    This is so good to help spread the awareness. Then more and more people have the chance to donate to such a good causes. Especially animals and homeless people, to me those are like two of the best causes that there are in the world. I wish that more and more people would do this and spread the awareness, so that there will be more happy animals and less people on the streets.

    By their simple action of putting up a kechara animal sanctuary donation box up at their own vegeterian restuarant, Elize, Johnny and Oscar has help kechara house to create awareness to the general public to alleviate the sufferings of animals through generous donations. In addition, Elize and Johnny have jointly made personal contributions of 50 packets of cooked food to our Kechara soup kitchen weekly, with an additional 5 packs from Oscar to help the urban poor in the food distribution. Apart from helping fellow human beings, Elize also took the initiative to help out animals which needed help. It seems that when Rinpoche’s beloved Mumu was sick and admitted to the vet clinic for trearment, Elize volunteered to take turn with our KB to look after and nursed Mumu back to good health like her own family member. Such is the compassionate nature of Elize!

    Although I have not met or know Elize. From what I have read in the comments that people have given. I have come to the conclusion that Elize kind, charitable and compassionate heart is universal. Irrespective they be animals or human beings. To her all are living beings. Apart from going on rounds to distribute food on Saturday nights she also donates 50 food packets. Elize need not have to come to Kechara House to show her good qualities of kindness, love and compassion. She has even suggested to put a donation box in her shop to help Kechara House to raise funds for the charitable work that Kechara House is doing. A lot of people have benefitted by knowing this wonderful lady Elize through the adoption of Mumu by Rinpoche.

    I find that there’s many not only talented people that Kechara has affinity with but with PASSIONATE people. These individuals with passion are the key to the success of KWPC in future. There can be only one drive in this world that makes the power of compassion, wisdom and skillful means pervade the world and that is PASSION.
    Having reconnected with Elize recently, Elize has certainly gotten herself involved immensely with the Dharma works of Kechara and Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and she has definitely committed herself to making this work for her and her passion for dogs. In making the Kechara Animal Sanctuary manifest, she has made an effort to create awareness within her shop. I think that her passion for dogs will attract more people like her into our vision of making manifest an animal sanctuary manifest.
    kudos to Elize!

    To offer people to donate some money for a charitable cause is exactly like giving them the opportunity to help, to be better people. I have seen Rinpoche asking specific person to donate a specific amount (even a small amount) for a specific cause with good motivation, the reason for this is not that Rinpoche or Kechara House needs the money, it is that the people that are giving need to give so as to create a good karma, so as to collect merit. Then Rinpoche could also ask them to dedicate the merit to someone specific, like their companion or parents, or children. In doing this, Rinpoche gives the opportunity to someone to simply become better. In this case, it is such much merit that Elize can create, through her, many people will donate and engage in a virtuous action. How wonderful!

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Thanks Fang you have given me an insight into Elize that I never knew before. Elize is always enthusiastic in whatever she does and I am not surprised she is dedicated to animals as how you have said. I have started buying my cat food both dry and wet from her, and I tell you my cats are very happy with the choice of food they have been getting. She also has been helping me to get recycling items from the businesses around her, she has made her store into a recycling collection center somewhat. Its good to know that there are pet store owners who do screen the people who are buying pets, there are too many pet owners who are not very responsible at times.

  7. fang on Jul 8, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Elize is not like your average pet shop owner who is there to make a few quick bucks from the pets she has in her store. This woman has integrity, principle and most of all, love for all the furry four legged friends she temporarily houses, until they find a good home to go to. I first met Elize in 2005 when I adopted my little Australian Silky Terrier, Pepé. My first impression of her – standoffish, cold, interrogating and a tad scary! I later found out why she was the way she was… Elize screens all potential pet buyers very stringently and if she doesn’t think you are right for the animal, she would not allow you to bring them home. I guess I was very lucky to have passed her test! Pepé have been with me for 5 years now and has helped me through rough patches.
    Elize is one person I know who will have no qualms putting her furry friends’ needs before hers. Having gone through a lot herself, it is amazing how Elize can still see pass her own problems and sufferings to care for those who needs her. Thank you Elize for being the inspiring person that you are… I wish you happiness always.

    I support the donation boxes. I like putting money in them because I know where they go. Mumu boxes creates the causes for Kechara Animal Sanctuary to grow. Kechara Soup Kitchen boxes creates the causes for more homeless and urban poor to get off the streets and live a better life. I would like to thank Elize, johnny & a vegetarian restaurant owner who are jointly contributing 50 packets of cooked food to ksk weekly and oscar who is contributing 5 packets of food too because they are creating the causes for 55 in total of people to be less hungry. May you all be healthy and may you all live to an old ripe age so that you can benefit people through Kechara House and Kechara Soup Kitchen!

  9. Wee Liang on Jul 8, 2010 at 3:55 am

    Dear Elize, Johnnie and Oscar,
    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to reach out to more homeless. You are touching the homeless not just with food but also with hope and love.
    May you guys be blessed with love and generosity.
    with folded hands,
    WL

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Once again, KSK & KAS are blessed to have ‘Dharma Protectors’, ensuring that the cause is kept growing and thriving through their great support and joint efforts for the realization of KAS as well.
    How wonderful and heart warming to learn that there is now one less hungry, homeless, deprived and unloved human and animal due to the collective efforts of these individuals through Kechara and the causes planted in them by Rinpoche for greater heights and levels both in the present and future as well.
    Again, another worthy faithful reminder that whilst we cannot be Mother Teresas overnight, we can emulate these ‘Dharma Protectors’ from the most basic level and start off from there! Sadhu!

  12. margaretlee on Jul 6, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    Though I have not met you in person, just by reading all the nice comments about what a caring person you are, I would not doubt so. I would love to meet you one day as there are not that many animal lovers around. I mean true animal lovers, not those pet shop owners who merely want to profit from selling the pets. I heard from Rinpoche that sometimes these pet shop owners would purposely not feed their pets or just feed them one tiny meal a day to make them look miserable and weak, so this will create more impact towards all the potential buyers. I think that is really evil.
    Now that you and your friend Johnny and oscar are jointly sponsoring food for our Kechara Soup Kitchen weekly, you are really an excellant example of someone who is genuine and just want to help.
    Thank you Elize and thank you for taking care of Mumu during her sickness few months back.

  13. chia on Jul 6, 2010 at 7:31 am

    I first met Elize and Jonny when rinpoche is adopted mumu 6 years ago. When Rinpoche told her he wanted to adopt mumu, I can see her expression not willing to let go mumu, she hug mumu and have tear at her eyes. Rinpoche promise her will take good care of mumu future, provide mumu have good shelter. That moment, I felt she ready is the animal love, sincere, not just want to make money as the breeder selling their dogs. She ready care and make sure her puppies go to right home.
    Sometime we seek her opinion when mumu fall sick; she will recommend the vet and clinic for mumu, what supplement can mumu take for his skin problem and etc. Recently when mumu had sick, she shows up at the vet’s clinic to help take care of mumu until mumu recover. She ready goes out her way to save animal. Now she is volunteering at Kechara soup kitchen to feed the hunger at the street. Elize kindnesses to animal and human are good example for many people to learn. Let many of us separate the animal care by supporting Kechara Animal Sanctuary .

    The first time I met Elize was at the recent Kechara Soup Kitchen roadshow at One Utama. She arrive in our T-shirt and start to get to work without wasting any minute! She volunteered to distribute brochures to shoppers around our kiosk, and I soon noticed she came back to replenish the brochures real quickly! It goes to show she really put her heart and soul in everything she does, and I admire her. Later, when we were paired together to approach shoppers for donation, she told me all about her pet shop and her dogs!! Although I do not know much about dogs, I do know that she really love them from the bottom of her heart and she had this glow on her face when she related a story of how she check out her potantial customer before she allows them to buy her dogs.. Wow!! We definitely need more Elize in this crazy world, she is one shinning example for all humanity.

  15. Beng Kooi on Jul 4, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    I can personally vouch that Elize is a true animal lover first and foremost, and everything else second. Her care for the animals in her petshop is unsurpassed. Many times, we have gone out on the Kechara Soup Kitchen midnight rounds, finishing at about 1 or 2am, and although she is drop-dead tired, she and Johnny still return to the store to clean up after the puppies so that they do not have to sit around in their own filth. She puts the animals first, and herself second. And i really respect that.
    And now she has given her care to Kechara Soup Kitchen as well, sponsoring food for the homeless of Kuala Lumpur. We definitely need more people like Elize who are able to see beyond their own individual problems, pain and suffering. We need people to realise that the solution for your problems is to focus out. Help others. Realise that your problems are not that big and that other people could be in worse straits. If we do that, we begin to heal. And that is the way to true happiness.

  16. ruby on Jul 4, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Elize : pet shop owner, dog breeder, animal lover, social worker, charitable, warm caring being, unpretentious and ever gracious, and the list goes on.. If we could have more like Elize, Kechara Animal Sanctuary will manifest fast. Some who do not understand may ask, aren’t you all a buddhist organisation, so whats with all these art studio, dharma outlets, soup kitchen, restaurant, media and publishing house, etc. What i really want to reply is “why are there skin specialist, heart surgeon, ent specialist, dietician, etc? why not just A DOCTOR to heal every sickness you have? easier right?!”
    With all our habituations and attachments AND hang ups, each one has to be healed using different methods. Some may be attracted to arts hence will find solace and peace in Kechara Saraswati Arts. Some may like more interactive activity and serve the poor, hence the Kechara Soup Kitchen. Kechara Animal Sanctuary could be therapeutic for some who find it difficult to interact with others or for those who have felt rejected in live or for many to practice real empathy as animals are unable to give one back in material form for the kindness one has given to them. Hence the need for Kechara Animal Sanctuary, a haven not just for abandoned animals but for human alike.

    In Kechara Oasis Restaurant, we have also these donation boxes to create awareness amongst our customers to donate towards Kechara Animal Sanctuary and Kechara Soup Kitchen. When you dine in Kechara Oasis Restaurant, it is eating with compassionate heart as well as practicing generosity. For every customer that dine in Kechara Oasis will be given RM1 to personally donate into these charity boxes. You will surely witness the glow and happiness in customers faces while they do so. While eating in Kechara Oasis Restaurant, you are collecting merits. How nice!!!
    Come and experience yourselves.

    Elize, Johnny and Oscar – it is through friends like you that Rinpoche is able to reach out to pet lovers. We are so lucky to have Mumu with Rinpoche. Mumu is such a nice little fella. He always greets us with his little tail and friendly bark, sometimes running up to us and planting kisses. Mumu’s presence in the room really lights up the faces of all. Just the sound of his bark somewhere in the vicinity will make everyone turn around to look for him. Rinopoche has given his love to Mumu who in turn has given his to all of us, unconditionally. Help us help the animals – your contribution goes a long way.
    Your kind donation encompasses the act of giving, cutting down miserliness – a teaching Rinpoche imparts to his students.

  19. Justin Cheah on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    Both Elize, Johnny and Oscar are very kind people. They love animals and also consistently volunteers in Kechara Soup Kitchen’s Saturday midnight rounds. They even helped KSK in finding food sponsors and created awareness at their own neighbourhood promoting Kechara.
    I see a lot of stray animals suffering on the streets and I hope more and more people like these compassionate trio comes forward and do their part in saving and care animals for sake of them. Plans to set up an animal sanctuary is currently in the early stages and I hope there will be generous and kind people out there to come forward to lend a helping hand to make Rinpoche’s dream of having a large animal sanctuary for all stray animals to come true.

  20. Cynthia Lee on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:52 am

    I truly respect Elize for being the true animal lover who truly cares for the animals she sells. Even though running a petshop is a business, I am very sure Elize has wanted to combine her passion while being able to pay the bills. As I personally owned a pet (kiosk) before, this is how I understand of Elize.
    I hope that all petshop owners out there will treat their animals well by at least providing a clean and good condition for them. It really sickens me when an animal is abused and mistreated.
    How can one not love animals? All my cats and dogs has truly brought me so much comfort and happiness. They shared my sorrows and tears. They are like my kids and I truly miss them. May I create the conditions to be with them again soon.

  21. mayy on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:36 am

    Bless you Elize for the wonderful work that you do and love that you show for the animals. We often hear, read and witness the cruelty inflicted by humans on animals. Rinpoche you have given us hope that humans are not that bad after all. Animals can give us so much love and devotion and happiness and no matter how we treat them. They never complain about what sort of food we gave them, the place they sleep in and the treatment we gave them. Thus, it is important that we should always treat all animals like how we treat any humans with love, tender care and respect.

  22. Bonita Khoo on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Elize is one of the kindest persons that I’ve met. I found out that she loves animals so much that she has to check out the potential owner who is interested in buying her puppies to make sure that her ‘little babies’ will have a safe and happy home.
    Even though mumu had ‘left’ her so many years ago since he went home with H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, Elize still shows the kind of love and care like a mother for her child when mumu was admitted to the hospital. This is what I see as compassion in action!
    Elize is also supporting Kechara organization in whatever ways she could like sponsoring food for the homeless and now placing Kechara Animal Sanctuary donation box in her shop! Thank you very much, Elize, for all the help and support and it clearly shows me every one of us can contribute in whatever ways and forms to the best of our capabilities.

  23. Sharon Saw on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:59 am

    I had the good fortune to meet Elize awhile back, when Rinpoche invited a few Kecharians to ‘raid’ Elize’s petshop. (see Rinpoche’s blog post entitled “Donating Dog Food to Various Animal NGOs” http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/06/donating-dog-food-to-various-animal-ngos.html)
    Elize is a very lovely person – the rare petshop owner who really loves animals. Apparently she screens potential pet buyers very stringently and if she doesn’t have a good feeling about a potential customer, she won’t sell the dog to them. This is such a great motivation, as opposed to other shops which are more profit-oriented. It is no surprise to see that she wants to put a donation box for Kechara Animal Sanctuary in her petshop. Elize would do anything to help animals!

  24. susan on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:51 am

    I wish to echo what Henry said…especially the part that committed people to head and operate this animal sanctuary is being sought! We all love animals…but most of us only love our own pets. If we really love animals, we would stop eating them…as pointed out by Rinpoche. How can we translate our love for pets to not harming them, to taking care of more animals. Rinpoche wish to start building a platform for us all to contribute towards this cause..in funds, in contacts and connections, in time, in expertise…we welcome all!
    Thank you Elize and the many other friends who have contributed towards this cause.

  25. Shirley Tan on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    I must say that I am not much of an animal lover. I don’t have any pets at all. But since getting to know Rinpoche, Kechara and Mumu, I can understand why it is so important to love all beings – big or small, on two legs or four. Rinpoche told us many times how he got Mumu from Elize’s shop and to this day, they still keep such close contact. Even holding a Mumu Family Reunion party together. And yes, as Henry wrote, Elize even took turns to take care of Mumu when he was hospitalised. Caring for animals is no different than caring for humans. Love is love, there should be no distinction. There should not be any selective compassion at all. I am sure Elize, as an owner and lover of animals would not be casually supporting Kechara or Rinpoche if she had not also thoroughly checked us out and is assured that the work Kechara does is truly compassion in action – through the various mediums. It is great to see such support coming in from the community, starting with people like Elize.

  26. henry ooi on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    When Rinpoche’s beloved Mumu was admitted into the vet’s clinic for treatment and observation, Elize took turns with KB and BK to care and nurse Mumu back to good health. Elize is such a warm and caring being not only to animals but to humans as shown by her and her friends’ sincerity in giving 50 packets of food weekly to KSK.
    Kechara Animal Sanctuary (KAS) is another of Rinpoche’s compassionate methods to alleviate the sufferings of animals. Plans to start this sanctuary is on the drawing board….committed people to head and operate this animal sanctuary is being sought. Monetary donations are welcome.

  27. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    It is wonderful to see Elize have actually come visit and support us by having one of our Kechara Animal Sanctuary’s donation box in her store. I have read in the earlier blog posts regarding Elize and she is the breeder of Mumu and Rinpoche adopted Mumu 6 years ago.
    It is so neat that the whole family could reunite after so many years. Mumu is the only dog Rinpoche had for many years and I fondly remember many moments of how Rinpoche loved, cuddled, fed and trained Mumu.
    I think personally think Mumu is best trained dog in the whole world. Like I mentioned in my book There’s No Way But Up, sometimes Mumu seemed more human than animal.
    Inspired by Rinpoche’s love for animals, Kechara Animal Sanctuary was created with the hopes to start a sanctuary for lovely animals. It is our way to express our compassion towards these animals who have no way to express their gratitude. I love the fact that the mascot is Mumu! Check it out in this link –

  28. Andrew James Boon on Jul 3, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    I agree with Paris wholeheartedly that Elize does indeed give us hope in animal breeders in this country. Hope that more people will see animals more then merely just an insignificant existence but a very valid existence that brings as us much joy (if not more) as our deluded minds gain from other pleasures. It is through my own personal experience that such a pristine joy can only come about from helping those that cant help themselves.
    So touched were we by Rinpoche’s act of compassion (link below) that both Thierry and I have switched our entire household purchases for our babies to Elize’s shop. If I may humbly ask, please do the same if not find some place where you KNOW FOR SURE you are supporting someone or someplace that is benefitting the animals! If you need help in getting in touch with Elize please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

    Elize really set a good example of a animal lover. Wish that many people are like Elize, bringing cares to animals with real actions

  30. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 7:04 am

    Knowing people like Elize gives us hope again in animal breeders in this country. KL really needs much more people were like Elize as she’s such a beautiful example of an animal carer and lover.
    More stories about her on Rinpoche’s blog too such as here: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/06/mumus-family-reunion.html and on http://www.kechara.com/animal-sanctuary

  31. Ethan Chu on Jun 30, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    It is great to see Elize always put on a big smile everytime I meet her. She is a great person and had contributed a lot in a short period of time.
    Elize definitely will inspire a lot of people. I hope more and more people will start to care about the surroundings and help those who are in need… Just based on a simple fact that “we don’t need them BUT they need us..” so start caring, people!

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    I feel so blessed for learning something from this article. Thank you so much for your thoughtful sharing. I truly understand the possess power to change our lives during our falls was actually a good sign. I gained some positive energy and felt was extremely incredible!

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

    Interesting ….. astronauts and military personnel has discovered the existence of UFO and aliens beyond the earth. They have proof that UFO do exist and we are alone in the universe. Leroy Gordon Cooper, a space pioneer and Robert Dean a retired Command Sergeant Major in the US Army tells us all . With Leroy Gordon witnessed first-hand encounter of an actual UFO and the “Cosmic Top Secret” documents detailing alien activity on earth viewed by Robert Dean has already proven it. But it was kept secret.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining the present-day technology that has affected our general well-being situation spiritually . Giving an example of why rain dance doesn’t work anymore. Spiritual practice give us aspects of the powers of the divine. Technology is a magic and its objects remains a puzzle that is hard to unlock in regards to human experiences. The effect of technology could enhance the human material civilization, but its impact was so strong to our spiritual practice, it caused human addiction. In the modern era, technology has become a seemingly ubiquitous part of everyone’s life such as computers and hand phones. The natural element are gone, environment been disturbed so things will not happen . Interesting read.
    Professor Stephen Hawking, did mention before that advances in science and technology could lead to destructions .

    Living our life in the public eye , we have a heavy responsibility on our shoulder that most people thought. But with determination and courageous Rinpoche did it without any burden. Rinpoche did it all these years, born and bred to be in the public eye, Rinpoche seemed to know what to do without thinking about it. A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives that’s what Rinpoche thought of. Rinpoche’s thought was to help them and to bless their spiritual practice in a way. Rinpoche cares more for the people than himself, of course Rinpoche loves to be alone. Rinpoche loves to alone living up the greenery mountains and clear lakes as mentioned before. Rinpoche could not avoid being in the public eye and getting recognized. Rinpoche never retaliated in whatever situation, such as the Dorje Shugden controversy ,Rinpoche kept all his vows in accordance with the Vinaya nor matter what happened.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your wonderful recalling memories with our Lama.

    I am grateful that Kechara organise this event every year so we can make offering to our ancestor, departed families and also to all sentient beings whether alive or not. We may not know what action we have engaged which afflicted others in the past and the prayer is important to purify our negative karma. Thank you Kechara for organising this event and allow us the opportunity to collect merits through the prayer and offerings.

    A very beautiful Buddha statue. With this huge size many beings can view from a far and benefit them by planting a dharma seed to them. I’m sure the statue will attract a lot of people to visit Thimpu in Bhutan. May all be blessed and rejoice for the people for are involved in the planning, sponsorship and construction.

The Unknown

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

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

    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
