mossville, what I heard about was just an epidemic of infertility and that just so many women had hysterectomies,” Klein says. These stories are anecdotal, but Klein hopes more research will be done. “This is often just an understudied part of science,” she says.

Klein also points to emerging research that links the fracking boom with various reproductive problems. In a Bloomberg View column earlier this year, Mark Whitehouse reported on data presented at the annual American Economic Association meeting from a yet-to-be published study of Pennsylvania birth records that apparently found a correlation between proximity to shale gas sites and low birth weight in babies. Babies born within a 2.5-kilometer radius of gas drilling sites were almost twice as likely to have a low birth weight (increasing from 5.6 percent to 9 percent of births) or a low APGAR score, the first evaluation of a baby’s health after birth. And a study published this year examining birth outcomes and proximity to natural gas development reported that mothers who lived within 10 miles of the highest number of fracking sites (125 wells within a 10-mile radius) were 30 percent more likely to have babies with congenital heart defects and twice as likely to have babies with neurological problems compared to mothers whose homes were at least 10 miles away from any fracking site.

Then there’s the threat that climate change itself poses to children. Last year, UNICEF warned that “more severe and more frequent natural disasters, food crises and changing rainfall patterns are all threatening children’s lives” and that by 2050, climate change could result in an additional 25 million children suffering from malnourishment.

“For all the talk about the right to life and the rights of the unborn,” writes Klein, “our culture pays precious little attention to the particular vulnerabilities of children, let alone developing life.”

    The signs of global warming are everywhere, and are more complex than just climbing temperatures. Humans and wild animals face new challenges for survival because of climate change. More frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans can directly harm animals. They also destroy the places they live, and wreak havoc on people’s livelihoods and communities. Sad if we are not doing to save and protect our environment and earth, no one will. From polar bears in the Arctic to marine turtles, our planet’s diversity of life is at risk from the changing climate. We must urgently reduce carbon pollution and prepare for the consequences of global warming, advance policies to fight climate change before its too late. Global wildlife populations sooner or later it will be extinct too if not protected.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    With the increase of human population who are trained to consume and produce waste lawlessly, it is in no time the world will have little other living species, either due to the fact the they become a part of human’s food chain, or they extinct because the environment can no longer support them. The environment deteriorates at God speed due to over usage of harmful chemical and pollution. As all of us are one part of this poisonous environment, we will suffer in the hands of our own mindlessness and selfishness from our own kind. It is time to stop thinking that we are superior than other species and start considering ourselves no difference from the animals that we eat and the dolphins that live in the ocean. We all have the same need and desire to live in a clean environment with food and water supply that are free of pollution and chemical.

  3. Samfoonheei on Jan 22, 2017 at 6:03 pm

    Yes it is time to worry for sure if we are not doing anything to protect our earth , environment and animals .There’s the threat that climate change will do more harm.One recent study found that as temperatures rise over the next century.Marine life of dolphins , leatherback sea turtles and so forth are affected .Sooner or later they will be extnct due to global warming. .Scientists discovered environmental pollution can cause human fertility.
    Human activity, including over fishing, unsustainable agriculture, a dramatic loss in natural habitats, and—of course—climate change are to be blamed. Hence it is indeed a time to worry and put in more effort to protect our environment and earth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this informative article.

  4. Pastor Moh Mei on Feb 6, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    I think in many ways nature is a reflection of mankind. Equilibrium, compassion, wisdom, creativity, tenacity, integrity are all qualities we can find in nature. There is also a precarious balance between harmony and destruction. Mother nature does respond and react to external stimuli. It’s reaction can bring about unstoppable natural disasters.

    To educate mankind to care about mother nature is educating mankind to care about themselves but many still refused to see this inter-dependency between mankind and mother nature. It is simple not worth the time and effort considering human short life span. So we tend to reap the most out of the short life span we have. We are a selfish species and this selfishness will inevitably destroy the one habitat we all share and live in today.

    Do mankind have the wisdom and foresight to recognize the consequences of our actions and stop them before it’s too late? History would bet against us. It is in our selfish human nature to only take actions and care when we are directly impacted, when we directly lose from environmental issues. Until then, for those of us who believe in the cause, we can try our best to promote awareness, to live a “greener” lifestyle and hopefully one person at a time, we can create some impact in slowing down the degeneration of mother nature. We cannot change the world, it may be too late to change the world and reverse the damage done but we can still change ourselves. Every actions count. A shorter shower, one less plastic bag, one vegetarian meal a week, take that walk instead of driving….collectively we can make it count.

  5. Lucas Roth on Mar 16, 2015 at 11:48 pm

    These facts are so true and we are destroying this world and now it isn’t that we can be more eco friendly in out lifestyles but now we must stop the industries that can tear down nature, have effects on areas around them and the industries that pollute the environment. These kind of things can destroy the lives of animals and our lives too.

    Animals deserve a proper non polluted home because they are lives too just like humans and they have right to a clean earth just like us. But we are destroying their homes and we are killing them. Humans are like a parasite on earth, we feed off it while slowly killing it. Animals didn’t do anything but we humans are just ignorant and believe that only we deserve a good life while we destroy their homes and lives.

    What we don’t realize is that we are destroying out homes too with pollution and the industries as the young get effected and the environment is unhealthy so we get unhealthy. We are destroying this world for everyone. So if you cant help stop this for the poor, poor animals then do it for yourself.

  6. Sean Wang on Oct 19, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Thank you for sharing these articles I believe that such calamities are to be worried about. I believe that it is indeed time to worry. Firstly, I feel that a gravitational shift due to climate change is not worth worrying about but rather what is needed to be worried about is the glacial ice melting which would lead to a world-wide situation of submergence, even Malaysia would be affected as 4% of our country will be underwater in the event of total polar melting. Massive relocation and obstruction of produce production would lead to global chaos! Alternatively, should a freshwater lake melt and leak out into the ocean we may enter an ice age! Thus, glacial melting is something to worry about.

    The intense amount of animal species becoming extinct is also extremely alarming as their extinction is mainly due to human influences. However, if I see this phenomenon from a darwinian perspective, it is just evolution taking its course. Cold, yes, but it is a sad, ugly truth of this world of constant evolution and search for self interest.

    It is rather interesting to see the other effects that humans have on ourselves. Although it doesn’t directly involve me (as I do not intend on having children), it is rather shocking to see that our future generations may be weakened or threatened by our constant use of fossil fuels. It is also very disheartening to see the only creatures deemed non-human persons ie the dolphins suffering from their land counterparts. It is sad.

    However, understanding that these things are happening and worrying about them would not solve the problem. Standing around and doing nothing will not solve the problem. A childhood phrase would make sense here – Do not cry over spilt milk – and if I could add to it, it would be “Just mop it up and move on, make sure it doesn’t happen again”.

    Firstly, awareness needs to be created. Many choose to ignore the truth of global warming, people do not see it as a global warning, they see it as a work of fiction, something to ignore but they shouldn’t. People need to know that there would be extremely negative consequences with the climate if people do not do anything. A great movie/documentary for creating awareness would be “The Inconvenient Truth” by Al Gore.

    Next, people can lessen the amount of emissions by using their vehicle less and to try and find alternative energy sources. Alternatively, we could use our current resources more efficiently ie recycling.

    Methane is one of the greatest pollutants and contributors to the Greenhouse Effect. Methane largely comes from slaughterhouses and farms. Cows especially. They produce so much methane that it would lead to global warming. Thus, if more people were vegetarian and the demand for meats were lowered, slaughterhouses would be not needed and the environment would be better.

    Furthermore, human greed is a major contributing factor for all of the ailments of this planet, whether it is to do with the environment or with the animals inhabiting it. If humans learn to be grateful with what they have, people would not strive for more, they would strive for enough. Gratefulness is key.

  7. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Oct 14, 2014 at 9:17 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. What Leonardo says is true- we have to act before it’s too late. Worry about the climate change and global warming doesn’t help much but taking responsible actions is crucial to our well being and that of the future generations too. We have to preserve the eco system before it become extinct .. and the Ebola virus is spreading fast… and it may be just at our door step before we know it.

    I hope everyone will do their part to save the earth and be environmental friendly and also be kind to animals.

    Thank you.

  10. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Oct 7, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us on the urgency and the awareness of climate change that can affect most of the living beings, especially the unprotected wild animals, whether they are living in the forest, rivers, lakes or in the ocean.

    I truly agree with what Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio has mentioned in his speech that ‘Now is the moment of actions’. We cannot react in selfish manner and pretend with ignorance that these climate changes will not affect us in our lifetimes. Many people will think that by the time the sea level has risen to a dangerous level, we would have been gone and dead, but who knows we might be reborn as animals or humans in next lifetime that we might have to endure the consequences of the climate change that is currently happening now.

    Previously, I have read on one article that one of the factors that affects the climate change is the fart coming from the livestock, especially the cows and other animals, which are intended to become meat for human consumption. The methane gas (in the form of fart) produced by the animals has significantly caused the temperature to rise as the number of livestock is growing year by year to cater for the growing human population in parallel.

    I urgently urge everyone not to take meat as it is not only can save the animals from being killed brutally, but it can also help to reduce or prevent the climate change and reduce the global warming as well.

    Let’s not take the climate change lightly but I encourage everyone of us to plant some trees at any places wherever we are allowed to as we can do our bit to save our planet from getting deteriorated. Just imagine if our ancestors did all the pollutions and all the activities that could affect the climate change severely, we would not survive until today.

    Thank you for your time to read up my short writing.

  11. Edwin Tan on Oct 7, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the articles. This article clearly highlights the issues on hand that was already made known to the world in 1990s.

    Moving forward to now, 20 years later after so much shocking revelation, nothing much was done. True, people are more concerned now…on climate changes, using LED lights. However, the carbon emission from vehicles, the usage of petrol and fuel still have not declined but increasing year after year.

    The latest was the nuclear leak from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. What impact it created for the economy, the environment and the marine life in that part of Japan. Chernobyl has just recovered from the incident so ing ago…and now another nuclear incident.

    Water / Sea levels are rising. Everybody knows that. News and stories about how Venice and Maldives will be under water soon, yet no significant effects done.

    Ozone is depleting, hence the climate change, yet everyday, deforestation and burning of forests are still on going.

    There are still dozen of develoing countries, with them not concerned about the environment, little can be achieved. There are also many less developed and poor nations, with little to fend for themselves, education of such makes little sense to them.

    There are a lot more we can all achieve together, but it is not the voice of 1, or hundreds, or thousands. Voices have to be heard in billions.

    I hope every single reader that sees Rinpoche’s blogs, or read the articles elsewhere will make some efforts to preserve the eco-system… before it collapses.

    Thank you.

  12. Uncle Eddie on Oct 6, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    All these phenomenas as shared by Rinpoche, certainly do give our World a lot to worry and fear for! Also additionally, to whatever have had happened, a 15 member-team of United Nation Security council had unanimously passed a resolution declaring that the “unprecedented extent of the Ebola outbreak in Africa, which happened at the end of Sept. 2014, constituted a threat to international peace and security”. The most deadly epidemic of Ebola was said to have spread into five west African countries since the start of the year. Health authorities have called for immediate aid and warned that Ebola fever can fell its victim within days, causing severe muscle pain, vomitting, diarrhoea and – in some cases – unstoppable internal and external bleeding and death. The importation of several experimental drugs to combat the Ebola virus have been used, hoping these will greatly help to combat the increasing trend of the disease transmission and become a big boost to stop the outbreak! Let us all pray hard that this will be efective, since there is said to be no licensed treatment or vaccine for Ebola yet!

  13. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 6, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for highlighting in this post,various impending catastrophies or catastrophies that have already occurred, which remind us all too clearly, how humankind is digging its own grave by its wilfull acts of killing life and destroying the environment.

    The three highlighted here are: global warming and its effects of rising ocean levels, as well as its negative effect on gravity; the wiping out of half the world’s wildlife in just 40 years; and the effects of unabated fossil usage that is causing environmental pollution and such consequences as the impending disasters of infertility ,even among humans, which will result in the decline of the human and animal ‘population’.

    Among the most significant instances of the destruction of life due to man’s actions of destroying and polluting the environment, with oilspills and the like, can be seen in the deaths of herrings that caused the whole herring fishery industry to collapse, and tPossibly the deaths of 186 botted nose dolphins (40% of whom were babies), in the wake of the Exxon Valdez oilspills in the Gulf of Mexico in 1989.

    The most painful recorded incident of deaths is that of the ancient leatherback turtles(150 million years old) which had survived even the ” asteroid attacks” that had wiped out the dinosaurs , only to succumb to possibly to a combination ofpoaching, fishing and climate change(also caused by man).

    We humans had a choice. We chose the way to disaster for ourselves and others. It’s still not too late to revert.

  14. Low KHJB on Oct 5, 2014 at 11:39 am

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.I is very true that the faith of the earth depends on its inhibitors.No matters how small our contribution is to save its environments.It would be the only hope for the existence for any life form in time to come.
    The attachment to material needs,power and ignorance speed up the the process of climate change and global warming.
    There are some buddhist groups that would educate the followers on good practice to slow down this process in form of application of dharma practice and educating the young to bring the massage through.
    We just hope that we could be a part to save the earth from premature extinction through instilling good practice and awareness to the current and younger generations.

  15. KYC on Oct 2, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    It is clear that life on earth is affected by climate change which has resulted in many species of wildlife becoming extinct or in danger of extinction. Humans are not spared either. More studies must be made on how the climate and environment changes have impacted their health and livelihood. In some parts of the world, people do not have access to basic necessities, health care and sanitary conditions. Everywhere I look, I see a lot of suffering. Yes, it is time to worry.

  16. Joy on Oct 1, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    I like Leonardo’s speech… it is true… most of us tend to pretend that climate change and global warming is not happening, that it is just a fiction, yet we can feel it and face it everyday. As long as we are not incorporating what is necessary to save the earth, we will end up killing it.

    It starts with the smallest and simplest of things like stop eating meat and fish! Stop hunting. If there is no demand, there’s not going to be supply. Stop open burning your rubbish which I still see happening in rural areas in Malaysia. Second, gas and fuel, why most every single person in the family own a car? Unfortunately convenience is greater than saving the earth and frankly I do not see this ever changing… but the motor industry can do something about this and start creating more affordable hybrid cars. People in the 3rd world country have their survival and stomach to worry more than thinking about global warming unless leaders of their country educate them, implementing recycling for them to maybe earn a living. I am sure there are ways to implementing saving our earth, all we got to do is take action, otherwise… be prepared as each year it will get warmer or certain places colder. Worrying is not enough.

    H E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, is an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Zava Damdin Rinpoche was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia. Zava Damdin Rinpoche is famed for his absolute guru devotion. In spite of the unlawful ban on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Zava Damdin Rinpoche remain devoted to the practice and has continued to see enormous growth around the world. Especially in Mongolia which has long held a strong historical and religious connection with Tibetan Buddhism. Back in 2016 H E Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae . More than 10,000 ordained monks and lay people attended the initiation in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Looking at those pictures in this blog says all, all monks and lay people were so blessed indeed. It has proven that the practice of Dorje Shugden is very popular . They were more blessed and fortunate as after the initiation, they were given a ‘heart’ crystal and a chakra which were consecrated during the sogtae ceremony. They are given as a blessing and reminder of the initiate’s commitments to Dorje Shugden, and also as a symbol of Dorje Shugden’s promise to protect them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing .

    .Great research by Dr Matthew William King on Dorje Shugden . It paints a thousand words of truth where more and more people understand better of Dorje Shugden. The practice of Dorje Shugden is often associated with Lamas in the Himalayan region in Tibet.
    No doubt due the efforts of Lamas in Tibet and Lamas in Bhutan the practice was promoted. Together, these enlightened masters proliferated the practice, authoring and composing texts and prayers to invoke the blessings and protection of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. In Mongolia, the practice’s popularity was due to Mongolia’s own lamas independently promoting and encouraging it. Mongolian lamas preserve the tradition of Dorje Shugden through active propitiation since then. The powerful Mongolian nation has indeed a long history and connection with Dorje Shugden the Powerful Protector. As expressed in the life of Venerable Choijin Lama, a State Oracle of Mongolia who took trance of Dorje Shugden among other Dharma Protectors. Interesting read of how Mongolia saved Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Precious thangkas of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Life Story one must not missed. As its very rare old thangkas tells us the life story of Lama Tsongkhapa. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi. Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. . Through deep study, profound practice and high attainments, Lama Tsongkhapa led a revival of pure Buddhist teachings and distilling the best teachings. His teachings became the basis for the establishment of the Gelug monastery, a monastic institution which survives to this day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such insightful life stories of a great Master with beautiful thangkas pictures .

    The Iceman mummy, Otzi, was discovered amidst sheets of melting ice on the border between Italy and Austria, at an altitude of 3,200 m above sea level. The 5300-year-old world’s oldest wet mummy Iceman so special as is invaluable for archaeology and as well as for medical science, genetics, biology, anthropology, and many other disciplines. The nature of his life and the circumstances of his death are the subject of much investigation. That’s interesting discovery, the clothes he wore and equipment he carried are unique.The alleged curse revolved around the deaths of several people involved with the discovery, recovery and subsequent analysis of Otzi’s body. The legend continues and these days, Otzi the Iceman rests in a refrigerated room at the South Tyrol Archaeological Museum in Bolzano, Italy. Each year thousands of visitors visited his mummified remains contained in a special cold cell at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, Italy.
    Interesting read
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    A sacred pilgrimage site for 22 centuries, this Dambulla cave is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla is a World Heritage Site in 1991. King Valagamba of Anuradhapura in the first century built a temple in thankful worship. Located in central Sri Lanka, the Dambulla Cave Temple is a living Buddhist site that is focused on a series of five cave shrines.The place is worth a visit though, just for the stunning sculptures and paintings in this historical paradise. The site is remarkable in the Buddhist world with the continuous tradition of living Buddhist ritual practices and pilgrimage for more than two millennia. That’s interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Zasep Rinpoche points out, the practice of Dorje Shugden officially started in the Sakya school before it was embraced by the Gelugpas. Interestingly, this book also mentioned the great deeds of Dorje Shugden and how much this Dharma Protector has helped the Tibetan people as well and Tibetan Buddhism too.Zasep Rinpoche have touched the hearts of everyone he has encountered.

    As prophesies by Shakyamuni Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa is an emanation of the Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, and saint who lived in Tibet. His practice will instill deep wisdom and confers great blessing upon us. His pure teachings and activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. With the establishment of the Gelug monastery which survives to this day. Lama Tsongkhapa, considered one of the greatest Buddhist masters and philosophers of all time. There many benefits that arise from Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Merely by reciting Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra known as Migtsema mantra. is indeed very beneficial for everyone of us. We are so fortunate to learn and practices from our Guru.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great Master.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition centuries ago and only later widely practised in Gelugpa tradition. All these was stated by H.H Trijang Rinpoche in his work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. The throne holder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya. The practice of this Dharma Protector was later passed to his son the 31st Sakya Trizin Kunga Lodro who was believed to be the emanation of Dorje Shugden himself. Interesting facts. He even composed a Dorje Shugden prayer or Kangsol to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden. The prayer has since been well known and it is used to this day. The 39th Sakya throneholder Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen who also practised Dorje Shugden and praised Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Not only one but three Sakya Trizins who relied on Dorje Shugden and they referred to him as an enlightened being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing so as more and more practitioners know the truth and only truth that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being

Buddhism is one of the fastest growing religions in the west and have spreading further , all thanks to those highly lamas such as Gaden Tripas, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Wangyal, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin, Geshe Rabten, and so forth. Many people more people are becoming more aware of Buddhism and finding it a suitable way of life and religion.

    The Legend of the Mermaid is well known and told with different forms and endings in all the oral tradition of peoples linked to the sea. It was rumored that the mermaid has a magical treasure. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Interesting read mermaids were natural beings who, like fairies, who had magical and prophetic powers. We usually see it as in movie whether it do really exists no one have really seen it nowadays. While there is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. They depicted in operas, paintings, books and live-action films.

    Trance is a state of semi-consciousness in which a person is not self-aware. The person is in a deep state of distraction by some inner turmoil or some outer mental influence. Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. Listening the video tells us more about trance. Interesting to know, but we should not get involve in trances as advice. Its better get involve in Dharma practice and have our mind transform.
    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

    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
