Sejarah

Kaum China merupakan kumpulan etnik kedua terbesar di Malaysia selepas kaum Melayu. Masyarakat Malaysia yang berketurunan Cina terdiri daripada beberapa sub-etnik, seperti Cina Min, Cina Yue, Cina Hakka, Cina Wu dan Cina Utara. Penempatan pertama yang dibuka di Malaysia ditubuhkan pada abad ke-15 apabila Puteri China, Hang Li Po telah dikahwinkan dengan Sultan Melaka. Semenjak itu, kaum Cina telah berkembang menjadi populasi kedua terbesar di Malaysia.

 

Gelombang Pertama – Perikatan Strategik

Sejarah masyarakat Cina di Malaysia bermula dengan ketibaan Laksamana Zheng Ho (tahun 1371 – 1435), yang juga dikenali sebagai Laksamana Cheng Ho. Cheng Ho merupakan seorang pengembara, sida-sida, dan diplomat dari Dinasti China Ming. Sepanjang hayatnya, dia telah memyertai sebanyak tujuh pelayaran, dan dalam jangka masa itu telah berlayar ke Melaka sebanyak lima kali.

Berikutan misi diplomatik Zheng He, Sultan Empayar Melaka yang ke-6, Mansur Shah (memerintah: tahun 1456 – 1477) telah menagturkan perkahwinan politik kepada Hang Li Po, seorang puteri dari Dinasti Ming pada tahun 1459. Sebelum mengahwini dan menjadi isteri kelima Sultan Mansur Shah, Puteri Hang Li Po telah memeluk agama Islam. Apabila Puteri Hang Li Po tiba di Melaka, puteri itu telah membawa sejumlah 500 orang dayang bersama-samanya.

Sebagai hadiah perkahwinan kepada permaisuri baru dan dayangnya, Sultan Mansur Shah telah memperkenankan kepada mereka sebuah kawasan khasi di Melaka, yang dinamakan Bukit Cina. Dalam membangunkan kawasan tersebut, sebuah waduk air telah dibina, dan kemudiannya dikenali sebagai Perigi Raja dan menjadi sumber air yang penting bagi mereka yang tinggal di kawasan ini. Pada tahun 1677, pihak Belanda telah membina dinding mengelilingi telaga and menukarkannya kepada sebuah telaga hajat. Pada hari ini, Bukit Cina merupakan salah satu dari jirat Cina yang terbesar di Malaysia, dengan kira-kira 12,500 buah kubur. Apa yang memelikkan, tidak ada catatan yang tertinggal yang merekodkan seorang Puteri China bernama Hang Li Po dalam rekod Dinasti Ming di China. Dipercayai bahawa Puteri Hang Li Po mungkin bukanlah keluarga terdekat Emperor Yongle dari Dinasti Ming, tetapi sebaliknya merupakan anggota istananya.

Banyak dayang-dayang Hang Li Po yang mengahwini pengiring-pengiring lelaki Sultan Mansur Shah dan menghasilkan waris berketurunan China-Melaka. Waris keturunan kumpulan pendatang Cina pertama ini (yang terdiri dari kumpulan sub-etnik Cina Hokkien) yang tiba di Malaysia antara abad ke-15 dan ke-17, dikenali sebagai Peranakan, yang merangkumi sub-cabang yang terkenal sebagai Bab-Nyonya. Orang lelaki dikenali sebagai Baba dan wanita dipanggil Nyonya.

Gelombang Kedua – Demi Mencari Masa Depan yang Lebih Baik

Gelombang kedua pendatang Cina ke Malaysia tiba sewaktu Malaysia merupakan sebuah Koloni British pada awal abad ke-19. Pada waktu itu, negara ini dikenali sebagai British Malaya yang merangkumi Malaysia dan Singapura pada masa sekarang. Dalam jangka masa itu, China sedang mengalami kekacauan yang genting dan baru sahaja tewas dalam Perang Candu Pertama (tahun 1839 – 1842), Perang Candu Kedua (tahun 1856 – 1860) dan sedang berada dalam perang saudara antara Parti Komunis dan Parti Nationalis China (tahun 1927 – 1950).

Konflik dalaman telah menjatuhkan China ke dalam kegawatan yang besar, yang mengakibatkan persekitaran politik yang tidak stabil dan situasi kehidupan yang susah, yang menyebabkan ramai orang Cina terpaksa berhijrah untuk mencari peluang yang lebih baik. Salah satu destinasi yang popular adalah British Malaya. Kebanyakan pendatang Cina dalam gelombang kedua datang dari wilayah Fujian dan Guandong.

 

Gelombang Ketiga – Pasangan Berbangsa Asing

Gelombang ketiga penghijrahan oran Cina ke Malaysia berlaku pada tahun 1900-an tetapi kali ini dalam jumlah yang lebih kecil, kerana kebanyakan mereka datang sebagai pasangan kepada mereka yang telah berhijrah terlebih dahulu ke Malaysia. Kebanyakan mereka datang dari bahagian utara China dan bertutur dalam dialek Mandarin.

 

Populasi Cina di Malaysia

CHI08 - 1

Kaum Cina merupakan kumpulan etnik kedua terbesar di Malaysia selepas bumiputera Melayu, dengan kaum India menjadi kaum ketiga terbesar di negara ini. Kira-kira 6.9 juta daripada jumlah 31 juta orang yang tinggal di Malaysia (atau 22.6%) berdarah keturunan Cina. Kumpulan ini terdiri dari beberapa kumpulan sub-etnik dan setiap satu dengan dialeknya tersendiri seperti Hokkien, Kantonis, Hakka dan Teochew.

 

Berbagai-bagai Dialek Cina di Malaysia

CHI08a - 1a

 

Dialek Hokkien

Terdapat dua varuasu kepada dialek Hokkien yang dituturkan di Malaysia: Hokkien Pulau Pinang dan Hokkien Selatan Malaysia. Hokkien Pulau Pinang berasal dari bandar Zhangzhou di China dan menyelitkan penggunaan perkataan Melayu dan Inggeris. Hokkien Selatan Malaysia pula berasaskan sebuah dialek yang dituturkan oleh orang-orang di bandar Quanzhou di China. Kebanyakan daripada perkataan dari Hokkien Pulau Pinang dan Hokkien Selatan Malaysia mempunyai persamaan antara satu sama lain, dan disebabkan itu, kedua-dua dialek kerap dirujuk sebagai Hokkien sahaja.

Hokkien Pulau Pinang kebanyakkannya digunakan oleh orang Cina Malaysia yang tinggal di negeri-negeri utara Semenanjung Malaysia, seperti Pulau Pinang, Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan, Terengganu dan bandar Taiping, Perak. Mereka yang tinggal di bahagian selatan Semenanjung Malaysia, seperti di bandar-bandar di Kalang, Melaka, Johor dan Kuching, mereka biasanya bertutur dalam dialek Hokkien Selatan Malaysia.

 

Dialek Kantonis

Dialek Kantonis merupakan cariasi kepada bahasa China yang berasal dari wilaya Guangzhou di tenggara China. Kantonis digunakan oleh kaum Cina Malaysia yng tinggal di kawasan tengah Semenanjung Malaysia, di bandar-bandar seperti Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Seremban, Ipoh, Kampar dan Kuantan. Di samping itu, dialek Kantonis juga biasa ditutur di Daerah Sandakan di Sabah dan Daerah Mersing di Johor.

 

Dialek Hakka dan Teochew

Dialek Hakka agak serupa dengan bahasa Gan berbanding dengan bahasa Mandarin. Hakka ditutur oleh kaum Cina Malaysia yang tinggal di daerah-daerah utama di Sabah, seperti Kota Belud, Kota Kinabalu, Papar, Marudu, Kuna, Lahad Datu, Semporna dan banyak lagi. Sebaliknya, Teochew adalah dialek yang berasal dari timur Guandong, dan diturutkan oleh kaum Cina Malaysia yang tinggal di ibu negeri Johor, Johor Bahru.

 

Agama kaum Cina Malaysia

CHI09

Hampir 86% kaum Cina Malaysia mengamalkan pemujaan leluhur, Buddhisme Mahayana, dan kehidupan seharian mereka sering dipengaruhi oleh falsafah Confucianisme. 11% daripada kaum Cina menganuti agama Kristian sementara baki yang lainnya ateis, beragama Islam, Hindu ataupun menganuti agama-agama lain.

Seni Bina

Seni bina Cina di Malaysia terdiri daripada gaya tradisional Cina dan juga gaya Baba-Nyonya.

 

Traditional Seni bina Cina

Seni bina tradisional Cina menekankan kepada simetri, ruangan terbuka yang terlingkung, reka bentuk berdasarkan kepentingan tatatingkat, penegasan mendatar dan mematuhi prinsip kosmologi. Sebuah bangunan tradisional Cina mengekalkan simetri dan keseimbangan dengan menggabungkan ruang-ruang kosong yang dilingkungi oleh bangunan-bangunan yang bersambung dengan satu sama lain, sama ada secara terus atau menggunakan beranda. Tatatingkat juga penting dalam kompleks bangunan tradisional Cina, dan ditunjukkan dengan peletakan sesebuah bangunan dan kedudukan pintu-pintu.

Sebagai contoh, sebuah bangunan dengan pintu yang mengadap ke depan adalah lebih penting berbanding sebuah bangunan dengan pintu di sebelah tepi. Di samping itu, sebuah kompleks bangunan tradisional Cina mematuhi konsep kosmologi Cina seperti feng shui dan Taoisme dengan menggunakan simbol-simbol kekayaan dan kemakmuran, seperti buah-buahan dan haiwan seperti katak berkaki tiga. Berikut adalah senarai beberapa bangunan yang mematuhi seni bina tradisional Cina di Malaysia:

Tokong Thean Hou

Tokong Thean Hou didedikasikan kepada dewi lautan Cina, Mazu, dan terletak di Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Pembinaan tokong ini selesai pada tahun 1987, dan perasmiannya diadakan pada tahun 1989.

Seni bina Baba-Nyonya

Merentasi beberapa abad, kebudayaan Peranakan telah menciptakan gaya seni bina mereka sendiri yang unik. Salah satunya cirinya adalah penggunaan balai menyambut tetamu, balai leluhur, bilik tidur biasa, bilik tidur pengantin, dan dapur. Ciri-ciri unik yang lain adalah seperti lantai berwarna-warni, dan halaman dalam di tengah-tengah rumah untuk memberikan peredaran udara yang baik, membolehkan cahaya semula jadi masuk, dan menggalakkan hubungan sosial antara ahli keluarga. Untuk memahami lebih lanjut tentang gaya seni bina ini, yang dipanggil seni bina Baba-Nyonya, anda boleh mengunjungi Muzium Warisan Baba dan Nyonya di Melaka. Bandaraya Melaka sendiri telah diisytiharkan sebagai tapak Warisan Dunia UNESCO pada tahun 2008.

Bahasa

Malaysia merupakan wadah tumpuan pelbagai latar belakang dan tradisi. Oleh sebab itu, bahasa Melayu, yang merupakan bahasa kebangsaan di Malaysia, banyak dipengaruhi oleh bahasa-bahasa lain, dan banyak perkataan-perkataan Melayu yang mempunyai sebutan yang sama berbanding dengan perkataan dalam bahasa lain. Walaupun kaum Cina ramai di Malaysia, namun kerumitan dialek Cina menyebabkan ia kurang memberi impak ke atas bahasa Melayu berbanding dialek India seperti Hindi dan Tamil. Namun, masih terdapat beberapa perkataan Melayu yang boleh disusur kembali kepada asal usul Cina:

Perayaan kaum Cina Malaysia

CHI13 - 1

 

Tahun Baru Cina

Tahun Baru Cina menandakan permulaan Kalendar Lunar Cina. Perayaan ini dipercayai merupakan acara yang paling disambut ramai dikalangan kaum Cina di seluruh dunia. Ia biasanya disambut antara 21 Januari dan 20 Februari menurut takwim Gregory.

Masyarakat Cina Malaysia kerap menyambut Tahun Baru Cina dengan mengunjungi dan meluangkan masa dengan kaum keluarga untuk berjamu, minum dan bergembira. Lazimnya, anggota keluarga yang sudah berkahwin akan memberikan wang yang diletakkan di dalam sampul berwarna merah yang dipanggil ‘ang pao’ (makna literalnya adalah sampul merah) kepada anggota keluarga yang belum berkahwin. Mereka yang tinggal di luar negara selalunya akan berusaha sedaya upaya untuk pulang ke kampung halaman untuk merayakan Tahun Baru Cina bersama keluarga mereka.

Di Malaysia, terdapat juga sebuah tradisi persembahan Tarian Singa semasa Tahun Baru Cina, terutamanya di hadapan kedai perniagaan milik Cina untuk memangil datang keuntungan dan kekayaan. Kepala singa yang digunakan dalam Tarian Singa Malaysia adalah unik, kerana ia diperbuat daripada rotan dan bukan buluh seperti tradisinya. Malaysia mengekspot kepala singa yang diperbuat dari rotan ke seluruh dunia.

Sambutan Tahun Baru Cina lazimnya berlangsung sehingga 15 hari setiap tahun. Dalam waktu itu, sahabat handai dan kaum keluarga berkumpul bersama untuk berjamu dan melambungkan Yee Sang; sejenis salad berwarna-warni mengikut gaya Teochew yang mengandungi isi ikan mentah, sayur-sayuran yang dicincang, dan sos khas, dengan menggunakan penyepit sebagai perlambangan kekayaan dan tuah yang akan mereka terima untuk tahun yang mendatang.

Di kalangan masyarakat Cina Hokkien Malaysia, terdapat juga adat resam untuk bersembahyang kepada Maharaja Jed, pada hari kesembilan Tahun Baru Cina. Mereka mengucapkan terima kasih kepadanya kerana melindungi dan menyelamatkan nenek moyang mereka sewaktu serangan oleh puak Mancu pada tahun 1652, dengan menawarkan persembahan tebu kepadanya. Satu lagi amalan yang unik kepada masyarakat Cina Malaysia ialah sambutan Hari Kekasih versi Cina, yang diadakan pada hari terakhir sambutan Tahun Baru, dan telah disambut oleh masyarakat di Pulau Pinang sejak 100 tahun. Pada hari itu, gadis-gadis yang belum berkahwin akan melontarkan buah oren mandarin yang tertulis nama mereka (dan pada zaman moden) nombor telefon, ke dalam sungai untuk mewakili hajat mereka untuk mencari suami yang sesuai. Pemuda yang masih tidak berkahwin pula, akan melontarkan pisang ke dalam sungai untuk mewakili hajat mereka untuk mencari isteri.

Masyarakat Cina beragama Buddha, memberi persembahan setanggi dan makanan kepada yang mati di atas altar, atau membakar rumah, kereta, telefon bimbit, mainan, jam tangan dan barang-barang lain ‘alam baqa’, yang diperbuat dari kertas untuk kegunaan nenek moyang mereka di alam seterusnya.

Pesta Perahu Naga

CHI21-1

Pesta Perahu Naga, atau juga dikenali sebagai Pesta Duanwu, diadakan untuk memberi penghormatan kepada seorang cendiakawan bersejarah Cina, bernama Qu Yuan, yang dengan penuh berani telah melemaskan dirinya sendiri pada tahun 278 S.M. untuk menyuarakan kekecewaannya terhadap kerajaan yang korupsi. Lagenda menceritakan para nelayan mencari mayatnya dengan menaiki perahu, dan melontarkan bebola nasi ke dalam air untuk mencegah ikan-ikan dari memakan tubuh Qu Yuan. Para nelayan itu kemudiannya meletakkan nasi di dalam batang buluh sebelum melontarkannya ke dalam laut sebagai cara untuk memberitahu naga sungai tempatan bahawa nasi itu disediakan untuk Qu Yuan dan bukannya naga tersebut. Pesta Perahu Naga diadakan pada hari kelima dalam bulan kemia menurut Kalendar Lunar Cina.

Semenjak zaman Dinasti Tang (tahun 265-419 S.M.), Pesta Perahu Naga telah diraikan dengan perlumbaan perahu naga yang telah dilukis dan dihias indah dengan kepala naga di haluan perahu, seolah-olah keseluruhan perahu itu merupakan seekor naga. Perlumbaan perahu ini adalah untuk mengingati para nelayan yang telah berdayung di sungai untuk mencari mayat Qu Yuan.

Ia juga merupakan masa untuk menikmati ladu pulut berbentuk segitiga yang dibalut dengan daun buluh, yang dipanggil zongzi. Di bahagian tengah zongzi seringkali diisi inti daging atau sayuran.

Tokoh-tokoh terkenal berketurunan Cina

CHI 38a - Famous Malaysian Personalities

 

Tokoh Sejarah

Kapitan China Chung Keng Quee (1821 – 1901)

CHI38 - new

Chung Keng Quee telah dilahirkan di vila Xin Cun di daerah Cheng Sheng di Guandong, China kepada sebuah keluarga petani suku Hakka. Dia telah mengembara ke Tanah Melayu British pada tahun 1841 untuk memenuhi hajat ibunya untuk mencari bapa dan abangnya yang hilang. Chung Keng Quee akhirnya menetap di Tanah Melayu British selepas menemui bapa dan abangnya, yang telah berjaya menajalankan perniagaan di negara ini. Dia menjadi jutawan dermawan yang terkenal; membawa pembaharuan dalam industri perlombongan bijih timah, and menjadi ketua kepada sebuah persatuan rahsia Cina di Tanah Melayu British bernama Hai San. Beliau kemudiannya telah mengasaskan dan mentadbir bandar Taiping di Perak, dan telah dilantik oleh pihak British untuk menjadi seorang Kapitan Cina pada tahun 1877, satu jawatan penting yang diberi kepada ketua komuniti Cina di Asia Tenggara.

 

Kapitan Cina Yap Ah Loy (1837 – 1885)

CHI39

Yap Ah Loy telah dilahirkan pada 14 Mac, 1837 kepada sebuah keluarga Cina Hakka di Guandong, China. Pada tahun 1854, Yap Ah Loy telah belayar ke British Malaya melalui Macau. Walaupun dia mendapati tempat itu sangat menarik kerana ia kelihatan sangat berbeza dari kampung halamannya namun dia ingin pulang ke China. Namun takdir tidak disangka-
sangka, kerana dia telah kehilangan wangnya dan tidak dapat pulang. Sebaliknya dia bekerja sebagai seorang pelombong bijih timah dan peniaga kecil-kecilan. Untunglah, kawan baiknya, Liu Ngim Kong, telah menjadi Kapitan Cina yang kedua bagi Kuala Lumpur pada tahun 1862. Yap Ah Loy bekerja dengan Liu Ngim Kong sebagai orang kepercayaannya dan kemudiannya telah menggantikannya sebagai Kapitan Cina yang ketiga bagi Kuala Lumpur dan telah memantau peneroka Cina di kawasan itu. Sewaktu pentadbirannya, dia telah menyokong seorang pemerintah tempatan bernama Tunku Kudin di dalam Perang Saudara Selangor dari tahun 1867 hingga 1873. Di samping itu, dia juga merupakan seorang ahli perniagaan dengan pelbagai kepentingan yang telah berjaya mengumpulkan sejumlah harta kekayaan yang besar. Yap Ah Loy telah dihargai kerana membangunkan kawasan-kawasan moden Kuala Lumpur, seperti di Brickfields.

    Interesting biography of a great and influential Gelug religious lady……the Lady Lhalu Lhacham Yangdzom Tsering, who was one of the most popular and also an important aristocratic students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. She was one of the influential Gelug religious figures in the Lhasa at that time. The Lhacham’s devotion to the controversial protector deity Dorje Shugden whose practice she received from Kyabje Phabongkha Rinpoche is beautifully reflected in her deep spiritual conviction in the very deities and practices. Interesting read of a GREAT spiritual lady of how she struggles in life and never gave up her commitments to her guru Kyabje Pabongka Dorjechang. Her dertermination, motivation and inspiration are indeed incredible .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu.

    Sakya Pandita is believed to have been an emanation of Manjushri and just like other great beings, when he was born, several auspicious signs appeared such as at the time of his birth, the sky was awash with a great light, a certain special physical marks on his body etc.

    It is very impressive that he learned to read both Sanskrit and Tibetan scripts without being taught. On one incident, Shakyashri Bhadra was giving teachings in Sanskrit but Sakya Pandita was seen referring to a Tibetan text. Nevertheless, Sakya Pandita was still able to understand his guru’s teachings perfectly. Besides, During the 13-day debate between Sakya Pandita and Harinanda (the six non-Buddhist Indian pandits) and Harinanda could not win the argument. Finally, Harinanda said, “It is not you I cannot defeat, it is the orange being sitting above your right shoulder.” This showed that Sakya Panidita is no different from Manjushri.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this meaningful post.

    The Body of a Buddha: A Road Map to Liberation

    In Buddhism, we often pray to the statues or representations of the Buddha. Many people said that we are idolistic but actually we are praying to the virtues and good quality that Buddha’s body represents. We do not pray to the statue just because it is in the form of a Buddha, we pray because we wish to achieve the same qualities of the body that manifested into these signs.

    The Buddha’s body consists of 112 marks where 32 of them are major signs and 80 minor signs. Each and every one of these signs represent the virtues that Buddha had practised over 3 great aeons to achieve what he is today, enlightened.

    Every single one of the signs is the guideline for us to practice. For example, the dharma wheel at the bottom of Buddha’s feet means that we should have the selfless attitude when we serve other and one of the best ways is to teach them Dharma. The Buddha has said, the best gift is the gift of Dharma.

    Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing about this incredible lady with us. She is very inspiring and she showed us that with her unwavering guru devotion towards Kyabe Pabongkha Rinpoche bears fruit when she attained high attainments and stayed in Tukdam for 3 days when she passes away.

    Lady Lhalu is incredible because being an aristocrat, she enjoyed a life of leisure. However, that did not deter her from a life of spirituality. She was one of Pabongkha Rinpoche’s main sponsor that time and she was the one who requested the teachings of the famous 24 days Lamrim teachings which proven to be very beneficial when Trijang Rinpoche compiled notes on the teachings and published them later as a book called Lamrim.

    Until today, this book is still being used by Buddhist centres all over the world. Here in Kechara, we too used this book as the main reference in our Dharma classes and the profound teaching has benefited alot of people.

    Read more about Lady Lhalu here:

    Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe after people die, the consciousness will take rebirth again and again. The consciousness can take rebirth as a human, animal, ghost or god. It all depends on the karma. In the US, Dr. Brain Weiss, who is a prominent psychiatrist and a leading reincarnation researcher found pieces of evidence to prove reincarnation does exist.

    The bigger the Buddha statue is, the better it is, because more beings can be blessed by seeing the Buddha statue. Not only that, dharma seeds will be planted in the mind of those who see the Buddha statue as well. It is said that a big outdoor Buddha statue can help to calm the surrounding environment and pacify natural disasters. We have some big outdoor statues in Malaysia too. If you have not heard of them, do read the article below to learn more.

    Guava is a very common fruit in Malaysia, they can be found easily in the markets and supermarkets. They might not look very attractive, but they are full of goodness for our health. Some of the benefits of Guava including relieving diarrhea & dysentery, acting as an effective laxative, boosting our immunity, just to name a few.

    Shocking to know the history of the American-Japanese during the WWII in 1942, where discrimination did happened at that time. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people is really sad. Rinpoche did experienced the share of discrimination within the Kalmyk community in New Jersey years back. Looks like it happen every now and then in our society. Many thousands of Japanese Americans suffered badly , sent into interior camps, land, housing, businesses and lives were all taken away. Thanks to the photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. who has been tracking down wartime pictures. Looking through pictures, paints a thousand words of sorrow, suffering those Japanese Americans had gone through. Even what they went through , they did not give up but made them stronger in fact to be what they are today. They were citizens of American yet it was an injustice to them. There are similarities happening to those who practiced Dorje Shugden. The practitioners were denied services to schools, medical treatment, hotel and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Beautifully done.

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.

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

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

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

    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
