Dear friends around the world,

The amount of waste mankind creates on a daily basis is overwhelming. If we think carefully, we are in fact the most dangerous species on earth, hiding behind the guise of ‘mankind’ thinking that we can get away with things because we are more ‘superior’.

This mindset and way of thinking is wrong and very dangerous. The truth is that every single living being on this planet deserves the most fundamental right of all, which is to have the freedom to live. Instead of further destroying and exploiting the environment, mankind should instead put in more effort to care for the environment because no other species is in a position to do so.

Please read this article thoroughly; digest and realize the importance of this issue. We are the only ones who have the ability and influence to save our oceans and our planet.

CONFIRMED: Plastic Pollution Affects Deep Sea Animals

A new study revealed that plastic pollution has already reached deep oceans, negatively affecting deep sea animals.

The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, showed for the first time that microplastics are being ingested by deep sea animals, such as sea cucumbers, hermit crabs and squat lobsters, living at the depths of between 300m and 1800m.

“The main purpose of this research expedition was to collect microplastics from sediments in the deep ocean — and we found lots of them,” explained Dr Michelle Taylor of Oxford University’s Department of Zoology and lead author of the study, in a press release. Given that animals interact with this sediment, such as living on it or eating it, we decided to look inside them to see if there was any evidence of ingestion.”

The most common kind of plastics the researchers found inside the deep sea animals were polyester, nylon and acrylic. The researchers defined microplastics as particles under 5mm in length, which is roughly the same size as marine snow. Marine snow is the shower of organic materials that falls from upper waters to the deep ocean and which many deep sea creatures feed on.

These microplastics could enter the ocean via washing of clothes with synthetic material or from fishing nets. However, the researchers were baffled and alarmed at the same time when they discovered the microplastics they have observed were not found in the coastal areas but on the deep ocean, about a thousand miles away from land-based sources of the pollution.

“This result astonished me and is a real reminder that plastic pollution has truly reached the furthest ends of the Earth,” said Laura Robinson, Professor of Geochemistry in Bristol’s School of Earth Sciences, in a statement.

For the study, the researchers used a remotely-operated underwater vehicle to collect animal samples. The collected animals underwent different forensic laboratory techniques to identify the presence of microplastics in ingested materials of the deep-sea creatures.

    Because human wants convenience, so we invented many products that are actually harmful to our environment. It was due to ignorance I am sure, because in the past, there is no environmental issue and we don’t really study the impact. Nowadays, because we have suffered from the damage we did to our environment and we don’t want our next generation to suffer, there are more regulations and awareness campaign launched to educate people.

    Plastic is a very convenient invention, it holds things for us and it is reusable. But we did not think it is no biodegradable and when animals eat it by accident, it will cause them to die. Nowadays, there are many plastic wastes in the oceans, it is one of the causes of death for sea animals. Sea animals eat plastic by accident and they are not able to digest the it. As a result, it affects their digestive system and causes them to die.

    We have finally realised that and there are many awareness campaigns being launched all over the world to stop using plastic bags. In Malaysia, many cities have also banned the usage of plastic bag in the supemarket or they choose to use biodegradable plastic bag. People are encouraged to use their own reusable bags for their shopping. We may not reverse the damage we have done to our environment immediately but it will definitely change the situation slowly. Everyone has the responsibility to save and protect our environment but it has to start from ourselves first.

    The few minutes a day we spend on social media creating awareness for animals who cannot speak is purely spiritual and humanistic practice because we are trying to alleviate pain from another sentient beings and that makes us more spiritual, and that makes us more spiritual and more humane.

    This article serves as another example the callousness manner in which humans inhabit this world. It is not hard to see that the magnitude of plastic pollution carried to sea has significantly multiplied over the past several decades. In fact, the direct negative repercussions towards both marine and non-marine beings alike (including to humans), such as wildlife being injured due to entanglement or ingestion of the plastics found in the environment, to humans ultimately consuming the chemicals from the eroded plastic pieces; have been publicly made known for years. Yet for the sake of convenience, many still turn a blind eye and worse, out greed, some even try to downplay the magnitude of the plastic pollution. It is sad that people fail to comprehend that whatever we do will create an impact on the overall ecosystem and all living beings including us, humans. Presently, even though we are striving hard to clean-up and restore the beauty of the marine eco-system, it would have been in everyone’s better interests to have not polluted the ocean and caused this problem in the first place. That being said, no point crying over spilt milk and the good news is that all is not lost as things can still be turned around. All it takes is as little as for us to be conscious enough in our daily lives and change our lifestyle which can contribute to the reduction of plastic consumption. Naturally, it would be great if we can progressively do more to clean up the ocean pollution.

  7. wan wai meng on Feb 16, 2017 at 6:34 pm

    I can’t all the various impacts of microplastics, onto the survival of the many marine species. In some ways, if humans find marine life inedible, well thats one good news for marine life in away. Microplastics /microbeads are truly alarming and could damage the marine environment.

    The humans that eat ocean animals, are worried about the microplastics, that is one of the drivers for research into this phenomenon. We should ban microbeads/microplastics, it is poisoning these marine animals.

  8. Julien Roth on Feb 2, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    This is terrible. Absolutely disgraceful. I cannot believe that human kind has done this to the seas of our beloved world. The fact that these deep sea creatures are actually consuming and digesting all this plastic really makes me sick. I mean can you imagine eating plastic? Probably not right. Plastic is not edible. And yet they do.

    And that is not because they are dumb and choose to eat it. Its because the amount of plastic in the sea is just so much they cant help but consume it. We need to spread awareness about this situation and reduce, or better yet, prevent the dumping of plastic and other dangers objects into our seas.

  9. Pavara Lam on Jan 31, 2017 at 12:01 am

    It is really alarming to know that all our plastic items are ending up inside the ocean.
    Plastic is quite a marvelous material and it is just about everywhere from water bottles to money, in fact it is hard to live life without seeing a piece of plastic. Sadly as marvelous as plastic is it also has a downside, and that downside is that it can be ingested by animals and as a direct or indirect result kill them. Plastics also harm the environment since oil is required to produce it and when plastics are thrown away they take hundreds of years to decompose since many natural decomposers can’t break down plastics.

    I really hope that the people inhabiting the earth can take efforts to cut down the use of plastics to help save planet earth’s ecosystem.

  10. Stella Cheang on Jan 26, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. It is indeed alarming to learn that plastic pollution has reached the depth of the Earth. When plastic is ingested, it can get lodged in the windpipe, obstructing air flow when swallowed, eventually causing suffocation. Once in the digestive tract, plastic debris can either block the tract, or accumulate in the stomach, producing a false sense of fullness, causing the animal to stop eating, resulting in malnutrition as it slowly starves to death. Plastic is harmful to the environment too, as it will take thousands of years to break down. Please reduce the usage of plastic in our daily life, replace it with the recyclable and reusable materials.

  11. Alice Tay on Jan 26, 2017 at 12:02 am

    To keep our environment clean, we should have the practice to ensure the unused items that can be recycled and disposed correctly. For example, we can the follow the directions on the label and recycle the items container when the container is empty. We should not simply throw the empty container into the river/sea negligently. Consequences, many living beings in the river/sea are suffered due to the unmindful actions of human beings.

  12. Jace Chong on Jan 25, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this alarming issue.

    I agree that human are the most dangerous species on earth as we destruct everything that mother earth gives us. However, with media and education, we can slow down the situation.

    The micoplastics come from plastic or artificial products that we invent for our conveniences, but yet we forgot how these things will end on earth where most of them end up to be the cause of sickness for human and animals.

    We need to be more conscious in every action and invention that it would lead to our self destruction. May more people understand this and start adopting a more environmental friendly life style.

    Thank you.

  13. Shelly tai on Jan 25, 2017 at 12:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this depressing news, we human being out greed to satisfied our convenient that create all these suffering to all these sea creature they are all innocent they do not know why they have to suffer so much . We as a Dharma practitioner should apply what we have learn to apply on our daily life like be aware of our environment like recycle what we use and be responsible to what we do attempt a lifestyle that is eco friendly.

  14. TekLee on Jan 23, 2017 at 1:13 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. OMB, human’s activities to earth pollution has gone until that extend! It has done more harm than recover! From what I see in that video, human pollute the sea, deep sea, sea animal been fed by chemical, plastics, and in the end of the day, human eat the fish. I think this is the simplest karma. Human gotta face the cause and effect they did to the environment themselves. Pray that more and more human realize how much damage we’ve been done to the environment, and stop polluting the earth that we’re living in. Hope they understand, in the end of the day, who is going to face the consequences? We human, gotta face it back ourselves. _/\_

  15. Echeah on Jan 22, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    This is the age of convenience. The science and technology has been applied to provide creature comforts to the human race. New and more advanced materials have been created and research is based on mainly reducing cost and developing more innovative materials. Less emphasis is put into reducing waste/contamination and the impact of residues in the environment.
    Governments began to be concerned of the impact of these wastes and residues in their home turf (imports), but did not really care about what leaves the country (exports). So third world countries became the dumping ground of toxic chemicals. But we are interdependent. The nasty stuff they get rid of by export if overall harmful, might come back and bite them years later. Environmental degradation does not affect only a few backward countries but will have a ripple effect with larger impact. An easy reference is the transboundary haze that the entire South East Asian region has had to choke upon these days that comes from one country.
    Now global warming has become a serious world-wide phenomenon that many people still argue about. President Trump can even say “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive”! I find that entirely laughable due to the gross ignorance and stupidity behind that tweet.
    Countries are now becoming stricter in enacting regulations and even third world countries are already stepping up in developing regulations. However the product stewardship initiatives of industries usually start from when they buy raw materials to when they sell their manufactured goods. What happens after that is none of their business. They’ve already made their profit and will want to continue to do so. So they don’t tell you what’s in the product that could cause harm to health and environment. When the user doesn’t know what they’re dealing with, they can’t be entirely blamed for causing the destruction. The corporations have a major part to play, to inform, to educate and to assist in the safe use, handling and disposal of these ever so convenient and advanced products. Sadly, that is still not happening. They take the profit and run, and what is left is a global environment that is increasingly irreversibly destroyed.

  16. Lew on Jan 22, 2017 at 7:45 pm

    We really need to thank these researchers for doing these studies and tell us the truth. Normal people like us would not even understand the problems we cause when we use plastics on a daily basis.

    The research didn’t say how did the plastics travel so far till the furtherest part of the ocean, but I am curious to know. I hope people will be aware or mindful of what we use daily in order to help curb this issue.

  17. Fong on Jan 21, 2017 at 10:56 pm

    We live in a world of following what others do – herd mentality. We assume that it is ok to consume plastic and discard it without a thought. We assume that if others are doing it, it is ok for us to do the same.

    We have to be aware of our actions and the long term effects. So, we have to be mindful and not consume so much plastic. It is about educating the masses about the long term ill effects of plastic on our Earth. Then, we will be more conscious and modify our consumption pattern accordingly.

    It is akin to dharma. If we are not mindful of our actions, the karma created will come back to bite us. So, we have to study the dharma and apply it.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for drawing our attention to what is happening in this world with excessive and thoughtless consumption and making us reflect on the situation.

    Recently i have saw a clips where a biotech company in India has used natural starch, vegetable oil derivatives and vegetable waste are used to produce Edible Bags. These products are non-toxic to the environment, animals and plants. This company claims that their product is edible and could be the food for many small insects and fishes. This is definitely a very exciting news, billions of insects, animals, sea creatures and lives could be safe, and in return, we are able to lives in a cleaner and healthier environment

    Watch this:-

    It is very sad that the effect of pollution and rubbish is getting worse. All of us are living in this world and have the responsibilities to take care of our environment. We can stop all this by starting from our self. Always be mindful, throw rubbish in the right place and use more recycle items.

  20. Vivian Ong on Jan 21, 2017 at 1:28 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is indeed alarming to see that microplastics are able to penetrate the deep sea ocean and affect the animals that live in it. The only way to stop this pollution is to be mindful. We need to pause and think before we throw anything into the sea. We don’t know where the things that we throw might end up. Every sentient beings deserve to live in a clean environment even we as human would not like to live in a place is dirty and polluted.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  21. Choong on Jan 21, 2017 at 1:19 am

    The global problem with plastics pollution reminds me of the parallel we all face – the generation of negative karma.

    Both are not obvious to us – that we are generating negative karma all the time and so are we plastics pollution. We become not mindful of both. We behave as if it does not exist or is not a/our problem…

    Until it bites back!

    And when it bites back such as when we see the above clear evidence of plastics pollution, due to our deeply etched habits and self-centered behavior, we find it hard to change or believe it to be someone else’s problem.

    Some do transform to better action of course but as a whole, the strong gravitation to our habits wins. That is why public education and awareness campaigns is very important and so too is its parallel – the spreading of the Dharma. _/:\_

  22. Samfoonheei on Jan 20, 2017 at 7:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing Its alarming that plastic pollution has already reached deep oceans which has negatively affecting deep sea animals.The researchers found inside the deep sea animals were polyester, nylon and acrylic.That is bad enough causing ingestion in deep sea animals, such as sea cucumbers, hermit crabs and squat lobsters .Sooner or later they are becoming extinct due to all these plastic pollution. Deep sea animals have the freedom to live too. Do hope all of us take responsibility to care for the environment. Attitude and educating ourselves and sharing with others on the best and safest ways of disposal of rubbish will be wonderful.

  23. Stella Cheang on Jan 20, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. It is so sad to learn about the negative impact of our human lifestyle and usage on the animals living in deep sea. Nothing on this Earth can escape our influence because we are a member and a crucial one for all intent and purposes, of this big ecosystem call Earth. I hope through these discoveries and learning, it will awaken our conscious to do something to preserve Earth.

  24. Uncle Eddie on Jan 20, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    In one previous blog-report, it was predicted by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, that discarded plastic will soon ourweigh fish in the World’s ocean! A Study has found that 32% of plastic packaging escapes waste collection, and is eventually deposited into the world oceans. With datas collected in a reveiwed study of more than 200 studies and 180 interviews from experts, the afforesaid percentage of plastic wastes is expected to occur in the “high leagage” markets in developing countries where sanition systems are often very unreliable. But, as a great relief, the MacAurther report has urged plastic producers to step up and address the problem with the development of plastic products that are “reusable” and easily recycled and should be less toxic in nature. At least there is this glimmer of hope if any, in the phenomena! Om mani Padme Hung.

    Thank you for your kind sharing and reminder for the essentials of drinking water. We commonly hear the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, to ensure that we are getting enough water to maintain an healthy lifestyle and not for thirst.

    Most healthy people can stay hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they feel thirsty. For some people eight glasses a day might be enough, while others might need more.

    China has a long history in an ancient civilisation dated back to 4,000 BCE. A country filled with many beautiful mountains, highlands, ranges, hills, plains and so forth. Mount Wutai, known Wutaishan is one of them and is a sacred Buddhist site in Shanxi Province. It is one of the four great sacred Buddhist mountains of China as well as a World Heritage Site. A place worth visiting as it is rich in Buddhist culture and has a lot of spectacular natural scenery. With an altitude of 3061.1 m, amazingly gorgeous scenery Mount Wutai as the only one Bodhimanda of both Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism in the world. It has many historic valuable religious sites to admire which is associated with Manjushri a very special place in the more than 1,000 years of Buddhist and Chinese history. Manjushri embodies the perfect wisdom of the universe. China is considered to be the Land of Manjushri where the people are blessed with intelligence. It is also a wonderful place to see the sunrise in the morning from this location. Reading this article remind me of my pilgrimage trip with Kechara.
    Interesting read. It would be easy for anyone going on pilgrimage to see the beauty and sacred place of the Land of Manjushri
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this detailed article.

    Beautiful Shanti Stupa in Pokhara being the first World Peace Pagoda in Nepal . It is a massive Buddhist Stupa with relics of the Buddha, having an immense role to beautify the Pokhara valley. It is situated at Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. It is a perfect pilgrimage place for some and holiday place to tourist where it provides a clear view of the Himalayan range. The hilltop location also provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Pokhara Peace Stupa is popular with locals, pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Looking at the beautiful pictures paints a thousand words. Merely looking at the beautiful Shanti Stupa is a blessing.

    The Buddha Statue of Hyderabad is a monolith located in India. It is the world’s tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha, erected on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of Hussain Sagar Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the heart of Hyderabad. Absolutely amazing, architecture carved by 200 sculptors which took them about two years to complete. The statue was chiseled out from a white granite rock. The man behind the iconic monolithic statue is other than the famous sculptor and Indian architect Sattanatha Muthaiya Ganapathi Sthapathi. A magnificent view for one to see at night.

    Thank you for the advice and the sharing. Practicing the Dharma is the best, and not practicing is the worst. Prayer is rooted in the belief that there is a power greater than oneself that can influence one’s life.

    It is very true we must be prepared for our death prior for me to know the Buddha teaching. Dharma is not about just trying to improve oneself. The Dharma is really working for other beings.

    Big statues are such a blessing merely by looking at it. Buddha sculptures serve as visual imagery intended to narrate the various aspects of the Buddha’s life and lessons. Having a Buddha statues in Gompa helps students to accumulate inconceivable merit, to create the cause of enlightenment for oneself and for other sentient beings. Looking at those pictures , all those involved in this no a easy project tells us more. Rejoice. With the guidance of Rinpoche , all goes well to where it is as today. We are indeed very fortunate to have Rinpoche bringing Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. For-most having these incredible statues at Gompa and at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. In Buddhism, practicing generosity is to help train the mind in a way conducive to attaining enlightenment. Giving serves as a way to eliminate one’s greed and ill-will and expecting nothing in return. By giving away what is valuable, we reduce attachment by letting them go So wonderful of CK Liew giving a gift and card to Rinpoche , with love.

    Life is all about growing and developing. We learn through training given by our teachers. Nor matter how hard the training takes is for our own good. Training instils loyalty and commitment , challenges where we learn new skill , knowledge, information for the betterment of this life alone. Those incredible training given by our teacher will shape us , transform us in away to improve self- esteem, motivation, and confidence. Training in the Dharma is teaching us how to leave our samsaric trap and transforming us to be a better person.. At the end of the day it will last us for our whole life and in spiritual terms for lifetimes. Any failures we don’t blame our teacher, its ourselves to blame. Through hardship, patience , we learn. Have a strong will powerful, accept and through determination ,self-belief and hard work, we will get through to where our goal is.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Inspiring reading this beautiful post were there is a lot to learn. Let’s face it. No matter who we are, at some point, we will feel insulted by the remarks of others. Silence is the best solution. The only way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If we do feel like there’s any truth in the insult, make the decision to only take the information that’s helpful to our growth. Then, ignore the rest. Keep calm and control the anger in ourselves. Its our choice whether or not to take it, laugh it off and keep it moving. Quickly forgive and move on.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. Born as a prince , gave up everything to become a monk . Saw the outside palace for the first time. Met an old man, a sick person, a corpse being carried to cremation, and a monk in meditation beneath a tree. He had a traumatic encounter with suffering and pain life made him decided to leave behind a Palace life to comprehend the nature of sufferings. Wonderful video to watch.

    Thank you Joy for this sharing of Rinpoche with us . Through reading this post we have a better understanding of Rinpoche. Inspecting the cleanliness of altar and the surrounding of homes is more or unless teachings or training us . With the right motivation and attitude, when we invoke daily doing our sadhana, it becomes easy to collect merits an offering to the Buddhas. Rinpoche extended all the way out, teaching the Dharma as well as seeing students living conditions and welfare. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our teacher who cares more than Rinpoche himself.
    Thank you Rinpoche , may Rinpoche have a swift return , continue turning the wheel of Dharma.

    Wangze is an emanation of Manjushri as an enlightened being, will assist us when we are having to face difficult situations or dealing with difficult people . With a good motivation and right visualisation, Wangze’s practice will remove our obstacles and purify our negative karma. Relying Wangze with trust will assists us to exert control over our own minds our words transforming difficult situations into opportunities.

    Watched this powerful, heartfelt and painful video again . Earthlings is a American documentary film about humanity’s use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. There is a strong and insightful message in this documentary film which took SIX years to make. Not an easy task after all but managed to obtain through hidden camera. More people will be aware of those sufferings of those kill for the human greed exploitation of animals. It also shed light the truth the very truth of the sufferings of those innocent been exploited. Interesting read and great video to watch.
    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.
    4 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about.
