Natural flavored water

Jan 7, 2013 | Views: 39,343

Dear students and friends,

This morning, I came across this wonderful website that teaches you how to make flavored water using fruits and herbs. I thought that I’d give it a try… The Ladrang made these drinks for me, and I particularly like the watermelon and pineapple flavored water. I thought that I’d share this recipe with everyone here as it is a much healthier option than drinking soda water or soft drinks.

Do give the recipes a try – it is extremely quick and easy! You can even make it in bulk to last you for 3 days, so it saves a lot of time. I wish all my students and friends to have great health always. Share with everyone in the comment section below if you’ve tried any other different combinations of fruits and herbs!

Pictures of flavor water made by the Ladrang

William and Bryan made these for me this morning. I had some of it when I woke up this morning… very nice.

 

The fruit drinks are kept chilled so that it stays fresh.

How To Make Naturally Flavored Water

Supplies needed:

  • Fruit – Whatever kind you like (except bananas); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor. Use all kinds of citrus and berries. Pineapple and watermelon work well for flavoring water. 
  • Herbs – These are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors; almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference
  • Jars or pitchers – Use 2 quart mason jars primarily, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. Fruit infusion pitcher is another option if you think you’ll be making infused waters regulary; a very easy, tidy way to strain fruit from water.
  • Muddler or wooden spoon for mashing fruit and herbs
  • Ice
  • Water – Use filtered water, but regular tap water is fine if it is hygienic.

 

Fresh or Frozen fruits

When in season, it is preferably to use fresh fruit. However, when fruit is out of season, the fresh version can be tart or flavorless. Because fruit that is to be frozen is picked at the peak of ripeness, it is often the better option for the best flavor, sweetness, and nutrients. This is especially in the case with berries and peaches.

 

A variety of fresh herbs. 

Use whatever herbs you like or happen to have on hand. It’s surprising how well they blend with most fruit flavors, and they amp up the refreshing factor of the water. Mint is the most obvious herb choice. Basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lavender, and tarragon; all good.

You can combine most fruits and herbs according to your favorite flavors and what you have on hand in your fridge. Here you will learn how to make 5 flavor combos. You can take it from there, creating endless flavor combos of your own.

 

Quantities

The quantities in the flavored water recipes are all for 2 quart jars or pitchers. You can adjust the quantity according to the jar size. 

 

Recipe

Fruit Flavored Water

1) All Citrus Flavored Water – adds refreshing tartness to water

What you need: 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon, 1 two quart jar, wooden spoon, ice, filtered water

Slice 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon into rounds, then cut the rounds in half. Add to jar, press and twist with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon. Press enough to release some of the juices, but don’t pulverize the fruit into pieces. Fill the jar with ice. Pour in water to the top. Stir it with the handle of a wooden spoon or a chopstick. Put a lid on it, put it in the fridge, and chill. 

You can drink it right away, but the flavor intensifies if it’s made an hour or two ahead. It’s even better the next day. 24 hours later straight from the fridge, the ice still hasn’t melted completely. The ice at the top serves as a sieve so that you can pour the flavored water without getting fruit bits in your glass.

 

2. Raspberry Lime Flavored Water – beautiful color and mildly tart

What you need: 2 limes, generous amount of raspberry, muddler, 1 two quart jar, ice, filtered water

Quarter 2 limes; with your hands, squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters. Add raspberries. Press and twist with a muddler to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

 

Flavored Water with Fruits and Herbs

3) Pineapple Mint Flavored Water – a hint of minty sweetness

What you need: Mint leaves, some pineapple, 1 two quart jar, muddler, ice, filtered water.

Add a sprig of mint to the jar–you can throw in the whole sprig; or, remove the leaves from the sprig, if you prefer to have the mint swimming around and distributing in the jar. Muddle the mint–the goal is to bruise the leaves and release their flavor–don’t pulverize them into bits. Add pineapple pieces, press and twist with the muddler to release juices. Add ice to the top and then water. Stir, cover, and refrigerate. 

 

4) Blackberry Sage Flavored Water – subtle, refreshing flavor

What you need: Sage leaves, blackberry, muddler, ice, filtered water, 1 two quart jar.

Add sage leaves to jar and bruise with a muddler. Add blackberries; press and twist with muddler to release their juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.

5) Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water – lovely flavor combo

What you need: Rosemary leaves, watermelon, 1 two quart jar, muddler, ice, filtered water

Add a sprig of rosemary to jar and muddle gently (rosemary releases a strong flavor without much muddling). Add watermelon cubes; twist and press gently to release juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.

 

All five flavored water:

How long will they keep? 

Put a lid on them, put them in fridge, and they will keep for up to 3 days. It only takes a few minutes to make several varieties to keep on hand. No more boring water!

 

Pour into a glass.

When there’s still ice left in the jar, it will filter out the fruit/herb bits as you pour the water into a glass. After the ice melts, if you don’t want to drink fruit bits along with the water, use a small wire strainer to remove them as you pour the water into your drinking glass. UPDATE: Another option is to use a sprout strainer lid made to fit wide mouth mason jars.

 

Sweeten it up, if you must. 

If you have a sweet tooth and find these flavored waters undrinkable without some sweetener, go ahead and stir in some simple sugar syrup, honey, agave syrup, or whatever sweetener you prefer. 1 teaspoon of sugar only has 15 calories, so go ahead and add one to your glass. Given that a single can of soda or juice has the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar, you are still way better off drinking slightly sweetened water. If you are hooked on sweet tasting drinks and want to reduce or eliminate sugar or artificial sweeteners, you may need to wean yourself gradually. Unsweetened beverages are an acquired taste. 

 

Great for entertaining! 

Flavored waters are very popular now, as more people are avoiding soda and juice. Make a variety of flavored waters to offer at your next party. Look how gorgeous they are! Refreshing, healthy, inexpensive, and beautiful. Plus you can make and refrigerate them well in advance of the party.

    Water is life, no one can live without it has water is basic for life. However, when it comes to drinking water, people should be careful on choosing whether the water they are drinking is pure and healthy for them or not.

    Blending fruit juice is always been practice, making healthy flavored water recipes by infusing the herbs and fruits in a jar of water is also a good. It is one of the fastest and most convenient ways of providing nutrition to our body. Thank you for sharing and will definitely will give it a try.

  2. Anne Ong on Dec 22, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing the recipe for Natural Flavored Water. I should be great to drink on a hot and humid weather like this in Malaysia. 🙂 Thank You Rinpoche and Ladrang crew for these great recipes and pictures!

  3. CindyH on Jul 12, 2016 at 1:08 am

    Flavoured water really is a healthier alternative and a great pick-me-up on a hot day. And as seen from the post and pictures, it is really not hard to do and pretty handy to whip up when entertaining.

    My other favourite combinations include; cucumber with lemongrass (picked up this one after a trip to the spa); blackberries with lemon and ginger; orange and thyme as well as cucumber and mint. (which are all slightly sweet and zingy).

    Thank you Rinpoche for constantly thinking about our overall welfare including even minute details like encouraging us to drink sufficient water as well as opting for healthier drinks. And for doing it in a manner which will grab our attention and appeal to our senses.

  4. Sofi on Jul 12, 2016 at 12:22 am

    With so much artificial food and drinks in the market nowadays, it is wonderful for Rinpoche to share with us the natural way to flavour water which many do not like to drink plain. We usually just a piece of lemon to our water but with this simple to do recipes to try, will definitely try out and maybe expand to try others. I think pomegranate seeds will be a nice addition. Thank you so much Rinpoche.

  5. Pastor Antoinette Kass on May 27, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    The different tastes of flavoured water with the many colours look very inviting and add another healthy drinking option.

    Indeed adding only one spoon of sugar is way less compared to the soda drinks we buy. Fresh fruits have many vitamins and the choice can vary to the seasonal fruits available. So it adds more choice and variety.

    This are easy recipes to prepare and prepare in advance for when you have guest or on a day to day basis.

    Healthy and not boring!

    Thank You Rinpoche and Ladrang crew for these great recipes and pictures!

  6. Tsem Rinpoche on May 27, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    I really don’t like to drink much water. But with these flavorings in it will make a big difference. I can drink much more water if served like this daily.

  7. Tsem Rinpoche on May 27, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    I would love have this daily for sure. Great offering to the Buddha too as it looks very inviting.

  8. Pastor Moh Mei on Apr 10, 2016 at 11:28 pm

    The kind of bottled drinks and juices we buy in the supermarket these days contain so much sugar and other preservatives. These drinks are so unhealthy. Most of us are so used to drink something with flavor sometimes plain water just doesn’t satisfy.

    These natural flavored water recipes are so easy to make and most importantly they are natural and full of healthy ingredients. A lot of people in the city these days due to time constraint usually eat out and this inevitably leads to a unhealthy diet. We think we are saving time by doing so but eventually when health problems manifest we ended up spending even more time and money on health issues which takes even longer time to heal.

    Taking the time and effort now to eat and drink healthy will ensure less time spent later on trying to deal with health problems.

  9. Chandra on Jan 21, 2015 at 4:31 am

    This seems to be the new trend among all the food bloggers! The final product with the side addition of herbs does look tempting. I might get myself to make this in the summer. Seems healthy too without the unnecessary preservatives.

  10. Liam on Jun 20, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    I was wondering how many millilitres are there in a quart jar? having never seen one and i was wondering so i could substitute the jar for something else.

  11. Giuseppe Marotta on May 29, 2014 at 1:47 am

    Hello! Does someone knows how to preserve them? If I wanted to bottle them, for example, ir there any way to preserve them? If anybody knows it would be great! Thanks!

  12. Kaitlyn on Apr 17, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Does it matter if I forgot to put ice cubes in??

  13. RAJESHREE PATEL on Apr 12, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    I WANT TO MAKE BUSINESS OF FLAVOURED WATER KINDLY SHOW ME THE WAY HOW IT CAN BE KEPT GOOD FOR ONE MONTH OR MORE

  14. Kelsey G on Mar 5, 2014 at 10:26 am

    My boyfriend and I love these flavored water drinks. They make us feel better and is a better alternative then drinking juice. He likes it with out sugar and I like mine with 1 tsp of sugar but either way it tastes better then other things.

  15. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 2:32 am

    This is just really cool, the drinks are just delicious. I really enjoy how it cools the body, yet giving you that sugar rush that you may need. The best part is that the taste from the drinks are all natural, there is no artificial flavouring. Hence, it helps one to maintain that healthy diet that they may be having.

  16. kleo on Sep 13, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    why no banana??

  17. Danie on Jul 25, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Definitely going to try this. I can’t really drink water because of how sensitive my taste buds are, and these look really good 😀

  18. Alta C.French on Jun 19, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you so much for this site & instruction for the flavored waters.I have tried a few mixtures on my own but wasn’t sure about combinations.You have made it easy for me to do.

  19. Lucas Roth on May 26, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    this is quite interesting because how the water changes color and it is natural. i am very tempted to try it because it looks very good and why not? if it is good i might even make more.

  20. Ong Moh Mei on Feb 23, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Very creative and kind of William and Bryan to prepare these healthy fruit flavored drinks for Rinpoche. They look so yummy. We can make them next time in KFR using our homegrown organic fruits and ingredients.

  21. Jean Mei on Jan 31, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    These are delicious!!

    There are lots of people who don’t like drinking water, and some are even repulsed by the thought of drink plain water. These recipes for naturally flavoured water will come in very handy!!

    I tried the watermelon and rosemary flavoured water, and although I found it really weird upon the first taste – it turned out to be very refreshing and rehydrating!

    It tastes a lot better than drinking soft drinks, and you don’t have the feeling that you just gulped down 8 spoonfuls of sugar after a glass of flavoured water.

    I’m a little adverse to water flavoured with mint, sage and rosemary – if anyone has any other recipes to share – do share! 🙂

  22. Andrew Boon on Jan 19, 2013 at 11:57 am

    What a wonderful way to get liquids into your body… especially those who dislike drinking plain water. A healthy, refreshing and essential alternative indeed.

  23. Jean Ai on Jan 15, 2013 at 1:24 am

    OHHHHHHH THAT’S what we were served the other day! A few nights ago, when we were having an audience with Rinpoche, the kitchen team served the audience attendees some really lovely flavoured water. I had no idea it was this! The minty one was really delicious, and a nice change from the usual soft drinks I chug down to keep my energy levels up (what a lie hahaha let’s be honest, I drink it for the sugar). Well, it’s no surprise we’re moving in this direction as Kechara Forest Retreat is being constructed…if we’re going to be promoting mental and physical health at KFR, we gotta start practising now!

  24. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    These are great recipes. Thank you rinpoche for such recipes. Fruit drinks can be so innovative and delightful.

  25. Sean Wang on Jan 10, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    All the flavored water shown in the pictures here looked so delicious and refreshing. The one I really want to make is Raspberry Lime and all citrus. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the recipe. This is extremely useful and informational 😀

  26. Pastor Chia on Jan 10, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    All this home make fruits drink are so refreshing and healthy. Is better than always drinking soft drink all the time and contain many sugar.not good for our health. Sample of ingredient to making all the food fruits drinks are easily get the market.

    Thank you rinpoche find this interesting recipe and sharing with us.

  27. Girlie Ooi on Jan 9, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    There is this refreshing drink I love that is served in a Thai food restaurant in PJ — blended mint, lemongrass and crushed ice cubes. Soothing to the throat and great way to end a hot day.

    All the recipes provided here look delicious and with only natural ingredient and fresh fruits/herbs, the sugar level will not be high as in carbonated drinks.

  28. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jan 9, 2013 at 3:26 pm

  31. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 8, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

  32. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 8, 2013 at 2:40 am

  34. Lim (KH JB) on Jan 7, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Wow so wonderful and tasty Naturally Flavored Water, feel very thirsty after see the photos in this article.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this recipe…

  35. Alan Chan ( KHJB ) on Jan 7, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Very nice sharing, the fruit drink look good and refreshing..good to try..thanks for the clear step with nice picture and description. it was easy to follow.

  37. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these health tips.

    All these drinks here look very tempting. I love things that come natural, and better still if the process of doing them does not take up too much time as I am not a good cook (yet!!), so these drinks do look very good for me!!!

    With things going too commercialised nowadays where profit is the main concern, we are getting a lot more chemicals in our stomachs than the older generations. Things that are unnatural usually do much harms to our bodies.

    These drinks definitely encourage people to drink more water. Nice!!

  38. Yee Mun on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    My own recipe of flavored water are

    1. lemon + honey
    2. lemon, passion fruits + honey/salt
    3. boil roselle bud with rock sugar
    4. lemon + sea salt (this drink ease bowel movement :-p )

    With Rinpoche’s sharing, I have more choices now. Thank you Rinpoche.

    • sarahyap on Feb 4, 2013 at 8:43 pm

      Yee Mun,

      Wow, cool! Thanks for sharing your recipes! Have you been drinking flavored water for a long time? Have you tried any of the above so far? =)

  39. tenzin llhamo on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Slurp slurp… The drinks look yummy! With the Internet, everything is super easy and convenient. Everyone can do it at home. If one were to order outside, it will be expensive and might not be as yummy.
    Just mix a few jars of any favors you like and put them into the fridge. Every morning when we wake can choose whichever we want to drink. Better than drinking plain water. A healthy drink to start the day! Thank you Rinpoche for yet another wonderful and healthy recipes…

  40. mitra on Jan 7, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Ladrang people for posting this great recipe.may rinpoche be well and healthy always.

  41. Jessica Yap on Jan 7, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    This is sucha simple recipe to follow! I really need to stop consuming canned drinks and make this flavored water instead. Not only is it east to make, it is healtier too. Rnipoche is always so kind and shares such informative posts in this blog. A new find everyday! hehe
    Thank you Rinpoche! May Rinpoche be well and healthy always!

  42. patsy on Jan 7, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    This flavored water is good to quench our thirst on a hot day. It looks is refreshing and yummy. As I don’t take canned drinks, this will be a good alternative as it is easy to prepare.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe. Will try it out:)

  43. Sharon Saw on Jan 7, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    These drinks sound amazing! I love fruit juices or fruit based juices and teas… and i don’t like any kind of sodas like coke, sprite etc (thank buddha, otherwise my sugar-level would go through the roof), so these drinks sound perfect for me. I especially like the sound of the blackcurrant and the watermelon drinks. A must try… and definitely this post is a must share!!

  44. Joy on Jan 7, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Very refreshing and healthy indeed… In fact because of the fruits and herbs, I’m sure it’s nutrients is in the water and it’s much more beneficial then to drink plain water I reckon. Definitely better then coco cola 🙂 Sometimes Rinpoche can add a little bit of honey or Agave if it still come across bitter.

    Anyway, since we’re on the drink healthy subject… here is an interesting site with 47 Smoothies for Summer thought I’d share with Rinpoche and all… I know Rinpoche’s not a huge fan of thick drinks, but some of them looks refreshing yet pack full of detox, antioxidants or nutritional contents for energy and healing, take a look… http://rebelwellness.com/blog/2012/06/47-smoothies-for-summer

  45. HelenaC on Jan 7, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    Yum Yumzzz, Look so delicious the flavored water hehehe, Its perfect for kids and for those whom does not like to drink water as water is tasteless, they will definitely love to drink water now with this recipe hehehe. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  46. Han on Jan 7, 2013 at 8:45 am

    All look refreshing .

    Thank you Rinpoche and Ladrang people for posting this great recipe. I like orange, watermelon and pineapple mint. will try on these combinations ….

  47. James Long on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:26 am

    看起来好好喝哦,我喜欢鲜桔子的味道,相信这些水,除了好喝,当然也包含了所有的维他命,看来有新的法宝来哄小孩子喝水了。呵呵

  48. AdelineTan on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:25 am

    All the flavored water shown in the pictures here looked so delicious and refreshing,i like blackberry sage the most and another choice is pineapple mint. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the recipe.

  49. sarahyap on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:22 am

    Wonderful recipes. It truly is indeed a very healthy option compared to soft drinks, and the best thing is, it tastes better than soft drinks! We must always ensure that our body is at it’s peak of health if we want to continuously benefit others.

    One thing good about this recipe is, even if we decide to add some honey or sugar to it, the sugar content is still less than what usually is available in soft drinks. To top it off, the flavored water is like drinking water itself! Which is essential for people to drink at least 8 glasses a day.

    Now with this recipe, parents or individuals that do not like drinking plain water will not have an ‘excuse’ to not take more fluid intake since this recipe makes drinking water more palatable.

    I’m looking forward to try other combinations of fruits to make other interesting flavored water and will share it here!

    This recycling project should be continued so that there will be no waste soup and at the same time it help many unfortunate groups to improve their cleanliness and hygiene.
    It is a very very smart thing to do, recycle the bar soaps and shampoos can save money, lessen the soap bars and shampoos that are supposed to be thrown away, it is very hygienic and we can put it into a good cost.

    Breath taking looking through those ancient beautiful Hindus temples. All are monolithic structures , with ancient architecture. Such as Kailasa Temple, Ellora, India built in 8th century and it took over a period of 20 years to construct. Some of these magnificent structure has been listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. All I can say is all these Hindus Temples not really beautiful but really impressive . I have not been to any of these temples but wish to see it. Anything ancient architecture or structures or holy place will always fascinated me and in my travel bucket. Can imagine how it was built those days without modern machinery. Interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Nepal-China relations have always remained friendly and cordial. The historic and multi-faceted bilateral relations between the two countries have evolved since centuries ago. The two countries have been marked by friendliness, understanding, mutual support, cooperation and respect for each other’s sensitivities. China has helped develop infrastructure and decrease import dependence. China has helped in the construction of highways and roads in Nepal. Nepal and China agreed to enhance cooperation in trade, investment, agriculture, cultural exchanges, tourism and so forth. Both countries benefited since then with the signing of the Sino-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed. Bringing opportunities for both especially Nepal will have a better economic growth. They are working together to preserve Buddhism in the holy sites of Bodhgaya in India and Lumbini in Nepal. This will being innumerable benefits for the continent and the world.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing.

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar, yogi and master of Sutra and Tantra as promise arose as a Dharma Protector. He is one of the more famous previous incarnations of Dorje Shugden to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa. Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s best known legacy is the construction of Gaden Monastery, a 600-year-old monastic institution which continues to exist to this day. Recording to H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s account the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is at Tsunmo Tsel Monastery . It’s a blessing I saw the beautiful stupa where the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen was. Interesting read of the life of a GREAT Lama and his legacy which i enjoyed reading.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Pemayangtse Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of Sikkim and the most famous monastery in West Sikkim. It’s a spiritual retreat for every tourist the whole year through as it offers a meditative environment quietly set amidst woods. Wow…This monastery is about 300 years old, which also offers the reflection of the rich architecture the ancient manuscripts and scriptures to tourist . I would love to see this legendary monastery with such an interesting history behind it. Recording to the British explorer and the Professor of Tibetan, description of Dorje Shugden found at Pemayangtse Monastery in Sikkim is rare and significant. Interesting read.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    A bird-friendly garden can be exactly many people would love to have. I am one of them I loved spotting and watching birds especially when the birds chirping sounds can be heard. Sitting under a tree , listening to birds chirping while reading a good book is priceless. The nature of the enduring happiness which the love of birds gives makes my day. Birds are some of the most wonderful manifestations of nature. Feeding them with foods is a wonderful sight to see too. Its Rinpoche ‘s kindness and compassion that had inspired all of us to be kind , caring to all animals nor matter what they are.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this post.

    A profound teachings about the mind and reincarnation. We are fortunate with Rinpoche ‘s teaching online and videos we could learn some knowledge from it. Many people have benefited from all these wonderful teachings especially how reincarnation works and how is the emptiness related to karma as well. With simplicity, comprehensive and logical explanations of our mind for all to understand. After watching those teachings from the videos , it opened my thoughts , to how reincarnation works. Still learning. Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Today there are more people turning to be a vegetarian. Vegetarians are usually more conscious about the earth and their overall health. People should consider becoming vegetarian because it has health benefits, reduces animal abuse, and helps reduce the risk of some diseases.

    Vegetarian diet has become mostly accepted in many cultures for its limitless benefits. It will be a healthy option if we choose to adopted to be a vegetarian with well balance diet. Of course going green definitely keeps immunity higher.

    Thank you for the knowledgeable sharing article, It is important for people around the world to understand the importance of being vegetarian.

    Nearly everyone has had weird, scary experiences, things that happen in life that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation. Unexplained at times. For me I am not scare as long as I do not disturb them. In fact feel sad for them, will dedicate my prayers to them now since prayers can help them. Ghost and spirit haunting always seem to be up to mischief at times. Watched those videos……interesting when the mysterious and unexplained happens such as the ‘moving pint’ incident at the pub. Interesting sharing of ghost footage taken in different pubs around the world.

    Andy Mattia a friend of our Lama…Tsem Rinpoche lost and found after 24 years . Rinpoche had not forgotten about him and recollected some of the finest moments of life with him. Its not too late , at least for a moment Rinpoche knew of his passing and had a picture of him after all these long years. A friend like Andy whom Rinpoche do not want to lose as he was kind and generous ,helping Rinpoche during the most difficult times at Los Angeles, California. Interesting read of how the writers managed to search and search without giving up and found it at last .Interesting video too.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Everyone in the world has the right to practice what one ‘s own religion, and beliefs. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. Its their choice and no one are above the law saying one should or should not pray to this and that. Our lama Rinpoche had been targeted all this years just because Rinpoche chose to continue practicing Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche had been abused online with all sorts of ugly words or so. Dorje Shugden ‘s practitioners been discriminated is really sad, just because one religious beliefs. NOT only that Rinpoche’s student too targeted using nasty words as well. Dorje Shugden is accused to be a evil spirit, they should checked and read the history and origin before commenting. Recently i did received nasty and disgusting comments too on my postings in FB. Who are they to comment , such a nonsense . Well they will soon have to swallow their own words.
    Those Dorje Shugden practitioners are not allowed to participate in many events , denied service and so forth. Reading all the untrue and nonsense comments , felt sickening and shocking. As Buddhist we should respect each other and make peace , harmony not ‘war’.
    Thank you for this sharing ,hopefully more are aware of what the ban on Dorje Shugden has caused. Enough is enough , may the ban soon be history.

    For more than a thousand years, artists have played a key role in the cultural life in Asia. At Tibet, Kashmir, and Nepal their arts flourished as its equally important part of their culture, architecture and their way of living to the outer world. The artist using art to express their knowledge, skills . The art painting reveal the way of lifestyle and strong belief they have in Buddhism. From the book ‘Arts from the Rooftop of Asia , Chinese has influence in the Tibetan paintings of thangkas and many art paintings in the region. Religious influence on Nepalese handicrafts. Interesting book revealing the history of arts with rare and precious pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Very touching watching the short video, how affection and love the cat . The dead owner must have treated well and gave a lot of love to this cat . Well the lovely cat hugs and leaning its face against the video screen. Animals cannot tell us their feelings and thoughts, but they can use touch and body language to communicate. Animals do express emotion, such as grief and joy, just like one of us. They can be very loyal and protective. Do not hurt them , give them care and love.
    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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

    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
