Lou Xiaoying, 88-Year-Old Poor Chinese Woman, Saved More Than 30 Abandoned Babies

A Chinese woman who has spent her life in poverty is being hailed a hero for selflessly saving dozens of abandoned babies over the course of her lifetime.
According to Chinese newspaper Yanzhao Metro Daily, 88-year-old Lou Xiaoying has rescued more than 30 abandoned babies from the streets of Jinhua, China, over the past four decades.

Together with her late husband, who died 17 years ago, Lou personally raised four of the orphaned children, while others were taken in by Lou’s family and friends.

Now suffering from heart and kidney failure, Lou — who scavenged recyclables from trash cans for a living — is finally being recognized for her years of quiet service, with many in her community stepping forward to lend a hand in her final days.

The whole thing started when I found the first baby, a little girl back in 1972 when I was out collecting rubbish. She was just lying amongst the junk on the street, abandoned. She would have died had we not rescued her and taken her in,” Lou said, according to the Daily Mail.

“Watching her grow and become stronger gave us such happiness and I realized I had a real love of caring for children. I realized if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives,” she continued.

Lou, who has one biological daughter, single-handedly adopted her sixth child — a little boy she had found in a dumpster — at the age of 82.
“Even though I was already getting old I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash. He looked so sweet and so needy. I had to take him home with me,” she said of her adopted son, 7-year-old Qiling.

One of Lou’s adopted daughters, 33-year-old Zhang Juju, said that despite her mother’s extreme poverty, she always tried to provide the best life possible for the children she rescued.

“[Even if her old age] there was no stopping her from going out,” Zhang told Chinese news website 19lou.com, adding that her mother had gone out three or four times daily to collect trash for money, even as she started to get sick.

According to the Chinese state-run news agency Xinhua, Lou is still thinking of her beloved children even after becoming so ill that she has almost lost the ability to speak and move.

“I don’t have many days left [but] what I want to see most of all is for…[7-year-old Qiling] to go to school. That way, even after I am gone, there will be no regrets left in my life,” she told Xinhua from her hospital bed.

Though Lou could not afford to send her eldest three children to school, she managed to put Zhang and another 33-year-old daughter through junior high school.
As Lou’s story of heroism and love makes headlines in China, people in Lou’s community have stepped forward to support and further her life’s mission.

An online fundraising effort has been started to help offset the woman’s hospital bills, and an elementary school in Lou’s hometown has offered to take young Qiling in at subsidized rates.

“This is the last wish of [Lou] and we must help her achieve it,” Jinhua City Primary School’s principal Zhang Fangxiao, who said he was extremely moved by Lou’s story.

    She is an amazing lady. Rescued more than 30 abandoned babies despite her financially challenge life. Most people would normally take care of their own family and will not focus on others but she shows us how precious life is and we should not be selfish and let the babies die. Instead try our best to give life a chance. A very inspiring lady.

  2. Anne Ong on Nov 6, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    My deep admiration and respect for Mdm Lou Xiaoying who despite poverty and old age. It’s really sacrificing,.love,comppassion,kindness and great strength to bring up more than 30 babies and her own daughter despite her poverty.What an incredible story of giving by a person whom by our measure, is really not in any position to give. It’s really very touching. She reminds me of my own wonderful beloved late granny who also sacrificed a lot to take great care of me until she passed away peacefully in a sudden coma. May Mdm Lou Xiaoying have a good rebirth _/\_

    无私的爱还有大爱都在这位大妈身上展现无疑。他的所作所为都不是为了演给别人看,而是出之她的内心,是真心为了不舍孩子流落在外而附出的一切。最值得骄傲的是她不曾向外求帮助,尽管生活不富裕,但他不曾放弃孩子。这让我想起报纸常报导的弃婴个案。所以大悲心和大爱心是最无价和珍贵的。

  5. Ck siah on Dec 23, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享。好感动的故事。做善事没分贵贱层次,只要我们有慈悲心, 去帮助那些须要帮忙的人,这样我们会累积更多功德和福报。不管我们这一世是穷或富有我们都要广结善缘。

  6. jerry_sito on Dec 23, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    感恩尊贵的仁波切的开示与分享

    感恩您不断地给我们鼓舞人心的故事。我们所有的烦恼似乎渺小和微不足道。这个故事告诉我们,我们可以继续帮助别人,即使我们的环境与状况不是很理想,只要我们拥有着一颗菩提心,不放弃,我们依然可以让我们的爱心,帮助有需要的人

    这个故事才是让我们明白什么是菩提心,与舍己为人的心

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    This lady was very kind and she really touched my heart. She is so selfless, she has rescued more than 30 abandoned babies. Although she is poor but she never give up and can still take care and raise 30 kids. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post.

  8. William on Mar 20, 2013 at 2:42 am

    An amazing touching story! She is such a kind lady and full of love. No matter how poor or sick she is, she could still take in the children she finds on the street and to give them a better life. It is very nice to read that in this world where most people are chasing for wealth and becoming more and more selfish, there is someone like Lou who is kind hearted and save lives. It is also good to hear that people are coming forward to help her after hearing about her story. Finally after over 30 years.

    May she gain so much merits in her acts of kindness that she will be reborn into a better life.

  9. uncle eddie on Jan 30, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    There are no better words that can be used to describe this noble and selfless lady who has done so much good things with her bodhicitta motivation in helping and benefitting so many other sentient beings. Of course the whole world willlove such kind heartedness and her pure devotion to relief the sufferings of others, using her ailing suffering body to take care of others, especially the uncared for children. May her next incarnation manifest more brightly and easier in her next life.

  10. jennifer on Jan 29, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    Mdm Lou is a truly amazing lady!!!

    Despite her poverty , age and illness, she still place her children first before herself. Her dying wish is for her youngest son to attend school. The love she has for all these abandoned children really fills me with tears. It’s so seldom that one hears or reads about such unconditional love – love that has no expections – truly one can say it’s Divine Love in Action.

    It is also her selflessness, her compassion, strength and courage that touches the hearts of anyone who reads this article.

    Most definitely one of the unsung hero(ine)s of the present day!!!

  11. beatrix ooi on Jan 28, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Mama Lou is a very caring and loving lady. Despite of her old age and little money she has, she still take up the responsibilities of raising up the children and she did it willingly. I am very amazed by her courage and kindness. May she lives a healthy life.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  12. adelinewoon on Jan 27, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    A lot of us like to say that we have limited capacity and that we can not do more than what we are already doing. 88-Year-Old poor Lou Xiaoying has proven otherwise. Obviously, the problem is not about our capacity, but how much we understand that we are actually heavily depending on others.

    To confine ourselves within a boundary that limit our potential is pure laziness of not wanting to get out of our tiny winnie comfort zones. Our mind is very powerful, we can “hypnotised” ourselves to achieve just about anything, to make us do what we set ourselves to do.

    The next time our laziness come to us, we should remind ourselves on what Lou has done. We should not procrastinate any longer and go out to do something good that challenges our bad habit of laziness. We’ll be amazed then how capable we are compare to the we that we thought before.

  13. Pastor Chia on Jan 21, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    My heart was so moving by Madam Lou Xiao Ying selfless love toward abandon babies she has safe. Despite her poor, she still continue shaving abandon child. Madam Xiao Ying treasure each child she safe and encourage her continue to keep doing more even she such as old age.

    Beside that i respect how Madam Xioa Ying value is life and others and show good example for many of us. Thank you rinpoche sharing such heart warming article at the blog.

  14. Henry Ooi on Jan 21, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    The humanitarian and compassionate deeds of madam Lou Xiaoying are the values Buddha taught and she exemplified them through her actions. It shows that one can care for so many if one wishes to.

  15. lewkwanleng on Jan 21, 2013 at 2:24 am

    China is a fast developing country, and since many years ago, they have started adopting this 1 child policy, and due to the traditional thinking of son is better than daughter, there are many people who abandoned their daughter in China. Such news is indeed very sad.

    What Lou did reminds me of Mother Teresa. In Lou’s mind, it is not about how much she has (because she doesn’t have much financially); She only care about others and never thought about herself.

    May she have a speedy recovery, and when she finally pass away, may she has a good rebirth..

  16. Girlie Ooi on Jan 20, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Mama Lou only had the welfare of the children in mind. She selflessly took good care of them when no one else did. Even though she was old and frail and “poor”, she had everything. She has shown by example that there is no limit to giving. We do not need to be rich (financially) to be able to give – what we need is a good heart.

  17. Charmaine@MBF on Jan 20, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    “Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.” – Aristotle

    Thank u for sharing this inspiring story Rinpoche.

    It touched my heart and motivates me even more to contribute back to society, to gather more manpower and find out more ways on how to be able to assist the less fortunate.

    I pray fervently for more beings in the world to have more selfless compassion for one another and towards others. To help in voluntary or donations aid to provide assistance to people living in poverty or in unfavorable situations to provide relief for them.

    Mdm Lou’s a living Bodhisattva and a fine example for others to follow in her footsteps. To give freely and expect nothing in return but love.

    This story really so touching and she is very kindness 🙂 Totally respect this woman, that she is very old already, still very care of her children and make sure their children get study in school. This old lady really compassionate and kindness with her fully heart.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  19. Charlene on Jan 18, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing this touching true story.
    She was a heroine, a fighter that saved many little life who were mistreated as a rubbish. Although she was poor and survived with her basic needs, she has done wonders.

    I personally feel ashamed that we have comfortable life and have done nothing compare to this wonderful lady.

    She was a living buddha .. selflessly , compassion, lovingly care

  20. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 16, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Many life learning experiences are around us if we do open our eyes and hearts to see them.

    Heroes do not necessarily have to be almighty beings, they can be normal people like us, as long as we are willing to step forward and do what normally society sees as odd and unneeded.

    We need to fulfill so many requirements in our routine lives, bills, installments and etc, and so we are blind and feel emotionless towards what we as humans should do – to help other beings.

    Lou is such a kind-hearted woman. She is already so deprived of life necessities and yet she helps those abandoned children. She has a heart of Kuan Yin.

    May Lou have lesser sufferings during her sickness and that her touching stories can inspire more people to do what she has done.

  21. Catherine on Jan 16, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    My reflection after reading this article is that life goes on. Even if you are poor, if you have the energy and passion, you can still accomplish your mission.

    This lady’s mission is to save lives and she did it even when bed ridden by caring and asking after the children.

    Reminds me of Mother Theresa.

  22. hecelus tan on Jan 15, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Really touching! She is really like Chenrezig incarnation in samsara.
    She also inspiring most of us that showing compassion and love to others doesn’t depend on how rich you are.It’s just depend on action and motivation.Anyway,she already practicing Dharma all the way even though she didn’t take refuge in three jewels.May she always blessed by three jewel.OM MANI PADME HUM

  23. Felix Kong on Jan 15, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    This real story really touching. Lou is very kindness , she is 88 years but already save more 30 abandoned babies life. She is old and sick but still need collect garbage to earn some $$ for take care their “children”.

    “Abandoned Babies” cases increase every year . Have to pay attention at this cases to prevent more and more babies sacrifice like that .

  24. Ashlee on Jan 15, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Rinpoche, This is such heart warming. It is evident that we will always be remembered by our positive deeds. Despite her poverty, she is still able to find room in her heart to care for the abandon children. This kind lady has shown us that irregardless of our age, we can still care for others irregardless of our wealth. I truly admire her compassion.

  25. Carmen K. on Jan 15, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for this very touching and inspiring story.

    What hit me the most about this was the determination of Lou Xiao Ying, that even with her difficult living conditions, it did not deter her from her own choice to save the abandoned children. Quietly, Lou Xiao Ying continued living on, providing to the best of her ability to her family. Nothing stopped her from loving her children. She didn’t seek for glory or fame, to her, it was the right thing to do. Talk about compassion and kindness.

    You know, many of us give up the moment something we perceive as difficult arises. We chose to ignore so that we do not have to suffer any difficulties. We chose to complain so that we do not have to clean the mess we created. We chose to say NO, because in our minds, we are defeated by our own self.

    But Lou Xiao Ying smacks us in the face to tell us that nothing should be in our way of stopping us, especially to do something for others. Shut up, Get Up and Move on.

    What an inspiration she is. Thank you Rinpoche. I am sure I will remember it and think of it, during times when I choose to “give up”.

    Love,
    Carmen

  26. Bryan Ho on Jan 15, 2013 at 3:38 am

    such an inspiration stories… In the modern society like now we have 2 type of people, first noble person like Mdm Lou and second those who dumped their children on the street.

    Mdm Lou have contributed her whole life for others without asking for repay in any form, personally i think Mdm Lou is one of the role model for us to learn the art of giving. I’m really grateful about Mdm Lou especially when she mentioned: “I realized if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives.” 

    Mdm Lou might not be a Buddhist or whatsoever but she is a real Bodhisattva in human form. The real art of giving is not when one have 10 but give 1 but is one have 3 but he/she give it all out and keep nothing for themselves. Mdm lou show a very good example here, she might not be in a financial comfortable situation, but she still give whatever she have. She understand whatever she gave will bring more benefit in the future which is another person that can bring others happiness. Just imagine Mdm Lou have rescued more than 30 human life which each one can grow up to be a noble person just like their foster mother.

    Mdm Lou might be alone when she first started to do this but we can tell from the article more and more people are stepping in to help her to spread her life’s mission.

    This story is touching because it’s show me an old lady like Mdm Lou never say no to her body condition, financial condition or anything that we think is very important in life. Our mind is over body in her case. She doesn’t really care for her own body anymore, she really practice offered up body speech and mind for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    In the other hand, we have people who just enjoy a moment of happiness, and created a burden that they will not want to face, in this case, a human life. Our precious human life doesn’t seem much precious anymore, people will just enjoy the fun and leave the “trouble” to others or just dumped “it” away.

    But will the problem really be gone after dumped it ? The guilt of life will haunt whoever done that the whole life, which can be really scary when he/she is getting older.

    Well, we always have choice in life, which we can choose to be Mdm Lou or the parents of “street baby”. We should start training our mind now and make sure we will not let our body control our mind and it might caused trouble for us in the future.

  27. Jean Ai on Jan 15, 2013 at 12:28 am

    “I realized if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives” – I was completely taken aback by this sentence. Even though she’s so poor, she values human life above making a living for herself. What little obstacles do we face, that we are thrown off by? Even when Lou was sick, she still eked out a living collecting rubbish to support her adopted kids because she couldn’t bear to see them suffer. Talk about strength.

    You know, people often cut mothers a lot of slack because they are women and not as good as men, and don’t have careers, etc etc. but really, mothers are the strongest people. They will go through hell and back for their children, and are capable of loving something that is not their flesh and blood VERY deeply. On the days I wish I had been born male so I can serve my lama more closely without society judging, I think of all the strong women who inspire this world like Aung San Suu Kyi and now Lou, and all the strong women who have helped to build Kechara and I’m very glad I have a chance to be one of them!

  28. Andrew Boon on Jan 15, 2013 at 12:12 am

    What an incredibly touching story of resilience, compassion and sheer determination not for herself but for others!

    Truly inspiring how when most can just turn a blind eye, she brings to the forefront of her concentration.

    Even in her sick bed, she said the following:

    “I don’t have many days left [but] what I want to see most of all is for…[7-year-old Qiling] to go to school. That way, even after I am gone, there will be no regrets left in my life,”

    If this is not the epitome of focusing out, I don’t know what is. It brings tears to my eyes to think someone can think only of others when they themselves are in pain. Humbles me to a point of guilt and remorse!

  29. tenzin llhamo on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    Such a selfless person! Even though she was poor and had barely enough, she rather save the children than let them die! She made sure that they have a home and food. Even though she is sick, she continued to go out to collect trash. She did so much and asked for nothing in return. She is truly kind and compassionate. She is like the second mother Teresa…

  30. Martin on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    What an incredible story of giving by a person whom by our measure, is really not in any position to give. Most of us, if not all who are reading this post do not have to collect garbage for a living and yet we hardly do anything beneficial for anyone. We are so caught in our own affairs that we have never really gone out of our way for others. The money that we make would be many times over what Madam Lou would earn and yet she has managed to do so much for those children. It should really put us to shame. What excuse can we really offer when we examine our own situation in comparison to hers? We cannot say that we cannot afford to help – surely we are in much better positions that Madam Lou. All we can truly say is that it never occurred to us to look beyond ourselves.

    Parents will understand most, the effort and commitment it takes to look after a single child and yet this kind person has cared for 30, and even putting some through schools. It simply confirms that if we have the sincerity to do something good for others, we will find a way to do it. On the other, if we are not committed to helping others, then there will be no conditions that could be considered ideal for us to care for others. It is really a question of priorities, sincerity and effort.

    And the reward? Well, clearly the reward is real happiness but those of us who have some Dharma knowledge already know that but it has not driven us to do more and yet this kind lady does not need to have a Guru present all the time to remind her to use her life to benefit others. We would like to think that she is an extra-ordinary person. Well she is, but not because she is endowed with any extra-ordinary gift other than compassion. She has compassion and she and used it accordingly. Most of us just talk about it and make up all kinds of excuses. Too bad for us.

  31. Jay Jae on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    No love can compare to that of a mother’s. What this lady has shown here is really selfless love. To pick of a living thing from the trash and give them another chance in life is no difference than to give birth to them.

    Though we can point fingers at those who have done the injustice of abandoning the baby in the trash but think again. Won’t the parents of these peeps be suffering in their own ways as well?

    The only way out is to show endless love to others and from there be able to receive love the right way in return?

  32. Jean Mei on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing Lou Xiao Ping’s story with all of us!

    She’s a great example of “If it’s meant to be, it is up to me.” She had the choice of ignoring the crying abandoned child every time, as other passerby’s did, but instead she chose to save them.

    As someone who goes through the public trash can for a living, she’s naturally looked down in society. She could have saved all of her money for retirement, or for her own child. She digs the dirtiest place on the street to sustain her acts of love and kindness. Incredible.

    She’s a real inspiration for me – such selflessness, unbiasedness and strength.

    The quiet hard workers always turn out to be the most inspirational!

  33. David Lai on Jan 14, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this heart-rending story of a beautiful lady of such compassion. It’s not easy to be on the streets, living the hard life and still develop that kind of compassion for others, especially when she’s not obligated to take care of any of the abandoned kids.

    I call it compassion because she is very old when she started caring for the abandoned kids and she herself is living in abject poverty. That makes her such a beautiful person and I am sure she will go to a beautiful place in the hereafter. I am glad that people are starting to help her cause and hopefully, someone would step up and continue her passion of raising abandoned babies.

    The other thing is what makes a difficult life worth living is leading an altruistic life. Leading a selfish and materialistic life of acquisitions only leads to despair while leading a life of benefitting others makes for a happier life whether one is living in luxury or in poverty. It is obvious that wealth does not bring happiness so one must really think what is it that makes for a meaningful life.

  34. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jan 14, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    This is really touching to know mdm Lou good heart and unconditional love to the abondand baby. She is compassion and true living buddha. Her selfless actions show that if you have determination ,you can do it regardless you have money or not.i salute to her for hr great kindness.

  35. Wah Ying on Jan 14, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    It’s so touching…If a poor lady who earn little money by collecting recyclables can help and raise so many children, why can’t we have more help…And her caring and loving nature has influence on her children, and move the society, that’s beautiful.

    Her story tells helping those in need those who are weak does not need big knowledge, big money but big heart.

  36. Datuk May on Jan 14, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    Reading this article brought tears to my eyes that there is such a saintly person, tears of shame as to how little I have done to elevate suffering from another sentient being.

    Such great love and compassion is uncommon, but I truly believe that we nurture this nature in us and create a better world of love, caring and giving of all that we have and can be.

    I am very touched by such greatness in Madam Lou.

  37. patsy on Jan 14, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Despite living in poverty all her live, Mdm Lou did not hesitate to help, care and raised these abandoned children. Even at an advance age of 82, it did not stop her from adopting and raising Qiling. Her love for the less fortunate surpasses everything. She did not set limitations on what she can or cannot do. There were no excuses of being poor and not able to help. She just did it.

    My salutation to Mdm Lou for her selfless and heroic acts. May she be well taken care of for the rest of her live.

  38. Joy on Jan 14, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    This true story is a great lesson and inspiration on pure kindness and generosity. This old Lady who has nothing and yet she can give so much more then most of us who have much more than her. And she did it quietly without anyone’s help or any recognition.

    In fact the more we have, the more we are rich, the more we are selfish… this is what we encounter most of the time. What a huge difference, perhaps it is because she has nothing, hence there is nothing physical to give but her giving and care is so sincere, that it is priceless! She has given us a measuring stick to reflect upon ourselves, how much we who have more give, show kindness and care. Kinda puts us all to shame!

    She is a real mother sentient being whose love is unconditional. She reminds me of a living Kuan Yin Boddhisattva. I am sure she will definitely have a positive rebirth.

  39. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 14, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    “Watching her grow and become stronger gave us such happiness and I realized I had a real love of caring for children. I realized if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives.” I love this quote, Madam Lou compassion really touched my heart. May her selfless act inspired many and create an awareness for people who abandoned babies.

  40. Sharon Saw on Jan 14, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Thank you for sharing this story about the amazing Mdm Lou. What I find amazing about her is that her love for her adopted children surpasses everything else. She doesn’t make her own circumstances a limitation on what she can do for others – she doesn’t think hard about how she will make ends meet. She just does what she needs to do because it needs to be done. These abandoned children need her so she just takes them in and works around it. It reminds me of my friend who told me about his mum – he said they had 7 siblings and his mother was a single parent. She earned under RM300 a month but she looked after all of them and they never felt that they wanted for anything. Happiness and contentment is not how much you have monetarily but how much you feel you have. If we keep acquiring money, it never ends, but if we can develop the feeling of contentment, then no matter what we have or don’t have, it will be enough.

  41. Valentina Suhendra on Jan 14, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Dear Lama

    Thank you for continuously giving us inspiring story. All our troubles seem small and insignificant. This particular story really tells me that we can continue to help others despite our less than ideal situation.

    Rather than being run down by my expectations about how things should be, I will continue to use the remaining years of my life to be in service for others.

    Much love and care

    Mdm Lou is a living Bodhisattva,she has all the unconditional Motherly love for all the 30 or more abandoned babies. She selflessly took care all of them quietly and even made sure that the youngest 7 year old adopted son will be able to go to school.This story is so heart warming and touching. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. Compassion conquers all.

    Dear Rinpoche
    This is a very touching story. Most of the time is not we cant afford it but we just choose to satisfy our own needs

    How incredible it is to see an example of someone who makes no excuses for helping others. So many of us let very small obstacles get in the way of doing something more – we say we don’t have time, not enough money, we’re too busy, too old, too young, too ill. I guess Ms Lou puts every of our excuses to shame and proves above all, that it’s not so much about whether we CAN do something, but about whether WE WANT TO.

    Thank you for sharing this Rinpoche. Your teachings to me have always been about believing in who we can be and what we can do, and not getting stuck in who we are now and believing in our limitations. This story reminds me, as ever, that the only thing holding me back from achieving great things is myself.

    My deep admiration and respect for Mdm Lou Xiaoying who despite poverty and old age, continued to care for abandoned children. At an advance age of 82 years, she still selflessly adopted her youngest son Qiling without thinking of her own fragile condition. One of her adopted daughter had testified that Mdm Lou always tried to provide the best life possible for the children she rescued. May Madm Lou be well taken care of in the final days of her life and may she have a good rebirth.

  46. Jace Chong on Jan 14, 2013 at 1:25 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this, I saw what is the real giving from this lovely lady.

    Despite her own poverty, she gave her very best for others. The responsible to take care of a baby is heavy, but she rather to suffer her life, and didn’t want to see others just being abandoned. Thanks Mdm Lou, I salute you. May I gain such generosity and selflessness, to release others from sufferings.

  47. Julia Tan on Jan 14, 2013 at 12:29 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful story with us. What can I say? Lou who has nothing, who has to look into rubbish tank to look for recycle items to sell, someone as poor as KSK’s clients, who can have a such a big heart to take the child back home and takes care of her and give her the best she could unconditionally. He happiness is to watch them go to school and have education and knowledge so that they can have a better living in future. The world has become much beautiful because of someone like Lou.

    This story made me contemplate on how little and how small that I am doing and contributing everyday. We always claimed how much we have done for others. Let’s change a position and look for how much have we not done for others.

    How lucky these abandoned children were brought home by Lou. What about those who do not have that karma to receive the kindness of Lou, where are they now?

  48. Vinnie on Jan 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

    The gesture of Mdm Xiaoying is very nice and sweet. She has committed herself to such great work towards the community and those “abandoned” kids. It is under the care of hers that enabled them to have a future in their life. Although she was not able to provide the best for the babies that she saved, but she gave them the best that she and her late husband could give to them. Thinking about the well being of these babies, forgoing about herself.

    I pray for good life for her remaining days, and that she would reincarnate into a good family. Allowing her to continue to spread her compassion and love for others.

  49. sarahyap on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Wonderful report on a lady that has done so much for society but went unnoticed for most of her life. This is true love and passion, where although she go through so much hardship, she can still face the pain even without a single recognition… at least not until now.

    I like what she said about recycling human life… it is truly meaningful. When I think about our day to day situation, there are many times people around us face problems which sometimes we overlook or plainly ignore their difficulties. We should take it upon us to help them, bring the up to their feet when people are feeling down, because that is the time when they need us the most… just like the children Lou found, and she graciously took them into her arms and provide a safe haven for them. What a beautiful way to live life through helping others.

  50. Lim Han Nee on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post. Young Jutika’s insightful response to this touching post is an eye-opener to me. When I first wrote a response to this post much earlier on, I did not see the situation through young eyes that are so piercing in their scrutiny .

    Yes, this post pays tribute, and more; it celebrates the limitless nature of Lou Xiaoying’s giving and compassion. It shows how, if we have the heart to give and to love, nothing(not even the fact that we ourselves are poor) can stop us. It is a marvellous illustration of the Perfection of Giving, which always has bodhicitta woven into its fabric.

    Lou Xiaoying shows such an abundance in her spirit of giving, as opposed to those who are wealthy and miserly and display Scrooge-like poverty of spirit.

    Hence, being kind and generous is never about whether you have the means to be kind and generous. Rather,it’s about whether you have the expansive spirit of Lou Xiaoying or the mean spirit of a Scrooge.

  51. Erickksiow on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Deeply respect to Mdm Lou Xiaoying, that is call love without agenda, and Mdm Lou did showed us what is Love and Generous. Mdm Lou inspired me so much.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this to everyone of us.

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  52. philyong on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Amazing how one person who is living in poverty herself could still think of the welfare of others. It is very inspiring to read about Lou who worked tirelessly by picking up trash to support the children she had found on the streets. She was poor but she did not let that stop her from showing kindness and compassion. Focusing on those qualities, she was able to give a living chance to those children who were abandoned. This to me is truly selfless.

  53. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    A very touching video, how someone is serving others selflessly in quiet, her intention of adopting these kids and taking care of them is never to gain fame or any recognition, in fact, it is due to her sickness then only it brought up attention to the public.

    She is so poor already and yet, she never stop giving, she work all out just to give, never for herself. Even she is sick, but she never take the sickness as excuses to rest, she still continue to go out to work, because the money she gets is for her adopted children.

    How beautiful for her to be so selflessly, imagine someone in such poverty stage but can still raise 30 kids, but most of us who only take care of 1 -2 kids or none but still claiming not having enough money to help others.

    May more people can be like her, serve others selflessly.

    • Lim (KH JB) on Jan 18, 2013 at 12:30 am

      Dear Albert,

      I totally agree ur comments, nowadays a small family with 1 and 2 children and even none still every month “Tak Cukup Pakai” but actually is our mind set that feel not enough…

      May Madam Lou Xiaoying good health good fortune this and future life, thanks Madam Lou Xiaoying for being a good example for us to serve others selflessly…

  54. terri on Jan 13, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    people who put babies in trash do not value life, and it is awful.

  55. Jutika on Jan 13, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    First of all thank you for sharing this very touching article on this Old Lady and her kind, touching and virtuous deeds.
    Here are my thoughts.

    1. This lady was very kind in her life and thus has earned the right to be cared for.

    2. This lady has really touched my heart on how when she is so old and sick and yet she still works hard collecting trash to recycle just to make sure that her adopted kids have enough food to eat as well as the best.

    3. She was not even asked to adopt any kids at all but she had very strong compassion throughout her life, nearly nobody so poor would go to such extent of raising 30 kids that are not even her’s. Yet she did it and look at how much care she is getting from her kids.

    4. I believe that everyone should be like that not just to the extent
    of kids but first starting with animals, we should not even say that you have any money because an old lady like this who is living in poverty can manage to take care and raise 30 Children.

    5. This shows that we should not always say that we have not enough money when you already have enough.

    Love
    Jutika

    This is an interesting read. When I grew up, I heard about paranormal activities in tunnels. Ialways thought that these are some kind of Asian believes. However, it seems that similar stories happen all over the world. Tunnels do always relate to paranormal activities. This article introduces a few famous creepy tunnels from all around the world with stories and photos. Hope you would enjoy reading it.

    I am fortunate to come across this beautiful old post of His Eminence Kyabje Lati Rinpoche. H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche has given many teachings and initiations for his fortunate students and had benefitted countless students. He has dedicated his whole life mainly on dharma practice and giving teachings. He has travelled extensively, benefiting dharma students in various parts of the world as requested from many countries in Europe and America. Our Guru too have received many tremendous teachings,and personal advice from this great master. H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche has authored many important books on Tibetan Buddhism. At the age of 88, H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche entered clear light, leaving a legacy behind him.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and those rare pictures of the cremation of the holy body of H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche.

    Wonderful teachings of the meaning of OM MANI PADME HUNG. The Om Mani Padme Hung mantra is at the heart of many Buddhist traditions. When one recite the mantra Om Mani Padme Hung to oneself, it invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. It will then transform our impure body, speech, and mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama again says it’s possible to have two Panchen Lamas

    Isn’t it great that the Dalai Lama had declared the China chosen Panchen Lama is a real reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama. It is no surprise given that this Panchen Lama’s enlightened actitivies had and is still greatly benefitting hundreds of thousand of people with the Dharma and practices. Find out more details of his recognition.

    It is time for Nechung to retire already. He has been the state oracle giving His Holiness the Dalai Lama advice and whose advice has been creating problems since the 13th Dalai Lama’s time. It was Nechung’s advice that actually led the 13th Dalai Lama to pass into clear light prematurely.

    Another example will be His Holiness’s escape from Tibet to India. Nechung took trance and told His Holiness the stay back in Tibet and there is no need for His Holiness to leave. However, Dorje Shugden oracle took trance and told His Holiness to leave Tibet immediately and even gave details on how they should leave Tibet.

    Luckily they heed Dorje Shugden advice and left Potala Palace heading towards to India. That very night, the Chinese invaded Potala Palace and if His Holiness heeds Nechung’s advice, he would be in grave danger. This shows the unreliability of Nechung’s advice recently.

    Dorje Shugden has a minister called Kache Marpo who is an emanation of Hayagriva which means Kache Marpo is also an enlightened protector. When the Oracle takes trance of Dorje Shugden, Dorje Shugden can only stay for a short while because his energy is very strong and he is not able to talk. Hence, Kache Marpo becomes the voice of Dorje Shugden. The Oracle and take trance of Kache Marpo and deliver messages to people on behalf of Dorje Shugden.

    Many people suffer from the Dorje Shugden ban, Dorje Shugden followers regardless if they are Tibetans or not, they are discriminated against. They are segregated from the so-called ‘mainstream’, the Dalai Lama group. For me, I actually gain a lot from the ban. I don’t mean to say the ban is very beneficial or it is good, but there are lessons I have learnt from the ban.

    If there was no ban, I would never be able to really learn about what Guru Devotion is why is it so important. It also made me realise things are not always easy, it teaches us to value what we have and not to give up no matter how hard or difficult the situation might be. Our Guru’s promise to us is enlightenment, it is priceless and extremely precious. Hence, we should never abandon our teacher or give up the practice he gives us. I hope the ban can be lifted very soon so everyone can focus on Dharma practice and not the politics surrounding Dorje Shugden controversy.

    Women are always seen by society as the weaker ones, many still think their job is to take care of the family. Many high positions in a company are held by men because women are seen less capable. However, look at Dr. R. Nyamaa, she was the Mongolian pioneer Ophthalmologist, pioneer Doctor of Tuberculosis, Scientist, Honorary Professor of Medical University and Honorary Doctor of Mongolia and Folk Doctor. Women are equally capable as men, they have to be given the same opportunity to strive in the field the choose. We are in the 21st century, gender should not be a factor that stops people from pursuing what they want.

    Wow….saffron is such a medicinal spice with so many amazing benefits. Such as for sleeping disorder, treatment of cancer, intestinal gas , depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and so forth. It seem that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world and it has been revered for its medicinal properties since ancient times. The aroma and flavour of saffron is unique and difficult to describe. It is an extremely labor-intensive crop. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus. Great information to know that saffron is added to the water offerings on our shrine making the offerings more rich and beautiful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    As a child Rinpoche showed sign of speciality in a way. Rinpoche has had suffered abuses, problems and sufferings since young. Rinpoche has had experienced much more than anyone else. All the sufferings Rinpoche had gone through merely for the sake of preserving the Dorje Shugden lineage and to purify the obstacles arising from future practitioners and people he can benefit. Whatever Rinpoche encountered did not discourage Rinpoche from spreading Dharma to everyone of us and across the globe. Rinpoche’s guru devotion has inspired him to keep moving. We have Rinpoche to thanks for bringing Dharma to Malaysia. We are fortunate to learn, practice Dharma in this life time . With folded hands thank you Rinpoche.

    Interesting first time hearing this….. Buddhist monk hitting people with a broom to purify and clearing one’s obstacles . Different religion and faith have their own way of purifying and blessing. A more usual form of Thai blessing would be sprinkling water on the fore head. A monk who was seen forcefully hitting temple-goers heads with a broom is normal to them. Even though the smacking may look violent, but it didn’t harm anyone recording to the Buddhist monk. I have seen in Chinese temple, one or two occasion that the deity in trance using branches of leaves hitting temple-goers to bless them.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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.

On January 26, 2019, Venerable Arjia Rinpoche who is a close friend of the Dalai Lama asked the Tibetans to stop discriminating against people who practice Dorje Shugden and regionalism. His speech called for unity for the preservation of Tibet\'s unique culture and religion and all Tibetans should be friendly with each other regardless of religion and regional origins. His speech is powerful and much needed at this time. Very beautiful. Thank you Arjia Rinpoche. Please see here: https://bit.ly/2CdOz1A

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

    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
