What is Zero Waste Movement

Z001

Have you heard of the zero waste movement before? What does it mean? Does it mean we don’t produce any rubbish or waste? Is that even possible? Contrary to what it may sound like, zero waste is not about not producing waste; rather, it is about reducing our consumption. Whenever possible, we should recycle or reuse, and produce as little waste as possible. We hope that, as a result of this, eventually nothing will be sent to the landfills, incinerators, or the ocean, and fewer resources will be needed to meet our needs.

Z002

Why is it so important to prevent waste? We have limited resources on the planet we are living on, but the population continues to grow. If we do not control how we use our resources, the future generations are going to suffer. As it is, due to the waste we produce, we have polluted the air, the water, and the environment we are living in. Global warming and climate change are the challenging issues we are facing now. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the U.S. EPA), 42 percent of greenhouse gas emissions are contributed by the production and use of goods not limited to food, products, and packaging. For example, 18 billion pounds of plastic waste ends up in the ocean each year, of which 40 per cent is packaging.

 

25 Places That Have Implemented Zero Waste Strategy

Realising how global warming and climate change are affecting our daily lives, some cities in the world have adopted the zero-waste strategy as a proactive initiative to combat global warming and climate change issues. Let’s take a look at how these pioneering 25 places from all around the world implement the zero waste strategy.

1. Vancouver, Canada

Z003

The directors of Metro Vancouver unanimously voted to adopt a zero-waste approach in 2006. In 2018, Zero Waste 2040 was approved. Strategies to achieve this include reducing single-use items, composting organic waste, and prioritizing a “circular economy” where innovative design, reuse, repair, and remanufacturing of products prevents unnecessary waste.

 

2. Bute, Scotland

Z004

In 2015, the Isle of Bute was selected as the second town to participate in Scotland’s Zero Waste Towns initiative. The pilot project’s “inspire, educate, empower” community action and circular economy approach seems to be working: reuse and recycling have increased, and domestic waste to landfills has decreased. Even unsold loaves of bread are being put to use—diverted from the landfill to Bute Brew Co. where they’re recycled into craft beer.

 

3. Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Z005

In August 2018, this city of glitz signed C40’s “Advancing Towards Zero Waste Declaration,” becoming one of just two Middle Eastern municipalities to commit. Policies and programs were created to reach C40 goals of reducing 15 percent of each resident’s waste by 2030. Dubai hopes to divert 70 percent of waste from landfills and incinerators by 2030 as well.

 

4. Flanders, Belgium

Z006

This Flemish region of Belgium has been steadily working towards zero-waste since approving their first Waste Decree in the 1980s. Policies have transformed over time from an initial focus on disposal to recycling, source separation, and prevention. Today, nearly 75 percent of residential waste (the highest percentage in Europe) is diverted from landfills. Waste generation has remained stable in spite of population increase and economic growth.

 

5. Gipuzkoa, Spain

Z007

Rather than moving forward with multi million dollar plans to build an incinerator plant, this Basque Country province opted instead to prioritize prevention, source separation, reuse, and recycling. In 2011, they set a goal of achieving 70 percent diversion from landfills by 2020. In less than five years, the province reached over 50 percent waste reduction—with some municipalities reaching 80 to 90 percent—making Gipuzkoa the fastest transition toward zero waste in Europe.

 

6. Cappanori, Italy

Z008

When school teacher Rossano Ercolini and zero-waste expert Dr. Paul Connett rallied residents to prevent the construction of an incinerator in this Tuscan town, they knew the only alternative was waste reduction. Ercolini launched a pilot door-to-door collection program and, in 2007, convinced Capannori to become the first in Europe to declare a zero-waste strategy. The town pledged to divert one hundred percent from landfills by 2020 and inspired others to do the same. Today, more than 275 municipalities in Italy—over six million inhabitants—are working toward zero-waste.

 

7. Hout Bay, South Africa

Z009

When FIFA announced South Africa as host of the 2010 World Cup, a small community in Cape Town set out to clean up. Led by NGO Thrive Hout Bay, local schools, residents, and businesses banded together toward a 2010 zero-waste goal. In partnership with local government, they launched a household waste drop-off program that proved so successful it inspired other drop-off programs across the city.

 

8. Guam

Z010

Members of community organizations, government agencies, schools, and other stakeholders began mapping out Guam’s Blueprint for Zero Waste in 2012. Recognizing that education and proper development will be a work in progress, Guam’s zero-waste plan has no defined end date and focuses instead on a 20-year, four-phase approach.

 

9. Cashel, Ireland

Z011

This County Tipperary town became Ireland’s first Toward Zero Waste Community in 2017 when Irish environmental charity VOICE launched the “Towards Zero Waste Cashel” pilot program. With an emphasis on zero waste as a journey rather than a destination, the initiative focuses on waste prevention, education, composting, community collaboration, and strategies toward a circular economy.

 

10. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Z012

At the heart of zero-waste efforts in Buenos Aires are the cartoneros—impoverished waste pickers who were out in the street sorting recyclables from trash long before the capital city’s zero-waste laws were announced in 2005. While such laws include an intended ban on landfilling recyclable and compostable waste by 2020, private waste management companies profit from landfilling and may stall the city from reaching that goal. Still, environmental NGOs and citizens like the cartoneros continue to advocate for implementation of zero-waste strategies.

 

11. New York City, United States

Z013

As part of the larger OneNYC vision to become “the most resilient, equitable, and sustainable city in the world,” the Big Apple set a goal in 2015 to achieve zero waste by 2030. One of the strategies, an expanded organic waste curbside collection program, now serves more than three million residents and is the largest program of its kind in the United States.

 

12. San Francisco, United States

Z014

In 2002, San Francisco became the first large U.S. city to make a zero-waste commitment. Although its ambitious 2020 zero waste goal will probably not be reached, the city has taken significant public policy steps such as implementing the country’s first mandatory composting law and first ban on single-use plastic bags in drugstores and supermarkets.

 

13. Ljubljana, Slovenia

Z015

Announcing its zero-waste goal in 2014, Ljubljana became Europe’s first capital city to commit. Thanks to effective door-to-door collection and clear communication on waste reduction and reuse, Ljubljana has eliminated the need for incinerators and was named a European Green Capital in 2016. The city is on track to reach a goal of increasing separate collection to nearly 80 percent and halving their amount of residual waste by 2025.

 

14. Kamikatsu, Japan

Z016

In 2003, Kamikatsu became Japan’s first municipality to declare plans for zero waste. This small town has made huge strides toward their 2020 goal and has eliminated the need for greenhouse gas-emitting incinerators. Residents sort trash into 45 categories, successfully recycling, composting, and reusing 80 percent of all waste.

 

15. Santa Monica, United States

Z017

The City of Santa Monica surveyed the needs and concerns of the community in 2013 before adopting their Zero Waste Strategic Operations Plan in 2014. To reach their goal of 95 percent diversion from landfills by 2030, this Southern California coastal city is creating convenient ways for locals and visitors to separate organic waste from recyclables and trash, such as placing composting bins at city facilities and improving services within multi-unit dwellings.

 

16. Pune, India

Z018

In pushing for safer working conditions and forming the first waste pickers’ union in India, pickers in Pune drew attention to challenges of waste management and possibilities of zero waste through door-to-door collection. In 2012, Pune launched a zero waste program to educate residents on sorting waste at the source, resulting in an increase in compliance and decrease in waste sent to landfills.

 

17. Međimurje, Croatia

Z019

As far back as 2006, seven municipalities of Međimurje County were already working together on waste management; so they were perfectly positioned to join the Zero Waste Europe network in 2015. The county’s formal commitment includes reduction of waste to landfills, 70 percent waste recovery (recycling, composting, etc.) by 2020, and avoidance of incineration.

 

18. Sardinia, Italy

Z020

This island paradise is proving that zero waste is possible in high density tourist destinations. Door-to-door collection, a pay-as-you-throw system, incentives for high-performing municipalities, and penalties for low-performers are just some of the strategies that have lifted Sardinia out of the dumps. Once Italy’s worst performing region, the separate collection rate increased from 3.8 percent in 2003 to 56 percent in 2016. The city hopes to reach 80 percent by 2022.

 

19. Taiwan

Z021

Concerned about the reliance on incinerators, citizens pressured the government to shift focus from symptoms to source. In 2003, the Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration implemented a zero waste policy, calling on businesses and residents to take responsibility to reduce the volume of waste 75 percent by 2020. Banning disposable utensils from restaurants resulted in reduction of disposable chopsticks use by 44 million pairs in 2014.

 

20. Sweden

Z022

Sweden made international headlines when they burned through their own trash and began importing waste to feed their incinerator plants. Arguably, Sweden has nearly reached the goal—less than one percent of household waste ends up in landfills, while about 50 percent is incinerated and converted to energy. The country has been praised by some for leading a “recycling revolution” and criticized by others for their reliance on burning rubbish.

 

21. San Diego, United States

Downtown San Diego Skyline Aerial

In 2015, this surf city officially announced its intention to divert 75 percent of waste being sent to landfills by 2020, 90 percent by 2035, and zero waste by 2040. Non-profit Zero Waste San Diego provides zero-waste educational events and consultations in an effort to support residents and local businesses.

 

22. Wales

Z024

Wales’ 2010 “Toward Zero Waste” declaration included strategies to reach 70 percent recycling of waste by 2025 and zero waste by 2050. In 2017, the recycling rate reached 63.8 percent for municipal solid waste (inclusive of plastics and packaging). The UK country is well on its way to achieving its 2025 goal and is second only to Germany for recycling rates around the world.

 

23. Targu Lapus, Romania

Z025

Targu Lapus was the first city in Romania to scrap incinerator plans and make a zero-waste commitment. In 2014, they joined the Zero Waste Europe network, declaring an ambitious goal of eight percent diversion from landfills by 2020 with a focus on composting and recycling.

 

24. Alaminos, Philippines

Z026

In 2009, Alaminos City Council passed the first zero-waste city ordinance in the Philippines. Thanks to support from the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) and the combined efforts of the community and local government, composting and waste separation have become the new norm in a place where open dumping and burning of waste was once an everyday occurrence.

 

25. Auckland, New Zealand

The city of Melbourne, Australia.

This Kiwi city is taking a collaborative approach to tackling their 2040 zero-waste goal. Auckland Council turned to the public—including businesses, community groups, waste industry reps, Māori, youth, and other residents—for feedback on a revised plan. “The Auckland Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018: Working Together for Zero Waste” was recently approved, joining Auckland with 22 other cities and regions around the world who have committed to C40’s Zero Waste Declaration.

How To Start A Zero Waste Lifestyle?

Z028

As an individual, how can we contribute towards the reduction of waste in order to protect our environment and the limited resources we have? A few simple lifestyle changes can really help.

  • Before we buy anything, think about whether we really need the items. Most of the time we are making a compulsive purchase that’s not based on actual need.
  • Instead of buying cleaning products for specific purposes, we can switch to using products such as Castile soap that can be used to clean almost everything.
  • Instead of using plastic bags when we go grocery shopping, bring our own tote bags.
  • Consume less processed foods so packaging can be reduced.
  • Use glass jars to store our food or drinks so the usage of plastic can be eliminated.
  • Use old shirts or sheets to make storage bags for onions, potatoes, garlic, etc. to replace plastics bags or containers.
  • If possible, use a reusable straw made from stainless steel.
  • Reduce the usage of disposable items such as disposable cutlery, cups, straws, plates, bowls, etc.
  • Compost organic waste such as fruits and vegetables.
  • Shop in a zero-waste shop where we are able to buy items in bulk without packaging.

    ஏன் கழிவுப் பொருள்களைத் தடுக்க வேண்டும்? காரணம் நாம் வாழும் உலகில் வரையறுக்கப்பட்ட அளவிலேயே இயற்கை வளங்கள் உள்ளன. ஆனால் மக்கள் தொகையோ நாளுக்கு நாள் அதிகரித்துக் கொண்டே போகிறது. நாம் நமது இயற்கை வளங்களின் பயன்பாட்டை ஒரு கட்டுப்பாட்டுக்குள் வைக்கவில்லை என்றால் நமது எதிர்கால சந்ததியினர் பாதிக்கப்படுவார்கள். கழிவுக் குப்பைகள் அதிகரிப்பதால் காற்று, தண்ணீர், நாம் வாழும் சுற்றுச் சூழல் இவையனைத்தும் பாதிக்கப்படுகிறது. அதோடு மட்டுமல்லாமல், உலக வெப்ப நிலையிலும், சீதோஷ்ண நிலையிலும் மாற்றங்கள் ஏற்படுகிறது. இவற்றைச் சரி செய்ய நாம் தடுமாறுகிறோம், ஒவ்வொரு வருடமும் 18 பில்லியன் பிளாஸ்டிக் குப்பைகள் கடலில் போய் சேறுகின்றன. நமது செயலால் ஒரு நாள் உலகம் உயிரினங்கள் வாழ்வதற்கே தகுதி அற்ற இடமாக மாறி விடலாம் என்ற அச்சம் ஏற்படுகிறது. மாற்றம் ஒவ்வொருவரிடமிருந்தும் வரவேண்டும்.

  2. Balachandran on Sep 3, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    உலகம் முழுவதும் உள்ள நாடுகளில் சுற்றுச்சூழலைப் பாதிக்காத வகையில் குப்பைகளை அழிப்பது என்பது மிகப் பெரிய சவாலாக உள்ளது. உலகத்தைக் காப்பாற்ற வேண்டும் என்ற சிந்தனையை மாற்றி , எப்படி நாம் கழிவு பொருள்களைக் குறைக்கலாம் என்பதைப் பற்றி யோசிக்கலாம். முதலில் ஒவ்வொரு வீட்டிலிருந்தும் ஆரம்பிக்க வேண்டும். பிறகு நமது அலுவலகம், அண்டை வீடு, கிராமம் மற்றும் பட்டணம் என்று படிப்படியாக முயற்சியை மேற்கொள்ளவேண்டும்.

    அதிகமான அழிக்கமுடியாத கழிவுகளைக் கொண்டுவரக்கூடிய பொருள்களை நமது பயன்பாட்டிலிருந்து குறைக்கவோ, தடுக்கவோ அல்லது மாற்றி அமைக்கவோ முடியும். நாம் பயன்படுத்தும் பேட்டரிகளை அழிப்பதே மிகப் பெரிய சவாலாக உள்ளது. எது எப்படி இருப்பினும் சுற்றுச் சூழலைப் பாதிக்கக் கூடிய பொருள்களை நமது பயன்பாட்டிலிருந்து சிறுக,சிறுக குறைப்பதே சாலச் சிறந்தது. இப்படிப்பட்ட செயல் நமது வருங்கால சந்ததியினருக்குப் பேருதவியாக இருக்கும். அவ்வகையில் கெச்சாரா சூப் கிச்சன் (Kechara Soup Kithcen) தன்னாலான உதவியாக துணிமணிகளை மறு பயன்பாட்டுக்காக சேகரிக்கிறது. நீங்களும் இந்த செயலுக்கு உதவியாக இருக்கலாம்.

    Thank you for this article. By reading this article, i agree that we should follow 3R which is reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible as it helps to make the environment clean. Its is true our planet’s resources is finishing day by day, so we as a humans has to take responsibility to prevent the usage of all the resources.

    At the same time, day by day, our planets land is finishing as humans population is increasing and we are filling our lands with waste. So to make everything equal we should reduce our waste as much as we can. Thank you.

    It’s inspiring to see how all the cities and countries working towards zero wastage to save the planet. The zero-waste movement is a lifestyle where people aim to eliminate their trash output completely. A good idea where there is no means of plastics, no wrappers, no garbage which will create a better, healthier environment. The zero-waste movement wants to reduce plastic pollution not by recycling, but precycling. I am glad that Malaysia is also putting effort to ensure that we separate our recyclables according to types. And reducing the use of plastic bags from supermarkets is also a good move. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing such motivating topic. 👍👏😎

  5. Katie Choong on Jun 5, 2019 at 4:01 am

    It’s good to understand zero waste concept. What matters the most is going zero waste. If we don’t take action or practice, what’s the point of getting knowledge. I personally think zero waste movement shall start from young at home. Hoping to make it an increasingly popular lifestyle in near future. 👍

  6. Samfoonheei on Jun 2, 2019 at 12:54 pm

    Well….have not heard of this zero –waste movement before till I read this interesting and very knowledgeable for every one to help to safe this earth. The zero-waste movement is a lifestyle where people aim to eliminate their trash output completely. A good idea where there is no means of plastics, no wrappers, no garbage which will create a better, healthier environment. The zero-waste movement wants to reduce plastic pollution not by recycling, but precycling. A zero waste approach also protects the health of communities by reducing pollution in the air, water and soil by keeping toxics and waste out. Very good approach indeed. As we all know plastic can take thousands of years to biodegrade. It will takes up valuable space in landfill sites and is polluting the natural environment, having a significant impact on our oceans as well. Every things starts young , it important to bring awareness of it to the younger generation before it too late.
    A big hand of applaud to those wonderful places from all around the world as they are implementing the zero waste strategy. They have adopted the zero-waste strategy measures as to combat global warming and climate change issues. That’s nice and hoping more countries will follow.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

  7. Julia Tan on May 29, 2019 at 9:21 am

    It’s inspiring to see how all the cities and countries working towards zero wastage to save the planet. I wished so much that my city my country will be doing this very soon.

    In a development country like Malaysia, properly tend to focus more on developing the concrete part instead of the green part. This part of the development is eating up the green part tremendously. Although many NGOs and individuals are working on the green part, yet without government support (this is always the least important part in their list) we have the limit to speed up the process. Not putting the blame to the government but we do need to work together to achieve this. This is a big goal. They rather spending billion dollars project on building concrete which will bring them dollars of benefits than on green program for generation to come. People don’t see the future that will effect our children.

    Rather than talking big, Zero wastage can start from home. Start from educating our children. Starts from our own community. Inspired others to do the same. That’s the way to go…

    Let’s go it now!

    Every corner on Earth is beautiful, but once mankind “invaded” & take over the Earth.. all sentient beings are struggling & suffering a lot.

    Mankind’s technologies & inventions are powerful but they are creating countless of side effects which are not bearable for the Earth. Due to convenience, selfishness & laziness, mankind have been inventing all sort of products.

    We shall really think what good have we bring to the Earth in return..we shall do whatever we can before the Earth decided to take revenge.. “natural disasters” are not 100% natural I think..

    Having conscious living around us is very important this day to the envoirament. Especially the global growing of people in this planet. All the waste people simple throw without proper take care will cause the life treatning to other living being in this earth. Raise our awareness look around us. If we don’t care eventually will effect us and the whole planet. So, start thinking this matter we will able to save and protect all the living being stay together in this earth.

    Getting rid of waste without affecting the environment is a big challenge for countries globally. I think instead of thinking how we can save the world, let’s start with how we can reduce waste within our own house and backyard. Then move on to our office, neighbourhood, community. There is a long list of products we can cut down on or eliminate totally. The disposal of used batteries is also another big challenge with almost everyone having a phone and other appliances and gadgets.

    In Kechara Soup Kitchen, we have an empowerment project using recycle clothes and cloth materials. You may want to support this cause.

    While all the acts above are noble but it seems to me as a stop gap measure rather than the ultimately solution. I don’t believe the zero waste initiative will happen but it is a “better than none at all” situation. The best word to describe the current situation for the lack of a better word.

  12. June Kang on May 29, 2019 at 2:10 am

    “Convenient” is the keyword that make zero waste more difficult to implement. It is so convenient to buy a plastic bottle of water and throw away the bottle at the end of the day. It is also very convenient to pack food using the plastic containers provided by the restaurant and throw away the container at the end of the day. However, do you realize that the cost of convenient is very expensive. This planet can’t keep up with our demands, the resources can not be replaced so fast or some even can’t be replaced. And at the end, the suffering is us and our next generation. Convenient is always associated with our selfishness. If we care more about others, we will also care about our environmental and reduce using the resource in this planet and more on reuse and recycle. We can make a little different and it is start by oneself.

  13. Tek Lee on May 29, 2019 at 1:36 am

    The essential role that at least we can play to safe the earth is actually lessen on wastage. For example wastage on food, wastage on the things that we use daily. Many countries has already started on recycle, reuse and reduce. To recycle things that are recyclable, for example plastics, glass and papers. Reuse plastics that are hard to dispose, for example using plastics bottles to plant flower, convert them into our daily use utensils etc. And, to reduce using things that are hard to dispose, for example, plastics. Many big organisation, especially those in food and beverage industries, have already reduced on the usage of plastics. They change from giving plastic bags to paper bags, reduce usage of straws etc.
    There’s one of the ways of saving the earth is to reduce food wastage. Just like what Kechara Soup Kitchen is doing, to prevent restaurants and big hotels from wasting surplus food, they actually collect surplus food and channel it to the needies, like homes and urban poor families. To the needies, don’t even talk about surplus food, many of them can’t even have three full meal a day. Each of us live in the earth, we should play a part in saving our earth, every single small action will count.

  14. Vivian Ong on May 29, 2019 at 1:34 am

    Each and everyone of us need to play our own part in saving the earth. We need to reduce the things we buy by thinking whether we really need the item or not. We also need to control our food intake by ordering food which is enough to eat and even though we cannot finish, we should pack it into tupperwares to reheat it back the next day. We should not just waste food by throwing it knowing that it can be eaten or can be given to someone who needs it. Another way to reduce the use of plastics is to constantly use recycle bags for our grocery shopping.

  15. Andrea Lai on May 29, 2019 at 12:20 am

    In my opinion, the very first start of preventing wastage is from ourselves. Just basically look at our very own room, how many things we had brought and kept. We always take opportunity to get more where ever there are some gigantic sales without realising our limitations. Actually over spending is also another wastage hence we ended up being penniless. Therefore, we should make plan to secure our saving as well as our expenses. If we can’t even change our habits, how can we serve to the society?

  16. pammie yap on May 28, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    I’ve seen quite a lot of innovative ideas using recycled items and they are really useful in many ways as seen in the pic below.
    I am glad that Malaysia is also putting effort to ensure that we separate our recyclables according to types. Although not all the states implemented the move but instead of waiting for the government to push for it, we should do our own part. Eg when we take away, we can use our own containers and bags so that we can use it again instead of throwing the take away containers and plastic bags. And reducing the use of plastic bags from supermarkets is also a good move. We should buy bio degradable bags for other uses. Small steps go a long way.

    Landfills are the worst kind of a disaster that can befall any country. Many of the richer nations will send their waste to poorer countries whereby they are put into holes in the ground and continuously filled until not longer possible and then overlaid with soil.

    This kind of activity destroys the earth and the land cannot be useful anymore.

    I am glad to note that many cities, communities and nations are taking part to reduce waste with targeted datelines to fulfill their goals.

    Each of us should do your best and the guidelines given in this article is highly a possibility for each of us. Let us save the mother earth which we have all contributed to her contamination.

  18. Sharon Ong on May 16, 2019 at 3:12 am

    Tsem Rinpoche said – Every action creates a future. If we want to leave beautiful earth to our future generation, we need to work towards zero waste as the modern lifestyle has resulted in many plastic disposable items that are detrimental to the environment. Plastic takes up to 1000 years to decompose and imagine how huge our landfills will be if we do not reduce our plastic usage. Given how much plastic is being used on a daily basis and how long it takes to decompose, all the more reason why we should look into eliminating these in our lives.

    The tips given in the blog post are really useful and will be sharing it with others as well.

    Zero waste movement is about reducing the use of resources or materials. Whenever possible, we try to reuse and recycle. Plastic is the main contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, our oceans are also badly damaged by the plastics. Therefore, it is important to cut down the usage of plastic.

    As an individual, we can start to get involved in this movement in various ways. When we go for grocery shopping, bring our own bags that can be reused, not those that are to be disposed of. When we pack food, we can bring our own container. Stainless steel containers will be better because they are more lasting. Go and shop in a zero-waste grocery shop because they don’t use any plastic packaging and we bring our own containers to keep what we want to purchase.

    If we don’t reduce the usage of plastic now, our future generations will suffer, they will face the challenge of lesser resources and an environment that is so badly damaged. As it is, we are already suffering from climate change and global warming effect. We can revert the situation if each of us starts to do our part to reduce the usage of plastic.

    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.

    Every time we walk into a store and buy something made from leather, we are directly contributing towards the cruelty enacted upon these poor animals. Please everyone, please stop supporting cruelty towards animals, they are sentient living beings too who feel love and pain. Can you imagine yourself being skinned alive? Just the thought of it is painful, but this is what is happening to these animals, they are being skinned alive! And to add salt on wound, their limbs are cut off to prevent them from escaping, and all of these is done without anaesthetic, so you can imagine how painful and traumatic it is for the poor animals.

    Please share this article with as many friends as you can to create awareness towards animal cruelty. Let’s stand up for these animals who cannot express themselves through words. Please always be kind to the animals, please always be kind to ourselves and stop hurting others.

    Today, life is very different, “a giant leap for mankind” to borrow the words of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Tibetans have much more freedom to develop their abilities and opportunity to use them to their fullest. For example, Jampa Ringzin who certainly has the talent for sports, has had the opportunity to develop his baseball skills and as importantly, has been able to access the job he has now been recruited into, at a world class level. Under the old structure in Tibet, he would not have these similar opportunities or choice. This is really human development.

    Many other Tibetans are very important examples of people who encompass what the New Tibet is today – a place full of potential to live a long, healthy and creative life, to be knowledgeable, and to have access to resources needed for a decent standard of living. And there is better news. Once these ABCs of human development are there, they open up opportunities for progress in other aspects of life.

    We all know that no one can guarantee human happiness, and the choices people make are pretty much their own concern. But the process of human development, at its most basic, should create an environment for people, individually and collectively, to develop to their full potential and to have a reasonable chance of leading productive and creative lives that they value. This, the New Tibet provides. A new Tibet for Tibetans without the failing Central Tibetan Administration (Tibetan refugee governing body) in Dharamsala, North India.

    Thank you, Martin for sharing these incredible accurate explanations of how Rinpoche help each and every single sentient being that he came across. Rinpoche was indeed a bodhisattva with a thousand arms that had the ability to do many things at once and yet precise. Rinpoche also have the ability to handle so many different kinds of neurosis in his students and dissect them down to the core of the problem and then heal it. There is no one in the world that I have met that can do and willing to do such a thing. May Rinpoche take a swift rebirth and come back to us.

    Padmasambhava

    he monk Santaraksita suggests to King Trisong Detsen (khri srong lde brtsan, c. 742-800) that he invite Padmasambhava to assist with the founding of Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first Buddhist monastery. On his arrival, the master offers a series of prophecies and tames Tibet’s local spirits who are resisting the introduction of Buddhism. The Testament of Wa also has the master overseeing several irrigation projects in the area around Samye. Such details have led some scholars to suggest that irrigation, and the spirit taming that would have entailed, may have been an area of particular expertise for the master.

    Sunrise Dorje Shugden Puja in Kechara Forest Retreat

    This morning, I invited the people who I saw were up and around for a morning sunrise Dorje Shugden wisdom puja. Although the sun had already risen, there was still a lot of mist. We went to the highest point in Kechara Forest Retreat which has very good views and is surrounded by green hills. We first went to the beautiful Manjushri image and made prayers and recited mantras, then circumambulated. Then we proceeded to begin the puja in the grassy area on Manjushri Hill. We had a lovely puja and it was very nice to have the students who were awake and around to join as they are spiritual people. Afterwards we all went to Manjushri fish pond and circumambulated there too.

    Loma Gyonma, known as Pita Parnasvari in Sanskrit, is one of the most efficacious healing Buddhas within Tibetan Buddhism. Her name literally means “The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves”. She is also known as “Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin” in some traditions and is considered an emanation of the Buddha Tara. She manifests as a deity that has mastered all the mysteries of the forest and therefore nature, which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, their causes, destroys harmful spirits and enriches our lives with good health. Therefore Loma Gyonma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases.

    As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

    The word “savari” in Sanskrit refers to the ancient Savara tribe who were known to wears skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunted with bows and arrows. Due to their culture which was heavily based on nature, they were known to be masters of the healing medicinal properties of herbs and plants.

    Nageshvaraja is also sometimes called Nagaraja. His name literally means ‘Tathagatha King of the Nagas’, known as ‘Luwang Gyalpo’ in Tibetan. He is also one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas as listed within the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps that we prostrate to in order to purify heavy negative actions.

    On October 21, 2017 Kechara had the merits to invite the holy statue of Buddha Nageshvaraja to our land. A group of Kecharians gathered to welcome Nageshvaraja and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, they packed and sewed everything into yellow cloth bags together with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

    After the statue was sealed, Nageshvaraja was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for the statue. After he had been placed on the pedestal, the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

    Dark Watchers is a mystical entities are believed to reside in the misty hillside of Big Sur in the Santa Lucia Mountains. The early Spanish explorers and Mexican ranchers that came after referred to these creatures as “Los Vigilantes Oscuros.” In modern times, they came to be known as “The Dark Watchers.”

    The Dark Watchers are a group of migratory entities that have appeared in California Folklore for supposedly the past several hundred years and are purportedly stalking travelers along the Santa Lucia Mountains. They are apparently giant human-like phantoms that are only seen at twilight, and they are usually spotted standing silhouetted against the night sky along the ridges and peaks of the mountains. These beings are believed to possess incredible hearing as well as impeccable eyesight. They are also immune to high-tech detection and prefer to only reveal themselves to travelers or trekkers who are equipped with simple items like hats and sticks.

    The liturgy of Dharma Protector practice is called ‘kangso’ and it is broken up into several parts including the invocation, praise, kawang, serkyem offering, mantra recitation, enthronement and dedication.

    The kawang liturgy is a confessional practice in which the practitioner engages in a specific visualisation meant to purify tremendous amounts of negative karma. Before delving into the technicalities of the kawang contemplation, we first need to have an understanding of karma.

    At the heart of a Dharma Protector’s kangso, or fulfilment ritual, is the recitation of the kawang liturgy, otherwise known as kangshag. Literally meaning the ‘clearing of obstacles’, this special confessional prayer utilises tantric visualisation combined with recitation in order to tap into Dorje Shugden’s power to significantly purify accumulated negative karma threatening to obstruct our practice.

    Corresponding with the amount of obstacles that are to be removed, the kawang visualisation is particularly graphic. Therefore, we should dwell on the real meaning of the contemplation and not on its wrathful and violent description. It also follows that if the negative karma that obstructs our practice is forceful, then the pujas to counter it have to be equally intense.

    We approach the recitation of the kawang by visualising our delusions, negative karma, habituations and so forth in the form of a man or a woman. Then, a dakini who is an emanation of Vajrayogini appears, wielding a cemetery knife, to slay the being who is the personification of our negativities. She slices the body in such a way that uncovers the inner organs, after which she makes the seven types of offerings from the remains of the corpse i.e. the wrathful sensory offerings.

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

    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
