Dear all,

I recently received a wonderful e-mail update from one of my students in Indonesia, Valentina Suhendra.

Valentina is an independent lady, who serves as a director in one of the Big 4 accounting firms in Jakarta. At a glance, Valentina may appear like any other ordinary career woman, but apart from her full-time job, she also heads the Indonesian branch of Kechara, single-handedly.

I rejoice for all of her activity updates for October and November. She continuously practices compassion through her actions and consistently helps the under-privileged in Indonesia. I really appreciate students who strive to change and practice the Dharma!

I thought that I should share with you what Valentina has been up to for the last 2 months, I am glad many people under her care are getting a better quality of life due to her tirelessly working to serve others.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


Kechara Indonesia – October to November 2013

The month of October and November 2013 proved to be a busy month for us. Our members have been executing many activities that are of benefit for others and at the same time, we were able to have fun. In addition to our weekly food distribution, we have executed Mentally Challenged Project, participated in the historic Mandiri Jakarta Marathon, helped a sick child, and provide ad hoc sponsorship to 10 students, and so forth. It has been a rewarding period for us.

 

Weekly food distribution

In addition to the usual weekly distribution of food packages, we received a donation of 1,800 packages of SMAX snack from Mr. Potato to complement our distribution. Our clients were happy. We have been building good relationship with our clients through consistent food weekly food distribution. The month of November 2013 marked our 3rd year food distribution. We started in early November 2010 with only 18 food packages. It is amazing how a small act of good will can develop into something like what we are today.

 

Mandiri Jakarta Marathon

Six of Kechara Indonesia members were joining Mandiri Jakarta marathon. At first, we were doing this activity for fun since many of us like to do sport related activities. However, one week before the event, a group of runner called Team Chubby coordinated by Mr. Holip Soekawan decided to linked their group performance in the marathon to our food packages donation. That was very kind for them. They called their program LUNAS (Lari Untuk Nasi Bungkus). Inspired by Team Chubby, some of our friends started to bet on Kechara Indonesia team’s performance too in this marathon. Luckily, we were all safe and sound. I think we have proven time and again in the past three years that charity can be fun too.

 

Ad hoc student sponsorship

Kechara Indonesia is conducting a join CSR again with KPMG Indonesia. This time, KPMG decided to provide ad hoc sponsorship to 10 students from less fortunage economic background. We helped to shortlist the students from among our clients and some of the school with whom we have provided student sponsorship in the past. We wish these students success in their future endeavors.

 

Vision for the future project part 3

As a continuity of the previous Vision for the Future Project, together with KPMG, we sponsored 11 more glasses to our clients who did not get the correct lenses or due to administrative issues did not get the glasses that we promised. Thus, we brought them to optician, and ordered new glasses for them. It is important for us to fulfil our promise.

 

Mentally Challenged Project

Kechara Indonesia provided dry food donation and wheel chair to Yayasan Bhakti Luhur. This NGO is run by a group of Chatolic nun and nurses. They helped mentally and physically challenged individuals who were entrusted by their family to them. In this project, we donated five customized wheel chairs, milk, sugar, and rice in addition to 100 lunch box set and breads.

 

Helping sick children

In November, Kechara Indonesia team received a plea for help from our expatriate friend. He saw two sick children in an area near Atma Jaya University. He wanted to help, but have communication problems. Thus, Kechara Indonesia team checked on the children and the family and brought them to hospital. The younger of the two need to be hospitalized since she was very weak (with parental consent). We have received the news that the children are well again, and the younger one has been discharged from hospital.

As usual, thank you to all sponsors who have been supporting us, since without you, we will not be able to execute our activities.

Kechara Indonesia team


Aktivitas Kechara Indonesia bulan Oktober – November 2013

Bulan Oktober dan November 2013 adalah bulan yang sibuk bagi kami. Anggota kami telah melaksanakan berbagai aktivitas untuk memberi manfaat bagi orang lain dan pada saat yang sama, kami juga menikmatinya. Di samping kegiatan distribusi makanan mingguan, kami mengeksekusi Mentally Challenged Project, berpartisi pasi dalam Mandiri Jakarta Marathon yang bersejarah, menolong seorang anak yang sakit, dan memberikan pendanaan ad-hoc kepada 10 siswa, dan seterusnya. Ini adalah periode yang memuaskan bagi kami.

 

Pembagian makanan mingguan

Di samping membagikan nasi bungkus, kami menerima sumbangan 1,800 snack SMAX dari Mr. Potato untuk melengkapi distribusi kami. Klien kami senang. Kami juga telah membangun hubungan yang baik dengan klien kami melalui kegiatan pembagian makanan mingguan yang konsisten. Bulan November 2013 menandakan 3 tahun kami menjalankan kegiatan pembagian makanan. Kami memulai aktivitas ini pada bulan November 2010 dengan hanya 18 nasi bungkus. Benar-benar luar biasa bagaimana niat baik kecil bisa menjadi seperti sekarang.

 

Mandiri Jakarta Marathon

Enam dari anggota Kechara Indonesia berpartisipasi dalam kegiatan Mandiri Jakarta Marathon. Pada awalnya, kami melakukan aktivitas ini untuk bersenang-senang karena banyak dari kami yang suka melakukan kegiatan olahraga. Akan tetapi, satu minggu sebelum acara ini, sekelompok pelari yang menamakan diri mereka Team Chubby yang dikoordinasi oleh Bpk. Holip Soekawan memutuskan untuk menghubungkan kinerja mereka dengan sumbangan nasi bungkus. Mereka benar-benar sangat baik. Mereka menamakan program ini LUNAS (Lari Untuk Nasi Bungkus). Terinspirasi oleh Team Chubby, beberapa sahabat kami juga mulai bertaruh atas kinerja Tim Kechara Indonesia. Untungnya kami semua selamat. Kami telah membuktikan berulang kali dalam tiga tahun terakhir bahwa kegiatan amal juga bisa menyenangkan.

 

Kegiatan Pendanaan Siswa/i Ad Hoc

Kechara Indonesia kembali mengadakan join CSR dengan KPMG Indonesia. Kali ini, KPMG memutuskan untuk memberikan pendanaan ad hoc kepada 10 siswa/i yang berasal dari keluarga kurang mampu. Kami membantu seleksi siswa/i dari antara klien kami dan dari beberapa sekolah dimana kami telah melakukan pendanaan siswa sebelumnya. Kami berharap para siswa/i ini sukses dan memiliki masa depan yang baik.

 

Proyek Vision for the Future Bagian 3

Sebagai kelanjutan dari proyek Vision for the Future terdahulu, bersama dengan KPMG, kami mendanai 11 kacamata bagi klien kami yang tidak mendapatkan lensa yang benar atau karena masalah administratif tidak mendapatkan kaca-mata yang dijanjikan. Karena itu, kami membawa mereka ke optik dan memesan kaca-mata baru untuk mereka. Penting bagi kami untuk memenuhi janji.

 

Mentally Challenged Project

Kechara Indonesia menyumbangkan bahan makanan kering dan kursi roda kepada Yayasan Bhakti Luhur. Ini adalah yayasan yang dijalankan oleh sekelompok biarawati dan suster. Mereka membantu individu yang memiliki keterbatasan fisik/ mental. Dalam proyek ini, kami menyumbangkan lima kursi roda khusus, susu, gula, dan beras di samping 100 kotak makan siang dan roti.

 

Menolong anak-anak sakit

Pada bulan November, Kechara Indonesia menerima permohonan bantuan dari teman kami yang pekerja asing. Dia melihat dua anak sakit di daerah dekat universitas Atma Jaya. Dia ingin membantu, tetapi ada masalah komunikasi. Karena itu, tim Kechara Indonesia mengunjungi anak-anak ini dan keluarganya dan membawa mereka ke rumah sakit. Anak yang lebih kecil harus dirawat inap karena dia sangat lemah (dengan ijin wali). Kami telah menerima berita bahwa anak ini telah sembuh dan keluar dari rumah sakit.

Seperti biasa, terima kasih karena telah mendukung kami, karena tanpa kalian, kami tidak akan dapat mengeksekusi aktivitas kami.

Tim Kechara Indonesia

    Valentina is flying the flag of Kechara all by herself in Indonesia and she is doing a remarkable job of sharing the Kechara spirit with others in Indonesia.

  3. Edward ooi on Jan 8, 2014 at 11:25 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I’m really surprised that Indonesia also started something like KSK (Kechara Soup Kitchen)and I’m also very happy for the Kechara Indonesia members. Because of them, the poor people can suffer less. I wish more people will volunteer at Kechara Indonesia and more people will find jobs.

    Valentina is one of the very inspiring person in Kechara, she does not play mind game, she do everything in Indonesia on her own, same as other human being, she has her own problems, her ups and downs moment, but she does not give up just because of the challenges she’s facing, she walk through it one by one and doing her Dharma work consistently in Indonesia alone.

    With the distance she has with Rinpoche, she does not see Rinpoche often or to receive teaching from him much, but with her faith she has to Rinpoche and the Dharma, she do more and more to benefit the local citizen, started with giving food to the homeless until now getting sponsor for the unfortunate kids so they can have the chance to go school.

    Thank you Valentina for your hard work, as for now many people in your country has been benefited.

    Valentina is showing that with strong determination and skillful means, one can combine work and dharma successfully. Over the years, i have seen Valentina at various Kechara events over the years. Little did i expect her to bring Kechara to such a great height in Indonesia.

    Valentina, may your actions, efforts and results inspire more people to come forth and join us in the quest to relieve the sufferings of the under-privileged across the globe.

  9. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Dec 22, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    I sincerely rejoice for the people in Indonesia to be able to receive helps from kind Valentina Suhendra who has tirelessly carry out one of Rinpoche’s vision, to serve others. This can and will be very much a motivation to everyone who wishes to help and serve others. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news.

  10. Low Khjb on Dec 21, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.For the Kechara Indonesia team , thank you very much for you effort to spread Dharma through your well organize events.It really shows how united your team there in Indonesia.

  11. Darren Kechara on Dec 21, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    Very nice of Kechara Indonesia with all the on going activities to benefit the poor. Thanks to Valentina for all the hard work. 🙂

  12. Ck siah on Dec 21, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    谢谢仁波切分享。感恩印尼的师姐在印尼创办克切拉慈善中心,功德无量。 佛法是无国界,无种族,无分宗教信仰。只要您有困难。佛法就要有大公无私和要存有慈悲心为苦难者救苦救难,给予佛法加持和开示, 帮他们渡过各种难关。祈愿克切拉佛教团体可以遍布全世界以便弘扬佛法,利益众生。

  13. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 21, 2013 at 12:28 am

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, it’s great to know about the activities that are going in Kechara @ Indonesia. What they are doing is great! You gain TRUE happiness when you help others, the feeling of happiness that builds on materialism does not last long, cause nothing is permanent, people grow old and people die.

  14. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Dec 20, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Thank you for Rinpoche’s sharing . Kechara Indonesian really do a great job in applying Rinpoche’s kechara vision..take care for people in need..we need to put in this “care” to people around us regardless how busy our secular life.

  15. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Dec 19, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Valentina Suhendra has proven to us that although she is very busy as a director in one of the big 4 accounting firms in Jakarta, yet she is actively leading Kechara Indonesia in many Dharma works that benefit many people in Indonesia. She embodies the quality of selflessness and compassion towards the less fortunate people, sets a good example for us to follow and inspire many to do more Dharma works. Valentina Suhendra, you are our inspiration!

  16. Wylfred Ng on Dec 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    WOW!!!! Such a wonderful job by Kechara Indonesia.

    Valentina is a very lovely women who do so much think to help the others.

    And thanks to Rinpoche too for creating Kechara Organisation to spread dharma and love to every corner of the world.

    爱和关怀,跨越宗教、文化背景和种族。美好的社会肯定我们自己做起,今天就告诉我自己,你希望世界是怎样一个样子,就从自己开始去完成那个心愿和梦想。克切拉的送饭行动,从来都不仅限于肚子里的温饱,里面包含了对别人的关怀和爱。

    看见克切拉或其他慈善机构的送饭行动,有不少人或许会出现这样的疑问:送饭给无家可归的人会不会“助长”许多人依赖成性?事实上,无家可归的背人后都有自己的故事,大概没有人会因为有慈善机构送饭就选择流落街头。如果你曾经接触他们,就会了解到,他们希望得到的并不是一包/一盒饭,他们更需要有尊严的生活,自力更生。

    从印尼香积厨分会或马来西亚克切拉香积厨策划的活动,你就可以了解到,送饭只是一个开始,我们真正要做的是让他们有独立生活的能力。提供教育基金就是其中一个,从根本上解决贫穷问题的方法之一。我们相信有了足够的教育,许多人未来就有能力找到工作,养活自己和家人,如此一来,社会的贫穷问题就能更容易地解决。

    给需要的人伸出我们的援手,你改变的不仅是一个人的生命还可能是他一家人的命运。

  18. KH Ng on Dec 18, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    “Compassion knows Barrier”. What a motto. Valentina is very inspiring and reading this blog puts me to shame. Her compassion, steadfastness, joyous effort and humanitarianism is truly a shining example of what Dharma practice is all about. I rejoice for her and her team in Indonesia.

    Perhaps we in Malaysia should make an effort to visit Jakarta to offer our support some times soon.

  19. Julien Roth on Dec 18, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    Its so nice to hear that Kechara is spreading all over the world helping more and more people by the day. I hope that this spreads and more people are touched by the Dharma. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche, this post made me smile 🙂

  20. Lucas Roth on Dec 18, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    wow, i never knew that this existed, it is amazing and i am so happy to hear that these people there in Indonesia are helping so many people. i love to hear this, that people are helped by good people, how nice. thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  21. Tong sun sun on Dec 17, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    Velentina 真是了不起,除了依止上师,还是个女强人,平时除了忙于自己的事业,还热心从事慈善事业。出钱出力身体力行,真是难得一见。在她的照顾和努力下很多人都得到了照顾,这就是上师最想和最希望的。我在这里衷心随喜Valentina 的善行。

  22. sarahyap on Dec 17, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Wonderful update from Valentina! Thank you very much for sharing this with us!

    It’s amazing what one person with a lot of compassion and care towards others can achieve. I am so touched and amazed by what Valentina has done in Kechara Indonesia and how many lives she has touched and helped along the way.

    Thank you Rinpochela, it is only through Rinpoche that works like these manifest in Indonesia, I can see why Valentina has always showed great appreciation and love for Rinpoche because Rinpoche has taught and helped her make her life meaningful.

  23. Shelly tai on Dec 17, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Rejoice for Valentina! Is a wonderful to know that our guru teaching has inspiring so many people to do good to serve for others. Is a very fortunate thing to do if we can give no matters financially or physically because we do not waste our human life just indulging ourselves instead of help others. Thank you Rinpoche for continually teaching us and inspiring us.

    Valentina Suhendra is a very kind and hard working Indonesian lady. She single- handedly set up a Kechara branch in Jakarta,Indonesia to help the under priviledge and through her kindness and generosity, many sick and poor children have benefited. Thank you Valentina, you really have a heart of gold! Rejoice!!

  25. May Ong on Dec 17, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    Kechara Indonesia is lead by Valentina who is a single-minded brilliant, hard working lady from Jakarta, Indonesia. She lead her team to participate in various types of activities in Jakarta on the consistent monthly basis. She is someone who embodies the teaching of Buddhist dharma and HE Tsem Rinpoche’s work. A true activist of peace and compassion.

    感恩仁波切的开示与教诲

    在仁波切的慈爱与加持下,我们学习佛法并参与佛法工作,并将佛法这伟大的古老教育实践与落实在我们的生活当中

    依循这仁波切的教诲,尊贵的仁波切给予我们最纯真的传承,教育,让我们开始放下了我执,让我们开始学习转化我们的心识,让我们从佛法教育里了解人生

    从前我们只为自己想,从而变得更自私,我们总捉住我们自以为是的幸福与快乐,结果换来的是遍体鳞伤,倘若我们这一辈子不是大富大贵,我们更怨天怨地地,并造下更多不可磨灭的恶业,并以为这样可以换取大富大贵与幸福快乐

    在依循着仁波切给予的教诲与开示,我们发现原来不是这样的,我们如果永远只为自己想,我们是不会快乐的,正真的快乐来自与菩提心与空性,倘若我们抱着利益一切有情众生的发心,实践在我们的生活中,我们帮助有需要的人,给予他们需要的,当他们脸上挂上一抹微笑时,这才是真正的幸福,当我们在利益他人的过程,我们学习面对问题,我们学习展现我们内心的慈爱,我们学习到如何的谦卑与恭敬在任何人的面前,我们不因为他人比我们生活差而给予羞怒,慢慢的,我们改变了我们自己原来的生活习惯与恶习气,我们的思维开始有了新的见解,从而我们开始散发出无数的正念正能量,这正念与正能量将吸引与开始感染我们生活中四周围的全部人与一切有情众生,因为我们改变而也改变了我们许多的我们以为的敌人与朋友,他们开始也给予我们微笑与正能量,我们的生活也因此而改善,让我们更贴近佛法,得到内心富饶的财富,而此时幸福是真的

    感恩仁波切在您的慈爱与加持下,我们能在克切拉里,可以有更多的善缘得以参与佛法,并集众人的力量,帮助更多的人,倘若我们自己一个人的佛法事业,我们能提供的帮助与支援不多,然而在这里我们因为克切拉这佛法团体及您的慈爱与加持下,与您身体力行的给予我们鼓励与帮助下,我们能有更大的力量来帮助一切有情众生,不分宗教,不分性别,不分国界地,一直展伸出去,无尽的爱,利益一切有情众生

    感恩您教导我们寻找回我们自己的爱心,并有能力与机会分享出去

    感恩仁波切您,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    Sarnath is considered a sacred place to the Buddhists for being the place where Gautama Buddha first taught seven weeks after achieving enlightenment in the 6th century BC. This first teaching is known in Sanskrit as Dharmacakrapravartana Sutra, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Sutra. The main topic is the Four Noble Truth, the Eight-Fold Path and teachings associated with it.

    After Buddha gave his sermon at the Deer park in Sarnath, his five former companions of his earlier ascetic days were liberated upon hearing the teachings and as a result, they became arhats. That was to be the beginning of the Sangha, the community of the enlightened ones.

    In the past, people lived for an immensely long time — as long as 80,000 years, endowed with great beauty, wealth, pleasure, and strength. Over the cause of time, due to the negative actions performed, human’s lifespan gradually shortened to what we are now. Human beauty, wealth, pleasure, and strength also decrease proportionately. It is said in the future, as morality continues to degenerate, human life will continue to shorten to the point where the normal lifespan will be just 10 years, with people reaching sexual maturity at five.

    Ultimately, the condition will become worse that the human beings will hunt each other with swords. A few people, however, will take shelter in the wilderness to escape the carnage. And when the slaughter is over, they will come out of hiding and resolve to take up a life of skillful and virtuous action again. With the recovery of virtue, the human life span will gradually increase again until it reaches a very long time (listed as 80,000 years), with people attaining sexual maturity at 500.

    Geshe Ngawang Wangyal (1901 – 1983) was the first lama to play a pivotal role in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. He was also the one who brought His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the United States. Geshe Ngawang Wangyal was a Kalmyk born in Russia, he was ordained at the age of 6 due to his inclination in Buddhism. In order to support his monastic study in Drepung monastery in Tibet, Geshe Wangyal was working for the westerners as an interpreter, guide and assistant. In the end, he successfully completed his study and obtained his Geshe qualification. Geshe Ngawang Wangyal migrated to the US in 1955, his Dharma activities started to flourish and he had produced some very learned western students.

    Read more to learn about the great deeds of Geshe Ngawang Wangyal.

    Interesting read so so…….Tsem Rinpoche ‘s previous reincarnation was Kentrul Thubten Lamseng. Kentrul Rinpoche Thubten Lamsang was one of the most important disciples of Kyabje Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. Reincarnation do exists as confirmed in many cases . Both Kentrul Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have many similarities in so many ways. As such Guru Devotion, spreading Dharma , building of Kechara Forest Retreat , building of Big statues and so forth to benefit more people. Following Guru’s advice coming to Malaysia to a place unheard of to spread Buddhism teachings . We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia and able to learn Dharma. A beautiful write up of a Great Lama where many of us will benefit reading it.
    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this information.

    Sakya tradition have been long relyed on Dorje Shugden since the 17 centuries with the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen who enthroned and worshipped Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. Its has proven that Gelugpas are not the only sect who practice Dorje Shugden. They are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They are have built chapels , composed prayers and pujas to him and even propagated Dorje Shugden practice . They cannot be wrong after all. Dorje Shugden is definitely not evil or spirits , those High Lamas will have the clairvoyance to see the very true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is as Avalokiteshvara, a fully enlightened being which is confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen. The 31st Sakya Trizin who composed the Dorje Shugden kangsol text is still widely used to this day.
    Interesting read which I do enjoyed reading from time to time to understand more so as to increase my knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting write up.

    Thai King, Such A Great Monarch!

    I have admired this great Monarch, leader and Dharmaraja since I first read of him many years back. I do not admire him in a political capacity. I am not into politics nor get involved. My post here on him is not as a political figure. But my admiration for him is as a great human being, a kind hearted person and someone who works for others. My praise of him is as a great human being. He is a great hero for me. I admire people who use their lives for others.

    Vajra Yogini Daju or self initiation

    Self initiation purifies ones vows taken before, mends them, re affirms them, and powerful to purify many downfalls in general that prevent attainments from one’s practice. Also you may retake your mantra count commitment if it was broken.

    You plant the 4 types of initiations into one’s mindstream. It is necessary for the Lama also to do daju prior to conferring Vajra Yogini’s initiation to others.

    It is a powerful tantric practice to restore one’s practice from time to time to assure success in one’s sadhanas.

    Baha’i faith started in Iran in the early 1800s and ended up with its spiritual locus, by accident of empire in modern Israel. It is a faith that embraces all major religions, positing that God enlightened humankind over the ages by sending prophets – Abraham, Zoroaster, Krishna, the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. As noncontroversial as that may seem, it hasn’t prevented Baha’is from being persecuted, mostly in Iran, where they are regarded as apostates. The problem is with the idea that the Creator sent a messenger after Muhammad.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

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