Super Rich people that enrich

I love discovering about people who do something different. Who think of others and do something about it. Not just wish it but do it. They give us the courage to do more and not be afraid for ourselves.

J.K. Rowling is a super kind and super wonderful person. I treasure reading about her. This caught my eye and I had to share it here.

I am sharing this with everyone not to suggest you give everything away. But to think another way. These highly successful and wealthy people can think out of the box on a higher plane. I guess they arrived where they are by thinking different. Not better or worse, but different. Being different and not just following the flock can make a big difference positively. Wealth is something timeless that people have aspired to since the beginning of time. But what we need to remember is what it cost us to achieve the wealth and after we have achieved it, what do we really have. Then what? When we have more than we need, what shall we do afterwards? This is important. Is more better or what do you think?

Read this article and share with others. Think different. Think higher and use our lives for more than just wealth perhaps. These people are doing more than just living the wealth. What would you do? What will you do now if you have achieved your comfort zone?

JK Rowling, the first female novelist billionaire, recently lost her exclusive status because of some very good deeds.

 Forbes, which has produced an annual list of billionaires for the past 25 years, said that the “Harry Potter” author dropped from billionaire to millionaire due to Britain’s high taxes and her charitable giving.

 “New information about Rowling’s estimated $160 million in charitable giving combined with Britain’s high tax rates bumped the Harry Potter scribe from our list this year,” Forbes noted in its “Billionaire Dropoffs” list.

 The celebrated scribe, who was once an unemployed single mom living on welfare, has been particularly involved with helping families facing similar struggles.

 Rowling’s called One Parent Families, a nonprofit that empowers single-parent households, one of her favorite causes, according to Looktothestars.org. The organization provides child-care services and helps parents discover new job and education opportunities. The writer also founded her own charity, Lumos, which helps institutionalized and disadvantaged children in Eastern Europe.

“You have a moral responsibility when you’ve been given far more than you need, to do wise things with it and give intelligently,” Rowling said, according to Mother Nature Network.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article with us. J.K Rowling is very inspiring and she is very generous. She was once very poor and had many problems in life but she overcomes them. Her bad experience with poverty did not make her a miser but it makes her wants to help those who are experiencing the same difficulties as she did before.

    It is very rare to find a rich person to say they have enough money and they will give away the extra. Usually, when people are rich, they want to be richer, acquiring wealth becomes an endless pursuit. They think money can bring them happiness. For J.K Rowling, she finds her happiness in giving to others and to help others to alleviate them from their suffering.

    Apart from J.K Rowling, the rest of the rich people on the list are also very inspiring. All of them have pledged to donate most of their wealth to the charity. They understand that when they die, they cannot bring the money with them, it is more meaningful to use the money to help the needy.

  2. Lin Mun on Mar 10, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    It is always inspiring to read article like this. Just how generous are people in giving their wealth to help others. Many people just like to chase for more money, status and power but neglect the others who are unfortunate. Giving is a practise to be compassion and to care for others. We should always remember to give as it is a great blessing to be able to do this. May more people be it rich or not practise giving and generousity.

  3. Joey Tan on Jul 16, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    Great to know that all the super rich and well known people had done a good deed by charitible giving. Despite their hard earn money, they don’t feel stingy to donate their money to others. Such an inspiring article to read. Thanks Rinpoche.

  4. Samfoonheei on Jul 12, 2017 at 11:13 am

    J.K. Rowling is one such lady who does not mind loosing her novelist billionaire satues to benefit so many .She is a British novelist, film and television producer, screenwriter and philanthropist, best known for Harry Poiter books.I read about her through her books.
    J.K. Rowling is the creator of the Harry Potter fantasy series, one of the most popular book and film franchises in history.
    She has donated a huge sum to charity….thats incredfible She has contributed to several causes including ones that fight illiteracy, multiple sclerosis and human exploitation.
    J.K. Rowling’s charitable donations is a good example for those super rich people.
    It great that there is a number or super rich doing more in charity…donating their money away for a good cause.
    Thank you Rinpoche fpr sharing.

  5. Chandra on Jan 13, 2015 at 4:34 am

    J.K.Rowling is quite an amazing lady. With her literary abilities and compassionate heart it is only natural that she gives much of her wealth to deserving charities. The people benefited by these charities really owe J.K.Rowling a big thank you. I am also happy that wealthy people recognize that wealth is not the be all end all destination of our lives. It’s commendable that there is a trend among the affluent to be generous with their fortune. These are bright and intelligent people who do not let their wealth harm them or bring them down. I congratulate them for that. Bill Gates and his wife are another example. Thank you for the article Rinpoche.

    • Chandra on Jan 13, 2015 at 4:44 am

      I would also like to add that I was born and brought up in Asia. In my teens I moved to England. One thing I greatly admire about the West is that the charitable and giving seed is planted in them since young. My school participated in every charitable activity for national charities and this would happen every couple of months. This is a nationwide trend/tradition. The BBC puts on much elaborate shows to raise funds each year and celebrities are always contributing. This was pleasantly surprising to me when I first came to the West because I had not heard/seen about such active generosity in my homecountry.

    钱本身并不邪恶,有钱也不是坏事—只要我们不是赔上整个人生、亲情友情来换取金钱,然后“在家里数钱”……有句话很“刻薄”:“不要只是穷得只剩下钱而已”,不过却如警钟。

    仁波切贴文里的善心人给我们示范了:钱唯有用在利益他人身上,才发挥了其作用,而我们也从中感受到心灵的富裕。看了贴文让我想起林则徐,他曾说:“子孙若如我,留钱做什么,贤而多财,则损其志;子孙不如我,留钱做什么,愚而多财,益增其过。”

    赚钱和成功类似,不是为了家里有多得不得了的钱而去赚钱,成功也不是为了让别人看见你成功而去成功。唯有有了比这个更大的目标,赚钱和成功才有它更深层和值得去追求得意义。

  8. Vinnie Tan on Nov 7, 2013 at 2:06 am

    It is just amazing how these rich people have a heart to share their wealth to those in need, expecting nothing in return. Just looking it at a secular way, it shows that they do kindness in them, people would also think that it is good that they are the ones that are being rich. It would be a very good publicity for them as well.

    Looking at it in a Dharmic way, it allows them to collect the merits that these funds that they have donated to help others. It would help them purify any negative karma that they may have collected while they were making the money, helping them to a better rebirth in the future.

  9. Tong sunsun on Oct 20, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    取之社会回馈社会一直是大家所追从的,这做法在西方社会还蛮被认同。然而因为西方和东方文化不同,东方社会多认为财产应该留给子孙,多亏现在许多的名人鼓励和提倡,渐渐的大家都开始认同把财产捐出帮助需要帮助的弱势群体。感谢这些有心人。

  10. Edward Ooi on Oct 16, 2013 at 12:43 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I didn’t know that Jk Rowling lost so much money is because she donated it to charity. I have no idea who the 10 people are but I think Barron Hilton is the boss of the Hilton hotel company. Some people who are really jealous of her talent said that JK Rowling sold so many copies of her book is because she has a baby spirit. And I have never ever thought that she would be this kind.

  11. Race on Oct 9, 2013 at 12:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is indeed very inspiring for these are successful people whom many of us look up to and knowing that they are such generous people makes them even more admirable. Being rich is one thing but being able to give up such a huge part of their wealth is easier said than done.

  12. Low Khjb on Oct 5, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.It is wonderful to know that there are still some kind and generous people,that are very wealthy which could be very shroud when it comes to money.
    But they could understand that they should not be too attached to what monetary wealth that they accumulate through their lifetime.The greatest satisfaction to them, would be how to use their wealth to help others in need.
    As they know that it is more meaning full in life to practice generosity by the way of helping others to overcome their short coming or sufferings without an agenda.
    We certainly hope that this Super rich could show the way to others to follow their path to truly enrich their lives through the practice of Generosity and Compassion ….

  13. Jutika lam on Oct 5, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am really glad that on Earth there are people such as J.K Rowling who may have lost here billionaire status but at least through her donations many people and charity homes have benefited from her kind donations.

    I hope that more people will be inspired by her and will also follow her footsteps and donate money to charity homes.

    It is really great that J.K Rowling is so kind and I hope more people will benefit from her donations!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

  14. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 4, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    It takes a lot of conviction and renunciation to give away so much money. Some people even when they give they want to know how it is being spent which is prudent of course. Though these people have probably checked out the organisation that they wish to support already and feel this is a good and worth cause to provide for.

    I guess they have realised that not being attached is true happiness.

  15. Uncle Eddie on Oct 4, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    It is said that there are great benefits from giving for anyone who engages in the practice as said by “Chandrakirti in his “Engaging in the middle way”;-
    Quote – “Even for very rough-minded beings with inferior compassion, intent on their own purpose, desired resources, arise from giving, causing the pacification of suffering”. Unquote. Of course Bodhisattva practice of giving purely with geniune compassionate concern for others and they enjoy the act of giving itself like what these “superior rich people do”, should be aspired to, on how to attain such superior realisation on the practice of generosity! Meantime we are advised to put an effort into small practices of giving by becoming familar with generosity in life, it will come easily in future lives!

  16. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 3, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Wise ways of spending wealth indeed. Benefiting the needy and spending one’s wealth on needy causes. They are rich and can actually use their entire fortune on themselves and their children. However, they make wise choices, when they decide to spend their fortune on others.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing about how the super rich people share their wealth with others, following the adage – Give and gifts will be yours.

  17. Ck siah on Oct 3, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    一向来我都很佩服西方人的取自社会,回馈社会的看法。他们会把赚来的财富,回馈给社会团体。
    反而东方人就比较少有这样的想法,多数人都会把财富传给下一代。
    但最近也有几个大马富豪也响应西方人的作法,把赚来的财富回馈社会,帮助那些弱小的团体。这是令人可喜可乐的好消息。
    这可让我们的社会充满人间温情,这是很令人感动的。所以在佛法的世界我们更要响应这样取自社会,回馈社会的想法。
    让更多须要帮助的众生可以得到利益。谢谢仁波切给我们的的分享。

  18. Girlie OOI on Oct 3, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    More often than not, when we hear of people giving away their wealth, it’s almost always someone who is super rich. But not only the rich are capable of giving; you don’t have to be rich to give. It is not the amount that matters, it is the though behind it. But then of course it helps tremendously when you are rich, cause the big amount given away goes a long way to help many needy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post.

  19. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 2, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    Very interesting article! Glad to read about what have these generous people been doing. Some people just love to give and obviously it regards to people who are generous and do not just take,take and take, and I personally think that their money are well-spent, true happiness comes when you give instead of just take; whereas some just like to take and not give, the scrooges will end up living alone, all by themselves. We must help the others when we have the ability to do so, what happens if we die tomorrow? We can’t take the money with us, so what for? If we help the others, we might save their lives, and I don’t see anything wrong with that.

  20. Felix Kong on Oct 2, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    What is the next when we are rich,they are so generous and did very good example to all , giving majority of their wealth for charity and help more peoples. Wish more rich peoples also inspiring too and benefit others.

    Its wonderful that these people with all the wealth that they have they are willing to contribute back to society in ways they feel needs the most. Already achieving so much in their wealth they can give it away so easily. JK Rowling is a good example of not forgetting your roots, she never forgot how she started out and doesn’t want other to be brought up the way she did. Thank you for sharing this article Rinpoche.

  23. Lucas Roth on Oct 1, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    wow, these people have earned so much and still give so much to charity and for the less fortunate. J.K Rowling was the most amazing in my opinion. and there is one left out, Bill Gates, he gave a lot to charity too. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  24. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Oct 1, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on these inspirational articles about super rich people that donated most of their wealth for charity and social welfare. It is indeed money cannot exchange with happiness if money is not being utilized wisely to help the less fortunate ones or simply they are willing to let go their attachments. People who gives away their wealth for the sake of others will have less worries, less problems and easy going with their lives as they have developed the generosity that counters most of the worldly problems. These rich people not only know how to create much wealth, but also know how to create the cause to sustain their inner and outer happiness through the charity funds they have founded. May everyone who has been participating in any charity work or any charity fund raising will gain realization of emptiness that lead us into Enlightenment and free from samsara in many future lifetimes.

  25. Wylfred Ng on Oct 1, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing. They are really kind and generous to donate their money for charity.

    Hope that they will inspire more people to be more generous.

    Even if we are not as rich as them, we can still be generous in the other way, such as contribute our time, even a smile can be a way to make people happy too.

  26. Shelly tai on Oct 1, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post with us. Is very inspiring to see this super rich people who are so generous but generally all the super rich people they usually are very self cherishing whatever money they have they use it to indulge themselves with luxury items or some will keep enquiring more investment is very sad to see this because this group of people they do not have Dharma they do not understand the need to prepare for their future live they only enjoy their fullest in this current live I hope very in the near future with all the effort of Kecharian and Rinpoche will be able to transform their mind so that this group of people be able to help others help the Dharma to grow and ultimately help themselves .

  27. Andrew James Boon on Oct 1, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    This is indeed most inspiring… That these individuals do not hoard their wealth. They know seem to understand the fragility and mortality of life. After all, if we understood the very truth that we will undoubtedly “kick the bucket” one day… just a matter of time, why do we indeed want to keep it all. It being the material wealth we have!

    These individuals have certainly discovered that their good fortune is to be shared and that it is a privilege and a blessing to be able to give in a monetary way especially in our materialistic world! Perhaps they have the greater opportunity to give and thus receive the illusive happiness we all seek. Interesting to be able to look beyond one’s fortune and “use” it as a tool for giving rather than taking!

  28. Jim Yeh on Oct 1, 2013 at 7:39 am

    Wow! So generous of Miss Rowling, even though I have not watched or read the Harry Potter series, I admire her for helping out people who are less fortunate. Miss Rowling never forgot what it felt like to be poor and living on welfare.

    It is nice to see people who are ahead in life, helping out those who are a little behind. We must never turn our backs on people who needs help, someday, we may need help from others as well.

    Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche.

  29. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    This is very inspiring, if I have the wealth I would as well donate it to Rinpoche works and to set up an animal related institution to promote sterilization and health care for animals. Wealth can be used as the source to benefit others or the source to satisfy ones own greed and fame. What I like Ms Rowling said is “You have a moral responsibility when you’ve been given far more than you need, to do wise things with it and give intelligently.” We have to contribute back to the society so that we can ease some others people suffering. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  30. Julien Roth on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    I love people like this. They are so inspirational to everyone. They are so rich and they could do anything in the world with that money, and the donate it. So cool. I hope many people start doing this, the world needs people like this.

  31. June Tang(KHJB) on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post.This is inspiring to know that there are still have many peoples are not attached to material wealth.I agreed many people said “It is impossible for human beings to bring money along with them when they died. On the contrary, money may be the cause of the death. ” So, we should make good use of our money .I rejoice for them for practicing generosity and keep reminding us to be generous to others.

  32. Sean Wang on Sep 30, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    Thank you for sharing this article with your readers, Rinpoche. It is nice to see that people who can give, do give, to help others who need help. I wish that more people would follow suit with their wealth as some people who are wealthy choose to keep it for themselves.

    When people give, they realize that it feels good and to maintain that feeling, they continually give. It is a win win situation 

    Everyone should also remember that when you die, you become naked. You lose everything you have achieved in our your lives. Money gone. Houses gone. Nothing follows except for your karma.

  33. Irene Lim on Sep 30, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    It is so wonderful to read about these super rich people giving away their wealth to a cause. Giving creates wealth and this is the reason they are super rich in this live88 348454 for they must have been generous in their previous life time.

  34. Graceleong on Sep 30, 2013 at 5:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very positive and inspiring story of JK Rowling and all the other philantrophists.
    On the path of a Boddhisattva, giving or generosity is the first of the 6 Perfections we have to achieve. If we are well grounded in generosity, then our hearts are more available for more insight into the other aspects of Buddhism. To give will counter our miserliness. But the motivation to give must also be pure. Ultimately, generosity is about nonattachment and loving kindness.It is through giving with a kind, loving heart that we develop our capacity to let go. As we let go we become freer, lighter, and happier.
    Some may comment that the Philantrophist are so rich and hence for them to give away is easier then a person with not much physical wealth. But there again there are many who are very rich and miserly and grasp at what they have and fear it being taken away from then ; plus crave for much more.They will never be happy.
    Hence giving is very important. Small or big amounts is not the issue. Letting go will bring more joy.

  35. Choongs on Sep 30, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    It is estimated that in the USA, 20% of the population owns 90% of the wealth and 10% of the population owns 50% of the wealth.

    Mathematically, if the top 10% give away 80% of their wealth to the bottom 90% equanamiously, then wealth would have been distributed equally. Interesting.

  36. Ming HY on Sep 30, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    Wonderful to hear about all these rich people, and dispelled the myth that rich people are stingy. Infact these people have the good Karma to become so wealthy and so must have created the causes. We should also practice generosity, afterall, as so many of these people understand that they too, can not bring their wealth with them after death.

  37. Thierry on Sep 30, 2013 at 9:00 am

    This is very inspiring indeed, it almost make me want to make money, so that I can… Give it away!

    But then, we don’t need to be billionaires to be generous, we can also be generous with time, with talent, or with simply care and with love, generosity can be practiced by everyone.
    Sometimes even a phone call to a friend in need is worth more than millions.

    I had this conversation with a friend of mine, a successful businessman, a rich person.
    He said that the key to success is not hard work, nor circumstances, nor this or that, success depends upon how much GOOD WILL we have created around us.
    With good will towards your projects, you will get the external support needed for success.
    Without this good will, hard work and circumstances are useless.

    But how do you create good will did I ask?
    That is something everybody knows, business people use this for business, but everybody knows how to create good will, you don’t learn this in school. You create good will by giving it, by helping others on their respective paths, and it comes back to you.

    So, I conclude, people that have succeeded financially, that have become wealthy, they must know something about giving for sure… And the above stories do show!

  38. The Karmavore on Sep 30, 2013 at 7:57 am

    Many of the people on this list and other very wealthy people who are not on this list are criticized for the activities they engage in to create wealth. However, I personally think what finally counts is the willingness from them to donate their mass amounts of wealth to charities that help change peoples life. In the end whatever criticism they face is practically cancelled out due to their high motivation to benefit others.

  39. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Sep 30, 2013 at 1:07 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this awesome article with us…

    Before engage with Dharma i always agree to others people say “Money is not everything but without money we cant do anything”, some of them even say “Money is everything”. Most of their happiness in the beginning depends on how much wealth they have to let them and their family enjoy their life…

    But after i engage with Dharma, i only notice that even Billionaire will become bankruptcy just due to their Illness. After contemplate, anything happen is due to Karma we create and Merits that we able to collect.

    Rejoice for the peoples above that make the Perfect Choice to make them gain the true happiness hence collect Merits by this way to have a Better Future!!!

Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

EXPAND
Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    There is no one that can help us, but us. Methods are given, but whether we grasp, apply and practise it is entirely up to oneself. If we don’t change then there is no point in learning the Dharma.
    A transformed mind is our own best protection. That mind can only come from consistent practice over time.When we see results, we will be encouraged to push ourselves more to practice well.Thank you very much for sharing a good article.

    Wonderful news ……the Chinese government has introduced a plan to encourage and reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, It’s a great move that China has done in the effort to avoid runaway global warming and for health reasons. The climate campaigners has been hoping for it. New dietary guidelines by the Chinese health officials have recommend and advise individuals to limit their meat consumption. As more evidence of chronic diseases such as heart attack, strokes ,hypertension and so forth are related to meat consumption. And for most to maintain a healthy life styles. They also implement dietary guidelines encouraging the general public to consume plenty of cereals, tubers, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits as well. The Chinese government also put up billboards in attempt to reduce meat consumption by highlighting health risks associated with consuming meat. What we eat contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and every one of us is responsible. People nowadays are reducing their meat consumption and opting for vegan and plant-based protein to improve their health . Hopefully more countries will follow China reducing the meat consumption. In a way more animals could be save in the slaughter house. And for the future generations to come .
    Thank you for this wonderful news .

    Different parts of the world have each various interesting traditions and customs which individual will celebrate and follow. Religious festivals like Gadhimai festival, which is an animal sacrificial ceremony, and dog meat festival where dogs are slaughtered to celebrate the summer solstice have gathered cultural significance over the centuries. In Gadhimai festival , they believe that animal sacrifices to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai will end evil and bring prosperity. In Spain bulls festival or the Toro de la Vega, bulls are torture and kill. Same goes to the Pero Palo Festival where scared donkey being dragged unwillingly through the packed streets . Drive hunting where dolphins and whales are caught and killed for their meat. All these are some of the hidden cruelty and crime against animals in the world which many are not aware of it and do not want to know. But with social media , more and more got to know about it and are trying to end all these animals cruelty. The Indian officials are cracking down and trying to stop the transportation of animals for this festivals. It is good that the number of animals slaughtered during the Gadhimai festival has dropped sharply over the years. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year is a gruesome display of the dog meat trade. Chinese officials are doing their best and discouraging people from eating dog meat which is harmful in long term. Recent years there has been a drop in the consumption of dog meat in the China. Many people are aware of the abuses and torture of those poor dogs before been kill as meat. Looking at those pictures in the articles, tells a thousand words of all the suffering of these animals in the moment before death.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this sharing raising awareness of animals been abuse , torture and so forth.

    For centuries, humans have been gazed at galaxies and peered deep inside atoms for more answers to the space. No one knows for sure what it is up there. Scientist, astronomers and so forth are busy scanning the skies for more discoveries and seeking answers to the mysteries of space. World scientists are doing experiments in an effort to gain insight of it. After years of exploration , they are still looking for more discoveries. Interesting discoveries……..of the dark energy, eagle nebula , galaxy , UFO and more of what is existing beyond our imagination.

    Peter Byrne is an absolute legend , been an icon, in search for Bigfoot, yeti and Sasquatch or abominable snowmen of the Himalaya. He was a real icon questing for the truth about the Yeti or snowmen. Since his much younger years , he was fascinated in the unknown and the mysterious that turned hunting as a hobby. In one of his hunting trip , he came across a tiger suffering that changed his whole life. From that time he stopped the cruel act of killing animals , ending his 16 years of hunting and founded a non-profit organization called the International Wildlife Conservation Society. He has lived a long and dedicated life in the conservations of animals and in the pursuit of searching for Sasquatch, Yeti and so forth. For decades, he search for Bigfoot, Yeti in the Himalayan has become more of a hobby for him. He has written multiple books on Bigfoot and other aspects of his life.

    This article really inspired me, every year we live is formative year for us as it affects our future life, so we should really let go those bad influence from our parents. What Rinpoche wrote is so true, most of us are either positive or negative after getting influenced by our parents.

    Dharma will make us face ourselves, acknowledge our weak and negative aspects of character and will then guide us to move forward in a positively transformative direction.Thank you very much for sharing this good article with us.

    Ratsag Monastery is a popular pilgrimage site located in the Yab Valley in Tolung near to Lhasa, Tibet. Its a beautiful place located with interesting history behind it. It’s the statue of Vajra Yogini that attracted many pilgrims there. This monastery been built to purify the heavy negative karma associated with Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa (1016-1128 CE) by the locals who is well known for introducing the Vajrabhairava-Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet.
    Interesting read of Vajra Yogini scared statues and about the history of the monastery. May the original statue of Vajra Yogini will be returned to Ratsag Monastery one day.
    I did made a trip last May with friends and saw those beautiful scared statues at the monastery. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.
    Thank you Pastor David for this interesting post with the history of the Sacred Vajrayogini Statue been explained.

    Shailendra Dynasty was the name of an influential Indonesian dynasty that emerged in 8th-century Java. Shailendras were active influencer of Mahayana Buddhism whose reign signified a cultural renaissance in the region. The glorious Buddhist monuments was then built across the fertile volcanic plain named as Kedu Plain .
    The most incredible of them all was the massive stupa of Borobudur which is a very popular pilgrimage site for locals, tourist and Buddhist practitioners. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wow ….incredible it took more than 50 years to complete this architectural monument . Read and heard about this amazing monuments and all the beautiful stone inscriptions there. I have not been there before but wish to in the near future. Interesting read of all about this historical information on the Shailendra Dynasty.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this 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.

  • 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
