In 1964, a few years after fleeing Tibet for India, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his entourage were strenuously trying to re-establish Tibetan institutions and infrastructure as refugees. At that time, amongst the large number of highly trained and qualified candidates, His Eminence Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche were appointed as the philosophical advisors to the Dalai Lama.

Geshe Rabten was by that point already a well-known scholar and siddha (realised meditator), who was given the honourific nickname ‘Milarepa’ due to the great hardship he experienced. Milarepa was an 11th Century Tibetan yogi who having suffered from difficulty at the hands of his aunt and uncle, endured the physical struggles of meditating in caves and mountain retreats, went on to become a highly realised meditator and is now beloved for his extraordinary teachings which are found in his many spiritual poems. Geshe Rabten has also been compared with Dharmakirti, the great Indian master of Buddhist philosophy, famous for his clear, precise and logical debates. At a later time, the Dalai Lama entrusted Geshe Rabten to teach Buddhism to Westerners who showed up at the doorsteps of Dharamsala, the Tibetan refugee settlement in India where the Dalai Lama settled. This indicates the level of respect the Dalai Lama had for Geshe Rabten by entrusting to him such a position.

As a successful Dharma teacher, Geshe Rabten went on to be invited to Europe in order to spread the Buddha’s teachings there. He was later appointed by the Dalai Lama as the Abbot of Rikon Monastery in Switzerland, in order to fulfil the spiritual needs of the Tibetans who moved there after escaping Tibet, as well as Europeans. In essence, the Dalai Lama promoted Geshe Rabten as one of the pioneering Tibetan Buddhist masters in the West.

GesheRabtenRinpoche005

As a result of this, many of the famous Tibetan Buddhist masters in the West today are students of Geshe Rabten – Gonsar Rinpoche, Khamlung Rinpoche, Sherpa Rinpoche, Tomthog Rinpoche, Geshe Sopa Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Penpa, Geshe Tenzin Genpo, Geshe Thupten Ngawang, Geshe Thubten Trinley, just to name but a few.

In 1978, Geshe Rabten was invited to the United States to teach by Geshe Sopa (not to be confused with Lama Zopa), who himself was then teaching at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This was around the same time that Lama Yeshe had invited the erudite His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to make his first trip to the West, to the USA specifically, in order to teach at several Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) centres. Helmut Gassner, a close student of Geshe Rabten was given the opportunity to accompany Geshe Rabten, and he relates:

“At that conference there was another most impressive Lama from India, Zong Rinpoche, also giving teachings and initiations. It was from him I received, together with two other people, Dorje Shugden empowerment. I had never heard of Dorje Shugden before, even though I was studying Buddhism intensively and making good progress with my Tibetan.

After the empowerment, Geshe (Rabten) gave us some words of advice. He said, “This manifestation of the Buddha has no equal. If you are determined to tame your mind, then he will even give you his heart in order to help you.”

As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

In other words, amongst the many lamas, Geshes and holy monks who fled Tibet and relied on Dorje Shugden, Geshe Rabten was but just one who was highly trusted by the Tibetan Buddhist community, the Dalai Lama and many others. So, it is a wonder why the Dalai Lama banned this practice as so many great high lamas relied on and continue to rely on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Geshe Rabten and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche relied upon and trusted Dorje Shugden till the end of their lives. Both their incarnations are back defying the critics and proving Dorje Shugden’s practice is beneficial.

Do read the short biography below about Geshe Rabten and learn more about this great master. I have not had the honor to have met this master, but hearing from others of his deeds and reading his works and autobiography inspired me greatly. By learning about Geshe Rabten, you will be inspired and learn the correct life to live in order to be free from sufferings and samsara. Geshe Rabten is one of the greatest masters to have come out of Tibet and to identify with him in any way will only bless the reader. I pray that the holy wishes of this great master will be fulfilled and many beings will be guided to enlightenment by a master of this high caliber.

The Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche was one of the most outstanding Tibetan masters of our time, who was both a Pandit (scholar) and a Siddha (realized meditator) at the same time. His person was an embodiment of compassion and wisdom, an unsurpassable refuge and guide of this and future lives for countless beings.

He was born in Dargye, eastern Tibet, in 1921. Until the age of nineteen he fulfilled his family duties and then, out of his own will, chose the renounced life of a monk. Then he entered Tibet’s most reputed monastic university, Sera Tekchenling, and began his studies in the Je college. Under the guidance of his teachers such as the most Venerable Geshe Jampa Khedrup, he mastered through learning, contemplation and meditation the entire teachings of Dharma, collected in the three vehicles and the four classes of Tantra. He was renowned as a zealous student, unchallengeable debater, pious practitioner and unsurpassable teacher in and out of the monastery.

Through integrating all of his intellectual knowledge with the practice of meditation, he attained the deep insight into the nature of the phenomena and the ability to fulfill the purpose of oneself and others. Due to these qualities countless seekers of Dharma have become his disciples in Tibet, in exile in India and later in the west. From these disciples outstanding masters with great qualities have come forth. Among those who are known in the west are Lama Thubten Yeshe, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Thomtok Rinpoche, Geshe Pemba, Geshe Thubten Trinley, Geshe Tenzin Gonpo and Geshe Thubten Ngawang, just to name a few. There are many more in India and Tibet.

His outstanding qualities were recognized and cherished not only by his disciples, but also by the great masters of our time such as H.H. the Dalai Lama and his two eminent tutors. Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang, the junior tutor of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, in particular regarded him as one of his closest spiritual sons, and Geshe Rinpoche also regarded this particular master as his principal master or spiritual father who represented the embodiment of all Buddhas.

In 1964, H.H. the Dalai Lama selected Geshe Rinpoche and the Venerable Lati Rinpoche out of hundreds of Geshes to become his new Tsenshaps, that is his philosophical assistants. In 1969, in accordance with the wish of H.H. the Dalai Lama, Geshe Rinpoche started to give teachings to the Westerners in Dharamsala. In 1974, at the invitation of Mme Anne Ansermet as well as many other disciples, he came to Europe for the first time and gave teachings of Dharma in many countries, thus opening the great gate of the Dharma in this part of the world. In the following year he was again sent back to Europe by H.H. the Dalai Lama as the abbot of the Tibetan Monastic Institute in Rikon, Switzerland, in order to fulfill the spiritual needs of westerners as well as Tibetans living in Europe. Eventually, due to the growing number of people seriously interested in the thorough study and practice of Buddhism, he founded Tharpa Choeling, the Center for Higher Tibetan Studies in Mont-Pèlerin, Switzerland (which was later renamed into Rabten Choeling in memory of Geshe Rinpoche); Tashi Rabten in Feldkirch, Austria; the Tibetan Center Jangchub Choeling in Hamburg, Germany; the Phuntsok Rabten Association in Munich, Germany and Ghe Phel Ling in Milan, Italy. These monasteries and centers have become centers of attraction for those, who are seeking authentic and serious studies of Dharma. That, too, is the result of his uninterrupted, tireless turning of the wheel of Dharma up to the end of his life, with the sole intention to serve the teachings of Buddha and the sentient beings. Because of these reasons it is certainly appropriate to say that Geshe Rinpoche was the chief founder of the pure and complete Buddha- Dharma in Europe.
(From www.rabten.com)

Geshe Rabten Rinpoche in July 1985:

“From the time I was a small child, I met monks in their maroon robes returning from the great monastic universities near Lhasa. I admired them very much. I also occasionally visited the large monastery in our region; and when I watched the monks debating, I was again filled with admiration. When I was about fifteen years old I began to notice how simple, pure and efficient their lives were. I also saw how my own home life, in comparison, was so complicated and demanding of tasks that were never finished. In order to be counted as a qualified monk in the nearby Dhargye Monastery, one had to spend at least three to four years studying and training one’s mind in the Buddha Dharma in one of the three monastic universities near Lhasa.

With the thought of becoming such a monk in Dhargye Monastery, I decided at the age of seventeen to go to one of these monastic universities, although at that time I had no desire to become greatly learned in the Dharma.”
(Extract from Geshe Rabten’s Biography, “Life of a Tibetan Monk”, Edition Rabten, 2000)

When he was eighteen Geshe Rabten went on a three month journey from his birthplace in Kham in the Eastern province of Tibet to Lhasa in central Tibet where he became a monk in the monastic university of Sera. Very soon teachers and fellow students became aware of his magnificent character traits. While studying and meditating he went through unbelievable hardship. Hence teachers and fellow students gave him the name Milarepa. Due to his clear and precise way of logical debate, people compared him to Dharmakirti, the great Buddhist logical thinker. After having studied for about twenty years, he passed the Geshe exam in front of monks from the three great monasteries. He was given the title of the highest rank, Geshe Lharampa. This is the greatest honor, which is given by the examiners and by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

In 1964 Geshe Rabten was chosen to be the philosophical assistant of the H.H. Dalai Lama. In 1969 the Dalai Lama first of all sent Western students to Geshe and then later, due to the amount of Western students that had accumulated he asked Geshe to move to the Tibetan monastery in Rikon, Switzerland to become the Abbot of that monastery. At that time Geshe had many students in the big monastic universities in India and as his master Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was getting old and because Geshe did [not] profess to have any interest in the comfort and money of the West, he would have preferred to have stayed in India. Only when his master pointed out that his teachings would be a great blessing to the people of the West did Geshe agree to go.

Geshe was the first Buddhist master to introduce the complete Vinaya-tradition and the original study of Buddhism to the West. Hence Geshe became the path breaker of the complete and complex teachings of Buddhism in the West. Many masters, who are famous in the West today, were Geshe’s students, namely: Gonsar Rinpoche, Khamlung Rinpoche, Sherpa Rinpoche, Tomthog Rinpoche, Zopa Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Penpa, Geshe Tenzin Genpo, Geshe Thupten Ngwang, Geshe Thubten Trinley, etc.

Almost unlike any other, Geshe Rinpoche was able to bring the essence of the thoughts of Buddha close to the listeners. No matter if the listener was from the West or the East, whoever followed his words felt all the unclearness disappear and in its place a clearness and calmness started to spread in one’s mind. His examples encouraged people to adopt a sincere way of acting. Whatever he explained, gave the pupil a feeling of hearing a description of the past, the future or of hearing deepest secrets as if all these things were in Geshe’s hand.

Geshe founded the center for higher Tibetan studies, Rabten Choeling at the lake of Geneva (originally Tharpa Choeling), the Tibetan center in Hamburg, Tashi Rabten at the Letzehof, Puntsog Rabten in Munich and Gephel Ling in Milan.

When Geshe passed away in 1986, his pupils were able to experience the extraordinary signs of a complete master passing away. During the months after his death, many students had the feeling that during their meditation Geshe was unusually close to them. Three years later, Gonsar Rinpoche, Geshe’s dearest and closest pupil discovered Geshe’s incarnation, who, through various unconnected sources, amongst whom was the Dalai Lama, was confirmed to be the righteous incarnation.

GesheRabtenRinpoche003

In the spring of 1998 the ten year old Rabten Rinpoche gave his first teaching in front of a group of two hundred people in the monastery Rabten Choeling at the lake of Geneva. Unexpectedly and unprepared the young Rinpoche gave people advice on taking refuge. He spoke in the clear manner and way of impressing people, which had been Geshe Rabten’s own special way. The listeners were deeply moved and many of Geshe Rabten’s former students had tears in their eyes.

The memory of Geshe through his incarnation, who even in his young years already showed clear traits of a great master makes one believe that there is nothing more precious that could be given to one in this life even if one were to meet the enlightened Buddha in person.

Geshe Rabten Rinpoche’s Autobiography:
The Life Of A Tibetan Monk

GesheRabtenAutobio

The autobiography of Geshe Rabten, as told to some of his early students, contains not only the intensely vivid recollections of Geshe Rabten about his early life, but beautiful colour photos of him and many other great Tibetan masters. Along with the photos, line drawings by renowned artist Eva van Dam help to give the reader the impression of getting to know what Geshe was really like. Of all of the many Tibetan Buddhist masters who have come to the west, Geshe Rabten is one of two or three who have had a fundamental impact. His teaching style was unique, and was able to tailor his teaching to suit a wide variety of students. I highly recommend this book for easy reading yet leaves you with deep learning and a sense of the vast monastic educational system in Tibet where they took ordinary people and churned out great masters. A must read!

    This is a really an inspiring read that it is possible to achieve great attainments through study, meditation and practice if we were to place great value on the Dharma and do it diligently. It also proves that those who practiced Dorje Shugden can take rebirth and Geshe Rabten Rinpoche has taken an optimum rebirth to again turn the Wheel of Dharma. How amazing that his reincarnation is able to at 10 years of age give the discourse on refuge so clearly and without fault. May all great Dharma masters live long to continue turning the Wheel of Dharma in accordance to the true lineage teachings.

    Geshe Rabten was a Tibetan Geshe born in Tibet and known as a debater, scholar, and meditation master. Geshe Rabten was one of the pioneer Tibetan Buddhist masters in the West. He became the ‘path breaker’ of the complete and complex teachings of Buddhism in the West. Well respected by many thousands westerners and trusted by the Tibetan Buddhist community. He and many other lamas, Geshes and holy monks who fled Tibet had relied on Dorje Shugden. These has proven that Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector and does not harm anyone and not evil or spirits as claimed by some. Geshe Rabten passed away in 1986, and his incarnation is back, confirmed by Dalai Lama. This is a clear evidence that those who practiced Dorje Shugden does not go to the lower realm . In fact there are so many highly attained Lamas‘s incarnations coming back over and over again. The Tibetan leadership somehow keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice.Are they reborn in the lower realms ??
    Many masters, who are famous in the West today, were Geshe’s students. His unique and clear teaching style truly admired by many. Rabten Tulku Rinpoche, the young Geshe’s incarnation, gave inspiring teachings , which had been Geshe Rabten’s unique way.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a GREAT Lama.

    It is interesting to learn some background of Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. He and many high lamas are practicing Dorje Shugden, hence the allegation that Dorje Shugden is evil does not hold. How can high lamas practise evil spirit? And the point of Geshe Rabten Rinpoche has reincarnated again prove the allegation towards Dorje Shugden is wrong. If Dorje Shugden is evil as claimed by CTA, the the spiritual practitioner will not be reincarnated as a lama and show signs of good knowledge in Buddhism in young age.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and your recommendation to read Geshe Rabten Rinpoche’s autobiography.

  5. Jacinta on Jul 23, 2019 at 6:03 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I’ve heard about Geshe Rabten before but I never knew that He’s known as Milarepa; due to the hardships that He went through. I wonder why and would like to read more about Him. Will get His autobiography one day as currently I have few books to finish.

    There’s another point to note here; Most if not all the lamas have left positive comment about Dorje Shugden and these are not just any lamas but high Lamas with the highest caliber. How could they be wrong? And their incarnations are back, endorsed & approved by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This is a concrete evidence that people who practices Dorje Shugden are genuine and valid as these high Lamas didn’t go to hell because of this!

    Wow amazing discovery like Indiana Jones adventure. A rare 1,000-year-old Buddhist statue found by a Nazi expedition in 1938. It seem a meteorite that crashed into the Earth about 15,000 years and it have been carved into a Buddha statue by Tibetans as claimed. With this it has proven that the people living in that time were already practicing Buddhism.
    With this discovery scientist had classified the statue as a rare class of iron meteorite. They mentioned that the meteorite must have fell to Earth approximately 15,000 years ago.
    Interesting discovery . The priceless statue is believed to originate from the pre-Buddhist Bon culture of the 11th Century. It sounds like an artifact from an Indiana Jones film.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Rejoice to Pastor Lanse receiving such a blessed, precious, and sacred Vajrayogini image from Rinpoche. Pastor Lanse is one of the many fortunate students who did received gifts from Rinpoche. Reading those comments and from this blog, tells us more of Pastor Lanse . Pastor lanse must have worked very hard benefiting many though. May more people be inspired by her going all the way working for Dharma.

    Merely by looking at the holy image of H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche is a blessing. Could imagine it when those who have met H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche in person…. the kind of feeling . What a blessing it is to see such a very rare and holy image of H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche in Tantric dress. He was one of the great lamas of the twentieth century. He was the root lama of both tutors of the 14th Dalai Lama and the teacher of many of the other Tibetan lamas who have been bringing the Dharma to the West.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The soothing sounds of nature have helped literally hundreds of thousands of people across the world with finding an inner calmness to help them with study, getting to sleep, relaxing, meditating and chill out.

    I enjoyed all the sharing but I loved to hear the spring bird songs. To me the calming sounds of nature are a natural tonic for mind, body and wellbeing. Thank you for the interesting sharing.

    Reading this interesting post again of the 5th Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden . The story of how Dorje Shugden become the Protector of Our Time. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama. His extraordinary scholarly knowledge, spiritual practice and having a very close relationship with the 5th Dalai Lama had then causing a lot of jealousy and tension among the officers of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa was often considered to be more popular then it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Many people all over Tibet, Mongolia and China would come to pay their respects to Tulku Drakpa, and request teachings from him. As Tulku Drakpa’s fame grew, it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge the officers who was so devoted to their master plot the murder of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. They had different ways to kill Tulku Drakpa many times without any success. As Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen earlier promise to Nechung to arise as an Protector, finally revealed the method to his own death. Interesting story one must read to understand better. It was a sacrifice he chosen to fulfil and uphold in order to become the Protector of Our Time.
    After realized the mistakes done by his officers, the 5th Dalai Lama composed prayers, crafted a statue to recognize Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as a Dharma protector. He even built Trode Khangsar which now stand in the heart of Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Chengdu is a sub-provincial city which serves as the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center where visitors can view endangered giant pandas in a natural habitat. Been an ancient city with a history of more than 3,100 years, it offer many tourist attraction. Many of the ancient sites around Chengdu reflect the influence of Buddhism, as well as the agricultural history of the region. Thousands of tourists both locally and internationally will flock to this city the beauty of it. It seem Chengdu is one of the most leisurely cities in the world. Well , Chengdu is famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes. This is because of the world famous Sichuan peppercorn that is grown in the region. Not only that the Giant statues of the Buddha one in Leshan, show the enduring presence of Buddhism on the area.

    Many monasteries have their own Dharma Protectors to safeguard the organisation and its interests. Setrap is one of them , they will propitiate their Dharma protectors every month to request for protection, blessings, and assistance for the growth of the Dharma and the well-being of the sangha. Each and every monasteries have their own. Interesting read of this article all about the close historical relationship between Dorje Shugden and Setrap.
    Setrap is emanation of the wrathful emanation of Buddha Amitabha, while Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri. Setrap is an ancient Dharma Protector from the holy land of Bodhgaya in India. Sworn to protect the teachings and the practice was introduced to Tibet, and has since flourished. Many great Lamas and Geshes are known to have practised both Setrap, as Gaden Shartse’s Dharma protector, and also Dorje Shugden. They cannot be wrong definitely where Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the CTA. They knew the practice is very beneficial . has been the Dharma Protector of Gaden Shartse Monastery for the past 600 years. Dalai Lama visited the Dharma protector Setrap’s chapel in Gaden Shartse Monastery, South India. Dalai Lama even consecrated the chapel with prayers and sees Setrap as an enlightened being. Dalai Lama also endorsed Setrap and his practice as a beneficial one where he did affirmed the practice of Dorje Shugden through such close association. Interesting read may more people read this article to have a clearer understanding.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Looking at those pictures and videos tell a thousand words. What is underneath those lakes mentioned , cannot be taken too lightly. Well-known lake monsters such as
    Loch Ness , Champ, Ogopogo and so forth has been sighted in those lakes around the world. Stories of a sea monster lurking in the depths of lakes are actually centuries old. To believe or not its up to individual. The unexplored darkness of lakes serve as one of the gateways for these fascinations. Many had claimed witnessing those creatures but with no hard evidence. People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Sightings of such lakes creatures is interesting to many. I do believe there are such sea creatures inhabiting in those lakes centuries ago. Some of those creature’s names indeed new to me. Interesting to know that they do exist after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article.

    Amazing ,truly beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara. A special gift given by Joshua and family from Singapore to Rinpoche. I love looking at 1000-armed Avalokitesvara where ever I went seeing any images of it i will always stare at it hoping to get hold of it. Avalokiteśvara is one of the most famous bodhisattvas in Buddhism, who embodies the quality of compassion and having the ability to understand the suffering of others. Merely looking at this beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara paints a thousand words.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Revisit this blog again as the miracles stories of Lama Tsongkhapa Statues truly interesting. We are fortunate to have met our Lama Tsem Rinpoche learning all the wonderful teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa. Its such a beneficial teachings and practicing it with so many amazing benefits for us all. Reading this post have me increased my knowledge. Looking at the rare foot print of Lama Tsongkapa which is a sign of his tantric achievements is indeed a blessing for us. The practice of Migtsema is amazing and powerful as it contains the meaning of all the Buddha’s 84,000 teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Since the monks are holding so many vows, serving them is an opportunity for HUGE merit. They are a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace. We need to support them and creates the causes for the Dharma to remain , creating the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves as well. In Bangkok , its amazing having the opportunity to make offerings to the monks and nuns early in the morning. Giving to the monks and nuns is an incredible thing, we create unbelievable merit if we offer to the monks with the motivation of Bodhicitta. Looking at Angel makes offerings, reminds me of my trip to ChiangMai where I have an opportunity to give packed foods to monks early in the morning. Its truly wonderful indeed. If I have the opportunity again I will definitely love to offer foods to the monks.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow interesting one of the most fantastic escapes in history now comes in comic for everyone to know the truth. The true story of how HH the 14th Dalai Lama had made a daring and dangerous escape. Dalai Lama had secretly travelled to India back in 1959. The truth not many knew but with this comic , more people will understand better. Its in simple and yet easy diagrams where kids and adults would love it. The great Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden through the esteemed Panglung Oracle had helped Dalai Lama .
    Interesting comic book one must read it .

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

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

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
