Kechara in Malacca

Nov 7, 2013 | Views: 990

 

 

On 1st October 2013, Kechara opened its doors for clients in Dataran Pahlawan Megamall’s food court known as ‘Food Paradise’!

Dataran Pahlawan is a shopping mall located at the heart of historical Malacca. If you were to go to the 3rd floor of Dataran Pahlawan (one floor below the cineplex), you’ll be greeted by a large floor opening offering different types of food.

The decor of Food Paradise is reminiscent of Jonker Street, a popular heritage area of Malacca. To the right of the food court is Kechara’s corner that is next to a water feature. 

At Food Paradise, Kechara offers a vegetarian mixed rice stall, books and gifts corner and a cozy reading lounge area. How wonderful! 

On the first day, many customers came to have lunch at our vegetarian mixed rice stall. Currently, there are 23 dishes available:

Appetizers menu:

  • Crispy Vegetable Prawn
  • Crispy Mock Duck
  • Cheese Sausages
  • Veggie Spring Rolls
  • Chicken Satay
  • Veg. Drumstick
  • Mock Belly Pork
  • BBQ Char Siew
  • Maki Roll
  • Veg. Curry Samosa

 

Main Dishes:

  • Cod Fish Fillet with Lady Finger Assam Sauce
  • Stir-fried Prawn with Black Fungus & Lotus
  • Curry Lamb with Long Bean & Potato
  • Veg Meat with Broccoli
  • Sweet & Sour Pork
  • Loh Han Chye
  • Abalone Mushroom with Honey Cream
  • Braised Beancurd with Minced Chicken
  • Assorted Stir-fried Green Vegetables
  • Eggplant with Minced Pork
  • Veg. Bee Hoon
  • Veg. Fried Rice
  • Steamed Rice
  • Different types of vegetable soups (changes daily)

We hope to bring to Malacca the Kechara experience of serenity, warmth and mindfulness! Do drop by if you’re in the area!

    hello, today i was going to food paradise to check out your place kechara. but the food court was closed and no sign where kechara is. have you moved location or closed down permanent? thanks for your help

    • Pastor Shin Tan on May 8, 2017 at 2:11 pm

      Dear Lars Lindbeck,

      I’m sorry to inform you that we no longer operate the lounge at the food court in Dataran Pahlawan. Are you a tourist in Melaka and how long will you be staying there?

      In 2 days (Wednesday 10th May) Buddhists around the world celebrate one of the most important days, Wesak Day, which commemorates the three most significant events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni – the birth of Prince Siddartha Gautama, his Enlightenment and therefore becoming Buddha Shakyamuni, and the occasion of his parinirvana. We will be celebrating this auspicious event at Kechara Forest Retreat. It is a public holiday in Malaysia.

      Kechara Forest Retreat is 1 hour away from Kuala Lumpur, and 3 hours away from Melaka. If you would like to visit us, this is the best place to experience what Kechara is all about and this is the best time to visit as we have activities from 8am to 9pm. You can read more about the event here: http://www.facebook.com/events/1894306447508574/ and here: http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/events/domore-and-multiply-your-merits-this-wesak-day/

      You can watch a short video about Kechara Forest Retreat here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwDeYR17EXI

      As for travel arrangements, travel by bus is the most economical to go around.

      You can check the bus schedule from Melaka Sentral to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS, or Southern Integrated Terminal in Kuala Lumpur). Journey from Melaka to TBS will take around 2 hours 15 minutes.
      Bus schedule from Melaka Sentral to TBS: http://www.easybook.com/en-my/bus/booking/malacca-to-tbsterminalbersepaduselatan

      From Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS), there are a few bus operators that bring you to Bentong in a short 1 – 1 hour 20 minute journey

    The kechara vegeterian food stall still available at pahlawan shopping mall in melaka? I went there but cant find the stall….only lounge

  3. Rena Wong on Dec 12, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    Congratulations to Kechara on the opening of a new outlet in Malacca. Situated across Hatten Hotel and near Mahkota Parade makes it easily accessible to the locals and tourists.

    The set-up is simple and cosy giving customers a conducive environment to enjoy their food. There are so many vegetarian dishes that customers will be spoilt for choice.

    Love the book corner which promotes reading at the same time for people to get to know Buddhism and Rinpoche’s books. The rattan chairs are relaxing and people can sit to enjoy reading a book. There are also Tibetan gift items and pendants available for sale. Customers can also use the computers set-up .

    This Onestop well-planned and well-equipped outlet will bring benefit to many people and promote Kechara. People will benefit from healthy eating and awareness about Dharma & Rinpoche’s blog.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    With folded hands

    Wow! The place looks really good! Its already making me hungry. I hope I get the chance to visit Kechara Food Paradise one of these days. I love the range of vegetarian food that is offered. Thank you Rinpoche for always compassionately continuing to promote vegetarianism to the public. I have seen more and more people becoming vegetarian these days. May less animals suffer and die for our taste buds.

  5. Nancy Loo on Dec 2, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    With the opening of Kechara Food Paradise in Melaka will definitely create a good cause for the people in Melaka and the tourists to plant seeds in Dharma and to know more about Kechara’s activities.

    You can even have a fulfilling meal with all the varities vegetarian dishes being served !! May Kechara Food Paradise be able to spread it’s wings to other regions of the country.

  6. Edward Ooi on Nov 21, 2013 at 12:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I love the new Kechara restaurant’s design very much. When I look at the food menu for the Kechara restaurant, my saliva was about to drip from my mouth. It is like I could almost taste the food! The restaurant is really big and I wish that one day I will have the chance to visit the restaurant.

  7. Adrian Cho on Nov 19, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    Wow…. This is fantastic and wonderful place of food paradise. It is so beautiful decor and looks comfortable. Definitely will go visit this place one day and try the vegetarian foods.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the nice pictures to us.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Nov 19, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    The owners of the Hatten group are great supporters, friends and faithful students of Rinpoche. Dharma has always been in their blood. Even in Dharma, everyone has “food” in their thoughts, especially clean healthy food like “Vegetarian”! Rinpoche always have a true sense of compassion for food concern for practioners and always want them to have the best! Such food sold by Kechara are nice and healthy which you can eat to your hearts concerned, yet remain charitably healthy for a good cause! Have a hearty meal at Kechara!

  9. Ruby Khong on Nov 18, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    I am so happy that Kechara is going places and has expanded to Melaka. To all those who were involved in setting this up (Sharon Tan, JP Thong, Su Ming and many more), Congratulations and well done! I try avoid looking at the photos of the freshly cooked food because it makes me hungry and wishing so much that I live in Melaka!!

  10. wansan on Nov 18, 2013 at 12:08 am

    The place looks so beautiful and modern. Now the Malaccans have the opportunity to get in touch with the Dharma and learn the Dharma. Besides that, they also can have their delicious vegetarian meal in this cozy setting.

  11. Girlie OOI on Nov 17, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    I have not visited Melaka for some years now. Can’t quite remember when was the last time I visited.

    I will make sure this is THE place to be when I next visit Melaka.

    What a fantastic idea to have the food court in such a different environment.

  12. Adrian Chow on Nov 17, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    This is a good news for Malaccans. Kechara is spreading every where in the corner of Malaysia and hopefully in the near future to Asia and the world. Thank you

  13. freon on Nov 16, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    When I back to Malacca, I purposely make a visit to Kechara Malacca. The place is full of nostalgia. The vegetarian dishes is delicious and nutritious too.
    In Malacca this can be said first most delicious vegetarian dishes that Malaccan can enjoyed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing Kechara to Malacca.

  14. Grace Leu on Nov 15, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    The design of Kechara Melaka look very nostalgic, it remind me the old days in kampung life, the sweet and friendly memorable old days. The place is well organised and a lot of choice of vegetarian foods, may more and more people connect with Kechara, connect with Rinpoche and received his valuable teaching.

  15. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 13, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    The place is spacious, simple and seemed to be a comfortable place to hang out with books and coffee. The vegetarian food selection is indeed mouth watering (yes, I’m hungry right now! hehe) This is a remarkable place to visit when you are in Melacca! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news to everyone and a big thank you for the people who put in lots of efforts and hard work in manifesting this in Melacca!! Rejoice!

  16. Beatrix Ooi on Nov 13, 2013 at 2:59 am

    Wow! Great to know that Kechara has a vegetarian restaurant in the shopping centre itself. The foods sure look delicious! I definitely will ask my parents to go there for lunch when we have the chance to travel to Melaka again. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  17. Wah Ying on Nov 12, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    Malaysians love food. To meet Dharma, Rinpoche and Kechara through food, is a good idea indeed.

    From photos one might mistaken this is an outdoor food court…which actually is an indoor and air conditioning food court with computer and books corner! And after lunch/dinner, do some shopping, it could re-define the meaning of food court in Malaysia, hehe.

    I would like to visit and dine in next time when I visit to Malacca…and introduce to my friends. 🙂

  18. Jutika lam on Nov 12, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It’s great to see how Kechara is gradually expanding not only in KL but also places such as Malacca.

    I absolutely love the idea and layout of the place and it’s great to know that the locals there in Malacca as well as the tourists can now enjoy tasty and yummy vegetarian food!

    Vegetarian food is great because it suits everybody regardless of beliefs, religion and etc.

    May the Kechara Food Stall be a great success!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

  19. David Lai on Nov 12, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    The Hatten Group has been great sponsors and patrons of Kechara Forest Retreat. They have been loyal and supportive of everything that Tsem Rinpoche does. They are only interested in spreading the Dharma in whatever way they can. It is lovely that they do this as it will definitely help to spread Kechara’s name in Malacca. It would be great to take a long the next time I am in Malacca.

  20. HelenaC on Nov 12, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Wow…looks so cozy the place for dining and reading. Beautiful set up!! More people will benefit event just have lunch or dinner hehehe 🙂

  21. sarahyap on Nov 11, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    Wow! This is amazing! The place is designed so beautifully and not to mention they serve wonderful Vegetarian food! This is a must visit place whenever I go down to Malacca!

  22. Alan Chan (KHJB) on Nov 11, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Wow ! This is a great news for all kecharian and Melaka peoples . It is very comform place to have lunch in kechara food paradise and can spread dharma at the same . Nice ! Thank you Rinpoche Sharing !

  23. Choi Sheem on Nov 11, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    This is wonderful news. Kechara is now in the historic city of Malacca. I like the concept of having street food in the cool comfort inside a shopping mall. And there is even such a big variety of vegetarian dishes to choose from. After satisfying our hunger, we can browse through some of the books in the comfortable space provided. What more, there is also the gift shop to get some souvenirs for friends back home. As Malacca is a well known tourist destination, I am sure many visitors would get to know of Kechara and also savor the delicious vegetarian food.

  24. June Tang(KHJB) on Nov 11, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news. Very happy to see Kechara has expanded to Melaka. The place looks comfortable and cosy, the dishes also looks very yummy ! Definitely will arrange time to visit here!!!

  25. Lucas Roth on Nov 11, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    this is so cool, all that food looks so good and it will help people get some knowledge of kechara. i hope this will spread the dharma very well in Malacca. the place looks nice as well. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  26. Ck siah on Nov 11, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    现在,在马六甲里偶尔会看到克切拉佛法的痕迹。如在酒店,佛庙,商业广场等等。很法喜的仁波切传法可在马六甲出现。也很感恩Datu Wira Eric Tan 帮忙克切拉佛教在马六甲弘扬佛法。这是很好的传法开始,只要大家的同心协力,目标一致,仁波切的弘扬佛法宏源很快实现。

  27. Ong Moh Mei on Nov 11, 2013 at 2:11 am

    This is fantastic opening for Kechara. The whole setup is very well though out and planned. This place promotes so many good lifestyle infused with dharma – vegetarianism, reading, internet.

    We all have to eat so why not have a tasty affordable easily available vegetarian meal and you can practice compassion towards animals at the same time.

    Chill out and relax while waiting for someone or just passing time by picking up a book and read. Reading is a culture that is losing its hold on the younger generation. What better than to promote the reading of dharma books which contents serve to bring peace and calm to our mind.

    We live in a world so reliant on internet these days. Unfortunately a lot of the time is also spent on the internet on negative or senseless activities. Here we can promote Rinpoche’s blog and direct people to a site where they can access a variety of topic of interest but with positive influence.

    We should truly rejoice because this is not just a mere food stall that serves food, this is a place of outreach where the seeds of dharma get planted in many mind stream.

  28. Boon on Nov 10, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    It Is happy to see Kechara Food Paradise open in Melaka. Hopefully it ables to encourage more people to eat vegetarian meanwhile attract them to the dharma.

  29. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Nov 10, 2013 at 10:51 am

    Congratulations to Kechara Food Paradise. May more people in Malacca receiving more Dharma and be blessed through the spiritual practice. Thank you Rinpoche for your blessings to the people in Malacca.

  30. AdelineTan on Nov 10, 2013 at 12:14 am

    Congratulation to the opening of of the Kechara Food Paradise in Melaka. One not only can get a variety of delicious dishes at the stalls but also can relax and enjoy a cup of tea in a comfortable chilled area and also a cozy book corner for people who love reading dharma books and there are computers for free browsing too. I am sure a lot of people will find this is a interesting place to hang out. Another modern way to promote dharma through Food Paradise at the shopping malls.

  31. Low Khjb on Nov 9, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.Wow the place certainly look nice and cosy.Could not wait to make a trip there to experience it live.The variety of dishes looks extensive as this will certainly keep the regular customer happy to come back more often.
    This would certainly create more opportunity for the staff and visitors of Dataran Pahlawan to get to know more of Kechara in a most subtle way.

  32. Gopinath Ulaganathan on Nov 9, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    awesome to know that KECARA is in my town. WOuld love to visit it soon and have a meal there.

    • Choongs on Nov 18, 2013 at 9:19 am

  33. Ash Ng on Nov 9, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I love the new concept Malacca has. It’s simply unique with class. I didn’t except it turns out to be so appealing and refreshing. It’s just brilliant to even having this thought in the first place. What a remarkably modern style of Buddhism to be introduced within a shopping mall…Kudos guys 🙂

  34. Lucy Yap on Nov 9, 2013 at 1:11 am

    “Awesome” to the unique ,beautiful decor,ambience,food,cozy book corner at Kechara in Dataran Pahlawan.I would recommend to anyone anytime!I am glad Kechara opened it’s door to blessed Melaka,my hometown.Thank you for sharing this wonderful news,Rinpoche.

  35. Wylfred Ng on Nov 8, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Melaka is one of my favorite tourism spot in Malaysia.
    Now i have another place to hang out there, other then the huge Lama Tsongkhapa, hehe.

    Will visit there if i am going to Melaka again.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing

  36. Sean Wang on Nov 8, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    It is so cool to see that Kechara has expanded it’s wings toward one of Malaysia’s most historical cities – Melaka. I hope to visit Dataran Pahlawan in Malacca to feast upon Kechara’s food there one day. It is good to hear that vegetarianism is spreading far and wide around Malaysia!

  37. Sharon Saw on Nov 8, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Cool that Kechara is now in Malacca 🙂 i didn’t even know that until i read this blog post 🙂 Good to give people vegetarian options Kechara style.. and to also have a place for people to look at our books and gift items. Congratulations!

    一切都因在您的慈爱与祝福下,克切拉佛法中心得以茁壮蔓延在马来西亚的每一个角落里

    是如此的法喜充满地看见,克切拉出现在马六甲里,感恩仁波切您总是把佛法透过更贴近我们的方式,摩登的方法,及不同的结构(不同的部门与不同的服务领域),善巧与美丽的把佛法的种子,化成仿佛是一场美丽浪漫的邂逅,但却是让佛法深深地种在我们每一位的心中

    仁波切总是教诲我们要把佛法实践在我们的生活当中,在这里,我们是如此幸福的,即使是用餐也能陶醉满溢的在佛法当中,素食也让我们学习远离杀生的恶业,倘若刚好有人迷失了,刚好我们的朋友需要帮助,或不认识佛法的人,我们也可以在这优美的环境与素食的佳肴陪伴下,向他们分享佛法,分享仁波切的大爱,分享仁波切的开示与教诲,这一切,造就了一个个的顺缘,让我们有更多累积福德资粮,与帮助人的机会

    感恩仁波切您,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

  41. Sharon Ong on Nov 8, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Very happy that Kechara has spread its wings to my hometown. I am definitely coming by on my next trip back there to try all the lovely food. Love the display case for the pendants. Congratulations on this latest outlet!

    • Choongs on Nov 8, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      Ditto. All Malaccans please join this comment thread!

  42. Vinnie Tan on Nov 8, 2013 at 2:09 am

    It is just amazing that Kechara is now in Melaka as well. I am so happy that people in Melaka can meet the Dharma and Rinpoche as well.

    The setting is just so good, it is really a very relaxing place to just have ur lunch at. It gives u a feeling as though u are back home, but we are actually dinning at a foodcourt in a mall. I think it is just awesome.

  43. Julien Roth on Nov 7, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    This is fantastic! I am happy that Kechara has done this 🙂 This will surely help with the spread of the dharma and will let people learn about Kechara. I hope that Food Paradise becomes a huge success, best of luck!

    Keeping one’s surroundings clean not only shows respect to the people we invite into our space but inculcates the habit of discipline. Cleanliness is also important as it helps to remove negative vibes that accumulates over time. In short clean spaces attracts positive energies to dwell one’s home, heart and mind.

    Just as how we bath to rid ourselves from dirt, it is in the same context that we must adopt cleanliness regularly- both physically and spiritually.

    Beautiful rime thangka of Dorje Shugden having a rich and blending colours. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. As a Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden helps us in many ways when we rely on him sincerely with faith and trust. Nor matter what religion we practiced and need not to be a Buddhist.
    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA
    May we be blessed by the wisdom, compassion and protection of Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Nevertheless, the weight of planning for our retirement will start to loom heavier each year. Personal retirement planning is often an intense challenge for loving parents with young children. There’s never enough time to do all the nothing we want. Having a family , successful career is not all. Life is uncertain and nothing is permanent. We ought to think further than that , we should make use of our time meaningful . A happy retirement filled with fun, happiness and compassionate where we engage in dharma all the well through, to have it make some difference that we have lived and lived well. Being happy is accepting where we are in life and making the most out of it every day, minutes meaningfully. Choosing to learn and practice dharma , volunteering , helping those who needs help is my choice . And preparing for the next journey as time is running out .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings .

    To maintain the cleanliness of our house/room is not only to please ourselves or our worldy guests, it’s much more meaningful than these if we do it with a correct motivation. It can even bring us spiritual attainment.

    Just because I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama does not make me a bad person

    An easy logical explanation and with so much respect for His Holiness by Rinpoche. I do question why I have to agree with the Dalai Lama when it is my Guru who had given me the Dharma and cared for my spiritual path? I can disagree and still have respect for His Holiness just as I have respect for the Christians, the Muslims, the Hindus and so forth. Read more and do share with us your thoughts on this matter.

    Definitely a must read as he is an incarnation of Rinpoche and we should be inspired by his greatness and his enlightened activities that are still practiced today.

    This oracle is an amazing oracle that can take trance of 3 different deities, Nechung, Tsiu Marpo and Dorje Shugden. There are not a lot of oracles that can take trance of all these deities.

    Dorje Shugden has been labelled as negative spirits that harm its practitioner. It is impossible for an oracle that takes trance of higher beings such as Nechung and Tsiu Marpo to take trance of an evil spirit such as Dorje Shugden. Nechung or Tsiu Marpo will not let the evil spirit to enter their oracle and do harm. It is just not possible.

    This is another evidence of Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit but an enlightened protector. He is the same with Tsiu Marpo who is an enlightened protector and that is why they can take trance in the same oracle.

    Recently the Tibetan ‘government-in-exile’ known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was called to session and Tenpa Yarphel, a notable Member of the Tibetan Parliament (MP) spoke up about the need for Tibetans to be united. Tenpa Yarphel bravely addressed the Dorje Shugden unethical ban that, by now, everyone knows has been very damaging to the fragile Tibetan unity.

    Tenpa Yarphel then invited the Tibetan parliament to examine for themselves whether or not the ban had yielded any gain, and asked them to think about how it has not helped Tibetan unity:

    Out of great compassion and in order to help us purify our deluded minds, the Buddhas manifest in various forms, each with unique accompanying practices, to help us progress on our path to enlightenment. These include special purification practices that are highly effective to purify negative karma of the body, speech and mind. The practice of the Dakini Ucchusma is one such purification practice and her lineage is alive in the present day, preserved by masters from various Buddhist lineages.

    Ucchusma is unique as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta. The phenomenon of having male and female manifestations of the same Buddha is relatively rare. Her practice can be found in the Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas and she is particularly powerful and effective to purify defilements of the mind, deluded minds, negative thinking, broken promises and the resultant karma, illness, faulty memory, memory issues, body pollution and negative energy.

    These are the things His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said recently:

    1. Holiness has said that Dorje Shugden does not harm him
    2. Since it does not harm him, it does not harm the Tibetan cause because the Dalai Lama is the upholder of the Tibetan cause
    3. His Holiness the Dalai Lama said we can practise Dorje Shugden
    4. His Holiness the Dalai Lama even said where we can go if we want to rely on Dorje Shugden, when he tells the audience that there are monasteries adjacent to Gaden and Sera that practise Dorje Shugden (Shar Gaden Monastery and Serpom Monastery)

    The bottom line is His Holiness now says clearly that Dorje Shugden does not harm him and people can practise this path.

    How to explain when a kid is able to paint like a pro without having to study in an art school for years? This can only be explained as the imprints from his previous life. If talent is gifted by God, why is God so selfish by giving the talent to only some selected people? When we accept all sentient beings take rebirth again and again and habit and attitude are the only things we can bring to our next life, this can explain the phenomena very well. Therefore, what we want to be in the future, we can decide now.

    When we practice Dharma and we do things to please the Buddha or collect merits, we are in fact developing good qualities that we can apply in our lives. Whatever we are doing, if we do it consistently enough, it becomes a habit. When it becomes a habit we will do the same regardless of the circumstances.

    Do you know where is the second tallest standing Buddha statue in the world? It is in Myanmar at Maha Bodhi Ta Htaung monastery with the name of Lay Kyun Sakkya. Apart from the standing Buddha statue, there are also a giant reclining Buddha statue, a magnificent stupa, and thousands of Bodhi trees that were planted by its founder, the late Maha Bodhi Ta Htaung Sayadaw Venerable Narada.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them.

  • 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
