Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) New Building

Aug 24, 2010 | Views: 839

On the spur of the moment, I decided to go to see the new Kechara Soup Kitchen off of Jalan Imbi in town. I wanted to do a prayer and a blessing for it’s further growth. I called up Ruby (the president of this dept) as she was nearby. So myself, Ruby, Sengpiow, Monlam and Siong Woan, went to take a look. It was last minute, so I didn’t call others to join. I was in for a GREAT SHOCK. A TREMENDOUS SHOCK. The whole interior, colors, layout and design was all conceptualized by Ruby. Wow. She is super talented I must say. The shock was everything is so well done. So well planned. So nicely layed out. Everyone in KH must go and see. You must go and see!!!

Back in November 2006 when we were just starting our KSK deliveries, I always wanted to make it expand. Now it is finally. We had a Kechara Paradise Outlet on Bukit Bintang and we use to pack the food there and from there go and deliver to the homeless. We were just doing around 50 packets. Now we are doing 800 packets a week to the homeless and we have our own building. Fantastic!!!!

I felt excited as Ruby took me on a tour and explained. I felt that it was such a good thing we are doing. From the depths of my heart I felt that this building represented the hard work, dedication and aspirations of my senior students who stuck with me for over a decade now loyally and faithfully. It was the aspirations of my senior students and myself.

Many years ago we talked about doing things that would give back to society, that would have impact and perhaps inspire others to do the same. Now we are doing it. I am so happy and extremely proud of this building and what it represents.

We can complain about this or wait for someone else to do something. But while we wait, many people go hungry. We are blessed to be in Malaysia. Malaysia has so many things to happy about. We are blessed by the government here. But there are just some people who are down in their luck at this time and they are homeless. We must help them. We cannot let them starve or feel they are not worth anything. We must help our fellow beings. And WE WILL. WE WILL AND NEVER STOP. KSK WILL EXPAND. I WILL TOGETHER WITH MY KSK PEOPLE MAKE IT EXPAND.

I like to thank Ruby Khong, Julia Tan, Siong Woan, Justin Cheah for their hard work and all the volunteers also. I like to especially fold my hands to His Excellency Dr Datuk Victor Wee , Chairman of Tourism Malaysia to be our Patron of Kechara Soup Kitchen. I am honoured and very happy to work with Datuk Victor Wee. Datuk Wee has a punishing busy schedule, but he has a heart of gold and very soft heart for those in need. I am truly happy that he has added this Dept. of Kechara to his many beneficial causes. He is a man that represents our aspirations well. That is if you want to do something, you can. Just do it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart everyone. My deepest respects to Dr Datuk Victor Wee and Ms Ruby Khong. Thank you to the KSK crew.

My humble prayers, Tsem Rinpoche

Our gracious Patron of KSK, His Excellency Dr Datuk Victor Wee. Who’s heart is pure gold and has a soft spot for those in need.

This is Ms Ruby Khong, the President Kechara Soup Kitchen. She is my long time student and good friend. A lady of intelligence, compassion and loyalty. She has been through so much with me and loyally stuck by for over a decade now… I pray for her, her husband, children and family all to be blessed by Tsongkapa in all their endeavours. Thank you Ruby.

      How kind of you. Kechara Soup Kitchen dept is now feeding over 1,200 homeless persons per month. Your help would be welcomed on their behalf. I thank you. Please contact Datuk Ruby.

    Another of Rinpoche’s dreams and wishes are fulfilled and has taken fruition. The new Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) building in Jalan Imbi is now in operation serving around 700 to 800 of hot food packets to the homeless. Inspired by Rinpoche and the hard work of people like Dato Ruby Khong, Justin Cheah, Julia Tan and Siong Woan and volunteers was able to aquire a building now for KSK to feed the homeless. KSK don’t need to walk the streets to find the homeless to deliver the food. They can go to KSK to take their hot meals now. With the influence of Dr. Datuk Victor Wee who is the chairman of Tourism, Malaysia and Dato Ruby Khong KSK will not find any problem in rasing funds to feed the homeless.

    I would like to congratulate my dear sister Ruby and her energetic team for having done such a good job to make KSK grow so fast within such a short period of time.

    I just got back from visiting KSK building and wow!!! The place is tastefully done up and well planned. The homeless will now have a chance to enjoy a warm meal in a comfortable and nice place….a “5 Star” Soup Kitchen.

    May Kechara Soup Kitchen grow nationwide to benefit many more in the near future.

  4. Lim Han Nee on Sep 2, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Seeing is believing!
    A small group of us visited the new KSK building last Saturday night.We were bowled over by the plan and arrangement of everything in it.We could see that the thoughts behind the planning of every item and unit revolved around the needs of the clients/the homeless and how best to serve them.
    Congratulations to Ruby and your team for finally realizing Rinpoche’s vision of a soup kitchen.I must take this opportunity also to pay special ‘tribute’ to Justin for having so selflessly and untiringly worked to serve the homeless over the last few years.

    Kenny: “I Really respect full time staff (Especially Justin) who goes down to the street on a daily basis to get his hands dirty (everyday) to help these unfortunte souls.”

    Kenny I don´t think you mean something bad but I would change “get his hands dirty” to “get his hands clean” = a pure gift from one person to another pure person in need. Think about it!

    Humbly!

  8. Lin Kechara on Aug 27, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    I am so happy for Rinpoche his dream is realised, for Ruby because her hard work has paid off, for Justin, Julia and the whole crew. But most of all, for the people who will benefit from all these dreams, hard work, aspirations, love and care which makes it all possible, the homeless and hungry.
    May Rinpoche’s dreams continue to manifest into more outlets to benefit the truly needy. Thank you my guru.

  9. Sandy Clarke on Aug 27, 2010 at 9:52 am

    Wow! The new building looks so modern, fresh and vibrant. Every new project – big or small – that gets undertaken at Kechara doesn’t just get “done” (that doesn’t seem good enough!), it gets done to the highest standard, exceeding expectations. When I read the “New Building” headline, I didn’t expect to be blown away as I have been by the results.

    The expansion of KSK is just another fine example of the Kechara philosophy of, “if you want it done, just do it – no excuses!”
    To know that there are people who suffer from the deprivation of the necessities of life is so sad, but it is inspiring to see such hard working people give so much of their time and effort to work collectively towards achieving a goal that works for the continuing benefit of others.

    If I may, I offer my sincere appreciation and respect to everyone at Kechara and those involved with KSK who work tirelessly for others and deliver such a vital service to those in need. And may I also give thanks to Rinpoche for not only selflessly teaching his students the Dharma, but also for constantly providing us with examples of how we can actually live the Dharma to develop ourselves and benefit others.

    Kind regards,
    Sandy

    It’s very tastefully done, and I hope that KSK will be able to benefit a lot of the down and out ppl and help them get back up on their feet. Also, KSK have also opened up an avenue for lots and lots of normal people to get involve in charity… no excuse not to now… ha,ha. Congrats Ruby and the KSK team.

    I Really respect full time staff (Especially Justin) who goes down to the street on a daily basis to get his hands dirty (everyday) to help these unfortunte souls. You really must have a heart of gold… please perservere and keep up the good work and may all the buddha’s smile on you.

  11. Ethan on Aug 26, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    Brilliant!

    KSK has come a long way indeed. The growth in such short period only shown that the effort, passion and the hard work of the KSK team. Kudos to the KSK team!

    I like the interior of it. Very simple and chic. Now they have a place where they can serve the people better, finding them jobs, arranging medical treatment, a place to understand the needy even more and also make it easier for the volunteers and patrons to pack food for the homeless. With its location in the heart of the city, it is more accessible for the people. I am very happy for KSK growth and I hope more and more people will join us to continue to benefit others.

  12. weeliang on Aug 26, 2010 at 2:16 am

    Just to add a little detail. If anyone is looking to pay the new KSK office a visit, please turn left right after that Honda showroom on Jalan Imbi. You will see it on your right. You wont miss it. The signboard really stands out. 🙂

  13. weeliang on Aug 26, 2010 at 2:13 am

    I took a drive down to town this morning to have a look at the new KSK in Jalan Imbi. It is located at a very strategic spot. We could even notice it from the main road. Many good wishes for the smooth operations at the new KSK. May the packing of food this weekend be a new chapter for a even more successful KSK!! I have also heard that Ms Ruby Khong has arranged for celebrity chefs to cook at KSK. I admire the love and respect that everyone at KSK has for the homeless. They bring hope to the needy.

  14. Anila on Aug 25, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    Congratulations Ruby. You have really fulfill our Guru’s Tsem Rinpoche dream of wanting to help and feed the homeless which he had experience when he was young. Rinpoche has gone thru a lot of hunger and had to sleep under bridges while making his way to LA where then met Zong Rinpoche and his centre. From this experience he realised how hunger and being homeless can affect a person. From what I understand Su ming started off by distributing food packets herself to people on the streets. Later Ruby took over. With hard work and lots of efforts Ruby and her crew has bought a building and also made it into a centre to provide not only food but medical and also looking for jobs for the homeless under one roof. And that is Kechara Soup Kitchen in Jalan Imbi.

  15. Han Siew Fong on Aug 25, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    wow, the KSK new building shows the energy of the team,
    Rejoice to Ruby, Justin Cheah, Siong Woan, Julia and many other volunteers and sponsors.

    KSK truly the vision & purpose of practicing dharma through spiritual, a manifestation of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche compassion.

  16. Angel sh Ooi on Aug 25, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche,
    Thank You so much for sharing with us the wonderful news and the nice pictures of KSK’s new building.
    I am extremely happy to see KSK’S OWN BUILDING has manifested and is also one of Rinpoche’s dream to help and benefit others.
    Thank you to Dr. Datuk Victor Wee, Ruby and the teams for making KSK manifest.
    I am very proud of all you, your hard work and Kechara Organisation.
    CONGRATULATIONS TO KSK!

  17. KH Ng on Aug 25, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    When we see others’ successes
    Whether in daily endeavors
    Or in Dharmic activities
    The first thing that comes
    To our minds
    Is jealousy and envy
    We ask ourselves
    Why these successes don’t come to us;
    Not caused by us?
    Rejoice! You fools!
    For we are the same.
    Since we are the same!
    We and I are the same.
    I am the fool!
    Rejoice fool! Rejoice!

    Thanks KSK. Thanks Guru!

  18. ming on Aug 25, 2010 at 11:31 am

    This is fantastic Ruby and to you team. WE Kecharians are proud of you and the team and to work that you all do. Imagine how many people this will be able to help. It’s phenomenal. With such good motivation, KSK will continue to grow and benefit so many. Kechara is so full of wonderful and inspirational people, and with the blessings of Rinpoche, will go on to benefit many more!

  19. henry ooi on Aug 25, 2010 at 10:18 am

    KSK building is very well done to provide the best to its clients. It is just a building but the present KSK committee members headed by able bodied Ruby and Justin Cheah are setting good examples for others who inspire to be on the team.

    Feeding the homeless is just the beginning, importantly nurturing them to be independently self sustaining for them to regain their lost self esteem, lack of confidence and trust, and to rejoin society as a citizen of the world.

    May other such KSK org sprout throughout to benefit many more.

  20. Jean Mei on Aug 25, 2010 at 9:07 am

    I just got back from taking a look at it..

    Although my friend and I didn’t know where it was exactly, we drove along Jln Imbi and spotted it off the main road!

    The sign on the lot was big, bright and the words KECHARA was very clear!

    It’s at a BRILLIANT location. I had breakfast 3 blocks down the shop-lot at the inter-section, and while watching the sun rise and watching people making their way to work I felt that the area where the shop lot is at had a different feel to it; a very good feel to it.

    I love how it’s at the very heart of the city and accessible to a lot of homeless people (by foot).

    I felt so proud for both my mum and for Kechara for having such a presence in KL city and all for a good cause. 🙂

  21. Diana Pereyda on Aug 25, 2010 at 6:44 am

    I love this its so perfect so much cleaner and newer then anything i ever seen u.s what a wonderful person Ruby, also beautiful. good merit and making more good merit, good for her and good for all the unfortunate people she is helping. also making one of Rinpoche’s projects out of compassion he wants to do. how wonderful she has the talent and chance to help him.

  22. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 25, 2010 at 3:19 am

    KSK was the brainchild of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, and ever since many homeless people are no longer invisible to us anymore to us. The new KSK building is so fabulous looking and may it truly benefit many people and bring them back to society’s fold.
    Hope more doctors can step up to help the homeless at KSK>

  23. cynthia on Aug 25, 2010 at 3:06 am

    If it looks anything like the pictures, then I must agree it looks really good. I will definitely go and see with my own eyes. I think KH should feel very very proud that is this the very first and one of its kind in Malaysia. Well done Ruby and KSK team!

    This is what I see in the future. People queuing up daily and some even camps outside KSK building :=).

  24. Bonita on Aug 25, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Yes, KSK has indeed grown leaps and bounce under the strong leadership of Ruby. She is really an all rounder from doing PR, socialising, leading a group of dedicated staff and also in-charge of Rinpoche’s personal affairs matters. She is also the ‘darling’ of the media nowadays, wherever you go, one will sure hear of her name.

    Many many more will benefit from the growth of KSK. Homeless will not only be helped to get off the street but also will be empowered to be independent.

    Congrats, Ruby & team!

  25. Yoke Fui on Aug 24, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Yes, KSK has come a long way in a relatively short period.

    Rinpoche’s conceptualization of this virtuous deed is actualised to the publicly well known organization by his long time student, Ruby Khong together with her team of dedicated committee – Julia, Siong Woan, Justin and Karen.

    They have shown with Guru devotion and effort , nothing is impossible.

  26. Shirley Maya Tan on Aug 24, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!

    From walking on the streets to feed the poor and homeless, Kechara Soup Kitchen has evolved into its very own building. Now, KSK can do so much more and serve their ‘clients’ much better.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen is now able to feed 7 days a week and not just on weekends.

    They are many facilities in the building which their ‘clients’ are able to make full use of. Those washing machines and dryers can certainly be out to good use! Those who live off the streets can now wash their clothes in KSK, get warm food to eat and drinks. Above all, be counseled and helped.

    Ruby has worked very hard to get KSK to where it is today. I dare say, she is just getting warmed up.
    This lady never stops because she believes in her Guru’s vision.

    May KSK help many more and benefit the whole community!

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing all these great news and wonderful pictures.

  27. KYC on Aug 24, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    I’m very happy for Rinpoche. It is like a dream come true. Congratulations to the President Ruby Khong and her team for making this happen. The building is very impressive and the facilities are very modern. I hope many homeless and hungry people will find solace here. I’m looking forward to seeing it in person and learning about KSK’s plans to further help and nurture people in need.

  28. ngeowchin on Aug 24, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Wow Wow Wow.
    There is a Malay proverb that says,’ A little by little , over time, a mountain arises’. I thought this reflected how I feel when I look at the pictures here of KSK’s new building – the fruition of many little wishes and actions- all started from a single sincere wish from Rinpoche to start a Soup kitchen to feed and help the homeless in the streets.
    To Datuk Dr Wee, Ruby and the KSK Com, volunteers past and present,and all the volunteers, I salute your outstanding hard work, and kind hearts to bring KSK to this level of success to benefit even more.
    You make me feel proud to be a Kecharian.KSK is truly the manifestion of Rinpoche’s great compassion.

  29. Sharon Saw on Aug 24, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    KSK has grown so much over the years and this building is really a milestone to be proud of.

    Congratulations to President Ruby Khong and her very capable team, and of course Rinpoche for being the inspiration and support for KSK to benefit others.

    The building looks fantastic! May it bring relief to many.

  30. Andrew James Boon on Aug 24, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    In just a little under 4 years KSK has managed to grow at an exponential rate. An example of how sheer genuine motivation, hard work and all for a good cause will open the doors to success.

    I have had the privilege to work with and enjoy the company of Liaison Ruby and I find her character and energy infectious. You know in your heart she is genuine and has no hidden agendas. Incredible lady and she deserves all the credit and good exposure she is getting now. Not to feed her ego as she knows, but to make KSK grow even more to serve more… as KSK’s motto goes: “Hunger knows no barriers”, then why should its growth!

    Kudos to Ruby and her very hard working team of Justin, Julia and Siong Woan. You guys are shining examples not only to fellow Kecharians but Malaysians alike. World recognition is around the corner and exciting times ahead!

    Much to love to all…. Andrew

    • Andrew James Boon on Aug 24, 2010 at 10:52 pm

      Last line of my 2nd paragraph has a typo: It should read ” as KSK’s motto goes: “Hunger knows no barries”, then why SHOULDNT its growth!

  31. Paris on Aug 24, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Wow this is fantastic! I am, as ever, bowled over and so happy for all that Ruby and her team have done. Ruby shared with me her motivation for making the soup kitchen so nice: that many the people on the streets will probably never have the chance to eat and spend time in a nice place. So they made the soup kitchen extra nice for their clients – a real show of care for their entire well-being, not just “getting the job done” by giving them food.

    Thank you Ruby for showing us such a true example of selflessness and care.

  32. Elena on Aug 24, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    The building’s got my mum’s style written all over it! A project can only manifest in such a manner when the leader has a good motivation. I think if mum were doing it for herself to look good, she’d do a subpar job because her heart wasn’t in the project. But the great thing about her is that she always want to give her best in everything she does. If I can grow up to be half the person she is, I’d be quite happy!

    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 interesting sharing .

    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 priceless sacred Dorje Shugden thangka of the 19th Century. It was commissioned by the Mongolian State Oracle, Lama Luvsankhaidav .As the Mongolian State Oracle Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav did took trance of Dorje Shugden, Nechung and Kache Marpo, significance the importance of Dorje Shugden ‘s practice at that time to the State Oracle. And they knew that it’s a very beneficial’s practice as over 350 years, high Lamas from the major schools of Tibetan Buddhis have relied on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This Dorje Shugden’s thangka can still be found in the Choijin Lama Temple Museum in Ulanbaatar, Mongolia as to this days.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog teams for this sharing.

    An interesting short biography of the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu who was the last Lama-Ruler of Mongolia. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism and the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. Interesting read of a great Lama who has played an important part in the Mongolian Buddhism history.
    Thank you 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.
~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
