Red on white…

Some things you just have to see no matter how you feel. It lets you know what happens behind the scenes. Things manufacturers do not want you to see, but you are stronger than that for you must see.

Yesterday, while I was on Twitter, one of my students Abby Foo posted a video of a baby seal being slaughtered. Apparently, this activity is carried out in Canada EVERY YEAR

I was extremely disturbed and upset to see such cruelty inflicted on such harmless beings. About 95% of the hundreds of thousands of seals slaughtered are below 3 months old!! While many other countries such as America and the European Union has banned the use of seal fur, Canada has yet to implement the same ban… The rate of baby seals being killed increases every year.

In 2011, 38,000 harp seals were killed… In 2012, 70,000 harp seals were killed in commercial seal hunting. That’s twice the amount from the previous year!

These pups were brutally murdered by guns. The first shot usually does not kill them… but because they are too young to swim, they are trapped on ice where they are horribly clubbed to death. How cruel…

Thanks to the efforts of PETA and many other animal rights group, awareness has been brought to the cruelty behind the fur industry. Many in America and the EU have pledged to boycott Canadian seafood until Canada stops killing seals.

Please watch the video below and share it with everyone. We should also do our part to end this cruelty. It is through creating awareness that we can stop this cruelty. Always remember… when there is no demand, there will be no supply…

Please stop buying any animal products because it contributes to another being’s suffering…

 Adorable baby seal… how can anyone kill these cute creatures so cruelly…

 

 A massacre… thousands of baby seals, most below 3 months old are killed…

 

 Close range gun fire… most of the time, the first shot does not kill the seal… the hunters then go onto the ice and club them to death

 

 Bloody ice… so many lives lost…

 

 Imagine the fear in this seal’s mind… poor thing…

    Extreme cruelty by the Canadian and ruthless business man. They are just baby seals and kill them? Big shame to Canada for not taking any legal action against such activities. We should create more awareness to all on such killings and hope it will give pressure for the Canada government to stop it.

  2. Samfoonheei on Sep 2, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Extremely sad looking those pictures of red sea of baby seals. How can they do it ,they are mildly babies of just 3 month old.? Such a cruel act … a massacre.. Hope the Canadian government and more people will stop this senseless killing.Give those baby seals a chance to live,please do not hurt them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing so we can shared with more people not to harm all animals who are also our firends.And to create awareness to stop this cruelty. and stop using animal products.

  3. Lucas Roth on Apr 20, 2014 at 12:52 am

    This is extremely cruel and this should stop! I agree SAVE THE SEALS. I will never hurt an animal and everyone should never hurt them. IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT US. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  4. Sean Wang on Mar 11, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    This is disheartening and alarming. Why is this genocide allowed? This is a sign that human beings fail as thinking animals. People should understand that animals are capable of emoting and are not just mere products made for slaughter.

  5. Edward ooi on Jan 30, 2014 at 1:05 am

    Dear Rinpoche, the seals are just too cute. These people have no compassion for animals. Seals are one of the cutest animals in the whole world and they can kill them with their bare hands. I’m not saying that killing ugly animals is better than killing a cute animal, but when most people see really cute animals, they will think that they want to pet them or take them home. But these guys are just too cold-blooded.

  6. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 6, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    Sickening! Almost throw up upon the sight of massive slaughter. Think again, isn’t this similar to Holocaust? Just that the subject of mass murder is not human beings yet the objective behind it is still out of self centric based. We need no fur from animals, if technologies can overcome so many things in life we should consider using modern technologies to overcome the killing part. This is action is unnecessary when we have options. May the Buddha blessed the seals and may they are free from sufferings.

    对物质的执着,是导致人类常常为了自己的享受而伤害其他动物和众生的基本动作。在此再劝说大家不要和停止这种自私的所为。

    感恩仁波切的开示与分享

    很多时候,因为一些我们个人的欲望,却让我们把痛苦与伤害转移到别人或其他动物的身上

    然而其实,这痛苦与伤害,因果循环,最终还是会回到我们自己的身上的,那又何苦能

    感恩仁波切成立了克切拉佛法中心,让我们在这里学习与参与佛法工作与学习供养,透过供养八供,我们可以供上我们贪爱的物品以便累积功德、支持我们的修行及法愿。通过八供供养,我们可以削减原自贪爱物品的恶业。从而不会因为要满足自己的欲望,再伤害其他的动物与人

    感恩仁波切

    It is so devastating when I watch this video u can see the baby seal is crying and screaming but hunter still can carry on kill. We all should really stop buying product make of animals skin if no demand than there will be no supply. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video with us.

  10. beatrix ooi on Jun 22, 2013 at 12:20 am

    Poor little baby seals! The way they beat and kill the seals is just way too cruel, not a word can describe their evil acts. How could they manage to kill all these cute little creatures? How could they be so inhumane? The way the seals die is just really harsh and pity, but they was nothing they could have done to save their families, friends nor themselves.
    Canada should really stop any activity that is related to killing! The animals do not deserve that, and if this continues the animals will soon be extinct. How much negative karma the people have collected…sad…

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 11, 2013 at 1:58 am

    Both the seals and the sealers who kills them what karma they are creating and have created to play out such a drama. Hope the Canadian government will wake up and stop this senseless killing that has not benefit for their economy or otherwise.

  12. Girlie OOI on Jun 7, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Looking at the picture of the white baby seal, reminds me of the soft toy I bought those years ago. I bought on impulse because I could not resist those big round eyes, looking up at me from the shelf.

    Now as I read this post, I find that the innocent ones lost their lives so that us humans can have their fur.

  13. Albert Ratchaga on Jun 7, 2013 at 2:09 am

    when there is a dark side, there’s always a bright side also. It is sad to see such cruelty act, people killing the seal like they are playing computer games where they kill a thousand monster in the game, their ignorant has took over their guilt feeling, it’s really sad.

    According to peta: Every year, the Canadian government allows sealers to shoot and bash in the heads of baby seals. Sealers then hook the seals in the eye, cheek, or mouth and drag them across the ice in order to avoid damaging their delicate fur.Many of the seals have not even eaten their first solid meal or taken their first swim before they are killed.

    But at the same time, many people will also stand out to stop these cruelty activity. there is a link here which I found on internet where we can also contribute our effort from distance in helping to push for the stopping of killing more seal in Canada.

    Please be kind to animal and put a stop to it.

    This is extremely disturbing, I do not know how people could go through with such actions just to make money. It is very sad to see the whole white surface smeared with blood from being shot and clubbed to death. I really do not want to imagine the cries the baby seals have whilst being placed in such a situation. I do not understand what people would want to purchase their skin just to wear on themselves, when man made products such as polyester could already do the same job as to keep warm or look similar. Im glad for PETA to spread their awareness although they may still be responsible for the many deaths of cats and dogs, they still do create awareness of those animals in need and I hope more people would stop buying seal skin products. We create the demand and these people would want to create the supple, even if we are just one person by joining together we can create less of a demand for them to want to create that supply. I hope these hunters would realise what they are doing is cruel and stop it. Thank you for sharing this awareness Rinpoche.

    Animals can smell the stench, hear the sounds and often see the slaughtering of those before them. As the animals struggle from fright, the senseless workers imposed cruelty on them and took sadistics pleasure from such actions. Every normal human being will hate any cruelty, mistreatment, abuse or sufferings imposed on any living thing, whether human or animal. In a perfect world, we would live in harmony. Its the biggest sin to kill, especially with cruelty inflicted on others… There is no place for these kinds of humans on our planet… In future, history will look back on these still cruel times and say, “Why did we let it happen?” It’s indeed sickening to see! As stated in the wisdom words of George Bernard Shaw: “We are the living graves of murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites. How can we hope in this world to attain the peace we say we are so anxious for?” OM MANI PADME HUM.iIiaIa

  16. June Tang (KHJB) on May 27, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    This is truly horrble news to read !! I don’t get it why would they kill such harmless animals !!Such inhumane action,we don’t have the right to killing animals…this is so cruel and unnecessarY .
    “Please STOP ALL THE KILLING !!!”

  17. Kelvin Yong on May 27, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    No one in the right mind will commit to such an action. The action of taking a life is not easy and i wonder what is going through their mind when they are doing the killing.

  18. Jessica Yap on May 24, 2013 at 4:01 am

    Saying that this is horrible would be the understatement of the century.. Us humans are really the worst animals ever. I cannot imagine killing a less than 3 months old baby for the skin!

    How sick can we be to do this to another creature? And the best part is that we are killing them for their fur.. We can very well use other alternatives to replace fur, thus avoiding the need to kill these poor defenseless creatures..

    When we educate ourselves, and keep ourselves updated on what us going on, we can help prevent killings like this from happening. Could you bring yourself to buy the coat if I showed you how the fur was obtained?

    STOP THE BUYING, SAVE THE ANIMALS’ LIVES.

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche.

  19. Jutika Lam on May 22, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    OMB!!!! What is going on with the world (or precisely Canada….. why does The Canadian Government not want to put a permanent ban on the killing of the seals.

    It is just so sad to see all these poor seals, just a few weeks old getting shot and beaten by clubs….

    I just can’t imagine how much pain and suffering all these seals have to go through just to end up being skinned which of course results of the death of another seal.

    It is no surprise to me that every year there is at least one animal species that faces extinction… being wiped of the face of the Earth forever.

    What I think people should do is that they should stop buying all products and clothes that involves the killing of innocent animals such as seals.

    Thank you Rinpoche for spreading the news.

    Love
    Jutika

  20. Felix Kong on May 22, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    70,000 harp seals were killed in Year 2012, this is a scary number …Very sad… One day sure seals will disappear from this world… Please stop buy any animal product to show your LOVE and CARE to animals.

  21. AdelineTan on May 22, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    It is so heart breaking seeing these cruel people killing those baby seals in such a gruesome way. Their lives were sacrificed just like that due to human’s greed. The baby seals are so cute and adorable and never heart anyone. We must stop buying products made from animal’s parts, when there is no demand in the consumers market the animals will not be sought after. Thanks to PETA’s effort for creating awareness to stop killing and hurting animals, we must support them.

  22. sweekeong on May 22, 2013 at 9:13 am

    It is really gruesome and horrible feeling seeing the baby seals all in blood. The best one can do is create awareness about the clothes, apparels, and products which may contain animals. It is doing the hunters a service by not creating a demand for animals furs. Therefore they no longer have the choice to work in such jobs.

  23. Erickksiow on May 22, 2013 at 1:09 am

    Really wish Killing will end. It is sad to read and saw about Killing Animals and Humans to Humans too.

    Thank You Rinpoche for creating the awareness.

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  24. beatrix ooi on May 21, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    This is so cruel, I feel so sorry for the baby seals. They are literally born to be killed, the only thing they had before they are slaughtered was a very short lifespan of 2-3 months. From birth to death, there wasn’t a thing that they could have done wrong to deserve such consequences within that short period of life.
    It’s very scary to see the snowy white ice ground covered with all the blood, it makes me feel very sad for the seals, especially for those parents who witnessed the dying process of their babies, there was nothing they could have done to save their lives.
    I hope such cruelty will stop soon so that less animals will have to suffer.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  25. Darren Kechara Paradise on May 21, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Oh my…. Those disturbing images burnt forever on my corneas… Can’t believe these happen to be happen in country like Canada…

  26. Lim (KH JB) on May 20, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    May Dharma spread through all over very single site of the world, so that everyone may get to know Dharma hence generate more Bodhicitta to prevent killing.

    Om Mane Peme Hum…

  27. Patsy on May 20, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    This is so disturbing! What type of species are these murderers! They are not human! How can they enjoy killing? Laughing and clubbing the seals to death! So sad, if only they knew that their karma will catch up on them.

  28. William on May 20, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Please save the seals!!! We are no longer in the stone age where we need animal fur to keep warm. We have other materials now and should leave the animals alone. They are innocent. It is because there are still demand in the world that makes this industry thrive and man seek for profits.

    Do not wear fur for you know that you are contributing to the bad karma that was created in the cruel killing of the seals every year. Your small step will make a big difference.

  29. Bradley Kassian on May 20, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    This disgusts me beyond belief about my country. I’ve signed potitions against this before. I can’t even believe it’s sanctioned by the government. This is just plain inhumane, all in the name of culling a population because of a what if scenario. Too many, and they will exhaust their food supply and starve. Theres no way to prove that, nature has a way of balancing everything out. Two, the excuse to use this as an opportunity to create jobs, and provide income for familys is appalling. There are plenty other kinds of careers out there. Don’t be lazy go back to college and upgrade. Do something you enjoy that does not give harm to other beings. Some of these people go out there and whack seal babies well their parents watch. It’s horrible. I don’t know why the eastern part of my country allows this practice. I am glad the western provinces care more about conservation, and protecting wildlife.

  30. Julien Roth on May 19, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you Peta for doing this. This video better spread awareness of this stupid, cruel and uncompassionate thing. I couldn’t believe it when i saw it. That people actually treat seals this way, and that nobody cares. Who is the right mind would do or even think of such a thing. Shame on them. I dont mean to sound rude or anything, but this is stupid, and just idiotic. I hope that people do stop killing these seals for whatever reason, they deserve to live. Thank you Rinpoche, i hope that by Rinpoche putting this up on the blog will help the spread of awareness.

  31. tenzin llhamo on May 19, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    It was really painful to watch such video. I am really amazed with those people. Shooting and hacking them like they are nothing. They are just babies! How can we as sane people do such things? Have they no compassion left in them? And why do people even want to wear a dead seal’s fur on them and pay thousands for it? I have no idea! With all that crying and waning… I really hope that the killing will stop and thank you PETA for always creating awareness for everyone around the world to see and be aware of cruelty.

  32. tenzinkhenchen on May 19, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    I hate it when people use animals for their own benefit instead of showing some love and care to them. Animals are not meant to be produce but our friends.

    These people do not realise that they are causing harm and that is why they do it. They do not know that animals are capable of feeling pain. They think that they are just harvesting crops.

    A ban needs to be in place for these ruthless murders.

  33. edward ooi on May 18, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    I feel so sad for the baby seals. They all looked so cute, anyone who buys animal products is damn cruel. I am sorry that swear in this comment, I felt too much anger. Because I’m dying to pet a seal yet these cold blooded seal killers would kill them without any mercy. There is one part where one of the workers run towards the seal and killed it. I hope Canada will stop this cruel action right now.

  34. Yvonne Yap on May 17, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    Human is the most terrible animal ! the seals so cute and never hurt anyone.
    Why human so like that ?????
    Please”STOP”killing.

  35. adeline woon on May 17, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    I have been supporting Senator Harb’s cause for opposing commercial seal hunt in Canada by sending letters to other Senators and signing petitions. He introduced the Bill S-210 in the Senate for 3 times in since 2009. He has worked hard on this bill and it seems that the public are supporting it. The last time (May 2012) Senator Harb introduced this bill has again faced considerable opposition.

    Beneficial things always have lots of obstacles mainly due to the selfish minds of a few individuals. Selfish mind is so dangerous that it goes all the way to make sure one’s desire is being met regardless of the lives that will be sacrificed in the process.

    We need to continue to support Senator Harb and everyone else to continue to support this cause. For more information on Senator Harb, please see http://macharb.ca/en/

  36. Chris on May 17, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    This is very cruelty to me. Like i say, who’s giving us the right to kill all these animal? Especially those harmless one. Imagine someone take a gun pointed on you, how do you feel that kind of helpless and fear feeling? Kesian to all these animals. I hope there will be more and more organizers like PETA to create more awareness not to support animal product.

    • Thierry on May 17, 2013 at 5:54 pm

      Yet I have heard too often complains from people, even from friends, that I impose my views onto them when I post links like this one above on my facebook page (just ans simply that), when I do eat vegetarian in their presence (duuhhh – what about even that?).

      I have heard similar stories from some people about organizations like PETA that campaign against cruelty towards animals as being EXTREMISTS, as being BIAS, as being NAIVE and ANNOYING, CHILDISH even..

      But I ask, who is being extremist, bias, naive, childish and annoying a MILLION FOLD if not the people killing weaker beings such as baby seals?
      Isn’t the red-on-white the extremist activity, the terrorizing activity, beyond ANNOYING to a infinite degree, infinite; and I say beyond childish, for not worth of humanity!

      • David Lai on May 28, 2013 at 5:19 pm

        Dear Thierry,
        I am not sure what’s wrong about posting such things. It’s so sad that they would feel this way because I think they are really just trying to avoid facing the facts. They refuse to see the suffering induced by such powerful posts. It is really sad and sad for even more people who take animal suffering lightly. The truth of the matter is that animals suffer tremendously every day for our food and very few people really care but karma cares and that’s why many of us will take similar rebirths to the animals to suffer the same or a similar fate.

  37. sarahyap on May 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    It certainly is a very disturbing issue… Like so many animals around the world, exploited for the sake of economy and to feed into people’s desires… such a sad thing that people would want to wear dead animals on their bodies, how barbaric.

    I’m glad to hear that many people are now supporting PETA’s effort to place a ban on these killings… they make the effort by openly protesting against the killing of seals by abstaining from Canadian seafood. I think this is wonderful… It makes a very strong statement that people are willing to give up their attachments for the sake of these poor seals.

  38. Jace Chong on May 17, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    Would you kill your baby or your friend’s baby for money?

    Animals and us have no different, we are the citizen of this earth. How can because we are stronger than them, we have the right to kill them? It’s not fair. We should utilize our stronger strength to benefit the world not to create more harm.

    Please don’t create pain on others. It WILL come back to us.

  39. Lai on May 17, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    82% not kill by first bullet!! how cruel is the killing action!!
    sometime i do think.. do they kill because they are harmless???
    i hope not..
    no demand no selling..
    i will stop buying any animal products.

  40. abby f on May 17, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    what disturb me the most and make me feel sad is even when they hear the baby seal is screaming/crying, they still beat them to death! And they hit so many times to make sure the baby seal is dead. How can they just ignore and do it? I guess their heart became harden because they did it for so long already. How sad.

    It is sad to know that some people treat lives as just a product, and they totally ignore the fact that animals do have blood, and the blood colour is exactly the same as us! We are just another form of lives. They should stop as the world is against the killing of seal. The earth and all the living beings on this earth are belong to all of us! Canada should respect the world and stop it.

    • Sharon Saw on May 17, 2013 at 2:55 pm

      It is like those butchers who kill pigs, chickens, goats, cows everyday. From the videos i have seen, the animals scream and look around wildly with fear… the problem is people get used to the reactions of the animals until they are desensitized and worst is when they begin to enjoy it. In some of the videos you see them clubbing the animal and laughing… and these people will never know that their actions will cause them to be reborn in hell in a future life, so they just keep continuing their ‘work’. I hope that eventually, more and more people will begin to be aware of cause and effect and change their lives so that they can change their own futures.

      • Jay Jae on May 17, 2013 at 4:41 pm

        I agree with you sharon. Such acts of killing seems to be like “harvesting” flesh for food. They do not realize that these animals feel pain and the blood they see could be theirs if they switch roles.

        We need to put more emphasis in educating people to get them to understand that killing is not the right way to go in preserving nature’s way of keeping balance

    Have you ever wondered why we should make offering to the Sangha members? The Dharma is still available to us after Buddha Shakyamuni’s passing 2500 years ago because the Sangha members have been keeping it alive. The Sangha members study and learn Buddha’s teachings and then teach the Dharma to other Sangha and lay people like us. To support the Sangha is actually to support the continuance of the Dharma. If there is no more Sangha because of lack of support, the Dharma will also disappear. Since we have so much secular commitment and we are not able to dedicate our lives to spreading Dharma, we should support those who give up their secular lives to uphold the Buddha’s teachings.

    Why do we make water offerings to the Buddhas? Water offering is an easy and great way to help us to generate merits. We need to have merits in order to support our spiritual practice. By making water offering, we are cutting down our miserliness and is a direct method to create wealth and purify poverty.

    Vertigo is very common. Although most of the time, the underlying causes may not be life-threatening, but the symptoms alone are enough to affect our daily life. This article introduces a quick method (Epley Maneuver) to treat one of the most common type of vertigo which is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Step by step instructions with pictures and video are included in the article.

    Piriformis syndrome is an uncommon neuromuscular disorder that is caused when the piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is a flat, band-like muscle located in the buttocks near the top of the hip joint. Piriformis syndrome can be painful, but most people respond well to treatment. It is characterized by hip and buttock pain and many of the causes is still unknown. Piriformis syndrome is effectively treated with physiotherapy and medication in most cases.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear insight of Piriformis syndrome.

    Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to Insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhism, religion and philosophy that developed from the teachings of the Buddha. Hence there are many places of worship for Buddhists, where Buddhist temples come in many shapes. As listed in the articles , those temples were built in the early centuries were indeed ancients and beautiful. The best known are the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Boudhanath in Nepal, Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, India, Borobudur Temple in Indonesia and Wat Arun Bangkok, Thailand. Wish I could visit some of the wonders of the Buddhist world.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Dorje Shugden’s help is very swift and effective, that is why Tsem Rinpoche spreads and promotes Dorje Shugden practice so heavily. He has benefited from the practice himself and he wants us to be helped too. Dorje Shugden arose about 400 years ago, his manifestation is to help modern people to remove obstacles and help the practitioners in their spiritual practice.

    Many people think since the majority in Kelantan are muslims, there will not be many Buddhist worshipping sites. You will be surprised then! There are 3 large Buddhist temples in Kelantan, there are Wat Machimmaram, Wat Pikulthong and Wat Photivihan. Wat means Temple or place of worship. One of the temples houses the largest sitting Buddha statue in Southeast Asia. The statue is about 30m in height and 47m wide。

    Namche Bazaar

    Discovered many things about Nepal, its holds some impressive world rear and one of the most beautiful place in the world. The naturally blessed Nepal has many interesting places, fascinating views and exotic scenery. Being a gateway to Mount Everest and a best destination spotted by the mount climbers and trekkers was Namche Bazaar.

    With a very little population here it’s also a popular trading hub for Khumbu region. Most of the stalls rn by the Tibetan sells homemade products, hand craft and souvenirs. The main street into the village is lined with Tibetan run handicraft stalls and stores. Travelling to Namche Bazaar is not been easy but it has wonderful places to see and view because of its climate.

    Some interesting places to be visited was guided and the amazing pictures of Namche Bazaar was a good view.

    Always wondering what people do in Lhasa, a world famous city for the sites of historical interest in Buddhism and a spiritual land of the Tibetan. The information was super good, well guide over the things to do, places to stay and visit. Found it interesting and a marvelous place to visit as it takes only a few days to complete a full tour there. The scenery of ancient historical building and the rich cultural of the Buddhism can be seen. Even it will be a costly trip to Lhasa but the journey will be incredible. I think its a place must to visit once in lifetime .

    Comparison between the Shamarpa and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen

    Read how the Tibetan Leaders had treated the Sharmapa so shamefully, and undertand that this is not the only time that they do this. In fact, this is a constant in the Tibetan Leadership’s practice that had been hidden from the world until the start of their downfall and exodus out of Tibet 60 years ago. It is the same in how they had treated Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was well-liked by many wealthy patrons and the people.

    Do You Have Piriformis Syndrome?

    This is really something interesting, especially when you are suffering from pain and could never quite find the cure. This is something obscure and only if you chance upon this information will you finally understand how often this problem could be overlooked. It could help you solve the pains that never really go away.

    Holy relics embody the spiritual qualities, compassion and wisdom of the Buddha. Buddhists believe that by making offerings and prayers to Buddha’s sacred relics, they will be blessed and protected. The enshrinement of Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relics in China started with the tooth relic which is now housed in Lingguang Temple, Beijing. According to the Tang Dynasty’s records, China had 19 holy sites since the time of the Indian King Ashoka. Unfortunately, only a handful of these sites exist today. A total of 10 holy sites of China are listed here in this article:

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.

It says when the Buddha was born, all the gods, demigods and asura came to pay homage. Buddha proclaimed it will be his last rebirth in samsara.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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

DID YOU KNOW? One group of the beneficiary groups our #surplusfood programme really want to target are actually children. Based on our stats, 90% of the #children from the poor we are serving do not have enough or literally no money to spend for food in school. Hence the bread we are giving them are very #useful. So when #children don't have enough food to eat, they tend to have problems concentrating in class & that's the main reason why they tend not to do well in school. Without education they are highly unlikely to break their #poverty cycle. #Facts #BreakTheChains #foodbank #studies - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
