Stronger Bond Between Malaysia and China

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak (L) shakes hands with Chinese President Xi Jinping during a meeting at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing on May 30, 2014 AFP/Jason Lee.

Dear friends around the world,

I have lived in Malaysia for a large part of my life and it is a beautiful country. The people of Malaysia are gentle, kind and harmonious in general and I have deep appreciation for their sincerity and generosity which has helped not just myself but also my monastery in India.

I also appreciate the inter-racial and inter-religious harmony that is a hallmark of Malaysian society. Some first-time visitors to Malaysia are surprised to learn that the beautiful Malays, Indians and Chinese get along so harmoniously. I must say that the founding fathers did an excellent job in laying the foundations for modern Malaysian society today.

And so, I am very happy to see this new partnership between Malaysia and China and I feel it is a big step forward for the Malaysian transportation industry. There will be people who rejoice and there will be people who don’t; nonetheless, China’s growing influence is undeniable. Over the years, China has gone from strength to strength and has overtaken the United States of America to become the world’s largest economy. Thus, the Malaysian government’s work in maintaining good ties with China is a good way forward and will pave the way for more large projects in the future that will benefit both countries.

I am happy for Malaysia that this relationship with a super power like China will benefit my host country. Malaysians like anyone else deserve a good economy and growth in our country. The more Malaysia strikes these deals, the better it will be for Malaysia. Malaysia boleh!

I offer my good wishes to my host country’s growth and general peace in the world.

China Set to Build, Finance Malaysia’s East Coast Rail Line Project

Posted 31 Oct 2016 19:52 Updated 31 Oct 2016 20:00

BEIJING: China is set to build and finance the RM55 billion (US$13.1 billion) East Coast Rail Line (ECRL) project that will span four states in peninsular Malaysia, according to Malaysia’s secretary-general to the Treasury.

Dr Irwan Serigar Abdullah said Malaysia and China will sign the Framework Financing Agreement and Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) Contract for the project on Tuesday (Nov 1).

Dr Irwan spoke to Malaysian media upon arrival in Beijing on Monday as part of the delegation accompanying Prime Minister Najib Razak who is on a six-day visit to the Chinese capital.

He said the railway link will lower transportation costs between the west and east coasts of peninsular Malaysia, bring down prices of goods and reduce travelling time.

“It will also help create more jobs and business opportunities for Malaysians, especially the rural folks,” Dr Irwan said.

Although the agreement has not yet been finalised, Dr Irwan said the financing offered by China was a lower rate compared to the international market, coupled with a long repayment period of 20 years.

He said the project was crucial to Malaysia and should not be delayed as it would not only spur the country’s transportation industry development, but also help to speed up growth of small towns along the way.

The project would also assist in the transfer of technology in the railway industry, he said. “Future development of railways is the in thing, and Malaysia needs to make the move in getting the technology and new systems in railway construction,”he said.

Dr Irwan said the project will be built in phases: First from Port Klang to Dungun in Terengganu followed by Dungun to Tumpat.

PM Najib, in tabling the 2017 Budget, said the project would be launched in phases and would connect townships such as Port Klang, ITT (Integrated Transport Terminal) Gombak, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Kota Baru and Tumpat.

The construction of the project is expected to start next year and it is due to be complete by 2022.

    China, has made many nations in the world prosperous. They do not care about the customs and politics and will not meddle in local politics or affect the government they are collaborating with. They are mainly interested in doing business that will help them and the nation they are engaging with. African can be thought as showcase nations of China’s expansion of their influence on a global scale.

    I heard about Chinese people not needed a visa to come to Malaysia, well here it is “Between March 1, 2016 to December 31, 2017, Chinese citizens do not require a visa for Malaysia for a stay of up to 15 days, online registration prior to arrival required” – Travel from China for Chinese citizens have just became that much easier.

  2. Anne Ong on Nov 30, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    This is good news and am very happy to hear. Hope it will bring a brighter future for Malaysia and the people here in the coming years. Thanks for sharing this good news Rinpoche.

  3. Kb Thapa on Nov 18, 2016 at 12:34 am

    Nice to China & Malaysia friendship tying more strongly. It will defiantly will help Malaysia to bring more investments from china and create more jobs and business opportunities. China an emerging superpower due to its large and stable population, its rapidly growing economy and military spending and capabilities and tradition. China influence continues to grow all over the world…

  4. Adeline Tan on Nov 10, 2016 at 12:00 am

    It is wonderful to see Malaysia and China have foster a good bilateral relationship for trade and transportation industry development. This project would assist in the transfer of technology in railway construction.
    Since China has become the world’s largest economy,China growing influence is undeniable, many developing countries like the Pillipines and other Asean countries would like to be friends and have new partnerships with China too.

  5. Lin Mun on Nov 8, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    This is a good news to see 2 countries having a joint ventures in building the infrastructure of Malaysia. China has indeed grown so fast and even overtook United States of America. With the strong finance support, Malaysia would be able to build the important railway connecting the East and the West.

    This investment will surely create a lot of positive outcome such as job opportunities, shorter traveling time, improve connectivity and transportation of East and West Malaysia.

    I hope the relationship of both government will go stronger for more prosper and development ventures which will benefit both countries.

  6. TekLee on Nov 8, 2016 at 2:35 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. China indeed has become a stronger country now in term of economy. The new partnership between Malaysia and China can really help the growth of Malaysia. The most important fact is, it benefits a lot of Malaysian, in terms of job opportunity, economy growth, which indirectly will help the current homeless folks issue. As many of the street clients are jobless, and some from other states are difficult to find job in KL.
    First was the panda that China gifted to Malaysia government, now the ECRL project, Malaysia relationship with China will grow stronger and stronger. This will help Malaysia a big leap in economy. As a Malaysian, and a Chinese, I am happy that our government has such a good relationship with China. Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

  7. Echeah on Nov 8, 2016 at 2:18 am

    Seeing the handshake gives me a good feeling. It is better to engage rather than antagonise. That China has become the world’s biggest economy is something that cannot be denied. As Jack Ma recently said, the Chinese came to Malaya 200 years ago to survive, but today they come to Malaysia to enjoy life. China has made great strides since then, and at super speed.

    It’s wiser to prosper thy neighbour because if they are happy, thou art happy. When we look at a neighbour with disdain and suspicion, then we have no peace and will live in fear.

  8. Vivian Ong on Nov 8, 2016 at 1:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article. It is indeed a good news for Malaysia that China will be building and funding the railway line of the east coast of Malaysia. Through this project, it will benefit the country because of the knowledge and transfer of technology from China to Malaysia. It will also benefit the citizens as it will create more job opportunities and can travel easier without much hassle.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  9. Pastor KH Ng on Nov 6, 2016 at 10:19 pm

    Malaysia being a multi-racial and multi cultural thrive on its own diversity and all races and cultural live is relative peace and harmony.
    The second largest race in Malaysia is the Chinese; usually third of fourth generation Chinese; whose contributions lends Malaysia its own unique identity. This perhaps why China find Malaysia such a good friend and a suitable place to invest. This, couple with the fact the Malaysia is the first in the region to establish diplomatic relations with China in 1974, makes Malaysia a favorite neighbor for China.
    Certainly, this is good news for Malaysia, in this times of domestic and global economic slowdown. Bravo for for China and Malaysia.

  10. Soon Huat on Nov 5, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    I am working in China now and I am glad to see Malaysia government forged even stronger bond with super power country like China. I am in China witnessed China has super advanced transportation system such as Metro Train, Bus, even car park. I am truly impressed with that. ECRL project definitely will help to connect east to west coast.

    I do hope that we also can take the opportunity to extend Buddhism to China which I think they need most now. They are financial rich but spiritual poor. I believe China can be stronger with spiritually rich. Buddhism can benefit more people through China.

    • Joy Kam on Nov 5, 2016 at 11:10 pm

      Hi Soon Huat,

      Thank you for commenting and sharing your experience since you are working in China now. Wow, you must share more! 🙂

      I guess it is true and confirms what we heard about the new rich in China, that they are rich in the material world but poor in spiritual world. And the richer they get, the more unhappiness, emptiness, stress, depression sets it because true happiness and peace of mind cannot be bought unfortunately. And all that chasing after wealth will eventually drag you down as it is never ending desire, never satisfied.

      It is good that you can experience this first hand. Who knows, perhaps you can start bringing/sharing Rinpoche’s teachings there. Who knows who you might end up meeting/sharing with. Start with the simpler basic topics and ones that may appeal to their mindset. There are so many topics to choose from this blog so do explore all the various categories. I’m sure you will find lots to share. Again good to see your comments here 🙂

      • Soon Huat on Nov 6, 2016 at 3:04 pm

        Thank You Joy. I will definitely read nmore article from Guru’s blog; it contains all the teaching from Guru. As a student, it is minimum homework we need to do.

  11. Colin Tan on Nov 5, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    The stronger bond between Malaysia and China will definitely bring in more investment to different sectors in Malaysia. There are commitments to enhance cooperation in various areas including seaports, air transport, railway, trade, manufacturing, etc. Take railway (ECRL) for example, when the infrastructure is in place with financing and technology transfer received from China, small towns along the way will have tremendous development and tourism will boost up too.
    There is also the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), formerly known as One Belt One Road, where China to provide ASEAN member states, to connect Europe, Middle East, Africa and the rest of Asia to accelerate the flow of goods and capital from each of those places. China Southern Airlines had launched its first direct flight from Guangdong to Melaka in September this year. Melaka government also initiated a project to bring in China investments to build a deep sea port in Melaka. All these are exciting news to Malaysia, especially Melaka, expecting the significant opportunities and potential for growth in this country, and better bilateral relationship with China too.

  12. Stella Cheang on Nov 4, 2016 at 10:38 am

    It is in Malaysia interest to foster a stronger bond with China for all the following reasons that will propel the economy of the world into the next decades. China is now the world’s largest economy. Mandarin is taught in schools right across the world. A new Silk Road is underway for international trade, made up of roads, high-speed railway lines, bridges and airport hubs, stretches from Shanghai and Beijing through Xinjiang to Kazakhstan, Pakistan and Afghanistan before making its way to Western Europe. On the other hand, what Malaysia has to offer seemed a pin drop in the ocean. It is a smart decision from our leadership to build this relationship now. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article with us.

  13. Bradley Kassian on Nov 4, 2016 at 1:56 am

    Fostering closer ties with China is the only reasonable way to move forward this century. Economically, China’s influence continues to grow, and by having stronger peaceful connections we can start to see more peace in the South China Sea. I personally don’t agree with some policies China has done internally, but externally the sleeping dragon has awoken and we can see this country’s influence becoming centre stage among world powers.

  14. Joy Kam on Nov 4, 2016 at 1:49 am

    It looks like China is everywhere and there is really no stopping them and everyone seems to be wanting a piece of that pie too! It is inevitable, everything we own these days are almost always “made in China”. You cannot avoid it even if you want to, so I guess might as well embrace it and see the positives and work with it. And I’m glad Malaysia is smart enough to see this and to shape the future with the strongest super power nation in the world right now.

    They’ve come a long way and they’ve worked really hard to reach this place. I remembered hearing this prediction a long time ago that China will rise once again to be a strong force in the world, and this has certainly come true. I know many people do not like China because of their human rights issues and the people’s behaviour can be a huge turn off, but hopefully from being a super power they will take on more responsibilities and improve in these areas.

    Making friends with China is certainly the way to go for the future at this moment. It is time for China and Asians to rise now.

  15. shelly tai on Nov 3, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news with us. It is definitely is a good move to have close relationship with China because it will eventually benefits both countries , for a country like Malaysia to grow we need mega project then it will create more jobs opportunities for the people and the general businesses to grow, China being a big player in the market now it is for sure it will help for the grow of south east Asia country like Malaysia , Thailand, etc.

  16. Lew on Nov 3, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    China is building a huge project “the Belt and Road” which connects many countries and cities by roads/rails. From an economy point of view, China saw the opportunity, and went 100% on it. This is a huge project and I really salute the determination to make it work.

    Therefore, many of the projects like the rail projects in Malaysia, they are willing to lend the money to Malaysia and let Malaysia build the rails, with conditions that China has the rights to use them. As it is, there are already many China companies operate in Malaysia, and there is even a Xiamen University in Malaysia to cater for the second generation of China expats who works in Malaysia.

    I personally hope China’s “the Belt and Road” project a success as it really bring a balance to the power from west, and of course it can really bring economical benefits to Malaysia.

  17. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 3, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    It is good that Malaysia has forged a stronger bond with China and is set to receive China’s aid in economic development. China is a world superpower -indeed it is now the world’s largest economy – who is making heavy inroads into developing countries everywhere to give economic aid and to engage in mega projects to uplift these countries’ economies.

    The Chinese and Malaysian leaders have met and forged stronger ties with each other. This augurs well for Malaysia. The first fruits of that meeting are seen in the recent announcement that China is going to engage in a mega project to build and finance (in a relatively easy loan payment scheme)the RM55 billion (US$13.1 billion) East Coast Rail Line (ECRL) project that will span four states in peninsular Malaysia. When this proposed project is completed, it will open up the relatively undeveloped East Coast states ( with its sprinkling of small towns)to economic development and progress. The proposed railway system will directly link up the big towns on the East Coast to Port KLang and pave the way for the export industry to open up in the East Coast States.

    A good and comprehensive transport network , such as the proposed railway system, is vital to our country’s overall development.

  18. Sarah on Nov 2, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    In today’s newspapers, there is a lot of information regarding the super-mega deals between China and Malaysia worth RM143.64 billion. One of the deals is the railway project, mentioned in this article, which will make the east coast more competitive and benefit the industries and businesses along the route. Other projects include the purchase of 4 combat ships by the Malaysian Navy (2 will be built in China and 2 in Malaysia), the construction of Melaka Gateway, a mega development project in Malacca which involves building a deep sea port. China is clearly the new global leader as it continues to help developing countries in Africa, Southeast Asia and other parts of the world.

  19. May Ong on Nov 2, 2016 at 4:01 pm

    This is extremely good news for all Malaysians. Railways have always been the life line of many nations in the world as a form of cheaper transportation, people and carry goods to the right destinations hence improved trade even within the country or to deliver out of the country to ports along coastal areas. Many livelihood will be changed and improved when this ECRL is built.

  20. Uncle Eddie on Nov 2, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    As Rinpoche said,”Malysia people are gentle, kind and harmonious. He admired their sincerity and generosity. They have not only help him but his Monastery in India too. “Malaysian racial and inter-religious harmony are said to be a Hallmark of Malaysian society too”, said our Rinpoche! Yes, it seems this has been almost an every first-time visitor’s greateat admiration in their visit. China today has become the World’s largest economy, proofing it has gone from strength to strength, and any country today maintaining good ties and relationship with China proves a good wayforward for more larger projects to come in the future; and that,is exactly what wisdomised Tun Najib, Malaysia’s premier is doing for lucky Malaysia. It will certainly benefit Malaysia in its future growth, Viva-la, the Prime Minister of Malaysia!

  21. Justin Cheah on Nov 2, 2016 at 1:39 am

    China have come a long way from being a nation distraught by opiums and the culture revolution to become a global economic powerhouse overtaking U.S. i am very pleased to see this happening actually not because of my roots but it shows despite all the tough times China had to endure over the past decade, colonised by 7 countries at least and survived World War 2, to now a leading business partner for everyone in the world. Martin is right, there are issues surrounding Tibetan Buddhism etc but look at Tibet now. It is flourishing and brought so much development into Tibet like never before and seeing Tibets living in prosperity in a country oozing with potential. I can’t help to admire what had China contributed and wonder if the same can be achieved had China did not reclaim Tibet.

  22. Martin C on Nov 2, 2016 at 1:26 am

    This is very good news for Malaysians and something for all to rejoice in. But in recent years and especially for practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, it has become forbidden to celebrate China’s success lest one becomes accused by fans of the Dalai Lama to be a traitor and enemy of the Tibetan people.

    The prevailing pressure on Tibetan Buddhists is to ‘dislike’China for its alleged less than sterling human rights record. Frankly, I cannot comment very much on this because I have often wondered how much of what we read are in fact over-cranked propaganda.

    I do know that if we are to judge a country by its human rights history then we should have already condemned quite a list of the countries that constitute the ‘West’who were once behind very ruthless colonization programs.

    It was the West, not China that brutally took over countless nations, destroyed their culture, tradition and religion and took sons and daughters of the vanquished countries as slaves. It was the West that introduced opium into China as a weapon to weaken the people so that they are rendered incapable of defending their home from the annexation of the white man.

    Therefore I wouldn’t dare judge. Instead I am happy that Malaysia is developing a good relationship with China and many generations of Malaysians will benefit as the result.

    It is also said that Icchantikas are those who were once Buddhists but later abandoned the Buddha’s teachings and did the opposite of what the Buddha had taught. We must be careful of our thoughts and actions and do only what the Buddha had said. If our thoughts or actions are not correct, we are creating the cause to not practice Buddhism and we can end up as an Icchantika.

    But there are still hopes for the Icchantikas. As Buddha had said before, nothing stays the same forever and every being has the potential of becoming a Buddha, that includes Icchantikas. It is just it will take a long time for the Icchantikas to exhaust the negative karma they have created and then be able to learn Dharma again. It is better not to become an Icchantikas, life in hell is pure sufferings. If we feel we are suffering now as a human being, the suffering Icchantikas will have to go through is even worse.

    Jeong Kwan is such an inspiring nun. She can turn almost anything into dharma practice even making soy sauce. She must had some realizations to be able to see the dharma in everything. I love it when she was asked whether she misses the monastery, she replied that she is happy now.

    That sentence speaks a lot about her inner world. She is happy to be present. Many people would have said I miss this and that and all of those will be in the past. Jeong Kwan lives in the present and she truly experiences the present. That is why Buddha taught us to be in the present at all times.

    She left home after her mother passed away and she vows to never ever to give such pain of someone losing their mother to her kids. What a compassionate human being that rather takes on life of a nun in order to not hurt others.

    It is not uncommon to hear a Buddha statue performing miracles. Sometimes, Buddha will show signs to strengthen people’s faith. In Nepal, there are some holy sites where Buddha images self-arise on a rock, one of the famous self-arisen Buddha is Tara image in Pharphing. The eyes of the White Tara in this article were closed when she was first discovered. Later, she showed miracles by opening her eyes! It was said she also showed a secret mantra during the consecration ceremony.

    Did you know some Tibetan monks have the power to do divination and give advice to help people remove their obstacles? Through divination, Buddhas and enlightened beings are able to communicate with us to give us assistance. In the Gelug lineage, two of the most popular and effective divination methods are that of Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. Read more about the divination method here:

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote a prayer to Dorje Shugden way before he banned the practice. The reason that was given is that he did not realize the true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is not logical at all.

    His Holiness is the emanation of Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig and everyone know it. How can a Buddha be fooled by a spirit and the Buddha actually wrote a prayer to the spirit? Those who actually believed this reason is belittling His Holiness’s attainments.

    There is no way for His Holiness to be fooled by Dorje Shugden and that is why this move by His Holiness is not logical at all. If a spirit can fool a Buddha, why are we taking refuge in the Buddha? His Holiness must have his own reason for this and we should have faith in His Holiness especially during this time.

    The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche of Bhutan and Dorje Shugden

    The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works (gsung ‘bum). Imagine, the practice of Dorje Shugden is practiced in many countries and his practice so beneficial that even the 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche wrote prayers to him, as recorded and archived in the National Library of Bhutan.

    Do you know what is the role of a guru? A guru has the responsibility to guide the students to enlightenment. To be enlightened, we have to develop good qualities and get rid of the bad qualities we have. It requires a great amount of merits to meet a qualified guru. When we have met our guru we should cherish it because anything our guru says to us or instructs us to do is to help us to get positive results in our spiritual practice so we will eventually achieve enlightenment.

    Wow, look at how talented this Chinese fashion designer, Guo Pei is. She is full of imagination and creativity. She is a good example of how we can put our imagination into reality. Sometimes what we want to do sounds impossible to others, but if we don’t believe in ourselves and try to do it, we will never know. Never give up what we think it’s right to do if it is not something that will create harm to others.

    The 14th Dalai Lama who is against the Dorje Shugden practice wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden before, this is very nice to know. The Dalai Lama propitiated Dorje Shugden in his early days. It was until 20 years ago, he announced that he has made a mistake to pray to Dorje Shugden and that Dorje Shugden is actually an evil spirit. The question is, how can a highly attained being make a mistake when he has the power to see the true nature of all sentient beings?

    In fact, when a highly attained being makes a mistake, it is done deliberately for a higher purpose. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche said before when the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden seem to be against each other, we should not lose faith in either of them. Because Dorje Shugden followers are ‘outcast’ by the Dalai Lama, the Chinese government feels very safe to allow Dorje Shugden Lamas to spread Buddhist teachings. This is how the Dalai Lama helps to revive Buddhism in China even when he is not in China. If the Dalai Lama can manifest a mistake for propitiating Dorje Shugden, he can also later say he makes a mistake for saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Bryn Athyn Monster Spirit

    In the Buddhist scriptures, specifically in the Dukkar texts, it mentions 80 different types of spirits that abide in different realms. Within these different types, there are subdivisions so there are many different types of spirits. Spirits can manifest in many dimensions, travel very fast (at the speed of light), and have some levels of clairvoyance. Some spirits are harmful and some spirits are neutral; some spirits may even be helpful.

    The Mysterious Ghosts of the Himalayas

    The Himalayas is one of the most well-known mountain ranges in the world. Located on the Indian subcontinent, the Himalayas are home to nine of the ten highest mountains on earth, including the mega mountains Everest and K2, among others. And while this range may be well known for mysteries such as the Yeti, it is not a place typically associated with ghosts, yet here in the cold wilds there are accounts of specters and entities just as spooky as anywhere else.

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

Everyday offerings of fresh cooked food and drinks are offered to awakened world peace protector Dorje Shugden on my shrine. It is my way to thank Him for all the help He has given to so many people throughout the decades I\'ve introduced Him to. It is my way to include Him as my family and a feeling of closeness and gratitude I have for Him. He\'s a revered family member who happens to be enlightened and also my close friend.

On January 26, 2019, Venerable Arjia Rinpoche who is a close friend of the Dalai Lama asked the Tibetans to stop discriminating against people who practice Dorje Shugden and regionalism. His speech called for unity for the preservation of Tibet\'s unique culture and religion and all Tibetans should be friendly with each other regardless of religion and regional origins. His speech is powerful and much needed at this time. Very beautiful. Thank you Arjia Rinpoche. Please see here: https://bit.ly/2CdOz1A

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

  • 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
