Mumu was so sick but NOW HE IS WELL AGAIN!!!!

May 29, 2010 | Views: 530

On May 4, 2009 my little Mumu had been very sick. First he was vomiting food, and then he became lethargic and very weak. He lost his appetite and had to be force-fed. I was very worried so I sent my assistants to bring Mumu to Dr Prem’s Veterinary Clinic in KL. At first the diagnosis was Mumu could have eaten something that upset his stomach. But after two days, Mumu was getting even weaker so we sent him Dr Prem again. Dr Prem did a blood test and concluded that Mumu had pancreatitis (see bottom more for info on pancreatitis), and his enzyme level was alarmingly high, five times higher than normal. It was very urgent so Dr Prem immediately put Mumu on drip, cutting off any food and drink so as not to aggravate the situation. KB was very kind and volunteered to stay with Mumu throughout the night at Dr Prem’s clinic. This was Tuesday. In fact KB lovingly stayed every night at the clinic for four nights to sleep with Mumu to keep him company. Dr Prem generously allowed it as it is not normal procedure.

(Dr Prem is such a loving, caring and a wonderful doctor. He really cares about the animals that come to his clinic. He is so well known here in Kuala Lumpur. The animals and animal owners are so blessed to have Dr Prem here. And he is so experienced in taking care of animals. I highly recommend him please. Dr Prem in his medical expertise saved my Mumu’s life. I am grateful to this great man! Thank you so much Dr Prem. A great Namaste to you!)

On Wednesday, Dr Prem performed an ultrasound on Mumu to check for abscesses or cancer. Thank goodness none was found! Also, Dr Prem concluded that Mumu’s lipid level was normal and he did not have hyperlipidemia which is another cause of pancreatitis.

Many of my students visited Mumu at clinic, Ruby, Elize, Henry and Angel, Adeline, etc…

On Friday morning, the enzyme test results came out and showed that Mumu’s enzyme level was 1449, pretty much back to normal, while it was 9945 when he was admitted on Tuesday. This means Mumu is well again!

Above is Elize together with Dr Prem. I got Mumu from Elize five years ago. She owns a pet shop and she loves dogs. She will not simply sell dogs to people she doesn’t trust will take care of the dogs. Elize owns Mumu’s dad, mom and sister. She loves Mumu also. So her experience was very welcomed and she helped with Mumu at the clinic every day. I appreciate her help very much. Can you imagine, I got Mumu from Elize five years ago, and she comes around to help Mumu get healed!!!! What a great lady!!!!

Inserting the needle for the drip for my Mumu because he can’t eat, very weak, very lethargic, can barely walk around. My poor little innocent Mumu. My poor Mumu. I wish his disease comes to me and he can get well. I would gladly suffer it for my Mumu. My poor dear little Mumu.

My poor sweet Mumu. Although weak and in pain, he never complained and just cooperated all the way. I was so worried, I could not sleep. He stayed still for whatever was done to him. He is such a wonderful and cooperative little guy.

Precious KB sitting in with Mumu and slept in this small space with Mumu for four nights to keep Mumu company!! And to make sure Mumu is ok. So much love, so much compassion, I am so grateful to KB. I didn’t assign him but KB wanted to stay with Mumu. Mumu was very happy to have KB there also. I thank KB so much for his care and love. I am so appreciative.

Mumu was getting better so KB had glasses on my little Mumu as the lights were bright and Mumu is a STAR after all…hehehe. Seriously, here, Mumu was getting better already. Can you see a laptop? Well KB had the webcam on all night so I can see Mumu and how he is from my end. It was KB’s idea and KB is so thoughtful. I couldn’t sleep. I watched Mumu on the webcam all night. It helped a lot.

Dr Prem gently shaves Mumu for an ultrasound. Everything ok except the inflamed pancreas which has since returned to normal!!!

After around two days, Mumu could go back on light solid foods like rice porridge. This is Mumu’s first solid meal after entering the clinic. My poor Mumu was starving even with the drip. When I saw this picture of Mumu eating, I WAS SO RELIEVED AND SO HAPPY.

I thank KB and Beng Kooi (BK) who did everything meticulously when Mumu became seriously ill. With a lot of love, care and focus, they were with Mumu every step of the way until he was healed going through a battery of tests. They meticulously updated me every step of the way. It was frightening to read the SMSes but of course I needed to know what is happening.

Basically BK and KB SAVED MY MUMU’S LIFE because of their care. I can’t thank them enough. Everything that KB and BK does is from their heart. They never rush anything or take anything for granted, they really are CARING, WONDERFUL AND CONSCIENTIOUS PEOPLE. I am lucky to have them. Mumu is lucky to have their love. They are assets to Kechara House.

KB went to Nepal around eight days ago. Tomorrow, on Saturday May 29, 2010 KB is getting married! We congratulate KB very much. After his wedding and a few things to do, he will return. We miss him but we are happy for him. I look forward to his return. Everyone does. So many people love and respect KB!

I had special pujas done at the monastery for Mumu, and he is on a meticulously-planned and careful diet. Mumu enjoys the new food very much. He gobbles it down. Mumu has made a full recovery!!! THANK YOU TO THE THREE JEWELS!!! THANKS TO Dr Prem, KB, BK AND OTHERS WHO HELPED SO MUCH.

Mumu is back with me and sleeping with me nightly and up to his little routines again. How nice. As I type this, Mumu is playing on the balcony with his friend Zamkar with little Oser looking on…hehehehe cute cute cute!

BELOW IS INFORMATION FOR YOU SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE WARNING SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF THIS FATAL SICKNESS THAT CAN REALLY BE DANGEROUS FOR YOUR DOGS, so that you might catch it quick without delay. If the symptoms come up, you must rush to a good clinic, don’t take chances. It was the quick thinking of BK and KB that saved my Mumu’s life. May none of your dogs suffer this fatal sickness or any sickness, ever! Om Mani Peme Hung. May no animals ever suffer anything!

Pancreatitis (Inflammation) in Dogs

Veterinary Services Department, Drs. Foster and Smith, Inc.

Pancreas

The pancreas is a V-shaped organ located behind the stomach and the first section of the small intestine, the duodenum. It has two main functions: it aids in metabolism of sugar in the body through the production of insulin, and is necessary for the digestion of nutrients by producing pancreatic enzymes. These enzymes help the body promote the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. Acute pancreatitis is a sudden onset of pancreatic inflammation.

 

Causes

Multiple factors can contribute to the development of pancreatitis. Certain medications, infections; metabolic disorders including hyperlipidemia (high amounts of lipid in the blood) and hypercalcemia (high amounts of calcium in the blood); obesity; and trauma and shock can be associated with the development of pancreatitis. Middle-aged dogs appear to be at increased risk of developing pancreatitis; as a breed, Schnauzers and Yorkshire terriers appear to be more prone to pancreatitis. Nutrition also plays a role. Dogs with diets high in fat, dogs who have recently gotten in to the trash or have been fed table scraps, or dogs who ‘steal’ or are fed greasy ‘people food’ seem to have a higher incidence of the disease. In addition, dogs who have previously had pancreatitis or abdominal surgery appear to be more at risk.

 

Symptoms

Common symptoms of the acute form of pancreatitis in dogs include a very painful abdomen, abdominal distention, lack of appetite, depression, dehydration, a ‘hunched up’ posture, vomiting, diarrhea and yellow, greasy stool. Fever often accompanies these symptoms. Animals with more severe disease can develop heart arrhythmias, sepsis (body-wide infection), difficulty breathing, and a life-threatening condition called disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), which results in multiple hemorrhages. If the inflammation is severe, organs surrounding the pancreas could be ‘autodigested’ by pancreatic enzymes released from the damaged pancreas and become permanently damaged.

 

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of pancreatitis is made through information obtained from the history, the physical exam, and laboratory testing. Dogs with pancreatitis generally have an increased blood levels of the pancreatic enzymes called amylase and lipase. If the liver also becomes inflamed, liver enzymes as measured in the blood may be increased. A rather new test, serum cPLI (pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity), may prove to be a valuable diagnostic aid. The white blood cell count is generally increased in acute pancreatitis. Radiography (x-rays) and ultrasound can also help in making the diagnosis. biopsy can result in a conclusive diagnosis, but is not commonly performed.

 

Treatment

The goal of treatment is to rest the pancreas, provide supportive care and control complications. If vomiting is severe, treatment usually begins with a withholding of food, water, and oral medications for at least 24 hours. The lack of oral intake stops the stimulation of the pancreas to produce digestive enzymes. Depending upon the animal’s response food intake can be started again after a day or more. The pet is generally fed small meals of a bland, easily digestible, high-carbohydrate, low-fat food. Over the course of a week or more, the size of meals and quantity of food fed are increased. The dog may need to stay on a special diet for life, or it may be possible to gradually reintroduce the former diet. High-fat diets or treats should be avoided.

The second major component of treatment is fluid therapy. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances are common in dogs with acute pancreatitis, and water intake is often restricted so fluid therapy is usually needed. Fluids are either given subcutaneously or intravenous.

Dogs who are experiencing severe pain can be treated with pain relievers such as meperidine or butorphanol. Antibiotics are often administered prophylactically to protect against infection.

If the pancreatitis was caused by a medication, the medication should be stopped. If it was caused by a toxin, infection, or other condition, the appropriate therapy for the underlying condition should be started.

In rare instances where there are intestinal complications or the development of a pancreatic abscess, surgery may be necessary.

 

Long-term management and prognosis

Pancreatitis can be a very unpredictable disease. In most cases, if the pancreatitis was mild and the pet only had one episode, chances of recovery are good and avoiding high fat foods may be all that is necessary to prevent recurrence or complications. In other cases, what appears to be a mild case may progress, or may be treated successfully only to have recurrences, sometimes severe.

Dogs with severe pancreatitis can recover, but may also develop fatal complications. The risk of developing fatal pancreatitis is increased in dogs who are overweight, or have diabetes mellitus, hyperadrenocorticism, hypothyroidism, gastrointestinal tract disease, and epilepsy. Pets who have repeated bouts of pancreatitis may need to be fed low-fat diets to prevent recurrence. Even so, some animals develop chronic pancreatitis, which can lead to diabetes mellitus and/or pancreatic insufficiency, also called ‘maldigestion syndrome.’

In pancreatic insufficiency, the nutrients in food are passed out in the feces undigested. An animal with this disease often has a ravenous appetite, diarrhea, and weight loss. Even though he is eating, he could literally starve to death. Treatment for pancreatic insufficiency is lifelong and expensive, but is possible. The pet’s digestive enzymes are replaced through a product processed from pancreases of hogs and cattle which contain large quantities of the digestive enzymes. A change in diet with added nutritional supplements may also be necessary.

 

Summary

Acute pancreatitis can be a life-threatening condition, and early recognition and treatment can improve chances of recovery. In dogs, fever, lack of appetite, depression and vomiting are the most common signs. Treatment is based upon reducing or stopping all oral intake to rest the pancreas, correcting the dehydration and maintaining proper fluid and electrolyte balances, and treating any complications or underlying conditions.

    Rinpoche cares for all equally be they his students or his pets, and shows his gratitude for acts of kindness by all towards Mumu. As most mothers feel for their children, Rinpoche practices compassion and tonglen in wishing to bear the burden of pain and discomfort for Mumu.

    Thank you for being the example for us all to follow in our daily lives and interaction with out beloved pets. Mumu is very blessed to be with Rinpoche.

  4. Choong on Jan 30, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    As human beings, we are as capable to help animals as we are to destroy them. The choice is ours. Mumu get well again.

  5. Denise Kuek on Mar 8, 2015 at 12:30 am

    Thank you so much for the kindness of all the people who took part to save Mumu’s life. I am so happy to see Mumu is healthy now. Life is equal, animals feel pain as human does, for the people who own pets, must really be observant as animals does not express their feeling clearly. Our careless might cause dangerous situation happen. Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness to Mumu, he is so lucky to have Rinpoche with him.

  6. Lucas Roth on Jul 6, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    i am so happy that mumu is okay now, he is so fortunate to have Rinpoche love him so much the way Rinpoche does. please stay healthy mumu and live long so you can always keep Rinpoche happy.

  7. beatrix ooi on Mar 14, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    Great to know that Mumu is well now. He’s just like a human to me, he seems to understand everything. He knows what’s good for him and just listened. He is the smartest dog ever, and very obedient of course. He is very friendly, will always greet people with kisses. I love him very much. May you live long Mumu!
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche!
    Love, beatrix.

    nice to know that mumu is okay, i love him so much. a dog like mumu doesn’t come aroung all the time so you should appreciate him. hahaha have fun mumu

  9. bengkooi on Sep 14, 2011 at 7:24 am

    I thought I would let everyone know that since this post was written, Mumu was ill with the same problem (pancreatitis) another two times. Each time, it was unexpected, silent, without warning and really quite scary, simply because you dont even know it is there. Both times, we were alerted to the problem by KB, who is Mumu’s main caregiver. KB loves Mumu and the other dogs, and spends lots of time each day caring for them, feeding, grooming, cooking, playing etc.

    KB noticed that Mumu was a little more down than usual, and immediately warned the rest of the team. Lo and behold, when we went back to Dr Prem’s, it was that horrible pancreatitis again! We finally solved Mumu’s chronic pancreatitis with a long-term treatment of antacids, frequent meals, and regular blood tests. The antacids suppress the activity of the pancreas, which is a huge help. Along with the frequent small easily digestible meals, this reduces the chances of the pancreas acting up. And the blood test is just to make sure.

    And the many pujas that were done for Mumu made a huge difference…

    These people are changing the way we look at animals through their actions, right?
    Good work!!!

  11. martin on Jul 15, 2010 at 12:11 am

    I have a lot to thank Mumu for. It was due to Mumu’s illness that so many Kecharians were there at Dr Prem’s clinic at the same time i was there. The “adorable chow-chow” pictured above is Chedee, my dog. I placed her under the care of Dr Prem when i was at a certain cross-road and had tough decisions to make.
    I was first introduced to Kechara on May 6 by Su Ming who happened to be at the clinic when i was visiting Cheedee and she talked to me about Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Kechara.
    It was also when saw Beng Kooi for the first time there. BK was in the little cubible sitting on the floor with the door shut. Mumu was on her lap and out of sight. So all i saw was a person sitting on the floor in a cubicle of an animal clinic. It was a confusing day.
    Thank you Mumu…and 0h, Su Ming also.

  12. thierryfornow on Jul 14, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    It is inspiring to see so much care and attention for Mumu. Mumu is not just a dog, he is a being with feelings, emotions, worries, joys and sadnesses; animal, human or other beings share the same aspiration to be free from suffering and to be happy. As spiritual practitioners, Rinpoche and his students care for Mumu the dog as a being in need of help, and they give unconditionally and sincerely. They give with no hidden agenda, they give because it is the right thing to do.
    The fact they they care so much should be seen as an inspiration for all of us to do the same with the beings around us, family, friends, neighbours, colleagues, pets and more.

  13. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:55 am

    Thanks to the skills of Dr Prem, Mumu is now back in good health. Beng Kooi and KB who have made great effort to care for Mumu also contributed tremendously to Mumu coming back from the brink. Elize and Johnny from Wow Wow Pets came regularly to check up on Mumu. Many Kecharians were very concerned about Mumu’s health as Mumu is the mascot for Kechara Animal Sanctuary and Rinpoche’s pet. Much guru devotion is shown by both Beng Kooi and KB who nursed Mumu back to health. KB even slept at the vet with Mumu and updated Rinpoche regularly, what devotion and love.

  14. Peter on Jul 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    It is very encouraging to see so much tender loving care invested in Mumu by Rinpoche, KB and the team. It is truly a lesson to behold when it comes to the idea of an animal being a ‘mother sentient being’ and they have all proven it for us in action!
    Yes, as always, Rinpoche’s eye for detail and a heart to educate his Kechara family and the rest is proven in this blog post so that all can learn more on how to care for their fellow mother sentient being and create the right and wholesome causes.
    It will be for sure that KAS will not be the typical dingy old shelter for animals but a Pure Land, a Kechara for their benefit and cause of liberation!

  15. margaretlee on Jul 7, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Mumu is Rinpoche’s little darling. Rinpoche loves mumu alot. When it comes to sickness , I do not see any difference between the suffering an animal would feel compared to that of a human. We feel the same pain, same discomfort. Yes I must say Mumu is very fortunate to be under the loving care of Rinpoche and the ladrang team, and it is under this constant and consistent care that our dear mumu could recover so fast. KB even offered to stay with mumu in the clinic, how wonderful! He kept mumu in company and that was very important as it gave mumu a sense of stability and companionship. Mumu would know that he was not alone.
    Rinpoche is very kind to provide a detailed research on pancreatitis so that pet owners could watch out for the early symptons and bring your pets to receive treatment soonest possible. Rinpoche does not want any being to suffer.

    So much love and care for a lil doggie. I am a little jealous.

  17. Tsetchi on May 29, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I am very happy that Mumu is well now. I can understand what you felt, for my little rat Tito I was praying everyday to have his sickness instead of him… unfortunately he did not survived…
    It is so good when our animals are healthy and happy again after a sickness.
    This is great that Mumu had so much friends to be with him at the clinic and that you have a really good veterinary.
    You will be abble to rest a little at night with Mumu now 🙂
    I send much love to Mumu !

  18. NewJV on May 29, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    Glad Mumu is alright, may he has continues good health n long life!

    The discovery of ancient Buddhist Monastery dated from 700 AD is amazing. Found in an archaeological excavation site at Moghalmari, India ,artifacts figure of Buddha and Buddhist inscriptions. The archeologists do believe that those structural components recovered are parts of a Buddhist monastic site . A more details study of inscriptions on clay tablets even suggested the presence of two monasteries on the basis of the structural plan. With the discovery of the site and the deciphering of the inscriptions has pointed that Buddhism had spread to India in the 7th century ago.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddhism and Hinduism are similar because of their architecture is vibrant and colourful. They both have dharma and believe in reincarnation. The symbolism and structure of a Hindu temples were dated century ago. I love to see their ancient architecture of temples wall and so forth. Its simply amazing looking at its structures , colour . To the Hindu, the colours have a very deep significance, transcending purely decorative values in their religion and culture. Great to know there are so many beautiful ancient Hindus Temples around the world. Would love to visit these places as stated in this post in the near future . Looking at the Virupaksha Temple, Ranganathaswamy Temple, Brihadeeswarar Temple to name a few tell all about the beauty of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Pilgrimage is traditionally done on foot and often takes weeks or months to complete.The pilgrimage is about much more then just the destination however, the journey itself is actually the most important part of the practice.

    Now with these knowledge of where some of the relics are located, I will be able to visit the temples holding such precious blessings.Thank you very much for sharing this good article.

    The most popular Buddhist nun cook Jeong Kwan, is a Seon Buddhist monk and chef of Korean cuisine. She lives in the Chunjinam Hermitage at the Baegyangsa temple in South Korea, where she cooks for fellow nuns and monks. She also cooks for visitors as well. Inspiring ….. she discovered her calling of spreading dharma through cooking adopting a vegetarian diet . What a way to start off. She credits her joining the temple and her achievements to her mother, that’s wonderful to remember her mother. Due to her popularity she was invited to appear on TV show and cooking all the way to New York. Inspiring read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrix Ooi for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these profound teachings and sharing Pastor Henry’s update of his daily practice with us. A good example to follow . Death is something that no one could escape for sure. Its good to meditate on death nor matter how busy we are. The whole process of death and visualizing it is highly important for us . Reading this post will have us wake up , its time and never too late for anyone to practice.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing of Kirlian Photography and Aura healing. The Kirlian photography technique is a very interesting method to capture the coronal discharge of certain subjects. Whether it is coloured aura or energy, I believe there are a certain energy that you emit out by what you are always of.

    Naturally, a lot of myths related to the subject emerged over time. And just like it is the case with many other spiritual and paranormal practices, there are plenty of believers who are ready to vouch for it, in spite of science having disproved their convictions.

    We have to move forward in life, become independent, responsible, self-sustaining and be happy. Leaving behind our comfort zone to live away from our family, spending our time meaningfully . Doing what we always loves to. It’s scary, living at home doing nothing, life is short and impermanence . Its never too late making a change in our life for the better. True life is lived when tiny changes occur. By changing nothing, nothing changes. All great changes are preceded by chaos. Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal. Change is inevitable. When we change our thinking, moving forward , letting go our comfort zone , it will change our life. No one will change for us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Good sharing to bring awareness to those not vegetarian. Watched the video feeling sad , the way the KFC chickens been abuse, suffered , cramped in small place before been packed into cages before slaughter . Chickens one of the most abused animals on the earth, often handled roughly, transporting in long distances on crowded vehicles. Chickens as seen in the video are suffering on an unparalleled scale. The cruelty of these chicken were exposed , bringing awareness of the sufferings of the KFC chickens at the farm. Its great to see some changes now yet choosing meatless or vegetarian is the best choice to stay healthy.

    Suck is a 2009 rock-and-roll vampire black comedy horror film. Sound interesting. All about a band member Jennifer is turned into a vampire, the band quickly gains popularity. Many people were then attracted to her newfound beauty. While on tour, the band members are each turned into vampires, one by one. As their infamy grows, the vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing learns that Jennifer is a vampire and vows to hunt her down. Well the story tells us…. Turning human to vampire and back to human , lastly back to vampire again. I have not watch this video but have read it though. I love listening to the songs….
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this horror film.

    Erich von Daniken’s brief is unwavering indeed. “Chariots of the Gods” written by Erich von Daniken tells us more, concerning the ancient mysteries of the world and are all related to Gods. It has endures as proof that Earth has been visited repeatedly by advanced aliens from other worlds. People from earth visited the outside world so its not possible that Aliens visited earth too. Its has proof that aliens indeed has visited earth thousand years ago. Erich von Daniken had examines ancient ruins, lost cities, spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that pointed to extra-terrestrial intervention in human history. Ancient mysteries of the world, such as the pyramids of Egypt and Mexico, ancient cave drawings, paintings theorizes extra-terrestrials did impacted early human life. The Easter Island statues and other archaeological anomalies were the work of extra-terrestrials. The early civilization could not have built such ancient pyramids of Egypt without the help of extra-terrestrials or “GODS”. Recording to them it was built by ‘GODS’ as in ancient texts. All still a mysteries and unanswered questions and so as many others ancient buildings, monuments and so forth around the world. Amazing and incredible looking at those ancient structures were built and why it was built at that time without modern machinery. Interesting watch which I truly enjoyed watching .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing the history and clear picture of the connection between Dorje Shugden and Setrap. HH the Dalai Lama blessed the Setrap Chapel in Gaden Monastery after all. He surely knew for sure the closeness of both Protector. Great lamas of Tibetan Buddhism, such as Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and many more had propitiated Setrap and Dorje Shugden for decades. The Dorje Shugden practice has been passed down by many generations of great lamas even the 14th Dalai Lama himself did composed a praise to Dorje Shugden . Its was Dorje Shugden that has saved and helped him to escape from Tibet during the Chinese invasion. Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit but instead an enlightened Being who has taken an oath to protect Lama Tsongkapa’s teachings. Interesting read …..may more people this post to understand better.

    Thubten Gyatso was the 13th Dalai Lama of Tibet. He was recognized as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama and was enthroned at the Potala Palace, but did not assume political power until after he had reached his maturity. His Holiness paid a short visit to China in order to bring an understanding between Tibet and China. He was the first Dalai Lama to realise fully the importance of social and economic development of the country. He introduced quite a number of humanitarian and progressive reforms which indeed benefited many people. During his reign , there was a period of confusion and uncertainty yet he brought many changes to his country and was well known in bringing peace , understanding between Tibet and China . Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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.
    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together!
