Saya telah menetap di Malaysia selama lebih 20 tahun. Selama itu, saya menikmati budaya dan adat resam yang wujud di Malaysia, yang mana telah memberi inspirasi kepada saya untuk berkongsi dengan lebih lagi mengenai aspek-aspek Malaysia yang saya sangat sukai.

Salah satu contohnya ialah Pesta Perahu Naga, yang berasal dari China tetapi telah diserapkan ke dalam budaya Malaysia. Penyerapan budaya ini membuktikan sifat kepelbagaian etnik di dalam populasi Malaysia. Keupayaan untuk merangkul pelbagai adat resam adalah faktor Malaysia sangat kaya dengan identiti budayanya.

Dengan itu, saya berbesar hati menukil artikel mengenai Pesta Perahu Naga, asal-usulnya, bagaimana adat resam ini diasimilasikan ke dalam budaya Malaysia dan bagaimana masyarakat mengambil bahagian dalam pesta ini. Artikel ini juga mengandungi maklumat mengenai zongzi, bebola pulut, yang sangat berkait rapat dengan Pesta Perahu Naga.

Asal-usul Pesta Perahu Naga

The Dragon Boat Race

Perlumbaan Perahu Naga

Pesta Perahu Naga atau Longchuanjie juga dikenali sebagai Tuen Ng, Pesta Duanwu atau Pesta Zhongxiao. Pesta ini dikatakan diadakan bagi meraikan kesetiaan kepada negara dan ketaatan kepada ibu bapa. Secara tradisionalnya, pesta ini disambut pada hari kelima bulan kelima mengikut kalendar Cina. Atas sebab itu, tarikh pesta berbeza dari tahun ke tahun apabila merujuk kalendar Gregory.

Pesta Perahu Naga juga dikenali dengan nama ‘Pesta Bulan Kelima’ atau ‘Dumpling Festival’ di kalangan masyarakat Cina Malaysia, Cina Singapura dan masyarakat Taiwan. Di kalangan komuniti etnik Cina Hokkien, pesta ini juga dikenali sebagai Peh Cun.

Terdapat tiga versi cerita yang mengisahkan asal-usul Pesta Perahu Naga. Ketiga-tiga cerita ini mempunyai pengakhiran tragis yang sama dan memberi iktibar untuk kita renungkan.

 

Versi 1: Lagenda Qu Yuan (340-278 SM) – Bangsawan yang Baik Hati

Kisah Qu Yuan merupakan kisah asal-usul Pesta Perahu Naga yang paling diterima secara meluas. Qu Yuan ialah seorang bangsawan yang baik hati dari negeri Chu pada zaman China purba dan berdasarkan rekod pakar sejarah terulung Sima Qian, beliau berketurunan kerabat diraja Chu. Pada awalnya, beliau menjadi menteri semasa pemerintahan Raja Chu Huai yang memegang tampuk antara 328-299 SM. Atas pengaruh beberapa menteri yang mengamalkan rasuah, Raja Huai membuang Qu Yuan ke daerah utara Sungai Han. Beliau kemudiannya kembali ke jawatan asalnya dan ditugaskan untuk menjalinkan hubungan diplomatik antara negeri Chu dan negeri Qi, sebuah kerajaan jiran.

Selepas Raja Huai mangkat, penggantinya Raja Qingxian menaiki takhta. Atas ramalan bahawa negeri Qin akan menyerang negeri Chu, Qu Yuan menasihati raja untuk menyertai bala tentera dari negeri Qi untuk melawan mereka. Perdana Menteri pada ketika itu, Zilan tidak gembira dengan usul tersebut dan mencari jalan untuk menghasut Raja Qingxian untuk menentang Qu Yuan. Raja mendengar nasihat Perdana Menteri dan Qu Yuan sekali lagi dibuang negeri, kali ini ke daerah selatan Sungai Yangtze.

Ketika di dalam buangan, Qu Yuan memenuhi masanya dengan mengumpul kisah-kisah lama dan lagenda, juga menulis sajak mengenai kecintaan beliau kepada negaranya. Kini, beberapa hasil karyanya dianggap sebagai antara sajak teragung dalam kesusasteraan Cina.

Penduduk kampung menghormati Qu Yuan kerana mereka melihat beliau sebagai seorang yang bijak dan baik hati. Namun begitu, Qu Yuan tetap risau jika ramalannya mengenai serangan ke atas negeri Chu bakal menjadi kenyataan dan kerisauan ini mengganggu kesihatannya.

General Bai Qi from the state of Qin

Jeneral Bai Qi dari negeri Qin

Pada 278 SM, mimpi ngeri Qu Yuan menjadi kenyataan. Jeneral Bai Qi dari negeri Qin telah menawan Ying, ibu negeri Chu. Setelah mendengar berita tersebut, Qu Yuan menulis sajak berjudul ‘Ratapan buat Ying’ dan membunuh dirinya dengan terjun ke dalam Sungai Miluo yang terletak di Wilayah Hunan, China. Apabila mereka mendengar berita mengenai kejadian tersebut, penduduk kampung tempatan bergegas ke Sungai Miluo untuk cuba menyelamatkan beliau. Mereka mencari beliau dengan perahu mereka dan memalu dram mereka dalam keadaan terdesak demi menyelamatkan Qu Yuan. Pencarian yang sukar dan tidak keruan ini yang menjadi asal-usul Pesta Perahu Naga.

Ketika pencarian jasad Qu Yuan, penduduk kampung membaling bebola nasi ke dalam sungai untuk menghalau roh jahat dan makhluk di dalam sungai jauh dari jasad beliau. Tidak lama selepas itu, Qu Yuan muncul di dalam mimpi rakannya untuk menjelaskan situasi sekitar kematiannya dan meminta rakannya untuk membalut bebola nasi tersebut di dalam bungkusan sutera yang mempunyai tiga penjuru untuk menenangkan naga. Rakan Qu Yuan menyebarkan berita tersebut dan bermulalah tradisi pembuatannya dan penyembahan bungkusan nasi tiga penjuru kepada naga pada hari kelima bulan kelima kalendar Cina. Kini, bungkusan nasi tiga penjuru tersebut dibalut dengan daun dan dikenali sebagai zongzi.

Versi 2: Wu Zixu (tidak diketahui – 484 SM) – Bangsawan yang Dipulaukan oleh Ketuanya

Di dalam rekod pakar sejarah Sima Qian, Wu Xizu juga dikenali sebagai Wizurai Shen atau Shen Xu. Sebagai penasihat yang dipercayai oleh Raja Wu Helu, beliau mencadangkan kenaikan pangkat buat Bo Pi sebagai menteri, walaupun terdapat amaran berkenaan sifat tidak jujur beliau. Selepas kemangkatan Raja Helu, Wu Xizu tidak dapat menjalin hubungan baik dengan Raja Fuchai. Dengan ramalan bahawa Raja Yue Goujian pada suatu hari nanti akan menyerang negeri Wu, Wu Zixu menasihati Raja Fuchai untuk menawan negeri Yue sebelum ramalan tersebut menjadi kenyataan. Tetapi Raja tidak mempercayai beliau. Lebih malang lagi, Raja Fuchai memilih untuk mendengar nasihat Bo Pi, yang menyarankan keamanan di antara kedua-dua kerajaan tanpa mengetahui bahawa Bo Pi telah dirasuah oleh Raja Yue Goujian untuk memanipulasikan keadaan.

King Fuchai of Wu

Raja Wu Fuchai

Wu Zixu merayu agar Raja Fuchai menuruti nasihatnya tetapi ianya hanya membuahkan kemarahannya. Raja memberi Wu Xizu sebilah pedang dan mengarahkannya membunuh diri. Sebelum beliau mati, Wu Zixu meminta agar matanya dikeluarkan selepas kematianya dan diletakkan di pintu masuk bandar supaya beliau dapat melihat ramalannya menjadi kenyataan. Namun, Raja Fuchai memerintahkan jasad Wu Zixu dicampakkan ke dalam sungai pada hari kelima bulan kelima. Kira-kira 10 tahun selepas kematiannya, ramalannya menjadi kenyataan. Raja Yue Goujian menyerang dan menawan negeri Wu ketika Raja Fuchai sedang berperang dengan negeri Qi. Kerana terdesak, Raja Fuchai membunuh diri dengan mata tertutup kerana malu untuk bertemu dengan Wu Zixu di alam selepas mati. Ironiknya, Raja Goujian menahan Bo Pi atas tuduhan mengkhianati Raja Fuchai dan menerima rasuah daripada pembesar luar. Sehingga kini, Wu Zixu diingati ketika Pesta Perahu Naga, terutamanya di wilayah tengah pantai timur di China.

 

Versi 3: Cao (130-143 Masihi) Anak Gadis yang Kehilangan Bapanya

An artist's portrayal of Cao E

Lakaran potret Cao E

Cao E ialah anak perempuan seorang pawang yang bernama Cao Xu. Suatu hari ketika beliau sedang melangsungkan upacara amal untuk memperingati memori Wu Zixu, Cao Xu terjatuh ke dalam Sungai Shun. Dengan perasaan luluh, Cao E mencari jasad bapanya selama berhari-hari. Lima hari selepas insiden tersebut, kedua-dua jasad Cao E dan Cao Xu dijumpai di dalam sungai tersebut.

Lapan tahun kemudian, orang tempatan membina sebuah tokong di Shangyu bagi memperingati tindakan Cao E sebagai tanda taat kepada orang tua dan Sungai Shun dinamakan Sungai Cao E bagi memperingatinya. Pengorbanan Cao E dikenang ketika Pesta Perahu Naga, terutamanya di Timur Laut Zhejiang, China.

Terdapat perdebatan bahawa kesemua lagenda tersebut dihebahkan oleh cendekiawan Konfusius ketika Zaman China Imperial atas sebab ingin meningkatkan pengaruh mereka. Menurut Professor Wen Yiduo, seorang cendekiawan Cina abad ke-20, Pesta Perahu Naga sebenarnya berasal daripada tradisi penyembahan naga. Perlumbaan Perahu Naga melambangkan tanda penghormatan kepada naga, simbolik kepada tenaga maskulin yang aktif di dunia manakala zongzi digunakan sebagai makanan pelawaan untuk Raja Naga. Oleh kerana masyarakat China purba sangat bergantung kepada aktiviti pertanian untuk hidup, cuaca memainkan peranan yang penting. Naga dikatakan mempunyai keupayaan untuk mengawal cuaca dan atas sebab tu memberi kesan langsung kepada produktiviti pertanian negeri. Dengan memastikan naga gembira, cuaca akan menjadi baik, dan dengan itu membawa kepada hasil tuaian yang banyak bagi kelangsungan hidup masyarakat setempat. Naga sebagai simbol sangat meluas digunakan di kedua-dua negeri Wu dan Yue. Menurut Professor Wen Yiduo, Pesta Perahu Naga merupakan adat resam yang unik buat Wu dan Yue tetapi lama kelamaan menjadi popular ke seluruh China.

Tidak kira bagaimana dan mengapa kisah-kisah lagenda tersebut dihebahkan, Pesta Perahu Naga terus berkembang sehingga ke hari ini.

 

Bagaimana Pesta Ini Diserapkan di Malaysia

Malaysia is a multi-ethnic country that embraces its diverse cultural identity

Malaysia ialah sebuah negara pelbagai etnik yang merangkul pelbagai identiti budaya. Ke mana sahaja orang Cina mengembara, sama ada untuk tujuan dagangan, ekonomi atau sebab lain, mereka membawa budaya dan tradisi mereka bersama.

Menurut Jabatan Statistik Malaysia, populasi orang Cina antara tahun 2014 hingga 2016 dianggarkan sebanyak 23.4%. Ia mencecah suku daripada populasi rakyat Malaysia. Adalah sesuatu yang tidak mengejutkan apabila Pesta Perahu Naga telah disambut secara meluas di kalangan pelbagai komuniti di Malaysia termasuk keturunan pendatang Cina.

Kerajaan Malaysia telah menerima Pesta Perahu Naga sebagai temasya penting yang menggalakkan keharmonian bangsa. Badan Promosi Pelancongan Malaysia, sebuah subsidiari Kementerian Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan Malaysia telah meletakkan Perlumbaan Perahu Naga di dalam terbitan Temasya dan Pesta Malaysia. Badan Promosi Pelancongan Malaysia telah mengiktiraf Perlumbaan Perahu Naga sebagai:

“… sukan fokus kumpulan yang menggalakkan disiplin, harmoni, kekuatan fizikal dan ketahanan mental… (dan) sukan yang dihormati di mana ia menyemai keharmonian bangsa.”

 

Aktiviti-aktiviti

Traditional Chinese families gather together every year to make zongzi

Keluarga tradisi Cina berkumpul bersama pada setiap tahun untuk membuat zongzi

 

Memasak dan Menjamu Bebola Pulut

Keluarga tradisi Cina berkumpul bersama pada setiap tahun untuk membuat zongzi. Selain menganjurkan, menyertai dan menyaksikan perlumbaan Perahu Naga, komuniti Cina Malaysia menyambut Pesta Perahu Naga dengan membuat dan menjamu zongzi. Tradisi ini memperingati masa ketika orang kampung pada zaman China purba melontar bebola nasi ke dalam sungai bagi menenangkan naga dan makhluk sungai, untuk melindungi jasad Menteri Qu Yuan.

Oleh sebab popularitinya, zongzi telah berkembang daripada sejenis ketupat nasi ringkas yang disaluti daun buluh, kepada zongzi yang mengandungi pelbagai jenis inti. Pada masa lalu, zongzi hanya boleh didapati semasa Pesta Perahu Naga. Kini, zongzi boleh didapati sepanjang tahun di tempat-tempat yang mempunyai populasi kaum Cina yang agak ramai. Bentuk zongzi berbeza mengikut tempat, namun secara umumnya zongi dibuat dalam bentuk tiga penjuru. Dalam sebuah keluarga tradisi Cina yang tipikal, membuat zongzi merupakan amalan keluarga. Semua ahli keluarga terlibat dalam proses pembuatannya. Walaupun daun buluh selalunya digunakan sebagai pembalut, daun-daun lain seperti daun jagung, daun pisang dan daun pandan, juga boleh digunakan untuk membalut bebola nasi. Setiap daun memberi rasa dan aroma yang berbeza pada hidangan zongzi ini.

Zongzi berbalut daun pisang

One of the secrets to a good zongzi is wrapping it well enough so that the contents stay intact after the boiling process

Salah satu rahsia zongzi yang elok ialah membalutnya dengan cukup bagus bagi memastikan isi di dalamnya kekal melekat selepas proses pendidihan

Inti zongzi mungkin berbeza mengikut cita rasa masing-masing, walau bagaimanapun beras pulut selalunya akan digunakan. Membalut zongzi adalah satu bentuk seni tersendiri. Tukang masak dianggap berjaya membuat zongzi apabila nasi dan isinya kekal melekat ketika zongzi dididihkan. Selalunya, resipi dan kemahiran membalut zongzi diturunkan kepada pelbagai generasi dalam keluarga.

Pada hari sebelum Pesta Perahu Naga, keluarga tradisi Cina menawarkan zongzi kepada nenek moyang dan dewa-dewa mereka sebagai tanda penghormatan sebelum mereka sendiri menjamu zongzi.

Zongzi dikenali sebagai Chang di Malaysia. Terdapat beberapa jenis Chang yang selalunya ada di Malaysia:

  • Bak Chang: Bak Chang lazimnya mengandungi daging khinzir dengan kuning telur masin, buah berangan, udang kering, dan cendawan, bergantung kepada cita rasa masing-masing. Nasinya selalunya berwarna perang.
  • Kiam Tee Chang (ketupat nasi pulut Nyonya): Kiam Tee Chang dianggap sebagai keistimewaan kaum Cina Malaysia. Kiam Tee Chang selalunya mengandungi daging khinzir cincang dan labu air bersama lima rempah dan lada.
  • Kee Chang: Pulut biasa dengan air beralkali. Ia selalunya dimakan bersama gula atau air gula dan dianggap sebagai pemanis mulut.

    The Rain Stopper

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

    It is extremely worrying to know that parts of America such as Texas and Florida are experiencing the impact of powerful hurricanes. The horrendous natural disasters have destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, offices and facilities in these areas. Sadly however, during such disasters, animals are often the first ones to be left behind, and saving the life of a human takes precedence over the life of an animal. The same thing happened during the recent Hurricane Harvey in Florida. But this time around, what was most disturbing was the fact that animals were left behind to die during the disaster.

    The helpless animals, such as dogs in this case, have had to suffer immensely during the storms. As can be seen in the article, there is an uproar regarding dogs being tied up during the hurricanes which made it impossible for them to escape. In fact, the authorities may have encouraged people to leave their pets behind in some areas, but they should not have been tied up and left to suffer from the strong winds and rain. No one wants to be put in such a position, and neither do animals.

    The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported sightings of Lizard Man vary from scaly humans to large bipedal lizards, small dinosaurs and everything else in-between.

    It is no surprise that many theories have been put forward in an attempt to crystallise the undefined nature and origin of the Lizard Man. Essentially, there are two leading theories – one based on evolution and the other on extra-terrestrials.

    Buddha Shakyamuni gave three reasons as to why He had chosen Kushinagar (in today’s northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh) to pass away:

    It was the proper venue for teaching the Maha-Sudassana Sutra (Story of the Great King of Glory).
    Subhadda, whom Buddha Shakyamuni felt still needed to be given teachings, was there. Subhadda consequently became the last monk to be ordained by Buddha Shakyamuni; upon meditating on the teachings received directly from the Buddha, he swiftly became an arhat (perfected) and entered Parinirvana shortly before Buddha Shakyamuni.
    Buddha Shakyamuni foresaw that His disciples would argue over the sharing of His relics. He wanted Doha, a wise and respected old Brahmin of Kushinagar, to mediate the disciples’ disagreements.

    On June 21, 2015, Kechara had the privilege and great merits to witness an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche briefly describes here the history and background of trances, and what happened on the day itself.

    For the first time in history, a Tibetan oracle had the invocation done for the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to enter or take trance, and there were no Tibetan monks involved. It was all local, lay Malaysians who did the invocation. Our people practiced very hard and diligently with a lot of sincerity and commitment for many weeks, to do the chanting, to learn the rituals and to ensure the procedure was done right. And everything was a great success.

    On the fateful day as preordained, we escorted Chojela to the prayer hall where there were 700 people (by invitation only) waiting to witness and to get blessings of the trance. We then assisted him in dressing in the correct regalia of the official oracle, including the hat and the boots. The instruments of trance such as the sword and spears were nearby along with the noose. The invocation was done and Dorje Shugden entered very smoothly into the oracle. He immediately got up as per tradition and did a very special Vajra dance in our prayer hall, which is the dance of clearing the obstacles.

    The crow pheasant is a beautiful bird, I saw this bird just yesterday. It is good to know that it is a good omen. It somehow gives me an assurance that things will only get better. Sometimes when people are lost and not sure if they have made the right decision, seeing signs like this can really calm people’s mind.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    This is the prayer to Dorje Shugden as composed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Dungkar Monastery of Domo Geshe Rinpoche. It is good to recite daily or when in need of help. You can see in the prayer His Holiness enthrones Dorje Shugden as the “supreme collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities and requests to grant siddhis” (attainments). Ordinary spirits cannot grant siddhis therefore in this prayer, Dalai Lama recognized Dorje Shugden as a superior being who can grant two types of siddhis. Ordinary and extra-ordinary siddhis. His Holiness surely could not be tricked by a spirit. His Holiness saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being embodying the gurus and Protective Deities who can grant two types of siddhis.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub

    Apart from his visions related to Dorje Shugden, Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub is said to have had numerous other mystical experiences. During a stay at Chubzang he had a vision of the sixty-two deity body mandala of Heruka Cakrasamvara, from whom he received the four initiations (dbang bzhi). He was also able to reveal the location of a sacred cave called Takten (rtag brtan) near Chubzang, which is related to Heruka. During a retreat at the Nyang caves (nyang phug) near Samye Monastery (bsam yas), he had a vision of Padmasambhava, his consorts, and his entourage of disciples. Although this may be interpreted as contradictory to the often perceived sectarian nature of this lineage, Padmasambhava appears to have been held in high regard. Trijang Lobzang Tendzin Gyatso, for example, also bestowed Padmasambhava empowerments and related teachings.

    Rob Lowe is a famous actor and celebrity from Hollywood who has starred in such films as St Elmo’s Fire and also the very popular hit TV series The West Wing. Recently he and his sons did a series called The Lowe Files which is something like an X Files series. The family investigates strange happenings, occurrences, mysterious creatures, supernatural lore, unsolved mysteries and the like. Between the three of them, Rob Lowe has previously said that they have varying levels of skepticism. While Rob Lowe is more ready to believe in supernatural phenomenon, his sons profess to be more grounded and skeptical than their father.

    But with a show that focuses on such topics, of course it was only a matter of time that they covered Bigfoot. I was pleasantly surprised to see this episode because not many people, especially famous people, want to be associated with this genre of investigation. Let’s be honest – society thinks that people who investigate things like poltergeists and Bigfoot are generally regarded as a little different and quirky. So for someone who is famous to openly investigate, talk about and be interested in Bigfoot, is good for the field of investigation which is known as cryptozoology.

    Even though John Lennon has passed away but his songs continue to bring positivity in people’s life. Famous people are very influential to the public, some choose to use their fame to give people a positive influence, such as John Lennon. What we want, we have to fight for it and do something to make it happens. If we want peace, we have to start with ourselves, we can’t expect it from other people.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The new analyses indicate the ubiquitous extent of microplastic contamination in the global environment. Previous work has been largely focused on plastic pollution in the oceans, which suggests people are eating microplastics via contaminated seafood.

    Mahon said there were two principal concerns: very small plastic particles and the chemicals or pathogens that microplastics can harbour. “If the fibres are there, it is possible that the nanoparticles are there too that we can’t measure,” she said. “Once they are in the nanometre range they can really penetrate a cell and that means they can penetrate organs, and that would be worrying.

    One of the global fashion powerhouses which is Gucci is going to stop using fur for its fashion in 2018. Not only that but whatever they have remaining which is fur, they will auction off and donate the proceeds to organisations against animal cruelty.

    I was so happy to hear this news! It is good when brands are self-aware and recognise the role they play in providing a demand for these cruel industries. These lead to the suffering of many animals before their painful deaths.

    For such a huge global brand to make this decision must mean there is a demand for cruelty-free fashion, and they know they can remain a viable business even if they don’t offer fur. So it is also good that when consumers apply pressure to other brands, to let them know they will still buy into the clothing even if there is no fur. From the side of the consumer and the side of the producer, both can work together in this way to eradicate fur farms and cruelty to animals.

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.
    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
