The Hero In My Heart

My mom, Mdm. Lee Kam Meng is a super animal lover. After I told her about how Kathmandu Animal Treatment has spay program for stray animals, my mom started her journey to take care more cats and dogs.

She loves animals since young. After all her children graduated and moved out from the house, my parents have more spare time. Instead of just feeding stray cats and dogs with leftover food, they started to buy cat and dog food to feed the animals who wonder around at the valley behind the house.

They are not rich people, after my mom celebrated her 55 years old birthday, she applied to take out the money in her KWSP account and spent on spaying all the cats, and taking care of the dogs.

My parents paired up really well to trap the cats and sent them to clinic for spaying, after that they put them into cages to make sure they healed before running freely and get the wound hurt. Most of the cats do not leave even after they are free from the cage. They stay around and became my mom’s babies.

One of the inspiring case is, there was a skinny injured dog, not sure where she came from, wander around the valley behind my house. She can’t eat,  one front leg broken, whole body cover with skin problems, sometimes will bark in pain. My mom manage to pursue a vet doctor to came to the house and send the dog to vet in the doctor’s truck (as my parents not sure how to handle an injured dog).

After the check up, the doctor says the sickness is quite severe and advice to put to sleep to cut down the sufferings. My mom rejected, as I told her before, never put animals to sleep, it equals to killing, very bad karma. She insisted to take the dog home and take care of her. The neighbours kindly spare a space for the dog to stay. My mom start to take care of the dog diet, feed her with cod liver oils (as the vet doctor suggested), clean her, apply medicine to wounds, sometimes chant “Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum” to all the animals.

Miracles happened. After a few weeks, the dogs healed slowly, become healthy and gaining weight. My mom named her Xiao Bai (means little white in Chinese). She sent Xiao Bai for medical check up, the vet doctor asked where you get this pretty dog from? My mom proudly answered this was the dog you wanted to put to sleep last time. The doctor cannot believe it and the health condition is very well, just keep on the diet.

 

When Xiao Bai first came, she was badly injurded.

 

 

 She becoming better after a few weeks

 

NOW!

She is completed healed and healthy now, she has a friend I am not sure the name is “Tiger” or “Leopard” that always protect her from attacked and bullied by others cats and dogs.

Actually my sister and I don’t call the dog Xiao Bai, we call her Fat Sheep as her nickname.

The neighbors like her very much. Some help to shave her, some feed her when my mom goes out for a few days.

Here are the cats, my mom has spayed over 20 cats by her own funds, now there are about 16 cats left at the valley behind the house. Some was poisoned to death as some neighbours feed rat poison to them as the cats make noise sometimes at night.

 

Those in cage are just sent back from vet.

 

Some of them don’t look very pretty, but my mom can find something cute in each cat and can tell me long story about them.

 

 

Having a siesta!

    Dear Jace,

    Looks like the heroine (you) that I’ve known have some interesting stories behind and now I understand better why you’re in love with them! 😅

    All the best!

  2. Lin Mun on Feb 5, 2017 at 9:51 pm

    Thank you Jace for sharing the heartwarming story. Both you and your mom are very compassionate people and treat animals with so much love and care. I have not heard of people willing to spend their retirement fund from their EPF and spent it all on the stray dogs and cats. Very generous and kind of her.

    May her actions continue to bring more awareness to care for the animals.

  3. James Long on Mar 20, 2013 at 3:07 am

    谢谢你们对动物或是另一个众生的关爱。世界和平人人都能说出口,但都得从身边开始行动。不然也是空口而无行动的喧哗。

  4. Jutika Lam on Mar 17, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    It warms my heart to see/hear of people like Jace Chong’s Mom be inspired by the good and kind things people in the world are doing.

    Even until now I have never heard of someone who does not have an animal shelter but yet still doing as much as what animal shelters are doing.

    I am very impressed that atop all the mean and abusive to animals kind of people there are still people like the honorable Pak Mie as well as Jace’s mom to cross boundaries and do what someone with a kind heart would do.

    What I was more amazed was that she 100% used a savings and did not take a single cent from other people at all
    I believe that no matter how poor we are we should still be able to rescue animals or at least be kind to them.

    It is amazing how many cats she has managed to save!

    Congratulations Jace Chong on winning the Medicine Buddha Statue!

  5. William C on Mar 15, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    Dear Jace,
    The story of Xiao Bai reminds me of the story of a dog in Kathmandu Animal Treatment. It is also a rescued dog which was in a very bad state but with love and care, the dog recovered. What your mom does is full of love for beings who could not thank her but she still continues her work. She is such a kind soul.

    Not many people can do what your mom does. SHe is truly inspiring and may Medicine Buddha bless her and all the animals she saves. She can be part of Kechara Animal Sanctuary when it comes up in KFR. Thank you for sharing.

  6. The Yen on Mar 13, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Such a beautiful story and Xiao Bai, though not very Xiao now, has turned into such a beauty. But the most beautiful of all is Madam Lee in her tireless crusade towards animal welfare.

    Love is such a nurturing trait.

  7. Lucas Roth on Mar 11, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    wow i am sooooooooooo glad that the doggie is ok! this story is amazing a heartwarming, who says we can not do this, we can! i am so happy to hear that so many lives have been spare by Jace’s amazing family. i hope that they save more lives to come.

  8. Davin on Mar 11, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    Congratulation Jace. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story. Your mom is amazing and inspiring. Her kindness to the animals will inspired many others. May your mom be blessed with good health and continue with the good work she is doing.

  9. Adrian Cho on Mar 11, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    This is story really so touching and inspiring me.. Thank you Jace for sharing this interesting story of your mom 🙂 This called no matter how, if we give our sincerely heart to treat someone or animal, nothing is impossible.

  10. patsy on Mar 11, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    Thank you, Jace, for sharing this beautiful story of your mother. Mdm. Lee is indeed a kind, compassionate lady whose unselfish acts have saved so many stray dogs and cats. Instead of spending the money for herself, she used it for the benefit of the strays.

    I rejoice that she is able to invite Medicine Buddha home to bless the family and her furry friends. May your mum be blessed with good health and a strong body to continue the beneficial work she is doing.

  11. Lim (KH JB) on Mar 11, 2013 at 12:34 am

    Congratulation Jace, ur mum is so awesome. We salute to her.

    May her always good health & good fortune to continue benefit more sentient beings…

  12. Martin on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    There is such a difference between the Xiao Bai from before and the one now after receiving care and kindness from Mdm. Lee. The difference is not only in Xiao Bai’s physical condition but much more. What Mdm Lee did for the poor dog was to give her a new lease of life and a sense of love and security, not just a new skin and some food. The gift of relieving one from trauma is truly a gift of kindness and Xiao Bai has a home and a better life because Mdm Lee did not see her as a dirty and rotting animal but a life worth saving and sacrificing for. And this is what makes Mdm Lee a hero. This is also the first time I heard of a retiree taking out her life-savings to care for stray animals. Retired people are usually quite concerned about being able to last the distance with their savings but clearly, the welfare of others is just as important. I am very Glad that kindness has brought Menlha into Mdm Lee’s life and may she live a long and happy life.

    Looks like this kindness runs in the family because Jace is also extremely kind and together with Khoo, they have saved countless stray animals. Khoo tells me that whenever Jace sees a dead animals by the road, she would always take them and give them a proper burial How kind and very thoughtful.

  13. sweekeong on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Such beautiful real story Jace! I am very happy for your mum. She is a real animal lover. With a kind heart and dedication your mum doesn’t give up and keep Xiao Bao nursing her until her recovers a bit before sending to the vet. Thank you for writing such a beautiful story and testimonial for what a person can do help the animals. 🙂

  14. wei theng on Mar 10, 2013 at 2:27 am

    Dear Jace, your mum and dad are such a beautiful people! Now I know why you are so kind are loving as your mum is so kind and loving & love animals too!
    A lot of people take out the money from KWSP after their retirement for their children or their house, car, etc. However, your mum took out the money from KWSP for the cats & dogs! It’s such a great way to spend the money and celebrate her 55 year old birthday! Her love and care to animals are so sincerely and unconditional.
    Thank you Jace for sharing this beautiful story and thank you Madam Lee for so inspiring and also loving to the animals.

  15. Sharon Saw on Mar 9, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    Dear Jace,

    Thanks for sharing about your mom. If not for this blog post i would not have known of her wonderful care for animals. How Xiao Bai has healed and looks completely like a different dog is amazing! Your mom is an amazing woman and she will inspire so many people to look after animals. I love your post!

  16. tenzin llhamo on Mar 9, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Dear Jace, your mum and dad are truly heros in their own ways. Even your neighbors are kind to help out when your mum needs it. The most interesting part was when your mum spent her savings on the dogs and cats. I am really happy that many people nowadays are concerned about the strays everywhere. And I am really happy that Fat sheep is healthy and well!

  17. beatrix ooi on Mar 9, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Jace’s mama is such a kind lady, she’s just like the female version of Pak Mie. I’m very glad to know that xiao bai is completely healed now, thanks to Jace’s mama!! Animals are treated very badly nowadays, it’s nice to have people like Madam Lee and Pak Mie to take care of them.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  18. verontung on Mar 9, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Dear Jace and Jace mummy,

    Thanks you for all the kind hearted work you all have done for these animals.
    I feel so happy for the actions you all have made. Truly, it’s not easy to spend your money and time on these animal. Not everyone can do that. Like me, i still having time to communicate now with my parents to love stray animals.

    Jace, your mum really is awesome!

  19. Hank Ng on Mar 9, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Keep going Mdm. Lee Kam Meng, I will dedicate my prayer to you for your long life and healthy aways to benefit so many lovely furry friends that have the affinity to meet you and share your love. I would like to sponsor two bags of dog food for xiao bai and whenever I have extra cat food for free. Rejoice!

  20. Albert Ratchaga on Mar 9, 2013 at 1:32 am

    Thank you Jace for the sharing, your mother is really inspiring, she is so generous, kind and selfless. She is spending her own money to save and feed the animals, not only this, she also influenced the neighbours with her kind act. She is really doing it genuinely without asking anything in return.

    Her action also shows how much you have been taking Dharma into practice, because of your sincerity, your words create big influence to your mom.

    A real Hero that hidden behind the scene.

  21. sarahyap on Mar 9, 2013 at 1:22 am

    Thank you for submitting this wonderful story. It’s beautiful to see people taking care of animals that are helpless and in dire need of help. These people are deserving of an award!

    I’m really glad that Rinpoche conceptualized this competition for everyone to share their stories with us here… for all the hard work these people have done, they do deserve much recognition from the public, not for fame, but for the public to appreciate their effort in helping these animals.

    Congratulations on winning the Medicine Buddha statue. May all the fostered animals be blessed and have a good life without much sufferings under the car of this compassionate lady.

  22. Pastor Susan on Mar 9, 2013 at 12:09 am

    Dear Jace
    I remember sometime back you shared with me about your mom and to read the stories and see the many pictures absolutely makes my day. I would very much like to meet your mom and all her lovely friends. It is obvious where you got your gentleness and kind heart from. There are not that many people who are like your parents and I wish very much to thank them. I look forward to meeting them soon.

  23. edward ooi on Mar 8, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, Xiao Bai/ Fat sheep is so cute. She had suffered a lot but at least now her body is getting better thanks to Rinpoche’s mother and also Medicine Buddha. I never like to see animals suffering. I hope that no more animal will ever suffer again.

  24. Paris on Mar 8, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    What a wonderful sharing Jace, thank you! I really rejoice to hear in what your mother is doing out of such kindness and goodness of her heart. She is like a lady version of Pak Mie! (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/the-honourable-mr-pak-mie.html)

    I’m also so glad to hear of her efforts and care for “xiao bai”. There are many cases like this where vets are quick to recommend putting down a dog or a cat, but actually, all they need is just a little love and care – which is the best healing. The photos of her now are beautiful – she does look a little like a fat sheep too hehe.

    I guess this is where you have become such a kind animal lover yourself – you have helped me to rehome some of my cats too in the past, and I see how you and your housemates are constantly rescuing dogs. Thank you!

  25. Joy on Mar 8, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Oh my Buddha… Jace… your story is sooooo sweeeeet!!! You mum is like an angel for animals. I never knew there is such wonderful kind animal hero who is your mother, who does not need fame or recognition but helps these poor injured voiceless beings through real care. How kind of your mum and dad to be doing this, it is really compassion in action. Really admirable. She has so little yet she does so much more than some other people who complains they don’t have enough.

    I really really love the story and picture of Xiao Bai and the cute cat that protects her. So adorable and I am so glad your mom did not give up on her and continued to nurse her back to health. She definitely deserves a beautiful Medicine Buddha statue to help her heal and plant Dharma seeds to all those furry freinds she save!

  26. Jay Jae on Mar 8, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    dear Jace

    u have such beautiful parents who extends their love beyond the boundaries of their children. I felt so much care and love when I saw the pictures of your mother’s dogs and cats.

    May your mom be blessed with good health by the power of Medicine Buddha’s prayers to be able to continue with the good work she is doing. May all the animals who come under your mom’s loving care be blessed also.

  28. Sharon on Mar 8, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Your story has spurred me to do more for the strays and to teach my kids to be kinder to animals. Thanks so much for sharing your story. I think your mum is awesome for doing this.

  29. Sheryl KH (JB) on Mar 8, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Dear Jace,

    Heroes are everywhere, your mummy has a gentle heart towards animals.

    What has transformed in ‘Xian Bai’ is another testimonial that with love and care all animals can be beautiful and healthy. The recovery in ‘Xiao Bai’ is remarkable surely.

    Not many people will dig out their money to take care of strays. In short, these animals are none of our business. But your mum did the opposite just upon hearing a short story from her.

    I wish your mum much happiness, health and fulfillment in many aspects of her life.

  30. Wah Ying on Mar 8, 2013 at 10:07 am

    Xiao Bai’s story is really inspiring! With love and proper care all beings are beautiful. Thank you Madam Lee for saving all the dogs and cats and spraying for them. You inspire more to love animals.

  31. dash on Mar 8, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Thank you for all that you and your mom/parents do for these animals. _/|\_

    Many countries around the world have looking and working with China. They realised being friendly with China is a wise choice for the benefits for the growth of their country. China has become world largest economy country. For Tibet befriending China in long term will benefits both countries. Time had changed with Tibet having workshops with the Chinese is a good sign improving their relationship after all these years . People have their right and freedom to choose what they practice. Practicing Dorje Shugden is nothing to do with China. Every one of us have the right and freedom to choose what we want to practice. HH Dalai Lama is looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be happen if the Tibetan leadership, letting go of the past and have more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government in future. And solving all the political problems and lifting Dorje Shugden’s ban once for all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    It is heart breaking, reading this article again, what Pastor Jean Ai had gone through and experience. Yet with strong determination all those abuses and attack by people whom she do not know, she did continue with her practice. Could not imagine how ungrateful the Tibetan Leadership treated the sponsor. Without the funds, sponsorship, monasteries and Dharma institutions would not able to survive for sure. Kechara organisation, and many others kind sponsors had sponsored millions to the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries of India. Not only that sponsoring of monk robes, books , statues , painting and jewelleries to name a few. Even changing the flooring of the monastery as well. Can imagine those sponsors go all the way to send them all those stuffs. And have raised so much sponsorship for them and had donated yearly in fact or when they asked for. And now none of them are allowed to go to the monasteries any more . All because they had practised Dorje Shugden’s practice. Countless other lamas and Shugden practitioners had raised funds for the monasteries too and they too were not allowed to have connection with. Sad ….there is no religious freedom at all. By now after decades , I do hope the Tibetan Leadership will lift the ban on Dorje Shugden for a better peaceful communities. May more read this post for a better understanding of what happening in the Tibetan Leadership and those in exile living in India.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up for the Tibetan people and for those Dorje Shugden practitioners .

    Different people have different reasons for wanting to become ordained. Sometimes I do wonder if unless the reasons are right, one should not get ordained but on the other hand I think maybe one should take the leap of faith even if the reasons are not entire “correct”.

    Modern people becoming ordained is tougher than in Buddha’s time, there are much inner and outer battle they need to overcome. May those who have the thought arise to be ordained, have more determination to make it happen. Thank you very much,for sharing this mind-changing article with all of us.

    With their expertise a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, coming together to explore knowledge of cold energy . Li Kim and team going to haunted houses to experiment the energy. The haunted house they went looks scary. Joining them is also a Taoist master, finally concluded the presence of supernatural beings, as their findings found that the energy are dark and cold. As the unseen beings do no harm, they decided to do Taoist prayers and combined healing of sound, energy before leaving the area. I do believe those unseen beings do exist. Glad to learn that sound can heal the environment and souls. . Sound wonderful .
    Thank you, Li Kim and team for this sharing.this knowledge.

    In Dharma, we learned that everything is impermanent, good thing will never last forever, that’s why we should not be attached to it as when it was gone, we will suffer tremendously, and a good news is, bad things never lasts.
    Life is a journey filled with opportunities, hardships, heartaches and its test for our courage. There is always a reason of our existence in this life.Thank you very much for this good article.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets. I believe that everything happens for a reason ,and there is a reason behind everything. That’s why Rinpoche asked to think carefully and consider certain things. Due to Rinpoche’s clairvoyance, Rinpoche knew the consequent. Rinpoche wanted us to learn to be responsible for our decisions that is beneficial to all and not jumping into anything blindly. And that is how I pray to what I want to come to be published.
    Glad to know some knowledge of Mount Shasta which I have not heard before being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing with important explanations, some knowledge to learn and guidelines for us.

    It won’t be supress Rinpoche felt more Indian as Rinpoche have been staying in India long enough. His early life spent in the monastery in India, serving his teachers and the monastic community, has taught Rinpoche cooking more Indian foods than western foods. Even all these years in Malaysia, Rinpoche preferred Indian cuisine which is rich in spices and masala such as dhal, paneer tikka, aloo mattar and paneer butter masala. Rinpoche will go all the way his students to serve Indian food to visiting Sangha so they would get a taste of home. Glad to know more of Rinpoche through this article. With Rinpoche explanation of how he felt and inherent in the Indian tradition culture, traditional spiritual practice and devotion to a spiritual teacher. All these points that Rinpoche was more Indian as what Rinpoche felt and having a strong connection with it.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    nformative article on Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen which more and more people should read and understand better . The truth is the truth and how Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen rose as a Dharma Protector as promise. The closeness of 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, has cause jealousy among the officials that led to the murdered of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen more than 400 years ago by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama. The 5th Dalai Lama realised the mistakes of his officers , then built a Dorje Shugden chapel and composed a prayer texts . The Chapel still exists at Lhasa known as Trode Khangsar.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting write up

    Well good and very informative article reflexology. After reading it , I learn some knowledge from there. Reflexology may be beneficial in restoring balance and harmony in the body and releasing tension. Practitioners believe that it helps facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions, and produce a peaceful mind. Researchers have been doing a research on it , found that there’s many benefits to support it. When an application of pressure to our feet, hands, or ears , it sends a calming message to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. That’s fantastic.
    Interesting read of how the spread of reflexology was introduced to Europe can be traced to the 14th Century. And then to USA , by William H. Fitzgerald, an American doctor known as the father of reflexology. And how he developed the Zone Theory.
    Thank you Pastor Antoinette Kass for sharing this post.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. They regarded Dorje Shugen as an enlightened being, as such together with Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. It was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas. Many high Lamas has since been relying on Dorje Shugden as their dharma protector as they its a beneficial practice and has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas.
    The 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen being as a reincarnation of his own grandfather, the 35th Sakya Trizin Tashi Rinchen. Interesting stories told as how he was born and the special link with the Sakya Trizins. Dragshul Trinley Rinchen was more of a hermit lama, and incredibly having visions of both Tara and Vajrayogini.
    Recording to the Sakya throne holders the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden indeed definitively is Avalokiteshvara. Six of them are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. And even composed prayers, pujas , propagated and promoted Dorje Shugden within the sacred Sakya lineage. Chapels been built too as such they cannot be wrong in their practice and a very research evidence had also confirmed it too. Interesting read …biography of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting 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

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

    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
