Ra Lotsāwa Dorje Drak (rwa lo tsA ba rdo rje grags) was born in 1016, in Nyenam, in a place called Nangyul (snye nam / gnya’ nang snang yul), on one of the most important Nepali-Tibetan trade routes. His father was Raton Konchok Dorje (rwa ston dkon mchog rdo rje) and his mother was Dorje Peldzom (rdo rje dpal ‘dzom). His father was a lineage holder of the Nyingma tradition Yangdak Heruka and Vajrakīla, and he passed these on to his son. According to tradition, soon after birth the goddess Remati took him into her robe and traveled across Tibet for two months.

At the age of fourteen Ralo made his first trip to Kathmandu, arriving in Patan during a period of some political social instability, but great cultural fluorescence. Despite the considerable details of his sojourn there given in the (probably) thirteenth-century hagiography, recent scholarship has shown that little of the information given can be trusted, from the name of the monastery in which he resided to the circumstances of his ordination, where he was given the name Dorje Drak.

Ra Lotsāwa attended the Fire Dragon Religious Conference (me ‘brug chos ‘khor) that convened in 1076 under the sponsorship of King Tsede (mnga ‘ bdad rtse lde, d.u.), the nephew of the famous King Jangchub O (byang chub ‘od, d.u.) of the Guge (gu ge) kingdom in western Tibet. This meeting of many of the the most important teachers or the era, both Tibetan and Indian, was dedicated to encouraging new and more accurate translation work. Following the meeting he went to Kashmir, accompanied by five other young Tibetans, including Ngok Lotsāwa Loden Sherab (rngog blo tsA ba blo ldan shes rab, 1059-1109). Another young man who went with him to India was Nyen Lotsāwa Darma Drak (gnyan lo tsA ba dar ma grags).

Ra Lotsawa is always depicted in a wrathful stare and body position. He had much opposition to the practices he brought to Tibet. As a result many tried to use supernatural devices to destroy him, which he had to defend himself against. His wrathful demeanour shows his tantric abilities to use wrathful enlightened energies to overcome hexes and obstacles hurled at him. Click to enlarge.

Ralo is said to have trained under a master named Bharo, a title given to newly influential members of the merchant class. The Blue Annals gives the teachers name as Bharo Chakdum (bha ro phyag rdum). Bharo was a specialist in the Vajravārahī and Vajrabhairava ritual systems, the transmission of which Ralo received during this first visit. According to the hagiography, during this first trip he already displayed his penchant for magical combat, engaging with a Shaivite teacher whose doctrine he insulted, driving the Shaivite to suicide. In addition he trained with a Mahakaruna, a master in Naropa’s lineage of disciples. From him he received a number of tantric initiations, including the Cakrasaṃvara and the Namasamgiti.

Returning to Tibet, Ralo quickly became enmeshed in clan feuds over property and marriage arrangements, and he used his new magical abilities to do battle with his enemies. Many of his enemies were translators and lamas propagating in competing tantric systems, and Ralo infamously engaged them in combat. Khon Shakya Lodro (‘khon shakya blo gros, d.u.), a member of the Khon family that would later initiate the Sakya tradition and a holder of the same Yangdak Heruka and Vajrakila lineages, saw in Ralo a serious rival to his influence and survival as a sought-after teacher. He accused Ralo of propagating a non-Buddhist teaching, one that would lead all Tibetans to Hell. According to the hagiography Ralo slew Shakya Lodro with the killing rite of Vajrabhairava, and witnesses saw Vajrabharava in the sky carrying the 58-deity maṇḍala of Yandak Heruka as a sign of the Vajrabhairava’s superiority. Shakya Lodro’s disciples and feudal subjects then became disciples of Ralo.

Later a similar contest arose between him and Langlab Jangchub Dorje (lang lab byang chub rdo rje, d.u.), another important Vajrakila master. Ralo had gone to pay his respects to the venerable teacher, but Langlab, like Shakya Lodro, dismissed Ralo as a purveyor of non-Buddhist magic. In the ensuing contest, however, Ralo was defeated, his disciples slain by Langlab’s superior magic. According to the hagiography Ralo then experienced a vision of Tara, who sent him to Nepal for further instructions from Bharo and other Nepali masters. Upon his return to Tibet he once again engaged Langlap, this time emerging victorious and slaying the Nyingma lama.

It was during the second trip south than Ralo is said to have gone to India and ordained at Nalanda.

Ralo claimed to have murdered thirteen lamas. Among them were translator Gyu Monlam Drakpa (rgyus smon lam grags pa, d.u.), the translator of the Cakrasaṃvara Samvarodaya Tantra, Go Lotsāwa Khukpa Letse (‘gos lo tsA ba khug pa lhas brtses, d.u.), the translator of the Guhyasamāja, and Marpa Chokyi Lodro’s (mar pa chos kyi blo ‘gros) son Darma Dode (dar ma mdo sde).

Go Lotsāwa had questioned the legitimacy of Ralo’s teachers, and is said to have engaged in black magic against Ralo, rites drawn from the Guhyasamāja. The conflict drew in hundreds of villages, and some when residents marched against Ralo and accused him of harming them, he conquered them with his magic, leaving them vomiting blood, and Go Lotsāwa lost his life.

In addition to challenging rivals to competing tantric systems, Ralo spent his wealth renovating temples in southern Tsang and Lhato, including Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first monastery, which had been damaged by fire in 986. He also sponsored translations, the copying and recitations of scripture, and the installation of statues.

After Thoughts

By Tsem Rinpoche

When Ra Lotsawa taught the Yamantaka series of tantra to people of his time, the famous and established leading lamas of the time, especially leading teachers from Sakya and Nyingma schools of Buddhism, heavily rejected this practice. They discouraged others from attending the initiations and teachings of Yamanataka by Ra Lotsawa. Khon Shakya Lodro, a member of the Khon family and a famous lama was vehemently against Ra Lotsawa and Yamantaka. These famous and powerful established teachers especially Khon Shakya Lodro and Nyingma lama Langlab Jangchub Dorje claimed among many reasons that Yamantaka had no authentic lineage stemming from India or an Indian teacher, therefore it was a false practice, and that Ra Lotsawa practised black magic, that Yamantaka was a demonic practice leading Tibetans to the hells, that Ra Lotsawa was a false teacher leading many astray with this Yamantaka deity.

They claimed that there was no such yidam (meditational deity) with a buffalo’s head and those were non-Buddhist teachings that would lead people to negative states of rebirth. They even teased Ra Lotsawa, asking him if Yamantaka resembles other buffaloes bathing in the muddy waters as buffaloes do, and wiggling its rear end. Being an extremely famous Sakya teacher, Khon Shakya Lodro was very wealthy and established, had great impact on other teachers and spiritual aspirants, and he was very damaging to Ra Lotsawa’s reputation.

Nevertheless, Ra Lotsawa never conceded and persistently proved Yamantaka’s tantra is Buddhist, powerful, worthwhile, authentic and had the generation and completion stages of advanced tantra practices to bring people to the pinnacle of liberation. The famous Sakya teacher Khon Shakya Lodro even challenged Ra Lotsawa to a magic contest to see whose tantric path was superior. It was said Khon Shakya Lodro lost, thus establishing the superiority of the Yamantaka lineage. Ra Lotsawa never backed down from the heavy criticisms leveled at him from famous teachers. In the end Ra Lotsawa proved Yamantaka’s authenticity and that Yamantaka is the very emanation of Manjushri. As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding where over time when people investigated, studied and practised Yamantaka’s tantra, they can see the powerful results.

Today, Yamantaka’s practice is widespread and without doubt of its authenticity and power. It is one of the main practices of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism recommended by Lord Tsongkapa himself, and it is also practised in Sakya and Kagyu schools. This is very reminiscent of what is happening to the Dorje Shugden practice today, and as time passes many people can see that He is no other than Manjushri and the practice confers great benefits.

    Reincarnation Lineage Prayer of the Incarnate Master Dragpa Gyaltsan

    This prayer also, to the incarnate master Dragpa Gyaltsan through his reincarnations, has been spoken for the benefit of all migratory beings by the Vajra Shugden who protects the holy Dharma, at the sacred abode Choling in response to requests from many devout monks and nuns and householders. Gedun Choejor was the scribe. May this serve as cause for all migratory beings swiftly attaining in one lifespan the state of Vajradhara.

    May there be auspiciousness!

    Lord Manjushri, the sole father of all kindhearted Victors,
    Lord Tsongkhapa, whose renown fills this world,
    Lord Yamantaka who has arisen to subdue the intractable:
    Bless us supplicants with common and uncommon attainments!

    Lord Sambhota, the best of scholars,
    Loden Sherab, the savant in all classics,
    Lords Naropa and Khyungpo Naljor:
    Bless us supplicants with common and uncommon attainments!

    Ralo Dorjedrag and master Khutoen,
    Masters Sakya Shri and Choeku Woezer,
    And to the Omniscient Lord Buton:
    Bless us supplicants with common and uncommon attainments!

    The all-pervading Tsarchen, and Sonam Dragpa;
    Sonam Yeshe, prominent among saviors of beings;
    Sonam Geleg, in whom merit and virtues shone like the sun:
    Bless us supplicants with common and uncommon attainments!

    Dragpa Gyaltsan, the master leading nyig-dhue1 beings to liberation,
    Whose very name, just hearing, frees from the lower migrations,
    Who leads to liberation any who supplicates single-mindedly:
    To this protector of teachings and beings of three worlds we pray.

    Ngawang Jinpa the emanation in saffron robes, and
    Ngawang Tenzin, upholder of the victory banner of the teaching,
    And Jetsun Losang Geleg, the great master:
    Bless us supplicants with common and uncommon attainments!

    Losang Tenzin, the victory banner of Dharma who comes
    As kings, ministers and monks for beings and dharma’s sake,
    In successions endless as ripple in water:
    To such past and future emanations we pray.

    By the truth power of the Three Jewels,
    By the enlightened actions of oceanic dharmapalas
    Such as the Four-faced Lord and the Dorje Shugden,
    May all beings live well and in happiness.

    As you embody all Three Roots2,
    For us all migratory beings here, in the future, and in bardho3,
    In all happy and bad times we have none but you:
    Hold us, without separation, with parental love.

    When in future you enact the enlightened deeds,
    As attaining Enlightenment as Buddha Rabsal among others,
    May we and all other beings connected with us,
    Be the first to taste the nectar of your vast and profound words.

    May we, and all sentient beings, in all lifetimes,
    Come into contact with the Second Buddha’s teachings,
    May we all take on the going forth, and take
    All sentient beings across the ocean of samsara.

    The treasury of all knowledge and attainments in dharma;
    The great hero who strove for the supreme liberation:
    We pray at the feet of Choekyi Jhangchub.

    The one whose greatness, on account of pure prayer,
    Was like that of a second Buddha;
    And was supreme Guide to fortunate ones of India and Tibet:
    We pray at the feet of that great being.

    In the sky of the great bliss of Dharmakaya,
    The radiant orb of the three bodies of the Buddha is full circle,
    Radiating a million rays of enlightened activities: We pray at the feet
    Of that opener of a million lotuses of benefit and wellbeing.

    We pray at the feet of Master Buton, the unrivalled
    Amongst all those who are scholars and realized ones,
    In upholding and spreading the Buddha’s teaching,
    By example in teaching and practice.

    With an intellect superbly trained from the past,
    Your mind joyously bloomed in all profound paths.
    With single-minded effort you attained supreme realization.
    We pray at the feet of that supreme and realized master.

    From the vast lotus gardens of phuntsog* merit,
    Myriad lotuses, with hundreds of petals, of learning and practice, bloom.
    The fragrant scents of good name and deed dispel the ancient sicknesses
    Of migrant beings: At the feet of that master we pray.

    By the wish-granting jewel of merit and wisdom,
    You became a crown jewel of both man and gods,
    Its hundred rays of good deed dispelling the dark ignorance
    Of all migrant beings: At your feet we pray.

    The vast celestial mansion of virtuous accumulation of merits,
    Overflows with jewels of the good path of the three trainings.
    We pray at the feet, of its dweller─a guide of all beings─
    Attired in the magnificence of enlightened deeds.

    In holding aloft the victory banner
    Of the sutra and tantra teachings of the Second Buddha:
    In this you are unrivalled in all three worlds.
    We pray at the feet of this noble tutor.

    The source of renown and wellbeing and happiness,
    Is the Buddha’s teachings. May the chief of all who uphold this banner
    Live for long for the sake of innumerable beings to be tamed!
    May his phuntsog* enlightened deeds spread to the ten directions!

    By the merit of praising in this manner, may we never be
    Separated from the protection of noble spiritual mentors!
    Progressing swiftly in the supreme vehicle’s path,
    May we swiftly attain the state of the three kayas!

    The practice of Yamantaka is not widely accepted when Ra Lotsawa first propagating it. Due to the appearance of Yamantaka who has a buffalo head, many rejected the idea of him being a fully enlightened Buddha and an emanation of Buddha Manjushri. Many lamas from different traditions challenged Ra Lotsawa in a magic battle to prove the superiority of their practice.

    Ra Lotsawa was forced into magic battle with them and slain a total of 13 lamas in his time to remove obstacles to propagate his teachings on Yamantaka. Finally, he had proven the authenticity of the practice and now it is one of the most powerful and main tantras that is being practiced in Gelug.

    Dorje Shugden is suffering the same fate as being rejected. With our determination and faith in his, we shall press on and soon they will realize the authenticity of his practice and
    he will be accepted by everyone.

    When Ra Lotsawa first introduced the Yamantaka tantra during his time in the 11th century, he was strongly opposed by High Lamas of his time of both the Sakya and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. As Ra Lotsawa persisted in his belief, he was challenged and he had to defend his faith in all ways he knew. To those points of defence, Ra Lotsawa was accused of being non buddhist and practising Black magic which was harmful.

    Lo and Behold, today Ra Lotsawa is highly revered for his propagation of Yamantaka practice and this practice is widely practised by many schools of Tibetan traditions and was also encourage by the great Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Reflect now what is happening to the propitiation of Dorje Shugden, as DS practitioners are being accused and condemned in many a similar ways.

    Let us not be faint in our belief and faith in the protector of our time, Dorje Shugden. Be steadfast like Ra Lotsawa and many people will be benefitted by Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on Ra Lotsawa.
    Ra Lotsawa is more famously remembered for propagating the Yamantaka series of tantra to the people of his time. However, in the beginning, the well-established Lamas of his time, from the Sakya and Nyingma schools of Buddhism, had heavily rejected this practice. Leading Masters from the Sakya Lineage, like Khon Shakya Lodro, were vehemently against Ra Lotsawa and Yamantaka, claiming that there were many reasons for discouraging the practice. Yamantaka had no authentic lineage stemming from India or an Indian teacher, they said.Therefore it was a false practice, and that Ra Lotsawa practised black magic. They further said that Yamantaka was a demonic practice leading Tibetans to the hells.Therefore it was a false practice, and that Ra Lotsawa was a false teacher leading many astray with this Yamantaka deity.Using their influence and power, they tried to destroy Ra Lotsawa’s reputation.

    However,Ra Lotsawa never conceded and persistently proved that Yamantaka’s tantra is Buddhist, powerful, authentic and had the generation and completion stages of advanced tantra practices to bring people to the pinnacle of liberation. He defeated the famous Sakya teacher Khon Shakya Lodro who had challenged Ra Lotsawa to a contest using magic to see whose tantric path was superior.Ra Lotsawa defeated him, thus showing the superiority of Yamantaka. Ra lotsawa never backed down despite the heavy criticisms levelled at him. He proved that Yamanyaka was authentic and that he is an emanation of Manjushri.

    Today, the Yamantaka practice is widely practiced in the Gelug tradition , as well as in the Sakya and Kagyu traditions. It is also well sought after. May the Dorje Shugden practice, facing a similar barrage of criticisms and condemnation as the Yamantaka practice used to face , be one day as prevalent as the Yamantaka practice. There is no reason for this not to happen as Dorje Shugden is also an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom.

  5. Wai Meng Wan on Aug 13, 2018 at 12:31 am

    Yamantaka practice is one of the key tantric practices of the Gelug system. Without Ra Lotsawa having to do what he had to do, engaging in combat with lamas of other tantric systems, perhaps the Yamantaka practices would have disappeared or could not gain a foothold in Tibet. I think most important we should not judge practices based on face value, but after thorough investigation.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    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

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

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.

Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu all came to make offerings to a Universal Monarch (Buddha) during this most auspicious time. This is one of the depictions of that. 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
