A real compassionate idea!

Dear friends,

 

Sometimes I come across ideas that are kind, compassionate and really warms the heart. Practical and possible too.  I like to share these ideas with you. I am sure you will find it of value also. Let me know what you think and what you can do to put this particular idea I share today into action or who you can share it with?

*********************

 

“We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:

‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”…
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”

Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers – three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have any suspended coffee?’

It’s simple – people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

    A very compassionate idea, pay extra so when the unfortunate ones or homeless can have a good coffee which they called it suspended coffee.
    Its aims to inspire and spread kindness and humanism through simple, unsung and random act in everyday life. A simple act of kindness can brighten someone’s day, or even save a life. To me it is a wonderful idea to practise kindness by enabling people in need to enjoy a pre-paid coffee, or sandwiches or maybe a warm meal.
    There are a number of suspended coffee and is a tradition that comes from Naples, Italy, US and more spreading to other parts in Europe. The message that kindness matters has connected with people across the globe
    It will be definitely wonderful if restaurants or coffee shops in Malaysia could start the trend and have the so call suspended coffee.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    This is a great idea to help those who are homeless and cannot afford to buy food. Not only that it allows customers to practise giving and generousity. Such a wonderful way to cultivate care and kindness to others. Would be really good if more eateries in Malaysia adopt this idea to help more people.

  3. Lucas Roth on Aug 10, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    First of all, this is amazing as this idea is extremely kind and thoughtful as these people are realizing that there are people that do not have what we have so the least we could give them a hot drink on a cold day. I am also sure that that having a hot drink makes their day, to experience kindness and compassion to the people that have less. It is extremely kind.

    And to the people that do get the suspended coffees for the homeless, THANK YOU!!! You are extremely kind and thoughtful people. Even though these people don’t go out to give them food personally because of their personal reason at least they make an effort to help the homeless. The effort is what counts.

    So what we should all do now, go outside and drive to your nearest soup kitchen and help in anyway, you can help to pack food, distribute the food or just help cook or whatever. Just do anything to help the homeless in anyway now! It is important to show kindness to the homeless and they are not so fortunate like you and it teaches you compassion. So go and help out today!

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 8, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Wonderful concept, designed to give a helping hand to someone who might be cold without food and are hungry. To be hungry is not something most of us in the developed countries are used to. It is a basic necessity food, yet many in the world still go without it.

    Hope this concept gets spread all over the world.

  5. Uncle Eddie on Jan 18, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    It is obvious that in todays society, there is so much tensions, pain and unbearable sufferings of modern life. Its obvious that more love and compassion are bound to grow. Therfore, in such an environment like todays tough, mental and modern environment with so much rushing, competing and building of wealth and so forth, the practice of love and compassion is all the more than ever required! Love and compassion can make everyone happy even when alone, and also make one feel wanted and lovely. Most important of all, love and compassion make even the toughest environment “Friendly”. Om mani padme hum.

  6. Low Khjb on Jan 12, 2014 at 11:04 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.It is really a good idea to start it in malaysia.It was really kind of the shop operator too to offer such service to the less fortunate .
    It is great to know that there are those who care for the less fortunate in more unconventional way.Allowing them to consume their sustenance in the most decent manner according to their needs,I would think they would only use it as a last resort.

  7. Jutika lam on Jan 10, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is such a great and wonderful idea!!! It’s great to know that not everyone in this World is cold hearted to homeless and needy people!

    This is such a wonderful and great idea and I hope more and more restaurants will adopt the”suspended” system!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story!!!

  8. Aw Wei Ling on Jan 9, 2014 at 11:38 pm

    Wow! That’s a great idea. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  9. Angelshooi on Jan 9, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Very good idea and one of the way to help people in need and practice generosity! Thanks Rinpoche for this touching article.

  10. Shelly tai on Jan 8, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    Wow! Is a very good idea ,that way we can share our resources with more people who in need. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post with us.

  11. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 7, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    This is a very kind act, I have not heard of something like this before. Sometimes people can go all the way to help the others while some prefer not to. A small act like this although is very small, but it can help to keep someone warm. This idea is brilliant! Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  12. Yee Mun on Jan 7, 2014 at 11:48 pm

    Rejoice to the coffeehouse owner and those people that buy the suspended coffee. It might not cost us a lot to do that, but the simple act can bring a smile and warm the heart of the homeless/the poor.

    This is really a wonderful way for people to do good deeds. Hope to see more restaurant/cafe in Malaysia can do this too. I have came across a small restaurant run by a buddhist center whereby u eat 1 meal but pay for 2 person. They will keep the meal for any homeless or the poor that walk in. So instead of coffee, they provide food.

    But I also have bad experience that even though the food and drink were paid for, but the owner and staff of the restaurant won’t allow the homeless guy to step into the restaurant. Can only take away the food.

  13. Lucas Roth on Jan 7, 2014 at 11:08 pm

    wow, this is amazing. This is so kind and somebody gets something that they can’t get. It is extremely kind of the people that do this. If i was somewhere where i can get suspended coffee i would get 1000 suspended coffee and 0 coffee for me. thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  14. Edward Ooi on Jan 7, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, this idea is so awesome and nice. It will be wonderful if the world is doing this kind of activity, imagine if the world is doing this then the beggars wouldn’t have to worry about having a empty stomach. I can’t wait to have this kind of restaurant in Malaysia.

  15. joy on Jan 7, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    This is a great idea and can be easily implemented by any shop owner, so any homeless can come in to any shop that supports this and get a free, warm meal or a drink. Hope this idea grows big. We have to find creative ways always to do what we can to give a helping hand.

  16. Felix Kong on Jan 7, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    This is great idea, someone who really cannot pay for a cup of coffee also can enjoy a warm coffee too .So touching moment when see this old man having a coffee. Practice giving and benefit others will make more happiness.Thank you Rinpoche sharing 🙂

  17. AdelineTan on Jan 7, 2014 at 3:42 pm

    Well, i think this is a brilliant idea. Since every one needs to eat, it is more convenient for the busy people to practise generosity by ordering foods for the under priviledge, and on the other side,it is also easier for the poor to go fill their stomach, i hope more cafe and shops can provide this kind of service! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  18. The Karmavore on Jan 7, 2014 at 5:09 am

    Nice to see this idea catching on in different parts of the world.
    I first heard of this idea about 6 months back from a friend of mine who had a similar experience, as written in this blog post, at a local coffee shop.
    I believe people have a compassionate nature within them but many of these people have a difficult time tapping into it. It’s not that these people don’t want to be compassionate, rather its just that we are not socially conditioned to be outwardly compassionate towards less fortunate people. Being outwardly compassionate in public places is a practice on it own.
    Every city has its own share of people whom struggle on a day to day basis as well as people who live in abundance. People who have more than enough usually prefer to donate through a charitable organisation which is great but rarely do they get to see the fruits of their giving in front of their own eyes. Many people don’t want to be seen interacting with less fortunate people due to their social status so this is a easy way for them to give and see that other people are receiving due to their own kindness within their local community.
    Example: If I suspended a coffee last week and I go back to the same coffee shop this week and I see suspended coffee being given away, I will feel great knowing that someone else suspended a coffee and it made a person happy that needed a warm drink. I could easily relate this to the coffee I suspended the previous week which would make me want to do more of this type of giving.
    Now imagine this idea spreading to cafes, food stalls, restaurants, bakeries and other businesses so the less fortunate people have a place to turn to for food and drink and more fortunate people will have outlets to practice generosity in daily life. Wow!
    This is a great idea that is easily put into action. Please share it with family, friends and on social media.
    I could not imagine being Compassionate getting any easier than this.

  19. mima on Jan 7, 2014 at 5:00 am

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for showing us various way to express our caring towards each other.

  20. mima on Jan 7, 2014 at 4:58 am

    What a wonderful idea, thank you Rinpoche for sharing and showing us various ways of caring for each other!

  21. Julien Roth on Jan 7, 2014 at 1:32 am

    This is such a kind and thoughtful idea. I love it! When i was reading this i thought to myself that i actually wanted to be there to watch the beggar get the coffee. And its also good to know that people actually care about others even though they haven’t even met the person.

  22. ASH NG on Jan 7, 2014 at 12:23 am

    It’s really a wonderful idea and so heartwarming 🙂 Maybe i can start off from myself and hope it continue from there. Just loving it 🙂 Thanks rinpoche for sharing this fresh concept cheers

  23. henry ooi on Jan 6, 2014 at 11:39 pm

    Interesting way to benefit the needy without wastage of food and drink. Those in need can easily find what they want in such outlets that probably have signs to inform the public donors and the recipients.

  24. Mavis on Jan 6, 2014 at 11:12 pm

    Heartwarming! Thanks Rinpoche for sharing!

  25. Sean Wang on Jan 6, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    This is very clever and compassionate. This should be an option in Malaysia. Maybe a Kechara Cafe in the city can do this if one is built in the future. People can ask for suspended coffee for the homeless in Malaysia.

  26. Carmen K on Jan 6, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    This is a great idea, and for the receiver, unfortunately they must be brave enough to have the courage to withstand the stares from the patrons at the eatery. However, I think the idea does sell because it gives people a chance to do good at minimal effort.

    Nice to see people taking initiative to think about others and do something about it. If you are in a position to do something, then please do, because everyone deserves the right to have a full stomach.

  27. benji on Jan 6, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche, for sharing this wonderfully beautiful thing! Like the others, i am so touched, and really feel like crying! i am really ‘itching’ to try out the idea here. True, it may not work here at first, but….. who knows, later? What i know though; some locals have the good habit of leaving some money with the local undertaker, to provide a decent burial for any (deceased) needy ones; and yes, often i have seen my local bread vendor giving away breadcrusts to some poor children; and the nasi-kandar seller sells rice with some simple dishes very cheaply to the poor vagrants who come round to his stall. It would be great to try out what Rinpoche shared with us really!

  28. June Tang(Khjb) on Jan 6, 2014 at 9:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post, it’s really warm my heart. This is my first time I heard about suspended coffee,This ideas really helping the less fortunately people. I hope that this kind action may apply in many place.

  29. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 6, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    Such a great idea – simple yet profound. It shows us that , if we put our ideas and thoughts where our heart is, then we will be able to bring much joy to those who particularly need it.

    Buying coffee in advance for a stranger , who will , for one moment experience a ray of light shining in his dark world.How kind!How caring! Ideas, like these, must spread round the world and garner oceans of support.

  30. sweekeong on Jan 6, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    This is the first time I heard about suspended coffee/food. It is a novel idea. I think this is a good for business because you don’t lose any money but the public may actually perceive the business as socially conscious in serving any customer without discrimination. Also it is a viable for people who are busy but still want to contribute to helping others by buying the food in advance. Other hand this system can also be subjected to abuse where those who afford to buy food still request for suspended food when they order. How do business owners identify those who really deserve it?

  31. jose v. Caruso on Jan 6, 2014 at 5:27 pm

    is warm and wonderful food atodos here in the city where I live the idea was not accepted by a cultural issue and the lack of information I will insist on the implementation of generosity … is the awakening of Bodhichitta Rinpoche … grateful.

  32. Graceleong on Jan 6, 2014 at 3:54 pm

    For this awesome idea to work, we need mindful and charitable hearts to pay for the drinks and food, plus we need restaurants or food stalls which are generous and unbiased. Many eating places would not allow the homeless in. In my opinion, the society in general will take sometime to get used to such ideas. But i do hope it will be implemented widely throughout the world !

  33. Han on Jan 6, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    What a great idea !
    Giving with no agenda and care with no boundaries!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  34. David Lai on Jan 6, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    Great idea! I don’t think this works here in Malaysia but I love the novelty of the idea. We need something similar that will uplift people, bring people together and create harmony amongst races and religion.

    • lewkwanleng on Jan 6, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      David,

      There are quite a few restaurants/cafes who adopted this idea here in Malaysia, especially in Penang. You may google it. However, it is not just coffee, because in this part of the world, the under privileged need food more than coffee, therefore, some of the cafes allows patron to pay for pastas which will be served to homeless or needy.

      When a person is hungry, it is the most difficult moment, and when there is hot food, it is the best gift for a person. Once I bought steam bread for a homeless, and when he was eating it, he was tearing.

      I know quite a number of stalls in Malaysia do serve food to homeless and less privileged, and most of the stall owners do it quietly and diligently for many many years. These are indeed unsung heroes who help many but they don’t want the fame.

      I do hope more and more restaurants/cafes will adopt this idea.

  35. Jacinta on Jan 6, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    It is very heart warming. I do not mind paying but how many can actually, physically buy and hand it to them or to have actually asked them to sit and enjoy? Thumbs up to those who can provide this kind of service!

  36. Lian Mok on Jan 6, 2014 at 11:15 am

    Wow…I’m impressed. Heard this on the radio just last week and here I am reading about it again. Thanks Wai Meng for emailing this link to me. Now, when I go to coffee places, I will ask if they have this programme.

  37. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Jan 6, 2014 at 10:23 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this effective way of helping the less fortunate people. It is not only creating the cause of happiness and warm feelings for the less fortunate people, but it will also serve the opportunities for many normal people like us to do more charity and spread the love, compassion and generousity in a very convenient and easy method. Simple action yet positive effect in return. I will share it in my Facebook account.

  38. Daisy Sun on Jan 6, 2014 at 10:05 am

    Wow, that’s a very warm hearted action and could easily melt my heart away. Not have I seen so far in KL. I usually go direct, get the foods/ drinks and hand to the beggar. This is definitely a great and meaningful idea which I had shared with a friend, founder of Beans Depot. Hoping she has a successful year 2014 to celebrate with passionate towards coffee and generating more compassion to reach out to others.

  39. Grace Leu on Jan 6, 2014 at 9:15 am

    Thanks for Rinpoche’s sharing. This is a warmth heart actions which show the care of society. It can create a chance for let everyone can do good deed and show care for those less fortunate . hopefully this idea can be applied in every place.

  40. Pastor Martin on Jan 6, 2014 at 7:36 am

    This is such an incredibly simple idea with nothing extraordinary to do which is out of the way for the donor. They only thing that needs to be done is for the mindful and kindness switches to be turned on. I have seen this at certain 7Eleven Stores before but the idea seemed to have waned off and even when it was practiced, I didn’t see much being bought and given away. Ideas need to be applied consistently before it will begin to work.

    An idea such as this would simply go ballistic if practiced pervasively at restaurants/eateries, grocery stores, clinics and even pet shops. But its also correct that it is the store/shop/business owners who will have to start this and keep it going consistently. Who knows, it may even draw in more business because most people would prefer to be kind if its made easy for them.

  41. Bradley on Jan 6, 2014 at 6:49 am

    What a wonderful idea ^.^ . I’m going to give that a try next time I buy coffee. Bring someone a cup of happiness ^^

  42. sarahyap on Jan 6, 2014 at 4:28 am

    Wow! That’s wonderful! Reading about it made me feel very touched. I hope we have something like this in Malaysia where the less fortunate will be able to walk in to a coffee shop for a meal without having to beg for one…

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the mysterious part on Buddhism. I didn’t know divination is also practised in Buddhism, I have always thought divination is only practised by non-Buddhist. This shows how compassionate Buddha is, Buddha will use different ways to help people.

    Since most of us don’t have the karma or merit to connect with Buddha directly, divination is the best way to seek advice from an enlightened being. Taking refuge and asking for advice from an enlightened being is safe because Buddha is omniscient and Buddha will give us guidance that will truly benefit us.

    Dromton Gyelwa Jungne

    Dromtonpa has come down in history as both an enforcer of Second Propagation ethical standards and a holder of Atisa’s tantric lineage. According to the Blue Annals, Dromton was charged with expelling tantric practitioners from Atisa’s audience, this despite the fact that at Samye Chimpu (bsam yas ‘chims phu) Atisa gave Dromton initiation into tantric systems, including the Doha tradition of Bengal. The Blue Annals credits him with revising the translations of both sutra and tantras, including the Astasahastrika Prajnaparamita, and the Jnanasiddhi Tantra.

    The Fifth Dalai Lama, Ngawang Lobzang Gyatso

    In 1622 he was identified as the rebirth of the Fourth Dalai Lama, Yonten Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 04, yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616) by Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen (blo bzang chos kyi rgyal mtshan, 1570-1662), who had been the tutor to the Fourth Dalai Lama. Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen gave him the name Lobzang Gyatso (blo bzang rgya mtsho) and enthroned him at Drepung Monastery (’bras spungs dgon). Much later the Fifth Dalai Lama gave Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen the title of Panchen Lama.

    Thank you for the sharing, I do agree in the article say man are responsible for everything in their life. In simply way man are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Only man use the reason and conscience with which they are endowed to act with humanity toward human, animal and planet.

    I truly agree with this article. Every single action that man has to do and done has to connect to one another for perfection in this world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for telling us this story for us to learn from it. Rinpoche gives a lot of advice and instructions to many people and students to help them. However, no all of the recipient of Rinpoche’s kindness will be willing to go all the way with Rinpoche’s advice and instructions even though it is for our own good. Some will stick all the way but some will stop halfway due to their laziness and fears due to the lack of faith in Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche will not give any advice that will harm us. Sometimes, the instructions might seem to be harming us or unreasonable, but we have to have faith in Rinpoche that eventually it will be beneficial for us in the long run.

    It is very good to know about the origin and the story of the Buddhist deity. The story of Methar shows us how the Tibetan leadership has been operating since the older time, how powerful highly attained lamas are and how an evil spirit can be subdued to do good to help others.

    Power and money are what the Tibetan leadership is interested in. They will make false accusations on someone to take over someone’s wealth and power, like in the case of Demo Rinpoche and Methar. Methar turned into an angry spirit after he was killed. However, due to the power of Serkong Rinpoche and his deep Dharma imprint, Methar was subdued and agreed to give his service to Kache Marpo.

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche: Birth, Death & Bardo

    Birth, death and bardo: what are these three things? How do people die? We have to understand what we mean by birth, death and bardo in general. We must know how the bardo is entered. We die, go into bardo, take birth, again die going yet again into bardo. There is an unending cycle of the three; no end to it at all. It is useful to develop aversion to Samsara (or Cyclic Existence) and very good for practice to know this.

    People often relate witchcraft to evil practice. However, in this modern time, no one is penalised for practising witchcraft. It is not a main stream religious practice and people can practise it freely.

    Therefore, it is very ridiculous for the Tibetan leadership to penalise Dorje Shugden practitioners because of their faith. Dorje Shugden practice started about 300-400 years ago and it has never been a threat to national security, there is no reason it should be banned. May the ban be lifted soon and no more discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    The Rain Stopper

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

    It is extremely worrying to know that parts of America such as Texas and Florida are experiencing the impact of powerful hurricanes. The horrendous natural disasters have destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, offices and facilities in these areas. Sadly however, during such disasters, animals are often the first ones to be left behind, and saving the life of a human takes precedence over the life of an animal. The same thing happened during the recent Hurricane Harvey in Florida. But this time around, what was most disturbing was the fact that animals were left behind to die during the disaster.

    The helpless animals, such as dogs in this case, have had to suffer immensely during the storms. As can be seen in the article, there is an uproar regarding dogs being tied up during the hurricanes which made it impossible for them to escape. In fact, the authorities may have encouraged people to leave their pets behind in some areas, but they should not have been tied up and left to suffer from the strong winds and rain. No one wants to be put in such a position, and neither do animals.

    The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported sightings of Lizard Man vary from scaly humans to large bipedal lizards, small dinosaurs and everything else in-between.

    It is no surprise that many theories have been put forward in an attempt to crystallise the undefined nature and origin of the Lizard Man. Essentially, there are two leading theories – one based on evolution and the other on extra-terrestrials.

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.
    2 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
